The Speed of Fencing
Here is an excellent video of Epee fencing in slow motion.  Hard to see in real time but like this you can really see how graceful it is.

Subject: Please take action to end famine

Dear (everyone I know),
I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch ONE’s new video “The F Word: Famine is the Real Obscenity” and sign the petition to world leaders.

The reasons for the famine in the Horn of Africa are complex and solutions are difficult, especially in Somalia, but we can’t lose sight of some simple facts:

1. 30,000 children have died in just 3 months. Thirty thousand. With over 12 million people at risk.

2. Famine is not a natural catastrophe – drought doesn’t have to lead to famine. It can be prevented, as we’ve seen in much of Kenya and Ethiopia.

In the 21st century, it’s an obscenity that people are dying because they can’t get enough food to eat. Every one of those 30,000 children is part of a family – a son, a daughter, sister or brother. We can’t imagine what it must be like to starve to death, but most of us know what it’s like to lose someone we love.

Please watch the film and make use of the voice you have -- sign the petition.

It will make a difference in putting pressure on world leaders to do more to help those in need right now, and live up to promises already made to invest in the things proven to work – early warning systems...irrigation...drought resistant seeds… and of course, peace and security.

Please read about D'Meca Homer who is competing for the U.S. Virgin Islands in World Cup fencing!

Currently researching some wireless print solutions that will work with our PCounter print accounting system.  Seems like everyone has a laptop, iPad/Pod/Phone, a tablet PC or smart phone so this would allow users to print anywhere on our wireless network and authenticate to our system.  Let me know if you have any good leads.  PCounter is recommending EveryonePrint which seems to be a good solution with an easy to use interface.

Highlights from the InfoComm shows

InfoComm is famous for their huge trade shows.  You can see all of the newest AV and related technology showcased and learn just a ton of new things.  I couldn't go this summer since I was on vacation but I heard it was excellent.

Essentials of the AV Industry

Started taking the Essential of the AV Industry class from InfoComm.  Will be working to get my CTS certification.  That's Certified Technology Specialist for those of you who are not tech nerds.  :-)
