HERMAN CAIN $10 MILLION COUNTERSUIT: DEFAMATION of CHARACTER
Herman Cain: Weiner of the Week
Appsnewbie does NOT take political sides.
Just a mere observer of the convoluted and winding road to 1600
Let us take a look at this sexual harassment media frenzy objectively.
Herman, here is your solution:
You, Herman Cain, are in your office at a company where you am a top management person.
Anther management person informs you that a “ complaint “ has been filed against you for sexual harassment .
SINCE I HAVE NEVER SEXUALLY HARRSSED ANYBODY IN MY LIFE,
The first words out of your mouth are:
WHAAAT? WHO ? ARE THEY NUTS ?
I WANT TO SPEAK TO THAT LYING JOKER NOW.
Then when the management person with whom you are speaking even utters the word
You are REALLY furious and probably yelling as you reply,
”In your dreams will I agree to any settlement. I NEVER sexually harassed anyone in my entire career .There will be a settlement all right; I’ll show them a settlement like they never saw before.
Those liars will rue the day they ever even HEARD my name. There will be hell to pay for lying about me like this.”
You would then be picking up the phone to your attorney and immediately be:
FILING A $10 MILION DOLLAR DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER LAWSUIT AGAINST EACH ACCUSER. AND THEIR ATTORNEYS, FOR BRING A SPURIOUS ACTION.
That will get their attention, by God.
Of course, this is the APPSNEWBIE solution, predicated upon the premise that
I HAVE NEVER SEXUALLY HARRSSED ANYBODY IN MY LIFE .
Herman Cain – here is your solution.
WHERE IS THE MOVIE?
OR THE TV SERIES- YOU HAD ME AT HELLO..
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: LOVE IT: Ransom Riggs- KUDOS
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: LOVE IT
Thank you Ransom Riggs..a GREAT first novel to be sure.
See , Appsnewbie is not ALL gloom and doom.
Rarely do Ii read non fiction-but this is TERRIFFIC-
I prefer it to Harry Potter actually.
Is there a film or a series in the offing?
I wish there were- LOVED the trailer
Thank you Palm Beach Post for such a timely article.
Although this particular case is from Florida, this same tragic scenario is being rewritten daily through our great Nation under Bailout . The digital divide is growing daily- hourly- with each click of our collective mice.
Although the 50 plus age community is highly represented ( or NEVER counted as they are invisible)
in this struggling group, the newly poor – the foreclosed, homeless and jobless are in the same hopeless situation.
When I created APPSNEWBIE, I strongly felt that this ” technological underclass” was a sad byproduct we would see and I HOPED ( silly Pollyanna me ) that as a moral a society, we l find it of value to provide education- access and services to the desperately in need .Silly Appsnewbie.
You cannot even apply for a job without a computer.
But you lost your house -foreclosure AND you pawned your laptop so you could eat.Or buy your diabetes medication
You are living in a car and the libraries and workforce shops have limited computer usage times-;
Those public computers also have firewalls so all job sites are not usable-and you cannot type that fast
Plus the public computers they have are slow- hey -
the billionaire computer vendor who had that government t contract that sold the computers palmed off his second rate stuff- no sweat -
After all- his/her pal was sure he got the bid…
WHEN DO BILLIONAIRE APPLE and MICROSOFT START TO REALLY PROVIDE PUBLIC COMPUTERS and TRAINING-
THAT MAKE PEOPLE EMPLOYABLE? NOT JUST DATA ENTRY ?
WHERE and WHEN?
APPSNEWBIE IS JUST ASKING ..
Seniors Without Computers Struggle to Apply for Food Stamps, Medicaid benefits
Philip Proulx knew just enough about computers to check guests in at an apartment building in Palm Beach, where he worked as a doorman for several years.
Proulx, 77, was laid off recently and realized his $735 monthly Social Security check would not cover his expenses. His only hope was applying for food stamps and cash assistance.
Proulx said he tried calling the state Department of Children and Families’ toll-free number to apply over the phone, but a recorded message kept telling him to call back because of high call volumes.
He asked for help at several community organizations but was told he could apply for government aid only through the Internet. Proulx said he had no idea how to even get to the DCF website, much less find the application and submit it online.
Proulx’s quandary is not isolated, according to officials at local community agencies. Elderly and disabled residents or those without computer skills or access to an Internet connection, often struggle to get help to obtain food stamps and Medicaid assistance, the officials say.
“If they have no computer skills, they cannot apply on their own,” said Lela Jordan, director of Vickers House in West Palm Beach. “Many people who need food stamps and Medicaid face barriers to even apply because of their lack of computer skills.”
“If you are computer-ignorant, that’s too bad,” Proulx said. “You’ve got to find out how to do it on your own.”
He eventually found help at Vickers House and applied for food stamps and cash assistance online. But before he did, he said, “I’ve never been so confused in my life.”
DCF says about 90 percent of food stamp recipients apply online – an indicator that most have access to computers. But DCF spokesman Joe Follick said, “we do understand the frustration” of those who struggle with the online application process or busy phone lines.
DCF does not keep track of the number of complaints about the online application process since calls come in from regional and circuit offices, call centers and even the governor’s office.
But Follick said the department is aware of the problems and determined to fix them: “It’s our number one priority.”
DCF’s manpower has remained largely the same over the past five years, even though requests for food stamps have more than tripled, Follick said.
Even DCF Secretary David Wilkins, in a memo to employees of the department’s online system, called Access, said improvements must be made to ease the application process and make more operators available for callers.
“Employees, the millions of clients they help and all Floridians deserve a system that is efficient and minimizes the delay and frustration that are already heightened when families face difficult situations,” Wilkins wrote.
This year, DCF hired a new economic self-sufficiency director and has hired 60 employees for its call centers, Wilkins said.
Simple requests, such as how to reset passwords for online access, are being diverted to a group of operators to reduce wait times on the toll-free number, and the process will eventually be automated, Wilkins said. The department also plans to make its website easier to navigate.
Meanwhile, problems remain.
At Christians Reaching Out to Society Ministries, or C.R.O.S. Ministries, in Lake Worth, Director Pam Cahoon said many of her clients find it impossible to reach DCF to apply for benefits.
She said those without computers can sometimes use public library machines, but most libraries enforce time limits on computers.
“Unless you are really fast with the computer, you can’t get through,” Cahoon said. “It’s just absolutely horrible.”
At C.R.O.S., the demand for help filling out food stamp applications online is so high that the organization and DCF are splitting the cost of two workers dedicated to helping people apply and interview for government aid, Cahoon said.
“It’s just virtually impossible to get through on the phone,” she said.

I got the same Gateway at Office Depot for $ 499.00, what a nice price, as my Sony, which I loved, just couldn’t get to work even with recovery disks after 3 yrs use, the average length any of my pc lasted.
Well after reading the prior bad reports, I have my fingers crossed and hope it lasts 3 yrs min.
So far so good and love the big screen and color red.
On a lark, I searched the web and found a free platform called Ubuntu, downloaded the free platform and replaced my Windows Vista which caused so many problems, To my amazement, the new Ubuntu is a gift from the gods, so interesting and fun to use and proved the problem was MICROSOFT not my Sony that I thought I would have to toss out. Now two lovely pc to play with and one, a new African 3rd world system to enjoy. So far keeping my fingers crossed hoping I am one of the lucky ones with my Gateway.
Love this video…

As poor Appsnewbie has had SO many tech failures -and it always seems to me that everyone else is so blamed adroit-
I must confess a bit of gentle glee when even the techie hot shots find the same frustrations that I do.
CHILDREN: WHAT THEY WATCH IS WHAT THEY BECOME:
SHOW THEM WELL
NEVER FORGET THIS GOLDEN RULE
WXEL sponsored PBS Ready to Learn is just ONE of the many many reasons why we as citizens and business people need to support pubic broadcasting.
In an ever shrinking world, where monetization, intellectual and verbal brevity rein supreme, WXEL and its programming provide a treasure rove of learning for children.
For thousands of children- their perception of the world- their values
and methodology of speech ( for good or for ill) will come from the Television- NOT an engaged parent or nanny or relative. It comes from an entitiy who wants to turn air time into money at all costs- and if what they sell is un suitable or even of detrimental ,they haevno concern.
Frightening; as the child will transmute those attitudes and values to their lives and life choices.

GATEWAY Laptop : WEAK BATTERY AFTER 4 WEEKS
When I gave you my strum and drung /indecision about going with a Gateway – ( SOOO CUTE ) versus an HP
The Gateway had a FEW more bells and whistles- but VERY close.
My rocket scientist (really that is what he is -swear to God )
Computer advisor- guru -said take that Gateway back- do not even THINK about a Gateway when you can get much the same laptop from HP.
Gateway is FAMOUS for cost cutting in R&D and engineering.
They spend money on the”cute “ translation; marketing staff is usually cheaper Per hour and more plentiful.
I am not ragging on Gateway them- that is the business decision they have made.
I am attaching a comment from one of our fellow Appsnewbies, who purchased a Gateway Laptop.
I rest my case –if a battery is recharged –and is weak after 4WEEKS ??
Guess Gateway chose to use a cheap batch of batteries.
Just as Gould National Battery did in Minnesota a few years back – ( OMG)
They convinced the poor local AAA to buy and promote these batteries for the AAA membership . Which AAA promoted – with a vengeance. Remember this is a subzero climate- but the batteries were so underpowered they were better suited for Palm Beach.
AAA was FLOODED – with frozen car calls
It was one of the coldest winters in 20 years; as in 30 below.
Gould Battery tried to pass off a substandard product- and the reputation of both AAA and Gould suffered.
SO that is why Appsnewbie is an HP owner .
