What is value to you? Is it monetary? Is it a standard of living? For everyone the perception of "value" is different. Value isn't a monetary thing all the time. It can be something that adds richness or meaning to your life. I just wanted to share this video because it speaks volumes and puts the importance of how we as a society need to be more giving and sharing. I see so many people who take and don't give back. Give to others with no expectations. Surround yourself with positive people and good things will happen. The relationships you build with this understanding will help you grow and build a support system. It's also important to know your own self worth. Do not sell yourself short in life. Everyone has influence and can make a difference. Even you reading this can make our world a better place. Do something good today! Your inner conscious and mind will thank you. :-)
**Updated June 27th: Andrew Wiggins was selected 1st Overall in 2014 NBA Draft by Cleveland Cavaliers.**
I met with Tristan and Anthony prior to the skills competition, I must admit basketball players take the best selfies because they've got the long reach as seen in the above photo. The event was held in conjunction with the NEW release of the Samsung Galaxy S5. I had the opportunity to check out the Galaxy S5 and was pleased with the smartphone. The key feature that impressed me with the Samsung Galaxy S5 is the camera. It has a function that allows you to have a photo in focus and the background blurred. It's an option that creates depth of field which I find lacking in other smartphones. It also has a very fast camera. With my Galaxy Note 3, I have to wait a bit to see the photo process; with the Galaxy S5 it's almost instant capture with no lag. I wish they could have that camera option on the Galaxy Note 3. The other cool and distinguishable feature of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is the Heart Rate Monitor and sensor on the back of the phone. Place your finger on the sensor and it will read your heart rate. I thought that was a unique option on a smartphone I haven't seen before. Cool phone!
Overall, it was a unique event to showcase the Samsung Galaxy S5 to a younger and active demographic. Very cool to meet two Canadian NBA players in a relaxed environment in Toronto. Thanks to Samsung and NBA Canada for a fun evening! I'm hoping Anthony Wiggins is selected first overall in the NBA 2014 Draft! Good Luck!
Last month I was invited to an exclusive event with Samsung Canada and a couple of NBA Pros. I had the opportunity to meet Tristan Thompson and Anthony Bennett. I was able to join both players on the court in a skills competition at HoopDome. These 2 NBA Pros are both from Brampton, Ontario. Anthony Bennett was actually the #1 NBA 2013 Draft pick last year. The 2014 NBA Draft commences tomorrow and it is expected that another Canadian Andrew Wiggins will be drafted first overall. That is quite the achievement for NBA Canada.

After watching this video, I realized that I have lots of old electronics lying around my house. The purpose of this blog post is to bring awareness to reduce, reuse, and recycle your electronic devices. I'm sure you're asking, "Why do all of this?" Well, there are a few reasons.
One person's junk can be someone else's treasure. For example, your old computer can be reused for its parts to create a new working computer or device. It also helps to divert obsolete items from going into the landfill to take up more space and waste. Recycling your electronics also gives opportunity for people to earn a living by creating jobs. A perfect example can be shown in the video below.
So if you have any old or obsolete electronics, you can sell or donate them. Or, you can use the free service provided by http://www.recycleyourelectronics.ca and enter your postal code to find the closest depot.
Thanks to @ecycleOntario I'll be giving away a $50 VISA Gift Card. All you have to do is send me a tweet (at @clickflickca) and tell me what electronic device(s) you would recycle or discard using the hashtag #BreakUpWithYourStuff.
Good Luck, and happy purging!
