THE NEXT BEST THING: WHAT COMPANY WILL BE THE NEXT MAJOR

“Too big to fail.”


on the rise

All throughout my life, there have been well known companies that have come along and gone. But every so often one comes along that changes the landscape of the way we live our lives: Google, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Uber, Amazon, eBay, to name a few. Now my question is, who will be the next major to come along and change society? Which company is already in existence that no one knows about that is slowly making changes to boost themselves into the visible marketplace? And will we ever see another giant that is considered too big to fail?

the new job market

The new company could be in the form of the tech space and create a whole new host of jobs. And these jobs most likely won’t be the manual jobs we are used to, but the behind the desk staring into a monitor jobs we know now. Meaning that someone is being moved aside for this new way of life. But, don’t scare, the number of people working will balance itself against the people who are without a job.

we wait and see

We have no clue who the next giant will be. I wish I knew even a slight bit of information. This would make one great investment to be one of the first. Imagine you stumbling on the next Apple of Facebook. But in order to do this t takes skill. It takes a long time studying and trying figure that thing that separates this company from others. Thing is, someone will figure it out, and a new group of billionaires will be born.

INNNOVATION OR DISTRACTION: AUGMENTED REALITY ENTERING THE MARKET

“Everything that glitter ain’t gold.”


when is too real

As the technology becomes more and more advanced, we are seeing products come to market that has me thinking twice. And one of these innovations is AR (augmented reality). Augmented reality for those unaware is an interactive real world experience computer generated. You are the person able to interpret the real world scenario you are witnessing, but no one else. The opportunities are endless when using AR, but there is a downside to the introduction of AR. And the distraction is the downside that comes with the technology. When we as society become too enamored with the fictitious world we have created for ourselves and the one we actually live.

context of use

Remember I said that the opportunities are endless. When looking at the medical industry, we have to acknowledge the ability to pull up the patients anatomy in this augmented reality. And the use of certain x-ray machines are no longer necessary. You can literally pinpoint the problem and show the patient in real time. But the downside of the AR capabilities are people using them daily life walking up the street. This is where it becomes problematic. You have to be able to look at this from a space of context. As long as it’s in the right hands.

new industries popping up

Even with the obstacles presented there is still life. We have an ability for new industries to start popping up. Ways that we never thought we could make an income will soon become popular. So ultimately, the introduction of AR will be beneficial. We have to work out all the kinks, and then we will learn to use the devices. Remember, people felt this same way about cell phones. And with the accidents that do occur, we still have a very thriving society.

MADE IN AMERICA: WILL WE EVER SEE ANOTHER INDUSTRIAL STYLE REVOLUTION AGIN

architecture, building, empty

“WE used to build thing.”


american made

Throughout American history, we prided ourselves on reading labels that read, “Made in the U.S.A.” But now, with so many jobs being shipped overseas to China, we are leaving behind that great American Dream we once thought to be true. Why, well, it’s a lot cheaper to make goods in a foreign country rather than in America. Also, making products here is more difficult to compete globally.

going global

Do we need to go global with everything? And the answer is yes, we do. If you understand on industry is set up, you do. Meaning, people will say, make products in America, then run out and purchase a Toyota. Make it in America, then run out and buy a Samsung. And then we wonder why we can’t compete as a country. So what people say, and their actions are totally different.

Also, if we isolate ourselves, there are products that contain chemicals, herbs, and priceless metals that are not indigenous to the United States. So we couldn’t build anything because you’re talking about needing these priceless products for our innovation. Nothing is actually of this land that we need that we can do for ourselves.

a new beginning

In today’s society, we are more of a information based society than a hands on society. The internet has opened the door to a whole host of opportunities. Opportunities where the small guy can now be his own boss and work from home. You don’t need anyone telling what to work on, and when to work. But that is easier said than done because you have to build.

And the building means years of disappointment before reaching the end goal. That is a journey so many don’t want to take in life because of the degree of failure. But one thing is certain America is not, and can’t go back to the way things were in the past.

THE DISCOVERY: HOW DOES ONE STAND OUT FROM THE PACK

Image result for STANDOUT

“Dare to be different.”


differentiating

In our society today, you see so much entertainment that is based around so many people sounding the same and looking the same. How do you know one person from the other. Everything you turn on is just the same as the next thing. So in a world, where I myself am an artist, it seems that you have to be sometimes the norm to be relevant; but do you?

the pack

What if I dare to be different as most would say. Does that mean I will be seen for certain? Because in the entertainment world, people want their success right now. So when they see another person’s formula working, they run with that. But it’s not you, you’re the rest of the pack. Find your voice and stick to it, but that it easier said than done.

programming

There are so many different ways to standout from the pack and not get caught up in what else is being done in entertainment. But we become so disillusioned by what is hot right at this moment, we are in a trance until it’s too late. cinema, dark, displayIt’s why you are supposed to exercise your creativity like any other muscle in your human body. I think this is the reason when it comes to entertainment, I try my best to not get caught up too much into what is hot. Because what is hot is always getting replaced. So stick to your guns and keep at it.

BEING DIFFICULT: WHAT IS MEANT BY BEING DIFFICULT IN ENTERTAINMENT

Image result for difficult

“What it all means.”


being difficult

When you listen to people who have been blackballed in Hollywood, there is this same saying over and over again, “They’re difficult.” And to me, I have always wondered, what does that mean. We keep hearing this word, but no one seems to explain what is meant by being difficult. Can anyone name an instance?

Or could it be that the person or people calling you difficult says so and is not used to explaining why.

blackballed

In an environment that prides itself on being so inclusion and so open, it is also a place where no one really tells the truth about anything. And for those who have decided to speak out, what is it about them that sets them aside from the rest that don’t talk. Do they possess a certain moral judgement or do they now have nothing to lose?

Recently comedian Monique’s name has been brought up again due to her receiving such a low deal from Netflix. She has been a person who has been accused of being difficult, but no one can explain difficult moments. Which prompts you to ask a lot of questions.

what is it?

When you look at the demands of certain celebrities who are considered difficult you come to a consensus. Difficult is wanting anything that is an inch more out of a mile that could contribute to your overall happiness that a boss is not willing to give. You would think it is something major, but a minor issue is made into a major problem to keep everything and everyone in check.

Another example of difficulty is existing in an environment having anything to say that does align itself with the overall mood of what everyone else is pushing. So if you are conservative in a room full of liberals keep quiet. Your views could get you hurt. Because other than the two examples above, no one can explain what is difficult.

agendas are born and die

With what has been said about the celebs who are blackballed, it only makes the Me Too and Times Up movements appear weak. Because the same way that people in entertainment stand behind the machine to push against the blackballed Monique is the same reason Harvey Weinstein stayed on top so long. And all it does it show people in society that business as usual still exist.

NO TELE: WHAT WILL HAPPEN OF THE TELEVISION IN THE FUTURE

abandoned, antique, close -up

“What will come of it?”


television

The television was created nearly 100 years ago. And since then, it has transformed from a medium with only a few channels to thousands of channels. First created as a means of educating the public, it has gone on to mean a form of entertainment. But with so many platforms on the internet, what will happen of the television?

platforms

The internet platforms that are rapidly eclipsing the television are Netflix, Amazon Prime, Vimeo, and Hulu. These platforms have gone from small companies, to majors in the film and television business. But will they be a long term threat to the entertainment industry?

opportunities

With regards to people looking to make a name for themselves, there will be an open availability to be creative and grow on their own. You used to have to go to Los Angeles, now, you can upload on sites. Or if you have an audience that has been built by yourself, these various platforms would be open to business. What could this mean for the entertainment business?

barriers

Will we start to see boundaries for coming into the entertainment business? Because if the people who can easily use these services grow too much, they become more of a liability than an asset. Because there are a lot of people who work for companies that are not on platforms. But the other side is platforms may start to become even tougher to work with. So like Disney who announced they will have a platform, others may have to follow.

RAPE CULTURE: THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL OF HOLLYWOOD

Image result for hollywood

“Who would have thought there is an actual culture behind it.”


In the recent news, we have been hearing about all the sexual assault allegations directed at the Hollywood elite. Ranging from actors to top executives, all who have been accused and admitted to sexual assaulting women and even children in some cases. Many thought the worst was over with all the women that came out over Bill Cosby. Then Harvey Weinstein victims came out, and from there on it has been a constant barrage of women sharing their stories of sexual assault and rape at the hands of powerful men in Hollywood. And the reason besides this being Hollywood, why it’s such a news story, is because of the way famous public figures try to police everyone else. These men and women spent the past year and a half attacking the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump for his comments. Now they’re silent on the allegations in their industry.

These are the same people who say there is a rape culture issue in America, but they are surrounded by a culture of rape. And it has gone on for decades in the film and television business, with very few people coming out against it. So if this is something that is this pervasive in the industry, how do you change the way business is conducted. Because at this point it’s part of the identity of an industry. And if this is something that is the identity, then how do you change it? You can’t change this overnight, it takes a long time. But the Golden Globes and the Oscars are two and half months away. Are the comedians that host these award shows going to address it or remain silent? Since everything else is addressed in the industry that is social or political. My best guess is that they won’t, which will further add to the already feeling of disconnect.

But then again, is this just a Hollywood identity? If you’re under the impression that this is only a one industry problem you are wrong. Women can tell you horror stories abut men in politics, corporate America, the medical field, and even education. Yet the men who are constantly getting caught are guys who come from an era where this was totally acceptable. A time when men were told, “Hey, look at how she’s dressed; it’s an invite.” And these men are so stuck in their mind-frame from that time on top of having so much influence, they don’t realize the change in time. They know you can get in trouble quicker, but yet still, the full concept is not grasped. In the end, who knew that the fighters against this rape culture was part of the biggest culture of rape. I don’t see the business changing anytime soon. But it has to start now because what has been done has changed the game forever.
