New Jersey Man Accused Of Shooting Down Neighbor’s Remote Control Drone

 

 

 

” A New Jersey man was arrested after police say he shot down a neighbor’s remote control drone.

According to investigators, officers with the Lower Township Police Department were called to a home in the 1000 block of Seashore Road on September 26th to investigate the report by a resident that his remote control helicopter (drone) was shot down.

  Investigators say the resident was taking aerial photographs of his friend’s home, which is under construction.

  While doing so, the resident told police he heard several gunshots as he simultaneously lost control of the drone.

  After retrieving the drone, the resident observed multiple holes in it that were consistent with a shotgun blast.”

Northeast Loses 40% Of House Seats As People Flee High-Tax States

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Northeast, once the nation’s political engine that produced presidents, House speakers and Senate giants including the late Edward M. Kennedy, is losing clout in Washington as citizens flee the high-tax region, according to experts worried about the trend.

  The Census Bureau reports that population growth has shifted to the South and the result is that the 11 states that make up the Northeast are being bled dry of representation in Washington.

  Critics blame rising taxes in states such as Massachusetts and Connecticut for limiting population growth in the Northeast to just 15 percent from 1983 to 2013, while the rest of the nation grew more than 41 percent.

The biggest impact comes in the loss of congressional representation.

  Deep in a recent report, for example, the American Legislative Exchange Council tabulated how the drop in population relative to the rest of the nation cut the region’s power in Washington. While the states from Pennsylvania to Maine had 141 House members in 1950, they are down to 85 today, a drop of some 40 percent.

California and Texas combined have more House representatives..

This result is one of the most dramatic demographic shifts in American history. This migration is shifting the power center of America right before our very eyes. The movement isn’t random or even about weather or resources. Economic freedom is the magnet and states ignore this force at their own peril,” said the report. “

‘Anti-Facebook’ Social Network Gets Viral Surge

 

 

 

 

 

” In a matter of days, the new social network Ello, described as the “anti-Facebook” for its stand on privacy and advertising, has become perhaps the hottest ticket on the Internet.

  Created last year as a “private” social network, Ello (www.ello.co) recently opened its doors on an invitation-only basis.

  Because of the limited supply and strong demand, the invitations have been selling on eBay at prices up to $500. Some reports said Ello is getting up to 35,000 requests per hour as a result of a viral surge in the past week.

  Ello appears to have caught on with its simple message which seems to take aim at frustrations of Facebook users.  

” Ello doesn’t sell ads. Nor do we sell data about you to third parties,” the company says.”

“Disperse Or We Fire”- Hong Kong Police Fire Tear Gas At Protesting Students: Live Webcast

 

 

Hong Kong Protests Ustream

 

 

” Yesterday we reported that the biggest riot over the weekend was not in Ferguson (although things there are hardly stable after a local police officer was shot in the violent town overnight) but in Hong Kong, where students and other mostly young people are protesting the recent loss of their democratic vote powers and thus “the loss of their freedom.” Since then things have gotten from bad to worse when late last night Hong Kong declared the start of the Occupy Central disobedience campaign, leading to violent skirmishes with the police, which over the past hour have included the use of tear gas by the police as well as the first outright warning by the cops demanding that the student protesters disperse or risk being fired upon.\

  The following warning from the local police urging protesters to disperse or “they will fire” has attracted a lof attention:

UAE’s First Female Fighter Pilot Led Airstrike Against ISIS

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Maj. Mariam Al Mansouri may be ISIS’ worst nightmare.

  The first female fighter pilot in the United Arab Emirates, she led a strike mission this week against the terror group, that country’s ambassador to the United States said Thursday.

” She is (a) fully qualified, highly trained, combat ready pilot, and she led the mission,” Yousef Al Otaiba told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

  The UAE has joined the United States and a handful of other Arab nations in conducting airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.

  This summer, the group declared the establishment of a “caliphate,” an Islamic state stretching across the territory it has conquered. It maintains strict rules for women, who are lashed for infractions such as not being fully covered.”

The Great Facebook Exodus Begins

 

 

Ello Home Page

 

 

 

 

” A little known independent social network might be having its big moment. As the debate around Facebook’s naming policy rages on, a growing swath of Facebook users appear to be jumping ship into a smaller, social lifeboat of sorts. It’s invite-only, anti-ads, and it’s called Ello.

  Short of Google+—distrusted by many thanks to a similar recently reversed “real name” policy—no single social network could withstand a mass influx of Facebook’s 1.32 billion monthly active users. But if this week’s rumblings are any indication, disenchanted Facebook users could look to smaller, independent social networks like Ello for their next move. 

  After seeing chatter about Ello in my own social circles, I reached out to Paul Budnitz, creator of this buzzy new anti-Facebook. Budnitz is the founder of designer toy maker Kidrobot and also owns and operates Budnitz Bicycles. I explained what I’d observed in my own social circles (my 1,000+ Facebook friends admittedly skew toward LGBTQ identities) to see if users from what some are calling Facebook’s “queer mass exodus” had started showing up on his own social experiment.

Why Ello? And why now? “

 

 

From Ello’s About page:

 

 

” What is Ello?

Ello is a simple, beautiful, and ad-free social network created by a small group of artists and designers.

  We originally built Ello as a private social network. Over time, so many people wanted to join Ello that we built a public version of Ello for everyone to use.

Ad Free

Ello doesn’t sell ads. Nor do we sell data about you to third parties.

  Virtually every other social network is run by advertisers. Behind the scenes they employ armies of ad salesmen and data miners to record every move you make. Data about you is then auctioned off to advertisers and data brokers. You’re the product that’s being bought and sold.

  Collecting and selling your personal data, reading your posts to your friends, and mapping your social connections for profit is both creepy and unethical. Under the guise of offering a “free” service, users pay a high price in intrusive advertising and lack of privacy.

We also think ads are tacky, that they insult our intelligence and that we’re better without them.

Read more about our no-ad policy here.

Support Ello

Ello is completely free to use.

  We occasionally offer special features to our users. If we create a special feature that you really like, you may choose to support Ello by paying a very small amount of money to add that feature to your Ello account.

  You never have to pay anything, and you can keep using Ello forever, for free. By choosing to buy a feature now and then for a very small amount of money you support our work and help us make Ello better and better.

Privacy

  When you use Ello we collect some information related to your visit. This information helps us understand in a general way how people are using Ello, so we can make our social network better.

  Unlike virtually every other social network, on Ello you can opt out of information sharing. Read How Ello Uses Information to learn how.

Join Ello

  Ello is currently invitation-only. To join Ello, you need to know someone that is already on the network. Alternatively, you can request an invitation by visiting the Ello Home Page.”

Woman Undergoes Surgery To Add Third Breast

 

 

 

 

 

” A US massage therapist has gone to extreme lengths to become a reality TV star, undergoing surgery to add a third breast to her chest.

  The Florida woman, who goes by the name Jasmine Tridevil, said she spent $20,000 on the procedure a few months ago after finally finding a doctor willing to perform the operation.

“ I called 50 doctors,” Tridevil told Real Radio 104.1.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” “It was really hard finding someone that would do it too because they’re breaking the code of ethics.”

  Tridevil’s third breast was constructed in the middle of her chest with a silicone implant and skin tissue cut from her abdomen.

The surgeon was not able to make an artificial areola, so Tridevil had one tattooed on. “

Hong Kong Students Step Up Pressure Against Communist China

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Thousands of university students waving yellow ribbons and “Democracy Now” banners boycotted their classes Monday to protest Beijing’s decision to maintain control over Hong Kong elections, marking an escalation of the city-island’s pro-democracy movement that now is taking aim at local pro-China billionaires.

Chanting “Reject fake elections,” the students marched at Chinese University and said their boycott will continue all week as they gather en masse at government offices and headquarters. The protesters said it’s the first phase of a battle that will include occupying Hong Kong’s central business district in the next few weeks to tell the city’s elite to stop backing China.

The activists said they won’t stand down until they get results.

“ I believe a fight for democracy is a war,” said Chan Kin-man, a leader of a group called Occupy Central, which is spearheading the protest in the financial district. “The occupation of the central business district is just one battle.” “

Moms Demand Action Asked To Leave Kroger

 

 

 

 

” Refusing to bow to Moms Demand Action, Kroger asked 12 women protesting outside one of their stores to leave the premises. 

“You don’t need a gun to buy a box of cereal,” said Linda Brundage, MDA’s mid-Michigan leader outside the store. “Kroger would not be breaking any laws by saying to their customers, ‘Leave your guns locked in the car.’”

Even though Kroger knew about the protest, they still will not budge on their stance allowing patrons to carry guns into their stores.”

Yes, I Blame White Liberals

 

 

” A white teacher said he routinely overhears vulgar and racist comments from students at an all-black high school.  I blame the black youths’ negative mindset on blacks in the civil rights exploitation business and white liberals with their stomach-turning bigotry of lowered expectations.

  We see snooty, arrogant, superior intellectual-sounding white liberal pundits and hosts all over TV touting their absurd narrative that blacks have a right to be angry in racist America and must be coddled.  These liberal celebs followed certain steps and behaviors to achieve success.  And yet, they claim that expecting blacks to follow the same road map to success is racist.  Blacks should be repulsed by this liberal narrative, which implies that we are inferior.  I want to scream, “How dare you lower the bar for me?  I be as smart as any white person!”  Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

  I have witnessed the same racist mindset in a white liberal couple who are longtime friends.  They have had financial highs and lows in their efforts to run various businesses.  They work hard and will take any job to pay their bills.  Applying for government welfare is not on their radar.  They employed horrible black employees, always making excuses for them, giving them a pass because they were black.  I was amazed that they could not see the racism at the root of their low expectations, disguised as compassion. 

  At every turn, liberals send the message that blacks are lesser Americans.  Liberals say it is hateful for conservatives/Republicans to expect blacks to speak English correctly, show an ID to vote, refrain from murdering each other, and stop dropping out of school.  White liberals say asking blacks to refrain from having babies out of wedlock is culturally insensitive and imposes morality on them.  Libs ignore the truth that fatherless households contribute to gang membership, black-on-black violence, and poverty.  Do you see the pattern?  White liberals insinuate that urban blacks are poor uncouth savages.  Therefore, a 6’4” 290-pound black thug should be given a pass for robbing a convenience store, assaulting the clerk, and attacking a police officer while on his way to Grandma’s house.”

” Chris Lollie, of St. Paul, Minnesota was tased infront of his children as he went to pick them up from school on January 31.  He claims he was racially profiled as all he was doing was sitting down waiting to pick up his children when he was approached by the police, seemingly for no reason.

  He was charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct and obstruction of the legal process but all charges were dismissed on July 31.

  Lollie filmed the entire encounter, but his phone was taken by the officers as evidence.  After charges were dropped his phone was returned and he promptly uploaded the video of him being attacked to YouTube. “

Scottish Independence: Yes Camp Closes The Poll Gap

 

 

 

 

 

” Support for Scottish independence has risen eight points in a month, according to a new poll.

  The No camp are now six points ahead of the Yes campaign, down from 14 points in mid-August and 22 points early last month, excluding undecided voters.

  The latest YouGov poll found that, excluding ”don’t knows”, 53% of those questioned planned to vote No, while 47% would back Yes.

  This compares to 57% for No and 43% for Yes in mid August and 61% for No and 39% for Yes at the beginning of last month.

  Blair Jenkins, Chief Executive of Yes Scotland, said: ”This breakthrough poll shows that Yes has the big momentum – it’s an all-time high for Yes support in a YouGov survey so far, and an eight-point swing from No to Yes in just three weeks. We only need another three-point swing to achieve a Yes for Scotland on September 18.

” While the No campaign press the panic button and blame each other for a series of blunders, Yes will get on with the job of persuading more of our fellow citizens – both No and undecided voters – that we need a Yes vote to put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands.” ” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Armed & Dangerous: 89-Year-Old World War II Veteran Shoots Armed Robber

 

 

 

” Arthur M. Lewis may be elderly, but criminals are learning the North Palm Beach man is no easy mark.

  The 89-year-old decorated World War II veteran foiled an armed robbery attempt Saturday afternoon at his Lake Park jewelry business that left a 44-year-old suspect with six gunshot wounds, but no loot.

  Lewis was working behind the counter at The Jewelry Exchange at 900 N. Federal Highway when he was approached by a gun-wielding man around 3 p.m., according to an arrest report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. Lewis said he immediately grabbed the suspect’s revolver and pulled out a .38-caliber handgun from his own pocket.

  The two men wrestled for several minutes and fired shots at each other. Despite battling someone half his age, Lewis got the best of it. A man identified by the sheriff’s office as Lennard Patrick Jervis, a Miramar resident, was shot six times by Lewis, including four times in the chest. Lewis’ left arm was grazed by a bullet, but he was otherwise unscathed.”

Stunning Aerial Pictures Show Tens Of Thousands Stranded In The Desert At The Gates Of Burning Man

 

 

 

Huge queue: This picture taken by a Burning Man festival-goer who flew into the event shows the enormous tailback at the gate

 

 

 

 

” Incredible pictures taken from the air show the astonishing number of people stranded in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert after rare heavy rains prevented them entering the site of the annual Burning Man festival.

  By now it should resemble something from a post-apocalyptic Mad Max movie, a teeming mini city growing out of the sand.”

 

 

 

Deserted:  Tens of thousands of people should have arrived to create a make-shift city in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. But after Monday morning's rains, the site is empty and will remain so until Tuesday

 

 

 

” But standing water turned the playa 90 miles north of Reno into a quagmire and police barred ticket holders entry to the free-spirited week-long arts event, telling them not to return until Tuesday afternoon.

  Hundreds of vehicles massed outside the gates waiting for the weather to clear up, with some posting messages on Twitter about their predicament using the hashtag #strandedman.

  Festival-goer Jordan Kalev arrived at the event by plane and took pictures of the site as he flew over showing the sheer volume of traffic massed at the entrance and the soggy state of the ground.

  Around 70,000 people were left anxiously waiting for the event to start, with many driving back to Reno rather than queue in the desert. “
