ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Puffy Eyes

I just looked sexy this morning, right?
I have a slightly swollen corner of my eye, courtesy of my sinuses. It is improving with compresses, but yeah, me lay still LONG ENOUGH for it to really do much good? Yeah, right. Instead, I'm taking 3x a day dose of Tylenol :D

Hey, it's actually one of the suggestions. I also drop in some Visine/Clear Eyes as well. It's helping to keep the eye hydrated (and helps with the itchiness, because it ONLY itches where the lashes rub my eye. Awesome, right?
