Blind Leading The Blind

So to add to the further hub bub about Facebook messenger (or any mobile app) and the prlermissions society doesn’t want to give up, you should download and pay for at least one month of Lookout Premium. Scanned all of the apps on you phone to see what permissions you’ve already granted. You’ll be surprised what you find. Anyone wanna go back to using a flip phone (not the smartphone which will lead to the replacement of people by robots)?

I already know and accept the fact that big brother is watching me.  On Star Trek, the Borg’s infamous statement was “Resistance Is Futile”.  Change is inevitable so adapt and overcome, that’s my motto.  Just my two cents.

#WHPtodayimet

Instagram’s weekend hashtag project (#WHP) was very well planned if I do say so myself, considering the domestic challenges being faced currently and daily in our country. Well played Instagram, encouraging us to get out and appreciate humanity even more by getting to know our neighbors.

 Are you Using Photos Owned by Other Entities?

The Realtors Law & Policy Department says

Cease and desist or pay some steep fines

    You’ve just secured a great listing, but soon you realize that your smartphone photos don’t showcase the property and its surroundings to its full potential. So you go on the Internet, find some pictures you like and use them for your marketing and advertising. The problem for real estate professionals is that the pictures are the intellectual property of some entity. Someone used their time to take, edit, and publish those photos; therefore they own the rights -unless specifically noted. By using those photos you obtained off the Internet, you are infringing on their intellectual property rights without authorization. The Realtors Law & Policy Department says ignorance, accident, or third party use on your behalf, are NOT an excuse. You will be held liable…

Overtown Music & Arts Festival (UPDATED)

“The Overtown Music & Arts Festival formerly named Overtown Rhythm & Arts Festival celebrated the rich history of one of Miami’s earliest settlements. The Festival took place in the heart of Overtown Business District, NW 3rd Avenue between 8th & 11th Streets for the 4th year on July 19, 2014 from 11am to 7pm with local art, food and entertainment.

Overtown is one of Miami’s earliest historically black communities. The area’s first settlers were black workmen who followed the FEC railroad south as it was extended from Palm Beach to Miami. The area we now know as Overtown was originally called Colored Town and was designated by Henry Flagler and Julia Tuttle as the location for black laborers and their families to live.”

So much history happened here, so here’s my tidbit of effort to keeping the cultural hope alive for years to come.
