Women in tech

Sometimes people who use pseudoscience to confirm what they think is actual fact. I was listening to a radio show today and they were discussing the whole Google incident. And one of their guess who who was the male informed that they have done studies macro studies metadata studies that determined that women cognitively are no different than men when it comes to logic and thinking. So for any man who was stating that this is the only reason why women should not be allowed in the technology field was complete bunk. Now I say all of this to say when I was in high school which I went to Western I had of computer science teacher who was a female I can’t remember her name maybe one of my Western Dive know who she is. Who literally encouraged me to go into the technology failed because she said I had the mind for it. I appreciate the fact that that woman gave me that type of encouragement when nobody else thought I should have went into the Technology field for that she was the only person that I had even the counselors were skeptical of me going into technology because of how the field was stacked back then. Even till today it’s the same thing. Women have an uphill battle. So I feel as though that being a woman in technology is a great thing I would encourage any other woman or female to do so. Our minds are not limited. I would love to see in the future even now of more women in technology and science in general and for the most part I think going forward that will be what will decrease the pay Gap, increase the number of minorities as well as women in that field itself. #techmesomething

Too Social

Facebook is now up to 2 billion users. This is the largest and most used social media app reported by Tech Crunch yesterday. Nothing seems to be stopping this giant platform from succeeding in their new mission of positivity. In fact one could say it is actually doing rather well.


So where does that leave all the other social media networks? Well, they are simply not as popular as the trends make them out to be at this time. Are we simply over connected at this point? Perhaps. 
Facebook has been dominating the social network seen for quite some time. There doesn’t seem to be any slowing down at this point.

Awesome Con 2017

Awesome Con 2017 has come and went. 


Awesome Con was hosted in Washington D. C. with quite a few persons of interest on the guest list and nothing short of amazing costumes. 


Many of the panels were full of information on various topics of interest. 


Not to mention, the one and only Stan Lee himself was in attendance. 

There were some brilliant cos-players. 

I won’t bore you with all the unnecessary details of the con in itself as you just have to be there to experience the fun. If you haven’t yet been to this particular Convention I would definitely Recommend 2018. As Awesome Con grows, the guest list gets better and better.

Stolen Console

Sometimes the most horrendous things happen such as home Bulgaries. We tend to think it won’t happen to us but alas it happens. If you have found yourself in this situation there are a couple of things you can do:

At the time of purchase or any time while you have the console:

  • Take pictures of and copy your purchase receipt, the console packaging, and the console itself 
  • Store in a safe place (i.e. Google Drive, Onedrive, Dropbox, send to an email) 
  • Update your home or apartment insurance company with photos 
    • Some insurance requires you to do this at the time of theft. 
    • Some require it before 

After a theft :

  • Make a police report 
    • Do this immediately 
  • They may be able to locate the device if it is online. 
  • Contact your insurance company right away 
    • You may need to supply a police report 
    • If covered it will be easier to replace. 

Although most of the steps If not all should be done immediately this could save you some time and money in the long run. Consoles are cheap but not free, so keep track of that important information.
