Thought this image (infographic) was worth taking a quick timeout from working on strategies that are helping clients reach more customers through the Internet. For those that have not yet watched the “Social Network” about the amazing explosion of Facebook – the image above highlights for you how significant the participation and connection is between friends, families and cultures online. Really like the quote from editor….
“What really struck me, though, was knowing that the lines didn’t represent coasts or rivers or political borders, but real human relationships. Each line might represent a friendship made while traveling, a family member abroad, or an old college friend pulled away by the various forces of life… When I shared the image with others within Facebook, it resonated with many people. It’s not just a pretty picture, it’s a reaffirmation of the impact we have in connecting people, even across oceans and borders.”

End of year, we have been sharing some great stories around art, music, culture, health, wellness and recently education.

Here were some concepts & notes that I captured from the Film worth sharing (please note that I was writing and taking notes in the dark watching the movie):
Kids are dropping out of School questioning there Reason and Purpose for Living. Manifesting and living into Failure. Winding up in Prison. 68% of Prison Inmates are School Dropouts.
If we invested roughly 8,000 in students to pay for school & private school, we can potentially reduce the dropout Convicts bill of 33,000 per year. That is if education has a direct parallel to crime & prison. READ MORE
Was recently enjoying a long day of travels with Mark Murphy and he was sharing of this amazing story about a guy named “Marwencol” who encountered a horrific accident.
