"When World War II erupted, colonialism was at its apogee. The course of the war, however, its symbolic undertones, would sow the seeds of the system’s defeat and demise. How and why did this happen?"
"First, a short detour into the foul realm of racial thinking. The central subject, the essence, the core of relations between Europeans and Africans during the colonial era, was the difference of race, of skin color. Everything—each exchange, connection, conflict—was translated into the language of black and white. And, of course, white was better, higher, more powerful than black. Whites were sir, master, sahib, bwana kubwa, unchallenged lords and rulers, sent by God to hold sway over the blacks. Into the African was inculcated the notion that the white man was untouchable, unconquerable, that whites constituted a homogeneous, cohesive force. Such was the ideology that ably supported the system of colonial domination, by teaching that to question or contest the system was absolutely pointless. Then, suddenly, Africans recruited into the British and French armies in Europe observed that the white men were fighting one another, shooting one another, destroying one another’s cities.

Aw, crap. I gotta go to work tomorrow.
"So, here some of my favourite ruined churches around Britain. If Lindisfarne is perhaps the most evocative, Dryburgh Abbbey has possibly the most beautiful setting, on a bend of the River Tweed, near Kelso in the Scottish Borderts. But my personal favourite is St Dunstan in the East, in London. Nestled, almost unseen, in the shadow of the Gherkin and the Lloyd’s Building, it was originally built in the eleventh century, rebuilt by Christopher Wren after it had been damaged in the Great Fire of London, and then almost destroyed during the Blitz. The church remains today in ruins but within and around it has been created a wild and wonderful garden. The remaining windows are draped with Virginia creeper and ornamental vine. Inside the roofless walls thrive such exotic plants as Moroccan broom, New Zealand flax and Japanese snowball. The effect is quite enchanting." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
Seems like Pompei. - Margot
St Dunstan-in-the-West on Fleet Street, though also bombed in WW II, is still active and worth a visit. It's about as ecumenical as a Christian church can get, being home to both an Anglican and Romanian Orthodox congregations: "St Dunstan-in-the-West is home to the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association, and is a centre of prayer for Christian Unity. It is therefore appropriate that... more... - David Lounsbury
What a contrast! Now I dream of visiting both churches, if I ever get around to take a trip to London. - Maitani
The only activity today: Going to Best Buy to get cases for the tablets. After that, both @gohomekiki and I will vegetate all afternoon.

I don't say it enough (or perhaps I never have) but I admire the hell out of Jimminy. He gets it done, even though half the time I have no idea what he's doing. And in a world of people who constantly brag about "keeping it real" he just does it.

Today was a great day y'all. Played my first bike polo game and scored a goal even though I don't have control of the bike or the mallet yet. Then an awesome lady friend took me to dinner and offered me the spare room in her house by saying 'you're not going to need it, but if you do it's yours'. I continue to be humbled by the care and concern...
people have shown me. It is truly affirming. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

Widow: Husband's Hairy Chest Reason for Not Defibrillating on Flight -
Widow: Husband's Hairy Chest Reason for Not Defibrillating on Flight
"While on board a Southwest Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Albuquerque, Jack Jordan suffered a massive heart attack, which rallied passengers on the flight to give the man CPR. While others gathered to a help, a flight attendant allegedly said the heart defibrillator couldn't be used because the man's chest was too hairy." - Me from Bookmarklet
Inside every defibrillator case (according to every trainer I've had) includes a disposable razor for the express purpose of shaving hairy chests. - Betsy
And you only have to shave two very small areas, just big enough to attach the leads (or whatever they're called). - Betsy
short version: flight attendant (and by extension SW Airlines) is liable for wrongful death. - Big Joe Silence
You can also use the adhesive pads to rip off the hair, there should be more than one set of pads. - Janet from FFHound!

50 years ago tonight I went to Forest Hills Stadium,NY to see my very first concert.....THE BEATLES!!!.
Nice! My first was Elton John in 1973. (I'm not going to count Terry Jacks and The Poppy Family at the PNE.) - Ken Morley
i didn't start going to shows until 1984. David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. - Big Joe Silence

U.N. urges U.S. to stop police brutality after Missouri shooting -
"This demo is featuring use of Raspberry-Pi as a gateway in an alarm system. We connected a camera and accelerometer to the Pi and used Reactive Blocks to make a simple intruder detection application. Every time vibration is detected, the camera takes a picture and checks if there is a change in the image. If a change is detected, it sends an SMS and an email with an attached image of the intruder." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

How do you work with someone for 6 years and not know how to say their name correctly? Also, why is Yvonne (EE-von) so hard for some people to say? ::grumble::

There are a LOT of people where I work whose names I do not know. Some who have told me their names, I can't remember. It takes a while to sink in for me. Non-English sounding names are the ones I have the most difficulty with. - Ian May
Ian, that helps. I work in a small-ish library and most of us interact pretty regularly, but hey. - YvonneM
My sister-in-law is from New Jersey and her name is Yvonne. Everyone there pronounces her name "Ya-von." It might have to do with their accent. Yet when I ask her and say "ee-VON," she says I'm saying it correctly. LOL. - Trish R
My mom had a childhood friend called (phonetically) Wy-vo-na. The girl's mother had read the name in a book and that's how she thought it was pronounced. Spelled "Yvonne" of course. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I had a friend tell me, after 2 years, that I'd been mispronouncing her name. Talk about awkward. - YvonneM
