Filosofa's Word

In a comment earlier this evening, Keith happened to mention Simon & Garfunkel, and immediately this song came to mind … and stayed … and stayed … and so, I am sharing this one with you, dear friends …

The Sound of Silence
Simon & Garfunkel
Produced by Tom Wilson

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by
The flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more

Live & Learn

Often people are moved to tears by sadness, but occasionally people are moved to tears by goodness. That’s what happens to the audiences of “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” the new documentary about Fred Rogers.

The documentary demonstrates how Rogers’s children’s show got started and how he used it over 30 years to teach and accompany children. It describes the famous opening sequence — Mister Rogers going to the closet, putting on the sweater, changing his shoes. It describes how he gently gave children obvious and nonobvious advice: You are special just the way you are; no, children can’t fall down the drains in the bathtub.

Sometimes he would slow down time, be silent for long periods as he fed his fish. Occasionally “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” touched politics. During the civil rights era, when black kids were being thrown out of swimming pools, Rogers and a black character bathed their…

“The indictments Rod Rosenstein announced are good news for all Americans. The Russians are nailed. No Americans are involved. Time for Mueller to end this pursuit of the President and say President Trump is completely innocent.” – Rudy Giuliani tweet 7-13-18

It’s almost as if Trump’s minions have their Twitter accounts set on auto-pilot. Another indictment, tweet the President is innocent. Another indictment, tweet no Russian collusion. Another indictment, tweet witch hunt.

But here is the thing, though the indictment didn’t name any specific Americans nor did it indicate any known collusion was taking place it did specify that an American Congressional candidate sought hacked documents about his or her opponent and that someone close (my guess Roger Stone) to the Trump campaign was in contact with the Russians who hacked and released emails from the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Committee and…

Amazon Book Review Policies Updated With $50 Minimum…

I was able to get Amazon to reinstate one of my deleted reviews. but another was deleted because? I guess, because she was an author & we know each other.
I didn’t review her book so it wasn’t a review exchange. It’s very frustrating when an author works so hard & then has reviews removed.
On the other hand, I saw one book getting hundreds of reviews every hour. Amazon did not delete a single one of those!

Amazon combats fake book reviews with $50 minimum spend

Book reviews on Amazon over the years have attracted more scams than can possibly be imagined. Most revolve around click farms and amassing lots of Amazon accounts.

By creating hundreds, if not thousands of Amazon accounts, scammers could boost free Kindle ebook downloads, add customer reviews, or manipulate book sales ranking.

There have been many, many articles written about problems associated with Amazon customer reviews in relation to ebook reviews in particular. There has also been manipulation of Kindle ebooks, as Let’s Get Digital explains how Scammers Broke the Kindle Store.

At the same time, Amazon has tried to resolve these problems in a number of ways.
