PART 2 Project: Closed Caption, Content Creator Silence Challenge

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

Part 2, of Project: Closed Caption was motivated in part by the first posting/experience.  After editing the closed captions (CC) on my last video I made this video in response.  Since I had the CC experience I started watching the videos with the CC on and noticed how many of those videos had mistakes.

I don’t think many of the content creators give it much thought because the mistakes are there.  From simple grammatical errors to omissions, to adding in text never said.  Very eye-opening.  It bothered me to see it and I wanted to attempt to get others creators to check their CC.

I made a video challenging others to watch and proofread their most viewed video in 5 minutes of total silence.  Not sure if it will work to motivate others to do it but it’s worth a try.  If you read this, please share the video with others and challenge them to the Silence Challenge.  -13

Blank page mayhem is an understatement.  More like total refresh-page, login chaos.  Several weeks ago and last week I tried to login to my WordPress page and this was all I could see.

Screenshot after login.

The image above is a screenshot of what I would see after logins and page refreshes. I’m sure over the time span hundreds of attempts were made. When I would get the page to load, any click would lead to a page like the one shown.  Looks like a WordPress page without anything.  No possible way to use their help because when I was able to click on it, same blank page.

It was maddening.  To make matters worse all I could find online about the same or similar problem was,  “WordPress White Screen of Death” and “professional debug” references.  Uh-oh!  After what seemed to be my ten thousandth attempt to reach a help page I did.

Not directly.  I searched for WordPress help and followed that link.  Finally I’d located a way to contact them for help on the issue.  Sent a note, then, woke up with a keyboard imprint on my face and computer mouse in my hand.  Wow did my neck hurt.  My face did too the keyboard makes a horrible pillow.  Hope I don’t do that again.  Go ahead and laugh its funny.

Awake it was time to work on 3-D, in the physical dimension projects.  Otherwise known as real life.  Now, not an hour after reading “I checked your site and I don’t see blank page, I see stats page, posts, pages and everything is working as Could you please retest after clearing browser’s cache https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache. If you still see the issue then please share screenshot https://en.support.wordpress.com/make-a-screenshot/ so we can check and investigate this further.” here it is.  Another blog about, every day life.  Included all the information in quotations it may help someone else.

A reference is made to a “screenshot” in the reply.  Something I’d normally send to aid in clarifying my problem.  The fact I didn’t send one shows me how sleepy I was.  Followed the suggestion to clear the cache and then logged in and it seems to have worked.  I had to search Apple help to learn how to do it.  Not as easy or detailed a process as when I maintain website information on a Windows based PC compared to the way I have to using Apple.

I’ll have to keep using WordPress to see what happens next.  If the same thing happens I’ll try the suggested remedy and see if it solves the issue.  What an experience it was to see the WordPress basic page layout but nothing else.  The screenshot says it all.

For now I’m here writing and working on catching up.  We’ll see what happens next.  -13

 

PART 2: Psycho in the Mail? Thank you Debbie Wasserman Schultz! Reason number 3 why you should be prepared for —–anything!

More Psycho in the Mail?  This time directly in my email box. The psycho in people seems to be never ending.  It might be escalating and the recent email from Debbie Wasserman Schultz is my indicator.

These anti- American/constitution types, I’m not sure if they’re communist saboteurs, millionaire socialists wannabes or what?  That part doesn’t matter, the part that does is their destructive intentions.  Congress should not be looking for more ways to restrict freedom at all. In any way, shape, or form.  None.  On that note it should be clear I’d never agree to more restrictions on people.  I’m for the opposite, more freedom.  More! Never less!

Never agree to that, more laws restricting Americans.  It’s like this, if you don’t 100% support the U.S. Constitution why are you here?  There are so many other places to live that welcome the commie-socialist mindset.  Don’t let the door hit you in the ass as the saying goes.  Personally, I think these individuals are self destructive and want to create a fight similar in their minds, to the American revolution.  A fight they would by completely unprepared for.  Amazing to watch isn’t it?

With treasonus people like that around thank goodness we’ve had the second amendment to keep firearms in our hands in case they get what they want.  The destruction of America?  Reason number 3 why you should be ready for anything is below.  -13

Project: Closed Caption Words matter, in a world of silence.

Words matter, in a world of silence. What an experience. Talk about an eye-opening, paradigm shift.  Less that three days ago now I was editing a video posted to YouTube.  At some point I somehow turned on the Closed Captions.  Not sure how.  Doesn’t matter. Here is what does.

I was ignoring them. Then I noticed “…morons…” in one of the captions on screen.  I don’t use the word “morons” so that got my curiosity up.  I watched more of the captions and was surprised how inaccurate it could be. That led me to discover that the captions had been automatically generated.  I also discovered that I could edit them to correct the mistakes.

Once I figured out how to make the edits, I thought I’d pick a short video and give it a try. That is when the paradigm shift happened. It was late at night, no sounds in the house or outside.  As I was reading them I was drawn into a world of total silence. Imagining that I could hear nothing and that I depended on the words I’m reading to be accurate.  Not leave anything out.  It would be the only way I would get anything out of, or make sense of the video.

Thinking about that stuck me. Imagine trying to follow along with the video, and have to watch the video and read along but the words you are reading are wrong or missing. It’s like having subtitles in a language you don’t understand. Useless!

It suddenly became a top priority to go back through all of the videos I’ve posted and edit the closed captions. There were so many mistakes. It’s not surprising with all the slang and my accent. I’ll bet that’s why YouTube doesn’t like some of my videos, the auto generated text.

Still not caught up, the project has taken hours and is committed to editing all of our videos with relevant audio. A number of the mistakes are saved below. Some of the best ones aren’t here because I didn’t think of writing this blog until I was a few hours into the project.

Many of them, funny, simple mistakes. Others, complex misinterpretations. Wait until you read them. Some of them will require reading over a few times to comprehend the misquote like this one. “Honey that stools that seat in there is trying to germinate well, okay” – “Okay, that soil, that seed in there is trying to germinate.” The misquote, then the correction. See what I mean?

Read on for a laugh or two, but remember what its like to have to read through it and try to have the same video experience everyone that has hearing does. That was an eye-opening experience, we’ll never again post a video without checking the closed captions. I might make a video to challenge others who post videos to do the same. We’ll see. -13

Facebook, Twitter, bye, bye: Part 4 first lesson, patients, let it fester

This is a follow up to Facebook, Twitter, bye, bye: Part 2 What Happened Next & Facebook, Twitter, bye, bye: Part 3 That didn’t take long did it!

First lesson, be patient. Seems like all we have to do is watch the show the actors will do the rest.

Been a little busy trying to catch up, things take time in the physical, the heat, the morbidly humid Florida heat.  Drenched wet clothes takes all the fun out of it.  Then, the next, what happened next?  More social engineering validation?  Having my doubts about YouTube and am looking for alternates.  There’s only so much time in a day.  The basic message is this, stop trying to control people, have power over them, or it will come back to haunt you.  Censorship is for socialist, communist, fascist, totalitarians, etc. and has no place in the U.S.A.  Can’t wait to see what happens next.  -13

The video has some long sales commercial segments be prepared.

2008 Caravan: Demon Possession or Electrical Issues?

I finally was able to film it!  This has happened to the owner of this 2008 Dodge Caravan (original owner) and myself so many times it’s hard to believe how difficult  it has been to record the event in progress.  It’s all about timing, or the lack of it.

No matter it is here now.  How does one explain this problem to a mechanic accurately?  It really does have to be seen to comprehend what is happening.  Headlight, indicator lights, and turn signals flashing.  Windshield wipers flapping door/window control buttons not working.

Not one mechanic, after diagnostics at several dealerships and independent shops has ever been able to figure it out.  As best as any of us can remember the battery has been changed 12 or so times.  A battery would go bad, get replaced under warranty several times before deciding to try different brands.  Thinking that might help since the shop performing the warranty couldn’t find any problems.

Over time is was proven this didn’t solve the issue at all.  It continues to this day.  The electrical issue featured in the video and battery replacements.  It’s a shame, the van has 250000+ miles on it, the motor is doing well never had an issue.  At this age and milage its not worth pursuing the search for a replacement has been ongoing.  If anyone thinks they have an idea what the issue is we’d sure like to hear from you.  We’re not looking to fix the issue simply understand it better.   -13

Facebook, Twitter, bye, bye: Part 3 That didn’t take long did it!

This is a follow up to Facebook, Twitter, bye, bye: Part 2 What Happened Next.

Didn’t take long for the validation about Twitter and the kind of people who work there.  Got to keep track of these things for accountability.  This is better than my pocket note pad.  All of us can see it.  Someone with time and brains can put it all together.  Found this and it will be more validation than is necessary it’s gets better as he speaks.  Hardcore life facts can be hard to wrap around when the picture becomes clear, you can see it as he progresses.  Felt it right in my heart.  Check out the Twitter-Con and awakenings.  -13

Facebook, Twitter, bye, bye: Part 2 What Happened Next

This is a follow up to Facebook, Twitter, bye, bye. blog.  I thought for sure I had deleted the Twitter account.  Then this happened.

Searching for “marine expeditionary boots” on Google to see what shows up after posting a few blogs and videos on the topic.  This Danner Twitter post is what I found.

There it is in front of me. The reason I started using Twitter. Drive traffic to this blog with hashtags. The issue is the politics, censorship and constant notifications. I figured out the notifications thing but take issue with censorship of any kind. Here I am writing this blog because the search inspired me to do an experiment.

When I clicked on the Danner Post link I realized I still had a Twitter account. That is weird because I was sure it had been deleted. So much for that plan. Anyway that leads me to this experiment with hashtags and Twitter.

All the blogs concerning the boots were posted with two hashtags. I’ll be back in about 24 hours or so and see what happens. -13

Facebook, Twitter, bye, bye.

The Unit13FREMSLT project is on a deletion spree!  Facts: Facebook & Twitter censor information.  Shadow banning if they don’ like you.  That makes them useless as a promotional tool for the promotion of free expression.  It’s a shame they ruined fantastic ideas.  They like many websites want people to login putting personal information at risk.

After watching the history of those companies and the experience of others it seemed clear what was next.  Clean up the risk and take out the trash.  The trash is Facebook, Twitter and other companies run like them.  Delete them.  The risk is all the websites that require login’s.  Those accounts will be deleted unless currently active.

Over time it has become too much to keep track of all the login information and keep it safe.  The amount of maintaince required of any site using messaging/notifications is unbelievable.  Invitations for social media sites are like someone handing me a trash can and pile of notifications and messages to send straight to the trash.  No thanks I don’t have the time.  I also believe if people are really that interested it isn’t that much of a hassle to check the site.  I do it all the time.

Online my time is limited to posting videos, my blog and an email account.  The rest is busy in 3-D real time actually doing things.  Anyone else doing this kind of thing? Cleaning out the tentacles that consume time?  Every time I delete another sites login I feel better.  -13

It went something like this, Commie K. O. ! Instant Karma?

Didn’t I mention this kind of response in the past?  While I was enjoying the air conditioned comfort of my office, this average, everyday American and his friends were out exercising freedom in Portland, OR.  Amazing footage.  From where I’m sitting it looks like he could have shot the thug with the baton in self defense.  That, would have been boring and risked all those people in the background.

Better than that, the freedom-fighter catches a baton strike with one hand and delivers the K.O. punch with the other.  This kind of thing has been going on for a while now but this footage is particularly good.  Watch it and you will know why it was worth watching.  Especially if you enjoy thugs getting what is so well deserved.  It’s all fun and games until somebody gets K.O.’d. Then you call people like me.  “medic!” -13

Psycho in the Mail? Thank you Rand Paul! Reason number 2 why you should be prepared for —–anything!

www.pexels.com

My friend forwarded this to me.  Think my headline is drama, clickbait?  Wait until you read reason number two of why you should be prepared for any eventuality if you live in the United States.  Psychos on a self-destructive ego trip?  Look at Rand Paul trying to use law and his position as a Senator to enforce his religious beliefs on others.  Hum, seems familiar.

 pexels-photo-337904

It is so odd how the religious fanatics feel victimized by another persons private health care choice or any choice that contradicts their belief system.  “In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation’s throat.”  They always act as if they’ve been imposed on by someone else’s choice that had nothing to do with them.

LiveLeak-dot-com-390_1405183753-Protest4_1405183918

Message to the Rand Paul types, all of you are psycho just exactly like those ISIS psychopaths over in the middle east decapitating and hanging people for fun.  Shut your stupid mouths extremist!  You have freedom of religious expression, not enforcement.  I stand in your way, armed if necessary to defend the right of others to choose how they want to live.  What happened to the whole “free man” thing?  Extremists everywhere, thank goodness for the second amendment and rational thinking or we’d all be in serious trouble.

Just because someone has a college degree and has been elected does not mean one should forfeit self-preservation and listen to fools. These religious fanatics are going to get some of us killed if we don’t stop the madness soon.  For further enlightenment, read on, don’t take my word for it.  -13

Text below is contents of email.

“Dear ——, For 44 years, a few unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life. They have invented laws that condemned to painful deaths without trial more than 61 million babies for the crime of being “inconvenient.” In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation’s throat. In the past, many in the pro-life movement have felt limited to protecting a life here and there — passing some limited law to slightly control abortion in the more outrageous cases. But some pro-lifers always seem to tiptoe around the Supreme Court, hoping they won’t be offended. Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over. Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion using the Constitution instead of amending it. That is why it’s so urgent you sign the petition to your Senators and Congressman that I will link to in a moment. Thanks to the results of the last election, you and I are in a better than ever position to force an up-or-down roll call vote on the Life at Conception Act. And your petition will help do just that. Signing the Life at Conception Act petition will help break through the opposition clinging to abortion-on-demand and ultimately win a vote on this life-saving bill to overturn Roe v. Wade. A Life at Conception Act declares unborn children “persons” as defined by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, entitled to legal protection. This is the one thing the Supreme Court admitted in Roe v. Wade that would cause the case for legal abortion to “collapse.” When the Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined “right of privacy” which it “discovered” in so-called “emanations” of “penumbrae” of the Constitution. Of course, as constitutional law, it was a disaster. But never once did the Supreme Court declare abortion itself to be a constitutional right. Instead, the Supreme Court said: “We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins… the judiciary at this point in the development of man’s knowledge is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.” Then the High Court made a key admission: “If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case [i.e., “Roe” who sought an abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.” The fact is, the 14th Amendment couldn’t be clearer: “… nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law.” Furthermore, the 14th Amendment says: “Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.” That’s exactly what a Life at Conception Act would do. But this simple, logical and obviously right legislation will not become law without a fight. And that’s where your help is critical. You see, it will be a tough fight, but I believe with your signed petition it is one we can win. Please click here to sign your petition right away. By turning up the heat through a massive, national, grassroots campaign in this session of Congress, one of two things will happen. If you and other pro-life activists pour on enough pressure, pro-lifers can force politicians from both parties who were elected on pro-life platforms to make good on their promises and ultimately win passage of this bill. But even if a Life at Conception Act doesn’t pass immediately, the public attention will send another crew of radical abortionists down to defeat in the next elections. Either way, the unborn win… unless you do nothing. That’s why the National Pro-Life Alliance is contacting hundreds of thousands of Americans just like you to mobilize a grassroots army to pass a Life at Conception Act. The first thing you must do is sign your petition by clicking here. They are the key ingredient in the National Pro-Life Alliance’s plan to pass a Life at Conception Act. They’ll also organize:

Hard-hitting TV, radio and newspaper ads to be run just before each vote, detailing the horrors of abortion and mobilizing the American people.

Extensive personal lobbying of key members of Congress by rank-and-file National Pro-Life Alliance members and staff.

A series of newspaper columns to be distributed free to all 1,387 daily newspapers now published in the United States.

An extensive email, direct mail and telephone campaign to generate at least one million petitions to Congress like the one linked to in this letter.

Of course, to do all this will take a lot of money. Just to email and mail the letters necessary to produce one million petitions will cost at least $460,000. Newspaper, TV and radio are even more expensive. But I’m sure you’ll agree pro-lifers cannot just sit by watching the slaughter continue. The National Pro-Life Alliance’s goal is to deliver one million petitions to the House and Senate in support of a Life at Conception Act. When the bill comes up for a vote in Congress, it is crucial to have the full weight of an informed public backing the pro-life position. I feel confident that the folks at the National Pro-Life Alliance can gather those one million petitions. But even though many Americans who receive this email will sign the petition, many won’t be able to contribute. That’s why it’s vital you agree to your donation of $10, or even more if you can. Without your help, the National Pro-Life Alliance will be unable to gather the one million petitions and mount the full-scale national campaign necessary to pass a Life at Conception Act. A sacrificial gift of $50 or even $25 now could spare literally millions of innocent babies in years to come.  But if that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10. You should also know that a National Pro-Life Alliance supporter wants to make your decision to give easier by agreeing to match your donation, no matter the size, increasing its value by 100%! So please respond right away with your signed petition. And please help by agreeing to your generous contribution of $10. Some people have already given as much as $500. Others have given $100. But no matter how much you give, whether it’s chipping in with $10 or a larger contribution of $25, I guarantee your contribution is urgently needed and will be deeply appreciated. That’s why I hope and pray that you will not delay a moment to make a contribution of $10, $25, or even $50 if you can. Your contribution to the National Pro-Life Alliance and your signed petition will be the first steps toward reversing Roe v. Wade and waking up the politicians about where our barbarous pro-abortion policy is taking us. Sincerely, Rand Paul, United States Senator (R-KY)

P.S.  The Supreme Court itself admitted — if Congress declares unborn children “persons” under the law, the constitutional case for abortion-on-demand “collapses.”

That’s why it’s so critical to work to get a vote on the Life at Conception Act, legislation that would reverse Roe v. Wade. Please help make that happen. Sign your petition today to the National Pro-Life Alliance to reverse Roe v. Wade. Your petition is the critical first step in fighting to end abortion. Along with your signed petition, please consider making a sacrificial contribution of $25 or $50.  If that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10. You should also know a generous donor has agreed to match all contributions, no matter the size, increasing your gift to the National Pro-Life Alliance by 100%!”
