Do you know where The Western White House is?

The Western White House is located in San Clemente.
But Nixon called it “Casa Pacifica’ when he bought the H.H. Cotton estate in 1968.

The 65000 and odd populated San Clemente is a city in Orange County, California; its earliest occupants were known as Juaneño Indians who were then displaced by the Spanish. The great city of San Clemente was founded in 1925 by real estate developer Ole Hanson.

San Clemente is also the surfing media capital of the world as well as a premier surfing destination. It is home to Surfing Magazine, The Surfer's Journal, and Longboard Magazine, with Surfer Magazine just up the freeway in San Juan Capistrano.

John Miller is a visionary in my opinion. I believe he might have seen face to face all those world leaders who visited San Clemente. During Nixon's tenure it was visited by world leaders and cronies alike, including Soviet Premier Leonid Brezhnev, Mexican President Gustavo Díaz Ordaz, Japanese Prime Minister Eisaku Sato, Henry Kissinger, and Bebe Rebozo

You may be wondering why I am bringing John Miller along with such great celebrities!
Long before the computers of today entered in every houses of San Clemente, he established his computer maintenance service. Yes his dedicated and skilled Computer Repair in San Clemente was started in as early as 1989.

Since then he kept himself updated with the emerging technological advancements in computer world and his services include hardware, software, networking, virus removal, adware removal, upgrades and more!

Though by now he is very well known personally in San Clemente, I give below his contact details.

Warning! You may end up buying more diamonds here than you intended to.

Absolutely fascinated by all those fairy tales, I was sure that a beautiful prince from a far way land will offer me the most gorgeous looking diamond engagement ring and ask for my hand.

But it was not to be in real world though my in-laws gifted me a pair of ancient diamond earrings that belonged to their family. But then diamond buying those days involved a lot of leg work as one has to visit stores after stores and the choice was limited to only a handful of loose diamonds.

Nowadays it is a different story. One can buy discount diamonds online from over 80,000 varieties of all shapes and sizes from the comfort of their home from a single source.

The ‘source’ I meant was not just a petty jewelry shop but a public limited company.
This implies that they must operate at a higher standard than most. They report quarterly to not only their investors, but to independent reviewers as well as the Federal Securities and Exchange Commission. This means you can rest easy knowing that you are buying from a company that offers only the highest level of service and satisfaction with discount diamond jewelry.

Who would not like a 10 day, no questions asked return policy on our diamonds?
Do you know that you can have the diamond literally in your hand for 10 days to look it over, have it appraised, ask your friends, or whatever you like. If you are not 100% satisfied just send it back.

That is why I predict a buyer may end up buying more diamonds than originally intended to.

Do you know Peer Cast?

PeerCast is a simple, free way to listen to radio and watch video on the Internet. It uses P2P technology to let anyone become a broadcaster without the costs of traditional streaming. This means you get to hear and watch stations not normally found on commercially funded sites.

The unique feature about PeerCast is a robust network because there is no central server; each user can be a client, server or broadcaster of streams. It offers anonymity for broadcasters because there is no easy way to trace back to the original stream, it is even possible to broadcast directly to a single client located in a different country and have that provide the source for the entire network.

PeerCast can also serve streams directly to any media player. This means that it can be used in place of a Shoutcast/Icecast server to provide both direct and P2P streaming at the same time.

It works in much the same way as other P2P fileshare clients except that instead of downloading files, the users download streams. These streams are then exchanged in real-time with other users. No data is stored locally on any machine connected to the network.

Do you know Link baiting?

Link baiting is an 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.

Wondering is there any other method?

Sure, read further.

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.


Would you like to what is the best?
Just leave this link building work to he professionals like blogitive.com who are real masters in this.

Blogitive has proven to be extremely effective in increasing link popularity and is also very cost effective. Please visit Blogitive.com to learn more about this service and how you can finally achieve the top search engine rankings that you never thought was possible.

New ringtone for under 20 kids.

Today you need not bribe your teen age kids with any new junk food.

Tell them about the latest verizon ringtones, that offers a new ringtone targeted at kids who are under 20.

It is called the mosquito ringtone.

Why only for them?
Because this ringtone that only kids under 20 can hear when they are in their classroom without adults hearing the ring. The kids call it Teen Buzz, and it's spreading like fire from phone to phone via text messages and Bluetooth .

But I think I read that mobile phones are banned from American schools due to SMS abuse-is that so?

In India, even Engineering students are barred from taking their mobiles to their colleges for the same reason.

Do you know Leonhard Euler?

Being a mathematician myself, I was attracted to this featured article in wikipedia today.
I am glad to put the article here for the benefit of fellow mathematicians.

Leonhard Euler was a Swiss mathematician and physicist.
He developed important concepts and proved mathematical theorems in fields as diverse as calculus, number theory and topology. He introduced much of the modern mathematical terminology and notation, particularly for mathematical analysis, such as the notion of a mathematical function.

He is also renowned for his work in mechanics, optics and astronomy. Euler is considered to be the preeminent mathematician of the 18th century and one of the greatest of all time. He is also the most prolific according to the Guinness Book of Records; his collected works fill 60–80 quarto volumes.

Euler was featured on the sixth series of the Swiss 10-franc banknote and on numerous Swiss, German and Russian stamps. The asteroid 2002 Euler was named in his honor.

This is a Hindi movie review.

I have not viewed a Hindi movie since 1990.

But my son urged to me see this block buster ‘Dus’ and so I gave in to his recommendation.

And I heartily congratulate his excellent taste. The movie was stunning.

‘Dus’ means ten. This is a multi star movie featuring Sanjay Dutt, Abishek Bachan and Sunil Shetty.

The film is certainly devoid of stupid romances and ugly sex scenes.

But the background music was terrific keeping with the tempo of the script. All characters speak very less and act in subdued manner.

The visuals are very good and the fight scenes are superb.

The 15 minutes or so climax is nail biting and every actor has contributed to the tension of the climax.

A must see movie.

The stunning growth of Fairfield Resorts.

The history and growth of fairfield resorts can be a role model for aspiring entrepreneurs.

The owner of the largest network of holiday resorts and allied travel services in the world, started in a humble way in 1966 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.

The year 1979 saw Fairfield branching off into the timeshare concept.

The company's exceptional development standards, innovative products and unmatched hospitality expertise enabled them to be ranked as the third largest timeshare exchange network in the world.

The following statistics will reveal its exceptional growth.
Over half a million families enjoy the Fairfield lifestyle;
More than 70 world-class resorts in 21 states and U.S. territories;
9,000-plus timeshare condominiums;
The company has close to 9,000 employees nationwide;

Achievement:
By introducing FairShare Plus® in 1991, they offered consumers substantially greater flexibility through a yearly allotment of points that could be "spent" in increments for custom-sized accommodations at any time of the year and for varying lengths of stay.

Recognition:
Over 80% of all Fairfield resorts have been awarded a "Gold Crown" or "Resort of International Distinction" ranking by RCI, an elite honor only the top 10% of timeshare properties throughout the world have earned.

The best site for UFO information.

Human kind has a great fascination for wonders that are unexplained scientifically.

There are thousands of stories weaved around our imagination in areas that continue to baffle us like Fairy Angels, witches, after death experiences, Herculean feats by men and animals.
As children, we have read so many fairy tales, distant lands that are filled with talking animals and birds.

We all still retain our child like fascination for those wonders even now. That’s why stories and facts are passed onto generations and generations.

The modern day astronaut’s quest for gaining more knowledge in such mysteries and consequent expeditions to space and moon continue to keep us enthralled.
One of the so far not fully resolved mysteries is life in other planets. We are all in fact awaiting such close encounter of the third kind.

Since the sighting of an UFO in modern era was reported as late as in 1942, scientists and ordinary human beings are immediately attracted whenever an article or a news item about those flying saucers appears in offline print media.

Now, won’t the netizens who hold high fascinations for UFO will be happy if they are introduced to an exclusive website for UFO and other space related news and articles?

Do you know that in 1988 a memorial plaque was installed at the lighthouse where Frederick Valentich, who disappeared after a close encounter with a UFO?

When selecting the perfect blinds, keep your eyes wide open.

On a hot July afternoon, I was wandering aimlessly on the streets of Chantily.

It was one of those days when I was in the mood to abdicate my routine and just enjoy the open sky. It happens to everyone once in a way-right?

Even at that temperature, the streets were filled with tourists and business was brisk all around.

I thought I heard my name called out but was not sure. After all I was also rather new to Chantily.

Again I heard the sound of my name but this time I caught the caller. Someone was beckoning me from a cozy looking restaurant. I could not immediately identify the figure.
When I neared him, I was greeted with a big hug and a loud, cheerful voice. That did it. I recognized him by his voice; he was my classmate in the college. What a surprise!

He took me in to a windowless office and made me sit in a comfortable chair in a cool corner but with a view of the entrance. After the exchange of pleasantries, I asked him how did he spot me from his office?

With a smirk in his face, he pulled a string and a blind opened. I was speechless because, till that time I never spotted the blind, since it blended so well with the wooden panels on the wall.

He told me that he bought it online from a reputed vendor. When I asked him about how he managed the exact color combination, he simply said he asked for free samples from which it was easy to choose the matching color.

He confessed it was very difficult initially to decide on his purchase from their website, as the product range displayed tempting window blind & shade products include wood blinds, faux wood blinds, mini blinds, and vertical blinds. The window shades includes roman shades, cellular shades, pleated shades, roller shades, and woven wood bamboo shades.

But he received excellent tips and advice on window blind treatments from the experts.
Even the correct installation procedure was downloaded from their website in PDF format with complete pictures. The purchase price included all brackets and mounting materials.

He closed the blind again so that I can feel and admire the smooth texture.

He treated me to a nice meal and I parted after assuring him that I will keep in touch

Is ‘Distant Learning ‘a misnomer?

I may be wrong but for me it sounds so; in fact the monitor is so near to you while studying college course online, can we still call it distance learning?

I think ‘Online Learning’ is more apt.

Capella University was the inspiration of Stephen Shank, former CEO of Tonka Corporation, who felt that many adults were underserved by traditional universities. He envisioned a high quality university that people could attend from any location.

Founded in 1993, Capella University is an accredited online university that offers graduate degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, and psychology, and bachelor’s degree programs in business and information technology.

Since the Capella is recognized by The Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, currently 16,000 students from all 50 states and 63 countries are pursuing their studies online.

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

Reverse swing-what is it?

Though many of the cricket lovers have been hearing the term ‘Reverse Swing’, it is quite possible they might not have understood the exact meaning of it.

Normal swing occurs mostly when the ball is fairly new. As it wears more, the aerodynamics of the asymmetry change and it is more difficult to extract a large amount of swing.

When the ball becomes very old—around 40 or more overs, it can begin to swing towards the polished side rather than the rough side. This is known as reverse swing.

In essence, both sides have turbulent flow, but here the seam causes the airflow to separate earlier on one side. The result is always a swing to the side with the later separation, so the swing is away from the seam. See External Links

Reverse swing is difficult to achieve consistently, as it relies on uneven wear of the ball, tends to occur mostly in hot, dry weather conditions, and requires bowling at high speed.

Normal swing can be achieved at relatively moderate bowling speeds, but only the fastest bowlers can regularly produce reverse swing.

Reverse swing tends to be stronger than normal swing, and to occur late in the ball's trajectory.

Do you know that Chocolate was discovered by Mesoamerican civilization?

Just fooling myself around with a totally different topic today. Sometimes we do get this irrestible urge to wander away in unknown areas-right?

I will just give you some trivial information about chocolates; you may be the star of attrction in the next party you attend!

Do you know that the word chocolate is derived from the Nahuatl language of the Aztecs of Mexico?

Pure and yummy chocolates of the Swiss are a rarity in India. Not many can afford even if it is occasionally available in grey markets. Except people who are diabetic like me, chocolates enslave people irrespective of their age.

Do you that the chocolate residue found in an ancient Maya pot suggest that Mayans were drinking chocolate 2,600 years ago? History says that this is the earliest record of cacao use.

More chocolates myths:
*The Aztecs associated chocolate with Xochiquetzal, the goddess of fertility.
*Chocolate intake has been linked with release of serotonin in the brain, which is thought to produce feelings of pleasure
*Cocoa possesses a significant antioxidant action
*There is a popular belief that the consumption of chocolate can cause acne.
*Romantic lore commonly identifies chocolate as an aphrodisiac.

So, how do you like it?

My golden advice has fallen in deaf ears.

Being an online entrepreneur since 1998, I maintain steady set of clients who frequent my door for tips and suggestions.

I never turn them away without something useful and beneficial but the response over the period was not all that cheerful.

In spite of my strong advice to invest in easy liquidity options like gold and silver, some did not fancy, calling it very conservative.

But I am sad now to say that I had the last laugh. Now every investment news letter they have subscribed to, have been urging to invest in gold coins.

After all, buying gold has been recognized for centuries from the time of ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans to more modern times. The affinity for gold and silver has never diminished in the world history.

World demand for silver now exceeds annual production, and has every year since 1990 and now the U.S. Government itself is a silver buyer.

Let us heed to expert financial analysts’ opinion that silver, and specifically U.S. silver coins, presents an outstanding investment opportunity. Monex can be the automatic choice to buy precious metals coins abd bars.

Derive the joy from your effort.

I was reading a blog today that I thought I could write here a few lines about.

"Work is only as good as it’s enjoyed, not as it’s paid.” — L. Ron Hubbard (from The Problems of Work)

When you do what you love, your odds of success are much greater. You have more passion, more energy and more fun.

When you enjoy your job, you look forward to Monday mornings. Your days fly by. You make steady progress.

Work enjoyment is contagious. The people around you get along better. They follow your example and get more done.

I remember the following sentences in a book by ‘The Mother’
“When you want to realize something, you make a spontaneous effort. This concentrates your energies on the thing to be realized and that gives a meaning to your life.This gives you the power to receive energies in exchange for those you spend”.

Don’t you think this article is motivating?

The lion is dead.

Pahlan Ratanji Umrigar, died on 7 November 2006.

Popularly known as Polly Umrigar, he was an Indian middle order batsman and captain in Test cricket in a previous generation of cricket.

He was born on 28 March 1926 in Sholapur, Maharashtra, India
He belonged to a period where sportsmanship was the focus of every cricketer unlike the Aussies of today.

Polly Umrigar came from the Gujarati Parsi community that dominated the Bombay cricket in the early decades of the twentieth century. He made his first class debut at the age of 18 in the Bombay Pentangular in 1944.

Four years later, when he scored a majestic 115 not out for Combined Universities against the touring West Indians; he earned his test cap for India.

By the time two Commonwealth teams visited India in 1949-50 and 1950-51, Umrigar had become a regular in the team. He scored 276 runs in the unofficial Tests against the first team and 562 runs against the second.

Who can forget his two towering sixes off Frank Worrell in the Madras Test, that saw him move from 90 to 102.

My respectful homage to Polly Umrigar.

Do you know SMO?

In our search for new ways to generate traffic, we experiment as many strategies as we can; we never say ‘No’ to any method that we come across.

Today, I came stumbled upon a new term called ‘Social Media Optimization’ and when explored further I found it to be an article related internet traffic.

Under just three points (Get in, Fit in and Make friends), the article was very well written and well thought of.

The publisher Mr. T. L. Pakii Pierce is considered to be very knowledgeable in the Blogosphere.

Wonderful tips related to adsense.

I happen to read an interesting article entitled “Adsense Tweaking - It’s all in the Content” and find it refreshing and also very useful.

It seems the blogger has done his experiments before giving his valuable tips.

Generally I also read the comments about a blog post and here is one with an excellent suggestion:

“And if your blog is about tennis, it is better not to write include the word “blog” in your writing, as I am sure blog-related ads don’t pay well”.

Go ahead and read; if you like it, please share.

This microarchitecture is not to be confused with uarch.

While the term ‘uarch’ is used in computer engineering, orthopedecians will speak about Osteoporosis, which is a disease of bone in which the bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced; bone microarchitecture is disrupted, and the amount and variety of non-collagenous proteins in bone is altered.

A reduction in BMD is correlated with Estrogen deficiency following menopause.

Are you wondering what I am getting at? I am perturbed by a news about the victims of fosamax, which is a medicine manufactured by Merck to treat Osteoporosis.
