Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project


Marion Stokes was secretly recording television twenty-four hours a day for thirty years. It started in 1979 with the Iranian Hostage Crisis at the dawn of the twenty-four hour news cycle. It ended on December 14, 2012 while the Sandy Hook massacre played on television as Marion passed away. In between, Marion recorded on 70,000 VHS tapes, capturing revolutions, lies, wars, triumphs, catastrophes, bloopers, talk shows, and commercials that tell us who we were, and show how television shaped the world of today.

Before “fake news” Marion was fighting to protect the truth by archiving everything that was said and shown on television. The public didn’t know it, but the networks were disposing their archives for decades into the trashcan of history. Remarkably Marion saved it, and now the Internet Archive will digitize her tapes and we’ll be able to search them online for free.

This is a mystery in the form of a time capsule. It’s about a radical Communist activist, who became a fabulously wealthy recluse archivist. Her work was crazy but it was also genius, and she would pay a profound price for dedicating her life to this visionary and maddening project.

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #art, #books, #films, #music, #news, and #photo.

 
I find this fascinating, as an outsider looking into Brexit, but with similar issues around independent, factual press as a part of life.
I missed this, a year ago - so the wise and funny John Cleese is now an expat of the U.K. (hopefully enjoying sun rather than hurricane just now). But the Brexit drama is still slogging along, placed on hold as the clock ticks. No drama here. There. Everywhere. Sigh.

News | Der Tagesspiegel: Chatprotokolle aus Chemnitz - Rechte verabredeten sich zu Hetzjagden auf Ausländer


Ermittlungsergebnisse liefern neue Indizien, dass es im August 2018 zur gezielten Jagd auf Migranten kam. Ermittler werteten die Handys bekannter Rechter aus.

Am Rande der Ausschreitungen in Chemnitz vor einem Jahr soll es zur gezielten Jagd auf Migranten und vermeintliche Migranten gekommen sein. Neue Ermittlungsergebnisse gäben klare Hinweise darauf, berichten Süddeutscher Zeitung, WDR und NDR...
Meine Meinung: Ja da sieht man sehr schön wie wenig man sich zu der Scheiße verabredet hat! Aus dem Text:
Die Mehrheit der Chats stammt vom 26. und 28. August 2018. Demnach hätten rechtsextreme Demonstrationsteilnehmer selbst den Begriff „Jagd“ verwendet, Tage bevor die mediale Debatte über die Frage der Hetzjagden angestoßen wurde.

Trump: "The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now!"


Shabbat shalom! :) Good old Trump has an excellent sense of humour. For example:
Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now!

Zwei Artikel aus der Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung


Heute fand ich bei der Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung zwei Artikel die ich hier verlinken will.

Heidelberg - Ein Bußgeld "muss im Geldbeutel wehtun"


Stadt begrüßt Vorstoß von Bundesverkehrsminister Scheuer - Über 130 000 Verwarnungen in 2018

Falschparkern den Kampf ansagen: Das hat die Stadt in den vergangenen Jahren schon mehrfach versucht. Für Aufsehen sorgte beispielsweise 2016 die "Denkzettel"-Aktion von Stadt und der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Fahrradfreundlicher Kommunen in Baden-Württemberg. Ein Dutzend junger Menschen verteilte damals gut 20.000 blaue Klebezettel für ein in der Plöck im absoluten Halteverbot abgestelltes Auto. Wenige Monate später gewannen die Initiatoren mit ihrer Aktion den Deutschen Fahrradpreis 2017 in der Kategorie Kommunikation. Seither werden immer mal wieder "Denkzettel" verteilt...

Straßenverkehrsordnung - Bußgelder bringen ohne Kontrollen nichts


Verkehrspolizeichef Schäfer zu den Ideen des Verkehrsministers

Dieter Schäfer war gerade im Internet. Er hat gelesen, dass sich Busse in Städten künftig ihre Spuren mit E-Scootern teilen sollen. Einer der vielen Vorschläge von Bundesverkehrsminister Andreas Scheuer (CSU), mit denen er den Straßenverkehr in Deutschland ändern will. Schäfer muss lachen: "Manche haben Ideen." Man sieht das Kopfschütteln des Leiters der Mannheimer Verkehrspolizeidirektion förmlich durchs Telefon. Scheuer will auch Bußgelder erhöhen. Schäfer findet das eigentlich nicht schlecht, hat allerdings auch so seine Zweifel...

Na, da bin ich mal sehr gespannt, ob das in der Praxis Besserung bringen wird ...

Parken auf Geh- und Radwegen soll für Autofahrer künftig teurer werden. Auch bei Rettungsgassen sieht die Reform der Straßenverkehrsordnung wichtige Neuerungen vor.
