A New Year with Great Possibilities

It’s been ages and ages since I’ve posted my last blog, so here it is finally. I’ve been spending a lot of time boosting my subscribers and helping a YouTube friend as well. As you know, I have suffered a lot of headache last year with the fact that I got hacked 3 times by the same hacker. It seems that some people do not realize how much effort I put into all of my channels. I made a dozen accounts every month, just so that I can catch up with all the 51,000 subscribers I lost on my jhirzel88 channel. So far, I have around 50 channels, but 10 of them have gotten suspended. I use the i-macros, a firefox addon, which can continuously click on channels via YouLikeHits and AddMeFast.com. I also use enhanceviews.com, which I can re-authenticate my accounts so that I can continue using it while I am asleep.

I am a person who wants to reach the absolute limits. I ask myself these questions. How many subscribers can I possibly get until there is no-one left to subscribe to me? Also, how much money can I make from ads if I get enough views to reach popularity status? Since I love math and science, I take everything into consideration when it comes to numbers. You may think to yourself, “Oh, it’s only numbers”, but numbers mean data, and data is the thing that keeps every website in tact. Who knows, YouTube might not be around in another 10 years if people don’t see any results in their numbers. YouTube only seems to care about the big corporations and never about the small users. Back in 2007, which is 2 years after Google bought YouTube, there were tons of people applying for partnership, because they had a small fanbase of only 1,000 subscribers. That’s all it took for people to get millions of views on their videos. Now all of that is in the past now. I have over 30,000 subscribers on my jviewer029 channel, and I don’t get shit! All I get is comments and messages from other users persuading me to watch their videos. Like I’d ever do that! I don’t care, these peoples’ videos will just go down the toilet anyways. I use wenoo more often than YouTube anyways since there is a real fanbase of potential users to watch your videos. YouTube has crappy channel designs anyways, and it’s no wonder why YouTube got rid of “friend adding” 2 years ago. Nobody will use such a website that looks just plain ugly. Plus, with Google Plus, don’t even get me started. Google is forcing every user to merge their YouTube account with Google Plus, otherwise they will no longer be able to comment on any videos. Google doesn’t need to force me to do anything. I’ll just stick with messaging people from now on. At least I’m still allowed to do that. I rarely ever use YouTube except for checking messages anyways, so I don’t really care if I can’t comment anymore.

On the bright side, I have never been hacked in 2014 yet, since I made sure I used fake phone numbers with my usernames. I also made every password on every new account different, plus I made the Google email different than the username. No hacker will ever be crack my every single one of my passwords, ever! I only have 1,000 subscribers on each channel so I don’t my hackers will be interested in that few of subscribers. I use phone verification on my high subscriber channels so unless my hackers got a hold of my phone, they’re not logging in.

I’ll spend more time helping my friend achieve more views and subscribers, since I am afraid I may still get hacked even with all the extra precautions. I am not interested in views, only subscribers, but I am more interested in giving more of my subscribers to her.

 

I’ve also been listening to the radio with my new outdoor antenna, which is hooked up in the bathroom for now. I plan to move it to the roof soon, but since I got the space, I’ll just keep it in there for now. I’m listening to WSOU at a precise antenna position. It was not easy to setup my antenna, especially when the antenna has to be positioned and directionally rotated. Plus, I use a bunch of headphones wires for extra reception and that alone took quite a long time to get to the right spot. I do this constantly whenever I change radio stations.

 

I have also been working and going to school on top of all this, so I do get quite busy.

My YouTube accounts keep getting HACKED!

Sorry for such a late post. I have been consistently trying to catch up with all my YouTube subscribers, only to find out that all that effort is all put to waste when my accounts got hacked. On February 28, 2013, my jhirzel88 channel was the first channel to get hacked, and unfortunately that got closed down when I tried to recover it. The hacker had access to my computer screen and could even open and close tabs. He keylogged my password as I typed it in. I downloaded malicious software, which was supposed to be a program that would give me subscribers, but I got nothing except a Trojan attack.

The next month, I got hacked by someone else, who is the same person who just hacked a 4th YouTube channel of mine several days ago. He is targeting me as a victim and there’s nothing I can do. I tried making my password 100 characters and Google retrieved my account for him when he selected “My account may have been compromised” option. Google thought that I was the hacker all because I changed my password. All he needed was an email and a phone number, then BANG, Google gave him my account. That proves how much Google’s security SUCKS! Never join YouTube. They have the worst security in the world. I already read on about this. They will give anyone’s accounts to ANYONE, because they have a crappy automated system and there’s no human beings running it. Now I have to create a fake phone number and email so that I don’t get hacked again. Plus, I can’t even use my real name anywhere anymore, which REALLY SUCKS!

My hacker has all my personal information now because the account that he recently hacked has all my monetization details on it, including my Social Security number and my address. I am ruined because of him.

I know the hacker’s name, but I wish to not disclose that information to better protect myself and anyone else who wishes to not get hacked by him.

This is fucking shit, it really is!

Finding More Answers to Bird Feeding

It’s coming to 9 straight months now that I’ve set table scraps out to the birds, and I just want to say, that I have seen a lot of changes in some of their eating habits, which have varied from season to season. First off, the starlings seem to eat every morsel of food that I have in the pile. Sometimes, they will come in the dozens when there is a lot of food out. In that case, it’ll just take an hour for the food to disappear. I do not think I am doing any harm by putting these food items out. On the contrary, the starlings find similar items in the wild. The popcorn resembles corn, and since there are lots of corn fields here in New Jersey, that is a common item for them to eat. I also put chicken out, which resembles insects. It’s kind of a weird fact that bugs taste just like chicken. I think that might be true, haha! Another food item that I put out is pasta, and although that is the last item to disappear, it is similar to something, but I just can’t name it right now. I do put soda out as well, but keep in mind, that I do watch every recording to observe how much they are drinking. I only saw a few starlings that drank more than a few sips. Even at that, by the time that bird drinks it, the soda has been out for an hour and is pretty much depleted of carbonation. In the wild, I am sure that all birds have the instinct to know if that soda is going to do any damage to them. Then again, I only saw one or two House Sparrows drinking a measly sip of soda in the summer, so I can’t be too sure on that. I won’t worry about that, I’ll just continue on and if I see any exploding birds, I’ll have it posted. How’s that sound? I’ll tell you one thing, that’s not going to happen, that’s all I can say.

The crows, on the other hand, are only collecting meat items and they don’t seem to eat anything. There was one crow that took a chicken thigh and flew down to the center of the road as if it was too heavy to fly away with. I’m not entirely sure if it was too heavy or if it just hungry and wanted to set it on a hard surface to eat a few pieces. Then, once another crow came to try to snatch the chicken, the crow flew off-camera and I couldn’t see how far the crow went after that. I am pretty sure these crows are determined to hide any food items that they collect. I’m sure if the other crow that was about to steal the chicken from that crow was watching the chicken beforehand, they knew what they would be getting themselves into if the weight of it would be too much to handle.

A few days ago, I did observe a crow taking a few pieces of popcorn, after it ate the first piece. That was one example that maybe they are eating more than just meat. I will tell you this, I know they can’t be eating meat all the time. They aren’t even eating reeses anymore either like they were in the past. That’s considered nuts to them, which is a protein-rich product just like meat is, but it may be possible that these are different crows that have never eaten them, and perhaps they don’t realize that there is peanut butter inside of the shells. The weather is getting colder, so the shells aren’t melting for the crows to smell the peanut butter either.  I did lots of research on crows, and crows eat about 1/3 animal matter and the rest is plant matter. Therefore, it is probably obvious that wherever the crows are roosting at is where they keep their food. It is quite interesting that they cache and store food items for a long time. I read that they can store perishable food items for as long as 6 months. I wonder if the crows are trying to save that meat for the Spring? They have carried away meat items in the Spring too, but I know that all that meat couldn’t be eaten right now since the crows don’t have any babies to take care of since they grew up. The babies probably ate that meat before and right now they are just managing for themselves. My gosh, back then, I remembered one crow that was sitting on a telephone wire and a few Vultures were eating all the food, then after the vultures left, only a couple of gummy worms were left and some popcorn. That crow immediately came and ate both gummy worms right on that spot. No other bird I’ve seen has eaten something like that, so I can tell you that their ability to survive on any food source is incredible! They do eat from garbage dumpsters so they have no reason to be picky when they need the food the most.

I haven’t seen any House Sparrows around. The last time I saw them was about a month ago. When they were around at the time, they were just eating popcorn from the food pile and bird seed from my grandma’s feeder. I saw one that would keep taking reeses away. That is quite strange because it’s only this one sparrow that was doing it. I’m sure that starling had a liking to them because of the shell’s sweet taste. They aren’t interested so much in eating peanut butter, but I’m sure they ate it anyways, since it’s soft enough to eat. They do eat 4% insects during the non-breeding months, so I’m sure that accounts to something when it comes to them eating the correct protein they need. In the Spring time, there were some House Sparrows that were eating nothing but chicken, but once that disappeared, they started to eat almost everything else too just like the starlings always are. That’s a drastic change compared to what I’ve recently seen.

I noticed that the reeses are eaten by the squirrels now. Also, I notice them eating the shells are well. They used to trim around those and leave the shells behind in the summer. Perhaps now, the sugar that is in the shells is crucial for them to store fat to keep warm through the winter. I am not exactly sure, but I think that is what’s going on with that. One thing that makes me wonder, if I am putting 20 reeses out and the crows observe the squirrels eating them just like they were eating nuts and taking the hidden caches, then how come they don’t do the same thing for the reeses. I’m sure the crows know that the squirrels are eating them, so why can’t they do the same thing? It seems that the crows already have enough nuts, and maybe they are stashed out on them. That’s my guess. What do you think about that one?

Well, I’m sorry it’s been a while since my last blog. I decided to make this entry because I feel more confident of what I am feeding these birds based on what they need to eat. Over these months, it didn’t click on me until now. If you got any bird feeding stories to share, I’m always open for those. Thanks for checking this post out.

Updates From Hurricane Sandy

I know that it’s been ages since my last blog, but I just want to let everyone know that I’m alive after the hurricane that we had. It wasn’t quite as bad in my area though since I live about 5 miles from the PA border. There was lots of wind and rain, but only a few large tree branches fell. I had the power out for about 7 hours and needless to say, I was extremely lucky that I made out as well as I did, because some people won’t get their power back until Thursday. Only about half of the millions of people that lost power have their power back as of right now. Well, I took advantage of the power outage by playing UNO with my grandma, which is one thing I haven’t done in over a year. I did that while listening to B985 on my Grundig radio. The sole DJ that was in the studio at the time was stuck for 36 hours, since the radio station is on the shore where millions of people had to evacuate. Anyways, the girl that was running the station at the time already knew how bad the hurricane was since she was watching the news. There were reported winds in excess of 70 mph in some local places, and power lines were shaking back and forth until they snapped. Sparks were flying from the transformers, and the situation with flooding was so bad, that there was a shark on a boulevard at a shore area also. People were urged to stay inside, and even being 3 feet from their doors and windows might stir trouble too. There was much more danger than expected. There is more than that which was going on, but I’m lost on words at this point.

I played cards with my grandma for a few hours. All of a sudden, during the commercial break at midnight, everything got cut off and there was dead silence. The studio probably lost power, rather than their transmitter, since that is in a different town. Either that, or it was turned off on purpose because the DJ was going to sleep and didn’t want to risk any fire from electric problems that might occur from the hurricane. My UNO game was almost over so that didn’t matter to me.

The next morning, I woke up, and B985 was static. There was no signal at all. Then, at around 10 am, the radio station got turned back on after the morning show was supposed to end. All of the morning people were doing news and bulletins when they started late. There was a huge sound quality boost when I listened to it at first. I found it hard to believe I was listening to the radio it sounded so good. It was broadcasting in full CD quality. You can find more detail about this on my radio section right here.

You can even download a 15-hour recording right here as well.

Well, I’m going to end it here, and if you have anything to say about the hurricane that you experienced, I’d like to know about it.

Music Appreciation Song Analysis

I decided to share a paper that I just typed up. If you recall seeing my blog about the European Starling that was dead on the side of the road, where I flapped its wing, this is where I last mentioned this song. If you can see a connection here, there is only a small connection, because this story is completely imaginative.

Annagrace – Song Analysis

       The song “Don’t Let Go” is by far my favorite song by Annagrace and probably any other dance artist. Whetever what kind of mood the person is in, sad or happy, depressed or anxious, can certainly still feel calm when hearing it. It is a song with a repeated chorus, with a few versus. This song is vivid enough to describe Annagrace, or whoever is in my imagination, to be walking on the sidewalk. All of a sudden, a lot of birds, and hundreds of them, swoop down behind her. Within just a few seconds upon them approaching, she is fastened with dozens of ropes and is dragged away 1,000 feet up into the distance. There is a parrot who leads the flock, equipped with headphones, cameras, and other equipment. He turns around briefly every now and then to make sure everything is in check. He is constantly rotating his head, and looking out for any danger that may be lurking into the dark clouds. That parrot obviously commands where the birds are taking her. The other birds seem to have no sense of real direction except for what the parrot is doing. The whole song talks about Annagrace not letting go of these birds, no matter what! Even if there’s a thunderstorm, or downpouring rain, she’s still hanging on. She’s determined to do anything she can to get away from her lover, as illustrated in her other songs. She may be doing this out of either love or hate, or she may be leaving humanity altogether. Perhaps she was meant to be alone, unexposed by the terrible world that she has to live in. As there was no information about the songs in detail other than the links to i-tunes to download the songs, the song can only be stated by whatever the listener feels that it may resemble. Annagrace has the following according to her Facebook page, “She writes her own songs, which cannot be taken for granted in the dance scene. And of course, with Ready To Dare, there is link to the world of fashion, one of AnnaGrace’s long time passions.” She never had an intention to explaining the meaning to her words. Usually, if only one person writes the song, rather than going through 2 or more people, the artist may feel secretive and could be judged incorrectly by someone who is not willing to accept her thoughts. The instrumental parts of the song fit the lyrics perfectly. There is much harmony present where Annagrace uses a trance to engage the listener to the chorus of the song. For the most part, there are two instruments being combined into those areas of the song, without the use of drums or any other percussion instruments. That would more than likely take away the power that the song brings. There should be a sense of a go-far feeling, where everything is continuous. There are instances of word panting whenever she sings the word “go”. She adds an emphasis on the “o” for another second. She is explaining that she needs to hold on to these birds, as tight as she can, to prevent from falling to her death. Hopefully, wherever she is going or moving to is far away, and far enough away that she doesn’t have to deal with the issues that she is facing. If she does eventually go back home, perhaps she might want to try to survive at the very least and prevent herself from dying. That way, things can go back to the way it was. Nothing can stop her, and certainly nobody can attack her since she is high up in the sky. Who knows, she may not ever want to come back down, and may even be stuck up there forever. If she does land on the ground, it’s going to be hard to hold on to anything after that point. The lyrics never explain about finally letting go. Even at final second of the song, rather than using a traditional fade-out, the song cuts off where she sings “Don’t Let Go”. Then an instrument resembling a “whoosh” resembles that constant motion of everything still in progress.

Lyrics

If you’re feeling down
Call on me
Hold on tight and baby don’t let go
This too will pass
You’ve gotta believe in the power of love
So don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Sometimes life can drive you crazy
I know how hard that it can be
When the problems come together
You’ve got real hard to feel at ease
Someday somewhere somehow I know
The love you want it will be there
Someday somehow
I’ll will to come
If you’re feeling down
Call on me
Hold on tight and baby don’t let go
This too will pass
You’ve gotta believe in the power of love
So don’t let go
Don’t let go
So don’t let go
Don’t let go
No I don’t have all the answers
To the questions in your mind
All I know is that I love you
And your tears they will run dry
Someday somewhere somehow I know
The love you want it will be there
Someday somehow
I’ll will for come
If you’re feeling down
Call on me
Hold on tight and baby don’t let go
This too will pass
You’ve gotta believe in the power of love
So don’t let go
Don’t let go
So don’t let go
Don’t let go

Great Movie Worth Checking Out

I just got back from watching “Snow White and the Huntsman” and oh my gosh, the movie was so cool. Well, it all starts with Snow White, which as you know had very white skin and lips as red as rose. I would like to do a comparison to the Disney version. It’s a pretty significant difference. Well, if I were to compare anything, the beginning starts when she takes care of a baby bird, but not just any bird. This was a European Magpie. That’s a very social bird in real life, and they usually do approach people more easily than other birds. That is probably why the magpie was suited for that scene. Not only that, but they are native to England, since that’s the most common bird you’ll find there. Well, back to the story. In the Disney version of this movie, there are many types of birds that randomly come onto her hand, and she is singing to them in the beginning. In the movie, she takes care of one bird and brings it inside to show to her dad. Later on, about 5 years later when Snow White got older, that same bird is shown leading the way to safety as the guards were chasing her to bring her to the evil queen. There was another bird later on that it mated with, so there were two birds leading the way. It all stops at a forbidden forest, which the evil queen cannot enter. That is the exact place where in the disney version, she finds a cabin and meets the seven dwarfs. In both versions, the queen seeks a huntsman to kill her, which he refuses too once he sees her beauty. However, in the real version, the huntsman travels with her, rather then letting her run away in the Disney version. There is also dwarfs in both versions, although the dwarfs in the real movie hang Snow White and the Huntsman by a rope before joining forces. Lastly, they come to the middle of a forest, where she finds a deer that allows Snow White to come close and pet it. All of a sudden, an arrow strikes it and it transforms into hundreds of magpies. The guards continue to chase everyone down. These scenes never happened in the Disney version. The last, and most important scene is the fact that the queen had a few ravens as her pets. Once she is striked with a sword by the Huntsman, who survives the first blow, she transforms into a hundred ravens and attacks him. She, in her raven form, returns to the castle, where she transforms back into herself.

I seem to be talking about birds a lot, because guess what, that’s why I enjoyed this movie so much. It’s certainly worth watching. There’s a lot more I could say that doesn’t have to do with birds, but I don’t want to give too much away. If you want a movie with a good twist, this movie’s got it.

Physics I Update

Today, I had my first Physics class. I got a chance to introduce myself. I was asked for my name, what I am majoring in, my career goals, and my hobbies and interests. I talked about the fact that my dad is in the Air Force, and I’ve lived overseas in Germany for six years. That’s longer than the 4 years we were expected to live there, in comparison to the other places I lived. My mom decided to start up her own business after she got divorced. I helped along side her as she got it all started. Although I am no longer working at the shop, as I have decided to stay with my grandparents’, I feel that whenever I am needed, I will always be there for her.

I then mentioned that I like to go on bike rides, and most recently, during my spare time, I like to feed the birds and record them eating. For my goals, I said that I was thinking about getting an Amazon Parrot but I want a raven as a pet instead. The teacher then asked me what my academic goals were, which is where I slipped up. I said that I wanted to work for Microsoft one of these days, since I am majoring in Computer Science. That pretty much ended my intro. I’d say that it could have turned out better, but that was the best I could do without any kind of script.

After the class introduced themselves, we went into the first Chapter. It was a very easy chapter, since I have already covered this in Physics II. As I was not able to have the dean except me from the credits, I was stuck taking it. I decided to ask the teacher at the end of class if there is any tests I can take to pass me out of the class. Unfortunately, there is nothing she can do, unless the dean states so otherwise. She has to do what the curriculum expects. I was told that if I attend every single class, I will surely get an A, rather than a B or C, as there may be material that may come unexpected during a test that I had to have examples covered in class. The fact that I am at school from 9 am to 10 pm is really terrible for me, plus I get a 2 hour break before my afternoon class. The teacher told me that she is also there teaching all the way through the evening too. I didn’t feel too bad after hearing that.

I’ll deal with not having to study extra hard. Why in the heck did I study so hard for that A in Physics II then? I was incredibly lucky to get that grade. I made stupid mistakes which racked my mind so much that it is impossible to not think that I contributed all that effort for nothing.
