    2006 Youtube Video Awards: Most Adorable Now this video, I wasn’t really aware of. I usually pride myself in being up to date with videos. Anyway, this video is really nice. To think that a student did this for his master’s thesis was nice to know, since Youtube prides itself in being the platform for showing amateur videos (although this video is pretty semi-proffesional since it is for a master’s thesis). It kinda reminds me of the Ice Age character who’s always after the Acorn. Well, I hope you enjoy this video, it really is pretty cute.

It’s the unselfish character of George Bailey that has made this movie a true tradition. The sacrifices at George makes to help the people of Bedford Falls. George forgoes his…

The object of my affection, as well as the affection of the Iraqi people, is Shada Hassoun. Families had been gathered in front of television sets across Iraq every Friday night for four months cheering on one of their own. Hasoon won the competition with 7 million votes coming in via telephone and text messages from across the Middle East. The cheering crossed sectarian lines. In the northern — and Kurdish —…
