A new browser called Netscape 1.0 had come out and I started studying for a Ph.D. in Communications at a large university in Ohio. During the first couple of weeks of the semester, everyone wanted to get hooked up to the school‘s Internet server so they could send email around. I was the first to successfully attach. It was more dumb luck than skill. Of course, that also meant I was the first to be called when someone else couldn’t seem to make their connection. 25/05/2016 The HTML5 markup language helps you to create leading edge web pages and sites.

And he realized that developers needed their own technical “portal” — a place to cut through the marketing “noise” to get technical answers, grow skills, and try out open technologies and IBM products. 19/06/2016 16/10/2017 IBM, United States.

Christopher Galleries: Nature Imagery From The Pacific Northwest and beyond. Portland area Photographer specializing in Nature, Cityscape and Conceptual imagery for use in Corporate, Location, Product, Advertising, Editorial, Architecture and Fine Art. 30/05/2017 Jeff Black 2014. “His words and voice hold down center stage with a craft so deeply in the artistic pocket that it obscures anything outside” – No Depression. It’s the truth behind what an artist does and the way they choose to do it that defines their art. And while the ways in which audiences get their music has changed, the reasons why a certain kind of artist makes music have remained the same. Call it an uncompromising commitment, an inspired motivation, or just the need to share with and connect to those who listen. For Jeff Black, it is his life’s work that has driven him to build a career like few other singer/songwriters in the business. Boston’s WUMB listeners voted Jeff Black as one of the top 100 most important Folk artists of the last 25 years. 25/12/2017 Jenda: Journal of Culture and African Women Studies. 15/03/2017 Jerry Goldsmith Online was setup in 1999 as a fan based website to follow and support the career of the legendary composer of Radio, TV and Film.

He uses his personal connections with wild places, together with a very contemplative eye, to create his beautiful and evocative imagery. 15/03/2017 Jerry Jazz Musician.

Thusly, in three short words, do the biographers categorize this American Post-Impressionist. He came into his own as a painter relatively early in life: in his first year of study at the Art Institute of Chicago he advanced almost immediately to the Academic Life department, a process that usually took a full year of study. By his fifth year at the Institute he had earned 39 Honorable Mentions and an appointment as an instructor in the regular day and evening classes. 05/06/2018 Kronos Press was founded in March 1975 simultaneous with the creation of the journal Kronos whose Editor-in-Chief was Lewis M. Greenberg. Initially, the express purpose of Kronos Press was to publish the said journal with the intention of expanding its publishing horizon as the situation warranted. This occurred rather quickly. In 1976, Kronos Press published The Morality of nuclear Planning? by Horace Dudley as well as The Age of Velikovsky by C.J. Ransom. These two books were followed by the publication of Velikovsky and Establishment Science in 1977, plus Scientists Confront Scientists Who Confront Velikovsky in 1978. Both were special issues of the journal KRONOS. 05/06/2018 Ken Riley was involved in the photography business in many ways after successfully receiving a associate degree in specialized technology at the Ivy School of Professional Art in Pittsburgh. He started collecting cameras after both his grandmother and his father gave him old cameras that they thought he might like. Grandma gave him a Brownie No. 1 Camera. Dad’s gift was an Agfa Speedex folding camera. Ken’s interest was piqued. For nearly 20 years his gifts fueled a hobby of collecting and restoring cameras before turning his hobby into a business to help others who are interested in antique and classic cameras. 26/08/2017 10/10/2017 10/10/2017 10/10/2017 10/10/2017 10/10/2017 10/10/2017 10/10/2017 24/02/2016 Forestry in Kentucky.

History, Tales, and Destinations in the Land of Ahs. Like so many other small businesses, Legends of America started out as a hobby. Owner-Editor, Kathy Weiser-Alexander has a deep seated love for history, travel, writing, and almost anything falling within a creative realm. With this in mind, she started a small personal webpage called High Country Legends in 2002. Quickly, the ideas and opportunities expanded and soon, a small business she started in 1998 called the Rocky Mountain General Store was merged with the new website. This business, which was also more of a hobby, was the sales outlet for her creative endeavors. 14/09/2016 06/05/2018 Free-State Kansas. The Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 not only created the territories of Kansas and Nebraska, but also repealed the Missouri Compromise of 1820 and allowed the territory settlers to determine if they would allow slavery within their boundaries. Though the initial purpose of the Kansas-Nebraska Act was to create opportunities for a transcontinental railroad, that changed with the struggles between the north and south for dominance on the issue of slavery. 28/08/2017 02/05/2018 03/11/2017 Linux is the central resource for open source software information, best practices, how-to’s and Linux software resources. 03/11/2017 The Linux Foundation is dedicated to building sustainable ecosystems around open source projects to accelerate technology development and commercial adoption.

Nuestro mandato, desde la promulgaciĂłn en 1983 de la ley que funda a Radio MartĂ, es servir como fuente confiable y autorizada de informaciĂłn precisa, balanceada y completa para el pueblo de Cuba. En una sociedad cerrada donde todos los medios de comunicaciĂłn continĂşan siendo controlados por el Estado; Radio, TV MartĂ y son la Ăşnica instituciĂłn enfocada en cubrir esencialmente el tema cubano con una visiĂłn alternativa que rompe la censura informativa. En la actualidad, “los MartĂ” cuentan con la red mĂĄs grande de periodistas independientes que trabajan dentro de la isla y es referente obligatorio de informaciones sobre Cuba y para Cuba. 12/10/2017 12/10/2017 12/10/2017 12/10/2017 12/10/2017 12/10/2017 06/02/2018 Gull Index. Most gull-watchers know that even in the field, the perceived shade of gray on a gull can change depending on the angle that the bird is standing. Judging absolute shades of gray from photos is hazardous due to the variables of emulsion film, digital CCD receptors, and especially “auto-fix” options provided in various imaging software such as Adobe Photoshop, etc. Even more variable will be the perception created by the brand and settings of your computer monitor – my two screens show significant differences in exposure! 06/02/2018 Index of Identification-related birds. The entries on this page are quite varied, and some of them suggest tentative IDs that would be extremely significant, were the ID to be confirmed – but almost all of these types of entries remain speculative, and the vast majority have NOT been submitted as any particular taxon – and probably never will be. The main purpose of these kinds of entries is to provoke discussion about identification/occurrence issues, and perhaps broaden awareness of the potential for certain forms to occur as vagrants. 06/02/2018 Index of Interesting / Unusual / Rare birds. 06/02/2018 Places: short travelogs from birding trips. 28/03/2018 The Marvin Sewell Group. 28/07/2017 31/10/2017 26/08/2017 28/08/2017 28/08/2017 28/08/2017 26/08/2017 12/12/2016 08/06/2018 06/03/2018 03/09/2017 12/04/2016 Mental Engineering is a weekly roundtable discussion about TV commercials and our commercial culture.

Thirty-five years after director Stanley Kubrick dared to film ‘Lolita,’ Vladimir Nabokov’s tale of obsession is still a scandal. By Richard von Busack. ‘How Did they ever make a movie out of Lolita?” was the irresistible tagline in the ad campaign for the 1962 film version of Vladimir Nabokov’s scandalous novel about a middle-aged man’s obsession with a nymphet. The question isn’t any easier to answer in 1997. Consider Shirley Temple dressed in a diaper and halter top, undulating like Mae West, in the short film Polly Tix in Washington, from 1933. It’s early evidence that the movie business has been providing young flesh for old men for a long time. 07/02/2018 26/01/2018 The Blarney Stoned. Accent held higher than his hair, Brad Pitt gets serious in father-son thriller with Harrison Ford. By Richard von Busack. Brad Pitt is trying to be very serious indeed in The Devil’s Own. Dialect coach Brendan Dunn taught Pitt the Belfast gargle of authentic incoherence, and when Pitt glottally tells Harrison Ford how the British killed his “da” (father), expect confused viewers to ask themselves, “They killed his dog?” The hair that was his greatest asset as an actor is clipped and kept unwashed to make Pitt look authentically poor. 02/01/2018 12/10/2017 12/10/2017 25/09/2016 25/09/2016 25/09/2016 25/09/2016 25/09/2016 25/09/2016 25/09/2016 25/09/2016 25/09/2016 25/09/2016 12/03/2016 Download Star Charts. Now with Messier Deep Sky Objects!. These star charts are designed to work anywhere on Earth. Instructions are included on the last two pages of the PDF file linked above. Once you learn the constellations you can point them out to others using a green laser or get a better view with a pair of binoculars or a telescope. The constellations lines are based in part on those in a book called The Stars by H. A. Rey. These constellation patterns were adopted by Google Sky. 12/03/2016 Eclipsing Binary Stars. Produce animated views of eclipsing binary stars and calculate synthetic lightcurves. Most stars are found in groups of stars that are gravitationally bound with each other. The majority of these stars are found in binary systems which are systems of two stars in orbit around a common center of mass. One can classify binary stars based on their appearance from earth. Stars that are far enough apart to be distinguished from each other are known as visual binaries. Other binaries are too close and far away to be seen separately but can distinguished using the doppler shift of their spectra. These are spectroscopic binaries. 20/11/2017 28/08/2017 24/10/2017 03/05/2018 28/08/2017 17/06/2018 17/06/2018 12/05/2017 The Montana Film Office is an award winning office of film and PR professionals.

I suppose one could say that I fell into antique telephone collecting by accident. I was working for Redwoods Telephone Company, a very small independent telephone company in Cave Junction, Oregon. My title was “storekeeper.” I was also considered the warehouse manager, amongst other things. Redwoods Telephone Company was somewhat antiquated. The year was 1974 but we were still using telephone instruments that dated back to the 1930’s. We still used “coded ringing,” meaning that you had to count the rings to determine if the call was for you, or someone else on your party line. My code was two longs and one short. 09/12/2017 Mushroom Adventures began in 1996 in a San Francisco basement garage. The founder, Donald Simoni, had been growing mushrooms for over five years, when he needed more equipment: a pressure cooker that cost over $400.00. This seemed like a lot of money at the time to spend on a hobby, so Don made a few mushroom kits to sell at the local mushroom fair. Mushroom Kit sales went very well and Don earned half the money for the pressure cooker. Shortly after the San Francisco mushroom fair another mushroom fair in Santa Cruz was coming up so Don attended it and sold more mushroom kits. So began the business, Mushroom Adventures. 09/12/2017 In 1990, the Mushroom Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act was passed by Congress to strengthen the mushroom industry’s position in the marketplace, maintain and expand existing markets and uses for mushrooms, and develop new markets and uses for mushrooms. In 1993, the Mushroom Council was established to carry out the direction of this act. The Council started out with a meager budget and a lot of inspiration about promoting mushrooms. It began doing research to closely define the mushroom user which became the foundation for all of its communication efforts. Once the ground work was laid, a successful promotions program began to take shape. Immediate targets for consumer communication were food editors of newspapers and magazines, TV and radio personalities, and chefs and cookbook writers. Mushroom recipes went out to hundreds of venues each year — thus increasing consumer awareness and demands for literature on mushrooms. 09/12/2017 The owner handles the business personally as he takes great pride in keeping running smoothly and making sure customers are happy. He also enjoys getting out in nature and searching for mushrooms, especially in beautiful tropical locations. Chasing fungi was not what he got his college degree in, but life is full of turns and surprises. Now he owns a cool web site. The owner and his colleagues are all very passionate about fungi and enjoy the challange of constantly learning new aspects of fungi and mushrooms, they always have someting to teach us. It’s not just a business, it’s a fun and rewarding hobby. The owner and his family are Christians and strongly believe this business has been a blessing from God. Fungi, mushrooms, spores are a blessing from God. They are His creation and we are merely messengers spreading knowledge and moving spores and cultures around His earth. We stand before The Creator, humble and true to His creation. 09/06/2018 09/06/2018 09/06/2018 09/06/2018 17/10/2016 Mushrooms, Truffles, Chilis and More for Sale.

It is a production of Michael Wood, a past president of the Mycological Society of San Francisco. MykoWeb was started in the fall of 1995 and was one of the first internet mycology mushrooming sites. 09/12/2017 Welcome to the The Fungi of California, a World Wide Web site created and maintained by Michael Wood and Fred Stevens. This site describes the higher fungi (mushrooms) found in the state of California, which is on the Pacific (west) coast of the United States of America. This site started out as the Common Fungi of the Bay Area, grew with the addition of less-common species to Fungi of the Bay Area, and has now expanded to become The Fungi of California. If you read through the bibliography of this web site, you’ll find several field guides that document California fungi. Our intent is not to duplicate or replace these field guides, but to augment them. Because field guides are published books, they have two main drawbacks not shared by a web site: they have limited color photos due to printing costs, and they can’t be updated frequently to reflect changes in mycological taxonomy and nomenclature.
