This issue is devoted entirely to reducing telephone costs.
This tool is a real cost reducer.
It allows you
to plug the magicJack into your PC using a USB port and then you can plug
your telephone wire into the Magic Jack and make unlimited calls for free to
anywhere to the USA or Canada.
So you could be in the USA or anywhere
else in the WORLD and log on to the Internet using Wireless network or any
other Internet connection and then start making telephone calls to land
lines or cell phones in the USA or Canada.
You could also run the
wire out from your magicJack to the line into your home or office and all
the phones would be able to make calls immediately.

By now, everyone should be familiar with Skype
I have tested it and it shows video from a web cam much
faster than Yahoo Messenger and, presumably, other IM sites. No
stuttering of the video frames and great FREE talking over the Internet with
a microphone, either built-in or a plug-in.
This tool is an even better cost reducer.
This device does not require a PC. You simply plug this
into the back or your cable modem or or other Internet router and
them plug your phone line into the TK6000 and immediately make phone
calls to anywhere in the USA or Canada for free. You can also
receive calls from anywhere in the US or Canada since netTalk will
give you a phone number to use so you can be called.
could also run the wire out from your TK6000 to the line into your
home or office and all the phones would be able to make calls

Thunder and Lightning
of sound is roughly 1000 feet per second (300 meters per second) or
sound travels a mile in 5 seconds.
So, if you are on a golf course and you see lightening you can can count
the time from when you see it to when you hear the thunder and know that a 5

On Being Happy
The key to staying happy, in my friend Jerry Fireman's opinion,
is filling up your life with fulfilling and meaningful activities.
These ideas are not really designed to help get you out of a bad
mood but more to be done on a regular basis to keep you in a
positive mood. There's nothing very new here but I am hoping that
they might help in a small way.
1) Fulfilling work � Probably the most important of all because that�s
where you spend most of your time. You should concentrate on doing a great
job rather than letting your mind wander. Your work should bring you
connections with other people, such as part of a team or making a difference
2) Staying close to friends and relatives � Make contact every day with
as many friends and relatives as you have time to. Call them on the phone,
meet them for coffee, send them an email, mail them a greeting card.
3) Good deeds � Do nice things for others on a regular
basis. This should include your friends and relatives, co-workers,
and people you have never seen before and will never see again.
Things that no one will ever know you did are best of all, like
picking up someone else�s litter when no one is around.
4) Exercise � A good workout will make you feel great for at
least four hours so try to plan it just before the times when you
normally feel down. The best exercise is when you raise your heart
rate to 70% of your maximum for 30 minutes or more, so think about
getting a heart rate monitor to measure your effort.
5) Cause � Find something that you can be enthusiastic about that
has nothing to do with your own personal well-being. For example,
work for a political candidate, join an organization dedicated to a
cause, support a charity, or maybe help an older person in your
neighborhood on a regular basis.
6. Spiritual Development -
Spend a reasonaable amount of time being pursuing being "good" and
learning about what others are doing in this area.
Often this involves some kind of religious connection but it
can be independent reading or discussions.

Do Better Internet Research

that helps you do research and is much better than Google or Yahoo.

are also very helpful.
Add VIDEO to Your Presentations
At this point in time, we must add some kind of video to our
presentations. YouTube, HDTV, and virtually every sales
message now has some form of video. Videos can be developed for the
Internet, PowerPoint presentations and In-The-Lobby infinitely
looping shows. When you develop the video you MUST HAVE a
quality sound recording system and not one from the camera, two
cameras so you can switch back and forth, a script, a studio to
shoot it in without outside sounds AND some decent software to edit
and add the sound track to the video.
