The title section of this post refers to today’s activites at James and Sons, but I also have some important links and quality infographics to share. On the subject of sharing, I hope that some of you are encouraged to share this post.
ADVERTS AND IMAGING
Today was productive, but not as productive as it might have been due to the fact that my efforts on the imaging front were interrupted by the need to send a couple of very basic adverts to the Diss Express and the Bury Free Press respectively about collector’s fair. A copy of one of the ads is below and I will provide links to the original word documents for both…
The imaging workload was nicely varied, featuring most kinds of item we sell save for militaria…
The coin lots I choose to share come in the form of high resolution scans…
The stamps were all in albums and hence required the use of the camera…
EPHEMERA AND TOYS
These items were also done with the camera, and apart from a few football programs I will sharing the full range. The items categorised as toys are actually as you will see collector’s models – not intended to be played with…
To end the section on today at work, some more scans, this time of postcards…
I do not have as many links as sometimes, but they are all very important, starting with…
CECIL THE LION
This is a story about a self-indulgent rich bastard (I make no apologies for the strong language – I do not often resort to it) from Minnesota named Walter James Palmer and an African icon. The circumstances of this particular piece of “trophy hunting” – Mr Palmer apparently has a long history of such activities – have generated it vast international publicity. The lion was decoyed out of the protected area in which it lived by bait, shot with a crossbow and ultimately finished off with a rifle – all so a rich American could indulge his perverted sense of fun. I have two links for further information about the story:
1)This from avaaz
2)And this article in a newspaper not often cited by this blog – The Telegraph.
AN UPDATE ON “ROOSH V”
The campaign to prevent “Roosh V” from being allowed into Canada continues to gather momentum – here is the latest news.
Just a single link here, to the Voting Reform Declaration.
VOX POLITICAL ON DISABILITY
Two excellent pieces from the ever reliable Mike Sivier today, both on the subject of disability:
1)This one about the assessment system as orchestrated by the vile American company Unum.
2)This horror story about a case of discrimination by association – sacked for being a family member of a disabled person.
A NEW DISCOVERY COURTESY OF A GREAT SUPPORTER
My first infographic comes with a link this article on Discover…
Next, a return to the Telegraph – unlike the story which I am told was big and bold this correction was tiny and in the bottom corner of a page, so I am giving it a bit of extra exposure!
Finally to end this post two excellent infographics relating to the Conservative Party…
