These adapters are high quality at a low price. I’ve used these adapters to plug a USB Drive into my phone as well as USB peripherals into my computer. This adapter came in handy when I needed 3 ports recently. Since you receive three, you wont have to always move the adapter between travel bags if you have multiple devices that require one.
Pros
– Small. Not much larger than a USB A connector
– Made of metal like most CHOETECH products, not to worried about one breaking
– USB 3. You are able to get full USB 3 speeds, with compatibility for USB 2 devices as well
Cons:

– Cheap plastic zip lock bag… Not really a problem. Just thought it was funny, after seeing everything else have a nice box of some kind

This is the fifth time in American history, and only 16 years since voters chose Al Gore but got George W. Bush instead, that the Electoral College overruled the will of the American people. It’s an affront to our democracy and a sign that the system is broken.

Please join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, and end the Electoral College’s power to overturn the will of the voters.

We believe every vote should count equally, regardless of where you live in the United States – EVERY vote in EVERY state should matter in EVERY presidential election. But thanks to the Electoral College, our presidential elections are based on state winner-take-all laws that award all of a state’s electoral votes to the candidate receiving the most popular votes inside each separate state. This winner-take-all system means presidential candidates have no reason to pay attention to voters in states where they are safely ahead or hopelessly behind. Instead, candidates focus on “swing states” while largely ignoring the rest of the country. But there’s a realistic path to restoring our democracy and overruling the Electoral College by 2020, and we don’t have to go through the Trump-led, Republican-controlled Congress. If we can get enough states to sign onto the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, our presidents will be elected by the national popular vote, not the outdated Electoral College.

Please join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, and end the Electoral College’s power to overturn the will of the voters.

The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact would require states to award all their electoral votes to whichever presidential candidate wins the national popular vote. And we already have momentum to getting this enacted nationally: Right now, ten states and the District of Columbia have joined the compact, possessing 165 electoral votes altogether. If states and territories totaling at least 270 electoral votes pass laws joining the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, then the people’s choice won’t be overruled by the Electoral College in the next presidential election. That means we’re only 105 electoral votes away from making sure we don’t have another 2016 in 2020!

After hearing people talk about protests and how stupid it is. Protesting does work and I feel people are missing the point of it. BUT! With all the riots going that are link to the protests is wrong. Why take it out on a Mom and Pa shop because you are mad. These people had nothing to do with Trump or Clinton. Protest and stand together and fight the system! But do NOT destroy other people’s job/lives in the process.  I tired of people acting like mindless drones and have no sense of history. I was sent this email about protesting and thought it hit the nail on the head a bit.

“Ok, so The protests. I’ve got a couple things to say about them, or, more specifically to the people saying things like ‘Protests don’t work’ or ‘they’re just a bunch of crybabies and sore losers.’

First, let me say I don’t condone violent protests or riots. These achieve nothing and work counter to your cause.

‘Protests don’t work’
The point of a protest is to draw attention to a cause and (hopefully) draw enough support to effect change.
By talking about it, even to post sarcastic memes or bash and disparage it, you are helping it. You are bringing more attention to the cause. If you disagree with their cause, you’re better off ignoring it – like I do when the Clan marches.
Furthermore, protests DO work.
Protests got you the 8 hour workday, the 40 hour work week, and the weekend.
Protests got you fair pay for a fair days work.
Protests got women the right to vote.
Protests got African Americans the right to vote.
Protests advanced civil rights (but we still have a long way to go.)
Protests guaranteed marriage equality for all.
Protests have ended (and caused) wars.
Protests legalized weed for 1 in 5 Americans! (I bet you like that one)
Protests gave us our own nation. The one we now call the United States of America.
And many, many, many more things were changed because people had the courage to protest. Whether you agreed with them or not. So, basically, you are wrong. Protest does work – not always, not for everything, not for everyone, but it does.
‘They’re a bunch of crybabies and sore losers.’
I got to listen to 8 years of crybabies crying about what they *thought* would happen to their second amendment rights.  8 years of dipshits turned faux constitutionalists ‘protecting our rights!’ Well, I hate to break it to you but the constitution is not the Bible. You can’t cherry pick the verses that fit your worldview and ignore the rest. These people happen to be exercising the right that comes before your favorite one.  The very FIRST one the founding fathers wrote into the constitution. The right to free speech. And the beauty of that right is you don’t have to agree with what they have to say. That’s your right too! Sadly, and I know this bums you out, you don’t have the right to silence them.
They’re not a bunch of sore losers. You’re pretending that had Hillary won, we wouldn’t be seeing Trump supporters doing the exact same thing (or worse.)

Star Wars Book Challenge 6: Razor’s Edge (Empire and Rebellion #1)

Star Wars Book Challenge

star-wars-book-challenge_silver.png

Razor’s Edge…. The first Novel in a loose trilogy of books commissioned in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Mostly designed to let bigger sci-fi authors play around with the characters in this world, and also to spotlight each of the ‘Big Three’ in their own novels. Each novel can stand on its own, but they all take place in the time between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, after the destruction of the first Death Star. Razor’s Edge is Leia’s novel. I liked it…. Kinda… I think it could have been better handled. I mean the over all story and idea behind it all was great. Just the author seemed to have trouble getting it out there or she used some really weird descriptive words. It’s a good read and I would recommend it to anyone, just be ready to go “WTF” from time to time.

The second Novel will be written by sci-fi James S.A. Corey were released before Disney killed the EU. So technically the first two are no longer canon and are relegated to ‘Legends’ status, while Kevin Hearne’s book Heir to the Jedi is official in the new EU. I get the feeling it won’t matter, though. Hearne’s respect for Star Wars probably means it can be read with either canon in mind, although I have no idea what, if anything, was changed in his book after the EU was forcibly “retired”.

17345202Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal.

But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: the fierce marauders come from Leia’s homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star. These refugees have turned to pillaging and plundering to survive—and they are in debt to a pirate armada, which will gladly ransom the princess to the vengeful Empire . . . if they find out her true identity.

Struggling with intense feelings of guilt, loyalty, and betrayal, Leia is determined to help her wayward kinspeople, even as Imperial forces are closing in on her own crippled ship. Trapped between lethal cutthroats and brutal oppressors, Leia and Han, along with Luke, Chewbacca, and a battle-ready crew, must defy death—or embrace it—to keep the rebellion alive.
