Hacker Activist Continues 18-Day Hunger Strike, Despite New Felony Charges 22.10.2016 Politics on
Martin Gottesfeld was rounding out the 16th day of his hunger strike in a Rhode Island prison Wednesday when he learned he had been indicted on three counts of felony charges by a federal prosecutor. Gottesfeld is an activist who was jailed on charges stemming from his politically motivated cyber attack on Boston Children’s Hospital. The 32-year-old systems engineer has spent the last few years trying to raise awareness about what he says is institutional child abuse. It’s what prompted him to shut down the internet in one of the country’s best children’s hospitals , and it’s the reason he’s shed 18 pounds in just over two weeks as a result of an ongoing hunger strike . Now, Gottesfeld is being  charged with conspiracy  and intentional damage to a protected computer — a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. He faces up to five years in prison and $380,000 in fines.    Carmen Ortiz, the U.S. attorney who indicted Gottesfeld, is the same one who targeted internet activist Aaron Swartz. In 2011, ...

What Doctors Want Politicians To Know About Abortion 22.10.2016 Politics on
At the third and final debate last Wednesday, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump drew a lot of criticism for his medically inaccurate and emotionally charged description of late-term abortion . Trump described a procedure that rips the baby out of the womb in the ninth month of pregnancy — a shocking characterization that medical experts have denounced and refuted as a gross distortion of the procedure. Here’s what he said: If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month you can take baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Now, you can say that that is okay and Hillary can say that that is okay, but it’s not okay with me. Because based on what she is saying and based on where she’s going and where she’s been, you can take baby and rip the baby out of the womb. In the ninth month. On the final day. And that’s not acceptable. In a blog post, obstetrician/gynecologist Dr. Jennifer Gunter  linked Trump’s statements to a general medical literacy ...

Latino Immigrants Are Changing the Politics of … Nebraska! 21.10.2016 American Prospect
If the winds of political change are starting to blow in Nebraska, the center of the storm is a third-floor office on 24th Street in South Omaha. There, huge maps of eight targeted precincts in Ward 4 line the walls of the Heartland Workers Center (HWC), covered in red dots for all the people organizers have spoken with over the past six months. Little stickers highlight the key issues in each neighborhood.  Every afternoon on weekdays, and all day on weekends, a row of reconditioned iPhones sits on a table next to clipboards holding signup lists and Spanish-language voter-education brochures. Rain or shine, young Latino organizers climb the stairs to pick up their packets and then fan out into the streets.  This is not an old-fashioned paper-based effort, though. Derek Ramirez, HWC’s data cruncher, has loaded voter information derived from the Voter Activation Network database onto the iPhones. This allows precinct walkers to know house by house whom they’re talking to, and to immediately input the ...

Nasty -- Trump's Toxic Impact On Our Children 21.10.2016 Politics on
"Such a nasty woman." -- growled Donald Trump, leaning into the mic to talk over Hillary Clinton while she discussed the importance of access to health care during the third and final presidential debate last night. There was a collective gasp across the nation as women, and men who respect women, recoiled and social media lit up in disgust. Trump seems to have forgotten that women are the majority of voters and that words like that land as gut punches across the nation. But this isn't the first time Trump has been oblivious to the impact of his words. In fact, he has blithely discounted the impact of words overall. "It's just words, folks. It's just words,"  said Donald Trump, during the second presidential debate.   The damage done by the "just words" Donald Trump has uttered in the debates, yelled during this election, spoken on the Access Hollywood tape, and spread at rallies throughout our nation will reverberate with our children, teens, and in our communities for years to come. His "just words" ...

The Worst Place on Earth: Death and Life in the Lost Town of Leer 20.10.2016
Leer, South Sudan -- There it is again. That sickening smell. I'm standing on the threshold of a ghost of a home. Its footprint is all that's left. In the ruins sits a bulbous little silver teakettle -- metal, softly rounded, charred but otherwise perfect, save for two punctures. Something tore through it and ruined it, just as something tore through this home and ruined it, just as something tore through this town and left it a dusty, wasted ruin.  This, truth be told, is no longer a town, not even a razed one. It's a killing field, a place where human remains lie unburied, whose residents have long since fled, while its few remaining inhabitants are mostly refugees from similarly ravaged villages. The world is awash in killing fields, sites of slaughter where armed men have laid waste to the innocent, the defenseless, the unlucky; locales where women and children, old and young men have been suffocated, had their skulls shattered, been left gut-shot and gasping.  Or sometimes they're just the ...
