Misuse Of ADHD Drugs By Young Adults Drives Rise In ER Visits - NPR
Young adults were more likely to get in trouble with Adderall and its generic form than they were Ritalin. The drugs have a reputation as helping to enhance mental performance.

Government should not work this way. Protecting business models at the expense of innovation should not be allowed.

Ever wonder about really odd words? I thought this word's use was fairly recent... but then I saw a clip of an old "King of the Hill" episode and thought it dated to the '90s, but its use dates back as far as 1934! Amaze-za-zing.

Won't have me as a customer until this is addressed....

"There is no native Sling app for Apple TV , and Sling's promised compatibility on that product with AirPlay from an iOS device has not yet worked in our tests."

#sling #slingfail
Sling TV is a new $20-per-month live TV package with 16 channels, including ESPN, AMC, TNT, CNN, History, HDTV and the Disney Channel. How does it work, how can you get it -- and will it let you quit cable?

Amazing technology. You could store 360,000 HD movies on this disk and not worry about it ever degrading.

So I am confronted with loosing my email client of choice, Mailbox.app by Dropbox, within 30 days. But this also brings to mind another irritation of mine, which is, just how many apps do I need to switch between to keep up on correspondance? To fully cycle through all means of communication I have to check email, Google Hangouts (for SMS, MMS, voicemail, etc), Messages.app, Twitter, FB Messenger, and a few other miscellaneous apps. All separately running; all separately consuming computer resources; all generating their individual, separate notifications.

So here is a short list of what I would love to see in an app that would manage this nightmare and help me generate tasks, calendar events and replies to all my communication.

1. Unified message box - Has the ability to receive not only email from various accounts, but a modular plugin architecture allows SMS, MMS, Chat, Hangouts, Google Voice, Twitter DMs, Facebook IMs etc. to all be part of the 'inbox'. One place to go to act on, reply and correspond. Responses would default to the native communications protocol. In other words, if you received a Facebook IM, you would default to replying by Facebook IM, but you COULD switch to another protocol to reply.

1.a. The modular plugin would describe to the app how to 'speak' with the service, how to recognize certain types of data within the message (dates, numbers, etc.), what icon to use to represent the message source, and some kind of CSS/javascript to create an interface WITHIN the app's message pane.

2. Swipeable actions - Swipe left to defer, delegate or make a RPC to another program. Swipe right to acknowledge. Swipe left or right and hold to create an automated rule. Mailbox.app did this well! Just need to make it more robust.

2.a. RPC - An email arrives requesting a meeting. Data detectors recognize the format and an option on the swipe menu is to create a calendar entry for the meeting. A voicemail message arrives from Google Voice, and a swipe menu option would be to place a call via your iPhone or another option to send an SMS. A SMS message arrives and you can respond directly to the SMS from within the app. A Twitter DM arrives and you can respond directly from within the app, or select a swipeable function that auto-replies.

2.b. Swipe left and hold will allow you to do most of the same things as just swiping left, but gives you automation options, so that certain types of messages can be dealt with automatically.

2.c. Swipe right and hold will allow automation of acknowledgement and archiving.

3. Notifications on mobile and workstation from ONLY the unified messaging app. Turn off the notifications from other, individual apps.

4. Smart filters on the side would allow you to view all messages by service type, by person, by date range or by actions.

5. Both workstation and mobile platforms.

Email clients that have some, but not features I am looking for: Spark (no desktop version), Unified Inbox, Inbox, Nylas N1, Airmail, Apple Mail.app, Outlook.

Very moving. Great speaker. Learned much.
Ten days after 9/11, a shocking attack at a Texas mini-mart shattered the lives of two men: the victim and the attacker. In this stunning talk, Anand Giridharadas, author of "The True American," tells the story of what happened next. It's a parable about the two paths an American life can take, and a powerful call for reconciliation.

If you hear a politician say...

1. that the government should have "back door" access to encrypted traffic...
2. that Snowden is to blame for our lack of intelligence for terrorist...
3. that we should shut down and block web sites to prevent terrorism...

...you should turn around and run the other direction. Their 'stupid' will rub off on you.

Story

Just ask me...
Introduction
I live for technology. At age ten I started dabbling with BASIC and by 14 was using the audio data port on an Apple ][+ to digitize Duran Duran's 'Wild Boys' using assembler. Beagle Brothers is still my favorite software company to this day.

Along the way I took a right turn and explored my artistic side. I studied graphic design, pottery and many other art mediums.

Kids, life, money, all steered me back to the world of technology. I still occasionally use my artistic skills, but not as often as I like.

I love to learn, so please share your experiences with me.

4 incredible kids and a great wife.

If you are not looking for anything more than a clean room, comfortable bed, TV and basic breakfast, then the price probably can't be beat. The staff was also very pleasant. The pool is outdoors, which was a bit of a bummer for the kids.

If you are looking for the perfect relaxing evening with someone, skip the bar scene and visit Sugar Clay. Sangria, wine or beer and live music come together in the cedars and elms of the Loess Hills for a wonderful experience.
