On My Way Back to Texas

July 8th, 2014

I guess that some way or another the power companies down in Texas know I am on my way back to the area of Corpus Cristi Bay. They probably know that I have been looking at houses down there, most likely one of the real estate people I have emailed has given them the idea. It is weird to get a couple of those click here emails from a power company, but then I can choose whichever one I want and of course it is a big deal to get your foot in the door before that other guy does. Unless they do something to make me want to dump them it is pretty unlikely that I will change my mind later on. Read the rest of this entry »


Energy Prices for Reliant Energy

July 3rd, 2014

I am going to try to get electricity hooked up at my new house today. I have recently purchased a hosue that is located in Texas. Is not a state that I ever figured I would live in. Mostly because I do not fancy the heat. But at least it is a dry heat in this area, and there is not too much humidity in the summer. Anyway, I am currently looking at prices for Reliant Energy in Texas, because I want to see if they will be a good company for me to get electricity from.

I am not sure how much it is going to cost for electricity in Texas, since I have never lived her before. It is a pretty strange situation that I find myself in. Read the rest of this entry »


I Like Having My Cheat Sheet

January 18th, 2014

Hay DayI found a game that I really enjoy playing. When I was younger, my family and I went on a tour of a working farm. I loved everything about it, and I still have fond memories about it. When I discovered the game Hay Day, it just brought back some of those memories, mainly because of the farm animals in it. I started playing it, but I found myself getting stumped on some of the levels. I did an online search for hay day hack with no survey to see if I could find a site that would give me access to some tips and tricks for some of the harder levels.

I was able to find a site that was perfect for me. I found a guide there that gives me details on every single level. There are things about the game that I didn’t even realize until I started reading this guide that has all of the tips and tricks of the game in it.


Feeling Safe with Zwave Home Automation

January 14th, 2014

I have a very nervous personality, and my anxieties have only seemed to grow as I have gotten older. When my husband and I recently bought our first house, there were a few things that were important to me. First, I wanted to be in a neighborhood, as I felt safer being in close proximity to others. Second, I wanted the house to have some type of home security system. Well, the property we fell in love with was in a neighborhood but there was no system set up that made me feel secure. We fixed all that with zwave.

My husband’s job involves a lot of entertaining. There are many nights when he doesn’t get home from wining and dining his clients until after midnight. He also has to go on several short trips a month. Read the rest of this entry »


I Have Never Felt This Healthy

January 11th, 2014

I have tried losing weight a few different ways. I tried the old fashioned way of eating less and being more active. I also bought my meals from a company that rationed the portions, and I did some fad diets too. I didn’t have a lot of weight to lose, but it was enough to be bothersome to me. Nothing worked though, at least not very well. I was looking for ways I hadn’t tried yet when I came across solpria. I had never taken supplements to help me with my weight loss because I just didn’t know that they even existed.

I read a great deal on Solpria before I bought it for the first time. I liked what I saw on the ad because it showed a person who had not only lost about the same amount of weight that I needed to lose, but she was also very toned.


I Love Seeing the New Me

January 9th, 2014

gnc Herbal Plus Garcinia Cambogia 500mg. / 90 Caps.When I decided to lose weight, I made a plan for myself. I put myself on a pretty strict diet, and I made an exercise chart too. I had it all organized, but the only problem was that it did not work. I was too tired for the exercise most days, and the food diet was bland and boring. That meant I ended up eating more at night because I was just too hungry to even sleep. I wasn’t sure what to do since I knew those were the two keys until I found out about zyloslim.

I had heard there were supplements that help people to lose weight quicker than usual, and that is the main reason why I started researching them. When I found some information on Zyloslim, I was impressed by the pictures I saw. One of the women actually looked a bit like me as far as body shapes go. At least, her before picture did. The picture she took months later after using this supplement was simply amazing.

Incredible Advances in Science and Technology Keep on Coming

August 1st, 2013

I really like learning about the latest advances in the sciences. I particularly like medical and modern living technology. I am amazed at some of the medical devices that are actually in use today. They boggle my mind with how advanced they are. People are using things to manage diseases that seem like they are not even possible to have yet. I suppose the average person does not even realize how amazing their smartphone is. Just a few short years ago we did not have such devices. Now I go and click here on my favorite science and technology website and read about even more amazing things that scientists are inventing.


Community Service for Her School

May 29th, 2013

My daughter goes to a great magnet school where they incorporate international studies with the rest of the regular courses that she takes. Instead of taking Spanish for example, she is taking Chinese. I am thrilled with our choice to send her to this school as it was just ranked in the top four percent of the country. She has to do fifteen hours of community service this year. She is working with slurry recycling where she can volunteer to separate cans and other items where they will be sent to processing plants for recycling into other items. I am very excited for her as she has taken a huge liking to helping the environment and saving it in any way she can.


Carbonite Backup Systems to Safely Back Up Your Work

December 29th, 2012

If you are someone that works as a writer or in any other area of digital media, you know how frustrating it can be when your system crashes. If you do not have the proper back up system in place, you can risk losing your saved work and files, which can in turn put you at risk of losing clients and accounts, especially if you work remotely. Carbonite is a trusted brand in data back up programs, and by using the carbonite offer code, you can purchase this incredible system at a discount. Aside from losing important work files, a computer crash can also result in the loss of your personal files as well, including photos, music, videos, and games.

While there are a lot of computer backup programs on the market today that promise amazing results, unfortunately a lot of the time they are only able to save a portion of the data. Consumers prefer Carbonite based on the fact that it contains multiple tools that truly allow you to get your data back if it has been lost or compromised due to a hard drive crash.


Saving Money on Your Phone Line Rental

November 30th, 2012

In today’s tight economy, most families are looking for ways to save money. Often, their attention turns to their cable or phone packages; these are two areas where it is often fairly easy to cut down on your monthly expenditures. If your phone line rental is costing you more than you think it should, you have a few options. First, take advantage of the Internet. With a few clicks of a button, you can compare and contrast different plans without much effort on your part. You can also look up customer reviews and determine the level of satisfaction that people have with a particular company. This can be invaluable information; sometimes it is worth it to pay slightly more in order to get better service.

Next, think about combining your phone and your broadband charges. Particularly if you are currently paying two different companies for these two services, you may be spending more than you should each month. Most companies want as much of your business as they can get. Therefore, they will offer you a discount if you sign up for multiple accounts with them. In addition to the savings that you will receive, it is a good idea to take this step because it makes your life simpler. You will only have to pay one bill each month, and you only have to contact one company if you have an issue with either of your services.

You don’t have to pay sky high rates for basic services each month; there are options. By doing a little research, and investing a bit of time into the process, you could save yourself quite a bit of money over the course of a year. Don’t be afraid to switch companies if you aren’t happy with your service, either. It is important to get the best deal possible.

Nossa! esse artigo é horroroso… não dá para concordar com os argumentos. Porque parte do um pressuposto “de que por trás de tudo isso há, na verdade, uma guerra entre dois sistemas econômicos de exploração de conteúdos e que, nessa disputa, os autores estão sendo ameaçados de desapropriação” E não é sobre isso que a idéia de copyleft tem a ver. Estamos falando de inovação, de remix, de experimentos, de piração.. Estamos produzindo para a colaboração.


News diet, news fatigue

Apontamentos tirados do texto Overload!, de Bree Nordenson, no Columbia Journalism Review, a registrar:

  • Existem hoje mais de 70 milhões de blogs e 150 milhões de sites.
  • 210 bilhões de emails são enviados todos os dias.
  • Em 2006, o mundo produziu 161 exabytes de dados digitais, o equivalente a 3 milhões de vezes mais as informações até hoje contidas em livros. Em 2010, este número deverá ser de 988 exabytes.
  • E isso não quer dizer que as pessoas estão melhor informadas.
  • Boa parte das notícias online encontram-se “não processadas” (como que “inacabadas”)
  • “The most valuable journalism is the kind that explains.”
