I remember riding with my parents on north bound 101 and seeing nothing but frames of houses under construction on the east side of San Jose. I was truly amazed. I said to my self this place is going to be big one day. When I caught the bus to San Jose to enroll at San Jose City College 1973 I remember arriving at the Greyhound Bus Station to an eerie deserted downtown. Catching a red and yellow Peerless Bus, I traveled down unto a finished part of 280 that was still under construction . I thought wow this pace is going to be big. Working in technology while I was in college I saw the beginnings of Intel and Apple and worked for both these companies. The spirit of invention was everywhere and I wanted to be a part of it.2009 San Jose is a beautiful place with beautiful people. And I still see a bright future for the largest city in the Bay Area and Northern California. Congratulations San Jose.

I was talking to some older folks and we start a conversation about my generation. It was an interesting conversation we talk about my generation and how we are codependent on technology. We also talk about how my generation and some don’t want to work for thing and we want thing to come easy. I think if it wasn’t for the technology that our elder’s made before us making easier for some of the younger generation they wouldn’t depend on technology. Some of the older generation is just mad that they can’t work some of the technology. That is an issue that we will always faces.

Celebrities Relationships You would think that with all the money that celebrities have that they would make the right choices on who they date and marry, but they don’t. Like Chris Brown and Rhiana you think they would get along but nope it’s all down hill for them. Mel Gibson and Robyn Gibson are getting a divorce after 28 years. After 28 years I couldn’t just throw that away, that’s a long time to be with someone and to have kids with. So know matter what, all the money in the world doesn’t mean you will be happy. http://www.celebritygossip.net/celebrities/category/celebrity-legal/ B.M.

I think the two teams that are going to be in the finals are the Los Angles Lakers, and Cleveland Cavs. The Lakers role players aren’t better than Cleveland’s role player because there slower. If the Lakers don’t figure out how to beat athletic teams they won’t beat the Cavs. The only problem I see with the Cavs is if Lebron James gets taken out of his game and is force to take shots that he doesn’t have to take and the other role players don’t step up. Other than that the Cavs need to push the ball and run it down the Lakers throats. Go Cavs!!!!! B. M.

Newspapers – “Endangered Species” Senator John Kerry is testifying before the Senate today that steps must be taken to protect newspapers so that the news media can stay diverse and independent. Although, I would not like to see newspapers across this country fold, online news is much more timely and efficient. No one wants to see large industries die and more unemployment, but the government cannot bail out every failing industry. In this technological age with the variety of online news sources, newspapers cannot compete effectively or efficiently. If you follow online news sources such as The Huffington Post, Politico, Talking Points Memo their news is updated several times a day with breaking news coverage instantaneously. How can printed media compete with the online media’s timely news coverage, the diversity of writers and opinions expressed on those sites? So, it’s time for newspapers to think outside of the box and come up with new revenue sources, develop an online presence and not expect the government to bail them out. They need to develop unique content that will keep their readers interest. If not, newspapers will go the way of the typewriter, floppy disks, and other endangered species – may they rest in peace.

It is about time, we have a President that is about helping the people. I live in San Jose and I think Obama’s proposal on closing tax loopholes for companies and individuals with banks with accounts overseas is great. Why should these U.S. companies or U.S. individuals defer tax payments and keeping profits in foreign countries? I know the U.S companies can see how the U.S. is hurting for jobs. If they are willing to bring back the jobs to U.S. then I say good for them, but if not then tax them all. For the individual who have bank accounts in the Cayman Island, yea you should be taxed too, if this means $210 billion over ten years that will help. The working class needs a break. I say hooray to Obama, I know he is going to have a lot of opposition. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090504/ap_on_bi_ge/us_obama_taxes LM
