In the beginning there was the Browser, and it was good. The Browser allowed a small group of people to share information one with another, to chat, to advance their goals in research and communication. And the World saw that it was good too, and the World jumped on the bandwagon. The rest, as they [...]
It’s a sad day for so-called democracy when it is necessary to sign a bill protecting schoolchildren from religious bigotry, but that is essentially what happened in Texas earlier today when Governor Rick Perry signed a new bill into law. The law protects people from prosecution for saying Merry Christmas at Christmas time in public [...]
I mentioned yesterday that I am looking at different ways to market my publications – not just those written by me, but also those by other authors published by me – and I think I may well have found a solution. The solution, however, is considerably larger in concept that I had originally considered, but [...]
The news is out, it’s been confirmed, Yahoo! has bought out Tumblr for a cool billion dollars and change. And what is Tumblr? Well, if you read some of the comments made on various sites carrying the news it is a micro-blogging platform, exceptionally popular with its users which makes a loss. Revenue of thirteen [...]
The laws of the United States of America are so well balanced that nothing can go wrong: we and our children are protected against every eventuality, no matter what it might be. Photo Source: momsdemandaction And that is a good thing, right? Love & Kisses, Viki.
Probably the same as everyone else who wasn’t directly involved in events yesterday, I got the news about the Boston Marathon through a news service quite some time after the explosions. The German services had next to nothing – which shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise – and the US services were equally [...]
If you haven’t caught it already, there’s been at least two explosions during the Boston Marathon. The news services in Germany have as little information as the US do, but here is a spectator video – safe to watch – of one of the explosions taken from Doug on Vine: Hopefully no one will over [...]
In case you’re wondering how best to break into your local convenience store, here’s a little bit of visual guidance to help you along the way: I don’t think there’s any need for a second lesson, is there? Love & Kisses, Viki.
In my last post I highlighted the death of a woman through carelessness by a ‘trained’ sheriff’s deputy. Now, with this quick addition, I wish to take it a step further and bring a little bit of reality into the discussion. The Huffington Post has compiled statistics of all gun-related deaths since Sandy Hook. As [...]
There is nothing which pushes gun control reform more than further examples of senseless killings, no matter how many people die or the circumstances of their deaths. But, as I have said in several posts here, the most important thing about gun control is to control those who are using them, to train them properly, [...]
Somethings could be so simple or, at least, we wish that they could be. With the problems in North Korea comes the humor which is determined to make a bad situation laughable: Photo Source: ioff If only the world and its problems really were so simple to solve! Love & Kisses, Viki
Yes, they had me fooled too, which just goes to prove – also when I read all the various comments – how good satire can be when someone – or several people – really know what they are doing and cause the truth, or prejudices in peoples’ minds, to create something authentic and biting. I’m [...]
I’m sure that the Internet was full of literally thousands of April 1 jokes a couple days ago, and some would have been very hard to tell from the truth, from actual fact. For me, though, the best one has to be the man who shot a tree, and the tree shot back. Why? Because [...]
… just what it is about our education system that has failed us. But the answer is often closer than you can imagine. Love & Kisses, Viki
So, the Senate has finally passed or approved (since it is non-binding) a Democrat budget for the first time in four years. Finally. But this is only the beginning of what will be a continual fight, one party against the other, to gain control regardless of whether it is good or bad for the country. [...]
