On stage at Goldman Sachs event, Uber CEO compared his company’s woes to Ferguson - Pando Daily
"... It takes real effort to make an entire roomful of bankers gasp at your insensitivity. It also shows that, despite his company being pilloried on every front page in America, the CEO of Uber really, really doesn’t give a shit what anyone thinks....". #malwareaddoxingohmy - WarLord

Google Glass Is Dead; Long Live Smart Glasses - MIT Tech Review
"Although Google says it’s still committed to Glass, several companies, including Twitter, have stopped working on apps for it. Babak Parviz, the creator of Glass, left Google in July for a job as a vice president at Amazon, where he’s looking into new areas of technology. Even some of the early adopters are getting weary of the device. 'I found that it was not very useful for very much, and it tended to disturb people around me that I have this thing,' says James Katz, the director of emerging media studies at Boston University’s College of Communication." - Victor Ganata

My sister: "yeah I was at the median and got shoved by police up the hill up. I was legal observing, but the police kept pushing and people were falling." - Victor Ganata
"Information as to how this young woman was injured by fellow legal observer: 'She was with the protestors on the freeway. As the police were moving people up the hill and back onto the street, she was moving back, with her back to the police line. She says that she grabbed onto her brother because she was worried he would get hurt and then felt a baton on her head.'" - Victor Ganata
"'Her brother and friend were with her. They were at the bottom of the hill on the Grand Ave onramp. She didn't see the cop. She said she then asked if she could get out of the police barricade to get medical attention but was not allowed to leave.'" - Victor Ganata

Practically speaking, you can't really demand respect for rule of law when you're not willing to abide by rule of law and you're not willing to countenance actual justice.
This is why developing ex-colonies are as corrupt as they are. - Victor Ganata
"But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society." — Martin Luther King, Jr.
"These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity." - Victor Ganata
These words could be said today and still be just as true on a lot of levels. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Changing Beverage Consumption Patterns Have Resulted in Fewer Liquid Calories in the Diets of US Children: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2001-2010 - Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics - 2014 Sep 3
"Changing beverage consumption patterns reflect positive trends in the form of reduced intake of SSBs, whole milk, and total calories from beverages. Although the consumption of sport drinks, energy drinks, and low-calorie beverages have increased, their contribution to total beverage intake remains small." - Victor Ganata

"I am rationally ignorant about statements that are egosyntonic with my utopia." from Kevin M.D.
"The problem isn’t that we’re rationally ignorant. The problem is how selective and predictable our rational ignorance has become. The problem is the ease with which we can access echo chambers which endorse this selectivity. The problem is the moral certitude with which we deny our rational ignorance." - Victor Ganata
We live in capitalism, its power seems inescapable – but then, so did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art. Very often in our art, the art of words. -
