AGE DELAY

Oh, if I could talk to my 27-year-old selfie... okay, so we didn't have those back then.  In my early 20s, it represented the perfect age. Surely all of my life pursuits would be met by then, I said! I'd have a fantastic career (free of things like job loss), married (like every other Texas 20-something), and be living the good old American dream (of course, that meant owning a house).

#QUAKE: WAY TO GO UC BERKELEY

It's 10 seconds, but it's a start! This ShakeAlert project is from the UC Berkeley seismic lab. While not a prediction, it gave the lab a 10 second warning of shaking arrival from nearby SF quake. Scientists still can't predict quakes, but any kind of warning is a good thing.

#PHOTOBOMB: OOPS!

Here is proof you can never have too many eyes on a TV promo photo (or a television show for that matter.) Things can slip through, be it a typo in a graphic, a logo that's a no-no, or a word that needed a bleep or strikethrough. And in this case the snafu comes down to a plastic bottle turned photobomb on the set of a Downton Abbey photo shoot.

#Hollywood: Fights For Film

We may be in a new digital age, made up of quicktime files, H.264, and terabytes, but let's not forget what came before, what it brought us and what we can still learn from it.

#SPACE: Moonwalker to Mars

So how cool is former astronaut Buzz Aldrin!  The second man to walk on the moon, and one of only twelve people ever to do so,  is heading up a new social media campaign to remember the Apollo 11 mission.

#CARCANDY: deep in the heart of tesla

Texas is the land of big trucks, big hair and, more important to this story, big oil. Considering all of the resources that go into all that, I feel perfectly comfortable saying that efforts to save energy, get better fuel economy and otherwise "go green" haven't exactly taken off quickly in my native home state. (Composting is considered a foreign word here.) So it's a little more than ironic that electric car maker Tesla is reportedly eyeing Dallas as a site for its new $5B gigafactory.

#TV: Calling $30K Millionaires

Get ready Dallas! $30,000 Millionaires, a new reality TV show, could soon be filming in the Big D! A casting call is now underway for the series and if producers find just the right players, the show could indeed become reality. Indeed, finding the right cast is essential to the success of a show and whether it gets picked up by a Network.  It's all about dynamics, personalities and finding that perfect mix of characters.
