!Progressive Refuge I smell something fishy.

Years of Mark Zuckerberg's old Facebook posts have vanished. The company says it 'mistakenly deleted' them

These disappearances, along with other changes Facebook has made to how it saves its archive of announcements and blog posts, make it much harder to parse the social network's historical record. This makes it far more difficult to hold the company, and Zuckerberg himself, accountable to past statements — particularly during a period of intense scrutiny of the company in the wake of a string of scandals.

#News #CurrentEvents #GeoPolitics HANDS OFF #VENEZUELA: Interview with Venezuela Ambassador to #Syria - YouTube
13th March 2019 Yesterday (13/3/2019), I had the huge privilege of interviewing the Venezuelan Ambassador at the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the Syrian Arab Republic - in #Damascus. Dr Jose Gregorio Biomorgi Muzattiz was an immensely warm and welcoming host with tremendous intelligence, humour & geopolitical experience. Dr Biomorgi took the time to explain the history of what is happening now in Venezuela and to dismantle the propaganda that is surrounding events in his country.

Emma Thompson’s letter to Skydance: Why I can’t work for John Lasseter


Thompson walked away from a film she wanted to do and a director with whom she wanted to work because “no” means “no,” and it needed to be said in terms that Hollywood can understand.

Her letter in full:

As you know, I have pulled out of the production of “Luck” — to be directed by the very wonderful Alessandro Carloni. It feels very odd to me that you and your company would consider hiring someone with Mr. Lasseter’s pattern of misconduct given the present climate in which people with the kind of power that you have can reasonably be expected to step up to the plate.

I realise that the situation — involving as it does many human beings — is complicated. However these are the questions I would like to ask:... show more


 

What's a useful definition for the word 'Racism'?


Interesting article from #StevenBarnes, an #author that I follow. I heartily recommend his treatment of the issue in Lion's Blood, one of my favorite alternate history novels. But on to the crux of the article.

https://stevenbarneslife.wordpress.com/2019/02/23/fun-with-racism/
I just saw a post with someone saying: “Jesse Smollet is clearly racist…” detailing the offenses he is now accused of. They include filing a false police report, and creating a public disturbance. If guilty, the man needs to go to jail.

But “racist”? Really? By what precise definition you find honest and useful?

There is basically one I find to be both: “To attribute differential worth or capacity on the basis of race or ethnici

More about that Q Initiative


@Joseph Teller has provided several links to different articles from multiple sources saying that Initiative Q looks like some kind of a pyramid scam.

I'm not saying it is. I'm not saying it isn't. I don't have enough information to be certain either way. As of now, they haven't asked for anything that isn't already public information. On the other hand, as of now, while their remarks about the failings of cryptocurrencies are entirely on the mark, they haven't actually delivered anything tangible, only a promise of hoped-for future value.

But, the gripping hand is, caution is clearly in order.

I hope it's not the case. I did sign up, courtesy of my wife, but haven't sent out any invite links just in case this did turn out to be something like this.
