Breaking Down Us vs Them into We

  • Star Wars Addict's profile photo
    What about the police men who died who were straight!? What’s the difference between him and them? Just because he’s gay makes him “special”?! I think not! We should be honoring all of them, not just one man who happened to be homosexual! God damn it!

    It shows that we’re the same actually – and you’d hardly be complaining if the story was about him and a female partner.
    Where you one of the ones upset that the Storm Trooper who happened to be black?

  • Star Wars Addict's profile photo
    Nope, I still would be complaining, because it’s singling one person out amongst others. 😀

    +Star Wars Addict more importantly, why are you in my LGBTQ group when you are not a member or supporter?
  • Star Wars Addict's profile photo
     That’s actually really funny! You got me their mate. I’ll have to use that on someone later on. Thanks for the idea! Black stormtrooper, hah! Thanks for the laughs!
  • No, I’m gay. And I do support members of the LGBTQ community, I just don’t like it when one person is singled out as special among a group. I also hate it when people wave around the fact that they’re not straight like it somehow makes it better than straight people.

    about this story, the reason it is very critical that the fact he is gay is important is because he is civil unioned to his partner, who will not and would not get the same benefits if the murdered on duty cop had an opposite gender marriage.

    sorry but most do want to leave and what Robert Mercer, assuming you could be an American and you’re talking about the CEO of Renaissance Technologies, has to do with Brexit is a mystery. Antonio Tajani is just another politician who didn’t make the grade in their own country and found a nice little payday in the EU Commission. By the way that’s the gold at the end of the rainbow for most European politicians who ended up failing or being kicked out in their own countries. And as the UK is one of only a few net contributors to the EU of course they want us to remain in that hellhole of an organisation. They’re already squabbling over how to fill the gap in funding when we leave. After yet another terrorist attack in Paris tonight I’d imagine that the only pro-EU candidate in their election will swiftly go the the bottom of the polls.

    the Guardian and Independent are notorious anti-Brexit rags in the UK as is the BBC so any reports from any of them has to be taken with a huge pinch of salt. Both are masters of Fake News and have consistent reported any news stories that they “edit” to put forward their anti-Brexit stance. Most people who voted to remain in the EU did so out of fear of the unknown but those that voted to leave the EU remember life before joining the European Economic Community and definitely didn’t want to belong to the communist/socialist European Union. And don’t be mistaken the EU is just that and are using Cultural Marxism to destroy Europe.
  • James Graham's profile photo
    I have been in Europe for over twelve years, sorry but i disagree strongly with your version of what Europe is.
  • Hannah Morgan's profile photo
    You seem to have abandoned logic and sold your soul to conjecture.
    Why on earth would anybody deny themselves the opportunity to block something if it turns out to be really very bad?
  • Bill Callinder-Scott's profile photo
    I have no idea what you’re talking about! “Abandoned logic”? So year after year it’s logical to maintain a €126+ billion trade deficit with the other EU countries (http://exporthelp.europa.eu/thdapp/display.htm?page=st%2fst_Statistics.html&docType=main&languageId=en)? Almost all power in the EU is with the Commission whose members are all appointed. So not wanting that is illogical? People are trying to block it not because of how good it is for the UK to be in the EU but for selfish personal reasons. The number of UK MPs and Ministers, for example, that move into the EU Commission after their time in British politics has ended is too numerous to mention.

    By the way what “conjecture” are you referring to? What you are doing is signing up to the Guardian Crystal Ball logic. That is use the following words as often as possible, “may”, “could”, “possibly” and the like to report something that hasn’t happened and is not likely to happen but there’s a small chance it might. That’s the conjecture that’s peddled by the Remoaners. I voted to leave the EEC in 1975 but because the Remainers then succeeded with Project Fear and when the EEC transformed into the EU, which no one had agreed to, we were forced to accept this until last year.

  • Hannah Morgan's profile photo
    Almost all power in Whitehall is with the civil servants – so what, it’s how government works.
    The EU is democratic – each of the member states will have a vote in their parliaments on the Brexit deal and there will be a vote in the European parliament.
    Those are things the British wanted to deny their MPs and still might do so if May gets a clear majority.
    Of course denying the British people a vote on the final deal is something of which you approve even if it’s undemocratic.

  • Bill Callinder-Scott's profile photo
    I’m not being funny but I’ll leave you with your delusions about the EU. It’s best that before you make a comment you check the facts first. The EU commission is the only body that can amend old or introduce new new EU directives, laws, etc. The Heads of State have some say but with most decisions it’s a majority decision that succeeds. As the EU says “The ‘standard’ voting method in the Council. Qualified majority is the most widely used voting method in the Council. It’s used when the Council takes decisions during the ordinary legislative procedure, also known as co-decision. About 80% of all EU legislation is adopted with this procedure.” Vetoes are possible but the likes of Verhofstadt are trying their best to remove this option. The Parliament has almost no power at all so I’m not sure where the democracy notion comes into this organisation

X-Files and Physical Formats, eh

I watched the X-Files when it aired on tv, until it became unbearable to watch, after the move to LA California USA from Vancouver British Columbia Canada.

I watched the pilot of Millennium one of the spin off series.

I watched most of The Lone Gunman episodes as they aired.

I bought the complete box set which included the mid-series movie on DVD.

Then I bought the post series movie on Blu Ray.

Recently, I bought the X-Files reunion series.

The X-Files New Season

I haven’t been able to watch it yet because, having been in Federal Government for 13 years in 7 Departments – including the RCMP.

I don’t find tv and movies that entertaining – the lack of authenticity and dumbed down for the public in cliche tropes. is more frustrating than entertaining.

TV’s X-Files – the truth is out there

so unsurprisingly:

    Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
  • there is a limit to the number of times a person wants to buy the same product. I lived through the VHS/Beta wars and was stunned to see corporations give in to the Blu Ray standard. which is the last physical format we should be willing to buy because subscribing to content that is streamable dovetails with long tail marketing.
  • Douglas Heidzig's profile photo
    ok I see .
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    (joke mode:)you don’t know how bad it was – I worked in the only video store that had VHS and Beta. it was pitiful how the Beta people cried when titles were not always carried in both. (joke:off)
    and in the late 1980s tapes were $120 to $180 dollars and only stores had them. it was “Top Gun” and “Batman” that retailed for $40 and the home owned market was on. then, the chain stores with their buying power, ended all the Mom n Pop Shop with undercutting for $1 what we rented for $2.50 – I clerked at two stores in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
    The cost of manufacturing is practically nil, I also in the early 1990s, I worked as a General Manager for a Video Distributor which sold to stores, and knew that the cost of the tape was under $5 including the box and plastic tray and sold for that $80 to $120.

    also, Elvis Presley fans have been gouged and re-gouged more than any other fandom. we need to consider the environmental impact of consumerism.

    most Canadians don’t and don’t notice. the other thing William B Davis said was that if they’d known that Cancer Man would become a character from just a background player, it would have been cast with an American.

     ah. okay, thank you for the clarification, maybe you can explain this weird new thing of “real atheists” come to it from religion, and have a weird grudge against those us us who grew up without religion being mandatory.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    I think the best explanation might be – once you understand the difference between speaking from authority as opposed to speaking authoritatively. one is dogma and the other is data. learn once and build on that becomes knowledge, whereas religion is actually mental illness – and the diagnostic manual will be a lot smaller when it’s included.

  • I’ve never even heard of such a thing. Weird! I’m just so thankful that I’m out of it that I don’t have time for negativity. I guess I’m envious but not angry about it lol

Phobic in Public: Pattullo Bridge and More, eh!

Today, I drove over the Pattullo Bridge to drop The Parents at Royal Columbian for out-patient training both directions. Then again both ways picking them up at the end of the session at mid-day.

I decided to “treat” myself to a Sausage McMuffin – no egg – at McDonald’s.

The morning pitstop run found the drive thru too busy, so I parked and walked in.

I dislike this particular King George at 102nd, but didn’t want to drive further than I had to.

I walked into and was fourth in line, I wasn’t worried, there had been 7 vehicles in the 2 order rows that merged into one pay and pick up window line.

The White Woman in front of me asked an older White Man if it was “welfare wednesday.”

In my head, I walked back to the car and just went home.

The idiot snob pair chatted longer; during which, She also complained about having a new cold.

I wanted to back up a step, but there was a line behind me now, three deep.

The man left.

She glanced at me and complained about “big companies” and that only one person working.

 

Every person behind that counter was doing their job by my eye. They were doing the drive thru as priority.

Anyway, given her cold and stupidity, I didn’t want her to get anything on me.

I left and just walked out to the vehicle and I went through the drive through.

The oversized penis compensator white pick up truck with the extra wheel on the back that makes the trucks look fat had dual exhaust. Oversized to musical instrument size and belching exhaust fumes, white and pale blue. burning oil.

I hung back from him as far as I could; I couldn’t leave the line, there was an RCMP cruiser behind me – and a car that was expecting me to move ahead.

When I got to the pay window, the clerk and I commented about the truck, seriously, bring back air car BC government.

Toronto Police vs LGBTQ gets a twist

As a person who worked for RCMP, and is a member of the LGBTQ:

to other LGBTQ working at the municipal level

Dear Toronto Cops: STFU and shame on you for playing Good Conforming Queers vs Bad Wild in the Public Marginalized Ones.

this is seriously messed up

“good conforming queers” vs “bad public queers”

City budgets are about business and  employee groups don’t get input.

The police are still paid for security work; and reminder:after pride events, like sports events, there is an increase in street level social crimes – assaults and rapes of LGBQ and HeteroWomen by Publicly Heterosexual Males.

As Police, you just don’t get to march and this systemic bullying of the LGBTQ community is the reason. Break the cycle of stupidity and abuse from the inside.

Dear Mainstream Media, seriously your coverage is not our community’s public debate.

Dear Toronto Police – the city’s money is about the business impact, not you. Also, the bath house raid apology meant nothing when the cops continued to harass the community. this is more police bullying of LGBTQ and not the other way around.
Members of Toronto police’s LGBTQ network say they will feel “completely devalued and unsupported” if the city funds the planned grant of $260,000 to the Pride parade.

Toronto Police and Learning Consequences

“Wynne’s wide array of “priorities” has left her vulnerable to charges that she lacks focus on the key issues that truly matter for the vast middle class of Ontarians who decide every provincial election. Those interests can be summed in three words: Jobs, jobs, jobs.” Columnist Bob Hepburn writes.
Ontario election all about jobs, jobs, jobs: Hepburn | Toronto Star

If if BC and Ontario go NDP provincially, then it counter balances the Federal Liberals, who will have to learn more left to maintain the centre, eh.

as well as the 2000s, and frankly the 2010s protest grassroots.

    and Dear Science well Duh. try explaining why the religious try to use science to justify their anti LTGBQ, while they ignore it to retain their fear of other people who appear in differing skin tones.

 

 

 

Motor Neurons Adjust to Control Tasks

New research from Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Engineering and the University of Pittsburgh reveals that motor cortical neurons optimally adjust how they encode movements in a task-specific manner. The findings enhance our understanding of how the brain controls movement and have the potential to improve the performance and reliability of brain-machine interfaces, or neural prosthetics, that assist paralyzed patients and amputees.

The research is in eLife. (full open access)
