Top 10 Gmail Labs and Features You Should Enable
Multiple Inboxes is my #1. Wouldn't know what to do without it. Flagged I've been trying to set up Multiple Inboxes but can't get it to work. I heard it stopped working after a recent update (sometime in the past year). It's still working for you? Still working great for me under two different Gmail accounts (work and home). Here's how I use it. The normal Inbox is used for Quadrant 1 (urgent and important). Are there then four additional inboxes (thanks to this wonderful add-on). Q2 is for Quadrant 2 (not urgent but important).Q3 is for Quadrant 3 (urgent, but not important).If an email happens to be Quadrant 4 (not urgent and not important), it goes to spam.WFR is 'Waiting For Response'. The tedious part is setting up the labels and filters to make sure most of the emails I receive are automatically filtered into the correct inbox. Hope this helps!

Maintaining Memories with Marijuana Can smoking marijuana prevent the memory loss associated with normal aging or Alzheimer's disease ? This is a question that I have been investigating for the past few years. The concept of medical marijuana is not a new one. A Chinese pharmacy book, written about 2737 BCE, was probably the first to mention its use as a medicine for the treatment of gout, rheumatism, malaria, constipation, and (ironically) absent-mindedness.

The term ‘geek’, once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness. As time has gone on, the word has yet again morphed to indicate a new type of individual: someone who is obsessive over one (or more) particular subjects, whether it be science, photography, electronics, computers, media, or any other field.
