News Publishers Have Value Proposition Backwards on Facebook and Google

Maybe you’re following the discussion of the proposed Australian legislation that would require digital platforms such as Facebook and Google into negotiations to establish a price to be paid for news content that appears on their sites. A lot is at stake in how the world follows on as to Australia and how business models are developed to compensate various parties in this new age of news content circulation. Binding and mandatory arbitration clauses with awards that may favor news publ...

Undercutting “Imposter Syndrome”: Bragging Better

In the recent Harvard Business Review article “Stop Telling Women They Have Imposter Syndrome“, authors Ruchika Tulshyan and Jodi-Ann Burey discuss how imposter syndrome is rooted in systemic racism, classism, xenophobia, and other biases. They encourage us to overcome it by creating an environment that fosters different leadership styles and views diversity of racial, ethnic, and gender identities as just as professional. While we continue to work on changing our environments to dismantle bar...

"... the only one on my floor. A signed photograph of the Governor appeared in my closed-door office while I was out. These were not-so-subtle reminders of the Governor exploiting the power dynamic with the women around him. In 2018, I was promoted to Deputy Secretary for Economic Development and Special Advisor to the Governor. I initially turned the job down — not because I didn’t want the responsibility or work but because I didn’t want to be near him. I finally accepted the position at the G...

The hat is back...

 ... and a new head too. A tiny head... but a head nonetheless:  Yesterday, the head and hat were gone. Two days ago, the full-sized head was there, with the hat, and the overall effect was much more sprightly and exuberant, with the cane flung upward as if dancing like Fred Astaire. Today, with the warmer weather, the snow is sagging, and the snowman, bent over, seems to be using the cane like an old man who needs a cane. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

"A female passenger in an evening gown ran from the car, climbed the stone parapet along the Tidal Basin and... leaped headfirst into the frigid, inky water. Her splashdown would ripple into one of the capital’s most infamous sex scandals."

From "Fanne Foxe, ‘Argentine Firecracker’ at center of D.C. sex scandal, dies at 84" (WaPo). Standing near the car — drunk and bleeding — was her paramour, 65-year-old Wilbur Mills, the gravelly voiced chairman of the tax-writing U.S. House Ways and Means Committee and a man esteemed as a pillar of Bible Belt rectitude and respectability. The Arkansas Democrat, an ascetic grind who shepherded Medicare and other influential legislation through Congress, was also widely regarded as the most powerf...

Seeking the west coast of Yorkshire | Brief letters

Charity coffers | David Cameron | Hard crosswords | Yorkshire | Johnson’s journalism | Vaccine passportsBefore asking for government bailouts (UK charities urgently call on PM to set up emergency fund, 17 February), big charities should spend their own reserves. Cancer Research UK entered the pandemic with over £300m in the bank; the National Trust had £320m. I would urge everybody to be as generous as possible to charities, but choose carefully. You don’t want to see your hard-earned gift being...

Calls for mandatory Covid jabs conflict with Britons' right to say no

Analysis: idea is not as simple as it seems, due to the fact vaccination is not mandatory under UK lawCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageThe UK government has always said there will be no compulsory Covid vaccination. It is only nervously dipping a toe in the waters of the vaccine passport issue, which could have implications for those who do not have one. But some employers appear prepared to dive straight in. “No jab, no job,” says Charlie Mullins, who runs Pimlico Plu...

New commentary calling for Prez Biden to revive the US Sentencing Commission

In this post earlier this month, I wondered aloud about when we might reasonably expect Prez Biden to make needed appointments to the US Sentencing Commission.  This issue remained on my mind when I was recently asked to write a commentary for ASU's new Crime and Justice News site.   Specifically, I decided to write on "Reviving the U.S. Sentencing Commission," and here is an excerpt from this commentary (links from original): [F]ederal sentencing politics and policy development have transforme...

"Gallup's latest update on lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender identification finds 5.6% of U.S. adults identifying as LGBT."

"The current estimate is up from 4.5% in Gallup's previous update based on 2017 data." When I was in college, 50 years ago, the student group devoted to gay rights was called "The 10 Percent Society." The name was based on the broadly held belief that 10% of the population is gay. That wasn't even counting bisexual or transgender. Just gay and lesbian. Not too many people were open about it back then, but we were told to think that gay people were all around — 1 in 10 people. So I think 5.6% is ...

About that neckace.

(The photograph was taken at 6:45.) The post talked about a WaPo columnist who had pasted together a ramshackle argument that rested absurdly heavily on a couple things Trump's nominee for ambassador to Germany had said about how women look — that Hillary Clinton was "starting to look like Madeleine Albright" and that Rachel Maddow ought to "take a breath and p...
