My Complete Experience and Review of Google Glass

I’ve never referred to myself as a “techie” or a “tech-whiz” but I understand electronics. Having had a career working avionics on today’s top fighter jets, I have a very balanced and astute understanding of technologies of all sorts. An interest in technology? Yes, I have a pretty health appetite for technology that offers solutions to today’s problems, that help people live better, that offer connectivity, simplicity, and just do things better. However, I am not a guru of any one brand – I am loyal to the best solutions only. In addition to this, I have a level understanding of social media. I do not pretend to be an expert, because am not. I have 113 Twitter followers because am not aggressive in that, but I am good with social media for institutions. Currently, I am the Social Media Director for Holy Apostles College and Seminary and also the same for Patrick Madrid’s Envoy Institute. Both have successful media platforms and are growing through the saturated world of social media. In addition to my aeronautics education, I hold an MBA, and understand quite well marketing and business development and acquisition. That said, I think I have the qualifications necessary to give a good review of my experience with Google Glass. My Experience I was anticipating Glass quite well. I had the same questions everyone else did: How do they feel? What do you see?...

Secrets to a Happy Sexuality

First, before anything, Journey. I suggest Faithfully. Okay, now that the serious stuff is out of the way… Here are some ways you can enjoy your sexual lifestyle with your spouse, God’s plan in mind. Be Chaste It cannot be said enough times that fidelity and chastity remain the biggest contributors to a better sex life, active or not. Because sin stains you, you do not want to go into the marriage act as such. It would be like rolling around in the mud with pigs and then going to a wedding banquet. Nobody would do that. Likewise, when you’re moral life is in line with God’s will for you, you will benefit. This means stop masturbating, stop looking twice at women in yoga pants, refrain from running the “highlight reel” in your mind. As Matt Fradd says in his talk Taking Down Goliath, “Starve the summo!” That summo sized sexual addiction you wrestle will diminish if you starve it. Not Frequency The pleasure you derive from sex is due to its quality, not its quantity. Married couples have sex some 1000-3000 times in their first few years. Though, like a great painter who practices and practices until he gets his novel technique perfected, he isn’t an artist until he goes from enthusiast to artist. Sex is no different. The more you do it, yes it will be good, but not as...

Is Harvard’s President Faust Saying Enough?

By now you’ve heard about the Harvard University affiliated group that was planning to reenact a Black Mass. I have stayed relatively quiet about it, just as I do most things, waiting until all the facts are visible and then making an informed opinion on the matter. Boy, how many arrows in history could have been saved should more people have that approach to controversy. The timeline has played out interestingly since the news made Catholic headlines. The group was “reenacting” a Black Mass, not performing one. They did not plan to desecrate a consecrated host, and, as required for a Black Mass, were not going to orgy in its presence. But today the Harvard President, Drew Faust, has issued a statement. The president calls the event “abhorrent”, because “it represents a fundamental affront to the values of inclusion, belonging and mutual respect that must define our community.” Really? It’s not abhorrent because it would mock and desecrate the body, blood, soul and divinity of the Lord of the universe? To this president, it’s abhorrent cause it’s not inclusive. The statement is concluded with: Nevertheless, consistent with the University’s commitment to free expression, including expression that may deeply offend us, the decision to proceed is and will remain theirs. At the same time, we will vigorously protect the right of others to respond—and to address offensive expression with expression of their own. I plan to attend...

Take This Quiz to See What Quiz You Should Take!

Have you taken one of those online tests to see what color you are, what band you are, what state you should live in, or what cartoon character you are? I already know what cartoon I am: Tommy Pickles, but that wasn’t on the list. Therefore, the list is junk. Okay, they are pretty fun but the socio-analyst in me is about to make an appearance. Seriously though, am I the only one who is beginning to feel bothered by the growing frequency and popularity of these? Harmless? Let’s think about these for a minute. First, lets look at the ingredients for...
