Are we “treating” our emotional ills with retail therapy?

How Technology is Driving the Self Storage Market

Posted By: on December 21, 2011

manhattan mini storage

Mini storage may seem like a low-tech market: you rent a unit, they give you some keys, and you store stuff in it. This view is partly true; storage is pretty straightforward for the consumer. But modern storage facilities have lots of technological concerns: record-keeping, marketing and security.
Inside Self Storage suggests that storage facility owners should take advantage of video calling and cloud data: “Self storage operators use a lot of forms that are all typically printed and stored in filing cabinets at the property. A simple-to-use, cloud-based document-management service could help operators save money, run a more green business, and have a better handle on lease agreements.”

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Trailer)

Posted By: on December 20, 2011


Lord of the Rings fans have been waiting to be reunited with Middle Earth for the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, as we venture back to the beginnings of the brilliant J.R.R. Tolkien’s treasured stories of mystical Elves, Dwarves, Goblin’s and of course the beloved Hobbits.

The countdown has begun as the release of The Hobbit is exactly a year away; it will adorn our screens on December 14 2012. This time we plunge our imaginations into the adventures of Bilbo Baggin’s, a hobbit who is on a quest to reclaim the Lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Bilbo made his appearance in the LOTR trilogies as Frodo’s cousin who adopted him at the age of 21, he also taught the elvish language to Frodo and shared the same birthday with him, as well as long walking trips.

Through the amazing direction of Peter Jackson in the Fellowship of the Ring, we watch as Bilbo leaves the Shire on his one hundred and eleventh birthday and as he departs, he passes forth the Magic Ring and Bag’s End unto Frodo, J.R.R. Tolkien’s main character.

The Hobbit will have us explore the beginning when Bilbo was younger, to when he meets a creature that will change his life forever and takes hold of the “Precious Ring”. Many characters that we have come to love in the Lord of the Ring’s Trilogies will make a return and some will not, we will have to await this journey through a New Year, and four seasons before we will travel back in time upon the captivating voyage through Middle Earth once more.

Another Form of Currency Can Make the World a Better Place

Another Form of Currency Can Make the World a Better Place

Every day we awaken to earn another dollar. To work, is to keep food on our own table, pay bills of necessity and of the things we want, it is what we have been taught from generation to generation which is, working and making money is what keeps the world going round.

Does it?

Having a career and working is essential to keeping us alive, yes, money is important, however, does it truly keep this world of ours spinning in peace and harmony? No.

As a global society, we may have forgotten or put aside the true meaning of life, paying it forward.

Have we dismissed the quality of life that we want to lead?

Perhaps it is due to the economy, the way we are forced to struggle to earn enough money to keep our lifestyles intact. On the other hand, maybe it is due to the greed of our Governments, of those that are in power, even those who are rich may be the cause or perhaps the excuse of what has become of our world, a sense of emptiness, loneliness; a fight for individual gain.

Although taught that money is the key to happiness, each of us arguably knows that when offered a smile, a courtesy, a genuine thought or words of positivity, we feel different. A sense of warmth overwhelms us; we feel a sensation of love, of being understood, seen or heard. Any of these gifts given by another individual has more power than money could ever buy; it is recognition that we are alive.

Perhaps anger and injustice would not harness our world if we did not live for ourselves, if we were not waking only for personal gain, if in amongst each day we added a little something within the lives of another. Perhaps then and only then, our world could find some peace, tolerance and discover the true meaning of unconditional love.

What will make the world a better place?

Another form of currency, Kindness, a simple act can make a bigger impact if we just pay it forward. Maybe One Day, Could be Today.
