TL;DR: In this paper, a four-level model of clinical inferences to analyze the psychological evaluation process in custody matters is proposed, and a model for what clinicians can ethically say to courts is proposed.
Abstract: This article proposes a four-level model of clinical inferences to analyze the psychological evaluation process in custody matters. At each level the authors summarize the status of the relevant psychological literature and conclude that, as clinicians respond to the ultimate issues (e.g., who should be the custodial parent) the empirical foundation for such conclusions is tenuous or non-existent. A jurisprudence argument is also made that such opinions should be routinely excluded from the fact-finding process. Given the significant potential for specific custody recommendations to limit personal liberties and the trajectory of a child's life, the paucity of relevant research available in this area, and profound evidentiary issues, such recommendations should be viewed as ethically inappropriate. A model for what clinicians can ethically say to courts is proposed.

TL;DR: The persistence of race and the failures of equality jurisprudence, in terms of that libidinal economy, are discussed in this article, and a potential goodbye to all that.
Abstract: Symposium: Citizenship and Its Discontents: Centering the Immigrant in the International Imagination.Race is a form of pleasure. Race is racism, it can be nothing else, and there is nothing in race other than the pleasure it occasions. Indeed, race-pleasure is the defining pleasure of our time. Law's order is the extension of this sadomasochistic pleasure across time and space. “Sadistic” because race, for whites, is the pleasure of causing injury. “Masochistic” because race, for blacks in a non-revolutionary situation, is the pleasure of the injury. S/M requires two classes; one on top and the other on the bottom, and both tethered to a libidinal economy of suffering and being made to suffer. This article describes the persistence of race, and the failures of equality jurisprudence, in terms of that libidinal economy. Within this colonial relation the black is made to labor on itself to produce from its alienated subjectivity the race-pleasure that makes whiteness and blackness seem real. This article also describes a potential goodbye to all that.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors examine two distinct processes in choosing to attack soft targets: the one-time decision to begin attacking soft targets and the continued use of violence against such targets.
Abstract: What factors may lead a terrorist organization to attack undefended and unaware civilians—or as we style them, “soft targets”? We examine two distinct processes in choosing to attack soft targets: the one-time decision to begin attacking soft targets and the continued use of violence against such targets. Our analysis points to ideology—specifically religion—as the decisive factor in turning to target civilians, while organizational factors such as group size and network centrality are related to the number of incidents perpetrated.

TL;DR: Most medical school TSs do not support provision of reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities as intended by the ADA, and further study is needed to understand how schools operationalize TSs and barriers to achieving ADA standards.
Abstract: PurposePhysician diversity improves care for underserved populations, yet there are few physicians with disabilities. The authors examined the availability of technical standards (TSs) from U.S. medical schools (MD- and DO-granting) and evaluated these relative to intent to comply with the Americans

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors observed infants and their caretakers in suburban malls to see if clothing normally provides such cues; 90% of the infants were dressed in sex-typed clothes.
Abstract: Labeling an infant as a boy or girl affects behavior toward the infant. While intimates know a baby's sex label and behave consistently to the baby, strangers cannot unless given a cue. Forty-eight infants and their caretakers were observed in suburban malls to see if clothing normally provides such cues; 90% of the infants were dressed in sex-typed clothes. Girls wore or carried pink (75%), yellow, ruffles, puffed sleeves, and/or dresses. Boys wore blue (79%) and/or red. Observers were able to correctly guess the sex of “labeled” infants only. Surprisingly, simultaneous caretaker interviews revealed that parents do not spontaneously mention sex as a factor in clothing choice, nor do they feel they would be very bothered by strangers' mistaking the infant's sex.
