bill gates’ last day

This is a hilarious video of Bill Gates shown at the CES as part of his final keynote speech this past week.  I know that it’s easy to make fun of him because of the haircut, the nerdiness, the sweater, the Microsoft empire, etc. but the more I reflect on his legacy and particularly, his philantrophy and foundation, I’m amazed.  I know many younger folks are drawn to Steve Jobs of Apple, but there’s something very appealing about Bill that grows on me.

Check out the video. He’s got some notable friends…with funny cameos by Spielberg, Bono, Jay-Z, Barack Obama, and many more.

    i do admire what Bill has done for his creation of microsoft as well as what he is doing on the side to help the needy. BUT as you have seen on my previous comments on different topics, i just have to comment on everything…and at times interpreted as abrasive. for those who might be affended, i do apologize in advance. there are more that deserves out admoration as well as appreciating their presence in this world.

    a year ago, i have received an email from my coworker. he forwarded me a local newspaper article and the reason my partner in crime “Todd” will be out for 2 weeks from project management. The article was that of “Todd’s” brother in-law who was a camptain for US special forces. He was based in IRAQ and was hit with IMD while riding in his humvee. He initially survived approx. 2 mins after the hit. He took out a picture of his family before he died, and told another surviving soldier and said “Please, tell my wife and kids i love them, i will always be with them and will be looking down from above” Those were the last words.

    It is great to marvel on those who made fortune and giving away fortunes. however, should we idolize them as many do. There are those that are dying so that you and I can sleep safely tonight. Please support out soldier and pray for them, as they are doing you a favor by dying in Christian-hating country in hopes that we all can be safe.

    I may not be a Bill Gates fan, but that video was brilliant! If a guy like that is going to display his sense of humour, more power to him. I’m also not a Hillary fan, Obama fan, Al Gore fan, Jay Z fan, etc. but it all just added to the hilarity of it. You seem to have a knack at finding the best videos and sharing them here…the Rick Astley music video a few months back was awesome! Nice to find a pastor’s blog that has some comic relief now and then. 🙂 Keep it up!

    Great entertaining fun video…where and who produced it???

    Maybe because of his family ties to Hollywood he will now become a film star..maybe not!

    I belong to the Cult of Mac. Even so, many in the mac community love and respect Bill Gates. The success of Microsoft, his ongoing philanthropy, his iconic contributions to the tech world and of course his history with Steve Jobs…it’s like the relationship between Magneto and Prof Xavier!

    Here is a historical moment from geek heaven: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3tUkyCRp0A&feature=related

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

"He must become greater; I must become less." - John 3:30 We have to remind ourselves of this truth every day lest we forget:

Our greatest calling as followers of Christ is to be faithful. Not spectacular. Not glamorous. Not popular. Not relevant.

Be faithful.

PS: Also, it helps to get some Vitamin D especially if you live in the rainy Northwest Thank you, Brooklyn, for the reminder. Umm, @jlin7 is a Christian but he wasn't very Christlike with me on the basketball court. He muscled me into the paint, dunked on me, mentioned my momma, and then said, "Stick with preaching." Just kidding. Kind of.

If you haven't heard, Jeremy Lin is donating his one games wages (approximately $140,000) and an additional $100 for every 3 pointer made to support Girls' Empowerment and Education through @onedayswages. That game is this Friday vs the Boston Celtics!

Join his campaign as he's inviting his fans to donate just $7. - http://onedayswages.org/jlin

Did you know that 32 million girls of lower secondary school age are not enrolled in school.

Did you know that every year of secondary school increases a girl’s future earning power by 20 percent.

Did you know that if all girls in Sub-Saharan Africa, South and West Asia had a secondary education, child marriage would fall by 64 percent.

We can't change the entire world but we can impact the lives of one, few, and in some cases...many.

#jeremylin #jlin #linsanity #onedayswages Don't be held captive to either praise or criticism.

Know who you are.
Know what you're about.
Know WHO you serve.

The answer to who you serve makes all the difference... It's the day after International Women's Day - and it's still important to celebrate the contribution of women in our lives, society, and world. As we honor women all around the world, I'm also reminded of how women and children are those who are most deeply impacted by injustice - especially poverty.

Sadly, I have witnessed this reality in too many places. ​In 2012, I traveled to a remote area in Eastern Kenya as part of a @onedayswages response to a famine that struck the Horn of Africa region. This famine impacted nearly 13 million people and according to some sources, took the lives of about 250,000 people. During my trip there, I had the chance of meeting many people but the person that still remains in my memory was a Muslim woman named Sahara.

She was so hospitable in inviting us to her small and temporary home. During our conversation, I learned that ​Sahara traveled 300 kilometers (a little under 200 miles) – some by cart and some by foot – as they sought to escape the worst drought that has impacted East Africa (Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia) in the past 60 years.

This is not a misprint.
200.

She traveled about 200 miles on cart and foot. ​And all along, she was ill. If you look closely ​at the photo, you might notice the large lump in her throat - likely a large cancerous tumor.​ She did not travel alone. She traveled with her husband who I was not able to meet because he was staying with one of his five other wives in this polygamist community.  She did not travel alone. She also traveled with her six children – the youngest being about 1 and the oldest being around 8. She had just given birth to her sixth child when they began her journey. Her youngest was severely malnourished when they arrived to this new settlement in a town called Benane. 
Sahara and her children all survived this journey. They survived because she persisted. 
In honor of Sahara...and so many other women who keep...keeping on.
