9/11: The Rise of the Surveillance State
September 10, 2016, 11:00 pm


On September 11, 2001, nineteen al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airliners and flew three of them into the Pentagon and the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. The fourth plane, which was reportedly headed to the White House, crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. By days end, almost 3,000 souls had perished and another 6,000 people were injured. The New York city skyline and the American political landscape were both changed. Fifteen years later, it appears that another casualty of that day was privacy. The Twin Towers came down and the surveillance state rose.

    Havok Quarter Century Watch
    September 10, 2016, 11:30 am

    submitted by Mikey Bautista

    Let’s face it, there are a lot of cheap watches out there. Cheap?not inexpensive?meaning low-quality materials and production. For many of these timepieces, you get what you pay for, a watch that would inevitably be only right twice a day. But what if you could get a watch that trims the fat while still providing excellent value, and at the same time only gives you the features you need?

    For their third crowdfunded watch, Havok Timepieces out of San Francisco set out to do just that. With the Quarter Century, they took the concept of an inexpensive watch, found functional alternatives to the usual materials, and focused on the features watch enthusiasts look for. We’re talking Italian natural leather, Swiss Ronda movement, and a Sapphire crystal, packaged in the minimal style of a classic dress watch. By forgoing a deeper water resistance and more exotic case metals, they’re able to streamline manufacturing to give you a more affordable watch. Affordable?not cheap?which is why Havok will stand by the 25-year warranty the Quarter Century is named after.

    So now you have a choice to make. Buy cheap and buy twice (or thrice…), or pick up the Havok Quarter Century and own a quality timepiece for the next 25 years? Seems like an easy choice, so back one in your choice of colorway at the Kickstarter link below.

    The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly False | Hillary Clinton wrongly says it’s ‘legal’ to fire employees for discussing pay ‘in most places’

    In June, two Kansas teens were fired from their summer job at a local pizza joint for asking why one of the two — a girl — was getting paid 25 cents less an hour than her male friend, who was doing the same job with the same level of work experience. The manager told the two employees they were being let go because discussing wages is against company policy. This is legal, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said, after telling the teens’ story to an audience in Tampa, Fla. "And you know what? That's legal," she said in …

    In much simpler times when gentleman wanted to settle a dispute of honor they called for a duel. ?Choose your weapons? was the traditional start of the events once they had assembled. Dueling pistols, swords, even Bowie knives were sometimes used as tools to settle the disputes. Although it sometimes played out with each party firing into the air and then walking away with honor in tact or regained as the case may be – with no harm done.It did not always end without loss and there are some very famous duels in our US history.
