I consider throwing on the same T-shirt and jeans or suit and tie -- day in, day out -- a missed opportunity to improve your productivity before you head into the workplace. That bit of mental energy and time you may devote to finding something new to wear every morning can very well pay off dividends, I find. It's meditation by menswear.
Granted that Zuckerberg and other wealthy individuals do such public and private acts and structure their affairs to their advantage, my point is that most people will do the same and nobody does anything without expecting something in return, be it material benefits, fame, feeling good about oneself, reward in the afterlife, or other tangible and intangible benefits.
With all the wild rumours circulating about Facebook, it's sometimes hard to know what to believe. Will we start to charge people money to use our service? No. Do you have to copy and paste that scary legal message your friends are sharing? No, that's just a good old fashioned Internet hoax. But there are a few steps you can take on Facebook to protect your personal information, and we're more than happy to share.
Being a nice guy in Hollywood seems oxymoronic. I've never heard anyone refer to me as that, but it's very sweet. I don't know, that's like being called the humblest banker. If you're a working actor, you're in a very, very small percentage of very fortunate people. I think 97 per cent of union actors are out of work, and that's actors in the union.
For many Canadians, Canada Day is the beginning of their vacation. What will you do? Where will you go to unplug & reconnect? Whenever I participate on call-in shows, the most popular questions that I receive, are usually about tipping etiquette. Canadians from coast-to-coast want to know; to give or not to give and how much.
I think it's time to tame the tiger. Not the tawny, majestic creature that stalks the Indian jungle. The tech tiger, the wizard, the miracle, conceived in-vitro by geeky young scientists and bred in captivity by dotcom wunderkinds. I like technology. But in our headlong rush to seize its potential, we've grown heedless of its dangers.
Facebook can't fail. There are one billion users. Switching costs are just too high -- people can't go elsewhere when all of their friends are on Facebook. That's what the folks at Friendster and MySpace thought -- just before users abandoned them in droves. Facebook could be next -- especially if they keep interrupting their users.
On December 2, poet Suli Breaks posted a spoken word video titled "Why I Hate School But Love Education." Breaks' video certainly does have some positive elements but his argument is flawed in many ways. He reduces a post secondary education to something which takes place solely in the classroom. Regardless of what Breaks believes, school can foster education beyond the traditional methods.
