“We are committed to protecting people’s legal rights and helping them understand the complexities of the legal system,” said Fitch. “We will fight for their freedom and be compassionate with their situation.”

Some cool background check images:

A Cheerful and Friendly Neighborhood Gun Store

Image by elycefeliz…
The United States has the largest number of guns in private hands of any country in the world with 60 million people owning a combined arsenal of over 200 million firearms.

The US constitution, which was written in 1787, enshrines the people’s right to keep and bear arms in its Second Amendment. Amending the Constitution to prohibit guns is rarely discussed as many Americans view the right to bear arms as an important civil liberty.

Instead, the issue is whether or not it is lawful to impose stricter controls on gun usage. Proposed gun control legislation has concerned child-proof locks, background checks on gun purchasers, the outlawing of some types of assault weapons and, most recently, the creation of a nationwide database of ballistic fingerprints in order to track the movement of the nation’s guns.

American opinion is divided between those who insist on the universal right to bear arms and those who advocate stricter controls. The influential firearms lobby, headed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), believes gun ownership to be a personal and moral right and dismisses the link between gun ownership and high gun violence with its slogan ‘Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.’

Advocates of firearm control argue that the Second Amendment is anachronistic belonging to the long-gone days of the frontier. They point to the high levels of gun-related murder and violent crime in the US to stress the need for reform.

Today is March 30th, I only have 49 more days!

Wow, I just counted that and I’m awestruck – I honestly don’t know what to say about my 365. In so many ways I feel accomplished with what I’ve done and in so many ways I feel I’ve neglected the purpose of my 365. I think the whole design of a three six five is to realize that no matter what there isn’t enough time for anything. Everytime I suggest a photographer doing a three six five they respond with something along the lines of; "I’m busy with school and work and would never have time for it" or "I’ll start is January first!". To be quite frank and blunt there’s never going to be enough time in the world for what you want to do. What I think a three six five project has shown me more than anything else is that life is always going to be full of events and you’re always going to feel like your busy but when it comes down to it the things that are important to you will show through. If photography meant something to you then you’ll make time for it and not excuses- you’ll try to do it even if it is nearly impossible. My three six five has changed not only me as a person but my mind set on everything: today I went to a park and took my shirt off and took pictures of myself in 30 degree weather (granted I was out in -30 in my parka and -5 shirtless) but it’s something a year ago I would have thought was crazy. I find myself talking about cameras and equipment and anything artistic related all the time- whether I’m active or not on flickr I’m always on it going though all my contact’s photos. I’ve learned so much about f/stops, cameras, adobe programs, and my interest in art has made me happy. I know it sounds completely cliche to say but I could probably have counted the times I felt completely content and that everything was alright before my 365, and now I’m going to bed feeling like everything is alright. I mean it’s not like my life is perfect but I just have hope and knowledge that everything is going to be alright. It’s the most difficult and obscure thing to explain but I hope one day that if you haven’t found that content- you will completely understand what I’m talking about and you too, will feel like everything is alright in the world.

Other news; New photos below/before here are of my old friend Madison, she used to be with me everyday at school but I’ve switched into a college now so I don’t see some of my old friends anymore and it was fun to shoot with her. She’s a complete natural in front of the camera and we totally went to my abandoned gas station at night and took flash photos! I absolutely hate flash (Some of you may want to shoot me now after saying that but it’s in all honesty). Everytime I ever used flash in my life it’s drowned out someone’s skin tone or made weird shadows and such but when I took those photos it gave it a different look and I guess that’s what I look for now days. I love experimenting and trying new things and flash definitely suited the gas station in making it look rustic and old.

Monday I got interviewed to work at LifeTouch Studios and I’m stoked about whether I get the job or not; I won’t know til Friday when they finish my background check. :) It will be so much fun to be able to take photos as a job and get paid for it while gaining experience. The manager was really good and walking around everyone was so enthusiastic (Well- they work with kids all day, I think it gets into them. :-) ). When I got interviewed it was extremely easy! I could talk about photography for hours and hours until someone’s ears fell off and I’m always excited to tell my stories about how I fell into nettles and got covered in itches and Becca & I dressing up as military and going through the woods. I know it’s such a terrible thing to say but I don’t think I’ll be a full time photographer- I want something more reliable but it’s so tempting to be one when photography makes me this happy. Hopefully I’ll get the job so I can start funding for my Mark II. I think I’ll keep track on here how close I am to getting it. :)


"Whoa! You’re coloring a lot Eric?!"
Yes, I started coloring my own images a few weeks ago when I took photos of Michelle and I fell in love with it. I never knew how much a single or double dose of color could impact and image and after much messing around I think adding colors is something I’m going to continue to do. I really want to stress how important playing around with everything you do in photography is; without having messed around and gone out on a limb to do stuff I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere. I mean a year ago I would have saw myself as crazy going out in 0 degree weather but now I’m like "yay! It’s not negative out!" and it’s just changed so much. :-)

Finally I want to thank anyone who’s read all of this because I guess well it means a lot that someone would spend that much time being interested in what I’m doing. I have a few people I want to thank for everything they’ve ever done;

Anna Szczekutowicz – I know you mostly post film not but everything I think I’ve done I’ve learned from seeing your work and learning the flares. God, I took Photography I and Photography II and never learned that a high f/stop will create bokeh and I honestly took a few hours reading through all of your blog sites trying to find how you made such great backgrounds in your photos and after I found it I was forever changed. I now own a 50mm f/1.4 lens and I don’t think I’ve really ever taken it off my camera in the last year- it’s so incredibly amazing. Thank you so much for being such an influence in my life!

MGM Photography – Graham, I’m not sure exactly how to word what I want to say but I think I’ll try. I really love all of your work and I still remember all of your old videos! I listen to Tight Pants Body Rolls every now and again and it reminds me of your old photography. I really miss you posting everyday and getting to see a more country side view of the world. You really taught me how to look past other people’s views and care about what I like in my photos. Thank you so much for starting photography and continuing it! You continue to inspire as you post your photographs.

Anna Gay – Wow Anna, you’ve come a long way with your photography and I’m proud to call you one of my major influences! You have such spirit and you really helped my emotionally with staying positive! You always post such bright colorful images and I’m stuck in awe in all the colors and personality in them. You show so much in your photographs that I can’t even imagine creating such amazing photos! I hope to one day have as much commitment to flickr and my photography as you do, you’re truly inspiring. Thank you for everything. :-)

InsideEveryHeartbeat – I really don’t think I would have made it though this project without you, well I mean gotten this far without you. Your photos have always been so elegant and the colors so subtle in a way that they blast emotion. You inspire me on a daily basis with your comments and great advice. I’m really glad we became friends and we started talking, I think you really helped my change throughout this project too because with out collab and with everything we’ve discussed together I feel like I’ve grown as a person and can relate more to my photographs. I used to think that my emotions were more intangible and that my photos just showed my concepts but you helped me see that my photos are direct products of how I feel and they show who I am as a person. You really really deserve a lot and I’m excited to meet you in person this summer. Thank you so much for being there and supporting me throughout my project, it means the world to me.

Now that I’m done writing all those yearbook like thanks’ I think I’ll head off to bed. I had a wonderful night and I really need to be getting more sleep these days. Thank you all for your support and I wish you all a wonderful night!

104/365: Claritin. I have never been allergic to anything in my life, but suddenly I do believe I have come down w/serious allergies. Watery eye, runny nose, sore throat, cough, the whole works. I decided to give Claritin a try w/mixed results so far.

The most notable thing about Claritin: You practically have to get a complete background check before they’ll sell it to you. No prescription necessary, but photo ID, current address, and probably other things certainly are. It has pseudophedrine, which is a component of methamphetamine, so I understand trying to control its purchase, but I still felt criminal even though I was just trying to stop my eyes watering!

You are in the Wikipedia section of Yahoo! Answers.

Your question is about the Wikia, Inc. family of websites.

Jimmy Wales, the “sole founder” of Wikipedia and “the founder” of Wikia, Inc. tells us that Wikia is a completely separate organization, unrelated to Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation. It says so right on his User page on Wikipedia. In bold letters, no less.

Therefore, your question is entirely out of place here, and you should be bothering one of the PAID STAFF members of Wikia, Inc. with your problem, not the volunteers working hard here on Yahoo! Answers.

Oh, look — I’ve found the staff of Wikia for you. Feel free to interrupt them, even though they appear to be working so hard:

Background checks for beginners

Background checks for beginners

Article by John Yadeski

Are you curious on just how people know so much about other people? Are you in need of knowing pertinent information about other people? Other people like tenants, cleaning crew, applicants for your business and the sitter you are eyeing for the kids and even for that one that you met and been dating online. This world is becoming unsafe by the minute, so there are so much more precautions we have to take. Background checks are not confined for businesses anymore, they should be used by just about everyone who interacts with anyone.

There is not so much operational expense on this procedure like there used to. The traditional background checks that takes up so much time, effort and money are now obsolete. It is not welcome nowadays that one will be driving all the way to different institutions then, falling in line, requesting for records and then waiting for it all. There are now two ways to get background checks, one is to hire a professional agency that has licensed databases that can search through criminal records, court records and all other records, credit history and others. This is more costly than doing it on your own. Another way is do it yourself background checks through the Internet.

The Internet has provided a way on giving us the convenience of checking people’s backgrounds even in your office or on your own homes. Only a few vital information is needed to perform online searches. These includes the full names, first name and last name, then birth date, and if Social Security Number is available, as well as the city and state to narrow down the search. A number of records will be provided for you, like previous addresses. But if you are interested in more in-depth records like, driving history, employment records or criminal records then some websites can still provide such but most are with minimal fees.

Some tips are also given to those who are new to online background checking. It is advised that you should ask some friends that have used such websites; they can provide you with some useful advice. You can also read reviews about certain websites that offer background check so that you would know which one is highly recommended by companies. Another one that will make your background check more effective is by comparing the results across an array of websites, this will make information more accurate.

Now that you have been introduced to online background checks, you can now start clicking away to make sure that the people you have around you does not pose any danger to you, your properties and your loved ones. This will even help you to build the credibility of those who are applying for a position in your business. Eventually, you will get used to checking the backgrounds online; you get more experience and end up with using the best website.

Start with free online background check today, and feel more secure with the people around you and the people you would be working with in the future.

Video Rating: 5 / 5 Provides Advice on Criminal Background Checks Provides Advice on Criminal Background Checks

Mount Kisco, NY (PRWEB) September 9, 2005

According to, one of the most utilized types of background checks is the criminal background investigation. All businesses handle some type of sensitive information of some degree. Retail businesses want to be sure prospective employees are clean from theft charges to reduce the instance of employee theft. Businesses or non-profits dealing with children and/or seniors are legally obligated to know the backgrounds of their employees.

Employers should be careful to limit the information that they need based on the responsibilities of the specific job function. For example, when hiring an employee that will handle cash transactions, employers will need to know if the candidate has had any prior convictions regarding theft. It is also mandatory that the types of background investigations to be performed are clearly outlined in any pre-employment literature. With the increasing concern about privacy, it is in the employer’s best interest to be upfront and honest about any inquiry of this nature. also explains that the implementation of criminal background checks can greatly reduce the financial loss of a company by weeding out those who have criminal convictions. Another instance where criminal background checks can be useful is when an employee will be dealing with the public sector. In order to limit the likelihood of negligence lawsuits, employers should consider criminal background checks as a standard pre-employment screening tool.

I was watching the trailer for Rocky 4 on youtube. Theres a scene in there I have never seen what do you think

Question by RI? Z#????h ? !: I was watching the trailer for Rocky 4 on youtube. Theres a scene in there I have never seen what do you think

At 1:06 of the trailer, if you are familiar with the movie you’ll notice it is not in the movie. Also, where can I see the outtakes or read about them at least? And why do they say Drago’s had one professional fight and one death when the match was a non-pro fight according to “It is the general consensus of the boxing experts that Apollo Creed would have beaten Ivan Drago if Creed was in his prime. Ivan Drago’s victory over Creed was only a 2 round exhibition and did not count toward either fighter’s professional record.”?

Best answer:

Answer by Boris
First of all the Rocky series are my favorite movies ever. Know for the answers, in my opinion

1) It was a deleted scene. I guess they didn’t think it was good enough.
2) This is a movie, so technically, they were all not real fights.
3) Wikipedia sucks. Half the stuff on there is false, because anyone can update entries. I failed a paper in my class because of it.
