No, I Did Not Watch the State of the Union Address This Year

Nope, didn’t do it. That’s right, I didn’t watch the President’s State of the Union address tonight. I guess it is safe to say that I feel disenfranchised from American politics at the moment. I mean it’s been a really tough year. A year where a lot of latent racial tension has boiled to the…

Million Dollar Lemonade Stands in “The Dragon’s Den”

I’m not a person who watches a lot of television; it’s been almost a decade since I’ve had cable. But I do have Netflix! And I started watching episodes of Dragon’s Den, which is a Canadian  (actually it’s global, but I watch the Canadian version) show, that was copied in the United States and called…

Attack of the Clones: Buying & Selling Counterfeit Products

Clones, counterfeits, bootlegs. I’m sure that we all have an opinion about buying (or marketing) them. Those opinions may be strong, or they may bother on apathetic. However what is harder to determine is if they are right or wrong; or ethical or immoral. This issue came to the forefront of my mind after reading…

Why the POTUS Should Stay Out of the Entertainment Industry

However when I heard that President Obama made a statement that he publicly disagreed with Sony’s decision, I had to roll my eyes. It’s not that I agree or disagree with…

The 5 Biggest Misconceptions About Jamaicans and Jews

Stereotypes and misconceptions are par for the course when you are talking about a small group of people. By being Jewish and having a Jamaican parent, it is very interesting to hear many of the stereotypes that I hear about both Jamaicans and Jews. It is also interesting how similar the misconceptions are between the…

The Media, Not Racism Has Incited Nationwide Protests

I didn’t think that I would be writing about this (“this” being the Grand Jury failing to indict Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown). Originally, I wanted to post something on Facebook. But gauging from the types of responses I was reading on my wall, I could envision myself being attacked from both…

My 1st Month of Vaping

I realize that there are probably a million articles online regarding e-cigarettes and the act of “smoking” (<<<I put that in quotes, because you actually aren’t burning anything) them, which is called vaping. So why add one more to the mix? Well I find that most of the articles are not un-biased, in that they…
