      Everything Zen

      Could there possibly be anyone crazy enough to not like the word “free� Who can even think of a single negative connotation of the word? Just a few ideas that come to mind are freedom of speech, freedom of religion, free items, or buy one get one free sales. Whether we are talking about your constitutional rights or free doughnuts, these things should make you smile. So why aren’t there more freedoms within our computing environments? With so many freedoms in our country, we should not be restricted with the use of the software we own.
      There is a growing amount of free software supported by established open source groups. The term free software or open source software is a matter of liberty, not price. In other words, open source is more comparable to free speech than to free doughnuts. Probably the most established open source group is known as GNU; which stands for Gnu Not Unix. The GNU project was founded with the goal of putting a cooperative spirit into the computing community. Free software is made for the purpose of helping the computer community, not to make a profit. Most of the software we use, such as Windows, is proprietary software made for profit. Open source software is developed by developers and is compatible with other open source software made by other developers. With proprietary software you have no choice but to be a loyal customer to one group of developers. Open source can freely be modified to fit any need on any platform. The majority of free software is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL) which is composed of four parts.
      • The freedom to run the program, for any purpose
      • The freedom to study how the program works, and change it to make it do what you wish.
      • The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor
      • The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements (and modified versions in general) to the public, so that the whole community benefits

      If less restrictive licenses and community development does not interest you then hopefully the savings of open source software will. Think about how many office and home computers are in daily operation. Almost all of these computers use proprietary software and operating systems, these licensing fees can add up; especially for companies installing software across multiple systems. One of the largest businesses is the world is the United States Government which depends on millions of computers for daily tasks. There are multiple open source systems that meet federal security requirements but there is still endless debate about Government agencies adapting to open source. In summary, let’s say a business owner needs to install software on 10 different computers. With open source software the owner purchases the software once, and installs it on all 10 computers. With proprietary / commercial software, like Windows, the owner will need to buy licenses for every computer.
      Not only is open source software cheaper, it has been proven time and again to be more reliable, and there are many reasons to support it. Free software has the whole community involved, from the developers to the users. Users not only report bugs, they are actually allowed to fix them. When users are able to help develop this software and publish fixes it makes a faster support system. When you purchase a license on proprietary software, you are dependent on that one developer to publish fixes and new features, leading to more costs for that company. While open source software can be updated with fixes and new features by multiple developers, not just one. It can originally be developed by one group, tweaked by another, enhanced by yet another group and finally perfected to fit the end user’s needs. The bottom line is cooperative computing is what makes the software so reliable.
      As far as adaptability goes, open source software is unmatched. Chances are, if you own a cell phone, it is using open source software. If you’re on the internet web sites such as Yahoo, Amazon, Google, or CNN they all run on free open source software on their servers. Aside from how many companies find various uses for open source, another key is the ability to modify the program. Let’s say a user is in a situation where the software must be modified to meet the user’s needs - open source becomes the only option. If a user modifies non open sources software they are likely to get arrested. Modifying and even viewing commercially licensed software’s code goes against the user license and is a serious federal crime. Open source software developers promote users to modify the software to meet any need the user has, making it the most adaptable software available.
      We have come a long way in the 15 years since the beginning of the GNU project and free software movement. In the early 80’s consumer computers only had proprietary software with restrictive licenses. You were not able to share software freely with other users; basically, you were bound by the many obstacles of the original developers. It has taken hundreds of programmers (some being volunteers) to get free software where it is today. But the future does not sit still; we need to realize the importance open source software has on development. Commercial licenses and proprietary software limit our abilities as computer users. Be aware of your freedoms and give a second thought before handing your freedoms and money over to big commercial companies.

      When the whole world lets you down
      And there's nowhere for you to turn
      Cause all of your best friends let you down-own-own
      And you tried to accumulate
      But the world is full of hate
      So all of your best thoughts, just adrift through space

      I think it would make my day if every one I talked to could just go through with what they said they where going to do, honestly why do people try to make plans when they cant come through.

      Just listening to some music
      and this came on shuffle
      seriously just read the lyrics

      Hey, dont miss out on what youre passing
      Youre missing the hootah
      Of the funky buddha
      Eluder
      Of your fucked-up styles, I get wicked
      So come on as cypress starts to kick it
      cause were like the outlaws stridin
      While suckers are hidin
      Jump behind the bush when you see me drivin
      By
      Hanging out the window
      With my magnum taking out some putos
      Acting kind of loco
      Im just another local
      Kid from the street getting paid from my vocals

      Here is something you cant understand
      How I could just kill a man
      Here is something you cant understand
      How I could just kill a man

      Here is something you cant understand
      How I could just kill a man
      Here is something you cant understand
      How I could just kill a man

      Here is something you cant understand

      Im ignoring all the dumb shit
      Yo, because nothing is coming from it
      Im not gonna waste no time fuckin around my gat straight humming
      Hummin, coming at ya
      Yeah ya know I had to gatt ya
      Time for some action
      Just a fraction of friction
      I got the clearance
      To run the interference
      Into your satellite
      Shining a battle light
      Sen got the gatt and I know that hell gatt you right
      Heres an example
      Just a little sample
      How I could just kill a man
      One-time tried to come in my home
      Take my chrome
      I said, yo, its on!
      Take cover son or youre assed-out
      How do you like my chrome then I watched the rookie pass out
      Didnt have to blast him but I did anyway
      That young punk had to pay
      So I just killed a man

      Here is something you cant understand
      How I could just kill a man
      Here is something you cant understand

      Here is something you cant understand

      Its gonna be a long time before I finish
      One of the many missions that I had to establish
      To lite
      My spliff ignite
      You with insight
      So if you aint down, bullshit!
      Say some punk tried to get you for your auto
      Would you call the one-time and play the role model?
      No! I think youll play like a thug
      Next you hear the shot of a magnum slug
      Humming coming at ya
      Yeah ya know Im gonna gatt ya!
      How you know where Im at when you havent been where Ive been?
      Understand where Im coming from
      When youre up on the hill in your big home
      Im out here risking my dome
      Just for a bucket
      Or a fast duck it
      Just to stay alive, yo I got to say fuck it!

      Here is something you cant understand
      How I could just kill a man

      This election I am going with Ron Paul if you want to read about him - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Paul

      I really agree with him on a lot and like how he wants to take power away from federal and give it to state

      And with Colorado's current amendment 44 that would be sweet en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorado_Amendment_44_%282006%29

      Its not just that though if you listen to his plan with the debt and his thoughts on everything.

    • queenspammy

      11 years ago

      You're going to hate my stance.....
      Pretty much, as long as people can be responsible I'm all for them, but sometimes their judgment can get impaired causing bad things to happen (much like a drunk person).
      But personally I've never tried it and really souldn't, not with the career I want. Plus my metabolism is really really slow, so it would take me forever for it to affect me, then would take a while for it to leave my body.

    • queenspammy

      11 years ago

      He never used the term ego loss, but remembering dates when under any influence that you can't remember when you are sober is a perfect example of state-dependent memory. Pretty much what you learn when in a certain state can only be fully remembered in that state. So if you study for a test while drunk, you may as well take it drunk (that is how some people pass the drunk driving tests that cops give. They get drunk then practice.)

      I really like the way my teacher tells us this info. It's really interesting and not biased at all. One of the reasons why I love my major! Some things you can learn are just so interesting!

    • queenspammy

      11 years ago

      (Stolen from my notes, bold is the translation to what it means)

      The accepted viewpoint is that marijuana impairs STM and encoding into LTM. So you have a harder time when you take MJ remembering things for a long period of time.

      Rastafarian-- children are sometimes introduced to marijuana at a young age and in a sacramental fashion.

      Children exposed to marijuana from an early age show improvements in performance under the influence of marijuana. There are no other known groups that demonstrate such improvements. So because some Rastafarian children are introduced to MJ at such a young age, their memory shows improvements while under the influence.

      THC in rats may actually stimulate neuronal growth in the hippocampus.The hippocampus is what is responsible for turning short-term memories(STM) into long-term memories(LTM), so some rats show this part of their brain improving when THC is given to them.

      The following is just the side effects of MJ in my teachers words
      1. Sensory Perception
      Seeing patterns or forms in visual material that are not normally observed
      Hearing more subtle changes in sound
      Heightened sense of touch, taste, and smell
      Increased enjoyment of food ("munchies")
      Increased sensuality; intensified orgasms

      In actuality, signal detection performance goes down. Some theorize that it's because sensation is somewhat deadened or blocked; others surmise is that attention changes in such a way that people have a hard time pulling their attention away from something on which they're focused. Analogy: concentrative meditators focus on one thing to the exclusion of all else. So people have a hard time picking up on suttle cues in their environment. While under the influence someone may not hear a car alarm go off in the distance when someone who isn't under the influece would. They don't know if it's just because the person can't hear it or if because that person is so focused on one thing they are blocking everything else out

      2. Time perception

      Time seems to pass more slowly

      3. Sense of identity

      Many individuals report losing their sense of self


      4. Memory

      Rapidly forgetting conversations, read information, and one's general train of thought

      Marijuana disrupts STM and also the ability of information to be transferred from STM to LTM

      5. Thinking

      New insights; increase in originality
      More accepting of contradictions (reminiscent of "trance logic")
      Getting lost in thought or fantasy, and being immersed in the present (reminiscent of "absorption" and "imaginative involvement")

      6. Split consciousness

      Both experiencing the high and observing objectively what is happening.

      Crawford- Looked at response to the same suggestion used in hypnosis under two conditions: a) the influence of marijuana; and b) hypnosis. The degree of response was about the same. For example, if someone was under hypnosis, if they were told they couldn't bend their arm they wouldn't be able to because of the power of suggestion while under hypnosis. The same results were found in people under the influence of MJ. If something was suggested to them they would react the same as if they were hypnotized

      7. Emotion

      Feeling more childlike, more open to experience, more filled with awe and wonder

      8. Self-control
      Physical relaxation, letting go
      Accepting whatever happens (sense of surrender)
      reminiscent of the classic suggestion effect, in which people have the perception of involuntariness

      THC is fat soluble and gets absorbed in practically all of the body's tissues; it also leaves the body slowly

    • queenspammy

      11 years ago

      Pretty much your short-term memory is filled with memories that last for only 30 seconds unless you rehearse them or try to remember it in a deeper way (aka, make it more meaningful to you) Once you make it either meaningful or rehearse it enough it gets stored in long-term memory which lasts for a much longer amount of time. Short-term memory helps you remember that phone number someone just said so you can quickly dial it, long-term memory helps you remember names, places, and events for years to come.

      Sure thing. We're always talking about how people can't turn short-term into long-term memories unless they use it at a young age, then their long-term memory improves. Stuff like that.
