Amazon is planning to crush Netflix in movie theaters? I'm telling you, the fight for control over streaming consumption is coming to a movie theater near you. Bob Barney, the marketing and distribution chief of Amazon Studios said, "All of the company's films will be released theatrically." They are also planning to deliver, "an aggressive marketing campaign to bring audiences to the theaters." Amazon Studios is best known for its successful television series, including Mozart, In the Jungle, Transparent and others. They now want to up the ante and beat Netflix at their own game. At least there's competition being created. The free enterprise system makes everything better. That's what makes America Great. We are only 5% of the worlds population but we are 25% of the economy. Capitalism is the reason.

On this day 10 years ago, American swimmer Michael Phelps was on his way to setting the record for most gold medals earned by an individual athlete. He also was setting a world record in every single event practically. The Baltimore kid who was diagnosed with severe ADHD, and medicated during the school each week, proved his English teacher a fool for saying he would never be successful. The retired athlete has co-authored several books, including: No Limits: The Will to Succeed, and a children’s book. With a total of 28 lifetime Olympic medals, Phelps is the most decorated Olympian ever. It's satisfying hearing that Phelps never gave up and ignored negativity that went in his life. If he can do it, anyone can. Be successful in life he proves like many before him, never give up.
