This is about the size of computers the year after I graduated from High School.


This is about the size of computers the year after I graduated from High School. I have written in the Baltimore Sun about the early days of computers, I should dig that story up and republish it. It still makes me smile.

Services at Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster Md are cancelled for Sunday February 22, 2015

According to an alert released by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS) early Saturday evening, February 21, 2015, “Hazardous road conditions exist due to winter storm - stay off the roads to allow the crews to clear them and to allow emergency providers to respond during this time. Check in on family, friends, and neighbors - especially the elderly or disabled. Keep devices charged to follow weather and local emergency information. Be cautious when shoveling snow to avoid over exertion.”

Out of an abundance of caution, Grace Lutheran Church at 21 Carroll Street in Westminster Md., cancelled all services and Christian education on both Saturday evening and on Sunday, February 22, 2015.


Please join us for worship this coming Wednesday at 7 p.m. with soup at 6! Stay safe!

"È la stampa, bellezza. E tu non ci puoi fare un bel niente!"

Ed Hutcheson: It's not enough anymore to give 'em just news. They want comics, contests, puzzles. They want to know how to bake a cake, win friends, and influence the future. Ergo, horoscopes, tips on the horses, interpretation of dreams so they can win on the numbers lottery. And, if they accidentally stumble on the first page... news!



Jim Cleary: A journalist makes himself the hero of the story. A reporter is only a witness. “Deadline U.S.A.” 1952. #partylikeajournalist

On September 29, 2011, Craig Steves wrote on YouTube, “Bob Greene of the Chicago Tribune has called this the best journalism movie ever made. He is absolutely right.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kn_Y9ZU8hY8

If you are interested in art movies, see Citizen Kane. If you are interested in screwball comedy, check out His Girl Friday. If it's history you're after, watch All the Presidents Men. If you want to see a classic journalism movie, rent one of the multiple versions of The Front Page.

But if you want to see a movie that actually shows you what life is like inside a newsroom, how reporters work together to get a story, and how "the story" is not always about the big expose but sometimes just about getting the little details right, this is your movie.

You can also watch Ron Howard's The Paper, but it's a pale imitation of this movie.

The film brings up, a mere 53 years ago, issues that are relevant today - the tabloids versus real, factual news, and the meaning of a free press. These debates continue today, but unfortunately, it seems that the tabloid type of journalism is winning. As for a free press - our press might be freer than many, but it isn't entirely free. As anyone who lost money in the great savings and loan scandal can tell you, important stories disappear from the front pages all the time.


Bogart's strong performance is the engine that keeps this film going, and there's a nice performance by Kim Hunter as his ex-wife. Deadline USA reminds us of the good old days, when you could believe what you read in the New York Times.”

Credit Cards » Beware Of Currency Conversion Fees

If you do a lot of international traveling, you've probably been stung by an unpleasant surprise lurking at the bottom of your bank statement or credit card bill: a currency conversion fee. While the CARD Act has done plenty to reduce sometimes exorbitant credit card fees, it left currency conversion fees untouched, ensuring travelers will have at least one unpleasant vacation memory.


Consult this chart to see the fees charged by the largest U.S. credit card issuers. http://www.bankrate.com/finance/credit-cards/beware-of-currency-conversion-fees.aspx

ATM withdrawal: None for online accounts, $1.50 for some accounts opened in bank branches

Rick Steves’ Europe: Card Fees (and How to Avoid Them)




Travelers returning from Europe often open their mail to discover they paid more for their trip than they thought they had. Over the last decade, banks have dramatically increased their fees for overseas transactions. While these fees are legal, they’re basically a slimy way for credit-card companies to wring a few more dollars out of their customers.

[…]

So, how can a smart traveler avoid — or at least reduce — these fees? Here are a few suggestions.

[…]

If you’re getting a bad deal, get a new card. Some companies offer lower international fees than others — and some don’t charge any at all. If you’re going on a long trip, do some research and consider taking out a card just for international purchases. Capital One has a particularly good reputation for no-fee international transactions on both its credit cards and its debit cards linked to a checking account. Most credit unions have low-to-no international transaction fees. Bankrate has a good comparison chart of major credit cards and their currency-conversion fees.

[…]


Avoid dynamic currency conversion (DCC). Some European merchants — capitalizing on the fact that many Americans are intimidated by unusual currencies — cheerfully charge you for converting their prices to dollars before running your credit card.
