John Lennon 1980

John Lennon Murder, 30th Anniversary – ESPN OTL

Forty two years later I still remember the shock of learning of John Lennon’s death at that moment. My wife and I just turned and stared at each other in disbelief. Then the tears began to fall.

Better Information?

Wonder if Russia is getting more and better information about their own situation than from their own sources. Guess it is physiological warfare. Must be demoralizing.

The Real Internet Influencers

There are thousands up on thousands of so called influencers on the Internet. Most are trying to sell a product or themselves. How to paint your nails. Style your hair, etc. Learn a new dance. Really? Shoes for lazy people.

There are many that promote the care and rescue of animals. Good for them and their efforts are appreciated.
A few influence peddlers promote actions that may help the environment and the future of the planet. Most others are snake oil hacks. A waste of time and space.

Of all the series on streaming platforms and channels such as YouTube and others I have watched through the years ‘Ocean Conservation Namibia’ is the most compelling channel I have ever seen. For certain there are others that are worth following but they are few and far between compared to the huge cesspool of useless effluent influencers out there. If they are not helping to improve the planet or the lives of wildlife be it one way or another they are a waste of time.

Here are several examples of the work Ocean Conservation Namibia does, their methods and the animals they save.

Their organization is a true influencer. Making one want to take action by volunteering or contributing funds and wanting to share their channel.
