After Trump Disrespected A Fallen Soldier, A GoFundMe Page Raised Over $400K For The Soldier’s Children

No single gesture can heal the broken hearts in the family of a fallen soldier. But a call of condolences from the president can be a reminder of the importance of their lost family member’s service and a show of support from the country at large.

Sadly, after a call from President Donald Trump, the family of Sgt. La David T. Johnson has been forced to endure even more heartbreak. According to the Pentagon, the 25-year-old Green Beret was killed after being ambushed by ISIS militants in Niger.

Johnson has two children, ages 2 and 6, and his widow, Myeshia Johnson, is pregnant with a third child. 

On Tuesday, Trump called Myeshia and other members of Johnson’s family, and Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Florida) listened in on the conference call. According to Wilson, Trump told Johnson her husband “knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurt.” Trump’s flippant remark had Johnson in tears. When she hung up the phone, Johnson turned to Wilson and said, “He didn’t even remember his name.”

Of course, Trump denied the reports as fake news.

While the president can’t be bothered to show support for the family of a fallen soldier, Americans everywhere are taking up slack by donating to a GoFundMe page set up for Johnson’s children that aims to raise money for the children’s college education. It started with a goal of $5,000 but — after quickly bringing in more than $400,000 — the new goal is $1 million. The fund was set up by Wilson’s 5,000 Role Models of Excellence Program.

Deze windmolen maakt direct waterstof uit elektriciteit
Een consortium van waterstofleverancier Hygro, windmolenbouwer Lagerwey en onderzoeksinstituut ECN gaat in de Wieringermeer een windmolen neerzetten die elektriciteit direct omzet in waterstof. Hierop moeten vanaf 2019 tot honderd vrachtwagens gaan rijden. Volgens de initiatiefnemers is de waterstofmolen wereldwijd de eerste in zijn soort. Via een proces van elektrolyse wordt water met behulp van de gewonnen elektriciteit in de molen omgezet in waterstof en zuurstof. De waterstof...

Netflix to spend $8 billion in programming next year

Netflix to spend $8 billion in programming next year

There's no bigger player in the streaming TV and movies scene than Netflix – no matter how much you want it YouTube. This year the streaming giant will spend approximately $6 billion in programming, only to increase the spending by quite a margin in 2018.

According to Bloomberg, Netflix is going to up the game another 33% in 2018 bringing the total program spending to a whopping $8 billion. This obviously means that there will be tons of new and popular returning TV shows, host of exciting documentaries as well as record number of original movies.

Netflix's content chief Ted Sarandos told in an investor call that Netflix will release 80 original movies next year, more than three biggest Hollywood studios (Disney, Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures) combined. Not every single one of them, or even most, are big budget blockbuster type of movies but there are those too.

In addition to increasing the content altogether, Netflix has focused their efforts in few specific niches. The upcoming year will bring along Netflix's first ever Danish show (The Rain, a post-apocalyptic adventure) as well as its first Swedish series (Quicksand, a suspenseful crime drama) among other foreign content. This year the company released their first Italian and German shows.

There are also 30 different Japanese anime series in the works.

While many of the TV companies are cutting ties with Netflix as they try to compete in one form or another, CW, owned by CBS and Warner Bros., is continuing to offer shows like Supergirl and The Flash to Netflix.

According to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings the decrease in deals with other studios is not worrying. Netflix has been increasing the amount of original content, or Netflix Originals, which now account for more than 25 percent of the budget.

Google Fiber launched in Louisville

Google Fiber launched in Louisville

Google Fiber has been officially launched in Louisville, KY. Louisville becomes the tenth city to get search giant's super fast internet service.

Google has been working on San Antonio, TX as well as Louisville for a while now. San Antonio is still under construction but today first customers will be able to apply for Google Fiber in Kentucky's largest city.

Louisville mayor Greg Fischer welcomed Google Fiber earlier today to the city with Google representatives visiting the city. The availability is fairly limited at this point, and only available in three neighborhoods (Portland, Newburg and Strathmoor). Google hasn't revealed the exact number of potential customers reached with the launch.

Louisville is the first city to not get Google Fiber as a Internet and TV bundle. Instead, you'll have separate Google Fiber internet connection which you can pair up with the new YouTube TV streaming service that costs you an additional $35/mo.

The internet service itself, however, is priced just like in other Google Fiber cities. 100/100Mbit for $50 and 1000/1000Mbit for $70/mo.

Google Fiber is now available in parts of Orange County, Salt Lake City, Provo, Kansas City, Austin, Charlotte, Atlanta, The Triangle, Nashville and Louisville.
