Book On Gay Steelworkers Prompts Union Changes
 
GARY, Ind. (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of books are published every year in the United States.
 
Most get overlooked, remaindered, pulped, or consigned to the farthest outer reaches of Amazon.com, never to be read again.
 
A former Indiana University Northwest English professor overcame the odds faced by most authors, especially those of academic titles. Miller Beach resident Anne Balay wrote a pioneering book about gay steelworkers that has opened eyes and inspired international workplace protections for gay and transgender steelworkers.
 
Balay’s “Steel Closets: Voices of Gay, Lesbian and Transgender Steelworkers” won the National Women’s Studies Association’s prestigious Sara A. Whaley Prize this year.
 
The book also helped prompt the United Steelworkers union to approve a civil rights resolution that includes a constitutional change protecting transgender workers as well as a requirement that local chapters discuss how they will protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender steelworkers before negotiating new contracts, such as by securing them equal health care benefits for their partners.
 
The union is studying whether every chapter could have a civil rights representative specially trained to work with GLBT workers so they feel comfortable coming forward with any complaints of harassment, and won’t fear retaliation for doing so.

Brothers Convicted in 1983 North Carolina Murder Are Freed After DNA Tests
  
Thirty years after their convictions in the rape and murder of an 11-year-old girl in rural North Carolina, based on confessions that they quickly repudiated and said were coerced, two mentally disabled half-brothers were declared innocent and released Tuesday by a Robeson County court.
 
The case against the men, always weak, fell apart after DNA evidence implicated another man with a history of rape and murder.
 
The startling shift in fortunes for the men, Henry Lee McCollum, now 50, who has spent three decades on death row, and Leon Brown, 46, who was serving a life sentence, provided one of the most dramatic examples yet of the potential for false, coerced confessions and also of the power of DNA tests to exonerate the innocent.
  
This is just the latest in a long line of examples that prove that the death penalty needs to be banned.

If you’re a boy writer, it’s a simple rule: you’ve gotta get used to the fact that you suck at writing women and that the worst women writer can write a better man than the best male writer can write a good woman.

The Police Tool That Pervs Use to Steal Nude Pics From Apple’s iCloud | Threat Level | WIRED - http://www.wired.com/2014...
The Police Tool That Pervs Use to Steal Nude Pics From Apple’s iCloud | Threat Level | WIRED
"On the web forum Anon-IB, one of the most popular anonymous image boards for posting stolen nude selfies, hackers openly discuss using a piece of software called EPPB or Elcomsoft Phone Password Breaker to download their victims’ data from iCloud backups. That software is sold by Moscow-based forensics firm Elcomsoft and intended for government agency customers. In combination with iCloud credentials obtained with iBrute, the password-cracking software for iCloud released on Github over the weekend, EPPB lets anyone impersonate a victim’s iPhone and download its full backup rather than the more limited data accessible on iCloud.com. And as of Tuesday, it was still being used to steal revealing photos and post them on Anon-IB’s forum. “Use the script to hack her passwd…use eppb to download the backup,” wrote one anonymous user on Anon-IB explaining the process to a less-experienced hacker. “Post your wins here ;-)”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
Apple is usually pretty good on security. For a login API to not be protected against a brute force attack is hard to imagine. - Todd Hoff

Why Doctors Are Sick of Their Profession - WSJ
"All too often these days, I find myself fidgeting by the doorway to my exam room, trying to conclude an office visit with one of my patients. When I look at my career at midlife, I realize that in many ways I have become the kind of doctor I never thought I'd be: impatient, occasionally indifferent, at times dismissive or paternalistic. Many of my colleagues are similarly struggling with the loss of their professional ideals." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
"only 6% described their morale as positive." It's no wonder so many self-medicate. - Ken Morley
I wonder how much the internet has contributed to this... Is it harder to feel heroic when your better-informed patients cause you to second-guess yourself? - Ken Morley
The surgery I attend is classified as a training surgery, which essentially means that doctors who have finished their education and done their mandatory time at a hospital work there for a year before they go to their chosen practice. It is a joy to see them so eager before the system has crushed the care out of them. - Slippy
Crush the Care Out should be the name of an all burnt out doctors band. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Ken, if as a doctor you have a hero complex rather than a get the person well complex then perhaps you should be doing something else? - Todd Hoff
Well I don't mean to bring the room down but I consider this merely one of the symptoms of middle age. You get tired of doing the same thing you've always done? Shit, Get in line. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
It is also frustrating when the treatment plans for better health are continually ignored by the patient. - Janet from FFHound!
Isn't the interesting question then is how could treatment plans be structured to be better followed? Typically plans are in the form of orders, which isn't all that helpful. - Todd Hoff
Todd, if you are a diabetic and you are asked to follow a simple diet plan and walk 10 minutes post meal and you don't. If you have asthma and on oxygen and you are asked AND assisted to cease smoking and you do not. How much more structure is needed? I believe in personal accountability but similar to give me something for my headache and then I won't take the medicine. Then I complain about my headache. - Janet
A simple diet plan? It's not a diet change. It's a total change of your life. Everything you've done your whole life is not only wrong, it's killing you. Every meal out, every meal at home, every time you want a snack, every time you are thirsty, every birthday, every holiday, every social situation, everything has changed. How do you make the transition? There's nothing simple about it. - Todd Hoff
Enabler or caretaker. You are preaching to someone who lost loved ones because they would not or could not break their health disorder. Psychological counseling with dietician supplementing better choices? My point is the vicious circle of 'help me doctor' - 'I will not take responsibility for my actions' - 'help me doctor'. I am a burned out healthcare worker, sorry. - Janet from FFHound!
I'm not preaching, I'm saying what my experience has been. I definitely hear you about taking responsibility for your actions. But just giving an edict and tossing up your hands when it's not followed is also avoiding responsibility. How could that ever work? I don't see how psychological counseling with dietician will be effective. People need to learn how they can live their lives completely differently. I don't think that can be done with a visit to get a lecture. - Todd Hoff
People under going weight reduction surgery DO get psychological therapy pre-surgical. It is approaching the mental and physical. Stigma exists for people to openly admit and accept help. - Janet from FFHound!
How effective is it? - Todd Hoff
Very, it is a life changing step they take. We have a very busy bariatric surgeon at our hospital and psychotherapy as well as dietary as well as physical rehab are part of the program. I can count six of my co-workers having success with the full revision surgery. More complications and less success with the lap band. Patients can overeat with those. - Janet
Odd that we don't do that for other interventions? - Todd Hoff

So my friend's novel is officially out today, and you all should read it. She's right up there with Steven King (I mean, literally, since her name is Shelly King, she's just to the left of him). It's called "The Moment of Everything" and it's about a high-tech worker, a used bookstore, and a cat, I think. http://shellyking.com/
Only read it if you like books. And love. Or cats. - Glen Campbell
I like two of the three. - MoTO: Team Marina
What if I like reading between the lines? - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

It's amazing any iphone app works at all.. What a mess. It's pretty clear nobody had embedded system programming experience when they started all this.
Extension by inserting code into a template is just really bad design: - (BOOL) application:( UIApplication *) application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:( NSDictionary *) launchOptions { self.window = [[ UIWindow alloc] initWithFrame:[[ UIScreen mainScreen] bounds]]; // Override point for customization after application launch - Todd Hoff
Weak / Strong pointers is a crazy responsibility for programmers to handle. It's impossible when using tasks. - Todd Hoff
Chaining initializers is more bad design through excessive coupling: self = [super init]; - Todd Hoff
The lifecycles of when objects are created and when methods are created is implicit. I can't tell by looking when things happen. In other words, the dynamic behaviour of the code is not clear at all. - Todd Hoff
MVC. Love it hate it, put everything in the controller. - Todd Hoff
Generally I'm against making the programmer run a compiler in their head to understand what is actually getting called. So though property seems like a good idea it makes very hard to deduce when reading code what will be called when an assignment happens. - Todd Hoff
Cell reuse by a reuse identifier is kludgy and error prone. Why does it need to own the memory? - Todd Hoff
String based selectors are used all over the place. These are not typed so are large source of run time errors when they shouldn't be. - Todd Hoff
The compiler doesn't check for methods in the interface that aren't implemented? It's a runtime error? Wow. - Todd Hoff
Seems odd to create a view controller and then give controller of the memory to the navigation controller. Seem like unnecessary memory allocs/deallocs. - Todd Hoff
In example code I see the use of static variables inside functions. That's bad style. It's more invisible magic code. - Todd Hoff
You can't test anything like the full functionality in the simulator. Beacon stuff? No. Camera? No. The interfaces should be accessible so someone could at least try to write an advanced simulator. - Todd Hoff
Nice debugging and monitoring tools. Very nice. - Todd Hoff
