You might want to listen to this one: http://www.radiolab.org/story/91725-words/
It seems pairing to directions like that ('i.e. left of the blue wall') requires higher level cogitative function that does not develop right away in humans.

That said, Amazon has rolled over to UPS for me and just getting them to leave the package at all is a struggle.

The situation in Ferguson is not isolated. It is a symptom of failure to govern in the public interest. #Ferguson   #NotInMyName

I love how easy it is to add new software to a Linux system. I've got a 3rd Gen iPod Touch that I wanted to sync music to. Apple has made it deliberately difficult to do this without using their proprietary iTunes platform, but no worries, some clever folks have freed you from Apple's "Hi, can we sell you something today?" software.

Simply install ifuse and gtkpod (in +Ubuntu on my netbook, that's as easy as "sudo aptitude install gtkpod ifuse" in a shell window and waiting a moment). Presto! Faster than installing iTunes on either windows or MacOS, too.

The upcoming release of Powershell will have a similar solution.

LinkedIn just suggested I follow Deepak Chopra. LinkedIn doesn't understand critical thinking skills, apparently.

It suggested him to me a few months ago. I assumed their algorithm was busted.

Fun facts: When brute forcing MD5 passwords, my primary machine at home (AMD 8-core, 4GHz) can guess 7.4 billion passwords per day. How strong is your password?

Do you love The Current? How about groovy furniture? They're giving away a pod chair - a perfect place to curl up and listen to your favorite tunes.

A few of these sunflowers beside our house are already starting to droop. I figured I should take a picture while they're still alive. ;) +Michelle Los +Joseph Gamache

My good friend Marie has a bunch of fantastic cookbooks already published, and here's the next one in line. I'm lucky enough to eat the amazing things she makes on a semi-regular basis. You can have the next best thing: a great deal on the pre-order of her cookbook! Whether you're gluten-free or just trying to eat healthy, check this out.
 
Hey all,

Almost a year ago, I started to develop my new gluten-free cookbook, after successfully funding it on Kickstarter.  

Well, I'm happy to report that the book is finished, off to the printer, and is set for an October 15 release date. Most of the wish list recipes that had been mentioned have been included - recipe development was a wild success! Everything is as good or BETTER than "the real thing" - in particular, I can't see using all-purpose wheat flour on cookies ever again, even when baking for non-gf friends.  The gf ones are just SO much better - taste AND texture!

When I started this book, I wanted it to not only be a great book for those who have to be gluten-free, but also a great resource for those wanting to try out new flours. With all of the education about Celiac and other gluten issues, alternative flours have never been as varied, affordable, or as easy to obtain as they are now - and SO many of them taste better and provide much better nutrition than wheat flour.  

Among the highlights, I have tortillas that have the proper texture and don't rip, pitas that taste just like Jimmy Johns' bread, proper fish and chips (and other pub grub!), and amazing perogies. I am SUPER proud of the results! If you're on Facebook, be sure to check out some of the photos on the book's page, https://www.facebook.com/BeyondFlour

The book will retail for $24.99, and is currently available for $19.99 as a pre-order discount until Oct 10. The pre-order discount is exclusive to my website, at http://www.celebrationgeneration.com/blog/beyond-flour/

Thanks again for all of your inspiration and input when I got started!

Marie

If you are are expecting privacy you are not paying attention. Most all places these days have an exceptable use policy that you are shown at hire. Mail on a computer you yourself do not own is property of saud company. Mail to the work address of someone you know, is property of that company. This is not a secret by any means.
