A 30 second review of 30 Seconds to Mars "This is War"

Haven't heard all of it yet. They seem to be trying a bit too hard for those stadium, cigarette lighter in the air moments. Like all the way through. Hence the samey-ness.

And 80s homage? But they'd have been burned as heretics at the time for trying to combine electronic, new romantic and rock. Makes them clearly too young to have actually been there...

Uh, hey Google!

Thanks for adding the + mention thing to the iPhone app, but you totally killed the keyboard to do it. No autocorrect, no return to alpha after punctuation, no double-space-for-full-stop.

Typing is now very painful.

Microsoft again clarifies that Windows 8 tablets won't actually run Windows apps http://is.gd/4O0S7m

Mismanaged expectations: you can choose bloat on an Intel platform so you've got access to all your traditional Windows software, poor battery life with an ugly interface that doesn't work with a touch screen, so they'll get bought and then returned. Or an ARM tablet that ought to have the battery life, sticks to a touch UI, but doesn't fulfil the promises Microsoft made, so will get bought and returned.

I suspect it's going to be a choice enjoyed by a very small number of people and MS will fail with tablets again, despite Bill Gates obvious passion for them years ago.

The Metro UI makes no sense on a desktop; classic Windows is foolish on a tablet.

Another short review (I tweeted this ages ago, and after many replays I stand by it).

The Resistance by Muse sounds like a Queen/Ultravox recording of a Gershwin opera based on a George Orwell libretto. Guaranteed goosebumps.

Rick nails it. Again.

I received this email today and I'm pretty sure it will be of wider interest. London's not at all handy for me, though :-/



Hi,

I wanted to let you know about a special day long conference in London on Saturday 15th October, devoted specifically to adult ADHD. The conference is the "1st National UK Adult ADHD conference - Practical Responses to Adult ADHD" and hosted by ADDISS, the national charity for ADHD. The keynote presentation “ADHD across the Lifespan” will be given by Professor Eric Taylor, one of the leading experts in the UK on adult ADHD.

I will be following his talk with a presentation of my "New Working Model of ADHD" that attempts to tie together the many different traits and experiences of adult ADHD into a coherent perspective; then builds from this understanding to offer strategies, approaches and ground rules for managing your ADHD issues and developing your ADHD strengths. For a full description of the model please see my website here http://simplywellbeing.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5bdce29695299c5f99ea9bbf3&id=79b46ea94a&e=b30fc81f0e.

Other talks in the morning are “The Diagnosis of Adult ADHD as a specific Learning Difficulty” by Dr David Grant and “Living with ADHD as an Adult” an interview with Luke and Colin. In the afternoon there are three streams of break out sessions to chose from including:

o “Managing your ADHD in the Workplace” - Jo Todd
o “Survival Strategies for young adults with ADHD” - Linda Fox
o “Relating to ADHD (ADHD and Relationships)” - Andrew Lewis
o “Parenting your young adult with ADHD” - a networking session
o “Adult ADHD and how Coaching can help” - Chris Mclanachlan
o “Finding ways to unwind and manage your emotions” - Colin McGee
o “Women with ADHD, the challenges” - Dr Nikos Myttas
o “ADHD and ADDictions” - Dr Max Zoettl

The venue it the Directory of Social Change, 24 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2DP, very close to Euston Station. Cost for the very comprehensive program is £95 (if you are a member of ADDISS it's only £60). Click here for joining details: http://simplywellbeing.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5bdce29695299c5f99ea9bbf3&id=31bf7a2785&e=b30fc81f0e alternatively call ADDISS on 020 8952 1515 or email holly@addiss.co.uk.

If you cannot make it (apologies if you are receiving at some extended distance) then as a small consolation I intend to publish my very, very overdue newsletter soon in October. In my defence for the delay I have been busy establishing a new Adult ADHD Centre in London, see http://simplywellbeing.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5bdce29695299c5f99ea9bbf3&id=3d439386c4&e=b30fc81f0e moving the ever growing monthly "Tear & Share" Adult ADHD Support Group to Central London (attendances over 30 now) see: http://simplywellbeing.us1.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=5bdce29695299c5f99ea9bbf3&id=d86805a134&e=b30fc81f0e failing to find any ADHD medication that helps me and coaching tens of amazing, funny, interesting and inspiring adults with ADHD. To be honest most of the delay however is just plain-old ADHD procrastination, too distracted by "Battlefield Bad Company 2" on my PlayStation!! Watch this space and be great to see you at the conference (book now so you don't forget!)....

Best regards

Andrew Lewis
ADHD Coach

Just WTF?

I'm guessing the failure is the lack of a press release for the churnalists to regurgitate...

NYPD Pepper Spraying NONVIOLENT Women IN CUSTODY

NYPD has these women penned in with netting, they are not acting aggressively towards the police and look terrified, and the NYPD sprays them with mace or pepper spray.

STILL NO MAINSTREAM MEDIA COVERING THESE PROTESTS

Oh. Nicely done Google+. If you reshare a reshared post it reshares the original and not the post you thought you were resharing. That loses the context and history, like new-style retweets.

All go read +Amy McLeod thread.

Naughty Apple. The Lion USB memory stick won't let you upgrade from 10.5 to 10.7 :-(

But 10.6 users have access to the cheaper version on the App Store.

Who is the USB stick for?

You can use Disk Utility to erase the disk and install a fresh copy....

Er, no, Morrisons, that's not a student essential. A traffic cone is, though.
