Work Smarter, Not Harder

January 9, 2018

Work smarter, not work harder, says the motto.

My response, yes. Too often people advise others that hard work is enough. But that does not always work.

Here is an example: you go to a bank and ask for free money. They say no. Not working hard enough! You have to try one hundred, or one thousands banks!

This is a problem I see in all the arts. Musicians, writers, filmmakers, artists, etc., all not seeing that how much you work won’t change a system that has become unfair to so many.

Corporations, through media consolidation, have the upper hand in all these industries, and they push profit over quality. Work hard, and work smart. Rebel against the system or you are just asking banks for free money.

Many seem to settle for all the arts to be ruined because of business demands for profit. And they allow their favorite musicians, writers, artists, filmmakers to be marginalized out of fair reviews and careers. For some reason, too many now think that if THEY can search out and find an elusive great talent, that is enough. It is not.

Virtually every talented musician, painter, writer, filmmaker, etc that you have to search for, is making minimum wage. Great talent should be the most celebrated, not the most marginalized.

The history of art has never been like this before. The best art has always been the most talked about, written about, and reviewed. The entire art world is upside down. That is why the art revolution to change it.

Buying the Government; Net Neutrality and a New Paradigm

December 16, 2017

Congress took 101 million in donations from the Internet Service Providers or ISP industry. How much did your lawmaker get? Find out here.

Who will control the government, people or corporations . No person wanted to get rid of net neutrality, only corporations. Why is the government of the people turning it’s back on the people who have spoken?

This bares repeating:

Till Mickey Mouse is in the Public Domain, corporations control the government. Disney tells the government to jump and the government says how high Mickey?

We have three political parties, the Republican Corporate Party, the Democratic Corporate Party, and all the rest of us that don’t have lobbyists.

The paradigm is shifting from conservative versus liberal to corporations versus people.

Day after day it’s becoming more and more clear The paradigm is shifting from conservative versus liberal to corporations versus people and democracy. Both are fighting for control of the government. Corporations usually win.

Must Make Profits at All Costs !!!

Corporations Don’t Have to Maximize Profits / NYT article.

These five quotes are from Lynn Stout, professor of corporate and business law at Cornell Law School. Updated April 16, 2015, 6:46 AM

There is a common belief that corporate directors have a legal duty to maximize corporate profits and “shareholder value” — even if this means skirting ethical rules, damaging the environment or harming employees. But this belief is utterly false …

Serving shareholders’ “best interests” is not the same thing as either maximizing profits, or maximizing shareholder value. …

The business judgment rule gives directors protection from judicial second-guessing about how to best serve their companies and shareholders….

… the business judgment rule gives directors nearly absolute protection from judicial second-guessing about how to best serve the company and its shareholders…

In other words, it is activist hedge funds and modern executive compensation practices — not corporate law — that drive so many of today’s public companies to myopically focus on short-term earnings; cut back on investment and innovation; mistreat their employees, customers and communities; and indulge in reckless, irresponsible and environmentally destructive behaviors.

Holding Genes Passes Genes

December 8, 2017

Holding Genes, Passes Genes!

This article, “Holding Infants – or not – can leave traces on their genes,” supports an idea I’ve had called “Carrying the Baby.”

My sci-fi novel, “Writings in Science a History of the Future” suggests that a key reason for the development of humans brains are ‘carrying the baby.”

First humans (hominids) walked upright. This led to their hands free – not only for war (most scientists are men) – but for carrying the baby.

This led to a stronger mother child bond, that I suggest supported everything from language development, to human intelligence.

Read the article, then read my sci-fi novel, perhaps the biggest ever written. Now available at all major streaming book sites.
