Copenhagen's Little Mermaid labelled "racist fish"


Denmark woke up on Friday to the words "racist fish" scrawled across the base of the "Little Mermaid", the bronze statue honouring Hans Christian Andersen's famous fairy tale that perches on a rock in the sea off a pier in Copenhagen.

iHUMAN (Norway, 2019)



The Norwegian documentary iHuman explores the current state of artificial intelligence by letting some of the formative people in the business speak more or less freely. Both the people who work on AI, and sees the technology in a positive light, and the sceptics and those wary of it. Together they paint a fairly bleak picture of what is ahead.

Good men don’t #change the world. They might be #nice to talk with and women might like them for a short period of time or put them in the friend zone. But the men who change the world are the ones who are #capable. So, when I think about that word, capability, and I think about dangerous, I think those two things go hand in hand. If you want to be a capable man, capable of #providing, #protecting and #providing, which is our motto, and not just motto but our way of life, then you need to be #willing and #able, willing and able to be dangerous in the right set of circumstances.

A time to heal old wounds of racial inequality in the world

https://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202006/12/WS5ee2bf66a3108348172527b6.html

The death of George #Floyd, a 46-year-old #black man, in #police custody in #Minnesota on May 25 sparked #multiracial protests across the United States demanding an end to #racial #inequality.

#Protests, #solidarity marches and vigils were held in other countries such as #Germany, #Britain, #Canada, #Brazil, #Australia and #Japan.

While the events have led to a moment of reckoning in the US, they also pried open old wounds of inequality in other parts of the world.

Collapse is a short documentary examining the crisis shocked into motion by the COVID-19 pandemic as the final breakdown of capitalist society. The film looks at a number of topics, including great power competition, the lockdown, the collapse of social dependence, unemployment and automation to present an understanding of our historical moment as, simply, "the beginning of an end".

Admire my son, he's my clone
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
This land is mine, this land is free
I'll do what I want but irresponsibly
It's evolution, baby

I'm a thief, I'm a liar
There's my church, I sing in the choir:
(Hallelujah, hallelujah)


Admire me, admire my home
Admire my son, admire my clones
'Cause we know, appetite for a nightly feast
Those ignorant Indians got nothin' on me
Nothin', why? Because...
It's evolution, baby

I am ahead, I am advanced
I am the first mammal to make plans, yeah
I crawled the earth, but now I'm higher
2010, watch it go to fire
It's evolution, baby
It's evolution, baby

Do the evolution
Come on
Come on, come on

Trevor Speaks Out About the Murder of George Floyd


Trevor Noah, of The Daily Show fame, had dropped the #comedian persona and just talked as #insightfully, #philosophically, and #unscripted to the camera for about 20 minutes. It sounded to me like #RequiredListening. I found it in a few places after first digging it up on #Twitter last night. Please make the time to listen to it and pass it on.

Its also available at Luminary, and available at Radio (dot) Net, and ... of course ... available on #YouTUBE.

How Greenwich Republicans Learned to Love #Trump

Others in town have abandoned their objections to Trump. Leora Levy, who called him vulgar in the local paper, took to applauding his “leadership” and quoting him on Twitter, where she adopted some of his rhetorical style. “america will never be a socialist country!!!” she posted. “we are born free and will stay free!!!” Last fall, Trump nominated her to be the American Ambassador to Chile.

A Decade Of Watching Black People Die


I don't know how exactly to deal with my white friends lately. I could have the same headspace of ignorance but for a lucky random event that changed my direction towards #open-mindedness about two decades ago. They aren't exposed to the realities of people without power or money. They don't know they should be exposed to those harsh realities. They don't know because of how #society has formed and they don't know how it has been #manipulated by people with #power and #capital.

The Forum complex in the Dutch city Groningen is trying to show that town centres don’t need to sell to survive

Four-year-old Joris Niekus hops excitedly in front of a wall-sized flatscreen as his dad loads up an interactive version of Roald Dahl’s BFG (known as GVR in Dutch).

Seconds later, face beaming, his digitised silhouette is bopping across the screen together with Dahl’s gangly giant.
