Wisconsin is failing to keep farm pollution from fouling its water, says the leader of a nonprofit that represents conservation officers charged with enforcing state standards.“Failing not because conservationists and farmers don’t know what to do but because society does not expect agriculture to protect the environment,” Jim VandenBrook, director of the Wisconsin Land and Water Conservation Association, said in a recent letter discussing a landmark study the group has completed. VandenBrook has never before made such a stark statement, and it saddens him to do so now, he said in an interview with the Wisconsin State Journal.But he said there is “stunning” evidence showing the state has lost ground in efforts to prevent manure and manufactured fertilizer from making drinking water a health hazard for nearly 100,000 families, and leaving portions of more than 1,000 of Wisconsin’s lakes and streams with unnatural growths of weeds and bacteria than can … [Read more...] about Failure and a call for patience amid rising farm pollution of state waters

But YouTuber Chris Hodgkinson found himself in that situation recently, as he explains in the video above. Hodgkinson, better known to his audience as IAmPattyJack, is a video game pundit and critic. He has become famous for one of his ongoing series, “This is the Worst Game Ever,” where he plays bad games and provides commentary. His most recent entry was a video on Super Seducer, a game that teaches men how to pick up women and has been at the center of controversy lately. That playthrough caught the attention of developer Richard La Ruina and his team. “[La Ruina] criticized my idea that people should be themselves when they’re talking to women, which I think is probably the right thing to do,” Hodgkinson said. “He left a comment on my video when it had 150 views, which I thought was weird.” This led to a Twitter … [Read more...] about Super Seducer dev under fire after DMCA takedown hits YouTuber, Twitter fight
