Werner Herzog’s “Lessons of Darkness” trailer mash up with Fatima Al Qadiri’s “Hydra” from the Desert Strike EP, 2013
honestly it’s kind of incredible that gamergate just continues to get stupider and stupider. i didn’t think that was possible
moot FINALLY stepped in and now gamergate threads are not allowed on 4chan anymore, because coordinating raids and doxxing and whatnot are against the rules and said rules are finally being enforced. so, naturally, these shitheads are mad at moot, and they’re taking it out on…surprise surprise, not moot himself, but rather the nearest woman!! they’re attacking moot’s girlfriend, specifically, because she works at gawker, the parent company of kotaku, so obviously that means she must have brainwashed poor moot into being “an sjw”
but this is totally about ethics in game journalism, right
an artist’s response to gamergaters being exiled from 4chan
best ending: sjw bandits jump out of that sand and murder them and steal their food and water, like in the beginning of the Fist of the North Star movie. scraps of ‘objective game reviews’ flutter in the wind, forgotten
Consistent with every Chicago Council Survey since 1974, Americans favor cutting federal spending on military aid (59%) and economic aid (60%) to other countries. But other polls have shown that Americans also tend to overstate the actual amounts appropri - ated for these categories. 16 In fact, in a new budget exercise included in the 2014 survey, Americans say that out of $100, they would give $4.34 to economic assistance and $4.13 to military assistance for other countries. Translated into percentages of a real budget, this would constitute spending 8.48 percent on inter - national assistance, vastly higher than the actual level, which was 1.4 percent in 2012
i love when studies ask americans about their opinions on budget items while neglecting to mention what the current budget is, because americans are heavily propagandized not to know.
The price these supposedly heroic battalion commanders demanded for their combat roles is representation in parliament. Russian forces have killed dozens of volunteer soldiers in recent battles, Biletsky said earlier this month, and “those who made a major sacrifice deserve to be represented in power.”
His battalion fighters, some wearing undisguised swastika tattoos, often express anti-Semitic views. But that did not stop hundreds of Ukrainians from pushing “like” under Facebook photographs of Biletsky and his men.
The “Military Council” of the People’s Front welcomed a commander of the Dnper-1 Battalion, Yuri Birch. Andriy Parubiy, a co-founder of Patriots of Ukraine back in the 1990s, also has found a role in the pro-Poroshenko camp. He and a few other activists were tried for beating demonstrators in Lviv on November 7, 1997. During the February uprising on Maidan square, he worked closely with far-right groups as a commander of the Maidan self-defense troops.
Last year, Patriots of Ukraine supporters and Biletsky were accused of attempting to kill journalist Sergei Kolesnik. He was detained but never convicted. Other supporters of the organization were jailed in 2011 for preparing a terrorist act.
Yet the embrace of such figures has not immunized Poroshenko from attack by other ultra-nationalists.
On Thursday, Dmitry Yarosh, the leader of the Right Sector, threatened Poroshenko with a military coup. On one of his social network pages Yarosh demanded Poroshenko make major changes in the ministry of interior.
“If our demands are not met in 48 hours, we’ll have to withdraw our units from the front lines, declare a mass mobilization of battalions and begin to march on Kiev,” Yarosh said.
In the open letter that the experts on hate crime sent to Prime Minister Yatsenyuk they called on him and, by extension, Poroshenko to prevent Biletsky’s political career from gaining traction and thus discrediting Ukraine: “Considering the fact that Biletsky still has not publically denied his misanthropic, anti-liberal, anti-European and openly racist ideology, we strongly recommend you not to present him as a candidate for your party.”
The researchers—Aleksander Bindert, Pavel Klimenko, Galina Koinash, and Viacheskav Likhachev—cited calls by Biletsky’s group for “an iron tyrant who could destroy foreign power” while defending the “Ukrainian Nation and White Power.”
And the letter, along with other critiques, may have had an impact. Yatsenyuk has announced that his party will now go into the elections, reluctantly, on a list separate from Poroshenko’s.
“By making men like Biletsky his partners, Poroshenko gives Putin’s propagandists a true reason—actual facts—to say that Kiev is fascist,” said Nemira."
Wow I knew Uber was bad but this is ridiculous
Amazon has been trying to do the same thing with delivery vehicles for years, hiring anyone off the street who has a van and a driver’s license as an independent contractor to drive down sources of shipping costs like wages and benefits
Maher al-Tabba, director of public and media relations at Gaza’s chamber of commerce, said the Kerem Shalom operates with the same restrictions as before Israel’s military offensive in Gaza.
Around 3,700 trucks have entered the besieged enclave between Aug 28. and Sept. 15, almost a third of which were aid trucks.
Over 1,400 tons of cement entered Gaza between Sept. 2 - 15 to be used in internationally funded projects initiated before the conflict.
Unemployment rates are expected to surpass 55 percent in the near future, al-Tabba added.
In early September, Maria Jose Torres, deputy head of office in the Occupied Palestinian Territory branch of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said no changes had been made at the Erez or Kerem Shalom crossings.
"We were expecting that the agreement of the ceasefire would have some kind of timeline for easing and lifting the blockade but so far we have nothing publicly. There might be something we are not aware of," she added.
Following weeks of Egyptian-brokered negotiations, Israel and Hamas agreed to halt their fire in Gaza on Aug. 26 after 50 days, their deadliest confrontation in years.
The indirect talks are set to resume mid-September to discuss longer-term issues.
Cuba’s pledge to deploy a 165-strong army of doctors and nurses to help fight the Ebola outbreak is the latest example of the Communist country’s decades-old tradition of “medical diplomacy.”
Since 1960, when Cuba dispatched a team of doctors to help with the aftermath of an earthquake in Chile, the Caribbean island has sent more than 135,000 medical staff to all corners of the globe.
The latest batch being sent to help in west Africa’s Ebola crisis are part of a 50,000-strong foreign legion of Cuban doctors and healthcare workers spread across 66 countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa, according to Cuba’s Health Ministry.
Cuban Health Minister Roberto Morales Ojeda told reporters in Geneva on Friday some 62 doctors and 103 nurses were being sent to Sierra Leone to tackle the outbreak.
World Health Organization director general Margaret Chan welcomed the Cuban aid, the largest offer of a foreign medical team from a single country during the outbreak.
