TorrentFreak: World’s First Flying File-Sharing Drones in Action

Oh, don’t you just love this stuff?

‘In short the system allows the public to share data with the help of flying drones. Much like the Pirate Box, but one that flies autonomously over the city.

“The public can upload files, photos and share data with one another as the drones float above the significant public spaces of the city. The swarm becomes a pirate broadcast network, a mobile infrastructure that passers-by can interact with,” the creators explain.’

Whatever you may think of the morality of The Pirate Bay and/or of extre-jurisdictional flying file-sharing machines, you have got to admit that this is not just way cool, it is a formidable weapon against the ‘regulation’ which is systematically eradicating freedom of the internet.

In addition to the beauty of its purpose, it is an artform in its own right!  (If yo go to the article and scroll down a little, there is a video of this technological balet:  the colours change as files are accessed, the formations break apart and re-form….a work of art in its own right!)

Get all the smart kids together – then expose them to lead, mercury and asbestos

Oh, sometimes, I just want to give up…

Broadview Avenue Public School in Ottawa is one of the best schools around.  It is one of only 3 locations in Ottawa which has a program for students who have been identified as not just gifted, but exceptionally gifted.  Broadview houses both the English and French language versions of this most excellent program.

The school also houses exposed asbestos, lead paint and rich mercury deposits….along with exposed wires which are a fire hazard.

Now, I am not saying that super smart kids are better than other kids and deserve better conditions.  No kids should be exposed to these conditions!

However, to select kids specifically for intelligence and then put them into a school filled with chemicals known to decrease intelligence…that is not the most constructive course of action…

While my older son attended that school, he developed chronic fatigue – and environmental factors were suspected.  We even had our house tested for everything, from heavy metals to mold – and came up clean.  After years of this, with no way to help him, I was close to despair!

The problem resolved itself once he started high-school. Now he is away at University and his health is perfect!

I guess now we know what had made him sick…
