Home Schooled 16 year old Boy wins $100,000 college Scholarship

Home Schooled 16 year old Boy wins $100,000 college Scholarship

Siemens Foundation

Michael Viscardi, who is a homeschooled student from San Diego, California, won a prestigious high school science competition this Monday.  He won for the novel idea to solving an old math problem in the design of airplane wings. 

Viscardi, who is only 16 years old, won the top individual prize for the Siemens Westinghouse Competition in Math, Science and Technology.   The prize is a $100,000 college scholarship.

The judges at the competition were very impressed with Viscardi’s knowledge on math.  Constance Atwell, a lead judge and former research director at the National Institutes of Health stated, “He is a super-duper mathematics student.  It was almost impossible for our judges to figure out the limits of his understanding during our questioning.  And he’s only 16 years old.”  Home Schooled 16 year old Boy wins $100,000 college Scholarship


JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! FRANCE’S ROAD TO MECCA!

JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! FRANCE’S ROAD TO MECCA!

French Wine

Brother, can you spare a dime? How about a franc…a shilling…a raspbucknik? Got a wooden nickel or a bus token? We’ll take anything. We’re too proud to ride the rails…live is some hobo jungle; pick grapes so some capitalist winemaker can buy a house on the Riviera. That kind of life might have been good enough for Erich Hoffer, the famous dhimmi philosopher of the late 1930s, but he was an unbeliever; he never frequented anything but libraries, cheap gin mills and houses of ill repute. He wouldn’t have known a mosque from Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion.

How about a peso? You got a peso? There is no work for us in our homeland, the Dar al-Harb, yet we are citizens of France—born citizens; not wetbacks with the waters of the Rio Grande still dripping from our fevered brows. JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! FRANCE’S ROAD TO MECCA!


Vioxx Lawsuit - Merck & Company Trial Beginning in Heart Attack Case

Vioxx Lawsuit - Merck & Company Trial Beginning in Heart Attack Case

Vioxx

The case was brought by the widow of the 53 year old Richard “Dicky” Irvin who took Vioxx for a month to alleviate back pain.  Originally the case venue was New Orleans but has been moved to Houston because of the damage from Hurricane Katrina. 

The goal of the lawyers representing Evelyn Plunkett is to prove that Vioxx led to the death of her husband in May of 2001.  The defense claims that Dicky was in very good health before taking Vioxx.  Vioxx Lawsuit - Merck & Company Trial Beginning in Heart Attack Case

Walking on a Treadmill is good way to lose weight

Walking on a treadmill is good way to lose weight

Nordictrack Treadmill

Walking may not be the most athletic sport, but it can help an overweight person lose weight and increase their overall health.

Anyone that is overweight should always consult a doctor when starting a new exercise program, as you may have high blood pressure and other hidden ailments that may require a different goal when starting an exercise program.

If you work all day or have children it can be hard to get to the gym to work out, not to mention the extra expense involved with baby sitters.  If you have room to invest in a treadmill you can exercise when you wake up or late at night.  There are units that are available that are just a good as the gym models. Walking on a Treadmill is good way to lose weight


Pressure in Kids Sports

Pressure in Kids Sports

Authors Website

Pressure is part of all sports and its impact in kids’ sports is something we need to carefully evaluate. The spotlight is brightest in baseball; there is simply no place to hide. For the pitcher, batter, catcher and anybody the ball is hit to, all the attention of parents and peers is riveted on that player. In soccer, basketball or other sports, it’s easy enough to “blend in”, but not in baseball. I have tremendous respect for every kid who takes the risk and goes out to play ball ­ especially the kids who are not as talented; it’s not easy. Is there simply too much pressure put on kids to early? I don’t think so. As we evaluate the physiological aspects of pressure, the kid’s psychology, our own beliefs, and effective ways to deal with pressure, I’ll let you know why.  Pressure in Kids Sports

Basic Internet Protection with Firewalls  Virus Software and Spyware

Basic Internet Protection with Firewalls  Virus Software and Spyware

Firewall Software

Most security experts will tell you that you need three things to protect your computer from hackers.  You will first need a virus scanner to locate and remove viruses from your hard drive and email.  Grisoft makes a virus scanner that works well (AVG free version).  You will also need a program to scan your hard drive for spyware including Trojans and Keyloggers. 

The third thing you need is a good firewall.  Windows XP comes with a built in firewall, but most experts argue that this firewall is not sufficient.  A couple popular firewalls are Grisoft and Zone Labs.  Grisoft bundles their firewall with their virus scanner for $50 per year.  Zone Labs will sell you their suite of security products for $40.  The basic Zone Alarm firewall is free.  I have used both and run into problems with both.  Basic Internet Protection with Firewalls  Virus Software and Spyware


Picking a Good Web Host is Critical to Developing a Good Web Business

Picking a Good Web Host is Critical to Developing a Good Web Business

Who Is Your Web Host?

Choosing a good Internet Website Host could be one of the most important things you could do.  Is it going to be an easy set up?  Will they handle your domain Registration?  And the most important question is: How much will it cost?

Most web hosts will handle your domain registration.  Your job would be to figure out the best possible domain name like www.best-possible-name.com.  This is your URL where people can find your site.  Picking a host is just as important as this. 

As your business / company expands, you may want added features on your website.  Maybe you will want a forum / bulletin board for your customers and potential customers to discuss your products.  You might want to have a personal Blog.  These are all features you should consider before choosing a web-host.  Picking a Good Web Host is Critical to Developing a Good Web Business

Hyaluronic Acid, Botox, Collagen, Fat, or Radiesse – Which Cosmetic Procedure is best for Wrinkles?

Hyaluronic Acid, Botox, Collagen, Fat, or Radiesse – Which Cosmetic Procedure is best for Wrinkles?

Wrinkles

Got wrinkles?  You can go in for the major surgical procedure of a face lift, which will cost around $5,000 or you can opt for a quick trip for an injection to tame the wrinkles.  The facelift of course will last longer and not require frequent trips to the plastic surgeon.  The benefit to getting the injections is that the cost ranges from $370 up to around $1,250 for treatments that can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months depending on the type of treatment.  Hyaluronic Acid, Botox, Collagen, Fat, or Radiesse – Which Cosmetic Procedure is best for Wrinkles?

Botox

Plastic surgery is no longer just for Hollywood.  Plastic surgery is at an all time high among the masses of regular people as well.

Plastic surgery also called cosmetic surgery, ranges from major surgical procedures to minimally-invasive procedures like Botox injections.  It is also important to consider that the more complicated the operation, you will want the surgery in a hospital setting.  If you are having the operation in a clinic setting it may or may not be up to code.  You have a higher risk of infection and complications.  Infection is one of the risks anyone has when going in for surgery.  Cosmetic Surgery and Procedures by Plastic Surgeons on the Rise


Drinking Black or Green Tea will Reduce the Risk of Ovarian Cancer

Drinking Black or Green Tea will Reduce the Risk of Ovarian Cancer

Tea

New research shows that drinking just two cups of tea a day can lower the risk of developing ovarian cancer by almost 50 percent.  Previous research has shown that drinking tea can lower the risk of developing some cancers, but this new study indicates it can lower the risk of ovarian cancer by half.

The Swedish Mammography Cohort looked at 61,057 women who were between 40 and 76 years old.  At the beginning of the study 68 percent of the women said they drank tea at least once a month.  Most drank black tea. 

After 15 years there were 301 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  Forbes reports that Dr. Susanna C. Larsson said that “We found a lower risk of ovarian cancer associated with greater tea consumption."  Amazingly each additional cup of tea reduced the risk of ovarian cancer by 18%.  Drinking Black or Green Tea will Reduce the Risk of Ovarian Cancer

Are you offering your customers TOO MANY choices?

Are you offering your customers TOO MANY choices?

Are choices always good?

Are you offering too many choices to your subscribers? How reducing customer choices sells more.  It has been taken for granted that more choice is good for customers. But is this true?

New research says it's *not* true that more choice equates with more sales. The new research suggests that you are much better off as a marketer if you can identify a customer's needs and circumstances, and then present that customer with a *small number of choices* based upon what you have found out.

One reason why a good salesperson can increase sales is that a well-trained and experienced salesperson functions as a very selective filter. Rather than presenting lots of choices to the customer, the good salesperson *focuses in* on that special one or two choices most likely to excite the customer and get him or her to buy.  Are you offering your customers TOO MANY choices?


Special Loan Programs and Financing Help for Real

Special Loan Programs and Financing Help for Real

Quiz your Agent

There are many ways to get help buying a home.  There are outright grants and there are loan guarantees. We have sold a condo where the buyer got an outright gift from the city for a down payment. 

Whether you are buying or selling your home you should be aware of these programs and so should your Real Estate agent.  The agent should know what is necessary for writing an FHA backed loan.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides lenders with loan guarantees through FHA.  If the buyer defaults the government will step in and pay the lender off.  At that time HUD takes back the property for resale.  This guarantee makes lenders more likely to loan to home purchasers that they would not normally loan to.  Special Loan Programs and Financing Help for Real

Gingerbread House baking Competitions popular in the United States

Gingerbread House baking Competitions popular in the United States

A book for gingerbread house makers

Maybe they will have to add cooking competitions to the Winter Olympics.  You will find gingerbread competitions across the US this holiday season and you might be inspired to try making one this year.

On Food Network they broadcasted last night one of many gingerbread competitions.  The gingerbread houses on the show were terrific.  I was amazed at how detailed these gingerbread houses are.  Even kids are getting into the competitions in a child category.  One lady on the show said that she put in over 400 hours working on her gingerbread creation.  These are works of art that really would make anyone amazed.  Gingerbread House baking Competitions popular in the United States

EasyShare Viewer

Shooting a lot of pictures is easy for digital camera users. Shooting too many to conveniently keep on your camera's memory card can be a problem. Here're some great solutions.

Most of the time, digital camera accessories like a CompactFlash card, Secure Digital card or Memory Stick are sufficient for capturing a few hours of casual shooting.

But what about a really long day of photography like a wedding? Or how about going on vacation for two weeks? Do we really need to drag along a laptop computer so we can transfer our images and keep shooting? Or buy additional memory cards that we probably won't use again until next year?

New Consumer Reports Tests Question EPA Mileage Numbers

New Consumer Reports Tests Question EPA Mileage Numbers

Honda Insight Hybrid

With higher insurance costs and gas prices many consumers are looking for ways to save money.  Budding automobile purchasers are considering hybrid cars as a way to achieve that goal.  But are the hybrids really worth it?

It depends on who you talk to.  Some buyers complain that they are not getting the advertised gas mileage.  On an ABC World News Tonight story buyers are seen grumbling over what they perceive as a misrepresentation. 

The cars are put through a standardized Dyno-test that other cars go through to get the gas mileage figures.  The EPA has been doing this for years, but now that gas mileage has become an ever increasing factor for buying a hybrid, the numbers are being heavily scrutinized.  New Consumer Reports Tests Question EPA Mileage Numbers


A Guide to Traveling London through King’s Cross Station

A Guide to Traveling London through King’s Cross Station

King's Crossing

For visiting London, proximity to King’s Cross is the perfect location.  An intersection of six tube lines, including the Northern, Picadilly, and Circle Lines, to name a few, can get you virtually anywhere from King’s Cross. King’s Cross is also a train terminal, in the case that you are planning to visit the north of the UK.

But let’s not get off track and get back to seeing London via King’s Cross.  London, the cultural melting pot that it is, offers amazing and varied shops of anything you could desire. Located near the major shopping zones of London, both commercial and artisan.

King’s Cross is a convenient place for a shopping tour in London.  The city is also a magnet for great and creative minds, as is well known by all the thinkers, writers and artists who both came to and from London.  The wide range of museums and galleries reflects this intellectual breeding ground, and again, King’s Cross is a skip, hop and a jump away from many of these world-class museums.  A Guide to Traveling London through King’s Cross Station
