I know it's not a competition.  But gosh, we could have had this knowledge even sooner.

Congratulations to the LHC.  After two years of upgrades, the new data is starting to roll in.  And one of the recent proofs is the discovery of a pentaquark particle. Where hadron particles (like protons) have three quarks, pentaquarks are particles consisting of five quarks.  This is a breakthrough discovery for many theorists.  And it only proves that the engineers need to build machines in order to validate (or invalidate) the theorists.  After all, supersymmetry has been shelved since the Higgs boson clocked in at ~126 GEv.

So why the title listed above?  Simply put, America was on track to build the Super Superconductor (SSC).  Unfortunately, the project was killed in 1993 by a Congress and a President that didn't want to spend the money.  Instead, they funded the ISS. Of cour... more »

[Note: Pure science has immediate returns.  But the majority of the costs result in practical impacts many years down the road.]  

Could Americans have built the SSC?  Yes.  Would it have required cooperation with other countries.  Yes.  So bravo to the scientists and governments (including US scientists and the US federal government) that have spent billions on a basic science initiative.  

Someday soon, maybe the US will show some willpower and build the next machine that will unlock more secrets to the cosmos.___

What would you sacrifice for the ones that you love?

That's the fundamental question that I keep pondering as I watch 12 Monkeys.  The TV show is roughly based upon the 1995 movie directed by Terry Gillaim.  The TV series centers around two people: one from "modern" time (Cassandra Railly) and one sent back from the future (James Cole).  The two attempt to thwart the release of a pathogen that will kill billions and forever change the course of history.

I won't reveal any spoilers.  But I will say that the series (created by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett) is one of the very best time-travel shows that I've ever scene.  In this TV series, time travel (and all of its implications) are explored through the lens of individuals who must make devastating choices - for humanity and for themselves.

The show got renewed - though it won't return until next year.  And I can't wait to see what Cassie, Cole, Dr. Jones, and Ramse will do next.___

Investors across the globe are very fearful

Based upon a 0-100 index (where 0 is insanely fearful, 50 is neutral and 100 is extremely greedy), the current fear/greed index is at 8.  

So while the markets and their investors are afraid, where is your heart?  I'm certainly concerned for our future.  But I will not be gripped by fear.  Naked came I into the world.  And I will leave it in the same way.  So rather than worry, I am placing my confidence in a much more stable market: the economy of mercy.

Why does Trump lead the GOP pack?

That's simple.  There are way too many candidates.  Once the field winnows down a bit, we may finally see conservative candidates begin to rise above the the rest.  Until then, the award for summer spectacle does not go to Trump.  It has to go to Hillary.  Hopefully, some of the lower-ceded Republicans will drop out before the Hillary imbroglio finally resolves itself.

New revisions of the RPi2 client for Plex

I decided to use my latest Pi2 with the big screen.  So I picked up the new RasPlex and built a bootable SD card.  The new home theater is in operation.  Hopefully, it will meet the team's needs.

Is this the end-game or is there more to be revealed?

Clinton chose to hide her emails from the department over which she presided, and from the public, for years after she wrote them. In the months since this fact was revealed, she and her campaign have told repeated falsehoods in an effort to defend that original bad decision. To cut through the lies is to find a systematic, flagrant violation of State Department rules and federal records laws and regulations, evincing dishonesty and a lack of transparency. But the leak of top secret information is worse than any of that.

Consider, on the one hand, the painstaking measures that Clinton took to keep her correspondence away from the prying eyes of her employers — the public. Compare that to the reckless manner in which she treated the nation's secrets, with which she was entrusted. That should make her priorities quite clear.___Is this the end-game or is there more to be revealed?

Yesterday, I was wondering how NFPS works and how it could be legal?

Now, I know that it isn't legal.    

That's a shame.  The service provides a consolidated TV stream for a nominal donation/fee (~$80/year).  I wonder why there isn't a monthly (or yearly) bundle that the ISP's could provide.  In my view, the tool is cool.  The law is understandable.  But I hope that the cable companies get the message: people want un-bundled services.

Why are you being stretched and pulled like taffy?

So that you can demonstrate God's power to redeem you from the hell in your life.  He had to go to the underworld in order to redeem us from our irredeemable sin and the death that it conveys.  It is Jesus who vanquished sin and death in the grave.  And it is Jesus who can meet us in the hell of our own trials.  

Watch this video.  It will be an investment of approximately thirty minutes.  And they'll be some of the best moments of your life.

I find myself resonating with every word that Joni speaks.  I cannot say that I understand the depths of her situation.  But I understand the depths of my own situation.  I am legally blind.  I have an errant heart.  I continue to live because I take meds that force my heart to beat in a steady rhythm.  And at this moment, I am off my bike due to theseproblems.  ... more »

God will redeem me from these things one day.  But until that day, I need him to heal my wandering soul.  The worst brokenness in my life is the brokenness of a spirit that still rebels under my Savior's gentle guidance.  

The "heart" of who I am is a variable and sporadic man.  I am on fire one minute and as cold as ice the next.  The "rhythm" of my life is so very much like the rhythm of my heart.  

And the worst blindness that I suffer is my failure to see clearly that Jesus is the only truly important thing in this universe.  And I should demonstrate my love for Him by showing His love to others.  

God, please heal me of these eternal blemishes so that when I step into heaven, I will be ready to truly thank you for all that you have done.___

I had Mr. Mozart to keep me company.

Some of the most amazing dramas are prison dramas.  Whether it is The Longest Yard or Stalag 17.  These kinds of movies elevate the human spirit in unimaginable ways.  

So tonight, I had my spirits lifted by The Shawshank Redemption.   I love movies.  And I've had plenty of opportunities to watch this movie before.  But I'd never gotten around to it.  Well, tonight I got around to it.

And I was not disappointed.

Andy was an inspiration.  Why?  Because he had the opportunity to advance his own safety as well as his personal fortunes.  But rather than seize those opportunities, he sacrificed himself to improve the lives of those around him.

"Roll forward to now and parallels could not be more striking:  Trump is the Anti-Obama who is saying all the right things but in this case the warning signs are even more clear.  Trump is even more of a narcissist, more thin skinned with even more of a inflated ego." - Doug Ralphs

The analysis is starting to roll in.  The real winner for this debate was Fox News.  There were some breakouts.  And there were a few (very few) gaffes.  But Fox News brought their "A" game - and they got some fantastic viewer counts (courtesy of the Trump Show).  

I was impressed by a few - including Carly.  But I share Mr. Ralphs' sentiments concerning Donald Trump.  If we don't want yet another narcissist, we need to pass on The Donald.

You'd better check the polling method before you trust the poll results.

The Drudge report poll has Trump winning the debate handily.  But take a closer look.  Anyone can take the poll.  And there is no validation that someone can't enter their "selection" multiple times from multiple locations.  As such, I certainly will not trust the poll as scientific (or even vaguely accurate).

So what do I think happened.  I think that the poll has been rigged by Trump supporters or Democratic operatives.  Yes, Trump made an impact.  How could he not?  The entire line of questioning existed to maximize Trump's time and highlight the "hot button" topics.  OK.  I get that.

But let's not rest under the delusion that this is anything but an un-monitored snap poll.  There is nothing authoritative that can be inferred here.

No human leader will ever meet our needs.

Are you looking forward to the debates tonight?  I am.  

While many want a Saul to be their king (e.g., The Donald), others want a David (e.g., Ben Carson / Mike Huckabee).  And while I do want someone more in the Davidic category, what I really want is for there to be no king but God.  He should be our star and guiding light.  We should never look to any man to be the guide for our lives.  That honor is only due to the King of Kings who sacrificed Himself that we might be redeemed.  

So as I watch the debates, I will look for the candidate and policies that would minimize the Presidency.  Thomas Payne was right: that government governs best which governs least.  So I want a candidate that will scale back the Imperial Presidency and the overblown unholy Roman empire.

Psalms 47

1 Clap your hands, all peoples!
    Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
2 For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared,
    a great king over all the earth.
3 He subdued peoples under us,
    and nations under our feet.
4 He chose our heritage for us,
    the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah
5 God has gone up with a shout,
    the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.
6 Sing praises to God, sing praises!
    Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
7 For God is the King of all the earth;
    sing praises with a psalm![a]
8 God reigns over the nations;
    God sits on his holy throne.
9 The princes of the peoples gather
    as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
    he is highly exalted!___

I've been thinking about the upcoming Presidential election.

And whenever I do, this song comes to mind. Citizens, let's remember the real reason that we are here: we are to be salt and light - to our friends, our families, our communities, our nation and our world. To strive for less is to diminish the sacrifice that He made for us.

Should we abandon participation in the political process? Heaven forbid it. But we are to be in the world and not of the world. Yes, be involved. But the leader that we need is not a Saul. We need a David. We need someone who puts God's glory first.

Tonight, I will be looking for a David.

I can speak for no one save myself. After three plus decades, I know that I truly appreciate God's grace when I stand naked before Him, fumbling to find a leaf to hide my shame. Hallelujah for the cross.

According to POTUS and SecState, this "deal" is verifiable.

But if we don't know the details of the side agreements, how can we know anything? The new Reagan slander coming from the lips of POTUS is "trust but don't verify".

Washington is morally bankrupt.

We elected a Republican House. Then we elected a Republican Senate. And with that power, the GOP still approved funding Planned Infanticide. I've ripped up my Republican card. They have proven that they are part of the problem.

The Lord does not look at the things that people look at.

Amen. When he sees me, He does not see a broken and unworthy man: He sees His child. May He see in me a glimpse of Himself and His inestimable grace.

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” - 1 Samuel 16:7 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1Samuel16:7&version=NIV

My ride was a reminder.

Yes, you read that right. I am riding this morning. And yes, it is against doctor's orders. But I had to either ride or not go to work. In a manner of speaking, my ride was forbidden fruit.

So I started to think about forbidden fruit.

Why did my doctor tell me not to ride? It's not because he wants to be a poor sport or a killjoy. He knows the risks. And he wants to protect me.

And isn't it that way when our heavenly Father tells us not to do something? He knows the risks. And He knows what is best for us. Can I do the activity and get away with it? Maybe I can. And maybe I can't. But if I choose to disobey 'doctor's orders', then I have made a choice of my own free will.

Fortunately, the analogy falls down here.

In today's case, riding is not tantamount to sinning. ... more »

In today's case, riding is not tantamount to sinning. And my doctor isn't God. So I did what I needed to do. And I made it with no problems, thank God.

And yes, the ride was sweet.___

Negotiation before extirpation.

I'm glad to see that the real monopoly had to step back from the brink.  In this case, the real monopoly is the union.  Unions believe that they have the sole right to negotiate for wages  

Why doesn't the DOJ go after this self-aggrandizing monopolist?

Are you a Chrome user and have you just installed Windows 10?

If so, you may be experiencing some dreadful Google Chrome performance.  If that is indeed your case, then try and uninstall Chrome, reboot and then reinstall Chrome.  That seems to be the best strategy that people are coming up with so far.
