“In a clear sign they are preparing for the possibility of a yes vote and emergency recall of parliament, Commons officials have sent journalists a briefing note detailing the last times the House of Commons was recalled on a Saturday. The last Saturday sitting was on 3 April 1982, the day after the Falklands war began. The previous three dates were: 3 November 1956 - Suez Crisis 30 July 1949 - Summer adjournment debates – last sitting of the summer 2 September 1939 - Outbreak of World War II That perhaps gives some sense of the scale of the constitutional crisis for the UK if Scotland does vote to leave.

Apple Watch

Well, here it is. After much speculation, Apple’s wearable. Calling it a watch is kind of a misnomer as it does more than tell time. Tim Cook even called it “a health and fitness” device on stage. It also has Siri built in so you can send messages. A crazy touch screen that basically has two clicking options. From The Verge:

The Apple Watch has a built-in gyroscope, accelerometer, a heart rate sensor, and a Taptic Engine for input sensing. The Apple Watch can recognize the difference between a tap and a press, offering another subtle way to make different inputs without needing additional input points or buttons. Calling the harder press Force Touch, Apple is essentially defining the smartwatch equivalent of the right-click on a mouse. The Apple Watch also uses inductive wireless charging.


The biggest battery saving thing is that the watch turns on the display when you raise your wrist. No talk of battery life yet, but they did talk price: it’s going to be $349 and will go on sale, early next year

I did not want to like it, but it looks pretty cool…

The FCC should be given a time-out button, so every time a network talking head says something this stupid (or moreso) the FCC can hit the button and the network goes off the air for 5 minutes.

Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.

this is why I wanted to be a war journalist. how powerful is this segment. why did it not make it on the news?

Because Western/US media supports Israel’s war crimes, just as the US funds and arms Israel’s ethnocidal regime.

In case anyone else is like me and didn’t get the Diana Prince joke at first and was super confused (Wonder Woman) and is curious to know who she is, she appears to be Huwaida Arraf (first link to her Twitter, second to her Wikipedia page).

thank you for the links and correct info, leggy
