Dubya's call for abstinence to stop #AIDS is now demonstrably idiotic.

"A rigorous comparison of national data from countries that received abstinence funding under the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) with those that got none of the funding showed no difference in the age of first sexual experience or in the number of sexual partners or teenage pregnancies—all aspects of behaviors that have been linked to a higher risk of becoming infected with HIV. Instead the study showed that one of the most important factors associated with lower levels of risky behavior was the number of years women remained in school."

Also, more evidence of the significance of #education for both individual and societal well-being.

I fear Wikileaks is helping Trump.

I am deeply concerned that the recent Wikileaks release of DNC emails will only help Trump, by keeping some democrats away from the voting booth in protest or convincing them to vote for a 3rd candidate who cannot possibly win.

...Can Sanders lose the DNC nomination, then become an independent candidate and continue to run?

Speechgate just got even more ridiculous.

First, Melania allegedly wrote the speech herself.
Now, it turns out it was written by someone who may be a Drumpf Organization employee.
Setting aside the clusterfuck of paid employees working for candidates on "company time," clearly there's at least one more liar here besides Melania: either the guy who said Melania wrote it herself, or the woman who said she wrote the speech.

What really stunned me was that the alleged writer claims that she's still working for the Drumpf campaign because her resignation was rejected by Drumpf.
Here's a news flash: if this McIver person actually wrote a speech without bothering to verify it - especially with respect to material she got from a third party - then she needs to quit because of her extreme negligence. It's irrelevant what Drumpf thinks about it; the... more »

If she were my student, she'd fail my course for this.
Considering the corresponding greater situation in which she finds herself, I figure a few years in prison would be a correspondingly greater consequence.

"According to The Washingtonian, citing the plagiarism checker TurnItIn.com, "the likelihood that a 16-word match is ‘just a coincidence’ is less than 1 in a trillion. Melania Trump’s longest match? 23 words.""

openDemocracy: not as open as you might think.

So there's this sack of hammers named Anna Hare, who managed to get a streaming bowl of tripe published on openDemocracy and how no one reached out to the Leavers and, poor babies, they're all just misunderstood but good folk at heart. This link to her piece (of crap) is https://www.opendemocracy.net/anna-hare/no-country-for-young-men.

So I called her out on it.
But I can't even post on openDemocracy because I've already been banned.
Any way to find out why? Not that I can tell.
I can't even remember ever commenting on that site before!

_What bollocks. The very first paragraph gives the impression of a landslide victory for Leave. The win was in fact pathetically marginal - less than 4% separated Leave from Remain. This lack of honest reporting permeates the whole piece. The Media are conflated with politicians, politicians are all painted with the same brush, and no effort at all to analyze the sadly ignorant Leavers or the apathetic young non-voters is made. In what universe is this irrational accommodationism to a bunch of self-serving, privileged, white men.____

I always thought there was something creepy about Euphegenia Doubtfire.
Glad to know I'm not the only one.

I'm on Team Takei: Sulu shouldn't be gay.
In addition to the excellent rationale provided by Takei himself, I argue that it's unjustifiable. It's one thing to reboot the series via Nero's arrival and all that. It's also fair to expect Nero's arrival could have far-reaching consequences - more than just Kirk being a bit of a dick. But Sulu is only 3ish years younger than Kirk, and you don't choose to be gay. So, it seems very likely that if Sulu has the same parents in the reboot - and there's no reason to think he doesn't, as far as I know - then there's no reasonable way he could have been straight before Nero and gay after Nero.
That's not to say there shouldn't be gay characters on Trek. The data of which I'm aware is all over the place, but it seems to centre around 5% of the human population being gay. So I'd say at least 5% of all... more »

So I'd say at least 5% of all Trek actors should be openly gay. There should also be some openly bi and trans characters too.
But only if they fit into the Universe that Roddenberry created.
Otherwise, it's just not #startrek.___

Net neutrality in #EU  needs your help.

"European Regulators are about to decide whether to give big telecoms corporations the power to influence what we can (and can’t) do online. Europe urgently needs clear net neutrality guidelines to protect our freedoms and rights online. We have until July to help Europe protect the open Internet."

So, the long and the short of it is, Bush and, to a lesser extent, Blair screwed the entire world over.
Awesome.
And also - Duh!

A new try at improving the whole science publishing thing.
In principle, it's a good idea. Let's see what happens.

So, this guy died in the attack at Atatürk airport.
Except he didn't. He died in the EgyptAir crash.
Except he didn't. He died at the mass shooting in Florida.
Except he didn't. The BBC claimed that his pic was part of a massive internet troll to trick the media.
Except the trolls didn't. It seemed he was a con artist, and his victims were using the technique to get his photo as widely distributed as possible.
Except he isn't. It seems he was the victim of a "prank" after a legal dispute in Mexico.

And that's just what's happened so far.

Sometimes the internet makes me weep for humanity.

So, there'll soon be a vacancy in the Alberta Judiciary, right?

A Calgary judge blamed a young woman for being (allegedly) raped. Whether she was or not is irrelevant. The judge's behaviour was disgusting in any case.

Apologies aren't enough here. The judge had the means, the opportunity, and the responsibility to have maintained a professional stance in his court. That he didn't do the right thing in these circumstances tells me he's unable to do it - which should disqualify him from sitting on the bench.
