“later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?

it answered
everywhere
everywhere
everywhere.”

The month of June 2015 …. “Major Flag Stories”!!

UNCLE SAM: THE TIME HAS COME

A strong push to remove the Confederate battle flag from Capitol grounds in South Carolina and Alabama — as well as the shelves of major retailers — was sparked by the racially motivated killings of nine people inside a historic black church last week.

Long a controversial symbol, the flag can be seen in photos of the accused shooter, Dylann Roof. Roof, 21, used a “Stars and Bars” license plate holder on his car and can be seen waving the battle flag in other shots. Roof’s apparent embrace of the flag has energized its opponents and caused some politicians to rethink their previous support for its use.

Over the years, the Confederate battle flag has come to mean different things to different people in politics and pop culture. To many, it is emblematic of slavery, racism and the bloody battles that made the Civil War the deadliest conflict in U.S. history. But supporters of the flag say they see it as a memorial to slain Confederate soldiers.

WASHINGTON

In a long-sought victory for the gay rights movement, the Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote on Friday, June 26, that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, writing for the majority in the historic decision, said gay and lesbian couples had a fundamental right to marry.

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family,” he wrote. “In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”

The decision, which was the culmination of decades of litigation and activism, set off celebrations across the country and the first same-sex marriages in several states. It came against the backdrop of fast-moving changes in public opinion, with polls indicating that most Americans now approve of the unions.

Something to think about …. “Interest in Politics”!!


Politics

~~June 22, 2015~~

A VERY SMART MAN …. TIMELESS QUOTE

Pericles (c. 495 – 429 BC) was arguably the most prominent and influential Greek statesman, orator and general of Athens during the Golden Age — specifically the time between the Persian and Peloponnesian wars. He was descended, through his mother, from the powerful and historically influential Alcmaeonid family.

Pericles had such a profound influence on Athenian society that Thucydides, a contemporary historian, acclaimed him as “the first citizen of Athens”. Pericles turned the Delian League into an Athenian empire, and led his countrymen during the first two years of the Peloponnesian War.

The period during which he led Athens, roughly from 461 to 429 BC, is sometimes known as the “Age of Pericles“, though the period thus denoted can include times as early as the Persian Wars, or as late as the next century.

American Railroads ….. lagging behind!! “Shame, shame …… “!!


Trains

~~May 18, 2015~ 

Railroads played a large role in the development of the United States from the industrial revolution in the North East 1810–50 to the settlement of the West 1850–1890. The American railroad mania began with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1828 and flourished until the Panic of 1873 bankrupted many companies and temporarily ended growth.

Although the South started early to build railways, it concentrated on short lines linking cotton regions to oceanic or river ports, and the absence of an interconnected network was a major handicap during the Civil War. The North and Midwest constructed networks that linked every city by 1860. In the heavily settled Midwestern Corn Belt, over 80 percent of farms were within 5 miles (8 km) of a railway, facilitating the shipment of grain, hogs and cattle to national and international markets. A large number of short lines were built, but thanks to a fast developing financial system based on Wall Street and oriented to railway bonds, the majority were consolidated into 20 trunk lines by 1890. State and local governments often subsidized lines, but rarely owned them.

The system was largely built by 1910, but then trucks arrived to eat away the freight traffic, and automobiles (and later airplanes) to devour the passenger traffic. The use of diesel electric locomotives (after 1940) made for much more efficient operations that needed fewer workers on the road and in repair shops.

Off the rails: US railway crisis blamed on lack of funding, crumbling infrastructure

The US is no stranger to fatal railway accidents: over the last decade, dozens of lives were lost, and hundreds of people injured in train wrecks. All this is due to lack of funding, infrastructure and development, critics say.

The latest train crash has left at least six people killed and dozens injured, with the cause of the crash remaining unknown. It came on the eve of the railway budget bill that could see the funding for Amtrak slashed by 20 percent, from $1.4 to 1.13 billion.

In comparison, China’s railway budget for the next fiscal year is an estimated $128 billion, the Atlantic news portal reported.

The issues that the rail system faces in the US are an alleged lack of the federal commitment to build the high-speed efficient transport links, plus crumbling infrastructure – the latter even became the focus point of a recent documentary ‘Falling Apart’ on CBS.

The documentary stated that the flailing transport system is largely due to “decades of neglect” by the government.

BLine

A striking example that the film provided was that 70,000 bridges in the country need to be either replaced or dramatically repaired.

Another problem of the rail system is population density: the US is far less dense than, for instance, Spain or France. Nevertheless, even in the most densely-populated areas of the country, the railway network has been reported slow and inefficient.

To start the day …. “Ellen Introduces Kids to the Technology of Yesterday”!!


Old7

~~February 20, 2015~~ 

Kids these days don’t know how good they have it. Ellen proved exactly that when she asked these kids to give their opinion of some outdated devices.

Old10

What happens when you take a bunch of young kids and introduce them to a typewriter, an old cell phone, an answering machine and more devices of yesteryear?

Well, thanks to the always hilarious Ellen Degeneres, we now have the answer!

Watch the video below to see how children, who’ve grown up using iPhones, iPads and the like, react to using some now-outdated technology!

Face Hacking- Real-Time Face Tracking & 3D Projection Mapping

Real-time face tracking and 3D projection mapping is a fairly new technology. Japanese technical director/producer Nobumichi Asai has created this amazing video displaying the amazing art show. This video superbly showcases how this combined technology can transform faces instantly, morphing them into various effects. This opens up a world of possibilities for global make-up brands and, perhaps theatrical performances.

~COMMENT FROM A VIEWER …. Sol Systema~

While you wrestle with your own personal growth and development. The future is quickly making its presence known. You can choose to identify however you wish, belong to groups or clubs, all the while life is forcing us to look from the inside-out and outside-in being all inclusive rather than thinking in terms of ageless exclusivity. Simply put, we are evolving as a whole, not just parts. Science, art, technology, and music are just pieces to the puzzle.

The puzzle is yet another piece of a bigger picture and the bigger picture is but a snapshot in the scrapbook we call life. This continues Ad Infinitum. Forever. Forever will we be growing, learning, exploring the infinite. At issue is that forever is catching up to our today, this makes many people uneasy, intolerant, and nervous.
