Now that I have typed about the rude people (15%) we can concentrate on 

the polite and friendly (85%)(both percentages from the 220th post).

At the Wayne County Fair I talked with the vendors I bought food from,

creamy chicken from the Dalton Bulldogs that is a high school and was

selling to benefit their sports program. Their wagon/booth was located

to the left if you are in the grandstands that faces north.

I bought a grilled chicken wrap with everything minus the cheese to 

include jalapeno that most people do not like. Their place, like the

Dalton Bulldogs, had wheels to move to another place for selling.

I bought a fish piece that was lightly coated and deep-fried from a 

place, like the first two above.  I smelled fish before I got there and

thinking that I have never found fish to purchase at a state or county 

fair before.

The sellers at these places are required to be friendly and polite and

I can usually tell if they are pretending, but I could see no evidence of

that in the three places that I bought food and I'm certainly glad for that.

Campaign 2016 updates: Trump, Clinton respond to New York bombing

Hillary Clinton renews her call for Silicon Valley to target terrorists 

'more vigorously'

(Matt Rourke / Associated Press)

"Hillary Clinton’s uneasy alliance with Silicon Valley is being tested 

yet again as she questions whether tech companies are doing all they 

can to find terrorists online and undermine their recruiting efforts.

“The recruitment and radicalization that goes on online has to be much 

more vigorously intercepted and prevented. I have been saying this for 

quite some time,” the Democratic presidential candidate said at a news 

conference Monday during which she responded to the bombings in 

New York and New Jersey over the weekend.

“The government cannot do this without the close participation of tech 

companies and experts online who can give us the tools and lead us to 

those who are attempting to promote attacks like we’ve seen.”

The role of tech in fighting terrorism was at the center of Clinton’s 

response to the latest attacks. She renewed her earlier calls for tech 

companies to step up, but those calls have been met with 

apprehension by firms that are struggling to balance the privacy 

demands of their clients -- and civil rights activists -- with demands 

from law enforcement that would enable more sophisticated and 

widespread surveillance.

The debate is reemerging as many tech activists demand former 

National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden receive a 

presidential pardon for disclosing massive secret government 

surveillance efforts online and as tech firms warn that billions of dollars 

of business will move offshore if they can not ensure client privacy.

But Clinton made clear that she would put pressure on the tech firms 

to step up their efforts to root out terrorists. She is putting the focus on 

Silicon Valley even as most of the big donors in that sector support her. 

While Clinton talks of balancing the needs of the tech industry with 

national security, her GOP rival, Donald Trump, tends to frame the 

tension as tech companies needlessly undermining law enforcement.

Even so, both candidates have made tech executives uneasy as they 

vow law enforcement will be more aggressively taking the terror fight 

to the Internet.

“We need to work more closely with Silicon Valley and other partners

to counter terrorist propaganda and recruitment efforts online,” Clinton 

said as she laid out her agenda for fighting Islamic State.

“Recruiters for ISIS and these other terrorists groups look for people who 

online demonstrate the mental profile, the level of paranoia, the level of 

delusion, the level of disappointment that then is exploited by quite able 

terrorist recruiters.”

"8 Myths About Healthy Eating You Need To Stop Believing.


August 12, 2016

By Amy Marturana

"You can find healthy eating advice on every corner. That doesn't mean 

it's good advice, though. Nutrition research can be confusing, and it's 

always changing. Throw in the sensationalistic headlines and the rate 

at which information is spread, and it's no wonder the nutrition tips or

suggestions you get from your friend are unsound. Best-case scenario, 

following bad advice means you unnecessarily avoid your favorite foods. 

Worst-case, you end up choosing the unhealthier option all while 

thinking you're making a better choice.

We zeroed in on eight myths about healthy eating that especially need 

to die."


7. Drink eight glasses of water per day. 

This one may seem a little counterintuitive, considering water is easily 

one of the most important things to consume. But as it turns out, there’s no 

science behind the myth that we need to drink eight glass a day.

Although most experts recommend water as the best beverage to consume,

it’s also present in coffee, tea, juice, fruits, vegetables and pretty much 

every other thing on the planet. Instead of stressing over those 64 ounces, 

experts say just listen to your body and drink when you’re thirsty. The 

crazy machine you’re living in knows exactly what it's doing.

8. Bathing daily promotes good hygiene.

This one’s a bonus for those who don’t feel like spending 20 minutes every 

day standing beneath a steady stream of water. Turns out, we don’t have to.

According to Joshua Zeichner, a dermatology professor at NYU, bathing is 

really more of a cultural thing. “We overbathe in this country and that’s 

really important to realize,” Zeichner told Buzzfeed. “A lot of the reason we 

do it is because of societal norms.”

In fact, showering too often can have a negative effect on your skin, shedding 

the useful bacteria that keeps your skin healthy and acts as a shield against 

bad bacteria. Washing too frequently also dries out your hair, leading to 

split ends and other signs of damage.

So save water and shower less often. It’s science!"

"A group of scientists at the Assam Agricultural University of Assam, India 

has claimed the Bhut Jolokia, once recorded as the hottest chilli in the 

world by the Guinness World Records, is losing its characteristic hotness

 with time. The scientists suggested changing agricultural patterns in 

Assam and cross-pollination as the main reasons.

 The scientists said according to their study the hotness of the chilli has 

reduced greatly in the past eight years. The hotness, which measured 

1.5 million Scoville heat units (SHU) in 2008, now measures only 0.4 

million SHU.

With this, the Bhut Jolokia loses its status as the world's hottest chilli, left 

behind by, reportedly, Carolina Reaper of the US and the Trinidad 

Moruga Scorpion of Trinidad and Tobago.

The scientists suggested cross-pollination and changing farming patterns 

in Assam were likely the causes. However, they still have to check other 

possible influences such as changing agro-climatic conditions.

Dr Hazarika of the team said, "We are now taking up some scientific works 

to maintain the original degree of pungency of bhot jolokia which we found 

eight years back".

In the apartment in Omaha, Nebraska where my son and daughter live 

there are a lot Indian (Asian) residents. The majority of those that I have 

encountered are friendly and polite.

The following sections will be delayed until I have finished typing the

story of the Wayne County and Ashland County Fairs.




I did not get much done in the flower gardens again yesterday. Like

I said yesterday I had an appointment with Dr Kwok at 10:20 AM and 

I did not even have time to water the flowers in the morning that had 

to wait until I got back.

Dr Kwok, again, offered to me a prescription for quitting smoking and 

for cholesterol but I declined them both. I also said that I needed a colon

exam and that I had 4 appointments on the same day at the Cleveland

Clinic. I believe that Dr Bargava who is the device doctor at the clinic 

said that I needed to be there at the clinic every 6 months to check my 

defibrillator, but time has passed and probably it has been 4 years or so. 

Dr Bargava, like he always does, will scold me and I'll tell him again

that the defibrillator has not shocked me for 18 years since the first one

was implanted and maybe saying "I'm sorry, but I don't think I have a 

need for that."
