GENEVA — If there's one lifestyle tool that's ubiquitous, from American cities to remote villages of the developing world, it's the mobile phone. Can they also be deadly? The frustratingly unresolved debate erupted again this week with the release of a $24 million U.N. study spanning a decade and covering 13 nations that suggests frequent cell phone use may increase the chances of developing rare but deadly form of brain cancer. Worryingly, since glioma has a potential latency period of a quarter century — longer than cell phones have been in widespread use — even the study's authors say ...
By volume, the Columbia is the fourth-largest river in the U.S., and it has the greatest flow of any North American river draining into the Pacific. The river's heavy flow and its relatively steep gradient give it tremendous potential for the generation of electricity. The 14 hydroelectric dams on the Columbia's main stem and many more on its tributaries produce more hydroelectric power than those of any other North American river. The Columbia and its tributaries have been central to the region's culture and economy for thousands of years. They have been used for transportation since ancient times, linking ...
weekly reader: 23sep07
Well the big deal the week end 9/23 was the launch of Alan Greenspan’s memoirs. Just kidding it was the cut in the Fed rates by an unexpectedly large 50 basis points. Though to judge by the media blitz, including the Jon Stewart Show, it wasn’t. Which was actually good news because it provided a lot of air cover for a difficult, contentious and uncertain policy decision. While my suspicion is that problems in the world credit markets were the proximate cause since, judging by interest rate spreads, adjustments are being made, the much worse than expected jobs numbers and the accelerating implosion of housing   ... market research, surveys and trends
thesis proofs, finish + coda
In my dream, I visited a gallery. It reminded me of Casa Sin Nombre, a cute little space in Santa Fe, long gone, where I once saw a small exhibit of William Burroughs shot pieces and photos by – was it Ginsburg? I can’t recall. Anyway, the interior was Santa Fe Style with wood floors or Saltillo, vigas and candles. Then, I stepped through the door to a huge patio restaurant. I was no longer in Santa Fe. I was in LA. The tables had umbrellas. What a celebrity crowd! Jeffrey Vallance was the first one I noticed, and he me at the same time. Other colorful characters nodded or waved as the hostess led me through, and one ... market research, surveys and trends

The Worst is Still to Come! There is a bubble that the FED and the government are creating right now and this is a bubble in government debt, in the size of it. They are being very successful at that. Eventually the US Government will go bankrupt the way California is almost bankrupt, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Middle East Report 210: Dreamland: The Neoliberalism of Your ...
Neoliberalism is a triumph of the political imagination. Its achievement is double: while narrowing the window of political debate, it promises from this window a prospect without limits. On the one hand, it frames public discussion in the elliptic language of neoclassical economics. The collective well-being of the nation is depicted only in terms of how it is adjusted in gross to the discipline of monetary and fiscal balance sheets. On the other, neglecting the actual concerns of any concrete local or ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Who's pushing Rays move?
TAMPA — Ryan Neubauer has had many experiences in his 31 years: serving as a congressional intern, testifying in a political corruption trial, trading snakes over the Internet. He has worked as a Milwaukee alderman's aide, a community organizer, a software consultant and a temporary worker studying ways to make affordable housing green. Last summer, he launched a website — — touting the merits of relocating the Tampa Bay Rays to downtown Tampa as discussions about the team's future heated up. Today, barely three years after arriving in the area, he's the front man for an ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Hackers and Apple make for a dangerous pair
around, and the way a modern malware creator works is through the law of large numbers: You infect a lot of computers to harvest a useful number of passwords, send a significant amount of spam, or otherwise wreak a substantial amount of chaos . This is why no one writes viruses for, say, the Amiga . What would be the point? There’s no money in it. Now the world has changed. While Mac computers are still relatively rare (though not as rare as they once were), the iPhone and iPad have changed the game, and Apple — worth more on the market than Microsoft now — is a major player in the computer industry once again. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Let's leave alone military intelligence news, financial markets news, religious or newspapers favoring particular sectors. Can two veteran journalists with same background and similar experience think differently and make different calls on socially important news? That was my question. I posted the same question elsewhere but closed it as they couldn't understand the fact that I argued in favor of the journalist in question in this case! Please do not ask me questions or personally attack on me. Just go ahead and post what you think! posted 2 months ago in Corporate Governance | Closed Share This Multimedia Producer ...
which one is better: eBid or iBid
I'm thinking to buy such a domain in a country extension and not sure which one to pursue. If you have a choice, would you take ebid.xx or ibid.xx, eTravel.xx or iTravel.xx? The word can be used as a noun or a verb. Tell that to esurance.. ;) Honestly, type in traffic is unreliable unless you have the keyword or something extremely close. As stated elsewhere, content is king. You can bang your fists on a keyboard and pretty much get that .com and as long as you fill it up with good and reliable content, the search engines will find you and people will bookmark you. As for i vs. e? Why not go for both? It's about an E ...
