Long backstory here.
While this fanciful cover is largely in jest, they certainly don’t make it easy for you to drop them a line in cyberspace. I never heard back from my Twitter or Tumblr efforts, but their "contact us" form did eventually yield a response—about 26 hours later.
If you need to talk to someone there, an email to author first initial and author last name (no space between) at theatlantic.com was what worked for me.
Oh, and the Blue Moon crack is a reference to this.

Question by MSS: Has anyone heard of Strategic Capital Resources Inc?
Their website: www.stratcresources.com/
I applied for a loan, was approved but based on my horrible credit score, they ask for the first seven months up front. Is that common practice through a private lender? Has anyone heard of this company before?
Answer by AllTheGoodNamesAreAlreadyGone
No I haven’t, but their website is www.strategic-resources.com.
Paying seven months up front is NOT a common practice, and I would not go near that deal. Save some more money for a bigger down payment, and work on your credit score by paying your bills on time and paying down your debt.

How do you run a Windows PC without Windows Explorer? I heard it frees up tons of resources to do this!?
Question by Atheist Mantis: How do you run a Windows PC without Windows Explorer? I heard it frees up tons of resources to do this!?
The “Question” box pretty much spelled it out but I’ll say it again…
A friend called and asked if I knew how to run a PC with Windows XP Pro and/or Windows Vista without having to use Windows Explorer yet you still have full access to any and all program files and registry etc.
I have NO IDEA how to go about doing this…
He said that if you are running Vista, which is a total systems hog, it will dramatically increase your performance by freeing up a very high chunk of your ram and systems resources.
Can you please either tell me (if it is easy) or link me (if it is hard) to how, exactly, you go about doing this to your computer???
Answer by inconclusive_conjunction
You can technically run Windows without Explorer running by default by using an alternate program to provide the Start Menu. Unfortunately, most solutions do not provide a file browser component, so it still launches Explorer when you try to open a folder.
I believe it is possible to run ROSExplorer (the Explorer equivalent for ReactOS) on Windows. It may still be very buggy, though, if it’s performance on ReactOS is any indication.
I believe BB4Win also provides a file browser. Of course, the resulting desktop will look very little like Windows.

This group spent a weekend in May 2008 discussing resources that street involved Aboriginal youth can access to foster healthy lifestyles. This conversation was framed through a process of community building activities, interactive cultural presentations and a hosted discussion on Against the Odds: A profile of marginalized and street involved youth in BC (2007). In 2006, the McCreary Centre Society surveyed 764 street involved and marginalized youth in communities across British Columbia. 54% of youth in the survey were Aboriginal. The findings were published in this report. This discussion about culture, values and health preceded and informed a media literacy segment where the youth created a video related to the theme. Thank you to the Wachiay Friendship Centre in Comox BC

Question by GreasyTony: Are groups like ACLU finally getting heard?
…..and not to mention their million supporters? Do you think this could be the best news Phoenix could get right now?
ICE pulls Arpaio’s arrest authority
Immigration and Customs Enforcement chose not to renew its federal immigration arrest authority agreement with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Friday.
Through pressure from the American Civil Liberties Union and other pro illegal alien advocacy groups ICE has caved. The ACLU is currently representing two clients in separate lawsuits accusing Arpaio’s deputies of racial profiling. “He’s not going to be able to arrest people for those kind of routine civil-immigration violations,” said Alessandra Soler-Meetze executive director of the ACLU in Arizona. (The Arizona Republic). Wrong, the immigration violations that Sheriff Arpaio was using to arrest and detain illegal aliens are not civil, they are administrative violations under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Violating federal immigration laws are not “routine” civil matters. I wish these ACLU attorneys would understand the law before they make comment. ICE does not have the time or the resources to make “routine” arrests like Arpaio’s deputies could. Sheriff Arapio was found guilty of racial profiling in the eyes of public opinion with the help of pro illegal alien advocacy groups. Looks like Phoenix is well on its way to becoming another sanctuary city for illegal aliens thanks in large part to our ACLU.

Question by Dana1981: Have you heard of thin film solar technology?
I think this is very interesting:
“within ten years, solar will undercut coal, natural gas, and nuclear by 50%…The crucial tipping point, says Evans-Prichard, is the $ 1 per watt point: the current price of most non-renewable energy sources. Current solar technology puts the price of solar power at about $ 3 to $ 4 per watt. Anil Sethi of Flisom foresees his thin-film solar panels reaching $ .80/watt in five years, and $ .50/watt within ten.
Thin film solar modules don’t use the costly, and limited, silicon that we are used to. The technology is based on CIGS (copper indium gallium selenide) arranged on a flexible backing, suitable for not only the tops, but also the sides of buildings, tinted windows, cell phones, notebook computers, cars, and even clothing.”
Have you heard of this advancement in solar technology? Sounds very promising.
Answer by 07_Shelby_GT500
I caught something about this on a discovery channel show the other day. To be honest, I was in and out of the room doing things, so I only heard bits and pieces of the segment. Was definitely about thin film solar technology. In fact, I do remember very clearly the number 20 cents per watt mentioned. I’m very good at remembering numbers and figures, so I’m sure that was the price point they mentioned.
Hope the technology is viable and catches on and can be used to increase our ability to use renewable sources of energy.
