Charismatic, poignant and an articulate ‘preacher-philosopher’, Cornel West came to the University of Sheffield yesterday to give a speech as a homage to Malcolm X who once addressed seven hundred-strong students in Sheffield just three months before he was assassinated in 1965. There wasn’t any particular theme for this talk but, nonetheless, he touched on so many issues such as the Market vs Occupy Wall St, CIA tailgating Malcolm X back then and of course, deep philosophical questions. I apologise for the sound quality and background noise. I just thought it would be nice to share this with people who could not make it. Cheers! - Shazni Hamim
Did you hear of the latest Obama scandal? Apparently the President had two marines hold umbrellas over his and the PM of Turkey’s head at a press conference….
This just goes to show how utterly asinine both the GOP and the military is in this country. Apparently it is prohibited under the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations for a male Marine to hold an umbrella during inclement weather; however, a female Marine is allowed to hold an umbrella, provided she do so only with her left hand.
So the scandal here, according to the GOP, is that Obama let a male Marine rather than a female Marine hold an umbrella over his head …
