This is interesting
Usually, when we say “American slavery” or the “American slave trade,” we mean the American colonies or, later, the United States. But as we discussed in Episode 2 of Slate’s History of American Slavery Academy, relative to the entire slave trade, North America was a bit player. From the trade’s...

This would be a cool thing for those of us in rural America who are stuck with slow speed Internet.
 
SpaceX founder files with government to provide Internet service from space

Elon Musk’s space company has asked the federal government for permission to begin testing on an ambitious project to beam Internet service from space, a significant step forward for an initiative that could create another major competitor to Comcast, AT&T and other telecom companies.

The plan calls for launching a constellation of 4,000 small and cheap satellites that would beam high-speed Internet signals to all parts of the globe, including its most remote regions. Musk has said the effort “would be like rebuilding the Internet in space.”
Elon Musk’s idea is to use small, cheap satellites, solving the problem of costs that predecessors faced.

One only has to read the drivel posted on Fakebook to know most people don't read.

<rant>
Most are caught up in some stupid reality show or game show or obsessing over the latest watering hole or entertainment spot for doofus hipsters to open up.

Come to think of it, I can't remember the last new physical book I purchased. :(
Most of the books I have are digital and I carry them with me everywhere.
I haunt the Friends of the local libraries used bookstores for the classics that aren't on digital.

If you want to stop ad blockers, the best way way would be to stop intrusive ads...like not allowing popup ads or autoplaying flash ads or autoplaying videos or ads that blink and distract you from the web page content.

If I am not able to use an ad blocker that blocks this type of ads...then I'll be closing the tab on web pages that have annoying ads and not even bother reading the content.

I am tired of people who only pay attention to just the soundbites they hear (and read) and the Legacy News Media that is only interested in producing soundbites or short excerpted coverage (mostly cherry-picked)  in the case of newspapers and radio.

This is why I prefer to produce full videos of meetings and events. It gives context to what is going on, and can show people (the ones who pay attention) where TV, Radio and Newspapers skew coverage of everything so that their coverage do not accurately reflect what occurred.

I recently covered a press conference and then watched some of the reporting on the event and was appalled at the inaccurate information that was reported and the distortion applied to a straightforward story.

Do these reporters (in this case, the TV Reporters)  come equipped with a mental mechanism to skew and hype? Or is this something they learn at J-School?

This is VERY cool.

excerpt:
"Starting this week, Big Bang Theory and The Chuck Lorre Family Foundation have established The Big Bang Theory Scholarship Endowment—valued at $4 million dollars.
The endowment will go directly to 20 low-income students entering the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields at UCLA this year and then benefit five new students each academic year in perpetuity. The inaugural class will be announced this fall at the show’s set in Burbank, CA with cast and crew in attendance."
And people say TV will rot your brain: Yesterday, CBS’ The Big Bang Theory made waves—and history—when showrunner Chuck Lorre (Mom, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly) revealed that he plans on taking the award-winning program’s scientific slant from fiction to reality. Starting this week, Big Bang Theory and The Chuck Lorre Family Foundation have established The Big Bang Theory Scholarship Endowment—valued at $4 million dollars. The endowment will...
