Submission + - Neil Young Sings The Praises Of His New Digital Music Format ( 1

sperlingreich writes: "Singer-songwriter Neil Young has never been a fan of digital music. The rock legend despises the inferior audio quality of MP3s and CDs so much that he is launching Pono, a portable music player and audio platform with high fidelity files that promise to deliver studio quality sound. However, will Young's solution be able to challenge Apple's dominance in the marketplace?"

So Atheists are unwelcome. So much for that organization. Making belief in sky fairies a requirement for membership speaks a lot about Mason values and priorities.

Actually, Yes I do believe it speaks loud and clear about our values.

I understand enjoying the comradery and brotherhood of it (I'm an Eagle Scout myself) but what purpose does being a Freemason serve in your life and what do you enjoy most about it?

I am an Eagle Scout as well and a 30 yr Freemason (Past and current Master). Our main objective is not as you said to be more likely to do business with other Freemasons (though that does occur...don't you prefer to do business with people that you know as opposed to strangers?). Our objective is to help make good men even better. I am sure there are probably many men in your community that are masons that you might talk to for better information. We are an organization with secrets, not a secret organization. Dan

NASA TV had a video of this on this past weekend. The pics look like they came from the video, same angles and all. this is kind of sad but, what a great experiment they were. Hope one of them ends up at Wright-Patterson AFB Museum, I love to see one up close.

Really? I beg to differ. We in Ohio have taken cuts for the last 10 or more years, yet we are expected to do more with less and less. We provide everything that other government agencies don't want to provide. "Let's close down the jobs & family Services offices...we'll send them to the library. They have lots of staff to help our clients....." Yeah, right. I wish we had all of the resources that people "think" that we have.

Retirement means that when someone says "Have a nice day", you actually have a shot at it.
