Her name is Marijuana Pepsi, and she just got her doctorate


Marijuana Pepsi embraces the name as proof that you can overcome any obstacle in life and achieve your dreams.

Her mother, Maggie (Brandy) Johnson, who still lives in Beloit, picked out her name and proclaimed that it would take her around the world. Her sisters, one older and one younger, got relatively common names, Kimberly and Robin.

Teachers, classmates, bosses and other people in Marijuana’s life pushed back against her name and teased her. Some suggested she go to court and change it. Some flat out refused to call her that or insisted on Mary, which she rejected.

As much as people blamed and judged her mother for the name, Marijuana credits her mom with making her the strong, balanced, entrepreneurial woman she is today. Her father, Aaron Jackson, lives with his wife in Chicago and is a devout Jehovah’s Witness.

She embraces the name as proof that you can overcome any obstacle in life and achieve your dreams. People may hear the name and picture someone spaced out on the couch, but they couldn’t be more wrong.

Will Smith – Pursuit of Happiness


Considered one of the best motivational speeches, this famous motivational speech from the 2006 film, Pursuit of Happyness, features Will Smith and his son playing basketball.

At the start of the clip you’ll see Smith’s son (his actual son, Jaden Smith) playing around with a basketball, and he shouts out “I’m going pro!”

After hearing this, Smith decides to try and level his son’s expectations, mentioning that he himself never really excelled at basketball, so his son shouldn’t expect to either.

His son is visibly disappointed by this comment, and Smith notices this.

Smith then proclaims: “don’t ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something, not even me.”

“You got a dream, you gotta protect it. You want something, go get it. Period.”

This motivational speech is a special one. Even though both Will and Jaden Smith are acting, they’re still father and son, and you can see how this scene reflects their own family dynamic.

It’s a short motivational speech, but it’s one of the best motivational speeches of all time, in our opinion

HISTORY OF ROLEX


The history of Rolex is inextricably linked to the visionary spirit of Hans Wilsdorf, its founder. In 1905, at the age of 24, Hans Wilsdorf founded a company in London specialising in the distribution of timepieces.

He began to dream of a watch worn on the wrist. Wristwatches were not very precise at the time, but Hans Wilsdorf foresaw that they could become not only elegant, but also reliable.

Pioneer of the wristwatch since 1905, Rolex is at the origin of landmark innovations in watchmaking, including the first waterproof wristwatch – the Oyster – and the Perpetual rotor self-winding mechanism.

For over a century, Rolex watches have accompanied explorers and achievers around the world, from the top of the highest mountains to the deepest reaches of the ocean.

Families belong together and not in cages


RSVP for a #FamiliesBelongTogether event near you. Tomorrow we take to the streets to tell Donald Trump and his administration to permanently end the separation of kids from their parents. Our demand is clear and not negotiable: Reunite families, end family detention, and end zero tolerance. All families belong together. Period. Tomorrow, June 30th, will be a “Families Belong Together” national day of action, with more than 600 events in all 50 states, and an anchor protest in Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C. Tens of thousands of people are expected to participate. The actions are focused on opposing the separation and detention of immigrant families. Right now, all the Republican bills to address this manufactured crisis are terrible and unacceptable. The Trump administration is saying the only options are separation or indefinite detention, but that is wrong. There is no reason for the vast majority of immigrant families to be prosecuted and kept in cages. They’re trying to trade family separation for jailing children in unlicensed facilities, which is unacceptable. RSVP for an event near you to put a stop to this. And help amplify our #FamiliesBelongTogether protests online by inviting your friends to join this campaign and call on Congress to end family separation and detention now.
