Trader Joe’s Fruit And Nuts, Date, Hazelnut, Cacao – Discontinued
 

If you are like me you go to Trader Joe’s and find something you really like and then it is discontinued. Well it happened again, Trader Joe’s had bags of 8 Nothing but Fruit & Nuts, Dates, Hazelnut, Cacao snacks, disks, The name says it all! These little disks contain nothing but Dates, Hazelnuts, and Cacao for a delicious on the go treat. Unsweetened. 8 .88oz 25g pieces.

The package was selling for $3.99 at stores, and now is selling for upwards of $12 online on ebay, amazon and other online stores.

There are other varieties but apparently according to one local store this variety is discontinued. From one day to the next the shelf was cleared out, so someone must have tipped off someone that was it. No more. This type of snack disk is available from other companies, perhaps they are the ones making it for Trader Joe’s.

Citimortage Loan Servicing Sold to Cenlar As Complaints Registered Horrible Reviews @citi #citimortgage
 

CitiMortgage a division of Citi Group has apparently decided to exit or sell their loan servicing business. The company to handle the loans is Cenlar. A company who has nothing but bad reviews.

The letter we received from Citimortgage comes two weeks before the first payment is due! With no prior notification, and nothing mentioned on the CitiMortgage portal /dashboard. it is alarming that the letter looks like a total scam, but apparently as confirmed by a rep from Cenlar and CitiMortgage in the Philippines, the letter is accurate.

The issues are countless as Cenlar cannot setup accounts, less than two weeks from the due date. Both parties claim that auto payments will be transferred and there will be no late fees.

If you are a Citi Mortgage customer you should be very worried that this transition is plagued with problems especially since Citi claims they are doing everything to ensure a smooth transition. You can read more about the 2017 Citi press release here

Citi was fined for unscrupulous practices of $8.6 million by the Federal Reserve, not much has been written about this. Here is the story.

U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds celebrate Captain Marvel with Hollywood flyover Pasadena, Caltech, JPL and Los Angeles #AFThunderbirds, #CaptainMarvel, #SuperHeroAirman #AirForce @afthunderbirds
 

U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds celebrate Captain Marvel with Hollywood flyover

Formation of six F-16 Fighting Falcons to fly over Hollywood

NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. – The United States Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron “Thunderbirds” will fly over Hollywood in celebration of the upcoming film Captain Marvel during the afternoon of March 4, 2019.

The formation will feature six F-16 Fighting Falcons, the Air Force’s premier multi-role fighter aircraft, soaring over Hollywood from 12:15 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Marvel Studio’s newest film, Captain Marvel, will release in theaters nationwide on March 8. The film follows the story of Captain Carol Danvers, an Air Force fighter pilot who goes on to become the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“This flyover is a unique moment to honor the men and women serving in the Armed Forces who are represented in Captain Marvel,” said Lt. Col. John Caldwell, the Thunderbirds Commander/Leader. “Being part of this event is a tremendous opportunity, and we look forward to demonstrating the pride, precision and professionalism of the 660,000 total force Airmen of the U.S. Air Force over the city of Los Angeles.”

The Thunderbirds have close ties to the film’s production. Last January, in preparation for the film, lead actress Brie Larson and director Anna Boden visited the team during an Air Force immersion and F-16 flight at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev.

During production, the team provided two Thunderbird pilots to advise cast and crew on fighter pilot traditions and culture. One of the advisors was Maj. Stephen “Cajun” Del Bagno, who passed away in a mishap during a routine Thunderbird training flight in Nevada only a week after consulting on-set.

“Executing this flyover is a fitting tribute to Cajun,” said Maj. Matt Kimmel, the Thunderbirds Lead Solo pilot who advised the Captain Marvel team with Maj. Del Bagno. “He lived to share his passion for aviation with everyone he met and always left you with a smile. We carry his legacy each day and can’t wait to make him proud by showing off his U.S. Air Force and his team in his backyard.”

Residents along the flight path can expect a few seconds of jet noise as the aircraft pass overhead, along with the sight of six high-performance fighter aircraft flying less than three feet from each other in precise formation.

The Thunderbirds welcome and encourage viewers to tag the team on social media in photos and videos of their formation with the hashtags #AFThunderbirds, #CaptainMarvel, #SuperHeroAirman and #AirForce.

For more on the team, go to afthunderbirds.com or follow @afthunderbirds on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Security Tokens and Blockchain @EntForumCaltech
 

Building the Infrastructure for Tokenizing Ownership of Non-Crypto Assets

Blockchain technology provides a means by which a secure database may be replicated reliably in multiple locations, with protection against fraudulent transactions. A very high value application of Blockchain is the reliable recording of ownership of things in the real world, ranging from stocks and bonds, to real estate, even to ownership of fine art.

Blockchain shows promise for leveling the playing field as the world shifts from a small number of computer systems that monopolize their respective markets to a set of databases that can be distributed and coordinated among independent players. To do that will require the development of technologies and technical infrastructure that do not yet exist. Now and in the near future, there will be many opportunities for entrepreneurs who produce the technical solutions.

This program will sort out the various opportunities and will attempt to identify which current players are likely to continue to dominate the marketplace and become customers for the new technologies.

PASADENA, Calif.—The public is invited to the grand reopening of Robinson Park Recreation Center (RPRC), 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave., on Saturday, January 26, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The event will begin with a ceremonial ribbon cutting and will continue with tours of the new state-of-the-art facility, free demonstration classes, and light refreshments.

“We are excited to return high-quality recreation programming for all ages and abilities to Robinson Park Recreation Center. Recreation programming improves neighborhood quality of life and well-being, strengthens public safety and brings people together.

Verizon To Offer Robocall Blocking Tool for Free
 

Kudos to Verizon for being the first major wireless provider to offer a tool that can combat robocallers. The pace of robocallers has progressively worsened over the past year. Most people don’t answer calls they do not recognize, as it is most likely a robocaller. The amount of calls being made by these operators worldwide is in the millions of calls. In hopes that even a small percentage of those being called answer and engage and fall for the scam.

Verizon has implemented on its network the new technology labelled STIR/SHAKEN STIR (Secure Telephone Identity Revisited) and SHAKEN (Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) standards
