I'm not sure why the recent blog posting by "Barry" has to repeat "authentic" in its title ("Original and Authentic Custom Dissertations from the most Authentic Dissertation Service Online"), unless it's for the same reason those guys standing on the street corners with portable displays of watches for $20 each (2 for $30) have to stress the idea that they're "authentic" Rolexes.
The post, of course, is nothing more than an advertisement for a site selling dissertations: a… Continue

According to most pundits, the recent monetary crisis has dealt a devastating blow to the future of online, non-traditional advertising. “Are ‘experimental’ marketers doomed?” asks Adotas. “Credit crunch hits new ad technology” utters Utalk Marketing. “Investment in bullshit ads plummets,” gloats Gawker.
Kind of reminds me of the great High Street rout during the Ohio flood of 1913.
In March of 1913 Ohio experienced the worst natural disaster of its history when heavy… Continue

Every year it seems like there are fewer games out on the market that truly stimulate, excite, and even shock those who play them for the first time. It often takes several years to develop a game with a rich atmosphere like that found in the Diablo series of RPGs. The risks are high and the rewards uncertain, especially for Indie developers, even with a good team and solid scope. Several types of genres will on occasion bring about these fresh perspectives gamers… Continue

A search of Google News shows that in the last 24 hours there have been almost 800 articles with the phrase "impacted on." That means almost 800 news stories in one day alone have gone out of their way to irritate me.
That's a lot of irritation. And that's not counting other uses of the word "impact" as a verb, such as "will impact" (almost 5,000) and "have impacted" (almost 800).
I know, I know. There is nothing grammatically wrong with using "impact" as a verb. The… Continue

A TV commercial can cost hundreds of thousands, sometimes even millions of dollars. The reason is two-fold: not only are vast numbers of people watching the shows (and hence the ads), but the production costs of TV shows put their creation well beyond the means of the average person. Even with a few hundred channels, there is still a limited number of programs because it takes big corporations and big bucks to make even the cheapest reality show. So what would happen if a technology came along… Continue

Well, it’s happened again. It seems female sharks really can reproduce in a manner generally reserved for sacred bulls, Egyptian gods, and Jewish messiahs. In other words, the female shark, under certain circumstances, can give birth without the help of a male.
The first confirmed instance occurred last May when a female hammerhead in Omaha, Nebraska, gave birth despite having been isolated from male sharks for over three years. The baby shark’s DNA showed the mother to be the only… Continue
