Freedom of speech is one of our most protected rights as American citizens. However, it pains me to see how mere accusations can ruin another persons reputation, either professionally or personally, destroying a lifetime of work and effort in the blink of an eye. If the recent charges against Herman Cain are proven true, then he should suffer the consequences. If not, it will go down as one of the worst character assassinations in recent memory. Unfortunately, much damage has already been done regardless of the outcome, and many good people will be paying the price.
In our ultra-techno... (more)
This economy is growing steadily worse. We see it everyday with continued layoffs, further drops in the housing arena, jittery stock markets, and a stubborn unemployment rate that doesn’t want to budge. All of these are coupled with the most negative political atmosphere since the gloomy days of the Great Depression. Money affects everything we do. Like bright sunshine or a dark, ominous cloud constantly floating overhead, money represents a huge part of what drives us from birth until death. It’s the reason why most roll awake in the morning, draining 95% of the population’s minds with periodic... (more)
I don’t think many knew, besides his inner circle, that Steve Jobs could’ve possibly beaten his fatal cancer if he had only taken his doctors advice and succumbed to traditional medical procedures, particularly, an operation which could’ve removed his tumors much sooner than he decided. This information has been coming out as the release of his authorized autobiography arrive on everyone’s Kindle, I-Pad, and Bookshelf.
Now, this wasn’t all that surprising to me. After all, he’d turned to experimental treatment procedures, alternative medicine for pain and healing, and spiritual advisors... (more)
Everyone from psychologists to astrologers have tried figuring out what provides that all-wonderful, physiological reaction that takes place when man and woman meet for the very first time. What turns your skin moist and warm, your eyes dilated and sleepy eyed, and your blood pressure spiking to astronomical levels, surging with lust upon first glance. Many have crashed a car while staring out the window, or even fainted at first sight at their one-in-a-million guy or girl. But, no matter why or when it happens, all of us are always on the lookout for our next sweat-filled, throw-your-hair-back,... (more)

The world has lost one of the greatest innovators of our time, Steve Jobs. So I find it only fitting to say a few things about where he’s going from here, at least, in my viewpoint.
When you think of the truly great inventors, geniuses, and business pioneers of the worlds history very few names stand out. I’m talking about the ones who REALLY changed the way we live our lives (i.e. Henry Ford, Walt Disney, Edison, The Wright Brothers, Einstein, and now Steve Jobs). They literally altered the course of our history and made things that drastically improved our very existence. Now that... (more)
All of us experience challenges, along with moments of pain, stress, and tension. It's just part of what makes us human as we travel through our individual journeys. However, one thing I've noticed is that those who carry the ability to laugh and allow humor to always be at the forefront of their demeanor are some of the happiest people I know. When life gives them lemons they make lemonade, when problems or struggles try and come up against them, they shrug them off and quickly pull a joke from their basket of endless humor. As they face obstacles which would cause most to look for... (more)
I live in Dallas and am a proud Texas native. So naturally, when fall rolls around I tend to glue my attention inside the TV set on Sunday afternoons in order to watch my beloved Dallas Cowboys. I know, they haven't exactly torn up the playoffs in over a decade and have had many organizational issues, but they're still my team and will be forever. Their recent win against the 49ers increased my hope of Super Bowl contention while watching the next to last play giving them their first victory of the season. It also showed the appearance of a come-from-nowhere upcoming athlete. Out of... (more)
The recent death of singer, Amy Winehouse has made us think of so many others whose fame, at such an early age, has turned out to be more of a curse than a privilege. I remember when Elvis Presley died. I was fifteen at the time, and was a bit too young to really grasp what had happened to such an enormous talent.The height of his career had mostly been in the decades before me, but his popularity as an American Icon was greater than ever and his legacy will live on through eternity. What happened to Elvis, like so many other musicians and actors: Michael Jackson, Jim Morrison, Janis... (more)
Is it just me, or has our society become increasingly, narcissistic? Up until the past few years, I really hadn't even heard this word used before. But, to start things off, some of its meanings are stated below from the online source, Wikipedia: Narcissism is a term with a wide range of meanings, depending on whether it is used to describe a central concept of psychoanalytic theory, a mental illness, a social or cultural problem, or simply a personality trait. Except in the sense of primary narcissism or healthy self-love, "narcissism" usually is used to describe some kind of problem... (more)
