True - Hope Springs Eternal

Trump offers Democrat congratulationsI woke up to hope for the first time in a while this morning – a different America than I’ve experienced in the last year and it wasn’t just because the people of Alabama decided not to elect a racist who despises blacks, gays, and Muslims – oh and is accused of being a serial pedophile.
Sure that was part of it, but in the last few days I admit I’ve been waking up more hopeful because of several actions. Looking beyond the daily Twitter litter, I believe President Trump is part of this hope, as is Joe Biden, the Democrats and the Republicans.
For those who are looking for the curve ball, that’s not what this is about – well keep your eye on the ball just the same.

Local firm expands to help federal agencies

  • Published in Local

 

Bethesda-based InfoZen has hired 120 employees in the past 12 months and expanded its workspace for developing software to move, manage, store and protect massive databases for key federal agencies.

A key to its recent expansion has been a $208 million contract the firm won in 2016 to work with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, part of the Department of Homeland Security, said Susan Sparks, deputy program manager for the company’s work on the contract.

The company said it has more than doubled its annual revenue since 2015. Sparks said it expects to keep hiring and continue on its strong recent growth trajectory.

He blinded me with Science double talk folks

Science March 4

People who are convinced of the absolute righteousness of their single cause on any issue are as enjoyable to have a conversation with as discussing the actuary table with an insurance agent.
It’s a long, slow boring march into the obvious with the chance of being distracted by the obtuse and miscellaneous.
There are few exceptions to this rule. Zealots of any brand, whether religious or otherwise are among the least enjoyable people to be around on the planet.
Politicians in Washington D.C. are the poster children for this sentiment – and I care little if we’re discussing the far left or far right.
This past weekend scientists marched for common sense in several cities across the country – not convinced of the righteousness of a single cause – but convinced the country shouldn’t abandon the process of scientific research – you know the research which in the past has given us every technological, medical and other advance we hold dear to our heart.

Meet my friend Saj - a True American

Saj  Paul Schwartz

I am proud to call Dr. Sajjad H. Durrani my friend. While some of my friends, acquaintances and former co-workers for reasons I do not fully understand vote for candidates hell-bent on reducing retirement benefits of federal employees and retirees, Saj and I work feverishly on behalf of NARFE, National Active and Retired Federal Employees, to protect the earned benefits of federal employees and retirees and seniors in general!

Saj immigrated to the United States in 1959 and served in a multitude of impressive positions as an electrical engineer for such companies as General Electric, COMSAT Labs, RCA and Operations Research to name just a few.

The Donald 47 years later

kp1299em-1 thumbIn the last two days our offices have been swamped with emails, tweets and Facebook posts dedicated to the GOP National Convention.
I’ve tried real hard to be angry, bored, or anything resembling interested in the faux issues being discussed by those who’ve sent me these communiqués.
More often than not they are trivial at best and wildly uninformed.
