Last week’s poll revisited a question first asked back in 2008 about how your watch TV. I was interested in seeing just how things have changed with people’s TV subscription habits as new technology has become more widespread and easy to access for less than traditional media delivery systems. While I figured OTA and Internet delivery methods would be making gains on Cable and Satellite providers, according to this poll that’s simply not the case at all. In fact even though there were more respondents, the percentages moved very little.
Seriously people, drop the TV addiction. There’s absolutely no reason you need to pay $60+ a month for something that has almost no benefit for you and your family. Drop it, use OTA and supplement with free and/or less expensive options. You’ll have more time to yourself and you’ll pay a lot less. [/rant]
According to this article in Burnsville Patch, an ISD191 third-grade teacher is suing the school district for negligent property maintenance and “allowing a dangerous condition to exist” following a slip and fall on ice in the parking lot of Sioux Trail Elementary School in Burnsville on January 25, 2010. While she asks for $50,000+ she claims it is due to the injuries and emotional distress sustained following the fall:
As a result of the accident, Ivory suffered “severe and permanent injuries,” according to the lawsuit. She has also suffered emotional stress, “past and future pain and suffering” and past and future medical expenses, the suit says.
But, as the public photos on her Facebook account appear to show she’s made a pretty decent recovery as of August 2010.
With so many knowing that lawyers and the general public use Facebook, as well as other social media sites, as evidence in cases don’t you think that someone would want to ensure their photos are private? What about those who don’t even have any pending litigation? As a general user of social media (or the Internet in general) do you share photos, actions, etc with the rest of the world? If so, do you take steps to ensure that a limited number of people are able to view them? Whatever you have to say about this one vote on the sidebar and then comment on below.
