Felony Stupidity

by

“Felony stupidity” was what Fran Townsend, a former Homeland Security adviser, referred to the incident happened in New York yesterday.

 

 

New Yorkers started to panic when noticing a jet flying very low nearby the Twin Towers which got terrorist attack in  9/11 incident. People screamed, run, and cried because they thought this was another terrorist attack. In fact, this jet was the aircraft which functions as Air Force One when the president is aboard. The purpose was to take part in a classified, government-sanctioned photo shoot. The president wasn’t on the this Air Force One.

 

The news reported that the president Obama was furious about it. Finally, someone stepped up and took the full responsibility.

Hmm…This is a bad judgement to do something like this! Thanks God … nobody got hurt from panic attack.

New Flu

by

Now there is a new flu going on in Mexico and now spread to the United States. The new strain of flu that has killed up to 60 people in Mexico and infected eight in the US (CA and TX). The news also reported that there’s evidence of possible human-to-human transmission going on. So, please be careful!! A normal detector cannot detect this type of flu. You have to be very cautious.

Tokidoki Characters

Tokidoki has produced so many things, such as toys, accessories, footwear, clothes, etc. Why has it become so popular? I think it’s because of his unique creativity inspired by street lifestyle and fashion and combined with Japanese illustration influences. Each character has his/her own personality and vivid colors.

FAKE ATM Card Reader – Be Careful

by

This is real! I have read or seen pictures of this type of card skimmer, but that was from forwarded email. I know it is still happening in Thailand. It seems this kind of criminal incident happens everywhere! So, for those ATM card users, please be careful.

 

I found a story about a guy caught the ATM card skimmer attached before the real ATM card reader. This card skimmer will read your ATM card and record all the information into a flash memory attached in the back.  It happened at a local WaMu bank. Please see pictures below.

 

 

 

When inserting your ATM card to the machine, please be careful. If you see that it looks suspicious or it looks like the card reader is not belong there, contact a cop and notify that local bank immediately.

Trash House

by

Yahoo has feature this article from New York Time. Randy Polumbo renovated his Mojave Desert house with rocks and steel and filled it with stuff the people don’t want or use anymore  (or you can call “trash” haha).

 

It’s not as bad as you think, is it? Let’s take a look inside

 

 

The owner and house builder of this trash house, Mr. Polumbo, works as a high-end contractor in Manhattan. Mr. Polumbo has a good point of view when he mentioned that the phrase “green construction” generally refers to the latest technologies and costs a fortune. I totally agree on that. I mean “green construction” sounds like it will cost you much, but no. The recycle materials are so expensive, especially for those saving-energy technology. It easily costs you a fortune!

 

He also has interests in casting glass from bottles and telegraph insulators he found in the desert into different shapes. He’s so creative! You can read more about his interview and watch a video clip by clicking here

On March 18, an undersea volcano erupted off the coast of Tonga shooting clouds of smoke, steam and ash thousands of feet into the sky above the South Pacific ocean. This is very scary! But, thanks God, the geologists said there was no apparent danger to residents of Nuku’alofa and others living on the main island of Tongatapu.
