One of the most Valuable Resource in the World Today
Chris Martin: “ One of the most dire consequences in our parasitic relationship using the social internet, inside my view, is the willingness to freely give up treasure troves of data regarding ourselves. Just in the last week or so, it was uncovered that 533 mil Facebook users had personal data leak from the website. The information included phone numbers plus email addresses. It ranks in the top five web data leaks of all time. ”
Loyalty Matters: The particular Misunderstood Virtue
This is an interesting look at the virtue associated with loyalty. “ Being a leader, I don’t anticipate that everyone that works for me may agree with every decision I make.

Per year later, I was getting testosterone shots. When 20, I had the double mastectomy. By then, I appeared to possess a more masculine develop, as well as a man’s tone of voice, a man’s facial beard, and a man’s name: Quincy, after Quincy Jones. ” While it’ s not written from a Alfredia perspective, it appropriately communicates the tragedy of what’ ersus happening today to a growing number of girls and boys.

Flashback: I Wish I used to be Rich
Generosity isn’t about how much you have, but what you do with the bit you do have. It isn’t about what you will do with more, but what you actually do with what you’ve got.
