Logikblog – March 8, 2019

Another hour lost, Spring getting closer, but it still feels like Winter.  We will start keeping track of these disasters as they are costing us dearly.  Still transitioning a little bit.  ‘Jekyll Island’ will be up in its entirety.  We’ll also add some new real-life crime stories, relative dramas of the day, stock talk, and, a solid, strong effort to keep up on the Watches and headlines and Journal.  Getting there….,getting there….Have A Good Weekend.

Whoever whups it up the best for one minute, we’ll let them continue, or let loose the lions.

Last day of Black History Month. This is using the medium to promote the politics of division. It’s plain and simple. It’s always worth noting to me because we would be so well past this point if not for the promoters of race. Yes, promoting in the schools, the churches, the communities and on and on. And on and on. Using Hollyweird as a race promoter in the television shows, commercials, news and movies. Now tokenism has a different meaning between black folks and myself. Tokenism, to me, means that people of color are being put in numerous situations that put them in the public’s attention. But, these people are hand chosen by the demons and put in white peoples’ face to piss them off every time they hear about how racist they are. For black people, they see a solitary black person, or maybe two, and say, “oh, one black person, that’s tokenism.” That’s a double insult to white people because it was the NAACP and other black organizations that created the law that says they must be shown in all literature, brochures, shows, etc., or the facilitators can be sued. Then! They join in with the black folks calling it tokenism! Outrageous. Yes, Sigh-o-friggin’-nara to Black History Month. Instead, learn about how many race-based institutions there are in this country, ones that serve only their interests. The very definition of racism. This bad, bad, sinister, evil, maniacal lies must be exposed at every turn. They are EVIL, and the people in the fold belong to Satan. So, bye February, and watch soon for an article on the incredible hypocrisy of Frederick Douglass.

Quick and simple thoughts:  Gambling – Savor that one win. Two losses, back out.  It seems more often that you can’t take a few days without blowing off a few appts.  Colton’s as close to a virgin as I am to a Triathlete.  The meeting of the family is a dumb aspect of that type of show.  Cohen and Mueller are distractions and not newsworthy one iota.  People who don’t believe in man-made climate change should pay my insurance premiums.  If I see an ad without music, I’ll buy two. That’s all for now. It’s only Tuesday. Be good . Don’t get blown away.

On this day, something happened, but who cares?   Trump in Korea, Cohen in Washington, Whoopi in New York, Who cares?  What we care about is the blog, helping you make informed decisions, keeping up on the media, and getting things in order.  Some older stuff will be coming down so the whole Jekyll Island book can be put in place.  You can listen to it without thinking about it and you’ll still be mad by the end of the book.  You bin had.   So whatcha gonna do?   New Yorker, and WSJ updated, market updated during the day.  More goodies coming.  Thank you.

Republican, Democrat, Green, Socialist, blah, blah, blah.

February 13, 2019 Another great post by Monique LaBarr on the environment and healthy living.  We all need that this year.  Think healthy!  Think smart. Another great one by Andrew Gooding. Why so great? Andrew has undertaken an analysis of the book ‘The 5000 year Leap.’ Are our Republican politicians acting like Republicans? Are our Democrat politicians acting like Democrats? I’d say more like Stalinist Russia. They flipped their friggin’ minds. The new party is the Constitutional Party and I am a Constitutionalist. That’s a new word, add it to your dictionary. We have to go back to the core document, the very core. The perfect document. Then we must start to review each and every amendment, law, ambiguity and department because there have been traitors all along the way. That’s why there was such a need to get rid of Andrew Jackson. The American Revolution is not over. What could not be taken by force has been taken by stealth. We have, at this moment, almost completely capitulated to the enemy. Hence, to be a Constitutionalist is to know the war isn’t over. What was it the British wanted here? It was a tax, it was exclusivity to the Empire, and it was a Central Bank. How could two countries that fought 2 wars with one another be such good buds not very long after? Think about it. The face of the threat looks nicer, but it is even a worse threat now. It’s close to game over. Be a Constitutionalist.

Welcome to the Gutenberg Editor

Of Mountains & Printing Presses The goal of this new editor is to make adding rich content to WordPress simple and enjoyable. This whole post is composed of pieces of content—somewhat similar to LEGO bricks—that you can move around and interact with. Move your cursor around and you’ll notice the different blocks light up with outlines and arrows. Press the arrows to reposition blocks quickly, without fearing about losing things in the process of copying and pasting. What you are reading now is a text block, the most basic block of all. The text block has its own controls to be moved freely around the post… … like this one, which is right aligned. Headings are separate blocks as well, which helps with the outline and organization of your content. A Picture is worth a Thousand Words Handling images and media with the utmost care is a primary focus of the new editor. Hopefully, you’ll find aspects of adding captions or going full-width with your pictures much easier and robust than before. If your theme supports it, you’ll see the “wide” button on the image toolbar. Give it a try. Try selecting and removing or editing the caption, now you don’t have to be careful about selecting the image or other text by mistake and ruining the presentation. The Inserter Tool Imagine everything that WordPress can do is available to you quickly and in the same place on the interface. No need to figure out HTML tags, classes, or remember complicated shortcode syntax. That’s the spirit behind the inserter—the (+) button you’ll see around the editor—which allows you to browse all available content blocks and add them into your post. Plugins and themes are able to register their own, opening up all sort of possibilities for rich editing and publishing. Go give it a try, you may discover things WordPress can already add into your posts that you didn’t know about. Here’s a short list of what you can currently find there: Text & Headings Images & Videos Galleries Embeds, like YouTube, Tweets, or other WordPress posts. Layout blocks, like Buttons, Hero Images, Separators, etc. And Lists like this one of course 🙂 Visual Editing A huge benefit of blocks is that you can edit them in place and manipulate your content directly. Instead of having fields for editing things like the source of a quote, or the text of a button, you can directly change the content. Try editing the following quote: The editor will endeavour to create a new page and post building experience that makes writing rich posts effortless, and has “blocks” to make it easy what today might take shortcodes, custom HTML, or “mystery meat” embed discovery. Matt Mullenweg, 2017 The information corresponding to the source of the quote is a separate text field, similar to captions under images, so the structure of the quote is protected even if you select, modify, or remove the source. It’s always easy to add it back. Blocks can be anything you need. For instance, you may want to add a subdued quote as part of the composition of your text, or you may prefer to display a giant stylized one. All of these options are available in the inserter. You can change the amount of columns in your galleries by dragging a slider in the block inspector in the sidebar. Media Rich If you combine the new wide and full-wide alignments with galleries, you can create a very media rich layout, very quickly: Sure, the full-wide image can be pretty big. But sometimes the image is worth it. The above is a gallery with just two images. It’s an easier way to create visually appealing layouts, without having to deal with floats. You can also easily convert the gallery back to individual images again, by using the block switcher. Any block can opt into these alignments. The embed block has them also, and is responsive out of the box: You can build any block you like, static or dynamic, decorative or plain. Here’s a pullquote block: Code is Poetry The WordPress community If you want to learn more about how to build additional blocks, or if you are interested in helping with the project, head over to the GitHub repository.

World is Volatile, Market is Volatile, Mind is Dormant

November 20, 2017 Everything is volatile.  Everything is subject to change.  But does it ever seem the changes are good?   liable to change rapidly and unpredictably, especially for the worse. “the political situation was becoming more volatile” synonyms: tense, strained, fraught, uneasy, uncomfortable, charged, explosive, inflammatory, turbulent; How much can the most alert person take?   Case in point:  My own following of the stock market. Even with the data in front of my face, for the most part, I don’t even see it.  I have been following certain stocks since the beginning of the year but, now I’m lucky if I have a handle on half of them.   Along the way, I swapped a few out for others, but forgot to check their price at that point.  Now, as we get near the end of the year, I’m missing the original price on a lot of them, (probably the critical ones).  They were probably big losers.  The ones I have left are half and half.  Big winners, big losers.  This is the stock market for people who assume that companies grow at a steady pace.  Are they still around?  I’ll research that later.  So, it’s a draw.  In this crazy world, I cannot afford a draw.  Can you afford a draw?  What is the solution in this world for being alert 24/7 for the things we need to be alert 24/7 for?  My belief is the solution is 1 or 2 more yous to keep track of the stuff you can’t keep in mind all the time. What happened here?  I don’t know, but maybe I can find the data somewhere in my huge mess of data.   Why is it high tech has made things more volatile and less beneficial?   Now!  How about everything else?  How about the account updates I get every week from multiple websites, all in nice small print?  Updates to mortgages and insurance and utility bills, with eye-straining confused language?  How about all the appointments that come and go and get rescheduled?  How about the ones that change their rules, whatever, and then your account gets shut down or you get charged for things you didn’t want?  Hey, you got that project done yet?  Your boss wants to know.  How about all the outside things you must do on doctor’s orders?  Don’t forget to brush your teeth.  The trash is full again.  You gonna make that poor dog cross her legs all day?  The days of the corporation have made it much more impersonal and time-consuming;  Press ‘1’ if you would like to dance, press ‘2’ to just stand there, there are several callers ahead of you even though we have workers from all over the world.  How about the missed communications while you were waiting for an operator?  Oh, geesh!  Another traffic jam!  What happened to work-at-home?  Did you get that inspection yet?  You may get a fine.  Don’t forget the mail, and pick up some more bread.  You still have to get the wash done, but the washer is broke.   By now, you know you must be superhuman in terms of alertness.  But, that’s not enough because, even if you are very alert and cross all the t’s, you will run in to many, many others who make mistakes for which you have to bite the bullet or spend an incredible amount of precious time trying to correct.   It’s either one of two things; 1)  The biggy big management people and corporate heads are more than ignorant of the ‘little people’ in this matter.  or…  2)  They do know and that’s part of the plan.  Think about it slave.  Think about it.  You may find some time out there in the interstate parking lot.   How is it that companies talk about making life easier and instead, it continually gets more confusing and complex?  Two hundred year-old laws are still on the books.  We always conjure up the past in order to repeat the worst of it.  Think slave.  Think.  It is possible to get beyond this insanity.  All you have to do is make peace with the people next to you. But, you aren’t afraid, Mr. Steel pants. Here you go: When I look a lot at the division on YouTube and the local news continuing to drudge up the worst to keep the corruption game going, it is obvious that may be really hard.  But, if you really are modern-if you really want change-why are you carrying signs bought for you by the same-said people and creating division? Still don’t want to get real? Okay, here’s a steal: .   Yes, this has been updated because I see people love to read it. My advice is teamwork. Doing everything yourself is certainly no fun. In fact, it can become outright unbearable. It can drive you crazy. I want my readers to succeed. Don’t burn yourself out. What has been termed the Millennial condition out there in the Wide World of Sports is everyone’s condition. The ignorance is incredible at the top, isn’t it? Millennial indeed!
