I am going to be walking from Beijing to London and the more people that know about my journey, the safer I will become.
People will expect me, people will know what I am doing. People will invite me into their homes, they will feed me, give me water and hopefully provide me with shelter for the night. They will give me directions, provide me with invaluable local info. They will fight for me, be there for me, provide me with care.
Help me let the world know about what I am doing. Help me stay safe. Alert the mass media. Tell your friends. Tweet about it. Do everything you can to make sure I am expected. Thank you in advance, sharing this post would really mean a lot to me.

Anyone who tells you otherwise is selling something.Follow great people. Work for great people.
3. Do you practice specific skills with repetition and intent? Athletes do drills. Musicians hone difficult passages. What do you do?

"Figuring out the value of a modular form as it balloons is comparable to spending a coin in a particular shop and then predicting which town that coin will end up in after a year."
"Guessing the difference between regular and mock modular forms is even more incredible, says Ono, like spending two coins in the same shop and then predicting they will be very close a year later."
Consider the fact that Srinivasa Ramanujan's & G.H. Hardy work is basis for RSA algorithm.

"nuclear winter" as a cure for #globalwarming but yes, there will be wonderful things too that will be developed, and we do need to keep our sense of humor. I am getting too cynical. I do love my iPhone and a lot of current tech.
