For the traffic mess some people are going to experience when the Viaduct shuts down, it might be a chance to take public transportation. I recommend it. But! You should probably know what the hell you are doing. So here are some tips to make sure that you don’t mess with other people’s commute.
Load your Orca Card now. Or if you don’t have one, know how much your trip will cost and have it ready before you fumble around at the bus door, or wherever you pay.
Figure out your route ahead of time. The driver (ar least Metro) will help you out, but if it’s super crowded, there might be a lot. They will talk to you at the door, but if you cause them to stay at the stop through a light, everyone on the bus will hate you. One Bus Away is great, and all the transit agency websites have tools to help you out.
Standing in front of open seats doesn’t help anyone. Jesus, man. Just have a seat. Or if you’re worried about getting off soon, move away from it so someone else can sit down.
If it’s crowded, move toward the back, and away from doors. Exit from the rear doors of buses. Don’t crowd the platform on the train.

Robert Peters was appointed by the Democrats to finish the term of Attorney General-elect Kwame Raoul in the Illinois Senate. Peters was born deaf, but said that thanks to an operation at age of 8 he is no longer deaf. The story did not elaborate any further. If it was a CI, then he is still deaf when taking off the CI. Or was it a non-CI operation that completely restored his hearing?

If you are a smartphone user, there’s a good chance you have a Samsung device. However, most users can’t wrap their head around the concept of a Samsung VPN. In these turbulent times of excessive government surveillance and lack of privacy, most Samsung users are concerned with the same question:
What is a VPN?
First off, a VPN is a service that provides you with an IP address of your own, while masking your originally IP address so that you can safely browse on the internet, without worrying about safety and security online.
Why Do I need a VPN for Samsung?
When you connect to a public WI-Fi network, you are vulnerable to hacking and spying. This also increases the chances for identity theft, which can land you in some serious trouble. Unfortunately, none of the Samsung devices be it, Smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy S7 (which is particularly vulnerable to hacking) or Smart TV, come with anti-hacking measures.
Only a VPN can secure your private data and protect you from hacking by providing you a secure tunnel with which you can send and receive information even if you happen to be connected through a public network.

This is easily one of the most commendable qualities of a great VPN!
Do I need a Password for Samsung VPN?
Of course, any VPN that works on any of the Samsung VPN client’s including VPN for Samsung smartphones, TV and tablets, requires a login ID and password which is set up only once you have signed up for the VPNs service by either:
Subscribing to the 7- day/30- day trial periods offered by the service.
Purchasing the premium subscription for the package you have chosen.
Another common query in the online community is:

On December 6th of 2018, the Australian government raised eyebrows by rushing to pass a controversial anti-encryption bill that could negatively impact tech companies and their users around the globe. The ominous legislation, dubbed as the “Assistance and Access Act“, will mandate that any company or organization with website data being hosted on Australian soil must give authorities access to their information systems upon request.
Simply put, that means providing a backdoor to encryption in Australia that’s supposed to help law enforcement spy on suspects. In true Big Brother fashion, the Australian Government has decided that it hates being locked out of anything that’s been securely encrypted and is now forcing companies to help them hack their way into private accounts or even to implant malware. Stiff penalties and fines await any company that isn’t willing to cooperate.
The advent of end-to-end encryption has given people around the world both security and privacy when it comes to personal information and communication. Modern life is tethered to the internet, and we fear the good intentions of aiding law enforcement to access encrypted materials may inadvertently undermine online security and privacy with hacker-friendly loopholes that set a dangerous precedent in our digitally connected and increasingly global online community.
In a post 9/11 world, government agencies and law enforcement have complained that encryption prevents them from properly investigating or monitoring dangerous suspects or even preempting crime and terrorism. But Australia’s concessions against personal security in the name of spying on suspects all feels a little Orwellian in our view, and the invasion of personal privacy by any government is deeply troubling to us. Anyone paying attention to the nature of the latest Australian law can already tell it may be a slippery slope that allows the government to investigate private citizens with little accountability and for the pettiest of allegations. Golden Frog was born to fight questionable access to user data, and we take great exception to the idea that people’s personal information should be subject to monitoring by unmoderated arms of any government.
All of this begs the question: will giant multinational tech giants continue to host any data under Australian jurisdiction? What impact could that have on the Australian consumer and economy as a whole? Many tech companies have publicly signaled their displeasure with the legislation and may take the action of pulling up their stakes and relocating assets abroad to protect customer data from being compromised.
And because of the sheer global scale of most tech companies, ordering backdoors built into encryption in Australia could open a proverbial Pandora’s Box when it comes to the future of online privacy, as this is not a law with consequences that stop beyond Australia’s shores. Critics argue that there is simply no way to create tools to undermine encryption without jeopardizing digital security. There is no safeguard against potential hackers, who will be gifted hacking tools on a silver platter if companies are forced to provide back channels for the Australian government, and it may be enough to compromise networks around the world.
Additionally, any service, app or company found to be non-compliant with the new legislation could risk being blocked or heavily censored from use in the land Down Under (if they even want to continue doing business in Australia at all). Inevitably, when it comes to bypassing censorship, VPNs are usually called upon to access content that’s being firewalled off from the public by routing around any restrictions in place. And that’s a role we proudly play in the name of internet freedom.
The latest legislation in Australia also confirms the wisdom in why Golden Frog’s own VyprVPN maintains a No Log policy, meaning we do not record or retain any data when you use the VyprVPN Service. The less data we have then the less data can ever be at risk of falling into the hands of unwelcome third parties…which is the whole point of encryption in the first place.
Through it all Golden Frog has been an outspoken advocate for worldwide internet freedom, and we were originally founded in opposition to government surveillance. For this reason, we strongly urge all Australians to have their voice heard by their own country’s parliament, and to reach out to their representatives to let them know you stand in absolute opposition to the Assistance and Access Bill.
The future of internet privacy may depend upon the stand Australians take to protect themselves as their country now represents the frontlines of this global battle.
Hyundai is coming up with “Silent Taxi” which is supposed to help the deaf drivers know what sounds are out there – police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances. Would it help the deaf driver if there is a sound inside the car, such as a crying baby or a crying dog?
— QR Reader app used in a gym
QR Reader is an app that is supposed to help the deaf know where they stand with their goals while going through fitness drills in a gym. A gym owner in Little Rock, Arkansas is using QR Reader as an easier way to communicate with the deaf with their fitness goals.
— difference between Amazon USA and Amazon UK
“Bad Reputation” was a popular rock music shown in USA (and in Great Britain) during the early eighties. Joan Jett, not deaf, is an American who spent her best musical years in Great Britain, and she was a big part of Bad Reputation. There are many deaf people that follow music. What about captioned or subtitled music. The review said:
Unfortunately there are no subtitles available
That DVD is being marketed by Amazon UK. Is it saying that Amazon UK does not have to caption but Amazon USA must caption?
So, it’s probably too early, but 2020 primary elections for President and possibly governor are sooner than we might want. I am going to try to stay neutral. There are people I like more than others, but there’s no need to pick at this point. Hopefully we can get to issues at some point.
