Reid tells colleagues AMA led him astray. Huh? - 0 views

  •  
    "Reid told colleagues that the AMA said it could deliver 27 Republican votes for the legislation, according to two Senate Democratic lawmakers, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Reid needs the GOP votes because at least five members of his party have vowed to vote against the doctors' fix."
  •  
    How does this make sense? Reid is the majority leader of the senate, why is he talking to external groups & "relying" on them to deliver republicans votes? He should just talk to the republicans. Sounds to me like some really weird blame game going on.

Argentine Senate Approves Fernandez's Media Bill (Update2) - Bloomberg.com - 0 views

  •  
    "The Senate handed President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner a victory, passing 44-24 a law she said will "democratize" the airwaves. After a session lasting almost 20 hours, senators approved the 164 articles of the bill without change. The central provision of the law limits ownership of cable and broadcast operations in a single market. In pushing the bill, Fernandez said Clarin holds 73 percent of Argentina's radio, television and cable licenses. "

    "Fetus wins Nobel Peace prize. Experts see excellent potential based on genetic testing. "Although the fetus has yet to actually take a breath, the results of our DNA analysis says that, once born, the child will have the capability of speech and is likely to wish for world peace" said researchers about the 20 month old fetus."

Obama: Health Care Plan Would Give Seniors Right To Choose How They Are Killed | The On... - 0 views

  •  
    ""Let me dispel these ridiculous rumors once and for all and set the record straight: Under my plan, seniors are going to be killed the way they want to be killed, end of story," said the president, who acknowledged that "wiping out" the nation's elderly population has always been his No. 1 priority. "If your grandmother would rather be euthanized in the privacy of her own home than be gutted and hanged on a high school soccer field, she is entitled to that right.""

Amazon.com: The Music of the Bible Revealed: The Deciphering of a Millenary Notation (9... - 0 views

    "Suzanne Haik-Vantoura's approach was the mirror-image of that of the Masoretes. Like them, she used the Hebrew verbal syntax as the "virtual bilingual" necessary to assign a function to each accent. Unlike the Masoretes, she actually believed what both Jewish tradition and musicological consensus indicate: the accents are primarily musical, secondarily exegetical. The resulting "deciphering key" is the only one possible based on that premise, and it explains all the features the Masoretic paradigm explains plus all the features it does not. (I owe to Masoretic scholar James D. Price the needed clue to correct the interpretation of one rare accent by her key. The correction is not in this book, however, but on my King David's Harp, Inc. Web site.)"

RachelMotte.com › Mad Church Disease: Compassion Meets Accountability - 0 views

  •  
    Combine long hours, limited finances, and each congregation's unique dysfunctions, and it's no wonder an estimated 1500 pastors leave the ministry each month. Worse, the problem isn't limited only to pastors. Ministry workers of all sorts suffer in their vocations: Clergy, volunteers, office staff, those who work in para-church ministries and other non-profits, and their families.

Google's Killer App for Investors, Consultants and Journalists -- Seeking Alpha - 0 views

  • What if you could quickly identify the customers, suppliers and partners of any company? That way, as new products suddenly become successful, you could buy the stocks of the publicly-traded suppliers that benefit.

    What if you could easily find companies that had disclosed exposure to sub-prime debt or auction-rate securities? That way, you could eliminate stocks from your portfolio before the risks blow up.

    And what if you could rapidly identify the stocks that benefit from a particular investment theme, such as solar energy?

Anything I Own - Part II - 0 views

    But this tonic dose of truth-telling may be too little too late. As an Obama supporter and contributor, I am outraged at the slowness with which the standing army of Democratic consultants and commentators publicly expressed discontent with the administration's strategic missteps this year.

Hmm ... What Obama Says vs. What He Does - 0 views

  •  
    One plain fact should outweigh all the words of Barack Obama and all the impressive trappings of the setting in which he says them: He tried to rush Congress into passing a massive government takeover of the nation's medical care before the August recess-- for a program that would not take effect until 2013!

SitePen Blog » window.name Transport - 0 views

  • The window.name transport is a new technique for secure cross-domain browser based data transfer, and can be utilized for creating secure mashups with untrusted sources. window.name is implemented in Dojo in the new dojox.io.windowName module, and it is very easy to make web services available through the window.name protocol. window.name works by loading a cross-domain HTML file in an iframe. The HTML file then sets its window.name to the string content that should be delivered to the requester. The requester can then retrieve the window.name value as the response. The requested resource never has access to the requester’s environment (JavaScript variables, cookies, and DOM).

Role of Technology Officer - 0 views

    Lastly, in the upper right quadrant are organizations in a high state of change, which use information as the key component of their business. These companies constantly use information technology to launch new products, enter new markets, and create partnerships and alliances. The companies often require a CTO as a "Visionary and Operations Manager" to meet the fast-paced demands of these interactions. This CTO must be adept at knowing the potential of the technology and how to make it work - with reliability, availability, and scalability

Should private charitys pay for heart transplants? - 0 views

  •  
    I once heard a story, probably apocryphal, because I can't find a citation for it. But it was said that Mahatma Gandhi, who often quoted from the Sermon on the Mount, once was asked what he thought about the practice of Christianity. He supposedly said, "I do not know. I have never seen it."

    Also, are we, as charitable givers, required to come up with the deductibles and subsidies for prescription drugs? What about dental? What about pre-existing conditions? What if somebody needs a heart transplant?

    Apparently, lots of people do.

    The second thing that is motivating the new public outcry is a sense of estrangement from political decisionmaking. The worry that Obamacare will result in fewer personal choices and more government fiat is legitimate. That's what Obamacare is set up to do. The debate is not merely a matter of which inputs will produce--voilà!--the desired outcomes, as the Obamacrats think. It's about freedom and responsibility. It's about a family's ability to control its fate, an individual's ability to shape his nation's future.

    His [Obama's] policies even have the potential to consign the US to a similar fate as Argentina, which suffered a painful and humiliating slide from first to Third World status last century, the paper says.
