Do we see enough beauty?

Perception

Something to think about….

Washington, DC Metro Station on a cold January morning in 2007. The man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time approximately. 2 thousand people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After 3 minutes a middle aged man noticed there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried to meet his schedule.

4 minutes later:

The violinist received his first dollar: a woman threw the money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk.

6 minutes:

A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again.

10 minutes:

A 3-year old boy stopped but his mother tugged him along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. Every parent,

Spammers never rest

03/04/10 | by yevez | Categories: Computers and the Internet, Global Economy, Society

I am always amazed at the resilience of the internet spammers. They just don’t get it, they never tire out of causing damage to the whole society with the masses of bandwidth that they consume and the time they make others loose.

I receive a few comments per month in this blog that are pure SPAM. The person (or robot script for what I know) writes an meaningless comment like: Thanks for a great post and they stick the address of their web site to try to get link popularity.

Well there’s only one response to that, I’ll keep the comment and remove the URL in case you’d be tempted. On the other hand I’ll be happy to keep the web site’s address related to any RELEVANT comment.

My girl friend wants me to make more money!

03/01/10 | by yevez | Categories: General, Society

I had a grounding talk with my girl friend tonight. Our relationship is less than weak. She told me all the things she doesn’t like about me and the one that stroke me was: She would like me to make more cash so I can take care of her from time to time.

She’s a teacher and she works hard for her money but she still gets a good pay. I’m a small business owner and make minimal revenue. At 51 this is not the best situation to have debts and to not generate a decent income. So we pay our share separately, which I thought was OK
until tonight. In my mind the outcome of feminism was that women wanted to be financially independent. Maybe I was wrong :(

Global Climate Wake-Up

09/18/09 | by yevez | Categories: Environmental concerns, Politics, Society

We all know that the climate changes are becoming an emergency matter, but some of our leaders are still blind to that reality. That’s why the December 09 meeting in Copenhagen is crucial for all of us. There are some citizen organizations that work very hard at making our concerns visible to the world leaders.
