  1. Assessing the Threat of Incel Violence

    Over the last few years, a series of deadly incidents in North America, from the 2014 rampage carried out by Elliot Rodger in Santa Barbara to the 2018 van attack that killed ten people in Toronto, have been linked to incels (involuntary celibates). It has since become widely accepted that the rise in incel-inspired extremism, coupled with growing links with white supremacist ideologies, presents a growing challenge to law enforcement and counter-terrorism practitioners in North America and Europe.

    On May 26, 2020, at 11:00 AM EST, the Program on Extremism hosted an online event examining the threat of violence perpetrated by incels. The panelists, who discussed their research on the topic, were:

    Bruce Hoffman, the Shelby Cullom and Kathryn W. Davis Senior Fellow for Counterterrorism and Homeland Security at the Council on Foreign Relations and a professor at Georgetown University’s Security Studies Program;

    Renske van der Veer, Director of the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT) - The Hague; and

    Jacob Ware, Research associate at the Council on Foreign Relations.

    Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens, Program on Extremism Director of Research (moderator)

  4. Learn Morse Code from a Memory Champ (in 15 minutes)

    This is a video I’ve been wanting to do for a while (in part because I’ve wanted to learn Morse Code myself, for years!) and I’ve also had many requests for it.

    In my mind, there are 2 ways to go about learning Morse Code. So here are both ways!

    It’s one of my lengthier videos, but hopefully it will help anyone who watches this, to learn Morse Code completely in just 15 minutes, with a little bit of help from some mnemonics.

    Here is the standard International Morse Code pdf I reference in the video:

    And also, all of the silly phrases for all the letters in the alphabet (lowercase signifies a dot, caps signifies a dash):

    A: a - PART B: BOB - is - the - man C: CO - ca - CO - la D: DOG - did - it E: eh?

  6. Politics and the English Language by George Orwell

    "Politics and the English Language" (1946) is an essay by George Orwell that criticised the "ugly and inaccurate" written English of his time and examines the connection between political orthodoxies and the debasement of language.

    The essay focuses on political language, which, according to Orwell, "is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind". Orwell believed that the language used was necessarily vague or meaningless because it was intended to hide the truth rather than express it. This unclear prose was a "contagion" which had spread to those who did not intend to hide the truth, and it concealed a writer’s thoughts from himself and others. Orwell encourages concreteness and clarity instead of vagueness, and individuality over political conformity.

  8. The Netflix of Podcasts (Will Fail)

    ABOUT YOUTUBE PREMIUM So, I actually think YT Premium is a great deal because I hate watching ads on YouTube and I have disposable income. But I get ALL of YouTube ad free. This new thing is like, "Come get some podcasts ad free…it’s like 0.002% of all podcasts. Enjoy!"

    Look, what do I know, I’ve been wrong so many god damn times. But I’ve also watched as plenty of people have attempted to create media consolidation businesses in low-barrier content fields and BOY HAVE THEY FAILED A LOT!
