Kareem AbdulJabbar Angered Over Misleading Political Ads

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was always more than just a basketball player. He had a mature intelligence and a head for politics, even at a young age, and today’s brand does not fit his tastes.In an article he wrote for Time.com, Abdul-Jabbar expressed his dismay at both political parties for what he called “deceit.”Abdul-Jabbar wrote:“Giving the people the freedom to elect their representation is a core American ideal that is being abused. Instead of educating Americans, the mudslinger ads just create more confusion and chaos for the voters to sift through. How are Americans to make the best decisions for themselves when both of their options spend more money and time lying about one another instead of articulating how voting for them is the right decision?”Abdul-Jabbar points out that just 16 states consider making false political statements a crime and that a federal judge in Ohio decided that criminalizing over misleading or false statements infringed on free speech.The Hall of Fame center known for the “sky hook” wrote that in Mitt Romney’s 2011 Presidential campaign, he edited a clip from President Obama’s 2008 campaign against John McCain to make it seem as if Obama said, “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.”“That was a lie,” Abdul-Jabbar wrote. “The President’s actual comment stated that ‘Senator McCain said, ‘If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.’ Subtle, yet effectively misleading people in order to steer them away from President Obama.”Abdul-Jabbar’s criticism was not limited to Republicans.“The Democrats are guilty too, as they spent nearly twice the amount of money Republicans did on advertisements that focused on convincing seniors that Republicans were trying to take away their Medicare benefits.“Lying isn’t the only tool that politicians use to skew the votes in their favor. Shorter voting hours, voter identification laws, and redistricting are different ways that politicians try to influence voter outcome. Shorter hours make it increasingly difficult for people who can’t afford to leave work to get to the polls in time. Voter I.D. laws, in theory, are to protect against the ultra-rare cases of voter fraud. Redistricting is where the district lines are redrawn in order to encircle the area that would give the candidate a favorable advantage.”He added his call to action is about “holding the men and women in public office to a higher standard. Instead of preying on the weak and disadvantaged, allow the voting process to be fair for all citizens. Sneakily silencing voters is a crime against America and the freedoms we boast so proudly.” read more

Weve seen firsthand the work of the RNLI GAA stars join forces

Image: Seb Daly/SPORTSFILE Mar 9th 2017, 12:01 AM 7 Comments THE RNLI AND GAA share a common ethos, the launch of a new partnership between the two organisations heard in Croke Park yesterday.While what they do is fundamentally different, both are community organisations that only function due to the ongoing commitment of their volunteers. Around a quarter of the 2,000 GAA clubs are within 10km of an RNLI station.Indeed, their similarities are so strong that in 1914 William Duggan and James Wickham became the first and so far only recipients of GAA medals for services outside the sport.Duggan and Wickham were Wexford men who saved 12 lives in the Fethard lifeboat disaster and were committed GAA men.Their contribution to both organisations was highlighted as the GAA and RNLI announced a major partnership aimed at reducing the number of people who lose their lives though drowning in Ireland.First-hand Lyndsey Davey in action in last year’s TG4 Ladies Senior All-Ireland Championship Final. Source: Ryan Byrne/INPHODublin footballer and three times GAA All-Star, Lyndsey Davey, has a personal reason for getting involved in the campaign. Her great uncle Michael Hayes was the skipper on the Tit Bonhomme, which sank off Glandore Harbour with the loss of five of the six crew, including Michael.The Skerries footballer also saw neighbours Ronan Browne and David Gilsenan lost in Skerries Harbour in 2011.She told TheJournal.ie at the launch that getting involved was a no-brainer.“As soon as I was approached, I was very passionate about getting involved. With the work that the RNLI and other groups put into recovering the bodies on the Tit Bonhomme, I tried to find a way to give something back.I think what’s fantastic is that the GAA and RNLI aren’t looking for anything off each other, it’s all about saving lives through drowning.Cork footballer Brian Hurley is from Castlehaven and lives close to the pier which the Tit Bonhomme sailed from.He told the launch that he still remembers that day, five years on.I woke up around ten past six with all the commotion on the pier. I remember running out to see what was going on.Within minutes, Hurley was on a trawler “to see if we could be of help”. Hurley says that he recalls the support from other GAA clubs, the community rallying around, but also the sadness in the town.Hurley says that the accident changed attitudes around Union Hall, where “everyone owns a boat”.It used to be seen to be cool or something not to wear a life jacket, but now everyone is wearing them.Both Davey and Hurley spoke of the dedication and sacrifice of RNLI volunteers, as well as the town.“The loss of Michael and his crew was a very difficult time for all the families involved,” says Davey.During the days and weeks following the sinking, the whole community of Union Hall really came together. The search and rescue efforts were relentless and the support given was incredible. I got involved in this campaign as I wanted to give something back and help create awareness around water safety and drowning. In doing so I hope we can prevent any family the pain of losing a loved one through drowning.Lifesavers Source: RNLI/YouTubeEach year an average of 28 people drown accidentally around the Irish coast, something RNLI Chief Executive Paul Boissier wants to tackle.“Drowning devastates communities, but it’s often accepted as just part of life by the water. We believe that many of these deaths are preventable and we need to work with other organisations who, like us, want to keep their communities safe.”All-Ireland winning Kilkenny hurler Jackie Tyrrell told the launch how the RNLI had given comfort to his family when he lost a cousin to drowning.Like many people in Ireland I too have lost someone close to me to drowning. So many of our clubs live and train near the water, whether on the coast on near inland rivers and lakes. We have a responsibility to help and our sport and our ethos encourage this.Antrim hurler and Cushendall native, Neil McManus has been at the fore in driving the partnership and told how an local RNLI volunteer resuscitated his father following a 2015 heart attack.The RNLI sas it will work with the GAA and their volunteers in local communities to promote the campaign and share key safety messages and advice.Read: No bull: RNLI tasked to rescue cattle which had fallen from a cliff 10,473 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Anzac sacrifice marked in Greece

first_imgAnzac Day was commemorated early in Lemnos this year, with Australia’s Deputy Chief of the Navy, Rear Admiral Michael van Balen, participating in the official commemorative event organised by the Lemnos regional government on April 7. Australia’s ambassador to Greece Jenny Bloomfield confirmed that the visit by the RAN chief is a precursor to the navy’s major presence at Lemnos in a year’s time to mark the Anzac Centenary.Rear Admiral van Balen was joined by his Greek counterparts Chief of the Hellenic Navy – Evangelos Apostolakis and Vice Chief of the Hellenic Defence Force – Vice Admiral Alexandros Theodosiou.Present alongside Ambassador Bloomfield was Regional Councillor for Lemnos, Mr Savvas Vareltzis, Mayor of Lemnos – Mr Antonis Chatzidiamantis, as well as other local dignitaries. NZ ambassador to Greece Mr Trevor Matheson – who is based in Rome, and the Canadian ambassador Mr Robert Peck also participated. Canadian nurses served in Lemnos during the Gallipoli campaign, alongside British, New Zealand and Australian medical staff.Joining the officials were secondary school students from Victoria who had been awarded the Victorian Premier’s Spirit of the Anzacs Prize. Representing the state government was Bill Sykes MP – the Nationals member for Benalla. The students also visited Gallipoli as part of their study tour. In her speech at the Lemnos wreath-laying ceremony, Ambassador Bloomfield said: “From Lemnos and Gallipoli in 1915, to the Battle of Crete in May 1941, and around the world, Australians and Greeks have fought to uphold our shared values with courage, with self-sacrifice, with mateship and with compassion. “Today, to the people of Lemnos, we express our nation’s deep appreciation. And to all those – Australians, New Zealanders, Greeks and all our friends – who sacrificed their lives so that we may preserve our way of life – their courage, their selflessness, their compassion, their sense of service and duty, inspire us to live by those ideals.”During the Lemnos commemorations Ambassador Bloomfield announced a project with Greek Australian composer Tassos Ioannidis to mark the Centenary of Anzac involving a collaboration between Australian, Greek and Turkish artists. In Athens, the Australian embassy’s Anzac Day commemoration will be held at the Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery at Alimos (Phaleron) on April 25 at 11.00 am. The commemoration is open to all.Joining dignitaries will be Greece’s Minister of National Defence, Mr Dimitris Avramopoulos. Young Australians acknowledging the duty and sacrifice of their forbears will also feature at the Athens event. Attending will be a group of school students from the Hunter Valley who will lay a wreath on behalf of WWII Battle of Greece veteran Alfred Carpenter. They met 97-year-old Mr Carpenter – who lives in Newcastle – through the ‘Adopt a Digger’ schools program.Mr Carpenter went to Greece with the 2/4 Australian Infantry Battalion in April 1941. The Greek campaign in WWII was the only time – other than WWI – that an Australian and New Zealand Army Corp (ANZAC) was officially formed. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Un virus responsable de la mort de millions dabeilles

first_imgUn virus responsable de la mort de millions d’abeillesSelon une étude publiée hier aux Etats-Unis, un virus très contagieux transmis par la mite parasite “Varroa” contribuerait à la propagation et probablement à la mort de millions d’abeilles dans le monde.Le mystère de l’hécatombe des abeilles serait-il enfin élucidé ? Alors que les apiculteurs accusent déjà les pesticides de décimer ces insectes, une autre menace importante planerait également sur ces derniers. Des travaux de chercheurs britanniques et américains tout juste rendus publics expliquent qu’un virus très contagieux transmis par la mite parasite “Varroa” pourraient être responsable de la mort de plusieurs millions d’abeilles à travers le monde. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Cette mite, qui se nourrit du sang des abeilles au stade larvaire ou adulte, perce leur peau et peut déformer leurs ailes, bien que la plupart des abeilles infectées ne présente aucun signe morphologique. Menée à Hawaii par des chercheurs de l’Université de Sheffield (GB), de la Marine Biological Association et de l’Université de Hawaii, l’étude montre que ce pathogène viral a accru sa fréquence de 10 à 100% parmi les abeilles dans les ruches au cours des dernières années. Les scientifiques ont également constaté une augmentation d’un million de fois du nombre de particules du virus infectant les abeilles entre elles.Cette contamination a finalement conduit à l’émergence d’une seule souche très virulente de ce pathogène. Ce phénomène épidémique pourrait donc expliquer le fameux et toujours mystérieux “colony collapse disorder” (CCD) observé depuis 2005, marqué par la disparition soudaine dans les ruches de millions d’abeilles adultes. D’autant que même une fois que les mites Varroa (mesurant 1,5 millimètre sur 1 millimètre) vivant sur la peau des abeilles, s’y reproduisant et se nourrissant de leur sang, ont été retirées, le virus reste présent dans le corps des butineuses.Ainsi, la mite faciliterait la dissémination du virus en agissant comme un réservoir viral et un incubateur pour le virus. La mite infecterait les abeilles lorsqu’elle se nourrit de leur sang et créerait ainsi une nouvelle voie de transmission en contournant le système immunitaire de l’abeille, précisent ces chercheurs cités par l’AFP. Par la suite, la souche virale passerait naturellement d’une abeille à une autre via leur nourriture ou en période de reproduction décimant par là-même des colonies entières.Le 8 juin 2012 à 11:35 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

All eyes on Stamford Bridge as Premier League returns

first_imgAttention turns to Stamford Bridge this weekend, where Chelsea will be hosting under-fire manager Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United side in the Premier League.United manager Jose Mourinho’s “it’s not about me” comment after his team’s exciting comeback win over Newcastle United last time out is unlikely to be heeded on Saturday when he returns to Chelsea, according to Reuters.The former Inter Milan manager’s words of appreciation after United fans chanted his after their 3-2 victory over Rafael Benitez’s side may have reflected a weariness at the constant focus on his position at Old Trafford but the spotlight will unavoidably be on the Portuguese again.The manner of his team’s win, with three goals in the final 20 minutes of all-out attacking football, has raised the question of whether he will take the shackles off when they travel to London to face Chelsea.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea are unbeaten, level on points with champions Manchester City and challengers Liverpool and with their Belgian superstar Eden Hazard in a scintillating form are clear favourites for the game on Saturday.United are already seven points behind the league leaders after losses to Brighton & Hove Albion, West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur at home and Mourinho will be keen to ensure they avoid defeat to the Blues, despite their poor record their recent poor record at the Bridge.Chelsea have not lost at home to United in the last six years, losing just two of the 16 meetings between the two since then and Mourinho has lost four of his six games against his former club since taking over at United.last_img read more

Malala visits Pakistan first time since attack

first_imgNobel Peace Prize laureate Yousafzai attends a news conference in Oslo. Reuters file photoNobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai returned to Pakistan on Thursday, officials said, in her first visit to her native country since she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman six years ago for advocating education for girls.Malala is widely respected internationally for her bravery and activism, but opinion is divided in Pakistan where some conservatives view her as a Western agent on a mission to shame her country.Malala is expected to meet with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi during the four-day trip but further details have been “kept secret in view of the sensitivity surrounding the visit,” a government official said.Accompanied by her parents, the 20-year-old student was escorted through Islamabad’s Benazir Bhutto International Airport under tight security, according to photographs broadcast on local television.Malala became a global symbol for human rights after a gunman boarded her school bus in the Swat valley on October 9, 2012, asked “Who is Malala?” and shot her.She was treated for her injuries in the British city of Birmingham, where she also completed her schooling.The youngest ever winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, she has continued to be a vocal advocate for girls’ education while pursuing her studies at Oxford University.Many Pakistanis took to Twitter to express delight that the campaigner had returned for the visit, despite ongoing security fears.“I welcome #MalalaYousafzai the brave and resilient daughter of Pakistan back to her country,” politician Syed Ali Raza Abidi wrote.But she faces intense criticism from some Pakistanis, including hardline Islamists as well as members of the conservative middle class who support education for girls but object to airing the country’s problems abroad.One leading Pakistani journalist, Hamid Mir, issued a plea for opposition politicians and commentators to exercise restraint when talking about the visit.“International media is highly focused on her return and this (bad language) will damage Pakistan’s image,” he said.‘Change the world’Malala began her campaign aged just 11, when she started writing a blog—under a pseudonym—for the BBC’s Urdu service in 2009 about life under the Taliban in Swat, where they were banning girls’ education.In 2007 the Islamist militants had taken over the area, which Malala affectionately called “My Swat”, and imposed a brutal, bloody rule.Opponents were murdered, people were publicly flogged for supposed breaches of sharia law, women were banned from going to market, and girls were stopped from going to school.But it was only after the shooting, and a subsequent near-miraculous recovery, that she became a truly global figure.She opened a Twitter account on her last day of school in July 2017 and now has more than a million followers.“I know that millions of girls around the world are out of school and may never get the opportunity to complete their education,” Malala wrote at the time.During a recent appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the feminist campaigner urged women to “change the world” without waiting for the help of men.“We won’t ask men to change the world, we’re going to do it ourselves,” Malala said.“We’re going to stand up for ourselves, we’re going to raise our voices and we’re going to change the world.”last_img read more

Southern Baptist executive experts say churches should address abuse of adults

Banks AMBankstw Newscenter_img Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — A Southern Baptist publishing executive recently revealed that she was a victim of alleged abuse for more than a decade from another Baptist leader.In an online statement posted Friday (March 8), Jennifer Lyell, director of the books ministry at LifeWay Christian Resources, alleged that she was the victim of a now-resigned professor at the flagship seminary of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination.The alleged sexual misconduct and abuse of power started during a mission trip when Lyell was a seminary student and continued for years. She said that she feared coming forward out of concern that revealing what happened would cause “collateral damage.”“That collateral damage was the reason that the abuse had continued for so long,” she wrote. “The reason that a professor was able to continue grooming and taking advantage of his student was because I became like part of his family.”Jennifer Lyell. Photo via TwitterAfter coming forward last year to her boss and the president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., she said, both took swift action to address her allegations and to provide care for her. Her alleged abuser resigned from the seminary as well as from a nonprofit ministry he had founded and from a trustee role with the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board.Lyell said she experienced “the best of what advocates of sexual abuse response reform are calling for in the Southern Baptist Convention.” Still, she said that churches need to do more to address abuse.Lyell discussed the issue in a recent podcast released by another SBC agency, saying she thinks there are key factors churches should understand about sex abuse.“I’m going to say two things that the church needs to realize and understand and that is, first of all, that sexual abuse does not only happen to children,” she told Trillia Newbell, host of the “Better Together” podcast produced by the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. “And second, is that sexual assault is not only rape.”As the SBC confronts allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct in its ranks, leaders of some of its affiliated organizations as well as other denominations are seeking to educate clergy and other staffers about appropriate boundaries as they relate to adults in their congregations, classrooms and counseling sessions.RELATED: Baptists who split from Southern Baptist Convention have own sex abuse policiesSouthern Baptist Theological Seminary President R. Albert Mohler Jr. confirmed that Lyell spoke to him in May 2018 about her allegations of inappropriate sexual contact and abuse of power in a relationship with David Sills, then-professor of missions and cultural anthropology. Mohler also affirmed Lyell for being “right and courageous” in speaking up about the “heartbreaking situation” and making him aware of it.“We followed the best procedures available and responded to Jennifer by arranging a conversation with the professor at the earliest opportunity,” Mohler told Religion News Service on Tuesday. “He was out of the country so within hours of his return we had a face-to-face conversation and as a result of that conversation he was no longer on the faculty of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.”The lead and executive pastors of a Louisville church where Sills was a member told RNS that Sills also is no longer affiliated with it.“Although he was not on church staff, upon hearing of these allegations concerning David Sills, our church acted swiftly by publicly condemning his behavior and by removing him from any position of service,” said Bill Cook and Jeff Elieff. “He is no longer a member of Ninth and O Baptist Church.”Sills also resigned last year as president of Reaching and Teaching International Ministries, a Louisville-based missions group he had founded. Attempts by RNS to reach Sills were unsuccessful.R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. RNS photo by Adelle M. BanksAsked if he thought Sills should be a professor elsewhere or otherwise involved in ministry, Mohler said: “I would say that the behavior indicated in this charge is clearly incompatible with Christian ministry.”Mohler said his institution has “extremely clear policies” about boundaries between faculty and seminarians.“The secular world looks at negotiating all the boundaries,” he said. “Our boundaries are that we uphold a biblical standard of sexual morality, a biblical definition of marriage, and we do not allow for any kind of romantic, much less sexual, relationship between faculty and students, period.”Mohler said that perspective is taught in classes on ethics and pastoral practice, and students and faculty are trained on how to prevent and respond to sex abuse allegations. Late last year, the seminary appointed its first “women’s support coordinator” to receive complaints about sexual harassment or other misconduct.Some faith groups have specific policies that ban sexual or romantic relationships between clergy and congregation members as an abuse of power. Others do not address the topic, experts say.RELATED: Baptists who split from Southern Baptist Convention have own sex abuse policiesMargo Stone, executive director, Midwest Ministry Development Service. Photo courtesy of Midwest Ministry Development ServiceMargo M.R. Stone, executive director of the Midwest Ministry Development Service near Chicago, said the Catholic Church and major Protestant denominations have policies about sexual misconduct that can be adapted by regional organizations such as dioceses, presbyteries and synods. Most also require periodic attendance at a “boundaries workshop.”But autonomous and nondenominational congregations may or may not have them. And rules about consensual relationships also will vary.“The point that we make in talking with pastors and denominations is that once a personal relationship begins, the pastoral relationship is lost, i.e., one cannot pastor and date the same person,” said Stone, a clinical psychologist whose office is part of the Ministry Development Network that serves churches from the Rocky Mountains to West Virginia.  “It behooves the pastor to ensure that the member’s spiritual needs are met through another pastor or group,” said Stone, whose organization often works with pastors who are being disciplined for misconduct.Stone said ministers always need to be aware that “there is an inherent power differential between pastor and parishioner” and it’s their responsibility to not abuse that power.“Personal needs should be met in personal relationships, not pastoral relationships,” she said.Thomas Plante, an expert on clergy sex offenders, said review boards addressing Catholic sex abuse policies have concentrated on children and “vulnerable adults,” such as the elderly and people with cognitive disabilities. But that has changed in the wake of charges against now-defrocked Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, whom Vatican officials found guilty of sexual crimes against adults as well as minors.“That’s kind of exploded, I think, in the past six months,” said Plante, a former vice chair of the U.S. Catholic bishops’ national review board. “Now we’re saying: What about all adults where you have any kind of power or control or authority?”Thomas Plante speaks during a Clergy Abuse Conference at Santa Clara University on May 11, 2012. Photo by Joanne Lee/Santa Clara UniversityBut the Santa Clara University psychology professor said even as boundary issues related to adults are given more attention, there can be particular dilemmas for clergy that professionals like psychologists and psychiatrists do not often face.“The clerics are out there in the real world with real people and they’re at the bedside, they’re having dinner at their homes, they’re visiting them in jail or in hospitals,” said Plante, past president of the American Psychological Association’s Society for the Psychology of Religion and Spirituality.“It’s a balancing act because on one hand you want people to be able to do ministry, but you want to make sure they do it in such a way that they avoid potential exploitative dual relationships.”RELATED: Southern Baptist executive group urges caution before investigating church abuseThe board of directors of the National Association of Evangelicals adopted a resolution at its March 7 meeting saying it “laments the tragic violation of trust by ministers of the gospel who have sexually abused church members, and particularly children.”The organization reiterated its pastoral code of ethics and called for investigations “without defensiveness,” “decisive disciplinary action” for corroborated violations and support for those affected by abuse.The NAE also hailed those who speak up about sexual abuse.“Whistleblowers who bring these violations to light perform an important service to the church and to our society,” it said.“Many evangelical churches and ministries already have systems in place addressing sexual misconduct and abuse,” NAE President Leith Anderson said in a Tuesday statement, “but this resolution reminds us to do all we can to prevent these horrors and to protect and support victims.”Lyell declined an interview with RNS. But she said in an email message that she was 26 when Sills first abused her and 38 when the relationship and the alleged abuse ended. In her statement, she said more adults need to have their voices heard.“There are plenty of reasons to stay silent in a situation such as this,” said Lyell, now 41. “But we must not be silent. We must clearly tell the truth so that our churches and ministries are safe and as pure as they can be.” Buttigieg walks fine line in courting religious left August 29, 2019 By: Adelle M.

Super Mario 64 is Now Playable Online Thanks to Modders

first_imgIt’s things like this that make you appreciate the modding community. Super Mario 64 has always been a single player experience. Now, a group of fans have modded the Nintendo 64 classic to make it playable online.This Mario 64 online mod was created by Kaze Emanuar, Melonspeedruns, and Marshivolt. With the mod, users can get together online and play a variety of different activities. These include racing, fighting, and even hide-and-seek. Characters like WaLuigi, Princess Peach, Toad, and of course, Mario, are all playable. Best of all, each plays very differently from one another. As you would expect, this is all extremely chaotic — but it sure looks like a lot of fun.The original Mario 64 never received a proper PC port. This version is built on a Super Mario 64 ROM. Getting this particular mod to run takes a bit of technical know-how. Smartly, the modders have released an instructional video that details the process of getting the mod to work with one’s Mario 64 ROM. Some PC gamers are used to this sort of stuff, but it might be a bit above the heads of others.AdChoices广告A mainline Mario game with 24 playable characters hasn’t been done before. As weird as the concept is, it kind of works in its own strange way. Obviously, this mod isn’t something Nintendo would ever endorse. At the same time, it also has a very Nintendo-ish type of vibe given its absurdity. I don’t see Nintendo ever implementing anything like this in a Mario game. If they did, I doubt they would ever give these modders credit for inspiring such a mode. Still, it is fun to see how die-hard fans bring new life into old classics.If you want to try his mod out for yourself, two download sources are available in the video’s description.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
