This piece was written by my fifth-grade students at the Bradwell School of Excellence in South Shore. They wrote this collaboratively as a counternarrative to the constant negative publicity their neighborhood receives as a result of gun violence. Writing was an opportunity for them to give voice to the humanity of their home. Here’s what they wrote. — Linsey Rose

Following a report of a man allegedly exposing himself and ejaculating onto a woman’s leg on a Brown Line train last week, conversations started swirling about personal experiences with either witnessing or being a victim of sexual harassment or indecent exposure on CTA trains and buses. The really weird part? It seems accepted by some as just another common occurrence on public transit.
the RedEye asks for women’s stories of being sexually harrassed on the CTA. A shit-ton of women respond. I’ve dealt with my fair share of men jerking of in front of me and butt-grabbing in the past 10 years I’ve lived here.

This episode is such a gift.
The Brook offers a full range of services to keep its residents healthy: social workers, security, a doctor and even an event planner.
And while these services don’t come without a cost — an apartment at The Brook runs at about $24,000 a year — Rosen says they are cheaper than the estimated $56,000 per year that the city spends on the emergency room visits and stays at shelters and jails, where many people with severe mental illness end up.”
[cw for domestic violence] Lisette Encarnacion, the woman profiled, used to a be a banker with a home and a husband and a son and another child on the way. Then her husband threw her off a balcony, leaving her with a traumatic brain injury. She became homeless for a decade, often having seizures and being taken to the ER.
This housing is an alternative to living under a bridge and going to the ER for all health needs. The fact that different agencies are bickering about who should fund it is embarrassing. It seems like a fantastic program that we need more of.(via disabilityhistory)
A student whose admission to Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences was revoked because he was deaf will start classes this fall, a federal judge ordered Tuesday.
The student, Zachary Featherstone, was accepted into the university’s College of Osteopathic Medicine in the spring of 2013, and began working with the university to figure out the logistics of his accommodation requests, according to emails obtained by Inside Higher Ed. The State of Washington Division of Vocational Rehabilitation agreed to cover the costs of his captioning and interpreting services if PNWU could not.
Saying that it needed more preparation time to prepare the accommodations, the university deferred Featherstone’s admission for a year. Then the university withdrew his acceptance altogether.
Just because you enjoyed reading by the ocean while sitting on a chair in the shade by yourself that one time doesn’t mean you should attempt to enjoy pretty much any other beach scenario.
The trans beach party would have been nice if I was a person who liked sand, the sun, or people I don’t already know.
The research team enrolled 104 participants of college age to a misinformation test and divided them into four groups.
For the first part of the test, a variety of photos showing a crime taking place was shown to two of the groups upon arrival at a laboratory late at night. One of the groups was allowed to sleep, while the other group was required to stay awake throughout the night.
The other two groups - one of which was allowed to sleep while the other was required to stay awake - reviewed the crime photos the morning after rather than the night before.
The next part of the experiment required all participants to read narratives of eyewitness statements that gave different information to what the crime photos showed. For example, one of the statements said a thief put a stolen wallet in the pocket of his pants, when the photo showed he put it in his jacket. Participants were then asked to recall what was shown in the photos.
The researchers found that the group who looked at the photos, read the narratives and attempted to recall the photos after staying awake all night, were more likely to say that the details in the narratives were present in the photos - indicating false memory formation.
However, the participants who looked at the photos prior to staying awake all night were found to be no more likely to report false memories than the groups that were allowed to sleep.
No fucking way.
THIS IS AN INTERESTING WAY TO PROMOTE A SUIT
I, for one, am delighted that “guy in sharp suit with hot women draped all over him” is being replaced by “guy in sharp suit with hot robots draped all over him”. Clearly much more tailored (hee!) to the discerning modern consumer of haberdashery.no idea what’s happening here, but I approve
The thing is tho, it’s not ‘hot robot draped over dude’
It’s ‘hot dude draped over robot’
Fuck yes it is. That’s the way to sell a fine piece of hardware to me, dammit.Are we not gonna mention the chain link headbord on the bed in the background?
