The Data Liberation Front is an engineering team at Google whose singular goal is to make it easier for users to move their data in and out of Google products. We do this because we believe that you should be able to export any data that you create in (or import into) a product. We help and consult other engineering teams within Google on how to "liberate" their products.

The current blizzard conditions of snowing, blowing, ice, and sub zero wind chill has been raging since December eighth two thousand nine. The storm has caused school cancelations, road closures and massive chaos throughout West Michigan communities. The level of awareness and the ability to prepare for these circumstances has allowed us to be able to cope much better than we have in the past. We should alway remember to be prepared when travelling out in this weather no matter how long or short the distance. Must have items to have with you in your car during winter travel in no particular order:
Jumper cables: So you can help someone or help yourself with a jump.
Blankets: Keeping warm while waiting for a wrecker that could take hours is essential.
Cell phone: even if you have an old one that doesn't have a service plan you can still dial 911 for free.
Protein or Granola bars: because you have to eat:)
Flashlights: The LED style are very effective and can be seen for a long way.
Flairs: Can get the attention of passing vehicles and serve a warning to other passing motorists to steer clear of the area.
Extra set of: clothes, gloves, hats, and a scarf.
Communicate: Tell a friend or family member before you leave, and when you get to your destination.
Battling the common cold. Sadly most everyone I know is sick and tired from the flu or cold. The weather changes from warm and comfortable to freezing and wet. This as we say is "Michigan Weather", wait five minutes and it will change. Learning how to deal with the weather can have a direct impact on your health. I take daily vitamins as well as vitamin C packs with minerals. Wash my hands frequently, and try not to rub my eyes!
When I'm sick I double up on the C. Stock up on chicken noodle soup and keep the tea, lemon and honey flowing. Oh and get lots of rest, not sure how to do that yet but I'm trying!

I tend to watch a moderate amount of television and I'm disgusted at how many drug commercials are aired. Most of them pray on the weak and desperate, with the promise of feeling better. Drug commercials should be banned and doctors should be accountable for prescribing the proper medications.
