The 10/22/13 Joy Jar

22 Oct

Moi is usually a couple of generations behind in the tech world because she buys used stuff that others have discarded as they race to become first with the newest technology. Today, Apple, Microsoft, and Nokia unveiled new tablets. See, Apple’s tablet competitors:

As prospective tablet buyers await news on updated versions of the iPad and the iPad mini, Microsoft and Nokia are gearing up to go head-to-head with Apple.
Apple is expected to announce a redesigned 9.7-inch iPad as well as a new iPad mini with Retina display, according to Dana Wollman, managing editor of Engadget.
A Windows Surface tablet.Microsoft’s new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets will also be released this week, and of the two, Wollman says the Pro version will be the fiercer competitor with the iPad, though it won’t be fierce enough to really pose a threat to Apple.
Meanwhile many gadget watchers are likely keeping an eye out for details on Nokia’s Lumia 2520 tablet, which Wollman said could be just as well-designed and well-built as the rest of Nokia’s hardware.

Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is innovation.

Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
Steve Jobs

I believe in innovation and that the way you get innovation is you fund research and you learn the basic facts.
Bill Gates

I cannot help fearing that men may reach a point where they look on every new theory as a danger, every innovation as a toilsome trouble, every social advance as a first step toward revolution, and that they may absolutely refuse to move at all.
Alexis de Tocqueville

Every Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. The act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.
Peter Drucker

Business has only two functions – marketing and innovation.
Milan Kundera

Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.
William Pollard

Despite all our gains in technology, product innovation and world markets, most people are not thriving in the organizations they work for.
Stephen Covey

The five essential entrepreneurial skills for success: Concentration, Discrimination, Organization, Innovation and Communication.
Harold S. Geneen

An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: What does happen is that the opponents gradually die out.
Max Planck

Innovation is the central issue in economic prosperity.
Michael Porter

I’m a big fan of small business ownership. I think it’s the backbone of American innovation. But to be successful, you first have to have the courage to go for it.
Bill Rancic

Out-innovating them is the way to beat China. And to do everything that we do in this country to support innovative policy, that drives innovation and new products and more jobs and creates jobs. You can’t – you can’t put a wall up around here. We tried that in the ’30s. It didn’t work.
Jack Welch

Now this is moi’s profile which stands by:

Dr. Wilda V. Heard, or “Dr. Wilda,” has a J.D. from Yale Law School and a doctorate in education leadership from Seattle University. She has been a volunteer at Legal Voice, formerly the Northwest Women’s Law Center. Currently, she volunteers at the Open Door Legal Clinic of the Union Gospel Mission. Dr. Wilda writes about schools, education reform, and the effect the culture has on education, children, and families. Her comments are of three types: opinion (these comments reflect her opinion on a subject), commentary (her assessment of another’s opinion or comment), and pot stirrer (these comments are written to arouse passion in the reader and to provoke discussion).

All moi can say to the stalker is it is too bad that you have such a miserable life and instead of contributing in positive ways to the world, feel the need to be destructive. Get help. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is forgiveness

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Mahatma Gandhi

Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.
Bruce Lee

Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.
John F. Kennedy

Always forgive your enemies – nothing annoys them so much.
Oscar Wilde

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
Mark Twain

Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.
Indira Gandhi

When you forgive, you in no way change the past – but you sure do change the future.
Bernard Meltzer

He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven.
Thomas Fuller

Forgiveness is the final form of love.
Reinhold Niebuhr
