So apparently powdered alcohol has been invented. I want to know the science/chemistry behind this. Coming this fall… In lemondrop, cosmo, rum, and other flavors.
Exercise isn’t just helping keep you fit, and healthy, it’s also good for your skin!
My stupid mouth has got me in trouble
I said too much again
To a date over dinner yesterday
And I could see she was offended
She said “well anyway”
Just dying for a subject change
Oh, another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could I forget
Mama said “think before speaking”
No filter in my head
Oh, what’s a boy to do?
I guess he better find one soon

We’re all familiar with the expression of ‘listening’ in community management, but are you asking? I’m not talking about asking questions to increase engagement on your social channels, but asking to get feedback, to make things better.
Often companies make changes, and add new features without asking, or even consulting their communities. It’s not always necessary, and if you’re a company like…

The first trailer for The Giver. I remember reading the book years ago. With movies like Hunger Games and Divergent, the market for this genre is already becoming over-saturated, just like vampires. This story came out first, but will it stand on it’s own?
"Can You Stream Me Now?"
If the answer is no, you’re probably going to be looking at the spinning wheel of death on your laptop for a very long time. After making a big, bold promise to wire every corner of America, the telecom giants are running away from their vow to provide nationwide broadband service by 2020.
For almost 20 years, AT&T, Verizon and the other big players have collected hundreds of billions of dollars through rate increases and surcharges to finance that ambitious plan, but after wiring the high-density big cities, they now say it’s too expensive to connect the rest of the country. But they’d like to keep all that money they banked for the project.
In 2010, the FCC announced the National Broadband Plan, which promised to provide 100 million American households with high-speed cable by 2020. Verizon has been expanding FiOS in major markets, and AT&T has been expanding its U-verse service. And now, instead of spending that war chest digging up streets and laying fiber cable, the cable and telephone companies have invested in a massive and very successful lobbying push.
They are persuading state legislatures and regulatory boards to quietly adopt new rules - rules written by the telecoms - to eliminate their legal obligations to provide broadband service nationwide and replace landlines with wireless. This abrupt change in plans will leave vast areas of the country with poor service, slow telecommunications and higher bills.
This is good news if you own stock in Verizon, but very bad news if you have a small business that’s not in a city already wired up.

Already having trouble with that New Year’s resolution? Take a page from Caroline Arnold’s book, “Small Change, Big Move,” and shrink it into a manageable “microresolution.”
It’s a stupid situation now
Where everything goes wrong
If you can’t tell if I am lying
Then you do not belong
In my bed
Go rest your head
Upon the bones of a bigger man
He can cover you with rock wool
And you can close up like a clam
I wouldn’t want you to want
To be wanted by me
I wouldn’t want you to worry
You’d be drowned within my sea
I only wanted to be wonderful
And wonderful is true
In truth I only really wanted
To be wanted by you
The only Bey I can actually listen to
Who’s excited for season 2 of House of Cards?
