Nick Jonas still gets jealous

In his new song Jealous he sings about finding it hard to see other men checking out his girlfriend. (Credit: Nick Jonas via Youtube) Much like the Big XII conference, things are not good for Nick Jonas. With a hypnotic beat and a brief solo from Alvin and the Chipmunks, Jonas explains for 3 minutes why he is in a bad place called jealousy. But if memory serves us correctly, Jonas is not a stranger to hard times.

Who could forget Nick's masterful performance in Disney's Camp Rock? And if you just so happened to forget the first one, no need to worry because they made a second one. Cleverly titled Camp Rock 2, Jonas perseveres through great difficulty in order to help Mitchie defend her Camp Jam title.

Is Jesus all about that bass?

Meghan Trainor dancing in her music video All About That Bass (Credit: Meghan Trainor via Youtube)Meghan Trainor is all about that bass. Like a bear to honey or a shopper to Walmart on Black Friday, she is "all about that bass, bout that bass." But what is bass? To Beyoncé, bass is a beat that she sneezes on and the beat gets sicker (Partitions). To actor Paul Rudd, bass is a stringed instrument that is slapped so that you can produce a sound that makes faces melt and rocks socks off (I Love You, Man). To a few, bass is a type of large mouthed fish to catch in order that you can take a picture with it while you kiss the dead thing on the lips. But to Meghan Trainor, bass is that "boom boom that makes all the boys chase."

How to survive a free-falling elevator

A screen grab from Business Insider video entitled 'How to make it out of a free-falling elevator alive' illustrating the proper technique to survive a free fall in an elevator (Credit: Business Insider) Our ministry is located on the 10th floor of an office building in north Dallas.  I ride an elevator to and from our office at least twice daily and often more.  This equates to some 500 elevator rides a year.  Every now and then, the car I'm riding will shudder slightly, leaving me to wonder: what would I do if the cable broke?

If you ride an elevator often, you've probably wondered the same thing.  If so, you may be interested in a video going around the Internet, "How to make it out of a free-falling elevator alive." According to the video, there are nearly a million elevators in the U.S., each serving 20,000 people a year.  Elevators kill 27 of them every year on average.  Does this fact trouble you?
