Christopher Lira0*The Dates are the Art submission time frame for this event. I will be updating the start date everyday till we reach the ending date for submissions which will be oct. 1st* _9/27/12 edit:_ *The deadline is getting closer!! remember to email your submissions to both kaosq3k@gmail.com and manda.r.lira@gmail.com oct 1st is a few days away :)* Hi everyone many people have been asking me what this book is all about. Well this book is about Hope, it's about Love and It's about Strength, it's about saying "Life is beautiful, Cancer can suck it!"  8 months ago the love of my life Gladis was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer. When we broke the news to our kids @112903919681703164454 decided to create this art book "Art For The Heart" and asked artists on deviantart and the artists here on Google+ if they would help her by submitting pieces for this book so she can give it to her mom as a gift of Hope Strength Courage and Love. So between school, cross country and everything else in a teenage girls life she began working on this book collecting submissions, arranging the pages, adding memorable quotes from her mom, inspirational quotes and memories of things she loves about her mom.  This past week Wednesday Sept 12th after all the treatments (Hysterectomy, Lymph nodes removal, Chemo, external and internal radiation) Gladis's latest scan results came back. The results weren't what we had prayed for. This horrible disease has now spread to her lungs and possibly to her brain. My Gladis now has stage 4 cancer. This link here is Gladis's journey on whatnext.com http://www.whatnext.com/users/lirasgirl33  So getting back to Manda's art book Art For The Heart While Manda was editing this book this past week she came to me and told me she ran out of pages for the price range she was working in. So I told her just bump it up to the next price range which in turn opened up the book for 20 more pages till it bumps up in price again. This is when Manda and I came to you all here on Google+ again.  Here's the link to that original post https://plus.google.com/104857406109954440836/posts/bR1p4edhtdr after posting this @109602109099036550366 suggested I post this as an event so I took his wonderful advice and now here were are.  Since the original post I have 7 submissions already in my email! Thank you all that have already submitted!! Hopefully we get all 20 pages filled! and if by some chance we go over the 20 pages I will buy more pages or rearrange to book somehow to make everyone get their page. All art is beautiful. all will be accepted. The goal of this book is to bring a smile to Gladis's face and give her Hope and strength throughout this horrible journey she is on.  deadline for submissions is oct.1st. all submission can be emailed to kaosq3k@gmail.com or manda.r.lira@gmail.com You may also post them here in this event page as well. I think I covered everything if you still have any questions or any ideas suggestions I am open to anything and everytArt For The Heart2012-10-01 09:00:0043

The 10 Best Xbox One Games For Kids

Xbox is frequently thought of as a more "adult only" console, but not really the case.

I am frequently asked by parents or relatives.... "What game can I get my kids to play on Xbox One?" (and which 2 player games they can play with them)

If you know someone looking for a gift for kids who game, send them off this post....

......Canada... Making the rest of you look bad..... <3

"A recent study labelled you “The Freest Country in the World”, three of The Economist’s top five most liveable cities on the planet are in the Great White North, and, wait, what? Grain-guru Jim Murray has chosen a batch of Crown Royal rye as the year’s best whisky on earth? What the hell is going on over there?"

A good question.... One of the oldest torrents being actively seeded is from 1993 (an ascii version of The Matrix, appropriately enough). It got me thinking about how easy it is to hoard data these days and inspired tonight's question; What do you think is the oldest data that you still have easy access to and why do you still hold onto it?

Geek Question of the Day: So I heard today that one of the oldest torrents being actively seeded is from 1993 (an ascii version of The Matrix, appropriately enough). It got me thinking about how easy it is to hoard data these days and inspired tonight's question; What do you think is the oldest data that you still have easy access to and why do you still hold onto it? This isn't about old computers, just the bits we drag along from one machine to the next. Data and programs count of pretty much any variety. #gqotd

CDC study on Gun ownership as a risk factor for homicide in your home

In 1993, the CDC published in The New England Journal Of Medicine a science control study of Gun ownership as a risk factor for homicide in your home. Science folks. This is not once side VS another. Science. The paper linked here goes into great details about the methods used to create and test a control group vs homicide victims in control areas. Feel free to read all the sciencey details it if you wish.

SCIENCE RESULTS Highlights Of "Does owning a gun increase the risk of homicide in your home" include...
50% of the homicides occurred in the context of a quarrel or a romantic triangle..
76% of victims were killed by someone known to them
3.6% were Homicides by a stranger (others were unknown,police etc)
21% occurred because of a robbery, rape, or burglary etc...

SCIENCE RESULTS Highlights Of "Does owning a gun increase the risk of homicide in your home" include...
50% of the homicides occurred in the context of a quarrel or a romantic triangle..
76% of victims were killed by someone known to them
3.6% were Homicides by a stranger (others were unknown,police etc)
21% occurred because of a robbery, rape, or burglary etc...
49% of the homicides in the home were from gunshot wounds.....
43% attempted resistance but only 5% of the victims attempted to use a gun in self-defense (unsuccessfully)..
29%(victims) vs 17%(control) kept the gun unlocked...
26% vs 12% kept guns loaded....
32% vs 22% kept guns "primarily for self defense"...
and ... so on..

The conclusion by the CDC in the Journal of Medicine.... A gun kept in the home is far more likely to be involved in the death of a member of the household than it is to be used to kill in self-defense. The use of illicit drugs and a history of physical fights in the home are important risk factors for homicide in the home. Rather than confer protection, guns kept in the home are associated with an increase in the risk of homicide by a family member or intimate acquaintance.

More studies should be done.. regularly.. but in 1996... 3 years after this study was published... the NRA lobbied Congress and had a ban put on the CDC doing any more studies. First by cutting 2.6 million in funding from the CDC (the exact amount used on gun data research) and then outright passing an amendment that said - None of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.

The scientists got the message. There has been only 1 other study done by the CDC in the area of gun data since.
