Predictions For the 2009 F1 Championship

The 2008 Formula One season has just ended in what can only be called dramatic fashion. Lewis Hamilton rescued his championship by passing a slick shod Toyota in the rain in the last corner of the last lap of the season. It simply does not get any better or crazier than that.We know that Hamilton has one the Driver’s Championship and Ferrari the Constructor’s Championship this year, but what about the 2009 season. Will it be more of the same or can we expect more changes such as the rise of BMW this year?The answer is we can expect 2009 to be a very interesting year. Why? It comes down to a simple fact. To save money and make passing more plausible, the cars of the 2009 season will look nothing like those of the 2008 season. Many of the aero pieces used to create down force are going to be banned. The goal is to give drivers the ability to pass without being hurt by dirty air. Heck, we are even going back to slick tires.This clean slate means the teams cannot just continue to develop the 2008 cars. They basically have to start from scratch and this raises some very interesting issues regarding who will be on pace next season and who will not.My pick for the team to surprise is Renault. Fernando Alonso is many things good and bad, but he is undisputedly a great car developer. Look at how the 2008 Renault developed from a pathetic middle of the pack car to a race winner. Alonso looked particularly optimistic at the closing press conference for the Brazilian Grand Prix, which makes you think Renault could be a serious player again in 2009. BMW is also a team to watch, but their fall off at the end of 2008 cannot be dismissed without concern.What team could be looking at a bit of a fall down the pecking order? The answer is McLaren. The team has gobs of money, but one has to look at the last five years to see the potential problem. Before Alonso arrived at McLaren for his one blustery year, the team was not competitive with Ferrari. In his one year, they became so and probably not because of the plans they allegedly stole from the company.Now that Alonso is gone and a new car must be developed, can McLaren do it? The engineers are up to it, but the input of a quality driver is critical. Schumacher had his team at Ferrari. Alonso clearly has it at Renault. Lewis Hamilton can drive the wheels off a car, but the question now is can he develop one? If he can, he could go on a Schumacher like streak of winning. If he cannot, McLaren could fall back.What about the other teams? The most interesting team is Honda. To say the team is a disaster would be an understatement. It is hard to imagine the powers that be at Honda will keep funding such an embarrassment for much longer. The golden ray of hope for the team is Ross Brawn, who did some magic at Ferrari. He has to have something to work with however, and the current Honda set up is just all wrong. Whether the company is willing to spend the money and time on two to four years of development is doubtful at best given the economic situation in the world. A betting man says Honda stays with it through 2009, but leaves F1 in 2010 unless a major breakthrough is made.The distressing sign of the 2008 season will be the state of the Williams team. One of the great teams of Formula One, the fall has been long and hard over the last few years. The team simply cannot compete with the money being invested by manufacturers. With the economy going in the tank, it appears to be only a matter of time before Williams calls it a day. In fact, they team just lost a big sponsor in Royal Bank of Scotland, which has fallen in the banking crisis. Simply put, where is the Williams team going to get money? The day the great Frank Williams is out of Formula One will be a sad day indeed.Indeed, Formula One stands at a key point in time. There have always been dominant teams and also rans, but the ability of the also rans to even form a team is now in question. The loss of Super Aguri this year was hardly a surprise, but more teams could be in trouble. While Force India will remain since it is the play thing of a billionaire, one of the Red Bull teams may be sold or liquidated. The ability of Williams to continue to take a financial beating is also very questionable.If Formula One loses many of its privateers, the races will become a farce. A twelve car lineup of McLaren, Ferrari, Renault, BMW, Toyota and Honda would be a joke and it is doubtful many would tune in to watch the races. At the same time, F1 is all about technology, so standardizing the technology to save money seems a bit of a joke. Ferrari and other teams have already threatened to leave if a standardized engine is mandated. The issue of costs versus technology will continue to be a major issue over the next few years and one suspects F1 in 2011 will look nothing like it did in 2009.So, what will 2009 ultimately produce? I’ll say Renault and BMW both give McLaren and Ferrari a run for their money. Alonso wins the Driver’s Championship, but a weak second driver for Renault results in Ferrari taking the Constructor’s title. Unfortunately, it will also be the last year for Williams in Formula One.

Virtual Private Network and Network Connections


In information technology, a network is a series of points or nodes interconnected by communication paths.

Networks can interconnect with other networks and contain subnetworks.
Local Area Network (LAN)

A local area network (LAN) is a group of computers and associated devices that share a common communications line or wireless link.

Typically, connected devices share the resources of a single processor or server within a small geographic area (for example, within an office building).

Usually, the server has applications and data storage that are shared in common by multiple computer users.

A local area network may serve as few as two or three users (for example, in a home network) or as many as thousands of users (for example, in an FDDI network). See also: WAN and MAN
Wide Area Network (WAN)

A wide area network (WAN) is a geographically dispersed telecommunications network.

The term distinguishes a broader telecommunication structure from a local area network (LAN).

A wide area network may be privately owned or rented, but the term usually connotes the inclusion of public (shared user) networks.

An intermediate form of network in terms of geography is a metropolitan area network (MAN).
Metropolitan Area Network (MAN)

A metropolitan area network (MAN) is a network that interconnects users with computer resources in a geographic area or region larger than that covered by even a large local area network (LAN) but smaller than the area covered by a wide area network (WAN).

The term is applied to the interconnection of networks in a city into a single larger network (which may then also offer efficient connection to a wide area network).

It is also used to mean the interconnection of several local area networks by bridging them with backbone lines.

The latter usage is also sometimes referred to as a campus network.
Network Backbone

A backbone is a larger transmission line that carries data gathered from smaller lines that interconnect with it.

In a network, a node is a connection point, either a redistribution point or an end point for data transmissions.

In general, a node has programmed or engineered capability to recognize and process or forward transmissions to other nodes.For Further Details and More Sources Your VPN Doctor has the Cure!

A Big Bright Spot in a Bad Economy

As Americans and other citizens of the world fully know, the U.S. economy and the economies of most other countries have been weak to bad in the past couple of years. Downturns and recessions, although they are inevitable aspects of economic cycles, are extremely painful for many people.One Big Bright Spot:One big bright spot, however, is the chocolate industry. It may be surprising to some, but not to chocolate industry watchers. Chocolate sales were up in the Great Depression of the 1930’s and they were up during every recession since then including the most recent. Sales of chocolate and cocoa products in the $80 billion chocolate industry have risen substantially in the past couple of years.Why does the sale of chocolate and cocoa products increase when the sales of almost everything else go down?A Mood Enhancer:The most common answer from the experts is that the ingredients in chocolate, especially dark chocolate and cocoa, are a powerful mood enhancer. When times get tough and people tend to feel down or depressed, they look for something affordable to lift their moods and make them feel better and happier. Market research by major chocolate companies confirms this as well.And given that theory it is no coincidence that the sale of inexpensive beers, cheap wines and cheap vodka also tend to rise or at least remain stable. More expensive beer, wine and liquor sales always drop in a weak economy. The problem is that beer, wine and liquors are actually depressants, not mood lifters. They may be more suited to escapists who may have to tolerate a cheap liquor hangover, rather than people who just want to enjoy some good chocolate and have their mood lifted.The Big Boys:Hershey Company, the largest retailer of chocolate products in the Unites States has reported publicly that its chocolate sales have climbed up close to 8% over the past two years and that its profits have been up over 25% in that period, in some part, thanks to price increases on chocolate bars because of the increased demand. Recently its common stock has been trading well over 45% higher than it was two years ago.Other major chocolate companies in the USA, England, Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland have reported increases in chocolate sales as well over the past two years. They have all noticed that recent articles and research findings posted on the Internet have stimulated new interest in dark chocolate and cocoa products as significant health foods.The Science:In the early 2000’s a great deal of scientific and medical research had proven that cocoa, acai berries and dark chocolate contained the highest concentrations of natural antioxidants of any commonly eaten food substances on the planet. They came up with tests and a scoring scale for antioxidants called the ORAC scale. ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity, or the antioxidants’ abilities to neutralize dangerous free radicals that are harmful to cells in the body. This was the beginning of the worldwide high antioxidant movement. They also discovered that 70% cocoa content dark chocolate and cocoa powder itself contained two of the highest concentrations of antioxidants. Dark chocolate and pure cocoa had become an authentic, scientifically proven health foods. Acai berries and blueberries also scored near the top in antioxidants.A Major Worldwide Problem:At about the same time, it was discovered that when commercial 70% dark chocolate products are manufactured, although they are considered “healthy,” they loose much of the antioxidants in the heating and alkalizing process. Scientists learned that milk chocolates contain virtually no antioxidants and their high sugar and fat content actually makes them “unhealthy.” In addition, most contain waxes, hydrogenated oils, fillers and preservatives.Statistics show that over 90% of people on our planet eat chocolate regularly. Nearly 45% eat it almost daily. The problem is that most of the chocolate consumed is the “unhealthy” kind: it is extremely low in antioxidants, it is commercially alkalized, it is high in calories, and it is full of unhealthy refined sugar, waxes, fillers, preservatives and milk fats. Chocolates that are high in refined sugars also promote sugar addictions and could lead to diabetes. These commercial chocolates can be very unhealthy for adults and kids alike. Anyone interested in good health knows that this has to change.One Company Unique in the Industry:About six years ago, a privately held $300 million US-based chocolate company called MXI Corp, that had been marketing diabetic-safe chocolate products through Wal-Mart and Target stores for several years, decide to assemble a team of chocolate scientist and developers in Belgium to develop a new “ultra-healthy” chocolate. They wanted to create some all-natural low-fat dark chocolate and cocoa products containing pure unheated cocoa, acai berries and blue berries.The Results: About five years ago they created and patented a new special scientific process to manufacture cold pressed non-alkalized all-natural chocolate products that retain their high antioxidant content. These products contain pure, natural cocoa powder, acai berries and blue berries. They are low in fat, they use natural low glycemic sweeteners and they are ultra-high in natural antioxidants. Some of the products are kosher. All are laboratory tested to guarantee the highest ORAC levels. They have also proven to be quite effective for weight loss and weight control. In addition to being mood enhancers because of the cacao content, the cocoa and acai berries provide natural antioxidants, flavonoids, catechins and epicatechins that benefit the body’s cellular health, and that can improve the health of every system of the body.The Doctors:Because of the important discoveries by MXI Corp and their exclusive line of nine ultra-high antioxidant “healthy” chocolate and acai berry products, plus the endorsements of thousands of doctor around the world and the buzz on the web, their sales have grow much faster than the rest of the chocolate industry. Because of the proven health benefits, over the past four years, the sales of MXI Corp’s Xocai products have increased by an average of over 43% annually – tops in the chocolate industry,The Distributors:MXI Corp and Xocai products also benefit from their network of independent distributors worldwide. Because of weak economies, many budding entrepreneurs and home business seekers have been looking for that rare business that is booming, and they have become MXI Corp distributors. Healthy chocolate entrepreneurs love that fact that the healthy chocolate market is still 99% open and poised for massive growth.It is very good to know that the chocolate industry as a whole, and MXI Corp in particular, truly represent a big bright spot in this weak economy.

10 Ways to Reject the Recession and Create a Thriving Business

In a time when the lead news stories focus on business downsizing, the rising costs of gas and groceries and general economic turmoil, it is hard to avoid feeling the “recession depression.” But as business owners we have two choices: we can let the media send us into panic mode or we can view the economic downturn as an opportunity.This is a time in the economy when millionaires are made. While some businesses are giving up and closing their doors, their competitors are seizing opportunities. Which side would you rather be on? Now is the time for you to rise above it-to stay a step ahead of your competition and Reject the Recession!Here are ten ways to thrive in tough times:1. Keep the Marketing Wheels in Motion
Though your first instinct may be to cut costs, this is the worst time to cut back on marketing. Studies show that businesses that continue marketing through a slow economy are the ones that come out ahead when the economy begins to turn. Make sure you have a marketing plan and stick to it. If your current marketing efforts aren’t producing results, try new strategies. When done correctly, marketing is an expense that should pay for itself. Find the strategies that work and then keep doing them.2. Don’t Be Afraid to Discount
The reality is that consumers are holding on tighter to their wallets. The key to unlock their dollars is in discounts. Take a cue from the big department stores-they are holding incredible sales and offering more coupons than ever. Reevaluate your pricing strategy and offer discounts off your most popular products and services. This may also be a good time to lower your prices across the board and then advertise your “New Lower Prices!” You can always raise them again later.3. Leverage the Internet
Are you selling products and services from your website? Can you expand your sales channels by selling on eBay or another online venue? Are you reaching your customers with e-mail marketing? Is your website optimized for the search engines? It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to implement an online marketing and sales strategy. Even if you simply add gift certificate purchases to your website, you could uncover a whole new revenue stream. Seek out an online marketing expert and evaluate the opportunities.4. Form a Mastermind Group
Get together with your staff or assemble a small group of people who understand your business and brainstorm opportunities. When several people get together with a blank slate and some good energy, magic can happen. Ask for ideas-you might be surprised by the results.5. Tap into a New Niche
Is there a niche that you have been meaning to focus on? Can you uncover a new market that makes sense for your business? For example, a florist that specializes in weddings could pursue the corporate market, a residential real estate agent could go after the investor community or a virtual assistant could decide to specialize in serving the unique needs of financial planners. Pick a new market and then develop a plan of attack.6. Reach Out to Your Customer Base
One of the most overlooked business opportunities comes from your existing and past clients. The fact that they have already done business with you makes it far more likely that they will do business with you in the future. Make sure you are marketing to them, reaching out and reminding them that you are there. Ask them for referrals and offer a powerful incentive such as a cash reward or gift card for referrals. Never let a referral go unnoticed!7. Make Improvements
This is an ideal time to evaluate all of your policies and procedures. Do they make sense in this economy? Is your customer service team delivering up to your standards? Could your sales team benefit from some additional training? How can you help your company perform even better? What are steps you can take to improve customer loyalty? Look at your business through a magnifying class and seize the opportunity to improve it across the board.8. Survey Your Customers
Much can be uncovered by reaching out to your customers and asking them for feedback. Develop a short list of questions that include ratings on your products, services and staff. Ask specific questions such as, “How can we improve your experience with us?” Tools such as http://www.SurveyMonkey.com can help you accomplish this easily. Once you receive the survey results, evaluate them and take action to make improvements. You will undoubtedly find themes in the answers such as, “It takes too long to get a call back.” Let your customers know that you heard them and share what improvements you are making as a result of their survey responses.9. Keep an Eye on Capital
What goes down must come up and the economy will rebound, though it may be awhile. If business is slower than usual, form a plan for getting through this period. You might need to open a line of credit, visit your bank and apply for a loan, seek private funding or even bring in a partner. Running out of capital can quickly kill a business. Make sure you assess how much you may need before you need it and have a plan for forging ahead.10. Get Help and Keep Your Eye on the Prize
Now is a great time to sharpen your own skills. Take classes, read books and network with others in your industry so you can learn from them. Get involved in your trade association and make sure you are on top of your game. Look for joint venture opportunities. Make yourself more efficient by outsourcing services that consume your valuable time. For example, if you are doing the bookkeeping for your business, hand that off to someone else so you can have more time to focus on what you do best. Also, determine your priorities. Where should you be spending your time? What can you do to make your company bigger, better and stronger? Leave the worrying to your competitors and instead seek out opportunities and stay positive. When you put the right energy and focus into your business-despite the economy-the results can extraordinary.
