Firefox 3 Ready For The Spotlight!

For everyone who enjoys spending time on the internet and surfing, this release is a must have. I dont know about most people but I can easily say I hate waiting for web pages to load. Even with high speed internet I have found some pages take quite some time to load and when I am using a Vista PC, resources are scarce at best, but Firefox 3 has helped to improve both those areas.

I just wanted to take some time to help get the word out that Firefox 3 is live and ready for you to use. This browser is slick and speedy and within minutes of starting to use it, I was able to see the difference speed and resource usage wise. I've always been a firefox user and this latest release has all but reminded me why I love firefox. For those who are curious my backup browser is Opera.

This latest release is billed at being more secure, safer and standards compliant along with being faster which I guarantee you it is. Benchmark tests peg this release as being 20 times faster than Internet Explorer. Not bad eh?
To download the newest edition of Firefox just head on over to Mozilla.

If you are interested in helping to set the world record then use the page that firefox had specifically set up. World Record which at the writing of this article has downloads hovering well over 16 million! This page even breaks down the downloads into a graphical map showing various countries and regions.

So far after using this browser for a few days I can say I am thoroughly impressed and it will take a massive improvement in internet explorer to make me want to switch back. If you havn't used firefox before then why not give it a try, you might be impressed by the speed and stability.

The Incredible Hulk Must Reads

Are you a fan of Marvel Comics? Perhaps you just follow the Incredible Hulk? Or maybe you Follow may or most series. Well then you must know of many of the following comics, graphic novels that feature the green goliath. The following is featured on Marvel Comics Website and for more information on these comics I suggest heading on over there to read up on them.

With June's "The Incredible Hulk" movie right around the corner, now's the perfect time to get caught up on the Green Goliath's comic book adventures. Check out 10 key Hulk collections available now!

A whole new world of hurt! Betrayed by Earth's heroes and exiled into outer space, the man-monster Hulk has landed on the distant planet Sakaar, ruled by the tyrannical Red King. Sold into slavery, Hulk becomes the Green Scar, the planet's mightiest gladiator—but his new masters get more than they bargained for when he forges a bond of brotherhood with his fellow fighters: crafty insectoid Miek, the horrific Brood, wise rock-man Korg, shadow warrior Hiroim, noble-born rebel Elloe and her loyal guardsman Skee. Together, these gladiators start a revolution that could change their entire world—or destroy it. It's savage sci-fi fantasy by award-winning writer Greg Pak, guest-starring the Silver Surfer!

An epic story of anger unbound! Exiled by a group of Marvel "heroes" to the savage alien planet of Sakaar, the Hulk raged, bled and conquered through the pages of last year's "Planet Hulk" epic, rising from slave to gladiator to king. Now the Hulk returns to Earth to wreak his terrible vengeance on Iron Man, Reed Richards, Dr. Strange and Black Bolt—and anyone else who gets in the way. Stronger than ever, accompanied by his monstrous Warbound gladiator allies, and possessed by the fiercest and purest rage imaginable, the Hulk may just tear this stupid planet in half.

Chronicling the final days of the Green Goliath! Peter David and Dale Keown, creative team on some of the Hulk's most memorable tales, reunite to produce this searing vision of the future in which Bruce Banner, the Incredible Hulk, is the last man on Earth. It's the Hulk's final battle, as "The Last Titan" wrestles his inner-demons in order to discover his place in a dying world—if only he can survive! Plus: The testing of the first Gamma Bomb thrust upon Robert Bruce Banner led to what he would come to believe would be his greatest nightmare: his unwilling transformation into the Incredible Hulk. He believed wrong. Now, having been dragged into the future—into a post-holocaust, dystopian world—Bruce Banner discovers that his nightmare has a whole new name: the Maestro. This is a nightmare that only Hulk can end; for he knows that he himself is responsible for the presence of the evil Maestro. The future, our future, and the Incredible Hulk will never quite be the same. And neither will you.

Peter David returns. Hulk smash! Stalking across the depths of the ocean, dispatching everything from sharks to giant squids, comes the Hulk. As a long-buried episode from Bruce Banner's youth begins to surface with possible ramifications for the future, the Hulk finds himself washed up on a strange island, populated by several hapless victims...and some most unexpected monsters.

When the Hulk came back from the Crossroads, John Byrne was waiting for him—complementing his popular X-Men and FF runs by literally breaking the Green Goliath in two! After the Hulk and Bruce Banner are separated, the Jade Giant becomes the Earth's emerald enemy—outfighting Iron Man, Wonder Man, Sub-Mariner, Hercules and Doc Samson! Could the one to succeed where these powerhouses failed be...Bruce Banner himself?! Plus: the wedding of Bruce Banner and Betty Ross! The new Hulkbusters! And the sinister Scourge!

Peter David's 100-plus-issue run on INCREDIBLE HULK remains one of the character's most popular periods. Now, see how it all began in David's first string of Hulk stories as the gray-skinned goliath—or is that the sardonic strongman?—leaps into action against horrors from the grave, the stars and the house next door! Featuring the revitalization of one of the Hulk's longtime foes, the Leader! Guest-starring the original X-Men!

Before WORLD WAR HULK, before PLANET HULK, the Green Goliath spent years fighting the finest the Marvel Universe has to offer! Hulk vs. the Thing! Hulk vs. Thor! Hulk vs. the Silver Surfer, Wolverine and more! Whether facing a tag-team match from the Fantastic Four and the Avengers or going one-and-one against Spider-Man and Daredevil, the Incredible Hulk's the strongest one there is no matter who his opponents are! Also featuring the X-Men, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Fin Fang Foom!

It's the Ultimate war between the Hulk and Iron Man! Desperate for a cure to his dark disease, scientist Bruce Banner begs Tony Stark for a release from the curse of the Hulk! Stark agrees, but in the midst of the experimentation, something goes horribly wrong. And you know what happens next: man and monster collide! Be there as writer Warren Ellis (ULTIMATE GALACTUS) begins his next Ultimate epic—joined by amazing artist Cary Nord (Conan)!

The Green Goliath smashes his way into his own Marvel Adventures title! See how brilliant scientist Bruce Banner was cursed to transform into the rampaging Hulk! Learn why Banner's girlfriend Betty Ross left him, why her father, General "Thunderbolt" Ross, hunts him and why Rick Jones blames himself for creating the monster. Most of all, thrill to the Hulk smashing everything in sight!

Dr. Robert Bruce Banner may have the appearance of a mild-mannered scientist, but after being caught in a gamma bomb explosion, he became the unstoppable engine of destruction know as the Incredible Hulk! Marvel is proud to present the tales of everyone's favorite man-monster from the very beginning: From the earliest Stan Lee and Jack Kirby issues that put an irradiated angle on the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde complex to the Steve Ditko's psychological slobbernockers in TALES TO ASTONISH and the Jade Giant's return to his solo series, this Hulk-sized collection is the foundation for every purple-pants'd adventure ever! Featuring artwork by a who's who of Marvel Age luminaries and scripts by Stan "The Man" Lee, they'll introduce you to General Thunderbolt Ross; the tortured woman who loves both the man and the monster, Betty Ross; the Leader; the Abomination; and a series of earth-shaking fights between the Hulk and the Silver Surfer, Thor, Giant-Man, Namor, Hercules and more! Collecting the first adventures of the Jade Giant in one painstakingly restored volume with every page, every pinup and every letters column. Not to mention unused covers, critical essays and bonuses galore!

Hollywood Celebrities and Pop Culture - The Rape of the Mind


Fame, fortune, and power stand at the top of the heap when it comes to what we call success. Most peculiar of these is fame. It seems the rule, which is rarely spoken out loud is, anyone who is very well known didn�t get that way because they did everything wrong. Oh really! Who hasn�t heard the names of some famous criminals like John Dillinger or Al Capone or John Wayne Gacy? Many of these criminals were even trusted and held hero status in the minds of some people.

Actors after all only portray the very worst human behavior so they are held above any level of culpability. Ignoring the power of suggestion and the force of example they are generally held guiltless. That thousands of youth, weak minded individuals and those with a penchant for criminal activity may be directly influenced by actors is not supposed to be addressed. How easy it is to portray those who decry this evil influence as extremist, right wing extremist, bible thumpers, self righteous or a few other appellations I can�t mention here. Does fame change the standards of morality, sadly for many Americans the answer is, yes?

Faith in God is among other things a call to get rid of the influence laid upon us by the rich, powerful or famous. It is addressed many times throughout the Bible with admonitions like this one. �Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise and pervert the words of the righteous.� Deuteronomy 16:19 For those deeply influenced by celebrities, it requires a lot less than a gift but only a glimpse or a word from their favorite star can get them onboard some perverted or twisted secular view or cause in the proverbial New York minute. This is the rape of the mind. These minds are not weak minds but according to the Bible they are blind minds and are easy prey. 2 Corinthians 4:14

In his brazen and irreverent style as a political humorist Bill Maher has caught the attention of millions of American minds. That these minds were largely suspended in mid air by absolutely nothing made them easy prey. His show �Politically Incorrect� which ended in 2002 won several Emmy awards during its run. In the summer of 2006 Mr. Maher appeared on the Jay Leno show and in his usual pompous style espoused a good bit of his liberal hype to the enthusiastic applause of the audience. The most excited applause was elicited from the audience when Mr. Maher decried the resistance to stem cell research that Maher attributes largely to the Bush administrations policies.

He raised the audience to the heights when he said that what stifle the good efforts of stem cell researchers are men like George Bush who have decided all on their own when exactly life begins. He inferred that it was Mr. Bush�s religious persuasions that have brought him to resist the great high priests of the secular world, the scientists. To the average couch potato trying to relax in his own home this may have gone unnoticed but perhaps a few good folks may have wondered how Mr. Maher decided when life does or does not begin. Why should his view of it be any more valid than the presidents?

If the beginning of life takes place at some unknown point after conception that is arbitrarily determined by just anyone then how easy it would be to make a mistake. Those that say it�s after the first trimester could be wrong by a month, a day or even a minute. What reasonable person would like to take a chance on that deadly error? Do the math, those that say life begins at conception could be dead wrong but that would still leave no one dead. The proponents of abortion have no such assuring outcome to their beliefs.

According to Mr. Maher and others who aren�t so sure when life begins, the Chinese who are attributed for stating the following proverb must be wholly incorrect. �The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.� I suppose if we�re really to know if the proverb is true or not we could just start traveling to Hollywood from wherever we are. When we get there we could knock on the door of some celebrity and ask them if our trip started on the first mile of the journey or at some other point along the way. Oh, by no means takeoff for Washington D.C. because we already know what that dumb old president is going to say. He is going to tell us our journey began with the first step and with the first mile. Who could trust that nonsense?

The priests of ancient Baalism offered children as sacrifice to appease their gods. The Bible says these gods were actually no more than demons. Is the offering of our unborn to the priests of science and secularism all that much different? Has the end justifying the means now become an acceptable substitute for doing what is natural, right and obviously moral and humane? Humane? What would the animal rights activist do if they got wind of a group of veterinarians who were pulling out whole litters of puppies from their mothers bodies for some experiment? How many animal hospitals would get picketed, burned or worse?

Mr. Maher and his enthusiastic audience may not be as sure as Mr. Bush about when human life begins but there is one place they may want to visit to help them in their decision. Instead of the Hollywood tour of celebrity stars maybe they should travel to Wichita Kansas to see the building that Operation Blessing recently purchased. The building was formerly used by Central Women�s Services as an abortion clinic. On August 7th of 2006 it was reported by several news agencies that the people of operation Blessing sprayed the walls ceilings and floors of the building with a substance known as luminol. They took both still photos and videos of the inside of the former clinic that would curdle the blood of anyone regardless of how heartless or hardened they may be. The room glowed like something out of the worst horror movie of the decade. From the floors, walls and even the ceilings an eerie glow of death filled the room and one photographer grew so sick they had to flee the room before fainting.

Visiting this former clinic may not answer the question of when life begins but it would go a long way to show how and in what manner life ends. After that, the first question may be given a great deal more attention and thought. For most of us with an average measure of common sense we don�t need the Bible, the President or Hollywood celebrities to tell us that most things begin�at the beginning.
