ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Bones Vent
Booth and Bones by <lj user="shadedcolor
I very recently got into Bones and I've been steadily (and rapidly) working my way through the seasons and just started season 6 today and I. DO. NOT. LIKE. HANNAH. Yeah sure, objectively I suppose she's a nice person, but I don't like her because she gets between my OTP:-( Every time I see her and Booth together I want to gag - Booth and Bones belong together and he has no RIGHT to fall in love with someone else, darn it! And Brennan's constant insistence that it would be irrational for her and Booth to ever be together BUGS me because they ARE compatible - they're made for each other and I miss the chemistry between them:-(

I just want them to go back to the way they were before:-( I mean, logically I can see why Booth moved on but he could at least have the courtesy to still be brooding over Bones and not be so darn happy with Hannah - I mean, am I alone in this?? Ugh:-( And now I have to work my way through a whole season in which there is the flipping WALL of Hannah between Booth and Brennan and it hurts:-( SHE is the mastodon in the room. Sigh;-(

Puppy Eyes of Doom
Hello all my new friends!! I see that everybody is doing welcome posts so here we go:

I want you each to tell me 4 interesting random facts about yourself:-) I'll start:

1) I have an incredibly long French surname (23 characters) and wherever I go it is a talking point - varsity, airports, you name it - people ALWAYS ask me how to pronounce it and where I'm from!
2) By July I will have visited 5 continents - Australia, North America, Asia, Europe and I live in Africa.
3) I am addicted to humus. Like seriously. No, it's not funny. I actually avoid buying it because I can't stop eating it and I will floor a tub within seconds:-P I swear it has some chemical in it that short circuits my brain....
4) My favourite drink is....water. Truly. How sad is that?

Now it's your turn!!!

You can take me as many times as you want, Bells...Collapse )
