Want to know how the super rich get richer, and the super poor get poorer; then watch this video. In short, it is called thievery. Taking more than you need when someone else hasn’t even got a slice is the reason for grave inequality around the world. Don’t be greedy!
I thought this was an interesting video because of the historical insight he gave, but also the fact that in religions, there is a spiritual aspect but there is also the law.
He said the the law are the rules, but the spiritual aspect, which gravitated to more, was the actual game. No one should sit around reading the rules all day. Eventually, one must get out there and play by expressing love to one another.
There’s this thing called the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon or affect where you see something you want and shortly after you then begin to see it everywhere.
This is what is going on with me right now with gluten free. Everywhere I go, they are putting gluten free on the package of everything.
I believe I saw gluten free on a laptop I was looking at the other. Popcorn, naturally gluten free, now has it on the package. Gluten free ebooks, gluten free water, gluten free lotion, gluten free shoes, and even gluten free sweaters.
I wonder if it is that important to be gluten free, or if marketers are trying to make people comfortable and subconsciously get them to purchase with a Jedi mind trick. It doesn’t make sense to tell me certain things are gluten free.
I wasn’t sure if it was just the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon or not, have you noticed that? Anyway, just so you also feel comfortable, this blogpost is gluten free.
What kind of problems have you faced that got smaller when you saw some of the problems of other people in the world?
Aaron Marino talks about how he realized that scrolling through his newsfeed on Facebook made him feel like a loser. He felt like a ‘weird’ after seeing all of these amazing experiences and amazing relationships other people were having.
He felt like he was ‘missing something’ and that his life was ‘deficient’. He felt like people were jamming how amazing they are and how amazingly incredible their lives are. He started feeling bummed out.
His theory is that Facebook is causing people to feel badly about themselves and making them feel depressed, both the people posting stuff, and the people watching what these people post. Aaron called his friend (Mike) who is a licensed therapist about how destructive social media can be. Mike said that social media is indeed destructive, causing people to feel worse about themselves as they view other people living a fake “Facebook” lifestyle.
Aaron, like you, should feel vindicated and put it all in perspective.
Aaron acknowledges that what you see on social media (Facebook) is not reality! Like online dating, you can craft a persona and mislead people.
The fact is that is everyone has problems, issues, and insecurities. Social media is a place to post amazing things, and for someone looking in through this key-hole, they can start feeling unfulfilled.
You should make sure that if you are spending too much time on social media platform and you are feeling like you need to compete, it’s okay to live a life that is normal. You need to live a life off of the computer. Realize that living is not done on or in front the computer. Make your own amazing memories and life even if you’re not posting it! Put it in perspective!

Gotta love ole Uncle Drew, Kyrie Irving is investing in his future by doing these short films about ole school hoops as he plays the character “Uncle Drew.” Uncle Drew lives the dream of all ball players, that is to be able to play like a kid does in our older age.
They are humorous and get him working on his acting skills, something he may undertake in the future after his playing career. He has invited fellow players like Ray Allen, and it was a matter of time before Baron Davis came out of the woodworks to play a role. It will hopefully bring elder greats out of the wordworks also to share their stories within uncle Drew’s. Enjoy!
Any athletes out there wish they could still do it like Uncle Drew? Leave a comment below!
It does gross me out that there is such a large disparity in rich and poor in the world, and more so that we have the dominion to change that. This video gives some light on what the rich nations are doing that the poor nations are not when it comes to economics and the welfare of its citizens. What do you think?
And what do you think we as a global society today can do to change it? Leave a comment below!
This young man stands 6 inches from 8 feet, he is straight dark chocolate and a ball of joy to be around (those who are around him say so). The intriguing and inspiring thing about Elhadji Tacko Sereigne Diop Fall (AKA Tacko Fall), is that he’d rather be a Stevie Jobs than a Michael Jordan.
Jordan and LeBron James are selling shoes and doing well in business, but Fall is a real smart dude. He got a scholarship for hoops, but was also brought into the engineering program full ride too.
I took note that he is from Senegal and they along with Sudan, Nigeria, and India, produce really good math prodigies. China is okay too :)! This is inspiring to show to young kids who aspire to play school sports and to play professionally.
Think about the future. Sports at extreme levels like the NBA are a two decade sport at its’ best. Your brain and smarts is forever!
