Educational

In today's generation sex has been thought in school. It's not telling younger ones to do it but as an awareness and an education for them. Not only kids, everyone has the right to now what is sex all about. This is not a topic to put you in shame or in trouble. But an awareness for you to know. There are myths about sex. Do you remember some when you were younger? Honestly, I wasn't really aware about this aspect when I was younger because it wasn't thought in our school and my parents will avoid talking about the topic. It is always for adult only and not for younger ones. I can understand that because it is a very serious matter and it really needs parental guidance. But most I have heard from others was when you have sex for the very first time the hymen breaks. It is very painful and will bleed. I don not know how true it is. It might be or it may not. Some will prove it that it is happens to them but some other will also say it never happen to them. It is really very important to know certain things when it comes to this matter especially our limitations towards this. Biblically speaking sex is only done by married couples and any act that is perform before marriage is a sin. So there are lots of aspect involving this matter. Know your limitations, know your right, know the risk involve before engaging into sex.

Nobody is perfect

Why do some people doesn't mind their own business? People that will always correct and tell you what to do. Feeling so perfect that in fact it's not. I really don't like those kind of people. When you commit a very small mistake, you will be corrected right away. It is like telling you, you are so stupid, why can't you do this and that. I guess some people are not happy if they don't see you suffer from something. I know some people who do that. People that tells you what to do. People that wants their will to be done over yours. It's hard to deal with those kind of people especially if you are living under the same roof. You tried so hard to avoid them so that you dont have conflicts anymore but sometimes they will make a way to see your mistakes and bite you again. I am just sick and tired of those people and the worst thing is you have to deal with them everyday. Have you been to a situation like this? How did you deal with it?

Kids Choice Award - Nick Kca

They may have only been up for one award on Saturday night (March 28) at the Kids' Choice Awards, but the night definitely belonged to the Jonas Brothers. A who's who of teen stars were on hand at the 22nd annual awards show, hosted by Dwayne Johnson.

The first award of the night, Favorite TV Show, was handed out by Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson and went to "iCarly." "We wouldn't be up here without you guys," the show's star, Miranda Cosgrove, told the super-excited crowd. Tons of celebs made appearances throughout the night, like Favorite Male Singer winner Jesse McCartney, Will Ferrell, Sandra Bullock and Hugh Jackman, all of whom got slimed, a time-honored KCA tradition.

Although she wasn't there to claim her Blimp, Selena Gomez won Favorite TV Actress for her work on "Wizards of Waverly Place." Keeping the girl power alive were the Pussycat Dolls, who didn't win any Blimps but did perform "When I Grow Up" and their version of the "Slumdog Millionaire" anthem "Jai Ho."

Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron, Corbin Bleu and Ashley Tisdale were there to accept the Favorite Movie award for "High School Musical 3: Senior Year." Hudgens also took home a Blimp for Favorite Movie Actress. "A quick shout-out to Lucas [Grabeel] and Monique [Coleman]. We love you guys," Efron said to his missing castmates while accepting the award. "Thank you all for embracing 'HSM.' We love you guys."

It was cute-boy overload as Efron presented the award for Favorite Music Group to the Jonas Brothers. "Thank you guys so much," Joe said, before Nick added, "It's been amazing. We've enjoyed the ride thoroughly." More swooning ensued when "Gossip Girl" heartthrob Chace Crawford announced the JoBros' performance. They rocked the crowd and made girls scream when they performed "S.O.S." and "Burnin' Up."

There was also love for "Twilight," which won for Favorite Book. "This is awesome," Taylor Lautner told the crowd. "Stephenie Meyer wanted to tell you guys 'thank you.' And I can tell you firsthand you guys are gonna love [the 'New Moon' movie]."

Leonardo DiCaprio won the most serious award of the night, taking home the Big Green Help Blimp for inspiring people to be more proactive in saving the environment. And although Miley Cyrus was up for a slew of awards, she only managed to win one for Favorite Female Singer. While hugging her Blimp and fighting back tears, she said, "I really thought I was going to lose."

The night came to an end with Johnson fulfilling his assigned task of finding the right key to make the volcanic slime pyramid explode. What was that key? The Jonas Brothers singing "Lovebug." Other big winners of the night included "American Idol" for Favorite Reality Show, Will Smith for Favorite Movie Actor and past KCA host Jack Black for Favorite Voice in an Animated Movie.

Rainy day

The rain has finally stopped. It was raining the rest of the day and makes me want to just stay in bed. I also had a terrible headache a while ago so I took a nap and I feel a little better now. Been lazy lately and I don't know why. I just want to go lay down and do nothing. Sounds like a symptom of pregnancy right,ohhh I really hope but we will see. I thank all who had visited my blog lately, I promise I'll visit you as soon as I can.

Seaweed Wrap

I love to treat myself by way of going shopping and going to SPA center. It gives me so much joy seeing myself well treated and pampered. The thing I love when I go to SPA is the body scrubs and Thai massage. These are the kind offer I get when I was still in the Philippines when I go to Spa. Now that I am here in the States I started looking for a Spa but what I found is a product of Body Swap, the top seller in Spa's. They offer Spa products & wraps for home wrap treatment such as seaweed wrap, clays and herbal extracts. They are amazing when it comes to the fast or quick results and with repeated use the results become lasting. You can expect your skin to firm up and also you will see a reduction in cellulite patches. This is great. We will surely try seaweed wrap soon.

Good morning

it's a great day today. I feel better but still thinking of the things I am going to do today. I have been lazy lately and all I wan to do is sit and watch tv and surf the internet. I haven fascinated with coins lately. Probably will buy a bag of coins today..hehehe..Good morning everyone

Football Ground Challenge

Exhausted from travelling 2,500 miles in just 89 hours while visiting 93 football grounds across the country, four football crazy friends were enjoying a well-earned rest today having raised a mammoth £3,500 for charity. Their exhilarating trip saw them visit all the English Premier League and Football League grounds, as well as an extra unplanned trip to Wembley, in a record four days.

The challenge kicked off on Thursday at 6am, when Steve Thorpe, Sam Downing, Jack Thorpe and Mark Downing made their way to their first stop at Colchester United in an attempt to visit 92 grounds in 92 hours.

Their journey took them to some of football's most famous stadiums, including Anfield, home of Liverpool, and Manchester United's Old Trafford.
Along the way, the team also met football legend Sir Geoff Hurst, who is best remembered for his years with West Ham and as the only player to have scored a hat-trick in a World Cup final. The trip finished at 11.30pm on Sunday when the group arrived at Posh's ground in London Road ground.

They also collected football memorabilia including signed footballs, a football shirt from Chelsea and an Arsenal pendant, which they plan to auction off to boost the funds raised for the Free Kicks Foundation.

The Peterborough-based charity takes children who have an illness, disability, or who are deserving in another way, on a day out involving their favourite football team.

Steve Thorpe said: "The trip was absolutely brilliant but extremely exhausting. We only got about six hours sleep over four days.

"We were delighted to finish well under time in just 89 and a half hours, and even got to go to Wembley, which was a real treat. But what made the trip was knowing that we raised more than £3,500 – and there is still money coming in.

"The highlight of the trip was definitely meeting Sir Geoff Hurst at Chester City, he just happened to be there so we got our pictures taken with him and told him all about the trip.

"We also got to go inside a few of the grounds, including Hull and Middlesbrough, and take pictures, which was good.

"When we got to Bristol Rovers on Saturday we watched the Posh game and had our pictures taken on the pitch with some of the players.

"Throughout the trip we also collected signed balls and other football memorabilia, which we will be auctioning off at a later date to raise more money.

"This money means we can provide days out for at least 10 children in Peterborough and across the country.

"I don't think we will ever do it again, it was very tiring."

2009 NFL schedules

NFL owners are formulating a strategy to begin negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement with the players' union, but commissioner Roger Goodell said Monday he expects a new deal will be in place before next March, when the salary cap is set to expire.

"I don't believe that will be the case," Goodell said when asked about the possibilities in an uncapped season in 2010. Owners opted out of the current CBA last year, which will trigger the end of the salary cap if no new deal is reached before next March.

Owners' priorities in the negotiations will include having the costs for building and operating stadiums recognized by the players and instituting a salary cap for rookies, Goodell said in a news conference at the NFL's annual meeting in Dana Point, Calif.

There is no timetable yet for when negotiations on a new CBA will begin. Goodell met with new NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith Friday for the first time.

The economy is hurting the league's revenue streams, and Goodell said the ramifications will have an effect on the negotiations. Money from sponsorships and licensing is down, and the league is concerned about the possibility for reduced ticket sales in 2009. Read more,,

Get away in Kissimme Florida

Having vacation is fun because you don't have to do anything but to enjoy. My husband and I loves to do that. Having fun is priceless. Being in a place that has full of things to do is awesome. Having a vacation is a treat for ourselves. It just requires enjoyment. I like the feeling when I'm on vacation because I don't have to think of anything but to enjoy. No pressure at work, no boss to attend to and everything is all about myself. Now, planning a vacation is easy. With the use of the internet, you will have an easier access to websites to look for a place to spend your vacation. One of the tourist spot today is Kissimmee. I have heard about this place in Florida before but I didn't think that there's something to it. Like they said, there's no other vacation destination quite like Kissimmee. A charming oasis in the middle of everything that's Central Florida and just minutes south of Orlando, this is a place that puts all different kinds of fun within reach. It's a place unlike any other, made just for you. Amazing! This comment alone makes it stand out among others. There are lots of things to do in Kissimme such as going to the World Class Theme Park, Dining, Outdoor Recreation, Shopping, Spa, Golf, Art and Culture, Festivals and Events, Heritage Trail, Family fun and many more. Given the chance to spend my vacation in Kissimme, I'd like to do shopping, Spa, outdoor recreation and heritage trail. Wow! I already see myself enjoying.

David Letterman and Regina Lasko tie the knot

David Letterman is finally committed once again. Yes he got married once again at age of 61. Late-night TV comic David Letterman has quietly married his longtime girlfriend, telling audience members of his show on Monday that he almost missed the ceremony because his truck was stuck in mud.

Letterman, 61, and Regina Lasko tied the knot during a courthouse ceremony near their Montana ranch last Thursday. The couple, who have been dating since 1986, were accompanied by their 5-year-old son, Harry.I had avoided getting married pretty good for, like, 23 years, and I -- honestly, whether this happened or not -- I secretly felt that men who were married admired me ... like I was the last of the real gunslingers," Letterman said, according to a "Late Show" transcript provided by a spokesman.

But the afternoon ceremony at the Teton County Courthouse in Choteau (pop. 1,700) was delayed by an hour because the family's pickup truck was stuck in mud two miles from their house. Letterman was forced to walk back in a howling gale to get the car.

"So then we get in the car and Harry says, 'Are we still going into town?' and I said, 'Yes, we are,' and he gets very upset because Mom had told him if I wasn't back in an hour, the deal was off."

Letterman's spokesman declined to reveal any details about the ceremony, or to give Lasko's age. Letterman, who was married once before, is intensely private, and is rarely photographed with his family.

The news of his nuptials was first broken by celebrity tabloid US Weekly.

Gowns Everywhere

As shown in the picture it is one of the different kinds of gowns in the world of fashion. If you are watching fashion shows, reading magazines or in the internet you will see all kinds of gown. Sometimes I get to ask myself why there are so many gowns? In different kinds, different style, different color, fashion, trend, designer and a lot more. In my opinion, they do this to classify it based on what occasion is all about. Just like when you join a prom, you don't want to wear a wedding gown for this occasion but instead a prom gowns or prom dresses or you are lost. You simply match your dress to the occasion to be more appropriate. The above mentioned gown is just one of the huge selection of gowns. There is wedding gown if your getting married. There is cocktail dresses when you go to a cocktail party. And if you are a celebrity you simply wear a celebrity gown. There are hundreds of gown to choose for your party need or in any type of occasion. You just have to look and find the right gown that suites you best and appropriate for the occasion.

Battlestar bids farewell

Being a huge fan of Sci Fi channel, Battlestar Galactica is one of my favorite show but it bid goodbye to everyone. I will miss watching it and hopefully Sci Fi channel will produce this kind of series again.

One of the best science-fiction series ever put on television closes out Friday, March 20, as Battlestar Galactica ends its four-season run with a two-hour finale. In a galaxy somewhere south of it, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, an animated series on the Cartoon Network, ends its first season on a ratings roll.

So the question is: Are we ever going to see something in the middle of these two series? BSG (as its fans call it) was able to capture viewers who didn’t identify themselves as lovers of sci-fi. And the George Lucas project Star Wars: The Clone Wars has drawn both kids and adults. But with one idle and the other departing for good there’s no science fiction on broadcast television right now worth watching. A glimmer of hope surrounded Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, but the series is larded with conceptual failure and bad acting. Its counterpart on Fox’s schedule, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, was once viewed as can’t-miss material but has since faded badly in the ratings. Either the two shows will be the combined beneficiary of Fox’s largesse or they’ll go down the drain together.

There are plenty of other series amalgamated into the sci-fi genre even though — aside from the long-running Doctor Who — most are not what mainstream viewers would call “science fiction” and none is making much noise in the ratings.

More importantly, none of them are making a critical impact like Battlestar Galactica, a superb drama that bears almost no resemblance to the cheesy late ’70s series of the same name. Ronald D. Moore “reimagined” the series in 2004 for the Sci-Fi channel and slowly the word spread to the mainstream that something special was happening on this genre show.

Indeed it was.

The series managed to be a thrilling, dense and evocative home for stories about existentialism, race, religion, war, friendship, the search for identity, family, politics, tribalism and, sure enough, science fiction. The writing, acting and visuals on BSG elevated it to the stratosphere of creative television — a series worthy of top 10 lists that encompassed network, ad-supported and pay cable. (The good news for people who haven’t seen one frame of it is now you can start renting or buying the DVDs and working toward the finale that has so many die-hards anticipating tonight’s end game.) An executive at another ad-supported cable channel once wisely said if BSG had another million dollars to spend on each episode it wouldn’t be any good. What he meant was that tight budgets forced the writers to shy away from stereotypical space battles and bluster, focusing more closely on the storytelling. That’s why BSG managed to cross over and appeal to mainstream TV audiences. The series deftly balanced the kind of mythology that fuels sci-fi enthusiasts with dramatic arcs that enthralled fans of more terrestrial fare. As soon as viewers found out that the bulk of the stories surrounded a phalanx of nuanced characters, they bought in.

Because BSG elevated science fiction to high art you’d think TV executives would be searching for something similar to it. Despite the acclaim BSG garnered, there’s a fear of trying to do something too dark or moody, traits that drew critics to the series in the first place. And while cops, doctors and lawyers are dominating the current pilot process, some networks are giving sci-fi a longer look. ABC is remaking V about an alien invasion (based on a miniseries from the ’80s) and Flash Forward, based on a science-fiction book by Robert J. Sawyer — but written for the small screen by Brannon Braga (the latter-era Star Trek series) and David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, the story for The Dark Knight). Fox is making Human Target, based on the DC Comics character who assumes the identity of those he’s trying to protect. And NBC is developing Day One, a futuristic series that picks up after a global disaster.

But on the small screen, sci-fi breakthroughs are rare. It could be that V or Flash Forward or Human Target ignore special effects and fantastical gibberish and really focus on the narrative, the character development, the writing, acting, directing and the sustaining of an original vision from season to season. That’s how you achieve greatness. But even most non-genre series come to realize brilliance is a fantasy they can’t attain. Which makes Battlestar Galactica all the more stellar in comparison.

Michael Jackson in Concert

I am certified Michael Jackson fan. I like his music and the way he groove on his concert. It's been a while that I haven't heard about him and I was glad to know that he his having a concert again. Although I won't be there to witness his concert, I'm still glad to know that his back on track. Maybe I'll get the chance to meet my idol in person and that would be an amazing day. Be there and get your Tickets to Michael Jackson now for this one of a kind event. Don't miss one of a lifetime event and witness as the king of pop perform once again.

Not well

We were quite busy today. We cleaned the front yard and mowed. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling well today since I woke up this morning. I tried to work outside hoping to feel better but it even got worst. Got a little fever, got cold and had a headache. But right now, I am feeling a little better and hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow.

The Most Memorable Day of my life

My wedding is the most memorable day of my life. Being married to a man that has everything that a girl have ever wanted, is priceless and God's gift. I couldn't ask for more because God has already given me everything. We've been married for 5 now and we are very happy. We enjoy each others company and our love just grow and becoming stronger everyday. Looking back to our special day, it's the wedding that I have ever wanted. It is very simple. Most of our guest is our family and close friends. Approximately we only have less 30 guest that time. We didn't really have wedding favors that time. All we did was we just send a thank you card to our guest who came. The momentum of our wedding was when we say I do to each and was declared husband and wife in front of our witnesses and in front of God. To me, that was precious and everlasting.

Check out their huge selection of prom dresses, evening dresses, sexy dresses, cocktail dresses and many more that are 75% off. Hurry! before they're gone.

Promoting your blog

If you are a blogger, you probably know what I am talking about. I am about to talk about how to promote your blog. This is what most bloggers do. So here we go:

This is in no way a science or guarantee; it's simply a few suggestions with which many bloggers have found success.

Set your blog to Send Pings. When this setting is activated, your blog will be included in various "recently updated" lists on the web as well as other blog-related services.

Activate Your Navbar. Do this and you might start to see the effects right away! One of the features on the Blogger Navbar is a button called NextBlog - click it to visit the next Navbar-enabled blog.

Install Email This Post. If you use Email This Post on your blog, people will be able to forward your posts to friends. This may not have an immediate impact on your site stats but it enables others to publicize your blog for you.

Turn on Post Pages. By publishing every post as its very own web page with Post Pages, you ensure that your entries are way more link-able and more attractive to search engines.

Turn on your site feed. When people subscribe to your site feed in their newsreaders, they're very likely going to read your post.

Add your blog to Blogger's listings. When you add your blog to our listings it shows up in Nextblog, Recently Updated, and other places. It's like opting-in to traffic.

Write quality content and do it well. If your "style" is bad writing, worse grammar, no punctuation, and an ugly design, that might be okay for a niche crowd. But the idea here is to achieve mass appeal, so fix yourself up a bit.

Publish regular updates. Simple: the more you blog, the more traffic you'll get.

Think of your audience. A good way to build an audience is to speak to one in particular. When you keep your audience in mind, your writing gains focus. Focus goes a long way toward repeat visitors.

Keep search engines in mind. There are a few things you can do to make your blog more search engine friendly. Use post titles and post page archiving. This will automatically give each of your post pages an intelligent name based on the title of your post. Also, try to be descriptive when you blog. A well crafted post about something very specific can end up very near the top results of a search.

Keep your posts and paragraphs short. Strive for succinct posts that pump pertinent new information into the blogosphere and move on. Keep it short and sweet so visitors can pop in, read up, and click on.

Put your blog URL in your email signature. Think of how many forwarded emails you've seen in your day, and just imagine the possibilities.

Sumbit your address to blog search sites and directories. People look for blog content at Technorati every day, are you on their list? You should be. Submit your blog's url to Technorati, Daypop, Blogdex, Popdex, and any other site of that ilk you come across.

Link to other blogs. Links are the currency of the blogosphere and it takes money to make money so start linking.

Install a blogroll. It's a very simple yet effective social networking scheme and it has the same result as a simple link if not stronger: traffic! So if you don't have one yet, sign up for a blogroll and get that link-list going.

Be an active commenter. This is in the same vein as linking. Most comment systems also provide a way for you to leave a link back to your blog which begs a visit at the very least. So if you feel inspired, leave a comment or two in your blog travels. It behooves you.

Enable Following on your blog. Following a is a great way to keep your friends updated on the latest activity on your blog. New blogs will have this blog feature enabled by default, but for older blogs you will have to enable it from the Layout | Page Elements tab.

Features and Products of Google


I know everyone knows about Google and it is very popular but for a quick recap, here are the features of Google as they were just starting in the World Wide Web.

GOOGLE Products:

AdWords

The origin of google.com Google came out with AdWords in 2000 to provide advertising facility to small businesses. It is a keyword based self-service ad program which can be activated with online by help of a credit card within a few minutes. In February 2002 Google included cost-per-click (CPC) model which made search advertising economical for both small and large businesses. Google AdWords works very well as the ads reach only the people who are using keywords which relate well to that particular ad. This approach has made AdWords extremely popular. After announcing that it's going to launch Gmail soon, Google filed for an IPO (initial public offer) with SEC on April 29, 2004. The Google IPO was offered to public on August 19 through Dutch auction process. In October first quarterly results of Google were announced showing revenues to the tune of $800 million.

Google Toolbar

The origin of google.com Google introduced the Google Toolbar in 2000 making it possible for surfers to use Google search without visiting the Google webpage. One can also search by right clicking on text within a web document. With help of Google Toolbar keywords can be highlighted in search results. Since its launch the Google Toolbar has been very popular and downloaded by many millions. It also blocks pop-ups and translates webpage into English.

Gmail

The origin of google.com On April 1, 2004 many thought that the announcement by Google to come out with a mail service providing 1 GB storage space was a joke. But soon Gmail was launched and left "Yahoo!" and "hotmail" far behind. It used AdSense to provide relevant ads next to mail messages. It provides a search facility to help you look up for a particular message. You can also chat without downloading any software from the mail page with people you already mail. Currently Gmail offers more than 6500 Mb of storage space.

All you have to do is type in you house address, press search and you will be able to see the location. Location of schools, hotels and restaurants can be had from this site along with directions as how to reach the place.

Google Talk

Google PageRank

Google uses both hardware and software solutions to make its search engine faster. The hardware part is achieved by networking together of thousands of low cost PC together so as to give huge computing power. On the software side, Google uses PageRank to rank web pages. It is a system of ranking web pages and was developed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were at Stanford. When a web page, say A, gives a link to another page, say B, it is interpreted as a vote by page A for page B. Along with taking into consideration of the number of votes received by a web page the page that casts the vote is also taken into consideration. It means that some when some important site provides link to another page it is sure to improve its ranking.

No credit fee to reject paid ads

Latest News from Entrecard:

Guys n gals of Entrecard, there has been much controversy over the last few days regarding some proposed changes. Despite what has happened, I am very proud of each and every one of you. For you all to strongly share your feelings in some way, whether via blog posts, forum posts, comments here or via twitter, it humbles me that so many of you care. I appreciate all of your feedback.

As a direct result, and with the intention of moving forward as a team with the respect of our members, we wish to directly address your biggest concern with the new changes: having to pay a fee to reject paid ads.

We’ve listened to you loud and clear about the massive ad platform we’re launching, and over and over one piece of feedback kept popping up: “I don’t want a credit fee to reject ads!”

We were initially planning on charging a small fee to decline paid ads running through the network. The intent of this was to make sure that most ads run, while allowing you to reject ones you really don’t like.

But now it has become quite clear that as a community, you don’t agree with having to pay a fee, even if it’s just in the form of our virtual credits, to decline ads.

So, we have officially removed the planned credit-fee to reject. Rejecting any paid ad you wish will now be completely free when our new platform launches. As we move forward though, please understand that running these paid ads on your blog not only supports Entrecard, but also supports the entire virtual economy of Entrecard by providing the money needed to convert credits into dollars via our credit exchange that we are simultaneously rolling out.

I hope this has addressed all of your biggest concerns with the platform. I’d like to assure each and every member that we are here to work with you, not against you, and we listen at all times across all mediums.

Do you know this?

Computer-virus infections don't cause your machine to crash anymore.

Nowadays, the criminals behind the infections usually want your computer operating in top form so you don't know something's wrong. That way, they can log your keystrokes and steal any passwords or credit-card numbers you enter at Web sites, or they can link your infected computer with others to send out spam.

Here are some signs your computer is infected, tapped to serve as part of "botnet" armies run by criminals:

• You experience new, prolonged slowdowns. This can be a sign that a malicious program is running in the background.

• You continually get pop-up ads that you can't make go away. This is a sure sign you have "adware," and possibly more, on your machine.

• You're being directed to sites you didn't intend to visit, or your search results are coming back funky. This is another sign that hackers have gotten to your machine.

So what do you do?

• Having anti-virus software here is hugely helpful. For one, it can identify known malicious programs and disable them. If the virus that has infected your machine isn't detected, many anti-virus vendors offer a service in which they can remotely take over your computer and delete the malware for a fee.

• Some anti-virus vendors also offer free, online virus-scanning services.

• You may have to reinstall your operating system if your computer is still experiencing problems. It's a good idea even if you believe you've cleaned up the mess because malware can still be hidden on your machine. You will need to back up your files before you do this.

How do I know what information has been taken?

• It's very hard to tell what's been taken. Not every infection steals your data. Some just serve unwanted ads. Others poison your search result or steer you to Web sites you don't want to see. Others log your every keystroke. The anti-virus vendors have extensive databases about what the known infections do and don't do. Comparing the results from your virus scans to those entries will give you a good idea about what criminals may have snatched up.

Rainy Monday

It's been raining for how many days and I don't when it last. We can't do much of work outside because of the rain. Hopefully in the next few days, the sun will shine again. My day is just fine, I already started my laundry, cleaned our room last night and shortly will be cleaning our living room. I am starting to get bored again as usual. I am also in the process of buying my new phone because hubby has an extra sim, so all we need is a new phone, an at&t phone. We'll that's it for now guys and have a wonderful day ahead.

Bring your co-workers out for the Corporate Challenge for a fee of $35. Each registration fee will have an additional $3.75 charge for the online registration. Remember, only online registration is available for this race. No paper applications are available.

Beach to Beacon is a big draw for elite runners from all over with its large prize purse.

The current mens course record is 27:28, set by Gilbert Okari of Kenya in 2003. The womens course record is 31:26, set by Alventina Ivanova of Kenya in 2006. The current Maine course record was set in 2005 by Eric Giddings of South Portland.

New website unveiled

Glenn Beck unveiled his new website, The 912 Project, on his show earlier tonight. The website is dedicated to helping people find others who share our principles and values. Read about it below and see the 9 Principles and 12 values at the core of this movement. We also have the video from Beck’s You Are Not Alone Show below.

Unite or Die
The 912 Project

It seems so simplistic to outline the principles and values that we, as Americans, live by. Yet, in the world as it has become recently, it has seemed to become necessary to actually take a look at what our core beliefs are.

I think that over the years, we have gotten fat, lazy and way too comfortable. I think that Americans have forgotten what its like to have to be uncomfortable or to have to struggle. We’ve forgotten that the entire world doesn’t live the way we live. We think we are sacrificing if we decide to stay at the Holiday Inn instead of the Hilton. When I read what people write about life during the Great Depression, I realize we don’t know what hardship is. When I read what people write about life during World War II, I realize we don’t know what its like for our nation to be at war. We aren’t making sacrifices, just the few who have gone to war have sacrificed for us. The rest of us have gone on with life as usual and have prospered.

We have so much prosperity that we have come to believe that is the norm. We have forgotten how to put others before ourselves. We have forgotten how to put our country before ourselves. We are selfish and petty and spoiled.

With the events of the past year, I think many of us have stepped back for a minute and looked at what has been happening around us. It is frightening to look at. Taking our freedom and prosperity for granted has put us on the verge of losing it all. We need to step back and go back to our core values.

Glenn Beck held a forum earlier tonight that we live blogged here. He thesis is that we need to remember we are not alone, we are not surrounded, in fact … We Surround Them. He laid out his list of nine principles and twelve values that are the core of our belief system. I’ve listed them below. They seem so commonsensical that it seems odd to have to list them. But apparently we do need to.

During his special he introduced his new website, The 912 Project. He describes it as a place for like-minded people to come together for reassurance that they are not alone. As Beck pointed out in his show, we have to support each other, we need to Unite, or Die.

The 12 Values:

  • Honesty
  • Reverence
  • Hope
  • Thrift
  • Humility
  • Charity
  • Sincerity
  • Moderation
  • Hard Work
  • Courage
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Gratitude

The Nine Principles

  • 1. America is good.
  • 2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
  • 3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
  • 4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
  • 5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
  • 6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
  • 7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
  • 8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
  • 9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

Wish upon a hero - granting wishes to strangers

Dave Girgenti is a marketing manager from New Jersey, and many would say that he sees the world through rose-colored glasses. "I think anyone would help anyone if they knew who to help and how to help them," he said.

Girgenti has found thousands of people whose generosity continues to prove him right.

A year-and-a-half ago, Girgenti launched WishUponAHero.com, what he calls a social "helping" site where anyone can post wishes, which in turn are answered by "heroes," who offer to help make those wishes come true.

"If you want to become a hero it's as easy as clicking on someone's wish that you are emotionally connected with," Girgenti said. "You never know what your super power is, meaning you never know what you can grant because it's as simple as advice or a birthday card. Anyone can be a hero."

Wish Upon a Hero was born out of Girgenti's desire to help people after tragedies like September 11th and Hurricane Katrina.

Amazing Creature perform


Have you ever seen a dolphin perform? If not, you must watch this video and I am sure you will not only love it but you will be amazed like I was. They are a talented and special mammal. They have the ability to perform a certain task and are very well trained. As I was watching the video I could not help myself from admiring them as they were performing . They are such beautiful creatures and they can capture your attention as they showcase their talents. You can no longer see them anywhere in today's oceans like an ordinary fish because they are an endangered species but if you would like to see them for real, you can visit sea world in Florida. See them as they artfully create and play with underwater bubble rings and hear what Sea World’s trainers, educators and guests have to say about this fun and fascinating behavior. Witness as they create Dolphin Bubbles underwater. Personally, after seeing this video I can't wait to see them. We will be in Florida a few months from now and we plan to visit Sea world. This will be a great experience to witness a very talented creature, and Not just witness them but will also given a chance to interact with them. When I say interact, you can touch them and the most exciting part is you can swim with them. That is awesome. See for yourself and experience the adventure of a life time.

Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera, aka Shorty, makes Forbes Billionaires List


Drugs are big money.

Case-in-point: the fat wallet of “El Chapo.” Wait, who?

Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera made the Forbes Billionaires List this week.

He's the 701th member of the list with an estimated net worth of $1 billion.

Guzman Loera is the head of the Sinaloa drug cartel. He escaped from Mexican prison in 2001, CNN reports.

The Attorney General of Mexico was not pleased:

"I will never accept that a criminal could be recognized as someone distinguished, even if it is by a magazine like Forbes," Medina Mora said at a drug traffic summit Thursday in Vienna, Austria, CNN reports.

Forbes is "comparing the deplorable activity of a criminal wanted in Mexico and abroad with that of honest businessmen," he said.

Nor is the Mexican president:

"It is very sad the intensification of a campaign, which seems to me, has been launched against Mexico," President Felipe Calderon said.

Women's basketball: Kansas 61, Nebraska 56

OKLAHOMA CITY – Trailing by 11 points early in the second half, Kansas' Danielle McCray battled for a loose ball in the paint, found the handle, and muscled up a shot in traffic for a basket.

It was the start of something big for the Jayhawks.

McCray went on to score 17 of her 22 points in the second half, Sade Morris added a career-high 24 in her return to her home state, and Kansas charged back to beat Nebraska 61-56 in the Big 12 tournament Thursday.

"The first part of the game, both teams were a bit antsy," McCray said. "Nothing was coming easy for me, but (that shot) gave me some confidence that I could actually make a shot. I think the team saw how emotional I was after that play and fed off of it."

McCray sank the ensuing free throw for a three-point play to cut Nebraska's lead to 39-31, and the eighth-seeded Jayhawks (18-12) kept charging back to earn a spot opposite top-seeded Oklahoma in Friday's quarterfinals.

McCray and Morris, a Norman native, scored 29 of the Jayhawks' 33 second half points. The duo also combined for 14 rebounds and 36 of the team's 50 shots in the contest.

"When the shots aren't falling, that's what great players do. They go get an offensive rebound and make something happen," Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson said. "We call them Batman and Robin. (Texas A&M coach) Gary Blair calls them Pippen and Jordan. They are great together and when (Morris) stays aggressive, it makes them even better."

McCray's 3-pointer in transition tied the game at 48 with 8:15 to play. She hit another 3 from the top of the key to give Kansas a 57-55 lead with 41/2 minutes left, and the Jayhawks didn't allow another basket the rest of the way.

Morris took a steal the length of the court for a layup to push the lead to 59-56 lead, and her assist on a basket in the closing seconds secured the victory. Morris finished 12-for-19 and added seven rebounds.

"We knew coming here that we could play our way into the national tournament," Morris said. "I think both teams knew coming in that it was in or out for both of us.

"The defense we played in the second half was the difference."

Cory Montgomery had 20 points and nine rebounds to lead Nebraska (15-15), and Yvonne Turner scored 13. The Cornhuskers had won five of seven games after starting 1-8 in Big 12 play.

"I thought Kansas played really well offensively," Nebraska coach Connie Yori said. "I'm not sure what more we could do on our defensive end.

"They've got two big guards in McCray and Morris, who create lots of matchup problems for us."

Kansas has won five of its last six games, including a 69-45 win over No. 5 Baylor on March 4.

"Our No. 1 goal coming into the season was to make it to the NCAA tournament," McCray said. "I think we've done that."

Tapout founder Charles 'Mask' Lewis dies in Ferrari crash

Charles Lewis Jr., a.k.a "Mask," founder of the Tapout brand of mixed martial arts apparel label, has died in a Newport Beach car accident, reports our L.A. Now compatriot Ari B. Bloomekatz.

Although Newport Police would not release the name of the car crash victim pending notification of next of kin, press representatives of the San Bernardino County-based company confirmed Lewis had passed away on Monday evening, with the following statement:

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we must regretfully confirm the passing of our beloved friend, brother and co-founder Charles 'Mask' Lewis following a car accident that occurred last night. We are currently in the process of setting up a memorial service in his honor and will release more details as they become available.

Many thanks to all for the outpouring of blessings and well-wishing during this incredibly difficult time.

charles lewis jr mask tapout charles lewis charles lewis junior charles lewis tapout I first met the San Bernardino native and his Tapout brethren -- who go by the names SkySkrape (real name unknown) and Punkass (a.k.a. Earl Caldwell) at an MMA expo in Long Beach last August as part of my Image section cover story about the boom in MMA apparel.

I spent several hours with him after that, each time walking away impressed how much he seemed to be genuinely grateful for each fan, clasping their hands in his, mugging for photos, hoisting toddlers on his broad shoulders for snapshots.

He seemed to be afraid of disappointing them. If initial reports are correct -- that he was racing his Ferrari against a Porsche before he died Wednesday about 1 a.m. -- his passing will have done just that, shuffling off this mortal coil as flamboyantly as he strode through it.

He was always quick with an analogy. I remember something he said when I asked about the future potential of MMA brands: “If this is the Yellow Brick Road and Oz is in the distance, we’re still trying to go up the path to find the Tin Man, Scarecrow and the Lion."

But even in my brief encounter with him, I could see something deeper and more meaningful behind the face paint and floppy camo hat. At one point before I left the Tapout compound in Grand Terrace last August, Lewis sat across from me in the conference room. After a question about the spiritual undertones of the sport -- the good vs. evil, the abundance of crosses and crusader imagery -- he leaned forward, flashed a wide Chesire Cat smile, and whispered almost conspiratorially. "We all want to feel like we're David taking on Goliath." For a brief instant, I had met the man behind the Mask.

It's a shame that so many MMA fans will mourn the passing of the outsized gentle giant with the drill-sergeant demeanor and and so few will have had the rare privilege to see the man beneath it.
