www.inspiremetoday.com clipped from www.inspiremetoday.com Jessica Maxwell Jessica is a nationally acclaimed adventure-travel writer and author of Roll Around Heaven. The main problem modern thinking people have with the mystical realm is...over-thinking. We're often not quite intelligent enough to realize that it's the "logical" parts our brains that insist on "logical" explanations for everything. This is like banks insisting on their own bailouts, to which I say: duh. Thus are many bright spiritual-minded folk calling for something smarter.

SET | Could this rift derail HC reform?

Image
Many thought it would not take long for other states to balk at the special deal given Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska on the Senate health care reform package. Why can't lawmakers understand that this is the United States of America? Their deal making at these levels are affront to fair plan and sound policy.

SET | HCR: The story (and the law) is not yet done

Image
HCR (Health Care Reform) has a final chapter to be written in the new year and it is anybody's guess if the Christmas holiday recess brought the feuding sides together or drove them apart. Stay tuned for details, once more proving that there are two things you don't want to see made: sausage and laws.

My avocation with blogging has taken a nostalgic turn with the migration of my creations to iWeb where I employ the graphic genius of my iMac and MacBook, although the desktop computer is the primary tool. While I still have a learning curve to close, the iMac software for bloggers is a step up from the PC and the Google Blogger domain that served well before. Actually, the former blogs remain for purposes of providing RSS feeds for archiving the former and current content. Browse a few of the blogs by visiting this directory site.

Donation by Action: The New Social Charity Model

Image
Drew Olanoff was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in May of 2009 and launched BlameDrewsCancer.com. For every person that follows @DrewFromTV, Drew Carey will donate $1 to Olanoff's charity of choice, LIVESTRONG.2009 was a heck of a year for technology. In the age of sharing, mini-sharing, and micro-sharing, something unexpected happened: A lot of good actually came out of it. And I was lucky enough to be involved in a real renaissance of caring, action, and good old fashioned awareness-raising.With the economy in the shape that it's in, bouncing back or not, charitable donations go to the bottom of everyone's to-do list. "I'll donate money to charity next year." That's definitely something I've said, until May 20th, 2009, when I was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system. Being a geek and a sharer, I had one of two options: I could have packed it in and stopped working, tweeting, updating Facebook, an…
