American women will continue to dominate tennis with US Open win by Sloane Stevens

On Saturday, Sloane Stephens made history, jumping more than 900 spots as the second unseeded woman ever to win a Grand Slam at the US Open and the first unranked female to win her maiden title. The 24-year-old, back this summer from almost a year off the courts because of a foot injury, played a near-perfect game with a 6-3 6-0 victory against 15th-seeded Madison Keys, who was playing with a heavily bandaged right thigh. ‘It’s incredible. I honestly had surgery January 23 and if someone had told me I’d win the US Open, I would have said it’s impossible,’ said Stephens, who will pocket a record $3.7million check. In the first all-American US Open women’s final since Serena Williams beat her sister Venus in 2002, Stephens made only six unforced errors to frustrate Keys. But not many know much about how the rising star, who was down to 957th in the world at the start of August. And with experts saying she could be the next Serena, we let you get to know the newest champion.

Facebook caught yet again lying about it’s numbers

Senior analyst at Pivotal Research, Brian Wieser, has issued a report pointing out that Facebook has been claiming to reach more people than U.S. Census data says exist. Facebook has been promoting itself as reaching 41 million adults between the ages of 18 and 24. However, Census data says there are just 31 million. And Facebook also says it reaches 60 million people between the ages of 25 and 34, while the U.S. Census estimates that total to be 35 million. Wieser says he began his own inquiry into the data situation after Australia’s AdNews found discrepancies between Facebook claims and Census data in that country. A Facebook spokesperson says the estimates the platform uses “are not designed to match population or census estimates.” Instead they are “designed to estimate how many people in a given area are eligible to see an ad a business might run.” WHY THIS MATTERS: However it tries to justify use of the faulty numbers, Facebook will not ingratiate itself to advertisers for offering up misleading data. Wieser told The New York Times, “The buyers and marketers I talked to were unaware of this and they are using [the Facebook data] for planning purposes. Buyers are still going to buy from them and plan for them, but this is something that doesn’t need to be an error and puts every other metric they might provide into... read more

Taking children and how the system “profits off of pain”

Foster Care as Punishment: The New Reality of ‘Jane Crow’ Maisha Joefield briefly lost custody of a child who wandered away while she was taking a bath. By STEPHANIE CLIFFORD and JESSICA SILVER-GREENBERG JULY 21, 2017- nytimes.com Maisha Joefield thought she was getting by pretty well as a young single mother in Brooklyn, splurging on her daughter, Deja, even though money was tight. When Deja was a baby, she bought her Luvs instead of generic diapers when she could. When her daughter got a little older, Ms. Joefield outfitted the bedroom in their apartment with a princess bed for Deja, while she slept on a pullout couch. She had family around, too. Though she had broken up with Deja’s father, they spent holidays and vacations together for Deja’s sake. Ms. Joefield’s grandmother lived across the street, and Deja knew she could always go to her great-grandmother’s apartment in an emergency. One night, exhausted, Ms. Joefield put Deja to bed, and plopped into a bath with her headphones on. “By the time I come out, I’m looking, I don’t see my child,” said Ms. Joefield, who began frantically searching the building. Deja, who was 5, had indeed headed for the grandmother’s house when she couldn’t find her mother, but the next thing Ms. Joefield knew, it was a police matter. “I’m thinking, I’ll explain to them what happened, and I’ll get my child,” Ms. Joefield said. For most parents, this scenario might be a panic-inducing, but hardly insurmountable, hiccup in the long trial of raising a child. Yet for Ms. Joefield and women in her circumstances — living in poor... read more
