Car Hacking The New Threat

Car hacking is not something we ever thought we would have to worry about.  Car hacking is the new threat as technology advances. Automakers are now finding themselves having to prepare to protect your automotive from cyber attacks. The threat is real and could get more serious as the future advances into driver-less cars begin talking with one another. Imagine hackers infiltrating a car through a  infotainment system before taking control of the car's driving features opening a new door to auto theft.

Car hacking allows them to shut down your security features and take over the basic driving functions. Basically, car hacking would allow car hackers to hack into a moving vehicle on the highway. As automobiles become more automated, the threat becomes more real.

Another Government Shut Down Possible In the Next 7 Days

2017 may be a new year, but it is the same old politics. Congress is looking at another shut down by January 19th, if they do not come to an agreement on a budget plan and the Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program, Military spending and building a wall on the Mexican border. 

A shutdown will happen when the government fails to sign 12 appropriate bills into law by the deadline.

Members of Congress can gives themselves an extension to prevent a shutdown. However, they are not going to agree on anything they are already disagreeing on. Why give themselves an extension? They are basically getting a paid vacation when Congress shuts down. 

Non essential government employees such as national parks, monuments, and etc. will be sent home without pay until an agreement is reached while politicians still get paid.

Trump has said, a government shut down could be useful for him. However, the democrats could be taking the blame for a broken government if congress does not come to a decision and are faced with a shut down.

NFL National Anthem Protests

The NFL players protesting during a game is totally inappropriate. The players should be penalized for protesting on national television before a game. The players are payed to play football not to express their political view on national television. Football is a business and people pay a lot of money to watch them play and they are not there to make a statement.

If a football player has a problem with standing and respecting our national anthem and our flag then he should be fired and banned from the NFL. He is representing the United States out on the field and the NFL and should be expected to uphold a certain set of guidelines and if he is not happy with that then go find another job.

Too many of these football players think they are irreplaceable and the fact is they are wrong about that. There is a new rising star every year ready to fill their shoes. It is time for the fans to stand up and pull out their money to make a statement.

Direct TV is offering refunds to NFL Sunday Tickets to wake players protesting the national anthem. Do not allow the NFL to bring politics into football.

"According to the Wall Street Journal, several customer service representatives from DirecTV revealed that the company is willing to provide refunds to some customers who “cite players’ national anthem protests as the reason” for wanting to cancel."

Stories Of Inspiration of Hurricane Harvey

Today's society  seems to be in a constant race battle. Then Hurricane Harvey comes along and humanity shines. For a few short weeks, you longer hear about the protests or the race battle on social media.

Out of the tragedy and chaos Hurricane Harvey, stories of inspiration and hope is born. People forming human chains to save one another and doing whatever is necessary to help one another.  It is a sad thought to think that it has taken something like Hurricane Harvey to distract Americans from their race war they are having on social media and across America since the presidential election of President Obama and that has continued with the election President Trump to unite Americans.

In reality, such a small percentage of the population elected their president of choice based on race. Presidential elections historically have been about change. These past two presidential elections have been about a country in need of desperate change. When people are heading to the poles, the majority of Americans have their own agenda in mind. Division of the races is usually not on the top of the list when they are heading to the poles.

Americans have proven just how compassionate we can be towards one another and our country is not divided among the races as much as some people would like to believe. Here are just a few of the many stories of inspiration of Hurricane Harvey. These are the real Americans of America.

U.S. Doctors Contributing to Narcotic Drug Addiction

A recent visit to the oral surgeon with my teenage son to have his wisdom teeth abstracted sparked some concern about how over prescribed narcotic pain killers are to adults and teens. Especially, to youth under the age of 18 for non-serious surgical procedures.

Almost everyone can say they know someone who is addicted prescription pain medication or who has overdosed from prescription pain medication. Prescription pain medication addiction is an epidemic sweeping across the United States and have caused more overdose deaths than overdose deaths to heroin and cocaine combined.

I have always been against the use of highly addictive narcotic pain killers except while under closely monitored situations and only in as needed cases to control intense pain for patients. In my opinion, the production of hydrocodone should be stopped. It has become a street drug and many patients addicted to hydrocodone exaggerate their pain levels in order to get their hands on the drug. Doctors are just too willing to prescribe the drug to addicts. However, 99% of doctors have abused the federally recommended 3 days dosage limit. Some doctors exceed the limit by prescribing month long dosages. Insurance companies contribute to the problem of abuse by making it the most affordable opiate for insurance coverage and pharmaceutical companies issuing coupons similar to this one below.

Despite the warning labels and federal recommendations, doctors put hydrocodone and other highly addictive narcotics in the hands of teens and adults every day leading to addiction. Even after requiring the pharmacies to fill out forms for narcotic prescription drugs is not slowing down the doctors from over prescribing prescription drugs if no one is monitoring the frequency the drug is being prescribed.

According to the Health: Chronic Pain
"Misinformation particularly seems to be at play when it comes to tackling back pain and dental pain. While more than 70 percent and 55 percent of doctors say they prescribe narcotic painkillers for back pain and dental pain, respectively, these drugs are not considered the ideal treatment for either condition, according to the safety council."

Hydrocodone (Zohydro ER) is the number one most over prescribed prescription narcotic pain killer. Hydrocodone is the number one abused prescription drug by adults and our youth. According to the Department of Health and Family Services, while other forms of drug addiction has lowered nationwide. Non-medical use of Vicodin has increased at increasingly high rates among our youth. Nearly 2 million individuals suffer from Vicodin addition.
