Big problems: kids, the NCAA, and greed
I am writing this blog to vent a little. One of my favorite men Jim Tressel was nailed to the proverbial cross yesterday. This makes me both angry and worried about the future of college athletics. I was a hard worker that played 3 sports in high school. I was never a star or someone that was going to get a full ride to play ball at a major college. Most of my friends and I played for the love...

Cleveland Sports Fan
People of Cleveland…its time for you to get over the Lebron thing…seriously. I know that some of you are still not over it, but if you would have told me a year ago that Cleveland fans would be cheering for the Celtics and Bulls in back to back series I wouldn’t have believed it. Instead of focusing on hating Lebron why don’t you try getting behind the tribe. Get out to...

futuramb: But from which industries will the leading providers of banking services to the hitherto unbanked emerge? And for the ‘natural’ providers of banking services, that is the banks themselves, is mobile an opportunity that will generate new revenue streams in new markets? Or is it a threat? Is it a disruptive technology that could unseat them and make way for more agile players with a...

theatlantic: Suppose we’re classifying the controversial Bush administration “harsh interrogation” practices at Guantanamo as “torture.” Now: what if that torture led to the U.S. finding Osama bin Laden and taking him out of the picture forever? Given the news that the crucial information on bin Laden’s courier—the man who unwittingly led the U.S. to bin Laden’s compound—came from Guantanamo...

Golfing with Dad
The older I get the more I value the simple things in life. This morning is one of those moments. Playing golf early on a Sunday with my father. Its more than chasing the little ball around. Spend some time with your father…whether your golfing or not. He deserves it.

Good for Steve Jobs
So I was scrolling through my twitter feed and couldn’t help but notice the tagline: Apple’s profits beat out Microsoft for the first time in 20 years. To me Jobs is a greater success story. As Illustrated in ” The Pirates Of Silicon Valley ” Gates took advantage of Jobs and Jobs fell directly on his face before bringing Apple and himself out of some bad times. I...
Spending time with my son
There is nothing better than waking up in the morning…as early as it may be and getting to spend the entire day with your son. For me being a father was always the joy of my life, but the older my son gets the more I value our time together. Not to say that tots and babies are a mothers job, but I think fathers can really excell ( especially with there sons ) the older they get. Coaching my...

mattlehrer: roelofbotha: Confirmation bias is a tendency for people to favor information that confirms their preconceptions regardless of whether the information is true. Very true although not just an online problem. People tend to stick to their favorite sources (Fox News vs MSNBC, NYT Op Ed vs WSJ Op Ed, church as a social hub vs elsewhere, etc.) more and more both online and off.
