"God Bless the Dream, the Dreamer and the Result." 

FaithWalk Clothing by William Renae

In today's world and in times past collaboration and partnering has been an instrumental strategy.  Partnering helps us to grow, learn, change and exchange ideas.  Even the Bible endorses partnering based on the scripture that says, "Where two or three are gathered, I am there."

I want to introduce to you a mother/son partnership, which currently launched a new clothing line.  The clothing line is called FaithWalk. The new line is created to encourage others to save themselves and to take control of their own destiny.

Renae Parker Benenson is a Mom, certified Chaplin (spiritual listener and encourager), writer and co-founder of FaithWalk.  William Marshall Parker II is a Son, entrepreneur, writer and co-founder of FaithWalk.  Together they compliment each other and have found support for their individual and collective growth and development.

They started FaithWalk because they get it.  They have figured out that their life is to get better spiritually, emotionally, financially, intellectually and physically it will be because they have prayed to God and believe that the Creator will equip them for the journey and fill them with unfathomable power to be and to do more than they can ever imagine.

'85 Bears Redo 'Shuffle' for Super Bowl Ad

The '85 Bears have redone their famous "Super Bowl Shuffle" for a cell phone commercial to appear during this year's Super Bowl. Former quarterback Jim McMahon and the rest of the team—even Mike Ditka this time—filmed the spot for Sprint. "I told them there'd be no dancing after 12 knee surgeries—I'm not doing that," McMahon told the Chicago Tribune. "I can barely get out of the chair. We're all old as hell now, man."

Actually, Dane Cook Is Funny

He knows he's branding himself unhip, but Steve Macone isn't backing down on the subject of Dane Cook: "Yes, he is probably more popular than he should be. Yes, there are other comedians equally deserving of fame." But "at this juncture, it's wrong to say, 'Dane Cook is not funny,'" he writes. "Because he is." And Macone considers the almost-universal backlash against his fellow comedian confirmation that Cook is a victim of his own arena-size success.

"Telling jokes in front of 20,000 people is not comedy," Macone writes in the Boston Phoenix. "Comedy is a conversation with the crowd. When you have to wait for the sound to reach the corners of a space so large that it can accommodate a full circus, the show usually turns into one." It creates a disconnect that forces Cook to exaggerate his bits. "Fans end up screaming more than laughing. It's this tableau that has turned many people off." But check out Cook's new DVD, filmed at a club rather than an arena, Macone suggests: "Isolated Incident has the feel of an acoustic album, where your reaction is likely to be, 'Okay, these songs can stand on their own.' "

Animal Collective's Rise Is Well Deserved

The rise of Animal Collective in 2009 is often attributed to concessions to accessibility, Jonah Weiner writes. “Going by the blurbs alone, you might assume that, in a few years, Animal Collective will complete its career-long metamorphosis into ABBA.” But that’s just not the case. The quirky indie band mixes pop and avant-garde in the same measure as ever; but now, it has “expanded the overtures its music makes to our bodies.”

“The gurgles and slurps are wetter and more viscous than ever, and the synthesizer stabs and bass thumps hit harder, even if they seldom resolve into anything so regular as a dance beat,” Weiner writes on Slate. Critics overlook the fact that the dizzy elation of the music is its selling point. "The 'avant-garde' and the 'accessible' work in concert—to the point where it can be hard to tell one from the other—to keep us curious and entertained. We may frequently feel at sea, but the water's warm."
