It would be great if we worked for Apple or wow classic gold for sale Volkswagen. Their products generate conversations because they are legitimately worth talking about they're beautifully designed, innovative and easy to love. They are, to use Seth Godin's classic metaphor, a few purple cows among a vast pasture of Jerseys. And, of course, the social web loves purple cows.
Issue 1, mostly an annoyance: input lag in the aiming direction. If you turn just before hitting a jelly, you fly towards the direction you had before turning. In other words, your current direction is tracked with a delay (server lag etc) rather than the direction you have on your client when you hit the jelly.
This band has a real mix of backgrounds. Some members have a very strong world music background, others are more classical, and there are some who only know punk rock music, so the arrangements reflect all that. In the beginning some musicians looked down on us, but now we have a sort of extended family in Montreal and guests from the best.

This thesis aims to assess how Mumbai's middle classes are responding to water shortage and environmental change through domestic rainwater harvesting. Rainwater harvesting is mandatory in newly constructed buildings and retrofits are becoming increasingly popular as the municipality promotes water saving initiatives. The responsibility for securing water resources in Mumbai's middle class households has thus been shifted onto the residents themselves at the same time as they strive to secure and improve their lifestyles. This research draws on fieldwork in Mumbai from 2009 to 2011 to explore how rainwater harvesting is being governed, assembled and practiced by the rapidly growing but under researched middle classes. A socio technical framework is used to analyse the findings and this thesis draws three main conclusions: Firstly, housing is being repositioned as a water supplier, and thus a site for governing services, promoting middle class responses to shortage and allowing the municipality to roll back provision. Secondly, the domestication of water supplies through rainwater harvesting can accelerate the uptake of other environmental technologies within residential buildings by creating apertures in the socio technical transition. Thirdly, rainwater harvesting facilitates the performance of middle class lifestyles by securing constant water supplies but servants can distance residents from resource use and influence uptake and effectiveness of these decentralised environmental services. Therefore, if these complexities are acknowledged, the domestication of water infrastructure through rainwater harvesting has the potential to open up Mumbai's homes to become more sustainable.
