Actually, it is a big deal. The newfound privacy conundrum presented by installing a device that can literally listen to everything you're saying represents a chilling new development in the age of internet-connected things. By buying a smart speaker, you're effectively paying money to let a huge tech company surveil you. And I don't mean to sound overly cynical about this, either. Amazon, Google, Apple, and others say that their devices aren't spying on unsuspecting families. The only problem is that these gadgets are both hackable and prone to bugs. read more


Authorities have recovered the body of a Nebraska woman whose disappearance after a Tinder date last month triggered a massive search and bizarre social media posts from two persons of interest in the tragic mystery. Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said Tuesday that "analysis of digital evidence" led authorities to a body in rural Clay County they believe is that of Sydney Loofe, 24, who vanished three weeks ago. "We do believe that there is evidence of foul play," Bliemeister said. Bliemeister expressed a "strong belief" that the body is that of Loofe, who was reported missing Nov. 16 after failing to show up at her job at a Lincoln home improvement store. He said formal confirmation would be made in the coming days. Bliemeister provided no further details on the cause of death or circumstances surrounding the discovery. Investigators had been using Loofe's cellphone signal to retrace her movements in the hours before she disappeared. www.youtube.com

Do: Sit in a chair, feet flat on the ground, legs uncrossed, with your back supported and without talking, for at least five minutes before you get your blood pressure measured.
Don't: Exercise, consume caffeine or smoke within 30 minutes of your test.
Do: Empty your bladder before your blood pressure is taken.
Don't: Sit or lie on the exam table. Whelton says that can result in a falsely low blood pressure reading.
Do: Roll up your sleeve so the blood pressure cuff rests on bare skin, not clothing.
Don't: Let your arm dangle or rest in your lap during the reading. It should be supported on a surface such as a desk. read more


A saliva test may someday be able to diagnose a concussion and predict how long symptoms last, according to a study published Monday in the JAMA Pediatrics.

A concussion is one type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow or jolt to either the head or the body. Though not life-threatening, these injuries to the brain can be serious and cause symptoms of headache (or "pressure" in the head), nausea, vomiting, dizziness, balance problems, double or blurry vision, sluggishness, confusion, memory problems and difficulty concentrating.
In their study, Penn State College of Medicine researchers found five small molecules called microRNAs in saliva with real potential for identifying concussive symptoms in children, teens and young adults. MicroRNAs influence protein activities throughout the body, and they are easily measured in biofluids, including blood, cerebrospinal fluid and saliva, according to the authors.

#9 Baloney. This is eliminating state's rights that states have held since the beginning of our country.

Does your Baloney come with a pickle, because you're making a big deal of it..... ?

From the link:

There is no federal statutory law concerning the issuance of concealed-carry permits. All fifty states have passed laws allowing qualified individuals to carry certain concealed firearms in public, either without a permit or after obtaining a permit from a designated government authority at the state and/or local level.

Since all 50 states have laws allowing CCW why not make it so you only need one license for all 50 states?
