"I got more views in one hour than I got in a month." -Mariano
Paulo Ribeiro is a Brazilian entrepreneur, writer and avid reader. I have know him for a little over a year. In that time, he has become one of the most well-connected Brazilian bloggers; especially within the English-speaking blogging community.
Many economists believe that, despite the worldwide recession, Brazil, the 5th most populated country in the world, is thriving.
American money has been pouring into the Brazilian E-Commerce Market:
-Quinstreet is a publicly traded educational lead company out of the US. They opened an office in Sao Paulo, Brazil
-Descomplica is Brazilan SAT type education provider that Peter Thiel invested in.
In the past couple of years, showing off your Everyday carry (EDC) online has become quite popular on Pinterest, blogs, and Instagram (search #edc). Wikipedia defines it as ‘a small collection of tools, equipment and supplies that are carried on a daily basis to assist in tackling situations ranging from the mundane to the disastrous.’ I’m in no way a disaster preparedness type of guy but I have found certain tools to be very useful on a daily basis.
I prefer to keep it simple and minimal. The fewer things you carry, then the fewer things that you can lose or forget to bring with you. One tip is to carry the same items in the same pocket, day in and day out. For example, my cell phone is always in my left pocket and my keys are in my right pocket.
This is what I carry with me on a daily basis.
Hey Friends !

In last few days found a treasure, literally I feel that. I came across a completely new world which was unknown to me. Zenhabits.net by Leo, Severs.org by Derek, and Minimalists.com. These three gentlemen have changed my mindset. I bought two books (kindle versions) 1) Zen to done and 2) Essays on Minimalists. Both books are eye opener to me.
I have made few changes in my lifestyle in last three days.
1) Being in present :- I knew the concept via "the of power of now" but found new ideas to implement it. I read a lot of OSHO (Mystic) from osho.com. Leo babauta's concept of working on one task at a time is helping me. I am now avoiding multitasking. Thank you Leo.

I have collected below 10 quotes from Robert Greene's book, 48 Laws of Power.
Emphasis mine. I have collected these quotes, and will provide commentary on these quotes in the coming posts.
I was very reluctant to implement themes in SETT. The way I saw it, if we controlled the theme, we could really optimize it for things that people care about -- subscriptions, views, comments, etc. But time and time again, the one thing that was stopping new people from moving to SETT was that they wanted their blog to look unique. Fair enough.
For the past four months, my focus has been building out the theming system. I wasn't surprised that figuring out a theming language and adapting SETT to use it would take two months, but I was surprised that it took another two month to build a theme editor.
The real challenge was to build a theming system that would accomodate users of all skill levels. I wanted advanced users to have access to the full range of capabilities, including Bootstrap integration, LESS stylesheet compiling, and dynamically changing values. At the same time, I wanted very beginners to have a fighting chance at editing an existing theme to change just one thing or two. In the middle of those two, I wanted people with HTML and CSS, but no programming, experience to be able to design a good theme.
On top of all that, the editing experience must be good. No one wants to edit files on their computer and then upload them to see if they worked. Previews should be near instant, and it should be possible to edit multiple files at once online, just as we'd do with a standalone editor.

I live in a small town called Brighouse in England. I love it hear with its variation; towns, cities, countryside and of course history. It was May 2013 and i received a blurry photo on my phone. I don't have it to hand but it looked like the edge of a cliff. I called the friend (Richard) who sent it me and he said it was an abandon mine and that we should explore it. it wasn't too far from where we lived. Now before i continue i will tell you that me and some friends love urban exploration. It fascinates me and gives you a glimpse into what life might be like when people disappear. That and it makes for some fantastic photo opportunities.
So one evening i drove to the location where some friends where already waiting. Geared up in cloths i don't mind destroying, several led lights, camera and a flask of coffee. I didn't really know what to expect as i was pulling up to a small makeshift car park in some woods but what i really did fear was getting lost, after all it is a mine. It was already getting dark but that didn't matter, not where we was going. We walked along a trail in the woods to the mine. Seemed forever before my friend said "here we are". Looked around. Nothing. He pointed to the side of a hill no more than 10 meters away. Thats when i saw a slumped over sign. "Danger of Explosion" it said. A gap no bigger than a small window led to what was suppose to be a mine. Well time to get dirty.I slid down the wet and slimy muck. I was in.
Must say i was surprised when i slid down into the side of this hill. It was massive, an arched size tunnel about 7foot in hight but at least 15ft width. My lights wouldn't reach anything solid when i shined my light down this tunnel, yes it was long. I waited for the group to all get in then we did a light check and went over some rules. (1. No smoking or naked flames. 2. Watch your footing and move slowly 3. Stick together.) Part 1&2 where easy but it was clear that 3 was going to be hard. As we went in the size of the cavern started to shrink and the tunnels started to split in several directions. Which way to go? i looked back and tried to remember the entrance in case i got lost then turned to proceed along one tunnel.
