Shailene Woodley's Breasts (nwsf)

I take no responsibility if you are a minor and you click on the link or if you are at work and click. By clicking on the video link below, you verify that you are over 18 and of a mature nature, but not adverse to female nudity. If you do not understand this disclaimer, then let your parents decide ASAP. As for you there in your office cubicle: stop wasting company bandwidth. Your company's IT department knows where you've been.

It's nothing to get excited over since she does not have Irish genes, Italian genes or even Provencal/Catalonian/Berber genes. That might change if she decides to take the plastic surgery route, depending on how narcissistic she is.

Overall, these are young adult female breasts, shrunk by dieting, and only when she hits thirty will she develop a more appealing torso, except if she keeps dieting.

Good luck if you think these breasts are sexually attractive since she is barely out of her teens as it is.

Fixing Bluetooth and Wireless (WiFi) Issues

Disclaimer: This blog article is for experienced Linux users who installed Fedora XFCE - my recommendation is to add the Cinnamon desktop package and Gnome or better yet, install Fedora Gnome.

***UPDATE: I have resisted as far as I could, but now am running Chrome browser, but it still isn't fast as the Firefox. In a new post on my blog, I will tell you how much fun it is to work with Fedora!!

XFCE4 is light, so light that they decided to program Fedora to turn off Bluetooth and eventually the WiFi network via rfkill.

According to the developer of Cinnamon, the workaround is to install these bluedevil packages:

bluedevil.i686
bluedevil-autostart.i686
libbluedevil.i686

For details, see: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1685034&postcount=4
Thank you, leigh123linux, for the suggestion of using bluedevil.
Note: Blueooth does not work with XFCE4, LXDE, LxQT, and Cinnamon.

It only works with Gnome.

So upgrade to Gnome.

After installing Fedora 21 on my EeePC 1000HE last Tuesday (May 5), I could not get Bluetooth to work. By Wednesday, I had lost wireless and only had a LAN connection.

On Sunday (yesterday), I decided to tackle the problem since the only time Fedora would detect WiFi was by plugging in a WiFi USB adapter.

After checking /var/log/messages and /var/log/messages-20150510, I discovered that only the ethernet network adapter worked:

lshw is run showing the Class "network" entry for the Ethernet interface. Even though the Atheros is a Gigabit or Fast Ethernet, my LAN cable is CAT.5E, and thus limits the speed to 100 Mbit/s.

I also discovered that the netbook's WiFi adapter uses the ath9k module for the Qualcomm Atheros AR9280 WiFi chipset:


So I found the solution here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1729572&postcount=5

> I installed rfkill and lshw
...
> prompted rfkill list = Soft blocked = no and Hard blocked = no

In my case I got the following:

$ rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
1: asus-wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
2: asus-bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
3: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no


and here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1489711&postcount=2

> rfkill unblock all

Similarly, I unblocked all the soft blocked interfaces (bluetooth and wireless):
$ rfkill unblock all && rfkill list

$ rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: asus-wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
2: asus-bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
3: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

After unblocking the netbook's wireless and Bluetooth interfaces, I then used modprobe to install the ath9k module:

$ sudo modprobe ath9k

This loads all the ath9k-related modules - ath, ath9k, ath9k_common and ath9k_hw with the associated 802.11-related modules, cfg80211 and mac80211:

$ lsmod|grep ath
ath9k 112655 0
ath9k_common 29490 1 ath9k
ath9k_hw 433891 2 ath9k_common,ath9k
ath 23507 3 ath9k_common,ath9k,ath9k_hw
mac80211 597573 1 ath9k
cfg80211 461788 4 ath,ath9k_common,ath9k,mac80211


Once the Atheros modules are installed, it is trivial to set up the WiFi network using the NetworkManager-applet.

After bluetooth is unblocked and enabled, the solution to enable bluetooth for the plain vanilla Fedora 21 XFCE is to install Cinnamon and its related packages:

cinnamon.i686
cinnamon-control-center.i686
cinnamon-screensaver.i686
cinnamon-session.i686
cinnamon-desktop.i686
cinnamon-menus.i686

Here's a screenshot from my netbook showing the configuration menu in Cinnamon:


By clicking on the Bluetooth and/or Networking icons, the configuration menu may be viewed and can be edited.

Specifically the networking area consists of Wired (LAN), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The Nexus 4 entry refers to my smartphone which is a paired device which can be used to provide internet via the phone's data service. The Bluetooth entry shows a connected device (the smartphone) which uses the netbook as an audio device.

After reflection on my original Bluetooth issue with the XFCE version of Fedora 21, I could have saved myself the hassle of this issue by installing Fedora 21 Gnome.

This article would not have happened without the help of Google Search - "Google is your friend!"

Kudos to two members of Fedora Forums:
  1. feihuhotain for providing the tip for installing lshw and rfkill, and using rfkill to list the wireless interface (Bluetooth and WiFi), and
  2. aks for providing the tip for using rfkill to unblock all the software blocks of wireless interfaces.

Preparing Nexus 4 for Android 5.10 Upgrade



Synopsis: to prepare your Nexus 4, first wipe cache partition and then upgrade to Android 5.10.

  • Wiping Cache Partition
    1. If your phone is on, hold the Power button to restart it.
    2. Hold the appropriate device-specific buttons until you see the word "Start" in green and a large Android robot on its back.
      On the Nexus⁴: Press and hold the Volume Down, Volume Up, and Power buttons at the same time for several seconds.
    3. Press the Volume Down button twice to highlight "Recovery mode," then press Power button. The words "Google" will show on the screen followed by an image of a small Android robot on its back with a red exclamation mark and the words "No command."
    4. While holding down the Power button, press the Volume Up button. Some menu options will appear.
    5. Use the volume buttons to scroll to "wipe cache partition" and press the Power button to select it. It takes up to 10 minutes to complete the process. Problems can occur if one is impatient and attempts to reboot during this process, so it's best to just let it complete.
    6. After the cache is wiped, scroll to "reboot system now" and press the Power button again to restart the device.
  • Note: If your phone becomes unresponsive at any point during these steps, you can restart it by holding down the Power button for several seconds.

To make the above instructions more meaningful, on Youtube is this video on how to wipe the cache partition on the Google Nexus 4.




After clearing the cache, download and install the Android 5.10 OTA update.


Commentary: after wiping the cache partition, I upgraded my Nexus 4 to Android 5.1 without any issue.

Satan as Superstition (satire)

Contrary to a few of Christendom's arrogant posture that their faith is based on a new offshoot of Judaism lacking true syncretism, the assimilation of local traditions into Catholicism is nothing more than syncretism in which the early Church absorbed pagan traditions and remade the gods in God's image as angels, demons and Satan.

However, Satan is a tempter who has no real power, except through people aligned with the dark side of human nature.

Ergo, absolute evil and absolute good never existed before mankind thought them up, given that, according to the Bible, God is the sole author of good-and-evil.

Satan is not real. Rather, superstitious fear of the devil is the most diabolical of what man has wrought on innocents.

It has led to witch hunts from the 15th Century up until the 19th Century, and sometimes occurs in the Old World.

In the name of religion, socio-political turmoil, Catholic versus Protestant conflict, functional explanations, class conflict and gender conflict better explain what really happened in those times. Men relied on their prejudices and fears stoked by religious excess to oppress other men, women and children.

Today, few people believe Satan is real, and most of us know he is not a real being. Indeed, he has no physical power in the material realm at all, being merely a metaphor for the potential of great evil, just as God is the metaphor for the potential of great good in us all.

Debt Collectors Charge Interest (satire)

Recently I talked with my new debt collection agent "Greg", and discovered the following:

He alleges that Rogers Mobility, is charging a daily interest that works out to 25% per year, thanks to compound interest. Actually, the collection agent that Rogers has retained charges interest. To avoid conflict with the debtor, a debt collection agent will remind him that the company he owes money to is charging that interest.

Indeed, the collections agent is besmirching the reputation of Rogers Mobility. Though it is doubtful that what the debt collector says to me in confidence will actually harm the reputation of Rogers Mobility, given the satirical nature of this blog entry.

Rather than be confrontational, I have decided to play along with Greg since the aim of debt repayment is to continue paying the debt off at the rate which the debt collector and I agreed upon (originally $100 biweekly - every two weeks).

So, I see no harm in letting Greg tell me a fib. He is only concerned getting me ot pay off the debt, not cause me to feel enmity towards the corporation that he represents.

According to Greg, the remaining debt balance I had calculated is $650 is incorrect. Due to compound interest, it is actually $900. That works out to a difference of $250 - which accumulated from November 14 to April 16 (130 days).

That works out to almost $2 a day of interest which gets incrementally smaller every day due to my bi-weekly payments of $100.

So I calculated how long before I am debt-free. it works out to almost 5 months. Once I make my ninth payment circa August 14, I just have to pay off less than $50 and the account will be closed.

My decision then is to increase my bi-weekly payments to $150, which will reduce the debt faster. Rather than waiting up to 5 months, I would be debt free in 14 weeks (3.5 months), with less than $50 to pay on the 14th week.

Rather than give a lesson on the math used to calculate debt, I turned to the solution of an online debt calculator.

https://creditcanada.com/node/30/done?sid=45622&token=6d95d4a74e3445fff9647a1816b32635


No, I didn't go to Credit Canada for help, nor is this a product endorsement of a company that negotiates an interest free debt management plan.

Here's the calculator itself: https://creditcanada.com/debt-calculator

After July of this year, I will have paid my debt to Rogers Mobility. It will another six years before my credit rating improves.

Note: all dollar amounts mentioned in this blog entry are rounded up from the actual amount of debt owed. To meet my debts, I have doubled my work hours and even taken extra work with my employer.

The Etymology of the Christ (self study)

This blog entry is limited to my understanding of the etymology of the term "Christ". I only take responsibility for that understanding.

In the Christian sects, "Jesus Christ" predominates as his Latin name. More correctly, Jesus is the Greek version of the Hebrew name, Yeshua. Thus, his first name could also be read as Joshua.

Christ means "the anointed one". The term "Christ" means "Messiah" and can be used interchangeably with respect to Revelation.

Returning to the name of the Lord, "Jesus Christ" is an abbreviation for "Jesus the Messiah." Another acceptable term for Jesus the Messiah is "the Christ Jesus."

To ensure that each Christian sect know that we all are talking about the same Jesus, he is called Jesus Christ.

Obama's Confession (satire)

Hi everyone. My name used to be Barry Soetoro. I changed my name to Barack Obama when I studied with Henry Kissinger and Zbignew Brezinski to learn how to be a puppet for big corporations and the ruling elite class that owns me which is controlled by the CIA.

Be sure to not look into my policies or you'll hate me. Cult of personality by living colour is my theme song.

I enjoy pushing for global depopulation through soft-kill weapons like vaccinations and GMO foods. When I'm not acting as a puppet for a nefarious and ruthless elite, I enjoy spinning the truth in public announcements and pretending to be a MLK cultist.

My plans for the future is to destabilize the Middle East by buying off al Qaeda via Kuwait and Saudi Arabia in Syria after facilitating the murder of Gaddafi and quietly bribing the Muslim Brotherhood after both the Libyan and Egyptian government fell during the Arab Spring.

Through our experience in both countries, we managed to depose Morsi in Egypt by not letting its military vette America's bribes given to the Egyptian MB, thanks to the satirical spin of an Egyptian comic who used to be a doctor.

We plan to keep Libya destabilized by bribing MB members of the new government and by ensuring extremists have free reign there to fill the power vacuum left by Gaddafi.

My future hope is to depose Assad in Syria and later punish Iran for thinking it has the right to be a nuclear power by negotiating a complex nuclear deal with the aid of Russia in exchange for lifting of sanctions.

My main job is advise the Middle Eastern nations on making strategic strikes against the Islamic State while it maintains its hold over northern Iraq and eastern Syria.

In the future I plan to pass the torch onto a worthy successor to the Democrat mantle who shall support the West's need for oil by putting the pressure on nations that won't share it with America.

For America is great, one nation under BigOil.

When Good Men Failed To Act (satire)

IMO 911 happened is because nobody from the CIA to the FBI to the POTUS acted on information to stop it from happening.

Instead they let it happen, so that they could invade Afghanistan and Iraq, illegally detain terrorists at Gitmo and other highly questionable acts, all in the name of fighting terrorism.

Yet there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Thank you very much for the smoke and mirrors, Bush and Cheney.

Now, Obama is using drones to kill terrorists in Pakistan and Yemen, including US citizens because that is cheaper than capturing them and subjecting them to a trial.

Soon the world would become a sousveillance world where those in power will control who can use cameras and when they can be used.

As well, children are being surreptitiously "trained" to act before a camera on Younow so that they will either parlay it into a broadcasting career or failing that, a webcam career.

Our privacy rights are constantly threatened, and yet everyone who catches the bug wants to broadcast, giving up their right to privacy for fame and to make a quick buck.

All because good men in high place fail to act!

Now they plan to make up for it in Canada by proposing a law that has the potential to create a massive surveillance network in Canada.

Monsanto Shall Be Blamed for Global Famine (satire)

In this article, I will write a future scenario which might come true as long as GMO corporations like Monsanto forces the world to use their Roundup-ready GMO seeds instead of the real stuff.

Such GMO seeds are known to cause allergies in humans which lead to obesity and other autoimmune diseases. However, if a person were allergic to GMO corn, wheat and soy, they could even die.

Let's just imagine how that would play out in the future...

By 2110 the world population are dying off due to severe allergic reaction caused by GMO plant and animal food in the global food supply. Only 20 years earlier the world's population had peaked at 10 billion people, due to the result of non-GMO food flooding the market from American warehouses where the elite had stored the food solely for their use. That happened after the anniversary of the 2011 Occupy Wall Street protests which had sprung similar movements around the world.

It turned out that Occupy Movement militants had raided the warehouse and handed out the food to starving homeless people, which by 2090 CE constitute over 25 percent of Americans. Such militants declare themselves to be the only voice of the People and by 2050 had radicalized into roving gangs of militants who would free the food for the starving homeless while chanting "Food not bombs!"

Said an unidentified Tea Party militant, "Since martial law was declared earlier this year, the USgov has protected these terrorists. Forget Obama. She can rot in hell!" President Obama is the daughter of former President Barack Obama and First Michelle Obama, who were killed along with Joe Biden and his wife by a North Korean drone attack in Tokyo in January 16, 2015, and in DC a day later, respectively.

It is said that the drone that killed Biden also killed everyone caught in the blast that destroyed the White House, except for Obama's two daughters, Malia Ann and Sasha Obama. This made them in line for succession, since all of the Presidential candidates were targeted by Iranian militants as well. Since Milia Ann is the eldest, on January 2, 2016 she was inaugurated as Acting President Obama, making her the youngest leader of any country in the world at age 17. On July 4, she turns 18. To help her with the role is an unknown Secret Service agent and other CIA personnel who, surprisingly, were not targeted.

According to Russian reports, Iran, China and the Gulf States had co-opted much of the CIA staff through brainwashing of a CIA black-ops group code-named The Beast who then became sleeper agents until a year before the assassination.

Once this became world news, American mainstream media was taken over the CIA, and the NSA completed its plans to turn the US into a police state. However, given the co-opting of the CIA by Iran, China and the Gulf States, that meant that Milia was a pawn of Iran, China and the Gulf States. So the people of America rose up, and President Obama became a President in Exile in Bahrain.

Left without a President, even though a child, the Americans fell into factions: Cascadia in the Pacific Northwest, California Republic, Texas Republic, Confederation of Southern US, and certain states just carried on business as usual. For the enemy had also blown up Congress with only a handful of Democrats surviving because they were holidaying in Hawaii.

Most of the Eastern Seaboard however formed the United States with the libertarian capitol in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a Democrat capitol in Washington, DC.

As well, all US vacationers became refugees in Thailand, Burma and India while in China, they were executed as an example to USgov defaulting on their loan.

Meanwhile, freed of DC-based strings, Stephen Harper resigned as PM and the Reform portion of the Conservatives went to church to confess their sins. Occupy Canada militants killed them all accidentally by bulldozing the churches to protest Christian hypocrisy. Eager to fill in the gap, the NDP and Liberal fought with each other tooth and nail.

In the end, Elizabeth May became PM and legalized marijuana and prostitution. When the price of an ounce of pot plummeted, the Canadian gangs decided to become legitimate businessmen due to no money to be made selling drugs and hookers legally. That way they retained a business subsidy to sell medical marijuana and prostitutes.

Yet utopia did not arise in the world. Circa 2056 CE, a mysterious die off of people occurred. A teenaged scientist in Vancouver discovered that it was due to a strong allergic reaction to incrased subsistance on GMO foods. About this time, the BC elites were storing non-GMO food in warehouses.

After the raid of food warehouses in 2061, people thrived. Population boomed until 2108.

By 2108, as more people began to die from GMO food allergies, the population peak of 2091 had subsided. By 2110, GMO food allergies became one of the leading cause of death, beating cancer and syphilis. It took 70 years for the current population to rise to 1 billion people. If there was a Center of Disease Control, they would have called it the GMO food allergy epidemic.

After 2164, the UN decided to banish war by humans. All new wars would be fought by AI drones and T-99, T-1000 and T-3000 robots under control of the telecommunications giant Skynet which had diversified into AI and robotics. It is said that an Occupy militant named John Connor dedicate himself and his mother to fighting Skynet's use of police robots who all wear the face of former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger after Skynet licensed the former actor's likeness.

A hundred years later, the T models were replace with Cylons (CYbernetic Living automatON) after an AI avatar was transferred into the protocol circa 2204 by Peter Gray using his son Zachary's AI avatar downloaded from a cyberspace game called Fresh Bereta Town. However the product name was licensed from Comcast.

Today, when wars are fought, we use Cylons. All citizens are to report to bunkers during the fighting, to avoid casualties. After a war, the handful of leaders of the world merely accept the change of national boundaries as a given since Cylons now control their lives.

Recently in March of 2310 it has been rumored that a bunch of Cylons of the android type developed a religion and left with a squadron of elite Cylon robots to find God.

Recently, some unknown invader blew up the Mars colony.

Back in 2200 CE, Mars Colony had declared total independence and were ready to send their sleeper ship Babylon One toward the known location of a possibly habitable planet 10 light years away. Cylons would maintain the safety of all humans on board.

It's anyone's guess who attacked Mars. Some people claim the Six that left found God and returned to mete out Armageddon on Mars and Earth.

Today in 2310, the Earth has grown to 2.5 billion due to a one-child policy. However, a certain "Ender" Wiggins had beat the odds to become our best chance against what turned out to be Cylon androids remotely controlled by insectoids on that habitable planet that the sleeper ship Babylon One found.

Unfortunately, the insect queen was looking for a way to save her species, not kill us off.

But what do we do? We call Ender a genocidal maniac and he buggers off on a ship with an AI girlfriend and a couple Cylons with the egg of that insectoid queen.

So when Monsanto said that Roundup would work on the insectoids, it was fitting for Monsanto HQ to be wiped out by the insectoids.

Today is a new day, and I am signing off.

Perhaps Monsanto might cause global famine due to farmers being in jail when they should be harvesting their GMO product.

I take no credit for any of the respective science fiction shows such as Battlestar Galactica, Enderverse and Babylon 5. Even Monsanto.

My point in mentioning them is that the fascist manner used by Monsanto to protect its GMO seeds is almost like science fiction with farmers being sued by the GMO corporate monolith because the farmers couldn't prevent pollen from crops using Monsanto's GMO seeds from contaminating their crops.

That scenario sounds like a really bad science fiction movie plot. A corporate giant would oppress the people because of something they cannot control: GMO pollen contaminating non-GMO crops.
