Inside the Mind of a Troubled Author

NJ EMT, future firefighter, published author






A new vending machine has been released which can print any book within minutes.

The Espresso Book Machine has access to 500,000 different books - the same as 23.6 miles of shelf space - and can even churn out a fresh copy of Crime and Punishment in just nine minutes.

Pages are printed at a rate of over 100 per minute and are then pressed, glued and cut to produce a pristine book.

Users simply pick the book they would like on a screen and wait for it to be printed … it certainly is a novel way of getting a new book.


I need this!


It feels 2014 now

On the eve of the Boston Marathon, we at Spartan Race, along with the country, pay tribute to all the victims and survivors of last year’s attack.
Pictured are athletes and citizens who lived through the events and won’t let tragedy grind them to a halt. This series shot by Robert X. Fogerty for Dear World captures the resilience of those affected that can’t be dampened. Please visit their site to learn more about these people’s stories and pay tribute. 

Boston is as strong as community as the world has. We are proud to be part of it. On Marathon Monday, we will be there and along with the rest of the world, we will be watching a city recover as one.

Oh also. My fellow EMTs/first responders. Be on your toes if you hail from North Jersey, or anywhere really. There is this thing going around that appears to attack the nervous system. I had four people tonight who had collapsed after having a high fever for half a day or so. Two of them wore masks and when we dropped the last one one of the ER nurses warned us that we should be wearing masks too. Just be careful.
