          Clever and practical invention   :)

Tomáš Moravec hacks a wooden pallet to glide down tram tracks in the city of Bratislava, Slovakia, Czech artist Tomáš Moravec has fixed wheels to a standartized europallet, fitting it between existing tram lines and taking it for a spin down the street. The wooden platform — a basic feature of any warehouse, has been reinterpreted as a functioning vehicle, giving a totally new purpose to the shipping unit.
Moravec describes that ‘the new transport vehicle brings change into the spatial perspective of a passenger in motion and generally changes the life of the city, through which the pallet can run, guided by a map of the city lines.’

Cure Content Blindness by Being Memorable

What is content blindness? It is the inability to consume the vast amount of content that is being produced daily on all the social platform streams. In order for your brand to stand out from the crowd and build an audience of loyal customers your content needs to be; optimized, persistent, helpful, authentic, relevant, visual, consistent, tell a story and reflect human experience. There is a fine balance between creativity and strategy. This video is an exceptional insight into content marketing and authorship.

The biggest star in the Universe would take us 1000 years to fly around. The GIF below and the short video will blow your mind.

What is the biggest known star in the Universe? 

Astronomers have identified that one in VY Canis Majoris (VY CMa), a hypergiant star located in the constellation Canis Major, which with a diameter equal to 2600 sunlight (solar radius 1 = 7 x 10 ^ 8 m) is currently the biggest known star and one of the brightest.

 It is located about 5000 light-years from Earth, and, unlike many others that are in binary or multiple systems, VY CMa is a single star instead. 
If we imagined being on an airplane and fly over the star, with a top speed of 900 km / h, we would expend more than 1000 years to return to the starting point.

In the animated gif below, you can see  VY Canis Majoris  compared to Earth.
In order of appearance: Earth, Sun, Sirius, Betelgeuse, VY Canis Majoris. 
VY Canis Majoris is so large, that if it were to replace our own sun the star itself would extend outwards past the orbit of Jupiter.

Have a Safe and Happy Independence Day Everyone!
 
Happy Independence Day USA!

Fourth of July Night

The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky
A white sky bomb fizzed on a black line.
A rocket hissed it's red signature into the west.
Now a shower of Chinese fire alphabets,
A cry of flower pots broken in flames,
A long curve to a purple spray, three violet balloons---
Drips of seaweed tangled in gold, shimmering symbols of mixed numbers,
Tremulous arrangements of cream gold folds of a bride's wedding gown---
A few sky bombs spoke their pieces, then velvet dark.
The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky. 

- Carl Sandburg

Excellent Marketing through a popular social platform as well as a harsh but true reality type message. #media
 
Using Vine to Send a Message

The videos are not over dramatic but the sobering facts that are enough to create a memorable and chilling film. Each vine portrays a model representing a different demographic group (the carefree youth, the invincible old timer and the older smoker resigned to their fate) audibly dragging on a cigarette.

Each vine closes with the line, “Before this video starts again, another smoker will die.” Hard-hitting and straight to the point.

This campaign is a great example of how Vine can change initial conceptions within a matter of seconds. At first glance, the campaign’s main image, of a young, attractive woman exhaling smoke from her red-painted lips, might come across as glamorizing smoking. However, with the nature of Vine, as the videos are played over and over, the effect changes.

Think about your campaigns, what wrong conception of your brand do your users have? Something you want to challenge or change? Maybe you want to challenge the idea that your brand is only for men or perhaps you want to dispel and negative outlook on your brand.

20 Signs you are succeeding in life even if you don't feel you are.

1. Your relationships are less dramatic than they used to be.
Drama is not maturity. As we age, we should develop maturity. So maybe your relationships were drama-filled in your past, but if you have moved beyond that, then you are successful.
2. You are not afraid to ask for help and support any more.
Asking for help does not equal weakness. In fact, it is a strength. No person has ever succeeded in isolation. It takes teamwork to accomplish goals. Asking or help is a sign that you have grown as a person.
3. You have raised your standards.
You don’t tolerate bad behavior any more – from other people, or even yourself. You hold people accountable for their actions. You don’t spend time with the “energy vampires” in your life anymore.
4. You let go of things that don’t make you feel good.
No, this is not narcissistic even though it might seem like it. Self-love is success. Love yourself enough to say ‘no’ to anything that doesn’t make you happy, doesn’t serve your purpose, or drags you down.
5. You have moments where you appreciate who you see in the mirror.
Ideally, you should appreciate who you see in the mirror at every moment. But even if that doesn’t happen, if you do it more than you used to, then that is success. Love yourself. You are awesome.
6. You have learned that setbacks and failure are part of self-growth.
Not everyone can have success 100% of the time. That’s just not realistic. Life is about victories and losses. So look at your setbacks as stepping stones to something better. In reality, there really is no such thing as as setback. It’s all just part of a wondrous journey.
7. You have a support system that includes people who would do anything for you.
If you have figured out the people who “have your back” and recognized the ones who only pretend that they do, then you have succeeded. This is a painful realization, but once you learn to see the signs of betrayal, you can stay away from those people.
8. You don’t complain much.
Because you know there really is nothing to complain about. Unless you really have gone through some horrific life experience and had unimaginable losses, most of what we all experience on a day-to-day basis is just mundane. And successful people know that. And they live in a space of gratitude.
9. You can celebrate others’ successes.
Just because other people succeed, that doesn’t make you a failure. Applaud the people who rise to the top. The more positive energy you give to other people’s victories, the more you will create your own.
10. You have passions that you pursue.
You are not stagnant. You know you have something wonderful to contribute to the world. You have unique talents and gifts. Not only do you know that, you pursue it.
11. You have things to look forward to.
If you don’t have exciting things going on in your life that you are eagerly anticipating, then you are slowly dying inside. Successful people create goals that they are passionate about pursuing. They let this excitement drive their life.
12. You have goals that have come true.
Even though “failures” are a part of life, you have stuck to your goals and dreams long enough to make them come to fruition. You have  some tastes of victory. It fuels you.
13. You have empathy for others.
A person without empathy is dead inside. Empathy equals spreading love and positive energy into the world. Successful people know this. They love others as if they are family.
14. You love deeply and open yourself up to be loved by others.
Love is risky, and sometimes scary for people. It’s the one thing we all strive for, but it’s also intimately tied to the one thing we fear the most – rejection. If you open your heart enough to love and be loved, then you are successful.
15. You refuse to be be a victim.
You know that life doesn’t always happen to you. Many times, you are a co-creator of your life experiences. Successful people know this and refuse to be kept down by life experiences. The rise up and conquer anyway.
16. You don’t care what other people think.
You know you can’t please everyone. You know that the standards with which society judges people is many times unrealistic. So you just keep true to yourself and love the person you are.
17. You always look on the bright side.
Life can be full of disappointments – if you choose to see them that way. Otherwise, they are learning opportunities. No negative experience is ever wasted as long as you learn from it.
18. You accept what you can’t change.
Let’s face it – there many things you can’t change in life. All you can change is how you view what happens. If you can change your negative perspective on situations to a positive one, then you are successful.
19. You change what you can.
And let’s face it again – there are many things you can change in life. Successful people don’t sit around accepting the negatives that are changeable. They get out there and do something about it!!
20. You are happy.
To me, this is the ultimate definition of success. It doesn’t matter what the balance is in your bank account, how big your house is,  or how many fancy vacations you take. If you are happy, then you are succeeding in life.
Even if you don’t see yourself in many of these 20 things, don’t fret. It’s okay. Be happy that you see yourself in just a few. In time, the rest will come. You just need to keep moving onward and upward.

This is how the FB newsfeed appears these days. Pretty accurate and quite different than when I started in 2006. Strange how many of the popular platforms are starting to look and act and behave the same .
 
Funny because it’s true.
this is what Facebook looks like nowadays.
