    A group of adventurers, sailors, pilots and climate scientists that recently started a journey around the North Pole in an effort to show the lack of ice, has been blocked from further travels by ice. The Polar Ocean Challenge is taking a two month journey that will see them go from Bristol, Alaska, to Norway, then to Russia through the North East passage, back to Alaska through the North West passage, to Greenland and then ultimately back to Bristol. Their objective, as laid out by their website, was to demonstrate “that the Arctic sea ice coverage shrinks back so far...

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — In recent years, the Trump Marina Hotel Casino has been wasting away in Atlantic City's ultra-competitive casino market, searching for its lost shaker of salt, if you will. Now, it's about to be reborn with a tropical theme under new owners who are bringing singer Jimmy Buffett's "Margaritaville" brand to the Northeast in hopes of reviving a property that had become as listless as the hero of Buffett's hit song. Coastal Marina LLC, an affiliate of Coastal Development LLC, said Thursday it is buying the casino from Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc., the casino company founded...

    Britain has joined the US, Japan and Australia's condemnation of China after the communist country destroyed a satellite in space using a ballistic missile.The British embassy in Beijing said it had raised the test, the first of its kind for 20 years, with the Chinese foreign ministry noting that the Government believed it was “inconsistent” with China’s opposition to the development of space weapons. A spokesman refused to elaborate on the form the protest took or on the Chinese government’s response. Later, a Downing Street spokesman said: "We are concerned about the impact of debris in space and we expressed...

    It seems the leader of the Parrotheads doesn't like being parroted. Jimmy Buffett has filed a trademark infringement suit against a man who allegedly operates an online shop that sells Margaritaville-flavored merchandise without the singer's permission. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Galveston, Texas, accuses Robert Akard of running the Website, which sells some of the same clothing and CDs available through Buffett's own Website, and in his chain of stores and restaurants. The "Cheeseburger in Paradise" singer complains that Akard wrongly bills himself as Jimmy Buffett's Online Store for Merchandise. A (very) cursory comparison of...

  • Buffett wasted on Boston (Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude?)

    Oh no, the Parrotheads are coming. The Parrotheads are coming. Lock your doors. Put bars on the windows. Call the cops! Why is it that Boston, which has delusions about being a world-class city, every now and then behaves like East Podunk? Latest case in point: two proposed Jimmy Buffett concerts at Fenway Park. Now it's no great secret that for Buffett fans - Parrothead Nation - the concert itself is only half the fun. The real event simply must include a little tailgating in the Margaritaville spirit. (How else to properly show off those wild and crazy Hawaiian shirts?)...
