Which is the Origin of Kabbalah?

There may be no one knowing the source of Kabbalah. It is of the ancient times, and it got lost in time, mythology and space. It is just like other marvels that exist in the world today such as Tarot and chess. Those who are experienced Kabbalists have a belief that the basics of the spiritual system initially began on the banks of Nile River in Egypt and that happened in the past. It is said that Moses is the one who was responsible for the transformation of the wisdom and knowledge in Exodus. He did this so that he can build a society that was modern and enlightened.

Afterward, the Jewish throughout the centuries continued to practice Kabbalah. It was practiced as a branch of Judaism. The aim was to get the questions that were not addressed by Torah regulations and practices answered. At the time, there was orthodox that was deeply rooted in the society, and they would accuse the Kabbalists false thoroughly. That explains why the Kabbalist did their training in secret and later would present their teachings in the form of esoteric Bible interpretations. As you may know from history, there are spiritual and esoteric sects that have always been hunted by the mainstream religions. Such include Muslims and some Christians.

There is the traditional creation story of Kabbalah. The story relates to Adam and says that he received Kabbalah wisdom after he fell from Eden. He received the manual that explained to him how to be able to go back to heaven, and that is the Kabbalah. Afterward, Adam passed the knowledge and wisdom to his sons, and it continued to be passed from generation to generations. Finally, the understanding reached Adam and some Kabbalists have a belief that Abraham was the one responsible for writing the first Kabbalist book which is called Safer Yetzirah or the formation book.

It is believed that Moses later received the Kabbalah Centre on Mount Sinai. It is believed he received it directly from God. There was then oral transmission from one generation to other thanks to the brilliant leaders who could not be deterred by the community who had negative thoughts about them.

Support of End Citizens United Mission Revolutionizes Reform Efforts

In March 2015 there was a revolution of change created by End Citizens United organization.

The non-profit organization will be the first to combat campaign finance reform since the U.S. Supreme Court 5-4 ruling. The ruling on endcitizensunited.org was in direct contrast to the bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2003. The court’s decision broadens the laws governing contributions received by politicians.

The mission for End Citizens United is to have that ruling overturned.

End Citizens United formed an alliance with U.S. voters to bring change to the political system by assuring there will be campaign finance reform. At the core of their mission is to bring transparency and accountability to the political process. They have set out to stop corporations and billionaires from infiltrating an already rigged and imbalanced system.

Supporters of the mission are enormous in size and in voice. U.S. citizens came together principally to make sure democracy is upheld in America. The approximately 325,000 supporters on endcitizensunited.org that began in 2015 will grow to four million this year. It is believed that 78% of Americans believe the Supreme Court’s decision should be overturned. The support received is completely bipartisan.

The task of bringing change to the political system on Facebook has built momentum and the past election season has only fueled the continued support.

In order to transform the system, End Citizens United has aligned its mission of reform to putting an end to electing politicians that do not support campaign finance reform. It is an essential part of their agenda for changing the landscape of the political process.

End Citizens United is setting the bar high for the organization by maintaining their ethical and integrity standards with how they have reached out to the supporters to attain their goal. End Citizens United believes that it has received an out-pouring of continuous support of their mission because U.S. citizens have seen it as the reality-check that is needed in the political system.

End Citizens United describes what has occurred in the political systems as a “fundamental erosion of our democracy.” They’ve lead a steadfast charge against a system they believe is completely vulnerable to the highest bidder for a politician. They want to put an end to the unrestricted flow of money into elections. The organization is determined in helping citizens stand up to politicians by continuing the movement.

Donations for the organization continue to surpass expectations for any grass roots organization of its kind. The initial pledged donations reached in the millions for End Citizens United and it is highly expected to reach $30 million this year.

The efforts by End Citizens United will not only bring reform, but it will have shown what supporters can accomplish when the cause is greater for many, than the power is for a few.

“The Flash” Film Script Being Rewritten

The Flash is set to be the sixth movie in the DC Extended Universe, released sometime in 2018. The franchise is already off to a rocky start with its first three films (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad) having limited success, and this story, starring Ezra Miller as the super-fast superhero Barry Allen, ironically keeps on stalling when it should be gaining traction.

 

The film has already been through two directors: Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa, who also worked together to write the script. Variety is now reporting that Warner Bros. is getting it redone by Joby Harold.

 

It’s hard to judge what this means from Harold’s limited credentials, but 2007’s Awake, which he wrote and directed, was successful. He has also written King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Robin Hood, which are set for release this year and next, respectively.

 

Little is known about the script as it stands, except that Famuyiwa’s version also included the superhero Cyborg.

 

Miller already had brief cameos as the Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. He is set to appear in this year’s Justice League prior to his own film. He also plays Credence Barebone in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them; some speculate that production of its sequel may push The Flash back even further.

 

Scary text messages sent by ex-girlfriends

 

Sending text messages can be a lot of fun. It is a time to send memes, jokes and share other secrets. When sending a message you get one opportunity. Once you hit that send button the message is gone and it is up to the receiver to decode the message. Messages can end up being funny or scary if there is a typo in the message or the person receiving messages did not get the intended response.

Sometimes after there is an argument in a relationship there can be some scary messages being sent back and forth. Here are some examples of crazy ex-girlfriends sending crazy texts:

Girl: “I miss you. I was wrong.”
Guy: “This is an auto response. The guy you are trying to reach spent three months after the break-up praying to receive this text, followed by three months accepting it would never come. The six months after that were spent dating other girls. It worked. You are too late. and he blocked you.”

This was the ultimate savage response by the guy or could be his new girl answering for him. It is scary because you have no idea how the crazy ex will retaliate next.

Girl: “I need to tell you something.”
Boy: “what’s up babe”
Girl: “I broke your Xbox.”
Boy: “What!??”
Girl: “JK I am cheating on you.”
Boy: “So my Xbox is ok, right?”

This is scary because the girl is unstable and will do anything to get your attention. She also sounds untrustworthy and violent.  She has more crazy twists than the Orlando roller coaster accident.

Will Sasha Survive Actor’s “Star Trek” Role?

Good news for Sonequa Martin-Green: she’s going to be playing “Number One,” the protagonist of the new Star Trek: Discovery series. However, fans wonder if this is bad news for her Walking Dead character Sasha Williams—can the actress realistically maintain roles in both shows at once?

 

Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple seems to think so.

 

“Sonequa Martin-Green can do anything. I’ve seen her battle a horde of walkers [zombies] this year while simultaneously battling a stomach flu that would have had most people crying in the dirt,” he quipped. “She can fulfill the duties of a Lieutenant Commander on a Constitution-class starship whilst battling walkers, Saviors, and whatever gets in Sasha’s way.”

 

He notes that he has had to work around actors’ schedules before without resorting to killing their characters off, such as with Corey Hawkins, who plays Heath in the recent seasons while also starring in 24: Legacy.

 

Still, The Walking Dead is a show where just about any character can die, so Sasha’s fans should never be too sure of her safety.

 

Star Trek: Discovery comes after the franchise has long been dormant on television, though the most recent reboot movies have been successful. It will air on CBS All Access, a video-on-demand streaming service. Unusually, Martin-Green’s character is the protagonist but not the captain of the titular ship.

 

The Walking Dead‘s seventh season resumes on AMC February 12, 2017.

Celebrity Social Media Campaigns Try To Turn Support Against President-Elect Trump

Some media campaigns can be highly successful, and when famous faces get on board, the results can be incredible.

 

Trying to push President-elect Donald Trump off his high horse, however, has proven to be quite the challenging effort by anti-Trump celebrities. There have been a number of social media efforts to deny him the seat of president that were initiated before last November’s presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Some of these campaigns also came post-election, when the world of Hollywood was stupefied that the former secretary of state could lose to a brash businessman with zero public service experience.

 

For example, longtime actor and democratic activist Martin Sheen lent his famous face for a public service announcement pleading with electors in the Electoral College to not cast their vote for Trump. Strangely enough, Hillary Clinton had more Electoral College defectors than did Donald Trump.

 

The latest social media campaign has been established by Humanity for Progress, which had previously gone by the name, Humanity for Hillary, a pro-Hillary for President organization. According to their Facebook, Humanity for Progress says they are “a community for justice, equality and progress that wants more women & people of color in higher office.”

 

The campaign has enlisted the help of celebrities, asking supporters to use their individual rights and power to stand up to Trump by signing a MoveOn.org petition to be sent to members of Congress.

 

Famous people like Rosie Perez, Sally Field, Steve Buscemi and others, are calling on Congress to ‘vigorously oppose’ President-elect Donald Trump in any “racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, anti-worker, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, anti-environmental policies.”

 

The new social media campaign can be watched here on YouTube. It’s titled, #StanUpForUs and lasts 1 minute and 49 seconds.

 

President-elect Trump has not commented thus far.

 

NASA’s Out-of-This-World Social Media Game

There is no doubt that NASA has enhanced its social media skills within the past few years. Perhaps this should come as no surprise; after all, some of the most exciting news in the universe is coming to us courtesy of the most famous aeronautical agency in the world. This time around, the team managed to generate a lot of buzz by comparing the physical performance of two brothers. Astronauts Mark Kelly and Scott Kelly happen to be twins, which only adds to the fun.

 

This time, it was Scott who was in space and Mark who remained grounded on our planet. Throughout the year, NASA reported all of the differences in their bodies as they went about their days. Although it may seem like a fun experiment designed for social media fun, the results are actually being used for some very important research on how the human body reacts to the environment of space.

 

After all, if we are going to start making major moves to get to Mars—which is a two-year journey—it is imperative that we study some of these health factors. Twitter users couldn’t get enough. of the Kelly brothers’ comparisons, making NASA’s social media campaign very popular. With 2017 in full swing now, it should be fascinating to see what else NASA is going to do in order to capture the fickle attention spans of social media users.

 

With some of the best photos and state-of-the-art technology in the world, of course, it seems like social media campaigns from NASA are set up for success.

 

How Social Media Predicted America’s Next President

Media houses were so sure of Hillary’s win (they even vouched for her) until Trump hit the square in the face with a massive victory. Every news hub was shocked, so were the analysts they hired daily to bash each other in irate debates. But do you know who got it right all along?—Social media.

 

After Trump’s win, it was evident that news rooms were looking in the wrong places. Expert social media analysts only had to gauge the temperature on social websites to predict the outcome from a mile away. Trump new this secret all too well, and he maximized it to his advantage.

 

While the Hillary camp spent millions printing banners, erecting offices and burning gas money on the road to win more states, Trump only focused on social media. He infiltrated sites like Facebook and Twitter with his campaigns. And guess what he used to grow his social media followership? Yes, the very leaked video of his supposed ‘locker room talk’.

 

More people subscribed to Trump’s social media accounts to follow his responses to the alleged leaked tape. Just like that, he grew his followership which boosted his social campaign further. Then Donald Trump dealt his last card, delivering a very sobering response on the last debate which saw people warm up to him after all. Likes and shares translated into votes and Hillary Clinton had to make that last phone call to him eventually.

 

Interesting though is that a lot of the so called analytic experts still don’t believe in the power of social media. But if the US election is anything to go by, social media campaigns do garner popularity—and votes.

 

 

Keeping Pace With the Latest Social Media Marketing Trends

Social media continues to play a central important role in online marketing strategies and advertising campaigns. Businesses that fail to take heed of the latest marketing trends may find themselves hard pressed to obtain the level and quality of results they are seeking to enjoy with online promotional efforts. With shifting consumer trends and the implementation of new marketing tools, tactics and resources, businesses would be wise to keep an eye on the latest social media marketing trends in order to ensure that they do not fall behind the times.

 

Marketing Strategies Continue to Focus on Mobile Devices

 

The following cost and growing sophistication of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices has made them a real game-changer when it comes to how consumers choose to do business. Marketing efforts, even those that utilize social-media sites and platforms, that fail to target mobile users effectively are quickly becoming a real liability. From marketing content suitable for sharing over social-media sites and services to more conventional promotional efforts, such as banner ads and promotional media, the recent trend of marketing strategies that place greater emphasis on mobile users is one that businesses would do well to consider.

 

Consumers Continue to Take Issue With Intrusive Marketing Techniques

 

Today’s consumers are growing more and more intolerant of promotional efforts that are seen as being intrusive or too aggressive. Businesses that push their message too far using social-media marketing techniques continue to spark resentment among potential customers and prospective clients. Current and future marketing trends are expected to utilize content sharing and even more conventional and overt promotional efforts that are calibrated to be less abrasive or that have been packaged in order to highlight their relevance in order to ensure potential customers have a more positive response.
