Executed by Electric Chair: “Innocent” Black kid of 14…
Trial lasted less than two hours and the lethal verdict was handed down during the day in Alcolu, South Carolina.
Chair’s straps didn’t fit the 95-pound teen.
That was George Junius Stinney.
He was confined for 81 days without any support: Following Stinney’s arrest, Stinney’s father was fired from his job and Stinney’s parents and siblings were given the choice of leaving town or being lynched.
This execution and mock trial took place in 1944.
70 years later, supporters are pushing for a new trial.
U.S. – JANUARY 21, 2014: South Carolina boy executed in 1944 may get new trial

Supporters of George Stinney on Jan. 21 planned to ask a judge to open a new trial, arguing the evidence used to convict and execute the 14-year-old boy in 1944 was lacking.

While a new trial is considered a long shot, it could spur hundreds of other appeals. It wasn’t clear when the judge would rule.

Alcolu, South Carolina

George Stinney, a black teen, was found guilty in 1944 of killing two white girls aged 7 and 11 in Alcolu, South Carolina.

Stinney’s supporters say there was never enough evidence to convict him of the crimes at the time, and that a proper investigation was never conducted by authorities due to racism.

George Stinney was the youngest person executed in the U.S. in the past 100 years when he was put to death by the electric chair at 14 in 1944. Newspaper reports from the time said the chair's straps didn't fit the 95-pound teen.COPYRIGHT 2014 REUTERS

George Stinney was the youngest person executed in the U.S. in the past 100 years when he was put to death by the electric chair at 14 in 1944.

Newspaper reports from the time said the chair’s straps didn’t fit the 95-pound teen.

Most evidence against Stinney, including his supposed confession, have vanished in the 70 years since the case.

Lawyers working on his behalf said the teen was taken from his parents and questioned without an attorney. They plan to present several sworn statements to make their case for a new trial.

 “This is a horrific case… Whether justice is 70 years old or one year old or one month old, we think justice needs to be done.” STEVEN MCKENZIE, ATTORNEY FOR THE FAMILY OF GEORGE STINNEY

If their appeal for a new trial fails, supporters plan to petition the state to pardon Stinney.

(Reblogged from amehaya) youurlove:

Junius Stinney was the youngest person in America to be executed on death row in 1944 at age 14.

He was quickly accused by the (white police) of ‘killing’ two little (white girls) with lack of evidence.

His conviction and sentencing opened and closed in one day.

There were no witnesses called and there was no transcript of the trial details and black people were not allowed inside the courtroom during that time.
[I always repost this because i don’t want anyone to forget about him!]

Following Stinney’s arrest, Stinney’s father was fired from his job.

Stinney’s parents and siblings were given the choice of leaving town or being lynched.

The family was forced to flee, leaving George Stinney with no support during his 81-day confinement and trial, which lasted barely two hours.

How 200 Calories Looks Like? Served separately in dishes…

WiseGEEK posted this July 14, 2013:

Photographic Series Showing What 200 Calories Looks Like in Different Foods

See part 2 of this blog by clicking HERE!

WiseGEEK just conducted a very visual and informative study and presented a photo series, which compares what 200 calories actually look like in different foods.

You’d think that even with Summer coming up, a handful of gummy bears couldn’t hurt much, right..?

Well, turns out, just 51 gram of those gives you the same amount of calories as nearly 600 grams of broccoli or 3 whole eggs would. And now be honest – which of those amounts sounds more alike a proper and filling meal to you?

(Stay clear from the dish of green peas: Too much quantity followed by plenty of gases…)

The study compares 71 different foods, and is originally organized going from low to high calorie density.

You can really tell how the quantities are getting smaller towards the end of the list!

Statistically an average adult needs 2000-2500 calories a day, but this, of course, differs depending on how physically active you are.

So for those who don’t hesitate to sweat in the gym, a spoonful of peanut butter is a lot less of a sin!

Google Glass Sex: You must have a few questions? 

Two articles commenting on this Glass Sex.

ADAM CLARK ESTES posted on GIZMODO this Jan. 20, 2014

There’s a Google Glass Sex App Now. We Have Some Questions.

There's a Google Glass Sex App Now. We Have Some Questions.1

Porn and Google Glass Are Natural Bedfellows

It’s been obvious from the very beginning hat the ultimate Google Glass experience would somehow involve hot, sweaty sex. And now, thanks to an upcoming app, the star of that hot, sweaty Sexperience can be you!

Sex with Google Glass is exactly what it sounds like: a Google Glass app for sexy sex-havers.

More specifically, it enables you to do all kinds of things while banging. You can film the carnal action from both your and your partner’s points-of-view and watch it right after—but only right after, since the app deletes the video after 5 hours.

You can control your sex soundtrack. You can even ask Google which position you should try next.

On that note, we have so many questions about Sex with Glass:

  1. How much planning does Sex with Glass require?
  2. Are accessories encouraged?
  3. Which ones?
  4. Is it possible to install apps sexily as a couple?
  5. When is the best time to put on Glass? Before or after undressing?
  6. Should Glass remain on your head at all times? Or can you try selfie mode?
  7. How does one incorporate Glass into foreplay?
  8. Is it possible to undress sexily while wearing Glass?
  9. Is it possible to do anything sexily while wearing Glass?
  10. How do turn-by-turn directions work?
  11. Which custom head gestures are the most fun?
  12. Does tethering a device to your smartphone during sex count as bondage play?
  13. Does Glass understand safe words?
  14. What exactly happens when you yell, “OK Glass, pull out?” (Which is an actual command in the app.)
  15. Do you have to listen to the same music soundtrack as your partner (climax) and can you pick a personal track?
  16. Why do you have to watch your Glass sex video immediately after the sex? Wouldn’t you want to save that for a rainy day?
  17. Why would anybody actually want to see their partner’s point-of-view while having sex?
  18. Isn’t that incredibly weird?
  19. What if you get a text from your mom during sex?
  20. What if you think about the possibility of getting a text from your mom during sex?

Well, that’s a lot to think about!

The makers of Sex with Glass say that you can get an iPhone app preview while the company is developing the Glass app. However, when we surrendered our email address in exchange for a download link, the download link never arrived. So who knows, our questions may never actually be answered. But hey, maybe it’s better that way.

Special thanks to Eric Limer who contributed a few of his own questions about Sex with Glass.

Google Glass Sex App Lets You Watch, Record Yourself In The Act

 Posted in The Huffington Post this Jan.21/2014

It was only a matter of time before the voyeuristic world of Google Glass collided with sex.

“Sex with Google Glass,” a new app for the wearable technology, lets you watch — and record — yourself having sex from all angles and even “see what your partner can see,” the app’s website claims.

The app operates on command and works like this: Just say, “OK Glass, it’s time,” and Glass will stream to you and your partner what you each can see; when you’re ready to finish just say, “OK Glass, pull out.”

Ah, modern romance.

“We are trying to change the way you experience something personal. It’s about seeing two perspectives, at the same time. Seamlessly,” Sherif Maktabi, one of the app’s developers and a product design student at London’s Central Saint Martins art college, told The Huffington Post via email.

The idea germinated at the Google Glass and Wearables Hackathon in London in November 2013.

Developers there had one day with the smart glasses to create applications, so Maktabi and his friends asked themselves, “How can we make sex more awesome with Google Glass?”

Their multi-view streaming creation can be synced up to a smart lamp or home device to control lighting, music and even lessons from the Kama Sutra — for that command just say, “OK glass, give me ideas.”

In case you are particularly proud of your performance, the app can also record a video of your horizontal hustle. No need to worry about your homemade sex tape getting leaked: The app will automatically delete your footage after five hours.

“Some people find what we do repulsive,” Maktabi told The Guardian. “But a lot of other people — and I am basing this from the emails we are getting online — really desire to try this.”

The developers plan to launch a free iPhone version, called “Glance,” in early February ahead of the Google Glass release later this year.

“It’s the closest thing to experiencing ‘Sex with Glass’ on iPhone. We are learning on the fly. It’s still an experiment, and we will be publishing more work as we go. You can sign up on Glassandsex.com to know as soon as it’s out,” Maktabi told HuffPost.

While Google has held a strictly anti-porn and anti-nudity stance for Glass, prohibiting users from searching for or watching porn on the device, that apparently doesn’t mean you can’t create your own.
