"I had leg cramps"...you'd better believe that such is also news!

I hope this doesn't get me kicked out of school, but I agree..."Facts, hot or cold, cannot be protected by copyright since there is no author of them."

News was never meant to be sold. Those who thought they sold it in the past, only sold early access to it and didn't seem to realize it. Now that the internet freely gives that access, it's time to innovate...or die!

The internet isn't necessarily killing journalism...it's redefining it. Now I don't have to hear from only people who went to school to learn how to spin the facts.
I can hear from anyone...people who are at the scene when it happens, or people who are feeling the pinch the most, or people who are not necessarily motivated by financial or political gain, or people who actually understand the technical jargon associated with the specific subject they're reporting about.

Yes, the internet makes it easier for the facts to be distorted...but it also makes it easier and faster for those distort…

I hate forwarded mail.
The one I received today is however worth 'forwarding'. I'm not going to use my e-mail forwarding (thereby exposing hordes of innocent e-mail addresses to potential spammers and hackers) so I'll simply retwee...sorry erm...I'll just summarize it as follows:

The 's' in https implies 'secure'. So if you're entering sensitive data, make sure the web address points to https rather than http. It's that simple...though some of my geek friends may beg to differ.

Active Givers and Passive Takers

Marriage is a covenant and I believe that, more important than the certificate given by the court house, is the covenant between the couple. I believe this covenant is signified by the biological covenant marker that God created...SEX. I believe God is very particular about covenants to the extent that the virginal bleeding is a blood covenant of sorts, which I believe He takes very seriously.

I believe God sees the sexual act as part of marriage so you can't really 'test the waters' without getting married. I also wouldn't be surprised if God saw some other not-so-committal things like living together as part of marriage but let's not belabor that right now.
Sex is about giving and taking. I believe God's intent was for the giving to be active and the taking to be passive.
