There are about online documents in this website. It is a very useful tool for research.
My country has recently experienced a historic event. On the 14 th of January 2011 thousands of people went to the streets protesting against the corruption and tyranny of president, his family and police cruelthy that caused the death of at least 78 people during earlier protests.
A series of protests started after the imotation of a young fruit seller: Mohammed Bouazizi. Police forces tried to repress the protests by firing live bullets but that did not work out it contributed to the anger and rebellion of the people. It is said that snipers belonging to the ex president's mafia were present among the police forces and fired in specific places like the head, the heart, the neck... Our police force is not trained that well so I guess this theory is true. The police beats people ok! But they wouldn't kill them. They fire in the air, randomly perhaps but not directly at people. (that's the law)
Later that evening, the president fled the country.
After 23 years of dictatorship and injustice and fear we have won our freedom. The press and media, which were supressed , the internet which was incredibly censored (we didn't even have access to Youtube, vimeo, metacafe etc... and thousands of other websites) were freed!
People are talking about politics for the first time ever and opposition is finally allowed to be active. All political prisoners were freed and many exiled have returned to Tunisia.
In a couple of months WE THE PEOPLE OF TUNISIA will be able to choose our president, our government.
Of course, there are still some issues right now. The old party that was governing the country and which is famous for corruption still exists and many of its members are part of the current temporary government. Poeple are still protesting against that.
I personally don't mind the current government it's temporary and I think that not all those in it are bad people. We wait and see what they have to offer and if we don't like it then back to the streets we will return!

-7917/8312 days we have been living.
What have we achieved? What projects did we really finish? What dreams are we living today? Time is passing by, the system is after us and we are passive, numb like nothing matters and nothing is of any importance. Wars,revolutions,deaths and births and we are static wasting more times, more days, more seconds...tick tack tick tack...
-In 3653 I want so many to happen, so many to be true and I want to feel that the last ten years of my life were not a waste of time.
I give up for frustration and for fear of never doing anything right. I want to be a better lover,to lose weight, eat healthier, do more activities with my Jimmy,read books, write books, make music, find a spiritual path, do yoga as it is supposed to be done, have kids,be organized, learn.,write on this blog on a regular basis... But what have I really done this year?
Another year have passed and I what have I done?

"It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom." said Aristotle. Indeed he is right!
One the the goals Jamie and I are working on are waking up early. The reasons for this are numerous: breathing the fresh morning air, watching the sunrise,being at peace away from all the noise and having more time in the morning... you can read the zenhabits article "10Benefits of Rising Early and how to do it" and 9 reasons to wake up early for more :).
Now, in order to wake up early and most importantly 'in shape' we must understand how the sleep mechanisms work! I have provided you with a list of wonderful resources ! Enjoy!
Here is a quiet interesting test you can take ;)
