Eye of the Tiger

This song always touches me in a way that I can't explain. Here is the link to a mp3 copy in the net: 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 dista

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." Read the full article from the link below: Lessons from Apple
