In 2004, Uhuru Movement's former leader Omali Yeshitela was embroiled in an incident in which he tore down a Halloween display in St. Petersburg that depicted a black man hanging from a noose although it later turned out to be a, "a synthetic spider web that spanned half the width of the gray house and an arrangement of plastic skulls and bones."[9] Subsequent opinions[10] and letters[11] to the St. Petersburg Times regarding the incident were critical of the Uhuru Movement and Yeshitela's conduct

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denis

 

 

According to Christian tradition, Saint Denis (also called Dionysius, Dennis, or Denys) is a Christian martyr and saint. In the third century, he was Bishop of Paris. He was martyred in connection with the Decian persecution of Christians, shortly after 250 AD. Denis is said to have picked his head up after being decapitated, walked ten kilometres (six miles), and preached a sermon the entire way, making him one of many cephalophores in hagiology. He is venerated in the Roman Catholic Church as patron of Paris, France, and as one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. The medieval and modern French name "Denis" derives from the ancient name Dionysius.

Death ray plot

In 2013, two men from upstate New York were arrested after building a radioactive "death ray" device and plotting to use it against Muslims, and other perceived enemies of the United States and Israel,[44] including Obama. The men, Glenn Scott Crawford and Eric J. Feight, were arrested by the FBI after a 15-month operation involving FBI agents posing as co-conspirators. A court affidavit described the device as "a mobile, remotely operated, radiation emitting device capable of killing human targets silently and from a distance with lethal doses of radiation."[45]

Crawford, affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan organization, had allegedly contacted an Albany synagogue and a Jewish organization, and asked for their assistance with technology that could be used against Israel's enemies. Crawford also plotted to kill President Obama with the device. The undercover agents rendered the weapon inoperable to eliminate potential danger to the public. Crawford and Feight were charged with "conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists" and could potentially be sentenced to 15 years of imprisonment.[46][47][48][49][50]

Following the test at the CDC campus in DeKalb County, two of the monkeys who had survived Reston virus infection were infected with a very large dose of the Ebola virus in an effort to produce an Ebola vaccine. One of the two monkeys remained resistant; the second died.[8]

The physical building in which the outbreak occurred was demolished on 30 May 1995 and a new building constructed in its place. This facility, which is part of the Isaac Newton Square office park, at 1946 Isaac Newton Sq W, became a PALS Early Learning and Child Care Center, then became a Mulberry Child Care and preschool center as of 2007, and as of 2009 it became a KinderCare.[20]

Synopsis

Soon after its debut, the series was panned by critics citing Johnson's apparent nervousness as a host, his overly complimentary tone with his celebrity guests, and lack of chemistry with his sidekick, comedian Craig Shoemaker. The series was quickly retooled with Shoemaker being relegated to the supporting cast which included comedian Steve White and announcer Jimmy Hodson. Comedian and actor Tommy Davidson was brought in as Johnson's new sidekick and Johnson interacted more with the show band leader Sheila E. The format of the show was also changed to include more interview time with celebrity guests.[1][2]

Howard Stern appearance

One vocal critic of The Magic Hour was Howard Stern. Stern would regularly mock Johnson's diction and hosting abilities on his popular morning show.[1] In an attempt to confront Stern (and to boost ratings), Stern was booked to appear on the show as a guest (along with Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal[3]). Stern appeared on the July 2 broadcast with the band, the Losers, and played the song "Wipe Out".[4] While being interviewed by Johnson, Stern asked Johnson about his lifestyle prior to contracting HIV and if he practiced safe sex with his wife. Stern also asked about "the white guy comedian", referring to Johnson's previous sidekick, Craig Shoemaker, who had been fired shortly before Stern's appearance for publicly calling the show "an absolute nightmare".[5][6]

Cancellation

The highly publicized episode featuring Stern increased viewership for a time,[5] but ratings soon dropped off. The series was canceled after eight weeks.[7]

Johnson later blamed the demise of his talk show on a lack of support from black celebrities who refused or could not appear on his show. Johnson claimed, "Their managers and agents keep them off of the black shows."[8]

Legitimately interesting, or atleast funny.

Developer misconduct

Instances of developer misconduct in Eve Online have been substantiated, leading to debates and controversy within the game community. On February 9, 2007, a player known as Kugutsumen hacked an enemy corporation's private forum to find out and reveal that Eve Online developer t20 had provided his corporation, Reikoku, with six valuable blueprints, giving them an advantage over competing corporations.[128] Some within the Eve Online community asked for t20's dismissal. While an apology letter was left for the community in the form of a dev blog, he remained an Eve Online developer until late 2008. Kugutsumen was permanently banned from the Eve Online universe for violating the game's terms of service and end-user license agreement by revealing t20's real name.[129]

In response to public concerns, CCP decided to set up an internal affairs division whose responsibility is to monitor the activities of both privileged and player accounts operated by CCP staff in-game.[130]

Hi Mittens

 

Mitanni (/mɪˈtæni/Hittite cuneiform KUR URUMi-ta-an-ni; also Mittani Mi-it-ta-ni) or Hanigalbat (Assyrian Hanigalbat, Khanigalbat cuneiform Ḫa-ni-gal-bat) or Naharin in ancient Egyptian texts was a Hurrian-speaking state in northernSyria and southeast Anatolia from ca. 1500 BC–1300 BC. Founded by an Indo-Aryan ruling class governing a predominantly Hurrian population, Mitanni came to be a regional power after the Hittite destruction of Amorite[1]Babylon and a series of ineffectual Assyrian kings created a power vacuum in Mesopotamia. At the beginning of its history, Mitanni's major rival was Egypt under the Thutmosids. However, with the ascent of the Hittite empire, Mitanni and Egypt made an alliance to protect their mutual interests from the threat of Hittite domination. At the height of its power, during the 14th century BC, Mitanni had outposts centered on its capital, Washukanni, whose location has been determined by archaeologists to be on the headwaters of the Khabur River. Eventually, Mitanni succumbed to Hittite and later Assyrian attacks, and was reduced to the status of a province of the Middle Assyrian Empire.

Remember, at least some form of competitive womens' college athletics dates back to the first half of the twentieth century, people talked differently back then. Besides, it just sounds better to me.

Social web

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The social web is a set of social relations that link people through the World Wide Web.[1] The Social web encompasses how websites and software are designed and developed in order to support and foster social interaction.[2]:5 These online social interactions form the basis of much online activity including online shopping,[3]education, gaming and social networking websites. The social aspect of Web 2.0 communication has been to facilitate interaction between people with similar tastes.[4] These tastes vary depending on who the target audience is, and what they are looking for. For individuals working in the public relation department, the job is consistently changing and the impact is coming from the social web.[5] The influence, held by the social network is large and ever changing.

As people's activities on the Web and communication increase, information about their social relationships become more available.[6] Social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook, as well as the future Dataweb enable people and organizations to contact each other with persistent human-friendly names.[citation needed] Today hundreds of millions of Internet users are using thousands of social websites to stay connected with their friends, discover new ‘‘friends,’’and to share user-created content, such as photos, videos, social bookmarks, and blogs, even through mobile platform support for cell phones.[7] By the end quarter in 2008, Facebook reported 67 million members, MySpace occupied 100 million users, and YouTube had more than 100 million videos and 2.9 million user channels,[8] and these numbers are consistently growing. The social Web is quickly reinventing itself, moving beyond simple web applications that connect individuals to become an entirely new way of life.[2]:18

https://en.wikipedia...and_vagina_envy

 

Womb envy denotes the envy men may feel towards a woman's primary role in nurturing and sustaining life. In coining the term, the Neo-Freudian psychiatrist Karen Horney (1885–1952) proposed that men experience womb envy more powerfully than women experience penis envy,[neutrality is disputed] because "men need to disparage women more than women need to disparage men."[3] As a psychoanalyst, Horney considered womb envy a cultural, psychosocial tendency, like the concept of penis envy, rather than an innate male psychological trait.[1]

Some of those it clearly means people are getting into fights over edits.  I mean some of them are also big current figures.  Obama's page will get updated as shit happens and he's POTUS so there's plenty happening.  There's also lots of political bullshit that I'm sure spills over into edits.

 

I can only assume a bunch of the Jesus shit comes from the fedora folk trying to insert tidbits about Richard Carrier.

Wrestling fans are nuts, those WWE pages have been making the list for a decade now. If anything there used to be more of them up there.

I can't decided if a wiki page being regularly edited is good or bad.  On one hand it could mean it's more accurate.  On the other hand it could be it get's fucked up more by opinionated people/trolls.

Its bad, it means that regular edit wars are in progress. That fucking Obama page is a great example. Anyone trying to go against the grain there will be reverted within a minute, and given Obama's prominence there's a lot of people who want things to be added or changed.

 

Of those things the one that stands out to me the most is the Ben 10 aliens. I sort of figured that autists didn't give a damn about Ben 10.
