“ALVIN DAVIS” for President of the United States of America VOTE” for “ME”

2. Test the Water: Pre-Candidacy Process
Testing the water: pre-candidacy process

“Serious candidates for president must begin preparing for the election years in advance. The first decision potential candidates and their families face is whether or not they are suited for the demands of the office and willing to make the personal sacrifices necessary to win the election. The next step usually involves forming political action committees to broaden a candidate’s visibility, to test the candidate’s appeal nationwide, and to raise money for increasingly expensive campaigns. Candidates also establish exploratory committees whose job it is to 1) seriously consider the candidate’s chances of becoming president, 2) suggest possible campaigns themes and slogans, 3) write speeches and position papers, 4) seek endorsements from powerful individuals and groups, 5) recruit professional and volunteer staff, 6) begin organizing state campaigns in key states, 7) hire pollsters and consultants, and 8) develop media appeals.”

Thomas S. Vontz and William A. Nixon, “Teaching About Presidential Elections,” Indiana University at Bloomington, Center for Social Studies and International Education website, Aug. 2000

I will stand on the issues, and respond to people with question’s.  There is a time when it is needed to shake up America, and Now it will be me!

Am I suited? Who can be true to them self to say they are suited?  It is a HARD job! but I have worked with so many problem of not only life but in Management and how to get something done to inprove things.

Political Action Committees?  No need, the people need to be able to ask any question directly to the president.

Candidates’s Chances?  If I let business tell me what to do then what about the workers? they have no voice?

Write speeches? Talk from the heart not from a writer.

Hire pollster and consultants? did Lincon have this?

“ALVIN DAVIS” as the new President of the United States of America

1. Meet Eligibility Guidelines Set by the US Constitution
Article II of the United States Constitution establishes the Executive Branch of the Government, including the President, Vice-President, and other executive officers. Within Article II, rules are set as to who can become President and how a President is elected:

Article II

Section 1. The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his office during the term of four years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same term, be elected, as follows:

…No person except anatural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time ofthe adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age ofthirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.”

United States Constitution, Sep. 17, 1787

#01:   New Party: The Mixed Party
#02:  Why: because USA is not UNITED
#03:  Education: is worse and going to the bottom of the world
#04:  Health Plans
#05:  Change in the way we thing as American’s
#06:  Tax’s
#07:  State Laws
Ok this is just the first draft, but I will throw my hat in the RING” 100% we need a new “Party” the two old party’s can not get anything done. if I am President I will not belong to any of the DEM’s or the REP’s this is to say I will judge each issue out side of the standard’s that each party is bound and bent on making only for there “PARTY’S” I will not be scared to say “NO”
Every congress person must “VOTE” on each and every issue in “PERSON” that is there “JOB”

Pronunciation is the way a word or a language is spoken, or the manner in which someone utters a word. If one is said to have “correct pronunciation”, then it refers to both within a particular dialect.

A word can be spoken in different ways by various individuals or groups, depending on many factors, such as: the duration of the cultural exposure of their childhood, the location of their current residence, speech or voice disorders,[1] their ethnic group, their social class, or their education.[2]

Where did the Welsh Davis family come from? What is the Welsh Davis family crest and coat of arms? When did the Davis family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Davis family history?

The Welsh Davis surname is a patronymic, meaning son of David. Ultimately derived from the Hebrew name “David,” meaning “beloved,” the name became a popular given name throughout Medieval Europe due to the biblical king David of Israel. The popularity of the name was further increased in Britain due to it being the name of the Patron Saint of Wales. Little is known about Saint David, but he is thought to have been a 6th century monk and bishop. The name came to be used as a patronymic name by the Brythonic people of Wales. One of the most famous bearers of this personal name in Wales was David ap Gryffydd, the last Prince of North Wales, who was executed c. 1276 by King Edward I of England.

Davis Early Origins

The Welsh have an extremely large amount of spelling variations of their native surnames to their credit. It was up to the priest or the scribe taking the official records to determine how the spoken name was to be made literal. As time progressed, the old Brythonic names of Wales were recorded in English, which was especially problematic since the English language had extreme difficulty recording the highly inflected sounds of Cymraeg. Spelling variations were, however, also carried out according to an individual’s design: a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even patriotic affiliations could be indicated by spelling variations of one’s name. The spelling variations of the name Davis have included Davies, Davis, Divis and others.

First found in Flintshire (Welsh: Sir y Fflint), a historic county, created after the defeat of the Welsh Kingdom of Gwynedd in 1284, and located in north-east Wales, where the Davis family held a family seat from very ancient times. They were descended from Cynrig Efell, Lord of Eglwysegle, the twin son of Madog ab Maredadd, the great grandson of Bleddyn ap Cynvin, Prince of Powys, head of the honorable and worthy third Royal Tribe of Wales, who was traitorously murdered in 1073 by the men of Ystrad Tywi, after he had governed all Wales for 13 years. Directly descended from this line was John ap Davydd (John Davies of Gwasanau in the county of Flint).

Motto

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto. Motto: Heb Dhuw heb ddym, Dhuw a digon Motto Translation: Without God without anything, God is enough.

Davis is a fresh way to say David. Some sources define it as “son of David,” but we see it as a surname spin on the original. While David is an everyman name, Davis has some creative edge — and still gets you to the classic guy nickname Dave.

Davis can be a good way to name a boy after grandpa David; Davies, Davison, or Davidson will also do the trick.

Show Me Solar: Missouri’s Opportunity for Solar Power

 

What can solar power do for a single state? How about 21% of its energy, $14 billion in economic activity, and over 150,000 jobs. At a discount to existing electricity costs. Without subsidies.

That’s what solar power can do for Missouri, but the state’s utilities may be about to pull the plug on local solar power.

It started with a renewable energy standard, passed overwhelmingly in 2008, requiring the state’s utilities to get 15% of their electricity from renewable energy resources, and primarily from local sources. But attacks on the law started three years ago, when the Republican-controlled state legislature undermined the ‘buy local’ provision.

Fortunately, this didn’t stop local solar, helped along by a generous state rebate. Starting in 2011, the falling cost of solar panels led to a surge in installations. By the end of the year, the cumulative solar capacity (estimated at 120 megawatts) will have added $415 million to the state economy and nearly 4,000 jobs.

missouri installed solar capacity and forecast

But utilities abruptly pulled the plug on solar in 2013. In the middle of the legislative session where a rebate phase-out was being carefully crafted, and despite assurances that they were nowhere near the cost cap on the solar rebate program, the state’s utilities announced the programs were allegedly running out of money. No independent analysis has verified the utilities’ claims.

Advocates reached a settlement with the utilities late in 2013 to pay out the remaining rebate funds, but efforts to re-open the compromise on a reduced solar rebate were sabotaged by the same utilities late in the 2014 legislative session. Now a lawsuit may be the only hope to avoid a big drop on the “solar coaster” when rebate payments stop.

Two years from now, this “bust” cycle may be just a bad memory, however. Electricity prices have been rising by 5% per year over the past 5 years. The maturing solar industry has been relentlessly driving costs down, and even without the rebate, by 2016 residential and commercial solar installations will able to compete with utility-provided electricity prices using just the 30% federal tax credit.

The smart policy would have been a “glide path” away from state incentives, but it may be that utilities just wanted to buy a couple years respite from competition.

Secrets, lies and Snowden’s email: why I was forced to shut down Lavabit!!!!! “WOW”

67363-prism6

 

 

My legal saga started last summer with a knock at the door, behind which stood two federal agents ready to to serve me with a court order requiring the installation of surveillance equipment on my company’s network.

My company, Lavabit, provided email services to 410,000 people – including Edward Snowden, according to news reports – and thrived by offering features specifically designed to protect the privacy and security of its customers. I had no choice but to consent to the installation of their device, which would hand the US government access to all of the messages – to and from all of my customers – as they travelled between their email accounts other providers on the Internet.

But that wasn’t enough. The federal agents then claimed that their court order required me to surrender my company’s private encryption keys, and I balked. What they said they needed were customer passwords – which were sent securely – so that they could access the plain-text versions of messages from customers using my company’s encrypted storage feature. (The government would later claim they only made this demand because of my “noncompliance”.)

Bothered by what the agents were saying, I informed them that I would first need to read the order they had just delivered – and then consult with an attorney. The feds seemed surprised by my hesitation.

What ensued was a flurry of legal proceedings that would last 38 days, ending not only my startup but also destroying, bit by bit, the very principle upon which I founded it – that we all have a right to personal privacy.

In the first two weeks, I was served legal papers a total of seven times and was in contact with the FBI every other day. (This was the period a prosecutor would later characterize as my “period of silence”.) It took a week for me to identify an attorney who could adequately represent me, given the complex technological and legal issues involved – and we were in contact for less than a day when agents served me with a summons ordering me to appear in a Virginia courtroom, over 1,000 miles from my home. Two days later, I was served the first subpoena for the encryption keys.

With such short notice, my first attorney was unable to appear alongside me in court. Because the whole case was under seal, I couldn’t even admit to anyone who wasn’t an attorney that I needed a lawyer, let alone why. In the days before my appearance, I would spend hours repeating the facts of the case to a dozen attorneys, as I sought someone else that was qualified to represent me. I also discovered that as a third party in a federal criminal indictment, I had no right to counsel. After all, only my property was in jeopardy – not my liberty. Finally, I was forced to choose between appearing alone or facing a bench warrant for my arrest.

In Virginia, the government replaced its encryption key subpoena with a search warrant and a new court date. I retained a small, local law firm before I went back to my home state, which was then forced to assemble a legal strategy and file briefs in just a few short days. The court barred them from consulting outside experts about either the statutes or the technology involved in the case. The court didn’t even deliver transcripts of my first appearance to my own lawyers for two months, and forced them to proceed without access to the information they needed.

Then, a federal judge entered an order of contempt against me – without even so much as a hearing.

But the judge created a loophole: without a hearing, I was never given the opportunity to object, let alone make any any substantive defense, to the contempt change. Without any objection (because I wasn’t allowed a hearing), the appellate court waived consideration of the substantive questions my case raised – and upheld the contempt charge, on the grounds that I hadn’t disputed it in court. Since the US supreme court traditionally declines to review decided on wholly procedural grounds, I will be permanently denied justice.

In the meantime, I had a hard decision to make. I had not devoted 10 years of my life to building Lavabit, only to become complicit in a plan which I felt would have involved the wholesale violation of my customers’ right to privacy. Thus with no alternative, the decision was obvious: I had to shut down my company.

The largest technological question we raised in our appeal (which the courts refused to consider) was what constitutes a “search”, i.e., whether law enforcement can demand the encryption keys of a business and use those keys to inspect the private communications of every customer, even when the court has only authorized them to access information belonging to specific targets.

The problem here is technological: until any communication has been decrypted and the contents parsed, it is currently impossible for a surveillance device to determine which network connections belong to any given suspect. The government argued that, since the “inspection” of the data was to be carried out by a machine, they were exempt from the normal search-and-seizure protections of the Fourth Amendment.

More importantly for my case, the prosecution also argued that my users had no expectation of privacy, even though the service I provided – encryption – is designed for users’ privacy.

If my experience serves any purpose, it is to illustrate what most already know: courts must not be allowed to consider matters of great importance under the shroud of secrecy, lest we find ourselves summarily deprived of meaningful due process. If we allow our government to continue operating in secret, it is only a matter of time before you or a loved one find yourself in a position like I did – standing in a secret courtroom, alone, and without any of the meaningful protections that were always supposed to be the people’s defense against an abuse of the state’s power.

Yahoo adds more security to thwart surveillance!! (CAN YOU BELIEVE??) me too “NO”

67363-prism6

 

Yahoo has added more layers of security in its effort to shield people’s online lives from government spying and other snooping.

The measures announced Wednesday include the completion of a system that encrypts all information being transmitted from one Yahoo data center to another. The technology is designed to make the emails and other digital information flowing through data centers indecipherable to outsiders.

Search requests made from Yahoo’s home page are also now automatically encrypted, and the Sunnyvale, Calif., company is promising to make it more difficult for unauthorized intruders to hack into other services, including video chats, within the next few months. Yahoo strengthened the security of its email in January.

“Whether or not our users understand it, I feel it’s our responsibility to keep them safe,” Alex Stamos, Yahoo’s recently hired chief information of security, told a small group of reporters.

Stamos, a former security consultant, joined Yahoo Inc. less than a month ago as part of the company’s anti-snooping crusade.

Yahoo and other major technology companies such as Google Inc. and Microsoft Crop. have made online security a top priority during the last 10 months amid a series of revelations about U.S. government programs that have vacuumed up personal information about millions of Web surfers in an effort to thwart terrorism. The wide-ranging surveillance has been outlined in documents leaked to the media by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.

The technology industry’s indignant response has been driven by financial self-interest as well as an aversion to government prying. Most Internet services make money from ads that could be more difficult to sell if spying fears cause their audiences to shrink.

Yahoo, which has more than 800 million worldwide users, vowed late last year to encrypt its data centers by March 31 after reports that the U.S. government had been secretly infiltrating the lines that transfer information overseas.

Yahoo still lags behind Google’s encryption efforts. In an interview Wednesday, Stamos said Yahoo hasn’t been able to move as fast as it wants because many of its services rely on content and ads provided by thousands of other companies, including some that aren’t convinced that they need to encrypt.

For that reason, Yahoo’s widely used news, sports and finance sections still aren’t automatically encrypted. Visitors to those services can trigger an encrypted service by typing in “https” before the website’s address. Yahoo is confident that it will be able to persuade its content and advertising partners to take the steps needed to enable automatic encryption of those services later this year.

“Some partners already understand this is the way the wind is blowing,” Stamos said. “We are moving to a world where all content is encrypted all the time.”

Edward Snowden is a “HERO” the only one to tell the truth!!!!!

NSA leaker Edward Snowden asks Putin how Russia spies on Russians

MOSCOW – National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden asked Russian President Vladimir Putin Thursday whether his nation’s spy agencies sweep up data en-masse from Russian citizens, the way his former employer has done in the United States.

Russia granted Snowden asylum last year, and he still lives somewhere in the country. He was not in the Moscow television studio Thursday to ask the question in person, but recorded it earlier and sent it to the broadcaster online using “secured” technology, according to a Russian lawyer who has represented him.

Putin said that Russian special services do tap communications in their fight against terrorism, but don’t do it on such a massive scale as the U.S.

“We can talk as professionals,” Putin, a 16-year KGB veteran and the former chief of Russia’s main espionage agency, toldSnowden. “We have very strict rules about the use of special equipment and methods by the secret services listening into conversations, intercepting internet communications. It requires a court’s permission for us tomonitor individuals, so there is no mass monitoring and the law would notpermit it.” 

The Russian leader claimed his nation’s spy agencies “do not have the money to do so like the U.S. does.”

It was not the first time Putin suggested he was envious of the U.S. spy machine’s capabilities. He said in December 2013 that while the NSA program revealed by Snowden wasn’t “a cause for joy, it’s not a cause for repentance either” because it was necessary to fight terrorism.

He argued that it was necessary to monitor large numbers of people to expose terrorist contacts, but said “on a political level, it’s necessary to limit the appetite of special services with certain rules.”

Putin added that the efficiency of the effort — and its damage to privacy — was limited by the sheer inability to process such a huge amount of data.

In an off the cuff remark, Putin said he envied Mr. Obama for the U.S. spy program.

“How do I feel about Obama after Snowden’s revelations? I envy him, because he can get away with it,” said the Russian leader before going on to defend espionage in general as “one of the oldest professions in the world, just like some other well-known professions — we won’t mention them here.”

House Passes Curbs on NSA Surveillance (Don’t you believe this)!!!!!! more lies!!!

House Passes Curbs on NSA Surveillance

 

The House on Thursday passed legislation to end the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of American phone records, the first legislative response to the disclosures by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

Although the compromise measure was significantly “watered down,” in the words of Democrat Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, it passed by a vote of 303 to 120, with 9 members not voting.

“We must not let the perfect be the enemy of the good,” Schakowsky, an intelligence committee member, said in summing up the feelings of many Republicans and Democrats who voted for the measure but wanted tougher provisions. Dropped from the bill was a requirement for an independent public advocate on the secret intelligence court that oversees the NSA.

The USA Freedom Act would codify a proposal made in January by President Barack Obama, who said he wanted to end the NSA’s practice of collecting the “to and from” records of nearly every American landline telephone call under a program that searched the data for connections to terrorist plots abroad.

The bill doesn’t ask the phone companies to hold records for any longer than they already do, which varies by carrier. The bill would give the NSA the authority to request certain records from the companies to search them in terrorism investigations in response to a judicial order. The phone program was revealed last year by Snowden, who used his job as a computer network administrator to remove tens of thousands of secret documents from an NSA facility in Hawaii.

The measure now heads to the Senate. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the chairwoman of the intelligence committee, has said she is willing to go along with a similar idea.

NSA officials were pleased with the bill because under the existing program, they did not have access to many mobile phone records. Under the new arrangement, they will, officials say.

“I believe this is a workable compromise that protects the core function of a counter terrorism program we know has saved lives around the world,” said Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., the House Intelligence Committee chairman.

Privacy and civil liberties activists denounced the measure, saying it had been “gutted” to win agreement from lawmakers such as Rogers who supported the NSA phone records program.

“This legislation was designed to prohibit bulk collection, but has been made so weak that it fails to adequately protect against mass, untargeted collection of Americans’ private information,” Nuala O’Connor, president and CEO of the Center for Democracy and Technology, said in a statement.

Technology companies such as Google and Facebook also withdrew their support, saying they were concerned about language they fear could allow bulk collection of Internet data. Proponents say that concern is misplaced.

“Those who say this bill will legalize bulk collection are wrong,” said Rep. C. A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger, the ranking Democrat on the Intelligence Committee. “They are trying to scare you by making you think there are monsters under the bed.”

The White House endorsed the measure.

“The bill’s significant reforms would provide the public greater confidence in our programs and the checks and balances in the system,” the Office of Management and Budget said in a statement Wednesday.

West African Ebola outbreak caused by new strain of disease: And spreading all over the World

67363-prism6(Reuters) – An Ebola outbreak blamed for 135 deaths in West Africa in the past month was not imported from Central Africa but caused by a new strain of the disease, a study in a U.S. medical journal said, raising the specter of further regional epidemics.

The spread of Ebola from a remote corner of Guinea to the capital and into neighboring Liberia, the first deadly outbreak reported in West Africa, has caused panic across a region struggling with weak healthcare systems and porous borders.

Ebola is endemic to Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, South Sudan and Gabon, and scientists initially believed that Central Africa’s Zaire strain of the virus was responsible for the outbreak.

Using analysis of blood samples from infected patients, however, researchers determined that while the Guinean form of the Ebola virus (EBOV) showed a 97 percent similarity to the Zaire strain, the disease was not introduced from Central Africa.

“This study demonstrates the emergence of a new EBOV strain in Guinea,” wrote the group of more than 30 doctors and scientists, who published their preliminary findings on the website of the New England Journal of Medicine.

There is no vaccine or cure for Ebola – a hemorrhagic fever with a fatality rate of up to 90 percent that causes symptoms ranging from flu-like pains to internal and external bleeding caused by kidney and liver failure. Its suspected origin is forest bats and it can be transmitted between humans by touching victims or through bodily fluids.

“It is possible that EBOV has circulated undetected in this region for some time. The emergence of the virus in Guinea highlights the risk of EBOV outbreaks in the whole West African subregion,” the report continued.

INDIGENOUS

Of the 197 clinical cases of Ebola declared in Guinea, 122 have died including several health workers, according to the World Health Organisation’s latest update, which cited Guinean health ministry figures. Sixteen of those died in the capital Conakry.

Guinea’s government had previously placed the death toll at 106. The health ministry said on Tuesday that the number of new cases had fallen rapidly and the outbreak was nearly under control.

A senior health ministry official told Reuters on Thursday the government planned to stop publicly releasing the death toll to avoid causing unnecessary panic.

Liberia’s health ministry has recorded at least 13 deaths from 26 confirmed and suspected cases of Ebola.

The WHO said earlier this month it would take two to four months to contain the outbreak, which it said had been one of the most challenging it had ever faced.

“What is clear to us from the study is that the virus wasn’t brought in from the outside, that it is indigenous,” said Tarik Jasarevic, a spokesman for the WHO, which was not involved in authoring the study.

“It means there were possibly outbreaks in the past that were just not detected,” he said.

Samples tested in Ghana and Sierra Leone have been negative so far. And the WHO tweeted on Thursday that the clinical samples of six suspected cases in Mali also tested negative for Ebola.

In an effort to contain the epidemic, countries in the region have imposed restrictions ranging from basic health checks at airports to Senegal’s decision to completely shut its land border with Guinea.

Gambia earlier this month banned Banjul-bound aircraft from picking up passengers in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.alvin-in-stripes.jpg

LONDON (AP) — Two respiratory viruses in different parts of the world have captured the attention of global health officials — a novel coronavirus in the Middle East and a new bird flu spreading in China.

Last week, the coronavirus related to SARS spread to France, where one patient who probably caught the disease in Dubai infected his hospital roommate. Officials are now trying to track down everyone who went on a tour group holiday to Dubai with the first patient as well as all contacts of the second patient. Since it was first spotted last year, the new coronavirus has infected 34 people, killing 18 of them. Nearly all had some connection to the Middle East.

The World Health Organization, however, says there is no reason to think the virus is restricted to the Middle East and has advised health officials worldwide to closely monitor any unusual respiratory cases.

At the same time, a new bird flu strain, H7N9, has been infecting people in China since at least March, causing 32 deaths out of 131 known cases.

WHO, which is closely monitoring the viruses, says both have the potential to cause a pandemic — a global epidemic — if they evolve into a form easily spread between people. Here’s a crash course in what we know so far about them:

Q: How are humans getting infected by the new coronavirus?

A: Scientists don’t exactly know. There is some suggestion the disease is jumping directly from animals like camels or goats to humans, but officials are also considering other sources, like a common environmental exposure. The new coronavirus is most closely related to a bat virus, but it’s possible that bats are transmitting the disease via another source before humans catch it.

Q: Can the new coronavirus be spread from human to human?

A: In some circumstances, yes. There have been clusters of the disease in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Britain and now France, where the virus has spread from person-to-person. Most of those infected were in very close contact, such as people taking care of a sick family member or health workers treating patients. There is no evidence the virus is spreading easily between people and all cases of human-to-human transmission have been limited so far.

Q: How are people catching the bird flu H7N9?

A: Some studies suggest the new bird flu is jumping directly to people from poultry at live bird markets. Cases have slowed down since Chinese authorities began shutting down such markets. But it’s unclear exactly what kind of exposure is needed for humans to catch the virus and very few animals have tested positive for it. Unlike the last bird flu strain to cause global concern, H5N1, the new strain doesn’t appear to make birds sick and may be spreading silently in poultry populations.

Q: What precautions can people take against these new viruses?

A: WHO is not advising people to avoid traveling to the Middle East or China but is urging people to practice good personal hygiene like regular hand-washing. “Until we know how and where humans are contracting these two diseases, we cannot control them,” said Gregory Hartl, WHO spokesman.

Q: Which virus should we be more worried about?

A: It’s impossible to know. “We really don’t want to play the game of predicting which virus will be more deadly than the other,” Hartl said. At the moment, both are worrisome since so little is known about how they are infecting humans and both appear to cause severe disease. “Any virus that has the ability to develop the capacity to spread from human to human is of great concern to WHO,” he said.

Can an iPad Replace a Laptop? (2014 edition) “WELL”?? “YES” or “NO”????

Can an iPad Replace a Laptop? (2014 edition)

It’s easy to forget now, but when the first iPad was announced in early 2010, there was much uncertaintly surrounding Apple’s new product. One of the big questions was whether it served as a laptop replacement.

I have an iPhone, and I have a laptop – why do I need something in between?

Now that we’ve all had well over a year with the iPad (and a growing pool of other tablets), it’s time to revisit this. Has anything changed?

One thing we know is that it didn’t take long for consumers to warm up to the idea of owning a tablet. Apple sold 14.8 million of them in 2010, and is targeting 40 million iPads sold in 2011. Customers have obviously found uses.

Casual Use

We know that tablets are great for casual computing tasks. Simple functions that are mildly enjoyable on a notebook or PC become comfortable and personal on a tablet.

Advertisement:

Scanning news feeds, browsing the web, emailing, reading an eBook, connecting on Facebook, tweeting… for these casual tasks, there’s nothing quite like kicking back on the couch with iPad in hand.

 

The iPad is also quickly becoming a viable gaming console. While not everyone likes controlling a console-style game with HUD touchscreen controls, people are getting used to it. Standout titles like Infinity Blade, 9mm (and the other ten billion Gameloft console clones), and Dead Space are showing that the iPad can do a lot more than play casual classics like Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies.

So at this point, what reasons do you have to own a laptop in addition to (or instead of) a tablet?

When the iPad launched, the saying went that “it’s for content consumption,” and that PC’s and notebooks were for “content creation.” As many strides as the iPad has made, our examination found that the future hasn’t arrived as quickly as some thought it would.

Professional Use

While simple content creation is becoming increasingly possible on the iPad, the same can’t be said for advanced creation.

Sure, you hear the occasional story of an artist creating their latest track entirely on an iPad. Music videos have been shot on iPhones and edited on iPads. But those are just headline bait – and far from the norm at this point.

Writers

For writers, a tablet simply will not do.

Sure, you can use a bluetooth keyboard with the iPad to type more easily, but where are you typing? If you can afford to do all of your writing in the iWork Pages app, then perhaps the iPad could work. But once you add a second accessory to the mix, wouldn’t a laptop be easier?

For bloggers (or other writers who use a web-based portal for submitting work), sites like WordPress aren’t optimized when opened on a tablet. A great iOS app called Blogsy duplicates much of the full WordPress functionality, but it’s still no substitute for direct input on the full website. The iPad, at this point, is nothing more than a novel backup tool for most pro writers.

 

Graphic Artists/Designers

When it comes to professional-level photo editing, a high-end notebook is a Harvard graduate, and the iPad is a first-grader. A touch-screen interface has the potential to (one day) deliver advanced photo editing and graphic design with a level of personal connection that desktops and laptops can’t achieve. But that’s still far off in the future.

Probably the most advanced photo-tweaking app on iOS, Photoforge 2, doesn’t even remotely hold a candle to Photoshop Elements (which itself is a watered-down consumer version of professional Photoshop). While the app adds support for “layers,” this is a far cry from the intuitive handling of layers that Photoshop users are accustomed to. Being able to select portions of a photo is essential when dealing with layers, and this app makes it awkward and cumbersome. It’s a promising start, but not anything any professional (in his right mind) would even consider using.

Filmmakers/Video Editors

The iPad fares much better for video editing than it does for photo editing, as the excellent iOS port of iMovie is more intuitive than most PC video editing programs. But when you’re talking about advanced editing, there’s still no replacement for a good laptop (particularly a MacBook with Final Cut Pro 7 installed).

 

Aside from a watered-down feature set, probably the biggest obstacle to pro video editing on the iPad is the importing of video content. If any professional tried to take video with the iPad 2′s camera, he should be sent to Bellevue. Sure, you can sync media via a camera connection kit, but not all cameras are compatible.

Musicians/Sound Engineers

Garage Band for iPad is a great addition, but – again – it’s miles away from replacing expensive professional-level apps like Pro Tools, Cubease, or Apple’s Logic Studio. It’s arguable whether it can replace Garage Band on a MacBook for casual users, but it doesn’t come close to working for more high-end musical needs.

Other Professionals

If you remove niche creative professionals from the equation, the areas that you’re left with are where the iPad is rapidly making a splash. Many pros can, believe it or not, possibly find a tablet to be more advantageous than a laptop.

Office employees who need to roam from department-to-department while performing various tasks could find a tablet to fit the bill. This area has the potential to really blow up in the next few years as mid-grade tablet prices come down, and specific software for these needs becomes more prevalent.

Medical professionals could also find tablets to be a big plus. Nurses can use an iPad to check in a patient and log preliminary tests. Doctors could check patient records and examine X-rays using slates.

 

Retail or customer service agents, delivery people, and real estate agents… these are all examples of other fields that can potentially use a tablet’s portability and touchscreen interface over a full notebook.

These fields have the most potential for professional tablet use, but even they are slow to make the transition.

Tablets’ Biggest Limits

Storage space is one of the biggest current limitations of tablets. If we’re talking about iPads, you’re looking at 64GB tops. This could work for casual users, but for more advanced needs it’s out of the question. Some people would run out of space in a few days, using it as their primary device.

The lack of a physical keyboard can create problems for various activities. Bluetooth keyboards and a variety of other creative accessories and add-ons can be used, but when carrying a second piece of hardware becomes necessary to get full functionality, how advantageous is it to have a tablet?

Additionally, only certain video formats are going to be supported on an iPad. If dealing with a variety of video formats is something you do (professionally or personally) – you can’t just sit back and hope that it will be in a format supported by your tablet. You need a notebook.

Software compatibility is another huge thorn in the side of tablets. After hearing “there’s an app for that” so many times, it’s easy to forget that most of those apps are relatively simple, and meant for casual activities.

Can it Replace My Laptop?

 

Whether you can replace your laptop with an iPad is going to depend on what your needs are. In early 2010, casual computer users could arguably replace a laptop with an iPad. Now it’s a no-brainer. When it comes to content consumption, a tablet is lighter, more portable, more comfortable, and more personal.

If part of your life involves creating professional-level content, tablets still have a long way to go before becoming your primary device. They don’t qualify now, and they won’t next year. Customers aren’t used to spending more than $10 for most tablet apps, so those consumer expectations could slow the march in this direction too.

The answer, therefore, hasn’t changed too much in a year. Tablets are moving in a “primary computing” direction, but they aren’t exactly sprinting. Maybe we’ll check back next year to see if the “tablets are for content consumption, notebooks are for content creation” cliche has changed. Right now it’s as true as ever.

Have any of you traded in your laptop and gone the “all tablet” route? If so, have you run into any roadblocks, or is it smooth sailing? Do let us know down below.

Climate change deniers for $400: This orange game-show staple recently tainted your harmless sick-day TV-watching by spouting dreck on Twitter. (Who is Pat Sajak? Ding ding ding!)

Making even Conan Alex Trebek look like a bastion of reason, the Wheel of Fortune host tweeted this on Monday:

I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.


Pat Sajak (@patsajak) May 20, 2014

After a busy day brokering vowels, Sajak likes to kick back and make some 140-character jabs at environmentalists, proving that no, he’s not smarter than a fifth grader:

My interest in Al Gore’s pronouncements could fit into a gnat’s navel & still leave room for a Liberal’s sense of humor.

Nuclear Hotseat website hacked!! Plea for support from Libbe Halevey “SEE” USA SCARED!!!!

The strange case of Dr Chris Busby and Britain’s nuclear lobby manipulating the internet – The Conservative and Liberal Party’s nuclear dreams

arclight-SmPosted by arclight2011part2
posted to nuclear-news.net
help with headline by Sandi Keane ;)

Dr Chris Busby has website hacked for second time in a week!!

The reason for this is that the Sunday Mirror, a major UK based tabloid has published the story of the plight of the UK nuclear test veterans and their children,under the title;
12 years from out first campaign, the legacy that shames the UK
Exclusive to the Sunday Mirror
Authored by Susie Bonaface
5 April 2014
Nuke vets: the new generation
Introduction by Arclight2011part2
The article describes problems with the Genetic damage being passed on to the children of the veterans and how the UK government is trying to stop the case using Tempora and the illegal UK terror laws. e
The article was not put on the Internet and can only be read in paper form just as local newspapers cannot put stories of the children of Chernobyl coming to the UK for recuperation (the UK is the only country in Europe to recently start charging Chernobyl childrens charities for visas) as reported on nuclear-news.net recently [ Arclights note that the article in question are not functioning for some reason on nuclear news blog but you can get there by clicking here; http://nuclear-news.net/?s=children+of+chernobyl ). (Correction – The Sunday Mirror has now posted it on the web)
There is obviously some strong arm tactics being used on the press in the UK to stop them putting nuclear related stories of any sort on the Internet. So well done to the Sunday Mirror staff and editors.
Here is an extract of the article and here is the full article;
http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/nuclear-test-veterans-scandal-continues-3380063
No let up from radiation fears.
There is no way to prove that radiation caused a specific birth defect. But it is well known that radiation causes mutations and that has been proven in New Zealand.Nuclear veterans have three times as much genetic damage as survivors of Chernobyl.
The British Government has refused requests to carry out the same genetic tests research on out own veterans.
Professor Chris Busby did his statistical survey of the vets and their descendent’s in 2007. It found that children of the vets were 10 times more likely to get birth defects and five times more likely to die as infants.
He reveals: “ The main thing is that the grandchildren are suffering at almost the same rate as the as the children of the veterans. In normal genetics with each generation the effects., with each generation the effects would be less as new DNA is added to the family line. But with radiation exposure a kind of instability is passed down- like an alarming message in a bottle passed from mother to child. It tells the child to assemble the genes randomly in all directions, so you get many children with strange deformities. “ The genes do it in order to evolve around the radiation.” “But it is terrible that women have this fear hanging over their heads because of what happened to their fathers. And yet there is no concessions from the Government or military that it happened at all”
The article then goes on to describe the horrifying situation that Shirley Denson finds herself in as a daughter of a Test veteran. I will post this up in its entirety as the Sunday Mirror probably has been warned away from doing that under national security terms now in force in the UK. (Picture by Roy Fisher on the Sunday Mirror staff)
Dr Chris busby had his website hacked again this morning in line with the article coming out. This is to stop people reading his on-line report from 2007. Which I have a paper copy of in front of me.
Dr Busby wrote this article in Germany when he had his position there but owing to pressure from German nuclear lobby he lost that position.
His report which will be posted on-line here at nuclear-news.net as a “mirror” in case of him being attacked by GCHQ and specifically Theresa May who must have signed off on the cyber attack to allow the UK military intelligence services to behave in such a way.
Do you think Theresa May looks guilty here? (click on link)
The list of reported ailments is as follows;

Increased risk of miscarriage

Increased risk of stillbirths

Increased risk of infant mortality

Increased risk of congenital illness (mutations)

Dr busby connects Uranium as a possible trigger for this damage (Uranium is a beta emitter that is ignored by the Environment Agency in the UK because it gives a low”dose”). This evidence would bring the claims of the IAEA, ICRP and UNSCEAR into disrepute and open the flood gates of litigation against the nuclear industry worldwide in respect of the victims of Kazakhstan (Russian testing), Chernobyl, 3 Mile Island, Fukushima (Japan) and many others including the nuclear test veterans of course.
Here is a quote from the original report;

“The finding that the levels of congenital disease do not taper down with generation doe suggest a genomic rather than (or addition to) a heritable genetic mechanism.”

General manipulation on the internet is as follows;
It might be worth mentioning the USA cyber actions against Dr Busby as epitomised by the likes of Roger Helbig (who fronts for the Yahoo nuclear lobby forums – Google his name and you will see that he and other colleagues are regularly attacking Dr Busby and other journalists, Independent scientists, universities and bloggers). A full description of all the attacks on anti nuclear proponents would be too long for this article but i will show one example below.
Major media outlets are targeted by the likes of Ashursts Australia to stop this type of information getting out. Though Ashursts were eventually very kind to Christina Mac Phearson (a dear sweet 70 plus year old Australian blogger who is my blog partner and was chosen by Palladin Mining for “special attention”).
Here is my personal plea to the public to support the British Nuclear Test veterans

Nuclear Hotseat website hacked!! Plea for support from Libbe Halevey

6 April 2014

ATTENTION: Saturday, April 5, 2014 – Nuclear Hotseat website has been taken down by a malware attack. Episodes can be accessed through iTunes under Podcasts, search Nuclear Hotseat. This problem will not be fixed until Monday at the earliest, as the level of attack requires specialists at the top level of my server. This was no amateur.

According to my server, all content is backed up every 24 hours, so we should be able to restore. Not to worry. It’s always nice to know that one’s work is being noticed and obviously, I’m having an impact.


 

One more thing: On Facebook, I post Nuclear Hotseat based on searching certain key words – nuke, nuclear, etc. I put in the word and a whole series of connections show up. I click at the bottom of that insert screen on the word I’ve posted and the list of names becomes stationary and I can tool through them to post – arduous, but not impossible.

NOW, since the attack on the Nuclear Hotseat website, Facebook will no longer allow me to search in this way. Instead, it gives me a list of links to INTERNET links, not Facebook links. Anyone know a way out of this one?

Please share this info widely. I’m still on limited wifi access and unable to get this out.

 

Libbe HaLevy‘s Nuclear Hotseat Website (nuclearhotseat.com) has been hacked, but you can download and listen to the Japanese version of Episode 145 here for the time being:

http://japandailypress.com/government-team-keeps-high-radiation-data-on-three-fukushima-municipalities-from-the-public-2646381/

Despite people’s clamor for transparency in radiation levels found in the prefecture of Fukushima, a Cabinet office team has delayed releasing the results of its latest measurement of radiation in three municipalities in the region. The government has postponed making the results public as they seek to recalculate the information and release a much lower level findings.

While the three municipalities in question currently have an active evacuation order, the order might be lifted soon. As such, the government has begun taking radiation levels in the area to support the lifting. But a source, speaking to the Mainichi newspaper, said that tests yielded results that are higher than expected, which pushed the Cabinet Office team to withhold the data temporarily as it might discourage residents from going back.

Documents from November last year, which detail the radiation measurements and date of release, were never made public. They indicated the measurements taken by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency and the National Institute of Radiological Sciences from the city of Tamura’s Miyakoji district, the village of Kawauchi and the village of Iitate. New dosimeters, left indoors and outdoors at houses, buildings, farms and wilderness areas, were used to take the radiation levels. As most of the measurements were done on an aerial level, the Cabinet Office wanted to compare results from that with those taken on the ground to come up with radiation estimates by job type. This is with the government’s assumption that the residents would be spending eight hours outdoors, and sixteen hours indoors daily.

Previous levels were measured using old dosimeters given by the Fukushima prefecture to its residents, which showed much lower levels. However, the recent ones taken were significantly higher than expected. While expectations were at 1 to 2 millisieverts a day, data showed the levels to be at 2.6 to 6.6 millisieverts. As the team realize that the results would “have a huge impact” which will “need to be explained to local communities,” it was decided to defer releasing the results. The JAEA and NIRS recalculated results by changing their initial assumption that people would be working outdoors for a shorter period, such as a farmer who will spend only six hours outdoors. The new results were submitted to the Cabinet Office team, which they planned to release later this month to the three municipalities.

Atsuo Tamura from the Cabinet Office team confirmed the recalculation and unreleased documents, but denied covering up anything. He said, “We did not hold the results back because they were too high. We did so because it was necessary to look into whether the assumptions for residents’ lifestyle patterns matched reality.” But a professor of radiation and hygiene from the Dokkyo Medical University, Shinzo Kimura, is not convinced. “The assumption of eight hours a day outside and 16 hours inside is commonly used, and it is strange to change it. I can’t see it as anything but them fiddling with the numbers to make them come out as they wanted,” he explained.

“This program was recently reauthorized by Congress after extensive hearings and debate.

“SO” Congress said it was “OK” to read your “EMAILS” How sick is “AMERICA?” “VERY” “SICK” I think, please people wake-up and scream at congress and the companys allowing this to happen.

 

Prism

A slide depicting the top-secret PRISM program.

The National Security Agency has obtained direct access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants, according to a top secret document obtained by the Guardian.

The NSA access is part of a previously undisclosed program called Prism, which allows officials to collect material including search history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats, the document says.

The Guardian has verified the authenticity of the document, a 41-slide PowerPoint presentation – classified as top secret with no distribution to foreign allies – which was apparently used to train intelligence operatives on the capabilities of the program. The document claims “collection directly from the servers” of major US service providers.

Although the presentation claims the program is run with the assistance of the companies, all those who responded to a Guardian request for comment on Thursday denied knowledge of any such program.

In a statement, Google said: “Google cares deeply about the security of our users’ data. We disclose user data to government in accordance with the law, and we review all such requests carefully. From time to time, people allege that we have created a government ‘back door’ into our systems, but Google does not have a back door for the government to access private user data.”

Several senior tech executives insisted that they had no knowledge of Prism or of any similar scheme. They said they would never have been involved in such a program. “If they are doing this, they are doing it without our knowledge,” one said.

An Apple spokesman said it had “never heard” of Prism.

The NSA access was enabled by changes to US surveillance law introduced under President Bush and renewed under Obama in December 2012.

PrismThe program facilitates extensive, in-depth surveillance on live communications and stored information. The law allows for the targeting of any customers of participating firms who live outside the US, or those Americans whose communications include people outside the US.

It also opens the possibility of communications made entirely within the US being collected without warrants.

Disclosure of the Prism program follows a leak to the Guardian on Wednesday of a top-secret court order compelling telecoms provider Verizon to turn over the telephone records of millions of US customers.

The participation of the internet companies in Prism will add to the debate, ignited by the Verizon revelation, about the scale of surveillance by the intelligence services. Unlike the collection of those call records, this surveillance can include the content of communications and not just the metadata.

Some of the world’s largest internet brands are claimed to be part of the information-sharing program since its introduction in 2007. Microsoft – which is currently running an advertising campaign with the slogan “Your privacy is our priority” – was the first, with collection beginning in December 2007.

It was followed by Yahoo in 2008; Google, Facebook and PalTalk in 2009; YouTube in 2010; Skype and AOL in 2011; and finally Apple, which joined the program in 2012. The program is continuing to expand, with other providers due to come online.

Collectively, the companies cover the vast majority of online email, search, video and communications networks.

Prism 

The extent and nature of the data collected from each company varies.

Companies are legally obliged to comply with requests for users’ communications under US law, but the Prism program allows the intelligence services direct access to the companies’ servers. The NSA document notes the operations have “assistance of communications providers in the US”.

The revelation also supports concerns raised by several US senators during the renewal of the Fisa Amendments Act in December 2012, who warned about the scale of surveillance the law might enable, and shortcomings in the safeguards it introduces.

When the FAA was first enacted, defenders of the statute argued that a significant check on abuse would be the NSA‘s inability to obtain electronic communications without the consent of the telecom and internet companies that control the data. But the Prism program renders that consent unnecessary, as it allows the agency to directly and unilaterally seize the communications off the companies’ servers.

A chart prepared by the NSA, contained within the top-secret document obtained by the Guardian, underscores the breadth of the data it is able to obtain: email, video and voice chat, videos, photos, voice-over-IP (Skype, for example) chats, file transfers, social networking details, and more.

PRISM slide crop
The document is recent, dating to April 2013. Such a leak is extremely rare in the history of the NSA, which prides itself on maintaining a high level of secrecy.

The Prism program allows the NSA, the world’s largest surveillance organisation, to obtain targeted communications without having to request them from the service providers and without having to obtain individual court orders.

With this program, the NSA is able to reach directly into the servers of the participating companies and obtain both stored communications as well as perform real-time collection on targeted users.

The presentation claims Prism was introduced to overcome what the NSA regarded as shortcomings of Fisa warrants in tracking suspected foreign terrorists. It noted that the US has a “home-field advantage” due to housing much of the internet’s architecture. But the presentation claimed “Fisa constraints restricted our home-field advantage” because Fisa required individual warrants and confirmations that both the sender and receiver of a communication were outside the US.

Fisa was broken because it provided privacy protections to people who were not entitled to them,” the presentation claimed. “It took a Fisa court order to collect on foreigners overseas who were communicating with other foreigners overseas simply because the government was collecting off a wire in the United States. There were too many email accounts to be practical to seek Fisas for all.”

The new measures introduced in the FAA redefines “electronic surveillance” to exclude anyone “reasonably believed” to be outside the USA – a technical change which reduces the bar to initiating surveillance.

The act also gives the director of national intelligence and the attorney general power to permit obtaining intelligence information, and indemnifies internet companies against any actions arising as a result of co-operating with authorities’ requests.

In short, where previously the NSA needed individual authorisations, and confirmation that all parties were outside the USA, they now need only reasonable suspicion that one of the parties was outside the country at the time of the records were collected by the NSA.

The document also shows the FBI acts as an intermediary between other agencies and the tech companies, and stresses its reliance on the participation of US internet firms, claiming “access is 100% dependent on ISP provisioning”.

In the document, the NSA hails the Prism program as “one of the most valuable, unique and productive accesses for NSA”.

It boasts of what it calls “strong growth” in its use of the Prism program to obtain communications. The document highlights the number of obtained communications increased in 2012 by 248% for Skype – leading the notes to remark there was “exponential growth in Skype reporting; looks like the word is getting out about our capability against Skype”. There was also a 131% increase in requests for Facebook data, and 63% for Google.

The NSA document indicates that it is planning to add Dropbox as a PRISM provider. The agency also seeks, in its words, to “expand collection services from existing providers”.

The revelations echo fears raised on the Senate floor last year during the expedited debate on the renewal of the FAA powers which underpin the PRISM program, which occurred just days before the act expired.

Senator Christopher Coons of Delaware specifically warned that the secrecy surrounding the various surveillance programs meant there was no way to know if safeguards within the act were working.

“The problem is: we here in the Senate and the citizens we represent don’t know how well any of these safeguards actually work,” he said.

“The law doesn’t forbid purely domestic information from being collected. We know that at least one Fisa court has ruled that the surveillance program violated the law. Why? Those who know can’t say and average Americans can’t know.”

Other senators also raised concerns. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon attempted, without success, to find out any information on how many phone calls or emails had been intercepted under the program.

When the law was enacted, defenders of the FAA argued that a significant check on abuse would be the NSA‘s inability to obtain electronic communications without the consent of the telecom and internet companies that control the data. But the Prism program renders that consent unnecessary, as it allows the agency to directly and unilaterally seize the communications off the companies’ servers.

When the NSA reviews a communication it believes merits further investigation, it issues what it calls a “report”. According to the NSA, “over 2,000 Prism-based reports” are now issued every month. There were 24,005 in 2012, a 27% increase on the previous year.

In total, more than 77,000 intelligence reports have cited the PRISM program.

Jameel Jaffer, director of the ACLU’s Center for Democracy, that it was astonishing the NSA would even ask technology companies to grant direct access to user data.

“It’s shocking enough just that the NSA is asking companies to do this,” he said. “The NSA is part of the military. The military has been granted unprecedented access to civilian communications.

“This is unprecedented militarisation of domestic communications infrastructure. That’s profoundly troubling to anyone who is concerned about that separation.”

A senior administration official said in a statement: “The Guardian and Washington Post articles refer to collection of communications pursuant to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. This law does not allow the targeting of any US citizen or of any person located within the United States.

“The program is subject to oversight by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the Executive Branch, and Congress. It involves extensive procedures, specifically approved by the court, to ensure that only non-US persons outside the US are targeted, and that minimize the acquisition, retention and dissemination of incidentally acquired information about US persons.

Who is Everest?

Everest University is one of the largest private universities in the state of Florida, and traces its roots back to 1890 when it was founded as Tampa College.* Everest University is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to award diplomas, associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees. The ACICS is listed as a recognized accrediting agency by the United States Department of Education and is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. We are also part of the Everest family of schools, which has more than 100 campuses throughout North America.

*The name change to Everest University occurred in November 2007.

What degrees do you offer online?

We are currently offering:

  • Accounting – Associate and Bachelor’s Degrees
  • Business – Associate, Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees
  • Criminal Justice – Associate, Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees
  • Computer Information Science – Associate and Bachelor’s Degrees
  • Criminal Investigations – Associate Degree
  • Homeland Security – Associate and Bachelor’s Degrees
  • Paralegal – Associate and Bachelor’s Degrees

What is your curriculum like?

What truly makes Everest University outstanding is that 50 percent of our classes are focused on the major core classes. This means that our students are utilizing their time and money concentrating on the classes that can prepare them for their careers.

Is the program 100% online?

Our online students never have to go into a classroom or go to a campus. Our students enroll, select classes, attend school, take tests, obtain their books and complete their degrees all from the comfort of home.

What makes Everest University Online convenient?

Our online university allows our students to attend class when they choose at any time of the day or night, and any day of the week. It is flexible and convenient. The classes work around our students’ needs.

What do I need to do to get started? How do I apply?

Qualified applicants to the university must:

Interview with an online admissions representative. The interview is conducted over the phone.

  1. Complete and submit the Student Application for Admission (e-mailed after interview).
  2. Complete and submit the financial aid** application, if the student is interested in seeking financial aid (e-mailed after interview).
  3. Complete the additional enrollment documents online.
  4. Attend orientation online.

**Financial aid is available for those who qualify.

What do your online classrooms look like?

You may visit the demo at our website:

http://www.everestonlinetour.com

Click on “Class Demo” to view an example of an online classroom.

When our students log into our online studies website, they will see the classes that they have signed up for and pick the class they would like to attend at that time. Our students will then be able to see the lectures, homework assignments and exams due. The lectures are posted by the instructor for the student to review. Our students have the option of printing their lectures so that they can review them anywhere at any time. Discussions are posted and students will reply with their opinions. The exams or quizzes are all open-book and are accessible online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What are the admissions requirements?

Graduation from high school or its equivalent (GED) and proof of graduation are prerequisites for admission to the university. Students must be a minimum of 18 years of age or older, or 17 with parents’ consent. Complete our online quiz to determine if online learning is right for you.

What classes will I need to take to complete my degree?

Please visitwww.everestonlinetour.com and click on programs. You will be able to view and print the curriculum.

How do I take student learning assessments?

All student-learning assessments are clearly identified in your course syllabus and can be taken from where you participate in your classes.

Where team assignments appear in your program of study, they make up no more than 10 percent of the total grade for the given course. To receive full credit on these assignments, you must participate in them. Your instructor will assign grades based on your participation and on that of the team.

How often do I have to log into my classes?

Attendance is taken weekly. To be marked present in a class, you must do one of the following: post twice in a discussion forum or team assignment, turn an assignment into the drop box, or take a quiz. Meeting theseminimum attendance requirements will not earn you a passing grade in any of your classes. To be successful, you should set aside 10 to 12 hours per week, per class, dedicated to actively participating in your courses.

Who are your instructors?

Our instructors are professional individuals who possess real-life experience in the fields they teach.

How can I be assured I will have personalized attention?

Our classes are small (18-25) and are designed to encourage your active participation. Our faculty members are there to answer your questions, provide feedback on assignments and help you take advantage of every teachable moment in the online classroom. Faculty will post office hours every week so you know when your faculty member is online waiting to help you.

If you cannot attend office hours, you can ask your faculty questions via e-mail, which they will answer within 24 hours.

The more you are engaged and participate, the more you will get out of your classes.

What if I need help?

At Everest University, we take great pride in providing our students with fast and courteous help. We have designed numerous avenues for our students to get the attention that they deserve:

—I will be youronline admissions representative. I will explain how the university works, assist you in deciding if an online education is right for you, and answer all your questions. I will also guide you through the enrollment process should you decide that online education will meet your specific needs.

—Our professional academic advisors assist our students with choosing the right classes in order to ensure that our students stay on target all the way through to graduation. Your advisor will evaluate and assist you in transferring credits from previous institutions.

—TheStudent Finance Office will also be working closely with you to process and answer any financially related questions.

—Everest’sOnline Help Desk is also available for free help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

—Our students also have the convenience of avirtual library, which means you never have to leave home to have access to our library. There is nothing to check out and it is open 24 hours a week, 7 days a week.

—We also provide an extensive list ofsupport and research sites.

—We offer tutoring viaSmarthinking®, phone and live webcam.

—Our career services representatives are here to assist our students in obtaining a career in a field that is pertinent to their studies.

How long will it take to obtain my degree?

Our students can obtain their associate degree in as little as 24 months, their bachelor’s degree in 24 months upon completion of their associate degree, and their master’s degree in typically 24 months after earning their bachelor’s degree. This will depend on the number of classes taken per quarter and, if applicable, the number of hours that you transfer. The more classes you take, the sooner you may graduate.

Can I go to school part-time or full-time?

Our students can choose to attend school part-time, full-time or full-time plus. In order to be considered a full-time student, our you must be enrolled in at least 12 credit hours per full quarter (12 weeks), which is approximately three classes or six credit hours per mini-term (six weeks). Everest University Online utilizes the quarter credit system as opposed to the semester system. A three-credit class on the semester system is valued at 4.5 credits in the quarter system.

What if I would like to transfer prior credits to Everest University Online?

We do transfer credits from other accredited institutions. Our Registrar’s Office would need a copy of your transcript to evaluate what hours would be transferable.

What about financial aid, grants, student loans, GI benefits, company tuition reimbursement and other forms of assistance?

We are an accredited university. Therefore, numerous forms of financial assistance are available for those who qualify. Our student finance representatives can work with you to apply for any financial assistance you may be eligible for and to assist you in working out an affordable payment plan, which will allow you to meet your tuition obligations. The Student Finance Office is available to assist in establishing eligibility, providing all necessary forms and assisting with the completion of all necessary paperwork, as well as answering any questions.

What are my tuition fees?

The cost of the program will be dependent on several factors such as transfer of credits and the program you choose. Please call me and we can discuss your specific needs in order to access what your investment and financial options would be.

What are some other important things to keep in mind about Everest University Online?

—The degree and transcripts our online students receive are exactly the same as what our campus students receive.

—Our entire program is online. Our students are not required to go to a campus for testing or to pick up books.

—We do not require our students to log in at a specific time or a specific day. You will be responsible for completing all the necessary homework in time to meet the deadline, but the amount of time you spend completing homework and studying is your responsibility. However, we recommend that you set aside 10 to 12 hours per week per class to participate in your courses. If you are taking three courses, this would mean that you set aside 36 hours per week for your coursework.

—Our students can attend school full-time or more if desired.

I hope this information has been helpful, and I look forward to talking with you soon.

Wolfgang Halbig and the Sandy Hook Hoax

Let me start off by saying this guy (a school safety and security expert and consultant who just so happens to have been contracted in the recent past by the Justice Department… hmmm…. ) answered “I want to raise a lot of money” when asked directly what his next step was and what he wanted to do. He’s made a point to say it twice so far in the interview. I’m 23 minutes into it at this point.

For those of you in the know, sounds a bit like Mike Gravel and the Truth movement to me (for those of you who don’t know: Mike pretended to be all about helping the Truth movement so he could “raise a lot of money” and then he ran off with it)

That said…

David sent me an email the other day which was a link to an American Free Press interview of one Wolfgang W. Halbig conducted by David Gahary.

Mr. Halbig has been filing FOIA requests with regards to the shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school back in Dec. of 2012. Specifically, he’s been focusing on the police and rescue team responses and how they differed substantially from standard operating procedures which because of his background, he would certainly be well aware of.

He brings up some very good issues in the interview such as:

 

  • why did the responding officers have to park a quarter mile from the scene?
  • why were there no Life Assist helicopters called in to help the wounded and take them to the hospitals?
  • why were the paramedics forced to remain outside the building, some 500 yards away at a crucial time when victims were lying bleeding on the floor?
  • who pronounced the victims as deceased, something only medical personnel can do on a scene?
  • why were several officers recorded sending children back into rooms 8 and 10 during the initial sweep of the school when according to the final report, all the dead children were found in those two rooms?
  • why did police at the scene report finding certain weapons inside the school and then change their story about what was found and where?
  • when asking about contractor’s names for such services as installing the new security system and cleaning up biological material after the event, he was told disclosing that information would “put the children at risk”. What the heck is that?
  • signs that read “everyone must sign in” on scene the morning of the shooting and porta-potties there within 3 hours?
  • no law suits filed by the parents against the school district for either negligence or how the first response on the scene was handled.
  • Eric Holder gave officers checks after the shooting?

Basically Mr. Halbig is giving voice to some legitimate concerns about what happened (or didn’t happen) that Dec. day. His conclusion is that it was a completely staged event and for the most part I have to agree with him.

He claims that some detectives from his local police department paid him a visit back in December of last year and threatened him with criminal charges out of Connecticut if he didn’t stop “harassing” public officials with his FOIA requests and phone calls. Of course since then all he’s done is go on one radio show after another with his story about these threats (he did a Jim Fetzer interview back in January) and so far, he’s still doing fine as far as I can tell.

There is no way to confirm that aspect of his story.

Mr. Halbig says he wants to raise this money so he can depose witnesses, get them to answer questions under oath and the fear of prosecution were they to provide false statements. Correct me if I am wrong, but I don’t think average citizens can run around questioning witnesses under oath without at least some form of legal mandate like an investigation or a pending trial. You can do something similar to what the Citizen’s Investigation Team (CIT) did with the Truth movement, but since that was an obvious disinformation campaign run by the Pentagon (Flyover theory), I don’t think it would be a good idea for this guy to model his efforts on that pattern.

At first glance his plan sounds good. Force those who made decisions that morning to explain why certain standard procedures weren’t followed, like why no trauma helicopters? That’s all well and good. But the problem is, without a criminal or even a civil case pending, they don’t have to attend such a disposition, much less answer any questions.

Mr. Halbig is saying all the right things and asking all the right questions so for that I link you guys to his interview and thank Dave for sending me the link. But to be honest, if he was doing all of this without the caveat that he wants to raise “a lot of money”, then I would probably be a bit more supportive. It also doesn’t help that he is a former contractor for the Justice Department and kicked off this campaign on the Jim Fetzer show (Fetzer also started such disinfo giants as Judy Wood, Morgan Reynolds, Steven Jones and of course, Mike Gravel)

Have a listen to the interview and let me know what you think.

Sandy Hook; GAME OVER: NO Deaths NO Victims in Official Record

Sandy Hook; GAME OVER: NO Deaths NO Victims in Official Record

SGT Report

February 23rd, 2014
Reader Views: 15,071

Balloons hang from the Sandy Hook Elementary School sign in Sandy Hook, in Newtown,

From livingonplanetZ:

The Sandy Hook shooting official narrative is now dead. We have seen in previous films how the Newtown school “shooting” was interconnected not only to the CIA, but also that Dawn Hochsprung – a supposed ‘victim’ of the event – is closely related to the family of a key propagandist. This propagandist AND Hochsprung are secretly and closely related to Peter Lanza – and therefore to the entire “Lanza” family!

While some genealogy websites list the ‘official’ Sandy Hook victims in database searches, it was discovered that NONE of the “deaths” were actually traceable to the town of Sandy Hook in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Why? Inconsistencies in the various proprietary databases suggested TAMPERING WITH THE RECORDS as the cause. Indeed, it has been revealed that a systematic effort was made about one year before the “massacre”, to block or limit public access to such records!

In this document, you will see the results of a painstakingly thorough search of the ORIGINAL Social Security Death Master File for the Sandy Hook “victims.” The results are shocking. A great deal of information is made available, so anyone can verify the result for themselves.

The Boston Marathon “bombing” taught us much about how the fake death industry works – particularly in connection with Sandy Hook (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m07q7… — The Fake Death Industry). Here, we can see it in action, with the people who put it to use.

A fate worse than death

A fate worse than death

A fate worse than death

A fate worse than death

Meaning

Any misfortune that would make life unlivable, especially rape or loss of virginity. The phrase was formally a euphemism for rape.

Origin

This phrase originally attested to the belief that a dishonoured woman was better off dead. It is still used, but ironically of late. The earlier view was expressed in Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, 1781:

“The matrons and virgins of Rome were exposed to injuries more dreadful, in the apprehension of chastity, than death itself.”

The current version of the phrase was used in several works from 1810 onward but was probably brought into public use via Edgar Rice Burroughs’ widely read Tarzan of the Apes, 1914:

“[The ape] threw her roughly across his broad, hairy shoulders, and leaped back into the trees, bearing Jane Porter away toward a fate a thousand times worse than death.”

 

One day a farmer A bigger bang for your buck A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush A bunch of fives A chain is only as strong as its weakest link A countenance more in sorrow than in anger A Daniel come to judgement A diamond in the rough A diamond is forever A dish fit for the gods A drop in the bucket A fate worse than death A feather in one hat A fish out of water A fish rots from the head down A fly in the ointment A fool and his money are soon parted A fool paradise A foot in the door A foregone conclusion A friend in need is a friend indeed A golden key can open any door A good man is hard to find A hard man is good to find Everyone says I love you Horse feathers Mans best friends

Its humble beginnings were braved by six teachers and five students. Since then, that number had grown sporadically. E & G is basically an ESL (English as a Secondary Language) school in Davao City. Its students originate mainly from South Korea and Japan. The students are taught the basics and dynamics of the English language. The school provides air-conditioned dormitory rooms, a dining hall which serves three square meals a day, numerous cubicles for both single and group classes, laundry services, room cleaning services, round-the-clock wifi service, competent office staff, a 24-hour CCTV system and security guard service. Despite the proliferation of various language centers around the country, E & G is an excellent choice by many prospective students. They are especially delighted about the breath-taking location of the school besides the sea fronting infamous Samal Island. The school is comfortably located nearby several huge malls and entertainment centers that provides relaxation for the students whenever they want to unwind. The locality is sprinkled with fast food and take-out counters as well as convenient outlets for immediate needs. The future goal of the school is to be able to bring in more students from South Korea and Japan and provide them with updated English teaching programs and bring it to a level of world-class compatibility.
