A US health care worker just contracted Ebola although he wore complete protective gear. You can read about it here. There have been over 80 doctors and nurses who recently died treating Ebola victims. They too wore protective clothing. We are being told the disease can only be spread through direct contact with bodily fluids. We are told it cannot be spread through the air like colds and flu. This is a lie.
Read this abstract from a research paper written in 1995. It documents the transmission of Ebola through the air between isolated monkey test subjects who only shared a common air duct. The uninfected monkeys caught Ebola simply by breathing air from contaminated victims. The distance was many feet. This means you could easily get Ebola by simply standing next to someone infected at Walmart. Your children can get Ebola playing with another infected child at school.
Read the research paper here. It is something everyone should read.
Our government is trying to minimize the panic around Ebola but the lies only make things worse. Ebola has the potential to become a very bad pandemic.
"Convenience" has long been the defense of people who illegally download movies and television shows for free on the internet. If you live in the US, it’s time to admit you’re probably doing it for other reasons. Literally all of the top 100 box office hits—and 96% of the top 100 TV series—are legally available online…
Did you know nearly 100% of the top TV shows and movies are legally available online? Me ether, mostly because it isn’t true.
Per this idiot’s own chart, it is only true for shows 2 or 3 years old.I probably wouldn’t bother watching it at all if I cared that little.
The internet is the graveyard for entertainment. Movies or TV only show up after they’ve milked every dime from theater runs, TV broadcasts, DVD sales, rentals, Pay-Per-View, and syndication sales. For some, it’s a short wait because no one cares about that stuff. Who buys box sets of John Stewart’s Daily Show? His topical humor has almost no shelf life so it shows up the next day. For others, especially movies, there is a long road before you can stream it online.
Do people pirate entertainment to avoid paying? Yes, indeed. Most shows aren’t worth the $15 ticket prices. When taking someone to the movies can run upwards of $50 or more, something is bad wrong.
Would people pay a reasonable price to watch it online while still a new release? Absolutely and without question. Very few people would pirate a crummy quality screener that’s barely watchable if they could see the real version for a few bucks.
Media companies have a problem in they refuse to follow market pricing. Redbox offers movies for 99 cents. Netflix DVD rentals are about the same. Cable TV have thousands for free. The price of movies is established and it isn’t $15. It is closer to $1 for recent movies and free for everything else. Ticket prices along with online sales from Itunes are rip offs and people are getting tired of it.
The entertainment industry created piracy by price gouging the customer while refusing to let them watch where and when they please. Only they can fix the problem and I’m getting pretty sick of them blaming the customer for things they did.
“Users who try to use anonymity, or cover themselves up on the Internet, are usually doing things that aren’t so-to-speak legal. We have the right to terminate, fine, or suspend your account at anytime due to you violating the rules.” -Comcast Customer Representative
You knew this was coming, right? Once you accept spying any attempt to avoid it will be called “hiding illegal activity”. They have redefined privacy as a criminal act. Comcast also stated they need your activity in case the government presents them with a warrant. TOR is the low hanging fruit. Next up will be Virtual Private Networks and IP address spoofing. If you can’t use TOR you can’t use those either because they all hide your activity.
Are you comfortable with corporations and the government treating you like a criminal simply because you want the privacy guaranteed by the Constitution?
Sunil Dutta, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department and professor of homeland security at Colorado Tech University, has a suggestion for victims of police violence….
"if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you," he writes. Dutta responds to mounting criticism of the policing tactics on display in Ferguson, Missouri, amid the hyper-militarization of law enforcement and accusations that officers have violated the First Amendment rights of both demonstrators and journalists covering the events. In a particularly telling passage, Dutta argues that citizens could deter police brutality if they were simply more cooperative, even when they’re unjustly targeted.
The move is aimed at strengthening Japan-US cooperation in space, and comes after a pledge to boost joint work on monitoring space debris.
Space debris have been monitored and tracked for years. Each significant piece is cataloged. No one needs a “Military Space Force” to observe trash. What could they do about it anyway? Call the city trash collectors? The Space Marines can’t be garbage men.
Militarizing space is a serious matter. The fact our government would concoct such ridiculous lies is disturbing. Why can’t we be told the truth?
I’m sure Russia, China, and everyone else, know what we’re doing. Our state department computers are hacked dozens of times a day according to our own admission. Information is available to anyone who can exploit the internet or infiltrate us with informants.
Why can’t the public be told what is surely common knowledge everywhere else?
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The fight over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s signature policy achievement, a law effectively ending collective bargaining for most public employees, ended Thursday with the state Supreme Court declaring it to be constitutional.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court just said citizens do not have a right to represent themselves in matters of wages or benefits. Here is a quote:
"collective bargaining remains a creation of legislative grace and not constitutional obligation," Justice Michael Gableman wrote for the court’s conservative majority".
So whatever you get is a matter of “grace”. You have no input or control. It comes from the heart of those better than you. Sort of like how God grants life our superiors grant money to the inferior.The courts have spoken. We exist by the good graces of our superiors.
If you don’t like it you can quit. Of course, since the courts just made exploitation legal there is nowhere to turn. It’s like making bank robbery legal and then telling you to change banks if you don’t want your money stolen. I doubt it would help much and changing jobs won’t help much either.
