Between two Nexus 7s (2012 Android 5.1.1and 2013 Android 6.0.1)
Fails at "Creating access code" most of the time. Simply returns to the Welcome screen

When I do get a code it fails at "Connecting..." and returns "There was an error while connecting to Inkwire server".

The 2013 is the only one that has gotten to the point of making an access code. I tried sending a link via Hangouts and both returned "Unfortunately, Inkwire has stopped"

but... usually when it fails to connect, I can see the connection page behind the toast or whatever that says "Connecting...". Sometimes, however, it switches to a black screen first.

'Now, many folks calculate the death rates of the groups by comparing the numbers killed, to the corresponding numbers of that group in the general population … but you can’t do that. It leads to wildly incorrect conclusions. Here is an example that shows why comparing numbers of police shootings to the corresponding number of individuals in the general population leads to big errors:

Men make up about 50% of the general population, but men comprise 96% of those killed by police. Does this huge number of “excess male deaths” prove that the police are being sexist and that they are biased against men? Does this imbalance in the number of men killed mean that we need a “Male Lives Matter Too” movement?

Of course not. Instead, it simply demonstrates that men both commit and are arrested for far more crimes of violence than women; that men are far more likely than women to both carry and use weapons; that men are far more likely to both threaten and commit serious violence against a police officer than are women; and most importantly, that men are far more likely than women to violently resist arrest.'
Note: While not the usual fare of WUWT, after some discussion with Mr. Eschenbach, I decided that this was an impartial data analysis, and that publishing it would be a public service that may be h…

Pretty much every statistic used to support the idea that black people are systematically oppressed can be used to say the same of men. No one knows what to do with this fact.

So... basically, Hillary's platform. yay.
Ivanka Trump said Thursday her father would champion equal pay for women and making childcare more widely accessible as president, two decidedly progressive issues that Donald Trump has not talked about during his campaign.

Equal pay is required under Federal Law, so it is a Faux Issue! Sure she and Donald have some "Liberal Ideals". They have been raised with almost total exposure to the New York media. Conservatives have always wanted people to be treated equally as well as support families. The difference is our economy must be strong enough to allow and encourage employers to offer benefits for employees, not have the Federal Government mandate such benefits. Market competition causes better benefits with a strong economy.

Wait... are they saying that it was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (dum dum dum) STAR TREKS!

Science writers suck.
The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) was used to observe galaxy cluster Abell S1063, as it was 4 billion years ago. The phenomenon of 'gravitational lensing' seen in the image is created by the cluster's huge mass and reveals light from galaxies far beyond it. The spirit of 'Star Trek' is apparent with HST's handlers, comprised of a 'diverse crew [that] work together to peacefully explore the Universe," according to the European Space Agency. (Full ...

Mojin : The Lost Legend

I stopped it at "Loading - 68%" because I was already bored with the stereotypes... perhaps that was unfair...

This is the story people should be telling, but I suspect it will pass by because the victim is not an angry thug with suspicious behavior.

In fact, because of this, the officer involved is already being investigated by the DA. That's what happens when it's clear cut. I'm willing to bet that the officer had his finger on the trigger instead of on the trigger guard, and stupidly shot this man for no reason. If so, he needs to go to jail.

The caretaker of an autistic man was shot in the leg by a North Miami police officer Monday, after a 911 call warned of a suicidal man in the street with a gun. There was no indication that a weapon was found.

+Bill DeWitt I watched 5 hours of the Republican National Convention as it unfolded last night on C-Span with no breaks or talking head opinions...just interviewing the people on the convention floor and taking phone call comments AFTER the convention adjourned. Absolutely no opinions by C-Span reporters. Then I turn to NBC and their lead on the convention is a complete twisted distortion of what happened. Watching NBC, I felt like Alice after jumping through the rabbit hole. I have seen the enemy of a peaceful society and it is the media. National news is faux news and a propaganda machine. I plan on watching the Democrat Convention on C-Span too. C-Span did a great job. No more national news if I can avoid them.

So, yes, I agree this incident won't make national news because it doesn't play into their narrative of race baiting that only blacks are shot.

As I pride myself on knowing all the words except various technical jargon, I nonetheless surprise myself from time to time.

I had always thought there were two words, "vigilance" and "viligence". I must have, at some point, have gotten diligence" mixed up in there, or someone mixed them up using them to me.

Fortunately for me, this doesn't diminish the idea that I know all the words, it just means I know some which are not yet words.

I recently saw a show that had some sort of a conflict between two women in an apartment building where one kept moving the wall to make her place bigger. It was not Arrested Development. Anyone know what I am talking about?

I think this was a modern sitcom. I almost certainly watched it on netflix but I don't see anything in my history that reminds me of it.

KLWP Questions  - 
 
Now that I've had a chance to study Orreries (astronomical clocks) I want to do some detailed work on making a real KLWP setup with orrery, clock, weather, phone status, app drawer, music player etc, all in a complicated steampunk kind of console.

Unfortunately what I have not done in this time is study how to use KLWP with any depth. I mean I have the basics and I can throw something together, but I really want to make this nice, so I want to ask a few questions - like how best to structure the individual parts in the whole, are komponents better than layering everything in one pile etc.

And that's actually the first question, I have made a moon phase KLWP, should I export it as a component to use in the final assembly, or directly add it to my original work (below) in the place of the moon image somehow?

Right at the very last second this seems to be showing the properties of the Jupiter-like atmosphere. A swiftly revolving core under a fluid envelope.

"Would you like to learn more?" Why, yes, thank you, I would!
Introduction
I circle back people who interact through posting in a considerate and reasonable way. Thank you for circling me and please join the conversation.

I'm retired from being a homeschooling SAHD and now have empty nest syndrome. I've gone back to college to get a degree in Biological Anthropology. I'm an obsessive science-fiction reader, a compulsive inventor, and I have a disordered apartment in a college town. I play the Ukulele in a style borrowed from John King, may he rest in peace. I'm on the spectrum and I feel good about that. I can just about program my way out of a wet paper bag, I've been working with Artificial Intelligence for 10 years, I've recently invented a new method of ceramic construction, a new type of flute, a new knot (salamander hitch), and I make my own bacon fat mayonnaise. I've been working on my own constructed language for 30 years, but I don't have anyone to speak it with. I'm finally learning Japanese. I believe that we have an immaterial part which science is not yet able to measure, but that when, some day, we are able to, it still won't remove the spiritual aspect of it.

This is just a coffee house, a really good one, but nothing trendy and fabulous. That's what I like about it. There are separate rooms, quiet tables, and good coffee. Perfect for students or conversation with friends. No, they don't have professional performing Baristas's , but they have friendly servers. If you want something fancy, go somewhere else. But if you like coffee and quiet times with friends, it's a great place for that. Plus!... occasional amateur music.

A great old fashioned movie house with interesting architectural details, large screens, live stages, art gallery and an eclectic snack bar with OBC root beer and local wines. A great place to see independent or special interest movies you won't see at the franchise multiplex cinema.

I had coffee there while waiting for something else. And while everything looked good, I didn't get a chance to try anything. The coffee, however, was great.
