This is a link post Award winning student animation. Don't let the student bit put you off.
I'M FINE THANKS from eamonn o neill on Vimeo.

This is a normal post I'm sure it's really good.
But it's on Vimeo and my net connection doesn't allow me to watch more than 10 seconds. Which isn't always a problem being that Vimeo is mostly a veritable lens flare emporium of arty hipster shite.

Tell him to put it on YT.

This is a normal post I appreciate the higher quality etc.
It's great for showcasing animation like this. But its got to the stage where anyone can buy a halfway decent DSLR and film literally anything in a shaky fashion towards the sun and they'll win an award.

I'm becoming increasingly put off by any content that's hosted on Vimeo because 9/10 times you know exactly what it's going to look like without even bothering to wait for it to buffer.

and you really aren't there for salaries or pay offs like that, so Amnesty appears to have lost it's way. I mean for fuck's sake:

The annual salary I can understand - if anything I'd say that was cheap for getting someone to run an organisation that large. The vast payoff seems indefensible for a charity though, especially considering the Non-Disclosure terms.
(, Sat 17 Nov 2012, 12:37, Reply)
This is a normal post I have also worked in the charity sector, which validates me as a person
You need to weigh the good that Amnesty does against pissy Daily Mail bullshit like this when making a decision about whether to donate. Plus it's an eighteen month old story. Granted, it was quite a big story at the time, but it doesn't happen often (cf. more recent similar stories oh wait).

Also, even though the size of the payoff wasn't announced, all charities publish detailed accounts. Amnesty spend 20% of every donation on fundraising, admin and governance. they don't disclose exactly how much of that 20% goes on kickbacks for greedy execs with highly paid employment lawyers, but I'm guessing it's not a lot. Meanwhile, the other 80% goes on doing really important stuff. Try not to forget about the really important stuff, because it's really important.

This is a normal post My point was this was published in the Independent yesterday; I read it on the tube on the way to work
It's not about Daily Mail sensationalism, which 9/10 times I would naturally agree with you on, but those pay offs were nauseating for a charity to be making. If you make the career choice of working for a charity financial settlements like that are not what people donating to the cause would expect to be paying for, by any measure.

I work part time for my one, leaving me the rest of the week to earn money on the side off the radar of the Inland Revenue, and do my own thing.

This is a normal post According to Wikipedia it is actually
"£153 million on constructing and running five regional MOD Personnel Recovery Centres"

However, it is interesting to see that they do not campaign for the government to support wounded soldiers properly (and thus do themselves out of existence). The MOD should pay for those centres, not the public.

Seems like they are doing more to create a problem (ie that the government leave soldiers to rely on charity) than fix it.

Why does my local Hospice need a million pounds a year in donations just to survive? THAT is the sort of thing I happily pay tax for.
However, I do understand the RNLI and their attitude; they don't want to be government funded because it would mean government control. They would end up being 'cost effective' rather than out there saving lives.

This is a normal post Might as well rant while I'm here on the subject.
I run a charity (yes, I'm a little Saint) and you would not believe the money wasted. We rely on donations and a Council grant. The Council have reduced our grant and now have decided we should pay rates on our buildings (which are owned by the Council and rented to us on a peppercorn basis). So they give us a grant then ask for £2k of it back right away. This involves accountants, paperwork, meetings, all of which I'm sure add up to over the £2k in the first place on both sides.

This is a normal post It is OK to question the behaviour of charities
look at their accounts and all the rest of it. They operate on public money - much like governments.
If you are critical of them, perhaps you will change their culture.
And you have the freedom to vote with your pennies in this case.
And don't think a charity is non-political, and will do what you expect.
In fact, I encourage you all to be more interested in Cancer Research, and Amnesty International. It will make you a better informed human being.

As to the 'smug, liberal atheists' thing - I have never been called a liberal before! As an atheist I find it hard to understand religious fanaticism (or religion per se) can't see how that makes me or my views smug but there y'go.
I agree. it has been going on for ages, I agree the real reasons are lost in the tangle of religious hatred and mutual distrust but the irony is, both Judaism and Islam are both Abrahamic faiths, with the same god.

The power struggles over Israel/Palestine are historically significant, when the area had what lots of people wanted, everyone wanted to control the area. Now there's nothing there worth killing for except the history.

I was trying to sound deep and thoughtful

Some fat, bald bloke said this long ago. Carl Sagan said more or less the same thing more recently in a Pale Blue Dot:

"Buddha said: "I consider the positions of kings and rulers as that of dust motes. I observe treasures of gold and gems as so many bricks and pebbles. I look upon the finest silken robes as tattered rags. I see myriad worlds of the universe as small seeds of fruit, and the greatest lake in India as a drop of oil on my foot. I perceive the teachings of the world to be the illusion of magicians. I discern the highest conception of emancipation as a golden brocade in a dream, and view the holy path of the illuminated ones as flowers appearing in one's eyes. I see meditation as a pillar of a mountain, Nirvana as a nightmare of daytime. I look upon the judgment of right and wrong as the serpentine dance of a dragon, and the rise and fall of beliefs as but traces left by the four seasons."

This is a normal post I've heard Israeli's call their actions "proportional"
In the last gaza war, they killed more than ten times as many Palestinian civilians as Hamas killed Israeli. Proportional ain't the right word. Before you start, I'm aware that Hamas uses its own people as meat shields. But I'm also aware that the IDF seem to have few compunctions about blowing up the meat shields. Whenever you justify massive collateral damage with "lesser of two evils" arguments, you start sounding a lot like Hamas.

This is a normal post They should stop telling people their shit doesn't smell.
Both sides claim the moral high ground, all the while having no qualms about killing innocent people in pursuit of their causes. Even if the IDF makes no deliberate effort to murder civilians (unlike Hamas), the notion of a few dead Arabs hasn't stopped Israeli airstrikes. Israelis take no responsibility for civilians, and blame all civilian deaths on Hamas, due to Hamas' strategy of hiding behind civilians. But you can't shift responsibility when you're the one pulling the trigger.
