With a good night’s sleep being so important to our health, it’s not surprising to see so many gadgets designed to deliver us into the Land of Nod. URGOnight is a novel sleep training device designed to improve your ability to get to sleep, and stay asleep, through the use of neurofeedback and brain training. The system, comprising an EEG headset and accompanying mobile app, is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo. read more

The Power of Victimization

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

It’s quite obvious that Islam is treated much differently than are all other religions.

Check that. After further reflection, it is treated differently than all but one other religion. I overlooked the religion of leftism, which, like Islam, is both religious and political.

Islam is a religion which also has a command and control political machine. Radical Islamists seek to control every aspect of life. Radical leftism, the other side of the same coin, is a command and control political machine, which is treated like a religion, demanding blind faith of its followers, and also seeks to control every aspect of life.

And both have yet another thing in common, and that is victimization. Like leftism, Islamic victimization extends well beyond our borders.

In a case of hyper-#MeToo victimization, a doctor in Great Britain is in peril of losing his entire medical practice over one unsubstantiated claim by a Muslim woman. And the woman wasn’t even the patient. read more

Weapon Wednesday – B-17’s Cold Blue Moment

The B-17 “Flying Fortress” is one of the most iconic aircraft of World War II. Built by Boeing, the four-engine bomber was the United States’ primary weapon of destruction in the air campaign to annihilate cities and bring Nazi Germany to its knees. Its combat performance was decidedly uneven, yet no one questions its primacy in the war. read more

Another Conservative Voice gets Squelched

from the American Spectator:

Facebook Targets Michelle Malkin: Gives Pass to Antifa

And there they go again.

Facebook has censored Michelle Malkin — for protesting censorship. Meanwhile, as noted in this space just last week, Facebook has no problem with the pro-fascist and deliberately misnamed “Antifa” — the pro-fascist group that pretends its use of hooded faces and clubs is somehow “anti-fascist.” Here is the link to AntifaUSA and their masked faces as they appear on Facebook. Take a good look at Antifa’s favored appearance of black ski masks and recall another leftist group — this one that historians describe as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”

Ahh, the more things change the more they stay the same — from the Klan to Antifa the far-left specializes in hiding its faces to enable its acts of hatred and violence.

And what specifically was Michelle Malkin censored for? Here, courtesy of Breitbart, is the tweet that got her censored: read more

Micro-Scale Drones

Tiny robot insects might seem little more than fun, geeky gadgets to some, but the potential for these cyber-critters in areas like search and rescue, agriculture and hazard detection is massive – and so are the hurdles. Power-supplies, onboard-sensors, control and stability are all problematic at the micro-scale. It’s this last issue – stability – that researchers at the University of Southern California (USC) have been working on with their Bee+, drawing inspiration – yet again – from the insect world. read more

No, We don’t want Illegal Aliens Dumped in our Counties

Ain’t this is a funny old world. I discussed this very topic in my most recent video podcast. You may view it here.

from Conservative Review:

It turns out that keeping waves of illegal immigrants out of our communities is a bipartisan goal

In retrospect, Donald Trump locked up the Republican presidential nomination the day he announced his candidacy. In words that will forever be etched in the minds of voters who were captivated by his boldness, Trump came down the escalator at Trump Tower on June 16, 2015, and announced, “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.” He spoke directly to the unspoken concern of millions of Americans when he declared, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. … They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” read more

Rubicon Hitch Tent

If you were looking over an SUV or truck trying to find the roof-top tent (RTT), the most logical place to look would be … the roof. But California startup Rubicon Expedition Products wants people to expand their idea of what a roof-top tent is and where it belongs on the vehicle. Its Hitch Tent system drops the roof tent down to hitch level, making it easier to load and unload and freeing up the vehicle for day trips. The integrated frame stands the tent above the cold, rocky ground below. read more
