[http://www.cheapwowgold.co.uk wow gold]Years ago a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast. He constantly
 
 
advertised for hired hands. Most people were reluctant to work on farms along the Atlantic. They dreaded the awful storms
 
 
that raged across the Atlantic, wreaking havoc on the buildings and crops. As the farmer interviewed applicants for the job,
 
 
he received a steady stream of refusals. Finally, a short, thin man, well past middle age, approached the farmer. "Are you a
 
 
good farmhand?" the farmer asked him. "Well, I can sleep when the wind blows," answered the little man. Although puzzled by
 
 
this answer, the farmer, desperate for help, hired him. The little man worked well around the farm, busy from dawn to dusk,
 
 
and the farmer felt satisfied with the man's work [http://www.winwin.com.cn wow gold]. Then one night the
 
 
wind howled loudly in from offshore. Jumping out of bed, the farmer grabbed a lantern and rushed next door to the hired
 
 
hand's sleeping quarters. He shook the little man and yelled, "Get up! A storm is coming! Tie things down before they blow
 
 
away!" The little man rolled over in bed and said firmly, "No sir. I told you, I can sleep when the wind blows." Enraged by
 
 
the response, the farmer was tempted to fire him on the spot. Instead, he hurried outside to prepare for the storm. To his
 
 
amazement, he discovered that all of the haystacks had been covered with tarpaulins. The cows were in the barn, the chickens
 
 
were in the coops, and the doors were barred. The shutters were tightly secured. Everything was tied down. Nothing could blow
 
 
away[http://www.wowgoldworld.com wow gold]The farmer then understood what his hired hand meant, so he
 
 
returned to his bed to also sleep while the wind blew. MORAL: When you're prepared, spiritually, mentally, and physically,
 
 
you have nothing to fear. Can you sleep when the wind blows through your life? The hired hand in the story was able to sleep
 
 
because he had secured the farm against the storm.

  4. Describe, link to, and analyze examples of the phenomena the book describes
    • The purpose is not to “make the case” for the book or find “gotcha” counter examples. What we are trying to do is provide a real research tool, annotated bibliography, and platform for collaborative learning. Examples and counter-examples should be selected and described with that purpose in mind.
  5. Demonstrate and discover what is valuable in a learning platform
    • Through separate pages devoted to ideas and experiments of what can be done with an online book to make it a learning platform, we hope to expand the range of uses to which this Wiki can be available.
