UN spokesman Chris Guinness breaks down talking about Israel’s genocide of Palestinians

Mr Gunness, a former BBC reporter now working for the UN’s Relief and Works Agency, had spent the day examining evidence and describing yet another attack on one of its sites.

Israeli tank shells had slammed into a school sheltering some 3,300 homeless Gazans, killing 16 refugees - including children - and staff, provoking world wide horror.

Mr Gunness condemned the attack, ending: “The rights of Palestinians - even their children - are wholesale denied. And it’s appalling.”

For a moment, he keeps his cool. He blinks hard and looks relieved the interview has ended.

He squeezes out a brief thank you to his interviewer, saying “My pleasure” in a shaky voice.

Then it is all too much. He presses his hand to his eyes and breaks into sobs.

A colleague rushes to comfort him as the camera is pushed away, while the sound of wailing anguish grows.

please someone reassure my this is just fuckin  w people right.

this is bullshit what the fuck

Wait y’alls cups are really that small? holy fuck

why the fuck anyone needs 1.3L of coke in one sitting is beyond me but anyway

So I saw this and then read the comments and was confused.  Is Australia the ones on the right? Because I live in Michigan (USA) and we use the cups on the left.  Where do you even get the cups on the right? Texas?

As an Australian I can confirm we use the cups on the left

In Wyoming, we use the ones on the left but the ones on the right look like the cups from the movie theatre …

The cups on the right are the ones that Coke paid for, the one that has their advertisement on it, those are the cups that The Coke company paid to have their label attached to, so those are the cups used.

Former Ohio governor Ted Strickland tried to live on minimum wage. It didn’t go well.

Former Democratic governor of Ohio Ted Strickland tried to live on minimum wage for a week and, in his own words, he “didn’t make it.”
In an op-ed for POLITICO, Strickland explains how he failed in his attempt to live for just seven days on $77, the amount the “Live the Wage” campaign estimates is left in a 40-hour minimum wage employee’s weekly pay of $290 after accounting for taxes and housing. Strickland, a Harvard fellow and well-off political operative, was clearly unprepared for just how quickly expenses added up. He had spent his $77 by Thursday after realizing his meager budget left him without the money necessary even to pay for public transportation.
