Wanna Be A Digital Ghost?

With the recent exposure of Facebook and their tinkering with people’s privacy there has been a new wave of people looking for ways to be not so exposed on the web……

The UK’s Guardian had a feature that may help those that would like to become a digital ghost……

Early one morning last year, before the birds were up, Tio Bucard, his wife and children skittered down the path from their home in a tiny French village towards a black SUV, its engine running. As Bucard drove to the local airport, he checked his rear-view mirror every few moments to see that he was still being followed by Frank Ahearn, a 54-year-old American with a peppery beard and wraparound sunglasses. Bucard (not his real name) had met Ahearn for the first time only the day before, in the lobby of a Monaco hotel close to Bucard’s office. Now he had entrusted his family’s safety to this former drug addict from the Bronx. Bucard pulled into the airport’s long-term car park. Then he and the family transferred into Ahearn’s hired SUV. As they pulled on to the motorway, Ahearn joked whether, while the family was in hiding, he could look after Bucard’s £5,000 watch, a Bentley Flying B No 3.

I cannot say that this will work just an FYI for anyone that is trying to become a ghost on-line.
relax and
Think about it…do you trust the security measures of your social media?  Me?  I do not trust any of them and Facebook leads the way as unreliable…….
My Sunday is waiting for me to relax….so I say go for it….be well, be safe….chuq

Let’s Go To The Lesson Plan

I have been bitching about the direction our educational system is going…..it sucks.

First, there is an uptick in home schooling basically because of all t3 school shootings parents want their kids safe and they believe that home schooling will give them that safety.  (this is the subject of a future post)

Also I have been reading about just how bad the education has become in some of the private schools….the science is bad, the history is laughable and all other aspects are getting worse with each passing year.

For instance a recent study illustrates why our children are getting dumber……

Some private schools in Florida that rely on public funding teach students that dinosaurs and humans lived together, that God’s intervention prevented Catholics from dominating North America and that slaves who “knew Christ” were better off than free men who did not.

The lessons taught at these schools come from three Christian publishing companies whose textbooks are popular on many of about 2,000 campuses that accept, and often depend on, nearly $1 billion in state scholarships, or vouchers.

At the Orlando Sentinel’s request, educators from Florida colleges and school districts reviewed textbooks and workbooks from these publishers, looking at elementary reading and math, middle school social studies and high school biology materials.

They found numerous instances of distorted history and science lessons that are outside mainstream academics. The books denounce evolution as untrue, for example, and one shows a cartoon of men and dinosaurs together, telling students the Biblical Noah likely brought baby dinosaurs onto his ark. The science books, they added, seem to discourage students from doing experiments or even asking questions.


All in all this is shoddy education and a disservice to the children that want to learn…..there is NOTHING accurate in these textbooks…..

I am glad I was a public education kid…the textbooks may have been old but at least they were as accurate as they could be in those “dark days” of 60 years ago.

These people are helping make a nation of morons.

Our children deserve the best education the society can provide….this story ain’t it.
