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

Why should Rachel Watt have to sleep in her wheelchair? | Frances Ryan | Opinion | The Guardian
This is the hidden face of Britain’s social care crisis: disabled people left without help in their own homes. Read most coverage of the cuts to social care and it is easy to believe the crisis solely affects older people. According to research by Scope, 83% of disabled people in this country are now living without sufficient hours in their care package. That means being unable to get out of the house or waiting 14 hours to go to the toilet. This is what happens when austerity strips £4.6bn from social care spending in five years. As the government squeezes local authorities, social care has been left with a “funding gap” – a gaping wound, shall we say – that is growing by £700m a year. The King’s Fund thinktank has told the Guardian that the financial prospects for Britain’s social care system in 2016 “could not be worse”. [...] The biggest trick the government can play is the myth that any of this is inevitable. [...] It is the political choice[.]

"Islamischer Staat": Fatwa belegt Missbrauch von Sklavinnen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Terrormiliz "Islamischer Staat" hat den Umgang mit versklavten Frauen bürokratisch genau geregelt. Das belegt eine Fatwa, die ein US-Spezialkommando in Syrien erbeutet hat. Das Dokument ist ein weiterer Beleg dafür, wie der IS den Islam verzerrt. [...] Der IS brüstet sich mit der Sklaverei [...] "Die Wiedereinführung der Sklaverei ist im Islam verboten"

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.

Greece isn't any old troubled debtor - BBC News
What is very striking - and important - about the agonised talks between Greece and its creditors is that no European leader has tried to bind the feuding sides together with a call to European solidarity, or with any emotive rhetoric about how this great monetary project is all about prosperity and peace for all eurozone citizens. [Career Politicians are are managing the status quo. They are no missionaries.] Nor has any great sense been conveyed that maintaining the wholeness and integrity of the eurozone is a matter of passionate principle. Instead the public and private debate has been couched in the language of national interests, rather than the imperative of keeping the so-called great European project on the road. [...] And some of them would say the creditors are in self-harming denial [not accepting a haircut or lengthy pause of repayment till economy is on a growth track] Or to put it another way, Mrs Merkel and Mr Hollande don't want the backlash from their own citizens.

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame - YouTube
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

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. This deconstruction also represents a point of departure from the failings of humanism. [...] feminist theory is broadly applicable to any marginalized or oppressed group"

This Legendary Accounting Firm Just Ran the Numbers on Climate Change | Mother Jones
This accounting firm confirms what we've been saying for a while. We don't have to choose between the the environment and the economy. In fact, we can't afford NOT to stop climate change. [...] We're 20 years away from catastrophe, says PricewaterhouseCoopers. [...] Overall, PricewaterhouseCoopers paints a bleak picture of a world that's rapidly running out of time; the required effort to curb global emissions will continue to grow each year. "The timeline is also unforgiving. [...] The pressure will be on the world's governments to come up with a solution to this enormous challenge at the much-anticipated climate talks in Paris next year.

Interview: Jenny Nordberg, Author Of 'The Underground Girls Of Kabul' : NPR
oppression, gender-based discrimination, ... " "I see how women are treated here. Why would I want to be one of them?" So she goes to great lengths to disguise herself as a boy, and she has constant daily arguments with her parents, who beg of her, "Can you become more feminine? Can you grow out your hair?" And she refuses. She will walk in a hunched-over way, in an exaggerated male fashion, and very much take on the attitude of a young man. This is how she's grown up, and this is what feels natural to her. So, there are a few who actually are able to resist, but most of the time, you don't go against your parents."

Syrien: Umweltzerstörung durch Bürgerkrieg hat jahrelange Spätfolgen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Ein großer Teil der biologischen Vielfalt ist im Irak bereits dadurch dauerhaft verloren gegangen, dass Wälder gerodet wurden und sich Wüsten bildeten. Das Umweltprogramm der Vereinten Nationen (UNEP) warnte vor langfristigen Gefahren, die von verschmutzem Grundwasser und nicht ordnungsgemäß entsorgtem Giftmüll ausgehen. "Studien zeigen, dass die Krebsraten in den betroffenen Gebieten deutlich gestiegen sind", sagt Angelika Claußen vom Verein Internationale Ärzte für die Verhütung von Atomkrieg (IPPNW). "Außerdem gibt es eine ansteigende Rate von Kindern, die mit Missbildungen geboren werden." Durch die Zerstörung von Häusern und Industrie sowie durch den Einsatz radioaktiver Uranmunition seien Schadstoffe in Oberflächengewässer und Böden gelangt. Mehr als ein Jahrzehnt später litten die Menschen immer noch an den Kriegsfolgen.

Kretschmann hatte sich nach Angaben seines Umfelds am späten Donnerstagabend dazu entschieden, angesichts mehrerer Zugeständnisse der Koalition dem Gesetz im Bundesrat zuzustimmen. Serbien, Mazedonien und Bosnien-Herzegowina gelten künftig als sogenannte sichere Herkunftsstaaten, wodurch Flüchtlinge aus diesen Ländern schneller abgeschoben werden sollen. Im Gegenzug erklärte sich die Regierung zu Erleichterungen bei der Residenzpflicht bereit.

"Ebola: Das Versagen der Pharmaforschung" Für die WHO ist der jüngste Ausbruch von Ebola ein „Gesundheitsnotfall“. Doch obwohl der Erreger schon seit fast 40 Jahren bekannt ist, gibt es noch immer keinen Impfstoff. Ebola zählt – wie Malaria oder Tuberkulose – zu den „vernachlässigten“ Krankheiten, für die sich die Pharma-Industrie kaum interessiert und öffentliche Gelder knapp sind. Forscher und Politiker fordern deshalb nicht nur mehr Geld, sondern ein radikales Umdenken. >> !!! capitalism doesn't server humanity well in all and every aspect. !!! too many times had government to step in to save humanity from extinction.

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.

For the most part, though, issues dear to social conservatives were a side issue in elections driven heavily by economic frustration. [...] The suddenness with which social conservatives became a force in Brussels has many progressives speculating that they are the creations of American social conservatives seeking to “export the culture wars.” [...] Today, American ties seem much more about a shared vision to build a global conservative movement rather than leaning on stronger and wealthier U.S. partners for support. // http://www.salon.com/2014/02/28/the_dying_right_why_christian_fundamentalists_are_in_panic_mode_partner/ || Pro Progressive - the hard things are hard bc they are worth doing it.

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.

Human Rights Watch: NSA-Überwachung schadet Journalismus - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kein Einzelfall: Amerikas Ausspähapparat erschwere die Arbeit investigativer Reporter zusehends, berichtet die Menschenrechtsorganisation Human Rights Watch (HRW) in einer Studie, die sie an diesem Montag vorlegte. Darin steckt tiefe Ironie: War es doch - neben den Enthüllungen des früheren NSA-Manns Edward Snowden - investigativer Journalismus, der das wahre Ausmaß der Bespitzelung überhaupt erst bekannt machte. Der Schnüffelwahn schade der Meinungs- und Pressefreiheit, klagt HRW. Uramerikanische Werte wie "Freiheit, Demokratie und eine offene, verantwortliche Regierung" seien "schwer bedroht" - durch die groß angelegten, staatlichen Überwachungsprogramme, gepaart mit verschärften, oft gnadenlosen Maßnahmen zur Geheimhaltung regierungseigener Interna. [...] "Wenn die USA diese Sorgen nicht schnell und effektiv anspricht, könnte das ernsten, langfristigen Schaden für das Gefüge der Demokratie in unserem Land haben"

The Down And Dirty History Of TMZ
“There’s no doubt: [Harvey] Levin absolutely changed the way celebrities function today.” TMZ has been responsible for breaking the biggest celebrity scandals of the last 10 years: effectively ending a 30-year career (Mel Gibson), tarnishing golf’s most sacred idol (Tiger Woods), and puncturing the pristine image of celebrity royalty (Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z). But it’s not just celebs: In 2009, it caught a bank spending millions of taxpayer bailout funds on a lavish party (Northern Trust), and, via spin-off TMZSports, instigated the $2 billion sale of an NBA team by applying the same surveillance to a racist owner (Donald Sterling) once reserved for the Hollywood stars and socialites.

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.

Martha Nussbaum - The Fragility of Goodness - YouTube
“Our emotional life maps our incompleteness: A creature without any needs would never have reasons for fear, or grief, or hope, or anger.” || http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2012/10/12/martha-nussbaum-take-my-advice/ + “To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control.” || http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2014/03/14/martha-nussbaum-bill-moyers-world-of-ideas/ || || Polluted by things we can not control. ... Tragedy comes only to those who live life. || Being a human means accepting promises from other people and trusting that other people will be good to you. When that is too much to bear, it is always possible to retreat into the thought, “I’ll live for my own comfort, for my own revenge, for my own anger, and I just won’t be a member of society anymore.” That really means, “I won’t be a human being anymore.”

Storm Surge - 2013/14 UK has been a victim too. >> Climate change deniers are sponsored and supported by the lobby of the Fossil fuel industry. Fossil fuel industry is the strongest most powerful political lobby industry in history, followed by Wall Street and big Pharma. *Christian Parenti http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Parenti // Koch Industries - Koch Brothers have huge interest in keeping the petrochemical industries they own, running.
