8.8 quake hits Chile... Pacific countries on Tsunami alert

Are these signs of 2012

During the past few months there have been massive earthquakes across the world. India, Pakistan, China, South East Asia, Haiti and now Chile, have all been rocked by earthquakes causing death and devastation. Has anyone bothered to sit back and wonder why so many natural disasters are taking place? The Mayan Calendar ends at 2012 and there is a widespread belief that the world as we know it will come to an end.

I wonder if we need to consider these signs as those warning us humans of what is going to happen if we continue to exploit nature and destroy the earth. Every nation is delving into the depths of the earth seeking its wealth, oil, precious metals, and some like Iran simply to build nuclear facilities.

If this continues it wont be long before the world actually comes to an end....

Free Web-based teleconferencing feature!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Speek. All opinions are 100% mine.

When technology is so advanced as here in the US it is often difficult for people to be physically present at meetings. Executives are increasingly multitasking while going about their daily lives. For example a busy executive may be driving his son to the football game and attending an important business teleconference call, else answering e-mail through a hand held device.

Innovative inventors are unleashing newer and newer technologies to speed up communications and increase convenience to end users. One such new tool to hit the market is Speek, currently in in private beta this is a FREE web-based teleconferencing system. The company is currently inviting users to register for private beta and evaluate their service quality. The unique selling proposition of this system is that the system will dial out to the participants. The system is compatible with land lines, mobile phones and voice-over-internet applications like Skype and GoogleTalk.

Speek invites all businesses, non-profits and other users to visit their website and get Free registration for the beta service. If you have been using teleconferencing facilities from commercial operators and paying hefty fees, here is your opportunity to get the same service for free. The biggest advantage with speek is the fact that it supports dialing to Skype and GoogleTalk also.

Rise in Marijuana Use among American Seniors

A strange and rather surprising trend was reported in today's news. The headline screamed out "Marijuana Use by Seniors Goes up as Boomers Age". These were the same folk who enjoyed the magic drug back in the 1960s and 1970s. Now they are back at it after retirement, to have some senior fun and relaxation.
I wonder if this is the example today's youth should be emulating? What will be the future of today's youth if the trend continues? During the 1960s and 1970s the communications and transportation was not so rapid. Drug trafficking was not so rampant, even if that generation was hooked on "grass" it was not this easy to get it, I suppose. Now with the proliferation of markets and easy availability of the drug and with so many senior people to emulate, I wonder what lessons the youth will learn when they read this article.
Too many questions and too few answers...
