Sounds like something is not right here!

How do you live on ten freaking dollars? That’s how much my payee sent me. this week.I am getting less money from the stupid payee than I did before a voucher started covering most of my rent! Everybody seems to think I have no right to my own funds. Then they gripe when I don’t buy clothes and sheets and food. And do laundry. Have no money in my pocket! then claim I am wasting funds. How can I be wasting it when I’m struggling so hard it’s destroying me? That I’m worthless garbage and so no right to the basics needed to live. After all I’m handicapped. Maybe to live at all. Nobody will help me. If I really am garbage with “no right to live” then maybe I shouldn’t live any longer. Been thinking that way a lot. I can’t take this anymore. The hate and poverty. And…

Verizon Kills Off Subsidies And Contracts, Simplifies Data Plans

JesseGarboden:

This is great news They just have to lower the base price to include the smart phone as well.

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Verizon announced a brand new line-up of monthly plans for new customers. Following T-Mobile’s model, plans are now a bit cheaper and easier to understand. But you should expect to pay more for your phone as Verizon (TechCrunch’s parent parent company) will only sell you unsubsidized phones.

Here’s how it’s going to work. All plans come with unlimited voice and texts and starts at $30 per month. But for $30, you only get 1GB. If you need more data, you can pay $45 for 3GB, $60 for 6GB or $80 for 12GB. Chances are you are going to use your SIM card in a smartphone. The access fee will cost you $20 for a smartphone. So these new plans are not excessively cheaper than the old ones.

If you want to share these data plans with other devices, connecting a tablet costs $10 per month. For the 12 smartwatch owners…

Surprised by His Love

Psalm‬ ‭18:16-19‬ ‭
But me he caught—reached all the way from sky to sea; he pulled me out Of that ocean of hate, that enemy chaos, the void in which I was drowning. They hit me when I was down, but GOD stuck by me. He stood me up on a wide-open field; I stood there saved—surprised to be loved!

I recently created a new playlist on my Spotify account. I named the playlist “Worthy.” Worthy is one of my current favorite songs. In this song Anthony Brown highlights the following three thoughts:

  • He thought I was worth saving, so he came and changed my life.
  • He thought I was worth keeping, so he cleaned me up inside.
  • He thought I was to die for, so he sacrificed his life, so I can be free, so I be whole, so I can tell everyone I know.

I think these thoughts…

With Water Running Out, Freight Farms Launches 2015 Farm-In-A-Box

JesseGarboden:

Love this Idea!

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Climate change is real, and it is getting uglier. Global temperatures are continuing to rise, placing enormous strain on water and food supplies throughout the world. Many areas have been hit hard by the climate disruption, but none more prominently than California, where the state has entered its fourth year of drought with massively diminishing water supplies and hectares of fallow land.

Water supplies may not be top of mind for many techies in the Bay Area – Tartine and Blue Bottle’s recent marriage is unlikely to be thwarted by some tap water problems. The challenge is that agriculture is a huge industry not just for California, but for the United States. The state produced almost a fifth of the country’s total agriculture output, worth almost $50 billion in 2013. With water supplies tightening, there has been growing attention to the high environmental costs of growing almonds

Kifi Debuts A “Deep” Search Engine For Twitter Based On Your Own Tweets

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

A startup called Kifi is rolling out a new tool that allows you to automatically save all the links you tweet in order to create a personalized search engine that includes those links as well as others it recommends based on what you’ve already shared. Called “Kifi for Twitter,” the company describes the new feature as something of a deep search engine for Twitter because it’s not only indexing the tweet itself, but also the actual content contained in those links you’ve shared, allowing you to more easily retrieve this information in the future.

Explains Mark Yoshitake, VP of Product at Kifi, “one of the huge problems that we’ve found is that people have a hard time recalling the wealth of information they’ve found and shared on social networks.”

As you probably know, if you’re not regularly engaged on social media and keeping an eye on your many streams, then information often…
