Neat little test. Which side of your brain do you use, Left or Right?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

Left Brain
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
Right Brain
uses feeling
"big picture" oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
risk taking

Occasionally I check my referral logs to see which pages are linking to here. I hate it when I see a page but I am not able to view it because the site needs a login. I recently got a good quantity of referrals from Luelinks. I had no idea about this site until then but a quick Google search turns out it is apparently a "secret" invite-only community. I like being associated with these things ... so if someone can please send a FREE invite to it'd be much appreciated. I'm good with secrets!

However on topic, with the recent shutdown of the UK file sharing site and arrest of its webmaster (News story) it could be a risk to be a member of these communities. But don't let that deter from sending me a link!

Oh and let us get this out of the way "Luelinks doesn't exist" lolol lolz rofl

Everyone is pointing fingures at the government, how they should have been able to prevent the attacks and had information beforehand that could of helped prevent the attacks on America.

On the other note what we learn in economics about the stock markets is you can not use currents news to base your decision on whether to buy or sells stocks becuase that news is already reflected in the price of stock.

If you look at a graph of the stock market 2-3 weeks before the September 11, 2001 you will see a gradial decline the market. Starting on August 24, 2001 and decreasing all the way through September 21, 2001. We all know why the stocks decreased after September 11, 2001 but made the stocks decrease before the attacks? Was a steep decline bound to happen anyway? Or, did investors have advance knowledge of these attacks?

Just something to think about next time the market is in a gradial decline.

If you happen to be a office cleaner make sure you are following these steps to be the average cleaning professional.

  1. Fill up all soap/paper towel dispensers (and lock if available) and but make sure that you do not feed into dispenser.
  2. If you have to vacuum make sure to vacuum but only vacuum center of rugs to save time.
  3. Spray a lot of Lysol and put blue dye into toilets but never actually clean the toilets
  4. Empty all garbages, but don't pick up anything that fell out of garbage, that's too much work
  5. Wear a lot of perfume/cologne. Be like most cleaners and smell like you just knocked off the perfume display case at department store.
  6. Make sure you only clean after hours so no one else is there when you cleaning so they can't say you don't spend enough time.
  7. Either leave stacks and stacks of extra supplies in the bathroom so you do not need to comeback often or not enough so your clients are happy to see you each time.
  8. There's no need to clean every space every time. If you alternate missing spots people may never notice.

[Mood: tired]

I havent been able to do much of anything lately as I've been spending my time at my office filing tax extension due September 15, 2007. Thanks to the internet though I have been able to keep up with most things. I have been buying new boxers and tshirts on the internet as needed since I have no time to do laundry and Every night I log onto youtube and watch the hottest tv shows I missed (yeah I saw Britney bomb). I also have a blockbuster online rental membership so I can even rent movies and return them (unwatched though).

Next I'm gonna start Google Image Searching beds instead of sleep.

The website changed servers and as a result the Rss feed was down due to technicalities but it is live again so make sure you resubscribe.

After tax season I plan on adding a couple new pages so stay tuned.

As an auditor you are responsible for knowing if something happens to your cleints that will affect their financial condition or subject them to legal issues. I am sure their a lot of professions where you have clients and want to know if they are in the news. Now most of the time you could just go to the companies webpages and click "news release", however the only problem is this will only give you the news the company wants you to hear. To get both good and bad news use google alerts. Google alerts will send you an email everytime a search term (such as your clients name) shows up in a new news stories. So far I've been alerted to a million dollar lawsuit and a death at one of my clients facilities just by reading the news.

link: Create a Google Alert

Select "News" as type to just get results in news stories only.
