This is a different take on the (undocumented) immigration story. I think it's inclusive to both conservatives and liberals, rather than bashing each other. Feels very logical and philosophical at the same time.
From the author: This is a piece that’s posted to my FWD.us account as my back-story, but since it evolved more into an essay, I thought it…

Brands who avoid science fiction, and depicting near-future tech that seem more like far-future fantasies, while telling a good brand story usually survive better. It's practical and inspiring.

Dataset.io is a census visualization project by MIT data viz guru Cesar Hidalgo. I linked to the Long Beach / LA metro area but this site has data and census stats for every part of the country
The Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA Metro Area is the 2nd largest in the nation with a combined population of 13.3M. The largest counties by population are Los Angeles County, CA and Orange County, CA. The largest places in Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA Metro Area by population are Los Angeles, CA; Long Beach, CA; and Anaheim, CA.

One of my favorite poets to grace the TED stage

CLINT SMITH. 

Timing is everything
As kids, we all get advice from parents and teachers that seems strange, even confusing. This was crystallized one night for a young Clint Smith, who was playing with water guns in a dark parking lot with his white friends. In a heartfelt piece, the poet paints the scene of his father's furious and fearful response.

What's good with creating technology that influences the 99% if it all still comes down to the 1% of the Supreme Court Justices with the final decision?
The 4-4 tie dealt a sharp blow to an ambitious program that the president had hoped would become one of his central legacies.

As a big believer of quantum theory, where anything and everything is possible, I believe the Present time is indeed an illusion. Julian Barbour states that yes, everyone one of us is real, with real experiences. Although, there have been many debates time and time again (pun intended), that yes—time is succession of co-existing things. 
Since we can't directly access the past or the future, the present seems to be all we've got. Yet Derrida denied the existence of the present.

Lately I haven't been inspired. Wait, I take that back. I, get inspired. Everyday. But it's like those little arousals that spike only a few hertz in my badly cluttered attention-span. Until today. The megahertz bomb dropped.

You know, there are some things that can't be explained—only felt. And this one was a thumper. It made me stand up to recognize what ability looks like in pure form. What intuition looks like. What the groove looks and feels like.

I've met my share of talents, and this one by far, is on my bucket list.
