The Age of Mammals: Looking Back on the First Quarter of the Twenty-First Century

Rebecca Solnit | [For Solomon Solnit (b. Oct. 18, 2006)]

I've been writing the year-end other-news summary for Tomdispatch since 2004; somewhere around 2017, however, the formula of digging up overlooked stories and grounds for hope grew weary. So for this year, we've decided instead to look back on the last 25 years of the twenty-first century -- but it was creatures from sixty million years ago who reminded me how to do it. more...  0 Comments

Mt. Hood "Tragedy" - Is the Bourgeois Press Encouraging People To Believe In Wilderness Rescue Miracles?

Varlet | Little has been said about the wisdom of their decision to attempt to scale one of the tallest mountains in the Cascade Range during the worst time of the year for such an adventure. I realize that the families of the victims are holding out hope that their loved ones will be found to have survived the hellish conditions they encountered this week; I do not wish to add to their suffering by publishing this article. It is in the interest of preventing the loss of lives in the future that I present this piece, as my research into this tragedy has turned up some very interesting information regarding the quality of information available to the public regarding weather conditions in the region, and the facilities available to those who attempt to scale these very dangerous peaks.

NYCLU on Surveillance Cameras: A Critique

SCP typing pool | It pains us to say this – we greatly appreciate and have been inspired by the NYCLU’s efforts, and we have in fact worked with this organization (in 2004 and 2005, we helped train their volunteers to spot and map surveillance cameras, and so we are among the two dozen other names selected for “thanks” in the NYCLU’s new report) – but the absence of really fresh, useful information is not the report’s only failing. more...  1 Comments
