Kind of amazing what you can do with enough money

Can someone people give  this once over for me?

The way I read this is: Sesame Street will first run on HBO (WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?!?) then go PBS after nine months of pay to watch, children's non-profit TV.

Yes, there will be more shows per year but once more, I say: How?!? WHY?!? WTF?!?

#wtf   #pbs   #hbo  
LOS ANGELES — The Muppets, longtime residents of PBS, are getting a second home at HBO.

Business sense is the reason and I do understand that +Richard Orth money is needed to make shows.

Yet, somehow the BBC makes great shows without commercials or sponsorship and that's how I think of PBS - could be.

I'm not saying that Sesame Workshop shouldn't do what's right for them business wise, I just think they should not allow any content to be held hostage. 

+Al Middleton shows an example of the trend so, I guess I'm just behind the times. My kids grew up a decade ago which would explain things :-)

All the fans can take the weekend off

One person is the leading the charge of belief that Tesla stock should be so overvalued.

He is the Godzilla of cheerleaders.

Clearly, the is a distinct difference between a great product, a fantastic vision and a stock's value.

When speculation leaves analysis and logic aside, it is no longer speculation.

Unless, that speculator has insider knowledge which is illegal, right?

Not when everyone is making profits.

In that case greed, belief and irrationally based prophecies are the siren's call for zealots.

Or just another day on Wall Street.

Bringing Indigenous traditions back to schools

More than a century ago, it was stripped away.

This school year, under the control of the Tiwa tribe and funded by the federal government (as it has been for over 100 years) a school day will be very different.

"The Tiwa culture and language is going to be a part of the daily activities,” said Frank Fast Wolf, the new principal at Isleta Elementary. “It’s going to be meshed with what we do during the day.”

Never happened to me, not even a little

Given the patrol cars slow down to see what the crowd is about and then keep right on rolling.

More than few times, they've stopped to take a look with us and thanked me for doing something so cool.

Just goes to show, even the cops who deal with the violent mentally ill, drug addicts, chronic homeless and other dangerous/disruptive suspects on a hourly basis, are not ready to jump to the worst possible conclusion.

This was the ONLY version of the story that included the police being "apologetic" for the misunderstanding.

I dislike reporting that cherry picks or edits stories to slant them towards fear/hate mongering and refuse to re-post those versions.

Take a look at this same story floating around G+ from other sources and you'll see my point.

Apathy is a now a superpower

Basically, if you're weak (emotional) or a fool (ignorant) , you don't deserve what you have (money) and taking it from you is skill to mastered.

Similar to the victorious in war, the conquerer in colonization and the corporation in consumer market..

What could possibly be wrong with a global finance system that makes provisions for the snake oil salesman, grifter & con artist?

The man has to buy his wine...
While a lot of investors were hitting the panic button Monday, a Japanese day trader who’d made a big bet against the market timed the bottom almost perfectly and narrated a play-by-play of the trade to his 40,000 Twitter followers. He claims to have walked away with $34 million.

A daily occurance

Any sort of apocalypse will do.

Even primates, dolphin or cockroach overlords.

I'm OK with an enslaved humanity that can't talk.

A step in the right direction, we've already done the all male mission.

Attended a friend's birthday party in the back room of Cafe Europa and enjoyed one delicious appetizer after another complimented by a well chosen assortment of wines and beers. Staff were friendly, attentive making excellent suggestions to those unfamiliar with the menu. Fourteen entrees arrived quickly and well prepared. Each one I sampled was as tasty as the last and a wonderful celebration was made all the better with a great food, great service and cozy atmosphere.

Find what you want without knowing what you're looking for. This is the new benchmark for Comic Book stores. Neat, tidy, easy to browse and expansive in a way a store ten times it's size couldn't hope to be. They ordered a few hard to find issues, cheerfully, made new customers feel welcome and were proud of their hard work. Online sellers should be worried: this store gives the customer value and selection with and experience that is impossible to duplicate over the internet.

Delicious food matched with an exquisite selection of tequila. Family owned and it shows. Comfortable, attentive and authentic. When they make their own tequila, you be sure the food is well matched and perpared with care.

For the person who looks for not just something they need or something to buy, this store is nirvana. From the fair trade and economically empowering items to the local artists like Nadhi Chanani, the funky yet adorable baby onesies and the engaging staff; this store is your one-stop shop for being a consumer for a cause.
