Belief Engine (Skeptical Inquirer May 1995): “Despite high confidence on the part of both believers and disbelievers, in most instances, neither side has much — if any — objective evidence to back its position. Some of these beliefs, such as telepathy and astrology, stand in contradiction to the current scientific worldview and are therefore considered by many scientists to be ‘irrational.’ Others are not at all inconsistent with science, and whether or not they are based in fact, no one would consider them to be irrational. “

By The Numbers: “Does your company rely more on traditional classroom-style learning or e-learning via the desktop? Either way you answer, the likely common denominator of that training is rich-media content in all of its digitally expressive forms. And therein lies the challenge for media managers and producers.

Search engine traffic is an altogether different beast compared to traditional marketing, and if done correctly will improve your ROI (return on investment).

We are a family of two adults and three children who have been officially Home Educating for two years. Officially because that is when we removed our eldest child from school. In theory we have been home educating since he was born! The whole point of Home Education is that it is an organic process that doesn’t suddenly stop at home just because your child reaches ‘school age’.
Numerous html/php/asp coding exists relating to the sound engineering-based phenomena which have come to my attention recently, and doubtless many which haven’t. Since I don’t know of any definitive list, I shall attempt to create one, that is far from inclusive.
