Going beyond GDP
http://www.beyond-gdp.eu/ Does money buy happiness? Can wellbeing be measured? Does growth equal progress? These may sound like esoteric questions, but they are at the heart of efforts to move beyond GDP to develop more accurate ways of measuring human development. Shot in Canada and Europe, this clip shows how rampant growth can lead to ruin, how disasters can be good for the economy and how rising GDP doesn't benefit everyone.

AMAZING Coke on Pork Experiment
Watch this one first: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/447498/what_happens_when_you_pour_coke_on_raw_pork/ Cause... I get a half-cent per view. Muwhaaha... Here's the back-story... My roommate told me that she never ate pork because, "when you pour Coke on it, worms come out." After I finished laughing, I caught my breath and said, "I'm no lawyer, but if I was, I'd say you were legally retarded." She responded with, "Why the hell do you think nobody eats it?!" I told her I was going to prove her wrong - with video. So I made this... thinking she'd say "Hahah... yeah right. Why'd you fade to black if it was only 2 minutes?!" Instead, she watched it and said, "NOW do you believe me?!" ... She didn't care that it was ridiculously fake-looking, and I didn't expect anyone ELSE would buy it... But then people started reposting it (it was featured on Break, Ebaumsworld, Myspace, and maybe some others). It received 3 million views in the first week from these sites alone, not to mention the half million on YouTube (where it wasn't even featured). It generates a lot of racist and offensive comments. The interchange between commenters on Metacafe and YouTube basically went something like this: Comment: "That's why Muslims don't eat pork, you stupid fucking Americans." Response: "Don't you have something to blow up?" And so on. People take pork so seriously... Pork is the culinary name for meat from the domestic pig (Sus domesticus), which is eaten in many countries. The word pork denotes specifically the fresh meat of the pig, but it is often mistakenly used as an all-inclusive term which includes cured, smoked, or processed meats (ham, bacon, prosciutto, etc.) It is one of the most-commonly consumed meats worldwide,[1] with evidence of pig husbandry dating back to 5000 BC. Pork is eaten in various forms, including cooked (as roast pork), cured (some hams, including the Italian prosciutto) or smoked or a combination of these methods (other hams, gammon, bacon or Pancetta). It is also a common ingredient of sausages. Charcuterie is the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, many from pork. Pork is a taboo food item in Islam and Judaism, and its consumption is forbidden in these two religions. Coca-Cola is a carbonated soft drink sold in stores, restaurants, and vending machines internationally. The Coca-Cola Company claims that the beverage is sold in more than 200 countries.[1] It is produced by The Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta, Georgia, and is often referred to simply as Coke (a registered trademark of The Coca-Cola Company in the United States since March 27, 1944). Originally intended as a patent medicine when it was invented in the late 19th century by John Pemberton, Coca-Cola was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coke to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout the 20th century. The company produces concentrate, which is then sold to licensed Coca-Cola bottlers throughout the world. The bottlers, who hold territorially exclusive contracts with the company, produce finished product in cans and bottles from the concentrate in combination with filtered water and sweeteners. The bottlers then sell, distribute and merchandise Coca-Cola to retail stores and vending machines. Such bottlers include Coca-Cola Enterprises, which is the largest single Coca-Cola bottler in North America and western Europe. The Coca-Cola Company also sells concentrate for soda fountains to major restaurants and food service distributors. The Coca-Cola Company has, on occasion, introduced other cola drinks under the Coke brand name. The most common of these is Diet Coke, with others including Caffeine-Free Coca-Cola, Diet Coke Caffeine-Free, Coca-Cola Cherry, Coca-Cola Zero, Coca-Cola Vanilla, and special editions with lemon, lime or coffee. In response to consumer insistence on a more natural product, the company is in the process of phasing out E211, or sodium benzoate, the controversial additive used in Diet Coke and linked to DNA damage in yeast cells and hyperactivity in children. The company has stated that it plans to remove E211 from its other products, including Sprite and Oasis, as soon as a satisfactory alternative is found.[2] © 2007 Tobuscus

The Eiffel Tower, Paris, France (3)
http://carluz.uk.cloudlogin.co/wonderfuldreams/wonderful.htm (where you can find all information, vídeos, pics, ...) Paris, França Viagem a Paris de 28 a 31 Outubro de 2004 Torre Eiffel Inaugurada em 31 de Março de 1889, a Torre Eiffel foi construída para honrar o centenário da Revolução Francesa. O Governo da França planejou uma Exposição mundial e anunciou uma competição de design arquitetônico para um monumento que seria construído no Champ-de Mars, no centro de Paris. Mais de cem designs foram submetidos ao concurso. O comitê do Centenário escolheu o projeto do engenheiro Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923), de quem herdaria o nome, da torre com uma estrutura metálica que se tornaria, então, a estrutura mais alta do mundo construída pelo homem. Com seus 317 metros de altura, possuía 7300 toneladas quando foi construída, sendo que atualmente deva passar das 10000, já que são abrigados restaurantes, museus, lojas, entre muitas outras estruturas que não possuía na época de sua construção. Eiffel, um notável construtor de pontes, era mestre nas construções metálicas e havia desenhado a armação da Estátua da Liberdade, erguida pouco antes no porto de Nova Iorque. Quando o contrato de vinte anos do terreno da Exposição mundial (de 1889) expirou, em 1909, a Torre Eiffel quase que foi demolida, mas o seu valor como uma antena de transmissão de Rádio a salvou. Os últimos vinte metros desta magnífica torre correspondem a antena de rádio que foi adicionada posteriormente. A torre é visitada anualmente por 6,9 milhões de pessoas. Toda a informação em http://carluz.sc12.co.uk/wonderfuldreams/wonderful.htm Paris, France Trip 28 to 31 October 2004 Eiffel Tower The Eiffel Tower is an iron tower built on the Champ de Mars beside the Seine River in Paris. The tower has become a global icon of France and is one of the most recognizable structures in the world. Named after its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower is the tallest building in Paris. More than 200,000,000 people have visited the tower since its construction in 1889, including 6,719,200 in 2006, making it the most visited paid monument in the world. Including the 24 m (79 ft) antenna, the structure is 324 m (1,063 ft) high (since 2000), which is equivalent to about 81 levels in a conventional building. ====== P A R I S ====== Paris is the capital of France and the country's largest city. It is situated on the river Seine, in northern France, at the heart of the Île-de-France region. The City of Paris, within its limits largely unchanged since 1860, has an estimated population of 2,167,994 (January 2006), but the Paris agglomeration (the Paris unité urbaine or urban area), of which the City of Paris is but a core, has an estimated population of 10,142,977 (in 2006). The Paris aire urbaine (or metropolitan area), or the Paris agglomoration plus its commuter belt, has a population of nearly 12 million, and is one of the most populated metropolitan areas in Europe. An important settlement for more than two millennia, Paris is today one of the world's leading business and cultural centres, and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities. According to 2005 estimates, the Paris urban area is Europe's biggest city economy, and is fifth in the world's list of cities by GDP. The Paris Region, with US$731.3 billion, produced more than a quarter of the gross domestic product (GDP) of France in 2007. The Paris Region hosts 37 of the Fortune Global 500 companies in several business districts, notably La Défense, the largest purpose-built business district in Europe. Paris also hosts many international organizations such as UNESCO, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the informal Paris Club. Paris is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with over 30 million foreign visitors per year. There are numerous iconic landmarks among its many attractions, along with world-famous institutions and popular parks.

GTAC 2007: Adam Porter & Atif Memon - Skoll DCQAS
The 2nd Annual Google Test Automation Conference (GTAC) in our New York office on August 23 and 24, 2007. Adam Porter & Atif Memon - Skoll DCQAS Software engineers increasingly emphasize agility and flexibility in their designs and development approaches. They increasingly use distributed development teams, rely on component assembly and deployment rather than green field code writing, rapidly evolve the system through incremental development and frequent updating, and use flexible product designs supporting extensive end-user customization. While agility and flexibility have many benefits, they also create an enormous number of potential system configurations built from rapidly changing component implementations. Since today's quality assurance (QA) techniques do not scale to handle highly configurable systems, we are developing and validating novel software QA processes and tools that leverage the extensive computing resources of user and developer communities in a distributed, continuous manner to significantly improve software quality. Adam Porter Adam A. Porter is a professor with the Department of Computer Science, University of Maryland and is the Associate Director of the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies. He is a winner of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the Dean's Award for Teaching Excellence in the College of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Maryland. He is currently a member of the editorial board of the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering and served previously on the editorial board of the ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology. He is a senior member of both the IEEE and ACM. His current research interests include empirical methods for identifying and eliminating bottlenecks in industrial development processes, experimental evaluation of fundamental software engineering hypotheses, and development of tools that demonstrably improve the software development process. Atif Memon Atif M. Memon is an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Maryland. He received his BS, MS, and Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1991, 1995, and 2001 respectively. He was awarded a Gold Medal in BS.
