    TEDx Mile High 2017

    I should start off by saying ‘long time, no blog’ but that would just be strange. I do write all the time but it’s for my sports blog SidelineSignals.com and soon you will see my stuff on CollegeFootballNews.com. Anyway, this one is about TEDx Mile High 2017 and the things I took away. So yes, […]

  • Brilliance Of Retrospect

    Brilliance Of Retrospect

    It’s the old adage, ‘hindsight is always 20/20.’ In the vast majority of the cases this is true and it’s true with Mitt Romney. I didn’t vote for Romney either time he ran for the President. However, if he would have done what he knows in retrospect he should have done and explain the ‘why’, […]

  • Tribe

    Tribe

    I came across an interview with author, filmmaker, and journalist Sebastian Junger. He was promoting his new book Tribe on ‘On Point’ with Tom Ashbrook. It was very, very interesting. This idea of a ‘tribe’ is something that was brought up by a friend of mine about 7 – 8 years ago.  He was telling […]

  • The Extraordinary

    The Extraordinary

    While the US sits in the every tightening grip of the 2016 Presidential election, it would be very easy to just soak in what the candidates have to say and come to the conclusion that America really is screwed. I choose not to believe that. I lean with Warren Buffett who in his annual letter […]

    Playing To The Edge

    You cannot have a debate about security, intelligence, terrorism or privacy without bringing in former CIA and NSA Director Michael Hayden into the conversation. Whether you agree with him or not, he is an individual who was a player on every major and controversial decision for over a decade (1999-2009) in this country. Think for a minute […]

  • The Inescapable Now

    The Inescapable Now

    It’s looking more and more like a William Gibson or Neal Stephenson novel out there. Governments suing companies to open up security features, a new documentary looking into how our world is wrapped in hackable code, sprinkled in some drones strikes decided by big data and it’s straight armageddon out here right now. Alex Gibney […]

    Lights Out

    When Ted Koppel speaks we listen. We hope he’s wrong but what happens if he’s not?

  • Outside The Comfort Zone

    Outside The Comfort Zone

    Nate Boyer is a baller. Volunteering in Africa, Green Beret, walk on at Texas and now trying to make it in the NFL as a long snapper for the Seattle Seahawks. The definition of a baller. He recently wrote an article for Monday Morning QB which was something outside of his comfort zone. Something he thinks […]

  • When The Water Runs Dry

    When The Water Runs Dry

    Water is becoming a big issue. In fact it has been an issue for a lot of years. In fact the US Defense Department (DoD) is concerned about. In fact the in the 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review it states: ‘Competition for resources, including energy and water, will worsen tensions in the coming years and could […]
