Facebook is committed to helping advance women in technology, and we are very excited to announce the 2014 Facebook Grace Hopper Women in Computing Scholarship!
The Facebook Grace Hopper Scholarship gives 25 women excelling in Computer Science a chance to attend the conference and spend a few valuable days before the conference with Facebook engineers.
This is worth sharing!! Go compsci ladies!!
A few weeks ago some dude made a post on the Facebook wall of a Maxipad company that went viral, about how their commercials had lied to him about what periods were really like. It’s an old joke, but a good one. He’d just found out that periods didn’t mean hang gliding, swimming in waterfalls and horseback riding but rather, he went on, that his girlfriend turned into something from the Excorcist because haha, ladies and their mood swings, amirite? Man, thank god we don’t have a lady president! So, less of a good joke in the end there. Bodyform, the maxipad company, has come up with a video response that is almost the best thing ever.

Kathleen Hankel, a 68-year-old grandmother from New Jersey, set a new world record this week in gaming. Hankel, who played in Manhattan while a simultaneous effort was spearheaded by Laura Rich in London, set the record for “Longest Video Games Marathon Playing a Card Game.” So what game was she playing? Solitaire Blitz.
