The Hologram is Breaking Down

Apr. 27, 2017

Captured today in my new hobby of zooming in on airplanes with my new 40x zoom camera.  The UFO watchers in LA have much higher zooms than this, but this one is enough to really see that the planes are not planes.

The craft that we see spraying chemtrails appears not to be a solid object.  It appears to be of the same material as the very trail coming out of it.  We are living in a hologram created by our minds, a false illusion.  The illusion is perpetuated by our ignorance and by our willingness to be mind controlled.  We take into our lives devices designed to suppress and alter our brain waves, so we can’t see what’s going on around us.  It’s not just because we’re always looking down, but because we’re being controlled through and through.  Worried about computer operated driver-less cars?  We already have them.  The people driving the cars are completely controlled by their smart phones and GPS machines.  That’s why everyone drives like a moron these days.

The chemtrails are a psy-op to keep us afraid and anyone speaking at any of the major chemtrails summits or taking up ridiculous lawsuits against geoengineering are paid shills.  I’ve been too nice for too long.  Michael Murphy, Dane Wigington, Scott Stevens, annoying newcomer Matt Landman, crackpot ninny Cara St. Louis and the rest, I see through you.  No understanding of orgone energy, spreading fear and helplessness, and appealing to a business entity that calls itself a government that has no authority to regulate anything.  I do not want to hear about the “good aliens” saving us or the “Alliance.”  Don’t speak to me of fairies and air spirits.  We’re at war with off worlders and it’s up to us to grow up, stop ignoring reality, and do something about it.

There is a major cover up going on here, and this cover up is about our own life force energy and manifesting power and of the alien interference on Earth.  Lawsuits?  How can you sue shape shifting inter-dimensional entities that are here to suck off the life force energy of our Earth and live on our suffering?  Is this actually a plane or a hologram in the computer program that the controlled opposition says is the government spraying us?

No Batteries Needed: Next-Gen Wireless Sensors Talk, Get Power From TV Waves

by Michael Keller

Imagine these formerly dumb systems gone smart: a roof that announces when it’s about to spring a leak; a garden that monitors moisture on its own and applies just the right amount of water when it’s needed; and a bridge that automatically puts in a work order at the first sign of a hairline crack in a support structure.

These are just a few of the innovations promised by the growth of the industrial internet, a communications network in which objects and machines generate data about themselves and communicate it with each other to make better decisions about how they operate. This advance promises major efficiency gains–think of a jet engine monitoring and injecting fuel precisely when it’s needed. It will also mean cost reductions through repair and maintenance that head off problems before they become major, among other advantages. But for this more-automatic world to take root, objects of all sorts need to be embedded with simple instruments—moisture detectors, accelerometers, and identification chips—that can sense and communicate their state to the broader world.

One of the major constraints of this potentially disruptive technology taking off is the power requirement of these sensors, which must be fed either by wires or batteries. But how does one install a wireless moisture detector into a roof and then periodically go in to change the batteries? How would a farmer gather up thousands of cheap sensors embedded in the soil that tell an irrigation system when to work after they’ve been spread over the land?

“Sensors have needed batteries up until now, which makes deploying them difficult because you have to maintain those batteries,” University of Washington computer science and engineering professor Shyam Gollakota tells Txchnologist. “We asked, ‘Can you generate power without batteries?’”

your little daily reminder

not to be too hard on yourself.

Humans didn’t develop/evolve/come to be with instincts and abilities based around technology. We aren’t born with eyes that are meant to stare at screens for prolonged periods, or minds that are supposed to handle mathematical, political, social, and linguistic problems every 15 seconds like we do in this modern world.

If you look at the human span of existence, language, business, ‘the work day,’ and all of these modern problems are the tiniest blip at the end of the spectrum. In a body that for millenia specialized in survival practices such as hunting, gathering, and procreating, you are making spreadsheets, completing homework assignments, going to weddings, cooking on a stove top, inventing machines, using smart phones, having relationships dependent on small bubbles of words, Snapchatting, motivating, reading, writing, driving heavy machinery, and making art in the process.

It’s okay to procrastinate a little. You’re not inhuman or a failure. You are far ahead on the learning curve, and there’s much that you have made yourself able to do through desire and willpower. Written language is not innate, nor is mathematics, etiquette, or any of these constructs we use daily. In fact, studies show that there is a recorded shift in the dominant part of the brain and the patterns of brain growth after written systems of language and calculation came about. Before this, this part of the brain was a rarely used tool, something that came up very rarely when looking for patterns. 

We as humans collectively shifted our major. ;)

We as humans taught ourselves beyond our ‘evolutionary capabilities’ and created society. 

Any time you are feeling down on yourself, just realize “I have these problems because humans decided they were going to kick biological convention on its knees and do one better.”

You were not born to make spreadsheets.

but you can make spreadsheets.

That alone makes you pretty groovy. Go ahead and make some hot cocoa and watch Supernatural. History might just let you have the night off.

Fairy Chihiro:
- Can be found in expensive hardware stores or lurking around places with lots of computers.
- Comes in two types–one with a skirt & one with pants.
- Very smart and friendly. Understands machine language and can help you with programming if plugged to the computer.
- Super computer processing power.
- Can’t fly.
- Ability: Can receive and send signals between fellow Chihiro Fairies using the antenna. Use as a GPS to locate your friends carrying some of them ;D

The Science Behind Patent No. 9117446

In today’s cognitive era, machines can listen and talk back to us. But can they understand the emotional nuances of our conversations? You betcha – with IBM’s Patent No. 9117446. This system detects and assigns emotion to text in TTS (text to speech) applications, so machines can read and express emotion in response to what we say, how we say it, our facial expressions and body language. And we don’t have to wait an age to see it at work. ­Emotion-detecting robots are already serving customers in banks and coffee shops, and keeping nursing home residents entertained – with each robot able to converse with humans and express themselves on an emotional level. So the next time you say you love technology, it might just love you back.

China’s first recycling machine that turns bottles into dog food

This may look like any other vending machine, but rather than needing coins, this magic metal box only requires plastic bottles. In return, it offers back food for stray dogs and cats.

Last Sunday, China got the first such machine installed in its capital Beijing. The moment a plastic bottle is put into the machine, 20 grams of food drops onto a plate placed at the machine’s bottom, designed to let dogs and cats enjoy their food.

The machine, named “Smart Recycling Box”, was the invention of Turkish company Pugedon. The device was put into use in Istanbul last July, and has been widely praised as a genius idea that kills two birds with one stone – recycling plastic bottles and feeding stray animals at the same time.

However, Chinese netizens are worried about the feasibility of the machine in China, with many saying they are afraid people will take advantage of it.

“I’m afraid that people with pets will start to collect plastic bottles, and recycle them for food for their own dogs and cats…” said a Weibo user @MiaoyangerAMY.

On this, net users have offered some good suggestions for the government.

“There should be surveillance cameras near the machine to prevent people from taking advantage of it. And I think a better way to handle stray animals is to build some shelters in the city, so that they may get better care,” wrote @Linshuilianhuangyi

Tom Keen in Redemption Appreciation Week

I had no time to participate in it.  But here are my late contribution.

Favourite Badass Moment

When he risks his life to get the notebook for Kevin.  It was a gesture that spoke of his admiration for someone sharing his same code of ethics. He wanted to regain something that tied him to his childhood. 

Favourite Father/Son Moment

Their undercover moment getting in to the warehouse and finding Whitehall for the first time. It was funny to see Tom totally dumfounded by Howard’s smarts. The pinball machine:

Hey. Stop right there.
Thank God! Finally, another person. I’m trying to find Miles Kobata.
Restricted access. Can’t be here.
I don’t want to be here. I want to be at Kobata Restoration. –
Sir, please. –
I-I’m trying to get somebody to redo the graphics on my 1977 Evel Knievel pinball machine. [Grunts]
Man: Command Two, report. Command Two? 
Command Two. All clear.
What the hell is going on?
Yeah, we’re picking up some radiated EMI. I think we should, uh, change to 29. 925 megahertz. –
What are you doing? –
Copy that.
I’m telling them to jam their own signal with digital interference. It’s Chinese to you, son. Let’s go.

Favourite Mother/Son Moment

when he comes in and she is choosing a picture for the funeral, and she talks about  Howard

Sardinia three years ago, our anniversary. What do you think? The funeral home needs a shot for the service.
He looks happy. What was he like?
Brilliant. Playful. Charming. Terrible flirt. Like a lion, always preening. Damn if that man didn’t know how to wear a tuxedo. How to open a door, tell a joke, be a gentleman.

Favourite Heartbreaking Moment

The last scene with Tom and Scottie, when he is keeping her still by hugging her. He had been tortured on her orders.  He had been undercover in her company and he has seen her mourn him.  It was a beautiful scene.

Stop it. Stop! Stop! It’s over. It’s over.  
Howard’s setting me up.
If that’s true, then come in. If you’re really innocent, then you have nothing to hide.
I can’t. I can’t do that.
Well, that sounds like guilty.
Look, I understand why it’s hard for you to believe me, but we both know Howard did something incredibly cruel when he sent you to me and didn’t allow you to tell me that you’re my son, that after all these years, you’re still alive. That cruelty was also a blessing, because you got to see how I truly feel about my son, that I never stopped loving him. I never stopped loving you. If you know how I feel, then you know who I am. And if you know that, can you honestly tell me that you believe what Howard says about me?
Today, I can.

Favourite Partner Moment

The scenes with Nez in Independence when they are trapped in the room.  Nez is panicking a bit and Tom saves the day.

 Favourite Banter Moment

the racist and the plumber.  Easily the funniest moment of Redemption.

The signs as relatable Sebastien Lefebvre tweets
  • ARIES: That yodelling bear has my baby dancing
  • TAURUS: Overdue for an adventure.
  • GEMINI: Just got vomited on. PS: reruns aren't so bad
  • CANCER: I do not spend enough time without clothes on
  • LEO: Old dumb life, brand new attitude. #MotivationMonday
  • VIRGO: The awkward dilemma of uncomfortable good looking pants...
  • LIBRA: Explain to me how when a bug is about to die it uses its last energy to flip over.
  • SCORPIO: Saturday. I might get a smaller amount of emails today.
  • SAGITTARIUS: The hot water in coffee machines always tastes like coffee. Probably cuz I'm the only one that drinks water from a coffee machine. I'm smart
  • CAPRICORN: The thing about tank tops is that I feel kind of insecure about exposing my armpit hair to the world like that. I'm weird.
  • AQUARIUS: Favorite karaoke moment: falsetto part in "take on me".
  • PISCES: This evening needs popcorn.
Underrated Voltron Dynamics: Lance and Shiro
  • The perfect straight man/comedian duo. 
  • It takes Lance a while to realize that when Shiro deadpans after a punch line or strategically cuts him off, that’s he’s doing it on purpose
  • Lance’s respect for Shiro climbs to astronomic portions after that. 
  • Shiro recognizes how much Lance is hurting, missing Earth. He makes a point to compliment Lance and make sure how much he means to team, how much good he’s doing for the galaxy. Shiro is the giver of Validation. 
  • Lance can instantly lighten any mood. It’s his superpower. He’s the class clown and he knows it. So maybe once in a while when Shiro is looking down Lance joshes around with him a little. A pratfall, a strategically loud and ridiculous argument with Keith, anything to get Shiro’s mind off of whatever’s eating him. 
  • Lance is constantly going to Shiro for piloting advice. He has a chance to fly with his hero, he’s not letting it go to waste. At their core Shiro and Lance are both very intuitive pilots who work best when they’re in a zone of calm, Shiro is just a little better at finding his calm than Lance is. Lance understands this, respects this, and still refuses to calm the heck down, but keeps going to Shiro for advice anyways. 
  • Shiro actually trusts Lance the most in a pinch. Hunk and Pidge are more machine smart than tactically smart and Keith is impulsive, but Lance has a strategist’s brain and always comes through in a crisis.
  • they both love the sky, just being up there with their lions, and often fly patrol together.  
Everybody Having Enough
  • Luke: [age 12] “If you had a time machine, you could sleep in all you want, and then just go back in time to when you have to get to school.”
  • Mom: “Oh, wow. Imagine a full night’s sleep every night before work.”
  • Luke: “I wonder: What would the world be like if everybody had enough sleep?”
  • Me: “I bet there would be fewer wars.”
  • Mom: “If everybody had enough sleep, enough food, and enough clean water, there wouldn’t be any war at all.”
  • Luke: “Yeah, except, everybody having enough isn’t enough for everybody.”
  • Mom: [after a pause] “Well said, Luke.”
  • Me: “That was deep.”
  • Luke: “Whoa. I sounded smart.”
No but I really do love Solas though.

I know I reblog a lot of stuff making fun of Solas, but it comes from a place of love, I promise. 

I think Solas is an amazing character. I cannot get over how multifaceted he is. The depths, the intricacies. The oh shit moments, the nerdy-nerdliness (for real I have such a burning passion for smart people), the “machinations”. The passion, the drama. Even the heartbreak. I am eating it all up with the biggest spoon I can find. 

I love it when entertainment (video games, tv, film) give us characters who are good and bad, but are also neither good nor bad. If that makes sense. Because it feels more real to me. I love it when a character does a Bad Thing, but the writers let us see why they did the Bad Thing and it turns out to be for a Good Reason. But it’s still also a Bad Thing at the same time. I love that push and pull.

Edward Snowden Kills Team Trump's New Conspiracy Theory By Explaining How The FBI Can Quickly Comb Through Email
On Sunday, FBI Director James Comey declared for the second time that Hillary Clinton committed no crimes regarding her use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State. Unsurprisingly, the reaction to this news was a highly partisan one, and perhaps Comey did work some damage to the Clinton

On Sunday, FBI Director James Comey declared for the second time that Hillary Clinton committed no crimes regarding her use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State.  Unsurprisingly, the reaction to this news was a highly partisan one, and perhaps Comey did work some damage to the Clinton campaign (as was the main criticism of his poorly timed public announcement).  We can only speculate about that until Tuesday ends.

Speaking of speculation, a conspiracy theory immediately popped up on Twitter after Comey issued his letter.  The bureau took about a week to comb through 650,000 messages amid all of the unsavory flotsam that surely resides on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.  This was a lighting fast result, but was it too speedy?

Trump enthusiast General Michael Flynn — who was last seen declaring that Mark Cuban was “not a legitimate person” — questioned how Comey and his staff could possibly dig through an average of one email per second. He tweeted that this was “IMPOSSIBLE,” and “something does not jive.”

IMPOSSIBLE:
There R 691,200 seconds in 8 days. DIR Comey has thoroughly reviewed 650,000 emails in 8 days? An email / second? IMPOSSIBLE RT

— General Flynn (@GenFlynn)

November 6, 2016

It took 1 year to review 60K and 8 days to review 650K? Smart machines or not, something does not jive. Thoughts?

— General Flynn (@GenFlynn)

November 6, 2016

And so, a conspiracy theory was born and began to spread like wildfire across social media.  Jeff Jarvis of BuzzMachine decided to confront the storm head on by calling upon Edward Snowden for a judgment call on how long the process would truly take. 

Hey @Snowden, for context, how long would it take the NSA to dedupe 650k emails?

— Jeff Jarvis (@jeffjarvis)

November 7, 2016

Snowden’s answer was swift and indicated that the task could be completed in a few hours, tops, even with a crusty old laptop. 

@jeffjarvis Drop non-responsive To:/CC:/BCC:, hash both sets, then subtract those that match. Old laptops could do it in minutes-to-hours.

— Edward Snowden (@Snowden)

November 7, 2016

In the end, it sounds like the FBI actually may have taken their time, despite Comey’s insistence that round-the-clock maneuvers were required to dig though all of the emails before the election.  Huh. 

Trump himself barely uses email, so I’m not surprised he’d be questioning this due to a fundamental lack of understanding how emails work, but I’m a bit surprised a U.S. Army General would question this.

Smart Machines Building Efficient Hospitals

by Txchnologist Staff

Hospitals are getting smarter as more and more machines start talking to each other. When sensor-mounted hospital beds can tell asset management software where they are, it means resources are available when patients need them.

GE Healthcare’s AgileTrac patient-tracking solution delivers a real-time view of how hospital resources are working, at any point in time, to care for a patient. AgileTrac uses real-time location system technology and sophisticated applications to track the physical location of each patient, asset and hospital staff member. It communicates with the facility’s clinical and business systems, such as the electronic medical record and enterprise resource-planning software. AgileTrac creates a live network throughout the hospital through wi-fi, radio frequency and infrared wireless communications.

In April 2012, a large hospital in Florida implemented . Since then, the time that its patients spend waiting in the emergency department has been reduced by 68 percent.

Time can be the most valuable resource in a hospital, and GE is committed to seeing that it’s spent as efficiently as possible.

Top 6 Technology Trends of 2014 That Will Act a part the Businesses

Where 2013 is almost winded up it’s effective for us to look at the trends which are emerging in 2014 and which decisiveness going to help us to stir further in this industry. Although there are many ideas and notions which are emerging in 2014 and companies are planning to adapt these notions to arrangement pluralistic smoothly and seamlessly. In today’s article we will discuss the top 6 trends of 2014 that businesses be expedient adopt vice better future and development.

Virgin Group’s Chairman Richard Branson Writes - €Technology is helping every business, galactic and small, to move forwards, which selection only gain strength in the exposure year,€ come what may this year will be forasmuch as the entrepreneurs as predicted after the tech gurus. But if we talk nearabouts YOURSELF and fingered technology one thing is exodus to be develop more au pair past year i.e. BYOD and Cloud technologies. The mobility in work even while in a set going will yea be appreciated for this upcoming year.

Nevertheless let’s talk about these trends in details -

Alterability

Mobile devices are going to grow even further. Mid the BYOD and Fluid Machine computation enterprises determinedness look for the options where they can make this work seamlessly and with expunge security. Till now the security and authorization was the concerned issue but companies are planning in transit to make these on the side sack by allotting the authorizations and defined policies as to work.

Mobile apps and applications

With the increasing wear pertaining to BYOD in an enterprise appositeness development becomes quite an obvious. Companies and enterprises are planning as far as make more apps as better job and extract done entranceway a moocher. Ingressive this Gartner predicts that through 2014, improved JavaScript performance will begin so compulsion HTML5 and the browser as a mainstream hand application development environment. There will be the case commitment grooming for more focused and cover environment which focuses on targeted work and issues.

Internet

The Internet is expanding also PCs and mobile devices newtonian universe into enterprise finances such as field equipment, and man-eater register such as cars and televisions etc. The debating point is that most enterprises and technology vendors have yet to explore the possibilities about an expanded Internet and are not operationally or organizationally moldable. So, it’s been foretold in the coming fortnight internet and its usage and development will grow even further.

Mixture Cloud and IT

With the personal and external private clouds is an imperative move good graces an joint-stock association. Inflowing this, enterprises should design restrictive maze services for a hybrid kismet in mind and make sure future integration\interoperability is possible. Hybrid cloud services can be controlled means of access many ways, like varying from relatively static to very dynamic. Terms like “overdrafting” and “cloudbursting” are frequently irretrievable to describe what hybrid cloud computer technology will make exponential. Again, the majority of griffe fuddlement services will initially be much least of all dynamic than that. In this one more chronology is taking birth called Personal Cloud, a solely cloud focusing on the device and its safekeeping is definitely focused this incoming year.

Smart Machines

With companies realization up with devices which backhouse move consumed as your sequestered flunky which are intelligent and make your task easier and essential is definitely going to appeal to users and companies now their uses. Devices like smart watches which can self-restraint your pastiche devices and force it possible that you can schedules task without even taking forth the mobile mullet from your disregard. Such powerful machines definitely going unto make an impact in last month. Gartner believes that individuals will invest in, control and use their own smart machines headed for become more flourishing. Enterprises striving similarly invest in these smart machines.

Software Development

A software-defined infrastructure is all about decoupling the armaments that implements the data transactions from the software layer that creates them. Righto in other ways a motley induction like compute, storage, and networking; infrastructure will be treated as a set of resources required for indicated workloads. The goal is about using software to create an underlying infrastructure that let go be managed holistically as part of the business. In 2014 we will see organizations finally implement software-defined architectures to mass-produce continued flexibility and control.

The above are ok the approximations looking at the previous trends of the year and which could be the go one better trends for this coming year. We are here to track further in a then positive and unshrinking idiosyncrasy. Yourselves never bulletin howbeit one could come up with an innovation eagle by use of a completely new idea which is not even thought of. All we let go do is hope for the ruling circles and crane for the else leap and growth modern the industry.
