Books Read in 2017

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Huari

Like Sapiens, Huari’s previous book, Homo Deus changed my perspective on reality. Homo Deus breaks down the forces shaping our future. Though the book’s close left me in a nihialistic depression, Homo Deus goes in my “must-read-if-you’re-a-human” category.

Spent: Sex, Evolution, and Consumer Behavior by Geoffrey Miller

Reading Spent is like taking the red pill and awakening to our consumer society as it really is. Miller looks at consumer behavior through the lens of evolutionary psychology. He argues that purchases are driven by status seeking, social signaling, and sexual solicitation. While the book needs more judicious editing, it’s a must-read for marketers.

Zero to One by Peter Thiel

There’s some great questions in this book. Here’s my thoughts on a few of them:

“What are the big companies of the future that don’t exist yet?”

Obviously, augmented reality will be a big player. Instead of looking at screens, we’ll have digital elements incorporated into our line of sight. Here’s a creative imagining on what a world with AR could be like:
I predict another large company of the future will be an AI service that helps you make life decisions. The AI-powered service would monitor your vitals as you respond to situations around you. It would then compare your data to the data from lifetimes of other users, and use that data to help you make deicions that optimize your happiness.

For example, I might think that taking a well-paying job in a big city is the right life choice. The AI might disagree, telling me that people like me who make that choice have a 20% higher risk of heart disease. Moreover, the service would remind me that there’s a 65% chance my commute would be longer than 40 minutes. It knows from its history of monitoring my vitals that a lengthy commute elevates my blood pressure. The service predicts I’ll be at least 4% happier and have 16% fewer medical bills in a small town.

While this type of service may sound like science fiction, I’m already dependent on Spotify to predict my next favorite songs. Spotify pays attention to every track I play, knows which music I’ve never heard, and delivers me a custom playlist every week. On average I like 30% of its recommendations, a better win rate than friends’ recommendations.

Zero to One also asks:

“What important truth do very few people agree with you on?”

I would say, “Buying X won’t make you happy.” While many people would agree with me on this one, few agree with it in action. Myself included.

One of my favorite passages in Zero to One:

If we already understand as much of the natural world as we ever will—if all of today’s conventional ideas are already enlightened, and if everything has already been done — then there are no good answers. Contrarian thinking doesn’t make any sense unless the world still has secrets left to give up.

Lean Analytics: Use Data to Build a Better Startup Faster by Alistair Croll and Benjamin

This book lays the groundwork for a deep comprehension of business analytics. Dense and helpful, I highlighted every other paragraph.

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

This book manages to live up to its hype. Captivated, I devoured it in two days and felt I had lived Noah’s childhood myself. Go with the audiobook version to savor Noah’s knack for accents.

How to Fail at Everything and Still Win Big by Scott Adams

This is a rare gem in the self-help world because it manages to be humble, funny, and… actually helpful. Throughout the book I kept thinking, “Huh. I hadn’t thought about it that way.”

Adams argues that you should create systems instead of goals. I used to try to build habits by doing sprints. E.g., “Meditate every day for thirty minutes for 30 days.” I would succeed, but the behavior wouldn’t stick around. Building a ‘forever system’ in your life is more effective, albeit a slower process.

Adams doesn’t think failing matters as long as you fail forward–that is, you create knowledge and contacts from each failure. He thinks as long as you keep trying and learning, you’re bound to find success someday. It worked for him, will it work for everyone?

Average is Over by Tyler Cowen

Average is Over is a fascinating read on where technology is taking jobs and the economy. Cowen uses computer-aided chess tournaments to extrapolate how humans will work with intelligent machines.

What Doesn’t Kill Us by Scott Carney

Someone finally explains why animals have no trouble in the cold, but I freak out the minute the temperature drops below 67. It turns out that animals have brown fat that they burn to keep warm. We too could develop and use this fat, if only we stopped confining ourselves to temperature-controlled boxes. Carney, like Wim Hoff, proposes we have the power to condition ourselves to embrace the elements. As someone who’s dabbled in Hoff’s methods, I appreciated getting a deeper understanding of the science behind them. I closed the book enamored by the cold, but it may take a few more reads before I can keep my hands off the thermostat.

The Inevitable by Kevin Kelly

An entertaining book about where technology is going. Having adored Wired as a kid, I felt waves of nostalgia as Kelly described the evolution of the internet in the same excited tone as early Wired issues. I loved Kelly’s description of a future city where you basically own nothing — every gadget is provided on-demand through a seamless network. While I’m more concerned about AI’s problems than Kelly, I enjoyed the dose of optimism.

The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey

Lots of good ideas for productivity experimentation in here. My favorites:

  • Keep track of your productivity. As with everything, you can’t manage what you don’t measure.
  • Use caffeine strategically. Use it only when you want your brain at full capacity, not as a daily routine that your brain will normalize.
  • Write down each distraction as it arises and then ignore it.

Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life by Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Fields

Minimalism is scraping away the excess to live what is truly important to you. This is a good book to get started on minimalism, though reading a few minimalism blogs would suffice.

Lying by Sam Harris

Thought-provoking read that questions the harmlessness of white lies. Lies separate the liar from those around him.

Mini Habits by Stephen Guise

The premise of Mini Habits is that you do one super-easy thing every day to build lasting change. Guise argues that if you make your habit super easy and do it every day, you overcome your resistance and a major habit builds. It sounds good in theory, but so far my attempt at using mini habits has not yielded success.

Triggers: Creating Behavior That Lasts by Marshall Goldsmith

I wasn’t impressed with this book, but I liked the idea of doing daily ratings for values every evening. Such as, “Did I treat everyone with kindness today?” and then rate that from a 1-10. Or, “Did I make the best choices for my health today?” or “Did I make the wisest decisions for how to invest my time today?” You can set up this type of daily review and scoring system with the HabitBull app.

The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko

The Millionaire Next Door presents the findings from studies of America’s multi-millionaires. The authors found that the millionaires who keep their money are those who forego the status symbols of wealth. After all, expensive status symbols drain finances. “I am not my car,” says one millionaire studied, reflecting the sentiment of the many millionaires who drive regular trucks and sedans. While many of the millionaires studied made their fortunes from being in profitable industries (e.g., attorney, doctor), many simply scrimped and saved their way to financial independence.

This book made me reflect on my material desires and see if they originated from a desire to appear a certain way. For example, will people think less of me if I never update my wardrobe? Or will I get the societal belonging I crave if I focus that energy on helping others?

Wired to Eat by Robb Wolf

In Wired to Eat, Wolf recommends a paleo diet with the addition of select carbohydates. Wolf provides evidence that everyone processes carbohydrates differently. Thus he recommends that you test your own body with different carbohydrates to see which work best with your body. This idea made sense to me. Why are there so many conflicting opinions about what to eat? Perhaps because everyone’s body reacts to food differently.

The Complete Guide to Fasting by by Jimmy Moore and Dr. Jason Fung

Good overview on fasting. If you are already convinced of fasting’s health benefits, skip it unless you want more information.

Your Money or Your Life

Robin looks at money through the eyes of life energy. It takes you X number of hours to afford Y. Using this perspective, you get a better sense of the value of your money.

Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

Women have difficulty negotiating in a society where both women and men expect women to be “nice.”

IF WE CLOSED THE GENDER PAY GAP… the average Hispanic woman would earn $1,000,000 more over the course of her career. – LeanIn.org

The Case Against Sugar by Gary Taubes

Fascinating book on the history and ramifications of sugar. So many things I didn’t know, such as how the British Empire was built on the sugar, coffee, tea, and cacao trade. “Sugar is a drug to make the suffering of every day bearable.”

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller

Light, artful read with a strong message. To live a good story and have a consequential life, you have to go beyond comfort and seek a meaningful challenge filled with risk and obstacles. You can also choose to solve problems by choosing a different story. A family became concerned that their daughter was dating a troublemaker. They realized that she was doing that because she didn’t have any better story to live than the story he brought to her life. So the dad decided that they were, as a family, going to build an orphanage. This meant a lot of work and sacrifice in everyone’s lives, but the family became engaged with the meaning it provided in their lives. The girl lost interest in the guy.

Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic & the Domestic by Esther Perel

To keep the spark alive in long-term relationships, introduce mystery. For most couples, this means spending more time apart. I’ve found Perel’s well-produced podcast similarly entertaining and thought-provoking.

The Geography of Bliss: One Grump’s Search for the Happiest Places in the World by Eric Weiner

This was a perfect book for me as I tried to figure out where to travel and where to call home. Weiner chronicles his thoughts on what makes places and cultures happy, such as Icelanders’ freedom to reinvent their career without society’s disapproval.

Rejection Proof by Jia Jiang

A fun read on one man’s experiments with rejection. Jing argues that our fear of rejection stems from an evolutionary reliance on staying included in a tribe. Now that being rejected by someone has little impact on our survival, our fear of being rejected causes more harm than good. I loved how Jiang opened his life to adventure and connection by asking unusual questions.

The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann

Cute parable on achieving success through a giving mindset. I have experienced this principle in my life. I’ve been successful when I aimed to do my best to help others succeed. When I didn’t worry about compensation; when I didn’t try to keep score.

Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want by Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy

It’s a good book. But instead of reading it, consider meditating on your impending death.

The Wizard of Ads by Roy H. Williams

A little gem of a copywriting book.

Contagious: Why Things Catch On by Jonah Berger

Why X would go viral: people look good by sharing X, a routine event prompts people to share about X, there’s emotion involved in sharing X, people can be helpful by sharing X, there’s a good story behind X.

The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy

What you do today matters because it adds onto what you did yesterday and builds the foundation for what you do tomorrow. Make it count.

When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron

I’ve savored this one slowly and picked it up in hard times. Chodron’s writing is a gift.

  1. LoriB scrive:Secondo me lost è “mitico”! e credo che Jacob potrebbe essere Lock in un tempo diverso, magari dopo la sua morte. Quando Richard gli dice che deve morire per riportare i 6 sull’isola è perchè è stato lo stesso Lock o Jacob a dirglielo per farselo riferire in un tempo precedente.Forse un po contorto, ma fiko!!!!

  2. Je suis d’accord avec toi …tout dépend de l’intention de départ. Réussir à sortir les forums du mercantilisme pour rester dans le monde de la photo est une excellente chose ! j’en connais aussi …

  3. I love these tips Lynne. I’m off tomorrow to Merry Old England (for a wedding, not the Olympics!) and a few days in Scotland with my grown up kids and my husband. This time I’m remembering to bring my digital recorder along instead of writing notes on scraps of paper, which is what I usually do. I’ll keep your tips in mind and try to stay away from the computer except for a blog or two along the way!

  4. Yes ~ a theory in regards to the Earth being completely encompassed with ice or snow- frozen. Though, scanning the above comments, I see that it is a theory of a particular period whereas I understood it as a cyclical happening.-Executive Asst to a Chair of a science dept. at HarvardI think your poll may be partial though as your readers are interested/follow or write on science topics.KAS

  5. 27. Paradox – thanks for the story – I may pass on a version of it to my friend28. DKL – “If God appeared to your friend in person then that would seem to settle the matter directly. Evidently, that’s just too much to ask.” Apparently, unfortunately… I appreciate your candor and the view on the evidence and ambiguity…29. Nick Literski – I think that the point is that the evidence of deity is different for people depending on their situation. I think this is precisely why there are so many different religions. We each find peace in different ways and that is ok with me.

  6. God did it. This is a thoroughly Greek narrative. How many humans did Zeus impregnate? How many did Jehovah? It’s clearly got un-Jewish elements as a tale. Within the tale 30 years or so are missing and suddenly resume. Travel abroad. Anyway, I’m reading behind the lines here and seeing what it says Generally about Roman, Greek and Jewish (and other oriental) cultures commingling.

  7. Detta snygga bord skulle passa så fint hemma hos mig! Jag har ganska nyss tapetserat om, men inte hittat något sidobord som jag känner är "jag". Nu har jag hittat det och hoppas hoppas verkligen jag kan ha turen med mig. Sen har det varit ett slitsamt år med många tårar som har fallit så jag tycker jag är värd lite uppmuntran! kram

I think Hollywood hated for that as much as anything else.I still haven’t gotten around to these even though I’m a Welles obsessive. I’m making an early New Year’s resolution right now to tackle these for 2009. No more excuses.

  10. Dag Marie,Dank voor je reactie… Wat mooi dat je het als een spiegelverhaal beschouwt, dat vind ik heel bijzonder. Is er een specifiek bijbelverhaal die je in mijn verhaal gespiegeld ziet? Ik ben niet zo bijbelvast namelijk ).Harte groet,Nina

  11. Hello, I am the author of Jcrop. Thank you for posting this most clever hack! I haven’t analyzed the code extensively but I was impressed you did it without any modifications to the code (I need to post an update!). Right? Very nice. Have you tried using a transparent gif or png, and also the option bgColor: ‘transparent’ – could be useful here. Thanks again!

  13. I have been in Psychiatric Nursing (uniforms are taboo) or management (suits required) for over 20 years. Very open to ideas to work in scrubs and look professional rather than feeling like I am going to work in my pajamas. I KNOW that nurses look professional when dressed in uniform, just want guidance to conform with this style! This assistance is asked with the most humble of request! J

Then the crow will be served, and we’ll see who will be eating it.The Navy has found the research worthwhile enough to fund, I’m patient enough to wait for the results.I admit, I’ll have my fingers crossed, ’cause I’d really like to see fusion stop being vaporware technology.

  15. I think that they iphone 5 is not worth all of the hype, the screen will crack eventually and it will look just ugly after a while, and their will smudged marks all on the screen . To spend hundred of dollars on a phone is financially irresponsible.

  17. Welcome to the blog, and thanks so much for the kind words! “Mutiny” is lovely, feel free to keep it. I go by “ZenMonkey” just about everywhere else, myself. Nice to have you here and by all means spiel about yourself if you are so inclined.

  18. Internet is a source of information and knowledge. But there are so many sites in net which are nothing but gibberish. But when I visit your site – I felt that – in net there are lots of sites (like this) from where I can get lot of information too. And if I say truly – your site is fantastic. I’ve bookmarked your site in my browser; I hope in future days I’ll get more valuable information from your site.

  19. Yes thats right!I hate that all the punks look the same today.Leather jackets, mohawks and bondage jeans from some shop.Nobody is offended by a mohawk anymore.Be an individual!Bring Back the Freaks! 😀

  20. Hey Allyson, I listed those excuses cause they were ones I used first hand. I know I’m not the only one that has used them. Time is something I still struggle with. It’s not time from blogging but time to do chores or clean my house! It’s just all my free time now is spent blogging, which I love.I’m glad I came across Chris’ blog while I writing this. I’m glad it inspired you!Hope you had a great weekend!

  21. Hello Heather,So super great to hear from you! I still remember our trek in Nepal with all the fun details!!I am doing great, Asia360 is an exciting new venture for me and I am sad you will have to travel to Asia with someone else! But I wish you an awesome trip and when you are back, let me know all about it!! Take care and be well,Anna

  22. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such excellent information being shared freely out there.

  23. They are awful creatures. When I lived in DC my cat had just had kittens, and she brought a baby possum into the house. It was sooooo ugly. I don’t know if she was feeling maternal or was planning on feeding it to the kittens. She wasn’t a bright cat. Hubs took it back outside, and sure enough the cat brought it back in. Next time we took it to a local park and never saw it again. I remember thinking, baby animals shouldn’t be this ugly.

  26. Hi Joe, I did try but I couldn’t find a way to make it cost effective. I spent 6 months trying to get the product made in the UK, firstly through a homeworker and then by small factories but I wasn’t able to keep the costs down low enough to make it worthwhile. If it had worked out, yes it would have been a lot easier.

  27. Messy is fine. But embedded pdfs are not so fun. Oh well. Thanks: interesting stuff.(well, the nazis coopted just about everything else of worth in the world. I don’t think their interest has any great bearing either way in judging someone’s art or character.)

  28. jm, we all have stories like that. I was in a security line up at Toronto airport when harpo was still opposition leader and he charged to the front of the line saying who he was a that he might miss his flight. Hedy fry keeps getting re elected by the way so her constituents think highly of her. BCL's logic here is dead on.

  29. Hi NickyThank you for your inquiry. We can definitely help you. I have sent your message onto Elaine who will reply to you later today.Choreographing wedding dances is our specialty. I personally have been have been doing it for 15 years. Seeing as you have 2 months available we could even fit in 4 group classes. 3 Private lessons cost R1500 and 3 privates with 4 group classes R2000. These fees are per couple. Having group classes as well means we can do more in the privates and you will have other dances to do later on during the wedding.

  31. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  32. Danke Gerd für diese Zusammenstellung.Es ist schon richtig. Es gibt denkwürdige Aussprüche, die positiv sind und andere die negativ sind; also gute und schlechte.In jedem Fall sind sie des Bedenkens wert.Es gibt keinen Grund sie nicht untereinander zu schreiben.

  33. From a directors point of view, I know that I’m more likely to be awarded a job if I don’t say ‘I think it should be done like this’, rather ‘here’s a few ways how it could be done’ then argue the merrits of each.That’s not to say I never take the former approach (sometimes it is necessary), but I just know that creatives/clients/whoever are more likely to buy if they feel they can mould it, to create ownership.

  34. Zack dijo 2  0 Todo parece indicar que se quedara como exclusivo para PS3 y XboX 360, al menos en el lanzamiento. Pero nada está del todo dicho y no seria nada descabellado que mas adelante, si logra buena popularidad, se traslade también a la PC

  35. it high time for we the people to put all politicians in jail. we have a need for true public servants. politicians are self serving assholes out to destroy our nation. the only way to bring about any meaningful change is to remove them all from office. we need to ask really good people to serve for us and stop picking ones who want it. if they want it its not about us its about them and what they can do to us. it is time to take every politicians out of office and put in our own people.

  36. Nathan,What would be your advice for a non-writer with a compelling true story (as in one that will be told in national media) who also doesn't have the money to get hire an editor to help with the proposal. I'm afraid I'll butcher a fantastic story. At best I could come up with a one page on my own I would say.

  38. I always enjoy new wine books. I like to read what others in our community are up to and learning who the people are who are impacting the industry. It’s great to stay ahead of the curve on what is trending and comparing those trends to the direction my own interests move in.

  39. Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back were all top films!Chasing Amy was far to depressing!Not seen Jersey Girl, don’t think i want to! Clerks II will hopefully be in the first catagory!

I am open to Jack taking over the franchise, however, John McClane needs one more film to go out (retire) in a blaze of glory and be awarded for all his “super”human efforts upon saving a building, an airport and quite a few planes, NYC, The country from computer Hacker and Now the CIA’s ass and Moscow…

  41. SenecaI am not blaming women for being educated and pursuing careers. I am blaming the people who saw women doing that and raised prices of everything thinking now the American public can afford these prices because there is more income. I think this goes back to the recent argument here of more income. To me it doesn’t matter whether it was the man making x amount or the couple together making x amount. The income is the income. If the income of the man alone, as the sole earner, jumped up to as much as it became when women “entered the workforce” we’d be having the same prices, same conversations about inflation, etc.

  44. I’m speechless. This can be a superb weblog and very attractive too. Nice work! That’s now not truly much coming from an novice publisher like me, but it surely’s all I may say after diving into your posts. Great grammar and vocabulary. No longer like other blogs. You really know what you?re talking about too. Such a lot that you made me need to explore more. Your weblog has grow to be a stepping stone for me, my friend.

  45. Superb blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Bless you!

  49. 165melhor post que eu li nos últimos tempos. Acho que o ‘clube das blogueiras ricas, bem nascidas e felizes’ pensam que nós leitoras não temos o discernimento e senso crítico de perceber as panelinhas que se formam quando é pra comentar tal produto, tal campanha…aiai.

  50. A very liberal black man who spent his early career race-hustling banks, praying in a racist church for 20 years, and actively working with America-hating domestic terrorists. Damn, they can’t just let it go, Adkins views are a minority view, I’m so happy. How long do you think it will take to sink in that Obama is the president and there is nothing they can do. Rethugs remind me of a two year old throwing a fit because they can’t have any candy… priceless!

  51. Just wish to say your article is as astounding. The clarity on your post is simply nice and that i can think you’re knowledgeable in this subject. Well along with your permission allow me to snatch your RSS feed to keep up to date with approaching post. Thanks 1,000,000 and please carry on the enjoyable work.

  52. Reading these comments reminds me how ignorant people are.  You have someone of Birgeneau’s calibre looking out for you and you bash him????  Be glad he is there, listens to your crap and go get a job.  If I were him, I would go somewhere else where the marketplace would pay me more.  Come on, get a grip.

Imetys on joskus melkoista vuoristorataa, mutta useinmiten kärsivällisyydellä vastoinkäymisistäkin pääsee yli.

  58. zionists always trying to control the narrative … I wrote to the guy who put up the maps of Palestine shrinking on those posters in New York and urged him to just put up the iconic pictures next time (worth a 1000 words, right?) – the father trying to protect his son (later killed and area bulldozed to hide the evidence); Rachel Corrie’s murder by tank; the young female artist shot in the head with a tear-gas cannister who lost an eye; the American citizen Turkish kid murdered on the Mavi Marmara flotilla boat … and 100 others

  59. Hi, Neat post. There’s a issue along together with your website in internet explorer, could check this… IE nonetheless could be the marketplace chief and a large section of other folks will miss your magnificent writing due to this dilemma.

  60. Vilken tur nÃ¥gon filmade det hela!!! Önskade att nÃ¥gon filmat när dom sköt Brutus! Nu finns en chans att ställa dom MIT väggen! Det är ett stort övertramp polisen gjort och denna gÃ¥ngen kommer dom inte undan! Nu har vi fÃ¥tt nog av vilda västern poliser! Stor Kram till dig i din sorg och trauma Med vänlig hälsning Henrietta… Jag mÃ¥r sÃ¥ illa!

  61. I found your website through a random stroke of luck. It helped me do my research on this topic. I have spent lots of time looking through your site. You have something good going here, keep it up!

  62. I have seen many useful factors on your web page about personal computers. However, I have the judgment that laptop computers are still not nearly powerful more than enough to be a sensible choice if you typically do projects that require a lot of power, for example video editing and enhancing. But for internet surfing, statement processing, and most other frequent computer work they are all right, provided you may not mind the screen size. Appreciate sharing your thinking.

  63. This made me well up! Isn’t it wonderful to turn an otherwise mundane day into something completely unforgettable and gorgeous? That is your gift, and it is a gift you GIVE to your clients. You also give the gift of showing your children that it is possible to make a living doing something you are passionately in love with! Also, you can’t fully retire until I have a family sesh with you, and I need a baby #2 before that happens! ~.^xoxo

  64. March 27, 2010 That was brilliant.I think this beats it on the reflex/athleticism side:But the De Villiers catch is on the boundary, and until you’ve fielded out there, you don’t know how difficult it is to judge the speed and height of those sorts of catches.

  65. Pues yo diria que es muy fácil. Buscas en el buscador la itv de tu localidad y en la página resultante tendrás el enlace para pedir cita itv. Otra cosa es que esa estación itv disponga del servicio de citas.Te lo digo porque yo tengo un taller y pido en muchas ocasiones cita itv online y sin nungún problema. Creo que para, como tu dices, trabajar en internet hace muuucho tiempo no tienes mucha idea, mujer tenias que ser, sin ofender…

  67. definitely believe that which you stated. your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. i say to you, i definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. you managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. will likely be back to get more. thanks

  68. Das lässt ja tief blicken,wenn grüne milchbubis jetzt schon drohen,wer statt sie zu wählen Linke wählt brauche sich hier für Dekaden nichtmehr blicken zu lassen..In Dekaden,mein Lieber Grüner,gibts Euch Grüne nicht mehr,zumindest ist dann Schluss mit euerer Kriegstreiberei

  69. De mon côté, les entrées "not provided" ont presque doublé en en 3 jours (j'avais une moyenne de 100 entrées/jour, j'en suis à 180 hier). En revanche, fait étonnant, ce sont ces entrées qui montrent le taux de rebonds les plus importants. Mais quelles sont donc ces mots clés… arggghhhh

  70. You probably weren’t chattin’ with a hummin’ bean. I imagine the chance to express your dissatisfaction with TA may have been of some benefit I’ll bet these TA reservations are high up on the hotel’s hit list of “internet reservations” that can get munged if there’s a situation at the hotel, too. Nothing like talking to the front desk and getting, “Sorry, you have an INTERNET RESERVATION — you’ll have to talk to them!”

  71. Big Frank, you’re firing on all cylinders here. The main reason why Mexicans are pouring over the border is due to policies and corruption back home. I can’t begin to tell you how much the blood boiled in my veins when the visiting Mexican president lectured US congress about immigration, though Mexico’s is one of the strictest in the hemisphere.

  72. I am 14 and I listen to Mr Savage and what he speaks I see going on in the school I go too. They shove global warming down are throats and illegal immigration isnt bad we nedd to be diversified. ITs unbeliviable I see my parents paying loads and loads of taxes then it goes to the illegals for their children for free lunches and schooling and healthcare. Thank you Dr. Savage for speaking the truth and proving how insane liberlism is.

  73. All diese Modelle fußen ja auf der Annahme, dass man Liebe/ Partnerschaft herbeipsychologisieren kann oder aber zumindest die Wahrscheinlichkeit für das Zustandekommen steigerbar ist. Gibt es dafür irgendwelche Indizien? Studien/ Befragungen oder ähnliches? Das wäre ein Aspekt, der mich interessieren würde. Und vielleicht sowieso noch von dir aufgegriffen wird?!

  74. Ray – thanks for that super detailed review. I have been seriously considering the FR210 for a while and you have helped me make up my mind. This watch is exactly what I’m looking for and I will be ordering one very soon. Is it okay to buy oneself something wonderful and expensive when one should be shopping for others? :¬)

  75. Oh yes, tea time is one of my favorite times. It is very relaxing on a hectic day. It looks like you love travel and photography like my daughters and I. They like to see the different cultures and traditions of people. Thank you for visiting us at Red Rose Alley. Have a sweet day.~Sheri

  76. NPR is a loop recording of the Israeli talking points fed to everyone in the MSM. Really it is quite extensive material that they receive, and at times they are wined and dined to make sure the message sets in strongly. Anyone who gets out of line is dismissed.

  77. Holly Reid – Ebony aka Rae Images – thanks so much for shining your light (and your camera) on this 90 Day Challenge. I am excited about what God WILL do in the lives of those who accept the charge to be better stewards.

  78. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  79. Este pais é mesmo comico..eu conheço umas quantas pessoas assim!Trabalhadores exemplares que chegam antes da hora…mas na verdade durante o dia não fazem nada de util… mas aos olhos dos patrões são os maiores! Depois ha os que realmente cumprem horarios mas o seu dia de trabalho é mais produtivo que 1 semana do supostamente Bons funcionarios exemplares! É o pais que temos deixa la! E viva os espertos! 🙂

  80. Maybe the same people who faked Obama's first online birth certificate?The Alinsky tactics are a bit old. From what I understand there were only 2 or 3 places that have the microfilm of those Hawaii papers. So it wouldn't be too hard.

  81. Give an option for the publisher whether he wants ads to be shown on the uploaded video…. and then…. share the revenue with him! It should be just like adsense. You need the content/site owners permission, and you share the revenue with them.I am sure if you go this way, every one will be happy, and the content will also be increased.

  82. Interesting to see Lord Ashcroft’s comments on the recent Tory poster depicting Miliband as a schoolboy:“The facts are potentially powerful, but it is hard to see how this juvenile Photoshopping could do anything other than make ordinary voters roll their eyes in despair. … if I had recently donated funds to the Tories I would be asking what on earth CCHQ thought it was doing with my money.”At least the image of Miliband as a schoolboy had a certain effectiveness. I don’t think Miliband as the bankers’ poodle has any.

  83. italo disse:soft arruma esse link pq quando vc vai baixar só tem uma opçaõ:o deposit files e ele naõ funciona pq carrega os segundos mas diz que ele foi removido!!!!!soft arruma esse link ou coloca outra opção pq não tá dando pra baixar!!!!!!! faz alguma coisa a respeito disso por favor!!!!!!!!!!!!

  86. Just another example of selling the 98% of us down the river for either corporate interests, big oil or big insurance. I think it’s actually Congress’ form of “career planning”- they screw us while paving their own way to a VERY lucrative job after leaving congress. Maybe we should call it “The Blanche Lincoln path to wealth”

  87. I agree with Kathryn. And I prefer to buy from fictionwise or other bookstores that allow me to pay with paypal or other echeck for drm-protected software so I don’t put the purchase on the credit card.I’ve always thought it a pity there wasn’t a version of the ereader software that works on nintendos. That’s a large ready-made device market!

  88. The attacks in Norway, if perpetrated solely by a white, native-born Norwegian, are more frightening than an Islamist attack. If that is so, a tipping point has been reached in Norway. Norway will never be the same. Never.

  89. Eso de elegir entre dos malas opciones es una de las peores caras de la democracia. Lo digo por experiencia, en Argentina muchas de las provincias más antiguas están gobernadas por “caudillos” que suceden en el poder cada cuatro años sin cesar. A ese ritmo no se avanza nunca. Así se vive pobre y eternamente sometido. Después de mucho tiempo de abuso se suceden los estallidos que derivan en intervenciones por parte del estado para restaurar el órden.. Ese es el atenuante a una enfermedad a la que no se le ha descubierto la cura.Siempre lo mismo.

  90. p.s. co do silikonu, krem do stóp z silikonem też jest znakomity, obecnie tylko na wyprzedażach, polecam go wszystkim do codziennej pielęgnacji bądź ukojenia i zadbania o wysuszoną skórę stóp latem (zaś na poważniejsze problemy niezawodny jest krem do pięt, pewnie inne Panie się ze mną zgodzą ) pozdrawiam serdecznie

  91. Musimy być jednak uważni – jest co niemiara cudownie wyglÄ…dajÄ…cych , których aromaty nie przynależą do przyjemnych.

  93. Hello there! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I genuinely enjoy reading through your blog posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects? Many thanks!

  94. jared snuck up on me when we were first married and i karate chopped him right in the shoulder. the sad part was, that was my first reaction and wasnt doing it to be funny. it’s just the first thing my body did before i even yelped. seriously mental. but i bet that dweeb went home and told all his friends on World of Warcraft of the almost-battle between him and the elf princess in the parking lot.
