Jim Cousins' Blog gets another mention in the Guardian

In an article titled "Falling through the net" the Guardian discusses MPs and blogging - or more accurately their lack of blogging and the fact the vacuum is being filled by proxy bloggers who may or may not be sympathetic to the MP they are proxy blogging for.

"'With the technology available, it's very, very easy for anybody to get online with a free weblog and to source all of the information they need to track their local MP,' says Ireland. The power of the blog can be illustrated by Ireland's blog dedicated to Tory MP Tim Yeo. Ireland's blog is the first entry in Google for the MP for Suffolk South, higher than the official profile on the Conservative Party site and the most likely place a prospective voter is likely to visit.

What's more, a number of bloggers have taken Ireland's suggestion. Now, MPs Jim Cousins, Sandra Gidley, Boris Johnson, Alan Milburn, Sarah Teather, Nick Raynsford and Lewis Mooney all have blogs dedicated to them and most are not friendly. The moral is: if you don't launch your own blog, someone might do it for you."
See the sidebar to the right for links to all the proxy blogs mentioned as the Guardian doesn't bother giving links for them as Chunter also points out. Luckily for Jim I'm one of the friendly ones. The offer in the profile still stands. Go on Jim - you know you want to.

In a somewhat related post it looks like Tim Yeo Ireland has come to the same conclusion - give it to them for free then they have no excuse not to take you up. If they do refuse they just look like the laziest luddites in the world. Wouldn't want one of those for my MP. ;)

See here for previous mention in the Guardian.

Before setting off in pursuit of poker stardom, first consider what you want to achieve, and then follow in the direction of small steps. Poker is a game of psychology more than any other, so playing with the right attitude is the key to perfect their skills. You should be well rested and ready to play - and if you're playing in a tournament, make sure that you have the right amount of time.
At first go to the game with ease. Be patient and work to achieve their goals. In the end you want to become a winning player, and it comes along with an analysis of their game, the opponents and the observation of how the great players refer victory.

Taking part in too many hands is a mistake made by many new online poker players. Playing every hand is a great temptation, but any experienced player will tell you that it can only create poker problems. Do not be surprised if you participate in one hand out of ten, matching the other nine. Poker is a game for patient players. Wait for a really strong poker hands such as high pairs or strong aces (ace-king or ace-queen), and do not be afraid to fold if you think that you lose. I immediately know it to improve their results. Then you can begin to add to his repertoire of new hands such as small pairs or 8-9 of the same suit - with whom you can go depending on the position.

Being on the button ("button") - in other words, if you're the last player executing the movement in the hand - you have the advantage of observing the movements of your texas holdem poker opponents. If you come, conquer and even penetrate, get information about what cards they can hold in your hand. Free no deposit bonus
