Not poke fun at Parliament? That's a laugh | John O'Farrell | Opinion | The Guardian
"No extracts from parliamentary proceedings may be used in comedy shows or other light entertainment such as political satire," says the bizarre and anachronistic clause that dates back to the protracted negotiations when broadcasters were trying to get the cameras admitted.

Apparently, the politicians were worried that they might be made to look ridiculous. That's the hundreds of MPs who jeer and cajole and feign laughter at weak jokes and jump up and down trying to get the Speaker's attention – they were worried that a comedy show might take this footage and somehow might make them look undignified.

How Might Ethical Data Principles Borrow from Social Work?
I’m in the process of co-writing a book called Data Feminism, together with Lauren Klein. Recently, I’ve had the privilege of interviewing people who are working at the cutting edge of ethical data and inclusive artificial intelligence. Two people in particular have brought our attention to the field of social work in relation to data science. In an article about data violence, Anna Lauren Hoffmann wrote that “engineers and data scientists need to listen to and engage with affected communities.” Though engineers and data scientists are typically not equipped for engaging with communities, social workers have deep expertise in that regard. She and I recently discussed the striking lack of overlap between social work and information science.

Our pledge

We, the undersigned, are employees of tech organizations and companies based in the United States. We are engineers, designers, business executives, and others whose jobs include managing or processing data about people. We are choosing to stand in solidarity with Muslim Americans, immigrants, and all people whose lives and livelihoods are threatened by the incoming administration’s proposed data collection policies. We refuse to build a database of people based on their Constitutionally-protected religious beliefs. We refuse to facilitate mass deportations of people the government believes to be undesirable.

We have educated ourselves on the history of threats like these, and on the roles that technology and technologists played in carrying them out. We see how IBM collaborated to digitize and streamline the Holocaust, contributing to the deaths of six million Jews and millions of others. We recall the internment of Japanese Americans during the Second World War. We recognize that mass deportations precipitated the very atrocity the word genocide was created to describe: the murder of 1.5 million Armenians in Turkey. We acknowledge that genocides are not merely a relic of the distant past—among others, Tutsi Rwandans and Bosnian Muslims have been victims in our lifetimes.

Today we stand together to say: not on our watch, and never again.

Gaming the Stage: Playable Media and the Rise of English Commercial Theater
Open access version made available with the support of University of California, Davis, as part of the TOME initiative.

Rich connections between gaming and theater stretch back to the 16th and 17th centuries, when England's first commercial theaters appeared right next door to gaming houses and blood-sport arenas. In the first book-length exploration of gaming in the early modern period, Gina Bloom shows that theaters succeeded in London's new entertainment marketplace largely because watching a play and playing a game were similar experiences. Audiences did not just see a play; they were encouraged to play the play, and knowledge of gaming helped them become better theatergoers. Examining dramas written for these theaters alongside evidence of analog games popular then and today, Bloom argues for games as theatrical media and theater as an interactive gaming technology.

Gaming the Stage also introduces a new archive for game studies: scenes of onstage gaming, which appear at climactic moments in dramatic literature. Bloom reveals plays to be systems of information for theater spectators: games of withholding, divulging, speculating, and wagering on knowledge. Her book breaks new ground through examinations of plays such as The Tempest, Arden of Faversham, A Woman Killed with Kindness, and A Game at Chess; the histories of familiar games such as cards, backgammon, and chess; less familiar ones, like Game of the Goose; and even a mixed-reality theater videogame.

FC St. Pauli - Wikipedia
The club prides itself on having the largest number of female fans in all of German football.[24] In 2002, advertisements for the men's magazine Maxim were removed from the Millerntor-Stadion in response to fans' protests over the adverts' sexist depictions of women.[25] In 2011, the club banned lap dancers from performing during match before guests at a corporate suite, following fans' complaints. The suite belonged to local lap dance club Susies Show Bar.[26]

St. Pauli is also a worldwide symbol for punk and related subcultures.[27] The skull and crossbones logo and the team's brown and white football jerseys have often been worn by international artists such as the bands Asian Dub Foundation, Gaslight Anthem and Panteon Rococo. The KMFDM frontman and Hamburg native Sascha Konietzko is a recognisable St. Pauli fan, at one point placing a huge picture of a fist smashing a swastika on his band's main page, with the caption "St. Pauli Fans gegen Rechts!" ("St. Pauli fans against the Right") underneath it. Another notable supporter and sponsor is Andrew Eldritch, lead singer of band The Sisters of Mercy.

En Dash and Em Dash | Get It Write Online
The en dash is slightly longer than the hyphen but not as long as the em dash. (It is, in fact, the width of a typesetter’s letter “N,” whereas the em dash is the width of the letter “M”—thus their names.) The en dash means, quite simply, “through.” We use it most commonly to indicate inclusive dates and numbers: July 9–August 17; pp. 37–59.

The holiday season always seems to be more hectic than it should be. In fact, Japan’s ancient word for December is shiwasu (師走), which is literally “teacher run” because this month is so busy that even the priests have to pray while running.

"to improve energy security, we need to make the power grid less reliable"
Keeping Some of the Lights On: Redefining Energy Security is a fascinating reexamination of what we mean by “energy security.”

Because demand and supply influence each other, we come to a counter-intuitive conclusion: to improve energy security, we need to make the power grid less reliable. This would encourage resilience and substitution, and thus make industrial societies less vulnerable to supply interruptions.

In other words, if it’s an issue that renewable sources of energy are intermittent, why not change the nature of the problem we’re seeking to solve.

Artist wonders why so much is spent on Bright Lights, when the arts need more | CBC News
Martin Ouellette is a theatre director and producer in the city, and argues that the lights display investment for one year is worth seven years of arts funding in this city (in terms of grants provided).

"I just thought it spoke to a big imbalance in our priorities," he said.

The city earmarked $3 million dollars for the festival over the last two years ($1.5 million per year). That's approximately $7 per Windsor resident.

According to a MBNCanada Performance Measurement Report, when looking at funding dollars provided for Arts, Heritage and Festivals grants, Windsor gave $1.05 per resident in 2017. This number does not include funding for cultural venues like art galleries and museums.

That's less than what the 10 other cities included in the survey spent in the same category. That included statistics from Toronto, Hamilton, London and Sudbury.

Adbusters wins right to sue broadcasters over TV ads - The Globe and Mail
Adbusters launched a legal challenge after the CBC pulled its anti-car television ad, Autosaurus, from its automotive show Driver's Seat . The ad ran once in February, 1993, but was withdrawn after complaints from other sponsors - mostly car companies.

In November, 1995, the B.C. Supreme Court rejected Adbusters' argument that this infringed on the foundation's right to freedom of expression, ruling that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms does not apply to the Crown corporation.

In 2004, Mr. Lasn hired prominent civil rights lawyer Clayton Ruby and launched another suit in Ontario, arguing that CBC, CanWest Global, Bell Globemedia and CHUM had each refused to run ads created by Adbusters. Telephone transcripts included in the legal filing showed television executives anticipated a negative response from major advertisers over the ads. During the same period, several of the same ads were screened without issue on CNN.
