PermalinkWhy you should know (and love) Craig Venter
It has been almost two years after the fact. Artificial life created in the lab. Craig Venter is pioneering a whole new field of engineering new life forms. He hopes to create one so we won't have to depend on dirty fossil fuels.



And if Venter has his way, the human race will be vegan by the middle of this century...

"It takes 10 kilograms of grain to produce one kilogram of beef, 15 liters of water to get one kilogram of beef, and those cows produce a lot of methane," another potent greenhouse gas, Venter observed. "Why not get rid of the cows?" The replacement: meat grown in a test tube from microbes thanks to synthetic biology.

Business Phone Service is ideal for small business and entrepreneurs. It gives a professional image and make sure that you don't miss a single call. Few months back, I decided to buy Hosted pbx from Telcan. You can get more information here: Business Phone Service

I believe all small business should have business phone service. If you are one or two employee company or in business where all your staff is on the road, then you don't really need a business line. Just get a Toll Free number and it will work on top of your staff personal cell phones. When they receive a call, it will indicate that it is a business call on their call display so they can answer it professionally. All your staff can have their own professional voicemail system. You can monitor how many calls are answered and missed. I have been usingbusiness phone service from telcan. Check them out at: Check out Check out Business Phone Service
