It would be nice to have a day that wasn't mentally taxing and exhausting.

Way more people are going to die of the flu this season than all the people who have died from Ebola since the virus was discovered 38 years ago.

Kenny G Is Involved in the Hong Kong Democracy Protest Story
"The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a long-awaited official statement on Kenny G: “Kenny G’s musical works are widely popular in China, but China’s position on the illegal Occupy Central activities in Hong Kong is very clear,” a Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, said at a daily news briefing on Wednesday. “We hope that foreign governments and individuals speak and act cautiously and not support Occupy Central and other illegal activities in any form.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
" The backstory: Kenny G is well-known in China, and his song "Closing Time" is played ubiquitously there (often in public spaces at, yes, closing time). This week he visited the site of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, tweeting about the demonstrations in mild terms: Many of those who have condmned the protests, including the Chinese government, have claimed that they are in part... more... - Jessie

Cheeky Raccoon Busts Out of Animal Exhibit, Prompts 2-Week-Long Rescue Effort | News | The Moscow Times -
"A raccoon that broke free from a touring animal exhibition in the Smolensk region has finally been found after a volunteer search party spent two weeks scouring the city for him. The raccoon, Venya, had outsmarted his human masters by hiding in the one place least likely to be checked: the very building where the "World of Animals" exhibition was being held. "A few days ago, [the building's] administrator notified us that in the theater where the animals were being exhibited, strange things had started to happen," the organizer of the exhibition was cited as saying Monday by local news outlet Smolenskaya Gazeta. "The food was disappearing, then somebody was scattering talcum powder around," the organizer, identified only as Alexei, told the publication. After nearly two weeks searching the city streets after Venya's disappearance on Sept. 24, he was spotted in a small crook in the ceiling above the movie theater screen." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Man Fights Off Bear With Old Computer in Siberia | News | The Moscow Times -
Man Fights Off Bear With Old Computer in Siberia | News | The Moscow Times
"A man rummaging for scrap metal at a dump in western Siberia had technology to thank after an old computer helped him fend off a hungry bear. The unidentified man was looking for non-ferrous metals at a dump in the Tomsk region on Saturday when he was spotted by the bear, which immediately rushed toward him, the Interfax news agency reported Monday, citing local ranger Sergei Yelnikov. When the man saw the bear coming, he picked up a computer that was lying nearby and threw it at the animal, before both ran away in opposite directions, the report said. "The villager hardly suffered at all; he injured his hand when throwing the device at the bear," Yelnikov was quoted as saying." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Golden Gate Bridge considers charging bicyclists, pedestrians - SFGate -
Golden Gate Bridge considers charging bicyclists, pedestrians - SFGate
"Expect to see a sea of spandex filling the usually staid chambers of the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District on Friday when directors consider charging a toll for bicyclists and pedestrians to cross the landmark bridge. And don’t expect those bodies in spandex to be very pleased. “Really? I think that’s stupid,” said Joanna Del Mundo, 26, a nurse from Fremont who was wearing a Giants jersey and walking on the bridge Tuesday. “I mean, it’s a public bridge, a public sidewalk. I think it would hurt some people’s access to the bridge.” Bicyclists, many of whom commute daily across the bridge, are likely to show up in force as the 19-member Board of Directors contemplates a financial strategy that includes evaluating the possibility of charging cyclists and walkers to use the sidewalks. Cyclists, including members of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, have battled the notion of bike tolls before, and are likely to do so again. “We expect it to be a very vocal... more... - Me from Bookmarklet
Hmm. How that deficit happen in the first place? How is $5 per car not enough to pay for the bridge's expenses? As vehicles, bikes are certainly something to look toward putting a toll on but I think I agree with SFBC that with things the way they are, you don't want to deter people from adopting a smog-free vehicle commute. - Spidra Webster
That's crazy. I would think that would backfire and just encourage more people to get back in their cars creating more traffic. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!

"The Atomettes are meeting again — as they have for 65 years. What began in 1949 as a social club of seven young Japanese American girls finding refuge from exclusion and racism is still going strong today — a bond of friendship that has endured through college and careers, marriage and motherhood, surgeries and deaths." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Maybe we should build some sort of camps or something, and provide "free housing" for all of the Americans of African descent; you know, just to be safe. #racism - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
And since Mexico is part of Africa we'll have to include Mexican American's in that housing. Ugh - Steve C Team Marina
Obviously, Steve. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

How about this one? Fisherman from Equatorial Guinea (different country than Guinea) has been at sea for two months. Landed in northern Peru on October 9. Two days later, went to Lima to board a plane to fly back home, but he "showed signs of a fever and other symptoms associated with Ebola." They put him in the hospital, even though they don't think he has ebola. - bentley

Note, why you obtain an ankle injury in Mesquite playing golf because you refuse to pony up for better fitting shoes, then you constantly walk around, stand for a concert, give a walking tour of the strip to your friends, not really notice because of all the fun and drinking, and then wake up Monday morning wondering how your going to fit into...

No One's Buying iPads Because iPads Are Forever -
No One's Buying iPads Because iPads Are Forever
"Today, Apple trotted out its quarterly earnings, as public companies will do. Massive revenue! iPhone sales up! Mac sales up! iPad sales… well. Okay, so not everything was a hit. But don't confuse Apple's declining tablet sales with the vanishing of the iPad. Tablets aren't dying; they just live forever. It's not that Apple's not selling any iPads at all; it still moved 12.3 million tablets over the summer. But that's down 13 percent from a year ago, an opposite trajectory to the growth that the iPhone and Mac lines experienced in the same time. It's caused a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth among Apple observers™—what a job description!—but it doesn't mean that tablets in general or the iPad in specific are over. Here's the iPad's real growth problem: If you bought one in the last two and a half years, you have no reason buy another one. None whatsoever. Does your iPad have a Retina display? Good. You can replace it when you accidentally drop it in the toilet, and no sooner.... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
I have to say I don't feel I've outgrown my iPad 2 yet. If I had a good income, I'd get a new iPad just to have something lighter with a better camera and display, but I don't feel like I've outgrown my current one. Whereas I feel the "headroom" on my old Mac laptops all the time due to software bloat for basic web browsing stuff. - Spidra Webster
I kinda feel the storage restriction because games, esp, are really big space hogs. Also, I'm envious of the more powerful CPUs and GPUs, but high production value games aren't important enough on iPad to drive me (or most people, I'd think) to upgrade. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, I've only got one game (and it's an educational one). I also don't use my iPad for massive photo storage. - Spidra Webster

Author Stalks Anonymous Blogger Who Gave Her a 1-Star Review -
Author Stalks Anonymous Blogger Who Gave Her a 1-Star Review
"On Friday, The Guardian posted a piece by author Kathleen Hale, a well-connected young author who once became so obsessed with the writer of a one-star review of her novel on Goodreads that she stalked her, only to find that the critic was using a fake name and identity. Can you pick a side yet? I'm on Team Nobody. The story—at least how Hale tells it—goes a little something like this. Hale's publisher, HarperTeen, sent advance copies of her novel to book bloggers to get a sense of what they thought of it. The bloggers were then expected to post their assessments to sites like GoodReads, hopefully generating buzz prior to its release. Hale was warned to avoid GoodReads like teen YouTube stars are warned to avoid reading their comment sections. But, also like a teen YouTube star, Hale was unable to resist. And once she began picking at it, she couldn't stop herself. It didn't take long before things Got Weird." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

I read her article on Saturday and I'm still disgusted at her and the Guardian for publishing it. No one likes trolls, but all that legwork to unmask someone who is just annoying you was stupid. - Anika
It sounds like her fiance's family has connections to The Guardian, which explains a lot about how she got a podium to justify her potentially illegal behavior. Just sickening. This woman was clearly not ready for publishing. - Jessie
I need someone who speaks Chinese to ask me about the Colts vs. Bengals game so I can say it was "馬馬虎虎", but I feel like that is not going to happen. :-( #chinesepunfail

Poor kitty! Did she make it to the vet yet? - Katy S
twice, in fact. we are not 100% sure what's going on yet. will be starting antibiotics in case there is an underlying bacterial infection somewhere. her kidney/liver numbers yesterday were not good at all, so I am hoping it is the infection and not the more serious reason. she is stable at the moment, and the vet was pleased with how she is doing so far today, so we just have to watch and wait. - holly #ravingfangirl
Aw, poor girl. I hope she's feeling much better very soon. - Jennifer Dittrich

I hope she is feeling better soon and it's "just" something that the antibiotics can knock out. - vicster: full-bodied

When I look at the cost of our daughter's hospitalization, along with the ER & ambulance bill, I am so grateful for the health insurance we get through Eric's job. But however grateful I am, I do not look forward to paying our portion.

My Sundays at work would go so much better if I didn't have both of my problem children working at the same time. I'm not sure if it's good that one is remote and the other local. It provides differing challenges. Sadly for them, I'm on the backend of my two 16 hours shifts so my patience and caring are always dwindling by now.
Problem children need to be frightened into good behavior at times. Let them have wee taste of side eye. - Janet from FFHound!
Last week I saw a Facebook post from about an upcoming spay/neuter event, and even tho I have chihuahuas not pit bulls, I texted them to ask if they had spots open for us. They texted back that pitties come first, but depending on turnout they might be able to help.
So I got a text at noon saying Bring em down & me, Jayden, Daisy & Violet were there in 15 minutes! And not only are Violet & Daisy getting free spays, but full vaxx & microchips!!! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
