The movie “The Matrix” features a computer hacker called Neo, and deals with the themes of reality and freedom. In the movie, most of humanity has been enslaved and locked into a virtual reality called the matrix, which is controlled by intelligent machines.

Neo joins the rebellion, and struggles to free humanity from the grand illusion of the matrix.
In many areas of your life, you’re probably aware that it’s useful to keep emotions out of your decision-making — and that’s certainly the case with investing. However, it can be difficult to keep your feelings from influencing your investment decisions. But you may find it easier to invest with your head, rather than your heart, if you know a little something about two different cycles: the market cycle and your emotional cycle.
The opening lines of “It’s For You,” by Douglas Penick, Shambala Sun, May, 2014, caught my attention: “bad news can come to feel a little like falling in love.” In this case, the author received a call from his physician informing him that he had cancer. So what is this about falling in love? What is there to love about learning that one has a life threatening disease?

Writing about a sequel in the Marvel franchise is tricky because of the franchise’s incestuous nature. Iron Man, for example, has three movies of his own, a lead role in “The Avengers” and either stops by or is referenced frequently in the other Marvel films due to the ubiquitous nature of Stark Industries. All of those appearances and references serve as outlets to broaden every hero, so isolating Thor's actions in his franchise is impossible because of the character development he sustains in the tent pole film.
The Arizona Humane Society unveiled a new cat isolation area at its Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion. The isolation area is the second of its kind for the Arizona Humane Society after the first one was expanded in 2010. The new space has been open roughly six weeks and has had approximately 40 temporary residents, some of whom are now in foster care and others who have recovered and are now in their forever homes. The space requires those who enter to gown and glove up while also wearing removable show covers. Daily evaluations of these animals include how they are responding to the medications, attitude, appetite and hydration. In addition, the new space gives AHS the ability to get to know the cats even better and provide that information to adopters.
