Another attack in the London Bridge area:

London Bridge: People 'injured' after stabbing - BBC News

The initial alert was "shots heard" ... but this is Britain ... the shots were fired by the police. It's a "major incident" but there is not much on the nature of the incident yet.

Utah police find body of dead woman's husband in freezer - BBC News

From the linkBut officers inspecting the home found a man's body in the deep freezer. He was later identified as the woman's husband, Paul Edwards Mathers, 69. Police in the town of Tooele, west of Salt Lake City, say he may have been in the freezer for years. [...] "We are suspecting anywhere from a year and a half to 11 years," Sgt Hansen is quoted as saying. "We truly don't know at this point how long he had been in the freezer."

There was a murderer among the civilian responders in London. Fairly gruesome incident it was.

Not a coincidence, the convicted murderer and the would-be terrorist were both on a prisoner release scheme rehabilitation meeting. As were the two victims who died (they worked or volunteered on the scheme).

Teenager pleads guilty to throwing child off Tate Modern balcony | UK news | The Guardian

This is the case from August you might have heard about. The 6-year-old French child survived but with serious injuries.

Some thoughts
(1) What is the opposite of nominative determinism? "Bravery" :hmph:
and
(2) I can't link to the image but this just cements my bias against people whose eyebrows meet in the middle
however
(3) The guy does seem to have some genuine mental health issues (autism plus other conditions), but I can't work out from the article if that's a complete explanation, or more a defence concocted by lawyers.

Autism is a developmental disorder, not a mental health issue, but he must have a mental illness of some sort too.

I heard about this, and the first thing I thought was, "well, this is a shitty idea."
...and that was before the head of the project defended taking $ from Epstein.

A Genetic Dating App Is a Horrifying Thing That Shouldn't Exist - VICE

Quote:
In other words, it’s a dating app for eugenics—the disturbing ideological practice of systematically discriminating against people based on genetic qualities judged to be undesirable or inferior.

The app is being developed by a team of geneticists led by George Church, who, in the same interview, defended accepting money for his lab donated by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

:fixed:

I can't even work out why they put that subheading that way round. The article is explicitly about the finding that it's unconstitutional. Even for people who might want to deny race as a factor, or even the existence of racism (the "I'm not racist but" people), the race factor is not a surprise and not new.
