    Uncommonly Impressive (Ep. 3)

    Uncommonly Impressive (Ep. 3)

    My how the trends change. We live in a world where popular things seem to die off it just a couple of years anymore. I mean, nobody has Myspace anymore, Facebook is pretty much only used for political memes and yard sales, and YouTube is filled with tutorials on semi popular video games.

    From a Mere Trading Company to Ruling Over Large Parts of India?

    From a Mere Trading Company to Ruling Over Large Parts of India?

    Company executives have a great responsibility in controlling it. This is not as easy as managing a small business. This event is for a company that humbly began through the ranks to control not just a state, but nations as well. It was simply beghasting!. The Honorary British East India Company was a young partner in the trading network of the 18th century Persianate centered North India Empire. At first it was a private enterprise, and gradually it became involved in the politics of intensity on the subcontinent. The company started at a store in Mayfair London with a businessman named Sanjiv.

    Why Are You Ranking: Best Defunct Websites That Paid for Content Listed from Cash Poor to Internet Wealthy

    Why Are You Ranking: Best Defunct Websites That Paid for Content Listed from Cash Poor to Internet Wealthy

    For over a decade now, the web has revolutionized lives for the good of individuals. Now, you can order pizza, a ride, transfer money, conduct video conferences with friends, and much more, all with a few swipes of a finger on a smartphone or other device. But what has not been spoken of or written about as much are the sites that paid for content. User or contributor or partner generated content has been the little secret that no one discusses about the internet. It is a conundrum wrapped in a riddled sprinkled with mystery to most folks. While gaming apps reap in billions of dollars for their makers, the sites that pay (or paid) for material have been relegated to the corner of the digital space. Names that when you speak of them to the layperson, usually draw faces of confusion or even wonder. Few news outlets have spoken of these now deceased sites and the people who possessed the opportunity to spread the message of the goodness of these sites didn’t have too much time as they changed business models, saw absorption into other companies, or found themselves rendered obsolete altogether. But the men and women who saw something curious in the universe said: this internet thing is a huge bank for the yacht-sized companies that have docked here. Why can’t people with a passion for writing or video be compensated for their efforts in these speedboats? Behemoths like YouTube have taken the model to greater heights but few other sites can boast their numbers. Salutes to these people who saw something of value remain in order. So, if you’ve heard of or never heard of the following sites on this list you can still grab your RevTags and SpyMac “Leapfrog” redesign for Why Are You Ranking: Best Defunct Websites That Paid for Content Listed from Cash Poor to Internet Wealthy.

    What I Learned Reporting on the Death of Princess Diana

    What I Learned Reporting on the Death of Princess Diana

    I was 20 years old when I landed my first job in professional radio. I began work as what we called a board operator, the person in charge of making sure that syndicated programming, in this case the Leeza Gibbons Top 40 Countdown on Mix 96.1 FM in Davenport, Iowa, ran according to schedule. This was a time when satellite delivered programming was reserved for talk radio and before automation software began making entry level positions in radio obsolete.

    Standardized Testing

    Standardized Testing

    "I Just Sued The School System" in many ways has emphasized the overall core issue in the U.S. Education System. The one size fits all, cookie cutter issue. It has also explained a major issue within standardized testing.

    The Price of Education and Teaching: Part I

    The Price of Education and Teaching: Part I

    When I was growing up, I never even imagined finishing elementary school; this was especially true due to our family's severe poverty, so I was lucky I survived adolescence and graduated from elementary school but by barely making the grades; I'd no idea what would happen next, but that's when my mother told me she was going to el norte, and she'd take me with her if I behaved. It was hard to believe she'd chosen me out of nine children. She then told me she didn't want to leave me behind because I'd get in trouble; so I was determined to behave and not talk back to her so she wouldn't change her mind; that was one of the most difficult things for me to do.

    Break the Poverty Curse Cycle

    Break the Poverty Curse Cycle

    Are you comfortable with your current circumstances? I asked this of one individual who I shall not name, as the smell of urine and smoke filled my lungs. The individual did not respond. I suppose they had a hard time responding with four kids and police sirens screaming in their ears. Personally, I do not judge individuals for how they live. I have no right to judge anyone because I do not know the adversities that have hindered them from achieving better circumstances. Besides, it’s not like I’m in a better situation myself. But, what I will do is ask you a couple of questions to make you think about the choices you have made and how you have chosen to co-exist with those choices. If it’s one thing I hate, it is to see someone judging someone else. Especially my people. My black people. You see, my people love to judge each other. Whether it’s the shoes on their feet, the hair, or the person they choose to be intimate with. It’s all a competition to my people. A competition that was started by our oppressor. Instead of judging someone, why don’t you try to help them. Show them how certain patterns can lead to certain outcomes. With this method of communication, I only can hope to give them the tools they need to overcome their adversities.

    No Joke: Feynman & the Common Core

    No Joke: Feynman & the Common Core

    One of the things I have been working on as a point of self-improvement recently is broadening my horizons as far as reading materials are concerned. I've always prided myself on my willingness to read anything. Packing up my books into boxes to move into my new house, I realized that while it may be true that I will read anything, I wasn't making the effort to be as well-rounded as I should. The majority of my shelves are classic or modern fiction. To remedy the situation I recently picked up and Dr. Richard Feynman's memoir Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman.
