Predicting the Future!
AGAIN 

No Agenda Thursday Show

It is ALL thanks to you.

 

Dear Producer,

Spring has sprung and your No Agenda Show asks for more support to round up March in advance of April Fools day. John’s Birthday is on April 5 and this is the one time you cancontribute $45.16 and get your name mentioned since we normally only mention those who donate over $50.

And remember you can be an individualist and contribute any amount you think is right for you by clicking here. Remember everything helps.
Not a picture of No Agenda supporters. Help keep it that way.
And how about the 75-cents-an-hour $4 a week subscription? Get one by clicking here.
Many of you have never contributed. Tell us what has to be done to get you on board.

Use the subject line: Suggestions.

Note. This is about ways to get you on board not about the show content. There is plenty of that already.
Tomorrow’s show will be another winner with the revelation that the USA has phonied-up the conflict in Syria. Here is a report that Pentagon forces are firing on CIA forces.

Besides being a hilarious event, this is something discussed and predicted on the show close to a year ago. YOU, the No Agenda listener and producer knew about this all along. The mainstream and corporate news media is now stunned by this because they do not watch or attend Congressional hearings. Be assured that your No Agenda Show will be your only source of news analysis that will always be on top of these expensive fiascos.

We Are Different

You can count on No Agenda 
to bring you the absolute best analysis. This is because you and only you support and pay for the show.

There are no commercial interests leveraging their influence which is always the case with advertising supported mainstream media including PBS.
If you want real analysis based on research and digging deeper into a story, No Agenda is your show. To keep it alive please support No Agendaany way you can. There are excellent ideas on the support page here.
Your co-hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry

PS And you can always send checks to Box 339, El Cerrito, CA 94530. Make checks payable to the No Agenda Show.
Maybe adding the puppies will help. This puppy is actually driving this car as you can see. So what is wrong with this picture?

The dog is not keeping his eyes on the road!

Time to own a yacht but not just any yacht!


Ok I'm dreaming a little, but for those looking to the future, I believe this is one product we will see a lot more of on the market.

Migaloo Private Submersible Yachts has a fleet of options available.  The main selling point, besides being able to submerse your yacht, is the fact that you can do so whenever there is stormy weather. With big seas, you simply dive!  





Top this by adding your own private island.. yes please, I'll take one of each!

DJI Phantom 4 Giveaway


The people over at BoingBoing are giving away a DJI Phantom 4

As a proud owner of a Phantom 2, I would love to be upgraded automatically--without paying for it. This new version has built in crash avoidance so there is no excuse for running in to objects. Unless of course you are purposely trying to crash by flying in to something backwards!

No Agenda-The Saturday Memo

Note from John C. Dvorak

Dear Producer,

We’re working on another holiday for you. This time it is Easter. Donations are always down for Easter and, so far, tomorrow looks no different. Please help bolster tomorrow’s show, which promises to be great because of the fascinating news stories this week. Click here to contribute any amount whatsoever knowing every bit helps.
Birthday Redux
You can also wish me a Happy Birthday with a 4-5-16 birthday donation to the No Agenda Show.That would be the ideal gift.

I’m also going to send out an email to you New Yorkers who may want to meet up while I’m in Manhattan next weekend untilApril 6. I’ll also tweet the details @therealdvorak.
Tomorrow the show will discuss the unreported massive gatherings for Bernie Sanders in the Pacific Northwest. The news media has blacked out these events and you will learn why.
NEVER TO BE SEEN ON NETWORK NEWS
Here is a pic of Sanders filling the Moda Center in Portland this week. The capacity is 20,000. There were 20,000 or more who could not get in. I'm told he filled Safeco up in Seattle too. These ridiculous crowds are actually downplayed on National TV.

The reason is obvious and you will hear about it tomorrow. Nobody will analyze this like yourNo Agenda Show.
No Agenda covers the action in Europe better than any new analysis show in the world and you’ll love tomorrow. Adam has uncovered for you yet another gem of a news item, oddity not reported elsewhere.

Make sure to listen to the show tomorrow. And thanks for the much needed continued support.
Sincerely,

PS Please mail checks and salutations to No Agenda Show, Box 339, El Cerrito CA 94530.

Big Brother Canada Update

It's been another week and things are definitely getting exciting in the house, which is a good thing because I personally was a little shocked to see no real drama with these two International players added. With Kelsey being evicted first and then learning she would have a chance at getting back in I just knew when the double eviction happened, that the second evictee would be Loveita and it was!  This is so typical in the game of Big Brother, how the tides will turn each week.  The surprise for me was when Maddy actually did something and won the HOH and then made the back door move like she did, to place Loveita on the block.  During this week's "Side Show" it was brought up how her 21 year old "immaturity" will likely be her demise and we could see Maddy going out next week. With both Sarah and Peter agreeing it was a little too early to be going against one of your own for eviction when she elected to place Loveita on the block and I would agree with them.  It was a great move however, as there is no question Loveita was playing way too hard. She has/had HOHitus, winning twice and then living in there during Joel's win. As well, no matter what Joel says that it was HIS choice to nominate two of the 'three headed snake'.. that being said it was quite apparent Loveita's words had sunk in. If he was actually thinking for himself he would realize there was an even larger snake in the fact that Maddy, Dallas and the brothers, as well as Ramsey were a larger number even though they may not have been as close... the fact that Maddy did what she did shows she is playing her own game.  

With this new 'secret room' and the 5th feed which has us feeders able to keep tabs on the two, I must say this is where I have been hanging out a lot. The fact that the two people were working against each other and now can share their true thoughts and feelings about the game, since they know only one will be going back. It most definitely works best for Jared since Loveita will be an ally if it ends up being her that goes back. Now that she knows what Kelsey knows. If it is Kelsey that goes back then Jared is going to be extremely pleased to have his partner in the game back in. Although that would also place the target squarely on his back and take the heat off of the brothers for example, it would give them another number. Not to mention the fact that Kelsey would also have all the information that was in Loveita's head.  

This secret room--great idea Big Brother, but why would you not bother to put a small bathroom in there? What a joke that they have to be escorted to a bathroom outside of the room. It makes me think this was more of an afterthought than a planned part of the game. Either that or it was an afterthought but after the house had been re-structured. Either way it is pretty tacky. And while I'm talking about production, what's with the 'locked out' wording?  "Big Brother never sleeps...go upstairs, grab a snack, take a shower".. "go upstairs?"  so does that mean Big Brother figures all the feeders are children that are stuck in the basement with their computer? Strange..   Anyway just something that made me go hmmm.

Being able to watch the feeds using the Big Brother Viewer is so much better than the website version. Giving you the ability to go back, etc. The only problem with it, is each camera feed is not in sync when you do go back so you are stuck watching/fast forward/rewind one feed at a time.  It is nice to see the two girls do get to hear the feeds every once in a while and not just stuck watching inside without hearing what is being said. Of course it does make sense as it would be a totally unfair advantage for them going back in, knowing what is being said but at least they do get to see who is talking to whom.  It's a great idea and I hope this becomes a permanent feature because it will give each houseguest the knowledge to know they may not be completely gone, as well it provides the remaining houseguests the knowledge that they may be watched by those coming back in. Although I believe most houseguests forget about who might be watching after a while.

Now, with the Aussie winning HOH this week, it should be interesting to see who he places on the block. So far this has not happened but I believe the nominations will be later today (Saturday). I think Maddy will be one and probably Dallas as I believe Tim would see this as 'tit for tat' when Raul and Kelsey were put up together and now it is time for two from the 'other side' to be put up together.  The problem for Tim doing this would be he is being depicted as being with Jared's side of the house. With Tim voting to evict Cassandra was only because he knew the numbers were there for her to stay, he wanted to not only stir up the pot but make the votes look more even. Tim may decide to go with Maddy and Ramsey or Mitch as they are people that may be in the middle.. hard to say with Tim.

With regards to the rest of the houseguests-the drama has subsided now that Loveita isn't there and that is a good thing but it should start up again once the nominations have been placed.

    The Only Show with Health Benefits

    No Agenda Thursday Show

    Your support is always needed.

     

    Dear Producer,

    The show needs to bring donations back to normal and this coincides with John’s birthday on April 5. So everyone wish him a happy birthday as a way of celebrating theNo Agenda Show. A contribution of $45.16 for 4/5/2016 should help boost the numbers for the next few weeks. Click here.

    And remember that you can contribute any amount to the future of the show byclicking here. And you can also turn any of the open donations into recurring “subscriptions.”
    In 1952, the Dvorak Family owned a Plymouth similar to this. It would be considered a lemon and the last Plymouth ever owned by anyone in the family. Chrysler Corp still laments the cars from the early 1950's as harmful to the brand. The Plymouth line was discontinued in 2001.
    There is plenty of material for tomorrow’s show with the airport and metro bombings in Brussels as well as the iPhone fiasco exhibiting two extremes on the news spectrum. The Romney-Trump-Cruz battle continues but is getting less attention. Bernie is off the radar for now as Hillary is the presumed winner.

    Make sure to listen to tomorrow’s show.
    Your co-hosts,
    John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry

    PS You can always send checks to Box 339, El Cerrito, CA 94530. Make checks payable to the No Agenda Show.

    Avast Safezone Browser


    Avast has been my recommended "free" antivirus program for years. It is still by far, the fastest, or I should say "less intrusive" antivirus program on the market that simply won't interfere with your normal day to day computing.. that being said, there are a number of things that need to be done in order for you to actually enjoy this product without wanting to chuck it and your computer from the rooftop! 

    It is Free but then again, NOTHING on the internet is truly free. It wasn't back in 2013 either!  You will pay for it in some way, whether that be through a banner advertisement that runs within the program, or you get annoying nag screens every once in a while tempting you to upgrade to the pro version with "special deals" they make available.   In general these are nothing more than nag screens that you can close. However the latest tactic is to install the software by default or automatically during a normal program/virus definition update and,  upon restarting of your computer you are now greeted with a new icon on your desktop. The most recent would be the Avast Safezone Browser.. which is CRAP!  Just like two thirds of the available software Avast makes available upon installation, only 3 items are really what you need, as well, they are truly the only "free" items you will get to use all the time. Everything else is nothing more than Trialware and then after the trial period is up you are nagged in a big way to pay up. In fact they make it so damn difficult, if you let it go that far down the road, that you will most likely end up completely uninstalling Avast, restarting your computer and then reinstalling it just to get it to work in the 'free mode' once again.  

    The key here is to always choose CUSTOM install when you start. Then simply de-select EVERYTHING except the first three items which would be:

    "File Shield", "Web Shield" and "Mail Shield".  Everything else is only going to slow your computer down and/or is trialware and you will eventually have to pay up for this and you don't want to, even if it sounds like a good idea because most everything else is already covered by your operating system or by things like the Chrome web browser.

    If you are unsure as to what the current status is of your Avast, you can simply go to the add/remove programs and click CHANGE on the AVAST program. Then choose MODIFY when the program opens and there you will see the window above.

    One final thing to note, if you visit the Avast website FAQ's about the Safezone Browser, of course it will make it sound so great and will even say that it is not installed by default and won't be working if you don't pay but that is simply not the case. The trick with any software is to get the people using it and then make it so that they think they can't live without it.  A little website started out this identical way by the name of Facebook. it is free too.. and oh by the way, I've learned that there is money owed to me by someone in Africa but I first have to send money in order to reap my big reward.. what do you think should I get out my wallet? Come on people, stop falling for this crap!
