This seriously sucks.  You would not think of Singapore as a heavily oppressive country, but what they are doing to this teenager is atrocious.  He made an awesome and eloquent youtube regarding his opinions of Lee Kuan Yew.  I would be proud to have a kid like this.  Now he is facing two years of forced "psychiatric" treatment.  He needs no treatment.  Let's do something about this --

The original youtube is on my profile or there are links in this article.  THIS CAN'T HAPPEN!!!!!
The Singaporean mother of detained teen blogger Amos Yee has written a heartfelt apology to her son, "Sorry for not teaching you well... Mummy is wrong."

thanks for this discussion--I think you have nailed down the situation a lot of us are in.  Lot's of phenomenal lenses, and high performance 'big cameras', confounded by the appeal of the new small Sonys'.  One comment in general on electronic view finders--to me, it's just not the same as optically looking through the lens, glass on glass. But, I just may be old fashioned.   Suggestion on the presentation, some simple graphics, even a flip chart with some of the models No's and main points.  But I found the discussion as is very watchable, and helpful because of the real world experience you bring, and the on target discussion.

Between gerrymandering and big money, we seem to have lost our representative government.

Listen to Elizabeth Warren get hot under the collar at Recode,  then watch this Frontline video about how the Chicken industry runs the USDA.  

It's out of control right now, and not looking very encouraging.

What Happened, 1967

1967 the continued presence of American troops increased further and a total of 475,000 were serving in Vietnam and the peace rallies were multiplying as the number of protesters against the war increased, and the Boxer Muhammad Ali was stripped of his boxing world championship for refusing to be inducted into the US Army. In the middle east Israel also went to war with Syria, Egypt and Jordan in the six day war and when it was over Israel controlled and occupied a lot more territory than before the war. Once again in the summer cities throughout America exploded in rioting and looting the worst being in Detroit where 7000 national Guard were bought in to restore law and order on the streets. In England a new type of model became a fashion sensation by the name of Twiggy and mini skirts continued to get shorter and even more popular with a short lived fashion being paper clothing. Also during this year new Discotheques and singles bars appeared across cities around the world and the Beatles continued to reign supreme with the release of "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band" album, and this year was also coined the summer of love when young teenagers got friendly and smoked pot and grooved to the music of "The Grateful Dead. Jefferson Airplane and The Byrds". The movie industry moved with the times and produced movies that would appeal to this younger audience including "The Graduate" Bonnie and Clyde" and "Cool Hand Luke" . TV shows included "The Fugitive" and "The Monkeys" and color television sets become popular as the price comes down and more programs are made in color.

It's amazing that he said this in 1970---He would have been in front of the curve if this was from today....
