I suspect every person who wins a battle feels vindicated. I am grateful our nation has room for people of all faiths, cultures, and lifestyles. I wish this would mean Christians would evaluate their tactics and action in the light of scripture and the teachings of JESUS. But, for some reason they have forgotten GOD is in control. GOD is the one who established the people in authority, including the SCOTUS, for HIS purposes. It is time for Christians to figure out HIS purpose is to chastise them for their rejection of HIS plans and HIS precepts.

I have tried for years to show my Christian family how their actions are bringing this to pass. For over 13 years I have showed them, from the scriptures, that JESUS never intended them to rule over and control the actions of those who do not agree with them. Now, they not only fight against the sinners, but they fight against the Christians who believe differently as well.

Before 1975, the movies released between May and August were typically B-movies. But “Jaws” changed everything. yhoo.it/1IVlfJ8
June 20 is the fortieth anniversary of our introduction to a great white shark with an axe to grind in Steven Spielberg’s “Jaws.” Before 1975, the movies released between May and August were typically B-movies. But after weeks of sold-out crowds and $260 million in U.S. ticket sales, “Jaws” proved that summertime could mean big business at the box office.

Feel like you can't keep up with technology these days? If you keep hearing everyone talk about "the cloud" and feel like your understanding is a bit... cloudy, here's what you'll want to know. yhoo.it/1T8ao3k

I have been involved in some very high level research over the years starting out with electrical engineering and ending up with plasma physics and quantum physics. My resume doesn't show most of my education because most of what I learned wasn't in the classroom yet. My point? One may think that I like the trend of technology. The truth.... it makes me happy I am semi-retired and my favorite thing to do is play guitar with my various musical friends and bands. I am sick that the level of of one's immersion into the technology of the day, which is so fleeting in many cases defines the person. That is why I love to see a picture of you with a dog. Enjoying the best of life's interactions; with something alive not a cold "cloud." After all, clouds are good for making rain and ruining many weekends. I guess I have regressed but I am happy with it.

Christy story is similar to our story my mother had lung cancer and was given 3 months until her transition and yes she lived 3 months. I am a only child as a lady with 3 children and a husband it is very hard everyday because my mother and I were like you and your daughter we traveled the world. One month before she transition we too were on a cruise ship Sept 21,2015. Mother was sick but she did it all for us. She would not let me cancel that trip. Oct 31, 2015 I was holding her hand at home with soft christian music playing telling her how awesome she was as a mother, my best friend and she could rest because now I got it. I love her daily and the pain will always be in my heart. Apart of me left when she went home to Glory. I say to you both enjoy every second and that will stay with your daughter and give her peace that surpasses all understanding long after. Enjoy your moments alone.
My prayers and blessing to you both. Mrs. B

Napster co-founder Sean Parker believes the same innovation and tenacity that are behind the greatest technological breakthroughs can and should be used to find cures for some of the biggest global health epidemics -- and pledged $24 million to establish the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy Research.
At just 35, Sean Parker has been public enemy No. 1 to the music industry and one of the first “friends” of Facebook, and he’s made billions along the way. In 1999, he co-founded Napster, a music-sharing site that attracted millions of users — and enough lawsuits from record labels to shut it down. Five years later, after seeing a site called “The Facebook” on the computer of his roommate’s girlfriend at Stanford, he met founder Mark Zuckerberg a...

I met up with Sonny Moore (aka Skrillex) at his studio in downtown L.A. for a rare look into the life and career of one of EDM’s biggest stars. yhoo.it/skrillex 
His introduces himself as Sonny Moore, but to his millions of young fans, his name is Skrillex, and it’s one of the biggest names in electronic dance music (EDM). Since he first came on to the scene as an EDM DJ and producer in 2010, Skrillex has collected six Grammys, 19 million Facebook fans, and an estimated $20 million — all while giving away most of his music for free.

A decision is expected by #SCOTUS soon on the fate of a key feature of Obamacare. Here’s what you need to know. http://yhoo.it/1eGjWE2
A decision is expected by the Supreme Court soon on the fate of a key feature of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. If the justices vote in favor of King v. Burwell, it could mean the loss of subsidies for millions of Americans, making their health insurance no longer affordable.
