Matthew Whitaker domains

Last week, President Trump appointed Matthew Whitaker to be the Acting Attorney General.  I was curious whether Matthew Whitaker had registered any website, and it appears he did.

Desktop Tower Defense on Hard

I recently spent a few days obsessing over Desktop Tower Defense.  My goal was to beat the game on "Hard" mode without losing a single life, and I hit that goal 4 times.

The frustrating part was that I couldn't design a grid layout that would always win.  There seems to be a certain amount of luck involved.

The biggest hurdle was Level 48 + Level 49.  The reason these levels were so challenging is that the bosses from Level 48 (the Spawn creeps) would still be winding their way around the maze by the time Level 49 started.  You don't really have control over which creeps your towers will prioritize, and so the bosses on Level 49 (the Flying creeps) would often zip through without taking a lot of damage.

If anyone has tips on how I could improve these grids, let me know:





(That last grid might be a little misleading, because I'm pretty sure I was selling off some towers at the end in order to get the Level 50 creeps back towards the center.)

Luxottica.com and related domains

I was watching an Adam Ruins Everything episode about shopping malls.  One of the segments dealt with glasses, and Adam's friend revealed how "80% of Glasses and sunglasses brands are controlled by a single company: Luxottica."

"Luxottica???"
She later added: "Luxottica also owns almost all the major glasses stores, too, including Lens Crafters, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical, Target Optical, and Sunglass Hut."

I'd never heard of Luxottica before, but the show made me curious to see how many domains the company has owned, so I logged onto Whoisology.    LensCrafters.com is registered to the e-mail address domadmin@luxotticaretail.com.  In total, 468 domains have been registered to that same e-mail address:

Annoying robocallers

908-877-4605:  A robot from Wyndham Hotels, saying my number had been pre-selected.
908-655-8547:  Some message talking about student loans

(More examples to come, assuming this keeps happening.)

Your article from October 22, 2018 is titled: "Inspiring NYC student goes from homeless shelter to college dorm"

A New York Daily News article from October 22, 2018, is titled: "Inspiring NYC student goes from homeless shelter to college dorm"

Your opening:
More than 42,000 city high school grads entered college this fall, but few of them overcame as many obstacles as Odean Gray.

What's the deal with CallerSource.net?

The internet is a gateway to information.  But is the information always accurate?

Recently, I stumbled on CallerSource.net, which is a website that provides Caller ID for phone numbers.   I looked up my own phone number on the site (it begins 908-872), and CallerSource said the number belongs to a woman in Alexandria, Louisiana.

I then looked up the phone numbers for several businesses in my hometown of Warren, NJ:

The phone number for the Starbucks in town center is 908-668-8028; CallerSource.net says that # belongs to a person named "Jodelle Soua" in Grapevine, Texas.

The phone number for the Smoothie King in town center is 908-222-3590; CallerSource.net says that # belongs to a person named "Savana Ronny" in Janesville, Wisconsin.

The phone number for the Jersey Mike's Subs in town center is 908-753-5184; CallerSource.net says that # belongs to a person named "Juliah Dalylah" in Texarkana, Texas.

The whole website strikes me as suspect.  I sent an e-mail to CallerSource.net@gmail.com (which is the e-mail listed on their contact page) and said:
I looked up my phone number on your site, and it said the number belonged to some woman in Alexandria, Louisiana.  I was wondering how you get the information on your site, since it doesn't appear to be accurate?
I didn't get a reply.

CallerSource also displays AdSense ads (ca-pub-7922405717763424).  I refreshing the site several times, and all the ads I saw were for Spokeo, BeenVerified, or Intelius.  (That might be the result of targeted advertising, though.)
