How to make HTML email buttons that rock How to make HTML email buttons that rock Posted by: Eli Dickinson on January 29th 2013 The purpose of many emailed marketing messages is to encourage the recipient to visit a landing page or some other website.

MIDWAY – April 2012 – Miguel update Dear friends, Our team just returned from another exhausting and richly rewarding trip to Midway. This time we brought with us the new RED Epic camera, and our albatross friends brought us stunning visual gifts as we recorded their takeoff runs, water-skimming glides, soarings, and feedings, all in gorgeous ultra slow motion. One of our first stops on the island was to check up on our little friend Miguel who we witnessed hatch back in February. When we left the island last time, Miguel was looking weak and was having trouble standing up to receive his feedings, so our hopes for the little guy were not high.

Thinking Of Paris; Places Not to Miss By Arnie Greenberg There are so many details that are often left out of discussions about Paris. I’d like to suggest at least a dozen "MUST SEE" places with a brief description of some. Concepts Concepts There are two levels in my composition work: the subtext and the fabric. The subtext is usually based on some type of universal correspondences matrix, as shown in the following examples.
Philharmonie de Paris - concert hall PARIS — A crucial test for the Philharmonie de Paris, the new 2,400-seat concert hall that is now home to the Orchestre de Paris, came last Wednesday with the long-awaited and much-delayed official opening concert. But for the future of this ambitious project and, in a way, the future of classical music, the more revealing tryout came on Saturday. The Philharmonie presented a full day of free concerts, classes and workshops geared toward families in this gleaming and modern, if still unfinished complex, as well as the existing halls in what has become a de facto arts center near the northeast border of Paris.
SXSW 2011: The internet is over If my grandchildren ever ask me where I was when I realised the internet was over – they won't, of course, because they'll be too busy playing with the teleportation console – I'll be able to be quite specific: I was in a Mexican restaurant opposite a cemetery in Austin, Texas, halfway through eating a taco. It was the end of day two of South by Southwest Interactive, the world's highest-profile gathering of geeks and the venture capitalists who love them, and I'd been pursuing a policy of asking those I met, perhaps a little too aggressively, what it was exactly that they did. What is "user experience", really? What the hell is "the gamification of healthcare"? Or "geofencing"?
Kondansha Library of Japanese Art (10) TOYO SESSHU (1420-1506): Is generally regarded as Japan's greatest painter. His Zen-inspired paintings are credited with establishing a truly Japanese style of ink painting which had a great influence on all later Japanese painting. The Muromachi, or Ashikaga, period during which Sesshu lived was profoundly influenced by Zen Buddhism, which had been introduced from China during the Kamakura period. Under its impact the Chinese-style ink paintings of the great masters of the Southern Sung period, especially the landscape painters Ma Yuan and Hsia Kuei and the Ch'an painters Mu Ch'i and Yu-chien, served as models for the Japanese painters. Not only did these artists derive their style from China, but the landscape they represented was also that of South China in spite of the fact that many of them had never been there.
