Former Bill Clinton Adviser Says Hillary Will Be Indicted, Forced Out Of Presidential Race Over Email Scandal submitted by iam to politics

Time to get Bernie locked in as the best dem candidate. Forget Hillary's "understudies" like Biden, Al Gore, etc.

FCC Rules Block use of Open Source submitted by Trendy_News to technology

As annoying as Microsoft has been, I don't think it is them. They have been promoting IoT, raspberry pi, etc. and gave $70 million to cyanogen (from cyanogenmod which is an open source android mod for smart phones).

My guess is someone at the FCC saw something like the long range WIFI hack someone did a while back. Or ATT/Verizon/NSA doesn't want users installing open source software on phones used on their network. Google probably doesn't want to loose control of android either.

TIL before the Industrial Revolution, people historically slept in two separate sleep cycles instead of receiving 8-hours of sleep, and were active in the waking hours in between. submitted by fairdreamer to TIL

Yeah me too. I've been ill for the past couple months and had trouble sleeping. First I overslept a lot. Then I started waking up in the middle of the night, startled. I've heard people always say "if you have insomnia and can't go back to sleep in 5 minutes or less, get up and do something for 10-15 minutes, then go back to sleep when you are tired." Turns out, I'm up for hours now instead of just 10-15 minutes, before ever going back to sleep again. I feel pretty well rested.

Do you enjoy cooking? submitted by obi-1 to AskVoat

fairdreamer 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Yes. And I think cooking has only gotten better after I obtained a mortar and pestle and whole spices.

Yeah, I can see how it can be bad. But maybe people don't get angry enough and aren't allowed to stand up for themselves and venting is a healthy release.
