Star Trek Beyond - Stop Killing the Enterprise!!
Okay, the first trailer for this movie was a mess and did not say Star Trek to me at all. This trailer is much better. It feels like the Trek vibe, some focus on Kirk that makes sense. I think action in these flicks is good, particularly if it has a point, ...

Really interesting. 
Nonprofit pitches for money are failing to keep up with rapid changes in the donor pool as the nation’s demographics shift, according to a survey from Blackbaud.

This court's rulings may well dismantle the precious few legal protections remaining against discrimination.

NYPD on blast
Call this what it is: a reckless, coordinated escalation of a war between the police unions and Mayor Bill de Blasio.

I find it interesting that everybody wants to plug her statements slamming her fellow blacks but you completely ignore one of her other points, namely, that white folks don't care about black lives.  The reality is that for everyone that likes her sentiment, you like it because it agrees with a stereotype or preconceived notion of blacks as violent and killing each other and only being outraged about police murders if its about racial conflict.  And you love to find a black person that will say what you think.  but just because she is black doesn't make what she is saying any more valid.  Let's assume the St. Louis shooting story as told by the police is just as they claim.  People rioting over that would clearly be stupid.  But also be clear that rioters and protesters ain't the same thing, its just that everybody wants to conflate the two.   The problem of death due to criminal violence in poor communities and the problem of death by unjust use of excessive force on unarmed civilians by police are two different problems which require different responses.  When people say "where are the protests against gang violence", I honestly want to ask them "how stupid are you?"  Do you think a gang member gives a damn about a protest?  Everyone understands this logic when it comes to gun control, it don't control criminals, just the law abiding.  Same principle.  Excessive use of force by police? That problem can be addressed by protest, cuz police are supposed to uphold the law.  So when things happen that shouldn't and its time to have accountability, if officials don't do the right thing, protest is a reasonable strategy to make them do the right thing.  How anybody thinks protests will stop criminals from robbing or stealing or murdering somebody, I have no understanding of.  It doesn't make any sense.  but you love hearing a black person say it because it lines up with your preconceived notions.  What's really funny though is that you folks who cosign this silly argument of "why don't blacks protest crime" don't really give a damn about those black lives either.  You don't care about unarmed blacks unjustly killed by police and you don't care about black crime victims.  The way we know this is true is that you only talk about the latter in order to dismiss and ignore the former.

Having my first experience with Help My Mac here in Indy and so far, so good. Easy to communicate with, reasonable repair rates (certainly in comparison to Apple) and the owner is clearly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Apple products, all things I want to see in the person repairing my system. Clear communication about costs, which I appreciate. Looking forward to picking up my Macbook soon.
