After I left the power plant and went to work for Dell on August 20, 2001, I wrote letters back to my friends at the plant letting them know how things were going. This is the twenty fifth letter I wrote. Keep in mind that at the time when I originally penned this letter I didn’t intend on it being posted online.
3/13/02 – Faster at Dell
Dear friends up north,
It was fun dropping by this week and seeing the ol’ power plant. It seems to make my job here just a little more enjoyable. It was good seeing all my old friends (and getting older all the time). You guys are always in my thoughts (as you can tell). I know that was a quick visit, and maybe the next time I will be able to stay a little bit longer.
The sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. It is a nearly perfect sphere of hot plasma, with internal convective motion that generates a magnetic field via a dynamo process. It is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth. Its diameter is about 109 times that of Earth, and its mass is about 330,000 times that of Earth, accounting for about 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System. About three quarters of the Sun’s mass consists of hydrogen (~73%); the rest is mostly helium (~25%), with much smaller quantities of heavier elements, including oxygen, carbon, neon, and iron.
The Sun is a G-type main-sequence star (G2V) based on its spectral class, and is informally referred to as a yellow dwarf. It formed approximately 4.6 billion years ago from the gravitational collapse of…
It was a day; a night of spring chill. So I decided to go for the old Hollywood glamour, faux fur (that’s right) on top of my blue velvet – “velvet is so in right now” – ankle length gown to attend a Spring Soiree with my partner in crime, Street Fashion Sydney’s Kent Johnson.
This Spring Soiree had a beautiful; rosy flower ‘media’ wall for guests to have their pictures taken. The Havana themed Garden Party was happening upstairs at the Cohibar.
Cuban cigar smoking; champagne drinking; wine; cocktails and sweets were generously provided to guests while we mingled and enjoyed the view and the skyline from Darling Harbour.
Although having stopped smoking three years ago, Kent lit up a cigar in his hand and clearly treasured and enjoyed it. (He is still not smoking.) Meanwhile; we happily met and chatted to Sam from Cigar Journal (top right…
We are often encountered with this thought over and over again that what is our value in this life? What is the purpose of our existence? Why are we even living? Are we supposed to live this kind of life? The answers to all this lie within oneself, so here it goes-
From the day when we were born, we marked our existence in this world full of people and with various other babies who were born with us. At that stage we are all supposed to be equal because we are not equipped with the sense of differences that prevails in the life that has been shaped centuries over centuries. When we initially grow up, the value of our existence starts to build up because we have brought the change into the lives of our parents and near ones. We tend to be the first priority of our parents…
In the latest stunning revelation in today’s saga involving the FBI’s second probe, moments ago the NYT reported that the new emails uncovered in the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server were discovered on a computer belonging to Anthony D. Weiner, the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, a top aide to Mrs. Clinton.
In a stunning letter to Congress, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said that emails had surfaced in an unrelated case, and that they “appear to be pertinent to the investigation.” It remained unclear, however, if the emails were sent from Mrs. Clinton’s private server, which has already been thoroughly examined by the F.B.I.
The F.B.I. is investigating illicit text messages that Mr. Weiner sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. The bureau told Congress on Friday that it had uncovered new emails related…
