Please Watch, Important Documentary Against Texting While Driving --- Visit http://www.itcanwait.com to take the pledge, and learn more about the dangers of texting while driving. --- Acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog's wants to bring an end to the scourge of texting while driving once and for all — and he just might do it. In a powerful 35-minute PSA entitled From One Second to the Next, Herzog hauntingly and painfully documents the tragic testimonies of individuals who have shattered lives and have had their lives shattered as a direct result of texting and driving.nnThe project, part of AT&T's "It Can Wait" campaign, was distributed yesterday to over 40,000 high schools across the country.nn"There's a completely new culture out there," Herzog told the Associated Press. "I'm not a participant of texting and driving — or texting at all — but I see there's something going on in civilization which is coming with great vehemence at us." Less

This is one of those rare descriptions that I actually write for a video. I just watched this video on my mac, as it was loading it onto youtube, and one thing I was struck by was how embarrassingly candid I am in it. I brought up race and this kid I kenw named Derrick because I was going to say something about how less racist and less racially conscious it was up in Canada, where the French-Canadian women weren't as knee-jerk opposed to even talking with African American dudes in the Air Force. The women in Maine were, and I need to stress this: GENERALLY (but not entirely) more or less uninterested in getting involved with the non-white guys. So it was like more difficult to meet women up at Loring, if you were not white, by like a magnitude of 1000. I imagine this changed on the late 80s and into the 90s, as culture diversified, especially musically, and as demographics shifted across the US, but who knows.... Also, I'm not entirely sure what command the Wing Commander's daughter actually occupied. It wasn't the squadron commander's daughter, I'm pretty sure, and her father was someone further up the ladder on base.... Now that we're a month into 2013, it doesn't sting as badly as a few weeks ago. What you are watching is what it looks like to be me in your passive-aggressive world. If you've got something funny or positive to add, please leave a comment. I moderate and delete all negative comments. You haters will be shunned like a bad Amish teenager. Less

The Keystone state -- key to America's independence. Check out the history and culture of Pennsylvania, where many German-speaking immigrants settled, with Christopher Hoh.nnTranscript:nnHello, my name is Christopher Hoh. I work in the U.S. Embassy in Vienna, and I was born and brought up in the "the Keystone State."nnPennsylvania was one of the original 13 colonies. It was called the Keystone State in the 18th century because of its central location and role in U.S. history. The first capital of the United States was in Philadelphia.nnBefore it was colonized, the area was home to Native American tribes, including the Lenape and the Susquehannok.nnThe name Pennsylvania means, "Penn's Woods." In 1681, England's King Charles II gave the land to William Penn as payment for a debt of 16,000 pounds. This was one of the largest land grants to an individual in history.nnWilliam Penn was a member of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers, who were persecuted in England. So Penn established the colony for any people persecuted for their faith.nnMany religious exiles from Europe settled in Pennsylvania, including the Amish, an Anabaptist sect. Today, the Amish live much as they did in the 17th century, without modern conveniences such as electricity and cars.nnIn the 18th and 19th centuries Germans migrated to Pennsylvania in large numbers. English‐speakers mispronounced the German word, "Deutsch," as "Dutch," and these immigrants became known as the "Pennsylvania Dutch."nnIn many Pennsylvania communities, German was spoken as the language of everyday life into the early 1900's. You can still hear German dialects in the farmers' markets of Lancaster and Reading, my home town.nnThe language is similar to Germany's Palatinate dialect. For example, the man's dog -- der Hund des Mannes -- is this in PA Dutch -- em Mann sei Hund.nnToday, 12.7 million people live in Pennsylvania, the sixth most populous state in the U.S. It covers over 46,000 square miles (more than 119,000 km2 ).nnPennsylvania has several large cities. Philadelphia was known in the 1700's as the "Athens of America" because of its rich cultural life.nnPart of that is attributed to Pennsylvania's most famous citizen, Benjamin Franklin -- author, inventor, philosopher, businessman, diplomat and revolutionary leader.nPhiladelphia is also home to the Liberty Bell, the icon of American freedom. It remains on view, cracked, on Independence Mall, where the Continental Congress met and in 1776 declared independence from Britain.nnHere are some other firsts from Pennsylvania:nThe first medical school, hospital, library and insurance company were established in there.nnThe first commercially drilled oil well near Titusville produced the first U.S. oil boom in 1859.nnThe first U.S. Envoy to Austria in 1838 was Henry A.P. Muhlenberg, from Lancaster.nAnd the Philadelphia Zoo is the oldest zoo in America.nnMy hometown, Reading, is located in southeastern Pennsylvania. Formerly a textile and manufacturing center, Reading became known as "The Factory Outlet Capital of the World."nnThe surrounding area has been called the "Snack Food Capital of the World," leading all other states in the production of pretzels, chips and candy.nnThe state has some other interesting food facts.nnThe Yuengling Brewery, in Pottsville, is the oldest operating brewery in America, established in 1829.nnA little further west is Hershey, the birthplace of Hershey chocolate bars. The town smells of chocolate and the street lights are shaped like Hershey kisses.nAnd don't forget Philly cheese steaks.nnPennsylvania gave birth to one US President -- James Buchanan in the 1800s.nVice President Joe Biden was born in Scranton.nnMany actors also come from Pennsylvania including Kevin Bacon, Bill Cosby, Tina Fey and Sharon Stone, to name a few.nnPennsylvania has always had a creative music scene. Each religious sect that settled in Pennsylvania brought with it a unique style of music. The Moravians, in Bethlehem, introduced organs and trombones into their worship. The Mennonites and Lutherans sang heartily, from German hymnbooks. And the Ephrata Cloister was known for beautiful harmony.nnPopular singers today include Taylor Swift, from Wyomissing, and Christina Aguilera and George Benson, from Pittsburgh.nnPhiladelphia is also the birthplace of the famous TV program, "American Bandstand," which introduced singers and bands to teenagers for more than 20 years.nnI travel the world but I still have a strong connection to my home state: I'm a career diplomat -- like Benjamin Franklin, our country's first envoy. I'm also a composer who benefited from my home state's musical milieu.nnI'm proud to come from Pennsylvania, the land of the Liberty Bell, which helped inspire the cause of freedom for all humanity.
