Photographer Wins Monkey Selfie Copyright Case, Court Slams PETA

Photographer David Slater has won his legal battle over that monkey selfie. A US appeals court ruled Monday that US copyright law doesn't allow animals to file copyright infringement lawsuits. The decision, made by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, upheld a lower-court ruling that previously

Defoe and the Distance to Utopia

Image/photo

In the wake of recent political shifts and the dystopian flavour they carry for many, J.H. Pearl looks to the works of Daniel Defoe and the lessons they can teach us about bringing utopia home.

Nice article - has encouraged me to re-read book 1, as a primer to reading books 2 & 3, of which I had no knowledge.
That's the summer reading list taken care of - thanks.

After reading those, I want to look at the Utopias in The Tempest by William Shakespeare and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

Let us sit upon the ground
And tell sad stories of the death of kings

Goodnight comrades, see you tomorrow.

I'm not so certain this time around. But it sort of doesn't matter, because the 'Legend of Parlementum' will outlive all of us.
-- @Mike Macgirvin

Perhaps the greatest compliment I have ever received.

The last 10 years have been amazing. I am completely self taught in the realm of websites and servers. It started with a StatusNet instance and a wiki. This is the project I have most enjoyed, and I look forward to continuing as a member and promoter. Tonight I moved the files and ended the parlementum.net hub. In the next few weeks, I will end the email server and be without a VPS.

I just want to say how super easy it was to export/import my calendar and contacts from one CalDav/CardDav to another on Hubzilla.

Out of Right Field: Time to let Ichiro move on
No one involved wants Ichiro Suzuki’s storied big-league career to end this way, but it may be unavoidable.

I had to drink activated charcoal for medical reasons. I have no idea why you would want ingest it for "fun."

Charcoal croissants: why is the black pastry a global hate object?

A restaurant in east London is selling a ‘charcoal-activated vegan croissant’ it claims will help detoxify your body. But the jury’s out on the benefits of eating blackened lumps of carbohydrates

I remember some movie about a guy who was a health-food store owner. He sampled something and said "This is terrible!! I could make a fortune selling this."

Agree, my mum made me do charcoal tablets as a kid when I got sick. Charcoal is not food.

Reminded of when I was staying in the guesthouse of a Monastery up in the mountains in the middle of a tropical rain forest on Trinidad; as one does. Out for a walk, I had the rare privilege of seeing not one, but a whole fluttering of the iridescent Blue Morpho butterflies.

That would be Mount St. Benedict, I presume. I'm told the obligatory rum punch after dinner is delightful.

It is, indeed. Probably the best I tasted in Trinidad. Every place had their own family recipe for the punch.

The duo uncovered thousand-year-old silver coins, pearls, rings and a hammer in northern Germany. They include coins from the reign of Harald Bluetooth of Denmark — possibly from his own trove.

Sorry, GIMP was still open after making the logo.  Sometimes I can't resist an opportunity to do something stupid.

Sorry I missed this, for future reference: roasted root vegetables or a yummy pureed veggie soup.
