Psych fact: you can only have full focus in one activity. That’s why when you are multitasking, neither of the activities is done perfectly well. This rule also applies to having background noises/music/movies when studying: you divide your attention between studying and the background stuff and neither of them is done completely. Also, apparently multitasking is not good for your brain! It affects your memory and attention (see source 1), and levels of stress (source 2)

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

The harrowing realisation here is that however this ends, it’s going to be historic.

Either the protestors win out against the frankly insane reaction by the police and state.

Or more worryingly, the police win and set the time for all future protests, and freedom of speech, and justice, dies there and then.
