Carthage: Hannibal's Journal: Personal: Rolling my own paper-based time management system

Carthage: Hannibal's Journal: Personal: Rolling my own paper-based time management system: "Quick Update: I forgot to mention how the planner page I made works. The wide lined column is for writing down the day's tasks. The narrower one is for appointments; I just scribble in the time and a note. The 'Contacts' region is where I write reminders to get back to people by phone, email, etc. Finally, the 'Notes' region is where I write down stuff like confirmation numbers, tracking numbers, phone numbers, and anything else anyone tells me while I'm on the phone that I need to jot down."

1) Tomato Sauce - Men who eat a lot of tomatoes, tomato sauce, or 
   pizza smothered with the stuff may be giving themselves a hedge 
   against prostate cancer. So say researchers at Harvard
   University, who studied the eating habits of more than 47,000
   male health professionals. They found that men who ate tomato
   sauce two to four times per week had a 35 per cent lower risk of
   developing prostate cancer than men who ate none. A carotenoid
   called lycopene, which tomatoes contain in abundance, appeared to
   be responsible. But scientists were puzzled: tomato juice didn't
   seem to have a protective effect. Other research show why. For
   best absorption, lycopene should be cooked with some kind of fat.
   So pizza may be just what the doctor ordered.

2) Oysters - Myth has it that oysters are the food of love. Science 
   may agree. Just two to three oyster deliver a full day's supply
   of zinc, a mineral critical for normal functioning of the male
   reproductive system. Scientists are divided over reports that
   sperm counts have declined over the last 50 years and that
   environmental  factors are to blame. Nutritional deficiencies do
   seem to be the cause of certain cases of low testosterone.
   Getting adequate zinc is sometimes the answer (up to 15
   milligrams per day is recommended for men; more than 40
   milligrams can pose risk). In one trial, 22 men with low
   testosterone level and sperm counts were given zinc every day for
   45 to 50 days. Testosterone levels and sperm counts rose.

3) Broccoli - A recent Harvard study finds that cruciferous
   vegetables, like broccoli, may protect against bladder cancer
   which is common among Asian men. Scientists analysed the diets of
   nearly 50,000 men and discovered that those who ate five servings
   or more per week of cruciferous veggies were half as likely to
   develop bladder cancer over a ten-year period as men who rarely
   ate them. And broccoli and cabbage were singled out as the most
   protective foods.

4) Peanut butter - If you want a healthy heart, spread your morning
   toast with peanut butter. Heart disease is the leading killer of
   men and women, but men fall victim at an earlier age. Researchers
   from Pennsylvania State University compared the cholesterol-
   lowering effect of the step II Diet of the America Heart
   Association (AHA) with a higher-fat diet based on peanuts. The
   AHA plan included more carbohydrates. The peanut regimen was 36
   per cent fat. After 24 days both diets lowered "bad" LDL
   cholesterol. But the peanut plan also caused a drop in blood fats
   called triglycerides and did not decrease HDL, the "good"
   cholesterol. The AHA diet raised levels of  triglycerides and
   lowered levels of HDL. "Peanut butter is a little higher in fat,"
   says Penny Kris-Etherton, the lead author of the study. "But it's
   the type that's good for you - monounsaturated fat." Researchers
   have predicted that the peanut diet could reduce heart-disease
   risk even more than the AHA diet could. Just don't go nutty
   plastering on the tasty spread, since it is high in kilojoules.

5) Watermelon - Until the age of 55, more men suffer from high blood
   pressure than do women. Research suggests that foods rich in pot
   passium can reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.
   The evidence is so convincing that the US Food and Drug
   Administration recently allowed food labels to bear a health
   claim about the connection between potassium-rich foods and high
   blood pressure. "A good goal for potassium is about 2000
   milligrams or more a day," says Antigone Blazos, a lecturer at
   Asia Pacific Health and Nutrition Centre in Melbourne, Australia.
   Watermelon is a rich source of this mineral and has more
   potassium - 664 milligrams - in just one large slice than the
   amount found in banana or a glass of orange juice. So cut
   yourself another slice and enjoy its cool taste.

There you have it: five great foods for men that can keep both of
you well fed and healthy at the same time.

Demi Masa

It�s important to do things right, do them quickly, and do them well (efficient),
but it�s much more important to do the right things (effective).

People who are known for doing things right, quickly, and well, are efficient, but they are not necessarily effective.

That�s because they often waste their time doing things that do not need to be done, or that they do not need to do themselves.

This is a very meaningful story, please take time to read.

Two Boxes
( Please keep it going. ~ please send it on.)

Goodness's Boxes

I have in my hands two boxes,
Which Goodness gave me to hold.
He said, "Put all your sorrows in the black box,
And all your joys in the gold."

I heeded his words, and in the two boxes,
Both my joys and sorrows I stored,
But though the gold became heavier each day,
The black was as light as before.

With curiosity, I opened the black,
I wanted to find out why,
And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole,
Which my sorrows had fallen out by.

I showed the hole to Goodness, and mused,
"I wonder where my sorrows could be!"
He smiled a gentle smile and said,
"My child, they're all here with me.."

I asked Goodness, why he gave me the boxes,
Why the gold and the black with the hole?
"My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
The black is for you to let go."

We should consider all of our friends a blessing.
Send this to a friend today just to let them know you
are thinking of them and that they are a joy in your life.

A ball is a circle, no beginning, no end.
It keeps us together like our Circle of Friends.
But the treasure inside for you to see,
Is the treasure of friendship you've granted to me.

Today I pass the friendship ball to you.
Pass it on to someone who is a friend to you...

Okay, here goes, instantly when you receive this letter, you
should send it to at least 10 people to brighten uptheir day.

The more you give, the more you get-
The more you laugh, the less you fret-
The more you do unselfishly,The more you live abundantly...
The more of everything you share, The more you'll always have to spare-
The more you love, the more you'll find that life is good and friends are
For only what we give away enriches us from day to day.

Considering family in a world that has forgotten it

Considering family in a world that has forgotten it: "My newfound reliance on family as a stronghold for security and happiness puts me in the minority. Maybe it's just me, but is the idea of the family unit unfashionable nowadays? Do episodes of 'The Waltons,' where challenging and unresolvable conflicts that are settled through family cooperation and understanding, reveal a certain sappy and long-gone portayal of the household?
Leaving home for college is no longer simply a chance to immerse ourselves in an academic environment and prepare for a career. For many of today's students, attending school is also a desperate flight from the nagging and oppressing scene at home. Most sons and daughters only seek the refuge of their homes in times of necessity."

Journalism 2.0

June 2001 Linux For Suits Editorial for Linux Journal
As Glenn Fleischmann put it in the Seattle Times recently, "Some blogs are closer to public diaries; others, the idiosyncratic or authoritative musings of experts and cranks". Together they constitute a vast peer-to-peerage that performs a constant story-finding and fact-correcting purpose both for their own readers and for mainstream journalists who don't want to be caught fluffing nothing into something.
Thanks in large measure to blogs, the journalism of the future will be fed mostly by a peer-to-peerage of linked and syndicated writers and sources who endlessly report facts, stories and informed speculation. The nature of peer-review journalism is very much like the nature of peer-review software -- and, naturally, includes many of the same people. News, ideas, facts, jokes, interesting links and other items are constantly vetted, checked, challenged, credited, linked and spread. Underlying all of it the main purpose is no less social than open source code development: to share what we know and what we think. Not to attract interest with bogus stories, or to attract readers to advertisers -- which two common hidden agendas of traditional journalism, especially in trade publications.

Clash of the Uncivilized

By: Imam Zaid Shakir
"For example, it is interesting that these events have come to a head in the immediate aftermath of the stunning landslide victory of Hamas in the Palestinian elections. That victory has rekindled, both in the East and the West, the debate around the implications of supporting democratization in the Muslim world when the biggest winners will be Islamic parties and movements. There are secularists in both the West and the Muslim world who advocate ending the democratizing experiment on that basis. However, they know that denying the democratic will of the Muslim peoples cannot be done without the support of the masses of people in Europe and America. These masses, especially in Britain and America, are increasingly wary of their governments' nefarious agenda for the Middle East. However, the frightening images of crazed crowds rampaging, looting, and burning provides a powerful justification for the extreme, repressive policies being advocated by the far right for dealing with Islam and Muslims, both domestically, and internationally. Democracy in the Muslim world, they argue, will bring the advocates of mob rule to power."
