 Amazon.com: Colour the Small One: Music: Sia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
A lot of this is down to Sia's voice; a soft, intimate, languorous affair that has the unsettling effect of being simultaneously sad and seductive.
Sia begins the album by proclaiming "You don't know me/You can't hold me/I'll slip through your hands/I am one single grain of sand." However, by the end of the album you'll feel as if you know her better than herself, and in truth, you just might.
Sia's voice is almost surreal in its beauty and range--sometimes a light, airy, but melancholy and seemingly effortless expression, other times a piercing, forceful, fluctuating unique sound that seems to serve a cathartic purpose, and certainly demands attention.

 SIA Does About-Face on Mandatory Arbitration of Discrimination Claims
"SIA particularly supports the rule's recognition that its implementation represents a dramatic departure from the way firms and employees currently operate and that it will have an enormous impact on both firms and employees," wrote Stuart Kaswell, SIA general counsel.
The SIA supports the one-year delay to give firms time to create private agreements for dispute resolution--i.e., firms will still be able to keep employees in industry arbitration forums.
Last spring, the SIA wrote two letters to the NASDR in response to criticism of employment-related arbitration presented in a Feb. 3 letter from three members of Congress to SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt.

Sia (full name Sia Furler) hails from the famously laid-back Australian city of Adelaide.
However, the blonde, blue-eyed antipodean's big break came only after she followed in the footsteps of many other Aussie artists and hopped on a plane to the U.K. While in London, Sia landed a gig as a backup singer for the very popular and extremely hip English outfit Jamiroquai.
In mid-2001, Sia once again made a splash on the U.K. singles chart with the moody offering "Drink to Get Drunk," a track that would appear on her 2002 full-length debut, Healing Is Difficult.

 Lady Sia -- GBA -- Five Stars
Before I even mention Lady Sia, which is what this review is all about, I’d like to note that TDK is new to the gaming marketplace, and they’re definitely one of the publishers to keep an eye on.
Lady Sia is a perfect example of how TDK Mediactive can make a game that appeals to girls without excluding boys and doesn’t rely on a pink box to get the job done.
Throughout, there are nice little visual embellishments, such as spinning windmills, the way Lady Sia wobbles at the edge of a platform or pulls herself up with her sword, and various other animated touches that make the levels come to life.

For the longer term, the SIA, as part of its regular midyear update, predicted a compound annual growth rate of 10.4 percent through 2007, when the group says worldwide sales will reach a quarter of a trillion dollars.
The SIA and individual chipmakers have warned that progress in current semiconductor-manufacturing techniques, which focus on shrinking the size of transistors and packing more of them into chips, will eventually stop because of physical limitations.
The SIA, which has been warning of the industry's long-term challenges for some time, has already established the Focus Center Research Program, which combines the semiconductor research efforts of five universities.

 EETimes.com - Familiar drivers, new consumer systems will revive chip growth, says SIA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
During a press conference after the forecast was released, SIA officials dodged a final question about the difficulty in forecasting the business since a year ago the trade group had predicted 22% growth in 2001 vs. the 31.2% drop now expected.
The SIA's new U.S. industry consensus forecast now predicts that a slow-but-steady recovery will begin in the fourth quarter this year, followed by 6.3% growth to $149.5 billion in 2002 and a 21.1% increase in sales to $181.1 billion in 2003.
The SIA forecast also shows a major shift in global chip markets in the early half of this decade, with the Asia Pacific region becoming the world's largest semiconductor market as a direct result of the severe 2001 downturn (see regional forecast table in Nov. 7 story).

She's got one of those voices you've almost certainly heard, even if you didn't know her name, which is appropriate since a feeling of comfortable familiarity permeates her second album, Colour the Small One.
With their pleasant mélange of acoustic guitar, gentle beats, keening strings, and Sia's borderline incomprehensible drawl, the songs envelop like a well-loved flannel blanket.
Some of this emotion stems from tragic circumstances in Sia's own life, ranging from minor (nearly being thrown into the same cultural landfill as Eiffel 65 and Donna Lewis) to the vastly more serious (losing her first love to a car accident).
