This video puts what is claimed to be the screen on the next iPhone to the hardness test.
It’s a good lesson on smartphone screens and also provides excellent explanations of how to choose sandpaper and the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.
It’s not yet getting much notice but the press secretary of a Pennsylvania congressman is facing gun charges.
Ryan Shucard, 26, was hired by Congressman Tom Marino (R-Pa10) in late May.
He is a resident of Alexandria, Va. and is registered, trained and permitted to hold a gun in his state, which he does, a 9mm Smith and Wesson.
Well, on Friday, July 18, he brought it work, unloaded, which he is allowed to do as federal law allows employees of Congress to bring unloaded guns into the Capitol — which can even be loaded afterwards.
The gun was seen by Capitol Police screeners on the x-ray belt and stopped the process and secured the area. Washington D.C. Police were called and they arrested Shucard, who had apparently forgotten he had the gun in his bag.
While it is now legal due to the Heller decision to have a gun in one’s one and business in the District of Columbia, carrying a gun in D.C. without a D.C. gun license is a crime punishable for up to five years in prison, and the District does not recognize Virginia’s permits.
Shucard has pleaded not guilty and Marino has placed him on unpaid leave albeit has been supportive of him.
That a young man faces a criminal record and a long prison sentence for doing nothing wrong is a disgrace. The District must be made to recognize the legitimate rights of others and end its unnecessary and obtrusive policies designed to harass those who are inclined to leave others alone.
Shucard is not facing any federal charges.
College students are not starving reports eMarketer.com. In fact, they are doing pretty well.

Who’s paying for it?
About 45 percent of college students said it was their parents footing the bill, 40 percent said they got spending money by working and 15 percent said they relied on loans.

About 35 concerned citizens, including several Delaware County Patriots, rallied at the Exit 1 overpass of I-95 in Boothwyn, Saturday, July 19, to call attention to swarming of the our southern border by illegal aliens and the negligence by the Obama administration in dealing with the mater.
The rally lasted from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and was among the hundreds that occurred across the United States to call attention to the problem.
“The constant honking and thumbs up from both the thousands of cars on I-95 and also the hundreds of cars passing by on the heavily traveled overpass road, in addition to positive comments from walkers, was heartening and indicated overwhelming support for our viewpoint,” said rally participant Joanne Yurchak. “Hopefully, people are starting to wake up and realize that something has to be done before the damage that the current administration is doing to America can no longer be reversed.”
She noted that it is not only children entering the country but gang members, criminals and terrorists.
