    5/5/2010 - NEW YORK (AFNS) -- The editors of TIME magazine honored Chief Master Sgt. Antonio D. Travis as one of the 100 most influential people in the world for his efforts following the Haiti earthquake. He was recognized May 4 during the 2010 TIME 100 gala event at New York City's Lincoln Center. Chief Travis was one of the first U.S. military members on the ground at the Toussaint L'Ouverture International Airport in Port au Prince, Haiti, only 30 hours after the earthquake and less than 12 hours after the nation's president requested U.S. assistance. The chief led a...

    Nancy Pelosi recently graced the cover of a some socialite rag titled Capitol File. There is something glaring about the cover that kind of goes without saying...so I'm not going to say it (you'll figure it out anyway from my captions, which are actually word bubbles, but whatever). C'mon everyone! Throw in your two cents! The Looking Spoon is a conservative humor/satire/art/commentary blog, visit www.thelookingspoon.com to see more posts and art

    Lady Gaga, Bill Clinton top Time's influence list # AFP # April 30, 2010 1:40AM XTRAVAGANTLY dressed singer Lady Gaga, former US president Bill Clinton and Brazil's leader Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva are the world's most influential people according to Time magazine's annual list. The US weekly explains its sometimes surprising choices saying that the "Time 100 is not about the influence of power but the power of influence". Lady Gaga, famous for bizarre costumes and chart-topping dance music, leads the list of most influential artists, leading US late-night TV host Conan O'Brien, Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow and...

    Washington Times ^ | Wednesday April 27, 2010 | Nikki Schwab and Tara Palmeri
    If Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears get flak for airbrushing their photos, why not the speaker of the House? If you haven't managed to score a copy of the May/June 2010 edition of Capitol File magazine (typically flanked on every table or bathroom at any D.C. social function) you'll notice the cover girl Nancy Pelosi looking particularly young. Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Ayman Hakki of Luxxery Medical Boutique in Waldorf, Md., said although he believes Pelosi has had work done (specifically Botox of the frown lines, fat injections, a mini face-lift), the image is not the product of additional plastic...

    Le Monde Magazine in France published a cartoon showing the “Pope” sodomizing a little boy. PROTEST HERE The vile cartoon appeared in the Holy Week issue of the Le Monde Magazine. The author, Jean Plantu, is known for his blasphemous insults against the Church and the Pope. However, this might be the first time an insult against the Pope has reached this extreme. TFP Student Action chose not to reprint a copy of the cartoon because it is simply beyond the pale.

    People Magazine ^ | Friday April 16, 2010 07:30 AM EDT | By Judy Rakowsky
    A defense lawyer is calling for calm after death threats have been made against teenagers charged in the death of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince, who committed suicide after she was allegedly bullied by schoolmates. "Not to minimize what happened to Phoebe Prince in any way, but translating this into death threats and public harassment has got to stop," says Colin Keefe, who represents Sharon Chanon Velazquez, accused of tormenting Prince, who hanged herself on Jan. 14. "It's gotten way out of control," adds Keefe, who says Velazquez has been driven temporarily from her home.

    A pornographic magazine for the blind has been launched - complete with explicit text and raised pictures of naked men and women.The book, the brainchild of Lisa Murphy and called Tactile Minds, is designed to be 'enjoyed' by the blind and visually impaired - and is on sale for £150. Among the 17 raised images include a naked woman in a 'disco pose', a woman with 'perfect breasts' and a 'male love robot'. Canadian Lisa says that she made the book to fill a gap in the market, adding: "There are no books of tactile pictures of nudes for adults....

  • Carter slams magazine takedown

    02/24/2010 8:15:01 AM PST · by LouAvul · 17 replies · 671+ views
    Former President Jimmy Carter, who can get good and cranky when he feels his legacy is being misrepresented, is slamming Foreign Policy for publishing a takedown of his foreign affairs record that cautioned President Obama from succumbing to the "Carter Syndrome." The former president, who is credited with brokering the Camp David accords between Israel and Egypt, took issue with author Walter Russell Mead, who accused him of crafting a scattered and indecisive foreign policy. Plus the editors should have called him for comment, he says in an emotional and candid letter. "The editors apparently accepted without checking the author's...

    Sonia Sotomayor heeded White House advice to paint her fingernails a neutral shade during her Supreme Court confirmation process — up to a point. At a White House reception after her confirmation, Sotomayor showed her freshly painted red nails to President Barack Obama, along with her red-and-black semi-hoop earrings, according to an article in the new issue of Latina magazine to be released Nov. 17. Obama joked that Sotomayor had been briefed on proper nail color and earring size. "Mr. President, you have no idea what you've unleashed," Sotomayor replied, according to the article by her close friend Sandra Guzman,...
  • Nominations for Man of the Year

    We are approaching the time of year that Time's "Man of the Year" will be discussed and debated. I'm thinking that the biggest story of 2009 is the re-emergence of the Great Silent Majority, as represented by the town-hallers and then the Tea Partiers. I know there are many who could be credited with lighting the match that made these trends happen. If I had to single out one individual and one "call to arms", I'd give it to Rick Santelli on CNBC with the "rant heard round the world." So my recommendation to Time: give it to the Tea...
  • Graydon AWOL as Vanity Fair cuts staff

    New York Post ^ | 10/23/09 | Keith J. Kelly
    VANITY Fair yesterday took some of the deepest staff cuts at Condé Nast, but Editor Graydon Carter didn't deliver the bad news himself. Although Carter was said to have been at his restaurant, The Monkey Bar, Wednesday night, he was a no show in the office yesterday because he had jetted off on a vacation yesterday morning. Vanity Fair's layoffs were said to be in the double-digit range, and hit as high as senior editors and as low as fact checkers, and were deep, in part, because Carter largely ignored the edict to chop 5 percent late last year.

    In case the latest ZenithOptimedia ad-spending forecast wasn't depressing enough, the outlook for newspapers and magazines is especially bad -- even relative to the grim state of advertising in general. Among the gloomy predictions: while overall ad spending is expected to rebound somewhat in 2011, newspapers and magazines will continue to decline due to secular factors, including Internet competition. ZenithOptimedia expects total ad spending in developed markets to drop 9.9% in 2009, followed by a further 2.9% decline in 2010, thanks to continuing structural economic problems. After this, the Zenith forecast has ad spending in developed markets growing 1.5% in...

    Yellow Springs company embraces niche and club publications YELLOW SPRINGS — In the summer of 2008, Benjamin Smith and Vicki McClellan spotted a small magazine out of Fort Myers, Fla., calling itself Patriots of the American Revolution. After seeing it, they knew two things. First, they liked the magazine, its exploration of a certain corner of history, its direction and feel. Second, they knew their company, Yellow Springs custom publisher Ertel Publishing, could make it better. The magazine’s owner, Three Patriots LLC, has hired Ertel Publishing to design and produce the magazine. But Three Patriots and Ertel Publishing aren’t exactly...

    Twenty-seven years ago, I began my professional career at Time Magazine as a reporter-researcher in the World section, which was devoted to international news. Generally speaking, the World section ran 12 pages in the magazine. Nation, devoted to news within our borders, ran about the same or a page shorter. Think of that—an American publication, marketed to millions, that devoted slightly more of its attention, and vastly more of its budget, to news about events outside the United States.

    On April 15, American patriots will make their voice heard in more than 1,500 cities across the nation through Taxed Enough Already (TEA) party rallies that protest the runaway spending by President Obama and Congress. But will the drive-by media cover this historic event as headline news? Or will it get buried on page 15?

    BEIRUT: From explicit articles about masturbation and homosexuality to columns about "My First Time," Jasad (Body) is out to shine a spotlight on Arab cultural taboos, and the glossy magazine that is already the focus of controversy. The first issue of this quarterly publication, the brainchild of 38-year-old writer and poet Joumana Haddad, hit Lebanese newsstands last December. Tongues have wagged ever since about a daring venture into uncharted territory in the largely conservative and Muslim Middle East. "It's true that this is a first in the Arab world," Haddad told AFP. "I put open handcuffs near the word Jasad...

    Shedding Light on the Protein Big Bang Theory March 13, 2009 — The precise three-dimensional structure of a typical protein molecule is so complex, its origin would seem hopeless by chance. What if evolutionary biologists were to discover a whole host of proteins literally exploded into existence at the beginning of complex life? We can find out what they would think by looking at an article on the “protein big bang” found on Astrobiology Magazine...
