Interesting piece, and encouraging to see that we are making progress in this area.

I had another thought. Many people get really upset when they see entrepreneurs and other business people "wasting" resources on figuring out what seem to be rather inane problems. And, while I'll never really consider someone who finds the bet way to deliver as many pizzas as possible a hero, I think maybe we shouldn't get so worked up about it. After all, these folks would probably never have put in that kind of sustained effort to the kinds of research in this article. BUT. Because the work they do can be used in other contexts, in a sense this work is bringing in additional resources to the problem.
Matching donors and recipients is a bit like the traveling salesman problem.

Mr. Bell is a hero. I think that every state should have such a law. Combined with body cams, I think that police use of force, not just killing, will go down ALOT.
After police in Kenosha, Wis., shot my 21-year-old son to death outside his house ten years ago — and then immediately cleared themselves of all wrongdoing — an African-American man approached me and said: “If they can shoot a white boy like a dog, imagine what we’ve been going through.” I could imagine it all too easily,...

This is worth looking at. I'd be willing to bet tht Verizon, at least, has something similar.
 
Worried about what your kids are doing on their phones and when they're using them (like in school or late at night?). Turns out AT&T has a really cool feature called Smart Limits that you need to know about...

recorded live from my hotel room in Las Vegas, too!

It's  bit scary. but the potential here is huge. And, not just for mental health. There are similar types of efforts for other diseases.

It's not just that this could be effective, and cost effective, but that these things are likely to be used. Think, for instance, of the people who don't want to get a hearing aid because they are too noticeable. With a cell phone, the monitor just blends right in - smart phones are becoming ubiquitous in the west, and and even becoming common in the "developing" world. 
A slew of mental health apps are coming out of academic institutions, research clinics and a number of start-ups. They all seek to facilitate the management of serious mental illnesses—such as severe depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Comcast gives politicians V.I.P. customer service so they never find out how abusive they are to the rest of us

In an article about how former Meet the Press anchor David Gregory lost his job, The Washingtonian did some reporting about how Comcast bribes politicians and other political actors -- even Al Sharpton. As part of the piece they mentioned that Comcast has special, high-priority customer service for employees, which they extend to politicians, journalists and anyone else in a position to affect their take-over of Internet access in the United States. 

From the article: 

"Comcast also had an even more personal way of sucking up to Washington. Its government-affairs team carried around “We’ll make it right” cards stamped with “priority assistance” codes for fast-tracking help and handed them out to congressional staffers, journalists, and other influential Washingtonians who complained about their service."

In case anyone wants to know why women have a hard time reporting assault, here is a perfect example.

The one line summary: A woman describes how a coworker grabbed her and tried to kiss her and then argued with her when she pushed him away and told him no, and in response a commenter wants to know how much they had to drink because if he drank we should cut him some slack, but if she drank we should question her judgement and possibly her behavior.

The short version:

She was in a bar with a group of co-worker / friends when one guy grabbed her and tried to kiss her. She pushed back and said no, and he tried to pressure her. She reminded him that he has a wife and kid and he said that he's having marriage problems and she told him to leave her out of it.  He then complained to her that their work relationship had gotten chilly, and later on lied to his wife and told his wife that she had kissed him.

She writes back with a follow up that she's been keeping her distance, and in the run up to this year's company sponsored holiday vacation trip, she told him that she expects him to behave himself. what he had to say in that conversation somewhat worried her so she finally told her manager what was going on.

In this branch of the comments we have someone who questions how much alcohol they had had to drink. If he's been drinking, then we should cut him some slack. If she's been drinking we should question her judgement and possibly even her behavior.

Remember the letter-writer whose married coworker kissed her and who then received an angry email from the coworker's wife? Here's the update. Thank you fo

This is just such an incredible story. I wonder how many other untold stories are out there.
For its 99th edition of Here’s My Story the My Encouter team at JEM share a particularly moving and emotional story told by Rabbi Aron Dovid Neuman, of a man he only knew as “monsieur” who he met in France as a child during the Holocaust, and to w...

It may be freezing in Pontiac, Michigan, but if you’re a black man out for a walk it’s probably best to keep your hands out of your pockets. Or else risk getting stopped by the police because your actions make people nervous. Brandon McKean posted a difficult-to-believe video on his...

Story
Introduction
I run the Nonprofit Helpdesk, and the IT operations for the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island, which is the mother organization. I've been in the computer field for 20 years, most of it in the nonprofit sector, and it's been fascinating and rewarding. Many, many years ago I thought I was going to become a teacher, but I found that I was not a really good classroom teacher, so I decided to find something I would be good at. Computers seemed to be it. But, I wasn't too happy to be working ONLY with technology. So, I'm very, very fortunate that I've found myself in a position that is not just technology per se. I get to deal with people all the time, and some of the most important things I learned when I was going to school to teach have really really come in handy.
