Trending: DJs Helping Veterans
You’re invited to give this Christmas story a happy ending...Once upon a time there was a DJ who saw men and women who had faithfully served our country struggling in the Season of Giving to provide for their families, and took to phone and Facebook. Asking only that friends, neighbors and fellow DJs donate the equivalent of one Starbucks Coffee or one trip to McDonald’s, the Caring Patriots Veterans Food Drive was born.
“It all started when one of my former DJs, Mike Cozzi, saw an item on the news about veterans so down on their luck that they couldn’t provide gifts or holidays meals for their families,” says DJ Keith KoKoruz. “That first year we fed one hundred and nine families. Since then, thanks in part to a DJ community gracious enough to give, we’re now feeding over a thousand veteran families and recently delivered more toys to the Marine’s Toys for Tots than the Chicago Bears.”
Thanks to your donations, Caring Patriots
“Next year we’ve been lucky enough to have secured a twenty-five thousand dollar donation from PepsiCo,” says Keith, who also donates his time and talent by DJing for the staging event. “That’s a big deal.”
But your help, this year and next year and the next has never been more important to these still-struggling families.
It’s important to give something back.

ProMobileDJ: with Julie Oshins
In January most of us create resolutions, or at least goals for the rest of the year, a proposed future we are hoping to live into. Then when December comes around… where did the year GO? I’m a huge fan of completion, which Webster defines as the act or process of finishing something: the state of being complete or finished.
How you can meet your goals (this year and next!)
I use something called the ELADGRA system, from Someday is Here by Jeanette Isabella. Divide a page into three columns using the headings Eliminate/Add/Grateful For. Close your eyes and relax. Let your mind wander and think about what you want to eliminate, add, and are grateful for. When you are ready, write down everything you can think of in the appropriate column. Be spontaneous and don’t overthink it! When you get stuck on what to write next, it’s time to stop.
Sometimes I set a timer for five minutes once I begin writing. I often do this exercise mid-year as well. Some items on your list may surprise you; others may be predictable (I have wanted to eliminate those same 10 pounds more than once!) You may not be able to imagine how you could add some things to your life, or where to begin to eliminate others. Don’t worry. It’s in your conscious mind now. Like goals, the items on your ELADGRA list will take varying times to realize.
Knowing what we are grateful for

The Gear Corner: NLFX Pro
The year has flown by and I hope it was a blessed and prosperous one for you. If it was very prosperous, it is worth mentioning that there is still time to take advantage of IRS bonus depreciation and Section 179 options to expense and more rapidly depreciate equipment purchase to reduce your tax burden for 2019!
I’m not an accountant, so it’s worth discussing this with your tax preparer but in the meantime here’s a helpful document from the IRS that explains it in... well... accounting language: irs.gov: new rules and limitations for depreciation/expensing under the tax cuts & jobs act
This will allow you to make qualifying equipment purchases
We’ve decided to sweeten the pot a little bit with some great end-of-year offers for you, as well. Apply for our NLFX Synchrony Card and enjoy 0% interest payment options on every purchase at NLFX, including a whopping 60 months 0% interest on a Denon Prime 4. That’s 5 YEARS at 0% interest (or enjoy some discounts on shorter payment options as well).
Video of the Month: Lizzo - “Good As Hell”

"Good as Hell", written and recorded by American singer and rapper Lizzo and Producer Ricky Reed. Originally released on October 7, 2016 through Atlantic Records and Nice Life Recording Company as the lead single from her debut extended play Coconut Oil, it was re-released in 2019 as a radio single, where it became a sleeper hit like her first hit, "Truth Hurts".
In a review for NPR, Hanif Abdurraqib praised the song's inspirational and motivational qualities, saying "[the song is] the anthem of both the night itself and of life in preparation for it: the saint that comes to you in the mirror when the lighting is bad, or the hair won't move the way you want it to, or when you've tried on all of the outfits and none of them seem right." Abdurraqib also called it "the rare song that can play at any point in a night out and resonate in each."

In 1990, the Italian government enlisted top engineers to stabilize Pisa's famous Leaning Tower. There'd been many attempts during its 800 year history, but computer models revealed the urgency of their situation. The tower would topple if it reached an angle of 5.44 degrees - and it was currently leaning at 5.5. What gives the tower its infamous tilt? Alex Gendler explores the monument's history.
