    All I can do is act on the topic/issue according to my instinct and values, and leave the quarrels to develop on their own. Here’s how I am using my own talents to act on this:

    Propaganda. Kony is old news. This is a government backed campaign to create another enemy now that the Arabs are played out. They started with the Somali pirate scare and then Gaddafi. Soon U.S. military presence in Africa will be justified because of campaigns like this and the U.S. will rape the country for its resources. Peep game people. Don’t fall for the hype. This has been going on for 25 years and all the sudden every American somehow cares about the African children? Give me a break. I’m not saying the man shouldn’t be stopped, but he hasn’t been seen since 2007, and Uganda isnt like that anymore. It’s sad to see my favorite site A2S on the bandwagon.

    Hi Jordan,
    So what are you trying to say exactly? That we shouldn’t spread the good word about shutting Joseph Kony down? This guy deserves to be destroyed for what he has done and everybody should know about it. Uganda would be a much better place, when the bad is taken away then it leaves more of a reason for the young generation of Uganda to live with more hope in return they will be more ambitious and hopeful than be living, wishing that they were dead instead so they can see their brothers and sisters again.

    Stop KONY 2012

    • Jordan

      Apr 20, 2012 at 10:24 am

      Telesha, I was just stating what the Kony campaign has failed to clarify on. They have released a video that briefly breaks down how to view their expenses and focused plan of action.

      What I do not see is the clarification needed to the mass amounts of those jumping on this bandwagon that simply sending aid isn’t the best plan of action. I hope great things come of this movement and the proper leadership to reach their goals.

    Before you jump on this bandwagon understand that it is old news, footage and facts. Currently the problem in Uganda isn’t the rebel forces, but the excess aid that is being sent and used by them. Their government uses most of their resources for aid so they are completely provided with everything (food, clothes, bedding, education) they need and more to where they are not focused on establishing a market of their own.

    Kony has been pushed out into the Congo and anti-rebel forces are in control of the region. I know this because I read an article from someone whom recently was there. The Ugandan people even sell aid supplies from all over America. While I am absolutely for supporting our brothers and sisters around the globe we must also realize we are feeding them with reasons why they shouldn’t have to start their own market.

    KONY 2012 Is real! Joseph Kony needs to be stopped once and for all. I am going to buy a Kony 2012 Bracelet.

    Yes Kony needs to be stopped. I have seen multiple documentaries about this guy and he is a true war criminal.

5 Snapchat Hacks You Should Be Using

5 SnapChat Hacks

I am hot on this platform right now, you guys. And you should be too. It’s a huge deal, and has lots of amazing opportunities for big and small businesses, marketers, individuals, personal brands…you name it. Let me help you guys get started with a few snapchat tips.

One thing before we start with these snapchat secrets: you gotta make sure you have the “filters” and all that other fun stuff switched to “ON” in your settings. Without those, what are you even doing on Snapchat?

 

1. Make emojis huge

emojis snapchat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ever gotten a snap with a giant emoji in it? It’s too easy (and looks awesome).

After you’ve taken your snap, type in an emoji like you normally would, but then tap that big T button in the top corner. And there it is. Even better, now you can drag it anywhere on the screen.

 

2. Find hidden colors

Snapchat doesn’t show all the colors they have available. Crazy, right?

To find the hidden colors, just drag your finger to the left and bottom of the screen when you have that rainbow palette open.

 

3. Use location filters

Ever notice how when you swipe left and right after taking a pic, all these different filters appear?

Swipe once to the right and you’ll see a location appear. Sometimes there will be even two or three to choose from.

But even better: if you snap a selfie and use the filter, then download it before you send it out, you’ll have a pretty kick ass grid of all the places you’ve been in a few weeks. Free content. Boom.

 

4. Replay snaps

You guys, I’m totally serious. You can replay a snap. BUT you can only do this once a day from a snapchat username. Also, you can only replay the last one you viewed, so you can’t just go back and choose one from hours earlier.

First, enable replay in your settings. Then, to replay, tap the snap and a bubble will pop up asking if you want to replay. And of course, you say: yes!

Warning: the person will get a notification saying you replayed it. Choose wisely. 😉

 

5. Draw like a pro

You know those crazy cool influencers you see doing amazing drawings? They’re making them on an iPad. Seriously. iPhone screens are way too small for all that detail.

Even though there is no Snapchat app for the iPad, you can still download it and use it on the iPad. Get creative and detailed! And…use a stylus if you’re really ready to get serious.

    All I can do is act on the topic/issue according to my instinct and values, and leave the quarrels to develop on their own. Here’s how I am using my own talents to act on this:

    Propaganda. Kony is old news. This is a government backed campaign to create another enemy now that the Arabs are played out. They started with the Somali pirate scare and then Gaddafi. Soon U.S. military presence in Africa will be justified because of campaigns like this and the U.S. will rape the country for its resources. Peep game people. Don’t fall for the hype. This has been going on for 25 years and all the sudden every American somehow cares about the African children? Give me a break. I’m not saying the man shouldn’t be stopped, but he hasn’t been seen since 2007, and Uganda isnt like that anymore. It’s sad to see my favorite site A2S on the bandwagon.

  3. Telesha N

    Mar 8, 2012 at 7:42 am

    Hi Jordan,
    So what are you trying to say exactly? That we shouldn’t spread the good word about shutting Joseph Kony down? This guy deserves to be destroyed for what he has done and everybody should know about it. Uganda would be a much better place, when the bad is taken away then it leaves more of a reason for the young generation of Uganda to live with more hope in return they will be more ambitious and hopeful than be living, wishing that they were dead instead so they can see their brothers and sisters again.

    Stop KONY 2012

    • Jordan

      Apr 20, 2012 at 10:24 am

      Telesha, I was just stating what the Kony campaign has failed to clarify on. They have released a video that briefly breaks down how to view their expenses and focused plan of action.

      What I do not see is the clarification needed to the mass amounts of those jumping on this bandwagon that simply sending aid isn’t the best plan of action. I hope great things come of this movement and the proper leadership to reach their goals.

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/13/invisible-children-stop-kony_n_1341258.html

  4. Jordan

    Mar 8, 2012 at 6:54 am

    Before you jump on this bandwagon understand that it is old news, footage and facts. Currently the problem in Uganda isn’t the rebel forces, but the excess aid that is being sent and used by them. Their government uses most of their resources for aid so they are completely provided with everything (food, clothes, bedding, education) they need and more to where they are not focused on establishing a market of their own.

    Kony has been pushed out into the Congo and anti-rebel forces are in control of the region. I know this because I read an article from someone whom recently was there. The Ugandan people even sell aid supplies from all over America. While I am absolutely for supporting our brothers and sisters around the globe we must also realize we are feeding them with reasons why they shouldn’t have to start their own market.

  5. Steven Bay

    KONY 2012 Is real! Joseph Kony needs to be stopped once and for all. I am going to buy a Kony 2012 Bracelet.

    Mar 7, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    Yes Kony needs to be stopped. I have seen multiple documentaries about this guy and he is a true war criminal.

5 Snapchat Hacks You Should Be Using

5 SnapChat Hacks

I am hot on this platform right now, you guys. And you should be too. It’s a huge deal, and has lots of amazing opportunities for big and small businesses, marketers, individuals, personal brands…you name it. Let me help you guys get started with a few snapchat tips.

One thing before we start with these snapchat secrets: you gotta make sure you have the “filters” and all that other fun stuff switched to “ON” in your settings. Without those, what are you even doing on Snapchat?

 

1. Make emojis huge

Ever gotten a snap with a giant emoji in it? It’s too easy (and looks awesome).

After you’ve taken your snap, type in an emoji like you normally would, but then tap that big T button in the top corner. And there it is. Even better, now you can drag it anywhere on the screen.

 

2. Find hidden colors

Snapchat doesn’t show all the colors they have available. Crazy, right?

To find the hidden colors, just drag your finger to the left and bottom of the screen when you have that rainbow palette open.

 

3. Use location filters

Ever notice how when you swipe left and right after taking a pic, all these different filters appear?

Swipe once to the right and you’ll see a location appear. Sometimes there will be even two or three to choose from.

But even better: if you snap a selfie and use the filter, then download it before you send it out, you’ll have a pretty kick ass grid of all the places you’ve been in a few weeks. Free content. Boom.

 

4. Replay snaps

You guys, I’m totally serious. You can replay a snap. BUT you can only do this once a day from a snapchat username. Also, you can only replay the last one you viewed, so you can’t just go back and choose one from hours earlier.

First, enable replay in your settings. Then, to replay, tap the snap and a bubble will pop up asking if you want to replay. And of course, you say: yes!

Warning: the person will get a notification saying you replayed it. Choose wisely. 😉

 

5. Draw like a pro

You know those crazy cool influencers you see doing amazing drawings? They’re making them on an iPad. Seriously. iPhone screens are way too small for all that detail.

Even though there is no Snapchat app for the iPad, you can still download it and use it on the iPad. Get creative and detailed! And…use a stylus if you’re really ready to get serious.
