JohnWickIs Hollywood running out of themes, plots and ideas?  Another bad ass comes out of retirement to kill, kill, kill.  The reason is usually because some family member (mostly the wife and/or kid) is killed or wronged somehow and vengeance is mine, saith who?  Bruce Willis, Denzel Washington, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Liam Neeson and Harrison Ford to name a few.  The other scenario is the country can’t survive without this former agent’s skill base.  John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves,  was very entertaining but nothing new.  I think John Wick may have piled up more bodies than anyone else but it was that familiar violence of a killing machine that no one can catch or stop.  So there you have it, after hearing the plot, you just have to sit back and enjoy all the killing.  There’s lots of action and many different ways to kill someone but overall, it consist of the plot and…

The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here

The Obama administration’s anger is “red-hot” over Israel’s settlement policies, and the Netanyahu government openly expresses contempt for Obama’s understanding of the Middle East. Profound changes in the relationship may be coming.
The other day I was talking to a senior Obama administration official about the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House and the State Department the most. “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit,” this official said, referring to the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, by his nickname.

Victorian Revellers at London’s ‘Appy ‘Ampstead

It was the opening of the railway station in 1860 that made Hampstead Heath, a 790-acre rambling open space north of London, accessible to the many poorer people who lived beyond walking distance of its borders.

The Heath was acquired as a public open space in 1871, and additional land was purchased in 1888 and 1889, respectively. Shortly after the first acquisition, the Bank Holidays Act of 1871 established four national day-long holidays: Easter Day, Boxing Day and the first Mondays in May and August. 

The Heath hosted a fair on the May and August bank holidays, and  ‘Appy ‘Ampstead became part of national conversation in the 1890s, celebrated in song and cartoons.

Ola medanjathu – Woven coconut leaf, as the roofing material for Olappura

There is a saying like ‘Everything in a coconut tree is useful’. It gives coconuts. The tender coconuts are used for quenching the thirst. The leaves are used for roofing, partitions. The trunk is used for furniture and firewood. From the coconuts we get coconut water, coconut and coconut oil. The skin of the coconuts are used to make coir products. After filtering out the coconut oil and sometimes coconut milk (used widely in Kerala dishes), the cakes are used as cattle feed. Some coconut trees are used to filter out toddy, which is a local drink with mild alcoholic content. In the olden days, every house hold used to lease out a couple of coconut trees for toddy tapping and in return the landlord got fresh toddy everyday. That was the secret of their energy. The life of a coconut tree is almost the same as a human being…

Whole-Gene Scan Analyzes Mystery Illnesses in Kids

A new kind of genetic test that analyzes all of a person’s genes can provide a diagnosis about a quarter of the time for patients whose conditions have baffled doctors, scientists reported Saturday. And for young children with mysterious developmental delays, the test gives a diagnosis more than 40 percent of the time.

The test is called whole-exome sequencing, and it looks at all 20,000 or so genes in the human body. It’s not a whole genome sequence because it leaves out DNA that’s not classified as a gene. But such tests provide a good map of the so-called protein coding sequences.

 It was a relief for Audrey Lapidus of Los Angeles, whose baby son Calvin seemed just fine at first. But at 6 months, an osteopath suggested genetic testing. “She said he had some very interesting facial features,” Lapidus told NBC News. Other…

Psalm 91 Good News Translation (GNT)

God Our Protector

91 Whoever goes to the Lord for safety,
    whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty,
can say to him,
    “You are my defender and protector.
    You are my God; in you I trust.”
He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers
    and from all deadly diseases.
He will cover you with his wings;
    you will be safe in his care;
    his faithfulness will protect and defend you.
You need not fear any dangers at night
    or sudden attacks during the day
    or the plagues that strike in the dark
    or the evils that kill in daylight.

If the last ‘tech’-related thing you did was send a message via Snapchat, it’s time to rethink what’s possible.

Whether they’re achieving nuclear fusion in a secondary school classroom or constructing a single-person submarine from drainage pipes and a recycled skylight hatch, young innovators are blowing our minds by turning their big ideas into realities.

The coolest part? Most of them aren’t even old enough to legally drink! We’ve partnered with Paramount’s Interstellar to highlight nine tech innovators under 21 who can inspire us all.
