Elon Musk and The New Twitter
Elon Musk has been described in a variety of colorful terms over the years. Some call him a genius, others use the word eccentric, still others use more intense terms that are both positive and negative. One thing that is hard to argue against is that Musk is an innovator.
Sorry Atheists, Everyone’s Got Religion
When we thing about the concept of religion, there are probably some very specific details that enter our thought process. Perhaps we might think about places of worship such as churches, temples, synagogues or mosque. Then we might focus on leaders in specific attire and rituals. And then we might focus on traditional texts and books that are the foundation of various faiths. And while those things may be a big part of some religions, that is not what defines the idea.
Abortion: Let’s Talk Truth, Not Hyperbole
While abortion has been a controversial topic for decades, the proverbial s%#* hit the fan this summer when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Dobbs v. Jackson decision that effectively overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade of 1973.
Ways To Save In This Tough Economy
While the economy here in the United States continues to get worse, and inflation seems to hit high record levels every time you look at the statics, it is getting harder and harder for the average person to make ends meet every day. People are being forced to get creative in their budgeting.
The Diminishing Value of A College Education
When I started college back in the late 90’s, it was a time in which such an education was largely considered essential. Sure, there were some exceptions like professional athletes, entertainers and brilliant or simply lucky business men who started something global out of their basement or garage. But as a general rule, if you wanted to be successful in life, you had to do it through a college education.
The Current Economy, Worst In My Lifetime
We have high wages, low unemployment and some rather positive economic conditions in some areas. So, why would I say that this is the worst economy in my time on this planet (42 + years)? Well, it is not that hard to understand when you break it down.
The Art of Jim McCormick, M.D.
Many have made the claim that we either predominantly use the left or the right side of the brain attributing one side to the artistic and creative and the other the the logical or analytical. While this has been largely proven to be a false idea, many people still subscribe to the theory that people are either inclined to focus on the arts or the sciences. And, in some ways, there may be good reason for that. Many people do tend to gravitate to one or the other even if they may be skilled at both.
Supreme Court Correcting The Abortion Error
There is no doubt that the U.S. Supreme Court has made some major blunders in their history. After all, the members of the court are human like the rest of us and capable of mistakes. Haven’t we all messed up from time to time? One of the more notorious instances of this was the Plessy v. Ferguson case establishing the “Separate but Equal” doctrine for segregated education. Some would argue that the ruling to allow a mandate to purchase health insurance in 2012 was pretty bad too. But perhaps the most egregious instance was the nationwide legalization of abortion in Roe v. Wade in 1973.
Why Mirrorless Cameras Are My Go-To Option
It was quite a few years back when I became more serious about photography. I graduated from the basic point and shoot to what some call a bridge camera. That would be something of a hybrid between a point and shoot and a digital SLR. Basically, this is a camera with a longer zoom and lens that may or may not allow for attachments to extend or adjust the lens. But the key thing here would be that the lens is not removable. A few years later, I decided to make the big jump to a professional-grade unit with interchangeable lenses.
