T and R, jcb!! 🙂 Did you mean to type 11/29? Nothing like seeing how dangerously stupid Fundie X-tians are. What controls them is the classic example of evil.

Kamala Harris suffers new blow as aide resigns with scathing letter: ‘I’ve never seen staff treated so poorly’

Staffers and allies within the campaign also criticised Ms Harris for retreating against Democratic rivals without clear messaging as to whether she straddles the moderate or progressive side of the party’s current ideological divide, according to the report.

As for her platform, Ms Harris also has faced criticism for not having a clear health care plan, which has become central to top-polling Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, and for poorly manoeuvring a progressive criminal justice plan while answering for her record as a prosecutor.

The report also says division within the campaign is in part due to leadership — Maya Harris, who directs the campaign, is the candidate’s sister, making it difficult for staff to address their criticism of the candidate. Staffers also believe it would be difficult to replace Mr Rodriguez without also signalling the resignations of Ms Harris’ consultants.

I wish this would happen to Buttigieg. But he has the full force of the anybody but Bernie coalition, which is a powerful and wealthy coalition.

Bruno Latour wrote a classic book from a classic study of Laboratory Life 40 years ago. It was recently noted in science magazine. Here is the tweet and the link to the article in Science – which is the official magazine of AAAS – american association for Advancement of science

many scientists were pissed at him. He documented how science works. How facts are produced. But, he didn’t hold Science up in an exalted position. Back then, Science was key to progress, but now we see where progress has ended up. Now sciencists are looking to him for support. Did you know that it takes millions to support a major scientific effort. Some political decision was involved. Science is not separate from politics, not above the fray. And furthermore, science is essential as the climate collapses.

the author in the Science Mag article gets a lot of things right, but Latour is deeper

here is a direct link to the Science mag article

Jeremy Corbyn visited with the workers.

The union cited figures suggesting there had been more than 600 ambulance call-outs to Amazon warehouses over a three-year period and just as many serious incidents reported to the Health and Safety Executive for various injuries. They also claimed workers had to urinate in water bottles and said there had been at least one report of a lost pregnancy, Yahoo! reported. Jeremy Corbyn visited protestors outside Amazon’s Sheffield centre to show his support earlier this week.
