Sorry, conservatives: Dearborn isn't a no-go zone for anyone
2015-01-30 22:00:16 (56 minutes ago) 
This week, the Hindu-turned-Catholic Bobby Jindal doubled down on his bogus "no-go zones" claim at the center of his anti-Muslim crusade for the White House. He quickly had company in the form of Iraq war cheerleader and anti-Islamic xenophobe Frank Gaffney, who declared that Dearborn, Michigan, is already one of those no-go zones in America.

Of course, these right-wing myths aren't just an insult to the Muslim residents of Dearborn. The slander is an affront to all. Just ask Pastor Dustin Weber of the Dearborn Free Methodist Church. After all, he was just one of the many Christian ministers to deliver a prayer to open a meeting of the Dearborn city council.

Following in the footsteps of disgraced Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle, Gaffney took to the airwaves to make the charge:

Not only did anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney use his interview on "Washington Watch" last week to compare President Obama to Osama bin Laden, but he also claimed that Sharia law has popped up in the U.S.

According to Gaffney, Dearborn, Michigan -- a regular target of debunked claims about Sharia law that Gaffney calls "Dearbornistan" -- has become a "ghetto enclave in which it's Muslim-only and others, if they are not effectively proscribed or prevented from going in, know that it is too dangerous to go."

For over a hundred years, Dearborn has had a large and thriving Arab-American community. While the greater Detroit area per capita has the largest Muslim population in the nation, Dearborn is also home to Lebanese and Iraqi Christians as well. But in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks, the diverse city of 97,000 has become the place "where Americans come to hate Muslims." As Daniel Denvir explained in 2012, whether it is Koran-burning pastor Terry Jones, the California-based Bible Believers or RenewAmerica:
Dearborn is a must-visit location on 21st-century America's newly established anti-Muslim protest circuit. Continue reading about Dearborn below.

Canada mine disaster blamed on design: Don’t trust B.C., say Alaskans

Coordination between marriage equality lawyers more harmonious than previously reported
2015-01-30 21:20:14 (2 hours ago) 
On Wednesday I posted a piece which was based on an article written by Steve Friess for Bloomberg News. The gist was that one of the legal teams that will be arguing a marriage case at the Supreme Court was having trouble amassing the funds to properly prepare for the trial. Additionally, the piece asserted that many of the large LGBT groups were not being particularly helpful in assisting that Michigan-based legal team.

Well, here’s some encouraging news: If you were worried about discord among the several legal teams that are strategizing on the marriage equality cases, you can put some of those fears to rest. I was contacted by Dana Nessel’s co-counsel on the Michigan case, Carole Stanyar, who assured me that two LGBT groups—Lambda Legal and Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD)—are indeed supporting the Michigan-based team, which is one of five pro-equality legal teams headed to the Supreme Court in April. Stanyar said the two groups have provided resources for research, helped to locate trial witnesses, and in some cases donated funds for expert witnesses. Mary Bonauto, director of GLAD’s civil rights project, is also serving as co-counsel on the case.

Stanyar called the original article by Friess “mostly accurate” but said that it also significantly understated the contributions of both GLAD and Lambda Legal. I take this to mean that the Michigan legal team is still underfunded to some extent, but that they also have a far more cohesive working relationship with some of the LGBT legal advocates than the original article suggested.

“Mary Bonauto (of GLAD) helped us the moment we asked her and has never stopped helping us,” Stanyar wrote in an email. “Throughout the case, Lambda has provided a great deal of assistance to us also.”

In addition to corresponding with Stanyar, I also spoke to Camilla Taylor, director of Lambda Legal’s Marriage Project. Taylor said that, to her knowledge, Lambda has had “a wonderful working relationship” with the lawyers working on the Michigan case. “They have done a stunning job in litigating the trial,” Taylor said, “and we tried at every turn to give them the resources and help they needed.”

Please continue below the fold for more of Taylor's comments.

Tech Companies Worried Over China's New Rules For Selling To Banks
2015-01-30 21:10:55 (2 hours ago) 
An anonymous reader writes: China is putting into place a new set of regulations for how banks interact with technology, and it has many companies worried. While the rules might enhance security for the Chinese government, they devastate it for everyone else. For example, not only will China require that companies turn over source code for any software sold to banks, the companies building the software (and hardware) must also build back doors into their systems. The bad news for us is that most companies can't afford to simply refuse the rules and write China off. Tech industry spending is estimated to reach $465 billion in 2015, and it's projected for a huge amount of growth.

What Windows as a Service and a “free upgrade” mean at home and at work
2015-01-30 21:30:09 (1 hours ago) 

Windows licensing is more or less straightforward in the consumer sphere. Oh, sure, there are complications surrounding self-built systems, but compared to the world of enterprise licensing, the range of options is limited and the pricing simple. Corporate licensing, however, is a whole other matter.

We've been saying for some time that the process of updating and upgrading Windows is going to change in Windows 10, and perhaps unsurprisingly, this is going to have implications for Windows licensing.

The underlying theme is this: Microsoft does not want the Windows market to be split between a bunch of different versions. For a brief period, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 were all both extant and actively supported Windows versions. This is bad for more or less the entire Windows world. It's bad for developers of Windows software because they're forced to choose between the best functionality (found in Windows 8.1) or the widest compatibility (target Windows XP). It's bad for Microsoft, because it has to support all these versions. It's bad, in many ways, for end-users, too; using old versions means that they don't get the latest features, and in the case of Windows XP, they don't even receive security updates.

There Is No "You" In a Parallel Universe
2015-01-30 21:10:55 (2 hours ago) 
StartsWithABang (3485481) writes "Ever since quantum mechanics first came along, we've recognized how tenuous our perception of reality is, and how — in many ways — what we perceive is just a very small subset of what's going on at the quantum level in our Universe. Then, along came cosmic inflation, teaching us that our observable Universe is just a tiny, tiny fraction of the matter-and-radiation filled space out there, with possibilities including Universes with different fundamental laws and constants, differing quantum outcomes existing in disconnected regions of space, and even the fantastic one of parallel Universes and alternate versions of you and me. But is that last one really admissible? The best modern evidence teaches us that even with all the Universes that inflation creates, it's still a finite number, and an insufficiently large number to contain all the possibilities that a 13.8 billion year old Universe with 10^90 particles admits."
