Burmese monk Wirathu is on the cover of July 2013 Time Maganzine. Wirathu has been leading a plot to ethnically cleanse the Rohingya people. The Rohingya people are Muslims. He has compared Muslims to “African carp” and has described them as “quick breeding and violent.” His speeches have been blamed for the rise of violence against the Rohingya people. In his recent sermon, he described the reported massacre of schoolchildren and other Muslim inhabitants in the central city of Meiktila in March, documented by a human rights group, as “a show of strength”
The Muslims are suffering. Please keep them in your duas(prayers).
Find someone who understands your silence.
Most of the advice I get tends to be forgotten, but one thing I’ve always remembered is when someone told me that you know if a person is a friend if you can share a comfortable silence with them. I’ve noticed since then how true it is.
I agree with this quote too…it’s nice to have friends as defined as above, but even better are those few who understand what the silence means, they know what you’re thinking.
Sir David Attenborough nature documentary coming to Oculus Rift.
"Conquest of the Skies" is currently being shot in Borneo using a special camera rig that allows a 360 degree view of the scenes when viewed with the Oculus Rift headset.
Although there’s no firm release date for the headset, it’s thought to be likely to be available to the public as soon at late 2014, with Atlantic Productions hoping their documentary will be the first major wildlife production to be made available via the new tech.
One of the things that excites the company, Morris explained, is that there are no rules yet as to what a non-fiction experience on a totally new creative platform should be like. He compared audience experiences of using the Rift to the early reactions of cinema-goers attending the Lumière brothers’ famous The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station in the late 1800s.
“In terms of the creative challenge, we look at this as being comparable to the beginning of the film industry,” he said.
