Cenk Uygur on the massacre in the Pakistani school that killed 141

leave a comment »

Cenk Uygur has a well-justified rant in this video. I have to say that I do like this program. I am going to have to starting watching The Young Turks channel. (Cenk Uygur is of Turkish descent.)

From Wikipedia:

The Young Turks (Turkish: Jön Türkler, from French: Les Jeunes Turcs, or Turkish: Genç Türkler) were a political reform movement in the early 20th century, favoring replacement of the absolute monarchy of the Ottoman Empire with a constitutional monarchy.

Wikipedia also has information on The Young Turks channel on YouTube.

Very interesting TED talk, posted in comments to the slant article

And note this:

Via Business Insider: “As the war over income inequality wages on, super-rich Seattle entrepreneur Nick Hanauer has been raising the hackles of his fellow 1-percenters, espousing the contrarian argument that rich people don’t actually create jobs. The position is controversial — so much so that TED is refusing to post a talk that Hanauer gave on the subject. National Journal reports today that TED officials decided not to put Hanauer’s March 1 speech up online after deeming his remarks “too politically controversial” for the site…”.

It’s not controversial at all: the notion that jobs are created on the supply side (rather than in response to demand) is jejune. But you can see why the rich like it—and do not want it tested.

I must say that I have lost considerable respect for TED. Their lack of courage is noticeable, I fear.

7-minute video workout

The above video is from an article in The Verge by Gregory Ferenstein, and I highly recommend you click the link and get more of the context of the exercise video. But I think it’s pretty cool. (Seems strenuous, though.)
