This year Russia started a new effort to destroy the growth of Jehovah’s Witnesses in that country.
Years earlier, 2009, Rusia placed a block on the official web site calle JW.ORG That site has Bible-bashed articles in over 300 languages. The list of languages includs lessor know languages of the former Soviet Union.
The recent action now makes it unlawfull for the believers among Jehovah’s Witnesses to meet together anywahere. Otherwise they will be arrested for having an unlaswfull meeting of an unlawfull gtoup.
This is more to the ban that just about having meetings. It means they can not proeach in public, and some may lose their jobs. It also opens te door for viollnece and harrasment toward individulas who identify thiemslesves as believers.
Some world leaders have denouced theis most recent effort of Tussia to stop a harmless group that do not present any kind of danger to society.
Here is one of many:
US slams Russia for ban on Jehovah’s Witnesses
“The State Department on Wednesday slammed the Russian Supreme Court’s decision to ban Jehovah’s Witnesses from practicing in the country, which considers them an ‘extremist’ group. ” … Last week, Russia’s Supreme Court ruled to uphold a ruling in April that called the Christian group an ‘extremist’ organization.” … ” The leading religion in Russia is the Orthodox Church, which is supported by Russian President Vladimir Putin.”
An appeal was made to the European Court of Human Rights in hpes of getting Russia to stop the ban.

More and more criminals are trying to attack data centers that have important user information and use that to unlawfully take your money.
Do a Google search and find a number of the big banks in the USA and overseas have had data loss. Data loss can be a polite way to say that data was stolen from the bank. So far, the banks and governments have helped resolve the trouble. But too often the criminals do not get apprehended and they go on to try again and again.
What can you do? Be careful about having large amounts of money in just one institution. Avoid credit cards that can be used to drain all the money from your cheeking account.
Some people now prefer to buy a plastic card for a given amount and use it to pay on-line bills or to go shopping. This is safer t than having your checkbook or cash in your purse.
The limited funds plastic cards are not linked to your bank and therefore a thief would only get the value of the card and nothing more. The card does not even have your name on it.
We have had temperatures over 100 F hee. And we are in the foothills!
You may have heard, California is having a bad time with wild fires. After a wet winter the dry grass is not fuel for some bad fires.
From where we live we see a huge cloud of smoke taht looks like a thunderstom, But it is a firestom. We ae several miles from the fire andf the air here is clear, but we smell the smoke. We know some who live out in the rural area taht has lost well over 2,500 acres in a very short time.
The irony of this is that it is only a few miles from Lake Oroville, which had too much water and some heavey damage had been done to the spillway ealier this year. So the state of California is giing to have some really big bills to pay this year.
Some of the land on fie is actually feeral land, not statre land. But the state has to come in and put out the fire.
The majopr TV netwokrs ill have this on the news tomorrow. ABC, NBCc and FOX already have some stories. bBut the fire is not even 30% contained.You will notice there is more tahn just one big fire. There are two or three big fires at this time. In widely differnt places. Really bad fires. Look at this photo.
It is hot. And this is just July!
I will change the IP address ofHelp9pm to test server reliability.
So yu may find lost connection or server not found messages in the next few days. But I will have it back on line soon. You might not even notice.
NBC says the Wiki Leak things reveals a major hacking tool used by CIA.
But now the attention is about who told. The government reaction is al about who told and not about the harm that was done. Here is a quore from the NBC news website:
A MAJOR mole hunt is now underway as the Federal Bureau of Investigation tries to find out how anti-secrecy site WikiLeaks got its hands on alleged CIA hacking tools.
Here’s the link for the Full Story y from NBC.

The battery meter has to be adjusted to keep it accurate.
No, it will not hurt anything if you ignore it. But don’t you want to know how much life is in your battery? Here is the general method.
First, charge the battery fully and then a little more. That way you know it is at 100 per cent full.Next, make a note of the time. Unplug the charger and use your laptop and use it the way you normally do. Do not turn it odd. Just continue to run it on battery until it shuts down by itself. Note how long it took.
With this information you can now calibrate the charge meter of your laptop. Look in your user guide to see how to doit.
For Apple iPad click here. Apple Battery Adjust.
For HP subnotebook here. HP Battery Meter Fix.
For Dell use this link. Dell notebook Battery calibrate.
Also, there are some video son You Tube about battery calibration. Take a look at some of the videos and learn how.

You can skip the ads and look for a video that best describes your mobile device. It is not hard. Take a look.
Impossible? Almost. But some man have done just that. Think about silicon CPU in your computer.
About 30 years ago Intel introduced the 036 CPU for desktop computers and workstations. That tiny slice of silicon had some features as small as one micro meter in width. Can you imagine how small one micro meter is? A human hair is about a 50 micro melter in thickness. Think of a copper wire 50 times smaller.
But now Intel and others make silicon chips with traces as small as 22 nanometers. And they say then can go done to 10 nm and below.
Wikipedia has some articles about how semiconductor chips are made.
Here is the copyrighted an image you will find there:
Next, watch a video on you tube:
How hey make Silicon Wafers and Computer Chips.
That is amazing!
You have already seen this image on TV. It is not a danger to Oroville. Te Alert is over.
Of course, there is a lot of work to do. Government agencies will not allow this condition to repeat itself. The sluice of the spillway will have to be repaired. Meanwhile, some more rain and run odd is coming. Some say the cost of repairs to both spillways may be well over $100 million.
Another note about the impact on recreation. The Lake recreation areas may not be fully operation this summer. Some areas will be closed until all repair work is done.
Many people wonder about t the photo above. It shows the main walkway work as it should. Except But he lower part of the slice is badly damaged and has dumped mud into the Feather River. Federal regulations require the state of California to fix his as soon as possible.
The answer might surprise you. The really do it all the time.
Personally I have had this. An agent will go beyond what it can legally do and ask questions that are not his business. This is a physiological trick to catch you.
This has been documented elsewhere. Here are just a few of the websites where individuals claim the government went to far in an attempt to get more money.
Please notice this post does not say yu should stop paying tax. Not at all. Rather do not let a few greedy people cheat you to promote their own self-interest. Pay you tax. Pay only what you owe.
