Oil threatens key Gulf algae and its ecosystem

DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. – It looks dirty and muddy, a brown mass of weeds with gas-filled berries that allow it to float on the Gulf of Mexico's waters. Sometimes it washes ashore, getting caught in the toes of barefoot beachgoers or stuck to the bottom of flip-flops.

Who Is Doing The RNC's Sophomoric Ads? George Bush?


Washington (CNN) - The Republican National Committee launched "Obama's Chicago Network" on Tuesday, a new web video designed to look like the NBC network's summer lineup promotion.

The video is complete with the familiar-sounding television voiceover that touts four new "shows": "Dancing with the Law" (Dancing with the Stars), "The Colorado Hills" (The Hills), "I'm a Politician, Get Me Out of Here!" (I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!) and "Job or No Job" (Deal or No Deal).

Random Thoughts


For some unknown reason, ever since my first radiation treatment I have had an insatiable urge to watch free online movies. Since I finally got online last Friday, I have watched two Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Pulp Fiction, Big Easy, Goodfellas, Blow, Scarface,  and The Day the Earth Stood Still.


After watching The Day the Earth Stood Still, I got to thinking: What would aliens from outer space find if they landed on earth today?


Answer: People wearing teabags hanging from their heads.





Beam me up, Scotty.

An archaeology staff member removes earth from the face of a newly found terracotta warrior at the excavation site inside the No.1 pit of the Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, on the outskirts of Xi'an, Shaanxi province, June 21, 2010. The Terracotta Warriors represent only a small portion of the eight thousand strong underground army buried in front of the Emperor Qinshihuang's tomb (r. 221-207 BC) to defend him in the afterlife. The craftsmanship attested by each of the statues is as stupendous as the scale of the project. Chinese archaeologists have unearthed about 120 more clay figures in their latest round of excavations at the terracotta army site that surrounds the tomb of the nation's first emperor in the northwestern Shaanxi Province, Xinhua reported.
