Worst thing about teppanyaki in NY are the NYers who can not shut the hell up and eat. NODA in White Plains earns a 4 of 5 -- every thing was well done -- my only fickle scorn is not halving the shrimp and a soggy salad lettuce. #Assessment - 21:16:41 337 017 Miter
Arduino Flush-Less (Version 1.0)
California is suffering from a debilitating drought.
When hasn't it, am I right?
Convert grass to gravel and ficus to cacti are all proposed options.
The absolute solution?
Desalinization pla--er, I mean, stop pissing away water!

Standard toilets use up to 6,500 mL (1.6 gal) of water to flush
a standard person's 400 mL of urine twice a standard day.

Hack most existing toilets with the Arduino Flush-Less
and reduce waste by up to half with out replacing a single toilet.

With just 1,825 AFL units installed, we could save 1,000,000 gallons a year, exclamation point.

Notation
Despite the plethora of HackADay logos ala our futile attempt for favoritism amidst our submission unto the HackADay Prize-contest, the Arduino Flush-Less and TV Miller are not affiliated with HackADay or their unscrupulous, dubious, down-right-under handed ways. Heathens.

Currently in development is our Project AFL, for submission in the HackADay Prize contest. There are two methods to follow along with all the lack of action. Follow @TVMiller for real time updates which will include the occasional lambasting of another culture or book mark HackADay.io/project/2206-Project-AFL on HackADay's project repository or what ever one might identify it as. Stay tuned to further updates on this project as we seek to automate for efficiency by hacking the naughty bits depository.

FleshliPad Becomes Fleshlight LaunchPad
What was once a novelty engineering project, today has become what will certainly be an evolution of the medium of electronic interactive adult entertainment and subsequent gratification.

Three years ago, we pitched a product design to an executive at Fleshlight d.b.a. Interactive Life Forms. Less than a year later, it manifested in to a viral sensation, pun intended. The FleshliPad was chortled in discourse on programs like Playboy Radio and featured in gadget blogs to the likes of Gizmodo. It became a hypothetical global perv-nomenon.

The highly anticipated apex of this journey now cedes. Earlier today, Fleshlight released the following advertisement on YouTube which unveils their new product, the Fleshlight LaunchPad.


We here at TV Miller applaud it's finality and tip our hat with an affable watch yer top knot.

Resistance Theory (Pass 0.1 Sample)
Simplified for documentation, the upper diagram is a standard model theory of a photon transit via absorption and expulsion. The lower diagram is a two-dimensional spherical wave with oscillation disturbance transit and supplementary wave pattern representation under lay. The Resistance Model demonstrates wave field resistance nodes (particles) and subsequent containment prior to demanding frequency change, suspended in a three-dimensional compression mass.

555 Timer Delay On Relay Fritzing
Having scoured the internet for a visual 555 timer delay on relay or 955 timer delay on relay schematic, most did not display a fritzing'd version which for some is much more easily translatable.

Ingredients
IC1 555 Timer (955 Timer)
B1 9 Volt Battery
C1 47uf Capacitor (Electrolytic)
C2 0.1uf Capacitor (Ceramic)
R1 470K Resistor
RL1 5 Volt Relay
S1 Toggle Switch

Recipe
The fritzing displayed below operates after a 24 second delay.
To alter the delay-on time, increase or decrease C1 and R1.
The greater resistance of R1, the slower the current to fill C1.
The greater volume of C1, the longer to fill by R1 current.
IC 3 provides a positive voltage when triggered and stays high.

Nu Inglish
A singular language unifies a culture. It creates an environment of comprehension and awareness that bolsters proficiency and subsequent success. Words that construct language are a formulation of gestures, composed to suit a particular necessity. Often times in human history, they have been manipulated to suit ulterior motives that devolved to lasting difficulty and consequential deterrence.

At the core of words are letters as representatives of the structure of sound. How this sound is conditioned drives the efficient under standing of the words either heard or visualized. When the phonetics of a word is perverted, communication is thwarted.

Proposals for English language reform dates back to the dawn of a variant of the English language it's self and has had significant notable proponents.

Reconditioning language is by far the most difficult of teachings. Aside from physical manipulations, language is the most primary form of interaction for a developing mind. The accomplishment of this change requires phases, with an initial doubling of methods for youths for a generation and consistent simplified visual demonstrations. Unfortunately, even we advocating for change will be hard-pressed to utilize the variations with abundance, how ever we will begin to experiment with the process.

A frequently updated and developing Nu Inglish page will high light several word alterations and their phonetic component(s). Contributions to this project are welcomed.

The Sean Hannity Self Aggrandizing Ratio
News media personalities embrace two distinct methods of interaction. They can assimilate the role of a professor, elucidating as if were read from a book, or, they can personalize as if a conversation between catty ladies over tea. The latter is more impassioned, arrogant and emotionally driven and the least demonstrative of the conveyance of stability and intellect.

FOX News television and radio personality Sean Hannity is among these, which is antagonistic of the Capitalistic values he claims to endorse. While recently listening to his radio program, the rate at which he self-aggrandizes was intolerable, so we took a moment to catalog his self inflections from a random program on 153-074 (2 June 2014).


The length of the radio program was 96 minutes and 23 seconds in which Sean Hannity interviewed and interacted with several guests and staff. On average through out the entirety of the program, he utilized a self identifier once every 30.4 seconds though peaked in the third hour averaging once every 22.2 seconds. This does not extract time taken by guests to converse. All told, Sean Hannity identified him self as a component to the story a total 190 times. "We" was analyzed in two methods. It was ignored when utilized as show reference (ie bumpers) but accounted for when personalized (ie with spouse).

Our conclusion is, Sean Hannity is a flaccid feminine hygiene product.

News Tweets Analysis
News influences our perception of the world and in turn conditions us to demand particular genres of news which is then reciprocated by news organizations. The state of civilization and news practices could conceivably then be found amidst this.

We gathered tweets from a selection of major news distributors for a single 24 hour cycle and enumerated their genre and subsequent relevance. The number of posts from said organization is accompanied by the number of RTs.

@NBCNews was excluded from this analysis due to their cancellation of Community thus deservedly no longer exists to us. #SixSeasonsAndAMovie

All tweets are extracted from labels identifying the Day 153 Week 30.6 Year 4,547,724,074 or 2 June 2014 (Gregorian) on a local machine located in Phoenix, Arizona, North America.

[Miscellaneous] includes history, 'puff pieces' (marathons, extreme age, giving back, pets), programming, speculation (economic, weather), gatherings (protesting, memorial, meetings).


Analysis
Prevalence of aggrandizing one's own company became apparent during this research. Most organizations seem to completely disregard Science and Technology despite our era of adopting these genres. Domestically, @ABC was found to be the least politically opinionated the while @BBCNews wholly embraces it. @AP seems as concerned about entertainers as world leaders. @FOXNews touts it's religious leanings by not mentioning a single Scientific or Technological report. Despite resources abound by news wires @AP, @Reuters and @AFP, US news agencies are unconcerned about international issues. Irrelevant information and wasted bandwidth was egregious by all.
