I'm in that zone at the beginning of the month when I haven't yet clicked out The New York Times, Washington Post, New Yorker, etc... I can just click on links willy-nilly. And in two weeks there's going to be a headline like Manafort Spills the Beans, the Real Story of 2016 and when I click on it, I'll get the "Keep reading for just $3/month" and I'll be thinking, "Did I really have to read about shepherding in the former Yugoslavia three weeks ago?" #clickout #media #YugoslavianShepherding

U.S. Constitution is being dismantled


“…the prosecution of #Assange and #WikiLeaks would have a chilling effect. Not that most of the US’s supine mainstream and social #media would be chilled. The mainstream media that have spoken out about Assange and WikiLeaks have come down on the side of the #government. The social media companies, de facto arms of the government, are shutting down politically incorrect voices. Neither mainstream or social media have anything to lose from the termination of First Amendment #freedoms because they don’t say, or allow anyone else to say, anything the powers that be don’t want heard.”
 

Terrified by ‘hothouse Earth’? Don’t despair — do something.

In a tweet, Diana Liverman, a #climate scientist and co-author of the paper called out the #media directly:
“Clearly people aren’t reading the paper we wrote where our point is exactly that #Hothouse #Earth is not our destiny and that social system feedbacks are starting to move us to the Stable Earth. But media goes for worst case and makes it sound certain.”
Liverman and the other authors anticipated a defeatist response and published a multi-page document of possible solutions which, when combined with other research on the most im

#UKColumn News - 7th August 2018

https://www.ukcolumn.org/ukcolumn-news/uk-column-news-7th-august-2018

Reports on #Government using #google #Facebook #twitter and #Apple to silence people though the Stigmation of #speech to protect certain vulnerable groups. The question is: Will this stigmation (labeling speach as #extremist or #conspiratorial) be used as leverage to shut down other forms of speech to obfuscate the #truth about #centralized control over #freedom.

My suggestion to all #alternative #media including #ukcolumn is to start using decentized platforms and drop centralized platforms like google, Facebook, Twitter and Apple.

If anyone has a line to reach alternative media groups who are trying to speed the truth about what is happening share with them the decentrized platforms. I have tried contact ukcolumn but have gotten no response.

National Security Adviser Bolton Refutes Media Claims of ‘Disconnect’ With President
 
Last month, I ran another in my series of live video parties at my cinema space (virtual) in Second Life called Autonomous Media Playground. This one was to celebrate the upcoming project of the Church Of The SubGenius, who will be releasing a documentary film soon, as well as paying tribute to the many hours of SLACK-filled festivities that have continued to amuse, confuse, confound, etc. etc for over three decades. I did the first in hopefully more experiments to broadcast the SL event through YouTube live. There were some unfortunate problems due to sound settings, and also the laptop sending the broadcast (also running SL) was not quite fast enough to capture the frame rate, so I switched to a secondary machine midway, and did a very nice quality video capture.

The result of these pixel juggling shenanigans ended up being a video playlist filled with excerpts from the entire 3-hour film 'fest ~ hope some of you can enjoy and go along for the ride to achieve more SLACK! Praise, "Bob"!

Never mind The Beatles…
Donald Trump may be the single largest pop figure of all time.
Turn on any TV and it’s unlikely to flip channels for 5 minutes before finding a reference to Trump.
Turn on any radio and it’s unlikely to search airwaves for more than 10 minutes before hearing a reference.
Hit almost any social media; chances are one won’t have to search stream or other “results” for 5 minutes before finding a reference.

“I don’t do defamation of people, I do serious analysis of serious national security problems,” Professor Cohen responded. “When people like you call people like me, and not only me, but people more eminent than me, apologists for Russia because we don’t agree with your analysis, you are criminalizing diplomacy and detente and you are the threat to American national security, end of story.” ~ Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus at Princeton and New York University

- #ODG #Video #Shows Off #Hands-Free #ReticleOS #Media #Player for R-9 #Smartglasses



A couple of months ago, I was given the opportunity to get a sneak peek at a new media interface for ODG's R-9 Smartglasses, and the experience was impressive. Now, after weeks of keeping it under wraps, I can finally show off what I saw. The interface is part of what ODG calls the ReticleOS operating system, and while a beta of the software was released months ago, many haven't seen the interface in action showing the media player shot through the device itself. Those who are familiar with ODG smartglasses know that users can interact with self-curated content for reading text and watching...

Let's not #overuse the #word #hero.

A hero is someone who does something extraordinary good while risking or sacrifycing something significant of their own. E.g.:

Someone who during floods jumps into a strong current to save someone else from drowning -- risks own life to save someone else and therefore is a hero.

Someone who saves a child from drowning in a shallow water -- didn't risk anything, it was a mere chance they were in the right place at the right time and did what any other person should do in that situation. This is not a hero. All we can say is they're probably not a bad person. Just winning a lottery and not behaving like a bad person doesn't make us heroes.

About an alleged hero always ask:
1. What was it that they risked or sacrificed? If the answer is nothing, we're not dealing with a hero.
2. Would we blame them if they haven't done what they've done? If the answer is yes, we're not dealing with a hero.

Too often is the word hero misused by the #media, degrading the real #heroes. I just feel we need to make this #definition clear.
