CERN Chamber Music - High Energy Music

Music by Physicists
How cool is that?

I listened to classical music when I used to do my math and science homework. I listen now when I write software. This make perfect sense to me. I think it is the same neural paths.
Music is also nature, these melodies are inherent in the data obtained in the experiments.

A while back I remember reading how playing a DNA sequence  formed a melody

Inequality for All

Inequality for All can be viewed on Netflix

America is no longer a democracy - never mind the democratic republic envisioned by Founding Fathers. Rather, it has taken a turn down elitist lane and become a country led by a small dominant class comprised of powerful members who exert total control over the general population - an oligarchy, said a new study jointly conducted…

America is an oligarchy, not a democracy or republic, university study finds

Net Neutrality - best served by John Oliver

This is a complex issue and John Oliver does an excellent job of explaining why you should care.
My blogs and website might get relegated to the "slow lane" and it is criminal what Comcrap did to Netflix. Watch, Laugh and Comment to the FCC, time is getting short.

A new look!

Times change, technology changes
I've been posting to the three blogs for some time. This is blog I use for political stuff, videos and general commentary on the human condition. It was formatted using one of Blogger's pre-configured templates. It took a bit of tweaking to get it to appear as I wanted.  A while back Google came up with a "dynamic" template that had some nifty features like flyout menus and some animation to the photos. It was cleaner and less cluttered. It was also BUGGY. It has matured and I finally decided to move all the blogs to that template. You can see all the posts just by scrolling downward. You can also select HOW the postings will be displayed from a menu of choices.

It's not perfect, it has a few bugs but an active online community gives solutions. I like it because I don't have to tweak the template as much. I also think Google is doing a better job of promoting the site. 

I think the site is cleaner an more attractive now, the ads are still there and I hope you use them. Unlike Facebook, I actually get some money from purchases from the Amazon and Adsense purchases. Thanks for the patronage

Here is a preview of the screens you can choose (menu dropdown in upper left corner).

This is the classic view, very similar to the original format, most recent blog is posted.
On the right you can find a fly-out menu with several choices, This is default view

Magazine View
A choice that displays several postings in a "magazine" view
Menu selection pulldown on the upper left

Mosaic View
All photos no text, click on photo to see the details
Upper left dropdown

Sidebar View
Labels displayed

Timeslide View
Organized view by date

Right side fly-out has a "slideshow" choice which shows ALL the photos

Freedom of the Press (even if you are blogger)

This photo-journalist asked for permission to video this PUBLIC event for Governor Nathan Deal in Georgia.

Permission was granted by the wife of the farmer at this Pumpkin Farm. Fast forward to 13:55 to see how that turned out. BTW Governor Deal was in attendance

One last comment, a male reporter with a voice recorder and camera was not approached or questioned. Also I have filmed and photographed many a PUBLIC political events without any problems, nor would I expect any.
