No eating in the library.

I like to cook and I work in a library. This will be about food and libraries. Also videogames.

A couple of years ago, when I was newly pregnant and reporting in the West Bank, some of my local colleagues insisted that I skip covering a protest at an Israeli checkpoint. At first, I was resistant to letting pregnancy stand in the way of my work, but they knew from experience that there might be tear gas, and tear gas, they said, causes miscarriages.

They were right: though rigorous studies are few, there is evidence that tear gas is an abortifacient. In 2011, Chile temporarily suspended its use after a University of Chile studylinked it to miscarriage and fetal harm. Investigating the use of tear gas in Bahrain in 2012, Physicians for Human Rights found that local doctors were reporting increased numbers of miscarriages in exposed areas. And UN officials have connected tear gas to miscarriages in the Palestinian territories.

This means it’s likely that police in Ferguson, Missouri, have been spraying abortion-causing chemicals on crowds of civilians. Recently at TheNation.com, Dani McClain wrote about the killing of black youth as a reproductive justice issue, one that goes to the heart of the rights of parents to raise their children in peace, safety and dignity. She’s correct, of course, but if the anti-abortion movement were actually concerned about the well-being of the unborn, then the violence in Ferguson would be a pro-life issue as well.

jesus fuck

It just gets worse and worse

When Larry Lessig used a clip from “Lisztomania” by the French band Phoenix in a lecture, he was pretty sure that it was fair use — after all, he’s written several books on copyright and teaches at Harvard Law. But Liberation Music, who claim the license to the song, had the video of Lessig’s…

This story is gold

The LAPD swears they’ve had Scott Weiland in custody for a month, and it’s totally not him. Their defense is basically, “well it looks just like him!” You should click through and read, it’s hilarious.
