Google’s Influence For Ever On Your Childs Life

I have been going to the site of Dr Mercola for years. Reason I like the way he researches and finds alternative medicines, exercises, and like today important information that will affect our lives. I believe he is so right about this subject on Google. It is dangerous and manipulative, way more that we want our children and Grandchildren’s life to be affected. Please listen to what he has to say and think long and hard  about making some changes in your life. Getting rid of Google and facebook for that matter and rid Gmail as it is a threat to our (not mine so much as I am closer to pushing up daisies) children’s  freedom. Most will read this and think ho hum, but be warned.

“If you don’t do different nothing will change”

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • More than half of American K-12 schools use Chromebooks and Google apps, allowing Google to build brand loyalty from an early age
  • Google’s primary business is tracking, compiling, storing and selling personal data. By capturing children at an early age, it will be able to build the most comprehensive personality profiles of the population ever conceived
  • By the time these children have grown into adulthood, every single preference, thought, belief and proclivity will be known about them, which will make them extremely vulnerable to manipulation
  • Google allows hundreds of third-party software developers to access the emails of Gmail users, and they’re not just using software to scan for keywords. In some cases, employees are actually reading the emails
  • By default, Google Chrome allows any and all tracker cookies to follow your every move online

Did You Know 07/15/2013 – These Women Invented………

1.Weaving Straw Into Hats.
Mary Kies was the first American woman to earn a patent in her own name.  In 1809, she developed a way of weaving straw into hats that was an economic boon for New England. By receiving that piece of paper with her name on it, Kies led the way for other female inventors to take credit for their ideas.

2.Circular Saw

In the late 18th century, a religious sect known as the Shakers emerged. Shakers valued living communally (albeit celibately), equality between the sexes and hard work. Tabitha Babbitt lived in a Shaker community in Massachusetts and worked as a weaver, but in 1810, she came up with a way to lighten the load of her brethren. She observed men cutting wood with a pit saw, which is a two-handled saw that requires two men to pull it back and forth. Though the saw is pulled both ways, it only cuts wood when it’s pulled forward; the return stroke is useless. To Babbitt, that was wasted energy, so she created a prototype of the circular saw that would go on to be used in saw mills. She attached a circular blade to her spinning wheel so that every movement of the saw produced results.  Babbitt didn’t apply for a patent for the circular saw she created.

3.Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ruth Wakefield had worked as a dietitian and food lecturer before buying an old toll house outside of Boston with her husband. Traditionally, toll houses were places weary travelers paid their road tolls, grabbed a quick bite and fed their horses. Wakefield and her husband converted the toll house into an inn with a restaurant. One day in 1930, Wakefield was baking up a batch of Butter Drop Do cookies for her guests. The recipe called for melted chocolate, but Wakefield had run out of baker’s chocolate. She took a Nestle chocolate bar, crumbled it into pieces and threw it into her batter, expecting the chocolate pieces to melt during baking. Instead, the chocolate held its shape, and the chocolate chip cookie was born.

4.Liquid Paper
Bette Nesmith Graham was not a very good typist but very innovative
It was the 1950s, and the electric typewriter had just been introduced. Secretaries often found themselves retyping entire pages because of one tiny mistake, as the new model’s carbon ribbon made it difficult to correct errors.
One day, Graham watched workers painting a holiday display on a bank window. She noticed that when they made mistakes, they simply added another layer of paint to cover them up, and she thought she could apply that idea to her typing blunders. Using her blender, Graham mixed up a water-based tempera paint with dye that matched her company’s stationary. She took it to work and, using a fine watercolor brush, she was able to quickly correct her errors. Soon, the other secretaries were clamoring for the product, which Graham continued to produce in her kitchen. Graham was fired from her job for spending so much time distributing what she called “Mistake Out,” but in her unemployment she was able to tweak her mixture, rename the product Liquid Paper and receive a patent in 1958.

Knight-Margarete
5. The Square-bottomed Paper Bag
Margaret Knight didn’t invent the paper bag, but those first paper bags weren’t all that useful for carrying things. In 1870, she created a wooden machine that would cut, fold and glue the square bottoms to paper bags.
she was granted the patent for the device in 1871.

Termites – A Termite mound is the tallest non human construction on earth.The world’s tallest non-human structures are built by Australian or African termites. If a human being were the size of an average termite, the relative size of a single termite nest is the equivalent of a 180 story building–almost 2000 feet high. It would easily be the tallest building in the world. How is it possible that this tiny creature has the engineering know-how to erect an edifice of this magnitude? Obviously this knowledge is innate to the termite. The process of construction, the materials and correct combination of materials to yield an elegant, structurally efficient and durable structure is simply awe-inspiring. Source


Domestic cat – Is the only cat species able to hold its tail vertically while walking. All wild cats hold their tains horizontally or tucked between their legs while walking – Source
