Silk Road Creator Ross Ulbricht Sentenced to Life in Prison | WIRED

Silk Road Creator Ross Ulbricht Sentenced to Life in Prison | WIRED | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

ROSS ULBRICHT CONCEIVED of his Silk Road black market as an online utopia beyond law enforcement’s reach. Now he’ll spend the rest of his life firmly in its grasp, locked inside a federal penitentiary.

On Friday Ulbricht was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for his role in creating and running Silk Road’s billion-dollar, anonymous black market for drugs. Judge Katherine Forrest gave Ulbricht the most severe sentence possible, beyond what even the prosecution had explicitly requested. The minimum Ulbricht could have served was 20 years.

“Today EPA confirmed what communities living with fracking have known for years, fracking pollutes drinking water,” said Earthworks Policy Director Lauren Pagel. She continued, “Now the Obama administration, Congress, and state governments must act on that information to protect our drinking water, and stop perpetuating the oil and gas industry’s myth that fracking is safe.”

Texas Bans Bans: Adam Briggle quoted by @Newsweek

Texas Bans Bans: Adam Briggle quoted by @Newsweek | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
For the past century, cities in Texas have had courts and the state recognize their power to govern themselves, with the understanding that the city knows best how to protect its way of life and its citizens,” says Adam Briggle, a philosophy professor at the University of North Texas in Denton, and the president of the Denton Drilling Awareness Group, which supports fracking bans. “That tradition has now been undermined.”
Keith Wayne Brown's insight:

More coverage of the struggle for local autonomy to protect ourselves from predatory investment by outside financiers and politicians.

Recognizing Human Dignity

Recognizing Human Dignity | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
It is risky to predict the outcome of Supreme Court cases based on what the justices say at the oral argument. But Kennedy's commitment to the principle of human dignity and his understanding of its role in protecting intimate relationships run deep. If Bonauto and her colleagues succeed in winning the right for same-sex couples to marry, we can expect strong language from Kennedy defending the decision as essential to support human dignity. And an opinion on that ground will move US constitutional law closer to modern world jurisprudence that recognizes dignity as a preeminent value requiring protection.

This Flower-Filled Abandoned House Is Bringing A Bit Of Life Back To Detroit

This Flower-Filled Abandoned House Is Bringing A Bit Of Life Back To Detroit | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

Late one evening this month, a woman appeared in the second-story window of an abandoned house overlooking a Detroit freeway. A spotlight illuminated her face as she flung handfuls of white petals down to the crowd gathered outside a venue that felt more like the setting of a dark fairytale than a fundraiser.

Branches of bright yellow forsythia hung over the doorways, catching visitors’ hair as they walked through the home, now owned by florist Lisa Waud. Grape hyacinths sprouted up through the floorboards that a month ago had been hidden by several feet of debris, left behind by the house's former owners. White flowers sat in the crumbling toilet. Moss oozed out of the corners. Foliage pushed through one wall’s wooden slats, exposed by the worn-down plaster.

Heather Cassils: the transgender bodybuilder who attacks heaps of clay

Heather Cassils: the transgender bodybuilder who attacks heaps of clay | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

By playing with body art, gay male aesthetics and extreme physical training – from weightlifting to martial arts – the artist has adapted his own female body into a series of powerful physical shapes that challenge any notion of binary gender...


"...I wanted to draw attention to the fact that our genderqueer and trans brothers and sisters are so much more likely to experience physical violence: worldwide, transgender murders increased by 20% in 2012."

Audiences may see Cassils' muscle-heavy body as a way of challenging such violence, confronting bullying with strength. Through weight training, Muay Thai martial arts, traditional boxing, diet manipulation and supplements, the artist pushes the definition of a "biologically female body" to its visual extreme without taking testosterone or having surgery. Cassils is almost unfeasibly strong, almost entirely naturally...

I was a liberal adjunct professor. My liberal students didn’t scare me at all.

The problem isn't the substance of student complaints — the problem is that university lecturers are so terrified of the effect student complaints could have. That's a problem to be solved by universities having faculty members' backs, not by somehow silencing the debate over identity politics.

Bodies of Water

Bodies of Water | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
The apparatus of disappearance is a capitalist ritual of creating ghosts. Disappearance is intrinsic to capitalism, to Western modernity, which is always already prepared to dispose of these othered humans along lines of racialized poverty. Disappearance in this sense, of the necropolitical creation of disposable classes that are prone to vanishing, exceeds structures of justice and testifies to the law as the cohering of a fiction into a system of truth through repetition and ritual—how humans are made and unmade.

Luciano Floridi on the Philosophy of Information

Luciano Floridi on the Philosophy of Information | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

The philosophy of information is a new area of research. We didn’t study it when we were students, partly because we didn’t realise that the glasses were on our noses. There’s a lot of philosophy from the ancient Greeks to the present day that discusses what we now think of as the philosophy of information, it’s just that it wasn’t called that, and the focus of our society, our cultural interest, wasn’t on this particular concept. But in ethics, for instance, when you discuss what it takes to make the right decision, it takes a well-grounded rational, well-informed agent. In Epistemology the foundation of knowledge requires some initial of information that you need to justify, warrant, and support. And so on. The philosophical discourse has always included an interest in what we would today call information.
