    On Thanksgiving eve Attorney Sidney Powell filed a 104 Page BOMBSHELL COMPLAINT on massive voter fraud in the Georgia election this year. Then it was discovered that she simitaneously filed a complaint in Michigan as well. Then on Thanksgiving Day Sidney Powell retweeted two tweets by Liberty Times and Politics. The tweets included a court filing that includes information on Dominion and Edison Research’s connections to the Internet. We noted that the document identifies Dominion’s Trump-hater Eric Coomer is the inventor of the authentication function within the application. And then on page 16 of the legal filing the document identifies...

    Yes, he did. Joe and no amount of racial pandering will change that historical fact. A Joe Biden terrified by his puppet masters that the African-American vote is slipping away from the party of pandering made that absurd claim during a rare day trip from his basement bunker to Kenosha, Wisconsin. At least his handlers were able to find and lead him to Wisconsin which Hillary Clinton failed to do in 2016. Biden had just finished a meeting with the family of Jacob Blake, the young African-American shot after struggling with police his girlfriend had called for breaking into her...

    EDISON — The manhunt continues Thursday night for the robber who shot and killed a gas station attendant. Prosecutors on Thursday night said the suspect was still at large after authorities in Perth Amboy announced that a man had been pulled over from a Lyft and arrested, suggesting that the suspect had been found. "While someone was being questioned regarding the fatal shooting at the Speedway Gas Station in Edison, he has been released from custody," the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office said.

    Thomas Edison patented the light bulb in 1880. To drum up excitement around Christmas time, he strung up incandescent bulbs all around his Menlo Park laboratory compound to dazzle passing railway commuters. Two years later, Edison’s associate Edward Johnson had the brilliant idea to use electric lights to replace the beautiful, (but extremely hazardous!) candles used to decorate Christmas trees. He wrapped a tree with a string of 80 red, white and blue light bulbs and set it on a revolving platform in a window. Despite onlookers’ delight, due to expense (and a general distrust of indoor lighting) it would...

    TRENTON -- A tech company is choosing to relocate to Trenton over Wilmington, Delaware, after securing more than $17 million in state tax credits. The state Economic Development Authority on Thursday approved the Grow New Jersey tax credits for Maestro Technologies, a technology consulting and data management systems firm. Now headquartered in Edison, Maestro has a small office in Watchung and several employees who work remotely or at client sites across the country. CEO Kamal Bathla says the company wanted to centrally locate the staff into a new headquarters to better facilitate training, efficiency and product development. Maestro was deciding...

    We haven't really written much about the insane Theranos scandal, though we discussed it on our podcast. The whole story is pretty crazy -- involving a heavily hyped up company that appeared to basically be flat out lying to everyone about what it could do. The company still exists, but barely. The company's founder and CEO, who was plastered across magazine covers and compared frequently to Steve Jobs, has been banned from running a lab for two years, and the company is now facing a $140 million lawsuit from its biggest partner, Walgreens, who claims that Theranos repeatedly lied to...

    Litigator David Boies and the law firm he founded, Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP, have stopped doing legal work for Theranos Inc. after disagreeing about the strategy for handling ongoing government investigations of the blood-testing company, according to people familiar with the matter. Mr. Boies, 75 years old, has been one of the country’s best-known litigators since the late 1990s. He became Theranos’s outside counsel after being approached in 2011 by two investors in the Palo Alto, Calif., startup. He fiercely defended Theranos against questions about its technology and operations. Those efforts included threatening to take legal action against The...

    San Francisco Business Times ^ | Nov 18, 2016, 1:40pm PST | Ron Leuty Reporter San Francisco Business Times
    It's worth asking why Elizabeth Holmes is still leading the embattled blood testing company Theranos Inc. But there may be a good reason why she still is in charge, one that has little to do with the scandal-ridden company's performance to date. Forget what venture capitalist Tim Draper — one of the first to invest in the Palo Alto company — implied this week that Holmes is being attacked because she's a young, female entrepreneur. The simple fact is that Theranos has not been able to deliver on its technology from a commercial, scientific or regulatory standpoint, and that falls...

    2016 has not been too kind to Elizabeth Holmes, the Steve-Jobs wannabe in charge of fraudulent Theranos. She has thus far been banned for 2 years from operating labs, removed from hosting fundraisers for Hillary and lost her entire net worth. And now, the Wall Street Journal has published the "tell-all" story of the whistle-blower, 26 year old Tyler Shultz, who brought the the whole Theranos farce crashing down. It's a sordid tale complete with all the expected twists and turns of a Jason Bourne thriller including intimidation, coercion and private detectives. Tyler Shultz is the grandson of George Shultz,...

    IT ALL began with the best, if exceedingly ambitious, of intentions – to develop a machine that by a simple pinprick on a patient’s finger could detect any disease known to man. But it ended in the most tragic of circumstances, with the firm behind the invention crashing and a British scientist who had devoted himself to the project taking his own life. Now his widow has spoken out about the treatment he suffered before and after his death at the age of 67, accusing his employers of heartlessness.

    Twenty-six energy companies with business before the state donated nearly $10million to Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Democratic Party over the past eight years — donations that often were made within days or weeks of winning favors. That’s the contention of “Brown’s Dirty Hands“ a report released Wednesday by the Santa Monica-based public interest group Consumer Watchdog. [snip]The report alleges that Brown and his operatives have used the California Democratic Party as “a political slush fund” to receive contributions from unpopular energy companies in amounts greater than permitted to his candidate committee. The group has logged its report as...

    However, the NY Times' archivist, Evan Sandhaus has an amusing example (via Mathew Ingram) concerning that time, back in 1878, when the NY Times editorialized against Thomas Edison's phonograph and aereophone, for the fact that they could destroy everyone's privacy. Here's just the beginning: The Aerophone Something ought to be done to Mr. Edison, and there is a growing conviction that it has better be done with a hemp rope.

    What storm is this? The horrific blizzard that hit New York on February 17, 1902.  It would be considered the worst snowstorm to hit the metropolitan area since the Great Blizzard of 1888. (Read all about it here.)  I assume we're actually in the aftermath of the blizzard here, as the snow shovels are out, and the kids are playing. What area is being filmed?  Madison Square Park (near 23rd Street), with theWorth Memorial in the background of some angles Who made this?  Edison Manufacturing Company. Their Manhattan studio was nearby, at 41 East 21st Street. Who's the director? The head of Edison's film division Edwin S. Porter, considered by most...

    It’s not the brightest of ideas. But the federal government went ahead and banned light bulbs. As of Jan. 1, 75- and 100-watt incandescent light bulbs were banned. Once the ones on the shelves run out, that’s it. Canadians will be left to light their homes with two main remaining options: compact fluorescents – the twirly-looking ones – and LEDs. Next year 40- and 60-watt incandescent bulbs will also get the same treatment. All in the name of energy conservation and feel-good enviro policies! Even though the compact fluorescents come with their own problems due to the mercury in them....
