Always Providing You With Information

June 1, Section 215 of the Patriot Act will expire unless reauthorized by Congress. Section 215 is the authority, claimed by the NSA (National Security Agency) since 2006, that allows the government to collect and store mass phone metadata.

Metadata is essentially describes or summarizes other data. When pieced together, metadata can show, in great detail, what a person is saying or doing. With cellphones, they can not only track who you talk to, but where you go. Obtained documents and interviews with intelligence officials reveal that the NSA gathers nearly 5 billion records a day on the whereabouts of cellphones around the world.

Over the past month, Republican leaders of the House Intelligence Committee had closed door meetings between Congressional members and national intelligence representatives.

The director of national intelligence, James Clapper, said if metadata  is taken away and some untoward incident happens that could have been thwarted he hopes that everyone involved in that decision will assume responsibility.

A new bill brought to the floor of Senate by McConnell proposes extending the Patriot Act and, by extension, the surveillance capabilities of the National Security Agency — specifically, the ability to collect phone data from millions of Americans under the guise of monitoring terrorist activity. The bill is co-sponsored by Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman and North Carolina republican Richard Burr.

The bill comes two years after former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed the capabilities of the organization, delving into the spying methods of the U.S. government. Information continues to be released, and President Barack Obama has publicly called for an end to NSA’s data collection. The program is capable of collecting dialed numbers, as well as the time and date of call.

McConnell and Burr have invoked a Senate rule in filing the bill that allows them to bring the legislation straight to the floor of the senate, bypassing the standard vetting process done by senate committees. However, no date has been set for consideration.

A superiority complex is a psychological disorder in which the affected individual experiences an exaggerated feeling of self-importance. He or she feels superior to other people and displays a general disregard for the thoughts of others. Individuals with a superiority complex often exhibit a sense of grandiosity. They typically maintain a feeling that they are better or more important than other people, and often fail to take the opinions or desires of others seriously. This disorder may also be referred to as narcissism or megalomania.

Jealousy is a complex emotion that encompasses many different kinds of feelings that range from fear of abandonment to rage to humiliation. Jealousy can strike both men and women when they perceive a third-party threat to a valued relationship, it can be a problem among siblings competing for parental attention, or envy for a wealthier more successful friend. Jealously usually does more harm than good to relationships, and can create relationship conflict and violence. Envy occurs when we lack a desired attribute enjoyed by another.Jealousy occurs when something we already possess (usually a special relationship) is threatened by a third person Envy is a two-person situation whereas jealousy is a three-person situation. Envy is a reaction to lacking something. Jealousy is a reaction to the threat of losing something (usually someone).

Envy, as unpleasant as it can be, usually doesn’t contain a sense of betrayal and resultant outrage, for example. Jealousy need not contain an acute sense of inferiority (if the rival is not enviable).

Haters and jealous types want you to fail. They are the people who say that something can never happen, that things are impossible, that you’re not clever or good enough or that nobody has ever managed to do what you’re trying to do, so who do you think you are, and so forth. Use their barbs to power your determination even more; think about their spineless attitude to life and how they fail to see that it’s effort and determination that make all the difference, not some anointed “born-with-it” miracle powers. Their taunts should make you want to do even better and prove them wrong by succeeding. And remember, success is defined by you, not by others.

People who hate and act jealous are one of life’s constants. Sadly for such persons, life is one huge battlefield, filled with traps and demons. Their way of coping with this skewed picture is to send forth their defensive hate monsters, to ward off the dangers they’ve conjured for themselves. And there is nothing more such people fear than someone who represents all the things they wish they were or had themselves.

  • Realize for your own sense of well-being that this is not personal to you; it’s all about them and what is missing inside of them.
  • Understand that their lack of self-competence is driving them to take cheap shots at you because they see something in you that they want but can’t have, usually because they lack the discipline to put in effort or to try harder.
  • Satisfaction will be temporarily gained if they can make you cry, lose your temper or be visibly distressed in front of them

Google has a new feature that allows Android users to just type ‘find my phone’ into a Google search box to find their lost or missing smartphone.

As long as they are logged in with the same Google account that is registered on their smartphone, they will be presented with a map revealing the device’s current location. If the device is nearby, they can also ask it to ring.

In the case that it has been stolen, for example, the Find My Phone feature does not allow users to lock or wipe their device remotely. However, they can do this through the existing Android Device Manager.

“If you know where your computer is, you can now ask Google to find your Android phone from your desktop. If the pesky phone is hiding nearby, Google can ring it for you – or you can see it on the map if you, say, forgot it at the bar.”
