A reporter in Venice, CA was robbed of his Google Glasses and a laptop yesterday.  This would not be news if it were simply the laptop.  I have to think the thief knew what was taken though.
The attack comes just days after another pair was yanked off a reporter’s face.

This is what I was talking about when I posted about Glass and the fire service.  I am not really surprised that someone else was running with the same idea that has been churning in my head.

I know that I should not expect privacy from my work email but what about the free email providers out there?

I was reading a discussion here yesterday about a guy that would not wear a Google smart watch for fear that they would track his actions.  Where should the line be drawn?

I think the first step is to be a little clear as to what we're afraid of.

Who cares if Google tracks your actions? What matters is what they do with that information. What are you really afraid Google might do? That' what we need to think about and protect against.

What are your feelings about an antidote for a narcotic #overdose?   #Narcan up the nose is remarkably effective so people do not have to worry about needles, etc.  In many ways, overdoses are much more routine than cardiac arrests now.  My biggest concern is probably that anyone carrying it should know how to manage an airway and use Narcan until the respiratory effort starts again, not a full dose so that they end up with a pissed off abuser and I fear the effects of the Narcan wearing off before the narcotic is out of their system.

I really do not think that the safety net of this drug will push others to try or further abuse the drug.  Those that will abuse, do not think they will overdose.

I think they outcome of this debate ends up with 1) increase the likelihood of survival or 2) increase the likelihood that they will kill themselves

Thanks you +Alton Brown  for this tidbit.  It appears Oreo cookies needs to be added as controlled substances.

Based on the available schedule, I expect it should go under Schedule I.  Clearly there is no accepted medical use and has a high potential for abuse.

Schedule I Controlled Substances

Substances in this schedule have no currently accepted medical use in the United States, a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision, and a high potential for abuse.

Some examples of substances listed in Schedule I are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), peyote, methaqualone, and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine ("Ecstasy").

Schedule II/IIN Controlled Substances (2/2N)

Substances in this schedule have a high potential for abuse which may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.

Examples of Schedule II narcotics include: hydromorphone (Dilaudid®), methadone (Dolophine®), meperidine (Demerol®), oxycodone (OxyContin®, Percocet®), and fentanyl (Sublimaze®, Duragesic®).  Other Schedule II narcotics include: morphine, opium, and codeine.

Examples of Schedule IIN stimulants include: amphetamine (Dexedrine®, Adderall®), methamphetamine (Desoxyn®), and methylphenidate (Ritalin®).

Other Schedule II substances include: amobarbital, glutethimide, and pentobarbital.

Schedule III/IIIN Controlled Substances (3/3N)

Substances in this schedule have a potential for abuse less than substances in Schedules I or II and abuse may lead to moderate or low physical dependence or high psychological dependence.

Examples of Schedule III narcotics include: combination products containing less than 15 milligrams of hydrocodone per dosage unit (Vicodin®), products containing not more than 90 milligrams of codeine per dosage unit (Tylenol with Codeine®), and buprenorphine (Suboxone®).

Examples of Schedule IIIN non-narcotics include: benzphetamine (Didrex®), phendimetrazine, ketamine, and anabolic steroids such as Depo®-Testosterone.

Schedule IV Controlled Substances

Substances in this schedule have a low potential for abuse relative to substances in Schedule III.

Examples of Schedule IV substances include: alprazolam (Xanax®), carisoprodol (Soma®), clonazepam (Klonopin®), clorazepate (Tranxene®), diazepam (Valium®), lorazepam (Ativan®), midazolam (Versed®), temazepam (Restoril®), and triazolam (Halcion®).

Schedule V Controlled Substances

Substances in this schedule have a low potential for abuse relative to substances listed in Schedule IV and consist primarily of preparations containing limited quantities of certain narcotics.

Examples of Schedule V substances include: cough preparations containing not more than 200 milligrams of codeine per 100 milliliters or per 100 grams (Robitussin AC®, Phenergan with Codeine®), and ezogabine.

Then sugar should also be added since that cream filling is only crisco plus sugar and flavoring. Lots of people would just love to see sugar banned.

This is not good news!  I hope they made these suckers flexible enough that they can be flashed or updated some reasonable way.

I am considering a tankless water heater(s) and doing away with the oil fired boiler keeping a reserve tank to temperature.  It seems like it would be a win-win (no more keeping the water reserve hot and no more oil consumption during the summer) but I cannot find enough information to convince myself that this is a wise move.  Seemingly simple tasks of calculating GPM utilization in the house at any one time just complicates this task.  Should each usage zone have a separate heater or one biggie for the house?  Finally, is electric or propane the right way to heat the on-demand water (and why are there no oil fired on-demands out there)?
Quick tip on how to measure the specific flow rate from your faucet or shower head measured in gallons per minute (GPM).
