Alphabet Inc. reported a huge swing in profit and spending Monday, with earnings jumping more than 70% in the first quarter and capital expenditures nearly tripling from the year before.

Today 11:48 GMT

Over half of U.S. public school systems, and over 90% of districts serving primarily students of color, report having trouble recruiting and retaining STEM teachers, according to Melissa Moritz, former deputy director of STEM Initiatives at the U.S. Department of Education.

‘I Feel Pretty’ and the Rise of Beauty-Standard Denialism

Today 11:48 GMT

The only way I’ve found to banish momentarily that shadow of the idealized self is to pay for it to go away — with a Sephora shopping spree or a spin class.
