This net neutrality news is terrifying

This net neutrality news is terrifying. It means as extremists buy up the airwaves and internet companies, the information you learn from online sources could be blocked if they disagree with it politically. Very scared as to what it means for LPJ LEAGUE and all who fight for any kind of social justice.

Well, well

Well, well. Today is the day and I can't wait to see your beautiful, smiling faces!!
With great prizes including gift certificates to Spot Spa Boutique Northeast, Tilia Mpls, Victor's 1959 Cafe amongst others as well as fantastic drinks and a great vibe, where will you be?! It's almost here!!

PLEASE SHARE or JOIN if possible!
#FindGaia
As you may have heard on various news channels, we are now calling for EACH and EVERY one of you who possibly can to come to Swanage tomorrow (18/11) as of 12 Noon.
We will be line-searching as much of the rural area as we possibly can. It's time to Find Gaia.
As we are expecting a very large turnout, we are asking people to self-organise as much as possible. There will be 3 meeting points. Please pick one and park sensibly:
1) Durlston Country Park car park: BH19 2JL (South Swanage)
2) King George's Playing Field car park (main beach car park): BH19 1PW (Swanage town centre)
3) Day's Park car park: BH 19 1NN (North Swanage)
There will be at least one central organiser at each of these sites. We will have maps with a rough grid system. From there, we will be asking you to form long lines with approximately two feet between each person. We will then comb the area looking for any and every sign, clue, or piece of information we can find.
Due to the small number of volunteers organising this page, we will be unable to respond to individual transport queries. However, we strongly encourage those able to provide a lift or in need of one to post on the event page.
Remember to bring:
- Warm Clothes
- Sturdy Boots
- Water
- Hi-Viz if you have
Thank you all so much. You've helped more than can be possibly expressed. Tomorrow will be the MOST IMPORTANT day of volunteer search efforts yet. We hope to see you all there.
Let's go find Gaia.
Please share this post as far and wide as you can.

What Emily Wilson lets me think, but this is just the beginning, and it gets much worse

What Emily Wilson lets me think, but this is just the beginning, and it gets much worse.
“Now goddess, child of Zeus,
tell the old story for our modern times.
Find the beginning.”
That’s how the first stanza ends in Wilson’s new translation of The Odyssey. It begins by addressing another figure:
“Tell me about a complicated man.
Muse, tell me how he wandered and was lost
When he had wrecked the holy town of Troy,
and where he went, and who he met, the pain
he suffered in the storms at sea . . .”
Get to the origin, discover the source, find your way home. What is the cause of this pain, and how do you, Muse, Goddess, or mere poet, new translator, yet another interpreter, redeem the suffering of this man, who seems clever enough—cruel enough—to survive even our world, these modern times?
“He is more sensible than other humans,” Zeus says, we’re still in Book 1, when Athena accuses her father of forgetting Odysseus, leaving him to languish on the shore of Calypso’s island, begging to be unbound from the immortality she offers him. How is he more sensible, Zeus?
Because he wants to die. For that is what it means to refuse Calypso’s offer. Maybe he’ll get home if she equips him properly, maybe not. But if he leaves the island, he’ll die like every other human being, sooner or later.
That iis what he wants. How does this desire make him more sensible than the rest of us?

Chili recipe, to the best of my knowledge

Chili recipe, to the best of my knowledge. Call it memory.
Ingredients (of these I am not sure):
Olive oil--you'd start without it?
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic
2 lbs. ground beef (85% lean, otherwise you got rawhide)
3 28 oz. cans of tomatoes, one diced, otherwise whole
3 cans beans, two black, one kidney
1 bottle of beer, preferably a dark ale
1 glass of wine, a Pinot Noir if available
3 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp cumin
1 tsp allspice
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp of every fucking thing else you got, cardamon, cinnamon, chocolate, cloves, oregano, coriander, paprika (both crucial), and while you do this read some Auerbach. Or the Bible. Or the Odyssey, as Emily Wilson renders it.
Just know that you might come to tears as you're cooking, whatever book you pick up, and then lean forward--not in--and add this watery salt from your own eyes to the food, maybe it will season what you're cooking.
Saute the onions and garlic until softened, add the ground beef, then think about what you want to be when you grow up because this step will determine the next one, or maybe ask this of yourself, am I an asshole already, and, if so, how would I remedy the situation?
I never got around to the last question. You?
Add the beans with their liquid, tomatoes, and spices, including the alcohol, and then relax. In two hours or so, you got something edible. Maybe.

There are two types of well-educated people, the ones who want you to know they went to Harvard or Oxford and the ones who want you to know they didn't. The former tend to be relaxed about their learning, the latter not so much. I'm not proud of it, but I am of the latter type, ever since a schmuck from Hopkins expressed amazement that I was intent on a degree from Northern Illinois University. That was in the Indiana State lLibrary, April of 1976. He was wearing a suit and tie; I was wearing a sweatshirt.
Now, the smartest people I've ever met never even got close to these august institutions and their educational ancillaries. They went elsewhere, into finance or carpentry or the military. They're mostly dead, or, if alive, mostly oblivious, drunkards and the like. You can't blame them for that unwanted condition.
But last night there I was surrounded by really well-educated people who were also incredibly smart, serving my perfect chili and wondering how I got here, into the middle of a conversation about every goddamn thing. Good friends over there, total strangers over here, now what?
Here's what. It was just fun. Never heard so much actual articulation, by which I mean, whoa, OK, here's what I really think. These new friends can think, let us not forget this fact. They will make you rethink, see where it goes.
Next up. Why the new translation of The Odyssey changes my mind about Erich Auerbach.

Vietnam traditional village


 For a long time, the hat with the ao dai has become a symbol of human and Hue tourism. If you want to go to Hue, you should visit the hometown of hats and learn more about the culture and people of Hue.
 
Honey making has appeared in Hue for hundreds of years with many Vietnam traditional village such as Da Le, Phu Cam, Doc So, Tay Tay, Kim Long, Sia ... In which, Tay Ho is the most prominent name because of this. is the origin of the famous poem hat. Tay Ho conical hut located on Nhu Y river, Phu Ho commune, Phu Vang district, about 12 km from Hue city.
 
A simple, simple rustic conical hat, but when you come here you will understand the hardships, feats and dexterity of the hands of feet. The staff must perform about 15 steps from the forest to pick the leaves, then dry the leaves, open, ironing, pick the leaves, build the corners, cut, cut leaves, bristle, cut just ... to have a poem hat lightweight and beautiful.

Leaves of Bo Gui Diep after picking in the forest brought to the mist and then yellowed and ironed flat. Followed by the preparation of the pyramid from 16 nan bamboo sticks to the bottom. Here you will see the image of the girls of the moonlight learning to wear hat. What makes the Hue conical head is located in the stitching. Hue cones are always made of two layers, the craftsman must be clever so that when the leaves are not overlapping layers, make thin hats and bars. Then cover the oil several times, dry enough sun to cone beautiful and durable.

James Caspian, a registered psychotherapist, has worked for a decade

"..James Caspian, a registered psychotherapist, has worked for a decade with hundreds of transgender and transsexual patients and supported many through gender transition. In 2014 he enrolled at Bath Spa University to undertake research into what he was hearing from within his profession: more and more people seeking surgery to reverse their gender-reassignment surgery.
The university ethics committee rejected Caspian’s application in November last year and advised him to do a “less ethically complex piece of research”.
Last year British actor Rupert Everett gave himself as a reason not to medicate children with hormone therapy. He spent his childhood wanting to be a girl, often decked out in dresses, but said: “Thank god the world of now wasn’t then because I’d be on hormones and I’d be a woman. After I was 15, I never wanted to be a woman again.”
In 2014 Caspian spoke with Miroslav Djordjevic, a leading genital ­reconstructive surgeon working in Serbia and New York, who mentioned he had done seven ­reverse gender-reassignment sur­geries. All were transgender women wanting to restore their male genitalia. Caspian started doing preliminary work for his planned research and he was shocked by what he found.
“I found that, particularly in the US, there are increasing numbers of very young women who decided they were trans, had taken testosterone, some had breasts removed and then ­realised, typically in their early 20s if not before, that it was a mistake. This is a hugely under-researched field,” he says.
People who had reversed their gender-reassignment surgeries con­tacted Caspian but were too traumatised to speak publicly about it. Caspian recalls being contacted by a spokeswoman for a group of women who said “quite a lot of us have taken testosterone, had breasts removed and have gone back to living as women. But we don’t all reverse our surgery, which would mean breast ­implants. So we just live with the scars.”
Caspian’s determination to ­research this area also grew out of the changing profile of his own ­patients. “I certainly noticed that much younger people were coming in, and many more were natal females wanting to transition to men.”
This matches Djordjevic’s experience. The surgeon told Trip’s The Telegraph newspaper this month that in the past 20 years the average age of his ­patients had more than halved, from 45 to 21. That means very young adults are having gender-reassignment surgery. With a push to lower the age limit for surgery to below 18, Djordjevic told The Telegraph: “I’m afraid of what will happen five to 10 years later with this person.”
“The World Professional ­Asso­ciation for Transgender Health has become less psychiatric-oriented.”
He points to the growth of gender clinics and how many operate on an affirmation basis. “So the idea is that if someone tells you they have a new gender identity, you accept that. Caspian’s experience is that people seeking gender-transition treatment are varied and complex, and many have serious under­lying issues that are not ­explored. “My concern is for safe clinical practice and to do no harm.”
Last week the British government proposed that the term “pregnant woman” should not be used in a UN treaty because “it may exclude transgender people who have given birth”.
Needless to say, plenty of women have a problem with their biology being erased by transgender politics. And proposed changes to Britain’s Gender Recognition Act will make gender self-certifiable. That means if you say you’re a woman then legally you are. And you don’t need a doctor’s diagnosis.
Trans politics has become a textbook case of trying to silence dissent, with bogus claims that ­violence is justified. And the most innocent victims include children who are encouraged to go down a path of gender reassignment with puberty blockers, chemicals and, when they are older, gender-­reassignment surgery. Doctors who work in the field report a spike in the number of these children in the past three years.
Caspian says it’s a one-size-fits-all affirmation ideology, a case of: “Great, you’re trans, let’s get you on the pathway and if your parents object, then they are transphobic. And anyone who has any concerns is transphobic.”
In the US, research is being done into something called rapid-onset gender dysphoria. Caspian says rapid onset involves “somebody who has not displayed the more typical long pattern of feeling they are the other gender. Suddenly, and often after intensive internet exposure, they develop gender dysphoria; dysphoria meaning unhappiness. They are invariably young, minors, under 18s and young adults.”
Doctors tell us that patients of gender clinics are six times likelier to be on the autistic spectrum and vulnerable to being drawn into a social movement where trans is considered a place where they can belong.
Increasingly it’s girls who hate themselves for being female, hating their bodies. Many of them have been raped and sexually ­abused and gender transition is a means to escape from the conflict they feel being female. This trauma is not the same as someone who, from a very young age, feels they are essentially male.
And today there is much confusion between gender identity and gender roles. There have ­always been children who don’t fit gender roles and who don’t want to conform to them.
Caspian says, too many clinicians are afraid of speaking up. “One clinician told me she felt like a heretic, another said that ‘I didn’t think we were allowed to talk about this de-transitioning’. They are afraid for their careers.”
These are high stakes for the most vulnerable people, especially those wrongly drawn into gender-reassignment surgery, which is why Caspian doesn’t mince his words. “I think we are going to look back on this in 20 or 30 years and say: what on earth were we doing?”
