Happy Birthday Disneyland!!
Disneyland turns 61 today, and I know that theDiamondCelebration is almost over, but luckily we still have a couple of months to enjoy the Diamond Celebration and all of its magic.
Last year I waslucky enoughto visit Disnyeland twice, one time during summer, and the second time for the holidays. And I must say that the Diamond Celebration is one most beautiful things I’ve seen in my life and something that I’ll treasure in my heart forever.
There are so many things going on that you’ll feel overwhelmed with excitement. The castle looks prettier than ever, at least in my opinion, and everything is decorated in blue and diamonds (two of my favorite things … we’ll that’s gonna make me look posh, but even though I’ve never seen a real diamond, I love shining sparkling things :D … and blue is my favorite color … now let’s continue). The characters are dressed up in their best outfits and the atmosphere feels extra magical.
If your network is composed of hundreds of devices, it's next to impossible to keep an eye on each of them. Cloud monitoring system is the solution in matter of safety and automatic maintenance.
Some networks integrate dozens of different sensors. But with your cloud monitoring system, you manage a single interface. Connected sensors, as well as wireless sensors, are adapted to any situation, and able to react to any scenario. The data coming in the form of electric impulsions, is read, analyzed and diffused to your central dashboard. Data may be stored in a computer or in a server. You access it easily, via your desktop, your GPS phone, or your usual browser, with your login and password.
For food industry, the temperature of the products is always a critical point. Products must be preserved, in not to hot or not to cold conditions. In particular, you have to be sure that the cold-chain was respected during shipping.
I wrothe this for my mom a few weeks ago. She didn't really die, so I'm not sure why, but I call it Eulogy for my Mother. Enjoy
I wish you could have lived forever.
Even though I've been dreading this day
Since I couldn't even open doors by myself,
The word of the month is Turnover. My bottom bitch went back home to China for a month. Sliz decided to stop fucking me.. “I don’t want you to feel like I’m discarding your dick.” But that’s exactly what you’re doing. She threw in some bullshit like, “I’m just exploring my queerness,” and “I don’t feel like having multiple partners anymore,” but she’s still fucking multiple straight guys, and sure as hell isn’t monogamous. If you think that’s emasculating, just wait there’s more:
Grace, the oldest girl in my stable. Not the most emotionally stable person, she’s now on Lexapro and Klonopin just like my crazy ex-girlfriend was. But I kept her around for this long because the sex was consistent and she has good hygiene and an open mind. For the last few months she’s been fucking a hung black guy. This I have no issue with, but the last time I fingered her, I damn near got my entire first in there. After she commented that her loosening was adversely affecting sex with me, I took into consideration her choice of attire which include involve thrift-store jeggings and self-harm scars that spell STOP EATING and her social ineptitude and fired her. Her pussy wasn’t even a big deal, at least it smelled fine. It was her ironic lack of social grace that threw me over the edge. I brought her to a pool party where someone she just met asked her, “So what have you been up to since high school?” to which she replied, “Catching dicks.” She might’ve been going for Proud Slut, but she came off as Possibly Autistic.
So that’s one girl missing in action, and two hard goodbyes. But wait, there’s more!
At the end of the month, my boss calls me in while working remote and fires me. No notice, no severance, no compensation for my unused vacation days and certainly no vested 401k match. The thing I’ll miss most is my company iPhone. Tinder runs like a crippled Chinese woman on my Galaxy S2.
I’ve never felt that having money is important for getting laid until you get older. But I can’t say that being unemployed helps either. By September my stable was down to two. It’s hard to bounce back from this, but in New York, there are opportunities everywhere. I’ll be back on my feet in no time.
I'm going to be honest. I planned on writing this post almost a month ago, just as soon as I got back from the trip that inspired it. However, I was working on a piece for a small magazine here in Laramie, and I received some all but encouraging comments back from my editors. Blunt and honest do not even begin to describe the language used to define this story I had worked so hard on and invested so much time, energy, and (let's be honest) emotion into. I have done some soul searching, a little bit of revising, and a lot of self-talk, but I am finally able to sit at my computer and write something for other people to read. Just don't be too brutal - my confidence is still in recovery.
Anyway, back to the "trip" I mentioned before, the one that inspired this new post. In reality, the things I should limit myself to writing here are only a small fragment of the enormous lessons, experiences, and all together awe-inspiring sights, smells, and sounds I was immersed in during the later part of May and early June. The parts I want to focus on in this post, however, have mostly to do with the TASTES.
First, I suppose I should mention where I went (assuming on the off-chance that someone other than members of my immediate family are reading this).
I traveled to Israel for a course with my university. Yes, I got lost in the Holy Land for a few short weeks with some classmates and our wonderfully outgoing Jewish professor. There are a lot of things I could write about for a very long time: the unmistakable religiosity and orthodoxy of Jerusalem; the intense social battle surrounding women's rights at the Western Wall; the stillness of the Dead Sea, and the depressing state of its perpetual vanishing act; the remarkably progressive state of Tel Aviv (which boasts the largest gay pride parade in the Middle East); the disturbing quiet air that occupies both the edge of the Gaza strip in the southwest corner and the Golan Heights in the northeast corner; the beautiful and enlightening Holocaust exhibits and memorials; and the overall magnitude of seeing the most ancient sites in the world. I could write a book about these things. A long one. But for the sake of this blog, I am going to stick with one of the most surprisingly pleasant experiences in Israel (for a dairy-free eater, that is) - the food.
I am back ladies and gentlemen. I know, I know. Its been a while since my last post and I am terribly sorry to keep you waiting this long. (you better be!) Things happen and distractions pop up out of nowhere blah, blah, blah lets move on!
There hasn't been much in the movie department that has stood out recently so I have been holding out. I may have come across two movies that have completely taken me by storm though. First of two is, of course in the title, Birdman. I have been sitting on this egg for a little bit of time and finally got around to watching it. I always like to think that things happen when they are suppose to and this movie seemed to start playing at the right time. Habituals below:
Today begins a ten-day coding tournament for our newest multiplayer arena level, Zero Sum. It’s a mirror match between red and blue, with both heroes as Sorcerers sporting the same powerful weapons and armor. Collect gold, summon armies, command minions, cast spells, and fight dirty!
On Monday, April 6th at 5PM PDT, we’ll snapshot the leaderboards and do some additional ranking to crown the two champion angels of eternal glory, but you can keep playing after it ends. If you enjoyed our past two tournaments, you'll love this one. You don’t need to have played CodeCombat before to play, although complete newbie programmers may want to play the campaign first.
New stuff: controllable artillery and griffin riders plus access to Pender Spellbane and the goldstorm, raise-dead, fear, and drain-life spells. Plus mana-blast and reset-cooldown. And a yeti in a cage. I even put some birds in there.
A solar-powered aircraft took off successfully from Abu Dhabi on 9 March 2015 in its first attempt to fly around the world without fossil fuel. Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg of Switzerland will take turns to pilot the plane dubbed Solar Impulse 2 (Si2). Piccard and Borschberg are the co-inventors of the Si2. The will take her for a spin to India, China and America before flying back to Abu Dhabi through South Europe or North Africa. The activities of the Si2 will be monitored by her control center at Monte Carlo of Monaco the Xinghua reported. Conor Lennon, communications manager of the Si2 project, told Xinhua that the control center is in charge of "meteorological data monitoring, air traffic control, mission control and flight strategy control", adding that many promotional activities would take place during the aircraft's stopover in Nanjing, China.
With a width of about 72 meters, the Si2 is wider than a Boeing 747 jet. She only weighs 2.3 tons which slightly heavier than a sedan. She employ more than 17,000 solar cells on her wings to power up four electric motors. Solar Impulse 2 is expected to complete the 35,000 km journey within five months.

There's obviously a lot of grey area and overlap, but I think I should write about the differences anyways. Mainly because a lot of the things people say to questioning people frustrate and confuse people with HOCD.
One of the key concepts of Mindfulness is paying attention to what's going on around you, right now, at this very moment. Not five minutes ago, or five minutes from now.
A good question that people ask is simply 'Why?'. Why is it such a key concept?
The simple answer is because there is a story in almost every thing around you.
So many times we focus on what we perceive as the 'big' things. A vacation next summer. Christmas. A party this weekend.
The filler time we have between these big events is the grind that people go through to get from one 'big' event to the next one. The Grind, its often called. Work. School. Family commitments. Preparing meals. Exercising. Daily routines.
