[VIDEO] Caine’s Arcade: An Inspirational Story About a Boy and His Arcade

caines_arcade_smile1-670x370

Caine Monroy is a 9-year-old boy who wanted an arcade, and instead of waiting for it to come to him, he built it… from cardboard. His dad has a used auto parts store in East LA and has provided the space that Caine needs to run his arcade. For awhile he had few customers, but since Nirvan came into his life, everything has changed. This young man is smart, creative, eager, motivated, and very hard-working. It is so nice to see someone recognize this boy for what he’s accomplished and shared it with the world who can also appreciate all of his effort.

If you want to support Caine and donate to his scholarship fund, please do so HERE. The smart young man has already raised $28,229 and Nirvan is hoping he will reach $100,000.

[VIDEO] Golden Retriever Saves Her Puppy From Drowning

Screen shot 2012-04-10 at 10.29.37 AM

Obviously there has been a lot of controversy surrounding this video. Many people are upset that the person filming is not trying to help save the puppy, while others are saying it’s a perfectly humane way to train your dog to rescue. I think the owner figured that the pup still had its head above water and was hanging on to the edge, and clearly the mother figured out how to get the pup from there.

Finally! Study Confirms Homophobes Are Actually Damaged, Closeted Homosexuals

question-2574689

Researchers from the University of Rochester, the University of Essex, England, and the University of California Santa Barbara have published the results of a study confirming that homophobes are actually deeply closeted homosexuals themselves. This is something that almost any gay person would agree with, and now that the research has been done, I’m happy to admit that I was right. <—always happy to admit this :)

Homophobia is more pronounced in individuals with an unacknowledged attraction to the same sex and who grew up with authoritarian parents who forbade such desires, a series of psychology studies demonstrates.

“Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves,” explains Netta Weinstein, a lecturer at the University of Essex and the study’s lead author.

“In many cases these are people who are at war with themselves and they are turning this internal conflict outward,” adds co-author Richard Ryan, professor of psychology at the University of Rochester who helped direct the research.

There were four different studies that were done and the entire report from ScienceDaily is actually rather revealing and interesting. Again, something that has been assumed by many for a while, but now we have science on our side to explain that this is the truth. While I should be happy, I’m actually rather disturbed by these findings. All this means is that people are so ashamed of who they are that they try to mask their identity by abusing those who have had a similar path but chose to accept who they were as opposed to hiding this. Damaged, closeted homosexuals hating those who were able to overcome hate and prejudice.

[VIDEO] Snoop Dogg’s ‘Rolling Words’: Smokable Book

RollingWords_Book

Snoop Dogg has released this video for ‘Rolling Words’ to help promote his own line of King Size Rolling Papers created by San Francisco agency Pereira & O’Dell. Right now, the book is only being offered for elite distribution (whatever the hell that means), but they are considering a limited edition version as well, to be sold online.

If you’re going to Coachella though, you may get the opportunity to sample the papers before the release of the book. So, be sure to look for the posters (photo example below) that will have some of the samples attached and are free for music concert guests to detach on their own. In the meantime, I’ll be anxiously waiting to get my hands on my very own copy of ‘Rolling Words’… if and when it becomes available.

[VIDEO] Google’s ‘Project Glass’ Demo

googleglasses-courtesy1

This is the first look at Google’s ‘Project Glass’ which would implement a contemporary eyewear that also functions as a full social media connection. Here, you see what Google hopes the glasses will be implemented into the daily lives of those who use them. If the functionality is as fluid as this video makes it seem, I will most certainly be purchasing a pair of these…without a doubt. Luckily, it is assumed that they will be premiering later this year, well, in beta form, that is.

People who’ve actually seen the glasses told  The New York Times that they will create a new layer for the Internet where companies can stream digital advertising possibly even layered over competitors’ real world ads. The Times also speculated how facial recognition may play a role in the glasses’ core functions, matching peoples’ faces with social network profiles for instant connections between new acquaintances.

Making these glasses a reality will most certainly give Apple someone to compete with and bring most of society into a new age, simliar to that of the cartoon, ‘The Jetsons‘. In fact, this is far beyond what I could have imagined being the reality while I was alive, but it is 100%, something I am excited to incorporate into my life. While technology can inhibit us, it can also give us advantages and simplicity that we couldn’t have dreamt of obtaining. Rather than encouraging laziness by allowing us to sit at home on the computer and removing the idea of detaching from social situations to communicate via a mobile device , it provides a more seamless connection to the internet that gets people out and about and doing things they may have forgotten they enjoyed, during the sitting social media age.

[VIDEO] 3-D Printing: A Full Functioning Wrench Is Printed From Powder and Binding Ink

Screen shot 2012-03-20 at 3.19.04 PM

I remember back in the day when I was looking forward to chatting face to face through phones; Which we have already made possible. Now, scientists are taking technology another step further into the future by developing a 3-D Printer that can form objects that are sturdy, durable and fully functioning. This all took place at NASA’s tool lab where they were trying to find a way to help the men and women in space be able to replicate tools that they might need if something were to happen to the ones in space.

This is amazing and almost unbelievable. The amount of though, hard-work and dedication that goes into these technological advances is rather impressive. It’s great to see that people haven’t just stayed content with what we have and have urged themselves to find more ways to improve our way of life, as well as our exploration of the universe we live in (including much more than just that).

Can I have your attention please.
Can I have your attention please.
Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up.
I repeat. Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up.
We’re gonna have a problem here.
Y’all act like you haven’t seen a Mormon before.
Jaws down on the floor.
I’m not concerned about the very poor.
Got it wrong. Sorry. That’s not what I meant.
I want every American to be in the top one percent.
I’m really named Willard. That’s my first name.
I’m not looking for a colony on the moon. Just for someone to blame.
I like being able to fire people. 
“I’m Newt Gingrich.” You’re fired. 
“I’m Rick Santorum and I’m….” Fired
Boom. Boom. Boom.
“Conservative women love Mitt Romney.” And I love cars and I love lakes.
I’m running or office for Pete’s sake.
With regards to abortion. Pro-life? Pro-choice?
I firmly believe in my own singing voice.

For purple mountains’ majesty, above the fruited plain.
“Where were we at John?”

Uh… with regards to abortion… uh…. 
You can choose your own adventure.
It’s a Republican dementia.
And I’m more concerned about the banks: they’re unable to lend.
Corporations are people my friend.
My dog is on the roof. My dog is on the roof.
Who let the dogs out? Who? Who?
Understand I’m an exception. The Obama contraception.
Not a vulture, I’m an eagle.
Look I’m gonna get my lawn cut by illegals.
There will be an influx. Hispanic voters in trucks.
Look, if you don’t believe, I’ll tell you what, ten thousand bucks?
Well, I made a lot of money matter of factually.
I drive a couple of Cadillacs actually.
I have emotion and passion. That’s a joke for the record.
But if you want the soul of America restored,
Come on board. Take your fair share and every
Mormon wave your underwear.
Sing the chorus, papa bear.

I’m Mitt Romney. Yes, I’m the real Romney.
All the other Mitt Romneys are just mass debating.
So would the real Mitt Romney please stand up, please stand up, please stand up.

I’m Mitt Romney. Yes, I’m the real Romney.
All the other Mitt Romneys are just mass debating.
So would the real Mitt Romney please stand up, please stand up, please stand up.
