Magic Clerk Easter Chick

Magician, Comedian, and Actor Michael Carbonaro is the Magic Clerk who amazes some customers when he shows them how the Insta-Chick works. Just add a little water and you’ll have a cute baby chick just in time for Easter. A funny and entertaining clip from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I think the two kids that got the free jar of jelly beans and other stuff will always remember that trip to the store.

Lisbon Town Council To Use New Technology To Silence Citizens: Silence Gun: Strange weapon of the future immediately quiets you, whether you like it or not



By Tecca | Today in Tech – Thu, Mar 1, 2012
  
           This delayed auditory feedback device makes it all but impossible for a human to speak.
Ever since humans first invented guns, they've been inventing new uses for them. Some shoot bullets; others shoot lasers. But a strange and unsettling new gun being developed by Japanese researchers shoots sound waves in an effort to disrupt and silence anyone who dares speak out of turn.
The gun operates based on the concept of delayed auditory feedback. An attached microphone picks up the sound being made by the target and plays it back 0.2 seconds later. The effect is incredibly confusing to the human brain, making it all but impossible to talk or hold a conversation. The device doesn't cause the person it's being used on any physical harm — it simply messes with their head.
When the human brain hears its own speech perfectly in sync during normal speech, it easily processes the input and allows you to largely ignore the sound of your own voice. However, by offsetting the response just a bit, the brain hears your mouth speaking as well as the strange echo effect produced by the gun. This unusual combination is confusing enough to effectively shut down the part of your brain responsible for managing speech, and you fall immediately silent.
The first versions of the weapon — if we can even call it that — were dependent on a separate PC to process the input and relay it back to the speaker. However, the second prototype (pictured above) does away with the need for additional hardware and includes all the necessary processing bits within its casing, making it easily portable.
The developers say the gun could be used for seemingly innocuous purposes, such as enforcing rules requiring library patrons to keep quiet. It could also see action during large meetings when it is important that onlookers not disrupt the speaker; anyone who fancies a noisy outburst would immediately be silenced by the high-tech handheld.
The free speech implications of the speech jammer are somewhat disconcerting: A protestor or speaker at a political rally could be easily silenced just for having unpopular views. Political rallies and other protest gatherings could easily be quieted by the strange gun, should law enforcement or other agencies decide to equip themselves with the technology.

Donald Trump Challenges The President With $5 Million Dollar Offer


ELECTION 2012

Kaboom! Trump drops Obama bombshell

The Donald: 'I have a deal for the president'

 by Bob Unruh










Billionaire Donald Trump today offered Barack Obama a check for $5 million for his choice of charities if he would produce his college and passport records.

In an announcement that had been promoted on social media for days, Trump released the above video with the offer.
“We know very little about our president,” he said. “I have a deal for the president.”
“If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications, and if he gives his passport applications and records, I will give to a charity of his choice – inner city children in Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS research – anything he wants a check immediately for $5 million,” he said.
Trump set a deadline of 5 p.m. on Oct. 31.
The release, he said, “will end the question and indeed the anger of many Americans. They will know something about their president. Their president will become transparent, like other presidents. So all he has to do to get $5 million for a charity or charities of his choice, is get his colleges to immediately give his applications and records and also to release his passport records.”
Trump said, “When he does that to my satisfaction, if it’s complete, this check is delivered immediately. A lot of people will be very, very happy to see this happen. Frankly, it’s a check I very much want to write.”
“Once caveat: the records must be given by Oct. 31 at 5 o’clock in the afternoon. Mr. President, not only will I be happy, and totally satisfied, but the American people will be happy.”

SHOULDA WOULDA COULDA...U NEED TO READ

Too many people put off  something that brings them joy just because they haven't thought  about it, don't have it on their schedule, didn't know it was coming  or are too rigid to depart from their routine.

I got to thinking one day  about all those people on the Titanic who passed up dessert at  dinner that fateful night in an effort to cut back. From then on,  I've tried to be a little more flexible.



How many women out there  will eat at home because their husband didn't suggest going out to  dinner until after something had been thawed? Does the word  'refrigeration' mean nothing to you?



How often have your kids  dropped in to talk and sat in silence while you watched ' Jeopardy '  on television?
 



I cannot count the times I  called my sister and said , 'How about going to lunch in a half  hour?' She would gas up and stammer, 'I can't. I have clothes on the  line. My hair is dirty. I wish I had known yesterday, I had a late  breakfast, It looks like rain' And my personal favorite: 'It's  Monday.' She died a few days ago. We never did have lunch  together.



Because we cram so much  into our lives, we tend to schedule our headaches.. We live on a  sparse diet of promises we make to ourselves when all the conditions  are perfect!
 



We'll go back and visit  the grandparents when we get Steve toilet-trained. We'll entertain  when we replace the living-room carpet. We'll go on a second  honeymoon when we get two more kids out of college.



Life has a way of  accelerating as we get older. The days get shorter, and the list of  promises to ourselves gets longer. One morning, we awaken, and all  we have to show for our lives is a litany of 'I'm going to,' 'I plan  on,' and 'Someday, when things are settled down a bit.'



When anyone calls my  'seize the moment' friend, she is open to adventure and available  for trips. She keeps an open mind on new ideas. Her enthusiasm for  life is contagious. You talk with her for five minutes, and you're  ready to trade your bad feet for a pair of Rollerblades and skip an  elevator for a bungee cord.
 



My lips have not touched  ice cream in 10 years. I love ice cream. It's just that I might as  well apply it directly to my stomach with a spatula and eliminate  the digestive process. The other day, I stopped the car and bought a  triple-Decker. If my car had hit an iceberg on the way home, I would  have died happy.
 



Now....go on and have a  nice day. Do something you WANT to...not something on your SHOULD DO  list. If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you  could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are  you waiting? I had a friend from high school that I was always going  to call and never did. The other day her name was in the obituaries  so we never had that chat.


Make sure you read this to  the end; you will understand why I sent this to you.
 



Have you ever watched kids  playing on a merry go round or listened to the rain lapping on the  ground? Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight or gazed at the  sun into the fading night? Do you run through each day on the fly?  When you ask, 'How are you?' Do you hear the reply?



When the day is done, do  you lie in your bed with the next hundred chores running through  your head? Ever told your child, 'We'll do it tomorrow.' and in your  haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch? Let a good friendship  die? Just call to say 'Hi'?
 



When you worry and hurry  through your day, it is like an unopened gift....Thrown away....  Life is not a race. Take it slower. Hear the music before the song  is over.
 



Show your friends how much  you care. Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND including me  if you consider me a friend. If it comes back to you, it affirms  your circle of friends.



To those I have sent this  to... I cherish our friendship and appreciate all you do. 


Life may not be the party  we hoped for... But while we are here we might as well  dance!

The Power Of Encouragement

Change Your Thinking

It will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking..

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.

His bed was next to the room's only window.


The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..

Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.


The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake

Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.


As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.


Days, weeks and months passed.


One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.


Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.

It faced a blank wall..

The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.


The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, 'Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.'


Epilogue:


There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.

Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.


If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy.


'Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present .'

The origin of this letter is unknown, but it brings good luck to everyone who passes it on.

Do not keep this letter.

I pray you will forward it to all your friends to whom you wish God's blessings

Urine or You're Out - To Pee Or Not To Pee...VERY TRUE!‏

I have a job. 

I work, they pay me. 


I pay my taxes & the government 
Distributes my taxes as it sees fit. 

In order to get that paycheck, in my case, 
I am required to pass a random urine test 
(with which I have no problem).
 


What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes 
To people who don't have to pass a urine test. 

So, here is my question: 
Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check
 
Because I have to pass one to earn it for them? 

Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. 
I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their BUTT
 ----doing drugs while I work. 


Can you imagine how much money each state would save 
If people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? 

I guess we could call the program 
"URINE OR YOU'RE OUT"! 


Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. 
Hope you all will pass it along, though. 
Something has to change in this country - AND SOON! 


P.S. Just a thought, all politicians should have to pass a urine test too!

 oh, and by the way,.. town councilors also!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plans to drug test welfare recipients gain momentum


CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Conservatives who say welfare recipients should have to pass a drug test to receive government assistance have momentum on their side.
The issue has come up in the Republican presidential campaign, with front-runner Mitt Romney saying it’s an “excellent idea.”
Nearly two dozen states are considering plans this session that would make drug testing mandatory for welfare recipients, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. And Wyoming lawmakers advanced such a proposal this week.
Driving the measures is a perception that people on public assistance are misusing the funds and that cutting off their benefits would save money for tight state budgets — even as statistics have largely proved both notions untrue.

Brasscheck TV: US and EU sign ACTA, global internet censorship treaty‏ (ACTA, Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, censorship, eu, European Union, obama)


Lisbon,

Months before websites all over the internet voluntarily went dark
in protest of SOPA, the internet censorship bill which was being
considered by congress, Obama signed onto the Anti-Counterfeiting
Trade Agreement.

He did so way back in October of last year using his claimed
authority to make 'executive agreements', which basically means he
doesn't intend to, or even believe he needs to, get the congress to
ratify this TREATY.

Yesterday the European Union signed onto ACTA without any debate.

ACTA has become a reality far worse for internet freedom than
either SOPA or PIPA ever even threatened to be.

Here's what you really need to know about ACTA...
Goodman Green
- Brasscheck
 Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement
(ACTA) explained




EU signs ACTA, global internet censorship treaty


Rady Ananda
Activist Post

Today, the European Union and 22 member states signed the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced. They have now joined the US and seven other nations that signed the treaty last October.

This signing ceremony merely formalized the EU’s adoption of ACTA last month, during a completely unrelated meeting on agriculture and fisheries, reports TechDirt.

Though initiated by the US, Japan is the official depository of the treaty.

Removal of the Three Strikes clause, in which users accused of three counts of piracy would be barred from the internet, paved the way for the EU to adopt ACTA last month.

Related to ACTA, a chapter in the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) “would have state signatories adopt even more restrictive copyright measures than ACTA,” reports the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Both ACTA and TPP were developed without public input and outside international trade groups, like the World Trade Organization and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

 Leaked cables published by WikiLeaks in 2009 exposed early drafts of ACTA, resulting in a firestorm of controversy. Those cables, coupled with later releases, showed that ACTA negotiations began in 2006 and were controversial even to participating states.  An historical summary of the treaty’s progress through December can be found here.

ACTA Violates Magna Carta and US Constitution

Like PIPA and SOPA, two domestic internet censorship bills that prompted major websites to blacken their name or website in a Jan. 18th protest, ACTA allows accusers of copyright infringement to bypass judicial review.  Lack of “due process” makes these bills and ACTA unconstitutional and violates the Magna Carta, a charter signed in 1215 on which most Western law is based, including the US Constitution.  It is often cited as the most important legal document in the history of democracy.

(The USA PATRIOT Acts, Obama’s assassination program, and the National Defense Authorization Act that allows indefinite detention are among many recent laws passed in the US which directly breach the Magna Carta.)

“The Constitution states only one command twice,” explains Peter Strauss of Cornell University Law School, further elaborating:

The Fifth Amendment says to the federal government that no one shall be ‘deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.’ The Fourteenth Amendment, ratified in 1868, uses the same eleven words, called the Due Process Clause, to describe a legal obligation of all states. These words have as their central promise an assurance that all levels of American government must operate within the law (‘legality’) and provide fair procedures.
Not only due process, but US adoption of ACTA also violates Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, which provides that the president “shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur.”

The Senate never voted on ACTA.

During the Jan. 18 internet blackout, Darrell Issa (R-CA) introduced OPEN, (H.R. 3782, the Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade Act).  Heather Callaghan points out that even though OPEN targets foreign-based websites,

[T]he bill’s wording is wide open to pursue American sites. Just one example: when describing an infringing site, it starts with those ‘that are accessed through a non-domestic domain name,’ but continues in section (8)(A)(ii) for any site that ‘conducts business directed to residents of the United States.’
 
As this slew of internet censorship bills and treaties make their way into law, “the United States fell 27 places on the Reporters Without Borders tenth annual Press Freedom Index of 2011 to 47th overall,” reports Activist Post.

Today’s signatories included the EU, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Last October, Australia, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States signed ACTA.

Though involved in early ACTA negotiations, Switzerland and Mexico have not yet ratified it.  However, “Since the agreement remains open to signature until May 2013, it is possible that other states may make a move to join it as well,” said Maira Sutton of EFF.

Tap on the shoulder

A true story from  the pages of the Manchester Evening Times

Last Wednesday a passenger in  a taxi heading for Salford station
leaned over to ask the driver a question and  gently tapped him on the
shoulder to get his attention.

The driver  screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove
up over the curb and  stopped just inches from a large plate window.

For a few moments  everything was silent in the cab. Then, the shaking
driver said "are you OK? I'm  so sorry, but you scared the daylights
out of me."

The badly shaken  passenger apologized to the driver and said, "I
didn't realize that a mere tap  on the shoulder would startle someone
so badly."

The driver replied,  "No, no, I'm the one who is sorry, it's entirely
my fault. Today is my very  first day driving a cab.

I've been driving a hearse for 25 years."  



 Happy Friday the 13th!

Ole' Prospector

An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio, Texas leading a tired old mule.

The old man headed straight for the only saloon in town, to clear his parched throat.

He walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail.

As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.

The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laugh ed, saying, "Hey old man, can you dance?"

The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No son, I don't dance... never really wanted to"

A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, "Well, you old fool, you're gonna dance now!" and started shooting at the old man's feet.

The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet.

Everybody standing around was laughing..

When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.

The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled 12 gauge shotgun and cocked both hammers.

The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air. The crowd stopped laughing immediately.

The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly.

The silence was deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin 1
2gauge barrels.

The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's hands, as he quietly said;

"Son, have you ever kissed a mule's ass?"

The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No sir... but.... I've always wanted to"



There are a few lessons for all of us here:
*Don't be arrogant.
*Don't waste ammunition. *Whiskey makes you think you're smarter than you are. *Always make sure you know who is in control...*And finally, Don't screw around with old folks; they didn't get old by being stupid....

I just love a story with a happy ending, don't you?

The Year Twenty-Twelve What Does It Mean?

2012: The Year Of The Hand of God In America

As we start a new year some thoughts come to me from something my pastor’s wife said Sunday morning, January 1, 2012. She recently did a study on the number 12 and its significance in Scripture. It reminded me of the deep importance of God in the development of our nation and the importance of God in the coming year. This is what she said:
In the Bible “12″ represents God’s perfect government and Divine authority. To write “12″ in Hebrew two Hebrew letters are used … “yod” which signifies hand or outworking and “beth” which signifies house. “The outworking of the household in harmony under Divine authority.” I am claiming this for each household and our house of worship that we will see God’s authority extended to our territory from our homes and churches.
OH YEAH! AMEN!
Before I started my writing career 18 months ago, I was inspired by a series of documentaries I watched about the founding of our nation and how our founding fathers placed so much importance on Divine Providence. I saw how their faith in God and their devotion to Biblical principles guided them in their pursuit of liberty and freedom for all, not just the wealthy, elite group in which most of them belonged.
Our nation was founded by men who believed in God very strongly and prayed every step of the way; through the years of protesting to King George of England about their grievances; through the horrible years of the Revolutionary War when death, suffering, fear, and want were the order of the day; then through the 11 years it took to actually form a nation, write the Constitution of the United States of America, and have it ratified by the various states.

A lot more reading here.
