"Mastering the skill (of juggling) increases the amount of gray matter in areas of the brain that process and store visual information, proving what was not thought possible -- that new stimuli can alter the brain's structure. A comparison of brain-imaging scans of non-jugglers and other volunteers before they learned to juggle and three months later, revealed an increase in gray matter in certain areas of the newly trained jugglers' brains."
Update 2-27-2007 - If you have two minutes, please email this template to your Members of Congress and ask them not to impose a fee every time an airplane flies. The process is easy and the cause is worthy.
There is a lot of legislative talk in the business aviation community right now about so-called User Fees. I frequently see phrases like this in our industry magazines:
"If you use a general aviation aircraft for a business purpose, you are under attack!"
The airlines want to impose more than $2 billion in user fees to run things like the air traffic control system.
Their logic is that while one huge commercial jet may carry 200 passengers, it represents only one small dot on the air traffic control radar. A business jet carrying four people takes up as much space in the air traffic control system as a huge commercial jet.
You may have seen this image showing the number of private jets leaving the Super Bowl in 2007.
Not many people know it, but that graphic was created by the Air Transport Association (airlines lobby) to smear the business aviation community.
Here is a Microsoft Word template that I made for OM96178 labels from OfficeMax. These have three (3) sets of five (5) multi-color tabs. You should remove the light gray border from the table before printing.
These are also called insertable index dividers. This is a follow-up to my wildly popular OM99023 template hack.
Steve Murphy, CEO of publishing company Rodale, says, "A line in a William Blake poem inspired me to think differently about my day: 'Think in the morning, act in the noon, read in the evening, and sleep at night.' This has made a huge difference in my life. Now, I take out a yellow pad every morning and write my thoughts for the day, which allows me to be much more strategic and proactive than reactive."
That is all I got! Oh, and I am not joking about the hawks (reference this vidblog). Last week I saw at least one every day. Birds in general are way up - lots of cardinals, blue jays, and robins have been out in our front lawn.
