(The Professional Investor)If you bet only on small, conservative ideas, and stay focussed, you’re most likely to actually succeed, with normal-sized outcomes. This is the best bet for sustainable personal fulfillment and freedom, which after all is the core promise of…

Since Curry was cosplaying as Catwoman and had a whip…

    In Marvel War of Heroes many cards have an Ability. Each Ability is paired with a Usage stat, the Usage defines the likeliness of an ability activating in battle. In gaming circles the Usage is commonly referred to as the “Proc Rate”. Based on my personal experiences, talking with other players, and performing online research here is what I have deduced: 1. There is a specific percentage of likeliness for each proc rate. 2. Ability level augments the proc rate slightly. 3. Card rarity augments the proc rate further. 4. Card position within your deck augments proc rate as well. Base…

    Original article on GHL website - Who will you back to win Wimbledon?Who will you back to win Wimbledon? England may be out of the World Cup, but fear not, Wimbledon’s only just begun and Andy Murray, last year’s hero, returns to the Wimbledon’s centre court to defend his title. We don’t have to pretend we’re still interested in the football without a UK team to back; we can simply switch our affections and our TV viewing to tennis and get behind our beloved Murray. Obviously, there’s no sure thing when it comes to tennis, but Betfair and other betting sites certainly seem to…

  • How 2 Way Radios Work

    admin
    10 Jul 2014 | 6:40 pm
    To put it simply, a two way radio is a device that can both receive and transmit voice messages. In broader terms, it can be said that most wireless communication, and it may include cellular systems, fall under the definition. However, these days, 2 way radio is a term to describe radio system for group call communication. The two way radio comes in several technical names such as Public Access Mobile Radio, Private Mobile Radio, Land Mobile Radio and Professional Mobile Radio. These present times, 2 way radios are often called “walkie talkies”. There are several kinds of two way…
  • The Importance Of Backing Up Your Data

    26 Jun 2014 | 2:40 pm
    Backing up your business data is not just a big deal, it is of the utmost importance. I know you have probably heard a million times from family, friends, and even business colleagues that you need to keep backups of your data. If you are sitting there thinking that you are always careful and that you would never need to keep backups, think again. To share a little story about myself, I run a few internet businesses, one of them being a content site. One late night, I was clicking away at the keyboard and was just about to finish my day with over 30 thousand words written that day. It had…

  • What Type Of Kenwood Connector Should You Use With A Kenwwod Radio

    Although there are multiple types and designs of Kenwood radios out there, there are only two earpiece connectors compatible with these radios. Kenwood has been able to design their earpiece connectors in such a way that they are compatible with all their vast types of radios. A large percentage of Kenwood radios utilize the 2 pin earpiece connector. Among the most popular radios using the 2 pin earpiece connector include TK3000 and TK3300. The difference between the two-pin connector and the multi pin connector is straightforward. The former features two pins while the latter features…
  • Audio Brand?

    Have you ever been on hold for a company and listened to some music on the line. It was probably this music that kept you on hold so you did not hang up in frustration. The thing is, this music is a really important marketing aspect that many companies usually overlook. I did a quick search and noticed that On Hold Marketing has been one of the things that customers have said that they do not want to be harassed with advertisements while they are on hold. Instead, you should try and create a “brand” with your on hold music with a tone and voice that fits the brand of your entire…

  • Matango: Attack of the Mushroom People (1963) Review

    Mark Pellegrini
    28 Jul 2014 | 8:52 am
    You know how I first heard about Matango? Through the Swamp Thing comic book, appropriately enough. The Matango entity was this hive-mind of fungus spores that infected people and turned them into giant walking mushrooms until they eventually died a horrible, horrible death. Of course, I just thought Matango was nothing more than a bizarre villain for Swamp Thing to battle and nothing more. Then, many a year later, I discovered that DC Comics ripped the idea off of one of Toho’s cult classic horror flicks from the 60’s, Matango (better known as Attack of the Mushroom People in the US, or…

  • The Night Flier (1998) Review

    Mark Pellegrini
    25 Jul 2014 | 11:19 am
    There have been so many movies based on Stephen King stories that I’m honestly quite surprised at how many of them I’ve seen. Save for a handful of the awful miniseries from the late 90s/early 00s, I’d say I’ve seen just about all of them. Still, occasionally one will slip through the cracks, awaiting my discovery. The Night Flier managed to travel below my radar for some time, most likely because I’d never heard of the short story on which it was based (collected in Nightmares & Dreamscapes, one of the few anthology collections by King which I do not own). Going in, all I had…

  • Review: 'Mindline', by M. C. A. Hogarth.

    Fred
    28 Jul 2014 | 9:44 pm
    This is the conclusion of M.C.A. Hogarth’s The Dreamhealers Duology. I reviewed the first book, Mindtouch, here on September 1, 2013. In that novel Jahir Seni Galare, the colorless elflike Eldritch esper, has just entered interstellar Seersana University. His roommate is Vasiht’h, a short, skunk-furred centauroid winged Glaseah. They are both espers, but Jahir is an involuntary telepath to whom the impact of other minds is painful. In the course of Mindtouch, the two aliens develop a strong friendship, Jahir learns to control his talent – somewhat – and the two graduate. Jahir intends…
  • 'Freedom Planet': A furry platformer inspired by furry platformers

    Sonious
    25 Jul 2014 | 2:42 am
    What would happen if Sonic the Hedgehog and Sparkster from the the Sega Genesis game Rocket Knight Adventures had a love child? Well, apparently it would produce a purple dragon. Most people would point out that this makes absolutely no biological sense. They would be right. I was talking metaphorically about game mechanics. Yes, Freedom Planet is a platformer featuring anthropomorphic characters in high speed platforming antics. There are certainly plenty of those to go around. But the thing that makes this one stand out is that it really does capture the essence of what made those titles…
  • Review: 'The Face in the Mirror' and 'Chained Reflections', by T. R. Brown

    Fred
    24 Jul 2014 | 10:52 pm
    These are the first two volumes of T.R. Brown’s Reflections series. Amazon.com has a special subcategory for them: Genetic Engineering Science Fiction. They should be required reading for every furry author who plans to write human-into-anthropomorphized-animal fiction. They are also good reading for everyone else. The two are narrated by the protagonist, Todd Hershel. The setting is an unspecified future, but there are automatic/robot cars, artificial islands (“Libertarian Colonies”) for dissidents, personal computers that unfold from pocket-size, artificially-grown organ harvesting,…

    The Tennessee Moonshiners defeated the Edmonton Totems in five games at the conclusion of the 2014 FBA Finals, giving the Eastern Conference club their first title in franchise history. The team’s four-year point guard Aragon Fisher (Otter, G) won 2014 Finals MVP. The contest made history by being the first FBA Finals series to feature a team out of Canada, with the Totems improving on their previous year when they reached the Western Conference Championship series but failed to enter the Finals. The Totems were heavily watched by fans of 2014 Most Valuable Player Rocky Caracal (Lynx, G)…

  • Movie Review: Hercules

    28 Jul 2014 | 2:30 am
    IMDB: Fourteen hundred years BCE, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labours and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and women never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be…
