The Urbz: Sims in the City was an absolutely amazing game which was a nice touch away from the traditional Sims games, where the player was an 'Urb', a Sim-ish character that travelled around the urban city and gain a reputation.
Also, there was a nice touch from a small appearance from the Black Eyed Peas.
In my opinion, they should bring back Misty from generations one and two into the newer generations of Pokemon.
She was original and the TV Show now lacks someone like her!
Bring her back, please!
British Columbia Residents are paying $7.5 million in annual loses incurred yearly in diesel generated electricity on Haida Gwaii since this 2006 study was done ($7.5 x 5 years = $37.5 million+
While the 'h2o4us-DWI' system could save us $1.5 -$1.7 million in generating losses per year.
A business case can be made for an aggressive Demand Side Management program for residential buildings in Haida Gwaii, accompanied by an education and information program.
Based on calculations of return on investment and advice from the Working Group, Technical Committee Members and the public, a Demand Side Management program was designed that includes (for approximately $18 million):
1. Energy efficiency audits;
2. Training and capacity building – providing training
to construction tradespersons, on-island retailers
and building inspectors;
3. Education and Awareness – providing energy effi
4. Bulk Purchasing and Product Incentives such as:
a) Lighting Incentives,
b) Appliance Trade-Ins,
c) Hot Water Effi ciency Upgrades,
d) Solar Hot Water System,
e) Programmable Thermostats, and
f) Financial support of existing on-island recycling
program (for appliance replacement).
Reducing dependence on diesel generators was clearly identified by residents as a priority. Local renewable resources were highlighted as the preferable technologies. In particular,
• Small hydro,
• Wind, and
were identified as having significant resource potential, sufficient capacity factor and acceptable costs.
Fight Fire with...? Fire..., right? Try this one...
Fight Fire with Water..
On the 2nd August 2008, Fizterofosy-Tech Productions launched a year long series of events as part of Tech-Park 2009 'The Build Up'. This series of events was created to free Ireland from it's old and somewhat conservative ways, and to make techno in Ireland more acceptable, respectable, and most of all accessible to DJ's and party goer's alike. This cause is not only of benefit to the fans and DJ's of Ireland, but also to Ireland's development as a whole; in regard to it's contribution to the economy, to social integration, acceptance and unity.
-Integrated acceptance as part of a community as opposed to seperated non-acceptance as part of a devide.
As a great disappointment to the launch of this very postitive era, the event was shut down half way through the evening. Months of work had been poured into this event; including both the promoters and each DJ's time, effort and passion. The gig was shutdown due to alcohol consumption during Waterford's annual Spraoi festival. While it is understandable that there are guidelines in place in order to control alcohol consumption at festivals such as Spraoi, it is however, inconsistant and in some ways hypocritical, to allow all other events to continue as hundreds of spectators and fans drank alcohol quite freely. The organisers and artists of other gigs were not held responsible for the consumption of alcohol at their gigs and they were not shutdown.
While I was frustrated and very disappointed at this result, I do not wish to point the finger or to argue with the closing down of the event, as I fully understand that each and every person involved has a job to do and I do not believe that the Garda Siochana have it in for the Techno genre or the people who attend. I believe there is an uncertainty of the ability to safely control these events for the garda involved, and that they can only work on what they believe to be true.. I believe it is a preconcieved misunderstanding that generates a result such as this one. Due to this misunderstanding, it seems a difference in technique is used to act on the law when it comes to events such as these. I wish to suggest a new means of co-operation as opposed to 'no-operation'.
So, the fire we are fighting here is neither the Techno lovers or the Garda. It is the human certainty of misunderstanding and pre-conception that revolves around any vague or unknown entity, genre, art, belief, etc. It is in communicating the facts and creating understanding that we begin to move forward and change things.
Following the launch of Tech-Park 2009 'The Build Up', Fizterofosy-Tech Productions has decided to use this opportunity to establish the first steps of the Techno Revolution at hand, and in doing so, take into consideration the widely known human certainty, that is fear. The unknown has always caused problems of acceptance in the evolution of human beings, from racism to religion.
With all this in mind Fizterofosy-Tech Productions has concluded that, while techno in Ireland is seen to be underground, dark and dangerous; it can not be altered by means of argument and interrogation but can only be changed and understood through means of expression and co-operation. With this in mind Fizterofosy-Tech Productions has launched a new campaign, a named extension to our mission statement, which is being named, "Fight Fire with Water". A new way of tackling both the concerns, and the misunderstandings that revolve around this great genre. Allowing us to progress by the means we wish to progress, to allow us to continue with our passion and belief, without it being reflected upon as bad news..
This campaign has been created in order to take an alternative approach to getting our beloved music accepted and widely available; free of prejudice and pre-concieved ideas. After all, we all have different hobbies, music, beliefs etc. that we enjoy in life, and the best way to continue to enjoy the above is to communicate that fact; to make the "unknown" known and to become accepted and not seperated. The "Fight Fire with Water" campaign has been created as an addition to Tech-Park 2009 'The Build Up' and will be incorporated into selected events and other ventures; as charity gigs/community events etc. Including in them, innovative ways of generating positive attention as opposed to negative attention.
Let's continue to do what we do, and show it's not all we do, while we do it!
I moved from baltimore city to baltimore county and i kept trying to get a job but my age got in the way every time.
I think we all know what Pakistan is going through.
We all know what it is heading towards and we will not watch like cowards.
To all those people who love, admire and respect Pakistan. My friends, in today’s date, are we able to say “I AM PROUD TO BE A PAKISTANI” ? Ask yourselves and you will know the answer. Of course, one should burn in hell before he/she says they are not proud of Pakistan.
But can we not do something, can we not be of some use. We all love our country because we fought for our independence.

For years, Disney has collaborated morals with entertainment. The movies guided to children to choose right from the wrong.
Now, movies are showing sex, bad language and violence. They are also PG rated. Children, today, are heavily influenced with the movies they watch.
Movies are influencing children to be more sexy, bad and violent. The problem must stop soon, before it ruins our generation and the future generations.
The Garment District on 200 Broadway is a thrift store in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Even though the building is very old, it has still become a localwide landmark for many years.
The store is a very well-known place to go for vintage clothing, Halloween costumes and other great finds.
If luxury apartments sprout up where the Garment District stands, then Cambridge will lose part of what makes this a great city: History.
By making the building a historical landmark, the store will continue to strive and keep running throughtout our present generation and our future generation to come.
The influence of television has greatly effected the way youths today think. Minority athletes are publicized more and they are greatly influencing the younger generation.
Tennis has become a very popular sport for young minorities, especially with the popularity of the William sisters. Yes, there have been others before them but these sisters have given new hope to a more vocal and can do generation.
The resources are here, we just need to make sure that they are well maintained. On Front Street there are numerous tennis courts and they can be reserved. There is also an unused tennis court at Harris Park. The only problem with the court at Harris Park is that it needs resurfacing. There are still barriers that need to be broken. Minorities are somewhat intimidated by the uptown park and would feel more comfortable in a more familiar setting.
It takes time to properly build self esteem, and a familiar setting helps the process. The resurgence of an old park would bring back some old memories as well as starting new ones. Remember the old saying "Let's put the spark back in Harris Park".
Children deserve the chance to experience new things. For some it is a chance to something new for others it could be a tool used to open a new door. Many children today are either running the streets or hanging around the house eating and not exercising. They are getting lazy, heavy and very disrespectful.
Tennis lessons offer; structured guidance, physical endurance, the chance to meet new people, and really learn a new sport. Tennis lessons are also available for older youths and adults. Your signature and cooperation are greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
The N, the cable network here in the United States which airs the Canadian television show Degrassi:Then Next Generation, is refusing to air the first two episodes of the new season. Due to the nature of the episodes, in which Manny, 15, becomes pregnant with Craig's, 16, baby and decides that abortion is the way to go. Although it is a touchy subject, it is also a very real subject for today's youth. The show has dealt with sexuality, rape, cutting, child abuse, death and drug abuse, among other topics.
Pregnancy, abortion and the side effects of both, only seem like the next step for the show. With this petetion, we hope to show The N, that there is a need to show these ommited episodes.
A petition calling for the return of our Electricity Generation, Delivery and Billing to Public Ownership.
If you are tired of all the belly aching of the "blame everyone but yourself" generation join with me to save the Super Size menu at McDonald's. This is bigger then just the fries, it's about putting our foot down and saying we are tired of how our culture wants to blame everything and everyone for their problems. If you are an overweight teen, maybe it is because you sit around playing video games all the time and are too lazy to get up and go outside.
Nissan Skylines are phenomnomial cars, but now they are only sold on Motorex Importers, and a GTR34/33 V-Spec costs 80,000+. These cars were so good, they were banned in Autralina V8 Races, and much more. So they had to make the JGTC or Japan Grand Touring Championship. They cost 50,000 dollars in Japan, but Motorobbers sell the GT-R R34 for $100,000. They should be sold in Nissan Delarships.
Socialism has come about because a few people not in touch with reality think the world can be totally peaceful if we become a one world order, have no use for currency, everyone gets the same amount of everything, people work for humanity instead of money, and are totally against war and death. Granted this is a list of a few things that the world socialist movement has planned, it's still enough to put me up in arms.
The Socialists believe that if the world is one nation there won't be segregation or hate between people. They don't realize we will always have segregation even if not forced as it is the way it has always been. We as humans instinctly group with the people who we fit in with and no matter how much they wish everyone could get along, it just won't happen. A socialist world would only work if everyone thought and acted the same, which we don't. We all have different opinions on what is right and wrong and thus we do not think alike but in some common ways.
In a socialist world we would have to ban religion, sports, television, movies, art, music, and opinions in general. I brought this point up with a socialist once and he said that was stupid and absurd and that there would be no reason to do such a thing. Let me tell you, I am from Gainesville, Florida home of the Florida Gators and our rival is Florida State. When the two teams play eachother the fans become like soldiers with their team being the general.
The same applies for everything and thus hatred is born. It is IMPOSSIBLE to live in a nation without segregation, hate, and death no matter how much you would like to think differently.
As I also mentioned they think everyone should be given the same amount of personal belongings as the next person and health care should be given to everyone. Granted I agree with the latter statement I also realize that if we have six and a half billion healthy people walking around this world and no one dies off, the next generation is going to be huge and the following generation will be larger and keep in mind you still have the original six and a half billion people on the planet too. The world would fill up fast. The socialist solution to this is to move to other planets. Yeah great so we destroy the galaxy so we can keep growing in numbers instead of moderating our birth habits.
The socialists like to think they have the problems of the world solved but the fact is their method is just as destructive and they don't even realize it. So I ask that we stop acknowledging Socialism as a form of goverment as all it is is a sublime. It's a beautiful idea but deadly at the same time and just not practical. Please sign this petition to end the socialist movement.
