Kids In Handcuffs

Kids In Handcuffs

For a kid on the autism spectrum being hauled off from school in cuffs for autistic behaviors is not ever the right thing for school systems to do. I say this as a dad who has had to deal with the aftermath of this action. 

A joint project by the NBC News Investigative Unit and the NBC Owned Stations shows school discipline is tougher for blacks, kids with disabilities.

Resist Now And Then

Resist Now And Then

“Why do you allow these men who are in power to rob you step by step, openly and in secret, of one domain of your rights after another, until one day nothing, nothing at all will be left but a mechanised state system presided over by criminals and drunks? Is your spirit already so crushed by abuse that you forget it is your right – or rather, your moral duty – to eliminate this system?”— 3rd leaflet of the White Rose

With The Right Kind If Eyes…..

With The Right Kind If Eyes…..

"There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. . . .

And that, I think, was the handle—that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting—on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. . . .

So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark—that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back."
Hunter S Thompson

Make It To Grok It

Make It To Grok It

At some point you have to stop, dive deep and work on the atomics of a technology to fully grok it. Here then is a project to wrestle with an understanding of our brave new world. Hands on.

Attempt to build a computer using cardboard and brass paper fasteners as the base material for all of the logic circuits. Why? Well, the cardboard is free as my workplace puts it in the dumpster and I do not have the funds to by better material. All of the electronic parts thus far were given to me by a friend who passed away and what better tribute than to build a computer. Except for the ALU all gates are either Nand or Nor using DTL.
