Are you entering a field where you may have to work with computer-aided design (CAD) and AutoCAD? Do you need to learn the difference between them? Computer-aided design is the general term that applies to the use of computers in the design of houses, office buildings, interiors and anything else that previously required hands-on drafting. AutoCAD is a specific piece of software used by many architects and designers for commercial design purposes.
Computer-aided design, or CAD, is designed to take basic geometric shapes and manipulate them into a specific design. CAD applications are computer-driven, allowing designers to collaborate from anywhere in the world via the Internet. CAD applications eliminate the need for the teams of onsite drafters that were formerly used to create designs for industry.
AutoCAD is a CAD application that was developed by Autodesk, Inc., in 1982, to aid programmers in all aspects of 2D and 3D design (www.autodesk.com). Today, the company has over 80

Cars are now a utility, than a luxury. However, due to economic crunches, sometimes it is not possible to be able to buy a brand new car. Toyota cars are the best when one looks at the Toyota parts. Therefore, people have started buying used Toyota in Ontario.
One of the greatest advantages of purchasing used Toyota in Ontario is that the customer can end up saving a lot of money. Used Toyota cars are of good quality and are very reasonable. The buyers can go onto purchase any model as per their wishes and preference, even if they are purchasing used cars. Used Toyota in Ontario is great and the Toyota parts are reliable as well as durable.
There are some pointers one has to follow when one decides to buy a used Toyota car. Firstly, the way the car has been used by previous owners speaks a lot about the car's condition at present. Car's present condition is reflexive of the way the car has been previously handled and used. Make sure that the car is not damaged from any angle.Read More »from Toyota Cars Are Sturdy, Reliable and Efficient

Sometimes when we're in life scenarios that aren't ideal, we may find ourselves over-exaggerating the details. Our job is better, relationships and finances are healthier… maybe we've seen and experienced more, had amazing adventures or owned things that are totally outside our means. We fluff up our titles, make acquaintances out to be great friends and neglect to mention the REALITY of our life, which (along with less "exciting" bits and pieces) includes feelings of doubt, dissatisfaction and lack of fulfillment.
If you can't get honest with others about the reality of your situation, you're probably spending a good bit of time avoiding it yourself… and if you're avoiding the TRUTH about your life, you're never going to be able to get to where you really want to be (you know… the fluffed up version!).
KNOW THAT WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW IS PERFECT.

For the past several weeks I've been flip flopping between feeling inspired and feeling hopeless. I've always been passionate about working towards a peaceful society and an efficient government, and the recent Occupy movement has given me hope that others want the same type of efficient government that I do. I've been inspired by the movement and have put in much effort to help the movement as much as I can.Read More »from User Post: What do you do when you feel hopeless?
However, the Occupy movement is largely about making government officials accountable to the people, and that will only work if ALL citizens start paying attention and interacting with the government. I want this to happen so badly, but I realize it is out of my control.
I can only control my own actions; not others'. Yet what I want - a government accountable to the people and not special interests - can only happen if others join in the movement, so my desires are beyond my control. This leaves me feeling quite hopeless.

When General Mills reduced the level of sugar in its cereals, the sweetest offerings (like me Lucky Charms) faced a technical problem. They didn't always float.Read More »from R.I.P. Lucky Charms? Sugary cereals a dying breed in healthier breakfast market
"Not only do the cereal's frosted oats need to taste sweet enough to keep kids clamoring, they have to float in milk for at least three minutes," The Wall Street Journal's Julie Jargon reports. Mills' mandate for healthier cereals meant Charms and its marshmallow mixed compatriots drop at least five grams of sugar from their recipe. The refined versions now have 10 grams of sugar, as opposed to 15 grams, just enough to stay buoyant, still too much to be considered healthy.
But in the coming years, Mills has pledged to keep reducing that number, which may mean the end of a cartoon-and-candy breakfast era.
Any lower than 9 grams of sugar and some cereals just won't hold up. "We know that right around nine grams of sugar per serving, you're at the breaking point where the sugar level is so low that the sweetness is not enough
When I made the decision recently to do a complete re-design of my own website, I quickly realized that I would get better results if I could throttle back on my impulse to dive right in and instead stop to make a plan first. I needed to be clear on exactly what I wanted to accomplish, why I wanted or needed to achieve this goal and how much time and energy I could or should expend. The results while always a work in progress were astonishingly close to the picture I held in my head and I finished within my self-imposed deadline.
As always, I am eager to share my methods (though they may sometimes resemble madness) in the hopes that it will help you be successful in making changes in your life or business, whatever they may be.

Yet again , the GOP and their gang of thugs in the senate , have voted in favor of THEIR lifestyle , and the continuance of the corporate exploitation of the American working class . While a realistic twenty per cent of working class Americans were the next morning standing in line awaiting a job interview far below their training and qualifications , John Boneheader ( read boehner ) and his cohorts were lining up for their tee-off time at some exclusive country club golf course where the greens fees ( per member ) easily exceed three times the gross average household income of more the eighty percent of America's working class. While the GOP and their corporate sympathizers , have voted against the presidents 447 billion job stimulus program . Regardless of their excuses for screwing over American desparately struggling working class families . One of the most fundamental reasons behind this malicious , villainous slap in the face to Americans struggling jobless , is simply thatRead More »from AMERICA'S WORKING CLASS SCREWED BY GOP ; AGAIN
AAAARGH! It was the same as the job fair at Earle Brown. There might have been a few more companies, but it was the same not-my-type-of-jobs at all.
The work-readiness class was about interviewing. I wore my interview/ funeral suit.When I left the Minneapolis Convention Center, there was a monsoon, and naturally I got soaked.
The Occupy Wall Street protests, which have been taking place in major cities across the country for the past few weeks, are proving to be excellent at making American citizens aware of how we got into the economic problems our country is facing (lack of accountability from elected officials) and motivated to demand change from said elected officials. However, that is where the benefits of protesting ends. In order to progress with the long term change that this country needs to get back on track, Americans need to organize together and engage with elected officials.Read More »from How to turn protests into long term change
Occupystrategy.com was created to provide the resources and ideas needed for Americans to make long term changes in our government. The website encourages every single American to make interaction with elected officials a normal part of daily life. This is a lifestyle change that is required of all of us, and it is 100% necessary if we want any progress to be made in our country.
