    A federal appeals court will reconsider a decision to order YouTube to take down an anti-Muslim film clip that sparked violence in the Middle East and death threats to the actors from those who considered it blasphemous to the Prophet Muhammad. . . . . . Google is supported in its appeal by an unusual alliance that includes filmmakers, Internet rivals such as Yahoo and prominent news media companies such as The New York Times that don't want the court to infringe on First Amendment rights.

    What do abortionists truly believe about the humanity of preborn children, and what do they admit about the violent late-term abortion procedures they perform when they do not realize the cameras are rolling? Live Action‘s “What is Human?” undercover investigation probes America’s late-term abortion industry, and reveals chilling admissions from abortionists on the humanity of children in the womb. The video, which has garnered millions of views on Facebook and over 60,000 views on YouTube, exposes the violent and inhumane nature of late-term abortion procedures that occur daily in abortion facilities. “What is Human?” details the willingness of abortionists to...

    Examiner ^ | 12/7/2014
    The father of video games, Ralph H. Baer, has passed away at age 92. He came to rest in his New Hampshire home on the night of Saturday, Dec. 6 according to Wikipedia and a Facebook post by video game historian Leonard Herman, a friend of Baer. Dubbed the "Thomas Edison of the home TV game" by Popular Electronics Magazine in 1980, Baer's Odyssey game system was the first home video game system. The patent for the idea was filed on August 10, 1970 and the system was released by Magnavox in 1972.

    f all the Jonathan Gruber videos released so far, this one could be the most damaging. Revealed on Tuesday's Greta Van Susteren program on Fox News, the latest blockbuster has the Obamacare architect explaining if your state doesn't set up an exchange, its residents aren't eligible for tax credits, precisely the opposite of what the Administration is arguing before the Supreme Court. The question before the Supreme Court is whether the language of the Affordable Care Act restricts the premium subsidies (in the form of tax credits) to residents buying insurance from a state-run exchange, and prohibits the credits on...

    He grins, he fumes, he fights — and through it all, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un dances his way in and out of preposterous situations. That's the premise of a video that has become popular in China and reportedly sparked a protest from North Korea. Citing "a source in China," the Chosun Ilbo reports that "the North feels the clip, which shows Kim dancing and Kung-Fu fighting, 'seriously compromises Kim's dignity and authority.'"

    Millions of YouTube viewers have been captivated by the 'Syrian hero boy' who manages to rescue a little girl while under gunfire. Now a group of Norwegian filmmakers have told BBC Trending they are behind it. They say it was filmed on location in Malta this summer with the intention of being presented as real. Lars Klevberg, a 34-year-old film director based in Oslo, wrote a script after watching news coverage of the conflict in Syria. He says he deliberately presented the film as reality in order to generate a discussion about children in conflict zones.

    The Republican National Committee released a new video Friday to promote #Grubering. The hashtag summarizes the deceptive strategy used by Obama administration to get Obamacare passed. The law’s architect Jonathan Gruber called the strategy “a very clever, basic exploitation of the lack of the American economic understanding of the American voter.” A montage of various Democratic leaders praising Gruber is paired with as well a litany of transparency claims. “Obama and Democrats promised to be transparent,” the ad says. “They lied to pass it, help us repeal it.”

Here, with the help of a tremendous singer and a first-rate recording engineer, is the result: It Matters I encourage readers (and now, viewers) to show “It Matters” to people who don’t think their vote matters, and persuade them to get out and vote.

    In this footage from last spring, a Free Syrian Army rebel throws a grenade down the barrel of a regime T-72 tank — not once but twice. Why didn’t the tank move after the first attack? Was the crew knocked out? Was the tank even manned? Seems like it was abandoned. But then why blow it up instead of capturing it? Maybe the guy who comes on camera at the end is complaining that they should have just taken the tank. In any case the second grenade gets the job done for real. And imagine if U.S. troops stood around...

So it’s nothing personal when I write that I don’t get much occasion to write about Frampton, he’s just mostly before my time. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still things we can learn from the...

    I have long had a love/hate relationship with pop music. Growing up as an aspiring jazz pianist, I wasn’t interested in listening to anything that might appeal to those that I deemed to possess a less than refined palette of musical taste. This willful ignorance continued for some time; it was not until I began making YouTube videos (and subsequently receiving requests for modern pop songs) that I decided to drop my preconceived notions and examine contemporary pop with an open mind. What I found is that, despite my initial aversion to the stuff I was hearing, I was unable...

    Robin Williams, the famed comedian and actor, died on Monday at age 63. He had a remarkable career, and was one of the funniest people of all time. But beyond his career of making people laugh — one of my favorites being his role as Vietnam-era radio personality Adrian Cronauer — his response in 2007 to troops in Kuwait who basically turned their back on him is one worth remembering. Williams was there for a USO tour for the soldiers, most of whom were either headed to Iraq or supporting combat troops already there. In the middle of a bit,...

Baghdadi has been appointed caliph by the jihadist group, which has seized large swathes of Iraq and Syria. The video appears to have been filmed on Friday during a sermon at the al-Nouri Mosque in Mosul, northern Iraq. It surfaced on Saturday amid reports that he had been killed or wounded in an Iraqi air raid. It was not clear when the attack was supposed to have taken place. In the sermon, at Mosul's most famous landmark, Baghdadi...

    (Videos) When sound hits an object, it causes small vibrations of the object’s surface. We show how, using only high-speed video of the object, we can extract those minute vibrations and partially recover the sound that produced them, allowing us to turn everyday objects—a glass of water, a potted plant, a box of tissues, or a bag of chips—into visual microphones. We recover sounds from highspeed footage of a variety of objects with different properties, and use both real and simulated data to examine some of the factors that affect our ability to visually recover sound. We evaluate the quality...
