Yesterday, I dropped the girlchild off at Georgetown for a summer program in international diplomacy (my child’s do-gooder heart has designs on the larger world, so off she goes to work on issues of human conflict and whatnot)–this meant lots of family time this weekend and very little surfing. Let’s face it–here in the US, the news continues to be pretty bleak. Honestly, living in DC is more of a circus than it’s ever been; I don’t even need to leave my neighborhood to be reminded of it right now. Sasha and I continue to support efforts of organizations like RAICES (BTW, for those of you in the San Antonio area, they hold educational sessions every Tuesday to volunteer with their organization, if you’d like to donate time). There’s a good chance we will be at the march on Saturday with hundreds of thousands of like-minded people. Not sure what more we can do right now but put dollars behind the work being done and make sure our voices are heard.
Also, a bit of news: there will be a new item for purchase in the FHO store this week (I hope). I am crossing fingers because I must rely on outside assistance to make that happen, so my hope is that happens quickly, and you will see it posted in the next couple days. Bruising is the next topic. It will be the same price as the other ($4.99), digital download, and about the same length. Feel free to make an offering to the internet gods, we’ll see how long it takes to go live.
And with that, here’s what’s caught my eye since last we spoke:
Hey Winnipeg, I see you 🙂
Smart homes have become tools of digital abuse
What closing the door on the asylum process would mean for some of our patients
Flight attendants need training on sexual abuse and harassment response because the numbers are climbing
The randomness of bail
Many of you have shared this, and although I am not a Texas voter, I am so impressed with this ad (and with her story), it’s worth space here. Just because you can’t vote for her, doesn’t mean you can’t support here campaign:
Our first offering in the FHO store, Injury Following Consensual Sex is now available. If you haven’t ordered a copy yet, you can find it here. And coming soon–the follow-up research brief on bruising, out at the end of the month!
