Meet Benjamin Button. No, it's not a Brad Pitt movie, it's a camera that you clip on your kid to record their every precious adventure. Is that even something you want to do? Well, the creators of the device launched a Kickstarter campaign this week, and it's already fully funded so there are obviously plenty of people out there interested in documenting little Brayden or Bridget's every move. The device is basically just a tiny camera that you can clip on your kid or on yourself (if you're hanging out with your kid). It's synced with an app that collects all the footage and automatically edits it, based on sound and activity recognition, and lets you share it with anybody. Read more...

Fox News’s Sean Hannity ripped his critics and the mainstream media on his nationally syndicated radio program Tuesday, saying, “I am not Fox.com or FoxNews.com, I retracted nothing.” His reaction came hours after Fox News retracted a story regarding the 2016 killing of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich after massive outcry over sharing conspiracy theories about the 2016 shooting death. Right-wing news outlets have sought to link — without evidence — the 27-year-old’s death to Democrat Hillary Clinton s presidential campaign and the WikiLeaks release of hacked emails from her campaign and the DNC. For those accusing me of pushing a conspiracy theory, you are the biggest phony hypocrites in the entire world, Hannity said Tuesday. “This issue, it’s so big now that the entire Russia collusion narrative is hanging by a thread,” he said, referencing media coverage of the investigations into the Trump campaign and possible ties to Russia's meddling in the presidential election last year.

The Kin Hubbard quoted here may now be largely forgotten, but in the first three decades of the 20th century, he was a humorist as widely admired as Mark Twain or Will Rogers. Hubbard drew a hugely popular comic strip based on a character called Abe Martin, and his humor was once described as a “comical mixture of hoss sense and no sense at all.” The quote above comes from one of Martin’s many pithy political ruminations, which include lines like “It’s all right taspire to office, but when a feller begins tperspire fer one it’s time twatch out.” The Hubbard-quoting Campbell, writes Vonnegut with wry humor, was “said by some to have had the highest I.Q., of all the war criminals who were made to face a death by hanging.” He also pitches his appeals to the common man, and ties together the “think and grow richphenomenon and the tendency of so many of the country’s less-well-off to support candidates and policies that routinely endanger access to public services, quality education, and healthcare.

"You wouldn't go up to a grizzly bear in the bush and hand him a ham sandwich, so you shouldn't be handing a thousand-pound wild mammal in the water slices of bread," Kiesman said. "And you certainly shouldn't be letting your little girl sit on the edge of the dock with her dress hanging down after the sea lion has already snapped at her once.

U.S. Rep. Al Green, D-Houston, speaking in favor of impeachment of President Trump from the floor of Congress on May 17, 2017. (Photo: Rep. Al Green's YouTube Channel) U.S. Rep. Al Green, D-Houston, Saturday revealed several racist and threatening voicemails — some saying the black congressman should be lynched — in reaction to Green's recent call to impeach President Donald Trump. Green played two of the messages at a Saturday town hall in Houston, per a video on his Facebook page. In each voicemail, the caller referred to him as the n-word and called for his hanging. Friends, I want to assure you that no amount of threats and intimidation will stop what I have started, I promise you, he said at the town hall. We are going to continue with this bc there has been an impeachable act and we have to act. Green's office posted those two messages on his Youtube account, along with a third voicemail called Green disgusting, and invoked a debunked conspiracy theory surrounding the unsolved murder of a Democratic National Committee staffer last summer.

U.S. Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) received voicemails threatening to lynch him and calling him racial slurs after he called for President Donald Trump s impeachment, he said Saturday. Green, who is black, played the recordings for about 100 attendees at a town hall in Houston, according to the Houston Chronicle. They include death threats, racial epithets and graphic language. Hey Al Green, weve got an impeachment for you. Its going to be yours, one caller said. Its actually going to give you a short trial before we hang your nigger ass. (Listen to two other voicemails at the Houston Chronicle .) Well lynch all you fuckin niggers, another caller said. Youll be hanging from a tree. That caller went on to claim no one had called for Barack Obamas impeachment ( they had ), even though he was born in Kenya ( he wasnt ).

UFC star Conor McGregor took another step toward making a fight with retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather by applying for a professional boxing license in Nevada, according to multiple reports Friday. Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett told ESPN that McGregor submitted his application on Thursday but it lacked medical documents necessary to consider the request. "When he has time, and all sides have come to a contractual agreement, I'm sure he will fulfill our requirements and we look forward to having him fight in Nevada," Bennett said. McGregor, who already has a license to fight in California, says he has agreed to terms with the UFC for a potential boxing match against 40-year-old Mayweather, who called it quits in 2015 after going 49-0 with 26 knockouts, hanging up his gloves as the welterweight king. McGregor, a 28-year-old Irishman, is the top pay-per-view draw in UFC while Mayweather had been the moneyspinner in some of boxing's biggest bouts, including matchups with Filipino star Manny Pacquiao and US star Oscar de la Hoya.

The story of a bunch of dreamily self-admiring friends hanging out in the suburbs and talking about aliens is oppressively self-indulgent This film stars Alexa Davies, and no one who saw her as Aretha in Caitlin Moran’s great Channel 4 comedy Raised By Wolves could fail to be a fan. But in the middle of this insufferable film I was longing for Aretha’s mum Della, played by Rebekah Staton, to come on and give all the dire emo self-harmers here a piece of her mind. It is so oppressively self-indulgent that it feels like getting a knitting needle slowly jammed into your ear canal. Davis plays Lucidia, a dreamily self-admiring teenager hanging out with a bunch of other dreamily self-admiring teenagers in a suburb close to an army base. They are into Twilight vampirism, eyeliner, BDSM-lite and hanging around talking interminably about aliens and life on other worlds.

Worldwide, Iranians react against the harsh crackdown taken by Tehran on Green movement participants (BBC Persian, 2009) What was actually happening was that grievances had shifted : the social justice demands and strong anti-imperialist opposition of 1979 revolutionaries were replaced by a demand for civil rights , social liberties and democracy. The movement’s main slogan was “where is my vote?”, and the pro-West attitude among youth was palpable. The Green Movement’s legacy is the strong political consciousness of many young Iranians who are unlikely to give up their involvement in the public sphere, or their political socialisation and activism . Occupying the public sphere in Iran. Stella Morgana These groups have been challenging the status quo of national political apathy for at least the last four years. They have fought for private and public freedoms by adopting Western lifestyles, chatting in parks or hanging out in malls.

Worlds of Tomorrow will feature video clips with work from the shows original cast, writers, and animators, just as the teaser trailer has.

Finally, if you find yourself becoming bored and unhappy and have cut off everything that you used to do that was fun, it’s time to re-evaluate your life from a higher perspective. I recently had a life coaching session with a 67 year old man whose life consisted of baseball, hunting, and hanging out in the woods. He found himself sitting alone, cut off from the world, wondering “what’s next”? After asking him a few questions, I sensed that he had a really good handle on identifying what was harmful to him and he had worked very hard to eliminate these things. We decided together that is was o.k. for him to re-introduce some of the things that he used to love to do, with a higher consciousness, awareness, and understanding. For example, he really missed baseball and he got really excited when I told him to turn the TV on to watch a few games! He knows how to shield himself with crystals and will turn the volume down during commercials.
