These guys have some amazing talent.  I was watching MSNBC just now hearing about how certain politicians are trying to distance themselves from their hate mongering donors and I thought some "run-for-the-hills" banjo music was in order.  Instead, I happened upon this group of super talented guys.  Reminds me of when I discovered Clutch.

This has the potential of being quite good... So many neat references and cool dialog opportunities.

I think that it's very significant that a young Caucasian woman has taken the time to have the first hand experiences that enable her to so accurately assess one of the side effects of institutionalized racism in America.
In the United States, two institutions guide teenagers on the journey to adulthood: college and prison. Sociologist Alice Goffman spent six years in a troubled Philadelphia neighborhood and saw first-hand how teenagers of African-American and Latino backgrounds are funneled down the path to prison — sometimes starting with relatively minor infractions. In an impassioned talk she asks, “Why are we offering only handcuffs and jail time?”

I think it's interesting, the amount of peace and healing conversations that are happening across all racial, social, and economic lines in face of such a horrible tragedy.  Very different from the riots and violence resulting from the recent police shootings.  Will the roots of peace and progress grow from the sacrificial blood of innocents?

This sums up how I feel about programming and with my new mechanical keyboard it really makes me remember starting out on my old IBM PC.  This video really sums up my love for programming.

Esther Perel: Rethinking infidelity ... a talk for anyone who has ever loved #TED : http://on.ted.com/f0whk
Infidelity is the ultimate betrayal. But does it have to be? Relationship therapist Esther Perel examines why people cheat, and unpacks why affairs are so traumatic: because they threaten our emotional security. In infidelity, she sees something unexpected — an expression of longing and loss. A must-watch for anyone who has ever cheated or been cheated on, or who simply wants a new framework for understanding relationships.

Introduction
I'm in the process of transformation; metamorphosis in all areas of my life.  By trade and hobby I am a creator, an "imagineeer" and I take great pleasure in realizing my thoughts and dreams and fantasies into the physical world.  The human mind is amazing in its ability to realize dreams.

I have a physical and emotional vision of myself that has existed only in my mind that I am currently working on making a reality - my biggest and most challenging project yet.

Ron was exceedingly professional and my family felt exceedingly comfortable working with him and this company. Ron said that Jose was one of the best technicians and he personally vouched for his skill. We prepped the house according to the documents we were given. The day of our bed bug service we got a call from the main office telling us that they had double booked accidentally and that Jose would be there as soon as possible. That was all fine, I work from home as a computer programmer. Our service was scheduled for Monday and over that weekend the National Bank of Australia had a bug that left all online merchants unable to process sales. This is significant to me as I work for a global eCommerce company and had been up all night trying to reroute processing through our European affiliates and bypass the Australian infrastructure. I guess Jose assumed that I was playing a video game as he poked his condescending head over my stair rail and says "hey bud, you gonna help". Jose, not able to see my screen didn't realize I was on a video conference call and to be honest I didn't know what he was talking about. I told him I was working and he mumbled some comment about his job or whatever. First of all, he had help from my dad and my mom who just learned they had to empty their drawers. Nevertheless, he had NO RIGHT to interrupt my business call. TOTALLY UNPROFESSIONAL. Then Jose goes on to say something to my mother about how sometimes he'd just turn around if the area wasn't prepped. I didn't hear that but if I had, I'd have thrown him out of my house. My mom is in her late 60's and didn't need to be threatened that he'd walk out because she didn't know to empty her drawers. And while Jose said he was "helping us out" (sorry, I thought we were PAYING for service not receiving it free), I think he was completely unprofessional. When you come to do a service, do it. Don't start speaking down to the residents. And it clearly states any extra work would come at a fee - fine - charge the fee, but don't THINK you can disrespect my aging parents or me in my own home. We have a 10 days review coming up of the work, DO NOT send Jose. He acted like a complete, condescending ass IMO.

Where do I begin? Great food, horrid service. We went to Cedro's for Mother's Day Brunch. The dining room is very attractive and modern looking. We ordered our food and the waitress confirmed the adjustments we'd made to the orders (my grandmother is 92 and only wanted 2 eggs instead of 3 for example). The first issue came with the entree delivery. My French Toast was brought out and we waited for the other entrees but they never came. We asked the waitress how much longer it would be and she sort of smiled and nodded (English was not her first language). After 15 minutes my mother suggested I start eating my food before it got cold and nasty. Finally my father and mother's food came out, but still nothing for my 92 year old grandmother. She had the most basic meal of us all - 2 scrambled eggs, sausage and toast. I feel like hers should have come out with mine or at least with my parents' food, yet nothing. We couldn't find the waitress so I stopped one of the hostesses and she immediately came back with eggs and sausage. Sadly, the eggs were sunny side over and not scrambled and my grandmother hates runny eggs. We tell our waitress about the error and a manager comes out shortly with scrambled eggs, but still no toast. At this point she's upset and doesn't want anything to eat and I couldn't blame her. The oldest person at the table had to sit and watch people eat even though she ordered the easiest thing to prepare; it basically ruined our mother's day brunch. As I said in the first sentence, everything tastes GREAT! There is something going on with the communication between the waitstaff and the kitchen that ruins the dining experience at this place. I can't suggest that anyone go there given what happened to us even though the chef is obviously good.
