Computer vulnerabilities are many

posted: 03/30/2016 5 a.m.

The Internet has been with us for some 20 years now, and I don't recall any technological development that has caught on more quickly or more thoroughly than this one has. Since I am a 1940 model and am getting some age on me now, I have seen quite a few new technologies come into our way of life. When I was very young, radio broadcasting was big, and television had not appeared on the scene. Really nice radios in very attractive and expensive wooden cabinets were available for home use, and many families were well-off enough to afford one of those. Although television was becoming practical for homes around 1947, most of us around Pea Ridge didn't see television sets until 1951 or so. Our family got our first television in 1953, and our first home telephone in 1954. Televisions and dial-up telephones caught on quickly, but I don't recall the advance of TV and phone technology moving as fast as computers and the Internet.

In the Old Testament book of Exodus, we are given the account of Moses -- a Hebrew raised as an Egyptian prince who commits murder and subsequently finds himself tending sheep on the back side of the desert. While there, in an amazing "burning bush" encounter, Moses is reminded of his heritage and commissioned for service. The Lord is about to deliver his people from their Egyptian slavery, and Moses is to appear before Pharaoh and intervene on their behalf.

The yelling of a German officer can just be heard from the German trench a few hundred-thousand feet off. "Ein! Zwei! Dwei!" He'd yell, over and over again, a drill most likely. A few soldiers are writing letters, sleeping, or listening to the song.

Obsolete again

posted: 03/16/2016 5 a.m.

Computers are at times such great help, very useful, and fun to use. At other times they are a grief and a headache! I have just gone through a computer crash which was brought on by mechanical failure within one of my two hard drives. My computer by some measures was getting old. I had bought it originally in 2002, when we first moved back to Pea Ridge. That was when we had the computer shop in the Battlefield Mall on the southeast corner of South Curtis and Lee Town. I had wanted to have a computer that I could assemble myself, and one that could be updated over many years, rather than being replaced every few years. Since 2002, I had had troubles from time to time with almost every component, including the main board (mother board), the CD Drive, the floppy drive, and three different hard drives. So, although the case was from 2002, everything inside had been replaced at least once. I didn't think of it as 14 years old, which would really be ancient for a computer; I thought of it as maybe four or five years old. My computer repairman looked at it, and remarked, "Looks like it's getting pretty old, brother!"

What's in a name?

When I first came to the area and learned that the Pea Ridge mascot was a Blackhawk, I thought that was a real good mascot since it is kinda rare, with very few schools having a Blackhawk for a mascot across the United States. I looked up nine schools in the USA with that mascot name, but most of them had a Blackhawk as in Indian warrior, not a bird.

More changes in the ways we vote

posted: 03/09/2016 5 a.m.

Over the past several years, at least three major changes have come about in how we cast our ballots in elections. The first change that I would note is the arrival of electronic voting machines. The Ivotronic voting machines are what we have seen in use in Benton County. The second big change is the legislative initiation of early voting in Arkansas. In practice, this innovation has been implemented in several strategic locations around the county, providing opportunities during the two weeks prior to the regular election for voters to cast an early ballot. Although paper ballots may be available on request, the electronic voting machines have become the nearly universal provision for submitting a voter's choices during early voting.

What is the effect of money on politics?

If people ever had questions about the influence of money on America's election process, this year should provide some in-depth observations -- but not necessarily any solutions. From one billionaire candidate using his own financial resources in campaigning to the political contributions given to Arkansas Supreme Court Justices, we may get a glimpse of how money actually contributes to the inability of our leaders in Washington to look out for those who vote them into office.

posted: 03/02/2016 5 a.m.

For those of us overwhelmed at the amount of money being spent on television ads by outside interests in the contest for Arkansas' Supreme Court Chief Justice, the following information may be interesting. It seems every time you turn the television on there is an ad pointing out the campaign contributions given to Justice Courtney Goodson. The ads, containing the list of contributions and contributors, all seem to be coming out of the Judicial Crisis Network in Washington, D.C. The campaign contributions being referred to come primarily from out of state donors. Perhaps a little like the kettle calling the pot black or however that old saying goes. What it really points out is there is an enormous amount of money involved in our electoral process.
