New Star Wars The Force Awakens Footage in Japanese Trailer

Disney just dropped a new international trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens that includes new footage and clues as to the movie’s storyline. If you want to miss some possible spoilers you shouldn’t watch it. It has, however, helped me grow in my own excitement about seeing the movie. December can’t arrive soon enough!

The YouTube video description (as translated into English via Google Translate) says:

“Star Wars” first round of the A New trilogy, beautifully loneliness continues to wait for a family heroine, with a focus on Ray, a completely new over the Force “family love and the loss of the story of”. Cairo Wren villain is to manipulate the lightsaber of cross-shaped that world attention.

Now, a new legend is born.

The founder of 5-Hour-Energy wants to change the world, again.

The world will be saved from climate change, poverty, and dirty politics because of people like Manoj Bhargava, founder of 5-Hour-Energy. He’s focusing on projects like transforming sea water into drinking water and independent sources of electricity for the 3rd world. The new film “Billions in Change” focuses on these projects and more.

The world is facing some huge problems. There’s a lot of talk about how to solve them. But talk doesn’t reduce pollution, or grow food, or heal the sick. That takes doing. This film is the story about a group of doers, the elegantly simple inventions they have made to change the lives of billions of people, and the unconventional billionaire spearheading the project.

How Can Anyone Not LOVE This Guy?

The ideas that Senator Bernie Sanders is sharing on the political stomping grounds around the USA are better than anything offered up by the current Republican candidates. These ideas are fundamental to the foundations of a healthy society and need to be taken up by others in our political system if they truly care about the United States and not just advancing their own ideological standpoints at the cost of our social and economic futures.

Some of these brilliant ideas include paid parental leave when a child is brought into the world, education and healthcare as a basic right of citizenship and making those who benefit most in our economy to pay the most to keep that economy working. These are things based on the building blocks of human civilization and are the things that will keep us alive. A country is at is best when its citizens are productive, healthy, educated and safe. I want to see America at its best again. I want to see Bernie and many who are willing to work with him elected into office next year.

If you’ve not yet had a chance to see his speech at Liberty University you need to watch it. He makes some incredible points to people who normally wouldn’t be listening to him otherwise:

Patrick Stewart Talks Politics

I grew up on Star Trek: The Next Generation and learned many life lessons from the show. Captain Picard’s willingness to talk and reason through a problem before using force was one of those lessons. Watch him refer to that idea below:

“I wish that politicians would spend more time watching Star Trek: The Next Generation because unlike my predecessor, Captain James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard believed first and foremost in negotiation. He was a diplomat before he was a warrior — talk, talk, talk and keep on talking. And I think that would be a great message for the world to absorb because people don’t have to die to achieve a satisfactory solution to anything.”

“I do believe that. I believe that we reach for the weapons far too quickly.

Windows 10 Launched Today


Today is the day many have been waiting for with excitement (and fear). This new version of Microsoft Windows is released today as a free upgrade for “genuine” users of Windows 7 and 8. It was provisionally reported in error that the this long awaited update would be free for both genuine and pirated copies of Windows. Today the company made it official via an email to Windows Insider members:

  • For PCs running Genuine Windows 7/8 – these machines qualify for a free upgrade to Windows 10 through Windows Update. (You can also do a media-based upgrade though the Microsoft Software Download site.)

  • For PCs not running Genuine Windows 7/8/10 – you can purchase Windows 10 at your local retailer or at online retailers like Microsoft

I am disappointed in the restriction, but understand it was a business choice. It has been reported that some pirates are successfully upgrading to Windows 10. Upgrading my HP Envy running a legal copy of Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 was a beautifully simple process. Your results may vary.

A few of the features Microsoft is promoting about Windows 10 include:

I expect this to be the best Windows yet. How about you? Have you already updated? What do you think?
