There are many contradictory views on The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. The Secret movie was released on DVD. I didn’t see the movie. I read The Secret book. I’ll tell you what the secret of The Secret really is.
On Saturday, Houston’s publicist confirmed to the Associated Press that the award-winning “I Will Always Love You” singer died. She was 48. The timing of her death, the eve of the Grammys, the biggest music event of the year, makes the horrible news even more tragic. According to CNN, Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. PT at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Houston’s fans were concerned when she married R&B bad boy Bobby Brown in 1992, but they professed their happiness.
By the late 1990s, Houston’s drug problems began to become tabloid fodder. In a 2002 interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, Houston admitted to her struggles, but maintained that she was doing fine.
The public received its first real glimpse of Houston behind-the-scenes in 2004 when she appeared on Brown’s reality series “Being Bobby Brown.” The bad publicity move depicted Houston as profane, combative, and delusional, seemingly supporting the behavior of someone on drugs.
Among the saddest indications of Houston’s fall was her 2009 comeback album, “I Look To You.” While the album received positive reviews, her live performances signaled that the damage to her voice was beyond repair.
Concertgoers stormed out of her 2010 “Nothing But Love World Tour” angry, complaining that Houston was not fit to sing live, and they demanded that their ticket costs be refunded.
On stage, Houston made light of her vocal struggles, and even seemed to be confident when doing so.
But the public scrutiny intensified, and was followed by additional stints in rehab.
While the cause of death has not yet been revealed, one can only wonder whether it was drug-related.
Anyone who remembers Houston’s early work and the impact it had on music can only be saddened by her death.
The Beverly Hilton is the venue for the music industry’s most prestigious pre-Grammy party hosted by veteran executive Clive Davis, who discovered Houston.
In an industry flooded with novelty artists, who disappear after scoring one hit, Houston’s longevity was unquestioned when she released her debut single, the ballad “You Give Good Love” in February 1985. The song’s soothing opening ad-libs displayed her soulful roots while also celebrating her pop sensibilities.
David Guetta died in a single vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics responding to the vehicle accident and was identified by photo ID found on his body. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to have been a factor in this accident – October 12, 2011
Highway Safety Investigators have told reporters that David Guetta lost control while driving a friend’s vehicle on Interstate 80 and rolled the vehicle several times killing him instantly.
The vehicle was believed to have been traveling at approximately 95 miles per hour in a 55mph zone at the time of the accident.
Witnesses have stated that David Guetta’s car crossed the double lines several times prior to the accident and hit the center lane divider causing the vehicle to flip and roll.
Toxicology tests will be performed to determine whether he was driving under the influence, however initial findings indicate that durgs or alcohol did not contribute in any way to this accident as it was more likely to been caused by road conditions.
Memorial services for David Guetta have not yet been announced. The service is expected to be a closed casket funeral due to the severe head trauma.
Additional details and information will be forthcoming as they become available. We Hope…
Have you seen the Micky Ward movie “The Fighter” trailer yet? It’s wicked Awesome and I think it’s already showing that it’s going to capture the Lowell scene during the 80′s and 90′s and up to Micky’s epic last fights with Arturo Gatti.
Micky Ward retired at 37 years old with a boxing record of 38 Wins, 13 Losses with 27 Win coming via KO. His first fight was on June 13, 1985 in Lawrence, MA and his last on June 7, 2003 in Atlantic City NJ.
The upcoming movie The Fighter will start Christian Bale as Dick Eklund and Mark Wahlberg as Micky Ward and you can see the trailer below. I’ll add new videos as they become available.
Typing on your cellphone while driving could cost you $100 under a state ban against the practice that’s likely to become law. Technologies that let you text by talking can cost a lot less. But do they work? I’ve checked out a number of them recently, with mixed results.
Vlingo Corp. of Cambridge has one of the more attractive solutions. Vlingo Plus costs $10 for the iPhone and Google Inc.’s Android operating system, or $20 for the Nokia or BlackBerry editions.
Vlingo Plus can automatically read incoming text messages and e-mails. You don’t have to do anything. As soon as a message arrives, it’s read out in a metallic, female voice. Use a Bluetooth headset if you don’t want your passengers listening in, or turn off the automatic reading function.
Talking back isn’t altogether hands-free. On my BlackBerry Bold, it required pushing a button on the side of the phone. Then I ordered Vlingo to send a note to “Watha iPhone,’’ which is how my iPhone is listed in my BlackBerry’s address book.
It worked — sometimes. But after all these years, computers still have trouble understanding human language. With Vlingo and other speech-texting apps, I frequently had to repeat myself, even at home or in a quiet office. And the background noises of a moving car further reduced Vlingo’s accuracy. The system recognizes numbers better than words, so it helps to recite the phone number you’re trying to text, rather than the person’s name.
You must also say the correct command words. For instance, first say, “Message to,’’ followed by the name or number of the person you’re texting. Then say “message’’ again to start writing. Get it right, or Vlingo won’t understand.
A different texting service, VoiceAssist, doesn’t require a special software app. Subscribers, who pay $4.95 a month at VoiceAssist.com, register their personal phone numbers and upload a contact list onto the company’s server. Then, when they dial VoiceAssist, the network recognizes them. It will read incoming e-mails aloud or send text messages to contacts by voice. But the current version of VoiceAssist can’t read incoming text messages. The company says an upgrade is in the works.
I had slightly better luck with Voice On The Go. This service costs $6 a month, or $50 a year, at voiceonthego.com, and works with any phone, even a landline. It can also be controlled through a handy software app for iPhones, BlackBerrys, and Androids. Once again, Voice On The Go will send voice-generated text messages, but it won’t play back the replies. But the same company now offers DriveCarefully, a separate app that runs only on BlackBerry phones and can play incoming e-mails and text messages. It’s better than nothing, but incoming messages are played in a harsh and hasty digital voice. And since you never know when a message will be read, it’s easy to miss them, especially if you’re also fighting rush-hour traffic.
A better solution comes from ZoomSafer, maker of a $25 driver safety app that automatically locks a smartphone when it’s inside a moving car. At ZoomSafer.com, you can now buy an upgraded version featuring VoiceMate, a system for playing and responding to text messages. VoiceMate is available for BlackBerry and Windows Mobile phones only and costs an additional $4 a month, or $40 a year, on top of the price of ZoomSafer.
The VoiceMate feature dials up a computer that will read your e-mails and text messages to you. The digital voice is still rather grating and rushed. But unlike with Vlingo or DriveCarefully, messages are only played when you ask for them, so you can pay attention. Of course, you can verbally reply to the messages, but as with the standard ZoomSafer program, all the phone’s other functions remain locked.
For texting addicts, ZoomSafer and Vlingo are the best of this bunch, but that’s not saying much. They all suffer from the usual mediocre accuracy of speech recognition products. Even in a quiet room, you must repeat yourself time and again. In a moving car, it gets worse. In fact, it’s almost as bad as trying to type on a cellphone at 70 miles per hour. Luckily, the ideal solution was invented decades ago: the parking brake.

Hank (8:00 – 8:30 PM): Hank is about a corporate tycoon who is forced out of his job when his company downsizes.

Modern Family (9:00 – 9:30 PM): Modern Family is a hysterical new television show from ABC. It was hilarious from the premier and that same raw and entertaining reality continues through the present.

Mercy (8:00 – 9:00 PM) – NBC’s new series Mercy focuses on the professional lives and friendship of three nurses. The idea of the show isn’t half bad but the results are less than satisfactory.

Friday nights, for me, is definitely all about ABC. I love all of the shows in the line-up. But for those of you with different tastes I will also list the shows available on the other networks:
Who Do You Think You Are?: is an American genealogy documentary series which premiered on NBC on March 5, 2010. The show is an adaptation of the British series of the same name, which was created and produced by Alex Graham. Each week a celebrity goes on a journey to trace his/her family tree. The series is executive produced by Lisa Kudrow, and marks a partnership between NBC Entertainment and Ancestry.com.
A few of the celebrities that have been on the show this season are Sarah Jessica Parker, Emmitt Smith, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Broderick, Brooke Shields, Susan Sarandon, Spike Lee.
Dateline NBC: is a U.S. weekly television newsmagazine broadcast by NBC. It is similar in format to other television newsmagazines ABC’s 20/20 and CBS’s 60 Minutes. Much like other newsmagazines, Dateline programming includes investigative journalism, true crime, and human interest stories. Common segments feature Dateline: Survivor, where a person talks about their near death experience and rescue; Dateline Timeline, where a popular product, person, and music single are played and viewers are invited to guess what year it appeared in; State of the Art, explaining how something was technically accomplished in a movie; Consumer Alert, where common consumer complaints or issues, such as food safety, are investigated, and Newsmakers, light interviews of major figures in politics, entertainment, and business, as well as regular people in the news. The Saturday night edition of Dateline features special emphasis on true crime stories programming, which has been named Dateline Saturday Night and includes the “To Catch a Predator” series. NBC News specials also air under the Dateline banner.
Ghost Whisperer: is an American supernatural show, which premiered on CBS on September 23, 2005. The series follows the life of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who has the ability to see and communicate with ghosts. While trying to live as normal a life as possible, Melinda helps them cross over into the light to the other side by working as an owner of an antique store, sometimes dealing with people who push her away, and disbelieve her ability.
Medium: is an American supernatural and dramatic television series which premiered on NBC on January 3, 2005. Its focus is Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette), who acts as a research medium for the Phoenix, Arizona district attorney’s office. The lead character is a wife to loving husband, Joe, and the mother of three daughters who all inherited her gift, apparently passed from generation to generation. The original premise of the show was based on reported experiences from self-proclaimed spiritual medium Allison DuBois, who claims to have worked with law enforcement agencies across the country in criminal investigations.
Miami Medical: is about a team of expert surgeons who thrive on the adrenaline rush of working at one of the premiere trauma facilities in the country while drawing upon their wit and irreverence to survive on the edge. As part of the Alpha Team at one of the top trauma hospitals, these professionals exclusively treat patients with life-threatening injuries. Dr. Matthew Proctor is new to the trauma team after leaving a lucrative private practice following his return from a tour of duty in a MASH unit during the first Gulf War. Dr. Eva Zambrano is a workaholic surgeon who wishes she had more time for a personal life. Dr. Christopher Deleo, “Dr. C.,” is a playboy who thrives on the high-stakes of trauma medicine and is, by his own description, a genius cowboy. Dr. Serena Warren is fresh out of medical school and is quickly learning the meaning of “trial by fire.” The glue that keeps the team together is head nurse Tuck Brody, who balances the needs of the doctors and their patients’ families in this chaotic corner of the medical profession. Together, this team of doctors excels in the “golden hour,” the 60 minutes after being critically injured when a patient’s life hangs in the balance.
Wife Swap: Two families, usually from vastly different social classes and lifestyles, swap wives/mothers (and sometimes husbands) for two weeks. In fact, the programme will usually deliberately swap wives with extreme, polar opposite lifestyles, such as a dramatically messy wife swapping with a fastidiously neat one. Despite using a phrase from the swinging lifestyle, couples participating in the show do not share a bed with the “swapped” spouse while “swapping” homes.
During the first week, the new wife must adhere to exactly the same rules and lifestyle of the wife she is replacing. Each wife leaves a house manual which explains her role in the family and the duties she holds. This almost always determines what rules the wives will apply at the “rules change ceremony”.
During the second week, the new wives are allowed to establish their own rules, and their new families must adhere to these new household rules. It usually takes a while for the families to adjust to this policy, meanwhile the wives disperse a sum of money to the family they have become immersed in, to do what the wives see fit to spend it on.
20/20: is an American “television newsmagazine”, (similar in depth to a “print newsmagazine”), broadcast on ABC since June 6, 1978. Created by ABC News executive Roone Arledge, the show was designed similarly to CBS’s 60 Minutes but focuses more on human interest stories than international and political subjects.
House MD: Dr. House often clashes with his boss, hospital administrator and Dean of Medicine Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), and his diagnostic team, because many of his hypotheses about patients’ illnesses are based on subtle or controversial insights. House’s only true friend is Dr. James Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard), head of the Department of Oncology. During the first three seasons, House’s diagnostic team consists of Dr. Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer), Dr. Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), and Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps). At the end of the third season, this team disbands. Rejoined by Foreman, House gradually selects three new team members: Dr. Remy “Thirteen” Hadley (Olivia Wilde), Dr. Chris Taub (Peter Jacobson), and Dr. Lawrence Kutner (Kal Penn); the latter was written out of the series toward the end of season five. Chase and Cameron continue to appear in different roles at the hospital until early in season six. Cameron then leaves the show, and Chase returns to the diagnostic team.
Smallville: is an American television series developed by writers/producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, based on the DC Comics character Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The television series was initially broadcast by The WB, premiering on October 16, 2001. After its fifth season, The WB and UPN merged to form The CW, which is the current broadcaster for the show in the United States. The longest-running comic book based series in television history, Smallville began its ninth season on September 25, 2009, and was renewed for a tenth season on March 4, 2010. The series follows the adventures of Clark Kent (Tom Welling), who resides in the fictional town of Smallville, Kansas, during the years before he becomes Superman. The first four seasons focused on Clark and his friends’ high school years. Since season five, the show has ventured into more adult settings, eventually focusing on his career at the Daily Planet, as well as introducing other DC comic book superheroes and villains.
America’s Next Top Model: is a reality television show in which a number of women compete for the title of America’s Next Top Model and a chance to start their career in the modeling industry. The show was created and is hosted by talk-show host and model Tyra Banks, who also serves as the head judge and executive producer of the show.
Wizards of Waverly Place: Set on Waverly Place in Manhattan, New York’s Greenwich Village neighborhood, Wizards of Waverly Place centers on the Russo family, which includes Alex (Selena Gomez), her younger brother Max (Jake T. Austin) and their older brother Justin (David Henrie). The three Russo siblings are wizards in training and live with their Italian-American father Jerry (David DeLuise), a former wizard, and their Mexican-American mother, Theresa (Maria Canals Barrera) who is a mortal. Alex’s best friend Harper (Jennifer Stone) also found out about the Russos’ wizard powers in season 2. The siblings have to keep their secret safe while living in the mortal world. When they become adults, the three siblings will have a wizard competition to decide who will become the family wizard of their generation and keep their powers forever. The magical world tends to be very eccentric and surreal.
Ricky Gervais Show: is a comedy audio show in the UK starring Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and Karl Pilkington, later adapted into an animated televised version debuting for HBO and Channel 4 in 2010. The show started in November 2001 on Xfm, and aired in weekly periods for months at a time throughout 2002, 2003, 2004, and mid-2005. In November 2005, Guardian Unlimited offered the show as a podcast series of 12 shows. Throughout January and February 2006, the podcast was consistently ranked the number one podcast in the world; it appeared in the 2007 Guinness World Record for the world’s most downloaded podcast, having gained an average of 261,670 downloads per episode during its first month. According to the BBC, by September 2006, the podcasts of the series had been downloaded “nearly 8 million” times.
Life & Times of Tim: is an HBO comedy animated television series, which premiered on September 28, 2008. The series was created by Steve Dildarian, and is about a hapless man in his mid 20s named Tim (Dildarian) who lives in New York City with his girlfriend Amy. Throughout the series, Tim constantly finds himself in increasingly awkward situations in both his work and personal life. The first season aired in 2008 and has since been aired in numerous countries, and has developed something of a cult following. The second season debuted on February 19, 2010 on HBO.

I remember the year that my nephew got a battery powered riding toy. He was 3 years old, and anxiously “helped” his grandfather put that car together. For the next several years he would drive that car all over the yard. He went in between other toys, around the neighbor’s house, even around the block. That car, a fire truck, was his favorite toy for years and it broke his heart when he finally outgrew it. So as my son was turning 3 and I was considering what to get him, a battery powered riding toy was the first thing I thought of. I couldn’t wait to see his little face light up when he opened the box and realized he would be getting his very own electric vehicle.
There were certain features the car had to have. For one thing, it had to have a higher weight limit. My nephew’s car had a lower weight limit, meaning that it was outgrown faster. I wanted my son to be able to enjoy the toy for as long as possible. I also wanted a battery that is easy to charge. The battery on my nephews was a little tricky to remove, and I knew I would want one for him that could easily be plugged in. I also wanted a vehicle with a longer battery life so my son could drive it around for longer periods of time. I also have two children, and I knew that the best way to prevent too much fighting would be to buy a vehicle that could seat more than one child.
Thus began my search for the hottest battery powered riding toys for 2010. Here are some of the models I found, what makes them appealing and where you can find them so you can get one for your child.
My son loves tractors and anything with big wheels, so the John Deere Gator HPX Ride-On was a really good possibility. Not only does it seat 2 kids, but it even has a little tractor bed in the back for hauling things around! This tractor has 2 speeds in forward and can go in reverse. The seats are adjustable and can hold up to 130 pounds of growing children. The bed can actually dump items out through the swinging tailgate making this ride-on that much cooler. The tires feature knobby treads for great traction and a fun look. I love that my son can move garden dirt and flowers around the yard for me when it’s time to work in the gardens!
Then I looked at the other end of the spectrum and wondered if my son would prefer a sports car. The Mustang Power Wheels Ride-On, Item #FPC094, is styled after the 2009 Ford Mustangs. Not only does this car seat two kids, but it even has a cup holder! There is even a sound box that makes motor sounds to help my son really feel like he’s driving a real car. Like the John Deere, the Mustang can go 2.5 mph or 5 mph in forward and can also drive in reverse. It can drive on grass or sidewalks. The battery will run between 1 and 3 hours, depending on how heavy the driver and passengers are and what kind of ground it’s running over. This one is very tempting as it looks exactly like the hot Ford Mustangs, and my son is already a Ford lover.
And then I saw the Fisher-Price Battery Powered Cadillac Escalade EXT, Item #FPC096. This little car is fresh, different and full of style. It also seats 2 children, can run in two different speeds and has a rechargeable battery. This ride-on takes realism to the next level with real working doors that actually have windows. The grill is chrome, the headlights look real and there is even an actual working radio so my son can tool around and listen to tunes while he cruises around.
Just when I thought I knew which one I would get, I spied the Battery Powered Indian Motorcycle, Item #FNX001. On the downside, this only seats one child. But on the other hand it features a low enough price that I can buy two. Then I definitely don’t have to worry about the kids fighting over battery powered ride-ons. This motorcycle features training wheels to keep your little one safe and looks just like a 1948 Indian. The license plates are individually numbered, making this a toy that I might even keep for future generations. It can go up to 2 mph and makes awesome engine noises. It supports up to sixty pounds, meaning that my son could enjoy it for several years to come.
The hardest part now will be deciding which hot new battery powered riding toy I’ll chose for my son’s third birthday.

Brittany Flickinger: “I’m the new revolution, Bitches”
I was digging the show Paris Hilton’s My New BFF a while ago and saw a chic on there that was from the New England area. Brittany Flickinger. I wanted to see what she’s been doing lately and got a chance to catch up with her and ask her some questions.
When did you start writing music and what was the first verse on your first song you wrote?
Brittany: I started writing music when I was in 3rd grade secretly…haha they sucked but I loved doing it, my first rock song that I wrote was with my old band The Countdown called “sounds like a plan“, in November of 08, and the first pop song I wrote was “Chicago” a little bit before that.
In a lot of the tabloids you were deemed an aspiring rock singer, what do you deem yourself as?
Brittany: I don’t even really know what I am. haha. I’m creating a new genre, like…filling in the missing puzzle piece in the “pop” world. It’s tough but it’s pretty grand.
Now that you are reinventing yourself and struggling to make it as a legit song writer/artist in the music industry all on your own, what gives you inspiration to keep going?
Brittany: My fans, it kills me that I don’t have anything for them yet. I love them so much for sticking around. Feels good that people care about me and look up to me, I just wanna have something to give.
Are there other any other plans or projects coming up in your promising career?
Brittany: Yes. but Im focused on music right now so everything else is on hold.
Is there anything you can tell your worldwide fans something about yourself no one knows?
Brittany: ummm….just that I’m a regular girl in love with music…not here for drama or tabloids or to hurt anyone…just minding my own business writing music that I hope other people are gonna love as much as I do.

Have you checked out what’s going on at Chat Roulette yet? I’ve been on there a few times and I’m amazed and embarrassed at what some people are doing on there. Some times I’m afraid I’m going to find an old school teacher on there in a clown suit or a friend dressed up as a bum with his unit in his hand.
Anyway check out some of the screen captures, pictures and videos I’ve found of other people and what they’re doing on chat roulette. Be careful because most of it is not safe for work (NSFW).

Mass Effect is one of my favorite games of the past decade. Despite its technical shortcomings, BioWare’s first in what it promised to be a trilogy took the role-playing genre to new cinematic heights. Mass Effect 2 is a better game in near every way. From the very first scene, you will be hooked. And the farther you dive into this epic action role-playing game, the better it gets. It fulfills the promise of its predecessor while continuing to push the boundaries of what we should expect in a videogame.
This is the continued saga of Commander Shepard. It’s the future, and all sentient life across the galaxy is in peril. An advanced race of machines known as Reapers is intent on wiping the slate clean. Shepard, a distinguished soldier, has faced this threat and emerged triumphant once, but victory is far from assured. Now Shepard must take the fight to the enemy — a mission that is dubbed suicidal from the outset. Things don’t look very promising, but Shepard has a plan. It involves recruiting the best and brightest from around the galaxy and somehow convincing them their lives are worth sacrificing for the greater good.
These heroes are what drive the story. Their motivations become yours as the experience continues to get better with each addition to the cast. Shepard’s compatriots are fascinating and flawed; captivating and occasionally despicable. The arc of the main tale itself isn’t in itself exceptional, but the characters BioWare has crafted most definitely are. These are some of the most compelling players I’ve ever seen in a videogame — the Drell named Thane is a particular favorite of mine — and the great design and writing isn’t limited to the main cast. The citizens of the galaxy are extraordinary and offer more than enough reason to explore every location and talk to everybody.
All of this is made even better by Mass Effect’s trademark cinematic and interactive approach to conversations. With Mass Effect 1, BioWare introduced a conversation wheel that allowed for fast-moving, intriguing, and player driven cutscenes. Rather than slowly moving through conversations by selecting dialogue from a list, Mass Effect allows the player to quickly choose an emotional response, which generally include an honorable paragon reaction and a snappy renegade remark. The result is that every little dialogue snippet is about as engaging as they come. It was innovative when Mass Effect 1 first came out, and it’s still so far ahead of the curve, backed up by further refinements, including a quick-time interrupt system, and powerful voice acting. Mordin Solus, a Salarian scientist played by Michael Beattie, and Martin Sheen as the Illusive Man, are high points in an all-star cast of voices.
The true strength of Mass Effect 2′s story, however, is in how personal BioWare has made it. If you played Mass Effect 1 through to the end and still have your save data, this game will import your character and all the decisions you made. The central plot will not drastically change, but the experience most certainly will. Some old friends and acquaintances will return – and others won’t – based on decisions you made in the last game. Even the opening moments of Mass Effect 2 can be slightly different.
The actions you take in the sequel only compound this feeling of personalization. By the finale you’ll have made so many decisions – ranging from simple things like whether you play as a male or female all the way up to those governing life or death – that the result is a game that is yours and yours alone. Choices you made in Mass Effect 1 come back to remind you of past good deeds or injustices. Decisions made here affect the final outcome. Reminders that everything you do will be reflected in Mass Effect 3 are everywhere, adding further drama to every conversation. Things you say and do actually matter, and that’s an incredible sensation to get from a videogame.
Even if you didn’t play Mass Effect 1, this game is worth playing. If you’re not importing a character, BioWare simply makes some of the decisions from Mass Effect 1 for you. It’s slightly less dramatic and the story here is often references events in the first game, which might make some bits less thrilling for novices. There are revelations and tantalizing plot twists that Mass Effect veterans will go crazy for. These same moments simply won’t carry the same weight with those hopping in for part two. It’s a bit of a Catch-22 for the designers tasked with the impossible job of pleasing newcomers while still pushing the limits.
Speaking of pleasing people, BioWare listened to every last bit of criticism leveled at Mass Effect 1. That game, particularly on Xbox 360, suffered from a few technical and presentational issues. This sequel is a much, much cleaner experience. Long elevator rides and slow-loading textures are gone, replaced with (occasionally lengthy) loading screens. Generic cut-and-paste side quests and empty planets to explore have been totally ripped out. Pretty much everything that anybody took even the slightest issue with in Mass Effect 1 has been axed or rebuilt entirely.
Even though it’s a cleaner production, Mass Effect 2 isn’t a perfectly polished game. I’ve played through the game twice and during that time experienced sound cutting out, my character getting stuck in the environment and full game crashes. Thankfully, these miscues are infrequent, which allows the art style to shine. Mass Effect 2 is a visual treat, filled with breathtaking landscapes and an awesome attention to detail. If you’re playing on PC and have a powerful rig (I took Shepard for a spin on an Alienware Intel Core 2 Quad 2.00 GHz prcoessor, dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M cards, and 6 GB of memory), it will look even better.
The improvements aren’t only technical. The inventory and skill systems have been made more manageable, streamlined to the point that they might initially appear too thin for a role-playing game. Keep playing, however, and you’ll begin to see strength and depth emerge as you further customize your squad.
One of the biggest reasons why this streamlined approach to character customization works is the retooled character classes. The same six specialization options are back, ranging from the Jedi-inspired biotic users to the technically inclined engineer. This time, however, they’ve been defined and differentiated much more clearly, each getting its own set of weapon specializations and unique skills. Playing as a soldier is a vastly different combat experience compared to the vanguard or infiltrator. Each class has its own approach to battle, which is then further defined by how you choose to outfit your squad and where you assign skill points. By the end of the game, everything about Mass Effect 2 will be shaped by your choices – from the story to the ebb and flow of combat.
Of course, none of this would matter if it isn’t fun to play. Good news. Mass Effect 2 is a lot of fun. The action has been refined to the point that even general fans of shooters will find a lot to like here. It’s not perfect, but the game handles quite well. It doesn’t take long to master simultaneously ripping off rounds from an assault rifle, tossing out a few biotic skills, and directing the two AI driven squad mates to combine raw power with smart tactics. And when things get really rough — and they will, Mass Effect 2 is no cake walk — you can always pull out a heavy weapon and tear the enemy a new one.
Add in fantastic level design and awesome skills like the vanguard’s charge or the infiltrator’s cloaking ability and you have one spectacular virtual playground. Mass Effect 1 toed the line by offering some of the action elements that shooter fans enjoy with some of the role-playing tactics that the hardcore fans of the genre want. The sequel improves both areas for a through-and-through satisfying battle system.
On PC, the heads-up display is a bit different, custom built to work with a keyboard and mouse. Both versions are largely identical, though you will get a few more options for customizing hot keys and skill usage on the PC. Which works better for you will be a matter of personal preference.
An emphasis has clearly been put on ensuring that the combat in Mass Effect 2 never grows stale. Side quests each have their own unique areas to explore — and you’ll have to explore the galactic map, talk to random characters, and find key items to even trigger many of them. The combat zones themselves, however, have been cleaned up to be more straightforward and compelling, rather than repetitive labyrinths. New gameplay twists are introduced frequently with some large quests eschewing combat entirely. There’s a great focus on exploration and discovery here and BioWare has made sure that the reward for doing so is worth the effort.

Nintendo has announced that DSi XL will be released in the UK on March 5th, 2010.
Nintendo has finally revealed the launch date for its Nintendo DSi XL for Europe which is now due to hits British shop shelves on 5 March.
As many of you will know from coverage of the Japanese launch of the DSi XL, this latest version is bigger than the current gen model.
The DSi XL offers two 4.2-inch screens, which are 93% bigger than the screen on the Nintendo DS Lite and also boasts a larger pen-like stylus said to be more comfortable and better to control.
Nintendo also highlights the wider viewing angle of the DSi XL, seemingly angled at making sharing games or other content better.
The new handheld device will launch in wine red and dark brown, with, Nintendo says, “a glossy sheen on top and matte finish on the underside that provides excellent grip when resting on a table or other surface during gameplay”.
It will arrive pre-loaded with “Dr Kawashima’s: Little Bit of Brain Training: Arts Edition” and “Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function”.
Pricing has yet to be confirmed but back in October Nintendo said “the retail price of the Nintendo DSi XL is expected to be higher than that of the Nintendo DSi”.
The console will be available in two colors – wine red and dark brown – and will come pre-loaded with the DSiWare software Dr Kawashima’s: Little Bit of Brain Training: Arts Edition, Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function and Flipnote Studio, as well as the Nintendo DSi Browser.
The console comes with a new larger pen-like stylus in addition to the standard stylus. According to Nintendo, this new stylus has been designed to make “extended stylus gameplay more comfortable to allow better control.”
DSi XL will have the same capabilities as the DSi, and the retail price is expected to be higher than that of the DSi.
I want to get a Human Sushi Platter for my birthday. Sure it’ll be fun to eat and take pictures of but who can say they had one at their own party. It’s also called Nyotaimori or body sushi party. Whatever it’s fun and I like to be original.
I went to this party a few months ago and Rachael was a human sushi platter for the evening, the centerpiece of an opening party last month for a new restaurant opening in Boston. Taking gentle breaths, she kept as still as possible so as not to disturb the clusters of oil-infused sushi rolls, sashimi and other pieces of raw fish artfully arranged on the banana leaves in a style known as nyotaimori. Amazing!
Making Your Own Human Sushi Platter or Nyotaimori
Before becoming a living sushi platter, the person is trained to lie down for hours without moving. She or he must also be able to withstand the prolonged exposure to the cold food. Body hair, including pubic hair, would also be shaved, as a display of pubic hair may be seen as a sexual act. Before service, the individual would take a bath using a special fragrance-free soap and then finish off with a splash of cold water to cool the body down somewhat for the sushi.
In some parts of the world, in order to comply with sanitation laws, there must be a layer of plastic or other material between the sushi and the body of the woman or man.
Less common, but not unheard of, is the practice of using a male model for the same purpose, called nantaimori.
Nyotaimori, “female body presentation”, is a service allowing restaurant customers to eat from the skin of a naked woman. Apart from her crotch, which is usually covered with some kind of garnish, the model’s modesty depends on the (temporary) position of the food on her body. Also known as “body sushi”, this phenomenon received a lot of media attention in the West in the 1990s. This coverage massively exaggerated the popularity of nyotaimori in Japan – these restaurants are actually very rare, and generally associated with organised crime rather than being mainstream.
Aside from the obvious attractions of salivating over a nubile body, it is claimed that nyotaimori warms the food to body temperature. Apparently, this allows the diner to focus on the texture and taste, rather than its temperature. However, many people fail to see the advantage of sushi being lukewarm and slightly sweaty.
Jobs in nyotaimori are not for the ticklish or fidgety. Models are trained to lie still for hours, and they must be able to endure unexpected splashes of cold water and prods with chopsticks. Her body must be completely shaved, and specially washed with fragrance-free soap before the feast. Traditionally, the meal is eaten directly from the skin of the model, but hygiene laws in many countries prevent this – forcing restaurants to wrap their girls in clingfilm to prevent contact between skin and food. According to custom, the model should be a virgin, but this doesn’t seem to be observed any more.

Texan visits Ireland – Classic Irish Drinking Story
A Texan walks into a pub in Galway, Ireland and raises his voice to the crowd of drinkers. He shouts, ‘I hear you Irish are a bunch of drinkin’ fools. I’ll give $500 American dollars to anybody in here who can drink 10 pints of Guinness back to back.’
The room is quiet and no one takes of the Texan’s offer.
Paddy Murphy gets up and leaves the bar. Thirty minutes later, he shows back up and taps the Texan on the shoulder. Is your bet still good?’ asks Paddy.
The Texan answers, ‘Yes’, and he orders the barman to line up 10 pints of Guinness.
Immediately, Paddy downs all 10 pints of beer, drinking them all back to back. The other pub patrons cheer and the Texan sits down in amazement. The Texan gives the Irishman the $500 and asks, ‘If ya don’t mind me askin’, where did you go for that 30 minutes you were gone?’
Paddy Murphy replies, ‘Oh………………. I had to go to the pub down the street to see if I could do it first.’
The local District Judge had given the defendant a lecture on the evils of drink. But in view of the fact that this was the first time the man had been drunk and incapable, the case was dismissed on payment of twenty euros costs.
‘Now don’t let me ever see your face again, ‘said the Justice sternly as the defendant turned to go.
‘I’m afraid I can’t promise that, sir, ‘said the released man.
‘And why not?’ .
‘Because I’m the barman at your regular pub.’
The Doctor was puzzled, ‘I’m very sorry but I can’t diagnose your trouble, O’ Flaherty. I think it must be drink.’
‘Don’t worry about it Dr Cullen, I’ll come back when you’re sober.’ said O’ Flaherty.

The most profitable kind of poker psychology is the ability to read your opponents. Imagine the edge having this ability would give you and then imagine how much money you could win with it! Or maybe just at a table playing strip poker. Nice!
Bring this knowledge to the poker table and you will win money — it’s as simple as that!
Any mannerism which helps you determine the secrets of an opponent’s hand is called a tell. I’ve spent time at Massachusetts casinos and just walked around for hours watching people at poker tables. Look closely and you’ll see opponents giving away the strength of their hands just by their mannerisms. Until a few years ago, nobody understood tells thoroughly. Experienced players would try to uncover trends in their opponents’ behavior. Maybe they discovered that one opponent would always loosen his tie five minutes before attempting a major bluff. Such discoveries are important, but there’s a much better way to go about reading opponents.
If you wanted to catalog all the possible tells an opponent might exhibit, the list might go on forever. You could sit for a few days and jot down several thousand things that opponents might do under stress. Unfortunately, after all that work, your list would be pitifully incomplete. There are millions of tells you could write down if you could only think of them all.
There is a simple way to read your opponents. You must learn the motives behind their actions. Then, even when you encounter a tell you’ve never seen before, you’ll have a good idea of what it means. When you’re finished with this book, you won’t have to memorize all the actions of each opponent. Instead, you’ll be able to fit their mannerisms into universal categories of tells. You’ll often know exactly what they hold and, better still, you’ll know why they’re acting as they are.
You’ll get deep inside their minds. And sometimes you’ll be positive what cards an opponent holds — just as if he’d turned his hand face up on the table! When you can do that, your profits will soar. In my opinion, a conscientious winner will at least triple his profits once he masters the science of tells.
It’s important that you comprehend the reason why many tells happen. Most tells occur because players are trying to conceal the true strength of their hands. The most likely way they attempt to do this is to act in a manner that will convey the opposite of what they’re holding. If a hand is weak, they’ll try to convince you it’s strong. If a hand is strong, they’ll try to convince you it’s weak.
In this sense, your opponents are actors.
The response to the iPhone is overwhelming. The App Store has captured the hobbyist’s imagination like no other platform in recent memory. Hobbyists have made—and will continue making—money from their creations sold on the App Store. And we aren’t necessarily talking about high-minded technical innovations. The media has reported that
apps that make your iPhone pass gas have made folks hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Rival farting App developers have even gone so far as suing one another over the App Store’s precious revenue. The iPhone and the App Store are here to stay—well, at least until the next big thing comes along like iphone mms.
Like every modern operating system, language, and programming tool of any importance, Mac OS X and the iPhone’s operating system (also OS X) were built using the C programming language. Not the Objective-C programming language and Cocoa framework, not the C++ programming language, but C. Objective-C is an object-oriented language built using C.
Cocoa is a framework that hides difficult C programming tasks with easy-to-use objects programmed in Objective-C. But behind every Cocoa object you construct, you find C code defining the construct.
Installing an application on an iPhone or iPod touch requires iPhone Developer membership. After you have a membership, installing an application is not difficult, as Apple’s Developer Portal provides step-by-step instructions. Membership in the iPhone Dev Center on the Developer Connection Web site is a prerequisite to downloading the iPhone SDK. However, to install applications and eventually sell applications on the App Store requires membership in the iPhone Developer Program. Apple offers two membership types: corporate and individual. You must apply, pay a $99 fee, and receive acceptance before becoming a full individual member. After becoming a member, you are granted access to the iPhone Developer Program’s Program Portal. This site is where you obtain certificates, assign new devices, create application IDs, and create provisioning profiles.
Up until the release of the iPhone OS 3.0, the iPhone was a difficult platform for developing multimedia applications. The capabilities were there, as you could always resort to using low-level C APIs to program audio and video, but the higher-level APIs were strictly undocumented and off limits. And as for the multimedia on a device that was placed there by iTunes?
Forget it, off limits. Any media you wished playing in your application had to either be packaged as part of your application or streamed from a server. That restriction changed with iPhone OS 3.0; now you can access and play a user’s audio iTunes multimedia, making the iPhone and iPod touch the most programmable portable music players ever released. Explore the basic multimedia capabilities of the iPhone and iPod touch.
You first learn how to play system sounds and longer sounds. You then move to the Media Player framework, where you use the framework to select and play a user’s iTunes audio multimedia. After learning to play iTunes media, you then learn how to play a video using the Media Player framework’s video player.
Once you get this far and you’re up and running with the iPhone SDK, I recommend reading these books to further your knowledge and getting building your own iPhone and iTouch applications.
Two of those who saw it described it to me independently, one of them saying it was “shocking.” It is of Jackson, his eyes wide open, lying on his back on a metal autopsy table. The picture is of Jackson’s head only, and taken from the corpse’s left side, from someone who was standing, and at about a 30-degree angle toward the body.
The front of the pop star’s skull is shaved. His ashen face is stripped of any makeup. The lips are flat and wide, but without lipstick. A scar, which he had hidden under makeup whenever he went out, is visible on his left check. His tattooed eyebrows are the only other visible mark on his face.
One executive who saw it, although not a professional photographer, told The Daily Beast that he was certain it was “not a cellphone picture. The quality was far too good.”
