#258690 news and currunt affairs

Could we not legislate a little integrity into the public media? Not thinking too clearly today so I'm sure it's a topic of debate going back ions, but still. damn. :love3:

 

I can still remember my high school journalism class (but not what I did yesterday!).  Multiple, verifiable sources.  Check your facts.  Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How - cover them all.  You would think sometimes, that we're back in the 1890's reading ads for snake oil.

 

I'm not joking when I say there should be legislation, with severe penalties for those who break the law, demanding that when a media operation says something is true, it needs to be true.  When they purport something as opinion, they need to expressly state that it's their opinion - several times, before, during, and after the story.  Same for ads.

This is why people believe there is fake news. Because there IS. Nothing new, nothing that should be surprising. Ever since newspapers relied on advertising revenues to operate they knew that sensationalism sells. Who cares about the facts if the headline will grab you and pull you in. And then countries enact laws that don't hold them responsible when they do it. Freedom of the Press!!! It's a bunch of bull shit. The press should be free to print whatever they want, as long as they can prove it's true if they say it was. Disgusting.

#258673 And how was your day???

It was a dark and stormy night.  The house was silent, but for the slow rasping sound of the aging fan as a blade caressed its enclosure.  Having just showered, I stood for a moment at the fan, towel disengaged, to dry the remaining dampness from my legs.  To my amusement, a thought passed my awareness ......

 

 

Ok Mr. Scott, your turn!  Make it good!!!

Funny story....I took a shower today and walked into my bedroom with just a towel wrapped around my waist. The box fan, which I have sitting on the floor was on. I stood in front of it, and opened the towel a bit to air dry my legs. I said "oooh that's a litlle chilly on my willy" 

 

:lol:

 

Finish the story!  What happened next?  Hmmm?

Darn it!  No prancing boys in deer costumes!  Lol!  Oh well.  There were cute boys though.  Kind of prancing.

 

The live casted the show:

The production is primarily the baritone José Adán Pérez (https://www.laopera....ose-Adan-Perez/), and regional dances from the states of Jalisco, Veracruz, Chiapas, and Sinaloa.  Looks like they cut the video off early as there was a number for Sinaloa with Carnival outfits + a couple of curtain calls.

 

I'll be recovering from fog machine smoke tomorrow, but had a good time!

Such an amazing voice.  I was going to just watch the first few minutes, but then suddenly it was over!  Time just stopped for a moment :)  I'm glad she's got a handle on the money aspect.

#258643 And how was your day???

Believe me, it evens out with the days I sit on the couch and get caught up binge watching some old tv show!  This has been happening more than I care to admit!

 

I'm adapting to the heat/humidity, and at the same time the temperature has been dropping just a little.  There are tricks to deal with heat that they don't teach you in places like Seattle .... always walk on the shady side of the street; avoid being out between 11 am and 3 pm; give up and sweat.  I almost always do the first.  I find myself out around noon frequently.  The last is my normal state of mind!

 

I'm within a pound of my original goal weight though - but I've decided that getting to my upper end weight from 20 years ago might be a good idea.  That resets my goal another 10 lbs, so the two beer lunches are being restricted to once a week :)

^^bet that didn't add any weight to your already svelt figure  :getaway:

 

I'm pretty sure I walked it off.  I had a good 30 minutes down the beach, and another 30 back.  Then went grocery shopping.  Am at 11,774 steps for the day according to my fitbit :)   Relaxation tires me out!  Lol.
