No one ever wants to read press releases, not even journalists, and especially not when the documents are dense corporate financial updates trying to make things sound rosy to investors no matter what. You can imagine, though, that these perfunctory releases might take on a whole other significance and value to someone interested in, say, insider trading. A series of both criminal and civil cases have been going on for months now to expose and potentially punish hackers and traders who used unpublished press releases to inform their trading and make big money.

If you do nothing, you accomplish nothing — that's true — but you also haven’t expended any time and resources in the process. But if you set out to overachieve and fail (which is what’s most likely to happen when you bite off too much), you’ve not only accomplished nothing (or close to nothing) but have used precious organizational time and resources doing so, which burns bridges and sours the organization on information management going forward — not to mention perhaps costing you and your team (and your consultants) their jobs.

It is not ‘freedom of the press’ when newspapers and others are allowed to say and write whatever they want even if it is completely false!” [@donaldjtrump Sunday on Twitter] 25 years ago in my stump speech on lawsuit reform I criticized Trump for his use of legal threats to silence critics. More reportage on that history, a familiar topic around here [Frances S. Sellers, Washington Post, earlier here, etc.]

Two guys in a Connecticut jail cell helped change the way America does drugs Business Insider. Dan K: “I think people need to understand crime better. Crime is not a byproduct or aberration, it’s as intrinsic to process (systems) as mutation and decay. One can’t remedy dysfunction if one can’t recognize its origins and its patterns. And moralizing is not at all helpful, shows a lack of intellectual rigor and of emotional depth.”
Healthy meals every day, and clean clothes – yes nutrition and clean clothes impact school attendance. Every child in America deserves safe public schools, good food, and clean clothes (and great teachers, libraries and librarians, music and art classes…) When did we stop considering this to be a right, not a Privilege? Via Care Counts (yes, sponsored by Whirlpool):
“Teachers around the country estimate that nearly one in five students struggle with access to clean clothes. This seemingly small barrier can have a significant impact on a student’s academic experience.

Embracing Future Workforce

Bench — more an aesthetic than erotic
Thrill, flesh now weak in different ways from when
He begged embrace and more, and lived
To tell about it. Over there, a starling
Struts and sparkles when the sun alights. "Wow,"
He thinks, "Nice to see at last what all along
You mostly never looked at." In The Park

How states use facial recognition to sniff out driver’s license fraud.
Deep learning makes it easy and cheap to scan millions of photos for duplicates and fraud, and since it doesn’t involve any extra data collection or access — you just need to find matching entries, not link them to an identity — privacy groups see it as one of the more benign forms of facial scanning. Forty-three of the 50 states have used some form of that technology, with seven of those states adopting the system for driver’s licenses in the last three years. (The holdouts are California, Missouri, Louisiana, Mississippi, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.) But while the scans are still limited, some worry those systems could be the first step toward something more troubling.
One of the driving forces behind the new DMV systems has been a new wave of federal requirements — and newly available federal money to meet those new standards. The RealID Act was passed in 2005 in response to the 9/11 Commission’s identification requirements — including the requirement that driver’s licenses be stored in digital form. States are still in charge of their own licenses, but if licenses don’t meet the new federal requirements, they’ll stop being valid for use in airports as early as 2018.
