  • There's an Eagle Scout playing in Super Bowl 50
    and healthy lives It is a shame to see men abused for public entertainment Mike February 1 2016 at 10 52 pm Reply This eagle scout is 6 2 locked n loaded ready for what comes his way Take a look at how many Navy seals are Eagle Scouts Be Prepared son Randy Deprez February 2 2016 at 6 25 am Reply Football is one of the sports authorized by BSA for completing requirement 4 of the Sports merit badge Dani Utecht February 1 2016 at 1 30 pm Reply I always love to read stories like this I have 2 sons that are Eagle Scouts and one who should be within the year This is a testament to my telling my boys that you can do many things in life and do them well Being in scouts and sports and band and choir and church and volunteering and are not mutually exclusive You can be a well rounded person no matter what your friends or teammates say It is a matter of priorities and time management Jim Schwab Eagle Scout 1990 Troop 50 Cumberland RI February 1 2016 at 2 29 pm Reply Most sports are dangerous somehow as are many scouting related activities You think it s not dangerous to canoe 50 miles down a river or hike up a mountain High Adventure camps are dangerous Camping in the cold weather in New England is dangerous However physically fit and Mentally strong demand that we rise to challenges and approach that risk smartly We make sure that we minimize risk and emphasize safety Football has come a long way to that end as has scouting We build character by teaching how to approach that risk and to overcome challenges with our mind body and spirit Thanks for your input but mocking football and insinuating that it s not aligned with scouting principals is simply wrong and foolish Darren Law February 1 2016 at 9 25 pm Reply Given the many criminal and near criminal actions we see from many pro athletes we could use a few more men of character in the mix The guy that the whole offense depends on to perform every play sounds like a job for an Eagle Anita Walth February 2 2016 at 7 53 am Reply The Panthers had another one last year Brian Folkerts Speaking from a mother of 4 Eagle Scouts we could use a few more and maybe bring back some of the morals that come w being and Eagle Scout Janet Hannon February 2 2016 at 9 29 am Reply I am a very proud grandmother of an Eagle Scout I know hard and dedicated with honor they work to achieve the rank of Egle Scout I love knowing quite a few Football players are Eagle Scoyts My Grandson is still on High school He is an amazing young man and has accomplished so much by the age of sixteen Good luck Broncos I ll be cheering you

  • Venturer learns to appreciate Scouting's global reach
    all have something in common that unites us The opening ceremony began in a pitch black room The Scouts from each of the 35 countries lit a candle one by one as their country s name was called Together we all spoke so many different languages Spanish English French Portuguese Papiamento and more The experience foreshadowed a realization I d make by the end of the week Here I was with people from all over North Central and South America and similar to my first interaction with Dami we immediately grew close sharing stories joking around and transforming into a great team I found the leadership trainings and presentations were very similar to those I d given at home experiences that have shaped me from the shy introverted child I was to the person I am today But I started seeing subtle differences in those made by people from different countries Each person brought with them their own backpack full of traditions stories and cultural experiences I was exposed to the different approaches Scouting takes in each of the various countries and what they tend to focus on adventure service mentorship bringing peace etc The simple things from the way we eat the clothes we wear and our interaction with one another differed so much I was able to be a little vulnerable and share a piece of myself with everyone else in an atmosphere where people were accepting and excited to learn about a different perspective The experience allowed me to challenge my beliefs and be willing to try something new ILT became the ultimate epitome of diversity I ve come home with a new set of perspectives and a new appreciation for the world we live in I hope that other Scouts have the opportunity to get a glimpse of the amazing and powerful worldwide movement we have Pratik Vaidya Western Region Venturing President WR Venturing scouting org Share this Click to email this to a friend Opens in new window Click to print Opens in new window Click to share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Click to share on Pinterest Opens in new window Click to share on Pocket Opens in new window More Click to share on LinkedIn Opens in new window Click to share on Reddit Opens in new window Click to share on Tumblr Opens in new window Click to Press This Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Related 4 Comments on Venturer learns to appreciate Scouting s global reach Ken February 4 2016 at 2 38 pm Reply What a great opportunity Thanks for sharing your experience Pratik Kesilyn February 4 2016 at 7 01 pm Reply Fantastic Pratik Glad to have shared ILT with you Benjamin Ward February 4 2016 at 8 33 pm Reply Thank you for sharing your experience with the group Nahila nakne February 5 2016 at 8 31 am Reply EXCELLENT

  • "God Bless America" royalties benefit the Boy Scouts
    time Intellictual property is property period Should we give your house to the park district because you lived there long enough so the public should have it now TILII February 3 2016 at 5 13 pm Reply Why Public policy All work created prior to copyright laws is already in the public domain As stated previously the original intent of copyright was to protect rights for a limited number of years only There are no inherent rights here like with physical property rather only what the law allows Big money studios continue to lobby Congress to change and extend the law in their favor A very close comparison are patents which protect someones original idea or invention for a limited number of years Just think about the financial disaster we would all be facing if drug patents never expired and what drug companies would be charging us if they had a lifelong lock on every drug and there were no generics The original intent was that it was not good public policy to give such rights forever However the length varies based upon the date of copyright Newer works are really the more troublesome matter Older works like God Bless America are only protected for 95 years from the date of publication So 1938 plus 95 years means God Bless America will finally be in the public domain in 2033 Yeahhh The good news is GNYC still has 17 more years of royalties coming that they can use to restore Berlin Lodge Kevin February 5 2016 at 10 57 am The article says 1938 but the song was written in 1918 with the lyrics amended in 1938 Anything written before 1923 is public domain Arguably the song itself is potentially out of copyright if someone wanted to litigate the issue To the larger question yes copyright is intended to be for a limited amount of time After that time the content passes into public domain and is explicitly allowed to be remixed reworked and revisited My favorite example of this is The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen It s a superhero graphic novel and not so great movie that remixes the heroes and villains from 1800 s era fiction Kevin February 5 2016 at 3 40 pm Reply Simply put the Constitution To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries ConniK February 4 2016 at 9 29 am Reply Thank you for the beautiful singing of God Bless America That sure made my morning Mr Bubbles February 4 2016 at 10 23 am Reply Intellectual property is property just the same as my horse house and patentable processes How does a song materially differ from a book or story I ve written Sure you can re tell the story for free but if you commercially perform it with a view to profit that s the same as re publishing my book or referencing my patented processes in yours without paying for them It s theft the same as if you stole my horse or rigged an election TILII February 4 2016 at 11 48 am Reply Not quite exactly the same You get to own your horse until he dies You get to own your house until you die Who owns the house after you die depends upon your will or lack thereof and or state probate laws Intellectual property has never been treated equal to personal property A commercial performance is a whole different situation and I doubt too many people care if money changes hands between two parties when both are making a profit Yet that is why BSA national was forced to purchase a license so Scouters could play movies during Wood Badge NYLT and other council sponsored activities without getting sued for copyright infringement I d love to see a logical argument that any BSA showing of movies was a commercial or for profit activity yet the BSA like many others is caught up in much of the nonsense surrounding copyrights However average citizens were intended to receive free access to copyrighted material for their own personal use after the copyright expired That is known as public domain There is a huge portfolio of movies songs books etc that should have transferred into the public domain long ago but has not because the big studio lobby continues to spend huge sums to extend the expiration date of copyright laws every time they near expiration Their economic interest is well protected The economic interest of the average citizen is not And that takes money out of everyones pockets and continues to enrich the big studios far in excess of what was originally intended No one is arguing that artists should not be compensated for their creative work The argument is how long copyright laws should exist before they expire Important to this argument is the vast sum of copyrighted material studios seek to extend protection is owned by them and not by individual artists Bart February 4 2016 at 12 01 pm Reply Because people build off other creative works Creative works don t exist in a vacuum For almost any song now we can take a measure and say See this measure is the same as this other measure in this other song Music today is only possible because Mozart Bach and every other prolific artist from ages past has had their works go into the public domain You might say That s a rubbish idea a single measure a few notes that s not copyright infringement I beg to differ Consider Vanilla Ice and Queen and the little spat they had where Vanilla Ice was found legally culpable That is perhaps the most notable of recent musical copyright infringement cases but the issue remains Music isn t like a house that one person lives in it s not your castle It informs and creates the cultural zeitgeist
