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.

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.

We all know about the hype surrounding “The Interview” and small cyber battle which ensued between North Korea and the United States. It was not much of a battle considering North Korea attacked Sony Entertainment’s database while the U.S. did one better… We shut down the internet in North Korea.
So, when it was apparent that no more “personal” emails or other data about Sony was going to come out (at least for now) it decides to release the movie in small theaters and to be viewed on Netflix and YouTube.
Sweet, now we can watch it without having to go to the theater or wait for OnDemand. We have Apple TV which allows for the viewing of YouTube videos on your television.
So, my wife pays the $5.99 to view the movie through her iPhone. Download successful. Then when we try to view it through the Apple TV… Nothing!
We tried and tried to view it through Apple TV and still nothing. Was this a conspiracy hatched between Sony, Apple, Netflix, or something more perhaps.
Has my family been dragged into this cyber war?
Seriously though maybe our home entertainment setup just sucks. It is ridiculous to get so worked up about a movie that may not be good (never know until it is seen).
I am just venting my frustration with technology at the moment. Perhaps, it is high time to go out and do something instead of suiting down and watching television. It is a lot healthier in the long run.
