The Mickey Miles podcast is hosted by Mike Scopa and Michelle Scribner-MacLean which is focused on runDisney. If you’re into running, then you’ve got to tune in to this podcast because there are many things to learn in each episode.
Episode 66 is a recap of what happened at the Expedition Everest Challenge, and about what the hosts experienced in the event. The current race was family-oriented, unlike the earlier versions of 5K, and presented its own unique challenges and perks as it was more of a laid-back event compared to the previous marathons.
The most anticipated season, summer, is here. Why? It’s because of the films that will be shown this time. This year, we are thrilled to see so many notable flicks that we’ve been looking forward to watch.
Here are some of the movies (best and worst) to watch.
The Great Gatsby (May 10)
An all-star cast and an all-star movie soundtrack have transformed a boring old-school novel into one of the hottest films of this season. Baz Luhrmann's theatrical direction also makes for a grand visual feast on screen.
Star Trek: Into Darkness (May 15)
One of the most popular sci-fi series of all time, Star Trek,'s reboot has received good reviews, and the latest installment could be another hit. But critics may not like how Abrams handled the plot as well as the action scenes.
The Hangover Part III (May 24)
Expect more hilarious misadventures with the gang, though hopefully this installment would bring us something fresh as compared to the first two movies.
Fast and Furious 6 (May 24)
It seems like this series will never end. As long as it keeps racking up at the box office, there would definitely be another installment of Fast and Furious.
Man of Steel (June 24)
This could be the most anticipated film of all the films to be released this summer. We have a new Superman/Clark Kent in James Cavill! Although it's a new reboot, hopefully this will do justice this time to one of the most influential superheroes of all time as the first remake flopped.
Monsters University (June 21)
It’s the prequel of Monsters Inc., which is said to be the worst Pixar movie to date. This time around, let’s see if it will bounce back as one of the best.
The Lone Ranger (July 5)
It’s good to see Lone Ranger on the big screen because its popularity has long since faded. Newcomer Armie Hamer plays the role of the masked man, and with Johnny Depp in the cast, we might be up for a lot of laughs.
R.I.P.D. (July 12)
In this M.I.B. meets Ghost Rider meets Ghostbusters adventure, Ryan Reynolds plays a cop who gets murdered and joins a police department in the afterlife that hunts down criminals. Jeff Bridges also stars here.
Art is one of the things that helps us in relieving stress and this podcast helps enlighten us further about its disciplines.

Guys, are you acting your age? And ladies, do you want to know find out if your man’s being immature? If your answer is ‘yes’ then I suggest you watch this video from YouTube user Ryan Higa (a.k.a. NigaHiga) to find out. In his hilarious video he reenacts scenarios that exemplifies what he thinks are stuff that mature guys shouldn’t be doing from handling an argument to making jokes.
Although I personally agree with most of what was presented (especially the part about fighting), there are a couple of examples there that I’d like to beg to differ on. Then again, the video is listed under comedy so one shouldn’t take the material (too) seriously, plus, Ryan did say at the end of the show that the examples he stated are exaggerated so there really ought to be no problem. Right?
Anyway, enough with the details and just watch the video yourself and find out if you’re guilty of immature behavior. If you think that one or few of the examples he has given are debatable (I know I do), feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
Can You Take this Photo Please is hosted by award-winning comedian Justin Hamilton and multi-skilled Bron Robinson, featuring hilarious tales, sketches, and stories about anything under the sun.
This episode features comedian Ronny Chieng as guest. His onstage persona is very funny yet relaxed, not at all aggressive. But when he isn't in the limelight, he's just as laid-back and easy to get along with. As what Justin emphasizes, there are stand-up comedians that people don’t like when they’re already off-stage, and good thing Ronny Chieng isn't one of them.
Chieng discusses how he discovers and creates his written material which is narrative in style, entertaining the most ridiculous questions, how he started out being a stand-up comedian from watching Seinfeld, his background (half-Malaysian, half-Chinese), and his other experiences on and off the stage.
Listen now and enjoy more than a couple of laughs with the show!
Waterskiing is a sport that requires a lot of lower and upper body strength, plus good balance and endurance, and of course, a love for water and extreme sports. These all take years of training to develop, so how come a 7.5 month-old baby has successfully mastered the waters, as shown in this video? Check it out!
Yes folks, this adorable child did it and he’s way better than most of us! And he seems to enjoy it too and having a great time. He just may be learning this sport, but heck, he’s not even reached a year old and he’s already this awesome!

In this day and age, technology has ruled every aspect of living so one of the most important things to learn is how to use the computer. This skill is definitely required for individuals to meet the needs of the economy.
Michael Zamansky sits down for an interview at Yahoo Finance’s The Daily Ticker where he pushes for an upgrade in the level of education, where it should have computer science as part of the curriculum. Since computers are everywhere nowadays, it’s better for everyone to learn how to use them because so many jobs now require computer proficiency as a basic skill.

According to Zamansky, learning computer science in high school or middle school will help fill plenty of job vacancies, since the tech community often complains about not finding enough qualified workers.
Right now, it seems that the board of education refuses to address Zamansky's proposition for several reasons, but given time, perhaps it will realize that more American citizens will benefit from it by helping the economy rise through their technological skills.
Pain and Gain is the latest film by acclaimed director Michael Bay which stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie. This is Bay’s version of a low-budget style indie film despite showing off big muscles and ammo on view. The action-comedy tale is based on the true story of a group of personal trainers in Miami back in the 90's.
The story was inspired by real-life troubles they experienced, kidnapping, extortion and murder after chasing an American dream that went terribly wrong. The film features a lot of violence that include shooting, chasing, fighting, and torture, as well as gratuitous sex and sexism, and drug use.
So this film is not your typical wholesome action-comedy flick, so parents should be wary of allowing their children to see this.
