Online Piracy, Read This Before You Download Your Favorite Episode Of "Game of Thrones"

Writers, musicians, filmmakers and artists love to create. Online pirates love to steal their creations. Artists whose creations have reached a modicum of success have spent years honing their craft. They’ve spent countless hours writing or recording only to spend countless more hours re-writing and re-recording to get their book, song or screenplay to a point of artistic expression they can be proud of. Online pirates love to sit at their computers looking for creative works to steal and disseminate. They get a thrill from stealing, hoping to make money while not getting caught. Or, they feel justified in downloading their favorite TV series for free. After all, don’t those big production companies make millions? Pirates rob, plunder and hijack. Artists produce the music, art, and films that fill voids in our lives. Just as you want your personal property to be protected, artists deserve to have their intellectual property protected by our laws. Based on the number of downloads, BitTorrent reported that “Game of Thrones” was the most pirated TV show in 2014. It was downloaded 8.1 million times. The second most downloaded show was “The Walking Dead” with 4.8 million downloads, then “The Big Bang Theory” with 3.9 million downloads. That’s a whole lot of plundering and hijacking. Arts.mic reports that “Game of Thrones” costs 6 million per episode to make. “Big Bang Theory” costs 2 million. Without profits, which are diminished by online piracy, these productions would cease. As reported at RIIA.com (the Recording Industry Association Website), digital content theft of music has been devastating to the industry. “Employment at the major U.S. music companies has declined by thousands of workers.” Think about the fact that every time you pirate digital media in the form of music, movies or a television series, you are contributing to taking

Feeling Down After Laid Off?

Feeling Down After Laid Off?

Some days I just feel so down. I was recently laid off from my job of 5 years and I haven’t found any work yet. I feel like the only things that take my mind off it are drinking and T.V. I’m no alcoholic but it helps to pass the time. I’m single so I don’t have a family to support. I’m also getting unemployment so I’m not in financial trouble. My life was my work and now I feel totally useless. My friends all have jobs and I think they look down on me because of my situation. I’m just so bored. What should I do? First of all, don’t think that your friends all look down on you. You’re no slacker if you had a job for 5 years that you got laid off from. Stop letting those negative thoughts roll around in your head! Stop beating yourself up with your negative thoughts! Let’s talk some more about how negative thinking can get you down. Reread what you wrote, and I’m sure it’s just the tip of the iceberg over how your thinking is contributing to your feeling down…I feel totally useless…I’m bored…my friends look down on me. I’ll bet you could easily add to this list. People who have a habit of letting negative thinking steam roll their thoughts can struggle with depression and low self-esteem. Think about it. If you had someone sitting next to you saying all the nasty, degrading things to you all day long that you say to yourself, it would, understandably, get you down. That, or you’d tell them to get lost. Or worse, you’d punch them out! You need to work at “punching out” your negative thinking. Recognize it as a habit you’ve let yourself fall in to. Start noticing when

Teenagers Profiled for Shoplifting?

Teenagers Profiled for Shoplifting?

I’m in high school and I hate it when my friends and I go to stores and feel like we get followed around in the store like we’re shoplifters. We don’t do that kind of thing and I get tired of feeling like we’re getting profiled. We’ve talked about saying something to them (the store clerks), and sort of messing with them, but should we? I don’t want to get in trouble for something I wouldn’t do anyway? You know, your question reminds me of a time when my kids were teenagers and would come home from shopping, and tell me that they felt like they were being profiled. They would get followed around and watched in stores. Like you and your friends, they weren’t shoplifting, but they felt like just because they were teenagers, they were being targeting and watched closely. They talked about how this made them feel angry, frustrated and unfairly treated. I’m sure you and your friends feel kind of the same way. It doesn’t feel fair to be looked at like you’re a criminal when you aren’t doing anything wrong. If it makes you feel any better, recently, I felt like I was being carefully watched for shoplifting at a sidewalk sale. The clothes racks were sitting outside the store so close to the parking lot that it would have been easy to grab a few things and stash them in my car. While looking through the racks, I noticed a store clerk pretending to be shopping close to me while keeping an eye on me. I chuckled to myself because, like you, I don’t shoplift (never have, never will…probably something to do with those Catholic school nuns and the possibility of going to hell…), but I quickly just told myself that she was simply
