To Kind Heart! Son of fallen sheriff deputy outbid on dad's squad car but handed keys by stranger; food pours in for 81yo man

May 14, 2015 - son of fallen sheriff's deputy Sam Brownlee was outbid on his dads squad car, but was handed the keys by a stranger - a local farmer Steve Wells paid $60,000 for the $12,500-valued car (per Kelley Blue Book) who declined an interview with ABC affiliate KMGH, saying he did not want to take away Tanner’s moment as he got behind the wheel of his dad’s car.

Two Colorado brothers clinging to the memories of their father -- his squad car. And nearly five years after losing him, Tanner and Chase Brownlee had the chance to bid on it. Weld County Deputy Sam Brownlee was killed in the line of duty in 2010 after a police chase. The County Sheriff’s office auctioned off the his squad car on Wednesday to raise money for C.O.P.S, or Concerns of Police Survivors, an organization that helps survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

"It'd mean a lot to me and my brother. We've been through a lot," Tanner told ABC affiliate KMGH. "This is kind of the end of Sam's legacy here. It's the last tangible thing we have that he was connected to," said Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams.  read more »

Heavily rely on technology? ipad glitch grounds commercial airplane, delays 54 flights in 2 days. Rethink paper vs digital?

American Airlines planes were grounded due to a ipad glitch

(quote)

An APP glitch on pilot’s iPads has seen more than 50 American Airlines flights delayed in the past two days due to a failure in navigation-map software. A spokeswoman for the airline, Andrea Huguely, said that pilots were deleting and reinstalling the map app to fix the problem.

Huguely said that 24 flights were delayed Tuesday night and about 30 on Wednesday. She said no flights were cancelled. However, some passengers said on social media that they left planes after pilots announced delays.

Several American Airlines flights were delayed today after glitches were reported in a third-party software application before takeoff, according to the airline.
"In some cases, the flight has had to return to the gate to access a WiFi connection to fix the issue," an American Airlines spokeswoman said in a statement to ABC News. "We apologize for the inconvenience to our customers. We are working to have them on the way to their destination as soon as possible."

Pilots rely on a third-party application on their iPads to access flight plans and maps, according to the airline.

The issue persisted for a few hours until American implemented a workaround for the few flights that had been impacted. The airline said only some of the iPads with the software were affected and that it was not a widespread issue.  read more »

Magic of diet: simple but powerful! 6'7" entertainer drops fr 330 to 225 lbs: Dec-March, eats meatless food with less sugar/salt

how Penn Jillette Lost 105 Lbs. In 4 months

Is it nonsense or common sense?
Overweight means carrying useless fat, making each move or step unpleasantly heavy.
It is and so true that waistline is life line: fat around belly and waist is literality sitting and pressing and damaging liver and kidneys.

Here is a true person’s 100-day drastic expedition, and he has brought about a miracle, admirable (!) -
- his high blood pressure landed him in the hospital
- on six very powerful meds to bring the blood pressure down
- Doc said something in passing that completely blew his mind:
‘If you got down to 230, you probably wouldn’t need any of the meds.’
Penn Jillette needed to shake off around 105 Lbs, and he did it, reaching his goal weight on his birthday, March 5: the 6’7” entertainer 225-lbs happy and healthy, away from 330-lbs unhealthy misery: meatless food with much less sugar and salt
Wise choice!
Magic diet (so simple yet super powerful)!

Smartphone Addiction: More Than Half Of Smartphone Owners Believe They Suffer From Nomophobia

Smartphones and the Thin Line between Effective Communication and Overwhelming Addiction

(quote)
*update* May 2, 2015
Dr Frank Lipman: I believe multi-tasking is over-rated! Recently, I saw a study that said the average smartphone user checks their device about six times an hour. Small wonderso many people these days are feeling distracted and overwhelmed! Making matters worse is that we are the ones constantly interrupting ourselves, tapping that Pavlovian bell we call the smartphone, checking it when it’s buzzing and when it’s not.

If you have your smartphone next to you all the time – even when you sleep – then perhaps it’s time to question what this level of attachment means. Often, it’s easier to observe behaviours in other people than notice behaviours in ourselves.
Try this out. Watch how other people around you use their smartphones. Notice how frequently they check them. Does their level of use seem healthy to you? Researchers suggested that smartphones should carry a health warning so that users know they are potentially addictive.  read more »
