IT looks like video games do make you violent - or at least when a shop assistants refuse a refund on one they do. Footage that went viral on Facebook shows a man losing his temper at a GameStop before trashing the entire store. The clip begins with the disgruntled customer saying he doesn't want store credit, but wants his money back. A cashier responds that even if the man were returning a brand new game he might not get his money back. He says: "There's nothing you can do about it. That's just their policy." He adds: "When I scan your receipt, it's going to see when this one was bought, and it's going to automatically give you trade credit." The customers responds: "I'm getting really p***ed off right now." The cashier seems to turn his attention to the next customer as the man walks out of the camera view. Then there is a loud noise and the customer violently pushes over a display rack laden with merchandise. The man takes his game off the counter - which the caption identifies as … [Read more...] about Shocking moment angry gamer smashes up shop when refused refund … proof video games really DO make you violent?
By Matthew Bennett Two years ago, when Donald Trump won the American presidency, with the support of Steve Bannon and the alt-right, one party moved quickly to try to position itself as Spain’s answer to that ascendent US national populism. Vox’s first attempts did not go very far beyond a few meetings, on both sides of the Atlantic, and some press statements accompanied by photos of party leader Santiago Abascal with Marine Le Pen (France, National Front), Geert Wilders (Holland, Party for Freedom) or Frauke Petry (Alternative for Germany). But there was not much substance to it. In a recent article describing that period, El Confidencial wrote that Vox was considered “a pariah among the eurosceptic right in Europe”. On Monday, Vox published a pre-campaign video of Mr. Abascal trotting around a plain somewhere in Andalusia—where regional elections will be held on December 2nd—looking manly in a more Putinesque than Trump-like manner, to … [Read more...] about ANALYSIS: Will Vox, Spain’s answer to the alt-right, ride the populist wave to its first electoral win?
Julie Hinds Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Oct 28, 2018 It's among the most famous paintings ever done by Norman Rockwell, a portrait of a little girl wearing a crisp white dress and carrying a book as she walks to school. Hate is beside her, scrawled as a racial slur on a wall splattered with red from a thrown tomato. Four federal marshals in tan and gray suits surround her, their heads cropped out of the frame. They are protecting the African-American student from the unseen crowds of white adults who gathered to taunt and harass her. The title of the painting is "The Problem We All Live With." Ruby Bridges was 6 when she became an icon for integrating an elementary school in New Orleans. Now 64, Ruby Bridges Hall devotes her life to talking to young people and fighting against the hatred that she sees on the rise in America. It's the problem well all continue to live with, even if some turn a blind eye to the … [Read more...] about A civil rights legend at 6, Ruby Bridges comes to Dearborn
On June 16, 2016, a man with a history of mental health problems and Nazi sympathies stabbed, shot, and killed British Member of Parliament Helen “Jo” Cox, a member of the Labor Party who happened to oppose the “Brexit” referendum. A week later, British voters went to the polls and chose to leave the European Union, stunning political observers and defying expectations that Cox’s assassination would provide a late boost to the “Remain” campaign.Cox’s murder was a singular event, a brutal and terrible loss that had little, if anything, to do with the politics of the moment. Yet the media, the left, and European leaders immediately pounced on her death to smear Brexit and rally support for Remain. EU Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos tweeted that Cox had been murdered for her “dedication” to the EU, and French politician Alain Juppé said she was “murdered because of her beliefs.” British … [Read more...] about Blue State Blues: Media, Democrats Exploit Tragedy to Turn Out the Vote
