1. The Women of Bletchley Park
During the Second World War, many intelligent people were hired to work at Bletchley Park in the United Kingdom, decoding the secret messages encrypted by Enigma machines.

Culture & Society - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 03:41:50
I've been concerned about helping people to bootstrap their lives for a while, primarily in getting from being a normal person to being someone who can achieve great things.

Education - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 03:41:04
I'm a huge fan of music at the best of times, yet there's something special to be noted about the soundtracks of movies.
Scores and popular soundtracks alike can instantly take you back into the memory of the movie you heard it in. They can also make or break a movie - a beautiful movie with a k...
5. UNICEF: Help the invisible children
Entertainment & Media - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 03:41:07
After a shock reminder that there are plenty of invisible children in the world, I wanted to do something to help them. But this isn't an easy task to achieve: How can I really help a child I don't know who lives in poverty on the other side of the world? This is the question. I want to make an a...
6. Best Books for Career Design
nonprofits - Thu, 18 Feb 2010 09:50:17
Most people leave school with little idea what they really want to do with life or how they're going to achieve it. It's a big problem, since life plans can't effectively be put in to place until you have some idea where you're going.
Also, too many people are stuck thinking that a job choice ne...

I just try to help. I write a bl...
13. Best Chilli Recipe
How-To & Education - Mon, 26 Apr 2010 19:25:26
I thought I'd share my favourite chilli recipe with you all. The reason I love it so much is that it's really easy and can be made in 5 minutes (when you've got all the ingredients handy). It's entirely vegan unless you choose to add garnishes or have the meat alternative. This means it's pretty ...

18. Agen, Aquitaine, France
travel-and-places - Mon, 26 Apr 2010 16:46:19
Agen today is a sleepy little town, nestled between hills and a river in the far East of Aquitaine. It's difficult to imagine that it used to be a bustling Roman trading centre, or at the heart of the 100 year war with England.
Despite this obvious historical significance, Agen is modest and fri...

parenting-and-kids - Thu, 01 Apr 2010 05:25:13
Sometimes even the best songs can be utterly transformed by a decent artist covering the track.

Here's a collection of some of the most astounding covers I've com...
22. Best Books for Money Tips
Music - Tue, 30 Mar 2010 11:58:54
Sadly, money management is not something taught in schools. This could be a really important reason why, on the whole, the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor. But, not for those of us reading tips from the best!
There are books available for all your money aspirations: Whether you want to be ...

healthy-living - Thu, 11 Mar 2010 17:37:38

27. Squidoo: How to be a good squidizen
books-poetry-writing - Tue, 27 Apr 2010 10:36:46
There's plenty of nice Squidoo lensmasters out there who try to be a part of this community and do the right thing. There's others who might think they're doing well, but are actually driving people away with harsh comments on forums and on lenses. So, in order to keep Squidoo a happy fun place t...
28. Top Tips for New Squidoo Lenses
squidoo-community - Mon, 22 Feb 2010 08:38:22

Some are very simple...
29. Terry Pratchett - Discworld
squidoo-community - Sun, 28 Feb 2010 10:45:34
I've been a Pratchett fan for a while now. His books are full of parodies and his infectious, silly humour. Reading the Discworld series is one of the most enjoyable ways you can pass time on your own. But to really understand, you'll have to read it for yourself!
Here's a quick run-down on the ...
30. Top 5 Sci-Fi Comedy Book Series
books-poetry-writing - Tue, 27 Apr 2010 10:26:22
If you're looking for something light and fun to read, you can't go past science fiction comedy. But what do you read? If you've never read any science fiction comedy before, it's hard to work out where to start.
Ideally, you want to find something that's part of a longer series, so you can enjo...
31. Can I become a Giant Squid in one month?
books-poetry-writing - Tue, 27 Apr 2010 10:11:04
My challenge for myself which I decided to go public with: Trying to write 50 quality lenses in order to qualify for Giant Squid status by the end of March 2010.
I worked out that I needed to write about two lenses per day in March in order to qualify. I had about 500 great ideas for lenses alre...
32. Brilliant Movie Musicals
squidoo-community - Wed, 07 Apr 2010 09:36:28
I love a good sing-along movie. In fact, I probably like them too much. If I'm watching a movie musical I know and love it's usually best to see it in the exclusive company of crazed enthusiasts or in the privacy of my own home.
So, I've put together this list of musicals that you can watch on D...

35. Best Books for Business Skills
books-poetry-writing - Tue, 27 Apr 2010 08:31:07
