Clarke and Dawe: Lending Merry Go Round


The Grasshoper and the Ant

-attributed to Aesop

In a field one summer’s day a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its heart’s content.  An Ant walked by, grunting as he carried a plump kernel of corn.

“Where are you off to with that heavy thing?” asked the Grasshopper.

Without stopping, the Ant replied, “To our ant hill.  This is the third kernel I’ve delivered today.”

“Why not come and sing with me,” said the Grasshopper, “instead of working so hard?” “I am helping to store food for the winter,” said the Ant, “and think you should do the same.” 

“Why bother about winter?” said the Grasshopper; “we have plenty of food right now.” 


But the Ant went on its way and continued its work.

The weather soon turned cold.  All the food lying in the field was covered with a thick white blanket of snow that even the grasshopper could not dig through.  Soon the Grasshopper found itself dying of hunger.

He staggered to the ants’ hill and saw them handing out corn from the stores they had collected in the summer.

Movie to Watch This Week: Old Boy

This movie is one of my top ten favorites. It’s action packed from beginning to end, incredible story, and a shocking ending.

Writing a Business Plan

Now that its graduation time, I gotta to start making business plans for the ideas I have. Getting a 9-5 is my last option. I’ve written down many of them, and even bought domain names for many of them, but having a business plan is the next step. To those that are in the same position, I hope this helps.

Will Brazilian President Lula Squash the Nuclear Beef Between Iran and the West?

According to Pepe Escobar, there’s a good chance:

“Iran has all but agreed that Brazil should be the mediator between Tehran and the United Nations – rather than the axis of the US, Britain and France inside the UN Security Council, plus Germany – to finally settle the Iranian nuclear dossier. According to the Fars news agency, after his visit early this week to New York, Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, in a phone call with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, told him that Iran had agreed with the Brazilian proposal for a nuclear fuel swap deal for the Tehran research reactor, which produces medical isotopes for cancer treatment. The proposal will be discussed in detail when Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva visits Tehran by the end of next week.”
