Rand Paul thinks poor moms should be punished for being poor

Eugenics and Final Solution anyone? Rand Paul often does not know when to stop but the right-wing racists who really like him – know what’s in his heart – support “superior” people and suppress “inferior” people – Rand gets to define which is which… His next book? My Struggle!

The Republican party has a war on women and it’s not only about cutting access to reproductive rights: it’s comments like these, in which Paul advocates economic punishment for women who have what he thinks is too many kids. No matter what spin they put on it, they can’t escape the reality that this is what they do now: they punish poor moms for being poor, and for being moms.

Defending people’s milk in India — New Internationalist

‘We take care of the cow and the cow takes care of us,’ says Marayal, a farmer in Thalavady, Tamil Nadu. Her two cows produce 6 to 10 litres of milk a day, which she sells for 30-40 cents per litre.

Across India, there are millions of backyard dairy farmers like Marayal. Each owning just one or two cows, these farmers supply millions more families and hundreds of thousands of informal milk parlours and tea stalls across India. These small unregistered operations prefer to buy milk directly from backyard dairy farmers, who supply fresh milk at the lowest price.

University students run successful campus-wide fruit business through WeChat: Shanghaiist

Says Du of his decision: \”Before I opened my shop, I was always paying attention to the evolution of public accounts on WeChat. I could see that Tencent really valued them. Public accounts were becoming more open and you could upgrade them. Its API was open as well. Taobao is already too saturated – it’s hard to penetrate and there are a lot of fakes and advertisements. WeChat is a bit more agile. A small entity can still have its own brand. So when I thought the timing was right, I started Weiguofang.\”

Large companies such as McDonalds and 7-11 are no strangers to using WeChat to pimp their wares, but now it seems even the smallest-scale businesses are cashing in on the service as well. We figure it won\’t be long before the stinky tofu hawker and the chuanr guy follow suit.

US bans students from “blacklisted” countries from getting a free education

dumb – does not accomplish much of anything except make US look bad.

I’m following a Coursera course entitled “Constitutional Struggles in the Muslim World” and just received a rather odd email. All students from Syria, Sudan, Iran and Cuba will no longer be able to access Coursera. As some of you may know, Coursera is an online website that offers free courses from many of the world’s top universities.

Here’s the email, which can also be viewed on the Course’s main page.

Dear AllI write this email under protest and with a considerable degree of anger and sadness. Few things illustrate the bone-headedness, short-sightedness, and sheer chauvinism of the political structure of the United States better than the extent to which…
