It is like a ritual for the speakers to advise the graduating class during the season of college commencement. Two men, who disagree on almost every issue penned down their word of advice on the Wall Street Journal. In the op-ed, both Michael Bloomberg, who is the City Mayor and Charles Koch, the top Republican financier called on all the colleges across the United States to respect the speech principles.
The two men advised colleges to uphold the principles of free speech. Some ideas that are considered controversial play an integral role in the improvement of college education and bettering the life of human beings. They noted that most colleges across America did not approve invitations from controversial speakers. They have sanctioned all the activities that are likely to trigger freethinking within the colleges. These sanctions are creating a climate that hinders true learning, openness, and debate.
The colleges have developed a habit of shielding students from ideas considered controversial or could cause discomfort within the school. Intolerance to controversial ideas threatens higher education’s future, which in turn hinders the efforts of establishing a democratic society.

A few years ago Andy Wirth didn’t know if he would live to see another day. On a beautiful fall day in October of 2013, Wirth and a couple of friends went skydiving. This is something Andy Wirth loved to do and had done many, many times throughout his life. This day however was a bit different – http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=36030954&privcapId=7911768.
As he was landing he realized he was going to have to land in a vineyard. This of course is not the ideal place to land when you are skydiving. But unfortunately he had no other choice. As he was making his final maneuvers to land, Wirth’s arm was taken off by a pole that was holding up the vines.
According to TahoeTopia, Andy Wirth quickly realized things weren’t looking good. The good news is he had experience with trauma in remote areas after working as a backcountry ranger many years prior. He knew the most important thing to do was stay calm so his body wouldn’t go into shock.
Wirth was in the vineyard for 15 minutes before being rescued and taken to the nearest medical facility for further treatment.
Wirth spent 3 months in the hospital and was able to go home with his arm back. To say thats a miracle is an understatement. His desire to live should be a testament to us all.

VTA Publications writes that every day is different and that’s a fact. Each day is so different that literally anything new and different could happen. But does anything that different ever happen? Well, the sad truth is it used to but nothing that new and exciting seems to ever happen much anymore. When I was a young boy, I vividly remember waiting for each new day. Every day was like Christmas to me because nothing was ever the same and there was always something new always happening. But all that newness and excitement seemed to stop at some point. It’s not that way anymore though and it’s not just me, it’s like that with just about everybody. I think it all stopped when I was ushered into life as an adult. Think about your life as an adult now. You get up, you eat breakfast or something that you pass off as eating breakfast, and for most of us, we then head to some job we probably wouldn’t miss if the building it was housed in burned to the ground. When I was a kid I always thought that being an adult would be such an adventure. But to many people, if not most people, it’s turned into a kind of a mindless brain numbing waste of time. There’s nothing new or exciting in being an adult and it’s not because there’s nothing new and exciting to do or learn or read about. It’s just that many of us have turned our brains off. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about and how life could be. Prince just died recently. There was a man who how to live life. He was constantly creating, constantly pushing himself to new heights. Every day was an adventure for him. Can’t you be that way too? You could if you wanted to.
I want to get back to my life as a child for a minute to show you how different it was than my life as an “Adult.” One of the things I remember vividly as a kid was going to grade school. Everything I learned there was new and amazing and then there were the school lunches. Lunch was exciting because I was introduced to foods that I never saw at home. It was like being on an ocean cruise. It was truly a gourmet experience. But what about today? The operative thing today seems to don’t learn anything, don’t talk with real people, and for goodness sake don’t ask questions. If you find that hard to believe, take a stab at how uninformed most people are today. Ask them a simple question. How bout this one, who won World War II, better yet who were the axis powers in WWII. You’ll be surprised at how many people won’t have a clue what you’re talking about much less what the answers are.
They don’t know any of this because they’re too busy, playing video games, or talking and texting someone about some useless piece of information on their cell phone. But life isn’t at all like that. Life is, in fact, special, wonderful, and a great gift and you’re just plain stupid if you squander it. So get up and go out and do something creative, build something new, learn something amazing, be good and be creative and don’t just sit around collecting callouses.

Life is too short to have boring hair. Wen is a cleansing conditioner living up to this standard. Their shampoo is a wonderful conglomeration of 3 things in one. It is a shampoo, a conditioner and a hair treatment. It is formulated for all hair types and comes in different scents. The sephora fig version is a popular one because it provides extra moisture and gives the hair a sought after sheen.
One girl in particular wanted to test out this infamous product and she embarked on a 7 day journey documented on Bustle, to see if the results held true. Emily’s first day started off with skepticism. She was using double or more the amount of WEN than she normally used. Her first day results were noticeable. Her hair felt thicker, less hair fell out when she showered and after blowdrying she noticed a lot more sheen and bounce.
By day three Emily noticed her hair was a little bit greasy. She followed the process again and noticed that her was flatter than usual. She was okay with that result and was impressed at how healthy and shiny her hair looked. On day five she tried a different look and decided to curl her hair after washing and rinsing it with Wen. She found out that after she curled her hair, the waves fell a little more quickly but it still looked and felt amazing.
By day seven she continued to have consistent results. She noticed that WEN is a product that has to be used daily to have great results. Consistency is key. One’s hair suffers in between washes. When using the product she noted that her hair was healthier, manageable, shinier and looked great. It is not for the lazy. Staying on routine is the key to success.
A recent article appears online about a local attorney launching a go fund me page for stray animals. On further review of the article, you will find out that Ross Abelow is starting the campaign for local animal shelters. He is a New York attorney that completed law school in New York. He later took a job working in family and corporate law. Ross is listed on the Lawyer lighthouse listing for attorneys in New York. After more research of the article, you will learn that Abelow is launching his campaign as a community volunteer project. He wants to help the hundreds of dogs and cats around the city that have no home.
He or she may have been the one no one wanted or he may have run off from the pact. After finding himself on the streets of New York, the homeless dog will have to learn how to stay warm. No longer is his mom around to keep him warm by cuddling up with him. NO longer is the other pups around to roll up in a ball with him. He is all alone. The big city and the cold winds is his life now. The lonely pup finds a dirty back alley where it seems to be safe from cars. He searches the ground for any piece of food. He finds a left over piece of bread and calls this dinner. Now the pup needs to get warm so he crawls up behind some busted out trashy door. He rolls up in a ball and closes his eyes.
This is the life of the stray. Hopeless and sad, these animals either die of cold and starvation or they end up at a shelter. The lucky ones get a chance in a shelter but most shelters are too full to accommodate. Ross is hoping to help by raising money through a go fund me page for shelters. All proceeds will help the animal shelters provide more relief for these animals. Ross Abelow knows that it takes one person to start something. this is why he is starting the campaign. He hopes to raise the $5000. dollars necessary to put a dent in the homeless dog and cat problems in New York. Check out the go fund me page for Ross Abelow to see how you can help.
