6. Ian McEwan Delivers Commencement Address at Dickinson College

Atonement novelist Ian McEwan gave a commencement address at the graduation ceremony for Dickinson College’s class of 2015. McEwan spoke to the students about freedom of expression; he urged these newly minted graduates to do their part to preserve this important right. The video embedded above features McEwan delivering his speech.

Time.com has posted McEwan’s piece in its entirety. Here’s an excerpt: “It’s worth remembering this: freedom of expression sustains all the other freedoms we enjoy. Without free speech, democracy is a sham. Every freedom we possess or wish to possess (of habeas corpus and due process, of universal franchise, and of assembly , union representation, sexual equality, of sexual preference, of the rights of children, of animals—the list goes on) has to be freely thought and talked and written into existence.”

In the past, a great number of authors have delivered  moving commencement speeches. Coraline writer Neil Gaiman’s 2012 “Make Good Art” talk went viral. Harry Potter series author J.K. Rowling’s 2008 “Very Good Lives” talk has drawn more than 1.5 million views on YouTube.

14. Swachh Bharat Mission-Gramin- Bakrianwali

स्वच्छता एक अहसास है … एक खुशी है … जिसे अभी तक गांव के लोगों ने महसूस नही किया था. स्वच्छ्ता अभियान चलने पर … गांव के लोगों में जो स्वच्छता के प्रति जो जागरुकता पैदा हुई वो वाकई में अपने मे ही एक उदाहरण है…

हरियाणा के जिला सिरसा का एक गांव बकरिया वाली … पूरा गांव व मानो एक परिवार बन कर सफाई मे जुट गया और वो कर दिखाया जो किसी ने सपने मे भी नही सोचा था…ऐसा जोश सिरसा के एक दो गांव का नही बल्कि सभी 333 गांवों का था

इसी सिलसिले मे  आईए आपको दिखाते है स्वच्छता से जुडे लोगो से किए  सवाल जवाब … और लोगो की खुशी …

22. Lale Westvind has made a crazy and amazing video for Lightning Bolt’s “The Metal East”

Lightning Bolt is the much loved noise band fronted by Brian Chippendale, who is also a cartoonist and fort Thunder alum. They have a new album out and are touring right now. Live shows are notoriously loud and energetic so be forewarned.

Lale Westvind is an Ignatz Award winning cartoonist of such books as Hot Dog Beach and Hyperspeed to Nowhere. She’s also an animator and she made a video for the Lightning Bolt song “The Metal East” and it’s pretty much perfect with a hyperspeed technicolor parade of fantastic robots, monsters and miscellaneous creatures. This is what noise looks like.

Good times.
