Finding a good baby carrier is like finding a good man...

It takes a lot of time and you have to go through a lot of bad ones.
Before I had a baby, I thought the simplest way to figure out what kind of gear I would need was to read reviews on sites like Baby Gear Lab and Baby Center (if only parenting were this simple.) As ergo was consistently named one of the best carriers, I felt fortunate when my sister-in-law re-gifted me her never used ergo carrier. Unfortunately, my baby did not feel the same way. I quickly discovered why the ergo was never used by my sister-in-law. Whenever I put my baby in the ergo, he cried. Not cute little kitten squeals, but full on pterodactyl type shrieks. So desperate was my little one to escape from the ergo that he would arch his back and use his feet to launch himself off of me in some kind of deranged baby suicide attempt. There was nothing ergonomic about the ergo for my baby or I, so we moved onto the baby k’tan.
I loved my baby k’tan – it was soft, comfy, easy to put on and oh so cuddly. It reminded m…

My AdSense Account

My wife and I started this blog as a project we could work on together as a couple.  The premise of the blog was to write book reviews.  Since then it has evolved into a myriad of topics such as: sports, anime, self-help, etc.  Pretty much whatever tickles our fancy.

We thought about monetizing the site to generate passive income.  We signed up for AdSense but that took forever to clear.  In the mean time we did Amazon Associates to see if it could generate any revenue.  I can say with no hesitation that Amazon Associates is pretty useless for a blogger such as myself.  I can't dedicate much time to this since I have a job, a family, and other interests.

When AdSesnse did clear through and we put in the widgets, our life was getting pretty crazy.  Our son was due, getting the house ready for a baby, family visiting.  It inevitably led to the blog being left on the backburner for almost a year.

So I was shocked to see that after a large time off from blogging, I saw that the blog h…

The Brooklyn Nets 2018 NBA Summer so far

It's been a long time since I've posted anything and to be honest I wasn't planning on writing a blog post anytime soon.  However, as a Nets fan I wanted to share my thoughts with other Nets fans and see if the feeling is mutual in regards to this year's off-season.

In my opinion I felt that the Nets should address their greatest issue which was rebounding.  If you look at last year's team statistics the Nets are ranked pretty well in rebounding.  However, if you watched the games and review the advanced statistics they rank 25th in rebounding percentage.

In many of the games I felt that the Nets played solid enough defense to force missed shots in the earlier parts of the games.  However, they could never clear the boards and were forced to play extra defensive possessions against teams.

A large part of this is because the Nets bigs couldn't clear the boards due to their size.  However, if they did have size like Mozgov, they were unplayable because they woul…

Management Styles - How to turn the ship around

Turn the Ship Around! By David Marquet is a book on leadership and management style in working within a turnaround project.  David Marquet is a retired naval captain and was captain to the nuclear submarine, the Santa Fe.
In the Navy, there is a clear hierarchy of power.  The formation of the organization is like a pyramid, and it is designed as a leader-follower model of leadership.  The leader-follower model is where the senior officer will give orders and the junior personnel would follow.  The expectation is obedience to authority, and punitive measures for those who step out of line.  In some situations, this style of leadership works.  In situations where this does work, the efficacy of the leadership model goes out the window when the leader leaves.  This is because the commander has been the driving force behind the organization, and is keeping all his subordinates on task. 
Before Mr. Marquet became a captain, he was a junior officer aboard the Sunfish.  He implemented a le…
