Xbox, Xmas, Ex-Child Actor
This week's Lycos 50 top search terms article is presented in full on the Lycos 50 blog while we feature the 2008 Top Toys & Video Games list on our front page. See you next week and may we add, Happy Holidays - Cheers!
The kid who saw dead people has grabbed the paddles and given an electric jolt to his career. Haley Joel Osment is back, at #47, thanks to his Broadway debut in the play American Buffalo. Don’t get too cocky though, kid – you still lag behind the increasingly obsolete US Postal Service (45).
Thanksgiving, which has been getting major props in this column, but hasn’t been able to buy itself any street cred, is finally back, at #17. But alas, Turkey Day again takes a major back seat to Christmas, now tearing up the joint at #6.
Which brings us to Santa Claus, presently more popular than Beyoncé (41 and 42). She may be Sasha Fierce, but if she ain’t leaving a new Xbox under the tree, she’s playing second fiddle to the big guy.
Awkward segue mention of Xbox, which is registered at #24. Be sure to don the Kevlar when trying to pick one up on everyone’s favorite day of organized chaos – Black Friday (33).
If all you want for Christmas is a significant other, or at least a booty call or three, the dating website plentyoffish.com is now on the board at #50. Ah, young love.
The masses have spoken. And what they’ve said is the economy may not slow down the spending as much as expected this holiday season. At least not when it comes to video games and Holiday party dates. Carry on.

Uttaranchal / uttarakhand is a part of the Western Himalayan ranges starting from the Shivalik foothills to Greater Himalayas with Tibet as its northeastern border. In the northwestern corner of the state is Himachal Pradesh, while Haryana celebrates its union with the newly formed state with a gentle kiss. The state is surrounded by Uttar Pradesh from most of its western and southern boundary. Apart from the Terai region in the Shivalik foothills, the entire state of Uttaranchal is a part of the Himalayan ranges. At 7,817 m above sea level, Nanda Devi in the district of Chamoli is the highest point in the state. The region has many glaciers, passes, meadows, and trekking routes with several major rivers like the Ganga and Yamuna originating from here. A major part of this Himalayan state comes under rainforests and alpine forests that are home to some of the highly endangered wildlife species.

Thanks for supporting the idea of 360 degree feedback. I’ve seen it create division in senior teams when handled incorrectly and seen transformation happen when used elegantly. It’s all about the intention and skill of those who facilitate the process.
I believe that natural and organic sources of vitamins and minerals are the best in comparison of any other packaged and plastic products. Always try to grow the stuff you need at your home. It is not only going to be cheaper but it will be a lot more beneficial for your health and your loved ones
This is really innovative and a new idea, I like this concept and the way it is carried out in so light and cool manner. I concur with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your future updates.
