We're Talking About: Hillary Clinton Condemning WikiLeaks, Trolling, and Relationship Dynamics


- According to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton , WikiLeaks' disclosure of sensitive State Department cables was an attack, not just on the United States but on the international community. [ Politico ]


- And the leaked cables make it impossible for Hillary to continue as Secretary of State. It could be next week or next month, but sooner or later, the weakened and humiliated Secretary will have to resign. [ Slate ]

- Trolling , defined as the act of posting inflammatory, derogatory, or provocative messages in public forums, is a problem as old as the Internet itself. But there are ways to control this aggravating online behavior. [ New York Times ]

- Does binge-drinking lead to an increase in aggressive behavior in teenage girls? [ Jezebel ]

- As more women match or overtake men in education and the labor market, they are also turning traditional gender roles on their head, which can affect traditional relationship dynamics. [ New York Times ]

- Will you have a better life if you graduate from an elite school ? According to many students and their parents: yes. [ New York Times ]
