50 Lessons Life Taught Me To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most-requested column I’ve ever written.

It’s Not My Fault… Ironically enough I actually had my ass handed to me, during a few rounds of Fruit Ninja, by my rotund friend at Intervention the weekend before last. Personally, I do not own a Kinect. Nothing so far about this peripheral has screamed “must have” for me yet. Fruit Ninja did come close, but I don’t feel that’s reason enough to drop $120+ on the device. I know there’s a lot more excuses people claim for why they lost. 36 of My Favorite Silly, Crazy or Funny Quotes For the Day - MiscFinds4u.com | MiscFinds4u.com Source: Uploaded by user via Princess Source: Uploaded by user via Princess Source: patinastores.com via Princess Source: lesleyvmartinez.tumblr.com via Princess Source: weheartit.com via Irene Source: lgalaviz.blogspot.com via Tammy< Source: imgfave.com via Carla Source: google.com via Sarah Source: weheartit.com via Soraya Source: google.com via Suzanne Source: Uploaded by user via Erin Source: img.izismile.com via Suzanne Source: etsy.com via Glenda Source: wtf.funnyjokesgalore.com via Katie Source: google.com via Flower Source: gorgeoustakethecity.tumblr.com via Laurie Source: stumbleupon.com via Jj Source: thepoke.co.uk via Jessi Source: weheartit.com via Rachel Source: bluntcard.com via Blair Source: google.com via Katie Source: thechive.com via Lauren Source: Uploaded by user via Caleb Source: google.com via Lynn Source: google.com.ph via doinks Source: google.com via Jordan Source: picsthatdontsuck.com via Sabri Source: sooking.me via Sooking.me Source: animalcapshunz.ican hascheezburger.com via Leo Connie
The 48 Laws of Power Background Greene initially formulated some of the ideas in The 48 Laws of Power while working as a writer in Hollywood and concluding that today's power elite shared similar traits with powerful figures throughout history. In 1995, Greene worked as a writer at Fabrica, an art and media school, and met a book packager named Joost Elffers. Greene pitched a book about power to Elffers and six months later, Elffers requested that Greene write a treatment. Although Greene was unhappy in his current job, he was comfortable and saw the time needed to write a proper book proposal as too risky. However, at the time Greene was rereading his favorite biography about Julius Caesar and took inspiration from Caesar's decision to cross the Rubicon River and fight Pompey, thus inciting the Great Roman Civil War. Greene would follow Caesar's example and write the treatment, which later became The 48 Laws of Power. He would note this as the turning point of his life.
Metamophing Computer Interfaces Metamophing Computer Interfaces Siafu is a PC designed to give people with vision loss or impairment a more intuitive computer experience. It lays flat like a tablet and allows the user to fully interact with it by way of touch. The technology behind Siafu – Magneclay, is an oil based synthetic agent that possesses limitless morphing capabilities. As for why the device is named after an aggressive African ant? Designer: Jonathan Lucas Siafu’s magneclay surface can generate full spread braill layouts, allowing users to enjoy reading digital content in a large book style relief. The surface of Siafu can form a working 9-button braille keyboard. Siaufu also possesses a built-in microphone, which provides an alternative to typing. Siafu has the ability to display screen images such as web pages in a bas relief. Siafu utilizes 2-D to 3-D image conversion technology to process screen images.
Welcome to Adobe GoLive 6 From Los Angeles Times: It's not all about you Chances are, others aren't judging you as harshly as you think, if at all. By Benedict Carey Times Staff Writer January 13, 2003 Oh, things sure took a bad turn. Take a deep breath. A growing body of research shows that far fewer people notice our gaffes than we believe as we pace the floor in private, going over and over the faux pas. Learning to recognize this self-deception can soothe the anxiety that surrounds social interactions. The spotlight effect blinds us in several ways. A pioneer in this field, Tom Gilovich, a psychologist at Cornell, has demonstrated the same exaggerated misperceptions in several situations, such as group discussions about social issues. The findings apply to most of us, of course, but not to everybody -- some people really do live under a microscope, as a chosen way of life. Most of the time a mistake is just a mistake, not a death sentence. Yet we don't expect that same empathy for ourselves.
Top 10 Things That Determine Happiness photo: meddygarnet Happiness is, by nature, a subjective quality with a definition like a moving target. There is scant evidence — qualitative or quantitative — to lend convincing support to those life variables most critical in determining individual happiness, which is likely why past researchers committed to the scientific method rarely tried to tackle the subject. This is changing. While we’re not entirely convinced of this marriage between science and subjectivity, we can still offer up a top 10 of things that determine human happiness, as supported by this growing body of research. No.10 – Having a short memory Are you one to hold grudges? No.9 – Exacting fairness According to a recently published study in the prestigious journal Nature, people derive more happiness from scenarios and situations that result in a perceived fairness for everyone involved, even when this fairness goes against self-interest or comes at some personal cost. No.8 – Having lots of friendships No.2 – Good genes
EN TUS BRAZOS How-To: Easily Remove the Vocals from Most Songs | r3dux.org 2015 Shortcut: When I wrote this article Audacity didn’t have an automatic center-panned vocal canceling effect… but now it does, so rather than do the stereo-separate / invert-one-track / play-both-as-mono trick (and that’s pretty much all there is to it), you should be able to find the Vocal Remover option in the Effects menu – but it’s more fun / interesting and can give better results if you do it yourself! =D I found this trick the other day whilst stumbling the Interwebs and thought I’d do a quick-write up w/ pictures to make it as easy as possible… For this exercise we’re going to be using a piece of free audio software called Audacity, which you can get for Linux, Windows and Mac. Update: If you’re trying this out on a Mac, please make sure you get Audacity 1.3 Beta or newer – the stable 1.2 version appears to have a missing equaliser decibal-range slider which you need towards the end of the process! 1.) Import Some Audio 2.) 3.) 4.) 5.) Wrap Up Cheers!
