I am on my 16th week in my pregnancy. It is getting closer and closer for us to know the gender of our little one. As I have read on the book I am reading, on this stage the baby starts moving now but could barely feel his/her kick or movements. I am excited though but I don't really know what's the feeling of the baby kicking...Hehehehehe..I am sorry this is my first pregnancy and everything is new to me. It is very exciting but at the same time it is also scary though. I don't that must be the normal feeling when you're pregnant. But we can't wait to see our little one on the day that I will deliver him/her.

This list is useful for 20-somethings, too. Now when the senior person in the office uses one of these terms, you'll know what he's talking about.
Popular in the mid-90s, the term "intranet" referred to a private network running the Internet Protocol and other Internet standards such as the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). It was also used to describe an internal Web site that was hosted behind a firewall and was accessible only to employees. Today, every private network runs IP. So you can just use the term virtual private network or VPN to describe a private IP-based network.
An "extranet" referred to private network connections based on Internet standards such as IP and HTTP that extended outside an organization, such as between business partners. Extranets often replaced point-to-point electronic data interchange (EDI) connections that used standards such as X12. Today, companies provide suppliers, resellers and other members of their supply chain with access to their VPNs.
3. Web Surfing
When is the last time you heard someone talk about surfing the Web? You know the term is out of date when your kids don't know what it means. To teens and tweens, the Internet and the World Wide Web are one and the same thing. So it's better to use the term "browsing" the Web if you want to be understood.
4. Push Technology
The debate over the merits of "push" versus "pull" technology came to a head in 1996 with the release of the PointCast Network, a Web service that sent a steady stream of news to subscribers. However, PointCast and other push technology services required too much network bandwidth. Eventually, push technology evolved into RSS feeds, which remain the preferred method for publishing information to subscribers of the Internet. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.
5. Application Service Provider (ASP)
During this decade, the term "Application Service Provider" evolved into "Software-as-a-Service." Both terms refer to a vendor hosting a software application and providing access to it over the Web. Customers buy the software on a subscription basis, rather than having to own and operate it themselves. ASP was a hot term prior to the dot-com bust. Then it was replaced by "SaaS." Now it's cool to talk about "cloud computing."
6. Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)
Coined by former Apple CEO John Sculley back in 1992 when he unveiled the Apple Newton, the term "personal digital assistant" referred to a handheld computer. PDA was still in use in 1996, when the Palm Pilot was the hottest handheld in corporate America. Today, the preferred generic term for a handheld like a Blackberry or an iPhone is a "smartphone".
7. Internet Telephony
You need to purge the term "Internet telephony" from your vocabulary and switch to VoIP, for Voice over IP. Even the term VoIP is getting old-fashioned because pretty soon all telephone calls will be routed over the Internet rather than the Public Switched Telephone Network. It's probably time to stop referring to the PSTN, too, because it is headed for the history books as all voice, data and video traffic is carried on the Internet.
A blog is a shortened version of "Weblog," a term that emerged in the late 1990s to describe commentary that an individual publishes online. It spawned many words still in use such as "blogger" and "blogosphere." Nowadays, few people have time to blog so they are "microblogging," which is another word that's heading out the door as people turn Twitter into a generic term for blasting out 140-character observations or opinions.
9. Thin Client
You have to give Larry Ellison credit for seeing many of the flaws in the client/server computing architecture and for popularizing the term "thin client" to refer to Oracle's alternative terminal-like approach. In 1993, Ellison was touting thin clients as a way for large organizations to improve network security and manageability. Although thin clients never replaced PCs, the concept is similar to "virtual desktops" that are gaining popularity today as a way of supporting mobile workers.
In 1984, the U.S. government forced AT&T to split up into seven Regional Bell Operating Companies [RBOCs] also known as Baby Bells. Customers bought local service from RBOCs and long-distance service from carriers such as AT&T. Telecom industry mergers over the last 15 years have formed integrated local- and long-distance carriers such as AT&T, Verizon and Qwest. This makes not only the term RBOC obsolete, but also the terms ILEC for Incumbent Local Exchange Carrier [i.e., GTE] and CLEC for Competitive Local Exchange Carrier [i.e., MFS].
11. Long-Distance Call
Thanks to flat-rate calling plans available from carriers for at least five years, nobody needs to distinguish between local and long-distance calls anymore. Similarly, you don't need to distinguish between terrestrial and wireless calls because so many people use only wireless services. Like pay phones, long-distance calls -- and their premium prices -- are relics of a past without national and unlimited calling plans.
12. World Wide Web
Nobody talks about the "World Wide Web" anymore, or the "Information Superhighway," for that matter. It's just the Internet. It's a distinction that Steve Czaban, the popular Fox Sports Radio talk show host, likes to mock when he refers to the "Worldwide Interweb." Nothing dates you more than pulling out one of those old-fashioned ways of referring to the Internet such as "infobahn" or "electronic highway."

What could be more insolent than the Bernie Madoff fraud? How about a bunch of books that promise the inside scoop on the con artist's scam but fail to deliver the goods? Audacious as it seems, that's the proposition the publishing industry and a bunch of itchy-trigger-finger writers would offer us, with no fewer than six new titles about the Madoff fraud either in bookstores or destined for the shelves in the coming weeks. There is "Betrayal: The Life and Times of Bernie Madoff," "Too Good To Be True: The Rise and Fall of Bernie Madoff," "Madoff With the Money," "Madoff: Corruption, Deceit and the Making of the World's Most Notorious Ponzi Scheme" "Catastrophe: The Story of Bernard L. Madoff, The Man Who Swindled the World." And, of course, "Madoff's Other Secret: Love, Money, Bernie and Me." No one would argue Mr. Madoff's value as a P.T. Barnum figure. His villainy makes him an easy target for mocking, humiliation and the prurient glimpses with which the raft of Madoff books tantalize us. Unfortunately, these books can't deliver on the big questions still swirling around the case. How can they? The investigation into Mr. Madoff's scheme is little more than half a year old. The most crucial evidence is still under wraps as prosecutors put together cases against Mr. Madoff's co-conspirators. Who, other than Mr. Madoff's right-hand man, Frank DiPascali, knowingly aided the fraud? What was Ruth Madoff's role, if any? What was his brother and chief compliance officer, Peter Madoff's, role? How about the sons who worked in the Madoff empire but didn't have a hint of the colossal scam until their father confessed to them in December 2008? Did the marriage of Peter's daughter, Shana Madoff, to the Securities and Exchange Commission official who was supposed to be watching the company have any role in perpetuating the fraud? Where is all the money? Many of these books will likely be in the discount bin by the time the average citizen finds out. We're just going to have to wait. In the meantime, the best chapters on the Madoff case are coming from the U.S. District Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York.cIn Mr. DiPascali's 47-page plea agreement filed Aug. 11, we learn how Mr. Madoff directed Mr. DiPascali to create "a phony computer trading 'platform' for the purpose of making it falsely appear that (Madoff's firm) executed securities transactions" and then "practiced using the phony trading platform in preparation for deceiving the SEC and anyone else who demanded evidence of their trading activity by purporting to demonstrate the system in action." A November 2005 audit by European clients on Mr. Madoff's investment arm is also detailed. Mr. DiPascali posed as "head of institutional operations" and created phony trading reports and custody statements. Madoff Investment Securities liked to show the Europeans U.S. trading records and U.S. regulators European trading records to play on investigators' sense of unfamiliarity.
If given a chance to undergo a plastic surgery, I wouldn't think twice for this and will go for it. Because it will not just help me physically but as well emotionally and spiritually. I would like to have a body reshaping procedure particularly my thighs and buttocks. My thighs makes me so conscious in front of others especially if I see somebody who is very gifted with their thighs. I would like to be taken cared of by an expert of this field like MYA cosmetic surgery. They are the best and are recommended by so many satisfied customers on the service they get. I wouldn't care if I have to travel a long distance just to get a reputable center like them because my trip will be all worth it.
Ison works at the Harrodsburg Herald, and says she has no plans to go part-time or give it up. She says she regularly plays Pick 3 and scratch-off games, and wouldn't have played Powerball that evening if she hadn't won a dollar with a scratch-off ticket.
"I told my husband, 'I won $200-thousand,' and he said, 'Honey, don't get excited, you haven't won that much.' He said just go to the store and see. So I walked into the store and they told me they had a $200,000 Powerball winner and I said, "Well, it was me.'"
Ison says she banked the money that day and later put it into certificates of deposit for her granddaughters, Hailey and Monica. She said she would probably use a bit of it for the food bank she began at Harrodsburg's Centennial Baptist Church.
"There's nothing I need," she said with a smile. "I'm just me like I was before I won it."
Since I am pregnant, I am too lazy to go shopping to the mall for my stuff. Good thing I came across this website and have seen their Womens Catalog section that has a huge selection of every women's need. Oh this is awesome! They have the fashion, accessories, swimwear, lingerae, footwear and many more. From different sizes to different style, name it and they have it. What I like on their website is that, they have the same price to the different sizes of their clothing line which is more advantageous to us shoppers and could save more and time. The fashion trend is also in on this website which tells me that their clothing line are the latest and in demand in the market. Visit their website now!
Hope everyone is having a good day! Ciao

Tuesday, police announced that a body found in Buena Park, Calif. on Saturday has been identified as that of missing model, Jasmine Fiore, according to KABC-TV.
The body, inside a small suitcase that was not zipped up, was discovered early Saturday in a trash bin by a passerby, reports the Orange County Register. KTLA is reporting Jasmine may have been strangled.
Jasmine was last seen only a few days ago at her Fairfax District home. She had recently moved to the Los Angeles area from Las Vegas to open a personal training business.
Her mother told authorities her daughter was getting ready to make a trip to San Diego for a poker tournament. Jasmine’s white 2007 Mercedes CL S550 is also missing and is described as having tinted windows, black rims, and paper license plates that read “Platinum Motors.”
Jasmine had modeled for Las Vegas hotels, worked as an events coordinator for Playboy’s ‘Girls of Golf,’ and done advertising for radio personality Howard Stern.She had recently dyed her hair black and changed her last name from Kinkaid to Fiore.

Mr. Novak's "Inside Report" syndicated column, shared for 30 years with the late Rowland Evans, was important reading for anyone who wanted to know what was happening in Washington. Mr. Novak and Evans broke stories about presidential politics, fiscal policy and intra-party feuds. Their journalism, which reported leaks from the highest sources of government, often had embarrassing consequences for politicians.
In recent years, Mr. Novak was best known for publicly identifying CIA operative Valerie Plame. His July 14, 2003, column was printed days after Plame's husband, former U.S. ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, publicly claimed that the Bush White House had knowingly distorted intelligence that Iraq tried to obtain uranium from Africa.
The column triggered a lengthy federal investigation into the Plame leak and resulted in the 2007 conviction of a top vice presidential aide, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, for perjury and obstruction of justice. President George W. Bush later commuted Libby's prison term.
Mr. Novak was accused by prominent journalists of being a pawn in a government retribution campaign against Wilson. Mr. Novak, who had called the U.S. invasion of Iraq "unjustified," denied the allegation.
He wrote that his initial column was meant to ask why Wilson had been sent on a CIA fact-finding mission involving the uranium. Then-Deputy Secretary of State Richard L. Armitage mentioned Plame's CIA position to Mr. Novak, and Bush aide Karl Rove confirmed it.
In a 2006 column, Mr. Novak wrote that Armitage "did not slip me this information as idle chitchat. . . . He made clear he considered it especially suited for my column." Armitage told The Washington Post that his disclosure to Mr. Novak was made in an offhand manner and that he did not know why Plame's husband was sent to Africa.
Mr. Novak lamented that the Plame story would "forever be part of my public identity" despite having written columns he said were more important.
Until the Plame controversy, Mr. Novak had largely been known as a strong anti-Communist in his foreign policy views. He also was an leading advocate of supply-side economics, a belief that tax cuts would lead to widespread financial prosperity.
David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union lobbying organization, said that Mr. Novak helped transform supply-side economics from a fringe idea into a tenet of President Ronald Reagan's economic policy. Keene called Mr. Novak "a giant of the profession" who "gave respectability and visibility to conservative ideas and positions in the 1970s, when they were mostly dismissed."
Mr. Novak was a congressional reporter for the Associated Press and the Wall Street Journal before he teamed with Evans in 1963 to write a Washington-based political column for the old New York Herald-Tribune. "Inside Report" ran in almost 300 papers nationally, including The Post. Mr. Novak continued the column after Evans's retirement in 1993. Evans died in 2001.
Focusing on political intrigue rather than starchy analysis, they had an immediate effect with news about Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater's likely nomination as the Republican presidential candidate in 1964.

Steve Rogers, director of university health services, said the campus has had a pandemic-influenza plan for about four years. He said the plan would cover an outbreak of the H1N1 influenza, also known as swine flu. Swine flu is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by Type A influenza viruses, according to an Oklahoma State Department of Health fact sheet.
In late March and early April 2009, cases of human infection with H1N1 viruses were first reported in southern California and near San Antonio, Texas, according to the sheet. Other states have reported cases of swine flu infection in humans and cases have been reported internationally, too. As of Aug. 13, there were 7,511 reported cases of swine flu and 477 deaths in relation to swine flu in the United States, according the Center for Disease Control’s Web site at http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/update.htm. Rogers said some of the some of the cases reported on campus have tested positive for Type A influenza, but that doesn’t mean it is necessarily H1N1. “We don’t know whether it is H1N1 for certain because those samples have to be confirmed by the state,” he said. “We have sent what the state has requested—three samples so far—and they will be testing those to see whether it is H1N1.”The treatment, prevention and the response for swine flue are all the same as any other influenza, Rogers said.
“There’s not a lot that we can actually do other than educate and inform because the prevention is an individual act—it is doing things like washing your hands regularly, coughing into a tissue and then throwing the tissue away,” Rogers said. “It really is a situation in which the individual is really the method for best control.” Rogers said health services and residential life have teamed up to provide meal delivery to students affected with influenza. Students diagnosed with influenza will be able to get an exemption from class, he said.
Matt Brown, director of housing and residential life, said the campus is usually affected with a “bug” each fall and spring semester. “We’re not going to stop it, we’re just going to make sure students are taking care of themselves and help try to support them to get over it, get back to class and keep going,” Brown said. “It’s going to work its way through.” Brown said on-campus students can use their meal plan to pay for the meal-delivery service.
“We’d like for the student to try to arrange for someone to pick up their food for them, but if they cannot do that we’ll send someone from our staff to do it,” he said. “Our biggest concern is we don’t want anyone starving, but we also don’t want them having to go out and eat somewhere if they’re sick. Panhellenic Council President Erika Curry said fraternities and sororities are also stepping up precautions for a possible campus-wide influenza pandemic.
“The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs followed all procedures and advice given to us by the proper authorities,” Curry said. Rogers said there’s really no reason for a whole lot of excitement or worry regarding swine flu. “Actually, with what we’re seeing, this is mild compared to what we saw in seasonal flu a couple of years ago,” he said. “It seems to respond well to medication, so if we can make the diagnosis early enough and as long as the medications hold up, we can shorten it even more.

As I've read the sports news lately, each team has been practicing a lot in preparation for the upcoming 2009 season. Well, I don't blame them, everybody wants to win. To me I hope my team will win again like they did last year. Their game was spectacular last year and hopefully they will do their best once again for the 2009 season. It was a momentum for them and I was very happy when they won. Nothing beats the Pittsburg Steelers..hehehehe..I know each of us has it's own favorite but team so I will brag on my team..lol.. So guys mark your calendar for the football season.
We Loathe Marshall: Does Depth Chart Drop Mean Brandon Marshall's Denver Exit? by Rich Kurtzman (Analyst)
Marshall was moved off the starting string yesterday, which could be seen in a few different ways. First, he's just injured, and since he won't be practicing, it's a good way to get the other guys comfortable in those spots. Especially if Marshall misses significant time during the season. Second, Marshall was taken off the roster because he's hurt and has a court date coming up on Thursday. If Marshall is found guilty, he will likely miss a good part of the season, up to eight games, which again gets the next guys in line playing time at their new positions and learning the new routes and formations that come with McDaniels' arrival. Third, and most intriguing, this move of Marshall from No. 1 overall receiver to second-stringer signifies the Broncos possibly shopping the disgruntled receiver around. Maybe McDaniels is fed up with Marshall's "injury," brashness, and likely inability to learn the multitude of plays put in front of him.
Brandon Marshall is a superb talent, but is he worth it? Is he worth all this negative media attention, in a year Denver has already been shelled by the national and local media alike? Is he worth the "rockstar" attitude that he and many other prima donna NFL receivers bring with them? Is he worth the fumbles, plays taken off, and weak work ethic? Perhaps yesterday in Dove Valley McD and CO. finally thought, "no." Or perhaps Marshall just needs a few days rest.
I may be paranoid, but I wouldn't be surprised if Marshall is gone in the next few days.

The top 10 list of cars that replaced the exchanged clunkers includes:
1. Ford Focus
2. Honda Civic
3. Toyota Corolla
4. Toyota Prius
5. Ford Escape
6. Toyota Camry
7. Dodge Caliber
8. Hyundai Elantra
9. Honda Fit
10. Chevy Cobalt
The White House warned yesterday that the Cash for Clunkers program would likely be gone by Friday if more money is not shoveled into it. The House has approved an extra $2 billion for the program already. Now it is just waiting for Senate approval. Several Senators are saying they will not back the program. Many conservatives see it as another government bailout that will have long-term consequences. Environmentally speaking, the program is doing a lot for the fuel economy of the US as consumers replace gas guzzlers with more efficient cars.

I found a website that has the kind of dress that I would like to have. Here's the picture. I so love this dress the first time I saw it on amiclubwear.com. I can't resist not buying it because aside from it's very affordable, it will also provide me the comfort that I wanted to have during my pregnancy. I could definitely wear this all time and just the style of the dress alone, it feels so refreshing and very sexy. Check out the website now!
Finally, some members of Congress are speaking out against a no-questions-asked extension of the Cash for Clunkers bill. Now it's up to the U.S. Senate to slow things down and pass a better measure than the U.S. House approved last week. The House decided to pour $2 billion into the program with the same overly attractive -- and taxpayer-costly -- $4,500 reward to motorists trading in an older, low-mileage vehicle. The better decision would be to keep the clunkers program rolling, with less of a benefit -- around $2,000 a vehicle.Of course, some Republicans say they want to kill the whole thing right now, that the original $1 billion invested in the plan was enough money. Yes, it was a large sum. And spending another $2 billion would be yet another expense our grandkids will have to pay off. However, that cost could be be worthwhile -- if Congress changes the rules and puts a more restrictive deal in front of vehicle owners. Many will still come forward to pay for a new car, that will get more mileage and pollute less. Both are good things. But the next stage of "Cash for Clunkers" definitely should not offer excessive amounts of taxpayer dollars to woo people to take those new vehicles off the showroom floors.
Now, I am 13 weeks pregnant and collecting baby clothes is one of my favorite thing to do. I am so fascinated seeing the different designs and colors of the baby clothes online and I am always tempted to buy it. We don't know the gender of our baby yet but hopefully 6 weeks from now because I can't wait to prepare all the things our baby need when he/she gets here. As future parents, we want the best for our baby. We want to make sure that we get the right stuff for our baby.
Having said so, I found a website to buy the things we need. Not just for our baby but also for us parents too. I found a shopping website for kids stuff, men and women's clothing, shoes, handbags and a lot more. Name it and they have it. They provide what everybody need. I feel very confident when I visited their website because I know I will get the right baby for our baby and for us. I will definitely shop with Zappos.com as soon as we know our baby's gender. Check it out!

The film premiered on March 10, 2007 at the South by Southwest film and music festival in Austin Texas.
