This is glorious and even thought it doesn’t fit in the range of all the paranormal & science, I MUST share

It works like this: You tell Kitestring that you’re in a dangerous place or situation, and give it a time frame of when to check in on you. If you don’t reply back when it checks your status, it’ll alert your emergency contacts with a custom message you set up.

It doesn’t require you to touch anything (like bSafe) or shake your phone (like Nirbhaya) to send the distress signal. Kitestring is smarter, because it doesn’t need an action to alert people, it needsΒ inaction.

Princeton Concludes What Kind of Government America Really Has, and It’s Not a Democracy | PolicyMicΒ 

The news:Β AΒ new scientific studyΒ from Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page has finally put some science behind the recently popular argument thatΒ the United States isn’t a democracy any more. And they’ve found that in fact, America is basically an oligarchy.

An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military.

For their study, Gilens and Page compiled data from roughly 1,800 different policy initiatives in the years between 1981 and 2002. They then compared those policy changes with the expressed opinion of the United State public. Comparing the preferences of the average American at the 50th percentile of income to what those Americans at the 90th percentile preferred, as well as the opinions of major lobbying or business groups, the researchers found out that the government followed the directives set forth by the latter two much more often.

It’s beyond alarming.Β As Gilens and Page write, β€œthe preferences of the average American appear toΒ have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” In other words, their statistics sayΒ your opinion literally does not matter.

ThatΒ might explain whyΒ mandatory background checks on gun sales supported byΒ 83% to 91%Β of Americans aren’t in place, or why Congress has taken no action on greenhouse gas emissions even when such legislation is supported byΒ the vast majorityΒ of citizens.

This problem has been steadily escalating for four decades. While there are some limitations to their data set, economists Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez constructed income statistics based on IRS data that go back to 1913. They found that the gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us is much bigger than you would think…
