The earliest form of English is called Old English or Anglo-Saxon (c. 550–1066 CE). Old English developed from a set of North Sea Germanic dialects originally spoken along the coasts of Frisia, Lower Saxony, Jutland, and Southern Sweden by Germanic tribes known as the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes.

Oh my goodness! The professors letter is a delight!!
Her language facility is laser sharp.
Not only a rebuttal to the criticisms uttered, but a clear and concise explanation of #blacklivesmatter.
The ideas, ideals and information encompassed in her writing- I think it is awesome.

The ACA is, and has been working for fairer, easier Tax laws for us expats. This is a statement made to a committee asking for information about taxpayers all across the US. And the ACA highlighted problems US Expats face - penalized for living out of country.
The ACA site is worth knowing as an US Expat, and has a wide range of information. And they respond quickly to questions and are interested in communication, hearing the problems people are having with taxes and sometimes can help.

A long read.

'Cashless society' is a euphemism for the "ask-your-banks-for-permission-to-pay society".

The 'shadow economy' is a derogatory term used by elites to describe the economic activities of people they neither understand nor care about.

... cash hampers central banks from setting negative interest rates. In the absence of cash, everyone must keep their money in the form of digital bank deposits. During recessions central banks could then use the banking system to deliberately corrode people's deposits via negative charges, 'inspiring' them to spend rather than hoard.

And so we get Visa's Cashfree and Proud campaign. If people really were ashamed of cash, they wouldn't need ads to tell them. Visa must engineer that shame to teach you that what you want is the same as what they want. And if you don't want it, just remember that cashless society is inevitable. Don't get left behind.___Paying by card is convenient. And comes with a non-cash price.

And fear not, the Germans are onside, along with the criminals, the homeless, the street-side buskers and an army of people whose lives will never get a five-star rating on a mainstream reputation scoring system. We will forge alliances with purveyors of non-bank alternative currency systems; and yes, we will maintain the option to use our payment cards. Because what we fight for is precisely that. The option.

I have been reading a bit about "gaslighting", due to the suspision that I and my Mom may have been gaslighted my my father.
I wanted to know more about it.
And then....
And I have come to the suspicion that D. Trump is gaslighting his way through the election process. And has been doing that possibly throughout his whole "business career".

As I thought about this, I started googling... and found that I am not alone in this thought.

So, OK, lets say that D.Trump actually resigns or is removed from candidacy or ends up wearing a "I love me" jacket before November.
So who will fill the shoes?
My fear: Ted Cruz

Trump my be bugnuts, but he is nominally a businessman, and has a reputation of being... fluid. So even if voted in, there are still restraints or ways of negotiating.
Ted Cruz- no negotiation possible. He will set anything and everything to realizing his radical, christianized version of Sharia through the government.
He is a known "Dominionist" - and that alone is horrifying.

Excerpts:
Ted Cruz shares many of Trump’s character traits – including a massive narcissistic ego, a penchant for crowd-pleasing populist rhetoric and an aggressive, attack-dog style against opponents.

Excerpts:
Ted Cruz shares many of Trump’s character traits – including a massive narcissistic ego, a penchant for crowd-pleasing populist rhetoric and an aggressive, attack-dog style against opponents.
Where they differ, crucially, is that Cruz is deadly serious and very deliberate about every word he says, and has spent years plotting and scheming to radically change America forever.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cruz is not, as many believe Trump to be, just pandering to the hard-line Conservative right in America, he IS the hard-line Conservative right in America; a brutally ideological zealot who wants to drag his country kicking and screaming back to the very dark days of bigoted fear and hatred of government.
Consider some of his basic, very entrenched beliefs:
He’s opposed to any kind of same-sex marriage or civil union, believing marriage should be between ‘one man and one woman’. Such is his utter intolerance of all things homosexual, he even attacked the mayor of Dallas for marching in a gay pride parade.
He resolutely supports the death penalty.
He voted against the Violence Against Women Act.
He’s anti all abortion, including for pregnancies caused by rape and incest.
He wants to slash funding to Planned Parenthood.
He repeatedly claims that more guns mean less crime, despite all statistical evidence to the contrary. In fact, he's so gun-mad, even by Republican standards, that he makes breakfast for his family by wrapping pieces of bacon around a machine gun.
He denies the very existence of man-made climate change.
He’s so driven by his Christian religious beliefs that he opposes any notion of separating Church and State. ‘Any president,’ he said, ‘who doesn’t begin every day on his knees isn’t fit to be Commander-in-Chief.’
He claims Christians can’t be terrorists and have committed no such acts of terror for hundreds of years.
He wants police to ‘patrol and secure Muslim neighbourhoods inside America’ – an act described as ‘terrifying’ by U.S. Muslims.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Trump wouldn’t be nearly as dangerous as people fear.
Cruz would be considerably more dangerous than people realize.

So, if you see a thumb-drive on the street,
1) take it along so no one else will,
2) do NOT plug it inot your computer unless you are a security specialist and have a PC specifically to check something like this out.

A USB Hack Can Occur Even Without a Flash Drive

Maybe you are the person who would walk right past that flash drive in the parking lot. But the risk isn’t just with these drives. Hackers can also embed the USB drive into components that need to be plugged in anyway: the end of a keyboard plug, for instance, can be the perfect portal to take down an entire sensitive network. There have already been examples of hackers and researchers hosting malware packages inside the firmware of a device like a mouse. Firmware is code that lives in the read-only embedded memory of a device and tells the hardware how to work. It’s meant to only run inside the device, but it’s possible to change this code for malicious purposes. Oh, and it’s not possible for antivirus programs to scan this type of code.___So, if you see a thumb-drive on the street,
1) take it along so no one else will,
2) do NOT plug it inot your computer unless you are a security specialist and have a PC specifically to check something like this out.

People who have the point of view that Bernie Sanders sold out: What would your expectation be- what "should" he have done?
And note: he endorsed Hillary, he did not concede.
He is pragmatic. He is working for change. And he is working in a certain framework. He tried for the framework "POTUS", but for whatever reasons (not going into that!) he didn't get that framework. So, he changes the framework.... not the goals.
Do you see him having changed goals? (Citations please)

Quote:
His speech was a clear attempt at convincing his supporters to stick with him for the long haul, whatever happens next. “Election days come and go,” Sanders said. “But political and social revolutions that attempt to transform our society never end.”

Who wants a real election? Or better, who does not?

7 Minutes To Steal The Vote: Our Democracy “Astonishingly Vulnerable To Hackers” http://rgn.bz/h7Pa

by Claire Bernish

A professor from Princeton University and a graduate student just proved electronic voting machines in the U.S. remain astonishingly vulnerable to hackers — and they did it in under eight minutes.

In fact, Professor Andrew Appel and grad student Alex Halderman took just seven minutes to break into the authentic Sequoia AVC Advantage electronic voting machine Appel purchased for $82 online — one of the oldest models, but still in use Louisiana, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia, Politico reported.

After Halderman picked the hulking, 250-pound machine’s lock in seven seconds flat, Appel wrested its four ROM chips from a circuit board — an easy feat, considering the chips weren’t soldered in place.

Once freed, Appel could facilely replace the ROM chips with his own version “of modified firmware that could throw off the machine’s results, subtly altering the tally of votes, never to betray a hint to the voter,” Politico’s Ben Wofford explained.

Appel and a team of other so-called cyber-academics have hacked into various models of electronic voting machines in order to prove to the public the equipment is ridiculously bereft of security. Together with Ed Felten, Appel and a group of Princeton students “relentlessly hacked one voting machine after another … reprogramming one popular machine to play Pac-Man; infecting popular models with self-duplicating malware; [and] discovering keys to voting machine locks that could be ordered on eBay.”

Their efforts have gone largely ignored for 15 years.

And people seriously want him to lead a country?
Quote D. Trump:

On March 16, Trump was asked about which foreign-policy consultants he was speaking to. “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain,” he said, apparently seriously. “I know what I’m doing, and I listen to a lot of people, I talk to a lot of people, and at the appropriate time, I’ll tell you who the people are. But my primary consultant is myself, and I have a good instinct for this stuff.”

Or we say "I don't believe statistics I haven't massaged myself"?
Or just don't believe?
Or consider the theory that the information is / will be suppressed?

All in all- nothing?

Alternatively, does anyone know what could be done with this info? Could someone take the time to sue? Would it have to be done state by state?

I would sit down and laugh till I threw up if a) DTrump decises to back out of the race and b) Sanders was instated as the voted candidate.
2 Parties, 2 candidates, and then new candidates for BOTH parties...... a new ballgame.

Anyone else see a business opportunity here?
There seems to be a possibility of an accompanying industry: penetration test contractors or companies. Offering services to test and find vulnerabilities in your IoT offering. Possibly with additional "fix-it" service.

Interesting is that my department (IT in a large logistics company with a high profile) has a robust IT-Security department. Because we deal with customer data and money, it would be a worst case scenario if data got hacked.

It is not "our favorite foods". Food supply in general is what we are talking about.  Headline fail.
Not only is the mere subject horrifying, the attitude expressed in the last two paragraphs by "Achim Steiner, executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)" translates to me as "Oh, well, I guess we do actually have to realize that we might have to take a bit care of the environment that we seem to be embedded in."

Thinking about writing a book?
Experiences in self publishing.

QUOTE: I’ve sold 2m copies of my five novels, but I am still not considered a ‘serious’ author because I self-publish.

QUOTE: Last week I looked at the complex set of spreadsheets I use to track my ebook sales and gave a whoop of delight: I had just sold my two-millionth book, something I would never in my wildest dreams have considered possible just over four years ago, particularly as the vast majority of those sales were achieved through self-publishing. Initially my most ambitious target had been to sell a thousand copies.___Thinking about writing a book?

Vote. Just... vote. I know what and who I would rather vote for, you probably do too. I do hope you will vote the way I would, and I would discuss "things" if you are of different opinion.

If you don't vote, you make other peoples vote count more. And then, live with what "they" voted for.

"Follow the money"
I am .... amazed. I have always known Ben & Jerry have been active, but I didn't really pay attention. There is so much to pay attention too, and I only have so many attention points to spend.....
I will be paying more attention to Ben & Jerry and posting their articles. They are thought provoking, relevant, not too long and not too overwhelming.
Unless you think about the material a little more deeply.......
Excellently geared to raise awareness and with solid information.

As +dPHender son says, a cool site to look at and compare the stances of the various candidates.
Get informed.

Seriously, I didn't know about this site.
http://presidential-candidates.insidegov.com

What with all the muckraking going on this year, I haven't seen much of anything that actually covers what the real issues are for any candidate. Seems like most of 'em are more concerned with what's wrong with the other guy.

So here's a cool site that covered all the candidates. You can compare any two, or several, or just look at one at a time. Very helpful.___As +dPHender son says, a cool site to look at and compare the stances of the various candidates.

Send commissions! His "zombifying" is awesome, and that is not all he does. 

I've been battling some insomnia lately, so ive made a bunch of art cards to paint on so at least I'm doing something. I'm open to $10 commissions if you want to get me to draw something for you ... and if you can't afford anything I'm also open to ideas.
For those wanting a $10 commission, it's payable via paypal.me/byronrempel___Raising bandwidth.

Yep- that is the point. Everyone who openly carries needs a "bubble" above their head indication if they are a "good guy" or "bad guy". Possible in games and VR.

quote: “But it’s increasingly challenging when people have AR-15s slung over and shootings occur in a crowd and they begin running, and we don’t know — or we don’t know if they’re the shooter or not, or they begin, it’s been the presumption that a good guy with a gun is the best way to resolve some of these things,” he continued. “Well, we don’t know who the good guy is versus who the bad guy is if everybody starts shooting, and we’ve expressed that concern as well.”___Yep- that is the point.

Oh my goodness! The professors letter is a delight!!
Her language facility is laser sharp.
Not only a rebuttal to the criticisms uttered, but a clear and concise explanation of #blacklivesmatter.
The ideas, ideals and information encompassed in her writing- I think it is awesome.

I doff my hat in awe.
