lip up fatty
it would seem that fhm magazine is looking for people to participate in their weight loss challenge. i'm actually considering applying, mostly because i'd get a one year free gym membership out of the deal but also because i may be able to actually drop some weight. from the forwarded email:Once again FHM is looking for overweight men who want help shedding the lbs. As part of our annual weight-loss competition cosponsored by Bally Total Fitness, we'll be giving a group of guys a one-year free gym membership, personalized dieting tips and unlimited time with a personal trainer. Participants will have their lard-shedding efforts chronicled in FHM. Several of the gentlemen who participated in last year's contest were able to shed 30 pounds over the course of six weeks. And last years winner took home $5,000 for his efforts (this year's prize has yet to be determined). We're looking fora wide range of body types, from the massively overweight to the merely love-handled, so please ...

Rap Gets a New Kind of Wrap
A new line of condoms are using hip hop lingo and images to attract teens. Common Ground USA is launching a marketing campaign to promote Jimmie Hatz -- the name's based on a hip hop slang word for condoms -- that includes targeting what they calls the "hip-hop kulture," which is defined as "any group of people -- regardless of race -- that enjoys emceeing, deejaying, breakdancing or 'just loves music.'

Summing It Up Continuing Education for 2003
If "an unexamined life is not worth living," then a summing up of training opportunities is imperative to the life of an education coordinator. To sum up, this was a watermark year for Continuing Education at the Utah State Library Division. Five hundred twenty five librarians and library trustees participated in thirty-three training events during 2003. These training sessions motivated and gave direction to librarians. After Norma Procarione, Director, Price City Library, attended Using Libris Design to Create Your Library Building Program, she wrote a first draft of a building plan for the combined Price Library (Price City partnering with Carbon County and the College of Eastern Utah). more

Data doesn't need self-awareness
In an article from 2002, David Weinberger worries that incompatible metadata formats might stop the semantic web in its tracks: So, even if we agree that we want to tag pages with, say, the last name of the people who created them, is the attribute labeled "lastname", "last_name", "name_last", "surname" or "nom_dernier"? (...) How much effort would it take to rewire your application so it understands multiple namespaces built for a similiar task? It's a triviality to implement. If we ever got a considerable number of people to annotate their content with metadata, compatibility would be the least of our problems. We are, in effect, back in the AI game of attempting to classify all knowledge. See Cyc. See Cyc not run. That's because the purpose of the Cyc project is to not only map, but understand all knowledge. The ambition of the (lowercase "s") semantic web is much more humble than that. It's basically about remixing slices of the data that are out there in interesting and useful ...

I want to scream, but I have no mouth
Perhaps I should just hibernate.I've been straining to think of something to write here for three days, but nada. There just hasn't been anything of note going on.If you ever want a taste of what post-nuclear, apocalyptic despair will look like--try early January in Ohio. It's 8 degrees outside (wind chill is -15) and you rarely see other people out and about. In other words, nothing is happening. Its a weird time of year for culture, too--no new books come out, no new music, no live performances. Normal life just kind of stops for a few weeks. Everyone is in an after-the-holidays funk. Including me.Go find your hilarities and mindless entertainment elsewhere.

Software Construction - Goals for '04
I've seen many a New Years resolution blogged over the past week: promises, hopes, dreams and even pure speculation; so, I thought that I might lay down my own vision for the year. I'm hoping that this year I will take a giant step forward to mastering 2 important areas of Software Construction: estimating and delivery. To that end, this year I'll be focussing nearly all of my blogging efforts (from this blog at least) on the following items. I'll be re-arranging my categories to reflect these items and, I'll also be creating a new category called "Golden Rules"; my hope is that, by years end, I'll have 7 items in the Golden Rules category derived from all of the entries that focus on the topics listed below: GOALS THIS YEAR: improve estimations improve delivery on time on budget on spec (features) reduce lines of code increase re-use reduce re-work introduce new techniques, practices improve developer satisfaction Re-read Code Complete Decide (finally) for myself whether automated ...

Azureus And Sun's Big Mistake.
...It's a common theory that the reason that Apple isn't where Microsoft is today is because of their refusal to license the MacOS during the mid 80s....Sun's refusal to embrace native client side widgets is what allowed Microsoft to catch up to where Java is now with .Net....via [Russell Beattie Notebook] I think Russell's right. The most striking thing to me when I jumped from Java to .NET was how absolutely foolish I felt for having abandoned native OS widgets and integration. One of my most memorable dot-com experiences was bringing on a contract programmer at $150 / hour to implement a single custom widget in Swing and having him fail to do it in four weeks. Even though it was complex, I'd estimate I could duplicate it in 3-5 days with .NET.

Deciphering Misleading Food Labels
The Food and Drug Administration recently announced a major change in its 10 year old nutrition label. Starting in 2006, food manufacturers will be required to reveal how much trans fat is contained in their products. But as Dr. Dean Edell reports, food labels can contain other dietary pitfalls.
