#TalentedTuesday: It’s A Pop OD.

“If you’re into motivational spiels….then go write a book.” — Andrea V.

This edition of #Talented goest to my #twitterfam known as @itsapopOD on the social network but Andrea Valeria on her vlog and everywhere else.

She has shared camera time with Britney Spears, Justin Bieber and even danced with the Rockettes–the itsapopOD versions of them (although she’s bound to chill with the real ones once Ryan Seacrest creates a show for her on E! *cough*).

I stumbled across AV, years ago, on Twitter when searching for bilingual journalists to follow (porque algun dia voy a ser un reportero que habla lenguas dos).

Yep! She’s not just a hilarious vlogger, at one point in time, she held down the hard news front for Bay News 9 en Espanol.

Quite frankly, I could not have been happier to make that follow button go blue because come to find out she wasn’t just news; she lives and breathes pop culture too.

Her overdose on pop started as a blog.

She then channeled her amazingly observant pop culture view into a YouTube channel and now she is nominated for a Shorty Award.

You don’t have to take my word or Shortys though check out some of her videos below.

If it was not for #7 this post wouldn’t be written, it’s one of my favorite vids and if the Library of Congress ever archives vlogs this one should be in there.

Visit AndreaValeria.com for everything pop.

#ConversationStarter: Honesty Always The Best Policy.

After four months on the job, a Yahoo CEO is out because he lied on his resume.

Scott Thompson claimed to have accounting and computer science degree.

Thompson embellished on the later and his resume padding extends pass Yahoo.

From CNNMoney.com:

False statements about Thompson’s degree stretch beyond his time at Yahoo, which began in January. References to a “computer science” degree also appeared in his online biographical information on PayPal’s website when Thompson was president of the eBay (EBAY, Fortune 500) subsidiary.

Before leaving Thompson told his board of directors he has thyroid cancer and is beginning treatments.

Yahoo media chief Ross Levinsohn will be named interim CEO.

Take home lesson: Honesty is always the best policy.

So let’s start a conversation. Have you ever padded up a resume?
