Word of the week: Cacography

You’d think I’d have known this word for years and years instead of for just a few days, because cacography describes a wide swath of brand naming. Also, I like -graphy words in general (choreography, biography, typography, cinematography, lexicography, orography), all of which have some connection to writing, which is what the Greek root graphein signifies. And I’m also (immaturely) drawn to words beginning with cac- and kak-, my very favorite being kakistocracy. The front part of those cac- a...

POP! Rocks – Boy Bands, apparently

Amongst their Toy Fair announcements, Funko has announced three new POP! Rocks Series featuring three of the top boy bands (that's an oxymoron, if I've ever heard one). Travel back to the mid-90's - or not - to pick up the POP! ROCKS - *NSYNC lineup, featuring Justin, JC, Joey, Lance, and Chris. Equally as bad, and equally as mid-90's, there's the  POP!

Myth: Benevolent Government & Societal Perfection

Opinion To put it simply, I like my America sloppy, disorganized, unpredictable, with no guarantees,,, that is real freedom! New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- Ultimately, each individual must depend on him or herself for sustenance and for providing for one's needs, wants, and desires, and happiness. That is as it should be. This requires less Government control over the citizenry–as little control as possible–not more control over the citizenry. Government, whatever its configuration is not benig...

5 GHz Wi-Fi Isn’t Always Better Than 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi

Casezy idea/Shutterstock.com Are you having trouble with your Wi-Fi connection? Try using 2.4 GHz instead of 5 GHz. Sure, 5 GHz Wi-Fi is newer, faster, and less congested—but it has a weakness. 2.4 GHz is better at covering large areas and penetrating through solid objects. 5 GHz vs. 2.4 GHz: What’s the Difference? Wi-Fi can run on two different “bands” of radio frequency: 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz. 5 GHz Wi-Fi went mainstream with 802.11n—now known as Wi-Fi 4—which was introduced back in 2009. ...

Review | More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

My online book group does a Secret Santa exchange every year, and this last year mine knocked it out of the park. She sent me a copy of Brigid Kemmerer's  along with the most creative accompanying letter and series of clues and mementos tied to a fictional relationship not even wholly of this world. It tied in perfectly with the book and, once I read it, her creativity and extra mile effort meant that much more. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and immediately sought out the companion book feat...
