Melissa Harris-Perry: 'Growing Up Black in America'

like to grow up like Martin. Joining them on the show
are Diallo McClammy and C.J.Morrison, both 7 years old,

experiences of growing up as young black men.

Bully Official Trailer #1 - Weinstein Company Movie
(2012) HD

This year, over 5 million American kids will be bullied
at school, online, on the bus, at home, through their
cell phones and on the streets of their towns, making it
the most common form of violence young people in this
country experience. The Bully Project is the first
feature documentary film to show how we've all been
affected by bullying, whether we've been victims,
perpetrators or stood silent witness. The world we
inhabit as adults begins on the playground. The Bully
Project opens on the first day of school. For the more
than 5 million kids who'll be bullied this year in the
United States, it's a day filled with more anxiety and
foreboding than excitement. As the sun rises and school
busses across the country overflow with backpacks, brass
instruments and the rambunctious sounds of raging
hormones, this is a ride into the unknown. Uploaded by

Occupy Dusseldorf

Occupy Dusseldorf was inspired by an editorial cartoon
from Brooklyn, New York based artist Mark Hurwitt to
create an imaginative street theatre performance art
protest action. They marched with hundreds of medieval
shields created out of enlargements of Hurwitt's art
translated into many languages forming a giant turtle
they call "Operation Schildkrote". Their very peaceful
political action ends by turning over the shields to
reveal the message on the other side:"We are all
Greece!". [Thanks to Judy Gorman for the link and

Open-Source Economics: Yochai Benkler on TED.com

Law professor Yochai Benkler explains how collaborative
projects like Wikipedia and Linux represent the next
stage of human organization. By disrupting traditional
economic production, copyright law and established
competition, they’re paving the way for a new set of
economic laws, where empowered individuals are put on a
level playing field with industry giants. 

Recorded July2005 in Oxford, UK.
Duration: 17:52.)
