“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

iDoctor: The Future of Healthcare

How much time does one spend at the doctor?  I'm going to say a good amount of time.  But the real question is - how much do you end up spending?  For many Americans a simple test can cost upwards of $800.00 according the video you're about to see.   Imagine taking a urine, saliva, blood, and EKG test from the comfort of your own home? It's possible, and according to one of the top cardiologist in the country, it will.

"Why do we have people being treated like cattle heard?  That's waste! And billions of dollars that's being wasted each year for screening, and the wrong drugs, and the wrong everything - it's outstanding! And we just can't go on like this." - Dr. Eric Topol

The next step in the evolution of technology will be bio technology, where the machine will not be separate from the body, but together. Where our cell phones and credit cards will be in our ears and fingers. Where nano technology will be stored permanently in our bodies, locating and fixing problems like injuries and cancer throughout our lives. We will live longer and be healthier, but in the end is that such a good thing? Were we made to be immortal or to one day die? Will Steve Jobs be one day know as the father of modern medicine? Only time will tell, and as long as global warming doesn't kill us all first.
