A different viewpoint:
I appreciate that the Guggenheim Museum is a private entity. What I am about to say is not a reflection on the Museum. My comment is about society as a whole.

I have traded millions of dollars of stock shares and have lived off the Capital Gains. I have also been broke. Stuff happens but I would never give up due to a downturn in finances. I have been able to pick my self up and and get back on my feet financially. Thankfully I have never had to call the street my home.

Unfortunately some folks sadly do end up on the street.

Within a few blocks of the Guggenheim Museum I am sure that one could find “Homeless” people. You know, the unfortunates who do not have a pot to piss in (much less a Golden Toilet). The Homeless do not register in people’s mind. On the other hand, people will give away their money (pay an entrance fee) to see a Gold Toilet.

Would I pay to see a Golden Toilet?

No, I would rather give the money to a Homeless person, who could then afford to go to a restaurant to buy a coffee and use their Restroom and retain some of their dignity.

It’s a very strange world where you have people flocking and making a big deal over a Golden Toilet, while others have to sleep and live on the street. The Golden Toilet and the Homeless could be viewed within walking distance of each other. Rather sad…

European Court ruling may have a major impact on the Internet in Europe

Bloomberg has posted a news item regarding a European Court Ruling in reference to a Dutch copyright infringement case. This is only the first shot, as stricter European Union  rules on the Internet are expected shortly.

In brief, the ruling speaks about hyperlinks potentially being illegal, especially if the site posting the hyperlinks to copyrighted material is a for profit entity.

Gregg Braden talk at the “2012 – Gateway to Your Future Conference” held at Convocation Hall, University of Toronto, Canada – Oct 2011

Gregg Braden has a science and engineering background. His resume includes high level positions at Cisco Systems and programming Nuclear Missiles. He is also a best Selling Author.

I was amazed at the topics which he touched on. An amazing presenter. Tis was a live 2 hours presentation and he did not need any notes.

One part which fascinated me is that Greg Braden discussed Peer Reviewed Scientific Proof that Global Warming is Cyclical. Also that the Warming started way before the concentrations of CO/2 gas increase in the atmosphere. Yes, there is Global Warming. It is cyclical and “not Man Made”. Sure mankind may be helping it, but Mankind did “not cause it“.

He also goes into human ancestors. Humans are not genetically related to Neanderthals. Human DNA and Neanderthal DNA are very different. We are different species, and “NOT” related. That was an eye opener. He provides Peer Reviewed proof, that somehow is not making it into our Educational Systems.

Cisco Talos Security Webinar

Participated in the Cisco Talos Security Webinar on Wednesday.

Last year I had posted about Kaspersky Lab reporting about a Bank exploit, where Russian Banks were targeted. Basically the Hackers were able to get Bank Accounting Staff to connect to a site where a keylogger and other Trojan Remote Control software was secretly uploaded and installed into “system RAM“, but not onto the Hard Disk or Network Storage. That allowed their remote control software (called Lurk) to be overlooked by Security Software, because Security Software usually scans stored files and not RAM. Once installed, the hackers could monitor the employees. When the employee went for lunch, they took over the PC and started to transfer funds around the world.

Earlier this year, Russian Authorities had arrested over 50 alleged Hackers who were alleged to be part of the group which targeted and Hacked into the Banks. The investigation into this group’s activities had been ongoing for years (at least since 2013). The Cisco Talos Security Webinar discussed the arrests and the aftermath. Cisco’s research seems to indicate that the same group was involved in other Internet Exploits. One of which was the Angler Ransomware.

Since the Russian arrests, certain malware has disappeared, along with certain DarkNet sites and BotNets. The Russian Authorities made the Internet a tad safer, at least for a short while.

Dropbox Mega-Breach confirmed.

Over 60 million email addresses and passwords were hacked from Dropbox years ago. That data is floating around the folks on DarkNet. It is older and apparently not being marketed, yet some hacker have it. Even though the breach happened years back, the data still has value. People often rarely change their password. Similar Mega Breach data from prior breaches at LinkdIn and Tumblr, was being bought, sold and traded on DarkNet markets.

Click on this Link to visit Troy Hunt’s site. He was sent the hacked data from a supporter of “Have I Been Pwned?” site. Troy then found his own account data and also his wife’s account data and proceeded to confirm that the Dropbox Mega-Breach was real.

Venclexta (Venetoclax) granted U.S. FDA approval for the treatment of patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

Venclexta (Venetoclax) is the first FDA-approved treatment that targets the B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) protein, which supports cancer cell growth and is over-expressed in many patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL).

The patient must have been previously treated with at least one other approved treatment protocol without success. Venclexta (Venetoclax) may be the Holy Mary drug to try when everything else failed.

Patients on the Venclexta (Venetoclax) regime must be monitored as their can be severe side effects. During Human Trails a number of patients developed upper respiratory issues such as Pneumonia.

Patients also have to maintain a level of hydration – 1.5 to 2 liters per day. If averse symptoms arise then hydration may be have to be added intravenously.

I think the biggest issue to patients getting access to this drug, is that the reported cost of the drug is approx $100,000 US per year.

Speak with your Oncologist or other Cancer Secialist, about Venclexta (Venetoclax), if you have diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL).

Is the Universe a Simulation? 2016 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate.

Since Time does not exist (yes that is true), the Hypothesis of what we consider to be our life being a Simulation, is possible.

What strikes me is that events occur in life and can repeat, giving one a chance to handle the event differently.

Timelines are predefined. When your timeline ends, you leave the simulation. An American female was in the Eaton Centre (Toronto) food court. Suddenly she felt ill and went outside. As soon as she left, a guy with a gun entered the food court and went to the spot where she had been sitting and started shooting people. Had she not left, she would have been shot dead.

About a month later, after returning back to the US, this same woman went to see the latest Batman Movie. As the movie started, a guy with a gun entered the theatre and started shooting people. She was shot dead. This is fact.

This also fits into the hypothesis that Timelines are predefined – ie programed into the simulation where we think we exist.

Upgrade to Windows 10 stalled at 99%

Photo courtesy of https://85ideas.com/freebies/best-hd-windows-wallpapers-for-your-desktop/

I tried to Upgrade a desktop to Windows 10 from Windows 7. It continued until it hit 99% complete and  stayed there. Rebooted and tried again and got the same result.

Checked on the internet and a Microsoft site suggested to uninstall all your Security software – Antivirus and Firewall as these may be preventing the completion.

Another non-Microsoft site suggested to disable Windows 7 updates (in control panel). I did that but it seems that the upgrade would never have gotten to 99%, if the Windows 7 Updates were the problem. I suspect that it was the Security Software was conflicting with the Windows 10 security software.

So I disabled Windows 7 updates. I uninstalled the firewall. I uninstalled the Antivirus. Restarted the Windows 10 upgrade. It worked.

There is also apparently a way to do the upgrade with a Windows 10 disk – via an ISO file download. I did not try that because if you mess up and end up doing a “clean install”, you may not get a “free” upgrade.

As for security, Windows 10 installs it’s own security software. I will check into how good it is and will probably install my own selected software.

Note, before you do the upgrade make sure that you have a backup or an image backup of your Windows 7 in case things go very wrong with the Windows 10 Upgrade. I used a free software program called System GoBack Free from Easeus. Click on this link to visit their web page.

Note that the free Upgrade to Windows 10 offer expires on July 29 2016. Click on this link to visit Microsoft’s website for more details about the Windows 10 Upgrade.

Hope this helps.

NOTE: I will shortly post about improving the Privacy of the Windows 10 install.

Balmuda Toaster $414.60 US via Amazon.com. Yes they have stock.

The Balmuda Toaster is made in Japan.Years back the Japanese learned to be innovative. At one time Radios and Televisions were produced in the USA. The Japanese created better, more functional and easier to use products. Today, you will not find a USA made Television in any America home.

The Balumda Toaster is another example of Japanese innovation. There is a three month waiting list at Japanese retailers, who sell this item. Why? Because it is likely the best Toaster available.

The Balmuda Toaster uses both Steam and Low heat, which does not dry out the item being toasted. Then at the very end the heat is raised to crispen the outer surface.

In Japan they do not sell the pop-up variety of Toasters. Their Toasters lay flat and have a door and trays. That makes more sense since it makes it easier to clean.

By using Steam while toasting an item on low heat the item comes out smelling and tasting like it just came out of Bakers oven.

I was surprised (ok maybe not) that one could acquire one via Amazon.com. Amazon is the best thing that ever happened to retail. Great product variety. Great prices. A trusted retailer. The Balmuda Toaster is being sold by ORIDURU from JAPAN via amazon.com. Shipping is apparently free. ORIDURU from JAPAN has a 100% positive rating from past purchasers.

The price is not cheap. But then this apparently sells for 22,900 YEN which is a huge amount for a Toaster, even in Japan. Yet their production is sold out. In Japan, one would have to wait 3 month to get one.

So the price at Amazon.com is $414.60 US for the Black coloured model,  as of today (subject to change without notice by Amazon). Yes they have stock. My suggestion would be to grab one, your morning toasted Bagel or Croissant will taste like you just brought it home fresh from a Bake Shop.
