politics: Questions for Herriman city council candidates

By: Doran Barton on 2015-07-16 at 00:16:19

Four candidates are running for the District 4 seat of the Herriman City Council. I've sent the following questionnaire to all four and hope to get good responses from each of them. I won't endorse one of them if I don't get a response from them.

Political spectrum test

Since the city council race is non-partisan, it's not fair to ask you what political party you most closely associate ...

tech: An RMS recollection

By: Doran Barton on 2015-05-06 at 04:17:34

Written by Chadd VanZanten about an incident in 1999

Concerning "The RMS Run." I've forgotten a lot about that night. On purpose. I'll tell you what I remember. It will probably contain hyperbole and inaccuracies. I take that back. Not probably. Certainly.

What I remember best is that RMS was simply unpleasant, supercilious, judgmental and, worst of all, oblivious to his own behavior. ...

general: Oticon Chile SP9

By: Doran Barton on 2015-04-10 at 20:45:17

So, I've been wearing Oticon Chili SP9 hearing aids in both ears for the last couple of months as a trial (I've actually tried two different sets.) I've been mostly satisfied with them. I'd give them an 8 out of 10.

I'm returning them, however, because rumor has it Oticon has something coming in a couple of months. ...

politics: An explanation of Net Neutrality

By: Doran Barton on 2015-02-27 at 06:55:44

Just this week, the Federal Communications Commission determined they had the authority, under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934 (which was created to regulate the telephone system), to regulate the Internet service provider industry. This is what has been called "Net Neutrality."

I have long supported one particular aspect of President Obama's original proposal for Net Neutrality ...

general: It's all downhill from here

By: Doran Barton on 2015-01-07 at 17:31:50

Yesterday, I paid a visit to my father-in-law, who is also my audiologist, to make some adjustments to the programming of my hearing aids. I asked him if he could perform a new hearing test for me and generate a new audiogram since it's been a couple of years since I've had one done. We did that and I guess I was pretty dismayed, but not necessarily surprised, to see the results.

general: Thoughts on treating hearing loss

By: Doran Barton on 2014-12-16 at 02:44:07

Most who know me know I've lived with moderate to severe hearing loss. I've worn hearing aids for 36 years and have gotten by quite well, functioning sufficiently in the world of school, career, and family.

My hearing loss has gotten gradually worse over the years, however. What started as a 45-50 dB loss in both ears when I was a child has become a 65-75 dB loss, possibly worse. A 100 ...

general: Book Review: "Dreamers and Deceivers" by Glenn Beck

By: Doran Barton on 2014-12-08 at 08:19:02

Does Glenn Beck write his own books? I doubt it's possible. I believe his role is more like that of a film director or even a producer. With Miracles and Massacres and his latest offering Dreamers and Deceivers, I believe he picked which stories were to be told, what details were to be emphasized, and what the overall effect on the reader was to be.
