Motorola One Zoom

If you enjoy taking photos on your phone, please read about the Motorola One Zoom.

Motorola One Zoom 128GB, 4GB RAM XT2010-1, 48MP Sensor Quad Pixel, 6.4″ Full HD+ LTE Factory Unlocked Smartphone – International Version (Grey Techno)

$375 for a Motorola One Zoom is a great deal for those who love to take photos and enjoy a longer battery life (up to two-days).

The Motorola One Zoom recharges fast and is an overall good phone for a low-cost.

I love the night vision lens that works well! The night vision lens allows me to take photos of the stars and images that did not appear with a regular camera lens on the previous phones I’ve owned.

Google Pixels and the latest Apple iPhones are other good choices for taking excellent photographs but expect to pay much more for the iPhones.

Personally, I am content with the quality of the Motorola One Zoom. I paid more for mine in December 2019 than the ones advertised above. Even though I will receive a small commission from any of the sales of products advertised, I do recommend the Motorola One Zoom or Google Pixel for anyone who loves to take good quality photos on their phone.

Becoming Michelle Obama

First Lady

With all of the hate and racism in America and around the world, I cannot understand why people cannot see beyond what appears on the outside of a human being; especially, when what appears wasn’t a choice.

When posting other books on this website that related to racism, Becoming by Michelle Obama came up in the Amazon-related ads. She was and is a spectacular person who made her mark on the world when she became the first African-American First Lady.

Even though her becoming the first African-American First Lady is one factor used to define her, she was a spectacular woman before her husband become President Obama. Her memoir proves that she was no ordinary woman before she entered the White House, where, even she and her husband surely had to deal with the hate and racism that plagues America.

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • WATCH THE NETFLIX ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY • OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • NAACP IMAGE AWARD WINNER

“In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.

“In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.”
