High tech Vs ISIS cave dwellers

Boeing patent reveals plans for Star Trek-style FORCE FIELD: Device would protect vehicles and buildings from explosion shockwaves. A force field that can protect vehicles from the destructive blast-waves thrown out by explosions is being developed by aircraft manufacturer Boeing.boeing patentThe company has been granted a patent for a device that appears to work like the fictional shields seen in science fiction movies like Star Wars and Star Trek. The system works by using an ‘arc generator’ to rapidly heat the air in front of a shockwave creating a cloud of electrically charged gas. The ‘arc generator’ uses lasers, microwaves or electric current to ionise the air in front of the shockwave so it deflects & reflects energy from the explosion

This in addition to; The ARMOUR that can repel direct incoming fire: 
British military scientists have been working on a new type of armour designed to repel incoming fire from vehicles. The armour, developed by researchers at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) would use pulses of electrical energy to defelct rockets, shrapnel and other ammunition that might damage a vehicle. Engineers behind the technology claim it is possible to incorporate supercapacitors into the body of a tank or armoured personnel carrier to turn it into a kind of giant battery.defence-science-and-technology-laboratory-dstl-testing-electric-armour-740x555

When incoming fire is detected, the energy stored in the supercapacitor can be rapidly dumped onto the metal plating on the outside of the vehicle, producing a strong electromagnetic field that creates a momentary forecfield capable of repelling incoming metal. If timed correctly, the scientists behind the technology say it could help to prevent rocket propelled grenades and shells that detonate on impact from reaching their target. (DSTL), testing electric armour on an armoured personnel carrier at one their test range facilities

Hearing hands – video call centre

Muharrem Yazgan is a regular guy who suffers from hearing loss. Normally, communication with strangers is a challenge for him, but on this particular day he noticed something very different about his city. The touching stunt was set in motion by Muharrem’s sister, who helped Samsung and fellow residents pull it off, which allowed Muharrem to have one day without barriers…

Positive marketing by Samsung, but what they now offer is an incredible lifeline to a lot of people who are hearing impaired. You may well be surprised at how many recent armed forces veterans would benefit from a video call centre  – just to get through the daily grind of life. We should never take what we have for granted.   Yours Aye.

Not wishing to pee on anyone’s bonfire, but; I’ve been using driverless cars for years – they’re called ‘taxis!’ You just open the back door – take a deep breath – and burble something you hope sounds like your current address to the driver – then you promptly fall asleep. Simple!  Yours Aye.

Anonymous please note “Mellow Jihadi”

AnonymousHacker group Anonymous ‘declare war on Jihadist’s after Charlie Hebdo massacre by pledging to target terrorists on social media. Authorities targeting extremists may have found an unlikely ally in the group in the battle against terrorism after the activists released a video condemning the gun attack at the satirical magazine which left 12 people dead. 

In the clip, which was uploaded to the group’s Belgian YouTube account, a figure wearing the group’s Guy Fawkes mask and a hood says in French in an electronically distorted voice: ‘We are declaring war against you, the terrorists.’ lonerangeronsilver2

Broadband speed to warp factor 10

The past several days have been some what of a nightmare. The kind of nightmare where the final assault through an enemy position depends upon speed and muscle memory, yet every step taken is in slow motion, as the ground turns to thick oozing black sticky treacle! Which is all down to my ‘Internet Service Provider’ (oxymoron) not providing the service as contracted. My ISP download speed has decreased each day, even though I pay through the nose for their best available technology. Living in the sticks comes with its own pro’s and con’s, which I readily accept; but having gotten used to a moderate speed – the slow down ‘to a virtual halt’ has taken its toll in more ways than one. Even after numerous calls to the dreaded land of broken pidgin English, it still remains as slow as Joe Biden’s learning curve…  Vice President Joe Biden ordering three beers…article-2518060-19D4C3BD00000578-283_634x460 Having called my ISP ‘help desk’ multiple times it would now appear that I have spoken to all of the siblings of the Singh, and the Gupta family, as well as their extended family members. It was whilst speaking to one of the Kapoor brood earlier today that I had to politely ask for someone who could speak English a little better, as I was really struggling to understand ‘Peter’ the tech advisor. My request must have hit a raw nerve as he lost his cool and sarcastically said “Do you speak Hindi?” To which I politely replied “Good Gawd man don’t be silly, I am English-born and bred, I don’t need to speak Hindi!”

I hate being cut off in mid sentence, I find it very rude, and totally unprofessional :-)article-1110664-0037521B0000044C-569_468x315

Hannah and Nipper have benefitted from the past weeks intermittent digital transfer as we have pounded the country lane more often than usual. It also keeps their claws filed down, and assists in tightening their paw muscles – something field walks tend to slacken off.arnold_schwarzenegger_53164 

It’s true that I have also benefitted from the additional exercise, especially through grinding my teeth in seething anger, which has left me with the strengthened jaw muscles of a young Arnie Schwarzenegger.

It was through the course of such a walk (after todays part conversation with ‘Peter’)  that I actually happened upon the reason of the faulty download speed. A mile from my humble abode I walked past the soles on a pair of boots protruding from a dense bush that were connected to a pair of trousered legs belonging to a British Telecom engineer – tinkering inside a steel cable cabinet. Who almost went into shock when Nipper sniffed his bottom just as I said “Hello mate!” Fortunately he was wearing a hard hat, as he whacked his head on the lip of the box…Broadband

Similar: A BT ‘Openreach’ engineer working on a roadside fibre broadband cabinet.

After chatting with the engineer it transpires that BT are now replacing the old system with a £2.5 billion super-fast fibre broadband programme – that includes my humble abode’s post coded area. Which places me within the ‘warp factor speed’ of the Enterprise class, and out of the ‘haste of a striking slug’ class. Such tinkering over the last several days on both systems appears to have created blockages within the whole system, and it took a blunt speaking Yorkshire engineer to explain and resolve it! I’ve grown fond of my super toned jaw line, and enjoyed the additional country lane walks, I now need to seek frustration elsewhere for it to continue…     Yours Aye.

And while British Telecom seeks to reduce its bills (vastly) by outsourcing its IT ‘help desk’ to India. It cuts no corners on spending within its UK-based call centres, from where it pushes its products hard onto the British consumer. The following clip drops the F bomb, quite often, and quite loud. It is not recommended for those little cherubs under the age of 18, or anyone who is easily offended: It is definitely Not Safe For Work, especially if you work in a convent, nursing home, anger management organisation, or any such institution. BT F bombThis is a genuine recorded phone call made by an agent from a UK-based British Telecom call centre to a fed up BT customer whose number is listed as Ex Directory; Listen to the very end of the clip to hear the agents request to his line manager…

Scientists test jet-pack to help soldiers run faster on the battlefield! Think of a jet-pack and you may imagine flying over a futuristic city, inspired by scenes in sci-fi films. But the technology could also be used to enable soldiers to run faster in war-zones in a matter of years. US engineers have created a working prototype that attaches to people’s backs and helps them to run a mile in a much shorter space of time – despite carrying the large metal pack.   So what happens when the ‘off’ button malfunctions?1410520591941_wps_16_image001_png

* Engineers from Arizona State University have created a working prototype jetpack that attaches to a soldier’s back and helps them run faster.
* The 4MM project’s aim is to enhance the speed and agility of the wearer of a jetpack so they can run a four-minute mile with ease.
* Inventors say their packs could help soldiers escape dangerous situations on the battlefield and potentially save their lives, giving them more energy.

Engineers develop a thruster to enable soldiers to run faster on the battlefield…

‘Humin’ a new contacts and phone app

HuminHumin is a new contacts and phone app that captures all of your relationships and remembers them in the way that you naturally think…

As I have often stated in the past, “To a certain extent, I am a gadget man.” And while I doff my cap towards Sharon Standifird in the post below; I do think that there is far too much personal information being projected around the molecular airwaves that is open to abuse. Before long we will need an app that  acts as a ‘COMPLETE BLOCKER’ to protect ourselves. It follows that a variety of government listening ‘Agencies’ will see this as a threat, and selectively intercept a person’s every day life who purchases ‘COMPLETE BLOCKER’ Which is a fictitious app name invented purely for this post. No doubt I have already incurred the wrath of the afore-mentioned government listening ‘Agencies’ by typing ‘COMPLETE BLOCKER’ three times, and publishing this post for all to read.dewey-cheatem-and-howe A note from the Mellow Jihadi legal team ‘Dewey, Cheatem & Howe.’ (Which is also fictitious, and a figment of the ‘3 stooges’ writers mind.) ‘COMPLETE BLOCKER’ is not available on the market as it does not exist. However; the Mellow Jihadi blog will quote artistic licence and demand a 25 % fee from any individual, firm, company, or registered organisation, who use the words, or title COMPLETE BLOCKER on any product. Oh Bollock’s! Unintentionally I have typed out ‘COMPLETE BLOCKER’ six times…  You read it here first.  :-)    Yours Aye.

article-2727267-209954C200000578-765_634x500You don’t want to mess with Sharon Standifird of Houston, Texas. Fed up with her son’s failure to pick up the phone when she calls and his ability to never answer her texts, the discerning Houston mom decided, with the ways of modern technology, surely she could do something about it. ‘I literally just started researching how to develop an app,’ Standifird told CBS

article-2727267-20995D0B00000578-953_634x1115Once she started, Standifird didn’t stop, and after a few months of designing the application and then meeting with a developer, the result was IGNORE NO MORE The app allows Standifird to deactivate the phone belonging to her son, Bradley, after installing it onto his iPhone.

Bradley requires a password to reactive the phone, which only his mom has. He cannot call or text anyone but his mom when Ignore No More is activated. The phone will let him dial 911, (UK’s 999) but it won’t allow him access to the internet or games.article-2727267-20995D0100000578-255_634x1111

Sharon Standifird, of Texas, has successfully developed an app called Ignore No More, allowing parents to lock their child’s phone until they call back, and it’s yours for $1.99.

Perhaps the next step is to play a really awful tune (Beiber springs to mind!) that cannot be turned off until the phone is answered. B.Z. Sharon Standiford of Houston, Texas. I personally would just cancel the phone, or put an axe through it; tough love…      Yours Aye.

Eenie Meenie Miney Mo… ‘WHUMPH’

ATO Egyptian StupidityTwo Egyptian police officers have died trying to defuse bombs found near the presidential palace in Cairo. The bombs were placed at and near to a busy crossroads close to the palace. Several other police officers were injured. One other bomb was defused. The devices possibly originate with Ajnad Misr, an underground opposition movement that said it planted explosives in the area several days ago. It later said it would not trigger them, but admitted they proved impossible to recover.  Last week the Egyptian capital’s underground railway was hit with four small homemade bombs, the first attack of its kind since the swearing-in of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.   Egyptian Police Tech Officers bending the rules & pay the price…

Unbelievable! Here’s ‘NOT’ how to do it. Notice the bloke with the camera at 32 seconds in as he is approached by a police officer, and advised to step back for his own safety (ten feet away?) Had the IED been packed with dockyard confetti they would have all suffered a pretty bad day. I carry a couple of scars from an indiscriminate IED that went off on a timer 200 feet away, which ruined my day as well as a brand new ‘norje’ fleece top…     Yours Aye. 

Madness induced by the MSM

Controversial smartphone app for children age 12 ‘promotes gold-digging, bondage-inspired lingerie and flirting for rewards’ A smartphone game that encourages girls to dress sexily and go on dates with ‘hot guys’ in the hope of becoming models has come under fire for promoting the wrong values to girls. Star Girl, which has 1.3million likes on Facebook and was until recently aimed at children aged four+ on iTunes, is now rated 12+ but is played by thousands of young children. It invites children to step ‘into the high heels of an aspiring celebrity who is setting out to build her career as a superstar while having a ton of fun along the way’.   article-2669021-1F1B711000000578-193_634x471Controversial smartphone app for children age 12 ‘promotes gold-digging, bondage-inspired lingerie and flirting for rewards’ 

What are we doing to ourselves, and why do we allow these companies to get away with it? Society is constantly being degraded by the main stream media, who glorify trashy celebrities to such an extent that there appears to be no moral code what so ever governing them. This is what we end up with here in the UK, and she is just the thin end of the wedge...article-2667123-1F081EB200000578-803_306x495

‘Miss Cunningham,’ (right) who is pregnant after working as an escort prostitute, revealed in The Sun newspaper that she had cut down from 40 cigarettes a day to 20, but would need help from her GP to cut the habit completely. She said on a TV show: ‘I’m hoping my doctor will be able to help get me off the fags. But the public will probably whinge about funding that as well.’

Anti-smoking advice, counselling, drugs and patches are all available on the NHS, but at a cost to the taxpayer.

News that Miss Cunningham had a breast augmentation, funded by the same NHS trust that refused to fund surgery that would have enabled a two-year-old girl with a form of cerebral palsy to walk, provoked outrage across the country.  She sparked outrage after posting a provocative tweet saying: ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but tax payers will always fund me’article-2667123-1F12A0DF00000578-339_634x433

Miss Cunningham later claimed her breasts, which were boosted from a 32A to a 36D, were ‘so big’ she found them embarrassing, and said the NHS should pay for a reduction. Then she tried to placate public opinion by promising to pay back the cash. But when she became pregnant after working as a £1,000-a-night escort, prostitute she admitted she could not uphold her pledge – and now continues to soak up public funds. She has had £1,500 of Botox treatment for excessive sweating, and two months ago, she boasted she would be having £2,500 of free dental work now she is expecting a child who she is clueless over the father’s identity. Pregnant delusional escort prostitute, and wannabe ‘glamour model’ costs the British taxpayers thousands of pounds, and she wants and expects more

More gross mismanagement and overspend by the lunatics running the National Health Service… This delusional slapper should be sterilised for free, and then be allowed to act out her dreams at no further cost to the tax payer.                ‘Bejeezus give me strength’           Yours Aye.

The state of your State!

What does YOUR state search for? Map reveals New Yorkers need bail money, Californians are researching Alcoholics Anonymous, while Pennsylvanians are pondering back shaving! An insightful, and at times terrifying insight into the mind of the average American. A new map has revealed what each state uses Google to search for. The results, which range from New Yorkers looking for bail money to Florida’s fascination with alligator wrestling, give a rare insight into each state’s way of thinking.article-2636772-1E1F3DFB00000578-705_634x453Estately used Google’s Trends to determine which words, terms, and questions each state was searching for more than any other.

‘America’s fifty states have a lot in common, but if their internet search histories are any indication they also have significant differences,’ said property firm Estately. It used Google’s Trends to determine which words, terms, and questions each state was searching for more than any other. ‘No doubt this information will come in handy for anyone trying to decide which state they want to buy a home in, especially for those curious how their potential neighbors spend their time online,’ the site said. 

Google Trends is a free search tool based on Google Search. Amongst a huge range of queries, it can show how often a particular search-term is entered relative to the total search-volume across various regions of the world, and in various languages. It also offers a short analysis for each state. For instance, in New Hampshire, Cats, Ellen Degeneres, Fireworks and Free Kittens were the top queries, leading to the pithy analysis ‘You can pet New Hampshire’s cats when you pry them from their cold, dead hands!?’
