Young Iranians Arrested for Recording Tehran Version of Pharrell Williams’s “Happy” (WTF)

Posted by Brian Simpson on May 23, 2014 at 13:00 0 Comments








Age: 25, Crime: Happiness

About a month ago, 6 Iranian boys and girls (in this video) danced to the famous song by Pharrell Williams called "Happy" on the rooftops of Tehran and uploaded their video on the YouTube. It was widely distributed in the social media. The police decided to track them down and arrest them and make them repent in front of the camera. It then showed this capture on the national TV channels as a bunch of deceived Iranian youth who regretted their deed. In the past 35 years, Islamic Republic has managed to steal freedom and happiness from the Iranian youth and replace it with a culture full of mourning and sorrow. We, too, are human. We, too, have the right to be happy and live happily and learn how to be happy.

Put Scotland in control of Scottish Broadcasting Now...

Posted by Brian Simpson on September 21, 2014 at 16:17 0 Comments

About this Petition The independence referendum is over. On September the 18th voters in Scotland said No to independence by 55% to 45%.

There is now a vow to bring more extensive powers to Scotland. The media has a key role to play in ensuring pledges made by the three Unionist parties prior to the referendum are honoured. The BBC has a key role in informing the people of Scotland and holding the London based politicians to account. Whatever your views of the BBC, one thing is clear - Scotland has changed forever.

That change has been demonstrated in crowded halls throughout Scotland as ordinary people engage in the democratic process. The two year campaign, initially described by some as too long, has allowed a nation to mature politically - it has been electrifying. As Scotland moves on to her next phase, we require our institutions to mirror our evolution. We need our broadcasters to be of us, to reflect us, to answer to us. Currently the BBC exists in Scotland as an appendage to the UK BBC. Despite its name, there is no offical body called BBC Scotland. The organisation we know as BBC Scotland is not answerable to the Scottish Parliament. It is not subject to Scottish Freedom of Information laws and cannot be summoned to answer questions in front of Holyrood MSPs.

The BBC in Scotland is, in effect, controlled by London and is ultimately answerable to the Westminster government. The BBC in Scotland must come under the jurisdiction of the Scottish Parliament, Scots Law and ultimately the Scottish people. The proposals for further devolution of power to Scotland must include broadcasting.

This petition does not attempt to specify how the new…

Sunset Overdrive Review: A Genuinely Fun Game, Once You Get Past First Impressions

sunset_overdrive_review_train_shocker  Microsoft’s console exclusives are arguably what it needs to make up ground on PlayStation, despite its continued hold on the beloved Halo series. Its brand new Xbox One game, Sunset Overdrive, looks in part to be an answer to Sony’s fan favorite Infamous series, since both offer a lot of grinding, wall-climbing and parkour-ish behavior.

What Halloween looked like in 1980s New York City

Nyc-halloween-141
Feed-tw Feed-fb

The New York Village Halloween parade is America's only nighttime parade. The parade route stretches for more than a mile, up Manhattan's Sixth Avenue.

In addition to elaborate costumes, the event features giant puppets manipulated by several puppeteers and bands. Each year, parade themes draw upon extensive research into the symbolic language and meanings underlying celebrations and rituals.

Today the event sees around 2 million spectators, plus over 60,000 costumed participants. The 2014 grand marshall is actor and TV personality Whoopi Goldberg.

The parade dates back to 1974, when Greenwich Village puppeteer and mask maker Ralph Lee asked his children and friends to wear the 100+ costumes he had accumulated through his work. Read more...

Raises are coming for the cast of 'Game of Thrones'

Thrones

If Game of Thrones lives to see Season 7, some of the show's cast is poised to see some pretty hefty pay raises

HBO has reportedly locked the series' primary cast for the as-of-now unofficial Season 7 after renegotiating the contracts that were set to expire after Season 6, according to The Hollywood Reporter

As part of the new deals, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, and Lena Headey will reportedly receive raises for the already ordered Seasons 5 and 6, as well as Season 7 should it be ordered. (Or more likely, "when it is ordered," right?) Read more...

11 non-baseball things to do in Kansas City

Kansas-city
Feed-tw Feed-fb

Kansas City is known for its jazz music, barbecue, historical war sights and art museums. Although if you've asked anyone over the past month, KC is known for just one thing: baseball.

The Kansas City Royals made it all the way to the World Series for the first time in 29 years. The run was incredibly impressive, but sadly came to an end on Wednesday night with a Game 7 loss to Madison Bumgarner (and the San Francisco Giants. But really though, mostly Madison).

During their playoff run, America had a weird love affair with Kansas City. Actually, America didn't really care about Kansas City, they really just cared about the Royals. It's like America didn't recognize Kansas City as its own entity, but rather a plot of land where Kauffman Stadium happens to be located. Read more...

The U.S. is losing the battle to predict the next Hurricane Sandy

Weather-infrastructure-thumb-1
Feed-tw Feed-fb

Hurricane Sandy, which made landfall near Brigantine, New Jersey, on Oct. 29, 2012, was a showcase of modern weather forecasting — but not necessarily one enabled by American engineering

The storm shined a spotlight on the superiority of a computer model run by a European weather center, known as the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF), which, more than a week in advance, pinpointed Sandy's infamous left hook track directly into New Jersey

Now, two years after that monstrous storm, the same computing gap remains — in some cases growing even wider. In addition, the Weather Service is trying to shore up even more basic elements of its infrastructure, like satellites and computer networks. These issues raise the question of whether the agency is ready to face another Sandy. Read more...
