This was rec'd by my dermatologist as an option and I really like this. It's not too heavy but does a great job I have sensitibe combo oil tzones dehydrated skin. This has a super simple ingredient list and will work for any skin type. I bought a couple of backups of this last week as they were on sale. I tend to go through it quite fast anyway. The price really isn't ideal considering that you do need quite a big glob for each I have repurchased.

The songs resonate because they manage to delicately balance the cryptic and the quotidian, rendering a compellingly honest equivocation without evasiveness, a relatable ambivalence without apathy. Originally released in by Plastic Factory Records in a highly limited edition of LPs, Whine of the Mystic has gone largely unheard beyond the finely-tuned ears of Montreal and the Maritime Provinces, so Paradise of Bachelors is delighted to introduce it to more Southerly climes.
One of those things was that tape. I felt that I shouldn't have had to turn that over to the government, but at the same time there was absolutely nothing sensitive or confidential on it. So it was worth fighting for, but once I had lost my fight in the district court level in the 9th circuit, there wasn't really any reason not to publish the tape and simultaneously turn it over to the government.
I mean, yeah, those shots of my shoes are a bit embarrassing but they're not worth going to jail over. So once we had exhausted our appeals, we offered to turn over the tape in exchange for my release.
But the U. Attorney said he wouldn't accept anything but full compliance with the demand of the subpoena. That would have involved testifying before a grand jury and turning over my documentation for my video-editing software But on February 14, the judge suddenly ordered the case into mediation with a magistrate judge. During the course of two mediations, we came to an agreement — I would publish the tape and then turn it over to the federal government, and they would not object to my release.
And they decided to call this full compliance with the subpoena, although it wasn't full compliance at all. So that's where we stand right now. The government still has the option to re-subpoena me to try to make me testify about the content of the tapes or what I saw there that night.
But I don't think they're going to because they know that I'm not going to testify. I'll go back to jail and it will be an even bigger public fiasco for the U. Attorneys office. And they're not really short on public fiascos right now. RU: You got a fair amount of support from the mainstream press on this. I assume that the government figured you were some punk blogger, and they could yank you out of all social circumstances and throw you deep into the hole, and there would be very little discussion about it.
But quite a few journalists expressed their concern in terms of the protection of journalists. Did this surprise you at all? JOSH: The reception from the journalistic community has been very much mixed — especially in the mainstream journalist community. Even from the alterna-press, there were some mixed receptions. Some journalists realize that if they're coming after me — they're next.
And they realize that this whole concept of objective journalism is kind of a misnomer. You can never be objective.
But some get very offended by the idea that I should be protected, because protecting me makes it easier for them to be attacked as being part of the same group. And I think that's one of the things at the crux of the public's reception to protests in general. I mean, in this particular protest, there was one violent incident where one police officer was injured probably by one protester.
And because of that. RU: The big mainstream media question is "Can bloggers be journalists? And I think the counter-argument would be that nearly everyone could become a blogger, and then everyone would be protected from giving evidence. So a group could conspire to break laws and members who blog could be protected. Karl Rove could become a journalist and make the same kind of claim! JOSH: That argument's flawed, because if you are involved in a criminal activity, you don't have to testify because you're protected by the Fifth Amendment.
RU: Good point! They say, "Here's a waiver. You no longer have the Fifth Amendment. And consider the First Amendment — freedom of speech. Why doesn't that include freedom of silence? Why does the freedom to speak not include the freedom not to speak? And so, yes — journalists should be protected in order to protect the act of journalism.
But in a larger context, why do we have coercive custody to force people to testify? I mean, it's really a form of very low-grade torture — we're going to hold you in custody until you break down and speak.
RU: : It's definitely something we don't accept from gangsters, but we do seem to accept it from the state. Tell us a little about your prison experience. What kind of prison were you in and what kind of interactions did you have with the prisoners? JOSH: It wasn't a country club but it was kind of like being in a really, really low-rent camp.
But you can never leave. I kept waiting for the fishing trip, like when you're at camp, you're thinking about the fishing trip. It never came. JOSH: It was kind of like being in a college dorm, except there were fewer choices. There weren't any girls. Unlike college, there was not much in the way of drugs or alcohol.
The guys were all pretty cool. They were mostly a combination of bank robbers, drug dealers, a few white-collar criminals. The most interesting segment of the prison population are the "Piezas. The term has been adapted to those that are here from Mexico. Most of these guys had no prior criminal history. They were in jail for crossing the border — an imaginary line. We've decided that's a felony. And they've been getting between three and five years in jail. And while they're incarcerated, they have to work.
And they're often fined for their crime. They're fined an amount that just happens to add up to the cents-an-hour that they make while they're incarcerated.
So our government has time-share slaves. Instead of getting our slaves from Africa, we're getting people that come to America to build better opportunities for themselves. And they end up spending three-to-five years building government furniture.
RU: This kind of slavery or serfdom becomes even more interesting when you have privately-owned prisons. I imagine that you were in a state-controlled prison. JOSH: It was a federally-owned prison. I think there's somewhere between three and five privately-contracted prisons in the federal system. A lot of states, particularly in the south, have more private prisons than public prisons.
It's very disturbing that we have contracted out our prisons because there's a certain public oversight that's expected — or at least should be expected — when it comes to a government-run operation. But when you give prisons to the Wall family to run, it becomes a private business. And lots of things that are private in private businesses remain private. When that involves controlling human movement, it becomes really dangerous RU: I think having a profit interest in incarceration is about as skeevy as you can get.
Although I certainly know some libertarians who would disagree with me. Did you wind up finding any compatriots in prison? Did people discuss politics? And did people there know why you were there? JOSH: Most everyone was aware of it. Of course, the level of understanding varied. In its simplest terms, I was there for refusing to cooperate with the government. I was going to jail for not being a snitch. Having not committed a crime and then also "not snitching" — that's pretty respectable in the prison hierarchy.
I think the only person above that was probably Greg Anderson because he's a friend of Barry Bonds. Not snitching on Barry Bonds… that was like… "Whoa! And he's a trainer! And people in prison are into working out so that's a sort of demigod-like position. In terms of the politics, I found compatriots at different levels.
I spoke about political activism. I had a few books about anarchism that were sent to me that were passed around the prison. It's kind of interesting that those got in. They didn't try to censor it. RU: : They didn't understand what they were, probably.
JOSH: They weren't going to allow a press release to come out that the prison was censoring reading material. RU: Tell us about the project you are developing involving prisoners. JOSH: I've started prisonblogs. We want to pair up individual prisoners with sponsors on the outside who agree to type up what they have to say and post it on their own blog.
There are lots of military blogs, which the government's currently trying to crack down on. So now we'll have prison blogs. The media oftentimes can't get access to what goes on behind those walls. And the people I've encountered have amazing stories about prison culture and their oppression at the hands of the guards — stories that don't get out to the public.
RU: Are they ever allowed to blog at all? Also, wasn't there a law passed against interviewing prisoners — a sort of blockade against prisoners communicating to the media? JOSH: It can be different between the states and the feds. In federal prisons, you can interview prisoners — I've seen prison interviews.
At the facility I was in, they refused any filmed interviews, but they permitted phone interviews. I don't know exactly what the state rules are, but I know Schwarzenegger just vetoed a bill that would've opened the gates a little further. But I'm dealing with what prisoners can do, in terms of self-publishing. I know they can't get publish with a byline and they can't get paid for it. Now I don't know whether a blog counts as publishing with a byline, but RU: …Is there evidence that this will be allowed?
YouTube will share ad revenue with year-old Brandon Fletcher. It's just 46 days after Brandon's YouTube show launched, and he sent me an email this morning. It had a link to the breaking story, and a single emoticon. He'd vowed he'd stay in YouTube's lobby until they agreed to put his video on their front page.
Eventually, Brandon flew back to New York City. But he'd made some crucial contacts So what was his big idea? I did some sleuthing, and discovered it would be a web reality show.
Couples who met online would have their first real-life date -- and Brandon would film it. But a few weeks later, my skepticism started to melt, and I fired off an email to our editor. The internet disorganizes information for you , so you can organize it for yourself — alone or with friends. That is the distilled essence of David Weinberger's theory about how we create meaning and understanding for ourselves in these times.
Weinberger's provocatively titled new book, Everything Is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder , has been widely praised and may take it's place alongside The Long Tail as an epoch-defining tome. Weinberger was also a co-author of the notorious boom-era best seller, The Cluetrain Manifesto.
The interview was originally conducted via Skype for NeoFiles. He had a saying: "Everything is deeply intertwingled. You actually deal with this quote in the book. How does Nelson's idea relate to your idea? That's just a great, made-up word that says that things don't come in neat categories. Sometimes we need to put things into very strict categories, and we manage to do that. If you're working at the Department of Motor Vehicles and somebody comes in with a boat trailer, you've got to decide: Does it or does it not belong in the category of licensed vehicles.
We have to make these sorts of decisions. But that's not the normal case. The meaning of most things is linked, loose and ambiguous. The category systems that we've had in the past, the taxonomies — each with its experts — have not generally reflected that intertwingularity. But the web, with its link structure, and with its messy, ungoverned, permission-free link structure, perfectly represents the intertwingularity. RU: In the world of atoms as opposed to the world of material stuff, it's easier to make all that intertwingling available.
It seems almost like we're in a virtual "Six degrees of Kevin Bacon" world. Everything is six clicks away. DW: Yes. The internet works that way. And there are so many different links and ways to get to things because the significance of our world works that way. That's why things on the web have accumulated so many messy, unpredictable links. Lots of people have seen lots of ways in which things are related, and we can express that on the web.
We don't have to minimize it. You know, in a library, a physical book has to go on only one shelf under one category. That's not a natural restriction; a single book is about many different things. But even when you try to make up for that restriction with the catalog card, which is a very reduced form of meta-data for the book, the size of the card is dictated by the inconvenience of atoms. The size of the card means that you can't put in very many of those references. But on the web, everybody can put in his or her own references.
We can have hundreds or millions of references and links and connections of meaning linked to a single resource. There's no limit. So, in some ways, the web reflects better the complexity of the linked nature of the world. RU: The massive hyperlinked web of correspondences and information that Nelson talked about with his Project Xanadu in the s is happening, but it's sort of self-assembling.
There's a sentence in your book that's unobtrusive — or you might say it's miscellaneously in the middle of a paragraph somewhere — but I picked it out because it seems to go right to heart of what you're saying. This is the quote: "A big part of miscellaneous information contains relationships beyond reckoning. About the Author: Ethan Todras-Whitehill is a freelance writer who covers technology, travel, and subcultures.
He contributes regularly to The New York Times and several national magazines. He also blogs at crucialminutiae. In high school, and particularly college, I was The Guy Friend. I was always more comfortable with girls, having grown up effectively with three sisters.
And for those girls—and I think they would agree—I was great at demystifying the male-female interaction.
Well, I had help. And with my own scientific mind, I developed these laws further. So without further ado, I present to you: The Law: In a relationship, there exists a Constant Distance CD between two people that must be maintained at all times. You may copulate in peace.
But it must change gradually, over time. Sudden attempts to change the distance, especially when initiated by only one party, will result in the other person instinctively moving to re-establish the CD, likely using Pushes or Pulls. Causes of CD Disequilibrium Constant Distances are not merely determined by the affection of the two parties. Love and compatibility play a strong role, but so does circumstance.
If a person does not believe in marriage, for instance, or in long term commitment, that Life Plan creates a greater CD with a person who does not share those Life Plans. Desire or the lack of desire for children are another factor. Preternatural attachment to sauerkraut is yet a third.
If one person in the relationship is exceptionally busy for a certain period of time, and their free time is inhibited, their CD may appear to change for their partner. This will usually result in the partner enacting Pulls or False Pushes.
The action or behavior will have all the hallmarks of a real Push but will be disingenuous. The false Push is enacted in order to make the person with the greater CD believe that he or she is in fact the person with the smaller CD.
The hope is that this will then cause the person with the greater CD to behave as described above, enacting Pulls of his or her own. The danger in this strategy, of course, is that sometimes a false Push can engender another false Push, which might create such large perceived CDs that the relationship simply ends.
If it were not for False Pushes, romantic comedy screenwriters would be out of business. He took a look around at the equipment available during the s — tape recorders, video cameras, 8mm film — and realized that it wasn't necessarily about producing new narratives in the traditions of theater, opera and so forth.
In fact, this was the stuff for documenting life right up to the point of tedium and beyond it, and it would be increasingly democratically accessible. This was, in fact, the context for his most famous quote: "In the future, everybody will be famous for 15 minutes. But since he approached it all with such deadpan irony, others viewed his approach as the epitome of cool.
Today, Socrates' famous dictum, "the unexamined life is not worth living" has been surgically altered to read, "the undocumented life is not worth living. On arrival, justin. Justin appeared on "Nightline," "The Today Show," and "MTV News," and various blogs, newspapers and magazines covered his occasional travails pranks, evictions, etc. Not wanting to miss our chance at some justin.
Justin Kan showed up at our former studio in San Francisco's lower Haight with a small entourage that included his brother who contributed a funny and cool rap song to the show. He proved to be funny, smart, self-aware, and entirely likeable. Since we interviewed Kan last month, justin. And "Parrris Harris," who calls himself a "fashion conductor" has also been added to the roster. Have you thought about the implications of that? We're losing our privacy, whether we like it or not, right now.
It's partially voluntary — through blogs and things like justin. And it's partially involuntarily, through the prevalence of closed-circuit TV cameras everywhere.

Since in every evolutionary sequence of the cosmos there were very many creatures, and each was constantly faced with many possible courses, and the combination of all their courses were innumerable, an infinity of distinct universes exfoliated from every moment of every temporal sequence in this cosmos.
Outside of science fiction—IRL—we rarely find those answers, or even those inquiries. So the ambitious, allusive new album by the Canadian band Nap Eyes is an anomaly. In this role, the song-persona, if not the songwriter, resembles a monkish, beatifically stoned Columbo, vigilantly squinty-eyed in his metaphysical quest for self-understanding, despite ostensible bumbling on the physical plane.
Perhaps goodness will manifest in the multiverse, on a different circuit than this faulty, frayed one. Is that faith or fantasy? And what is the difference? The title is also, of course, a sly Michael Jackson appropriation. Brad is a physical guitarist whose lyrical grace is matched only by the dark ferocity of his feedback-laced solos.
