Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432622658CC G+

Vũ Phá0So, someone asked me if when would i share a themed circle. I share circles of mixes of different people because i think it brings diversity of the circle.Well people, should i share a themed circle? Well if i would, it would be a different circle though, and it would be less frequent than my other two circles.. (this circle and the snowball one)Well circle Yulia seems kind since she did not remove any people this time, instead she added some!So everyone, this circle obviously contains people. They seem to be pretty normal perhaps.  Hahaha! :-P.Well they engage with people and they have great content in their profiles. Some in here are photographers, philosophers, humorists and everything nice! These guys are not only suggested by me but also suggested by others. So yea, i believe it's a pretty great mix... :-DNote: If ever you want to suggest someone to be included in the future editions of this circle, just tag them in the comments!2014-02-06 16:37:31501537CC G+

"One day after roiling tensions over the police shooting of a black teenager here began to subside, emotions flared anew on Friday as the police identified the officer involved but also released evidence that the victim was a suspect in a convenience store robbery moments before being shot.

The manner in which the police here released the information, which included a 19-page police report on the robbery but no new details about the shooting, led to the spectacle of dueling police news conferences, one led by a white officer who seemed ill at-ease and defensive, and the other dominated by a charismatic black officer who expressed solidarity with the crowd even as he pleaded for peace.

I have to say that I found it ironic when Perry said:

“We don’t settle political differences with indictments in this country,” said Perry, wagging an accusatory finger. “It is outrageous that some would use partisan political theatrics to rip away at the very fabric of our state’s constitution."

For a member of the party that is currently suing the President, this was pretty funny.

"Who will provide the van Persie moment of the Women’s World Cup next year in Canada? United States forward Abby Wambach can tell you who it won’t be.

“I’m not going in for a diving header like van Persie did, no way,” she told me last week, which sounded weird coming from a player known for such plays.

Her reasoning was simple. Performing a diving header on a grass field is one thing; doing it on artificial turf — which, for the first time, will be used for every field at next year’s women’s championship — is something else altogether."

If Sutton (the swing vote on the three-judge panel) decides to uphold same-sex marriage bans in Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee, he will go against EVERY other court decision rendered since Windsor and set-up a show down in the U.S. Supreme Court, where 9 people (really, 5) will decide the rights of millions. During oral argument, Sutton seemed to indicate that one basis for upholding the bans in his belief that, in a democracy, the majority should be allowed to decide who is permitted to marry.

That was the law until the late 60s, when the "majority" decided racial minorities could not marry whites. It took a Supreme Court decision to overturn those laws--in Loving v. Virginia (1967).

Movie Lovers and Book Lovers - Movie Adaptations

Yesterday we talked about movies based on books, good and bad. But today, I thought we'd flip that around. Are there good book adaptations of movies? Is it possible for things to move in the other direction and have movies inspire a book that people enjoy reading and that, perhaps, take on a life of its own? Let's hear your thoughts here.

"On Monday, a group of parents and teachers and a charter school operator were in court in Baton Rouge arguing that the governor’s withdrawal of the state from a testing contract aligned with the Common Core — a set of reading and math standards intended to guide teachers from kindergarten through high school graduation — amounted to an “attempt to usurp the authority” of the Legislature and the board of education.

Mr. Jindal, a Republican who many believe has presidential aspirations for 2016, has become an outspoken detractor of academic standards that he ardently supported when the state originally adopted them in 2010, along with more than 40 other states."

"Even if Michael Brown were a petty thief, this does not excuse the cold-blooded shooting death of the 18-year-old. Of course the right-wing took the robbery claim at face value, and began labeling Michael Brown as a ‘thug‘ who did not deserve due process.

But instead it looked like he was a teenager who was enjoying a few cigars which he purchased at the local store. The store owners did not claim he stole from them. Video evidence shows him paying for the cigars found on him. The police attempt to paint Michael Brown as anything but a victim is a complete and total fraud."

Movie Lovers and Book Lovers - Book Adaptations

Some of the best movies are sourced or based on books. Some of the worst too. Which are your favorite book adaptations? Which movies based on books rose to equal, if not surpass, the original source material? And which movies so failed that it was painful to watch? Let's start off the week, crack open our books and turn on our projectors.

For knocking his fiance unconscious and dragging her out of an elevator by her hair, Rice got two games from Goodell, but he got bupkus from the state of New Jersey.

New Jersey Superior Court Judge Michael Donio and and D.A. Jim McClain kept Rice out of jail by putting him in a diversion program for first time offenders.

They weren’t feeling quite as merciful when single mother of two Shaneen Allen was pulled over for a traffic violation and volunteered to the cop that she was carrying a gun, for which she had a Pennsylvania concealed-carry permit. (She lives across the river in Philadelphia.)

She didn’t know that New Jersey didn’t recognize Pennsylvania’s permit to carry. (We’ll leave the stupidity of that for another time.)

Allen was arrested and neither Donio nor McClain has been willing to dismiss the charges or send her to a diversion program.

For knocking his fiance unconscious and dragging her out of an elevator by her hair, Rice got two games from Goodell, but he got bupkus from the state of New Jersey.

She didn’t know that New Jersey didn’t recognize Pennsylvania’s permit to carry. (We’ll leave the stupidity of that for another time.)

Allen was arrested and neither Donio nor McClain has been willing to dismiss the charges or send her to a diversion program.

Allen is looking at a mandatory 42-month prison sentence if she’s convicted.

If she is convicted and does the jail time, she probably won’t get a standing ovation when she goes back to any of her three jobs as Rice did when he showed up for the first day of Baltimore Ravens training camp.

Shaneen Allen decided to become a legal gun owner after she had been robbed twice. Her intent was to prevent herself from being the victim of another crime.

Ray Rice committed a crime and got a pass.

The media outrage over the NFL’s puny penalty was long and loud.

Do you recall hearing a lot of outrage over Rice avoiding jail time?

It’s time to direct some loud and long outrage at Judge Michael Donio and District Attorney Jim McClain.___

Kind of hard for them to argue that the word is being used only "in the context of professional football," though, when it's often accompanied by a logo that features the face of a Native American man.

And do words really become less offensive when they are in uppercase form?"___

The white officer, Thomas Jackson, the police chief in Ferguson, changed his account several times during the day, while the black officer, Captain Ronald S. Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol, expressed his displeasure with how the information had been released.

“I would have liked to have been consulted,” he said pointedly about the pairing of the shooter’s identity with the robbery accusation.

...

In a later news conference, on Friday afternoon at Forestwood Park, a sports complex in Ferguson, Chief Jackson said that Officer Wilson had not been aware that Mr. Brown “was a suspect in the case” and instead had stopped him and a companion “because they were walking down the street blocking traffic.”

So, this young man ends up dead because he was walking down the street blocking traffic. And, after this, the local police behave like an occupying army. Something just doesn't seem kosher here.___
