Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Chui's "smart doorbell" recognizes faces, greets guests

3 Comments Shares Tweets Stumble Email More +
You've heard of smartphones, smart TVs and even smart bikes. Now a pair of entrepreneurs is introducing a smart doorbell.

The Chui doorbell uses facial recognition to notify a homeowner who is at the door. A custom message can be left for friends or strangers. The homeowner will be notified of who is at the door via email. When the doorbell is connected to a Wi-Fi connected door lock, the homeowner can let the guest in remotely.

It doesn't stop with ringing the door bell -- anything connected to the device via Wi-Fi can be customized. In a demonstration with CBS News the company's co-founders Nezare Chafni and Shaun Moore showed how different light settings can be set for each person, when used with a smart light bulb.

Chafni says that photos taken by Chui are added to the Web application, where a database of visitors are logged, and new devices can be connected to the doorbell. New friends can be added, with custom messages and settings.

Moore says the device can be used with anything that is connected via Wi-Fi in a home, like a fireplace or air conditioner. In the growing market of connected devices, there are many different uses for Chui.

The device was crowdfunded, with a $30,000 goal that reach $45,969. Chui is currently in the final stages of development, with plans for a fall 2014 release date.

Looked like a deer caught in headlines. Half the country had to pick their jaws up off the floor - including me.
It was such a shock that a moderator would say something like that - even if she did admit Romney was right about Obama blaming a video for weeks afterwards. But no one heard that part because they were in such a state of disbelief - including Romney.
It was too late after the moment passed. Obama's remarks egging her on is what made me want to kick the friggin' TV. He sat right there knowing he lied to us about the attack and then acted so smug about having the moderator cover his butt for him during the debate.
It's really very hard for me to accept America has gotten so stupid.
Well Carol the fact is that Obama did refer to the attack as an act of terror as much as you on the right want to deny it. There were more people who were delighted when Mr. Smug climbed out on that limb and had it cut out from under him.

Have the Republicans sponsored any new bills for additional funding for the increased security necessary to make our embassies safer? If Republicans had granted the increased funding necessary to protect our embassies that Hillary begged for would the four Americans killed at Benghazi be alive today?

One of the problems with education for many years has been that the education schools that produce teachers generally attract the bottom of the barrel of high school seniors.
Teachers now make good money & do attract quality students.

Any homeless person can walk into any ER and be treated.
The majority of the homeless reside in the bigger cities. There's at least a half dozen free clinics right here in Orlando.
If the democrats had concentrated more on lowering the costs of health care and compromised with republicans on solutions that were better than what we have now - which is a lawyer's smorgasbord and a tax nightmare - it would have been a lot cheaper just to treat the poor in ERs and free clinics at the taxpayer's expense. We were doing that anyway.
Obamacare is just making more people homeless.
You're missing the point as usual Carol. ERs provide only urgent emergency care. They're not there to provide ongoing care for acute conditions nor are they set up to. Under the ACA people will be able to get wellness visits with their physician without co-pay making it easier to diagnose medical conditions early before they turn into issues that send people to the ER.
We shouldn't need free clinics in this country Carol everyone should have access to the same medical facilities.
How is Obamacare making more people homeless nitwit? A report filed in the August 2009 in The American Journal of Medicine concluded;
"Unless you're a Warren Buffett or Bill Gates, you're one illness away from financial ruin in this country," says lead author Steffie Woolhandler, M.D., of the Harvard Medical School, in Cambridge, Mass. "If an illness is long enough and expensive enough, private insurance offers very little protection against medical bankruptcy, and that's the major finding in our study."
Woolhandler and her colleagues surveyed a random sample of 2,314 people who filed for bankruptcy in early 2007, looked at their court records, and then interviewed more than 1,000 of them.
With guaranteed issue and the removal of arbitrary lifetime caps on treatment, this is less likely to occur.

My wife's position at her company entitles her access to all financial records, concerning pay, taxes, workers comp, sick pay, etc. everything, so she does know. And i know as well, she tells me.
So she blows the CFO.

The exchanges would not necessarily be cheaper than a large corporation's costs but there is no way it would be double.

You are lying.

The VA, yet another government agency in scandal under Obama.
Democrats lie, people die, then the cover up begins.
So typical of the Obama regime.
Since we all know Obama & Democrats hate American patriots this is not surprising. The IRS targeted patriot groups, Hillary & State left patriots to die & BLM and Harry Reid calls them terrorists.
The true terrorists are Democrats & Obama the liar.
You're just waking up to the bureaucratic 'mess' at the VA? It's been like that for a long time before Obama wasn't even elected. Note too that many of the problems at the VA hospitals where service veterans had lengthy difficulties being treated were at VA hospitals in Red States, like Arizona. Non-partisan investigative inspectors also noted that many VA hospitals were just too overwhelmed by the increased numbers of veterans seeking treatment after coming back from George W Bush's Iraq and Afghanistan overseas wars. Why was Bush W not thinking when he cut funding for the Veterans Administration in 2008 to give out instead whopping extended tax cuts to the wealthy 1%?

Didn't I argue that same point once? Now there are numerous splinter groups. That wasn't your position then.
I have always said the destroying the bulk of Al Qaeda's central command left many disjointed groups.

Evidently, you are arguing that we would be better off if all these groups were centrally connected & had better fund raising & capabilities of larger, more sophisticated attacks.

So, we have a consulate in a volatile region that the St Dept failed to provide adequate security for--that is the issue.
I am not lying. It was the logic choice. Difficult to trace numerous splinter groups.
The Consulate wasn't much of a consulate at all but more involved in intelligence gathering.

You morons act like this was a fully staffed mini embassy.

You are lying. Al Qaeda did not decide to decentralize at all. They became that way when the bulk of their leaders were killed or captured.

This is just another examples of how right whiners lie & make up excuses to avoid giving Obama credit for taking out Al Qaeda leadership.

You people are pathetic

Teachers make very good money thanks to being unionized, but they still attract those who "can't", or won't, or have no clue". The reason the NEA violently opposes school vouchers is that at least half of their members would be unemployed in a competitive environment. Of all the professions those students who enter college to become teachers are generally on the lower end of GPA's and in the bottom quartile of SAT scores. Those who actually graduate as teachers generally can be found with mid to low range GPA's after four years of college and business grads who shift to teaching AFTER trying the private sector because they, "felt a calling", are those individuals who were going no place fast or who had been bounced out of management accelerated programs.
The call of good pay, good benefits, three months off every year, and TENURE is too much for some of our less motivated to ignore.
