Meditative video with 528Hz Solfeggio tone and a ∆7.82 (close to the so called Schumann Frequency which is 7.83.) Just less than 15 minutes long, it is great for relaxing, quieting the inside, stimulating creativity and spacing out.

Still Hate the New Split Screen

Okay. I posted the other day that the new “split screen” thing when one tries to go to ones Tumblr page from the dashboard was really irritating and useless and I didn’t like it at all. I got a response from the Tumblr team that all I had to do was hold down the Command key when I click my avatar and  “voilá!” no split screen. Well, because I can’t respond to comments made on my posts (for some reason…) I couldn’t tell the tech who responded that that was not the point. Someone was playing with scripts and codes and made the change AND THERE IS NO REASON FOR IT. IT DOES NOT MAKE THE USER EXPERIENCE ANY BETTER. But, that does not seem to be the concern of anyone at Tumblr. I would rather be able to respond to people who comment on my posts than get to see a split screen when I try to move from my dashboard to my page. Of course, nothing like that happens when I move from my page to my dashboard. Hmmm… maybe my aging brain just doesn’t understand the contemporary concept of “usefulness.”

Kids and Toy Guns

Driving home from the gym, I rounded the corner into my neighborhood to find two little boys, probably between 6 and 8 years old, with toy guns, pointing them at passers by and pretending to shoot them. I stopped the car and leaned out the window and said to them, “Don’t ever point a gun at another human being, even if it IS a toy gun.” Then one of the kids raised his gun again and pretended to shoot me. I parked the car and got out. “Where are your folks?” The kid ran to a male adult who was working on a car in the driveway. I repeated what I had said. The adult said, “Don’t point that thing at him.” The kid raised his gun again. The adult reiterated, “Put that thing down!” I said no more, got back in the car and drove home.

I wonder where people learn to be comfortable shooting people?

In 1797 Frere found a number of what looked to him like stone tools, “weapons of war, made by a people who had not the use of metals.” He was right, but no one would pay further attention to his discovery for the next 59 years. bladeandbone
