TheAShift Calendar Competition started in 2003 with an aim to discover fresh creators. Enter the 8th competition for Shift, a Japanese-based online mag.
It pushes the boundaries between online and off line using a "calendar" as its medium. Entries are invited from all over the world and selected works will be distributed throughout the world in the format of a physical calendar.
The deadline for this competition is on August 20th, 2010.
This is a guide to using logical fallacies in debate. And when I say "using," I don’t mean just pointing them out when opposing debaters commit them — I mean deliberately committing them oneself, or finding ways to transform fallacious arguments into perfectly good ones.

(ANSA) - Rome, March 11 - House Speaker Gianfranco Fini on Thursday threw his weight behind an initiative launched by an Italian tech magazine to award the Internet with this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
"We’re finally realizing that the Internet is not just a computer network. It’s a web of human relationships - of men and women from every latitude - who connect across the greatest communications platform man has ever seen," he told parliament during an address on web freedom.
Fini was joined by some 160 MPS in signing Wired Italia’s appeal to nominate the Internet for the world’s most distinguished civic service accolade.
"Meeting with each other has always been the best antidote to violence and hate. It gives all of us the chance to plant the seeds for peace"."A Nobel peace prize for the Internet would be an award for everyone," he concluded.
Wired Italia launched its appeal last November in a video posted to its website (wired.it) entitled the Internet for Peace Manifesto.
Its nomination was officially accepted by the Norwegian Nobel Committee last month, according to Wired.
Early supporters for the drive included 2003 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Iranian rights activist Shirin Ebadi, fashionAmogul Giorgio Armani and cancer research pioneer and former Italian health minister Umberto Veronesi.
Governments in Uganda, Mozambique and Paraguay have also backed the Web’s Nobel bid.
Wired Italia is one of two international editions of Wired Magazine, a San Francisco based monthly on trends in technology, politics and culture.

Best player in the game? Kobe. Is it undisputed? Probably not, but there isn’t any denying Kobe is the most accomplished player in the league.
You hear a lot of chatter in the league who is better? Kobe or LeBron? LeBron or Kobe. LeBron is the reigning NBA MVP. The Nike muppets commercials (which I love) also play up the rivalry angle and the Kobe-LeBron matchup is the main reason a lot of people will be tuning in to ABC on Christmas Day.
When you talk about these two great players, you have to look at the ultimate barometer, — championships. And when it comes to championships, there isn’t a rivalry.
MNP ran into Sean Bono of Art Battles and got a chance to talk about what is really going on- like we have done before, we’ll start off with a brief documentary about the movement and then move on to the interview.
Can you please describe what an art battle is?
Art Battles is both an event for artistic entertainment as well as a movement for social change. Its a peaceful conflict built out of the framework of capitalism and democracy. Artists are competing with eachother t0 sell their work, win prizes and to do that by winning over the audience with popular vote.
How have you seen the audience of these events respond to the creation process?
The audience responds really well, that is and has been my biggest sense of accomplishment with ArtBattles.. Seeing people treat art with the passion of sport and seeing painters connecting with a huge crowd is pretty wild. It really makes me think wow, this is getting BIG.
What has been your favorite battle and why?
I think my favorite battle was our Kong Zilla battle between Leif and Dre. The tension was in the room with two huge canvasses spotlight on the stage of Le Poisson Rouge. The crowd filled the room bubbling with anticipation DJ JUs Ske played a killer set. I will never forget Leif paints his whole canvas black and in doing so he shoots a wad of paint off his brush through the air and onto the shoulder of Dre the whole place went nuts and they both painted amazing pieces. In the end the crowd decided Leif the victor.
I think that the sky is the limit with Live art. I boastful joke by saying that there is a whole wing in the met dedicated to what we are doing that know one new was there before.
How do you see this movement evolving over the next say ten years?
As for in the next ten years where to and what music like I said the sky is the limit and with live art andf ArtBattles there are no boundaries on where it can exist or styles that can be expressed inside of it.
