2008-04-29 18:53:00
Telepathy is the ability of communicate directly from one mind to another, without the collaboration of spoken, written, or corporal language, no matter the distance between those minds.The word telepathy comes from the Greek "telepatheia".

Sirens And Their Songs
2008-04-18 15:30:00
The belief in sirens has its origin in the Ancient Greece and they've populated literature and legends of the Western world until our times.In their origin, the Sirens were hybrid beings between women and birds. Later, they were depicted as half woman half fish.In the Greek mythology, the voice of these creatures, beautiful and enchanting, was called the Sirens' Song. This song of the Sirens was described as hypnotic and, in many occasions, it meant the ruin for sailors.This appears in many important literary works like the Odyssey of Homer.Odysseus asks his men to protect their ears with beeswax, to avoid the temptation of the Sirens' Song. Circe the sorceress told Odysseus to not listen the Sirens' Song, but Odysseus was curious and ordered his men to tie him to the mast of his ship. When he heard the song, he tried to go with the Sirens, but his men saved him from doing that.There are also stories about Sirens in the writings of Euripides and Plato.In the legend of Jason and ...

The News Of The Day: Rearrange Of Alexa
2008-04-17 15:42:00
These days Alexa has rearranged its index of sites. This has caused a real collapse in Internet, as many well-known sites have seen their Alexa rank worsened.For those who don't know what Alexa is: it's a toolbar that you can add to your browser: d/The Alexa Rank indicates how much visited a website is. Websites with a lesser number are more visited than others with bigger numbers. For example, a website with 50,000 of Alexa has more visitors than one with 8,000,000 of Alexa.Having a good Alexa Rank is very important, specially for people that are freelancers (like in my case) or people that have their main income from their websites, businesses, etc. Having a good Alexa Rank makes advertisers and clients to trust more in you.Previous to this change, Alexa gave better positions to those sites that had more visitors with the Alexa toolbar installed.

One was tall and strong, the other was very lame and rather clumsy.Each day, her nephews brought all that the old woman may need to her house. But the weaker nephew always felt ashamed for bringing much less things than his cousin. He always lost something in the way. He was tormented by that.He felt very unhappy, and started a competition with his cousin in which he never won. One day, in despair, he went to visit the old woman sooner, and said her: "Dear Aunt, I will never come back here. Mi cousin can look after you much better than me. I am just a hindrance... I always end losing everything and I'm not useful for caring about anyone".The old woman looked at him with sweetness. "You, my nephew, are who brings more happiness to me. Haven't you seen all the beauty and joy that surrounds my house?"The boy saw that all around the house of the old woman there were dozens of fruit trees and flowers of all col...
