NRA advocates against sensible gun laws

#NeedtoKnow Many, many years ago the NRA used to be all about safety and strict gun legislation, which they actually helped create. That was until sometime in the mid 70s when the leadership changed.... The NRA then became nothing more than a lobbyist for the gun manufacturers, paying numerous Congress members a LOT of $ to destroy all that sensible gun legislation they'd previously helped create. So the result being more guns would be sold and they'd too profit from it due to being the lobbyist for gun manufacturers they've become. Lack of *sensible gun legislation results in people like the young man in FL that LEGALLY purchased an assault weapon, killing 49 people and himself. In case you missed it - After the Orlando mass shooting, when approached the NRA stuck to their guns (pun intended) saying that even a terrorist having been on, or currently on a watch list has the constitutional right to buy any weapon they choose. (side note that's a misinterpretation of the 2nd amendment as well, but I digress) So, when you give your hard earned money to the NRA, you, (un)intentional or not, are funding the NRA to advocate to allow mass murders like Omar Mateen to purchase anything, I repeat, anything he needs to kill with. If you do not want to shoulder the responsibility of such support resulting in mass murder as we saw in Orlando - If you are currently a member of the NRA, I implore you to contact the NRA asking that they support *sensible gun laws* (*that doesn't mean taking away your guns). By sensible I mean JUST that - if a person is on a no fly list they surely shouldn't be able to purchase a gun but the NRA says they should be allowed. When polled most of the people in the U.S. want sensible gun laws. The NRA just needs to hear your voice. The NRA pushes out rhetoric to confuse, don't allow it. And why is the NRA so powerful? Shouldn't we the people and our Congress be making these sensible laws? Not a corporate entity? #FoodForThought #NowYouKnow whether you do good or evil with the information is up to you. Sincerely.

For Apple iPhoto users - location of "Photos" and the missing "Reveal in Finder" woes

I always create a shortcut to some of my hidden files on my hard drive - that is not recommended for most users - but for those of you that do the same I'm sure you understand why. I noticed my shortcut to photos cuts off the very day I updated from iPhoto to Photo app.

As you may have discovered, too, the new Photo app doesn't have the option to find the actual photo via reveal finder in the menu any longer. An annoyance many of us discuss on the Apple forums. So, I was just going to locate the photos I didn't really truly want to save forever via my shortcut and it appeared that the new Photos app on Mac wasn't saving my photos from Photo Stream to my hard drive (I do that so I don't have to worry about the 1000 photos/30 day limits). In an effort to figure out why my new photos were not appearing, I found what looked like 2 duplicate photo folders appearing to take up twice the hard drive space on my computer if I viewed "Get Info". A few moments later I discovered what appeared like actually 5 folders of the same photos! 2 "Masters" and 1 "Original" and 1 "Modified" and "Preview" folders. Note:Years ago the Masters was called Original (photos). Does that mean my photos are on my computer 5x? Not so fast....

Without being more long winded, one Masters and the Original is actually the same and what appears to be the newer for "Photos" app, and the "Modified" and "Previews" is the same as the older "Masters" folder that was used for "iPhotos".

Confused? if so then it doesn't matter to you. However, if you understand - then I hope I save you fellow geeks a few minutes - your photos are NOT duplicated, but just another way Apple updates without duplicating, giving you access using old files if you still want to use iPhoto (old software).
