I used to think I'd find web services interesting, but, you know, after quite a few months I find that outside of work I just can't get excited. Ergo, we will not focus on web services anymore. Maybe Economics? I sure do spend a lot of time reading about that. OTOH, 3D graphics has always really interested me...

Blame it on the Cicadas - which went on to point out: Assuming yours is not a 2 Hummer family, than you are spending anywhere from $150 - $250 more per month on gasoline. THAT'S why retail numbers are a bit soft . . . Had the ICSC released that statement, they would scare the hell out of holders of retail stocks -- and clearly, this organization is much more worried about spin than truth . . .
Bokeh describes the out of focus quality of a camera lens. A point that is out of focus will normally be a soft, uniformly dense, circle. Different lens systems produce elipsis or hexagons and different distributions of light across the shape.

The power of retailing. Retailing isn't simply the final step at which goods are sold to consumers. Retailing is the stage where an economy elicits informationa about what consumers really want. Retailing stands at the heart of rational economic calculation.

Pointshop3D is a system for interactive shape and appearance editing of 3D point-sampled geometry. By generalizing conventional 2D pixel editors, it supports a great variety of different interaction techniques to alter shape and appearance of 3D point models, including cleaning, texturing, sculpting, carving, filtering, and resampling. One key ingredient of the framework is a novel concept for interactive point cloud parameterization allowing for distortion minimal and aliasing-free texture mapping. A second one is a dynamic, adaptive resampling method which builds upon a continuous reconstruction of the model surface and its attributes. These techniques allow to transfer the full functionality of 2D image editing operations to the irregular 3D point setting. Pointshop3D system reads, processes, and writes point-sampled models without intermediate tesselation. It is intended to complement existing low cost 3D scanners and point rendering pipelines for efficient 3D content creation.
Not sure I completely agree with this, but... Copenhagen Consensus is based on the aim to improve prioritization of limited means. The world is faced with a countless number of challenges such as diseases, environmental degradation, armed conflicts and financial instability. Copenhagen Consensus takes a new and critical-analytical approach to assessing the effects of international opportunities for solving the challenges.
