Defining Success from Joseph Bismarck’s Point of View

 

Success is a destination that I wish to reach but the road to it has been the greatest challenge. As I read an article from the blog NewsomThingWasGoingOn, I was impressed by the power of self-determination depicted by Joseph Bismark. The article is about Bismark’s willingness to succeed that led him to beating all the life’s challenges to become one of the greatest business owners. Joseph Bismark ascended to the high levels in the corporate world by believing and following his instincts.

With the pressures that come along with establishing a business, I have learned that personal willpower is a very crucial ingredient to success. After reading this article, I have also learned to appreciate ethical approaches in life. I currently appreciate such qualities like honesty and being humble. Life can be demanding especially with all the surrounding pressures to succeed.

However, I think Bismark’s sees life from a different angle. Among his philosophies, he believes that using his success to help others achieve their goals is his job. It interests me to see a man who actually believes that his success is for the good of other people. In order to achieve much in anything we do, team-work and constructive leadership are very important. Bismark used these principles to transform the QI’s Rhythm Foundation.

Surprisingly, spiritual intellect is also a factor to consider when pursuing success. Bismark was spiritually alert and his success is associated with the spiritual disciplines that he learnt from the Philippines. Serving others is a core principle to success as I have learned from the article because it empathises on economic empowerment, poverty alleviation, human rights and promotion of culture through arts. 

In the article, emphasis has also been laid on personal discipline. Under stressful conditions, the mind is unable to be productive. Therefore it is imperative to have peace of mind and to establish a good working relationship at the work place. Working together also means that I should be honest to other people and support the brotherhood code. Through this article, I have realized the inner power that I possess and how I can harness it for my own benefit and for the benefit of others.

New York City Real Estate Can Be Easy To Find With Help From Town Real Estate

Moving can be extremely difficult, especially during certain times of the year. If you’re moving in the wintertime, you’ll have an uphill battle because you have to fight against the cold weather. Unless you live in a warm climate where it’s hot all year round, then you may truly suffer when it comes to moving in the wintertime. What about moving in the summer time? It can be just as painful to move in the summer because the heat will bear down on you, and you may end up sweating a lot more when you have to move. With all that it entails to move from one place to another, why not ease some of the burden off of yourself, and put it on someone else?

Aspects of Visual Effects

First, visual effects are typically computer-generated effects created to be integrated within live shots in order to create a more realistic-looking illusion. Sometimes it is also a nice substitute for that which would be practically impossible to capture in a live shot. Ian Drew, who is the entertainment director for U.S. Weekly argues that when people come to a Michael Jackson concert, for example, that they really just looking for the “communal experience” more than they are for the live celebrity and that considering the large amount of lip synching that supposedly goes on for many conferences, there’s little difference between the real Britney Spears and a hologram of her.

Thanks to advances in technology, visual effects can now be divided into four categories. One is live-action effects, which involves inserting actors or models by a green- or bluescreen. The maps on weather channels are also typically shot in this way. Digital animation is basically 3-D animation but also involves other aspects of the process such as the texturing and lighting. Matte paintings and stills are digital or traditional paintings or photographs that serve as background plattes. Finally, digital effects are various processes which imagery is created or graphically designed to fit into a live scene.

One of the most well-known persons on Facebook in the business is John Textor. He is the chairman and CEO of Digital Domain and Digital Domain’s Media Group. The two companies have together done visual effects for over 80 large scale feature films and almost a quarter, including Transformers and Pirates of the Carribean: The World’s End were under Textor’s leadership. Textor has also helped to produce the virtual versions of Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. The first was for the 2014 Billboard Music Awards and the other three were for the 2012 Coachella Music Festival.

As an executive, Textor was both the chairman and CEO of Sims Snowboards. He worked simultaneously in both strategic planning and finance for Michael Swerdlow Companies. He is the founding director of Lydian Trust Company/Virtual Bank.com.

The visual effects industry has come a long way during the past 20 years. Its future remains to be seen but appears to be giving much room for hope for its continued evolution as time goes on. Who knows what we will see next? An eliminated need for rock stars to go on live tours? Digitalized actors and models? Who knows?

Wordless Searching on the Horizon

Nowadays finding information on millions of topics requires a few key words and one simple click whether you’re on your phone or laptop. Since the internet was established it has become a fountain of knowledge, spouting facts and explanations on a wide array of topics. With technology advancing each day it was only a matter of time before visual searching was thought of and brought to the developing stage. If you’ve got an image you wish to find information about the visual search engine can help you find what you’re looking for. Another use for the innovative technology is people who find art on the web via image searches and would like to find the original artist cause use the visual search to find its origin.

A visual search engine is defined as a search engine that uses images to search the internet and display the search results visually. It uses patterns based on algorithms and gives information based upon a selective or applied pattern match. There are two main groups of search engines, one that is build to find visual information and the other that use a visual display of results. Currently visual searches have two techniques they use to find the desired information. Searching by metadata, which is a comparison of keywords, text, etc, and is sorted by relevance. The metadata associated with the imagines and results can be classified by color, shape, texture and any visual information that is easily extricable from the starting image. The second form is lead by example, where the system needs a higher computational compatibility, but it is also the more reliable of the two. There is also a visual search engine made solely for mobile users and can be accessed through ones mobile phones as long as it has internet access

A leading company in generalizing visual searching is Slyce whom have developed their own visual search software. The design has been vigorously perfected to return close or exact matches of product results for every image capture. Slyce specializes in retail and currently has 3 available apps to download geared towards avid shoppers. One app gives you the ability to snap a photo of a product, find it and buy it all on your phone. It can also match products via Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pictures. With visual search on the rise there are endless possibilities for this advanced search engine.

Enter the New York City Real Estate Market With Expert Help

Navigating the New York City real estate market can be almost impossible without the help of a qualified and experienced agent to assist any search. At any single time the market in New York sees an availability rate of around two percent of all homes in the city at any single time. However, the price of almost everything sold in New York is higher than in other areas of the US, including the price of everyday objects like groceries and gas. This higher than average price is also seen in the price of rentals and home purchases in the city.

Because of the low number of homes available in New York at any single time the number of real estate professionals who are respected and experienced in the city is quite low. Town Real Estate offers a number of different agents with a number of years of experience in the New York City real estate market who can assist by getting hold of new listings as soon as they are placed on the market. Being amongst the first to see a property and make a bid is a major part of facing the new York real estate markets and working with the respected agents of Town is one of the best ways of making sure the movement towards buying or renting a property is as fast and painless as possible.

TOWN states that NYC properties are not only one of the smallest, but it is also one of the fastest moving in the world. New York shares many of the characteristics of top global destinations like London and Paris, where the market is also difficult to navigate without expert help and moves faster than most can imagine. Once a resident makes their way to New York they generally fail to move quickly and only do so when required to because of a growing family. The increase in prices seen in all the boroughs of New York over recent years have made it more vital than ever before to work with a qualified agent to make the most of the real estate market in New York City.

Crystal Hunt – From Soap Opera To The Big Screen

What do fans of Magic Mike XXL and viewers of soap operas have in common? The fact that they will recognize one common thread between the two. Actress Crystal Hunt landed a feature role in the steamy and popular movie, Magic Mike. Hunt plays the part of Lauren. When asked about her role in the film, Hunt said that it was “empowering” and that it was an “honor to be cast.”

As originally reported on the PR Newswire, Hunt knew from the very beginning that she wanted a career that revolved around the arts. She starred in a variety of different commercials. One of those included a band that will make a lot of 90’s kids happy – *NSYNC! She blossomed after that and even won an award for one of her soap opera roles. She landed a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for her part in Guiding Light. Aside from commercials and soap operas, Hunt was also in the movie “Sydney White.”

Hunt had a little bit of practice before her big role in Magic Mike XXL. Hunt is starring in the docu-series “Queens of Drama.” When asked about her experience, she likes to compare the docu-series to Magic Mike XXL. The actress said that both portray a strong group of women. Hunt has surely come a long way from her beginning days. Landing a huge role such is this one will only prove to further her career. Magic Mike XXL was one of the most anticipated films of the Summer and Hunt did her job to make sure that the film delivered.

Tomb Raider Script Ready

Tomb Raider movie script is now out. “Tomb Raider” is a long standing video game series that has achieved an enormous amount of success over the years. Keith Mann recalls that he series has also produced some live action movies.

There has been some talk of a reboot Tomb Raider movie franchise but there’s no official word on when that movie will start filming. What is expected is that the new film will serve as an introduction to Lara Croft, the main character of the series, and a back-story surrounding her and her love of exploration, as the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot game did.

What is also known about the reboot series is that the script has been handled by Evan Daugherty, who is the man behind other films such as “Snow White and the Huntsmen” and “Divergent,” and the co-writer for the TMNT reboot. Now that the script is finally out, MGM and Warner Bros. studios are out searching for a director to take on the adventure series, specifically a female director.

Searching for a female director is not a new concept in regards to movie, because the studios were also searching for a female director to take on the Wonder Woman comic adaptation back in 2014 and found Michelle MacLaren to do it. However, MacLaren dropped the project over creative differences and the heavy duties were then awarded to Patty Jenkins, who was responsible for “Monster.”

Salem Season Finale Recap

On Sunday, June 29, WGN America aired an amazing Season 3 finale for its flagship series Salem.

The horrifying conclusion to the penultimate episode’s Grand Rite opened with Mary and John’s son possessed by evil asleep in a bed with the Countess, Sebastian, Mary, Tituba, Anne and Mercy waiting for him to awaken.

Mary, unable to cope with her losses, walked out says Lime Crime. Sebastian convinced her to return, but when their lord told her that he wanted her as his bride, she fled again.

He decided to judge some of the women. He noted that Mercy forgot her place and bit off her fingertip as a reminder. He told Tituba that he saw everything, including her many lies and betrayals. He offered her freedom, but then killed her with crows as she left Salem.

John Alden died in the woods and his Native American family tried to convince him to go with them into the afterlife, but he refused.

Mary tried to kill the Countess in the Church with fire, but Anne stopped her. The Countess then tried to kill Mary, but Sebastian let her go. When Mary found John, she used the last of her magic to bring him back.

At her house, the dark lord, angry with the Countess, killed her. Lastly, Anne, unable to let go of Cotton, put Little Brown Jenkins inside his throat to keep him in thrall.

What About the Wasp?

In a recent interview, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, discussed what the new Ant-Man movie tells us about plans for the Wasp, said hero’s female counterpart.

In the comics, the identity of the shrinking superheroine Wasp is usually Janet Van Dyne, the wife of Hank Pym, the first Ant-Man. In the Ant-Man film, Sam Tabar said however, Pym is older and passes on the mantle to a new hero, Scott Lang, with information about him and his dead(?) wife told only in flashback and back story. Feige has previously stated that it means a lot to him to introduce her and Pym into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (they were part of the original Avengers team), but when will we see a Wasp save the day?

However, in this version Pym and Van Dyne had a daughter, Hope. She does not exist in the main Marvel universe and is a villain in the MC2 continuity, but Feige strongly hints that she is being set up to become the Wasp in a future movie. (Indeed, according to actress Evangeline Lilly, this was a bit of a problem that the Ant-Man film had to work around: why is Pym passing down the shrinking technology to Lang instead of his own daughter, who seems perfectly capable of using it? There will apparently be several reasons.)

Ant-Man will come out July 17, 2015.

“Star Trek: Uncharted” is a Trekkie’s Dream (Literally)

Though Star Trek films are still going strong (with the third reboot movie, Star Trek Beyond, coming out next year), the franchise has not had a show on the air since Enterprise ended in 2005. Though there was talk of “Star Trek fatigue” (its various incarnations having been on the air for almost two decades), Alexei Beltyukov also says it seems that Paramount is interested in getting it back on TV.

And they’ve asked one dedicated Trekkie for his ideas.

Michael Gummelt has spent twenty years developing an idea called Star Trek Uncharted, which has gained popularity online. It features a future version of the Star Trek universe (200 years post-Kirk) where the Federation receives a message from the Andromeda Galaxy, from aliens who claim to have created all life in the Milky Way. Using new technology, the latest incarnation of the Enterprise is sent to meet the aliens and go even farther where no man has gone before.

And Gummelt is going to go where no fan has gone before: officially pitching his idea to the studio this summer. Until now, only industry insiders have allowed that honor.

Will Gummelt’s idea be picked up? And if so, how much will Paramount alter it (or the several scripts he’s already written)? For now fellow fans will just have to wait and see.
