What Are They Thinking: Democrats and Duterte – The Daily Grind

Rents in California are notoriously high. The average price for an apartment in San Francisco is about $3,600 per month (that’s about twice as high as Miami and Chicago). But blocking that price from increasing won’t create more homes for people who need a place to live.Oregon in February passed a law which limits rent increases to 7% plus local inflation. Lawmakers in Colorado and New York are considering similar moves.The prospect of rent control comes during a time when the apartment business has been strong, and analysts expect the new bills to have a negative effect on the industry.“It has been proven time and again that rent control does not work,” argues Sid Lakireddy, president of the California Rental Housing Association. “We do not need more distractions and resources spent on failed policies but instead we need policies that encourage more affordable and accessible housing.”

John Wilkes Booth ‘got away with assassinating Abraham Lincoln’
John Wilkes Booth ‘got away with assassinating Abraham Lincoln by evading capture and living nearly four decades under assumed identities’

  • John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in April 1865 
  • It is widely believed that he was tracked down and killed days later in Virginia
  • But new facial recognition technology says he may have lived long after 
  • Software analyzed faces of Booth, John St. Helen, and David E. George
  • It found there is a strong likelihood that these three men are the same person

John Wilkes Booth may have gotten away with the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

New evidence uncovered by facial recognition technology appears to show that Booth lived for decades under an assumed identity after he shot Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. on April 14, 1865.

The conventional historiography holds that Booth was shot dead by Union soldiers five days after the assassination inside a barn on a farm in Virginia.

But an investigator with the Discovery Channel series Mummies Unwrapped says that modern-day face recognition technology shows that Booth’s face matched with that of two other men – John St. Helen and David E. George.

The researchers ran the images of St. Helen, George, and Booth through a computer and found that there was a strong possibility that these three individuals were the same man.

Like all good Conspiracy Theories, it has a “feeling of credibility” about it.  Soldiers collecting a reward for some poor soul; not Booth.  The VP with his hand in it.  Deathbed confessions. 

And, the biggest reason to believe it is a compound reason:  (1) If the VP was in on it (i.e., the password), then the assassin needed to be “caught” and also unable to implicate anyone.  (2) The Gooferment couldn’t stand having the image that it couldn’t catch one lone assassin; people would begin to doubt the power of Big Gooferment. (3) Since it is easily disproved by an exhumation and DNA test, what it the motive for NOT disproving it.

Police Efforts Like This Will Undermine NZ’s Gun Control Attempt

AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File Following the horrific events in Christchurch, New Zealand, the country has lashed out at gun owners and changed its laws so that massive numbers of gun owners have to turn over their guns or become criminals.

Yet has France, for example, stopped terrorists from using guns, despite the nation’s long history of gun control? No. France can try, but it’s a lost cause, and so too it will be in New Zealand.

Gun control won’t work.

Pretty sad when guns are stolen from the police!

Gooferment — at all levels — is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.

Clip sharing with Overcast –

Like Slopes and Castro, I’ve changed to a date-based version-numbering scheme — 2019.4 is the fourth update released in 2019, the next version will be 2019.5, and so on — partly because version numbers don’t really matter anymore, but mostly because I no longer wanted to delay completed features until a major-version change or worry that I didn’t do enough to justify a certain number.

Interesting observation imho.

Version numbers really have become brands to the extreme like Windows 7 or iPhoneX.

For my part, i like the simple sequence.  I use 2019-Apr-28 (YYYYMMMDD) or 2019-04Apr-28 (YYYYmmMMMDD) for dates because of it’s “global” simplicity.

We need to make ourselves more clear when we communicate.
