We're likely to need coronavirus booster shots after the initial vaccine

A volunteer receives an experimental coronavirus shot from a medical worker at Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, South Africa, June 24, 2020. REUTERS/Siphiwe Sibeko People may need to get booster shots after the initial coronavirus vaccine doses in order to stay protected, experts say. Other vaccines, like the tetanus shot, also require periodic boosters.  That adds further complication to the impending challenge of distributing coronavirus vaccines, which are likely to require two doses.

"Despite a new imperative to be scrupulous about affirmative consent, young men are still subject to incessant messages that sexual conquest... remains the measure of a 'real' man..."

"... and a reliable path to social status. As one high school junior explained, 'Guys need to prove themselves to their guys. So to do that, you’re going to be dominating. You’re going to maybe push. Because, it’s like the girl is just there as a means for him to get off and a means for him to brag.' I never intended to write about boys.

Boys in crisis: the decay of masculinity and how to renew it

Feminism provided girls with a whole new language to express the myriad problems-that-have-no-name, but there have been no credible equivalents for boys. In fact, the definition of masculinity seems to be contracting, according to Peggy Orenstein. When asked what traits society values most in boys, only 2% of male respondents in PerryUndem researchers asked men what traits society values most in boys, 2% answered honesty and morality, and 8% said leadership skills—traits that are, of cours...

US Magistrate Judge Provides The Template To End Copyright Trolling With Ruling Against Strike 3 (techdirt)

While we've been busily pointing out that the practice of copyright trolling is a plague across the globe, it seems there is something of a backlash beginning to build. For far too long, copyright trolls have bent the court system to their business model, with discovery requests and subpoenas allowing them to unmask internet service account holders on the basis of IP addresses, and then using that information to send settlement/threat letters to avoid trials altogether. Put simply, that is the b...

'Til Trump Do Us Part: The Relationship Deal Breaker We Never Saw Coming

In the last month, Anthony Scaramucci gained and lost the job as the White House communications director. He also lost his wife of nearly three years. Though they may have walked down the aisle together in 2014, it was also allegedly the aisle that divided them: Scaramucci’s wife, Diedre, is reportedly a Democrat that wanted nothing to do with her husband’s aspirations in Washington.Was it truly another Trump divorce? Only the Scaramucci’s can confirm that. (A lawyer denies that politics had an...

Why Skipping Vaccines Is A Public, Not Personal, Health Choice

(Reuters Health) - Too many U.S. adults are not getting vaccinated, putting themselves and others at risk, immunization experts say. According to the latest available data, about 44 percent of adults over age 19 had a flu shot; 20 percent had a TDAP  vaccine , which protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis; and 20 percent of 19-to-64-year-olds at risk of pneumonia had that vaccine (compared to 60 percent of those over 65). Just 27 percent of those over age 60 were vaccinated against...

Memorable books of 2016

It was not the best of times, world-events-wise, but books provided solace, insight, and – occasionally – distraction. Here are some books I read (or listened to) this year, and can’t stop thinking about.   On language and words The Word Detective: Searching for the Meaning of It All at the Oxford English Dictionary. Hired in 1976 as an editorial assistant (or “cub lexicographer,” as he puts it), John Simpson rose through the ranks at the OED to become its chief editor. His self-effacing b...

Why I Free Slaves: Rabbi Debra Orenstein

By Anna Bengel Slavery is a key part of Jewish identity. The central narrative of Jewish faith is being enslaved in ancient Egypt; it is the story the Jewish community tells on Passover, every Sabbath, and during daily prayers. The book of Exodus recounts the miracle of Moses parting the Red Sea, the defiance of the Pharaoh's daughter, the actions of the faithful who risked their lives to help those in bondage: the collaborative effort of people who, guided by God, helped liberate the Jews. The...

Your Ultimate Feminist Back-To-School Reading List

Required-reading lists have been under fire recently, with the Common Core diminishing classroom emphasis on literature without real-world relevancy. Fiction with no clear connection to current events ― so, say, Albert Camus’s The Stranger or even The Great Gatsby ― are eschewed in favor of more topical titles. On the one hand, this presents a curriculum quandary; those books inspired much of today’s writing, and should arguably be read as a foundation for further literary exploration.  On the ...

Are You Seeing a Good Therapist? 5 More Tell-Tale Signs

If you aren’t in the psychology field, it’s hard to know what you should expect from a therapist. After all, it’s different from looking for a surgeon or chiropractor or dermatologist. Therapy is a unique process, which requires you to be vulnerable. In fact, you might share things with your therapist that you’ve never shared with anyone else. So how do you know if the therapist you have or one you’re considering is actually a good clinician? In a previous piece we laid out five traits. A good t...

Apple Responds To DOJ's Attempt To Get Into Drug Dealer's Phone: Why You So Dishonest? (techdirt)

As we've discussed at length, there are multiple cases going on right now in which the US Justice Department is looking to compel Apple to help access encrypted information on iPhones. There was lots of attention paid to the one in San Bernardino, around Syed Farook's work iPhone, but that case is now over. The one getting almost but not quite as much attention is the one happening across the country in NY, where magistrate judge James Orenstein ruled against the DOJ a little over a month ago,...

7 Crucial Factors That Affect Young Women's Sex Lives

How can sex be better for young women? More pleasurable and less dangerous, actually empowering rather than a way to validate self-worth, less fraught with pressure, and frankly, more fun? That’s the investigation undertaken by Peggy Orenstein in her new book released today, aptly titled Girls & Sex. Though it doesn’t claim to have all the answers, Orenstein’s exploration, for which she interviewed more than 70 young American women, raises many insightful and important questions — even if they m...

Prosecutors Ask Judge to Review Pro-Apple Ruling in New York Case

The U.S. Justice Department yesterday appealed a New York federal judge's refusal to force Apple to help investigators unlock the iPhone of a suspected Brooklyn drug dealer. Last week, magistrate Judge James Orenstein ruled that the FBI lacked the legal authority to force Apple to bypass the iPhone's passcode, and that the prosecution's use of the 1789 All Writs Act was an unconstitutional overreach. On Monday, Reuters reported that prosecutors are now hoping to overturn the ruling and yester...

Fears about implications of unlocking an iPhone are ‘far afield,’ U.S. attorneys say

Several federal attorneys today filed a formal 51-page response to U.S. Magistrate Judge James Orenstein’s ruling against the government’s request to make Apple help it unlock San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook’s iPhone. The attorneys criticized many of Judge Orenstein’s points, which were widely reported and cited by some U.S. representatives in a congressional hearing last week. Judge Orenstein has been considering a separate but related case but weighed in because Apple was expecting t...

Broadly, the 1789 AWA allows courts to require compliance with their orders even when not covered by ...
