CALLING ALL MOTHERS OF INVENTION


The Times is running an IP-related competition. The aim is to find “mothers of invention” – mothers or primary care-givers who have had an idea for an invention that would make life easier for parents. The winner will have the fees for her patent application paid by The Times and a patent attorney will be paid to draft her application.

…but is she the cat’s mother?

The IPKat is glad to see that unsuccessful entrants to the competition won’t have their potential patents jeopardised – The Times undertakes to keep all entries confidential and to destroy them once the competition is over.

More mothers of invention here and here

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
