My Review of To Idiots Who Spread Disease by EltonCamp
New
In France shaking hands at every opportunity used to be the norm.
I knew of someone who worked in a very formal office environment in Paris where the boss insisted on a full handshake from all his staff when starting and finishing work - including when they left for the lunch break!
Not surprisingly everyone always seemed to have a cold.
I'm told the American high five is much less likely to transmit germs, though - but you can't be too careful.
Another interesting write from you, Elton.

My Review of The Koyal Group Info Mag -Forskere Gr Kvantesprin by kettinneali
Not many of us here speak Danish - try this....

The Koyal Group Info Mag sors Do Kvantesprin

In another breakthrough in the weird, wonky world of quantum physics, scientists teleport data an unprecedented distance using a new technique - parched us closer to the emergence of a "quantum internet."
We are one step closer to creating the Ansible communicator in "End Game" warp drive imagines Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre and a "Star Trek" -style transporter.
Or we can at least keep thinking that while scientists do the hard, incremental physics required to keep us dream about the kind of future progress. This time the progress comes from a research out of the laboratory of Professor Nicolas Gisin of the physics department at the University of Geneva.
The team achieved teleportation of quantum state of a photon - in this case, it is known as the photon's polarization - a crystal-encased photon more than 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) away. The distance breaks the previous record of 6 km (3.7 miles) set 10 years ago by the same team using the method. This marks the latest success in a series of experiments in the group, led by physicist Flix Bussieres, has implemented over the last decade in an attempt to better understand quantum data transfer with ever newer technology.
The results obtained in March was published in the journal Nature Photonics on 21 September.
In this particular experiment, the researchers saved a photon in a crystal, mainly to create a solid-state memory. They sent another photon of a different wavelength 25km away through the optical fiber, after which they had to a third photon. Since the first two photons were entangled - a quantum property means the particles could talk to each other across an infinite distance - the interaction sent data to the image stored in the memory bank where the team was able to get to it.
Still with me?
The team uses pool balls to help explain what they are doing.

My Review of Ezra Mar by AmandaOlsonLoves
Real gut wrenching honesty that leaves a tear in the eye.
Fine writing from the heart like this takes true courage and I know you'll feel lighter for it.
Please do not devalue your ability (as per your Author Note) - this is most certainly spotlight material.

My Review of Elliott and Associates - Tips for den verdensbero by angelcain

Here are six tips to avoid becoming an emergency:

1. Tell how much you want to be in 24 months and use the revenue goals to develop your game plan. Why 24 months? Because if you are going to survive for two years while others die, you need to keep your eyes on the code and the current results of your efforts. It makes no sense to waste your time on a five-year plan, for example, since the latter years may not matter if your short-term efforts fail.

2. Choose who you want to serve. How will you generate your revenue? Select customers who have the potential to deliver growth you want and be specific in your selection. Look for discrete groups of people who you feel would value you provide. I always direct people to go for 'quick and easy' customers since survival depends on how fast you ramp up sales. You can not afford a six month selling cycle in a 24-month game plan.

3. Determine how you plan to compete and win by answering the killer question: "Why should I buy from you and not your competitor?" This is where most companies choke. You must be clear on how you are different from your competition. If you can not answer the question, you will be judged as essentially the same as any other and will be invisible to your customers you are aiming. The only note is the requirement that will differentiate your business from cattle: "We are the only one who ..."

4. Focus on the critical few, not the many possible. You do not have unlimited bandwidth and resources to do all this. Choose three things that you think will help you execute your game plan ahead and do them quickly. Many entrepreneurs fail because they are completely captivated by the possibilities and try to achieve too much. Keep your to-do list short and get things done.

5. Cut the crap. The game is as much about stopping things as it is about starting things. You can not afford to carry on activities not directly related to executing the game plan. Take an inventory of all the tasks you have on the go. Create a cut list of all the things you are doing to be stopped, and a hold list of things you should keep doing that strong game plan contributors.

6. Plan Run. Their words with the game plan - it is not carved in stone. Be open to adjusting it based on what you discover and learn through code. No plan ever turn out the way you intended; there are too many unpredictable variables in play. Plan, do, learn, adjust, perform, learn, adjust planning model that works in a volatile world.

My Review of Dipawali by shar1968
This type of celebration can be a great leveller and enable people to forget their own troubles, for a while at least.
I rather wish the noise from the fireworks would stop at midnight though, as sometimes you can have too much of a good thing.

Thanks for that well crafted trip back in time, Elton.
Our meat these days has turned into a sanitised plastic wrapped package that drives people to forget where it came from in the first place.

My Review of My Incredible India by SohailSyed
Had me jumping backwards and forwards in and out of wiki with some of your references but then India's vastness can certainly be overwhelming, predominantly for its measure of contrasts.
There is much that's incredible and much that urgently requires change.

My Review of Death Does Your Lips Bleed by LittleRedDeath18
Appreciate what you've attempted here, but I also feel certain Poe would approve of the notion that it's much easier to express emotions using the modern language of now rather than trying to play 19th century time warp.
Your own experiences are where the real treasure of inspiration lies.
Keep writing, as much and as often as you can.

My Review of Romance-Another Visit by odinroark
I admit I am always envious of couples who appear to have found a love that endures for life which seems so rarely the case nowadays.
Perhaps their good fortune equates to how hard they can work together at keeping romance alive.

My Review of Advertisement or Warning? by EltonCamp
All those veins popping out like tram lines don't do it for me I'm glad to say.
How anyone can find shape like that attractive is a mystery I just can't fathom.
And they tell me it's expensive and very time consuming to achieve that sort of appearance too.
Why on earth do they bother?
Good one Elton.

Be hopeful. There are many who rise above a challenging environment to make a success of their lives.
If you ditched the rhyme and just let your feelings dictate how you write I'm certain you'd find it a liberating experience.

My Review of The World Ends Here by seraph1420
You're right - the only real treasure in this life is to be found between our ears.
In poetry, less means more, which is why I think you can edit and hone this down a tad.
For instance, one set of cold ice caps is more than enough.
If you want your writing to improve try to avoid cliche like 'golden dunes' look for more original word combos.
All just MHO of course.

Good dramatic finish to your thoughts here.
It's hard to stay positive when there's so much despair all around us.
But focus on the good things in life you must - education is the way out of the mess.
You hit the spot more than once - well done.

Yet somehow I don't feel I should be heading for my hideout in the hills just yet.
Of course, the moon has a great influence on writers too, so we may expect some quirky activity here at WN.
