Beam me up...Scotty!
There's a building in China that looks almost exactly like the USS Enterprise from 'Star Trek.'

"There are those who cannot begin
to reach out, to comprehend...
They need not surmise
their continued need to rationalize...
while their hatred for a fellow soul 
ignorantly fills that empty hole...
that which they call the human heart,
should be quite the ideal place to start..."

Words (from my younger sister) that I just had to share!

Teresa Lee
 San Francisco, CA 

A young child was trying to engage me in conversation yesterday while I was speaking to his mother. He had some valid points, but his mother shushed him and told him to stop talking. He immediately became sad and had a disappointed look on his face. I told him that he could continue to talk and that I would let him talk, but he remained silent out of respect for his mother (which is a good thing, of course). You could tell that this young man was intelligent, considerate, protective and caring of his mother. I made it a point to tell the mom and her son that I thought he was such a good kid after this conversation was over. However, this interaction got me to reflecting on how some parents don't encourage their children to use their minds and voices in an assertive, but respectful manner. 

Many parents raise their children with the notion that as long as their general education, social abilities, physical abilities (health, recreation, sports,etc.) are in order that everything else will fall into place or take care of itself. Qualities like respect, consideration of others, openness, a desire for peace, integrity, commitment, courage, and conscience do not happen by accident. They should not be left up to chance. Parents should realize the higher importance of instilling and encouraging these qualities and values in their children. How else will our future leaders be made? 

We can't let the world and the rest of society with their flawed belief system and selfish/materialistic priorities determine the fate and potential of our children. It's never too early to train your child's eye to recognize injustice when they see it. Let's build the right foundation for our youth and make sure they know the difference between being intelligent and being wise.

This is wonderful Ray. I have no children. I have 3 nephews. I cannot judge my sisters child rearing, but I have recently seen evidence that she also is aware of this duty to teach wisdom and to point out injustice. Thank her for me please. :-)

Where Type-A and Type-B have had to work within the framework of being backwards compatible, Type-C is intended to replace both and is designed to be small enough to not need any mini or micro variants. The intention is that it will completely replace all types of USB on both host and client devices.
USB Type-C: everything you need to know: How can Apple's new MacBook use just one connector? We explain what USB Type-C is all about.

Looks like we will finally be able to plug it in upside down if we want to as well. About freakin' time!

No, that's not Beyonce you're hearing, but 23 year old singer and songwriter, Gloria Tang Tsz-kei, better known as G.E.M. (which stands for: Get Everybody Moving) doing her live version of "If I Were A Boy".

Nothing ironic about it at all +Matt inLancaster. Mr. Goldsmith is making a statement about memes in general, not stating that he likes this particular meme. It's all in how you want to read it.

Story
Tagline
There is only one law when it comes to basic human interaction: Just do the right thing!
Introduction

in·di·vid·u·al  (ĭn′də-vĭj′o͞o-əl)

noun
1.     a.  A single human considered apart from a society or community:  the rights of the individual. 
        b.  A human regarded as a distinctive or unique personality:  always treated her client as individuals; felt he was quite an individual.
       
2.  A single organism as distinguished from a species, community or group. 
3.  member of a collection or set; a specimen.

These are the basic definitions for the word individual. 

In a narcissistic society, an individual can be defined in numerous and varied ways. Unfortunately however, people tend to define individuals in broader strokes and within stereotypical generic categories. This clumping of comparable types, set behaviors, etc., serves only to satisfy the like/dislike, positive/negative mentality of a mass community of people(s) in media, politics or religion. It is a convenience. It makes it genuinely easier to foist a limited view upon the greater population. Very productive as far as profits and propaganda are concerned, but not very useful in terms of one on one interaction.

On the other hand, persons of intelligence, with the ability for critical thought and understanding, realize that no two people are truly alike. A person's personality and mindset can be and often are as unique as one's fingerprints. For instance, given a set of circumstances, will two individuals endeavor to reach the same consensus, the same conclusions? Or will they debate the issue interminably with opposing viewpoints? Can a person of lesser intelligence be able to grasp the necessary knowledge to comprehend and proceed with what is laid out in front of them? 

To get inside another person's head, must you walk a mile in their shoes? Is it necessary to share in their travels; be able to sense the direction; the emotions in their words?  Complex questions need not demand complicated answers. There is much more to being a human individual than mere intelligence. A dose of compassion, compromise and humility would greatly aid a society so enraptured in technology but devoid of critical reciprocal communication. 

In the midst of a supposed rational debate, it is mutual respect that will conquer an inevitable animosity. It may not result in an agreement, but it will reach a better perspective. After all, it is no more than valuing another's opinions as much as you would want them to respect yours. 
Bragging rights
I don't consider boastfulness to be a redeeming quality; that I have managed to make a difference in at least one person's life; is.
