    So, here is the dumb question my brother posed: If a ship leaves earth and transmits "LIVE" video as it travels deep into space, would the transmissions continue to be live and real time even as it traveled months and years away from earth? At what point does that transmission actually delay or become part of the past? Bonus question: Assuming the craft continues travel directly away from earth, if it stopped transmitting and then restarted transmitting would that now be real time? Caveat: I don't know the distance that makes the transmission now a part of the past...

  • Detectives question lack of autopsy in Scalia death

    New York Post ^ | 02/15/16 | Jamie Schram and Bob Fredericks
    Veteran homicide investigators in New York and Washington, DC, on Monday questioned the way local and federal authorities in Texas handled the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. "It's not unreasonable to ask for an autopsy in this case, particularly knowing who he is," retired Brooklyn homicide Detective Patricia Tufo told The Post. "He's not at home. There are no witnesses to his death, and there was no reported explanation for why a pillow is over his head," Tufo said. "So I think under the circumstances it's not unreasonable to request an autopsy. Despite the fact that he has...

    An audience member who attended CNN’s Monday night town hall for Democratic presidential candidates appeared to unintentionally admit that CNN wrote questions beforehand for audience members to ask the candidates. The televised forum was hosted by Drake University and the Iowa Democratic Party and took place one week before Iowa voters head to the caucuses as the first state to help determine the primary. It was a chance for potential voters to ask the Democratic candidates questions to help determine their choice this Monday. One audience member named Brett Rosenberg began to ask a question to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton...
  • Question for Liberals

    Did America's Founder Make A Mistake? My question is for liberals but of course, anyone with an opinion is welcome to comment. Did the founders err by limiting the legislative powers of the new government? The Progressive Movement supports the premise that man's nature has improved since the founder's ratified the Constitution. The improvement means there is no longer a need to limit the powers of the elected. The founders gave the government just enough power to perform its primary function of protecting the people's rights, and no others. The Federalist Papers reasoned that limiting legislation powers would limit the...

    A major survey on financial literacy has just been published, and the results are terrible. McGraw Hill Financial (which owns S&P), the World Bank, and Gallup have produced the S&P Global Financial Literacy Survey, which attempted to get an idea of how financially literate the world is by polling 150,000 adults in more than 140 countries. The group defined financial literacy as the ability to answer three of four really simple questions about inflation, risk, and interest. Take a look. One of the easiest questions on the test is about interest. There is no compounding involved, and the numbers themselves...
  • U.S. justices question Obama administration electricity markets rule

    Yahoo News ^ | 10/14/15 | Lawrence Hurley - Reuters
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices on Wednesday expressed doubt about whether the Obama administration had the authority to issue a regulation aimed at encouraging efficiency in the electricity market by having electrical grid operators pay users to reduce consumption at peak times. The court heard oral arguments in an appeal filed by the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission seeking to reverse a May 2014 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that threw out the rule. The case pits the government's energy regulator against power companies that are fighting a regulation...
  • Mark Levin hopes CNN debate hosts will ask this Trump question in the debate tonight

    The Right Scoop ^ | 9-16-2015 | Mark Levin
    On last night’s show Mark Levin was explaining how the Republican establishment has always gone after non-establishment candidates, pointing out how they tried to brutalize Reagan just as they’ve tried to brutalize Cruz and now Trump. And the latest is that Bill Kristol is now trashing Trump, saying that he’d rather support a third party candidate than Trump as the nominee. So deep into his monologue on the topic, Levin mused that the CNN debate hosts should ask more nuanced version of the Republican nominee question Bret Baier asked in the Fox News debate, and they should ask it of...

    What was the question again? Greek voters confused by baffling 74-word referendum conundrum that demands a simple 'yes' or 'no' to decide country's future Greek voters who are facing a momentous vote tomorrow which may determine the country's future in Europe are confused by the baffling wording on the ballot paper. Nearly 10 million Greek voters will take to the ballot booths on Sunday to vote 'Yes' or 'No' in a referendum asking if they accept more austerity measures in return for bailout funds. But many are baffled by the strange wording of the 74-word question, which asks: 'Should the...

    I follow Hoover on twitter. I guess they are part of a federal task force or symposium on cyber security....good enough.... But lately their tweets seem awfully infatuated with the fact that they are getting some face time with Hussein. As if Valerie's ward REALLY CARES about protecting Americans..... The same team that has the NSA monitoring every American suddenly wants to be sure we are secure? Don't make me laugh.

Anyway, I use an old Win98 PC to emulate arcade games in the old case, and I have forgotten if this can be done...I am trying to idiot proof the machine so after I get it set up, people won't be messing with the OS. I would like to remove the My Computer and Recycle Bin icons from the desktop in Win98. Worst case, I could edit a blank Icon and rename them with blanks, but...
