The decision has been made for Ratburger TV to stand in solidarity with C-Span, CNN, and FOX who were excluded from telecasting live the South Carolina Democratic Convention. Only MSNBC is allowed to do the live broadcast.
People often think facts matter. They do but decisions are made more from emotions than facts and we need to know this and act accordingly.
When I turned on my four year old iPhone for the first time in a few days, it nagged me that five apps had updates waiting. When I clicked on the App Store icon, what should I see on the home page but the screen at the right, featuring an app called Wattpad, informing me that “The Next Big Literary Wizard Is Gay”, and inviting me to “Check out Wattpad, the content platform elevating LGBTQ+ authors.”
Gee, I thought, or would like to think, that the “next big literary wizard” will be whoever tells the most compelling stories, not based on how they choose to occupy part of their time whilst not scribbling.... [Read More]

Today was the opening ceremony for Fuerzas Comando 19. This year, the competition will be held in Chile. Special Operators from about 19 countries from the Caribbean, the US, and Central and South America will square off to see who will be the Fuerzas Comando champion.

Since I have come to Japan I have found stationery stores to be fun. It is because Japanese are really into handwriting and have some of the best pens and pencils on the planet. I remember buying a mechanical pencil that advanced the lead in a new way. Instead of clicking the top one shook the whole pen. There is some neat stuff.
Not that I would ever need it but correcting things have gone through various stages. The first was the white liquid that dried to write over it. The second was a little correction tape cartridge to cover over the mistake. The third was a small roll of Post-it like paper to cover things and writing on the paper.

Ramadan ended on June 3rd this year. I posted with the overview the following week. There has been no abatement of murder and destruction. In fact, the pace of killing seems to be increasing.
This will not be reported in American mass media. Conservative niche media will only take notice of the most horrifying crimes. The murders of hundreds of Africans is only noted by Christian niche media. Most of the victims are Christians, of course, though plenty of Pagans are murdered by Muslims as well. Every now and then Muslims are killed in reprisals, and that is ten times as likely to get reported in western mass media as other violence.... [Read More]
