How-to Survive As A Speculator – Adam Hamilton

An excellent read:

 “In order to ensure that this common speculation hazard doesn’t crush you, there are crucial steps to take so you not only survive but thrive as a speculator.

Translations

I noticed that I’ve been getting a lot of traffic from places all over the world these days so I decided to add a couple “translation” buttons on the right side of my site.

Currently I only have ones for French, Italian and Spanish but I’ll be adding more when I get the chance.  If you are interested in doing this for your blog see a great explanation here.

Once I get a chance I plan on adding the ability to subscribe from some of the new homepage’s that have been gaining traction also – like pageflakes and my favourite netvibes.

Even just a “hello!” would make me smile.

The 2nd richest man in the world, Warren Buffet, is giving his money to the 1st richest man in the world – Bill Gates (and his wife). 

My favourite quotes from the article: 

"Who wouldn't select Tiger Woods to take his place in a high-stakes golf game?

 "…A very rich person should leave his kids enough to do anything but not enough to do nothin."

RFID Monitored Herbarium


The Herbarium is a design concept that makes growing herbs on your windowsill as automated and easy as making a pot of coffee – even for the non-botanically-inclined.

Each pad is also equipped with a RFID tag, which is monitored by the Herbarium to ensure optimal growing conditions for each individual plant (whether basil, thyme, sage, etc.), providing a little extra help for those of us without green thumbs. (link)

Man Alters Diet – Monkey Chow Food Only

Can a human subsist on a constant diet of pelletized, nutritionally complete food like puppies and monkeys do? For the good of human kind, I'm about to find out. On June 3, 2006, I began my week of eating nothing but monkey chow: "a complete and balanced diet for the nutrition of primates, including the great apes."
