The Mark of a Woman’s Record: Gender and Academic Performance in Hiring - Natasha Quadlin, 2018
Although GPA matters little for men, women benefit from moderate achievement but not high achievement. As a result, high-achieving men are called back significantly more often than high-achieving women—at a rate of nearly 2-to-1. I further find that high-achieving women are most readily penalized when they major in math: high-achieving men math majors are called back three times as often as their women counterparts. A survey experiment conducted with 261 hiring decision-makers suggests that these patterns are due to employers’ gendered standards for applicants. Employers value competence and commitment among men applicants, but instead privilege women applicants who are perceived as likeable.

The Bias Is Built In: How Administrative Records Mask Racially Biased Policing by Dean Knox, Will Lowe, Jonathan Mummolo :: SSRN
"Researchers often lack the necessary data to credibly estimate racial bias in policing. In particular, police administrative records lack information on civilians that police observe but do not investigate. In this paper, we show that if police racially discriminate when choosing whom to investigate, using administrative records to estimate racial bias in police behavior amounts to post-treatment conditioning, and renders many quantities of interest unidentified---even among investigated individuals---absent strong and untestable assumptions. In most cases, no set of controls can eliminate this statistical bias, the exact form of which we derive through principal stratification in a causal mediation framework. We develop a bias-correction procedure and nonparametric sharp bounds for race effects, replicate published findings, and show traditional estimation techniques can severely underestimate levels of racially biased policing or even mask discrimination entirely. We conclude by outlining a general and feasible design for future studies that is robust to this inferential snare."

Bernie Sanders Is Not Too Old, Too White or Too Socialist
Ignore the polls that put Joe Biden on top. While it's a fool's game to predict winners, Bernie Sanders is the frontrunner right now.

Examining the Role of Use of Force Policies in Ending Police Violence by Samuel Sinyangwe :: SSRN
We consulted legal experts, academics, and activists to identify a range of policies designed to impose common sense restrictions on how and when police use force against civilians. Then we reviewed the use of force guidelines of the nation’s largest police departments to determine where these policies were currently in place and whether they were associated with fewer police-involved killings. We found all of the policies to predict lower rates of police-involved killings, with substantially fewer police-involved killings among departments that have more of these policies in place. These results suggest specific changes to police department use of force policies can significantly reduce police violence in America.

-- the author seems to be a well known activist.

good to see activists taking efforts to do original research. I am not sure if this report has been reviewed by relevant subject matter experts.

tenneiah - Wolf's Bane
It's a world ruled by the humans.

It's been 30 years of wolves getting hunted and killed by them. 30 years of prejudice, taboos and discrimination between both species. 30 years since the leader of the werewolves was murdered, trying to achieve peace.

Still after 30 years, a nerd named Izuku finds himself assisting an injured wolf in the middle of the night, in the heart of Tokyo.

Amazon’s Home Security Company Is Turning Everyone Into Cops - Motherboard
Ring sells a very particular message: while you shouldn’t trust your neighbors, you can trust Amazon to help police it. The Neighbors app is free. But the more unsafe the app makes you feel the most inclined you would feel to dole out money for a Ring home security system.
