A reflexive view on the world with out internet

The internet can be a great thing. However, allowing one’s spirit to flit away from the internet is beyond rewarding. Rather than watching a tv show while checking the internet I could be imbued with the awesome story that the filmmaker was trying to relay. I don’t need to check Twitter and declare to you all what I saw was stupid or cool. I can do the same thing with music. So, follow my lead and walk away from the computer for the night. Whatever is in your inbox will be their when you come back. Nothing is as important as time in the real world.

poem: gone and yes forgotten

The computer is quite insane. It has no respect for the pain it causes me. Now I am blue because I don’t have any more data pue.
I feel that this is a good thing because I still have all my spanish frame. The files took a ride on to a diik drive.

quite a pain in the ass

Today is quite annoying. My laptop was giving me fits with respect to accessing files. It wouldn’t let me attach any to emails nor would it let me erase said files from the harddrive. So I did a recet and when it told me their was an eror on the drive would I like to do a factory reset which would remove all files from the drive I chose to do so, after saving the necessary files for my Spanish class. Below is a list of what is gone.
All my contacts, all my saved emails including those that had rules for spanish class, all my files from other classes, all my saved websites excluding Twitter and Facebook. Although their is one bright side: it moves allot faster now.

a twitter tsunami of bad choices

Nothing says bad choice of emogi bro quite like what the Houston Rockets tweeted out on Tuesday. Some may call this an over reaction but it is representing a brand like it or not but it is representing the brand of the Rockets NBA team. Now that is perhaps the justification for why the team fired their social media maniger one Chad Shanks on Wednesday. I personally am not outraged over what he chose to use because quite frankly I control my own social media ( http://www.twitter.com/tylershepard223 ) and their are so many other things to be outraged about in this world. what he done do
This is what happened via the ESPN article: “Toward the end of the Rockets’ victory Tuesday night, the team tweeted an emoji imagery of a pistol next to a horse and text suggesting the Mavs succumb to an inevitable end.” The fallout was quick!
First Dallas responds.
@HoustonRockets Not very classy but we still wish you guys the best of luck in the next round.

Dallas Mavericks (@dallasmavs) April 29, 2015

Our Tweet earlier was in very poor taste & not indicative of the respect we have for the @dallasmavs & their fans. We sincerely apologize.

Houston Rockets (@HoustonRockets) April 29, 2015
“Sometimes you can go too far,” Shanks said on Twitter. “I will no longer run @HoustonRockets but am grateful to the organization that let me develop an online voice.

Rockets officials also confirmed the firing. (perhaps we can all learn something from this #thinkbeforeyoupost )

did a us senator just call out Iran’s top diplomat on Twitter?

A senator of the United States just challenged Iran’s top diplomat to a debate on the idea that congress can undue the nuclear deal with President Barack Obama.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) was not very happy that Obama is going to make a deal with Iran. Last year he was the lead author on an open letter declaring that the deal can be undone because congress and another potus could use a pen.
Mr. Cotton took to Twitter to challenge Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif to a debate.
it should be noted that hours earlier, in response to a question from Business Insider, Zarif had warned that if a future president disregarded a nuclear deal with Iran, it would cause “chaos” in the US’s bilateral relations.
“I think the United States, whether you will have a Democratic president or whether you have a Republican president, is bound by international law … and international law requires the United States to live up by the terms of an agreement,” Zarif said during an event at New York University.

Mr. Zarif added in a shot aimed specifically at Mr. Cotton.

“You know that, maybe Sen. Cotton doesn’t, but you know that 90% of US overseas agreements are executive agreements,” Zarif said. Below is his 4 Tweets
Hey @JZarif , I hear you called me out today. If you’re so confident, let’s debate the Constitution. 1/4

Tom Cotton (@SenTomCotton) April 29, 2015 Here’s offer: meet in DC, @JZarif , time of your choosing to debate Iran’s record of tyranny, treachery, & terror. 2/4

Tom Cotton (@SenTomCotton) April 29, 2015 The Senator wasn’t finished.

I understand if you decline @JZarif after all, in your 20s, you hid in US during Iran-Iraq war while peasants & kids were marched to die 3/4

Tom Cotton (@SenTomCotton) April 29, 2015 Not badge of courage @JZarif , to hide in US while your country fought war to survive-but shows cowardly character still on display today 4/4
