Citizens Use Their Obituaries To Beg Family Not To Support Hillary

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in big trouble.

Sinking poll numbers, an FBI investigation, serious questions about her foundation, Benghazi, and an extremely unlikable personality have chipped away at her status as the “presumptive nominee”.

Clinton has become such a polarizing figure that a trend has been developing across the country that has seen elderly voters use their obituaries to beg their families and friends not to vote for her.

From Townhall via The Washington Free Beacon:

An Arkansas man has requested in his obituary that loved ones do not vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, making him at least the third individual to do so since Clinton launched her campaign in April.

The obituary for Richard Buckman of Beebe, Ark., reads, “In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary,” mirroring text that was included in a recent obituary for a deceased New Jersey woman.

The BEEcosystem Lets You Keep Bees as Indoor Pets

Growing bees indoors has never really been an option before, but an American startup called Living Interiors is changing that with their revolutionary new product – the BEEcosystem.

The BEEcosystem is a hexagonal cedar observational hive, “small enough to be manageable in non traditional beekeeping spaces,” but also large enough to produce cut-comb honey. The viewing window on the hive allows people to see the bees at work on the hive.

That’s sort of like a fish tank for bees, but the BEEcosystem is a lot friendlier to the winged insects. It is a wall installation that can be placed indoors or outdoors, and it comes with a red light filtering cover that helps maintain the bees’ natural cycles irrespective of artificial lighting in the room. It even comes with a transfer tube setup for sliding windows, so bees can leave or enter the hive as they please. The hive is modular, which means new ones can easily be attached as the colony expands.

The BEEcosystem is incredibly user friendly too – the honey bees come pre-installed so all the end user needs to do is mount the hive on a wall using the wall bracket provided. The unit is pretty easy to maintain as well – it has a cleaning drawer that collects debris from the bottom of the hive, while keeping the bees safely away. A top feeder allows bees to be fed when certain flowers are in bloom.

St. Pete Police get new training on transgender interactions

St. Pete officer shot by suspect released from hospital (Cover)

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (WFLA) — Caitlyn Jenner may be the new face of the transgender community nationwide. In St. Petersburg real people have been dealing with real transgender issues for years.

“It’s been like a silent part of the community that’s been dealing with these issues for many years and it’s just coming to the surface now, ” said St. Petersburg Police Lieutenant Markus Hughes. Huges is the L.G.B.T. Liason officer for the department and says many in the transgender community have a deep rooted mistrust of police officers.

“They were concerned about when they are involved with law enforcement, what pronoun are they going to call me? What name will they call me? Will they call me my preferred name?” said Hughes.

Party girl gets license suspended, uses Barbie Jeep to get around campus

One resourceful coed at Texas State University recently found a novel way to get around after her driver’s license was suspended for drunk driving: In a pink Barbie Jeep.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, 20-year-old Tara Monroe, a junior majoring in industrial engineering, had her license automatically suspended after she refused a breathalyzer test while on her way home from a Waka Flocka Flame concert. She got arrested on DWI charges, her dad drove all the way to San Marcos from her hometown of Kingwood to take her car away, and the whole thing was a total buzz kill.

While some kids who are car-less due to bad judgment or simple poverty get around campus on bicycle, Monroe would not even entertain the idea. “Riding a bike around campus sucks,” she told MySanAntonio.com. “Like really sucks.” So she sprung for the less humiliating option: A motorized children’s toy.

“When we drove up to buy it [its previous owner] asked where the little one was to test drive it to which I replied, ‘I am the little one,’” she told MySA.com. YOLO!

Scores of depressed patients euthanised in Belgium

A new study claims that vague terminology in Belgium’s assisted dying guidelines is allowing scores of psychiatric patients to be euthanized.

The worrying findings, published recently in the British Medical Journal Open, are based on a sample of 100 psychiatric patients in Belgium who requested euthanasia in the period 2007-2011.

Researchers found that most of the patients participating in the study had more than one diagnosed mental illness, with depression being the most common (59 patients) followed by split-personality disorder (50 patients).

Out of the 100 patients involved in the review, 48 had their euthanasia requests granted, and 35 carried it out. Among those remaining, 6 committed suicide, one died by palliative sedation, and one by anorexia.

The researchers are not disturbed by the thought of depressed patients being euthanized, but rather say the most pressing concern is to ensure individuals are compos mentis (of a sound mind):

Is This Why Copper Is Collapsing?

Copper prices are in free-fall this morning, slammed lower by the “good-enough” jobs data.

But we suspect the real reason lies elsewhere… A bottom in commodity prices may come within the next few months, if it already hasn’t passed, Dennis Gartman said Thursday.

“I do think that the worst is absolutely behind us because all anyone ever talks about is how awful the commodity market is. I think for the first time in a long time it’s proper to be bullish commodities; they may still go down some but I have my severe doubts.”

Ping Servers from the Firefox Address Bar

Add this as a Bookmark in Firefox:
http://network-tools.com/default.asp?prog=ping&host=%s
I have its keyword as “ping” … so all I have to do is type ping google.com in the address bar.

The advantage of pinging a server using a webapp versus from your own command line is that you can see whether or not your network connection is the problem. This looks like a good alternative to sites like DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com , though a bit more geared towards networking geeks.

Physicists ‘Squeeze’ the Uncertainty Out of the Uncertainty Principle

Life in the quantum realm means never sitting still. A photon doesn’t rest (or “stop”) because it turns out that achieving zero energy and, thus, complete predictability requires a bit more effort than it does to just buzz around in a probabilistic cloud. This inherent uncertainty of a quantum system requires it to fluctuate even at what should be dead zero. This is incredibly, fundamentally weird.

It’s weird because as large-scale entities, we seem to observe rest all of the time everywhere. The unfathomably vast collections of constituent particles behind these large-scale entities might be unpredictable and constantly in motion, but we get to experience them on average, which means that all of these variations just kind of cancel out and instead we’re able to imagine zero motion.

I say “imagine” because that’s not quite it. The noise of quantum fluctuations doesn’t just disappear, so much as appear to disappear. Forces like friction and gravity easily overcome the zero-point energy of particles, but it’s still down there. Moreover, as described in a paper this week in Science, researchers at Caltech have come up with a way of observing and even controlling this quantum motion by cooling a small (but not quantum-small) device to a temperature of almost absolute zero (or as absolute zero as it gets), the point at which the only remaining forces come from quantum fluctuations.

Hikers behaving badly: Appalachian Trail partying raises ire

By ALANNA DURKIN

BAXTER STATE PARK, Maine (AP) — When Jackson Spencer set out to tackle the Appalachian Trail, he anticipated the solitude that only wilderness can bring — not a rolling, monthslong frat party.

Shelters where he thought he could catch a good night’s sleep while listening to the sounds of nature were instead filled with trash, graffiti and people who seemed more interested in partying all night, said Spencer, who finished the entire trail last month in just 99 days.

“I wanted the solitude. I wanted to experience nature,” he said. “I like to drink and to have a good time, but I didn’t want that to follow me there.”

Spencer, or “Mission” as he is known to fellow thru-hikers, confronted what officials say is an ugly side effect of the increasing traffic on the Georgia-to-Maine footpath every year: More people than ever causing problems.

At Maine’s Baxter State Park, home to the trail’s final summit on Mount Katahdin, officials say thru-hikers are flouting park rules by openly using drugs and drinking alcohol, camping where they aren’t supposed to, and trying to pass their pets off as service dogs. Hundreds of miles away, misbehaving hikers contributed to a small Pennsylvania community’s recent decision to shutter the sleeping quarters it had offered for decades in the basement of its municipal building.With last year’s release of the movie “Wild,” about a woman’s journey on the Pacific Crest Trail, and what experts call a growing interest in outdoor activities, the number of people on the Appalachian Trail has exploded. And the numbers are only expected to climb further after “A Walk in the Woods” — a movie based on the 1998 Bill Bryson book about the Appalachian Trail— hits theaters this week.

More than 830 people completed the 2,189-mile hike last year, up from just 182 in 1990, according to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, based in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. At Baxter, the number of registered long-distance hikers grew from 359 in 1991 to more than 2,000 in 2014.

The growing number of hikers is becoming a management nightmare at Baxter, where officials say they also believe the culture and attitude of the people using the footpath is changing.

Jensen Bissell, director of the park, said in a letter to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy late last year that AT hikers are “open and deliberate in their desire for freedom from all rules and regulations.” He warns that the trail may need to end somewhere besides Katahdin if something doesn’t change soon.

FBI admits using faked forensic science to put hundreds of innocent people behind bars (and have some sentenced to death)

(NaturalNews) The FBI engaged in a massive science-based conspiracy to alter and distort forensic evidence for over two decades, the agency has now publicly admitted. “The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000,” reports the Washington Post in a rare moment of truth-telling.

Astonishingly, 93% of the forensic scientists in the FBI’s hair analysis unit “overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far,” reports WashPost. To pull this off, they used “scientific jargon” to bamboozle juries, making their evidence sound convincing even though it was entirely invalid. As usual, this science-based fabrication of false evidence was offered by egotistical, self-assured FBI scientists who sounded convincing even though they were misleading the court with false testimony.
