34, has been working with kids in poverty since 1995 through her
organization, Pies Descalsos (Barefoot Foundation), in her native
Colombia, as well as Haiti and South Africa.Through her foundation,
more than 6,000 students receive nutritious meals, education and
psychological support services, ultimately benefiting 30,000 vulnerable

Beatles Magical Mystery Tour album. George wrote this song on August
1, 1967 in a house he rented in Los Angeles on a street named Blue
Jay Way. He was waiting for Derek Taylor when he came up with the
song, "There's a fog upon LA / And my friends have lost their
way". The house is located high in the Hollywood Hills overlooking
Sunset Boulevard, which affords panoramic views of Hollywood and
much of the Los Angeles Basin.
Below is the photo of the actual Hammond George played to write
the song. The organ remains in the house to this day. It is no longer

it in, it started smoking but it is an interesting artifact

who lined up at Apple stores around the world to switch to iPhone
4S this month, Steve Jobs' spirit is very much alive.
His friends and colleagues say Jobs had what's known as "reality
distortion field." Clarity of his vision often made the impossible
a reality. Thus was how Apple
was born and reborn with its passionate founder. He took Apple to
great heights before his untimely death on October 5th. Jobs who
loved music, had soul of a great musician. His vision connected
to masses and created a new culture; A new way of doing things.
He changed how we listen to music and consume it. He inspired engineers,
CEOs, new generations and old who use computers like empowering,
fashionable tools --iMac, iphone, to ipod -- at work and at play.
Like Edison and Ford, he genuinely touched the soul of our time.
An inspired life.
Schuster released his autobiography, Steve
Jobs, on October 24, 2011. Based on more than forty interviews
with Jobs conducted over two yearsas well as interviews with
more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors,
and colleaguesWalter Isaacson has written a riveting story
of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of
a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious
drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated
movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.
