Wsj.com: Paul McHugh: Transgender Surgery Isn't the Solution
The government and media alliance advancing the transgender cause has gone into overdrive in recent weeks. On May 30, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services review board ruled that Medicare can pay for the “reassignment” surgery sought by the transgendered—those who say that they don’t identify with their biological sex. Earlier last month Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said that he was “open” to lifting a ban on transgender individuals serving in the military. Time magazine, seeing the trend, ran a cover story for its June 9 issue called “The Transgender Tipping Point: America’s next civil rights frontier.”

Yet policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention. This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken—it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes.

The transgendered suffer a disorder of “assumption” like those in other disorders familiar to psychiatrists. With the transgendered, the disordered assumption is that the individual differs from what seems given in nature—namely one’s maleness or femaleness. Other kinds of disordered assumptions are held by those who suffer from anorexia and bulimia nervosa, where the assumption that departs from physical reality is the belief by the dangerously thin that they are overweight.

With body dysmorphic disorder, an often socially crippling condition, the individual is consumed by the assumption “I’m ugly.” These disorders occur in subjects who have come to believe that some of their psycho-social conflicts or problems will be resolved if they can change the way that they appear to others. Such ideas work like ruling passions in their subjects’ minds and tend to be accompanied by a solipsistic argument.

For the transgendered, this argument holds that one’s feeling of “gender” is a conscious, subjective sense that, being in one’s mind, cannot be questioned by others. The individual often seeks not just society’s tolerance of this “personal truth” but affirmation of it. Here rests the support for “transgender equality,” the demands for government payment for medical and surgical treatments, and for access to all sex-based public roles and privileges.

With this argument, advocates for the transgendered have persuaded several states—including California, New Jersey and Massachusetts—to pass laws barring psychiatrists, even with parental permission, from striving to restore natural gender feelings to a transgender minor. That government can intrude into parents’ rights to seek help in guiding their children indicates how powerful these advocates have become.

How to respond? Psychiatrists obviously must challenge the solipsistic concept that what is in the mind cannot be questioned. Disorders of consciousness, after all, represent psychiatry’s domain; declaring them off-limits would eliminate the field. Many will recall how, in the 1990s, an accusation of parental sex abuse of children was deemed unquestionable by the solipsists of the “recovered memory” craze.

You won’t hear it from those championing transgender equality, but controlled and follow-up studies reveal fundamental problems with this movement. When children who reported transgender feelings were tracked without medical or surgical treatment at both Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic, 70%-80% of them spontaneously lost those feelings. Some 25% did have persisting feelings; what differentiates those individuals remains to be discerned.

We at Johns Hopkins University—which in the 1960s was the first American medical center to venture into “sex-reassignment surgery”—launched a study in the 1970s comparing the outcomes of transgendered people who had the surgery with the outcomes of those who did not. Most of the surgically treated patients described themselves as “satisfied” by the results, but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have the surgery. And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a “satisfied” but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs.

It now appears that our long-ago decision was a wise one. A 2011 study at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden produced the most illuminating results yet regarding the transgendered, evidence that should give advocates pause. The long-term study—up to 30 years—followed 324 people who had sex-reassignment surgery. The study revealed that beginning about 10 years after having the surgery, the transgendered began to experience increasing mental difficulties. Most shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable nontransgender population. This disturbing result has as yet no explanation but probably reflects the growing sense of isolation reported by the aging transgendered after surgery. The high suicide rate certainly challenges the surgery prescription.

There are subgroups of the transgendered, and for none does “reassignment” seem apt. One group includes male prisoners like Pvt. Bradley Manning, the convicted national-security leaker who now wishes to be called Chelsea. Facing long sentences and the rigors of a men’s prison, they have an obvious motive for wanting to change their sex and hence their prison. Given that they committed their crimes as males, they should be punished as such; after serving their time, they will be free to reconsider their gender.

Another subgroup consists of young men and women susceptible to suggestion from “everything is normal” sex education, amplified by Internet chat groups. These are the transgender subjects most like anorexia nervosa patients: They become persuaded that seeking a drastic physical change will banish their psycho-social problems. “Diversity” counselors in their schools, rather like cult leaders, may encourage these young people to distance themselves from their families and offer advice on rebutting arguments against having transgender surgery. Treatments here must begin with removing the young person from the suggestive environment and offering a counter-message in family therapy.

Then there is the subgroup of very young, often prepubescent children who notice distinct sex roles in the culture and, exploring how they fit in, begin imitating the opposite sex. Misguided doctors at medical centers including Boston’s Children’s Hospital have begun trying to treat this behavior by administering puberty-delaying hormones to render later sex-change surgeries less onerous—even though the drugs stunt the children’s growth and risk causing sterility. Given that close to 80% of such children would abandon their confusion and grow naturally into adult life if untreated, these medical interventions come close to child abuse. A better way to help these children: with devoted parenting.

At the heart of the problem is confusion over the nature of the transgendered. “Sex change” is biologically impossible. People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.

Dr. McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, is the author of “Try to Remember: Psychiatry’s Clash Over Meaning, Memory, and Mind” (Dana Press, 2008).

Aaron McElroy — Review in the Collector Daily
Aaron McElroy’s The Devil May Care is a parade of photographs of anonymous young women, often naked or half naked, and always “caught” in scenes of messy domestic banality. His photobook takes us on an intimate voyeuristic ride, capturing the female body from angles atypical for a male gaze, obscuring identities by cropping out faces, and concentrating on awkward and often far from flattering body positions. Yet nothing is too openly on display in McElroy’s pictures and his sensitivity brings a poetic and mysterious mood to the visual flow. He observes and captures, keeps things from being seen, and allows us to glance over his shoulder. His work is particularly compelling in book form as the paging from image to image conveys a fleeting sensibility that cannot otherwise be articulated by a single photograph.

Svd.se: Lugnet före stormen i lala-landet Sverige
I höstas publicerades den så kallade Genève-rapporten om världsekonomin. Den lyfte fram en ganska så oroande trend: att den globala skuldsättningen har fortsatt att öka efter finanskrisen. I en tabell över världens mest skuldsatta ekonomier alla kategorier hamnade Sverige på andra plats med skulder på 293 procent av BNP, endast slaget av Japan med 411 procent. Jo, ni läste rätt. Sveriges statsskuld är visserligen låg men det privata skuldberget är desto större. Siffrorna i denna typ av sammanställningar kan variera ganska mycket beroende på räknesätt, men i en annan rapport på samma tema från konsultfirman McKinsey hamnar Sverige i tio-i-topp när det gäller högst skuldsättning totalt och även högt upp på förteckningen över de som ökat belåningen mest mellan åren 2007–2014. […] LO-ekonomerna uppmärksammade tidigare i år att svensk ekonomi mätt som BNP per capita, alltså tillväxten i relation till befolkningsutvecklingen, stått helt stilla i sju år. Mellan 2008 och 2014 var tillväxten per person under noll procent. Det ska jämföras med en tillväxt på 3 procent om året mellan 1995 och 2007. […] Enligt de senaste siffrorna från Statistiska centralbyrån (SCB) har hushållens lån sedan början av 2008 ökat med 1 100 miljarder kronor, eller med 56 procent. Årstakten i utlåningen var i februari 6 procent. Därmed fortsätter en mångårig trend där kredittillväxten fortsätter att vara betydligt högre än ekonomin i stort. Det är ett samband som på svenska brukar kallas för ohållbart. […] Sverige är ett litet exportberoende, och alltså konjunkturkänsligt land. Dessutom med en mycket stor banksektor i förhållande till ekonomin, runt 400 procent, slaget bara av Schweiz och Holland enligt Riksbankens senaste stabilitetsrapport. Där påpekas också att svenska banker är väldigt beroende av att låna utomlands, är tätt sammanlänkade och har ganska litet eget kapital i förhållande till sin utlåning (bruttosoliditet). Och så har vi förstås bostadsmarknaden som lämnat stratosfären med en ökning av bostadsrättspriserna i hela Sverige på 19 procent bara de senaste tolv månaderna och över 150 procent sedan 2005, enligt Valueguard.

On a visit to Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, I found myself sitting across from a man named Karma Ura, spilling my guts. Maybe it was the fact that he was named Karma, or the thin air, or the way travel melts my defences, but I decided to confess something very personal. Not that long before, seemingly out of the blue, I had experienced some disturbing symptoms: shortness of breath, dizziness, numbness in my hands and feet. At first, I feared I was having a heart attack, or going crazy. Maybe both. So I went to the doctor, who ran a series of tests and found…

Vox.com: How Vox aggregates
I started as a blogger in the pre-social web, when the only way to build an audience was to have other sites quote or link to your work. Those links didn't drive a ton of traffic back to the original site, but they drove some, and sometimes you would get a new regular reader out of the deal. And that was basically how my career began. Everything I wrote, I wrote in the hopes that someone else would take it and try to use it on their site, with a link back to my site.

Review: MS-Optical Sonnetar 50mm f1.1 for Leica M
The Sonnetar 50mm f1.1 for Leica M is the latest lens design by Mr. Miyazaki from Japan, the man who brought us the 35mm f3.5 and 28mm f4 “Perar” pancake lenses before. The Sonnetar is not a pancake, but still not large either considering its speed. Based on the classic Sonnar design by Zeiss, the Sonnetar manages to be fast and compact at the same time. As with all MS-Optical lenses, it is designed and assembled by only one person, which is why it comes in limited numbers only. I had the opportunity to take a closer look at a pre-production unit of this unique lens.

The limits of unlimited OneDrive storage
The headline "The limits of unlimited OneDrive storage" as well as other statements in this article that reference OneDrive storage are inaccurate, as they ostensibly apply to OneDrive for Business - a separate service - NOT OneDrive. You state that "You might have unlimited storage capacity with OneDrive, but the 20,000 file limitation is actually much more limiting than the total capacity," yet OneDrive storage does NOT have a 20,000 file limitation. OneDrive for Business might have this limitation, but OneDrive does not. This is particularly relevant since the context in which you frame this is the opener "Microsoft is upgrading Office 365 customers to unlimited OneDrive storage, but that doesn't mean you can just put all of your files in the cloud." This frames the 20,000 file limitation as applicable to all Office 365 customers who are being upgraded to unlimited OneDrive storage, but that is NOT the case. This statement is false and misleading.

Reddit.com/r/stockholm/: prehensile_truth comments on Bör SL vara gratis men skattefinansierad?
Ja, av några väldigt enkla skäl.

Skattefinansiering skulle innebära att man kan sänka kostnaderna i verksamheten markant genom att avskaffa spärrar, spärrvakter, biljettsystem, biljettförsäljning, biljettkontrollanter, m.m. Motargumentet "man kan inte bara sparka alla spärrvakter, folk måste ju ha jobb" är helt befängt. Varför ska nån göra ett arbete som inte bidrar till att samhället blir bättre? Vore det inte en utopi om ingen behövde arbeta (med sådant de inte vill ...)?
Lokaltrafiken är en oerhört viktig samhällstjänst och den samhällstjänst i länet som förmodligen bidrar mest till regionens ekonomiska tillväxt. Ökad rörlighet bidrar till ekonomin och lokaltrafiken är absolut samhällsbärande.
Alla skulle vinna på det. Om du är rik och kör bil varje dag så vinner du på att så många som möjligt använder lokaltrafiken eftersom vägarna belastas mindre.
Lokaltrafiken är ett rent monopol. Det finns ingen konkurrens på marknaden och som Stockholmare är du i princip tvungen att nyttja lokaltrafiken. Månadskortet är redan som en skatt du i princip måste betala.
Ett motargument är "om det var gratis att åka, då skulle folk övernyttja systemet". Även detta argument är helt befängt, alla som har månadskort vet att man åker så mycket man behöver åka, inte mer. Du nöjesåker ju inte bussen liksom, så kul är det inte...

Edit: Ytterligare ett argument.

6. Om alla hjälps åt att betala lokaltrafikens kostnader så skulle det innebära att boendekostnaderna mellan innerstad och utanförliggande områden utjämnades, eftersom den som bor utanför staden inte behöver räkna in kostnaden för SL-kortet i sin levnadskostnadskalkyl. M.a.o. skulle det skapa ett ekonomiskt incitament för de som bor utanför tullarna och på så vis lätta lite grann på trycket på bostadsmarknaden.

How to Get Accurate Sony Colors in Lightroom
Our readers often ask us if it is possible to get Lightroom to provide the same colors as one would see from camera-rendered JPEG files when shooting in RAW format. Many photographers often choose specific color profiles in their cameras and they get surprised when images are imported into Lightroom and all those changes are lost. You might have noticed when importing files that Lightroom changes the colors immediately after import, when the embedded JPEG files are re-rendered using Adobe’s standard color profiles and settings. As a result, images might appear dull, lack contrast and have completely different colors. I have heard plenty of complaints on this issue for a while now, so I decided to post series of articles for each major manufacturer on how to obtain more accurate colors in Lightroom that resemble the image preview seen on the camera LCD and in camera-rendered JPEG images. In this article, I will talk about getting accurate colors from Sony DSLRs, SLTs and mirrorless cameras in Lightroom. Please see our other articles on getting accurate colors for Nikon, Canon and Fuji cameras.
