Recent, events involving cyberhacking has shown that the new stage for warfare will be in cyberspace. The news is full of stories such as this where one nation launches a cyber attack on another nation’s system.

The United States and China are just one example (of course an exchange between the world’s two largest economies is going to garner the most attention). But how many other cyber attack exchanges occur between other countries? Russia? Iran? Japan? Israel? India? Pakistan?

The list can go on and on. The world wide web is truly the New Wild West.

Technology is constantly evolving which will lead to different types of cyber attacks and viruses. If there is one thing that Edward Snowden did bring to light is that nations are always looking for new ways to take out their competition.

Sadly, it is We, the People who are caught in the crossfire most of the time. But, that is topic for another time.

Just remember folks to practice safe cyber viewing and update your antivirus software regularly.

I will take the red pill, please.

The Matrix is a classic movie with a lot of food for thought. It is so easy to get caught up in the collective BS of the world that one forgets the things that really matter.

The hype of the world messes with us all at some point. We are constantly bombarded with images of death, violence, and all sorts of misery. Not all the news of the world is bad but the media focuses on the bad most of all. All of this can be a bummer.

Yet, in order for us to create a better world we need to better ourselves first. It has been said that change starts from within. This is what Russell Simmons seems to be addressing here. We need to not allow ourselves to be poisoned by the negativity in this world. Life can get us down but we need to lift ourselves up and this starts with what is between our ears.

It is finding peace within ourselves and once we can achieve this then we can be a positive impact on the world.

So, to quote one of Mr. Simmons’ former Def Jam artists, Public Enemy:

“Don’t Believe the Hype!”

No more trips to the clinic for a urinalysis (perhaps). This seems like a great tool to share info with your doctor. Imagine getting your lab results in minutes and not hours or days.


I was jesting about not having to go to a clinic to do a drug test. Having this unit at home would make it to easy to cheat on a drug test.

It would be nice to share data with your doctor electronically without having to go wait in their office. The wonders of technology cease to amaze.

Never give up on your dreams

Inspiration for writers…

Ambrose Redmon said that.

Fear is an impulse, or like the tattoo on my arm says, “Fear is the mind killer.” Frank Herbert said that. In Dune. So you can’t stop being afraid, but you can fight fear, you can control it.

I don’t think I ever told you how I became a writer. Or if I did, it was long ago.

It is funny how there are still people who think that global warming is a hoax. And the new Congress is full of these naysayers. Seriously, are they that naive or just following the directives of their corporate sponsors? In some cases it seems a little of both but mainly the latter. So, sad.

What a dolt! He thought he would cash in on the movie then North Korea, I mean, Sony pulled the plug.

The Sony hack even affected small time entrepreneurs. Now, he wants his money back? This is a perfect example of buyer beware.
