For all my myLot friends - I would like to share some advice that some of my friends on myLot told me about. I thought I'd share it with you, since it can really multiply your earnings on myLot. I have been informed that, when you post/reply to discussions, if you write at least six lines, you will be paid a higher amount for that, than if you were to just write one or two lines. If you can keep your sentences short, then six lines is not a lot ! So friends, try to keep this advice in mind for your future discussions and the money start to add up quicker than it was before.

    Imagine a clear glass bottle. 
    Imagine a miniature wooden ship inside it.
    Imagine it floating on water. 
    Imagine the sails full of air.
    Imagine it barreling towards some safe harbor as dark clouds sweep the horizon and a miniature pirate hollers something. 


    Squinting hard, the woman swore that there was something there yet just couldn’t reach it no matter how hard she tried. Prying open the cork, a loud sound was heard as it flew across the room. “You are a bunch of arses taunting me. I’ll fix ya as soon as I reach ya”. One glass after another of the golden precious liquid was poured into the glass. Putting the empty bottle to her ear, the woman swore that she could hear loud laughter and coarse jokes aimed at her. Looking at the now empty bottle and the last glass of champagne with a tinge of regret, she thought she saw a pirate ship inside the bottle where the crew was going crazy. Pouring the fluid back, she shook the bottle, poured it all back and took a quick gulp munching whatever came along the way. “Gawd. That tasted awful. Do these filthy chaps ever take a bath.” She muttered as she tottered to the sink on another binge and purge session.

      The National Obsession.

        Let's talk about sport. Just like anything else in life, a sporting activity can draw our attention, mesmerize us leading us to become addicted by it. Sometimes it's only a section of society that follows a certain sport and at other times it's the whole nation. One sport which has drawn my attention recently is cricket. These days cricket teams from different nations are participating in a sporting event called World Cup and the winner gets the recognition as the best team. Each team has its own fan following. At times, teams shoulders grow heavy with the hope and expectations of their fans especially the ones that reach semifinals or the finals.
        It is one sport which I never liked watching nor wanted to participate in. I still have a hard time understanding peoples obsession with this sport. Then there is the usual rivalry in this sport like in any other sport. We've got the India vs Pakistan cricket match coming up. The media has been hyping it up for the last few days in a similar manner as the Superbowl. Alot of ads have been sold. Tons of money is expected to be made even though it's not the final game. Employees are expected to make excuses for missing work, being absent from their desk/cubicle or going slow on work. A newspaper is complaining that school test days are clashing with this game (reporter probably has misplaced priorities).
        It's really sad when one sport becomes a national obsession while other sports where athletes are doing well due to their own efforts are not given more funding through private contributions or through a sports body nor provided enough coverage by the media. At least, the money that the winner and runner ups get should be increased in sport so that more folks participate in the hopes of getting a huge sum if they win. Many different sports can occupy the limelight at the same time and folks excel in different sports. Therefore, options should be available from which a person can choose which one is suited for him/her.

          Harnessing our natural resources

            At the moment, majority of the world uses petroleum products with very little emphasis put on renewable energy sources like solar, wind power, hydro, thermal energy or harnessing the oceans tidal energy.Most of the power plants use coal, petroleum based products or a combination of coal and gas based to generate electricity which is distributed to consumer via the main power grid.

            Not enough emphasis is placed on environmental friendly energy farms. Most vehicles at the moment use either petrol, diesel or natural gas to power itself. Commercial buildings and homes usually use electricity (taken from the main power grid)to power the home appliances/office machinery, gas based water heaters to heat the water and either an electric or gas cooking range to cook food. What if these fossil fuels run out sooner than later? What if our nations lose access to the fuels because of blackmail tactics, or some natural calamity? What if we are deprived of these energy sources before we have a viable energy plan is ready?

            I believe we are totally unprepared to handle any energy crisis in the short or long term. Some nations draw petroleum products from their own oil wells/gas fields or mine coal from areas rich in these things. Yet, it's not enough to power the whole nation. Therefore, we are purchasing large quantities of energy products from the middle east.These oil producing countries are earning billions of dollars each year without plowing any portion of the profits for discovering newer and cleaner/less polluting technologies.

            At times petroleum prices are raised without rhyme or reason. High prices encourages folks to save energy by using less energy at home, car pooling, using public transport or even cycling to work to save a few bucks. Low prices causes the opposite reaction. Maybe the oil producing nations feel threatened by our efforts on renewable energy efforts or not spending enough on fossil fuels thereby suddenly lowering prices causing some environmentally friendly companies to became unviable. It's still not too late for nations to plan out an alternate energy backup plan. Enhancing the capacity of wind, solar, hydro power, geothermal and tidal based power plants by investing more money in these areas will go a long way in giving us a brighter and cleaner future.

              Return Of The Muffler Man

                (Photo Taken From The Net)

                It's the return of the mufflerman. The election results have been declared and the public has declared Arvind Kejriwal as Delhi chief minister once more. His last stint lasted only 49 days when he adruptly quit the office on 14-Feb-2014 as his party was unable to pass the proposed anti-corruption legislation due to a lack of support from other political parties.

                The party logo is the broom, and he is promising a clean govt. Will he be able to fulfill all lf his promises to the masses or will some/ most of them be swept under the carpet in the same sense as debris gets swept out of sight? Will he stay in the office for the full 5 year term or will he quit again when he encounters some new problem? Only time will tell.
