Being elected as the newly President of the United States, Obama appoints YouTube as the "Secretary of Video". His Presidential weekly address will be viewed on YouTube from time to time. President Obama's first weekly address already reached 834,991 views from November 14-19. Maybe days from now, there will be a "White House" channel on YouTube exclusively for Obama's Administration.
Upon YouTube's appointment, rumors are buzzing around on why he favors YouTube among the other video-sharing websites. But… whatever the reason behind its back, respect is important. We all have our own choice of decision. And for Obama's Administration, people all look forward for a positive change in all aspects.

If there was ever any doubt that online video is here to stay, look no further than today's announcement that YouTube will now show free full-length movies and TV shows in a deal just reached with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Google, the owner of YouTube, hints that other such deals are to be expected soon.
Expect to see the first movies streaming by January as Google responds to competition from online rivals like Hulu.com, the year-old streaming video service partially owned by NBC, which already streams shows from NBC, Fox and CBS.
The MGM movies on YouTube will be free, with brief commercials interspersed as is done on Hulu. Don't expect the latest. Most will be old films and series from the archives, like 10-year-old episodes of "American Gladiators" and a a handful of golden oldie films, like the "Magnificent Seven," "Legally Blonde" and "Bulletproof Monk."
Still, it's a start and more evidence of how the Internet is now a serious rival to cable, satellite and over-the-air TV

On the other hand, there are many things to consider when refinancing for a mortgage home. Think of the factors like if the recent interest rate is already low to save your money, or is it necessary for you to change the type of mortgage that you have now, and think as well what the possible effects are and how it affects your payment. In mortgage refinancing, the cost of your payments is the same as your original mortgage. It is indeed paying off the original mortgage loan that you have and asking for a new one which has a better charge. So when refinancing a mortgage always thinks of its possible requirements as well.

Here's an overview about the movie:
For the First Time is a love story between two headstrong people with two very different concepts of how to live the perfect life. KC plays a character not unlike her real life persona. She takes on the role of Sofia, a young, rich and beautiful career-oriented girl with the picture perfect life. Fia grew up in a household with a disciplinarian dad (played by Philip Salvador) with everything in her life being orderly and carefully planned. Richard takes on the role of Seth, a confident, happy-go-lucky playboy whose concept of a perfect plan is to have no plan at all. In other words, he is the total opposite of Fia. Seth just wants to enjoy life and not face the real world just yet. This brings him to faraway Greece, where he crosses paths with a vacationing Fia.
The exotic isles of Greece provide the perfect romantic setting as the two travelers find themselves falling in love at the place where they least expected it. Can the perfect little rich girl find the courage to come out of her comfort zone for the love she never thought she’d find? And can the handsome playboy finally be man enough to finally take life seriously?

Many esoteric teachings reveal that the number 8, the lemniscate or infinity symbol turned on its side, represents the achievement of balance and correction of imbalance. In the Tarot, 8 is the number of accomplishment and achievement.
Although the reality of 8-8-2008's energy means different things to different people, based on their unique natal charts, it dumps buckets of cold water on the notion that the date of 8-8-2008 is auspicious. The way to find the most important number mysticism vibration of any multiple-digit number is to add them up and reduce to a single digit (fadic addition). 8-8-2006 (8-8-8) includes more eight energy than 8-8-2008 (8-8-1) on this key level. While the year 2008 includes an eight, it's not purely an eight vibration: 2+0+0+8 = 10; 1+0 = 1. Thus, the date is really 8-8-1 on the most important, fundamental, numerological level. Also, the 1 and 2000 of 2008 carry more weight than the 8. Numerology dictates that eight does symbolically have some advantages over other numbers, especially in relation to control, money, power, and status. Some characteristics of the number eight can be found on the third page of the Numerology Decoder software chart linked below. Eight can represent great rewards, yet it can also symbolize huge challenges, depending on the rest of the indicators in the charts. On a positive note, the 'Life Path' (the most important basic calculation in modern numerology) of 8-8-08 is indeed eight (8+8+1=17/8), so at least the desire for eight is fulfilled potently that way (along with the day of eight and the minor symbolic influence of the 08 of 2008). It's unfortunate though that there's so much malefic seven associated with the date.

Here are some of the top ten IT health concerns:
1: A slug’s life >> When the only body part you move in your job is your mouse finger, you just have to take fitness into your own hands. Do you have to train for a marathon to lose some weight? Not at all, according to Dr. James Levine of the Mayo Clinic. He found that the time spent sitting was more likely to correlate with weight gain than the lack of vigorous exercise. You can keep slim, according to Levine, by walking slowly (about 0.7 mph) two to three hours a day.
2: SIT happens >> Weight gain can creep up on you, but it’s not an emergency in itself. A much more serious hazard of office work is seated immobility thromboembolism (SIT). This problem occurs when blood clots form in the legs (deep vein thrombosis) or lungs (pulmonary embolism) in people who spend a long time sitting.
3: So many headaches >> From the flicker of fluorescent lights to the hunched-up debugging posture, the conditions of your cube farm conspire to cause headaches. Pagers, end users, and the threat of outsourcing provide additional stress to kindle a dandy migraine or tension headache. Downing Tylenol or ibuprofen several times a week can backfire by making your pain more tenacious. If you get in a pattern of frequent headaches, see a doctor to get out of the rut.
4: The bobblehead syndrome >> Do you nod off frequently at your desk and perhaps even have brief dreams? These episodes, called microsleeps, may indicate you’re sleep deprived. It’s natural for the human body to crave a siesta after lunch, but excessive daytime sleepiness needs to be treated. Most adults need seven to eight hours of sleep a night, so simply going to bed earlier may be all you need.
5: Hurting hands >> Although your hands and wrists may be sore from intensive typing, there’s not a whole lot of evidence to link keyboard use to carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). A 2007 study of men who worked at video display terminals found an association of CTS with high body mass index (BMI) and job seniority — but not with specific tasks related to computer usage. Still, many conditions other than CTS can make your hands and wrists hurt, so it’s wise to check with your doctor to try to get some relief.
6: Relax harder >> How is it that sitting on your chair and looking at a monitor can make your back, neck, and shoulder muscles feel like you’ve spent eight hours painting a ceiling? Your tense posture may be part of the problem. Improving the ergonomics of your work area may help take the stress off your upper body. Try not to transfer the tension in your mind to your muscles and take a break now and then to unclench.
7. Noxious invaders >> The dry air of a typical office certainly doesn’t help your immune systems ward off your coworkers’ coughs, but hey, at least you’re not sitting in a daycare center. There are hundreds of cold viruses, plus several influenza viruses each year.
8: Eye strain >> Watching a backlit screen two feet away for four hours at a time isn’t really natural, is it? So it’s no surprise that people in IT complain about irritated eyes and declining visual acuity.
9: Heavy lifting >> If your job requires you to lift, lower, and/or carry equipment around, you might find yourself battling back pain. Maybe you spend your days installing workstations or inserting/removing computers from racks — and if you’re used to the work and know the right way to protect yourself in the process, you might not have any problems at all. But if it’s an occasional task, or if you don’t follow some basic precautions, you could wind up with a painful injury or chronic back trouble.
10: Something in the air >> If you work on a lot of systems, you’re no stranger to dust. Even a well-maintained machine in a clean, ventilated area is going to pull in plenty of it. And if you work on customers’ computers or make a lot of workstation calls, you’re going to feel like Tom Joad before long.
