First Thing: Arizona Republicans again block effort to repeal near-total abortion ban : politics
Let's talk about the guy who helped pass Arizona's 1864 abortion law - The Washington Post - Meet the 'pursuer of nubile young females' who helped pass Arizona's 1864 abortion law ( serial child rapist wanted his victims to have his babies and here we are ... but listen -->) While Jones lived in Arizona, he was elected to represent Tucson in the 1st Arizona Territorial Legislative Assembly. And then, when that legislature convened in 1864, he was elected speaker of the House. And it was that legislature -- the one Jones presided over in 1864, after he had already abandoned his first wife, and married a 12-year-old and was just weeks away from marrying a 15-year-old, though still a few years away from marrying a 14-year-old -- it was that legislature that passed a law reading, "Every person who shall administer or cause to be administered or taken, any medicinal substances, or shall use or cause to be used any instruments whatever, with the intention to procure the miscarriage of any woman then being with child, and shall be thereof duly convicted, shall be punished by imprisonment in the Territorial prison for a term not less than two years nor more than five years." And it was that piece of legislation that, earlier this week, was reinstated as law of the land in Arizona. It represents a near-total ban on abortion in the state.

Since the 1960s, advances in resuscitation had helped to revive thousands of people who might otherwise have died. About 10% or 20% of those people brought with them stories of near-death experiences in which they felt their souls or selves departing from their bodies. A handful of those patients even claimed to witness, from above, doctors' attempts to resuscitate them.

Opinion | For children, social media has become a grim fairy tale - The Washington Post ... Today, phone addiction and social media have led to a global crisis in youth mental health, according to social psychologist Jonathan Haidt in a new book, "The Anxious Generation: How the Great Rewiring of Childhood is Causing an Epidemic of Mental Illness." Haidt cites as evidence the startling rise in childhood depression, self-harm and suicide, especially among girls, who spend a great deal more time on their phones than their male counterparts ... Haidt is issuing a cri de coeur to parents, legislators, social media czars and schools to take courage and collective action: Raise the age of internet access to 16 and facilitate age verification; require social-media companies (Meta, TikTok, Snapchat, X) to keep youngsters away from dangerous sites; make all schools phone-free by fall; make in-person play a priority.

Yellen says global concerns growing over China's excess industrial capacity : worldnews - They started out with basic, simple, and cheap trinkets and gradually climbed the value-added ladder. They are now doing a final push into the top of the industrial value chain: cars, ships, planes, and chips. But last year the had to accept the end of the real estate boom. That means all the people directly and indirectly involved in building and selling but also steel, cement and furniture industries basically collapsing. Some estimate this to be 20% of China's economy. They hope the advanced industry will replace the 20% but that is unlikely. Other countries producing these complex but profitable goods aren't going to allow it. However, they will probably dominate the market in the rest of the world ... Essentially, China is much more focused on the interests of consumers and strategic advantage, and less interested in whether investors make a profit. Therefore it can build things at scale and without having to worry about the greed and desires of corporates and investors.

During the early stages of the war, the army gave sweeping approval for officers to adopt Lavender’s kill lists, with no requirement to thoroughly check why the machine made those choices or to examine the raw intelligence data on which they were based ... This was despite knowing that the system makes what are regarded as ‘errors’ in approximately 10 percent of cases, and is known to occasionally mark individuals who have merely a loose connection to militant groups, or no connection at all ... Widespread concerns about Israel's targeting strategies and methods have been voiced throughout the course of the war ... Lavender, observed Adil Haque, an expert on international law at Rutgers University, is "the nightmare of every international humanitarian lawyer come to life."

Between the wars, and in the aftermath of his own daughter's death by Spanish Flu, Freud hypothesized an instinctual drive: an inherent, even biological, impulse to die in one's "own fashion." In so doing, Freud established, in an act of anti-Darwinian blasphemy, a primal conflict in every organism (and society) between the life instinct, Eros, the drive toward pleasure, unity, mastery, and self-preservation; and the death instinct, Thanatos, the drive toward destruction, disunity, death, and the numbing of passion.

Human Brains Have Gotten Astonishingly Bigger Over the Last 75 Years The size of the human brain ebbs and flows over the course of millennia, but a new study has shown an uptick in size between the brains of people born from the 1930s and those born in the 1970s. Increased brain size could also help explain why the incidence of dementia is decreasing, as bigger brains offer a buffer against “late-life effects” of brain diseases, such as Alzheimer's ... And while 7 million Americans live with brain diseases like Alzheimer's, the incidences of those diseases overall have decreased by 20 percent since the 1970s ...

Netanyahu is many things, most of them appalling, but he's not stupid, and it makes perfect sense for him to want Republicans to win -- which is going to make constraining him even more difficult.

A very popular plan that cant be achieved ... This analysis seems depressingly accurate: Several experts told CNN that Israel was facing an impossible situation because the goal it has set for itself -- eliminating Hamas -- is both unachievable and very popular domestically.

The key to understanding Trump's coalition is the intensity of his support among White people who are and who claim to be devout Christians.

But around the 1990s that began to change, and the numbers plunged after 2007. As the scholar Ronald Inglehart has shown, since that year, religious decline in America has been the greatest of any country of the 49 surveyed. By one measure, the United States today is the 12th-least-religious country on Earth. In 1990, according to the General Social Survey, less than 10 percent of Americans had no religious affiliation. Today it's around 30 percent.

One letter to a newly admitted Vanderbilt University engineering student showed an all-in price -- room, board, personal expenses, a high-octane laptop — of $98,426. A student making three trips home to Los Angeles or London from the Nashville campus during the year could hit six figures ... Whether this can survive the Court, who knows — they did, after all, hold that the authority explicitly granted by Congress to "waive or modify" student loans did not entail the power to modify student loans.

The Miseducation of Kara Swisher | Edward Ongweso Jr. -- The long and short of it is that Swisher is not a good journalist - - or, framed more generously, that she thrived in an industry with remarkably low standards for which we are still paying the price. For decades, tech journalism and criticism has primarily consisted of glowing gadget reviews, laudatory profiles, and reprinted press releases, all of it colored by Silicon Valley's self-aggrandizing vision of itself as a laboratory of a brighter future ... Swisher's intended audience is not you or me, but instead those with power: she writes about and for them. Over the course of a long and storied career closely reporting on the tech industry and its titans, she has aped their motions, sat at their dinner tables, drunk their wine, gone to their weird parties, played with their baubles, repeated their lies, and offered them counsel. Swisher may style herself as Silicon Valley's critic laureate, but she's much closer to the court fool.

A new possible explanation for the Hubble tension | ScienceDaily ... However, there has recently been an observation that could explain this. According to this, the Earth is located in a region of space where there is relatively little matter -- comparable to an air bubble in a cake. The density of matter is higher around the bubble. Gravitational forces emanate from this surrounding matter, which pull the galaxies in the bubble towards the edges of the cavity

The true Covid death toll - Lawyers, Guns & Money ... The bottom line here is that the global death toll from Covid is almost certainly (95% confidence interval) somewhere between two and a half and five times greater than the official number of Covid deaths. There are about seven million of the latter, while excess death statistics indicate somewhere between 18.5 million and 35.2 million people have actually died as a result of the pandemic to this point. Note that in this respect the United States does very well, with an excess death rate that’s only 20% higher than the official Covid death toll (Official toll: 1.17 million; excess deaths around 1.4 million). This isn’t surprising, in the sense that rich countries with advanced public health systems are likely to see much less of a gap between official Covid deaths and actual deaths. On the other hand, relative poverty plus authoritarianism produces very much the opposite effect:

The Trump and fascism question - Lawyers, Guns & Money ... So what's really embarrassing here? The fact is Corey Robin has been wrong since the beginning.

Since Robin once accused me of twisting his words in this regard, I will reproduce the whole quote: ... The irony of Trumpist/GOP politics is that it is completely dependent upon the constitutional order. In that regard, it's almost the complete opposite of fascism.

DeSantis's DePraved abortion ban - Lawyers, Guns & Money ... Now that the Florida Supreme Court has read the explicit right to privacy out of the state constitution to allow the ban on abortion signed by Ron DeSantis to go into effect, the situation is extremely dire. As Rachel Cohen observes, even calling it a "6 week" ban is highly misleading: The fact that opponents of legal abortion in America uniformly believe that it should be harder for teenagers who get pregnant to obtain abortions is a good illustration of the moral universe they inhabit, and it's not an attractive one.

Things are pretty awesome, says economist with million dollar household income - Lawyers, Guns & Money ... I kind of hate to be so snarky about this, because University of Michigan semi-celebrity economist Justin Wolfers makes some good points in this NYT op-ed, the central one of which is this: People think of higher prices as something that is being (unjustly) imposed on them, and higher wages as something that they've earned ... I'm but a simple country lawyer, but a quick glance at the government's historical income tables shows me that the 20th percentile of household income is currently $30,000, while it was $24,000 39 years ago (constant dollars obvi) which is, as Marcellus Wallace might put it, pretty [expletive deleted] far from doubling.

Baby bust - Lawyers, Guns & Money A big new study published in the Lancet tracks global fertility patterns over the past 80 years, and projects them out over the next 80. Total Fertility Rate (TFR) has fallen from an average of nearly five children per woman in 1950 to two and a quarter, with the global TFR projected to fall below the canonical population replacement level (2.1) by the end of this decade ... Another huge political problem is that there’s massive resistance to immigration in most of the countries that are in desperate need of immigration to redistribute global population in an economically efficient and socially just way ... This, along with climate change -- to which it's intimately related in all sorts of ways -- is likely to be the political and economic problem of the 21st century and beyond.

White House bashes 'dishonest' Republican criticism of Biden's transgender proclamation on Easter : politics
Fake right-wing panic about "trans" Easter is part of Trump's push for Christian nationalism : politics ... There was also some phony anger over the fact that none of the White House Easter eggs had religious symbols on them, ignoring the fact that this has been White House policy for 45 years -- including during the Trump administration ... But this fraudulent moral panic is especially alarming because it's not just about getting MAGA granny to believe she can stop her grandkids from being queer with a Trump donation. Increasingly, these phony outrages are being used by Republicans to justify their party's rejection of religious liberty and embrace of Christian nationalism.

As for the increasingly authoritarian and ethno-nationalist GOP's reluctance to oppose Putin, that's about as mysterious as Donald Trump's difficulties in getting conventional lenders to loan him more money. As for unconventional lenders, the financial ties between Trump and the Putin regime remain criminally under-explored, with the emphasis on "criminally."

I mean Quiverfull is actively working towards igniting global sectarian war in order to bring forth the apocalypse, and all belief systems will have assholes using them as an excuse. Just look at eco-fascists and the Khemir Rouge ... Same in Rockland County, NY. Our school district just eliminated an elementary school and restructured the other four due to the exploding ultra orthodox population. We're estimating we've got 5-10 years left before we have to move as the Hasidic community seeks to take over the school board so they can divert all the taxpayer money to busing their kids to the private yeshivas that are popping up everywhere in private homes. They already did this in East Ramapo.

Religion and Welfare Shape Economics for the Hasidim - The New York Times ... At least one-third of the estimated 7,000 Hasidic families in Williamsburg receive public assistance, according to neighborhood leaders ... And they have large families: the average household has eight children, neighborhood leaders say. Hasidic parents commonly say that large families are the most satisfying realization of their religion, which tells them to be fruitful and multiply ... The focus on religious studies results in children ending secular education at age 13, curtailing job skills. ... They have 6, 10 children, no computer skills ... But the Hasidim in Williamsburg have a unique, sophisticated and highly efficient capacity to generate documents that support eligibility for public assistance that do not always reflect reality.

In Hasidic Enclaves, Failing Yeshivas Flush With Public Money - The New York Times ... The Hasidic Jewish community has long operated one of New York's largest private schools on its own terms, resisting any outside scrutiny of how its students are faring. But in 2019, the school, the Central United Talmudical Academy, agreed to give state standardized tests in reading and math to more than 1,000 students. Every one of them failed. ... The result, a New York Times investigation has found, is that generations of children have been systematically denied a basic education, trapping many of them in a cycle of joblessness and dependency ... Segregated by gender, the Hasidic system fails most starkly in its more than 100 schools for boys ... The schools appear to be operating in violation of state laws that guarantee children an adequate education. Even so, The Times found, the Hasidic boys' schools have found ways of tapping into enormous sums of government money, collecting more than $1 billion in the past four years alone. The review provided a rare look inside a group of schools that is keeping some 50,000 boys from learning a broad array of secular subjects ... Now a nursing school graduate, Mr. Pape said he believes his Hasidic education was designed to keep him from leaving the community ... There are about 200,000 Hasidic Jews in New York, making up roughly 10 percent of the state's Jewish population

NYC school officials say yeshivas run by Hasidic community fail to teach students in core subjects | AP News Published 3:32 PM EDT, July 1, 2023 : Eighteen private Jewish schools run by New York City's politically powerful Hasidic community deprived thousands of students the required secular education in English, math, science and social studies that they need to function successfully outside their religious enclaves, according to findings from an eight-year investigation by New York City school officials

Judas and the economics of betrayal ... But on a more positive note, plenty of research suggests that acts of betrayal are rare. Most humans can be trusted it seems, not because they are genuinely good, but because it is in their interests to be trustworthy ... The apocryphal Gospel of Judas for example, casts Judas as an Easter hero, without whom there would be no Christianity. And in his short story Three Versions of Judas, the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges suggests that the disciple's act was a vital part of a divine plan, which he carried out despite realising that in doing so he would become history's ultimate villain. From that perspective, perhaps the kiss of Judas could come to be seen not as an act of betrayal but as the ultimate act of selfless cooperation.

US Census changes how it categorizes people by race and ethnicity ... Under the revisions, questions about race and ethnicity that previously were asked separately on forms will be combined into a single question. That will give respondents the option to pick multiple categories at the same time, such as "Black," "American Indian" and "Hispanic." A Middle Eastern and North African category will be added to the choices available for questions about race and ethnicity. People descended from places such as Lebanon, Iran, Egypt and Syria had been encouraged to identify as white, but now will have the option of identifying themselves in the new group. Results from the 2020 census, which asked respondents to elaborate on their backgrounds, suggest that 3.5 million residents identify as Middle Eastern and North African.

What is the meaning of Easter? - Carlos Sandoval The feast day of Easter was first a pagan holiday of renewal and rebirth. Honored in the early spring, it praised the pagan goddess of fertility and spring known as 'Ostara', 'Eastre' or 'Eostre'. The word "Easter" finds its etymology from the goddess's name. The Germanic folk, known as the Teutons, worshiped pagan gods and goddesses and it's believed that the origin of the Easter Bunny, hares and eggs can be dated back to the 13th century in Germany. Due to its prolific breeding tendencies, the rabbit became a symbol for Eostra. Eggs on the other hand were used as fertility symbols since antiquity. Originating among German Lutherans, the "Easter Hare" originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behavior at the start of the season of Eastertide. As a result, the Easter Bunny would come, just as Santa Claus would, bearing baskets filled with candy, chocolate, colored eggs, and such for the children.

Putin's Other War: Domestic Violence, Traditional Values, and Masculinity in Modern Russia ... The Battle For Traditional Values ... To many in the Church and politics alike, re-criminalizing domestic violence would run against these values. In the Russian Orthodox tradition, the family is a 'small church,' meaning that state interference in family matters like domestic violence would be tantamount to restricting religious rights. Some religious leaders, like Dimitry Smirnov, a Russian Orthodox archbishop, also worry that laws criminalizing domestic violence would break up the family unit, leaving Russian children to be adopted by "homosexuals." ... Putin's strategy to divert Russian attention away from corruption and towards morality has been incredibly successful ... Putin's use of masculinity, a subset of these traditional values, models a dangerous and violent type of masculinity to a receptive Russian male audience ... As Russia staggers into its 22nd year of the Putin regime, understanding why Putin has power is vital to understanding how he could be unseated, or, more immediately, how to avoid further destruction of women's rights within Russia.
