In the EU, VW has not admitted wrongdoing or liability and it continues to resist claims for compensation © Reuters Jane Croft in London and Patrick McGee in Frankfurt January 28, 2018 Almost 60,000 people have signed up so far to sue German carmaker Volkswagen Group over its emissions scandal in what is shaping up to be one of the biggest group actions to come before London’s High Court. VW is facing litigation in the UK — and in other jurisdictions — in the wake of claims that it manufactured and sold cars with diesel engines that failed to comply with EU legislation on emissions. The carmaker installed “defeat devices” — a software device that artificially lowered nitrogen oxides (NOx) during testing — in 11m diesel cars sold between 2008 and 2015. These included 1.2m cars sold in the UK under the Volkswagen, Seat, Audi and Škoda brands. The High Court will be asked to approve an application by law firms Your Lawyers and Slater ...

Perfectionism among teens is rampant (and we’re not helping)

by nisse lind on Jan 28, 2018


I’ve spent the last two years talking with parents about the unprecedented stress and anxiety plaguing their adolescents — nearly half of whom, according to recent studies of college students, report feeling “overwhelmed by all I had to do.” Our conversations often end with parents expressing a mournful wish: “I just want her to be happy,” they tell me. “But she puts so much pressure on herself.” As parents, we say this phrase from a place of good intention. We want to signal to our children that we don’t need or expect them to be perfect, and that we will love them no matter what. Yet the very phrasing of the statement — “on herself” — lays blame for distress at the feet of our teens, rather than a culture that is stoking the flames of their anxiety. It puts the onus for change on kids – just chill, we seem to be saying, and you’ll be okay! – letting the rest of us off the hook, even as we ... Continue reading →

by nisse lind on Jan 28, 2018


Walmart is being sued by a customer alleging racial discrimination.  The customer who has filed a lawsuit against the retailer claims that it is segregating products by the race of the people who use them, CBS Los Angeles reported. Essie Grundy was shopping for a comb in her local store when she found it was locked in a cabinet. "That's when I noticed that all of the African-American products were locked up under lock and key," Grundy told reporters at a news conference on Friday, according to CBS. Walmart said in a statement that it does "not tolerate discrimination of any kind."  "We're sensitive to this situation and also understand, like other retailers, that some products such as electronics, automotive, cosmetics and other personal care products are subject to additional security. Those determinations are made on a store-by-store basis using data supporting the need for the heightened measures," a Walmart spokesperson said. Other ... Continue reading →

by nisse lind on Jan 28, 2018

Prof brings Latin American novels to an English-speaking audience

by nisse lind on Jan 28, 2018


UO Spanish professor Amalia Gladhart has several book recommendations she wants to share to help deepen people’s understanding of world literature — if only they weren’t written in Spanish.
