Warren Buffett’s 3 Favorite Books: A guide to The Intelligent Investor, Security Analysis, and The Wealth of Nations (Warren Buffett's 3 Favorite Books Book 1)
Warren Buffett’s 3 Favorite Books: A guide to The Intelligent Investor, Security Analysis, and The Wealth of Nations (Warren Buffett's 3 Favorite Books Book 1)
Yes, the title and marketing posture is shamelessly mercenary, calculated to cash-in on the Buffet name and brand.

Yes, the first section really and truly is about a kid running a lemonade stand.

But.

I'm glad I bought and read the book.

Surprisingly, given the bait and switch of using Buffet's name and branding and given that his three "favorite" books are barely mentioned, their content not delved into, and serve only as launching points -- the author has written an honest and sincere book.

I'll repeat that: This is an honest and sincere book.

And useful.

If, like me, you grew up without anyone actually TEACHING you about money, let alone stocks and bonds, the extended and hookey lemonade stand metaphor actually works. You WILL learn the fundamentals of stocks and bonds by examining the kid's adventures in retailing lemonade. (Our schools still do not teach students about money. Osmosis is good for nourishing plants, but if you really want to help people avoid poverty and pain and dependency, teach them about money; what it is, why it is, how it can be used. This author seems to be attempting to do just that, and for those well-intentioned reasons.)

The author does the math, and breaks it down so you can do the math on yor own. You could of course read Graham's classic, The Intelligent Investor, and do the math on your own. But gee whiz, it is always easier faster and more efficient if you have a decent teacher to help you. And, if you're like me, you can read through the whole book (it's not too long) and then go back and do the math, applying it to the real world of companies you're considering investing in. (I do think it would be best to read Graham's Intelligent Investor BEFORE reading this book. Going to the source text first is almost always better than reading what has been derived from that source.)

All of this is my longwinded way of saying, if you are hesitating and not sure if you should buy this book, go ahead. Put aside its used car salesman title/marketing. The content (the author's work) is forthright, honest, transparent. (Besides, you have 14 days to return the book for a refund if your experience is different from mine!So what's to worry? Go for it. ;-)

PS: I haven't tried his videos yet, but probably will.
Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter 2200Watt DC 12volt to AC 120volt with Dual AC Outlets and 2.4A USB Port & LED Display Remote Controller for RV Trucks Boats and Emergency
Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter 2200Watt DC 12volt to AC 120volt with Dual AC Outlets and 2.4A USB Port & LED Display Remote Controller for RV Trucks Boats and Emergency
This is my initial review after installing and using the inverter for awhile. I’m using it with my offgrid solar PV system. (I also have a larger grid-tied system, but of course that goes down when the grid does, so having an independent smaller offgrid system gives a nice balance of cost-effectiveness, redundancy, and emergency power.)

I greatly prefer pure sine inverters because they simply play better with motors, electronics, really everything designed to be used with AC power. Such things will work with “modified sine wave” for awhile, maybe for quite awhile, but never as well. For instance, motors “buzz” and some things can tend to break if they aren’t robust. However, prior to now I’ve used a 600W pure sine and a 2000w modified sine inverter in parallel because when I built my system one couldn’t get a decent pure sine inverter of this capacity at this low price point. So I was happy to get my hands on this one.

As a guy who has gone through a lot of inverters over the years and helped others set their systems up, I’ll note a few things. First, don’t buy inverters on your Amazon-affiliate charge card IF you want the extended warranty to cover them. That’s an expensive lesson I learned the hard way; even if they are advertised for solar use, and never used in or near a car, they consider it “automotive” gear and will deny an extended-warranty claim.

Also, I love China, great country, great people. Currently they make nearly all our stuff, and the quality coming out of China varies a lot. There are a lot of no-name inverters which you’ll order based on the specs, and when they get to you they’re tiny and clearly not anything like the specs they have been sold with. Such over-spec’ing occurs with all sorts of Chinese-made products, particularly electric and electronic products. This inverter is made in China, which means I didn’t exactly know what to expect, having no familiarity with this brand.

So I’m happy to say that so far I’m quite impressed. The unit feels high-quality, it’s hefty, it’s designed with the sort of cast aluminum body construction which the best inverters have, and it seems well-designed from the point of view of functionality. The power attachment points are robust, well-designed, and easy to use and the attachment cables are twinned 4-gauge to my eye.. that is, two cables per connector. The robustness of the power connections has in my experience been one indicator of how well-built they may be, because the designers design for the actual capacity, not the promoted capacity.

The unit feels great to me. It was straightforward to hook it up, for now taking the place of the older 2000w modified-sine inverter. It has a very simple lighted LED display rather than the fancier displays which many units have now, but it does multiple duty, by showing DC line voltage and alternating with the watts being output. The output watts are not as accurate as a dedicated AC power monitor, seemingly jumping in increments of 30 watts during my testing with nothing in between, but that’s certainly fine for most uses. The unit was silent under low load, with the fans not spinning up, which implies that they may have a decent thermostatic control.

The unit comes with a wired remote power switch which I won’t be using immediately, but it’s nice that it’s there. It also features screws for hard wiring of AC output if one wanted to wire the output to a cabin’s wiring or something similar.

It also states that it has a 3-year warranty, which is a nice sign. Of course actual support under warranty is often another story; and I hope I don’t have to report on that; but I will if need be.

I’ll revisit this review if I have more to say, or novel experiencies, with it as time goes on, but it earns an initial 5 stars - which I don’t give lightly - by being an impressive-seeming pure sine inverter which seems built to the advertised capacity.

I bought these to drill holes in the heads of some porcelain Santas I want to hang on my Christmas tree. I tried every kind of drill bit in the house, then I ordered these.

They ALMOST got a ZERO star rating, until I figured it out.

On the first try, I put the 1mm bit on a drill and started drilling...or trying to. It didn't even make a dent in old Santa's head. Boo!

Then my husband tried the 3mm. No luck

Then, my husband tried the 3mm under running water (as I found online that you should drill porcelain submerged). Success...but the hole was ridiculously big.

Finally, I had supreme success using the 1mm on a Dremmel (the drill simply wasn't spinning fast enough) with the Santa standing up in a coffee cup submerged in water so that the drilling site had just enough water over it to cover. The bit was through in less than 15 seconds for each Santa.

I had 18 Santas to drill and used one 1mm bit to the point of destruction, switched to another bit for the last few holes and it hardly looks used.

For my purposes, these bits are useless dry, but kick butt under water.

I started my search for the one Strange wore in the comic but this is the next best thing. I bought two the first one on Ebay that lights up. I think its sold on here for $80 I paid about $35 it's not licensed by Marvel as far as I can tell no COA. It has a cool box and the light is neat but it's not as well made. The one here that has the COA is my favorite out of the two. It's very well made and looks identical to the one in the movie. I've been a collector for 30 years so I have a bit of OCD. I compared this to the actual prop and it's close to dead on. Even down to the two different colors on the rope for the neck. Yes there is the fact you can see the green from the stone with the eye closed but I’m ok with that. Next month I’m buying the one from killerbody that has an eye that opens and closes but it $100. I'm going to leave pics of both so you can see the difference.
One Piece, Vol. 16: Carrying On His Will
One Piece, Vol. 16: Carrying On His Will
One piece is my favourite series for it's creative character designs , weird style, outlandish humor and simple yet deep/ enchanting story telling approach. Both visually and , this series has inspired in a unique way which almost no other comic/animated titles from japan have done before.

This volume brings us a new addition to the main cast of characters and a heartful tale !
Tony Tony Chopper may just look like another one of those annoyingly cute and adorable mascot characters that seem to be a traditional staple in these kinds of series , but he's so much more than that!
Just like the rest of the central cast he has a strong back story which explains his personality and the way he acts , his background story is even better than a lot of the characters around so far and is definitely one of my favourites.
Just see him as a human child, full of innocence and naivety ,what he is on the inside !
He is slowly going to mature as the story goes on, as he explores the world with his new friends !

This volume deals with the middle part of the Drum Kingdom sub-arc, which is one of the more enjoyable sub-arcs in my opinion. The highlight of the volume is definitely the background story of Chopper , as it's full of loneliness , friendship , heart , hope and tears. Very inspiring and touching , as are most of the tales behind the characters from this series.

One of the most enjoyable books that have been released so far in english , especially since there aren't any tedious fighting scenes that drag on too long in this volume.

My only gripe , is that the translated english version by Viz, seem to have a lot dialogue similar to the 4kids TV version. And 4kids can come up some pretty rubbish dialogue that doesn't fit.
The english version , because a lot of dialogue in this Viz translation seems to miss/ step around the point of a lot of the japanese dialogue in a lot of scenes.
But other than that, most of the english manga version is good enough, although the impact of some of the lines / jokes / scenes have been reduced due to dialogue changes.I think translators should be so creative sometimes.
End of Watch: A Novel
End of Watch: A Novel
It just keeps coming back to that day at the job fair, and the Mercedes Massacre.

Six years have passed since Brady Hartsfield drove a gray Mercedes into a crowd of desperate job seekers, killing eight and injuring many others. A year later, he ended up in a mental hospital, first in a coma, then awake, but with severe brain damage, enough to keep him from going to trial for that and the attempted murder of thousands.

Now, in "End of Watch," retired detective and co-owner of the investigative agency Finders Keepers learns about a murder suicide that tangentially points back to Hartsfield. As more clues come to light, it seems clear that Hartsfield is behind a series of suicides and attempted suicides, but how can that be possible, with him in a mental ward in a near-vegetative state? Thousands of lives could be on the line if Hodges, now deathly thin and ailing, can't figure it out, and stop the suicides in time.

Enough summary. This final book in the Bill Hodges Trilogy drew me right in. We find familiar and new characters we love and hate, all well-rounded with strong motivations. "End of Watch" adds a new element, psychic powers, likely brought on by an experimental drug, and it makes the story all the more terrifying.

The theme of suicide comes back strongly in this novel, and King includes a real suicide hotline number, 1-800-273-TALK.

"End of Watch" is a satisfying conclusion to the Bill Hodges Trilogy.
Home in the Valley: A Western Sextet
Home in the Valley: A Western Sextet
A fine fast read where you as the hero feel the grit in your teeth, smell the gunsmoke, feel the weight of carrying a wounded comerade, feel the rich blush of new love, all in the setting of great high desert/mountain country, lush grassy meadows, glossy cattle fattening under the sun and enriching the earth with with fresh feed grass/hay. Well watered pastures and feedlots are well defined by rocky outcroppings, arroyos, ridges sculpted by nature to make every landhold different and special. Add enough good people who work hard and relentlessly to reap the wealth thet the land and herds with yield and enough bad guys who want to take advantage of the short cuts of thievery, murder, double dealing, to become wealthy through someone else's investment in the virtues of an honest life. Then there is the fine line between being "good" and "bad" and how hard that is to figure out when your life is always on the line.
THE ROAD TO GANDOLFO an Explosion of Mirth and Suspense
THE ROAD TO GANDOLFO an Explosion of Mirth and Suspense
Robert Ludlum originally wrote this title and the sequel Road to Omaha under the pen name Michael Shepherd. He simply did not think people would conceive being able to write a humour/thriller.

Both books cover the exploits of General MacKenzie Hawkins a retired Army General who believed the exploited could seek revenge with his help especially where the establishment was concerned.

In the Road to Gandolfo it is General MacKenzie Hawkins verses the bureaucracy of the church.

A great story than in the end makes you happy that you read it.
Background to Danger
Background to Danger
This is probably my favorite Ambler novel so far (I've read 6), although it's not usually rated that highly by other readers or critics.

It's fast-moving, the naive protagonist (an Ambler hallmark), an intelligent political freelance journalist named Kenton, does something stupid in chapter One that lands him in the middle of the run-up to WWII, caught between Nazi spies and Soviet ones and having to rely on unexpected resourcefulness and some lucky encounters to escape a murder charge and sneak across borders. The Nazis are thoroughly despicable and well-characterized, with the nasty mastermind assassin Saridza under various names, and his sadistic English henchman, Capt Mailler (an inspiration perhaps for Ian Flaming's Red Grant).

Kenton's unexpected allies are the Soviet spies, brother and sister team Andreas and Tamara Zaleshoff, who speak English with Chicago accents (as a Chicago native, I found this very funny--Ambler has them talk like '30s gangsters), and their superior, the grotesque and brilliant polymath, Olga Smedoff, plus some red shirts killed along the way. (I wonder if the Zaleshoff siblings inspired Boris and Natasha, with a Mdme Big). Oh and the emaciated mute who was tortured by Czarists and is a Soviet as much from personal revenge as political faith. Even the minor characters are memorably sketched, with Kenton's journalist point of view providing a plausible foundation for some outre descriptions (e.g., Smedoff!).
There's plenty of low-violence suspense: two kidnappings, an interrupted torture session, a race against time escape as the air runs out and a James Bond-esque climatic car chase (Tamara is an ace driver). The plot is rather convoluted, although I never got lost (Ambler and Zaleshoff are always explaining things), with a satisfying denouement and much humor throughout.

Airplane!
Airplane!
Airplane! is one of the best comedies of all-time.

This Blu-ray transfer looks great and I found myself noticing a lot of things in the background that I'd never noticed before on other watches. Both of the movies look great and star the same 2 main characters played by Robert Hays and Julie Hagerty. If you're like me and you're too young to know who they are otherwise, they're Ted & Elaine on both journeys.

In the first film, there's a relentless onslaught of jokes. To me, the majority hit still to this day, and of course it becomes obvious how much humor there is the more you watch it. There's also an extended cameo by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar which is really funny as a basketball fan, and even the great talent Leslie Nielsen plays the Doctor charged with saving the flight mid-way through the film. Overall, this comedy classic holds as much potential for laughter as it did almost 40 years ago and it's amazingly rated PG.

The second film is not so great, and almost tries way too hard to keep the pace of its predecessor. It does get some jokes right, some of which are repeats or rehashes of jokes from the first film. But many fall flat, and that leaves this movie feeling empty compared to the first. I'd recommend watching it once, but otherwise it's a hard pass. It's really funny to see the influence Star Wars and other science fiction stories had on this movie as it appears to be catering to a particular point in time during the 80s...

Special features are slim, and only in the first film, but I do like the choices presented to you for commentary. There is a director's commentary which features Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker telling stories about the actors, creating their jokes, being on set, and much more. It's really quite a riot and by the end they've completely devolved into constant laughter. They state something at the end of the commentary about calling and giving it another go, and it seems they may have done so via the Long Haul Version which is the feature film spliced with interviews from them and other cast members. Additionally, there is a trivia track that you can play along with the feature film as well, giving you three options in consuming relatively the same information about the behind the scenes of the movie.

I did find my edition of this Blu-ray listed under Multi-Format at the time of review, which in my case did not include DVD or digital copies of either film. Whether or not intentional, this Blu-ray release is well worth the investment for new and old fans of Airplane! alike. I now plan on grabbing a copy of Zero Hour (frequently referenced by the directors in the commentary as an influence for this film) and giving that a spin. The case for this purchase came in excellent condition. No digital copy included.
Where Is Clifford?: A Lift the Flap Book (Clifford the Big Red Dog)
Where Is Clifford?: A Lift the Flap Book (Clifford the Big Red Dog)
I enjoyed reading this book it was fun to look under the flaps. Where is Clifford was a great book for people to read. The author of this book was Norman Bridwell. He did a good job writing this book by making the children guess if Clifford was under the flap on each page or not. There really wasn't much too it because on every page it just asked a question if and then you lift up the flap and look to see if Clifford is there or not. I recommend this book to children 12 and under. Over all this book took me about three minutes to read and was easy for my project
La hora de las brujas / The Witching Hour (Las Brujas de Mayfair) (Spanish Edition)
La hora de las brujas / The Witching Hour (Las Brujas de Mayfair) (Spanish Edition)
El primer libro de la trilogia "Las Brujas de Mayfair" de Anne Rice. Ya habia empezado a leerlo en el ebook, y como me estaba gustando he decido comprar la trilogia.

El libro a llegado en la fecha prevista, el repartidor me ha llamado para confirmar la dirección y a sido entregado por ASM.

• Punto negativo a sido por el empaquetado: El libro no venia con su plástico y por lo tanto, como se ve en las fotos viene con las esquinas dobladas.
El filo del libro tambien se nota, pero eso te lo encuentras en cualquier libro de libreria.
Lo de las esquinas hubiese preferido que no hubiese pasado.
• Punto positivo para la editorial por esta nueva edición, con unas portadas más adultas.

No le doy 5 estrellas por lo de las esquinas. La entrega de 10.
Harry Potter Wizard's Collection (Blu-ray / DVD Combo)
Harry Potter Wizard's Collection (Blu-ray / DVD Combo)
**UPDATED 6/17/13**
I've been slowly plodding through all 31 discs and finally hit a snag with DH1. It seems like those nasty "damaged movie" rumors are true, at least in part. Although the disc doesn't appear to be wholly damaged (I did check them all for scratches and found nothing out of the ordinary) this movie is unplayable in at least two parts, and it skips over a couple of scenes (it stops right when Ron is about to destroy the horcrux locket....effffff). I did attempt to call Amazon customer service but as the collection is no longer for sale through them, the most they were willing to offer me was a refund, despite it being past the return date. That doesn't work for me as I purchased this on a gold box deal and I'm not guaranteed that by spending more the quality control issue would even be fixed. So alas, it appears I am stuck with at least one damaged movie. I guess it's a good thing I didn't get rid of my old ultimate editions yet, so I still have at least one playable copy of DH. Just be aware that the QC issues haven't necessarily been rectified.

Let me preface this review by stating I bought this set during the Amazon lightning deal last week, so I paid $100 less than what it's going for now. I've wanted this since I heard it was being released last year, despite already owning (at that time) the Ultimate Editions of movies 1-6. I wasn't willing to pay $350 for it then, mostly because I just wasn't in a position to spend that kind of money. Despite buying DH 1&2 ultimate edition, I jumped on this lightning deal when I saw it because I wasn't sure I was ever going to see it for less. I am VERY glad I did.

This is not going to be a review full of whining about how expensive it is (though it is, quite obviously, expensive), or how it's cheap and Warner Brothers is just a bunch of greedy goblins for thinking any self-respecting Potter fan would dare be expected to pay this much for something that is not worth it. Those reviews were either A) written by Muggles (the worst sort imaginable) or B) written by people who don't even own this set.

I can say with full confidence that this set was most definitely worth the $250 price tag. It's actually probably worth the $350 Amazon normally charges, though not the $500 retail price (which I think most people know is a joke). I'm very thankful for having the opportunity to snag this for the lightning deal price, but I probably would have bought it for $350, I just would have waited and saved up a little longer for it. The detail on this set is ridiculous (or riddikulus), and I think Potter fans should be straight-up honored at the attention and care that went in to putting this together. Most complete movie collections out there come in some stupid slipcase, and maybe you'll get a dumb bust or action figure to go with it. Not so here. I'm not much for buying these collector thingies, mostly because they take up lots of room, but this is reminiscent of what I've seen of the super delux Lost set, or maybe even the Alias one that came in the Rambaldi box.

The box this thing comes in is MASSIVE, Hagrid-sized almost. It is NOT cheap cardboard, as others have noted, but a nice, thick, solid-feeling cardboard that is embossed with a pebbled-leather texture. There are metal handles and drawer pulls, and overall it has a nice, solid, sturdy feel. It's heavy too. So no cheap pacakaging or slipcases. The artwork is just lovely, and I think any real Potter fan will appreciate it. Each of the 8 movies comes in its own little cardboard book (like some kids books are made of), outfitted with its own coordinating color scheme that plays off the theme/color scheme of each movie. The discs included are the exact same things you'll find in the already released Ultimate Editions. What I will say is that the "extras" that came with the UE's (lenticular cards, collectible books, and character trading cards) are NOT included here, so the only thing that repeats is the actual disc-content. If you're a completist/super HP mega fan like me, you might want to hold on to whatever ultimate editions you have for this reason. I did not appear to receive any scratched discs like some others have, nor did any of my movies come out the cases. I haven't watched anything yet, but by the looks of it it's all perfect so it should be fine. No missing content either, so it appears they've sorted out their manufacturing issues.

The new content includes two books of graphic art, the Horcrux locket (metal Noble Collection version), a blue print poster map thing of Hogwarts, an EXTREMELY nice fabric tapestry wall hanging of the Hogwarts grounds, some sketches by Stuart Craig (very nice cardboard, all ready for framing) and some lithographs of art from each movie, also sutiable for framing. You also get a disc of exclusive-to-this-set bonus content; I have yet to watch that so I can't say if it's worth it or not, but it sure looks fun. You also get a little scroll with a code that enables you to download digital copies of all movies. Yes, I said download. You have to download the Flixster app (for your computer/smartphone/tablet), as I believe you do for all WB movies, but yes, you CAN download the movies to your device and watch them without needing to be online. You just need the Flixter app to do it, which IMO is not a huge deal, because it's not like they're going to be any better or worse watching through Windows Media Player or anything. So I call bollocks on anyone saying you can't download these and can only stream them. Lies. And we must not tell lies.

I'll wrap this up by saying that this set is marketed very specifically to collectors and mega-fans. If all you want is the movies, then this is not for you. If that's all you wanted, you have no right to go out there and complain that they're charging too much, because nobody's forcing you to buy it. It's a collector's set. You have the opportunity to go out there and buy the Ultimate Editions, thus obtaining almost the same amount of disc content you get here, plus they all have coordinated packaging that looks nice on a shelf together if you like that sort of thing. So what if you can't buy them all in one box? Does that really matter if you just want the movies? Probably not, so shut up if that's all your after.

If you don't already own any of the UE's, this set is a wonderful investment, even at the $350 price tag. If you consider you'll be paying around $30-$40 on average for each UE (depending on whether you're getting DVD or bluray, and depending on where you're buying it) you're paying a fair amount of extra money for the EXTREMELY nice presentation and extra collectibles and content. $350 is a fair price for this set. $500 is not, but nobody is going to be paying full price for this.

In closing, if you're a big HP fan, you CAN'T pass this up. You just can't. I know it's a lot of money, but the real HP fans out there (books and movies) are going to find so much to appreciate here. If you're scared of the price, it might be a good idea to get an Amazon card when you buy it. You'll get some money off and earn some points on it (not shilling for the card here, just offerring suggestions on taking the price down for those that might be concerned about it). If you just liked the movies and want maybe a handful of extras, you are much better off buying the individual UE's or waiting for a possible mid-priced set (which may never come). If you just want the movies with no frills, get the $50 box set that's out there. If you're one of those weirdos that has some odd sense of entitlement that, as a fan, you should be automatically entitled to the biggest bestest set on the planet, with loads of extras, for a ridiculously low price, then I suggest you either be quiet or stand in front of a mirror and cast a crucio curse on yourself. It's not going to happen. You get a lot of bang for your buck here, and while it might not suit a lot of fans, the people it IS marketed towards are going to LOVE it. It's obvious a lot of thought was put into this set, and it is definitely on the same level as some of the other similar mega collection sets out there. It's not like WB got together with some Death Eaters and purposely conspired to charge a lot just to HP fans. Members of other fandoms have been subjected to the same pricing system as us Potterheads, so we are definitely not alone.

I daresay after opening this box that I would be able to cast quite the formidable patronus. It's THAT awesome.

ASURION 2 Year Mobile Accident Protection Plan with Tech Support $175-199.99
I contacted Asurion by chat on May 09 to file a claim for a broken screen on a Motorola MogoG model XTI925-6. They accepted the claim and said I would hear from them within two business. days. On May 12, the emailed and said, "We are already coordinating with our back office team in order to complete your claim. Please allow 2 more business days for us to work on your claim and we will get back to you until Tuesday, May 14." Wednesday night, May 15, I still had not heard back and emailed them asking for an update. I gave the names of nearby cities where there might be a repair center within 100 mile radius of my house. They called the next day and said they were going to elevate it to a supervisor who called the next day and said they were "having issues with the model number" and were working with their back office and would call me in two days. On May 20, they emailed back with the same story, "We are still coordinating this claim with our back office team and we will email or call you back for updates and resolution within 2 business days." May 22, I still hadn't heard back so I emailed again and asked if I could have the phone repaired locally and send them the repair bill. Their response is, "We apologize for the delay. We are still coordinating with our back office team to have the model number of your phone w/c is Moto G6 32GB Blk XT1925-6 added on our system to proceed with the claim." I don't know what a back office team is or why it's taking 14 days to enter a phone in their system. All I know is I am STILL WAITING!

Beware - these are not well made. The valve on the zero balloon was completely glued shut, so by the time we were able to open it enough to put helium in, there was no way to seal it back up enough to hold the air. I ended up having to stop by Party City on the way to the party to buy a second zero balloon, so it cost me more money and didn’t quite match the 3. Also, only 4 of the 5 confetti balloons held the helium, and began sinking within 2 hours. The only balloon that seemed to work well was the 3, however the next morning, that one started to leak as well. It’s possible I received just a bad batch, but it was very disappointing and we have never had issues like this with any balloons in the past.

I took a C++ class a couple of years ago and we used a similarly titled book by Gaddis. It was an excellent book. Very well written and easy to understand. Since then, I've picked classes based on the text book. This book is used in my CS I class and I love it. I tried taking Java last semester and was just lost. The book was absolutely horrible. No logic, no good examples or explanations. I could probably teach myself using books by Gaddis. In fact, I probably learned more reading the book than going to class. Yes, I actually READ the book, sometimes more than once for review. It's rare that I take a book like this to bed, but I do. My instructor didn't require the programming exercises at the end of each chapter, which I think was a HUGE disservice to us, but I do them on my own to help reinforce what I'm learning. One thing it lacks that I liked in the C++ book, is one big project that students complete as they progress through the book, applying the concepts they learn. But I can Google for project ideas online for extra practice. The companion myprogramminglab is a great idea, but the execution is kind of poor. The fill-in questions are annoying because it's difficult to guess exactly which word the test designer is looking for and you have to be exact. I found myself frustrated often. Multiple choice would be better if they're going to be that precise. It's unfortunate that Pearson doesn't respond to comments through the site. Overall, again, excellent book. I highly recommend it.
PowerA Charging Stand for PlayStation 4
PowerA Charging Stand for PlayStation 4
Going from a cord used for charging to this charging station has been revolutionary!

It's not as convenient as it could be simply because you cannot charge and use the controller at the same time like you can with a charging cable. If you have 2 controllers though, that shouldn't be an issue at all! I leave one controller on the charging station at all times (there's an intermediate 'setting' on the dock which lets you set the controller within the docking cradle, but not set it far enough down to initiate charging) while I use the other controller. With the amount of life that one controller gives, I can fully charge the other controller a few times over and just switch them out when the one I'm using gets low!

It's a basic thin, plastic base which feels cheap-ish, but that's negligible to the amount of use you get out of it! It prevents you from having to plug your wireless controller in to charge. It gets rid of the unsightly/annoying cord draped over your lap. It looks sleek while also being useful!

How-to: Set your Ps4 controller into one of the cradles. Push the controller down into the cradle until you hear/feel a solid 'click'. If you do it right, the controller's light bar will start pulsing a dim yellow/orange to let you know it's charging. When charging is complete, the light bar will no longer pulse.
To release: Push down on the controller again and you will hear/feel another click and will be able to lift the controller out of the station.

Pros:
Controller light bar will pulse a gentle yellow/orange while charging to let you know it's working
Can hold a controller without having to charge it (see above notes)
Looks good next to the Ps4!
Charges your controller within an hour or two and lets you get back to gaming quick!
There's a slight divot in each cradle that has an indication as to where the 'PS' button will go to make lining up easy
Has a notch on the bottom for the cord so it sits evenly on the table

Cons:
Relatively cheap material
Doesn't have an extra 'hook' for headphone storage

Ich wollte gesunden Biotee für die Kinder haben. Den habe ich wahrscheinlich bekommen. (da ich kein Labor bin, kann ich über mögliche Schadstoffe natürlich nichts sagen)

ABER er ist dermaßen SCHWACH im Geschmack!

Zum Vergleich: Mit nur 1 einzigen TeeBeutelchen herkömmlichen Bio Früchtetee von einem großen deutschen Discounter zaubert man 0,5 bis 0,75 Liter kräftigen Früchtetee.

Für ein vergleichbar kräftiges Ergebnis braucht man von diesem Tee einen Kaffeepott voll Früchtetee (die Tasse als Messbecher genommen, um die Menge zu verabschaulichen) Das übersteigt die Kapazitäten der meisten Teesiebe. Und wie gesagt, ich rede von einer kleinen Teekanne.

Fazit: Man kann ihn trinken, es schmeckt okay. Nachteil: hoher Verbrauch, schwacher Geschmack.

Many of the little silver guns broke really quick, lots of slots for the guns but barely any in the package.
There were barricades that connected which are great, but quite a few that did not so fell over quite a bit.
My son had a blast none the less, so it was a great gift.
However he was disappointed there werent many little guns for the slots. Lots of assortment of stop sides a such, wasnt really expecting.
The plastic is pretty much the same throughout, classic army men.

Would really recommend thinking of putting connecting barricades and barbwire for a more stable standing for impatient little ones!
