Whewwwwwww.. This is hot hot hot…. Weapons free status !!
"Everything to the west is weapons free," radios Staff Sgt. Sam Mortimer of Seattle, Washington. Weapons Free means the marines can shoot whatever they see -- it's all considered hostile.
This levity continues until the Marines turn the corner onto a main street they've tactically dubbed, "Elizabeth."
Despite the constant weapons fire and explosion that have accompanied our advance -- this one is different -- it's directed at the Marines. As a squad from India Company passes by a way with a spray painted rocket propelled grenade launcher -- a real RPG round explodes against it. One Marines' face is burned by the powder and hot gas -- another has caught shrapnel in the leg, a third has been shot in the finger by the small arms fire that followed. The Marines are outraged. They turn their M-16's on the building to the west where they believe the shooter is hiding. But that's just an appetizer.

(As of this writing, more then 9000 have have contributed money toward the ad campaign.)

Platypuses are famous for laying eggs yet producing milk, having a bird-like bill and a skeleton with reptilian features. Now it turns out that the mammal has an equally eye-catching way of deciding its sex, according to a study by Frank Grützner and Jenny Graves at the Australian National University in Canberra, and colleagues.
In most mammals, including humans, sex is decided by the X and Y chromosomes: two Xs create a female, while XY creates a male. In birds, the system is similar: ZW makes for a female, while ZZ makes for a male.
But in platypuses, XXXXXXXXXX creates a female, while XYXYXYXYXY creates a male. In other words, rather than a single chromosome pair, platypuses have ten-chromosome chains that determine their sex. "
Eh ??? Then the odds are that they are more advanced then the human species !!!!!

GPS units help to track rental cars, Alzheimer’s patients, wandering children, wandering cattle, wandering fur coats.

But just as drug dealers appropriated beepers and terrorists the Internet, these technologies and more are being embraced by a new breed of high-tech stalker.

This week's - 1 Minute Strategies:
* Don't avoid introducing someone just because you forget his or her name. Admit - and apologize for - your poor memory. "I so enjoyed talking with you at last month's conference. I can't believe your name is escaping me right now, when I want you to meet my colleague, Jane Gibson. I'm so sorry." Then, repeat the name aloud, to show that you're making an effort to remember it this time. And if someone neglects to introduce you to another person, step forward, extend your hand and do it yourself.
* Don't appear disorganized. When working as part of a team, determine who will deliver information to the boss ….. and who won't. Example: Will the person gathering training-cost estimates present them to the boss, or will the team leader do it?

Just got of the Lightening Investor CNF Concall. Some the question from investors and answers (described as my thought flick'r) !!!
What is the risk management strategy for synergy cohesiveness for Sales& Market and how will the gains be used for new business strategy ?
Proceeds not to be used for aqusition but will be used to merger costs. These costs will be leveled out in 2005 and effects will be approx a penny a share!!
What happens to the remaining 2 business Units. Will there be cost cutting and plan to create a synergy for collobration of these units under one umberalla.
Yes, we will rightsize to move all units under a single folio. Global Solutions is the projected way for the current folio!!
Was the logistcs pices on the table as part of the deal ?? Were options were on the table ??
Aquistion team opted for various pieces.
What is the MWW head count that will be transfered to UPS ?
All head counts will go to UPS.
How does the Depreciation leveling look like once the complete transfer has occured ?
About 2or 3 cent costs per Quarter. No offset at current projections.
Commitment for tendering or calling for debt ratio and what is the credit rating standings ?
Postive comments from credit rates. Covenent with the Banks is in good standing. No degradtion to investment grading. Debt instruments is being used for leverage of Cash accruals (130Millon).
Timing for closure of Transaction
3 jurisdication needs to be looked. Transaction closure slotted for end of Q4/04.
Outsourcing contracts for MWW. Do these Outsourcing go with transaction ??
They go with the Transaction to UPS.
Tradelines that being given up to UPS. How much was market segmentation.
1/3 is import, 1/3 is exports and approx 1/3 never touched the US.
CNF is moving towards a consolidated Global Logistics player. The merger of Conway, Menlo Logistics, Vector SCM will formulate leaner organization, which will prove higher investment rations. CNF's strategy looks firm. Growth factoring looks ripe. time will tell !!!!
UPS's strategy should be based on assimliation with a "new wave culture" theory, to sustain vision of Broader Supply Chain Initatives to enable Global Commerce.
The service provided by the Electronic Commerce Unit will continue 7/24, but, with very limited resources. We will, therefore, have to suspend some activities to accommodate urgent production matters. For example, client testing and the addition of new profiles will not occur during strike days.
We will update our hotline message as the need arises to advise if/when the ECU has scaled back service. We regret the inconvenience that this may cause you and we thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

"You can't go wrong in computer science.It is a little scary for me to see people thinking of this as a zero-sum game. It is not like a war where you have one winner and one loser," Gates said. "China and India are the big change engines for the years ahead, and as we embrace that and understand our new role in that".
Yeah, who's God Given Americans right is it, to think, that they are the only ones who can leverage knowledge to humanity ??

Ultimately, innovation is about continually pushing back the boundaries of what is possible. The true genius of capitalism is that it provides economic incentives for sustained innovation.

* Slow them down on voice mail. In the rush to leave a voice mail message, people often jumble their words. One word from you - "slowly" - reminds callers to speak carefully. Example: " Please leave a clear message and slowly say your phone number so that I can return your call."
* 3 easy ways to reduce computer eyestrain.
1. Position papers the same distance away as your monitor, so your eyes don't constantly refocus.
2. If you forget to blink while concentrating, keep artificial "tears" handy to lubricate your eyes.
3. Clean the screen.
What is the primary motive behind this ?? Are they saying that too much hacking going on from these public booths ??

It's apparently okay for RFID tag promoters to watch you apply lipstick from 750 miles away, but not for a privacy advocate to keep an eye on companies using the pesky technology
To date, Wal-Mart and the U.S. Department of Defense have been among the most vocal backers of the technology.
"Nortel plans to lay off 3,250 employees" -Brampton, Ontario, company also will eliminate about 650 positions in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and 250 elsewhere in the world
The disclosures came in a regular biweekly filing to the Ontario Securities Commission.
The work plan is expected to deliver cost savings of about $500 million in 2005 and greater savings in subsequent years, according to the filing. But it will also bring charges to Nortel's income statements of about $220 million for layoffs and $230 million for real estate. About 35 percent of those charges should be incurred in 2004 and the remainder in 2005, according to the company statement.
1,400 employees in the U.S. and about 950 in Canada, with those employees to be notified by the end of June 2005,
"Interest is high -- and business opportunities may be there for the picking -- but when it comes to figuring out how to apply RFID to their midmarket customers, solution providers remain largely on their own".
"Catcher in the rye"
As a result of ABC's effort, the Microsoft Business Solutions will include RFID support for upcoming versions of Axapta, Great Plains and Navision.
Sun RFID offering for Partners will be available in midOctober.

I was wacking off from free blog hosting to sftp hosting. Converted my defa settings. Setup ftp zone and pwd so that blogger can publish to sftp.
Shit happended. Rolled back to free hosting by blogger. Tried again!!
Mutliple Refusals on publication local to blogger. Got ftp error blah blah.. Got flustered, nearly deleted my blog. Then reset setting. Publication and reindexing worked. But blog entry not see on Previous post or appears.
Yet, I can see my entry indexed as well as accessible !! Any clue points ???
Current Schedule :5:45PM . Status : Strategy offerings
Next Schedule : 7.00PM . Status : Geek Dinner / Moblog'ing !!
I did not make my next schedule with the famour blogger from NYC !! Pity eh ?? My wisdom was in the office, but my heart was out there.. Me was dissapointed !!
So I ask myself, WHY dissapointment !!
Well I had this concept that I wanted to create spontues thought flickr'ing amongst the blog community. Throw a seed of thought, along with a single leased email, and then everyone sends in their thoughts. Now, each entry becomes a seperate blog and that creates a harverst of thoughts ...for the community...!!! Something like an orchestrated world thought flickr'ing!!
Geeeeee.. pretty wacky biz eh ?? How to do it, I dunna me is still a newbie !! Anyway, thats what I wanted to talk about. SO, caught up with this Idea, that I aquired this.
Randy, this is a topic for our geek dinner !! :)-

When you read this article and have a pulse on these markets. It become pretty simple, Those who adopt to RFID will be the winners. Those who don't will be assimilated.
I remember reading once, in MIT Lab's , a whole home was retro fitted with RFID equipement, including the test sbujecct's glasses. When the subject used special computer to search for his lost glasses, it spat back ."On couch, under the second cushion". The retro lab actually was able to ping the article, locate it, use raster methods of location and identify a corresponding article assoicated in proximity!!. A spanning B+ hashing algorthim, being piped into a raster algrothim, created 3 dimensional locational results.
Think pic-n-pac, product shelf life streaming for biz and Now imagine your home now like that ??
Speak to your watch !!
Update : RFIDv2.0 and RFIDV3.0
- Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921-1990), Swiss playwright
A good future is something you take part in creating - right now. But there are several ways of relating to the future, and that influences our desires regarding retirement. Our self-image is also important for our dispositions. This is talk about women and their future in the future !!
Take a look at this article from this think tank Inistute.
If they get this concept deployed, that, taking full advantage of the 20 terahertz would be easy in terms of sending 600 two-hour feature films in about one second. !!
Now just think, what fiber optics and the role that they may play in your home ??
Methinks that once ivp6 gets more used, then every darn thing in your home will be rfid and all you need is a watch on your wrist which is voice activated. Glasses on your nose to see just about any darn thing you wish to see !!

"And with 6.5 billion people to feed, I am reminded of a somewhat frightening quote that I’ll likely garble: “Throughout history, when humans are left between starvation and raiding, they raid.” What do you think?
Yeah what do you think, once oil runs out eh ??? Another doomsday scare ??
Now thats an eyeopener 35Cents/1$ back to the gov ??? Strange, If I look at it, we Canadian's give back approx 22% back to the government, get back health care and other benifits. What are the american society doing ?? Don't they think these thoughts ??
GoogleSphere is a conceptual framework of a virtual reality world. This Model is created, managed, policed, and defended by GoogleLites. GoogleLites are a community of real indivduals having a similar purpose and mission.
When I goggled , “GoogleSphere” and “GoogleLite” there returned only 228 and 10 pages found respectively. Wow!!! A very minor leverage factor in today's world of information age. Thus, this is a very new and exciting word, which needs to be assimilated under a just cause for humanity and like me, any other citizens of planet earth.
Let me begin my testament, now!
Metcalfe’s Law states, "The value of network increases as the square of the number of users on the network." This, too me means, if I know a single strand of thought, the power of that thought is only 1. However if 2 people know it, then it become 4 and thereon. The Math’s are simple, no brainer teaser. So, I need to get others onto this framework of thought.
However, with all this spill, comes the headache. “You cannot solve the problem with the same kind of thinking that has created the problem." -Albert Einstein. We need to change our thinking. Will this single thought flickr’, prove that as a joint level effort amongst fellow like minded community can raise the torch and that we (Googlelites) continue to pass the baton !!
Why the need for an Evangelical mission ? “You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction." -Alvin Toffler. So follow cybernuat’s, Bloggers, gmailer’s, googler’s and people who really believe that a mental world of a GoogleSphere, is the best for humanity, spread the word. Spit a comment here, email this blog. I really want to know what you think.
Let me end my postulation with this observation from the recent games. “In the Men’s 100m Final, four athletes finished in less than 9.90 seconds, but it was USA’s Justin GATLIN who won gold medal with 9.85”- Athens2004, Day 9. Aug.22/04.
We, Googlelites, do not intend to aspire to be on a podium as #1. However, we all wish to behind by that .05 ornano second difference for the sake HumanityV2.0, correct ??.
So how do we, either confirm or denies this postulate ?
The rules of engagement – This I believe statement
TIB#1 : If you believe for good, then you believe in GoogleSpherev1.0. Spit your thoughts out here or send me an email. Metcalfe’s law is being tested.
TIB#2 : If you believe in being a Googlelite, then do just 1 thing to reinforce TIB#1 for the United Federation for GoogleSphereV1.0
TIB#3: If you truly believe in changing the world, try this evangelical mission.
The race begins for Humanity2.0 !!!
This postulate is dedicated too;
Chris, a fellow “Googlelite”, (I don’t know), but the breed we apprecaite. The type of nerd, who has, that very high and distinct ethics, which will not permit him to place gmail invites on ebay !!
And for TomPeters, another “Googlilite”, whose blogs are witty and filled with thought provocation. Tom, I snitched a couple of your saying, on this round.
Thank you in advance for taking the baton !!
