I Dedicate this to Josh The Hitman Rabedeaux....R.I.P.

Last words from his Mother....Today is a sad day and it will be the worst day of my life. I'm sitting here in the hopsital that Josh was born in and his dad Bruce and I was so excited for our son to be born March 3rd 1984, today is June 25 and we will watch our sons life end, How can this be ? How can someone who had so much to live for someone so full of life not want to be here anymore. As I have sat here in the hospital for the last five days I have watched his friends and family come to see him and so many people truely love and care about him and we thank all of you so very much. Today is a very sad day for us. My life will never be the same and a part of my life will also end without my sidekick , my bestfriend, my loving son,the person that calls me daily to tell his mom he love me. My life will never be the same. Josh was home in AZ a week ago and a week ago we was staying at a resort living life , he was golfing with my husband beating him at golf and loving life. I will never forget last weekend and as I brought him to the airport to return to Iowa I didn't know that that would be the last hug I would ever receive from him and when he looked back at me and waved it really was a final good bye. If we only knew what life changes was going to accur maybe I would have never put him on that plane. I hope all of you who are reading this takes this and uses it in your life, never say anything to hurt anyone, never treat anyone badly to where it will hurt them, also show someone they are special don't tell them there a loser or you wish them died, don't tell them there not a man because they really are. Words hurt word can take someones life. My son was hurting and if I could have taken his pain away I would have I would have given my life to him, I gave him life and today I will watch his life end. Today is the last day for me to be a mother, to kiss to hold everything, the one thing that will never stop is the love that I have for Josh he is my life, if you know me you know how I feel. Bruce and I know that Josh loved us we will never question that. I'm sorry that my son hurt so bad that he felt that he had to take his life. WHY. Please don't ever forget him please learn from this please don't ever do this because you will be leaving a lot of people who love you. One more thing if any of you ever feel like Josh did please call me send me a text or a email anything I will help you I will try to help you, you can come to AZ anything please ask for my help.Life means something. Thank you for caring about our family but most of all thank you for loving Josh..I will need some of you too ,to help me through this pain and loss of my wonderful son who I lived for who I gave life too who I loved with all of my heart.. God Bless all of you and may he keep you safe. Bonnie

A Camera That Could Care Less About Focus: Introducing Lytro

Remember cameras that would have to focus themselves before taking a snapshot? And how that could lose vital seconds, making a mockery of the term “point and shoot”?

Oh, right — that would describe every digital camera currently on the market. But if one Silicon Valley startup has its way, the very idea of focusing, or adjusting light levels, or having to wait before you click the shutter, will be a relic of the early 21st century — along, perhaps, with photos that only exist in two dimensions.

Lytro is the brainchild of Dr. Ren Ng, a Stanford Ph.D whose dissertation on light-field technology five years ago was showered with awards. Now, with the help of $50 million in funding, most of it from Andreessen Horowitz, Ng has built a company that’s preparing to launch a focus-free digital camera later this year.

The basic premise of Lytro’s technology is pretty simple: the camera captures all the information it possibly can about the field of light in front of it. You then get a digital photo that is adjustable in an almost infinite number of ways. You can focus anywhere in the picture, change the light levels — and presuming you’re using a device with a 3-D ready screen — even create a picture you can tilt and shift in three dimensions. (I got a demonstration of the camera’s 3-D photos on a laptop earlier today, and was blown away.)

You might think that this would produce unfeasibly large digital files, but Ng insists that the files will be roughly comparable to the average size of a digital photo today. The heavy lifting is being done by the camera’s on-board processors, he says. And because its light sensor is incredibly sensitive, you can capture low-light situations like restaurants a lot more easily — even without the flash.

Although the camera itself isn’t due out until late 2011, Lytro today unveiled a carousel of demonstration snapshots — all of them embeddable, available in Flash for the web and HTML5 for your smartphone. Here’s an example. Click anywhere on the picture to change the focus, double-click to zoom. via masableWANT TO THE SEE AMAZING NEW WAY THIS CAMERA WORKS ..CLICK HERE

Fedor Emelianenko will get 4 bags this size,jus sayin...

According to a report from ESPN, Fedor Emelianenko is set to haul in $1.5 million for his fight against Dan Henderson, who will take home a cool $800,000. The bout is set to air live on Showtime at the upcoming July 30 Strikeforce event emanating from the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.
