What We See Is Not Always What We Know

What We See Is Not Always What We Know

Be a part of one of the most surreal documentary’s that take the viewer in and out of emotional rides that range from pure theatrical apathy to teary scenes where the human emotional makeup is tested. The documentary One Of Us shows how human interactions and relations can be the most difficult and how our personalities aren’t what is on the surface, what we are isn’t what we are on the deep inside. We can see from this story that the journey to find oneself is a rabbit hole where we can be lost forever with a shattered identity or find who we really are and what the person you see in the mirror really is. This documentary is amazing for anyone who have personal struggles with their identity. A perfect fit for anyone who wants to see a real-life example of an identity struggle and how their hardships have been overcome.

    One of us explores the opaque world of Hasidic Judaism by having a cadre of amazing heroes. Through unique and personal access in the span of 3 years, acclaimed observational filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady explore the lives of three courageous those who have recently made a decision to leave the insular ultra-orthodox community at the trouble of most else, including human relationships with their members of the family and–in one case–their personal basic safety. With a hypersensitive and compassionate eyeball, One of Us chronicles the achingly cinematic trip of individuals searching for a personal flexibility that comes only at an extremely high cost. This is sophisticated and frequently explosive subject material, and in analyzing it, the wonderful team of Ewing and Grady tread as carefully as they can, given the constraints they’re under.

    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

    We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

    On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

    Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

    1. Smart Door Locks

    A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

    2. Smart Kitchen Tools

    Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

    3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

    If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

    4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

    These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

    5. Nest Thermostat

    This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

    6. Smart Lighting

    Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

    7. Google Chromecast Ultra

    Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.
