Kristin Drysdale7,675*Trust*: *Revaluation* As this is a Part deux to our conversation on Blab.im, I thought it apropos to bring to light what it means to have a rise of currency ('trust') to the relation with a foreign currency in a fixed exchange rate (what we perceive to be our asset income). Please join @115620878851836664537, @105225758574529720824, @104683923092143784953, and myself in what should prove to be a heartfelt, friend-to-friend, enlightening discussion on the importance of trust as currency in an ever-expanding digital market. #TrustDavid    #digitalcurrency   #friendship        Trust - Revaluation in an Ever-expanding Digital Market2016-03-03 23:00:0028  
Oleg Moskalensky10,202Have you used the 'new' Google+?  Do you dislike it or do you dislike it? No, it's not a misspelling or Freudian slip... at least you know how I feel. But, to be fair, let's walk through both, side by side and see.  Then you can determine whether you think the new Google+ is worth anything or, like me, you'll decide that Google should take this new version and rest it in peace, right next to their Wave and Reader... I think that'll be an excellent spot for it... but first - let's walk through both and see. P.S. This event was created using the #classic  version of Google+Ultimate Showdown - Google+ (old) vs Google+ (new)2015-12-02 21:30:009  
Ray Hiltz28,612Do you consider yourself an empathetic person? Would you say your company is empathetic? That will be a very strange question for many business owners. Like "social", the word "empathy" doesn't seem to fit in the context of business. Join us Tuesday at 12:15 PM ET when we live stream on: *YouTube* - https://youtu.be/KxTrLkD3Y-Q *RayHiltz.com* - http://rayhiltz.com/ray2go/ *BLAB* -  https://goo.gl/T1jyTQ (Our post-show Blab starts at 1:00 PM ET)    As marketers, we spend a lot of time researching and analyzing data so we have the latest stats and tools with which to do our job. As businesses, we worked hard to get our service or products launched to what we hope will be a public anxious to have what we consider indispensable. We checked all the boxes, completed our SWOT analysis and yet our sales are disappointing. How could people not "get it"? *Who are these people?* Unless you know who they are, what their needs are, what goes on in their daily life and what needs they have, you're rolling the dice instead of in the cash. This week the Ray2Go Show crew discuss the role of *EMPATHY* in your marketing. *Our #Ray2Go Show Expert Panel*: @109237790792840071389 - The ScottTreatment: www.theSCOTTtreatment.com Twitter:@ScottScowcroft Scott's our Rumplestiltskin who spins gold from raw video in his “SCOTT Treatment.” tower. @103099684867114686987 - Bowden2Bowden marketing & branding virtual consultancy firm: http://bowden2bowden.com - Twitter:@bowden2bowden Randy's spent many years in the mad world of marketing.

Debi Davis3,856_The purpose of a case study is to explore and experiment on a focused area of interest in order to develop theories, gain insights, and formulate conclusions that can be useful in advancing a body of knowledge._ On November 8, 2014, the #EagleCO  Team* was formed for the purpose of learning *how to introduce local businesses in a single town to Google Plus through the familiar territory of Google Maps.*  That, at least was the starting point.  This team of Google professionals – that’s what we’ve come to call ourselves as a result of this experience – has documented what we did and what we learned. The case study was published on April 15, 2015. (see link below) @101696764219780312734, known for her ability to get to the heart of the matter, will moderate a candid conversation with members of the team in a discussion about how the case study was conceived, the challenges encountered, the processes tested, the discoveries made, and plans for applying all of this going forward. None of this could have been accomplished without the support and encouragement of our various Google Plus networks and relationships.  If you’re receiving an invitation to this event, it is because you have shown interest in this project at some point: you have viewed or commented on an episode of the #PYBShow  featuring the project, you have commented on or shared a G+ post about it, or you have followed the @116892521277251383087 page that was created for the project. We invite you to be part of this event by commenting, asking questions, or just cheering us on. *This is, above all else, a celebration* of a goal that has been achieved through collaboration and dedication that was all made possible by the fabulousness of Google Plus. (Yes, “fabulousness” is a real word!)  *Team members:@102000982871890720967 @106708791607347215739 @115217137999606626868 @114099764891795191083 @111074048130521266574 @117875987563872032638 @114288177005200377179 @115238438924596047165 @115711602904460768024 @107095918319983994988 @106377741775412763530 @103252396937594847933 @113042596998797418291 @109243977328310908212 @103558652341658229842  Case study: http://bit.ly/1EpaWN4Local Businesses on Google Maps - A Case Study2015-04-21 23:00:00142

Yifat Cohen87,590*What if....* Google+ is not a social network at all - never intended to be a Facebook killer, nor a Twitter wanna-be and definitely not in a rush to keep up with everything else out there...? *What if....* Google+ is Google's way of analyzing our personal relationships across all their products (because relationships can't be faked) and use that knowledge to fuel services like Google Now, Nest, Home automation and Driveless cars...? *"So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?"* @102034052532213921839 is an ex-Google employee who helped design the UX of Google+ before he left Google a year ago, and whose name came up again on the Plus stream when he shared his *Thoughts on Google+* asking [quote] "So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?" and got the community talking. *SO LET'S -TALK- HANGOUT ABOUT IT.* Chris is very disappointed with Google+ because he expects better from Google. But maybe he's expecting the wrong things? @113117251731252114390 rebutted Chris' post and defended Google+ in a Google+ post that was shared 524 time and sparked conversations across the Plus (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal1)  Chris responded - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/ChrisMessinaRebutal And Mike claimed that Chris lost the argument because he didn't answer the main questions: "What site has 1) a better community; 2) better troll control; 3) better photo tools; 4) better integration with a leading wearables platform; 5) better conversations; 6) better monetization; 7) better search?" (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal2) Basically, comparing Google+ to Facebook again. (_sigh_) *IS CHRIS USING GOOGLE+ WRONG?* Chris, who was an integral part in the development of Google+ for 3.5 years was told by @107742059751171695340 that he was using Google+ wrong. He should have been talking and listening to Top Contributors (which Jaana is one) who have their ears to the ground: _"Which is the direction it's taking? That depends. Also on us, the users.  Google listens."_ (You should definitely read the comments on Jaana's post, where she and Chris get into an agreement - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/JaanaNyströmGooglePlus) *IS IT ABOUT THE SHARED INTEREST GRAPH?* Perhaps the best insight is that of @105103058358743760661 who read between Chris' lines and brought up the point of Big Data and information networks: [Google+] "should have been 1000% focused on helping people build a rich information network around the things we care most about - our interest graph - and then to use that interest graph to connect us with *new* people who share those interests with us - our "shared interest graph." And if it's about the interest graph, then who's better than @115620878851836664537 to remind us that that takes time: _ It requires building a bunch of things, integrating them and then waiting to see how people will use them and what the data will show you. This means that we have to wait to see some results (many of which will impact search) andGoogle Rebuttal - Chris Messina's Perspective.2014-12-11 19:00:00171

ISOOSI Research Engine3,487This week on the #ISOOSICHAT  we are excited to have special guest @112116680648779331229 from Search Engine Roundtable (SER). Barry will be joining our regular #ISOOSIChat panelists including @113426828273677356184 @106515636986325493284 and @112430199625001815612. Barry has provided a very unique and valuable commentary on search engines and the search marketing industry for many years. Barry and the SER team report on the most interesting threads taking place at various popular Search Engine Marketing forums each day. Search Engine Roundtable not only reports on these topical issues, but also provides a synopsis that provides greater detail on these forum threads. One of SER's primary goals is provide a single source for the reader to visit to locate the most interesting threads covered at the SEM forums. Those in our audience that visit or contribute to forums know that sometimes things can get stated that are not based on facts. Sometimes these observations may lead to statements that sound like fact, but they are unfounded. We are after all talking about search engines here and considerations that are impacted by their algorithms - which unfortunately we in the SEM arena don't have access to :) Observations such as these can quickly turn from threads with some small incorrect assumptions into more widespread rumors and sometimes into larger myths that stick around for a longer period of time. Barry and his team do a great job of monitoring “hot topics” on the forums, presenting all sides of those important issues while contributing to the discussion with their own valued opinions. Bill Slawski, (Director of Search Marketing at Go Fish Digital) is well known for his vast knowledge of Google and other search engines and the patents that have been filed relating to their ranking algorithms. Although it is difficult to have certainty about the value and mix of individual search engine ranking signals, Bill has the notable ability to always bring always bring it back to facts…. referencing related patents, interviews or official statements on the subject. On this hangout we aim to separate fact from fiction. Rumors and myths versus papers and truths and all points between.Search Marketing Rumors, Myths and Truths2014-03-18 20:00:0059

Meloney Hall4,206Teacher Says, “ Okay, class --  you better take notes for this lesson.” Fifteen students take notes vigorously as they try to keep up with writing cursive on their lined notebook paper. Eight Students do not take any notes at all.  They might ask for someone’s notes later. One Student draws doodles as a form of note-taking.  She gets laughed at and told to “grow-up” and take notes the right way.  I’m kind of embarrassed I listened to those peers; I need to gain those skills again!  So much easier to retain the information when you can draw pictures with your written notes (printed, not cursive).  How about the Digital Way of taking notes today?  That’s what +113865527017476906160  will be showing us during the HOA broadcast with me.  I will be interviewing Sacha Chua on Wednesday, March 12th at 6:00pm ET / 3:00pm PT about how she uses SketchNotes for taking notes in a digital format.  Free-flow handwriting and techy all at the same time!  She’s a woman in science and technology, so she really loves gadgets!    She uses SketchNotes, and it’s really very fascinating!  Watching her do them LIVE is really the best!  I know Sacha as a fellow HelpOuts Provider, and I have seen her do this for many HOA’s.  This is why I wanted to interview her --  you’ll say WOW like I did when I first learned about her and what she does.    This is a link to give you the basic idea of what the system is and why it is so handy for students, business people, and anyone else who needs to retain information.  And if you’re into saving paper, then this is a true match for you!  I like to think of SketchNotes as a digital white board.  http://www.core77.com/blog/sketchnotes/sketchnotes_101_the_basics_of_visual_note-taking_19678.asp Select YES or MAYBE to get a reminder on your calendar.  It will also help mark the spot if you can’t watch live, but will want to watch the replay.  You’re in for a techy-treat!  Hope you’ll be watching! Visual Note-Taking with Sacha Chua2014-03-12 23:00:0033

Eli Fennell71,393*Mommy Blogging* Moms are some of the hardest working people in the world.  Working moms especially can teach you a lot about the tricky balance between home and hearth and struggling to pay for those things. Blogging is a powerful tool used by many moms to earn extra income from home, and as a means of connecting with the world beyond the home.  Mommy Bloggers can be some of the most creative bloggers and blog marketers out there. This week we're fortunate enough to have three great mom bloggers joining us on the show.  @116049412326685043114 is the Owner and Founder of @109443498013606253208, a company that broadcasts your conferences and meetings via social media.  She also runs the @104387705093966958943 blog along with @105157585341687205092.  @105461979270549477337, founder of the HinesSight Blog, Luxury Travel Editor for Skimbaco Lifestyle, and writer for Examiner.com, knows the best places to eat and stay in North Carolina.  As a mom to two young children, she knows the best in family travel, but as a parent in her mid-forties, she seeks out restaurants and hotels that adults can enjoy, too. @116648555722751383250 is Founder, Editor, & Writer of GoDanskerMom.com, and writes a guide for parents in the Triangle region (MominChapelHillNC.com).  Her work has appeared in several places including HerStories Project, ChapelBoro, Carolina Parent, Durham Macaroni Kid, Triangle Moms on Main, Vend Raleigh, and the Raleigh News & Observer‘s Triangle Mom2Mom.   I'll be interviewing them about Mommy Blogging, the skills, tools, and commitment necessary to be successful at it, and how their insights can help other Mom Bloggers and bloggers in general.  Join us this Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8 PM ET!  We hope to see you there! #dmcshow   #digitalmediaconnections   #mommyblogger  Digital Media Connections #4 - Mommy Blogging2014-02-27 02:00:0016

What's Your Story? _Before I got here to Google Plus, I used to be a corporate rat who used to be a journalist, before I jumped ship into full-time writing and blogging._  _I travel a lot. Over the last three years I've spent time in thirteen countries and three continents making airports and hotel rooms more of a constant, for me, than home. The one stability in all this is Google+ where I can be found, time allowing, on most days._  _The conversation here is very real and the issues we talk about are engaging and I have met people on G+ who are simply superb to connect with. I post frequently on what grabs my attention. I share insights from my writing and research and I take part in many conversations where I feel I can deliver value.  Social media is changing everything. How we shape that change and what we do in the aftermath is down to us. _ This week's show is sponsored by: @108712904755834193601  A full service hotel, conveniently located in downtown Washington, DC The hotel is located within walking distance of the White House, DC Convention Center, and two separate Metro/subway stops. http://www.inndc.com Each week @117778937939543425499 & @101696764219780312734  spotlight guests who share their inspiring stories of ingenuity, tenacity and courage!

Eli Fennell71,393*Building a Following* There are different ways to build a following, and different goals in terms of reach and scale.  The small business owner may dream of internet media stardom, but probably doesn't need it like the Big Brand, their goals may be more modest (reaching that small but critical fan base, for example).  Likewise, the Tech Blogger may never rival the audience of Britney Spears, but can build a respectable and valuable audience in their own ways. This Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 8 PM ET, we'll be discussing this issue with three guests who have approached it in very different ways and with different opportunities as well. @110677274294554982279 is a web guy, home brewer, and "glasshole" (Google Glass Explorer) from my home state of Florida.  His turn ons include long walks on the beach while playing Ingress, and his turn offs include poorly coded or incomplete websites and blogs. @102000982871890720967 is an Authority Marketer & Brand Strategist at @115000108263064481690, a graduate student at Kent State University, and also a Glass Explorer.  She is a bit of a health nut and the proud owner of three dogs. @114468593663912084118 is a social media "International Man of Mystery".  His Google+ profile tells you very little specific about him, yet he earned a spot on Google+'s coveted  Suggested User List and has gained hundreds of thousands of followers.  He's not afraid to call out anything that bothers him, and when he does, he usually goes viral. We'll be discussing the different ways to build a following depending on your goals and the opportunities that present themselves.  I'll be adding my own perspective as a Two Time Veteran of the Google+ Algorithmic Suggested User List. It should be a very insightful discussion with a great group of people, and there will almost certainly be random moments of humor and silliness.  We hope you'll join us! #digitalmediaconnections   #DMCshow   #throughglass  Digital Media Connections #3 - Building a Following2014-02-13 02:00:0033  
ISOOSI Research Engine3,487@107022061436866576067 joins the ISOOSI chat today at 3pm EST and we're super excited to have him on the show.  Mark has been one of the people for me personally (and I know for many others too) that has really been instrumental in highlighting the benefits of Google+. But, not only the easy pickings that are clear to see. Mark evangelizes the use of Google+ as not only a business network but a social network. A social network that is on a different level to anything else we have on the interwebs. He'll be the first to say that it has given him opportunities that would never have existed before it. And I for one share that experience and couldn't agree more. All businesses can learn from this hangout... and we'll start really with the basics too. We know we have many small businesses that use ISOOSI and list their businesses in our search directory that currently have zero presence on Google+   So, some of what we talk about may be already known to those that are immersed in it on a daily basis.... but through this hangout we hope to join Mark in expressing our belief in the platform and communicate the benefits it can bring to you - from a personal AND business perspective. @112430199625001815612  President, ISOOSIGhost Town or Land of Opportunity - Google+2014-02-11 21:00:0093  
martin shervington1,455,184I am delighted to be interviewing @104858643838035519891 @108493275257625053433 and @111798765849955344981. And here is the plan... I am going to ask every question about social that I can think of, but I need you help. What would you like to know? What are the gaps you need to be filled? How about cross platform posting? Tools they use? This is going to be a great opportunity to look at Google+, alongside Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and beyond. Can't wait. It is going to be a lot of fun too.Interview with three of the very best in Social Media!2014-02-11 20:00:00118

Yifat Cohen87,590*Simply having your site mobile compatible is not enough any more.* Think about it - Why did Facebook take a *mobile first-approach* when they launched Paper today? Why didn't they start with a web experience and think, “How can we strip this down and put it on a small screen?”  Because we engage with our phones and consume information on it differently. *How -Can- Do You Reach Your Customers On The Go?* It's not a question of IF, it's a question of when and how, and to answer your most urgent mobile questions I bring to you @110204961428230314896 who is known to be *Holding the hands of the "WHAT IF" and leading them to the "WHY NOT"* *The Power of Partnerships and Networks* Here's the beautiful part of this entire process - you really don't have to go at it alone.

Christine & Mia7,981Join +Christine & Mia and our January guest host +Craig Fifield to interview special guest +Eli Davidson this week. *Wednesday, January 15th* 11:30am PST/12:30pm MST/1:30pm CST/2:30pm EST More about our guest: +Eli Davidson is a nationally acclaimed female motivational keynote speaker, executive coach, award winning author, and corporate spokesperson. _If playing small is no longer an option this show is JUST for YOU. The worst day of my life sparked $100K DAYS and is helping kids in Africa. It’s still hard to talk about it. I fell in love- in love so bad that going to Costco was like going to Paris. You get the picture. I closed my business to move to Hawaii to get married. Baby, my abs looked really good. On a Wednesday morning my fiancé woke up and announced that he didn't know if he wanted to be in a relationship with anyone. And then asked me to get on a plane and go back to LA…..that day. So, in February 2011 I didn’t know how I would be able to pay my rent. I was a mess to put it mildly. That diamond I had given back was a symbol. A diamond is the most condensed form of wealth on the planet. I had to find the diamond inside myself. What was my value and contribution and how could I help others?_ _I am an entrepreneur so this took me on a journey of discovering the “diamond in my business “. By uncovering that value (and I will continue to be a student of this for the rest of my life) and creating those diamond systems I took my business from $4k a month to $100,000 days of sales and over $1million in sales in 2 years. Then I got to mentor other business owners to use those same systems. I guess it sounds self-serving, but that is not the intention. Women in particular have told me this story gives them the courage to stop playing small and go for it themselves. I am so excited to be on the show so I can give some tangible tools to help people now._ _I believe that small business can and must be a genuine engine of good works. What if every entrepreneur gave back to the planet? Now, helping business owners is a way to help make our world a better place. My life is pretty unrecognizable from a few years ago. I am still in awe. In my last event we just raised $25,000 to adopt a village and teach entrepreneurship in Africa. That is the point of all this. There is just so much good we can do together!_  *This week's show is sponsored by:* +CT Social  CT Social, LLC is an interactive digital agency based in Central Florida.

Yifat Cohen87,590METal is an exclusive gathering of and for dynamic entrepreneurs and change-makers in the media, entertainment and technology space. Their events range from talks with high-profile thinkers to connecting ideas and collaboration in our community. *One time sneak-view into METal's private meetings* This week, Tim Sanders, a New York Times bestselling author, public speaker, and former Yahoo! executive will be speaking about *Creating the Sale* The soul of this belief, comes from that creatives of all types have a passion for what they are doing because they are chasing the truth and doing “what’s right” with their lives. This is the fuel for their inventive thinking. They don’t deduce their way to the close, they create new worlds that bring everyone together. Much like a marketing executive or a software engineer, they bring their creativity to work everyday and find new joy in selling. *Many of us have one thing in common:* We are creative types trapped inside a body that is focused on a professional career, at this week’s COED METal, Featured speaker Tim Sanders will show us how to *become a creative sales genius.* Tim will show how the “funnel system” of sales is outdated, primal at this point in it’s assumptions. Each time we look at sales as a numbers game, we reduce people to statistics. That’s bad for our brand, future relationships and our sales-karma. This talk is perfect for any professional who faces a complicated sales process or an entrepreneur who is up against a high wall of resistance in selling his or her idea This week’s featured speaker is Best Selling Author Tim Sanders. Tim’s business expertise and deep research capabilities make him indispensable to some of the biggest brands in the world. He speaks for strong business relationships, both internal and external. *“Get them right,” he says, “and you’ll grow your business during good and bad times alike.”* Tim’s relevant point of view and reputation as a people expert makes him one of the most in demand keynote speakers on the conference and convention circuit. *ENTERTAINMENT* Enjoy the music of Freddie Ravel and Jhameel during this event. *Freddie Ravel* has two infectious passions: creating purpose-driven music and applying its proven effectiveness in helping entrepreneurs, businesses and corporations thrive. As an internationally-acclaimed Producer, Pianist, Presenter and Founder of the transformational engine BUSINESS HARMONICS® - an award-winning peak performance program and methodology to enhance leadership, collaboration and time management - Freddie brings an extensive track record of star power success in innovation, performance and product creation. Battlefy started as a league management platform that catered to micro-organizers like college eSports clubs. It quickly advanced into heavyweight territory when an independent game publisher with a zealous following approached Battlefy to run a world championship on its platform.

Jesse Wojdylo1,007,521Over the last few months I have noticed many people using Twitter to supplement Google+ or the other way around. I think there are some very effective strategies that can be used. This week we will get some of those strategies out on the table. All the information you need on Google Plus Chat is available here: http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/google-plus-chat-twitter-chat/ In December of last year I really jumped on Twitter in a big way as I love the real time updates and the sports engagement. This has yet to come to Google+ so I spend my weekends chatting it up with college football and college basketball folks. While doing that I notice plenty of other awesome social media users that know and love the Google+ platform. This led me to these discussion questions: 1. How long have you been active on Twitter? 2. Do you use Twitter for pleasure or business? Or pain? 3. Do you auto post to Twitter? Do you post Google+ Posts? 4. How do you use Twitter to supplement Google+? 5. Mention some active Twitter users that may enjoy Google+ 6. Do you want a Google Plus Chat on Christmas Eve? Please join us for #googlepluschat  on Twitter every Tuesday at 2:00 pm est. We will discuss if there will be a Christmas Eve event or not. Either way, join us this week!Google Plus Chat Twitter Chat2013-12-17 20:00:0053

UK Bar Owner Stops Smartphone Users With Faraday Cage

Steve Tyler, owner of the Gin Tub in the UK, wanted to force his customers to put down their smartphones and talk to each other. So he came up with a unique solution: he turned his bar into a Faraday Cage.

This blocks the cellular signals to and from phones, forcing users to interact with each other... though doing nothing to prevent the persistent problem of Food Porn and Restaurant Selfies.

The risk here is that customers may not appreciate this and take their business elsewhere.

What do you think of this?

Google's Linux-less Fuchsia Is A Big Deal
 
Google has created a GitHub page for a mysterious new Operating System called Fuchsia.  Unlike Android and Chrome OS, Fuchsia ditches the Linux Kernel in favor of a new, more lightweight Kernel called LittleKernel (LK).  The project describes LK as, "[D]esigned for small systems typically used in embedded applications.  It is good alternative to commercial offerings like FreeRTOS or ThreadX. Such systems often have a very limited amount of ram, a fixed set of peripherals and a bounded set of tasks."  The Linux Kernel, by comparison, is very heavy, and thus not very well designed for such embedded systems.
 
Fuchsia is highly scalable, running on everything from 32-bit and 64-bit ARM CPU's to 64-bit PC CPU's, fueling speculation that this could be the fabled 'replacement' or 'fusion' of Androidand Ch... more »

Google+ Adds Link & Image Embeds In Comments

The New Google+, which is now rolling out as the default interface for all Google+ users (with Classic remaining, for now, as an option), has added its most notable update yet:

Link & Image Embeds In Comments

This has, without a doubt, been one of the most demanded features since the early days of the network.

It is also, arguably, the most unique feature to come to the New Google+ Interface to-date, whereas previously the new interface has mostly been about redesigning, removing, and readding features from Classic G+.

For holdouts sticking with the old interface, this will therefore represent the strongest temptation yet to switch, while for people happy with the new interface, this helps show that Google remains committed to the network and isn't 'winding it down', as some people... more »

Links & Images in Comments
We're starting to roll out the ability to add images and links to comments on Google+ for Android, iOS, and the Web. When leaving a comment with a link, you'll be able to select a specific image or post without one. You can also remove both images and links before posting your comment and we'll warn you to make sure nothing gets lost.

As always, please send us your ideas/issues using our Send Feedback menu item as that's the best way to ensure we'll see them. Thanks~___Google+ Adds Link & Image Embeds In Comments

That Russian SETI 'Signal' Really Isn't A Big Deal

You may have heard that Russian SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Researchers have found a 'promising' signal, coming from a distant star, which might be an extraterrestrial radio signal.

Beware the hype. Other SETI Researchers and Radio Astronomers who have looked at the signal haven't been impressed by it. In fact, Eric Korpela of the SETI@home Project (of which I am an active user), was unequivocal in pointing out that there is nothing especially promising about the signal, as compared with thousands of others they've looked at, and at present is interesting only in the 'keep checking the location, but don't get your hopes up' sense.

Not only was this a single, as-yet-non-repeating signal, but the equipment used to detect it was incapable of distinguishing whether it was the narrow band signal type one would expect an alien signal to be, or the broader bands associated with natural radio phenomenon. It could literally be any number of things, the least likely of which is an intelligent extraterrestrial signal.

We can hope that some day, humanity will indeed find such proof that we are not alone, but as yet we have no good reason to believe that we have.

Nonetheless... I Want To Believe.

Florida Woman Beat Herself And Blamed Millionaire Ex Fiancé

Scott Mitchell, Florida businessman and millionaire from Tampa, Florida is locked in a tense legal battle with his ex fiancé Mary Hunt.

Mitchell accuses Hunt of stealing more than $2mn worth of jewelry from the safe in his mansion during their breakup. She, in return, accused him of savagely beating her.

There's just one problem with her claim: Mitchell has video showing Hunt beating herself up during a temper tantrum, inflicting the very injuries she accused him of causing.

The Jim Carrey Liar Liar approach is perhaps not the best legal strategy, especially when your actions are caught on camera.

Weiner Caught Sexting With Son

In a story that is only slightly less bad than the headline, and no less ironic than it sounds, Anthony Weiner, former New York Congressman whose Congressional career was destroyed by sexting, and former New York Mayoral frontrunner whose campaign was destroyed by sexting, has now destroyed his marriage after getting caught... wait for it... sexting.

Apparently for wife Huma Abedin, also a top Clinton aide, it appears that this was the final straw that broke the marriage's back. This perhaps isn't surprising, as the uncannily well named Weiner included his son in the latest scandal, sending a sext image of his erect manhood beneath boxer shorts to a female "friend" (his term) while their young son lay asleep next to him. To be clear, there was no act of pedophilia involved in the image, real or implied, but one feels little... more »

To be clear, there was no act of pedophilia involved in the image, real or implied, but one feels little better about a mind so warped that the presence of a sleeping child apparently doesn't even slow his cyber sexual addiction labido down a few notches into the non pervert range.

With this new low for himself and American Politics (a notable achievement in the Year of Trump), Mister Weiner went beyond the realm of God's Ironic Joke into something more than vaguely disturbing and clearly clinical. Perhaps the one high spot of this, is that it appears Mister Weiner finally took the hint the universe has been giving him for years and deleted his ill fated Twitter account. It's just as well, as it saw things no Twitter account should ever see, and would surely never have been quite right again.

Facebook Ends Human Curation Of Trends And Is Overrun With Fake News

A few days ago, Facebook put an end to their traditional habit of manually curating Trending news stories and descriptions thereof. Although it would be hard not to imagine this had something to do with accusations of political bias, it also makes it easier for them to scale the feature globally.

Unfortunately, the flaw in uncurated Trending news is already rearing its ugly head, as the network is now giving exposure to a fake news story about Fox News firing Megyn Kelly for being a 'traitor'.

To be clear: Fox News is not firing Megyn Kelly. Even if they wanted to, and that seems doubtful, the network is embroiled in an ongoing sexual harassment scandal in which Kelly's testimony plays a big part, so they would have to have an airtight, slam dunk, unquestionable reason to do so... more »

Surely, there must be some happy medium between a manual process that introduces intentional or unconscious biases, and an amoral, nihilistic free-for-all of Trending misinformation. Let's hope Facebook figures it out, if so.

Teenager On Run From Police Asks News Station FB Page To Use Better Picture Of Her

An 18-year old Australian girl, on the run from police after escaping a Corrections facility, let her vanity get the better of her when a news station ran her mug shot on TV.

The suspect, Amy Sharp, logged on to the station's Facebook Page and asked them to use a nicer picture of her, which she helpfully provided.

It appears this may have led to her recapture after police checked the location data from the Post itself, thus affirming the Biblical axiom about pride going before destruction, and a haughty spirit before the downfall.

Florida's 'Prison Houdini' Nearing Release

Florida man Mark DeFriest earned the nickname of 'Prison Houdini' for his repeated escapes from Florida prisons. He escaped, in fact, a total of 7 times... though, this was out of 13 attempts, so the comparison to Houdini is somewhat generous. Nonetheless, some of his escapes were like the stuff of movies, such as duplicating guard keys solely from memory.

Ironically, it all began with an arrest as a young man for stealing his father's tools after he died, earning him a mere 4-year sentence. An autistic savant, he found prison life intolerable, and through a series of escapes, escape attempts, and disciplinary issues, this short stay ultimately became a virtual life sentence.

A misclassification ultimately landed him at a maximum security prison in Oregon, where he was still considered a prisoner of Florida, and landed him in solitary confinement. There he suffered severe and untreated health issues, so that now he has no teeth left, among other health issues.

Recently, Florida's parole board voted to grant him parole some 70-years early, after he finishes a period of as little as a couple years in California for a drug related offense. He will, by then, be nearly 60-years old, having spent most of his adult life behind bars despite being non-violent.

His greatest trick, therefore, will be remaining free.

Science Rant Alert

Occam's Razor was nothing more than a way of explaining the scientific concept of parsimony, which in science means 'economy of explanation'.

Science Rant Alert

Occam's Razor was nothing more than a way of explaining the scientific concept of parsimony, which in science means 'economy of explanation'. In plain language, if two different 'scientific' explanations for a thing both predict the same outcomes, but one does so with fewer steps/invokes fewer assumptions and/or entities, the 'simpler explanation is usually the correct one...

...BUT, the usual phrase ascribed to Occam never even appears in his writings! Occam never said, "The simplest explanation is usually the correct one." What he actually said was, "Numquam ponenda est pluralitas sine necessitate,", meaning, "Plurality must never be posited without necessity." By plurality, he meant multiple explanations/formulations/entities, etc... where one, or at least fewer than supposed, can provide an equal explanation.

The classic example of this in-action is Heliocentrism v. Geocentrism, i.e. whether the Sun is the center of our Solar System or whether the Earth is the center. In practice, and viewed from ground level (leaving aside more modern data from Satellites, Space Ships/Space Stations, etc..), both theories predict the exact same outcomes, i.e. both Heliocentrism and Geocentrism correctly describe the movement of Celestial Bodies such as Planets and Stars in the sky. Heliocentrism, however, does so with fewer parameters. Geocentrism has to invoke additional concepts such as epicycles, imaginary circles around which Planets orbit in addition to their imagined orbit around Earth, in order to explain motions (e.g. retrograde motion) that aren't explained by simple orbits around Earth. Heliocentrism doesn't need these; epicycles don't exist when one assumes the objects are orbiting the Sun, not the Earth.

Consequently, even without being able to literally see from Satellites and Spacecraft that the Earth goes around the Sun, a Scientist would tend to favor Heliocentrism over Geocentrism, because the former requires fewer steps, fewer assumptions, and fewer entities to arrive at its predictions.

This is why anyone well versed in the scientific method is likely to blow a gasket when the popular phrase, "The simplest explanation is usually the correct one" is invoked: not only did Occam never use the phrase, but whereas Occam's version was very specifically saying one should never invoke multiple steps/assumptions/entities where one would equally suffice, the common non-Occam version introduces the subjective notion of 'simplicity'. The problem with the latter, is that some would argue that Geocentrism is 'simpler': you can look up and 'see' that Celestial Bodies go around Earth. It's 'simpler', subjectively, to believe that than to believe your eyes are lying to you and, in fact, the Earth's rotation on its axis makes it look that way. Likewise, some would say it's 'simpler' to say God created the Earth in 6-days than that the universe and life evolved over billions of years to its current form.

In fact, as it is usually (mis)understood, Occam's Razor violates the logical fallacy of 'the argument from incredulity', i.e. 'I can't imagine this explanation is correct, therefore it must be wrong.' Just because your imagination and/or understanding is deficient doesn't make an idea wrong.

This is probably why another, more accurate but still problematic variant is, "All else being equal, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one." Outside of competing Scientific theories, 'all else' is rarely 'equal', and frankly it's pretty rare that all else is equal even with regard to Scientific theories, if one evaluates all the evidence.

Luxury Panic Rooms Are The New 'Super Rich' Amenity

Panic Rooms are rooms designed as a safe space for homeowners to retreat to for protection during break-ins, disasters, terror attacks, and in some cases even biological and nuclear warfare. But that's no reason they can't be swank, right?

At least, that is what many super wealthy households have decided. Sure, these are meant to be very temporary shelters in a crisis, but that isn't stopping the 0.001% from outfitting them like stylish luxury hotels.

“Odd Mom Out” creator and star Jill Kargman says, “It becomes a competition at dinner parties … who has what state-of-the-art hazmat suits, and kits where you can drink your own pee, etcetera."

WhatsApp Reverses Privacy Stance To Share Data with Facebook

WhatsApp, the behemoth of Instant Messaging, is pulling a 180 on its privacy stance to profit its parent company Facebook.

When the Social Network acquired their sort-of competitor, the company promised, “Respect for your privacy is coded into our DNA, and we built WhatsApp around the goal of knowing as little about you as possible," and that the acquisition wouldn't change this.

Now, however, they are updating their Privacy Policy to share your phone number with the parent company, allowing them to more effectively track users across services. While the company would like you to primarily focus on how this will help them improve your service, block spammers, etc..., even they aren't denying that part of the point of this is to improve their ad targeting.

This is well timed, since WhatsApp has plans soon to open their service to businesses, and this could make those efforts much more valuable.

The only way, going forward, to protect your privacy would be to use a different phone number with each service, which is obviously not convenient or practical for many users, some of whom will see this as nothing less than a betrayal.

Do you use WhatsApp? How do you feel about this decision?

File and Folder Homescreen Shortcuts Added To Google Drive for Android

The latest update to Google Drive for Android gives it the ability to let users add file and folder shortcuts to their Android Homescreen.

For Android users who frequently access the same files or file folders in Google Drive, this will help them find and open those files just that little bit faster, improving their productivity, or at least saving them a few taps here and there.

Google To Penalize Obtrusive Mobile Ads & Remove 'Mobile Friendly' Label

In addition, Google will no longer display the Mobile Friendly tag on appropriate web links in Mobile Search results, as nearly all results in Mobile Search now meet this criteria. The algorithmic penalty for non Mobile Friendly web pages will, nonetheless, remain in effect.

U.S. Prisoners Will Literally Kill For Ramen Noodles

The quality and nutritional value of U.S. prison food has gone down so much in recent years, as prison budgets have flattened while prison populations explode and private prisons become increasingly common, that Ramen Noodle packs have overtaken cigarettes as a prison currency.

In effect, rather than provide sufficient nutritional value, prisons have de facto shifted an increasing amount of the financial burden for food costs onto the prisoners themselves and their support networks.

Allo Linked To Google Account As Well As Phone Number

Google's soon-to-be-publicly-released AI Powered Chat App Allo is a bit different than its previous one, Hangouts, insofar as, like competitor WhatsApp, it is tied to the phone number of the device it's installed on. This seemingly means it isn't capable of syncing between different devices, or of being installed on devices other than phones.

However, there is a caveat: in order to power its AI, Allo does in fact link to the primary Google account on your phone. This can be changed in the Settings, or even disabled though doing so would make it a lot less intelligent to say the least. This isn't actually surprising, if you think about it: for Allo to learn, and serve up better AI Chat functionality, it would need to be tied to a Google account.

It does mean, however, that it would be easy enough in the future for Google to enable such syncing and functionality, and if nothing else means it can learn from your behaviors across devices, as long as linked to the same underlying Google account, in order to improve its AI.

Florida's 'Cannibal Killer' Wanted To 'Make America Great Again'

19-year old Florida man Austin Kelly Harrouff, who has quickly become known as the 'Cannibal Killer', stabbed an apparently random couple to death, then attacked a neighbor who tried to intervene, and proceeded to bite the dead man's face off.

Sadly, he isn't the first Sunshine Stater to develop an appetite for faces, as you probably know, but he does have the dubious distinction of being the first to do so while wearing a Donald Trump cap.

Google Discontinuing Chrome Browser Apps (Except On Chrome OS)

Man Who Says God Punishes Gays With Disasters Has House Destroyed By Disaster

Tony Perkins, President of the anti-gay religious lobbying group the Family Research Council, who often claims that natural disasters are God's way of punishing LGBTQ people, had his home destroyed this week by flooding in Louisiana.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Mister Perkins has a different theory for this particular disaster, calling it an “incredible, encouraging spiritual exercise to take you to the next level in your walk with an almighty and gracious God who does all things well.” Apparently 'all things' includes massive flooding, and from that perspective, it would be hard to argue God didn't do that 'well'.

While no one wants to take any joy in a man losing his home to floods, even one with an offensive, hateful worldview, it would be hard not to see acert... more »

Perhaps not surprisingly, Mister Perkins has a different theory for this particular disaster, calling it an “incredible, encouraging spiritual exercise to take you to the next level in your walk with an almighty and gracious God who does all things well.” Apparently 'all things' includes massive flooding, and from that perspective, it would be hard to argue God didn't do that 'well'.

While no one wants to take any joy in a man losing his home to floods, even one with an offensive, hateful worldview, it would be hard not to see a certain irony here. It also begs the obvious question of why God is always said to be 'punishing' people whom guys like Mister Perkins don't like, but just 'exercising' or 'testing' them when the same things happen?

Google's Linux-less Fuchsia Is A Big Deal
 
Google has created a GitHub page for a mysterious new Operating System called Fuchsia.  Unlike Android and Chrome OS, Fuchsia ditches the Linux Kernel in favor of a new, more lightweight Kernel called LittleKernel (LK).  The project describes LK as, "[D]esigned for small systems typically used in embedded applications.  It is good alternative to commercial offerings like FreeRTOS or ThreadX. Such systems often have a very limited amount of ram, a fixed set of peripherals and a bounded set of tasks."  The Linux Kernel, by comparison, is very heavy, and thus not very well designed for such embedded systems.

Facebook Can't Beat Ad Blockers (and Even Trying Is Hurting Them)

Facebook is trying to 'fight back' against Ad Blockers, but as The Untouchables should have taught them, you never bring a knife to a gunfight. Facebook, for all their bravado on this issue, literally cannot win, and a team from Princeton has the evidence to prove it.

The pair, Professor Arvind Narayanan and undergraduate Grant Storey, created a Proof-of-Concept Chrome Browser Extension that marks every Facebook ad by whiting them out and writing 'THIS IS AN AD' in big letters. This is a very simple Extension compared to the usual techniques of ad blocking, and works by looking for the text that says 'Sponsored' on every Sponsored Facebook Post. Such clear marking of advertisements is required by law, and thus there is no way unless the laws change that Facebook can possibly hide... more »

Such clear marking of advertisements is required by law, and thus there is no way unless the laws change that Facebook can possibly hide this.

Ironically, despite the demonstrable futility of even trying to block the ad blockers, Facebook stock is sliding because Wells Fargo analysts view it as a sign that ad blockers are causing Facebook significant revenue damage to their desktop site. (Mobile is, as yet, largely untouched... for now): https://www.thestreet.com/story/13675422/1/facebook-fb-stock-slides-wells-fargo-ad-blockers-hurting-desktop-revenue.html

That makes this move by Facebook even worse than a Pyrrhic Victory; at least in those, you manage to beat the enemy, even if you have to burn your own lands and buildings down to do it. In this case, Facebook can't even win, and just trying is itself enough to harm their business.

Tsu Is Officially Dead

Tsu, the social network that paid users a share of its ad revenue for their social activity, has announced on their website that they will be shutting down, after failing to secure their latest round of funding.

They can now be added to the pile of short-lived, hype-driven social products to shut down after launching to much fanfare within the last few years, along with video chat platform Blab, which announced its own shutdown a couple days ago (https://medium.com/@shaanvp/blab-is-dead-long-live-blab-d2f72449ddb8#.z7xrevf73).

Much like Blab, I was skeptical that Tsu would succeed from the word go, despite the fact that it briefly made the punny expression "Tsu me!" (translation: Follow Me On Tsu) a thing.

While I had several concerns that felt like 'Red Flags' to me, my primary concern was that Tsu ran afoul of the psychological phenomenon known as the 'Overjustification Effect:, as I explained on my blog: http://elifennell.com/tsu-risks-demotivating-users/

To be fair, there were probably many reasons that it failed to catch on, not the least reason being that it was a mishmash of social media and multi level marketing (virtually a pyramid scheme, in fact), and apart from its monetary promises it brought nothing unique or innovative to the table. Nonetheless, I'm not one of those people who hate to say 'I told you so', so... fill in the blank.

So long, Tsu! Or should I say, "Tsu long, and thanks for all the fish!"? (Hey, that's at least as clever as 'Tsu me!'.)

No, Abraham Lincoln Was NOT A 'Third Party Candidate'

There is a meme making the rounds on social media depicting Abraham Lincoln saying, "In 1860 I was 3rd Party. Was your vote wasted?" Unfortunately for whoever created the meme, it's at best inaccurate history, and at worst an out-and-out lie. As the following article points out:

"In the 1860 elections, the Republicans not only took the White House; they also won a majority of seats in both the Senate and the House. That’s a third party?

Yes, the Republican Party was relatively new, but it was never really a “third” party. Here’s the history:

Let’s go back to 1850. We already were locked into a two-party system, and the two major parties were the Democrats and the Whigs.

Let’s go back to 1850. We already were locked into a two-party system, and the two major parties were the Democrats and the Whigs.

The Whig party imploded in 1854 over the issue of slavery. Pro-slavery Whigs mostly joined the Democrats. Anti-slavery Whigs and some other factions met later that year to form the beginning of the Republican Party.

In the 1856 elections the Republicans won 90 out of 237 seats in the U.S. House, and they held 15 seats in the Senate, so the Republican Party very quickly took the place of the defunct Whigs to become one of the two major parties. It was never really a “third” party."

By comparison, the largest third parties running in 2016 are the Libertarian Party and the Green Party, who currently hold a grand total of 0 House Seats and 0 Senate Seats, and in fact don't even have a meaningful presence at any other level of elected government beit state, county, or local. And by the time the 2016 election concludes, they are universally expected to hold a whopping 0 House Seats and 0 Senate Seats, and to have virtually no presence at any level of elected government.

Google 'Hangouts On Air' Moving To YouTube

Google is finally doing what, in my opinion, they should have done long ago and moving Hangouts On Air, their Live Multiparty Video Platform, out of Google+ (where the feature was born) entirely and moving it into YouTube. (It has actually been possible for a long time to initiate a Hangout On Air from YouTube instead of Google+, but this just confused people further.)

No doubt some Google+ users will be disturbed by this (even though it will, of course, still be possible to Share HOA's socially to Google+, as well as other networks and services), but it just makes more sense for HOA's to be part of Google's hugely successful video-focused social network than part of the largely interest-focused Google+.

Moving HOA's fully over to YouTube can also help in an area where HOA's have always lagged: discoverability. Although there have always been many great Hangout On Air shows available, Google+ was never the ideal place for discovering them, as its focus as a network was never centered around video discovery, whereas that is pretty much entirely the focus of YouTube.

Florida Man Banned From Ordering Pizza After Too Many Crank Calls

A Florida man was banned by a Judge from ordering pizza delivery after repeatedly refusing to pay for the food or giving fake addresses, costing local businesses over $600.

He is unlikely to go to prison for his offenses and will likely continue to live as a free man, though one may perhaps ask whether life is worth it without the right to order that ambrosial creation of bread, cheese, and sauce.

Musician Stopped From Flying With Cello Because It Didn't Have A Travel Visa

British Airways denied a female cello player the right to seat her cello next to her on a flight from Zurich to Baltimore (where she was planning to attend a course with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra), even though she had paid for the seat, because the instrument didn't have a US ESTA Travel Visa.

For those unfamiliar with the practice, it's actually quite normal for musicians to book an extra seat for their musical instruments, and the cello player, Jane Beven, had done so multiple times in the past. British Airways, however, was not able to resolve the matter in time for her to make her flight.

She ended up switching to United Airlines, and as yet has not received any compensation for her ticket costs from British Airways.

The linked article below tries to put a positive spin on it, i.e. 'but it will come back focused on the parts that worked best and be BETTER THAN EVER!', but that's what you call 'failed startup speak'.

Online services that have already experienced a period of great public hype almost never come back better, or even last very long if they come back at all, and unlike a Google or Facebook who might keep an otherwise failed product alive for synergy with its ecosystem even if by itself it wasn't valuable, Blab belongs to no ecosystem it could add value to.

For both the creators or Blab and many of its users, it felt early on like there was some true magic that would surely stand the test of time. Marketers early adopted it voraciously; celebrities gave it test drives; media outlets praised it and gave it awards; teenagers made it an online home for their after school socializing with friends near and far.

Unfortunately, it also suffered the same issues as other products of its type: most of its more formal offerings (e.g. 'talking head shows') were boring and not suited for replay; most potential casual users these days aren't even interested in phone calls as a primary means of staying in-touch, let alone making video their go-to chat solution; monetization models were difficult to devise; attempts to incorporate it into major media fell short of the high standards of major media if not failed altogether due to unanticipated usage levels overloading the servers; etc..., etc...

And there is also the simple novelty factor: every new 'Live Video Platform' that gets media attention seems initially exciting, but that excitement wears off, and then the hype torch is passed to the next new thing (Facebook Live, for example, which is already losing its own lustre and becoming more well known for videos of police shootings than anything positive).

In Is Blab a 'Trust Accelerator'? (http://goo.gl/21Ol7N), I expressed some of my own doubts about some of the hype surrounding it when it was still relatively new and shiny:

"When you scratch the surface, success through Blab or a Hangout On Air or a YouTube Show or a Podcast or any other piece of content you share online is down to the efforts put into promoting, sharing, producing, distributing, and even repurposing the content as smaller clips, written transcripts, blogs based around all or parts of the content, and more. In the hands of the right person or group of people, an hour of video can become the raw material for an entire marketing campaign.

It also depends on the efforts you put in to build and connect with audiences, reaching out to and following up with leads, demonstrating authority, and generally doing those things that are in your business interest to do anyways.

Like any form of video, seeing someone ‘Live’ or even through Prerecorded videos can help with the Trust building process by demonstrating that you are, in fact, human, firstly, and secondly that you look like whatever profile pictures you’ve been using online to represent yourself, and that your knowledge and communicative style are basically consistent with what you put out there.

This doesn’t so much accelerate trust, as it helps you to get past a person’s most basic defensive mechanisms. We’ll call this ‘The Fear of Getting Catfished’, and while obviously underdeveloped in some people (or there wouldn’t be a show to inspire the name, right?), it is the reason most people didn’t give any money to that Nigerian Prince or try to cash out their winnings from the Spanish Lottery.

This isn’t a revelation, though, unique to Blab, it’s the basic argument, in fact, in favor of virtually all video marketing."

It appears that, in the end, Blab was never truly unique enough to become more than a shooting star, beautiful but short lived, like most online services and all Live Video services to-date (not counting those that are too new, at this point, to have proven their staying power).

How Plants Sense Electric Fields (and What This May Tell Us About Ebola)

Most people are aware that human and animal cells use electrical signals to communicate with each other. What many people are not aware of, is that plant cells also use electrical signals to communicate with each other, such as when injured or fed on by insects. And, perhaps not surprisingly, there is an evolutionary kinship of all of these, specifically in the TCP1 calcium channel.

Now, researchers at the university of Würzburg have identified the part of the channel where the detection of electrical field changes takes place.

While these findings are interesting in their own right, shedding light on how cells communicate with each other (or, in some species with mutated TCP1 genes, why they don't), it could also help researchers understand how the Ebola virus uses the TCP1 channel to... more »

Iceland's 'Pirate Party' Likely To Form Next Government

In the wake of the leaked Panama Papers, which forced the resignation of Iceland's Prime Minister Sigmundur Davið Gunnlaugsson, Iceland's ultra democratic and technocratic Pirate Party (yes, that's really what they're called) is projected to have a high chance of becoming the most powerful party of that North Atlantic island nation.

Their platform includes a radical version of direct democracy, greater government transparency, a new national Constitution, asylum for exiled American whistleblower Edward Snowden, and turning polling stations into Pokémon Go Pokéstops to increase youth voter turnout (seriously!).

Sadly, their platform makes no mention of pillaging, burning, burying treasure, wearing eyepatches, or saying argh, matey!

Florida Man Shoots Unarmed Ex In Women's Room, Claims 'Stand Your Ground'

A Florida man followed his unarmed ex girlfriend into a women's room at a Denny's and shot her in the face, breaking her jaw but not killing her.

Days earlier, he reportedly told her, “I bought a new gun and would love to use it on you and make it look like an accident or self-defense.”

So it should surprise no one that he is claiming 'Stand Your Ground', and that he claims she reached for some 'shiny object' he took to be threatening... despite the fact, as already stated, that she was unarmed, and that he followed her into a women's restroom, and the little fact that he told her he wanted to shoot her and make it look like self-defense, and has a history of violence against ex partners.

Sounds legit.

So, just so we're clear: Trump doesn't want anyone to shoot Hillary Clinton, he just wants everyone to know that she's a traitor to the United States and the cofounder of ISIS, a terrorist organization with which we are at war, who wants to take your guns away so you can't defend yourself, and she'll only get shot if Trump loses, which will only happen if she rigs the election. Oh, and Obama's a foreign born 'Secret Muslim' and founder of ISIS who wants to destroy America from the inside.

Well... that clears things up.

Jason Bourne - SPOILER FREE Review
 
Jason Bourne is the fifth installment in the Bourne film series, loosely based on the Bourne books by Robert Ludlum (though the two diverge significantly in content and tone), and the fourth installment starring Matt Damon.  (The Bourne Legacy, which many people don't even consider a true Bourne film due to Damon's absence, doesn't even include the titular character except by mention.)  It is the first time Damon has reprised the role in nearly a decade, and was therefore a hotly anticipated summer sequel.
 
The theme of the plot revolves, as have previous Bourne films, around the backstory of the titular character, who is still suffering a great deal of amnesia about his previous life as a CIA assassin, the people and events in his life that made him who he is, and the intrigue within 'The Company' that conspires todra... more »

Jason Bourne - SPOILER FREE Review
 
Jason Bourne is the fifth installment in the Bourne film series, loosely based on the Bourne books by Robert Ludlum (though the two diverge significantly in content and tone), and the fourth installment starring Matt Damon.  (The Bourne Legacy, which many people don't even consider a true Bourne film due to Damon's absence, doesn't even include the titular character except by mention.)  It is the first time Damon has reprised the role in nearly a decade, and was therefore a hotly anticipated summer sequel.
 
The theme of the plot revolves, as have previous Bourne films, around the backstory of the titular character, who is still suffering a great deal of amnesia about his previous life as a CIA assassin, the people and events in his life that made him who he is, and the intrigue within 'The Company' that conspires to draw him back into the world of subterfuge and Black Ops that 'birthed' him.
 
Bourne films basically boil down to three components: action, story, and technology, and it will therefore be best for the purpose of this review to address each one in turn.
 
 
Action
 
In terms of action pieces, Jason Bourne is a true Bourne film without a doubt, full of fights that feel real and brutal (and in which Bourne makes expert use of any objects near-at-hand as weapons), and vehicle chase scenes that straddle the line between pulse pounding and ridiculously over-the-top.

In the latter case, this was without a doubt the chapter which turned the ridiculousness factor of the chase scenes 'up to 11', as Spinal Tap would say.  On the other hand, and despite this, they were exciting to watch, and notably different than the previous Damon films, in which the chases tended to look and feel very similar from one chapter to the next.  As to the former, well... as I said, it's a Bourne film, though there were a couple early fight scenes that seemed gratuitous and only there to remind us, as if we needed reminding, that Bourne is badass.
 
 
Story
 
While Bourne movies have arguably never had the greatest stories, or at least not the greatest depth of storytelling, Jason Bourne truly strains credulity, and this is salvaged to a large degree only by the brilliant casting of Tommy Lee Jones as the main 'villain' figure.  At the same time, it is getting a little wearying to see Bourne regain his lost memories at the exact speed of the plot, as if amnesia worked that way outside of Bourne movies and soap operas.
 
Worse, unlike previous chapters of the series, this one attempts a very, very thinly veiled social allegory and satire that comes off as too 'on-the-nose'.  To give them credit, though, at least the screenwriters were attempting to give the storyline a 'Significance Of Moment' that speaks to the current concerns in our society about the overreach of intelligence agencies and the dangers of secretive collaborations between these agencies and other non-state players.  If I were giving grades, I'd give its story a B+ for effort.
 
 
Technology
 
This is, in truth, the one area in which the film really disappointed me.  Previous Bourne films broke the 'James Bond' mould of Secret Agent films by employing grounded-in-real-life spy technology.  Jason Bourne, by contrast, seems to dip at moments into the Mission Impossible well of 'just swallow the idea that such technology exists along with your buttered popcorn and don't question it' reservoir.
 
In fact,  and although it didn't intend to be humorous, one line in the movie (I'll just say it involved the words 'ecosystem' and 'apps') made me literally laugh out loud at the sheer, nonsensical absurdity of how unbelievable it was if you know anything about technology.  Another scene made me slightly furious between giggles, as although it pretended in all seriousness to be about real technology, the screenwriters might as well have inserted Hermione from the Harry Potter movies with a magic wand and an obliviate spell. 
 
Someone less tech savvy than I might not have caught these things, but I suspect even a lot of tech illiterate people will subconsciously lose some suspension-of-disbelief because of this decision to break from the technological realism of previous films.  No film, in fact, that wants its technology taken seriously should ever invoke the phrase 'Zoom and Enhance' or any equivalent.
 
 
Overall
 
If you like Bourne, or if you just love a great action flick that hits the ground running and never stops, Jason Bourne is a movie you will probably love as much as I did, and I would unflinchingly recommend it.

UK Bar Owner Stops Smartphone Users With Faraday Cage

Steve Tyler, owner of the Gin Tub in the UK, wanted to force his customers to put down their smartphones and talk to each other. So he came up with a unique solution: he turned his bar into a Faraday Cage.

This blocks the cellular signals to and from phones, forcing users to interact with each other... though doing nothing to prevent the persistent problem of Food Porn and Restaurant Selfies.

The risk here is that customers may not appreciate this and take their business elsewhere.

What do you think of this?

900 Million Android Devices 'At Risk' Of Quadrooter Malware? Nope.

You may have seen the blood chilling headlines: 900 million Android devices are supposedly 'at risk' of being infected by Quadrooter Malware. The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

There's just one problem: it's not true. In fact, not only is it not true, because Android already has built-in security that already prevents this 'threat', but the company behind this bogus story is none-too-subtly using it to promote their own product.

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

Florida To Residents: Stop Painting Turtles!

Florida's Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission is reminding Floridians not to paint the shells of wild turtles and tortoises.

While some may think this is harmless, it can, in fact, affect their ability to absorb nutrients from sunlight, cause respiratory problems, introduce harmful chemicals into their bloodstream, and make them more vulnerable to predators.

This is one case where we should all agree that 'Natural Is Beautiful'.
