New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward targeted for gentrification: 'It's going to feel like it belongs to the rich' | US news | The Guardian
The writing has been on the wall each time I've been back to the Lower 9th Ward since Katrina; and it is heartbreaking. They bulldozed the homes and now slowly but surely they are bulldozing the community and culture.

#26: Selma. by PostBourgie - Hear the world’s sounds
NPR's Bilal Qureshi and the writer Joshunda Sanders join G.D. to chop it up about "Selma," the much-discussed historical drama by the director Ava Duvernay. (Alas, we recorded this a week before the Academy Award nominations were announced, so we don't get into the film's perceived Oscar snubbing here.) Also, Bilal stumps hard for "Beyond The Lights," a movie that like "Selma," boasted a black woman at the helm. "Lights" tanked at the box office despite strong reviews, and Bilal said that it's in part because no one knew how to market it.

“I’ve decided that next time this happens I’ll just drive off with the person and start asking if they have the money for the “stuff.” As they stutter that they’re not sure what I’m talking about and that they must have gotten into the wrong car, I’ll tell them: 'Yeah, I bet Dave told you to say that. You know what? You can tell Dave he’s not getting his pets back until he pays what’s due. In fact, I want you to put that fancy-ass phone to your ear right now, call Dave, and tell him I said that.' At that point I’m pretty sure they’ll just jump out of the vehicle. Or, they’ll call Dave and tell him what I said. Another option is to treat it like a car-jacking and scream at the individual that I have a wife and kids and that they can have my car, just please don’t hurt me. "

The best PGP tutorial for Mac OS X, ever | Jerzy's Notes
When I decided to set up my Mac with PGP encrypted communications, I could not believe how hard it was -- not just to set up the software, but to understand how to use PGP properly. There was no "PGP for Dummies" tutorial for OS X on the internet. So I decided to write one. This is my über simple, nerd-free tutorial for anyone on Mac. In it, I will:

Cover exactly how to install and configure PGP on OS X
Demonstrate how to use PGP in real life

Decent Security
It is with those four words this website is founded. Computer, smartphone, and online security does not require a degree or years of experience. All it requires is someone show you the way.

You've been sold a lie. You can't buy computer security. It is something obtained through configuration and knowledge. Tragically, these aren't even hard to do or obscure to learn. But no one makes money telling you how to use what you already have. What you need is someone who doesn't care about your money or looking smart by spouting off fancy words of no consequence - just that you not be a victim.

It pains me to see people who distrust and fear their computers, and who feel powerless in that fear. Because that's not what I see when I look at computers and phones and websites. I see tools I trust with the story of my life, and the secrets I leave out when I tell that story to others. Everyone should be able to feel like that.

This site does not sell anything. This site does not take donations. This site has no one's name on it.
This site is to fix what is broken. Which is how we teach security.

In this article, I'll document a broad set of tools available on various platforms for working with TaskPaper documents. This will not be a description of the "ideal" but rather a catalog of options. Some work very well and some are unsatisfying.

I'll also mix-in some of my own custom tools and conclude with a small initiative to help expand on the available tools.

The Punctuation Guide
After searching the web for a comprehensive guide to American punctuation and not finding one, I decided to create my own.

In the early years of written English, punctuation served to mark pauses and other aspects of speech when text was read aloud. Over the subsequent centuries, punctuation marks were refined, eventually being used to indicate grammatical relationships between parts of a sentence. Today, punctuation serves both purposes, though the grammatical function dominates.

This guide shows the current style of American punctuation. British punctuation is slightly different, as explained here.

In creating this guide, I have consulted dozens of authorities, both online and in print. Where the authorities disagree, I either have explained the various positions or have presented the style I believe to be most useful. Fortunately, in most aspects of punctuation, there is general agreement.

Finally, as everyone knows, rules are made to be broken. Though it is a tired cliché that you must know the rules before you can break them, it is nevertheless true. This guide will show you the rules, but it is up to you to decide what to do with them.

Why 'Jew' Is Rarely Spoken Word in France — Even After Kosher Grocery Terror – Forward.com
This piece reminds me of when in 2000, I visited with my mother, sister and cousin a number of the villages in Belarus where my mother's parent's families had come from. On the sites of the mass graves where Jewish villagers were rounded up en masse, shot and buried, there were Communist-era monuments to "Russian citizens" murdered by the Nazis. The Jewish identity of the murdered was not mentioned.
