*This is definitely not for the weak. But then again, they may want to watch because it could possibly save their lives.
AT&T is going all out in this campaign that advocates why you should not even attempt to text or look at your device while you are at the wheel.
The video gets you all wrapped up in the families going about their daily business. A little boy is riding his bike and in a carefree manner, admiring what is around him in the neighborhood. A little girl playing in her room asks her mother if her little doll “Elizabeth” can come along with them in the car. And a husband who decided to leave work early is en route to his son’s game while on the phone discussing dinner plans with his wife.
There is so much going on, you soon forget its a commercial, and then BAM! Continue reading →
*One of the greatest truths adults should address today may be the fact that they underestimate children. If we just take the time to sit and speak to them, not in childlike gibberish or using a disrespectful tone — but in a way that makes them feel that we “really want to know your thoughts on this” that would go such a long way. But it wouldn’t stop there. We would have to truly listen, because believe it or not, kids know when they are being bulls**ted. So you’d have to let them know that you heard them in your followup. Reiterate some of their points in a way that reaffirms you understand where they are coming from.
Such underrated dialogue could hold some valuable insights to many of the issues that seem to have now become so overwhelmingly complex in America.
Where is all of this coming from?
A CNN video done about a year ago (scroll down), around the time of Eric Garner‘s death, shows a reporter sitting down with a young group of school children to discuss issues in the news at the time: Grand jury’s, the police and unarmed Black men. Continue reading →
*Hey, we gotta give credit where its due. And who says human males are the only species and sex that can be called fine.
Well they lied.
Take Shabani the gorilla. Japanese women are said to be getting to the zoo to see him by any means necessary.
And its not like he doesn’t realize he’s got their attention. Just look at the photos. After a while he just starts posing for them.
Talk about being ready for your close-up.
The recently discovered “sex symbol?” (their words, not mine) has actually been living at the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Japan since 2007. But I guess it was only recently that he began to grow into his looks.
Apparently, he’s feelin’ himself too, at least from the looks of the photos and video below. Continue reading →
*Well damn. Though a multitudinous number of us have been praying for relief from the whole Caitlyn Jenner transition, now we’re being overwhelmed with what has become the new circus in town:
The racial identity issue surrounding one Rachel Dolezal.
At the time of this writing, I have not watched any of the television interviews with Ms. Dolezal.
And quite frankly, I don’t plan to.
I am not here to analyze this woman; or bring up what she did in her past or why she did it.
I am here to address the circus it has become. And disagree with how she is being vilified, as if she were a criminal.
She’s not a criminal. She did nothing that she could be put in jail for, to my understanding.
No doubt many of us were surprised to learn about the switch-a-roo of a Caucasian woman actually passing for African American, Black. After all, if we’re being honest with ourselves, the first question that came to mind was… why would she want to do that? Continue reading →
*We always knew German Shepherds were smart. That’s why police officers use them. But even we were surprised to see exactly how smart this particular dog is. And over the course of two days, 6 million others have discovered it too.
So what could a dog possibly do to get so many human tongues-a-waggin’ you may ask?
How’s this: He uses the bathroom like a human.
He’s known as Baron Vom Herrn – but you can call him Baron. And on Thursday, April 16, footage of the dog was uploaded to Facebook by K-9 Instinct. Its a 26-second clip that shows the dog raising up and holding on to the top of the toilet with his paws on the tank cover for support while he uses the toilet like a man would. Continue reading →
