Two segregated film crews,
one black and one white, used the perspective of race to create a documentary centered on the dragging death of a black man by three whites five years ago in Jasper, Texas. The New York filmmakers behind the "Two Towns of Jasper"
found the differences in perspective before filming began and the divide only grew more distinct during the two-year project. Premieres January 22nd on PBS
and has already won multiple film awards.

"Our goal is to become bigger than Yahoo"
"...We don't serve banners or pop-ups...We will not rent, sell or trade your personal information...
Out of the gate, we make money through Google's advertisements - Google sells the ads, Dell pays Google and Google pays us....Does it work? Yes. In fact, we will be profitable in our first month of operation." Could this be a Google back-door attempt to begin to move into Yahoo territory, or are they just starry-eyed dreamers? Their mission
, and some answers
from the founder, apparently the same people behind iWon.com. PS Site really does look like a Yahoo carbon copy. There must be some copyright issues.

Be careful how you sing "My Way"
After being ridiculed for an off-key version of My Way, the irate singer kills one heckler and wounds another. Philippine karaoke bars have begun to remove the song from their playlists as this was the climax of several violent incidents when this song was played.
