Yelp is hard to find value with when they delete pics without notice

I’m so frustrated with Yelp. They could relax their tight anuses a little bit about the captions. We are only allowed like 140 characters. It’s just a simple Twitter feed put into the caption that not everybody sees anyway. Some people might even miss the caption if they don’t click on the pic. 

Yelp ignores businesses paying for good reviews and goes after people who post something that might be called promotional in a picture caption.

How does Hearthstone Matchmaking Work? Is there a mechanic to pair similar decks?

After playing for a few years, I notice that when I make a new deck, I will tend to get some wild opponent deck that may not be so good either. It’s like they reset any kind of algorithm placed against my deck and pair me against a very random player. But if I start winning and beating a lot of people with that deck for the first few games, I am quickly given opponents that have opposite decks that are better at countering my deck, or I’m even given an opponent with the same deck, like we both looked at Icy-veins together.

Could I keep changing my deck to get more wild opponents that make risky decks as well? How many cards do I have to change to reset my deck algorithm? Or am I making a wrong assumption about how Hearthstone match ups occur?

Chinatown, Salinas, California is run by Black Thugs

I was surprised by the numbers of gang members in the area. One black started shouting orders to several other black guys to stop me and find out why I was “video taping”. Why were they so concerned and why is there such lawlessness in this area? Maybe this kind of activity is what led to the mayor declaring war on the homeless in Boise, ID. 

When you can’t walk in the area where these homeless are and feel safe, there is a growing problem. The homeless and the people with them need to be scared of authority to learn to be respectful of other people’s rights!

(Video) Is it Smart for Charities to Buy the Things they Donate?

I never really gave the charity situation much thought until I went to the Seventh Day Adventist foodbank in Bakersfield, California. One of the volunteers said that they can’t maintain a regular distribution schedule because they buy all their own food to donate to us. Since they don’t always have the money available for purchasing in bulk, they have to skip some of their distribution days.

First I question why an organization gets involved in charity work. Is there an attractive tax benefit to spend some resources on giving free food to the poor. This has always been curious to me. I can understand that the charity volunteers might get first pick of the food, or even a little extra portions for themselves. Although some people need to work off some kind of debt to society through the legal system too.

Second, how does a food bank charity get involved with the food distribution networks. Can it be too hard to maintain good relations with some of them? If the charity organizations can’t maintain good relations with each other to maintain an effective food distribution network, them channels of delivery break down. This can lead to waste, where the grocery stores, or even the farmers resort to dumping their produce into the trash.

I have always looked at the food banks as being one step above dumpster diving. When the food banks can’t maintain a good relation with the local grocery stores, then people may have to take a sneaky step backward and camp out behind the stores for when the foods are being dumped. What system works best for people in the region? Every situation is different.

Also, this food bank not only spent their own money on the food bank items, but they also purchased mostly unhealthy junk food as a result. Feeding the poor junk food does not help out their situation. Sugar extracts have been proven to damage our health and lead to rising healthcare costs. Whatever deals the charity groups think they are getting are in turn lost through the sugar extract products that were cheaper.

How Many Copyright Strike does it take for YouTube to disavow the Email being used?

The Krissy Lynn Bertone email out of Australia has been used almost 15 times to successfully take down my channel twice and currently has disabled my ability to post. This is getting ridiculous. By the looks of things, this copyright troll is not using any kind of YouTube account, otherwise YouTube may be able to terminate their channel. Instead, the troll is referring to some kind of video outside YouTube to use as a claim against my own videos. I’m not sure how that works exactly.

YouTube seems to be taking slow steps in disqualifying the Bertone email, hopefully progressing further to a blacklisting. 

Sequence of legal response steps that YouTube takes:

1. Terminate the channel on 3 copyright strikes in 3 months.

   a. Return all monetization earnings back to advertisers. Disabling Adsense.

2. Terminate the channel on 3+ or more copyright strikes. 

   a. Hold the monetization earnings in case the channel gets reinstated again.

3. Disable the uploading feature, but allow channel to remain visible to public.

   a. Continue monetization on existing videos.


I can only hope the next step is to invalidate the emails being used to make false copyright illegal claims by the trolls.

(4 Videos) Let’s Drive the Route 66; between Barstow & Victorville; witness big sand storm

This drive takes 13 minutes longer to get to Victorville than the Highway, covering over 30 miles. There really isn’t much to see on this drive. Very little evidence of any commercial activity to promote fun and excitement. Much of the advertising is to sell land along the roadway. I’m sure you can find a good bargain with one of the real estate agents.
