  13. 80% of Twitter usage is outside of Twitter…people update anywhere, anytime…imagine what that means for bad customer experiences?
  14. Generation Y and Z consider e-mail passé…In 2009 Boston College stopped distributing e-mail addresses to incoming freshmen

  32. According to Jeff Bezos 35% of book sales on Amazon are for the Kindle when available
  33. 24 of the 25 largest newspapers are experiencing record declines in circulation because we no longer search for the news, the news finds us.

Also, if you haven’t seen Marta Kagan’s “What The F**K is Social Media”presentation,  it’s amazing! Many of the same eye-popping facts are contained in it – as well as many more.  Plus, it does a much better job of providing insight than my video which is designed to grab attention.  Kagan’s presentation informs, check it out!

To watch a video with millions of YouTube views and deservedly so, please check out Karl Fisch and Scott McCleod’s Did You Know? It is filled with compelling stats that relate to globalization, education and technology – Love it!

Challenging Paranormal Field

What Now? 

JOIN THE HauntingsTelevison ning site at-

When I first heard about this, I have to be honest; I thought it was just another group of crazies out there proverbially holding hands on the internet again – where (Lets Face It) most crazies seem to find a home &/or a companion or two to while away their hours in a blissful feeding frenzy of conspiracy and tin foil hats.

Frankly, I wish that would have been the case this time, as I would have felt much better, and certainly more secure in simply brushing them all aside in one clean sweep, But the more I began researching the technology, the claims and the evidence of these individuals – well frankly the more disturbing the facts surrounding their claims, and the technology existing to support them, became.

As a researcher, I have explored virtually anything & everything one might possibly care ‘or not care’ to explore, I have walked in haunted houses, tracked big foot on more than one occasion and even sat up all night waiting with a group of folks expecting a space ship to land, and its occupants to greet them. Most were neither haunted, nor did I get greeted by a firm hand shake or even so much as a lit finger of an ET.. sigh.

In all fairness, I have also run into many things which simply can not be explained, and thus were indeed paranormal, or outside of explanation from which they could be made by genuine effort “normal”. – So I know these events indeed do occur.

The paranormal has never been a ‘belief’ system for me personally, it has always been a field of study; as such, scrutiny or what has come to be known as ‘debunking’ is a vital part of that field.

And all of that was said to bring me to this: SOMETHING I CAN’T DEBUNK-

SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEWS: Featuring- Derrick Robinson, President of the Freedom From Covert Harassment and Surveillance group, he along side others strongly believe, that their lives are being invaded by covert surveillance technology, and what they might tell us all, could change everything.

First segment Cloud Computing, think otside the box

Wikapedia defines

Cloud computing is Internet– (“cloud-“) based development and use of computer technology  1*(“computing“).[1] In concept, it is a paradigm shift whereby details are abstracted from the users who no longer need knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure “in the cloud” that supports them.[2] Cloud computing describes a new supplement, consumption and delivery model for IT services based on Internet, and it typically involves the provision of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources as a service over the Internet.[3][4]

The term cloud is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on the cloud drawing used to depict the Internet in computer network diagrams as an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure it represents.[5] Typical cloud computing providers deliver common business applications online which are accessed from a web browser, while the software and data are stored on servers.

1*Computing is usually defined as the activity of using and improving computer technology, computer hardware and software. It is the computer-specific part of information technology. Computer science (or computing science) is the study and the science of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and their implementation and application in computer systems.Jump to: navigation, search

Everything as a service (EaaS,[1] XaaS[2], *aaS[3]) is a concept of being able to call up re-usable, fine-grained software components across a network.[4] It is a subset of cloud computing. The most common and successful example is software as a service (SaaS), but the as a service moniker has been associated with many other functions including communication, infrastructure and platforms, most of which are core components of cloud computing. With extremely low barriers to entry (often accessible for free or with a personal credit card), the offerings were adopted by consumers and small businesses before pushing into mid-sized and large enterprise space.[5] This is the primary differentiator from other Service Oriented Architecture offerings.

Segment 2

Raw Foods

Raw foodism (or rawism) is a lifestyle promoting the consumption of un-cooked, un-processed, and often organic foods as a large percentage of the diet. Raw foodists typically believe that the greater the percentage of raw food in the diet, the greater the health benefits. Raw foodism or a raw diet is usually equated with raw veganism in which only raw plant foods are eaten,[1] but other raw foodists emphasize raw meat and other raw animal products.[2] Depending on the type of lifestyle and results desired, raw food diets may include a selection of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds (including sprouted whole grains such as gaba rice), eggs, fish (such as sashimi), meat (such as carpaccio), and non-pasteurized/non-homogenized dairy products (such as raw milk, raw milk cheese, and raw milk yogurt). Raw foodists can be divided between those that advocate raw vegetarianism or raw veganism, and those that advocate a raw omnivorous diet.

Adherents of raw foodism believe that consumption of uncooked foods encourages health benefits.
