7 Amazing Success Lessons from Pablo Picasso

Pablo Ruiz Picasso was a famous Spanish painter, draughtsman, and sculptor who lived most of his adult life in France; he is best known for co-founding the Cubist movement and for the wide variety of styles embodied in his work.

Among his most popular works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907) and Guernica (1937), his portrayal of the German bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.

Picasso demonstrated uncanny artistic talent in his early years, painting in a realistic manner through his childhood and adolescence; during the first decade of the 20th century his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas.

His revolutionary artistic accomplishments brought him universal renown and immense fortune throughout his life, making him one of the best-known figures in 20th century art.

7 Amazing Success Lessons from Pablo Picasso:

1. Get into Action

“Action is the foundational key to all success.”

The first part of done is do; to succeed you must be in action.  Put together a “brainless” strategy for your success and work that strategy day-in and day-out.  Success will only find you if you’re in action.  Are you in action?

2. Be Like a Child

“All children are artists.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

Artists create, to succeed you must create.  You must create a better life from what you have now, just as a child you have the power to create.  The question is are you going to do it.  You can make excuses, you can complain, or you can create the life of your dreams, starting right now.

3. Learn How to Steal

“Bad artists copy.  Good artists steal.”

When you steal, you make it your own.  So much so that the person who’s been defrauded doesn’t even recognize that they’ve been heisted.  You give your stolen ideas a new twist, a new spin; in a way that only you can do.  …Only bad artists copy!

4. First Things First

“Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.”

Sometimes things get worse, before they get better.  Even after you climb one mountain, you have to go into a deeper valley to climb the next mountain.  Life happens in cycles; sometimes you have to tear down before you can build up.

5. The Imagination Is Powerful

“Everything you can imagine is real.”

When you imagine something you make it real.  It then exists in the world of imagination.  Through right action that imagination becomes reality.  But it all starts in the imagination.  Every great company, every great concept, was once just an idea in someone’s imagination.

6. Think Bigger

“He can who thinks he can, and he can’t who thinks he can’t.  This is an inexorable, indisputable law.”

There are two types of people, those who think they can, and those who think they can’t, in which do you belong.  It’s pretty simple, if you really believe you can do something, and if you can hold on to that belief, through the ups and downs you will accomplish it.  You have to think big, and to think big you have to talk big.  I’m not talking about talking to others; you have to talk “big” to yourself.

7. Experience

“I am always doing that in which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.”

Nothing can take the place of experience.  Do what you’ve never done, to get what you’ve never gotten.  You have to expand your horizons; you have to enter new waters.  When you do, you will grow, and you will change.

Hands on: Sony Cybershot DSC-WX10 Review

Finally I have received the Sony camera I’ve ordered back in January. this will be a long review. take your time reading it as I will be trying to write about every aspect of the camera’s features and specs.

The Sony Cybershot DSC-WX10 is part of Sony’s latest mid-range of Cybershot cameras, sitting alongside the more rugged HX9 and the company’s 30x superzoom offering, the HX100V.

It may not boast the big zooms of the aforementioned – here you get a more-than-passable 7x optical zoom – but it still has a long list of great imaging features.

In my initial tests, the WX10 seems like a very competent compact. Its chassis is 94 x 56.1 x 16.7mm, so it is superslim “considering the feature it carries” and fits neatly in the hand. It’s light, too, at just 109g.

Mode dial

Sony has managed to pack a mode dial on to the WX10’s diminutive frame. This is situated on the back of the camera. Give it a quick flick and you can get to most features here, including an improved Sweep Panorama mode, a 3D mode and video.

All of these are worth mentioning as they are all worthwhile features. The improvements made to Sweep Panorama now means you can have poster-sized (40MP), the 3D shooting can be played back on a 3D ready TV and the video on board is Full HD, at 1080/50i.

In short, these are high-end features not usually seen on a mid-range compact.There’s also an addition to the auto modes. Superior auto mode will take a number of images and combine them to create the best image possible. It’s like HDR but Sony were reticent to call it this.

Whichever way you look at it, it is a worthy addition – even if the consumer may get a little confused having two auto functions on the mode dial.

TFT LCD

The screen on the back of the WX10 is a 2.8-inch TFT LCD. In the bright shooting conditions I was testing the camera it performed well – there was no cupping my hands over the screen to see exactly what I was shooting.

As with the rest of the Cybershot range, the WX10 comes with a 16.2MP Exmor sensor, which is more than enough megapixels for even the most hardened shutter nutter.

Although I was fooled by the pictures  sonystyle.com and amazon.comwere posting about the camera as both websites showed the camera from angels that make it look so thin. But overall Sony has impressed me with the WX10. It offers features you would expect on a DSLR in a slimline and very capable compact.

The Wallee : Mounting Solution for iPads

 

The Wallee is both a hard case for iPad as well as a simple and efficient wall mounting solution. It allows you to use your iPad throughout your home. It’s one of the best solutions out there, and delivers both on style and functionality. The Wallee is a gadget that is so well-engineered . It has just blended its way into many people everyday life – just like the iPad itself.


When the iPad first launched, one of my first thoughts was how good it would be to have the iPad on the wall for recipes, TV and video whilst cooking. I am not alone in my thinking. Over the past few months numerous wall mounting solutions for the iPad have emerged.

From Jesse Rosten’s simplistic but beautiful use of Velcro to more permanent solutions such as the Pad Tab and WallPort, Everyone is trying to get in on the wall mounted tablet game.

The Wallee is a near perfect solution for wall mounting your iPad. Its construction is of the highest quality, with parts manufactured from thick plastic and steel and a design that holds its own even when placed next to the iPad itself.

There are two parts to the Wallee: a well-fitting hard case that has a cross-shaped hole in the back and then a complimentary x shaped dock that the iPad slides onto.


Once installed the Wallee works perfectly, just slide the iPad (with case) onto the bracket, turn and you are done. The fixing is secure and at no point do you feel worried that your precious device will fall. It comes in a range of different colors, and even includes a clear version, allowing you to protect your device while still see the iPad itself.

As You will see in the above video, installation isn’t just a matter of sticking a pad on the wall and go. You need to line the metal bracket up, drill holes and affix screws. For some this may be enough to put them off buying; for me it made the product even better. Yes, it’s a pain in the ass having to get the toolbox out but I feel much happier about my iPad being affixed to the wall with screws and wall-plugs, then I would with a sticky membrane.

In my experience, no matter how good a glue claims to be, they will always fail eventually. On the plus side, getting out the drill is good for you, makes you feel like a real man! (or very talented woman)

Mind Blowing: HAARP Conspiracy Theory

Am I going to try and convince you to believe in conspiracy theories ? NAH ! Why bother when better men than me have tried, died and failed. I’m not a fan of conspiracy theories but the following information is really mind blowing ! I couldn’t fit the whole thing in one post. But tried to collect as much as possible data to add some sense to the post !

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).Its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance purposes. The HAARP program operates a major Arctic facility, known as the HAARP Research Station, on an Air Force owned site near Gakona, Alaska.

As of 2008, HAARP had incurred around $250 million in tax-funded construction and operating costs. HAARP has also been blamed by conspiracy theorists for a range of events, including numerous natural disasters.

In this post I will discuss Japan’s earth quick link to HAARP. Please Note that the following data were gathered from several sources from allover the internet.

A huge 8.9 Richter scale earthquake rocked Tokyo today resulting in a giant tsunami causing incredible amounts of damage, injuries and deaths. My first reaction was to check the University of Tokyo’s HAARP induction magnetometer to see if HAARP was fired up around the time of the quake. Sure enough, following a week of electromagnetic silence, HAARP was turned on at approximately 0:00 hours 9 March, 2011 UTC and has been going strong since.

Next I started searching the net for other evidence linking HAARP to Japan and found these videos from 2009 and 2010 where HAARP or some similar weather modification device is clearly being used over Japan skies:

Lastly I found an interesting article regarding the 2007 Niigata, Japan earthquake called “Western Bankers Threatened Japan with HAARP Eco-Destruction a Year Before China Quakes.” Before the Niigata earthquake, just as before the China and Chile quakes, strange aurora-like lights were seen in the sky, lights that HAARP experts have confirmed are caused by electromagnetic disturbance coming down from the ionosphere:

There are some extreme conspiracy theories that claims that HAARP is even behind deadly diseases like HIV, Birds flu etc. these theories also claim that HAARP goal is to control the world population. Additionally they suggest that HAARP have a grip control over the media and they have been using it to convince people that 2012 is the end of the world. While for HAARP it is just the beginning of a new World.

There certainly has been a huge spike in devastating earthquakes striking close to capital cities the past several years. What does everyone else think about this?

Bug munches plastic trash, possibly cleaning oceans

Nature may have found a way to dispose of the huge amounts of plastic garbage, which has been increasingly accumulating in the oceans. A small bacteria feeding on it has been discovered. This may be a boon or a bane for the aquatic environment.

The bacteria was discovered through electron microscopy on plastic items sampled at the Sargasso Sea, an area in the North Atlantic, where debris tends to stack up due to local currents.

The primitive organisms live in pits in the plastic and appear to feed on it as well, says marine microbiologist Tracy Mincer of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts.

“They look like you took a hot barbecue briquette and threw it into snow,” Nature News cites Mincer as saying. “You see this melting bit all around the outside of the cells, and they’re just burrowing into the plastic.”

The specialized bug is not encountered in other environment, like surrounding seawater or seaweed.

Scientists are not yet sure whether these organisms will eventually do more good than harm in dealing with pollution. If their digestion products are environmentally-friendly, then it would mean that nature has found a new way to limit the damage humanity does.

But plastic contains numerous toxins, and the bacteria may be introducing those into the food chain by feeding on it and then becoming food for larger organism.

A Dog Saved Its Owner From Tsunami !

A loyal dog—a 12-year-old Shih-Tzu—rescued the life of its 83-year-old owner during the March 11 earthquake. The dog, Babu, insisted on going for a walk and dragged its owner Tami Akanuma outside. The dog stubbornly headed for a nearby hill rather than taking their usual route in the coastal city of Miyako. Akanuma decided to follow her dog and in doing so, she was spared from the tsunami which slammed into the town minutes after she hiked uphill. The torrent flattened the district of Taro-Kawamukai which was 200 meters from the coast, where they lived. “Babu might have sensed a tsunami was coming,” said Akanuma.

Akanuma was relaxing in her living room when the quake struck off the Tohoku coast. The lights went out and Babu started scampering around the room, whimpering loudly and madly wagging her tail.

“It’s a bit early for a walk,” she thought, but Babu’s insistence got her to go outside anyway. “We need to evacuate,” Akanuma recalled thinking. As soon as she opened the door, Babu frantically ran outside and headed toward a nearby hill–the opposite direction they usually go for a walk. When Akanuma’s pace slackened, Babu would look back, seemingly urging her owner to walk faster. When Akanuma caught up, Babu would bound ahead again, straining at her leash. This game of hurry-up-and-catch-me continued over and over.

When Akanuma finally took a breather, she had climbed the hill where an evacuation center is located about one kilometer from her home.

Turning around, Akanuma could barely believe her eyes: Most of the route she and Babu had walked had been swallowed up by the tsunami and her home had been consumed by the wall of muddy water. Akanuma believes her pooch could tell something was wrong that day. As soon as they went outside, Babu ran frantically for the hills, in the opposite direction of where they usually go for walks, and Akanuma had no choice but to follow.

Babu and Akanuma are currently staying with 60 other survival locals at a hall being used as a shelter.
