I’ve been a big fan of Jumpy and think he’s the most impressive extreme athletic dog out there. Check out his amazing stunts compilation in an earlier post of mine here. In this video, Jumpy has found his human athletic soul mate, and they do a wonderful romping duet in a park that is nicely captured by an excellent slow motion cinematographer. The flying human is Alex Duong–a professional Parkour (info below) athlete and actor.
The cinematographer is Darren Dyk. Enjoy this canine-human whirling ballet.
About the video
You’ve likely heard about those smarties at TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design). I’ve enjoyed their fine podcasts for years and now their staff has come up with the 25 best apps to help make your everyday life easier.
I’ve been using a few of the selections here and have indeed found them quite useful. The app selections cover four categories: For random life stuff, For getting around, For staying organized, For computer and email ease.
Apps to make your everyday life easier – by TED staff
At our small, fast-moving nonprofit company, everyone does a couple of jobs — and productivity apps help us manage roles that shift between coding, writing/designing and running a full-scale conference twice a year. We asked the TED staff what apps they can’t live without. And beyond the classics—Instagram, Google Maps, Spotify, Uber, Seamless—we found some great apps that might help you too.
Waze GPS, Traffic Navigation, Map – video tour
For getting around…
This app downloads offline, zoomable, searchable maps of major cities, so that even if you are roaming around Tokyo and can’t read any of the signs, you can still find your way around. “It’s good for people like me who travel internationally but don’t like to get data plans,” says Thu-Huong Ha, of our editorial team.
Another great app for travelers, Word Lens visually translates printed text into your language in real time. When you snap a photo of a sign or document, it shows the image to you in English. “It’s crazy,” says Kyle Shearer of our Events Workgroup. “The translations are not always 100%, but it’s good enough to get by on.” Hello, food menus.

Yep, this video is sure short but sweet–just 9 seconds. This puppy reminds me of my dog when he was a puppy who was first learning how to catch. Yeah he was just as pathetic.
From time to time we can find ourselves out of gas, in a rut or even knocked to the ground, and can use a little inspiration to get going again. These sites could lend a hand.
Top 10 Inspirational Websites
Sometimes I get blown away with the awesomeness of the regular things in life. The other day I was in the shower (best place to meditate) and was thinking about the Internet.
I rarely think about the Internet in deep ways, yet I use it more in a day that another other object besides my own body. It is SO vast, full of information, and such a great resource for connecting us to others across the globe. I’m thankful for the Internet and its infinite possibilities.
And I’m thankful for the dynamic people whom fill the webisphere with their knowledge, creativity, and inspirational words to help us live a little better each day. I get asked all of the time what websites I go to for inspiration and so I’ve decided to roundup my top 10 fave sites for you (in no particular order).
The Journal’s tagline, “dedicated to a mindful life” is spot on. I am a huge fan of any info-hub that brings together multiple sectors of life. EJ is a brilliant resource for wellness, spiritual, and creative inspiration. They publish tons of articles everyday, so there is always new inspiration waiting for you. And the layout just makes me smile quite a bit. Article continued here (more…)
If you haven’t seen these funny bits on Jimmy Kimmel before, you’re in for a tweet treat. I’ve gathered all 7 editions that have aired over the past two years to give you a quick laughing binge.
Since I think the Mean Tweets have gotten funnier over time, I have sorted all the videos below from the most recent to oldest. Thanks go out to my ever vigilant niece Maya for sending me cool funny stuff like this for my site.
At this point, the case could maybe, possibly be made that the market is oversaturated with late-night viral videos, and that maybe, possibly the talk shows should cut down on them a bit. That said, if only one can remain, it should be Jimmy Kimmel’s recurring “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” series. It is a national treasure. – Time Magazine

The Wolf of Wall Street is a 2013 black comedy directed by Martin Scorsese, based on Jordan Belfort’s memoir of the same name, and the script was written by Terence Winter.
Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title – “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.

Recipes Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup - Applebees Chicken Wonton Tacos - Cheesecake Factory Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake - Panera Bread Broccoli Cheese Soup - Panda Express Orange Chicken - Starbucks…
Olive Garden zuppa Toscana soup is a classic, delicious and hearty Italian soup with sausage, potato, bacon and kale. We have one recipe from Olive Garden’s cookbook and one that’s a healthy low fat version.
So someone who used to work at the Olive Garden sent in the original recipe and I’ve adapted it to serve just 6-8. In my opinion, making these recipes at home makes them even better than the ones you eat at the restaurant! The soup at The Olive Garden is not thick. If you wish yours to be more like a cream soup, simply simmer it longer, and mash some of the potatoes in the pot with a wooden spoon, and stir frequently until of the desired consistency.
