    FR has been a great resource before, so I'll give it a whirl here: Some friends of mine have a rather "adventurous" teenage daughter. As a result, they are looking for recommendations on the best options to STEALTHILY monitor her Windows 10 PC and IOS smartphone. While I am an IT type, I have zero experience or knowledge of this stuff as I never really needed it with my now adult sons.

Newby was initially accused of leaving one of the children, ages 6 and 1, inside the car as she shopped at Sam's Club on May 26. When she showed up at the...
  • The Wisdom of Thomas Sowell

    08/23/2011 6:34:23 AM PDT · by day10 · 20 replies ^ | 8/23/2011 | Burt Folsom
    Economist Thomas Sowell is famous for his accurate analysis and for expertly separating fact from fiction. Let’s ponder some provocative statements from his book Controversial Essays. “The strongest argument for socialism is that it sounds good. The strongest argument against socialism is that it doesn’t work.” Yes, it sounds good to say that industries will be run by the state in the public interest, but such industries always fail, or perform badly. The Russians under Lenin virtually abolished private farms and created state-owned cooperatives to feed their population. The result: famine, and large imports of food from abroad. On a...

    Campaign watch: McCain’s money troubles In a stroke of near biblical irony, John McCain is in trouble over campaign financing again. When he was broke, and his campaign hit the skids last year, he opted for public financing as collateral for a $4-million loan. Of course, since then, his fortunes have improved dramatically, and he recently told the Federal Election Commission that he wants to opt out of public financing. By doing so, he would not be hamstrung by its $54-million spending cap in the primaries. Normally, McCain’s evading rules that he has spent half of his career to get...

    LAS VEGAS -- NBA All-Star Weekend in Vegas was an unmitigated failure, and any thoughts of taking the extravaganza to New Orleans in 2008 are total lunacy. An event planned to showcase what is right about professional basketball has been turned into a 72-hour display of why commissioner David Stern can't sleep at night and spends his days thinking of rules to mask what the NBA has come to represent. Good luck fixing All-Star Weekend. The game is a sloppy, boring, half-hearted mess. The dunk contest is contrived and pointless. The celebrity contest is unintended comedy. And, worst of all,...

    Here's a poser for you: you're trying to knock together a TV ad highlighting the effects of war on children. What's the plan? Well, you could go down the traditional route of earnest voice-over accompanying footage of said kids miserably awaiting a better life or, on the other hand, you could arm up a squadron of attack aircraft and go and raze a Smurf village to the ground. Let's face it, it's a toughie. Not for Unicef Belgium though, which earlier this week reduced an enchanted Smurf hamlet to smouldering rubble - much to the horror of some TV viewers...

    One day after Donald Seither's mobile home was ripped up by Hurricane Charley, the 74-year-old retiree picked up a friend's phone and pleaded for federal aid. Technically, he got it. But mostly, he got ticked off. Seeking the government's help, the Punta Gorda resident — after being put on hold for 2 1/2 hours — got through to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and told his tale: a damaged roof, shattered windows and no electricity. About a week later, a check from the U.S. Treasury came in the mail. Here, Seither figured, was the hundreds, maybe thousands, of dollars he...

    When Bob Knight took over at Texas Tech in 2001 he found at his recruiting disposal something that just about every college coach gladly uses to lure in top players. He found a fleet of pretty Tech coeds called the Raider Recruiters with the job of greeting prospective players at the airport and showing them around campus, among other things. While the vast majority of these types of tours are harmless exercises, the reason groups such as the Raider Recruiters are so popular everywhere is simple. Sex sells. Even – sadly, especially – in college recruiting. But not with Texas...

    The Atlantic 10 Conference is investigating an allegation that a Fordham University team manager may have used a walkie-talkie to relay Xavier's plays during a men's basketball game between the conference rivals. Xavier, which won the game 74-52 Saturday on its home court, made the allegation, said Ray Cella, the Atlantic 10 Conference's assistant commissioner for public relations.<>BR> Xavier sent a videotape of the game by overnight delivery Monday to the Atlantic 10 Conference office in Philadelphia, said Bill Thomas, a Xavier spokesman. ``We're going to talk to people and take a look at the tape, when we get it,...

    When Maurice Clarett was suspended last September for accepting thousands of dollars in extra benefits from a caterer from near his hometown and then attempting to conceal those gifts from NCAA investigators, Robert Dellimuti was portrayed by associates and even Ohio State coach Jim Tressel as a well-meaning guy trying to help an underprivileged kid. The tailback talked daily with his benefactor during the 2002 national championship season, sometimes on a cell phone paid for by Dellimuti. But Dellimuti was more than a fan of Maurice Clarett that year. He was a gambler.

    Sanctimonious whiners are special. They are the people who hold positions of high authority and use their pulpits to lecture the rest of us about proper behavior. The behavior they expect of us is the sort they’d never be caught engaging in themselves. Another word for them is hypocrite. With that brief introduction, we bring you our Whiner of the Week, NCAA President Myles Brand, who truly outdid himself in responding to an offer by the Gateway Corp. to finance a true national championship game between LSU and USC. Gateway proposed paying the schools a total of $30 million, with...

    <p>Please folks, don't start that "We should be happy for people...They are seeing nice gains in their 401k's..yadda yadda" Bottom line, this will HELP BUSH!</p> <p>I took a look at my IRA today and see it sitting at a three year high. I admit, for a moment, I felt a moment of glee, then I remembered who this is REALLY helping, big corporations, Bush's supporters, and the sheep who think he really did anything to boost the economy.</p>

    2 years ago, at the age of 33, my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. We thought we caught it early and she underwent a double mastectomy and went through the most radical chemotherapy regimen that you can get in an effort to defeat this thing and never see it again. We have 8 and 6 year old boys and she wanted to be done with it so she could take care of our kids. In mid-October she found a lump in her stomach, and had it biopsied. When the biopsy results returned she and I were in Las Vegas,...

    Co-Worker ^ | 9/19/2003 | day10
    I am looking for information for a co-worker. This is a very interesting story. The father of one of my co-workers passed away 2 weeks ago. (The link I supplied for this post goes to his obituary in my hometown newspaper.) His name was Joseph J. Becker, and he was a Staff Sergeant in Company C, 147th Infantry in WWII. On Guadalcanal, he received a Bronze Star. It was only a couple of years ago that my co-worker even found out about this award, and his father would never tell him what he did to receive it. He would just...
