Corporate business is serious because it provides the stuff from which jobs come from to put food on the table, feed your family, keep your marriage, and to some extent, it helps keep your sanity glued.

But don’t ever become a corporate person; don’t lose your sense of self-identity; don’t ever sell your soul to a company only for the sake of feeling financially secure: wake up, there’s no such thing!

If it’s about smart meters today, what will it be tomorrow?  The issue here is not so much about smart meters, although they can be a danger and an inconvenience I know, but it’s about taking away peoples’ personal choice, a choice that should be acknowledged and respected by the government and not have it swept away as if it didn’t matter.  When governments deny or overlook public concerns one too many times, that’s a cue for our leaders to have a reason to pause and think more carefully about what it does and how it does it, to the public at large.  This is how civil unrest begins and rev

Whenever you deal with people, the dynamics are as interesting and fun as they are challenging and hurtful.  My father once told me, and by the way, this advice came from a man who was married to my mother for 63 years, that one of the secrets to having a long and happy marriage was to choose someone who naturally coincides with the way you are on the part of both the woman and the man.  This is not an easy thing to do in your life, but it worked well for him.  Is there something viable in that kind of advice?  Are the individual natures of how we are so important as to determine whether co

Yes, I know we live in a time of fast and fat foods for sale, that medical authorities and the media are telling us the dangers of overeating on the one hand but also providing us with spectacular access to volumes of fattening foods on the other, that medicines and diets don’t always do what they promise, and that doctors with their magic scalpels and hundreds of tummy-tucks cannot surgically alter the rule that mandates the nature of the human body: too much eating without much activity leads to being overweight.  Modern medicine has not as yet realized that you cannot have your cake (eat

Who’s getting the better bargain in this democracy of ours, the power brokers or the common folks like you and me?  Well let’s see.  On the one hand, it’s sad to know that you go to bed at night thinking that you sleep under the blanket of privileges a democracy promises, and rest under the constitutional protection that you think a bill of rights can give you.  Then you wake up the next morning to realize that much of what you once thought was true now turns out to be a compromised political illusion that remains ill-defined and lingers uncertain for many of us that once depended on those

Sports used to involve the simple love of the game; today, it’s a high stakes, high-stressed business that consumes every morsel of financial interest that stands in the way of club owners and financiers that bankroll them into successful seasons year after year.  But in a way, it’s really a question of values: what do you value?  A future, I’m sure, but what kind?  Will it be a kind to be short-lived, racked with injury, arthritis, and mental lapses of inadequacies that carry you with a lifetime pension, or will it be the turtle in the race with the hare, which won that race with fulfillme

It was only the other day when President Obama gave a speech on the current state of the union, so I thought I’d make a comment or two on the current state of democracy and as it turned out, it ended up becoming a whole entire show!  How ‘bout that?

YOU’VE GOT TO CATCH THIS SHOW! Have you ever wondered what you look like in the mirror before you go out for an evening’s fun, or just going to work? Take a good and careful look at yourself, because it can cost you your job. Yep, that’s what I said. This is what happened to Melissa Nelson, a dental assistant who after nearly 11 years of service got fired by her boss, Dr. James Knight, for looking too attractive and irresistible, and wearing clothes that were too tight!

There are 8 gifts of Christmas that we have, or have had at some point, but we’ve misused them terribly, to the point where we have conscientiously chosen to let them go to pursue other fictitious aspirations. Why? Christmas is just one of those funny holidays that has a rather unusual effect on people, because there are so many different things to say and share about it, and because it’s also one of the few days left in the year that really allow us to look back and reflect on our families, our friends, and our humanity toward one another.

From thinking, to creating an idea, to mass-producing dependence, and to selling a public obsession; the evolution of technology has found its way into our lives in a way never imagined. People have come to a point where they don’t make a move without first consulting their personal smart devices. Our technology is also getting to where we can no longer think for ourselves. Artificial intelligence is waiting for us to waiver our right to make decisions.
