Full House to Vote on NH Exit CACR32 on 3/10 – Contact State Reps NOW!

NHexit.US - Mon, 2022-03-07 23:27 +0000

NHexit.US

The next big step for the NH Exit constitutional amendment, CACR 32, is this Thursday March 10th, when it will come to the full state house for a vote. Supporters of New Hampshire independence should immediately call or email their state representatives and ask them to support CACR 32. Please remind them that voting on CACR 32 is NOT a vote on state secession. Their vote is on whether or not to put the question on the ballot for the people to decide.

Many reps are confused and believe that if they vote to pass CACR 32 that they are supporting independence for NH and that is not true. Voting to kill CACR 32 means they are anti-democratic and do not want to allow the people of New Hampshire to vote on the matter.  Please be kind to the confused reps and try to help them understand rather than getting upset.

Here’s a handy tool you can use to discover your local state reps and get their contact information. While you can contact more than just your area’s reps, reps outside your area may not consider your comments as seriously as your local reps. So, if your time is limited, keep your state rep outreach to your area’s reps only.

Second, if you have free time this Thursday March 10th, please show up at the state house in Concord at 107 N Main St for their full house session where CACR 32 will be heard. We do not know the exact time CACR 32 will come up, but it is expected to happen at some point. The session begins at 9am but some NH Independence activists will be arriving much earlier, some as early as 7:30am, for a rally outside the state house. Feel free to bring signs or shirts promoting independence for New Hampshire. Be sure to also connect with our chat rooms on Matrix or Telegram to help coordinate. Both chat rooms are linked together, so if you join one, you needn’t join the other.

Earlier this winter, the committee hearing the bill voted it “Inexpedient to Legislate” 21-0, however there are 400 state reps in New Hampshire and because it’s a constitutional amendment any vote of the full house must be a “roll call” vote. Roll call means that each representative’s vote is recorded so we know how each state rep voted. We need to be present on Thursday to show them there is support for CACR 32 and that we are watching to see how they vote. See you Thursday morning at the state house in Concord!

Sean Monroe: A Fresh Voice for Positive Change in Bedford Public Schools

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-03-07 22:00 +0000

I am writing to endorse Sean Monroe for the Bedford School Board. Over the last two years, parents have begun to wake up and realize they have lost control over how or under what circumstances their children are being educated in the Bedford public school system.

The education of their children is being administered by school board officials and a misguided superintendent who is out of touch with reality, kowtow to teachers’ unions and does not emphasize their children’s best interests.

Sean brings a fresh voice and perspective to Bedford. He is passionate about student academics, is focused on transparency and accountability and champions the notion of limited government, and believes parents (not government bureaucrats) should be making decisions about the education their children receive and the environment in which they learn.

Academics

Sean believes a student’s education should reflect what is required by the New Hampshire Constitution: knowledge and learning are essential to a free society, and it should include learning about literature, the sciences, math, arts, history, humanities, the trades, charity, the economy, and good character.

We want to thank Robert Fojo for this Op-Ed.
Please direct yours to Editor@GraniteGrok.com.

Sean believes political agendas and “theories” about how or why our societal constructs exist have no place in the classroom and are best left up to parents. Schools are formative institutions; they were never intended as performative, elitist platforms for attention seekers and idealogues. Sean believes schools should shape students into young adults who can think for themselves, reason, and grow into responsible members of society. He believes teachers should serve as sources of insight and wisdom to shepherd students along that path.

Transparency and Accountability

School board officials and superintendents are not dictators. They are supposed to represent the interests of parents and their children. Superintendents – by virtue of their position (they serve the school board) – also should focus on serving the interests of students. School board officials and superintendents are not public health officials and have no right to insert themselves between parents and their children concerning health or general upbringing.

Sean believes his role as a school board official is, accordingly, limited to serving the interests of parents, focusing on educating children, and otherwise getting out of the way. Sean also believes superintendents need to be held accountable to the school board and to parents.

Parent Choice

Sean believes family is the foundation of education. He believes parents know their children better and care for them more than government bureaucrats.

Sean believes there is no one-size-fits-all approach to education, and there may be strategies for education that work better for some children than others. Thus, he believes educators and parents should be able to work together to best meet the needs of children. They should work in concert – rather than engage in ideological battles – so that child-rearing is easier for parents.

Sean has two children in the Bedford school system and has intimate knowledge of the issues above and is invested in improving Bedford public schools.

He believes the last two years – during which children suffered significantly as schools were shut down and mask mandates endured in schools longer than anywhere else – have provided a sense of urgency among parents to re-establish the values that make up an effective public education: an emphasis on academics, transparency, and accountability, and parent choice. Sean represents these values and will represent the best interests of parents and children in Bedford.

NH Chiefs of Police Oppose Ethical Parental Rights Legislation that Affirms Federal Law Protecting Student Privacy

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-03-07 20:30 +0000

New Hampshire currently has a law that requires informed consent from parents when their children take a non-academic survey in school. Exploiting children while conducting research on them, is not only illegal, but it is unethical too.

Unfortunately, when this law was passed, the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) was exempted. But shouldn’t school administrators still seek parental consent from parents when administering this survey? Of course they should. The administrators in charge of your children should certainly uphold ethical standards. Unfortunately, many do not.

There is now legislation that has been introduced by Representative Ralph Boehm that would remove the YRBS exemption. That would be a good thing ,since parents should consent on all non-academic surveys, not just some. If there is research on their drug use, sexual identity, or any other sensitive topic, school administrators should uphold the highest standards for themselves and the vendors they use to collect this data.

But what happens when a member of our law enforcement opposes informed consent by parents? Shouldn’t he uphold these high ethical standards too? Of course. That is why it was so shocking and disappointing to hear a member of our law enforcement community oppose HB1639.

Please watch this video from the House Education Committee Hearing where David Goldstein (at 5:07:50) Chief of Police from the city of Franklin, New Hampshire testifies in opposition of HB1639. He testified on behalf of the Association of the Chiefs of Police. Why do the Chiefs of Police now stand against parental involvement and parental rights ?

He along with others opposed this important parental rights legislation. Keep in mind if a licensed Child Psychologist administered a survey like this, they could lose their license if they did not seek informed consent from the parents or guardians. (#9) Yes, even those who are educated and licensed must follow a code of ethics.

Now read the testimony below from Mark B. Constantian, MD.  He describes why this kind of research is an experiment on children that it can cause them harm.

I don’t suspect the Chiefs of Police want to cause harm to children, but they are attempting to deny parental consent when gathering this data on children in our public schools. I urge the Chiefs to reconsider their position on this important bill and let’s bring our laws up to speed so ethical standards are followed when conducting any research on our children.
—————————————————————————————————————————————–

Dear New Hampshire Representatives:

I have been a New Hampshire resident since 1978 and practiced Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Nashua for 43 years. All of our four boys attended the Hollis Brookline school system through high school, and I have two granddaughters in the school system now. I write to encourage you to support HB 1639.

There is an easy example of why this legislation is needed.

I have done many years of clinical research.  Any research involving students, according to the Declaration of Helsinki, requires Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. The purpose of such approval, which is rigorous, is to assure that any human experimentation, which includes surveys, is not only safe but likely to produce important new information.

The current Youth Risk Behavior Survey would not pass IRB muster, for several reasons.

First, to my knowledge it is not a metric proven to give reliable information. It is not “controlled,” except by measuring the current data against the data from two years ago. To my knowledge, the YRBS has not been shown to be reliable; and moreover its questions are potentially harmful because they can create confusion in the children’s minds, plant ideas that may not have occurred to them, and invade their privacy in a way that parents may not approve. The YBRS is thus an experiment with no defined goal.

The latest administrative analysis of this data (attached) is naïve. The writer consistently talks about “significant” change with no evidence of any statistical proof, and is excited, for example, that the percent of students who ingest alcohol before sexual intercourse has dropped from 22% to 5% in two years. This is an unbelievable conclusion.

Because the approval of parents is not specifically requested before the survey and “opt in” consent is not required (as mandatory in any IRB experimentation), parents cannot protect their children. It is widely known that the students see the survey as a joke and therefore presumably invent whatever answers they want, so that the results are entirely useless.  YBRS is thus potentially dangerous and yields nothing useful to the educators.

HB 1639 would require affirmative parental consent, which will ensure the safety and reliability of any data. The young students of New Hampshire cannot have less protection than is required of me when I survey consenting adults. This is only one example of educational overreach without parental approval.

More broadly than restraining overreach, HB 1639 provides common sense rights for parents to know and approve their children’s educational content, the right to know who is teaching their children, whether they are safe, and to ensure that the School Board is responsive to parental wishes, all rights that are regrettably and incomprehensibly not currently case.

I strongly encourage you to endorse this bill.

Respectfully submitted,

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON FEDERAL LAW PPRA (Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment)
Federal law requires informed consent from parents:

When must schools get parental consent?

Schools must get parental consent when 1) a required survey, analysis, or examination is 2) funded in whole or in part by the US Department of Education and 3) is being conducted to find out any of the following:

  • Political affiliations of the student or the parent
  • Mental or psychological problems of the student or the student’s family
  • Sex behaviors or attitudes
  • Illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating, or demeaning behavior
  • Critical appraisals of other individuals with whom respondents have close family relationships
  • Legally recognized privileged or analogous relationships, such as those of lawyers, physicians, and ministers
  • Religious practices, affiliations, or beliefs of the student or the student’s parent
  • Income (except as required to determine eligibility for participating in a program where they’d receive financial assistance)

If student participation isn’t required, then notice and opportunity to opt-out would be sufficient. Parental consent is not required for surveys that don’t cover the above categories, but parents generally may opt-out….

The YRBS can certainly be administered to students in any district in New Hampshire. Just like when a consent form is needed to attend a field trip, the YRBS would also need consent from parents. Recently in Hollis, students were given the YRBS survey but no notification was given to parents ahead of time. The current “opt out” law did not work in that district.

This boils down to money. How? Because if there is not enough participation, money could be lost. It’s all about the money!
They want to deny parents their fundamental rights to secure funding. That’s no reason to deny parents their fundamental rights. That’s why we have ethical guidelines and parental rights laws currently in place. Closing this loophole is needed.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: 3/7/22: House Education Committee votes to support HB1639. The vote was down party lines. Republicans on the committee voted to support parental rights, the Democrats voted to oppose. HB1639 now goes to the House floor for a vote. You can contact your State Representatives here, and ask them to support HB1639.

Proof: When Gas Prices Started Upward …

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-03-07 19:00 +0000

The price of gas is no longer a function of the free marketplace – it is now firmly controlled by politics.  Democrat Politics, if you need or want clarification.

 

 

And if it is politically controlled, the Democrats have revealed their hand. They are trying to control your lives.

Sure, the Ukraine-Russia war isn’t helping but if the US was still energy independent as we were under Trump, this wouldn’t be happening at all.

The Free Marketplace, no longer constrained by repressive Democrat politics, gave us cheap energy.

Democrats took that away and made your standard of living worse.

Thank them for it. November is coming.  Put them out in the cold instead of you being cold.

Here is The FDA’s List of Pfizer’s 1,290+ Known Adverse Side Effects for Its Experimental COVID19 “Vaccine”

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-03-07 16:00 +0000

What do NHJournal, SeacoastCurrent.com, InDepthNH.org, The NHBulletin, WMUR, The Union Leader, and likely every other print “newspaper” in the Granite State have in common? All the COVID Vaccine reporting has been favorable and supportive.

I could not find any “articles” that suggested these were anything but safe. But we know that’s not true. We know it from our own reporting. We’ve published both peer-reviewed and first print research. Interviews with actual experts. Hundreds of articles and scores of links to news reports, scientific research, and interviews.

Yesterday I asked if that was the result of more than just plain old bias.

Money from the Feds was laundered through the states to push pro-COVID-vaccine ads. It has also been intimated that this was not the only money that was changing hands. We wanted to know who received Fed dollars and if there might be other inducements that encouraged local and national media to stay away from negative reporting on the experimental Jab.

Is the absence of such reports damning?

The Jab has been an endless opportunity for human interest stories and investigative journalism, but where are these stories? Where is the balanced reporting or curiosity? What happened to “protecting the public interest” from abuses of government?

People were driven out of their jobs for refusing an experimental treatment we have known for some time has serious side-effects including death.

To be clear, we have not provided or received conclusive evidence that the NH media was bought off but anecdotal evidence is another matter.

They all appear guilty by omission. Why did they ignore these stories when it is clear they could have been the only media (outside of sites like this) sharing that research and expert commentary?

I’m not complaining. We’ve gotten tons of traffic as a result of their indifference but why are they still toeing that line?

Last week the FDA released a batch of clinical trial documents they did not want the public to see (Local PDF here). That’s a story.

In that cache is a list of known side effects from the experimental mRNA “vaccines.” Another story, maybe dozens of them if curious reporters went out and found people who got the Jab and experienced any of these side effects. All 1294 known potential side effects.

The mRNA injection has been proven to alter human DNA (in the liver). That seems like big news.

A super-majority of COVID deaths worldwide continue to be among the vaccinated, with only a fraction being unvaccinated. That’s another above-the-fold story. [More at American Greatness]

And most of this is not new.

We’ve known about the risks for quite a while.  Facts in evidence that were hidden, suppressed, even shouted down by politicians, the public health apparatus, and others, and never reported in the local media.

And they are still absent.

A quick search of WMUR and the Union Leader produced no stories about the risks or recent document dumps. And we think this problem goes a lot deeper than that. As referenced in the opening, a search of online “news” sited like NH Journal, Seacoast Current, InDepthNH, and NH Bulletin (for stories on the FDA or Pfizer), are all pro-vaccine?

Were they warned off after taking Pro-Vaxx advertising dollars, or was there other money involved?

How could the lack of coverage be so complete even after the Tuesday FDA doc dump?

And can anyone honestly trust anything they print or broadcast anymore? Ever?

We don’t think so, but that’s up to you to decide.

As promised, here is the list of side effects (local copy) released by the FDA that were known by Pfizer (and the FDA). This is also why it will never be “approved.” And yes, Comirnaty was a smokescreen, and the “media” did nothing to protect you from that lie either.

Is the Chair of the US Congressional Progressive Caucus Inferring That Biden a Despot over Oil?

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-03-07 14:30 +0000

So, despots and dictators are the ones that are keeping gas prices up. And will never let those prices go down for American consumers – got it!

And this is why Progressives hate us that understand history – even if just a year old:

Jayapal: Gas Prices Will Go Up ‘No Matter What’ and We Need to Move Off Fossil Fuels

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Cross Connection,” Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) argued that we have to move off of fossil fuels so we’re “free of the ability of dictators to blackmail us over oil and gas,” and that increasing domestic oil production wouldn’t keep gas prices from increasing because “no matter what we do, prices of gas are going to go up.

Jayapal said, “[I]f we ever want to be truly free of the ability of dictators to blackmail us over oil and gas, we should be investing right here at home in renewable energy technologies. We should be weaning ourselves off fossil fuels so that this situation that we’re in does not happen again, in terms of feeling like we can’t stop Russian oil and gas imports because it’s going to drive up prices here at home. By the way, no matter what we do, prices of gas are going to go up. So, any Republicans who try to say that it’s drill, baby, drill, and that solves the problem, it’s wrong. That is not the case. We are going to see gas prices rise, but it is in service to trying to quell a dictator.”

That there was nothing that could be done is the sad story the Democrats told us before.  Give up, they urged. Not gonna happen, they proclaimed. What they meant is that THEY weren’t going to let it happen as gas prices went up under Obama. It was by design – he told us that he wanted to transform the US and this was one way of doing it. He wanted to make sure that moving around when YOU wanted to was going to be too expensive for normal people. He was going to transform your lives – you had no choice.  By Design – Energy Poverty. Travel Poverty.

Dictator by Democratic means. Isn’t this what Biden, the Democrat Progressives and Eco-socialists doing to us again?  Acting no better than despots?  She complained that it is despots that are now are holding the American population hostage now. Self-awareness much?

A political talking point simply to give them cover as to what THEY want to do anyways. But then she’s saying that NOTHING will change if we start “drill, baby, drill” all over again?  We certainly were told that by Obama & Biden doing that drilling more wouldn’t work.

Then Trump came along and said “Yes, we WILL drill” and prices DID come down and were continuing to drop here in my local area up until Biden was elected.  Knowing what he’d do, prices starting to go up – future Energy Poverty was coming for us all. Day One of the Biden Administration, he made it official.  Prices started to rise just on the expectations of “what’s the next gas shoe to drop” after he killed off Keystone pipeline.

And Jayapal, like Granholm and the rest of the Democrat Gas Despots, are just running yet another con on the American people. THEY know that prices can come down – they just don’t want them to. It’s all about, for them, having Government make all those decisions – not us.  Just like with RGGI (with Sununu’s continued blessing of it enslaving NH Citizens, it’s all about putting the rest of us into Energy Poverty.

So, NH, what are you going to do about CongressCritters Chris Pappas and Annie Kuster, the NH based Democrats who are all in on this shill, come November?

Biden did this, Granholm is doing it, Jayapal is running cover – and Pappas and Kuster are supporting them all.

“You Ever Plowed a Field, Summer?”

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-03-07 13:00 +0000

Mondays are a problem for some folks. Not me. Just another day, and yes, I happen to have to go back to work, but I like my job, so there’s that. But Mondays have a reputation, so I want to share “fun” things on Monday morning.

Short clips with an oh yeah, hey yeah, or hell yeah vibe to them. Good old-fashioned smackdown fun.

This, in my opinion, is fun. It’s not humor, but it is humorous. It’s a straightforward, in-your-face, sh!t eating grin, reality sandwich.

For fans of the Paramount TV series Yellowstone (I am a fan), this is what we’d call John Dutton Porn. A “you think you know something but you really know-nothing and here’s why” kind of a thing.

It’s television, and the story is fiction, but what John Dutton says is an in-your-face fact, delivered the way it should. You think you are morally superior but guess what? You’re not.

And now you have to live with this new knowledge, or you can pretend it’s not true, but it is. This is precisely the sort of thing every self-righteous busybody needs on a Monday or any day of the week.

Happy Monday

The Flag They Want to Vote on for My Town is “Modern” and Soulless

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-03-07 11:30 +0000

Gilford has an unofficial flag right now. It’s not really “New Hampsha” based but to me, this whole idea of replacing it is yet another attempt to replace history that shouldn’t be done.

The flag that Dunn referred to is known as the “Guilford Courthouse Flag,” which flew at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, on March 15, 1781, in Greensboro, North Carolina. The town of Gilford was named by a veteran of that battle, said Dunn, and thus the town has flown the flag during historical celebrations.

The Guilford Courthouse flag is similar to early versions of what became the American flag. The Guilford flag features blue and red horizontal stripes, with a white box in the top left corner filled with 13 blue stars.

It is that latter part that ties NH back to our country’s founding. Consider it a complementary flag in style to the early Betsy Ross flag. It evokes that time, that place, in which our country was founded – a troublesome time (especially for King George) to be sure but on in history, of political philosophy in which a new country was born not of geography or ethnicity but of ideas and aspirations.

As I have studied more of our history during GraniteGrok’s existence, it is that fullness and richness which becomes more and more important.  Without history, one goes adrift. Without history, you can’t figure out how we got to where we are now – and how to work for a future.

Note, too, the founding of Gilford itself – 1812, right in our logo. While the logo really celebrates the Belknap Mountain range and Lake Winnipesaukee, it works – we’re in a resort area. But that’s beside the point.

We have to choose between the above, with all of its handmade and historical fullness of that time and this:

 

 

Sorry, this says nothing at all to me.

I used to be all in for the “change for the sake of change” when I was younger – no longer. One has to prove that there is a good reason for that change before I change my mind. I generally MUCH prefer modern design over older styles as well – clean lines, quiet, and few distractions. If that held in this case, I’d be all for it.

Not this time. WMUR’s titling aside – this is sterile and without meaning. Darren’s explanations of the geometry and the coloration are too cute by half for me. It really shouldn’t NEED an explanation – and that’s the problem. Without the explanation that he gives:

 

His ponderings led him to the shape of a triangle, which is inspired by the town’s mountains. Brown’s flag features a green triangle, for the forests, along the bottom; a blue triangle in one corner for the lakes; a gold triangle in the opposite corner representing labor, agriculture and craftsmanship, and; a white chevron, for the mountains, dividing the three blocks of color.

 

I get the triangle for the mountains and the blue for the Lake. The rest? No clue and I’ve been here for getting on 37 years (and appreciate modern design).

It’s too sterile – did I say that before? Why, yes, I did. I can appreciate all of Darren’s “ponderings” but this is not for me.

History, in this case, wins out. We are losing too much of our history and as I have said before, a lot of it is on purpose. No, I am not ascribing that to Darren – but it would be part of it.

Without history front and center, we become unmoored from our beliefs. We need those ties, that certainty of “place”. Without that, anything can happen.

And yes, there are those that are trying to do exactly that – have us forget our past and sub in a new one.

What Do Nancy, Ted, and Elon Have in Common

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-03-07 02:30 +0000

These three unlikely bedmates, and virtually everybody else in the free world who is not Joe Biden or a member of the Squad, agree we should ban Russian oil immediately.

We could go into the theory that the Biden Family is making money from Russia, China, and Ukraine, But nobody other than FOX News or Dinesh D’Souza would believe us. I think it might be simpler than backdoor deals. I believe it comes down to pure incompetence on Biden and his team.

We have a right-leaning Senator, a left-leaning progressive Speaker of the House, and the owner of the largest electric-powered car company in the world, saying we need to be more energy independent now. You ordinarily could not get these three to agree on the time of day.

The battle in Ukraine is unifying America in our support for Ukraine and its people. The assault is turning people away from Russia and fueling a desire to step up sanctions on Russia and aid to Ukraine. Joe Biden must hear the comments and cries to stop buying a billion dollars of Russian oil per day, but he will not yield. Why? There is no explanation that can make us feel comfortable with the President’s actions.

There is a history and a disturbing pattern linking Russia, Ukraine, and Joe Biden. It was in 2014 that Russia entered Ukraine and captured Crimea. This peninsula off the southern coast of Ukraine in the Black Sea is small, with only 2.4 million people. Its location is more strategic and valuable than its size.

The connection is that this Russian aggression took place while Obama and Biden were in control. Obama was as weak then as Biden is today, and Russia seized on that weakness to take what they wanted in Crimea, knowing they would meet little resistance from Washington. The Obama/Biden team responded with the now famous donation of blankets to the cause.

Ironically, blankets came up yesterday when the weak-hitting Antony Blinken took to the mic and announced the U.S. would again be sending more blankets to Ukraine to help with the fight. Ukraine wants and needs missiles and planes to help ward off annihilation at the hands of the superior Russian military, and we send blankets. I could not believe that Blinken uttered the word, but he did, and it is emblematic of the feckless manner Biden, and his staff has handled this crisis.

There has not been a sighting or word from our President since he headed off to Delaware early Friday afternoon. Instead, we have Blinken and Blankets 2.0 and the announcement that Biden was again going to the bullpen for his Ace, Kamala Harris. This time, Biden is sending Harris to Poland and Romania. This move is to show support to Ukraine.

How?

We know that the Polish and Romania borders are as open as our Southern Border with Mexico. An open and insecure border is one thing that Harris is quite familiar. This master of the word salad could say or do nothing to aid Ukraine.

President Zelenskyy is pleading with the West, with our Senate, directly to our President, but his cries for help are falling short, and we fear time is running out on Ukraine.

They have fought with courage and showed the world what resolve and love of one’s homeland could bring out in people. Their President has been an unlikely man of power and strength who his compatriots would follow into battle, but all of that pride and courage may not be enough.

This is not said with insensitivity to the plight of Ukraine, but if and when they do fall, I hope it is not on a weekend because our President will be resting, and the Do Not Disturb sign is on the door. What a sad showing from the country that claims to be the strongest on earth and the beacon of hope for others. Today, the beacon is dim.

Having control of your data can turn decades of information into advanced analytics. Business intelligence data refers to the applications, infrastructure, tools, and best practices to enable access to improve and optimize decisions and performance. Organizations want timely decision-making that’s also well-informed. However, data analysts want to have a streamlined process that formats raw data across all platforms to avoid any hurdles that could inhibit analytical processing. Business intelligence, also known as BI, makes for an easily deployable virtual environment for easier insights and visuals.

Business intelligence enables data visualizations or graphical depictions. These metrics then help people see and understand their business data faster and more effectively. Interactive data visualizations support drilling down to explore details, identify patterns and outliers, and change which data is processed. This makes it easier to identify emerging trends, the very first step in deriving insight. By simplifying data access, organizations are empowered to improve their systems, then automate and inform actions in real time, and deliver learning for the best outcomes possible.

What are the features of BI technology?


Business intelligence reporting software takes information from one or more data sources and presents it to business analysts in an easy-to-read format. Business users are able to stay informed and get answers to their questions quicker with more meaningful insights into this BI data. This is accomplished through interactive dashboards that scale to thousands of users and not just experienced data analysts. With data analysis software designed to support better decision-making, users can spot trends, identify issues, and generate insights for any BI platform.

With BI dashboards that combine data for real-time summaries, users can view the state of business, track key performance indicators (KPIs), and act faster on the insights they’ve been provided. When software developers embed these dashboards within applications throughout their corporate business model, they make their products more valuable and competitive, benefitting their supply chain and surrounding support systems. These BI tools work with data integration software to take on bI projects as needed based on the data provided and being explored to address potential problems.

 What is BI capable of?


With more of an urgency than ever for real-time data and analytics to address business needs, business intelligence software is allowing for easier connection of data sources. With a wide range of data visualization types, there’s more support for expressions to control the look and behavior of this information and analytics. These platforms across business intelligence solutions offer secure access to business users, making for greater data governance and regulatory practices. This allows for strategic decision-making in a secure environment.

With a metadata layer in place, businesses are able to combine data sources without data warehouse tools that can slow down interactivity among these BI tools. Multi-tenancy, essentially a collaborative BI system, allows for web service-based platforms that are accessible with different formats ranging from HTTP to Java. This allows for quicker export and distribution of these various file types, easily accessible through formatted templates across a business intelligence system. With these frameworks in place, organizations across various industries are able to have better visibility and efficiency, making better business decisions easier.

Why Doesn’t Chris Sununu Have This Kind of “Put My Citizens First” Courage?

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-03-07 01:00 +0000

For all of the fine-sounding words, the  Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) does one thing: takes money from some so that Government will spend it elsewhere.

It doesn’t matter what the fine-sounding words are, what the Politicos and the Environmental Activists yammer about, its results are having Government make energy that allows us to flip on lights, keep warm, keep our foods fresher in the fridge, wash our clothes, and everything else that those nasty power plants sending the electricity to our homes.

And making it more expensive so that said Politicos, pandering for the enviro-votes, and said Activists, believing they are planet Saviors, can feel good about themselves.

RGGI – the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative:

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) is a cooperative, market-based effort among the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Virginia to cap and reduce CO2 emissions from the power sector. It represents the first cap-and-invest regional initiative implemented in the United States.

And it takes someone with the political courage to stand up to those that make the energy more expensive for others, again, simply for the Feelz.  Sadly, that person is not my Governor Chris Sununu, or he would have already done so (or is he one of those said Politicos??). But there is one, just days on the job, acting like a Republican in protecting his citizens (reformatted, emphasis):

Youngkin Poised to Withdraw Virginia From Multistate Climate Pact

Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin is pursuing a multipronged strategy to dismantle climate change regulations and hold down energy costs, his press secretary told The Daily Signal. Government records indicate that Youngkin will rely on a mix of executive action, budget changes, and legislation to withdraw from the 11-state Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative…“The governor pledged to withdraw Virginia from RGGI because of the unfair burden it places on Virginia ratepayers,” Porter said in an interview. “On Day One, he issued an executive order to do just that”.  “The executive action initiated the regulatory process to withdraw,” Porter added, “but he’s also supporting legislative action to make sure future governors cannot unilaterally put Virginia back into this failed and expensive program.”

And that “market-based effort” (yes, scare quotes intentional)?

…In these states, government regulators impose an upper limit or “cap” on the amount of carbon dioxide emissions that power plants are permitted to emit. The initiative also creates “allowances” within interstate auctions that may be traded back and forth among companies subjected to the emission caps.  The idea behind cap-and-trade is to provide energy companies with financial incentives to reduce emissions. Companies that meet or exceed emissions targets may sell any excess allowances to companies that have not done so.

No, this is NOT a market-based effort by any means. Markets get derived by innovators that then get consumers to buy their offerings. Simple and voluntary.

NO one forces those producers to make those products other than the self-interest of getting a return on their efforts.

NO one forces consumers to hand over their money to purchase them, but that is what a market-based approach does. It allows both “Yes, I will” and “NO, I want no part of it.”

The Government doesn’t allow a Yes or a No – that would be a choice. That can’t be allowed – “WE’RE SAVING GAIA!” in lots of other areas as well.

And in this case, because our Education system is so freaking poor, most people drift by that “market-based” propaganda and go “well, okay.”  They shouldn’t as it isn’t.

Once Government gets involved and FORCES something like RGGI, it’s merely government regulations. Government decree, diktat, regulations, OBEY.

And that “financial incentives” bit is just yet another euphemism to put chocolate all over it. Go ahead – watch how fast that “financial incentive” turns into Government Punishment if you don’t play by the Rules that Government set.

And NH Governor Sununu is okay with this. He’s had two years of Republican majorities in the NH Legislature to make this happen.

  • He could have issued Executive Orders…

Sidenote: he’s really good at writing EOs – just look how many he wrote in making the NH Constitution moot under his rubric of “Public Health trumps EVERYTHING.”

…as pre-emptive strikes in advance of lowering our skyrocketing electric bills – he didn’t.

  • He could have written legislation to back up his EOs – he’s not bad at that either. He didn’t
  • He could have announced it during his frequent times on TV in “Gov-splaining’ to the rest of us what’s going on (“Get that Jab, you dolts – and don’t mind that new info that the Pfizer / Moderna mRNA vaxxes actually ARE changing your cells’ DNA (like in your liver)”) – he didn’t.

Limp-wristed, I guess.

Youngkin – look at those bulging political biceps. It’s almost like Youngkin read what I wrote long ago:

The Tennessee Star picked up something that I had written at the very end of this post:

If the NH Republican Party wants to win, and win Consistently, act like you believe in the Platform.  Speak like you do and at each and every turn.  Vote like you do at each and every opportunity.  And Legislate like there’s no tomorrow because two days ago was that “no more tomorrow” – and you blew it

Sununu, not so much. In fact, I’m betting I’m one of the “Extremists” he’s been talking about lately.

November is coming.

How to Be an Anti-Racist in Vermont

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-03-06 23:30 +0000

The topic of anti-racism is a hot one in Vermont, and why shouldn’t it be? Since racism is now an inbred feature to whiteness, Vermont is officially the most racist state in the U.S. after those Maniacal racists at our eastern border. Whiteness is an essential feature of Vermont, particularly during the months of January to December, where the outdoor topography can be seen covered in soft blankets of snow, knitted by an equally racist Mother Nature, while the indoor topography is virtually indistinguishable.

Vermont has fought its natural-born racism since the founding of our bigoted nation being the first to abolish it in 1777, less than one year after uniting the klans, err, States. This claim to early progressivism has served Vermont well, and only a few hundred years later Vermont has replaced the slave abolishing Republicans once in the majority with a hefty long-time racist Democrat party that is working hard to erase its slave-owning history.

This is why, after many long and hard-fought years of media manipulation and campaign chicanery the Dem-Prog (re: woke) leaders in our state have launched a volley of explosive policies aimed at destroying racism in Vermont forever by giving us what every Prog-Dem student of culture knows are the two favorite things loved by all people of color – weed and hookers.

We want to thank Johnny Bananas for this Op-Ed. If you have an Op-Ed or LTE
you would like us to consider, please submit it to Editor@GraniteGrok.com.

It’s no doubt the suppression of these two racially equitable initiatives have been held down by the once anti-racist Conservative-Republican cabal who seek to hold colored people (sic) down with policies intended to keep fathers in the home (patriarchy much?!?), promote small business ownership (can we say systemic tax racism?), and support the birth of their babies (at the expense of women’s rights!).

No thank you honkies!

Thanks to the pale-faced Prog-Dem saviors of the Green Mountain State the brownies will now come flooding into Vermont to take advantage of these new anti-racist initiatives well known to woke crackers in Vermont who grew up soaking in black culture the way all white people in New England have, through rap music.

This year’s Super Bowl half-time show no doubt was as prophetic as it was inspiring for our toke and give Selectboard leaders who could see the writing on the fifty-yard line. I mean, just look at the icons of Afro-American culture spelling it out for us right there on stage – what do they want – weed and hookers.

Dr. Dre, much like Tony Fauci in that he’s not a real practicing doctor, and Snoop Dogg (likewise, not an actual canine) have been echoing this beacon of need for nearly forty years. One might even say chronically singing the same tune. Fittingly they made way for Mary J. Blige to bring the message home by having her grace the mostly racist American public in what was the fashion equivalent of, to use the preferred nomenclature of the hood, a high class ho. Streetwalking royalty son – HOLLAH!

Soon Burlington and Montpelier (fingers crossed) will be hotbeds of multi-cultural hustle and bustle where white men and woman can sit back and enjoy the success of knowing that, after serving those weak-a$$ syrup bottles and rice boxes from insulting our hard to find black neighbors, they’ve defeated racism, once and for all. Nothing says progress like bringing back the world’s oldest profession.

Sadly there is not such good news for pimps who are being told they will find no safe quarter on the streets of Vermont. It’s unclear why these Dolomite-hating libs can’t give a brother a chance to make a mostly honest buck. Having grown up in a neighborhood where ladies of the night plied their trade on Martin Luther King Jr. boulevard (as he would have wanted it), I have no doubt the entrepreneurial spirit of some well-organized hustlers will not be dismayed by a lack of support from the local officials. They never are.

So take a deep breath and hold it in folks, because racial equity, inclusion (sorry pimps) and diversity are a few exciting moments way. Like the mountains, the storefronts, one-hitters, and pockets of some privileged Vermonters are about to get greener.

Granite State Progress Endorses a Republican?

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-03-06 22:00 +0000

Voters across New Hampshire are receiving letters, purportedly from local “neighbors,” urging them to vote in school-board elections next week, but they’re actually a form letter from a leftist group named Granite State Progress.

“Dear Neighbor,” reads one letter received by Jessica Williams, of Wolfeboro, last week. “I wanted to reach out to you about something really important to me: public education.” The letter appears to be handwritten and signed “in solidarity,” by Edie DesMarais, a Wolfeboro Democrat who was a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives from 2017 to 2020. Education is so important to DesMarais that she signed a form letter.

Identical letters, all available to read at granitestateprogress.org, have been received by voters in at least 17 school districts across the state.

“Dear Neighbor,” begins a letter received by voters in the Exeter Regional School District. “I wanted to reach out to you about something really important to me: public education.” Supposedly signed by Molly Cowan, the vice chair of the Exeter board of selectmen, the letter is exactly the same as DesMarais’s—except for the name at the bottom (and the candidates endorsed).

In the letter received by Williams, DesMaris goes on to endorse Brodie Deshaies, the young Republican who replaced her in the House as Wolfeboro’s state representative. Deshaies is now running for the at-large seat on the Governor Wentworth Regional School Board.

“We need leaders who will support a strong public education and represent the values we hold in our community. So I’m asking you to go out and vote for Brodie Deshaies.”

When I asked Deshaies what he thought about being endorsed by a progressive group, he replied, “It’s a local nonpartisan race, and I appreciate voters casting their party affiliation aside and voting based upon the issues.”

Why would progressives like Edie DesMarais (she repeatedly voted to create a state income tax when in the House) support a Republican for a local school board election?

Granite State Progress’s mission statement includes this declaration: “We work year-round to challenge conservative propaganda and make sure that progressive perspectives are heard.” Their website’s banner image features women wearing pink “pussy” hats.

One issue that Deshaies and the Left appear to agree on is late-term abortion.

In the New Hampshire house of representatives, Deshaies, 23, is a sponsor of a bill this session, HB 1609, that would gut New Hampshire’s Fetal Protection Act. Enacted only last summer, the bill prohibits abortions after six months. Prior to that, abortion was allowed up to the moment of birth. Deshaies’s bill removes an ultrasound requirement from the law, essentially negating the six-month limit (since the baby’s age cannot be verified).

But perhaps the key reason that progressives are supporting Deshaies is that his opponent for the at-large school-board seat is a pro-freedom, pro-parent activist who has been battling the school board over mask mandates since the summer of 2020. Her name?

Jessica Williams.

 

 

Williams is a small-business owner in Wolfeboro and a mother with two children in the Governor Wentworth Regional School District. School Board chairman Jack Widmer, of Tuftonboro, has repeatedly threatened to arrest her for her advocacy at board meetings. I documented this in an article at The Federalist in June 2021:

 

Last month, the chair of the Governor Wentworth Regional School Board called the police on Williams because Williams was sitting by herself in a school auditorium unmasked. Wolfeboro Police Chief Dean Rondeau responded to the call but didn’t arrest Williams.

“I don’t think a judge would look kindly on removing a member of the public from a public meeting for not wearing a mask,” Rondeau said.

Last September, Widmer again called the police on Williams, this time because she and several dozen other parents attended a school board meeting in the large school auditorium without masks. Chief Rondeau issued summons to Williams and four others, citing Williams in particular for trespassing and interfering with government operations. The charges were never brought to court.

The Governor Wentworth Regional School Board’s actions are not out of line with other school boards. “Don’t forget, the National School Board Association called parents domestic terrorists,” Williams says.

Deshaies, who was still in college when Covid-19 hysteria began, has been on the sidelines in the fight over mask mandates during the past two years. He told me in October 2020, “If I have to wear a mask to get people to vote for me, I’ll wear a mask.” He was wearing a mask at the time. We were outdoors, standing on the sidewalk.

Williams is running for a seat on the school board that has repeatedly tried to use the power of the state to silence her “power to the parents” message, so it makes sense that the far-left in New Hampshire is all-in for her opponent, Deshaies.

“Granite State Progress has previously attacked me and called me and other House Republicans, ‘racist’ (and to be clear, I’m not a racist),” Deshaies stated in an email.

“I’m the only candidate in this race who has not attacked their rival,” he added. However, Deshaies took to Facebook later that day to accuse Williams of waging a “smear campaign” against him for posting an image of the letter she received from Granite State Progress. “When some can’t win with honesty, they resort to dishonesty. It’s clear my opponent has become desperate.”

In another post, to the Wolfeboro Community Group on Facebook, Deshaies blasted Williams: “At the end of the day, you can’t lie your way to victory. You can only show voters what you stand for. This race is truly one about character and integrity. It’s about who will put the community (our parents, students and teachers) first. I will not attack my opponent. I believe that level of desperation shows lackluster leadership capabilities.”

Calling your opponent “dishonest” and “desperate” and accusing her of lying is an attack, of course, but this is politics and all’s fair in politics.

On Tuesday, March 8, voters in Brookfield, Effingham, New Durham, Ossipee, Tuftonboro, and Wolfeboro will choose between the young Deshaies and the firebrand Williams.

Remember: Joe Biden and the Democrats Did This to Gas Prices

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-03-06 20:30 +0000

We have Democrats absolutely THRILLED that gas prices (thanks to Biden’s killing off pipelines and access to our own oil) are soaring. Instead of being energy independent, we are now beholden to both Middle Eastern despots and this guy.

The one that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis called an authoritarian gas station attendant with some legacy nuclear weapons from the old Soviet Union.

A blast from Obama’s first term:

  • Energy Secretary Steven Chu: “Somehow, we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

That would have been $8-$10/gallon. And now from Obama’s third term (aka, SloJoe):

  • Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm: “We’re working through an energy transition. And we’ve gotta start by adding energy. And the reality is we have to take some time to get off of oil and gas.”

Say goodbye to fossil fuels. The bureaucrats in Washington have decided that they are too detrimental to the planet so you have to drive a new electric-powered car. They are not interested at all in lowering gas prices. They are happy to see you pay more for gas because it’s all part of their plan to “transition” us away from fossil fuels.

 

They are bound and determined to take OUR choice of energy sources, especially gas for our cars, away from us.

GasThese Democrats believe they “know what is best for you knuckle-dragging domestic terrorists”.  Sorry, this is NOT The Proper Role Of Government to be making such decisions (just like Bush and Obama did with forcing us to LED light bulbs because “it’s good for you”.

Back to gas prices; I did something I rarely do – ended up taking yesterday off as a “family” day (to the dismay of some).  As I passed a gas station near me heading towards Concord in the morning, I watched the electronic gas station price sign flip from $3.96 / gallon to $4.04.  When I returned early evening, it had already risen to $4.19. I have to make a run to a store later on this afternoon. I’m not sure what to expect.

Sure, the war that Russia started has had play in this but more in that Biden is suffocating that industry.  To the detriment of us all.

Take over healthcare (done), take over energy (in process), guess who is left in charge?

No longer We the People.

An Open Letter to the Citizens of Belknap County

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-03-06 19:00 +0000

On Tuesday evening, Feb. 22nd, I was elected to fill the vacant seat on the Gunstock Area Commission.

When a new Commissioner is elected to replace a sitting Commissioner, administration of the oath of office is done at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Commission, when the outgoing member then steps down.

But when a new Commissioner is elected to fill a vacancy, as I was, the oath can be given right away to fully constitute the Commission. This is done all the time not only in NH but in other States across the nation and in the Federal government. As such, I was sworn in that night in front of the public.

Contrary to the attack ads run against me in the Laconia Daily Sun., I am not a “free-stater” and strongly believe in the sovereign State of New Hampshire and the Constitution that empowers it. Yes, the election process for a Gunstock Commissioner is political, but only in the sense that the choice was made by the elected Representatives from Belknap County. Rest assured, I have not been asked, nor have I made any promises whatsoever, to support any agenda from the County delegation or any other party. In fact, had I any hint that I would be expected to be someone’s “puppet,” I would never have applied for the position.

We want to thank Gunstock Commissioner David Strang, MD for this Op-Ed. If you have an Op-Ed or LTE
you would like us to consider, please submit it to Editor@GraniteGrok.com.

 

Because I was elected by the Representatives of the citizens of Belknap County, I consider myself accountable to those same citizens. As such, I have an obligation to listen to you when it comes to the changes proposed in the “Master Plan” for Gunstock.

For the record, I do not support the sale of the mountain, nor do I think it could legally be done. I’m also highly skeptical of leasing the operation of the resort to outside management. Look at the problems that Mt. Sunapee is currently encountering with its management lease to the Vail Corporation to understand why I feel this is not a good idea. Gunstock is on sound financial footing right now while managed by the County and I will work to keep it that way.

When it comes to improving Gunstock, I fully support modernizing its lifts to allow more skiers and boarders to use the facility. I would also be interested in opening new ski runs to reduce trail crowding if legally allowed. The complete Master Plan, however, has several features that are concerning to many of you.

Recently, two conservation groups have come forward stating that the opening of new trails and the proposed construction of a hotel would violate existing agreements on the usage of the land. That also appears to include the proposed road to the summit and construction of a restaurant there. Ignoring these concerns might expose us to needless litigation and therefore I think we should address these concerns before the plan proceeds any further.

As these two groups have offered to discuss these concerns with the Commission, I plan to invite them to the March 23rd meeting to open a public dialogue and further this process. Until this happens, at our March 1st Special Meeting, the Commission voted to pause the Master Plan.

I also feel the Commission needs greater input from the citizens of Belknap County. I’ve heard from many of you who are concerned about the environmental impact of a road to the summit and restaurant. Once we fully understand the concerns from the two conservation groups, I will be advocating for a series of listening sessions around the County before the Commission commits to any development.

True representatives of the people, as the Commissioners are, should want this kind of input before putting a single shovel into the ground or cutting a single tree. As your newly elected Commissioner, I pledge to listen to and address your concerns as we work together to maximize the potential of this cherished County-owned asset.

Respectfully,

David Strang, MD
Gilmanton, NH

“Pause” to Check This Out – No Global Warming for Over 7 Years …

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-03-06 17:30 +0000

New England has weird weather, so it’s ripe for abuse by people with a political agenda. But as we like to point out, their crusade is the fight against Global Warming rebranded as climate change as an excuse to embrace Marxist economic theory.

The only thing more spurious than Climate Cult dogma might be Marxist theory, but neither has proven capable. Their predictions fail at every turn, but rather than admit defeat, they dig in the heels on their freshly polished jackboots and give it another go.

Global Warming!

The Warmists may not call it that, but the entire cult turns on a false premise. That man-made influences are generating so much CO2 that if we don’t give up our freedoms and paychecks to the crooks in government, the planet will inevitably warm to the point that it is uninhabitable.

This is rubbish. First, most of Earth’s history was uninhabitable for humans. Second, a bunch of politicians and activists can’t change that if it happens again. And third, they don’t even mean to try.

And from the record, where’s all this warming?

The Global Mean temperature has shown no warming for seven years and five months.

 

 

 

The “trend since late 1978 represents an increase of just 0.2% in absolute global mean surface temperature – hardly a crisis, still less an emergency.”

And we just exited a solar maximum and entered a solar minimum. What we see here over the past few years is likely to be the norm. A flat or declining global mean temperature. At least for the next few decades.

The media has girded its loins for a fresh propaganda war in response. The reporting will continue to be stupidly one-sided with over-the-top headlines, but the facts will remain the same.

There’s no crisis. Nothing they suggest would fix it if there were. It’s not even about that.

They Thought the Name “Gypsy” Was Offensive So they Changed It!

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-03-06 16:00 +0000

Some find the word gypsy offensive. It connotes a less than flattering stereotype of the Romani people. The Entomological Society of America took this to heart and decided to do their part to roll back the stigma by renaming an infamous critter.

The Gypsy Moth and its caterpillar.

It’s like the Democrat party. When there are lots of them, vast swaths of the landscape are stripped bare. But that’s not the only damage the caterpillar does, or at least that’s what the folks at The Entomological Society of America were thinking.

 

[Jessica] Ware says the moth does hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of damage every year in the eastern United States. But the moth does other damage, too, with its common name. Since it was first released from a lab in Massachusetts in the 1800s, it’s been called the “gypsy moth.”

 

Gypsy is a slur, and they wanted to change it, so they embarked on a mission.

 

After getting nearly 200 suggestions, consulting with more than 1,000 people and putting the final choice out for public comment, the group came up with a new name. The Entomological Society voted to accept it and officially announced the new name on March 2.

 

The spongy moth.

The bug folks say there’s lots of global precedent for the change. Other nations’ descriptions of the critter invoke the reference. They think it’s an excellent choice, but will anyone adopt it outside their community?

Probably not.

It’ll begin showing up as a spongy moth in print, textbooks, journals, and people will wonder what that is (it’s the gypsy moth!). It could be decades before the change approaches critical mass in the collective consciousness if it even manages to achieve escape velocity and arrive outside the cloistered scientific community.

I’m sure Google will be happy to help, but not yet. And not just caterpillars.

 

 

 

But since we are talking about the caterpillar (and the moth).

 

 

If Gypsy is offensive, you’ll need to convince the #wokest tech company of all, or it’s never going to take. And even then, it never may.
