VERY Cool Facts and Effects.
How director, Christopher Nolan, and physicist, Kip Thorne, combined CG effects and scientific reality to create the most accurate visualization of a black hole in film history.

Space Wars: the final frontier
Elon Musk shares his views of Nasa's investment into his company as well as Boing. While Boing received more money, Elon fires a couple shots across Boing's Bow by saying his company can provide much more for much less money. Boing's counter statements are also somewhat comical. I think Boing's feelings were hurt. The poor wee multinational corporation.
After two companies were awarded commercial space flight contracts by NASA, the gloves are off.

Most grown ups begin sentences with capital letters and "yea" is spelled Yeah. Plant's "Grow ups". I matured to adulthood. Then I began contributing solution's. You claim you're "grow up". You can too. "DEPORT DEPORT ..." is an avenue but we've implored congress come up with a real solution.

I peeped you're G+ page. You claim "real' Americans are losing jobs to undocumented workers. I agree with you to a certain extent. Grown ups know that isn't the key issue our economy is tanking. (1) The ability to compete in a viable employment marketplace and sell yourself is to present your hired skillset as an asset to the growth of a business. What else can you suggest to keep America moving forward.

A Question for my fellow Samsung (Android) Galaxy Ace 2 owners/users.

I have had very little success with any Bar Code Scanners. I have downloaded and tried several with minimal if any success, including "QR Code Reader" and one simply called "Barcode Scanner".
I want to be able to use my phone to scan those Square Codes (whatever you call'em ?).

I have only dl'd and used Free Scanners. If it will actually make a difference, I will purchase for the right price.

I would love to hear what others have used and recommendations of RELIABLE Scanner Apps.
Thanks in Advance.

I was just reading a post re: The HORROR it would be to have Ted Cruz run for President and it reminded me of this Hilarious Web Page developed when the threat of Sarah Palin being Pres, only a heartbeat away.
Check this out. It's HILARIOUS.
As you move your Cursor around and over different objects in the room, you will see that you can Click on many things.
Each time you click, you may see something different happen. For example, there are several things that happen when you click on the Closet Doors repeatedly.
This is one of the BEST webpages I have EVER Seen. !!

Oh this will certainly have the "Drill Baby Drill" crowd freaking out !!

I bet they'll also find some excuse to Impeach him too (even though Obama is completely aware of his Constitutional Rights and Powers).

WTG Obama and Congrats Alaskans.
President Obama just took action to protect one of America’s greatest national treasures: Alaska’s Bristol Bay.

Mountie wants his cake (Pot) and eat it to !
But he has a prescription for Medical Marijuana ... so why not ?
When will Canada just Legalize Pot ?
I'd say it's about time we do considering the Majority of Canadians which includes non-users of marijuana, are in favor of legalization or decriminalization now.

Story
Introduction
I have been self employed for most of my adult life. However, after becoming a Certified Building Code Official (BCQ - Bldg. Code Qualified) in 1996, I began working as a Municipal Chief Building Official & By-Law Enforcement Officer. I became a CBCO in 2000 (Certified Building Code Official ... similar to BCQ however, one must have minimum 3 years as a Government Employee to qualify as a CBCO).

I did this work for almost 7 years total and worked for several different, relatively small Municipalities. I retired from doing Municipal Inspections for several reasons, not least of which is due to having a bad back (old work injury). Before, during and following this work, I continued to operate "HomeTech" for a total of 20 years. HomeTech offered Arch. Design/Drafting/Consulting Services, Private Bldg Inspection and "Arch. Forensic Inspections & Expert Witness Services". The latter was utilized by those who have been "taken for a ride" by "fly-by-night" contractors and/or delinquent Municipal Building Inspection Departments. I boast a 100% success rate for all legal actions.

I was forced to closed HomeTech in Oct. '09 thanks to the Global Economic Meltdown. Poor finances forced me to retire my membership with the OBOA (Ontario Building Official's Assoc.). As such, I can no longer utilize the CBCO after my name. In other words, I am once again, "just yer average Joe".

Since closing the above mentioned business, I have been working hard at starting a new business call "Models To Globe". Most recently I just uploaded the beginnings of a New Website. The new business involves mostly "3D Geo-Modeling" but will also include some Google Gadget type web page enhancements for businesses that I Geo-Model. My new business website is at www.modelstoglobe.com.

I have been using SketchUp since v4 and ultimately purchased and presently use v7 Pro ... which I absolutely love.
