My Nephew Alexander Needs Your Help To Raise $ For Cancer !

The Blogger says...

"Cancer has taken my mother and my younger sister and it seems that every family is hit by this dreaded disease. Take some of those gains in the market in the last 10 weeks and help Cancer be beaten!

Alexander is my nephew, he is proof that Cancer can be beaten. Please make a small pledge to help him reach his goal this year!"






I am a survivor of acute lymphocytic leukemia. I was diagnosed with cancer when I was 2 1/2 and fought for 3 full years. I am now 16 and I have seen the reaches of cancer. It does not target the young or the old, the poor or the rich. It targets so many different people.

It's targeted my friends and family. I've seen it tear people apart leaving them in a state where you feel you could have no hope, but the thing is, as long as people are working and helping to find a cure there will always be hope.

Please pledge me and help make cancer history.

I am walking in this relay for people I love, people I miss, and people who I don't even know. To the people who have inspired me, thank you, now let's make cancer history!

Online pledging is secure and it saves the Society money by reducing administrative costs.

Thanks for your support!

Buy a Soldier a Coffee at Tims in Kandahar


To: TDL Group ( Tim Hortons Head Office)

I Started a group on facebook for Tim Hortons to have a Tim Hortons for the troops day where a portion of the proceeds will go to the troops overseas, either to use at the tim hortons there, or Tim hortons coffee to be sent over to them.

Let's see how much Timmies really cares. Lets see how many gunners and friends we can get on this thing. It's time to start a petition to the great Canadian Institution of Tim Horton's.

Now that they are located in Kandahar our troops can introduce the coalition to a Double Double. They say that drinking a coffee on a hot day is a great way to cool down but I don't know how true that is so maybe we can call this "Buy a Soldier an Ice cappuccino" group!

I think what would work best is for customers to donate 1.00 gift certificates and when its said and done they send all the gift certificates over to the troops and they can get whatever they wish. If a soldier chooses to have a coffee in 50 degree heat so be it lol, or they can get an ice cap, donut, muffin whatever they want.


Tim Hortons in Kandahar is hiring:

American Idol Voters Got It Wrong Again!


Kris Allen Crowned The New 'American Idol'

Kris appeared shocked as he learned the news, delivered by show host Ryan Seacrest, and he struggled to find words to express himself.

"Are you serious? Are you friggin' serious? It feels good man, but Adam deserves this. I'm sorry," Kris said as he looked around wide-eyed. "I don't even know what to feel right now. This is crazy. Thank you so much."

Just under 100 million votes -- a new world record according to "Idol" -- were cast on Tuesday night, but in the end, it was 23-year-old Kris Allen, from Conway, Arkansas who walked home with the title of the Season 8 "American Idol."

American Idol 2009 -- If I'm Being Honest-
Ken Levine

Wow! What an upset! Kris Allen won. The All-American fresh-faced boy next door beat a theatrical guy who wore leather and eyeliner. Who knew??? This country is not yet ready to crown a young man who looks like Liza Minnelli their next American Idol. Not that Kris didn't deserve it but clearly Adam was the more interesting, original choice. And I suspect will have the greater career (whatever that means). They could both be stars or in five years one could open for the other at Magic Mountain.

Still, it was Adam who jump-started the series. He's the one everybody was talking about, he's the reason you watched every week. My guess is all those tweenage girls who were so shattered last year when David Archeletta lost vowed they would never let that happen again. Hell hath no fury like a middle schooler with a Twitter account!

Of course the real winner here is American Idol. People will be talking about this for days.

Kris Allen crowned American Idol 2009

American Idol's dark horse contestant, Kris Allen, surprised everyone, including himself, by taking this year's American Idol trophy. "Adam should have won," Kris told Ryan when he was handed the trophy. He then promptly tried to push it over to Adam, and was instead cued to sing "No Boundaries." Kris seemed shocked as he stumbled around the stage, followed by the season's other twelve finalists.


Kris is the eighth winner of American Idol, following Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, and, most recently, David Cook. He is now guaranteed a recording contract with 19 records.

Kris and Adam are currently throwing their support behind each other. "Kris is a great guy and deserves nothing by the best," Adam said afterwards. "I'm totally happy for him."

When asked about Adam, Kris stated, "You can't compare us, we're totally different, but we have a great relationship. I'm rooting for him. I'll be there to buy his CD."

With close to 100 million votes coming in for this year's finale, both artists are guaranteed to have successful careers. They kick off with the American Idol tour this summer, stopping in 50 cities.

Paris France May 2009 - Vacation Was Great!




Huge cloud of balloons marks Eiffel Tower birthday

PARIS (AP) — More than a thousand balloons released to mark the Eiffel Tower's 120th birthday have dotted the Paris sky and turned the heads of tourists waiting to visit the monument.

The most instantly recognizable symbol of Paris was inaugurated May 19, 1889. Since then, it has become one of the world's most visited tourist sites.

The Eiffel Tower receives 18,000 visitors per day, or nearly 7 million a year. Those lucky enough to visit Tuesday were treated to a special show.

The multicolored medley of balloons swirled around the slim steel structure designed by Gustave Eiffel before wafting lazily across the Paris skyline.

A new exhibit, "Tales of the Eiffel Tower," which tells the story of the tower with photos, posters and illustrations, opened last week.

A checklist for energy con tactics - Door To Door Sellers Tricks


TheStar.com - Business - A checklist for energy con tactics
May 10, 2009
Ellen Roseman

Ontario isn't doing enough to protect consumers from deceptive tactics used by door-to-door energy sellers.

The province opened its doors to competition in natural gas in 1997 and to electricity in 2002.

Today, there's an army of agents cajoling, pushing and often tricking you into buying a long-term contract for your energy supply.

If you say yes at the door – and later on the phone when the company calls to confirm – you will be locked into a fixed price that may be far higher than the local utility's rate. To get out before the contract expires, you will have to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars to win your release.

Ontario tried to jump-start energy competition, but ignored the way that competitors built their market share, says Michael Janigan, executive director of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre.

"The benefits associated with having this stuff going on are dwarfed by the problems associated with it," he says.

The Ontario Energy Board is falling behind on the job of policing the conduct of energy sellers.

The board received 2,126 complaints about marketers in the first quarter of this year – up from a quarterly average of 1,500 last year – but rarely lays charges.

It fined two retailers this year for failing to follow market rules. This was the first penalty since 2003.

Last week, it ordered Direct Energy Marketing Ltd. to pay $15,000 for misrepresentation exposed in a hidden camera investigation by CBC's Marketplace.

The abuses should have abated soon after Ontario's energy market was opened to choice. Instead, they're getting worse. It's time for the government to act.

A private member's bill by Liberal MPP David Ramsay passed second reading, but is stalled in the Legislature until next fall.

So, what would I propose? Here's a checklist.

• Drop the rule that marketers must call customers 10 days to two months after an agent's visit to reaffirm the purchase. This is too late to be effective.

• Set up a third-party verification system, such as exists in British Columbia for gas sales, where an independent company calls people the same day an agent comes to their home.

• Write a standard script for all verification calls. Make sure customers understand who they're dealing with and the terms of the deal, including the cancellation penalties.

• Don't allow agents to carry anything that has the name or logo of a utility (such as Enbridge Gas or Toronto Hydro). This helps create false impressions about their identity.

• Ban the use of terms such as savings, low prices or guarantees. The only thing that marketers can promise is a stable price.

• Let customers cancel once they see what they're paying. Give them the legal right to opt out of a contract within 30 days of receiving their first bill at the new rate.

• Eliminate automatic renewals of gas contracts for one year if customers don't cancel in writing before the expiry date. Allow contracts to be renewed on a month-to-month basis at the existing price, not a higher price.

• Stop letting marketers recruit each other's customers mid-contract. This leads to confusion and two sets of cancellation penalties. Deals signed at the door should be void if the customer is already bound to another company.

BIM Pyramid Scheme To Take $3200.00 From You!




How to recognize a pyramid scheme

Who doesn't want to make more money these days? An economic crunch combined with massive layoffs make money schemes all the more tempting. But if profits rely on recruiting others, you could be part of a pyramid scheme, which is illegal in Canada.

Here are some pointers on how to spot a pyramid scheme:

Arrow The scheme is promoted word of mouth or through closed door meetings. Beware of promises of extremely high commissions.

Arrow Products associated with pyramid schemes often have little real value and it is difficult for the average consumer to determine their actual worth.

Arrow Consider if there is a true market for the product and if it is actually being sold to people outside of the scheme. If not the name of the game is likely recruiting.

Arrow To survive, pyramid schemes rely on a continuous inflow of new recruits. But basic math shows they will eventually collapse.

Arrow Be skeptical about testimonials about the product or the plan. The company may be paying individuals to give testimonials or may have strategically ensured their success in the business.

The system is designed to recognize what’s beyond human power to change, and then to change the human’s attitude to be content with the inevitable."

Premier: Dalton McGuinty (Liberal) Needs To Hear From You!


As a concerned taxpayer I feel it is important to have you all understand what the new HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) or "blended tax" means to Ontarian's.

It amazes me that this announcement has slipped by without a ripple, and yet when I tell people about the impact to them they are all shocked.

The intended purpose is to blend the GST and the PST into one tax.. This will cut down the paperwork burden for Ontario businesses and, in theory, lessen staff by merging both departments. This could be a noble attempt to cut costs. There is just one problem. Rather than just blending the products and services that now charge both taxes, the provincial government has decided that it will apply this new tax to almost all goods and services that you do not pay PST on now!

You are about to become the victim of the largest tax hike in our history.

How will this affect you? Let's start with just a few things that are to be charged the extra 8% and see if it will affect you or your family.

Gasoline

Home heating fuel

Water

Hydro

Used cars

Government and city services

Real Estate Fees - if you think 5 or 6% is bad, just watch the market decline further when people now pay PST + GST

Any service you now use for your home or business such as repairs, professional services of any kind, construction materials etc.

These are just a few.

See this article about how the $1000.00 BRIBE they are offering will not even cover ½ of the increased cost to the average family.


This tax hits Ontarians hard, but ESPECIALLY the low income ones! They will have an 8% increase in everyday life, and yet you will not see their benefits or salaries rise.

http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/269917

Actually almost everything currently without PST in your life - except child's clothing, prescriptions, diapers, and feminine hygiene products - will now cost you 8% more. Oh and here is a kicker. The fuel tax will slide with the increasing cost of that fuel.

Our premier is counting on taxpayers to do what they always do when a new tax is added.Nothing! It is very important that you start to research and discuss this with your friends and family. It is not too late to stop this if you are willing to do something as send an email to the premier asking him either to a) stop the tax grab all together or b) do what was originally intended and blend the tax on the products that now have both taxes and not to extend the new tax to everything else. If you just sit there remember you lose the right to complain about taxes ever again. Get UP and start telling everyone about this injustice and we can stop this today. Don't think your email will not count. When most MP's get more than 10 emails, they consider it a catastrophe!

Send your objection to:

If you do nothing, you lose your right to complain.

NO TO THE HST 8% TAX INCREASE!

Premier, Dalton McGuinty, wants to bring a HST tax to Ontario. This will cost you 8% more on food, clothes, services, almost everything else.

Here is what the new HST or 'blended tax' means to Ontarian's: The intended purpose is to blend the GST and the PST into one tax. This will cut down the paperwork burden for Ontario businesses and, in theory, lessen staff by merging both departments.

There is just one problem. Rather than just blending the products and services that now charge both taxes, the provincial government has decided that it will apply this new tax to almost all goods and services that you do not pay PST on now! We are about to become the victim of the largest tax hike in Ontario's history.
How will this affect us?

* We will be charged an extra 8% on things like:.
o Gasoline
o Home heating fuel
o Water
o Hydro
o Used cars
o And many other services, (getting your taxes done, any professional services)
o As a bonus the fuel tax will slide with the increasing cost of that fuel.

WHAT ABOUT THE REBATE / BRIBE?

* See this article about how the $1000.00 bribe they are offering will not even cover ½ of the increased cost to the average family.
* Everything currently without PST in your life except children's clothing, prescriptions, diapers, and feminine hygiene products will now cost you 8% more.

The premier of Ontario is counting on taxpayers to do what they always do when a new tax is added. Nothing! It is very important that you start to research and discuss this with your friends and family. It is not too late to stop this!
WHAT WE CAN DO TO STOP THIS!

Get UP and start telling everyone about this injustice and we can stop this today. Don't think your email will not count. Most MP's, if they get 10 emails, they consider it a catastrophe! If you can't decide what to write copy and paste this into your email.

Dear Member of Parliament
I am angry that you are going to raise taxes 8% as you introduce the HST. I demand that this largest tax raise in Ontario history be removed immediately. Our economy is already in trouble and raising taxes by 8% will only make this worse. It will also make Ontario a bad place for businesses. If you pass this tax increase you can be assured you will NOT get my vote in the next election.

Sincerely,


1. PASS THIS ON - SHOW YOU OBJECT- IT TAKES ONE MINUTE
Send your objection to: www.premier.gov.on.ca/feedback/feedback.asp

Remember your spiritual side

Remember your spiritual side

"The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays."

-- Soren Kierkegaard

Reminding ourselves often of our spiritual natures truly changes the quality of our lives. It helps us relax, slow down, lighten up, and generally find more space and joy in life.

When we get down on ourselves or life, we can pull back and ask, "How might my soul regard this situation? What am I being invited to experience?"

This shift in perspective helps us let go of the resistance that always comes with negativity. As energy once again begins to flow, our outlook brightens.

"Spirituality is the sacred center out of which all life comes, including Mondays and Tuesdays and rainy Saturday afternoons in all their mundane and glorious detail. ... The spiritual journey is the soul's life commingling with ordinary life."

-- Christina Baldwin

"It is not my business to think about myself. My business is to think about God. It is for God to think about me."

Too much media hype no evidence of the swine flu virus spreading



There is no evidence of the swine flu virus spreading in a sustained way outside North America, a top World Health Organization official says.

http://www.who.int/en/

Symptoms of swine and seasonal flu include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue.

The virus breeds in tissues of the respiratory tract, not on the skin however warm and damp it may get. Surgical masks, as seem to be handed out in Mexico, are designed to prevent transmission of disease rather than prevent its acquisition. Masks will certainly become less effective as they become damp and more porous, so masks would have to be changed several times per day to be of any value. The UK government has not stockpiled masks as part of its pandemic preparedness plan, although there have been reports of the government now ordering supplies of masks.

Can you really libel someone in 140 characters or less? Tweeter!


Tweet this: You're being sued

Garry Marr, Financial Post Published: Friday, May 01, 2009

Can you really libel someone in 140 characters or less?

The short answer, you could quickly tweet, is yes. The first libel suit against a Twitter user was launched in March, in the United States. It joins a growing class of suits against bloggers, message-board posters and social network users.

The message is, there is nowhere to hide if you've posted something that is defamatory or has infringed on somebody's copyright. Worse, you could end up personally liable for millions of dollars - a trend that may force consumers to think about buying liability insurance to protect them from their online words.

"I think many people are unaware of the risks they are taking," says Amy Denise, editor of insure.com. "It's just so easy to get angry and lose control of what you say on the Internet."

In the case of the first lawsuit, notorious rocker Courtney Love is being sued by designer Dawn Simorangkir, also known as Boudoir Queen, who alleges Ms. Love made defamatory comments about her in a tweet.

While Twitter is new ground, lawsuits related to blogs are on the rise. The New York-based Media Law Resource Center says it is tracking 258 Web-related U.S. lawsuits, a sharp increase from 110 a year ago. Some of the lawsuits involve defamation, others deal with copyright infringement or fake profiles on social network sites such as MySpace and Facebook. The majority of Internet-­related lawsuits are connected to blog postings, says Eric Robinson, a staff lawyer with the Media Law group.

A year ago, blog lawsuits were a novelty, but they have been growing quickly. And so have the resulting awards - one as high as US$12.5-million. "The Internet was the Wild West, but now the sheriffs are coming in," Mr. Robinson says.

Part of the problem with the Internet is you have a lot of amateur gunslingers firing away at targets and they have no idea they could be liable for the damage they inflict, says Robert Cox, president of the New Rochelle, N.Y.-based Media Bloggers Association, which has about 2,000 members.

His group has helped establish an insurance plan for bloggers who might not be covered under their existing personal liability polices. Many bloggers who thought they had coverage soon discover that because their blog has revenue it is considered a commercial product and therefore is not covered by their personal liability insurance.

Another problem, Mr. Cox says, is that the insurance industry is realizing it has not built in proper risk models to account for the exposure to major lawsuits.

His group worked with a company called Media Professional Insurance on the blog plan. The company typically deals with larger entities such as newspapers, but was able to graft a policy for bloggers in September, 2008. The base rate is US$540, with coverage of US$100,000 per incident, or a US$2,500 deductible for US$300,000 coverage per year.

In Canada, insurance companies are still covering bloggers for their actions on the Internet, although the coverage sometimes means the insured need to have additional "umbrella" policies that cover their actions beyond the traditional liability policies they might have on their homes.

"If you have insurance, there is a good chance you are covered," says Henry Blumenthal, vice-resident and chief underwriter with TD Insurance. But he adds the umbrella policy is coverage that his company tacks on to the basic liability.

The umbrella coverage was not designed specifically for the Internet age, but to give people extra liability above and beyond the

$1-million in insurance they might have on their home or car.

While TD Insurance has not faced any libel claims, over the years it has defended clients who have faced slander charges. "It's extra peace of mind," he says, adding in the Internet age the policy will likely increase in popularity.

Perhaps even scarier for Canadian bloggers is that the courts have suggested the damages for Internet libel might even be higher than they are for traditional media. One reason for that is because Internet defamation can be seen as having a greater potential for damage because it is more pervasive than traditional media

"The potential [for higher damage awards] is out there for a number of reasons," says Doug Richardson, a media lawyer at Toronto-based O'Donnell, Robertson & Sanfilippo.

In 2004, Barrick Gold Corp. successfully sued a message-board poster for defamation. The precedent-setting decision by the Court of Appeal for Ontario should make some Internet users think twice about what they write. While an initial judgment granted Barrick $15,000 in damages, the Court of Appeal upped it to $125,000.

"Communications via the Internet is instantaneous, seamless, interactive, blunt, borderless and far-reaching. It is also impersonal and the anonymous nature of such communication may itself create a greater risk than the defamatory remarks are believed," the court said in its Barrick ruling.

"If you're on Twitter, or any of those things, you are responsible for what you say," says Mr. Richardson, adding that as your tweet circles the world, the damage only increases.

ITALIAN WOMEN ARE TOUGH!


ITALIAN WOMEN ARE TOUGH!

An elderly Italian man lay dying in his bed. While suffering

the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the

aroma of his favorite ravioli wafting up the stairs.

He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself

from the bed.

Gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs.

When he reached the bottom of the stairs, he leaned against

the door frame, gazing into the kitchen, where if not for death's

agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for

there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were

hundreds of his favorite ravioli.



Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of love from his

wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a

happy man?

He threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees

in a crumpled posture. His parched lips parted, the

wondrous taste of the ravioli was already in his mouth.

With a trembling hand he reached up to the edge of the table,

when suddenly he was smacked with a wooden spoon by his wife.

'Get away!' she said. 'Those are for the funeral.'

Jeff Gordon fires entire pit crew

Jeff Gordon fires entire pit crew

This announcement followed Gordon's decision to take advantage of President Obama's scheme to employ inter-city youngsters.

The decision to hire them was brought about by a recent documentary on how unemployed youths from Harlem were able to remove a set of wheels in less than 6 seconds without proper equipment, whereas Gordon's existing crew could only do it in 8 seconds with millions of dollars worth of high tech equipment. It was thought to be an excellent and bold move by Gordon's management team as most races are won or lost in the pits. However, Gordon got more than he bargained for!

At the crew's first practice session, not only was the inexperienced crew able to change all 4 wheels in under 6 seconds, but within 12 seconds they had changed the paint scheme, altered the Vin number, and sold the car to Dale Jr for 10 cases of Bud, a bag of weed, and some photos of Jeff's wife in the shower.

WOMEN'S ASS SIZE STUDY


There is a new study about women and how they feel about their asses; the results were pretty interesting:



30% of women think their ass is too fat.............
10% of women think their ass is too skinny......

The remaining 60% say they don't care, they love him, he's a good man and they wouldn't trade him for the world.

Dance through your day

"Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans: it’s lovely to be silly at the right moment."

-- Horace

Today, we invite you to do the Take-Your-Time Tango. In his book ‘Games for the Soul,’ Drew Leder challenges us to dance through our days with the graceful, slow elegance of a tango dancer.

Slow down a notch," Leder counsels. "Do whatever you do in a calm and leisurely fashion. ... As much as possible, don’t be driven by inner fear, external deadlines, or rushed companions to stumble through a speeded-up dance. Act as if you have all the time in the world. Come to think of it, you do: No one else has any more hours."

So stand (or sit) tall. Raise your chin as you gather your full concentration, dignity and self confidence to glide smoothly and beautifully through the day.

"We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life."

-- Martha Graham
