Your Social Skills Is Much More Important Than Pickup Skills!

Submitted by: Gabriel Angelo

I confess the reason for my greater struggle than most people when first learning how to improve my life with women and dating and hardly progressing was because I was missing the very foundation of social dynamics. None of the information ever dwelled on this basic, the core of everything…your innate social skills that set it off and build everything else.

I wasn’t just awful with girls but my undeveloped social skills made me horrendous at making friends and connections.

You see a lot of us didn’t grow up with the opportunity of learning how to socialize with others, and our lack of social skills transition over to making us terrible with women, so try learning pickup without this prerequisite groundwork is like learning how to run before walking.

It was not until I took a step back to realize this bigger picture was when everything began to fall into place at last.

Everything you do in dating and picking up and meeting women all are categorized within your social skills. Pickup skills is just only a small portion within your social skills.

If you have exceptional social skills, picking up women will naturally be effortlessly easy.

I would even break it down even more and say that the way I view it, is that are various identified sets of your collected social skills. For example, there are ones for when you are hanging with your guy buddies, interacting with your boss, and meeting women.

There are guys who are inseparable with their buddies who are always chilling and gaming away over Halo and watching Sunday night football and daily, and basically, always connecting like like an entourage when they go out, but are unskilled with women.

Then there are the corporate overachievers that seem to have every possession in their lives, people respect them at work, they’re always scoring every clients professionally (no pun intended) making that deal, and constantly getting promotions and bonuses, and without doubts, have everything going for them in their professional lives, but they are very unfulfilled and unskilled when it comes to creating their personal connections away from the work.

And then there are guys who are masters at interacting up the ladies, but they are akward with their family, colleague, and co-workers, and don’t have real friends because being the one-dimensional pickup artist is the only sole reality they see themselves to do whatever is required to get the girl.

Being really good at one field oppose with each other. The reason is the social skill sets are completely different. It’s not a good thing to be successful in one aspect of your social life but fail at the other. Maintaining a delicated balance around you is extremely vital.

Don’t just be the shallow pickup artist and be oblivious other areas of your social lift. That will never live up to your full social potential.

Become aware on knowing the set of your social skills to apply with different kinds of people.

USPTO partially confirms validity of Amazon “1-click patent”

USPTO partially confirms validity of Amazon “1-click patent”

Tuesday, October 9, 2007

Today, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued an office action, which confirmed the patentability of claims 6 to 10 of the Amazon 1-Click patent, US 5,960,411. The patent examiner, however, rejected claims 1 to 5 and 11 to 15. Amazon now has up to six months to amend the rejected claims to overcome the examiner’s rejection, provide arguments to demonstrate that the examiner is in error and/or provide evidence to demonstrate the patentability of their claims. During this period, the entire patent is still considered valid under US patent law.

The USPTO is reconsidering the patentability of the claims due to a request for reexamination filed by New Zealander Peter Calveley. Mr. Calveley used internet archives to show that defunct company Digi Cash used a similar technique prior to Amazon. Despite costing a substantial sum of cash and requiring donations to prepare and file the request for reexamination, Calveley said he did it as a game and hopes that his success inspires others to play the same game.

“One Click” shopping is an ecommerce technique, which allows a customer to purchase products via the Internet without repeatedly entering personal information such as name and address. At the time it was introduced it eased the frustration of on-line shopping.

Amazon filed the patent application for 1-click shopping in early 1997 and was granted the patent in September 1999. 23 days later Amazon sued rival Barnes & Noble for alleged infringement by its “Express Lane” ordering which was introduced in 1998. In December 1999 Amazon won an interim injunction against Barnes & Noble but the USA Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit lifted this injunction in February 2001. The parties then settled their dispute for undisclosed terms. Amazon has since successfully licensed the technique to other e-sellers such as Apple.

Yahoo! snaps up Flickr

Yahoo! snaps up Flickr

Monday, March 21, 2005

Portal and search company Yahoo! has purchased Ludicorp Research and Development Ltd., the private corporation which owns the photo sharing site Flickr. The news was officially disclosed in a Sunday posting to the corporation’s staff blog and is credited to Caterina Fake, Flickr’s vice president of marketing and community. The posting announced the sale, but did not disclose details of the deal. In a report by Silicon.Com, Yahoo! spokeswoman Joanna Stevens confirmed the deal on Sunday but also did not disclose the terms.

Both Fake and Stevens said Flickr will remain independent. Stevens added that Flickr’s employees will relocate to the Yahoo! headquarters in Sunnyvale, California later this year.

Rumors of the sale have been circulating amongst bloggers for some time, though neither company would confirm or deny the rumored sale. Other rumors had Google or AOL as Flickr’s probable suitor.

Flickr allows users to upload pictures from their computers, digital cameras, or camera phones to a personal website where they can display them, engage in photo blogging and create photo albums. The graphics may be licensed under a variety copyright license schemes including public domain, and photo owners can be easily contacted through the website.

Yahoo! had earlier announced Yahoo! 360°, a blogging service with sharing privileges and integration with other Yahoo! services such as internet broadcasting and instant messaging.

Aspergers &Amp; Susan Boyle: How Can Fish Oil Reduce The Effects?

Aspergers & Susan Boyle: How Can Fish Oil Reduce The Effects?


Edward A. Larsyn

Over night singing sensation, Susan Boyle, has actually exposed that she was diagnosed with Asperger\’s syndrome, a high-functioning type of autism, in 2012.

After receiving a different diagnosis as a kid, Boyle looked for a Scottish professional because she thought there was something more to the initial diagnosis.

\”I was told I had brain damage. I always knew it was an unfair label,\” she said. \”Now I have a clearer understanding of what\’s wrong and I feel relieved and a bit more relaxed about myself.\”

Boyle\’s Asperger\’s diagnosis has actually raised a lot of focus on the developmental disorder, which the U.S. National Institutes of Health identifies as a type of autism that is identified by inadequate social skills, physical clumsiness, and narrowly focused interests.

What if there was a way to lower the impacts connected with Asperger\’s syndrome?

This is the question posed by John W. Collins, Co-Founder and President of PacificCoast NutriLabs, a leading nutritional supplements company based in Santa Monica.

\”If we could improve the lives of children that are diagnosed with Asperger\’s at an early age by improving their language development and learning skills even to the slightest degree, I think that would be very significant.\” Collins mentioned.

Collins is describing the results of a medical trial that was assembled by two American researchers, Louise Patrick, SLP, and Ronald M. Salik, MD. The researchers carried out an open-label study, the Patrick-Salik trial, that involved children aged 3-10 years who had been diagnosed with autism or Asperger\’s syndrome by a pediatric neurologist or certified pediatric professional.

In the medical trial, the researchers administered a fish oil supplement, which provides essential fatty acids that are essential for brain wellness, to the group of 18 children that are diagnosed with autism or Asperger\’s syndrome for a duration of 90 days.

Over the 90-day duration the children were measured against 49 developmental items from the Assessment of Basis Language and Learning Skills (ABLLS) to evaluate 8 main areas of language and learning.

The results of the medical trial verified that all of the children showed substantial increases in their language and learning skills based upon the ABLLS.

\”This is very exciting news. And, it\’s one of the primary reasons as to why we\’ve worked very hard to provide a product that delivers a high potency of essential fatty acids in our PLATINUM Series Fish Oil Omega 3.\” Collins said.

Collins noted, \”Although there was significant results achieved with the trial, it\’s important to note that the purity of essential fatty acids of the supplement is key to achieving results.\”

Mother and son disappear after court orders cancer treatment

Mother and son disappear after court orders cancer treatment
September 22nd, 2016 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Thursday, May 21, 2009

On Tuesday, Minnesota’s Brown County District Judge John Rodenberg ordered chemotherapy for Daniel Hauser. He also issued the felony warrant for the arrest of Colleen Hauser, Daniel’s mother. The judge said Daniel should be cared for in a foster home because the parents, Colleen and Anthony Hauser, medically neglected their son by refusing chemotherapy after only one treatment.

Sheriff Rich Hoffman said that there was a country-wide search across America for Colleen Hauser and her thirteen-year-old son Daniel who has Hodgkin’s lymphoma after the pair fled a court order for chemotherapy.

The father, Anthony Hauser, told the press on Wednesday that mother and son left their home near Sleepy Eye without telling him where they were going. He also has not heard from them.

“If he’s being cared for, and it’s going to help him, I think it’s going to be a good thing,” Anthony Hauser said.

On Monday, an x-ray showed that the tumor is growing. The mother had been treating the cancer with herbal supplements, vitamins, ionized water and other natural alternatives from an internet regime. Colleen wanted to follow the native American Indian healing practices of the Nemenhah Band.

“He had basically gotten back all the trouble he had in January,” said James Joyce, the family doctor.

The court proceedings revealed that Hodgkin’s lymphoma is 90% curable with chemotherapy and radiation.

“I know people around here who’ve had chemo twice and they’re great. And I’m not saying alternative medicine is going to cure you every time.” said Anthony Hauser who appeared Tuesday in court by himself.

“Running away when there is a court order is not the way to handle it. Go home. That’s the official position of the church. Go home Colleen,” said Chief Medicine Man Phillip “Cloudpiler” Landis of the Nemenhah Band, “it can’t be good for Daniel’s health.”

Landis claims to have previously cured his own cancer by administering himself with the Chaga Mushroom. He feels that Colleen and Daniel have taken it upon themselves without approval of the court to seek advice of an Oncologist in Mexico.

Billy Best, a man who fled chemotherapy as a teenager in 1994 and claims to have cured his cancer with natural remedies, supports the Hausers’ decision.

“I just want to help this kid. I just feel like people are ganging up on him and it’s not fair. He’s a nice kid, the family’s nice, and they love him, and they want him to live,” Best said.

The police alert sent around the country said that Colleen and Daniel Hauser might be with Billy Best.

Royal Commission recommends single council for Auckland

Royal Commission recommends single council for Auckland
September 22nd, 2016 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Friday, March 27, 2009

The Royal Commission on Auckland Governance has recommended that Auckland, New Zealand’s existing local governments be abolished and replaced with a single body.

The eight existing local bodies — the Auckland Regional Council, Auckland City, Manukau City, Waitakere City, North Shore City, Papakura District, Rodney District and Franklin District — would be abolished. They would be replaced by a single Auckland Council responsible for air, water, waste, transport, planning and services, supplemented by six local councils responsible for service delivery. The eight existing mayors would be replaced by a single directly elected Mayor of Auckland, with additional powers to function in a more executive role.

Local Government Minister Rodney Hide welcomed the release of the report, calling it “an important matter for Auckland”, but he expressed concern about the democracy of the proposal. “I have some concerns about whether the report provides for adequate local representation in our many diverse communities, and I want to look more closely at this issue,” he said.

The government will now consider the report. They are expected to respond within two weeks.

The Royal Commission on Auckland Governance was established in 2007 to produce a plan to reform Auckland’s local government to improve economic growth and service delivery in the region. It received over 3,500 written submissions and heard from over 550 individual submitters.

Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city.

Two life boats were empty, one person is dead and sixteen others are missing after a helicopter crashed into the frigid north Atlantic Ocean reported search and rescue official, March 12. The Sikorsky S92 helicopter sunk below the surface and the debris field was located about 47 nautical miles (87 km; 54 mi) southeast of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.

Maydays and alerts were sent at 9:18 local NL time (7:48 EST). The helicopter pilot radioed his intent to return to St. John’s.

The lone survivor, Robert Decker, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. He was rescued by a helicopter which arrived 45 minutes after take off.

Of the eighteen people on board one other body was found and taken to St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. The cause of the crash is under investigation, but Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper called the incident a “tragic accident”. Julie Leroux of the Transportation Safety Board said that mechanical problems were reported on the helicopter, but further investigation was needed.

Earlier reports stated that two people and a life raft were seen in the waters 87 kilometers (54 miles) southeast of St. John’s. There were reports of a second life raft as well. Rescuers soon discovered that the life rafts were empty.

For those wearing survival suits, the survival time would be approximately 24 hours. Wave heights at the time of the crash were six to nine feet (two to three meters), with freezing water temperatures. As a result, emergency rooms at St. John’s hospital were prepared for survivors suffering from hypothermia reported Deborah Collins of the Eastern Health Board.

On board were workers heading to two offshore oilfields, mainly the Sea Rose platform, a part of the White Rose offshore oilfield 315 kilometers (196 miles) southeast of St. John’s. Two people on board were staff of Cougar Helicopters, and two passengers traveling to the Hibernia platform.

Two Cormorant rescue helicopters and one military Hercules plane flew into high winds during the rescue effort. The search and rescue team was supplemented by a coast guard ship and supply ship. There were reports that two other helicopters were dispatched as well.

How An Inventory Management System Can Help You Protect Your Valuable Assets?}

September 19th, 2016 in Hardware | No Comments

Submitted by: Alvares Crown

The worth of a good inventory management system for efficiently managing the stock inventory of an organization needs no explanation. But, very few people know that besides helping the companies in maintaining an optimum stock level and efficiently handling their available stock, inventory management solution can also help them in protecting their valuable assets. Such assets can be companys critical business information, costly equipment, licensing agreement, and system upgrades. In this article, we will explore so of the key ways in which you can use an inventory management system for protecting these valuable assets.

With the radically increasing mobility requirements of modern businesses, warehouse managers and business owners are required to travel frequently to fulfil their business responsibilities. As such, desktop based inventory management solutions are no longer appropriate for them. Fortunately, the soaring popularity of smartphones and tablets, and the availability of robust & user-friendly inventory management apps for such devices have helped a lot in resolving the mobility issues of such users. Such apps are readily available for Android and iOS devices, enabling the users to get the real-time access to key warehouse data, whenever they need and from wherever they might be.

1. Information protection: Inventory management systems not only help in keeping track of the company’s hardware resources, but they also help in efficiently tracking the company’s software resources. It keeps a strict vigil on the people who have access to key software applications and sensitive business information. As such, the inventory management system can easily show you who is accessing the system and what files he/she is downloading. Hence, you can check any unauthorised access or download, and prevent information theft.

2. Equipment protection: An automatic warehouse management system besides tracking each and every inventory item in the warehouse can also be used to track the location of costly equipment in the organization. As such, all the information about its change in location can be automatically updated in the database; hence, eliminating any chances of the equipment being stolen. Besides preventing the mysterious disappearance or theft of equipment, the system can also track the working condition of such equipment, giving you information about their service or maintenance history.

3. Licensing agreements: Often business owners and managers in their strict schedule can forget to fulfil their licensing agreement requirements, which may result into fines and usage fees upon license expiry. With a good inventory management system, one can automate the software and licensing agreements of the organization. This will send automatic alert to the business owner or manager upon the nearing of the license expiry time, so that he/she can renew the license within time, and save him from unnecessary fines or hassles.

4. System upgrades: Out-dated software and hardware can cost your business dearly; it can lead to loss of productive time, money, and resources. Moreover, slow response and downtime can also become potential killers in today’s highly competitive business environment. With a good inventory management system, you can set filters for hardware and software assets of the company so that automatic alerts can be generated anytime a newer software or hardware is available in the market, This will not only keep you updated with the latest technology but also ensure that your business has the latest state-of-the-art software and hardware resources, ensuring that your organization runs as smoothly & efficiently as possible.

Distributed computing to get “interstellar project”

Distributed computing to get “interstellar project”
September 19th, 2016 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Friday, January 13, 2006

NASA is awaiting the arrival of very precious cargo from space.

The Stardust Spacecraft is scheduled to land at around 5:12am (eastern time) on Sunday January 15, 2006. Onboard are dust particles that have been collected from the comet Wild 2.

When the capsule gets to Earth and enters the atmosphere, at about 5am (eastern time), it is expected to put on quite a light show for folks in Northern California, Oregon, Nevada, and Utah. The capsule will look much like a shooting star going across the sky. The capsule will be traveling at about 12.8 km or 8 miles per second, fast enough to go from San Francisco to Los Angeles in one minute. Stardust will set a new all-time record for being the fastest spacecraft to return to Earth, breaking the previous record set in May of 1969 during the return of the Apollo X command module. “It will move over the west coast of northern California and will light the sky from California through central Oregon and on through Nevada and Idaho and into Utah,” Tom Duxbury, Stardust’s project manager said.

The capsule will then release a parachute approximately 32 km (105,000 feet) and descend into the Salt Flats of Utah. If weather is permitting, it will be recovered by helicopter teams and taken to a cleanroom at the Michael Army Air Field, Dugway Proving Ground, for initial processing.

The capsule itself, only weighs 45.7 kilograms (101 pounds) and resembles a mini Apollo capsule.

Not only will it break the record for the fastest spacecraft to return to earth, Stardust Principal Investigator Don Brownlee of the University of Washington, Seattle, says “We are nearing the end of quite a fantastic voyage – our spacecraft has traveled further than anything from Earth ever has – and come back. He also added that “We went half-way to Jupiter to meet the comet and collect samples from it. But the comet actually came in from the outer edge of the solar system, out beyond the orbit of Neptune, out by Pluto.”

If the capsule makes it safely back to earth, scientists hope to unlock many secrets about the formation of our universe.

“Locked within the cometary particles is unique chemical and physical information that could be the record of the formation of the planets and the materials from which they were made,” said Dr. Don Brownlee, Stardust principal investigator at the University of Washington, Seattle.

“Comets are some of the most informative occupants of the solar system. The more we can learn from science exploration missions like Stardust, the more we can prepare for human exploration to the moon, Mars and beyond,” said Dr. Mary Cleave, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate.

Stardust is bringing back the first samples of contemporary interstellar dust ever collected, and is also the first mission to return samples from a comet, as well as the first sample return mission from the Galaxy. Not one grain of contemporary interstellar dust grain has ever been examined in a laboratory before.

“We think a significant fraction of comets will be stardust particles actually older than Earth and older than the Sun, and for drama the stars, and the way you identify those is by their isotopic ratios,” Stardust Principal Investigator Don Brownlee said. “There are fabulous tools now to analyze these and a very anxious group of scientists waiting for these samples.”

Stardust’s main mission was to capture dust particles from comet Wild 2, but it is also believed to have captured dust from distant stars, perhaps created in supernova explosions less than 10 million years ago.

The dust can only be found using using a high-magnification microscope with a field of view smaller than a grain of salt.

But now they have the difficult task of trying to find all these millions of particles, which takes more time and man power that NASA has. That’s where NASA decided to try Distributed Computing.

Distributed computing has been a huge success. Most of the credit of the success of distributed computing, can be given to the scientists at the University of California, Berkeley. Scientists there have had and continue to have huge success with a program they created called SETI@home, which now uses the distributing platform BOINC.

With the success of BOINC and other distributed computing platforms, NASA hopes to achieve its goal in half the time with the public’s help by creating the project Stardust@home

“Like SETI@home, which is the world’s largest computer, we hope Stardust@home will also be a large computer, though more of a neural network, using brains together to find these grains,” said Bryan Mendez of the Center for Science Education at the Space Sciences Laboratory.

But, the project is not for everyone. First, you will go through a web-based training session and then you must pass a test to qualify to register and participate. In the test, the volunteer is asked to find the track in a few test samples. To judge the reliability of the user, they also plan to throw in some ringers with and without tracks.

If at least two of the four volunteers viewing each image report a track, that image will be fed to 100 more volunteers for verification. If at least 20 of these report a track, UC Berkeley undergraduates who are expert at spotting dust grain tracks will confirm the identification.

After passing the test and registering, you will be able to download a virtual microscope (VM). The VM will automatically connect to their server and download so-called “focus movies” — stacks of images that we will collect from the Stardust Interstellar Dust Collector using an automated microscope at the Cosmic Dust Lab at Johnson Space Center. The VM will work on your computer, under your control. You will search each field for interstellar dust impacts by focusing up and down with a focus control.

The other neat thing is that there are no limitations and the more images you examine, the better chance you have at finding an interstellar dust grain.

Any interstellar dust particles that you find, then you will appear as a co-author on any scientific paper by the Stardust@home collaboration announcing the discovery of the particle.

Currently the project is only accepting pre-registration and will be available to the public in mid-March, even before all the scans have been completed in a cleanroom at Houston’s Johnson Space Center. In all the project is expected to need at least 30,000 person hours, to go through all the images, at least 4 times by 4 different participants.

Berkeley will host and maintain the project, but it is unlcear as to whether or not the project will use the BOINC platform.

The virtual microscope was developed by computer scientist David Anderson, director of the SETI@home project, along with physics graduate student Joshua Von Korff.

The Stardust spacecraft was launched on February 7, 1999, from Cape Canaveral Air Station, Florida, aboard a Delta II rocket.

The Stardust project is expected to cost $170-million-dollars with a journey that will have lasted over 7 years and actually went around the Sun three times, and “back in time to 4.5 billion years in time to gather these primitive samples that just were released from a comet’s nucleus,” Duxbury later added.
