https://nypost.com/2024/01/08/news/alaska-airlines-offers-passengers-mere-1500-for-horror-flight-as-potential-lawsuits-loom/

We saw this what happened, these people almost did die in the sky. And now the airline is only offering them $1500. I think these people must sue the airline for more money.

Now I am wondering what does this rich and powerful man know is going on. The 'Koolau Ranch' has 30 bedrooms, pools, spas, tennis courts, and conference rooms for when the apocalypse does happen.

He is spending $100 Million for that, It will produce its own energy and food with a 18 feet tall water tank. Is this man just crazy or maybe he is own to something.

Well this is 1 of my favorite games so I am very excited to play GTA 6. And then we can see a trailer for the game in this December.

It has been 10 years since they gave us GTA 5. Is there any other GTA fans excited for this new GTA 6?  https://www.pcgamer.com/gta-6-will-reportedly-be-announced-this-week-ahead-of-december-trailer/

This is just so sad for me to read about. This crazy man Robert Card goes into a bowling alley and started to shoot people. 

He is a trained firearms instructor and believed to be in the Army Reserve. I hope this man is captured very soon.

Well this is not a thing that I have known to happen before. It does sound like a sad thing for the baby. But she is being called 'reincarnation of Hindu goddess'.
If the family is happy then we can not think it bad. And the doctors say she is healthy and nothing wrong medically.

Well yesterday Apple did a announcement for the new Iphone 15 and IPhone 15 max. The prices are $999 and $1199 which is most expensive Iphone ever.
Is anyone going to buy this? I do not think I will be spending this much money on a phone if there is nothing wrong with the one I have. But I will say it does sound amazing.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12471413/Horrifying-moment-pregnant-TaKiya-Young-21-shot-dead-Ohio-cop-drove-officer-Kroger-parking-lot.html

It was such a sad tragedy that took place for the young pregnant mother of 21 years and her unborn child to die. The body camera from the police officer shows how he was asking her to get down from the vehicle and comply.

I wish she would have obeyed the police officer's orders so that did would not get killed. Instead, you can clearly see when she stepped on the gas pedal to run over the police officer and avoid being taken to jail. Truly hard to hear that a young mother and her unborn child are dead and now leave 2 children without a mother to look after them.

I try to also think about what must have been going through Ta’Kiya’s mind when she was being pointed straight with a gun. I know the police could have also handled the situation differently. Being a police officer is a job and run the risk of getting killed in the line of duty.
9  Other / Off-topic / New flesh eating bacteria on: August 20, 2023, 09:14:04 AM
https://www.nytimes.com/2023/08/18/science/flesh-eating-bacteria-beach.html

I was completely shocked to hear that there is a new flesh-eating bacteria so deadly that it already killed 3 people. Doctors recommend that if the infection is not treated quickly, it can be seriously fatal, and although it is a rare infection it still causes serve skin, muscle, fat tissue, and nerve damage.

These rare flesh-eating bacteria can enter the human body in various ways. Like having a surgical wound, puncture wound, injury, insect bites, minor cuts, burns, or abrasions. The symptoms to know if your body has caught the infection will be feeling nauseated, high fever, serious pain, dizziness, dehydration, and inflammation.

However, there are numerous ways of preventing the infection which will be something simple as cleaning your cut or wound with soap and clean water. Do not go swimming at a pool, lake, or beach if you have a skin infection or open cut or wound. By following these steps, you are much safer and prevent a deadly skin infection.
10  Other / Off-topic / Mission Impossible 7 on: July 10, 2023, 04:08:29 AM
I am very excited and looking forward to seeing the new Mission Impossible 7. I am a big fan of Tom Cruise and his role as secret agent Ethan Hunt, the movies that he does always have good action scenes.
In his last movie, Tom Cruise did this scene where he had to wear some special gloves that stick to glass windows and had to climb outside the Burj Khalifa which is the tallest building in Dubai.
From the first Mission Impossible movie, Tom Cruise has always seemed to push the bar with new stunts that keeps the audience coming back for more.
In the movie trailer, they show a scene where Tom Cruise is riding a dirt bike on the top of the mountain. As he speeds up to drop off the cliff, he let the dirt bike fell and parachuted his way to landing.
These are the kind of intense stunts and scenes I enjoy watching. Hopefully the new Mission Impossible movie will surpass what movie viewers expected.
Does any of you like this movie as much as I do?
11  Other / Off-topic / French Protestors on: July 04, 2023, 08:32:21 AM
I truly wish that the violent protesting in France can stop and peacefully resolve the matter. I know that the video that was shown on social media and in the news spark a national outrage for justice.
But to see the images of a nation being destroyed and burn to the ground is terrible and should not have come to that point.
I know that most of the people of France want justice because they are mad for seeing how a police officer shot and killed 17-year-old Nael M.
If the nation of France could simply think with a calm head and not erupt in violence then maybe we can find peace and healing for the family of 17-year-old Nael M that was shoot unnecessarily and could have avoided that tragic day.
12  Other / Off-topic / Do you have some big fears? on: May 18, 2023, 04:09:01 AM
I think my biggest fear is of spiders. I am very terrified of spiders because of their eight legs and eyes. Spiders also have fangs that allow them to spit out silk to create webs to trap different types of flying insects to kill them and eat them.

Now spiders are also able to lay their eggs on the webs they create around cold, dark, and dusty spaces. For example, behind furniture, underneath your bed or set of stairs, closets, and sometimes inside cabinets. That is why it is very important that your constantly clean your house to ensure spiders don’t invade or home.

I do not kill spiders when they are inside my house despite how scared I am of them. What I recommend is to set some traps around your house, this way you can catch them safely and take them to a pet store or try to release them to the wild.

So what about your biggest fears?
13  Other / Off-topic / How much will you run your AC? on: May 07, 2023, 06:20:44 AM
It is really expensive so do you ever run the AC on hot days? When it comes to running the AC, I was taught by the best, my dad would say it was too expensive. And it is very true because it can get pricey to run electricity, instead.
I was taught to open all windows throughout the day to ventilate the air in your home.  I also make plenty of ice to enjoy my cup of water or lemonade ice chilled. I also try to have plenty of water bottles stored in my freezer so that when I get thirsty my water will be refreshing.
I also take advantage of the free air that they have running at the mall and it’s a great way to not run your AC home and cool off. Afterward Ill head over to the gym where they also have the AC running all day and go swimming for 2 hours.
In the evening when I get home, I run my fans and the AC by the time I go sleep to stay cool at night and be able to get some rest. I make sure to program the AC to run only for 4 hours max. So take advantage of places like gyms, libraries, malls, grocery stores, and movie theaters.

19  Bitcoin / Press / [2019-07-22] Robinhood Raises $323 Million From DST, Sequoia, and Ribbit Capital on: July 23, 2019, 06:11:43 AM
https://www.coindesk.com/robinhood-raise-323-million-from-dst-sequoia-and-ribbit-capital-in-funding-round?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=coindesk&utm_term=&utm_content=&utm_campaign=Organic%20

Robinhood, a trading platform for stocks and digital assets, announced a $323 million Series E according to a Reuters’ report.

DST Global, a prominent investor in internet startups led the financing round along with crypto-notables Ribbit Capital and Sequoia.

According to Reuters, the company will direct the capital towards expanding the business and offering new financial services.

“We’ll use the funding to keep pursuing our mission of democratizing finance for all,” a Robinhood representative wrote in a statement.

Since offering crypto assets beginning in January 2018, the Silicon Valley-based startup has rolled out a number of coins and crypto-related trading features. In May, Robinhood launched cryptocurrency trading for seven assets including bitcoin and ethereum in New York.

Notably, the firm added ethereum classic trading one day ahead of Coinbase in August 2018. It offers crypto trading in bitcoin, ethereum, bitcoin cash, ethereum classic, litecoin, and dogecoin to 20 states.

Nearly a year ago, in September, Robinhood started the IPO process in motion. CEO Baiju Bhatt said at the time, “Being a public company I think aligns very closely with our mission as well. And it’s definitely on the horizon, not in the immediate term, but that’s something we are thinking about.”

The platform has gained popularity through offering commission-free trades. It is also looking to add cash management services.

Robinhood’s total valuation topped $7.6 billion with this latest round, which also saw participation from Thrive Capital and NEA.
20  Bitcoin / Press / [2019-07-18] 12 world leaders. 12 opinions about crypto. on: July 19, 2019, 07:07:17 AM
https://quotes.cointelegraph.com = explains country status, sounds like Pres. of Brazil is lying

World Leaders from these countries speak about BITCOIN:

Brazil = "I do not know what bitcoin is."

US =  "I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air. Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity..."

China = "A new generation of technology represented by artificial intelligence, quantum information, mobile communications, internet of things and blockchain is accelerating breakthrough applications."

Russia = "Federal laws [are] aimed at the development of the digital economy, including determining the procedure for conducting civil law transactions in electronic form, as well as regulating digital financial assets and attracting financial resources using digital technologies. Deadline — July 1, 2019."

South Africa
= "To ensure that we effectively and with greater urgency harness technological change in pursuit of inclusive growth and social development, I have appointed a Presidential Commission on the 4th Industrial Revolution."

France = "Let’s do this in Europe, [be at the] the vanguard of agricultural data by developing tools that will track every product from raw material production to packaging and processing."

India = "The government does not consider cryptocurrencies as legal tender or coin and will take all measures to eliminate [the] use of these cryptoassets in financing illegitimate activities, or as part of the payment system."

Japan = "In addition to the financial effects, we see that blockchain has the potential to make various industries safer and more efficient. Certain local venture companies are utilizing the ‘sandbox system,’ and are striving to be the world’s first business model to enhance the liquidity of digital assets."

Malta = "We will now be showing people the added value of [blockchain] technology [by] applying it to something which they will use in their daily lives. This shows how the digital transformation will affect their lives."

Ukraine = "You may say that I'm a naive dreamer, but we really want to build a country inside a smartphone, a government inside a smartphone. […] Innovations make all the processes transparent and efficient and deprive corrupt officials of their livelihoods. Would a spetsnaz blackmail you to seize documents if these documents were digitalized? Would another raider change the owner’s name in cadastre records if it were a blockchain records?"

Albania = "As part of our effort to open up new markets and create new opportunities for well-paid jobs and qualified people […] we [have been] exploring the possibility of setting up a regulatory framework on cryptocurrency which is a shocking novelty nowadays and where the opportunity to be innovative and set up a center of gravity for innovative financial markets is open for every country despite their level of development."

Belarus = "Wait, we’ll build a nuclear power plant and will have excess of electricity… I’ve left some room there. We’ll build farms and we’ll be mining these bitcoins and selling them. Moreover, they say when there is a bitcoin, there is no problem to sell it."
