How AI Will be a Game Changer For Education Systems

(Gloucestercitynews.net)(June 4, 2020)--Since the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI), the world has experienced a vast number of disruptions across several of its sectors. Industries, including manufacturing, marketing, education, and advertising, have implemented the use of AI over the last few years. Also, the health industry is not left out of the picture as a lot of advances have been made on healthcare through the use of AI. “Education is a crucial part of everyone's life”, says Neil Davies, a career expert from Craft Resumes. With the special optimization of resources offered by AI, schools can provide students with a more... Read more →

Digestive Enzymes vs Probiotics Review – Which is the Best Supplement to Take

(Gloucestercitynews.net)(June 4, 2020)--There are quite some similarities between digestive enzymes and probiotics. They carry out functions that are quite complementary. Regardless of these similarities,, digestive enzymes and probiotics still differ very markedly and carry out their functions in different ways. Digestive enzymes are basically substances in the body that play a role in the breakdown of food. Probiotics, on the other hand, are good bacteria which play a role in keeping your gut healthy. Although these two substances have major differences, they work hand in hand. What exactly are Digestive Enzymes? In their simplest form, digestive enzymes are chains of... Read more →


10 Ways You Can Bring Your Family Closer Together

Gloucestercitynews.net(January 20, 2020)--Your family is the cornerstone of your life. It’s a unit that’s always there for you when you’re down, struggling at work, or just in need of some socialization. While it isn’t always true that “blood is thicker than water”, your family is predetermined for you and can’t be changed, so getting along with them is advantageous to you. With that said, being close with your family - and accommodating their foibles - isn’t always easy. Here are ten ways you can become closer to your family. 1.

Chris Freind: Government licensing illegal activity now | cnbnews.net

By Chris Freind, Delaware County Daily Times Since millions of Americans enjoy crystal meth, it only seems appropriate that the government start doling it out freely. After all, doing so would provide for users’ continued pleasure while empowering them to expect more entitlements — the law be damned. Sound crazy? Can’t imagine government, the creator and enforcer of laws, sanctioning illegal activities? Think again. It happens every day when those who are not in this country legally are blatantly coddled and bestowed “rights” and privileges by a government that is supposed to be upholding the law, aka arresting and deporting...

Chris Freind: Labor Day? Why Union Membership is 'Laboring'

By CHRIS FREIND Times Columnist Click to enlarge ( Wednesday, September 4) -- Talk about freeloading. The nine of 10 Americans who aren’t part of organized labor still took full advantage of Labor Day, that hallowed holiday honoring unions, aka “the working class.” And since those 90 percent aren’t considered “working people” (meaning they must not work) every day is clearly a holiday for them. So relaxing on Labor Day just seems like sticking it to the unions. What else is new? Public-sector unions are seeing their salaries, benefits and pensions under constant threat of reform from dastardly Republicans trying... Read more →


Freindly Fire: Riley Cooper, Anthony Weiner, enough already! | cnbnews.net

related FREINDLY FIRE By CHRIS FREIND Philadelphia Eagle Riley Cooper really stepped in it. He uttered one of the most vile, racist, and derogatory slurs out there, one that not only hurts a particular ethnic group, but “…. dampens the aspirations of (its) people.” And here’s the thing. I guarantee Cooper said this word many, many more times than just once. No amount of sensitivity training will prevent him from saying it again. And that’s the way it should be, for he is not alone, as millions from New York to Dallas to yes, even Washington, utter this word around... Read more →


Chris Freind: Seeing red over Indian nickname debate

related FREINDLY FIRE By CHRIS FREIND Times Columnist Life is good. Summer is in full swing, the Trayvon/Zimmerman soap opera is finally fading away, government is probably reading only half our emails now, and the excitement of football is in the air. Most important, though, is that America apparently has solved all of its problems. Otherwise, how could you possibly explain the fact that a cadre of congressman — both Republican and Democrat — recently sent a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, every league team, and Redskins sponsor FedEx urging them — demanding, actually...

Chris Freind: No cheers for Gov. Corbett in alcohol sting

related FREINDLY FIRE By CHRIS FREIND Times Columnist The season has finally arrived! Memorial Day weekend ushered in the unofficial start of summer when people relax with family and friends, enjoying what little leisure time is left in America. But Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett made it abundantly clear he wasn’t interested in that season. For him, it was all about making it Open Season — on Pennsylvanians. In a move that defies every ounce of common sense for a governor touting the lowest popularity in the nation, Corbett had his state police slip across the border over the weekend to... Read more →


*If Nutter’s Stupidity Were Taxed, Philly Would Be Rich

related FREINDLY FIRE BY CHRIS FREIND CNBNEWS.net I swore I was done. I promised I would never waste another column writing about how pathetic Philadelphia is. And how its complacent residents and businessmen get exactly what they deserve. Washing my hands of all things Philly, I pledged, most importantly, to never again comment on Michael Nutter, who is, without a doubt, America’s most obtuse, clueless and excruciatingly boring mayor. But I failed. It is simply impossible not to rip into Tweedle Dee and his latest efforts to drive the final stake into the heart of a once-great city by trying... Read more →


Freind: Demonizing Toomey on guns is shooting blanks | cnbnews. net

related FREINDLY FIRE By CHRIS FREIND Click to enlarge (cnbnews.net)Well, that didn’t take long. Smart money said it would have taken half of Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey’s term before the Wacky Wing of the Republican Party put him in their crosshairs. Instead, it only took two years for them to bend him over the (gun) barrel. And what produced such vitriol from a loud but ultimately small segment of the Republican base? What did Toomey do that saw him decried as another “Benedict Arlen” — an unflattering reference to longtime liberal GOP Sen. Arlen Specter? He thinks background checks for... Read more →


Iron Lady Thatcher: Last From A Great Era

related FREINDLY FIRE BY CHRISTOPHER FREIND (cnbnews.net) There is a fascinating book by Irving Stone entitled, They Also Ran, the story of men defeated for the presidency. Stone, an historian, also analyzes the races to determine if the people chose wisely. Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Photo credit: Wikipedia) It’s a fascinating concept, as readers are left pondering how history may have been altered had there been a different outcome. The opposite also holds true --- how history would have changed had the winner not been victorious. Reflecting on the the passing of England’s Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, it... Read more →


Were Corbett, Legislature Drunk Writing Liquor Bill?

related FREINDLY FIRE READ PART ONE By Christopher Freind Part 2 of 2 on the state’s liquor battle “I don’t know...he’s either very smart or very dumb.” ---Quint in Jaws, trying to figure out the shark. (CNBNews.net)Quint’s famous line perfectly sums up both Governor Tom Corbett and the Republican-controlled House as they push their liquor privatization bill. They’re either very smart, trying to pull a fast one on Pennsylvanians who expect better selection and lower prices (which they know cannot happen with this bill). Or they’re very dumb, actually believing the bill they’re peddling will actually accomplish those things. Here’s... Read more →


Why PA’s Liquor Stores Need To Be Privatized

related FREINDLY FIRE By Christopher Freind Part 1 of 2 on the state’s liquor battle (CNBNews.net) In 2010, Governor Tom Corbett was elected by a wide margin, in large part because of his insistence that the state-controlled liquor system be privatized --- an issue on which he was absolutely correct. Despite that being a cornerstone of his campaign, nothing was accomplished during his first two years, even though he enjoyed historic Republican majorities in both legislative chambers. Since privatizing liquor is one of the few issues that enjoys a large consensus, it’s baffling why it took so long for the... Read more →


Chris Freind: It’s time to pull the troops out of South Korea | delcotimes.com

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 By CHRIS FREIND Times Columnist So the North Koreans have declared a state of war against South Korea and, by extension, the United States. One question: Who cares? Why are we so up in arms — literally — about this situation? And why should we be the least bit worried about some young punk’s bellicose rhetoric to attack the U.S., since more often than not, his missiles travel 6 feet before blowing up on the launchpad? As a matter of fact, it’s a good thing North Korea’s boisterous 30-year-old leader, Kim Jong-un, has been making so... Read more →


Op-Ed: Will New Pope Face “Age Old” Problem?

related FREINDLY FIRE BY CHRISTOPHER FREIND (cnbnews.net)Who says the Catholic Church can’t change? By electing Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina, the conclave of Cardinals just made history. The list of “firsts” is impressive: -First Pope from the Americas; Pope Francis Portrait Painting (Photo credit: faithmouse) -First non-European in 1,200 years; -First Latin American pontiff; -First to take the name Francis. Most amazing, he’s the first non-Catholic pope. He’s a Jesuit. ***** Jokes aside, the selection of Bergoglio is an interesting choice. His accomplishments are significant, from modernizing the Argentinian Church to having the guts to clash with President Cristina Fernandez on... Read more →


Op-Ed: A Cutting Edge Idea: Slash TSA Knife Policy

related FREINDLY FIRE BY CHRISTOPHER FREIND (cnbnews.net)If the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) could compete for an Emmy, it would definitely be a winner. Its “Security Theatre” has become a cutting-edge soap opera, replete with comedy, drama and ultimately, tragedy. And the latest episode is making the biggest headlines yet. The TSA has sliced and diced a prior position, and is now permitting passengers to carry knives onto planes. Yes. Knives. Those sharp, pointy things that can puncture a pilot’s jugular in a heartbeat, make flight attendants talk like Stephen Hawking, and create total pandemonium at 35,000 feet. If so many...

CNBNEWS Op-Ed: Pope Resigning Is Miracle For Church

RELATED FREINDLY FIRE BY CHRISTOPHER FREIND (cnbnews.net)Thank God for small miracles. Or, in this case, huge ones. The decision of Pope Benedict XVI to step down --- the first resignation in 600 years and only the fourth in history --- has given the Catholic Church an unprecedented opportunity to save itself. And since the eleventh hour is upon the Church, the Pope’s action could not have come at a better time. Whether the conclave of Cardinals takes advantage of this blessing or blows it all to hell remains to be seen. As one of the Catholic faithful, I desperately want... Read more →


Op-Ed: Sue The NFL For Concussions? Get Your Head Examined! | cnbnews.net

RELATED FREINDLY FIRE BY CHRISTOPHER FREIND cnbnews.net Now that the Super Bowl is over, the really big game begins. And it’s going to be a head-knocker . On one side we have the raiders. No, not Oakland, but the Trial Lawyers, who delight Christopher Friend in raiding everything good and decent in America. They are representing former NFL players in their fight against the evil empire, a.k.a. the National Football League. At stake? Upwards of ten billion dollars, and possibly, the existence of the NFL itself. And what is the nerve center of this federal lawsuit, filed in Philadelphia, that... Read more →

Corbett’s Penn State Folly: Suing NCAA Will Not Save Him

Related: FREINDLY FIRE: The Tom And Jerry Comedy Show Continues BY CHRISTOPHER FREIND July of 2012 was notable for several reasons: the hottest month on record, both Christopher Friend parties gearing up for the presidential campaign, and the voluntarily acceptance of harsh NCAA sanctions by the Penn State Board of Trustees, which includes Governor Tom Corbett. A half -year later, all have evolved predictably: it’s cold, the President won, and Corbett has flip-flopped in an ill-fated attempt to bolster his image in the PSU/Jerry Sandusky scandal. The Tom and Jerry Show --- a tragic comedy --- just keeps getting better.... Read more →
