  • (Day 632) I Trust iPrayer

    First came the iPod, then the iPhone. Now there’s iPrayer.

    Good news the Roman Catholic church has approved an app for people who have broken down trust. Sinners who are too busy to get to church can now confess online.

    According to the article below the application invites users to examine their consciences and confess to their sins. But it won’t replace the old-school booth. The app, which costs $1.99, just goes through the motions of confession, but church goers must see a priest for absolution. The Vatican has made major steps to embrace the 21st century. Just last month, Pope Benedict XVI gave his blessing to social networking, declaring, “I would like then to invite Christians, confidently and with an informed and responsible creativity, to join the network of relationships which the digital era has made possible.” Read more about the article here.

    From a trust perspective I wonder what you think about online confessions. Do you go to confession? Do you have concerns about who is reading these confessions and where they are being stored etc. or do you trust the church with some of your most private information? Vote on it here…

  • (Day 413) Is Trust Going Up or Down? Take the Poll !!!

    I found the poll above posted in USA Today, today – Is that redundant? It concerns me because as you know, trust increases and corruption decreases our quality of life.  This is very serious business and it will effect your life, guaranteed.

    I decided to host our own poll to find out if this is true. What do yo think? Is trust in the USA going up or going down. This is important, I really want to know what you think!

    Vote below. If you think trust has improved greatly in the USA over the last three years vote green +5. If you think it has vastly decreased vote red -5. If you think it is in between you can use any numbers on the scale. I look forward to seeing the results. Thanks you!

  • (Day 294) The Love Poll

    images-1The words Love and Trust are cousins, but if you have one do you automatically have the other? I would like to find out. Using this simple “love poll” do Love and Trust go hand in hand, can you have someone you love deeply but do not  trust? For example, maybe you have someone who you love unconditionally but you can’t trust them because they steal, lie or cheat.

    For this poll I would like you to think of the person that you love the most in the world and rank how much you trust them on the scale below. If you need more help understanding how to use the poll, CLICK HERE.

  • (Day 293) The Trust Scale And Homeland Security

    383px-Hsas-chart_with_header.svg

    The United States Government introduced a security scale consisting of five color-coded threat levels. They are intended to reflect the probability of a terrorist attack.

    Severe (red): severe risk

    High (orange): high risk

    Elevated (yellow): significant risk

    Guarded (blue): general risk

    Low (green): low risk

    According to wikipedia, specific government actions triggered by different threat levels have not always been revealed to the public, although the government has provided general guidance for civilians and federal agencies. Actions have included increasing police and other security presence at landmarks and other high-profile targets, a closer monitoring of international borders and other points of entry, ensuring that emergency response personnel were ready, and, in some cases, deployment of members of the National Guard and State Guard to assist local law enforcement on security details.

    The published terror alert notices have urged American citizens, especially those traveling in the transportation systems, to “be vigilant, take notice of their surroundings, and report suspicious items or activities to local authorities immediately.” In addition, DHS advises the public to prepare an emergency preparedness kit and a family emergency plan.

    How much do you trust the Homeland Security System?

  • (Day 175) Heros Or Zeros

    steroidsThe list is long, Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, Michael Vick, Marion Jones, Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Alex Rodriguez, Tiger Woods and now possibly Lance Armstrong?  Why are our heros turning to zeros? If you haven’t heard yet… Floyd Landis admitted today that he was doping when he won the Tour de France. That’s nothing new,  he was stripped the prize years ago. But now he’s accusing Lance Armstrong of doing it too. This bothers me because Lance has stood the test of time, he had beaten all the naysayers and come out clean.

    I sure hope Lance Armstrong does not turn out to be a fraud. His lawyers are saying that Floyd Landis tried to blackmail Lance and that Floyd is the fraud. All this stuff just undermines sports, it undermines bicycling and it undermines trust. Lance Armstrong is an inspiration to many, a cancer survivor who came back from near death to be a seven-time winner of the Tour de France. It’s what children dream about… they want to be like Lance. It’s why adults think it’s still possible… If Lance  can do it, maybe I still can do it too.

    When our sports heros fall the repercussions are enormous. The sound is heard around the world, not just by adults but young impressionable minds. If Pete, Barry, Michael, Tiger and now Lance..?..  cheat, then surely everyone is doing it, right?  If they  get ahead this way then everybody must be doing it, that means I need to do it too.  It is a subtle and insidious message but it is there… the way to become a champion is to cheat … Is it worth it?  Think about  it, you become rich and famous and if you are caught,  you just deny deny deny and blame others.  You might even get on late night TV or a reality TV show. The same is true for a CEO’s that cheat,  fake it and you’ll make it… get fired, blame others, people have short memories. You can cruise  on your yacht while people are forgetting. Maybe  I am starting to sound like a critic and it is time to switch to something more positive.

    When I look around,  I see real hero sitting next me on airplanes, landscaping a property, checking out groceries, or serving people in a restaurant. Everyday people that are making it happen one step at time.  They are moms and dads and sons and daughters, people that face challenges and do the right thing anyway. Of course, I am talking about you. I know you are working hard at “IT” (Integrity and Trust) or you would not be here.  I believe in you, I believe in what we are doing here and for the sake of the generations to come I sure hope Lance Armstrong did it right.

    Take the Poll:

    What level of trust do you currently have for Lance Armstrong?

  • (Day 168) Trust BP ?

    BPOn earth day I wrote “Trustees of the planet”,  since then things have gotten even worse. Oil is gushing from the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and it has us all pretty concerned.  We trusted the people drilling offshore to do it right.  We now have a disaster of epic proportions. The slick is having devastating effects on the ecosystem and economy in the region. We do not yet know how bad it will get, or how long it will last, or who we should hold accountable. Who is responsible for this mess? BP and its subcontractors testified in Congress that the other person was responsible, it was so bad that even the President of the United States made a comment about the finger-pointing.  BP seems to lack the resources to stop the flow or clean up the oil that has already leaked. The well continues to spew from the ocean floor weeks after the accident.  I have heard BP CEO Tony Hayward say to the media that BP would clean this up and compensate the people for their losses. I have also heard him say the spill was relatively small compared to the volume of water in the Gulf, ouch! So is BP doing the right thing? Are they doing the best they can? Was it their subcontractors, or perhaps even the government to blame? One official, Chris Oynes, Associate Director of Offshore Energy and Minerals Management Program retired a month early, was he responsible?  What do you think about BP? Do you trust them?

    You can take the poll below and cast your vote for how much trust you have for British Petroleum (BP) right now.
