kanrose: iammakingperfectsense: insidemymmind: Okay, so in Science class yesterday we were talking about sleep cycles and melatonin and my science teacher said, “if you’re trying to sleep, avoid one colour. Blue. Your melatonin levels decrease when looking at the colour blue because it’s the colour of the sky.” GUYS, I KNOW WHY NONE OF US SLEEP.... - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...

(Reuters) - A U.S. federal appeals court has ruled that Connecticut police cannot claim immunity to quash lawsuits seeking millions of dollars in damages from a botched 2008 raid by a SWAT team that severely injured a homeowner and killed his friend.
 
The decision by the U.S. 2nd Court of Appeals in New York clears the way for a judge to decide whether five suburban Connecticut police departments violated the constitutional rights of homeowner Ronald Terebesi by using excessive force.
 
On May 18, 2008, a heavily armed SWAT - or special weapons and tactics - team unit knocked down Terebesi’s door, threw stun flash grenades into his Easton home and fatally shot 33-year-old Gonzalo Guizan of Norfolk as the two men watched television.
 
Guizan, who was visiting the home, died after being shot a half dozen times.

This isn't 'feminism'. It's Islamophobia - Guardian http://www.theguardian.com/comment...
"Horror stories about Muslim misogyny have long been used by western patriarchs to justify imperialism abroad and sexism at home. The Guardian's Katharine Viner reminds us about Lord Cromer, the British consul general in Egypt from 1883. Cromer believed the Egyptians were morally and culturally inferior in their treatment of women and that they should be 'persuaded or forced' to become 'civilised' by disposing of the veil." - Victor Ganata from iPhone
"'And what did this forward-thinking, feminist-sounding veil-burner do when he got home to Britain?' asks Viner. 'He founded and presided over the Men's League for Opposing Women's Suffrage, which tried, by any means possible, to stop women getting the vote. Colonial patriarchs like Cromer … wanted merely to replace eastern misogyny with western misogyny.' More than a century later, the same logic is used to imply that misogyny only matters when it isn't being done by white men." - Victor Ganata from iPhone
A very good piece, methinks. - Eivind

So my last session was today (8/26). I ended up going 2X/wk for 3 mos. Medicare never even blinked. I improved a LOT. Most stuff I can continue at home. As a bonus, Nine sent me an early birthday present- a half-round roller that I can use here. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can.

"In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called 'The Aetiology of Hysteria.'"
"However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the 'Oedipus complex,' which became the foundation of modern psychology… " - Victor Ganata from iPhone
"Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.” - Victor Ganata from iPhone

Tangentially: It grosses me out that Hollywood still portrays psychiatry as strictly Freudian when real psychiatrists have long realized Freud is mostly bullshit. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

The outside agitator charge is one that has historically been invoked by authorities with bad arguments.

Source (x):
  
In Vancouver, where just six people were murdered in 2013, police are crediting specialized crime prevention programs for the record-low murder rate.
  
I will add that while there were only 6 homicides in the city centre of Vancouver, there were more in the suburbs of the city (25 homicides in Surrey).

Education is not about finding the most efficient way to cram info into students, but rather about making it easier for them to learn.
Teach 'em how to pass tests and that's all they'll ever know. Teach 'em how to learn and that's all they'll ever need :-) - Slippy: Formless

#SaturdayFF I got my camera in 2007. They say it needs a professional cleaning every year to every 18 months. So finally took it last weekend to get it cleaned (having never had the extra $100 that that would cost) when I had started to hear grinding noises when changing lenses after our beach trip to Michigan. Picked it up yesterday to hear how...
it was not that bad at all, firmware up to date, not very dirty and overall in very good shape. They'd quoted me $99.99 and I paid $20. My inner child and I *danced* out of the shop. - Uli
