 MOVIES 

Over all I found the Oscars to be well ok. No real shockers like last year.
When Katheren Bigelow won over James Cameron or the Hurt Locker over Avatar.
Jame and Ann were ok. James looked stoned to me. Ann had a great musical number
where she really ripped on Hugh Jackman. I loved that. She was really able to look like
she loved being there. James no so much. Kurt Douglas is still alive?
I was a little shocked to see them wheel a zombie out there and then let him talk for so long.
 
Highlight of the night. Melissa Leo dropping the F-bomb and Christian Bale forgettign
his wife's name. Also loved Russell Brand and Helen Mirren. They had me rolling.
 
So our little game goes like this. Get a pick right no shot. get a pick wrong take a shot.
Simple enough. Over all winner gets to pass out an extra shot. Over all loser gets an extra shot.
For me since I no longer Drink when I get one wrong I'll have to do a line of Charlie Sheen,
He claims no one can do a line of him and live. I'll try it.
 
So the winners are.

SUPA powered cord-free display courtesy of Fujitsu

Wireless displays are fun.  CORD-FREE displays are a lot more fun.  Yes, at CeBIT this week
visitors of Hanover, Germany were able to check out what Fujitsu claims is the world's first 
totally wireless desktop display...and that means wireless power as well.  The display's graphic
feed was handled via wireless USB while the power was flowing through the newly (proposed)
standard for wireless power, SUPA.  SUPA can currently deliver 25 watts which won't exactly
power your local server farm but it might come in handy with, say a 22" Fujitsu monitor or your
battery powered gadgets that you can't do without.  Apparently the 22" monitor was hanging on
the edge of the prototype's limitations but it's still an important first strike towards cable clutter.

UK removes breast milk ice cream from show







LONDON –

Local government officials said Monday

they have confiscated ice cream made with human breast milk

from a London shop amid concerns the dessert is unsafe.

 

A spokeswoman from Westminster City Council

said it was responding to two complaints from the public

over whether a shop should be selling edibles

made from other people's bodily fluids

and awaiting guidance from Britain's Food Standards Agency.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with council policy.

 

The official said the ice cream, marketed as "Baby Gaga" and launched last week,

is being tested with the full cooperation of The Icecreamists,

the parlor marketing the dessert.

 

Viruses, including hepatitis, can be passed on through breast milk.

 

The company has said that the milk was screened in line with blood donor requirements,

before being pasteurized and churned together with vanilla pods and lemon zest.

The dish comes in a martini glass and sells for 14 pounds ($22.50) each.

 

"As far as we are aware

there is no law prohibiting a business from selling breast milk ice cream,

" Matt O'Connor, founder of The Icecreamists, said in a statement.

 

The company paid women who responded to an online ad to donate their breast milk

and said all of its products meet the "highest and safest" of food standards.

The company said it has had a "huge response" to its "fresh take"

on the world of ice cream.

The Icecreamists said at the time that its "Baby Gaga"

ice cream sold out as soon as it launched on Friday,

but that women had signed up to donate more milk.

 

 

 

Man accused driving golf cart drunk

 

 

 

 

BROOKSVILLE, Fla., March 1 (UPI) --

Authorities in Florida said a man spotted driving a golf cart against traffic

had a blood-alcohol content more than three times the legal limit.

 

Hernando County sheriff's deputies

said they pulled the golf cart over after midnight Saturday

when it was spotted traveling against traffic in Brooksville,

Hernando Today reported Tuesday.

 

The deputies said the driver, Eric Perez, 36, smelled strongly of alcohol

and displayed bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and swaying while standing,

the Brooksville newspaper said.

 

Perez told the deputies he had been drinking

but said he did not believe he was impaired.

Deputies said Perez's passenger, Jeffery Snyder,

said he had also been drinking and appeared more impaired than Perez.

Perez was taken to the Hernando County Jail,

where breath tests measured his blood-alcohol content at 0.251 and 0.242,

more than three times Florida's legal limit of 0.08.

 

Snyder was taken home and the golf cart was returned to Frontier Campgrounds,

where it is used by staff.

It was unclear how the two men came to be traveling in the golf cart.

 


Handcuffed burglary suspect drives off in police car


 

 

 

 

(Reuters) - A 19-year-old Henderson,

Nevada man arrested for burglary managed to drive off in a police car on Wednesday,

despite wearing handcuffs, only to be nabbed on foot a few hours later.

 

The unidentified burglary suspect drove off in the police car

while officers stood outside their Chevrolet Tahoe shortly after apprehending him,

on suspicion of attempting to break into a nearby home,

police spokesman Todd Rasmussen said.

 

While sitting in the back seat of the patrol car,

the suspect managed to slide his handcuffed hands behind his back

and scramble through a square-foot-wide opening in a plexiglass window

separating the back from the driver's seat.

 

"He was pretty thin," Rasmussen said.

 

The suspect then drove off while still handcuffed,

making it as far as a softball field about two miles away, Rasmussen said.

Authorities found the car using its built-in GPS,

and shortly after that discovered the suspect hiding between nearby houses.
