my godfather took this picture some years (1998) before he died of cancer, he loved photography so much even when he was in hospital he used to carry his camera.
i’ve got tons of pictures but this one it’s kinda special, the woman reading in Rio de janeiro, she’s a stranger, he stood there for a couple of minutes waiting to get the perfect angle and took the picture, when he developed it he gave me his camera (even though i was a toddler), if he was alive, he would be one more blogger in here, he was so special, the kind of person that could see your soul before your face.
The picture is awesome, but the story is amazing.
Roku is going to be offering a new version of its Roku Streaming Stick to compete with the massively popular Google Chromecast.

Here’s a link to compare the Roku Streaming Stick to the other offerings in Roku’s lineup: Compare Roku Products
“You can’t help me”
Reading this short piece by Jason Stirman, puts some of my fears of humanitarian work into words. When we go to lower income places, are we really helping people? Or are we just putting a band-aid on a situation?
Band-aids don’t heal wounds. They only cover them up and protect them, while the body heals itself. What if the body doesn’t start the healing process?

Treo Kuittinen, Netflix’s Next Game Changer
Why wouldn’t New York be the filming location? The Marvel Universe basically solely takes place in New York.
