Today’s Holiday: Punkie Night

Today’s Holiday:
Punkie Night

In the English village of Hinton St. George, Somerset, it is traditional for both children and adults to walk through town carrying “punkies,” or lanterns made from carved-out mangel-wurzels, or mangolds (a variety of beet), with candles in them. Although this custom is observed in other English towns, the celebration at Hinton St. George is by far the best established. There is a procession of children carrying punkies through the streets, begging for money, and singing the “punky song.” A prize is given out for the best carved punky.

Today’s Birthday: Mahalia Jackson (1911)

Today’s Birthday:
Mahalia Jackson (1911)

As a child, Jackson sang at the New Orleans church where her father preached. After moving to Chicago, she sang with a touring gospel quintet. Her warm, powerful voice first came to wider public attention in the 1930s. Called “The Queen of Gospel,” she sang at an inaugural party for US President John F. Kennedy, at the 1963 March on Washington, and at the funeral of Martin Luther King, Jr. Despite many offers, she refused to sing secular songs. Jackson was born with what physical deformity?

This Day in History: USA PATRIOT Act Signed into Law (2001)

This Day in History:
USA PATRIOT Act Signed into Law (2001)

Enacted quickly and with little opposition in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the sweeping USA PATRIOT Act dramatically enhanced the powers of law enforcement and intelligence-gathering agencies within the US. The bill has since come under increasing scrutiny and criticism, and aspects of it have faced legal challenges in the courts. After it was renewed in 2006, most of its sections became permanent. What section of the act has riled librarians in particular? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Article of the Day: The Vasa

Article of the Day:
The Vasa

Still cited as a classic folly, the Vasa is a Swedish warship that sank only a mile into its maiden voyage in 1628. The first and grandest of five ships built to express Sweden’s expansionist aspirations, the ship featured hundreds of sculptures whose weight likely hampered its stability. Remarkably well preserved, the ship was salvaged with a largely intact hull in 1961 and restored. What anachronistic artifact did pranksters allegedly put in the submerged ship days before the salvage? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Prager University deschide proces companiei Google pentru cenzura pe YouTube

Prager University deschide proces companiei Google pentru cenzura pe YouTube:

“We Are Suing YouTube for Censoring Our Videos

Dear Valued Subscriber,

As you know, PragerU’s videos are available on a number of platforms, one of which is YouTube. And as you may also know, YouTube has chosen repeatedly to restrict some of our videos for violating their “Community Guidelines.” Those guidelines are meant to protect users against viewing sexual content, violent or graphic content, and hate speech.

As a PragerU viewer, you know as well as I do that our videos contain nothing even remotely close to any of these categories.

To date, YouTube has restricted or “demonetized” 50 PragerU videos, addressing topics ranging from the Ten Commandments to the history of the Korean War.

More than a year ago, we filed a complaint with YouTube, hoping that there was some kind of innocent mistake.

That’s when we were told by YouTube that after reviewing our videos they determined that they were indeed “not appropriate for a younger audience.” Of course, we have this in writing.

Think about the millions of actually inappropriate videos on YouTube and then ask yourself, “Why is our content restricted?”

Unfortunately, the answer is rather obvious, isn’t it? YouTube has restricted PragerU videos for only one reason: Ideological discrimination.

Of course, YouTube is owned by Google, which was founded to, ironically, “Organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.”

YouTube has made some of our most important videos inaccessible to the very audience PragerU seeks to reach: young people.

Let me be clear: they don’t like what we teach and so they intend to stop us from teaching it. This kind of censorship is what we have seen on college campuses for years. But it is far more dangerous in this circumstance because the internet is where the world goes to get informed.

Can you imagine if the left owned the internet the way they own our universities?

Can you imagine what the world would look like if Google is allowed to continue to arbitrarily censor ideas they simply don’t agree with?

Well, this is why Prager University filed suit again YouTube and Google. We are not fighting this only for PragerU—we are taking this on for America and possibly the world.

Now, I have to tell you … this was not an easy decision.

Over the summer, former Governor of California Pete Wilson — who has been a longtime supporter of PragerU — approached us and posited the idea: “We have to sue them,” he said. “Google is hubris.”

Those words weighed heavy on our entire team as we considered our options.

Obviously, a fight with Google will be hugely difficult and costly, and we hate the idea of deploying energy and resources away from producing more content and reaching new audiences. We simply cannot do that.

So, before taking any such action, we decided we’d attempt a more diplomatic approach one last time. On the one-year anniversary of Google blocking our content, or the “BANniversary” as we had come to call it, we renewed our complaints to YouTube and re-circulated an online petition urging Google to change course. Many articles have been written and many people, including many very prominent and influential people, rallied in support of our cause. To date, well over a quarter-of-a-million people have added their names to our petition.

What was the result of our efforts?

Nothing. YouTube ignored us. In fact, they have since restricted 11 more PragerU videos.

With our hands tied, we knew Governor Wilson was right—Google’s hubris had to be challenged.

So, we have built an all-star legal team, including Governor Wilson’s Law Firm, Eric George, Alan Dershowitz, Barak Lurie, Kelly Shackelford, Mat Staver, and more.

It’s an impressive group, because this is an important case; not only for PragerU, but for the fundamental American right to freedom of speech.

But this is not going to be easy and it isn’t going to be cheap.

Despite the fact that our amazing attorneys have agreed to reasonably cap their legal fees, there will be additional personnel, research, marketing and public relations costs to PragerU.

This case will be tried in the court of public opinion as much as in the courtroom, and we intend to win in both venues.

However, we cannot deplete our operating budget to fight this case. Thanks to you, PragerU has reached more than 1-out-of-4 Americans on the internet. Sixty-three percent of them are under 34. We plan to continue to focus on this growth and reach 3 out of 4 Americans. We can’t let up now.

We are fully committed to the lawsuit but we won’t let them slow the growth of PragerU.

This is why our board of directors and many staff members have donated, in addition to our annual gift, to what we are calling the “YouTube Action Fund.” Dennis Prager, Allen Estrin, and I have all given extra this year.

Now, here is how you can help:

Please go to our website and sign the petition against YouTube censorship. It already has nearly 300,000 signatures; please add yours if you haven’t done so already, and ask 10 of your friends to do the same.
More importantly, please contribute to our action fund if you can, over and above your planned support for PragerU. Our initial goal for the legal fund is $1 million, and we think we can reach that goal with your help.

Many of you have already given so generously and I am embarrassed to ask for more. But if you think this fight is important please support us in whatever way you can.

It seems like a lot to ask…until you consider how much we have to lose.

Perhaps Goliath could teach Google a little bit about where hubris leads … when a David comes slinging.

Thank you, and God bless you.

My comment:

They are drunk with power! They are re-writing the laws of decency, and they are doing nothing but a csmplain of witchehunt without borderd, without guidelines, real regulatory guidelines….kinda like the McCarthy shameful era! Shame on them for rounding up the power on all their plarforms, including the psy for ref youtube, the ads during simphonies…and their restrictive google search engine on their browser! They alk became enemy of free speech with no alternatives! It is what poeleer does: it corrupts!! it destroys! It hurtd society and every individual!

☆Rie Sinclair – Island of Loneliness


Where do I go, when it’s all blown over?
Where do I start, when it’s all gone to the dogs?
I am not bitter, I’m just trying to recover,
From my island of loneliness.
Where do I hide from the careless words you speak?
The words aren’t chic,
I can’t be pulled underneath.
I’m not immune, I just want to see beyond.
Beyond my island of loneliness.
I don’t want a fraction of your kiss to fill my empty heart.
I sail in my own sinking ship to the place where I belong.
So, what should I say?
I hear the cannons fire in the distance.
Is there a place for the tide to change my heart?
Stop wasting time, collecting lines of girls.
Wake up out of it
In my arms, out of your island of loneliness.

Tonight Will Be Fine

Leonard Cohen


Sometimes I find I get to thinking of the past.
We swore to each other then that our love would surely last.
You kept right on loving, I went on a fast,
Now I am too thin and your love is too vast.
But I know from your eyes
And I know from your smile
That tonight will be fine,
Will be fine, will be fine, will be fine
For a while.

I choose the rooms that I live in with care,
The windows are small and the walls almost bare,
There’s only one bed and there’s only one prayer;
I listen all night for your step on the stair.
But I know from your eyes
And I know from your smile
That tonight will be fine,
Will be fine, will be fine, will be fine
For a while.

Oh sometimes I see her undressing for me,
She’s the soft naked lady love meant her to be
And she’s moving her body so brave and so free.
If I’ve got to remember that’s a fine memory.
And I know from her eyes
And I know from her smile
That tonight will be fine,
Will be fine, will be fine, will be fine
For a while.

I pity the poor immigrant
Who wished he’d stayed home
Who uses all his power to do evil
And in the end is always left alone
Like men who with his fingers cheats
And who lies with every breath
Who passionately hate his life
And likewise fears his death
I pity the poor immigrant
Who’s strength is all in vain
Who’s heaven is like iron sides
Who’s tears fall like rain
Who eats but is not satisfied
Who hears but does not see
Who falls in love with wealth and self
And turns his back on me
I pity the poor immigrant
Who tramples through the mud
Who fills his mouth with laughing
And who builds his town with blood
Who visions it may finally end
Must shatter like the glass
I pity the poor immigrant
Who his gladness comes surpass.
