Google Nexus Player at the FCC

Well, that didn?t take long. Just a couple of days after Google stopped pre-orders of the Nexus Player while it waited for the FCC?s all-clear, its Android TV puck has received approval. There aren?t any surprises in the regulatory filing, but it should let you both pre-order the WiFi media hub soon and (hopefully) get it around that originally promised November 3rd release date. If you were worried that you?d have to make do with a Chromecast for a little while longer, you can relax.

The Emerald Isle: The Giant’s Causeway

The Giant's Causeway

I will begin by asking you the same question my tour guide Richie asked us when we boarded or tour bus for the day. Do you believe it was built by Giants or volcanoes?

The Giant’s Causeway is one of only two structures in the world that are the same. One is in Northern Ireland and the other is directly across the ocean in Scotland.  Have you ever experienced what it is like to stand on a natural structure that there are only two of in the world? It is a feeling that cannot be described, and until you have stood on such a structure, you will never know what it feels like.

Fortunately The Giant’s Causeway (both of them) have magically landed in two countries that are full of myths and legends, and fairy tales. The ancient people in both of these countries needed no help in contriving the…

There is a great need for humanity to wake up. You are being sucked into another war by the LIES that are being told to you by the politicians. They just alter the wording each time. Are you so feeble-minded that you do not ask, “Why go back to kill those that you pretended to “rescue” last time.”

You are your brother’s keeper. The killing is being done in your name. All it will achieve is to buy the Cabal a little more time. Please do not turn a blind eye to the plight of those who are being slaughtered in your name, with bombs which are paid for by your taxes. Where is the LOVE in your lives? Have you forgotten that you should love one another?

(Updates fourth paragraph to include reference to ProPublica article containing Carmen Segarra’s allegations.)

Probably most people would agree that the people paid by the U.S. government to regulate Wall Street have had their difficulties. Most people would probably also agree on two reasons those difficulties seem only to be growing: an ever-more complex financial system that regulators must have explained to them by the financiers who create it, and the ever-more common practice among regulators of leaving their government jobs for much higher paying jobs at the very banks they were once meant to regulate. Wall Street’s regulators are people who are paid by Wall Street to accept Wall Street’s explanations of itself, and who have little ability to defend themselves from those explanations.

Our financial regulatory system is obviously dysfunctional. But because the subject is so tedious, and the details…

Lada Ray: Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s Straight Talk at UNGA, September, 27, 2014

Lavrov for UN Secretary General!

Maybe then UN will finally start doing its job! Unfortunately, after the collapse of the USSR UN, just like so many countries on the planet, has become a US lapdog.

No one has monopoly on truth – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at UNGA 2014:

The US-led Western block rejects the principle of the equality of sovereign states secured by the UN Charter while advocating democracy in the international arena, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressing the UNGA. READ MORE:

When I die: Spente Le Stelle

Originally posted on Boycott Holland:

Now that Europe is threatened by Russian invasion, Chinese take-over and head-chopping terrorism, wise people make a do-list for one’s own funeral. I hope to live for another thirty weblogging years but if this hope is cut short then the survivors should know what music to play and what wine to toast with.

The wine was easy: Brunello di Montalcino. The music was difficult though, and it took a couple of bottles of BdMs to decide from Mozart’s Requiem or The Band’s The Last Waltz or Mahler’s Ninth by Bernard Haitink or perhaps something appropriate by Bob Dylan. It is amazing how tantalising it can be, this care that you want to provide your survivors with: some of who might not like classical music or some who might walk out when hearing Dylan.

My funeral choice is Spente Le Stelle (Dull are the stars), sang by Emma Shapplin and…

Moscow called on Sunday for a new “reset 2.0” in relations with Washington, saying the situation in Ukraine that had led to western sanctions against Russia was improving thanks to Kremlin peace initiatives.

Washington and Brussels accuse Moscow of supporting a pro-Russia rebellion in east Ukraine and have imposed sanctions, which they have repeatedly tightened since Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in March.

The conflict has brought relations between Moscow and the west to their lowest level since the end of the cold war. President Barack Obama said last week that the sanctions could be lifted if Russia takes the path of peace and…
