ECG/EKG Heart Monitoring On ANY Apple Watch With AliveCor’s ‘KardiaBand’.

This is pretty clever BUT, at present, too limited in that it ONLY works with Apple Watches & exploitatively priced!

It is definitely worth $99 and I say that as somebody who just a month ago bought a $99 ‘KardiMobile‘ that works with BOTH Android & Apple and does NOT require the $99 Premium Membership.

IF they make one that is Garmin compatible and does NOT require the Premium Membership I will get one — as long as the strap is not too ugly.

Great idea. Poor execution.

I have noticed this with AliveCor. They seem DESPERATE for cash. Continually trying to get you to buy membership.

I am not sure what the PATENT situation is with this technology. I would LOVE to see others enter the arena and make an effort to work with Garmin.

Pope Francis, In His Letter To Cardinal-Reprobate Wuerl, Confirms He Is A DEEPLY FLAWED Man.

Please, please CLICK and read.

Pope Francis is STUPID, evil, headstrong & shameless.

He is, without doubt, the WORST pope in 50-years. While there is a lot of competition he will go down in history as one of the top 20 worst popes ever.

This letter to Wuerl was reprehensible. It is a resounding SLAP in the face to all the victims of Catholic clergy sex crimes. He glorifies a man who aided and abetted child sex molesters.

This pope does NOT care. He has become a megalomaniac. He is a disgrace.

“The Circus” On PBS “American Experience” Is Outstanding & Fascinating.

by Anura Guruge

Click to access the PBS homepage for this outstanding show.

If you are even a semi-regular to this blog you will know that I am an out-and-out circus buff. We try to go to at least one real circus each year and I have been going to circuses, all over the world, all my life — including seeing the legendary ‘Moscow Circus‘ in Moscow.

So, when I saw the trailers for this show I made sure to record them. So, glad I did. WOW. Outstanding. Very well done — and I especially like how they can now animate still photographs to bring them MORE to life. Plus, some of the still black-and-white portraits from the late 1800s and early 1900s are just superb.

I had read P.T. Barnum’s book, earlier this year, after I had gone to see “The Greatest Showman“. So, I knew a fair bit about Barnum though his book concludes before he really got into the circus business — and well before he partnered with Bailey.

This show took me to a whole new depth of understanding. I would like to find out more. Intriguing story. I, however, to my dismay, can’t find a book that goes with this show.
