Why I Love Friday the 13th

Only around 10 percent of modern day Americans believe that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day, yet it is still a well recognized superstition, causing people to joke about it and be perhaps a little more cautious than usual.[1] Friday the thirteenth falls between one and three times a year,[2] providing you with a good excuse for celebrating it in a fun way and perhaps, even for facing your fears about it should you have any.

Whether or not you think it’s an unlucky day, or an unlucky number, celebrating the day might be a way to throw less negative light on it and serve as some reassurance for you.

Why I Love Friday the 13th and celebrate it today, is found in the results of two incidents.

1. Christian tradition points to unlucky 13 in that Judas, betrayer of Jesus, was the 13th guest at the Last Supper.

2. Christian tradition also points to a reason for bad luck being associated with Friday – it’s the day of the week on which Jesus was crucified.

Without these two incidents in history, we would still be lost. However because of these two incidents in history, we are found.
That’s Why I Love Friday the 13th.

Have you noticed that you are only seeing updates in your newsfeed from ….the same people lately? Have you also noticed that when you post things like status messages, photos and links, the same circle of people are commenting and everyone else seems to be ignoring you?

Don’t worry, everyone still loves you and nobody has intentionally blocked you. The problem is that a large chunk of your friend/fan list can’t see anything you post and here’s why:

The “New Facebook” has a newsfeed setting that by default is automatically set to show ONLY posts from people who you’ve recently interacted with or interacted the most with (which would be limited to the couple of weeks just before people started switching to the new profile). So in other words, for both business and personal pages, unless your friends/fans commented on one of your posts within those few weeks or vice versa – you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you!!

HERE’S THE FIX: On the homepage click the “Most Recent” title on the right of the Newsfeed, then click on the drop down arrow beside it and select “Edit Options”, click on “Show Posts From” and change the setting to “All Of Your Friends and Pages” (you can also access the “Edit Options” link at the very bottom of the facebook homepage on the right) Note: Business pages do not have a newsfeed however page owners should adjust the settings on their personal accounts.

QR Code Advantages

QR Code advantages are numerous. This post is to showcase just a few examples of QR Code advantages that compliments the business owner as well as the individual sharing their photo album with a friend.

Sears use of their QR Code is awesome. It could mean the difference between closing or loosing a sale. A customer with a QR Code reader on their mobile phone can
be directed to a video that shows features and benefits of the tool while they are in the store.

Right now, as you read this page, people on are using their dynamic QR’s to expand their network, enhance their business, sell their products, promote their website, showcase their art, find a job, play with friends… the options are limitless. Bloggers, Twitter and Facebook users, musicians, videomakers, party people, ministers, marketing professionals, realtors, retailers, wine distributors, job recruiting companies, and scholars has a QR Code in their tool box of marketing.
QR Codes will make your audience’s point of passion actionable: posters, stickers, flyers, packaging, T-shirts (and lots more) become a rich point of discovery. Your new fan can immediately experience video, download digital content, connect on social networks, win prizes, and soon even make purchases.

The computational knowledge engine can now generate QR Codes. If you type in “QR Code:” followed by the information (up to 7KB of data) you want encoded a QR Code is generated with the option to change the size, download as a PDF.

QR Code advantages are plentiful, however it can be aggravating to someone without the capability of a mobile phone QR reader to scan the Code.
Oh well they’ll get over it, because QR Codes are here to stay.

Charlie Sheen Comment

In my opinion, Mr. Charlie Sheen, professionally, deserves a public apology from management.

I also believe that Mr. Charlie Sheen owes a public apology to management, crew, you and me.

There are special gifts given to some of us and Mr. Charlie Sheen has one of those special gifts.. The gift to win. He has the ability to defeat any challenge that robs him of his personal wholeness and drive to win, when he decides in his mind and spirit, enough is enough.

AA is good for many, but for a few it’s a room of fellow liars and hypocrites’ who can’t wait until the session is over, so that they can get their drink, or drug of choice on.

However, as a business owner I understand how management expects each employee to conduct themselves in on and off stage. Therefore I suggest that both sides kiss and make up, because it seems that in this case, we all loose. Me, you , management crew and Mr. Charlie Sheen.

It has been said “no one man is an island”. There are stories of great men and women who were at the top of their game, and in the twinkling of an eye, found themselves looking up to see the bottom. Why? Because of the words and or actions of those concerned.

At the same time, some guys are an island, they are good at what they do and would succeed in their future endeavors. I personally would prefer to see the next episode of the funniest sit-com on TV. Two And A Half Men. Can I get an Amen!

Young Positive Role Models

The Grammy Awards is a first class production, with few if any glitches, such as wrong camera angles or sound systems dead air time. The one thing that made me most proud of the Grammy Award family, is they stayed true to their heritage. The Best New Artist may not sell the most CD’s or be the most popular new artist.
Jazz artist aren’t typically nominated in this category, which makes this extra special.

Please meet our newest Young Positive Role Model, Ms. Esperanza Spalding, the 53rd Grammy Awards 2011 Best New Artist of the Year. Esperanza deftly blends classical and jazz to create modern chamber music, with touches of folk and world music as well.

Although she was raised in a single parent home, that didn’t stop Esperanza Spalding from finding and pursuing her niche in life. Jazz. She has performed for President Barack Obama, worked with Jazz legends like Herbie Hancock and Prince.

What makes Esperanza stand apart from many artist is her desire to shine the light on not only herself, but wishes her accomplishment illuminates the many facets of jazz for her and her colleagues alike.
Her next performance will be in Portland Oregon at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts, Newmark Center.

Esperanza stated back stage that finding and pursuing her niche in life was easy, because of her love for music. “It’s in my heart” she said. Keep your eyes and ears open for her latest release “Chamber Music Society”. Meet our newest Young Positive Role Model. Ms. Esperanza Spalding.

Young Positive Role Models

Young Positive Role Model’s
the series, is dedicated to those young and old who have not been able to find their niche in life, until now. Young positive role models will share their one moment of choice, that they think, made a difference in their life.

Just the other day I ran into an associate of mine by the name of Mr. Hill, at the Metropolitan Square gift shop, in Beautiful Downtown St. Louis Mo. Mr. Hill is a retired Security guard and client of mine at Complete Auto Wash And Wax, at the Met.

When I saw him glowing in the gift shop, I wanted to know what it was that made him look as if he had seen an angel. Did he have a winning lottery ticket? They had sold a winning ticket the week before for $725,000

No, Mr Hill was on cloud nine because he was a proud papa. He began to tell me that his daughter was featured in a Jet magazine article on page 39. I immediately grabbed a copy and searched for the daughter of Mr. Hill.

Shazzam, there she is. Ms. Tanise Hill, age 27, senior designer for Restricted Footwear a Womans shoe Manufacturer in Los Angeles California. He proudly said, she’s also in O magazine. Now I understood why Mr. Hill was glowing. He was a proud Papa.

I immediately did my google search on Ms Tanise Hill and was thrilled to see a young positive role model, who made one positive choice that drove her to pursue her niche in life. After reading about Ms. Hill, and thinking about how proud I am of my two daughters who have both found their niche ‘s in life, I understood why Mr Hill was glowing. Right then and there, I decided, that there is enough negative press about our young folks, lets here some good news. Hence this article young positive role models, was born.

Whether young or old, we could all learn something from a young positive role model, that can lead us towards finding our niche in life. Hopefully comments from our young positive role models will help someone.

If you have a young positive role model that you are proud of, please share your comments with us.
