What Margaret Thatcher's rabbi taught about work, welfare, and unions

What Margaret Thatcher's rabbi taught about work, welfare, and unions Margaret Thatcher transformed the UK’s stagnant economy with a program of privatization and paring back the welfare state. This won her a savage attack from the Church of England – and a defense from the chief rabbi, who emphasized the religious and moral value of work and responsibility. Thatcher came to office 40 years ago this May. Despite the rebounding economy, Thatcher’s Conservati...

If You’re in Danger, Will Bystanders Help?

Almost every psychology student knows about Kitty Genovese, the 28-year-old Queens woman who was stabbed to death in 1964. At the time, the New York Times reported that no one had lifted a finger to rescue her. Though that story was later debunked—some people did call the police or shout down the assailant—Genovese’s death provoked a flurry of research on what’s now called the bystander effect. According to decades of experiments, the more people who are observing someone in trouble, the less li...

“Copyright Troll” Lawyer Gets Sanctioned (Again)–Sands v. Bauer Media

Attorney Richard Liebowitz has filed more than 1,100 lawsuits since the beginning of 2016, a campaign this judge calls a “downpour.” This initiative has not gone smoothly. The court recaps: Mr. Liebowitz has been sanctioned, reprimanded, and advised to “clean up [his] act” by other judges of this Court. As Judge Furman recently observed, “there is a growing body of law in this District devoted to the question of whether and when to impose sanctions on Mr. Liebowitz.” This particular lawsuit invo...

Photographer Sues for Failure to Provide Creative Commons-Required Attribution–Philpot v. WOS

“Philpot has been a professional photographer, in his view, since 2008.” (“in his view” = ouch). He has not found financial success. For example, “he once earned $0.88 for an image of Prince that he took at a concert he paid $2,000 to attend.” Prints of his photos maybe have generated $100 in revenue. Looking to goose his revenue streams, he has turned to serial copyright litigation–around 50 lawsuits and two blog appearances already (1, 2). The court says “the principal way that Philpot appears...

Judge Claims Same-Sex Marriage Is An 'Oxymoron,' Like 'Jumbo Shrimp'

A Kentucky judge has raised eyebrows after making a series of bizarre remarks on the subject of same-sex marriage ― in spite of the fact that he’s apparently ruled in favor of gay and lesbian couples in a series of adoption cases.  Speaking at the Francis Asbury Society in Wilmore, Kentucky on Sept. 8, Fayette Circuit Court Judge Tim Philpot argued that same-sex marriage was “an oxymoron,” not unlike “jumbo shrimp,” The Courier-Journal reported Thursday.   “The words ‘same-sex marriage’ don’t m...

Will Trump use the convention to broadcast a more moderate image?

By Nathaniel Swigger, The Ohio State University Most political candidates spend an enormous amount of time and energy crafting campaign images. When it comes to judging politicians, what you see is at least as important as what you hear. The pictures that appear on screen, especially the people who surround a candidate, can have a powerful impact on voters. In my work on campaign ad imagery, I found that viewers saw the people pictured in a candidate's ad as a cue for what kind of people that ...
