Continuing its mission to bring music back to television, AXS TV will showcase the television premiere of Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day concert film.  Recorded live at London's O2 Arena on December 10, 2007, the film captures a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band's signature blues-infused rock 'n' roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin. Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalog including landmark tracks "Whole Lotta Love," "Rock And Roll," "Kashmir," and "Stairway To Heaven." Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band's first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery.
The historic concert will premiere on AXS TV CONCERTS, Sunday, Nov. 24 at 8-10 p.m. ET (5-7 p.m. PT). There will be encore broadcasts every night of the week at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from Monday, Nov. 25 through Thursday, Nov. 28, Thanksgiving. The concert premiered theatrically last year and is also available on Blu-Ray, DVD, CD, vinyl, and digital download, but has never been seen on television prior to its debut on AXS TV.

Your fans are worried. You decided to make a change and fire Rob Ryan last year. You allowed the boys to move from the 3-4.
You look like you haven't had fiber in a while.
And as your loyal fans, we're beginning to worry that you are going to do something drastic. Please do not move up in the draft to get Johnny Football.  Please get Sean Lee & Morris Clairborne some help. You are approaching Al Davis NUTSO territory. One sign of you wearing a sweat suit and as fans we're demanding someone else take over.

Admit you were an idiot for firing Rob Ryan.

Then step down as GM and enjoy drinking in the owners box.

Let your head coach do his job without the fear of you making another crucial mistake.

You may be leading the division but Tony Romo isn't giving up 400+ yards of offense and the defense needs help NOW.

Get off your ass and stop floating the , "I'm going to hire a new Head Coach rumor."

Please. The FANS ARE BEGGING YOU!

Draft Defense or resign as GM!

The U.S. hasn’t hosted an Olympics since the 2002 Winter Games. Right now the United States is in the middle of its longest stretch between hosting since 1932 and 1960.

Right now with the recent Boston World Series win, the city of Boston wants to host the games. I've been through Massachusets and my only response is HELL NO! I just don't see it happening. Too much to build and too much political graft to get through.

But why not the Dallas-Ft Worth area?

You have Jerry World for the opening ceremonies, plenty of arenas and facilities around the DFW area to host differing events, and it would be the kick in the ass that the area needs to get serious about new construction of infrastructure that would benefit the DFW area for years after the Olympics leave.

This isn't a money maker. Let's make that PERFECTLY clear. Very few Olympics ever see a profit.

But if you can build the infrastructure that would help in the future for the area it would be truly benefitial.

That's what I think, what say you?

A 57-year-old woman in Italy who went to the doctor with inflamed sinuses and facial pain had an unusual diagnosis: a dental implant in the sinus.

The woman had undergone oral surgery about two years before to place an implant — a 2-centimeter long (0.79 inch) metal screw designed to hold in place a replacement for a missing tooth — in her upper jaw. But surprisingly, an inspection of her mouth revealed the implant was not there. Instead, the gums covering the area of her missing tooth were healed, and her remaining teeth were healthy.

A CT scan showed the implant to be in her sinus cavity, next to her left eye. The researchers performed surgery to remove the dental implant, after which the woman's sinus symptoms went away. Eight months later, she remains healthy, according to the report of the case published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine. 

The researchers said the implant may have been wound up her sinus because of improper positioning, or as a consequence of tissue around the implant eroding, as well as bone loss.

So, was she feeling a little screwy?

Would-Be Thieves Arrested After Listening To Chicago Restaurant Owner Who Told Them To Rob Him Later...




Two Chicago men who were trying to rob a restaurant got fooled by the owner, who told them to rob his establishment in a few hours and then called the police on them when they returned.

The would-be thieves, Mario Garcia, 39, and Domingo Garcia-Hernandez, 28, first showed up at the West Rogers Park restaurant on Sunday night at the peak of the restaurant’s business hours, according to MSN Now.

They are now rotting in jail.

Punter Keeps $1m Casino Prize After Names Mix-up

www.onlinepoker.net

The Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati may disagree, however, as Saturday at the gambling venue proved a very lucrative day to specifically be called Kevin Lewis. You see, by chance, there were actually two unrelated Kevin Lewis’ in the casino that night, but by the time the casino realized it had handed out its ‘Summer Giveaway’ prize worth $1 million to the wrong one, he had already collected his money, spoken to the media and accepted congratulations from his fellow guests.
Nevertheless, after such an embarrassingly monumental howler it didn’t take long for the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati to bite the bullet and decide to grant both Kevin Lewis’ the huge jackpot. As the casino’s Senior VP Kevin Kline, explains: ” This was our blunder. So, consistent with our commitment to do the right thing for our guests, Horseshoe awarded a $1 million dollar prize to each of the men.”
OOPS.  John Smith, John Smith, please collect your prize here.
Horseshoe Casino did the right thing and give the prize to both men though. Whew. A step away from being enshrined in the Rock 101.1 Moron Hall of Fame

Widow of fallen Arizona Hotshot firefighter seeks death benefits

The young widow of a firefighter who died with 18 others while battling an Arizona wildfire in June has reportedly been denied the lifetime benefits she sought to raise the couple’s four children.
This is the same thinking that plagues this county.  Do a job, but we're going to hide behind legalese to keep you from getting benefits.  "Oh by the way, you should have talked to your husband better?"  What kind of ASSHATS are running this place?  Do a job, die and we'll forget about you.

Will bigger jets bring bigger business to Lubbock?

www.KCBD.com

When my mom flew into Lubbock the 1st time, she got off (with a broken foot) and hobbled her way to me. "This seems nice" she said about Lubbock. "Clean airport, nice people".  But that changed when they brought in the "puddle jumpers" as she called them. She hated the SAAB's and shortly thereafter started driving to Lubbock. Maybe she'll start flying again now that American has brought real planes to Lubbock.

University of Iowa named nation’s top ‘Party School’

blogs.desmoinesregister.com

The Princeton Review announced this afternoon that the Iowa City college ranked No. 1 on its list of top party schools. The university finished in second place last year. The school also ranked No. 1 on a list dubbed “Lots of Hard Liquor.” In total, the book — titled “The Best 378 Colleges” — includes 62 ranking lists. All the rankings are based on student surveys. Questions for the “Party Schools” list centered on the use of alcohol and drugs on campus, the popularity of fraternities and sororities, and the number of hours students reported studying each day, according to a letter sent to the university last week by a Princeton Review publicist.
OHHhhhh it's based on lack of hours studying. We rock at studying! Never mind...

Slightly less, 56 per cent, rated men’s barbecue skills and 73 per cent said men can change a tire. Just over half rated men’s ability to drink alcohol.

According to this useless survey
TOP 10 SKILLS MEN LACK

1.Buying clothes for partner 52 per cent
2. Remembering anniversary 41 per cent
3. Dancing 33 per cent
4. Ironing 31 per cent
5. Cooking 30 per cent
6. Domestic chores 30 per cent
7. Buying gifts 28 per cent
8. Multi-tasking 22 per cent

No Bull: Pamplona-inspired bull run coming to U.S. cities  - NY Daily News

www.nydailynews.com

Thrill-seekers will soon be running with the bulls when they’re unleashed in several cities across the country, officials said.The Pamplona-inspired Great Bull Run will begin an eight-state tour after a wild, man-vs.-beast event at a drag-racing strip just south of Richmond, Va., on Aug. 24, organizers said. About 5,000 people have already signed up for the inaugural bull run, despite the high risk for injury or death. Since 1924, 15 people have been killed in the famed San Fermin festival in Spain — which Jets coach Rex Ryan ran in last month. The most recent death was in 2009, when a 27-year-old man was gored in the neck and chest by a rogue bull named Capuchino.

4-year-old mayor is re-elected in northern Minn.

www.theindependent.com

Anyone could vote as many times as they like for $1 a vote at any of the ballot boxes in stores around town. The proceeds go toward organizing the festival.Bobby was only 3 when he won election last year. His mother, Emma Tufts, said she and her son, who turns 5 in October, got choked up when his name was pulled for re-election Sunday.The boy picked a random man out of the crowd to pick the name out of a clear tub. and the man was blindfolded twice, she said.While this was happening, Bobby told the crowd how to musky fish, she said."He's been going since 3 o'clock yesterday with cameras on his face," she said Sunday afternoon. "He's having a long day but he's done really well. I'm surprised."Asked how he felt during a phone interview, a tired Bobby made clear he was done answering questions. "I want to be with the boys," he told his mother.They were on their way to dinner and then planned to go fishing or have a bonfire to celebrate. Bobby, of nearby Nevis, starts preschool this fall.Emma Tufts said her son's agenda includes raising money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley in Fargo, N.D., and a new welcome sign for Dorset, which bills itself as the Restaurant Capital of the World.
So the better question is , how is this any different than the current City Council? Would a preschooler have less political pressure than those having to deal with the LP&L crisis?

Thieves are able to unlock more than 25 percent of PIN-protected accounts by trying just 20 combinations out of a possible 10,000, according to a recent study.

Some systems lock an account if someone makes too many wrong guesses. But if a thief can guess the PIN in just a few tries because it's "1234," they can clean out an account.

Is your birthdate your pin? BAD IDEA!  What about your year of birth? EVEN WORSE!

Other bad numbers are those associated with famous movies, such as "2001" or "0070" for James Bond. A book title like "1984" is a bad idea, too.

The best PINs are random numbers with no special significance. Even though they're hard to remember, it could be worth it if a hacker attacks. The least-used PIN is "8068." However, hackers can read, too, so use caution when picking a PIN. In other words, don't change your pin to 8068!

The top 10 most-used PIN numbers are:

 

  1. 1234
  2. 1111
  3. 0000
  4. 1212
  5. 7777
  6. 1004
  7. 2000
  8. 4444
  9. 2222
  10. 6969
Also, as much as you love us 1011 probably isn't the best pin either, which reminds me to change my pin now that I just told you what mine is. DAMMIT JANET!

Rare condition makes James Bond theme music ‘orgasmic’ for man who suffered stroke | National Post

news.nationalpost.com

Canadian researchers are reporting only the second-known case of a patient who developed synesthesia after a stroke — a bizarre brain phenomenon where stimulation of one sense triggers others. Nine months after suffering a stroke in the summer of 2007, the 45-year-old Toronto man began noticing that words printed in a sky blue typeface revolted him; words written in yellow were only mildly better. The sound of high-pitched brass instruments — specifically, the theme music from the James Bond films — elicited feelings of euphoria that the patient described as “orgasmic,” as if he could “ride the music.” The Bond music also provoked blue flashes of light in his peripheral vision, researchers from Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital report in the journal, Neurology. The patient was convinced he was losing his mind.

Vernon Peterson of Unity Funeral Home told authorities that he found what appeared to be stab wounds on Worley's back as he prepared the body for burial, Harnett County investigators stated in an affidavit for a search warrant. The body was then sent to a medical examiner for an autopsy."We all were in agreement that this was something a lot bigger than a traffic accident," Peterson said Tuesday. "There are wounds that I think about with an accident, but these wounds that we saw were not consistent with damages from an automobile accident."Highway Patrol officials said the standard protocol is for a medical examiner to transport any fatality in a vehicle crash to a hospital or morgue before the body goes to the funeral home.

In at Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, cocktail waitresses are not just drink servers. They are, in the opinion of New Jersey judge Nelson Johnson, “sex objects.” The casino calls its waitresses the “Borgata Babes.” Their job description is “part fashion model, part beverage server, part charming host and hostess. All impossibly lovely.” When the Borgata hires a new babe, it puts her on the scale, then requires her to weigh in periodically throughout her career to ensure that her weight does not increase by more than 7 percent of her initial poundage. If it does, the casino reserves the right to suspend the babe until she slims down.Last week, 22 of these babes lost a lawsuit against the casino. They had alleged that the Borgata discriminated against them based on both weight and sex. Male servers at the Borgata, they said, are not judged on their babeliness, or their poundage. But Judge Johnson found that the Borgata’s requirements were legal because the babe label was applied to a waitress with “that person’s participation.” He wrote, “Plaintiffs cannot shed the label ‘babe’; they embraced it when they went to work for the Borgata.” If you take a job as a babe, you better stay a babe. Even if the casino admits that its standard for loveliness is an “impossible” one.

A US judge has ordered more than $1 million be returned to a woman who saved it a dollar at a time as an exotic dancer.The money was confiscated by police in Nebraska during a routine traffic stop, US ABC News reports.The money belongs to Tara Mishra, 33, who put aside her earning for 15 years from when she began dancing at age 18. She planned to use the money to begin a business and leave stripping behind.The money was seized by state police in March 2012 when they pulled over friends of Mishra, Rajesh and Marina Dheri, for speeding. The Dheris were in possession of the cash in order to purchase a nightclub in New Jersey that would be half-owned by them and half-owned by Mishra. Police suspected the money, tied with hair bands in $10,000 bundles and stored in plastic bags, was the proceeds from drug dealing. It was discovered in the boot when a search was performed on the Dheri’s rented car."The government failed to show a substantial connection between drugs and the money," US District Judge Joseph Bataillon wrote in his judgment. "The court finds the ... story is credible ... Ms Mishra did have control over the money and directed the Dheris to deliver the money to New Jersey for the purchase of the business."Judge Bataillon ordered Mishra receive cash or a check in the value of US$1,074,000 with interest.

John Morillo, a 47-year-old Canadian man, apologized today for causing an international incident last night when he drank eight beers and then swam across the Detroit River, just to prove to his friends he could.Speaking to the Windsor Star after being released from jail this morning, Morillo said in retrospect it was "really stupid" of him to drunkenly swim across the river, but not without adding that he wanted his incredulous buddies to know he'd pulled it off (emphasis ours):If I’m going to be in the paper, I’d at least like them to say I actually made it, even though I got in trouble and everything. I gotta pay fines and stuff. But I don’t want it to sound like I didn’t make it, because then my buddies are going to say 'ha, ha, you didn’t make it.' Because that was the whole thing, to show them I could do it.Morillo's stunt launched a joint search mission between the Canadian and U.S. coast guards when his neighbor called the police after losing sight of him in the water. Rescue efforts included three boats and a helicopter. Morillo, who calls himself a "strong swimmer," had made it across the river and was on his way back when the U.S. Coast Guard found him floating on the Canadian side at around 1 AM, two hours after he'd initially entered the water.Windsor authorities have banned Morillo from all waterfront city property and will fine him $5,000 for swimming in a shipping channel. Exacerbating everything, Morillo, who was ultimately charged with being intoxicated in public, says his mom is very mad at him. "She just hung up on me," Morillo told the Star. "She said 'you’re just so stupid.'"

Everybody out of the pool, and fast

The cleaning process starts with vacuuming the area, Lanahan said. The pool is then superchlorinated to disinfect, which lasts as long as it takes for the chemicals to dissipate."Our fecal accident procedure ... is different for a solid mess or a liquid mess," she said, adding the latter is more difficult and increases the time everyone is out of the pool.After the three accidents, the town recreation department sent an email to residents asking parents to accommodate children who say they need to use the bathroom. The email also said young children should wear swim diapers and everyone should stay out of the pool if they have diarrhea.

After investigating the incident, deputies determined that Bynes met the criteria for a 5150 welfare hold, or an involuntary psychiatric hold.Sgt.

Federal Officials Can’t Guarantee N.H. Tax Evader Compound Up For Auction Isn’t Booby Trapped

http://talkingpointsmemo.com

Federal officials preparing to sell the New Hampshire compound of a tax-evading couple convicted of amassing an arsenal of weapons can’t guarantee that explosives and other booby traps aren’t hidden on the 103-acre spread.In fact, they will openly warn bidders that land mines might be planted throughout Ed and Elaine Brown’s bucolic property in the small town of Plainfield. And they say prospective buyers won’t be allowed on the grounds until they submit a winning bid that frees the government of liability for dismemberment or death.“It’s going to be a very interesting sale,” said Chief U.S. Deputy Marshal Brenda Mikelson, who’s in charge of the auction.The Browns, who do not recognize the federal government’s authority to tax its citizens, were in a nine-month standoff with authorities in 2007 after they were sentenced to five years in prison for tax evasion. U.S. marshals posing as supporters arrested them peacefully.

Belly-flops can cause injuries

http://www.cnn.com

Believe it or not, some people have made a profession out of this.Darren Taylor, aka "Professor Splash," professionally jumps from high ledges, landing belly-down in a small pool of water. Even reality shows have caught on to the entertainment value of a well-executed belly-flop; ABC's "Splash" features celebrities executing dives poorly.For those of us who may not be the best divers, there is good news: Belly-flops rarely cause serious injuries. That said, let's talk about what can happen, other than a bruised ego.The higher you jump or dive from, the faster you will hit the water. Some experts believe that you can reach speeds of up to 40 mph diving from a 10-meter board (almost 33 feet). And as nice as the water feels when you are in it, it does not act that way when you enter it at a high speed. 
Duh people. When you are 8 belly flops are cool. When you are 43, they hurt like hell!

Most players, CURRENT players are joining the Ed O'Bannon lawsuit and if they win, I predict the end of the NCAA.
The O'Bannon suit has sought damages for current athletes for some time. But until now, the plaintiffs were comprised of former college athletes, mostly in men's basketball, such as O'Bannon, Bill Russell and Oscar Robertson.Adding the new plaintiffs attempts to address Wilken's position about the injunctive class, which includes active athletes and seeks damages from current lucrative TV contracts in college sports. The plaintiffs want a 50-50 split of television revenue, saying money generated by the licensing and sale of class members' names temporarily can be held in trust until their college career ends.If Wilken certifies the suit as a class action, thousands of former and current football and men's basketball players could join the case and potentially change how college athletes are compensated. Certification would also put the NCAA in the position of facing billions of dollars in damages if it lost the suit at trial.

For nearly two days in March, ambulances and patients' families calling the San Diego hospital heard nothing but busy signals.The hospital had become a victim of an extortionist who, probably using not much more than a laptop and cheap software, had single-handedly generated enough calls to tie up the lines.

Jamboree applicants with a BMI — a measure of body fat determined through height and weight — of 40 or higher were deemed ineligible. Those who fell between 32 and 39.9 faced providing additional health information to Jamboree medical staff.Nationally, about 17 percent of children ages 2 to 19 are considered obese — triple the rate from a generation earlier, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.“We required a level of fitness in order to come to the Jamboree that we haven’t required before,” McCarthy said. “And that has motivated an enormous return in terms of both kids and adults getting serious about improving their health.”Soon, the Scouts will know why. Besides offering a whole lot of fun, dozens of venues will test their physical skills and fitness.

The film raises a serious question: Could a sharknado happen in real life? Animals often get caught in the paths of tornadoes, but they typically die before they get the chance to harm Tara Reid. An Associated Press report from 1969 describes a Florida tornado that swept through Ocean World. Rather than emboldening the sharks and inspiring heightened, Tara Reid-related bloodlust, the tornado sent the startled animals diving for cover at the bottom of their shallow pool. "We haven't counted the sharks yet," the Ocean World president told the press as his team frantically checked up on the park's valuable fish. In the end, his team had no sharknado to report. Furthermore, even if a sharknado were to somehow form and begin chasing Tara Reid, it is improbable that the whirlwind of shark would pose a danger to humans beyond accidental crushing. (Sharks rarely ever hurt people, and you're more likely to get maimed by your own toilet than by any species of shark.)

Police say when the real homeowner arrived home she found the door wedged open.“She backed away and started to call 911 when a man came to the door and asked her to come in.  He basically invited her into her own home,” said Knight.When police arrived to the home, the suspect Montego Logan, remained in a welcoming mood. Police say Logan invited officers inside and claimed he lived in the home before things turned violent.“When officers asked for proof of him living in the house, he became combative and ultimately they got him into custody,” said Knight.According to the police report, while in custody the suspect went from being “calm and sleepy to hallucinating and delusional.”At one point the suspect believed that one of the arresting officers, five years younger than him, was his grandma."

What can Beijing actually do about Android? NOTHING YET! 
The first hints were released in a government white paper in March that urged local Internet firms like Baidu, Huawei, Alibaba to develop their own operating systems or at least an independent variant of Android. But such offerings are probably years away.In the meantime, NSA submissions to Android are in the public domain, and subject to intense examination by anyone who wants to look. So until China’s mobile OS is ready, perhaps its Ministry of State Security should start making its own Android submissions—it’s only fair that the People’s Republic contribute to the open source software it is using so heavily.

Judge O'Grady said he was "utterly bewildered" by Glen's behaviour but was persuaded not to make a finding of contempt because she had been honest.He added: "Your only saving grace is that you have been utterly honest. I am persuaded that the matter will proceed no further."

Before a license plate is rejected, the majority of a special DHSMV committee must indicate it could be offensive to a large group of people.  Then, one of the agency heads still must uphold the committee's findings.
As a result, you'll see most requested plates - from the funny to the crude to the weird - ultimately approved. 
While OLD FART was rejected, HORNMAN was approved.While GUN PLAY was rejected, GUN SAFE was approved.While BIG TURD was rejected, BG JONSN was approved.

She got the best therapist she could find, who happened to be, Mimi was told, the sports psychiatrist to the Seattle SuperSonics. In therapy, Everman just sat there. But the doctor happened to be a music freak and had a few vintage guitars around the office. Everman picked one up. The therapist started to strum with him, hoping this would open Jason up. “It was a big family joke that those were the most expensive guitar lessons ever,” Mimi told me. That’s when Everman first started playing guitar.

US mother wins lawsuit over bagel

http://www.bbc.co.uk

"Elizabeth Mort never imagined that the last thing she ate before giving birth to her daughter - a poppy seed bagel - would lead to the loss of her newborn, but that is exactly what happened after the Jameson Health System failed to account for the possibility that her positive urine drug screen was due to her ingestion of poppy seeds," the lawsuit says.
The child was later returned after the agency could find no evidence Ms Mort had used illegal drugs.

As the Daily Mail reports, laser pointers can prove distinctly dangerous for pilots."It’s equivalent to a flash of a camera if you were in a pitch black car at night," St. Louis Metropolitan Police Officer Doug Reinholz told the newspaper. "It’s a temporary blinding to the pilot and also to the tactical flight officer, whoever we are with."

Posh kindergarten cons socialite parents into paying $50G for finger painting at fund-raiser

http://www.nypost.com

The Heinemanns donated $6,000 worth of “designer clothing items” to the auction, and Michelle — a “renowned artist” whose paintings have been shown internationally — worked with Hudson’s class to create a sellable work of art.The painting consists of the traced-and-cut-out paper hands of Hudson and his 17 classmates, all painted and affixed to paper, along with each child’s written answer to the question, “How do you feel when you are around art?”Told that such paintings typically sell at school fund-raisers for $500 to $1,200, the Heinemanns said they couldn’t attend themselves but would be happy to place the winning bid — up to $3,000, the suit says.But the school’s director of advancement had a first-grade teacher named “Ms. Bryant” drive the bid up to “the outrageous sum of $50,000,” the suit alleges.

This was front page headlines for CT. Texans see a Tornado and we call it a Monday.
See, they are already dead. It's a cemetery. I told you they wouldn't get it...  Trying to tell a joke to an Aggie is very difficult cause you spend the next 3 hours explaining it to them.
