0:11 Chris Anderson: Julian, welcome.It’s been reported that WikiLeaks, your baby,has, in the last few yearshas released more classified documentsthan the rest of the world’s media combined.Can that possibly be true?

0:24 Julian Assange: Yeah, can it possibly be true?It’s a worry — isn’t it? — that the rest of the world’s mediais doing such a bad jobthat a little group of activistsis able to release moreof that type of informationthan the rest of the world press combined.


*Who is doing a bad job? How can you do their job better?

She paid close attention to stretching

“One of the greatest minds of the last century said ‘A living is made by what you get, a life is made by what you give,’” Williams said. “I define success by people who understand that the universe will open up to you if you recognize your responsibility to give back.”



*Give back today and the universe will open up to you. Think of donating to MS Foundation – one of Montel’s favorite causes.


Scott Borchetta 1962

It was 10 years ago that Scott Borchetta took a look at the most doom-laden climate in the history of the modern music industry, and decided it was the perfect time to start a record label. What must have seemed a kamikaze gamble turned out to be a stroke of genius, and thanks to a fortuitous meeting with a 14-year-old songwriting prodigy named Taylor Swift, the Southern California native was able to build one of the most dynamic and status-quo challenging imprints since Def Jam turned the label world on its head back in the 1980s.


*What is an industry that is doom-laden and how can you turn it into a dynamic enterprise again?

It’s always the person doing the helping who is the one being helped. Confusing, isn’t it? So next time someone wants to do you a favor, let them. You’re actually doing THEM a favor.


*Today is the day. While watching Jerry Maguire, when you hear “show me the money!” crack open the piggy bank full of $5 bills.


Sandra Lee 1966 – broiled tilapia with summer succotash

In spring of 2015, Sandra was diagnosed with early stage cancer and publicly documented her story. While going through the decision making process to undergo aggressive treatment and the subsequent extensive complications, Sandra decided to allow unrestricted filming access. Her journey can be seen in the HBO documentary short RX: EARLY DETECTION A CANCER JOURNEY WITH SANDRA LEE.  This decision was inspired by her obligation to educate others in taking an active role in their own health care, to provide caregivers with insight and tools for day to day patient care and medical advocacy, while also influencing lawmakers to pass legislation that provide no-cost insurance coverage and increased hours for screening accessibility


*Enjoy Sandra Lee’s broiled tilapia with summer succotash while watching Jerry Maguire with your soulmate.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
