Re: “Belphegor's Prime

Around 300 BC, Greek mathematician Euclid showed that there is an infinity of primes thus:
Assume to the contrary, that there is a finite list of primes: p1, p2, ..., pr. Let P be the product of this list plus one, i.e. P = ( Now P is either prime or it is not.
(1) If it is prime, then P is a prime that was not in our list.
(2) If P is not prime, then it is divisible by some prime, call it p. But p can't be any of p1, p2, ..., pr, since you'd have a remainder of 1. So this prime p is some prime that was not in our original list.
Either way, the original list was incomplete, hence there's an infinity of primes.

Re: “Shots, Shots, Shots

It's a waste of time if one walk without God, for he is everything and everything is he. He directed my part and place me in good health.
As at January this year, I almost took my own life thinking that God was done with me but i was wrong. I thought that hsv-1&2 was the end of the road for me.
I was diagnosed of this nasty virus march 2015 and since then i have been searching for a permanent cure but all my effort was to no avail until i involved God in my quest. despite the fact that i was told countless time that there is no cure but just suppressing med, i went ahead looking for a way out knowing that nothing is too hard for almighty God, so i did not not give in to the no cure idea instead i pray for direction and mercy.
On one faithful morning, i received a call from my son's school demanding to know why my son don't come to school early and the reason why he is not happy. i opened up and told them that i am passing through hard time that they shouldn't worry that i will put things in order but the principle was interested and so she insisted that i confide in her which i did, i told her that i have herpes. she felt so sorry for me but at the end of the call, she gave me a man's contact who she claim can cure me. To shorten the story, i contacted the man and he gave me herbal medication which i used for 21 day. But i did not go for blood test even when all the symptoms was no more because i was scared of everything but the doc encourage me to go for medical check up which i reluctantly did, to my greatest surprise, there is no trace of hsv or any STDs/ STIs in my system . so i decide to share the contact so that many can be free from any disease that trouble humanity. and here is the doctor's email: Thanks for reading this to the end.

Re: “Huffman, Thompson Blast Trump Admin for Leaving California out of Disaster Funding

If they believe Trump's policies to be harmful to their constituents, why should they not object to them? "Fanatical" implies that the policies would benefit us and the congressmen are objecting simply for partisan reasons. I don't think that is the case.

Re: “A Men's Guide to Surviving a Sexual Harassment Witch Hunt

Hey, I got 10 likes. Not bad for considering the audience. Better than I expected:)

@LizzieH. Why would I want to have any sexual contact with a woman I found to be physically and personally repulsive? Use some logic.

@Jennifer: My point is that this issue is NOT a clear black and white issue. There is no switch for when behavior is improper. The totality of circumstances must be considered. In my 3rd hand account for instance, taken by itself the EEOC would say the comment was improper. But placed in a broader scale, it might not have been.

I think we're all seeing that women are subjected to improper behavior by men in power. No real news there, just shining light on a quasi open secret. My concern is that this will spiral into a witch hunt. How many day care workers from the 80's are still in prison after that round of witch hunts?

I am all for people being treated properly in the workplace, regardless of gender. I am a little concerned that without some caution, many men with face unjust hardships in the years to come.

Re: “Judge Cuts to the Chase in Public Defender Lawsuit

The man has no conscious. He is a great pretender. He puppets everyone's advice as if it were his own and then runs with it. He lacks even the most basic knowledge of criminal defense. It is truly pitiful that he is dragging the office down. He kisses the arses of the Supes who are either could care less about PD clients and the constitution or who are too ignorant to realize they have no clue what a PD requires.

Re: “Judge Cuts to the Chase in Public Defender Lawsuit

I worked with David in So Cal. He left almost daily at 10:30am to play golf with the Supervisor of the Fontana office. He did the same thing in Redlands. The judges loved him because he was a dump truck. We always assumed he was building houses on the countys time. Why wasnt anything done about this ? Well, welcome to San Bernardino. He is unfit public for this job by any objective standard.. In a different post, someone thought he looked alcoholic. Hmm, that would explain a lot. In Susanville, I suspect he hung out at the Indian casino which could explain the bankruptcy mentioned in another article. Any Board of Supervisor who supports this clown should be recalled.

Re: “Squireses' Properties? Going, Going, Gone?

Its pretty interesting, whats going on with the Squires properties. It seems like the City of Eureka hired Santa Monica based attorney Mark Adams to steal the properties, not bring them up to code. To defend a trespassing suit and being a receiver for four weeks he charged $158,000? How many thousands a week does Jeff Smith or the average receiver get? I want to be a receiver too. The way Mark Adams and his company, California Receivership Group creatively charges they'll end up with all the Squires places and The City of Eureka owing them money to boot. He must have gone to Trump University. They're going to get a management company and everything. That will take care of all the problems.
If the Squires owe $1,500,000 in back property taxes, why didn't the County ever put their properties up for sale? They do it with numerous other properties for a lot less. If the City and County want some of their money, why don't they sell the 26 properties one at a time? The return will be much higher and first time homebuyers could get a chance to buy an affordable fixer upper.
Ha ha ha, this is Humboldt County, the only business model they have ever known here is the Robber Baron business model. I am not exaggerating either.

Re: “Judge Cuts to the Chase in Public Defender Lawsuit

The main reason that David Marcus was picked to head the Public Defenders Office is part of the bigger picture and that is to comply with Rule Number One of The Prison Industry. Rule Number One is No Vacancies!
The long mandatory sentences, higher fines, the three strikes youre out laws, judges always asking for cash bail instead of releasing local people arrested for petty crimes on their own recognizance as they used to, the extreme parole and probation rules that are designed to get people thrown back in jail, are just some of the policies used to keep the jails and prisons full. Of course arresting poor people including the mentally ill, for the crime of having no place to go also helps keep the jail full too, not that there is any place else to take them to.
With a new $20,000,000.00 addition to the Humboldt County Debtors Prison (County Jail) coming up, the last thing The Industry wants is a hard-hitting Public Defender. What they want is a Public Defender who will just rubber stamp whatever the District Attorney and the Judges come up with. Got to follow Rule Number One, you know.

Re: “The Silent Compromise

Your job Thadeus, is to whip up interest,where there is none, in whatever story you are reporting on. Otherwise, the story just pretty much dies on the vine. I do believe that the lack of interest on this subject is the public's support of their District Attorney to do the right thing. Coupled with the complete immersion from the press of any and all officer involved incidents and you have a population which is just trying to get through the day, especially that population in California. Allow those people who deal with this subject the most to come up with a policy and then tweak it if necessary.

Re: “Huffman, Thompson Blast Trump Admin for Leaving California out of Disaster Funding

If the Congressman and his predecessor would be less fanatical regarding their opposition to everything the President would like to accomplish, then maybe California would fare better when it comes to the federal government. But we know Jared is not going to play ball, no matter what, so he will allow California to just slip into the abyss along with his constituents and nothing gets done in Washinton.
