Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol

If the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol came knocking at my door with their $10 million check, I’d (after the obligatory whooping and hollering for the cameras) be ordering plane tickets so I could spend my winter where there is no winter. Perhaps follow Mr. Sun on his southward trek to Argentina. November through February in Buenos Aires, the Paris of the southern hemisphere, would be nice.

Where did summer go? Wasn’t it just yesterday, in the exuberance of spring’s balmy breezes, daffodils, and birdsong, that I was putting into the ground the young plants that now, bedraggled and ratty, I’m pulling up?

I bid sad farewell to the tomato plants that, despite their head-high reach, produced few tomatoes. Too hot to set fruit, the experts said. For a two-week period in July, though, there was a glorious abundance, enough even to share with neighbors. But, as hundred-degree day followed hundred-degree day, they just sulked.

Usually, with summer’s wane, there would be a goodly number of green tomatoes to be picked for ripening inside the house over coming weeks. This year, zilch, nada — just barren head-high plants.

Somewhere toward the end of August, one plant that I’d grown from seed — an heirloom variety, the name of which I now haven’t a clue — produced a lone tomato that, by the time it was ripe, was almost as big as my cupped hands and weighed almost a pound.

In all my years on this planet, I’ve never grown such a tomato. If it had been county fair time, it certainly would’ve won a prize ribbon. When I sliced it to eat, it was like red, juicy butter, its taste sublime — every supermarket excuse-for-a-tomato would cringe in shame at its deliciousness.
I wish I could remember the variety, or even where I got the seed, so next year I could plant more. It will be the tomato against which all future tomatoes are judged.

Although days can still be hot through October, with lingering sweaty humidity, sunrise is later, dark comes earlier, nights and early mornings are colder. Shadows lengthen, sunlight is more golden, diffuse; yellow fall butterflies flit through the air, seeking nectar in the remaining blossoms; woolly worms are crossing the roads, going who-knows-where, and soon 10 million dead leaves will need to be raked.

In early September, even before the nights began cooling and the pollen from giant ragweed began blowing about, my sinuses knew the season was changing. From now until next March I’ll gobble antihistamines to try and suppress sneezes and sniffles.

I am not a fan of winter — don’t like the cold, rainy, dreary, too-short days, the dull, gray, featureless landscape, the too much forced confinement to indoors.

If the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol came knocking at my door with their $10 million check, I’d (after the obligatory whooping and hollering for the cameras) be ordering plane tickets so I could spend my winter where there is no winter. Perhaps follow Mr. Sun on his southward trek to Argentina. November through February in Buenos Aires, the Paris of the southern hemisphere, would be nice.

Dream on. Instead, I’ll shiver and sniffle through another winter as best I can, a passel of good books at the ready, dreaming of next summer’s tomatoes…

Daylight Savings 2011: When It Ends And Why We Use it

No, it's not your imagination. You really have waited longer to get that extra hour of sleep this year.

In fact, Daylight Saving Time (DST) comes to an end on the morning of Sunday, November 6, when you move the clocks back one hour. Or, you forget to move the clocks back one hour and find yourself at work an hour early before the office lights are even turned on.

The extended DST began back in 2007, after the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005 came into effect and the clocks were set back one hour on the first Sunday of November instead of the last Sunday of October, reports International Business Times. They also changed the start of DST to the second Sunday of March from the first Sunday of April.

There's been a number of conflicting reports about how much energy is saved from Daylight Saving Time. Back in the 1970's, studies showed we saved 1% of energy nationally, which was a big motivation for adopting DST. On the one hand, states like California argue the energy savings are negligible. But another report published in 2008 by the U.S. Department of Energy concluded 4 weeks extra of daylight savings time could conserve 1.3 trillion watt-hours per day, enough to power 100,000 homes for a year, reports Scientific American.

Though Benjamin Franklin first came up with the idea in 1784, TimeandDate.com explains, DST wasn't used until World War I to conserve energy. The U.S. observed year-round DST during World War II and implemented it during the energy crisis in the 1970's, notes the Scientific American.

Not everyone across the U.S. observes Daylight Saving Time, including Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.

A post by Chris Kline on ABC15.com discusses why most of Arizona doesn't observe the time change: "According to an Arizona Republic editorial from 1969, the reason was the state's extreme heat. If Arizona were to observe Daylight Saving Time, the sun would stay out until 9 p.m. in the summer (instead of 8 p.m., like it does currently)."



NOTE: The technical term for the occasion is daylight saving time, not daylight savings time.

Pottermore Secrets



Gulping gargoyles! Just when it seemed the Harry Potter franchise was finally avada kedavra-ed, J.K. Rowling has launched the website “Pottermore” to continue the story of the young boy wizard. (See what she's doing with the wordplay there?)

The site, which Rowling launched via YouTube, will sell her seven Potter novels as e-books and audiobooks in several different languages. It will also reveal background details on characters and settings Rowling says she's been “hoarding for years.”

Fans will have 18,000 words of new Harry Potter content to devour in a matter of hours. Meanwhile, Rowling has deftly cornered the market on proceeds from the sale of her books online, without having to pay Apple or Amazon one galleon.


The site launches on July 31 (Mr. Potter's birthday), when one million fans can compete in an online challenge to gain early access. Pottermore opens its gates to the masses for free on October 1, 2011.

But what is the site like? Those hoping for a sophisticated first-person odyssey may be disappointed. Pottermore isn't a game: it's a series of illustrated environments, themed around “moments” from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (material from the other novels will be added with time). The primary attraction for Potterphiles is access to arcana Rowling's been squirreling away in her attic. Want to know why Harry's uncle is called Vernon Dursley? Or learn about Prof. Minerva McGonagal's early heartbreak?  You can find it on the site, although you may have to click around a bit to uncover the hidden treasures.

Users start out at Privet Drive, where they can explore Harry's cupboard under the stairs (replete with scampering spiders) before moving on to Platform 9 ¾, the Hogwarts Express, Diagon Alley and Gringotts. Each new witch or wizard gets a personalized trunk (where they can store their chocolate frog cards), 175 galleons and a Hogwarts shopping list (don't forget your crystal phials!) Then they're directed to Ollivander's, where they are asked a series of questions (eye color? Favorite artifact?) in order that their wand can choose them.

With personalized wand in hand, users continue on to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry itself, where, wearing the sorting hat, they are sorted into a House via a unique series of character testing questions written by Rowling herself. Some test the super-ego: would you snitch on a fellow wizard pupil who used a cheating quill? Others probe the id: which do you choose, forests or rivers? (Those who are not placed in Gryffindor get access to special material from The Sorcerer's Stone as compensation.) Once ensconsed in a house common room, users can read the secret lore of Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff, meet housemates, and earn housepoints through wizard duels and mixing potions to compete for the House Cup.

While the environments do have some animated features (Scabbers lurking behind the cabin curtains in the Hogwarts Express, owls and ravens flying about), Pottermore is no World of Warcraft. Rowling wanted to keep the emphasis firmly on reading and the "literary experience," which is why Pottermore's environments are more like digitized pop-up books than a graphic adventure game. (While the environments share some similarities to the films, they are not based on them. And there are no avatars.)

Rowling is also encouraging user contributions to Pottermore. Users can jabber on the site about the benefits of dragon heartstring vs. Thestral tail hair wand cores to their heart's delight. Fans can even submit art.

Given the boxes of material gathering dust in her house, Rowling hasn't ruled out the possibility of creating a Harry Potter encyclopedia. She says she has “no plans” for another Harry Potter book. From now on, Harry Potter will live in the digital age. Talk about magic.

Info Amy Winehouse Dead

Info Amy Winehouse Dead
Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment Saturday (July 23), her publicist confirmed to CNN. The U.K. singer was 27 years old.

A press release from Metropolitan Police does not specify Winehouse by name, but reads: "Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05 hours today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased. On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene. Inquiries continue into the circumstances of death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained."

Winehouse canceled her European tour last month, and has long struggled with substance abuse.

On June 18, Winehouse performed the first show of that European tour at Forest Fest in Belgrade, Serbia, but things went terribly wrong. The Brit songstress reportedly showed up more than an hour late and then once there, she repeatedly left the stage mid-performance. Winehouse forgot lyrics to her songs and even dropped the mic as a disgruntled crowd of 20,000 booed her set. After the show, she canceled festival appearances in Turkey and Greece.

Apart from her touring plans, Winehouse was also reportedly working on the follow-up to her award-winning Back to Black, but a concrete release date for the album was never established.

Earlier Saturday, Winehouse's management team released a statement confirming she was pulling out of all gigs to concentrate on her recovery: "Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances. Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen."

Amy Jade Winehouse, born September 14, 1983, exploded onto the U.K. scene in 2003 with her debut album, Frank, which was nominated for the Mercury Prize, the award given to the year's best British or Irish album. After a string of well-received festival gigs and an Ivor Novello songwriting award, she began work on the album that would make her an international star: Back to Black, released Stateside in 2007.

Teaming with producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson (and the New-York based Dap Kings ensemble), Winehouse crafted a sound that was heavily indebted to the girl groups of the 1950s and '60s and, when combined with her smoky vocals and towering beehive hairstyle, served as a welcome antidote to the electronic-based pop music of the day. Buoyed by the success of iconic single "Rehab" — and Winehouse's near-constant coverage in the tabloids — Back To Black became a worldwide phenomenon, topping the charts in the U.K. (where it would be the year's best-selling album) and earning Winehouse five Grammys, including Record and Song of the Year and Best New Artist.

Following the success of Back to Black, Winehouse toured the world, and began a star-crossed (and much-covered) relationship with a former video-production assistant named Blake Fielder-Civil. Around the same time, several media outlets began reporting extensively on the couple's drug use and, in 2008, Fielder-Civil served time in prison after an altercation with a bar owner. During this period, Winehouse also had several run-ins with the law, including a 2007 arrest for possession of marijuana in Bergen, Norway, a "common assault" charge in early 2008 and, most famously, a May 2008 arrest stemming from a video of her smoking what appeared to be crack cocaine. She avoided jail time in each instance but, at the urging of her father, the singer made several attempts to get clean, repeatedly checking herself into rehabilitation facilities. Her last stint in rehab reportedly took place in May of 2011.

During all of this, Winehouse had also begun working on the follow-up to Back to Black, heading to the island of St. Lucia with Remi to record tracks. In July 2010, Winehouse made a surprise appearance at a Ronson show in London, flubbing the lines to the producer's song "Valerie." A few days later, she told the U.K.'s Metro newspaper that the new album was due in January and would follow in the footsteps of Black's retro leanings.

She recorded a version of Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" for legendary producer Quincy Jones' Q: Soul Bossa Nostra album, and was also tapped to sing with Tony Bennett on his upcoming Duets II album, which is due in September.

In the hours following her death, Winehouse's American record label, Universal Republic, said in a statement: "We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer. Our prayers go out to Amy's family, friends and fans at this difficult time."

Keeping Your Soil Healthy

Soil is the most vital component in all your gardening activities. It's therefore important to know the condition of your soil before venturing into home gardening. If your soil is healthy, you'll produce quality vegetables and fruits, and mostly likely you'll become successful in growing organic fruits and vegetables.

The quality of your soil depends on the available nutrients it provides based on the stand of your crops grown in the garden. If your plants are healthy, it goes to show that your soil is healthy. There's a symbiotic relationship between a good soil and the vigorous plants that grows within.
I have identified some ways to make your soil healthy for your guidance.

1. Use natural organic fertilizer. All forms of natural organic soil fertilizers are good for the soil. There's no side effect with organic fertilizer as against synthetic fertilizer which affects your soil to become acidic when continuously used to your plants. There are lots of natural organic fertilizer that you can use as soil enhancer like; fish and seaweed fertilizers, compost, animal manures, and vermi-compost ( derived from worm composting).

2. Analyze your soil. Have your soil tested to know the available elements present in your soil. Soil sampling is not complicated, but you need the assistance of an expert in soil testing. Seek the advice from your soil laboratory expert in your area to do the work for you. Though you would spend an amount for their services, it's worth the expenses for the information you'll get for the maintenance of your garden to be always in good shape.

3. Keep your garden always well-drained. Don't allow your garden to be water-logged. A well-drained soil is ideal for easy field operations since it dries up fast easily and doesn't hinder your timely planting. In well-drained soil, the free flow of oxygen is able to reach the root zone to promote optimal root health. Optimal root growth happens best in soils without drainage problem.

4. Avoid working on wet soil. Don't work on your soil when it's wet since it causes compacting the soil down and push out the air and water will not pass through the soil. There will not be enough space for the roots to grow. Compact soil will not give good crop yield and becomes hard to cultivate. Wait until the ground is dry before you start cultivation to make planting easy.
5. Make a raised beds to avoid stepping on the plants. It's essential to make your garden in raised beds to avoid stepping on your plants which may cause the soil be compacted that would affect the plant's growth. When you've your raised beds, there's an alleyway where you can walked through and your plants are safely protected from being destroyed.

Other methods can be applied to make your soil to be always in good shape, but the ones I've identified are enough to get you started to maintain in tip top condition.

Happy gardening!

Building a Child's Healthy Self Esteem

A child responds positively to praise and positive attitudes when they are frequently given genuine positive feedback. Praise is not something that can be given once in a while, it has to be consistent. Their behavior at home and in the classroom improves when they feel good about themselves. They achieve more and are motivated to be a success. They develop and go through life with a "can do" attitude not an "I can't" attitude. It is the significant adult in a child's life that can make or break how that child sees themselves. Children are like sponges and they will absorb everything you say or do.

It is important that we, as the adults in a child's life, know that the praise we give has a better effect if we are specific. Saying "I'm proud of you" is great. It is even better if we say what behavior has us feel proud of them. An example might be: "Look, you cleaned your room so well by putting all those cars back in their special place and they are lined up perfectly. I am so proud of you." Can you see that the next time the child does the task they know what it was they did that was acceptable? They want to repeat it and even do better. They feel confident and a confidant child has a healthy self esteem. They become self motivated and, when they go to school, they have higher academic achievements.

We, as the child's most important influence, can support their healthy and high self esteem by using the following suggestions.

Focus on all the positive they are doing. Put your attention on what they did that was correct, good, kind, compassionate. Even if they didn't do a task perfectly, praise them on what was done well. An example might be if the child helped you fold towels and the towels weren't done as perfect as you would do. Tell them, "I am so grateful you helped me fold all these towels. I like how you have stacked them!"

Help them to feel valued. A child builds a high self esteem when they feel valued and appreciated. Thank them for their participation or helping in some way. Notice when they have done something, even something small, to be helpful, such as, putting their dish in the sink, hanging their jacket up, putting their book back after looking at it.

Be conscious of criticism and avoid it to the best of your ability. When you find you have criticized, apologize. When we apologize we teach our children that it is OK to notice our mistakes and to take responsibility for them. A child looks at you like you know everything and will mimic what you do. If you are critical a child becomes critical and usually of themselves.
Help build a positive body self image by complementing them. Tell them what beautiful eyes they have, how strong their body is, how darling their hands are or how beautiful they look to you. When they accomplish a physical task, like learning to skip, let them know how wonderful it is to have a body that can do that.

Remember, a child's eyes are always upon you. How you treat them lets the child know if they are loved, valued, respected, appreciated or accepted. That old saying of "sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you" is a lie. Your words can stifle the life out of a child. They believe what you say. Tell them they are brilliant and will be a great success in life.
Be realistic about what they can or can't do at their particular stage in their life. We want to set our children up for success and we do that by giving them task that we know they can complete. Asking a four year old to do the laundry is unrealistic, but asking them to help separate the light clothes from dark clothes is something they could do by making it a game.

Our goal is to assist our children to be a healthy, happy, and productive adults. We want them to live the life they were meant to live. Healthy self esteem, developed in childhood, will be carried with them throughout their lives and will help them cope effectively with all the challenges adults have to face. Make it your priority to encourage and support the children in your life.

Weeding out the Crap

Since even you lowly peasants of the Empire deserve some good news.
It appears that one should stock up on RoundUp futures. The lackluster, and that’s as much of a British Understatement as calling a public restroom “unsanitary”, GOP field of hopefuls appears to be withering away in a most satisfactory fashion.
First we learned that Mike Fuckindweeb apparently isn’t running for President after all — after he milked the mystery for all of the ratings he could possibly get — which made us sigh a sigh of relief that surely caused at least a minor hurricane in China. We can hope, anyway.

Then we learned that Mr. Combover, aka “The Donald”, apparently isn’t going to play Ross Perot to Ogabe’s Clinton in 2012. Again, a massive sigh of relief from the Imperial Capital. Don’t get us wrong, we like Mr. Trump and found it highly amusing to see how the lawn jockey Mr. Gutsy in the White House jumped when he, for the first time, was faced with a pissed-off American who didn’t decide to roll over because Rick Moran and Allahpundit, not to mention the rest of the RINO posse, told him he wasn’t being “helpful”. But a presidential candidate he’s not.
And finally we found out that Newt Gingrich picked up the political equivalent of a Mossberg, shoved the barrel in his mouth and pulled the trigger with his toe when he declared himself fully in favor of forcing Americans to buy health insurance and, in the process, labeled the only sane and actually effective proposal for getting us out of our current financial quagmire, Paul Ryan’s plan, “radical” and offered instead, showing his true allegiance to the GOP RINO pissant milquetoast brigades, to kick the can a bit further down the road.
The only downside to this is that Allahpundit is now going to have a hard time figuring out which stock photo to jack off to after he plasters it all over Hot Air. Mittens or Newtie?
There’s this setting in your browser where you can tell it to block out pictures. Try it. It has made it possible for us, once again, to enjoy Hot Air.
But we digress.
Actually, we have this sinister, tin-foil hat conspiracy theory that Allahpundit is really trying to turn us off RINOs by constantly posting their grinning, smug, self-adoring mugs at least 27 times a day. If so, he’s quite successful.
Seriously. It could work. Think “A Clockwork Orange”. We know it’s working on us already. The mere sight of Mittens “OgabeCare” Romney makes us think of napalm being sprayed over little adorable puppies at this point. And, worst of all, it turns us ON!
Anyway. It’s been a good week for getting rid of the more bothersome RINO loons.
Thatisall.

Weeds Weeding

Weeds are the kind of plants which are very injurious for the health and beauty of the garden. They destroy the garden little by little and take out the nutrients from the soil. They also block the roots of your favorite plants. The best way to deal with weeds is to destroy them as soon as possible, before they manage to get deep into the soil. As compared to old gardens, new gardens are more weed prone. However, after several years of growing your garden, these problems of weeds may stop but you must not ignore it whenever it comes. Getting rid of weeds also keeps your lawn in a good condition.

As you might have noticed, weeds can grow anytime and anywhere. They also need sunlight, water and other nutrition to grow. They block the way of regular plants to grow properly. You may think that mowing the grass can clean out all the weeds, but in fact, it does not reach to the root of the problem. You need to bend and extract the weeds from their roots because if you leave them, the weeds will keep growing and growing doing the bigger damage to other plants.
While removing weeds, you need some protective gear which includes things like hat, gloves and full sleeves shirt. Weeds can be toxic so you need to protect yourself from these. In addition, you need to protect yourself from sun as well. Also, keep a plastic bag with you to put all the weeds you pull out. If you leave these pull out weeds in the lawn itself, they will grow again. Pull out the weeds along with roots otherwise they will grow again and again.
In case of difficult weeds, dig the ground a little bit deeper. To easily take out the weeds, water the ground before weeding. It will soften the earth and loosen the roots. In addition, it is also quite important to choose proper time to do the job. Do this either early in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the glare of the sunlight. Use a small trowel to extract the weeds.
When you collect the weeds, never use these pull out weeds as mulch. Seeds of these weeds would grow again and proliferate. Also, do not burn them, as they may be toxic and can release toxic fumes. Do not add them to the compost fill and also do not eat them.
To properly dispose of them, put them in the trashcan placed outside your house. Repeat this weeding process every week to stop their proliferation altogether.
Weeding is a hard work but if done properly it will spare you further efforts in the future. If you have any doubts or need advice on your specific case, you can always rely on opinion of a professional gardener. He can even give you a good start doing the weeding for you and showing all the tricks. After all, it's a nice feeling to have a "quality" garden where you can spend the time.

Weeding Techniques

Hand weed mixed borders and use a hoe to clear annual weeds from bare soil between plants. Perennial weeds can be removed by hand where practicable or killed with a spot treatment weed killer. Large weeds are easier to treat with a glyph sate based, ready to use spray, but cover all nearby ornamental plants with a plastic sheet before spraying and leave the sheet in position until the spray is dry. For lawns, remove isolated weeds by hand using an old knife or a special weeding tool. Alternatively, kill them using a spot weed killer.

If the weed problem is more widespread, it is more efficient to use a specially formulated lawn weed killer. Where moss is also a problem it is a good idea to use a combined moss and weed killer treatment in spring. In patio and paths, remove individual weeds by hand using an old knife or a special weeding tool. Alternatively, kill them with a spot weed killer. Where the problem is really widespread you need to use a path weed killer, which will kill existing weeds and prevent further weed problems for the rest of the year.

If there are no ornamental plants, dig over the entire area, hand weeding as you go. If this is not practicable, remove all the top growth and cover the area with black plastic or old carpet for a few years. A glyph sate based weed killer is another option. Stubborn weeds, such as bramble, may need several applications, or you could use the more potent chemical, sodium chlorate, although you will not be able to plant the treated area for at least six weeks afterwards. Deep rooted perennial weeds that have long, penetrating roots are best forked up. Loosen the roots with a fork, and hold the stem close to its base as you pull up the whole plant.

If you do not get the entire root out, the plant may re-grow. Hoeing is one of the best forms of annual weed control, but it needs to be done fairly regularly. Slice the weeds off just beneath the soil, preferably when the soil is dry. Keep beds and borders as well as the vegetable garden hoed throughout the growing season. Contact chemical weed killers are useful if you need to clear an area of ground quickly and easily. Some types, which normally kill only the top growth, so are better for annuals than problem perennial weeds, leave the area safe to replant after a day.

Valentine’s Day Jewelry

Jewelry makes a great gift for any occasion, but especially for Valentine’s Day and other romantic holidays or events. This is because you can buy jewelry for both men and women, and it is extremely easy to personalize pieces of jewelry. Traditionally, necklace was seen as being exclusively for women. Nowadays, though, jewelry is becoming increasingly unisex. Before, the number of jewelry items or the material and color might have differentiated between men’s jewelry and women’s jewelry. For example, men usually wore one earring instead of earrings on both ears, and men typically stayed away from diamonds and gold. However, even that line has become blurred in today’s society. Therefore, if your significant other, whether that is a man or a woman, likes jewelry, then you should consider getting him or her Valentine’s Day gift.

Niche Rugs Usa Best Keyword

Rugs USA not kidding!

As you know, I've been looking for a new store revenue streams by developing small niche sites outside money today. Part of my pleasure is with Market Samurai into the net for the keywords that I can comb build a niche site on. Yes, it's really funny to me and I will see you as a nerd, if you just remember ... I conclusion, nerd growing online

However, while the session keyword search, I found one hell of keywords!

Rugs USA

This may not seem like much, but trust that you make a killing if you work this right. Let's look at the numbers ...

According to Market Samurai, you get carpets USA about 145 searches per day. This is not the greatest, but it's not bad. Especially when you consider the estimated CPC keyword. (CPC stands for Cost-Per-Click, the amount that advertisers are prepared each time someone clicks on their ads pay.

Before I tell you estimate CPC usa carpet, maybe you should sit. Are you sitting?

Ok, after the Google keyword tool, the estimated CPC for exact phrase match keyword "carpet USA" ...

$ 3,080.96!

Do not believe me? That's cool, I do not blame. I'll wait here while you go check yourself. Or better yet, here's a screenshot I just ...


Now before you go crazy with a picture of him swimming in a giant money bin like Scrooge McDuck, you should know that it's very unlikely you will actually see that the value per click.

First of all, the act is only approximate. Samurai market actually shows a much smaller amount of $ 1,306.98 (but still damn impressive, and far better than the 5-cent clicks that you already have!

In addition, the CPC is the amount paid will be the No. 1 among advertisers in Google's search results. Prices can be very different to the content network and it is the number of bloggers have received in payment. I suspect that carpet the United States, advertises a reasonable amount to protect their brand, as the other keywords with the highest cost per click is also variation of the name brand. But whatever their motives, it is clear that Rugsusa.com not playing games!

However, probably worth glancing blow to the keyword. The top 5 sites currently in place are very strong and could hardly be solved without a lot of damn work. But the bottom half the top 10 are much weaker. There is a possibility for a location was established to sneak on the first page with a decent article on Carpet USA. And if they do, they will be able to learn the true potential for profitability of keywords with the highest cost per click.

Lindsay's Criminal Battery Case

Just when Lindsay Lohan thought her legal problems couldn't get any worse ... TMZ has learned cops are reigniting their investigation into allegations she attacked a Betty Ford staffer.

Sources connected to the investigation tell us ... in the last two days, the Riverside County District Attorney's Office sent investigators to meet with key witnesses who were with Lindsay on December 12, 2010 -- the night she allegedly got into a tussle with Dawn Holland.

We're told cops told the witnesses they were conducting the investigation because the D.A. is still determining whether to pursue criminal assault charges against Lohan.

Sources tell us ... investigators wanted to know if the witness could testify if it was Lindsay or Dawn who was the "aggressor" during that fateful night. They also wanted to know if the witness could describe any sort of injury Dawn may have suffered during the incident.

We're told investigators also wanted to know if the witnesses would cooperate with authorities if the case went to trial ... but sources say the witnesses wouldn't give a definitive answer.

2011 Alienware Aurora ALX

2011 Alienware Aurora ALX

Alienware has been known for making some of the best gaming computers for years. What stands out when you first see the Alienware Aurora ALX is the almost alien look and feel to their tower. Now don’t let this persuade you that it’s all look and no power; Alienware delivers quite a bit of power into this gaming PC. The Aurora ALX is not the top-of-the-line gaming PC, but it proves that this company knows how to make a gaming system for those who don’t need the most powerful product on the market. The mid-range hardware found in this system will be more than enough for all but the most hardcore gamers.

Video/Audio:
While the Alienware Aurora ALX gaming PC may not have the most robust video card, it is still on the high end of things and will have no problem getting the job done for another year or two. If you are the kind of person who wants a system that will handle new games for years we would suggest going with dual cards or at least a more high-end card. The ATI Radeon HD 6870 has a core clock speed of 850MHz, which is quite fast and has 1GB of video memory. The audio in this system is a 7.1 surround sound system integrated on the motherboard.

Processor:
The processor in a computer is like the heart in a human body; when it's working well so is your computer. The Aurora ALX gaming PC is sporting the Intel Core i7-930 processor that runs at 2.8GHz. This is actually towards the bottom end of the i7 series. We would suggest upgrading to go with at least the i7-960 model for that extra power so you don’t have to upgrade your CPU a year from now.

Memory/Storage:
Another one of the main things you will be looking for in a high-end gaming PC is the RAM (random access memory). Without enough RAM your computer simply won’t be able to handle what it is meant to do. The Alienware Aurora ALX has 6GB of DDR3 RAM, which is plenty for any game or program you desire to throw at this gaming PC. The one downside we found with all of the Alienware systems is the lack of SSD (solid state drive) storage upgrades. The base model comes with a 1TB hard drive which is a lot of storage space but does not hold a candle to the speed of an SSD.

Additional Features:
The final thing you will need to focus on when you go looking for a gaming PC is the type of OS (operating system) it is running. Like the majority of companies out there Alienware has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed on every system for stability and ease of use. You will also find a blazing-fast 24x DVD+/-RW optical drive, eight USB ports for additional expansion and gaming extras (joystick, gaming controller, etc.). The mATX LGA 1366 Intel X58 motherboard is powered by an 850-watt power supply which is perfect for making future upgrades. Now if you want to not only have an amazingly powerful system but also one that looks otherworldly you can add additional lighting to give it an extra-terrestrial look.

Support/Warranty:
Computers, however convenient and useful, can cause a lot of headache if something isn't working correctly. Dell’s site offers just about every type of help for troubleshooting problems with your gaming PC. You can also download drivers for your video card and order other hardware directly from their site. If you run into any problems within the first year of having the computer, simply send in your computer and they will get things working again. A three-year warranty is an option and might be a good choice since computers are not always predictable.

Summary:
Alienware has been a major name in gaming PCs for a long time, and it doesn’t look like that’s about to change. The Alienware Aurora ALX proves that they know how to create a mid-range system for those who simply want a computer that will get the job done. The price is much more reasonable than we have seen in the past from this high-end brand gaming PC.
