It has been 6 years-SMOKE FREE - November 18, 2005

Six years ago today, I quit smoking and It is feels great. I quit "cold turkey". I made a $100 on-going bet with my buddy David Ross around this time six years ago right before his wedding. I was Dave's best man and now the god-father of his son Jackson David Ross. He returned the favor by being my best man in my wedding 4 month ago. Smoking was the hardest thing for me to give up. I found that "slamming" a jug of water to the point of satiety helped me finally kick the habit. Anywho...good luck to those trying....

What is SETI@home?-try it - July 21, 2005

What is SETI@home?
SETI@home is a scientific experiment that harnesses the power of hundreds of thousands of Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You participate by running a free program or "client" that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data. Since the start of the project, more than 4.5 million users have downloaded the SETI@home client, and at this time more than 500,000 users are actively participating. SETI@home is now holds the Guinness World Record for the largest computation ever done on earth -- more than 1,500,000 CPU-years of computing time have been accumulated. The latest total statistics are available from the SETI@home web site.

$20 and the fly Save $13.50 - July 15, 2005

I am sitting here at Mile High Coffee in Englewood, CO and I just happen to observe some guy looking at my disc on the shelf and upon seeing the price of my disc, low and behold! and he shrugs his shoulders in slight disgust wincing at the price of $20. His buddy states, "what's up?" The other states, Some guy trying to rip some one off....Awesome!.....
This happens to be my first experience on being a fly on the wall. He did not know or maybe did that I was sitting across from him. Anywho, for all of yens who think I am trying to rip you off, please go to iTunes and download the whole disc for $6.50. Save $13.50

make it a great day ;-'0)

.p.s.except from a very good article from Derek Silver of CDBABY
...People aren't as price-sensitive, and there's even a feeling that prices too low are just stupid & pointless, since they're OK with paying more. Might even be a cultural bias so that if a CD is selling for $10-$15 it's assumed there's something wrong with it.....YES I KNOW WE ARE NOT IN JAPAN...


Nic Harcourt has a gift!... - July 14, 2005

H5N1 - July 11, 2005

H5N1 avian strain expected to become next viral pandemic
The World Health Organization is to be applauded for its efforts to try to ramp up product of vaccines to protect people from the coming flu pandemic. Despite their best intentions, however, the world isn't ready for such a viral outbreak. Should such an epidemic actually occur soon, millions of people will likely be killed while waiting for vaccines. There simply isn't enough flu vaccine production to go around.
Smart consumers will turn to immune boosting strategies that rely on boosting their flu immunity rather than vaccinations. A tremendous number of anti-viral vitamins, minerals, Amazon herbs, Chinese herbs, and nutritional supplements are available right now to boost immune system function and fight off viral infections (including the H5N1 strain). As far as vitamins and minerals go, the two best defenders against viral infections are vitamin C and zinc. In the world of herbs, echinacea and astragalus have earned a strong reputation as virus fighters. A wide assortment of foods also help boost immune system function: foods like garlic, ginger and onions.

In fact, surviving the next pandemic need not depend on vaccines at all. Healthy individuals can survive the pendemic merely by dramatically boosting immune system function and supplementing with anti-viral herbs as well as powerful antioxidants (see related ebook on antioxidants) like astaxanthin.


Toronto --- The world is at an unprecedented time in the history of influenza with the threat posed by the current widespread outbreak of the H5N1 avian strain in Asia, a conference on global infectious diseases was told Tuesday.
Few tools exist to contain the virus, which has decimated poultry stocks across broad swaths of Asia and has defied the experts by jumping directly --- and with lethal impact --- into several species of mammals, including humans.
"We're very limited in what we can do for this virus," Dr. David Heymann of the World Health Organization told participants at the two-day conference, organized by the University of Toronto and St. Michael's Hospital's Centre for Global Health Research.
"This virus is rapidly spreading around the world, the fear of course being that H5N1 from chickens will enter a human and.
reassort to form a human influenza virus which will then have genetic characteristics of a human virus, spread rapidly around the world and cause deaths," said Dr. Heymann, executive director of the WHO's communicable diseases division.
The process Dr. Heymann was referring to would mark the start of a new influenza pandemic, an event most flu researchers believe is both inevitable and overdue.
The longest period between pandemics has been 30 to 40 years, noted Dr. Allison McGeer, an infectious diseases specialist at Toronto's Mount Sinai Hospital.
The last pandemic was 36 years ago, the Hong Kong flu of 1968.
The spectre of a pandemic with the extraordinarily virulent H5N1 strain is making for sleepless nights in the community of influenza researchers.
Experts say the best hope to contain the damage would be vaccine, but vaccine takes months to make.
