What the Show “Friends” Did Right

A Writer's Path


The television show Friends was immensely popular. It won 62 Primetime Emmy Awards. According to the Nielsen ratings, it was within the top 5 shows for 9 solid years. Personally, I loved it. Its message said that with the right friends, we can weather anything that life throws at us.

Angst Anarchy

Admin O of  An Opinionated World is sharing his thoughts on expertise via a mini-rant.  Who doesn’t like an nicely opinionated mini-rant now and then?  The question he’s tackling: Do you need a degree to be an expert? Does that happy little piece of paper make you legit? Take it away, Mr. O!

One of the reason I created my blog a year and a half ago was to voice my opinions, opinions that were sometimes listened to but not often considered valid because I am not an “expert” on the topic. I am amongst the many people who are ignored because the knowledge we speak was not taught to us for years in a classroom and later justified with a piece of paper that says we “passed” the subject.

Believers gotta stop freaking out

Chris Martin Writes

This was my Facebook status earlier today.

Stop shouting “Keep Christ in Christmas” and “He is the reason for the season.” If we’re saying those things while judging others, our witness is a big fat zero.

The inevitable future of police bodycams: Video or it didn’t happen? Perhaps the best indicator that the on-officer camera is an idea whose time has come is that business journals are now producing whole articles about the market gains of the companies that provide them. TASER International, Digital Ally, and GoPro have all seen dramatic gains in their valuations as the police surveillance market quietly begins to pick up momentum. Pending Congressional approval, one key driver of this potential windfall will be a new funding initiative from the Obama administration to provide $263 million to improve community relations with police through cameras.
