The Silent Evolution

400 sculptures underwater: "Located in the National Marine Park of Isla Mujeres, Cancun and Punta Nizuc, the environmentally friendly reef -- each of the sculptures is made from specialized materials used to promote coral life -- was constructed with the cooperation of marine park officials and the Cancun Nautical Assn. in an effort to promote the recovery of nearby natural reefs. The hope is to give visitors an alternative to the Cancun Marine Park, one of the most visited stretches of water in the world, with more than 750,000 visitors each year."

Facebook friends! - Employer link in profile fix.

Facebook friends! - Employer link in profile fix.: "I finally figured this out. By default, facebook doesn't search for the employer, even if there is an existing facebook presence, so it adds a generic blank page for the employer with a 'like' button.

Please click 'like' at if you can appreciate this!"
