Does your life involve jumping from email, to tweets, to instant messages, to texts, to voice messages, to incoming mobile calls? Do you feel that you must stop what you are doing every few minutes and take a quick look at that text message clanging on your mobile or check the weather report on the internet or read the email that flashed a few lines on the edge of your screen as it plopped into your inbox?

“You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.
Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
~~Most Important Life Lesson for All~~
Steve Jobs Inspiring Speech
~~Published on Feb 3, 2014~~
Here is the Steve jobs inspiring speech which teaches most important life lesson for students, entrepreneurs, teachers, employees and everybody else.
About Steve Jobs
A child put up for adoption soon after birth, a college dropout who just had a single calligraphy course as his formal education could never have been a millionaire until he is Steve Jobs.
Jobs preached that no matter what happens in your life, struggles in school or an unsuccessful career path — every aspect will somehow help you down the road.
“Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards,” Jobs said. “So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something—your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
Jobs gave an inspiring commencement address at Stanford in 2005. Though he is not with us anymore, he made sure that he leaves behind a giant company we all know it today as the Apple.
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’
Air pollution in Asia may be changing weather patterns in the United States
BY CLARA CHAISSON
Increasingly intense storms in the United States might have an unexpected origin: Asian air pollution. Researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory have found that aerosols from across the Pacific strengthen extra-tropical cyclones — a type of storm system that drives much of our country’s weather.
Asia is home to the world’s 20 most polluted cities, but that dirty air doesn’t stay put, as the above animation of aerosol emissions shows. Water vapor in the atmosphere condenses around particles, and an influx of particulate matter — say, from a coal-fired power plant — can produce bigger, badder clouds. So far, the atmospheric scientists have only looked at how pollution from the continent affects North American weather, but they expect that the effects are global in scale. When countries around the world finalize carbon emissions commitments this year, let’s hope they remember we’re on different sides of the same planet.
JANUARY 3 Face Hacking- Real-Time Face Tracking & 3D Projection Mapping
Real-time face tracking and 3D projection mapping is a fairly new technology. Japanese technical director/producer Nobumichi Asai has created this amazing video displaying the amazing art show. This video superbly showcases how this combined technology can transform faces instantly, morphing them into various effects. This opens up a world of possibilities for global make-up brands and, perhaps theatrical performances.
While you wrestle with your own personal growth and development. The future is quickly making its presence known. You can choose to identify however you wish, belong to groups or clubs, all the while life is forcing us to look from the inside-out and outside-in being all inclusive rather than thinking in terms of ageless exclusivity. Simply put, we are evolving as a whole, not just parts. Science, art, technology, and music are just pieces to the puzzle.
The puzzle is yet another piece of a bigger picture and the bigger picture is but a snapshot in the scrapbook we call life. This continues Ad Infinitum. Forever. Forever will we be growing, learning, exploring the infinite. At issue is that forever is catching up to our today, this makes many people uneasy, intolerant, and nervous.

This is a disease that knows no bounds. There are no classes are spared. It attacks all walks of life …. no differences here. From famous to unknown, from rich to poor, from educated to illiterate. This disease is does not discriminate. Doesn’t matter who you are. Anyone can be infected.
World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December every year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection, and mourning those who have died of the disease. Government and health officials, non-governmental organizations and individuals around the world observe the day, often with education on AIDS prevention and control.
World AIDS Day is one of the eight official global public health campaigns marked by the World Health Organization (WHO), along with World Health Day, World Blood Donor Day, World Immunization Week, World Tuberculosis Day, World No Tobacco Day, World Malaria Day and World Hepatitis Day. Since 1995, the President of the United States has made an official proclamation on World AIDS Day.

“The Story Behind This Powerful Photo of a Black Boy Hugging a White Cop at a Ferguson Demonstration”
Amidst the many photos of hate, anger, sadness and sometimes outright destruction that have flooded the media since a grand jury decided not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, sparking riots and protests across the US, there are glimmers of hope and humanity.
One such glimmer was captured by Oregon-based freelance photographer Jonny Nguyen at a Ferguson demonstration in Portland earlier this week.
The photo shows 12-year-old Devonte Hart, his eyes welling with tears as he hugs Portland Police Sgt. Bret Barnum, and the story behind it was reported first by The Oregonian in an article published earlier today.
Apparently Hart — whose full profile is a truly inspirational read — was at the demonstration holding a sign that said “free hugs” when Barnum noticed him with tears in his eyes. He motioned the young man over and the two began talking.
After they were done, Barnum pointed to the sign and asked “Do I get one of those?” A question Hart answered with a tearful hug. Fortunately for those of us who need to have our faith in humanity restored on occasion, Nguyen was there with his camera.
