    1. I have often wondered about where you are on a mileage run if you never “really” enter a country as well as pre-clearance countries i.e. that you re-enter the USA before you get to the USA. If you have ~10 minutes today I think you will enjoy the clip as much a I did.

      This is a fascinating video!

    1. If you believe in equality

      I chose this video because it gives you the opportunity to see Emma's facial expressions during a part of the speech and also get a look at her body language and facial expressions.

    1. Trevor Noah had historian Timothy Snyder on to “The Daily Show” this week to discuss his book On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century.

    1. Other smartwatches force you into nightly charging.

      Honestly, this has been a major point for me not to go with Apple Watch (even before knowing about the Pebble 2+ Heart Rate). Such small things but smart alarms and sleep tracking really do help me quite a bit.

    1. In terms of hardware, before Apple Watch debuted in 2014, there were a lot of rumors about the wearable including a multitude of health sensors that could track things like blood glucose or blood oxygen.

      A lot of these rumours appeared on 9to5mac, of course…

    1. I look at my sex, my troubling sex, and wonder · how it can be redeemed, how I can save it from the knife. The jour-ney to the grave is already begun, the journey to corruption is, al-ways, already, half over. Yet, the key to my salvation, which cannot save my body, is hidden in my flesh.

      From this quote we can see the outcome of all the guilt and shame David felt for having homosexual relations. David believes that he is going to die due to the nonredeemable actions he's done. His journey to death has already begun due to this as well. I think that the societal judgments of homosexuality caused David to have negative thoughts about his life and body in the end. When he was with Hella he could push it aside but now that he is alone he's faced with the harshness of his reality. That how he's been living his life is 'wrong'.

    2. The morning weighs on my shoulders with the dreadful weight of hope an4 I take the blue envelope which Jacques has sent me and tear it sl6wly into many pieces, watching them . .. . I dance in the wind, watchiμg the wind carry them away. Yet, as I turn and begin walking tovyard the waiting people, the wind blows some of them back on me. ]

      Reading this last paragraph, it seems that not even David knows what will happen next in his life. The idea of having hope that something positive will happen in his life now. Or Giovanni won't be executed is weighing him down because even he knows that isn't realistic. Since the ending is so ambiguous I personally took David tearing the envelope Jacques sent him slowly as him trying to start over, but when he threw it in the wind as he was walking away the wind blows it back to him. Making me believe that even though he wants to start over and forget what has happened he won't be able to move forward because something in his past will keep bringing him down. I also believe that the reason why Baldwin made the ending so ambiguous is because during that time maybe he didn’t know what to do next or how to move on. It was said that Giovanni’s room was based off of actual events that happened to Baldwin before he starting writing this book. Baldwin was in a love affair with a man named Lucien Happersberger who ended up marrying a women and that’s why the book is dedicated to Lucien.

      I tagged an article where Baldwin talks about Giovanni's Room and what it means to him as well as a very short clip of an interview with Baldwin.

    1. Educators

      Just got to think about our roles, in view of annotation. Using “curation” as a term for collecting URLs sounds like usurping the title of “curator”. But there’s something to be said about the role involved. From the whole “guide on the side” angle to the issue with finding appropriate resources based on a wealth of expertise.
