And you thought Friday mornings couldn’t get any better!

 

FACEbook face recognition. Still believe Mark Zuckerberg isn’t selling your data? Yeah me, either.

★The YA authors started a digital revolt after the Wall Street Journal blasted the adult content in the genre. I have to say, I agree with the Journal.

★ A return to child slavery. Round of applause to the idiot elected officials in Maine and Missouri!

★ Jon Hamm tell us the real reason why Mad Men almost got canceled. See, (love of) money is the root of all evil!

What your email address says about you. Glad I’m Sarah@SarahRamsingh.com.

★ Don’t kill the messenger! If anything Satoshi Kanazawa’s research Why Black Women Are Unattractive, shows how racism falls harder on African American women.

Gilbert Arenas should be banned from Twitter and dating.

★ Truth be told, I’ve never met a pushy atheist.

★ iPredict Facebook will be far more evil than Google.

★ Patrice O’Neal’s Elephant in the Room comedy will make you laugh until you cry. Currently streaming on Netflix.

 

★ If more people like Michael Ruppert were running the country, the world would be a better place. The man should be in government. Currently streaming on (you guessed it) Netflix.


 

★ A Flow of Water predicts the next great war over a dying resource. Currently streaming on my favorite place, Netflix.

 

★ Ann Coulter is just is not likable, neither is Gilbert Arenas… you see where I’m going with this?

15 Things I Know For Sure

June 10th, 2011 9:59 am | Posted by Sarah in 1,001 Imperfect Life Lessons - (2 Comments)

See Lesson 15
 
 

To Thy Own Self Be True. Shakespeare said it best. When you can wake up every morning, look yourself in the mirror and be proud, it makes life effortless.

People are the same, no matter where you go. The same cliques exist from Istanbul to Iowa.

Karma and your grace define who you are, cyclically. Everything you put out in this world comes back to you, ten fold.

Fake it, until you make it. The title says it all.

Enjoy being single. Unfortunately, most learn this lesson after a divorce. Save yourself the trouble and learn it at 16.

Get a pet. A turtle, fish, or a fluffy kitten. Whatever you choose, get one. It’s unconditional love at it’s best.

Learn to cook. Not because it will impress a future mate or garner you more friends (which it will); do it because it’s a basic survival skill. Everyday, you have to eat and eating out everyday is expensive! An omelette at a decent diner will run you around $7 with tax and tip, a dozen eggs cost $2.50 and that’s a week’s worth of breakfast! Beyond money savings, the best way to control calories is to cook at home. Win-win!

Cling to true friends. Weed out those that aren’t and make them acquaintances. There’s no need to waste your time around people who don’t contribute equally to your life. It’s a hard lesson, because people change similar to seasons. Once you’ve mastered this, your quality of life improves drastically.

Be frugal and save your money. Learn to eat what’s on sale, buy winter clothes in the summer, shop at double coupon groceries. Take the money you save and place it in a high yielding savings account. Never spend more than $20 a month on a credit card, that way you can afford to pay it off. There’s no shame in being savvy.

Learn to invest. Read investment books (Rich Dad, Poor Dad, by Robert Kiyosaki; Real Money by Jim Cramer) and get an understanding on how money really works. Learn the principals of investing. Understand what a ETF, mutual fund, and stock is. Choose your own investment tools by opening an account at TD Ameritrade. Before you ever get a stock broker, you need to understand what a broker does. This way you can identify a bad one (which there are an over abundance of).

Buy health insurance. Especially if you are self employed. PPOs are better than HMOs, but much more expensive when they sell individual plans. If you can afford it, great, if not, get an HMO. They key is to finding a doctor you trust and feel is competent. Get a plan that includes dental insurance. Your annual payout limit for health care should be at least 1 million dollars, dental $2,500. For women, get a maternity rider even if you aren’t considering kids. Number of unplanned pregnancies: 74%.

Get a hobby. Nothing work related. Bowling, painting, knitting, photography, there are so many! Find something that brings you complete joy! Forget about the potential to profit off of it in the beginning. Once you realize it’s a hobby you want to stick with, then consider monetizing it! Do what you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life!

Get a good office chair, camera, or computer. Buy an item directly beneficial to work or a hobby. Try to stay away from a PS3 unless you’re an engineer. For writers a good laptop or office chair is a must. Artist needs drawing instruments or tablets. Buy this item after you have stuck with a hobby for at least 3 months.

Your body is a temple. Eat unprocessed food! This means anything in the produce aisle. Cut back on the salt and sugar and learn to drink water. Swap out dairy milk for soy or coconut milk. Limit junk and fried foods to the holidays.

Laugh everyday. This is a must. Watch a funny movie or read a book from your favorite comedian. Take silly cat pictures.

And you thought Friday mornings couldn’t get any better!

 

iSheep Ready for the iCloud?

★ PBS’ Frontline documentary on Wikileaks. Love him or hate him, Julian Assange is the internet’s phenomenon.

Steve-O should be running the USDA food pyramid.

★ Someone explain karma to this man. If this doesn’t make you blood boil, nothing will.

★Interesting article on gay vs African American athletes.

★ Call me crazy, but I’m dying to party with Estella Warren.

Michael Loucks becomes a Sith Lord.

★ In defense of Paris Hilton- can’t believe I just typed those words. The View becomes a case of the old pots calling the young kettle black.

 

★With a name like Weiner it was bound to happen.

★ If you have HBO, you need to be watching Too Big to Fail. The rest of us will be reading the book and waiting for the dvd.

 

★ Bridesmaids is a must see, The Hangover 2, not so much!


 

★ One word that described LinkedIn IPO: bubble!

 

★ Waste Land is one of the greatest documentaries ever made! To quote my grandfather, “You haven’t seen poverty until you leave the United States.” Currently streaming on Netflix.

 

★ My future parenting style, courtesy of At&t. If only their network was as good as this commercial!

 

★ Watch Expedition Impossible if only to hear, “We’re in the Sahara, yo!”

 

★ ABC finally bring’s back Jaime Oliver’s Food Revolution. After pulling it off the air for a month in midseason, siting low viewership. Catering to food advertisers or bad ratings? Guess they don’t want us to know about feathers in ice cream sundaes.

A Kia parody for bonus points.

 

The nerdy media center pc becomes main stream.

 

 

★ The best part of CNBC was Mark Haines (1946-2011). They don’t make ‘em like that anymore!

 

★ Scotty Pippen ignits a Twitter uprising. Somewhere, Michael Jordan is playing with his puppet strings.

 

Boston Celtics Chicago Bulls Miami Heat win the Eastern Conference Championship! Can’t wait to watch them play Kobe and Company the Mavericks.

Best song of 2010, hands down, but it will be around for a while! Fun and addictive, with a sick beat. My only dislike: who the heck takes a 10 inch iPad out clubbing?!? You gotta love product placements! Enough said.
