Wikileaks passes 1,000,000 followers

Just an update of a post that I made 3 minutes ago. I was wrong with my prediction! I thought it would take a day before wikileaks can surpass the 1,000,000 twitter followers but with the tweet a while ago, Wikileaks already had 1,000,216 followers. So fast!

I think I already followed Wikileaks in twitter for about a month now but I'm not following of its tweets. But as of this time, as i checked their twitter account, this account can be a good source of intriguing issues about high profile organization.

From now on, I will track all the tweets of Wikileaks so that I could also catch any leak that they are going to share.

wikileaks to hit 1M Twitter followers - Will you follow @wikileaks?

It's really close to million! @wikileaks as of this post has 999,713 Twitter followers. Is this the twitter account of a website who infiltrated and exposed some of the top secrets of government agencies and big websites? I'm not really a fan of wikileaks but with the latest tweet, I became curious whether or not this is the original wikileaks.

The 411 on Cat Repellents

If you’ve got unwanted cat visitors, you’re putting your kids or pets at risk. Feral cats can easily lash out at playful kids or spread nasty diseases to your pets. Cat repellents can keep feral cats from entering your yard.
Not only are feral cats dangerous, they are also destructive. They’ll dig up your garden, using it as their own personal litter box. They’ll go after the birds at your birdfeeder. And they’ll rummage through your trash in search of food, leaving behind a mess for you to clean up.

Ethernet Fiber Media Converter

As more and more networks are upgrading to fiber optic internet services, a unique kind of dilemma is emerging.

Where the heck do you hook up the fiber optics? After all, to get true fiber optic resolution and fidelity, it should “plug in” directly, not have to be channeled through several connections and devices. However, this is what happens.

Often users will have both an Ethernet internet connection as well as a newly installed fiber optic cable connection, often provided by their cable/phone/internet company as a bundled service. A similar situation happens when a telecom company decides to deliver both internet and voice services through fiber optic cables. The phone can easily convert voice signals with the help of a few devices, but the computer that needs to be connected to the internet needs converters, too. After all, there are no personal computers being shipped right now with fiber optic ports; all we get are Ethernet ports. Thus, the need to convert fiber optic transmiss…

Raccoons are highly crafty creatures. They’ll wreak havoc on your vegetable garden, help themselves to your garbage cans (leaving a mess for you to clean up) or ransack your birdfeeders. If you find your freshly laid sod rolled up, it’s likely due to a raccoon in search of grub worms.

Most destructive during May through September, raccoons are highly adaptable and thrive in both suburban and urban areas. Effective raccoon repellent is essential in preventing destruction.

Read this post to find out what you can do to protect your yard, garden and trashcans from raccoon destruction.

Engineered Hardwood Floors are More Economical, Easier to Install

Engineered hardwood flooring is a hybrid surface that is essentially a sandwiching of finished woods with layers of plywood or high-density underneath. Anywhere from three to seven layers constitute the core layers. The core is cross-layered beneath the wooden surface, which provides a number of advantages over plank hardwood flooring.

The main advantage of engineered hardwood flooring over its simple hardwood counterpart is that it is more resistant to high moisture levels, meaning it is less prone to warping, cupping. It is also better able to adjust to temperature extremes, which cause expansion and contraction. As hardwoods age, they shrink, but engineered hardwoods do not do so. Because of this characteristic, they may be installed in areas such as damp basements, over radiant heat sources and in tropical climates or in buildings such as cottages or summer homes that are not environmentally controlled all year. The actual structure of engineered hardwood flooring actually adds to…

If You Don’t Have an Effective Skunk Repellent Now, You’ll Regret it Later

Skunks are unique animals. Catlike in behavior, they actually come from the mephitidae family and are closely related to ferrets, weasels, otters and badgers.

Skunks aren’t just smelly; they can also be destructive and dangerous. This post will explain why you need an effective skunk repellent to keep these creatures out of your yard.

5 Reasons Every Workplace Should Run an Anger Management Course

Anger is just like stress: everyone experiences it, on some level or another, but not everyone knows how to handle it. Anger can be an unpredictable emotion – and a very powerful one, at that. It is a common cause of road rage accidents, highly-publicized disputes, and violent acts of terrorism. But, what about the anger that we deal with on a daily basis? What about anger at the workplace? Even if workplace anger is less explosive, it is in no way less destructive. It undoubtedly affects not only employee performance, but overall business operations. Here are five reasons every workplace should run an anger management course:

Instilling a Love for Learning by Expanding Their Educational World

Experts in early childhood education are in agreement that the first few years of life are the most crucial in terms of mental, physical and emotional development. Providing a rich, vibrant environment for preschool-aged children is vital to their future success in the academic arena and can ensure that they develop attitudes and habits that will help them achieve more in every aspect of their lives. Preschools and learning centers can provide a great deal of support to parents in this regard; however, bringing the learning experience into the home environment can help instill the idea that education is a lifelong process and not confined to formal education. Online preschool sites can provide a fun, easy-to-use way to get children excited about learning and invested in the educational process.

3 Best Shop Shelving Systems

There is such a huge variety of shop shelves on offer that there is without doubt a solution for everyone. Here are 3 of the best shop shelving systems (and their respective benefits) for all shop owners to consider for use in their stores:

The 45 Seconds That Will Change Your Life

Multilevel marketing has often been viewed as the opportunity of a lifetime. There are several reason as to why people are so fond of the idea of multilevel marketing. Unfortunately, many people have doubts as far as job stability is concerned. The great thing about MLM opportunities is that you can work as much as you want for as long as you want, making all the money you need to support a luxurious, comfortable lifestyle.

There are various programs on the market that provide plenty of information as to why someone should become involved in MLM. The reasons are apparent. First and foremost, you get to spend more time with your family. Most jobs do not allow you to spend more time with your family, but rather, work you to death at an hourly rate. The majority of jobs do not pay people well enough to support their families. What's even more unfortunate is that most jobs do not provide people with the opportunity for growth.

Build Your Credit, Grow Your Business

You may be familiar with some of the struggles that accompany individuals with poor credit. From high interest rates to assuming a role as a high risk to creditors, negative credit ratings can sometimes be crippling, hindering many of the hopes that are associated with the American Dream. Although individuals can be plagued by bad credit, your business can endure similar hardships if credit is not built properly or if poor credit characterizes it.

Because finances are so important to businesses, whether yours is just getting its start or experiencing growth, obtaining a positive credit score and building your business's credit history can be a vital aspect of growing your company as a whole and taking the next leap in your journey. Similarly to an individual, if your business has poor or no credit history, you may have to bite the bullet and obtain higher interest or high fee loans as you work toward improving your financial situation.

iPhone 5 and iPad 3 arriving in October

I prefer to wait the latest of the latest. It's so disgusting that, what you bought today will become obsolete tomorrow. When you buy today the specs are good, but when a new model comes out of the market you realized that your gear wasn't good enough to match up with the new one.

These electronic companies enslaved all people for a profit. There's no ending in buying until we realized that we invest in nothing but a crap. It's a money down the drain.
