My concern is that women with ambition in these fields don't become discouraged by these findings. I think if I were a young woman studying in one of these fields I might say, "Why should I struggle to achieve when structural bias will prevent my success."

I think that there is a meaningful probability that credit cards will go the same way as typewriters and that wire transfer systems will be replaced in the same way that email replaced the postal service – that is the power of Bitcoin. --- +Daniel Masters

Why don't ALL nursing homes allow REAL cats and dogs?

That is so true.

Inter-generational solidarity is pretty much gone here. It's wonderful that you feel that way about your parents and grandparents. That is the way it really should be.

I met this woman while visiting my father-in-law. She was so lonely that she was petting toys animals. A real cat or dog would give her so much pleasure. But family would be very much better.

Surely those are more solitary, who, in the midst of a croud, find no one with whom they can converse congenially, than those, who, without witnesses, hold communion with themselves, and enter into the secret counsels of the sagest philosophers, while they delight themselves in their writings and discoveries. Who can be esteemed richer than the man who wants nothing which nature requires, or more powerful than he who attains all she desiderates; or happier than he who is free from all mental perturbation; or more secure in future than he who carries all his property in himself which is thus secured from shipwreck? And what power, what magistracy, what royalty can be preferred to a wisdom, which, looking down on all terrestrial objects as low and transitory things, incessantly directs its attention to eternal and immutable verities, and which is persuaded that though others are called men, none are really so but those who have cultivated the appropriate acts of humanity?

Cicero, On the Commonwealth

Who is telling the truth? NSA or the tech companies?

Rajesh De, the NSA general counsel, said all communications collections occurred with the knowledge of the companies despite their angry denials.
 
A Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board conducted a hearing about Section 702 of FISA today. One important takeaway: the NSA claims that the big tech companies were full aware of both Prism (legally forcing companies to open their front door) and upstream collection (tapping the backbone). The Guardian writes:

"The senior lawyer for the National Security Agency stated unequivocally on Wednesday that US technology companies were fully aware of the surveillance agency’s widespread collection of data, contradicting month of angry denials from the firms."

Marcy Wheeler points out that a big part of the hearing consisted of trying to define everyday words, such as "purge" and "search". Once again, NSA uses its very own definitions. Marcy writes:

[snip]

[...] Sometimes the actual collection of data counts as a search, sometimes only the querying of it does. NSA gets to decide which is which, best as I can tell, in secret or in legal filings where it will serve to deprive someone of s[t]anding.

[snip]

“Purge.” To keep. Somewhere else.

Burden of proof is on the NSA to prove it.  The tech companies can't prove a negative.
