As for "discontinuing having a free voice" I can only start by saying that if you choose to stop now..."they" win. It is your level of passion for truth and open mindedness that sets you apart from other artists (world wide) and without your insight the world becomes a much darker place to live...

Tunisia is counting on foreign investment in sectors like tourism, agriculture, renewable energy and textiles to help reverse its economic slide. And its interim government is keenly aware that the outside world is watching the country for clues to the future of the Arab Spring.

It really really doesn’t. It’s just Barnum de nos jours and as ever, some want their bread and circuses but some of us are far more discerning and are not at all partial to Cowell’s churned-out chav fodder. SOME of us are watching the latest sublime Adam Curtis documentary: And All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace. SOME of us like the media deconstructed. Some of us rarely stray from BBC2 or BBC4.

But when you look at an organization’s core competencies as its most valuable resources, you can begin to think of learning, creating strategy, and innovation as parts of a single long journey. The journey is iterative, interactive, and full of small steps. Nobody gets a big aha one day. Instead, there is searching; there are missteps, experiments, and doubt

Given that it’s all about BGT right now, will we ever know the truth of what caused Cheryl Cole’s American X Factor exit and non-admittance to the UK judging panel? I doubt it, as the people have spoken and what they want is the tears, the heartache, the visceral stories, whether good or bad. What use is a nation’s sweetheart without some pain? We’ve used up the divorce tears – here’s the next weepie Cole adventure.

Jozini: Without a lengthy journey ahead of them on Day Four, Bikers For Mandela Day were able to spend 67 minutes doing good at several projects in the Jozini area. In this, it was one of the most ambitious days for the expedition members when it came to spreading the Mandela Day ethos through action!

More people don’t watch BGT than do. Let’s not make the mistake of assuming that a large audience – thought tiny by TV standards in the 70s – is ALL the available audience.

Now that the stock market has once again taken a dive I think more people will be looking at hard assets to protect their money.

As a private loan lender I like to see where my money is, I like tangible assets like houses and land.

As I once read the stock market is the biggest form of gambling where only the brokerage companies always make money.

Consider joining a local networking or business referral group like a BNI, your local Ladies Who Launch chapter create your own. I am really not one to enjoy the early AM schmoozing with bad coffee in hand, but took a friend up on an offer and joined a local group when I first started freelancing. Just coming in as a guest led to my first lifestyle client, a high-end personal training gym, than I worked with closely through the next year.

Other options include buying your own business, lending money to someone you know, giving your money to a bank or insurance company (who in turn takes your money and invests it on wall street), or buying stuff and hoping that the value increases (like gold, stamps, or other commodities).

Alternative energy investment is a highly risky business. Even with provincial feed in tarrifs for solar such as what Ontario has there can be substantial risks when the tarrif is reduced.

You can also hire an attorney to write you a memorandum. You talk to an attorney and lay out all your questions- as you just did here- and they go and do the research for you and write you up a memorandum that summarizes the law in your state for you.

A scientific theory is a type of inductive theory, in that its content (i.e. empirical data) could be expressed within some formal system of logic whose elementary rules (i.e. scientific laws) are taken as axioms.

We only feel like we have wasted time when we are not doing things that we don't feel are worth our valuable time. The limited time we have. So see your time as the most valuable commodity you have and you will leverage your time and efforts into something Great!

Burn candles, poor the hot wax on the other person, if the wax is too hot for them blow out the candle after it builds up some wax, let it cool but make sure it's still in liquid form, don't wait to long, and then massage it in...also if you get the oily ones those work just as well..

Without seeing the video you made Ryan I understand your admiration for 2Advanced. I first heard of them when I bought the Flash MX Bible and they were featured in that book. You know you're doing something right when the publisher of Flash MX Bible wants you to teach a mod of that book.

up a few posts prior to going public and promoting your blog. This way when you do start the promotion side of things, you’ll have plenty of articles and information ready to be read by your incoming visitors. Have a good 20 or more articles ready before you start leading people to your blog.

Michael: Maybe it’s cyclical. Blogs have gotten a lot better in design as widgets and other elements have built in customization options. I need to redesign mine, it’s more of an example of the clutter we escaped. But I think you’re right that we risk finding it again IF we assume we need all of the buttons in question.

Unfortunately, here's where I screwed up. Linodes bit went perfectly, the images moved over and the server booted. Unfortunately, I hadn't cleaned up /etc/udev/rules.d/ and my virtual Xen nic got assigned to eth1 because of the new MAC address. This meant that dhclient failed to get me my shiny new IP.
