The Harvard Cross-Burning - Lawyers, Guns & Money : Lawyers, Guns & Money
In 1952, white students burned a cross in Harvard Yard, protesting "8 black students living in a dorm. One of those students was J. Max Bond, who would late become a leading architect, not to mention being the cousin of Julian Bond. I was curious to see if Harvard had done anything to remember this really horrible incident, as it was the first I had heard of it. Turns out, no."

The 8 best budget turntables that won't ruin your records - The Vinyl Factory
The problem with the, admittedly welcome, increase in turntable popularity is the pitfalls opening up for the unwary. I’m talking about the wide range of cheap, cheerful and wholly nasty budget models that are regularly being advertised in lifestyle magazines from companies such as Crosley and Steepletone, GPO, AMOS and ION.

Under a hundred pound from Amazon, they may be, but they will quickly destroy your vinyl collection as their high cartridge tracking weight – the downward force of the need...

Nat Hentoff, Journalist and Social Commentator, Dies at 91 - NYTimes.com
Nat Hentoff's memoir Boston Boy closely tracked my dad's experiences, growing up in Boston in the 40s and 50s. They were both close in those years with some of the same jazz musicians, including Frankie Newton and Pee Wee Russell. Their paths continued crossing through the years in NYC. I interviewed Hentoff about Frankie Newton over the phone in the late 90s. I cold called him at his office. "I'm on deadline! What is it?!" He barked into the phone.

"[P]aper ballots are the best available technology for casting votes. We use two main kinds of paper systems in different parts of the U.S. Either voters fill out a ballot paper that gets scanned into a computer for counting (optical scan voting), or they vote on a computer that counts the vote and prints a record on a piece of paper (called a voter-verifiable paper audit trail). Either way, the paper creates a record of the vote that can’t be later modified by any bugs, misconfiguration, or malicious software that might have infected the machines. "After the election, human beings can examine the paper to make sure the results from the voting machines accurately determined who won. Just as you want the brakes in your car to keep working even if the car’s computer goes haywire, accurate vote counts must remain available even if the machines are malfunctioning or attacked. In both cases, common sense tells us we need some kind of physical backup system. I and other election security experts have been advocating for paper ballots for years, and today, about 70% of American voters live in jurisdictions that keep a paper record of every vote."

The researchers have coined the term “computational propaganda” to describe the explosion of deceptive social media campaigns on services like Facebook and Twitter.... In the case of the American election, the researchers noted that “highly automated accounts — the accounts that tweeted 450 or more times with a related hashtag and user mention during the data collection period — generated close to 18 percent of all Twitter traffic about the presidential election.” They also noted that bots tend to circulate negative news much more effectively than positive reports. One of the consequences of the intense social media campaigns will be a rise in what social scientists call “selective affinity.” “Clinton supporters will cut the Trump supporters out of their network, and Trump supporters will do the same,” Dr. Howard said. “The polarization of the election is going to make this stuff worse as we self-groom our news networks.”

We Can't Wait: Make Change Today
"Earlier this year, MTPC launched our ID Project, to help trans and gender nonconforming people change their names and gender markers on state and federal identity documents. Through this project, we pair community members with volunteers who are trained and willing to help in the navigation of this process: from filling out documents, to going with them to court, and everything in between. Since its launch, we've had a number of people sign up and begin the process. "But now, with the dramatic influx of need, we are struggling to meet all the requests. We need your help to make sure that everyone has access to the protections and support they need. Additionally, as with many processes, changing a name and gender marker is not free: - there are court fees, charges for copies of documents, and so much more. "So now we turn to you, our community and allies, to help MTPC. We need your help to manage all the incoming calls, requests, and coordination. We need to make funds available for community members unable to afford this vital process. We need you to help us make change today, before it's too late. "
