American Friends” – rare 1991 Michael Palin 19th Century British Comedy

“Monty Python’s Sir Michael Palin plays Francis Ashby, a senior Oxford professor on holiday in the Swiss Alps in 1861. There he meets the American Caroline Hartley (Connie Booth) and her 18-year-old ward Elinor (Trini Alvarado). Ashby is drawn to them both, particularly Elinor, but is rather surprised when they arrive in Oxford and rent a house. Women are not allowed in the college, nor are fellows allowed to marry, which puts him in an embarrassing situation. Ashby’s rival for the post of college president, Oliver Syme (Alfred Molina), takes full advantage of this to try to discredit Ashby.

 

Great acting, awesome Switzerland locations and outstanding, near-perfect 1850s-60s era costuming.  Sir Michael Palin says that the plot was taken from a real-life incident involving his great-grandfather.”

Frisky Old Lady Joke

Russ Wollman

Certified TM Instructor at Maharishi Foundation, USA, Inc. (1979–present) August 15

One day, farmer Jones was in town picking up supplies for his farm. He stopped by the hardware store and picked up a bucket and an anvil. Then, he stopped by the livestock dealer to buy a couple of chickens and a goose. However, he now had a problem: how to carry all of his purchases home.

 

The livestock dealer said, “Why don’t you put the anvil in the bucket, carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand?”

 

“Hey, thanks!” the farmer said, and off he went.

 

While walking he met a little old lady who told him she was lost. She asked,

 

“Can you tell me how to get to 1515 Mockingbird Lane?”

 

The farmer said, “Well, as a matter of fact, I live at 1616 Mockingbird Lane. Let’s take my short cut and go down this alley. We’ll be there in no time.

 

The little old lady said, “I am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me. How do I know that when we get in the alley you won’t hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt, and ravish me?”

 

The farmer said, “Holy smokes lady! I am carrying a bucket, an anvil, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?”

 

The lady said, “Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the anvil on top of the bucket, and I’ll hold the chickens.”

An old lady was standing at the railing of a cruise ship holding her hat on tight so that it wouldn’t blow off in the wind. A gentleman approached her and said “pardon me madam, I don’t intend to be forward but did you know that your dress is blowing up in this high wind?” “Yes, I know” said the old lady. “I need both hands to hold onto this hat.” “But madam, you aren’t wearing anything under your dress and your privates are exposed” said the gentleman in earnest. The woman looked down, then back up at the man and replied “sir, anything you see down there is 85 yrs old, I just bought this hat yesterday.

Craft-a-crime with the Identify and Disrupt Bill

By Binoy Kampmark Monday September 13, 2021

“The ledger of Australian security legislation has again been filled, with the passage of the Surveillance Legislation Amendment (Identify and Disrupt) Bill 2020. On August 25, it sailed through both houses of the parliament with minimal fuss.
The legislation in question enables the Australian Federal Police and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission to effectively fiddle the data record of suspected criminals.”

“The security organisations now have a range of powers to modify, add, duplicate or delete material in the course of investigating online crimes. There is no prerequisite that the data in question be relevant to the investigation.”

 

“Supposedly, it modernises, if one can call it that, the Surveillance Devices Act 2004 and the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979.”

The release makes no mention of clinic closures ?statewide in NSW and ACT.

It is estimated that 19,866 women and 164 men in Australia will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021 (Cancer Council). The closure of BreastScreen NSW means there are women (and men) who are none the wiser that they have a ticking time bomb in their chest. A delay in diagnosis, even weeks, WILL have devastating impacts for some women, and their families.”

Phony Diagnoses Hide High Rates of Drugging at Nursing Homes

At least 21 percent of nursing home residents are on antipsychotic drugs, a Times investigation found.

“With the doctor’s new diagnosis, Mr. Blakeney’s antipsychotic prescription disappeared from Dundee Manor’s public record.

Eight months following his admission with a long list of ailments — and after round-the-clock sedation, devastating weight loss, pneumonia and severe bedsores that required one of his feet to be amputated — Mr. Blakeney was dead.”

 

TRANSLATION: “SPRING BLOSSOMS, AUTUMN WINDS”—ANALYSIS OF WEIBO REPLIES TO LI WENLIANG

Posted by Samuel Wade | May 27, 2021

“Dr. Li Wenliang’s death on February 7, 2020 resulted in an unprecedented spontaneous outpouring of grief on China’s social media. The young ophthalmologist was widely identified as one of eight whistleblowers punished for sounding the alarm about a new SARS-like disease spreading in Wuhan in late December 2019. After receiving an admonishment notice from local police, Li returned to work at Wuhan Central Hospital. He contracted coronavirus, and passed away soon after. Li became a uniquely emotive focal point of public backlash against the heavy-handed opacity cloaking the earliest weeks of the outbreak.”

Lost in L.A.? Fire Department Can Find You with What3words Location Technology
CNet
Stephen Shankland July 22, 2021

The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) has entered into a partnership with digital location startup What3words, which assigns a unique three-word name to each of 57 billion 10-foot-square spots on Earth. The department had been testing the application since last year, using it to locate places that emergency crews needed to reach even if the sites lacked conventional addresses. LAFD receives What3words locations through 911 calls on Android phones or iPhones, or through text messages sent by dispatchers with links that retrieve the three-word addresses. People also can use the What3words app to pinpoint their own locations. Increasing numbers of signs identify locations with their What3words designations, particularly in wildlands.
