Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may...

NFL Predictions 10/11
I’ve been doing a lot of predictive analysis and thought I mine as well try my skill at picking each week’s winning NFL teams. I have no idea how successful it’ll be, but if it works well, I’ll start adding point spreads. Pittsburgh at Tennessee | Winner: Pittsburgh (Blow Out) Oakland at Atlanta | Winner: Atlanta (Blow Out) Cincinnati at Cleveland | Winner: Cincinnati ...
The In Between
The biggest challenge facing the planning industry is the lack of attention to the “in between”. Planners create plans and have tools that allows them to see the arterials, the train tracks, the residential areas, the industrial areas, etc. They know at a very surface level where everything belongs. And they continue to create tools that reinforce this practice. Planners also know how the...

Thinking Outside the Box
Not many people can really think outside the box…so embrace the times and opportunities you have with them. If you are lucky enough to be one of those out of the box thinkers…congratulations. Keep on dreaming and talking and writing everything down. If you are not lucky enough to be one…congratulations on being honest with yourself. If you are a fake, wannabe, self-claimed...

This might be the single best thing to ever come from the Colbert Report…
A great example why Facebook is a steal at $19.95…every analyst out there is judging the product simply on ad-dollars. Huge freakin mistake. This video embodies that. If you think Facebook 5,10,20,30 years from now will only be making revenue from ad dollars then you should just stop investing your money. Period. As for the executives leaving…whatever their next venture is, I can...

It’s also for the best that Charles Barkley wasn’t tested too often — something tells me he might have been kicked off the team for traces of opium from eating too many poppy seed muffins.

Isn’t this a grand fuckin idea. I think what we should probably do is go and split up investment banking from banking, have banks be deposit takers, have banks maybe commerce loans and real estate loans, have banks do something that’s not going to risk the taxpayer dollars, that’s not going to be too big to fail. if they want to hedge what they’re doing in their investments, let them do...

Jason Alexandar recently spoke out about the ownership of automatic guns by normal citizens. His answer has probably been the most rational explanation for why there needs to be tougher regulation on automatic weapons. These weapons are military weapons. They belong in accountable hands, controlled hands and trained hands. They should not be in the hands of private citizens to be used against...
Putnam's awesome follow up to bowling alone →
Over the last 40 years upper-income parents have increased the amount they spend on their kids’ enrichment activities, like tutoring and extra curriculars, by $5,300 a year. The financially stressed lower classes have only been able to increase their investment by $480, adjusted for inflation. This is sad but true…and a real problem. That’s 4,820 more each year…and over the...

Brilliant piece from Roger Ebert. That James Holmes is insane, few may doubt. Our gun laws are also insane, but many refuse to make the connection. The United States is one of few developed nations that accepts the notion of firearms in public hands. In theory, the citizenry needs to defend itself. Not a single person at the Aurora, Colo., theater shot back, but the theory will still be...
