Voting, Misunderstood

This year, fewer than 40% of voting age Americans will actually vote.
A serious glitch in self-marketing, I think.
If you don't vote because you're trying to teach politicians a lesson, you're tragically misguided in your strategy. The very politicians you're trying to send a message to don't want you to vote. Since 1960, voting turnouts in mid-term elections are down significantly, and there's one reason: because of TV advertising.
Political TV advertising is designed to do only one thing: suppress the turnout of the opponent's supporters. If the TV ads can turn you off enough not to vote ("they're all bums") then their strategy has succeeded.
The astonishing thing is that voters haven't figured this out. As the scumminess and nastiness of campaigning and governing has escalated and the flakiness of candidates appears to have escalated as well, we've largely abdicated the high ground and permitted selfish partisans on both sides to hijack the system.
Voting is free. It's fairly fast. It doesn't make you responsible for the outcome, but it sure has an impact on what we have to live with going forward. The only thing that would make it better is free snacks.
Even if you're disgusted, vote. Vote for your least unfavorite choice. But go vote.

National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

As many of you know, September represents National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. As we commemorate the month, we will remember all the children who have lost their lives to the disease, think about all the children who will face life-long side effects from their treatments, rally behind all the children who are still actively fighting the disease, and continue our work to ensure that future generations will never have to battle childhood cancer.

This year alone in the United States over 12,000 children will be diagnosed with childhood cancer and nearly 3,000 of them will not survive. That number represents 3,000 children who will never experience the normal every day joys of life – going to school, hanging out with their friends, or simply being given the opportunity to grow up. Of those 12,000 children diagnosed, none of their lives will ever return to the “normal” that some of us take for granted. These facts are saddening, if children are the future of this country and the world – shouldn’t they be given the opportunity to live long and productive lives?

As we enter September, let’s all take a moment to reflect on the battles we have faced throughout our own lifetime. These battles have no doubt been difficult and challenging, and some of us may have even battled our own cancers. If that is the case, we know what it is like to go through treatments and navigate through the uncertainly or to see our loved ones do the same. Can you imagine feeling that way as a child?

We hope
 that everyone will take a few moments to spread the word about just how many children in the United States are affected by cancer.  I hope that you will share this with your family members, friends, colleagues and even strangers as we work this month to raise awareness of the disease as well as funds to find the cures that all of these children deserve. Septembers profits will all be sent to The Children's Cancer Fund Of America (

Change and its constituents (there are two, and both are a problem)

People who fear they will be hurt by a change speak up immediately, loudly and without regard for the odds or reality.
People who will benefit from a change don't believe it (until it happens), so they sit quietly.
And that's why change in an organization is difficult.

What career should you choose...

      For all the younger people in todays society. 
    Try looking into your hobbies and interests. Many people start out their careers with their hobbies and interests and find a way to get paid for it. Most times students start college with one major and completely change it by the time they're a Sophomore or Junior. What happens is, when your in high school you really aren't exposed to the vast job opportunities in the world and are typically restricted to well known careers such as a fireman, teacher, cop, astronaut, etc. Don't worry, by the time you are in college you will have been exposed to enough out in the world to have a good idea of what you want to do. You can always start out in college with an undecided major or liberal arts major to get a feel for different classes.
