7 Life Changes That Could Help Your Finances
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
At first, Brian Carter's move to South Carolina seemed like an extreme measure to take in order to fix his finances. After all, on the surface, he had a great life. He was living in sunny San Diego, married to his true love, and had a flexible work schedule as a freelance digital marketer. The catch, however, was that his income fluctuated -- a lot. In 2007 he hit a dry spell and wasn't generating steady revenue. His wife, Lynda, took on 50- to 60-hour weeks as an acupuncturist just to cover the day-to-day bills -- and with the weight of the household expenses on her shoulders, she was starting to feel the strain. "She got to a point where she needed to confront me and say, 'You've got to do something -- this is too much work for me!' " Carter, 41, recalls. While on the job hunt, he found a promising gig as the director of search and social marketing at an ad agency. It paid in the low six figures, and the professional opportunities were right up his alley. The hitch? It ...

Disability didn't stop this local author
Blue Ridge Now - over 3 years
Mary Jane Strickland is a lady with cerebral palsy. She hasn't been out of a wheelchair since she was a little girl. She has lived the past 20-some years at the Brian Center nursing home in Laurel Park. She can't hold a pencil, wash a glass, make a bed or fry an egg, but she can type. When she was a teenager, her adoptive dad took the harness out of a construction hard hat, welded a metal rod to the front band and attached a pencil eraser to the end. He then bought her an electric typewriter. That was the start of her writing career, which consisted of daily letters to all her extended family members and friends, culminating with her book of reminisces of what it was like growing up on a Carolina tobacco farm in the '40s and early '50s. My favorite story is the wagon and the goat that pulled her around in it, and the young uncle who decided the goat should give him a ride, also. The goat didn't like the uncle much to start with, so after some fits and starts, the goat launched its ...

SeaWorld Criticized After Video Release Shows Dolphin Hurt, Bleeding At Park
Huffington Post - over 3 years
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is firing more criticism at SeaWorld after video was uncovered showing a hurt and bleeding dolphin at the park's Texas location, just days after another recording showed a pilot whale stuck on the ledge of a pool with no immediate help. PETA published the video of the hurt dolphin on its website Monday. In the footage, a dolphin can be seen lying injured and bleeding on the concrete beside a pool at the SeaWorld in San Antonio, Texas. PETA media coordinator David Perle told The Huffington Post that a whistleblower gave the video to the organization. The incident happened while a tour group was feeding the dolphins before the park opened to the public, PETA said in a statement. The dolphin was hurt after it crashed into another dolphin during a trick and was thrown from the tank. Passersby can be seen in the video looking at the injured sea creature as they walked past. One can be heard saying "Aw, poor guy," as the dolphin ...

Georgia sophomore Brian Carter will be playing in the first professional tournament of his career on a sponsor exemption in teh Stadion Classic at UGA. (UGA photo by Evey Wilson) ATHENS – Georgia’s Brian Carter is playing in his first professional golf tournament on Thursday. He’s worried, but it’s not what you’d think. Weighing most heavily on Carter’s mind on the eve of the Stadion Classic at UGA golf tournament – a Nationwide Tour event — was how he was going to do in three final exams. While the professionals were practicing on the UGA Golf Course and playing in Wednesday’s pro-am, Carter was going to be in the middle of a comprehensive final in consumer economics. “I’m probably more nervous about that than I am the golf,” said Carter, a sophomore from Augusta. Carter had nothing on teammate Nicholas Reach. The freshman from Moscow, Pa., had finals Wednesday in calculus and economics. He, too, is going to be teeing off with the pros on Thursday. “I’ve been grinding ...

Thermaltake Level 10 GT COD case mod at Taipei Game Show 2012
Tweak Town - about 5 years
Thermaltake Level 10 GT COD case mod at Taipei Game Show 2012 www.tweaktown.com We hunted high and low for hardware at the Taipei Game Show earlier today when we were there, but being a game show, it was obviously dominated with a strong gaming focus. Along side the Razer Blade eyes-on video we just posted, one of the other really hot bits of hardware was the Thermaltake Level 10 GT case mod by Brian Carter. Brian named it the "COD" and it follows a really kick-ass Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 theme with a motorized and spinning gun at the front of the case, a rocket launcher at the top and on the side panel you'll find the medic kit for your war wounds as well as an ammo pack to keep on killing. Back in the day we would just had some neon lights to our cases and call it a day when it came to case modding, nowadays they are doing crazy good stuff like this. I love it!
