Kill Bad Ideas Quick

Some inventors make the mistake of pouring years of their lives and thousands of dollars into bad ideas. Maybe their idea was ill-formed and nobody actually wants it. Maybe they wasted years pursuing an idea that actually will not work the way they originally thought it would. Whatever the case may be, the end result is lots of wasted time and energy on a dead idea. By this point you are probably thinking, “There must be a better way!” Fortunately, there is. It is a bold, decisive strategy that is best summed up as “Kill your ideas quick.” What does this mean, exactly?

Will you be wearing GREEN?

Why St. Patrick’s Day Has Special Significance for the Irish

The holiday of St. Patrick’s Day has certainly grown in popularity in the last 25 years. Indeed, it has become fashionable to be Irish. The Celtic Tiger has replaced Paddy’s Pig as mascot of the little country that went from rags to riches. Is it any wonder that St. Patrick’s Day has become one of the year’s biggest celebrations?

But what is really being celebrated?

St. Patrick’s Day around the world is viewed in a variety of ways. For some, it is an excuse to wear their nationality proudly. Others – Irish or not – go for the comic effect, with green hair and leprechaun ears. For still others, it is simply an excuse to get drunk.

St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland, however, is primarily a religious holiday. It is commonly known as “Patrick’s Day”. While in some of the larger Irish cities there are more and more celebratory parades being held for the tourists, in most of Ireland, the day is spent in quiet tradition.

Clinton, Obama go one-on-one in debate

Last Democratic face-off before Super Tuesday contests

  HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton sought common ground Thursday on basic Democratic policies on immigration, health care and tax relief in their first one-on-one debate, but grew testy at times in trying to distinguish themselves as the candidate best able to assume the presidency.

Just days before the Super Tuesday contests, the two alternated addressing each other cordially with swipes, underscoring the high stakes of the upcoming contests. The debate came on the day when Obama’s campaign reported raising a staggering $32 million in January, cash aplenty to advertise all through the Super Tuesday states, with its nearly two dozen contests from coast to coast, and beyond.

One of their most pointed exchanges came on the subject of whether illegal immigrants should be able to obtain driver’s licenses. Obama supports doing so while Clinton initially supported it and now opposes it. “Senator Clinton gave a number of different answers over the course of six weeks on this,” Obama said, turning to Clinton. “Initially, you said you were for it, then you said you were against it.” He said he was raising her apparent wavering to underscore that it is “a difficult political issue.”

Clinton called the controversy “a diversion” from efforts to come up with comprehensive immigration reform. “I sponsored immigration reform before Barack came to the Senate,” she said.

Obama argued for his candidacy, saying, “I respect Senator Clinton’s record. I think it’s a terrific record. But I also believe that the skills that I have are the ones that are needed right now to move the country forward, otherwise I wouldn’t be running for president.”

The two also reached out quickly to backers of former rival John Edwards, both praising his efforts in their opening statements.

Obama called Edwards “a voice for this party and this country for many years to come.” Clinton saluted both Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, as setting “their personal example of courage and leadership” in their advocacy for the poor.

Moments during the debate when the two candidates praised each other were mixed with pointed jabs.

Obama pressed his theme that he is the candidate of change. Clinton said “having the first woman president would be a huge change.”
