  2. President Barack Obama eulogy at John Lewis funeral

    Former President Barack Obama eulogized civil rights icon, Rep. John Lewis, during his funeral service on Thursday, July 30. During his speech, Obama spoke about the virtues of equality, why the best way to honor Lewis is to vote and the first time he met Lewis. Obama called Lewis one of his heroes, saying he first met him while in law school, then again when he was elected to the U.S. Senate. When Obama was elected President in 2008, he told Lewis, "this is your day, too."

    "George Wallace may be gone, but we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators," Obama said. "If politicians want to honor John, let’s revitalize the law that he was willing to die for."

    Obama also spoke at length about the importance of voting and why Lewis dedicated his life so that all Americans could share freedom.

    The services will be held at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached, with ceremonies beginning at 11 a.m. A recessional will mark the end of ceremonies at 12:30 p.m.

    The Civil Rights icon died July 17 after serving the people of the Fifth District for 17 terms. The Georgia Democrat was 80 years old.

    Former President Barack Obama is expected to deliver the eulogy. Obama has been know to credit the civil rights icon fo…

  3. Watch: Glenn Greenwald’s Exclusive Interview With Evo Morales in Mexico City

    On November 10, Evo Morales, who served as president of Bolivia for 13 years and presided over extraordinary economic growth and a reduction of inequality praised even by his critics, announced that he was resigning the presidency under duress, with implicit threats from the Bolivian military. Morales later made clear that he viewed these events as a classic right-wing military coup of the kind that has plagued the continent for decades, explaining that he was removed from his position by force and then ultimately pressured by a police mutiny and military threats to flee his own country.

    Morales went to Mexico, where he was granted political asylum, and lived under heavy security in Mexico City until being granted refugee status in Argentina. On December 3, I sat with Morales in Mexico City for an hourlong interview that was wide-ranging in scope: not only about the events that led to his removal and exile from Bolivia, but also broader trends in regional and global politics, as well as the role played by the U.S. in Latin America.

  4. ADL International Leadership Award Presented to Sacha Baron Cohen at Never Is Now 2019

    Sacha Baron Cohen is the well-deserved recipient of ADL’s International Leadership Award, which goes to exceptional individuals who combine professional success with a profound personal commitment to community involvement and to crossing borders and barriers with a message of diversity and equal opportunity.

    Over 100 years ago Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote: “Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant.” Through his alter egos, many of whom represent anti-Semites, racists and neo-Nazis, Baron Cohen shines a piercing light on people’s ignorance and biases.

  5. Stuart Langridge - You really don’t need all that JavaScript, I promise

    JavaScript is your behaviour layer; the way to add interactivity to your sites, to provide a slick and delightful user experience, to make everything fast and easy and clean. But at some point everything changed: the tail started to wag the dog instead and development became Javascript-first. We’ll talk about how you maybe shouldn’t rely on JS as much as you’re told to, and some practical strategies for how to build sites without reaching for a JS framework as first, last, and only tool for making the web happen.

    Recorded at: JSCamp Romania 2019, www.jscamp.ro

  6. Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros can’t exactly slip into an office building unnoticed: Clad in the same clothes they’d worn at a concert the night before, the L.A. band’s 10 ragtag misfits would have fit in far more seamlessly at, say, Burning Man. Seeming to exist in a blissed-out alternate universe — during the wonderful "Home," singer Jade Castrinos exclaims, "Good morning, everybody!" as the clock behind her reads 2:10 p.m. — this is a band whose performances beg to be seen as well as heard, not to mention shot through a wide-angle lens.

    The biggest band to play a Tiny Desk Concert - the 10 members of The Magnetic Zeroes played three songs from their debut album (Up From Below).

    The set included: - Janglin - Home - 40 Day Daydream

  7. The Right to a Future, with Naomi Klein and Greta Thunberg

    We are restreaming last night’s event in HD for those who were unable to watch live.

    The Intercept invites you to watch a special event in New York City hosted by Intercept senior correspondent Naomi Klein, author of the forthcoming book “On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal,” and headlined by trailblazing climate activist Greta Thunberg, author of “No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference.”

    Together with youth leaders Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, Xiye Bastida, and Vic Barrett, as well as Indigenous Amazon leader Tuntiak Katan, Thunberg and Klein helped us envision a just and sustainable future, confront our climate emergency, and discuss the emerging cross-generational, transnational movement — including people of all races, classes, and backgrounds — that is our best hope for a sustainable planet.

    Both a celebration of youth activism and a reflection on how to break through the political and economic barriers preventing meaningful climate action, “The Right to a Future” brought together a singular group of environmental leaders who are on the forefront of the battle to secure a thriving future for many generations to come.

    “The Right to a Future” kicks off a week of climate coverage, starting September 15, by Intercept reporters working across our beats. The effort is part of Covering C…
