“Optimism requires a degree of believing in things you can not or have not verified”. Especially where new technology is concerned. So be ready to bet, but never bet the ranch. “The key is an intentional focus on diversification, room for error, and avoiding single points of failure, particularly for big, non-insurable risks”

What we've learned about trans people has changed much over the years. It's good when people recognize the change.

The radical lessons of a year reporting on knife crime | Membership | The Guardian
Roughly a decade ago, the UN ranked Scotland as the most violent country in the developed world. Between April 2006 and April 2011, 40 children and teenagers were killed in knife deaths in Scotland; between 2011 and 2016, that figure fell to just eight. Glasgow witnessed the steepest decline – from 15 young people in the five years before 2011, to zero in the five years afterwards...
Scotland is its own place, and not all of this is replicable elsewhere. But it is a demonstration of what can be achieved if the political will is there. One of the big differences between Scotland and London is political: in Scotland, the public-health approach is funded by and answerable to a single democratic authority at Holyrood.

A viral hoax video has inspired Indian mobs to multiple, brutal murders

Someone edited a Pakistani child-safety education video to make it look like evidence of a ring of kidnappers was snatching children and taking them away on motorcycles; the video went viral in India, spread on Whatsapp, and it has inspired terrified mobs to attack and murder strangers on suspicion of being involved in the fictitious kidnapping rings.

The latest victims of the hoax are audio engineer Nilotpal Das and digital artist Abijeet Nath who were beaten to death when they stopped in a village in the state of Assam to ask for directions. Their murder was recorded and it, too, has gone viral -- it features one of the victims begging for his life as he is beaten.

There have been widespread protests over the hoax, with people chanting "don't believe the rumours."

The death toll from the hoax stands at eight. Dozens have been arrested for participating in mob violence.

It's a charmed life, rife with luxury and glamour and a doting husband who gives him the world on a silver platter. It's also a peculiarly lonely life, being married to the underboss of one of the biggest 'yakuza' in operation. Either way, Viktor wouldn't trade it - or his husband - for the world.


A day in the life of Mafia Wife!Viktor.

The Russia Investigation Isn’t Less Popular — It’s Just More Polarizing | FiveThirtyEight
And that was inevitable.
Are Americans growing tired of the Russia investigation? On Wednesday, a new Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 36 percent of registered voters have a negative view of special counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed last year to probe whether members of President Trump’s 2016 campaign worked with the Russian government in an effort to influence the election. It’s a significant increase from last summer, when only 23 percent of voters had a negative view of Mueller.
The poll got a lot of attention.
At first blush, Morning Consult’s survey appears to show that President Trump’s narrative about the Russia investigation — that it is a “witch hunt” run by politically motivated law-enforcement agents bent on undermining Trump’s victory — is taking hold, giving the president and his allies more ammunition to argue that Mueller should wrap it up.

Did the NRA Launder Russian Money to Help Trump Win the 2016 Presidential Election? - WhoWhatWhy
Prominent Members in Putin’s Circle Met With Trump’s Presidential Campaign
Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Russians connected to Vladimir Putin used the National Rifle Association (NRA) to funnel illegal payments to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Why would Russian money intended to influence a US election be “laundered” through the NRA?
Because foreign contributions to US elections — expressly forbidden by federal law — could be hidden from US oversight under a provision of the tax code that exempts “social welfare” organizations, like the NRA, from revealing their donors.
Just last week, McClatchy reported on a recently surfaced 2015 photograph showing that several prominent Russians tied to President Vladimir Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) were in contact with the NRA during the 2016 presidential campaign.
