I recently attended a keynote speech by author and consultant Cecily Sommers. Ms. Sommers is a corporate futurist and author of the book, “Think Like a Futurist: Know What Changes, What Doesn't, and What's Next”. Two points in particular caught my interest during her talk: the corporations for which she develops scenarios about possible futures for the business environments in which they operate - as well as potential working business models - mo...

An intimate conversation in an intimate setting communicates more powerfully in the full version. My discussion on The Art of Reinvention at Capsule​https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVGPDBdh9-Q&feature=youtu.be

What your upstairs neighbors are really doing "Your ceiling is my canvas." Hilarious!

As kale goes, so go the dietary habits of Americans (McDonald's considering it on their menu!). Looking ahead that means more healthy eating, sustainable practices. Yay! http://ht.ly/Kvo7B
In the future, fat and bacteria are good, soil is smarter, and healthy convenience is king.

The future of multi-tasking is secure with this cruise-control device for humans: remote control sensors tell you where to step so you can keep looking at your phone as you walk. Can't help but feel sad about this one :(  http://ht.ly/LHOoL

Lighting fixtures that open and close with variation in light, just as flowers do. #PurePoetry

NO-kay, Oklahoma!
Marriage is fundamentally a legal contract that confers property, rights and, yes, taxes. Untangling those contracts is why divorce is so much work (and why it's not done with clergy, btw). A-theistic is what government needs to be, what ours was designed to be from the beginning: keep government out of private affairs and beliefs (aka "freedom," you stinking nincompoops!)

This is really just a work-around to block gay marriage, and on (Christian) clergy to maintain a (Christian) faith-based prohibition. The logic is just so preposterous, it's embarrassing. The premise is offensive and, more importantly, it's immoral.

Oklahoma sure is making a bad name for itself these days. Not OK.

It's been a good month for completely absurd law changes. Last week, Ireland quite suddenly legalised ecstasy and ketamine, and this week Oklahoma has seen fit to restrict marriage to people of faith.
