    • The Attack In Ottawa will be used to justify losing more rights
      Prime Minister Harper pretty much confirmed it: ‘Our laws and police powers need to be strengthened’ Yup.  Never let a crisis go to waste. I’m very sad that MPs and their staff were scared, and I’m sadder that a soldier lost his life.  But one attack does not justify increasing the police state.  However, if [...]

Saturday afternoon “couch” reading

Well. We’ve lived through another week and arrived at one of my least favorite days of the year. Yes, it’s time to “fall back” — I WISH it was as easy as falling back…. But, it seems like it takes me a whole week before my brain aligns with the new time.

What You Need to Know About the Daylight Savings Shift

 

For the tech obsessed, Daylight Saving Time gets a bit more complicated each year as our pockets and desks fill up with more and more tech gadgets. And Congress hasn’t made the shift any easier. The 2005 Energy Policy Act changed the start date of Daylight Saving Time beginning in 2007. This affected the auto-updating clocks on some tech products purchased before that date, including operating systems. Hopefully everything runs smoothly for you by now, but just in case, here are some things to consider:

• Some gadgets, like your phone, will be automatically updated by syncing with your cellular network.

• Others, like some iPods, base their clocks on whatever time your PC says it is.

• Unconnected devices like your watch or clock radio will likely need to be updated manually.

• Still others, like your computer, are hopefully patched to correctly update at the appropriate time, but may not be.


I have a feeling we haven’t heard the last of THIS story …. I had more questions with almost every detail : Continue reading

Saturday is for Sisterhood

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton receives a Hongi (Maori Greeting) during a welcome ceremony at Parliament on November 4, 2010 in Wellington, New Zealand. (H/T to stacyx at secretaryclinton.wordpress.com)

Good morning, everyone. Wonk the Vote here, with my Saturday offerings. First up, some odds and ends from down under in New Zealand, where Secretary Clinton has been traveling the past few days. She fielded a couple questions yesterday about the chances of her running for president again. The following tidbit was from an interview on Friday, with Guyon Espiner of TV New Zealand (link goes to the Foggy Bottom transcript):

QUESTION: A final question: You’re in a country which has had two female prime ministers. You’re heading to a country –

SECRETARY CLINTON: (Laughter.)

QUESTION: — that has a female prime minister. Is your country ready for a female president?

SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, I hope so. It should be and –

QUESTION: Could that be you?

SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, not me, but it will be someone. And it is nice coming to countries that have already proven that they can elect a woman to the highest governing positions that they have in their systems.
