Subway Sandwich Cartoon

drew_anopenlettertosubway

Drew from lefthandtoons.com has a humorous cartoon about his concerns with how Subway puts cheese on his sandwiches.  If you see this cheese violation at your local Subway please let them know the proper way to put cheese on your sandwich.  :)  I’ll have to open my sandwich and look next time (I’ve never noticed).

If The World Were A Village of 100

earth

If we could reduce the world’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratios remaining the same, the demographics would look something like this:

  • The village would have 60 Asians, 14 Africans, 12 Europeans, 8 Latin Americans, 5 from the USA and Canada, and 1 from the South Pacific
  • 51 would be male, 49 would be female
  • 82 would be non-white; 18 white
  • 67 would be non-Christian; 33 would be Christian
  • 80 would live in substandard housing
  • 67 would be unable to read
  • 50 would be malnourished and 1 dying of starvation
  • 33 would be without access to a safe water supply
  • 39 would lack access to improved sanitation
  • 24 would not have any electricity (And of the 76 that do have electricity, most would only use it for light at night.)
  • 7 people would have access to the Internet
  • 1 would have a college education
  • 1 would have HIV
  • 2 would be near birth; 1 near death would control 32% of the entire world’s wealth; all 5 would be US citizens

Google Webmaster Tools

My Google Webmaster Dashboard

Was looking at Google Webmaster tools (tip from WordCamp) to see how I am ranking for different search terms in Google and was pleased to see I am position 8 for Kevin Rose.  Haha

WordCamp San Francisco 2009

Is anyone going this weekend who follows my blog?  I know my best friend and biggest fan is going with me.  I can’t wait, looks like the event is going to have some great speakers this year.  I think I am most looking forward to hearing Tim Ferriss speak.  As always I’ll take great notes and will have pictures and video after the event to share for those of you who won’t be able to make it.

The Blue School

I learned about The Blue School in May’s Inc. Magazine:

  • “Original blue men Chris Wink, Matt Goldman, and Phil Stanton, together with their wives, Jen Wink, Renee Rolleri, and Jennifer Stanton, conceived the school as an alternative to the New York school scene. “There’s this incredible pressure in Manhattan private schools to get young children into Harvard. Like, at 2,” says Rolleri, whose background is in art therapy and child development. The Blue School, Goldman says, was a response to what was “not happening” in education. “Schools are educating creativity and innovation out of children,” he says, “and sucking the joy out of that experience.”
  • Pre-k and Elementary
  • Only 20 kids admitted per grade
  • School that teaches kids to be kids
  • Studies show if kids choose the curriculum they learn more
  • $27k annual tuition
