Dear Producers,
On the Thursday show we discuss the sudden emergence of the Ebola virus as a now serious issue in Africa, especially after the lethal virus killed most of the health care workers and experts who attempted to treat others. This can easily spiral out of control. Meanwhile, the news media focuses on Gaza and Putin.
 

EBOLA SITES. The US Government and News Pundits tell us how ISIS will be in the USA any minute, but say nothing about this?

Many believe this virus was created in the same lab that allegedly came up with AIDS. We will discuss three things you do not know about Ebola on tomorrow’s show. Pleasehelp us continue this kind of unique programming, based on research and perspectives you will never get from any mainstream media or even alternative media outlets. This incredibly valuable material is only on your No Agenda Show. Contribute totomorrow’s show by clicking here. It’s easy.
 

For endless Ukraine links click on map.
 
Another theme tomorrow will be the gullibility of the American public as we discuss the Ukraine and Gaza situations with updates as well as other news from Africa. Do not miss this show.

Your co-hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry

Drone Almost Blocks California Firefighting Planes

This is NOT news.. the 'drone' did NOT block anything and if you bother to read the story, the pilot of the unit stopped flying the moment he was told to by authorities. 

It is for this type of new reporting that gives these quadcopters a bad name and I'm sick of it!

    No Agenda-The Saturday Memo

    Dear Producer,
    What makes your No Agenda Show the best podcast in the universe? Have you ever wondered? It amounts to focus. A lot of work goes into the show and a lot of hours are spent researching then producing a podcast with meaning. 

     

    The show has a large dedicated audience that is served by the show with meaningful and valuable information designed to help the audience understand what is really going on around them. This is more important than ever because right now a combination of propaganda and superficial infotainment dished out by the most shallow of presenters dominates all media.
     

    I'm in advertising. What can I say?

    No Agenda is an island of sanity while remaining entertaining and pertinent. This is only accomplished with your support. We accept no advertising. Advertising kills all objectivity wherever it appears. Advertising has become the tail that wags the media dog. It’s has become the corrupting influence especially in the mainstream media, but permeates everything including podcasting. That is why it is important for you to keep supporting your No Agenda Show in any way you can. The support page is here and the easy to use PayPal page is here. Donate today.
     

    Really? Can I get some actual water?

    During the summer months it is more important than ever to continue your support. A lot of people take real vacations and that means listenership will always be down along with contributions. We still need your help and continued support in the months ahead.
     

    No Agenda Listeners on Vacation

    Your co-host,

    John C. Dvorak

    Just wait for that left hook.

    Dear Producer,
    Your No Agenda Show did it again with the most impressive deconstruction of the downed Malaysian airline you will hear anywhere by anyone. Everyone hopes this will get the fence-sitters who have not contributed to the show’s production to finally do so.Click here today and donate. How about contributing your temperature? 

     

    Apparently these tracks are not used much

    More information is coming out about the airline crash which, because of the circumstances and whereabouts of the crash site, has become a nightmare. This should continue for weeks. The US State Department is trying to get the world to blame Russia in ways that allows for universal sanctions against Gazprom, with little luck. Nothing is working.
     

    Meanwhile, the odd battle between the Israelis and the Gaza/Hamas martyrs is portrayed in the most simple of black and white narratives. Listeners want an explanation more reasonable than what is coming from the mainstream media. No Agenda is working on it. You will be the first to know, as always. You can be sure it is not the simplistic nonsense coming from TV.
     

    Yeah, this looks safe

    The slow summer months are being reflected in the lackluster donations which happen every year at this time. It is always disheartening when it happens. Cheer everyone up by visiting the support page and helping support the No Agenda Show –your guardians of reality.

    Back to CSPAN!

    Chrome browser has been DRAINING PC batteries for YEARS

    Just another negative ad campaign, I am sure, by Microsoft, to promote IE browser. The hilarious thing about this is the simple fact that Chrome is so much faster. So if it were to be using more battery life, per search you would find you can search and get results about 3 to 5 times faster than if you were to use IE therefore you get more productivity by using Chrome. If you are running on battery power then so-be-it, you will run out of power at some point regardless of what you are doing on your computer but from a productivity point of view, if you strictly limited your work to Browser use than you are going to get 5 times more work done in the life of your battery using Chrome!

    Microsoft layoffs: 18K jobs to be cut

    In my opinion the writing was on the wall when Windows 8 first came out and was so unsuccessful. Or at least a lot less than the advertising hype that was given to the product.   This is a serious problem and why big businesses should be regulated more than they currently are. With this many job cuts which is half the size of many small towns in America, it would pretty devastating.

    Producers,
    A return to the non-mobile template after two attempts to use the mobile compatible template returned our mailing numbers to normal. In the meantime, your No Agenda Show needs to return to normal contribution levels from you, the producers. Pleasehelp us for tomorrow's show with an important and generous contribution of any amount by clicking here.



    The news for the week is already out-of-control with nonsense stories dominating the media including the fishy customer-service phone call starring Ryan Block and an unknown customer service rep from Comcast. Also Charlie Sheen is back in the news with some dubious YouTube video? Agh.

    You can see why you and others turn to the No Agenda Show for analysis of important news that will affect your life in real ways.



    Meanwhile, the back-and-forth shelling continues between Gaza and Israel -- all apparently designed to make one country look particularly bad at the expense of too many dead civilians.


    I poke your eyes!!

    One story that should make you pause is this headline: Time Warner Shares Surge after Rebuffing Murdoch Bid. This is disconcerting because the $80 billion deal should be disallowed as anti-competitive. But that doesn’t even enter the conversation as it appears that the entire cable business is headed to one large monopoly over the next few years.

    And that weird customer service conversation being highlighted by the network news will go like this:

    Customer: I want to quit my account with Comcast.
    Comcast: Can’t do it. By law you have to keep the account.


    Done! Much shorter and snappier.

    There are many hot topics to be covered on tomorrow’s show. Keep supporting the show as the show just gets better and better. Hit the support page by clicking here.

    Pilots flying with cameras in cockpit

    I really do not see what the dilemma is all about. The cockpit of any commercial airline is nothing more than a place of work for the employee. Any other business has the right to have security cameras in the office therefore why should the cockpit be any different.  Unfortunately this is just one more example of "if you have nothing to hide then what is the problem" mentality gone awry, in my honest opinion.

    This would have never happened if Steve was still alive!  This is just one more obvious point that Apple is no longer a bleeding edge tech company.
