There’s That Darn Law of Unintended Consequences Again

Whilst media outlets leaning to the left like Politico have had sport with Ben Carson’s biography (a sport they never had with Obama’s, the precious anointed golden child of Oprah Winfrey and Jon Stewart), the dreaded law of unintended consequences rises again.  It turns out that Politico and other objectors to anyone ideologically to the right of Karl Marx and Chairman Mao have helped Carson raise a ton of money and harvest a lot of supporters.

Kurz vor ihrem Ende erfährt die Landesausstellung „Cranach der Jüngere 2015“ eine ganz besondere Würdigung: Das Erscheinungsbild der Landesausstellung gehört zu den Siegern beim German Design Award 2016, einem der anerkanntesten Design-Wettbewerbe in Deutschland!

Die international besetzte Expertenjury würdigt das Cranach-Erscheinungsbild für seine herausragende Designqualität in der Kategorie „Corporate Identity“. Der Wettbewerb wird alljährlich vom Rat für Formgebung veranstaltet. Mit dem German Design Award werden außergewöhnliche Produkte und Projekte aus den Bereichen Produkt- und Kommunikationsdesign ausgezeichnet.

Die Gestaltungsidee wurde im Rahmen eines Ideenwettbewerbs von der Agentur „Heilmeyer und Sernau Gestaltung“ aus Berlin entwickelt. Die Gestaltung hat das Anliegen der Landesausstellung aufgenommen, mit Lucas Cranach dem Jüngeren einen bisher unbekannten Meister zu entdecken. Etwas abgedunkelte, verschleierte Bildmotive werden punktuell hervorgehoben bzw. beleuchtet. Dadurch wird der Blick des Betrachters auf bestimmte, zu entdeckende Details oder Personen gelenkt.

Congratulations are in order!

CNN’s Anchors Are as Bad As Fox News’s: Fredricka Whitfield Thinks the Dallas Cop Shooter was Brave and Courageous

During a discussion on the Dallas Police headquarters shooting this afternoon, CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield appears to have really misspoken in referring to the gunman’s actions as “courageous and brave.”

Whitfield was speaking to CNN legal analyst Philip Holloway when she said this:

“It was very courageous and brave, if not crazy as well, to open fire on the police headquarters, and now you have this scene, this standoff. So you believe these are the hallmarks of more than one person’s involvement.”

That’s depravity.  Calling evil good.  Getting your news from CNN is as absurd as getting it from Fox.

Netflix Thinks Noah is the Same as Batman and The Angry Atheists Got it Recategorized

Well there ya go

… Netflix no longer categorizes Noah as a “based on real life” movie. (The company had not yet responded to emails at publication time; when and if they do, this information will be updated with their response).

Does this mean, then, that Netflix has decided that Bible-based movies are not reality, though? Far from it. Under Netflix’s “Dramas Based On Real Life” category, we find other Bible-based and Christianity-centered movies, including Son Of God and The Book Of Esther.

Numerous others are not categorized based on reality or lack thereof, but placed in the “faith and spirituality” category. This includes the Bible miniseries, Apostle Peter and The Last Supper (which is, incidentally, also listed as a ‘biographical drama’), Mysteries of the Bible, and The Passion Of The Christ — along with dozens of others.
