Everyone has something about themselves that they desperately want to change about themselves. If anyone tells you that they don’t, they’re either lying or have spent a fair amount of time working on themselves to get to that point and may be telling the truth. Though I’m not here to list anything I’ve got going on or to ask about any of you, I’d like to offer a bit of perspective. Unless something is physically recognizable or someone tells us, we have no idea what is going on in someone’s head. The happiest people on the outside can be suffering from terrible depression. If someone is on the shyer side, that doesn’t mean they aren’t social, it just might take longer for them to open up. I am merely suggesting that when you look at a person, no matter who they are or what they seem to have going on, don’t make hasty assumptions.
While you’re judging no more books by their covers, here’s what you missed in the news yesterday.
Young Moolah, Baby
Moolah Mobile is a company which has created custom home-screens for mobile users that display ads in a “non-invasive” set location of one’s device. Per their official website, each time an advertisement is shown on one’s phone, the user earns “10% of what Moolah was paid for showing that ad in real time.” Users are paid in the form of “Moolah” which can be used in the Moolah Store for a variety of items. This company has commodified space on personal mobile devices and created a micro-gig economy in the process. Sound crazy? Keep reading.
Moolah took its screen-buying operations one step further today when the Company announced that it had formed a partnership with SurgePhone Wireless, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Surge Holdings Inc (SURGE) to launch the first free wireless service for low-income communities. Yes, folks, the companies will offer completely free service for mobile device users. Through the use of Moolah’s passive income platform, users will be able to use money earned from ads on their home screens to fully pay their new phone bills.
“Partnering with Moolah Mobile enhances our ability to utilize emerging technology to improve the quality of life for low income, under-banked, subprime credit and immigrant populations in the U.S…This partnership gives Surge a competitive advantage by essentially creating a no-cost product offering that currently doesn’t exist. I look forward to partnering with the team at Moolah Mobile on other products down the road as we both work to provide technology and digital services to the disadvantaged.”
–Brian Cox, Chief Executive Officer, Surge
We Asked For The Abridged Version
Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned in his homework earlier this week, and the subject of his essay was investigating claims that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election. No member of the Legislative Branch has had the chance to view the 300-page report, and people continue to express their frustration at this fact. Over the weekend, Attorney General Bill Barr released a four-page summary to the House Judiciary Committee, saying, in his words, that the report failed to find evidence of any sort of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“How can I say this more clearly? Show us the report!”
