…Obama Proposes Surprisingly Strong Net Neutrality Laws…


“Published on Nov 10, 2014
“U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday said Internet service providers should be regulated more like public utilities to make sure they grant equal access to all content providers, touching off intense protests from cable and telecoms companies and Republican lawmakers.

Obama’s detailed statement on the issue of “net neutrality,” a platform in his 2008 presidential campaign, was a rare intervention by the White House into the policy setting of an independent agency.

Shares of major Internet service providers Comcast Corp (CMCSA.O) and Time Warner Cable Inc (TWC.N) fell sharply after Obama said ISPs should be reclassified to face stricter regulations and banned from striking paid “fast lane” deals with content companies.”* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.”

Faces of Time

01) Dreams [strings]


02) Memory


03) Out There


04) JD5 [strings]


05) DreamChaser [piano]


06) Emigdau [guitar]


07) Panorama


08) Beauty and the Beast [strings]


The running time of this album is 24 minutes and 9 seconds…which makes this the third longest album I’ve released, thus far.

In terms of track quality, I think this is the most solid collection I’ve released to date…There is no weak track here. There are a lot of new releases on this one…I hope you enjoy them.

01) Dreams [strings] – An old recording…but one of my favorites.

02) Memory – A new release. I’ve been setting on this one for a while. It is nice.

03) Out There – “Space Music”…While this has already been released, it is relatively new.

04) JD5 [strings] – A new release. I love this recording.

05) DreamChaser [piano] – A new release. I love this music. This is the piano version.

06) Emigdau [guitar] – A new release. Hands down, a top favorite out of everything I’ve managed to crank out, thus far. There are some rivals, which will be released in the future.

07) Panorama – More “Space Music”…But I got a good bit more “hands on” involved, with this track.

08) Beauty and the Beast [strings] – A new release. The last version I recorded of this song. My milking of “Beauty and the Beast” is done. 🙂

Minor Attracted Persons Survey…

…Minor Attracted Persons Survey…

“This study is being conducted by B4U-ACT and the Psychiatry Department of Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City.

We are conducting this study because we feel that there are serious limitations in the current scientific research about adults who are sexually attracted to children. While there is a fair amount of scientific research on adults who have been arrested for and/or convicted of sexual offenses against children, there is little to no research on minor attracted persons (MAPS) who successfully refrain from sexually engaging with children and who fully live within the law. Because of this, the mental health community has a very narrow and biased view of minor attracted persons, essentially equating sexual feelings with illegal behavior and with any of the psychological and biological traits that may go along with it. This has serious legal, social and political implications for individuals who, through no fault of their own, experience persistent sexual attraction to underage children.

B4U-ACT is committed to deepening the mutual understanding and communication between the MAP community and the mental health community. While B4U-ACT is committed to living within the law and protecting children from harm, we aim to reduce the crushing stigma and associated psychological and social harm experienced by minor attracted persons. We firmly believe that solid, fair and high-quality scientific research is the best way to replace stereotype with fact, and to simultaneously promote the welfare of MAPs, children and society at large.”

If you are so inclined, then feel free to participate in this project.
