    Jan 05 2013 Published by under General Interest

    Appolicious – The competition is heating up for mobile operating systems and manufacturers alike. Android had the mobile market on lockdown for the better part of 2011, but the iPhone 4S launch helped Apple make a surprise comeback towards the end of the year. According to US market watcher Nielsen, Q4 of 2011 saw Android’s share of the smartphone OS market drop from 61.6 percent to 46.9 percent. That’s still ahead of iOS, but Apple’s market share rose from 25.1 percent to 44.5 percent during this time frame. …

      What I've learned about most guys

      Jan 05 2013 Published by under Featured,General Interest,Interests

      Every man wants to learn how to pick up beautiful women. But most men, even some who think they’re Casanova reincarnated, totally screw it up. Before you learn how to seduce women the right way, you’re going to have to learn how to seduce women the wrong way. Here are a few of the most egregious mistakes made by wannabe players:

      Using unoriginal, clichéd, worn out pickup lines.

      If you’ve just started learning how to pick up beautiful women, canned material can be a great prop for building self-confidence and reassurance. As you progress, however, overused pick up lines will transform from helpful props into detrimental, limiting crutches. Stick to using personalized openers and stories, or – gasp! – just approach directly and speak your mind.

      Lying.

      Give women a little bit of credit – they are almost always more adept at reading social situations than men are, so there’s a good chance that if you’re lying, she knows it. Skip approaches that are based on false pretenses like “I’ve never been here before…can you tell me where _____ is?” You might get away with a lie at first, but imagine how you’re going to feel (and how stupid you’re going to look) when she finally catches you!

      Ignoring the physical and verbal signs that indicate a woman’s comfort zone.

      A lot of men in the seduction community seem to think that if a woman rejects your advances, it’s just because she doesn’t realize what an awesome, high-value guy you are. In some cases that’s probably true, but it’s safer to live by the “No means no” rule. If she legitimately isn’t interested in you, she’ll admire you for respecting her wishes and moving on, when most guys in that situation would continue to hound her. If she actually is interested in you, leaving her will show that you’re not needy and totally alpha. In either case, she might start chasing after you!

      These are just a few of the many ways in which undereducated seduction amateurs ruin social interactions. For more advice on how not to pick up women, continue on to “How To Pick Up Beautiful Women The Wrong Way: Part II.”

      U.S. Episcopalians move closer to allowing transgender ministers

      Jan 05 2013 Published by under General Interest

      INDIANAPOLIS (Reuters) – The U.S. Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops on Saturday approved a proposal that, if it survives a final vote, would give transgender men and women the right to become ministers in the church. The House of Bishops voted at the church’s General Convention to include “gender identity and expression” in its “non-discrimination canons,” meaning sexual orientation, including that of people who have undergone sex-change operations, cannot be used to exclude candidates to ministry. The move comes nine years after the Episcopal Church, an independent U.S. …

                Digital Trends – Occurring on Tuesday night during a performance of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony by the New York Philharmonic, a man’s iPhone erupted in the familiar marimba ring tone during the closing moments of the performance. Seated in the first row of Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in New York City, the man with the ringing iPhone watched as conductor Alan Gilbert halted the orchestra, turned toward the direction of the ringing and asked audience members in the general vicinity to turn off the smartphone. While the ring tone continued to repeat over and over, audience members yelled out phrases like “Throw him out!”, “Enough!” and “$1,000 fine!” while others clapped at the angry sentiments. The phone was eventually silenced after Gilbert asked several times.

Last month, Christie branded a lawmaker “one arrogant S--” at another town hall meeting.
