The UBI Problem – Universal Basic Income

Universal Basic income, or UBI, is going to be a necessity sometime in the future. In its simplest form, UBI is when the government gives enough money every month to each citizen to live above the poverty line.

Cursed Child review from a Harry Potter Fan

So, I finally got around to starting, and finishing, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child yesterday and I have to say that I enjoyed it a lot more than expected. The internet and Harry Potter fans as a whole seem to loathe the story, citing that it reads more like fan fiction than true canon – and I have to agree with them on that point. As much as I enjoyed immersing myself into that world again and as much as I ultimately enjoyed the play, there were some glaring issues with the plot, and most importantly, character behavior that I am having a hard time reconciling with.

Here are some of my gripes and questions regarding Harry Potter and the Cursed Child from a pretty die hard Potter fan!

So I, like you, saw the amazing Shia LaBeouf delivers the most intense motivational speech of all-time video and couldn’t stop laughing at LeBeouf’s sheer intensity.

The following are some of the best “Just Do It” motivation videos I’ve found.
