Birth Outside Of The Norm

Having a baby is a miracle. One thing that I’ve found out is that nature provides several unique ways of getting the miracle accomplished. After a Swedish woman discovered she had no uterus and could not have a child, she desperately sought out an alternative. Yet, overcoming the odds by receiving a uterus from a 61-year-old lady, she went on to have a healthy boy. The woman made history and deserves the attention. Are there other examples of birth outside of the norm?

What about a healthy baby that grew in the abdomen? Heard of this one? Didn’t think so. This is certainly another unique way of populating the earth, but it does happen.

Morality is debate open for discussion. What about the old standard of the girl getting married before birthing? Is this standard no longer the standard? Is birth out of wedlock the new norm?

According to the Census Bureau facts, the number of first-born U.S. babies born into a home with a married mother and father has fallen below 60% for the first time.

Can I Choose And Keep My Internet Browser?

It seems like every 6 months I’m being force to change my internet browser. Can I choose and keep my internet browser? Why can’t I? It’s my computer and my choice.

Let’s be frank here. I pick out my own socks, my own pants, and shirt, etc. My old internet browser is something that’s familiar and comfortable. It looks good and it’s efficient.

Why don’t these companies give me the option? Can I choose my internet browser and can I keep it as long as I want? Why not?

The SATCOM Pirates Are At It Again

I have been having fun on my NooElec dongle, using it as my software defined radio. I was monitoring the 250 MHz portion and I wasn’t sure what I had witnessed. Is this UHF Pirates on a 250 MHz SATCOM? This is some interesting stuff. The SATCOM pirates are at it again!

The pirates are using the US Military SATCOM system to chat. And guess what? They’re being heard around the world it seems.

These dudes have hijacked the frequencies and are laughing about it? When I listened to these guys chatting, I didn’t have a clue what they were doing. Believe me. They were laughing.

If you have the dongle or a police scanner that has this band plan on it, try it.

Eric Holder Resigns Fast And Furiously

The United States Attorney General is the title that Eric Holder holds, that is until his resignation takes effect. I don’t know much about the position, but this official is chosen by the president and confirmed by the Senate. The question at hand is this: Why is Holder resigning so fast and furiously? Maybe because he has become a political lightning rod?

It turns out that Obama’s administration has been caught up in a scandal since 2010, more specifically a gunrunning scandal. Federal agents have taken a role in this gunrunning scandal and maybe Holder is the fall guy.

And to whom are these guns being sold to? Probably Mexican drug cartels, according to the documents released to the CBS network. ‘Fast and Furious’ is the label that’s being attached to this red hot potato.

It appears that a judge ordered the documents to be released by October 1, the Fast and Furious documents as referred to.

What is the big deal? Allegedly, there were 2,000 weapons that came up missing and were unaccounted for. The real problem stems from the death of Border patrol agent Brian Terry, because two of the missing rifles showed up at the crime scene. A Mexican man convicted of the crime was the first to be connected to the Fast and Furious scandal.

The types of arms used by these types of people are: 9mm pistols; .38 Super pistols; 5.7mm pistols; .45-caliber pistols; AR-15-type rifles; and AK-47-type rifles.

The Fast and Furious Operation was part of a bigger project called Project Gunrunner.

And so it goes back to business as usual, as we proceed with all things in the news. Back to the morning edition

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Can Transfer More Data Faster

What’s new in technology? The new USB cable 3.0, also called SuperSpeed (SS), can transfer more data and will be 10 times faster than the current 2.0 USB cable. The cable will be blue and it will have the SS label on it. There is a 3.0 adapter available that is currently on the market.

New Computers Come With 3.0 And 2.0 Ports

The new laptop is equipped with both — the 3.0 and 2.0 ports: Dell Inspiron i3531-1200BK 15.6-Inch Laptop Win with Windows 8.1.

Here is the new desktop if you prefer: Dell Inspiron i3646-1000BLK Desktop with Windows 8.0.

This is interesting. The Windows 7 version is more expensive: Dell Inspiron i3647-1233BLK Desktop (Windows 7).

3.0 Adapter Is Available

The older computer will be able to connect a 3.0 to a 2.0 port, but the speed will remain the same. It takes the 3.0 USB port to gain faster speeds.

Until a computer is purchased with USB 3.0, you will need to install a USB 3.0 PCI Express card to provide a USB 3.0 interface. For example: Anker® Uspeed USB 3.0 PCI-E Express Card with 4 USB 3.0 Ports and 5V 4-Pin Power Connector for Desktops [VL805 Chipset].

Manufacturer’s Note

PLEASE NOTE: This PCI-E card is powered by a 5V 4 pin power connector or sata 15 pin power connector. Please confirm that your computer power supply is equipped with a 5V 4 pin power connector plug or sata 15 pin power connector before purchasing. This is necessary to ensure sufficient power supply and smooth transfers, particularly for large data transfers from hard drive disks (3TB or above).
