The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. It was named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. Erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World’s Fair, it was initially criticised by some of France’s leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; 6.98 million people ascended it in 2011.[2] The tower received its 250 millionth visitor in 2010.

The tower is 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. During its construction, the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument to assume the title of the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title…

Passages connect the present to the past, fantasy to reality
Art makes waves in every moment, cascading past boundaries
Did your wishes come true then vanish without sustaining life?
Do you know on what level you made agreements with strife?

Your essence continues to slowly distill itself into a concentrate
Unoriginal thoughts of little value bubble up, then evaporate
Did you think your ride would always be smooth until the end?
Do you possess the stamina to make solemn truth your friend?

Covert Commissions Review

Originally posted on Business Management and Technology:

The IM Wealth Builders have just released a plug & play system for earning turn-key affiliate commissions on autopilot.

This may be one of the best affiliate “systems” of its kind ever to be released.  It’s available at a discount as of this posting, but it will be well worth it even at the eventual membership pricing.

You can check it out at this link if you’re curious.dashboard-logo

Although I know how to build squeeze pages, sales pages, and sales funnels, they have completely eliminated the hard part and drastically reduced the learning curve by doing 99% of the work for you.

I’m particularly impressed to see Mike Long’s training on the inside.  Of course, he’s selling his big membership which I think is well worth the price tag, for what he delivers, but why not take advantage of his techniques on the cheap, while its available here.

So why should you give this system a look?  Here are…

FC Bayern – Prognose für den Rest der Saison

Originally posted on Frank Wilhelm Gaul's Blog:

0:2 gegen Gladbach zu Hause, vorher schon mal ein desaströses 1:4 gegen Wolfsburg – da darf man sich schon mal Gedanken machen über den restlichen Saisonverlauf des FC Bayern.

Arjen Robben fällt gefühlt für den Rest der Saison aus, Ribéry ist nicht fit.

Die Bayern werden Meister werden, aber im Pokal ist gegen Leverkusen Feierabend.

Und in der Champions League wird es ebenfalls sehr schwer werden, sollte man gegen Porto weiterkommen ist im Halbfinale chancenlos Schluß mit lustig.

So sehr ich auch die Verpflichtung von Pep Guardiola begrüßt habe, aber wenn wir sein Engagement Revue passieren lassen ist mit dem Kader die Ausbeute doch eher mager, gelinde gesagt.

Mario Mandzukic wurde ohne Not vom Hof gejagt, Lewandowski konnte ihn nicht mal ansatzweise ersetzen. Das Ausscheiden gegen Real Madrid letztes Jahr in der CL war ein absoluter Tiefpunkt mit einer Mannschaft, die zur Hälfte den kommenden Weltmeister stellte.

Handling multiple desktops in Windows 10

Introduction

Series of articles regarding finding your way about new Windows 10. A nice feature that comes along with Windows 10, is the ability to handle multiple desktops. This may sound a little gimmicky but, it helps avoid clutter if you’re a single monitor user (or multiple monitors for that matter!), and helps you organise your desktop to work more efficiently.

Creating a desktop.

All multiple desktop control is handled by the new task icon located on the new task bar, the “overlapping” screens icon can be found next to the new search icon (I still miss the charms)

Without any other additional desktops open clicking on the icon prompts to + Add a new desktop. Simply click on the prompt to open a new desktop, and be taken immediately to that new desktop. Each desktop has its own independent start menu feature

4 Ways to make GPS Ankle Monitors More Effective: Bill would force violent offenders to wear GPS ankle monitors – KOB.com

Originally posted on SoLoMo Consulting:

Once a violent offender serves his time in prison, they’re done. They walk out with no supervision, no GPS and no way to have their whereabouts tracked. But that may change here in our state, thanks to a woman named Alicia Phillips.

The potential fatal flaw, as has been identified in many case studies in recent years is that as long as the people wearing these cuffs are not monitored in real time using the software provided with them, then they still have ultimate freedom.

These systems come with tools like geofencing where areas are drawn on a map and alarms go off when people wearing bracelets enter the vicinity of that geofence. These could include a radius of the offender’s approved home and place of work, or areas that the victim might frequent. It might include a radius of schools, or known gang locations.
