Apple drops some tunes.

Dr. Dre, the first billionaire in hip hop?
Apparently a deal was signed between Beats ® and Apple ®. I am not sure of the details regarding the deal, however, it sounds like it made Dre a billionaire.
Dre’s celebration video might not be to Apple’s liking however.
Apple, this is what happens when you try to excel in the “cool” market. Get used to it.
Steve Job’s might be “poppin’ bottles,” upstairs right now.
Meanwhile, downstairs [main level – not bottom floor], Apple sounds upset.
I could imagine Bill Gates doing something similar with Microsoft ®. However, I doubt its aim would ever be to cater to “coolness.” They have the XBOX ® taking care of that arena.

Microsoft®…. I’m thinking Bose ® headphones. You all need to stay on par with competition, while maintaining professionalism.

Priorities

Movement towards legalization of "illicit" products, such as Marijuana, is occurring at a very fast rate. As an American, I'm concerned about the well-being of my fellow nationals. Alcoholism and Smoking already pose a deleterious risk factors for humans all over the world. American's, however, have a huge issue with obesity. Legalizing natural resources that induce both a physiologic & metabolic mechanism known as the "munchies," might not be the best course of action. The nation's primary concern should be placing surgeon general warnings on Debbie Snacks.

It is what it is.

I just got back from a wedding. Weddings can be annoying since you probably will not know half of the individuals there. However, this wedding was decent. The set up and location was very nice.

Whenever I go to weddings, I like to stand/sit alone and see what kind of crowd I attract. I got the opportunity to sit next to 4 kids between ages 8-10 and 3 new friends who are 8 years younger than me.

It was amazing.

Top 2 Public Icons


Why is Bill Clinton one of my favorite presidents? Is it because he actually improved our economy or kept military expenses to a minimum? You would think so, however, no, those are not my top 10 reasons for keeping Bill Clinton in my list of favorite top 2 public figures. All it took was a few wonderfully crafted and meaningful sentences:

"Politics gives guys so much power that they tend to behave badly around women. And I hope I never get into that." ~President Clinton addressing a female as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford.

"When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn't like it. I didn't inhale and never tried it again." ~President Clinton

"What's a man got to do to get in the top fifty?" ~Mr. Clinton’s reaction to a poll journalists formulated, ranking Monica’s scandal as the 53rd most significant story during the past 100 years.

"It depends on how you define alone…" ~ President Clinton, during his testimony in 1998 regarding the Lewinsky scandal.

“"There were a lot of times when we were alone, but I never really thought we were." ~ also Mr. Clinton, during his grand jury testimony

"It depends on what the meaning of the words 'is' is." ~Mr. Clinton- testimony

"You know, if I were a single man, I might ask that mummy out. That's a good-looking mummy" ~ President Clinton while eyeing "Juanita," a recent archeological finding of an Incan mummy showcased at the National Geographic Museum

As you can see from the above quotes, that we were blessed to have a true leader for 8 years prior to our economic crash. Not only did he look out for those who desperately needed employment, but also those who simply wanted something to do [ a man of equal opportunity]:
"The economy has produced 6.1 million jobs since I became president, and if Michael Jordan comes back to the Bulls, it will be 6,100,001 jobs."~ President Clinton.

He took care of himself, and taught us as a leader, no matter what kind of position you are in, be prepared for the future [George W. Bush/Obama etc.]: "Well, I don't have much job security." ~Bill Clinton response in 1992 after being asked why he still plays the saxophone.

My number 1 public figure is Shaquille O’Neal:

It’s not just the above video, but more in regards to how he can be found- re-watching himself & laughing- in a public location [I can’t disclose] in Atlanta immediately after filming his TNT show.

glade ®: Brisa Hawaiana ®

I bought some Hawaiian breeze ® flavored glade ®. It wasn’t anything like Hawaii. I’ve never been to Hawaii, but it didn't remind me of that page in my September issue of Travel Magazine


So just imagine walking down this aisle full of flowery flavors, and all of sudden you have a scent resembling a state’s breeze added to the US in 1959.


 I got concerned for two reasons:

1. Glade® at the time was marketing “new soft mist.” However capturing Hawaii’s breeze completely replaced the intent of ROA leverage from dollars invested in R&D which went into producing this “new soft mist” product. I’ve never been in contact with hard mist, so I’m assuming the research & development of that product must have not cost more than the pencil of a glade ® marketer. 

2. My next point of concern….I was wondering what glade had to negotiate with the United States to give up  ®  Hawaii's Breeze? 

Does S.C Johnson & Son own the United States?

Gush. Just J-E-L-L-O

“I don’t want to be just one thing. I want to be brave, and honest, and intelligent, and kind.” Yes this is taken directly from Theo James, known as “Four” in the movie Divergent. He utters these sweet words to Shailene Woodley, also known as “Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior”. If you watch the preview this is the moment where he exposes his back tattoo without Tris asking him to. The tattoo is a mess and unfocused, very much like the opening quote of this blog. At the bottom of the tattoo is a tree symbol; a symbol very similar to the Timberland logo. It all clicked. He is known as ‘Four’ because that is the size of his work boots. Holla Holla.


At the end of the movie, he pulls a mission impossible and removes his face mask. It was Ken Jeong the whole time. I’m not Dr. Schulz, but I can safely say the brother was on heels and ‘gellin’
