Libraries and museums are necessarily political. Where there is a library there is a memory hole. Where there is an archive, there is a frame. Where there are memory institutions, there are choices. And something is excluded. But who chooses?
“Gender is a fluid thing,” says Ashlee. She identifies as queer, and has long been aware of how gender can inform negative stereotypes. Now, she and her partner Froilan (who goes by “Flowers”) are following Nova’s cues, giving Nova room to evolve as they get older. “I’m hesitant to put my child in a box and say, ‘This is a non-binary person and that’s who they’re always going to be,’ because I don’t know,” says Ashlee. “Right now, I’m happy to respect their growth and development and will continue to follow their lead.”
Jane Ward, professor of gender and sexuality studies at University of California, Riverside, … believes this parenting approach could also help prevent sexual violence as children grow into adults. “We know that a foundational piece of rape culture is that boys are not raised to empathize with girls or to put themselves in girls and women’s shoes,”
The same strain of piscine orthoreovirus (PRV-1) that is known to cause Heart and Skeletal Muscular Inflammation (HSMI) in farmed Atlantic salmon — discovered in B.C. salmon farms by the same SSHI research team in 2016 — is now being associated with a disease called jaundice/anemia in Chinook salmon.
More impetus to quarantine fish farms, means moving them to land
Gotta read this…
The study serves as a definitive guide to Canada’s current energy realities and their implications for a sustainable future. It takes a detailed look at Canadian energy consumption, renewable and non-renewable energy supply, the state of Canada’s resources and revenues, and what it all means for emissions-reduction planning.

People prone to psychosis are also more likely to believe fake news. Is there a certain kind of person who is more likely to believe fake news? Yes: “Belief in fake news was associated with increased endorsement of delusion-like ideation,” according to a working paper from Yale’s Michael Bronstein, Gordon Pennycook, Adam Bear, Tyrone Cannon, and David Rand, presented at the recent Schizophrenia International Research Conference.
So, I understand why our various governments treat these shenanigans seriously, they have a political agenda that is pro-Israel. But, the press should be different. Cartoonish propaganda should be given the cartoon treatment. This is not what I saw. The “Iran Lied” slide made front pages. Also, hilarious that a government that lies constantly about having hundreds of nuclear bombs is taken seriously for accusing one of perhaps having lied about its intentions 10 years back…
Benjamin Netanyahu’s amateurish PowerPoint presentation in Tel Aviv this week – “Iran lied” flashed up behind him in huge letters – was in fairness a great improvement on the cartoonish diagram of an atomic bomb the Israeli prime minister held up at the UN general assembly in September 2012. But it served much the same purpose: to show that Iran can’t be trusted, and is poised to unleash nuclear havoc across the region
Since when did ‘true enough’ become the standard for newspapers-of-record?
To justify Site C, BC Hydro pretended that alternatives to new hydro power were expensive and unreliable.In fact, cheap electricity created by wind and solar frightens the utility. It’s one thing for consumers to buy zero power from the grid but it is something else if those customers are regularly selling electricity to BC Hydro.
Oh BC Hydro, the whole point of having a not-for-profit utility is to improve energy efficiency and advocate for your user-base, not maximize energy production and revenue…
The proposed new framework for identifying sustainably harvested salmon suggests that individual retailers develop criteria (or adopt others) that comply with this place-based foundation. Patagonia…

Hmm, we need threads or comments, on this microblog.
Also, we need to figure out how to test this with Press This.
Also, if multiple people edit a single note, maybe other authors could show up in the footer.
Would you eat land-farmed salmon if it resulted in better protection of wild salmon stocks and the banning of open net farms in BC? Would it change your mind if that land-farmed salmon was bio-engineered?
The company has said its fish are sterile and are currently only being raised in landlocked tanks. Those sold in recent months in Canada are thought to have been bred in tanks in Panama, but the company is currently laying the groundwork to expand its operations to Prince Edward Island on Canada’s east coast.
