You’re not supposed to show any part of a woman’s nipple if you want a PG/PG-13 TV rating.
Twelve years ago I made what was one of the first features shot on DV. DV was a new video format that allowed you to acquire footage you could transfer onto a hard drive with minimal if any loss of data. That footage could then be cut and otherwise manipulated, while retaining a production value that, while low, was acceptable to many viewers.
This 90-minute movie is called AMAZING WORLD. A reporter and a photographer working for a quasi-Weekly World News periodical are targeted by a back-from-the-dead psychic who is actually a murderer. Read more about Nipples
Some of you may have noticed that a certain recent thread has been embroiled in the endless discussion of the primary and the general, and 11-dimensional chess, and progressive A-list bloggers and so on and so forth. It would be pointless not to acknowledge at the outset that that isn't the initial motivation for writing this post. And some of my critics are ultimately correct in pointing out after a certain point, it's not productive. So let's abstract away from it for a moment. Read more about Power and process
Major newspaper, broadcast and cable stories rarely mention the idea of a single-payer national health insurance program, according to a new FAIR study. And advocates of such a system–two of whom participated in yesterday's summit–were almost entirely shut out.
The bailed-out bankers are making it clear that Chrysler is worth more to them dead than alive:
NEW YORK -- Chrysler LLC's lenders are resisting efforts to convert most of the automaker's debt to equity, a conversion key to Chrysler's plan to restructure without filing for bankruptcy protection, according to a published report.
Banks including JPMorgan Chase & Co., Goldman Sachs, Citigroup Inc. and Morgan Stanley loaned Chrysler $6.8 billion in 2007 when Cerberus Capital Management LP acquired an 80.1 percent stake in the automaker. Former Treasury Secretary John W. Snow of Richmond is chairman of Cerberus.
"Where in the world are Ralph, Donna and Calvin?" According to Women's Wear Daily, "major American fashion designers" have their noses out of joint because first lady Michelle Obama is wearing ... other designers' clothes. Read more about More than Meets the Eye
President Barack Obama will outline in a major speech on Sunday a blueprint for ridding the world of nuclear weapons that calls for the United States to reduce its reliance on history's deadliest arms and lead a new international effort to prevent terrorists from acquiring them.
The plan would reverse the former Bush administration's policy that made nuclear weapons a central pillar of U.S. security policy by preserving an arsenal of thousands of warheads, expanding the targets against which they could be used and embracing the development of new weapons.
The privately administered health care system is fraught with massive overhead, while excluding those who need health care the most. In 2008, health care costs cleared 17 percent of our GDP, compared with 5 percent for defense, and 0.3 percent for highway infrastructure. Many European countries have universal coverage, while spending less than 10 percent of GDP.
A forum at Shepherd University’s Robert C. Byrd Center for Legislative Studies (adjacent to the Scarborough Library), held on March 24, explored solutions to a healthcare system that leaves 50 million Americans uninsured. Eastern Panhandle Single-Payer Action Network, one of the forum organizers, cited data that healthcare-related costs are the leading cause of U.S. bankruptcies. It also has been called an impediment to job mobility and business creation because surveys show that workers, afraid of losing healthcare, often stay in stale jobs rather than move to better opportunities or start businesses.
#1 at The Obama 527 Formerly Known as Daily Kos as of 6:19PM EST, a diary that so... so exemplifies... Well, let me just quote this gem: "... the frustrated rantings of has-been regulator William K. Black...". All under the headline -- and I'm glad, glad, glad that irony is so not dead -- Please be smarter than the Freepers.
Alrighty, then. Read more about That Kool-Aid sure is hard to undrink!
