Kim Kardashian West ‘had to’ confront Tristan Thompson about Instagram block

OHMYGOSSIP — Kim Kardashian West found it “really awkward” when Tristan Thompson blocked her on Instagram.
The 37-year-old reality star shared a video last week of the basketball player – who is in a relationship with her sister Khloe Kardashian – altering his social media settings so she could see his posts again and she admitted it was a “spur-of-the-moment” decision to put him on the spot and confront him about the online rift.
She said: “I did [the video] just spur-of-the-moment. I thought about it, I was like, ‘Wait a minute, you have your phone out and this is really awkward ’cause you blocked me,’ and, ‘What’s up? We’re all in the same room again, can I get a follow, can I get an unblock at least?’”
And Kim admitted Tristan – who was accused of being unfaithful to Khloe shortly before their daughter True was born in April – didn’t know she was going to film their confrontation.
But she insisted in an interview with ‘Extra’: “I had to do it, I had to!”
The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star – who has children North, five, Saint, two, and Chicago, six months, with husband Kanye West – believes it is important to always support her family.
She said: “I was just raised, you know, that blood is thicker than water and family first, and that’s also what keeps us sane.
“When we have those family dinners and we just get to hang out and be together through all the craziness that we’ve been through, we love each other and support each other, so it’s always just fun to be together and no matter what we’ll support each other, and we know that.”
In her Instagram Story post at Khloe’s birthday party last week, Kim could be seen pointing at 27-year-old Tristan as she said: “Alright guys, so, what do you think? It’s Khloe’s birthday, do you think I should ask this guy to unblock me?”
The Canadian basketball player could be seen in the background of Kim’s video, laughing to himself and he then said: “For Khloe’s birthday, I think it’s only right.”
To which the brunette beauty replies: “I’m unblocked guys!”
Kim also joked about trying to discover the passcode to Tristan’s phone so that Khloe, 34, can keep a close eye on him.
But the professional sports star admitted: “She knows it.”

Walmart sues to block former exec from joining Amazon

WILMINGTON, Del. — Walmart has asked a court to block a former top tax executive from joining Amazon, saying the move would violate a non-compete agreement and “irreparably harm” Walmart’s business by potentially tipping off its rival to strategic plans including potential merger targets.

Instapaper to temporarily block European users, citing GDPR

TwitterFacebook

Popular bookmarking service Instapaper is temporarily closing off access to European users, as it buys time to adjust to Europe’s tough new data law.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force on Friday, has tight requirements on how companies deal with personal data. 

Businesses and companies who deal with European users are required to comply with rules on how they collect, secure, and handle their data — or face severe penalties. 

With companies racing to comply with GDPR, Instapaper users were sent an email notifying them that the service would be blocked off in Europe on Thursday — giving them less than 24 hours notice. Read more…

Don’t Block The View That You are Selling

An eat in kitchen is a must-have on many home buyers lists but in a small space, a table and chairs can cause a few problems. If the eat-in kitchen blocks a beautiful outside view or obstructs the view of the newly upgraded kitchen, this is an issue. After all, buyers are buying the view and the space, not your furniture! It is also necessary to ensure that there is always a clear path between rooms (at least 36”) and a clear path to doors that go outside. Furniture has to be as compact as possible to accommodate the traffic flow.

The solution for smaller spaces? A glass table is the answer. It doesn’t block the view and it gives you the ability to decorate on top without appearing “heavy/large” in a small space. In this space, a round table softens the very rectangular shaker style doors and the square accent details on the patio doors as well. We chose low profile chairs with minimal bases which ensures that the view is also not blocked by seat backs. Ensure that the chairs can be pushed under the table to minimize the size of the entire set. We chose to go with neutral/soft chair colors that blend in with the rest of the space and chrome bases that further modernize the kitchen and tie in the stainless steel appliances and door handles.

Before Photos:

The one thing we left out? Bar stools! In this particular case, low profile bar stools could be added to the counter top are for additional seating but to ensure great flow and keep the space from feeling to crowded, we choose to forgo those.

How Huawei forced Trump to block the Broadcom deal ever by doing nothing

Broadcom Qualcomm Deal

Broadcom’s hostile Qualcomm takeover plans hit a massive wall on Monday: Trump. The president issued an order to block the $ 117 billion Qualcomm buyout, effectively killing what could have been among the biggest tech deals in history.

It all happened over national security issues, and it all has to do with Huawei, a giant Chinese corporation whose ties to Beijing are a cause of concern among intelligence agencies. The best part about it is that Huawei did nothing to block the Qualcomm deal. Well, other than advancing 5G technology development at a rapid pace.

The Blue Wave Is Real, and It Looks Really Big—Provided Democrats Don’t Block It

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Two more districts flipped. In New Hampshire, Democrat Philip Spagnuolo won a county legislative seat by 8 percentage points in a district Donald Trump had carried by 13 points. In Connecticut, Democrat Phil Young won a state legislative seat that Hillary Clinton narrowly carried but that had been held by a Republican for the last 44 years. They make the 38th and 39th districts since Donald Trump’s election that have gone from Republican to Democrat.

So: How confident should Democrats be about all this? I’d say pretty confident, for a bunch of reasons. But let’s stick to five:

1. The generic polling has the Democrats pretty comfortably ahead. It’s been bouncing around—while Democrats have always has the lead, it narrowed in January and February but seems to be opening back up a little now. A CNN poll released Monday had it at 54-38. I should say, though, that the fivethirtyeight average as of Wednesday morning is lower, at 47-39.

This Org Is Building Up Black Communities and Curbing Gentrification One Block At a Time

block

Earlier this year, Jay-Z released 4:44, which was critically acclaimed as one of the most transparent and prolific studio albums that he ever recorded. In addition to spilling intimate details about his marriage to superstar Beyoncé, he rapped about entrepreneurship, the advantages of saving, and economic empowerment, especially for people of color.

“F— livin’ Rich and Dyin’ Broke” – Jay-Z

 

In the track “The Story of OJ,” the retired street-hustler-turned-music-artist stresses the importance of ownership as a means to financial freedom. “Please don’t die over the neighborhood that your mama rentin.’ Take your drug money and buy the neighborhood, that’s how you rinse it,” he raps. That one powerful lyric advises hustlers not to risk their lives over property that is either owned by the government or other; rather, Jay tells them to use their earnings to make investments back into their communities. Not only does this build equity and wealth, but it can also be used as a tool to stop gentrification in urban areas from pushing minorities and working class folks out of prime real estate neighborhoods where they live. While real estate investment is an intimidating and risk concept for many, Lynn P. Smith is showing people how to put Jay’s invaluable advice into practice through her organization, Buy The Block.

 

 

Buy The Block

 

Buy The Block is a crowdfunding intermediary platform that connects real estate developers seeking to crowdfund any type of property. It is also one of the only black-owned platforms in the country that is dedicated to making investments in real estate as a group more accessible. With the focus on the black communities around the nation, Buy The Block is currently on track to raise millions of dollars in funding for development projects in communities of color. It projects that it will eventually change the face of crowdfunding real estate investing in America by taking on more significant projects and contracts. Another goal is to curb gentrification by empowering African Americans to purchase property and remain in their communities.

“Indeed, we have loads of challenges, but I am determined to educate our community and make this work… thanks to everyone out there that united as one to embrace and support this unique concept,” said Lynn, the founder and CEO, in a statement.

 

 

How It Works

 

A press release published on BlackNews.com further explains how the Buy The Block model works.

This enviable initiative offers every Black American an opportunity to invest as little as $ 100, and connect with other investors – with an added advantage of helping every member buy a piece of their first block. Having a growing database of BlockVestors and Block Developers, all it takes to be a member is by signing up on their website.

With the platform, acquiring property or block of choice in one’s local area is achievable. Getting the funds to make such a big difference can also be without hassles. All that is required of a member is to; find a property, make an offer, bring the property to Buy The Block, get the needed funding from other investors if they so desire, and then purchase the block.

The ability to share wealth depending on each person’s investment makes it a win-win situation for all block investors. Buy The Block can manage any project from concept to end, and they aim to develop a large number of construction projects, in areas such as; residential, manufacturing, retail, multi-family, medical, religious, and pre-engineered building construction.

With the focus on the Black communities in America, Buy The Block is on track to raise millions of dollars in funding for development projects in these communities. Having the capacity to take on more significant projects and contracts, they project that they will soon change the face of crowdfunding real estate investing in the country.

They intend to do this by committing their time to getting great projects and making it a win-win for all sponsored projects. Their mission as stated on their website is to “change investing from confusing and frustrating, to an accessible and enjoyable social experience.”

8 Steps to Kill Writer’s Block and Dance With the Muse

2014-09-04-writinginKip.png

I don’t believe in writer’s block.

There, I said it.

I do believe sometimes you write better than other times.

I was lucky. I grew up in the world of acting and had teachers who taught me that the creative process was not just about listening to your head, it was about listening from a different place, Sandy Miesner called it the impulse. So I learned you find the creative flow by opening the field of vision in order to listen with all of the senses.

After I left the world of acting and eventually learned about spirituality, it was great fun to discover the two disciplines had a lot in common: presence, listening, noticing the voice of the ego vs the voice of spirit.

It was Betty Buckley who opened my eyes to how to be a shamanic creatrix. Of course, she never would have used those words. I was lucky to work as an intern at the Williamstown Theater festival where she was performing. I will never forget sitting in her audience, feeling her song, and understanding for the first time the real power of performance. Betty anchored in the teaching that when you connect to the sacred through your creative act, when you step on to the stage with the intention to connect to the heart of your audience, you can have a profound impact.

I think of it as touching the void, that moment when you allow a universal truth to run through you. You surface something through your words/dance/acting/movement/song that your audience recognizes as true… they can feel it in a place that needs no words, and they experience the inner nod… because you are dancing with the muse.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Elizabeth Gilbert’s great TED TALK, The Elusive Creative Genius, where she discussed how the pressure of believing it is just you creating is enough to drive anyone insane.

But I digress. Lets cut to the chase and focus on the title of this post. If you are living in the illusion that you are creating all on your own and are feeling disconnected from the genius… I hope these tips help you break on through to the other side.

1. Stop Listening to Yourself

If what you are writing is crap, just stop.

Listen. The muse loves to play. All you need to do is be present enough to listen. She’ll come around often and lots when you stop pretending you are the only one creating.

Now that you stopped trying to create, go with the first thing that comes to mind. Even if it seems crazy and out of place, just go with it and see where it takes you. Trust.

2. Do Something That Scares You

I’m not saying jump off a cliff for heaven’s sake. I’m saying step out of your familiar comfort zone. Invite new experiences into your life. See what new conversations take place, what new material presents, what inspiration arises. (This is the quickest way to shake yourself out any kind of rut (right next to doing something good for someone else.)

3. Watch Robin Williams

When Robin died, I did what you did, started watching old videos of his interviews. He was out of control. Some of what he said was hilarious. Some of what he said wasn’t, but the fact that he said it was hilarious. For better or for worse, he didn’t censor what came through him. The result: We loved him for being his wild zany unpredictable self. We’ll probably love you for being your authentic self too… once you start sharing it with us.

3. Listen With Purpose

Imagine yourself surrounded by a muse/guardian angel. All she wants to do is inspire you, but the only way she can speak to you is through the physical things that surround you. NOW the annoying guy in the Starbucks line talking too loudly on his cell phone is about to say the title of your next book, the wind whispering through the pines is going to make you remember a sensation that explains your character in a way you didn’t dare to imagine. You get it. Everything is material. Everything. That little voice speaking…maybe it comes from behind you, inside of you, arrives in your mind’s eye…that is the muse my friend. Just take the first snipit and run like a banshee and don’t look back until you’re done. Edit later. It’s ok. Something will be in there.

4. Step Away

Everyone knows the most brilliant ideas arrive as soon as you get up to go to the bathroom. Why? Because when you’re going on and on for hours with your pals trying to create something epic, your line of vision can become so focused, it becomes narrow. So step away from what you are focusing on and allow your mind’s field of vision to expand again and let the muse in for another spin around the dance floor.

5. Leave No Pencil Behind

Walk with a notebook and pen everywhere you go. Write every little idea that comes to you. Put the ideas for new projects in a special place. Don’t think you will remember them. The muse can be fickle and can take what she offers right after she gives it. So write it all down. Right now. Before you forget. (You can use Evernote for this if you just. can’t. put. down. your. phone.

6. Do What You Love

If you’re still pretending you can’t get through your writer’s block or create anything of worth, then open up a new document, think about that other idea or concept or story idea that totally turns you on, and go for it. You’ll hate me in the morning. Why? Because you’ll stay up all night pacing with new ideas, high as a kite coursing with the passion for this new project, and write the first 17 chapters of your next book. Then you’ll have to decide which one you need to finish first. I apologize in advance. Meanwhile, you played in a river that was flowing and that was fun.

7. Leave Everything Behind And See What You’re Made Of

For an hour, for a day, for a month, for a year. Put the physical things that are taking up your energy aside. Clear all of your psychic debts. Deal with the people you have been avoiding. Clean up your physical space, and there will be so much more room for the muse and the genius to run though you.

8. Just Do It

I thought I had it all figured out until Paul Hawken (who has authored seven books) said something that stopped me in my tracks. He said something along the lines of how he just doesn’t buy it when people say “spirit wrote the book.” He said, YOU write the book. You are the one that sits down every day and writes.

I should add I also don’t believe in waiting for spirit to “move me.” It’s like meditating. It’s a practice, you show up every day and just do it. Some days are great. Some days aren’t as great. (And when spirit does come with a dose of inspiration, you know I right it down asap.)

Confession

Now I’m going to confess something. Last night I had a nightmare that this small being that I was caring for ran out into the street and was stabbed by a pitch fork. When I picked it up, there were holes throughout it’s body, but once it was in my hands, the holes healed. The whole day I was terrified that the dream was about the novel I just launched I kickstarter. I offered to give people one chapter at a time as I complete the final draft of the manuscript. (CRAZY.) I think my dream was pointing out my fear that people mike poke holes in this story that I was put in care of creating. I think of stories like that, as having a soul of their own that we have the good fortune of caring for.

It is inevitable, at some point, when you put yourself out there, people won’t care for your creation. But so what. Don’t let that stop you from creating. Most people don’t like the smell of your breath first thing in the morning either. Does that stop you from brushing? My point exactly.

The only reason anything happens is so the next thing can happen. So just keep on going and see what happens next.

Writer's Block

Writer's Block


They say that writers have a strong desire to get published, but they didn''t mention that the eagerness to be published could lead to madness. Unfortunately this wasn''t explained to one writer who seeks his revenge on agents, publishers, and newspaper columnists by murdering them for not endorsing or publishing his work.

Writer''s Block is a murder mystery about seven writers, one of which is the serial killer, who meets once a month for their writer''s block meetings at their local Barnes & Noble book store to discuss their writing feats and accomplishments.

Writer''s Block also delves into the trails and tribulations of what seven writers endure to get published. It will allow you to witness the tragedy of one writer''s prisoner of war ordeal, one writer''s infidelity issues, the unexpected death of one writer''s mother, and other serious issues that these writers experience.
