A year ago, Microsoft launched Windows Phone 7 with considerable fanfare about how its new mobile OS was the only player in the market that was truly different from the iPhone and Apple-inspired rivals like Google Android.
Instead of a screen full of tiny icons, Windows Phone offered a simplified interface based on so-called Live Tiles–blocks of GUI real estate that feed real-time information from apps directly to the home screen.
So it’s not surprising that the company is now prepared to take a different tack in marketing Windows Phones.Represent manufacturers of Wholesale Tile decoration For Floor processing machinery

Federal environmental regulators have joined an investigation into drinking water supplies tainted by elevated levels of a chemical used to make plastic products.
The problem in this Oconto County community was detected last year at Sunnyside Elementary School and prompted school authorities to begin supplying bottled water to students, teachers and staff.
But tests this summer showed that the same contaminant was turning up in private homeowner wells, leading investigators to question whether the situation was more widespread.
Although officials say there is no health hazard to Chase residents, a chemical commonly known as DEHP has been detected at the school and elsewhere at more than six times the maximum level permitted by federal law.
What is most perplexing to investigators is that they can find no nearby factory, landfill or other operation that might represent a source.

Then Musa’s home was a prison in downtown Kabul. Our meeting marks the first time the Christian convert, 46, has met with a reporter to tell his story since gaining freedom and [...]
