I admittedly haven’t been posting as much as I’d like since starting the new job with @steelseries so here’s a recent photo I took featuring our brand new headsets, the Arctis Pro’s. For whatever reason too, I’ve been enjoying the whole “levitating” look recently. This one was especially fun to work on since the wires add a little something extra since they’re moving away from the viewer. 🎧
An interesting observation:
I have noticed recently heavy advertising pertaining to government grants related to weight loss on YouTube. (Applicants can get up to $2500 dollars for losing 20 pounds or 17% of body weight, whatever is greater). I feel like a more beneficial approach would be to use the funds to subsidize restaurants and fast food organizations to provide healthy food options.
Here is a couple of reasons why! (My opinion 🤔)
✔ If you provide food chains with grants related to healthy food options, the impact of the benefit would be spread out across a larger audience.
✔ This could drastically reduce administrative barriers related to grant money being used, as only corporations would need to apply and not individual people. Reducing these barriers mean more people utilizing funds.
✔ Removes variances in difficulty to meet grant goals. Genetic characteristics and other factors related to differences in the ability for some people to lose weight easier on a relative basis.
✔Cut down the incremental cost of fresh, local, and organic ingredients relative to less healthy options. This will increase the share of healthy food options on menus that provide a proactive approach to obesity.
✔ (in some cases) Promoting diet emphasizes an overall change to lifestyle, in comparison to funding, for example, a short term boot camp style workout program.

Cambridge Analytica shows us the dark side of big data. According to reports by the Guardian and the New York Times, Cambridge Analytica and its partner company Strategic Communication Laborites (SCL) harvested the personal data of 50 million Facebook users. They have been accused of secretly keeping it even after Facebook forced them to sign a legally binding agreement that they had deleted it. In 2014, SCL created a Facebook app that asked users to take a personality quiz, thus handing this data as well as the data of their friends over to SCL and Cambridge Analytica. This personality quiz would identify them with one of the “Big Five” personality traits, then building personality profiles based on this data. The users were targeted with political advertisements that would evoke a certain emotional reaction with the intent of influencing the election. This is a common practice used on both sides of the aisle; collecting large amounts of data is key to winning any election. Edward Snowden tweeted Monday, “Businesses that make money by collecting and selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as 'surveillance companies’. Their rebranding as 'social media' is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.” Although his statement might be a little extreme, he makes a good point. Free services, including Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and many more, make their money by selling your data. You are not the customer, you are the product. Hopefully this situation will serve as a reminder to users that they probably shouldn’t “document” their entire lives on these social media platforms. Going forward, we should all stay informed on how companies use our personal data, and maybe take a bit more calculated approach when using these services.

The rumour Apple’s new MacBook might be getting touchscreen keyboards about getting that touchscreen to feel like a real keyboard. As such. Notice that this is being called a second display. That could mean Apple also intends to use this area to make a giant single screen, for second screen multitasking and, of course, for designers to use with an Apple Pencil for editing.
Could the touchscreen keyboard end up like this concept from Yanko Design?

#Facebook leads the headlines this week and not for favorable reasons, but who's really to blame? And ultimately who is responsible? #SocialMedia is rather new frontier, but many feel now is the time call the Wild West to order.
#CurrentEvents 📰 via @USAToday headline "Reports of Facebook data misuse spurs calls for regulation, scrutiny of social media firms"
So, for today's #TalkingTechnology topic let's discuss one of the rising concerns #Fakenews , or in particular #Clickbait .
Clickbait term for web content whose main goal is to entice users to click on a link to go to a certain webpage or video. Often times titles are sensationalized and lack much substance.
Clickbait headlines can detract from what you have to say. Sure it can works to get attention, but at what cost? What are long term effects of spreading lies (sorry "misinformation")? We All Share In The Responsibility "Those who repackage or share news content have a responsibility to not use deliberately or accidentally misinforming headlines, the world also needs to use and learn more basic news literacy skills if they wish for the population to remain informed instead of confused." 🌐 DailyTitan.com

A 66 block is a type of punchdown block used to connect sets of wires in a telephone system. Circuit pairs are connected to the block with a punch-down tool by terminating the tip wire on the leftmost slot of one row and ring wire on the leftmost slot of the row beneath the mating tip wire.
Punchdown blocks are the predecessors to patch panels and were commonly used to support low-bandwidth Ethernet and token-ring networks.
