My thoughts on the Obama’s 30 minute presentation.
Archive for October, 2008
I’m still in the process of processing my thoughts on Obama’s 30 minutes presentation last night.Â Here’s what I think is a very good assessment from Chris Matthews for now.
I’ve included the 30 minute presentation for all that missed it (more…)

IN THEIR OPINION
Heard widely or not, it’s a word that dehumanizes

Did you ever have the taste for really good pizza, or something you just wanted? Well, I did recently, and I stopped at Larry and Joe’s, a fine Italian Restaurant on Newark Avenue that has excellent pizza pie. But after 30 seconds of being in the popular spot, I forgot why I was there.
You see, at one of the tables a group of youths adorned with the uniform shirts of the nearby high school were conversing, very loudly. Not unusual for their age, but in one sentence I heard the “N” word referenced at least four times and no, it was not used as a term of endearment. (more…)
so what is this one saying to you?
Is it better to be honest or supportive if a love one asks for your opinion?

Is just me or doesn’t thisÂ have a SNL skit vibe to it?
It could be, if you’re wearing an M-Dress — a silk garment that doubles as a mobile phone. Produced by UK firm CuteCircuit, the M-Dress works with a standard SIM card. When the dress rings, you raise your hand to your head to answer the call.
This futuristic fusion of fashion and technology is becoming more common as clothes designers are increasingly incorporating electronics into their garments.
So what do you think? Is this something to look forward too?

I am asking a very honest question here, as a fan of course. Do you ever think that you are letting life pass you by, minutes at a time for over thinking? Do you think that by over analyzing your life and life in general, you are missing out on reality?
Granted, your writing is amazing but in order to create amazing work you are required to invest plenty of time and energy on a constant basis. So, what is your response? Thanks!
from the TTM post “a day of reflection“
I don’t ever think my life is passing me by simply because I’m too involved in it.
Now I would be wasting my time ifI was just sitting around just thinking about stuff without putting anything into action. You see my writing is the execution of my thoughts that adds to my life as well as to all those who are seeking to create a positive change in their life. So all the time that’s spent searching for that perfect thought always gives more than it takes.
As far as me missing out on reality, uhmm…I really think that’s all relative. I’m pretty sure that I’m missing out on some aspects of someone else’s reality…just not mine!!!
I leave you with an excerpt from “Thank You and You’re Welcome”…”People who say what they think and then do what they say normally get what they want out of life.”
AÂ great quoteÂ byÂ Epic Recording Artist, Tori Amos worth sharing.
“There’s room for everybody on the planet to be creative and conscious if you are your own person. If you’re trying to be like somebody else, then there is isn’t.â€�

The most valuable thing you can make is a mistake – you can’t learn anything from being perfect.
Psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman has designed and constructed a large-scale multi-media space that aims to calm even the most stressed out of minds. To help promote the University of Hertfordshireâ€™s Health and Human Sciences Research Institute Showcase, Wiseman reviewed the scientific research into relaxation, and has created what is being billed as â€˜The worldâ€™s most relaxing room.â€™ During the Showcase, which runs from 21-24 October at the Universityâ€™s de Havilland campus, groups of up to ten visitors at a time will be invited to enter this large and unusual space, lie on soft matting and rest their head on lavender-scented pillows. In each fifteen minute session, people will be bathed in a calming glade-like green light, listen to a specially composed soothing soundtrack, and look at a completely clear artificial blue sky.
â€œThe pace of modern-day life, credit crunch, and financial crisis is making many people feel very stressed and so we have created this space to help them relaxâ€�, noted Professor Wiseman. (more…)
This is an article from independent.co.uk that I found to be very interesting and unfortunately quite long (you allÂ know that I’m not much on reading…LOL).Â With so manyÂ points presented,Â I decided toÂ post theÂ article in it’s entirety.Â
Doctors can now tell us which habits may extend our lives â€“ and just how much extra time they give us.

People who are happy, having an active sex life, and who avoid debts, outlive the miserable, abstainers and the poor, as do chocolate eaters, churchgoers and vegetarians.Â New research shows exactly how many years longer people can live by adopting healthy behaviours â€“ from stopping smoking and losing weight to eating less meat and being positive.
A Harvard University study that monitored 600 people for 60 years shows that seven lifestyle factors are key to determining how well we age â€“ avoiding alcohol abuse, not smoking, having a stable marriage, exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy weight, developing good coping mechanisms and pursuing education.
“Successful ageing isn’t simply a matter of genes or fate. (more…)

Very funny skit though…LOL!!!

First let me say that I think stress is a state of mind and not a state of being.Â A great quote by Wayne Dyer says, “when you change the way you’re looking at something, what you’re looking at will change.”Â
Although the days of profitable short term investmentsÂ are long gone , I think the economy is in the midst of announcing a sale on long term investments.Â There are many long terms investment opportunities out thereÂ if you open your mind to them.Â

This is the first episodeÂ of the BMT (Business Minds Thinking) Series.Â Episode 1Â featuresÂ the mega successful, yet very low key artist KAWS.
In the BMT series, the objective is to have a conversation based on the same 3 questions with various people who are successful in their field. The goal is to reveal that behind every success…there is a business mind thinking!
I will reveal what this picture is as well as my thoughts tomorrow.

I’ve spent most of today reflecting on the last 24 hours of my life. It felt as if I had just walked through a portal to a different reality. What I found to be the most strange was my extreme comfortableness in this new realm. And then it hit me, my outside world was starting to resemble my inside world. (more…)

As young men, Sakiya Sandifer and superstar rapper Kanye West traveled in the same circles while growing up in Chicago. Eight years ago, their paths crossed yet again in New Jersey.
“I was living in Perth Amboy and Kanye was in Hoboken,” says Sandifer. “We created an adult friendship. Later on, I was behind the scenes, helping him get his ideas out.”
This summer, Sandifer, a businessman and writer who at his core defines himself as “a natural thinker,” helped West get his ideas out in a big way co-authoring the rapper’s first book, “Thank You and You’re Welcome,” (self published, $10).
The book, available online, has sold more than 500,000 copies so far.
“We wanted to write it in one voice,” says Sandifer, who now resides and maintains an office in Downtown Jersey City. “We wanted to share with people some of the skill sets and tools we’ve applied to attain success. It’s about getting people to know that it’s up to them to think about building their own houses.” (more…)

In a recent issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, doctors at Children’s Hospital in Denver describe how they removed hearts from infants 75 seconds after they stopped.Â The infants were declared dead of heart failure, even as their hearts, in new bodies, resumed ticking. (more…)
This is in no way an endorsement for either candidate, but I think I’ve figured outÂ why there has been such an embrace of Sarah Palin.Â Like to hear it, well here it goes…not since the so called golden years of “Leave It To Beaver” has there beenÂ such an attractive women being this obedient!

While most icebergs are white due to tiny bubbles trapped inside, which scatter the light in every direction, some pick up a multitude of colors due to various natural phenomena. (more…)
From 1930 until 1960, the most popular female contraceptive was Lysol disinfectant and it was also marketed as a feminine hygiene product.
I wonder what current products being used today will meet the same fate? (more…)
I know this might not be the politically correct thing to say, but…LIFE ISN’T FAIR AND IT’S BEST TO GET OVER IT!!!
It is impossible for all things to be equal. I think it’s quite unfair for one to even think life is suppose to be equally fair. In order to have winners, you must have losers. You can’t have pretty unless there is ugly. There can’t be a “Mr. All That” without a “Mr. All Wack”.
So I ask you (in all fairness), are the lazy equally as deserving as the ambitious? Should the ignorant have the same as the intelligent? Are the least selling entitled to be compensated the same as the top selling?
Be sure to keep this thought in mind, defining yourself allows you to determine what’s fair to you.
