Golden State Killer and DNA privacy

I am thrilled that he was caught, but could the attorneys or law enforcement here comment on the issue of DNA ancestry privacy.

Source: Fox News

The Sacramento County District Attorney's Office said Thursday that investigators used DNA from a crime scene years ago and compared it to other DNA samples from family history websites which users send their DNA to in order to learn more about their ancestry.

The district attorney's office "explored online family trees that appeared to have matches to DNA samples from the East Area Rapist's crimes," The Sacramento Bee reported. "They then followed clues to individuals in family trees to determine whether they were potential suspects."


Would love to have $1 for every time I have heard "unprecedented" lately. What's your word?

When Trump turns a policy event into a campaign rally, can we tax payers get a refund?

"Seven Neurotic Styles of Management"

"A neurotic managerial style has undesirable consequences for individuals, teams, and the organization.

Often out of fear and opportunism, employees adopt and mimic the neurotic styles of their managers and influential leaders. In such settings, the work culture sooner or later becomes neurotic and toxic. In toxic cultures, people experience a broad range of unproductive feelings of helplessness, distrust, defensiveness, anger, apathy, and even depression. When habitually neurotic employees are advanced to key leadership positions, it is inevitable that people and organizations will suffer. People in such cultures feel trapped and uncertain about their futures and careers. They resort to behaviors that are unproductive for themselves and their organization. Employees subjected to neurotic managerial styles often experience stress and lowered quality of work life. Some eventually leave otherwise acceptable jobs and work environments to be rid of the abuse."

Read about the seven styles from the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School in the link below.


Which style(s) apply to this administration?

60 Minutes should air the Stormy Daniels story early and without warning.

Maybe not as good for ratings but better for the country.

Go back to your district...

Advice to all legislators up for reelection:

1. Go to your district and have numerous meetings with your constituents.
2. Don't make the meetings about you.
3. Listen to concerns and take notes.
4. Formulate a plan of action from notes. The plan that got you elected before is out of date.
5. Report back to constituents with a concrete plan of action that is tailored to your district.
6. Act and report back frequently.

He is stalling for time.

Trump is postponing his inevitable ouster to make a favorable (in his mind) impact on history. He wants to be remembered for fulfilling his campaign promises. It doesn't matter how ill advised or just plain ignorant they were. He also needs as much time as possible to fill his bank accounts and those of his children. Ride the ride as long as possible.

Traditions, Norms and Unwritten Rules

I have lost count of the number of times the word "unprecedented" has been used by the news media to describe the actions of this administration. What can be done to make the traditions, norms and unwritten rules of behavior that in the past have guided our democracy into actual requirements with accountability?
