Today on Democracy Now !!!

Monday

Anita Sarkeesian, a prominent feminist critic of video games, was forced to cancel a speech at Utah State University last week after the school received an email threatening to carry out "the deadliest shooting in American history" at the event. The email sender wrote: "feminists have ruined my life and I will have my revenge." The sender used the moniker Marc Lepine, the name of a man who killed 14 women, most of them female engineering students, in a mass shooting in Montreal in 1989. Sarkeesian canceled the talk after being told that under Utah law, campus police could not prevent people from bringing guns. We speak to Sarkeesian about the incident, the "Gamergate" controversy, and her campaign to expose misogyny, sexism and violence against female characters in video games despite repeated physical threats. "Online harassment, especially gendered online harassment, is an epidemic," Sarkeesian says. "Women are being driven out, they’re being driven offline; this isn’t just in gaming, this is happening across the board online, especially with women who participate in or work in male-dominated industries."

This Past Week's Guest
Diana Nightingale

While recognized as, The First Lady of Transformation, and has dedicated most of her adult life in the service of helping others, many still think of Diana, first, as the wife and widow of, Earl Nightingale a legendary giant in the personal achievement world. Make no mistake, Diana Nightingale does not stand in the shadow of her late husband, but shines brightly on her own. With her own personal, powerful message Diana has been speaking to audiences for more than 30-years, was an advocate for teen-pregnancy programs, and was a local board member of the Lee County Mental Health Association. Diana is an author, seminar/retreat leader, an international speaker addressing audiences across the USA and overseas. She offers grief counseling, life coaching, has a Doctorate Degree in Religious Studies and is a Stephen Minister. Diana, brings new life to the time-tested Nightingale messages and shows how to make them work in today’s ever-changing world. Even during the bleakest of times, she is quick to enforce the age-old truth that “we become what we think about”. In her latest book, “The Spiritual Flight of The Nightingale”, Diana tells how she finds inspiration from the world around her and from the lessons she has learned from life. In her book, “Learning To Fly As A Nightingale” Diana tells of her life before meeting Earl; Earl’s life before meeting Diana; Their time together and then how she found her wings and was able to fly again after Earl’s passing. The experiences, pain and joy she shares gives insight to what others experience in their lives. Diana’s passion for radio started as she engineered her husband’s radio shows and later as she became more and more in demand as a radio and TV guest, she longed to be on the other side of the microphone. During the radio days spent with Greg Norman of Universal 7 radio network, Diana once again realized the power of the spoken word and the importance of positive programming in a negative driven society. Now, Diana has found her radio home and is broadcasting her series called, “Holiday On Earth™…Journey Into Meaning™”. Diana is the mother of three adult children, Kim, Dayne and Jill, and is the proud grandmother (Mimi) to four adult grandchildren, Dan, Sabra, Jordan and Juliette.

Second-Guessing Ourselves
We like to think of ourselves as self-aware, reflective beings, but psychological studies demonstrate that we’re usually overconfident in the accuracy of our own beliefs. Memory, for example, can be extremely unreliable, even when we feel certain we know what happened. Surprisingly, when we’re made aware of this, we adjust our level of confidence in ourselves only slightly. How, then, can we doubt ourselves in a rational and efficient manner to bring our beliefs closer to reality? And, just as importantly, how do we prevent ourselves from falling into the other extreme of constant second guessing? John and Ken don't think twice with Sherri Roush from UC Berkeley, author of Tracking Truth: Knowledge, Evidence, and Science. This program was recorded live at the Marsh Theatre in Berkeley, California. - See more at: http://philosophytalk.org/shows/second-guessing-ourselves#sthash.8351d8g1.dpuf

Heart Medication Digoxin Linked to Higher Risk of Death for Some

    By Steven Reinberg, HealthDay News


Increase seen in people with certain abnormal heart rhythms, study finds.

Digoxin, a drug that's been used to treat heart problems for about 200 years, might increase the risk of dying in certain patients.

New research suggests that for people who have a particular type of irregular heart rhythm, called atrial fibrillation, taking the drug digoxin may increase the risk of dying by more than 20 percent.

"We found in 122,000 patients with atrial fibrillation, those treated with digoxin were more likely to die [during the study period] than patients prescribed other medications," said lead researcher Dr. Mintu Turakhia, an assistant professor of cardiology at Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, Calif.

Although the current research found an association between the drug digoxin and a higher risk of death for people with atrial fibrillation or flutter, the study does not show that the drug caused the higher risk of death.

RELATED: 7 Hidden Dangers for People With Atrial Fibrillation

However, Turakhia thinks the risk may be the result of digoxin causing other dangerous abnormal heart rhythms.

"Even though you are being given a drug to slow down your heart rate in atrial fibrillation, it may be causing other problems with your heart that may increase the risk of death," he said.

Digoxin is made from extracts of the foxglove plant, also called digitalis. It has long been a standard treatment for atrial fibrillation, according to background information in the study.

Given that there are other treatments for atrial fibrillation, Turakhia wonders why digoxin should be the treatment of choice for these patients. "There are other safer drugs out there," he said.

Safer alternatives may include drugs known as beta-blockers or calcium channel blockers, Turakhia said. "These have never been tied to an increased risk of death or major concerns with safety," he said.

Turakhia thinks patients taking digoxin for atrial fibrillation should talk with their doctor about possibly switching to another medication.

  
    A debate over the merits of eating less salt escalated when one of the most comprehensive studies yet suggested cutting back on sodium too much actually poses health hazards

Sodium is an essential nutrient

Sodium is the main component of salt but they are not the same thing. Salt’s chemical name is sodium chloride. Sodium regulates blood pressure and blood volume and affects other such crucial processes as muscle and nerve function.
 

High levels are associated with cardiovascular risk

New research suggests intake over 6,000 milligrams a day is associated with increased risk of death, heart attack, stroke and heart failure. And there is broad consensus that people with high levels of dietary sodium should reduce it, especially if they have high blood pressure.
Current guidelines call for very low levels

U.S. guidelines promoted by the Food and Drug Administration and other agencies call for daily consumption lower than 2,300 milligrams. The American Heart Association recommends a 1,500-milligram daily cap in sodium intake.
 

Americans eat a lot of sodium

Current average daily intake in the U.S. is 3,400 milligrams, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 75% of dietary sodium comes from food you buy in supermarkets or restaurants; another 12% comes naturally in food; the rest is from the salt shaker.

Reducing intake to low levels hasn’t been shown to produce a benefit

A new global study from Canadian researchers suggests daily intake below 3,000 milligrams is associated with a 27% higher risk of death or serious cardiovascular event within nearly four years.  A report last year from the Institute of Medicine failed to find evidence that compliance with intake below 2,300 milligrams reduces risk of major problems from cardiovascular disease.

Court: Tesla Motors can sell directly to buyers
Posted: Sep 15, 2014 2:45 PM EST Updated: Sep 15, 2014 2:57 PM EST

BOSTON (AP) - The highest court in Massachusetts has thrown out a lawsuit aimed at blocking Tesla Motors from selling its electric cars directly to consumers.

The Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association had sought to prevent the direct sales, citing a state law designed to block car dealers from abuses by car manufacturers.

The Supreme Judicial Court unanimously ruled Monday that the association and two dealers - Herb Connolly Chevrolet and Fisker Norwood - didn't have legal standing to bring the case.

The court said Natick has since given Tesla a license to operate a sales office at the Natick Mall.

World's Largest Ice Sheets Melting At Fastest Rate Ever Recorded

Greenland and Antarctica are home to the two largest ice sheets in the world, and a new report released Wednesday says that they are contributing to sea level rise twice as much as they were just five years ago.

Using the European Space Agency's CryoSat 2 satellite, the Alfred Wegener Institute from Germany has found that western Antarctica and Greenland are losing massive amounts of ice.

"Combined, the two ice sheets are thinning at a rate of 500 cubic kilometres per year," said glaciologist Dr. Angelika Humbert, one of the authors of the AWI study, in a press release. "That is the highest speed observed since altimetry satellite records began about 20 years ago."

The report, published in the online magazine The Cryosphere, says the CryoSat 2 satellite measured over 200 million elevation data points in Antarctica and 14.3 million in Greenland to track the loss of ice mass over the last several years. "When we compare the current data with those from the ICESat satellite from the year 2009, the volume loss in Greenland has doubled since then," said Humbert. "The loss of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has in the same time span increased by a factor of three."

Somewhat encouragingly, the East Antarctic Ice Sheet is gaining mass. However, those gains are very modest and don't make up for the loss of ice in West Antarctica and Greenland. Greenland is losing 350 cubic kilometers of ice annually, mostly from its southwestern coast, and accounts for almost 75 percent of the total volume lost each year. Together, the flows from Antarctica and Greenland could cover the entire Chicagoland area with 600 meters of ice each year.

 


Vermont highlights more electric car chargers
Posted: Jul 07, 2014 10:41 AM EST Updated: Jul 07, 2014 10:41 AM EST

MIDDLESEX, Vt. (AP) - It's getting easier to drive an electric vehicle through Vermont between Montreal and Boston.

Top state officials and the head of the state's largest electric utility inaugurated a new vehicle charging station in Middlesex, halfway between the Canadian border and New Hampshire.

One of two stations can charge a car nearly full in 45 minutes.

Gov. Peter Shumlin says it's a big step toward the creation of an electric vehicle corridor between Montreal and Boston.

Officials say electric vehicles cost the equivalent of about a dollar a gallon to drive.

Access to a full network of charging stations is critical since many electric-only vehicles have a short range.

Currently there are 27 charging stations in Vermont with another 15 planned.

 

North Dakota's Latest Fracking Problem

North Dakota is forced to burn off 30% of the natural gas produced from fracking in the Bakken Shale as infrastructure and regulations struggle to keep pace with its oil boom.

Food-Waste Recycling Faces Hiccups

More states want to recycle their food waste instead of dumping it into landfills, but they have run into a snag: The infrastructure needed to turn huge quantities of table scraps into fertilizer or electricity isn't ready.

Tesla's Clever Patent Move Is Already Paying Off

Tesla may already be reaping the rewards of freeing up its patents.

Four days after CEO Elon Musk offered most of his company’s patents to rivals in hopes of cultivating a bigger electric car market, Nissan and BMW are “keen on talks” to cooperate on charging networks, the Financial Times reported on Sunday.

That pretty much validates why the Silicon Valley company freed up its patents in the first place: Tesla wants its superchargers to become the industry standard.

That way, other companies will use and enlarge Tesla's existing network of 97 charging stations that currently dot a path across the continental United States, making it more and more feasible to swap fuel-burning cars for battery-electric ones, even for long-distance travel.

White House Plans Another Big Climate Push

WASHINGTON -– One year after President Barack Obama rolled out his climate change action plan, the administration is putting fresh emphasis on its environmental agenda.

The White House plans to host two roundtable discussions this week on the economic threats that climate change poses and the "opportunities to overcome those risks," a White House official said in an email Monday night, which emphasized the potential costs of not addressing planet-warming emissions.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and White House leaders also plan to meet with billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer and former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson on Wednesday to discuss a report they will release this week titled, "Risky Business," which assess the economic costs of climate change. Steyer and Paulson are the co-chairs for the report.

Steyer, a former hedge fund manager turned environmental activist, has pledged to spend $100 million backing political candidates who support action on climate change through his political group, NextGen Climate Action. He has focused much of his political work on opposing the Keystone XL pipeline, which the Obama administration is considering for possible approval.

Lew, White House advisers John Podesta and Valerie Jarrett, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration head Kathryn Sullivan and Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate on Tuesday will meet with insurance industry representatives on climate impacts.

Obama himself will address the annual dinner of the League of Conservation Voters on Wednesday night. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz and Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell plan to speak earlier Wednesday at an event sponsored by the League of Conservation Voters. The group is the biggest electoral spender among environmental groups.

Weekend

Weekend Report: 'Fury' Topples 'Gone Girl,' 'Birdman' Soars in Limited Release
by Ray Subers
Fury


Brad Pitt's Fury was able to usurp first place from Gone Girl this weekend, though it was a closer race than anticipated.

Meanwhile, Birdman opened at four locations in New York and Los Angeles and scored one of the best per-theater averages ever for a live-action movie.

Opening at 3,173 theaters, Fury rolled in to first place this weekend with an estimated $23.5 million. This debut is in the same general ballpark as movies like Captain Phillips ($25.7 million), Act of Valor ($24.5 million) and The Monuments Men ($22 million). That's a fine range to be in, though it's a bit disappointing considering how far off it is from recent R-rated thrillers Gone Girl ($37.5 million) and The Equalizer ($34.1 million).

Sony's marketing played up Fury's intense tank-on-tank action, which made it a strong option among male moviegoers. Unfortunately, the movie never really connected with women, who wound up accounting for just 40 percent of the audience on opening weekend. It also struggled with younger moviegoers: the audience was 51 percent over the age of 35.

With an "A-" CinemaScore and very solid reviews (80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), Fury should hold up well in the coming weeks. A final total in the $70-to-$80 million range is likely.

Gone Girl had another strong hold in its third weekend: the David Fincher thriller eased 33 percent to an estimated $17.8 million. Over the weekend, it passed Fincher's last two movies (The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and has now earned $107.1 million total. The movie remains on track to finish with around $160 million.

In Reversal, Turkey to Open Passage to Syrian City

Turkey said it would allow Iraqi Kurdish fighters to cross its territory to reinforce the embattled Syrian city of Kobani, reversing its long-standing opposition to such aid hours after U.S. airdrops of weapons and ammunition.

U.S. Air Drops Arms To Kurdish Forces Fighting ISIS In Kobani

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military said Sunday it had airdropped weapons, ammunition and medical supplies to Kurdish forces defending the Syrian city of Kobani against Islamic State militants.

The airdrops Sunday were the first of their kind and followed weeks of U.S. and coalition airstrikes in and near Kobani, near the Turkish border. The U.S. said earlier Sunday that it had launched 11 airstrikes overnight in the Kobani area.

In a statement Sunday night, U.S. Central Command said U.S. C-130 cargo planes made multiple drops of arms and supplies provided by Kurdish authorities in Iraq. It said they were intended to enable continued resistance to Islamic State efforts to take full control of Kobani.

The airdrops are almost certain to anger the Turkish government, which has said it would oppose any U.S. arms transfers to the Kurdish rebels in Syria. Turkey views the main Kurdish group in Syria as an extension of the Turkish Kurd group known as the PKK, which has waged a 30-year insurgency in Turkey and is designated a terror group by the U.S. and by NATO.

President Barack Obama called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday to discuss the situation in Syria and notify him of the plan to make airdrops Sunday.

Ebola Vaccine Push Ramps Up

The world had little interest in Ebola in 1997, when cell biologist Nancy J. Sullivan took up her work. Today, Dr. Sullivan would likely be at the center of any potential answer to the world’s severest Ebola outbreak.

Obama To Ask Congress For Additional Funding To Fight Ebola: Report

President Barack Obama will ask Congress to approve additional funding to combat the growing Ebola outbreak in West Africa, possibly as soon as next week, according to Bloomberg News.

It is unclear what amount the president will seek or where the funds would come from. According to Bloomberg, the package could be moved on an "emergency" basis where it would not count toward the federal deficit, or simply be accounted using savings from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Friday that Obama has "not made any decisions about whether additional resources are necessary."

If he does decide to pursue additional funds, Obama may find unlikely support across the aisle. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky), who is facing re-election, said earlier this month that he would work with the administration on further efforts to address the crisis, which has caused more than 4,000 deaths in West Africa.

Nigeria's Ebola outbreak is officially over

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) -- The World Health Organization declared on Monday that Nigeria is free of Ebola, a rare victory in the months-long battle against the fatal disease.

Nigeria's containment of the lethal disease is a "spectacular success story," WHO Country Director Rui Gama Vaz told a news conference in Abuja, Nigeria's capital. Nigeria reported 20 cases of Ebola, including eight deaths. One of those who died was an airline passenger who brought Ebola to Nigeria and died soon after.

The WHO announcement came after 42 days passed - twice the disease's maximum incubation period - since the last case in Nigeria tested negative.

"The outbreak in Nigeria has been contained," Vaz said. "But we must be clear that we only won a battle. The war will only end when West Africa is also declared free of Ebola."

WHO said Nigeria had traced nearly every contact of Ebola patients in the country, all of whom were linked to the country's first patient, a Liberian man who arrived with symptoms in Lagos and later died.

For an outbreak to be declared officially over, WHO convenes a committee on surveillance, epidemiology and lab testing to determine that all conditions have been met.

Vaz warned that Nigeria's geographical position and extensive borders makes the country, Africa's most populous, vulnerable to additional imported cases of Eebola.

"Therefore there is need to continue to work together with states to ensure adequate preparedness to rapidly respond, in case of any potential re-importation," he said.

The disease continues to spread rapidly in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea and has claimed more than 4,500 lives.

JOHNSTON, R.I. (AP) - Republican Governors Association Chairman Chris Christie has said he won't aim resources at landslides or lost causes. His recent stop in Rhode Island for Allan Fung signals that he sees the Rhode Island governor's race as neither.

Christie has pledged to return to Rhode Island for Fung before November 4th.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A 2004 investigation report by Providence police says the department was marred by corruption and political influence when Buddy Cianci was mayor. The report was obtained by The Providence Journal. Among other things, it says promotions in the police department were connected to political donations to Cianci, who is running for mayor again this year as an independent.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The state Department of Environmental Management is getting a newly trained police dog.

Officials are searching for the men, who drove off in a silver Honda SUV.

      impunity
    audio pronunciation
    \im-PYOO-nuh-tee\

    DEFINITION

noun
: exemption or freedom from punishment, harm, or loss

    EXAMPLES

Penalties for breaking the law can be made harsher, but without extra funding for its enforcement, people will continue to violate it with impunity.

"Carlos Zarate, a congressman who sits on the Philippine House of Representatives' Human Rights Committee, said in an interview Tuesday that the arrest of General Palparan did not signal an end to the problem of security forces committing abuses with impunity." — Floyd Whaley, The New York Times, August 13, 2014

    DID YOU KNOW?

Impunity (like the words pain, penal, and punish) traces to the Latin noun poena, meaning "punishment." The Latin word, in turn, came from Greek poinē, meaning "payment" or "penalty." People acting with impunity have prompted use of the word since the 1500s, as in this 1660 example by Englishman Roger Coke: "This unlimited power of doing anything with impunity, will only beget a confidence in kings of doing what they list [desire]." While royals may act with impunity more easily than others, the word impunity can be applied to the lowliest of beings as well as the loftiest: "Certain beetles have learned to detoxify [willow] leaves in their digestive tract so they can eat them with impunity" (Smithsonian, September 1986).
