     “Ever since I was a kid, my best friends—all girls—have been abused: my best friends when I was little, in middle school, in college, and then in graduate school. Different phases, different places. One of them was later murdered by her boyfriend. The whole time, I felt as if I was in this glass house and I couldn’t do anything about it: I was just a powerless witness to their suffering.     “Eventually, this all led to my current interest in linking hormones and stress with reproductive outcomes among black women who’ve experienced the same things as children. I want to understand how their experiences lead them to make certain decisions. I’m a deep believer in God, and I feel that He was showing me these things at different stages in my life so I can better understand them and be able to help young girls so they don’t get into bad relationships.”

    Hi, I can’t sign because I don’t live in the UK, but I have severe hyperacusis. I don’t think people should be subjected to sonic pain devices.

    I’m an adult who can hear the fake mosquito whine obnoxiousness. I was also a kid who spent a decent bit of time in libraries.

    The sonic pest deterrent approach specifically aimed at kids is nasty enough in general. This is the kind of respect and esteem too many people show for young human beings.

    But, trying to run kids away from a LIBRARY? Plus anyone else with sensitive hearing? Whoever though that one up should have to listen to a sonic weapon they can hear, 24/7, for at least a month. I wouldn’t want them hanging around my building, either. :-|

    Signal boosting.  I can’t sign it either (same reason, not in UK).  And I’m deaf so even if I were sitting in one of those libraries, I would be oblivious and would still have been just as oblivious even as a child.  But, yeah, I don’t have to know what it’s like to be annoyed by certain sounds (though I DO sorta know since I’m not completely deaf!) to see that this is really unfair to kids who may NEED a quiet space away from school or home to study or do research or just settle down with a good book.  If they’re worried about kids being rowdy or something, surely there are other approaches they could take to address that problem that doesn’t involve penalizing all kids for something only some of them are doing.

    All this even before considering that people should be ENCOURAGING kids to go to the library, not chasing them away :-(

    Hope this petition succeeds.

    I hate those noises. This is awful.

    Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.

    In the Moment: Glide Verifies Ferguson Shooting Recording

    glideapp:

    As you may already have seen on CNNMSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell,” the local FOX affiliate in St. Louis and Riverfront Times, the Glide mobile app is being mentioned in the current news cycle surrounding the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, with a video message created using the app having surfaced as potentially critical evidence.

    While tragedy is never good news, and our hearts go out to the family of Michael Brown, this incident underscores how technology is changing the landscape of not only journalism, but also criminology.

    A Glide user living nearby (whose identity is being protected) was simply using the Glide app on their smartphone exactly as it was designed – to instantly communicate with a friend through our real-time video texting service. Simultaneously, they also captured audio in the background of the gunshots allegedly fired at Michael Brown.

    Because Glide is the only messaging application using streaming video technology, each message is simultaneously recorded and transmitted, so the exact time can be verified to the second. In this case, the video in question was created at 12:02:14 PM CDT on Saturday, August 9th.

    We commend this Glide user for turning their Glide video message over to FBI investigators as possible evidence in this ongoing investigation.
