News of the Day: The Perfection of Wisdom

"Form is emptiness, and the very emptiness is form...there is no form, no sensation, no perception, no formation, no consciousness; no eye, no ear, no tongue, no body, no mind..." -- Prajna Paramita, The Heart [of the Perfection of Wisdom] Sutra" (PDX Yogini). This portrait is a water color, ink, photograph art piece taken of stone Buddha statue outside of Great Vow Zen Monastery.

States with the most millionaires
The number of millionaires in America shrank in 2009, but these states still rank as the richest. California rules in total number but ranks low per capita. No New York - Top 20 billionaires - How to make a million - Tax refund scams

A soldier who lost his vision can read a poster thanks to high-tech glasses that connect to his tongue. How? - Blind musician a savant - Sight-impaired skier - Cure for blindness?

"Business Buddha" Buffett is 16th Best CEOs ever
No longer the "richest man in the world" (a title that now belongs to Mexican mogul Carlos Slim), Warren Buffett is ranked 16th on a new list of the 20 Best American CEOs of all time. (And he impersonates Axl Rose in a new TV commercial).

The ranking was compiled by Condé Nast's Portfolio in consultation with a panel of business-school professors. They were asked to "consider each CEO's record of creating or destroying value, innovation, and management skills or lack thereof." Kevin Maney and Liz Gunnison write in their overview that "Warren Buffett may not be much of an innovator, but he is a great philosopher -- the business Buddha. We think that counts." More>>
