Hawaii ‘ballistic missile threat’ alert to phones was false alarm, officials say

Hawaii is a fuxated jambalaya of race mixing.

It’s an extreme liberal state that should probably go back to being its own country, ruled by a primitive native king.

Today, somebody, not yet identified, made a big mistake.

It’s what you get with a third world people. They loved their guy, Obama, who let the nuclear missile threat fester and did nothing.

They deserve to live in terror until they admit that Trump is right about Little Rocket Man and everything else.

Excerpt from NBC News

Hawaiians were thrown into a panic Saturday morning after an emergency alert was sent warning of a ballistic missile threat. But emergency officials said minutes later it was a false alarm caused when someone pushed the wrong button, leading to an uproar over how such an error — with potentially dangerous consequences — could occur.

Let’s Ride The Pioneer Zephyr, 1934 (Educational Video)

Negros, Mexicans, and Asians care only about racial politics. They want more than their fair share of the pie and they’ve successfully used government to get it.

The white race cares primarily about building something–leaving a legacy of greatness, much as the ancient Egyptians did with the pyramids.

Take three minutes to go dfor a ride on the Zephyr in 1934. It’s an example of a beautiful and useful object produced by the mind of the white man.

Read more at Wikipedia. The determination of the white man to overcome all obstacles is much in evidence in the story of the design and construction of the Zephyr.

The Zephyr sits in a Chicago museum today.

Black Female Apple Diversity Chief Forced Out After Saying White Men Can Also Be ‘Diverse’

An ominous message has been sent to women of color by Apple. Get with the program or get out.

Zerohedge

Silicon Valley’s disdain for its mostly white, mostly male tech workforce has reached absurd new heights.

The New York Post [4] is reporting that, after just six months on the job, Apple Diversity Chief Denise Young Smith, who was named vice president of diversity and inclusion in May, has resigned her post after making a “controversial” comment last month during a summit in Bogota, Colombia.

What was Young’s crime? She insinuated that “diversity” can still exist among a group of white men because of their different life experiences.

“There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blond men in a room and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation,” the inaugural diversity chief said.

DENISE YOUNG SMITH. SHE TOLD AN UNWANTED TRUTH.

“Diversity is the human experience,” she said, according to Quartz. “I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT.”

That’s right: Young, who is – for the record – a black woman, has been forced out of Apple because her views on diversity were too inclusive.

As the Post pointed out, Young’s comments appeared to defend Apple’s overwhelmingly white and male leadership at a time when the company’s makeup is markedly uneven. This begs the question: What, exactly, was she defending them from?

Young, a 20-year Apple veteran who previously served as the company’s head of worldwide human resources (a senior level position), was later forced to apologize for her remarks, telling Apple staff that her comments “were not representative of how I think about diversity or how Apple sees it.”

“For that, I’m sorry,” she said in an email. “More importantly, I want to assure you Apple’s view and our dedication to diversity has not changed.”

“We deeply believe that diversity drives innovation,” an Apple spokesman told TechCrunch in a statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome an accomplished leader like Christie Smith to help us continue the progress we’ve made toward a more diverse workplace.”

In 2017, only 3 percent of Apple’s leaders were black, and women held just 23 percent of tech jobs, according to Fortune. Female leadership stood at 29 percent, Apple said.

“Meaningful change takes time,” the company said in its diversity report. “We’re proud of our accomplishments, but we have much more work to do.”

Smith will leave the company at the end of the year. Taking over as VP of inclusion and diversity will be Christie Smith, who spent 17 years as a principal at Deloitte.

She is also a white woman.

Like the writer at Zerohedge said, the word “absurd” best explains this insanity. Denise Young Smith simply wasn’t anti-white and that wasn’t good enough for Apple.

Out of curiosity I looked up a photo of Miss Smith’s replacement, “white” Christie Smith. OK, is she Jewish or not? Lesbian or normal?

Facebook Wants Your Nude Photos

Keep your nekkid pictures safe, ladies. Send them to Mark Zuckerberg.

You can trust Mark. He’s a Jew and we know how morally upstanding Jews are.

Oh, and you won’t mind the CIA having your nudes for national security reasons. They wouldn’t want to send the wrong person to a FEMA camp so make sure you help them out to the point where they know every square inch of your body.

To combat ‘revenge porn’, Facebook is now asking [4] users to send in their nudes, to test a new anti-revenge porn technology.

A pilot program is currently underway in Australia, where one in five women aged 18-45 and one in four Indigenous Australians are victims. It appears, Facebook made the right choice to test out Australian users before a much wider and or global rollout occurs.

Australian Government, e-Safety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant [6] said victims of “image-based abuse” would be able to censor images before posted on Facebook’s platform(s).

Grant further said, “we see many scenarios where maybe photos or videos were taken consensually at one point, but there was not any sort of consent to send the images or videos more broadly.”

According to the Daily Mail, [4] sending your nudes to Facebook will stop the so-called ‘revenge porn’ phenomenon:

The trial requires users to send naughty pictures to themselves via Facebook Messenger.

Ms Grant said: ‘It would be like sending yourself your image in email, but obviously this is a much safer, secure end-to-end way of sending the image without sending it through the ether.’

Once the image has been sent, Facebook will then ‘hash’ the image – create a digital fingerprint or link.

Ms Grant explained: ‘They’re not storing the image, they’re storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies.

‘So if somebody tried to upload that same image, which would have the same digital footprint or hash value, it will be prevented from being uploaded.’

If the technology works , the photo should never appear on Facebook.

Antigone Davis, head of global safety at Facebook, said ”the safety and well-being of the Facebook community is our top priority”. And to provide such safety, Facebook wants your nude pictures.

She also added, “as part of our continued efforts to better detect and remove content that violates our community standards, we’re using image matching technology to prevent non-consensual intimate images from being shared on Facebook. These tools, developed in partnership with global safety experts, are one example of how we’re using new technology to keep people safe and prevent harm”.

We ask one simple question: What Rights Does Facebook Have to Your Photos?

In Facebook’s terms of service: “You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook”

…but Facebook gets a “non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license” to your photos.

* * *

Conclusion- don’t take nudes and problem solved. Otherwise, some creepy techie in Silicon Valley along with artificial intelligence will be admiring what you do on a personal level. SkyNet called it wants your nude pictures.

Just remember my lovelies. Facebook could never be hacked. Your photos could never end up on a porn site. It’s all safe.

Your dad does enjoy your nude selfies, doesn’t he?

Twitter Makes It Official, Ups Character Limit to 280

Since I only use Twitter to Tweet each new post and to insert relevant material in posts, the move by Twitter to keep its users online and engaged for longer periods of time doesn’t affect me much.

In the grand scheme of life, this is an insignificant change. I hope that Master Tweeter Trump is able to adjust and keep the pot stirred up.

Excerpt from the Washington Post via NOLA

It’s official. We’re going to 280. Now every Twitter user – from first-day users to President Donald Trump – will have twice the room to share their thoughts.

Twitter on Tuesday confirmed that it is doubling its iconic character count for good, after a month or so of tests trying out longer tweets.

While many Twitter users reacted with horror to the tests, Twitter said in a blog post that the higher limit made people more likely to tweet, left fewer than 1 percent of users hungry for more room and increased “engagement” – its umbrella term for likes, replies and retweets.

(For those having trouble visualizing the difference, the second paragraph of this article has 140 characters; the third has 280.)

Twitter originally hit on the 140-character limit as a nod to the character limits placed on early text messages, when it was founded in 2007. SMS messages had a 160-character limit, and Twitter wanted users to be able to post messages via phone, with enough room for a username. It became a hallmark of the service – an encouragement to craft short, sweet messages and contribute to the free-flow of conversation that became Twitter’s main identifying feature.

Following an age of blogging, when lengthy rants or emo contemplation lit up the likes of LiveJournal or Xanga, the move to bite-sized thoughts felt different. But as Twitter expanded its ambitions to become more of an online town square, it became an important place to discuss complex ideas.

The company said in September that it was testing a new upper limit because languages such as English couldn’t pack as much information into 140-characters as other languages, such as Chinese, Japanese or Korean, which use can use characters that denote whole words. (These languages will retain the 140-character limit, Twitter said.)

Many people had pointed out that 280 characters, despite what chief executive Jack Dorsey said in his own longer tweet announcing the change, just doesn’t lend itself to the same focus. It’s somehow too long to be brief, and still too brief to be meaningful. A heavily retweeted image following the announcement showed Dorsey’s long tweet announcing the change edited down to fit in 139 characters.

Before the tests – which were limited to a few users, but easy to participate in thanks to third-party tools – roughly 9 percent of tweets ran right up against the 140-character limit. During the 280-character tests, that number fell significantly, according to a graph of English-only tweets provided by Twitter.
