Learn English Lesson #2 (Read + Speak + Study Questions) Banks are experiencing declining revenue amid lower demand for loans. Decreased revenue is flowing through to the bottom line; profits at most major banks are down significantly. To offset the poor business performance, banks are instituting new fees for mundane services such as bank statements, accounts and even the use of bank tellers. Consumers will find these measures absurd and expensive. Many people will have to close all of their bank accounts except one in order to reduce their monthly costs. Already faced with the high cost of living and anaemic job market, Americans are not welcoming these new fees. But what is driving the fee increases? Did the banks not receive enough taxpayer money? Looking closer into the matter reveals that the new financial reform bill is putting more rules and restrictions on banks that then must pass on the cost to their customers! Questions: What are banks doing to offset reduced profit? Banks are charging new fees to customers. What is the financial situation of consumers in America? The financial situation in America is characterized by few jobs and high cost of living. Why are the new fees being implemented? The new fees are implemented due to the new financial reform bill and reduced profitability.
My Suspension and Kudos to the YouTube Copyright Department My account was suspended sometime between July 23 and July 25 due to an obviously bogus DMCA. I wrote to YouTube on Aug. 3 showing them that the suspension was obviously bogus—it was sent by Jason Sherrelll—note the three ls in the last name. YouTube restored my Account on August 4, and on that they are to be commended. Special thanks to theninjasoulreaper, voger2100, gimmeabreakman, happycabbie, dprjones, and thunderfoot/beautyintheuniverse: Thunderf00ts other channel: Unfortunately, HappyCabbie's channel is temporarily set to private. Also special thanks to YouTubes copyright department for acting so quickly upon receiving my notice that the DMCA filed against me was bogus. YouTubes copyright department has come a long way from when they treated me like dirt when my channel was previously suspended for an OBVIOUSLY bogus DMCA. It should have taken them no more than 5 minutes to realize the DMCA against me was bogus, yet it took them 4 months to restore my account. Here is a link to my correspondence with them in 2007. See how much they have improved since then. www.themasked*** YouTubes copyright department deserves praise, but they still have a long way to go in implementing the DMCA in the spirit in which Congress passed it. Note that the DMCA only expects a REASONABLY IMPLEMENTED policy that terminates accounts IN APPROPRIATE CIRCUMSTANCES. www ...

Logic Gate. Check us out at A logic gate performs a logical operation on one or more logic inputs and produces a single logic output. The logic normally performed is Boolean logic and is most commonly found in digital circuits. Logic gates are primarily implemented electronically using diodes or transistors, but can also be constructed using electromagnetic relays (relay logic), fluidic logic, pneumatic logic, optics, molecules, or even mechanical elements. In electronic logic, a logic level is represented by a voltage or current, (which depends on the type of electronic logic in use). Each logic gate requires power so that it can source and sink currents to achieve the correct output voltage. In logic circuit diagrams the power is not shown, but in a full electronic schematic, power connections are required.

Alex Jones: Secret Copenhagen Documents Leaked 1/2 Alex Jones Breaks Down World Government Takeover In Alex's second special message about Climategate, the UN Climate Change Conference at Copenhagen and the Global Takeover, he ***yzes the leaked documents in a draft of the treaty that expose the true intentions of the meeting-- to shut down development in the Third World and dominate the planet through a carbon tax. Alex also exposes President Obama's cynical move to have the EPA declare CO2 to be a danger-- in the face of logic and common sense. Through this designation, regulation could be implemented in the name of cutting emissions even if the Senate were to fail to ratify the Copenhagen treaty, which Obama is expected to sign. Further, Alex points out that this scheme is just the implementation of a larger-scale plan to de-industrialize the already developed world and maintain control over the emerging spheres-- from Maurice Strong to Paul Ehrlich & now-Science Czar John P. Holdren, top globalists have targeted human activity as a negative and implemented eugenics policies to breakdown mankind's natural order. LONDON GUARDIAN: Copenhagen climate summit in disarray after 'Danish text' leak "The draft hands effective control of climate change finance to the World Bank; would abandon the Kyoto protocol the only legally binding treaty that the world has on emissions reductions; and would make any money to help poor countries adapt to climate change dependent on them taking a range of ...
EEVblog #193 - FPGA Implementation Tutorial Dave recently implemented an Actel Ignoo Nano and Xilinx Spartan 3 FPGA into a design, so decided to share some rather random notes on how to implement the FPGA's in this scenario. From datasheet specs, traps for young players, global clocks, FPGA fabrics, core power supplies and decoupling, getting the schematic basics, JTAG and flash PROM interfaces and finally PCB fanout and routing of a tiny 0.4mm pitch BGA package.

FEMA Detention Facilities (cententration camps) FOOTAGE See more news and www.videoclips247.com This video is PUBLIC DOMAIN. Please share freely. There over 800 prison camps in the United more... States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general's signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. Ask yourself if you really want to be on Ashcroft's list. The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a "mass exodus" of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons. Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation. The camps all have railroad ...

iRO WoE "WAVE vs Geffen/Gold" Old Valkyrie Days, before transcendant were implemented, WAVE Alliance (Wild-Blades, Aoi no Kaze, Valour, Endless Legacy and Heaven's Offense) defending Valkyrie 4 against the Gold and Geffen alliances (Gods of War, Lethal Death, Deity, a few Anonymous; Denuo Convena, Harbingers of Lloth, Visage and Aureus). After Valour lost the fort we took it back and held it for 156 days(I was in Aoi when we held the fort). This video was not recorded by me, it was recorded by a Dancer in Visage who sadly I do not know who she is, name is way too blurry but all the thanks to her for my favorite WoE Video, it was one of the best woe ever, all I did was add some music :P The combined forces of both alliances were unable to break us at all, Denuo Convena managed to break us alone with a surprise attack months after when transcendant were already implemented while everyone was attacking Geffen Alliance fort (GOLD alliance had no more econ fort :D )

Halloween Update! Let's Play Minecraft - Part 28 Halloween stuff came out before Halloween ( in my timezone) as I thought due to timezone differences. Here is some footage of me going through the Nether world that Notch has implemented. For every block in the Nether you travel, you go 16 in the normal world. Ghasts don't seem too hard cause they make such huge targets ;] Also ignore what I say about torches going out after a time. According to Notch's development blog he has not implemented that yet. I am hoping to make another little Halloween video that emphasizes the crafting aspect like the pumpkin helmets and stuff so stay tuned for that probably tomorrow.
Let's Build in Minecraft! Play Minecraft at: Minecraft is a Java game created by Markus Persson. It is a work in progress with new features to be implemented in the future. In this video, I show the basics of how to move around and create a basic house and underground tunnel. When saving is implemented, perhaps I'll work on a larger project to show in a future video. This video was made on May 22 2009, so many features may have been added or changed in future versions.
Obama Authorizes Assassinations Of US Citizens New TYT Facebook Page(!): Follow us on Twitter: ***: FREE Movies(!): Note: The above two links are for TYT sponsors. Read Ana's blog and subscribe at: TYT Network (new WTF?! channel): Check Out TYT Interviews Watch more at Digg TYT at http It has been confirmed by multiple newspapers that President Obama is willing to go even further than Former President George Bush in the 'War on Terror'. Glenn Greenwald wrote in late January about the "presidential assassination program" The following week, Obama's Director of National Intelligence, Adm. Dennis Blair, acknowledged in Congressional testimony that the administration reserves the "right" to carry out such assassinations. Anwar al-Awlaki, a Muslim cleric born in New Mexico but now living in Yemen, may be the first US citizen targeted for assassination by the CIA under a counter-terror policy established (but never implemented) by President George W. Bush and since embraced by President Barack Obama. This week, the New York Times and The Washington Post both confirmed that this policy exists and is being implemented.

The Global Flat Tax Revolution This mini-documentary from the Center for Freedom and Prosperity discusses the global flat tax revolution. There are now 24 flat tax jurisdictions (actually 25, but we didn't know about Trinidad & Tobago when the video was filmed), a remarkable development given the ideological opposition to tax reform from special interest groups and class warfare advocates. The six-minute video explains the key features of the flat tax revolution and highlights the reforms in Hong Kong, Estonia, and Iceland. The flat tax revolution has been especially strong in former Soviet-bloc nations, a rather ironic development since a so-called progressive income tax was a key tenet of Marx's Communist Manifesto.

#746 - CoolIT Freezone CPU Cooler (TEC) Video Review "The CoolIT Freezone CPU Cooler performs great, is easy to install, very quiet, and looks great. I really love how they've implemented the peltier reservoirs. Normally you'll see them implemented on a heatsink or right on the waterblock. The way this liquid cooling system is designed makes it work very well. I suspect there will be many more products in the near future using thermoelectric coolers.

Lady Jane Grey becomes queen. On this day in 1553, Edward VI died. On the 10thJune, Jane Grey, Edward's second cousin and granddaughter of Mary Tudor (Henry VIII's sister) was proclaimed queen. The action was divisive as many doubted the legality of the change in succession. According to Henry VIII's will, Edward's heir was his eldest sister, Mary. Mary was a devout Catholic and as such was not considered a desirable candidate by her staunchly Protestant brother. The succession of Mary threatened to undermine the Protestant reformation that had been implemented under Edward and this is a large factor as to why Edward moved against his sister. However despite various differences, many Catholics and Protestants came to regard Mary as the lawful heir and Jane did not have complete support from fellow reformers. It has been argued that Edward's actions were not legal because he never used parliament to change the succession. Basically, Henry VIII's plan for the succession was implemented via the form of an act of parliament which means that Henry had used parliament to legalise his succession. Edward came to objected his father's succession. But he did not use parliament to change the succession; instead his new plan was devised by himself (perhaps also the Duke of Northumberland) and approved by councillors. Also Edward was technically a minor and did not hold full powers alone, so there is some debate about whether he held the power to make such a decision. How Jane became Edward's heir is slightly ...
CBO Predicts Health Reform Deficit Happiness? Maybe Not On December 19, 2009, the CBO released an estimate that the health reform bill would reduce the deficits by $132 billion. The problem with this estimate was something that the CBO made as plain as day: They can only estimate the bill as it is written and make no estimation of how likely it is that a particular part of the bill will be implemented as it is written. My goal here was to satirize the fact that the health reform bill has been written with several parts that seem VERY unlikely (next to impossible) to be implemented as they are written. And yet, for consistency, the CBO makes no judgment call on the likelihood of the implementation. That's not their job.

RabbitMQ: An Open Source Messaging Broker That Just Works Google Tech Talks September 25, 2008 ABSTRACT RabbitMQ implements AMQP, the emerging standard internet protocol for business messaging. It also support numerous bridges to other messaging and internet protocols so is highly adaptable to many use cases. The core server is implemented in Erlang which is well known for delivering a highly scalable and stable environment for applications that involve messaging. When JP Morgan Chase introduced AMQP, Erlang seemed an obvious implementation choice. This talk will explain the rationale of this decision in detail and describe the technology and architecture of the server. Today RabbitMQ is used in solutions across multiple platforms and client languages such as Java, C#/.NET, Ruby, Python and Erlang. Come to this talk if you want to hear about: -Why did we choose Erlang? -How is RabbitMQ implemented? -Who uses RabbitMQ and why? -What will future designs do differently based on experiences in building and maintaining RabbitMQ? -How does the AMQP wire protocol compare to Protocol Buffers and RPC mechanisms in terms of latency, efficiency and scalability? -How does AMQP compare to XMPP? -How does the XMPP over AMQP bridge work and how are we using it for federated, open microblogging? Speaker: Alexis Richardson, Matthias Radestock, Tony Garnock-Jones, Ben Hood
