My First 4K Video  »  Ron's Log
Waokiye at Cabot's Museum is the subject for my first 4K video. I recently acquired a ThiEYE T5e which is $170 at Amazon, but just under $100 at GearBest which is in China. I know buying direct from China is a crapshoot, but a 41% discount is pretty substantial. Reviews of this camera point out that it is genuine 4K, not interpolated from 1080p. I have a 4K display, but my Mac Mini can't do any better than 1080p, so the only way I can see this in 4K is to connect the camera directly to my ...

Bob Hope Patriotic Hall  »  Ron's Log
I went on a tour of Bob Hope Patriotic Hall, which is that building that sort of sticks out and up, south of the 10 near the 110 interchange. It's just for veterans. It hosts several veterans groups and provides space for organizations providing services to veterans. So, it's not a museum, but there are photos on display and some historical artifacts. Most of those are behind glass, which makes for bad photography. This is the place that sort of stands out, south of the 10, near the interchange with the 110. On the top floor, ...

Sessions  »  Ron's Log
Representative Hakeem Jeffries questioning AG Jeff Sessions today: Someone has observed that Sessions reacts differently to the Senators depending on their race. I haven't (and don't plan to) watched enough C-SPAN to have an informed opinion about this. But if one of my readers does, do let me hear from you. ...

"Captain America"  »  Ron's Log
In 2012 the FBI developed an informant who was a tow truck driver in south L.A. He wore a camera and documented corruption among L.A. County Sheriff Deputies. The code name for the informant was "Captain America." It was only after gathering evidence that the FBI discovered their informant was using a false name, was in the U.S. illegally, and had prior convictions for burglary and credit card fraud, among other things. The evidence then was turned over to the Sheriff's Department who used it to deal with the offenders administratively. "Captain America" is still in the U.S. ...
