Facebook's Top Ten Reasons Why It Is Impossible to Challenge Google

Recently, the network edition of the famous American it magazine EWEEK pointed out that at present, Facebook has about 500 million users around the world. It provides users with open graph tools to challenge Google's dominance in the online search market, but this is only Meili's dream. Here are ten reasons why Facebook can't shake Google:

1. Google is too big

Previously, Facebook used the open map technology agreement to put the relevant contents (including links) of cooperative websites such as tripadvisor.com into Facebook search results, which means that website enterprises such as tripadvisor.com have begun to cooperate more closely with Facebook. The above practices are somewhat similar to those of Google at that time, but Google occupies 65% of the market share in the domestic market of the United States alone, and its influence in the global market is also very large. Google's own influence and scale have made Facebook unable to challenge it at all.

2. Bing can't beat Google. Who else can do it?

Microsoft's Bing search has been online for more than a year. Although its market share has increased from 8% to 10%, it has also paid a huge price. In this process, Google can be said to be "unharmed".

3. People are not ready to use social network search

The whole market has high hopes for social network search business, but persuading netizens to really use the search function of social network has not seen the ideal effect.

4. Netizens still have a single idea of choosing search tools

At present, people only want to use Facebook to search for friends or celebrities, and they only use Google to search general news on the Internet.

5. The search experience is not satisfactory

Facebook's search experience is not as good as Google's, and the search results have no characteristics compared with Google.

6. Unable to provide search services comparable to Google

It's not enough for Facebook to add partner links to search results. More importantly, it can bring users a perfect service experience, but this is also one of the most difficult projects.

7. Insufficient data

The survey shows that Facebook's share in the online search market is increasing year by year, but it can't be "compared" with Google, even Yahoo and Bing because it can't get enough data support.

8. Lack of talents

Facebook has previously dug many "corners" of Google, but Google still has about 700 engineers focused on the research and development of web search business. In contrast, Facebook has too few talents in this field.

9. Lack of search engine optimization (SEO)

If users don't get a satisfactory SEO service here, they won't allow Facebook to connect search content to their website. In this way, Facebook is even more unable to compete with Google.

10. Facebook's main business is not search business. At present, it still hopes that its search business can develop healthily and naturally. In fact, they have no idea of challenging Google's search hegemony.

The Clipper Makes Her Rounds
“You’d be amazed at what people walk around with,” said Serena Merrill.Ms. Merrill should know. Since 2008, she has been a foot care nurse for the elderly in and around West Stockbridge, Mass., and she has seen feet with every kind of problem you can imagine — and quite a few you’d probably rather not. For example: “A lot of men who were in World War II have had fungal nails since the 1940s from the trenches.”Since the 1940s? “Fungus is hard to get rid of,” Ms. Merrill said. Many older women also have this persistent condition, which renders nails yellow or even black, thick and misshapen, and tough to cut. But that’s hardly the only foot problem the elderly may experience: There are the corns, calluses, bunions and twisted toes, too, not to mention the damage caused by years of wearing too-pointy, too-tight, too-high heels. For the elderly especially, the feet can be one of the most neglected and abused parts of the body; simply clipping the nails can be impossible. “When you get old, your eyesight is not as good and you can’t bend down very easily, so you can poke yourself with the scissors,” said Dorothy Elsberg, 90, a former violinist for the Women’s Boston Symphony in Lenox, Mass.That can be hazardous for older patients, especially for those with diabetes. A slip of the clippers can lead to an infection that they may not notice until there’s serious damage. Surprisingly, nurses often can’t help with this caregiving task — they are not allowed to clip patients’ nails in medical facilities. Only in the past six years has there been a certification for nurses specializing in foot care. So every six weeks or so, Ms. Elsberg gets her toenails clipped by Ms. Merrill, who charges $45 for the house call. Elderly patients often are embarrassed by their feet, Ms. Merrill has found. “They’re ashamed,” she said. “They worry their feet are stinky or weird-looking.” And so they put off foot care until the problem becomes pressing. “People come to me with ingrown toenails or corns so painful they can’t walk any more,” she said. Handling people’s feet — cutting and filing nails, inspecting and healing every bump and rough patch, rubbing on lotion and massaging them — certainly sounds like one of caregiving’s less pleasant tasks. But the foot care ritual can also bring deep connections. “It’s sort of like being at the hairdresser for them – it’s amazing what will come out,” Ms. Merrill said. “Men will tell me their war stories and say, ‘Gee, I haven’t talked to anybody about this in years.'”One 85-year-old woman told Ms. Merrill about her husband, who went off to World War II with a major-league baseball career lined up, but lost a leg and came back to nothing. “She still got all teared up even though he died 20 years ago,” Ms. Merrill recalled.“When you get a smile and they walk away on top of the world, that’s pretty great,” Ms. Merrill added. “You don’t get that too much in nursing nowadays.” Marge Piercy, an award-winning poet and novelist, alludes to the emotional power that touching feet can evoke in “The Tao of Touch.” It’s a story Ms. Piercy heard from her own foot care nurse, and possibly the only poem in the English language to mention this profession (if you know of another, please tell us): What magic does touch createthat we crave it so. That babiesdo not thrive without it.

There were plenty of fast large engine cars before this but 1964 signalled the beginning of a horsepower war that continued until the gas crisis of 1973. The Pontiac GTO with a tripower in 1964. The Ford Mustang debued in the New York World's fair April 1964 but the factory called the car a 1965 model, Chevy had a Corvette since 1954 but initially it only had a 6 cylinder and when they put a V8 in the car in became a muscle car but the factory referred to it as a sports car. Loosely speaking a sports car was supposed to be fast but had great handling. A muscle car was all engine (handling be damned!) So some people might say that even with a tri-power 427 big block the Corvette might still be a Sports car not a muscle car. Whereas a Mustang with only a 289 was definitely a muscle car. In terms of longevity the Corvette goes back longest but in terms of units sold the Ford Mustang far and away would have sold the most. So, using that as my definition I would say that the Ford Mustang would hold the title of most popular of all-time. You could ask what is the most desirable today. That is very different because that factors in rarity. One car that comes to mind for that title is the 1972-73 Hemi Cuda convertible 4 speed. There were maybe a dozen of these made. Why? because they were not big selling cars. The 426 Hemi was a better engine on the track then the 440. However for the street the 475 HP hemi was detuned to 405 HP whereas the much cheaper 440 was making 375 HP but it ran so much smoother. Most buyers back then wanted an automatic transmission. Most buyers wanted air conditioning not a convertible. Even the incredibly valuable Mercedes 300SL and the Shelby Cobras which go for $1 million these days sat in dealers show rooms unsold back in their day.— — — — — —Nice looking sports car/convertible for a teenage girl?I thought girls like BMWs, and yup it's just a suggestion, for your price range, you could get a bmw(any bmw is nice looking sport car), nissan Z 2004 and up, Mini Cooper, but if your looking for cars similar to the vette we would be talking ferrari lambos type of body and your price range is not there, so you either pick the vette or go with camaro,3series,z350
Describing a 'Sanctuary' As in a Safe Place and Not a Shrine Or Church?
what word would you use to describe a properly non-religious safe-placeMaybe these might work:Or maybe phrases that are more descriptively literal:But... and cleverly names the building in Japanese as to allow it to hide in the openDescribing and naming are not the same so...I guess we should not start with such a non-hidden term like as you suggested. If the society persecutes atheists then it hardly makes sense to have words directly describing atheists in the name.Also, hiding while using and as part of the name, is not really hiding.I suppose you could name it anything if the intent is to be hidden and not overt or advertised. Like how speakeasies during the prohibition era would not have their signboard on the outside naming themselves something like "sanctuary for alcohol".Then it depends on whether the place is a publicly recognised safe-house or if it's a clandestine one. If it's a secret, then I suppose the answer to your question is now quite subjective and you get to choose a codeword of your choice.1. Why do women have such a powerful & biased sheep mentality towards their own gender?We love to love :) Girls just want to have fun, and grow up to be women that want to make it fun for everyone.

I tried on other dresses to make sure it was REALLY The One and was not just the shock of it being the first dress, but after every dress I tried on, I could not get my mind off that first one :]. Amazingly, it was originally $800 marked down to NINETY-NINE DOLLARS!!!! Thank God for David's Bridal hahaha.

And I am not going to let that stop me from feeding my dogs a healthy diet so they can be in top shape.5. Why do American Socialists always use Europe as an example and not Japan for a successful Socialist society?Remember, Japan is a nation, and a very homogenous one at that while Europe is a continent comprised of over 40 nations, with their own languages, dominant religions, tax structures, gun laws, etc. Ireland is part of Europe, and so is Sweden, but they are very different6.

The Intriguing History of the Black Madonna'
The US artist Theaster Gates explores the concept of the 'Black Madonna' in his latest exhibition, which celebrates images of powerful black women. Alastair Sooke finds out more. Most people coming face to face for the first time with Dutch artist Maerten van Heemskerck's 16th-Century oil painting of the Virgin and Child, at the Kunstmuseum Basel in Switzerland, would see a perfectly conventional picture: before an imaginary landscape meant to evoke Mediterranean antiquity, a seated blonde Mary, her plaited hair draped in orange cloth, glances at the viewer, while the Christ child fidgets on her lap, ignoring his mother's exposed breast. So far, so traditional. For the celebrated 44-year-old US artist Theaster Gates, however, Van Heemskerck's painting is charged with surprising significance. "Christ has turned away from his mom's milk, and is looking dubious and devious," he tells BBC Culture. "Meanwhile, Mary is the image of a harlot, with come-hither eyes. I call her 'The Ghetto Madonna'." Gates's 'reading' may be unorthodox, even provocative - in particular, his assertion that Van Heemskerck's Virgin "is an octoroon, ie one-eighth black" is bound to make art historians start harrumphing. But it is typical of the way his deft mind works, making startling, unforeseen connections between disparate things. We are standing before Van Heemskerck's panel because Gates - who hails from Chicago and has won international acclaim for his renovations of dilapidated buildings in the city's South Side neighbourhood - has hung it at the start of Black Madonna, his new solo exhibition at the Kunstmuseum, which will run until October. According to Gates, a thoughtful, charismatic presence who began his artistic career as a potter, the exhibition "weaves back and forth from religious adoration to political manifesto to self-empowerment to historical reflection". It makes for a complex but intoxicating mix. Consider, for instance, how Gates presents 'The Ghetto Madonna', which he calls the "anchor" of the show. It appears alongside a disturbing video, by Gates, looping clips from a 1935 film, The Littlest Rebel - in which Shirley Temple, playing the daughter of a plantation-owning family during the American Civil War, appears in blackface. Next to this, we see a large photograph of a beautiful young black woman, her face framed by pretty, white lace, reproducing a vintage shot from a 20th-Century lifestyle magazine pitched at African-Americans. "So, here are three 'Black Madonnas'," Gates tells me, with a smile. Like a virginThe inclusion of Van Heemskerck's painting alludes to the so-called 'Black Madonna' in Western art history. Conventionally, of course, Mary appears in painting and sculpture as a young mother with white skin. Sometimes, however, she appears with a dark or black face and hands - and this Black Madonna fascinates Gates, whose work interrogates the legacy of the civil-rights movement and the experience of black people in the US today. In the past, for instance, he has made a series of artworks out of decommissioned fire hoses called In the Event of a Race Riot. Meanwhile, his show in Basel - staged across two of the museum's venues - contains one of his dramatic black tar paintings, inspired by his father's hard-graft work as a roofer (his mother was a schoolteacher): every aspect of the artwork, from the glossy bitumen applied with a large mop, to the copper nails used to secure the picture to its support, conforms to traditional roofing techniques. "It doesn't leak," says Gates, with another smile. Examples of the Black Madonna may be found all over the world. According to some estimates, there are around 500 Black Madonnas in Europe alone, mostly Byzantine icons and statues in Catholic and Orthodox countries. A monastery in the city of Czestochowa in southern Poland, for instance, contains a dark-skinned Byzantine icon of the Holy Virgin. Meanwhile, a shrine in Einsiedeln Abbey, a Benedictine monastery around 25 miles (40km) southeast of Zurich in Switzerland, boasts a miraculous Black Madonna statue, its skin possibly darkened from centuries of exposure to candle smoke. Gates has also encountered a Black Madonna in a Greek Orthodox monastery on the island of Heybeliada, near Istanbul. "There are lots of stories," says Gates, who is a professor of visual arts at the University of Chicago. He isn't the only contemporary artist drawn to the subject: in 1996, British artist Chris Ofili painted his controversial Holy Virgin Mary, depicting a sensual black Mary in a blue robe, against an orange background, with a lump of elephant dung in place of her bare breast. "Once," continues Gates, "there was a fire in France, and the Madonna there smote the fire, and ingested the trauma. It wasn't that she was charred, but there was something about the trauma that made her black. I'm curious about this idea: could a 'Black Madonna' simply be a white Madonna with trauma? In other words, do Madonnas 'mature' towards blackness because of something bad happening?"It's an intriguing, unsettling notion - but, says Gates, who has two degrees in urban planning, he isn't interested in the 'history' of the Black Madonna so much as the "lived experience of those who worship her". "I got super-curious about [Our Lady of] Guadalupe," he says, referring to a famous full-length representation of a mixed-race Mary in a shrine in Mexico City. He also set out to discover more about Yemoja, a Yoruba deity sometimes viewed as an equivalent of the Virgin Mary, and "the role of the black woman in Haitian voodoo". 'Beautiful, powerful women'Gates says that his interest in the Black Madonna stems from his experiences growing up. He was raised in a Christian household, the youngest of nine children, and the only boy. "I was born in a house of love," he tells me, "surrounded by earthly Madonnas." Aged 13, Gates became director of the youth choir at his church. Is he still a believer? He pauses before replying: "I definitely have a stronger belief capacity than most, as a result of having been brought up religious." He no longer attends church every Sunday, he says, but he does have a gospel-inspired band called the Black Monks of Mississippi (who performed in Basel to mark the opening of his new show). "Having the capacity to believe in things is what artists do," Gates tells me. "Like, I believe that the ugly can be beautiful. I have an amazing belief muscle." When he was 19 years old, Gates visited relatives in Detroit, where he came across the Shrine of the Black Madonna - a church once described by The New York Times as "an important centre for black theology and political power". It was founded in 1967, in the wake of the decade's urban race riots, by the religious leader Albert Cleage. "The proposition," explains Gates, "was that the mother of God was black, therefore Christ was black, and so we were connected to this long lineage of powerful people." As a teenager, Gates found this idea exciting. "It was very radical," he says.Another important, related strand of Gates's Black Madonna exhibition concerns the photographic archive of the Johnson Publishing Company (JPC), which, since 1945, has published the monthly magazine Ebony, conceived as an equivalent of Life magazine for an African-American market. Gates says that copies of Ebony and its sister magazine Jet, modelled on Reader's Digest, could be found "all over my house" when he was growing up: "They were a kind of encyclopaedia of everyday black life."At the Kunstmuseum Basel, Gates has constructed an elegant, saltire-shaped wooden cabinet containing more than 2,600 images of black women from the archives of JPC, which the artist describes as "the most important black publishing company to have ever existed". Many of the images present beautiful models dressed in glamorous clothes - but there are also photographs of 'ordinary' women engaged in domestic activities such as cooking or looking after children. "I wanted to celebrate black female images in the collection," explains Gates, who considers the "beautiful, powerful women" who appear in the cabinet as 'Black Madonnas', ie "everyday women who do miraculous things". "At the heart of it," he continues, "I was super-interested in how powerful women in and around my life seem to be a solution that the world is never looking for." This, says Gates, is the nub of his new exhibition. "So many of the challenges in this world are brought on by men," he tells me. "Sometimes I wonder: if women had the position they deserved [in society], would things be the same? Would we be as greedy, as corrupt, as non-caring, as warring? Those are the questions on my mind."Alastair Sooke is The Telegraph's Critic-at-LargeIf you would like to comment on this story or anything else you have seen on BBC Culture, head over to our Facebook page or message us on Twitter.And if you liked this story, sign up for the weekly bbc.com features newsletter, called "If You Only Read 6 Things This Week".

Not always a fun place to be in, is it? You do need to talk it over with him, but not in a confrontational way or a way that may make him worry that he's not satisfying you at all. Tell him how much you enjoy making love and that you would like to do so more often. Perhaps it's timing and life stress that's getting in the way? I know sometimes our lives are very hectic with kids and careers and just plain exhaustion. We were becoming one of those "Saturday night" couples until I took the bull by the horns and had the talk with him. He did not see it as a burden at all, but as an opportunity to reset our priorities. Trust me, if you have a loving marriage and want to express that love more often, your hubby will be on board with you to make it happen. ;) If he's too tired, there are other ways for him to satisfy you and you should explore these avenues.

Skin Care Products That Work Well For...?
I bought Neutrogena Acne Mark Fading Peel today. I just used it for the first time tonight but I've heard good things. It costs about $12 at cvs. Other people say cocoa butter works, vitamin e oil, mederma, neutrogena visibly even, and bio oil. Its all about what you want to try. Good luck!.1. im a preteen, so how can I earn money so I can buy own stuff such as, skin care products , and makeup?babysit dog walk paper/flyer route shouldnt your mom buy you skin care? garage sale allowance lawn care working in library bake sales water plants house sit washing cars2. Tips on healthy habits(food,exercise etc) please?Actually, in these polluted times, you are better off using makeup than not using it. Just be sure and wash it off like religion every night. Almost any brand is ok, find the type for your skin type, oily, dry, whatever. L'Oreal is great. The same company makes Lancome. Neutrogena makes a great line of skin care products, whether oily or dry. Shampoo and conditioner? Pantene is probably the best for the bucks. And deodorant? I like Secret. And if you are talking about "feminine hygiene" deodorant, DON"T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT - there has been a direct link between the use of those and ovarian cancer. That area of your body naturally cleanses itself3. Why are there different face/skin care products for men/women?First of all, there are different products used for different types of skin. I would never ever buy a skin product directed to only men or only woman because most of the time that means it has fragrance in it which is a deff. skin irritant!4. Do skin care products like neutrogena and proactiv work? ?look up "tea tree oil" it is all natural and really works. I really recommend this5. What should I look for in skin care products?Garnier Pure Active :) Hope it works6. Good skin care products for red skin?I have the same problem! I use Eucerin Redness Relief underneath my foundation and it help a lot. I am pretty sure you can get it at Walmart. And as for the eyelids i do not really know but i guess you could put it on their too. :)7. What is the best moisturizer for the eye area that's organic & for younger, dry skin?Moisturizers or beauty products DOES NOT prevent you from getting wrinkles. Sorry! Beauty Enemy #1: Parabens Parabens are preservatives used in most store-bought cleansing and beauty products. Parabens are also estrogen mimickers. This means that these toxins act to increase the production estrogen in your body. Over a dozen university studies have linked these parabens to BREAST CANCER, increased body weight in the form of belly and thigh fat, and accelerated aging, specifically women between the ages of 22 and 67. Beauty Enemy #2: Nanos Nanos may sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, but for your skin, they are scarier than a horror movie. Nanos cause a normal skin cell growth to break down, which results in early wrinkling, and DEEPENING THE WRINKLES you already have. Here's the shocking part: nanos are usually found in anti-aging skin lotions. It's scary that the creams we ladies are using to look younger can actually make us look older! Nanos are also found in the majority of sunscreen lotions, so beware. FYI: In the beauty industry, there is no industry-agreed meaning for terms like 'organic' or 'natural'. Unlike the food industry, these terms are not regulated for cosmetics which means companies can use these terms pretty freely. Also, products like shampoo, conditioner and body wash are mostly made of water so therefore are mostly natural (because water is natural, right?). So if a shampoo is 90% water, then a company can simply claim "90% organic or natural" and be telling the truth. Certainly, this is not in the spirit of what people believe organic to mean, but it is within the law. Do not believe the hype: "For skin care products, 'organic is not enough,. Some organic products are fabulous, and some are not." Dr. Lisa Chipps , M.D. specializes in removing skin cancer & repairing the resultant wound (laser therapy whiz) in Rodeo Drive. "Organic skin care products are trendy, but that does not mean nonorganic ones are dangerous," Wendy E. Roberts, M.D. past president of the Women's Dermatologic Society. Glamour May 2012 Example 100% additive-free natural tobacco, labeling as required by the FDA: Organic tobacco does NOT mean a safer cigarette. No additives in our tobacco does NOT mean a safer cigarette. Are cosmetics made with "organic" ingredients safer for consumers than those made with ingredients from other sources? No. An ingredient's source does not determine its safety. For example, many plants, whether or not they are organically grown, contain substances that may be toxic or allergenic. For more on this subject, see FDA Poisonous Plant Database. Under the FD&C Act, all cosmetic products and ingredients are subject to the same safety requirement: They must be safe for consumers under labeled or customary conditions of use (FD&C Act, section 601(a). Companies and individuals who market cosmetics have a legal responsibility to ensure that their products and ingredients are safe for the intended use. Example: "That's what I get for trying out an organic shampoo / conditioner containing eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil, peppermint oil and a bunch of other ingredients, plus it's also 100% paraben, 100% sulfate free, one of which I am apparently allergic to. Back to the chemicals!" Showing photo of her rash, around her neck, face, etc. When I started using body wash that was 100% natural, paraben free, grapefruit scent, every thing was ok until it was 3/4 empty that I started feeling itchy & nauseated I could no longer stand using it, I just started rinsing off the min. I put it on, & got rid of the bottle.. GOOD skin care, GOOD genes, AND good healthy diet from Mother Nature, not products made by man, and avoiding the sun & avoiding soaking in the tub or pool = good healthy skin. SENSITIVE SKIN? Skip the gels and waterproof formulas. They contain more alcohol, as well as an ingredient called propylene glycol, which many people are allergic to. Water just can not get in (sunscreen for ex.) but sweat also can not get out - which can cause breakouts. If your SKIN IS DRY, use a good sunscreen. Best sunscreen: wear dark, thicker clothing, floppy hat,, or sun clothing embedded with UPF 50, or umbrella (which protects you up to 80% of the UV rays that cause sun damage penetrate clouds, according to the EPA).. They were invented to protect us from the elements. Your hair suffers also, so cover your hair before leaving the house. Use hats, scarves, bandanas or umbrella to protect your hair from harmful rays. During winter, floppy hat, gloves, scarves, jacket are your best sunscreen. Think 1930's fashion.

What Is Your Best Defense Against Joy?
Soften our hearts like a meat tenderizerCriticizing is a cozy defense against joy.It's a strategy that we use to protect our egos and assert our intelligence and make ourselves feel strong.When really, we are just attached to our own cleverness. Hanging onto it like a life preserver, believing that without it we will surely drown.After all, who are we without all of our brilliant remarks and precious opinions? We simply must be spectacular to be safe in this world. We simply must play our special role as the insightful outsider who observes and judges everything. Otherwise we will be forgotten and left behind.The other option is to choose. To surrender into the moment. To ease into our humanity. And to allow the world to soften our hearts like a meat tenderizer.It's a much more vulnerable place to be, but as long as we suspend our critical minds long enough, joy can have free reign. Bruyere, the famous moralist and philosopher, once said that the pleasure of criticizing robs us of the pleasure of being moved by some very fine things.And so, the choice is always ours.We can enjoy the things other people create, without the compulsive need to spot check everything for imperfections and inconsistencies.We can cry and let our tears honor the things we love, without draining everything of its power to affect us. We can allow ourselves to experience the aesthetic arrest of beauty, without always asserting our opinions and judgments.It depends how vulnerable we are willing to be. Sure, it's much easier to be a critic than a celebrator. But then again, how many critics do you remember from the last century?The point is, enjoying is one of those gifts we give to ourselves. And so, next time you reach for your critical arrow, consider making yourself open, raw, tender and real by loving something instead.LET ME ASK YA THIS…* * * *Scott GinsbergThat Guy with the NametagAuthor.

Its just b/c your tall and therefore have more bone weight added in, also if your athletic you have larger muscle mass which adds weight! And also considering that you say you are "mature" that adds in as well! Its low trust me! I am sure no one will care anyway, just stay confident! Devon What are the little joys in life that everyone should experience?All the little joys in life are part of a large, infinite and eternal infinite joy.If we could find our Human purpose in life and collect, aim all the little joys along the axis leading towards that final purpose, and then all the people would also attach their little joys to it while we all make effort for sensing, appreciating each other's joys instead of our own, we could assemble and then all feel an unprecedented, infinite, never ending joy.How Can We Attain Infinite Pleasure? | Laitman. com.Why are Joy Division so revered and spoken of so highly?Having recorded 2 highly unusual, critically acclaimed, post punk rock albums, lead singer songwriter Ian Curtis commited suicide at the age of 23. The second album's cover art depicts 3 figures apparently grieving over a fourth figure lying on a bed. The band have stated that the cover was decided upon before Curtis's death and the album was released 2 months after with the title Closer. Make of that what you will. Rock has had its tragedies but nothing quite like this.Neither album was exactly easy listening but Closer had one track, A Means to an End, which was about as close to straight forward rock as they would get. The recording of the drum track was slowed and the guitar sound is sparse and distorted but it provides some light relief from tracks like Atrocity Exhibition and Decades. The shortest track on the album, Isolation, is positively sunshine filled compared to those and may be pointing the way to things to come when the band became New Order and they moved toward electronic dance music. This is one serious album which may have been lost forever if New Order had flopped but the release of Blue Monday and its massive success saw to it that Joy Division will always be remembered and revered
Roseman: Heating and Cooling Systems Can Fail in New Homes
I’m getting complaints about heating and air conditioning systems installed in brand-new homes. Buyers say it’s hard to get repairs done under warranty when the equipment doesn’t work properly. Bonnie and Don Pollock have a Keeprite air conditioning system, which they feel was faulty from the time they bought their home in St. Catharines, Ont. When they first turned on the cooling in spring 2007, they got nothing but hot air.“We placed a call to the builder, who in turn called the heating contractor who originally installed the system, Heritage Heating (Niagara),” Don said.In 2010, the builder sent Heritage Heating to fix the cooling system again. The same problem recurred in June of this year. The builder said their home warranty had expired. And the contractor said the compressor could be fixed only if they paid the labour cost ($339).“My wife and I were upset. We’d built a new home and had problems with our air conditioning system three times in a period of just over three years,” Don said. “And in that period, the system was not used very much.”Mike Dufour, a spokesman for International Comfort Products (ICP), which makes Keeprite, agreed to cover the labour cost when I contacted him.Keeprite didn’t inspect the compressor when it first broke down in 2007, Dufour said.If the manufacturer had done so, it wouldn’t have denied full compensation when the part failed again this year.Homebuilders tend to install low-cost heating and air conditioning systems, leading to premature breakdowns. Some homebuilders don’t even buy them, but rent them from an outside supplier.Bev Craddock has a five-year-old Toronto home. She was forced to sign a 10-year rental contract with morEnergy Services Inc. for heating and cooling equipment in order to close the deal.She’s had problems ever since. But she’s tried without success to get the builder and Tarion Warranty Corp. to address her complaints, such as a huge temperature difference between the basement and the top floor bedroom.Finally, she went to the License Appeal Tribunal to challenge Tarion’s decision that the rented equipment fell outside her home warranty.The tribunal agreed with her, saying that rented equipment was not excluded from home warranty coverage. It awarded her $40,000 to fix the problems.“I won, but there’s no end in sight,” she says. “Why won’t Tarion help me?”When Craddock asked why she hadn’t received the promised compensation, Tarion president Howard Bogach said he was waiting for the end of the appeal period (Nov. 21) before processing her award payment.“The matter of the rental of essential items within a home is relatively new,” Bogach wrote. “We are further examining the implications and are not in a position to completely waive our right of appeal.”Craddock feels the issue is about protecting homebuilders and Tarion from other such claims.She hired an expert, Dara Bowser of Bowser Technical Inc., who specializes in inspecting faults in residential heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.“Tarion has been aware of the problem since 2009,” he said, referring to substandard systems installed in thousands of new Ontario homes.Bowser contacted the Ontario consumer ministry, which is responsible for the legislation that governs Tarion, in August 2010. He didn’t get a response.I’d like to hear from owners of newly built homes. Did you have heating or cooling system problems that weren’t addressed by the builder and Tarion? I’ll follow up in a future column. Ellen Roseman writes about personal finance and consumer issues. You can reach her at eroseman@thestar.ca.
Oral Contraceptives and Heart Disease?
greater beneficial threat--Stroke (probable) in females who take severe-dose Oral Contraceptives and convey different stroke threat factors. Uncommonly, oral contraceptives could make contributions to greater beneficial blood tension, blood clots, coronary heart attack, and stroke1. SMOKING.... and how it contributes to heart disease?!?!?!?!?!?!?When you smoke your blood takes carbon monoxide into it. ( a similar situation would be to get into your car and put the exaust pipe in through the window! ) It is not the nicotine that is the killer but the CO. When you sleep your body renews its self. BUT if theres CO in your blood however much you rest your heart will not. It will be working super hard to rid your body of that poisionous CO, pumping so hard to get it out when it should be resting, So if you smoke for a long time just think of all the extra work your heart will have to do.then think hy it may fail 20-40 yrs down the line!.2. Could dolphins or whales transmit a disease onto a human when handled and/or consumed?There are marine parasites that can be transmitted to humankind. It isn't common to hear of it, normally it would be expected from under cooked animal foods. And that is the crux. The more you cook animal foods the worse they are for you, but the less you cook them the more likely you will get a parasite, or pathogen. Most marine life is infested with industrial pollution. BPA from plastics and various heavy metals. A strong link to autism is found to be related to marine animal products and one kind of kelp. It is recommended that women abstain from sea foods for at least 1 year prior to pregnancy. Optimally 5 years, to avoid buildup of mercury in their own bodies to pass to the unborn.Avoiding Fish for 5 Years Before PregnancyAnimal based foods are all associated with a higher risk for congestive heart disease and stroke. I don't think shellfish have LDL fats on the same level as fish or mammals, but they will still absorb the pollution.People who traditionally eat high levels of whale, seal, and marine foods in general are not found to have lower risk of heart disease, so to avoid possible disease from any animal product, including marine mammals, total abstention or limited to bi-monthly, with lots of whole foods in between to help wash out the toxins. To eliminate these possibilities altogether, more vigorous overall lifestyle adaptions need to be made. How Not to Die:.3. why are men more prone to developing coronary heart disease?Bit too obscure to offer a clever answer. Chest soreness or soreness for sure, and breathlessness. however the respond is complicated, in a male even completely unrelated indicators which includes ED could be an early marker for coronary heart sickness. in case you have any indicators that difficulty you notice your GP!.4. Are Indians more prone to heart disease?I am no medical practitioner. It is said, that as a race, indians have a slightly smaller cross- dimensional area of our blood vessels and are more susceptible and vulnerable to heart diseases. So it is all the more necessary to be extra vigilant in our activities5. Is SOY good for you? I read somewhere that until the 1940s, it was banned from human consumption.?Soy protein is a complete protein, which means it contains all nine essential amino acids. Nutrient-dense whole soybeans are low in saturated fat and are considered a superfood. Whole soy helps promote heart and bone health and other health benefits. The effects are so impressive that the U.S. government is currently spending more than 10 million dollars on research into the skeletal benefits of isoflavones, a key component of soybeans. Soy in your diet can lower cholesterol. There are many scientific studies that support this conclusion. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) agreed that 25 grams per day of soy protein, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease . Soy may also reduce symptoms of menopause and the risk of osteoporosis . Soy products may possibly prevent certain hormone-dependent cancers, including breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and prostate cancer . Not all soy protein products contain the same amount of protein. The following list ranks some popular products from greatest amount of soy protein to lowest: Soy protein isolate (added to many soy food products, including soy sausage patties and soybean burgers) Soy flour Whole soybeans Tofu The best way to find out about protein content is to look on the product's Nutrition Facts label to see the percentage of soy protein. Also look at the list of ingredients. If a product contains isolated soy protein (or soy protein isolate), the protein content should be fairly high. Some products also list how many grams of soy protein are in one serving of the product. On the other hand, there are side affects on some conditions.For individuals who are not allergic to soy, no serious short-term or long-term side effects have been reported from eating soy foods. Common mild side effects include stomach aches, constipation, and diarrhea. Soybeans also contain moderate amounts of a natural substance called purine. Purines can make gout worse. Persons with gout should not eat alot of soy products.In adults , 25 grams per day of soy protein may reduce the risk of heart disease. Soy foods and soy-based infant formula are widely used in children, but no studies have shown whether isolated soy protein or isoflavone supplements are useful or safe in this population. Therefore, isolated soy products are not recommended for children at this time.
