And here is the lyric. Sing it along!

Eye Of The Tiger Lyrics
Artist(Band):Survivor


Risin' up back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

(Chorus)
It's the Eye of the Tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
thats enough to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he's watching us all
with the Eye of the Tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds until we take to the street
For we kill with the skill to survive

(Repeat Chorus)

Risin' up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

It's the Eye of the Tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he's watching us all
with the Eye of the Tiger

The Eye of the Tiger
The Eye of the Tiger
The Eye of the Tiger
The Eye of the Tiger

Fruit could make 'powerful fuel'

High cost is prohibitive making bio-fuels from fruits available for mass consumption within the next few years. But things will change. Economic necessities and sure certainty of shortages of world's finite world reserve will make it happen. Here is an excerpt from BBC:
"a simple sugar called fructose can be converted into a fuel that has many advantages over ethanol. It is called dimethylfuran - it can store 40% more energy than ethanol, does not evaporate as easily and is less volatile.

The scientists say that fructose can be obtained directly from fruits and plants or made from glucose.

But more work needs to be done to assess the environmental impact of this new fuel."

Lessons from Apple

Four Lessons to be learned from Apple:

1. "an orchestrator and integrator of technologies, unafraid to bring in ideas from outside but always adding its own twists."

2. "Apple illustrates the importance of designing new products around the needs of the user, not the demands of the technology."

3. "smart companies should sometimes ignore what the market says it wants today."

4. "The fourth lesson from Apple is to “fail wisely”. The Macintosh was born from the wreckage of the Lisa, an earlier product that flopped; the iPhone is a response to the failure of Apple's original music phone, produced in conjunction with Motorola. Both times, Apple learned from its mistakes and tried again."
