Fists raised, and frozen…

26 10 2005

The event that had two sprinters from San Jose State University banned from the Olympics in 1968 and resulted in death threats against them has also resulted in a statue in their honour.


Tommie Smth and John Carlos, on the podium (1968), and frozen in time in their statue(2005).





Rosa Parks 1913-2005

24 10 2005

Rosa Parks died today.  She was 92.

What have you done to help stem racism of ALL kinds?

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

Pastor Martin Niemöller

Rosa spoke out!  You need to speak, and act as well!





Various Digital Cameras have CCD flaws

17 10 2005

There appears to be a variety of cameras (about 58 now) which have flaws in their CCD’s.  The camera manufacturers have stood behind their products though, and are willing to fix the problems for free. 

For an extended list of failing cameras see this Imaging Resource article.





Colorado Judge tosses out Moore suit against Bertuzzi

13 10 2005

Ha!

It looks like if he wants to proceed, it’ll have to be up here, and we don’t give out judgements in the multi-millioon dollar range.  You can’t pick your location for your lawsuit just because it’ll get you more money.

Fish Farming damage exposed on US network prime time televison!

12 10 2005


Pink salmon fry with sea lice attached.  This fish will die.

Did you see Boston Legal on October 11th?  They raised the issue of Pink salmon being killed by sea lice from Atlantic Salmon farms!  This is great..  American exposure to the problems caused by fish farms.  Lot’s of buzz in the Pacific fishing world about this episode.  Even some East Coast blogs are talking about  it!

Lots of information about the sea lice issue can be found.  The fish farms are fighting back, and things are heating up.  There’s no such thing as bad PR?  For the sake of the fish I hope this is NOT the case for the farms.

Even though the Boston Legal episode was a bit light hearted, it is a VERY serious issue, and one that Britain and Norway faced a long time ago, almost destroying their sea-run trout populations where fish farms existed.  This has GOT TO stop, or it’ll be Tofu with salmon flavoring in our future 😦
