Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Is your job awesome? Or do you daydream about another position that would fulfill your childhood wishes? Do you ever dream of a fantasy job like being a rock star or professional sports icon?  How marvelous would it be to have the responsibility of caring for a tropical island or testing water slides? How about something a bit more realistic like designing and playing video games all day? Or maybe your vision features owning an ice cream shop and being able to consume as much of this summer delight as you desire.  Perhaps you make-believe you are a premiere chef in a 5-star restaurant.

Streaming Your Workout

According to a recent story on “Good Morning America,” more and more people today are staying home and streaming their workouts on YouTube instead of trotting off to the gym or yoga studio.  Definitely closer and far less expensive, YouTube channel workouts may be neoteric but they’re not always prudent.  Just because a video cracks a million hits, doesn’t, necessarily, mean its star ever cracked a Kinesiology textbook. And, while they say you can’t judge a book by its cover.  Similarly, you can’t judge a trainer by his torso.  Make sure that any YouTube coach comes with credentials.

Earth Day 2015!

A day of loving our planet occurs on April 22nd…just around the corner from now.  What? You didn’t recall? Well it’s time to rejoice for the annual international Earth Day celebration! This momentous day was initiated in 1970 when tree hugging was considered to be slightly insane and constituted bizarre behavior.  Forty-five years ago it simply was not fashionable to engage in eco-friendly actions to shield our earth from our selfish environmental habits.

No one wants to stifle his energetic sense of discovery, but some boundaries are becoming necessary.  The primary focus of this little tyke is to locate and play with the band new Smartphone Shelby procured from Verizon. She couldn’t resist this new electronic masterpiece.  She was actually paid by Verizon to recycle her previous phone when she purchased her new mobile device.  Good for the environment, good for the budget.

Lists are Not Just for David Letterman

Janie always recognized that she would be a wedding planner.  She absolutely thrives on organizing people, events, kitchen cabinets, toys, office supplies, recipes, laundry, shoes and just about anything that will sit still long enough for her to categorize. And Janie loves lists. Most of all, she loves crossing out completed items from her lists.  She treasures her lists as if they were her children (which also appeared on one of her “to do” lists several years ago).  When you ask her why she loves lists, she has a list of her top 10 reasons: 1.

Stay Fashionable in Any Climate

The Northeastern part of the country has been lambasted this year with unprecedented snowfalls and brobdingnagian storms.  Meteorologists are purloining more TV time than Kanye West at a Grammy podium.  “Will it EVER end?” Scream the folks out east.  Meanwhile record breaking heat and drought are swallowing California.  Normal circadian rhythms?  Perhaps.  Global warming?  Maybe.  But whatever the cause, people are talking about it.  And, while the weather may normally be the thing of superfluous small talk at social gatherings, this confabulation is tinged with desperation.

Use It or Else

Today’s mobile communication would have been viewed as just a fantasy five years ago.  Inventions continually alter the way we contact each other and it is certain that the future will deliver revolutionary inventions.  Advances in wireless technology are fueling a wave of innovation that connects people, places and things in meaningful new ways. To expedite these untapped discoveries, Verizon has implemented “innovation centers” to change the way we live, work and play. It is in these futuristic environments that visionary concepts are continually being pioneered at Verizon.
