Burkini ban in France

In France this week a woman had the police insist her removing her Burkini.

Before I go on, a few things need to be pointed out.

  • My understanding is that French law states that religion is private and not public, somthing that Napoleon put into law.
  • My understanding is that covering the head is not part of Islam but often more local culture. As such some Muslim women cover the hair/head and others do not. Also (some) Jewish married ladies cover there natural hair (often with a wig). If fact even some Christian/Catholic women cover there hair (such as some Nuns).
  • England is NOT Christian but in fact pagan, and much of what are considered Christian holidays are in fact Pagan. In fact some evidence that the Christian cross was once a pagan image (a snake with a ramshead). And one suspects Drance and many other countries also are pagan converted to Christianity.

The reason I have stated the above is that often people say this (UK) is a Christian country, or that covering the head is a religious act, and so on. The arguments tend to be tripe on both sides.

However a women (or in fact a man) should have the right to cover there hair or head should they choose. They need give no reason for doing so. If some choose to cover for religious reasons, or some choose to cover for simply grounds of comfort, it is of no importance.

People should have the right to wear what they want, without the law being involved, even if that is to wear a SS uniform.

The moment you tell people what they can or cannot wear you are on shaky grounds.

It is unlikely that the Burkini offends anyone. Indeed while I myself may think it looks rather warm and uncomfortable to wear, I have no problems if other people wish to wear it.

The pleasing thing about the Burkini is that it has meant that many Muslim ladies have felt relaxed enough to go to the beach and take there families. This should be encouraged. This is how people integrate.

I have noticed in the local park that recently that it is now common to see Muslim (and families from other religions) to come to the park. It is pleasing to see as people mix with each other. If I went back only ten years, in truth I do not remember ever seeing anyone who was not white in the park.

We need to encourage people mixing together rather than not mixing. And if some women feel more comfortable wearing a Burkini to go to the beach, then so be it.

In truth, being a hairy male I have myself wanted to buy a victorian style Bathing Suit as I often feel rather embarrassed swimming and having all my hair float around in the water, plus having a bit of a tum, I would prefer to cover it up. So I would not mind a male version of the Burkini myself.

THE CHRONICLES OF NADIYA (BBC1)

I have not watched ‘The Great British Bake Off’, so was not interested in all the media hype about Nadiya Hussain.

I did flick on ‘THE CHRONICLES OF NADIYA’ to pass the time. However it was very good.

Nadiya Hussain is a natural presenter, and the show reminded me of Keith Floyd in the way he did his shows.

Unlike cookery shows with pro cooks, Nadiya Hussain does things like Keith Floyd and did not do things perfect. For example not make enough icing. She also like Keith Floyd allowed others to be stars of the show.

Part of me wonders is she is more pro when it comes to the media than is let on, as she comes across as a professional presenter and not someone who has just started to do this.

Bangladesh clearly looks to be a nice place to live.

Whatsapp to let companies message users

Whatsapp has changed its privacy policy to let businesses send messages to people using the service.

The company suggested messages typically sent via SMS text message – such as flight alerts from airlines – could be sent on Whatsapp instead.

Pornhub and xHamster are using viewer data and charitable stunts to move out of the margins

The porn site xHamster is in the midst of a PR onslaught. In the past several months, the company protested an anti-trans bathroom bill by interrupting access to its site in North Carolina, restricted rape-related searches in response to the Brock Turner rape case, and sent pizzas to the Dallas Police Department following the murder of several officers. When the Cincinnati Zoo killed the now meme-famous gorilla Harambe after a child fell into its enclosure, the company offered to pay for the relocation costs of the remaining animals. Walmart controversially fired a greeter with cerebral palsy and xHamster offered him a job. The overturned conviction for “Making a Murderer’s” Brendan Dassey led the company to extend a $10,000 porn contract, and a free ticket to Wrestlemania, to the 26-year-old.

Google punishes sites with pop-up adverts

Google is to penalise websites that feature intrusive pop-up adverts.

It is updating the algorithms used to rank its search results so that offending pages are more likely to get lower placings.

The change is due to come into effect on 10 January.

Google makes much of its money from placing ads on the mobile web. One expert said the company wanted to give users one less reason to use ad-blockers or search within apps instead.

For its part, Google said the move should make using some of its results less frustrating.

“Pages that show intrusive interstitials [elements that cover the content] provide a poorer experience to users than other pages where content is immediately accessible,” it blogged.

Jeremy Corbyn admits there WERE seats on ‘ram-packed’ train

I am a fan of Jeremy Corbyn but I am disappointed at his silly Virgin stunt [LINK].

I have been on Virgin trains and found the experience enjoyable.

Trains are expensive in the UK, BUT I presume this is not greed but because train firms are charged silly licence fees of a Billion or so pounds, which clearly is passed on to the user.

Windows 10 update stops webcams working

A Windows 10 update has stopped many popular webcams from working.

The update, released earlier this month, stops many cameras being used for Skype or to broadcast and stream footage.

The cause seems to be a change in the way Windows 10 handles video so it can be used by more than one program at a time.

Microsoft said it was working on a fix but has not given any date for when the patch will be available.
