Hey Congress.. instead of piggy backing amendments on bills, vote for individual bills.. It means more votes but votes on an item not many.  Highway bill... vote for highways. don't add World Bank.  #idiotsinwashington

If it such an important document then it should be made public and understood by the economic and political leader of the nations involved.  I think they are afraid that the details of the agreement will get published and true nature will be revealed.
President Obama took his campaign for a free trade deal to the world headquarters of Nike Friday, where he's extracted a pledge from the world's largest athletic shoe company that it will add 10,000 U.S. jobs.

There seems to be amazing things to do and see no matter where you go!!  Looks like a lot of fun!!!
Last minute trip this week, since Kris ended up with a day off!  Yay!  Our first hotel choice, New Sanno, was full.  Darn.  So, we decided to try out Hardy Barracks, another military hotel option in Tokyo.  We've never stayed...

If the Democrats don't like and and the Republican's haven't read it... Why in heck is the President so gung ho?  Bet he and his 300 closest friends will make millions from it starting in 2017....  Bets?
The president, battling for passage of one of the final initiatives of his presidency, said liberals opposed to the accord were “just wrong.”

help needed.  photo, video, sound files scattered over 3 internal drives and 3 drives from old systems that still have data on them.  I want to tame the beast, get organized and find the duplication. Largest drive is 1 TB.  Current C Drive is 240GB, other internals are 500G and 1 TB.  C Drive is full, only 45GB on 500GB drive and 271GB on 1TB...  Willing to buy a bigger internal or external but want to keep costs down. Any Ideas?

I did some research on HDs when looking to upgrade my machine earlier this year. For reliability the best current brand is Hitachi(you will see them as HGST deskstar) followed closely by Western Digital. You will certainly pay a little more for them, but that typically comes with quality. You don't have to buy top of the line versions of course. Low end for 3TB around $125 and 4TB around $160.
As far as internal vs external as Clayton mentioned it depends on if portability is something you are considering. You will pay a little more for external due to the additional hardware and some of them are really expensive. I don't have experience with external hardware so not certain who makes a good piece of hardware - so I'll bow to Clayton in that area.
Something else to consider is getting 2 - having one as a back up. Obviously something you can get later.

It is up a very long and rough dirt road but is shown as a jewel of a resort when we arrived. You are at 7,000 ft and the air was clear and dry. All the services were great with a room that was down a path but on the doorstep of nature. I highly recommend the Lodge as a place to stay on your Kenyan Safari.

We stayed at the Intrepid's Lodge and had an excellent experience. The Tents we stayed in were first class with an en-suite facility that all our needs. The food and service was great. I highly suggest that April is a great time to visit the reserve. We were up close and personal with all the wildlife that the reserve has to offer. It was a wonderful start to our two week Kenyan Safari.

Our second stay at Legends Edge. A perfect place to "relax". This is a small resort, two buildings, pool, hot tub (large), Tiki bar, activity center. We spent most of our time here without leaving the pool area. It was a time to relax. It is close (a few miles) to Panama City Beach activities but is out of the mainline... GREAT STAY
