[SPOILERS] True Detective Season 3 Finale, What happened to those little kids?

Black History Month is coming to an end and I want to give a major shout-out to my favorite actor, Mahershala Ali, who wowed me yet again, in his lead role as Detective Hays in HBO‘s True Detective.

Ali plays a veteran ranger who spent his time mostly alone in the woods before spending most of his years as a detective. He watched his partner Roland West (Stephen Dorff) climb the ladder of success while he spent years on desk duty and being ignored despite is incredible skills. In the Purcell mystery case, West traveled through the woods with a full team and police dogs, searching for two missing children. But it was Hays’ intuition and skills that found the dead boy. West is white, Hays is black, and we know this story all too well.

Infinity Pool at Riu Palace Hotels and Resorts in Los Cabos, Mexico Aug. 2016/@CQBalthazar

We all love to travel. Or like the idea of getting a way. But what happens when you’re afraid to go to a different country for fear of something irrational happening to you like a scene from Taken? You travel with family or a tour guide.

Safe travel with family

I traveled to Cabo with family and we stayed at a resort. One night we ventured out and went downtown to a few clubs like Mandala and Avaquinta. However, the guy who took us from the airport to the resort told us that this part of Mexico was one of the safest places to travel into town. Continue reading

3oK+ Hits on Trending News Articles, Latin Post

Fincham.Newsroom photoI remember the first time I had something published online. It was such a big accomplishment for me and I was just  16 years old.

Now with blogs being easy to publish, the biggest “accomplishment” in anything via the web is to see how much hits you can get. It may not be a lot to other people but making over 30,000 hits on one story is a big deal for me at this point in life.

Tips? Finding something interesting to write about usually helps. Also, some other popular genres like entertainment and gaming will automatically draw people in. Especially if you’re talking about TV show spoilers.

Here is a link of me writing about my favorite TV show for the Latin Post:

Another story, with more than 30K hits was based on a study:
