Fewer New Yorkers are cycling: city report

Náhled

The number of New Yorkers who regularly ride a bicycle dropped 5 percent in the last two years, data released by the city Tuesday showed. Approximately 787,000 adult city residents rode at last once a month in fiscal year 2019 — down from 828,000 two years earlier, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s annual “Mayor’s... Číst dále >>>

years today first episode M*A*S*H* aired

On this date in 1972, the American TV comedy-drama series "MASH" aired its first pilot episode on CBS. It ran for 11 seasons (1972-83), and was based on the 1970 MASH movie (which, in turn, was based on Richard Hooker's 1968 book). The show struggled during the 1st year, but CBS stayed with it, and the ratings improved. Its final episode drew the largest audience to date for a television episode. Stories persist that the last episode was seen by so many people that the New York City Sanitation/Public Works Department reported the plumbing systems broke down in some parts of the city from so many New Yorkers waiting until the end of the show to use the toilet. Set in South Korea during the Korean War, M*A*S*H followed the medical staff who cared for the wounded in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital. Initially, the series focused on the characters in Altman's film, with the two lead roles being the army surgeons Capt. Benjamin Franklin ("Hawkeye") Pierce (played by Alan Alda) and Capt. ("Trapper") John McIntyre (Wayne Rogers). Although talented physicians, Hawkeye and Trapper were unlikely soldiers. Both had nonconformist personalities and strong affinities for nurses and bootleg liquor. Their antics routinely outraged their straitlaced superior officers: Maj. Margaret ("Hot Lips") Houlihan (Loretta Swit), the ranking nurse; Maj. Frank Burns (Larry Linville), their nemesis during the 1972-77 seasons; and Maj. Charles Emerson Winchester ( Ogden Stiers), their foil from 1977 until the end of the series. The base was officially commanded by incompetent but genial Lieut. Col. Henry Blake (McLean Stevenson) and later in the series (1975-83) by irascible Col. Sherman Potter (Harry Morgan). However, the base's operation was held together by the company clerk, Corp. "Radar" O'Reilly (Gary Burghoff, reprising the role he had played in the film). Another corporal, Max Klinger (Jamie Farr), frequently cross-dressed in the hope that it would earn him a medical discharge and flight home. Despite cast changes during the course of its run-including the departure of Rogers, replaced as Hawkeye's partner in crime by Capt. B.J. Honeycutt, played by Mike Farrell-the series maintained its continuity through consistently strong performances and writing (mostly by producer Larry Gelbart). The complex characters were able to learn and grow over time, evolving in a style seldom seen in sitcoms. The series was also unique in its use of multiple plotlines, visually handled by longer takes and tracking shots that changed direction as the story line moved from one character to another. Though set during an earlier war, M*A*S*H aired during and in the wake of the Vietnam War, and the anti-war message was never far from viewers' minds. Vid is from the pilot episode/intro. Trivia: keen-eyed viewers may notice that "Radar" (Burghoff) briefly reveals his birth deformity (partial fingers on his left hand), which he tried to conceal throughout the remainder of the series.

Bill Gates says he regrets meeting Epstein after his conviction and agreeing to donate $2m to MIT

Náhled

Bill Gates says he regrets meeting Epstein after his conviction and agreeing to donate $2m to MIT Bill Gates said he regrets meeting with Jeffrey Epstein and giving a $2 million donation to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) through him after the financier was convicted of sex offences. Mr Gates, who co-founded Microsoft, met with Epstein in 2013, five years after he pleaded guilty to two charges of soliciting a minor for prostitution, and later made an an anonymous donation to MIT's Media Lab. Focus has fallen on the pair's relationships after US media reports suggested Epstein used proxies to make $7.5 million in donations to the prestigious institution after he was removed from MIT's official donor database. It emerged last week that Mr Gates made a $2 million donation to the MIT Media Lab in October 2014, which he requested to be recorded as an anonymous donation.  According to a leaked email seen by the New Yorker, the Media Lab's director, Joi Ito, wrote to a colleague: “This is a $2M gift from Bill Gates directed by Jeffrey Epstein”.  However Mr Gates has denied the donation was made at Epstein's behest, with a spokesperson saying “any claim that Epstein directed any programmatic or personal grant making for Bill Gates is completely false.” Jeffrey Epstein was convicted of sex offences in 2008 Credit: AP And in an interview with Axios this week, Mr Gates expressed regret over his link to Epstein, saying "I wish I hadn't met with him". Mr Gates said Epstein was introduced to him "as somebody who could bring more people into philanthropy". He added: "There were meetings along those lines. That didn't materialise, and so then I stopped meeting with him."   Asked if he felt used by Epstein, Mr Gates said: "I'd say I didn't have a ... business or personal relationship - I wouldn't go that far." MIT's media lab has faced public backlash after it emerged that senior figures in the research laboratory had concealed the extent of its contact and fundraising ties with Epstein.  Shortly after the New Yorker published leaked internal emails, Mr Ito resigned as director of the lab and as an employee of the institution. MIT said it had launched an independent investigations into the lab's alleged links to Epstein.  Yesterday a computer scientist, Richard Stallman, also resigned from MIT after he appeared to suggest having sex with a minor does not constitute assault an in leaked comments about one of Epstein's alleged victims.  An MIT graduate, Selam Jie Gano, shared the emails online in a post calling for Mr Stallman's removal. According to her post, Mr Stallman was discussing Marvin Minsky, a deceased MIT academic, accused of assaulting one of Epstein's alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre. Ms Giuffre has alleged in court documents that Epstein sent her to have sex with Mr Minsky. Mr Stallman argued that Mr Minsky had not actually assaulted her because there is no suggestion that "he applied force or violence". In the emails, the computer scientist said that “the most plausible scenario is that she presented herself to him as entirely willing" while "being coerced by Epstein".  He went on to argue that sexual assault is a "vague" definition and questioned whether it applied to Mr Minsky, before going to say “it is morally absurd to define ‘rape’ in a way that depends on minor details such as which country it was in or whether the victim was 18 years old or 17.” Announcing his immediate resignation, Mr Stallman said the move was down to “pressure on MIT and me over a series of misunderstandings and mischaracterisations”.

V poslední době se o tomto filmu, natočeném dle knihy pana Jerzy Kosinského, dost mluví a protože není kouře bez ohně, tak by bylo dobré se podívat na to, co nám tento proces říká z hlediska řízení společnosti. Takto definuje daný film jeho tvůrce pan Marhoul: „Nabarvené ptáče je hluboce dramatický příběh zaobírající se bezprostředním

Henry Ford byl v prvé řadě člověk, podnikatelem byl až na druhém místě

Daniel Novák 16.09.2019, 18:03

H. Ford byl de jure soukromým vlastníkem, ale de-facto vnímal svoje podniky jako majetek společnosti. Proto když uzavíral kupní/prodejní smlouvy a plánovitě snižoval ceny na produkci, vycházel z cíle služby společnosti. Jednoduše na svých závodech a železnici Henry Ford zavedl osmihodinový pracovní den a garantovaný plat, a zdokonalujíc dílo, které vedl na tomto organizačním základě,

Srbského filmového režiséra světového formátu Emira Kusturicu českému čtenáři netřeba představovat. Našemu publiku je kromě filmové tvorby znám i svými politickými názory. Kusturica mluví česky, vystudoval totiž pražskou FAMU. A zde začíná náš příběh. Podle zjištění redakce totiž pražská filmová fakulta uvažuje, že se od svého slavného absolventa distancuje.

Kozel zahradníkem

Jaroslav Tichý 17.09.2019, 01:10

Před nedávnem došlo po velkých a nesmyslných tahanicích způsobených nestandardním postupem předsedy ČSSD v souvislosti s výměnou nominanta ČSSD na pozici ministra kultury ke jmenování L. Zaorálka na tento post. Prý proto, že jde o zkušeného ministra. Je-li tomu tak, pak nepotřebuje žádných 100 dní hájení. Pojďme se tedy podívat již nyní na počínání nového pana ministra po jeho nástupu do funkce. Stihl toho již docela dost.

Fake news posloužily k ospravedlnění totální války: výmysl o bosensko-srbském „táboru smrti“

Autor neuveden 16.09.2019, 01:10

Poprvé publikováno na webu Global Research 15. července 2015. Článek je staršího data, zařazuji jej za poslední článek Michala Branda Alan Kurdi jako symbol, abych ukázal, že falešné a úmyslně naaranžované fotky, které hýbou veřejným míněním a mění směr událostí, nejsou neobvyklé. Mainstream sahá k těmto desinformacím často a beze studu. No, hlavně že na ČT1 běží ve chvíli, kdy toto píši (neděle 22:20) propagandistický pořad To se ví, který „zábavnou formou odhaluje „falešné zprávy“. Editor

Alan Kurdi jako symbol

Michal Brand 14.09.2019, 01:10

K dnešní úvaze mne inspiroval komentář Tomáše Vyorala a jeho komentář k Alanu Kurdimu a symbolice jeho smrti a fotky. Alan Kurdi, ten malý syrský chlapec, který se utopil v Egejském moři. Jeho fotografie oblétly svět. Měly to být fotografie, které změní svět, jak psala pro-migrantská propaganda. A svým způsobem to tak i být může. Alan Kurdi je totiž opravdu symbolem. Pojďme se podívat na jeho příběh. A na fakta. Připravte se na tvrdou, hořkou realitu – daleko horší, než líčila mas-mediální propaganda.

Vtip a realita

Jaroslav Tichý 13.09.2019, 01:59

Podle některých odborných definic „vtip, anekdota, popřípadě fór, je krátké vyprávění, jehož účelem je pobavit příjemce (posluchače či čtenáře). Obvykle je založen na dvojznačnosti, absurditě nebo paradoxu, je stručný a směřuje k výrazné a úderné pointě. S ohledem na krátkost toho následujícího vyprávění zůstaňme u pojmu vtip. Příklad vtipu z filmu „Sedm statečných“: - muž vypadne z 10. patra činžáku; - a zatímco padá, v každém patře si říká, zatím je to v pořádku.

Obchodní války jsou hrou blázna

Eric Margolis 12.09.2019, 01:10

Podle brilantního vojenského myslitele, generálmajora J.F.C. Fullera, „cílem války není vítězství. Je jím dosažení politických cílů.“ Věčná škoda, že prezident Donald Trump nečte knihy. Zahájil ekonomické války proti Číně, Rusku, Íránu, Kubě a Venezuele bez jakéhokoli jasného strategického cíle, až na to, že se nafouklo jeho ego coby světového předního vojenského vůdce, a že tyto státy potrestal za jejich neposlušnost.

Pokud existuje něco jako vražedná kultura, pak je v Izraeli

Gideon Levy 11.09.2019, 01:10

Tohle napsal Benny Ziffer, redaktor přílohy Kultura a literatura izraelského deníku Haaretz, na své facebookové stránce poté, co se vrátil z osady Ofra, kterou navštívil v souvislosti s projevem soustrasti: „Cestou jsem se díval na palestinské vesnice podél židovských komunit, a pomyslel jsem si, že pro Palestince je vražda něco jako sport nebo zábava, možná je to náhražka za erotiku. Z tohoto hlediska s nimi nikdy nebudeme mít nic kulturně společného.“
