New York City's Health Department Calls Criminal Justice System A Health Risk
“What New York is doing is smart — people don’t often see how the health care system and criminal justice are interlinked,” University of Georgia sociologist Sarah Shannon, who studies the health effects of incarceration on prisoners and families, said. “But especially in our era of mass incarceration, there has been a lot of evidence they have to affect each other.”

The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene estimates around 577,000 people, 9% of New Yorkers, have been physically threatened or abused by the police. Overall, 29%, roughly 1.9 million people, report even being stopped, frisked, or questioned by the police.

Those people have higher rates of heart disease, diabetes, drug abuse, and mental illness, warns the department, which is starting a new public health campaign focused on educating health care workers about chronic health conditions linked to these patients. Around 27% of those formerly incarcerated, for example, reported poor mental health, compared with 13% among the never incarcerated (the national rate for mental illness is 19%). And 29% of those reporting threats or abuse by the police had poor physical health, compared with 12% of those who hadn’t.

Facebook Is Giving Advertisers Access to Your Shadow Contact Information
They came up with a novel way to detect whether that information became available to advertisers by looking at the stats provided by Facebook about the size of an audience after contact information is uploaded. They go into this in greater length and technical detail in their paper.

They found that when a user gives Facebook a phone number for two-factor authentication or in order to receive alerts about new log-ins to a user’s account, that phone number became targetable by an advertiser within a couple of weeks. So users who want their accounts to be more secure are forced to make a privacy trade-off and allow advertisers to more easily find them on the social network. When asked about this, a Facebook spokesperson said that “we use the information people provide to offer a more personalized experience, including showing more relevant ads.” She said users bothered by this can set up two-factor authentication without using their phone numbers; Facebook stopped making a phone number mandatory for two-factor authentication four months ago.

The researchers also found that if User A, whom we’ll call Anna, shares her contacts with Facebook, including a previously unknown phone number for User B, whom we’ll call Ben, advertisers will be able to target Ben with an ad using that phone number, which I call “shadow contact information,” about a month later. Ben can’t access his shadow contact information, because that would violate Anna’s privacy, according to Facebook, so he can’t see it or delete it, and he can’t keep advertisers from using it either.

Contacts for Mac: Import contacts
You can import contacts from other computers or apps as files in a variety of file types—for example, vCard (with the extension .vcf), archive (.abbu), LDAP Data Interchange Format (.ldif), or a tab-delimited or comma-separated value (.csv) text file.

Import from a vCard file (.vcf)
Do one of the following:

Double-click the vCard file.

Drag the vCard file to the sidebar or the list of contacts in the Contacts window.

In Contacts, choose File > Import, then select the vCard file.

Import from an archive file (.abbu)
Important: Importing an archive file replaces your current contact information.

Choose File > Import.

Select the archive file, then click Open.

Import from other file types
Note: Before you import a tab-delimited or CSV file, use a text editor (such as TextEdit) to confirm the file is formatted correctly:

Remove any line breaks within a contact’s information.

Make sure all addresses have the same number of fields. Add empty fields as needed.

Make sure fields are separated by a tab (in a tab-delimited file) or a comma (in a CSV file), instead of another character. Don’t include spaces before or after the tabs or commas.

In Contacts, choose File > Import, select the file, change the encoding if necessary, then click Open.

If you’re importing a text file, review the field labels.

If the first card contains headers, make sure the headers are correctly labeled or marked “Do not import.” Any changes you make to this card are made to all cards in the file. To not import the headers card, select “Ignore first card.”

To change a label, click the arrows next to the label and choose a new label. If you don’t want to import a field, choose “Do not import.”

TidBITS: Making the Most of Contacts in Mavericks
Mac OS X’s Contacts application, formerly known as Address Book, receives a fair amount of criticism for being too simplistic. At first glance, this criticism seems true, but as you delve into the program, you discover it has a surprising level of depth, as well as tight integration into the Apple ecosystem.

Let’s take a look at how to modify the Contacts interface to your liking, manage your contacts, work with contact information, and examine utilities that make up for its shortcomings.

Customize the Template -- The first thing you should do is customize the available fields that Contacts offers on its contact cards. By default, only a handful of fields show when you edit a contact, and while you can easily add fields to any individual card, you might want to add the fields you use most often to Contacts’ template so these fields are available on all your contact cards.

CRM on the Mac | ubercool
“We’re all salesman” is one famous adage of the successful. That’s why it’s imperative that you always maintain your contacts in perfect order. While we love our MacBooks and iOS gear, we’ve often wondered why CRM is so challenging on the Mac platform.
A large part of the blame lies with Apple itself. While Apple continues to innovate in many areas, it’s clearly not devoting sufficient resources to the MacOS platform and that clearly shows from its lackluster, but free, contact management tool, Contacts.
