Teens create new app to hold police accountable

by Maya

teensapp

As Ferguson continues to reel after Michael Brown’s death and the police threaten to shoot journalists and tear gas children, three badass teenage coders from Georgia have developed a timely mobile app to hold police accountable.

Five-O, created by siblings Ima, Asha, and Caleb Christian, allows users to detail their encounters with police officers and rate them on their professionalism. Anyone can check how their community stacks up and the information will be sent to law enforcement. “We’d like to know which regions in the US provide horrible law enforcement services as well as highlight the agencies that are highly rated by their citizens, explained senior Ima.” In addition to putting more power into the hands of citizens when interacting with law enforcement, we believe that highly rated police departments should be used as models for those that fail at providing quality law enforcement services.” 

Though it sure as hell doesn’t feel like it much of the time, the police are supposed to “protect and serve” us — all of us. Law enforcement departments across the country should be thanking these high school students for helping them see if their officers are doing their jobs. The app is available for download starting today!

Watch: Remy Ma on ‘Sway In The Morning’ (Video)

by Mikey Fresh
THANKGODYOUREHERE

remy ma looks good. i love her old raps, hope she comes up big.

I’ve always wondered what my first meal would be when coming home from prison if I ever did a real bid (granted these thoughts came to me while riding the E train back from Jamaica with a half lb. of mid-grade stuffed in my Northface). For Remy Ma, it was Popeyes and a Welches Grape. This was just one of the gems Remy dropped while doing her first Sway In The Morning interview. Her freestyle is on the way, too, so stay tuned.

In PT. 2 of our interview with Remy Ma, the rapper opened up about being in prison for 6.5 years and how she balanced motherhood while her son grew from age 7 to 14. She also talked about who she’s feeling in the rap game and why she has more of a business mindset.

Do We Need Another Iggy Azalea?

Need? Absolutely not. Could we tolerate another white female rapper—perhaps one day even ascending into liking and enjoy her music? Maybe. But please don't let it be Chanel West Coast.

Antiques Roadshow Appraised My 2008 Toshiba TV

THANKGODYOUREHERE

this is kind of funny

In June, Antiques Roadshow visited Birmingham, Alabama, my home for the last three years. I don't own a Tiffany lamp or a 19th century Chesterfield sofa. I do, though, have a flatscreen television that's ancient by consumer electronics standards. So that's what I brought to be appraised.

This Magician Uses Smartphones To Captivate a Distracted Generation

by Andrew Liszewski
THANKGODYOUREHERE

this is awesome

At one time, close-up sleight-of-hand magic relied on coins, cards, and currency, but since most tricks require an audience to pay close attention, it's hard to compete with distractions like Facebook and Twitter these days. So as the folks Cool Hunting discovered, magician Doug McKenzie decided to just incorporate them, as well as other technologies, into his routines.

27 Jul 17:04

I'm sorry to bother you, but I haven't been able to keep up with the whole time traveling people storylines (or barely any X-Men titles at all). So Mystique was pretending to be Dazzler, and she also had Charles Xavier's baby, who she then gave to Cyclops? And Cyclops didn't give the baby to the alternate future Charles? Or am I just completely off?

by brianbendis
THANKGODYOUREHERE

there is so much time travel going on in marvel right now it hurts. the xmen from teh 50s are stuck in the present fighting future mystique babies from the future. the avengers are going on a 5000 years into the future mission because kang manipulated archangel (who was apocalypse at the time)'s twin children who were mutants to do crazy stuff with thor in the past (who made a celestial killing war axe they stole and brought to the future). oh and in another avengers book the universes are crashing together and they are 'incursions' and they used teh infinity gauntlet to push the other universe away from our universe and the infinity gauntlet broke and the time gem is the only one that survived and its skipping people all over the place.

No trouble.

Mystique became pregnant with Chuck’s kid sometime before AvX, This would have been after giving up the kid she already given birth to, from Logan. I am thinking that pregnancy must have occurred during Jason Aaron’s run on Wolverine.

image

She would give birth to Xavier shortly after Chuck’s death. My interpretation is that he was aware of her pregnancy and they had some plans that included their boy. With his death, it appears to have become all too much for her. She did not give the boy to Cyclops, she gave him up to the state. He is either in a foster home now, or has been adopted. None of the X-People are aware of this.

I think the death of Charles threw her for a loop, and set her on her recent quest in nation building. Mystique can be genuinely crazy at times, but her craftiness and intelligence hides it.

That alternate future Xavier is the baby all grown up, not Charles. Charles is still dead in the future. 

image

image

Dazzler later became the SHIELD Mutant Liaison.

image

And Mystique promptly captured her, and then began infiltrating SHIELD as Dazzler. She would use the access she gained to further her agenda of becoming owner of Madripoor Island, and creating something of a pirate mutant nation there.

image

That cat is out of the bag now, and the real Dazzler is back. She has since learned she put her faith in the wrong organization, and her true loyalties are the people who have had her back for years. The X-Men.

image

Years from now, Mystique’s baby boys will meet, and start the current cycle of time travel from their end of the spectrum.

Sunday closes one of the best Newport Folk Festivals ever

by Ryan Spaulding
THANKGODYOUREHERE

valerie june is like transporting me back in time, love it.

Newport Folk coverage
by 5342 Studios & Ian Perz 
Words by Ryan Spaulding

If the first two days of Newport were about new musicians, louder play and going electric (links to our photos and observations: Friday and Saturday) then Sunday was the return to form for the festival with eyes cast towards celebrating Mavis Staples' birthday and artists with a more traditional composure for Folk. Of course there were exceptions.. Glorious exceptions..


DAWES PLAY NEW SONGS, DOMINATE NEWPORT FOLK



As a music lover and a passionate supporter of Newport Folk, I too was concerned about the way the new program would be received. After speaking with planners backstage, they were every bit as tense at certain points. And, like me, they couldn't have been any happier with the reaction of the fans this year at Newport. Sunday was all about close friends. Dawes were the set of the day for this writer. They just keep getting better and better, even performing new songs like old favorites. What's my favorite Dawes show ever? Probably this one.


THAO & THE GET DOWN STAY DOWN AMAZE -
THEY WERE THE SUN DURING THE RAIN


Thao Nguyen is just so amazing - the way she structures her songs (incorporating slide guitar, banjo, lap steel, etc) is inspired, as is her writing. The fiery performer was dressed in yellow on the Fort stage as the day's heaviest rain began to fall. The performance by her and her band, The Get Down Stay Down, was all the sun the crowd needed and they danced in their ponchos as the rain beat down upon the soil. Sun Power, Soul Power!

Gregory Alan Isakov leaves Newport Folk 2014 with thousands of new fans and admirers and he can count me among them. I really knew nothing about the man before Sunday's set at Fort Adams and you can trust I will be following up. The strength of the set was obvious almost immediately as the play ascended higher and higher. Then, I learned, that it's the man's storytelling and vocals that really won me over. Maybe my favorite new discovery at Newport this year.


AN AMAZING STORYTELLER - GREGORY ALAN ISAKOV 



I really didn't anticipate loving the Hurray For The Riff Raff set as much as I did. But there was lots to love. The band moved seamlessly from songs of lost love to a total rambler of a number. The sound was unmatched on Saturday, making this one of the most magical sets of the entire weekend. I can't wait to see them again.


HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF EFFORTLESS ENTERTAIN


With so many sets, any fan at Newport Folk knows you can't stay too long at any set if you want to see it all. That didn't keep me from parking at Valerie June's Harbor Set for essentially the whole thing. It was a soft, sensual telling of love songs and a defiant foot-down in others. This was a real standout for me on Sunday. I need to get some of her records and soon.


THERE'S SOMETHING MAGIC ABOUT VALERIE JUNE

Cotswold Wildlife Park Keeper Hand-rears The "Skunk of The Air"

by Andrew Bleiman
THANKGODYOUREHERE

very cheeky and curious she calls him

DR Frogmouth 6

This striking Tawny Frogmouth chick is being hand-reared by Bird keeper Jade Stott at Cotswold Wildlife Park. She took on the role of surrogate mother to the beautiful baby bird when, unfortunately, the breeding adults didn't prove to be the most capable of parents. To give it the greatest chance of survival, the Bird section decided to hand-rear the chick.

It is the first time Jade has hand-reared this particular species and she has dedicated the last month to raising the tiny chick at home. It was no small task as the newborn required twenty-four hour care in those precious early days and feeds every two hours. The youngster has been soley dependent on Jade for survival. The Park’s Bird section are delighted with the blossoming healthy chick, who is growing day-by-day thanks to Jade’s dedicated parenting skills. Weighing just 21 grams when it hatched on 4th June 2014, the fluffy chick now weighs 231 grams and has made quite an impression on its surrogate mother.

Jade Stott said: "Hand-rearing the Tawny Frogmouth has been a massive learning curve. Having a tiny chick absolutely dependent on you is a little daunting at first, but the rewards of seeing it grow and develop its own cheeky character are more than enough payback for the sleepless nights. I'm definitely a proud mother hen!"

Jade has named the chick Murray, but it is too early to determine the sex of the bird. Visitors can see the chick in the Park’s specialist incubation room (next to the Penguin enclosure) where it will remain for a few more weeks.

Tawny Frogmouths (Podargus strigoides) are a fascinating species but little is known about their behaviour. Professor Gisela Kaplan, who teaches animal behaviour at the University of New England in Australia, is the author of the most comprehensive single study* ever conducted about these intriguing and endearing birds. Her ten year project unearthed completely new and unexpected findings. She learnt that Tawny Frogmouths are very affectionate and pair for life. When a partner dies, the mate will stay with it for days and will grieve with a high trill for hours on end. The study also uncovered another side to these birds. Gisela describes them as “skunks of the air” as they can send out a foul smell with enormous force over a wide area, perhaps to ward off snakes and big lizards that eat their eggs and chicks. Frogmouths also scream like prowling Tomcats when distressed, fight with lightning speed and defend nest sites from reptilian predators by mobbing and spraying pungent faeces at these dangerous opponents. Even their eye colour changes when threatened by a rival. The irises of the males’ eye turn from yellow to red before they attack any male or female that attempts to enter their territory.
