Police Department In Northern AZ To Deploy Gun Cameras For Officers

Police Department In Northern AZ To Deploy Gun Cameras For Officers | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Officers in one Arizona community will have a new bit of technology on their purpose, a gun camera. Will it be a tool for them or a problem?
Kenneth Weene's insight:
I must admit that I'm delighted the police force in Williams, Arizona is going to be using these guns with enabled camera. I do wonder if they will in any way impede the use of the weapons, I hope not. As for making it much clearer whether use of the weapon was or was not justified, this should certainly make for much clearer calls. That is one goal of the Black Lives Matter movement that I strongly share. 

As the article suggests, in any instance the results may very well protect the good cops who have pulled and used their weapon for the right reasons. I hope that in the vast number of instances exoneration for the officers will be the result. However, stopping those bad apples is important.

Of course, Williams is a small community, and I'm not sure how often any of their officers have to pull a weapon. It's also a fairly homogenous community. I'd like to see similar trials being made in other places, places where there is more likely to be serious questions. How about it Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, New York City? 

By the way, I hope that my conservative friends who think I'm somehow unaware of their concerns and only read leftist material will note the source of this report, Bearing Arms, hardly a left-leaning site.

These are the strangest UFO sightings from the Pentagon's secret alien program

These are the strangest UFO sightings from the Pentagon's secret alien program | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
The Defense Department investigated reports of everything from 'glowing auras' to unidentified flying objects.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
Sounds to me like somebody found a boondoggle and decided to see if they can get a TV series out of the wasted money. Wait a second, didn't they already do X-Factor? What do you think? Aliens or not? In the past, present, and/or near future? Friendly, enemy, or maybe come to save us from ourselves? 

What's your take on aliens from outer space? I set my take out in "The Brane of the Hills," which is the book within the book in my novella The Stylite, the first of the three pieces in Broody New Englander. My sci fi reading friends tell me it's a rather unique view. https://www.amazon.com/Broody-New-Englander-Kenneth-Weene/dp/1502759284/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

5 Professional Santas Reveal Their Secrets, From $800-an-Hour Pay to Beard Maintenance

5 Professional Santas Reveal Their Secrets, From $800-an-Hour Pay to Beard Maintenance | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
These Santa Clauses reveal all the secrets to their jobs including investing their own money in suits and having real beards all year long
Kenneth Weene's insight:
No, that isn't  Santa Clause, it's me in the photo. Of course, I've often been confused with the old gift-giver. I'm sure you can see why. 

The idea of multiple Santas confused me as a kid, way before I looked so much like him. It was rather obvious to me that the various bell-ringers around town couldn't all be the one and only Mr. Claus. I wanted to figure out which one was real. I'm not sure why since I knew he wouldn't be visiting our Jewish home anyway. But, I did want to know. 

I never got to figure out who was the read deal, but the folks at the Dew Drop Inne, when three Santas showed up at the bar, decided on a test. Want to read about it? Well, you can get Tales From the Dew Drop Inne in print, Kindle, and audiobook. Check it out at:

Can Kim Jong Un control the weather? North Korea’s state-run media says so.

Can Kim Jong Un control the weather? North Korea’s state-run media says so. | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
The Korean Central News Agency is known for making claims about its leaders that vary from mild exaggeration to “Chronicles of Narnia.”
Kenneth Weene's insight:
It's that time of year when reindeer fly and myths abound. 
As Heroic Leader knows, only he controls the snow atop Paektu. Fear not that he gone to far, he searches there for unicorns. 
His greatness astrologers foretold with double rainbows at his birth.

Yeah, okay, not great poetry, but I'm sure that the Noble Leader of North Korea will provide me with better inspiration once I've taken the medicine he discovered that will cure "AIDS, Ebola, many cancers, heart disease, impotence, the common cold, “harm from use of computers,” epilepsy, all forms of hepatitis, venereal disease and aging. It also, for some reason, renders its users 'anti-radioactive'". 

And, yes, the people  of North Korea believe this stuff. Meanwhile, China is building refugee camps in case the US attacks Pyongyang. Hopefully, as his last act Kim will transport magically his people to there refuge. 

Crazy as all this sounds, one last thing we should keep in mind about Kim: he's been selecting the best minds in his country and having them educated in cyber-warfare. While America is cutting back on graduate level education by denying students financial aid and even tax breaks, our adversaries are thinking about how to dominate the future. Anybody for smarter politicians in Washington?

White House Says It Believes Saudi Arabia Will Open Yemen Port

White House Says It Believes Saudi Arabia Will Open Yemen Port | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
About 8 million people are on brink of famine with outbreaks of cholera and diphtheria
Kenneth Weene's insight:
I don't often get to praise Mr. Trump, but in this instance I am glad that he is putting pressure on Saudi Arabia to end the blockade of Yemen's port. There are many innocent civilians facing injury, starvation, lack of medicines, and death because of the rivalry between the Iranians and Saudis that has led to year another brutal war. 

Certainly one way to reduce the problem of refugees in the world is to reduce the number of people needing to flee their homes. I'm sure they people of Yemen want a return to peace and to their own way of life. So, kudos to Mr. Trump for doing something positive.

Why Jeremiah Risked His Life For A Notebook

Why Jeremiah Risked His Life For A Notebook | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Why he risked his life for a notebook.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
Doctors Without Borders is one of the great organization of the world. Its doctors and other staff risk their lives every day to bring help and hope to people in the middle of the worst conflicts and conditions. This particular story is from South Sudan, a country that is in terrible turmoil. Jeremiah is an HIV and tuberculosis counselor with Doctors Without Borders. His story illustrates the dedication of that organization and reminds us how very precious such men and women are in a world that is given to so much strife.

If you're interested in South Sudan, you would love to read the memoir I helped my friend Deng Mayik Atem write about his experience as one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. While the book is looking for the right publisher, you can watch the trailer here.

How Neolithic farming sowed the seeds of modern inequality 10,000 years ago

How Neolithic farming sowed the seeds of modern inequality 10,000 years ago | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
The prehistoric shift towards cultivation began our preoccupation with hierarchy and growth – and even changed how we perceive the passage of time
Kenneth Weene's insight:
A fascinating look at history and anthropology. The premise is that our hunter-gatherer ancestors were far less fearful of the vagaries of the gods or of the raids of enemies than the early farming communities that appeared so had less need for hierarchy. On the other hand, those farmers could, in good times, produce far more and live more comfortably. 

I wonder how many of the people who are preparing for the apocalypse are expecting to once again join bands of hunter-gatherers. Not may. I think they tend to expect more of that early farmer competition, which would mean starting over already in the wrong mindset. 

Not to worry, most of us won't survive anyway. But for those who do, I recommend you read Broody New Englander to get a better idea of what life in small towns is about.

Anglican Minister Urges Prayers for Prince George to Be Gay

The Very Rev. Kelvin Holdsworth said that the church might accept same-sex marriage if the prince, now 4, one day found the love of “a fine young gentleman.”
Kenneth Weene's insight:
So here's your bit of bizarro news for the day. The kid is four and here is this "minister" praying that he will grow up gay. How's that for putting one's personal agenda ahead of the rights of others. When people condemn the extremism of the left, this is certainly a perfect example. Meanwhile, do you or I care whom this toddler may someday marry? Of course not. By the way, who is the woman his uncle is marrying?

Apart from the fact that the president will never read them, the only thing the books in this festive display have in common is that they’re coloured green

Back at the Trumps, the best part is that the books were chosen by the interior decorator for their color not for any meaning. Not that anyone things Mr. Trump reads anything over tweet length.

Greece prepares to do away with compulsory sharia in Western Thrace

Greece prepares to do away with compulsory sharia in Western Thrace | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
AS PART of a passionate campaign to solve an apparently non-existent problem, American state legislatures have been presented, over the past decade, with at least 120 bills that sought to outlaw the practice of sharia, the Islamic legal system, and 15 of them have been enacted.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
I love the vagaries of history. How did this small section of Greece fall under the sway of sharia? Well, that's a long story, goes back to the early nineteen twenties. But is it reasonable to have that anomaly continue in a modern EU country? Certainly not when even the Muslim country next door, Turkey, has done away with it. But, the sisters of the dead man want their share of his inheritance. After all, that's what the sharia rule is, so they went to court, yes the regular court, to force his widow to pony up. 

Meanwhile, realistically and especially in the area of marriage—as if marriage and realistic can go together—many people all over the world opt to give religious authorities a say in their lives. In some places, like Chechnya, there is a movement to increase the role of the religious courts. And, in the US, let's not forget the Roy Moores who want to make the bible the basis of our law. 

Some stories are just, well good for the soul or at least for the little grey cells. Exercise yours and tell me what you think the proper role of religion is in regulating lives.

Is the World's First Nuclear Fusion Plant Finally on Track? Will the world someday have abundant, cheap, safe energy?

Is the World's First Nuclear Fusion Plant Finally on Track? Will the world someday have abundant, cheap, safe energy? | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor has completed half of the work needed for its plasma core, experts said.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
The idea of a scientific partnership to build a fusion plant was first conceived at the 1985 Geneva Summit between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. The ITER project began in earnest in 2007, and was originally due to be completed in 10 years for $5.6 billion. However, the project is more than a decade behind schedule, and its estimated cost has ballooned to about $22 billion. A total of 35 countries are involved, and they will share the resulting technology. 

Is this globalism? Yes, and for the betterment of humankind. Safe energy that will not contribute to global warming and pollution is certainly a great goal. Could the US or any country have done it on its own? Maybe, but at what cost and only to have other countries jump onto the learning curve the way they did with fission plants and atomic bombs. 

It is when humans begin to cooperate this way that i have some faith in and hope for our species. It's like learning to farm bananas instead of having troops of chimpanzees warring over the trees that are available. Of course, too often the result of that farming has been to produce inferior bananas and for members of some troops to end up going hungry. Maybe this time we can do better.

Massachusetts Named Healthiest State for 2017. Here Are the Least Healthy

Massachusetts Named Healthiest State for 2017. Here Are the Least Healthy | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

Congratulations Massachusetts, Hawaii, Vermont, Utah, and Connecticut: named healthiest states for 2017.  Least healthy: Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, and West Virginia. 

Kenneth Weene's insight:
Rankings included consideration of smoking, obesity, infant mortality and infectious diseases – in addition to the availability of health care providers and levels of air pollution. 

This year's report pointed out that the nation is facing serious public health challenges, including rising rates of premature death and an uneven concentration of key health care providers.

The biggest problem for many remains the affordability of health care and of insurance, but even if you have medical insurance you still have to find competent providers, which means that doctors and other health care professionals have to want to live in your state. 

By the way, one of the best ways to keep healthy is reading. Exercise your mind; it helps you to stay young.

Invasion Of Mysterious Sea People -Enigmatic 3,200-Year-Old Luwian Hieroglyphic Inscription Sheds New Light On Ancient Puzzle | Ancient Pages

Invasion Of Mysterious Sea People -Enigmatic 3,200-Year-Old Luwian Hieroglyphic Inscription Sheds New Light On Ancient Puzzle | Ancient Pages | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
 In 1878, archaeologists discovered a stone slab covered with ancient symbols in modern Turkey. The 29-meter-long bears the longest known hieroglyphic inscription from the Bronze Age. It is a Luwian hieroglyphic inscription and only a handful of scholars have been able to decipher it.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
About 3, 000 years ago The Sea People decimated the Bronze Age cultures of the eastern Mediterranean particularly in what is now Syria and Israel and wreaking havoc in Egypt in alliance with Libya. Who were these Sea People? History has never given definitive answers, butt now the puzzle may have been solved. For my part, I love archeology. Of course, I haven't a clue how to read this slab of hieroglyphics, but I am fascinated by what it can tell us. Interestingly, the bronze fabricators of that period relied on tin from what is now Afghanistan. I imagine that the wealth flowing back to Pashtun people intrigued those ancient warriors from Anatolia and sent them in search of wealth. 

Sometimes I try to imagine what life would have been like in other periods. I imagine myself on one of those raiding parties. The battle begins. The rams' horns are sounded and the drums and cymbals beaten. To arms, somebody cries. Thankfully, that's when i wake up. How about you? Do you ever dream of going back in time? Where do you end up? Funny, more likely I'd be a house slave in a Roman villa. At least I'd get to eat well. But, no, my dreams are always those raiding parties. Usually in the Mediterranean but occasionally I go Viking.

The Surprising Origins of 5 Hanukkah Traditions - Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season. | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
There's lots of history behind favorite Hanukkah traditions such as eating latkes, lighting candles and playing with dreidels.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
With Hanukkah starting tonight, it seemed appropriate to share this bit of traditions and their origins. So, as everybody sings Traditions from Fiddler on the Roof, eats potato latkes, and spins dreidels (an activity I abhor), let's remember that traditions are seldom reflections of real history, which is why they become fun. Seriously, who among us wants to camp out in the temple tending olive oil lamps and watching for the Syrian troops to come back and slaughter us? 

At any rate, here's hoping that you and yours have a wonderful holiday season. Now where can I get a good jelly donut?

Ford Will Build Electric Cars in Mexico, Self Driving Vehicles in Michigan: Shifting Its Plan

Ford Will Build Electric Cars in Mexico, Self Driving Vehicles in Michigan: Shifting Its Plan | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
The move will take advantage of lower costs and clear the way for a new Michigan plant to make driverless vehicles instead, which Ford said would mean even more jobs.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
Surprise, surprise, business will go on as usual. Big businesses are about profit and profit includes finding cheaper labor. Fine to invest in the more expensive American labor to build the new stuff, but let's head south of the border or across the Pacific to churn out the easier stuff, the stuff that they already know how to make. In this case, that means electric cars in Mexico and self-driving vehicles in Michigan. 

Of course, the one big problem that they may not have thought about is that making those cars in Mexico suggests a market nearby, which means electrical outlets for charging. That's hard enough in Mexico; in most of the rest of Central America forget about it. And, importing cars with a 300 mile range into Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona seems braindead to me. Has anybody looked at a map. The distances are way to huge. Still, I guess if they can be shipped cheaply enough or if say China or India were to decide to push EV. Well, who knows?

Kenneth Weene's insight:
Is that my great-great- to the umpteenth power grandmother? Probably not since she was too young to have kids when she apparently fell down that cave shaft some 3.67 million years ago. But this little Australopithecus maiden shows that human evolution goes back even further than we thought and that species of her genus were around even before that famous gal Lucy from Kenya. Anyway, I love physical anthropology.When I go to a natural history museum, that's one of the first departments I look for.

Most hated word in the English language revealed

Most hated word in the English language revealed | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Oxford University Press have undertaken a survey, based on a poll of people in the U.S., U.K. and Canada, to find out what the least favorite word in the English language is.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
What is the most disliked word in the English language? Well, for me it has to be millennial. For two reasons. 

First, I fear the influence of millennialism on our society. I don't want the final days. Hell, I don't even want the walk-up to the final days. I'm perfectly happy leaving the Apocalypse and those who would bring it about someplace in unread fantasy literature. The same for post-apocalyptic movies and novels, although I did enjoy Cormack McCarthy's The Road and some of Doris Lessing's writing. 

Second, I hate the thought of the millennial generation. Seriously, how to make somebody born in the middle of the previous century feel even older and irrelevant. 

Nope let's get that m word out of the dictionary. Meanwhile, what was the most hated word according to the survey. Well, read the article and find out. While you're in a reading mind, why not also hit my website and look for a great book and all the other stuff you can read there.
