Very early Sunday morning reading and the search for meaning in life on Twitter by Kevin E. I stayed-up late last night and yet did not finish my writing assignment. This morning I quickly fell into a rabbit-hole on Facebook. Although I do not follow sports per se, I like to read sports articles. I mean, I like to read all good writing, whether I know anything about the subject or not – – or agree with the writer or disagree. What is the story behind the story as to what motivated people to complicated arena of accomplishment. However writing about sports — and its twin separated at birth, local government, is catnip for a frustrated short story writer that toils away with a lust for deeper meaning while shackled with the news medium shallow hook-up version of a battery-powered typewriter. A job that I love by the way. But nevertheless I live with the tension I feel when life — and my job get in the way of art and writing short stories — and running. Although, writing about local small government can have some intrigue and drama to it that you simply cannot make up.
The Violence Trap Part 7: Later, that same day, after every news network had covered the story of the mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, there was another event with guns occurring on the other side of the nation. I understand that the gun show was scheduled long before the gunman entered the elementary school with evil intent.
Going fast, getting nowhere Motorcycles, politics, literature, music, philosophy, humour, miscellany, custard If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. Here’s a little something about the trip. I will be posting something separately about the kit I was using, as I put a number of things to quite a severe test. Quite a long post, so if you’re not interested, bugger off. This was the longest trip I have done on the Bonnie, and indeed the furthest I have been on a bike in the UK for a long time: The weather forecast was fairly mixed, so I kitted up for a wet ride.
It was raining steadily on Thursday morning as I set off, and it rained for the first hour as I rode up through Wales. The rain stopped for a while and the ride from Bala to Chester was in beautiful sunshine – a glorious late October day.

Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!!! I love Mardi Gras! I may have mentioned it before, but I do. But in the end, it just wasn’t financially doable. With the bathroom remodel, a potential new roof this summer, not to mention that I spent more money than I planned on just a few months ago on my Caribbean vacation Toast and I were lamenting not being able to go this year as she was also planning on joining us , and she was just going to “stay at home, make gumbo, and pout” for the weekend. I don’t know how we got on the subject of St.
Well Hell Michelle also joined us for a short-notice weekend jaunt to the Gateway to the West. In a rental, we hauled ass to St. Louis on Friday, averaging 82mph, because there is only one good way to get to St. We made a brief pitstop at Ozarkland, which is not so much a cheesey redneck souvenir shop, but an experience.

When I get up, I sit for a moment on the side of the bed, I stare at the floor, and I say, “Fuck.” Every morning. Every single morning. Doesn’t matter how great a day might theoretically lay ahead.

History[ edit ] Jonathan Standefer and Matthew Genitempo, graphic designers from Austin, Texas , launched the web site in April as a Facebook parody site. The editors of Webster’s New World explain that this is a new word for an old phenomenon that has been made much easier by the emergence of modern technology. My favorite ones used to be the mushy ones, but the fights are the funniest. It’s like fighting drunk with one of your friends, but everyone else is in the room.
This leads to the kinds of content people submit to Lamebook: Facebook legal action[ edit ] In March , Facebook contacted Lamebook alleging that the website infringed and diluted the Facebook trademark , and requested that Lamebook cease and desist using the lamebook mark and change the name and look of its website. On November 4, Lamebook filed legal action against Facebook, seeking a declaration that the website does not infringe the rights of Facebook, and protection as a parody under the First Amendment.

Apr 09, · Looks like this is a popular issue lately. Clicking on links from a google search open up other window. I found a strange looking scheduled task set up so I have deleted it. Ran various scans using AVG that cleaned up various things but the problem remains.
Judging from the narrow dark aisle in the accompanying photograph, he set up his shot in an academic or special library. Look at those narrow stacks and the books are clearly not a range of fiction or Dorling-Kindersley-esque brightly colored non-fiction either. Books are being pushed aside for digital learning centers and gaming areas. Teens and adults do gain the wrath of others waiting to use our public computers by playing games such as Runescape or various card games in the case of the adults.
Is he talking about our meeting rooms? These are not new 2. Libraries have had meeting rooms where people talk and discuss and meet at their own sustainable volume just plain forever. Hipster staffers who blog, chat on Twitter and care little about the Dewey Decimal System are edging out old-school librarians. Good grief, Charlie Brown. I have three blogs and I’m no “hipster”.

The twist was that the band would allow anyone to come up and sing any song in the set list. It was basically karaoke with a live band. Imagine Donna’s surprise when this happened.
Music, Musings, Memoir, and Madness Day: I came home, learned to play, and joined a pipe band, the Invermich Gaelic Society Pipe Band, which had eight to ten pipers and about half a dozen drummers. Bands are sorted into grades, with Grade Four the lowest and Grade One the highest, and your band competes against other bands in your grade. There were a few competitions that stretched over two days, like the one held at Alma College in Alma, Michigan. Most competitions are one-day affairs held on a Saturday; theirs took up the entire weekend.
Saturday was the graded competition, Sunday was an open competition where all the bands, regardless of grade, competed against each other. Until about three Sunday morning, they ceilidhed their rear ends off, including their drummers, who, given two sticks, will bang on just about anything. At one point, one of our older members went down and yelled at the band, ordering them to stop.
Which they did, until the guy got back to his room, after which they started pounding and being noisy again. The next day, we were all exhausted, and more than a little p.

This is one of the new television series that I thought looked promising. As it turned out, it was a good mystery show. The volunteers of the “Forgotten Network” pick up where the Chicago police are forced to leave off on unidentified murder case victims.
While the everyday business professional or college student may not constantly be in the spotlight as big names such as Weiner are, it is still vital for everyone to take social media very seriously. With more than 1. Whether you are trying to work your way into your first internship or are already sitting behind the desk in a steady job, acting professional on social media is a must. In order to uphold your professional persona online and not end up in the digital doghouse, here are a few of the biggest things you do not want to be posting on social media.
Personal Information This one seems like a no-brainer, but you may be falling victim to this without even realizing it. When creating profiles for Facebook or other social media platforms, it can be easy to haplessly plug in such details as your address, phone number and other important information that can open yourself up to security risks.
A simple status about going on vacation now lets everyone know your house is empty. Identity thieves could pay a visit to your mailbox and open up a new credit card in your name and have a field day. Leave these details off the Internet, as they serve little purpose and are likely to be seen by the wrong eyes.

A security researcher created a cell phone base station that tricks cell phones into routing their outbound calls through his device, allowing someone to intercept even encrypted calls in the clear. Most of the price is for the laptop he used to operate the system. GSM is a second-generation technology that is not as secure as 3G technology.
Encrypted calls are not protected from interception because the rogue tower can simply turn it off.
