Copyrights, patents and Cochlear Implants
Cars of beauty: This '37 Ford was new when my girl discovered America! Both of 'em beauties!
For Monday, today’s stuff:
I know I mentally live under a rock and do not understand the world today, i.e. ‘jailin’’. I have a tough time getting around or working with my ‘pants on the ground’, so why someone would choose to walk ‘straddle-legged’ or continually pulling their pants up, I will not understand.
So I just learned why ‘at times’ when going to a comment or a pointer sent to me I see ‘subject no longer available’ or ‘removed, contents copyrighted’. The sweet ‘TT’ ( http://taryterre.blogspot.com/ ) put a cute parody on her blog of the Kentucky Derby and it was removed. Fortunately I got to see it before it was removed.
I just got this one from Susan Kane's blog....
As I said earlier, for some reason I am not exposed to the world as a whole since losing my hearing. I was under the impression when a person used ‘youtube’ they wanted exposure and would want it reposted forever, LOL.
Just the mention of the Kentucky Derby sent my mind back to trips to/thru Kentucky. My first trip I was about 5 yrs old. I loved seeing the horses in the field and was sure I saw my hero horse,”Man-O-War”, out there several times. LOL
Next to the last time we went we camped at or near The Kentucky Horse Park, where ‘Man-O-War is buried. That was quite an experience for someone who loves horses and their history.
The last visit was not for horses, but to visit a blogging friend, ‘Ora.’ We learned thru her blog she had a Cochlear implant. We went to learn, since I was then a candidate for the implant.
That girl and her hubby are a HOOT! I learned so much about the implant; I went ahead and am happy I did. But like many things in life, the visit brought more than good advice. We were treated to some of the BEST life stories I can remember. Both Ora and her hubby Mixon (retired Army Chaplain) are such a joy to know.
Interesting info: One of Sherry’s classmates, Sam, is a professor at Duke. He saw my implants (which are obvious to the most casual observer) and talked to me at a class reunion. The inventor of the implant, friend of his, DID NOT patent it. The technology is available to anyone who wants to use it. I thought, how giving a person like that is, passing up millions $ for the human race.
