There has been rumors about the end of the world for as long as I remember, some include the Y2K, the Antichrist, and more, but as time goes by humanity and all living things has continued to survive.
If you find time and you don’t know what else to search in the internet, try going to Google and type in “2012” and check the large amount of web sites instructing you on survival tips, scientific predictions of what might happen such as a complete melt down of the polar ends, thus raising the water levels to extreme altitudes and reducing the oceans salinity to a point where the current that makes the world rotate will stop or even start to rotate in the inverse direction.

How do you think the government of all the countries will tell their people? Is one of the questions ask in the trailler of the movie “2012” supposed to be released this fall. The film looks like they will take the global warming approach, by melting the ice in the polar end of the world and rising the water level to the top of the himalaya and destroying everything in its path.

But why are we creating such commotion over 2012? And better yet, why December 21, 2012? It all comes down to the Mayan calendar were 2012 is the end of a 5,126 year cycle, an ancient civilization well known for the advanced knowledge of the astronomy. The Long Count calendar was one of several created by the ancient Maya and it consists on the following units of time:

kin = one day

uinal = 20 days

tun = 360 days (18 uinal)

katun = 7,200 days (20 tun)

baktun = 144,000 days (20 katun)
December 21, 2012, would be written as and the day after that as

Do you believe the world is going to end? The Mayan Calendar does not stop it resets itself, or maybe it means a rebirth, either way it continues to work. If the cycle is every 5,126 years, then it only means it will continue to re-occur, thus life will continue, maybe not as we know it but it will continue nonetheless, the world will probably have to forego through some extreme changes, but the world will endure it as much as it has. The question is, for how long?

Free TV

If I was to tell you that you could save some money every month by turning off your cable service, would you do it? Or would you give me a question as an answer “Were would I watch TV then?” If I was to tell you that you can watch TV from the internet for free, would you believe it? Well I guess you better do, according to CNN, more and more Americans are turning their cable off to watch their favorite shows online.
New web sites like and Joost, are now uploading TV series, and shows, as well as movies for people to see them online at their on schedule. The web sites only require for you to create a free account, and voila! Now you can see all their movies in your computer or laptop.
If you are savvy in the tech field, I would suggest to you to connect your computer system to your TV and enjoy the service while you save something extra every month.

Alright people, if you were thinking about getting a new car any time soon, now is the time, the government just made enduring this crisis a little more easier on your transportation problems.
The senate approved this past Tuesday a tax cut for the people who is willing to buy an American car between November 12, 2008 and December 31, 2009; for those individuals earning an annual income of less than $125,000 and couples of less than $250,000, the tax cut will be applied towards the first $49,500 of the price of the car.
So if you were thinking on getting those nice cars that GM and Ford are coming up with, you should definitely start walking towards the closest dealer and see if an American car or truck fits your style, take a look at the new Ford F-150 with deals like 0% APR financing for 60 months or up to $7,500 back, now that is a deal.

Courtesity of Washinton Post

Ever thought that it will be nice to catch up with some one for lunch by running into them, or have you thought about where is your family when they are not answering your calls. According to the Washington post, Google has now released the technology adapted to Google maps that allows you to locate a person via their cell phones called Google Latitude.
It indicates their exact location by using the satellite information and Wi-Fi access around you. Does this mean that anyone can locate you? No, Google has made it clear that every user will have the opportunity to turn it on and off at their will and you will be in control of who gets to see your location.
Personally, I think that this service is great if you are the type of person who might think that your career put in jeopardy the life of your love ones, but if you are and Average “Joe the Plumber” you might want to be careful to whom you add on monitor. For example, if you install the system into your kid’s cell phone, you might do it only for security and to be aware of the where about of their daily activities, but for them it might be an invasion of trust.
What do you think about this new technology? Will you use it? And who will you let track you?

It is finally here, one of the most viewed shows in history will finally air tonight at 6pm EST, the battle against the experience team vs. the Cinderella story, Steelers vs. Cardinals, hand in hand for four hours.
Who will win this war? Both teams have the tools to become the next Super Bowl champion, and my guess it will all go down on the last quarter, where the pressure will crack even the most experienced players, and it will bring strength to those who have hope. In the last fifteen minutes of the game we will see who wants more.
If you are at the stadium, at a bar or at home watching the game, you will be in for a night of entertainment.
