Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Theories of Welfare and Welfare Range Estimates, published by Bob Fischer on November 14, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. Key Takeaways Many theories of welfare imply that there are probably differences in animals' welfare ranges. However, these theories do not agree about the sizes of those differences. The Moral Weight Project assumes that hedonism is true. This post tries to estimate how different our welfare range estimates could be if we were to assume some other theory of welfare. We argue that even if hedonic goods and bads (i.e., pleasures and pains) aren't all of welfare, they're a lot of it. So, probably, the choice of a theory of welfare will only have a modest (less than 10x) impact on the differences we estimate between humans' and nonhumans' welfare ranges. Introduction This is the third post in the Moral Weight Project Sequence. The aim of the sequence is to provide an overview of the research that Rethink Priorities conducted between May 2021 and October 2022 on interspecific cause prioritization. The aim of this post is to suggest a way to quantify the impact of assuming hedonism on welfare range estimates. Motivations Theories of welfare disagree about the determinants of welfare. According to hedonism, the determinants of welfare are positively and negatively valenced experiences. According to desire satisfaction theory, the determinants are satisfied and frustrated desires. According to a garden variety objective list theory, the determinants are something like knowledge, developing and maintaining friendships, engaging in meaningful activities, and so on. Now, some animals probably have more intense pains than others; some probably have richer, more complex desires; some are able to acquire more sophisticated knowledge of the world; others can make stronger, more complex relationships with others. If animals systematically vary with respect to their ability to realize the determinants of welfare, then they probably vary in their welfare ranges. That is, some of them can probably realize more positive welfare at a time than others; likewise, some of them can probably realize more negative welfare at a time than others. As a result, animals probably vary with respect to the differences between the best and worst welfare states they can realize. The upshot: many theories of welfare imply that there are probably differences in animals' welfare ranges. However, theories of welfare do not obviously agree about the sizes of those differences. Consider a garden variety objective list theory on which the following things contribute positively to welfare: acting autonomously, gaining knowledge, having friends, being in a loving relationship, doing meaningful work, creating valuable institutions, experiencing pleasure, and so on. Now consider a simple version of hedonism (i.e., one that rejects the higher / lower pleasure distinction) on which just one thing contributes positively to welfare: experiencing pleasure. Presumably, while many nonhuman animals (henceforth, animals) can experience pleasure, they can't realize many of the other things that matter according to the objective list theory. Given as much, it's plausible that if the objective list theory is true, there will be larger differences in welfare ranges between many humans and animals than there will be if hedonism is true. For practical and theoretical reasons, the Moral Weight Project assumes that hedonism is true. On the practical side, we needed to make some assumptions to make any progress in the time we had available. On the theoretical side, there are powerful arguments for hedonism. Still, those who reject hedonism will rightly wonder about the impact of assuming hedonism. How different would our welfare range estimates be if we were to assume some other theory of welfare?

The Challenges with Measuring the Impact of Lobbying by Animal Ask, Ren Springlea Summary of a report by Animal Ask assessing if academic literature contains quantitative estimates that could be useful in gauging the counterfactual impact of lobbying. This requires breaking policy success into a baseline rate and counterfactual increase from lobbying. They found the answer is no - lobbying literature contains many well-known weaknesses, a systematic review found a strange result (narrow range around 50% success, possibly because there are often lobbyists on both sides of an issue), and only one study attempted to identify counterfactual impact (and only for one policy). The authors instead suggest using expert judgment and superforecasters. What matters to shrimps? Factors affecting shrimp welfare in aquaculture by Lucas Lewit-Mendes, Aaron Boddy Report by Shrimp Welfare Project on the importance of various factors for the welfare of farmed shrimps. Welfare can be measured via biological markers (eg. chemicals associated with immune or stress responses), behavior (eg. avoidance, aggression), physical condition and survival rates. The strongest evidence for harm to shrimp welfare was with eyestalk ablation, disease, stunning / slaughter, and insufficient dissolved oxygen or high un-ionized ammonia in the water. The authors have very high confidence that small to medium improvements in these would reduce harm to shrimp.

He will likewise help us to understand how modern black folks are kept within a racially justified psychological prison and how “black culture” has nothing to do with Africa but instead is a manufacture stereotype to further degrade black communities which were devastated far more after the 1960s than in the years immediately following the abolition of slavery.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: The Welfare Range Table, published by Bob Fischer on November 7, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. Key Takeaways Our objective: estimate the welfare ranges of 11 farmed species. Given hedonism, an individual's welfare range is the difference between the welfare level associated with the most intense positively valenced state that the individual can realize and the welfare level associated with the most intense negatively valenced state that the individual can realize. Given some prominent theories about the functions of valenced states, we identified over 90 empirical proxies that might provide evidence of variation in the potential intensities of those states. There are many unknowns across many species. It's rare to have evidence that animals lack a given trait. We know less about the presence or absence of traits as we move from terrestrial vertebrates to most invertebrates. Many of the traits about which we know the least are affective traits. We do have information about some significant traits for many animals. Introduction This is the second post in the Moral Weight Project Sequence. The aim of the sequence is to provide an overview of the research that Rethink Priorities conducted between May 2021 and October 2022 on interspecific cause prioritization—i.e., making resource allocation decisions across species. The aim of this post is to provide an overview of the Welfare Range Table, which records the results of a literature review covering over 90 empirical traits across 11 farmed species. Motivations If we want to do as much good as possible, we have to compare all the ways of doing good—including ways that involve helping members of different species. The Moral Weight Project's assumptions entail that everyone's welfare counts the same and that all welfare improvements count equally. Still, some may be able to realize more welfare than others. We're particularly interested in how much welfare different individuals can realize at a time—that is, their respective welfare ranges. An individual's welfare range is the difference between the best and worst welfare states the individual can realize at a time. We assume hedonism, according to which all and only positively valenced states increase welfare and all and only negatively valenced states decrease welfare. Given as much, an individual's welfare range is the difference between the welfare level associated with the most intense positively valenced state that the individual can realize and the welfare level associated with the most intense negatively valenced state that the individual can realize. In the case of pigs, for instance, that might be the difference between the welfare level we associate with being fully healthy on a farm sanctuary, on the one hand, and a botched slaughter, on the other. If there's variation in welfare ranges across taxa, then there's variation in the capacities that generate the determinants of welfare. So, if there's such variation and hedonism is true, then there's variation in the capacities that generate positively and negatively valenced experiences. As Jason Schukraft argues, we don't have any good direct measures of the intensity of valenced states that let us make interspecific comparisons. Indeed, we rely on indirect measures even in humans: behavior, physiological changes, and verbal reports. We can observe behavior and physiological changes in nonhumans, but most of them aren't verbal. So, we have to rely on other indirect proxies, piecing together an understanding from animals' cognitive and affective traits or capabilities. The Welfare Range Table includes over 90 such traits: some behavioral, others physiological; some more cognitive, others more affective. Then, it indicates whether the empirical literature provides reason to think that members of 11 farmed spec...

These 2 tasks are at odds with each other because establishing a therapeutic relationship entails honesty and a sense of safety that can be compromised if young people believe that what they need and deserve (potentially blockers, hormones, or surgery) can be denied them according to the information they provide to the therapist.” This excerpt strongly suggests she doesn't believe in the traditional gatekeeping role a mental-health clinician might play in a situation like this, helping to determine if a young person will benefit from transitioning.https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapediatrics/article-abstract/2504256Kids — sorry, sorry — “adolescents” — getting double mastectomies at 13 or 14https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29507933/“Suicide Attempts among Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Adults: Findings of the Naitonal Transgender Discrimination Survey.”https://williamsinstitute.law.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/Trans-GNC-Suicide-Attempts-Jan-2014.pdfn.b.: “Without such probes, we were unable to determine the extent to which the 41 percent of NTDS participants who reported ever attempting suicide may overestimate the actual prevalence of attempts in the sample.” And:Finally, it should be emphasized that the NTDS, like all similar surveys, captured information about suicide attempts, not completed suicide. Lacking any information about completed suicide among transgender people (due primarily to decedents not being identified by gender identity or transgender status), it may be tempting to consider suicide attempt data to be the best available proxy measure of suicide death. Data from the U.S. population at large, however, show clear demographic differences between suicide attempters and those who die by suicide. While almost 80 percent of all suicide deaths occur among males, about 75 percent of suicide attempts are made by females. Adolescents, who overall have a relatively low suicide rate of about 7 per 100,000 people, account for a substantial proportion of suicide attempts, making perhaps 100 or more attempts for every suicide death. 13 suicides per 100,000 in a GIDS samplehttps://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10508-022-02287-7Insanely high rate of 2.8% in a Belgian clinical samplehttps://biblio.ugent.be/publication/8706800/file/8707586.pdfT H E G U I D E L I N E SStewart: So these, the guidelines that you wrote, because you were responsible with the endocrine board for writing guidelines of care for endocrinology.Safer: The Endocrine Society, yesStewart: The endocrine society.Yes.Stewart: And that was based on, uh, research papers, data, the things that you saw.

Based on studies examining gender identity in minors, hormonal interventions may be considered before reaching adulthood in those with firmly established transgender identities, but it must be done with a great deal of caution, and no irreversible treatment should be initiated. Information about the potential harms of hormone therapies is accumulating slowly and is not systematically reported.

None described anything like the months-long assessments de Vries and her colleagues adopted in their research. At most of the clinics, a team of professionals – typically a social worker, a psychologist and a doctor specializing in adolescent medicine or endocrinology – initially meets with the parents and child for two hours or more to get to know the family, their medical history and their goals for treatment. They also discuss the benefits and risks of treatment options. Seven of the clinics said that if they don't see any red flags and the child and parents are in agreement, they are comfortable prescribing puberty blockers or hormones based on the first visit, depending on the age of the child. “For those kids, there's not a value of stretching it out for six months to do assessments,” said Dr Eric Meininger, senior physician for the gender health program at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. “They've done their research, and they truly understand the risk.”2020 Finnish studyhttps://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31762394/Those who did well in terms of psychiatric symptoms and functioning before cross-sex hormones mainly did well during real-life.

At 21, a surgeon replaced her deteriorated jaw joint. She's been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition. Her teeth are shedding enamel and cracking. None of it made sense to her until she discovered a community of women online who describe similar symptoms and have one thing in common: All had taken a drug called Lupron. Thousands of parents chose to inject their daughters with the drug, which was approved to shut down puberty in young girls but also is commonly used off-label to help short kids grow taller. The drug's pediatric version comes with few warnings about long-term side effects. It is also used in adults to fight prostate cancer or relieve uterine pain and the Food and Drug Administration has warnings on the drug's adult labels about a variety of side effects. More than 10,000 adverse event reports filed with the FDA reflect the experiences of women who've taken Lupron. The reports describe everything from brittle bones to faulty joints. In interviews and in online forums, women who took the drug as young girls or initiated a daughter's treatment described harsh side effects that have been well-documented in adults.Caroline Jemsbyhttps://www.journalismfund.eu/journalists/carolina-jemsbyGULDSPADENhttps://archive.ph/wip/GFuryClip in questionhttps://drive.google.com/file/d/1bL4WWMCs46dCKweZzz0gBj1AqE62k3oj/view?usp=sharingFull unlocked interview with JesseGLAAD is glad journalists are falling in linehttps://www.glaad.org/blog/jon-stewart-sets-record-straight-gender-affirming-carehttps://www.glaad.org/blog/john-oliver-explains-why-gender-affirming-care-is-so-importantBut sometimes nothttps://www.glaad.org/gap/jesse-singalJesse's response to the original version of his page (he hasn't yet responded to the new one, which went up after this, because life is short): The TikTok Doc yeets some teetshttps://www.nytimes.com/2022/09/26/health/top-surgery-transgender-teenagers.htmlWhoops:Dr. Gallagher of Miami said that she follows up with patients for up to a year. “I can say this honestly: I don't know of a single case of regret,” Dr. Gallagher said in May, adding that regret was much more common with cosmetic procedures. But one of her former top surgery patients, Grace Lidinsky-Smith, has been vocal about her detransition on social media and in news reports. “I slowly came to terms with the fact that it had been a mistake born out of a mental health crisis,” Ms. Lidinsky-Smith, 28, said in an interview.So basically, these clinicians are claiming top surgery has incredibly low regret rates, but they're simply not bothering to keep in touch with their patients. And one year is not very long for followup on this — if you give a kid top surgery at 15 or 16, one of the questions is whether, as their peers sexually develop and start families, they'll at some point wish they had breasts. It's a totally natural, important question, and you can't answer it if your patients are disappearing into the void just one year after you perform surgery on them.Age guidelineshttps://www.cdc.gov/hiv/policies/law/states/minors.htmlOliver: So the benefits of providing care are immense and the risks of withholding it are dire. A survey of around 28,000 trans people found that of those who wanted hormone therapy and didn't receive it 58% reported suicidal thoughts in a given year, which is why the three major professional associations of Child and Adolescent doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists have endorsed gender affirming care and condemned efforts to deny it. https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0261039This study is ridiculous and doesn't even show any correlation between access to hormones and improvement on the more serious suicide measures anywayOliver: You may have seen or heard from a small subset of people who D transitioned but it is worth noting such cases are rare and highly individualized. Studies show an average of just 2% of people who transition expressed regret. And the vast majority of those who have opted to detransition did so not because of changes in their gender identity but due to external factors such as stigma and lack of social support. Supposedly 1% - 2% regret ratehttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8099405/Lost to follow datahttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Yog0cUgVufxoTY64q-ll1wr7XcBhuqKD/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=102378063559486309340&rtpof=true&sd=trueOliver is relying not on a study of detransitioners, but on individuals who currently identify as transhttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8213007/Littman study of detransitionershttps://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34665380/Reasons for detransitioning were varied and included: experiencing discrimination (23.0%); becoming more comfortable identifying as their natal sex (60.0%); having concerns about potential medical complications from transitioning (49.0%); and coming to the view that their gender dysphoria was caused by something specific such as trauma, abuse, or a mental health condition (38.0%). Homophobia or difficulty accepting themselves as lesbian, gay, or bisexual was expressed by 23.0% as a reason for transition and subsequent detransition. The majority (55.0%) felt that they did not receive an adequate evaluation from a doctor or mental health professional before starting transition and only 24.0% of respondents informed their clinicians that they had detransitioned.  This is a public episode.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: What matters to shrimps? Factors affecting shrimp welfare in aquaculture, published by Lucas Lewit-Mendes on November 3, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. Shrimp Welfare Project (SWP) produced this report to guide our decision making on funding for further research into shrimp welfare and on which interventions to allocate our resources. We are cross-posting this on the forum because we think it may be useful to share the complexity of understanding the needs of beneficiaries who cannot communicate with us. We also hope it will be useful for other organisations working on shrimp welfare, and it's also hopefully an interesting read! The report was written by Lucas Lewit-Mendes, with detailed feedback provided by Sasha Saugh and Aaron Boddy. We are thankful for and build on the work and feedback of other NGOs, including Charity Entrepreneurship, Rethink Priorities, Aquatic Life Institute, Fish Welfare Initiative, Compassion in World Farming and Crustacean Compassion. All errors and shortcomings are our own. Executive Summary While many environmental conditions and farming practices could plausibly affect the welfare of shrimps, little research has been done to assess which factors most affect shrimp welfare. This report aims to assess the importance of various factors for the welfare of farmed shrimps, with a particular focus on Litopenaeus vannamei (also known as Penaeus vannamei, or whiteleg shrimp), due to the scale and intensity of farming (~171-405 billion globally per annum) (Mood and Brooke, 2019). Where evidence is scarce, we extend our research to other shrimps, other decapods, or even other aquatic animals. Further research into the most significant factors and practices affecting farmed shrimp welfare is needed. Conclusions from our review are summarised below: Eyestalk Ablation: Shrimps demonstrate aversive behavioural responses to eyestalk ablation, and applying anaesthesia before ablation has therapeutic effects. We believe this is strongly indicative that eyestalk ablation is a welfare concern. Disease: Infectious diseases cause significant mortality events. This is likely to both cause suffering prior to death and increase the total number of shrimps who are farmed and experience suffering. Stunning and Slaughter: Current slaughter practices (asphyxiation or immersion in ice slurry) are likely to be inhumane. While evidence on the optimal slaughter method for shrimps is limited, electrical stunning appears to be the most promising method to effectively stun and kill shrimps. Stocking Density: There is strong experimental evidence to suggest that reductions in stocking density indirectly improve welfare by improving water quality, reducing disease, and increasing survival. There is also some tentative evidence that stocking density directly impacts shrimp behaviour and measurable stress biomarkers (e.g. serotonin). Environmental Enrichment (EE): Environmental enrichments (e.g. feeding methods that mimic natural behaviours, hiding sites, different tank shapes and colours, plants, substrates, and sediments) probably improve shrimp survival, but there is little evidence on their impact on shrimp stress or behaviour. There is moderately strong evidence that physical enrichment (such as physical structure, plant, and substrate) improves welfare for aquatic animals, including crustaceans. Transport and Handling: Poor transport and handling practices are likely to lead to physical injury and stress, although research is limited on the welfare effects of current shrimp farming practices. Food: While some decapods appear resilient to lack of food, inadequate nutrition leads to risk of non-infectious disease and may lead to aggressive and abnormal behaviour. Water Quality Dissolved Oxygen (DO): Several studies indicate that insufficient DO levels increase mort...

"Yes, undocumented immigrants take jobs from working Americans. Here's the proof," an opinion piece in The Washington Post tells us. "Save our truckers, not affluent students seeking a free ride," pleads longtime Republican consultant Douglas MacKinnon in The Hill. "Biden's Student Debt Cancellation Robs Hard-Working Americans, Will Make Inflation Even Worse," proclaims a so-called Expert Statement from the Heritage Foundation. There's a warning we hear again and again, particularly from the Right: A policy that would actually help people must be stopped, because it'll harm the Working Man. According to demagogues like Tucker Carlson and JD Vance – as well as many of their more liberal counterparts – immigration, labor organizing, protest rights, and student debt cancellation simply can't be allowed, lest they harm hardworking, meat-and-potatoes plumbers and truckers. But these cynical admonitions disguise some very important truths. Progressive policies serve the interests of many of these plumbers and truckers, many of whom might want to organize their workplaces or have their debt relieved. And the supposed menaces of job-stealing immigrants or entitled lawyers who want others to pay off their loans aren't actually responsible for depressed wages or plummeting standards of living–corporations bolstered by U.S. policymaking are. On this episode, we examine the right-wing trope of ventriloquizing an imaginary “Working Man” in order to divert attention from policies that serve the corporate bottom line, We'll detail how this tactic obscures class dynamics between labor and capital, reinforces racist conceptions that harm workers of color, and ultimately suppresses the rights of all workers while absolving their employers of wrongdoing.

In this episode, Brenda Elsey, Lindsay Gibbs and Jessica Luther dissect Brett Favre's welfare fraud. But first, they talk about what occupation they would have if they weren't an historian and journalists. Then, they discuss how sports have defrauded the public, dissecting the most recent headline about former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre stealing millions from the Mississippi's welfare funds to build a volleyball stadium. They talk about how this story broken by a local investigative reporter, Anna Wolfe, on the poverty beat and how sports media often glosses over corrupt, fraudulent behavior of sports stars. They also discuss similar cases, including the construction of the Buffalo Bills Stadium being paid for largely by New York State taxpayers despite the Bills' owners being billionaires, and they ways Donald Trump used golf courses to facilitate his fraudulent acts. Following this discussion, they preview a special Patreon segment about the current 15 players for the National Spanish Women's Football Team who are on strike to try and oust their toxic coach. Then, you'll here a preview of this week's interview with Andrew Maraniss about his latest book Inaugural Ballers, which tells the story of the 1976 Women's Olympic Basketball team. Next, they burn some of the worst in sports this week on the Burn Pile. Then, they celebrate those shining light, including Torchbearers of the Week, all those who in Iran protesting the death of 22 year old Mahsa Amini, who died in police custody for allegedly violating hijab protocols. Several prominent athletes have joined university professors, government officials and other state employees in resigning, including taekwondo practitioner Mahsa Sadeghi, Olympic fencer Mojtaba Abedin and Sajjad Esteki, the captain of Iran's national handball team. They wrap up the show with What's Good and What We're Watching In Sports this week. This episode was produced by Tressa Versteeg. Shelby Weldon is our social media and website specialist.
