Eudocia Pulido had hopes, dreams, and fears too
"Eudocia Pulido's niece Ebia talks about the Aunt Cosiang that she knew, and what she wished she had asked Alex Tizon if he were still alive"

feel like for all the back and forth about the My Family's Slave feature in the Atlantic, this is necessary consideration...

How a Computer Predicts Schizophrenia and Psychosis - The Atlantic
“'In our study, we found that minimal semantic coherence—the flow of meaning from one sentence to the next—was characteristic of those young people at risk who later developed psychosis ... It was not the average. What this means is that over 45 minutes of interviewing, these young people had at least one occasion of a jarring disruption in meaning from one sentence to the next. As an interviewer, if my mind wandered briefly, I might miss it. But a computer would pick it up.'"

Suicide and the Economy - Elizabeth MacBride - The Atlantic
"My family had not only refused to speak of Roy, they rewrote the story of his death. Within hours, they closed ranks. A second cousin, a local policeman, told the newspaper Roy was subject to fainting spells. His mother said he died of a heart attack in a parking garage; according to another family story, he’d fallen in front of a train. Eventually, the lie became the truth. I flipped through the journals his mother wrote in 1950s. She mentioned Roy once, when a passerby reminded her of him. Then she went back later and whited out his name."

Why Don't Black People Protest 'Black-on-Black Violence'? - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic
"There is a kind of sincere black person who really would like to see even more outrage about violence in black communities. I don't think outrage will do it at this point, but I respect the sincere feeling.

"And then there are pundits who write more than they read, and talk more than they listen, and prefer an easy creationism to a Google search."

Hijacking feminism - Opinion - Al Jazeera English
"US women do not need to change their attitude; they need, first, job security, good childcare, livable wages for the work they do, and physical security."
"Indeed, it is extremely disturbing that for these high-powered women the 'woman problem' is no longer about social justice, equity and women's emancipation - as if these have already been achieved - but about affect, behaviour modification and well-roundedness."

Unpaid Internships Are a Rich-Girl Problem—and Also a Real Problem - Phoebe Maltz Bovy - The Atlantic
"We will only be able to successfully challenge the norm of unpaid internships if we move away from blaming the interns themselves. Female interns in particular are often taken to task for lacking marketable skills, perhaps for having studied feminist theory in college when the more feminist approach would have been engineering. But even if humanities-major jobs have always paid less, it is entirely different for them to pay nothing at all."

What Would Orwell Make of Obama's Drone Policy? - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic
Orwell: "Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness."

Adam Serwer: "The government needs the approval of a judge to detain a suspected terrorist. To kill one, it need only give itself permission."

TNC: Consider the notion of "imminence." Last year Eric Holder claimed that a lethal strike against an American citizen can only be made if to protect against "an imminent threat of violent attack." But the white paper states that imminence "does not require that the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons or interests will take place in the significant future." Effectively, the word "imminence" has no meaning beyond "we think you're a bad guy."

The Scary, Misunderstood Power of a 'Teen Mom' Star's Album - David Cooper Moore - The Atlantic
"Meaning seems obviously there but also impenetrable; like much experimental work, it establishes rules to be learned as you experience it.

"The album is dense, perplexing, and uncomfortable."

A Land Without Guns: How Japan Has Virtually Eliminated Shooting Deaths - Max Fisher - The Atlantic
"[E]ven the police did not carry firearms themselves until, in 1946, the American occupation authority ordered them to. Now, Japanese police receive more hours of training than their American counterparts, are forbidden from carrying off-duty, and invest hours in studying martial arts in part because they "are expected to use [firearms] in only the rarest of circumstances," according to Kopel."

How to Think Creatively - Tony Schwartz - Business - The Atlantic
1. Saturation: "a left hemisphere activity that paradoxically requires absorbing one's self in what's already known. Any creative breakthrough inevitably rests on the shoulders of all that came before it."

2. Incubation: "The second stage of creativity begins when we walk away from a problem, typically because our left hemisphere can't seem to solve it." ... "shift into right hemisphere in order to access new ideas and solutions."

3. Illumination: "Ah-ha moments... when you've given your left hemisphere a rest, and you're doing something else, whether it's exercising, taking a shower, driving or even sleeping."

4. Verification: "the left hemisphere reasserts its dominance. This stage is about challenging and testing the creative breakthrough you've had."
