Baseball brings new tech to the plate - Fortune Tech
"MLB Advanced Media, the tech outfit owned by baseball's 30 clubs, is rolling out a new tracking technology that yields insights about the entire field of play -- not just the pitch or the hit. Through a combination of cameras, radar, and proprietary software, the new system provides data on a base runner's jump and speed and the angle of his path while trying to, say, steal second base. It can also capture information on the catcher, fielders, and more." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Opinion: What if the government guaranteed you an income? - -
Opinion: What if the government guaranteed you an income? -
"A monthly cash payment to every American, no questions asked, would solve several of our most daunting challenges. It's called a basic income, and it's cheaper and much more effective than our current malfunctioning safety net, which costs nearly $1 trillion per year. The idea of a basic income, sometimes called a guaranteed minimum income or a negative income tax, has been discussed for decades by notable economists like Milton Friedman. In the late 1960s and 1970s, the idea had bipartisan backing before losing steam. Recently, in the face of a sputtering economy, a weak job market and rising income inequality, it has been gathering supporters at an ever-quickening pace." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

'The power of music': Musicians bring concerts to bedridden man -
"The 35-year-old man from Farmington, Maine, has been confined to a bed for two years, due to a medical condition stemming from spinal cord problems and nerve damage. But, thanks to a regular rotation of musicians who perform concerts at his bedside, he’s still able to enjoy one of his favorite things — live music." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
"Two popular Maine musicians have also brought their music into Stanley's home, playing concerts at the house now known as “Stanley Station." The Rustic Overtones have packed a seven-piece band into Stanley’s living room for over a year, ever since lead singer Dave Gutter met Stanley at a concert. “His friends and family pulled this mobile hospital bed right up to the front of the... more... - Steve C
"Gutter says their bedside concerts are as much for Stanley as they are for the band, which gets re-energized by playing for their hardcore fan. “It’s our 20-year anniversary, and to put some wind in our sails and keep our heads up and keep us believing in the power of music is a beautiful thing,” he said." - Steve C

Going to bed super frustrated that I owe >$2K to the state for 2013. I have never owed more than $600! I filled something in wrong #turbosux

Yup. - Jed from iPhone
Of course I do. She lives with me, after all. - Uli
Yes, and that's mainly because he lives a few doors down from another coworker whose house I've been to. I also knew where my bosses from Iowa (first one), FT Illinois library job, first grad school assistantship, and second State Farm posting lived as I was invited to their houses at some point. I knew where my high school boss lived because it was my dad :) - Katie

Guess I done been blocked by someone. I wonder which TMI did it this time. <sigh> Of course, the only way I happen to find out is when I do a search and their name doesn't show up, but I know they're still on FF. Such are the times I know it's getting closer to the sign-off stage. But I'll probably keep TMI'ing for a while longer, in spite of
myself. Not meaning that as a threat, though it may seem like one. Just wanted to reassure my remaining friends that I'm not jumping ship right away. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I'm here, that's all that matters :oD - Melly

I don't worry about whether I've offended anyone enough for them to block me. I just figure the ones that matter are the ones that stay. - ellbeecee

I'm here. - Betsy
Thanks all.I do try to keep things in perspective, and I realize that means not everyone enjoys my eccentricities. And yes Melly, the day you block my pervy ass will be the day I *know* I need to exit FF. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Give no thought to anyone who would block you as long as you still have all of us (See above) here with you. - Friar Will
Indeed, that's the salient point, Will. I guess I'm always surprised by a block because it's more than just an "unsubscribe" so I'm always curious as to what I might have done that was SO bad/annoying/perverted or whatever. Then again, this person may have blocked me years ago and I'm just now discovering. Which makes such contemplation futile, but also raises the possibility that there... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

More TMI please! - Steve C
I thought this link told you who blocked you. - Mike Nencetti
I like your TMIs and outrageous comments. I collect them to decorate my desktop. Keep them coming! :-D - April Russo
I didn't know about that feature, Mike. Interestingly, it doesn't show any one blocking me (at least not showing an action called "blocked" but it shows ME as having unsubscribed from the person in question last fall. I'm sure that I didn't do so intentionally, and that wouldn't explain why the person doesn't show up in a search of FFers. (Unless I'm wrong on that point?)

So on top of the surgery scar on the arm from two weeks ago I fish hooked myself with the high E string while re-stringing the guitar and then burned my hand getting the nachos out of the oven.

Police uncover daily rental racket - Taipei Times -
"Taipei police, while inspecting homes that were registered as empty, recently found illegal hostel owners renting out rooms on a daily basis to be used by prostitutes in the city’s Xinyi District (信義). According to the Daan District (大安) police precinct, the owners of what was known as the “Mango Hostel” had been found renting out an apartment, walled up and separated into two rooms, on the 12th floor of an apartment building. Police said the hostel recruited most of its guests, predominantly Chinese or foreign backpackers, through the China-based online shopping Web site Taobao." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Police said they marked the building for surveillance when officers “instinctively felt something fishy was going on” after observing a man and woman going into the building and leaving together a short while later, adding that the woman was wearing heavy make-up and the man looked horny." - Jessie
Man, can't even walk around looking horny these days. Although what does that even look like? - ronin from FFHound!

Which Language Should You Learn To Speak?
" You got: Chinese. 祝贺您! More and more high schools are offering Mandarin these days, and as it’s the most-spoken language in the world, you’d be smart to start studying. In many ways, Mandarin Chinese is actually much easier to learn than European languages: there’s no subject/verb agreement, no plurals, no conjugations, and no tenses. Whether’s it’s business-related or just for personal enrichment, Chinese would be a worthy way to challenge yourself. You can do it!" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Learn it, Jessie! I think you can do it! =) - Anika

If Jesus Never Called Himself God, How Did He Become One? : NPR -
If Jesus Never Called Himself God, How Did He Become One? : NPR
"You do find Jesus calling himself God in the Gospel of John, or the last Gospel. Jesus says things like, "Before Abraham was, I am." And, "I and the Father are one," and, "If you've seen me, you've seen the Father." These are all statements you find only in the Gospel of John, and that's striking because we have earlier gospels and we have the writings of Paul, and in none of them is there any indication that Jesus said such things. ... I think it's completely implausible that Matthew, Mark and Luke would not mention that Jesus called himself God if that's what he was declaring about himself. That would be a rather important point to make. This is not an unusual view amongst scholars; it's simply the view that the Gospel of John is providing a theological understanding of Jesus that is not what was historically accurate." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

National Guard Parachutes to Rescue Tot on Sailboat in Pacific - NBC -
Air National Guard members dramatically parachuted onto a sailboat stranded in the Pacific Ocean overnight, stabilized a "seriously ill" 1-year-old girl and were trying to figure out how to get the boat back to shore, the service said Friday. Members of the 129th Rescue Wing flew five hours Thursday from Moffett Federal Airfield, Calif., near San Jose, to the sailboat about 900 miles off the coast of Mexico on what the California National Guard called a "complex overwater rescue mission." A parachute rescue team of four jumped into the ocean Thursday night, inflated a raft and boarded the 36-foot-long Rebel Heart, which is carrying Eric and Charlotte Kaufman of San Diego and their daughters, Cora, 3, and Lyra, 1, on the latest leg of what they'd planned to be a round-the-world voyage. - Steve C from Bookmarklet

5-year-old boy hacks dad's Xbox account - -
"Kristoffer would go to his dad's account and type in an incorrect password. That would take him to a password verifications screen, where he would simply tap the space bar repeatedly and then press "enter." "How awesome is that?" asked Davies, who works in online security himself. "Just being 5 years old and being able to find a vulnerability and latch on to that. I thought that was pretty cool." He told KGTV that Kristoffer has figured out three or four other "hacks," including getting past the lock on a smartphone by holding down the "home" key for long enough. Dad reported the vulnerability to Microsoft. And Microsoft acted, issuing a fix for the vulnerability." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Radio host rips MLB player for paternity leave, suggests C-section before season  - -
"New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy missed the season's first two games to be with his wife during the birth of their first child earlier this week. Murphy's wife went into labor on opening day Monday, so he went to Florida to be with her for the birth of son Noah, then decided to take the three full days' paternity leave allowed by Major League Baseball." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
"Seems reasonable, right? Not to some sports radio announcers, including former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason. "Quite frankly I would've said 'C-section before the season starts. I need to be at opening day. I'm sorry, this is what makes our money, this is how we're going to live our life, this is going to give our child every opportunity to be a success in life.

Cereal Characters Lure Kiddies With Eye Gaze: Study - NBC -
Cereal Characters Lure Kiddies With Eye Gaze: Study - NBC
A new study from Cornell University finds that the cartoon characters on cereals marketed to kids are routinely designed so their eyes are shifted 9.6 degrees down. That's the perfect angle to make eye contact with a child standing in the aisle. - Steve C from Bookmarklet
Sounds like bullshit. What if the cereals on the top shelf, or bottom shelf. I'd say it's more that the cereal is in the visually suggested area of the box. We follow eyes to see what they're looking at. - Not Me
studies show that most cereal marketed to children is not placed on the top shelf though. - holly #ravingfangirl
Even without the cartoon characters pulling focus, the major brands usually pay good money to make sure the kids' cereals are on the 2nd or 3rd shelves (usually the 2nd) so they're face-height for most kids already. - Jennifer Dittrich
They apparently did the math on the height and angles, but it still seems like they didn't test it thoroughly enough. They didn't even attempt at making their altered box look non-freakish. Their rabbit looks psychotic. You don't just change pupil location, when the face is pointing in another direction. Plus, they changed the characters focus from the bowl of cereal. - Not Me
