Alternatives to Cable TV

Do you have Cable TV through Comcast or Charter? Are you paying too much? Are there too many channels that you don’t watch?

Recently, I’ve seen commercials for Sling TV. Have you ever used this?  https://www.sling.com   It sounds like it might be a good deal. You pick a basic Orange or Blue package, You can also combine them, and then you add-on what I will call “by Category”…i.e…News, Movies, etc.  I like that idea. Also, no contracts and you can cancel anytime.

But how is the picture quality? And the Sound?  This is internet-based TV, rather than cable. Do you think Sling TV would be better than Netflix? Cheaper? Better than Hulu? Besides Sling TV, I have also heard about something called ROKU. Looks like more alternatives to cable TV are becoming available, but which is best for price, picture and sound quality, amount of channels?

Empathy, Helping, Serving others & the Internet

Do you believe in Empathy? Compassion? “being of service to others”? Yes? Those things are “all the rage” these days. And so I ask: Have you noticed? For all of the importance and value so many people put on those things, consider this:

Not so many years ago, if someone else asked you if you knew of any website, book, or article that they could read that would inform them more about Whatever topic, you would have likely said: Oh, you should read the book (insert book title here), or go to the website _____________.  That–would have been “being of service” or helpful to others, or maybe even compassionate.

But today, people largely don’t do that. Instead, people just say: Google it. Or—“look it up”. You’re on your own. No one cares. “Look it up” is the answer to everything.

Ha! So much for “having empathy” Or “being of service”.  As if “sharing knowledge” and “being helpful” has gone out of style.  Even though people can’t stop talking about how important it all is in so many other spiritual ways, and in business, or school, or everyday life. Yeah, right.
