How can you not like Run DMC?

And, athletic, albeit un-ballerina-like dancing?

Just watch this video. Do it!  It starts out great, and then gets better and better. I’ll swear to God that it’s worth your time:

…just so you know… It’s Like That is/ was a fan-fave Run DMC, certifiable hit.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

I get great questions from my reader.

Sometimes I come up with a few of my own.

Why don’t cell carriers provide rollover megabytes?

We pay for data, but don’t always use it each month.

Think in terms of the way AT&T offers “rollover minutes.” So… Why not data, as well? If it’s a good idea for minutes, why not for data?

Maybe the answer includes the fact that AT&T does not offer unlimited data plans – like Sprint. Another reason why I switched. But, behavior like this, on the part of AT&T is driven, in part, by their current relationship with Apple.

This questions exposes yet another nonsensical greed tactic by the, or a, cellular service provider companies.

I’ve became more than fed-up with certain service providers that, well, don’t.

I always (always) do what I say. And, then some. In fact, I (cliche alert) really do try to perform well beyond my promise. However, with that said, I’ll pause and note, here, that I’m always very careful when I promise anything. And, I certainly choose my words carefully.

The simplest reason why I’m going on about this, today, is the guy that built the previous version of one of my business websites has side-stepped his part of a deal in the form of maintenance. And, in some respects he actually attempted to hold my business website, and it’s content hostage.

I really take it personal when people let me down in any form or fashion.

On the other hand, I’ve decided to “hitch up my drawers” and be part of my own solution. Thusly, I’ve complained, and now have done something positive about the problem.

I’m willing to call this one a victory, of sorts.

So… Here is the result: www.briancorkhumancapital.com. This is not an elegant design. But, it’s unique (enough) and very different from other websites of professionals (less inspired, to be sure) like myself that recruit and coach on the business side of things.  And, the format (blog-oriented) will force my hand in subjecting offering my readers relatable thought leadership because I am, supposedly, a subject-matter-expertise around people in business and best practices.

By all means, add me to your RSS feed.

most people don’t work-out.

I do. but, then, I have always (always) referred to is as “training”.

I have to always (always) do some form of training, daily.

I’m training for something, perhaps uncertain. I just need to be ready.

last night, after a very long, and productive day, I only had time for one set.

so, I did a super-set

push-ups to utter failure (287), followed immediately (straight away) by pull-ups (27) to failure. then suspended knee-raises, not to failure (35).

I was winded, and resonably content.

today, on the way home,  I’ll run at North park on the turf field.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

And, I do keep my socks on. Socks mean business.

All you can do is HOWL with the sheer genius of this. When you’re not “a bit sleepy” you simply must tell your collective “business” partners about business socks – and how amazingly funny this is.

Do it!

Peace be to my Brothers and sisters.

We’ve certainly taken things from the British. This obviously includes a lot of real estate.

However, a process we need to take as an example from our English brothers is their collective approach to the process of litigation within the court system. In Great Britain, if a person or organization sues another and loses they are responsible for paying all related fees and expenses. Obviously this makes the aggressor think twice before they take action. Following this example would help simplify our own court system by reducing the number of frivolous cases that currently make the judicial system a blunt-edged weapon. Who knows, fairness and reason might even prevail minus avarice and greed – driven by temptation.

A good example for the need to evaluate such a change is the story of the woman (I can’t bring myself to write “lady) in Sacramento, California, that is apparently suing Mcdonalds because her kids make her take them there for kids meals – because of the toys. She wants McDonalds to stop including toys in the kids meals. And, she expects McDonalds to pay her a lot of money because:

a. She is an idiot.

b. She is a moron.

c. She is greedy.

d. She is unemployed.

e. Probably over weight and generally undisciplined.

f. Thinks Boston Market is upscale dining.

g. All of the above and soooo many more things the reflect what is completely stupid in this country.

Whether this might be an Urban Myth or not, is immaterial. Other examples exist. In any event, this does not have to make sense. It can’t. The defiance of logic (and, for nuance, the absence of reason) is only matched by the clear drive of greed and lack of class.

It’s bad enough she is a moron and abuses the judicial process. But, she’s aided and abetted in doing so by a lawyer.

Other topics I’ll touch on might include: the flat tax, consumption tax, and my emerging theories around college scholarships based on a play-off system.

My thinking is simply along the lines of fairness and equity. So, feel free to try and debate me. Do it!

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

“ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END” – There is an end to everything, to good things as well. The proverb dates back to about 1374 (Chaucer). First attested in the United States around 1680. The word ‘good’ was added much later. ‘Everything has an end’ and ‘Everything comes to an end’ are variants of the proverb.

Also…

In the end, we are undone, perhaps in only our current form through treachery, deceit and selfishness – all qualities that are, ironically, so un-Shockers Nation-like.

As one of our parents so aptly pointed out… Perhaps they, my erstwhile hearty and ferocious Shockers, have become accustomed to the unique experience and take it for granted (this includes parents). Now, they must drink from another cup and make that their comparison.

what’s all this about?

I can’t explain what that damn tree means - or, if it might stand for something.

However, here I do discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman.

about this particular Theme:

I'll warn you now that Tarski is theme of this blog created by Benedict Eastaugh and Chris Sternal-Johnson. It is named for the logician Alfred Tarski. I'll recommend his papers ‘The Concept of Truth in Formalized Languages’ and ‘On the Concept of Logical Consequence’, both of which can be found in the collection Logic, Semantics, Metamathematics.
