  1. I was reading an article today which states that Bono (from the band U2) and Carly Fiorina (the ex-CEO of HP) are up for the job. Frankly-- I think this is disgusting......I don't know if I can say anything else about it.... for all you who care to read: Bono (edited for broken link)
  2. I was always told Hydrogen power couldn't be done-- that is was a myth. GM's Billion-Dollar Bet The hydrogen car has been a long time coming. GM is betting $1 billion that the end of internal combustion is near. By Dan Baum VIEWED from the proper angle, Detroit's Renaissance Center — six medium-high office towers surrounding a cylindrical 73-story giant — is a mighty glass hand giving the finger. Hulking by the iron-gray waters of the Detroit River, this is the führerbunker of the tired old industrial economy: the headquarters of General Motors. These days, the company is
  3. This will be a death blow to a huge industry. Yet, I can safely say I saw it coming when that project in NYC started making noise.
  4. My theory was as follows: People, who felt isolated due to their moral beliefs, that used internet forums as a means of communicating with others in similiar positions would have (I should have said report) a higher instance of depression then the general public. Pd
  5. When Greenspan testified last week before the US Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, the notoriously obtuse chairman was quite succinct. According to Greenspan: "Why did corporate governance checks and balances that served us reasonably well in the past break down? At root was the rapid enlargement of stock market capitalizations in the latter part of the 1990s that arguably engendered an outsized increase in opportunities for avarice. An infectious greed seemed to grip much of our business community. Our historical guardians of financial information were overwhelmed.
  6. Thats a good point and something I hadn't considered before taking on this very scientic evaulation, so I thank you for your insight.
  7. The only sort of "competing" verisons of the bible come from difference sects of chirstianity (minor differences within the wording of the text...not really all that important to outsiders) or the "gnostic gospels" which may or may not have some sort of historical backing to them....historians tend to say no.
  8. I did the same thing...and I am in the same boat....apparently we are screwed. The answer wasn't nearly as difficult as I expected it to be.
  9. I was in the process of putting together a series of thoughts on this -very- scientific method. And, I had come across that statistic (8%) as well. I was amazed at the response of people as well. and Elle (and other mods), so far as my posts go if I have made an error and you correct it-- it isn't going to hurt my feelings. Paul
  10. Are you sure about this? I was under the impression that the land is simply being disputed as to which country does own the land-- I will have to do more research into this.
  11. I just checked the link and it worked fine and I am on a different server and computer then before...so I would persume that your computer hates you. Nigeria getting 60% seems high. Also what baffled me about it is the multicorporation team involved has the right to inspect for Oil for the next 8 years...then has to give up 50% of the territory. What is strange to me about all this was (according to an article I read...and can no longer recall where) was that a few years ago Sao Tome was literally BEGGING companies to come in and drill and then as opposed to being thankful for the jo
  12. and it is about bloody time. If I remember correctly Sao Tome sits on the worlds largest untapped oil reserve-- and it sounds like companies are finally willing to start drilling there-- (in the disputed waters between Nigeria and Sao Tome) Information
  13. You know it is sad by the time you were a freshman in high school you had gotten further along then I ever did. Alg II.
  14. well while 25 is hardly enough to have my theory confirmed or denied-- it is shaping up about where I thought it would be.
  15. The issue of the monetary cost upon others is something I hadn't actually considered. Though, with glossy ad via the mail, is the entire cost of the mailing covered within the 50 cents of postage? I realize that the postal service is set up in such a way that it can make a profit, but is a 50 cent mailing enough to cover the cost of say...a new york based business sending me mail about great mortgage rates (note: I live in saint louis) I don't actually have a cost sheet for the postal service but I would suspect the cost of handling the mail (in new york), sorting the mail (for interstate d
