    here’s more info about AIPAC chips since you wanted to know more about them. A lot of the reasons that AIPAC has the kind of power it does is because of religion I think.

    The old fogies are reminiscing upthread…….. something to bring you into the 21st century :cool:

    Say you’ve got 15 minutes in an airport between flights and your phone is nearly dead. What do you do? In the past, you had two choices. You could give it the old college try: find an outlet and plug in your phone, watch the battery meter inch up as the minutes run down, and pray that you’ve gained enough power to get you through your day. Or you admit defeat and let your phone die. In 15 minutes of charging, you’re only going to get a few percent more battery power anyway.

    What’s the point?….

    …The device is an Ultrapak battery pack, an external charger made by a firm called Unu Electronics. External battery packs aren’t novel. These little devices are essentially just batteries in a case — you charge it up by plugging it into the wall, then plug your phone in to suck up the power stored in the pack. But the Ultrapak does something unusual among battery packs. It quickly sucks up power, about eight times faster than other battery packs, the firm says. It’s so fast that, in about 15 minutes of charging, the pack gets enough juice to charge a standard smartphone one time.

    In other words, if you’ve got just 15 minutes to charge your device, you should plug the Ultrapak into the wall instead of your phone. The Ultrapak will rapidly ingest power. Then, when you get on the plane, plug your phone into the Ultrapak. Over the next couple hours, your phone will slowly sip the power in the Ultrapak, eventually getting to 100 percent….continued

    The first signs came earlier this week:

    BAGHDAD — Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s days at the helm of his country appear to be numbered after his own party seemed resigned to finding another candidate for the post, releasing a statement urging politicians not to “cling” to their positions. Shiite politicians were meeting Sunday night to discuss other names for the premiership, lawmakers said. A day earlier, Maliki’s Dawa party said it in its statement that politicians should “adhere to the principle of sacrifice” for the sake of the country.

    Maliki’s coalition won the largest share of the vote in elections in April, but not a majority, making him reliant on political alliances to form a government. But with many blaming him for the turmoil that has convulsed the country since the polls, some parties are digging in their heels to prevent him ruling for a third four-year term.

    But even more problematic for Maliki have been hints from Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani that it is time for him to step aside. The reclusive Shiite cleric arguably is the most influential figure in Iraq, with his words closely followed by millions across the country. Although he normally avoids directly embroiling himself in politics, his sermons have become increasingly pointed. The Dawa party’s statement Saturday echoed a sermon delivered on behalf of Sistani on Friday, which also urged politicians not to cling to their positions and to expedite the formation of a new government……continued

    I am in tears. I tweeted earlier about Politico just calling the President “Obama”, while they give GOPers their titles. This exchange popped up on my TL. Typo mishap of our time:

    “Correct, Muhammad! That is precisely correct. Despite a generation of Conservative policies that hurt people like Barack Obama, he still managed to succeed in spite of them. Once he became president, Conservatives were afraid that his story would prove their their policies actually hurt more people than helped. And again class, what do groups in history do when it’s proven their policies don’t work?”

    (in unison) “Lie!”

    This piece is so kool….check it out!

    Karma prepares to visit Tzar Vlad, from the East ….

    “Residents of the Russian Federation are increasingly identifying not as Russians but as Siberians not only because they feel themselves different than ethnic Russians in terms of mentality but also because Moscow treats them like a colony and because they have closer ties to China and the Pacific Rim countries than to European Russia.

    Indeed, according to some Siberian activists, 25 to 30 percent of the population there would welcome complete independence, 60 to 70 percent want greater autonomy from Moscow and “only about 10 percent are satisfied” with the current federation arrangements.”

    An ode to my sweet home Alabama:

    Dear DNC,

    I want you to come to Birmingham because Birmingham needs your help with something. And if you do decide to bring your convention here, I think Birmingham could help you. A couple of years ago, I was at my favorite Southside watering hole when a British couple walked into the bar. One was from London. The other was from Birmingham, England. Both were very complimentary of our city. Americans are proud, but that pride often betrays a streak of insecurity. No matter what we say to the contrary, we do care what other people think of us, especially in the South, and especially in Birmingham. A few folks at the bar started to pepper that couple with questions, and someone blurted out, “What’s the best thing this country has ever done?”

    Maybe they were expecting, “Thank you for saving us from the Germans.” That’s not the answer they gave.

    Instead, the couple said something surprising: America’s real gift to the world has been the civil rights movement. That movement hasn’t ended and it is still making its way around the world, and it started here in the states. Suddenly the folks in the bar got quiet. I don’t believe I had ever seen a whole group of people blush before – not because anyone was embarrassed, but rather, because everyone realized that we had something to be truly proud of…….continued

      Perhaps you are aware, LP, but a couple of days ago I expressed very strong support for Birmingham being selected for precisely the reasons stated in this letter. Could not imagine a richer context than the place from which Rev MLKJr penned his letter from jail for what will certainly be the central theme of 2016 – eradicating the pervasive INEQUALITY in America.

      Thank you for posting the tweet and excerpts from the letter!!

        Actually I wasn’t aware, Bob. I was checking on AL.com because Auburn was having the #1 HS recruit in the nation for an unofficial 4-day visit, on top of picking up the ESPN 300 #48 recruit committing yesterday morning. Long story short b/c of newsroom cutbacks all the major city papers post under the AL.com banner now, and that is where I ran across that op-ed. After reading it……. I was like wow….that makes absolute sense, and the kicker was his point that just b/c you have your convention in a swing state you won’t carry it. Case & point: of the last four conventions, only Denver carried CO. Charlotte-nope, Tampa GOP-nope, and MN GOP 08-nope.

    Followed by a Twitter account with unusual Dutch sayings like “The end crowns all.” Somehow I don’t think the translator is working smoothly! I was pleasantly surprised to see this which translates perfectly. :)

      Very cool that someone’s paying attention.

      It’s a very odd gallery — there’s an advert with each one (e.g., flights to China about the space program, and ends with “lap-band with insurance,” LOL).

      Here’s a poignant article on behalf of the Dutch.

      The newspaper that printed this front page:
      Novaya Gazeta was established by Mikhail Gorbachev, the former leader of the Soviet Union, who used money he received from him his 1990 Nobel Prize to part fund the publication in 1993. The publication is part-owned by Alexander Lebedev, whose son Evgeny owns The Independent.

    Me, too!
    Thank you, Layla.
    From this day on up until Nov. 4th, nothing but positive thought!s!
    I don’t care what it looks like, sounds like, talk likes, smells like.
    I WILL NOT allow negative BS to enter MY space. Too much work to do.
    President Obama and his Administration has worked too damn hard to give up, throw it away for negative BS.
    We know the game plan let’s move up to higher grounds and don’t look back unless it is going to be a blessing.
    Ten glorious years in my life, what memories and in the next two and a half years remaining I am expecting nothing but even more greater first time ever events from this Administration.
    The best is yet to come!
