Monday Blog Bites

Hello readers,  I hope your Easter/Passover was a brilliant event filled with food, family and fun!

This weekend was witness to great running progress and a car break-in resulting in the loss of my Panasonic Lumix LX3. Both occurred on the same day – talk about the thrill of victory and agony of defeat mashed into one day. All is now well; driver side window replaced, Panasonic Lumix LX5 is arriving tomorrow and I still own ‘The Loop” at Kelly Drive.

A running buddy shared news of a new Nike Women’s Half Marathon scheduled for the Spring of 2013 in Washington, DC. Yes! Springtime in Washington, DC under new management with the Nike Women’s Half Marathon where finishers receive a Tiffany pendent – what could be more perfect than that? Sign up here to receive more details about the inaugural race.

It was disturbing to watch a video where a white citizen journalist was able to obtain the voting ballot of Attorney General Eric Holder during the recent primary election in Washington, DC.  It is one thing to level nebulous allegations of Diebold voter fraud and completely another when evidence is produced of actual voter fraud occurring during election day.

 Poor bunny didn’t last long at chez Tania…

Mmmm..Happy Easter! #Hershey

How was your weekend? Hopefully your car remained undamaged :)

The Blend

 The blend for today has a cross section of news and views – tis the season for diversity! I’m spending the day wrestling with a Christmas tree, yes, I do mean wrestle. As I break out thousands of tree decorations and assorted Christmas decor for around the house, I want to share a some interesting bites of news that has come to my attention.

Please nominate me for the multitasking gold star, thanks!

Okay, back to decorating the tree while listening to my Spotify Christmas play-list accessed by my Kindle Fire. Happy reading, folks!

Amanda Knox Acquitted and Other Points to Ponder

Spent the past weekend at Podcamp Philly where I was immersed in quality digital media information. There is so much good information to digest from this conference. While I arrange my notes from the conference, here are few tasty tidbits of news for your perusal:

  • Amanda Knox acquitted of murder. American student finds freedom today when she was acquitted of the 2007 murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher. While there is now closure for Amanda Knox and her family; the victim’s family is left with picking up the pieces of evidence and starting anew the search for Meredith’s killer. This day is equal parts joy and sadness.
  • ESPN sacks Hank Williams for a chiding Obama comment, yet two radio jocks engaging in a vile discussion of  ’womb shifting’  conservative women are still pulling paychecks from ESPN.
  • With reports of Facebook tracking users around the web even after they exit Facebook, I’ve found a simple, yet affective way to protect your privacy from Facebook cookies:
  • Photobucket
  • FYI: Google Plus is now open to all, no need to ask for an invitation.
  • So, you thought the Concord set record time. A  New Space Venture could see travel to cities worldwide within two hours.
  • The left’s coffee party re-branded ——->  Occupy Wall Street. 
  • Unites States Supreme Court opened today and is expected to take up the question of whether the contentious health care bill is constitutional.

Hope you enjoyed the blend! Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Thursday Blend

I love a good blog mashup. What about you?

Is Mashable doing a happy dance? TechCrunch legacy shareholder, Michael Arrington has been fired from AOL.  Inexplicably, Arrianna Huffington is still employed by AOL. Tell me, dear readers, how many of you consider AOL a primary source your online news?  I believe the last time I did so was in 1999, the year I started blogging.

The woman who at 21 nearly ended the presidency of Bill Clinton and came close to destroying Hilary’s lofty senatorial goal is reported by the Daily Mail to be a ‘social pariah’. No glitz cocktail parties or happily ever after for Monica Lewinsky.  Honestly, I feel sorry for her, she was a young girl used and abused Clinton. Yet, I’m not overly surprised of her situation, with Hill and Bill’s connections politically and in the private sector, I’m sure there was more backlash over the years than has been reported. Yet I will not rule out Monica’s own incompetence as well – the silly girl still loves Bill! Perhaps more so than Hilary?

One of the taxpayer funded mandates of Obamacare is the formation of a centralized medical record system. While it can streamline some aspects of care, it can lead to the mother of all ‘wikileaks’ regarding sensitive medical records. Here is just a peek at what that may look like – a California hospital discovered its protected patient data had been posted to a website for over a year.

Liberal mobs proving Ann Coulter right…yet again. Union mob storms Washington State Port at Longview demanding jobs they don’t rightfully have any claim towards, making sure to take hostages and damage as much property as possible.

The President spoke tonight and I did not have the opportunity to listen in, although I believe it went something like this – Comprehensive list of tax hikes

Senator Rubio responds to the President’s speech:

Get a Job! Jon Gosselin gives advice to his former harridan wife about life in the real world. Personally, my  advice would be for her to immigrate to outer Mongolia or somewhere far, far away from civilization.

A jewel of a post from Verum Serum – 5 Ponzi Scheme Definitions that Fit Social Security Pretty Well. 

 The Madness of Prince Charles -  fortunately most people don’t need a man-servant to put toothpaste on our toothbrush and will carry on ignoring this royal nutter.

Ouch! That’s gotta sting - FBI raids failed solar panel manufacturer, Solyndra LLC. Company officials claim they are not aware of a reason for the FBI search warrants.

Wednesday Blend

Welcome to the Monday Wednesday Blend! Lots of stories floating around the internet today, let’s  jump right in, shall we?

If faced with the same situation – I’d do exactly the same to save Buster’s life.  Alaskan woman punches a bear in the face in order to save her dachshund named Fudge.

Via Verum Serum  WEAC Union fails to bully School Board to vote against changes in an employee handbook in the New Berlin School District. The video embedded in the post is well worth watching, especially the party where the red shirted WEAC union supporters exit the building before the school board vote.

Obama’s green ‘article of faith’ Solyndra has announced plans to declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy despite being offered $535 million in a low interest loan from the federal government.

Pat Dollard wonders about the silence from MSM after left leaning blogger apologizes and explains his unauthorized use and editing of Robert Stacy McCain’s video of Michele Bachmann speaking to a Christian youth group.

Are Faux-Vintage photos from war photojournalists via applications such as Hipstamatic a realistic way to document the realities of modern conflict? As an enthusiast of Hipstamatic, Instagram and Camera+, I fully understand how the look of an image can drive emotions of the viewer.  I don’t see a problem of the choice of camera used by a photojounalist, we all have an agenda when shooting and choose our gear appropriately. I draw the line of fraudulently manipulating an image, for example, the infamous Iranian photo which adding more missiles than actually were fired and numerous Reuters images.  Photo-friends, what are your thoughts on this issue? Leave a message in the comment section.

Birthday weekend is upon me :)  Needless to say, blogging will be quite light over the weekend. Help me celebrate my birthday by donating to Wounded Warrior Project.

Pueblo Ingles is celebrating its 1oth Anniversary by declaring  English as the official language of Planet Earth. Kicking it up a notch, they are collecting messages (english only) to be included in an upcoming satellite launch in hopes of spreading the english language to our alien overlords…errr…friends. sOne lucky message will win  round trip airline tickets and a week at one of the Pueblo Ingles venues.

Donald Douglas reports on a high school teacher suspended for FaceBook comments regarding the recently passed legislation allowing gay couples to marry in New York state.  The fainting class wants his head, but I suspect he will be reinstated. A few months ago a teacher in Bucks County posted scathing criticisms of the her students on her personal blog. She was suspended then re-instated to her job as an English teacher.

Marathon Pundit captures a spectacular shot of a Tiger Swallowtail butterfly while on a run through Mortons Grove. In other news, AFL-CIO announced it is still BFF with Obama — you know this is a friendship with benefits. Locally, three leading Republican city council candidates have garnered endorsements as well: David Oh -Philadelphia AFL-CIO, Denny O’Brien -  Philadelphia AFL-CIO, AFSCME DC 47, and Joseph McColgan-  Philadelphia AFL-CIO. I can imagine what promises were exchanged by the candidates for this endorsement.

In related news, Ohio businessman shot for being non-union.

Oh happy day! Kate + 8 has been cancelled…finally. Maybe she could relocate herself and her brood to Alaska. Speaking of embarrassing Pennsylvanians, Craig Cristy, 47 and his son Shawn Cristy, 19 of McAdoo, Pennsylvania were arrested by the FBI for stalking Sarah Palin’s family. Previously, Shawn Cristy mailed Palin a recipt of a gun he purchased. Awesome, a Jared Loughner wanna be. Liberals need to turn down the hate before a conservative women is shot.

I respect Erick Erickson’s work as a conservative crusader, but I have to side with one of the sweetest bloggers in the blogosphere – Dan Riehl.  I see much promise in Michelle Bachmann and look forward to see how she performs against Romney and Perry who are both formidable candidates. It is way too early to throw support behind one candidate and I am reserving my choice until next year.

Kudos to Big Journalism Larry O’Connor for driving a retraction from Ed Schultz regarding MSNBC’s deliberate editing and misrepresentation of Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry’s recent statement. The most amusing aspect of this story is Tommy Christopher yet again jumped to the racecard before having his ass handed to him.

Nothing like a blend of news for Monday Night post #RaptureFail. So much going on in the world and so little time I have this week – full blame lies with my neglected garden.

And so it goes – David Prosser confirmed winner of the Supreme Court special election. Wisconsin special election board certified David Prosser as winner with a total of 7,004 votes ahead of Kloppenburg .

ABC News questions the reason behind Sunday’s horrific tornado storm that destroyed Joplin, Missouri. I’ll give you a hint…nature not humanity is the cause of this deadly twister.

FCC making up job numbers? Say it ain’t so Joe! Speaking of failed policy, Powerline posted a great summary of economists  Timothy Conley and Bill Dupor extensive study on the effects of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (aka Stimulus Bill). Bottom line – the stimulus stimulated government sector jobs and strangled job growth private sector jobs:

Our benchmark results suggest that the ARRA created/saved approximately 450 thousand state and local government jobs and destroyed/forestalled roughly one million private sector jobs. State and local government jobs were saved because ARRA funds were largely used to offset state revenue shortfalls and Medicaid increases rather than boost private sector employment. The majority of destroyed/forestalled jobs were in growth industries including health, education, professional and business services.

Peter Ferrarra at Forbes.com takes a look at Reaganomics vs Obamanomics. Wanna guess which one is an abject failure?

Convicted Ft. Dix domestic terrorists seek sentence reversal – apparently we did not show proper Umma…

So, Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child or two out of wedlock. What else is new under the sun?  The reigning Kings of Belgium and Monaco have also admitted to fathering children out of wedlock.  Should Arnold pay a price for his indiscretion?

Use Twitpic? A new deal inked with World Entertainment Network allows them to use your TwitPics for commercial use.  I rarely use this service and will see about removing my photos from Twitpic. I prefer Flickr where your photos are always yours.

Speaking of Flickr – I spent several hours this weekend perusing a spectacular but all to brief display at Longwood Garden called ‘Lilytopia’. Working in conjunction with fifteen Dutch breeding houses, Longwood Garden displays more than 13,000 lilies making this the largest Lily display in the nation. The lilies are flown overnight to the United States and kept in cool storage rooms till show time. It takes a year to plan the display and four days to install the display. The lilies are display grade flowers that are rarely seen outside the Netherlands. What a sensational treat for those lucky to live in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Less than two weeks till I participate in the nation’s largest 10 mile race – The 2011 Broad Street Run.  If I’m not eating, sleeping or working, I’m running. The training has been great and I’m looking forward to participating in this event.

Of course, the world is not stopping in awe of my achievement and there are so many stories to touch on, so once again, I am turning to ‘The Blend’  to quickly cover stories that caught my attention the past few days:

Steven Crowder explains why liberal democrats of Wonkette and elsewhere hate disabled children – they are all cowards.

Two senseless deaths in a war Obama should not have dragged the U.S. into in the first place.

Ahh, is this the peace we want to support in Egypt? Egyptian rioters: ‘Christian governor must go!

Apple and Google collect data on smartphone users whereabouts. Honestly, I would be concerned if I had a good 3G signal with my iPhone4. For those that do, it is interesting to note that the location data collected will help you with your purchasing needs:

These databases could help them tap the $2.9 billion market for location-based services—expected to rise to $8.3 billion in 2014, according to research firm Gartner Inc.

Got your social media fix for the upcoming British royal wedding? Will and Kate and their wedding are mentioned on social media sites once every ten seconds. Wow!

Your McSandwich just got a price makeover:

McDonald’s Corp (NYSE:MCD – News) forecast higher prices for beef, dairy and other items and said it would cautiously raise prices to keep attracting diners, who are grappling with higher grocery and gas bills.

I’m trying to recall the last time I ate McDonald’s fare, hmm, perhaps years ago? News like this is a great opportunity to remind folks of the benefits of  growing their own.
