Follow The Sand To The Real Fracking Boom
By BFP Staff Tuesday, November 25, 2014

When it takes up to four million pounds of sand to frack a single well, it’s no wonder that demand is outpacing supply and frack sand producers are becoming the biggest behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the American oil and gas boom.
Demand is exploding for “frac sand”—a durable, high-purity quartz sand used to help produce petroleum fluids and prop up man-made fractures in shale rock formations through which oil and gas flows—turning this segment into the top driver of value in the shale revolution.

As it happened, Ali Khamenei, Benjamin Netanyahu, Vladimir Putin, and Recep Tayyip Erdogan were all walking in one of the UN’s corridors.
To show that he is just an ordinary human being and a humble man, Khamenei shouted, ‘hey Vladimir, Tayyip, Bibi, come over here! Why don’t we all sit down and chat about so many things we all have in common.’
Curious to hear what Ali has to say, they hesitantly start walking toward him, (he) who was already seated at a round table with a view of the East river.
Ali: How are you all doing, I hope you’re feeling well.More...
COMMUNITY ALERT: ARTURO SALVADOR FRIERI And FRIERI
By BFP Staff Saturday, November 22, 2014
By Jimmy Acosta
The aim of this publication is to alert the Colombian community of two Colombian citizens who aim only to take advantage of honest people, using indecent practices that undermine the integrity and dignity of the Colombian brothers.
We refer to Mr. Salvador Vicente Frieri Gallo and Arturo Rafel Frieri Gallo, whose"modus operandi” is based on approaching enterprising entrepreneurs with business organizational phase and reduced capital by offering ideas growth for the business through the provision of large sums of money and then become partners to profit from the earnings of the same.
Wield a huge amount of pressure for the business organization - is fully effective according to their demands - which provide capital. Once the business is finally structured and organized, with all permits, authorizations and strategies to follow, require repayment of obligations outside the agreement, exercising dishonest regardless of morals and good customs practices. Threats and coercion techniques not only with employers who have offered and given help, but members of these families, causing disunity in families due to stress generated and transmitted within the family niche, and yet, causing serious illness those members due to the stress they produce.
The Frieri lords take advantage of the economic needs and desires of overcoming serious people masquerading as “honest businessmen” for allegedly helping and in many cases saved from bankruptcy entrepreneurs. Furthermore, acting unscrupulously offering help to save a supposed economic crisis families.More...
The Fall Of The Would-Be Emperor

By Dr. Alon Ben-Meir
President Erdogan has recently come under intense criticism for his unwillingness to come to the aid of the beleaguered Syrian Kurds in the city of Kobani just across the Turkish border. Sadly, Erdogan’s behavior is not surprising as he has always pursued policies consistent with the image of himself as a great leader and his country as a regional hegemon and a global power.
Three Cheers for UK Politicians on Shale Gas
By BFP Staff Wednesday, November 19, 2014
By David Finlayson
So, after nearly 50 years of UK oil and gas production, the UK will get a sovereign wealth fund to benefit future generations in the North of England. But not based on the proven, possible and probable oil and gas reserves of the UK continental shelf as of today: this fund will be created from the revenues generated from future shale gas production.

Vitamin C: If It’s Good For Gorillas Why Not Us
By Dr. Gifford Jones Thursday, October 21, 2010
Are you headed for a heart attack because of “marginal scurvy”, a condition resulting from a lack of vitamin C? Moreover, if vitamin C is sound medicine for gorillas, why isn’t it good for us? And in the 16th century, why did the ship’s cat survive long sea voyages when its sailors died from scurvy?
Today, we know that sailors of old, lacking vitamin C, died of this preventable disease. A shortage of fresh fruit in their diet resulted in degeneration of blood vessels, hemorrhage and death.
Networked Devices Spread Your Photos, Music Around
By Jim Bray Thursday, December 16, 2010
Media servers are becoming popular in this age of wireless home networks, delivering audio and video content from a computer or the Internet to whatever device you may want to use, within reason.
I usually use such devices to stream music, because most of the videos I watch are on Blu-ray and no matter how much hype you hear about downloads taking over, there are still bandwidth and file compatibility issues. I admit reluctantly to accessing YouTube and its ilk for some casual viewing sometimes, but media servers are increasingly playing back music in other rooms of my house.
