    O YE DRYBONES :Can These BONES Live in 2016

    in Current Events

    Imagine the following scenario: You are on your way home from work, driving down the road when you notice police lights in your rearview mirror. You are being pulled over.


    As you sit there, on the shoulder, adrenaline rushing, simultaneously angry and nervous, the police officer, in his patrol car behind you, is sizing you up based on an algorithm that determines your “threat rating.The officer enters your license plate into a mobile application on his laptop. In a matter of seconds, this application crawls over billions of records in commercial and public databases, including all available social media engagement, recent purchases and any comment that are offensive The application then determines if your “threat rating” is green, yellow, or red.The reality is that any number of unimaginable things can and would happen next. And now, thanks to an especially ominous product, by a company named Intrado, and the Orwellian nature of police in this country, those extraordinary situations are now a reality
    Intrado is one of many corporations thriving here in the US, from the creation and growth of the police industrial complex.


    The prefix “vict” comes from the Latin root word vict, meaning “conquer.” It is related to the root word vinc. This is where we get the word victim from. The definition of victim is “a person who is deceived or cheated, as by his or her own emotions or ignorance, by the dishonesty of others, or by some impersonal agency” or “a person or animal sacrificed or regarded as sacrificed”.the dots, a “con-vict” or “vict-con”

    How our pets can teach us about love.

    in Motivation

    Counselor Mandy Eppley speaks with veterinarian and animal advocate Dr. Linda Bender about the importance of grieving our pets and how they continue to bless our lives even after they pass. Dr. Bender shares the story of losing her precious cat, Wimsey, who she considered to be her best friend for 18 years. Both Mandy and Linda emphasize how important it is to allow yourself to grieve pets, as we do for humans, and to not feel ashamed about it. Linda shares several stories from her collection (one of the largest databases of stories about animals in the world) about how beloved animals have contacted their owners after they pass. She helps people see how these experiences are “normal” and not “paranormal.” She says “grief can motivate us to show up as love in the world.”


    Dr. Linda Bender’s love of the natural world began in her childhood backyard. Her innate rapport with animals inspired her to earn a doctorate in veterinary medicine. During the 14 years she spent living in England, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, Linda’s veterinary work included the rescue, rehabilitation, and protection of wildlife, often in remote areas.  In 2014 Linda wrote a book called Animal Wisdom: Learning from the Spiritual Lives of Animals (North Atlantic). This book illuminates the undeniable ability for animals to restore our ecological, emotional and spiritual balance.


    Her non-profit, From the Heart, has a mission of recognizing that all creatures have lives of meaning and purpose, and provides support for animals in need and strives to help people understand the natural connection between humans and animals, and the mutual need to protect the Earth we share.

    The Pulsars Episode

    in Entertainment

    The Dungeon Crawlers Radio teams welcomes the creators of the Pulsar RPG thats available on Kickstarter now.


    Pulsars is a tabletop role playing game set in a universe where dedicated soldiers gain access to powered suits of armor that grant them strange and phenomenal abilities. These soldiers, known as Pulsars, take on the forces of the great Enemy and his minions in a struggle to protect the galaxy.


    In the game, you are a member of the Pulsar Corps: a line of galactic defenders who are humanity's best chance for survival in a war that has waged for over a century. As a Pulsar, you are given a Suit, an amazing piece of technology that allows for one person to stand against a legion of foes and increases their physical and mental abilities. The Suit will exemplify whatever made you exceptional before, turning you into an epic level defender of the galaxy. 

    A warrior becomes even faster and stronger, their weapons become more accurate. A crime scene investigator has their Suit hardwired directly into their brain, allowing them to analyze evidence found at a crime scene instantaneously as well as having multiple databases downloaded into their brain for information. A field surgeon may have a suit that automatically sterilizes the environment and can produce simple compounds to aid in healing wounds, or generate the tools needed to treat broken bones.

    JAIL PRO-LIFE HACKERS TOO?

    in Politics

    Excerpted from last Thursday's press release by our guest Alfredo Lopez, May 1st IT steering committe member.


    Using a Denial of Service attack, hackers crippled servers at May First/People Link hosting the websites of several pro-choice organizations Thursday, July 30.

    The target was Fund Abortion Now (http://fundabortionnow.org/), the website of the National Network of Abortion Funds, a national network of pro-choice foundations and organizations and a May First/People Link member.

    The attack, which appears to be part of a coordinated, national attack on pro-choice sites (including Planned Parenthood) started in the early morning hours of July 30 and continued for several hours after that.

    May First technologists resolved the issue by routing the website traffic through Deflect (https://www.deflect.ca/), a free and open source-based service that assists websites that are under Denial of Service attacks. Deflect reroutes the website traffic through its own specially designed distributed network of servers that can filter out attacks like these before routing it back to May First/People Link. After that move, the website came up and is now functional.

    Planned Parenthood, the target of a recent smear campaign by right-wing propagandists, suffered two on-line attacks this week: one involved theft of data from the organization's databases and the other was a Denial of Service attack that brought the organization's site down on Wednesday. Planned Parenthood's site, although recovered, remains off-line today.

    May First/People Link is a membership organization specializing in Internet work with members world-wide, primiarily in the United States and Mexico.

    Embracing The Age of Mobility - Part 1 of 6

    in Technology

    Part 1: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly of Mobility and BYOD


    There are a lot of advantages to mobility in today’s workforce, but the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) movement has also brought its share of headaches as well.


    We live in a society where everyone must have the newest technology. We are inundated with ads reminding us that the smartphone or tablet we just bought a year ago is laughably outdated and inferior to the upgrade that just hit the market.


    People who have just bought the latest technology don’t want to have to set it aside to use a separate company-issued device. As a result, businesses are beginning to grant these employee-owned devices access to their file and email servers, databases, and applications.


    While this brings certain competitive advantages to employers, it naturally carries many risks, too.
