Quote of the Day: Thoughts on the Common Toad

How many a time have I stood watching the toads mating, or a pair of hares having a boxing match in the young corn, and thought of all the important persons who would stop me enjoying this if they could. But luckily they can't. So long as you are not actually ill, hungry, frightened or immured in a prison or a holiday camp, spring is still spring. The atom bombs are piling up in the factories, the police are prowling through the cities, the lies are streaming from the loudspeakers, but the earth is still going round the sun, and neither the dictators nor the bureaucrats, deeply as they disapprove of the process, are able to prevent it.

-- George Orwell

Radical Chicago Hacker Pleads Guilty to Stratfor Leak

Hammond and others of his ilk like to style themselves as hackivists but their actions show them for what they are: petty criminals and online thugs.

While some journalists and many in the hacktivism community have somewhat romanticized Hammond's anarchist character and hailed him as a hero on social media, often comparing his situation to that of Aaron Swartz, Hammond has a long and sordid history.

As a freshman at the University of Illinois Chicago, Hammond hacked into the website of his computer science department, which ultimately got him in trouble at the school, where he was not allowed to return the following year.

He was a well-known figure in the circles of protest movements, including that of black-bloc anarchists.  In a span of three years, he'd been arrested ten times in three different states, according to a lengthy profile in Rolling Stone magazine.

In a speech at Defcon 2004, Hammond spoke on a panel about electronic civil disobedience, citing politicians and capitalists as problems that should be addressed by hacktivism.
Hammond previously spent time in prison for hacking credit card information from the right-wing website Protest Warrior, which was a counter-protest group to the anti-war protest movement.  The website released details regarding the incident at the time, accusing Hammond of further using the attack to create public sympathy and to spread disinformation about the group.

In 2009, while still on probation for his prior arrest, Hammond was again arrested - this time during a protest in Chicago to oppose the proposed plan to host the Olympics, in which he burned the Olympic flag.  While he could have received more prison time for violating his probation, he ended up with community service, a curfew and some very tight probation terms.

Remembering the Aleutian Battles

Fifteen months of warfare in the frost and fog of subarctic weather ought to be tough to forget. But seven decades after the fight for the Aleutian Islands reached its banzai climax on May 29, 1943, the mistake-plagued allied campaign to drive Japanese forces from North America remains "the forgotten battle."

The campaign does rate a sensational headline: Japan Invades North America. The Aleutians campaign began in early June 1942 when a large Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) task force entered U.S. territorial waters and launched successful amphibious invasions of the Alaskan islands of Attu and Kiska.

Which leads to a second sensational headline: Japanese Invaders Conquer, Fortify U.S. Territory.

Obamacare: A New Surprise Everyday

Well they passed it and we're still finding out what's in it.

In a little-noticed speech to the Iowa Republican Party this month, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul mocked President Obama's signature health care overhaul, noting the 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes doctors will have to use in order to inform the government about injuries sustained by Americans.

Those codes, said Sen. Paul, a medical doctor himself, include line-items for 'injuries sustained from a turtle,' 'walking into a lamppost' and 'injuries sustained from burning water skis.'

6 Dancers, 1 Transparent Stool

Your bourgeois world-view will be challenged by the transgressive act of...public shitting.

Difficult territory is a cornerstone of the visual arts - so artist Mikala Dwyer knew it would be confronting last night when she invited Balletlab dancers to empty their bowels as part of a performance at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.

...The two-hour act saw the six dancers, masked but naked beneath sheer garments, move around a room in the gallery before sitting on transparent stools and performing - only if they were moved to do so - what is usually one of our most private and rarely discussed daily acts.

..."When Mikala brought this idea of a performance and film dealing with material transformation and ritual to us, we evaluated it as a key and bold move in her practice, one that links to a long artistic legacy looking at alchemical transformation and magical performance. The work, while challenging taboos, never becomes sensational or gratuitous. It's wonderful, powerful work."

Oh yes it's going to be powerful - which is why you don't want front row seats.

Has anybody else noticed the trend toward  people needing so badly to feel special that  even  if they are a loser, they have to be a special type of loser? 

 

For example, the  mother of the kid who planned to blow up the high school in Oregon explained that her son had PANDAS (Pediatric autoimmune neurologic disorder after Streptococcus), and then explained that it is a "special kind of OCD".    Not the garden variety of whack-o, but a special breed.

 

Or the whole  nonsense  of psychosexual identity- such that being a pervert is so mundane, being merely gay is boring, but being a transgendered, transitional polyamorous dolphin-loving coprophile is hip and edgy and cool?  

 

And many of these  "special" categories  invoke blame on some entity outside of self, so the perverse specialness is somebody else's fault. 

 

Or am I merely restating the obvious?

Re baby names: 18 years ago we were picking names for the twin daughters, Regrettably, we ruled out Polyhymnia and Terpsichore, but picked Emma for one daughter. It was a family name on both sides, solid, and distinctive (not a lot of Emmas around then, or so we thought) but not too unusual (like Maude or Gertrude).

Five years later there were three Emmas in her kindergarten class.

My son was born in Occupied Germany (West Berlin.)  No one else I knew was having children.  My daughter was born ten years later,  when we were living in Evansville, Indiana.  No friends were pregnant.

I managed to name BOTH children Christopher and Jennifer, the #1 names for their respective birth years.  Cue Twilight Zone music.

And my middle grandchild is Emma,  and was named after her great-grandmother.  Again with the spooky music.

175 Pre-party celebration tonight, red pepper beef burrito and a cheap bottle of wine.  A highly destructive, abusive, less than worthless manager is leaving tomorrow.  The part that really warmed my heart happened when his going away catered lunch was announced by email.  Within minutes the department reached a unanimous consensus to not attend and go out for pizza.

201 I was part of PW when all of that happened, it was in August of 2004.

Here's the email that guy sent out:

"Modern day nazis pledging their obedience to the State and the platform of state-sponsored terrorism - neo-fascist ProtestWarriors, you have been HACKED by your friendly neighborhood hacker anarchist =)

Right-wing extremists are modern-day brown shirts who abuse and harass activists who are fighting for social justice while claiming to be in the moral right. By infiltrating and crashing legal, peaceful assemblies, the ProtestWarriors are fighting against the democratic process while claiming to uphold the core values of this country. It is unpatriotic to blindly accept and obey the dogma of the ruling classes, and to lash out at peace activists who are trying to build a better world is intolerable. We're shutting you down.

Operation Liberty Rising is right. The Republicans think that they can rape NYC and the 9/11 attacks to further their political agenda of endless war and breaks for the rich upper classes and multinational corporations. The people of New York are rising up to let them know that they won't be getting away with it. Millions of people in the streets will be shutting the convention down, and your extremist right-wing minority can do nothing to stop it.

We\'re not fighting to put Kerry in office, and we're certainly not fighting for a socialist dictatorship. We are building a society free from all parasitic ruling classes... Democrats, Republicans, they're all on the same party of capitalism and the state. We dream of a world free from presidents and politicians who exploit us enslave us and do everything except represent us. We've had enough, and we will settle for nothing short of total world liberation for one and all. And we're willing to do whatever it takes to achieve these visions of a free society.

On our way to discovering what we love, we will discover everything we hate, everything that stands in the way of freedom and justice for all.

ProtestWarriors, give up! We have you surrounded and outnumbered. See you on the streets,

Before I go, some fun facts for the whole family: personal details of the head organizers of ProtestWarrior, complete with password information....

Hackers are organizing for a massive electronic civil disobedience campaign against the Republican party to coincide with the massive protests in New York City for the Republican National Convention.  This document contains logistical information on how people can participate in this campaign...."

Then he gives tells his fellow hacktivists what they are going to be doing to disrupt the RNC convention. It's a long email but it ends thusly:

"That's all for today, kids. Stay out of trouble, and don't get caught!"

202 "When Mikala brought this idea of a performance and film dealing with material transformation and ritual to us, we evaluated it as a key and bold move in her practice, one that links to a long artistic legacy looking at alchemical transformation and magical performance. The work, while challenging taboos, never becomes sensational or gratuitous. It's wonderful, powerful work." I never knew shitting was an alchemical transformation or that crap was magical. When my children were babies, they were accomplished alchemists, I suppose. Tireless magicians. I hate the thinking that drives such displays. An artist myself--sometimes a good one, I think--I can't help but feel that at some point in the late Fifties, early Sixties some of Marcel Duchamp's very worst ideas took hold in artworld academia and has run amok ever since. Thing is, Marcel Duchamp hated humanity. He was the complete misogynist. He viewed other people as two-dimensional objects worthy only of scorn and contempt, and loved only himself. So whenever I see a particularly pernicious piece of performance art (like the one described above) or a piece of incomprehensible (yet described as 'breathtakingly transgressive' post-modernistic expression standing in the round or hanging on a gallery wall, I imagine Duchamp staring back at me from whatever purgatory he rots in, smirking. 'You like my little joke?' he says. Bastards, all of them.

207 Longoria's thesis: "Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers" Oh, yes, as living next door to Mexico daily proves. They're like the dang Vulcans down there, a Star Trek wonderland--I understand they have elementary school kids make pocket fusion devices as larks, and toddlers have solved the problem of what happens to Schrodinger's cat. They obviously send us illegal aliens so they can be modern-day missionaries, teachng us poor Anglos how to abandon our primitive caveman ways, bereft as we are of scientific accomplishment and awaiting a wise Latina to give us what we lack. On a more serious note, I think the last thing in the world the engineering and scientific progress of man requires is the phrase "I'm from the Chicano Studies department and I'm here to help." Here's a real ProTip--if you want more Latinas in STEM, Eva, go be one. Nothing stopping you, except maybe your ability.

More likely her real name was "Promise of God". El-Izabet. . .

Detroit for the win. I don't give a dang about hockey, despite being Canadian, but my mother's family was from Detroit. But that's not why I want them to win.

 

Why Detroit then? Republican governor and most of the people that care about the Wings aren't in the dwindling city of Detroit. Chicago, for all the misery it helped supply to America, doesn't deserve the extra revenue that future playoff games will bring in. And if a few people in Chicago cry. or even off themselves after a loss, we all win.

Re: Baby Names:

The second fastest riser for boys was Gael, and for girls, Perla.  Both names most likely are on the rise due to the increase in the Spanish-speaking population in the United States.  Perla is the Latinized version of Pearl and is popular among Hispanic-Americans.  GaelÂ’s popularity could be tied to Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal.

This yearÂ’s winners for biggest jump in popularity in the Top 500 are Major and Arya.

The fastest riser on the girlsÂ’ list may have been influenced by the popular cable TV series “Game of Thrones.”  You also might trace MajorÂ’s increase in popularity to a cable TV show.  “Home by Novogratz” is a popular home design show featuring Major Novogratz, the youngest son of designers Robert and Cortney.

But she found a mid-wife who said she doesn't. She's thousands of miles away from me and won't listen to the rest of the family urging her to go to a fucking hospital in case something goes fucking wrong.

There is something about biblical names that really appeals to me. I am not very religious, but a name like Noah or Jacob carries a burden for the owner to live up to, but it is most often a positive burden. And this is not to say that only Christian names can carry that weight. But most names with gravitas are based on various religious histories.

 

Example: Elizabeth vs. Brandy.

Normally I wouldn't care, but if him and his ilk are going to go after "the rich" like evil Romney (without a hint of irony), it's about time we made them live up to *their* rules. Speaking of another with a similar-looking last name, Will Wheaton is an obnoxious prick too.

455 Here's my theory, whether you want to hear it or not: Detroit was going to peter out sooner rather than later. They didn't have much stress because they weren't expected to make the playoffs, much less make it past the first round. They may have felt some pressure after losing their lead in the Blackhawks series, but they probably would have fallen apart against LA or in the Stanley Cup final.

460 well i hate to be the odd person out on this topic, but there are many fine midwives helping women give birth to healthy babies. i do however think if you are at risk, it shouldn't be an option for you. Posted by: willow at May 29, 2013 11:04 PM (nqBYe) Willow, you aren't an odd person on this. I have a friend who is having her third home birth with no problems. I think if it works for you, it's great and should probably be the norm. But the anti-c-section/hospital birth frenzy is also a big problem. Pro-natural birth people seem to forget that women had a high probability of dying in childbirth or losing the child before modern medicine (they also had more children then, so that skews the numbers, but still).

477 I know there was something about the position of the baby. But the midwife said the baby had rotated so it would be ok now. She is willing to go to the hospital if the midwife says she has to. So it really comes down to the competence of the midwife now. I just wish they were in a hospital in case something goes wrong. It's that 1% or .1% or .01% where you need all the docs and fancy equipment. They won't have that.

Posted by: Flatbush Joe at May 29, 2013 06:12 PM (ZPrif)

478 Did my best to convince them to go to a hospital, but she said no. Not sure why the docs said a c-section was likely.

483 Whole different government to hate back then.

Yep. Whedon's "Firefly" and "Serenity" comprised one epic concern-troll against the Republican Party, from root to shrub.

He ended up uprooting the entirety of post-Civil-War liberalism, but this was by accident. I figure he realised his mistake when he (lamely) sold the series as being feminist, and totally not reactionary at all. Remember that "Equality Now!" shit he was selling?

488 elizabethe i agree it isn't a wise option for a few reasons.  high b/p for example,  small pelic or narrow  ischial  spine .  

most babies with proper nutrition of mother, and underliying issues are safe . this is what your Doctor or midwife are supposed to observe .

of course if somethng were to go wrong a hospital might be you best chance at that time.

but no guarantee, babies do die in hospitals also.

491 Flatbush Joe I had 3 c sections.  My babies were all big (9 pounds).  The third one, my womb nearly ruptured.  Had I gone into labor it would have ruptured and I would have bled to death.  Midwives are really pro VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean).  But depending on the size of the baby and condition of the existing scar tissue on the womb, it can be very dangerous to the mother.

Posted by: Flatbush Joe at May 29, 2013 11:12 PM (ZPrif) she'll probably be fine. birthing trainwrecks tend to be slow moving trainwrecks, so if she has to go to the hospital, their should be time. I had that with my first kid. I had the all natural 19 hour labor at the midwife birthing center and then a ride to the hospital for a c-section when things didn't progress.

497 Because *I* remember his linking the re-screenings of "Serenity" to international feminism. I saw one of those screenings in 2006. Never mind that he'd cut out most of the Inara scenes from the movie (they're in the "deleted scenes" on the DVD). "Serenity" was all about feminism, and not about subverting neoconservatism, no really.

541 Birth is in a week or so. There's nothing I can do or say to change her mind at this point. I have little sway anyway and she thinks science is all judgmental and right-wingy. She takes crazy risks all the time. If you tell her something has a 90% chance of success and a 10% chance of catastrophic failure -- she won't hesitate. Or take any precautions. She just assumes everything will work out fine. She doesn't really believe in statistics.

Twenty something and built with a body straight out of a comic book. Working as a restaurant hostess because she can't find a job that she can use her degree in.

572 Mindy: the other is the name James, translated from the Greek form, Iacobus (or however it's transliterated).

I have a Septuagint and a Nestle-Aland here... lemme check.

Iakob in the OT. Iakobos in the NT. Iacobus in the *Vulgate* NT.

I think James might derive from Vulgate Latin (and not the Vulgate Bible itself), like Italian "Giacomo".

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at May 29, 2013 11:25 PM (zrlmb) Some are arguably Greek (Luke, Mark) but, yes, the majority of NT names are found in the OT. As one of my profs said, to read the NT without the OT is like reading only the last chapter of an Agatha Christie. Hebrew Scriptures are by necessity Christian Scriptures. We cannot understand the passion and acts of God without them.

Its Latin form is Marcus (MAR-koos), meaning "sea-green" or "hammer".. Luke is a Greek name. Its Greek form is Loukas (LOO-kass), meaning from Lucania, a region in Italy. John is a Hebrew name. Its Hebrew form is Yochanan (Yoh-HAH-nan), meaning "Yahweh (God) is gracious".

599 Marcus is Latin. This is odd, given how culturally Semitic that Gospel is. But in a way, that makes me suspect it's *authentic*. Why invent a Roman name for an evangelist who might have been writing for Jews?

John and Matthew are, indeed, Hebrew names.

Thomas is Aramaic for "Twin". (If you count that as a gospel. I do. Most Christians don't.)

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at May 29, 2013 11:40 PM which offended your sensibilities, the pocket hose or the liquid plumr? that hose commercial is genius it is prime time infomercial double entendre. based entirely on that commercial I am buying a pocket hose even though I am on the 13th floor of an apartment building and could not possibly have a need for such a hose; I checked it is not rated for oiling oil or flammable liquids.

625 Rogan is a comic and UFC color commentary guy. Was in NewsRadio. Funny guy. Crazy. Super drug advocate and pretty into conspiracy theories. Like hardcore psychedelics and stuff. Huge pot advocate. Rogan goes nuts if he thinks another comic is stealing jokes. Goes all Ahab and does whatever he can to then ruin that comic's career. Rogan is hard to pin down. He recently had a big flare-up with feminists where they freaked out about something he said.

659 One part of the Aleutian campaign that was absolutely *never* talked about was the campaign to retake Kiska Island. American forces suffered 313 casualties - in spite of the fact that ALL of the Japanese had evacuated the island long before the Americans got there. ooops. Simultaneously, the Navy spent a day in the infamous "Battle of the Pips", in which they engaged in a long range firefight with various bird formations. It was confirmed after the war that there were no Japanese ships within hundreds of miles on the day of all the firing. Probably the most ridiculous part is that in the war with the Birds, the Navy was only able to pull out a draw.

684 577 The other comedians destroyed Mencia's career -- they accused him of stealing jokes. Which he might have done. Hard to prove that. There's a youtube video where Joe Rogan confronts him on stage about that. Mencia gets destroyed. His real name is Ned, too. Posted by: Flatbush Joe at May 29, 2013 11:32 PM I have a small conspiracy theory that Rogan and Mencia are really brothers. Same mother or father or something. Rogan's attack on Mencia was actually a play on the "no bad publicity" idea, trying to build both their careers. (seems to have backfired for them, mutually) Regardless, just look at their faces side by side. They are related.

693 Late to the conversation, but I agree with others about steering clear of a midwife for risky delivery. My son was in a complex breach position (breach with one leg straight up against his ear and arms hugging it). He would have gotten lodged in my pelvic bone during delivery and the lights out for both of us.Delays can be dangerous, especially with her being far from a hospital.As it is it took a lot of work for our doc to deliver him without breaking a leg or hip. *shudder*

When I was pregnant with our son, hubby and I joked that we'd name him Kwame Jesus to counteract his white maleness.Now we're kinda wishing we had named him something a little less WASPy (used family names). Oh well.

I don't get it either.  In a very  awkward way what I was trying to point out was that it is not the most important  part of  Morris' very substantive life whereas in today's Libland  a person's sexual preference is what is touted as being so important.  Like Jason what's his name who will be remembered more for being gay than basketball, a life well lived or anything else.

Morris is a favorite writer and I was just happy to see the ascent and the role she played in it.

Except that really happened is you got to see what The Man Show was always like.

Rogan and Stanhope got suckered into doing the show with network promises that they could make The Rogan & Stanhope Show out of it. (Also, the checks were gigantic.) Then they weren't allowed to do or say any Rogan & Stanhope stuff, only Man Show crap.

Carolla & Kimmel are actors who play comedians. They can make any kind of garbage seem like you should laugh at it. Rogan & Stanhope are actual comedians (and Stanhope was, at the time, the best one). They can't sell any jokes but their own, and they're not really even sure about those.

The show was always a bag of shit, but when they hosted, the bag was clear plastic. That's all.

734 Boron is a chemical element with symbol B and atomic number 5. Because boron is produced entirely by cosmic ray spallation and not by stellar nucleosynthesis,[8] it is a low-abundance element in both the solar system and the Earth's crust. Boron is concentrated on Earth by the water-solubility of its more common naturally occurring compounds, the borate minerals. These are mined industrially as evaporites, such as borax and kernite.

Then they took it further. People needed intensive study to comprehend increasing minute details about themselves. Women's studies, African-American studies, Chicano studies.

Is there a school out there giving degrees in left handed studies? Can I be the first to offer up my doctoral thesis in the field? It'll be completely illegible but trust me it's utterly brilliant and would make your brain drip out your ears if you comprehended an entire paragraph all at once.

823 Rand Paul is just another dumbfuck rabble rouser like his father Wingnut Sr. He's talking about the upcoming US conversion from ICD-9 diagnostic codes to ICD-10. Both versions have codes specific to accident types. ICD-10 has so many more because the system is meant to document patient information as completely as possible. The ICD system has nothing to do with Obamacare it's a worldwide classification system. So yeah, it sounds fun to demigogue it but it does serve a purpose, especially when it comes to medical research which is what it was designed for.

Ya, I figured it was a game thing.  Haven't gotten into the multiplayer/online thing.  Afraid to, actually.  I have plenty of other things that enjoyably waste my time already without adding another one.  (Not to mention the things that waste my time without so much entertaiment involved).

830 On the topic of getting old--

my wife shared with me something her father, a 94-year-old, WWII veteran (and survivor of a Nazi POW camp, having been shot down as a B-17 navigator in the first American raid over Berlin) said at a recent family get-together.

He said he finally realized he was getting old, when he looked around and all of his children (and spouses of children) sitting at the table were retired, including me and my wife (who admittedly retired very, very early).

Pretty funny, really, but poignant, too.

Also, doctors have to hire people just to cope with the more complex codes. Medical research is all well and good, but this is for the government's benefit, not the patient's. It represents another step away from the traditional one-on-one doctor-patient relationship to a depersonalized system where the patient is nothing but numbers in a government database.

The one thing you can always count on the Government to do, is over complicate everything.... where they take something needed... and turn it from workable, to ridiculous.

 

Its like the IRS and taxes... they took a needed government function, the gathering of taxes, and its now become so complex it has its own support industry, Lawyers, and huge group of government employees... and if you can afford to pay into that industry (like GE or Apple) you can pay less net taxes...

Greetings Dr. Gorpenpheiffer,

A recent audit of your medical treatment classifications has turned up some disturbing lapses in quality.

For example, last month you treated a Mr. Carl Ploof for a head injury you classified as: "Other" and described as "Patient had a rubber chicken nailed to his forehead with three shots from a Paslode nail gun by drunken friends".

Not only did you fail to describe the type and size of the nails, you also failed to describe if the chicken was a rooster or hen.

12p common nail w/Rooster rubber chicken is a number 153288 classification, w/Hen its a 153289.  Roofing nails are 153278/9 respectively for rooster/hen.

This grievous oversight compels us to take corrective action.  You are fined $50,000 payable immediately, or your medical license will be revoked.

893 Did the watch involve a dead girl or a live boy? If yes, become a Democrat and get an abortion. If no, give her yet another superlative fuck, and do not, repeat not, forget to love her up a bunch. It will make her forget or ignore.

Do they make a female version? Here honey, his and hers.


Eh, who am I to talk, I bought a rolex some years back and told the wife I did it because james bond probably has one. Of course years later now that it has to be serviced for the mere low price of $500, it just sits in the drawer, and the wife gets her revenge now by telling me to go have Q fix it.

899 ncj- how's it gonna go down?  She notices the watch, asks what it cost?  Notices the CC stmt?    I suggest lie like a rug; 'somebody left it in my cab' if'n the expenditure can be hidden some way.   Otherwise you're probably toast.

902 okay kids, I need an excuse which my wife will believe I bought a new watch and it was a little....pricy so to save my life, what would work? That depends on how much dishonesty you are comfortable with. 1. Lie. Tell her it's a cheap fake. 2. Tell her it's a collectable that will go up in value. (Lie) 3. Bite the bullet and buy her something similarly expensive. 4. Lie about the cost. 5. Tell her that your midlife crisis required you to either buy a Porsche, an expensive watch, or bang the neighbor's niece.

Funny true story. In the early 90's my brother bought a white neck-through solotist type charvel. His wife got pissed and goes and buys a new car, it started a chain reaction of other events that ended up in divorce. years later I was at his house and was playing the charvel, and its a fucking dream to play. My brother looks at me and says "yeah, that guitar cost me my first wife".


Without missing a beat I look up with a smile and said "good fucking trade". lol

Dive gear is life support gear. I remember one time we were off on a trip and someone was sneering: "oh, those little candy-ass dive computers. Whatcha gonna do when the battery goes out and you're completely screwed?"



So I reach into the BC pocket and say, "I'll just whip out this one." The BH and I always dove with three computers and we were constantly comparing our air usage -- so even if mine (integrated with air) gave out, we'd have a pretty good idea where we stood.
