JavaScript developer B J May had a hilarious encounter with his smart home security system mid week, when his Nest Hello doorbell thought he was the caped crusader himself.He and wife Cori — who also have a YouTube channel “WeMay’dIt” — had installed the smart doorbell “paired with the Nest x Yale lock” but even its night-vision didn’t help it recognise the man of the house when Batman was the alternative.“My @nest doorbell automatically locks the front door when it sees a face it doesn’t recognize. Today it didn’t recognize me, so I went into the app to investigate and …” Mr May tweeted, including a picture that his doorbell took zeroing in on Batman on his tshirt. The doorbell decided the caped crusader should fall in the foe category and immediately secured the door — going viral soon after it was tweeted with over 33,000 likes. B J May is not fazed in the slightest, heading off to work — this time in a Dr Pepper tshirt. Picture: BJMay’s doorbell/@BJMay/Twitter. FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOK “The door will not unlock if it sees a friendly face. That’s not a feature. It just reacts to an unknown face by locking the door just in case you forgot to lock it and a stranger approaches. It didn’t recognize Batman,” Mr May tweeted.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus16 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market16 hours ago James Packer splashes $80m on new home B J May had the option to unlock the door via an app. Picture: @BJMay/Twitter.

4-year-old begins gender transition in Australia

first_imgNewsHub 1 September 2016Family First Comment: Very sad. State-sponsored child abuse.A four-year-old in New South Wales has begun the process of changing gender, with the help of the state government.It comes amid a rapid increase in the number of Australian children considering gender changes.The child will start making the transition before the first day of kindergarten next year and the NSW Education Department is supporting the family, the school and the child through the process.But it won’t reveal whether the child was born a girl or a boy.The case has proven to be a polarising issue, with advocates saying usually children around that age are right about the gender they identify with, but others are questioning whether the state should be involved in supporting the process at all.The number of children changing gender in Australia has skyrocketed.At a hospital in Melbourne 10 years ago there was only one case of gender dysphoria – now there are 250, while at a Sydney hospital those numbers have tripled.As the numbers continue to rise, it’s likely the debate will go on and on. Schools: ‘rainbow ideology’ fuels sex switchesThe Australian 1 September 2016Critics of the polarising Safe Schools program have stepped up demands for it to be axed after revelations several NSW ¬students including a four-year-old preschool child have been receiving support with gender transitioning.Australian Christian Lobby spokeswoman Wendy Francis claimed a reported spike in cases of gender dysphoria, where someone’s biological sex doesn’t align with their gender identity, had followed the rollout of Safe Schools. “Safe Schools didn’t come in to address the problem, this is happening after the Safe Schools program has been introduced,’’ she said. “The thought that four-year-olds would be seeking to change their gender is madness. We are sacrificing our children to a rainbow ideology.’’NSW Education Department deputy secretary of school operations Greg Prior revealed in parliamentary estimates this week a number of students were “going through gender transition in our schools, with the youngest being a four-year-old’’. He said Safe Schools was only one resource used to support students, families and schools.The four-year-old will go to kindergarten next year and has identified as transgender. The school initially registered on the Safe Schools anti-bullying site to access materials to help teachers prepare to assist the child. read more

Kole Calhoun considers the possible end of his Angels career

first_imgANAHEIM — Kole Calhoun stood in the Angels clubhouse in full uniform, long after most of his teammates had already changed into T-shirts and shorts or even street clothes. His uniform was still covered in dirt from his headfirst slide home with the Angels final run of a disappointing season.For Calhoun, it may have been his final moment in the only uniform he’s ever known.“I can’t say that I haven’t thought about it,” Calhoun said. “Coming off the field that ninth inning, that could be the last time. Yeah, I’ve definitely thought about it. We’ll see what happens, though.”The Angels hold a $14 million option on Calhoun for 2020, with a $1 million buyout. They have to decide within five days of the end of the World Series. Although it’s not certain, they are expected to decline the option to use those resources to add pitching. Even if they do decline the option, it’s possible they could still bring back Calhoun back at a lesser salary. Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield “If that was it, this has been a helluva ride,” Calhoun said. “It really has. I’ve been with this organization for 10 years and they made a dream come true and gave me a chance to go out and play everyday. I couldn’t be more grateful.”Related Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Calhoun said he appreciated the comments he heard from the fans and a few signs. He wasn’t sure if Manager Brad Ausmus would pull him from the game early, so he took each at-bat as if it might be his last.“You are not human if the thought doesn’t cross your mind that this could be it,” Calhoun said. “Even driving here this morning. Walking away from here today, could be the last time. It’s kind of special. Looking back over these last 10 years, they have been the best 10 years of my life.”ALSOTommy La Stella got a hit in four trips to the plate, finishing 1 for 8 in the two games he played after missing nearly three months with a broken leg.
