Ever wished your lame-ass blog could look a little more like a sweet, crisp Material Design app? Well, it’s your lucky day: Google has a new tool that will do most of that work for you.

For those not from the NYC area, this is an interesting historical read.

In a failed renovation project of Wollman Rink in Central Park, the City of New York had spent 6 years and $12 million, and was "back to square one".  The city then gave the contract to Donald Trump.  Trump finished the rink in 3 months and for $1.95 million.

Is Donald Trump a Racist?

"Trump would portray his comments — that Mexicans coming to America are drug-runners and rapists — not as racism....

...his comments were the definition of racism: to negatively characterize an entire ethnic group based on the actions of a few.

First of all, Trump did not say "Mexicans coming into this country", he said illegal immigrants, i.e. people who by definition are committing a crime. Time of course left that word out.

Second, Trump did not characterize an entire ethnic group.  Trump characterized people committing an action - a crime in this case.  He did not say Mexicans, he said Mexicans coming here illegally.

Funny how you can completely mis-represent someone by leaving out a few choice words from their quote.....

At least this incident proves: You can no longer mess with Latinos.

Trump only stated what Americans want to hear and what we want our elected official to act on, they will not. It would be a paradigm shift in how elected officials operate if someone like trump got elected and actually did something that Americans want. Zero is the number that comes to mind when accounting for favorable policy toward America coming out of dc

How not to design a logo

Forget politics, this is one of the worst Presidential campaign logos I've seen...  A red arrow?  Seriously?  Who designed this?

Nexus 6 on Project Fi

I just got my Project Fi Nexus 6 yesterday and first impressions are... it's awesome! I'm using this in Pensacola, and so far the coverage is much better than my previous T-Mobile service. Also, I can now get and receive calls and text messages over wifi from my cinder-block office building without needing a cell signal.

So far I haven't run into any issues or bugs. The Nexus 6 has a much better screen and camera than my Nexus 5. It seems to be slightly faster, and have slightly better battery life.

But, my favorite feature of Project Fi has to be the no-contract, straight-forward billing. I'm on the 3GB plan (paying for the phone monthly too) and my total monthly bill is $66 after taxes and fees. If I use less data, I'll get a refund. I think my effective bill will probably be around $55 / mo -- no contract.  Incredible.

+Francis Delenda of course I already know that, I'm looking at the OVERALL payment, all that means is it doesn't hurt my wallet all at once, doesn't change that it's 500 dollars (until the deal ends)

Tesla home battery announcement

If the installation process really is only an hour or so, you're looking at a total installed and delivered and sales tax cost of under $5,000.  If you sign up for your power company's tiered service, you could possibly save 20% without any expensive solar panels.

So, $5,000 to save 20% on your power bill?  If your power bill is $400, it would take 4 years for the ROI.  Might be worth it to a lot of people...
Elon Musk extols the virtues of battery power in an evening press conference.

The food here is pretty good. The burgers are great, but not the best I've ever had. And, they can get expensive quickly after a few options. The milkshakes are really good. Service was okay, atmosphere okay. We did see a large roach crawling on the ceiling. But, it's a 100+ yr old building in Florida, so it wasn't a huge surprise...

Excellent designers! These guys are fresh and can deliver amazing designs for websites, logos, business cards, ad campaigns, etc. I've had the pleasure of working with them on several projects and everyone there is always extremely knowledgeable, professional, and accommodating. They are all really nice people and a great place to do business with. Highly recommended!

Best Mexican in Pensacola -- maybe on the entire Gulf Coast. The food is always fresh and great quality. Fish tacos are great as well as their enchiladas. The chicken tortilla soup is great as well.

I have been fortunate enough to have Bass & Sandfort accountants on my team, helping me with my accounting and taxes for a while now. These guys know their stuff, and they bend over backwards to make sure your accounting and taxes are correct. I've always had a great experience with them. They are busy, yes, but still make time to meet with me face to face and discuss my business. They are all extremely knowledgeable, professional, and accommodating. I've never gotten an "eye roll" or anything from these guys (even though at times I probably deserved it :)). I highly recommend them to everyone I know.
