Movement to retire 23

A couple of nights ago, the NBA got a little treat from one of its most prolific stars: LeBron James.  On top of his exceptional play, as always, last season’s NBA MVP came out and said he will be changing his jersey number from 23 to 6 next season.  His reasoning? Michael Jordan’s number should be retired by the NBA, from every team.

Mockery of mockery: ABC’s “Crash Course”

ABC’s “Crash Course,” a show designed around making fun of ‘regular’ Americans trying their luck at what the network has deemed an “outrageous” obstacle course, premiered tonight.

All I have to say is, what was ABC thinking? Who approved this show? Who, if you want to get right down to it, thought that this show would make any money/get a serious viewer following? Honestly?

Moronic murderer, cancelled reality show… What else is new?

Ever heard of a murder so gruesome — and strange, but I’m still getting to that part — that the only way to identify the victim’s body was to check the serial number on the breast implants? Sure you have. It happened not even 10 days ago and it’s been all over the news — not to mention Blogosphere — ever since.

Of course, I’m talking about Ryan Jenkins, the man married to bikini model Jasmine Fiore who is now a suspect in his wife’s unthinkable murder.

Moderate drinkers: Big belly, no, big bucks, yes

No, you don’t have to go back and read the headline a second time because, yes, you read it correctly the first time. According to two new studies, drinking moderate amounts of alcohol will not, I repeat, will not give you that infamous beer belly or equate you to middle to lower class, all-American man Hank Hill sitting in your front yard, admiring your latest mow job with a cold beer cracked and gripped in your hand. In fact, it might mean just the opposite.

The first of the two studies took place over the course of eight years, taking more than 20,000 beer drinkers and their beer-boasting habits into review. The results: although heavy drinkers were shown to put on some weight, it wasn’t necessarily on, around, or even near the belly.

More on Jackson memorial service mayhem

Registration for the lottery for a chance at a ticket to see Michael Jackson’s memorial service at the downtown Staples Center arena in Los Angeles closed yesterday, along with many people’s hope at winning a ticket.

At the closing of the registration, 1.6 million people managed to get through the almost constant “server unavailable” messages that popped up after hitting “submit,” as reported by ABC News.

Only 17,500 tickets will be selected, and that’s going to mean a lot of unhappy fans, at least 1.5 million of them. And in case you happen to be in that bunch, the memorial service will be broadcast on ABC News live at 1 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 7.

Madoff’s 150-year sentence

Bernie Madoff played uncle to the world’s rich.  He comforted those who had family struggles, promised great things to the Hollywood elite, and controlled a mass of wealth at $171 billion.  And all he asked for in return was your trust.

That’s when Uncle Bernie slid the knife into his clients’ backs.

Mass media makes a mockery of parenting

There has been a slew of news material since the start of the year about the parenting and child care choices of our sometimes questionable ‘celebrities.’  We’ve had the octo-mom and her welfare lifestyle even prior to giving birth to the human version of a litter.  All of the possible exploitation of her kids and trying to secure a reality TV show and other possible ways of raising her pack of future voters when she decides to run for mayor.

Then there’s the countless adoptions of Angelina Jolie and the new births of kids named Apple, Martini, Dewdrop, Lollygag, and whatever else the Hollywood folk can deem to punish their unwitting children before they learn to speak.

But what perhaps is the biggest mockery of the celebrities and their somewhat questionable habits is one that isn’t questionable at all.  Kate Gosselin, from the first successful venture in a real life Brady Bunch family setting, Jon and Kate Plus Eight, was caught on camera spanking one of her kids by the paparazzi.  The child was blowing a whistle while her mother was on the phone and was asked to stop, but continued anyway.  Doing what parents have been doing up until recently when children began to receive more rights than educated, well-meaning adults, she disciplined the child.  There is a saying: “Spare the rod, spoil the child.”

Microsoft uses search engine to find legitimacy

When you think of search engines what is the first one that comes to your mind? If you are like millions of other Americans you’ll probably say either Google or Yahoo. Did you even know that Microsoft had a search engine? It’s called Live Search. (Sound familiar now? It’s the one that gets crappy results in comparison to its counterparts.) Well, Microsoft is hoping to change your mind.

Microsoft plans to introduce their new search engine, (nick-named) Kumo, within the next few weeks. It will only be introduced at D:All Things Digital Event. But by the way that Google and Yahoo’s new add-ons look, Microsoft may want to work on it a little bit. (more…)

Massachusetts making fast food fitter

Sadly, it may not come as a shock to discover that more than one-third of U.S. adults (that’s 72 million people!), and 16 percent of U.S. children are not just overweight, but obese, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In an attempt to combat these frightening statistics, Massachusetts is preparing to administer some of the most stringent restaurant menu labeling rules in the country on Wednesday, which will require fast-food chains to list how many calories are in the food they sell.

According to Fox News, the state’s Public Health Council will vote on Wednesday whether to make fast-food chains list the calorie counts of their menu items on their menus or menu boards.

Making Mary J. legal

The idea of legalizing marijuana in the U.S. has been floating in the air for decades. Now that the economy is in the toilet trying to maintain its grip for another impending flush, legislatures are seeking any possible way to raise money.

According to a report on Fox News, Democratic state Assemblyman Tom Ammiano says that legalizing marijuana for adults over the age of 21 and taxing it at $50 an ounce could bring a state more than $1 billion a year.

Will $1 billion make much of a difference? Well, that’s just the tax money that could be raised from legalization. What about all the money that could be saved?
