For his adherents (and there were many), he was a spiritual guide, a high priest of the inner self, merging Zen Buddhism, the philosophy of Gurdjieff, and other mysticisms and metaphysics into an encompassing world view that began and ended with self-consciousness. His approach was a complete break with virtually all of the traditions of photography, including the importance of subject matter. His students were on a serious journey of awareness, using photography as a tool for deepening their own personal understanding. His pictures took them to places they had never been before, and opened their eyes to new ways of thinking about image making and themselves.

Clark and the prosecution claimed that their intent with the exercise video was to show Simpson’s physical prowess, displaying that he allegedly had the ability to commit the crimes in question. However, in the criminal trial, Simpson was acquitted. But, according to The New York Times, he was found guilty in the resulting 1997 civil suit and ordered to pay “$25 million in punitive damages to the families.”

‘What I’m doing here, by turning over 100 percent of the profits, is probably the most genuine thing I can do. Honestly I feel terrible about what happened. You asked if I had shame: back then, yes. Now, no. I’m not going to live my life in shame. I think that’s a toxic emotion.

Few inventions have changed everyday life as radically as the sewing machine. Altering an important element of daily life, the sewing machine was an innovation on a personal yet universal level. The creation process of the sewing machine was the work of several men over a number of years, however, Elias Howe, Jr. is ultimately considered the inventor of the sewing machine. Four patents were actually issued prior to Howe’s, but none of those inventors made any money. Elias Howe’s innovation, in addition to the mechanical improvements to his machine, was in putting together all of the work of his predecessors, and producing a sewing machine used around the globe. Through this he was able to gain fame and fortune as one of the great innovators of his era.

https://www.artofmanliness.com/2016/10/19/john-rockefellers-keys-to-success/

Rockefeller’s Daily Schedule: Rising at 6AM, he read the newspaper for an hour, then strolled through house and garden from 7 to 8, giving a dime to each new employee and a nickel to each veteran. He then breakfasted at 8, followed at 8:45 by a game of numerica (a puzzle game), which gave him time to digest his food properly (he was strict about relaxing after eating to let his food digest – that’s a life hack for sure!). From 9:15 to 10:15 he worked on his correspondence, mostly devoted to his philanthropy and investments. (As many as 2,000 letters arrived daily at his home, most of them solicitations for money.) From 10:15 to 12 he golfed, from 12:15 to 1PM he bathed and then rested. Then came lunch and another round of numerica from 1 to 2:30. From 2:30 to 3 he reclined on the sofa and had mail read to him; from 3:15 to 5:15 he motored, from 5:30 to 6:30 he again rested, 7 to 9 was given over to a formal dinner, followed by more rounds of numerica. From 9 to 10 he listened to music and chatted with guests, then slept from 10:30 PM to 6 AM. He refused to deviate from this routine by one bit, even when weather was a challenge.

Toothless. Mustached. Menacing. Before being drafted by the Steelers in 1974, the scouting report on Lambert, a marginal talent from Kent State, said that while he didn’t have ideal size for a linebacker, he had a “lust for contact.”

Dr. John Pemberton 1831 – yes, Dr. P invented Coca-Cola

Image result for dr john pemberton

http://www.coca-colacompany.com/stories/the-chronicle-of-coca-cola-birth-of-a-refreshing-idea

Pemberton turned to cocaine as a substitute for morphine. 
The Georgia man began to experiment with opium-free medicine, as he knew his morphine addiction was dangerous. When another doctor claimed he could cure opium habits with coca (cocaine), Pemberton devised his own concoction, which used coca leaves and kola nuts and was called French Wine Coca. A local prohibition law was enacted in 1886, so Pemberton was forced to remove the alcoholic element and his formula thus became Coca-Cola

http://www.pharmacytimes.com/careers-news/5-facts-about-famous-pharmacist-john-pemberton-coca-cola-inventor

Don’t Resist Change

Pemberton’s brain tonic was supposedly a cure for horrible-sounding ailments like, “Neuralgia,” “Hysteria…” and “Melancholia.” But there’s no way that Coca-Cola would be the huge corporation it is today if they hadn’t started marketing their beverage as a soft drink.

Almost two decades ago, a parlor game called “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” became an unlikely grass-roots phenomenon among movie buffs and foretold today’s social web of online connections.
Maybe the only one who was not amused by the game was Kevin Bacon himself.
“I was horrified by it. I thought it was a giant joke at my expense,” said the prolific actor Saturday during a talk at the South by Southwest Interactive festival here. “I appreciate it now. But I was very resistant to it (at first).”

He has also changed the face of dining in cities throughout the nation, first in Los Angeles, then in Las Vegas, where he was the first star chef to create a contemporary fine dining restaurant, paving the way for other celebrated chefs and the city’s metamorphosis into an acclaimed dining destination.

“My favorite workout involves an electric toothbrush and whole lot of squats. If you get an electric toothbrush it usually runs for two minutes [and] you do four quadrants of your mouth. While at the same time, you can do your squats. So I do my squats probably for a minute, which gets me about 50 squats in a minute and then I do leg lifts and raises for the other minute. That pretty much gets my teeth cleaned and my butt toned.”

The day before a newly elected Pope Francis was to be formally installed at the Vatican in 2013, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was celebrating Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica when he passed out at the altar and had to be rushed to the hospital.

“I guess the Lord isn’t done with me yet,” he told the pope.

“Or the devil doesn’t have your accommodations ready!” Francis shot back with a laugh.

Coolidge enjoyed a widespread popularity and could easily have won re-election in 1928. Instead, he chose not to run again.  Personal Factors played a role in his decision, as well as the realization that his work was done and that the public was ready for a new man with a new approach. He remarked to a Cabinet member, “I know how to save money. All my training has been in that direction. The country is in a sound financial condition. Perhaps the time has come when we ought to spend money. I do not feel that I am qualified to do that.” Moreover, as he wisely observed, “It is a pretty good idea to get out when they still want you.”

Then, one day, “two letters came in the mail. One was asking me to come back to my job. The other was inviting me on to Johnny Carson.” The Tonight Show appearance, in November 1971, helped propel “Ain’t No Sunshine” into the Top 10, and the follow-up, “Grandma’s Hands,” reached Number 42.

THEY CONSIDERED ACTUALLY PARALYZING TOM CRUISE.

Stone found a nerve agent that would paralyze Cruise for a few days, and Cruise was open to the idea of using it. But the studio’s insurance company—spoil sports—nixed it.

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.

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
