Re: “EXTENDED PLAY: An interview with Genevieve DeGuzman about the benefits of Coworking

Great interview! Coworking is definitely a growing phenomenon and not ready to slow down any time soon. It's been so positive in the ways it has helped small businesses develop themselves by providing them with a not-so-expensive office where collaboration is inspiring. I found a blog which centers around the coworking/startup world, they recently published 2 interviews with founders of coworking spaces. Very interesting, check it out here: http://www.shareyouroffice.com/blog-syo/

Re: “Isolation Row

Torture. Sadistic, immature, bullies with badges and Tazers and guns, but no training to de-escalate situations, empathize, as with the responsive mentally-ill inmates deposited in jails and prisons in lieu of treatment and plans to mitigate problem behaviors prior to re-releasing the suffering back into society.

Honor, integrity, restraint, empathy, respect for humanity, civil liberties, life, are abundantly rare in law enforcement. Screening new applicants for law enforcement jobs ignores "character" and "ethics" and training could be summed up as "We, the Blue Badges, are brothers and sisters. It's us against the citizens. all shady criminals where our infidelities and vices are just products of the stress of a dangerous job. At all times, remember, back your fellow law enforcement officer, get your stories straight, lie and fudge if needed to justify anything and everything your eyes witnessed or your ears heard, sympathy and reflection are weakness. You are part of a team. A gang. Everyone up and down the chain including the District Attorney and FBI and Internal Affairs...has your back. You are better than the riff-raff which is why you have a badge and a gun and a license to kill. And your culture doesn't just disdain officers snitching on fellow officerrs, it resolutely demands lying to cover the lies of your colleagues. Best of all, you will be rewarded for lying, and never held accountable. When I grow up, I want to be in law enforcement. Now hand over your lunch money.

Re: “Teachable Moment

Wall Street vs CA schools budget. Confused by the comparison. The governor has a $6B surplus, march in Sac first. Stop focusing on observers and start negotiating the salaries since the contract isn't even up yet. You'd get 2.5% now and likely another 2.5% in June if you'd get to the table. You're harming yourselves over principle (right or wrong).
