The Future of Google Glass?

Preface. I remember when cell phones first started becoming a bit more common. Most people would use them to make a quick phone call, or of course keep them on road trips in case of emergencies. That was when I was much younger. When I started college still not everyone had them, but their use was becoming much more common and diversified as far as what people would use them for. Fast forward a few yrs from that; everyone my age has a cell phone, (except for me, I didn't get one until 2008 ish, maybe around there) and texting was becoming popular as well as phones having games or fun ringtones and even early versions of camera phones. Go forward a few more years, people are hooked on their phones, phones can do everything you could possibly want, people become mad/frustrated/helpless/anxious when their phones are lost or are not working right. People are addicted to their phones. My current phone is from maybe 2010 ish, I don't remember exactly, but it is not internet friendly, can't receive picture texts, does not have a keyboard and sometimes I turn it off for days at a time. However, I am in the minority of people my age who operate like that with phones.

I could lose my phone tomorrow and my life would go on just fine. But not the growing majority of people. People won't leave their homes without their phones, or they will go back to their homes to get their phones if they realize the phones have been left behind. There are charging stations in airports, bus stops, I've even seen them in malls. People can't fathom the idea of living or a few hours a day without their phones on and charged. And not so long ago cell phones were mostly just kept in car glove compartments for emergencies.

This story about the guy with google glass problem is interesting to me because while it seems far fetched, I could see this going down the similar path that cell phones took eventually, where most people where google glass the majority of the day and become anxious when they are cut off from it. All new technology is expensive and foreign at first, but eventually google glass will become the norm, maybe in a casual way like cell phones at first, but I do see a further off future where more problems like this arise.

As for me...I can't even go get a new phone because the kind I want/like is so old they don't make them any more and even some of the less fancy models are way too full of bells and whistles for me.

Libertarians Are Bored With Politics

By Cecilia D'Anastasio | Oct 15 2014
Vice.com

This Saturday, Derrick Broze, a dreadlocked anarchist from Texas, was sitting alone reading in the VIP room of New York City’s LibertyFest while preparing to give a speech on how to dismantle the government. As the room filled with what Broze referred to as “celebretarians,” he sat absorbed in his book, The Art of Not Being Governed: An Anarchist History of Upland Southeast Asia.

Among the anarcho-libertarians who turn out for this annual convention for the various sects of the freedom-loving fringe, Broze’s résumé is impressive and includes such items as selling non-GMO seeds and hosting an anarchist talk show. Earlier this month, he was arrested outside Houston City Council for “disorderly conduct” and “abusive language” during a demonstration against water fluoridation. He’s what he calls an “agorist,” or an anarchist-leaning libertarian, which, according to the New Libertarian Manifesto, means he's more focused on direct action than politics.

Since Ron Paul's 2012 presidential campaign fizzled out—and arguably before then—libertarians like Broze have grown increasingly skeptical of the political process. Already weary of government involvement in economic and social matters, libertarians have lately been asking themselves whether “libertarian politician” is a contradiction in terms.

Please learn how to make a proper video from your phone!

There are so many "skinny" video's on youtube and elsewhere because people don't realize they need to turn their phone sideways to make a video. If you don't turn your phone sideways you get a video that is 9:16 aspect ration instead of 16:9. What this means is your resolution is cut WAY back because your long dimension has to be shrunk to fit a normal 16:9 screen. In this way you waste a great deal of "information" in the form of resolution and detail of your video (at least after it's been processed for consumption).

Every phone I've had this means turning your phone counter clockwise 90 degrees. With my phone if you turn it 90 degrees clockwise your video is upside-down when played on a computer.

Ok everyone, do a practice video right now and get used to the correct position for video. After you try it a few times it will become second nature.

Thanks everyone!!

How Do Nurses Get It?

How did nurses get Ebola. Though not family members and friends who slept with and cared for Patient Zero while sick in a small Apartment without any protection. But the nurses wore level Four protection. What says CDC about that? Something doesn't smell right.

“Pardon Us For Our Country’s Existence in the Middle of Your Military Bases”


WASHINGTON, Oct. 15, 2014 http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=123425

“The demands on the Army will only grow more diverse and complicated going forward. Threats from terrorists and insurgents will remain with us for a long time, but we also must deal with a revisionist Russia -- with its modern and capable Army -- on NATO's doorstep.” ~ Sec. Def. Chuck Hagel

What he is really saying:
"Russians placed their country too close to our military bases"

Open Carry Preacher Terry Holcomb arrested at San Jacinto County Texas Commisioners Meeting

Update, Terry was interviewed on Raging Elephants Radio, waiting for archive to be posted.
http://www.ragingelephantsradio.com/

Terry was one of our Liberty Candidates for State House in Texas this year. He was released from jail yesterday.


http://youtu.be/G12BYRRGg00

http://www.ragingelephantsradio.com/arrested-terry-holcomb-s...
Terry Holcomb is accused of disrupting the meeting because he was not allowed to make public comments as the regular portion of the meeting was adjourned for an executive session.
“We’re not gonna allow public comments today?” Holcomb said to the four county commissioners and County Judge Fritz Faulkner.
“It’s not on the agenda,” Faulkner replied.
“That’s unacceptable,” Holcomb said.
Faulkner then told Holcomb he could “go outside and discuss it,” but the meeting was moving forward with an executive session.
Saying again that the situation was “unacceptable,” Holcomb accused the court of taking the rights of the people.
When Holcomb made no effort to leave the courtroom, Faulkner said to him, “You’re dangerously close to disrupting a public meeting.”
Holcomb told the judge that he was denying the people their right to have their voice heard.
Faulkner responded by saying, “You can go out there and talk to the people. We’re fixing to have executive session.”
Still seated in his chair, Holcomb said, “You didn’t want to hear from the citizens and you’re gonna hear from them. You are gonna hear from me. You are not going to silence us by your abuse.”
At that point, Faulkner called for Pct. 2 Constable Roy Pippin Jr. to remove Holcomb from the meeting chamber.
“You have been requested to remove from the court,” Pippin told Holcomb.
“I am not leaving. I am not leaving,” he replied.
Directing his comments to commissioners, Holcomb then said, “And y’all commissioners that are allowing this, you are all cowards. All of you.”
Pippin implored Holcomb to leave the room but Holcomb remained in his chair and demanded to know what law he had broken.
“No law is broken. You were given an order to remove from court,” said Pippin, adding moments later, “By not following my order, you are resisting arrest. Do you want to go to jail for resisting arrest?”
Faulkner told Holcomb that commissioners court meetings are not a political stomping ground.
“That’s all you want to do,” he said.
Outside of the courtroom, Holcomb was confronted by Sheriff’s Deputy Paul Sowell who asked to have a “private word” with him.
Holcomb asked if he was being detained and Sowell replied, “You’re about to be,” prompting Holcomb to ask if he had committed a crime.
“I didn’t say you committed a crime,” said Sowell.
Sowell placed Holcomb in handcuffs and escorted him away from the premises.
-Jacob McAdams

Matthew Short:

“I just talked to Corpl Morgan at the jail where Terry Holcomb Sr. is being held. Morgan has been instructed by his superiors not to tell callers, or the press why Terry is being held. I was told that He would be arraigned “some time tomorrow”. i was told ” direct phone calls, and questions to the district attorney”. I have a very large problem with some one being held, and a member of the press not being allowed to know why they are there. i very plainly asked the deputy if he was instructed to answer the way he did or if he di not understand the question. he stated” I was instructed not to say why he is here sir.” When asked if he would be arraigned tomorrow Mr Morgan informed me he would be in the presence of one of 4 JP some time tomorrow…. Mr Morgan also informed me that the office would be open around 8 am for further information. I believe that we should continue to call until we get some real answers where my buddy Terry is….”

James Franklin:
“Thank God for real men like Terry Holcomb Sr.”

Jason Orsek:
“Talked to Terry ‘s wife Gina .
Terry is fine. As of now no charges filed. Arrested for disturbing a meeting.
Got to see judge in morning to see if any official charges will be filed. Was already informed he can PR bond. (For whatever charges)
Terry says be sure and hound them on the phone But be respectful and he will have a full briefing for everybody tomorrow.”

CNN reporter blames Dallas doctors and nurses for Ebola infections

Jake Tapper of CNN says that the Dallas doctors and nurses caring for Thomas Duncan did a bad job because the patient died and two people were infected with Ebola. Could it be that the CDC protocol is insufficient in preventing the spread of the virus? Could it be that airborne transmission has occurred? Of course not. Why? Because our government says that is impossible. Instead, the deathly ill nurses have only themselves to blame. Jake Tapper should be ashamed of himself.
