    In Hawaii at a campaign rally for Kaniela Ing, Alexandria Ocasia-Ortiz addresses a huge, like, campaign throng with her own speech, and stuff. Soaking in the publicity, she, like, finishes her own presentation, takes a bow and then, like (lots of vocal fry, for this part) tooootally just WALKS OFF-STAGE. (eye-roll & hair-twirl) After some prompting about, like, the whole reason for her being there and stuff, she returns to, like, finish more properly and stuff, ya know..? (video at source)

    wyneth Paltrow has vowed to live on just $29 worth of food for a week, after agreeing to take on a charity challenge aimed at raising awareness and funds for New York's food banks.

  • Perry Banned Republican Parents From Seeing Her Perform At Obama Inauguration

    If you were bestowed the honor to perform at a presidential inauguration, wouldn't you want your parents in attendance regardless of their political beliefs? Pop diva Katy Perry doesn't think so, for she told Marie Claire in an interview published Monday that because her parents are Republicans that didn't vote for Barack Obama, they couldn't watch her perform at his inauguration in January: Perry - My parents are Republicans, and I'm not. They didn't vote for Obama, but when I was asked to sing at the inauguration, they were like, 'We can come.' And I was like, 'No, you can't....

    "Is there not an appreciation for the Jewish holidays? The Christmas holiday? Kwanzaa? All the other things that families come together around? Bonding rituals important to the strength of our society? Do we not care about that? Well, the American people do. And they want to shop for it." - Wednesday, December 12, 2012, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on the house floor

    YOU'VE seen them as mythical beasts in the Chronicles of Narnia - now a village has been left shellshocked after the birth of a bizarre faun-like creature with the combined features of a man and a goat. Bild reports the goat, which died just a few hours after birth in Lower Gweru, Zimbabwe, had a huge head and face which resembled a human as well as goat legs and a tail. Villagers said the end product was so scary even dogs were afraid to go close to it. They burned the corpse fearing it was an evil sign. "This is...

  • Chinese fast developing advanced submarines

    China could have its first aircraft carrier battle group composed of 11 warships in place by 2020, a high-ranking official from the Ministry of National Defense told a recent symposium hosted by the Institute for Taiwan Defense and Strategic Studies to discuss the purchase of diesel-electric submarines. His remark is probably an understatement and the ministry has seriously underestimated China's capability to develop and deploy submarines. The ministry estimated that China will have two Type 093 nuclear-powered attack submarines in this planned aircraft carrier battle group. Named the "Shang-class" by NATO, Type 093 is a refined model of the Russian...

    In my recent “Conventional Global Strike” I promised to address soon other ways in which U.S. Navy submarine armament systems are dramatically broadening in reach and lethality. But observing the errors of fact and occasional tone nearing hysteria in some media lately, I feel compelled to first address an “enemy” weapon and put it in its proper place. This weapon has been called in print “hellacious.” It's been described as a “quantum leap” in the nature of naval warfare from this day forth -- a disruptive technology for which America is woefully unprepared. It's even been said that there's no...

    Rising foreclosures are driving the supply of unsold homes in the Denver area to near-record levels, experts agreed on Thursday. There were 27,309 unsold previously owned homes on the market in March, nearly 18 percent more than the 23,214 unsold homes a year earlier, and 5.7 percent more than the 25,848 in February, according to reports released on Thursday. The reports, based on Metrolist Inc. data, were released by independent broker Gary Bauer and Steve McGuire of RE/MAX Professionals. The record inventory of 27,798 homes was set in June 2004. McGuire adjusted the 2004 numbers for a change in the...

    Groton — Jimmy Carter, the third and final Seawolf-class submarine that has been heavily modified for special operations, departed Electric Boat on Tuesday for the first phase of its sea trials. Under Navy policy the departure was not publicly announced, but Navy and EB sources said the Carter finished its most intensive in-port test last week without any major problems and was deemed ready for Alpha trials, as they are known. Last week the crew had conducted a “fast cruise,” in which they simulate submarine operations, including running the reactor up to full power, while tied alongside the pier. It...
