A Jewish Rapper's Response To The Nazi Who Hacked His Twitter

When a Nazi Internet Troll hacked Zachg's Twitter account, it was an attempt to deflate years of hard work building up to his third solo album release. The hacker meticulously went through his tweets to delete the ones pertaining to the upcoming album release and also went about blocking every one of the account's 2,000+ followers. Instead of letting that slow him down, Zachg moved forward launching his album and issued a near-perfect response. Reflecting on his experiences as a Jew in America decades apart, Zachg reminds us that the anti-Semitism, bigotry, and racially-tinged vitriol so apparent following the election of Donald "Cheeto Jesus" Trump are hardly new. The intro is quoted below, but head over to his blog to read the rest. Image by/courtesy of Zachg It's 1996. A 15 year old Jewish boy is sitting in a 10th grade chemistry class at Saint Thomas Aquinas, a private Catholic high school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He transferred to this school as a sophomore, and he is one of very few Jewish students. He smells gas amidst a lecture and, fearing a leak, he raises his hand. The teacher calls on him, "I smell gas Ms. Messenger." She doesn't miss a beat, "You're just afraid to get gassed like all the other Jews Zach!" The class laughs. He looks around but there are no sympathetic eyes. He sinks into his chair uncomfortable, uncertain why such a cruel reference to his dead family members is funny, and uncertain how to respond. It's 2016. A 35 year old Jewish man is sitting at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles appreciating the vast expanse of time that ties dinosaurs and humans to a shared space. He just released his 3rd official album, Whole Tushie. It's taken him 16 years to build his career as an independent musician and today is a day for him to celebrate his perseverance, appreciate who he has shaped himself to be, and reflect on his life. He watches as pockets of gas rise from the eons worth of decaying corpses below, and bubble up, sloshing the weird mix of water and muck in a deceptively banal display of celestial increments of time. He checks his email. His twitter password and email contact have been updated, but not by him. Over the next week he will receive anonymous messages and come to find out that anonymous internet nazis don't want him to rap, so they sabotaged his album release. He tries to take it in stride, but he stumbles, he is uncertain how to respond. Zachg told me over direct messages that he exchanged a few messages with the person who hacked his account. At first the hacker asked for $15 and promised to restore his account, but it quickly devolved into the hacker claiming Jews shouldn't rap and other vitriolic commentary. Zachg is working with Twitter to fully restore his account, but doesn't expect that to happen. So far he's back up to around 800 followers. And while he found Twitter responsive to the attack on his account, he also found the company lacked explicit accommodations for his situation. As Twitter ramps up its measures to deal with harassment, hate speech, and other problematic behaviors rampant on the platform, the company should also consider what mechanisms it can incorporate to protect users from hackers--and the wreckage they leave behind.

The Consequences of Egypt’s Potential Military Engagement in Syria

As ties between Cairo and Damascus strengthen, Syrian journalist Abdulrahman al-Masri explores the factors behind possible military cooperation between Egypt and Syria and the consequences this would have both locally and regionally. OTTAWA, CANADA – The Syrian regime-friendly newspaper As-Safir published an article on November 24 claiming that an Egyptian military unit had been deployed to Syria to provide logistical support to President Bashar al-Assad’s army. The report claimed that the Egyptian unit had been stationed at Hama Airbase in central Syria since November 12 and included 18 pilots, four of whom hold senior military ranks. An anonymous source quoted in the article added that an additional two generals from Egypt’s military chief command are now based in Damascus and are visiting battle front lines and holding military evaluation meetings. News of Egypt’s presence in Syria came only days after Egyptian president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi declared his country’s support for Assad’s military. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem later stated at a press conference in Damascus that Syrian-Egyptian relations are progressing, adding that only a “small jump remains for affairs to return to normal.” The As-Safir report created some confusion and controversy among observers who follow the region, prompting the Egyptian embassy in Beirut to issue a response. Ambassador Nazieh al-Najari denied claims of his country’s military involvement in Syria, but As-Safir issued a rebuttal, publishing an explanation confirming the accuracy of its source. On November 29, Russian news agency Sputnik also reported that a Syrian military source confirmed Egyptian participation, saying that the Syrian government welcomed the contribution from any Arab army to “counter terrorism in the Syrian territory.” Whether or not the report from As-Safir is accurate, it is only a matter of time before Egypt finalizes its alliances with Assad and Russia. The article’s author, Mohamed Ballout, a journalist with reportedly strong relations with the Syrian mukhabarat (intelligence agency), suggested that Egypt will likely increase its involvement in Syria beginning in January 2017. If Egypt does in fact engage militarily in Syria, it is likely that the major power dynamics in Syria and the region will be deeply disturbed. Syria-Egypt Relations Damascus and Cairo have maintained strong ties throughout the last 60 years, interrupted only during the Arab Spring in 2011, when popular uprisings protested military rule in both countries. When the Egyptian revolution succeeded in toppling then President Hosni Mubarak, the country’s ties to Assad remained severed, until the Egyptian military took the presidency and overthrew and imprisoned former president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood. Since Sisi was elected in 2014, Egypt’s policy on Syria has been diplomatic, rather than military, in favor of a political solution between the regime and the government. Egypt backs a group of Syrian opposition figures called the Cairo Conference Delegation, who are pushing Egypt to take on a leadership position in the region, and who seem to hold a more amenable stance towards Russia than the main opposition block backed by Turkey. Despite the recent rapprochement between the two countries, Sisi reasserted in an interview with Portuguese news outlet RTP last week that Egypt’s position remains “to respect the will of the Syrian people, and that a political solution to the Syrian crisis is the most suitable way.” But Egypt’s support of a political solution in Syria does not apply to counterterrorism, where Cairo’s “priority is to support national armies,” Sisi said. If Egypt officially announces that it will have a military role in Syria, it will likely present its support to Assad as a fight against ISIS. Similar to the approach taken by Russia, this would secure Egypt a spot on the negotiation table as a mediator and allow for an on-the-ground military presence, both of which would bolster Assad. Shifting Alliances Since Sisi took power, Egypt has been dependent on Saudi Arabia to survive economic hardships. The Saudi Kingdom has been generous with aid, loans and cheap oil. In return, Riyadh has expected loyalty from Cairo on regional issues, including trade, the conflicts in Syria and Yemen, and ongoing tensions with Iran. However, this symbiotic relationship has not flourished. Under the premise of its own economic challenges, Saudi cut off cheap oil shipments to Egypt and reduced aid, pushing Cairo to rethink its alliances and seek out new friends. While Egypt has received benefits from Saudi in recent years, it has also maintained warm ties with Russia. Russia has historically been friendly with Egypt, with a concord dating back to the Soviet era. Today, Russia is looking to reinvest in military-oriented regimes in the region, which makes Egypt a logical partner. Russia’s growing stature in the international community may have appealed to Sisi even more than the Saudi cash. From the Egyptian perspective, as long as ties with Saudi deteriorate, those with Russia should increase. Egypt benefits from Russian arms deals and now hosts joint military exercises. In terms of oil trade, Egypt will be able to access Iran’s and Iraq’s oil as a substitute after Saudi suspension. All of these factors will influence Egypt’s decision to engage in Syria, even if it means surrounding itself with Saudi’s enemies. The war in Syria has upset the regional order, and as a result, Egypt’s role is shifting. Egypt is increasingly gaining international support, which is likely to increase once U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, whose focus in Syria is on defeating ISIS, assumes office. With international backing, Egypt is on a path to holding the position of a “stabilizing force” in the region, like it has in the past. What’s In It for Assad? Assad continues to benefit from foreign nations competing for power in Syria. With the support his forces received from Russia, Iran, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Iraqi militias, he was able to establish a new balance of power on the ground in Syria, particularly against armed opposition. The addition of Egyptian forces would mean more than just military aid; it would translate into further international consensus for his rule and a blow to the regional camp that supports the Syrian opposition. With Trump in the White House, this pro-Assad, Russia-oriented camp in the Middle East could have the potential to grow. The Syrian opposition will face a nearly insurmountable force, unless regional powers such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, along with European nations, find a way to counter Russia’s mounting influence. Cairo is eager to expand its clout in the region, a move that will result in increasing international competition in the Middle East, as foreign powers reinforce their positions and alliances. Egypt’s potential participation on behalf of Assad in the war in Syria will only prompt the opposition’s foreign allies to increase their military involvement. Regardless of what side they are fighting for, introducing new foreign armies to the conflict will only have tragic results for Syrian civilians. This article originally appeared on Syria Deeply.

Ты прибыл сюда как в кошмар, молясь о том, чтоб забыться.

ООО, это было непросто.Даже читать это невыносимо тяжело, не говоря уж чтобы привести в относительно читабельный вид гугл-переводНе пришлось задумываться только над первым стихотворением.Оно собственно и подсказка)Что объединяет следующие четыре поэмы?Осторожно не для слабонервных:Страна уже принадлежала нам, А мы ей нет. Мы ею обладали, Не став ее народом. Весь восток Уж век был наш, а мы... мы оставались Английскими и, только колонисты, Владели тем, что нами не владело, Во власти у того, что потеряли. Мы всё искали, где же наша слабость, Пока не поняли, что отделили Себя от той земли, где мы живем, И отдались ей, и нашли спасенье. Мы уступили раз и навсегда, Не побоявшись воевать за это, Стране, туманно охватившей запад, Где всё: народ, история, искусства - Всё предстояло, в ней одной теперь.=====================(чуть-чуть подкорректированный гугл-перевод)Скала, Река и Дерево От тех, кто давно ушел,На них омертвевшие знаки:Различных древних существ, Шагавших по нашей планете,Но сгинувших в сумрак веков,Не справившись с тревогойУскорившей их уход.Но ныне взывает Скала к намРешительно и ясно:"Приди, поднимись на меняВглядись в своё назначениеИщи, но не прячься в тени,Сгустившейся у подножья,Внизу не создашь укрытия Ты создал намного меньшеТех ангелов, что притихли,Укрылись лишь ненадолгоНо сумрак их успокоилНадолго лишив движеньяЗаставив застыть в равнодушие.Твой рот источает слова,Заточенные на убой.Скала к нам сегодня взывает:"Ты можешь стоять надо мной,Но только не прячь лицаВзгляни через стену мираРека там поёт свою песню,К себе всех оставшихся манит:"Каждый из вас как страна, Которую терпеливо и нежно Учили быть гордойИ окружили границейНо вы всё равно под осадойИ в вечной борьбе за прибыль.Мой берег усеян хламом,Но я все равно приглашаюК себе, если ты научился Прожить эту жизнь, не воюяПриди сюда с миром и слушайЯ буду петь тебе песни,Которые наш СоздательВдохнул в нас, когда мы едиными С деревьями, скалами были.Пред тем, как твой ум пропиталсяЦинизмом и знаньем ложным,Незнанью аналогичным.Так пела река и пелаСлова той реки поющейИ мудрой скалы поведайЕврею, испанцу, азиатуАфриканцу и коренному американцу сиуКатолику, мусульманину, французу, греку, Ирландцу, раввину, священнику, шейхуГею, гетеросексуалуСвященнику и учителюБездомному и именитомуОни услышат, все услышатО том, что сказало Дерево.There is a true yearning to respond toThe singing river and the wise rock.So say the Asian, the Hispanic, the Jew,The African and Native American, the Sioux,The Catholic, the Muslim, the French, the Greek,The Irish, the Rabbi, the Priest, the Sheikh,The Gay, the Straight, the Preacher,The privileged, the homeless, the teacher.They hear.

Серебристые грузовики, наполненные нефтью или бумагой, кирпичами или молоком, кишащие на магистралях, около нас, на нашем пути на работу, Мы будем там чистить столы, читать бухгалтерские книги спасать чьи-то жизни, обучать геометрии или пробивать продукты, как это делала моя мать в течение двадцати лет, чтобы я смог написать это стихотворение для всех вас сегодня.Всех нас, таких же полных жизни, как тот единый свет, что мы пропускаем сквозь себя, тот же свет, что падает на школьные доски с заданиями на сегодня: уравнения, чтобы их решать, история, чтобы задавать вопросы, или атомы, чтобы их представлять, строчка «Я мечтаю о…», которую мы до сих пор храним в себе, или неподъёмный словарь печали, который не объяснит нам, почему опустели парты двадцати ребятишек, отмеченных отсутствующими сегодня и навсегда**. Много молитв, но один свет с разноцветным дыханием в запятнанных окнах, жизнью в лицах бронзовых статуй, теплотой в шагах по нашим музеям, возле скамеек в парках, где мамаши присматривают за своими детьми, скользящими в разгар дня.Одна земля. Наша земля, привязывающая нас к каждому стебельку, к каждому колоску пшеницы, что тяжким трудом посажен руками, теми руками, что собирают уголь или строят мельницы в пустынях и на вершинах гор, чтобы нам было тепло, руками, что роют траншеи, прокладывают трубы и кабель, руками, такими же тёплыми, как руки моего отца, срезающие сахарный тростник, чтобы я и мой брат могли иметь книги и обувь.Вся пыль, лежащая на фермах, в пустынях, городах и прериях, смешанная с единым ветром, – это наше дыхание. Дыши. Слушай дыхание сквозь ежедневное яркое гудение такси, автобусов, катящихся по проспектам, симфонию шагов, гитар, визжание вагонов метро, неожиданную песню птицы, севшую на верёвку для сушки белья.Слушай: скрип качелей на детской площадке, свист поездов или шёпот за столиком в кафе, слушай: двери, которые мы открываем для каждого, чтобы сказать: хэллоу, шалом, бон джорно, как дела, намасте или буэнос диас, на том языке, что учила меня мать – на каждом языке, издающемся в едином ветре, что несёт наши жизни без предубеждения, как эти слова, сорвавшиеся с моих губ.Одно небо: с тех пор как Аппалачи и Сьерра-Невада заявили о своём величии, а Миссисипи и Колорадо проложили себе дорогу к морю. Благодари старания наших рук: заливать сталь в мосты, во время сдавать ещё один отчёт для босса, зашивать ещё одну рану или униформу, сделать первый мазок кистью на портрете или последний этаж Башни Свободы, выпирающей в небо, которое уступает перед нашей несгибаемостью.Одно небо, на которое мы изредка поднимаем наши глаза, уставшие от работы: иногда, чтобы догадаться о предстоящей погоде, иногда, чтобы поблагодарить за любовь, что отвечает нам взаимностью, иногда, чтобы воспеть свою маму, которая умела жертвовать, или чтобы простить отца, который не мог дать нам то, чего мы хотели.Мы управляем нашим домом: сквозь блеск дождя или тяжесть снега, или сквозь сливовый багрянец сумерек, но всегда, всегда – домом, всегда под единым небом, нашим небом. И всегда одна луна, как тихий барабан, стучащий по каждой крыше и каждому окну единой страны, всех нас, глядящих на звёзды с надеждой встретить новое созвездие, ожидающее нас, чтобы мы нанесли его на карту, ожидающее нас, чтобы мы подарили ему имя, все вместе. We have memorized America, how it was born and who we have been and where. In ceremonies and silence we say the words, telling the stories, singing the old songs. We like the places they take us. Mostly we do. The great and all the anonymous dead are there. We know the sound of all the sounds we brought. The rich taste of it is on our tongues. But where are we going to be, and why, and who? The disenfranchised dead want to know. We mean to be the people we meant to be, to keep on going where we meant to go. But how do we FASHION the future? Who can say how except in the minds of those who will call it Now? The children. The children. And how does our garden grow? With waving hands—oh, rarely in a row— and flowering faces. And brambles, that we can no longer allow. Who were many people coming together cannot become one people falling apart. Who dreamed for every child an even chance cannot let luck alone turn doorknobs or not. Whose law was never so much of the hand as the head cannot let chaos make its way to the heart. Who have seen learning struggle from teacher to child cannot let ignorance spread itself like rot. We know what we have done and what we have said, and how we have grown, degree by slow degree, believing ourselves toward all we have tried to become— just and compassionate, equal, able, and free. All this in the hands of children, eyes already set on a land we never can visit—it isn’t there yet— but looking through their eyes, we can see what our long GIFT to them may come to be. If we can truly remember, they will not forget.

What is Personal Branding? Why you should seriously consider investing in it!

Do you know that you are a brand that needs some investment? Sure enough, most of us associate the term 'branding' with the corporate world, overlooking the potential it has to change our individual lives. There is more to branding than just companies selling products. Every human being is a brand in themselves. Martha Stewart is one of the many people who realized their personal brand at a young age, and then worked hard to build a business around it. Born to middle-class parents who taught her skills like sewing, cooking, tin-packing and gardening, Martha went on to become a pioneer in the lifestyle, DIY and cooking business industry. Martha Stewart, Mark Cuban, Richard Branson and many others have built a personal brand. You can also evolve as the president of your personal brand. But first, you need to know what personal branding is: The personal brand experience is your opportunity to learn more about yourself so you can identify your unique skills, strengths, and talents. Many times you do not cultivate your personal brand, but it still exists. It's time for you to explore. Gone are the days when people stayed at one job for 15-20 years. Baby Boomers average 11.6 jobs over their working lives and Millenials can expect even greater volatility. The digital footprint is a very important contribution to a personal brand. Digital footprint is what you do online. If you or someone comments or posts about you online, it will become your digital footprint. An AVG study suggests that children under the age of 2 already have a digital footprint. In the increasingly digital world of today, the question is no longer if you should have a personal brand, but if you cultivate and nurture it to build something meaningful. If you want to establish a personal brand, here are a few things you need to do: Think of yourself as a brand Do you want to be known as a key influencer in a field, just like Martha Stewart? Point out the topics that interest you and can grow into passions. Once you realize the field in which you can be an expert, you will find yourself paying more attention to it. Pro tip - do not try to become someone you are not. Be true to yourself. Only then, can you grow and develop a strategy to reach out and help people with your knowledge. Speak to people If you wish to build your brand, seek opportunities to speak at places where you can offer your expertise. You can record your own webinars as well. You should be speaking on a regular basis. It will develop your communication skills, teach you how to interact with an audience and make you more confident about what you aspire to do. Getting tips from influential speakers is good, but don't imitate anyone. It is inevitable that some people will criticize you and your judgement. Take any criticism cautiously but don't get disheartened. You should have a story that can connect you with people. Michael Margolis, Dean of Story University says, "Remember, you are not born a superhero. Superheroes are created based on circumstances and choices." When you tell your story, don't talk about the harsh phases of your life. Talk about the times when you were brave. Success guru Ben Burchard has a few tips to give on crafting your own superhero story: Woe to Win - when you were down and out, you came back. Finding or stumbling upon the magic bullet - and everything changed. David versus goliath - when were you the underdog? The tough choice -- the other choice would've been easier, but this choice made you a better person. The switch from victim to victor -- everyone has that story. The switch from self-absorbed to service-minded - when was that point for you? Family play - when did you decide that your family was important, and how did you sacrifice for them? The no-one-believed-I-could-do-it story. The experience epic - 2-4 years of crap and then you came out of it a winner. The turnaround -- when you finally decided to pursue something super meaningful. Buy your own domain Buying your own dot com is not just a necessity for your personal brand, it can also put your name on top of the search engines. If you have a fairly common name, you can use your middle or last name and even make a brand name that is unique to yourself. Your own domain is like online real estate. If you want to have a say, you need to have a place on the internet. Your website doesn't have to be very complex. It can have a few pages, along with your updated resume and a brief bio about what you do. Alex Baackes built her travel blogging brand from this beautiful website, which is unique to her. As you can see, she uses a few colors on her website, and also has a logo. If you explore the site, you will find the logo everywhere, which shows her credibility and worth. The website should provide a positive image of you to a reader who visits first time. Robby Leonardi is a graphic designer who got successful from his online presence. His website is a top-notch example of his work. Not all of us can make websites like these, but considering the nature of Robby's work, the site interface acts as his virtual portfolio and resume. Write about your expertise Write about your experiences on your website. It can be a diary version, or a professional expertise column. When you write leadership articles, it projects your image as a credible person. When you write thoughtful stuff, it can also get you media attention and people start taking you seriously. At this point, you can either hire professional services to do a bit of visual content for your site, or you can learn to do some photo editing so that the site doesn't look boring and uninteresting. Your website is your place, so try not to upload stock photos too often. Stock photos don't always give a good impression. If you can, take your own photos and customize them for your website. Upload a professional-looking photo of yourself on the site, since the absence of your own photo can also make your site look unoccupied. Build an online presence You have to be on social media and contribute to online discussions. It is not an option anymore. Blog: It is optional to make a blog, if you already have a running site. But, if the website is your professional portfolio, then make a personal blog and post personal experiences over there to make your readers a part of your journey. When you keep posting, your blog will jump naturally get higher rankings too. Twitter: Create a Twitter account with a photo of yourself. No Twitter photo means anonymity, which you can't afford in building your personal brand. Use either your name, or a brand name that explains what you do. Upload your site URL on the profile. Follow people who are related or interested in your niche. Post daily and don't forget to interact with people who reply to your tweets. This will make your profile look professional. Facebook: Create a Facebook profile. It should have a photo, preferably the one you use on your Twitter. Update your work history and projects. Facebook is a great place to engage with like-minded people and promote yourself. Invite your friends and family to your profile and engage with them. If you want your Facebook profile to be private, then make a Facebook page. LinkedIn: LinkedIn is a tool every business-oriented person should use. It is a network of professionals. LinkedIn acts as a digital version of your resume and work history. Don't be without a LinkedIn profile. You can join groups that have the same interests and can find new job opportunity by meeting new professionals. Quora: Quora has established itself as a great platform for people who like to help each other. People ask questions on Quora and get answers by other Quora users. Invest your time to answer questions related to your niche. It will bring people to your other social profiles and give an impression of professionalism. Quora will help you get your name out there, which is beneficial. Instagram: Instagram is a platform to share photos, but you can personalize your profile according to your interests and attract new people. You can upload your logo or your photo on the profile and post photos that can be illustrations, product images or inspirational stuff. Keep learning about your niche Always be a student of your industry. Things are changing faster than ever, and to keep up, you have to constantly be aware. It will take you time and consistency to build a personal brand. What's the use if you don't stay relevant to the trends and then defend yourself by blaming changing times? Adapt to changes and devise a new strategy to keep up. Learning a new way of doing the things you already do can open new possibilities of business. Even if you have a USP, people might take you for granted. You can merge both your work and your business together to prove that you are strong. Customers can't relate to a clothing brand on its own, but if the owner of the brand reaches out to them, it will be more influential for business. Often, we trust our friend or family's opinion about a brand more than what the storekeeper says. If you are sensible, you already know the importance of staying updated, but a reminder never hurts anyone. Create value and stand out of the crowd Nobody wants to know what you ate for breakfast, unless you are an A-list celeb. However, people notice when you post things of value. A photo with your dog, a reminder of the blessings in life or a how-to post on your niche grabs the attention of readers. When you create value, you get noticed. People can differentiate you from others in the field, and if you are unique, media brings you into the spotlight. Refrain from online spats that bring out the worst in you. Online world is full of people who want to derail others for no particular reason. Make sure they don't affect your rhythm. Remind yourself of your story and stay relevant. A strong brand is robust and ever-evolving. Don't be shy and build a network around your brand. Takeaways: Once you are set on the path to creating your personal brand, don't give up mid-way. Consistency is the key to the success of any business. Manage Google Alerts and keep auditing your online presence every now and then. If you see something harmful related to your name, try to get it removed. Don't lie about your journey, and provide your followers with new and genuine bits of information often. It's not only limited to online presence. When you step out, be nice to people you meet and introduce yourself in a professional way. You should look like you can be approached and show yourself as a nice person to talk to. These very simple habits can polish your personal brand and people online and offline will endorse you as a great brand. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Law Firm Offering Free Legal Advice To Electors Who Don't Want To Vote For Trump

WASHINGTON ― A new organization is offering pro bono legal assistance to any Electoral College member who decides to break with the will of the people in his or her state, in hopes of derailing President-elect Donald Trump before he is sworn in. The vote to determine who will become president is set to take place on Dec. 19. Christopher Suprun, a paramedic who lives in Texas and is one of the 538 members of the Electoral College, announced this week that he will not cast his vote for the president-elect.  Larry Lessig, a Harvard Law School professor heading the project, told The Huffington Post that the law firm Durie Tangri handles intake and may wind up representing Suprun. Durie Tangri generally plans to offer confidential advice to anonymous electors, but Lessing said Suprun’s case was different.  “He came to us just as he published his piece in the Times,” he said. “Our assumption is we’re talking to people who want to be anonymous, so he’s an exception. The whole community is going to step in and do what they can to help him.” Lessig, who has been a prolific online fundraiser in the past, said his group is raising funds in addition to counting on some substantial early commitments. “The motivation was the recognition that there were going to be a lot of electors who were considering what we believe is their constitutional right, to vote their conscience. Whether it makes sense to do it depends on who else is doing it,” Lessig said, adding that Durie Tangri would be willing to tell electors how many other electors had committed to voting against Trump. The law firm also plans to partner with groups doing work on the ground. Trump needs 270 electors to support him when they gather in state capitals around the country later this month. He won enough states to give him the support of 306, so anti-Trump forces need to persuade 36 more electors. That effort is underway, with Ohio Gov. John Kasich being named as a potential alternative. Trump annihilated Kasich in the Republican primary. The Electoral College itself is weighted toward conservative, rural areas of the country. Each state is granted a number of electors that equals how many senators they have plus how many House representatives they have. But senators are not apportioned by population ― rather, each state gets two. That means California, which has a population nearly 70 times larger than that of Wyoming, has only 18.3 times as many electors ― 55 to 3. Trump’s Electoral College win, though, was sizable enough that it would survive readjusting for population, although it would be much narrower. It would not survive, however, if the election were decided by the popular vote, which Clinton currently leads by more than 2.5 million. (A coalition of public interest groups is calling for a fix to the Electoral College with a massive petition, which you can find here.) The American system of government was established to be reflective of the will of population, but with a series of buffers to guard against mob rule. A myriad of layers were put between the people and the outcome of elections. Until a constitutional amendment, senators were elected not by a statewide vote, but by state legislatures. And up until fairly recently, parties chose presidential nominees at a convention without primaries or caucuses playing a significant role. The Iowa caucus, which feels like something created by the Founding Fathers, didn’t start until 1972. Over the years, the system has extended the franchise from white, male property owners to all citizens older than 18 (except, importantly, convicted felons in many states). Some states bind electors to vote for the candidate their state chose, but others only require a pledge. Lessig said the state laws that set up a legal requirement are clearly unconstitutional, citing the controlling 1952 Supreme Court case Ray v. Blair. “No one faithful to our history can deny that the plan originally contemplated, what is implicit in its text, that electors would be free agents, to exercise an independent and nonpartisan judgment as to the men best qualified for the Nation’s highest offices,” Justice Robert Jackson wrote in that case. That doesn’t mean it can be a flimsy reason, Lessig said. “If you’re an elector, you have to give a moral justification for deviating from a pledge you made. There has to be an overwhelmingly strong reason,” he said.

8 Tips for Building Self-Confidence

Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit. - E.E. Cummings A few months ago we published a very successful article on Conveying Self-Confidence - Fake It Till You Make It. One question that came back over and over was: How can I convey something I don't have to begin with? Faking it till making it didn't seem to fly with some readers. Today, we'll explore 8 proven methods for actually building self-confidence. 1) Do More Things You're Good At or Improve At Things You're Not For many of us, self-esteem comes from being really good at something -- anything. Someone who is an exceptional shoe-shiner can derive great pride in his work -- more than a really incompetent surgeon. When we do something well, we feel great about it. Even if no one is looking. Alternately, making major improvements at something we are not good at, teaches us that our effort can really impact our capabilities which is a huge confidence booster. 2) Commit Esteemable Acts Both Large and Small When we do good things for others, we tend to build our self-esteem. Little things like opening doors for strangers can leave you feeling good all day. Regularly volunteering with an at-risk youth organization or another type of non-profit can help you feel great for months. All just from being of service to others. Volunteer Match is a great website that matches good people with good causes based on what you care about and your location. 3) Live in Alignment with Your Values When we live outside of our values or are not authentic with ourselves, we begin to question our own worth. Guilt and shame are powerful emotions, and they most often come from doing things we don't feel right about. Check out this amazing video Ted Talk by Brene Brown that went viral with over 6 million views. Are you not being transparent with someone you love? Or are you working for a company you don't believe in? 4) Inhabit What Feels Like Your Native Environment In its native habitat, a redwood will grow over 300 feet tall. In the desert, it won't grow an inch. Environment is everything. Sometimes no matter how hard we try to assimilate, if we are in the wrong job, company or industry we will always feel uncomfortable -- like something is just off. Without the right environment or ecosystem, we try to adapt, but always feel just a little out of place. This anonymous quote states it pretty well, "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid." 5) Dress the Part This may seem superficial, but dressing well and looking the part can do wonders for your self-confidence. You know when you look great. And you also know when you look like sh*t. But don't overdo it. Obsessing about your looks too much can drain you and is apparent to others. While this might involve some conformity to your environment, the key is doing this in a way where you are most comfortable in your own skin (or in this case, clothes). 6) Reframe the Negative Things You Say About Yourself You spend more time with yourself than with anyone else, so if you're talking down to yourself all the time, you will feel down. We all have old stories we tell ourselves about who we are, what our limitations are, etc. And most of them are bogus. If you want to know what your greatest strength is, look at what you think your greatest weakness is -- your gifts bloom in the vacuum your weaknesses create. Another trick is to treat yourself as you would treat your best friend. Meaning think about your self-talk and inner critic, would you ever say that to your best friend? The answer is probably not. Check out ways to improve your mood and give yourself a boost. 7) Celebrate the Small Wins We all have big dreams. But we get there through a series of failures and small wins. Want to start a company? Pitch it to your friends first. Want to climb Mt. Everest? Start with a much smaller mountain first. Want to run a marathon? Run a half-marathon or a 5K first. You get the idea. By setting and attaining small goals, we build the confidence we need to take on bigger challenges. Every huge feat is just a series of smaller accomplishments, similar to taking baby steps. By breaking down big tasks into small ones you can achieve more than you ever thought possible. 8) Ignore the Haters There will always be haters who try to knock you down. People who say negative things, look at your askance, talk about you behind your back. Ignore those people because they are haters. They are only expressing their own lack of self-confidence by trying to tear down yours. Instead of letting them get in your head, learn how to deal with them. Because only people who are hurting, try to hurt other people. It is also a sign that you are doing something notable. People don't bother hating on those that have no impact. Practice these 8 Tips for Building Self-Confidence and you'll be well on your way. If you liked this article please recommend and/or share it.

REWRITING THE NARRATIVE OF YOUR LIFE

"We tell ourselves stories in order to live ... We live entirely by the imposition of a narrative upon disparate images, by the "ideas" which we have learned to freeze the shifting phantasmagoria which is our actual experience." I was struck this week by this quote from Joan Didion's book The White Album. Whether we realize it or not, we all impose a narrative on our lives. But I want to relate this thought to the one which I explored in my previous blog - Walt Whitman's "Do I contradict myself? Very well, I contradict myself. (I am large, I contain multitudes)." We are very different in different contexts - as a son or daughter, a lover, a friend, a boss or an employee, a football player, and so on. Last time I focussed on three points - how we are different with different people, in different organizations, and depending on the place we live. The punch line was obvious yet rarely followed - spend our time with the people, in the job, and in the town that give us pleasure and where we feel useful. This time I want to apply the same framework to the story of our lives. We habitually think of ourselves in particular ways, and we invent a story, as Joan Didion says, which edits and invariably distorts the true narrative of our lives, which indeed "contains multitudes". For example, if I met you for the first time, perhaps on a date, I might ask, "What sort of person are you?" You would reel off a list of adjectives or descriptions, and if you liked me, you would probably skew them towards attributes you thought I found attractive. But if I was interviewing you for a job, your list of qualities would probably be quite different. Imagine you are alone, thinking quietly about yourself and your life. You ask yourself the same question, "What sort of person am I?" The list of attributes will probably be different again. And if you repeated the process a month later, you might come up with a significantly different list, depending on your mood, whether someone had recently complimented you, and the kind of day you'd just had at work. So let's play this little game. Make a list of your most salient characteristics and activities. For example, My list might include "impatient, demanding, impulsive, affectionate, bloody-minded, independent, intellectual, investor, writer, speaker". Write a long list, about twenty different attributes or important aspects of your life. Then pop each of these attributes into the framework below, according to which box it most neatly falls into: Now set your "box" with the words written in to one side. Here's a subversive thought for you - you don't have to be the person you think you are. Or to put it two other ways - you are allowed to change the narrative of your life. Imagine the person you would like to be and start acting as if you were that person. So take the attributes that are in Box A and imagine that these are the central and predominant attributes that you have. Even more revolutionary, write into Box A new attributes that fit that box - that are attractive to you and useful to yourself and other people - that you want to have, and could (just about) imagine having. Then pretend you have those attributes, or try out having them. In his marvellous book Strangers to Ourselves, Timothy Wilson tells the rather touching story of Marcia Muller, an unemployed and timid woman who wanted to change herself - and become an author. So she invented a fictional heroine who was quite different from herself. She called her Sharon McCone and fashioned her thus: "She was taller, thinner and braver than I. She commanded an amazing variety of skills - marksmanship, judo, bread making, automotive repair - while I could barely type. She would go anywhere, safe or dangerous, and ask anyone questions, while I had been known to become nervous when dialing the phone for the correct time." Muller modelled herself on her creation - "I didn't grow taller, but I did lose weight and become braver ... I was definitely more confident. During research for subsequent novels, I would learn to walks into places safe or dangerous and ask anyone questions." This is not an isolated case. The detective thriller writer Sue Grafton crafted a similar experience. She started as a hospital receptionist who hated her job. So she conjured up private investigator Kinsey Milhone, a brassy, dominant, profane private investigator - and started to assume aspects of her character. Aristotle said that we acquire virtues "by first having put them into action"; "we become just by the practice of just actions." It might not come naturally, but do it anyway, and you can become what you want to become - in the mantra of Alcoholics Anonymous, "fake it till you make it". Now we have the blessing of psychology to confirm such advice. As Timothy Wilson says, "one of the most enduring lessons of social psychology is that behaviour change often precedes changes in attitudes and feelings". This fits in with Walt Whitman's view that we are large; we contain multitudes. There is an almost infinite number of narratives we could construct about ourselves. Because there is no real truth about who we are inherently, we can construct the truth we want. The act of defining our future self can become self-fulfilling. The way this seems to operate is through our unconscious mind finding every opportunity to put such opportunities in our path, and encouraging us to make our actions congruent with our rather starry-eyed view of who we are. This makes the definition of our desirable self and our future narrative acts of enormous importance. There is just one final thing to say. The unconscious mind will not create a characteristic, or realize a goal, unless we believe that it is possible to have the attribute or reach the goal. It is no use a grown woman who is short of stature aspiring to be six foot six, and it is futile for me to think that I can become a Wimbledon champion. There are some limits to what we can believe and make happen. Yet there is an enormous range of outcomes that can be believed and attained, and we might as well reach for the highest level within that range. Action Implications Decide which attributes - falling into Box A - you want to describe you. Create a fictional hero resembling you but with the attributes. Hand-write the attributes and a character sketch of the hero in a notebook, which you keep prominently displayed on a desk at home or work. Read the attributes and the sketch of the hero to yourself at the same time every day. Take the first opportunity to act like the hero. One month after you start, write in your notebook what you - your heroic alter ego - is going to achieve in the next 5-10 years. Review this daily along with your ideal attributes. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

‘The culture was seedy’: the boys club at the heart of north-east football abuse scandal

Montagu and North Fenham boys club has a proud history of developing players but has also been exposed as a place where two men later convicted of child sex abuse crimes were involved for yearsThe Montagu and North Fenham football club has a proud status in the game’s heartland of Newcastle, formed in 1948, with 70 coaches today running 31 boys’ and girls’ teams, playing to a high standard which has nurtured several outstanding alumni. Yet as the enormous scale of past sexual abuse in the sport has begun to emerge over the last fortnight from years of suffering and silence, this home of football in the west end of Newcastle has been exposed as one of the clubs which was targeted for decades.The Guardian now understands that two men who were later convicted of child sex abuse crimes were involved at the club for years, with complete access to the boys. Last week the former “Monty’s” midfielder, Derek Bell, who progressed to sign as a professional for Newcastle United in 1979, finally waived his anonymity to talk about the “horrendous” abuse he was subjected to over four years before that by his former coach at the boys club, George Ormond. Principally on Bell’s evidence, Ormond was convicted in 2002 and sentenced to six years in prison for 12 indecent assaults on seven boys committed between 1975 and 1999. Continue reading...

Lessig, lawyers to offer support to anti-Trump electors

A prominent Harvard University law professor is teaming with a California-based law firm to offer legal support for any members of the Electoral College seeking to oppose President-elect Donald Trump in violation of state law.Larry Lessig says his new effort, which he calls “The Electors Trust,” will provide free counsel to electors, provided by the midsize firm, Durie Tangri, whose partner Mark Lemley is a longtime associate of Lessig’s.More significantly, Lessig said, the Trust will offer a platform – with guaranteed anonymity – for electors to strategize about stopping Trump from taking the White House. It’s a platform, he said, that could help electors coordinate to determine whether they’ve gathered enough support to stop Trump from winning the presidency.“It makes no sense to be elector number five who comes out against Trump. But it might make sense to be elector 38,” Lessig said in a phone interview.Lessig’s announcement, shared with POLITICO on the eve of the launch, comes as the first Republican member of the Electoral College has publicly declared his opposition to Trump. The elector, Chris Suprun of Texas, published an op-ed in The New York Times to announce his intentions to vote against Trump when the 538 members of the Electoral College cast the official vote for president on Dec. 19.The announcement has buoyed a team of at least eight Democratic electors – based in Colorado and Washington – that has been working to lobby their Republican counterparts to reject Trump and instead support an alternative Republican candidate. On Monday, those electors signaled they were likely to select Ohio Gov. John Kasich as that alternative – and Suprun, in his op-ed, expressed the same preference.The Democrats leading the effort, who have dubbed themselves “Hamilton Electors,” have argued that the emergence of the first committed Republican elector to reject Trump would embolden others to break from the Republican nominee. Their goal is to convince at least 36 other Republicans to oppose Trump, the minimum they need to block Trump’s election and send it to the House of Representatives.On Dec. 19, Electoral College members will meet in their respective state capitals and cast the only constitutionally valid vote for president. Trump won the popular vote in states that include 306 electoral votes, and if all of them support him, well above the 270-vote threshold. That’s why anti-Trump electors are working to persuade 37 Republican electors to oppose Trump.To bolster their effort, a team of lawyers backing the Hamilton Electors are preparing a wave of legal challenges intended to overturn laws in 29 states that purport to bind electors to their party’s nominee. But many constitutional scholars believe those laws – which have never been tested or enforced – run counter to the Founders’ conception of the Electoral College as a deliberative body.

Trump’s ‘Who Wants To Be A Secretary Of State?’ Enters Third Week

WASHINGTON – For fans disappointed that Donald Trump no longer hosts “The Apprentice,” here’s good news: The president-elect will continue a real-life version of his series over the coming days or even weeks. “Apprentice, Secretary of State Edition” is already in its third week, with fresh contestants apparently still being added to the mix – and with no clear date yet for the big finale when the cabinet’s most prestigious job gets filled. “He actually is choosing his apprentice at this point,” said Seth Grossman, a producer of series like “Big Fish Texas” and “Hollywood Hillbillies.” “We are now thinking about this in terms of a reality show rather than thinking about the policy implications.” Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, told reporters Sunday that the search was, indeed, widening beyond the four “finalists” the campaign had talked about. “That list is expanding because at the moment, there are no, there is not a finite list of finalists only because he will interview with additional candidates early this week,” she said. “More than four but who knows how many finalists there will be. It’s a big decision and nobody should rush through it.” That was just days after spokesman Jason Miller told reporters that Trump was down to four choices. Miller actually named former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, while numerous published reporters mentioned Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker and retired Army Gen. David Petraeus. “The secretary of state position has been narrowed down to four potential candidates,” Miller said. But now, Trump plans to meet with Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson on Tuesday and former NATO Commander James Stavridis – who actually was being considered as a running mate for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton – on Thursday. Other names reportedly under consideration: former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin. All of which raises questions about Romney, the biggest and most unlikely name to date to emerge as a candidate for Trump’s cabinet. Romney not only opposed Trump during the Republican primaries, he was also among the most outspoken Republicans to denounce Trump as wholly unqualified for the presidency. Romney nevertheless made a visit to Trump’s golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, last month, spending nearly an hour and a half meeting with Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence. Two weeks later, he journeyed to New York to dine with Trump and incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. The menu included frogs’ legs soup, and photos from the meeting showed Romney’s tight smile. Ryan Williams, an aide to Romney during his unsuccessful 2012 White House run, was glad to see his former boss work for the greater good of the country, even if it meant setting aside his differences with Trump. On Monday, Williams wasn’t sure what to make of the latest turn. “I don’t think anyone really knows what’s going on,” he said. Other Romney aides have suspected all along that Trump is more interested in humiliating Romney by subjecting him to a very public courting process before ultimately choosing someone else. One prominent GOP consultant, not a former Romney aide, said that it seemed like Trump is at this point intentionally stringing things out. “If you wanted to torment Mitt Romney, what would do it more than this?” he said on condition of anonymity to criticize the incoming president from his party. The consultant added that he wouldn’t be at all surprised if, in the end, the job goes to either Romney or Huntsman – because of their looks. “That’s the only criteria we know of from Trump himself, right? That you look like a secretary of state?” he said. Grossman, the reality TV show producer, said he also wouldn’t be surprised if it’s Romney – one, because it makes Trump seem magnanimous for even considering him, and, two, it would let him send Romney all over the world on errands that Trump doesn’t want to do himself. “He’s a famously vindictive person, so he’s thinking it would be great to have this person under my thumb for a few years,” Grossman said of Trump. “He’s a simple person to understand, but we all want to see what he’s going to do next.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Website Raising Money To Fund Assassinations Of Trump, Pence Uncovered On "Dark Web"

A website hosted on the Dark Web claims to be asking for Bitcoin donations and "expert advice" to help fund the assassinations of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence.  According to CSO, which first uncovered the "murder-for-hire" site, the darknet portal went live last week and calls for assistance to fund an assassination attempt against Trump, and features an image of the president-elect in crosshairs. The website is located on the Dark Web, and can be accessed only using the Tor browser, which masks IP addresses. "As you are all well aware, the consequences of having Donald Trump and Mike Pence as the leaders of the free world is extremely dangerous," reads a statement on the "murder-for-hire" website. "The political, environmental and social consequences will change the United States for the worst." Pointing to the “rise of several white supremacist movements like the KKK and the neo-nazis,” the site promoting assassination says “trying to eliminate other Americans of different origins cannot be tolerated.” It adds that “we, as a society have come too far to go back to this." The site’s administrators claim they are part of a “well-known organization that has always defended and protected the rights of all people against crooked governments and regimes using different cyber attacks.” It adds that it now needs to go further, “as it will require much more than cyber attack to defend ourselves to avoid civil war or another world war.” “We have several assets in different branches of government, security and even some working in secret services,” it claims. That's when the solicitation for funds kicks in: "Unfortunately, the plan we need to implement requires a lot of money to pay for equipment, bribes and also to pay those assets.” The site asks for anonymous donations from those who “wish to see our plan succeed” and asks those with “expertise, intelligence or contacts you consider relevant,” to get in touch. The Bitcoin wallet associated with the site has received $88,000 since March, but as the website has only been live for about a week, donations thought to be related to the assassination fundraising only amount to $119, CSO reports. CSO said that the Secret Service is "aware" of the domain. Interestingly, as IBT notes, when looking at the website source code, there is a notice purporting to be from a "hacker" who successfully infiltrated the website to leave a message. The hacker claims to know the identity of the administrator and even published his alleged Reddit username. "This site is being hosted by the Canadian citizen [redacted]. "He once worked for a Canadian Best Buy's Geek Squad. However, I thought that I had saved some informations (sic) about him on my storage systems, but I can't find them anymore. His name, citizenship and former position are from my memory, but absolutely correct. "He's actually just a little scammer, but now he's calling to murder the president-elect. I don't see how anyone could sit back and watch someone doing that. I actually planned to send an email to the United States Secret Service about him, but I can't find an appropriate email address of the USSS, so I've to post this here. The message is signed: "The kind Austrian citizen, 1k4." While such "murder-for-hire" websites have shown up in the past, and add to the mystique of the Dark Web, many appear to be scams or honeypot schemes ran by law enforcement. One similar, notorious website called Besa Mafia was hacked earlier this year and leaked emails referenced links to police investigations.

Donald Trump Reportedly Considering Fast Food CEO For Labor Secretary

President-elect Donald Trump famously loves fast food. But does he love it enough to put a fast-food executive in charge of the Labor Department? On Friday, the New York Times reported that Trump is mulling Andrew Puzder to be his labor secretary. Puzder is the chief executive of CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. The Times attributed its brief report to an anonymous official on Trump’s transition team. Puzder met with Trump in person last month after the election. Although Trump’s cabinet is rapidly taking shape, the incoming administration hasn’t made any formal announcements about the labor post, and a few other names have been kicking around. But if Puzder were plucked, it’s safe to say he would be the first burger chain chief tasked with enforcing workplace safety laws and policing the nation’s employers for wage theft. For those who want to preserve President Barack Obama’s legacy on the labor front, Puzder would be an alarming choice to put atop the Labor Department. He’s been a loud critic of several of the president’s priorities and reforms, including raising the minimum wage and making more workers eligible for overtime pay. Earlier this year, Obama used his executive power to change the nation’s overtime rules and make them more generous to workers. Under the new rules, which are currently blocked in court, 4.2 million additional salaried workers would be entitled to time-and-a-half pay when they work more than 40 hours in a week, making them one of Obama’s most sweeping reforms done through executive action. In a 2014 Wall Street Journal opinion piece, Puzder insisted the new rules would end up hurting workers, including fast-food managers who’d be guaranteed overtime pay. “Overtime pay has to come from somewhere, most likely from reduced hours, reduced salaries or reduced bonuses,” he wrote. In an interview with Business Insider earlier this year, Puzder wasn’t too keen on the idea of hiking the minimum wage, either. He said that boosting the mandated wage floor would force fast-food executives like himself to look into replacing workers with robots. “With government driving up the cost of labor, it’s driving down the number of jobs,” he said. “You’re going to see automation not just in airports and grocery stores, but in restaurants.” As the nation’s top labor official, the labor secretary is in charge of the agency’s wage-and-hour division, which investigates allegations of wage theft. Puzder would have some experience in this arena. Like all fast-food chains, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants have been investigated frequently in the past for allegedly shorting employees on pay. Most fast-food restaurants are owned and operated by franchisees rather than the chain itself. A recent analysis by Bloomberg found that fast-food joints like Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. that operate on the franchise model are often found to have broken the law. Wage-and-hour officials found violations about 60 percent of the time that they investigated those two chains, according to Bloomberg. On his personal blog, Puzder wrote that Trump’s victory in the election will be good for the restaurant business, since the incoming president will roll back regulations that Puzder deems too burdensome. Obamacare, in particular, has helped lead to a “government-mandated restaurant recession,” Puzder wrote, even though the National Restaurant Association predicts that restaurant growth will outpace the economy at large this year. Puzder was an adviser to Mitt Romney when he ran for president in 2012, and he sometimes took to the airwaves or his personal blog to make the case for Trump during 2016. According to his official bio, Puzder was a trial lawyer before becoming an executive at CKE. He recently co-authored a book called Job Creation: How It Really Works and Why Government Doesn’t Understand It. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

He said that boosting the mandated wage floor would force fast-food executives like himself to look into replacing workers with robots. “With government driving up the cost of labor, it’s driving down the number of jobs,” he said. “You’re going to see automation not just in airports and grocery stores, but in restaurants.” As the nation’s top labor official, the labor secretary is in charge of the agency’s wage-and-hour division, which investigates allegations of wage theft. Puzder would have some experience in this arena. Like all fast-food chains, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants have been investigated frequently in the past for allegedly shorting employees on pay. Most fast-food restaurants are owned and operated by franchisees rather than the chain itself. A recent analysis by Bloomberg found that fast-food joints like Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. that operate on the franchise model are often found to have broken the law. Wage-and-hour officials found violations about 60 percent of the time that they investigated those two chains, according to Bloomberg. On his personal blog, Puzder wrote that Trump’s victory in the election will be good for the restaurant business, since the incoming president will roll back regulations that Puzder deems too burdensome. Obamacare, in particular, has helped lead to a “government-mandated restaurant recession,” Puzder wrote, even though the National Restaurant Association predicts that restaurant growth will outpace the economy at large this year. Puzder was an adviser to Mitt Romney when he ran for president in 2012, and he sometimes took to the airwaves or his personal blog to make the case for Trump during 2016. According to his official bio, Puzder was a trial lawyer before becoming an executive at CKE. He recently co-authored a book called Job Creation: How It Really Works and Why Government Doesn’t Understand It. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

How A Tennessee Agency Is Failing People With Disabilities

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Robert Wells graduated from high school with a B+ average. He took honors physics in 11th grade and earned a general education diploma, even though his cerebral palsy classified him as a special education student. So he and his mother were shocked when a counselor from a state agency that is supposed to assist people with disabilities determined during his senior year that he didn’t have the intelligence necessary to succeed in college or in a career. “I expect people in general to look at Robert and see his disability and what he can’t do,” said Robert’s mom, Cynthia Leatherwood, “but I expect VR to see what he can do.” “VR” is shorthand for Tennessee’s vocational rehabilitation office. Each state has VR offices, which are supposed to help people with disabilities get into the workforce. Assistance can include transportation to college for people who use wheelchairs, computer screen readers for people with visual impairments or career advice. In Tennessee, however, half of the residents found eligible for VR services in 2015 didn’t get any, according to federal data. More than 40 percent of counselor positions are vacant. Yet the state left $14 million in federal VR dollars on the table in 2015 and again in 2016, even as the agency temporarily shut its doors to new clients. Caseloads have ballooned to 200 clients per counselor, according to advocates, twice the recommended number. The agency cannot show state auditors how millions in federal dollars have been spent. State officials at the highest levels have been aware of these problems for years and have repeatedly failed to fix them, according to internal documents. Indeed in 2016 the federal government designated Tennessee’s VR grant “high risk” for most of the year, due to the state’s repeated inability to track how much money was being spent and on what. No other state VR grant received that designation. The impact is felt throughout the state, as aging parents struggle to help their adult children with disabilities become independent before they can no longer care for them. In Tennessee, 12 percent of people with disabilities have a bachelor’s degree, 21 percent are employed and close to a quarter live below the poverty line. “It’s disheartening to families, and it fosters the ‘check mentality,’ ” said Carrie Guiden, executive director of The Arc of Tennessee, a nonprofit disability advocacy group, referring to government checks. “They need more counselors to efficiently meet the demand for services.” Cynthia Leatherwood knew enough not to accept her son’s misdiagnosis by VR. She had spent 12 years as a senior education advocate at the Disability Law & Advocacy Center of Tennessee, advising other parents on how to get through the system. She tracked down the necessary paperwork for Robert, appealed his case and managed to get the evaluation reversed. It took several months, however, so even though she opened a case with VR in the fall of Robert’s senior year in high school, he started college in the fall of 2013 with none of the supports he needed, and she took out loans to cover all the costs. “I could never have made this happen if I was working a full-time job,” she said, pointing to the hours of paperwork and constant emailing and phone calls the appeal required. “I understand why people just give up.” Now a student at Nashville State Community College, Robert has made the dean’s list twice and has a GPA of 3.6 in his undergraduate courses. Related: Eligible but got nothing: Hundreds of thousands of people with disabilities blocked from college aid Tennessee’s VR office has long struggled to serve its clients effectively, federal documents show. In November 2015, the federal agency that oversees and provides funding to state VR offices noted that many of the problems that led to Tennessee’s high-risk designation for 2016 were identical to those spelled out in an audit issued in December 2011, “establishing a long history of material non-compliance.” Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam took office in January 2011, and that year brought in Raquel Hatter to lead the Department of Human Services, which oversees the state’s VR agency. Two years later, the agency was awarded more than $73 million in federal funds, but because of penalties and the state’s refusal to put up sufficient matching funds, the agency ended up with just $36 million to spend. Officials would not say whether the state would again fail to match and thus lose federal funds in 2017. The Department of Human Services spokesperson, Stephanie Jarnagin, wrote in an email, “The state is in the process of developing and implementing a plan to ensure full alignment with WIOA [the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, a federal law passed in 2014]. This will inform how the state will pursue additional federal dollars.” Meanwhile, current and former VR clients in Tennessee tell stories of leaving many messages for counselors and getting no response, only to be told months later that the counselors had quit. The high caseloads and rapid staff turnover have resulted in many inexperienced, overloaded counselors in some offices. “I really wanted the job, but I only lasted three months,” said one former counselor who quit in the spring of 2016 and asked to remain anonymous because of ongoing work with VR. “The number of cases, the backlog of people who hadn’t heard from anyone for months. I was tired of being yelled at for things I couldn’t do anything about.” Last year, Brandon Brown became the executive director of the nonprofit disability group Empower Tennessee, in Nashville. He knew the subject: In the late 1990s, when he lived in Alabama, Brown had gotten prompt help from Alabama’s VR office when he was losing his eyesight. He credits that agency with supporting him while he got his degree at the University of North Alabama. “It helped to change my life,” he said. Yet, he added, “when I started working here, right off the bat I started hearing nightmare VR stories.” Cara Wilson lived one of those stories. Her daughter, Hannah, is on the autism spectrum and graduated from high school in 2012. Wilson, 50, was hoping to get help connecting Hannah, now 25, with a suitable job or perhaps some college courses (Hannah was speaking three languages by the time she was two years old). She and Hannah began meeting with a counselor in the Franklin city office in 2014 and one day found out, after waiting for an hour, that the counselor wasn’t there due to illness. The supervisor took them into her office and asked Wilson and her daughter if they understood the power of prayer. “That was it. I was dumbfounded,” said Wilson, who is a single mother and also has a 13-year-old son on the spectrum. “She sent us home to pray. I didn’t know if I was supposed to pray for my counselor to get better or for services for Hannah.” Related: Students on the autism spectrum are often as smart as their peers — so why do so few go to college? In March 2016, the office of Tennessee’s comptroller of the Treasury issued an audit of dozens of the state’s federally funded programs and gave its harshest criticism to VR, issuing what’s known as an “adverse opinion.” “This is the first time our office has actually had to issue an adverse opinion in our state in auditing federal programs,” said Kandi Thomas, assistant director of performance and compliance. (The state first began this kind of audit in 1985.) “That to me speaks volumes.” Among other financial issues, the audit found that VR could not provide documentation for nearly $18 million in reported expenditures and had over-reported labor hours by 27,300 in fiscal year 2015. It also found that VR spent $22 million that should have been returned to the federal government because the state was not authorized to spend the funds. State officials said that they were addressing errors that dated back “at least 20 years.” This is the first time our office has actually had to issue an adverse opinion in our state in auditing federal programs. That to me speaks volumes.  “It is important to note that the errors were procedural in nature and the Department has not misused or otherwise misappropriated federal funds,” stated Jarnagin. Clients and advocates emphasize that they don’t believe the problem lies with individual counselors or their supervisors. They point to ballooning caseloads, high counselor turnover, poor training and an overall “mindset” that doesn’t prioritize meaningful employment for people with disabilities. In January 2015, the state’s VR office stopped serving new clients for more than a month. Officials say they were “aligning internal procedures” to make sure they were in compliance with federal law, but sources inside the agency say there was a budget crisis, with a shortfall of funds. State officials contend that no existing or prospective clients felt any impact from the move, and that they continued to process new applications, but several clients and former VR counselors dispute this. They say, for example, that the number of residential clients at a training center in Smyrna dropped to about 50 from 150. Some clients’ transportation and childcare benefits were suspended, and waiting times to get appointments and to get through the process shot up. (This was the same year that Tennessee VR gave up $14 million in federal funding.) Throughout 2015, more than 40 percent of the counselor positions at VR were vacant. This was still the case as of Sept. 30, 2016, according to Jarnagin (75 of 180 counselor positions were unfilled). She suggested that they may never be filled. “The other vacancies are in the process of being filled,” Jarnagin wrote, “however, it should be noted that pending assessment of the new WIOA requirements all of the vacancies may or may not be filled.” Leisa Hammett, whose daughter, Grace, is on the autism spectrum, had done a lot of research before entering the VR system. She had heard that many people felt they were being set up for failure. They would try several times with VR and then give up in frustration, “and end up sitting on the sofa, and that’s not what I wanted for my daughter.” Grace, now 22, had been on a waiting list for 13 years at another state agency designed to give long-term assistance to people with disabilities when Hammett opened a case with VR. “I had heard the horror stories and I thought, ‘I’ll make my own story,’ ” said Hammett, 56. “I’ll bring the honey instead of the vinegar.” Related: ‘I spend half my days in accelerated classes and the other half in special ed’ After several months of paperwork, meetings and evaluations, VR helped Grace get a trial work experience at a retail store in July. It went well: Grace enjoyed it; the store was a two-minute drive from her house; and the manager asked Grace to come in for an interview for a regular job. But two days before the interview, a VR counselor told Hammett that VR could not continue to support Grace and her employer unless Grace received long-term job coaching, which VR couldn’t provide (that’s what the agency where Grace had been on the waiting list for 13 years was for). The red tape, delays and unreturned phone calls continued for weeks until finally, in October, VR reversed itself and said that they would support Grace giving the job a try. After getting back in touch with the store manager, Hammett received a message on Oct. 26 that the job was no longer available. “Many of the systems that are set up to help us end up hurting us,” said Hammett. She went back to the drawing board, making more phone calls to supervisors. She brought an outside advocate and Grace’s father to the next meeting, and Grace was offered an interview at another store, 30 minutes away from her home. Grace interviewed and was hired to work three-hour shifts three days a week for a total of nine hours a week. “It’s a start,” said Hammett. “She needed to be engaged without further ado. I will work out transportation … more time. More paperwork. More calls. More advocacy.” Advocates for those with disabilities say they hope that Tennessee’s VR agency will take steps to improve how it functions so that it can better serve their clients. “There’s a stigma that people with disabilities are consumers of resources — takers, not contributors,” said Brown, of Empower Tennessee. “But if you support people with disabilities in jobs that they want to do, they will actually be much less dependent on government services.” This story was produced by The Hechinger Report, a nonprofit, independent news organization focused on inequality and innovation in education.

Following Attacks, Gay Bangladeshis Are Retreating Into The Closet

BANGKOK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Seven months after al Qaeda-linked militants hacked Bangladesh’s most prominent gay activist to death, the South Asian country’s LGBT community remains in hiding, while more than a dozen LGBT people have fled abroad. “The whole community has been sent back to the closet,” a gay activist in exile told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on condition of anonymity because he fears for his safety. “Any kind of work - whatever we had been doing - it has been completely shut down. There is no movement, no visibility, no work. It is a horrible situation. We have never imagined the situation would be like this.” Bangladesh’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community was already marginalized, with gay sex being illegal, punishable by a maximum of life in prison. Then there was a coming out of sorts with the 2014 launch of the country’s first LGBT-themed magazine, Roopbaan, which became a subject of interest in the media and on social media, prompting a backlash and threats. The community suffered escalating threats and then on April 25, Xulhaz Mannan, the founder and publisher of Roopbaan, and gay actor Mahbub Rabbi Tonoy were hacked to death at Mannan’s home in Dhaka. The attack, claimed by the regional arm of al Qaeda, was the first of its kind to target the LGBT community, although it followed more than 30 killings since early 2015 of academics, bloggers and atheists who published views critical of Islam. “We had been very visible over past two years. A huge number of young people came up and volunteered for our work. After this one incident... the whole community collapsed,” the activist told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on the sidelines of an international LGBT conference in Bangkok last week. “This one incident broke the sense of security. More than 15 people left the country. More than 10 want to leave. People in Bangladesh don’t want to talk to us. The whole community is so scattered and scared.” Those who have fled abroad are slowly reconnecting and trying to organize a meeting to assess the situation, but those remaining in Bangladesh still are not ready, he said. The activist asked to conceal his identity because he fears being killed, yet feels he is has been given a “second life” and wants to speak out because many people around the world know about discrimination LGBT people face in Uganda, Indonesia and Malaysia, but few know about Bangladesh. “People talk about many other countries - but Bangladesh never comes up,” he said. “What happened is brutal - they martyred the whole movement. I feel sad, but I also feel furious, more determined. We have to do something to challenge this brutality.” But now, having left the country just days before Mannan was killed, he is just trying to stay alive. “This is maybe my second life. I have some responsibility. I won’t stop. I won’t die. I hope one day, I will see the community we created - maybe after five years, maybe after 10 years, but I don’t want to die before that.” More than 700 LGBT people from around the world convened in Bangkok last week for a conference organized by the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA). Founded in 1978 and based in Geneva, ILGA is a federation of 1,200 member organization from 125 countries campaigning for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex rights.   (Reporting by Alisa Tang @alisatang, editing by Ros Russell.

Activism, Strategic Trading, and Liquidity -- by Kerry Back, Pierre Collin-Dufresne, Vyacheslav Fos, Tao Li, Alexander Ljungqvist

We analyze dynamic trading in an anonymous market by an activist investor who can expend costly effort to affect firm value. We obtain the equilibrium in closed form for a general activism technology, including both binary and continuous outcomes. The optimal continuous trading strategy is independent of the activism technology. Activism, prices, and liquidity are jointly determined in equilibrium. Variation in noise trading volatility can produce either positive or negative effects on both efficiency and liquidity, depending on the activism technology and model parameters, because future effort depends on the realized amount of noise trading. The `lock in' effect emphasized in previous literature (e.g., Maug (1998)) holds only for special forms of the activism technology. Reducing the uncertainty about the activist's position improves market liquidity, but the effect on efficiency depends on the specification of the effort cost function. Variation in the activist's productivity produces a negative cross-sectional relation between efficiency and liquidity as the possibility of more activism exacerbates the risk of adverse selection.

Украинские хакеры выложили в сеть переписку представителей партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина"

БРЮССЕЛЬ, 16 марта. /Корр. ИТАР-ТАСС Денис Дубровин/. Украинская ячейка международной сети Anonymous и группа хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", выложили в интернет электронную переписку представителей руководства украинских партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина". Архивы с перепиской содержат сообщения, которыми обменивались региональные лидеры партий в Киеве, Львове, Донецке, Харькове и Луганске. В сообщениях, в частности, обсуждается организация силовых провокаций на Восточной Украине с участием активистов "Правого сектора". Никаких независимых подтверждений этой информации, добытой незаконным путем, не существует. Группа украинских хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", в ночь с субботы на воскресенье обрушила основные информационные ресурсы НАТО, которые более 12 часов работали с серьезными перебоями. Их функционирование восстановилось в полной мере только после того, как хакеры распространили заявление "о прекращении DDoS-атаки на ресурсы НАТО". Пока неизвестно, смогли ли эксперты по киберобороне НАТО установить источник атаки и будет ли альянс выдвигать судебные претензии хакерам. Распределенный отказ в обслуживании, известный под английской аббревиатурой DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), - это один из наиболее распространенных методов хакерского нападения, цель которого - перегрузить системы огромным количеством запросов, автоматически направляемых одновременно с большого числа компьютеров.

Хакеры Anonymous напали на Израиль

Сайты правительственных организаций Израиля подвергаются кибератакам хакеров, передает Associated Press со ссылкой на израильские СМИ.Представители организации Anonymous сообщили в социальной сети Twitter о начале "операции Израиль". Как стало известно, атакам подверглись сайты министерства обороны и министерства образования Израиля, а также целый ряд сайтов израильских банков.Утверждается, что ни один сайт не прекратил своей работы, и все атаки были до сих пор успешно отражены.По словам представителей Anonymous, атаки на сайты правительства Израиля являются ответом на авиаудар, нанесенный израильскими военно-воздушными силами по сектору Газа 3 апреля 2013г.Напомним, в ноябре 2012г. Израиль провел в секторе Газа, находящемся под контролем палестинского движения "Хамас", восьмидневную военную операцию "Облачный столп". Конфликт завершился перемирием, достигнутым при посредничестве Египта.Источник: РБК.руИ в дополнение:«Anonymous» раскрыли сеть из 30 000 тайных агентов Моссада: вычислить израильского террориста теперь может каждыйХакерская организация Anonymous взломала информационную систему «израильского» «Моссада»Несколько дней назад хакерская организация «Anonymous», использующая в качестве своего символа знаменитую «маску Гая Фокса», взломала информационную систему «израильского» «Моссада», раскрыв сеть из 30 000 тайных агентов, часть из которых отнесены к категории «киллеров».
