We don’t need new laws for Twitter trolls

yo.

something different today coming from the guardian to all you trollz out there.

A spokesman for the Police Federation, Steve Evans, told Today: “The sheer scale of it is huge. Police resources are stretched almost to breaking point, so if we started trying to investigate every instance of stupidity within Twitter, then we would be really pushed.”

The body representing Britain’s chief police officers has rejected calls for new laws to govern how the police deal with the abuse of Twitter, saying that problems may eventually be resolved by the microblogging website itself.

The intervention by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) comes amid a debate over the policing of Twitter following a number of recent cases, including the arrest of a teenager in connection with tweets directed at Olympic diver Tom Daley and the jailing of a student for inciting racial hatred by tweeting about the footballer Fabrice Muamba.

Stuart Hyde, the chief constable of Cumbria, who speaks on e-crime for Acpo, said that it was right for police to intervene where individuals’ lives were being made a misery by Twitter “trolls”, but insisted that it was important for forces to take a “common sense” approach.

Asked if new laws were needed, Hyde told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “No, I think we have got quite a lot of legislation, dating back to the Malicious Communications Acts of 1998 and 2003. There is a lot there that helps us and gives us the power to do stuff.

SAMSARA Theatrical Trailer

SAMSARA will be in theaters across the USA August 24th.

ABOUT SAMSARA:

Prepare yourself for an unparalleled sensory experience. SAMSARA reunites director Ron Fricke and producer Mark Magidson, whose award-winning films BARAKA and CHRONOS were acclaimed for combining visual and musical artistry.

SAMSARA is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever turning wheel of life” and is the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, SAMSARA transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, SAMSARA subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary, instead encouraging our own inner interpretations inspired by images and music that infuses the ancient with the modern.

Expanding on the themes they developed in BARAKA (1992) and CHRONOS (1985), SAMSARA explores the wonders of our world from the mundane to the miraculous, looking into the unfathomable reaches of man’s spirituality and the human experience. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, SAMSARA takes the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation. Through powerful images, the film illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet.

Inside Coney Island’s Decrepit Movie Palace

Two years ago the Shore Theater in Coney Island (formally the Loew’s Coney Island) was declared an historic landmark. Well, its exterior was. The inside of the former vaudeville and movie palace was left to fend to itself, as it has been doing since the 1970s. Despite the theater’s dominating presence in Coney Island’s amusement area, the interior has been pretty much lost to the public. Until now.

Photographer Matt Lambros of After The Final Curtain recently got into the theater and has just posted his pictures online: the Renaissance revival space is, like so many old theaters, truly stunning even in its decrepitude. The architects at Reilly & Hall knew what they were doing when they designed the space in the 1920s (the theater opened June 17, 1925 and after many iterations closed for good in March of 1973).

trial and error

I hate those moments when i mess up displacement maps or the poly count of my model f*cks everything up. Apparently this does not seem to bother everyone since from tweaking around masterpieces can emerge.lol

Thanks to everyone at ILoveDust for making it happen!
