I use this app nearly every time I'm in a car, but I found it especially useful in Puerto Rico and Italy.
 
Which of these is your favorite? 
What I love most about Waze, however, is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Waze is now owned by Google, and many of the great features of Waze — such as warnings about traffic jams, hidden police cars, and road closures — have been integrated into Google Maps. Most navigation programs give you the ability to choose either a male or female voice in the audio settings, but how many of them offer you Elvis Presley?

When did you stop dancing?
"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a shaman or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence? Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experience the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves."

"The NSA is to the Stasi what a bad hotel is to a prison. It is not what a government does with data that defines it, it is what it does to human beings". Garry Kasparov on Snowden as an apologist for Putin's brutal, dictatorial regime.
Whistleblower, traitor, hero, villain, Snowden may be many things at once but his apologies for the brutal record of Putin and the Russian state are inexcusable.

Fabulous news!
 
F.C.C. Approves Net Neutrality Rules, Classifying Broadband Internet Service as a Utility

The Federal Communications Commission voted on Thursday to regulate broadband Internet service as a public utility, a milestone in regulating high-speed Internet service into American homes.

Tom Wheeler, the commission chairman, said the F.C.C. was using “all the tools in our toolbox to protect innovators and consumers” and preserve the Internet’s role as a “core of free expression and democratic principles.”

The F.C.C. is taking this big regulatory step by reclassifying high-speed Internet service as a telecommunications service, instead of an information service, under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. The Title II classification comes from the phone company era, treating service as a public utility.
The agency’s 3-2 vote is intended to ensure a level playing field for Internet content providers, with no so-called pay-to-play fast lanes.

#xkcd  








I'd like to find a corpus of writing writing from children in a non-self-selected sample (e.g. handwritten letters to the president from everyone in the same teacher's 7th grade class every year)--and score the kids today versus the kids 20 years ago on various objective measures of writing quality. I've heard the idea that exposure to all this amateur peer practice is hurting us, but I'd bet on the generation that conducts the bulk of their social lives via the written word over the generation that occasionally wrote book reports and letters to grandma once a year, any day.

...[T]urning points in language both reflect and facilitate acceptance of the wholesale bombing of neighborhoods, hospitals, and schools....Israel has two moral paths open before it. One path, to be taken with all those committed to a just peace, leads to a higher form of community; the other leads to a very dark place. The soul of a nation is in the balance.

This has been unresolved for far too long.
 
Journalists seven years in jail for reporting on turmoil in Egypt
Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy, and Baher Mohamed were found guilty of aiding the Muslim Brotherhood, while doing their work for Al Jazeera English.

They got arrested in Egypt during the aftermath of the coup against president Mohamed Morsi. Apparently BBC podcasts and a song by Gotye were used as 'evidence' of their false reporting.

The court also sentenced a number of other journalists to 10-year sentences in absentia, including British journalists and Dutch journalist Rena Netjes who doesn't work for Al Jazeera.

Our governments should tell Egypt that journalism is not a crime. Let them know your concern by sharing with #FreeAJStaff as tag

Note that ten thousands of Egyptians have been arrested in the wake of the regime change. Newly elected president el-Sissi should hear from his Western allies that justice is a right for every citizen.

To: Craig Newmark (Craigslist, Founder), John Donahoe (eBay, CEO), Jim Buckmaster (Craigslist, CEO). Every 30 seconds, a cyclist has their bike stolen in the United States. Nearly half of college students with bicycles will lose them during their education. Bicycle theft is rampant in the United ...

This is especially true in Oregon. While we don't have a Whole Foods in Corvallis, we do have two food co-ops selling the same pseudo-scientific snake oil to an eagerly gullible public.
Americans get riled up about creationists and climate change deniers, but lap up the quasi-religious snake oil at Whole Foods.
