Maryland parents investigated for neglect after letting kids walk home alone from park - http://news.nationalpost.com/2015...
familyphoto.jpg
"It was a one-mile walk home from a Silver Spring park on Georgia Avenue on a Saturday afternoon. But what the parents saw as a moment of independence for their 10-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter, they say authorities viewed much differently." - Stephan
“Parenthood is an exercise in risk management,” she said. “Every day, we decide: Are we going to let our kids play football? Are we going to let them do a sleep­over? Are we going to let them climb a tree? We’re not saying parents should abandon all caution. We’re saying parents should pay attention to risks that are dangerous and likely to happen.” - Stephan
Seriously...WTF? I suspect most of our generation were "free range" kids. (Although, we never needed a description of it.) You left in the morning and came home when you were hungry or the streetlights came on. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
My elementary school was a mile walk each way. The authorities didn't seem to have a problem with kids walking that far alone. Only the kindergarteners got a bus ride. Why are we raising entire generations of kids that are going to be totally unprepared for the harsh realities of life? Kids are so much tougher and self-reliant than they're given credit for- if we let them. - Jenny H. from Android
The threats uttered (also checked that link) just don't seem to make sense. At that age my dad had the car so if you wanted to go somewhere we walked. - Stephan from iPhone
>.> If you were a mile or less away you were expected to walk to school when I was wee. - Alix May from iPhone
Sounds like their CPS office doesn't have enough to do! - Jim #teamFFrank
Have western societies become overly protective in general? - Stephan
i wouldn't call this protective. - Big Joe Silence
Well, if we consider walking a mile to home dangerous... - Stephan
I think people see the world as more dangerous and threatening than it is. Which means everyone is expected to act according to worst case scenarios at all times. - Heather
It's one thing that a citizen calls police. It's another matter for them to take it to the next level. - Stephan from iPhone

New research reveals that a species of bird 'paints' its own eggs with bacteria which protect the embryo
Researchers from the University of Granada and the Higher Council of Scientific Research (CSIC) have found that hoophoes cover their eggs with a secretion produced by themselves, loaded with mutualistic bacteria, which is then retained by a specializad structure in the eggshell and which increases successful hatching. So far this sort of behaviour has only been detected in this species of birds, and it is a mechanism to protect their eggs from infections by pathogens. - Halil from Bookmarklet
That's so cool! - Jenny H.

Why I am no longer a skeptic - Stephen Bond (via The WayBack Machine) https://web.archive.org/web...
"Skepticism is Neoliberalism" - Victor Ganata
"Extreme skeptics like Dawkins come close to claiming that the scientific method is the only true source of knowledge, and that what is presently non-scientific knowledge — like morals and culture — will eventually become more rigorously and correctly established through the scientific method." - Victor Ganata
"Skeptics, in insisting on the primacy of scientific knowledge, deny the value of non-scientific metaphors in future scientific advance. As far as they are concerned, western liberal democracies have made all the political, social, cultural and economic advances they need to. Western thought is already so free that anyone who tries can perceive reality direct and unmediated, with no obscuring metaphors in the way." - Victor Ganata
"To the trained western eye, the truth simply reveals itself, in as much detail as our scientific understanding allows. It's difficult to imagine a more absolute statement of confidence in liberal democracy." - Victor Ganata
"Similarly, when skeptics insist that scientific thinking should be spread worldwide, they necessarily mean that liberal democracy should be spread worldwide. Which is to say, they are neoliberals." - Victor Ganata
"This is not the place to describe the many problems and hypocrisies of neoliberalism. Suffice it to say that I do not believe that liberal democracy, which condemns the majority of the world's population to varying degrees of slavery, is a perfect system. I do not believe that the metaphors of liberal democracy allow us a perfect view of reality." - Victor Ganata
"And therefore I do not believe in the primacy of the scientific method as a source of knowledge. It might be the best we've got, but when it comes to human advancement — including the advance of science itself — other sources of knowledge can be just as useful, and often more important." - Victor Ganata
"What's more, skeptics never acknowledge that racial science was defeated by political ideology, and not by science itself. In fact, there was nothing that could have defeated it within the empirical framework of racial scientists. Their racist experiments confirmed their racist hypotheses based on their racist observations. But while the science supported them, politics, in the aftermath of World War 2 and the Holocaust, did not." - Victor Ganata
"After 1945, racial science became politically unacceptable in western liberal democracies, and remains so in spite of the various attempts to revive it. It was not disproved by the scientific method; instead, the political ideologies behind racial science were discarded, and replaced by new ones that did not accommodate it." - Victor Ganata
I don't believe him. :P - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

I only today discovered/realized (thanks to Stephan Planken) that a lot of the people here on FF are also on Twitter. I am on Twitter but I treat it completely separately from my FF posts. Most things I post on FF and not on Twitter. Those Twitter people are missing out ;)
Most of my posts are in parallel between Twitter and FF but the 140 sped limit means FF gets my longer posts #maybenotbetterjustlonger - WarLord
I'm on Twitter, except not really. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I usually cross-post automatically to Twitter, FriendFeed, and Facebook because I have no idea what will wind up being interesting to each group, and I want to talk to everyone regardless of their choice of social network. Sometimes things in different directions on different networks off of the same post. If it's something specific to someone who only resides on a specific network, I'll post it only there, though. - Mark Trapp

A couple of years ago, I wrote a #saturdayff about my previous experience in the '90s as a self-defense instructor for Bay Area Model Mugging (now called Impact Self Defense). - http://friendfeed.com/zeigen...
A couple of years ago, I wrote a #saturdayff about my previous experience in the '90s as a self-defense instructor for Bay Area Model Mugging (now called Impact Self Defense).
When my friend Kyrie invited me to her graduation from a five-day BAMM class, I didn't know what to expect. That first class I observed was taught by a woman named Cori and a man named Stu. When I later became an instructor, those same two led the instructor training. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
That instructor training was two weeks, and was very intense. It combined physical training with emotional training, including crisis counseling. Cori led off each session with a check-in, and was very inventive in how she approached teaching the difficult work. - Stephen Mack
Not long after I became an instructor, the original founder of BAMM, Sheryl, retired, and Cori took over as Director. - Stephen Mack
Cori was a wise and canny leader, and instituted new programs to get the word out, including starting classes held at schools and businesses. She also formally transformed BAMM into a non-profit business. - Stephen Mack
In addition to being an outspoken advocate for gay rights, Cori had a wonderful sense of humor, a huge heart, and she was a skilled potter. - Stephen Mack
She and her partner Faith had a beautiful home in Oakland where she had a pottery studio. She had also worked as a farmer in her early life, and I remember distinctly one day her teaching us how to tell a good cantaloupe from a bad one (knocking on it to hear an echo, looking for a good variation of color and separation between the surface veins and the skin). - Stephen Mack
I lost track of Cori when I retired from Model Mugging in 2001. But for a while prior, I would enjoy attending game nights with her and some of the other instructors. She was a brave, wonderful woman. When Cori retired from BAMM, she returned to her farming roots -- small-scale and part-time. Here's a picture of her at the Oakland farmer's market: https://www.flickr.com/photos... - Stephen Mack
I learned this week that Cori died Tuesday of brain cancer. RIP, Cori. You taught me a lot, and I will miss you. Thank you for your wisdom and guidance. - Stephen Mack
I'm sorry, Stephen. - Katy S

"He was a narcissist, but a strangely impersonal narcissist, like a general whose army happens to be deployed inside himself." :D - Victor Ganata
"He can’t win, a fact that has no apparent bearing on the fury with which he is trying. We’re seeing Kobe stripped of everything except the will to succeed, a will that persists despite being hopeless. We’re seeing him face his doom with a fearlessness that is ludicrous, profane, and maybe slightly inspiring. We’re seeing the existential Kobe Bryant." — I have to admit, I am a great fan of the meme of the Long Defeat - Victor Ganata
"Ludicrous, profane, and maybe slightly inspiring" would make a great tag line for a profile bio :D - Victor Ganata
"Nick Young would tear Kobe’s throat out just to appear in this sentence." - Victor Ganata
"He is showing us what happens when an alpha dog dies ungracefully, the way alpha dogs are supposed to die. It is hilarious and painful to watch, and probably to live, too, although who knows?" - Victor Ganata
Maybe it's because I like comedy more, but the 2013-14 Knicks and the 2014-15 Knicks are more compelling to me than Kobe's long defeat. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Yeah, Kobe's fall isn't so much laugh-out-loud funny as it is about absurdity and painfully awkward social situations. (Tangent: which is kind of the stereotype of British comedy, no?) - Victor Ganata
