Catherine is a happy novelist, but a little strapped for cash, so the six-week job at computer software company Create and Conquer is a welcome chance to make some extra money. She meets the CEO, Lance MacCallan, on her very first day. He’s gorgeous, rich, admired by all around him, and a total bully.

But it’s not the attacks on her competence or the threats to fire her that have Catherine rattled. No, it’s when the CEO starts trying to convince her to go out with him that things get really unpleasant.

I just read a paper by an academic who is attempting to prove that there are stifling and abusive hierarchies within the learning environment, which I agree with. She writes of experimenting with this theory with a very badly-planned - unplanned seems the better description - multi-week course in which she emotionally manipulated the students and freaked out when they made choices she didn't agree with. When she did something wrong, she blamed it on her legal training and said, "All lawyers do this." Well, I didn't, and the partners of the firm I worked for would have taken a strip off me if I had. When the poorly planned course jumped off the rails, she blamed the students for not wanting to take responsibility for their own learning and being too accustomed to authority. Or something. This writer is greatly admired.

So I guess I'm the crazy person here.

But seriously, how can any teacher use the "I'm not going to speak until someone else does" stunt and deny that it's a power play?

I'm going to have to keep my teeth clenched during the class, because the professor adores her.

I can't understand how anyone can listen to the same music for hours night after night. My god.

I want to talk to them, but not by myself, so I'm going to put up a sign under the mailboxes with my email address to see if anyone else is disturbed and if they're willing to go with me. I'd rather try that before making any reports to the government.

Let me know if you think that's a stupid idea.

Trigger Warning for Discussion of Rape [Nov. 22nd, 2015|11:32 am]
In sexual assault trials in Canada, there is no lawyer participating in the trial who represents the victim's interests. The defense attorney represents the defendant. The Crown Attorney represents the interests of the state, which are in no way identical to the interests of the victim. For example, the interest of the Crown Attorney may be wanting to get the case over with quickly due to personal distaste. While a victim who is lucky enough to afford a lawyer can have one to advise her on how to handle herself on the stand and tell her what various things mean, that lawyer doesn't get to speak in the trial, doesn't get to cross-examine anyone.

Well fuck.

This apartment has been very quiet since I moved in. A dog barking once in a while, some stomping around in the apartment above me, and the construction next door, but nothing excessive and nothing I couldn't ignore.

Then the construction stopped.

Last night, I heard that aggravating thump-thump-thump every single dance song ever written has starting at about eleven, and it never quit. I moved into another room to get some sleep. I was hoping it was a one-off party, it being Friday night.

Then, around 10:30 this morning, it started up again. I went out. I came back. It started again at 5:00 and is still going on now. Assuming that it had to be the apartment above me, which is the only apartment right next to me, I went up the stairs. Except I couldn't hear the music on the stairs. I went right to their door and listened. I could hear talking, and their tv - the first time I've ever heard tv in the hall - but not the music. With dread, I went outside.

Someone has moved into the building next door, the building that had been under construction. It isn't under my landlord's jurisdiction, and I don't think I can get into the building to rap on the new occupant's door. That building is set right against mine. I'm not even on the same floor as that apartment or condo or whatever it is. And I think the reason the tv is so loud on the second floor is because they're trying to drown out the sound, too.

If this is how it's going to be from now on, I'm going to go nuts.

51 per cent of Canadians disagree with plan to accept Syrian refugees, poll shows ... [Nov. 20th, 2015|04:17 pm]
... but the poll looks like a joke.

That poll involved 909 people. Less than one thousand out of a population of nearly thirty-six million. That isn't anywhere near a sufficient sample size.

"Randomly selected" is a pretty meaningless term, especially if you don't know how people were contacted. Landline vs cell phone vs online poll will have an impact on who is most likely to answer.

Forum Research, who conducted the poll, is a private company that mostly does market research. Who hired them to do this research?

Whenever you hear the results of a study of any kind, you have to keep in mind:

- Who performed it?
- Who paid for it?
- How was it done?
- What was the sample size?

I didn't approach this item thinking it was bullshit. I approached it accepting the results and worried for the morality and decency of the Canadian population. Given this is a pathetic set up, I'm a little less worried.

Shame on the Toronto Star (which endorsed the NDP during the election) for giving this joke credibility.

Good News on the School Front [Nov. 20th, 2015|01:42 pm]
I just got back from a meeting with one of my professors. Not my supervisor. The other professors I have want to meet with their students to discuss their theses. To make sure no one's getting lost, I guess. Anyway, it was great. As someone who is a little intimidated by my lack of knowledge on Dworkin v Hart or the Marxist/utilitarian/consequentialist approach (those are all wildly different things, not synonyms) it is reassuring to hear that my different perspective on things is a breath of fresh air. He said my thesis proposal was the most focused he had seen in years, and he found my topic fascinating. He said he hadn't been able to stop thinking about it since reading it, which is a pretty awesome compliment.

He also said he would be happy to write a referral for me when I apply to the doctorate program. This guy is kind of a rock star in the legal world, has been everywhere and done everything on an international scale. I once asked him why he chose to settle in our little city, as he certainly could get a much bigger salary in a much more prestigious university in various countries. He simply said he liked it. Getting a referral from him is kind of a big deal.

Also, he said if I didn't get a good referral from my supervisor, whose referral I must have or I might as well not bother, he'd beat him up.

Unfortunately, my supervisor's interpretation of "hands-off" seems to be "being a ghost." I've already asked for two meetings and gotten no response at all. I'm caught between wanting to avoid being annoying, because I risk not getting a referral if I annoy him, and not being in a position to just let this slide.
