I will probably end up being banned from leaving reviews on their site in the future, but I was just being truthful, and the perfume really does make great cat repellant. (they say it will take up to 72 hrs till my review appears on the site)

California woman gets lost, gives birth, fights off bees, survives on apples and starts a wildfire.
A woman fought off bees, started a fire and survived on apples -- all after giving birth in a lonely stretch of Northern California forest, she told a Bay Area TV station.

"Getting ready to ask for that big promotion? Is it time to buy a new car? According to this study, you might get a better deal if you cry a little bit. Here, the researchers tested whether people who expressed sadness in negotiations were able to get a better deal. They found that breaking into tears does work by making the other person feel sorry for you, but only under certain conditions — for example, if the person crying is perceived as having less power, or if the other person expects to see their weepy negotiation partner again in the future."

The Minimum Wage Awareness Ribbon

What color is poverty? Or more precisely, what would be a suitable color for a Minimum Wage Awareness ribbon?

In the US, poverty has no specific color, it's more like the lack of a color, namely green, like our currency.

People that earn low wages can't afford to all simultaneously go on strike for a fair living wage. If they could, this country would come to a screeching halt.

So, what I am proposing is that anyone that earns less than $15 per hour, to take a stand and make yourselves publicly visible with the Minimum Wage Awareness ribbon.

Here's how:

   - Take any color ribbon and tie it around an object, such as a hairbrush handle.
   - Knot it and then tie it in a bow.
   - Now slide it off and wear the empty ribbon pinned on your shirt, blouse, or jacket, wherever you go.
   - Wear it to work, school, church, the doctor's office, grocery shopping...everywhere.

If anyone asks what the strange droopy looking ribbon is for, tell them "I make less than $15 per hour. That ribbon is tied around the cash I have left over, after I am done paying for all my expenses."

Maybe, just maybe, if we can get enough low wage workers wearing an empty droopy ribbon, it might make a difference.

It might get others to see just how many people are affected by poverty wages, that they are not just teens working part time for pocket cash, not the lazy or uneducated,. Maybe we can make everyone aware that they are our friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors...hard working people we see everywhere, every single day.

With enough awareness about how many people are affected by low wages, maybe we will have more support from the voting public to pressure the politicians in Congress to raise the minimum wage up to $15 per hour, so that low wage workers can have some cash left, that they could tie that ribbon around.

Are you with me?

Share, pass the word, wear a ribbon if you are affected, and make some ribbons for the low wage workers you know.

Actually +Gabrielle Aydnwylde, it's probably more correct to say it's extra hours put in to make the job work / keep the job / make you indispensable / etc... generally not overtime in the sense that it's been requested: often it's completely voluntary :( ... and totally unbudgeted (so there is a huge shock coming somewhere in the future)

One can find interesting things while digging for info on primitive methods for building housing structures.

"In 1984 Khalili, who had moved to California by that time, proposed to NASA that ceramic houses be built on the moon. Experiments were conducted by Khalili at McDonnell Douglas Space Systems laboratories to show how harnessing the sun could melt and fuse lunar soil into shapes and forms for building applications. A full scale model of the proposed colony was intended to be built in the desert outside of Hesperia, CA, where Khalili established his training school: the Cal-Earth Institute. The research received mixed reactions. Khalili was known as "quite a visionary" and thought of as "before his time" by, among others, the mayor of Hesperia, Jim Lindley. Only a few prototypes were built."

"The Internet portal that provides scientists in many Greek universities and research institutes with access to electronic journals from 27 publishers suspended many of its services on 1 July because the government has not provided the funds to keep it going.

Greece’s stormy economic climate has meant that the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-Link) has come close to shutting down multiple times over the past decade. But now faced with the threat of state bankruptcy, scientists are not expecting rescue funds to become available this time around."
The country's economic crisis is hitting researchers hard.

As I said, not my expertise. I've heard him mention he continues to introduce legislation despite his campaign. Perhaps some information can be obtained there?

The literal definition of a "shitty job"...

"Last year, Metro Vancouver collected 21,000 kilograms of dog feces from 54 bins at eight parks. The bins are collected by contractors, who open each bag by hand and remove the dog waste, which is discharged into the sewer system at the Iona waste water treatment facility."
Raymond Greenwood is hounding the city to fix a crappy situation. He has a bone to pick with all the plastic-bagged dog feces discarded in garbage containers in Vancouver.

Introduction

I am a self taught programmer and developer of time management/productivity tools and small desktop utilities, which I release as donationware.

You will never pay more than you can afford or more than you think my software is worth, because I allow you to set the price.

My most popular applications are Instant Boss and Lacuna Launcher.

I am also a very active member in the DonationCoder.com software enthusiasts community, and participate in a number of software related discussions, programming challenges, and occasionally donating my time to create custom software requested by members on the coding snacks section of their forum.

I am a very social person and I love helping people, especially helping others get the most out of the least. I also love free stuff, telling others where to find it, and giving away plenty of it, myself.

I like to create and give away free art, such as desktop wallpapers, screensavers, clipart, Paintshop Pro vectors and tubes, which can be found on both my art site and my personal blog.

I run an elearning directory of free, legally available, programming and technology related ebooks, so those that can't afford books can still have the resources needed to learn.

It can sometimes be hard to find these books, though, so I am collecting all the links and putting them in one place to make it easier to find the ones you need. My ultimate goal is to find and list every free programming related ebook on the internet.
