AMD isn’t the only one that dislikes Intel. Some Jewish persons don’t like Intel too..
Hundreds of ultra-Orthodox Jews have demonstrated at Intel Corp’s new electronic chip plant in Israel in protest against work taking place at the site on the Jewish sabbath.
The protesters said on Saturday it was a desecration of the Sabbath, which runs from Friday night to Saturday night.
They were dispersed by police and a company spokesman said the plant was operating within the law and would continue to do so.
Intel, the world’s biggest chip manufacturer, opened the west Jerusalem plant for installation work before its inauguration on Sunday.
Where these people don’t like Intel for religious reasons, some in Coralles, New Mexico think Intel is poisoning them.
Please understand that the new chemicals that are being used up there are causing illnesses as serious as we had in the 1990s. Vison is blurred, eyes are burning and skin is peeling off the eylids. One breath of the toxic air causes choking, coughing and in Patricia’s case gasping for air. The toxins collect in her west side patio and in her house. With me it settles all around my property and comes in the house. This morning my eyes were swollen shut and inflamed I could hardly see. Each day my vision seems to be getting worse
I should note that the State of New Mexico cleared Intel of making people sick in 2004 but that decision was very controversial.
Here’s some video I shot of President Obama’s drive to Rio Rancho High School on Thursday. It was recorded and uploaded in HD to YouTube.
The first part of the video is the drive down Loma Colorado. I couldn’t drive and film at the same time so set the camera on the dashboard. You can see the camera crews and protesters on the left. The New Mexico Independent says there were about 100 protestors.
The second part of the video shows the presidents cadillac one and the following motorcade driving up Northern Blvd. The Lowes parking lot gave a great vantage point. In retrospect I should have walked down and filmed from the corner of Northern Blvd and Loma Colorado.
For some reason strangers always come up and talk to me and a several people asked me why we were all watching. Many were pissed that they couldn’t drive down Northern Blvd.

KRQE has Obama’s address on YouTube as well.
Today I took a trip to Santa Fe with my parents. There isn’t a whole lot there, for being the capital city of New Mexico. No high rises, just a small square in the middle of the city. A lot of artsy shops and Indian jewelry surround the square. It was pretty cold, under 40 degrees, so we didn’t stay long. Yeah yeah, 40 isn’t very cold compared to some places but it’s cold enough not to want to be in.
I’m having some problems with my Camera. Take the image titled “Looking tword the cathedral”, Images that are dark sometimes have some graininess to them. I also find that I get about 2-3 corrupt pictures. I don’t know if this is some problem with the memory card or the camera. There are a few images I took of the monument in the center of the square, where they removed the word savage describing the indians, that were corrupt.
There wasn’t any protesters in the plaza today but there were some along the way.
