There’s reviewing a new phone, and then there’s living with a phone for an extended period of time, which is what I — excuse me, “we” — have had the chance to do in the few months since the iPhone X and the Pixel 2 started shipping. via Pocket

His mothers are obviously in love and totally married in everything but name, so why is Henry the only one in their house who knows this? His moms don't even seem to have noticed that Mom kisses Emma on the cheek every morning when she leaves for work.

Every. Single. Morning.

And when your fairytale is through. - Werepirechick - The Shape of Water (2017) [Archive of Our Own]
Once the police are done stripping Elisa’s apartment of items with ‘questionable origin’, the non-disclosure papers are signed, and a hefty ‘goodwill’ sum deposited in Giles’s bank account, he’s not entirely sure what to do with himself.

It’s been only a few days, hardly a week, and he’s already starting to feel suffocated by the quiet of his apartment.

Which makes the sound of a swift and polite knock on his door all the more surprising.

Infamous Google memo author shot down by Federal Labor Board • Arc Technica
Sam Machkovech:
<p>The National Labor Relations Board <a href="">published its memo</a> this week, which was issued in January after Damore filed a charge against his former employer on August 8. In spite of Damore withdrawing his NLRB filing in September, the board proceeded to examine and issue its own ruling:

Google "discharged [Damore] only for [his] unprotected conduct while it explicitly affirmed [his] right to engage in protected conduct." The NLRB emphasized that any charge filed by Damore on the matter should be "dismissed."

In explaining the board's reasoning, NLRB member Jayme Sophir points to two specific parts of the controversial memo circulated by Damore in August: Damore's claim that women are "more prone to 'neuroticism,' resulting in women experiencing higher anxiety and exhibiting lower tolerance for stress" and that "men demonstrate greater variance in IQ than women."

Sophir describes how these gender-specific claims resemble other cases decided by the NLRB that revolved around racist, sexist, and homophobic language in the workplace. She says that specific Damore statements were "discriminatory and constituted sexual harassment, notwithstanding [his] effort to cloak [his] comments with 'scientific' references and analysis, and notwithstanding [his] 'not all women' disclaimers. Moreover, those statements were likely to cause serious dissension and disruption in the workplace."
The NLRB memo also includes a quote from Google's letter of termination given to Damore in August, which Sophir says focused specifically on offending, fireable content while also protecting other portions of his speech:
I want to make clear that our decision is based solely on the part of your post that generalizes and advances stereotypes about women versus men. It is not based in any way on the portions of your post that discuss [the Employer’s] programs or trainings, or how [the Employer] can improve its inclusion of differing political views. Those are important points. I also want to be clear that this is not about you expressing yourself on political issues or having political views that are different than others at the company. Having a different political view is absolutely fine. Advancing gender stereotypes is not.

I'm sure that will be the end of it 🙄 But of course not. Jordan Peterson has tweeted that it's the end for science. Google's HR made a subtle distinction in its dismissal, and Damore might not be able to get around that. But every cause needs its martyr.
