South Carolina chooses

Newt Gingrich soundly defeats Mitt Romney.. even more, he won by a big percentage but according to exit polls, Romney's main strength collapsed too.. More people thought Gingrich was electable over Obama than Romney.

Florida next.. A wild ride coming.
Debate Monday.... four candidates stay in.

Happy first snow day of 2012 (at least on the East Coast) from the Earth Informer and family
Be safe. Enjoy. And don't shovel too hard.. it will melt.

This is it

South Carolina votes today.. the Saturday primary is being watched closely by political observers who wonder which candidate will come out on top after the Thursday night fight .. The South Carolina Republicans set to vote for who they, in their state, feel will best tackle President Obama in the general election.

It has been mean, nasty and fierce. And today the best man may not win..  but instead the man who will win will be the one who walked out of the cauldron of campaign hell unscathed from the attacks.

The fight is on.
The battle ends today? Or just begins.. Time will tell.

Autism's changing definition

The autism rate may soon suddenly plummet.. But the negative aspect of a seemingly good rate of reduction is that people who are in need of medical and education services would potentially be suddenly cut off--all if the definition of autism changes ..

The American Psychiatric Association is contemplating how to redefine Asberger's Syndrome.. According to a report appearing in the New York TIMES, the new definition may exclude many now considered to have autism .. How could anyone find a silver lining in the likelihood that many who suffer would be cut from aid they depend on? Considering this telling section from the New York TIMES report:
“The proposed changes would put an end to the autism epidemic,” said Dr. Fred R. Volkmar, director of the Child Study Center at Yale University School of Medicine and an author of the new analysis. “We would nip it in the bud — think of it that way.”That's positive thinking I guess..
As millions wonder if their form of autism will be called …

SLAM! POW! BAM! POOF!

Down and dirty in South Carolina as Republicans meet for the final time before the primary on Saturday.. Newt Gingrich strikes back against CNN.. Rick Santorum strikes back at Newt Gingrich.. Ron Paul argues for sound currency.. and Mitt Romney still uncomfortable about tax return releases. Just another debate in many ways.. and a brand new territory of a mean spirit in other ways. The Republicans meet. Strike. And fight. Primary on Saturday.. the gang of four may shrink by one or two.. who will it be South Carolina?

The mystery of the cruise ship mess

Just who was the blonde on the bridge before the cruise ship disaster occurred.. And what role did she play in the ordeal? Investigators want to know and the UK TELEGRAPH is on the case of the blonde Domnica Cemortan on the bridge and why exactly was she being saluted by the captain of the doomed vessel?

To quote the raven: Nevermore

The Edgar Allen Poe 'Toaster' has been showing up at his grave since the 1940s.. The traditional gift left on the grave were three roses and half of a bottle of cognac..




But now for the third year in a row the Poe Toaster failed to show.... Poe fans are calling an end to the long heralded tradition.. Nevermore..

Thursday night: The fall of Newt, 2012 edition?

Forget about the presidential debate.. this one may be the one to watch: Newt Gingrich's EX will unload.. Drudge reported earlier tonight some details on debate within ABC as to when the interview with Marianne should air. It looks now like it could be Thursday..
It's beginning to feel like 1998 all over again.

Drudge updates

His bombshell exclusive isn't something the Gingrich campaign may be happy about..

Matt Drudge writes tonight:
Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband's career with a single interview.
Earlier this week, she sat before ABCNEWS cameras, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned... MORE... Developing...

She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours. Her explosive revelations are set to rock the campaign. But now a "civil war" has erupted inside of the network, an insider claims, on exactly when the confession will air!

ABCNEWS suits determined it would be "unethical" to run the Marianne Gingrich interview so close to the South Carolina Primary.

A developing story indeed.. staying tuned to the updates as they roll

Aftershocks continue

Yet another small quake has rattled the DC area.. It's the 82nd minor tremor since last summer's east coast shake.. Or maybe it wasn't a quake but instead a massive organized campaign of citizens speaking out against SOPA..

Google logo goes black SOPA

Google has a simple and effective SOPA protest. Will people notice?

Twitter on fire about SOPA

But the Wikipedia outage has many student, some just starting a semester, angry about not being able to copy and paste sketchy facts from the online encyclopedia.. Some humorous Tweets asking what blackened out websites 'have against SOAP'... The net is free still.. But I suppose dirty too.

SOPA: Black Wednesday

Several popular websites, including Google, either partially or fully shutting down websites today (in Google's case a blackened out logo) to protect legislation meant to stop online piracy--and legislation that many fear could lead to a chilling death to freedom of speech on the Internet.. As more today become aware of the ramifications of the online piracy act, it will shed light on two things: 1) how much power will the online blackout really have to awaken the masses and 2) how much power the masses really have over the asses. Will the citizenry call Congress to protest a controversial bill?

Whatever result comes from the online blackout will be interesting to see, but for a real dent to be put into SOPA and it's champions like GoDaddy and the MPAA, the blackout must be effective and noticeable. And quick. Time is ticking on the legislation...

Seattle snowbomb

Just when you thought it was safe to live in Seattle without a snow shovel, thing again: The biggest snowstorm in decades is about the hit the Washington city.. 
Here is what is expected: Wet heavy snow potentially amounting to 10 inches in many areas. Unheard of for the city drenched in rain. Potential exists for snow to fall at an inch per hour.
Here are some photos of the event.
Welcome to winter Seattle. It's been a while. But it's slamming your city.

This is a sad one: A toddler who battled disease .. now dies in mother's arms..Tripp Roth, who was diagnosed with junctional epidermolysis bullosa at birth, died Saturday in the arms of his mother, Courtney Roth. Roth had been blogging about the birth and subsequent illness of her toddler.. Her account of what happened appeared on her site in her own writing..  It happened within minutes of me picking him up out of bed and rocking him. He took his last peaceful breaths in my arms, in his most favorite spot. My heart literally hurts more than I ever thought was possible I am actually in tears reading this.. trying not to outright weep. I don’t feel it’s my right to weep since it’s not me that went through this. It’s the Roth’s horror.. just hopefully they are finding solace in the fact that the internet is sending FTP love and HTML sorrow their way. It’s the ultimate fear, isn’t it? Seeing a child go.. especially if that child if your own. I cannot even imagine the grief.. I cannot even…
The developing horror continues in Italy.. divers find more bodies from the sinking cruise shipWhile dead bodies are being find, some living are being rescued. But the attention is now turning to the captain of the vessel.  The AP reports this: Meanwhile, attention focused on the captain, who was spotted by Coast Guard officials and passengers fleeing the scene even as the chaotic and terrifying evacuation was under way. The ship’s Italian owner, a subsidiary of Carnival Cruise lines, issued a statement late Sunday saying there appeared to be “significant human error” on the part of the captain, Francesco Schettino, “which resulted in these grave consequences.”

Moans and groans

Is the earth moaning or groaning? Are strange noises across the planet a sign of impending doom? Earthquakes? Nothing? Maybe it's all just a hoax. These 'noises' perhaps nothing else but Internet chatter about noises that aren't really so..

We know this much: There are months worth of YouTube videos showcasing what users claim are the sounds from earth.. And now more sounds and earth groans are occurring yet again, as highlighted by brand new videos online..

A few of my followers have previously told me in simply falling for a hoax. But the more I hear these videos and stories from seemingly reputable people talking about strange noises across the planet the more I think that supposed hoax I'm falling for is more truth than anything ..

This is the state of the nation

A grandmother suffered a brutal beating at none other than Chuck E Cheese's.. Her sin? Telling others not to use fowl language around grandchildren..For such a horrible request she was lunched and dragged by the hair around the Michigan restaurant.

The family was refunded by the restaurant.. Police investigating.. A hospital treating. Life in the modern age..

Cruise disaster

A cruise ship goes down.. Every man for himself.. Panic and amazing tales of survival--and horrid tales of death. The only thing that people are thinking about is that it is the modern day Titanic.

Bodies and wreckage being discovered .. The UK DAILY MAIL has a great update with excellent photos of the horror cruise from hell..
