The fact that so many people are upset over the death of a little Syrian boy and haven't even registered the fact in their brains that US drones have been blowing up little children for years illustrates the fact that if there are no pictures or the media is not covering it, people can pretend that what they don't see, what they are not shown, isn't really happening.

It also goes to show that most people are compassionate human beings and will get quite upset when they see a small dead child on the news, and they are fully capable of imagining how horrible it must be for the parents and can see how horrible it would be if it happened to them.

And that's why the media shows certain deaths but not others. If they are showing a small dead Syrian boy, then there is an agenda. The people are supposed to get outraged at a particular someone.

Of course they refuse to show or report on the collateral damage from the US war machine, because then the people would become outraged at the USG.

And so, amazingly, the USG continues to kill small children at a steady rate, and it matters not if people hear about it or not, because they are not hearing about it from the official mainstream media, and there are no pictures or videos.

Millions and millions of trained humans who cannot believe or react to anything that is not prepackaged and presented to them through the official information channels. Sick.

If anyone is interested. The first version of my slide deck on the #Java  8 Date Time API is posted.  

I used +Dan Allen's Asciidoctor.
It isn't possible to format a calendar. January is represented by 0 instead of 1, a source of bugs. Calendar isn't type-safe; for example, you must pass an int-based constant to the get(int field) method. (In fairness, enums weren't available when Calendar was released.) ...

+Peter Robinson I purchased an UDOO Quad board, came in the mail yesterday. I'm not overly happy with Ubuntu, and how things don't seem to work well... I'd like to use Fedora, but it looks like support for it isn't in 20, only in Rawhide. How can I get started using Rawhide? Or can I backport things into Fedora 20 for support?

Yet again, "women are not objects, they're not sex symbols". That's what we're told right? Then you see images like this; yes, she's dressed, and dressed nicely, but the pose and the semi-reveling way the blouse is buttoned? Does that say "not a sex symbol" to you? They say a picture is worth 1000 words. What's this one saying?

I agree it is a delicate issue. I don't agree with the portrayal of women in the media, nor do I think modesty and improper thoughts should lie solely on the side of women. If anything we should teach our boys to keep a clean mind.

Sure dressing modestly can help but ultimately what one person thinks is up to them, regardless of external influences.

It seems to me that iProvo and Utopia have provided little more than broken promises, mis-management, corruption, and higher taxes.

I say it is time to try something different.  Discounts on taxes, free pole rentals and office space seem to me a small price to pay for game changing internet service in the community.

Pete should have found a way to offer a similar deal to this community long ago.

Having an appointment (and a Honda) makes a lot of difference. Before when we had a pre-owned from them, it was a Dodge, we'd wait and wait to get even an oil change done. Don't have that problem anymore.
