Where is Humanity for A Girl Like Me? 27 January, 2007Posted by paralleldivergence in children, education, Life, My Thoughts, Politics, racism.
When people run a project, an essential part of the success of that project is ongoing review. What did we do right? What did we do wrong? What could we have done better?

Forget your Day-Job. Become a Psychic! 18 January, 2007Posted by paralleldivergence in education, Life, My Thoughts, psychics.
There seems to be an overwhelming number of “gifted” individuals on this planet.

Watch out Firefox – Here Comes Maxthon! 11 January, 2007Posted by paralleldivergence in apple, firefox, maxthon, Web 2.0, windows.

I have to forward this to the rest of the accounts team!
How Saddam Killed the Death Penalty… 5 January, 2007Posted by paralleldivergence in Brad & Phil, Death penalty, education, Life, My Thoughts, Political Correctness, Politics, Saddam.
As Saddam was hanged and his images were flashed around the globe, the reverberations of opposition to the Death Penalty quickly followed. It is so ironic that it has taken the death of such a murderous tyrant to raise the howls of complaint over capital punishment. These were not protests to save Saddam.
