Daria Musk3,623,319*IT'S OUR FIRST HANGOUTIVERSARY* _G+niuses, I'm so thrilled to announce this biG+ concert celebration! Last summer I met you in my first Hangout Concert and you changed my life overnight. Now it's one year later and whether you're in New York City or around the world on Aug 10th, I want to see your faces and sing your praises, like alwayses. ❤ Details below!_ *JOE'S PUB GOES PUBLIC* On August 10th we're going rock out and hangout live from on of New York City's most famous stages - Joe's Pub! It might sound like the name of a little dive bar like the one I was lugging my amps through the rain to play this time last year, but it's actually an incredibly beautiful music spot, widely-known as the best sounding venue in the city. It's a part of The Public Theater (think Shakespeare In The Park). Adele, Bono, Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, and many more have sung from its stage..._And now we're taking that stage together with a giant on-stage Hangout!_ _It'll be the first live-interactive global show in the venue's storied history. We're crashing the party guys! ;)_ *READY TO CELEBRATE?* Here's details to come be there live in person - _Hugs! Cupcakes! Bubbly Toasts! Balloons!_ and if you can't get to NYC here's the details to join the hangout live and a guest-star on stage. _BE THERE IN PERSON:_ ♬ Get Tickets: www.joespub.com or 212.967.7555 ♬ Address: 425 Lafayette St, NYC ♬ Doors open at 9pm  ♬ Show starts at 10pm ♬ Raise a glass, sing along, rush the stage, celebrate the night away with me and our nyc family _Note: I hope to be joined by some other awesome musicians who you know from Hangouts here! Special guests TBA!_ _HANGOUT FROM AROUND THE WORLD:_ ♬ Comment here to be added to the first-invite circle! (We'll rotate like always) ♬ Find the Hangout on my G+ Page: +Daria Musk and my YouTube page: www.youtube.com/dariamusk ♬ Global Times: http://bit.ly/P0Rwzu *Thank You For The Best Year Of My Life* This relationship is getting serious G+. We've spent every waking minute together for a year. You've changed my life. You've changed my heart. I've written you love songs. You've met my mama. And now it's time to celebrate our first anniversary together. See you there. XO, DariaDaria Musk :::: Hangoutiversary Concert :::: Live In NYC2012-08-10 22:00:00110

Russell Miller5,935This circle has slightly changed its composition in the last few weeks.  A few were added, and sadly a few removed too.  I appreciate all of the people in my circles, but this circle is full of people who usually post really good stuff (far above average).  Stuff that makes you think, stuff that makes you laugh, and occasionally stuff that makes you hit the mute button.You can't go wrong with this circle.  In my opinion, anyway.2014-11-27 04:55:3141000

Russell Miller5,853This is the circle that I presently have as "Good Posters".  It doesn't mean anyone in my other circles necessarily isn't, it's just what this circle is at this particular point in time.If you circle these people, you're pretty sure to get mostly good posts and very little bullshit (though I make no guarantees, any one could go nuts one night and completely trash everything. :) )I'm including myself because I'm narcissistic that way. :) #circleshare  2014-11-01 01:04:0738102

Tessa Schlesinger20,569This is the circle of people I follow. I am not in it (so I'm not promoting myself). I follow them because they are interesting, sincere, have good stuff. Some of them have been here with me from day one.  They don't always interact every day, but I think it really depends on what you're looking for on G+. If you want people to interact with you, well, nobody can interact with everybody who adds them. There just isn't enough time to do that. On the other hand, if you'd like to read someone because they present informative, interesting, entertaining stuff, then this circle is interesting. I think it would appeal to atheists, agnostics, people who love beauty, travel, occasional humor, who are visual, intellectual, thinkers, humanist, and/or liberal. :)2014-05-08 15:31:52186503

Indeed, President Obama and his team are probably looking back at the 2012 race with glee right about now:
 
* The Romney Standard: Mitt Romney said during the 2012 campaign that if Americans elect him, he’d get the unemployment rate down to 6% by 2016. Obama won anyway and the unemployment rate dropped below 6% two years faster.
 
* The Gingrich Standard: Newt Gingrich said during the 2012 campaign that if Americans re-elected the president, gas prices would reach $10 per gallon, while Gingrich would push gas down to $2.50 a gallon. As of this morning, the national average at the pump is a little under $2.38.
 
* The Pawlenty Standard: Tim Pawlenty said trillions of dollars in tax breaks would boost economic growth to 5% GDP. Obama actually raised taxes on the wealthy and GDP growth reached 5% anyway.

Once a "New Labour" grandee who was one of only a few ministers to serve as a member of the Cabinet throughout the New Labour era, Jack Straw's just suffered an ignominious fall from grace.

It's perhaps a measure of the deep cynicism with which I hold politicians that my first thought at reading this was, "All this just for £60,000 per year?" But then again, I come from the developing world where we are used to stories of graft that run into the billions of dollars and where "leaders" impoverish entire nations for generations.

I suppose though that Mr. Straw will have to do with remaining Mr. Straw for the rest of his days if the allegations are true. So much for that peerage...

Welcome to Monday. Jack Straw MP and former foreign secretary has suspended himself from the Labour party... Oh and Malcom Rifkind MP seems to have been at it too.

"At one meeting, Mr Straw is said to have described how he operated "under the radar" to use his influence to change European Union rules on behalf of a commodity firm which paid him £60,000 a year.

He was also said to have claimed to have used "charm and menace" to convince the Ukrainian prime minister to change laws on behalf of the same firm.

The meetings to discuss possible consultancy work were said to have taken place in his House of Commons office - a potential breach of Commons rules.

Sir Malcolm, who chairs the parliamentary committee which oversees Britain's intelligence agencies, was said to have claimed that he could arrange "useful access" to every British ambassador in the world because of his status."

Roll on May___Once a "New Labour" grandee who was one of only a few ministers to serve as a member of the Cabinet throughout the New Labour era, Jack Straw's just suffered an ignominious fall from grace.

It's perhaps a measure of the deep cynicism with which I hold politicians that my first thought at reading this was, "All this just for £60,000 per year?" But then again, I come from the developing world where we are used to stories of graft that run into the billions of dollars and where "leaders" impoverish entire nations for generations.

I suppose though that Mr. Straw will have to do with remaining Mr. Straw for the rest of his days if the allegations are true. So much for that peerage...

Gosh. Not what one would expect from a body supposedly *promoting" women's rights. But I guess things work differently in China....

Meanwhile, the All China Women’s Federation, a government body founded to promote women’s rights, published an article in 2011 titled “Leftover Women Do Not Deserve Our Sympathy.” Girls might “hope to further their education in order to increase their competitiveness,” the article declared. “The tragedy is, they don't realize that as women age, they are worth less and less. So by the time they get their M.A. or Ph.D. they are already old—like yellowed pearls.”

According to this "learned" Saudi historian, women in Britain, in America, and in the rest of the Arab world drive because they are OK with being raped. But wait, it gets better!

In Saudi Arabia, women are treated like queens because they are chauffeured around by their fathers, brothers, uncles, and other male relatives. But is it not true that this may still cause problems?

The historian admits it and comes up with a solution that leaves the host with her palm firmly planted on her face.

Two Beijing-based photographers, Stefen Chow and Lin Hui-Yi, started a project called The Poverty Line in which they invite residents of several developed and developing countries to take pictures of the amount of food a person living at the official poverty line can buy each day. In the Malaysian case, that's the amount of food you can buy for US$1.36 per day (the equivalent for the US is US$4.91).

The result is a visually powerful reminder of the challenges of poverty. The initiators of this project want their work to encourage discussion, so discuss away.

There is massive privation for people suffering from poverty everywhere but it is especially hard in the developing world.

So this has been going on in my country.

Malaysia is seeing the worst floods in at least 40 years with over 132,000 people displaced. That's about 0.4% of the entire population having to relocate. Scaled up to a country the size of the United States with a population of 316 million, that's 1.26 million "US equivalent" population relocated. It's no wonder they're calling it "Malaysia's Katrina moment".

My family and I are fine since we live off the west coast away from the brunt of the storms. But the scale of the flooding is difficult to visualise.

Indeed, President Obama and his team are probably looking back at the 2012 race with glee right about now:
 
* The Romney Standard: Mitt Romney said during the 2012 campaign that if Americans elect him, he’d get the unemployment rate down to 6% by 2016. Obama won anyway and the unemployment rate dropped below 6% two years faster.
 
* The Gingrich Standard: Newt Gingrich said during the 2012 campaign that if Americans re-elected the president, gas prices would reach $10 per gallon, while Gingrich would push gas down to $2.50 a gallon. As of this morning, the national average at the pump is a little under $2.38.
 
* The Pawlenty Standard: Tim Pawlenty said trillions of dollars in tax breaks would boost economic growth to 5% GDP. Obama actually raised taxes on the wealthy and GDP growth reached 5% anyway.

The crux of the matter is that the CIA tortured a lot of folks - many of whom were totally innocent and did not play any role in "global terrorism". Now that the Obama administration has acknowledged that these abuses did take place, is the Obama administration going to actively prosecute the people who permitted this?

Or is the extent of "action" going to be simply this, "We did some wrong stuff under the previous administration but now that we've cleared the air about the wrong stuff that we did, let's move on"?

I fear it's the latter...

Because this has been happening for many years (in America), I'm pretty sure that all stores who have these 'super specials' purposely do this in order to get people to fight over goods. Because it becomes headlines, it's free publicity, which sells them even more goods. And that means more profit, and that's the point. 

So why do people who fight like animals? It's attention. People who are desperate for attention do this a) they can boast about a cheap purchase b) they see it on TV so they think it's acceptable c) they're extremely unevolved people dominated by lustful appetites.___When Britain first, at Heaven's command

It was good to have a "proper" English breakfast for a change but here's my bit of controversy for the day: I feel the English breakfast does not hold a candle to the Malaysian breakfast. The English breakfast sometimes feels a bit "assembled" - it is something that any home chef can do and many of the differences in quality lie in the quality of the ingredients that one has purchased. The Malaysian breakfast, on the other hand, tends to be cooked for hours before it is served for breakfast. As a result, the skill of the cook strongly influences the breakfast and people tend to have their favourite nasi lemak or kuay teow soup places or what have you. Although I guess the idea of having rice or noodles for breakfast sounds strange to the uninitiated. :)

Still, this English breakfast plays an important role in helping me overcome my jetlag although I still feel tired at inappropriate times..

Oh, and happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!___

While clients have received the recent development with a sigh of relief, one former client had harsh words for the management.

“It's a good thing I have moved my company vessels to Westports.  For us as a shipping line, an hour of delay translates to easily US$20,000 (RM66,000) in operational cost and lost opportunities,” said the senior shipping line executive.

The politician simply smiled, sipped his drink, and finally countered, "Ah, but who created the chaos?"___

Dear ladies of America,

As an expert on women, this guy knows women better than you women know yourselves. Therefore, believe him when he says that women want to be catcalled on the streets.

Sure, you might think that you just want to be left alone but that's because your pliable minds have been influenced by all that feminazi BS.

Because feminazis want to convince you that if you're being catcalled, you are being harassed. But think about the poor guy's perspective, maybe if he didn't catcall, feminazis would still be targeting man for harassing them by not catcalling. It is so hard to be a man.

And if you women cannot overcome your feminazi programming, and you feel threatened by guys catcalling you, you know, just get a gun!

Yo woman. I'm gonna tell you how it really is, because as an MRA, I'm an expert on how women think and how they feel. And women like being catcalled, that's why men keep doing it.

I want to slap this guy in the face and facepalm at the same time.

Dear Chicago women,

If you'd just smile a bit more, take off your sunglasses and earbuds so this guy can pass you creepy unsolicited compliments like "Your eyes match your scarf", that would make him (and a lot of guys like him) much less frustrated.

Because, you know, it's all about relieving his frustrations. Nothing to do with you simply wanting to be left alone because that would be really anti-social of you.

How the hell do you parody someone like this idiot?
I'm dying to stop you on the street and pay you the occasional compliment ("You're really rocking that tweed dress today - I love your style."). But I can't - because you're always walking around with your damn earbuds in ("Don't talk to me!") and your sunglasses on, even when they're not necessary (which incidentally doesn't make you look cool or sexy, only unapproachable). I can't speak for my male brethren, but for this guy? So. Frustrating
Data point: The earbud tactic still works! Yay!

There'll be a two day seminar at the National University of Malaysia (UKM in Malay) on the influence of djinn and withcraft in medicine.

And some people wonder why Malaysian universities are not taken seriously....

Marty McLain is a pastor from Georgia who believes that the Bible should be taken literally.

So, watch what happens when he is brought to Scandinavia to see what they think of religious beliefs. 

He ends up saying, "Wow!" a lot.

h/t +Jaana Nyström 

While interviewing several members of a church in Copenhagen, McLain makes the mistake of assuming that, given their faith, they must be homophobes like he is. After he laments the fact that the oppressive government made Denmark’s churches perform same-sex marriages, the Reverend had to awkwardly tell him that neither he nor anyone else at the church had a problem with gay people. McLain’s pained expression is priceless.

This "questionable trial" should end tomorrow and we shall finally have some closure on what Anwar Ibrahim's fate will be.

At this point in time, Anwar has technically been found guilty of sodomy and sentenced to 5 years prison with a stay of execution pending his appeal to the Federal Court (the final appellate court).

If the Federal Court upholds the guilty verdict, then Anwar Ibrahim is off to jail, the opposition will probably be thrown into disarray, there will be a by-election in his seat of Permatang Pauh and Kuala Lumpur will probably experience a few public protests in the coming days. There is also a cross-appeal by the prosecution to sentence him to more than 5 years. Whether it's 5 years or more, Anwar's political career will be finished.

There is also a cross-appeal by the prosecution to sentence him to more than 5 years. Whether it's 5 years or more, Anwar's political career will be finished.

If the Federal Court overturns the guilty verdict, Anwar goes free and the whole sodomy playbook can no longer be used against him. Anwar has been bogged down by accusations of sodomy for the past 17 years but never actually found guilty and punished for it - he was acquitted the first time round but served time for corruption.

Either way, it will be a game changer. The first scenario means that the political opposition in Malaysia will officially move into the "post-Anwar" era and it is unclear to see who will ultimately take the mantle as the "No. 1" of the Pakatan Rakyat pact. 

The second scenario means there will be some (temporary) backlash against the ruling government while Anwar will be able to ride a popularity crest for a while. Until he opens his mouth and says something that seriously undermines his credibility again.

Interesting times...___

I suppose I'm a few hours late since Halloween is pretty much over in most time zones. I hope nobody went out with inappropriate Halloween outfits like this though..
