We Don't Trust the Criminal Justice System Until It Clears a Black Man of Sexual Assault. Then We're All In
If CTG is guilty of what his accuser says, whether or not he was convicted, one can only hope that he’ll get his karma. The courts aren’t reopening his case for legal reasons. But the court of public opinion is just as damaging. Oddly though, Angela Rye will probably pay more for what CTG allegedly did than he will because she decided to wade into a pool that isn’t hers.

Janina Jeff Wins Spotify’s “Sound Up Bootcamp” for Women of Color Podcasters
For Jeff’s part, her podcast, “In Those Genes,” is specific to genetics and focused on her expertise. “The title is an ode to Ginuwine’s 90’s song ‘In Those Jeans,’ so, yes, it’s a play on words!” she explains. “And it’s aimed at helping African Americans uncover their lost identities. The idea came about from the number of times that people ask me about when they learn that I’m a geneticist. They want to know about DNA. Largely, we, as African Americans, have no idea about our DNA because our entire genealogy was erased due to slavery. So, I think genetics is an unbiased way of telling the community information to help them understand who they are.”

The other two young ladies to take home the $10,000 cash award were Titi Shodiya, scientific auditor at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, accrediting science labs in Washington, D.C., whose podcast “Dope Labs,” looks at the intersection between science and pop culture with cohost Zakiya Whatley; and Kristina Ogilvie, secretary for a disaster aid nonprofit in Washington, D.C., whose podcast “Your Job Seems Easy” is an interview show which explores the working lives of women of color.

Opinion | What Elon Musk Should Learn From the Thailand Cave Rescue - The New York Times

If Silicon Valley wants to help the world, there is a lot it can do, starting with making its own products safer and its own companies more just. Perhaps most important, it can develop respect for hard-earned expertise in areas other than its own.

Elon Musk and the Cult of the Celebrity Savior | Village Voice
But a society run on the benevolence of celebrities — or even the earnest helpfulness of strangers on the Internet — is a society in a state of permanent precariousness. The distribution of public goodwill is an economy not of labor but of attention.

It seems to me it is past time to create a political system that doesn’t leave our lives and deaths to luck. That is the potent, secret promise of sweeping social policies like Medicare for All, free public college, and a universal jobs guarantee: It doesn’t have to be this hard, this desperate.

Henry Cavill says he's scared to date post-#MeToo because he doesn't want to be called a rapist. Is he alone?
Ultimately, treating #MeToo as something abnormal because it holds men accountable for their behavior “speaks volumes” about men who feel that way, Durvasula says. “A potential partner wants to feel desirable and attractive, not like a prize or prey. There’s a difference.”

Before Children’s Grisly Deaths, a Family Fought for Them and Lost – The Appeal
More details about case of black kids being murdered by white adoptive parents (van plunged off cliff in California). One of the boys who was murdered, Devonte, was in the viral photo where he was hugging a police officer at a Black Lives Matter protest in Portland.

As for how the Harts were allowed to adopt Devonte, Jeremiah, and Ciara after an allegation of abuse had already been made against them, Shelton said that the lack of criminal charges in that case would most likely have made it pass under the radar of officials in Texas.

Sandra Oh on Her Historic Emmy Nomination for ‘Killing Eve’ - The New York Times
You want to know what? Let’s celebrate it, man. I’m serious, just [expletive] celebrate it. It’s like, we’ve got to start somewhere, we’ve got to start somewhere. And I’m happy to get that ball rolling.

But I am absolutely aware of the significance and take it very seriously because we need it. Not only just for my community — and hopefully what that means to be represented and seen — but also for culture. We’re a part of it. Let us not only see ourselves, but let others see us.

What Are ACH Payments and Should I Accept Them?
How to accept ACH payments at your small business

Small businesses aren’t set up by NACHA to be the ODFI or the RDFI in an ACH transaction. But you can use a bank or payments processor that is set up to run ACH payments.

Square leverages ACH to deposit the funds you process through Square into your linked bank account as quickly as possible. ACH transfers are batched and deposited on a set cadence. (We also use ACH payment processing to pay employees through Square Payroll and to deposit funds into sellers’ accounts through Square Capital.)

Square ACH deposits are available as soon as the next business day. If your close of day is set to 5 p.m. PT (the default) or earlier, your funds will arrive in your bank account by the next business day. If your close of day is set after 5 p.m. PT, your funds will arrive in your bank account within two business days. Learn more about tracking your deposits.

Want to get paid faster? Try Instant Deposit

If next-business-day deposits aren’t quick enough for you, Square offers another option: Instant Deposit. Instant Deposit allows you to move money to your bank account right away. You can instantly send up to $2,500* per deposit, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for a fee of one percent of the deposit amount.

Universal coverage is more general. I'd like to get everyone covered somehow. Maybe some people will keep their current insurance. Maybe some people will pay to get Medicare.

Maybe we leave the system mostly how it is. Maybe we change all of this gradually.

Rin Chupeco: Exploring journalism + revisionist history about civility when dealing with hate
Original Thread:

Speaking as someone born in the last years of a dictatorship, you Americans are already several steps in one. Ferdinand Marcos' greatest trick was convincing people all protesters were communist animals, so when they went missing, few cared. Even after bodies were discovered.

Melania Trump Is Just a Typical White Woman. That’s All
Some of these might be true. But what’s definitely true—and what’s been definitely true since we’ve know who Melania Trump is—is that she’s as shameless and repugnant as her husband is. She’s a trash person who’s lucky enough to also be a white woman in possession of a face that can communicate melancholy, which apparently is a force so bright and white that it conceals her stench.

Thread by Dr. Katherine Crocker: Against Empathy, Instead Cultivate Belief

Cultivate empathy, fine, okay, do it.

How ‘Desus & Mero’ Conquered Late Night
What they were able to do that night, better than anybody else on the air, was capture how black people really felt about West’s comments. About halfway through, Baker said: “He doesn’t realize we just want music and sneakers from him. That’s it. That’s it. We don’t want you to change the world, none of that [expletive].” He added: “I just want all white people to notice how black people are not trying to stop Kanye. We’re just looking at this like: ‘Word? You’re on your own, my nigga.’ ”

Lena Waithe, the actress and writer on “Master of None,” was a guest on the show earlier this year. She told me that going on “Desus and Mero” feels like how it must have felt for black performers to go on “The Arsenio Hall Show” in the early ’90s. “You could tell there was a level of comfort when they went on ‘Arsenio,’ ” she said. “They would talk about things they wouldn’t talk about if they were on ‘The Tonight Show,’ with Johnny Carson. I have fun on Jimmy Kimmel and James Corden, but I feel like, with [Desus and Mero], it felt like going to your favorite cousin’s crib and talking about the events of the day and what’s going on. It doesn’t feel like it’s a talk show.”

Do Not Ask Miss Tammye From 'Queer Eye' To Pick A Favorite Fab 5 Member
What advice do you give to those people who are struggling with acceptance?

The main thing is to love your child. When God gave me the revelation not to judge and just to love, I tell them there is more to your child ― and everybody ― than what they do in the bedroom. Your child is someone you would die for. That relationship right there mirrors God’s love more than anything.

“Coco” Is the Definitive Movie for This Moment
“Coco” is a movie about borders more than anything—the beauty in their porousness, the absolute pain produced when a border locks you away from your family. The conflict in the story comes from not being able to cross over; the resolution is that love pulls you through to the other side. The thesis of the movie is that families belong together.

The New 'Queer Eye' Is A Delightful Antidote To Toxic Masculinity
Toxic masculinity — which can manifest as extreme self-reliance, suppression of emotions and social dominance — is a very real and dangerous problem, and has been blamed by some for high numbers of depression and suicide in men. While Queer Eye is a brightly coloured confection package of a delivery system, it doesn’t reduce the importance of the work they help to tackle.

Reductress » Woops! This Black Woman Mentioned Edge Control and Now Her White Friends Think She’s Into Freaky Sex
“Edge control is literally just a product you use to keep those little frizzy hairs at your hairline in check,” she said. “These are women who use slang terms like ‘that just snatched my wig’ and ‘my edges are gone’, so I assumed they would know what I was referring to. But I guess they just adopt cool aspects of blackness without having any other kind of working knowledge about them.”

How And Why To Keep A “Commonplace Book”
A commonplace book is a central resource or depository for ideas, quotes, anecdotes, observations and information you come across during your life and didactic pursuits. The purpose of the book is to record and organize these gems for later use in your life, in your business, in your writing, speaking or whatever it is that you do.

Wisdom, not facts. We’re not just looking random pieces of information. What’s the point of that? Your commonplace book, over a lifetime (or even just several years), can accumulate a mass of true wisdom–that you can turn to in times of crisis, opportunity, depression or job.

It doesn’t have to just be material from books. Movies, speeches, videos, conversations work too. Whatever. Anything good.

Sarah Taber:
So, taking it that you said you live in Arizona and "your family has a farm in Chihuahua," a quick congratulations are in order. You're an absentee landowner! You're right at the peak of farming's social pyramid. Living the dream.

It's really interesting to me that the conversation around vegetarianism & the environment is so strongly centered on an assumptions that every place in the world is on the limited land/surplus plan. You know what region that describes really well? Northwestern Europe.
