  • (Alabama VS FSU Football) Sunday Morning Hangover: Keep Calm and Trust the Saban Process

    09/03/2017 10:27:03 AM PDT · by blam · 30 replies
    "It wasn’t perfect, but it was a big win over a good team" If 24 hours ago, I had told you that Alabama would defeat third-ranked Florida State 24-7, how would you feel? Happy? Thrilled? Relieved? Or maybe somewhere within? Then why don’t you feel that way now? Maybe Nick Saban has spoiled us, the Tide fans. Well, it is time to heed the advice that Saban shared with AJ McCarron a few years ago. Paraphrasing: “Calm Down”. Despite the big win over a potential playoff team, some Alabama fans are still wringing their hands and complaining about this and...
  • TSA Administrator: 71 of 73 Aviation Employees on Terror Database Were ‘Scrubbed’ From It

    SA Administrator Peter Neffenger said that two of 73 aviation employees with access to secured areas of U.S. airports who were also on the TIDE (Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment) system – the government’s database of “information on international terrorist identities” – had their credentials removed, while the other 71 were “scrubbed” from the database on the advice of the FBI. A DHS Office of Inspector General report titled, “TSA Can Improve Aviation Worker Vetting,” and dated June 4, 2015 said, “our testing showed that TSA did not identify 73 individuals with terrorism-related category codes because TSA is not authorized to...

    The Virginian ^ | 6/10/2015 | The Virginian
    The Virginian Pilot (slogan: “Dear reader, we hate your f***ing guts”) helped sell Norfolk on the “Tide.” The Tide (slogan: “if we have not run into you yet, give us time, we will.”) is a light rail system that just captured the title of “by far the biggest loser per passenger in the country.” Determined not to let go of its record of supporting every money losing public project it can find, the Virginian Pilot (favorite prediction: Norfolk will be under water by next Tuesday because of Global Warming) is doubling down on stupid. Admitting that the Tide has captured...

    The Bay Area is expected to have some of the highest tides of the year beginning Sunday, forecasters said. King tides, which usually last up to three days three times in the winter, bring unusually high tides along the coast and bay front, said Drew Peterson, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Monterey. The agency has already issued a coastal flood advisory to take effect Sunday morning, he said. Low-lying areas along the bay and along the coast, such as walkways, piers and parking lots along the Embarcadero, can expect to see some seawater, he said. Those who...

    <p>The culprit: single-dose detergent capsules that can have a candy-like appearance. In the past year, they were involved in roughly 10,000 cases of exposure involving young children...</p> <p>Three years ago, officials at an Italian poison-control center in Milan contacted P&G to report that children were biting into small packets of a P&G concentrated liquid detergent called Dash Ecodosi. The Milan officials advised P&G to make the capsules' packaging opaque and harder to open, said Fabrizio Sesana, a toxicologist at the Milan poison center.</p>

    (CNSNews.com) – Although no group has claimed responsibility for Monday’s deadly bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon, a leading al-Qaeda ideologue last year recommended that jihadists in America include sporting events in their list of prospective terror targets.

    It’s getting difficult to keep up with the Boston Marathon bombing case without a scorecard.  A week ago, the media reported that the FBI received one warning about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but found nothing of concern at the time in 2011.  Next we discovered that Russia issued multiple warnings to the US about Tamerlan, and this morning that the Joint Terrorism Task Force got alerted to the return of a “suspected militant” on his return — a warning that went nowhere.  Now CNN also reports that Tamerlan wasn’t the only Tsarnaev on Russia’s radar, and that the CIA had added his...

    It’s as if the twin towers were just blown to hell by the 19 Arab jihads as my eyes stay glassy dropping tears all through the day. I can’t shake the feeling that my country is vulnerable and at the mercy of evil as we must try to endure another 4 years. It’s so frightening because the majority of my fellow citizens believe that Obama cares so much for the little guy. Yet as our country destroys the value of the dollar we become more and more vulnerable. It is as if I am the child in the street watching...

    I know and the media now knows that Obama is going to lose. Is anyone else sensing the TURN of the "Tide"???? I am feeling it, and smelling it. Most of us know that the main stream media has been running cover for Obama for 5 years now. Very little "Vetting" or investigation at the beginning..very little pressure to do press conferences. Softball interviews on the View, and morning rock shows asking him about food and what kind of superhero he'd be. the list goes on... Just in the past 2 days.... the tide has shifted. BIG TIME!!

    With real unemployent approaching 25% of the population, 50 million Americans on food stamps, and the prices of essential goods rising every month, it’s no surprise that black market peddlers are turning to new product offerings to make a buck. In What Is Money When the System Collapses? we highlighted some items that would take the place of traditional currency in the event of a catastrophic financial and economic collapse – things like food, fuel, firearms and footwear. But for many, the world as they know it has already collapsed. Unable to afford retail prices for home essentials, these people...

    Tide laundry detergent is meant to be used for household cleaning purposes, but thieves are turning it into something dirty. Authorities are reporting a spike in thefts of Tide, and in some cities they are setting up task forces where the detergent is sold to track the number of bottles in stores. Police believe thieves are using the soap on the black market, which retails for $10-$20, to buy drugs. On the black market, Tide is often referred to as "liquid gold" and can go for $5-$10 per bottle. Last year, in St. Paul, Minnesota, a man is alleged to...

    The Daily ^ | March 12, 2012 | M.L. Nestel
    Law enforcement officials across the country are puzzled over a crime wave targeting an unlikely item: Tide laundry detergent. Theft of Tide detergent has become so rampant that authorities from New York to Oregon are keeping tabs on the soap spree, and some cities are setting up special task forces to stop it. And retailers like CVS are taking special security precautions to lock down the liquid. One Tide taker in West St. Paul, Minn., made off with $25,000 in the product over 15 months before he was busted last year. “That was unique that he stole so much soap,”...

    There is a problem with the Bowl Championship Series, but it’s not the one you probably think. College football doesn’t need a playoff. A traditional playoff system – an eight-team or even four-team bracket – brings nothing in the way of advantages over the current system and probably would make things considerably worse. Don’t tell me the traditional architecture for playoffs is the only – or even most – accurate way to determine a champion. The St. Louis Cardinals just won the World Series under that system despite having fewer wins in the regular season than any other team that...

    The passage of SB1028/HB1353 (Material Support to Designated Entities Act of 2011) in the Tennessee Legislature on May 21, 2011 after months of controversy, and inaccurate and misleading reporting in local and national media marks a sea-change moment in America’s awareness and understanding of, and response to, the threat of Islam and its doctrine of jihad. The bill passed the Tennessee Senate with 26 Yes, and 3 No; the vote in the House was 76 Yes, 16 No, and 1 Present/Not Voting. This bi-partisan support for a bill that does nothing if not increase the ability of the legal and...

    PRATT CITY, Ala. — Church groups, students and other volunteers worked aggressively Saturday to bring food, water and other necessities to communities ravaged by the second-deadliest day of tornadoes in U.S. history. Across the South, volunteers have been pitching in as the death toll from Wednesday's storms keeps rising. At least 340 people were killed across seven states, including at least 249 in Alabama, as the storm system spawned tornadoes through several states. It was the largest death toll since March 18, 1925, when 747 people were killed in storms that raged through Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. In Pratt City,...

    The Summer of Peace is currently pursuing one principal program in each area of our organizing framework highlighted above: Top-Down: “Cities of Peace” Initiative Over the last thirty years, several US cities have successfully undertaken bold civic engagement projects that have mobilized every sector of society in support of a common goal, from rebuilding decaying infrastructures and revitalizing downtown areas, to upgrading failing school systems and restoring fragile ecosystems. Such change efforts generally involve broad-scale citizen involvement through town hall meetings, task forces, roundtables of recognized leaders from every sector of civil society, and the like.

    The Coupon Whisperer ^ | January 10, 2011 | PJ-Comix
    I used to get some really incredible deals via couponing on a variety of laundry detergents but my wife wasn't satisfied. She wanted only one brand: Tide. It seems that people from Venezuela have developed VERY strong loyalties to various product brands. For example, she also disdained any toothpaste except for Colgate (or "Col-gah-teh" as she pronounces it) although I have finally gotten her to become a fan of Crest as well. This wasn't a problem because I have been able to score a lot of FREE tubes of both Colgate and Crest via creative couponing. However, Tide had...
