The Lead: Protests in Iran

Protests in Iran have been raging for over two weeks, seemingly led by college students in Tehran. The death toll is in the dozens, although news outlets vary on the exact number. 

Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Ahamenei accused the United States and Israel of stoking these protests. 

“I say explicitly that these riots and this insecurity were a design by the US and the occupying, fake Zionist regime and those who are paid by them,” he said on Monday. 

That may be true but that is not why protesters came. They came to protest the death of a 22 year-old woman who died in police custody after she was arrested for wearing an “improper” hijab, or head covering. Her family says that she was beaten but a video released by Iranian police shows her collapsing in the lobby of a police station after walking around, seemingly fine. 

Whether she was beaten or not may not be relevant. Many women do not want to live in a society where they can be arrested for not covering their heads and they are making that known. It is dangerous for them to do this. Many are posting videos and images of their uncovered heads to punctuate what it is that they want. 

Shopping on TikTok

I was recently trying to explain the Home Shopping Network to my children and they didn’t get it. This they will get: Shopping on TikTok. 

The Financial Times reports that TikTok will partner with TalkShopLive to launch a live shopping program where you will see something and be able to buy it straight from the app. This already exists in Asia.

You Have The Right To Remain Singing

In California, your dope rhymes cannot be used against you in a criminal case. Apparently, this was a problem. 

The new Decriminalizing Artistic Expression Act limits the way that an artist’s lyrics can be used against them in criminal cases. The prosecution has to prove that the lyrics were written around the time of a crime, have specificity to the crime and contain “factual details” about the crime that were previously unknown to the public. 

Rappers Drakeo the Ruler and Young Thug and Gunna both experienced this when their lyrics were used against them in cases ranging from murder to conspiracy. Drakeo the Ruler was on trial for murdering one person and plotting to murder another, rapper named RJ. In one of his songs, he says this: “I’m ridin’ around town with a tommy gun and a Jag and you can disregard the yelling, RJ tied up in the bag.” So you can see why that might be considered interesting evidence but not anymore. 

Artists say that this is a protection of free speech.

News By The Numbers

2. That is how many pro fishermen were disqualified from a championship after they were caught putting weights in the fish they caught. Video of them being caught here. This isn’t the first time these two had a scandal. Last year they were disqualified because one of them failed a polygraph test, which is apparently common at fishing competitions. I did not know that. 

$1.3 million. That is the fine Kim Kardashian will pay to the SEC as a fine for promoting a cryptocurrency without disclosing that she was being paid for it. 

60%. That is how many young people say that they are scared about their generation’s future, according to a recent survey. Researchers link this to the pandemic. 

Copping A Squat

Researchers say that sitting to pee is the best way to go, even if you’ve got a penis. In fact, standing to pee is something men do not do all over the world. It’s a Western thing. 

Researchers say that sitting helps empty the bladder more fully, which can result in fewer complications such as cystitis and bladder stones. 

Sitting is also a sure fire way to avoid splash back, which is not only gross but unsanitary. So you know, take a load off. Get it!?
