"There’s no other spot in San Francisco that embodies the beatific fifty-year history of the Beat Generation better than City Lights Books, still at 261 Columbus Avenue, in the heart of “little old wooden North Beach,” as Ferlinghetti called it. It was founded in 1953, the first all-paperback bookstore in the U.S., stocking classics of modern literature and progressive politics. In 1956, City Lights published Allen Ginsberg's seminal poem "Howl" and became the lightning rod for a new generation of untamed poets. This rare combination of bookstore and publishing house battles on as one of the increasingly rare, un-chained independent book enterprises in America. Expert bookworms stock a comprehensive selection of the best books in every field. . . . City Lights has been the head, heart, and undersoul of literary San Francisco for half a century, and—as the Gotham Book Mart in Manhattan long ago proclaimed about itself — “Wise Men Fish Here.”" - Brent Schaus from Bookmarklet

Street harassment video: A hidden camera records what women go through on New York streets. -
Street harassment video: A hidden camera records what women go through on New York streets.
"To film the video, Rob Bliss outfitted a backpack with a hidden camera and walked across New York City streets for ten hours in front of actress Shoshana B. Roberts, who was dressed in jeans and a T-shirt and holding a microphone in each hand. Bliss’ camera caught men approaching, leering, and trailing Roberts’ movements; the mics recorded their comments, which ranged from ostensibly friendly greetings (“Have a nice evening!”) to unsolicited commentaries on Roberts’ body (“Sexy!”) to absurd commands (“Smile!”) to pure expressions of entitlement (“Somebody’s acknowledging you for being beautiful! You should say thank you more!”). The ceaseless chatter (plus some light stalking!) adds up to a constant reminder that, just for walking from point A to point B, some men believe that women’s bodies and minds should be made accessible to them on command. “How are you this morning?” doesn’t sound so sinister. But when a male stranger shouts it, it’s just another unearned claim for a woman’s... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Some men, though, still aren’t seeing it. On Twitter, some are pushing back against the video, claiming that it’s not harassment, it’s just annoying, and that refusing to reply is, frankly, impolite. Of course, it’s largely women who are singled out for constant annoyance just for stepping outside, and are dismissed as rude for not accepting it graciously. If you don't get it after watching this video, the problem isn't just the guys caught yelling at Roberts. The problem is you." - Jessie

Sometimes "tidying" means "put things in the right general room of the house, or at least one room closer to the right room."
moving it closer to where it belongs DEFINITELY counts. - Lnorigb
I did a lot of that today. Kitchen looks much better, as does living room. bedroom...has a lot of shoes sitting out. - ellbeecee
that's all I seem to be able to ever do. One day rooms will actually look like I imagine they will...that day will probably come right before I move out. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Someday I want to take a whole day off work just to tidy, straighten, do all the things where everytime I see one particular thing I think "oh yeah, I need to do that thing..." On second thought, I'd better plan for a week. - Catherine Pellegrino
I assume that if I move something from the floor to a different horizontal surface I have tidied. - laura x from iPhone

I have baskets. I put the things that are on floors, surfaces, sofas, etc, in the baskets, on the theory that eventually i will have to empty the baskets because they are full and thus things will get put away. But, um, I have a lot of baskets. - Jenica

spent time talking with a citole player today...discussing this medieval instrument and the history of it and various common constructions and tunings. it sounded really really good to me. i may be hooked.
generally the neck and body are carved from a single piece of wood with the soundboard being a separate piece of resonant light wood such as cedar or spruce. a proper citole is a 4-string instrument without courses (courses being paired strings in unisons or octaves, such as in a mandolin or 12-string guitar) and the tuning varies depending on the way the instrument was constructed by the artisan who made it as well as the preferences of the citole player. most modern players seem to prefer using special nylon strings made to simulate gut strings. - Big Joe Silence
some info as well as examples of modern reconstructions: - Big Joe Silence
'On tuning, we have two authors that give up potential hints. The anonymous author of the 14th Century Summa Musicae notes that fingerboard stringed instruments "are tuned in the consonances of octave, fourth and fifth, and that by putting down their fingers the players of these make tones and semitones for themselves." Thus we might see the instrument tuned in alternating 4th and 5ths,... more... - Big Joe Silence
I remember posting some links in the past. I vaguely remember that someone in this area used to make medieval instruments. - Greg GuitarBuster

Doctor in New York Tests Positive for Ebola
From Comments: "... If you do not want to contract ebola, then: 1) Do not have sex with Dr. Spencer until such time as he is no longer contagious. 2) Do not ask Dr. Spencer to spit into your mouth or eyes. 3) Do not drink Dr. Spencer's blood or rub your open wounds on Dr. Spencer. 4) Do not lick sweat off of Dr. Spencer or drink his urine. 5) Do not ingest any of Dr. Spencer's vomit or feces. If you refrain from any of these things, you should be able to avoid contracting ebola from Dr. Spencer. Ebola has been studied extensively for several decades and its transmission vectors are well-known. Ebola is transmittable through direct bodily fluids only and only when the viral load is high enough. At that level, the patient displays symptoms of infection. If the patient is asymptomatic, then the viral load is insufficient to be generally transmissible. Ebola is not airborne and cannot be contracted merely by breathing the same air as someone with Ebola, even if that person is symptomatic.... more... - WarLord

Here's Why Facebook Never Created a 'Dislike' Button | Adweek -
Here's Why Facebook Never Created a 'Dislike' Button | Adweek
"In an interview with the creator of the Like button, former Facebook CTO Bret Taylor (who these days runs mobile app Quip), TechRadar reports that a Dislike button was often discussed but consistently scrapped because "the negativity of that button has a lot of unfortunate consequences." While the Like button was born largely to unclutter feeds riddled with positive one-word comments like "wow" and "cool," Taylor says, Facebook felt that it was actually better to corner the more negative users into leaving a comment explaining their opinions. "I have the feeling that if there were to be a 'Dislike' button is that you would end up with these really negative social aspects to it," Taylor says. "If you want to dislike something, you should probably write a comment, because there's probably a word for what you want to say."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet

A family outing, then a deadly Border Patrol shooting - LA Times
"Border Patrol agents fired their weapons in 960 encounters over the last eight years, according to Border Patrol records. Including Arevalo, 30 people were killed, with at least 10 of those in incidents alleged to involve rock-throwing and eight on the Mexican side of the border. Unlike domestic police departments, the 20,833-member Border Patrol — the federal government's largest law enforcement agency — releases almost no public information about shootings, including the outcome of any investigations. No one in the Border Patrol has been formally disciplined or fired for any of the deaths or other shooting incidents, according to Mark Morgan, head of internal affairs at Customs and Border Protection, the Border Patrol's parent agency." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

It's tricky because while antibodies have some protective effect against viruses, the part of the immune system that usually takes care viruses is cell-mediated immunity, and that's not really transfusable. I think it's still unclear just how protective anti-Ebola antibodies are. - Victor Ganata
