wanderingsalsero's insight:

I'm still evenly divided on whether I prefer RebelMouse over Scoop.it.  I actually might lead toward Scoop.it except they make you pay extra to use Scoop.it AS your bog (and redirect the domain name).  With RebelMouse, you can embedd the whoe page onto a WP platform.

 

Regardless, I with more Salsa Club owners, studio owners would start curating with Scoop.it and/or RM.  It would make it a lot easier for their PR efforts too.

Scoop.it is a tremendous resource that enables you to establish yourself as an AUTHORITY figure very quickly.
Robert A. Kearse's comment, March 24, 2013 12:43 PM
Oops. Didn't finish above comment. There can be egocentric benefits to authority status or monetary benefits. Whichever is a priority, the potential benefits are huge.
Tom Hood's curator insight, December 21, 2013 9:49 AM

I had privilege of introducing Guillaume at the. association DigitalNow. Conference a few years ago and have been a fan of his and Scoop.it ever since. The  idea of content-community-curation is one that I think is important as we look ahead to 2014.

Come explore the red-hot entrepreneurship scene in Bangkok

Come explore the red-hot entrepreneurship scene in Bangkok | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
March 2, 2015
Bangkok, Thailand

Whenever I land in Bangkok, I instantly feel the buzz. This is a city that’s alive, unlike any other in the world.

Commerce is everywhere and sometimes it feels that the whole city is one big marketplace.

Bangkok is known across the world for its exhilara
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I almost don't know how to take this news. I always used to like Bangkok but I've heard so much bad press about it lately, especially the crime situation, that I pretty much written it off. I suppose like so many things it all depends on whether you're making enough money to live 'above' the bad part.

Prayers to God in wrong spot?

Prayers to God in wrong spot? | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
A Free Press For A Free People Since 1997
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I think this theory about the real location of the 2nd Jewish Temple makes perfect sense. It's easy to believe that Satin would want as many people as possible to be  deceived but it also should be easy to understand that not everybody would be expected to be receptive to the real truth. Even the Jews can't really be expected to know the real location because they didn't even recognize the real Christ. So why would they be expected to be any smarter about the location of the destroyed temple?

South Korea’s Keynesian Experiment Goes Global

South Korea’s Keynesian Experiment Goes Global | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
South Korea engages in central planning of economy.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

How come nobody mentions the S.Korean economy when they talk about global economic crises? Sure, it seems solid now. But... is it really?

 

As this article points out, look what happened to Japan over the last 20 years. They went from super-child to accident-waiting-to-happen.

 

This is a good article. For example, did you know that Samsung is 20% of S.Korea GDP? I didn't .... and I find it interesting (if not dangerous sounding).

How Skype and Viber Mobile VoIP Apps Stack Up

How Skype and Viber Mobile VoIP Apps Stack Up | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
Skype vs. Viber: Which is Better? Comparison Between Skype and Viber Apps for Smartphones
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Since I bought my very first smartphone only slightly before leaving the UAE and since I bought another smartphone here in Barranquilla, Colombia which came with What'sApp on it and since a Filipina I recently talked to said she had Viber on her phone....I decided to look for some comparisons between Viber and Skype just now.

 

Here's an article I found which leads me to believe that I'll probably be able to use both...i.e. if Viber takes less bandwidth that Skype like the article says.

Support Waning, Romney Decides Against 2016 Bid

Support Waning, Romney Decides Against 2016 Bid | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
By not pursuing a third presidential bid, Mitt Romney frees up scores of donors and operatives who had been awaiting his decision.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I have two or three thoughts here. 

 

First of all, I can see here the the NWO money doesn't want a Christian in office. They don't want ANY kind of Christian....even a Morman.

 

Second of all....who says the election is going to be an 'either or' thing...e.g. Bush vs. Romney, or Clinton vs. Bush, or Clinton vs. whoever? I think the public is going to be very ripe for a strong economic message but the problem is that most of the 'messages' (AKA: platforms) in the past have been lies.

 

It's also very possible that the public might not want another member of the corrupt Bush Dynasty or the Clinton Dynasty. I think Rand Paul would probably have a good chance but the other big factor will be....the presstitute media.

 

A big factor will be who they promote and you know that most of them won't be 'for' anybody with any libertarian leanings....even assuming the election isn't rigged (which is a high probability).

 

And, just as an aside, don't be surprised to see attempts to stifle the alternative media during the election process. It continues to grow in influence and technical capability.

 

Remember how 'we', in the US, used to laugh at Russian elections where their candidates won by 90+%, and we'd say, "That could never happen here!" Well....it damn sure could.

Open Jihad Declared in Egypt Following State Dept. Meeting with Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders

Open Jihad Declared in Egypt Following State Dept. Meeting with Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Somebody who doesn't see or think past the obvious might look at this article and think, "Ahh, it's great that the State Department is having some success in getting together with these people!" But I see another scenario below the surface.

 

Those supposedly moderate Arabs talking to 'us' are just trolling for cash. They all know, or think, that the has loads of it. Which of course we do in the sense that we just print it whenever we need it. But those Arabs know that we do still have a lot of technology and other assets that we're stupid enough to put every other place in the world except where it really ought to go...i.e. right in our own country.

 

So, they're just playing us for patsies like most other countries have. And we'll get screwed in the end again. Don't forget that the people negotiating from our side are from the same line of crooks and thieves who go us INTO this debacle because of their lack of morals and skill.

This 16-Year-Old Built A Tiny House On Wheels

This 16-Year-Old Built A Tiny House On Wheels | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
Few high-schoolers build their own homes. Hay was only 16 when he built this 130 square foot house on a utility trailer.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I was browsing this blog from a guy I recently met online and this post caught my eye. I've always thought 'tiny houses' were cool and the fact that this one is being built by a 16 year old young man makes this one even more 'American' in spirit. 

 

I don't consider myself very handy with my hands but this is the kinds of stuff that everybody should know about....as long as the government would stay out of their way.

 

If and when this guy ever gets married, he's going to be an excellent provider because of these skills he's learning and the attitude that he has even thus far developed. His parents should be very proud of him.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

I had a local Colombian girl ask me, the other day, what I thought about Colombian women. I think she was referring to 'how pretty they are'. She said that she wanted my opinion because (she thought) I'd seen a lot of the world. 

 

Of course, there's a lot of people who've seen more of the world than I have. But I let that roll and tried to answer her question.

 

Point in, I was interested in seeing this video here because up til now I haven't actually seen this Colombian gal who won Miss Universe. What I see here sorta confirms what I already thought...

 

Specifically that most of these beauty queens aren't really 'the' most beautiful girls in...wherever. For example, I've got a picture, saved on my laptop, of an Iranian woman (I presume she's a model) who is 3X more beautiful, IMHO, than this Paulina gal.

 

Walk around in any major metropolitan city and you'll see hundreds of exquisitely beautiful women. I mean, women who really look like a Princess from another planet (e.g. that gal in John Carter of Mars). Beauty queens just get into the right 'crowd'.... that's all.

And personally I don't buy it that they cant find this guy. I mean, it's my understanding that the way they find these other fellow is by very sophisticated ELINT (Electronic Intelligence). So no... I think they want him 'out there' because it keeps 'the game' and their police state going.
