The Long awaited Netflix series Marvel’s The Defenders has finally launched. Let the binge watching commence!
Let me Preface this with I love to see the villains that Marvel introduces when adapting characters for screen. We have our main stay villains who are the ones we know and then there are villains that we don’t know as well. Sometimes these characters are created in the process of retelling of a story. And sometimes they are existing gems re-polished into dynamic characters.
Sigourney Weaver is definitely one of those villains I love. She plays Alexandra Reid. And then we also have Electra who is not necessarily a villain but more of a villain’s pawn (at first), The hand of course and some others sprinkled in there Alexandra is seeking the ability to get back to K’un L’un with her counterparts. In doing that she has to use ‘The Black Sky’ aka Electra.
Converging on New York to stop an impending doom are 4 super heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, The Immortal Iron Fist and our resident Bulletproof hero Luke Cage. They are all connected to each other through this impending doom. Each hero brings their own strengths and weaknesses to the fight. My only issue with the show is not so much the premise but specifically with Danny Rand’s character. He is very whiny. He is basically hellbent on revenge for his parents while spouting he is the immortal iron fist and seeking justice. Which I don’t believe he is aware that he is like this. Don’t get me wrong, I think the writers did this on purpose to make a point to give him some growth points and that is fine and all but he gets very old very quickly. Plus everything is all his fault.
Everyone else fits their roles in the group as they should. Luke Cage is fresh out of prison, Jessica Jones is back on the case and DareDevil is on Jessica’s case. There is plenty of mishaps and misunderstandings to go around. The fight scenes were ok. The transition and progression of the story was a bit slow moving and somewhat predictable in some places. The next season hopefully will be much better and a little less predictable.

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

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 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.

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
- 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.
