Yoenis Cespedes trade: The A's now have 10,000 worthless "La Potencia" t-shirts - Extra Mustard - -
"The A's and Red Sox made the first major move of the MLB trade deadline when Yoenis Cespedes was traded to Boston for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. There's just one problem: Oakland was supposed to give away Cespedes-themed t-shirts on Saturday." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

With 'The Voyager,' Jenny Lewis feels the album magic - LA Times
"It's nerve-wracking, perhaps, but confronting old troubles is precisely what Lewis, 38, does on her superb new solo album, "The Voyager," which came out Tuesday to rave reviews. Failed romances, Rilo Kiley's breakup, the death of her estranged father — the singer addresses them all in songs that blend bruising introspection with a sly sense of humor. But though the material can be heavy — "When I look at myself, all I can see / I'm just another lady without a baby," she sings in "Just One of the Guys" — the music shimmers with weightless melodies and grooves that recall classic California pop by the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Turn for a second to reach for the new diaper to be applied and find the boy filling every orifice on his face with pee. He's a good shot. Luckily a good sport too as it made him smile. I'll take the smile over 3 extra minutes of clean up any day.

Generation of tanners sees spike in deadly melanoma - Cancer - MSN Healthy Living
"The surgeon general's "call to action" plan is part of a broader push this year by government officials and public health advocates to raise awareness on what they say has become a major public health problem. While other cancers such as lung cancer are decreasing, skin cancer is rising rapidly. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 5 million people are treated for skin cancer each year. And the number of Americans with skin cancer in the past three decades eclipse the number of all other cancers combined." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Time to look for the reciept - Steve C
Did you buy the extended warranty? - Kristin
Oh god that's terrible. I'm sorry to hear he's feeling bad. Is it an ear infection maybe? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Looks like it was just a temporary episode with the silver lining being he set an all time record of 5 hours straight sleep after 6 hours of being awake and angry at the world. Tummy troubles suspected or dismay over the Ukraine situation. - Steve C
Glad to hear he finally slept. :) - Anne Bouey

Question for current or previous owner/operators of small human beings: How much poopin' is too much poopin'? The boy likes to deliver one to two four squirt diapers a day of breast milk which you know leaves a small brown lake of probably 4 ounces each time. The books all say they may go through a period of no pooping. But nothing on regularity.
Yes we'd see pediatrician if thought there was a problem I'm just asking. - Steve C
You can call your pediatrician to ask over the phone though. Or even talk to a nurse in the office. I do it all the time! Sorry I can't answer the question though. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
That's about what M does too. Sometimes it's every diaper change, like 4 in a row a day. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Ours were all prodigious poopers, and 4 +/- 2 per day was normal for them. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Great thanks peeps I'll let the wifey know. And I always forget Zulema we can call pediatrician with our silly questions - Steve C
Sounds pretty normal to me. Gross, but normal. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Yup. Poopin' is wildly variable, in my experience -- for a few months, when really exclusively breastfed, she pooped all the poops all the time. Now, when she's 50/50 with formula, she poops every few days (in massive quantities!). Baby poop is a mystery. - Jenica
It has always amazed me how much can come out of someone so small. - MAMA VAL#GOSCARLETTGO
Just wait till you get to solids.....I have never in my life seen anything so small produce so much. - Mary Carmen
mine also pooped that much or more. what a mess. eta: what mc says about solids. ms 2 produces more than my dog who is 90lbs - Christina Pikas
oh, and as long as no signs of dehydration and there's plenty of weight gain, sky's the limit, imo. but of course your pediatrician would be happy to talk to you about it or if your insurance has a nurse line - Christina Pikas

"The future of retail: manufactured by a 3-D printer, delivered by drone. That's the sci-fi scenario Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) is inching closer to with the launch this week of its 3-D Printing Store, which offers shoppers over 200 products, including toys, jewelry and home decorations. The items are produced via 3-D printer, and can be customized by size, color, material or with personal text and images. A "personalization widget" lets you play around with different designs and preview your purchase before you buy." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Hmm I should probably be concerned about the dude checking for gas leaks outside the office but I am more concerned with how enthralled the gas checker man is with his cell phone call distracting from checking for said leaks. He's a walker talker but alas not a walker checker talker so there is lots of aimless spinning at moment.

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.

"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

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.

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
