Pawel Pawlikowski’s ‘Cold War’ Makes History for Poland

Burning With Love: St. Joseph Sebastian Pelczar

A snapshot in time.  That’s what this moment was; but not some faded black and white photograph or oil on canvas.  No, this was real, live and in color — Rome, 1866. An assembly of cassock-clad clerics at the Polish College was listening intently to an address by Blessed Pius IX, the Pope who only a dozen years before had declared the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception.  He was greatly esteemed by the students for this and for what one of them would describe as his “angelic bearing, his unyieldi...

EU Cancels 'Final' Negotiations On EU Copyright Directive As It Becomes Clear There Isn't Enough Support (techdirt)

So, this is certainly unexpected. Just hours after we pointed out that even all of the lobbyists who had written/pushed for Article 13 in the EU Copyright Directive were now abandoning their support for it (basically because the EU was considering making it just slightly less awful), it appears that Monday's negotiations have been called off entirely: BREAKING: Council has failed to find an agreement on its #copyright position today.

Hot chocolate or cocoa in Poland?

We hear some people talking about hot cocoa (gorąc...
