collision segment1Watch out for Collision!! Collision Conference, that is, being held in New Orleans, this May.

That's my take attending the show last year. Collision Conference is where tech collides with business and opportunities.  And I must say, it just might even be better, this time coming.

collision stellyOver the past few decades, New Orleans has received the tag as a great place to visit anytime, but especially, during the Spring.  For one, the weather is generally mild, while the food and the entertainment remain mostly “hot”.  Then, of course, there’s the festivals—the world renown New Orleans Jazz and heritage Festival and now, the French Quarter Festival.

 

topsOne of the recurring themes over the past few years of Louisiana budget battles, has been--why not consolidate the Universities to save money?

The argument goes--Louisiana has more universities and colleges than larger states, yet, we get less return for our dollars, therefore, should don't we consolidate which would make the system more streamlined?  If we were to do this, we would get greater efficiency at a lower cost. 

hitler spicerSean Spicer is not the only one who has gotten toasted for making a reference to Hitler with another historical figure.

Last week, the Donald Trump press secretary, foolishly stepped into an "embarrassment slop" by claiming that even the former German dictator did not use gas on its own people.  After entering the “oh, no zone”, he suddenly tried to correct himself by claiming that Adolph Hitler and Assad did not use poisonous gas "in the same way" against his own people.  He stepped into the mud even deeper by remarkably and nervously calling the infamous concentration camps, “Holocaust Centers”.

maness fbOn Friday, the day after Trump ordered the attack on the Syrian air field, I saw a post by Colonel Rob Maness criticizing Trump's decision.  Retired Col Maness has been a very staunch supporter of candidate, president-elect and president Trump.  He is a full colonel in the United States Air Force. 

MANESS LIVETRUMP2Donald Trump spoke with his actions last night.  Syria felt the pain. The world woke up to realize that United States now has a president that shoots from his hip as he shoots off his mouth, but, might be more inclined to shoot missiles to reshape the world.

red linePresident Donald Trump said today that Syria's gassing of innocent children and others has "crossed a lot of lines". Of which line or lines might he be referring? 

The Mason-Dixon Line? A line dance? What's my line? 

share videoIf you don’t get “online” with video, you might find yourself in the unemployment or perhaps, the “business-closed” line.

Whoa!

Ok. Indeed, this is a little hyperbole, but maybe, as we fast-forward into the already accelerating future, perhaps it is more of a reality- strikes-deep-and-hard, than any intended exaggeration.
