Memorial Day – Thank You

Well, it’s obvious now that I live in the U.S., so if this is a normal Monday for you… this post won’t be as meaningful.
To start, my grandfather and his father served in the U.S. military, as well as probably other relatives that I don’t know of yet. It’s extremely important that we honor these people who risked their lives for us to live in peace. Even though fighting isn’t the only answer, when the chance to help their country came about, they didn’t bat an eyelash. For some, this was the country that discriminated against them and told them to leave, but they fought anyway. The most honorable are the people that we do not know, the ones that fought and never came back. Take a moment and think of the people that fought on your behalf and the ones that gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Welcome Refugees!

A refugee is leaving the disaster to get away from terrorism and a helpless situation. So, if they’re leaving, they obviously don’t want any part in the terror. Then, why aren’t we letting them in?

Many people wish to allow refugees into their countries to help them get away from war-torn countries. For example, Canada has families sponsor and help refugees into their country and famously have no problems because of it. In the U.S. there is a lot of controversy because of The President’s immigration ban on middle-eastern countries, causing a lot of problems for people who got visas after many years. Several of his tweets say that “If the ban were announced with a one week notice, the “bad” would rush into our country during that week. A lot of bad “dudes” out there!” quoting The President’s tweet. This is stating that all refugees are bad and have ties to terrorist groups, which about less than 1% do. That’s about same as three poison skittles in one-and-a-half Olympic-sized swimming pools.

Leave!

If they’re leaving the bad country, then they must have ties to the problems in that country. We can’t let them in because we don’t want their problems coming here!
SYRIAN-REFUGEES-01

Several groups in America favor isolationism, basically not getting involved and not letting anyone into the U.S. Many of those people are arguing that the refugees have ties to ISIS, North Korea, (etc.). Their argument is that we shouldn’t let dangerous people come in because they are going to spy on us and take our jobs. They’ll even promote violence because of the harsh conditions they were means they’re aggressive.

This isn’t your normal whole post, sorry. This is regarding a story, then analyzing it.

So, where I used to live we had tons of ants. Then, my friend discovered these TERRO Liquid Ant Traps and we put them out. You see, the way they work is the ants smell sweet liquid and they go into to eat it, but the liquid is sweet and poisonous. When we put theTERRO Liquid Ant Baitstraps out, a whole bunch would die and we would need to replace them after about a month or two. That happened every year, the ants never got the memo, probably because no veteran ant was alive after one whole year. When we moved to my new place, we put the ant traps for two years, with the same results. Then on the third year, we put them out, so many died. They seemed almost eradicated, my friend and I were sort of sad because we never wanted the ants to die, just get out of our residency. That fourth year, the ants were back again and we put the traps out. In less than 24 hours, they were all gone. We realized that they must have passed along the information that the traps were seriously deadly. If you think that it’s just a coincidence, then guess what? It happened this year, too.

My friend and I were so amazed that these ants had passed along the information for TWO years. That’s a long time for an ant! Ants are smart, so don’t underestimate them, but it’s nicer to give a warning than to kill all of them. It’s a win-win.

UPDATE for Google Earth!

Do you know about Google Earth? Probably. I mean, I looked at it for a minute, found my residency, and left. It’s boring, or at least… it was. The new Google Earth starts off with a cheeky loading screen.

Then, you have the Earth.
Normal Google Earth.... not really
At the bottom-right corner, there’s the navigation, zoom, and 3D option. At the bottom, in the font that everyone needs glasses to see, they show the longitude and the latitude as well as some other nerdy things. Yet, now they have new features and a new video showcasing them. Here are a few:
Google Voyager:

As you can see, there are four categories: Editor’s Picks, Travel, Nature, Culture, and History. Google Voyager showcases the beauty of the world, from different Sesame Street Girls to America’s National Parks. Another new feature is this:
Pegman Photo Spheres
See those little blue dots? When you drag the orange ‘Pegman’ into them you are engulfed into these ‘Photo Spheres,’ taken by ordinary people with the right equipment. Along with by sign-off, here’s a ‘Photo Sphere’ taken on the Eiffel tower:

Welcome Logic Labs!

Welcome Logic Labs!

After my Easter/Lent Logic Lab, I thought it might be nice to introduce you to what these are in the first place! The point of Logic Labs is to give you a non-bias point of view on whatever I’m looking into. Even though I celebrate Easter, I never said if it was great or what I did, because that differs based on your country and your family. Anyways, I hope you enjoy Logic Labs, they’ll come out once every month.

Logic Lab – Easter/Lent

Logic Lab – Easter/Lent

Hello! Welcome to the Logic Lab, this is where I put common holidays or traditions under the microscope and see what makes them tick.

Easter

Easter is basically when “Jesus made that bunny lay an egg,” (quoting Stephen Colbert, a political comedian) at least, that’s what I thought as a child. So, I thought that Easter was when basically anything can happen. Though, according to actual facts, Easter is also known as ‘Ressurection Sunday’ because the holiday celebrates when Jesus was revived by the (mainly Catholic and Christian) god. Easter always occurs on “the first Sunday after (never on) the Paschal full moon.” Logomakr_3LtALB

Lent

Lent is from Ash Wednesday, not counting Sundays, when people of the Catholic religion give up something important to them until Easter in order to be closer to Jesus. Many times children and adolescents alike will give up candy, games, or electronics. Yet, adults generally give up books, sweets, or some form of entertainment.
