The American Revolution: #1/10 The Conflict Ignites The Inquiring Mind

From Amazon

This epic production tells the stories of the men and events that shaped the birth of our nation. From the masterful diplomacy of Ben Franklin to the inglorious fate of Benedict Arnold, THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION is the definitive look at the struggle to create a new form of government for a New World. Examine the great changes and subtle forces that gave rise to the first democratic nation in the modern world. Revisit the twenty-year struggle for American independence through dramatic re- enactments of great battles, period art and artifacts, rare archival material, and contemporary commentary by leading historians. And hear the words of the founding fathers and the men who fought for freedom read by leading actors such as Kelsey Grammer and Michael Learned.

This six-tape set provides a clear and complete narrative of the events surrounding the birth of America. Unfortunately, it is a bit dry, as the repetitive music is distracting and certain images are shown far too frequently. However, the varied materials used to tell this tale will please history buffs. The producers employed a blend of battle reenactments, location filming, paintings, engravings, and the narratives of actual letters and documents from the 1770s. Events are covered in detailthese are not just the highlights remembered from school. However, due to the density of the material, you have to be a fan of the genre. The narrators include such well-polished actors as Charles Durning, Michael Learned, Rick Schroder, and Cliff Robertson

The Boogeyman Is Coming for You "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The anti-terrorism unit suited up.

This was an international affair a deal between the USA and New Zealand, two members of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance.

Helicopters, tactical suits, high caliber firearmsthe whole shebang. They busted in the doors and successfully raided the multi-million-dollar compound.

What was this capturing the next in line after Bin Laden? Busting an international human trafficking ring?

Actually, elite New Zealand law enforcement was acting at the request of the United States to arrest a guy named Kim Dotcom.

Kim Dotcom is a large, jovial man of German-Swedish origins. He founded Megaupload, an online platform that allowed us to basically watch movies online for free.

Unfortunately for Kim, a lot of that content included American movies, with American copyrights.

US artists didnt get their money, which meant the US government didnt get its tax dollars.

But Kim Dotcom was a German citizen hanging out in New Zealand. So tough luck for the USA, right?

Wrong. US jurisdiction extends globally and the government is getting its pound of flesh.

Violate US copyright laws, and get your door kicked in by a SWAT team, even half a world away.

Then there was the Australian, living in London who shared leaked, classified and sensitive documents with the public.

Im talking about the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange.

He walked into the Ecuadorian embassy in London six years ago, asking for asylum.

There was a Swedish warrant out for his arrest, alleging rape charges. He faced extradition to Sweden, and feared he would then be turned over to US authorities who wanted Assange taken down for exposing the extent of the spying the US government was carrying out on its own citizens.

For years it was suspected that there was a sealed US indictment against Assange. Last month, the proof emerged when the US accidentally revealed the filing, but not the specific charges.

So, weve got an Aussie journalist who might get arrested in the UK (which has an extradition agreement with the US) for a crime allegedly committed in Sweden all because the US government has a hard on for this guy.

But this journalist made the mistake of providing the world with the valuable insight that the authoritarian US government was surveilling its own citizens.

And, again, the US wants its pound of flesh.

Just recently, the US has once again flexed its glob...

Andrew Marrs History of the World: #4 Into The Light The Inquiring Mind

About the Series

Andrew Marrs History of the World is a 2012 BBC documentary television series presented by Andrew Marr that covers 70,000 years of world history from the beginning of human civilisation, as African nomadic peoples spread out around the world and settled down to become the first farmers, up to the twentieth century.

The series is noted for its elaborate, Hollywood-like recreations of many of the people and events on which Marr frames his story. Great care was taken in accurate costumes and the use of the original language of those portrayed. To this are added elaborate digital effects, such as a recreation of the Palace of Knossos or the diversionary channels dug to control flooding of the Yellow River.

This Episode

The Middle Ages, when Vikings explored and pillaged.

Segments: a Viking raid on Kiev and the foundation of the Kievan Rus 882 AD; al-Khwarizmi and the Islamic Golden Age 827 AD; Genghis Khan and the rise of the Mongol Empire 1206; the journey of Marco Polo 1271; the pilgrimage of Mansa Musa 1324; the Ottoman siege of Constantinople 1453; Leonardo da Vinci painting The Last Supper 1494.

New Allegations of Corruption in Trumpworld The Inquiring Mind

Yesterday Adam posted on how the Wall Street Journal reported on Trumps Inaugeration Committee being under investigation

Today there is an additional report alleging that some very murky transactions took place, though as yet unproven

See this report as well from Propublica.

The report makes some significant allegations, e.g.:-

When it came out this year that President Donald Trumps inaugural committee raised and spent unprecedented amounts, people wondered where all that money went.

It turns out one beneficiary was Trump himself.

The inauguration paid the Trump Organization for rooms, meals and event space at the companys Washington hotel, according to interviews as well as internal emails and receipts reviewed by WNYC and ProPublica.

During the planning, Ivanka Trump, the president-elects eldest daughter and a senior executive with the Trump Organization, was involved in negotiating the price the hotel charged the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee for venue rentals. A top inaugural planner emailed Ivanka and others at the company to express my concern that the hotel was overcharging for its event spaces, worrying of what would happen when this is audited. See the article for full and copious detail

Slate carries some commentary here, including this:

The eleven-billionth Trump corruption story of the last 48 hours involves the Trump inaugural committee (which was a freestanding non-profit entity that raised money from corporations and rich folks) getting fleeced by the Trump Organizations D.C. hotel See link for more

DW: Bitcoin Founders Valley the dream of new money The Inquiring Mind

The 2008 financial crisis spread distrust in banks and sped up the acceptance of new kinds of money. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin now promise to provide transparent, democratic alternatives. Startups in the Philippines are disrupting old structures. More than 50 million Filipinos are unbanked. FinTech startups are now giving them access to money. With little access to formal banking services, millions in the Philippines cant save money, take out loans or perform other simple financial transactions. Now FinTech startups are raising levels of financial inclusion. Founders here believe the country is ripe for change, and that cryptocurrencies will provide the momentum. Blockchain ambassador Lina Seiche, the founder of Blockchats, is working for change through bitcoin and decentralized networks. SCI founder Miguel Cuneta is helping that change along by offering services like bill payment, e-commerce, cashless transactions, and of course, cryptocurrency wallets. Hes enabling people in the unbanked market like waste-pickers by helping them participate in the world of digital commerce. Founder David Kath is aiding them as well by eliminating middlemen in the plastic industry with technology that allows waste-pickers to triple incomes. Turned into digital tokens in an e-wallet, plastic has become their money.

Classic Silent Film: Nurse Marjorie (1920) The Inquiring Mind

Wikipedia

Nurse Marjorie is a 1920 American silent film drama produced and distributed by Realart Pictures, directed by William Desmond Taylor, and starring Mary Miles Minter. It is based on a 1906 play, Nurse Marjorie, by Israel Zangwill. The scenario is by Julia Crawford Ivers whose son James Van Trees was the cinematographer. On the Broadway stage Minters part was played by Eleanor Robson. This is one of Minters later films that survive at the Library of Congress.

As described in a film magazine, Lady Marjorie Killonan (Minter), who has devoted her time to nursing the poor, startles her parents by announcing that she is to enter a hospital that caters to the well-to-do. At the hospital she insists that her identity be shielded. Her first two patients are John Danbury, M.P. (Fillmore), and Dick Allen (Lee), a little boy with a broken leg. John has had surgery on his eyes and believes his nurse to be middle aged and very homely. There is nothing wrong with Dicks eyes, however, and he falls in love with Marjorie immediately. When John recovers his sight he falls in love with his nurse and becomes very jealous of her other patient, whom he pictures as a man of his own age. Marjorie has fallen in love with John, but torments him for some time. Marjorie poses as the daughter of poor fisherfolk, and Johns parents attempt to buy her off. John insists on marrying her, but when he learns of her deception, he leaves in a rage. Later he is wounded and Marjorie becomes his nurse again. This time her parents interpose objections, but these are overcome and the two are united.

Hoover Institution: Uncommon Knowledge Why Does Joseph Stalin Matter? The Inquiring Mind

Recorded on January 25, 2018. Joseph Stalin, Soviet dictator, creator of great power, and destroyer of tens of millions of lives Thus begins this episode of Uncommon Knowledge, which dives into the biography of Joseph Stalin. This episodes guest, Stephen Kotkin, author of Stalin: Waiting for Hitler, 1929-1941(https://www.amazon.com/Stalin-Waiting), examines the political career of Joseph Stalin in the years leading up to World War II, his domination over the Soviet Union, and the terror he inspired by the Great Purge from 193638. Why does Joseph Stalin matter? is a key question for Kotkin, as he explains the history of the Soviet Union and Stalins enduring impact on his country and the world. Kotkin argues that Stalin is the gold standard for dictatorships in regard to the amount of power he managed to obtain and wield throughout his lifetime. Stalin stands out because not only was he able to build a massive amount of military power, he managed to stay in power for three decades, much longer than any comparable dictator. Kotkin and Robinson discuss collectivization and communism and how Stalins regime believed it had to eradicate capitalism within the USSR even in regions where capitalism was bringing economic success to the peasants, with the potential of destabilizing the regime. This led to the Great Purge, a campaign of political repression that resulted in the exile and execution of millions of people. For the full transcript go to https://www.hoover.org/research/why-d

Armchair Thriller: Rachel In Danger #4/4 The Inquiring Mind

This was the first of ITV`s ARMCHAIR THRILLER serials which would start with the Thames TV landscape logo coming up on screen modified so that instead of being daytime it`d be night time . The title sequence of the show was fairly memorable of a darkened room with a shadow falling across a chair centered in the middle of the room then the shadow sitting in it . Suddenly the camera crash zooms onto the shadows face
If memory serves me right RACHEL IN DANGER is rather contrived . A man bumps into an old associate called Juan ( Played by Stephen Greif who BLAKES 7 fans will know as Travis ) so they go back to the man`s house where Juan murders him and steals his identity . It turns out Juan is an international terrorist whose group is going to assassinate HRH Queen Elizabeth the second a bit like THE NAKED GUN without the humour . It then turns out the murdered man has a daughter called Rachel who he hasn`t seen for many years who just happens to paying him a holiday visit on the day Juan murdered her father . Obviously since she hasn`t seen her dad for several years she won`t be able to recognise him . Being amidst such a dastardly plot involving world proleterian revolution Rachel is in danger of being executed to keep her quiet . The story ends with Juan from BLAKES 7 trying to shoot her majesty at a garden party with a gun disguised as an umbrella which explodes killing comrade Juan . Rachel walks away muttering that she put plasticine in the barrel

Classic TV: Raffles Anthony Valentine #10 A Bad Night The Inquiring Mind

About the series

Raffles was a 1977 television adaptation of the A. J. Raffles stories by Ernest William Hornung. The series was produced by Yorkshire Television and written by Philip Mackie. The episodes were largely faithful adaptations of the stories in the books, though occasionally two stories would be merged to create one episode such as The Gold Cup which featured elements from both A Jubilee Present and The Criminologists Club. 

About this episode

Raffles and Bunny fail to score during a burglary attempt on an unscrupulous moneylender named Brigstock, while staying at the same hotel. Later, a friend of Raffles named Teddy Garland, who has been roped into massive debt by Brigstock, comes to Raffles for help. For Teddy and for his fiance, Camilla Belsize, Raffles comes up with a complicated plan to save Teddy from ruin, with Bunnys help.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats S06 E03 High Roller The Inquiring Mind

Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

Classic TV Comedy: Butterflies S04 E07 Loose Ends with Wendy Craig, Geoffrey Palmer,Bruce Montague, Nicholas Lyndhurst Final Episode The Inquiring Mind

Butterflies is a British sitcom series written by Carla Lane that was broadcast on BBC2 from 1978 to 1983.

The situation is the day-to-day life of the Parkinson family in a bittersweet style. There are both traditional comedy sources (Rias cooking, family squabbles) and more unusual sources such as Rias unconsummated relationship with the outwardly-successful Leonard. Ria is still in love with her husband, Ben, and has raised two potentially fine sons, yet finds herself dissatisfied and in need of something more. Throughout the series Ria searches for that something more and finds some solace in her unconventional friendship with Leonard. In a 2002 interview, Carla Lane explained, I wanted to write a comedy about a woman contemplating adultery.

Gresham College: Prof Lord Plant Religion and Values in a Liberal State: Selling Yourself Short The body, property and markets #4/12 The Inquiring Mind

Very interesting lecture, especially in todays world. Well worth watching IMHO.

For NZ viewers, in particular this series has resonance in respect of the ongoing discussion of secular, morality and belief systems.

Fascinating.

About this series

An exploration of some of the central ideas and principles that make up a liberal democratic society and its associated market economy. The lectures look in detail at what a theological understanding can bring to these ideas and principles. Freedom, justice, rights, community, civic virtue, property and charity all of these are vitally important ideas and values in understanding modern society and there is a rich tradition of thought, including theological thought, about what they mean and how these meanings should be reflected in institutions. Thinking further on these values will lead to a better understanding of how we are to understand claims about social justice and injustice, poverty and freedom, community and individuality, and rights and obligations in the context of a liberal capitalist society.

About this lecture

It might be thought that if I own anything then I own my body and this idea has been crucial in justifying rights to private property through the exercise of my intellectual and physical capacities.  In addition if I own my body it might be thought that I should be in a position to determine what I should do with it for example in selling organs and bodily products such as blood, stem cells or gene lines. In this lecture we shall look in detail at the issue of self ownership and its relationship to property rights and the idea of the body as a commodity.

Classic Silent Film: It (1927) Clara Bow, Elinor Glynn Romantic Comedy The Inquiring Mind

It is a 1927 silent romantic comedy film which tells the story of a shop girl who sets her sights on the handsome and wealthy boss of the department store where she works. Because of this film, actress Clara Bow became a major star of the highest magnitude, and as result, became known as the It girl.

Wikipedia

It is a 1927 silentromantic comedy film that tells the story of a shop girl who sets her sights on the handsome, wealthy boss of the department store where she works. It is based on a novella by Elinor Glyn that was originally serialized in Cosmopolitan magazine.

This film turned actress Clara Bow into a major star, and led people to label her the It girl.

The film had its world premiere in Los Angeles on January 14, 1927, followed by a New York showing on February 5, 1927. It was released to the general public on February 19, 1927.

The picture was considered lost for many years, but a Nitrate-copy was found in Prague in the 1960s. In 2001, It was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.

Spunky shopgirl Betty Lou Spence (Clara Bow) has a crush on her handsome employer, Cyrus Waltham, Jr. (Antonio Moreno), the new manager of and heir to the worlds largest store. However, they belong to different social classes and he is already romantically linked to blonde socialite Adela Van Norman (Jacqueline Gadsden). But Cyruss silly friend Monty (William Austin) notices Betty, and she uses him to get closer to Cyrus.

When Betty finally gets Cyruss attention, she convinces him to take her on a date to Coney Island, where he is introduced to the proletarian pleasures of roller coasters and hot dogs and has a wonderful time. At the end of the evening he tries to kiss her. She slaps his face and hurries out of his car and into her flat, but then peeks out her window at him as he is leaving.

The next day, meddling welfare workers are trying to take away the baby of Bettys sickly roommate Molly (Priscilla Bo...

PELL GUILTY AS CHARGED No Minister

In a decision that will have sent shockwaves through the Catholic Church in Australia and beyond Cardinal George Pell, the third most senior cleric in the Vatican hierarchy holding as he does the position of Secretary for the Economy, was this week found guilty by an Australian court on five charges relating to the abuse of two choirboys at St Patrick's Cathedral in the late 1990s when he was the Archbishop of Melbourne.

In a somewhat strange decision all details regarding his conviction have been suppressed from the media in Oz ... FFS, he's been found guilty.   The trial has been concluded.

Mr Pell (not sure if he remains a 'Prince of the Church') has been released on bail pending his sentencing in February.   The Judge ordered that Pell be taken into custody at that time.

Pell is human,   Clearly he has has human frailties.   His conviction reinforces the point that no-one, however high his/her station, is above the law.   That is how it should be.  

I'm not Catholic but clearly the faith gives comfort to many hundreds of millions and the actions of errant Priests should not be seen as representative of the vast majority of Catholic clergy and used to bludgeon the Church ... but I suspect it will.

WINSTON FIRST PROMOTES 'STONING' BY CONSENT No Minister

One is entitled to ask why Winston First (under pressure?) capitulated to the Greens and Labour and supported the third reading of the Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Bill.   

In doing so they will have alienated their remaining (if any) right wing support. 

No matter that the Bill is completely silent on the regulatory framework that will underpin the legislation.   Instead the Bill abrogates that to officials who will now seek feedback on how the scheme should operate and develop standards with 'expert' help.   One might have expected that to be part and parcel of the Bill but not so for this government.    Set up (another) working party to hammer out the details away from the scrutiny of parliament..

Let's be very clear ... NZ First went into the election with their stated policy being that any attempt to change the law on the use of cannabis would be determined by referendum ... I'll repeat that ... any attempt to change the law on the use of cannabis would be determined by referendum.   No ifs, buts or maybes.    Clearly that went out the window along with the bit on Maori seats.    Instead, when the Greens and Labour said jump ... Winston said 'how high Sir'. 

Were Winston First to be true to itself they should at least have abstained from voting on the Bill.   Instead they supported poorly drafted legislation that opens the door to the Greens long cherished view that the use of cannabis should be decriminalised.  Greens 1 vs NZ First 0.

DW: Inequality How wealth becomes power #2/2 The Inquiring Mind

Christoph Grner is one of the richest people in Germany. The son of two teachers, he has worked his way to the top. He believes that many children in Germany grow up without a fair chance and wants to step in. But can this really ease inequality? Christoph Grner does everything he can to drum up donations and convince the wealthy auction guests to raise their bids. The more the luxury watch for sale fetches, the more money there will be to pay for a new football field, or some extra tutoring, at a childrens home. Christoph Grner is one of the richest people in Germany his company is now worth one billion euros, he tells us. For seven months, he let our cameras follow him into board meetings, onto construction sites, through his daily life, and in his charity work. He knows that someone like him is an absolute exception in Germany. His parents were both teachers, and he still worked his way to the top. He believes that many children in Germany grow up without a fair chance. What we see here is total failure across the board, he says. It starts with parents who just dont get it and cant do anything right. And then theres an education policy that has opened the gates wide to the chaos we are experiencing today. Chistoph Grner wants to step in where state institutions have failed. But can that really ease inequality? In Germany, getting ahead depends more on where you come from than in most other industrialized countries, and social mobility is normally quite restricted. Those on top stay on top. The same goes for those at the bottom. A new study shows that Germanys rich and poor both increasingly stay amongst themselves, without ever intermingling with other social strata. Even the middle class is buckling under the mounting pressure of an unsecure future. Land of Inequality searches for answers as to why. We talk to families, an underpaid nurse, as well as leading researchers and analysts such as economic Nobel Prize laureate Joseph Stiglitz, sociologist Jutta Allmendinger or the economist Raj Chetty, who conducted a Stanford investigation into how the middle class is now arming itself to improve their childrens outlooks.
