Crowdfunding Corner: Ulzi App is Personal Freedom through Artificial Intelligence 

I love this app.

It’s a sobering statistic that many women know all too well: 1 in 4 women will likely be assaulted during her college career.



Troubled after learning about this ominous statistic, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo graduates, Maxwell Fong and Elan Timmons, were inspired to create a small online platform where people could share their personal stories about sexual assault. After receiving hundreds of emails, the duo wanted to do something more so they began to work closely with sexual assault survivors and supporters to develop Ulzi, (http://ulzi.com/), a personal safety smartphone app that eases the concern about the safety of your loved ones or yourself.

On indigogo at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/personal-freedom-through-artificial-intelligence-apps-community#/

Ulzi is here to help.

Through emergency notifications, GPS tracking, safe route planning, and artificial intelligence, your phone and your community can always have your back, and you’ll have peace of mind when it comes to your loved ones’ safety.

Starting at just $8.

Kindle Book Pick of the Week: Ali on Ali

A book from Ali's daughter, Hana Ali.

Go inside the Ali family like never before.

Compiled and written by his daughter Hana Ali, with sportswriter Danny Peary, Ali on Ali brings together a remarkable mix of Ali’s 70 most humorous, poignant, inspirational, political, and philosophical quotes, all with their origins.

Here’s Ali’s enduring boast, “I am the greatest!”—and how it was inspired by professional wrestler Gorgeous George. The story behind one of the most memorably poetic lines of the century—“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” The heard-round-the-world defiance of “I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong,” and its moving context. And the stories behind quotes ranging from outrage—“We been in jail for 400 years,” to inspiration—“I hated every minute of training, but I said ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion,’” to that infectious combination of humor and bravado—“If you even dream of beating me you better wake up and apologize.”

Get it in Kindle form and keep all the great Ali quotes with you at times.

Police try to unlock phone with dead man's finger

Wow

Florida authorities went to a funeral home and used a dead man’s finger to try to unlock his cellphone as part of their investigation.

Thirty-year-old Linus Phillip was killed by a Largo police officer last month after authorities say he tried to drive away before an officer could search him.

At the funeral home, two detectives held the man’s hands up to the phone’s fingerprint sensor but could not unlock it.
