Politics: Former President Obama Goes To Germany (Video)

I believe that the Barack Obama post-Presidency has the potential to be even more impactful and far-reaching across the decades than even former President Jimmy Carter’s. And that’s a high bar. In my lifetime, Carter was one of the few U.S. Presidents that have done more than had a big library built. Google his accomplishments as Ambassador, as a peace negotiator, working with the Peace Corps and Habitat for Humanity… and both Carter and Obama have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

A massive crowd gathered in Berlin to listen to former POTUS Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel speak about democracy.

Watch this clip. Just a warm up. But it looks like the former Prez is done with the water skiing vacations and is getting ready to go back to work making the world a better place.

Technology: All-Electric Flying Car (Video)

Yes. We have posted on flying car tech, but this car right here ninja… this looks straight outta Star Wars… Trek… GI Joe! True vertical take-off and landing in a sleek design. Usually, we’d expect this to be a military thing for some time before it becomes a civilian product for consumption. But naaaaah son. LOOK at WHERE they are demoing this; right on the roadway!

Flying cars, that perennial dream for futurists that always seem to be at least five years away, may be a little closer to reality than we realize. A lot of prototypes have been showcased recently, and a lot of money is being tossed around. More people than ever seem to buy into the crazy notion that in the near future we’ll be buzzing between rooftops in private, autonomous drones. Today, Munich-based Lilium Aviation announced an important milestone: the first test flight of its all-electric, two-seater, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) prototype.

Amazing Landing Of A Boeing 777 at Frankfurt Airport (Video)

An amazing technological feat – a plane transforming and landing on its own feet – whether it was an animation or not. For the record, yes, it was. Watch, and you see if you can determine what ‘gave it away.’

(Still hella cool.)

Vinyl Destination | “DJ’s In Paris” With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

DJ Jazzy Jeff with another Vinyl Destination episode, DJ’s In Paris going hard all across Europe. Top highlights? Number one’s GOTTA be DJ Ferno taking in the first-time-in-Paris experience with childlike wonder. Follow that IMMEDIATELY with Rich Medina talking with the crew right after the Paris leg, just before catching a train to Amsterdam for a break. That’s two. Round out the top three with Jeff’s closing comments about his back-to-nature themed room. Hilarious!

DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Vinyl Destination crew end a 10 show, 10 day run in Paris. It’s DJ Ferno’s first time in the City of Lights, so he explores the city and takes in some sights. After a few verses of “Mama I Made It,” it’s off to the gig. Jeff has a show with a dear friend, Rich Medina. The next stop is Amsterdam. With Rich joining the fun, the guys share some valuable information that makes him rethink his phone service. Feeling refreshed after some much-needed time off, the crew gets back in full gear with shows in Dresden, Germany, Warington, England and Oslo, Norway. Along the way, “Tickle me Ferno” emerges and Jeff finds out a tree grows in his hotel room.

Work hard. Party hard. Sure. But when you DJ, the party’s where you are – the Vinyl Destination (boom)!

He also brought along Minneapolis emcee Brother Ali for the ride as well…
