Swine Flu | Useful Information | Physio Scene

I just came across a health and fitness site with useful information and tips. It is called Physio Scene. Below is an example of one of their articles (about the Swine Flu) and a link to the site:

“Well, it has come to my attention that the more I read news articles and watch the news on the television, it seems that the swine flu isn’t going anywhere. I figured I’d write a little educational post here regarding the symptoms, things you should be aware of, if you’re worried about catching this H1N1 virus that has been going around.

First let me explain to you guys and gals that the reason the swine flu is a little different from the normal seasonal flu is because it also has components of bird and pig influenza viruses in it.

So let’s get down to what the basic symptoms of this swine flu are, shall we?

* High fever, which can sometimes be absent, in other words hidden. Normally this fever runs around 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
* Aches in your body, generally everywhere
* Runny and/or stuffy nose
* The chills (Normally associated with high fever)
* Headaches
* Being fatigued and/or overly tired
* Excessive coughing
* Sore Throat
* Vomiting/Diarrhea

If you feel that you personally are experiencing some or most of those symptoms, than there could be a small chance that you are infected. I am NOT a doctor however, so I would definitely get yourself to one”.

The Netbook Computer | Article | Dawn Clement

I just found an article that sure throws some light on the subject of netbook computers. I think you’ll find it interesting and here is an excerpt:

The Rise of the Netbook
“Small enough to fit in a purse, powerful enough for computing.”
by Dawn Clement

I’m using Google Documents to write this article on my newly acquired Acer Aspire One. These are important facts because five years ago I never would have deigned to use a computer that didn’t have an internal optical drive of some sort. These days, I’m not so sure I need an optical drive at all on a regular basis. You see, the Aspire belongs to a new class of computers called netbooks. These computers are ultra-portable laptops designed specifically for wireless communication and Internet access. They don’t need optical drives because it is assumed that the user will be accessing online services (i.e., Google Documents) instead of locally stored programs. Eliminating the optical drive and the PCMCIA slot results in a much smaller, much cheaper computer.

My Aspire has an Intel Atom N270 microprocessor with a speed of 1.6GHz, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB SATA HDD, came pre-installed with Windows XP, and cost $299. For comparison, my Dell Inspiron 9400 (yes, the same shiny new Dell that had the nasty malware problems and is now a Linux box) has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with a speed of 2GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 120GB SATA HDD, also came pre-installed with Windows XP, and cost $1,700.

Meteor Shower Expected Tonight (8/12/09)| The Perseids

According to Wikipedia: The Perseids (pronounced /ˈpɜrsiː.ɨdz/) is the name of a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle. The Perseids are so-called because the point they appear to come from, called the radiant, lies in the constellation Perseus. The stream of debris is called the Perseid cloud and stretches along the orbit of the comet Swift-Tuttle. The cloud consists of particles ejected by the comet as it travels on its 130-year orbit. Most of the dust in the cloud today is around a thousand years old. However, there is also a relatively young filament of dust in the stream that was pulled off the comet in 1862. The rate of meteors originating from this filament is much higher than for the older part of the stream.

The Perseid meteor shower has been observed for about 2000 years, with the earliest information on this meteor shower coming from the Far East.

The Eye of the Dragon | Stalking Castaneda | A Manuscript

I recently finished my manuscript. The Eye of the Dragon, Stalking Castaneda is now going to the ‘fridge’, meaning it will not be worked on for a few months.  I will get back to it later with a fresh mind to do the last draft. The cover art is below:
