Can Google Save the United States Post Office From a Bankruptcy Meltdown – Yes, Not How You Think Liteblue USPS Gov Login

Well, the United States Postal Service has decided to raise the price of first-class stamps by one penny. No, that will not be enough to solve their financial woes, legacy costs and underfunded pensions, or get them into a profitable situation.Liteblue USPS Gov Login The reality is that they can’t raise the price of stamps too much, where people will simply stop using the mail altogether, in many regards that has already happened; hasn’t it? Sure, due to electronic communications, e-mail, fax machines, text messaging, and what have you, things have changed. Things will get even worse as 3-D printing becomes more prevalent. Okay so let’s talk. usps liteblue

Well then, what must be done to save the United States post office you ask? Maybe it’s time to Google it? That is to say that maybe Google can save the USPS from a complete bankruptcy meltdown. Am I suggesting that Google needs to partner with the USPS, or take over its operations? No, rather, what I suggest is that Google’s autonomous vehicle technology, at its Google X research division, come up with a self-driving postal delivery vehicle.

Interestingly enough, this wouldn’t be as difficult as you might think. After all, the vehicle would drive the exact same route every single day, it would stop at the exact same mailboxes which are in the exact same position that they’ve always been. Isn’t it time that we take inexpensive robotics which can sort the mail, load the delivery vehicles, and then send them out by themselves? You might think we are talking about all science fiction here, but I assure you I am not. You see, I was at the first DARPA Challenge and it is amazing how far this technology has come since then in only a decade. It’s almost ready now for what I propose.

There is an interesting research paper I think you should read titled; “CarSpeak: A Content-Centric Network for Autonomous Driving,” by Swarun Kumar, Lixin Shi, Nabeel Ahmed, Stephanie Gil, Dina Katabi and Daniela Rus Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2012).

Indeed, after you read that research paper I think you’ll agree with the authors that soon we will have automatic garbage collector vehicles which drive autonomously as well. It’s just one more step in integrating the robotic control systems that sort the mail allowing them to load the postal jeeps for them to go out and do their service. They have all the sensors, optical reading systems, and communications systems needed to get this done. That would save the United States Postal Service a huge amount of money and prevent them from going bankrupt because they wouldn’t have any employees to pay.

 

2011 Spring and Summer Clothing Fashion Trend Part Two – Strip Clothing

Fashion is one of the many aspects of life that a lot of people are very passionate about. Though some people are more intrigued by it than others, whatever may be one’s level of involvement or attachment to fashion, it is worthwhile to ask and answer the question, are all men’s and shopping assistant women’s clothing fashion good or not? Before we get into the details of considering if all women’s and men’s clothing fashions are good or not, let us first remind ourselves what fashion is. Fashion is a trending design or style in a culture. Fashion is ephemeral, it changes from time to time and even from culture to culture. What is fashionable in a certain time may be considered outdated or archaic in another time. For instance the styles and designs of women’s and men’s clothing worn in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries are quite different from the designs and styles of women’s and men’s clothing worn in the twenty-first century. Even within the same century, the styles and designs of women’s and men’s clothing half a century ago are different from the styles and designs of women’s and men’s clothing in the technological age of the 2000s, even though some of the styles and designs of the forties and fifties and slightly making their way back into the modern culture.

Who Determines the Trend and Styles of Women’s and Men’s Clothing?

Fashion designers very often initiate the trending designs and styles of women’s and men’s clothing. They design men’s and women’s clothing based on the culture and values of the people. They tend to design these clothing based on what they think men and women of that age will appreciate wearing. For instance when women got into the work force, much of the women’s fashion shifted from flowing gowns to cooperate wears; skirts suits, pant suits, two piece dress sets, 2 piece pant sets, jeans, dress pants, stylish blouses and tops and so on, all these different women’s outfits were designed to meet the needs of the modern woman. As women get more and more sophisticated, fashion designers also follow along with more sophisticated designs and styles to meet the taste of the modern woman. We see this sophistication of designs in different forms of dresses such as evening gowns, curtail dresses, women’s church dresses and suits, designer winter coats and what have you. Apparently it is not only women who are sophisticated, men are equally getting more sophisticated and it is also being reflected in men’s clothing or outfits, for example there are assorted styles of men’s suits, such as NY suits, modern European style suits, Italian suits, “sharp suits” and so on. Most modern men no longer have t-shirts everyday on their back, if they are not dressed in suit with men’s dress shirts, matching ties and cufflinks, they are in blazers, sports-coats or jackets and these jacket are available in assorted designes and styles including winter wool jackets.

Are Men’s and Women’s Clothing Fashion Good or Not?

Whether a trending style or design of women’s and men’s clothing is good or not, is a matter of opinion. Opinions are neither good nor bad, what is important is that people respect each other’s opinions and none should be coerced into accepting an opposing opinion for any reason. Let us take a quick peek at some of the trending styles in the NYC fashion week show fall 2013. Among the fashion designers in the fashion show is Jason Wu, who designed the evening gowns Mrs. Obama, the first Lady wore for the two inaugurations of President Obama. According Jason Wu he did not have any theme for the 2013 fall fashion show, but he simply intended to portray a “grown-up look”. His collections for the fashion show fall 2013 featured only women’s clothing such as; women’s coats with a touch of military pomp, different designs and colors of long evening gowns, stylish short dresses, pants, blouses and tops. There are many other fashion designers with tens of men’s and women’s clothing in their collections for the fashion show. Which designer’s collections are the best is up for debate, it depends on what consumers want. Whose designs are good or bad? This is also up to consumers to decide. While designers may suggest to consumers what they think the fashion trend should be, it up to the consumers to decide if they want the trend on not. It is consumers that decide what kind of style appeals best to them. They decide what style and designs are appropriate for the events and occasions they normally attend. Consumers decide styles or designs that best reflect who they are and communicate appropriate message to people around them.. Everything a person wears speaks volumes about him/her. It is up to people to decide what they want others to hear by deciding whether to go with a particular fashion trend or not.

 

How to Stop Smoking Cannabis – Understand Your Addiction

Cannabis also known as marijuana, weed, pot or a thousand other names this drug seems to have can be highly addictive to some people who struggle to stop smoking cannabis. How to stop smoking cannabis in this situation relies on an understanding of marijuana and its effects on your mind and body. Only then will you be able to feel the benefits of quitting smoking cannabis and be able to stay off weed and not relapse into your addiction.

Firstly we must understand there are some misconceptions about cannabis addiction that lead to people trying to quite smoking pot in the wrong way and can also lead to pro-marijuana users ridiculing the idea of addiction which is unhelpful to everyone involved. cannabis nova scotia

Cannabis is not physically addictive
Many studies have shown that smoking marijuana is not like smoking cigarettes where the chemicals (nicotine) make you physically dependent on the drugs and when starved of it you suffer cravings that drive you to smoke again to be free of the effects. This does not mean stopping smoking cannabis does not come with its set of cravings but they are generally of a different kind.

Cannabis Withdrawals
Suffering from cannabis withdrawals is common when giving up smoking weed but any physical cravings are very mild but can include:

  • Vivid dreams – I am not sure what causes these but many people coming off cannabis usage often find their dreams very vivid and sometimes scary This may have something to do with the chemical THC that stays in your system for weeks after you stop smoking and how it interacts with your brain.
  • Anxiety – Feelings of paranoia and tension can be heightened while you are working the chemicals out of your system.
  • Insomnia – Some people have reported that it becomes difficult to sleep which again may be related to your body readjusting.

These symptoms pass in time and are usually nothing like the terrible effects of quitting cigarettes, the real cravings come from your psychological dependence on the drug which has to do with your wanting it not physically needing it!

Psychological Dependence
A psychological dependence is when you feel you need to smoke cannabis in the forms of joints, bongs or however you choose because you feel you need it. This gets confusing and sometimes you may not know why exactly you feel you must smoke but for most people it is because it has become a habit to smoke to escape something in your own life. From escaping abuse, poverty, mental illness, depression or just from being bored and unmotivated you can fall victim to smoking weed because you need an escape from your reality and the high you get is a short term relief that makes things bearable for a while. This is not a long term solution though and the continued smoking often makes this worse and solves nothing leading a spiraling pit of depression, anger and even more dependence on cannabis to get through it all.

How to stop smoking cannabis then? The first step is understanding what you have just read and locate WHY you choose to use marijuana. Only from there can you hope to take action to quit the drug and gain the benefits of clearer thinking, more time in your life to change things and more money to make it happen too!

 

Finding the Best External Hard Drive Storage

Apart from being one of the most essential parts of your computer, hard drive storage is constantly updating, in terms of both capacity of disk space and in physical size. When it comes time to upgrade your disk storage, there are a number of factors for you to take into account. Once you’ve made basic decisions about size, connectivity, speed and data transfer rate, and whether you want an internal drive or external, you can search through Myshopping.com.au to find the most suitable brand, and model, and compare the prices of different vendors. launchbox

How A Hard Drive Works

Your hard drive has a number of magnetized platters connected to a spindle. The spindle spins the platters at a very fast speed while a series of read/write heads scan over them both looking for and writing information. This information is transferred via a cable system, or through a wireless connection to a hard disk controller, which in most systems is built into the motherboard, or in some systems installed as an add-in card. The information that comes from your hard drive through its controller is then made available to the components of your computer. The effectiveness of your hard drive (its performance) depends on how much of its capacity remains unused, how well organised the data is (known as fragmentation) and its data transfer rate, which in turn is dependent on its connection type and the drive’s spin rate.

Internal Hard Drives

Most computers from, the most basic home models up to the most powerful servers, have an internally installed hard drive. Technology today ensures that they are all generally fast, reliable, and offer dependable storage ability. Most modern computers have installation slots and cabling to enable you to install additional hard drive. This allows you to increase your storage capacity without giving up your existing hard drive.

Internal Hard Drives

External Hard Drives

These drives are essentially the same drives as ones installed inside computers, but cased inside a protective, portable case. This is a good solution for people who work remotely and need to transport large amounts of data. If an external hard drive is your choice, make sure your computer is compatible with the interface that the hard drive uses. An add-in card, such as a FireWire card can help to increase your computer’s capabilities. You can compare different brands of external hard drives simply at Myshopping.com.au and search on the connection type, or other specifications.

External Hard drives

Laptop Hard Drives

There have been many advances in miniaturization of hardware components for laptop computing, and hard drive technology is not left out of this loop. Laptop hard drives function in exactly the same way as internal hard drives on other computers, only they are designed to provide maximum storage and efficiency in the smallest possible package. For added flexibility, some laptop computers come with removable hard drives that can be easily installed and removed. However, before you buy a hard drive for your portable computer, check that the hard drive’s specifications will meet the standards of your computer, as many laptop hard drives are proprietary, and are not compatible with other brands and models.

Laptop Hard Drives

Size

Your hard drive stores your operating system, its programs (games and applications), your working data, and your digital music and movies. Most new computer purchases have a minimum of 80 GB of hard disk space; many have considerably more. Hard drive space is one of those things, once you have it, you’ll find ways to fill it soon enough. There is no real rule of thumb, but consider the cost per gigabyte of storage as a way to guide your purchase. If you work with large files, such as music, video and graphics, it pays to have a big storage space for your work. It may pay you to have two hard drives, one that houses all your programs and applications, and another for storing your work and projects.

You may want to compare the price of say a 160GB drive against two separate 80 GB drives. If one drive fails all is not lost. Today’s hard drives however, are fairly robust pieces of equipment and providing they are not abuse, will serve you well for a long period of time.

Interface

One key distinguishing factor between hard drives is the way in which they connect to your computer. There are a number of basic types of connection schemes used with hard drives. Each connection type has a range of differences in performance.

IDE (INTEGRATED DRIVE ELECTRONICS)

This is by the most common connection methods. Because the hard drive controller is on the drive itself rather than on the motherboard, it helps to keep costs down. There different IDE standards available. Mostly, you will want to purchase the fastest possible standard that your computer can support. Most computers will support a standard that is faster than what the computer currently supports, so you can buy a faster drive, and update your computer at a later time. The different IDE standards, in order from most basic to fastest, are:

 

How to grow your cannabis business with dispensary pos

Enter any bar or public place and canvass opinions on cannabis and there will be a different opinion for each person canvassed. Some opinions will be well-informed from respectable sources while others will be just formed upon no basis at all. To be sure, research and conclusions based on the research is difficult given the long history of illegality. Nevertheless, there is a groundswell of opinion that cannabis is good and should be legalised. Many States in America and Australia have taken the path to legalise cannabis. Other countries are either following suit or considering options. So what is the position now? Is it good or not? https://blaze.me/blog/expand-your-business-with-dispensary-pos-software/

The National Academy of Sciences published a 487 page report this year (NAP Report) on the current state of evidence for the subject matter. Many government grants supported the work of the committee, an eminent collection of 16 professors. They were supported by 15 academic reviewers and some 700 relevant publications considered. Thus the report is seen as state of the art on medical as well as recreational use. This article draws heavily on this resource.

The term cannabis is used loosely here to represent cannabis and marijuana, the latter being sourced from a different part of the plant. More than 100 chemical compounds are found in cannabis, each potentially offering differing benefits or risk.

CLINICAL INDICATIONS

A person who is “stoned” on smoking cannabis might experience a euphoric state where time is irrelevant, music and colours take on a greater significance and the person might acquire the “nibblies”, wanting to eat sweet and fatty foods. This is often associated with impaired motor skills and perception. When high blood concentrations are achieved, paranoid thoughts, hallucinations and panic attacks may characterize his “trip”.

PURITY

In the vernacular, cannabis is often characterized as “good shit” and “bad shit”, alluding to widespread contamination practice. The contaminants may come from soil quality (eg pesticides & heavy metals) or added subsequently. Sometimes particles of lead or tiny beads of glass augment the weight sold.

THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS

A random selection of therapeutic effects appears here in context of their evidence status. Some of the effects will be shown as beneficial, while others carry risk. Some effects are barely distinguished from the placebos of the research.

  • Cannabis in the treatment of epilepsy is inconclusive on account of insufficient evidence.
  • Nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy can be ameliorated by oral cannabis.
  • A reduction in the severity of pain in patients with chronic pain is a likely outcome for the use of cannabis.
  • Spasticity in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients was reported as improvements in symptoms.
  • Increase in appetite and decrease in weight loss in HIV/ADS patients has been shown in limited evidence.
  • According to limited evidence cannabis is ineffective in the treatment of glaucoma.
  • On the basis of limited evidence, cannabis is effective in the treatment of Tourette syndrome.
  • Post-traumatic disorder has been helped by cannabis in a single reported trial.
  • Limited statistical evidence points to better outcomes for traumatic brain injury.
  • There is insufficient evidence to claim that cannabis can help Parkinson’s disease.
  • Limited evidence dashed hopes that cannabis could help improve the symptoms of dementia sufferers.
  • Limited statistical evidence can be found to support an association between smoking cannabis and heart attack.
  • On the basis of limited evidence cannabis is ineffective to treat depression
  • The evidence for reduced risk of metabolic issues (diabetes etc) is limited and statistical.
  • Social anxiety disorders can be helped by cannabis, although the evidence is limited. Asthma and cannabis use is not well supported by the evidence either for or against.
  • Post-traumatic disorder has been helped by cannabis in a single reported trial.
  • A conclusion that cannabis can help schizophrenia sufferers cannot be supported or refuted on the basis of the limited nature of the evidence.
  • There is moderate evidence that better short-term sleep outcomes for disturbed sleep individuals.
  • Pregnancy and smoking cannabis are correlated with reduced birth weight of the infant.
  • The evidence for stroke caused by cannabis use is limited and statistical.
  • Addiction to cannabis and gateway issues are complex, taking into account many variables that are beyond the scope of this article. These issues are fully discussed in the NAP report.

CANCER

The NAP report highlights the following findings on the issue of cancer:

  • The evidence suggests that smoking cannabis does not increase the risk for certain cancers (i.e., lung, head and neck) in adults.
  • There is modest evidence that cannabis use is associated with one subtype of testicular cancer.
  • There is minimal evidence that parental cannabis use during pregnancy is associated with greater cancer risk in offspring.

RESPIRATORY DISEASE

The NAP report highlights the following findings on the issue of respiratory diseases:

  • Smoking cannabis on a regular basis is associated with chronic cough and phlegm production.
  • Quitting cannabis smoking is likely to reduce chronic cough and phlegm production.
  • It is unclear whether cannabis use is associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, asthma, or worsened lung function.

IMMUNE SYSTEM

The NAP report highlights the following findings on the issue of the human immune system:

  • There exists a paucity of data on the effects of cannabis or cannabinoid-based therapeutics on the human immune system.
  • There is insufficient data to draw overarching conclusions concerning the effects of cannabis smoke or cannabinoids on immune competence.
  • There is limited evidence to suggest that regular exposure to cannabis smoke may have anti-inflammatory activity.
  • There is insufficient evidence to support or refute a statistical association between cannabis or cannabinoid use and adverse effects on immune status in individuals with HIV.

MORTALITY

The NAP report highlights the following findings on the issue of the increased risk of death or injury:

  • Cannabis use prior to driving increases the risk of being involved in a motor vehicle accident.
  • In states where cannabis use is legal, there is increased risk of unintentional cannabis overdose injuries among children.
  • It is unclear whether and how cannabis use is associated with all-cause mortality or with occupational injury.

BRAIN FUNCTION

The NAP report highlights the following findings on the issue of cognitive performance and mental health:

  • Recent cannabis use impairs the performance in cognitive domains of learning, memory, and attention. Recent use may be defined as cannabis use within 24 hours of evaluation.
  • A limited number of studies suggest that there are impairments in cognitive domains of learning, memory, and attention in individuals who have stopped smoking cannabis.
  • Cannabis use during adolescence is related to impairments in subsequent academic achievement and education, employment and income, and social relationships and social roles.
  • Cannabis use is likely to increase the risk of developing schizophrenia and other psychoses; the higher the use, the greater the risk.
  • In individuals with schizophrenia and other psychoses, a history of cannabis use may be linked to better performance on learning and memory tasks.
  • Cannabis use does not appear to increase the likelihood of developing depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder.
  • For individuals diagnosed with bipolar disorders, near daily cannabis use may be linked to greater symptoms of bipolar disorder than for nonusers.
  • Heavy cannabis users are more likely to report thoughts of suicide than are nonusers.
  • Regular cannabis use is likely to increase the risk for developing social anxiety disorder.

It must be reasonably clear from the foregoing that cannabis is not the magic bullet for all health issues that some good-intentioned but ill-advised advocates of cannabis would have us believe. Yet the product offers much hope. Solid research can help to clarify the issues. The NAP report is a solid step in the right direction. Unfortunately, there are still many barriers to researching this amazing drug. In time the benefits and risks will be more fully understood. Confidence in the product will increase and many of the barriers, social and academic, will fall by the wayside.

Home Improvement And Repair Projects Have Never Been More Popular And Easier To Accomplish

The popularity of HGTV (Home & Garden Television) has created a
thriving market in do-it-yourself home improvement and interior
decorating. All sectors of the home improvement industry have
benefited since HGTV started airing in 1975. https://toproofingcompanies.com/

The real estate boom was followed by a home improvement boom.
People would buy a old house and want to redecorate the house
from floor to ceiling. People who had lived in their houses for
a while wanted new kitchen cabinets. The home improvement shows
were an impetus for a massive movement by homeowners to start a
remodeling revolution

The home improvements that people take on include makeovers from
the attic to the basement. They perform functional repairs like
fixing a leaky roof, replacing windows, and adding more room to the
house. Then there are the projects that are just for the
beautification of the home like updating kitchen, remodeling a
master bedroom.

Some people use home improvement as a creative outlet. They paint
and redesign just for the satisfaction of improving their living
space. HGTV has been a large contributor to the home improvement
revival.

HGTV reaches 89 million households every week and over 800,000
nightly prime time viewers. The format of the show has been copied
several times and spin offs like Trading
Spaces, Extreme Makeovers. Viewers sit for hours watching
“Design on a Dime” “Devine Design”, “Landscapers Challenge”.
The home improvement shows just keep coming.

HGTV provides instructions for thousands of home improvement projects.
They provide video clips for everything from garden projects to
constructing a bed. HGTV is the one-stop resource for finding anything
you need for expert help with “doing it yourself” projects.

HGTV makes home improvement look easy and fun. HGTV gives viewers
new ideas and inspires the week end warrior to do some type of home
improvement project. HGTV mission is “to provide ideas, information,
and inspiration for decorating and home improvement”.

The impact that HGTV has on home improvement can be measured in these
statistics.

 

  • Furniture sales grew by 75%, between Between 1995-2005

 

  • Sales of home furnishings increased 97% in this same period.

 

These items included soft goods as well, carpets, lamps, area rugs,
linens, glassware

People all over the country are decorating their homes to look like
these superbly beautiful fantasy creations that they view on HGTV.
If you are not a “do it yourselfer” you can just imagine the way your

home might look when you go on tours of million dollar home all
across the country. You see people who look like you making grand
improvements to shacks that end up looking like your dream home.

HGTV has had a dramatic impact on the home improvement industry
because HGTV appeals to the age group of people who have the money
to pay for major home improvement projects. The demographics of the
typical HGTV is a female age 35-64 years old. Over 70% of HGTV
viewers are females.
That means that the female viewers are encouraging husband, fathers,
brother to do the work so they can enjoy the benefits.
The additional general consumer demographics for home improvement by
female indicate:

 

  • They shop more often

 

 

Why Do We Need a Sprinkler Repair Service?

A great lawn needs quality sprinkler and irrigation systems in order to remain beautiful every day. Without the proper system you will just waste a lot of time trying to make the hose cover the entire lawn. A broken sprinkler system that is quite old and requires repairs or improvements is not a good choice either. This will only make you waste your money and a lot of water because you yard will still look dry and untidy. So the key to having a green lawn is to purchase a professional sprinkler system and to have a good repair company to call when in need. https://topsintexas.com/

Despite what you might think, the irrigation systems are not very easy to manage. And everyone from homeowners to big commercial businesses that handle this issue might discover that they have important problems.

Possible Problems

1. The filter screens get clogged
2. The valves and the spray heads spring begin to leak and the tubing gets kinked
3. The contractor cuts through the pipe or an electric failure resets the system in a wrong manner.
4. The popup and the rotary spray heads stop from functioning
5. The nozzles or the small tubing are stuffed with dirt
6. The spray heads are damaged due to accidents

The importance of sprinkler repair service

Few of these issues are not terrible emergencies that cannot be resolved in any circumstance. For instance, let’s assume that the contractor you hired to do some work in your yard (install a cable line) cuts through an important pipeline. In order to avoid feeling like Noah on the Ark, you need to turn off the main water source and call someone who knows what he is doing. Problems can appear if you have a clogged filter that is stressed by the water pressure. In this case a simple pipe can burst and you might not notice that until you see a big puddle in your yard and the water bill has become enormous just like that.

In addition to this, other issues that do not require an emergency regime are kinks in pipes, some leaky valves and problems with the spray heads. These will cost you quite a few buck so be prepared just in case.

Serious issues

Somewhere between the degree of emergency and not so much emergency can be a power outage or a system reset done wrong. Especially if you are taking a longer trip somewhere far. In this case, you have two possibilities: the lawn will take in too much water and develop all sorts of fungal issues or it will not receive water at all and you will have to replace everything.
