Locked Out of Linkedin?

I hate being a nitpick.
But you Linkedin users who are using your business email to signup and use the platform might be in for a rude awakening.
You DO NOT OWN that email.
You WILL LEAVE that position someday.
And when it happens, man...
I'll let Andrew Brandt explain it much better than I, but how hard is it to just use your personal email?


I like to think that most people think of me as a pretty happy person.
I am, for the most part.
I went through some 360 Leadership training earlier this year and did some goal orienting and yada yada yada.
Anyhoo, the end result was some good introspection.
One thing that occurred in the outside looking in was that I actually have a lot to be happy about and gratitude is something to be shared and enjoyed.
Not to be bragging, not to be a show-off, just to say "I'm happy, and thankful."
Did you know that they can tell if you are depressed by analyzing your Facebook?

So, I saw something call the 100DaysofHappy and of course there are 365daychallenges, you name it.
I decided to challenge myself to share at least one thing every day that makes me happy.
I'd LOVE to know what makes you happy too.

Use the hashtag #365daysofhappyfortodd (seriously, no one is using it).

Share on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook- and be on the lookout here...
Starting July 27- which is my birthday, but not the reason for happiness alone.
Want to celebrate with me? Share the happy!

Post-Endgame MCU Team Theory

I've got this crazy idea.
I think Marvel left the playing field open in the post "Avengers:Endgame" landscape for a new super-team.

Back in the pre-Netflix days, there was a super team called "The Defenders."

It's not much of a spoiler to disclose that Dr. Strange has come out intact after Endgame (they've announced a sequel movie).
So right out of the gate you have the first member of this team up as you can tell from the comic cover.

The second member, who always has trouble being in Marvel films due to rights issues with Universal is Mark Ruffalo's Hulk.

He is a little different after the movie, but still available and would be a fantastic addition.

The odd-man out in the cover is Namor the Submariner.
Marvel has claimed that they wanted to make a version of this for years, but it was buried in the Fox deal because he was always lumped in with the Fantastic Four.

I have never liked the idea and now that DC has their Aquaman series rolling, I think the boat was missed, but there are some whispers that he might be introduced as an antagonist to Black Panther in his next film. This makes sense, but like a good anti-hero, Namor (like Hulk) could easily work with the team dynamics of these guys.

Finally, we get to the last piece and one of the more interesting parts about the Defenders. After these three, other characters became a rotating roster of characters. Silver Surfer eventually joins and the entire roster changed out at multiple points.
However, the MCU has left one CRUCIAL character who was nearly always part:
Now, doesn't that sound like a blast? She already has a relationship with Hulk. If you didn't or could not use Namor, find another NEW character and off you go!

I would love to see Tessa Thompson playing against these guys and whoever they could eventually introduce... and maybe even bring a TV Defender over like Luke Cage (who was also a legit Defender at several points).

So what do you think? Possible?
