God Made A Dog

This has to be the best video I have seen that showcases the true meaning of owning a dog.

Hero Cat Saves Boy

I love animals.

But I love cats more…

A cat by the name of Tara, in Bakersfield, California, came to the rescue of a vicious dog attack.
The dog belonged to one of the neighbours randomly attacked a 4-year-old boy, Jeremy Triantafilo as he is playing on his bike in the driveway.

Jeremy had to have stiches, but the attack could have been far worse.

The neighbour’s dog had to be euthanised.

Fighting Gravity

Truly amazing performance by Fighting Gravity on America’s Got Talent …

Jonathan Allen

Jonathan Allen delivers a truly emotional performance on America’s Got Talent.

Andrew De Leon

Growing up, Andrew De Leon was a big fan of Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie. Listening to them was an escape for him, for he was an outsider. He felt alienated because he was not interested in athletics or other interests commonly followed. Andrew developed an interest in singing, but by his audition, he had never sung to anyone in public, including his family.

Sami Bunmazooka

Sami Bunmazooka has a unique personality and does a great performance in his audition of Season 6
of America’s Got Talent.

Dance-Ish Performance

Kenichi Ebina is a Japanese performance artist who won the 8th season of America’s Got Talent on 18 September 2013.

His solo act, labeled ‘dance-ish’ by Ebina, features his unique self-taught style which combines acting, storytelling, and a number of different dance styles, including freestyle, hip-hop, mime, martial arts, jazz, and ethnic dance.

How safe is your cv ?

In these days of high unemployment, numerous dodgy advertisements pop up on the internet, so you should be really careful about the information you supply in your CVs.

You usually include a variety of confidential information – especially your full contact details (home address, cellphone number, identity number, and so on).

But you never know who sees it and who does not.

If you are responding to an advertisement on Gumtree, for example, you will notice that there is an upload attachment box.

The upload attachment box is used because the advertiser has hidden their email address and they do not want you to see it.

So when you reply to one of these advertisements you should write “To whom it may concern, I believe I am the ideal candidate for the advertised position. Please find attached my CV.”

But instead of attaching it, don’t.

If the person who placed the ad cares about hiring you, they will take the time to respond: “Dear Bob, Nothing was attached. Please resend.”

Now this helps in two ways: 1) It shows that the other side cares and
2) It shows the advertiser’s details (name@name_of_domain.com)
If the person is emailing you from a gmail address or free email address – ask them to send their website details and physical address.

Now I don’t say all those using free email addresses could be dodgy, but they should have alternative contact details, especially if the advertiser wants you to work for them – there should be a physical address to go to.

Negative Impact

Negative Impact

Photographers who offer their services free can have a negative impact on the industry. I am not a photographer, but I have organised countless group photo-shoots for the community where
everything was going perfectly for the first 10 photo-shoots until these freebie photographers offered their free photo-shoots.

Just because you get a free photo shoot does not mean you’re a model or are model-material. Equipment costs money and time is valuable, so photographers should be paid for their time.

If you do manage to get a free photo shoot or multiple free photo shoots from various photographers, do not insult the quality of photo-shoots done by paid photographers.

People seem to believe falsehoods that are started by these freebie photographers to cause problems in the industry and on social media.

People that score these free photo shoots become indoctrinated in such a way that they will believe anything, and will even delete or block a photographer who won’t give them a free photo shoot,
on social media. They will tell their friends to do the same. In this way, they show a sense of fake loyalty to their freebie photographers who often use social media to promote their services.

Photographers who offer their services for free are essentially “robbing” those that want to make money from photography. They label their free shoots as TFCD (Time For Compact Disc), a term used to depict a scenario where both do not receive remuneration from the photo shoot: Free to the photographer because he or she needs someone to photograph; and free to the person being photographed because he or she needs someone to photograph them.

Basically the only expense by either the photographer or the `model’ is time.

The `model’ usually gets the photos , not high-resolution ones, just photos they can upload to their social network of their choice.

I’d like to suggest that we rather refer to this as TMCD – Too Many Cheap Deals.
