I have more then six years experience as a self-learner and at SD Community College Continuing Education labs on mostly the Mac platform. I will mail a transcript of lab hours if requested, as well as references. Software used includes Photoshop and Quark as well as the titles listed below; I am also acquainted with CorelDraw, Lightwave, and Extreme 3d on the Win95/NT platform. I once exhibited several digital works at the World Trade Center in downtown San Diego. I have just finished a job with the US Census Bureau and a second semester of Freehand Drawing at SD City College. I feel highly motivated and believe I possess the design sense required of the job.

If it's legal, then the girls could have health checks, unions, benefits, anything any other worker gets, and it would be far better. PB: This isn't a very popular position in America, is it? JV: No and it's because of religion. Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers. It tells people to go out and stick their noses in other people's business. I live by the golden rule: Treat others as you'd want them to treat you. The religious right wants to tell people how to live. PB: So after all your reading and research, who do you think killed President Kennedy? JV: I believe the hired shooters could be from anywhere Europeans, Cubans. They're just hired guns. PB: Who hired the shooters? JV: I don't know if I want to get into this on your tape. I don't want people to think I`m some sort of erratic nut running the state of Minnesota. If you truly want to know, I believe we did. The military-industrial complex. I believe Kennedy was going to withdraw us from Vietnam and there were factions that didn't want that. PB: Let's say your life is over and you discover that you can return as anything you want. What would you come back as? JV: If I could be reincarnated as a fabric, I would like to come back as a 38 double-D bra. Petros wrote >Any real Christian would agree with > Ventura. Jesus did not set out to create "organized religion" as we > know it today. You don't know what you're talking about so shaddap. BAM Weak minds Jay Leno, host of the "Tonight Show," commenting on Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura's interview with Playboy magazine: "He said, and I quote, 'Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers.' Well, thank God professional wrestling isn't like that." What's so sacrosanct about religion that anyone who criticizes it is attacked so much? Ever notice that the attacks are all emotional and that they can't come up with any logical rebuttal to what Ventura said? A religion that can't stand up under the spotlight of critical scrutiny is not worth any regrets. Jesse spoke the truth: organized religion IS a sham and a crutch for the weak minded, as most thinking people will agree. Organized religion has one function: to allow devious individuals control people's minds and do their bidding. Ever notice that most of what the Religious Right stands for goes 180 degrees against the teachings of Christ? Religion is a personal choice that should not be foisted onto others, such as in organized public prayer, which the Religious Reich are so eager to promote despite Jesus' commandment against it. "Be not like the hypocrites who pray in public to be seen by men; instead go into your closet and pray in secret to the Father who is in secret." A friend asked me to correct her problem with a Mac Performa 640CD running System 7.5.3 and a Hewlett-Packard DeskWriter C printer's communicating. We rebuilt the desktop, ran Norton Disk Doctor, and many times tried the Chooser's "Port Juggler" in different configurations, but still get a "Printer not responding message". I should mention that the former owner hardwired (internalized) the printer cable to the CPU. **GraphicConverter 3.8 Adds AppleScript, Bug Fixes** -- Lemke Software has updated GraphicConverter to version 3.8, adding AppleScript support to the PowerPC version and numerous tweaks to its multipurpose tool for working with image files. (GraphicConverter ranked high in a recent TidBITS poll of image editing applications; see "Poll Results: They Come in Colors" in TidBITS-516_.) GraphicConverter's basic AppleScript support enables users to apply multiple modifications to files, such as resizing and changing the bit depth, thereby speeding up the production process. GraphicConverter 3.8 is a 1.9 MB download; registration for the shareware utility is $30 in Europe, $35 in the rest of the world.
