01) Sega Entering The Console Market? Meet Spartan!


“A project started by fans has started to accelerate very quickly. Approaching a petition size of nearly 35,000 signatures, they are now in the midst of developing and bringing a new console to market that will target 4K gaming. They still appear to need Sega’s approval and branding, however the current situation looks promising for Sega fans.

What is the Sega Spartan? Nothing. Literally Nothing. | RGT 85:


NO Sega Is NOT Making A New Console! – Project Spartan Rant:


Wouldn’t it be neat?

Of the Sega systems I own…the Genesis is lovely…the Sega CD was interesting, but senseless, unsupported and uninspiring [most of the game library already existed on cartridge!]…the Saturn was nice, but unsupported and lacking in a game library…and the Dreamcast is just great!

While I did have a long head start with Sega [and Nintendo]…once Sony hit the scene, everything else became secondary…even if still well loved, wanted and valued.

I’d love to see a new Sega system…even though I’m not prepared to dump a lot of money into new consoles.

…But, as they say…Sega isn’t what we remember it to be…And that’s really sad. They are not their own business entity, anymore…They cannot make these kinds of decisions, on their own.

How the $11.3M Verdict Changed the Way We Use the Internet (HCI, 2009), co-authored by the late John Dozier, one of the country’s leading Internet attorneys, documents that legal battle while also offering prescriptive advice. Since then, her name and voice have become synonymous with helping others who have been victims of online abuse as well as educating people of all ages about the importance of good digital citizenship and protecting their online reputation.

Georgia lawmaker: Can people with HIV be ‘legally’ quarantined?…

01) Georgia lawmaker: Can people with HIV be ‘legally’ quarantined?

“A Georgia state representative — who is also an anesthesiologist and the wife of the former federal Health and Human Services secretary — asked at a public hearing Tuesday about the legality of quarantining HIV patients to stop the spread of the virus that causes AIDS.

[…]

The LGBQT advocacy group GLAAD on Friday demanded an apology from Price.

“We have come a long way in how we understand and talk about HIV as a nation, and comments like those made by Georgia State Representative Betty Price fly in the face of that progress, and of basic decency,” the group’s president, Sarah Kate Ellis, said in a written statement.

It is “reprehensible” that the comments were made by a physician and a lawmaker, Ellis added.

[…]

The CDC estimates 1 in 7 people who have HIV don’t know they are infected. Those carriers can then unwittingly infect their sexual partners or, in the case of drug users, individuals with whom they share needles or syringes.”

Since the video is not working…I cannot seem to get an original context, in which the original question was posed…

Something else strikes me here, though.

AIDs is a very touchy subject for us sexual minorities…most especially us homosexual ones…It’s fair to say, none of us likes what the AIDs epidemic has done to us, as a minority and as a community…both directly, and indirectly.

Is it wrong of me to say…that I don’t like the politically correct monster, that so much of the LGBTQ-etc community has become?…

…Am I the only one who asks, why groups like GLAAD believe “we don’t have to confront these questions, anymore”?…or, seemingly, presume that some forms of dialogue are “below them”?

…Why is GLAAD’s sense of outrage, and demand for an apology, newsworthy?

…Has GLAAD become so big headed, that it’s only focus is on the public image of certain sexual minorities, while shaming anything that might potentially taint them in any way?

It seems to me…a group like GLAAD should have enough resources, competence and standing, that they could muster up something far more potent, than some demand for an apology…

These types of incidents are excellent opportunities to educate the public, after all…

Is shaming someone into giving an apology, honestly going to do anything of value?

If people like Betty Price have genuine questions…you know what?…they should be asked, openly and honestly…and they should be open to the response they get.

Only people and groups who fear the findings surrounding any specific issue, act to stop other people from asking the questions…

GLAAD should not be in any position to fear this question…should it?

There is also another point…

HIV and AIDS still exist…They are far less deadly, than they were when they first became known…but they’ve lingered on for decades…and they are genuine social problems for everyone, sexual minority or not.

Just because you can live a reasonably long and healthy life after being infected, doesn’t mean that they are no longer a problem.

When discussing what to do about the uncontrolled spread of this disease…it’s not necessarily out of line, to discuss a quarantine policy…or discuss whether or not such a policy is even on the table…

Would such a policy pass in the U.S.?…Not likely…Not openly, anyway…Though it almost certainly exists, for a state of emergency…

…But you know what?…If there are people infected with this…and they’re spreading it, with no awareness or intent to stop…somebody needs to intervene…

…Perhaps GLAAD should save it’s outrage, for cases where people aren’t being responsible with safeguarding their infectious diseases?

I’m tired of the outrage culture we live in…

…I’m tired of the groups, who think their own public image trumps everything else.

DNC Update: Tom Perez Rehires Donna Brazile, Forces Out Progressives…

01) DNC Update: Tom Perez Rehires Donna Brazile, Forces Out Progressives


“Details emerged about a progressive purge at the DNC by Chairman Tom Perez. Additionally, we see a return of Donna Brazile—one of the DNC operatives that admitted she cheated Bernie Sanders during the 2016 Democratic Party primaries. It’s a shameless move that shows Perez isn’t interested in uniting the Party, and as a result, he should resign.”

01) Deep Space – The Largest Black Holes In The Universe


“A black hole is a region of the spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing—not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from inside it. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass can deform spacetime to form a black hole.[2][3] The boundary of the region from which no escape is possible is called the event horizon. Although the event horizon has an enormous effect on the fate and circumstances of an object crossing it, no locally detectable features appear to be observed. In many ways, a black hole acts like an ideal black body, as it reflects no light. Moreover, quantum field theory in curved spacetime predicts that event horizons emit Hawking radiation, with the same spectrum as a black body of a temperature inversely proportional to its mass. This temperature is on the order of billionths of a Kelvin for black holes of stellar mass, making it essentially impossible to observe.”

24 & ready to die – The Economist…

01) 24 & ready to die – The Economist


“Emily is 24 years old and physically healthy. But she wants her doctors to end her life.

24 & ready to die is the tragic case of Emily, a young Belgian woman granted the right to a doctors help to end her own life because of her persistent, severe depression.

Belgium and the Netherlands are the only countries which permit doctor-assisted dying for those experiencing unbearable mental suffering.

Several American states allow doctor-assisted dying for the terminally ill, including, from next year, California.

Majorities in 13 of the 15 countries polled by The Economist and IPSOS MORI in June support doctor-assisted dying.

The Economist has championed doctor-assisted dying in articles and editorials since the 1990s, including most recently a cover story in June this year. The Economist ran a video advert in London in September and Berlin asking: Could you live a life like this? to encourage people to start talking about the right to die.

Support for doctor-assisted dying is growing globally. Bills have recently been debated in Britain and Germany, and a ruling in Canada Supreme Court means that country will soon have legal doctor-assisted dying too. California governor signed an assisted-dying bill into law in October.

A recent poll by Ipsos-MORI for The Economist found majorities in support of doctor-assisted dying laws in 13 out of 15 countries surveyed including the United States, Britain, Australia, Canada and Germany. But only in Belgium and the Netherlands were majorities in favour of allowing doctor-assisted dying in cases of unbearable suffering that is mental, rather than physical.

The Economist supports the introduction of legalised doctor-assisted dying around the world. Zanny Minton Beddoes, editor-in-chief of The Economist, says: For The Economist, the case for allowing doctor-assisted dying relies on personal choice and individual autonomy. Our liberal values and respect for human dignity mean that for this paper, doctor-assisted dying is a cause worth championing.”

I really disagree with this form of assisted suicide…though, I do understand the mental place where this young lady was at…It’s an incredibly dark one…

I lived with this problem, for much of my life…I never cut myself…But depression and thoughts of suicide started for me, when I was…thirteen…fourteen…

…A large portion of my life was personally harrowing…And the worst part, was never being able to pull out of the bleakness and dead energy funk…This is psychological hell, when it stretches on for years, relentless.

…I finally beat this thing, when hitting rock bottom…after everything had been sapped out of me…

…I came back, triumphantly, as “Steve Diamond”…The man who would not be hurt, any longer…

…My anger and fury, made me live once again.
