I can't take credit for this, it was written by my high school English teacher... but I think it's smart and right and wish everyone on Reddit would read it: To all of my colleagues involved in the issues of same-sex marriage, legalizing pot and assuring women's reproductive rights: I support your causes and believe in the rightness of them. I also feel they are starting to drown out the much larger issues: - illegal wars for profit - the rape of our environment - increasing inequity worldwide - worldwide corruption of governments and the rule of law by corporatist fascists The current political and media propaganda is feeding these other important but more personal, sexual and social issues precisely because they distract us from the larger problems. Are politicians distracting us with hot button issues like Gay Marriage and Pot Legalization? : self

Should mention this, in Quebec the way it works is they cannot charge you an early termination fee. My carrier lists the Galaxy Nexus as 599. It was "149" after the discounted rate with $200 credited towards my first bill (so its still $149). So at this point its 599-149 = $450 hardware off for signing a 3 year contract. Each month of the contact (36 months) counts towards that $450, so its broken down to $12.50 per month. For the simplicity of math, lets say that after 18 months I decide I no longer want to be with my carrier, I would have to pay for $12.50x18 = $225.

Leaked Messages Allege Chris Brown Had Gay Sex; Is a Bottom "Ruh roh." It’s not a good day to be Chris Brown. That is, unless he’s happy to see his private messages discussing how R&B songwriter Martyn “fcked the shit outta me” appear across the interwebs. Ouch. Real talk, we’ve never heard of the guy either, but it looks like he’s a pretty legit songwriter. It looks like one of Martyn’s assistants took screenshots of direct messages between the two fellas, and has shared them for all the world to see.

Etymology Scholars do not agree about its etymology, but it is theorized that Mammon derives from Late Latin mammon, from Greek "μαμμωνάς", Syriac mámóna ("riches"), Aramaic mamon ("riches, money"), a loanword from Mishnaic Hebrew 'ממון (mmôn) meaning money, wealth, or possessions; although it may also have meant "that in which one trusts". The Greek word for "Mammon", μαμμωνάς, occurs in the Sermon on the Mount (during the discourse on ostentation) and in the parable of the Unjust Steward (Luke 16:9–13). Mammon

The Best Video Player for Android A couple other notable pros/cons I've found with BSPlayer (free vsn) and MX Player, which I agree are the top 2 Android players. I've compared both with all players mentioned in this article. - BSPlayer handles high-bitrate MKVs better than anything else and has a much lower default display brightness vs. other players (this can be a pro or con, depending on your battery life concerns) - MX Player can output much higher volume than those mentioned On a side note, I'm surprised Archos (free vsn) wasn't mentioned in here as well.
Significant anniversaries are solemnly commemorated - Japan’s attack on the US naval base at Pearl Harbor, for example. Others are ignored, and we can often learn valuable lessons from them about what is likely to lie ahead. Right now, in fact. At the moment, we are failing to commemorate the 50th anniversary of President John F Kennedy’s decision to launch the most destructive and murderous act of aggression of the post-World War II period: the invasion of South Vietnam, later all of Indochina, leaving millions dead and four countries devastated, with casualties still mounting from the long-term effects of drenching South Vietnam with some of the most lethal carcinogens known, undertaken to destroy ground cover and food crops.

Considering that my son has a longstanding crush on Glee's Blaine and regularly refers to him as "my boyfriend," I thought there was a fair chance that he would someday say, "I'm gay." But my kid is only 7 years old. I figured I had a few years before we crossed that threshold (if we ever did), probably when he was 14 or 15. I never thought it would happen this soon. Six months ago "gay" wasn't even a word in my son's vocabulary. Amelia: When Your 7-Year-Old Son Announces, 'I'm Gay'

Zephyr jailbreak tweak adds multitasking gestures to iPhone – Cell Phones & Mobile Device Technology News & Updates If you’re an iOS user, you probably give your home button (and your thumb) a grueling workout on a daily basis. Every time you want to use multitasking to switch apps, you have to double-tap the lone physical button on the device’s front face. Apple has implemented multitasking gestures for the iPad, but has done no such thing for the iPhone or iPod touch. You can rack another one up for the jailbreak community, as it has released a new app that allows you to multitask on the iPhone with single-finger gestures.
Developer Surenix has updated AndroidLoader for iOS 5. AndroidLoader is a jailbreak tweak that allows you to access all the apps installed on your iPhone with a single tap, just like Android’s All Apps launcher. AndroidLoader auto hides the iPhone dock and replaces it with a new circular button. You can either tap or swipe on that button to access all the apps installed on your iPhone. Tapping in the iPhone dock area around the circular button, brings up the auto-hidden iPhone dock. AndroidLoader: Jailbreak Tweak Brings Android-Like All Apps Launcher to iPhone
