Mess beyond border

The illegals at the border are just the latest of President Obama’s fiascoes (“Ruthless smugglers cash in on wave of illegal immigrants,” July 23).

Looking back, it seems that there were two camps in the 2008 and 2012 elections. One said that electing Obama would heal racial wounds in America, improve our economy by putting people back to work and alleviate the tensions that had built up between the U.S. and our friends and allies around the world under President Bush.

The influx of illegal immigrants is not a humanitarian crisis, but a criminal business that U.S. policies — including the 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act — encourage. Lynch has taken the time to investigate where these folks are coming from. Lo and behold: Many of them are not fleeing violence, but poverty.

His career included teaching at Gallaudet University and the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he was a founder of the school’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf.

It’s an idea that defies common sense. It is also an insult to affected communities whose responsibility it is to support values that foster public safety without the heavy hand — or watchful eye — of the police.

Open thread for night owls: How far we've sunk
  Source: Daily Kos 2014-07-23 23:18:52 (57 minutes ago) 
The Myth of the Diseased Immigrant:
Want to know how far we’ve sunk? Here’s how far: There was never any chance at all that we would handle the crisis of thousands of unaccompanied immigrant children running for their lives and arriving at our border with any maturity or grace at all. There was never a chance we’d take them in, get them fed and settled, and then consider sensibly how we can address the immigration-emigration mess on both sides of our border—and on our border—while working to send the kids safely home.

Instead we got the usual circus, the usual call to send in the troops, lock down the border, impeach the president—because, well, why not?—and under no circumstances to consider the comprehensive immigration reform bill languishing in the House. And now, at last, we have arrived at the inevitable sub-basement level of the debate. Now the nativists and xenophobes have played their nastiest—and least surprising—card: the border must be secured and the immigrants sent back because they are, of course, diseased.


Blast from the Past. At Daily Kos on this date in 2013—Today in E.W. Jackson news: E.W. Jackson speaks for everyone:

Today in E.W. Jackson news, we learn that E.W. Jackson speaks for fellow Republican ticketmate Ken Cuccinelli because E.W. Jackson says so.
“I represent the entire ticket by the way. And we are a unified ticket and we are going to win in November.” I suspect Jackson is using the royal we here, as so far there have been precious few indications that his running mate wants anything to do with him. And that's saying something, because Ken Cuccinelli is pretty much the living embodiment of the American Taliban (he's for jailing adulterers, which may be the most Talibanesque thing yet and which sounds like a really, really bad idea until you realize that Newt Gingrich would probably have found himself spending some time in the pokey under that rule and well now, that sort of makes it more tempting, doesn't it? We'll have to ask Mark Sanford his thoughts on that one as well—hell, we should be convening a conservative round table on one of the Sunday shows to discuss it. Let's see if even the Republican Party thinks electing Ken Cuccinelli to higher office is something they can stomach with a straight face).

The firm warned however that if users do, not all of the service's features will work. Head of Product at Dropbox for Business Ilya Fushman says: "We have data encrypted on our servers. We think of encryption beyond that as a users choice. If you look at our third-party developer ecosystem you'll find many client-side encryption apps....It's hard to do things like rich document rendering if they're client-side encrypted. Search is also difficult, we can't index the content of files. Finally, we need users to understand that if they use client-side encryption and lose the password, we can't then help them recover those files."

A Detroit resident and activist speaks of going forward
  Source: Daily Kos 2014-07-23 22:00:47 (2 hours ago) 

On Friday, Detroit citizens protested downtown near the COBO convention center. They then marched to the renowned Hart Plaza on the riverfront. Netroots Nation 2014 attendees comprised a very large number of the protesters in solidarity with the cause. A few weeks ago the Detroit water department began shutting off the water for those citizens that owed $150 or more. Most of these people are unemployed, poor, or disabled. It has even drawn criticism from the United Nations.

There was an explosive exchange recently between community activist Maureen Taylor and Detroit reporter Hank Winchester on MSNBC as the reporter used dog whistles in describing those that have been unable to pay their bills. Interestingly, many corporations owe thousands, tens of thousands, and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Their water is never at risk of being shutoff.

After the protest, a very insightful young woman, Atpeace Makita, spoke to me. Inasmuch as Detroit has been an exploited city for decades, her hope is for a resolution somewhere in the middle. She believes it is time for people to come together, not forgetting the past, but leaving the past behind.

Makita speaking in those terms expresses the viewpoints of many. Many people that I have talked to simply want the city to be given an opportunity to rebound from a long-term wound that is of no fault of their own. The extraction of labor and human capital from cities like Detroit is a systemic problem that affects our entire economy. This is unsustainable. Asking the aggrieved masses to bear the brunt of the corporate pilfering will ultimately lead to nationwide unrest, riots, and likely much violence.

Detroit retirees vote to accept pension cuts rather than risking catastrophe
  Source: Daily Kos 2014-07-23 21:42:02 (3 hours ago) 

A reminder of who and what we're talking about here. Detroit's public retirees were offered the choice between taking a serious but hopefully not catastrophic cut to their pensions and risking catastrophic cuts in the fight to preserve all of what they earned. Those who voted overwhelmingly chose to take the guaranteed but limited cut:
Under the city’s plan, general municipal retirees could expect 4.5 percent cuts to their pension payments, as well as an end to cost-of-living raises. Retired firefighters and police officers would see no cuts in their monthly pensions checks, but could expect smaller than expected cost-of-living raises.

Among retired and active firefighters and police who chose to cast votes, 82 percent voted in favor of the plan, officials said late Monday. And among general workers and retirees, 73 percent voted in favor. About 15,600 workers and retirees opted to vote from among about 32,000 who could have.

Two major bond insurers plan to fight the deal, saying the retirees getting to keep their modest pensions would be unfair to big-time finance companies. Because being a janitor or clerical worker providing decades of service to a city with part of your pay deferred to provide a pension for your retirement and being a giant bond insurer making a calculated risk are exactly the same thing, right? Alan Pyke offers some of the background that led Detroit's retirees to this point:
Questions remain about the broader bankruptcy process. There is significant evidence that top officials including emergency manager Kevyn Orr were always planning to push the city into bankruptcy court. Workers, pension fund representatives, and even the judge in the case say they were railroaded at various points by Orr, who managed to preserve the narrative that pension cuts were both inevitable and just despite the fact that it was Wall Street and mayoral corruption, not workers, that blew up Detroit’s accounting books. Orr’s numbers on pension shortfalls appeared to be so exaggerated that one municipal financing expert accused him of “pension voodoo” last summer. And Orr’s old lawfirm, Jones Day, is charging the city tens of millions of dollars for work on the bankruptcy case. In that context, getting away with "only" a 4.5 percent reduction and the elimination of cost of living adjustments to the pensions around which they planned their retirements actually does look like a win for Detroit retirees. A twisted, awful, unjust one, but worlds better than the total destruction it looked like they might be facing.

Statistical relationship between large-scale upward field-aligned currents and electron precipitation
  Source: Top Downloaded Articles This Week: Journal of Geophysical Research - Space Physics 2014-07-23 21:22:32 (3 hours ago) 
Abstract

Simultaneous observations of Birkeland currents by the constellation of Iridium satellites and N2 Lyman–Birge–Hopfield (LBH) auroral emissions measured by the Global Ultraviolet Imager (GUVI) onboard the Thermosphere, Ionosphere, and Mesosphere Energetics and Dynamics (TIMED) satellite are used to establish relationships between large-scale upward field-aligned currents and electron precipitation during stable current configurations. The electron precipitation was inferred from GUVI data using a statistical relationship between LBH intensity and electron energy flux. LBH emissions with >5% contribution from protons, identified by Lyman-alpha intensity, were excluded from the analysis. The Birkeland currents were derived with a spatial resolution of 3° in latitude and 2 h in local time. For southward interplanetary magnetic field (IMF), the electron precipitation occurred primarily within and near large-scale upward currents. The correspondence was less evident for northward IMF, presumably because the spatial variability is large compared to the areas of interest so that the number of events identified is smaller and the derived statistical distributions are less reliable. At dusk, the correlation between upward current and precipitation was especially high, where a larger fraction of the electron precipitation is accelerated downward by a field-aligned potential difference. Unaccelerated electron precipitation dominated in the morning sector, presumably induced by scattering of eastward-drifting energetic electrons into the loss cone through interaction with whistler-mode waves (diffuse precipitation) rather than by field-aligned acceleration. In the upward Region 1 on the dayside, where electron precipitation is almost exclusively due to field-aligned acceleration, a quadratic relationship between current density and electron energy flux was observed, implying a linear current–voltage relationship in this region. Current density and electron energy flux in the regions of the large-scale upward currents from pre-midnight through dawn to noon are essentially uncorrelated consistent with a dominance of diffuse electron precipitation to the incident energy flux.

mpicpp points out a new program from Verizon that is perfect if you don't mind being tracked. Are you comfortable having your location and Web browsing tracked for marketing purposes? If so, Verizon's got a deal for you. The wireless giant announced a new program this week called 'Smart Rewards' that offers customers credit card-style perks like discounts for shopping, travel and dining. You accrue points through the program by doing things like signing onto the Verizon website, paying your bill online and participating in the company's trade-in program. Verizon emphasizes that the data it collects is anonymized before it's shared with third parties. The program is novel in that offers Verizon users some compensation for the collection of their data, which has become big business for telecom and tech companies. Some privacy advocates have pushed data-collecting companies to reward customers for their personal information in the interest of transparency.

Women-owned businesses are common, but loans and funding for them aren't
  Source: Daily Kos 2014-07-23 20:41:18 (4 hours ago) 
Over the past few decades, the percentage of businesses owned by women has shot up, from 4.6 percent in 1972 to nearly 29 percent in 2007. But loans and government contracts haven't kept pace, with women getting just $1 for every $23 of conventional small-business loans given:
In terms of numbers of loans, businesses owned by women receive only 16 percent of all conventional small-business loans, and 17 percent of loans backed by the Small Business Administration. Their loan applications are more likely to be rejected than those from businesses owned by men, and the loans they get are likely to have more stringent terms.

Women also receive only 7 percent of venture-capital funding. [...]

Women are also falling short in receiving government contracts. Although Congress in 1994 set a governmentwide goal of awarding 5 percent of federal contract dollars to small businesses owned by women, it hasn't met that goal. The closest it has come is 4 percent, in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2012, the report said. Failing to meet the goal costs women-owned businesses nearly $5.7 billion in government contracts each year, it said.

The good news is that this information is coming from Democrats on the Senate Small Business & Entrepreneurship Committee, so the issue is getting some congressional attention. The bad news is fairly obvious—both in the funding numbers and in the likelihood that the current Congress, with Republicans controlling the House and choking up the Senate via filibuster, will actually do anything about anything of importance.

LPT: Put a piece of clear packing tape over the speaker on toys that are loud and obnoxious. It will significantly reduce the volume.
  Source: reddit.com: what's new online! 2014-07-23 20:12:39 (4 hours ago) 

I learned this when I nannied. Some toys don't have a volume control setting or the lowest setting is still intensely loud which gets super annoying when you've been listening to the toy for hours/days/weeks. A piece of clear packing tape will significantly cut down on the sound.

Don't use regular tape though as it peels up too easily and kids can choke on it. Packing tape stays put and because it's more clear they won't notice it.

Bob Dole still advocating for U.N. Convention on the Disabled: Will the Senate ratify it this time?
  Source: Daily Kos 2014-07-23 20:00:40 (4 hours ago) 
If you think wheelchair ramps are the gateway to worldwide domination by the U.N., congratulations:
the Republican Party is for you. Few things make for stranger theater than watching the old guard of the Republican Party try to reason with the clearly batshit insane ranks that rose up to take their place. For Republican ex-presidential candidate Bob Dole, ratifying the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is a no-brainer, a world effort to codify the standards to which nations should be held in regards to their disabled citizens. There's nothing much controversial in there, and it's largely based on United States law to begin with. When it got to the Senate in 2012, Bob Dole was on the Senate floor in a wheelchair pushing his former colleagues to ratify it, but it failed dismally because the forces of batshit crazy are far, far stronger than an ex-presidential candidate could hope to be.
Farris mounted a public campaign against the treaty when the Senate took it up in 2012, fanning concerns among prominent conservatives like Rick Santorum and The Heritage Foundation that it could infringe on the rights of parents whose children have disabilities, threaten states’ rights and become a legal tool for pro-choice advocates pushing against restrictive abortion laws. That's underselling it. When I was at CPAC there was an entire panel on this and other schemes of the United Nations to something-something, and there the audience was told by the supposed actual lawyers and experts that these conventions would allow the United Nations to come and take your children if they did not feel they were being cared for or educated properly. This is what Rick Santorum and the rest of the pants-wetting, Agenda 21-obsessed right absolutely believes will happen, once again because the entire movement is based on one asinine conspiracy theory after another, all self-tailored for maximum froth and panic, and it was this contingent of the right that convinced Republican senators to kill the treaty the first time around. I'm not kidding. They think treaties like this are a pretext to the United Nations invading us (with our own army, apparently) and taking our children for re-education and turning us all into vegetarians and communists and subservient to our endangered manatee overlords. They furthermore think that "liberals" have been plotting to craft these treaties to do all these things in order to turn America over to the all-powerful United Nations, thus circumventing conservatives to destroy American self-rule. You think I'm exaggerating, but I'm not.

Nadella’s “one operating system” ain’t new and won’t be one OS
  Source: Ars Technica 2014-07-23 19:40:10 (5 hours ago) 

While communication from Microsoft about its layoffs and reorganization lacks a certain amount of clarity, one statement made in its earnings call yesterday did appear to be straightforward: "We will streamline the next version of Windows from three operating systems into one single converged operating system for screens of all sizes" said CEO Satya Nadella.

The immediate reaction was twofold. From some parties, there were congratulatory noises, praising Nadella for this new strategy that moved away from the Ballmer-era multiple operating system. From others, there was glee that the "confusing" line-up of Windows, Windows RT, and Windows Phone would soon be gone and that in future users would no longer need to worry about what their devices were using. Some are even cheering the "fact" that this means that Windows RT will be killed off forever.

That Nadella's remarks provoked headlines and column inches is ever so surprising, however, because what he said isn't new, isn't really being interpreted properly, and wasn't really his idea.
