Voting For Bernie Sanders In South Carolina: What Would Jesus Do?

by Anura Guruge


I hope that this is already been talked about and studied in U.S. seminaries. A great theological conundrum.

One could, and some do, portray Jesus as a socialist (and yes, there is that whole ‘money changers’ thing (which could be equated to railing against Wall Street). I am sure Jesus would agree with most of Bernie’s ambitious social agenda.

But, then comes the thorny issue. Would Jesus vote for a man who does NOT believe in him?

In theory he could. But I think that would be hard even for Jesus. That is why the ‘WWJD‘ question has to be fully thrashed out soon — before the South Carolina Primary on February 27, 2016. [The Republican Primary is a week earlier.]

So wait for this Jesus moment.

Today, Wednesday, February 10, 2016, the day after the
New Hampshire Primary,

Bernie Sanders’ is on Hillary Clinton’s coattails
— just 9 delegates behind, 
per MSNBC.

Hillary = 45  Bernie = 36.

Did You Know That You Can SCAN The Screen Of A Mobile Device — On A Scanner?

by Anura Guruge

Yes, I know that if I can hit the ‘Power’ and one of the volume buttons I could get a screenshot of an Android device. But I have never done it and once I got one I still needed to get it to WordPress (i.e., this blogging platform).

Well a few minutes ago while chatting with a WordPress ‘Happiness Engineer’ about the cropped header on my new Panasonic Lumix ZS100 blog I really wanted a screenshot from my 10.1″ Le Pan so that I could show her what the cropping was like. Occurred to me that I might be able to scan the screen on my scanner! Couldn’t see what real damage it could do. The camera was off so the bright light should not have bothered it. Plus the Le Pan is on its last legs and I will be getting my new 10.6″ Dragon Touch X10 in a FEW minutes! So I tried.

It worked. I did scan in color but it came out b&w. But that was OK. It showed the cropping. So I achieved my goal.

Appears that with the theme I am using, EXPOUND, different types of cropping occurs depending on the size of the end device. On a 6″ header appears FINE with no cropping. On a 10″ the header is cropped! Well, I got around that, but that is another story.

For now the moral of the story is that in a pinch you can get a quick screenshot of a mobile device by scanning the screen on a scanner.

Yes, I know that I could have taken a picture too — with a camera.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 — I Have Created A Blog.

Click to access.

The scheduled for March 26, 2016 availability Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100, that I serendipitously stumbled upon a few days ago, has really piqued my interest. It is basically a smaller version of my semi-beloved Panasonic FZ1000, which I am now using every day (now that I sold my Sony RX100 II).

As is always my wont I am crunching through reviews of the ZS100 at quite the pace. So it occurred to me that I might as well share what I am finding as I go along. IF I end of getting a ZS100, and right now the odds on that appear to be around the 75% mark, I could really start making the blog exciting with my photos.

Since the Sony RX10 II this is the first ‘pre-release’ camera that I have taken this much interest in. So that was another reason to start blogging. I only created it Monday night, February 8, 2016. This is the first time I have spoken about it. BUT it has already had 95 views with 57 already today — and they are coming from all over the World.

So stay tuned. Please do check out the blog. I already have 6 posts.

Yes, I do have a blog for the Panasonic FZ1000 too —
though I will confess I haven’t done much with it yet. Sorry.
