Tough-minded math teacher Jim O'Connor has an alter ego his students never knew about.

His Students Thought They Knew Jim O’Connor…

Jim O’Connor is a hard-nosed math teacher at St. Francis School near Los Angeles; not what his students would call “warm and fuzzy.” But watch this inspiring video as his students find out about  his alter ego, who volunteers at a local children’s hospital several days a week to comfort babies, with love and affection. Pretty amazing.

Is Democracy Dying In The United States?

Let’s face it, either a majority of today’s elected leaders in Washington D.C. are Anti-Democracy, or an immoral minority is strong-arming the rest (with the US Press Corps as a party to it all) to move the United States away from the individual freedoms that our founding fathers delivered, risking everything in doing so.

Peace doves were released in the Vatican this week, after a prayer by Pope Francis for peace in the Ukraine. Children accompanying Pope Francis set the doves free before a massive gathering of the faithful in St. Peter’s Square (or as I like to call it, Saint Peter’s Circle).

“I Want To Be a Democrat.”

The Only Solution: Decommission The IRS

It’s time to decommission the IRS. Sink the rusty old ship, before it sinks us.

On February 2nd, before the Superbowl, Barack Obama was interviewed by Fox’s Bill O’Reilly. Among other questions, Obama was asked whether there is any corruption going on inside the IRS. President Obama infamously answered “not a smidgeon of corruption.”

Was he being fetecious? Sarcastic? Arrogant? The President of the United States of America couldn’t have been less presidential, in front of  about one third of the world’s population. I’m sure the IRS wasn’t appreciative of that kind of “support” either.

Coca-Cola’s Own Weight Problem Won’t Go Away.

Coca-Cola’s recent ad campaign is trending on Facebook, Twitter and other social media, and it’s no wonder why. The mixing of “It’s the real thing” campaign of the 1970s resonates in their new series of messages, which get intertwined with political messages, written in the tone of “perfect harmony;” but they hit on divisive issues, sparking controversy.  The backlash sure looks pre-meditated. It sure looks like they’re …

The New Face of Microsoft: Meet CEO Satya Nadella

The New Face of Microsoft: New CEO Satya Nadella
Today, Microsoft’s board of directors announced its selection for CEO, taking over for Steve Ballmer, who announced his retirement last year. Microsoft named Satya Nadella as CEO. The appointment is effective immediately. Nadella previously held the position of Executive Vice President of Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise group.

Given Nadella’s long history with Microsoft, coming from the enterprise-end, and close working relationship with current and past leadership, one would be hard-pressed to predict any immanent changes in strategy, but we’ll keep ya posted. Meanwhile, a bit more background on the new CEO…
