I don't know how much the local news gets into the national or international circuit, but events in my hometown have supposedly been drawing a lot of media attention. They have been here, anyway. The Albuquerque Police Department has recently gotten itself into some trouble due to their absurd number of lethal shootings, the most egregious (but not the latest) one being the shooting of James Boyd, an extremely troubled man by all accounts who is probably the only homeless man in the entire history of Albuquerque to get a full-page biography in the city's paper. The video, as was pointed out at a city council meeting, was released by the police because they felt it exonerated the officers involved. It doesn't really. It looks really bad.

Why smart people do stupid things U of T Magazine Summer, 2009 By Kurt Kleiner How can someone so smart be so stupid? We’ve all asked this question after watching a perfectly intelligent friend or relative pull a boneheaded move. People buy high and sell low. They believe their horoscope. How to Travel Full-Time for $17,000 a Year (or Less!) Wise Bread Picks For the last five years, I've been traveling the world full-time, and for less money than I've ever spent (and I'd wager less money than most people would spend) to live in one place. My worldly possessions fit into one bag (just larger than carry-on size) and a backpack containing my laptop and computer gear.

Simplifying the Decision for a Prostate Screening Stuart Bradford One of the most difficult decisions a man makes about prostate cancer happens long before the diagnosis. Should he get a regular blood test to screen for the disease? Screening for early detection of cancer sounds like a no-brainer, but it’s not an easy choice for men considering regular P.S.A. tests, which measure blood levels of prostate-specific antigen and are used to detect prostate cancer.

The 48 Laws of Power Background[edit] 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.[5] In 1995, Greene worked as a writer at Fabrica, an art and media school, and met a book packager named Joost Elffers.[4][8] Greene pitched a book about power to Elffers and six months later, Elffers requested that Greene write a treatment.[4] 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.[10] 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.[10] Greene would follow Caesar's example and write the treatment, which later became The 48 Laws of Power.[10] He would note this as the turning point of his life.[10]
