Do you ever talk to an “Old” IT person? You know, like 40ish. Man,
do they have some stories about how IT used to be back in the day. Things
sure have changed a lot. You probably think to yourself “Man, they have no
idea how things are now”. How about a “Middle-Aged” IT person? You know
like 30ish. They have stories too, and things have changed a lot since then
as well. You may be thinking “That guy is really losing touch”.
It seems to come in waves… change that is. Well another wave is crashing
the beach, and if you are not paying attention, you too could soon be “that
guy” who has lost touch, maybe you feel you are already slipping.
If you are not on the side that knows that “Cloud is Inevitable”, you are
on the wrong side… or living in denial. Don’t believe me? Click the link

MORRISTOWN, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/17/07 -- This year's volatile market
offers a golden opportunity to "harvest" tax losses, says Jerry Miccolis, a
senior advisor with Brinton Eaton Wealth Advisors in Morristown, NJ. "It's a
have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too strategy if you do it right."
Suppose Jane Doe sells her entire $50,000 position in a mid-cap index ETF
(Fund A) at, say, a $5,000 short-term loss and immediately invests the
proceeds in another ETF (Fund B) that tracks the same index.
"Jane made the right move. She has stockpiled tax losses while leaving her
asset allocation unchanged," he says.
Her loss can be used to offset any realized gains. So if Jane sells her
shares in XYZ Technology for a $5,000 short-term gain this year, she won't
pay additional tax. If she doesn't have any realized gains, she can offset up
to $3,000 in ordinary income and carry over the... (more)

Since this is my first blog post I thought it should be memorable and so I
will share a secret passion of mine.
I like ants, I really do. Compared to Avega I might even like ants a little
bit more. Compared to my wife, well, she’ll always win big, but only
because I know my priorities in life – not because of the ants.
Even though I’ve first read about ants five, ten, fifteen years ago, I
still enthusiastically teach others about the beautiful fastest path
algorithm that ants use to optimize their harvest – and sometimes I also do
this against people's will (like when they get stuck with me in front of a
white board). I think it’s the emergent behavior that arises from doing
simple things tens of thousand times or more that still amazes me.
And so, true to my heart, I will tell you about this beautiful simple
algorithm; suppose you have to travel back an... (more)

Whether you’ve got a lot of space to work with or you’re simply hoping
for a few tomatoes in containers, it can be hard to know where to start with
your vegetable garden. Just deciding what to grow can pose a challenge for
some, but the best advice anyone could give you is, happily, simple: Grow
mainly what you like to eat.
Courgettes are easy to grow – as legends of neighbours of grow-your-owners
hiding from yet another delivery of them can attest – but if you’re not
that keen, having kilos of the beggars at your disposal is a waste of time.
Keep things interesting by growing at least one thing that’s
“exotic”/you’ve never tried and best of all, ignore the people who tell
you to keep it simple and don’t grow too many different things: variety is
half the fun of it. Some canny inter-cropping will see you getting more out
of the same space too. Once you know what ... (more)
The UK’s Soil Association has announced that if all British farmland was
converted to organic farming, at least 3.2 million tonnes of carbon would be
absorbed by the soil each year – the equivalent of pulling almost 1 million
cars off the roads.
Research undertaken by the association (available for download here), further
suggests that a worldwide switch to organic farming could offset 11% of all
global greenhouse gases. Among the other findings: widespread adoption of
organic farming methods in the UK would offset 23% of the country’s
agricultural emissions through soil carbon sequestration alone –
significantly better than the UK government’s current target of 6-11% by
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says that 89% of
agriculture’s global greenhouse gas mitigation potential is from carbon
sequestration. In addition to helping to counter clima... (more)
