Awesome t-shirt for "old" students who remember Drake's, which closed while I was at U of Michigan. Limeade... yum. The Brueggers Bagel that replaced it still has old photos of the Sandwich shop on the wall. In Drake's earlier years, it even offered delivery by car. Domino's wasn't first to offer delivery, or even close.
Drake’s Sandwich Shop was owned and run by the eccentric Truman Tibbals from 1935 until it closed in 1993 just before his death. In addition to sandwiches and tea, it was known for limeade, penny candy and its diverse, loyal clientele — from college students to cops and everyone in between. Drake’s had a prime location on N. University facing the Diag, super easy to get to between classes. Neighborhood kids would peruse comics for sale while camp...

Official Google Blog: Introducing the News Lab

"It’s hard to think of a more important source of information in the world than quality journalism. At its best, news communicates truth to power, keeps societies free and open, and leads to more informed decision-making by people and leaders. In the past decade, better technology and an open Internet have led to a revolution in how news is created, distributed, and consumed. And given Google’s mission to ensure quality information is accessible and useful everywhere, we want to help ensure that innovation in news leads to a more informed, more democratic world.

That’s why we’ve created the News Lab, a new effort at Google to empower innovation at the intersection of technology and media. Our mission is to collaborate with journalists and entrepreneurs to help build the future of media. And we’re tackling this in three ways: though ensuring our tools are made available to journalists around the world (and that newsrooms know how to use them); by getting helpful Google data sets in the hands of journalists everywhere; and through programs designed to build on some of the biggest opportunities that exist in the media industry today."

Hacks/Hackers launches global program for media entrepreneurs

A new initiative called Hacks/Hackers Connect launches today, aiming to offer a series of free one-day events for media entrepreneurs.

The program is a partnership between Hacks/Hackers and the News Lab at Google, and aims to support journalists and technologists by enabling them to learn from each other and receive mentoring from key figures in the industry.

"Our aim is to spark the next generation of media start-ups", said Burt Herman, co-founder of Hacks/Hackers.

The idea behind the project is to give people who are passionate about innovation and the future of media a chance to interact easily, whether they are "start-up veterans who've been in the trenches" or people with a current job looking to bring an idea to life.
...
"We need the things that journalism did in order to have a functioning democratic society", Herman pointed out, "even if the future doesn't look like what conventional journalism looked like in the past."
The free event series called Hacks/Hackers Connect, developed in collaboration with the News Lab at Google, will offer support and mentoring

Nice!

"We’re excited to team up with Google to bring Twitter’s unique, real-time content to Google’s search results. Starting today, U.S. users searching in English will see relevant Tweets in their search results within the Google app (iOS and Android) and mobile web. The desktop web version is coming shortly, and we have plans to bring this feature to more countries in the coming months."

June 26, 2015 UN Day for Victims of Torture

"‘Torture continues to be one of the darkest realities of our times. It is a horrific and gruesome practice happening around the world, typically clouded in secrecy and matched with impunity’, said the OMCT Secretary General on the occasion of the UN Day for Victims of Torture.

Torture breaks the individuals it is inflicted upon leaving traces for the rest of their lives and very often destroys the very fabric of societies. It corrupts our institutions and legal systems if we leave it - as so often - unaddressed."
Press Release: UN Day for Victims of Torture: No more time for indifference on torture! Geneva, Tunis, Brussels, 25 June 2015. On the eve of the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture the principal global civil society coalition against torture recalls the plight of ...

Secretary of State John Kerry said: "The fact is, an individual’s aspiration to be free may be the most single powerful force on Earth. It’s an aspiration that may be able to be slowed sometimes, maybe intimidated sometimes, it may even be eliminated temporarily by violence in certain cases. But I’m telling you its power within the human soul is so infectious that it will always resurface in one form or another, even in the most extraordinary circumstances.

And history – history has proven that again and again and again. Throughout history, we have seen that men and women will do whatever it takes to find a way to make their desire for freedom known. We saw that with the authors of the pamphlets that helped to spark the revolution that gave birth to my home country in the 1700s. We saw it with the dissidents writing newsletters and producing radio broadcasts behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. And we see it today, in places all over the world, where young people are challenging injustice – armed only with their smart phones.

The internet is, among many other things, an instrument of freedom. It’s a tool people resort to in response to the absence and failure or abuse of government. So of course, some leaders are afraid of it. They’re afraid of the internet in the same way that their predecessors were afraid of newspapers, books, and the radio, but even more so because in this case, because of the interactivity that allows for a free-flowing discussion and the exchange of views – activities that can, and often do, lead to change."
