Gas boycott? What next?
BY ALEXANDER COOLIDGE | ACOOLIDGE@ENQUIRER.COM

Gasoline prices and oil companiesâ™ profits are soaring this spring. Now come the other rituals associated with high prices at the pump.

Members of Congress and state attorneys general are vowing scrutiny of Big Oil and gasoline retailers. And consumers are boycotting.

Both have become rites of passage in recent years as consumers fume over gas prices. Neither, historically, has amounted to much change.

âœIf you agree (which I canâ™t see why you wouldnâ™t) resend this to all your contact list. With it saying, â˜Donâ™t pump gas on May 15th,â™â the message reads.

Subject: Improving on Brainstorming
Security: Public
I will write more about Six thinking Hats & Lateral Thinking tools later in this blog. These tools are used to refine the ideas generated during the brainstorming session and it helps to select the ones for implementation.


Improving on Brainstorming

Brainstorming technique can further be improved upon by utilizing it with other creative tools. Brainstorming is best when it is used to generate ideas, but the process can be improved upon when brain storming is combined with other creative tools such as:
  • Multi-voting
  • Lotus Blossom
  • Six Thinking Hats®
  • Lateral Thinking ®

    Security: Public
    Fill up your car today? Guess you didn't get the memo. The e-mail memo, that is, sent by some online vigilante who apparently hoped the gas-boycott forwards would spread like wildfire.

    Please forward - The "gas-out memo" illustrates the

    Jorita Bishop has no idea where the gas boycott e-mail came
    from. All she knows is she is tired of pouring so much money
    into her tank while hearing about record profits for oil
    companies. So, last week she and her 9-year-old daughter
    drew up signs asking fellow Portlanders not to buy gas today
    and plastered them to her car.

    Subject: Iraq veteran wins blog prize as US military cuts web access
    Security: Public
    Yesterday the defence department went further and announced it was blocking access "worldwide" to 13 communal websites, including YouTube and MySpace from military computers and networks. General BB Bell said the move was to protect operations from the drain on computer capacity caused by soldiers downloading videos on these sites.

    The paradox of Buzzell's victory is that it quickly follows the revelation that the Pentagon has introduced new rules restricting blogs among soldiers, fuelling speculation that live and unadorned combat writing from the field such as Buzzell's may be the last of its kind.

    Subject: Rescue Internet Radio
    Security: Public
    Online music is in danger. After intense lobbying by giant music labels, the Copyright Royalty Board dramatically increased the rates webcasters must pay to stream online music. The change is so severe that it could force most independent and noncommercial Internet radio off the Web. Musicians, webcasters and listeners have joined forces to reverse the CRB decision.

    The bipartisan "Internet Radio Equality Act of 2007" was introduced in the House by Reps. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) and Donald Manzullo (R-Ill.) and in the Senate by Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Sam Brownback (R-Kan.). The legislation would reverse the CRB decision in favor of a balanced structure that supports artists without putting webcasters out of business.

    We need to stop the bad rules before they go into effect on July 15. Sign this petition to urge your member of Congress to pass the Internet Radio Equality Act.
