Good morning and happy Jason Voorhees Day! It’s Friday the 13th and it’s a day that is considered to be bad luck among the superstitious. To go along with many historical facts that point to this day of bad luck we have the ever popular Jason Voorhees. If you don’t know who this fictional character is then you need to rent the movie…wait, rent? Are there still rental stores around? I think everything is either online or compacted into a Redbox or Blockbuster Express. Either way though you can jump on Google and enter “Friday the 13th” or “Jason Voorhees”. Google will spit out millions of responses and you will realize that this is a horror film.
So instead of going through all the history of Jason and Friday the 13th, as I have done in the past, we are going to take a look at his most famous scenes. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about but if you do not like horror films then do not go any further. The following video is not for children or the squeamish. Jason is most famous for stalking and ultimately killing his victims. He was a tortured and bullied child who eventually grew up to take revenge. So without further ado here is Jason Voorhess in 2 minutes!
(One quick note: I do not condone the act of senseless murder, this is only a movie and I am a fan of the horror genre only. Besides, if you have seen any of the Friday the 13th franchise you know that everything looks very fake. Cheers!)

Hello everyone! Whitney and I are back with an epic episode 18 of Within the Trenches. It has been about a month or so since Whit and I were together for an episode but we are back to hook you up with another excellent show. This week both Whitney and I have been battling some health issues but my minor cold and Whit’s ear were unable to hold us back. On this episode we had the pleasure of interviewing none other than the very popular KMK of Diary of a Mad Dispatcher. KMK shared some awesome stories from her dispatch career including her very first 9-1-1 call and another call from a drunk who called in saying that he had fallen off a cliff but what he didn’t realize was that there are no cliffs in the area he was in. Get ready to hear from the Mad Dispatcher herself and make sure to check her out on Facebook and her t-shirt store on etsy.com by searching “The Mad Dispatcher.” As always you can email the show at email@example.com and ‘Like’ our new Facebook page! In this episode I said it was just Within the Trenches but it’s actually Within the Trenches Podcast. Cheers!

Good afternoon folks! I hope everyone is having a great day. This week on Within the Trenches I sat down with Trista of Allegan County Central Dispatch to tell her story. We talked about how she got into the profession of emergency services as well as how callers can screw up her name. We touched on the many questions we ask and how the night shift of 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. can bring horror over the radio. “SHOTS FIRED” is something we never want to hear yelled over the radio but it comes with the job. We describe two incidents that occurred and how we felt during those calls. This is a must listen and make sure to comment. For up to date information on new episodes and more from Within the Trenches, please ‘Like’ Jabber Log on Facebook. You can also subscribe to the show on iTunes or stream it 24/7 on Stitcher. As always if you have any questions or if you would like to be on the show, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers!Post Views: 307

I realize this post is a day late but I had to write something for Tech Thursday even though it’s Friday. So while searching for interesting topics I found an article on Mashable with crazy predictions for 2012. I laughed at a few of the predictions but a couple of them really made me think,
“Could this really happen?”
Like anything in our ever changing world, anything CAN happen. The article from Mashable contains 6 crazy predictions for 2012 and although I will not go through all of them, I will touch on the ones that peaked my interest the most. The first prediction involves SOPA and the Internet. If you do not know what SOPA is you need to educate yourself and Google it. In short though, SOPA stands for “Stop Online Piracy Act”. It may sound great to some but in all honesty it’s nothing but bad news. I posted on it a few weeks ago and you can read it by clicking here. The politically driven folks are trying to pawn this bill off as a way to protect creativity and ones property but in a sense it does just the opposite in reference to creativity. If this bill were to pass we would be screwed. The way we use the Internet would literally change over night and free thinking creativity, which is supposed to be protected by this bill, would be destroyed and taken away from us. To give you an idea of what it would be like I want you to think about how you use Facebook. You log on, see what your friends are doing and a song pops in your head. You go to YouTube, find the video and post it on Facebook for all to see. Pretty normal right? Well if SOPA passes a few things could happen with the previous scenario. If you posted the video on Facebook and the owner felt that it was harming their best interest a complaint could be filed against you. It would be removed, you would probably pay a fine and SOPA wins. The scenario could very well happen but I think money also plays a factor here. Facebook is worth billions so it’s possible that the law would only fall on smaller fish that are on their way up. It’s almost like a drug dealer who has made a deal with the law. They protect each other and if smaller dealers come into play they tell the law and the law takes them out in order to protect the bigger player.
So after my somewhat short explanation, here’s prediction #3 from Mashable’s, “6 Crazy Tech Predictions for 2012”.
“Myopic congressman and a distracted president take the Stop Online Piracy Act and pass it into law. Designed, at least according to the bill, “To promote prosperity, creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation by combating the theft of U.S. property, and for other purposes,” SOPA has an almost unprecedented chilling effect on the web. Thousands of U.S. sites shut down, other larger ones continue, but are now full of boring pap that could never be misconstrued as content piracy.
Content creators of all stripes are so unsure of what will be labeled piracy they struggle to create anything. By the end of 2012, however, an underground Internet (The UnderWebs) arises. It’s full of unfettered communication and content, and slowly but surely, millions of web surfers around the world begin using it instead of the government-policed Internet — a platform that dies a sad, quiet death in 2018.”
How crazy is that prediction? It almost gives off a Demolition Man vibe with “The UnderWebs” idea. It’s definitely crazy to think but it’s a possible scenario that we will all have to face if the bill is passed.
The next predication involves Honda’s Asimo robot. Have you ever heard of this? Does it ring a bell? It’s rather amazing what the people over at Honda have been doing in the robotic humanoid department. Asimo is a robot that is designed to help accomplish things around the house for the elderly, disabled, and others. It can do many things and as years pass, Honda’s creation continues to evolve. I first saw a commercial for Asimo back in 2003. I believe it was a Super Bowl spot and it only aired once. The commercial showed Asimo walking around the house but I believe it only showed its feet. It then switches to a shot of a garage. As the door opens it reveals a small robot. A paper boy passes by and throws a newspaper that lands in the driveway. Asimo walks out towards it, picks it up, and waves. I was floored when I saw this. I thought it was the greatest thing and I immediately began to research Honda’s Asimo. After reading what it could do I thought of the robot maid from The Jetsons. If Honda can accomplish all of their goals involving Asimo, I think it could make a difference in the lives of those who need constant care.
With that said, here’s prediction #6 from Mashable.
“Japanese auto manufacturer Honda shocks the world by unveiling a fully operational, $1,999 Honda Asimo Home Helper Robot. Like the Asimo we’ve seen in product demonstrations and on YouTube, “Home Asimo” can walk, run, jump, make coffee and sandwiches and, as we soon learn, clean toilets. Honda sells a stunning half million units before August, 2012. The most startling news, though, comes when one Home Honda robot in Dearborn, Michigan turns on its family’s computer and signs itself up for Twitter and Facebook. By December, more than 300,000 of the robots have been destroyed or returned.”
This prediction is funny but with that much artificial intelligence it could possibly happen. Asimo could very well join forces with Xbox’s Kinect and rule the world for all we know. Google is using facial recognition on Google+ and our tech dreams and fantasies continue to come true. 2012 is definitely going to be a year where tech goes beyond the scope of imagination so look out.
