Tumblr’s New Lookup Page Lets You Find Friends Via Facebook And Twitter

April 30, 2015

TechCrunch

Popular blogging platform Tumblr has quietly introduced a minor, but notable new feature: a better way to find contacts through your other social networking services or Gmail. On the page available at Tumblr.com/lookup you can now connect your Gmail, Twitter and/or Facebook accounts to find all your friends’ Tumblr blogs.

Handy. Well, handy if you’re the one doing the looking, I suppose. As Buzzfeed’s community moderator Ryan Broderickhilariously tweeted, “Great, thanks to the new http://www.tumblr.com/lookup/ page all my friends will find my One Direction fanblog I moderate!”

Oh and yes they will, too. Because it appears that the option to remove yourself from social discovery is opt-out. While Tumblr doesn’t appear to have made an official announcement on this new feature yet (at least via the official Tumblr blog, that is), the company did tweet, err…re-tweet, about the addition yesterday. And today, responding to an outraged user via…

The Jewish Boycott – A Little Known Means of Ethnic Media Control in America

April 23, 2015

Beyond Highbrow - Robert Lindsay

The The Jewish Boycott is very little known, but it has been used many times by Jews in the US, mostly to shut down newspapers that do not toe the line. 20 years ago, a paper in the Midwest ran an article noting that 59% of Clinton’s Cabinet were Jews (fact) while Jews only make up 2% of the country. The article noted that this was not particularly democratic, and when other groups like Whites or males dominate any field, the calls rain out for affirmative action, quotas, etc., and the Whites and males are accused of discriminating against non-Whites and females.

I would agree that excessive numbers of Whites and men in certain fields is not very democratic. But by the same token what is so democratic about 2% of the population getting 59% of the Cabinet positions under a US President? Is that fair? If it’s fair, explain…

Savages ‘R’ Us

April 23, 2015

Beyond Highbrow - Robert Lindsay

It has often been attempted to exhibit the mental life of savage peoples as profoundly different from our own; to assert that they act from motives, and reach conclusions by means of mental processes, so utterly different from our own motives and processes that we cannot hope to interpret or understand their behavior unless we can first, by some impossible or at least by some hitherto undiscovered method, learn the nature of these mysterious motives and processes.

These attempts have recently been renewed in influential quarters. If these views were applied to the savage peoples of the interior of Borneo, we should characterize them as fanciful delusions natural to the anthropologist who has spent all the days of his life in a stiff collar and a black coat upon the well-paved ways of civilized society. We have no hesitation in saying that, the more intimately one becomes acquainted with these…

What really happened to Ernst Thälmann?

April 20, 2015

Scrapbookpages Blog

Ernst Thälmann was the leader of the KPD (Communist political party) in Germany before the start of World War II.

In a recent comment on my blog, Herbert Stolpman wrote that Ernst Thälmann was shot on the orders of Hitler at Buchenwald in 1944. The death of Ernst Thälmann is a controversial subject which deserves a blog post of its own.

In October 1999, I visited the Buchenwald Memorial Site where I saw a plaque on the wall of the crematorium, which is shown in the photo below.  The plaque hangs at the spot where Thälmann was allegedly shot on the orders of Hitler.

The day after I visited Buchenwald, I went to the Sachsenhausen Memorial Site where I learned that two of the most prominent political prisoners who were imprisoned there were the Chairman of the German Communist party, Ernst Thälmann, and the Chairman of the Social Democrat party…

Projection of the Nazi Complex – the Gunter Grass Case.

April 14, 2015

stOttilien

Guenther Grass 84-year-old social democratic activist and literature nobel prize winner published a poem last Wednesday entitled “What must be said” in the left-liberal Munich-based Süddeutsche Zeitung.  He accused Israel of planning a first nuclear strike against Iran to “extinguish the Iranian people” and noted that Israel is the principal impediment to world peace. Some German left intellectuals have voiced support for Grass’s poem. Klaus Staeck, the president of the Academy of the Arts in Berlin, defended Grass, saying on German radio that it is Grass’s “duty as a citizen” to intervene. Johano Strasser, the head of the German section of Pen, praised Grass’s criticism of Israel’s threats against Iran. Gunter Grass was over decades the  “Good German” (but not the quiet one), the perfect political correct anti-nazi role model of the sixties and the social democratic party of Germany. After he made a few years ago public, that he applied…

Geni.com Now Supports Adoption

April 9, 2015

Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter

Geni.com is a very popular genealogy web site with many features. However, it is best known for showing how people are connected to one another. The term “connected” is not restricted to blood relatives. In Geni.com’s definition, people are connected via marriage and by in-law relationships as well as by bloodlines. Now the company has added adoptees to show people as part of “the family.” I suspect most adoptees will agree with that definition.

Here is the announcement from Geni.com:

Today we are delighted to announce a long awaited new feature on Geni – adoption! We are releasing a great enhancement to the family tree that will allow you to show adoptive, foster and biological parent relationships when viewing your family on Geni.

Ismaili Gnosis (Ismailism)

"Ismailism pioneered the most daring metaphysical thought in Islam. Its voice, at once original and traditional, should be heard again today -- a task of which it seems that the young Ismā‘īlīs are aware." (Henry Corbin)
