Sierra Leone's chief Ebola doctor contracts the virus
"The head doctor fighting the deadly tropical virus Ebola in Sierra Leone has himself caught the disease, the government said. The 39-year-old Sheik Umar Khan, hailed as a "national hero" by the health ministry, was leading the fight to control an outbreak that has killed 206 people in the West African country. Ebola kills up to 90 percent of those infected and there is no cure or vaccine. Across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, more than 600 people have died from the illness, according to the World Health Organisation, placing great strain on the health systems of some of Africa's poorest countries. Khan, a Sierra Leonean virologist credited with treating more than 100 Ebola victims, has been transferred to a treatment ward run by medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres, according to the statement released late on Tuesday by the president's office." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

China 'seals off' city after man dies of bubonic plague
"A Chinese city has been sealed off and 151 people placed in quarantine since last week after a man died of bubonic plague, state media said Tuesday. The 30,000 people living in Yumen in the northwestern province of Gansu are not being allowed to leave, and police at roadblocks on the perimeter of the city are telling motorists to find alternative routes, state broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) said. The 38-year-old victim died last Wednesday, the report said, and had been in contact with a dead marmot, a small furry animal which lives on grasslands and is related to the squirrel. "The city has enough rice, flour and oil to supply all its residents for up to one month," the report added. "Local residents and those in quarantine are all in stable condition."" - Steve C from Bookmarklet

If my calculations are correct, and they always are, based on babies growth rate he should be a tad under 16 feet tall by the time he's 8 years old.
LOL. How big is J now? I kinda feel the same about M. She's a month old and already 3.75" longer than she was at birth! - Tamara J. B.
At 4 weeks he was 24" I think now he's gained another inch or so. We need larger and larger shoe boxes to let him sleep in. - Steve C

5-foot-7 Japanese guard stealing spotlight at NBA Summer League (Video) | FOX Sports
"He might be shorter than everyone on the court, but 5-foot-7 guard Yuki Togashi is becoming a fan favorite during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Toga, as fans have been calling him, was invited to join the Dallas Mavericks’ summer league roster and turned in a 12-point performance in 11 minutes against the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday. Highlights from his electrifying game include 3-point shots from way downtown and even breaking out the old-school floater. Togashi played high school ball at Montrose Christian School in Rockville, Md., the same school as Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
I saw some highlights. He's no Earl Boykins but he has a quick shot. - Rodfather
If you hypothetically don't know too many nursery rhymes 80's songs work in a pinch. Just replace a few words with baby terms. This mornings example: Safety Dance - replace "dance" with "poop" or "toot" and it instantly helps soothe the baby.

Indiana law allows Satanists to perform marriages, but not Buddhists - LA Times -
Indiana law allows Satanists to perform marriages, but not Buddhists - LA Times
""At oral argument Indiana's lawyer said that the high priestess of the Church of Satan (along with Wiccans and those who worship Baal) could solemnize marriages under subsection (1), while Buddhists, many other religions, and humanists cannot," read the panel's opinion, which was written by circuit judge Frank Easterbrook. Easterbrook noted that the humanist group in the case could perform "sham" weddings and have the unions later officially solemnized by a court official -- or classify itself a religious organization and call its leader "clergy" -- but both options would be hypocritical, the judge said. "It is irrational to allow humanists to solemnize marriages if, and only if, they falsely declare that they are a 'religion,'" Easterbrook wrote. "It is absurd to give the Church of Satan, whose high priestess avows that her powers derive from having sex with Satan, and the Universal Life Church, which sells credentials to anyone with a credit card, a preferred position over Buddhists, who emphasize love and peace."" - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Dad's heartbreaking Internet plea spurs strangers
"Just days after his infant daughter's death, Nathen Steffel asked strangers on the Internet for only one thing: He and his wife wanted a photo of their daughter without the breathing tubes and tape that masked her little face. The response has been overwhelming. Hundreds of photos, sketches and paintings have poured into the family's northwestern Ohio home and their inbox. "I'm getting messages in languages from all over the world," he said Wednesday. "It's more than I can count." His daughter, Sophia, died last Thursday at a Cincinnati hospital from complications of a tumor in her liver, six weeks after she was born in Columbus. She was awaiting a transplant when she died. Her father posted a message on Reddit asking if anyone could use their photo of Sophia in the hospital and remove the tubes attached to her face and wrist. "Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes," he wrote." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Ben Kingsley to star in Spike TV's 'Tut' - MSN TV News
"Ben Kingsley has signed on for Spike TV's upcoming event series "Tut," which is slated to premiere next year, Spike's executive vice president, original series Sharon Levy said Monday. "Gandhi" star Kingsley will play Ay, the Grand Vizier to King Tutankhamun who wields tremendous power and influence as the top adviser to the young Egyptian ruler. Also from TheWrap: Ben Kingsley to Voice Bagheera in Disney's 'The Jungle Book' "Tut," which will be shot on location in Morocco and Canada, will be produced by Muse Entertainment ("The Kennedys," "Being Human"). Spike's first scripted event series in eight years, "Tut" is another peg in traditionally male-skewing Spike's ongoing efforts to reach a more gender-balanced audience. Calling "Tut" the "biggest and most ambitious project in Spike's history," Levy added that the network is "so fortunate" to have Kingsley aboard the project. "Who better to lead the cast than one of the greatest actors of our generation — Ben Kingsley," Levy said.... more... - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Small SC town rallies for fired gay police chief
"LATTA, S.C. (AP) — When openly gay police chief Crystal Moore was fired by a mayor who condemned her lifestyle as "questionable," she expected her two decade career in law enforcement was over. Then, this conservative, small town rebelled. The people of Latta, who voted overwhelmingly for a state amendment banning gay marriage eight years ago, turned against the mayor, stripped him of his powers and rehired Moore. They said her dedication to the town mattered more than her sexual orientation." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
Dear Amazon. I bought a Heavy Duty Bench Vise from you on Wednesday. I'm pretty sure a good suggestion for me to buy today is not four more Heavy Duty Bench Vises. There are only so many things to clamp.

Hilarious Flight Attendant Gays It Up For Pre-Flight Safety Speech / Queerty
"“Folks, if you don’t like the jokes or the service today, there are six ways out of this airplane,” the fabulous and completely fierce male flight attendant, dressed in neatly pressed khaki shorts and an American flag necktie, announced at the beginning of his pre-flight safety announcements. “Feel free to use them.” Passengers flying from Chicago to San Francisco were then treated to four very gay, very hilarious minutes of reminders about how to buckle their seat belts, where to locate their life preservers, and what to do in the event of a decompression that included lots of attitude, as well as references to Gone With The Wind and Bye Bye Birdie. “Now, the ladies and I certainly wouldn’t have shown up for work tonight if we had an anticipated a decompression,” the flight attendant confessed. “But in the event of a decompression, four saffron yellow buttercup masks designed by Gucci and Martha Stewart, well, they’re going to drop from that compartment overhead.” At another point,... more... - Steve C from Bookmarklet

LeBron James: "I'm coming home" to Cleveland Cavaliers -
"After four years away, King James is sensationally taking his throne back to Cleveland. LeBron James told Sports Illustrated for a story published Friday that he'll leave the Miami Heat for the Cleveland Cavaliers -- a bombshell return to his home region that he devastated when he left via free agency in 2010. "I always believed that I'd return to Cleveland and finish my career there," the four-time NBA MVP said in a piece he wrote with SI's Lee Jenkins. "I just didn't know when." "I looked at other teams," he wrote, "but I wasn't going to leave Miami for anywhere except Cleveland. The more time passed, the more it felt right. This is what makes me happy."" - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Imperiled Amazon Indians Make First Contact with Outsiders - NBC -
"Indigenous people with no prior contact to the outside world have just emerged from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil and made contact with a group of settled Indians, after being spotted migrating to evade illegal loggers, advocates say. The news, which was released Thursday (July 2), comes after sightings of the uncontacted Indians in Brazil near the border with Peru, according to the group Survival International. Officials with the organization had warned last month that the isolated tribes face threats of disease and violence as they moved into new territory and possibly encountered other people." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
As the internet is forever here's a portion of my eulogy yesterday so mom lives forever in another place.
For the benefit of those of you who did not grow up in our full house the first thing you might not know about Barbara is that she was wicked smart. A graduate of UC Davis, a voracious reader, first chair cello in her younger days, and the sole viewer of PBS's Masterpiece Theater. There was no newspaper editor who could get a mistake in grammar or punctuation past her red pen and the articles final resting place of shame on the kitchen refrigerator. - Steve C
But like all true superheroes she used her powers only for good channeling her talents to help the needy, the whiny, and the masses to be molded, aka her children. While being a supermom has come to be a trendy topic I would like to imagine that if a Tiger Mom walked up to our mom, Barbara would simply slap her across the face and turn and walk away shaking her head.

And we all got here because of mom. Because she was deathly allergic to nuts but made peanut butter sandwiches for everyone for 15 straight years. Because she was willing to drive from morning till night to get 9 kids through the infinite maze of school, band, and sports. Because she was not only at every baseball and soccer game but more than likely the team mom and scorekeeper.... more... - Steve C
When Genevieve passed away mom lost 1/9th of her heart, and she said I was the strong one. But she is the one who carried on caring for the eight of us. It is a shame to lose her when I am all of 2 weeks into this parenting thing but she gave all she was, and all she had to all of us, and that alone within me is worth more than the advice of a thousand tiger moms. - Steve C
