MC2 Post 1067 Google Gets a Black Eye. How to Change Google’s Black Navbar Back To White





Google knew This Change was a BoneHead Idea,

but they tried it anyway.


How to Change Google’s Black Navbar 
 
Back To White


======================================

The userscript works in the Firefox web browser, Google Chrome and Opera. Chrome users can simply install the script right away on the script project page.

Firefox users need to install Greasemonkey or Scriptish first before they can do so. Both are add-ons for the web browser that add userscript support to it.

The install button becomes active after one of the add-ons has been installed in the Internet browser.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 
 
 
The userscript, named as Google Light Navbar, reverts to the old navigation bar color persevering all links, and working as it used to. Below you can see the change in interface after installing the script.  (Wingman, I put it at the Top..)

MC2 Post 1066 Why I Hate Seeing Michio Kaku on the News

Michio on ABC News



Michio Kaku, is one of my favorite science book writers 
(on Audible: Parallel Worlds and Physics of the Impossible) 
and he's on News Again...

This Is Not Good...
 

Physicist Speaks On Concerns With Material At Los Alamos Lab

This Usually Means We Have Some Nuclear Spokesmen 
 
Telling Us:  
 
"We Have Nothing To Worry About".

 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kaku said no one has ever fully tested the lab under real fire conditions.


“What happens if the fire spreads to the very heart of the laboratory? At that point, we have to cross our fingers hoping that ‘secure sites remain secure,’” Kaku said.

MC2 Post 1064 Wildfire Closes Los Alamos National Laboratory




Los Alamos National Laboratory will be closed for all nonessential personnel on Monday in the wake of a raging blaze called the Las Conchas fire that sparked about 12 miles southwest of the town of Los Alamos and quickly swelled to more than 3,500 acres, or more than 5.4 square miles.
