Instead of crying about how the 1% bone us, how about actually doing something about it? Political reform is well within the public's power.

Political reform is well within the power of the public that has the most money.

To me it's incredibly disturbing that Zimmerman has essentially become a celebrity for committing racially aggravated murder. Sick world we live in.

That's awfully biased. Unfortunately you probably got all your information from the news who intentionally mislead the public to make the shooting appear to be racially motivated. NBC edited the phone call exchange between Zimmerman and the 911 dispatch making it appear like Zimmerman was only following Trayvon Martin because he was black. Zimmerman never mentioned to dispatch Trayvon was black until asked. You know who conveniently edited out the question where dispatch was asking for Trayvon's race? NBC.

And who knows who first edited pictures of Trayvon and Zimmerman, but somehow, someway, Zimmerman's picture had a higher contrast and brightness settings. Fact is Zimmerman is not a white man, he self-identifies as Hispanic. Even says so on his voting record. Feel free to search on Google for the Zimmerman's photoshopped picture. I guess that doesn't mean Zimmerman isn't racist, but the media sure didn't care one way or another. 

The tables actually can be flipped you know. I could easily say Trayvon Martin was the racist. Rachel Jeantel, a friend of Trayvon Martin and witness in the trial, said Trayvon called Zimmerman a "creepy-ass cracker." She was on the phone with Trayvon shortly before he was shot. Yeah, Zimmerman isn't any more racist than Trayvon. 

Lastly, seems like the media decide to selectively cover the information presented in the trial. Did you know that Trayvon was actually suspended from school a few days prior from his death? It's true, an apparently it's because he assaulted his school bus driver. Trayvon was also suspended twice before that very same year. Twice. That's three times in one year if you're not counting. Once because he stole a bag of women's jewelry. Trayvon was far from just some innocent model student who wouldn't hurt a fly. Trayvon is 6'2" and 160 pounds. Zimmerman barely outweighs him at 170 pounds. Trayvon is a football player. The idea that Trayvon is some scrawny kid is a lie. Are you sure the Zimmerman could overpower this kid? Zimmerman could really overpower somebody roughly his same weight who actively works out? Get real. It's very likely Zimmerman's only defense was his gun.

There were several breakins reported in the neighborhood that month. Zimmerman was on watch duty. He followed somebody that looked suspicious and that person then attacked the neighborhood watch. That person easily overpowered the neighborhood watch so the neighborhood watch shot him. Doesn't sound so racist if you leave out their race, does it? 

I don't know if Zimmerman is innocent, but I do know it's ignorant to assume he's a racist without knowing the evidence. I can agree that it's disgusting he's profiting off this kid's death, but that doesn't make him a racist.

TL;DR: Zimmerman isn't any more racist than Trayvon Martin.

Sky Go customer complaints response is a slap in the face. Months of lies and terrible customer service compounded by more lies.

Very excited about both. ESO is going to be massive, the subscription model makes for much better games than the FTP model. For the amount of time the average user spends playing such a game, it's definitely worth it. Elder Scrolls + MMORPG = yes please. Plus it's in an original style. More action and skill based than the average MMORPG. Destiny is another very exciting game, although it seems so ambitious I wonder what it will be like in practice. ESO is my choice, but it's a close one.

Hmmm, guys take 5 seconds to get dressed. We open the wardrobe and grab the first thing we see.

Big week in technology, first Google Glass gets more airtime, Microsoft demoing their Kinect based projection interface technology, and now 'holographic' patents. Meanwhile all the news has been focused on a slightly larger screen.

My advice would be to not use Letts Agree, we were ignored for months when there were serious flaws with the flat. They refused to supply a second set of expensive keys for 2 tenants. The only time we received prompt contact was when they claimed we had taken things from the property after vacating it.
