Encouraging our kids to gamble

Posted on by 3,468 views

footie1I settled down to watch Everton play Liverpool. Good game, but what disturbed me were the adverts for internet gambling sites popping up in the background. How can we convince our children that gambling is bad when these ads are the backdrops to our sports heroes? Or is it OK now to gamble?

BBC, why the shaky camera?

Posted on by 3,368 views

Last night was my first night at home after several trips. I love watching documentaries on British TV. I started watching a program on Channel 4 on the bank bailout business. The content was good, but it was spoilt by the silly fashion of using a handheld camera, and moving it around with no reason, and focusing in and out too. After a while I realised there is a Panorama documentary on BBC1. I switched over, and you guessed it: same childish moving, rotating, and defocusing of the camera.

I wish the producers, directors and cameramen would all grow up and use their brains (and a tripod) instead of simply following fashion, good or bad.
