The Digital Ties That Bind: Love, Loss and Oversharing in the Internet Age

Our social media trails are an incredibly intimate digital diary that we allow the entire world to click through. So it’s not surprising that for many of us dating has become performance art, and both our closest friends and our most casual acquaintances have a front row seat. This is particularly true for millennials like me who’ve grown up with the idea of having an audience of friends and supporters and expecting instant and constant feedback — whether it’s coming from our mother or a person we once knew at summer camp. It’s part of our DNA. But it’s hard not to wonder whether that craving for approval from all those far-flung friends is changing the way we bond and interact with the people we love. 

How David O. Russell Made Me A Journalist:

What had felt like just a high school activity soon became my mission in life: telling other people’s stories. My piece on Russell led me to interview other famous alumni of MHS — Entourage’s Kevin Dillon, celebrity photographer Matt Baron, and Capote writer/producer Bennett Miller and director Danny Futterman. (Miller went on to direct Moneyball.) An assignment given to me because of something I didn’t get was a defining moment of my early career.

Grief in the Age of Social Media:  

[S]ocial media has changed the "human" aspect of tragedies like the Aurora shooting. It's a whole new level of connection. We can get to know, remember, and celebrate the lives of people we don't know. 

L.A. County's Swine Flu Victims: Death Certificates Tell The Stories of a Ravaging Virus

Neon Tommy analyzed the death records and interviewed family members, public health officials and doctors to see what the dozens of deaths suggest about the patterns of the illness and who remains most at risk. In several cases, the families we spoke with said they did not know their relatives had died of swine flu until we told them. In these cases, county officials said the diagnoses had been made after doctors filled out the death certificates, and that it is not the county's responsibility to notify family members. Nearly half of the death records do not list swine flu as a cause of death. We undertook this project to tell the stories of victims of swine flu in Los Angeles County, from the first death in May to whenever the crisis ends. Our goal is to put a human face on the epidemic and help the public evaluate the performance of health officials in addressing it. 

Pamela Bakewell Takes On A Resistant Community:

In this chapter of her life, she wants to be known as the face of the Los Angeles Urban League's Neighborhoods@Work program--a five-year revitalization effort for Crenshaw High School and the neighborhood surrounding it. She is the executive closest to the ground in a far-reaching effort by the Urban League to transform a struggling, predominantly African-American neighborhood into a safer and more pleasant place. She sees gaining visibility and recognition throughout the community--on her own terms--as key to her success. 

For One Pulitzer Prize Winning Photographer, Some Days Are Never Forgotten

[D]uring what started as a one hour-long lunch break from his job as a lab assistant in a photo equipment room, Filo would see things he says have taken him years to get past. The photograph transformed him from a 20-year-old senior studying journalism at Kent State to the Pulitzer Prize winning photographer of a photo so iconic it appears in history textbooks across the world. 

100 Days of Jerry Brown's Relative Silence

When tens of thousands of students, parents, teachers and workers across the country took to the streets on March 4 to protest budget cuts in California's designated "Student Day of Action," it raised the question of how Jerry, given his father's legacy, planned to fix our crumbling education system. His father, Edmund "Pat" Brown, who served as California governor from 1959-1967, is credited with building the state's higher education system.
