Hospital 'abused' vulnerable adults in Durham - BBC News
The 17-bed hospital is one of scores of such units in England that provide care for just below 2,300 adults with learning disabilities and autism. [...] Dr Paul Lelliott, deputy chief inspector of hospitals at the CQC, told Panorama: "On this occasion it is quite clear that we did not pick up the abuse that was happening at Whorlton Hall.

"All I can do is apologise deeply to the people concerned."

The Department for Health and Social Care said it treated allegations of abuse with the "utmost seriousness", but could not comment any further because of the police investigation.

Many are detained under the Mental Health Act.

[...]

The Panorama findings come eight years after abuse was uncovered at another hospital for people with learning disabilities, Winterbourne View, near Bristol.

After that programme, the then prime minister, David Cameron, promised the mistreatment of patients would never happen again.

The sun may never set on British misconceptions about our empire | Ian Jack | Opinion | The Guardian
How much this avoidance has to do with Britain’s present feelings towards its old empire is hard to know. No doubt the history curriculum has changed since my day and, in any case, feelings about the past come from many other sources than the classroom. But according to a YouGov poll conducted around the time of the Rhodes Must Fall protests two years ago, 43% of British people believed the British empire was a good thing and only 19% a bad thing, with 25% believing it was neither. Furthermore, 44% felt that Britain’s history of colonialism was something to be proud of and only 19% felt it should be regretted. As to the statue of Cecil Rhodes at Oriel College, Oxford, only 11% thought it should be removed.

More than 24,000 Scots hospitalised because of drinking
50p minimum price per one unit of alcohol, to come into effect March 2018, after years of legal fight against the alc lobby vested interest. (Sugar Tax, ) - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-42066394 - Minimum pricing has been broadly welcomed by health bodies and alcohol awareness groups, who say it will target the kind of drinking that leads to the greatest harm. //
People from the most deprived areas are nearly eight times more likely to need help, according to the NHS. There were 36,235 alcohol-related hospital admissions last year - the equivalent of more than 100 a day. They involved 24,060 individual patients - up from the 35,376 admissions involving 23,656 patients the previous year. Alcohol-related admissions had been falling for almost a decade but the latest figures show there were 685.2 hospital admissions per 100,000 people last year - an annual increase of almost 2%. //&! http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/drink-related-hospital-stays-on-the-rise-1-4619230

In our focus on the digital, have we lost our sense of what being human means? | Genevieve Bell | Opinion | The Guardian
MAKE OUR OWN FUTURE - And of course, there are bigger questions about the role of technology more broadly. In making the machines smarter, we have sacrificed a little something of ourselves – we run the risk of being reduced to data and the decisions it drives. I believe we are more than data, more than just intelligence. I worry that, in our current focus on the digital, we have lost some of our agency and some of our sense of what being human might mean. But I don’t believe this is inevitable or irreversible.

Wie Wissenschaft und Fortschritt unser Menschenbild verändern - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Wissenschaft hat auch zum Thema Homosexualität Fortschrittliches beizutragen. Für Homosexualität - und für Bisexualität - gilt das gleiche wie für Linkshändigkeit: Sie ist angeboren. Möglicherweise gibt es Menschen mit einer homo- oder bisexuellen genetischen Disposition, die aufgrund von Umwelteinflüssen ein Hetero-Leben führen, aber in einem Punkt sind sich die einschlägig forschenden Wissenschaftler einig: Die Gene - und vielleicht pränatale Hormone - spielen eine zentrale Rolle für die sexuelle Orientierung.

Paradoxerweise nennen gerade diejenigen, die Schwule und Lesben am stärksten ablehnen, Homosexualität gerne "widernatürlich". Auch hier hilft die Wissenschaft: Homosexualität ist durch biologische und physiologische Vorgänge bedingt und damit eben genau das: natürlich. Widernatürlich ist dagegen der Versuch, homosexuelle Menschen mit Umerziehungsmethoden zur Heterosexualität zu bekehren. Weit schlimmer als das, was man all den Linkshändern angetan hat. [...] Religiosität ist kein guter Ratgeber

Torture victims in high court challenge to Home Office over detentions | Law | The Guardian
Seven victims of torture who have been locked up in immigration detention are at the high court, challenging as unlawful a government policy that allows some torture survivors to be imprisoned.

The seven, who include victims of trafficking, a man kidnapped by the Taliban, and two men tortured because of their sexuality, say the government should no longer be able to routinely incarcerate people who have experienced persecution. The charity Medical Justice, which works to improve the health of immigration detainees, is also part of the judicial review challenge.

Hawking: Humans at risk of lethal 'own goal' - BBC News
Humanity is at risk from a series of dangers of our own making, according to Prof Stephen Hawking. Nuclear war, global warming and genetically-engineered viruses are among the scenarios which he singles out. And he says that further progress in science and technology will create "new ways things can go wrong". Prof Hawking is giving this year's BBC Reith Lectures, which explore research into black holes, and his warning came in answer to audience questions. He says that assuming humanity eventually establishes colonies on other worlds, it will be able to survive. "Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or ten thousand years. [...] But he also said that future generations of researchers should be aware of how scientific and technological progress is changing the world, and to help the wider public understand it. //&! bit.ly/1RwS7yA

'Almost too late': fears of global superbug crisis in wake of antibiotic misuse | Society | The Guardian
Despite European Union regulations aiming to cut back on the unnecessary use of antibiotics, Dr Brown believes it will take more than just legislation to tackle the superbug crisis. Market forces will need to be compelled to cut usage, perhaps when prompted by a shift in public opinion, he said. “Those with a vested interest find ways around legislation. So, in addition to public policy we will need also the power of market forces,” he added. “When the public start demanding meat that has not seen antibiotics - because they understand that the meat may contain antibiotic resistant bacteria - only then will real progress be made. We need education about the threat.”

Jennifer Doudna, an inventor of a gene editing tool called Crispr-Cas9, said Asilomar was much in mind when the summit was organised. “I think it’s this generation’s version of Asilomar,” she says. “It’s a very exciting time, but as with any powerful technology, there is always the risk that something will be done either intentionally or unintentionally that somehow has ill effects.”

Rezension ǀ Was wäre ein selbstbestimmtes Leben? — der Freitag
Rezension Michael Pauens und Harald Welzers Schrift "Autonomie" verteidigt den Mut, sich seiner eigenen Autonomie zu bedienen [...] Zwischen derartigen Gewissensfragen erstreckt sich der Handlungsspielraum, um den es Michael Pauen und Harald Welzer in ihrem Buch "Autonomie. Eine Verteidigung" geht: Selbstbestimmung trotz Gefahr für das eigene Leben und das der Liebsten, innere Unabhängigkeit und Mündigkeit trotz der Gefahr der sozialen Isolation. Diese Erörterung ist so notwendig wie schwierig. Denn so notwendig und wertvoll Autonomie auf der einen Seite ist, so schwierig zu begreifen ist sie auf der anderen. Zwei Beispiele unter vielen: Handelt ein Veganer autonom? [...] Autonomie, so die Prämisse von und Pauen/Welzer, sei erstens eine Errungenschaft und zweites als solche stets wiederherzustellen.

Our environmental deficit is now beyond nature’s ability to regenerate | Environment | The Guardian
We are heading fast in the wrong direction despite the world gearing up to approve new sustainable development goals and a new climate accord [...] The world enters ecological ‘overshoot’ this year on 13 August, six days earlier than last year. All the world’s production and consumption for the rest of the year, this suggests, then runs up an environmental deficit beyond nature’s ability to regenerate itself and safely absorb our economic waste. It’s a highly conservative estimate, based on the best data available. // no amount of profits/money can't buy us a 2nd earth in 30 years. // Stop burning fossil fuels now: there is no CO2 'technofix', scientists warn - bit.ly/1UiJmqB - Researchers have demonstrated that even if a geoengineering solution to CO2 emissions could be found, it wouldn’t be enough to save the oceans

About Your Skin: What Nina Jablonski thinks you should know about your body’s biggest organ.
[ race is not biological, race and ethnicity is a social construct. baby/kids are not born innate racists. homophobes. transphobic. xenophobic nor antisemitic. ] [...] To most humans, races are creations of the mind that have social reality and that often have physical traits associated with them. So race is strictly a social construction? Yes, but that doesn’t make it any less real. When people identify as belonging to a certain group, the biological or philosophical status of the race doesn’t really matter. So race is a very durable construct and people have strong racial identities that are often tied up with physical appearance, but also include a lot of cultural aspects. [...] It’s very important that you create slaves as an inferior class as people. You dehumanize them by saying they are inherently immoral, inherently incapable of developing true human qualities. They are sub-human. This makes the whole slave trade much more palatable.

Toyota's Top Female Executive Resigns After Arrest : The Two-Way : NPR
[crony capitalism and Wall Street chews them up and spits them out without regard ] // Toyota in a statement today said Hamp resigned Tuesday, and the company accepted her resignation "after considering the concerns and inconvenience that recent events have caused our stakeholders." As Scott reported June 19, "A total of 57 pills were discovered by Japanese customs officials on June 11 inside a package that Hamp mailed to herself from Kentucky, declaring the contents to be a necklace." Oxycodone is legal in the U.S. with a prescription. Hamp, who was arrested June 18, has denied the charges. She told authorities she did not think she had imported an illegal substance, police said. Prosecutors must decide whether to indict Hamp by July 8. She is in detention, but has not been charged with a crime.

Earth is on the brink of a "mass extinction event" which could be equivalent in scale to the one that killed off the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, a landmark study by an international group of scientists has concluded. Researchers warned that deforestation, climate change, and overfishing have driven extinction rates to 1,000 times their normal level, Reuters reports. Duke University biologist and conversation expert Stuart Pimm says that "time is running out" to avert the threat of mass extinction.

Apple boss Tim Cook 'to donate millions' to charity - BBC News
[the super rich have to create a "pledge" and public campaign and organisational body to give away their wealth, so far has humanity come. being super rich doesn't mean you don't use other peoples stuff, you use public infrastructure and if not inherited, used public infrastructure et al to make your wealth.] He joins a growing number of the world's super-rich who are giving away their wealth, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Five years ago, billionaire investor Warren Buffett and Microsoft founder Bill Gates launched the campaign The Giving Pledge. It aims to convince billionaires to give at least half of their fortunes to charity. Mr Zuckerberg and over 100 others have so far signed up to the "moral commitment".

BBC News - Virginia eugenics victims compensated for sterilisation
Victims will be paid $25,000 (£16,000) following a legal fight by campaigners. Along with more than 30 other US states, Virginia once operated a sterilisation programme for individuals deemed undesirable or mentally unsound. More than 8,000 Virginians were operated on between the 1920s and 1970s. The state's programme was said to be the model for the Nazi eugenics policies introduced by Adolf Hitler when he aspired to create a master race. Several countries practised forced sterilisation during the 20th Century, including Sweden, Canada and Japan, [... Switzerland, Germany and other European countries until late into 1970's]

BBC News - A Point of View: Why do people relate to fictional characters?
But the people people need are not necessarily flesh and blood. People also need people who manifest all their own torturous confusions - about life, love and the pursuit of happiness - but whose own existence is quite immaterial. People need people who can show them just how difficult it is to maintain the illusion that one's the author of one's own life. [...] the delusion that we too are the authors of our own lives. That we are unable to turn to the last page of the book of our lives then read the fate inscribed there does nothing to counter our suspicion it has already been written - after all, the same is the case for Ethel Nairn and millions of other fictional characters, and as I believe I've already demonstrated, it's precisely this shared predicament which makes them so very worthy of our compassion.

Brasilien: Wasser-Krise in Rio de Janeiro und São Paulo - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Schuld an der Wasserkrise ist nicht der Bürger, der sein Auto wäscht", sagt auch der Klimaforscher Alexandre Costa von der Universität Caéra. "Der weitaus größere Verschwender ist die industrialisierte Landwirtschaft. Sie allein verbraucht 70 Prozent des Trinkwassers." Die Agro-Industrie ist Brasiliens wichtigster Wirtschaftszweig Sie produziert großflächig Soja, Mais und betreibt Viehzucht. 2014 exportierte sie Agrargüter im Wert von knapp 85 Milliarden Euro. Und sie ist verantwortlich für 88 Prozent der Zunahme beim Wasserverbrauch in den vergangenen vier Jahren - die Bevölkerung für zwei Prozent, bilanziert Forscher Costa. Doch es gibt wohl noch einen weiteren Grund der Wassermisere. Forscher wie Costa warnen schon lange vor klimatischen Veränderungen. Entgegen der offiziellen Linie der brasilianischen Regierung sehen sie einen Zusammenhang zwischen ausbleibenden Regenfällen im Südosten und der Abholzung des Regenwalds 3000 Kilometer entfernt im Amazonas.

"Besorgte Eltern" und ihr seltsamer Protest gegen Sexualkundeunterricht - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Das Bündnis "Besorgte Eltern" geht bundesweit gegen den Sexualkundeunterricht auf die Straßen. Unterstützung bekommt die Gruppe von radikalen Christen, rechten Verschwörungstheoretikern und Homophoben. [...] Anja Henningsen, die an der Uni Kiel Juniorprofessorin für Sexualpädagogik ist, geht davon aus, dass die Elternaktivisten den Aufklärungsunterricht ganz bewusst missverstehen. "Ein guter Sexualkundeunterricht greift die Themen auf, die im Alltag der Kinder und Jugendlichen eine Rolle spielen. Es ist hanebüchen, so zu tun, als wäre er damit eine Werbeveranstaltung für Pornografie und homosexuellen Lebensstil", sagt sie. In Wahrheit führe die Elternbewegung einen "subtilen Kampf gegen Homosexualität". [...] In einem Beitrag wehren sich die "Besorgten Eltern" gegen die Gender-Theorie - denn diese Lehre "unterstellt, dass jede sexuelle Orientierung gleichwertig ist und von der Gesellschaft akzeptiert werden muss".

In dieser Abstraktion liegt die Distanzierung verborgen. Und in der geübten Pflichtschuldigkeit das Freimachen von Schuld. Nicht im Sinne einer unmittelbaren Schuld der heutigen Generationen. Aber im Sinne einer Schuld der unterlassenen Erinnerung. Fast 60 % der Deutschen fordern endlich, endlich einen Schlussstrich. In dieser Zahl wird das Versagen einer deutschen Gesellschaft deutlich, die nicht mehr betroffen sein will. Die das Erklärbare ins Unerklärliche hüllt und das Beschreibbare ins Unbeschreibliche.

BBC Radio 4 - A History of Ideas, Historian Simon Schaffer on Beauty and Evolution, Feminine Beauty: A social construct?
Feminine Beauty: A social construct? // The French existentialist writer Simone de Beauvoir famously declares in her book The Second Sex that a woman isn’t born a woman, rather she becomes one. She means by this that there is no way women have to be, no given femininity, no ideal to which all women should conform. Simone de Beauvoir suggests that resistance to male stereotypes of beauty can mean greater equality. Voiced by Harry Shearer. Scripted by Nigel Warburton. &!&!&!& via http://www.reddit.com/r/FemmeThoughts/comments/2lqcw6/feminine_beauty_as_a_social_construct/ "it is feminism's goal to break away from that oppression and its labels.

Amanda Bynes, Robin Williams, and the Spectacle of Mental Illness | Let's Queer Things Up!
[making money on the cost of other people ] // "People with co-occurring bipolar and schizophrenia have one of the highest suicide attempt rates of any group. 70.6% of these individuals will attempt suicide in their lifetime. You would think this would frighten us, and that we would be offering Bynes compassion on the mere basis that what she may be facing is, without a doubt, deadly. Yet the vast majority of press and articles surrounding Bynes’ mental state seems to ignore the stark reality of her struggle, and instead, opt to mock her erratic and unusual behavior. Rather than recognizing that she may have an illness, they have turned mental illness into a spectacle to watch, enjoy, and ridicule. [...] If no one has explained this to you, let me be the first to say that it is morally repugnant that we, as a society, are mocking mentally ill people. [...] It’s all fun and games until someone dies, as was the case with Robin Williams. [&too LGBTQIA << hate speech & crime]

ISIS, the Yazidis, Kurdistan, and the Threat of Massacres in Iraq
http://www.reddit.com/r/TrueReddit/comments/2cse4r/as_the_world_focuses_on_gaza_a_genocide_may_take/ - "Prince Tahseen Said, “the world leader of the Yazidis,” has issued an appeal to Kurdish, Iraqi, Arab, and European leaders, as well as to Ban Ki-moon and Barack Obama. It reads: “I ask for aid and to lend a hand and help the people of Sinjar areas and its affiliates and villages and complexes which are home to the people of the Yazidi religion. I invite [you] to assume [your] humanitarian and nationalistic responsibilities towards them and help them in their plight and the difficult conditions in which they live today.” It’s hard to know what, if anything, is left of the humanitarian responsibilities of the international community. The age of intervention is over, killed in large part by the Iraq war. But justifiable skepticism about the use of military force seems also to have killed off the impulse to show solidarity with the helpless victims of atrocities in faraway places.

Stanford biologist warns of early stages of Earth's 6th mass extinction event
In a new review of scientific literature and analysis of data published in Science, an international team of scientists cautions that the loss and decline of animals is contributing to what appears to be the early days of the planet's sixth mass biological extinction event. [...] And while previous extinctions have been driven by natural planetary transformations or catastrophic asteroid strikes, the current die-off can be associated to human activity, a situation that the lead author Rodolfo Dirzo, a professor of biology at Stanford, designates an era of "Anthropocene defaunation." // Book http://bit.ly/M47bEd "our own downfall at our own hands.

The Tulisa Sting Wasn't Just Classist, It Was Informed by a Racism That Associated Her With Criminality | NOISEY
Yesterday Tulisa walked free from a drug trial that had the potential to destroy her career.

There was always something trap like about it - a cynical show orchestrated to drag a successful woman through the dirt.

Interview with Former UN Peace Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi - SPIEGEL ONLINE
USA World Police no more. [...] ISIS - The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. [...] SPIEGEL: What is your prediction for the future of Syria and the region? Brahimi: Unless there is a real, sustained effort to work out a political solution, there is a serious risk that the entire region will blow up. The conflict is not going to stay inside Syria. It will spill over into the region. It's already destabilizing Lebanon, there are 1.5 million refugees in the country; that represents one third of the population. If it were Germany, it would be the equivalent of 20 million. It is destabilizing because ISIS | SPIEGEL: the most radical and brutal armed opposition group, which seeks to establish a militant Islamic state | Brahimi: is active in both Syria and Iraq already, and Jordan is really struggling to continue resisting. Even Turkey! According to a senior Iraqi official, ISIS has carried out 100 operations in Syria and 1,000 operations in Iraq in just three months. | YT v=XDFi1lno1bs
