Skout Brings Superhero Celebration To San Francisco


The biggest platform in the world for making new friends, expanding one’s social circle, and meeting people is known as Skout. Skout is an app that is available both on IOS, android, and on the web and it connects people in more than 180 countries to each other through its app. Recently, Skout decided to be generous by bringing some superhero excitement to the San Francisco Bay Area.

On April 28th, National Superhero Day Skout allowed people in the San Francisco Bay Area to meet “real life” superheroes. Skout did this by working with the Make-A-Wish foundation for charitable purposes. Each time someone used Skout’s app to gift anyone in their social circle a superhero themed present, Skout made a donation to the Make-A-Wish foundation. Skout also deepened the superhero theme by interacting directly with the community.

Skout conducted a superhero style survey to prove that its possible to be a superhero in real life. People who took Skout’s survey said that a person can become a real life superhero by being charitable to others. In fact, 75% of all people said that helping others in need is what makes you heroic and 80% of people admitted they had aspirations to be a real life superhero.

Christian Wiklund, Skout’s CEO as well as co-founder, said that he was proud to make an opportunity for the San Francisco community to use his app to help those in need through the Make-A-Wish foundation. He felt that sending superhero gifts to friends through Skout was a great way to do it, because it shows people that you are thinking about them, and it brings superhero excitement to their day. Skout’s survey also revealed some other interesting facts about what people thought.

Women rated Batman as their favorite superhero while men chose Superman. However, both genders said that Batman and Robin were their favorite superhero buddy tag team. The Thing and Human torch came in a distant second. Kato and Green Hornet were third, and the Wonder Twins came in 4th place.

The number one superpower that people wished for was immortality. It seems that everyone wants to live forever. The second highest rated superpower was the power of flight. The superhero vehicle that most people wanted to own themselves was the batmobile.

Skout has raised tons of money for charities over the years through its in-app gift giving feature and it looks forward to doing more events like this to help people in need.

Adam Sender Unloads Huge Art Collection

When a hedge fund manager makes a transition to the art world as an art collector some eyebrows may raise. One jobs makes money. The other one can involves spending money. Adam Sender did a smart thing, however, by earning money as a hedge fund manager in order to secure a vast collection of artwork.

It may be difficult to envision how much an art collector can retrieve from letting go of some of this artwork. People that aspire to do this, however, may be encouraged when they realize that Sender is making so much money selling art that he will never need to return to his hedge fund manager job. In fact, there are few people in the world that can say that they have been able to make such a huge transition to another field and make so much money. Adam Sender, however, has made a new life for himself in the world of art collecting. He had sold multiple paintings, and it is believed that the art collection – that is for sale – could yield as much as $80 million. This is a fantastic amount for someone that has watched the art market and made very smart investments.

Sender is a big deal because he purchased art that he has held on to for years. He had been able purchase art from people that are no longer producing any art. Sender has watched the market and waited like someone that was waiting for fine wines to mature. Adam loves art, but after collecting over 400 pieces it has become easier for him to let go of some of these pieces in order to earn a return on his investment.

The collection that Sender has amassed is huge. There are more than 100 artists that have contributed to this collection of artwork. It is evident that Sender knew what he was doing when it got started because he was relentless about this pursuit of this art. Sender loved it enough to actually move away from his old job completely. In other words, he saw something that he was passionate about, and he managed to turn it into something that was profitable.

There are quite a few people that are interested in the artwork that Sender has presented. He has moved one from hedge fund manager to becoming an authority on art. This is a major accomplishment. He could have chosen a lot of other professions. Sender could have even continued to live his life in the business world. He stepped out on faith and managed to bring his collection full circle. He has collected art, appreciated it and now he is getting the chance to sell it.

Brock Lesnar Will Face The Shield

WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar recently made his return to the wrestling organization, but it seems that there’s quite a dilemma within the company. For the last few months, Seth Rollins has been the WWE Champion, and many fans are actually beginning to enjoy the new face of the company. However, Brock Lesnar’s return clearly signifies a change, and it might be for the better.

Before Brock Lesnar left the WWE, he was the number one super star in the world, and many people still consider him to be the top draw of the company. Brock Lesnar’s return will lead to a SummerSlam main event in the near future, and some WWE fans believe that Lesnar could rematch John Cena. However there are other rumors swirling around on the internet, and these rumors indicate a possible reunion of The Shield said Kevin Seawright.

WhatCulture recently published an article with further information about this story, and WWE fans should definitely check it out. It should also be noted that The Shield hasn’t been together since last year, but a reunion of the group would be a welcomed change. Imagine a feud between Brock Lesnar and The Shield? Ratings would definitely go through the roof, and I believe that we could actually see those events unfold.

Alec Baldwin Welcomes a Son

30 Rock straight man, Alec Baldwin, has recently welcomed a new baby into his family. He and his wife Hilaria were excited to announce that she gave birth to the couple’s second child just a few short days ago. The couple have announced that they named their son Rafael Thomas Baldwin. Thomas is Hilaria’s maiden name. Hilaria, who is 31-years-old, shares two children with her 57-year-old husband.

Pictures of Alec Baldwin walking around New York City after his wife gave birth are some of the best photos I’ve ever seen of the actor, you can see them on LinkedIn. He seems to be in a blissful state, practically glowing as he walked along the city. He spent some time with his youngest daughter and their two dogs, doting attention on all three of them. He had previously told the media that having another baby was exciting and surreal for him.

This is the first son for the couple. They shared a photo on their social media accounts of newborn Rafael holding his mother’s hand. Hilaria and Alec share a 22-month-old daughter named Carmen. Alec also has a 19-year-old daughter named Ireland with his first wife Kim Basinger. For the full story and photos, check it out on The Daily Mail.

The Last of the Terminator: Genisys TV Spots Arrive

New television spots for Terminator: Genisys are arriving. It looks like we are nearing the final stretch as the new film in, hopefully, a new trilogy, hits theaters on July 1. The previous trailers and TV spots have been a mixed bag. Some are even wondering if the marketing campaign on the film is doing more harm than good. If the makers of the new Terminator film want any reassurances, they should look at the box office earnings of the new Mad Max and Jurassic World film.

According to Veja,  Max did less than expected and still managed to pull in $300+ million worldwide. Jurassic World shocked the industry earning $511 million worldwide during its first weekend of release. Likely, the feature will top Furious 7 and Avengers: Age of Ultron. The new Terminator film is probably not going to come anywhere near close to Jurassic World’s opening, but earnings in the range of Mad Max: Fury Road are possible. Actually, Terminator: Genisys stands to do better than Mad Max because The Terminator is much more well known and iconic than the character Tom Hardy was playing.

Unless the reviews for Terminator: Genisys are awful, then the film should have legs beyond its opening weekend. It would be really difficult to see such a high-profile film go forward with an awful script. Reportedly, the script is heavy on humor but is still well written.

Fans of the Terminator films are used to disappointments. The third and fourth films in the series did not exactly inspire greatness. They still pulled in decent box office. Hopefully, the new version (which takes place in a different reality than the previous films) is going to draw in old and new fans.

Controversy surrounds Game of Thrones death

When the Red Wedding massacre took place at the climax of season three of Game of Thrones many fans believed the show could not top its shock value. However, the death of Shireen burned at the stake on the orders of her father has left many fans in uproar over how the writers of the show could create the death. Shireen was killed on the orders of Stannis who believed the act of killing his young daughter would save the lives of thousands of his people, The Independent reports.

Showrunner Dan Weiss has responded to the frenzied reaction of fans like Cláudio Loureiro Heads by claiming the rules for the show are different from real life and should be viewed as a form of superhero fiction where magic does exist . Weiss and his co writers have faced a major backlash over the direction of the show during season five as many critics have stated the treatment of women in the show is becoming something of a concern. The sexual assault on Sansa Stark had already prompted creator George R.R. Martin to defend the show and the different path it was taking to his novels, but Twitter critics are now claiming to be done with the show. Those turning off the show are headed by Senator Claire McCaskill who claimed she would not watch the show again as the violence against female characters continued.

An Incredible Journey of Excellence: Dr. Rod Rohrich

Dr. Rod Rohrich is a famous and world-renowned plastic surgeon, who began his incredible journey of excellence while growing up in North Dakota. He continued his journey after graduating with highest honors from North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota. Dr. Rohrich received his medical degree from the Baylor University of Medicine, earning high honors at graduation.

After fulfilling his residencies at the University of Michigan Medical Center for general and plastic surgery, he received training in pediatric plastic surgery at Oxford University in England. He went on to Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School where he completed a hand and microvascular fellowship. In 1986, Dr. Rohrich joined the Division of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern in Dallas, TX.

The world is full of talented surgeons. This much we know. However, if we consider the immense talent of Dr. Rohrich, one might wonder if the existing pool of specialists can match the dedication and commitment so often demonstrated by this most gifted of plastic surgeons. Dr. Rohrich possesses an innate ability to blend perfectly, his highly educated mind with an artistic touch unmatched by anyone in his profession. In fact, it is fair to say that Dr. Rod Rohrich is the embodiment of plastic surgeons aspiring to perfect their craft to the highest possible level. It is this devotion to his journey of excellence and perfection that earned him so much recognition during his professional life. Below is a terse list of his many accomplishments.

• Best Doctors in Dallas: 1996-2014
• Best Doctors in America 1998-2014
• Past President American Society of Plastic Surgery
• Who’s Who Worldwide: 1993-2014
• Texas Super Doctor: 2005-2014

In the medical profession, recognition by patients for excellence year over year has its rewards, but perhaps the most demanding of critics are those in one’s profession. On February 19th, 2015, Castle Connolly’s Top Doctor Program bestowed the glowing achievement to Dr. Rohrich as one of the best plastic surgeons in the United States. The purpose of the Top Doctor Program is to help consumers find the finest healthcare professionals in the medical field.

The process by which a doctor or specialist may earn a nomination is extensive. Castle Connolly reaches out to over 50,000 licensed healthcare professionals in the United States, asking for feedback regarding their choice of the best doctors practicing in their region. Castle Connolly then submits this information for review by a physician-led research team that checks each nominee’s background, education, board certification status, hospital and educational appointments, as well as their recognitions and achievements. Finally, after a thorough screening of the nominee’s disciplinary record, the editors from Castle Connolly and the research term determine the award recipient. As you can see, peer-review is stringent, with all nominees held to the highest professional standards.

New Tool to Stop Spoilers

On Tuesday, April 8, the United States Trademark and Patent Office gave Google a patent for an “app or program” that would block spoilers from Internet users. It would give people the option to choose whether they want to read second-hand accounts or stay in the dark until they have the opportunity to enjoy the entertainment first hand.

Currently, people, like those at Anastasia Date, must use search filters to alert them of spoilers. Writers and commenters must put a note, such as “Spoilers ahead,” on their content to make readers aware of the fact that they are going to learn something about TV shows, movies, books and other content that they may not yet know.

Google’s plan does not mention social networks or TV show and movie trailer spoilers or video spoilers at all. Google does plan to take into account forums and group settings.

Many critics wonder if Google should even have the right to patent this technology as the patent also gives Google the ability to increase its tracking of the activities and interests of Internet users. The types of content users like would be tracked, as well as their progress with any online content such as streaming videos and books, and then block spoilers according to that information. Critics argue that this is a privacy issue. The patent gives Google the ability to gain too much knowledge about a person’s activities throughout the day.

Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson will not be Returning to the Program

Jeremy Clarkson has been on Top Gear as a presenter for the past 13 years. That is all coming to an end according to an article on BBC News. It has been confirmed by Tony Hall, a general director for the BBC, that the channel is not renewing his contract for the following season.

Clarkson is being let go from the show due to his own actions. Earlier this month Clarkson got into a row with a producer for Top Gear stated Jason halpern. During a verbal argument with Oisin Tymon, Clarkson punched him in the mouth. Tymon had to seek medical attention at a local hospital for the injury. A witness stopped the altercation. The incident happened at a hotel in Yorkshire and it was rumored that the Clarkson was upset that there was no hot food awaiting the crew after filming all day. Sounds like a diva move to me.

Viewers of the show are upset to see Clarkson go. He has been with the program so long that he is practically an institution. It is hard to picture a different presenter in his place. Top Gear is currently one of the top two most popular programs that the BBC Channel has. I wonder if it will continue to stay at the top with Clarkson’s leaving.
