Marianne Williamson and Poverty

I just received a brief newsletter from Marianne Williamson, and I love the information she is bringing forth from her recent experiences in the slums of Kenya.  Please click on the link below to access:

Life and Debt — the Documentary

There is a fountain of information found at the local libraries.  Not everything need come from the internet, nor do we have to pay for every movie we want to watch.

Today, I found this gem-of-a-movie at the library — and got to watch it for free.  The documentary is called Life and Debt, and is based on the economic problems in Jamaica that started after the British left. It’s a fascinating movie, and I was saddened by the series of events and the situation the country is in.

It’s very well done, and the link I provided gives you tons of information about the movie, so I will not elaborate further.

To your prosperity,

Sue

Credit cards and hacking the internet

I have a technology background and was an adult educator in that field.  One day, one of  my students/users asked me a question about how viruses are made, how hackers get into systems, etc., and I remember answering, “I don’t know — my mind doesn’t go there, so I’ve never had a desire to learn how to do that.”

This recent article is about how 11 people were charged with conspiracy, computer intrusion, fraud and identity theft after 41 million credit card numbers were hacked.  Some of the numbers were sold, and some of them were used by the hackers.

In my email box today, I received an article embedded in a techie-type newsletter that said that there’s a web page infected every 5 seconds on the web.  The websites affected are mostly business sites or the social networks.

I would love to see all that brain power that is focused on mischief and theft go towards helping society, and reclaiming the health of our bodies and our planet.

To your prosperity,

Sue
