All female bespectacled bears at a Lepzig zoo have lost their fur coat.

Story is not alone. In 2003, a "mange" mite caused some Florida bears to lose fur,

Nice and simple explanation of array formulas in Excel. That's how you do SUMIF by more than one column, instead of using hairy SUMPRODUCTs.

IM any business in the US instead of calling them. Completely anonymous - you don't have to sign up. Responses arrive pretty quickly, in less than 5 minutes.

They do it by relaying the message via email, SMS or a plain phone call for businesses that haven't gotten onboard with the technology. In the Bay Area, all businesses I tried were accessible via TalkTo.

Android app is very buggy.

Pronounced as "fish" or completely silently.

* gh, pronounced /f/ as in tough /tʌf/;
* o, pronounced /ɪ/ as in women /ˈwɪmɪn/; and
* ti, pronounced /ʃ/ as in nation /ˈneɪʃən/.

Using the same method and reinforcing the original point, ghoti can be a silent word, where:
* gh as in though (/ðoʊ/) ;
* o as in people (/'pi pl/) ;
* t as in ballet (/'bæleɪ/) ;
* i as in business (/'bɪznəs/)

[[Compared the self-reports of 177 porn actresses to a sample of women matched on age, ethnicity, and marital status. Comparisons were conducted on sexual behaviors and attitudes, self-esteem, quality of life, and drug use. Porn actresses were more likely to identify as bisexual, first had sex at an earlier age, had more sexual partners, were more concerned about contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD), and enjoyed sex more than the matched sample, although there were no differences in incidence of CSA. In terms of psychological characteristics, porn actresses had higher levels of self-esteem, positive feelings, social support, sexual satisfaction, and spirituality compared to the matched group. Last, female performers were more likely to have ever used 10 different types of drugs compared to the comparison group.

These findings did not provide support for the damaged goods hypothesis.]]

Getting customers is done via marketing (selling to anyone, appealing to their identity), sales (1:1, personalized) or PR (contextualized, selling to anyone who "gets it").

The message must focus on one component, because focusing on all three makes it too long and/or confusing.

Apple is a marketing company, Microsoft is sales, Google is PR (and very rare in that it changes its logo to appeal to occasions, very often). The founders reflect this: Jobs liked himself, Gates most often appeared in conversations with people, Google's founders have delegated the sales function to Eric Schmidt, and the primary thing we know about them is the idea; it's Larry "Page" in PageRank. Zuckerberg hired engineers even for Facebook's non-engineering functions, which is why it's weak.

Marketers naturally customize (to people's tastes), salespeople naturally personalize (to people's identities), and PR people naturally contextualize to people's environments.

[[So, to summarize, Eric Klien has said quite openly that he is waging a war against what he believes to be a “Religion of Science” (which he claims that all scientists subscribe to even though they don’t know it), and that he is using a Trojan Horse strategy to gather a lot of scientists and intellectuals together in a place he calls a “Lifeboat”, and that when he thinks of what to do about this problem his first impulse is to quote Adolph Hitler on the subject of how hard it is to fight people who belong to a religion….

Something is seriously wrong here.

It is worth adding that the Lifeboat Foundation is also spectacularly ineffectual. All it seems to do is have a discussion list where a few people argue occasionally, and a set of boards where (as far as I can see) nothing happens.

Or, looking at it another way, the Lifeboat Foundation is very effective indeed. It raises money, and it supplies a very high profile to its founder, Eric Klien.]]
