Bill Gates is thinking about our future

By , October 1, 2017 12:28 pm

The Atlantic interviewed Bill Gates about moving forward beyond fossil fuels. Gates is on a campaign to push the development of alternate entry sources and move away from coal and oil. To help he is committing $2 billion dollars of his own money.

In his offices overlooking Lake Washington, just east of Seattle, Bill Gates grabbed a legal pad recently and began covering it in his left-handed scrawl. He scribbled arrows by each margin of the pad, both pointing inward. The arrow near the left margin, he said, represented how governments worldwide could stimulate ingenuity to combat climate change by dramatically increasing spending on research and development. “The push is the R&D,” he said, before indicating the arrow on the right. “The pull is the carbon tax.” Between the arrows he sketched boxes to represent areas, such as deployment of new technology, where, he argued, private investors should foot the bill. He has pledged to commit $2 billion himself.

Say Hello

By , June 6, 2016 8:24 pm

This video by Dr. Sanjay Gupta about saying hello to people hit home with me. I’m a firm believer of this. It also goes with a couple favorite quotes of mine.

Always leave people better than you found them. Hug the hurt. Kiss the broken. Befriend the lost. Love the lonely.
-unknown

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Leo Buscaglia

Do me a favor. Tomorrow, say hello to every person you see and give someone a hug. It will make you feel better and possibly make the other person feel better too. Show people that you still care.

This is a favorite quote of mine.

If you think someone needs a hug, hug them. It might just brighten up their day or their life.

What do you do?

By , November 25, 2015 7:13 am

What do you do when you lost a friend that you never wanted to lose? How do you deal with the pain of losing her? Can you figure out a way to find her again, renew the friendship that was lost? Or do you just deal with the pain every time you see her and be thankful for the time that you were friends. Because deep down you know you’ll never find a friend like her again.

This is too funny
