    Alexis Sánchez as a star in FIFA 2017 Confederations Cup advertisement [EN, CZ subs]

A story about the golden generation which won a first title for us. And Confederation cup as well. Where? I’ll tell you… In Russia Do you remember it? Like it was yesterday. First round was hard.

    Why Are There SO Many Confederate Monuments?

    This is the Appomattox statue in Alexandria Virginia, a monument constructed in 1889 to honor Alexandria’s Confederate dead in the US Civil War. Since then, it has been at the center of debates about the use of public space. People wrestle with the decision to honor the history of those who supported the Southern Confederacy’s secession from the Union, which was largely in order to continue racialized slavery. Opponents have argued that the statue stands as a testament to intolerance and racism, and that although the statue is still privately owned by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the fact that it’s situated on public land means that it should…

    Lessons Learned: The Articles of Confederation

    Do you think it is easy to write a constitution for a country? Did you ever wonder why the United States has a constitution that has lasted for more than two centuries while other countries have failed to find one that works? I’m Jim Lindsay, and this is Lessons Learned. Our topic today is the Articles of Confederation, which went into effect on March 1, 1781, when Maryland became the 13th and final colony to ratify it. Most of us know all about the major battles and events of the American Revolution. April 19, 1775 saw Paul Revere’s midnight ride and the battles at Lexington and Concord. July 4,, 1776…

    Andrew Yang on Universal Basic Income and Measuring Our Economic Health

    -Thanks for making the time for us. So, you are — You’re in this thing. You’re polling higher than some governors, some congressmen, senators. And a lot of people, I think it’s safe to say, did not know who you were a very short time ago. -Yes, that’s fair to say. -And you’re running on this idea of a universal basic income, which is giving every American $1,000 a month. And are you worried that, because you’re polling higher that as other candidates get desperate, they’ll start offering $1,100 a month? -Well, that would be a version of victory, Seth. I’ve said for a while that I’m either going to…

    Darius Simpson & Scout Bostley – “Lost Voices” (CUPSI 2015)

    The first day I realized I was black, it was 2000, we had just learned about blacks for the first time in 2nd grade. At recess, all the white kids chased me into the woods chanting slave. My mother said I refused to come out for three hours, said she thinks I was lost in the trees, but I just needed to be closer to my roots. As a woman, having a boyfriend is a battle If 70% of us are abused in a lifetime what is the number of men doing it? The answer is not 1 man running faster than light to complete a mission and that is…

    Sailing into History – Sailors of USS Constitution Part 1

    When I give tours on board Constitution, people want to hear a story. People want to hear the history. People want to hear why she is still around and where she came from to begin with. I feel like it’s the foundation of the Navy. This is where the Navy started. When I first joined the Navy, I told the recruiter I wanted to be a history teacher. He said, “History? Okay, Boatswain’s Mate is the right job for you.” During the War of 1812, a Boatswain’s Mate’s job would have been sanding the deck to get the deck perfectly smooth so the guns don’t chaff against the deck and…

    The Black Legend, Native Americans, and Spaniards: Crash Course US History #1

    Hi I’m John Green, and this is Crash Course U.S. History! No, Stan. That’s not gonna work, actually. I mean, we’re talking about the 16th century today, when this was neither united nor states. By the way, this globe reflects the fact that I believe that Alaskan statehood is illegitimate! In fact, we’re going to call this whole show “U.S. History” but inevitably it is going to involve other parts of the world and also, not to brag, a small part of the moon. Sorry, we can be a little bit self-aggrandizing sometimes, here in America. So to begin U.S. history, we’re not going to talk about the United states…
