When my friend gave me her canary before she moved, I was pretty happy. I have always loved animals, but I am never home enough to have a dog or cat. Having a bird though would be perfect for me because I would not need to be there nonstop like I would another pet. When she gave me the canary and cage, I was surprised that the bird was not very vocal. Actually, the bird was not vocal at all. That is why she gave me a canary songs MP3 to go along with the bird and cage.
She had no idea why the bird was not into singing, but she thought it might be because she was separated from her family when she was still too young. I was confused by this, so I did some research of my own. I had no idea that canaries learn to sing by mimicking what they hear from their mother and other birds around them.

I got a new job, just moved here the other day and had to look around at some peoria il apartments. My job is sort of related to Caterpillar in a lot of ways. This is where they have a lot of their big plants and I am working for a company that deals in their products. My job is to inspect things that go into specialized products. We do not sell the ordinary heavy construction equipment, but instead we make specialized gear for certain industries. It is not to say we actually make any of it. Other people make all of the parts and we ship it to the client, which is usually a company up in the Tundra of Canada or the former regions of the Soviet Union. It is a lot more fun to be on this end of the job, that is something I can tell you with total and great certainty. I know it from experience.
Of course the other part of the job is to get some gargantuan piece of construction equipment out into the middle of nowhere, a frozen nowhere half of the time and the other part of the time it is a fiery burning nowhere. Either way you are usually miserable and there is not often a woman for a couple hundred miles or anything that might qualify as entertainment or a decent meal. I do like to be able to go out for a beer or nice meal and I definitely like having women to talk to once in a while. In particular I miss the stuff that reminds you of home, an NFL game on Sunday afternoons and baseball games on a Saturday in Summer. The stuff that you would do if you were home like grabbing a burger.
Since the beginning of the human race one thing has been a constant on the human experience; sex. Throughout much of that time the focus has generally been on men and what they wanted/needed but then came the 20th century and the sexual revolution. While sex as a business has always been geared towards men it was generally the women who got all the toys because, after all, men aren’t too complicated and women are the best sex toy there is. sex toys have seen a considerable rise in the last 2 decades partly because there is always a market for sex related goods but also because men have become more discriminating in what they are looking for.

Of course I am going to graduate at this end of this school year, so I am almost out of time to have the sort of fun you can have when you are not an adult. It would be smart for me to take a couple of classes this summer, but that would not be any fun. Instead I found a summer job down on the coast. It is right off of one of the beaches near Corpus Christi. I have been trying to figure out how much apartments in Corpus Christi Texas are going to cost, because obviously I am going to want to spend all my money on having fun. I was thinking about trying to borrow this camper trailer from my uncle Jack, but I am pretty sure that he would only laugh in my face. That would be really ideal if I could figure out how to get him to go along with the idea. Continue reading I Got a Summer Job on the Coast
I recently graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering and I am trying to put myself in to a position to get a good job as quickly as possible. As such, I am trying to study information that will help me to be a better engineer, once I get a job, with the hopes that I can advance quickly in the company that hires me. I want to get some help with understanding how to use RC Spreadsheets v4. I mean I get the basics of how to use them, but there are some things that I need cleared up.
I want to study these a lot, because they could be very useful to me in my future, and I know that they are very powerful in the hands of an experienced engineer. Being that I am not an experienced engineer, that does not imply that I can’t use these spreadsheets. Rather, I think that they will be a great learning tool to help me to learn more about Eurocode specifications and what it takes to make designs that are to code standards. It should also help me learn more about effective design in general.
I know I have a lot to learn with regards to that, and so I am going to try to study hard and learn more and more every day. I don’t have a job yet, but if I can learn this material, it should make me a better job candidate than some of my peers who have not taken the time to expand their education after graduating. Any edge that I can get over the competition is positive in my view, because there is often a lot of competition for getting goods jobs with an engineering degree, and so I have to take it upon myself to differentiate myself from the crowd.
I really did not think too much about how I was going to live when I got here. It was a real chore for me to get into this school and I just barely managed to convince them to let me. I was thinking that I might be able to stay with one of my cousins for a little while, but he was not interested in that kind of deal. It was not that close to the campus either and it turns out that this is really important. I have to look at apartments near Emory University because of the traffic and the difficulty of finding a place to park once you reach the campus. Continue reading Looking for a Place Near the Campus
Living with a person who is on alcohol or drugs is something that would cause anyone to have fear. You never know what that person is going to do at any moment. At one point, they may be calm and cool, and the next they may flip out and lash out at you, even if you did nothing to them. My husband uses both alcohol and drugs, and he’s lashed out at me multiple times. One time he even broke my arm. I feared for my life, and went to http://bentleyapts.com to move into an apartment because I couldn’t take the abuse any longer.
I wished that my husband would get those demons out of his body, and hoped that he would become the way he was when I first met him, but I wasn’t going to stick around for this to happen. Continue reading Seeking Shelter Away from the Madness
I came up with the idea of starting a local bsuiness that could repair electronic items and repurpose old technology for people. For my business, I needed to find Singapore office space for rent. The office would be my main base of operations. I planned to fill the office with tools and machines that would allow me to make various repairs. Some of the repairs would range from simply installing new parts into something, and to bigger things like removing solder connections and taking apart an entire computer. The skill to do these various tasks takes a lot of knowledge.
I looke donlione and found just the office space I needed. The space was affordable, so I contacted the owner and made an offer. The owner agreed to the price, and I had my own space. With that out of the way, I started ordering my equipment. Continue reading A Business for Computer Repair
Obviously history suggests that sanctions are ineffective when they are directed against a reasonably powerful state which is determined to stay the course. However it is actually becoming a question as to whether or not the Iranian regime may at some point decide to negotiate in good faith. The decision rests almost completely with the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamanei and thus far he has shown no willingness to yield. The Revolutionary Guards would be the next most influential entity in Iran and on the surface it would seem highly unlikely that they would be willing to compromise.
However the fundamental truth is that the Revolutionary Guards and Ali Khamanei are most concerned with safeguarding their own power. The Revolutionary Guards are in control of huge sectors of the Iranian economy and the sanctions have had a real and growing impact on that economy. Continue reading Will Sanctions Work in Iran?
The biggest news right now centers on the horrible theater shooting that occurred during the Dark Knight Rises screening in Denver. The Dark Knight Rises, which is the final chapter in director Christopher Nolans highly acclaimed Batman trilogy, was definitely the most anticipated movie of the summer. The Dark Knight was one of the most beloved blockbuster films of all time, even earning a post-humous Academy Award for Heath Ledger, and fans were waiting with baited breath fro the finale of Nolan’s Batman re-imagining.
I was very excited for The Dark Knight Rises as well, as I have always been a huge batman fan for as long as I can remember. Continue reading The Latest in Worldwide News and Politics
