    The T-Mobile SuperBowl commercial #LittleOnes contains only 77 words. But those words summarize the divisiveness and dehumanization of the progressive left and unloads them onto babies. The voice-over monologue is godless political pablum served up to build anger and selfishness in the next generation. The ad shows a circle of nine infants of different races, all about three months old. A soft female voice says: Welcome to the world, little ones. Yeah, its a lot to take in but you come with open minds and the instinct we are all equal. Ashley Rae Goldenberg at the Media Research Center has...

    "We expect a meaningful guide lower when the company reports on Thursday night, on the order of $5 to $6 billion compared to consensus revenue estimates," Long says. While the global iPhone user base is still growing, Long says users are keeping their devices longer, a trend that could continue in 2018 if the next model iPhones are not particularly impressive. He also says Apple may finally be losing its iPhone pricing power. "Following 10 years where [average selling prices] have generally moved higher, we believe prices will plateau as with the rest of the industry," Long says. BMO has...

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation is increasingly unable to access data from some electronic devices that could help in prosecuting criminals and terrorists, which is an ‘“urgent public safety issue,’ said Christopher Wray, director of the agency, speaking at a cybersecurity conference here Tuesday,” Sara Castellanos reports for The Wall Street Journal. “In fiscal year 2017, the FBI was unable to access the content of 7,775 devices tied to defendants and victims in criminal cases, Mr. Wray said in a speech at the International Conference on Cybersecurity. That number represents more than half of all the devices tied to criminal...

    "We do not need to go to war with America. America is committing collective suicide," Vladimir Putin told his assembly members recently. "We just have to wait until they are all in the psychiatric hospital," the Russian President said. Putin pointed to the "way they are using electricity" to define what he sees as a death spiral trend for the country that once considered the Russian threat to be at an end. International authority on the dangers of electromagnetic fields (EMF), Dr. Dietrick Klinghardt says America is racing itself to extinction because of three horrible, self-imposed threats, namely Autism, Alzheimer's...

    While most people think that mobile phones could cause cancer, this isnt the only health hazard that has been reported. We all are probably so addicted to our phones that we are unknowingly destroying our health. Here are some health risks of mobile phones you should be aware of: Health hazards of mobile phones #1. Cancer As reported by the World Health Organisation (WHO), mobile phones emit radiofrequency (RF) fields a 1000 times greater than what is emitted from base stations. Its obvious that this increased emission is likely to have some adverse effect on health of users. Although there...
  • Graphene and other carbon nanomaterials can replace scarce metals

    Scarce metals are found in a wide range of everyday objects around us. They are complicated to extract, difficult to recycle and so rare that several of them have become "conflict minerals" which can promote conflicts and oppression. A survey at Chalmers University of Technology now shows that there are potential technology-based solutions that can replace many of the metals with carbon nanomaterials, such as graphene. They can be found in your computer, in your mobile phone, in almost all other electronic equipment and in many of the plastics around you. Society is highly dependent on scarce metals, and this...

    1. Ahmad Abu Adass In 2005, the last year of his life, Ahmad Abu Adass was 22 and still living with his parents in Beirut, Lebanon. He was kind and liked people, his friends later told investigators, but none of them thought he was very sophisticated. The best way to describe him was simple, one said. He was generous and a little nave. He was very weak, physically. A Sunni Muslim of Palestinian descent, Adass had become interested in religion and now spent many hours at the Arab University Mosque near his home. It was there, after a prayer session,...

We chatted about her favorite songs and TV shows, and I asked her what she likes to do with her friends. We go to the mall, she said. Do your parents drop you off?, I asked, recalling my own middle-school days, in the 1980s, when Id enjoy a few parent-free hours shopping with my friends. NoI go with my family, she replied.

    This week the 10th anniversary of the introduction of the Apple iPhone was celebrated. A lot has changed in cell phone technology since 2007. By our current standards, cell phones before the iPhone were crude. The Motorola RAZR was the hip phone back then along with the Blackberry for business. Things changed rapidly after the introduction of the iPhone. I remember visiting Venezuela at the end of 2011 and laughing over the fact that Blackberries were their most popular "advanced" phone since they were already obsolete in the states. I think I first became aware of how much iPhones and...

    Walking alongside rice paddies and water buffalo on the outskirts of Dhaka with Bangladeshi economist Muhammad Yunus was like walking down the red carpet with a Hollywood movie star. Women in saris grabbed at the handsome man with thick gray hair, flirting and addressing him with ease. I was surprised, given we were in a conservative Muslim country where rural women typically take a backseat to men. But this man, who won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, had taught them to stand up to their husbands by giving them small loans that now put them in the driver's seat....

    Four months into the Trump Administration, political activists with their congressional representatives on speed-dial may be running a tad short on cell phone minutes. Credo Mobile, a small national cellular carrier, sees that as a good business opportunity. Earlier this month, the company launched an unlimited data plan with a unique selling point. Its formal taglineProgress Without Limitsappears in an online ad alongside images of Trump with a giant X over his mouth. Thats just part of Credos attempts to align itself with the resistance, though its in line with the values the company has espoused since its foundingand part...

    Please stop, I silently beg the three drivers heading down the on ramp to Interstate 70 from Washington Avenue. Im driving parallel to them at 55 mph with a line of traffic behind me. I have my turn signal on signifying that Im getting off at the exit just west of that on ramp. I cannot slam on my brakes and stop on the highway to allow these drivers to merge into my lane. Yet they keep coming down the ramp toward me. Fear has crept into my throat and I cannot scream if I wanted to. Dont they understand...

  • Why Verizon is losing more cellphone customers than ever

    For the first time, the nation's largest wireless provider is losing customers faster than it can replace them. It's a major milestone for Verizon, which on Thursday reported a net decline of 289,000 cellphone subscribers over the past four months. Even though Verizon usually loses some cellular customers every quarter, it has historically lured enough back to be able to report growth in that part of its business. But recent months have seen hundreds of thousands of customers defect to competitors such as T-Mobile and Sprint, analysts say. Things could have been even worse if Verizon hadn't suddenly reintroduced unlimited...

    As the discussion over wiretapping and foreign hacking still dominates the conversation in Washington, an unusually high amount of suspicious cell phone activity in the nations capital has caught the attention of the Department of Homeland Security, raising concerns that U.S. officials are being monitored by a foreign entity. The issue was first reported in the Washington Free Beacon, but a source at telecom security firm ESD America confirmed the spike in suspicious activity to CBS News. ESD America, hired preemptively for a DHS pilot program this January called ESD Overwatch, first noticed suspicious activity around cell phone towers in...

    Cell phones have become ubiquitous over the last few years, along with the debate over whether or not they can cause cancer. While many agencies including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Food and Drug Administration and National Institute of Environmental Health say theyve found no link between cancer and the electromagnetic fields emanated by cell phones, a newly-released document is reheating the argument.It comes from the California Department of Public Health and is called Cell Phones and Health. It lists potential risks from cell phones to both adults and children. The 2014 document was held...
