   Gerty  I've been out of the loop of late. Someone please help: What happened to Megan Kelly? I've tuned in two nights now and she has been replaced by someone else.

Is this the Trump effect?

   Bettijo  I used to be a big fan of Megan Kelly. I was thrilled when she got her own show and I cheered when she got moved to prime time. But now I have lost all respect for her and have not watched her since the presidential debate. Believe it or not, I switch to CNN at 9:00, but go back to FOX at 10:00 for Hennity. I read on a blog that FOX was letting her go because of "unprofessional photographs" of a younger Megan. Don't know and don't care.

   Sternben  " Chaos theory" also known as " butterfly effect", is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change
in one state of a deterministic nonlinear
system can result in large differences in a larger state.
In other words, a butterfly flapping its wings in Texas can cause later a typhoon in the Japanese Sea.

Consider this:
In mid-20th Century America an 18 year old hippie freshman girl in a Honolulu college
has sex with an older Kenyan politician on a student visa,
who has a wife and child in Africa. From this "roll in the hay" comes the
collapse and dissolution of America in the 21st Century.
Makes you a firm believer in the "butterfly effect."

   Iacta alea est  Any website that forces me to view a particular ad just makes me navigate away from it as fast as I can. The mother site is running one of these now for something called "Mobility as a service"....this is more than a pet peeve

   Lonestar Jack  I have started using Whitehat.com Aviator browser and it really speeds up Drudge and any heavy ad sites.
Good to read up on the White Hat company and if you like what they say you can download their free browser and be assured that they do not send your patterns to any ad agencies.

These hosting companies make their money by the "pay per click" method where the Ad Company is billed based on the number of clicks and subsequent visits to their sites. A status bar is at the bottom on many browsers where you can see flashing messages where you can watch the traffic of messages being relayed to various companies, but this can be turned off by the browser preferences.

Notice how the real estate for content has shrunk on the right side to allow for more ads.

One of the other culprits is the increasing usage of Javascript to animate ads, "cutify" sites and control the passing of your data.

   StormCnter  Jack, many years ago (easily 40 ), my company's first manufacturing software was produced and marketed by a company named Whitehat, out of Massachusetts. I wonder...

   Allsogreat  A police officer called the station on his radio.
"I have an interesting case here. An old lady shot her husband for stepping on the floor she just mopped."
"Have you arrested the woman?"
"Not yet. The floor's still wet."

   Fireball27  A lady called in to Rush this morning, and had an interesting point. If Hillary didn't use her e-mail for classified information, what did she use? And where are the notes or transcripts of these meetings? This is going to get good. Will anyone ask the media why they haven't asked these questions?

   Gerty  That's simple (? ). Hillary DID use her e-mail for classified information. Hillary also destroyed any evidence that would prove she did. End of story.

   Tulsa  A Windows update includes the Win 10 upgrade. Every upgrade attempt so far on our pcs has failed.

Now. Before you do what I did below, pls, pls, pls investigate. I found the info on the MS Windows website. I do not want Win. 10 and did not request a copy be reserved.

To stop these attempted upgrades. Go to 'view installed updates' and find 'uninstall updates' which is highlighted at the top of the list...click on that and wait for it to load. Find update KB3035583 and uninstall it. The date of KB3035583 is July 12 or 15. I bout went blind b4 I found it. Uninstall and restart your pc.

Very shortly after you'll see a recommended update...Well guess what..it's KB3035583. HIDE the download.

I was able to get rid of that steenking Win 10 icon by customizing the icons lower right a week or so ago. (select 'hide icon and notifications' ) I was sick of looking at it.

   StormCnter  I have Windows Updates turned off. They are listed but nothing happens unless I say so. I learned a sad lesson a few years ago by installing and then attempting to uninstall a Windows Upgrade Pack. Many of the upgrades change the operating system and cannot be undone. As Tulsa said, be careful with this stuff. I have two PCs and a laptop happily humming on Windows 7 and they will stay there for now.

   RedWhiteBlue  Music that is louder than the spoken word in commercials.
And in another one there's that loud beat going on and you ALSO cannot hear what the heck they are saying. Not that it matters because it's just a commercial , it's just that it's annoying to hear more of the noises/music that SHOULD be in the background. Maybe it's just me....lol. But it's still a pet peeve.

   Carmen  Not just commercials! Maybe it is my age, but I am finding it very difficult to understand what people are saying in series, etc. We find that we are using the closed-caption feature for just about everything now.

   Gerty  No, Miss Carmen, it is not your age!

I am hearing impaired (mildly deaf! ) and use a boat-load of electronic devices to listen to TV, radio and internet. The sound quality from all of these media is horrible! We are experiencing the 'mumbles' generation. It is considered 'cool' to talk sotto voce.
