Dope Movie

It’s funny how sometimes I don’t want to tell you something. Like the scenes that made me want to cry in this movie. You just know there are real people actually living the reality of being born into a situation. It makes you realize how lucky you are, really.

I’m going to sleep on this. But, in the meantime, I’m willing to say this is an insightful movie, rife with poignant scenes that may make you think about how tough things may be for some people.

There are times when change happens so slowly, it is almost unnoticeable. Years pass and someone finally says, “Hey, things are so different now!” 

There are also times like these for people like me, who work feverishly to keep up with the constant changes in online communication, specifically, what affects search results. While I still thank Microsoft for making things so difficult for so many users (as this fact provides a steady income for me), I’m now starting to see Google in the same light.

Every change Google makes to the way it ranks content for search results results in the need for another creative way to explain how this is going to impact your potential customers’ ability to find your website when searching for your product or service. So, thanks, Google. This is the first time I can recall ever being able to use the word, “results,” twice, consecutively, in a sentence that makes sense.

And, if you’ve come this far, ah, that’s nice. So, did you make the association of the image to the topic? If so, good for you. Now, be kind and drop me a line, so I’ll know you were here. Thanks.

Unforced Errors

Unforced Errors

This will be a “short” article, as that’s where people on Twitter seem to have focused their attention this morning…. (French Open 2015: Stan Wawrinka’s shorts become talk of Twitter – source: http://edition.cnn.com/2015/06/08/tennis/stan-wawrinka-shorts-french-open/) 
How very APROPOS!

Commentary on television: “He ended three times as many points as Federer.” This was said after they showed stats on the winners and unforced errors on the two players (Djokovic and Wawrinka) battling for the championship in the French Open. Ending points with winners or errors says lot about a player.

The point was made that unforced errors combined with winners is an important factor in determining the outcome of the match. GOING FOR IT is incredibly important! I was reminded of Gretzky’s, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

Further research yields stats on guys like Jordan and Ruth. Even Lincoln was a failure for many years and used this phrase in his most famous speech: “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here….” There’s more to say on this, but I promised to keep it short.
