You Tube's anti-piracy software.

YouTube's failure to complete a key piece of anti-piracy software as promised could represent a serious obstacle to efforts by Google, its new owner, to forge closer relations with the media and entertainment industry.

The video website, the internet sensation of 2006, promised in September the software would be ready by the end of this year. Known as a "content identification system", the technology is meant to make it possible to track down copyrighted music or video on YouTube, making it the first line of defence against piracy on the wildly popular website.

YouTube said on Friday the technology would not be formally launched this year and YouTube's offices were closed until the new year. While providing no further details about when the system would be made formally available, it said tests of the system had been under way with some media companies since October and the system remained "on track".


I understood Ajax at last.

So, I won over a battle of patience at last and decided to educate myself about 'Ajax'.

I have been coming across this term several times in a day and I banked on my dependable wikipedia to learn about 'Ajax'.

Ajax, shorthand for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, is a web development technique for creating interactive web applications.

The intent is to make web pages feel more responsive by exchanging small amounts of data with the server behind the scenes, so that the entire web page does not have to be reloaded each time the user requests a change. This is meant to increase the web page's interactivity, speed, and usability.

The first use of the term in public was by Jesse James Garrett in February 2005. Garrett thought of the term while in the shower, when he realized the need for a shorthand term to represent the suite of technologies he was proposing to a client.

That is an amusing story.

Now after reading this I immediately recognised its applications; I have seen it so many times
when I book my train tickets on line.

Surely this is an excellent way of presenting data and web forms; it reduces the bandwith of a website, loads the web site faster too.

But what about the SEO aspect of it?
I must find out.

Malocclusion is not a disease.

Approach an experienced orthodontist and he will immediately make you feel relaxed by saying that ‘malocculsion’ is not a disease.

It might be associated with various dysfunctions of the head and neck, known as Cranio-Mandibular Dysfunctions, or CMD.

Dysfunction of an organ or organ system is defined as disease. Some dentists, therefore, believe that orthodontists can prevent or treat certain diseases of the head and neck by means of treating specific occlusal dysfunctions.

An orthodontist is a dentist who specializes in diagnosing and treating malocclusions, which are mis-alignments of the teeth, jaws, or both.

Residents of Alexandria are a fortunate lot to have the Hayfield Dental Care in their locality mainly because all of the dentists at Hayfield Dental Care have received advanced or specialty training in dental and oral hygiene.

Hayfield Dental care has in its team full time specialists in orthodontics and they can perform almost any procedure without the need for a referral to another dental clinic.

All of the dentists at Hayfield Dental Care have perfect records with the Virginia Board of Dentistry with a history of zero complaints.

Give them a call at 703-971-2220.

Ordinary Differential Equations - Series Solutions.

This blog post is about a software for maths teachers and students.

I trust my sister, a maths professor read this and find it to be usful for her maths academy.

Solves boundary-value or initial-value problems involving nonlinear or linear ordinary differential equations of any order, or systems of such. The conditions may also be linear or nonlinear equations involving the unknown functions and their derivatives.

The solution produced is a continuous function in the form of finite power or trigonometric series, depending on the program, of user-specified number of terms valid in the entire defined interval and expanded about a user-chosen center of expansion.

Results, including the graph, can be saved or printed. You can also copy the graph to the clipboard, which you can then paste where you please (Word, Paint, etc.). You have one-click control of the graph with zooming, panning, centering, etc.

The solution may be stored in a file which may be later read by a suitable program (like POWER AND TRIGONOMETRIC SERIES) to further study it to find roots, maxima and minima, derivatives, integral, graph.

You can predefine any recurring constants. Handles a wide variety of functions, including trigonometric and hyperbolic. Results can be saved or printed. Includes a help file with instructions, examples and methodology.



SpyCatcher is an advanced anti-spyware tool.

I guess you don't need any introductions to spyware. In my opinion and experience, these are more dangerous than viruses.

SpyCatcher's comprehensive database detects tens of thousands of spyware, adware, trojans and worms, from the most common to the most obscure, and SpyCatcher updates itself automatically to provide immediate protection from the latest danger.

SpyCatcher is the only anti-spyware product with a Reinstall Shield that defends against advanced, aggressive spyware programs which silently reinstall after deletion. SpyCatcher's Protector watches your computer for running spyware and alerts you immediately when new spyware is installed, and you can run full sweeps automatically using the built-in Scheduler.

SpyCatcher's extensive online encyclopedia lets you read about the threat a program represents, ways you may have contracted it and statistics on how many other users have encountered it.

SpyCatcher's Detective feature lets you see all the hidden programs on your computer and easily remove any you don't want. SpyCatcher even disguises disabled adware as "active" to trick some ad-dependent software into running even though its threat has been eliminated.

SpyCatcher is an easy and powerful way to protect yourself from the many malicious programs that bypass anti-virus software and firewalls - don't go online without it!

The factors that LSI looks at!

The factors that LSI looks at are the Title Tag and the textual content of the page that your link is on.

Latent Symantec Indexing (LSI) is a very complex new algorithm that Google has been testing. To be more specific, LSI essentially determines how words are related to each other.

We are now entering on the familiar ground of SEO and link popularity.

Ok, let me not threaten anymore with Google’s algorithm terms.
I have been adapting the methods given by USWeb and let me share it with you here.

The main aspects of earning link popularity are press release distribution, purchasing links from link brokers, trading links with other websites (reciprocal linking) and link baiting.

Press release distribution is the most effective way to increase link popularity but it is also the most difficult because the content of your release needs to be interesting enough for publications to want to write about it.

Purchasing links from link brokers is easy and cost effective but you usually don’t receive the best quality of links because most are not within textual content and Google even automatically removes the value of links when they are placed at the bottom of websites with a whole list of outbound links.

Reciprocal linking was once the best method to increase link popularity but now it provides very little value unless you aren’t trading links with the same websites and you only receive one-way links, even then they usually are on link pages and aren’t placed within valuable textual content that is relevant to your website.

Link baiting is also a very effective way to increase link popularity but is also extremely difficult to accomplish. Link baiting is the process of hunting out links, although you are bringing the links to you through unique and popular site content. This is the natural way that popular websites remain popular and rank well in the search engines.

The best way to increase link popularity is through Blogs because blogs naturally are filled with valuable content that the search engines crave and they also naturally link to other websites they talk about within their posts.

You need links from hundreds or even thousands of Blogs with the same concept and then you will see significant improvements in your rankings.

Blogitive was created for this very purpose. Blogitive currently has more than 2000 Blogs within its network and is growing substantially every day. Through Blogitive you can submit a web release (mini press release) to these Bloggers and they will write about your release and link to your website in any manner you want, including any URL and any keyword phrase.

Catalog and classify your media collection easy!

W hat is Media Catalog Studio?
It is the program that can manage catalogs of all multimedia files in your collection. No matter whether it's – on your hard drive, CD Rom, DVD, floppy disk or portable Flash-device.

Once you have connected a device with the files to the computer, indicating the file's locations, the program will remember all the information on MP3, WMA, MP4, MPC, APE, OGG, AAC, FLAC, WV, WAV, AVI, MPEG, WMV, Video and Audio CD files.

This information will be stored in the database and you won't need to call to all your friends or search all shelves, looking for the necessary disk. Media Catalog Studio will remind you of its location, supplementing the information on artists and albums.

You will discover all power of work with the database supplied with the user-friendly interface. You can ask for any parameter from your catalog in any order: artists, albums, tracks, genres, bitrates, ratings, moods and more.

Warning forever.

Your enemies in the fabulous freeware shooter Warning Forever are increasingly gigantic bosses that grow large enough to take over the screen. Keep firing and moving to demolish the massive spaceships.

The premise of Warning Forever is simple. You command a tiny green ship with a range-adjustable cannon. You must battle a series of ever-growing, monstrous spaceships outfitted with cannons, lasers, rockets, and other weapons.

Each level averages less than a minute to beat, which only fuels the game's addictiveness. The first few levels are on the easy side, but advance into the higher levels and you'll be rewarded with battles of epic proportions.

Warning Forever is an extremely quick download, and installation is simple and fast. The graphics aren't cutting-edge, but they're appropriate for the style of the game. To keep its file size tiny, the game forgoes a musical soundtrack, but it does employ sound effects of destruction as you annihilate your foes (or are annihilated). The classic-in-the-making Warning Forever will entice nearly every gamer who enjoys a space shootout.


U.S. government is a silver buyer.

When U.S. government is a silver buyer, don’t you think it is wise to align with them and enjoy the benefits of a shrewd investing?

The reason for U.S. silver buying spree is that government silver hoard is gone; above ground stockpiles of silver bullion are low, shrinking rapidly and approaching zero.

Historically in times of market turmoil, precious metals are one of the only financial asset classes in an investment portfolio that are not simultaneously someone else's liability.

Another good reason to buy precious metals like silver or gold or platinum is they become solid hedge against stock market vagaries and declining U.S. dollar.

For over 30 years, the Monex companies have been America's silver and precious metals investment leader.

Monex Precious Metals is home to a large and dedicated staff of hard asset professionals committed to serving your precious metals investment needs and being America's best dealer with a convenient market and competitive precious metals prices.

Credible rival to MS Office

An increasingly credible rival to MS Office, includes powerful applications for making text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, diagrams, and databases, as well as HTML and XML documents.

Not only does it let you edit basic documents, such as letters and faxes, it also handles complex and multipart documents with bibliographies, reference tables, and indexes.

The interface is similar to that of MS Office users, and even advanced Office users will find almost everything they're used to: templates, collaborative features (versions, recording changes), macros, and even a programming language. lets you open and save documents in formats as diverse as MS Office, PDF, HTML, and XML. However, it normally saves files in the open-standard Oasis OpenDocument XML format, for maximum compatibility with other applications. is a compelling option for anyone in search of an alternative office suite.


Skype users received an early holiday present.

At least those in the USA and Canada, with a new year long pricing scheme that provides twelve months of unlimited calls from the USA and Canada to numbers in the USA and Canada for $29.95 a year if you sign up after January 31 2007 or up until December 31st, 2007 if you sign up now at the promotional rate of $14.95. For those with existing Skype Out credit, the value can be converted.

With the offer Skype comes even closer to passing the "duck test" of being a phone company. Even though they sell Skype In as one product and show the cost savings vs. the traditional carriers and VoIP suppliers and contend they are not a primary line replacement, with each move they make, they quack more and more like one in my view, and the view of some former Bell/AT&T types I know.

Internet can be one big waste of time.

Here is an amusing article that I came upon today morning.
It starts with a headline "The 15 Best Places to Waste Time on the Web".

The article appeared in pcworld.

Let me skip the formalities and get down to the actual 15 sites.
1.Celebrity gossip ranks #1 always.
Paris, Lindsay, Britney, and the whole gaggle of train-wrecks-that-just-won't-quit make for easy pickings on sites like Defamer, The Superficial, and IDontLikeYouInThatWay. All of the sites tend to carry nearly the same stories every day, but WWTDD ((adopting Fight Club's imaginary antihero persona as blogger) has the cruelest write-ups and the biggest pictures.
Their collection of card, parlor, puzzle, and casino-style diversions is a destination for hundreds of thousands browsers.

3.HOT or NOT
Hotornot is such an apt time-waster is that you can get virtually endless content delivered quickly with a single click.

Why read about TV shows online when you can actually watch them?
This is a gaming site.

6.Rotten Tomatoes
Of all the movie review roundup sites, Rotten Tomatoes has the largest variety, often featuring hundreds of links to reviews for any film.

RuneScape is inarguably the Web's most popular browser-based MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). It features nearly 10 million members.

8.Classic '80s Arcade Games
A gaming site.

9.Microsoft Virtual Earth 3D Beta
Microsoft recently added some pretty impressive 3D capabilities to its existing Live Search Maps service.
Aggregated news arrives with a simple premise: Users submit worthwhile news stories, and the site as a whole votes on whether the story should be promoted to the home page, where it will be seen by millions.
Flickr's public photos that can really eat up the afternoon.

12.The Internet Movie Database (IMDB)
At IMDB, it's all too easy to get lost in this "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" research. When you burn out on movies, head over to The All Music Guide, which offers similar data for all things audio.
For the absolute best online oddities, strange news reports, and random links to the Internet's most absurd sites.
Is there another place where you can get a job, find an apartment, meet your future spouse, and sell your old dinette set, all on one URL.

No need for an explanation for this-right?

Do you have something to add to this list?

The New York Times unveiled a new service today that allows readers to quickly post stories that they find on the newspaper's Web site to Digg, Facebook and Newsvine.

It marks the first time that the country's third-largest newspaper has added a news-sharing tool to its Web site, allowing readers to develop conversations and post comments about specific stories.

Readers will be able to add headlines and a small portion of text to the social media sites by clicking on the logos of Digg, Facebook and Newsvine.

"It is one of the world's most established newspapers and we have a great amount of respect for them, so the prospect of helping their audience get more out of their news and helping The Times doing some of the new things that they are looking at doing is very good for us," Davidson said. "We look at it as the beginning of, perhaps, a more meaningful relationship."

How I got my page rank!

Frankly speaking I do not know even today.
Though my page rank is only 2, I got it pretty soon after launching my blog.

But how I wish I had known Ed Shull one year before. I am sure my PR would be 5 or 6 by this time had I implemented all those great tips on how to build back links given by Ed Shull, the CEO of USWeb.

He is of the opinion that the really technical ones only want to know about one thing- how to get more links to one’s site because they firmly believe that getting back links holds the key to get link popularity.

He cites a very humorous example below.

This is commonly known as Google Bombing. Try a search in Google for the term “miserable failure”. You’ll see the first page in the results is the presidential bio for George W. Bush. Obviously he has not put that term on his personal bio. The reason behind this ranking is actually quite simple and humorous. At some point a blogger decided to link to this page with that term as the anchor text of the link, and told others to do the same. So this ranking is a result of thousands of blogs pointing back to this page with that term as the anchor text.

Please read first the list of what not to do:

1. Do not buy links from any program that offers you thousands of links to your website for a fee.

2. Do not participate in a reciprocal link program where you email Spam people asking them to swap links with you.

3. Do not use link brokers who put your link in the footer or off to the side of sites. Google has a policy in place for webmasters to understand how to not get their site penalized by these links by using a nofollow tag.

Google then determines through various filters what subject (or search term) this web page is an authority. Understanding those filters is a big part and I feel you must go through the entire article written by Ed.

Do you know Zlob?

Zlob is a back door Trojan that allows the remote attacker to perform various malicious actions on the compromised computer.

Zlob is a notorious Trojan program that is specifically developed to provide other malicious applications an immediate control over infected computer systems. Starts automatically in every Windows startup, Zlob program changes PC settings as well as modifies various files saved in computer systems. Since Zlob is categorized under a high-risk level PC threat, it is highly recommended for users to remove the application once computers get infiltrated.

Zlob is a Trojan
A Trojan is a malicious program that is disguised as or embedded within legitimate software. Trojans install themselves onto your computer secretly. Many Trojans will often be downloaded in email attachments ie .avi, .pif, .exe, .jpg files and media even codecs. Trojans may gain complete control over a system once installed.

A Trojan will usually delete files, steal passwords, change system settings, monitor and record your PC activity.Spyware Trojans are used to infiltrate a users system and once inside a Trojan can create or issue system messages, deliver advertisements, install Spyware, Rogue Anti-Spyware, Adware and other malicious software. Many Trojans also have stealth like features where the parasite can lie dormant in your system background making it extremely hard to detect.

Methods Trojans can infect:
Trojans can infect through email attachments
By visiting a web site a Trojan can infect by passing through a browser security loophole. Trojans can even bypass a firewall disguised as part of a user’s browser.
Through instant messenger programs a Trojan can also infect. If not secured by a good firewall Trojans can pass when sharing files using programs like ICQ, AOL, MSN Messenger and others.
A Trojan can enter your PC when bundled with freeware or other malicious software

Want to publish in an Open Source Newspaper?

Well, it is not a place to earn money by writing. May be Nightcaps Syndication is for real freelance writers who write mainly for the sake of writing.

It is like ‘it has to be published’ tag. I suppose my friends Sharon and Brenda whose words are popular here and elsewhere, may find this resource useful.

Nightcaps describes themselves as “just like a normal newspaper, just without the dead trees bit. Or the geographical constraints, editorial line, space restrictions and so on”.

They accept anything cogent, well argued, interesting, different; short stories, humour news, opinion, editorial style pieces, travel, cartoons, crosswords: all of the normal things you would find in a newspaper unconstrained by space.

Scooptwords have a tie up with Nightcaps Syndication.

Why a Russian bride is different?

Lovers Planet attributes the following fine qualities to Russian and other Eastern European women that distinguish them from western women.

Even young Russian women strive to create a family first and only afterwards they think about building a career.

Russian and Ukrainian brides are different from brides of other countries because marriage is normally their main priority from early age.

The divorce rate in marriages with Russian women tends to be much lower than with marriages in America, UK and Australia.

Most Russian girls have well-developed family values and instincts.

They are intelligent and well-educated. They are also loving, tender and devoted to a relationship.

This can be the main reason for millions of men from US, Canada and Australia meet, marry and admire brides from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and other countries of Eastern Europe each year.

Oh, I forgot to add the most obvious reason; russian brides are famous internationally as the most beautiful women in the world. A typical looks like a model.

What better reason a man needs?

ESP 5000 External drive/media player.

So what do you make out of this new gadget-external media player?

This sleek looking device can handle music storage and playback with ease.
It costs $499.

The Wolverine ESP 5000 is tailor-made for digital-photography enthusiasts who want to view their photos. At the top, two sturdily constructed slots accept cards in any of seven formats, including CompactFlash, SD Card, Memory Stick variants, and XD Picture card. Slip a card in, and the device prompts you to back up the card to its 120GB hard drive.

Use Windows Explorer to transfer images, music, video, or data into the preconfigured folders, and the content will be visible on the device.

Dr. Robert S. Kaplan, the father of activity based costing.

Dr.Robert Kaplan is considered as the father of activity based costing and many top account executives look at him with awe and respect.

Acorn's innovative Consumption Driven Activity Based Costing is endorsed by Dr. Robert S. Kaplan.

Acorn's innovative Consumption Driven Activity Based Costing, provides for accurate, sustainable profitability analysis of hundreds or millions of customers.

One of the main but elusive goals of striving companies is 'customer profitability' analysis.
Acoron's Activity Based Costing (ABC) provides solution by accurately driving revenue, direct costs and indirect costs to every individual customer and segment based on the unique transactions of those customers and the services that those customers consume.

Company executives should be aware that Acorn does not use averages or rates that have been the source of inaccuracy and expense with traditional activity based costing.

Customer profitability solution:
• Identifies the profitability of every individual customer or segment and their profit drivers
• Empowers managers with drill down information to determine the processes that are driving customer
• Delivers executive level reporting to understand the profitability of customer segments in order to drive marketing, sales, channel and customer retention decisions
• Delivers income statement and cost driver reports for individual customers to support customer negotiations on terms such as such as number of deliveries, minimum order sizes, returns, payment terms and buying a more profitable product.

Spyware explained.

Spyware is a broad category of software designed to intercept or take partial control of a computer's operation without the informed consent of that machine's owner or legitimate user.

It has also come to refer more broadly to software that subverts the computer's operation for the benefit of a third party.

Spyware can collect many different types of information about a user. More benign programs can attempt to track what types of websites a user visits and send this information to an advertisement agency.

More malicious versions can try to record what a user types to try to intercept passwords or credit card numbers.

Yet other versions simply launch popup advertisements. While some forms of spyware can certainly be considered malicious, some on the other hand certainly are not, and are more passive in nature by just watching, observing, and collecting information.

Many legitimate companies are now beginning to incorporate forms of spyware, and adware into their software, mainly for purposes of advertisement. While these types of programs are not to be considered spyware in the most malicious sense, they are still spyware in the sense of watching, and observing, with advertisement in mind, making them a form of what is called adware.

GNU Privacy Guard has been released.

In cryptography, encryption is the process of obscuring information to make it unreadable without special knowledge.

While encryption has been used to protect communications for centuries, only organizations and individuals with an extraordinary need for secrecy had made use of it.

In the mid-1970s, strong encryption emerged from the sole preserve of secretive government agencies into the public domain, and is now employed in protecting widely-used systems, such as Internet e-commerce, mobile telephone networks and bank automatic teller machines.

When email spam went out of control and email identity theft is order of the day, emails were encrypted too. There has been a lot of advancement in the email encryption over the years.

OpenPGP is the most widely used email encryption standard in the world. It is defined by the OpenPGP Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force. The OpenPGP standard was originally derived from PGP (Pretty Good Privacy), first created by Phil Zimmermann in 1991.

GnuPG has grown as an open-source implementation of the OpenPGP standard.
After a long phase of development as the 1.9 series, version 2.0 of the security-suite GNU Privacy Guard has been released.

Google’s algorithm is very complex.

So let me stay away from being too technical.(as if I am a techno savvy.)

But when you concentrate on optimizing your website and building link popularity, just remember a few basic details of Google’s algorithm.

There is also a very complex new algorithm that Google has been testing, Latent Symantec Indexing (LSI). LSI essentially determines how words are related to each other, such as how dog is related to cat.

Many people think this has to do with content on your own website but from our analysis it has more to do with the page that a link is coming from when it is hyperlinked to your website.

The factors that LSI looks at are the Title Tag and the textual content of the page that your link is on. Therefore it is becoming more important to increase link popularity by receiving links on different pages of different websites that have content that is similar to the content on your website.

Google also looks at the text that surrounds the link and determines how targeted that text is compared to the page that the link points to.

The algorithm also looks at the Title Tag of the page the link is on as well as important SEO factors such as H1 Tags and other META data.

I will stop here because I don’t want you to run away from my blog by stuffing you with so much in one sitting.

Take your time and go through the full article on how to increase link popularity, leisurely.

Prom dresses.

Till the time of our advanced age, we never stop looking forward to festivals or social gatherings.

We use those days as great opportunities to show our best dresses, designer watches, unique ties and shoes and what not?

Students are more eager than grown ups to impress others with their appearance.And they do get more occasions for that.

The final day at the school is one such day that gives a lot of excitement and fun for the final year students.

In the United States and Canada, a prom, short for promenade, is used to describe a formal dance held at the end of the high school academic year.

Boys usually dress in black tie and girls traditionally wear formal gowns or dresses adorned with a corsage given them by their date.

The dress they wear on this day is called prom dress. Students, parents and the school academic staff, all give great importance to prom dresses.

Countless hours and hundreds of dollars will be spent to buy the best prom dress. Each one will want to out smart their class mates. With their high school prom being one of the most memorable nights in their life, it is obvious that prom dresses are one of the most important items in any girl’s prom plans. Prom pictures will be a cherished treasure in the students’ life.

I too feel like ordering one for me.(sigh)

Social Security agency warns of e-mail scam.

May be for once I am glad that I am not in U.S.

I thought so after I read the news in computer world that phony e-mail seeks personal information, threatens to close accounts.

The U.S. Social Security Administration is warning the public about a fraudulent e-mail purporting to be from the agency and designed to lure users into divulging personal information.
In a statement published on its Web site, the SSA said it has received several reports of an e-mail being circulated with the subject header of "Cost-of-Living for 2007 update."

The e-mail is designed to appear as if it were from the agency and provides information about a 3.3% benefit increase for 2007. It then proceeds to ask the recipient for personal information warning that those who failed to provide it by Nov. 11 would have their accounts suspended indefinitely.

Any experience mate?

We are constantly on the lookout for the latest in technology.

I think I meet head on Ron Sharon, owner of Zetta Global who says “We are constantly on the lookout for the latest in technology to offer our growing clientele,”, and I am also on the lookout for any computer related product that is an improvisation of its present version.

ZTMax is in my favorites and I check them up for new gadgets twice a week.

Today, I am pleasantly surprised to find two fantastic products that are tested, approved and already hit the market.

The photo you see displays the somewhat weird looking Multifunctional Digital Mini Speaker. But it looks ok in the closed position-what do you think?

This sleek and innovative mini speaker was created with you as a music lover in mind.

By using the latest in digital driver technology, and superior speaker design, it comes complete with a built in mp3 decoder chips, and supports all types of mp3 files.

The other important features are that it has a plug in SD/MMC card and a convenient USB port to be able to read any portable device and VCD reader. That is very thoughtful really.

And the best news is that its classic built in 1500mAH lithium battery can support hi-fi music for up to 10 hours.

The Multifunctional Digital Mini Speaker is priced at $49.95

Whats the trendiest jewelry design today?

I am also an ordinary woman like you. I am truly fascinated by the exotic and unique design in jewelry.

I was on the look out for a great resource where I can keep myself updated on the latest arrivals in ear rings and bracelets.

I came across a wonderful Jewelry Discussion forum last week where I found out what those glamorous movie stars fancy now. I wanted to know what are the recommendations for specific events, do they prefer traditional diamond jewelry or do they go for more dazzling platinum made necklaces.

From antique to modern, everything about jewels and gems are discussed here passionately.
This is one place to discuss on the originality, design of antique or modern jewelry designs! Even as a guest you can read topics such as silver jewelry, silver pendant, the most expensive and durable platinum jewelry, eye catching titanium jewelry.

When RCI crowns Fairfield Resorts..

When over 80% of all fairfield resorts have been awarded a "Gold Crown" or "Resort of International Distinction" ranking by RCI (Resort Condominiums International), what else an international timeshare exchange needs to prove?

And this is an elite honor only the top 10% of timeshare properties throughout the world have earned.

Few would have imagined its present status when Fairfield began as a land development company selling subdivided lots, whole ownership condos and custom-built homes in large master-planned communities such as Fairfield Bay, Fairfield Sapphire Valley and Fairfield Glade in 1966.

It is not just by accident that their inventory boasts of a half-million rooms spans nearly every facet of lodging hospitality – from vacation ownership condos, to hotel rooms and suites, to vacation rentals of villas, cottages, bungalows, campgrounds, city apartments, fractional private residences or luxury destination clubs and boats.

Operating from their head quarters in Orlando, Florida with the help of 9000 employees, they serve over half a million families that enjoy the Fairfield lifestyle.

The company's new upper-end tier of luxury Presidential Suites and Adventure Club Continual innovations is an ample proof of their continuous innovation.

Throw your antivirus way.

With MS Windows Vista, which was released to manufacturing yesterday as per news papers today, Bill Gates assured that we may never need an external antivirus and firewall.

Oh my God! What a relief.

With due credit to Symantec and others, I place my trust on MicroSoft products more than on anyothers in the world.

If Bill Gates says so, then it will be so. Thats all. No further debate on this.

It seems Vista would be more secure than Windows XP.

Two such features -- namely Vista's new parental controls, and Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR), which renders the object code of the system kernel in memory differently each time to thwart the designs of malicious code -- render his son's Vista machine comfortable enough for him to use, even though production-quality anti-virus software for the unit has yet to be completed.

Capella selects three students to run in the Antarctica marathon.

Capella University not only confines itself to quality teaching through their online degree programs but also finds great pleasure in awarding scholarships to deserving students.

The three Capella University students chosen to compete in the upcoming Antarctica Marathon are:
* One received a Purple Heart after being wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq.
* One lost 150 pounds through a commitment to running and healthy eating.
* One had to learn to walk again after breaking her neck in a car crash, and is a recent cancer survivor.

The event is scheduled to be held in King George Island on Feb. 26, 2007

The national leader, Capella University which was founded in 1993, is an accredited university that offers various online degree programs in business, information technology, education and human services.

This online university currently serves 16,000 students from all 50 states and 63 countries.

Capella University is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Capella Education Company, headquartered in Minneapolis. For more information, please visit or call 1-888-CAPELLA (227-3552).

It is advantage to bloggers with Skype’s beta 3.0

Skype 3.0 (for Windows) has just been released in Beta and there is plenty for bloggers to be excited about in the new features being added.

Click to Call - The new release includes ‘Click to Call’ which allows website owners to put an icon on their blog or site which allows readers to simply click it to call the site owner via Skype. This will be useful for many - although larger website owners could end up spending most of their day on skype.

To be able to have this ‘click to call’ functionality but to be able to charge per minute/hour etc and have the money earned go into a PayPal account would be an interesting feature to see added. Surely integration with PayPal is on the cards as both Skype and PayPal are owned by the eBay team.

Phishing scams mainly responsible for 55 percent increase.

Phishing scams mainly responsible for 55 percent increase in online banking fraud in U.K., reports computer world.

The loss figure of $42.8 million isn't broken down by individual financial institutions as per Association for Payment Clearing Services (APACS).

97% of the credit-card transactions within the U.K. are handled by HSBC Bank PLC and Barclays PLC.

Through phishing, criminals try to capture financial details through fraudulent e-mails and sophisticated fake banking Web sites. Account numbers, log-ins and passwords are often then sold online to other fraudsters who try to turn them into profit.

Surely a big chain of professional thieves are roaming the cyber space.

Almost all the e-commerce web sites are relentlessly warning user to check the websites and look for fraudulent SSL certificates.

I would say the users are also responsible of their losses.

Monex Deposit Company has announced…

America's gold, silver and precious metals investment leader Monex has announced through a web release that people can even buy 1/10th of an ounce of gold or silver through them and they even offer to store it for you at an independent bank or depository if you buy in bigger quantity.

At a time when the world demand for silver now exceeds annual production, there can never a better opportunity to stock up your precious metals like U.S. Government doing now.

But the choice is yours; you can buy either gold or silver in coin as well as ingot form.

Like every American, your best buys in fractional-ounce gold coins are American Eagles, Canadian Maple Leafs, or Krugerrands because Gold coins are easier to sell than gold bars.

As a shrewd buyer, make sure that you buy gold coins that are known for faultless business ethics. Monex has been serving the Americans for over 3 decades and their reputation is known even in India.

Just for your information, do you know that consumption of gold in jewelry accounts for about three-fourths of the world's production of gold?

Haven’t you heard Thomas Fuller’s golden words, “It is much better to have your gold in the hand than in the heart”?

Your TV monitor may become obsolete.

This is just my opinion after I read the news in my local daily today that Microsoft will launch a new service later this month that allows customers to download movies and television programs through their Xbox 360 gaming consoles.

PC world also reports that the company has signed deals that allow it to sell or rent an initial 1000 hours of programming from CBS Broadcasting, Viacom's MTV Networks and Paramount Pictures, Turner Broadcasting System, Zuffa's Ultimate Fighting Championship, and Warner Bros Home Entertainment.

Look at this fantastic feature:
Movies will be available for rental and can be stored on the Xbox for up to 14 days, but once the movie starts playing the customer will have 24 hours in which to view it. The content will also be offered in high-definition format for an extra charge.

But movie lovers the world over will be sulking at this note that says the movies and TV programs will be available only in the U.S., at least initially.

The service will be available to Xbox Live subscribers from November.

Sometimes our selection may not be correct.

It is not always that we end up in right selection-be it purchase of an electronic utility item, or a small toy for the kid next door.

It would be better if we leave the choice to the shop keeper in certain matters; funeral flowers is one such area, where the florist knows much better than us. In their long years of service, they might have served different religions and customs.

Dot Flowers is a well known business house that has been catering to thousands of customers.
They are fully aware that flowers for funerals need extra care and novices may not always order appropriate floral arrangements.

But when ordering flowers for a funeral, the stakes are much higher.

You want the flowers to be delivered on time and be exactly as you ordered. After all, this is your last chance to say goodbye through your flowers, so it is all the important that they be just right.

With Dot Flowers, every order for funeral is meticulously undertaken and the address of delivery is carefully verified.

After delivery that is always made in time, they inform the sender that to let them know that the order has been verified and that everything is on schedule.

Another medico legal issue rocks America.

It seems there is no end to the miseries of U.S. citizens who are ever vulnerable to defective medications and medical devices. It is such a pity that they are affected by medicines that are initially approved by US Food and Drug Administration but are later found to produce harmful side effects.

The drug in dispute is fosamax, manufactured by Merck and used for treating Osteoporosis.

It is believed that Fosamax and other similar bisphosphonate drugs may cause osteonecrosis of the jaw by blocking the normal reproduction of bone cells.

Ok, I will clear your confusion.

Osteoporosis, a disease of bone in which the bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced. Mostly women who have passed menopause are affected by this disease. Smoking is also considered as one of the causes apart from calcium and vitamin D deficiencies.

Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) is also commonly referred to as "dead jaw" and “fossy jaw”.

Hundreds of patients who are diagnosed with osteonecrosis of the jaw, have sought expert legal help from Parker & Waichman, LLP, the leader in defective pharmaceutical litigation.

The American Dental Association also took action by asking patients of Osteoporosis to notify their physician or dentist immediately if they have taken a bisphosphonate medication.

The ADA also recommends that patients tell their physicians and dentists that they are taking bisphosphonate medications before any dental work is performed.

It seems that in matters of such crisis, Parker & Waichman, LLP is the automatic choice being a leading products liability and personal injury law firm.

The firm is currently representing individuals injured by Vioxx, Bextra, Zyprexa, Ketek, and ReNu with MoistureLoc, Guidant Defibrillators and many other defective drugs and medical products.

For more information on Parker & Waichman, LLP, please visit:

Where do you stand?

Just read below and ascertain where you stand as far as your knowledge of SEO is concerned.

When you do a search on Google you will normally see two paid Ads by Google which are from their AdWords network. Below those Ads are the Organic (Natural) results of the Search Engine.

When you search for ‘Cordless mouse, ’Google obediently produced a list of search results called search engine results pages (SERPs). It may look like “Results 1 - 10 of about 100,000 for Cordless Mouse.

Your first action will be to click on the first listing from the SERPs. If not satisfied with resultant website, you will click on the second listing and so on but you might invariably not go beyond that page which has 10 listings from the search result.

Suppose you have spent about 15 minutes to visit the first 10 search results, So who will visit the remaining 99,990 pages?

You need not feel sorry for them because they have not created their website in such way that it has not ended up in the first or second page of the SERPs.

You can say, they have not optimized their website as per the search engine terms (has a different name, but will not terrify you in the first day itself).

In summary, Search engine optimization (SEO) is a process by which you take your website to the top of the SERPs., a pioneer in search engine optimization service and tools say that most local business houses are overlooking this aspect of getting on top of the search engines’ search results in a natural (organic) manner.

Achieving Organic Search Engine Rankings and the Organic results of Google are not to be neglected by any webmaster that is serious about Local Marketing.

Website owners who are bent upon increasing their revenue should take note of the two main factors that determine what website is considered most relevant for a search term; relevant website content and your popularity on the Internet compared to your competition.

With a little help from a highly qualified Search Engine Optimization company, local companies and businesses can easily beat the competition in the search engine ranking race.

The lure of foreign university is waning?

It seems so because of the increasing number of online education institutions that announce their presence to the students’ world.

Students are also wise enough to recognize the several advantages of e-learning that reduces their expenses in travel, food, study materials and high tuition fees that are usually associated with conventional form of education.

The time flexibility is another major factor that weighs in favor of virtual learning.

Moreover, internet communication has many facilities like audio chatting, web cam and discussion boards that make interaction between students and tutors very easy.

Speaking of online universities, I thought I can mention here about Capella University that offers graduate and post graduate degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, and psychology; in all 76 graduate and undergraduate specializations and 16 certificate specializations.

16,000 students from all 50 states and 63 countries are at present enrolled with Capella.

The cheerful news to international students is that, it is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

Would you listen to a former presidential candidate?

If you visit the website of Monex Deposit Company (MDC), you will have the privilege of listening to some of top financial experts including a former presidential candidate, through video clips on many wealth protection and profit potential benefits of owning gold and other precious metals.

I do not think there will ever be a difference of opinion on the value of precious metals as our most treasured assets.

Smart people continue to amass their gold reserve because they know for certain that it is the only answer to protect themselves against the fiat currencies.

For those who always expect the best return on investment (ROI), buying gold coins has become a habit. For them, whatever happens to their other investments like shares and debentures due to conditions beyond their control, they will still sleep soundly with the comforting knowledge of their gold assets sitting safely in lockers.

For over 30 years, the Monex companies have been America's gold and precious metals investment leader. We can buy with confidence gold, silver, platinum and palladium from them either as coins or ingots.

Can anyone challenge a federal court?

Yes, you can if you have the courage and determination of simmons jannace & stagg.

As a work at home mom, I have a soft corner for women who are easily victimized.
I am happy to report the fight for justice by one such woman in the U.S.

When an attorney sought $2,000,000 as a contingency fee, after representing a 9/11 victim on the distribution of Victims Compensation Fund, he filed suit in federal court seeking a declaratory judgment entitling him to his fee.

Simmons, Jannace & Stagg moved to dismiss the federal action, arguing that the Victims Compensation Fund did not provide federal jurisdiction for an action by an attorney seeking to protect his fee.

The federal court, after hearing argument, agreed that the Victims Compensation Fund did not provide federal court jurisdiction.

The contestant, a woman who lost her husband in 9/11 attack was greatly relieved when the court stayed the attorney’s action.

This is the first federal court decision holding that attorneys’ fee disputes arising out of the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund.

We must praise the principled stand of Simmons, Jannace & Stagg.

And this company is supposed to protect.

Ed Magedson, the owner of may probably be used by his victims.

When they took up the responsibility of protecting the consumers’ interest against getting ripped off by companies, their intentions were welcome.

But things turned sour when Rip-Off Report failed to check out the legitimacy of consumers’ complaints. is a worldwide consumer reporting Website & Publication, by consumers, for consumers, to file & document complaints about companies or individuals who ripoff consumers.

Several allegations surfaced against them when they started creating fake complaints about companies for the purpose of extortion. The Rip Off Report uses the ranking power of their website to rank for companies names and use those rankings to extort money. is now willing to defend the victims who are affected by this bad publicity. They have successfully worked with one company already to push the Rip Off Report ranking back into Google and remove it from the top rankings that are unfairly hurting companies.

The affected companies can now approach and avail their services to have the bad report removed from search engines for a small fee.

Must you go to California to taste the California Wine?

Frankly speaking, I do not know the answer.

But I can find out and share the knowledge if I decide to go to California Wine Country, which is one of the attractive destinations of Pacific Northwest Vacations, that belongs to Wyndham Vacation Ownership, Inc.

They offer over 18,000 fully furnished, condominium-style units spread over 140 resort properties throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and the South Pacific.

Their holiday destinations are romantic places like Angel’s Camp California, Lake Tahoe, Reno Packages, San Francisco Vacations, Seaside Oregon and California Wine Country.

I think I must make a note to visit Ledgewood Creek near Napa, Santa Barbara County, Paso Robles and Sonoma Count, which are famous for wine manufacturing.

At prices starting at $79, I can’t afford not to take advantage of these great vacation packages offered by TrendWest Getaways Vacation Packages.

I need not worry about finding accommodation, since their vacation package is inclusive of that plus there will be few other added goodies too.

I better book now to save up to 70%.

PC world reports that other countries are ahead of U.S.

I felt elated when I read the PC World’s report on Internet Connectivity Outside of the United States

I quote them:
“Nearly 60 publications in countries ranging from Australia and Bangladesh to Venezuela and Vietnam either carry the PC World name or are associated with us in some way. So we asked editors at several of them to tell us how their readers get online. Not surprisingly, our colleagues report that many countries are substantially ahead of the United States in many respects”

I remember paying upto Rs.9800 ( $200) per month when I started using internet in 1998. At that time only dial up connection was available in India with the maximum speed of 56kbps.

India has marched ahead since that time in communications tehnology.

Today I pay only Rs.900 per month plus taxes for an unlimited internet usage with a broadband connection offered by BSNL.
I get a speed of 256kbps.

I also use an advanced technology of internet connectivity provided by Reliance Info.
It works like this:
They give a very small phone cum modem in the shape and size of a credit card fitted with a mini antenna. This is called Sierra card.
I have to insert this in the card reader slot in my laptop.
With this, I can access internet even while on the move (car, train, bus) across India.

I am given to understand that this technology is not even available in the U.S., but I don’t know for sure.

What did the hackers discuss?

“To blame others is human”-agreed?
Have you ever imagined that hackers will put the blame on us (the users) for security breach?

Yes, it is true. When we always blamed the hardware or software for password thefts, hackers and professionals point their fingers on users only.

The world’s premier hacker conference DefCon, held in Las Vegas last week, threw a different light on this vexing issue.

How many times users left their passwords on open note books, kept in slips under the keyboard in spite of warnings that they see in their everyday work?

The fact that legendry hacker Kevin Mitnic’s notorious attacks were based more on manipulating people than software, should make us listen to the professionals more seriously.

The conference reminded the internet world, the number of times users have fallen easy prey to phishing emails. In fact I was one of the victims last week.

This blog post is sponsored by Christmas Gifts, who through their web release, talked about some very interesting news about Santa Claus.

The artist Alexander Anderson created the first American image of Nicholas for the occasion of the first anniversary of ‘The New York Historical Society’ on December 6, 1810.

Nicholas was shown in a gift-giving role with children's treats in stockings hanging at a fireplace.

In his satirical fiction, Knickerbocker's History of New York in January 1809, Washington Irving made numerous references to a jolly St. Nicholas character as an elfin Dutch burgher with a clay pipe and not
a saintly bishop.

Other legends:
The first Dutch emigrant ship had a figurehead of St. Nicholas;
The first church was dedicated to him;
St. Nicholas comes down chimneys to bring gifts.

Now coming to the gift baskets for Christmas, I wish some of the finest products offered in the gourmet industry like Torn Ranch Rose from that was also featured in ‘The Gourmet Retailer’
