Laws exist to prevent anarchy. Without laws, people have an innate desire to do whatever they want, when they want. And sometimes, the social media sphere can seem like total anarchy. To help you avoid chaotic interactions with your customers (and to maintain a civilized social media strategy), we’ve created this visual social sharing legislation- laws that will regulate, promote and enhance your B2B social media marketing endeavors
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.
In a society that idolizes the pursuit of happiness, carrying out a life where one’s destination is to find joy through material goods is not only ineffective, but it’s a never-ending journey.
Experiences bring us happiness not just when we’re having the experience, but also when we simply think about them.

The leader of the Right Sector movement, Dmytro Yarosh, intends to run for president. The movement will become a party, Andriy Tarasenko, the chairperson of the Kyiv organization Right Sector, told Interfax - Ukraine.
"We are preparing for a congress, where the party will be renamed, and we go to the elections in Kyiv: in all local councils, towns and villages, which means that Dmytro Yarosh will run for president of Ukraine," he said.
He explained that Right Sector decided to resort to politics because they have no intention to fight with those politicians who stood with them on Maidan.
"People who are currently in power were standing next to us at the barricades, thus, it does not make sense to fight against them with revolutionary methods," said Tarasenko.
However, Right Sector realizes that, "no power restart has occurred, there was only a change of names of government offices.”
According to Tarasenko, the congress in which Right Sector will decide on the establishment of the party, will be held on March 15.

In the future we plan to cover the entire history of art — from cave artworks to the new talents of today.
The project is non-profit.

« Public discussion on Ukraine is all about confrontation. But do we know where we are going? In my life, I have seen four wars begun with great enthusiasm and public support, all of which we did not know how to end and from three of which we withdrew unilaterally. The test of policy is how it ends, not how it begins.
Far too often the Ukrainian issue is posed as a showdown: whether Ukraine joins the East or the West. But if Ukraine is to survive and thrive, it must not be either side’s outpost against the other — it should function as a bridge between them.
Russia must accept that to try to force Ukraine into a satellite status, and thereby move Russia’s borders again, would doom Moscow to repeat its history of self-fulfilling cycles of reciprocal pressures with Europe and the United States.
The West must understand that, to Russia, Ukraine can never be just a foreign country. Russian history began in what was called Kievan-Rus. The Russian religion spread from there. Ukraine has been part of Russia for centuries, and their histories were intertwined before then. Some of the most important battles for Russian freedom, starting with the Battle of Poltava in 1709, were fought on Ukrainian soil. The Black Sea Fleet —
Russia’s means of projecting power in the Mediterranean — is based by long-term lease in Sevastopol, in Crimea. Even such famed dissidents as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Joseph Brodsky insisted that Ukraine was an integral part of Russian history and, indeed, of Russia.
The European Union must recognize that its bureaucratic dilatoriness and subordination of the strategic element to domestic politics in negotiating Ukraine’s relationship to Europe contributed to turning a negotiation into a crisis. Foreign policy is the art of establishing priorities. »

Back in the latter half of 2012, when I first heard about the new lock screen widget feature in Android 4.2 in an internal email (I work on Android at Google), I immediately started hacking together custom clocks for my lock screen. Some were basic typographic variations, while others were custom-drawn analog clocks. The real “aha” moment though was when I realized there was enough space for the current temperature and weather icon—that added a ton of value for me, as I didn’t have to specially open Google Now in the morning to see if I should bring an umbrella.

International Women's Day is an occasion to take stock of progress made towards achieving gender equality and women's empowerment. Although progress has been made, we are still a long way from achieving gender equality worldwide. There is no single country in the world where women have achieved full equality and full enjoyment of their rights. This alone should emphasise the need to keep a strong focus on gender equality and women's rights in the post-2015 development agenda. Women have a vital contribution to make to the achievement of peaceful and sustainable societies. We need to ensure that they participate fully and enjoy equal rights in all domains.
The big news, in our age, is that we are all hyper-aware of what is going on everywhere, all the time. That is a radical change to the way we live our lives. So big, in fact, that no one has had the chance to really process the results of the shift.

All the self-righteous huffing and puffing in Washington over Ukraine jars on European and especially Russian ears after the multiple U.S.-led invasions and interventions in other people's countries of recent years. It's difficult to say what is more astonishing: the double standards exhibited by the White House, or the apparent total lack of self-awareness of U.S. officials.
More than 99% of the World Wide Web is hidden beneath the surface as the Deep Web.
When you surf the Web, you really are just floating at the surface. Dive below and there are tens of trillions of pages -- an unfathomable number -- that most people have never seen. They include everything from boring statistics to human body parts for sale (illegally).
Google and others also don't capture pages behind private networks or standalone pages that connect to nothing at all. These are all part of the Deep Web.
Here's what's actually there.☛ http://money.cnn.com/2014/03/10/technology/deep-web/index.html

March is my iPhoneiversary. After using an Android smartphone for my entire adult life, I made an impulse decision to upgrade to an iPhone 5 last spring.
Even a year in, I’m still kind of afraid of my iPhone. I handle it more like a fragile baby bird, forever nestled in an enormous OtterBox case that literally doubles its size.
My iPhone screen looks exactly like everyone else's iPhone screen—a grid of colorful little squares. I've moved the squares I use the most to my main screen, but other than that there's not much I can do to adjust it.

“Carpets of the East in Paintings from the West,” which opens Tuesday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a small show drawn from the museum’s collection that delves into the pictorial effects of the European taste for Islamic carpets, which dates from the 14th century. These textiles became staples of artists’ studios, initially in religious paintings, especially to spruce up settings for Madonna and child images. One kind of boldly bordered rug appeared so often in the 16th-century paintings of Lorenzo Lotto that it came to be known as the Lotto pattern.

Seriously, Providence, you guys have your book nerd game in serious check. First you give us a calendar filled with your great looking librarians, now you’re hosting “Dear Diorama,” shoebox book report contest for adults, which leads us to believe that your town is becoming the bookish paradise we’d really consider moving to.
In a rather intriguing twist, it appears that NASA is now mandated by law to fly a robotic mission to Jupiter's watery moon Europa. Europa is an incredibly exciting science target, as it's believed to have a 100-kilometer-thick (62 miles) outer layer of water, with water ice on top (it's very cold out there) and a liquid water ocean beneath that. As we continue to learn more about the tenacious lifeforms found in deep, cold waters here on Earth, excitement grows over the possibility of Europa's oceans harboring extraterrestrial life.

We're one of the first generations to have to deal with the torrent of information about things very far removed from our own lives. For most of history, it was extremely difficult to come by information about what was happening anywhere else. And you probably didn't mind. What difference would it make, if you were a crofter in the Hebrides, northern Scotland, to learn that a power struggle was brewing in the Ottoman Empire?
