NRA Flees Facebook, Twitter Following Sandy Hook Shooting

NRA Flees Facebook, Twitter Following Sandy Hook Shooting | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it
The National Rifle Association has abandoned its social media communities following Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
Bonnie Burns's insight:

The National Rifle Association has abandoned its social media communities following Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The NRA's Facebook page has been shuttered and it hasn't tweeted since Friday.

The NRA was highly criticized for an insensitive tweet the morning following the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting. The lobby group is presumably trying to be more cautious by leaving Facebook and not tweeting (Twitter does not give the option to unpublish a page without permanently deleting it).

Suffragette autograph album illuminates movement’s struggles

 

Personal collection with messages from leading figures of the Women’s Social and Political Union comes to auction next week

“Bravely and willingly we bear our share of the world’s burdens. Why then deny us the right to vote which would dignify our labour and increase our power of service?” writes suffragette and feminist icon Sylvia Pankhurst in a rare autograph album collecting the thoughts of dozens of her fellow suffragettes, which is set to go up for auction next week.

Pankhurst’s writing in the album is accompanied by a line from playwright and Pankhurst family friend George Bernard Shaw, who has signed the book and replied, “Ungrateful Sylvia! Did I ever deny it?” The album, which dates back to 1909, includes 50 autographs from suffragettes and sympathisers, many written from prison following Emmeline Pankhurst’s Women’s Social and Political Union‘s second window-breaking campaign in 1912. Pankhurst had said that “the broken pane of glass is the most valuable argument in modern politics”.

Something's Not Quite Right With These 10 Weird Santas

Something's Not Quite Right With These 10 Weird Santas | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it
Ho, ho, eeks, no! It seems there's always a shortage of spot-on Mr. Claus lookalikes. That means plenty of weird Santas to stuff in your sack.

No matter what Coca-Cola implied, not every Santa Claus can pull off the rosy-cheeked, red-suited look. Never mind the full white beard and jelly belly.

The demand for Santa lookalikes during the holidays means sometimes settling for a Kris Kringle who looks like the North Pole plucked him from a back alley knockoff store. Sure, he’ll still open his gift sack, but who cares about presents when visions of Santa dance in your nightmares?

How a Gmail Account Brought Down Petraeus and Threatened National Security | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it

How a Gmail account brought down David Petraeus and threatened national security.

John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John Reunite in Strange Holiday Music Video

John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John Reunite in Strange Holiday Music Video | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it

What's going on in "I Think You Might Like It," a peculiar Christmas music video from Grease co-stars John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John? We're not quite sure, but we're guessing you won't actually like it.

The song -- written by the same guy who wrote Grease's "You're the One That I Want" -- is from the duo's recently released This Christmas album.

The pair's dance moves in the new music video aren't very reminiscent of the swagger they exuded as Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsen in Grease, but the good thing is proceeds from This Christmas benefit charities.
