Unsung American hero: Jerry Parr

(CORONA) As reported by Martin Weil October 10 at 8:05 AM: "Jerry S. Parr, the quick-thinking and fast-moving Secret Service agent who was credited with saving the life of President Ronald Reagan after the 1981 assassination attempt in Washington, died Oct. 9 at a hospice center near his home in Washington. He was 85. The cause was congestive heart failure, said his wife, Carolyn Parr. Mr. Parr had been an electric power lineman before his Secret Service years and a clergyman in retirement. But he was best known for the fraught moments after gunfire erupted on March 30, 1981, as the president was leaving the Washington Hilton Hotel."  ▶ STORY

When Dodgers left Brooklyn for LA

(CORONA) Our household is primarily an American League loyalist, hence Los Angeles Dodgers of Anaheim fans.  But due to the Angele elimination from the 2015 MLB playoffs on the last day of the season, Oct. 4, we will gladly adopt the Los Angeles Dodgers as our local team, along with millions of others both here in California and well beyond.

Online sports gambling called out

(CORONA) The almost instant rise and widespread publicity and advertising for #DraftKings and #FanDuel almost guaranteed a certain conundrum:  How could these online gaming (gambling) operations not become victims of their own success?

Swedish workday hours: 8 - 2 = 6

(CORONA) We live in a common interest development or homeowners association (HOA) in the Inland Empire of Southern California, near the usually congested freeway intersection of Interstates 91 and 15 that converge just east of Corona near the Temescal Valley.  Because we are retired, we take special pains not to travel the local freeways during morning or evening rush hours.  However, when that is not possible, we occasionally observe thousands on workday commutes and ask the question that follows in this post.

Truth about Rent vs Buy

(CORONA) We live in a common interest development or homeowners association (HOA) in the Inland Empire of Southern California, so we seldom see first-time home buyers moving into our community.  Not true, of course, for the typical neighborhood.  The topic under this title is of interest to millions today and millions more in the future.  The factor of HOA dues is no small consideration for many home owners, not just those who are purchasing for the first time.

14 years of marking 9/11

(altacities.com) There is but one generation alive today that lacks vivid recall of this date and the day the world simply calls 9/11.  Of course, that is the Gen-Zrs, those born after the year 2000.  For the rest of us, particularly those living in the USA, the date usually surrounds the question:  What were we doing on that date and at that fateful time?

Apple iPad finally goes pro

(Fly★on★the★Web) Nothing about a new Apple product announcement can be considered trivial or mundane.  Such is the observation of yesterday's rollout of the iPad Pro that, of course, has resulted in countless stories, clips, links and social current see, some of which follows below.

#Coffee junkies take this to heart

Flip②▶STORIFY 
As world beverages go, is there anything more popular than coffee?

According to this SOURCE, "Coffee is a brewed drink with a distinct aroma and flavor, prepared from roasted coffee beans, the seeds found inside "berries" of the Coffee plant. Coffee plants are cultivated in over 70 countries, primarily in the equatorial regions of the Americas, Southeast Asia, India and Africa.

"The two most commonly grown are the highly regarded arabica, and the less sophisticated but stronger and more hardy robusta. The latter is resistant to the coffee leaf rust, Hemileia vastatrix, but has a more bitter taste. Once ripe, coffee beans are picked, processed, and dried. Green (unroasted) coffee beans are one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world. Once traded, the beans are roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor, before being ground and brewed to create the beverage."

News story: When journalists are

Flip②▶STORIFY
Will the ending or resolution of the Brian Williams story come within days, weeks, or perhaps longer? Certainly, in our lifetime, there is nothing like watching the media scramble to cover or expose their fellow practitioners. Broadcast journalists are all over the place with regard to this story and at times it seems that the story is getting more play than it deserves.
