Cyber Security / Facial Recognition Scanning in Schools Has Arrived
« Last post by azozeo on October 17, 2018, 05:04:37 PM »

By Chloe Anagnos

RealNetworks, a leader in digital media software known for introducing streaming technology about two decades ago, is in the news for offering free facial recognition technology to the more than 100,000 K-12 schools across the United States.

The technology is advertised as a state-of-the-art solution to safety concerns, especially after the latest school shootings, but some privacy advocates are concerned the technology could eventually be abused.

Currently, the system known as SAFR is in use in at least one Seattle, Washington, school, the private elementary-level University Child Development School. So far, 300 parents have added their faces to the database. Children, however, are not scanned, as SAFR refuses to collect data on children.

Anybody who puts ketchup on a hotdog deserves to choke.

Just kidding. My wife tells a very scary story of almost choking to death on a hotdog when she was a little kid, and being saved by a savvy uncle.

Uncle Oscar, the dentist...LOL. No Heimlich in 1958. Just a guy willing to reach down her throat and pluck it out with his fingers, which she remembers very clearly.

The only acceptable toppings for hot dogs are mustard, pickle relish, red onions, sauerkraut & chili.

RE

IN WV, they served them with hot go chili mustard and cole slaw, and that was news to me. Wonderful.

And then there are chicago style, which as hot dogs go are a different beast altogether. This is the shit, right here. Yellow mustard, chopped white onions,  sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices, pickled sport peppers and a dash of celery salt.


I spent my teens and early twenties hanging in all the cases croutes in Montreal. A good steamie with a real poutine is still heavenly to me. Always at Decarie Hotdog and The pool room...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montreal_hot_dog

I'm bi on hotdogs.

I can go chili, cheese and onions, or I can got the other way and go Chicago style. I like 'em both a lot, (and I make sure to chew slowly and not eat them while breathing heavily).

In Austin, there were several excellent hot dog places a few years ago, but they seem to have fallen out of favor as everyone has gone paleo or vegan or gluten free, or some other version of healthy food. I hate that.

When in Chicago, a trip to Portillo's is good. Or Max's, which is next door to the Art Institute. My kid took me there, and they're excellent.

Next time you are in NY Shity visiting your daughter the scholar, make sure you pick up a Sabrett Hot Dog with Red Onions from a street vendor.  A culinary experience not to be missed!

I had a client 2 years ago who offered to pay in bitcoin for a deck. Interestingbut I didn't take him up on it. Decks are over 60 percent material so no advantage to make things disappear.

(I secretly hope your source for candles starts to demand payment in bitcoin, btw.....it could happen. LOL.)

I have laid in a supply of parafin & beeswax that will last until the Year 2025, and that's not including supplementing it with bacon & chicken fat, vegetable oil and motor oil. :P I can get a good clean burning candle🕯️ with about 1/3 of the commercial ingredients and then throw in what I have around.  The main issue for me are the wicks, they make a big difference in how your candle🕯️ burns.  I have a good supply of commercial wicks, maybe 2 years worth, but I am experimenting now with making my own wicks out of plain kite string.  If I can get them to work well,  I will have candles🕯️ burning 24/7/365 until I am pushing up daisies.  ;D  Much better investment here than bitcoin.  Bitcoins don't light up the room or keep it warm.  This is ALASKA.  There is great value in staying warm and having some light in the winter. ☃️

The Man The CIA Wants You To Forget

    The Facts:

    Former LAPD Narcotics Detective and whistleblower Michael Ruppert spent years speaking out against the CIA for allegedly running drugs throughout the USA. He was found dead in 2014 by an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.
    Reflect On:

    Why do we continue to give credibility to agencies like the CIA who have been caught abusing their power time and time again? Who's watching the watchers? What can we do to better protect whistleblowers when they come forward?
