Cyber Monday, I love It (sarcasm) another coined term that should help $$ transfer from your pocket.

By Jon Lentz

NEW YORK, Nov 29 (Reuters) -The term Cyber Monday was coined five years ago for the day many people return to work after U.S. Thanksgiving Day and make online gift purchases on their computers.

More recently, retailers have been increasingly offering online deals on Thanksgiving itself and through the holiday weekend, as consumers regularly shop on the Internet.

This year, online spending on last Thursday's Thanksgiving Day rose 28 percent from a year ago to $407 million, according to analytics firm comScore. ComScore has forecast overall online sales for the holiday season, when most shopping is done between Thanksgiving and Christmas on Dec. 25, to rise 11 percent to $32.4 billion.

New Jaguar Concept @ 2010 LA Auto Show.....( ( ( Sweet ) ) )

Harry Potter is one for the fans!

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is a much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts.

Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort's immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort's Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort...alive.

Harry's only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale—the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns                                                                                           out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.

Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became "the Boy Who Lived." No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" is directed by David Yates, who also helmed the blockbusters "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." David Heyman, the producer of all of the Harry Potter films, produced the film, together with David Barron. Screenwriter Steve Kloves adapted the screenplay, based on the book by J.K. Rowling. Lionel Wigram is the executive producer.

Kate Bush...Wuthering Heights (Cutter Sane Video Remix)

Wuthering Heights from the Album The Kick Inside (1978). 

Out on the wiley, windy moors
We'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper, like my jealousy
Too hot, too greedy
How could you leave me?
When I needed to possess you?
I hated you, I loved you too

Bad dreams in the night
They told me I was going to lose the fight
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights

(Chorus) Heathcliff, its me, Cathy come home
I'm so cold, let me in-a-your window

Oh it gets dark, it gets lonely
On the other side from you
I pine alot, I find the lot
Falls through without you
I'm coming back love, cruel Heathcliff
My one dream, my only master

Too long I roam in the night
I'm coming back to his side to put it right
I'm coming home to wuthering, wuthering,
Wuthering Heights

Oh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
Oh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
You know it's me, Cathy

Senate OKs $1.15 billion measure settling claims feds discriminated against blacks, Indians.

  • NEW: Obama administration lauds step to settle discrimination claims by blacks, Indians
  • NEW: Officials are working to resolve similar lawsuits by women and Hispanics
  • The Senate approved a roughly $1.15 billion settlement for minority farmers, sources say
  • Black Farmers Association president calls the Senate action "long overdue justice"

Washington (CNN) -- The U.S. Senate approved a $1.15 billion measure Friday to fund a settlement initially reached between the Agriculture Department and minority farmers more than a decade ago.

The 1997 Pigford v. Glickman case against the U.S. Agriculture Department was settled out of court 11 years ago. Under a federal judge's terms dating to 1999, qualified farmers could receive $50,000 each to settle claims of racial bias.

"This is much long overdue justice for black farmers," said John Boyd, founder and president of the National Black Farmers Association.

President Barack Obama issued a statement applauding the Senate's decision and urging the House to follow-up on its efforts earlier this year, so he can sign the settlements into law. Officials are still working to resolve similar discrimination lawsuits filed against the U.S. Department of Agriculture by women and Latino farmers, according to Obama.

"While these legislative achievements reflect important progress, they also serve to remind us that much work remains to be done," Obama said.

In another statement, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack called the settlements "a major milestone in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's efforts to turn the page on a sad chapter."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, also said the vote gives "long-suffering Americans ... the closure that they deserve."

"The agreement that we reached shows what can happen when Democrats and Republicans come together to do the right thing," he said.

The measure was approved by unanimous consent.

The Senate also cleared -- in the same piece of legislation -- $3.4 billion to fund a separate settlement reached with the Department of Interior for mishandling of a trust fund managed for Native Americans. The bill also includes settlements for four water-right lawsuits filed by Native American tribes.

In July, the House approved a war supplemental bill that included money to pay for the settlements. At the time, however, the Senate failed to approve the measure.

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma, dropped an objection to the package this week after Senate leaders agreed not to finance it through additional deficit spending.

Prominent members of both parties have voiced support for paying out the settlements.

The measure will now have to be approved by the lame duck House before moving to Obama's desk to be signed into law.

CNN's Ted Barrett and Alan Silverleib contributed to this report.

I love the Crazy Target Lady ! ! ! 5 Commercials featuring the Funny Target Lady Maria Bamford.

Maria Bamford plays a demented shopper in new Target ads

The new Target holiday ads are out, and if you've been scratching your head, trying to figure out who that vaguely familiar-looking woman is who's playing that competitive and slightly demented Black Friday shopper, scratch no longer.

It's Maria Bamford, the cute but decidedly off-kilter stand-up comedian who is probably best known for participating in the Comedians of Comedy tour with Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis, and Brian Posehn. 

Most of the ads show Bamford playing the competitive shopper, pulling full Target carts uphill and sleeplessly decorating a gingerbread village in preparation for the store's big Black Friday sale. But in some of the spots, Bamford also plays the woman's more "normal" sister, who doesn't need to be there as soon as the doors open. Problem is, she also puts her wreath up using a staple gun. So how normal can she be?

Almighty Debt: A Black in America Special

Fighting debt from the pulpit?

October 22, 2010 11:15 a.m. EDT

From job fairs to seminars on credit counseling, many churches and religious institutions are not only caring for its congregation's spiritual life, but also taking an active role in its financial life, too.

In CNN's documentary "Almighty Debt: A Black in America Special," Soledad O'Brien explores how one church is helping its 7,000 parishioners survive the worst financial crisis for African-Americans since the Great Depression.

What do you think? Have you turned to the church or faith to help you through unemployment or homeownership struggles? Should churches play a role in helping its congregation through tough economic times?


Almighty Debt: A Black in America Special

"Debt is a bigger problem than racism." Those are pretty strong wordsThe documentary,  is part of the CNN's Black in America special series hosted by anchor and reporter Soledad O'Brien. It's followed by an engaging town hall meeting on the topic of debt in the Black community featuring Bishop T.D. Jakes, clinical social worker and public relations executive Terrie Williams, syndicated columnist Michelle Singletary, pollster Cornell Belcher and Rev. Soaries.

The harsh reality is that while a lot of Americans regardless of ethnic background are scrambling to get by today, Blacks have had it particularly bad in this our nation's biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression. CNN points out that in every leading indicator ---- unemployment, income, wealth, educational attainment, home ownership and foreclosures --- the African American financial situation is worse off than other segments of the U.S. population.

In exploring the issue of debt, Ms. O'Brien takes us to New Jersey's First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens, where Rev. Soaries preaches constantly and unswervingly about Black financial literacy and responsibility with the Bible as his backup. It's a compassionate yet no nonsense approach to spiritual uplift through self-empowerment. Stop buying what you can't afford! It puts you in bondage. That's Rev. Soaries's point. Hearing his unwavering philosophy about debt alone makes Almighty Debt worth watching.

Over the course of 90-minutes, Ms. O'Brien introduces us to three families ---- all members of First Baptist --- who are the cornerstones of the film. We meet the Jeffrieses, a luxury car salesman husband and his high-end real estate broker wife, who are on the brink of losing their 3,500 sq. ft. home. There's also Carl Fields, a former vice president at an insurance company who is desperately looking for work, and a Fred Philp, a high school student and aspiring actor who dreams of attending college, but lacks the finances and the grades to do so.

What's particularly compelling about this documentary is its discussion about the history of wealth distribution and the intersection of race in our country. "Wealth is a function of generational accumulation," is a point Julianne Malveaux, the economist and president of Bennett College, explains in Almighty Debt to give some perspective and context to why African Americans still trail in the wealth department. In other words, when you break it down, it's not surprising that descendants of former slaves would have less wealth than those who owned the slaves.

"This is the first time for any Black in America we've been able to sort of investigate the impact of these massive historical phenomena like slavery, Jim Crow, unfair labor practices in a documentary.Linking the issue of wealth today to slavery over a century ago may be difficult or less desirous for some to digest (and this piece only deals with the issue briefly).

Whole-grain, low-fat.
I know you wanna piece of that,
But I just wanna dance.

Ch-checkin' out my sweet hips,
My sugar-coated berry lips.
I know you wanna get with this,
But I'm just here to dance.

LA council weighs allowing 140 pot shops to reopen

The Associated Press

 The Los Angeles City Council has ordered the city attorney to draft a measure that would allow 140 medical marijuana dispensaries to reopen in the city.

The council approved the move Friday and will vote next week on an amendment to scale back the long-debated medical marijuana ordinance that passed earlier this year.

The ordinance allowed 180 dispensaries that had registered with the city before a 2007 moratorium to stay open. However, 140 of them were disqualified because they had management changes over the past three years.

Under the proposed amendment, dispensaries could reopen if they have at least one primary owner or manager from the initial registration.

If approved, the city clerk will review all registrations to determine those that qualify under the new amendment.

High Court won't lift military gay Ban 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell', Kagan does not take part

11/12/2010COMMENTS (0)


WASHINGTON, Nov 12 (Reuters Legal) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday refused to vacate the Ninth Circuit's stay of a ruling that strikes down the Pentagon's ban on allowing openly gay men and women from serving in the U.S. military.

The case was brought by the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights group. They sought to lift the judicial order that permits the Pentagon to continue enforcing its "Don't ask, don't tell" policy.

That policy, adopted in 1993, requires homosexual soldiers to keep their sexual orientation private.

The Log Cabin Republicans had won a district court ruling last month that found the policy was unconstitutional and barred the military from enforcing it. The Obama administration appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and won permission to continue enforcing it while that court reviewed the case.

The Log Cabin Republicans asked the Supreme Court to immediately lift the stay.

The request was made to Justice Anthony Kennedy because he is responsible for appeals from the Ninth Circuit. He referred it to the full court, which denied the request without comment.

In a potentially significant development, Justice Elena Kagan, who had been involved in the matter as solicitor general, did not take part in today's ruling. Kagan's absence means the conservative wing of the court would effectively prevail if the Supreme Court considers the case on the merits, said Lyle Denniston of SCOTUS blog. When the Court cannot reach a majority opinion, it issues a one-line decision affirming the lower court's ruling.

"You can assume pretty strongly that the Chief Justice, Scalia, Alito and Thomas will support the policy," said Denniston. "If Kennedy wants to strike it down, he will only have three other allies."

The policy has also been the subject of legislative debate. Obama and military leaders have said they want Congress to pass a new law rescinding "Don't ask, don't tell." While such legislation has passed the House of Representatives, it has been stymied in the Senate though lawmakers plan to try again next week.

The Supreme Court file is Log Cabin Republicans v. United States et al, no. 10A465. Daniel Woods of White & Case represented the petitioners while Neal Katyal, Acting Solicitor General, is listed as attorney for the respondents.

MIT & Princeton researchers figure out how cats drink. Yep. How cats drink. Lol

How a cat drinks: Feline finesse and fluid dynamics

A team of researchers from three U.S. universities has established that cats use an innate understanding of physics to drink.



Washington Post Staff Writer 
Friday, November 12, 2010

As all cat lovers know well, Felis domestica is a marvel of balance, subtlety and other hidden elegances.

Prepare to learn of another remarkable attribute: Four researchers have painstakingly filmed, analyzed and determined how it is that a cat can drink water while (unlike a dog) keeping its chin and whiskers pleasingly dry.

The answer involves an exquisite demonstration of physics: The cat, in effect, balances the forces of gravity against the forces of inertia, and so quenches its thirst.

While a dog curls its tongue like a ladle to collect the water and then pull up what it can, a cat curves its tongue under and slightly back, leaving the top surface of the tip of the tongue to lightly touch the liquid. The cat then raises its tongue rapidly, creating an upward mini-stream of water. The cat snaps its mouth shut and the water is captured before the countervailing force of gravity pulls it down.

An average house cat, the team found, can make four of these mini-streams per second.

"What we found is that the cat uses fluid dynamics and physics in a way to absolutely optimize tongue lapping and water collection," said Jeffrey Aristoff, now at Princeton University but who was one of the four researchers who began the study out of curiosity at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.


"Nobody had ever studied it before, so nobody knew how the water went from the bowl into the cat's mouth," he said. Not surprisingly, they found that cats lap at precisely the rate that would get them the most water for the effort expended. The team's results are described in an article released Thursday by the journal Science.

As with most basic scientific research, the ultimate usefulness of this knowledge is uncertain. But it is not, the researchers say, hard to imagine some downstream applications, perhaps in robotics.

Something as complex as a cat drinking water doesn't get unraveled and turned into a paper at the nation's top science journal overnight. It was almost four years ago that Roman Stocker, an associate professor at MIT's department of civil and environmental engineering, became interested in how his cat, Cutta Cutta (or "Stars Stars" translated from an Australian aboriginal language), drank. His enthusiasm spread to Aristoff, Sunghwan Jung, now an engineer at Virginia Tech, and Pedro Reis, a physicist who works on the nature of soft solids at MIT.

"Science allows us to look at natural processes with a different eye and to understand how things work, even if that's figuring out how my cat laps his breakfast," Stocker said. "It's a job, but also a passion, and this project for me was a high point in teamwork and creativity. We did it without any funding, without any graduate students, without much of the usual apparatus that science is done with nowadays."

The four researchers went to several zoos to observe and film tigers, jaguars, lions and ocelots, and went to YouTube to find videos of bobcats, cheetahs, leopards and lionesses drinking in the wild.

They found the same basic drinking mechanism in all the cats, though the larger ones (with larger tongues) slowed their lapping to best take advantage of the physics at play - that is, the balance between upward movement of the water set off by the cat's tongue (the inertia) and the gravity pulling the water down. A lion, Aristoff said, laps about two times per second.

"In the beginning of the project, we weren't fully confident that fluid mechanics played a role in cats' drinking," said Jung, whose research focuses on soft bodies, such as fish, and the fluids surrounding them. "But as the project went on, we were surprised and amused by the beauty of the fluid mechanics involved in this system."

Aristoff explained the dynamics at work: You're in the shower and turn on the hot water. The steam starts to rise, and that upward flow lowers the pressure levels at your knees. The result is that the inside of the shower curtain will billow in toward you, unless you have some weight attached to the curtain to stop it. That interplay of motion and pressure parallels the dynamic that quenches the cat's thirst.

Although the work on cat drinking was done for professional pleasure - it wasn't funded by a grant, and the only expense was high-quality video cameras - the researchers said there could be useful implications gleaned from their "fundamental" research.

Engineers, for example, are moving into the field of "soft robots" and are working on the basic properties of nonmetallic parts that may play a role. Aristoff said there's great interest in creating robots that can walk on water, and this research could help.

This new cat-drinking research follows by 70 years related work done by Harold "Doc" Edgerton, who first used strobe lights to capture stopped action on film. His photography, which uncovered some of the secrets of how cats drink, was featured in an Academy Award-winning short called "Quicker'n a Wink." The four current-day researchers used equipment at an MIT center for high-speed photography named after Edgerton, who was a much-honored MIT professor of electrical engineering for five decades.

Give Me A Break !! ! ! Google's Veterans Day Logo Is Making Crazy People Crazy

Google's Veterans Day Logo Is Making Crazy People Crazy

First Posted: 11-11-10 02:28 PM   |   Updated: 11-11-10 02:44 PM

Happy Veterans Day, to one and all, but especially to the folks over at Google, who thought they'd commemorate the occasion by altering their logo to suit the occasion, only to be reminded that the world is full of people who are crazy and freaked-out on a 24-hour basis about Sharia law!

Google's design today uses the staff of a waving American flag as the "L" in its name, which means Old Glory itself obstructs the "E" in it's name, leaving most of the letter obscured, save for the OMGZ ISLAM CREEPING CALIPHATE TAKEOVER CRESCENT, obviously.

Just look at this terrifying logo:

And thus we manufacture the only thing Americans make anymore: screaming-meemie controversy. This one guy at Associated Content surveyed all of the "Tweets via Twitter" that have, thus far, been twat:

Reactions on Twitter have ranged from shock to disappointment at Google's choice of doodle designs for Veterans Day.

LaughTech on Twitter enlarged the logo and set its caption as "Google says, 'Happy Veterans Day, Islam'".

AdrianTweeting makes a similar observation: "The Veterans Day Google logo kind of makes the "e" on the end look like a sinister Islamic crescent lurking behind the flag. Unfortunate."

RL from Product-Reviews.net sums up the outrage perfectly, "An American flag covering a partial showing Islamic crescent moon...good job GOOGLE...way to do your part to further fan the flames of tension between the western world and the Islamic community. Lets see how you play dumb and spin this."


Exactly. Way to go, Google. Give crazies such as Pamela Geller, Terry Jones and Tea Party patriots the fuel they need to wage an all-out slugfest of vitriol against Islam for ruining an American tradition. The Google doodle is distasteful at best, hateful at worst, for this Veterans Day.


And things get rather screechily self-righteous from there:

Your Google doodle is supposed to enlighten and educate those who click on it, not cause a rift between two world powers.

Good lord, dude, IT IS THE LETTER "E." Many episodes of Sesame Street were sponsored by this letter.

Anyway, this is your periodic reminder that not everyone successfully reaches Piaget's formal operational stage of cognitive development.
