The best and cheapest lavaliers!

I don't talk too much about products, but I need to mention these lavaliers I bought months ago from Giant Squid.
It was $30 plus shipping and I also feel I got quality lavaliers (compared to other brands I experimented with). The store owner is Darren Nemeth, you can contact him at

This is the cardioid lav I use with my Zoom H2 and also the Olympus DM-520 digital audio recorder that I place inside an eyeglass case (I've drilled a hole into the end of the eyeglass case so the audio cord can pass through).

Such a deal!

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was awarded Nobel Peace Prize this year!

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was awarded Nobel Prize this year!!!!

I was fortunate to record the President of the Republic of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf's speech at the University of Tampa commencement convocation on May 9, 2009 at the St. Pete Times Forum.

The first woman president on the continent of Africa, President Sirleaf was elected in November 2005. In 2006, Forbes magazine named her the 51st most powerful woman in the world.

In her address, Sirleaf told the Tampa graduates that they should not get discouraged in the current economy if they can’t acquire their ideal job. She suggested that they possibly travel and work in another land to help out the less fortunate.

Sirleaf then segued into discussing her own life and career, including her campaign to become president of Liberia.
