For me, this would be my way too.

"Years ago, Charlie, a highly respected orthopedist and a mentor of mine, found a lump in his stomach. He had a surgeon explore the area, and the diagnosis was pancreatic cancer. This surgeon was one of the best in the country. He had even invented a new procedure for this exact cancer that could triple a patient’s five-year-survival odds–from 5 percent to 15 percent–albeit with a poor quality of life. Charlie was uninterested. He went home the next day, closed his practice, and never set foot in a hospital again. He focused on spending time with family and feeling as good as possible. Several months later, he died at home. He got no chemotherapy, radiation, or surgical treatment. Medicare didn’t spend much on him."

Christie's right hand person. Is this why Trump postponed his VP announcement?


Mr. Samson admitted in court that he used his position as chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to pressure United Airlines to reinstate a route that benefited him.

Beautiful.

"ON MONDAY, A world-renowned Italian composer and pianist, Ludovico Einaudi, performed an historic concert in the Arctic Ocean to raise awareness about climate change.

Ludovico performed his own piano composition, "Elegy for the Arctic" whilst floating on a platform against the backdrop of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway. The musician is known for his composition for the film Black Swan and the television serial Doctor Zhivago."

A world-renowned Italian composer has played a melancholy solo piano performance on a floating platform in the Arctic Ocean to send a conservation message to world leaders.

Don't mess with my child.

The Boy is in fair condition and Mom was treated and released.

"As Pitkin County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Buglione told the Associated Press, the woman ran over to the mountain lion and pulled one of its paws away. That’s when she saw that the cat actually had the boy’s head in its mouth. Undeterred, Buglione said the mom pried the mountain lion’s jaws open until her son was free. The animal bit and scratched her, but she bravely fought the beast off. The startled mom then grabbed her son and ran indoors.

The little boy had been viciously mauled and suffered lacerations to his head and neck area, which included deep cuts and bite marks. (...)"

Interesting, humorous and fits me like a glove.

"We just don’t have the cojones our parents had. We aren’t prepared to tell our kids that they won’t have it if they don’t work for it, because we can’t bear to see them go without and we can’t bear to see them fail. We’ve given them a whole lot of stuff; stuff that will break down, wear out, get lost, go out of style, and lose value."

I know, which is why I instituted it. I want to instill in them the idea that if you do what you need to, you can have fun stuff.

Thanks to Nico for this.

"Simply put, smart dust is what will happen if miniaturization continues on its current trajectory—the point at which devices can be scattered to the winds in the millions, billions, or even trillions to measure the world in breathtaking detail. Big data and the Internet of Things gone wild.

It isn't hard to imagine the amazing and terrifying implications.

Of course, micro-lenses are a simple component, and we aren't likely to see true smart dust for awhile yet. But there are projects pushing in that direction. And in an indication of where things sit, Gartner does include smart dust on its annual hype cycle list of emerging technologies—albeit at its most speculative spot.

Whatever the future may hold, rest assured, this is only the beginning."


Miniaturization is one of the most world-shaking trends of the last several decades. Computer chips now have features measured in billionths of a meter. Sensors that... read more

Love this:

"Monday is Independence Day, so all across the country teams held pregame ceremonies to celebrate the Fourth of July. Giant flags were sprawled across the outfield, guest singers sang the National Anthem, and post-game fireworks were enjoyed by all.

As part of their pregame ceremony prior to Monday's game with the Orioles , the Dodgers had a trained bald eagle fly around Dodger Stadium. What's more American than a bald eagle and baseball? Nothing. Nothing I tell you.

There was only one small problem. After the bald eagle finished its routine flying around the ballpark, it did not return to its handler. No, the eagle hightailed it and flew right out of Dodger Stadium, presumably in search of glorious freedom."

A video is provided on the Great Escape. 
What better way to celebrate Independence Day than by watching a bald eagle gain its freedom?

Tuesday June 21, 2016


The month of June's Full Moon's name is the Full Strawberry Moon. June's Full Strawberry Moon got its name because the Algonquin tribes knew it as a signal to gather ripening fruit. It was often known as the Full Rose Moon in Europe and the Honey Moon.

Rachel Winard eloquently expresses my grief and that of my brothers and sisters.

Do Not Ignore the Fact That the Orlando Shooting Was a Hate Crime

"I don’t know what to say to the politicians, the journalists, the neighbors who perpetuate homophobia by erasing its clear role in Sunday’s events. The shooter claimed to have ties to ISIL. That doesn’t change the fact that this was a hate crime, perpetrated against the gay community in a club – a safe haven, a sacred space. That this was a massacre of epic proportions levied at MY community. My people. My family. Because we are all family. Because we’ve learned to be each others’ sisters and brothers, and to look out for one another when no one else was willing. Although I didn’t know any of the victims personally, these beautiful people were my community. My family."
The identities of the victims are as important as the shooter's

Now let's see who is listening. 
Bernie Sanders is telling the American people the truth about the depravity of corporate capitalism, he's telling the American people the truth about the crimes of Wall Street, he's telling them the truth about the corrupt political and economic and banki
