Please stand by…
Occasional, interesting, and random things seen here.
Sometimes nothing to see whatsoever.
A list of websites and programs that I find useful or interesting. Some of them I couldn’t do this website without the aforementioned programs and websites.
Due to drastic changes in life around here, doing a drudgy type front page is just not possible at this time. I will have to resort to more re-blogs and automation.
Just a brief F.Y.I. – I have become a single parent due to the death of my son’s mother. Now would be an excellent time to show any support through donations.
This blog has never been to be about my life, just an outlet for my news junkiness, and artwork. People want to know what they are supporting.
A single parent and this website would be what you are supporting.
Internet costs have gone up and up. I refuse to get cable and I am penalized for not bundling. You know the story.
SuddenUnLink now limits bandwidth usage per month, when I signed up way back when of course it was for unlimited. All that has changed. I have hit my cap 3 months in a row just trying to do this website, provide something interesting for people to see, and represent Central Louisiana.
I make plenty from WordAds to keep the LouisianaWorld.Net, and BattleOfOurTimes.Com domain names registered. I do not make enough to help pay for the costs of any streaming I try to do, anything that affects my bandwidth usage, etc. I do not make any profit whatsoever in the long run.
I just try to provide a wide range of Louisiana News from a wide number of sources, and also news from Pop Culture, Entertainment, Music, Art, Science, Astronomy, Gaming, etc., subjects that I find interesting, amusing, perplexing, informative, chuckle worthy, or make you O_o possibly, at times, many times perhaps. I don’t really like politics, but I try to stomach as much as I can to stay as informed as one who cannot stomach much can be informed about politics.
I am looking at all this garbage anyway, and I might as well tweet it, poke it, thumb it, or something. People like pushing buttons, copying and pasting things, poking things, thumbing things, taking polls, and having as many things spoon fed to them as possible, without a spoon.
I am not responsible for what some people might say on Twitter/Social Media that show up in embeds I use like RebelMouse, or Totally.Me. Hashtags like #Louisiana will sometimes bring up vulgar items into the stream. #Alexandria brings up a lot of stuff from Virginia, and Egypt. I’m waiting for #Tioga to pop up.
#CenLa = Central Louisiana #CenLA = Central Los Angeles
It doesn’t get much more vulgar than that. ;)
It does make for an interesting read.
WordAds help keep LouisianaWorld.Net stay open.

“Sanders and some other experts have dismissed claims that the government would profit “in the billions” from a pandemic. David Perlin specializes in infectious diseases research.
In regards to questions about patenting the Ebola virus, Perlin told theGrio.com the “only reason to do it is for commercial purposes” and to “control the strain” in terms of licensing.
“[EboBun] either has value as a vaccine strain, or it has some other type of commercial value that the CDC would benefit from,” Perlin said.”

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the death of Thomas Duncan and the subsequent spread of the virus to two healthcare workers inside the U.S. has prompted a flurry of questions and – yes, even some conspiracy theories.
For any one looking for it, the internet is filled with speculation that the U.S. government and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will profit from an Ebola pandemic because they have a patent on the virus and potentially a cure.
While it is true that the CDC was given a patent in 2010 for the Ebola Bundibugyo virus (EboBun), the strain that is currently spreading is Zaire Ebola (EBOV).
David Sanders, professor of biological sciences at Purdue University and a leading Ebola researcher, told Newsmax Health it is not all that uncommon for the government to patent microbes developed in their labs.
“The CDC does hold some patents on life forms, but…
