Revisiting a Censored Film Noir that Tackled PTSD Decades before it was Acknowledged

quote [ For so many US veterans, the real journey home begins in the head – that long, winding road to psychological stability after the traumas of service. Even today, it’s a topic not easily broached given the stigmas surrounding mental health. It wasn’t until 1980, and under much controversy, that the American Psychiatric Association added the term “PTSD” to its diagnostic manual and classification scheme. ]

PTSD, I can't heal from it, yeah

Elon Musk on the Stand: ‘Pedo Guy’ Doesn't Mean ‘Pedophile’

quote [ Elon Musk, cofounder of Tesla and SpaceX, had tweeted the insult about Vernon Unsworth, the diver, in July 2018. Unsworth later sued for defamation. But in court on Tuesday, Musk advanced a defense he first made in a deposition in August: Pedo guy, he said, did not actually mean pedophile but the slightly less villainous creepy old man. ]

An explanation of what people are talking about when they mention "pedo" and "Musk" in the same sentence. Probably. Like... most of the time as of this moment. Maybe not other times. Use your best judgment.

The Big Data of Big Hair

quote [ If a picture is worth 1,000 words, one could argue that the hairstyle in your yearbook photo is at least 990 of them. ]

Interactive data and an some nice info on prepping it. Looks like they used a “mullet trainer”, if you're into that sort of thing.

Why Virginity Tests Are Making News — In The U.S. And Afghanistan

quote [ Virginity tests have been documented in at least 20 countries around the world, including Egypt, Indonesia and South Africa. And according to the U.N., increased globalization in the past century has resulted in requests for and cases of virginity testing in countries that had no previous history of the practice, for example, Belgium, the Netherlands and the U.K.

The test is administered for a variety of reasons: to determine whether a woman can go to school, get married, get a job — or whether she is a victim of rape. ]

Why are father's obsessed with their daughter's virginity? That's just seriously creepy.

Ex-cop details NYPD ‘collar quotas’ — arrest black and Hispanic men, ‘no cuffs on soft targets’ of Jews, Asians, whites: court docs

quote [ Cops who arrested black men were rewarded with more overtime, a now-retired officer, Pierre Maximilien writes in an explosive declaration filed Monday in a discrimination lawsuit brought by Sgt. Edwin Raymond and four other cops.

The declaration is one of the latest developments in a long-running case brought by black and Hispanic cops who charge they were forced to arrest more blacks and Hispanics than other groups. They were treated harshly and denied promotions if they refused, the lawsuit alleges. ]

It was known this activity went on, but more cops are coming forward about it. Best if taken in combination with the NYC subway stabber case in the extended.
