Attending a Research Culture Town Hall and "unconscious bias training" has come up in a survey question, so just leaving this here...

Prof Sloboda, of Iraq Body Count, joins others in offering first-hand evidence that Assange was scrupulous in redacting names. He 'resisted pressure from media partners [Guardian?] to speed up the process. Assange always meticulously insisted on redaction'

The American press has remained in denial for 40 years--since my case--that the Espionage Act has wording that could be aimed directly at them. Now they're staring down the barrel of that Act, which could be used against American journalists and publishers for doing journalism.

The UK government is torturing Julian Assange for exposing war crimes and prepared to ship him to the US where he’d likely die in prison, but refused to extradite the mass-murdering dictator Augusto Pinochet to Spain because it would’ve been “oppressive.”

Read this. The prosecution really did suddenly pivot from "We can prosecute Assange because he's a spy not a journalist" to "We can prosecute Assange because we can prosecute any journalist we want". Any news media who ignore this trial are telling you they don't do journalism.

Apart from this study with an obvious confound, what other research supports your claim for strong evidence? Do you not worry your characterization of the evidence is at odds with the conclusion from NRP, other meta-analyses, and Castle et al.'s interpretation of the literature?

The "Clackmannanshire study" that is always cited in support of synthetic phonics is fundamentally flawed in a way that explains why it is an outlier. This has been pointed out over and over again, but ignored. This is from Wyse and Goswami (2008). Is there other evidence?

You can see why the corporate media hated his guts, particularly his functioning heart and soul. 👏👏👏

One thing I ignored at first is a simple point: what is the prior that masks don't work? Why would they not reduce spread? I'm no expert but seems such a likely outcome. Or is the claim that people don't use them?

This is becoming more propaganda than anything else. Compare the first quote (from this document) to the second quote from Castles et al. (who are also proponents of systematic phonics). There really is no excuse for misrepresenting the science.

One of the greatest whistleblowers of the prior generation - Daniel Ellsberg, who revealed how the Pentagon under LBJ spent years lying to the US public about the Vietnam War - is now testifying in defense of WikiLeaks & Julian Assange, whom he's also seen as continuing his work:

Judge Baraitser refuses defence application to allow Daniel Ellsberg, WHO IS 89 YEARS OLD, to start his evidence at 3.15pm, which is 07.15 in California. She insists he must start at 2.30pm which is 6.30am for him. The court sent him the 350 page evidence bundle yesterday.

The state-corporate media is not 'broken' and it's not 'mainstream'. It serves the interests of power, as predicted by the propaganda model: The cosy links between leading journalists and politicians is a symptom of deep, underlying structural issues.

Like any political leader, Corbyn had his flaws. But the greatest threat to the established order is that history will remember him as a fundamentally decent, honest and principled leader who stood, and almost won, on a moderate platform of economic justice and climate renewal...

Sorry, I'm still unclear. With your SSP ramp, do you want to adopt the English style SSP instruction at the start or something else? If the English approach (with or without PSC), it seems reasonable to consider the results from over a decade of SSP in England.

The ramp is labeled with explicit phonics, and I think you are an advocate of bringing the PSC from England to Australia. Sorry I misunderstood. What you are proposing regarding explicit phonics that is different from the English approach? Not SSP? a modification of SSP?

Hi Pam, yes I raised the comparison to England because you want to adopt the English “ramp”. It therefore seems a reasonable question as to whether England have had more success than Australia in reading outcomes. You claim yes, and I ask you to cite the evidence for this.
