ISIS declares leader al-Baghdadi ‘caliph of the Muslims,’ changes name | News | DW.DE | 29.06.2014

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on Sunday released an audio recording declaring its leader the caliph, also saying that it would change its own name, removing references to Iraq and Syria to call itself Islamic State.

“The Shura (council) of the Islamic State met and discussed this issue,” ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani said in the recording. “The Islamic State decided to establish an Islamic caliphate and to designate a caliph for the state of the Muslims. The jihadist cleric Baghdadi was designated the caliph of the Muslims.”

Danny and the Juniors- At The Hop

Bah-bah-bah-bah, bah-bah-bah-bah

Bah-bah-bah-bah. bah-bah-bah-bah, at the hop!

Well, you can rock it you can roll it

You can stop and you can stroll it at the hop

When the record starts spinnin’

You *chalypso* when you chicken at the hop

Do the dance sensation that is sweepin’ the nation at the hop

Ah, let’s go to the hop

Let’s go to the hop, (oh baby)

Let’s go to the hop, (oh baby)

Let’s go to the hop

Come on, let’s go to the hop

Well, you can swing it you can groove it

You can really start to move it at the hop

Where the jockey is the smoothest

And the music is the coolest at the hop

All the cats and chicks can get their kicks at the hop

Let’s go!

Let’s go to the hop

Let’s go to the hop, (oh baby)

Let’s go to the hop, (oh baby)

Let’s go to the hop

Come on, let’s go to the hop

Let’s go!

Well, you can rock it you can roll it

You can stop and you can stroll it at the hop

When the record starts spinnin’

You *chalypso* when you chicken at the hop

Do the dance sensation that is sweepin’ the nation at the hop

You can swing it you can groove it

You can really start to move it at the hop

Where the jockey is the smoothest

And the music is the coolest at the hop.

All the cats and chicks can get their kicks at the hop.

Let’s go!

Let’s go to the hop

Let’s go to the hop, (oh baby)

Let’s go to the hop, (oh baby)

Let’s go to the hop

Come on, let’s go to the hop

Bah-bah-bah-bah, bah-bah-bah-bah

Bah-bah-bah-bah. bah-bah-bah-bah, at the hop!

The Many Reasons to Dislike Facebook’s Mood Manipulation Experiment – The Wire

For one week in January 2012, data scientists skewed what almost 700,000 Facebook users saw when they logged into its service. Some people were shown content with a preponderance of happy and positive words; some were shown content analyzed as sadder than average. And when the week was over, these manipulated users were more likely to post either especially positive or negative words themselves.”

Confronting the Central American Refugee Crisis

Figueroa notes that seven of ten migrants interviewed stated they were fleeing from their countries due to death threats, extortion or the assassination of a relative by gangs or “the narcos.” Criminal groups charge for everything–to sell in the street; to operate an established business, large, medium or small; and extortion is so widespread that they even charge a “quota” of families who receive remittances from relatives in the United States. It is a common practice that the gangs try to recruit minors to act as informants or to sell drugs in the schools and if they refuse they are executed.
