“We should no longer be the target practice of a ‘shoot first, ask questions later’ police force,” Assemblyman Christopher Holden (D) said, before listing the names of several other unarmed black victims of police shootings. The legislation is aimed at tackling the reality, as seen in studies, that police kill unarmed black men at disproportionate rates compared to unarmed white men. Supporters of the bill hope raising the standard for when lethal force is permitted will encourage officers to make de-escalation their first line of defense.

Mother-2-Mother Concerns: Green Stools • KellyMom.com
The occasional green stool is not unusual in the breastfed baby. Consistently green stools, however, are not normal for the breastfed baby. Most doctors don't seem to recognize this as a potential problem because they often define "normal stool" as that of the formula-fed infant. Baby's stool can be a wide variety of colors and textures , and not all of these are cause for concern. It is helpful to know what is normal for the bf baby as well.

Healthcare Bluebook
Healthcare Bluebook was founded on a simple, yet powerful idea: create fairness in the healthcare marketplace. The healthcare system makes it difficult to find information on quality and cost of care; this hidden information is putting patients at risk. This secrecy puts everyone from consumers to corporations at an unfair disadvantage — leading to gaps in quality of care and much higher costs.

What we won from Ramah last night – IfNotNow – Medium
"In the meeting last night, and again at a public event afterwards, Ramah alumni like myself told our stories, detailing the heartbreak we faced when we learned about the brutal realities of Occupation for both Palestinians and Israelis — only after graduating from years of Ramah programs. "In the meeting, Ramah staff listened to these testimonies and committed to action. Rabbi Cohen, the Executive Director of the National Ramah Commission, agreed that institutional exclusion of Palestinian narratives was unacceptable, and named staff training and curriculum changes as where he could make some changes. "The meeting last night was the culmination of months of pressure from Ramah alumni and other concerned members of the American Jewish community. Last fall, nearly 400 people sent letters to Rabbi Cohen, urging him to take action. When there was no action taken, dozens of us gathered on the steps of the NRC for a speak-out and teach-in, showing him what teaching the Occupation could look like."

Will We Ever Learn What Bob Mueller Knows?
> But Congress quickly released the document in its entirety. And the result was that the impeachment referral provision—meant to enshrine in law a requirement that independent counsels behave as Jaworski did—came to function in a very different way: as a vehicle for the special prosecutor to issue a detailed, evaluative narrative document that both reported the truth as the investigation found it and evaluated it against the law.

The Surprising Reason Why All Google Searches Aren't Created Equal | Colorlines
> I’m trying to dislodge the [common] notion that search engines are somehow online public libraries, that they are trusted, curated public portals that lead us to the most credible information. Part of the reason why people perceive search engines this way is because when you look for information that is utilitarian in nature, such as “Where’s the closest post office,” it will lead you to pretty accurate information. Those kinds of searches reinforce our trust that more complex ideas will be represented accurately. > This is where we get into dangerous territory because of the ways in which any marginalized community cannot trust that the kind of information that comes back about them will be true, or that it hasn’t been highly optimized towards some other purpose, like pornography. > So what happens if you’re in a minority group that doesn’t have the resources or the numbers to shape those searches? Those are the things I’m trying to point to because teachers and parents are encouraging the seeking out of answers through Google. The phrase, “Just google it” has become so powerful, and it’s acculturating people to think that Google has the answers. I think we have to ask what kind of answers it’s providing.

Omega-3s Aren’t So Great For Your Heart After All
Omega-3s were supposed to protect us all from heart disease and other health problems, but it’s taken some time for the evidence to catch up with the hype around these supplements. Based on a large and important study published earlier this year in JAMA Cardiology, that evidence is here: fish oil or omega-3 supplements won’t help people with heart disease.
