iReport roundtable: Join us Thursday at 2:30 p.m. ET

We're looking forward to talking to  everyone at today's iReport roundtable. It's been a great day, so far, at  iReport.com and we've gotten some very exciting stories:

 

* visitingiran shared amazing photos of the huge crowds of people rallying in Tehran, Iran, ahead of the country's election. More than 130,000 people have already looked at her photos.

 

* New Zealand  author wehavent sent a video of American and Canadian tourists trying to use kiwi slang. The results were pretty funny.

 

* Closer to home (but just barely) scottt79 shared his 5,000 mile Missouri-to-Alaska journey that ended with a surprise wedding proposal. If that wasn't exciting enough, the entire adventure was fueled by waste vegetable oil.

 

We'll open comments at 2:30 p.m. ET. I can't wait to hear your ideas for what we can do during these roundtable talks.

While we're waiting for everyone to arrive, I want to start by asking how we should use these sessions.

I think they've been a great way to get to know each other and to clear the air about some things, but I think that's just a start.

Anybody got any ideas?

"How should we use these sessions?"

 

Yes to: Ideas, sharing, thoughts, congrats, comments.

 

No to: "I've been getting nasty comments". Sadly, (very sadly) this will happen and we can only ignore them - ignoring WILL make them go away, as DavidW and others have said, over and again.

 

Let's be constructive and help each other where we can  - I love the idea of "head to heads" and joint reporting for example, and the photo ideas.

 

Just my bit!

Hi everyone, we were just having a conversation about watching videos in unison and what could be done with this concept. One notable example of this that has been making the rounds is inbflat. You play all the videos at the same time and they kind of make sense. We could do that here! What do you think? For a little more background, we were just talking over here about an iReport dance party, making rhythms or even playing time-lapse videos at the same time. What other ideas can you think of? Surely you've got something cooler. There's a lot of potential for this idea.

Hi @KCRep - you're right, the number of iReports on CNN is a little bit lower than it was last month, but not by a lot. The number varies over time depending on what's happening in the news and on the site. We're not making any big changes to our approach, just witnessing the natural ebb and flow of the news.

 

We're always on the lookout for interesting, high quality iReports to put into the CNN mix. If you spot one we missed, please let us know by sending a note to contact@ireport.com, or messaging us on Twitter at @cnnireport. Thanks!

I really enjoy using animoto for photo sharing.

It is quick, easy and views well on ireport.

If you don't like the first take, you can hit remix and it will create another slide show. You can remix as many times as you choose, until you are happy.

It would be beneficial to viewers in my humble opinion if CNN would take a real objective look on healthcare insurance specifically single payer. I have done some extensice research on this issue and wonder why it is not giving more coverage  in CNN's entire debate. Do you think that some producers somehow inhibit the discussiong because of advertisers?

Thank you!

 

I rather suspect that people who come here (to the roundtable) would like comments on their iReports, but genuinely constructive ones - not the nonsense we get sometimes on the main site.

 

Trouble is, I think people here don't want to be seen to be "pushing" their videos - but those of us who attend the roundtable tend to be the sensible ones, so asking for genuine comment on their iReports, both from CNN staffers and other "sensible" iReporters.

 

I really like the idea of having some CNN news crew here - lots of iReports would be much, much better by the simple use of the "thirds" rules, "fluffy's" on  microphones, tree branches in pix (for distance effect) etc ...

 

Oh, oh, I know you're going to ask me to do this ... aren't you!

@Nsaidi - yes, zdan's comments are very helpful (and I hope they're well followed) but I feel some otherwise great iReports may be spoilt by not following certain "rules" - rules which most people don't know exist.

Not a complaint (!) just a suggestion!

I have lost a lot of inspiration since the site has become more homogeneous. I find that there are less interesting debates and dialogues on posts now (but not all). But maybe I'm just not looking hard enough. I still would like to see a general amnesty for ex ireporters. I know that would make your job harder david, but we lost a lot of talented ireporters and although many have moved on and won't come back, there are those who I think would appreciate another opportunity to add their great perspectives once again to this unique forum.

@ireport team..didn't we toss around the idea of a face off about a subject..for example..EWillies puts up a video on the subject of the day..then I can do a video disagreeing with him..but putting his name in the video that I am challenging his views and then he can submit another...a debate of the day!

@MelissaF hey great idea, we love that.

 

We were just having a conversation about the idea of "passing" a topic or idea from iReporter to iReporter.

 

For example, one person trying to top another, or an ongoing chain of responses from one person to person. What could we do to get a chain going? I can see us displaying a chain of videos one after the other and you could play them in sequence.

@ChrisMorrow we had some "thrify & thriving" fashion show iReports a while ago but we could try again. We also do get quite a bit of pet iReports. I like these ideas you're sending.

 

We've also been toying with the idea on occasion of iReporters "passing" something to each other in a video format, so you have a string of videos of people passing something around. You can see a few of these on the Internet. What would we pass, and what would we do?

What if we had people send a short greeting from their country in their language? Like just people at one moment, at the same time? I'm just throwing that out there.

 

The inauguration could have been a cool opportunity for simultaneous streaming. I wonder if people watching one thing or one event, or doing one thing, could show us how it looks from different perspectives.

 

Like maybe even record yourself using the new iPhone for the first time. I dunno.

YOUR RIGHTS AS A CITIZEN TO GROW, BUY, SELL, TRADE, AND USE CANNABIS

BY THE BLACK VULCAN

 

THE TEXAS CONSTITUTION

 

ARTICLE 1. BILL OF RIGHTS

 

Sec. 1.  FREEDOM AND SOVEREIGNTY OF STATE. Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States, and the maintenance of our free institutions and the perpetuity of the Union depend upon the preservation of the right of local self-government, unimpaired to all the States.

Sec. 2.  INHERENT POLITICAL POWER; REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT. All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient.

Sec. 3.  EQUAL RIGHTS. All free men, when they form a social compact, have equal rights, and no man, or set of men, is entitled to exclusive separate public emoluments, or privileges, but in consideration of public services.

Sec. 3a.  EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW. Equality under the law shall not be denied or abridged because of sex, race, color, creed, or national origin. This amendment is self-operative.

 

(Added Nov. 7, 1972.)

 

 

Sec. 4.  RELIGIOUS TESTS. No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office, or public trust, in this State; nor shall any one be excluded from holding office on account of his religious sentiments, provided he acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being.

Sec. 5.  WITNESSES NOT DISQUALIFIED BY RELIGIOUS BELIEFS; OATHS AND AFFIRMATIONS. No person shall be disqualified to give evidence in any of the Courts of this State on account of his religious opinions, or for the want of any religious belief, but all oaths or affirmations shall be administered in the mode most binding upon the conscience, and shall be taken subject to the pains and penalties of perjury.

 

Sec. 6.  FREEDOM OF WORSHIP. All men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences. No man shall be compelled to attend, erect or support any place of worship, or to maintain any ministry against his consent. No human authority ought, in any case whatever, to control or interfere with the rights of conscience in matters of religion, and no preference shall ever be given by law to any religious society or mode of worship. But it shall be the duty of the Legislature to pass such laws as may be necessary to protect equally every religious denomination in the peaceable enjoyment of its own mode of public worship.

Sec. 7.  APPROPRIATIONS FOR SECTARIAN PURPOSES. No money shall be appropriated, or drawn from the Treasury for the benefit of any sect, or religious society, theological or religious seminary; nor shall property belonging to the State be appropriated for any such purposes.

 

Sec. 8.  FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND PRESS; LIBEL. Every person shall be at liberty to speak, write or publish his opinions on any subject, being responsible for the abuse of that privilege; and no law shall ever be passed curtailing the liberty of speech or of the press. In prosecutions for the publication of papers, investigating the conduct of officers, or men in public capacity, or when the matter published is proper for public information, the truth thereof may be given in evidence. And in all indictments for libels, the jury shall have the right to determine the law and the facts, under the direction of the court, as in other cases.

 

Sec. 9.  SEARCHES AND SEIZURES. The people shall be secure in their persons, houses, papers and possessions, from all unreasonable seizures or searches, and no warrant to search any place, or to seize any person or thing, shall issue without describing them as near as may be, nor without probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation.

 

Sec. 10.  RIGHTS OF ACCUSED IN CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS. In all criminal prosecutions the accused shall have a speedy public trial by an impartial jury. He shall have the right to demand the nature and cause of the accusation against him, and to have a copy thereof. He shall not be compelled to give evidence against himself, and shall have the right of being heard by himself or counsel, or both, shall be confronted by the witnesses against him and shall have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, except that when the witness resides out of the State and the offense charged is a violation of any of the anti-trust laws of this State, the defendant and the State shall have the right to produce and have the evidence admitted by deposition, under such rules and laws as the Legislature may hereafter provide; and no person shall be held to answer for a criminal offense, unless on an indictment of a grand jury, except in cases in which the punishment is by fine or imprisonment, otherwise than in the penitentiary, in cases of impeachment, and in cases arising in the army or navy, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger.

 

(Amended Nov. 5, 1918.)

 

 

Sec. 11.  BAIL. All prisoners shall be bailable by sufficient sureties, unless for capital offenses, when the proof is evident; but this provision shall not be so construed as to prevent bail after indictment found upon examination of the evidence, in such manner as may be prescribed by law.

 

Sec. 11a.  MULTIPLE CONVICTIONS; DENIAL OF BAIL. (a) Any person (1) accused of a felony less than capital in this State, who has been theretofore twice convicted of a felony, the second conviction being subsequent to the first, both in point of time of commission of the offense and conviction therefor, (2) accused of a felony less than capital in this State, committed while on bail for a prior felony for which he has been indicted, (3) accused of a felony less than capital in this State involving the use of a deadly weapon after being convicted of a prior felony, or (4) accused of a violent or sexual offense committed while under the supervision of a criminal justice agency of the State or a political subdivision of the State for a prior felony, after a hearing, and upon evidence substantially showing the guilt of the accused of the offense in (1) or (3) above, of the offense committed while on bail in (2) above, or of the offense in (4) above committed while under the supervision of a criminal justice agency of the State or a political subdivision of the State for a prior felony, may be denied bail pending trial, by a district judge in this State, if said order denying bail pending trial is issued within seven calendar days subsequent to the time of incarceration of the accused; provided, however, that if the accused is not accorded a trial upon the accusation under (1) or (3) above, the accusation and indictment used under (2) above, or the accusation or indictment used under (4) above within sixty (60) days from the time of his incarceration upon the accusation, the order denying bail shall be automatically set aside, unless a continuance is obtained upon the motion or request of the accused; provided, further, that the right of appeal to the Court of Criminal Appeals of this State is expressly accorded the accused for a review of any judgment or order made hereunder, and said appeal shall be given preference by the Court of Criminal Appeals.

(b)  In this section:

(1)  "Violent offense" means:

(A)  murder;

Sec. 11b.  VIOLATION OF CONDITION OF RELEASE PENDING TRIAL; DENIAL OF BAIL. Any person who is accused in this state of a felony or an offense involving family violence, who is released on bail pending trial, and whose bail is subsequently revoked or forfeited for a violation of a condition of release may be denied bail pending trial if a judge or magistrate in this state determines by a preponderance of the evidence at a subsequent hearing that the person violated a condition of release related to the safety of a victim of the alleged offense or to the safety of the community.

 

(Added Nov. 8, 2005; amended Nov. 6, 2007.)

 

Sec. 12.  HABEAS CORPUS. The writ of habeas corpus is a writ of right, and shall never be suspended. The Legislature shall enact laws to render the remedy speedy and effectual.

Sec. 15.  RIGHT OF TRIAL BY JURY. The right of trial by jury shall remain inviolate. The Legislature shall pass such laws as may be needed to regulate the same, and to maintain its purity and efficiency. Provided, that the Legislature may provide for the temporary commitment, for observation and/or treatment, of mentally ill persons not charged with a criminal offense, for a period of time not to exceed ninety (90) days, by order of the County Court without the necessity of a trial by jury.

 

(Amended Aug. 24, 1935.)

 

 

Sec. 15-a.  COMMITMENT OF PERSONS OF UNSOUND MIND. No person shall be committed as a person of unsound mind except on competent medical or psychiatric testimony.

Such laws may provide for a waiver of trial by jury, in cases where the person under inquiry has not been charged with the commission of a criminal offense, by the concurrence of the person under inquiry, or his next of kin, and an attorney ad litem appointed by a judge of either the County or Probate Court of the county where the trial is being held, and shall provide for a method of service of notice of such trial upon the person under inquiry and of his right to demand a trial by jury.

 

(Added Nov. 6, 1956.)

 

 

Sec. 16.  BILLS OF ATTAINDER; EX POST FACTO OR RETROACTIVE LAWS; IMPAIRING OBLIGATION OF CONTRACTS. No bill of attainder, ex post facto law, retroactive law, or any law impairing the obligation of contracts, shall be made.

This section does not prohibit an agreement with another state providing for the confinement of inmates of this State in the penal or correctional facilities of that state.

 

(Amended Nov. 5, 1985.)

The failure or inability of any person to provide a right or service enumerated in this section may not be used by a defendant in a criminal case as a ground for appeal or post-conviction writ of habeas corpus. A victim or guardian or legal representative of a victim has standing to enforce the rights enumerated in this section but does not have standing to participate as a party in a criminal proceeding or to contest the disposition of any charge.

 

(Added Nov. 7, 1989.)

I just wanted to state that comparing what is going on in Iran to the elections in the US is obsured!  Iran is a country where people have little to no rights. How can we ignore the fact that every individual speaking out in Tehran, can be taken, beated, killed without trial, without cause, just for speaking out.  We are a country who has interferred in so many international matters, why shouldn't we interfer to save human lives...to support people who have no support, who for the first time in 30 years are standing up and saying we are here, we matter, help us.  How can we just watch youth get beaten in the streets and do nothing.  It's in humane.

Panoramic approach Honduran reality?

     In policy - they say is known how the things begin, but never how they will finish.  Who camouflage themselves to give the coup d’état to overthrow the president of the Republic, Jose Manuel (Mel) Zelaya Rosales, never imagined disowning world-wide that this them happen nor the serious consequences for Honduras and its populations.

. At this point, with president Zelaya in the exile, our country is practically isolated of the international community, and in fact surrounded commercial and politically by its neighbors of the System of Central American Integration (SICA), who have sealed their borders.

What we know, this world-wide diplomatic action by ricochet to a coup of State is unpublished at Central American, Latin American and universal level.

It denotes a step more in the evolution of the international right, since the rupture of the basic principles of the democratic system is not admitted, mainly those of the organic separation of the functions of the powers in the State and the effective subordination of the troops to the civil power, flesh in the Executive. Against this background, any State that admitted the breaking of these principles in another State, legitimizing it with its recognition, would seat for itself the precedent with which, at any time in the future, it could be excused - not to say justified- the consummation of a similar fact in his country.  That is, in fact, the fundamental reason of the total rejection to the coup d’état of the 28 of June/09.

Of there the position in this respect of the United States and of the rest of the American states, of the O.A.S., the European Union, the Latin American regional integration and United Nations SICA, ALBA, Group of River, and each country, in individual, just like of the economic and commercial nuclei like the G-8, the G-16 and the G-22.

The form in which they have been developed and they continue being developed the events the inside area remains in the limb for Honduran, because the local mass media ignore their informative obligation, by collusion pluses and official coercion the minuses.

   In this sense, never a so deep and massive violation of the freedom of expression had been taken place in Honduras, due to the governmental intervention, nor at the darkest times of frank dictatorship, and which now it locks up to the Honduran society in an authentic bubble, which constitutes an unquestionable case of the protagonist of the “mediates large estate”, as its consubstantial actor of the coup d’état. This chapter of destruction of the constitutional rights to inform and to being informed, that it also violates the Inter-American Democratic Letter and the Universal Declaration of the Human rights, not only affects to the Honduran media but the international media, and, therefore, to all the world-wide population that it has right that is to say how much it happens in our country.

Before the consummation of as much upsetting and the forceful world-wide sentence, the Honduran society would have to ask itself: And soon, what?

Let's ask....How many people were paid off to vote yes on the Health Care Plan..1..2...3...4..10..

CAN WE ALL SAY THE WHOLE SENATE!!!!This country is turning into greed..and again like I said before...Money is the "ROOT OF ALL EVIL"...this is from my previous comments...

 

The Major Question is "Will the President take part in this so called Health care" will the president and all the other politicians accept the new heath care????, Like us the people who pay taxes and the people who do not have a income or a job/career....If the president will not take part, why should the people of the U.S be bullied....I voted for Mr. Obama but now that I think about it and listen to what has been going on around the country, he is just a liar like every politician that works for this country. Money is the root of all evil and that is why the world is spinning out of control....

 

Don't you love how the $RICH$ People in this country love making Choices/decision for the poor people, Just think about it and ask yourself what would you do if you were $RICH$, would you make a poor person do what you want, o wait did we not have slavery in this country at one point.....

 

Food for thought, or how about let the government be fair with the people of the U.S, Let the people of this Country Vote, Yes or No on this health plan.

 

How come no one is asking the president if he will take part in this health care plan, only one reporter asked and the president avoided the question and that was a month ago!!!!

 

If the president will not take part in this so called health care plan, why should the people of "USA" be bullied taking this health care plan...

 

If this health care plan is not good enough for the president/politician's, why is the government pushing this on the American People!!!!!! PEOPLE THINK PLEASE, WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO US!!!

 

So how about this, Why not let the american people of this country pick what type of Health care plan we would like...O wait we do have that option but not for long after this health care plan will pass..so why does the goverement want to step in..

 

Well when this health care plan takes affect, this means MORE $$MONEY$$ for the GOVERNMENT(as in money coming in for the ex president's and all the other ex politicians that still receives a paycheck/ and even more taxes taking out of our PAYCHECK/'s....

 

look at our state taxes I.E.-California,look how much we pay for some one Else's medical...lets see 32% is taking out for medical and that is in California(WHAT THE).....

 

and just wait tell the Health care plan hits the Nurse's/Hospital's/Doctor's, When the health care professions pay drops...no more nurses/doctors/hospitals, you think that a nurse that has been in school for over 5 or 6 years and receives an hourly wage of $75.00 or more an hour for working 3 days at 12 hours a day would want the pay to drop down to $12.00 an hour, just because of this health care plan that the government will passed...

 

Come on people wake up and smell the STANK that the government is wiping from there a**.....
