Supercharge Your Google Reader & Read Your Feeds In Style With FeedSquares (Chrome Extension)

To read updates on the Blogger pages I am following, I use Google Reader. If you are unfamiliar with Reader, it is Google’s service that lets us read any Atom and RSS feed online or offline. Every since its main release in September 2007, it has been tried out many Google users and is now quite popular.
Although I am happy with the convenience that Reader provides (the ability to read all our Atom plus RSS reads on a single dashboard) I feel that Reader’s interface could be revamped and made more visually appealing. One tool that achieves this is FeedSquares.

A Designer’s Guide To Effective Proposals And Invoices

By Cameron Chapman

Because of the potential for variations in the different aspects of a web design project, creating a proposal or invoice for such a project can be trickier than that of another industry like accounting or legal services. If your proposal isn’t created carefully, it can lead to misunderstandings and unhappy clients (not to mention the grief it can cause you). The same is true for invoices: if it’s not clear what they’re paying for, clients can delay making payments or dispute charges.

There are two main factors to keep in mind when preparing a proposal or invoice: First, you’re likely dealing with people who are not yet your clients; and second, you’re dealing with clients who you (probably) hope will bring you repeat business. This article will offer a number of tips, based on those two principles, to help designers creative effective proposals and invoices.

Last week while I was on the behance.net website, I stumbled upon some cool photographs/sketches by this artist called Ben Heine. He actually calls these beautiful works Pencil VS Camera!. I found them to be so interesting that I wanted to share them with all of you. Although there are only 19 in his collection so far, they are definitely worth showcasing. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

60 Plain Movie Posters with White Background


Movie posters are advertisements, made to entice the viewer to the movie theatre or to pick up a rental or purchasable DVD. Some posters we look at use words along with images to entice the potential viewer and some use the actors more than the story to sell the movie.

In recent years, movie posters with a white background becomes a trend. Many people pointed such posters as boring and unexciting, but there are also some that feels they capture more attentions by focusing on just the actors/actresses. What do you think?

Prohibido y ya

Por Juan Gelman

Dentro de Israel y fuera de Israel. Dentro: los artículos de un proyecto de ley presentado a fines de abril en la Knesset, o Parlamento israelí, establecen la clausura o la imposibilidad de registro de las ONG locales “sospechosas de proporcionar información o estar involucradas en procesos contra oficiales o comandantes por violaciones del derecho humanitario internacional o por crímenes de guerra” (www.jnews.org.uk, 29410). Es la segunda ley que, con esos fines, se discute en la Knesset. El grupo ultranacionalista Im Tirtzu –Segunda Revolución Sionista–, por su parte, ha desatado una campaña contra estas ONG porque pretenden que esos crímenes sean juzgados fuera de Israel, ya que sus tribunales no procesan a los culpables. Otra muestra de la democracia israelí.
