According to New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, shooter Payton Gendron (18 years old) , a graduation student from Susquehanna Valley High School, told his teacher last year that he wanted to murder and committed suicide after the graduation! 

The teacher told the cops next day and on June 8, 2021, the state police interviewed Gendron and took him to a hospital, where he underwent a psychiatric evaluation but he was released! 

Then, Gendron fell off investigators’ radar and he was not on the “red flag list” of people who have threats of violence! 

As a result, when Gendron tried to buy a Bushmaster semiautomatic from a dealer in Endicott, New York in this year, his background check came up clean! This is a ridiculous mistake! 

The NY governor had ordered an investigation into this case: How a person who had a threat history and was able to purchase an assault rifle!?

Opinion: we want to know how and why too!

Mr Romer told the court, "For his initial visits, I would receive a call from Ms. Heard who would tell me to give Mr. Musk access to the garage for the building and then send him up to the penthouse when Depp wasn't there.”

5. On April 21 of 2016, Depp failed to show up on time for Heard's birthday party.

WHO has given out a warning statement yesterday that several countries with big populations are hiding the real mortality rate of covid19 so it is hard to analysis the efficiency of the vaccine due to the incomplete information  of collected data!  

Due to political reason, at least eleven countries are hiding the real mortality rate of covid19 which are including Egypt(11x), India(10x), Pakistan(8x), Indonesia(7x), Bangladesh(5x), Bolivia(4x), Serbia(4x), Kazakstan(4x), Philippines(3x), Russia(10x) and China PRC(10x)! 

Indian government reported around 481,000 Covid deaths between 1/12020 and 12/1/2021, but the WHO believed that the figure could be nearly 10 times as reported! They suggested that the mortality number in India contributed to a third of Covid deaths globally. It is estimated that nearly 4 million people in India have died because of Covid-19, but India's government has rejected the figure.

This phenomenon applies to Russia and China PRC too! The difference of misinformation between India and the dictatorial countries is the former covering truth due to the poor management and the latter covering the truth due to the political reasons!

According to MS Outlook service, Exchange Online no longer supports use of TLS1.0 and TLS1.1 in the service as of October 2020. This change is due to security and compliance requirements for our service. While no longer supported, outlook servers still allow clients to use those older versions of TLS when connecting to the SMTP AUTH endpoint (smtp.office365.com). In 2022, they plan to completely disable those older TLS versions to secure our customers and meet those security and compliance requirements. However, due to significant usage, they have created an opt in endpoint that legacy clients can use with TLS1.0 and TLS1.1. Note that this endpoint is not available in GCC, GCC-High, or DoD environments that have legacy TLS permanently turned off.


Possible Solutions and Work Around:

A. You change the end-point server to "smtp-legacy.office365.com" because the "smtp.office365.com" will no longer working.
            
            MailMessage mail_message = new MailMessage();
            mail_message.From = new MailAddress(k_business_email.ToString());
            mail_message.To.Add(new MailAddress(p_email));
   
            mail_message.Subject = p_subject;
            mail_message.Body = p_body;
            mail_message.IsBodyHtml = true;
            //
            SmtpClient smtp_client = new SmtpClient();
            smtp_client.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
            smtp_client.Host = "smtp-legacy.office365.com"; 
            smtp_client.Port = 587;
            smtp_client.UseDefaultCredentials = false;        
            smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("user_id", "password");
            smtp_client.EnableSsl = true;

B.  Change your email server on "Exchange Admin Center". 
       1. Login in your office account. 
       2. Go to admin page "https://admin.exchange.microsoft.com/". select "Settings", then select "Mail Flow", 

       3. Check the checkbox "Turn on use of legacy TLS client". 



In this way, it will allow you to continue using the previous version of SMTP email service.

Walt Disney World is the primary landowner of Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista, it is solely responsible for paying the cost of providing municipal services like power, water, roads and fire protection.

With this status, Disney was able to build roads and buildings and provide services without asking for the permission of a county government.

When the entire democracy world was condemning the Russian invasion in Ukraine except India and other several countries ! In this week, Indian government announced that it would continue buying oil from Russia despite the sanction on Russia by western countries! Russia was offering more oil to India at a discount of as much as $35 a barrel on prices before the war, 

On Thursday, Indian foreign minister Sitharaman relied to media, “I would put my energy security first. If the fuel is available at a discount, why shouldn’t I buy it?” . This comments came in the backdrop of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s visited to the country yesterday. 

Opinion: Indian government is embarrassing the entire democracy countries! Tolerance for the invasion and  illegal war equals to complicity of the war criminals! Indian government is the complicity of war criminal Putin!

IOS browser like Safari has its CSS style for website displaying and it auto changes the original CSS of the websites so your website may look little different from what its original. The most controversial point is the input text box and text area. For example, the words on the input text area are gray out and the backgorund color is gay out too so it is hard to read. The solution is to disable IOS style on your CSS file manually.


input:disabled, textarea:disabled, input:disabled::placeholder, textarea:disabled::placeholder

 -webkit-text-fill-color: currentcolor;  
 opacity: 1; /* 2. correct opacity on iOS */

}

Issue is resolved!

If your MS word 2007 suddenly did not display images, then the cause of the issue is the "Show picture placeholders" setting on the Application.


To disable the placeholders, do the following steps below:
1. Open Microsoft Word 2007 and click the "Office Button" at the top left of Microsoft Word.
2. Go to "Word Options" and then "Advanced".


3. Scroll down to "Show document content" ,  Uncheck “Show picture placeholders”.
This is it. 

Now you should be able to see the images in the Word Document.

This is very interesting to me. If I defined a table's column data type as a "bigint" in the SQL database, then on the front-end c# code I assigned an "int" to the field variable for the column. It will show up a mysterious error: Specified cast is not valid!

C# Code:
Int my_id = 4458;   
       
var matched_id = (from data_row in dt_all_replies.AsEnumerable()                            
where (data_row.Field<Int>("blog_comment_id") == my_id)                             
select new { l_name = data_row.Field<String>("m_first_name") + " " + data_row.Field<String>("m_last_name") }).First(); 


Now, I change the Variable to be Int64 then It works well. Wow. This is the LINQ stuff. I was kind of shocked.

C# Code:
Int64 my_id = 4458;   
       
var matched_id = (from data_row in dt_all_replies.AsEnumerable()                            
where (data_row.Field<Int64>("blog_comment_id") == my_id)                             
select new { l_name = data_row.Field<String>("m_first_name") + " " + data_row.Field<String>("m_last_name") }).First(); 


lol. It is data type sensitive!!! Never Mind!

Polar bear Putin though president Zelensky would flee to overseas during the invasion but they were wrong! They had a wrong estimation! 😂. 

They also think they could take down Kyiv within 48 hours but now 14 days are passed and they still can not get close to the city and will likely be trapping in the bloody war swamp! 

A wrong estimation costs a tremendous price of Russian economy and livelihood as it faces an international sanction now! 

You pay for what you did! Fair enough!

Now it is a pay day! It will pay more in the future! Russian should say “thank you” to Putin for his “outstanding job”!
