Young, Black and Frisked by the N.Y.P.D.
"These experiences changed the way I felt about the police. After the third incident I worried when police cars drove by; I was afraid I would be stopped and searched or that something worse would happen. I dress better if I go downtown. I don’t hang out with friends outside my neighborhood in Harlem as much as I used to. Essentially, I incorporated into my daily life the sense that I might find myself up against a wall or on the ground with an officer’s gun at my head. For a black man in his 20s like me, it’s just a fact of life in New York. Here are a few other facts: last year, the N.Y.P.D. recorded more than 600,000 stops; 84 percent of those stopped were blacks or Latinos. Police are far more likely to use force when stopping blacks or Latinos than whites. In half the stops police cite the vague “furtive movements” as the reason for the stop. Maybe black and brown people just look more furtive, whatever that means. These stops are part of a larger, more widespread problem — a... more... - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet

It's institutionalized racism. It's when you cross the street with your kids because you see a black or brown guy walking towards you, regardless of how he's dressed or what he's doing. When you lock your car doors because the color of the neighborhood changes, regardless of the economic stature of the area. You see 3 or more black or brown guys hanging out and call them "thugs" or... more... - Anika

Considering that only about 5% of stops (regardless of color) result in arrests, it's hard to imagine how they even justify this practice. - Gabe

Why people put so much emphasis on complexion, which is just a wrapper of a beautiful soul. If you abuse someone because of his color, you are abusing god, because god resides in every human heart.. - Ajay Agrawal

Dallas Photographer Mike Mezeul Captured the Best "Blood Moon" Photo of All | Dallas Observer
"If you didn't stay up late on Monday night to witness the "Blood Moon," fear not. The cosmos have conveniently scheduled three reruns over the next two years. Can't wait six months? Observer freelancer Mike Mezeul II has you covered. He's the guy who shot the time-lapse photo you've probably already seen on your social media feed. (When my mother-in-law posts it on her Facebook feed, describing it as merely "viral" is woefully inadequate.) The Baltimore Sun's photography blog caught up with Mezeul for an explanation of how he did it. Short answer: He stood out in the cold for a really long time." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

N'awwww <3 Both kids have said some beautiful things to Josh and I, and to each other, this week. Makes us feel like we're doing something right :o) - Melly
When they were playing their little golf/hockey game in the hall this morning, Josiah was encouraging Emily and telling her she was doing a great job of trying. And later Emily thought Josiah was sad (he wasn't) and started patting him on the back asking "You 'kay, Siah?" And then they hugged and kissed and my heart exploded. - Melly

So basically the prudent thing to do is change *all* my passwords? Ugh, Heartbleed. What a pain in the ass.
Where do you even start with that? Ugh. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Don't do it until each individual service gives the green light. - Tinfoil 2.0
I just changed most of my passwords in Jan. & can barely remember them. I started changing some of them yesterday, when alerted to, but it's difficult to come up with new passwords. - Anika
Tinfoil - I was wondering about that. Do I change now or wait until all of my services give the "all clear"? What's the point of changing if Heartbleed is still infesting my service? This is getting a bit old. - MoTO Moca Blend
MoTO... right, don't bother to change any given password until the site or service has patched OpenSSL, revoked compromised keys and reissued and redistributed new keys. Each site should make it obvious that's it's safe to go back in the water, and then it's worthwhile to change that password. If you change a password before the site is fixed up, the new password is vulnerable. Best to... more... - Tinfoil 2.0
