The Importance of Breakfast

Breakfast is the first meal of the day for the majorities around the globe. I have read studies that prove eating breakfast assists in a higher performance at school and/or work. It fills your body with fuel to get through the day successfully. And it's been proven that breakfast fuel keeps people thinner.

My Interview with Ajay Ohri

What prompted you take a career in science, and what has been the reason you stuck to it, and been a sucess in it



I was doing mathematics for fun at a very young age when my friends were interested in sports, cars and movies. When I finished my master, I was approached by one of the professors to pursue a PhD program.

In a landmark announcement, it seems that Mr. Schwartz may indeed get his wish, and with it, a historical decision that could break the age-old shackles that bound businesses to traditional media and distribution channels in order to satisfy full disclosure.



The SEC has announced that it will recognize corporate Web sites and blogs as channels for…

Computer science is, at its core, an attempt to replicate the processing,… Continue
