"Among Inuit and Sami people, there is an explicit need for children to learn self-regulation. Adults keep a reticent and tactful distance. A child "is learning on his own" is a common Sami expression. Sami children are trained to control anger, sensitivity, aggression and shame. Inuit people stress that children must learn self-control – with careful emphasis. The child should not be controlled by another, with their will overruled, but needs to learn to steer herself or himself."

“They [terrorists] entered our classroom as we were sitting with our teacher,” said Irfanullah, who was shot in the chest and is currently recovering in hospital. “She seemed to understand what was going on before we did because she immediately stood up and prevented the terrorists from targeting us,” he added.
According to a tearful Irfanullah, Ahmed told the terrorists that she would not allow them to shoot her students. “She was so brave,” he said. “Her last words to the terrorists were: ‘You must kill me first because I will not see my students’ bodies lying in front of me,’” he added.
Irfanullah says the Taliban didn’t seem to care about anything she said and immediately threw something on her body. “The next thing we knew, she was on fire,” he said. “Even while burning, she shouted at us to run away and find refuge.”

  1. Heard is a social news network that vets sources while preserving anonymity. The platform allows for dynamic, free-flowing social conversations similar to those seen at a party where crowds gather around storytellers, and form and disperse naturally as conversations change. The app uses matching and reputation engines to help content find the right audiences, without users needing to search, follow, or friend others.
  1. Meetey is a location-based app that lets you share and enjoy moments happening around you. The network creates a quick and easy way of connecting and engaging with people in the area. Users are also able to share and consume local content in the anonymous mode. Meetey is launching at Web Summit and aims to be the “go-to” app when you want to see what’s happening in your area.

The sanity of the victim is at stake because the perpetrator uses misinformation and various nuances to create doubt in the perceptions of the victim. “I don’t think you are remembering correctly,” you might hear a victimizer say to their victim. Distorting the perception of the victim ultimately leads to the victim taking on responsibility for whatever offense that was committed against them by someone else.

Former Guantanamo inmate Moazzam Begg says Western countries have it completely wrong when it comes to dealing with ISIL.



post on fb by sandy
A mass hallucination, indeed.
"Earlier this week, the world was subjected to the words that nobody can un-read or un-hear regarding the CIA's torture of captives: "rectal rehydration with hummus and pine nuts." This phrase alone should make everybody who knows the alphabet stop, put their newspaper or reading device down, protest in the streets and demand that everyone involved with this "program" be put in orange jumpsuits. But this is 2014, and the national policy on butts is far from clear.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, in regards to government agents putting hummus in your rear-end, said this week that the Constitution does not specifically forbid torture. Now, I am but a French major and do not hold a juris doctorate, and I thought that the Eighth Amendment against cruel and unusual punishment meant you couldn't torture people with chick peas in their gastrointestinal tract. Hell, I'm old enough to remember when we invaded Iraq so we could stop Saddam Hussein from torturing people. But anyhow, Scalia thinks torture, including things in your butt, is not only constitutional but also this weird thing he calls "conservative." ....
....The Honorable Mr. Small Government Antonin Scalia led the way to establish the essential precedent that OF COURSE the government can get in your butt cheeks over a parking ticket because of a ticket you already paid, because there might be a terrorist somewhere on earth with a nuclear bomb in his keister, obviously! .....
......It's 2014. We are actual having to debate the role of the government and your butt with people who think that body cavity searches over parking tickets are totally cool but who think that tyranny is what happens when we expand Medicaid."



http://www.demos.org/blog/12/4/14/social-distance-and-inequality

posted on fb by carol

College does not lead to high economic status; high economic status leads to college. Educational attainment is a marker of high social class, not the cause of it:
The social distance caused by inequality is not solved by having some children from poorer families wind up well off as adults. At best, such a person jumps from one class to another. But that jumping still leaves intact the underlying class differences.

we like to imagine that the poor kid who goes on to be rich has a foot in both classes and acts as some sort of bridge of understanding. In reality, it appears that the very upwardly mobile poor kid becomes alienated at both ends of the class spectrum. They become alienated from their lower class background because their educational and lifestyle differences make it increasingly harder to relate to their past. And they remain alienated from their upper class destination because they never fully fit in. It's one thing to move from one economic class to another. It's quite another to truly move from one social group to another.

Social distance is not likely to be much affected by attempts at making bridges between classes via upwardly mobile poor kids. If you want to reduce the social distance between social groups, you need to reduce the material basis of that distance.

My third BBC Reith Lecture on the Future of Medicine, which just aired this AM, is now online here: bbc.in/1yLznRs


1/The Senate CIA Torture Report reveals savage, immoral, utterly despicable practices by our govt. 1.usa.gov/1yzHywf



2/But the worst for me is to see the details of how doctors, psychologists, and others sworn to aid human beings made the torture possible.

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/Atul_Gawande/status/542647216075452416

Sent via TweetDeck

3/The torture could not proceed w/o medical supervision. The medical profession was deeply embedded in this inhumanity.

4/It was doctors who devised the rectal infusions “as a means of behavior control.” (p100)

5/Doctors suggested the water temperature for waterboarding and use of saline instead of free water to avoid water intoxication. (p86, 419)

6/Doctors watched as stress positions inflicted pain, lacerations, and only stopped them when producing, e.g., shoulder dislocation (70)

7/Psychologists, who were supposed to stop damaging interrogation, actually served as interrogators. (72)

8/The Office of Medical Services provided consultation on when fractures and wounds were healed enough to resume torture. (p113)

9/The Office of Medical Services wrote guidelines approving up to 3 waterboard sessions in 24 hours per prisoner. (p87)

10/When torture caused Abu Zubaydah’s eyes to deteriorate, MDs only intervened to insure ability to see was saved to aid interrogation.(112)

11/Doctors found prisoners with broken feet and still approved putting them into standing positions for up to 52 hours (p112)

12/Doctors were long the medical conscience of the military. The worst occurred because gov't medical leaders abdicated that role. (p87)

"The Anthropology of Economy" by Stephen Gudeman
"On my view, the commons is the material thing or knowledge a people have in common, what they share, so that what happens to a commons is not a physical incident but a social event. Taking away the commons destroys community, and destroying a complex of relationships demolishes a commons. Likewise, denying others access to the commons denies community with them, which is exactly what the assertion of privateproperty rights does. The so-called ‘tragedy of the commons’ (Hardin 1968), which refers to destruction of a resource through unlimited use by individuals, is a tragedy not of a physical commons but of a human community, because of the failure of its members to treat one another as communicants and its transformation to a competitive situation. Often a community economy does not despoil the environment as rapidly as a market economy does, because in doing so it despoils itself."

BitTorrent proposes to fix those problems by moving away from the longstanding internet behavior of users connecting to a server to view a webpage or access content. Instead, Klinker and the BitTorrent team set out to answer the question of "what if more of the web worked the way BitTorrent worked?" In this vision, web publishers could publish, distribute, and update an entire website through the BitTorrent protocol, and others visiting the page would automatically help share the site's content, just as anyone downloading a file over BitTorrent would also start sharing the file with other peers.
[..]
what if they weren't files? what if we put an HTML file inside of a Torrent and the browser just renders it?'"
[..]
For example, sites hosted by Torrent don't have an easy website address to remember; instead, they're identified by a mishmash of numbers and letters. "At the end of the day, we need a way to translate like DNS does, to make something more human-readable,"

Guest lecture by Moran Cerf today was one of the most amazing talks I've ever heard. Squarely in between several disciplines and concerns, fascinating work that ties together projects I had heard about for years never knowing it was one man behind them. Too hard to summarize but here's how it was billed: "[Today at noon] Talk with Moran Cerf, Neuroscientist and Bank Robber about topics ranging from the Science of Engagement to Projecting Dreams, and more..." and that's a really good description. Amazing.
