What do you truly desire?

In a fast-moving world filled with so many distractions, it’s all too easy to lose sight of what’s truly important.

Here’s a great reminder that we have to prioritize to live a life that reflects our values.

“You can clarify your priorities and get your life on track by asking yourself these two simple questions:

“What do I truly desire?

“and

“What is standing in my way?”

Live the life you want today. No one else will live it for you.

Happy 30th Birthday, World Wide Web!

Thirty years ago today, the World Wide Web was conceived. Here’s an important letter from the man who invented the web on March 12, 1989, Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

“Against the backdrop of news stories about how the web is misused, it’s understandable that many people feel afraid and unsure if the web is really a force for good. But given how much the web has changed in the past 30 years, it would be defeatist and unimaginative to assume that the web as we know it can’t be changed for the better in the next 30. If we give up on building a better web now, then the web will not have failed us. We will have failed the web.”

It’s time for us to take back control of the web.

Trolls, incels, and toxic males can’t keep a good Captain Marvel down

Sam, Ellen and I watched “Captain Marvel” today.

So awesome! We love Carol Danvers so much. And, yes, Thanos better watch out.

Here’s an excellent review from Wired on why “Captain Marvel” is about female power, not empowerment. Spoilers, if you haven’t seen the movie yet.

“If there’s one line, one quote, that will endure from Captain Marvel, it’ll likely be this one from Carol Danvers herself: ‘What happens when I’m finally set free?’”

The ballad of Cyclops and Wolverine

Heh, some things never change, even after both Scott Summers and Logan came back from the dead.

Cyclops and Wolverine are “The Last X-Men” and they’re building a new team. Uncanny X-Men #13 shows this new team in action, and the X-Men finally feel like the X-Men again. The X-Men comic books haven’t felt like that in a while.

‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ to become Netflix Spanish-language original series

I never thought I would see the day when “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, the landmark novel of one of my favorite authors, Gabriel García Márquez, would be adapted for the screen.

“Rodrigo Garcia and Gonzalo García Barcha, García Márquez’s sons, will serve as executive producers on the series, which will be filmed in Colombia.

“‘For decades our father was reluctant to sell the film rights to Cien Años de Soledad,’ Rodrigo Garcia said, using the original Spanish title, ‘because he believed that it could not be made under the time constraints of a feature film, or that producing it in a language other than Spanish would not do it justice.'”

Gracias, Netflix!
