'Logistical nightmare': NY Times reveals Secret Service is planning for Trump to be jailed - Raw Story

"behind the scenes, officials from the Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies had held preliminary discussions about the logistics of protecting Trump if he were to be incarcerated. These talks were sparked by prosecutors' request to consider the possibility of jailing Trump for contempt during the trial, even before a verdict is reached.

The Times noted that the Secret Service faces a "logistical nightmare of safely incarcerating" Trump.

"Obviously, it’s uncharted territory," said Martin F. Horn, a former high-ranking official in New York’s state prison system. "Certainly no state prison system has had to deal with this before, and no federal prison has had to either.""

When biking my son to school, there's a road with a pedestrian crossing that we use. Every time, the first 2-3 vehicles won't stop within 10 seconds of us pressing the button.

There are no visual obstructions, and I'm a tall dude wearing a bright orange helmet. Car culture teaches folks to be assholes.

The Three Body Problem series on #Netflix was good.

Another series based on the same book(s) is on Amazon #Prime Video: it's called "Three-Body" and has 30 episodes.

"A couple of years ago I wrote about the report that North Korean IT workers were using fake resumes to get jobs as software developers. Once ensconced, they would leverage their position to launch attacks as well as using their salaries to generate hard cash for their government handlers. But a new research report has shown this threat to be even more pernicious, with North Korean digital animators getting jobs working on major motion pictures that will be broadcast on HBO, Amazon, and other outlets."

"One more note. There’s damning evidence of Trump and his henchmen acting like mob bosses by intimidating anyone who didn’t keep their mouth shut about his affairs.

For example, when Pecker informed Trump in 2018 that he wanted to end their long association, probably because the temperature was getting a bit too hot around the catch and kill stories, Cohen stated that Trump said, “Maybe he gets hit by a truck.”

Lest we dismiss this as just more bravado and locker room talk, a more sinister encounter happened with Stormy Daniels earlier.

According to Daniels, after she decided to tell her story in 2011 to In Touch magazine, an unknown man came up to her and threatened her"

Is your PC having trouble? Your smart TV might be to blame - The Verge

"Priscilla Snow, a sound designer and composer for games, wrote on Cohost that they’d been having trouble with their PC. The “Display Settings” menu didn’t open. The “Task Manager” started hanging. Then things necessary to making the computer work started to fail. Spelunking in hidden comments on Microsoft forums revealed the problem: Snow’s TV.

“I felt like I’d solved a murder.”
Basically, the TV had been generating Universal Plug and Play IDs and had, over the course of several years, convinced Snow’s computer that there were essentially an infinite number of devices on their network"

Opinion | No, abortion laws in Europe do not align with U.S. restrictions - The Washington Post

"The fact is that most European countries are moving to expand access to abortion, not limit it. In the majority of countries, European lawmakers have moved steadily forward for decades on the issue of access to abortion. They have removed bans, increased abortion’s legality and taken steps to ensure laws and policies on abortion are guided by public health evidence and clinical best practices…"

"Republicans Are Suing for the Right To Harass Election Workers
April 22, 2024
You might think that even in today’s highly polarized election environment there would be a bipartisan consensus to protect election workers from intimidation and harassment. If you thought so, you would be wrong. In recent weeks, there have been a series of lawsuits aimed at undoing protections for election workers.

Nevada recently enacted a new Election Worker Protection Law to combat the increasing threats faced by election workers. The law, which passed the Legislature unanimously and was signed by the Republican governor"

"A Nevada federal court has already dismissed the lawsuit in that state. I fully expect the courts in Arizona and Minnesota to follow suit. But the mere fact that these lawsuits have been filed tells us all we need to know about the priorities of the GOP and its right-wing allies this fall.

I have previously warned that right-wing vigilantism is the greatest threat to free and fair elections this November. This includes mass voter challenges, disinformation campaigns aimed at misleading voters and, sadly, targeting election officials and voters for intimidation and harassment."

Amazon.com: More Secrets of Consulting: The Consultant's Tool Kit (Consulting Secrets Book 2) eBook : Weinberg, Gerald: Kindle Store

a review by dg

"On a superficial level, one might say that this book is more about the principles of self-esteem than more "tips and tricks" on giving advice / being a consultant. However, after I thought about this for a while, I would have to agree with Mr. Weinberg that the principles of self-esteem really are the secret to being a good advice giver. This wasn't exactly what I was expecting in this book, but it doesn't diminish the importance or power of the material. Just buy this book and improve your life. I add Mr. Weinberg to a short list of those authors and persons in my life that have made me a better person and provided some direction to the chaos of the universe. That may sound overly dramatic, but for me it's true. Thanks, Gerald!"

New Hampshire’s GOP Is Taking a Stand—Against the Polio Vaccine – Mother Jones

"New Hampshire could soon beat Florida—known for its anti-vaccine Surgeon General—when it comes to loosening vaccine requirements. A first-in-the-nation bill that’s already passed New Hampshire’s state House, sponsored only by Republican legislators, would end the requirement for parents enrolling kids in childcare to provide documentation of polio and measles vaccination. New Hampshire would be the only state in the US to have such a law, although many states allow religious exemptions to vaccine requirements.

Currently, Republicans control New Hampshire’s state House, Senate and governor’s office"

The GOP’s Pro-Russia Caucus Lost. Now Ukraine Has to Win. - The Atlantic

"As Johnson himself recommended, the Biden administration should immediately pressure European allies to release the $300 billion in Russian assets that they jointly hold and send it to Ukraine. There are excellent legal and moral arguments for doing so—the money can legitimately be considered a form of reparations. This shift would also make clear to the Kremlin that it has no path back to what used to be called “normal” relations, and that the price Russia is paying for its colonial war will only continue to grow."

So fungus and/or lichen growing on the outside of Mir and ISS space stations and in the radiation contaminated Ukraine seems like we could grow lichen on Mars and its moons. (Moons might be easier because the atmosphere could be too cold in the mars winter.) and asteroids!

Richard Branson: Trump vowed to destroy 5 people who refused to help him - POLITICO

"Branson highlighted the real estate mogul’s “vindictive streak” as the most frightening thing about this election, warning it “could be so dangerous if he got into the White House.”

“For somebody who is running to be the leader of the free world to be so wrapped up in himself, rather than concerned with global issues, is very worrying,” he wrote, going on to compare his lunch with Trump to dining with Hillary Clinton.

“Here we talked about education reform, the war on drugs, women’s rights, conflicts around the globe and the death penalty. She was a good listener as well as an eloquent speaker,”"
