Here’s the shotguns used tonight. Lots of restraint shown:

Summary of the night (August 18th, 2014):

There were many arrests throughout the night. Water bottles and other objects were thrown at police, and after gunshots rang out near the QuikTrip, police began firing smoke and gas indiscriminately. There have been reports of white anarchist agitators from out of town, provoking police.

Many protesters ran, terrified, coughing. Journalists were caught in the gas: one canister rolled right under a photographer, who collapsed from it. Fires and bricks were used by residents to try and keep back police.

Police began clearing out the street, ordering anyone who wasn’t credentialed media to leave or be faced with arrest. When one reporter (who is livestreaming the events and has a camera on him) explained he lost his credentials while being fired at and showed his PRESS patch instead, officer told him “this doesn’t mean shit” while ripping the journalist’s PRESS patch off of his vest and throwing it to the ground.

Police formed two lines and began moving forward. A handful of protesters got caught between the lines, trapped but repeatedly told to get out. Among them, WaPo reporter Wesley Lowery reports that the entire neighbourhood has barriers and many people are unable to get home.

SWAT teams have begun doing tactical sweeps and media were ordered away.

Amnesty International was also on the ground tonight and were kicked out by police. Currently, AI is highly critical of the US.

There are still a few people trapped, it appears, including a few reporters, who are tweeting that they’re being mercilessly gassed:

And here’s an image of what it looks like when they fire gas:

So let’s talk about your new favorite website and app, Duolingo.

image

I haven’t seen anyone on my dash talking about this and that’s a fucking crying shame because Duolingo is the shit. You can use Duolingo to learn Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese. Even Dutch, if you’re feeling frisky and want to play with a Beta test (Dutch is not available on Android, but def. grabbable online for all of your language expanding pleasures).

What makes Duolingo so damn special? They make learning a new language into something they call gamefication. You earn points and you kick your friends’ asses with your mad linguistic skills.(Hell yes I’m at the top of my personal leaderboard)

image

No sass about my idioms being weak. Deutsche sprache, schwere sprache.

And it works. Like, really really works.

image

But what makes Duolingo so amazing is that its goal from the very beginning was to be a free and easily accessible ESL tool in order to make people more employable world wide. Even their English certification test (normally only $20!) is free right now!

And there are no ads.

None.

The program is supported through the crowd-sourced translations the users do as part of the “immersion” training. You get practice, the Duolingo community talks about it and makes corrections and meshes the good work from different people together, and the final product becomes a translation Duolingo sells to keep the lights on. So to speak.

Will you sound like a native? Probably not. Will you be able to hold your own in a gramatically imperfect and probably clunky way in a normal conversation? Hey, it’s a damn sight better than where I’m at now, so I’m in. And so should you.

It’s super easy to find a way to use it. You can get it from the Apple Store and you can get it from Google Play. You can log in to the website and learn and find extras that aren’t on the app. You can… probably not use it via smoke signals, but I won’t stand in your way if you want to try, bro.

Duolingo.com

Go forth and be awesome in many tongues, my friends.

Hey folks!

Thank you for joining me!  My name is Drew Green and I’m the creator of the webcomic you quite probably are here to read (or so I hope!).

"Lotus For Help" follows the weird adventures of an ex-secret agent, her wizard boss, a bubbly demon summoner, and an invisible demon.  It’s here on this fateful night where we begin the tale that will cause their paths to cross, so I hope you enjoy the ride!

I would sincerely like to thank everyone who is joining me for the beginning of “Lotus For Help.”  Even in the first five pages, you’ll see how much I bounce around and experiment with coloring styles, backgrounds, etc., and I’m okay with that.  This will be an ever-evolving process and I’m excited to share it with you.

"Lotus For Help" will update every Wednesday (for now), so be sure to check back weekly to see how the story unfolds!

~Drew

For all the liberals saying that the shit in Ferguson is going off because the police are so militarised, you have it backwards.

The police are so militarised because the American ruling class has been preparing for shit like this.

They are arming themselves for a civil war, because they know that people can only take so much exploitation and violence before they rise up.
