    ABC News ^ | 12/9/2019 | FRANK JORDANS and ARITZ PARRA
    With dozens of cameras pointing at her across a room full of reporters, celebrity teen environmentalist Greta Thunberg had an unexpected message: Look the other way. “Our stories have been told over and over again,” the 16-year-old Swede said, explaining why she and prominent German activist Luisa Neubauer would be handing over the stage at the U.N. climate meeting in Madrid to other young activists. “It’s really about them,” Thunberg added of the young activists from developing countries already facing the effects of climate change, including violent storms, droughts and rising sea levels. “We talk about our future, they talk...

    “I don’t want a lot for Christmas” but for some, the one thing they do want is to hear the song again! A poll across the UK has found that the most annoying Christmas song out there isn’t “Jingle Bells” or “Dominick the Donkey” or even “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer” but rather Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You," Variety reported. Huawei, a mobile phone company, conducted the survey. The Carey Christmas Classic may be the number one most annoying, but some other songs you hear on constant rotation on the radio also made the...
  • Russia Invites Climate Activist Greta Thunberg to Speak in Parliament

    Moscow Times ^ | Oct 2019
    Russia’s parliament has invited Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg to address young Russians concerned about the environment. The 16-year-old schoolgirl has catalyzed global school strikes and inspired Russia's nascent climate protest movement. Thunberg’s impassioned speech at the United Nations General Assembly last week sparked a fierce backlash in Russian society. “I invite you to give a speech to Russian youth in the State Duma on any date convenient for you,” lawmaker Vasily Vlasov wrote to Thunberg, according to excerpts of his letter published by the state-run RIA Novosti news agency Tuesday. Vlasov, 24, a senior member of the Duma’s Natural...

    It takes forever to open, probably because it has too many bells and whistles. Now something called "Tasks" has opened and is blocking my inbox and won't go away no matter how many million times I click on the X. Even turning it off didn't help. They should also drop all the little suggestions. Please tell me there's a way to go back to the old version!

    A Dutch woman has seen her request for Swiss citizenship refused for the second time by local residents who object to her media campaigning against cowbells and other Swiss traditions. A vegan and supporter of animal rights, she gained a reputation in her community of Gipf-Oberfrick, in the canton of Aargau, after campaigning against cowbells, claiming they were damaging to cows’ health.

    City News Toronto ^ | Shalini Roy
    We asked you what you thought of Christmas music and while most of you love it – early appearances not withstanding – there are a few songs that just get under your skin. Here are the tunes that iVillage.ca readers voted as the worst (read: most annoying) Christmas songs ever. 10. Run, Rudolph, Run This rockabilly jingle is a bluesy take on Christmas. “Run, run, Rudolph, whizzin’ like a merry-go-round,” croons Chuck Berry, as we imagine frenzied shoppers running in all directions to satisfy Christmas desires. 9. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus This song might be perceived as being...

    I used to like the PJ Media site a lot. But the last couple of weeks, every time I go to a new page I get a @#&*!@&! popup, wanting me to subscribe to their service which will fill up my mailbox with stuff I don't want.The popup has a button that says "I've already subscribed" which leads me to believe that even if I give them my email address it won't stop. I've tried every option I can find in Firefox and Adblocker to make this bloody thing stop showing up. And I've "signed up" using a throwaway address...

    She’s an above-average fundraiser (see the graph towards the bottom of the page here), an assiduously on-message interviewee, a rep from a crucial swing state, and of course a woman, which may help Democrats marginally with a key demographic. Oh, and she’s also a “heroine” to Planned Parenthood, natch. Congrats, Debbie. Now for your first lesson on messaging. Repeat after me: “Republicans want to kill grandma.” She would be the first woman to serve as the permanent head of the committee in a presidential election year, party officials said. At least two women have served short stints in the position,...

    A. So that even the blind could hate them. This is one of my favourite jokes from a new book published today called 365 Ways To Drive A Liberal Crazy. Modesty forbids me from naming the author but if you buy it in sufficient quantities I can offer you his cast-iron guarantee that not a penny of the proceeds will be spent on anything remotely worthy or eco-friendly. Perhaps they will go towards rescuing one of his children from the state education system, so that one day they can look down on David Cameron’s kids and despise them for not

    Blog Police Creeps Are George Soros Plants For at least a month now a crew of three or four screen names here on Free Republic have been used to spam post after post all across the board. They have decided that they are Free Republic's police, they think they speak for the whole board, and have been attempting to drive people off this site. But are they real FReepers? Or are they something else? It is pretty clear that they are being paid to do this by a George Soros-styled, left wing organization to spam FR, attack posters, and attempt...

    Over the last few weeks I have been received up to 5 calls a day from these fraudsters from the "Prolixus" people. They call claiming to be from the "Prolixus Identity Protection Center" and they claim that I contacted them earlier for a call back. Well the problem is their product is a "male enhancement" product and I am female. This doesn't seem to stop them from calling me for what seems like ALL of the time. I have on several occasions demanded to talk to a supervisor who then assured me I would be taken off of their list...
