Terminally ill patients should have the option to depart on their own terms.
Though physician-assisted suicide is not legal in California, families find a way to do it – in secret.

An Iraqi officer planned Islamic State's takeover in Syria and SPIEGEL has been given exclusive access to his papers. They portray an organization that, while seemingly driven by religious fanaticism, is actually coldly calculating.

And today, it's official.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler issued a statement saying that preventing the merger "is in the best interests of consumers. The proposed transaction would have created a company with the most broadband and video subscribers in the nation alongside the ownership of significant programming interests. ... Today, an online video market is emerging that offers new business models and greater consumer choice. The proposed merger would have posed an unacceptable risk to competition and innovation, including to the ability of online video providers to reach and serve consumers."
Comcast regrets not being able to "bring our great products to new cities."

Promoting the image of a world full of enemies creates a “security psychosis” that misshapes our view of the world. It tempts us to interpret defensive steps taken by other countries as threatening. In extreme cases, it pushes us into wars aimed at preempting threats that do not actually exist.

Arms manufacturers profit from the security psychosis even more directly than militarists. Americans take our staggeringly large defense budget almost for granted, and lament continuously that other countries do not build as many exotic weapons systems as we do. Finding new threats is always good business for someone.

With the United States so dominant in global politics, it’s time to secure this low-threat world. Our strategic goal should be to keep our country as safe as it is now. That means bringing troublemaking countries out of their isolation. Ignoring their interests, or seeking “full-spectrum dominance” to assure that they cannot rise, provokes reactions that will be bad for us in the long run.

Section 215 (warrantless bulk records collection) doesn't appear likely to be reauthorized in its current form, so Congress is working on alternatives. This is a particularly good time to contact Congresspeople and Senators to let them know what you think about NSA surveillance.

In my experience, I've found TechnoMomma to be an invaluable resource to me. Her creative solutions to even the most daunting technical problems have continued to impress me! I've also known TechnoMomma to have astounding capabilities in sales and marketing, and I'm very glad to see them put to use.

I called the night before I needed a ride. The driver showed up just ahead of schedule, waited for me to drop my car off at the shop, then took me home without any trouble. I was satisfied with the service I received.
