(Re)Watch ‘Bobby’, The 2006 Movie, 48-Years And All That Seems To Have Changed Was Obama!

The FULL MOVIE is on YouTube!


I had seen it in 2006 — when it first came on. It was on DISH this last weekend and I DVRed it and watched it a couple of nights ago.

Wow. Wow. WOW!

It was like a TIME WARP. It could so easily have been June of 2016.

We are still talking about the SAME ISSUES: the DIVIDES — racial, wealth, hispanics-blacks, voter suppression, ‘right to work’, vote-rigging and voting machines.

Scary. IF you are into politics you really should watch this (again).

Makes you THINK — which is always a good thing.

Where would we be, where would the World be, IF just one of the Kennedy brothers had been spared?

The ONLY thing that this movie did not presage was that there would be an Obama exactly 40 years later.

Great movie.

Journey Through Bladder Cancer Treatment By My Former Colleague Patrice Bourgeois Leeds.

Patrice Bourgeois Leeds cancer blog radiation bladder

Click image to access WordPress blog by Patrice Bourgeois Leeds about her journey through cancer treatment.


Patrice and I worked at CASE Communications, in Columbia, Maryland, 31-year ago. Her Dad worked for CASE too — and I worked with him for over a year before Patrice joined the crew. Her Dad, about the same age as my Adoptive Father, was my first mentor in the U.S. and a very good and dependable friend. He and I, I from the Britain and he from the U.S., were part of the original CASE U.S.A management team — CASE, a market-leading U.K. company having bought the U.S. Rixon Corporation to get a foothold in the U.S. Patrice was the Product Manager for Multiplexers. I was the Director of Marketing for Multiplexers. So she controlled my destiny. Her Dad was the Directing Marketing for Distributor Sales. He helped me sell through the ‘channels’ as we called it. So these two, daughter and dad, played a huge hand in my fortunes and income. They never let me down. A rarity at CASE.

 I had lost touch with Patrice over the years, and alas Dad is no longer with us.

Just over a year ago, the unexpected death of two of our other colleagues, Don & Sandy Pyle, in that famous Christmas-tree fire of a multi-million dollar mansion, brought a few of us together — over social media.

I only found out that Patrice had cancer around Christmas. She kept it to herself until she decided she was not going to have the surgery.

She had asked me about doing a blog and I urged her to do so — and, of course, suggested WordPress.

So, we now have a blog.

I am a great believer that stories like this HAVE to be told. It is good for all. Therapeutic to write and inspirational to others. Plus, Patrice can write — and write well.

Patrice has to get better and not get too tired during the treatment because I have twisted her arm to proof my books. She is good with anything to do with words.

So, bookmark her blog. Wish her well. And follow her on her journey.

‘Big Eyes’, The 2014 Movie Is Definitely Worth Watching If You Haven’t Seen It — Interesting, True Story.

by Anura Guruge

Click image to access IMDb.com listing for movie.


Watch the trailer on YouTube.


I was not familiar with this movie — given that I do not follow movie news or tends. Just tend to watch them on TV and occasionally at the cinema — and that, 100% of the time, is for the kids.

Big Eyes” caught my eyes when I was looking through all the ‘new’ movies available this weekend, on Cinemax & Showtime, as part of the DISH free, preview. I subscribe to HBO, so I don’t have to worry about catching movies available on that channel.

I DVRed “Big Eyes” (I think on Friday night) amongst a total of about 14 other movies and all 12 episodes of “Billions”.

“Big Eyes” is the only movie from this batch of recordings that we have watched — and by that I include Teischan (given that it was PG-13 (and we let Teischan watch PG-13s as long as she is with us)).

Good movie. True story. Amazing story. So 1950s and 1960s. Compelling. We liked it.

Humdinger Of An IQ Test — Try It IF You Want To Feel Humbled.

by Anura Guruge


iqtest

Click to access this 40 question IQ Test at “IQ Research”.


This, if it is truly bona fide, is AN IQ Test!

Wow.

I am a veteran of IQ tests and must have done close to a hundred in my days. I recounted in my first “Brain Meditation” book (last years) how IBM made me take 3 IQ Tests, when I was 19, one at 10pm at night and then gave me an unconditional job offer — good for ‘life’. I include that snippet below, BUT I assume you all read it in the book. Right? {SMILE}

This is good — assuming it is NOT bogus.

It starts of EASY PEASY and lulls you into a sense of complacency. Then BANG.

I found this on MarketWatch this morning.

I did the test, this morning, on my pad, while doing my ablutions in the bathroom! I was also in a hurry since I needed to start shoveling. I didn’t go for the complete result profile. Didn’t have time. But, it did say that my results were above average. That might not mean much and with all due modesty “I damn well hope I am still above average”.

But, try it. Forget the score …

Do it just to see the questions, no numbers.

All symbols, all 40 of them.

Enjoy.

Amazon’s ‘Kindle Direct Publishing’ Now Offering Paperback Print Option Undercutting Amazon’s CreateSpace.

by Anura Guruge

Click here to get more information on this from Kindle.


Got the above in an e-mail Wednesday morning.

I was baffled; it made no sense.

Both ‘Kindle Direct Publishing‘ (KDP) and ‘CreateSpace‘ are Amazon companies — though KDP is more tightly integrated with Amazon, e.g., can reach KDP from Amazon.com (usiing same userid/password).

My books are published with BOTH.

‘CreateSpace’ has offered a publish on Kindle option for years — and actually pesters you to do so.

Yes, makes a LOT of sense to combine the two and have just one Amazon publishing company that did BOTH paperbacks and eBooks, i.e., Kindle.

But, in this instance KDP appears to be competing head-on with CS and even telling me to move my paperbacks from CS to KDP.

Does not make sense.

I went to CS to see if I can find a statement. I couldn’t. So I have e-mailed them.

I will keep you posted. Very confusing.

I had noticed that CS since September had been acting jittery. This may have been the cause.
