KQED SCIENCE263,481Join +KQED SCIENCE for a Hangout On Air round table discussion about genetically engineered food in advance of QUEST Northern California’s television premiere of its new half-hour documentary, Next Meal: Engineering Food on Wednesday, May 8, at 7:30pm on +KQED 9. Our discussion will begin at 11AM PST (19:00 GMT).Special guests include, Next Meal producer +Gabriela Quirós, biologist UC Berkeley's +Peggy Lemaux  and UC Davis biologist +Ed Blumwald. Dr. Lemaux is genetically engineering sorghum to make it more easily digestible. Sorghum, a cereal related to corn, is a staple food for 300 million people in Africa. Dr. Blumwald is genetically engineering rice to be drought-tolerant.Next Meal explores how genetically engineered crops are made, their pros and cons, and what the future holds for research and regulations such as labeling in the wake of Proposition 37. Proposition 37 would have required foods containing genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled in California. The measure narrowly lost at the ballot box last November where it received 49 percent of the vote. Are the benefits of genetically engineered food worth the risks?  Join the discussion and find out! We'll be taking your questions from this event page and will try and answer as many as we can during our Hangout.What’s in Your Next Meal?

Vũ Phá0So, someone asked me if when would i share a themed circle. I share circles of mixes of different people because i think it brings diversity of the circle.Well people, should i share a themed circle? Well if i would, it would be a different circle though, and it would be less frequent than my other two circles.. (this circle and the snowball one)Well circle Yulia seems kind since she did not remove any people this time, instead she added some!So everyone, this circle obviously contains people. They seem to be pretty normal perhaps.  Hahaha! :-P.Well they engage with people and they have great content in their profiles. Some in here are photographers, philosophers, humorists and everything nice! These guys are not only suggested by me but also suggested by others. So yea, i believe it's a pretty great mix... :-DNote: If ever you want to suggest someone to be included in the future editions of this circle, just tag them in the comments!2014-02-06 16:37:31501537

Milky Way over Devils Tower
Image Credit & Copyright: David Lane
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap141031.html

A mysterious formation known as Devils Tower rises into the dark above northeastern Wyoming's prairie landscape in this 16 frame panoramic view. Seen against the night sky's thin, pale clouds and eerie green airglow, star clusters and nebulae of the Milky Way arc toward the galaxy's central realm at right of the frame. Of course the scene contains the Milky Way's own haunting and grisly visages of halloween, including ghosts, a flaming skull, a glowing eye and a witch's broom. To find them, slide your cursor over the picture or just follow this link, if you dare. And have a safe and Happy Halloween!

"“Terahertz circuits promise to open up new areas of research and unforeseen applications in the sub-millimeter-wave spectrum, in addition to bringing unprecedented performance to circuits operating at more conventional frequencies,” said Dev Palmer, DARPA program manager. “This breakthrough could lead to revolutionary technologies such as high-resolution security imaging systems, improved collision-avoidance radar, communications networks with many times the capacity of current systems and spectrometers that could detect potentially dangerous chemicals and explosives with much greater sensitivity"

Rosetta’s 67P Comet Compared to Everything, Including the Death Star

We’ve seen a bunch of pictures comparing Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko with all kinds of cities and objects on Earth, but it’s hard to put everything in perspective. Just how big is this thing? How big is it compared to other asteroids and comets we’ve imaged? What about more familiar objects, like the Burj Khalifa and Central Park?

How big is 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko compared to the Death Star?!?

The Congressional Research Service Finds that Boehner’s Lawsuit Has No Legal Basis...

Three months ago, John Boehner threw a bone to the tea-party faction that was nipping at his heels and demanding action against the lawless tyrant Obama and his executive orders that routinely defied both the Constitution and the duly enacted laws of the land. The bone took the form of a planned lawsuit against the administration because it had delayed certain aspects of the employer and employee mandates under Obamacare.

One of the big moments in House Speaker John Boehner’s campaign of posturing to convince his restive troops not to proceed with an impeachment resolution against the president was a much-trumpeted decision to file a lawsuit against Obama for “changing the health care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law.” The House (with not a single Democratconcurr... more »

The Congressional Research Service Finds that Boehner’s Lawsuit Has No Legal Basis...

Three months ago, John Boehner threw a bone to the tea-party faction that was nipping at his heels and demanding action against the lawless tyrant Obama and his executive orders that routinely defied both the Constitution and the duly enacted laws of the land. The bone took the form of a planned lawsuit against the administration because it had delayed certain aspects of the employer and employee mandates under Obamacare.

One of the big moments in House Speaker John Boehner’s campaign of posturing to convince his restive troops not to proceed with an impeachment resolution against the president was a much-trumpeted decision to file a lawsuit against Obama for “changing the health care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law.” The House (with not a single Democrat concurring) authorized the suit back in July. For all the wild rhetoric surrounding it, the authorization focused on one small aspect of the Affordable Care Act’s implementation, a one-year delay in the employer mandate requiring an offering ACA-compliant health plans under penalty of a tax.

When, back in July, Speaker John Boehner secured House authorization to file suit against President Obama for “changing the health care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law,” cynical Democrats derided the planned litigation as a “political stunt,” a talking point for the fall campaign playbook. But a report by the apolitical Congressional Research Service (CRS), completed on September 4, but never released by the member who sponsored it, nor mentioned in the press, indicates that the Democrats were not cynical enough.

Worth reading
I am a law professor who teaches human rights law and race and the law, and I participated in Ferguson October because I couldn't look at myself in the mirror if I didn't contribute what I could to this movement taking place 10 minutes from my home. As a legal observer, I was hoping to document (and maybe, by my presence, prevent) police brutality against protesters. Local Walmarts were selected as protest sites to amplify the connection between the killing of John Crawford, which took place at a Walmart in Ohio, and the killing of Mike Brown. Both are case studies in police impunity, the criminalization of black youth, and the logical consequence of the two: police too often feel that instead of simply patrolling black and brown communities, they can go hunting in them, without punishment.

It's come to my attention that I haven't yet made a public statement specifically about #GamerGate. But as it's come up in a few threads, at this point, I think it's about time that I made my position on this matter absolutely clear.

"GamerGate" is a lie from beginning to end. It has exactly three parts to it: it has its core, which is and has been from the very first day about allowing and preserving a "gamer culture" which is actively hostile to women (among others), and preserving it by means of threats, harassment, and violence towards anyone who ever suggests that it should be otherwise.

It has its bullshit layer, which is that it is about ethics in journalism. If it were about ethics in journalism, then you would see people talking about actual ethical questions in journalism, and you would have seen it from the beginning. But from its first... more »

It's come to my attention that I haven't yet made a public statement specifically about #GamerGate. But as it's come up in a few threads, at this point, I think it's about time that I made my position on this matter absolutely clear.

"GamerGate" is a lie from beginning to end. It has exactly three parts to it: it has its core, which is and has been from the very first day about allowing and preserving a "gamer culture" which is actively hostile to women (among others), and preserving it by means of threats, harassment, and violence towards anyone who ever suggests that it should be otherwise.

It has its bullshit layer, which is that it is about ethics in journalism. If it were about ethics in journalism, then you would see people talking about actual ethical questions in journalism, and you would have seen it from the beginning. But from its first days, its only ties to this notion were the use of bizarre (and provably false) accusations from Zoe Quinn's ex-boyfriend to accuse game journalists of being in a cabal to destroy the "gamer culture" of its core layer, and one listserv thread (as covered on http://goo.gl/3B0wcc) where professional journalists did, indeed, have a serious discussion about journalistic ethics: about whether the newsworthiness of this blog post outweighed the potential harm to its subjects. But rather than portray this as journalists doing what ethical journalists do, Milo Yiannopoulos instead portrayed this as a conspiracy by journalists to support the Secret Feminist Cabal. That is, his article itself was bollocks from beginning to end, as has been the entire argument.

And it has its fellow-travelers, people who either actually believe the bullshit layer or do so vocally and disingenuously in order to confuse others and add a shroud of legitimacy.

How do I know that this is true, and that there is not a legitimate discourse mixed in with the violence and so on? That I am not unfairly tarring all of GamerGate's proponents with the same brush?

It's really simple. I have not once seen a proponent of GamerGate actually distance themselves from the hatred and violence, or excoriate it, or say that it is fundamentally wrong and that they do not agree with either its means or its ends.

What I have seen is lots of people coming up with ways in which they, too, are being harassed, and so claiming a false equivalency. I got to watch an excellent example of this on one of my own threads earlier today; there, one of its proponents argued that the movement being called a bunch of scum (as it had been by someone else) is a form of harassment, and perfect evidence of how “there are trolls on both sides.” Yet he elides the difference between that and people being chased out of their homes, people waking up every day to death threats, to real and meaningful impact on people's lives. This is not a serious argument: it is an attempt to lie and to confuse the issue.

The other argument I have kept hearing is “I never distance myself from acts I have never associated myself with.” That is, people claim that they are under no obligation to distance themselves from the acts of the rest of GamerGate, even while they hoist its banner. Sorry: when a movement is known, first and foremost, for its violence, then to associate yourself with it does associate you with its acts. You cannot say “I support al-Qaeda. They’re really about the US military presence in Saudi Arabia,” or “Hey, the KKK has done a lot of great community service work,” and not thereby associate yourself with everything those organizations are really known for. Sorry; you lie down with pigs, you’ll get covered in mud. You keep doing that, and people will have every reason to assume that you like it.

The fact is that there is no meaningful way to "recapture" the GamerGate tag for anything honest, both because it was never tied to that in the first place, and because it has become far too polluted to do so. If someone actually feels like having a conversation about ethics in journalism, they should by all means do so -- depending on what they say, I may even support them in this. But they should not do so in the company of villains, because that simply obscures any real discussion they might want to have with filth.

This is not behavior worthy of human beings. It is vile, it is violent, and if there is anything legitimate at all inside GamerGate, it needs to get its ass out of there right now and clearly separate itself from the bloodthirsty mob. Because right now, anyone who walks around with that label is painting themselves as being open supporters of it, and anyone who supports that is someone that I wouldn't piss on if they were on fire.___

The Police Are Still Out of Control - by Serpico

This is one of the most credible and cogent assessments of the current state of police forces I've ever read. Disclaimer - I met Frank Serpico when I was young. I agreed with him then, and I still agree with him.

Costco will stay closed on Thanksgiving Day

Unlike the greedy companies, Costco, Dillard's, Burlington, REI and American Girl will remain closed on Thanksgiving. 

"Costco is among the companies that will choose to remain closed on Thanksgiving Day, a spokesperson confirmed to ThinkProgress. None of the nearly 127,000 people who work for the company will have to come in on the holiday.

That makes at least five chain stores that have decided to resist the new trend of beginning Black Friday sales a day early, thus ensuring that a large number of employees will have to come to work. Dillard’s, Burlington, REI, and American Girl all told ThinkProgress they will remain closed on the holiday, and Dillard’s explained that its decision was part of its “longstanding tradition of honoring of our customers’ and associates’ time with family.”

Another Week, Another Woman Harassed Into Leaving

Over the weekend I found out yet another awesome geek lady of G+ has abandoned the site due to overwhelming sexual harassment. 

Rory Triscuit (https://profiles.google.com/100979357612465960518/about) is gone and told mutual friends that she left because of being sick of the sexual harassment she faces here every day.  I don't know what specific event was her last straw, but she's deleted her posts and all that remains is her about page with its bolded appeal to not hit on her.  But creepers don't read about pages or heed warnings, do they?

Last week I posted about a woman who was getting rape threats from a troll she'd snarked back on, and how G+ staff actually told her she shouldn't have engaged the troll to begin with and just block him, completely ignoring the fact that the dude had been blocked already and was now harassing from a secondary account.

Because blocking does not work.  Not only is there nothing stopping the jerk from making more and more accounts, but it also does nothing to help the next victim, and the next, and the next.  And short of screencapping and then sharing amongst your friends, along with the profile link of the perpetrator, there's no real easy way to spread the word to everyone you care about that this person is a problem.

So, G+, what are you going to do about this?  Because the typical excuses are getting really, really old.  It's getting very hard not to see the top sphere as a mostly-boys' club that doesn't care.  I happen to know personally that at least one of those top dudes does care very much, but it's going to take a lot more than that one dude wishing he could do more.

Let's talk about suggestions:

1) Better Blocking

If G+ is going to stick to the "just block them" paradigm, at least make blocking useful.  Here are a handful of ways blocking could be better for clamping down on repeat offenders:

- Make blocking faster and more intuitive.  Right now, if I see harassment in my friend's post, it appears to be a catch-all report of "Spam or Abuse".  Only if you hover over it after the report does it give you a choice for more details, including the ability to block.  People miss that all the time.  The previous method of having a dialogue pop up was better.

- Make blocking easier.  Right now, you can unblock from a hovercard but not block from one.  Sometimes you see a bunch of people posting crap you know will be ignored if reported (ie vague neo-Nazi nonsense that isn't specifically abusive but indicative of people you don't want in your posts) and you want to go down the list and block the lot of 'em without reporting each comment.  You then have to go to each person's profile, let it load fully (which takes a ridiculous amount of time), treat yourself to the often nasty visuals they have in their profile display and posts, and then block.  Oh, and then you have to wait some more, because if you close the tab before the button has gone from red to grey, they aren't blocked.  This is nonsense.  We should be able to block from the hovercard in the first place, especially since we can unblock from it.

- Make blocking easier to share.  When I block someone - particularly a sexual harasser - I want to be able to automatically let my friends or possibly even the public know, in a way that demonstrates the problem and lets them quickly block as well.  Perhaps when I click to flag and then subsequently do the second part (which, as above, should not require a counter-intuitive re-hover) there could be an option to Share.  Then that option could copy the text of the flagged comment to a post in a way that I can't tamper with so folks know this was what was actually posted, also paste in a direct-block link (ie a more functional hovercard) of the offender, and I could share that like a normal post to whomever I wished, but with the added security of not notifying the blocked person.

Further, it would be really nice to somehow keep a non-circled list of blockees for sharing, or multiples, perhaps by type.  That way we could share lists amongst friends that they could auto-adopt like a shared circle.

This attitude that blocking is "mean" or "censorship" or "a witch hunt" has got to go, especially if G+ is also going to have staff tell people who are receiving actual rape threats in a potentially criminally chargeable way to "just block".  We should, as microcommunities within G+, be able to choose to shun en masse as desired.

Oh, and all of this should work as effectively on mobile as on desktop.


2) More Effective Reporting That Actually Does Something

As mentioned above, right now it's unintuitive that you have to hover over something once you've reported it to be able to report further.  And even if you do, you can't effectively report harassment against other people.  It just gives you a brush-off message and if that report goes anywhere from that point, it's not clear.

Many of us who hone in on truly egregious posters - like those posting child pornography - have noticed that enough reports does get G+'s attention and those pages get removed fast.  That's awesome.  But why isn't it the same for perpetual harassers?  How many reports of harassment does it take for a profile to be deleted?  And are IP addresses ever blocked or is it just easy for all of these creeps to just make a new account repeatedly?

There needs to be a more open, obvious, and clear policy about these things.  If you want us to trust you, G+, you need to trust us enough to tell us how it works and not hide behind proprietary screens.


3) Better Training for Staff, Both in Public and in Back

Many of us are still reeling in shock at seeing a staffer tell someone being threatened with rape that she shouldn't have engaged with the troll and should have just blocked.  That victim-blaming crap ought to be Red Flag Number One that you need more training in your offices on how to deal with sexual harassment issues.

But it's not just that once incidence: I've personally seen too many women try to report sustained harassment and be given brush-offs, be told something along the lines of, "Sorry, our policy doesn't let me do anything about this," or worse, cast the victim as the problem and threaten her with being removed.  I've seen multiple women who have been put through the ringer for trying to report fake profiles of them made by stalking exes who post intimate photos, or even just post as them in generally embarrassing, trouble-making ways.  Some of them just leave, others soldier on knowing there's nothing to be done.

Further, going to private-only posts should not ever be a suggestion.  That's akin to telling women if we don't want to be sexually harassed on a public street, we should lock ourselves inside.  Too much of the attitude around here puts the onus on victims to change the system, when the onus should be on G+ to deal with perpetrators.

Perhaps G+ should be hiring some kind of anti-sexual-harassment company to come in and educate the staff - from ground level up to executive - on how to more effectively deal with reports.  Because right now, it honestly looks like at best you don't care, and at worst, you're blaming victims.


4) Profile Photos Should Be Lockable

Just today it was revealed by some friends who otherwise control their photos that profile photos are shareable.  That's crazy.  Profile photos should have the same security options as any other photo posted.  It's actually a disturbingly common method of sexual harassment that's been around since the early days of G+: the creepers seem to pass around a hot profile photo and then flock to the woman to drive her crazy.


5) Generally Improved User Controls

There are several ways many of us have been begging for for ages to better control accounts to reduce the incidences of trolling/harassment, and we feel like nobody's listening.

- Turn of +1 notifications.  Right now harassers can "plusfuck" you and there's not even a way to report that as harassment.

- Comment Karma.  We really need some kind of system that lets those who wish it set a higher threshold before uncircled users can comment on their posts.  It's not good enough to just lock comments to circles because that prevents decent new folks from entering discussions.  Many, many versions of this have been suggested for the last couple of years.  G+ needs to implement something.

- Ghost blocking, temporary bans, etc.  Many people are asking for the ability to shut someone up in a troublesome thread without having to enact a total block ban.  There should be degrees of control here.

- Hangout invites need to be locked down.  Right now you can only set it that people can notify you first or not.  Many people don't want most people they interact with online to be able to beg for hangouts constantly.  We should be able to control that better than just shutting the entire toolbar off.  It's an easy vehicle for harassment right now and needs to stop.

- Ability to stop community invites from people not in circles.  We women get invited to an ungodly number of porny communities on a regular basis.  Ew.  Let us stop this in advance, please!  Plus everyone else wants this setting too for the other bazillion community invites spammer send daily.

- Ability to set posts to Comments Disabled before clicking the share button.  Sometimes people have good reasons for not allowing comments, and it's silly that they have to make the post and then go to the pull-down to disable comments.  In the time it takes to do that, a comment or two often comes through.

- Ability to mark posts as not eligible for What's Hot, and/or an indicator on the post when it's gone to WH.  WH is a magnet for abuse, especially on women's issues.  I've received more rape threats and associated abuse from my feminist posts hitting WH than all other harassment put together.  High profile women who frequently have posts hit WH pretty much know that every time they post, they're going to get a ton of crap thrown at them.  And this problem isn't limited to sexual harassment of women: any post hitting WH gets filled with stupidity.  Let us choose as we post to not allow this to happen, and give us the Comment Karma settings to minimize it if it does!



These are just the suggestions I could remember in between doing dishes tonight and before I need to go bathe the baby.  I'm a busy mom who shouldn't have to be telling one of the world's biggest corporations with a motto of "Don't be evil" how to curtail sexual harassment on their social media platform.  I shouldn't have to watch friend after friend bail or go to private-only because the problem is so disgustingly huge.  I shouldn't have to see thread after thread descend into chaos because some women can't post anything without being hit on.

Google exists as an aggregator of data.  There's no excuse for why you can predict my search terms with disturbing accuracy but can't figure out that someone posting constant sexual harassment needs to go.

Do something.  For pity's sake, do anything.  Stop ignoring us.___via +Eve A  I like the screen shots and sharing with friends.. people get irritated about it but.. meh.. no one wants to be harassed ..
