    Any truth to Peak Oil being a myth?

    Is there any truth to Peak Oil being a myth? Skeptics are claiming that oil is not made from previously living matter and therefore shouldn’t be considered a fossil fuel. They mention the deepest fossils ever discovered have been no more than 16,000 feet yet we drill for oil in depths much...

    News Why talk about 1967 borders?

    One reason is that the 1948 borders were considered legal according to the UN - who drew them. Territories gained after 1967’s Six Day War (West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights, Sinia (given back to Egypt)) are considered illegal by the UN.

    News What exactly is being contested about the 1967 borders?

    It makes sense that Israelis seeking a two state solution would not want their people on the opposite side of their barrier wall. I don’t see how you think that is a “sufficiently unreal” assertion. That’s arrogant, off topic, and argumentative. I’m to believe that your knowledge is so...

    News What exactly is being contested about the 1967 borders?

    I don’t understand what you are saying or what you want me to look for within that long article? I was quoting you simply to make it clear that my reply was based on your response. And essentially thanking you for clearing up where my misunderstanding was. You asked me for a link showing Bibi’s...

    News What exactly is being contested about the 1967 borders?

    I'm not able to find a link substantiating this claim; apparently this is where my misunderstanding lays. Subconsciously I must have concluded that Netanyahu sought a two-state solution consisting of Gaza and the West Bank, based on my knowledge of his recent statements to Congress and AIPAC...

    News What exactly is being contested about the 1967 borders?

    To clarify my original question, please let’s not get into the politics of the Palestinian/Israel conflict debating about who is right or wrong; but rather what is exactly being contested by Netanyahu in response to Obama’s recent policy stance where he states that a resolution should be based...

    News What exactly is being contested about the 1967 borders?

    I’m confused on what exactly is being contested. If I understand correctly, Netanyahu foresees a two state resolution with Palestine consisting of the West Bank and Gaza. I also understand that Netanyahu is in strict opposition to withdrawing to the 67’ borders. Since the 67’ borders separate...

    News Presidential Debate #1

    In chess, tactics are short burst of strategy, often times loosing material before gaining it back. The US spent additional money by adding additional troops in hopes to gain material back in the form of reduced violence. What’s next? Stay the Course? Let’s assume that “Staying the Course” will...

    News Palin is probably the nation's leading energy expert - McCain

    Giuliani inferred that although McCain said “… anyone else in the United Sates” what he actually meant was “… any elected official in the United States” Isn’t it a more simple explanation to say that McCain exaggerated? Sort of like when he said Gov. Palin sells planes on Ebay for a a...

    News Presidential election 2008

    Are Gallup and Rasmussen considered to be the most reliable and the least biased? Do some polls have a reputation of being bias?

    News Sara Palin speech

    No, I was summarizing a news blog I read on the Huffington Post. Well, to be honest I was inclined to believe it for two reasons. One, I want Obama to win. And two, Palin lied or severely twisted the truth in other parts of her speech so I figured she could be twisting the truth on this topic...

    News Sara Palin speech

    News Two global warming questions

    Is there not another approach to this issue besides cutting CO2 emissions which will most likely come in some form of costing us more money? It seems like to me that if we cut CO2 emissions it would be for “symbolism” in hopes of other countries jumping on this band wagon. Until these other...

    Questions about Install Software Applications

    There are many ways to go about this. In my opinion the number one thing to keep in mind while determining how you will handle this is… don’t use IT for the sake of IT, instead use it as a tool for the business to decrease expenses, increase profits, and improve operations. That may seem...

    IP configuration? how 2 do manually

    It most likely will not change on the 8th. Most cable providing ISPs will have your IP address tied to the MAC address of your cable modem. (every time your ISP sees a your MAC address it will allocate a reserved IP schema for it) If on an analog modem or DSL connection you would see the...
