Nonetheless when we add more security the actual speed is much less. Improving the speed considering our size (US) is probably tougher than assumed.^0^1^^^0^0

    16146^7823^Vince DeCarolis^^^^2009-10-03 01:55:06^2009-10-03 01:55:06^Social media may be even more important to the small business than to anyone else. Marketing funds are limited in a small business. But anyone can build their business at no cost- just some hard work – by using social media tools.Here’s a simple example. The founders of Pizzeria Prima Strada in Victoria B.C. spent all of their capital opening this classic Neopolitan pizza restaurant. There wasn’t much left for traditional marketing. But through continued and combined use of the internet marketing tools – blogs, press releases, Facebook, Twitter etc. – they built up a following. Lines are out the door every night.^0^1^^^0^0

We will assist willing terminally ill patients in the US in experiencing many different ancient healing visual and auditory tele-medical procedures (from certain Asian and South American countries), that do not require touch, to help them live longer. When this research work is proven to be effective (if it is), then the results can be generalized to the entire global population, starting with us. This could save a lot of money expense on drugs in the terminally ill, and hopefully benefit others as well. The huge benefit will be the recording of the TelePresence of each patient.”^0^1^^^0^0
