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".

"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..."

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.

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.

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!

Story

Respect is not something which can be bought; it must be earned!
Introduction
An individual can be defined in numerous and varied ways. Mostly though, people are grouped in broad strokes within generic categories. This clumping of comparable types, behaviors, etc., serves only to satisfy the like/dislike, positive/negative mentality of mass media. It makes it genuinely easier to foist limited views upon a greater population. Very productive as far as profits and propaganda are concerned, but not very useful in terms of actual quality interaction.

People of intelligence, with the ability for rational thought, know that no two people are truly alike. A person's character, personality and mindset can be and are as unique as one's fingerprints. Given a set of circumstances, will two individuals endeavor to reach the same consensus, the same conclusions? Or will they debate the issue interminably from opposing sides? Can an individual with lesser intelligence be able to grasp the necessary knowledge to comprehend and proceed with what is laid out in front of them? 

To really know any one person, must you really walk in their shoes? Is it necessary to share in their travels; be able to sense the direction and tone in their words?  Complex questions, no? There is so much more to being human than mere intelligence. A healthy dose of compromise and empathy is also recommended; and in the midst of a supposed rational debate, it is respect that will conquer an inevitable animosity. 

In the end, it is about valuing other's opinions as much as you would want them to respect your own. 
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.
