OH MY GOSH. IT'S A DINGLEHOPPER.
 Those of you who don't know what this is have no childhood.

If there are people that don't know what this is it just means they didn't buy into Walt Disney.

Just trying to boost the signal.
 
The FCC  (Federal Communications Commission ) is proposing rules that would allow ISPs (internet service providers) like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon to pick and choose your internet plan, what you do have access to and what you do not.

How does it work now: if you have an internet connection – you have access to all of the internet, the good, the bad, and the ugly. If you have internet access you have access to it all, free and paid. You have a choice to what you see and what you don’t. 

How it will work if this bill passes: your ISP will be able to give you different access plans to what you are able to see, which websites will be served and which ones you won’t have access to. More than that, this bill will also make it possible for your ISP to charge the website owners for making their websites available within their network. It will open a door to all kinds of abuse… because MONEY. It’ll start slowly, by reducing the load speeds and degrading the quality, but It’ll happen. 

If you are a user, it will affect you. If you are a website owner it will affect you. Most of us don’t realize just how important this is: right now you have a voice, but you may not have it for very long. If this bill passes, you may not have a place to speak up. So I urge you to do it now.

It is happening in the US, but it is only a matter of time until it happens where you are as well. You don’t have to be from the US to sign the petition and stop this madness. 

Some of you may know who I am, what I do and why. My project is a free health and fitness website oriented for at-home training and budget nutrition. It is a global resource dedicated to making fitness accessible and it is supported exclusively via donations (no pay-for-downloads, no ads, no product placement). Thousands all over the globe who cannot afford a gym membership, personal trainer’s time or even a pair of trainers use my website and it is changing lives every single day it is up. Projects like that will be the first ones to be eradicated. 

Everything we love about the web, the freedom of expression and freedom of information, everything we take for granted can be taken away from us. Speak up now, fight for what matters. 

Sign the petition:

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky WEB from me.

Do I know anyone with these skills?

I have a friend looking to fill a position.  It's in the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area.  I know nothing more than that, but if you do have these skills and are looking for work, let me know.

Well, isn't this a fine pickle.
 
A U.S. law now being enforced in Canada requires all banks to share the private information of some clients with the Internal Revenue Service.

Canada’s banks will soon begin formally operating as informants for the United States Internal Revenue Service – the IRS. Financial institutions must ask all clients that want to open a new account where they were born and possibly where their parents were born.

NASA’s Warp Drive Project: “Speeds” That Could Take a Spacecraft to Alpha Centauri in Two Weeks Even Though the System is 4.3 Light-Years Away, Video http://b4in.org/c4Hg

A  few months ago, physicist Harold White stunned the aeronautics world when he announced that he and his team at NASA had begun work on the development of a faster-than-light warp drive.

His proposed design, an ingenious re-imagining of an Alcubierre Drive, may eventually result in an engine that can transport a spacecraft to the nearest star in a matter of weeks — and all without violating 
 
 The idea came to White while he was considering a rather remarkable equation formulated by physicist Miguel Alcubierre. In his 1994 paper titled, “The Warp Drive: Hyper-Fast Travel Within General Relativity,”
 
Alcubierre suggested a mechanism by which space-time could be “warped” both in front of and behind a spacecraft.
 
Michio Kaku dubbed Alcubierre’s notion a “passport to the universe.” It takes advantage of a quirk in the cosmological code that allows for the expansion and contraction of space-time, and could allow for hyper-fast travel between interstellar destinations.

Essentially, the empty space behind a starship would be made to expand rapidly, pushing the craft in a forward direction — passengers would perceive it as movement despite the complete lack of acceleration.
 
White speculates that such a drive could result in “speeds” that could take a spacecraft to Alpha Centauri in a mere two weeks — even though the system is 4.3 light-years away.
 
In terms of the engine’s mechanics, a spheroid object would be placed between two regions of space-time (one expanding and one contracting).
 
A “warp bubble” would then be generated that moves space-time around the object, effectively repositioning it — the end result being faster-than-light travel without the spheroid (or spacecraft) having to move with respect to its local frame of reference.
 
“Remember, nothing locally exceeds the speed of light, but space can expand and contract at any speed,

I promised WORLDBUILDERS that if they made it to $500,000 raised I would read Green Eggs and Ham ob video. They did, so I did. I hope you enjoy it.
