The first thing I did was keep an honest accounting of a week (168 hours) of my time. As if I were a dieter logging every morsel, I wrote down every activity: every email check, every work distraction, every unnecessary errand. I used a notebook for this, though some time trackers use spreadsheets or apps such as aTimeLogger andTimeTracker.
 

When I looked over the log, I saw a lot of activity, of course, but I also saw surprising amounts of space. Turns out 168 is a lot of hours.”

Crazy marketing tactic for local music…

For those who have not heard, a new advertisement has caused quite a bit of backlash. The complaints however differed from usual attacks, directed at crude humor or obscene images. This time attacks were motivated by the presence of a multiracial family within the commercial. The commercial, entitled Just Checking, was released by the ad team at Cheerios on Youtube. It depicts a young biracial girl, her Caucasian mother, and African American father. In response several viewers responded to the ad with racist and hateful remarks that Cheerio’s would depict a multi-racial family.  One of the comments, as reported by UPROXX.com, read: Nice try Cheerios ad team! I’m never eating Cheerios again! Good day sir!!!.  The comments grew so imbued with racial hate that General Mills had to disable commenting on the video.

The commercial illuminates just how stunted many American society remains in our supposedly “post-racial” society. It is arguably a mystery how the nation can elect a biracial individual to the presidency, yet there is a serious backlash when a fictitious biracial family is presented in the media.

Recently a staff writer for Nokia released a favorable review of Nokia’s new phone: the Nokia Lumia 620. The catch: the review was on Nokia’s own blog. Readers were annoyed with the review because it was obvious to them that Nokia would promote the use of their own product. Many readers commented with statements like, “you just reviewed your own … product…How stupid do you think people are?” another reader replied, “so Nokia posted a review of its own product. Hilarious,” and another commenting on Nokia competitor’s stated humorously, “ so I hear Steve Jobs thought the iPhone was the best…”
