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 15:25:36432622658

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 16:37:31501537

Great opinion, well worth reading. If you are at all interested in the discussion of voting rights and Voter ID laws, you need to check this out. Take the time to read it through.

As if we needed more indications of how corrupt FIFA is. Yes, we're ok, trust us, but no, you can't see the report.

"World soccer's governing body has fully investigated the scandal-plagued bidding process for the next two World Cups and wants everyone to know that it has things totally under control. But you'll have to take their word on that, because FIFA says it will not make its investigation report public.

Hans-Joachim Eckert, the German judge who heads the adjudicatory arm of FIFA's ethics committee, said in an interview with FIFA's website that publishing the 360-page report in full "would actually put the FIFA ethics committee and FIFA itself in a very difficult situation legally."

As if we needed more indications of how corrupt FIFA is. Yes, we're ok, trust us, but no, you can't see the report.

"World soccer's governing body has fully investigated the scandal-plagued bidding process for the next two World Cups and wants everyone to know that it has things totally under control. But you'll have to take their word on that, because FIFA says it will not make its investigation report public.

Hans-Joachim Eckert, the German judge who heads the adjudicatory arm of FIFA's ethics committee, said in an interview with FIFA's website that publishing the 360-page report in full "would actually put the FIFA ethics committee and FIFA itself in a very difficult situation legally."

...

The report, which includes 200,000 pages of supporting documents, looked into charges of bribery and other improprieties surrounding the controversial 2010 votes that awarded the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 event to Qatar.

The U.S. finished second in balloting for the 2022 tournament and would likely be favored to host that World Cup should the investigation prove sufficiently damaging to Qatar's organizing committee.

Michael Garcia, the former U.S. attorney for the southern district of New York and head of FIFA's investigative arm, is among those asking for the report's release in an effort to alleviate attacks on FIFA's battered credibility. Several members of FIFA's executive committee, including U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati and European soccer chief Michel Platini, have joined in that call for transparency.

Eckert said only four people have access to Garcia's report, which focuses on breaches of FIFA's ethics code by numerous individuals. London's Guardian newspaper said that in a recent speech in England, Garcia called for FIFA to lift its veil of secrecy in favor of openness.

"The investigation and adjudication process operates in most parts unseen and unheard," he said. "That's a kind of system which might be appropriate for an intelligence agency but not for an ethics compliance progress in an international sports institution that serves the public and is the subject of intense public scrutiny."

And Garcia wasn't the only one taking shots at FIFA's turgid and secretive leadership. UEFA president Platini, speaking to the French sports paper L'Equipe, said FIFA head Sepp Blatter has stopped serving soccer and is instead using the sport to serve him."___

To this day, it is America's most enlightened sports league. Sure, AYSO should probably bite the bullet and hire referees rather than rely on parental volunteers. But AYSO is not every other youth league. Fifty years later, it remains the gold standard.

"Fangate will likely prove to be the most memorable moment of their first high-profile televised debate. But for the roughly 7 percent of voters who remain undecided there were plenty of clear differences to consider:

▪ Crist supports allowing same-sex marriage in Florida and said Florida’s current ban is discriminatory. Scott declined to say whether he considers it discriminatory, but said he supports “traditional marriage.”

▪ Crist wants the state to accept federal funding to expand Medicaid coverage to more than 800,000 Floridians. Scott said he’d only temporarily expand Medicaid if it were 100 percent federally funded.

▪ Crist supports increasing the minimum wage. Scott does not"

"At a certain level, this isn’t entirely new.

But Huck’s making a personal statement about his own threat to book if the GOP doesn’t conspicuously get back on the traditional marriage train. And he’s saying it via the homophobic obsessives of the AFA, who can be sure to broadcast it near and far.”
 
Republican officials usually ignore such threats, confident that when push comes to shove, right-wing culture warriors will stay with the GOP to prevent Democratic victories.
 
Still, Huckabee’s ultimatum reinforces a Republican Party with an awkward dilemma. If the GOP quietly moves towards the mainstream on social issues, it alienates a significant part of the party’s base. If Republicans toe the far-right line on the culture war, the GOP will continue to shrink, pushing away younger voters and a mainstream that’s increasingly respectful of diversity.
 
To be sure, this has long been a challenge for Republicans, but with the party’s demographic challenges becoming more acute, and far-right voices like Huckabee’s growing louder, GOP leaders are left with no good options. Is it any wonder Republicans responded to news from the Supreme Court this week with near-total silence?"___
