Hacker scares baby

I think this is just insane! Some random guy hacked into this families baby monitor and starts screaming at the child. This made me wonder if someone hacked into my little sister’s baby monitor. These type of things make you insecure and wonder what people can do. If they can hack into my phone’s camera and watch where I am and what I’m doing.

I think we need an internet police force that can protect us from things like this. This is a new day and age and we need to find a way to keep people safe from hackers.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar reaction: http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/sports/2014/04/27/nr-whitfield-kareem-abdul-jabbar-sterling-comments.cnn.html

KAJ wasn’t surprised by this. He used to work for Sterling and he knows his voice. He was friends.

Magic Johnson’s reaction: http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2014/04/27/nr-nichols-nba-reaction-to-sterling-alleged-comments.cnn.html

Magic thinks Sterling should step down because this type of attitude should not be allowed in the NBA. He was also close friends with Sterling and they used to hang out together, so he was shocked that he would say something like that.

President Obama’s reaction: http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2014/04/27/sot-obama-in-malaysia-on-nba-sterling.cnn.html

President Obama thinks ignorant people will show their ignorance. This reminds me of a saying my mom used to say all the time. What’s in the dark will always come to the light.

Why has this taking so long to be created? This reminds me of an air conditioner. In the summer time if you walk the streets of Philadelphia, you can often see air conditioners hanging out the windows of many houses. I’m always seeing those air conditioners dripping water so a lot, some a little. So if simple air conditioners can do this, why is this taking so long to get to our homes? Is there something wrong with it?

If someone farts next to it, does the water taste bad?

“In 1999, class A office vacancy in the city was at 6.6%, leading developer Willard Rouse to envision a new tower. Cable company Comcast had been looking for possible new headquarters space in anticipation of the end of its lease in Centre Square in 2006. Comcast was looking for more than 400,000 square feet (37,000 m2) of office space and developers were actively courting the company for their developments. Comcast was the only employer in the city with major expansion plans at the time.” ~ Wikipedia

I look up to William Rouse for designing this sky-scraper. It’s really raised the bar for other architects as it take its place as the tallest  building in Philadelphia and the 15th tallest in the country. I hope that someday I can bring myself to designing something to inspire other architects.

“The enormous numbers of newspaper articles/forum complaints, etc. claiming how architecture as a JOB = no sleep + not truly permitted to be creative + high risk of unemployment + not paid enough for all the hard work”

I’m starting to rethink picking this to major in. I don’t want to pick a career that’s unstable and could potentially leave me unemployed for long amounts of time. I think living in a city like Philadelphia will lead to many employing opportunities because there is such a big population.
