Playing with Paper Li I greatly dislike the pop-up subscribe window, but do not know a way to disable it. Maybe you have to pay for the service to be able to do that. I suppose there may be an adblock or element-hiding way to do it on an individual basis.

In Brief

December 9th, 2014 (04:07 pm)


I'm actually just checking to see whether I can post. My computer will not allow me to access LJ, and I'm using kproxy to even be here. Also, trying to get warranty service from Lenovo is a huge nuisance, and Staples is showing me how little my continuous business buying desktop computers from them is appreciated. My larger problem is that shortly after buying this computer (and continuously since), after updating to Windows 8.1, the sound breaks and ceases to work, requiring a restart to bring it back. I thought my fix of that by uninstalling updates broke access to LJ, so I reinstalled them, but I still can't access LJ normally. I guess this proxy will do for now.

Except for one thing - the button to enter the post did not do anything, so I am doing this with Semagic - but I think I can comment on the web :/

Deep State on social networking privacy - Business Insider

January 17th, 2014 (12:23 pm)


I feel quite free on Facebook, but have known from the start that it and everything on the internet is primarily about marketing. We have control over what we reveal - why anyone would volunteer their real name and vital stats on a social network is beyond me. And Facebook's (and Google+'s) "requirement" to use real names is a joke.

From Wikipedia:

Health
Main article: Health in Haiti

Half of the children in Haiti are unvaccinated; only 40% of the population has access to basic health care.[147] Prior to the 2010 earthquake, nearly half of all Haitian deaths were attributed to HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, meningitis and diarrheal diseases, according to the World Health Organization.[148] Ninety percent of Haiti's children suffer from waterborne diseases and intestinal parasites.[149] HIV infection is found in 2.2% of Haiti's adult population.[150] The incidence of tuberculosis (TB) in Haiti is more than ten times as high as in the rest of Latin America.[151] Approximately 30,000 people in Haiti suffer each year from malaria.[152]

Most people living in Haiti are at high risk for major infectious diseases. Food or waterborne diseases include bacterial and protozoal diarrhea, hepatitis A and E, and typhoid fever; common vectorborne diseases are dengue fever and malaria; water contact diseases include leptospirosis. Roughly 75% of Haitian households lack running water. Unsafe water, along with inadequate housing and unsanitary living conditions, contributes to the high incidence of infectious diseases. There is a chronic shortage of health care personnel, and hospitals lack resources, a situation that became readily apparent after the January 2010 earthquake.[153]

No, I don't think it's worse than doing nothing. Nothing is worse than doing nothing. Other than that, I agree with most of this.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
A strong nation, like a strong person, can afford to be gentle, firm, thoughtful, and restrained. It can afford to extend a helping hand to others. It is a weak nation, like a weak person, that must behave with bluster and boasting and rashness and other signs of insecurity. -Jimmy Carter, 39th US President, Nobel laureate (b. 1924)
