    To think, Obama chose him for his elder statesman/ foreign policy experience to counter his empty suit 😛

    Meghan McCain sez:

    She’s such a shrill of a writer. Maybe if her and her ilk didn’t poop on Sarah so much we not have been “stuck with Newt”. As always, some of the comments are the best part of her articles 🙂

    Sorry you’re sick. I’d advise you to move to a climate with more sunshine, but I guess that’s out.

    Ginger root can be really good. Chicken noodle soup made with some ginger root and garlic is my cure for everything.

    I hate when I read the news and it’s all olds.

    There isn’t anything new since yesterday afternoon. Hasn’t anything happened in the world in the last 16 hours?

    Get better myiq! This will cheer you up, bloggers aren’t journalists and you can be sued for defamation (and you can sue others for same):

    A federal judge in Oregon has ruled that a Montana woman sued for defamation was not a journalist when she posted online that an Oregon lawyer acted criminally during a bankruptcy case, a decision with implications for bloggers around the country.

    Crystal L. Cox, a blogger from Eureka, Mont., was sued for defamation by attorney Kevin Padrick when she posted online that he was a thug and a thief during the handling of bankruptcy proceedings by him and Obsidian Finance Group LLC.

    U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez found last week that as a blogger, Cox was not a journalist and cannot claim the protections afforded to mainstream reporters and news outlets.

    Although media experts said Wednesday that the ruling would have little effect on the definition of journalism, it casts a shadow on those who work in nontraditional media since it highlights the lack of case law that could protect them and the fact that current state shield laws for journalists are not covering recent developments in online media.

    “My advice to bloggers operating in the state of Oregon is lobby to get your shield law improved so bloggers are covered,” said Lucy Dalglish, executive director of The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. “But do not expect the shield law to provide you a defense in a libel case where you want to rely on an anonymous source for that information.”

    Worst thing about the Chevy Volt causing fires is that both GM and NHTSA purposely delayed warnings about the battery fires to increase sales. Hmm, I love it with companies and the government work together.

    The Feds, more specifically DHS, finally returned at least one obviously innocent internet domain they seized a year ago.

    Just over a year ago, Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) seized dozens of domain names as part of Operation in Our Sites. The lawyer for one of them, music blog Dajaz1, has been furiously trying to find out about the site’s case and now, after a year of smoke, mirrors and stonewalling, the Feds have done the previously unthinkable – they’ve given the domain back.

    During November 2010, the U.S. Government seized a range of domain names said to be infringing on copyright. While few mourned the loss of 2009jerseys.com, nfljerseysupply.com, throwbackguy.com, cartoon77.com, lifetimereplicas.com and handbag9.com, others generated much more interest.

    Among them was DaJaz1.com, a site from which Special Agent Andrew Reynolds said he’d downloaded pirated music. But there was a problem. Persistent reports suggested that the songs had been legally provided to the site by record labels for the specific purposes of distribution to fans, a point later raised by Senator Ron Wyden. One ‘leak’ even came from a boss at a major music label.

    Aren’t we glad we didn’t elect her?
    From Yahoo news headline:

      Funny article. So media matters is offended. Poor babies. I’ve seen the show, and it is frequently cringe worthy, but jeeez, it’s no worse than anything else out there. I guess the main problem is a humor show that’s not pro Obama.

      Huh? That story is two years old. The crime in that case was pointing out that the pregnant man in the story was born a woman and still retains the biological capability to have children.

      • DeniseVB says:

        So sorry, you’re right, I pulled it off twitter thinking it was related to Breitbart’s appearance on Red Eye last night …. and I read it, obviously not that closely. Comments were only a few days old. Ack.

    17 year old girl wins 100K prize for cancer killing nanoparticle:

    At the age of 17 I was paying attention in college, but still enjoying the student life as much as studying towards my career goals. What I wasn’t doing was working at the cutting edge of cancer treatment and developing a potential cure.

    Angela Zhang is, and she’s just been awarded the $100,000 Grand Prize in the Individual category of the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology. Her project was entitled “Design of Image-guided, Photo-thermal Controlled Drug Releasing Multifunctional Nanosystem for the Treatment of Cancer Stem Cells.”

    Her creation is being heralded as a “Swiss army knife of cancer treatment.” Zhang managed to develop a nanoparticle that can be delivered to the site of a tumor through the drug salinomycin. Once there it kills the cancer stem cells. However, Zhang went further and included both gold and iron-oxide components, which allow for non-invasive imaging of the site through MRI and Photoacoustics.

    For some of the latest happenings of all things Chairman Gingrich, go over to a favorite site (always read Bob):

    http://dailyhowler.blogspot.com/

    He’s got some great crazy quotes from the usual foaming at the mouth types from MSNBC shaking their fist at Gingrich saying things like drug deals are hard working. Yea, I shit you not. Great reads.
