My CBA :P

So As usual there was big essay assignment and I am gonna put this one up as well

 

The greatest inventor of our generation, Steve Jobs, loved to quote Pablo Pisscaso, who said, “Good artists copy, but great artists steal. ” Although this mantra might have helped Jobs become successful, it’s still important to try to respect others’ patent rights. Most governments around the world have patent offices to approve new inventions and other advancements in many areas to protect the inventor’s right. This power, in the US, lies within congress, and it has yet to update these outdated laws. In the last few years, it has become clear that these out dated Patent laws are festering the progress of technology. These so-called Patent Trolling sue other companies for settlement money or elimination of competition. Such vile acts should be addressed by reformations of the Patent laws.
Despite the ubiquity of electronic devices, patent office and many law makers seem distant from the everyday technologies used by average users. If anyone with common sense were to goes through the library of Patents approved, it is clear that some if not most patents are puerile. In fact, some patents can be made from technologies that exist, then to be used to sue the emerging industry. In another recent Patent Troll, fark.com was sued by Gooseberry Natural Resources which claimed a patent for “emailing new releases”. Of course fark.com wasn’t the only one sued. Yahoo, MSN, Reddit and other services were sued as well. Although these bigger corporations settled out of the case, fark.com was able to fight as one major flaw. The definition of news in the mainstream media is Press Release. fark.com was fortunate enough to win the case, but the patent troll, Gooseberry Natural Resources, have “won” some of the cases. Because most if not all cases are non-disclosure agreement, the Patent Troll claim that it has won the case.
This under-appreciated power of congress has became a problem to the hi-tech industry. Patent Trolling is a tactic in which corporations with, large library of Patents, sue others to eliminate competition by claiming patent infringement. Within the last few years, there has been an increasing number of law suits between technology companies, most of them started by Apple. These law suits happen because companies are approved of patents that can be interpreted too widely or simply ridiculous. A Taiwanese company, called HTC, was sued by Apple recently for infringement of 20 different patents. Although most of these claims were dropped, one patent, so-called “data tap”, which allows the user to tap a phone number, email, or other data to perform an action, also known as hyperlink on the Internet. As a result HTC was banned from importing of most of their devices including their new upcoming line of products. HTC has reprogrammed the user interface and this new program has been approved by the U.S. Customs. In the end, all Apple was able to do was render the experience worse for the user. Quite frankly the damage done by the Patent trolls are around $500 Billion to the U.S. economy, this is way more then terrorist costs which is around $128 Billion.
Although some progress were made to rewrite small part of Patent laws, the important goal is to re-examine current patent library to clean out of patents that are simply not creative enough or misused by the patent trolls such as Apple, and Gooseberry Natural Resources. They are using these patents to kill innovation. It might seem simple reformation of the laws might do the job, but the problem with reformation of patent laws is that two major innovative industries Medical and Hi-Tech are at odds. Medical industry wants more protection for the inventors, while Hi-Tech industry want the protection for the producers. This allows the Patent trolls to sit between the lines and sue companies out of existence as Apple’s former CEO Steve Jobs wanted to do.
These patent law suits create negative cycles. People end up having to pay more expensive hi-tech devices because of licensing fees; as fewer people buy these devices, less innovation can happen without the resources. In the end, the customers have to pay for devices that will be expensive and less innovative just like the case of HTC Vs. Apple. “Don’t negotiate with terrorists; patent trolls have done more damage to the United States economy than any domestic or foreign terrorist organization in history, every year.” (Drew Curtis) We have come so far within the last few years the speed of the innovations was too fast of the outdated laws to catch up. It is now that law makers should sit down and figure out new laws for the new era.

Think about you

I find subconscious to be more powerful than any other psychological part of our human mind.

Sometimes we have those moment when we are going somewhere and don’t really know why we are going to that place. In reality, we know where we have to go, school, work, or home, we just consciously don’t want to, but the repeated processes of going somewhere has turned us into automatic robots going really no where.

If we are robots without much thought in life, aren’t we no different then a slave of our mind?

If out mind dictates where we want to be at certain time, then do we have free will at all?

Religion would say that We all have purpose on this horrid land, but if we aren’t allowed to think for ourselves by us. We don’t know what we are doing, and we don’t have much to offer the world.

As much as I hate to quote clichés “We all have something to offer the world”

but there is a crucial part that no one acknowledges or implied to only the people who knows, “Before we offer something to the world, we must think for ourselves” never to back down when people tell you are wrong, at the end of the day you can go back.

Never follow but lead your own life

Devil out 🙂

Update on Turnitin.com

 

So if you remember this post

https://drluciferz.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/black-boy-essay/

I posted my essay on her before submitting my essay on Turnitin.com to test its legitimacy
I don’t really have problem with the service but with budget cuts in school I believe my school is wasting money with the service.

The service depend on user submission and search results online.

Well, by doing this weird experiment, I was able to conclude that turnitin.com’s algorithms are not wrong?

This is a service many school pays a lot to catch plagiarism. A student just simulated plagiarism yet I haven’t been caught?? I wonder how many kids got away plagiarizing.

This clearly shows that those who got caught are just unlucky ppl…

I don’t know what to say any more aside from I should probably let school, turnitin.com and other places know my findings.

What is your opinion on this ridiculous experiment??

Black Boy Essay?

Hellos

I occasionally post my school essays here and here is my recent one with Book called Black Boy by Richard Wright

I have two reasons for this post

  1. I havent posted anything in a while
  2. I want to see if Turnitin.com actually works (I think its BS)

Here we go!!!

    Everyone should “try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value” as Albert Einstein encouraged us to do, but that isn’t always easy for a black boy living in the South in the 1920’s? Richard Wright certainly did. In his autobiography, Black Boy, Richard goes through many hardships such as the heart attack of his mother and his move to Memphis that shapes him into the man he becomes. Although countless hardships hit Richard, only a few truly significant events turn Richard into the man of value that Einstein believes to be the man of true success.

    At an early age, Richard starts developing into better man. When Richard is seven years old, his ill mother had a heart attack. At such a young age, such an event can be a permanent shock to a child, especially when no one assumes the father figure role. However, Richard responds to this situation by becoming a young responsible young man. “[He] decided to sell [his] dog Betsy and buy some food”(pg. 69). Richard later worked for white families, and still managed to become valedictorian of his class despite his busy schedule. Adjusting to this new role at such a young age was hard for Richard, but it makes him a better person.

    Richard, after his graduation, gets tired of his life in Jackson, with harsh segregation, runs away to Memphis to escape the racism. Here he learns that segregation still exists, but he works harder to bring his mother to Memphis. “[He] saved each penny [he] came by, living on a pint of milk and two sweet rolls for breakfast, a hamburger and peanuts for lunch, and a can of beans“(pg. 226) Richard further develops his ability to become independent and responsible even in different environments.
After trial and error, Richard saves enough money to bring His mother and his brother to joins Richard in Memphis. Soon after Aunt Maggie also moves to Memphis after her husband who has abandoned her. Richard, as the oldest man in this broken family, takes responsibility and starts raising money to move to Chicago. They soon realize that they will never be able to reach Chicago at the rate they are saving up, decide to send Richard and Aunt Maggie. At such age Richard is able to handle such huge responsibilities as a father figure of his family.

    Richard’s level of responsibility is hard to find. Throughout his teen years, Richard, instead of giving up on his life, was able to create each obstacle into positive upbringing and becomes responsible young men. He was able to take care of not only himself but also his family members.

Hope you enjoyed it 🙂

Hey Mr. Lowery Am I gonna get in trouble for this??

My essay I promised

Since the beginning of written history religion has been around to infulence us in many different ways. Some good but some bad. We led many wars and rejected many people. Religion has always been useful for keeping people moral, but in this era is it really necessary? I believe not. We have been living long enough to determined what is right and wrong without a call from GOD.
Sin, a big word in religion especially Christianity, but the sins described in Bible relevant to our century? The on going debate of gay marriage is an silly debate which Christians are losing. But if we were to Follow Christian belief into our laws then I should be condone to death for being rebellious to my parents. Now is that one of debate Christians sparked. No! And many either doesn’t know, or does not wish to talk about this part of Bible.
Religion has created violence within our society in the form of most destructive way, War. The crusaders were a group of soldiers who had on goal and one Gail only, to take back the holy land from Muslims in the area, but the war took a different turn as the soldiers became greedy. They started to take money and other valuables from the citizens of surrounding cities. Second expedition wasn’t any better as this time the soldiers were only thinking about stealing then to rescue the holy city.
Some can argue that Crusaders weren’t really Christians. Well then in more modern time, there is a war that has been going for few years. The war in Afghanistan had started due to many terrorist attacks started by Osama bin Laden, leader of Al-Qadea, which practices Sunni Islamist, a form of Muslim. Many say that war was started so that US can steal Oil off of the Middle east country but I believe there was unknown message that war started due to Religious differences.
Whether is simple as bashing some kid for being different or starting a full on war. Religion has become useless device of the past. It is no longer a double edged sword, it has dulled down to single edged sword. A one that has led millions of out family into Death. Religions has tried to say relevant into our life by taking different forms. Just Christianity itself has taken 100,000 different branches. Is it really necessary to have one? We dont, We want it for our pleasures, And even some pious people has realized that, people such as Flannery O`Connor shows this in her book A Good Man is Hard to Find.

Here is the essay that I promised a week ago sorry I didn’t have time to upload it I have been seeing some visits Keep coming even though I might might not be posting regularly
And tell ur friends about it

BTW I wrote this during A sermon Lol I know funny How I got the idea to do this inside the church lol
