Kid falls off a tower after climbing up

| April 26, 2017 | 0 Comments




Allegedly a suicide but it looks like he slipped ….. there appears to be another person taking photo’s at the top of the tower, while the person who falls is a little lower at just to the left. Very possible the victim was wanting more “Likes” on social media ? Other reports suggest that it was a genuine suicide after he had an argument with his baby-momma who cheated on him, and that firemen had set up an airbag, but there seems to be a lack of activity supporting this.

Basic income just got a standing ovation at TED

| April 26, 2017 | 0 Comments



Universal basic income — a system of wealth distribution that involves giving people a monthly wage just for being alive — just got a standing ovation at this year’s TED conference.

Rutger Bregman, a Dutch historian and basic income advocate, gave a talk on the subject in which he explored a crucial question: Why do the poor make such poor decisions?

Poverty isn’t a character flaw, Bregman explained. People in poverty tend to eat less healthfully, save less money, and do drugs more often because they don’t have their basic needs met.

Bregman suggested that creating a system of basic income would be the quickest and easiest way to meet those needs.

“Poverty is not a lack of character. Poverty is a lack of cash,” he said, before the TED crowd of 1,000-plus rose to its feet.

Bregman’s standing ovation reflects the particular appeal that basic income is gaining among America’s technologists.

People in Silicon Valley are working to build autonomous robots that could replace human labor. But as economists have started speculating about the ways those innovations could lead to widespread unemployment, many tech elites have begun searching for solutions to the problem they’re creating.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Y Combinator President Sam Altman, and Facebook Cofounder Chris Hughes have all endorsed basic income. (Altman and Y Combinator are leading a basic-income trial in Oakland.) On Twitter, venture capitalist Chris Sacca remarked Bregman’s talk was “devastatingly provocative and enlightening.”

Basic income has gained new life in the last few years. It started as a niche economic theory in the late 1960s, promoted by Milton Friedman, but a wave of basic income trials around the world has propelled the idea towards the mainstream.

Experiments are currently under way in Finland, Kenya, and Oakland, California, and new ones are expected to launch later this year in the Netherlands and Canada.

According to Bregman, we already have the means, the research, and the need for basic income. All that’s left is the action, and judging by the reaction to Bregman’s talk, the TED crowd seems to agree.

Dashcam Video Shows Man And Officer Struggle Over Gun

Overland Park, KS – Dashcam video released Tuesday shows a man fighting with an Overland Park, Kansas police officer over a gun. According to police, the officer tried to pull over a suspect. The man, now identified as 34-year-old Bradley Poland, was allegedly driving the wrong way down 103rd Street. Police said when Poland stopped, the officer got out of his patrol car, but Poland quickly sped off. Moments later he crashed. Investigators said Poland then got out and started to walk off. As the officer approached Poland, he told Poland to show him his hands. When he did, the officer said he noticed Poland was holding a pistol. The officer quickly grabbed Poland’s arm. After a struggle, the officer got ahold of the weapon. Once he did, police said Poland refused to put his hands behind his back. The officer then pulled him to the ground and held him down until backup arrived.
