I Go Places Alone - Shut Up and Go Maybe using a copy of my sister’s ID as an 18-year-old to explore NYC nightlife as a solo girl was a little extreme, but those nights with cheap heels on cobblestone streets taught me a lesson; when you go places alone, you build a relationship with the lifelong MVP: ya damn self. As a Freshman in college, my dorm friends would think I was crazy for strutting out of the building no earlier than midnight to wander off into The Meatpacking district completely alone. Yikers, who the hell was I back in 2011 It hit me one night like a “That’s So Raven” revelation; around January of 2011 I was invited out by a guy I barely knew from this awful retail job I had (for no more than a week) in Times Square.

Reserva Ecológica The Reserva Ecológica is a strange but wonderful place, a fragment of wild and watery grassland stretching for 2km alongside the Costanera. Having self-seeded with grassland after the landfill project was abandoned in 1984, the reserve offers a juxtaposition of urban and natural scenes, whether factory chimneys glimpsed through fronds of pampas or the city skyline over a lake populated by ducks and herons.Read morechevron_right Inside the reserve, near the entrance, the visitors’ centre displays panels explaining the park’s development and serves as the starting point for ranger-guided walks along the park’s many trails (Sat & Sun 10.30am & 3.30pm). Full-moon nocturnal tours (weather permitting) allow you to spot all manner of creatures, mainly birds, which keep a low daytime profile. There is a surprising diversity of flora and fauna in the park, with over two hundred species of bird visiting during the year.

Alternate Web Browsers for Windows Most people around the world will agree that they started using internet through Internet Explorer, then shifted to Mozilla Firefox and have finally landed on Google Chrome today. Of course, there’ll be many who disagree. Browsers such as Opera have also been featured in many devices that we use including computers and some particular OS. While it is true that Chrome happens to be the most widely used browser, it is also true that there exist many other browsers which could prove to be better than Chrome. It all depends upon what work you have from the browser you are using. We provide you a list of twenty alternate web browsers which could help you a lot: Omahyra Mota par Ellen Von Unwerth pour Casadei 50e anniversaire dominicanfashionmodels Share this: Like this: Leave a Reply Follow

I pearled the opening page of Wkipedia because I like to choose my language instead of my web browser doing it for me! by gormcc May 1

Wikipeida has been proven to be an incredible tool. While it is true that anyone can put in their two cents, many of the people who do add are professionals. This is why wikipedia was created. Wikipedia has also been proven to be more reliable to experts(regardless of their field or speciallty) than to the average person who reads articles. Through careful use and healthy skepticsm it is invaluble and useful. It has already surpassed Encyclopedia Britannica as the largest and most effective Encyclopedia on the web(even though EB requires subscription fees). One must also remember that this site operates on a similar principle: collaboration for a common goal, regardless of personal ability and qualification. by the_eclectic_boy Mar 29

Just about to hit 29,000 mark, on the way to 30,000 visits, this is a voyage like no other in cyber space. Pearltrees is the future of the web, I'm sure of it. by cloudexplorer Oct 16

Wow, I'm loving all the interaction here, Awesome people keep it up, & Loving PEARLTREES. by cloudexplorer Sep 24

People in the United States are weak when it comes to languages. There was a time during which a second language was required. That is no longer true. by ricwag1142 Sep 24

I speak what language I know like everyone else does here .Most of the members are now english . The head and founder of pearltrees who is French speaks both English and French here . You want to speak French feel free . Pearltrees was founded in France but it isn't a French site . It is open to all languages . If I want to know what the French or Spanish etc are talking about I use google translate . I don't go around telling them what to speak . by mirlen101 Sep 22

Evernote does seem to be the most popular . I have a hard time organizing data because I'm interested in everything ! And I also wander around getting distracted by shiny data ;-) My pearltrees have become so immense that the drop down list becomes useless when it is opened all the way . So I have resorted to the drop zone to sort later by internal search . You asked for a world history changing site . Facebook would be one . I hate to say that because I hate Facebook but recent world events has noted Facebook as the hub of the world wide rioting . Where countries have fallen to rebellion . by mirlen101 Sep 1

I have to say mirlen, you are an excellent tactician. If I have an extremely heavy class load that is very similar to how I approach the reading assignments. I also factor in the teacher and what they apply the most emphasis on in class. The largest problem that I have is focusing on the task at hand in an assignment. Without wandering through multiple tangents I found interesting that a search engine has thrown out. boboesq: I will check out the program dictator right after I finish here. I am also looking for a program that will help me to organize, capture, and retain all the information that I dredge up. I have tried: imizer, it has a lot of potential, but the amount of controls are daunting if you do not have the time. The simplest, most flexible, and links to your phone as well program I have found is: evernote. Plus it is free. My apologies for rambling on. by suntzutao Aug 31

This scanning is helpful but also harmful . We are becoming Attention deficit . People speaking and writing in short twitter like terms . Reading shallow instead of in depth . But I really get what you are talking about . I can't shove info in fast enough ! I scan fast and read slow ! ;-/ I'm a sponge though ! In highschool I had the 2 hardest classes according to the masses. They were both history and pretty boring . I used a method that took very short time and delivered high grades. I would read the questions at the back of the chapter first . Then would scan the chapter paragraphs from the front for each questions answer by looking for key words provided by each question ! I found that the answers were all connected by key words within the questions . I could do an hours work in 15 minutes ! People would ask if I was going to do the asignment ! When I told them I was finished they would just look at me in amazment ;-) I had one of the highest test scores ! by mirlen101 Aug 30

Here here! Anyone else found that they no longer read in the same way? I scan read very quickly in order to select amongst say 10 different web pages, But absorbing the infomation in text contained in books has become much harder.I am currently experimenting with a speed reading program: Man i wish there was a way to just absob the infomation via Osmosis! haha! by boboesq Aug 30

I personally enjoy the hunt for information, regardless of the source. Different generations require different skills to conduct research. When I was a young man, you had to know where to locate the books that you needed for your research. Once located you had to find the information hidden within thousands of pages of text. (I realize this is an over-simplification.) Now, with the internet holding more information then has ever been available in history. The primary skill for research has been the ability to determine the veracity of the information that you find. All this aside, nothing beats a good book in your hands on a quiet afternoon. Not only that, could you name me one web site that has so moved a person or government, that history has been changed? by suntzutao Aug 29

I think books are going the way of 35mm film cameras. I'll miss the physical browsing of the old used bookstores . And the look and feel of the vintage books . But digital makes sense in so many ways . For one less trees needed for pulp ! Good riddance to newspapers as well ! There are so many advantages to digital books ! The possibilities are endless ! by mirlen101 Jun 28

They are planning to make money by next year . They are waiting to see how it goes . They have something like 5 million invested here ! They hope this site will go viral ! So they can make money . They were hoping to make money by having paid content . It sounds like it won't work the way they were thinking . But they seem open to new ideas about how they might profit from this site . by mirlen101 Jun 28

I love it! So selfless of its creators too, the fact that, unlike the majority of innovative websites, they didn't make any money! by pooka_mcphelimy Nov 8

I love wikipedia, sure it may have its downsides but for instant gratifications of those random questions and thoughts that pop into my head it cant be beaten. by boboesq Jul 14
