What use could a butterfly be to smartphone and tablet technology? Well, you know that annoying glare that most of the screens have in the sun as the light reflects off their surfaces? Researchers think the structure of this butterfly’s wings could help fix that problem. There are companies out there that sell Anti-glare Screen Protectors to fix the problem.
Jennifer Hensely, executive director for the Association for a Better New York, contends that the tests are necessary to measure teacher performance. The nonprofit business group backs the K-12 math and English standards and Hensely said she hopes parents and children will be more open minded about the Common Core exams. She needs to take Common Core exams to see if she can pass it since she’s for it.

Granny should have made the would-be robber throw the knife away to which the knife is not reachable. Make the would-be robber get on his knees with his hands in the air: but keep a safe distance from would-be robber so he would not lunge to get your gun. Give a very long lecture to the would-be robber until the cops arrive as you held the would-be robber at gun point. Cops cannot tell a good guy from a bad guy.
I just want to say this….to get it out this case scenario out of my head… to which it might not work at all since granny is by herself.

Earth Day https://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/world/earth-day
Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which day events ….. a national holiday celebrating communism in 1955 by Nikita Khrushchev…. anniversary of the birth of Vladimir Lenin.
I left all My lights on al day. Threw a car battery in the federal woods, and wantonly cut down lots of trees to celebrate the day. And of course threw all My trash out the car window. Great Day.
Another Commie day is May 1, it is getting close. May pole involved, could also be Gay Day.
Why was not the old, forgotten bank account
“At that time, it was Landmark Bank. Then it became Bank of America,” Helinkski told WFTS.
As it turns out, the account had been sitting for a while — and had accumulated money in it. WFTS reported that the man’s Social Security checks had been pilling up inside it for years, leaving enough money for Helinkski to purchase permanent housing. — Escheated to the State of Florida.

Picture of a Pistol – Crime Rates
Best States vs Worst States
5 x Difference
States – The Lowest Crime Rate Column
States – The Highest Crime Rate Column:
49. New Mexico
Wow wallethub.com rank Alaska #50 as The Highest Crime Rate
The usual Regressive bull excrement. Put a picture of a gun on the table for the rate of ALL violent crimes, and the stupid peasants will think it's FIREARM crime.
You can't get numbers for "all violent offenses committed with firearms" from the FBI - but you can get numbers for "murders committed with firearms." Alaska has one of the LOWEST rates for that - 2.2 per 100,000.
Pop quiz - who do you think the HIGHEST rate for "murders committed with firearms" is? That's right, students - Washington DC, with 12.5 per 100,000 - more than five times the rate in Alaska.
But, but, but... Alaska has such a high violent crime rate! Yup. They lead the nation, by far, in aggravated assault. Which is NOT surprising in the least to any honest criminologist. Coop people up in close quarters for (at least) half the year, and you're going to get a LOT of fights. Same thing, actually, as in DC - except the Alaskans cope with it for at least twice the time, settle it with their fists, and only RARELY kill anyone that way (2 murders by "hands, fists, feet, etc." in the latest FBI stats - which you can't even express with a "per 100,000" number).

Lost Luggage Store – Unclaimed Baggage Center one of the most unique Alabama tourist attractions
Come browse our selection of lost luggage – you never know what you’ll find! https://www.unclaimedbaggage.com
Unclaimed Baggage Center
509 W Willow St
Scottsboro, AL 35768
People should type up their name address and phone number and email address on a 8×11 piece of paper and put several sheets in every exterior zippered pocket of their luggage and put several pieces of paper inside their luggage. With several sheets of paper with all your information on it stuffed into several interior and exterior pockets ..there is no reason not to find the luggage owner.
Or buy actual dog tags (you get 2 for $5.00 including shipping and 2 chains also) Engrave your name, address phone number (with area code) onto the 2 dog tags and attach them to the inside of the luggage (not outside) and if the luggage gets wet, the dog tags survive.
I buy “people” dog tags for my cat and dog. (don’t get the pet tags – too small). They come in different colors and last FOREVER never wear down so can always read the words/numbers. Get the military emboss. Buy those small key chain rings to slide the dog tag on and slide the key chain ring around the collar cloth itself. Don’t get the cheap rings either..they kind that bend easy. I got a red dog tag for my deaf cat in case he gets outside . He also wears a plain tag and both tags have a ton of information FULL ADDRESS full phone number including word micro-chipped.
