wandering these alleys. ran into this guy who wanted his picture taken.
Take a number of the world’s cities and you’ll find, more often than not, a handful of them share similar street names. While the intrigue might stop there, some streets in particular have a more colourful history than others; such as the Frederick Streets of Dunedin, Berlin and Edinburgh where war, immigration and the develop of architecture all play a prominent role.
Frederick Street in Berlin, Germany has a particularly important history. Bisected during the Cold War and the location of Checkpoint Charlie (the crossing between East and West Germany), Frederick Street was also the crossing point for trains between the two divisions. At the Frederick Street station, security was very strict and passengers could not cross between the two platforms without documents and papers. Nowadays, Frederick Street is a popular shopping district and has benefited from significant refurbishment since the war.
Thousands of miles beyond Europe, the Fredrick Street of Dunedin in New Zealand has a very unique history indeed. The seventh largest urban area in New Zealand, Dunedin takes its name from the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh. When European settlers arrived in the mid 1800s, the Free Church of Scotland quickly asserted its presence, followed by designs and architecture that attempted to emulate Scotland’s capital. Sitting proudly in the heart of the city, Frederick Street boasts some of the city’s oldest buildings.
With New Zealand settlers taking inspiration from Scotland, it’s no wonder that Edinburgh still retains its own Frederick Street. Built in the early 1800s, Edinburgh’s Frederick Street was part of the city’s ‘New Town’ development which saw a move away from traditional medieval tenement living towards the opulence of Georgian design. Today, an Edinburgh Fredrick Street Hotel will still play host to some of the city’s much talked about glitterati as well as overseas visitors looking for accommodation that’s a cut above.

Over 40 no longer means over the hill for a growing number of people who have learned to keep their weight down and their energy levels up as they age.
While 40 may no longer be considered “over the hill” as it was in the past, numerous factors must be considered to keep an aging body functioning in a healthy and more youthful manner.
In Fitness at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond, author Michael Spitzer presents a scientifically based program that can transform the body and achieve 30 lbs of fat loss in 16 weeks.
Not just another typical diet book, Spitzer explains the effects of aging on the body and offers a program for fat loss, better muscle tone, greater flexibility and more energy.
Topics covered include: what to eat; how to exercise; which supplements to take; dealing with joint pain, anxiety, depression, sexual function changes, slowing metabolism, flexibility, lung capacity, bone density, heart health, lower back problems, energy levels and much more.
No hype, no wild claims, no false promises.
Citing medical studies and recent scientific research on the aging process, this book “tells it like it is”. The program described produces impressive body changes in just 4 months.
The 432-page book is illustrated with 260 photographs.
Diagrams, tables, and charts are used to explain meal plans, recipes, and other principles. Every exercise is clearly described with accompanying photos that demonstrate both proper and improper technique. At the end of each chapter, summaries are provided that can be copied and carried for quick, easy reference.
Although written to address the specific issues that concern older individuals, the diet and exercise advice provided is useful for people of all ages. In this regard, the book is being considered by many as the “definitive new book for fitness and weight loss”.
Mr. Spitzer is available for interviews regarding the book as well as society’s changing attitude about the fitness potential of older individuals.
Fitness at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond is available today.
The book can be purchased for $ 17.95 from the book’s website: http://www.highpointproducts.com, as well as Amazon, eBay, and most major book retailers.

CPAC use to be a Big Tent event, allowing various groups to discuss their views. But as Edward Hudgins, Atlas Society director of advocacy, explains in his new commentary, banning GOProud is the latest battle in the civil war within the Republican Party and the conservative movement:
*He points out that allowing gays to form marriage contracts does not limit the liberty of heterosexuals to marry who they want and it is in keeping with the Reagan-Goldwater principles of limited government.
*He observes that leftists love the fact that social conservatives are scaring away potential allies with their gay union stance.
*He maintains that social conservatives are on the losing side of history since one state after another are legalizing gay unions.
*He argues that time, money, and political capital are being wasted on this issue by social conservatives at the expanse the larger fight against the expanded government control over every aspect of our lives.

PearHaven, a website for dating ideas and relationship advice, reports on feeling over the hill vs. having an active life. If a partner in a relationship starts to have negative feelings about being old, this attitude can affect the quality of the couple’s relationship. Current scientific research presented by the British Psychological Society, April 12, 2013, “Think you are old and you start to feel frail.” The study was carried out by Krystal Warmoth and colleagues at University of Exeter Medical School.
Ms Warmoth stated: “A person’s beliefs about their self could lead to a loss of interest in participating in social and physical activities, poor health, stigmatisation and reduced quality of life.”
British Psychological Society said the findings in the research suggest ” those who see themselves as being over the hill might give up activities such as physical exercise that would otherwise keep them fit and healthy.”
Couples who maintain a physically active life together may experience more healthy, vibrant years to come. Scientific research from NIH confirms the importance of staying active. National Institutes of Health, November 6, 2012 report, “NIH study finds leisure-time physical activity extends life expectancy as much as 4.5 years.” Even low levels of activity or no matter what the person weighs still extends the life expectancy years.”
PearHaven was developed to inspire and promote couples’ long-term romantic relationships. Striving to help keep couples romantically involved with each other, the website suggests and maps out the best date ideas. The website also offers a fun game-like design called gamification where couples are rewarded achievement badges for their date experiences such as going on dates in different cities or connecting with other couples.
The website fosters strong relationships through the use of technology. PearHaven members share their favorite date ideas, record their memories, post photos and find the best date ideas or relationship advice. PearHaven encourages couples to remember those positive times in a relationship, thus strengthening couples’ relationships.
PearHaven’s free app for the iPhone and iPad offers date ideas on-the-go. Members can also use the app to post their date experiences and photos while they are out and about. PearHaven’s blog features relationship advice, dating ideas and fun trivia.
PearHaven is not a dating site.
It is a social website with free sign-ups for people of all ages who are dating, engaged, in a long-term relationship or married. Members can record their dating experiences, connect with others, post photos and earn achievement badges for trying the latest date ideas. PearHaven.com suggests the best date ideas and maps the locations, using venue data provided by Foursquare. The website was founded by David Lackey, a student at Princeton University. PearHaven has a free iPhone and iPad App at the iTunes App Store to record date ideas and photos on-the-go.

Question by JOE: Brief over view of the illuminati please.?
So in school today the illuminati where mentioned, and I know there brief history, how Galileo founded them, but they weren’t satanic worshipers, and the pentagram and stuff. I just want a brief, educated answer. Please tell me they do not exist, because they do, that’s clear as day. Also maby if possible a little about the free masons, like how George Washington was one. That’s all, thank you.
Answer by Creepis Kryp
I live in Philadelphia not too far from Independence Hall, where the
Declaration was written.
Benjamin Franklin was the big boss of the founding fathers. Many political
decisions hinged on “Old Ben” for his Free Mason seniority.
He held no specific political office.
It was a classic example of Libertines seducing Puritans into forming a nation.
@Emilia, don’t get caught up in the hype of minutia. “Like the 20$ bill, fold it up and its the twin towers burning.”
We can sit around folding money pictures all day, until we get it to look
like anything else. That is inconclusive.
Just because Beiber and Minaj wink for a portrait doesn’t mean anything
more. But there are OTHER reasons to believe in illuminati.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is celebrating the successful culmination of this year’s Light The Night Walk fund raising campaign.
Picture 3,000 walkers headed down Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood carrying lighted balloons quite a sight on a Saturday night. That was the scene during one of four Light the Night Walks held to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, an organization dedicated to wiping out blood cancers. The Walks made up the Greater Los Angeles area effort to collect funds for continuing research into more effective therapies and cures, and for support systems that help patients and their families cope during and after treatment.
Held yearly, similar Light The Night Walks take place in communities all around the country. The L.A. area Walks were an enormous success, bringing in over one and a quarter million dollars to date. Fund raising inspired by the Walks will continue through the end of December.
“We are so heartened by the generosity of all involved. The money collected makes a huge difference for those affected by these diseases and keeps us headed toward our ultimate goal a world without cancer,” said LLS Los Angeles Chapter Campaign Director, Nichole Guzman, standing outside of the Sunset Gower studios along the Hollywood route, high-fiving and cheering on walkers.
The four walks, produced for LLS by Sunday Sol Events, were held in Ventura, Hollywood, Santa Clarita, and Woodland Hills. Roughly 6,500 walkers participated. Light The Night Walk events take place in the evening starting around 5:00. As walkers arrive, they check in and receive T-shirts and balloons, and can participate in a formal Remembrance Ceremony and enjoy other activities such as the Kids Zone, food trucks, a Survivor Tent, banner decorating, vendors, music, and more. Once the sun sets, an Opening Ceremony takes place and the walkers take to the streets. All along the pre-planned route, they are energized by DJs, bands, cheerleaders, and supporters, celebrating their spirit and thanking them for their efforts. Walkers carry illuminated balloons in three colors: red for supporters, white for survivors, and gold to honor the memory of someone lost to cancer.
Blood cancers are insidious and there are literally hundreds of distinct types. They are not caused by any lifestyle choice, are unpreventable, and can strike anyone of any age, any race, male and female alike. In the Light the Night Walk campaign, individuals and corporate sponsors join to contribute money, time, and footsteps to raise awareness and dollars toward the fight.
The events bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers and to the families and friends who support them. In the past six decades, the survival rates for many blood cancers have doubled, tripled, or for some types, quadrupled largely due to continuing research made possible by people like those who participate in Light The Night Walk and other campaigns.
“It’s an honor to work with LLS; the mission of this research-based organization is so impactful. Thanks to LLS, people are living longer lives – despite the serious nature of the cause, we try to bring fun and inspiration to the participants and are rewarded to see the results,” says Michelle French, owner of Sunday Sol Events. The company looks forward to working with LLS again next year in both the Orange County and Greater Los Angeles Chapters.

Question by Source: How can the people gain more control over their lives instead of living a life serving those in “high places”
And if there are any, how come they haven’t been implemented yet?
By the way, this is refering to society as a whole, and not just one individual person or family.
Answer by kyala c
if everyone were all leaders, then this society we all live in will turn to total chaos and anarchy. a leader needs subordinates. subordinates need leader to guide them.

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 24, 2013
Innovative, data-driven apartment search and ratings site Rentenna has over 15,000 apartment buildings rated and 2,500+ available rental listings live in Philadelphia. Originally based in NYC, the rental scoring start-up has gained increasing momentum from its proprietary apartment-scoring algorithm, sleek interface, unique features and thousands of accurate listings.
Over the last year, Rentenna has been covered in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Curbed, Crains New York, tens of real-estate publications and blogs, and was named to AGBeats “60 Genius Brands to Watch” list.
Renters in Philadelphia can now explore city-specific data such as the “Food Delivery Score” which tells renters how many restaurants will deliver to a specific address, “BlockScore” which details Restaurants, Bars and Crime data on a particular block from Rentenna partner, BlockAvenue.com and “School Score” which displays the quality of the public schools in the area. This is in addition to Rentennas amenity and value scores which compares thousands of historical apartment listings.
According to Rentenna the average rental pricing in Philadelphia for a studio is $ 850, one bedroom $ 1275, two bedrooms $ 1675 and three bedroom apartment rentals is $ 2350. The top 5 most expensive neighborhoods, which should come as no surprise to experienced Philadelphia renters, are Logan Square, University City, Rittenhouse Square, Society Hill and Old City. The most searched neighborhoods on Rentenna are Old City, Rittenhouse Square, Northern Liberties, Morrell Park and University City.
“Listed in Businessweek as one of the best cities for new grads and one of my personal favorite cities, Philadelphia is an important city to our demographic,” explains Co-founder Alicia Schwartz. “As a result, we has been working hard on adding inventory and new compelling data points. We are excited for Rentenna to become the new rental staple for Philadelphia renters.”
Rentenna is a groundbreaking interactive apartment search and comparison tool that rates rental buildings on a scale of 1-99, helping apartment seekers quickly and efficiently sort through thousands of options to find their ideal rental.
