Coolest Tech

 
I was looking around the internet, and came across this amazing little piece of tech. It’s an earpiece, that connects to your phone with Bluetooth, and can translate speech in real time. The earpiece hears the speech, send it to your phone, translates it, sends it back to your earpiece, then speaks it into your ear.
With this tech, you can have almost real time speech translation. Currently there is a gap of a couple seconds, but the company that creates it is currently trying to get the gap down to zero.
When you buy it, you get 5 languages for free: French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and English. Pretty much every other popular language is available to buy.
This basically hacks the language barrier to pieces. And the best part about the entire thing, is that it costs $250.
Anyone with a smart phone and $250 can have a conversation with basically anyone on earth.
Pretty amazing.

Florida High School Shooting Survivors Announce a March on Washington

 

 
 
Following the horrific shooting that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last week, the student survivors are calling for a march on Washington to demand immediate action on gun control reform.
Calling it "The March for Our Lives," the teenagers organizing the protest said on Sunday that the protest is scheduled to take place on March 24. The plans are to include students “in every single major city” in hopes of sending a message to the White House about how the substantive improvement of preexisting gun control laws could, quite literally, save lives.
“We are losing our lives while the adults are playing around," junior Cameron Kasky told Raddatz. “This isn’t about the GOP; this isn’t about the Democrats. This is about us creating a badge of shame for any politicians who are accepting money from the NRA and using us as collateral."
David Hogg, another survivor, agreed, adding: "It’s time for us to stand up and take action and hold our elected officials responsible."
On Saturday, Marjory Stoneman Douglas senior Emma Gonzalez made an impassioned cry for legislative reform at a gun control rally in Fort Lauderdale, "calling BS" on Trump, lawmakers, and the NRA for their inaction and citing the necessity for immediate legislative reform. She joined Kasky, Hogg, and two other classmates in this call to action, saying: "We are going to be the difference."
In addition to the march, momentum is also building for an official school walkout on March 14. Planned in part by the Women's March organizers, the act of protest would mark the one-month anniversary of the South Florida shooting.
Together, the young survivors of last week's shooting are determined to harness these upcoming protests to incite a turning point in the national debate over gun laws and force the government to get on board. As high school junior Cameron Kasky concluded: "My message for the people in office is: You're either with us, or against us."
 
The day after  the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday, former President Barack Obama responded to the attack on Twitter. In Thursday's post, he expressed his sympathy for the victims, survivors, and their families, before calling for gun control reform.

"We are grieving with Parkland. But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job. And until we can honestly say that we're doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change," he wrote.

Obama's response to the shooting took a markedly different tone than that of his successor. Immediately after news broke of the shooting on Wednesday, President Donald Trump tweeted:
 
 "My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school."
 
On Thursday morning, Trump took to Twitter once again, this time to comment on the shooter's mental health and history of behavioral issues. Later that day, he made a public address about the tragedy in which, yet again, he failed to mention firearms or gun control.

ALARMING : We’re Averaging One School Shooting Every 60 Hours In 2018

Wednesday’s shooting at a Florida high school is the 18th school shooting of the year.
By Lydia O’Connor
A reported shooting at a South Florida high school on Wednesday marks the country’s 18th school shooting of 2018, just 45 days into the year.

That’s an average of one school shooting every 60 hours thus far in 2018, more than double the number of school shootings recorded in any of the previous three years in that same period. Those numbers are according to data compiled by the gun control advocacy organization Every town for Gun Safety, which defines a school shooting as any time a firearm is discharged on or around a campus.

Details are still emerging about what happened during Wednesday’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, but as of 6:30 pm., at least 15 people had been reported dead.

President Donald Trump has spoken vaguely about the need to curb shootings, saying after the Las Vegas massacre in October that the U.S. would start “talking about gun laws as time goes by.”

Students embrace after being released from a lock down during Wednesday’s shooting.
Some three months later, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had little new information on that subject. 

“The president believes that all Americans deserve to be safe in their schools and in their communities,” Sanders said after a deadly school shooting in Kentucky last month. “We’ve tried to crack down on crime throughout the country.”

Meanwhile, Congress is still looking into loosening some gun control restrictions.
Here are the details from the 17 other school shootings in 2018:

Thanx  to Willa Frej
Witchy sez : "Life without a goal is like sailing on the sea without a destination.” And the leadership is ability to motivate a group of people toward a common goal. Having a leader whom we believe in gives us direction, stability, and the chance for fulfillment. So a good leader plays an important role.
In my mind, I think a good leader should display sincerity and candor in all their actions. Because of deceptive behavior will not inspire trust. To be a leader must be believed by all common people. 

You must stop grabbing p***y's , tweeting  all night , take care of the business your trolls elected you to do  and most off all stop your lying .
Remember  , you have  a son in school  , the private sector of schools  is not immune from violence.
Wake up world .
Have anyone notice  that more violence in the world  is getting worse  as  the climate  gets worse ?

Former student opens fire at Florida high school, killing 17 people and injuring many others

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS     By Elizabeth Elizalde            Updated: Wednesday, February 14, 2018
A former student opened fire at a Florida high school Wednesday, killing at least 17 people and injuring numerous others. 

The suspect — who is in custody — was identified as Nicolas Cruz, who previously attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, an official confirmed to the Associated Press.  

Many victims were transported to Broward Health Medical Center, the Broward County Sheriff's Office said. The extent of their injuries was unknown.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said the suspect previously attended the school and is 18 years old. He added that the shooter was in and out of the school "at varying times."  

Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said there were "numerous fatalities."

Some students were barricaded in classrooms, and others were being escorted out of the building with their hands over their heads. 

A student described the alleged shooter as a "troubled kid" who was a gun enthusiast.

"He shot guns because he said it was exhilarating," the student told WSVN-TV. 

A mother said she communicated with her daughter, a ninth-grader at the school, through text messages.

She's telling me that she is OK," the parent told Local10. "The teacher has them in the back of the classroom. He locked the door. They know what to do. They're doing the proper procedure, but she's terrified."

Student Michael Katz, 15, said he heard a loud bang he thought was a garbage truck around 2:20 p.m.
A shooting was reported at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Wednesday.  
"It was really loud. Then I heard it again," Katz told ABC News. "Then I heard frantic screaming. I've never heard such loud screams in my life. Then we realized there was a shooting at my school."

An English teacher who was in the middle of a lesson when the shooting broke out said she hid her students in a closet for safety. Her friend, who taught in the freshman building, saw at least three bodies on the ground as she was leaving the building, she said.

"This is the type of situation that we just had a training about maybe like six weeks ago," the teacher told CNN. "If we hadn't had that training it could've been a lot worse. A lot of us probably thought this was the drill we were supposed to have." 

SWAT team members and ambulances swarmed the school, which was placed on lockdown. Broward County Schools tweeted that students were being dismissed. 

President Trump was briefed on the shooting, the White House said. 

"My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting," the President tweeted. "No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school."

There have been at least 18 school shootings nationwide this year, according to the gun control advocacy group Everytown For Gun Safety.

Among the shootings was a Jan. 23 attack by a 15-year-old student at a Kentucky high school that killed two students and injured nearly 20 more.
