A little too “plain” for my taste, but she picked out what she wanted. Sleek, was the word, the fashion experts stated. Megan’s mother’s outfit looked nice, and she seemed so emotional. Prince Charles looks like time is not on his side…lol He has really aged! One thing about it, Prince Charles and Camilla definitely look so right and suited for each other. I will always be wowed, the most, by the memory of seeing Princess Diana getting married and her beautiful gorgeous wedding gown with that absolutely glowing tiara she wore. The minister wasn’t “wild” in his sermon, today, as they had said he would be, I thought it was fantastic, and how he carried on and on about the power of love. He is SO RIGHT about the power of love, nothing can compare to the power of love, not money, or anything else in this world. Right on! As for the celebrities in attendance, wow, George Clooney’s wife, Amal, looked stunning! That yellow mustard colored dress was a knock out on her. I love that color myself, but can hardly ever find anything in that color. What was with Victoria Beckham, as she looked mad as could be! Guess she wasn’t the center of attention, was what she was mad about…lol…. All these violins…..the old stuffy queen looked pretty nice in her green and purple outfit, and her old man, Prince Philip looked darn great to be 96 years old and recovering from surgery. I would just love to ride around in one of those English motor cars, they are so cool……….can’t say I appreciated the fact that Harry’s military uniform that he married in, was sewn from doe’s skin. Oh and the royal guard’s black hats are made from the fur of black bears ….ugh. I wonder what in the world, Megan’s ex-husband is thinking on this day in history? He is probably thinking, man, she really upgraded….lol Now, the horse drawn carriage ride. I bet Harry and Megan are thinking, somebody slap me, can’t be this happy! Reply I listened to the menu for the royal wedding and I was a bit taken back to hear cracklings on the menu. I thought that was chittlins but I was wrong. It is nothing more than plain old fried pork rinds….ha! And people made fun of Mama June and Sugar Bear’s redneck wedding for serving cheese doodles?….also on the royal list is free range chicken, some kind of beef from South Africa, waygu or something like that, quail eggs, lemon verbena something another, and that elderberry flavored lemon looking wedding cake. I was not impressed with that wedding cake. If that is supposed to serve the 600 guests, it ain’t happening. It was not very pretty, not very big, and was all over the place on several plates, and if that sucker does have 44 pounds of butter in it like reported, the vow “to death do we part” may come much sooner than expected”…..kidding of course, but 44 pounds of butter in that small of a wedding cake? The guests must be eating pure butter with a tad little bit of cake, lol Royal weddings of the past served seal, venison, and peacock on the menu….ugh…..Gayle King switched to another hat, a big green one that looked like a giant lily pad on top her head. I kept waiting for a frog to jump on it…..LOL Wow, this is all craziness, but fun. This talk about the wedding cake, has got me craving some Italian Wedding Cake, big time, as that is the best, I love Italian wedding cake….yum! And Joey is watching Dog Tales now on tv. Mama Mia Don’t worry, there will be plenty of time left to catch the milk and cookies today……… Mama Mia Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Mama Mia There forth history is being made, they are husband and wife! I wish them great happiness! I am up early this morning. I got up at four to watch the hoopla of the royal wedding. Gayle King is doing a great job covering the royal wedding. I hate the microphones I see the media people are wearing, I kept looking at Gayle thinking she had a big round black mole on her face, but it was her microphone near her mouth…..ha ha ha! At least today Gayle’s hat matches, as yesterday her hat and dress was a mismatch. That castle is something else! I love Harry. I hope ” Ms. Sparkle” doesn’t take Harry to the cleaners (financially, as he refused to sign a pre-nup agreement) and I hope she doesn’t break his heart somehow……I see Oprah Winfrey there, she has a nice hat, but she looks like a heavy weight once again. The diets must be off right now. I understand the minister that marries them is a “wild one” with his preaching, so I want to see this! Megan has arrived and she looks so thin! I think the marriage ceremony won’t start until about seven o’clock. I love to hear the English people talk, love their accents. Some of the spectators there along the route have said it is freezing, I don’t know, but I don’t see any heavy coats. I even see some sleeveless dresses on some of the women. With these fancy hats everywhere, it is like the Kentucky Derby all over once again. Reply Please enter your name here Reply Mama Mialast_img read more

Twiddle Covers ‘Rocky Raccoon’ In Syracuse Heater – Gallery/Setlist

first_imgLoad remaining images Twiddle kicked off their Plumperdump Winter tour with a weekend of sold out shows, and the band carried that momentum into last Saturday’s show at The Westcott Theater in Syracuse, NY.  The night featured opening acts Universal Transit based out of the Adirondacks and Syracuse locals The New Daze. Both openers were very well received by the large crowd in attendance, and both got the party brewing for Twiddle.Twiddle wasted no time, jumping into a stellar version of the crowd favorite “Syncopated Healing.” The lyrics “Shake your booty to the music let the grooves make you crazy, May the rhythm of your body put your mind at ease” resonated throughout the crowd for the evening, demonstrated by the ladies in the front row particularly. The band slid into one of the highlights of the night, “Every Soul,” off of their new album PLUMP. (Read the review here). This version is a must hear, demonstrating the band’s talent for jamming; a testament to how far these guys have come. The building was exploding with energy after this version, and the band rode this energy right into “Carter Candlestick.” Up next was a new tune of PLUMP, called “Five,” which featured Mihali Savoulidis on acoustic guitar. “Five” slowed things up a bit and gave both the band and crowd a breather. “Dr. Remidi’s Melodium” followed, and contained a “X-files” theme tease while showcasing Ryan Dempsey’s talents on keys and allowed Zdenek Gubb to dump his bass all over everyone lucky enough to be in attendance. A standard version of “Dusk ‘Til Dawn” followed “Remidi’s,” and featured Brook Jordan singing leading vocals.  It’s not often that Jordan sings, so it’s always a treat to hear the drummer vocally. The band ended the set with the fan-favorite, “Doinkinbonk!!!.” This song was one of the first songs written by bassist Zdenek Gubb, and features some of the funkiest bass lines to really demonstrate his talent. This is another must hear version, and one of the best jams from the evening.  The band stretched this version out and eventually they slid their way into a delicious “Funky Town” jam before segueing seamlessly back into “Doinkinbonk!!!.” Moments like this are what make Twiddle special and is a reason they are selling out venues all over the country. The guys weren’t quite finished yet, as the end of Doink segued into their elusive cover of The Beatles’ “Rocky Raccoon.” Fans could be heard singing along with the band. “Rocky” morphed into a YEM-like vocal jam and put the band’s Phish influences on display.  The show concluded with an encore featuring the bluegrassy tune “Hattibagen McRat,” sending fans out into the night begging for more.  The band is heading out for another three night run next weekend at Buffalo, Clifton Park, and NYC, and the shows are sure to sell out, so don’t miss them!Peep the setlist below, via uTwiddle.Setlist: Twiddle at The Westcott Theater, Syracuse, NY – 2/20/16One Set: Syncopated Healing, Every Soul, Carter Candlestick, Five, Dr. Remidi’s Melodium[1], Dusk ‘Til Dawn, Doinkinbonk!!! > Funky Town > Doinkinbonk!!!, Rocky Raccoon[2]Encore: Hattibagen McRatShow Notes: This show was a part of the “Plumperdump” 2016 Winter Tour.[1] “Dr. Remidi’s Melodium” contained a “X-Files” Theme tease.[2] “Rocky Raccoon” ended with a vocal jam. Check out the full gallery of images below, courtesy of Dave DeCrescente Photography:last_img read more

L.A. Museum Sued Over I.D.

first_imgThey had a contract.  The American Freedom Alliance (AFA), which takes no official position on Darwinism vs Intelligent Design but wanted to present both sides of what they considered an important public issue, was scheduled to show two films at the California Science Center’s IMAX Theater – one which assumes evolution, and one which argues against Darwin.  A press release from the Discovery Institute (which was sending some of its representatives for a follow-up panel discussion) somehow prompted the Center to cancel the contract, leaving the AFA scrambling to find another venue.  The event was held Oct. 25 to a smaller audience at USC with poorer projection facilities.  The AFA is suing the California Science Center for breach of contract.  They issued a press release on their AFA website (PDF format).  AFA President Avi Davis explained their case: “The Center is a public institution and our event was planned as a debate with both sides of the controversy represented.  It is Orwellian when a public institution tries to suppress particular ideas it deems unsavory.  It can be likened to a public library removing certain books from its shelves because the librarian disagrees with the viewpoints expressed in them.”  The lawsuit alleges that the Center “conspired to drop the event because they did not want the museum to be viewed as legitimizing intelligent design as a scientific theory,” and claims that pressure was brought to bear on the Center from the Smithsonian and other institutions to drop the event.    The AFA also held “The Darwin Debates,” a debate on the origin and evolution of life, at a theater in Beverly Hills on November 30, featuring Michael Shermer and Donald Prothero defending Darwin and Stephen Meyer and Richard Sternberg opposing.  A recording of this debate is available on the AFA website.    Mike Boehm at the Los Angeles Times reported on the lawsuit and what occasioned it, but presented a biased definition of intelligent design that its proponents would not accept:Intelligent design is the theory that an intelligent being, rather than impersonal forces such as Darwinian natural selection, is responsible for shaping life on Earth.  An overwhelming majority of scientists and science and natural history museums consider the theory of evolution to have been proved beyond a doubt by genetic and fossil evidence.  Critics of intelligent design have dismissed it as a superficially scientific cloak for the straightforwardly religious belief known as Creationism that’s anchored in a literal reading of the biblical Book of Genesis.The official definition of intelligent design seen on the Discovery Institute’s IntelligentDesign.org site states simply, “The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.”    John West at the Discovery Institute published a rebuttal to the LA Times article at Evolution News and Views explaining the Institute’s view of what transpired and why the California Science Center’s censorship of intelligent design was a big deal.  The previous day, Robert Crowther on Evolution News and Views explained the connection with the Smithsonian.OK, you have links to both sides of this dispute.  Are you going to trust one of the most left-wing newspapers in the country to give a fair report, when they can’t get the definition of I.D. right, and insist on misrepresenting the views of the plaintiffs?  As news develops about this lawsuit, we will report it, or you can go to the sites above for information.(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Astrobiology: The Joy of Being Wrong

first_imgAn astrobiologist looks forward to the day when everything he says is totally wrong.What makes a planet habitable? In a BBC News article, astrobiologist Christopher Watson (Queen’s University, Belfast) piles on the constraints:“Clouds are reflective and therefore will cool the planet, acting to push the habitable zone closer to the star.Just to complicate matters, the habitable zone also depends on the type of star the planet orbits.Red dwarfs like to chuck out large flares, stellar eruptions that release charged particles and X-rays. Given the close proximity of the planet, this might cause substantial atmospheric losses.High doses of radiation also tend to be harmful to biological material, and X-rays are capable of dissociating water – thereby depleting any water supply.Massive, hot stars are real gas-guzzlers. Yes, they may have far larger “fuel tanks” (they have a lot more mass to “burn”), but they gobble that fuel much, much faster, and die much younger than small, frugal cool stars.Based on our knowledge of how life evolved on Earth, it is unlikely that even simple life would have time to evolve around stars that are all that much hotter than our Sun.Well, we hit another issue – the fact that the variance in the amount of energy red dwarfs emit over their lifetime, known as their luminosity evolution, is quite drastic… a red dwarf may change its luminosity 10-fold!I haven’t even begun discussing some of the ‘rare-Earth’ arguments that point out a range of factors that affect the Earth that may be necessary for life, but that may be rare for other planets.These are things like the presence of Jupiter (which may or may not deflect asteroids and comets from striking the Earth)…or the presence of the moon (which may stabilise Earth’s spin).”Watson isn’t trying to be a spoil-sport; just a realist. But how realistic is his ending conundrum?The pace of discovery is astonishing and in 20 years’ time I suspect I will look back at this article and find I was totally wrong about everything.This is what progress is.That’s an odd way to define progress. It follows that 20 years after that, the ones who showed him he was wrong could be wrong themselves. An infinite regress looms.We’ll help him out. He’s totally right about the constraints on habitability, but he’s totally wrong that life emerges on a habitable world without purpose, plan, and intelligence to act on matter and create it. We just saved him 20 years by reading Isaiah 45:18-19.(Visited 23 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

National traits

first_imgJacob DlaminiThe advert in which Desmond Tutu exhorts South Africans to pull together to build the kind of country they each want to live in has got me thinking about national attributes and traits. What does it mean to say the Germans are punctual, the Italians expressive, the French elegant, the Zulus (on the few occasions they are actually considered a nation) fierce, the Japanese hardworking, the Nigerians confident and the Chinese proud?Does it mean that if Nigerians have one thing in common, it would be pride? What about calling the Italians expressive (which, as you know, is a polite way of saying excitable and hot-blooded)? Does that mean every Italian cannot make a point without using her arms? As for calling the French elegant, does that mean that every French citizen knows his Louis Vuitton from his Christian Dior?I cannot provide a scientific answer to any of these questions but have banked enough anecdotes in my short life to know that this business of national attributes is absolute tosh. Let’s take the myth of French elegance. I have visited France (both the metropole and one of its Caribbean peripheries) at least three times in the past couple of years. I have also spent two summers in a French language school whose main selling point is that its faculty is drawn from native French speakers from both the French metropole and the periphery. I would like to think that that’s enough French people and enough time in France to allow me to pass judgement on France’s sartorial standards.Do you know how many French people would, in my book, qualify for the adjective ‘elegant’? One. Yup. One. You read that correctly. Only one French person would qualify for the label ‘elegant’. And, boy, did she look elegant! She was the kind of person so hip, so stylish, she made flip-flops look like haute couture! She was so on top of her game, she made simple scarves look like they were made just for her.She was no spring chicken, either. She was on the other side of fifty, at least. As for her compatriots, the least said about them, the better. The colour clashes, the ball-crushingly tight pants, the sloppy hair, the apparent lack of familiarity with a shower … these were just some of the things that stood out for me.Then there is the one about the punctual Germans. Well, I recently spent a year studying in England. I had one German professor and one German classmate. None could keep time to save their Teutonic behinds. I would always smile at my German classmate as she burst into class huffing and puffing. She rode a bike and lived only a mile away from our campus. I, too, rode a bike but lived six miles away from campus. So, she could not exactly blame her tardiness on the traffic. “Aah, my tardy German friend,” I would say to her every now and again. She did not like it. But what could she do! She was tardy.My professor, on the other hand, always had to preface his seminars with the standard opening: “Sorry, I’m late.” Coming from someone else, that might have been annoying. But coming from a German, I loved it. I loved their constant shattering of the stereotype of the punctual German.Then there is the one about the proud Chinese. Now, pray tell, which people are not proud? Every nation has a history and, for that reason, every nation is both proud and confident. A friend has remarked that if only South Africans had half the confidence displayed by Nigerians, then we would be set. According to my friend’s thinking, Nigerians have little to be proud of given the unmitigated disaster that is postcolonial Nigeria.South Africans, on the other hand, have a lot to be proud of given the modest but significant achievements of post-apartheid South Africa, my friend says. However, she adds, South Africans do not carry themselves with quite the swagger that would be in keeping with their place in the world. My friend may well be right. South Africans can be their own harshest critics.After the British, no one seems to indulge in schadenfreude at their own expense quite like the South Africans. We seem to delight in our misfortune. Listen to the way we talk about crime, the power outages, the dysfunctional metropolitan police system and corruption. Listen to a South African moan for five minutes and you can’t help but wonder what he or she would have to moan about if you took away all these problems. Does that mean that complaining is a national South African trait? I don’t know and, given that I am, as a rule, suspicious of national traits, I would say there is no such thing as a national trait.But I also can’t be blind to the fact that South Africans tend to be the biggest complainers I know. Maybe, just maybe, instead of trying to appeal to the better angels of our nature, Bishop Tutu should urge us to be selfish South Africans and do whatever we can to build the kind of South Africa we each would like to live in. I would be willing to bet that such a cynical pitch would stand a better chance of success than the sunny call he is making at present.Hey, a working South Africa might mean less to moan about but it would least be the kind of place we each would want to live in. Isolated from other South Africans.Jacob Dlamini is a PhD student in History at Yale University, a columnist for The Weekender, and former political editor of Business Day.last_img read more

SA one step away from mining accord

first_img5 July 2013 Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe is confident that the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu), a key player in South African platinum, will join the other stakeholders in signing a groundbreaking pact to bring stability to the country’s mining industry. Amcu was the only party to this week’s industry talks – bringing together the government, organised labour and business – that did not sign the Framework Agreement for a Sustainable Mining Industry, saying that it needed to consult with its members. The agreement sets out key steps and processes that will see all parties working together to ensure the stability and sustainability of South Africa’s mining industry. As part of the agreement, parties will desist from provocation, violence and intimidation, and will actively discourage their members from taking the law into their own hands. The government, for its part, will act decisively to enforce the rule of law, maintain peace during strikes and other protests relating to labour disputes, and ensure the protection of life, property and the advancement of the rights of all. Amcu and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) have been at loggerheads over membership at the Lonmin Mine in North West province. Addressing the media after the signing of the agreement in Pretoria on Wednesday, Mothlanthe said he hoped it would bring about change for the better in the mining sector. Mothlanthe, who had been tasked with leading the talks by President Jacob Zuma, expressed confidence that Amcu would, after consulting with its members, come to the party and sign the agreement. “We are expecting Amcu to get back soon,” Mothlanthe said. Those that signed the agreement were the NUM, the Chamber of Mines, the Federation of Unions of SA, the Congress of SA Trade Unions, and Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu. Also present at the meeting was Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa, Justice and Constitutional Development Minister Jeff Radebe, and Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant.

SADC Special Force may be on the way

first_img8 July 2015A Southern African Development Community (SADC) standby force could soon be a reality, as a Special Forces planning conference in Kariba, Zimbabwe looks into the final logistics of its establishment, according to a report.Zimbabwe’s The Herald newspaper reported yesterday that the conference, which was attended by 66 delegates from the region, was also looking at mapping training exercises set to start next month.The exercises would help to mould a SADC Special Force, which would also contribute to the African Union standby force, the report said.The idea of the SADC Special Force was mooted in 2007 after regional countries resolved to contribute troops to defend member states from revolts and aggression.“The primary aim of training of this magnitude is centred on the need to build a highly trained and robust SADC Special Forces component that is capable of countering modern day threats whenever it is required,” Major-General Douglas Nyikayaramba, chief of staff administration in the Zimbabwean army, was quoted as saying.Training exercises had already been held in Angola and Namibia, the report said.This comes as SADC tackles political problems in Lesotho, Madagascar and Democratic Republic of Congo.As Africa moves to bolster its security, media reports in May said a continental peacekeeping force was on the way; 54 African countries met in Zimbabwe early this year to assess progress made towards its establishment.The idea of the African Standby Force was first mooted in 2008, with December as the deadline for setting it up.The military force would be responsible for maintaining peace and stability on the continent and to intervene in regional hotspots.Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

Net Neutrality Opponents Outspending Proponents More Than 4 to 1

first_imgTags:#news#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… marshall kirkpatrickcenter_img Companies opposed to Network Neutrality spent more than 4 times as much money on lobbying last quarter than organizations in support of it, according to a report on new hearings on the subject by watchdog organization Sunlight Foundation. Net Neutrality opponents spent $19.7 million in lobbying in the first quarter of 2010 -supporters only $4.7 million.Net Neutrality is a concept that means internet providers would be prohibited from limiting access to bandwidth based on the content being communicated. Beyond simple democracy, that Neutrality is argued to be important in order that unforeseeable and disruptive innovations can be built using less restricted bandwidth. The next YouTube in someone’s garage, it is said.Opponents of Net Neutrality argue that their substantial investment in bandwidth infrastructure and need to best serve all their customers necessitate that certain high-bandwidth activities be limited in some circumstances.See also: Towards a Value-Added User Data EconomyAccording to Sunlight, organizations supporting Neutrality at the latest Congressional hearings included “Google, Microsoft, Amazon.com and two service providers breaking with their industry, DISH Network and Sprint. Opponents included AT&T, Verizon, National Cable & Telecommunications Association, Communications Workers of America and the US Telecom Association.”While the long-running questions about potential legislation and legal rights is an important one, it is conceivable that technology could develop fast enough to change the terms of the debate. MIT scientists, for example, announced today that they have developed an experimental method of data transport that could make the internet 100 times faster. The scientists complain, however, that use cases for such speed improvements are unclear enough that demand, and thus support for their research, remains minimal.
