  1. On June 24, Monday night in front of an audience, John Lithgow, Annette Bening, Kevin Kline, Kyra Sedgwick, Alyssa Milano, Michael Shannon, Alfre Woodard, Joel Grey and more took the stage at New York’s Riverside Church for a live reading of “The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in Ten Acts.” The 10 acts of the play each had a title corresponding to an act of possible obstruction committed by Trump.
  2. I'm adding a Greek-Cypriot to this list of guitar players. His name is Alexis Kasinos and he's a young jazz player. More info at his website here.
  3. Applied a fix. Looks like back on track. Let me know (via PM) if otherwise.
  4. Oops... Just verified that it is ...broken. Will try to address...
  5. It should be in effect. Keep in mind that it preserves capitalization for particular words. i.e AEK, FIFA. If those words are in a context like PAOK-AEK or Greece vs Turkey (FIFA WC Qualifiers) then 'PAOK-AEK' is deemed one string as is '(FIFA' For best results, pad the words with spaces., i.e 'PAOK - AEK' or ( FIFA WC Qualifiers ). Some error still occur, and moderators can help correct by editing the tile.
  6. Disappointing series for the Bucks. Yes, they are a young team with lots to learn. Giannis, a gifted player, has to work on his shooting game. He has to be able to score from anywhere, not just inside the paint. The Raptors adjusted great after going down two games. They deserve going to the finals.
  7. Raptors take Game 3 in double overtime (118-112). Giannis has 12 points., 23 rebounds and 7 assists. So much for my predictions, huh?
  8. On the day Antetokounmpo was named a finalist for regular-season MVP, he produced an MVP performance with 30 points, 17 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal.
  9. Bucks squeak by in game 1. Take the lead in the series with 108-100 win. Giannis has 29 points and 11 rebounds. For a moment there, I did think that the Raptors were going to pull this off.
  10. My pick: The Bucks steamroll over the Raptors in 4 games. No doubt it will be an exciting series and will come to cement Giannis as a world class basketball player.
  11. For those that missed it.... Συγχαρητήρια ρε ΠΑΟΚτζήδες!!

  13. In the following weeks, Phantis will introduce a new type of membership: Premium Membership Premium Membership will require an annual or monthly subscription. Premium Members will have access to new areas and features. This new type of membership does not affect regular membership, that continues to be open to new registrations and free to join). We will try to outline the benefits of Premium Membership in the coming days. Here's a glimpse of some of the features that Premium Members will have access to: Clubs: A way of supporting sub-communities. A premium member will be able to create and manage his/her own Club. Sort of an area for other vertical interests. For example we have an active club in Guitar World. Blogs: A premium member will have their own blog (if they choose so). They will have full control over content and commentary. Sticky Notes: Premium Members can send sticky notes to others. Sticky notes are like yellow post-it notes that appear on a top layer on the screen until a user dismisses them. They are attention grabbing notes. More to follow... As we ready things for this new chapter, we would like to thank all the people that have helped with improving our services, and, at one point or another, have dedicated their time in service of their fellow members. As part of our gratitude, we would like to offer these individuals a lifetime of Premium Membership ( - as long as they continue to be in good standing with these forums). The following members are as of now Premium Members (in alpha order): Bananas Dutch Eagle Pash (In case I am forgetting somebody, I will add to this name list as it comes to mind.) For those members that might want to become Premium Members but are not be able to afford the subscription, we invite them to become more active in helping improve this community. In return for their help, we will provide them with some form of premium access.
  14. Joe Biden entered the race and raises $6.3 M in his first day. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders pounce on Biden.
  15. Words matter. Words coming from the leader of a nation carry even more weight. His choice of words is not coincidental. It is this choice of words that I find myopic in terms of leading a country. Short term political gains that erode a nation's long-term social cohesion.
  16. This is the most cheekiest penalty you will ever see. Eric Bautheac just destroyed the keeper.
  17. Again, if a group of people have the right to protest, they either do it in a legal or illegal manner. There's nothing that says one choice is more 'Australian' than the other. The choice is strictly between 'legal' or 'illegal' This is exactly what you said. The term you used is 'Wake up' and urges people to move from the stage of sleep (subconscious) to that of consciousness (reality). Read for yourself. The term 'the People' is not a descriptor of numbers. Rather, it implies individuals that are members of the working class in a society and each are on equal standing with their peers. By definition, right-wing politics hold that certain social orders and hierarchies are inevitable, natural, normal, or desirable. Hierarchy and inequality may be viewed as natural results of traditional social differences or the competition in market economies. Labor unions are considered 'the voice of the people' - whereas collective bargaining is pursued in order to maintain and improve the living standards of their members. Unions restrain the unfettered operation of capitalism by bargaining for such things as shorter hours and higher wages. Since - as described above - right-wing politics espouse hierarchy and inequality they oppose (in general) labor unions in pursuit of higher gains for the owners of the means of capital production. So, if labor unions are 'the People' and right-wing politics oppose labor unions, can we conclude that right-wing politics can never become 'the People'? Of course one can seek to attach the term to a quantitative measure of more than one person (i.e. two persons = the people) in an effort to make words and terms appear to have no meaning whatsoever. Through the years, civil society has tended to be seen as liberal: supportive of human rights, democratic reform and the protection of minorities. Often, it is still these "progressive" causes that appeal to younger activists and voters. Certainly. I agree with you on this.
  18. I would call that illegal trespassing and have them arrested. Still, I don't see how a label like 'un-Australian' could be used for anything else other than divisive purposes. Funny how you think that people that don't think like you, are not part of the same reality. The sooner one comes to terms that there could be multiple opinions on some issues, the better it is for all. Through discussion, new ideas emerge, and the world moves past labels and divisive stigma. "Democracy... is a charming form of government, full of variety and disorder; and dispensing a sort of equality to equals and unequals alike." - Plato
  19. Wow. Calling something un-Australian because it does not agree with one's culinary preferences, or does freedom of speech only apply to online forums and social media? Even the fact that Mr. Morrison now all of a sudden can label those that disagree with him as un-Australian, should make any citizen of the country crap in their pants. Of course, Australia does not have explicit freedom of speech in any constitutional or statutory declaration of rights, with the exception of political speech which is protected from criminal prosecution at common law per Australian Capital Television Pty Ltd v Commonwealth. As I said, I'm not that familiar with Australian politics, but I know a duck when I see one.
  20. One more extension worth looking into is TimeLineTable. It generates timelines contained in html tables. From a list of events in the correct format, the extension will generate a html table. I'll try and install sometime tomorrow....
  21. For a crush course on how wikitables work, look here.
  22. Oops! Looks like some of these extensions are out of date... Only DataTable2 seems to be acceptable...
  23. So, I'm trying to find some easy and practical way to create good looking tables in the Wiki. Basically, I think we need to start looking at how to create templates and utilize extensions. Do you guys know anything about templates. I have to admit, that I haven't worked on the Wiki in a while, and I sort of forgot my way around. When it comes to extensions, I'd like you input regarding a couple of them. Take a look at these: PropertyTables DataTable2 Simple Table I will install all three and you can test them out. Let me know if I can help or answer any questions.
  24. U.S. prosecutors unsealed an indictment accusing him of conspiring with Chelsea Manning to hack a Defense Department computer network in 2010 to obtain secret documents that WikiLeaks hoped to publish. That attempt was unsuccessful. The US Justice Department is playing it smart and is going after him for theft of secrets (more charges might follow). Press advocates are not stepping behind Assange. What makes you believe that Assange was doing stuff for the 'greater good'? After all, Assange appeared to be a tool of Russian meddling to support Donald Trump, or was that part of the 'greater good' also?
