How can Facebook know if we are happy or not? This is something that I questioned , but the key is a simple indicator that Facebook implemented in the state bar that
says: What are you thinking about? .
With this method, each word that users write is analyzed. For example: enjoying , great , terrible , stressing are key words. Facebook has first experimented with United States'population in english ; obtaining very interesting results and realizing that people is generally happier in holidays. Facebook is thinking of expanding these experiments in other languages and countries as well.
Would you consider this measuring technique as valid? Would you trust on these results?

If you think it is insane to sleep in separate beds when you are married; read the following article.....
Twin beds or separate rooms could save your marriage if your spouse's snoring or tossing and turning is keeping you awake.
"Bedtime troubles send three in 10 couples to separate rooms, according to a poll by the National Sleep Foundation, a nonprofit agency. About a quarter of people with partners and 10 percent of singles said sleep problems left them too tired for sex."

Your Bed or Mine?
Although some couples worry that sleeping in twin beds or having separate rooms will hurt their intimacy with one another, many sleep experts believe that sleeping apart when there are sleep problem issues can save a marriage and increase intimacy.
"British sleep researchers say the secret of a happy marriage may be separate beds -- or even separate bedrooms."

Venezuela is facing a very contradictory political problem. Some Venezuelans think that the government is trying to hide important information.The president Hugo Chavez decided to close nearly 240 T.V. and radio stations in Venezuela. "Prochavists" think that media has being using information to attack the government and misinform the society. Therefore, some T.V. and radio programs should be closedown.
Do you agree that Venezuela´s government is threatening the free expression right? or Do you think that Venezuela´s government is doing well by closing this "bad" media?.
