Opinion: What if the government guaranteed you an income? - -
Opinion: What if the government guaranteed you an income? -
"A monthly cash payment to every American, no questions asked, would solve several of our most daunting challenges. It's called a basic income, and it's cheaper and much more effective than our current malfunctioning safety net, which costs nearly $1 trillion per year. The idea of a basic income, sometimes called a guaranteed minimum income or a negative income tax, has been discussed for decades by notable economists like Milton Friedman. In the late 1960s and 1970s, the idea had bipartisan backing before losing steam. Recently, in the face of a sputtering economy, a weak job market and rising income inequality, it has been gathering supporters at an ever-quickening pace." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
I haven't read much on the realities of this theory but it sounds like something to at least look further into. - Steve C

'The power of music': Musicians bring concerts to bedridden man -
"The 35-year-old man from Farmington, Maine, has been confined to a bed for two years, due to a medical condition stemming from spinal cord problems and nerve damage. But, thanks to a regular rotation of musicians who perform concerts at his bedside, he’s still able to enjoy one of his favorite things — live music." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
"Two popular Maine musicians have also brought their music into Stanley's home, playing concerts at the house now known as “Stanley Station." The Rustic Overtones have packed a seven-piece band into Stanley’s living room for over a year, ever since lead singer Dave Gutter met Stanley at a concert. “His friends and family pulled this mobile hospital bed right up to the front of the... more... - Steve C
"Gutter says their bedside concerts are as much for Stanley as they are for the band, which gets re-energized by playing for their hardcore fan. “It’s our 20-year anniversary, and to put some wind in our sails and keep our heads up and keep us believing in the power of music is a beautiful thing,” he said." - Steve C

Yesterday I bought myself the book Minecraft For Dummies. Wade has been reading it nonstop. First book he has really *wanted* to read for pleasure. At school they have times they have to read silently, but at home he was never that into it until now.
So tired of people complaining about Colorado weather. Yes, it was in the 70's yesterday and it is snowing today. Get over it. You bitch when it's cold in winter, then you bitch it's too hot in summer. Just shut up already!

BBC News - Czech Republic: Wolves return after a century absence
Show all
"A hidden camera has captured an image of a wolf crossing a wooded clearing in the Czech Republic, a hundred years after the predator disappeared from the area, it's been reported. There have been some signs near the town of Doksy suggesting a wolf may be in the region, Radio Prague reports. But wolves haven't roamed free in Bohemia since the late 19th Century. Right now, there is probably just one wolf or maybe a pair, says environmental expert Miroslav Kutal. The animal is likely to have strayed into Bohemia from the border regions of Germany and Poland, where the wolf population has been thriving." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"But Kutal tells Radio Impuls the conditions in Bohemia - especially in former military zones and in the mountainous border regions - seem to be good for breeding. This is something to be encouraged, he adds, since wolves can regulate the deer population and draw tourists to the area. But the arrival of poachers could become a concern." - Jessie

Nation Stunned to Learn Congress Accomplished Something Fifty Years Ago : The New Yorker
"WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Millions of Americans were in a state of shock this past week after learning that Congress had accomplished something fifty years ago. Although the incident was widely reported throughout the week, the revelation that Congress had achieved something positive and substantial for the country a half century ago left many incredulous and baffled. Adding to their disbelief were reports that the accomplishment came as the result of collaboration between a Democrat in the White House and Republicans in Congress. Making the scenario even more far-fetched, politicians of both parties came to an agreement without the interference of corporate paymasters operating them like puppets." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Tracy Klugian, thirty-four, was one of many Americans who found “the whole thing hard to swallow.” “I searched for it on Google, and it’s true: Congress did actually get something done for the good of the country and all,” he said. “Still, when I first heard about it, it sounded like a hoax.”" - Jessie
feeling better today for the first time in weeks still have a bit of pain but no where near where it was. Nice to have a little relief :)

Cosplay mania rises as Taiwan joins summit - Taipei Times -
"Taiwan has formally joined the World Cosplay Summit (WCS) this year, despite having hosted the event twice, with Taiwanese winners having the chance to vie for a global award in Tokyo in August. Cosplay is a combined term for “costume play,” and has become a global craze in which people dress up as a character out of a comic book, manga, video game or anime, and are known as “cosers.” Taiwan Cosplay Promotion Association director-general Chen Hung-ming (陳宏名) said the Japanese organizers waived the third year of review for Taiwan — after the nation’s two years as an observer member — fast-tracking its entry to the 20-strong club, Chen said. To qualify, Chen said, Taiwan had held national contests, with the results assessed by experts as being at an international level, with performance criteria based on the resemblance of cosers to their original comic character in terms of overall looks and performance content." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"When asked about Taiwan becoming an official member of the WCS, Tsukasa, who has been a judging panel member in international cosplay competitions, said she was very happy. “It is rare for us to be able to share our experiences with foreigners who enjoy our hobbies. Such an event creates the feeling that we have no distance between us, no matter the size of the world, or what language we speak,” she said." - Jessie
I hope this turns out well...

Look, you French-speaking Swiss ladies: I went out of my way to speak French with you, so don't scoff at my Québécois accent. C'est pas gentil, les filles.
This is why I didn't continue with my HS French. I heard too many horror stories about how you can never speak it well enough to suit them. - Spidra Webster
But how would they be treated by French-speaking French ladies? - Corinne L
I'm guessing they'd get shade for their Swiss accents. - Spidra Webster
Spidra, I have yet to go to France as an adult because I am such a perfectionist and hate the thought of trying to speak in French only to be laughed at. My BFF from grade school on married a man from Brittany and her 3 daughters, all raised and educated in France, are starting to tell her that her accent is all wrong (our high school French teacher was from Montreal). - Corinne L
My middle school French teacher was from Bordeaux and taught proper, polite French (who later on went to work as an interpreter for Air France for awhile, before coming back to teaching). My high school French teacher was an Italian immigrant that learned his French on the streets of Paris, and sounded a lot like Dracula, while he chopped off the ends of words and used a lot of slang... more... - April Russo
I think my experience must be anomalous, as I have been to France a couple of times, and have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know a number of French people here, and while they all say I have a clear accent (I'd never pass for a native speaker, know, duh...) not one has ever given me a hard time about it. My impression was always that they were pleasantly surprised... more... - Bren
Attention! I speak French properly, and well. My accent, however, is Québécois. Their attitude, and some of what I'm hearing on this thread (frankly) is classist. - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
Brent, when I said "well enough for them", I meant that I'd heard unless one's accent was perfectly France French, preferably Parisian, it wasn't good enough for them. In no way did I mean that your French wasn't proper French. - Spidra Webster
Brent - I'm intimidated to speak French around anyone who's fluent, regardless of their accent. Unless it was my favorite French phrase, "J'en ai marre!" I figure when you yell that one, accent is no longer an issue. - Corinne L
I met some French speaking Canadians on one of my travels that had the same experience in France (they were told their French sounded archaic). They were treated no better than their English speaking travel companions. - Eivind

Okay, y'all, let's flood FF with all the things we love about Tamara. Time to put massive amounts of positive energy out there for her and the baby.
I love that today I found the photo booth photos she insisted we take after seeing the Muppet movie together (the one with Jason Segal). - Corinne L
I love that she is generous, silly, funny, and always knows the right things to say when I am going through it. - Corinne L
I love that, now matter how frantic her life is, she always has time to check in on her friends to make sure we are all okay. - vicster: full-bodied
I love how she believes in good. Even when life is shit, Tam always believes in good. I aspire to emulate that. - vicster: full-bodied
I love how Tam always cares about how her friends are doing/feeling, even when she's going thru it herself. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I love how she's always responding to me with DMs that are super helpful like kids activities and Meetup groups. She takes a post where I say I need to do something and she kickstarts me into action with concrete ideas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I love how generous, kind and thoughtful she is. And how she always knows when to DM me with a good word or smile. - Mary Carmen
I love, love her smile. So pretty in pictures, but in person she really does light up a room! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Her generosity of spirit is huge, and so real, I can't help but love her. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Aww. Thanks, you guys. I love you all. I really do try to be a great person and friend because I genuinely care. I know I could always do more and be better but I'm grateful that you guys feel loved or special in whatever big or small way as a result of our friendship. I want the best for all of you. Xoxo - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Big smooches to you, Tam. - Corinne L
That in amongst all this she finds time to check in with Helen and be a cheerleader :) - Pete
You got there before me... in amongst all this crap, there was still a message for me this morning wishing me a great day ;-) And I've not yet told y'all about my amazing birthday present. Or how she listens to me moaning about work every week! Or the great advice she gives. Or how she's brought Josh Jackson into my life *swoon*... - Heleninstitches
I love how thoughtful and generous and kind she is :oD - Melly
I simply adore Tamara's sunshine! <3 - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
She's always very eager and generous with running advice and I appreciate that. She's a wonderful lady. - Jed from iPhone
I love how she never gives up, no matter how much crap life throws her way. How she responds to life's adversities, not pretending everything is always okay, admitting when she is having a shit day, but always ready for a brighter day tomorrow. She has a lovely soul, she's a great hugger, and she has a radiant smile. - Jenny H.
Thank you. I barely slept last night and my heart still hurts, yes, I'm angry too, but it was such a bright spot to wake up to these messages. I appreciate the love. *group hugs* - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Tam is always looking out for others' well-being. She is very loving, caring and very energetic. She is persistent, doesn't know what quitting means. She is intelligent. And all of that will come on handy once Miss M is here soon. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Tam is very generous and thoughtful, and she sends out lovely cards. - John (bird whisperer)
I lub TamTam, bcoz shes' always positive and always is very thought of others ! - Peter Dawson
Where do I begin? She's funny. She's cute. She's got a great laugh. She's very sweet. She's a great motivator. She's sends out great cards. She likes John Hughes movies. She makes Adam happy. She's Tam Tam. :) - Steven Perez
She is by all accounts an amazing person. I've never met her in real life, yet I have lovely notes from her on my cork board and fridge b/c that's the thoughtful and genuinely kind person she is. I feel beyond lucky to share a name with her. If she needed me to go to California and organize a protection detail for her and the baby, I would do it. For real. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
All of the above and everything else! - Katy S from iPhone
She sent me cookies, internationally, to encourage an act of creativity I was trying. Delicious. Tam invests in people. So lovely, she. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Beauty and heart. Glenda the Good Witch ;) - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
I like the way Micah explained it. Tam invests in people is so true. A bright light and loving soul. - Janet from FFHound!
How can I find the words to express how much it means to me that you guys care and "get" me? I appreciate every kind word and sentiment. Much love to all of you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. - Tamara J. B.
Brent, it's on you to give her a big hug from all of us tomorrow. And say hello to baby M while you're at it. :-D - Corinne L

Thanks, Tam! Home now. We had a great time: Lake, hiking, sledding, inner tubing, a visit to the U.C. Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center museum, more sledding. And lots of s'mores and hot tubbing at the cabins. Flickr set is now complete: - Stephen Mack
