 Leatherman Launches Fashion Band With 25 Tools – And You Can Even Use It As A Watch Strap

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Forget carrying a Swiss Army Knife –  if you want to be prepared, all you really need is a bracelet.

  Portland-based Leatherman Tool Group is about to launch wrist wear that hides 25 different tools.

  Dubbed ‘Tread’, the bracelet is made of 17-4 stainless steel links which each hide two or three items such as wrenches and screwdrivers.”

Leatherman plans to start selling the bracelet sometime this summer, and also says it will include it in a watch design. No official pricing is offered on the tool, but one blog post claims it could be in the region of $200 (£130)

” ‘ The idea originated on a trip to Disneyland with my family,’ said Leatherman’s president Ben Rivera, who was an engineer with the company for 22 years. ‘ I was stopped at the gate by security for carrying a knife, when what they had actually seen was my Skeletool.

  I was unwilling to give it up, so they made me take it all the way back to my hotel room.’ ‘ I knew there had to be another way to carry my tools with me that would be accepted by security,’ he said.”

Footage Of Cop Shooting Man With Raised Hands Stirs Anger In South Jersey

 

 

 

” A police officer shooting a man with raised hands is stirring anger in South Jersey.

  The video from a police dashboard camera shows Bridgeton officers Braheme Days and Roger Worley in a Dec. 30 stop that goes awry, with Days yelling at the passenger, Jerame Reid, “Show me your hands!”

“ If you reach for something, you’re going to be f—- dead!” he yells in the video, as reported by the New York Post. Reid then gets shot.”

 

 

    Decide for yourself , but what we see here in the above video is an “amped up” cop screaming and cursing who immediately shoots the alleged suspect as he steps out of the car with his hands in the air . Another man dead at the hands of the State over a failure to stop at a stop sign .

Cop Records Himself Shooting Man For Running Away

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Muskogee, Oklahoma Police Department just released the video from a fatal on-duty police shooting Friday. The whole thing was captured by an officer’s body camera, and what it shows is horrifying.

  Officer Chansey McMillin can be seen shooting and killing 21-year-old Terence D. Walker back on January 17th. The only observable reason why he as shot was for running from police who confronted him.

  The video documents what otherwise might have been in dispute, that Officer McMillin fired five shots at Walker when the suspect stopped to pick up an item he dropped while running away.”

 

    While the object that Walker dropped may or may not have been a gun , what we saw in the video was a fleeing suspect stop , bend down to retrieve something , and then continue running away . We did not see the suspect turn towards the officer or make any threatening moves .

Jon Stewart – Which Picture Is Upsetting The Middle East This Week

 

 

 

 

Published on Jan 20, 2015

” The Middle East and pictures are having a rough few weeks together, Jon Stewart said on Monday night’s Daily Show. First, Islamist gunmen in France murdered 12 people at a newspaper over a cartoon of Islam’s Prophet Mohammed, then a Jewish ultra-orthodox newspaper photoshopped out all the women (including Germany’s chancellor and the Paris mayor) from a photo of world leaders protesting that act of violence.

  So Stewart started a new game, “What Picture is Upsetting the Middle East This Week?” Sadly, he already has a candidate, and it involves Lebanon, Donald Trump, and a selfie snapped by Miss Israel. Watch below. —Peter Weber “

Aldous Huxley

 

 

 

“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers…. The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth.”

Sunday Marks The Premiere Of The Three Part Mini-Series “Sons Of Liberty” From The History Channel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SONS OF LIBERTY, the three-night, six-hour event, follows a defiant and radical group of young men–Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Dr. Joseph Warren–as they band together in secrecy to change the course of history and make America a nation.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Sons of Liberty sparked a revolution, the cast depicting them includes: Ben Barnes(The Chronicles of Narnia) as Sam Adams, a natural born leader with charisma and a penchant for mischief; Ryan Eggold (The Black List) as Dr. Joseph Warren, a doctor and man of conscience and integrity; Michael Raymond-James (Jack Reacher, Terriers, True Blood) as Paul Revere, a veteran who wholeheartedly joins forces with Sam Adams; Rafe Spall(Prometheus, Life of Pi) as John Hancock, the wealthiest man in Boston at the time; andHenry Thomas (E.T. The Extraterrestrial, Gangs of New York, Legends of the Fall) as John Adams, a lawyer and the conservative, smart cousin of Sam Adams. Additionally, Marton Csokas (Equalizer, The Lord of the Rings, Rogue) plays the ferocious General Thomas Gage who is sent to handle the colonial unrest in Boston; Emily Berrington (24: Live Another Day) as Margaret Gage; Jason O’Mara (The Good Wife, Terra Nova, Life on Mars) as General George Washington and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad, Under the Dome, Men, Women & Children) as the brilliant yet mischievous diplomat Benjamin Franklin.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Calling themselves the Sons of Liberty, they light the spark that ignited our revolution. While many of their names have become legendary, this group of young rebels didn’t start off as noble patriots. They were a new generation of young American men from varied backgrounds, struggling to find purpose in their lives. They were looking for equality, but they found something greater: Independence.”

NEW YORK CITY, NY — Lauren Fern Watt and her English Mastiff, Gizelle, had been through a lot over the years –college, boyfriends and even a big move from Tennessee to New York. So, when her beloved, 160-lb “roommate” was diagnosed with bone cancer, she was devastated.

According to Watt’s blog on lifewithdogs.tv, the vet told her Gizelle only had a few months to live.

“My sobbing seemed unstoppable, but Gizelle was sensitive and didn’t like to see me cry,” Watt wrote. “I had to be strong.”

So she chose not to wallow, and she set out to make a bucket list for her longtime companion.

“It was my mission for us to indulge and explore life’s joys,” she wrote. “We’d escape the city and search for waterfalls, cook lobster and nap in the grass. We’d jump in the ocean without towels, just to enjoy the sun drying us…

House And Senate Are Considering Bills To Allow Hemp Nationwide

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Republican Congressman Thomas Massie is a man on a mission, and that mission is to get farmers in his home state of Kentucky and across the nation growing hemp again. Massie is a staunch libertarian with a disdain for intrusive federal regulation, and his Industrial Hemp Farming Act would chip off a bit of federal power by allowing cultivation of industrial hemp in the United States.

  While Massie himself is something of an outsider in the Republican Party, having voted twice against John Boehner for Speaker of the House, this particular cause is moving further into the mainstream. His new bill boasts 47 co-sponsors*, forming a surprising coalition of lawmakers from both parties and suggesting there could be a groundswell of support for allowing marijuana’s strait-laced cousin back into American fields.

  Industrial hemp can be made into a variety of products, including paper, food, clothing, and cosmetics. It does not contain enough of marijuana’s psychoactive ingredient, THC, to get anyone high from smoking it. Rep. Massie has taken to tweeting about the bill with the hashtag #ThinkRopeNotDope. “

I Rode A Hoverboard With Tony Hawk

 

 

 

 

 

 

” I’ve been saying that a lot lately. Out loud. At all kinds of inopportune moments. Like, “Hey, sorry I didn’t get back to you—I was busy because I WAS RIDING A HOVERBOARD WITH TONY HAWK.” Or, “Ketchup? Oh yeah, that reminds of this time I WAS RIDING A HOVERBOARD WITH TONY HAWK.” Total dick.

  But I really did ride a hoverboard with Tony Hawk. A totally real, not fake, working hoverboard. This isn’t any of that Funny or Die bullshit. It’s real. The folks at Arx Pax dropped a press release and a video in October claiming that they have developed the technology to make shit hover. At the time, I interviewed the company’s founders, Greg and Jill Henderson, and at the end of our interview they invited me up to their lab in Los Gatos, Calif. to ride the hoverboard myself.

  Hendo’s hover technology relies on magnets, which means the hoverboard can, for the time being, only hover over non-ferrous materials. When I first spoke to Greg and Jill, I apologized for not being a scientist before I began asking stupid questions like, “What does non-ferrous mean?” and “Why can’t I ride it down the street?”

“ No worries about not being a scientist,” Greg said, “because neither are we. I’m an architect by trade, and that’s where this technology came from. Right now, what we have is essentially the Model-T [of hoverboards]. This is a proof of concept. And because we made this big leap in efficiency, we are able now to do what other folks couldn’t do on a conductive material like aluminum or copper. As we optimize this system, ideally we’ll be able to go on other surfaces.” “

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – The St. Louis County Police Department released nearly 200 images taken from surveillance video on the night looters ransacked a Dellwood business last November.

The looting occurred on November 24, in the hours following the announcement that a grand jury would not indict a Ferguson police officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

The suspects smashed their way into the Dellwood Market on Chambers Road and stole several items before fleeing.

If you can identity any of these suspects, you’re asked to contact the St. Louis County Police at 314-889-2341 or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477. All calls are anonymous.

U-M fraternity Suspended; University Names 5 Other Greek Orgs Involved In Ski Resort Vandalism

 

Well here's the damage http://t.co/iMqyw0nQ12

 

 

 

” Sigma Alpha Mu’s national office has ordered its University of Michigan chapter to suspend all activities for an indefinite period of time following a weekend of vandalism at a northern Michigan ski resort on Jan. 17-18.

  The university released a statement Thursday evening saying that the SAM national office’s suspension includes all meetings, chapter events, philanthropy, recruitment, candidate education, social activities and other Greek life activities on the Ann Arbor campus.

  The suspension comes after the group caused extensive damage to about 40 rooms at Treetops Resorts in Gaylord. Damages included broken doors, furniture and fixtures, trashing of carpet and other facilities, and broken electronics, and an initial guess estimated damages at about $50,000.”

N.Y. Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver Accused Of $4 Million Bribery And Kickback Scheme, Dems Continue To Support Him

 

 

 

 

 

” Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver declared his innocence Thursday after facing bombshell federal corruption charges of soliciting $4 million in dirty money over the last 15 years.

“ I am confident that after a full hearing and due process, I will be vindicated of these charges,” a relaxed Silver announced after his release on $200,000 bond following a Manhattan Federal Court hearing.

  Silver, spied earlier taking an uncomfortable ride to the courthouse alongside an FBI agent, made his brief appearance after U.S. Attorney Preet Bhahara blasted him as the epitome of a corrupt politician.

“ For many years, New Yorkers have asked the question, ‘How could Speaker Silver, one of the most powerful men in New York, earn millions of dollars in outside income without deeply compromising his ability to honestly serve his constituents?’” said Bharara.

“ Today we provide the answer: He didn’t.” “

King Abdullah Of Saudi Arabia Dead At 90, Half-Brother Succeeds Him

 

 

 

” King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, the powerful U.S. ally who joined Washington’s fight against Al Qaeda and sought to modernize the ultraconservative Muslim kingdom has died at 90, according to Saudi state TV.

  His successor is his 79-year-old half-brother, Prince Salman, who recently has taken on the ailing Abdullah’s responsibilities.

  The announcement came in statement read by a presenter on Saudi state TV, which aired video of worshippers at the Kaaba in Mecca.

  Saudi state TV said he died after midnight Friday.

A former American diplomat close to the Saudi royal family told Fox News the death of King Abdullah, coupled with the collapse of the government in Yemen, is a “worst case scenario” for the U.S. because current events are allowing Iran to extend its reach and influence in the region.

  With the collapse of President Hadi’s government in Yemen, the former diplomat said Teheran’s influence is now seen in at least four Middle Eastern capitals – Sana’a in Yemen, Baghdad in Iraq, Damascus in Syria, and to a lesser extent in Beirut, Lebanon.”
