Barefoot Bandit – once again a topic of discussion

Since yesterday was the anniversary of the Barefoot Bandit’s capture, I felt a followup may be in order. In July of 2016 he was released from prison. He will not be able to crowd fund his flight school until he is done paying restitution to his victims. I suspect that… Continue reading

Sextortion – are you aware of it?

As so many are flocking to cell phones and the ages of the users are getting younger, there is a topic that parents need to be aware of. Sextortion is a form of sexual exploitation that employs non-physical forms of coercion to extort sexual favors from the victim. Sextortion refers… Continue reading

Artificial Intelligence and Sex

A couple of times a day as part of my job, I flip through my Twitter feed looking for the emergence of cyber security threats. Sometimes, some of the entertainment/technology feeds bring some fun topics. It is expected that very soon, 2025 I think, we will be faced with a… Continue reading

Ferguson, yes I have views too

So the world has been watching to see where this went. Before I begin, I was not there, nor was I in the grand jury, so I know only what the public knows. I am in a different camp than Wil Wheaton, and others. I am probably in the minority… Continue reading

One school shooting you WON’T see on the national stage or in the media.

The best way to deal with a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun. http://bearingarms.com/good-guy-with-a-gun-armed-school-officer-stopped-arapahoe/   So why won’t the media give praise to this officer, when they are more than willing to condemn gun owners for one persons actions when it isn’t stopped… Continue reading

Why must someone be prosecuted?

We see too much gun violence thanks to the media’s drive for these stories… They make good ratings, what will they do when people stop getting shot? Oh wait, people will always be shot or killed in some fashion since people are unable to respect the rights of others. Before… Continue reading

Please, back up your files.

I try to stay away from the chicken little stuff, but this is far to important and impressive to not discuss. Many of you know that my day job is mid to higher end tech work. This post is a direct result of that work. If you work with files… Continue reading

The Next Chapter in the Stubinville case

Unbelievable… I am shocked (even though I guess I should have expected this kind of protectionism from the athletics community) that the West Virginia U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld is going to teach athletes to hide their rapes by not posting the evidence online. God forbid that you teach these kids… Continue reading

Dog the Bounty Hunter, the latest threat against Snowden

Dog the Bounty Hunter has sworn to bring Snowden back to American, though what ever illegal means he can find. http://www.chronicle.su/news/dog-the-bounty-hunter-to-pursue-snowden-bounty/ And just who has offered a billion dollar reward for his return? The government isn’t allowed to hire mercenaries or brake international law in pursuit of the accused, so… Continue reading

Zimmerman – Innocent or not guilty

Former Los Angeles County prosecutor Loni Coombs emphasized that jurors did not find Zimmerman innocent; rather, they found him not guilty. There’s a difference, she told CNN’s Don Lemon. “They’re not saying he’s innocent, they’re just saying they couldn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt, and therefore the law gave them… Continue reading
