With or Without?
If your device dies, you can usually find a place to plug in. But that’s only if you carry your charging cord and even if you’re lucky enough to have it on you, you’re stuck at the outlet until you’ve got enough juice to go.
The electronics accessory company Satechi has made it easier to stay charged on the go with three new portable energy stations for pretty much anything with a USB port.
The elegant aluminum chargers, which Satechi introduced on Tuesday, can power up multiple devices at once if needed and is good for iPhones, iPads, cameras, MP3 players and Android products. The largest, the $40 SX20, has two 1A ports and two 2.4A ports to charge up to four devices.
The SX5 has one port, costs about $20, and is ideal to stash in a pocket or bag. The SX 10 costs $30 and has a 1A and 2.4A port.
Satechi makes a number of chargers and external batteries, smart phone and camera mounts, portable speakers, FM transmitters and other accessories. It even has entered the smart home space with smart lightbulbs.
Using the same tactics used by gay rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.
Critics of the homosexual lifestyle have long claimed that once it became acceptable to identify homosexuality as simply an alternative lifestyle or sexual orientation, logically nothing would be off limits.
Gay advocates have taken offense at such a position insisting this would never happen. However, psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined several years ago.
In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. A group of psychiatrists with B4U-Act recently held a symposium proposing a new definition of pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders of the APA.
B4U-Act calls pedophiles minor-attracted people. The organizationís website states its purpose is to, help mental health professionals learn more about attraction to minors and to consider the effects of stereotyping, stigma and fear.
Italy-based artist Cristina Guggeri recently released a series of images called Il Dovere Quotidiano, or “The Daily Duty”, which features a collection of world rulers on the toilet. The inferred purpose of this particular work of art is to show that the people who “lord” over us and claim authority are flesh and blood people just like me and you. The art features anyone from Barack Obama, to Vladimir Putin, to the pope and the queen of England. This is a reminder to everyone that those in power do not really have “special powers” like the media would like everyone to believe.
The photos have amused millions around the world, but some people who seem to have an unhealthy love of authority have taken offense to the photos, saying that they are disrespectful. It would be interesting to hear what the people who were depicted would have to say, and how seriously they take themselves.
Out of all of those who were selected, it would probably be safe to say that that the Dalai Lama would have the best sense of humor about it.
Guggeri is an experienced artist with a number of past exhibits, but this does seem to be her most political, and socially provocative work so far. With millions of views worldwide, it also seems like this is also her most popular so far.
