"Somewhere-Anywhere" by Sheila Elias

Sheila Elias is an artist, and the book entitled "Somewhere-Anywhere" is a collective artist's work with analyses and commentaries. "Somewhere-Anywhere" could be at any place and at any time. The uniqueness of her art work reflects on the post-modern condition that only a woman with her eye on urban neighborhoods and local communities can tell us a visual story in layers of emotions and colors on a daily life events that are "somewhere and anywhere." The flying human figures are messengers of hope and imaginary dream that could happen somewhere.

National EnGineering Week

It was announced a long-time ago about the National Engineering Week in February 19 to 25. So, it is coming soon. In the past blogs, it was slightly touched the surface of the unexpected connection in the dual attraction, the romance between modern technology and the cookery slang.
Today, let's imaging the classic Barbie doll acting as a 'career girl.' The Computer Engineering Barbie doll took a big place in my heart since her birthday on the winter day in 2010. Such a potential for girls to dream about leadership in technology, electronic engineering, and surroundings of computer technology!
So, keep in mind it, and let's us celebrate the capital 'G' in EnGineering standing for girls in engineering field. I know a very special lady with a PhD in Engineering, and she is an everyday inspiration, and a joy to follow. Sorry ladies, Lady Gaga and Lady in Red, today we are not against the pretty looks; but we, as parents and friends, have great expectations for our growing up young spring in education, careers, professional development, because future is calling for girls in science and technology, computer and electronic engineering.

Poetry of Earth: Mini Essay

"The poetry of earth is never dead," wrote John Keats, and, indeed, it is nature, the poetry of earth, that brings beauty into our lives, that forces us to change our plans, that affects our moods.
Nature sets a sky aflame at sunset, magically transforms a familiar landscape into a snow-white wonderland at north, paints our beautiful seagrape dinner-plate round leaves with glow of bright yellow and red shades of colors in the south.
Her Majesty Nature responsible for the cold days, blustery winds, for rain storms, and the cruel heat of high summer days. Nature is truly an intrinsic part of our lives.

How privileged we are under laughing blue sky and the blue ocean sigh, and merry birds twittering to cheer the evergreen scenes so dear with delights of the long, long nights.
The azure hue makes the best philosophy untrue against the arrows of the coming sun.

Fast Customer Apps

No matter what kind of smartphone people own, there are literally hundreds of thousands of apps available!
I think that one of the best is the Fastcustomer app. Why? From the consumer point of view, it is an additional 'reference desk' information or a 'chat-a-life' service. Fastcustomer waits on hold for the patron. There are 2,000 customer-service numbers, then, once the app has reached an actual human representative, it connects the caller -assuming the person hasn't hung up in the meantime.

'Ice Cream Sandwich' !?

Ice Cream Sandwich is the newest iteration of the Android operating system. Previous versions include Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, and Honeycomb. At first it was cute!

Window Phone Mango is a Microsoft's Operational System. Runs on phones like HTC Radar and Samsung Omnia W and focuses much more on social media integration.

The Lexicon

Technology is something that might want to be aware of.
Silk is not only the beautiful shiny fabric that is great for a pocket square handkerchief, or a flattering blouse.
Silk has a different meaning in technology slang. Instead of bogging down the Kindle Fire with a limited mobile browser, Silk processes Web sites 'silky way' using Amazon's cloud servers before sending the fully loaded sites to the user.
And Siri responds to thousands of voice commands and questions from traffic to the wardrobe. Siri is creepy and frightening, but extremely helpful. Siri is the digital personal secretary you always dream to have -she'll type out entire texts or e-mails that you dictate. The old joke really allows to have a secretary who knows how to write and spells it correctly. But please, do not tell it to your second-grader or it is too late, and he or she already knew it since yesterday.

Each Year Brings Memories

Each year brings memories that bless our lives with joy.
Wishing you all the joy of pleasant memories and all the happiness, you all, so deserve!
Don't you?! It is time to create new memories, fulfill new dreams, and start a new annual plan!
Take it from a Librarian, "a good plan is 50% of successful resolution."
Collect your creative juices and begin the rejuvination. Catch the happy tears that will for sure flow during any special celebration of success "for luck and love and health and wealth and all good things for all of you." (iDA)
