Hulu add $12 plan, finally gets rid of commercials

 

As for why it took so long, Hulu explains that it simply was difficult for the company to get the appropriate rights. So difficult, in fact, that it couldn’t secure ad-free playback for seven shows: ‘New Girl,’ ‘Scandal,’ ‘How to Get Away With Murder,’ ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Once Upon a Time,’ ‘Agents of Shield’ and ‘Grimm.’

However, these shows will only show a 15 second commercial before the begin and 30 second one afterwards, so it’s still better than a bunch of ads in the middle of the show.

Prejudice – Allow +Tim Minchin to explain prejudice to you

Tim concentrates on the inherent wrongness of subjugating a group of people based only on their shared characteristics.

"Only a ginger can call another ginger, ginger" – In case you don't get it by the time the song is over, he's a ginger (that's the joke part), ginger is an anagram for nigger. Words have power… be careful how you use them.

Islam may have a problem



Carbon-Dated Qur’an May Be Older Than Muhammad, Challenging Islam’s Most Basic Tenets

Carbon-Dated Qur’an May Be Older Than Muhammad, Challenging Islam’s Most Basic Tenets

And it's not just that the paper has been carbon dated mean it's from Mohammed’s childhood, or possibly even before his birth, it's that even THAT flies in the face of Muslim traditional belief about the book. the problem is much bigger than it appears. David Thomas of the University of Birmingham explains:
"According to Muslim tradition, the Prophet Muhammad received the revelations that form the Qur’an, the scripture of Islam, between the years AD 610 and 632, the year of his death…
At this time, the divine message was not compiled into the book form in which it appears today. Instead, the revelations were preserved in ‘the memories of men.’ Parts of it had also been written down on parchment, stone, palm leaves and the shoulder blades of camels… Caliph Abu Bakr, the first leader of the Muslim community after Muhammad, ordered the collection of all Qur’anic material in the form of a book. The final, authoritative written form was completed and fixed under the direction of the third leader, Caliph Uthman, in about AD 650."
