Art by Alex Grey In order to answer the question, "What happens when I die?" I feel it is important to take a look at something a bit less speculative and that is the question of what happens when we live. There is no way to understand death if you don't know what life is.
By Paul Newall (2005) Expanding on our fourth discussion, we'll now look at the kinds of moves—rhetorical or otherwise—that can be made when setting out or defending an idea and countering others. We'll also consider some common errors in reasoning that come up in philosophical arguments from time to time, like anywhere else. The purpose of this piece is to provide a toolbox of concepts to use or refer back to when reading through and evaluating pieces of philosophy.
Google recently announced a redesigned navigation bar which will replace the black one we currently have. A move welcomed by all Google fans. Most of them hated the black bar.

Brian Hugh Warner (born January 5, 1969), better seen by his stage name Marilyn Manson , is an American rock musician, actor, painter, multimedial artist and former music journalist known for his controversial stage persona and image as the lead singer of the eponymous band Marilyn Manson . His stage name was formed by juxtaposing the names of two American cultural icons , namely actress Marilyn Monroe and multiple murder conspiracy convict Charles Manson [ 1 ] as a critical and, simultaneously, laudatory appraisal of America and its peculiar culture . [ 2 ] [ 3 ] The seemingly outrageous visual and vocal styles he employs, his unique interpretations of familiar songs and the controversy surrounding his lyrics and imagery have led to his very pronounced public appeal. [ 4 ] Manson has been ranked in the Top 100 Heavy Metal Vocalists by Hit Parader (#44). [ edit ] Early life

Posted Dec 21, 2011 A graphic picture is emerging in Mexico five years after President Felipe Calderon launched his all-out assault on organized crime: Mass killings as cartels fight each other for territory and civilians caught in the violence; police unable to prevent the mayhem or to investigate the aftermath. The government needed to act decisively, he said, to prevent organized crime from taking over the country. Over the next five years, he deployed 45,000 troops, made major hits on the leadership of at least five cartels and spent nearly $46 billion fighting organized crime, his defining domestic policy.
Google has just added a new flag in its Chromium 18 builds that extends the browser's hardware acceleration feature. Zoom Vector-based SVG graphics as well as CSS filters are now accelerated via the GPU and can be activated via chrome://flags in a recent nightly build . The feature is mainly for developers as there are very few websites that could take advantage of accelerated CSS filters. Chromium supports SVG and CSS acceleration on Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS. Additional experimental GPU acceleration features include GPU accelerated painting as well as GPU compositing on all pages.
From Wired How-To Wiki You don't need to visit a fertility clinic to find out how stacked your swimmers are. Photo by Esther Montoro/Wired.com About 40 percent of infertility issues in couples are due to male infertility. Even with these compelling statistics, men are still reluctant to go to the doctor to deal with the whole question of fertility for a variety of reasons — awkward conversation in the reception area, waiting sheepishly among other semen-holding guys, the possibility of being caught by familiar faces while stepping out of the clinic, to name a few.

From Wired How-To Wiki Dumping your entire music collection onto an iPod is a simple, one-click process. But what about getting your music off an iPod? You'll find that's not so easy. Apple's iTunes software only lets you put the music onto the player, and not the other way around.
I’m a big fan of the iPod but what I don’t like is Apple not being very forthcoming about how to move music from the iPod back to the PC. They’re quick enough to tell you how to move the music from your PC to your iPod but when you want to do the opposite, Apple clams up tight. Their reasoning is probably that the only reason you’d want to take your music off the iPod is to copy it and illegally distribute it. But that is really an insult to the music buyer. There are plenty of legitimate reasons why you would want to move your music from the iPod back to the PC.
"The Fox and the Grapes" is one of the traditional Aesop's fables and can be held to illustrate the concept of cognitive dissonance . In this view, the premise of the fox that covets inaccessible grapes is taken to stand for a person who attempts to hold incompatible ideas simultaneously. In that case, the disdain the fox expresses for the grapes at the conclusion to the fable serves at least to diminish the dissonance even if the behaviour in fact remains irrational. [ 1 ]
The phrase sour grapes is an expression originating from " The Fox and the Grapes ," one of Aesop's Fables . It refers to pretending not to care for something one wants, but does not or cannot have. Sour grapes may also refer to: [ edit ] Music
