Nieuws over drugs. Berghain: Adventures in Techno. About Megan Adams I have traded my life of Tex-Mex and warm weather in Austin, Texas (yes I was raised on a ranch and no, George Bush is technically from Connecticut) for the gezelling city of Amsterdam to pursue my MA in New Media from UvA.
Since graduating in 2006 with a Bachelor degree in Communication from St. Edward's University, I have thrown myself into the fast paced life of PR working at various levels across the technology and consumer sectors. Why new media? My professional interest in the program lies in understanding how new mediums and tools influence the communication landscape and why. In turn I hope to directly apply this "under the hood" insight to my PR approach. Over the past few weeks I have situated myself in Berlin on a mandate to take in and absorb all that is the music culture here. Having lived in Europe for almost one year I have become well versed in the techno genre of music via immersion. Dossier - Zero tolerance in de dance.

Video Art, Experimental Films and Music from the extreme remoteness of Papa Westray Papay Gyro Nights Art Festival 2014: Hong Kong, one of the city’s most monumental events of media and contemporary art, is making its third annual return next month.

Riding along this theme, this year’s Hong Kong edition will comprise a diverse range of activities, including curators talks, video art exhibitions, experimental film screenings, and live performances delivered by more than 10 internationally renowned artists. The Hong Kong edition of the festival is co-organized by Videotage and Papay Gyro Nights Art Festival (Orkney), in collaboration with NOVA (Northern Video Art Network), 700IS (Iceland), SKOGUL GONDUL (Norway) and FixC (Finland). ***Free Exotic Nordic Drinks will be served at the opening! Bummer. It is not hard to see how critics of the war on drugs got the impression that Barack Obama was sympathetic to their cause.
Throughout his public life as an author, law professor, and politician, Obama has said and done things that suggested he was not a run-of-the-mill drug warrior. In his 1995 memoir Dreams From My Father, the future president talked candidly about his own youthful drug use, in sharp contrast with the Democrat who then occupied the White House and the Republican who succeeded him. As an Illinois state senator in 2001, he criticized excessively harsh drug sentences and sponsored a bill that allowed nonviolent, low-level offenders to enter court-supervised treatment instead of going to jail, saying “we can’t continue to incarcerate ourselves out of the drug crisis.” As a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2004, Obama called the war on drugs “an utter failure” and advocated marijuana decriminalization.
Mercy for Drug Offenders This is not for lack of glaring injustices.
