International Holocaust Remembrance Day - 01/27/09 03:25 PM
January 27 was recognized in 2005 by the United Nations General Assembly as the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The U.N. resolution rejects Holocaust denials while pledging to fight discrimination. Today in history marks the liberation by allied forces of the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz-Berkenau. It is estimated that the Nazis murdered 6 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witness, and other innocent civilians from all over Europe. Through the works of courageous survivors and victims of the Nazi death camps the world knows the ugly face of such atrocities. It is hard to forget the force of the Diary of Anne (13 comments)
Busy? You Betcha! - 01/26/09 02:44 PM
I wanted to write this post because I have been a scarce presence on Active Rain since late December. It is important to let the followers and occasional readers of my Active Rain blog know that I am not gone nor am I leaving Active Rain. I am happy to say that I have been extremely busy in both my personal and professional life; and yes this is a very good thing. First the personal, I was in Hawaii for a little over a week for my youngest brother, David's wedding. If you have seen my last three Wordless Wednesday posts, (19 comments)
R & D Art: The Classes - 01/19/09 02:40 PM
I am happy to follow up Danny Thornton's post from earlier today entitled Introducing R & D Management with this post that announces some exciting offerings from R & D Art.

The advantages of having your own website and blogsite are numerous. The biggest advantage that I see is that you have ultimate control (6 comments)

Reassess Your Web Presence - 01/15/09 04:22 PM
The transition from one year to the next seems to give a clean slate with hope for a year improved over the previous year. What will you do with that clean slate? Now that the New Year is here, how about developing a new strategy to help increase your production (or at least maintain it)? I really believe that in the age of instant information at your fingertips that you must have a solid internet presence. I do understand that not everyone is familiar and comfortable with the internet and all of its nuances. With that said, it is important to (4 comments)
Time plays an important role in our lives. In the following post by Danny Thornton, the use of time, rather than the controlling of time is examined. I think that Danny presents a positive way to view time while setting a great tone for the new year.
Via Danny Thornton (Home America Mortgage, INC.): Time is one of the most creative of human constructs. It has become such an integral part of our lives that it is easy to forget that it is actually a human construct. The integration of time in the very description of our state is unmistakable; (5 comments)
