Craigslist Joe

Craigslist Joe is an amazing documentary about a man who relies solely on the kindness and generosity of people from Craigslist for an entire month. Watch the trailer to see his mind blowing experience.

After watching this movie, I began pondering just how people are able to trust someone they met on Craigslist. As I was searching for the movie on youtube, I also found the “Craigslist Killer”.  That seems more like what I would expect from relying on an online community. Yet, the man in this documentary meets a multitude of people who are just looking for someone to talk to during a long car ride, some help cleaning up space (mentally and physically), a person to give a free service to (like a dance class), or just a head to give a free hair cut too.

What are your thoughts? Could you do what this man did?

NBA Player Isaiah Austin Gets a Job Offer

Isaiah Austin, Former Baylor Center.

Former Baylor Center Isaiah Austin has a world of opportunity on his hands. Commissioner Adam Silver has guaranteed Austin a job once he finishes up his degree. A job offer after graduating is good news, but not that atypical. What is special about this case is an athlete being respected both ON the court and OFF the court. Hoorah for Austin! In addition the offer from Silver, Austin also has an offer from his former Baylor Coach, Scott Drew.

Austin has dedicated years of hard work and training to the sport of basketball; it is satisfying to know he will be rewarded even after he stops playing. What do you think?

Technology at its Finest

Ebeling traveled to Sudan in October 2013, and used a 3-D printer to fabricate a prosthetic arm for Daniel.

Mick Ebeling, founder of Not Impossible Labs and the Ebeling Group, has gone above and beyond to help those affected by the Sudanese government’s bombing raids. Ebeling stumbled upon the story of a boy in Sudan who had lost both of his arms to an explosion. At 12 years old, Daniel had avoiding losing his life to a bomb by wrapping himself around a tree. Without his arms, he had lost his will to live. Ebeling set out to create a 3-D printer for a prosthetic arm for Daniel.

The moment when Daniel used his printed arm to feed himself for the first time in two years.


Gathering knowledge from many professionals and experts, Ebeling successfully landed in Sudan with the tools to help. Daniel had gone without arms for two years before the prosthetic arm came about his way. Ebeling and Daniel worked countless hours fitting a prosthetic arm to him, but finally did. Ebeling explains that Daniel showed his first glimpse of happiness when he was able to feed himself for the first time in 2 years.


To make the project sustainable, Ebeling taught locals to 3-D print, so they could make arms and hands for other amputees.


Having helped one person, Ebeling has actually helped many more. Before he left Sudan, Ebeling gathered around the locals and carefully taught them how to use the 3-D printer. Many of the people had never seen a computer. With just as much perseverance as Ebeling had with coming to help, the locals, however, soaked in the information and set out to help other amputees.

Life is Abundant!

I like to think that life is abundant and that everything and everyone around me is at peace. Life is good. “Pain is natures way of telling me I am off course,” I believe.  While I am not one to refuse medical care, I am a firm believer in addressing the cause of a problem in addition to treating the symptoms. For example, I have incredibly high blood pressure and am taking medicine for it. I believe my hypertension is a symptom of a bigger issue inside of me. Therefore, while my blood pressure is safely down because of the medicine I take, I am addressing how I deal with stress. Sure, perhaps hypertension runs in my family, but could holding in emotions and not releasing stress in a healthy manner also run in the family?

Dog Saved from Cliff

Ever had a dog who ran out of the house to catch a cat and then found itself utterly lost once it chased the cat up into a tree? Oreo, a Black Labrador Retriever, was seen on a seaside cliff in Northern California. Rescue officials say she was halfway down the 90-foot cliff before she was seen. At first, workers attempted to lure the animal back up the cliff with treats. Oreo was not interested, therefore Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department retrieved their “Henry1” Helicopter was sent down in a second attempt to retrieve the dog. Stubborn, Oreo would only agree to be saved once the sheriff’s deputy personally attached a rope to Oreo’s harness and pulled him to safety. A joyous applause broke out from a crowd of beachgoers once the dog was safely brought back to land.

Oreo was happily reunited with his owner. The video  can be found here.
