If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue. 
Sign the petition, then spread the word.

Intense photos from Ferguson last night look more like Iraq than the U.S.

Civil unrest in response to the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., has received the lion’s share of media coverage. But as protests continus, the authorities’ response has increasingly looked less like police action and more like a crackdown in a war zone.

But it’s not just the equipment

St. Louis Politician Arrested Amidst Ferguson Protests | Huffington Post
A St. Louis official who has been a prominent presence at the protests in Ferguson, Missouri was arrested Wednesday night, according to his wife.
Antonio French is an alderman in St. Louis, who has been tweeting non-stop aboutwhat has been going on in Ferguson since a police officer shot Michael Brown, an unarmed African American teenager, on Aug. 9. In the following days, there have been protests around the city from members of the city’s African American community who believe that the shooting was unjustified.
French has been critical of the police response to the protests — which has included tear gas and wooden bullets fired at residents — telling MSNBC host Chris Hayes recently, “There is no trust between the Ferguson police department and the community at this point.”
Late Wednesday night, French’s wife tweeted that her husband had been arrested by the Ferguson Police Department. 
She then continued to tweet that he was being detained.
The Huffington Post called the Ferguson County Police Department and spoke with an official named “Julie.” She would not give her last name and said she could neither confirm nor deny that French was arrested.
When asked where confirmation could be obtained, Julie replied, “You’ll get it on the web, I guess. We’re very busy.”
About an hour later, she tweeted again that he was now being booked.
KMOX in St. Louis noted that there was a crowd at the police station awaiting his release as well.
News of French’s arrest came shortly after two reporters, Ryan Reilly of The Huffington Post and Wesley Lowery were assaulted and arrested after they did not leave a McDonald’s quickly enough when SWAT officers came and evacuated it.
"They essentially acted as a military force. It was incredible,” Reilly said in an MSNBC interview after his release. “The worst part was he slammed my head against the glass purposefully on the way out of McDonald’s and then sarcastically apologized for it.”
French’s activity at the protests has contrasted greatly with the involvement, or lack thereof, by Missouri’s state and federal leaders. Gov. Jay Nixon (D) didn’t comment at all on the protests until late Wednesday night — after getting a significant amount of heat on Twitter — saying he would be canceling his appearance at the state fair Thursday.
The police have refused to release the name of the officer who shot Brown, saying they fear for his safety.

Awwwwwww cutie

that awkward moment when deadpool is a better person than you because you would have just stole the pizza and not given a fuck

dead pool isn’t really a villian like, most of his comics  are just being like a slightly mentally challenged selfish 5 year old with an incredibly dirty mind who hits on spiderman all the time and is aware at all times of the forth wall. oh and it is literally impossible to kill him so he gets a bit reckless at times

Captain Chaotic Neutral.

Basically a cutie
