  • New Clinton Defense on Email Scandal: ‘Everybody Did It’ [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 7 Feb 2016 | John Semmens
    A recent discovery that former Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice may have received a handful of classified emails on their private computers prompted Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to claim she's been exonerated. "The vast right-wing conspiracy trying to derail my campaign has been rebutted by this new evidence," Hillary contended. "Singling me out when the use of private computers for transmitting classified government communications was standard practice reveals the baseless hypocrisy of their charges." Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif) says "Clinton's 'everybody did it' argument is a gross distortion of reality. It's akin to a notorious drunk...

    Bras, garters, corsets, lingerie, handbags last week’s SHOT show was not just the site of new gun announcements. Companies took the opportunity to showcase a number of concealed carry options designed specifically for women. Personal and home protection is a foremost reason women own firearms, according to research conducted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The NSSF survey of women who owned at least one firearm found that more than 42 percent have a concealed carry permit. Many women need a way to carry firearms that is designed for the female body – not one designed for men and simply...
  • How Trump Trusted The Laundry … And Got Moneyballed By Ted Cruz

    ARC ^ | February 2, 2016 | Dan Rowinsky, editor-in-chief
    Sometimes you wear the shirt. And sometimes the shirt wears you. The shirt has been wearing Donald Trump for probably his entire life. Why? Because Trump seems to always bet on the laundry. Trump came in second in the Iowa caucuses. He underperformed his lead in the polls by something like six points. Ted Cruz overachieved by a couple points with the swing big enough to turn Trump into the runner up. How did this happen? Trump has been dominating the polls and the national conversation since the beginning of summer 2015. Basically, it goes something like this: Trump bet...

    If you've been keeping up with 3D printing news at all, you're probably pretty familiar with metal 3D printing by now. It's one of the fastest-growing sectors in the industry; just about every major 3D printer manufacturer is scrambling to keep up with the rapidly developing metal technology. Not only is it becoming less expensive and more accessible, but material capabilities keep expanding, with new metals and alloys being introduced on what seems like a weekly basis by certain companies. Even if you have only a basic knowledge of metal 3D printing, you probably know that it's done with powder...

    Looming FBI-recommended Hillary indictment will end Clinton "dynasty " Is there a pardon in the wings for Chelsea and Bill? CLINTONS: Talked their way out of multiple sunburn since the 1980s. The long nightmare is finally over. A sitting President can pardon anyone - prior to indictment, after indictment, before or after conviction. There is precedent: Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon before he was indicted. President Ford reasoned that the American public would not be able to countenance a former Commander-In-Chief sitting in a jail cell. Nixon's crimes were rather benign in comparison to the activist First Lady who became...

Megyn did herself no favors in that regard, and she had better hope that nothing ever disrupts the media oligopoly (a losing bet, IMHO) as if it does she is going to find her best and highest calling in Nevada somewhat outside of Clark County. The program Trump put together, with essentially zero notice, was very nice. It was the best political speechifying and rallying that I've seen since I have been sentient enough to pay...

    The London Daily Mail ^ | January 27, 2016 | Victoria Woollaston
    From the moon landings being an elaborate hoax, to climate change deniers, there are many conspiracy theories that are believed by a large number of people worldwide. But the amount of people who would have been involved in keeping such large-scale secrets suggests that if they were true, they would have been exposed by someone by now. With this in mind, a physicist has calculated how many people would have potentially worked on some of the most popular theories, and what is the likelihood of them all keeping a secret. Using this model, the truth about the moon landings being...

    The Ted Cruz campaign is a data-driven one, according to a National Review profile. So his top advisers point to the books and scholarly articles of political scientists as tools that have guided the campaign's thinking during its 2016 presidential run. And one of those influencers happens to be James Campbell, UB Distinguished Professor of Political Science. "I have been told by a few reporters that the Cruz campaign said my research had been very influential in devising their election strategy," says Campbell. "I was unaware of this, but it makes sense given the fact that my research on elections...

    With the internet age and its endless possibilities in the realms of publishing, communication, and collaboration, opportunities have never been so widely accessible for creators. But how has our new digital world affected the pathways to invention? In Inventology: How We Dream Up Things That Change the World, out today, journalist Pagan Kennedy offers a fresh take on how the digital era has upended the traditional pathways for creation. When Kennedy began writing about inventors for The New York Times, she soon "would marvel at how few of the people were professional inventors, designers, in corporate innovation labs." It led...

    Golly, how could that have happened? Hillary Clinton’s use of an insecure secret email server was obviously a problem in and of itself, but the steady drip, drip, drip of information has revealed that Mrs. Clinton’s latest scandal goes well beyond mere procedural issues. Just last week we learned that her communications contained information from some of the country’s most secretive and highly guarded programs. We also learned that China and Russia probably had access to it. Now, because it’s a day that ends in ‘Y,’ Hillary’s email scandal has gotten worse. According to the New York Post, the FBI...

Yep, that's right: You can't run Windows 7 or 8.1 on Skylake CPUs (or later). There's a woolly, limited get-out-of-jail-free card for a short while, but this is just the latest irritating Microsoft scheme to get everyone onto Windows 10. The way it's always been in the past is that enterprises could buy today's hardware, but put their current image on it, only upgrading when it made sense.

A solvent trap is just that, a device that allows one to attach a canister, fuel filter, oil filter, etc, to the end of a weapon to catch the solvent that comes out the end of the barrel when cleaning. These devices also catch patches that are run through the barrel as well as the nasty “sneeze” of solvent that flicks off the copper bore brush when coming out the end of the barrel....

That doesn’t mean she’s guaranteed to be charged or even convicted, since you still have to allow for the corruption and politicization of the justice system, unfortunately. But no serious person can argue she is not guilty of a felony after the e-mail the State Department released (with great reluctance, I’m sure) late last night. In it, she is talking with her then-deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, who is supposed to be getting her...

In 2011, we published a set of guidelines that our user community deemed “acceptable,” and these acceptable ads are shown by default to our users to allow a compromise between blocking all ads, or no ads at all.

We’ve covered similar stories on Apple and their patent applications as well, with mum being the general and concise word on their particular end. Often, while we can see what these mega-companies have going on conceptually, all that’s left to do is speculate. But boy, everyone sure is giving us some good stuff to chew on lately. Last we checked, Samsung had been awarded a patent regarding multicolor ink for 3D printing, That 3D printer concept operates with several...
  • Windows 10 & Xactimate Program

    12/13/2015 7:36:53 AM PST · by hsmomx3 · 13 replies
    Has anyone ever used Xactimate? http://www.xactware.com/en-us/solutions/claims-estimating/xactimate/28/system-requirements/ I attempted to install the trial on my Windows 10 laptop and I received an MSFT pop-up saying it could not be installed. No explanation. One of the requirements is having Internet Explorer which I no longer have as it is the Edge browser in Windows 10 or Chrome, which seems to have malware and I removed that months ago. I am baffled, let alone not so computer/tech savvy as they say this product can be used with WIN 10. Thanks!!

    There is also evidence the poll to ban Trump from the U.K. may have been fraudulently manipulated by overseas interests. A parliamentary petition to stop all immigration and close the U.K. borders until ISIS is defeated is now at 450,000 signatures and growing. The petition was started by a copywriter, Tina Reeves, who lives in Plymouth. According to the petition—which was created on November 28,
  • Social media? The new direction in the war on ISIS -- an establishment distraction from Trump?

    First Trump drew the harshest of criticism from the "establishment" over his comments on muslim immigration. Now as the waters start to recede a bit some things are emerging. Namely, it's starting to creep up on some that it's actually a fairly decent Idea. Everybody watched for the trap door to drop and listened for the snap of the noose. Nothing happened. Now emerging ... the war on social media and it's unfettered access to the plebeians. Social media is a problem for the "establishment". First immediate concern is ISIS and their successful social media propaganda campaign. How far behind...

    The Other McCain ^ | December 9, 2015 | Robert S. McCain
    Because I’ve been up to my ears in radical feminism for the past year, I haven’t monitored the day-to-day developments of the GOP presidential primary campaign the way I did during the 2012 cycle. As a result, I am unaware (and really, do not care) which of my blogger friends are supporting which candidate. My attitude for the 2016 campaign can be summarized in three words: Anybody But Clinton. After my (ultimately futile) hyper-involvement in the 2012 campaign, I simply do not want to expend mental or emotional energy worrying about who the Republicans nominate. Others do not have that...

    Fellow Freepers, I am looking into getting my son (13, soon to be 14) a build-it-yourself computer kit. He has ripped apart a couple of old laptops, but they don't have compatible parts. I am looking for a kit that he can use to learn to put together a working cpu that is usable and can be loaded with an operating system. I see a couple available on Amazon, but one looks too simplistic and the other is too complicated. When it comes to hardware and operating systems, I am very much a novice. I welcome your insights. Thanks so...

    Good morning! I thought it odd that I hadn't received notice of updates on windows 7 so I went to the update panel and the only update was for windows 10. Then I noticed the little blue link "show all available updates" and went to the page where you select your updates. I selected all 34 that are there. Clicked okay, and when I got back to the update page up in the panel where you click start download is the same one and only aggravating windows 10 update I DO NOT WANT. I'm already having a bad morning and...

    A new home shopping channel plans to make buying a gun as simple as calling the number on your screen. Starting in 2016, a network called Gun TV will join the peddlers of jewelry, weight loss programs and kitchen gadgets that regularly populate the odd hours of late night television. Its tagline: "Live Shopping. Fully Loaded." The channel, owned by a parent company called the Social Responsibility Network, will air mostly shopping programming for guns, ammunition and hunting accessories for six early-morning hours every day with goals of eventually ramping up to a 24/7 operation, according to the Desert Sun...
