  1. Besides Libya there are far brutal regimes in power in the middle east, saudi arabia, iraq for example, so why not focus on them or have the oil contracts allready been awarded to the west, remember krygeszstan ,the government of this country killed over 2,000 of it’s people after a peaceful demonstrations few years ago and yet because the u.s has it’s millitary base in this country they turn a blind eye to the massacres and the regime

  3. so i have a global project due tomorrow and all i have left to do is a 4 page essay on the life of Hugo Chavez and i need some key points in his presidency as I’ve already written just about up to that.

  4. My wife has a small business email account from her company that was associated with her free personal email account. So both accounts share the same password. She wants to disassociate them so each could have its own password. How could this be done? I look around on the email options and could not find a place that shows the other account. However, at the top of the email front page, she could see both accounts and could switch over back and force.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  5. Whenever I visit a world capital or a major city, I do a survey – a survey of cars. You know, a president is like a prisoner: you get off the plane – welcome, welcome, welcome – you’re shuffled into a car, voom, straight to the hotel, you get to see the streets, jump out, into a room, wait, you have 10 more minutes, off you go, voom, you’ve arrived. From one place directly to the next, and then in the evening back to the hotel, and that’s it.

    So, what do I do? I look out and I count the other cars – across the world, in New York, in Washington, in Vienna. In every big city, it seems that 96% of vehicles on the streets are standing in long lines like worms, going at the speed of a tortoise, burning who knows how many litres per kilometre because they’re barely moving. They’re stuck, and they can’t turn the engine off because they’d only have to restart it yet again. And they’re only trying to travel 3km or 5km within the same city. Again, in 96% of vehicles – cars for six people or the smallest ones for four – you see only one person travelling: the one behind the wheel. And this vehicle is three metres long by two metres wide, roughly speaking. This is the extreme of capitalist individualism. Everyone wants to have a car and drive around the streets like an idiot: alone in their car, burning litres and litres of fuel, polluting the atmosphere.

    Are we to blame? No. It is the fault of the capitalist propaganda fed to us via television since we were children. A child in front of a TV is in danger. Shown a nice new car – luxurious! A scantily clad woman – very pretty! Women as sexual objects, interposed with this and that and the luxury car. What is not shown is that decent people are those who help a disabled child, tend the elderly and sick, or cut their bread in two to give to the starving. TV tells us that decent people are well-dressed and own luxury cars.

    Mind you, everyone has their own car: husband, wife, each has a car, and when their son turns 18 or 20, he gets one of the cars, and whoever doesn’t have a car feels unhappy. Then there are people who feel inferior because they have to get on a bus or a tube or a tram, take public transport.

    This model is unsustainable. Scientists have calculated precisely what will happen if the entire planet adopts the energy-consumption patterns and lifestyles of the developed countries of the north. The US, for example, accounts for only 5% of the world’s population yet consumes 25% of the energy produced. It’s sheer madness.

    Anyway, let’s suppose we all wanted to live that way and that, by some magic, we could. Let’s suppose that Nicolas Maduro, the president of the Venezuelan national assembly, was a magician and we could all wake up tomorrow with a US standard of living. “Ah,” someone would say, “Nicolas, you’ve produced the miracle of the century. Look, we’re all making a good living; we all have a car and a house.” If that were to happen, do you know what else would have had to happen simultaneously? We would need to have found seven or eight planets like Earth in order to sustain that way of life. We have invented telescopes, the most powerful telescopes ever, yet we haven’t been able to see, in the Milky Way or any other constellation or galaxies, a single other planet like Earth. Not yet.

    Do you know how many hours of electricity they get in Haiti? Two hours a day. The US automobile sector on its own consumes much more fuel than all the countries of the Caribbean put together. It cannot be sustained.

    We must discourage the use of individual vehicles, and the congestion charge introduced by the mayor of London seems a good idea.

    Before my recent visit to London, I attended a round-table discussion at the presidential summit in Vienna. Concern over the energy crisis, which the world is only just beginning to experience, took precedence. We have been studying the question a great deal due to our status as an oil-producing country. We have research centres in Opec countries, and many experts in the field. So I addressed the presidents on how Opec was not producing enough and so on, and I said to them: “The first thing you all have to ask yourselves is the following. What is the model of consumption we have and what is the model of consumption we can support?”

    Our current environmental approach, the management of solid waste, is not feasible. Buildings that are closed on all sides, virtually windowless or with impenetrable dark glass, are artificially lit by spotlights and light bulbs burning 24 hours a day. This is not feasible: 90% of vehicles on the streets of London, Vienna, Madrid, New York and Caracas carry only one person is lunacy. One car each? Our planet won’t stand that – that model of capitalism, extreme individualism and consumerist egotism. The destructive so-called developmentalism destroying the planet is, quite frankly, a thing of stupidity – una cosa de tontos.

    I’m just curious as to why the average American even cared about Venezuela that much. I know about the CIA and that makes since, but why do so many Republicans and Tea Party people get so incensed that he won the election?
    *cares, sense

    Maduro is the new president of Venezuela.

    I have an argumentative essay to write on the topic ‘The United States federal government should substantially increase its economic engagement toward Venezuela” and I have to be on the negative side.
    I need some serious help here, so before I get a bunch of answers telling me to do it on my own I will tell you that I have a concussion and I am incapable of concentrating on anything and I just need help with finding 3 different reasons for why America should not help Venezuela economically.

    Please help. Any GOOD AND RELIABLE websites that could help me or just reasons to not help Venezuela

    Thank you so much in advance for all of your help

  11. Well, my school has one universal account for ALL students to use. However, with individual accounts, it is easier to monitor individual student internet access. So, why do some schools not have individual web accounts, but rather one universal, virtually untrackable computer account?

  12. I want to open a savings account separate from my checking account to earn a higher interest rate. I keep reading about “money market accounts.” What is the different between a savings account and a money market account? What are the advantages/disadvantages to having either one? Thank you!
    By the way, I do plan on meeting with a banker as soon as the holidays slow down to better discuss my options.
    I just wanted to see if anyone could offer any quick info or help on here in the meantime! 🙂

  13. 2 separate checking accounts (one for each), and then one combined savings account? Or one combined checking and one combined savings account? Or any other ideas? What has or has not worked for you in the past?

  14. For example, suppose you have $100 in the AFDA, $300 in accounts receivable, $100 in bad debt expense, you need to write-off an account of $200. What would the journal entries be?
    Would you credit bad debt expense or would you create a separate account called loss on re-estimation and credit that? Would a contra account be involved?

    Hotmail has an option that says “send and receive mail from other e-mail accounts”. I was able to set it up so I can send mail from my other account, but I don’t know how to make it so I receive other mail on my hotmail account.
