So if you didn't know, I've been working for KOTRA for the past month to make this happen.  Whew that was a lot of work.

"KOTRA, Caterpillar Sign an MOU on Partnership The Korea Trade Investment Promotion Agency, or KOTRA and Caterpillar, the world's largest manufacturer of construction equipment signed a memorandum of understanding to forge a partnership for parts and components supplies.
KOTRA officials say the deal will allow more business opportunities for qualified Korean suppliers.
The two parties agreed to step up cooperation to develop business relationships at the 2010 Global Partnering Chicago hosted by KOTRA Chicago.
In the two-day conference, over 40 Korean supplier companies in areas such as powertrain, automotive parts and industrial equipment are set to hold one-on-one meetings with global manufacturers including Caterpillar, Navistar, Cummins and Honda for potential deals."

Startup Advice: Inside Tips From Expert Entrepreneurs


The First $1 Billion Dollar Home in Mumbai


The world's first $1 billion home, a 27-story tower in Mumbai, built for India's richest man, Mukesh Ambani, is complete.
Time details some of the amenities:
It contains a health club with a gym and dance studio, at least one swimming pool, a ballroom, guestrooms, a variety of lounges and a 50-seater cinema. There are three helicopter pads on the roof and a car park for 160 vehicles on the ground floors. It's obviously quite a job keeping all this running smoothly, so the house, if you can call it that, also boasts a staff of 600. And all this for just Ambani, his wife and their three children to enjoy.
It has "at least one swimming pool"? Incredible.
So who is Ambani? Managing director of the petrochemical company Reliance Industries. By the way, 50 percent of the population of Mumbai earns less than $135 each month.

7 ways to get the best sleep ever


7 ways to get the best sleep ever

By Leslie Barrie, Health.com
August 17, 2010 8:10 a.m. EDT

Chronic, long-term insufficient sleep ups your odds of diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease, even weight gain.
  • Lack of shut-eye increases odds of diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease, weight gain
  • Check labels on your favorite midday drinks because energy-boosting benefits can hurt sleep
  • Some foods may help sleep, like whole-wheat-pasta dish, that combines protein and tryptophan

(Health.com) -- You've done all the obvious stuff -- cut out late-night caffeine, made sure your bedroom is dark and cozy, avoided scary movies or struggling with your to-do list right before bed. So why are you still tossing and turning?
"Certain habits you're unaware of could be sabotaging your sleep," says Kristen L. Knutson, Ph.D., assistant professor and sleep specialist at the University of Chicago's Department of Medicine.
And, as you may know, lack of shut-eye doesn't just leave you foggy the next day: Chronic, long-term insufficient sleep ups your odds of diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease, even weight gain. So what to do? Try these unexpected tweaks, and wake up feeling incredibly well-rested.
Step 1: Halt your afternoon habit
It's a no-brainer that drinking coffee or tea right before you hit the sack won't do you any sleep favors. But you also need to watch your afternoon drinks, says Joan Salge Blake, RD, a clinical associate professor at Boston University.
Love your 4 p.m. peach tea? It's got caffeine, and so do some flavored waters and even orange sodas, Blake warns. Check the labels on your favorite midday drinks -- any that boast energy-boosting benefits are likely culprits. Then, if possible, stop sipping them by 2 p.m., so there's time for their effects to wear off. Naturally, coffee drinks pack a real wallop, so stay away from them after lunch.

Step 2: Choose sleep superfoods
While it's important to avoid a big, heavy meal right before bed (a full stomach will disturb your sleep), some foods may actually help you snooze, Blake says.
If you've had a few nights of restless sleep, make a light whole-wheat-pasta dish with fresh vegetables, a little diced chicken breast, tomato sauce, and a sprinkle of Parmesan for dinner. This meal contains a snooze-friendly combination of protein and tryptophan, an amino acid that converts to sleep-promoting serotonin in the body.
If your stomach's growling late at night, try a small bowl of cottage cheese with banana slices, another dish that serves up tryptophan. Other combos of healthy carbs and protein, such as milk and graham crackers or yogurt sprinkled with cereal, will also do the trick.

Step 3: Sip wine sooner
Even though a nightcap may help you relax and fall asleep faster, it'll make the second half of your sleep cycle restless and unsatisfying. Alcohol decreases deep sleep and increases arousals from sleep, says Dr. John E. Brown, an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Maryland.
If you like a glass of wine in the evening, have it with dinner -- around 6 p.m. rather than 11-- and drink in moderation, so it'll wear off by the time you lie down.
Step 4: Take an early soak
Like to unwind in the tub before you snooze? Surprisingly, a hot bath might make it harder for you to drift off: Doing anything that raises your body temperature too close to bedtime may actually hinder you from falling asleep, because your body needs to cool to a certain temperature in order to reach a sound slumber, says J. Todd Arnedt, Ph.D., director of the University of Michigan Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program.
That doesn't mean you can't soak after a rough day-- when you get home from work, not right before turning in.

Step 5: Stretch for sleep
You probably already know that exercising at night can disrupt sleep. (Brown recommends doing any intense workouts at least six hours before you slip between the sheets.) But getting in a little gentle, restorative yoga before you hit the sack can help put your mind at ease, steady your breath, and reduce muscle tension without revving up your heart.
Try this restful Reclined Butterfly pose from Tanya Boulton, managing teacher at Pure Yoga East in New York City: Lie on your back with the soles of your feet together and your knees bent and dropping toward the floor. Place your arms, palms up, by your sides, keeping your shoulders back and your chest open. Close your eyes and inhale through your nose while slowly counting to four, then exhale while counting back down to one. Continue for 10 minutes, or as long as it takes you to feel fully relaxed.

Step 6: Set the mood for slumber
Keeping your room dark while you sleep is a great start, but bringing the lights down before bed is also important. "Bright light too close to bedtime can make it hard to fall asleep," Arnedt says. That's because dimness signals the biological clock that it's time to wind down, while bright light says "daytime!" Swap out überbright bedroom bulbs for low-watt ones, or install a dimmer switch and keep it low. Like to read in bed? Do it in the lowest light that's still comfortable.

Step 7: Ban your BlackBerry
Need to send out one last e-mail before you "officially" turn in? Not so fast. Typing in bed can wind you up, so when you do unplug, it will be harder to fall asleep, Knutson says. "It's possible that even the vibration of a BlackBerry could disturb sleep if a person is cued to hear or respond to it," she says.
For tech-free zzz's, disconnect an hour before bed, turn your smartphone off, and put any gadgets on an out-of-reach dresser or in another room so you won't be able to grab it if you get the late-night urge. Also, invest in a real alarm clock (using your cell will only give you another excuse to keep it close)-- and get ready to wake up feeling so refreshed that you won't even need to press snooze.

Greetings from Seoul, Korea


Hi everyone!

Sorry I've been so busy since my last update.  I suppose that's a good thing right?  Let me update you!  I'm currently writing this post from Seoul, South Korea on a business trip.  Nearly 1 month ago I attended a Overseas Korean Trading School and won a free trip to Korea!!  For one week I was able to tour the beautiful motherland and network from Koreans from all over the world.  Now that I have friends in South America, Europe, China, Australia, and Africa.. it might be a good idea to invest in some skype credits!!  There is something beautiful about having friends from all around the world and being able to use Korean as a median to communicate with each other.  It has opened my eyes to the cultural identity that I've been missing in my life. 

My Korean has never been better but I know I still have lots to learn.  During this trip, I have realized that my ability to speak English fluently can give me a huge edge if I am to ever pursue any careers here in Korea. 

I have lots to think about while I'm here but when I get back to the states, I hope that I'll have a clearer picture of where I want to be and where I know I will go.  Life is moving extremely fast right now and I'm just trying to keep up..  I'll update more later.

Poll: John Wall vs Evan Turner?


Let's talk NCAA basketball!  Yes the NBA Draft is coming very soon and there are two players who stand out in this year's draft.  Both John Wall of Kentucky and Evan Turner of Ohio State. 

Lebron likes Wall.  Kobe prefers Turner.  Oh my this is going to be a debate for the decades. 

Personally I like Evan Turner a lot better.  Not because I own EvanTurner.org but I just think he's the better athlete for the NBA.  Evan is long and creates matchup problems with smaller players with his mid-range game. 

Check out this Highlight video I made of Evan Turner!  Watch in 720P please!!!  Rate, Comment, and Subscribe if you liked it =)

Saw A Fireball in the Sky


I saw a fireball in the sky the other day.  It wasn't like anything I've ever seen.  Such a phenomenon in the sky would have been reported earlier, right?  Astrology has always intrigued me at a young age and I really wish the world had more answers for all the space activity occurring at the moment.  I have reason to believe that after Obama extended a budget boost for NASA, the government is convinced that other forms of life DO exist.  You can read more about Obama's NASA Plan here

New Age of Intelligence by Randy Lee


Random thoughts on Innovation:

Back in the 90's intelligence was measured through IQ tests and critical analyzations.  It used to be about how much you know and how fast you can learn it.  Now fast forward 20 years and you'll see that our IQ is concentrated on one question:  How fast can you google?  Yes in the advent of technology, Google is replacing every textbook out there.

We have saved millions of trees only to cut them down anyways and build more houses than we really need (Partially due to cheap supply and the abundant amount of space not needed for tree harvesting).

No longer are we relying on the US Postal Service as much as we used to.  (Thus forcing the Govt. to reevaluate the structure of the business model).  

Media is slowly breaking down into our own independent channels.
A new study showed that 65% of Americans rely on the internet for their news.  Flashback 10 years ago when having AOL News was merely an alternative to the ever-so reliable newspaper.  Where are they now?  Overshadowed and washed up- that's where.   The Tribune Company has dwindled while Time-Warner AOL plummeted to an all-time low, forcing their historical merger to cut ties and head in different directions.  

We really need to be smart about our approach.  Innovation is indeed a fine asset but what's the point of taking 3 steps forward if it's only going to set you 5 steps back?  

Is this fast pace of technology hurting us rather than improving?  Well that's a debate we can have 10 years from now.

My recommendations for picking a hosting company.

1. 24 Hour Customer Support

Trust me, if you visit a hosting companies website and they DO NOT OFFER 24 hours support, FORGET IT!
They might offer you the biggest, cheapest prices you could ever dream of, if they don’t offer support when you need it, your wasting your time and money.

2. Business Phone Number and Valid Mailing Address

Hosting companies are not always what they seem, a lot of hosting companies are really affiliates. They offer hosting packages from other companies and add their own mark-up on top.
What this means is that you could be buying your hosting services from the 16 year old next door!
Ring them, make sure its a real company, ask obvious questions, can you visit their office if needs be? Do they have a valid mailing address, can you send them checks rather than paying online?

3. Automatic Daily Backup’s

This is a must, don’t fool yourself in thinking your hosting account is never going to break. IT WILL and when it does you need to be prepared.
If your hosting company DOESNT OFFER daily backups, ditch them and quickly!
A good hosting company will also offer you help in retrieving lost data, make sure you ask them if they will help you with this JUST INCASE you need it.

4. Unlimited Everything!

Most of the big, professional hosting companies can offered to offer their customers more that’s why you should always look for unlimited everything!
This is what i look for;
  • Unlimited Web Storage Unlimited Data Transfer
    Host Unlimited Domains on 1 Account
    Unlimited E-mail Accounts
    Unlimited MySQL Databases

5 . Email Restrictions

This has to be number 3 for its also very import. MOST hosting company limit your email activity without you knowing. What this means if you send 50 or more emails in 1 hour the rest WILL NOT get delivered.
They get instantly deleted and you might never have known!
CHECK with your hosting provider BEFORE you buy what their hourly email restrictions are! Any less than 200 for a small website isn’t worth buying.

6. Admin Control Options – CPANEL not PLESK or anything else!

Make Sure you get an admin control panel with your hosting account, IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
I wouldn’t recommended anything BUT cpanel. Why?
IT costs the hosting company money for you to use, its very well supported, has built in website analytics and allows instant setup of popular services such as wordpress, joomla, phpbb etc.

7. Linux Hosting NOT Windows

Unless your familiar with website hosting and/or your an ASP programmer, DONT go for windows hosting.
Its a night mere for anyone getting started, most software applications you will work with online are PHP based software which work BEST on linux. Examples, wordpress, Joomla, phpBB, Vbu;iten etc etc.. ALL PHP Applications.

8. Money Back Guarantee

ALL GOOD hosting companies OFFER a money back guarantee.
If your thinking of trying a hosting company that doesn’t, STOP before you get ripped off. They should at least offer a 30 day refund policy incase what they say they offer isn’t actually what you get.

9. SSL certificates

Make sure that the hosting company CAN provide an SSL certificate for your hosting INCASE you need it. It doesn’t mean your going to need it right away but the more you work online some things like SSL can be useful.

10. Free Site Migration

what this basically means is the hosting company will help people who are having problems with this existing hosting company MOVE.
This is a very positive sign that the company is geared towards HELPING YOU with your website rather than just taking your money!

Where can you find a quality website hosting company?
