|You Are 31% Vain|
Okay, so you're slightly vain from time to time, but you're not superficial at all.
You are realistic. You know that looks matter. You just try to make them matter less.
Tagged by mitch here and I was actually planning of doing this without being tagged. :) Thanks, mitch!
Some if not most people that know me finds me "maarte". Well, in other aspects but not on my looks. How? These are some of the reasons:
There, who said I am vain? :)
Anyone interested in doing this tag? Go ahead and have fun!
PETER OVERTON: No-one knows how it will end, but we do know how it started — with the mining company's stuff-up. Here's what happened. This time, last year, there were exploring for natural gas just to the right of the plume of steam. Around here were rice paddies and villages — you can see the roof of the local mosque poking up through the mud just over there. Now, when the drilling got to nearly 3km under the earth, it struck a high-pressure zone and the result was catastrophic.People that were affected are trying their best to survive. They make a living out of rescuing some valuable materials from factories and sell them.
DR MARK TINGAY: When they were drilling this well, they have encountered this chamber, or this very large reservoir of a highly pressured water. They have lost control there — that water has started to come up the bore hole and then got into another shallower level, brought up — captured all this mud, eroded all this mud and clay as its come and then erupted to the surface. So about 200 metres away from where they were drilling.
DR MARK TINGAY: Now, what we really fear that might happen is that that could collapse very, very quickly. That all the water and all the soil that has been pulled out of the ground could cause the ground above, the surface, to collapse. Tens of metres — 20, 30 metres down — in a few, just a few seconds, and that would be catastrophic.What a horrendous scene it could be!
This week of pregnancy, your baby is about 20- 20½ inches in length and weighs about 6 pounds. During these last weeks of pregnancy, your baby puts on most of his or her weight and additional fat is being deposited under the skin. Your baby's little knees and elbows are beginning to developing dimples now and also creases are developing around his or her neck area. Your baby is still practicing sucking by sucking on his or her fingers. Your baby is probably resting in a head-down position at this point, but may possibly be in a breech (or head-up) position. Your due date is rapidly approaching and you may feel as if you have run out of room now, since your uterus is up under your ribs. You may find that your weight is beginning to stabilize at this point or even that you have lost a pound or two. Some women still continue to gain about one pound per week, since every woman is different. You may begin seeing your doctor or midwife every week from now until delivery. Packing your hospital bag wouldn’t be a bad idea, if you haven’t done so already.
If this is your first baby he or she may move down into your pelvis, or the "engaged" position, around now. This is called "lightening" or "dropping". You may notice yourself when this happens because it will suddenly become much easier for you to breathe, but on the other hand, it may make your bathroom visits even more frequent.

Blogging Marketplace Secures $7 Million Series B
Draper Fisher Jurvetson leads round and joins Board of Directors
ORLANDO, FL – (June 12, 2007) – PayPerPost, the leading marketplace for advertisers to reach bloggers and other consumer content creators, today announced it has completed a $7 million second round investment led by Draper Fisher Jurvetson, an investor in the company's Series A and one of the world’s leading high-technology venture capital firms. The financing brings the total amount of capital raised by PayPerPost to over $10 million, giving the company considerable resources for further development as the industry’s leading Consumer Generated Advertising marketplace. Additional participants in the round include existing investors Inflexion Partners and Village Ventures as well as new investor DFJ Gotham. With this investment, DFJ Managing Director Josh Stein also joins PayPerPost’s Board of Directors.
“PayPerPost created this exciting new advertising space and has established itself as the industry leader,” said Ted Murphy, chief executive officer of PayPerPost. “Although we’ve only used a portion of our first round capital, this added support from investors unlocks significant growth potential. Our content creator and advertiser ROI metrics clearly demonstrate the upside for PayPerPost’s model. We intend to use this capital to build the infrastructure, visibility and professional expertise necessary to reach and retain a greater network of advertisers and content creators than ever before.”
Since its founding in June of 2006, PayPerPost has signed more than 6,500 advertisers to its groundbreaking service, which has enabled Consumer Content Creators to be compensated for their efforts discussing specific companies, products or services via blogs, videos or other media. The content creators are required to disclose relationships with advertisers on their blog, providing transparency for the end reader. Over 125,000 Internet postings, most in the form of blogs, have already earned money for their creators through PayPerPost’s innovative marketplace. PayPerPost recently released PayPerPost Direct, a disruptive new service that allows advertisers to contract and negotiate directly with individual bloggers they identify through a safe, managed system.
“PayPerPost has laid a strong foundation for the future,” noted Tim Draper, founder and managing director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson. “It continues to attract a critical mass of participants from both the advertising and blogging communities. Analogous to Overture’s sponsored search model, we believe PayPerPost’s business model holds disruptive potential and will enable the company to thrive in the evolving paid-content arena.”
To mark the $7 million dollar funding, PayPerPost has launched a new website detailing the company’s service offering at http://www.payperpost.com. Bloggers and advertisers can easily sign up at the site and begin leveraging the self service marketplace.
