Zune Phone to Beat iPhone to the Street?

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 10, 2007

CrunchGear’s Matt Hickey has been tracking rumors about a Zune phone for the last week. What began as a reliable tip is now a solid story: Last Monday Microsoft filed an application with the FCC for an enigmatic wireless device that could be used to talk over the Internet. The device is described as being used for “consumer broadband access and networking.” Microsoft goes on to say that the device would use OFDM as its communications protocol, not WiFi or Bluetooth. The standard OFDM (orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) is a modulation scheme that is used widely in upcoming 4G standards of the future. Sprint/Nextel may be the carrier, since they are building out a 4G network that will work with the OFDM standard.

And the most interesting part of the story is that this device may be available in May, a month before the iPhone.

Statistical Ignoramuses and Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 10, 2007

In modern scientific studies, it is important that competent statisticians have input into the data analysis phase. In climate science, many researchers seem to have forgotten that basic step. As a result, much of what most journalists and members of the public believe has been “proven” about climate change, is simply wrong.

I still think the Primary Goal of the Leftists pushing for lower emissions is the destruction of our economy so they can inflict us with another attempt at socialism.

Straight From The Jerusalem Boardroom #112, February 9, 2007

Yoram Ettinger

1. MORGAN STANLEY, Jan. 10, 2007: “Foreign capital flows to Israel surged from $3.2BN in 2002 to $11.6BN in 2005 and a record level of $23.4BN last year… The Shekel is fundamentally undervalued against the dollar and even more so against the euro… Despite geopolitical constraints and indeed the eruption of a guerilla war in Lebanon, the Israeli economy has continued to grow at a robust pace…Israel’s economy has the strength to withstand a global slowdown… The Bank of Israel has opted for monetary easing and lowered short-term interest rates even below those in the US…Consumer price inflation declined from 3.8% in April to minus 0.3% in November… Budget deficit [was reduced] from 5.4% of GDP in 2003 to 0.9% last year… The current account surplus is not just a cyclical phenomenon. Israel’s current account balance moved from a deficit of 0.5% of GDP in 2002 to a surplus of 2.9% in 2005 and about 6% [surplus] last year…” (Globes, Jan. 11, 2007).

Islamist Video of US Chinook Shootdown

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 10, 2007

I am posting this for informational purposes. We are at war, and if we withdraw from Iraq, I guarantee you they will follow our troops here. See how many of your liberties remain intact thereafter. Perhaps then the Hate America First crowd will get a taste of Quisling in their mouths.

*Update:
I have been informed that the video has been removed from you tube. I will post it either there, or to another account later this afternoon when I can get to a fast connection at the local library if I can’t find it on Live Leak first.

Okay…Below is the Live Leak post. My internet provider, DNET has decided that Live Leak is to be blocked for their users and I have had to visit the local library to get this posted. I plan on pushing this issue with them because, in my view, if they block one video-sharing site, they should block them all, since one can find indecent material on all of them. I will likely be switching providers.

Elie Wiesel Attacked in San Fransisco By Holocaust Denier

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 10, 2007

SAN FRANCISCOIn a bizarre attack, a well-known author and Holocaust scholar was dragged out of a San Francisco hotel elevator by an apparent Holocaust denier who reportedly had been trailing him for weeks.

Police escorted Elie Wiesel to San Francisco International Airport on Feb. 1 after a man accosted Wiesel in the elevator at the Argent Hotel, at 50 Third St., after Wiesel participated in a panel discussion at a peace conference and before Wiesel was scheduled to catch a flight back to New York.

Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor and author of more than 40 books, including the memoir “Night,” about his experiences at Auschwitz, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. Last fall, the Boston University professor was suggested as a possible replacement for Israeli President Moshe Katsav, who faces sexual assault charges.

Read more about Elie Wiesel and his best-selling book “Night.”

Police confirmed this week that the attack took place and that officers escorted Wiesel to the airport following the attack. According to police, the suspect accosted Wiesel in the hotel elevator at around 6:30 p.m., saying he wanted to interview him. Wiesel said he would do the interview in the lobby. That’s when the attacker pulled him out of the elevator, police reported.

In a posting Tuesday on the anti-Zionist Web site ZioPedia, a writer using the name Eric Hunt takes credit for the attack: “After ensuring no women would be traumatized by what I had to do (I had been trailing Wiesel for weeks), I stopped the elevator at the sixth floor. I pulled Wiesel out of the elevator. I said I wanted to interview him.”

Wiesel grabbed at his chest and yelled for help, according to the posting. “I told him, ‘Why don’t you want people to know the truth?’ His expression changed, and he began screaming again. …” the posting reads.Police reported that the suspect tried to force Wiesel into one of the rooms, but ran away when Wiesel started yelling.

Commentary

These Holocaust Deniers are as nutty as the 9/11 Conspiracy Nuts. I have attempted to debate some of these people via email, and in person, and they always, alway resort to ad hominem attacks when their arguments are exposed as untrue, and once had to physically subdue an unhinged conspiracy nut.
One thing I will say about the people of the jewish religion is that they have always functioned as canaries for civilization. When you see them attacked and assailed, you know that there is danger lurking for the rest of us.
The Holocaust Deniers and 9/11 Conspiracy Nuts are being used as pawns by spiritual forces of a dark nature as they try to create justification for wiping those people out of existence, as has been tried since time immemorial. It is a hatred that has to be seen first hand to be understood, or at least appreciated as something not natural.
I have spoken to members of The Ayran Brotherhood, the Church of the Creator, Skinheads, Wahhabis, Shi’a, Sunni, Deobandi, Salafists, and 9/11 Conspiracy Nuts and one thing these people all share in common is hatred of the Jew, or the Politically Correct stand-in the neo-con. These people outnumber the Jew at least 100 to 1 and are still impotent to wipe them out. Why?
Why have they not been able to wipe out the Jews? I hold that they are stupid beyond belief because they have been blinded spiritually to the truth.

Elie Wiesel has survived. He survived those who have set up the death camps, and he has survived those who deny the death camps existed. He has survived hate yet again. May God Bless him to continue doing so.

Do you want to experience the kind of hatred I am talking about? Get yourself a posterboard and write something pro-Israel upon it and stand with it in a public place. Be sure you bring some friends along to film the results.
