Watch until the ending.

President Obama's Climate Change "Anger Translator"

President Obama brought his "anger translator" to +The White House Correspondents Dinner. One of the topics was climate change, including the California drought. The clip shows what the Anger Translator (Keegan-Michael Key of +Comedy Central 's "Key and Peel" has to say (go to 3:00). Here is our paper providing some of the scientific evidence that global warming is influencing the drought:

Jet Boy's Fly.

This mix of the New York Dolls' performance on the BBC's Old Grey Whistle Test seems to incorporate different camera angles and a sparkier sound then the version I just watched on BBC4.

At the time my Mam and Dad were somewhat concerned about the show after that. I think it was because I had picked up, quite independently, a certain aesthetic sensibility in common with the Dolls.

It was quite easy for a sixteen-year-old boy to be very androgynous in those days, because glam rock was everywhere, but it was also bound to raise eyebrows within the immediate family. But I wore the clothes my mother bought for me, in all truth. It's so easy to be a gender rebel if your mother wants a gender rebel! Thanks, Mam.

FreeBSD has LibreSSL in ports, but the base system is still using OpenSSL. Is anybody here using LibreSSL in FreeBSD?

This blog post shows how to install the ports version of OpenSSH and tweak it to use LibreSSL.

LibreSSL a year on: is it an improvement?

In April, 2014 the developers of the OpenBSD system were galvanised by a notorious failing in an underfunded third party network security system that they had relied on, but not really examined closely, for years: OpenSSL.

The LibreSSL project was one of several responses by the open source community to the bad state of OpenSSL. Google open source developers independently forked OpenSSL for their own purposes, and the Linux Foundation searched under the sofa and raised a tiny amount of cash (though large by open source standards) to help the OpenSSL Foundation to employ more coders and audit their source.

A year later, the open source community is still divided on whether OpenBSD did the right thing. Was the LibreSSL fork a wise decision?

Some ports continue to use base openssl instead of ports!

This is the oldest footage of London ever. Includes amazing old footage, plus modern shots of the same location today. Also features maps carefully researched to show where the camera was. Arranged by location, 46 shots of classic footage with a twist and an inspiring soundtrack.

If anybody can make a film to talk about what one-third of all American women go through at some point in their lives, it's Lily Tomlin.

An observational comic with skill and experience, whom all of us instinctively take to our hearts.
 
Abortion comedy?
"Grandma" is the latest film that finds humor in the often difficult to discuss subject.

Queen Bitch.

David Bowie rocking out in this middle period piece still reminiscent of his stirring Hard Rock album The Man Who Sold The World. The outfit he's wearing and the band are both early Ziggy, the one he's wearing on the album cover, but the song is from a more interesting album, Hunky Dory.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

Stay until the guitar solo at 1m26s on the first video. Then you'll want to read Belle Waring's article.

And of course there's also Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sister_Rosetta_Tharpe

“Wait until I tell everyone in my high school. This changes everything.”

It's still depressing that some schools just show films to their students when no teacher is available, instead of letting them out into the world to live, breathe and do healthy things.
I once knew a young woman who was in high school and shall remain nameless. One day I picked her up at school to drive her home, and asked how she was doing. “Depressed, actually,” she said. “Why, did something go wrong at school?” “Kinda,” she replied. “The social studies teacher was out today.” “That’s…
