16th Week Pregnant


I am on my 16th week in my pregnancy. It is getting closer and closer for us to know the gender of our little one. As I have read on the book I am reading, on this stage the baby starts moving now but could barely feel his/her kick or movements. I am excited though but I don't really know what's the feeling of the baby kicking...Hehehehehe..I am sorry this is my first pregnancy and everything is new to me. It is very exciting but at the same time it is also scary though. I don't that must be the normal feeling when you're pregnant. But we can't wait to see our little one on the day that I will deliver him/her.

12 Words You Can Never Say in the Office

This list is useful for 20-somethings, too. Now when the senior person in the office uses one of these terms, you'll know what he's talking about.

1. Intranet

Popular in the mid-90s, the term "intranet" referred to a private network running the Internet Protocol and other Internet standards such as the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). It was also used to describe an internal Web site that was hosted behind a firewall and was accessible only to employees. Today, every private network runs IP. So you can just use the term virtual private network or VPN to describe a private IP-based network.

2. Extranet

An "extranet" referred to private network connections based on Internet standards such as IP and HTTP that extended outside an organization, such as between business partners. Extranets often replaced point-to-point electronic data interchange (EDI) connections that used standards such as X12. Today, companies provide suppliers, resellers and other members of their supply chain with access to their VPNs.

3. Web Surfing

When is the last time you heard someone talk about surfing the Web? You know the term is out of date when your kids don't know what it means. To teens and tweens, the Internet and the World Wide Web are one and the same thing. So it's better to use the term "browsing" the Web if you want to be understood.

4. Push Technology

The debate over the merits of "push" versus "pull" technology came to a head in 1996 with the release of the PointCast Network, a Web service that sent a steady stream of news to subscribers. However, PointCast and other push technology services required too much network bandwidth. Eventually, push technology evolved into RSS feeds, which remain the preferred method for publishing information to subscribers of the Internet. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.

5. Application Service Provider (ASP)

During this decade, the term "Application Service Provider" evolved into "Software-as-a-Service." Both terms refer to a vendor hosting a software application and providing access to it over the Web. Customers buy the software on a subscription basis, rather than having to own and operate it themselves. ASP was a hot term prior to the dot-com bust. Then it was replaced by "SaaS." Now it's cool to talk about "cloud computing."

6. Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)

Coined by former Apple CEO John Sculley back in 1992 when he unveiled the Apple Newton, the term "personal digital assistant" referred to a handheld computer. PDA was still in use in 1996, when the Palm Pilot was the hottest handheld in corporate America. Today, the preferred generic term for a handheld like a Blackberry or an iPhone is a "smartphone".

7. Internet Telephony

You need to purge the term "Internet telephony" from your vocabulary and switch to VoIP, for Voice over IP. Even the term VoIP is getting old-fashioned because pretty soon all telephone calls will be routed over the Internet rather than the Public Switched Telephone Network. It's probably time to stop referring to the PSTN, too, because it is headed for the history books as all voice, data and video traffic is carried on the Internet.

8. Weblog

A blog is a shortened version of "Weblog," a term that emerged in the late 1990s to describe commentary that an individual publishes online. It spawned many words still in use such as "blogger" and "blogosphere." Nowadays, few people have time to blog so they are "microblogging," which is another word that's heading out the door as people turn Twitter into a generic term for blasting out 140-character observations or opinions.

9. Thin Client

You have to give Larry Ellison credit for seeing many of the flaws in the client/server computing architecture and for popularizing the term "thin client" to refer to Oracle's alternative terminal-like approach. In 1993, Ellison was touting thin clients as a way for large organizations to improve network security and manageability. Although thin clients never replaced PCs, the concept is similar to "virtual desktops" that are gaining popularity today as a way of supporting mobile workers.

10. Rboc

In 1984, the U.S. government forced AT&T to split up into seven Regional Bell Operating Companies [RBOCs] also known as Baby Bells. Customers bought local service from RBOCs and long-distance service from carriers such as AT&T. Telecom industry mergers over the last 15 years have formed integrated local- and long-distance carriers such as AT&T, Verizon and Qwest. This makes not only the term RBOC obsolete, but also the terms ILEC for Incumbent Local Exchange Carrier [i.e., GTE] and CLEC for Competitive Local Exchange Carrier [i.e., MFS].

11. Long-Distance Call

Thanks to flat-rate calling plans available from carriers for at least five years, nobody needs to distinguish between local and long-distance calls anymore. Similarly, you don't need to distinguish between terrestrial and wireless calls because so many people use only wireless services. Like pay phones, long-distance calls -- and their premium prices -- are relics of a past without national and unlimited calling plans.

12. World Wide Web

Nobody talks about the "World Wide Web" anymore, or the "Information Superhighway," for that matter. It's just the Internet. It's a distinction that Steve Czaban, the popular Fox Sports Radio talk show host, likes to mock when he refers to the "Worldwide Interweb." Nothing dates you more than pulling out one of those old-fashioned ways of referring to the Internet such as "infobahn" or "electronic highway."

Beware Bernie Madoff Books

What could be more insolent than the Bernie Madoff fraud? How about a bunch of books that promise the inside scoop on the con artist's scam but fail to deliver the goods? Audacious as it seems, that's the proposition the publishing industry and a bunch of itchy-trigger-finger writers would offer us, with no fewer than six new titles about the Madoff fraud either in bookstores or destined for the shelves in the coming weeks. There is "Betrayal: The Life and Times of Bernie Madoff," "Too Good To Be True: The Rise and Fall of Bernie Madoff," "Madoff With the Money," "Madoff: Corruption, Deceit and the Making of the World's Most Notorious Ponzi Scheme" "Catastrophe: The Story of Bernard L. Madoff, The Man Who Swindled the World." And, of course, "Madoff's Other Secret: Love, Money, Bernie and Me." No one would argue Mr. Madoff's value as a P.T. Barnum figure. His villainy makes him an easy target for mocking, humiliation and the prurient glimpses with which the raft of Madoff books tantalize us. Unfortunately, these books can't deliver on the big questions still swirling around the case. How can they? The investigation into Mr. Madoff's scheme is little more than half a year old. The most crucial evidence is still under wraps as prosecutors put together cases against Mr. Madoff's co-conspirators. Who, other than Mr. Madoff's right-hand man, Frank DiPascali, knowingly aided the fraud? What was Ruth Madoff's role, if any? What was his brother and chief compliance officer, Peter Madoff's, role? How about the sons who worked in the Madoff empire but didn't have a hint of the colossal scam until their father confessed to them in December 2008? Did the marriage of Peter's daughter, Shana Madoff, to the Securities and Exchange Commission official who was supposed to be watching the company have any role in perpetuating the fraud? Where is all the money? Many of these books will likely be in the discount bin by the time the average citizen finds out. We're just going to have to wait. In the meantime, the best chapters on the Madoff case are coming from the U.S. District Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York.cIn Mr. DiPascali's 47-page plea agreement filed Aug. 11, we learn how Mr. Madoff directed Mr. DiPascali to create "a phony computer trading 'platform' for the purpose of making it falsely appear that (Madoff's firm) executed securities transactions" and then "practiced using the phony trading platform in preparation for deceiving the SEC and anyone else who demanded evidence of their trading activity by purporting to demonstrate the system in action." A November 2005 audit by European clients on Mr. Madoff's investment arm is also detailed. Mr. DiPascali posed as "head of institutional operations" and created phony trading reports and custody statements. Madoff Investment Securities liked to show the Europeans U.S. trading records and U.S. regulators European trading records to play on investigators' sense of unfamiliarity.

Lotto Winner Unchanged by Money

A Central Kentucky woman who won $200,000 in a Powerball drawing two weeks ago was playing again for Wednesday's $250 million jackpot - but Liz Ison tells ABC 36 News she wonders if winning all that money might be too much trouble.

Ison works at the Harrodsburg Herald, and says she has no plans to go part-time or give it up. She says she regularly plays Pick 3 and scratch-off games, and wouldn't have played Powerball that evening if she hadn't won a dollar with a scratch-off ticket.

"I told my husband, 'I won $200-thousand,' and he said, 'Honey, don't get excited, you haven't won that much.' He said just go to the store and see. So I walked into the store and they told me they had a $200,000 Powerball winner and I said, "Well, it was me.'"

Ison says she banked the money that day and later put it into certificates of deposit for her granddaughters, Hailey and Monica. She said she would probably use a bit of it for the food bank she began at Harrodsburg's Centennial Baptist Church.

"There's nothing I need," she said with a smile. "I'm just me like I was before I won it."

The Soul of a City

Philippe Petit, the French acrobat who in 1974 walked across a tightrope between the twin towers, wasn’t on the payroll of the Port Authority, but in retrospect he probably should have been. At the time, the newly opened World Trade Center was shaping up as a huge mistake. Not only had the project cost far more than it was supposed to, but a city spiraling toward bankruptcy didn’t exactly need millions more square feet of office space. Worse still, the towers were out of scale and utterly unattractive — “the largest aluminum siding job in the history of the world,” as one critic put it. They were the ugly stepchild of New York’s skyscrapers, seemingly destined to be forever denied a place in the life and lore of the city. But in the span of a single summer morning, Petit gave the towers a history of their own. His stunt represented nothing less than a symbolic passing of the torch: in the remake of “King Kong” two years later, the furious, lovelorn gorilla takes his last stand not astride the Empire State Building but atop the World Trade Center...Read More...

Body found in suitcase believed to be swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore

Authorities believe they've found the body of the 28-year-old swimsuit model who went missing several days ago.

Tuesday, police announced that a body found in Buena Park, Calif. on Saturday has been identified as that of missing model, Jasmine Fiore, according to KABC-TV.

The body, inside a small suitcase that was not zipped up, was discovered early Saturday in a trash bin by a passerby, reports the Orange County Register. KTLA is reporting Jasmine may have been strangled.

Jasmine was last seen only a few days ago at her Fairfax District home. She had recently moved to the Los Angeles area from Las Vegas to open a personal training business.

Her mother told authorities her daughter was getting ready to make a trip to San Diego for a poker tournament. Jasmine’s white 2007 Mercedes CL S550 is also missing and is described as having tinted windows, black rims, and paper license plates that read “Platinum Motors.”

Jasmine had modeled for Las Vegas hotels, worked as an events coordinator for Playboy’s ‘Girls of Golf,’ and done advertising for radio personality Howard Stern.

She had recently dyed her hair black and changed her last name from Kinkaid to Fiore.

Direct TV is now an in demand

Direct TV must be the most popular television network in the market today. I have seen their advertisement everywhere. Aired on TV for many times a days, on newspapers, internet and anywhere.

Awesome.

They have been patronized with so many users with a good reputation and an excellent service rendered all the time. Hurry and be one of us.

Favre Set to Sign With Vikings

Quarterback Brett Favre is expected to sign a contract Tuesday with the Minnesota Vikings to come out of retirement again and play for the team this season, according to sources familiar with the situation. Favre arrived at the Vikings' training complex after traveling to the Minneapolis area earlier in the day. He exited a plane at a St. Paul, Minn., airport and got into a waiting vehicle. He reportedly is to undergo a physical and, barring any unexpected snags, is to sign a deal that reportedly will pay him approximately $12 million this season. The contract reportedly contains an option for a second season. He could be on the practice field Wednesday and play in a preseason game Friday. Favre declined an invitation by the Vikings to report to training camp with them last month, saying at the time he wasn't certain that he could play a full season at this point in his career at a level of performance he considered satisfactory. Vikings Coach Brad Childress said at the time that the club would not renew its pursuit of Favre. But Favre also left open the possibility even then that he would change his mind if the Vikings called him during the season. It marks the second straight offseason that Favre has come out of retirement to resume his playing career. Favre's mother, Bonita, told the Biloxi Sun Herald that her son is expected to work out Wednesday and play in the Vikings' preseason game Friday at home against the Kansas City Chiefs."He is going," she told the newspaper. "I have mixed emotions, but I have always loved to watch him play. This time, however, I thought he would stay retired and stay home. I guess he could not do it. He told me he would always wonder, 'What if?' I told him I supported him. I think playing on Friday was part of the deal.... I hope he does not have to do as much. He should not have to throw as much with the good running back. That said, I hope he does not have to throw as much and try to make things happen like he usually does. They seem to have a good team in place and he liked that. I guess I need to get a Vikings jersey now." Childress confirmed earlier Tuesday to the Associated Press that Favre was traveling to Minneapolis and told the AP in an e-mail that the team would sign Favre later in the day "in a perfect world." WCCO-TV in Minneapolis first reported that Favre is expected to sign a contract Tuesday afternoon with the Vikings. WISN-TV in Milwaukee had reported earlier that Favre and his wife, Deanna, had boarded a plane with a Vikings logo on it in Hattiesburg, Miss., to travel to Minneapolis. The Vikings and Favre reportedly had a tentative contract agreement in place when Favre declined to report to training camp, telling Childress at the time that he would stay retired. That decision shocked many people within the NFL who had assumed that Favre would play for the Vikings this season. Favre underwent offseason surgery for the partially torn biceps tendon that plagued him last season while he was with the New York Jets, and he spent part of his summer working out with a high school team near his home in Mississippi. When Favre rejected the Vikings last month, he told ESPN: "It was the hardest decision I've ever made. I didn't feel like physically I could play at a level that was acceptable... I had to be careful not to commit for the wrong reasons. They were telling me, 'You went through all this, you had the surgery and you've got to finish it off.' But I have legitimate reasons for my decision. I'm 39 with a lot of sacks to my name." ESPN reported Tuesday that orthopedist James Andrews, who performed this summer's surgery on Favre, told Favre that the quarterback has a slight rotator cuff tear in his right shoulder. Even so, Favre decided to play again, and he reportedly met this week with Vikings owner Zygi Wilf as a precursor to Tuesday's trip to Minneapolis. Signing with the Vikings enables Favre, who turns 40 in October, to play two games this season against the Green Bay Packers, his longtime team that he left last summer after clashing with the club, and General Manager Ted Thompson in particular. The move perhaps also makes the Vikings a leading Super Bowl contender in the NFC. The team has a dynamic running back in Adrian Peterson, a solid offensive line and a capable defense. Favre is familiar with the Vikings' offensive system and their coaching staff, with previously existing relationships with Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Favre was friendly with Childress when Childress coached at the University of Wisconsin in the 1990s, and Bevell formerly was Favre's quarterbacks coach with the Packers. The Vikings reportedly were the team for which Favre wanted to play last season. But the Packers were unwilling then to permit him to play for a division rival and traded him instead to the Jets. Favre spent 16 seasons with the Packers before leaving the franchise unceremoniously last summer. He retired following a highly successful 2007 season in which he played well and the Packers reached the NFC title game before losing in overtime. The Packers made plans to move on with Aaron Rodgers as their starter at quarterback. Favre changed his mind and decided to continue playing but was at odds with Thompson and the organization over his proposed return, and the Packers traded him to the Jets. Favre was only the league's 21st-rated passer last season while with the Jets, throwing 22 interceptions to go with his 22 touchdown passes. He and the team played poorly down the stretch, and the Jets missed the playoffs and fired Eric Mangini as their coach. Several Jets players were publicly critical of Favre after the season. He announced another retirement this past offseason. But the Jets released him off their reserve-retired list following an NFL draft in which they traded up to select potential replacement Mark Sanchez, and Favre began toying with another return. Some in and around the league suspected even after Favre rejected the Vikings' offer to report to their training camp that Favre wasn't done playing, and the speculation about a return intensified Monday when Fox reported that many within the Minnesota organization, including players and coaches, remained convinced that Favre would play for the team this season. Favre has 65,127 career passing yards, with 464 touchdowns and 310 interceptions. He takes over as the Vikings' starter. Without Favre, the Vikings had planned to have Sage Rosenfels, obtained in an offseason traded with the Houston Texans, and Tarvaris Jackson compete for the starting job. The Vikings play the Packers at home on Oct. 5 and in Green Bay on Nov. 1.

Robert Novak, Long-Time Conservative Columnist, Dies at 78

Robert D. Novak, 78, an influential columnist and panelist on TV news-discussion shows who called himself a "stirrer up of strife" on behalf of conservative causes, died today at his home in Washington of a brain tumor first diagnosed in July 2008.

Mr. Novak's "Inside Report" syndicated column, shared for 30 years with the late Rowland Evans, was important reading for anyone who wanted to know what was happening in Washington. Mr. Novak and Evans broke stories about presidential politics, fiscal policy and intra-party feuds. Their journalism, which reported leaks from the highest sources of government, often had embarrassing consequences for politicians.

In recent years, Mr. Novak was best known for publicly identifying CIA operative Valerie Plame. His July 14, 2003, column was printed days after Plame's husband, former U.S. ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, publicly claimed that the Bush White House had knowingly distorted intelligence that Iraq tried to obtain uranium from Africa.

The column triggered a lengthy federal investigation into the Plame leak and resulted in the 2007 conviction of a top vice presidential aide, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, for perjury and obstruction of justice. President George W. Bush later commuted Libby's prison term.

Mr. Novak was accused by prominent journalists of being a pawn in a government retribution campaign against Wilson. Mr. Novak, who had called the U.S. invasion of Iraq "unjustified," denied the allegation.

He wrote that his initial column was meant to ask why Wilson had been sent on a CIA fact-finding mission involving the uranium. Then-Deputy Secretary of State Richard L. Armitage mentioned Plame's CIA position to Mr. Novak, and Bush aide Karl Rove confirmed it.

In a 2006 column, Mr. Novak wrote that Armitage "did not slip me this information as idle chitchat. . . . He made clear he considered it especially suited for my column." Armitage told The Washington Post that his disclosure to Mr. Novak was made in an offhand manner and that he did not know why Plame's husband was sent to Africa.

Mr. Novak lamented that the Plame story would "forever be part of my public identity" despite having written columns he said were more important.

Until the Plame controversy, Mr. Novak had largely been known as a strong anti-Communist in his foreign policy views. He also was an leading advocate of supply-side economics, a belief that tax cuts would lead to widespread financial prosperity.

David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union lobbying organization, said that Mr. Novak helped transform supply-side economics from a fringe idea into a tenet of President Ronald Reagan's economic policy. Keene called Mr. Novak "a giant of the profession" who "gave respectability and visibility to conservative ideas and positions in the 1970s, when they were mostly dismissed."

Mr. Novak was a congressional reporter for the Associated Press and the Wall Street Journal before he teamed with Evans in 1963 to write a Washington-based political column for the old New York Herald-Tribune. "Inside Report" ran in almost 300 papers nationally, including The Post. Mr. Novak continued the column after Evans's retirement in 1993. Evans died in 2001.

Focusing on political intrigue rather than starchy analysis, they had an immediate effect with news about Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater's likely nomination as the Republican presidential candidate in 1964.

Nine possible H1N1 cases reported at OSU

Nine cases of influenza have been reported on the OSU campus during the past week, but officials said they have had a plan to combat it for quite some time.
Steve Rogers, director of university health services, said the campus has had a pandemic-influenza plan for about four years. He said the plan would cover an outbreak of the H1N1 influenza, also known as swine flu. Swine flu is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by Type A influenza viruses, according to an Oklahoma State Department of Health fact sheet.
In late March and early April 2009, cases of human infection with H1N1 viruses were first reported in southern California and near San Antonio, Texas, according to the sheet. Other states have reported cases of swine flu infection in humans and cases have been reported internationally, too. As of Aug. 13, there were 7,511 reported cases of swine flu and 477 deaths in relation to swine flu in the United States, according the Center for Disease Control’s Web site at http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/update.htm. Rogers said some of the some of the cases reported on campus have tested positive for Type A influenza, but that doesn’t mean it is necessarily H1N1. “We don’t know whether it is H1N1 for certain because those samples have to be confirmed by the state,” he said. “We have sent what the state has requested—three samples so far—and they will be testing those to see whether it is H1N1.”The treatment, prevention and the response for swine flue are all the same as any other influenza, Rogers said.
“There’s not a lot that we can actually do other than educate and inform because the prevention is an individual act—it is doing things like washing your hands regularly, coughing into a tissue and then throwing the tissue away,” Rogers said. “It really is a situation in which the individual is really the method for best control.” Rogers said health services and residential life have teamed up to provide meal delivery to students affected with influenza. Students diagnosed with influenza will be able to get an exemption from class, he said.
Matt Brown, director of housing and residential life, said the campus is usually affected with a “bug” each fall and spring semester. “We’re not going to stop it, we’re just going to make sure students are taking care of themselves and help try to support them to get over it, get back to class and keep going,” Brown said. “It’s going to work its way through.” Brown said on-campus students can use their meal plan to pay for the meal-delivery service.
“We’d like for the student to try to arrange for someone to pick up their food for them, but if they cannot do that we’ll send someone from our staff to do it,” he said. “Our biggest concern is we don’t want anyone starving, but we also don’t want them having to go out and eat somewhere if they’re sick. Panhellenic Council President Erika Curry said fraternities and sororities are also stepping up precautions for a possible campus-wide influenza pandemic.
“The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs followed all procedures and advice given to us by the proper authorities,” Curry said. Rogers said there’s really no reason for a whole lot of excitement or worry regarding swine flu. “Actually, with what we’re seeing, this is mild compared to what we saw in seasonal flu a couple of years ago,” he said. “It seems to respond well to medication, so if we can make the diagnosis early enough and as long as the medications hold up, we can shorten it even more.

Chun Yi

Chun Yi, the programme advises us, was the name of a child brought by his mother to a temple where the disciplines of kung fu would eventually turn him into a Better Person, wise, strong and dedicated to peace. Chun Yi , the kung fu show at the Coliseum, did not, alas, have quite the same effect on me. My resistance to kitsch is pretty high, but this rampaging outburst of eye-popping acrobatics, glutinous soundtrack and nugatory drama, of men maltreating each other in approved breaking-slabs-of-concrete- on-bare-chests fashion and generally showing that nothing can hurt them, tested my ability to withstand such jollities to the limit. Chun Yi: The Legend of Kung Fu , has been exported from Beijing in recent years. It is a frenzy of garish lighting effects, physical bravura of an extraordinary kind, a narrative that would curdle the milk of human kindness in someone of sweeter temperament than mine, and it boasts every trick of the theatre save nudity and a shipwreck. The theme, obligingly given to us in English by what purports to be a monk instructing a child (and the show is well-totted), relates how kung fu, like scouting, will educate a lad, shape a man and bring about moral and physical betterment. So we follow a small boy, wrenched from his mother for his own good, in the predictable journey from apprenticeship to dazzling muscular skills, to temptation - which involves swinging through the air with the beloved and a small but noxious outbreak of dance - and then redemption through gymnastics. Impossible feats of derring-do abound, and costuming is as far over the top as it is possible to go without looking like a drag queen. A recorded and saccharin score drowns us in pentatonic syrup and wailing voices, and generally affects the digestion badly. The performers are stunning in their abilities, leaping and turning somersaults in the air, kicking the while at anything that impedes their progress. Swords and staves are brandished, and acrobatics rule, extraordinary and thrilling. The lighting is manic. Snow falls at one moment; soap bubbles and a funeral and dragons and an oracular commentary are there to make matters more and more unlikely. Inscrutable. Hysterical. Not to be tried at home

Maternity Clothing Line

Alumnus' return excites fans, friends and relatives

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - If the enthusiastic response of Cabell Circuit Court Judge Dan O'Hanlon is any indication, Marshall University made the perfect pick in hiring Mike Hamrick as its next athletic director. "What a great day for Marshall University," O'Hanlon told Board of Governors member John Hess on Monday afternoon, a few minutes before Hamrick's introductory news conference began. "I am so excited. This is fantastic." Others apparently agree. More than 100 people crammed into the Cam Henderson Center's Robert C. Hartley Room to welcome home Hamrick, a 51-year-old Clendenin native and Herbert Hoover High School product who graduated from Marshall in 1980 and played football for the Herd in 1976-79. Among those in the crowd were some of his former Marshall teammates, including Bob Campbell (East Bank), Howie Harris (East Bank) and Mike Johnson (South Charleston). Hamrick poked fun at his special guests during his speech. "I see some old friends, some guys back there who still think they can play," he said. "They never could play, but they still think they can play." The Herd was 5-6 in 1976, 2-9 in '77, 1-10 in '78 and 1-10 in '79. "I left here in 1980 after the four greatest years of my life," Hamrick said. "Some of the guys in the back can attest to that. I see a few of them. We didn't win very many football games, but we tried. We gave it that good effort. We always represented this university in a positive manner. "We believe we helped set the groundwork for this program (which had 20 consecutive winning seasons from 1984-2003). I got here after the plane crash (which killed 75 people in 1970, most of them football players and coaches). The newness of the Young Thundering Herd had worn off. It was a great education. It was a good time. We tried hard for Marshall University. "Over those four years, that set the tone for the rest of my life. I owe that to this university. I owe that to all of the supporters of this athletic program and this university because I would not be in the position I am at today or had the opportunities I have had without Marshall University." Some of the Herd head coaches also attended, including Mark Snyder (football) and Donnie Jones (men's basketball).

Football Once Again 2009 Season

Winter season is coming once again and as we all know when this season comes, It's "football" time. Yeah, football fans it's that time of the year once again which is great. I just signed up with WaiverWire to get the latest update on the NFL games this coming football season. It may sound too early but hey it's free and I don't really want to missed Troy Polamalu of Pittsburg Steelers update everyday. I like him, he is good and so smart during the game. He leads the group and is really determine to win. As we all know, they won the last years "super bowl" and I am very glad about it.

As I've read the sports news lately, each team has been practicing a lot in preparation for the upcoming 2009 season. Well, I don't blame them, everybody wants to win. To me I hope my team will win again like they did last year. Their game was spectacular last year and hopefully they will do their best once again for the 2009 season. It was a momentum for them and I was very happy when they won. Nothing beats the Pittsburg Steelers..hehehehe..I know each of us has it's own favorite but team so I will brag on my team..lol.. So guys mark your calendar for the football season.

We Loathe Marshall: Does Depth Chart Drop Mean Brandon Marshall's Denver Exit? by Rich Kurtzman (Analyst)

Marshall is no longer the No. 1 receiver on the Broncos, heck he's not even on the first team now. Second year phenom Eddie Royal has taken the No. 1 receiver spot, with veterans Brandon Stokely and Jabar Gaffney following him respectively. This move may not just be due to injury though, it may act as a precursor, to the very near future. Foreshadowing in the drama blockbuster that is Brandon Marshall's playing career, and really, whole life.

Marshall was moved off the starting string yesterday, which could be seen in a few different ways. First, he's just injured, and since he won't be practicing, it's a good way to get the other guys comfortable in those spots. Especially if Marshall misses significant time during the season. Second, Marshall was taken off the roster because he's hurt and has a court date coming up on Thursday. If Marshall is found guilty, he will likely miss a good part of the season, up to eight games, which again gets the next guys in line playing time at their new positions and learning the new routes and formations that come with McDaniels' arrival. Third, and most intriguing, this move of Marshall from No. 1 overall receiver to second-stringer signifies the Broncos possibly shopping the disgruntled receiver around. Maybe McDaniels is fed up with Marshall's "injury," brashness, and likely inability to learn the multitude of plays put in front of him.

Brandon Marshall is a superb talent, but is he worth it? Is he worth all this negative media attention, in a year Denver has already been shelled by the national and local media alike? Is he worth the "rockstar" attitude that he and many other prima donna NFL receivers bring with them? Is he worth the fumbles, plays taken off, and weak work ethic? Perhaps yesterday in Dove Valley McD and CO. finally thought, "no." Or perhaps Marshall just needs a few days rest.

I may be paranoid, but I wouldn't be surprised if Marshall is gone in the next few days.

Back Home, Neil Diamond Catches Up With CBS 2

It's a hot August night and singer Neil Diamond is ready to heat things up even more. The legendary singer from Brooklyn has been churning out hits from "Sweet Caroline" to "America" for nearly five decades, and still commands the stage in front of legions of loyalists. "Cracklin' Rosie" makes Neil Diamond smile, and it has his audiences smiling, singing, and dancing along with him. His fans are exuberant, passionate, and devoted. From teenagers, grandparents, and everything in between, all are hopelessly devoted to the adult contemporary legend, who hardly resembles a 68-year-old. CBS 2 HD met up with Diamond on the Brooklyn Bridge recently to talk about his CBS special. Standing there brought back some special memories for him. "It's my hometown. This connects right up to Manhattan, it's part of me, it's like in my genes," he said. Also in the special, Diamond returns to his childhood neighborhood where some fans learn something new. "Yeah, I grew up here! I grew up on Argyle and Westminster Road," he told an excited couple who ran into him on the street. "That's amazing that these people know me," he humbly admitted. But nothing is quite as amazing as his enduring career. His appeal and his music is as strong now as the day he burst on the scene five decades ago. With 37 top ten singles, he says he doesn't have a favorite. He is, though, taken aback by the impact his songs have had. "It's always amazing to me because so many stories and so many people have taken this music to heart and made it a part of their lives," he said. And although being on the road does get tiring, performing is what keeps him coming back for more. "The moment you step on stage, it all disappears, and you know what you're there for," he said. The CBS special, "Hot August Night," airs Friday night on CBS 2 right after the Jets preseason football game.

Brush fire burns in northeast Los Angeles

A brush fire burning on a brush-covered ridge between the city of Los Angeles and suburban Glendale has grown to about 40 acres. Los Angeles fire spokesman Devin Gales says an unknown number of homes are potentially threatened in the Eagle Rock area near the interchange of State Route 134 and Route 2. A Glendale fire official says voluntary evacuations are under way and there are discussions about making the move mandatory. Helicopters are making water-dropping runs on the blazing slopes of the Verdugo Mountains. Winds are light but temperatures remain in the 90s. Gales says there were three other spot fires in the same general area.

Cash for Clunkers car list is out

The CARS program may be out of cash, but reports show that the program may have boosted some sales revenue for some hurting car manufactures and dealerships.

The top 10 list of cars that replaced the exchanged clunkers includes:

1. Ford Focus
2. Honda Civic
3. Toyota Corolla
4. Toyota Prius
5. Ford Escape
6. Toyota Camry
7. Dodge Caliber
8. Hyundai Elantra
9. Honda Fit
10. Chevy Cobalt

The White House warned yesterday that the Cash for Clunkers program would likely be gone by Friday if more money is not shoveled into it. The House has approved an extra $2 billion for the program already. Now it is just waiting for Senate approval. Several Senators are saying they will not back the program. Many conservatives see it as another government bailout that will have long-term consequences. Environmentally speaking, the program is doing a lot for the fuel economy of the US as consumers replace gas guzzlers with more efficient cars.

Access Denied

In the contemporary imagination, the chastity belt holds a place in close kinship with medieval devices of torture. As a mechanical restraint upon the human organism, the chastity belt exists as an object of curiosity alongside the iron maiden and the rack. Unlike the others, however, the chastity belt is meant to restrict pleasure rather than inflict pain. As part of Metal-Urge, the Tacoma Art Commission’s summer-long celebration of the metal arts, the gallery space known simply as Mineral has invited a variety of regional artists to create their own version of the chastity belt. The resulting show, entitled “Entrance Denied: the Art of the Chastity Belt,” opened July 18 and runs through Sept. 5. The walls and display cases within Mineral’s cozy space are filled with a wide variety of “chastity belts” submitted for the show. Some are fitted onto white mannequin torsos that are mounted on the walls. A number of the artists have used the form of the chastity belt – i.e. a cumbersome or imposing garment meant to be fastened around the loins ­– as a template upon which to construct a similar device using their own particular media. Lauren Osmolski’s “The Guardian,” for example, is a mask-like face (that appears to be an owl with curly antenna) made of brass and copper. It has leather straps (made by Amy Pomering) to fasten it upon the pelvis of its display mannequin. Trained as a blacksmith, Osmolski brings traditional metalworking techniques to the fore in the creation of works that draw upon such disparate sources as Northwest Coast Indian art and the art nouveau movement. Other artists approach the concept of the chastity belt from a philosophical point of view, exploring the whole idea of chastity itself. Bill Dawson, for example, asserts that marketing is the new chastity. Consumerist culture values objects that are pristine and hermetically sealed in their plastic packaging. Dawson thus presents a computer mouse that is kept forever pure inside its plastic wrapping. It is presented like a jewel at the center of a kind of elongated shield fashioned out of steel. Julia Lowther and Mineral owner Lisa Kinoshita also present versions of the chastity belt that are visually beautiful results of a rather thoughtful analysis of the idea of chastity and how that translates into a contemporary worldview. Lowther’s “Pathological Purity” is expertly crafted out of sterling silver links. Most of the artists approach the outlandish idea of the chastity belt with sharp humor. Foremost among these is Tacoma artist Lynn DiNino, whose wild contraption is entitled “Natural Selection Protection (she hears his coming, she RUNS).” DiNino puts a spin on the chastity belt by making it something worn by a man instead of a woman. Full of bells and chimes, the chastity belt is designed to give a clear warning of the approach of its imagined wearer so that any women in the vicinity will know to stay away. The belt is also accessorized with items that poke fun at stereotypical male behaviors that women might find unappealing. There are garlic cloves to produce a bad smell and a package of saltine crackers that the man might use to make crumbs in the bed. Dorothy Cheng and Naomi Landig present a set of five beautifully crafted chastity belts made as accessories for a Barbie doll. By making the chastity belt a mere accessory of the “prolifically outfitted Barbie,” the artists seek to highlight “the absurdity of a sexless but sexualized toy wearing a garment which was originally imagined to prevent the act of sex.” “Entrance Denied: the Art of the Chastity Belt” touches both the intellect and the funny bone and is well worth an excursion to Mineral. It is located 301 Puyallup Ave.

Summer dress

Do you think buying a summer dress is too late? I guess not because we are still on the summer season and my God it is really hot during the day. Our air conditioner is in full blast all the time. I really have to because I am pregnant right now and on my 13th week. I always feel hot and sweating although the air conditioner is blowing. My mother in law said that it's part of being pregnant. Therefore, summer and pregnancy are hard to combine. Lol! But anyways I plan to buy new clothes preferably comfortable clothes. I want something smooth, loose, refreshing, sexy and something I can wear all the time.

I found a website that has the kind of dress that I would like to have. Here's the picture. I so love this dress the first time I saw it on amiclubwear.com. I can't resist not buying it because aside from it's very affordable, it will also provide me the comfort that I wanted to have during my pregnancy. I could definitely wear this all time and just the style of the dress alone, it feels so refreshing and very sexy. Check out the website now!

New 'Cash for Clunkers' bill is a lemon

Finally, some members of Congress are speaking out against a no-questions-asked extension of the Cash for Clunkers bill. Now it's up to the U.S. Senate to slow things down and pass a better measure than the U.S. House approved last week. The House decided to pour $2 billion into the program with the same overly attractive -- and taxpayer-costly -- $4,500 reward to motorists trading in an older, low-mileage vehicle. The better decision would be to keep the clunkers program rolling, with less of a benefit -- around $2,000 a vehicle.Of course, some Republicans say they want to kill the whole thing right now, that the original $1 billion invested in the plan was enough money. Yes, it was a large sum. And spending another $2 billion would be yet another expense our grandkids will have to pay off. However, that cost could be be worthwhile -- if Congress changes the rules and puts a more restrictive deal in front of vehicle owners. Many will still come forward to pay for a new car, that will get more mileage and pollute less. Both are good things. But the next stage of "Cash for Clunkers" definitely should not offer excessive amounts of taxpayer dollars to woo people to take those new vehicles off the showroom floors.

Online Shopping

Women in all ages loves to shop. Not just for themselves but to their love ones as well. To tell you honestly, I am not fun of shopping. To me it's tiring but I do have collections in my personal belongings which are shoes and purses. I love buying those. With clothing, I also love collecting it.

Now, I am 13 weeks pregnant and collecting baby clothes is one of my favorite thing to do. I am so fascinated seeing the different designs and colors of the baby clothes online and I am always tempted to buy it. We don't know the gender of our baby yet but hopefully 6 weeks from now because I can't wait to prepare all the things our baby need when he/she gets here. As future parents, we want the best for our baby. We want to make sure that we get the right stuff for our baby.

Having said so, I found a website to buy the things we need. Not just for our baby but also for us parents too. I found a shopping website for kids stuff, men and women's clothing, shoes, handbags and a lot more. Name it and they have it. They provide what everybody need. I feel very confident when I visited their website because I know I will get the right baby for our baby and for us. I will definitely shop with Zappos.com as soon as we know our baby's gender.

BUESCHER: Captures 17th At Nashville

Coming into the ‘Music City’ for the 14th race of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, James Buescher was looking to continue his success for a third week in a row, as he captured back-to-back top-10 finishes at Kentucky Speedway and O’Reilly Raceway Park. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be, as Buescher was faced with an ill-handling No. 10 MaxxForce International Ford F-150, which resulted in a disappointing 17th-place finish Saturday night at Nashville Superspeedway. After slight rain showers delayed the start, Buescher started the 150-lap event from the 16th position. Quickly the 19-year-old radioed to his team that his Ford F-150 was tight center off and within a handful of laps, Buescher was running in the 20th position. On lap 30, the Raybestos Rookie of the Year Contender was caught by the leaders and put one lap down. The competition caution flew on lap 36 and crew chief Jamie Jones called Buescher to pit road for four fresh tires, followed by fuel and a track bar adjustment the next lap. The No. 10 truck restarted from the 21st position. Another caution on lap 52 allowed Buescher to receive the Lucky Dog Award and reclaim his position on the lead lap. The MaxxForce International Ford returned to pit road to top off with fuel and receive another track bar adjustment to help with the tight handling conditions. During the next green-flag run, Buescher worked his way to 16th-place by the time another caution slowed the field on lap 85. Making a strategic call, Jones called Buescher to the attention of his pit crew for right-side tires only, followed by fuel the next lap. This call allowed the Plano, Texas native to restart from the fourth position on lap 89. Buescher did not like the feeling of his Ford F-150 with only two fresh tires and slid back to 16th-place by lap 100. As another caution came out on lap 102 for precipitation, the Circle Bar Racing Ford returned to pit road for four fresh tires and a minor track bar adjustment, forcing Buescher to restart in the 19th position. During the final 45 laps, Buescher worked his way to 17th-place where he finished the 200-mile race. “Tonight was definitely not what we were hoping for,” said Buescher. “For some reason, we were never able to really get my No. 10 MaxxForce International Ford F-150 to handle the way I would have liked. We tried to take two tires there with 50 laps to go and my truck just didn’t react well to it. But, unfortunately you are going to have nights like these in racing and as much as I don’t enjoy them, you have to put it behind you and move on. We will take a couple of weeks off and regroup and then head to Bristol and look to grab another top-10 finish.” With his 17th-place finish, Buescher remains in the 15th position in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship point standings. He is currently only 65 points behind 14th-place Johnny Sauter and 142 points behind 10th-place Rick Crawford. James Buescher and the No. 10 MaxxForce International Ford F-150 team will take a well-deserved two-week hiatus before heading to “The World’s Fastest Half-Mile” on Wednesday, August 19th for the running of the O’Reilly 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Buescher will look to capture the trophy in “Thunder Valley” when the green flag drops shortly after 8:30 P.M. Eastern. SPEED will have live broadcast coverage of the 200-lap event, starting at 8:00 P.M. Eastern. Select affiliates of MRN Radio, along with Sirius-XM NASCAR Radio Channel 128 will also have the live radio broadcast.
