elderly care

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I plan to write in my hand writing a thank you to my sister for caring for our mother. It’s fresh on my mind how fun the elderly can be, so I’m inspired to thank my sister. Does my note arrive at a moment when my mother’s care if more burden than pleasure or do I risk expressing thanks for her hardship at a moment when she’s experiencing the pleasure of caring. It would have been odd for me to get a thank you for caring for my young children, and my sister may be struck by the oddity of me thanking her for doing what she can’t consider not doing. Kazuko is Hana’s mom and I’ve been with her daily for two weeks. She’s resting near me now. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

duper’s delight

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Two related vids google-chanced their way into my feed: ONE: an MIT researcher on voice analysis TED Talk TWO: TED talk lie spotters. Google saw how the subjects are related even though both are not about lying. It prompted my to ask Hana’s brother to name famous American liers, and I won’t post his list, but the conversation pointed me to: Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon, Dick Cheney, Lance Armstrong, Bernie Madoff, and OJ. It’s hard to imagine any American omitting Bill Clinton, and the presenter did not omit him. “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” has many of the known clues of deception: ONE: the formality of, “sexual relations” and the distance of “that woman”. A documentary of Lance Armstrong enshrined him in my book as the best American liar, because he was convincing rather than fidgety and sweaty like Richard Nixon. The TED presenter also introduced, “dupers delight” when the liar can’t restrain joy the moment of confirmation that lie was accepted as truth. Her pic of OJ’s duper’s delight is revealing. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

shit fuck dick

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« If I’m not active I hear no rap. Passively rap is censored from my life, and Cardi B’s version of “Be Careful” on SNL revealed to me how some censorship forces are trying to protect me from hearing: “shit” “nigga” “fuck” and “dick”. Knowing Cardi B’s song before hearing in on SNL made it seemed strange she could sing the song without foul words. Younger people in the target audience get a regular does of rap, but someone and something is protecting my virgin ears from what might hurt me. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

same-sex arousal

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I tapped on a TED talk about organsm research, which was covered by a woman with a history of scientific study of organisms both human and pigs. One take away: sexual arousal is voluntary. Voluntary refers to the processes of our body that happen without command. Blinking eyes is one of the weird ones that is both voluntary and involuntary, because we can blink our eyes deliberately or it happens without conscious effort aka voluntary. Sexual arousal is voluntary. In other words humans get aroused by arousing stimuli and not by choice. A heterosexual negatively reacting to homosexuality is attaching negative to a voluntary reaction. Sexual arousal happens with a heterosexual and he or she might see their attraction to the opposite sex as right and good and the opposite as wrong and bad, which is bull shit. The heterosexual who attaches right and good to their opposite-sex arousal is wrong for doing it. The hetero can’t explain why this arousal that volunteers within them happens and they can’t command it to happen, so they’re wronge to credit themselves with being right and good and they’re offensive for attaching wrong and bad to same-sex arousal. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

factual reporting

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Ecco chamber is a phrased used to describe how people favor agreeable news sources, so it’s a fundamental need to determine if we’re getting the story, or just being fed an agreeable version of the story. The Manafort trial is covered by so many news sources, and each day the courtroom is full, so it makes a good study. Dear kind readers: The google news app has a feature that I trust can be found with other ereaders: “other sources icon”. By tapping this icon one can see all the sources that covered the same story. My tip that follows shows how to use this feature with the multimedia Manafort-trial coverage to objectively compare news sources. Sincerely, Tom Doody. NPR is a good example of a writer and editorial staff who reports as though their in the same courtroom as others who write an objective account of the day. By comparing NPR or other source that reads like their reporter has witnessed the same event, one begins to see how CNN and Fox sensationalize. Fox news embellished Gates affair as a way to show a weak case for Mueller, but the real net importance of Gate’s affair is whether or not Gates remains credible in the eyes of the jury. The more factual news sources reported how the affair was disclosed without embellishing. CNN is heavy on: ¿What does it mean for Trump? and ¿Is the President concerned? CNN’s questions are relevant, but for me in Europe just wanting to know: ¿What happened today? CNN’s Trump speculation detracts from factual reporting. Though I criticized both CNN and Fox here I have not read any noteworthy factual errors in their reporting. Instead I only fault the two news sources CNN and Fox for including in their coverage distracting nuance. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

NFL

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« NFL players are protesting again. While I think taking a knee is the best choice the raised fist is okay with me.

Ekajaya OJ Trump

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I don’t know what to think about Trump’s admission the Russia meeting in his home was about dirt on Hillary Clinton. That is until now. Hana got a message from the ferry company that cancelled one of our trips. She has opened a paypal dispute to get reimbursed, and the company said we cancelled, which is false, and can be proven with an email. The email will also show the ferry was cancelled for bad weather, which is a matter beyond the ferry company’s control, which a common sense of fairness would indicate shared financial burden is best, but “they lied”. They said it was our fault not the weather’s fault in their first response to the dispute. It’s like OJ’s famous low-seed LA freeway car chase. The crime of Nichol’s and Ron’s murders and the “crime” of a cancelled ferry can be investigate for truth, but the you-cancelled email and the low-speed car chase are irrelevant to the matter of the moment of the crime. It’s only a human sense of justice that says if you blame your ticket holder for cancellation, and later change your story to point to bad weather, then you weaken your case. It is also a human sense of justice that says, “OJ is guilty, because he ran”. The same is true for Trump. The facts of collusion must be determined, and his changing stories don’t the change the fact of his criminal status at the alleged moment he cooperated with Russians. Trump’s changing story does not make him more guilty it only makes him seem more guilty. The post “crime” actions of the ferry company, OJ, and Trump should be seen for what they are, “post-crime events”. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
