Press freedom, freedom of speech, the right of individuals... when does protect the right of individuals start to become censorship?  How can the masses appeal against a decision that has been made against the courts.

I don't think it's an easy question.

And by posting this publicly have I caused an "issue" and will be reprimanded?

Though it is worth pointing that this is just one search engine.  There are plenty of others out there:  duck duck go; ask....

Ah, the law of unintended (but entirely predictable) consequences. These European Commission folks should have really thought about it. With about 250,000 request so far, Google probably took the easiest (and cheapest) path and followed the law exactly.

Sorry I've been a bit absent lately.  I'm trying to keep up with the posts and making sure any posts G+ accidentally spams get back out in the open again.  I've just switched work places, country and continents, so everything is a bit mad.  Thankfully the martial arts are constant. 

Should get all my stuff sorted by next week and be interacting with you all again.

Video of a Man Walking Backwards through Tokyo... Played in Reverse
Interesting. Initially I couldn't wrap my mind around it.

As you all know I shall be walking up Snowdon on Monday… hope the training was enough.

For those of you that have asked, here is the link again: https://www.givey.com/lusete
The link should work, think you pay with PayPal.

And this is the route I am taking… the video makes it look easy (as if!) Llanberis Path - Ascending Snowdon (aerial fly-through)

And if you are feeling really bored… this bloke made a video of his walk… the last part of the walk looks like will be the hardest… steps all the way to the top! Snowdon via Llanberis Path

Thank you to those who have donated already, I really appreciate it!

I really do not like the current layout of the radio iPlayer.  It's difficult to use, and seems determined not to let you find the program you want.  I had to resort to google to track down what I wanted - The Horne Section boradcast on Radio 4, last tuesday at 1830 hrs.

Chopping wood would certainly teach good body mechanics and build up strength!

Some thoughts on dojo discipline.
Katy Garden originally shared:
 
Dojo discipline, it would appear, is a touchy subject. Firstly on the existence of it, and secondly on how it is administered. Last year I was on a course which spent part of the afternoon training with a boken. Not everyone had a boken with them, but…
