'Clifford the Big Red Dog' creator Norman Bridwell has died - LA Times
"Norman Bridwell, creator of the "Clifford the Big Red Dog" children's books, died Friday in Martha's Vineyard, Mass., his publisher Scholastic announced. Bridwell was 86."“He’s red and he’s warm. Clifford does what you’d like to do but can’t," Bridwell said of his famous character. "Because Clifford is so big and also because he’s a dog, he’s able to do the most unbelievable and imaginative things.”The first Clifford book was published in 1963. All told, there are more than 129 million copies of the many Clifford books in print in 13 languages. The character was also been the basis of an Emmy-award winning animated television show on PBS. - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Congress quietly ends federal government's ban on medical marijuana - LA Times
"Under the provision, states where medical pot is legal would no longer need to worry about federal drug agents raiding retail operations. Agents would be prohibited from doing so. The Obama administration has largely followed that rule since last year as a matter of policy. But the measure approved as part of the spending bill, which President Obama plans to sign this week, will codify it as a matter of law." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Did European scientists find dark-matter signal buried in X-rays? - LA Times
"Scientists say they may have discovered a possible dark matter signal coded in the X-rays emanating from two bright objects in the sky. The findings, set to be published next week in Physical Review Letters, could offer tangible evidence for the existence of dark matter -- and help researchers build new tools to search for and study this mysterious stuff." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Amazon.com: fire tv stick
Well we have received and can report back on the Amazon Fire TV stick and the word of the day is awesome. Still cleaning up the curtains from being unable to contain excitement. Basically you plug in the usb to your tv and power outlet and you have all of amazon's media library at your fingertips."Your partner in Prime—Enjoy unlimited access to more than 40,000 movies and TV episodes with Prime Instant Video, including The HBO Collection, and original shows like Transparent and Alpha House, plus new Prime Music Instant streaming with ASAP—No more waiting for your movies and shows to buffer—ASAP learns what movies and shows you like so they start instantly Dedicated remote and app for easy use—With the Amazon Fire TV Remote that comes in the box or the free app on your Android device (iOS coming soon), you have all the controls you need to easily search, navigate, and play games" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
We dont have netflix or anything like that so can't tell if it's a duplicate or replaces that but basically everything on amazon prime (if you have prime) is available straight to your tv including your music and apps and stuff. Without prime you still get it all just fewer movies. - Steve C Team Marina
I think they threw the "TV" in the middle of the name so people wouldn't relate it to VD. Didn't work. - Kristin from iPhone
It's not a duplicate. I have Netflix & Hulu, they all offer different things, so having the apps on the Stick are good. My kids like watching on Prime, but their selection is crap for my tastes. It's a good doohickey. Did you pair it with a mobile device? That's pretty cool, but the app for the device is stupid. - Anika
When does the parenting thing from move from thoroughly exhausting into any other phase? When they leave for college?
Not sure. I have one in his second year of college and it hasn't gotten any less exhausting yet. It's a different kind of exhausting, but exhausting nonetheless. - WebGoddess
Death? - Soup in a TARDIS
Why do people have these things again then? - Steve C Team Marina
So they'll have someone to empty the dishwasher? (This is what my dad always claimed :P ) - Soup in a TARDIS

All joking aside, I think every month gets slightly less exhausting (sleep regressions & teething excluded). YMMV - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
9 months was pretty awesome until we stopped sleeping because teething. - Jenica from iPhone
14 is ok. But we only have one. I had to ask him to clean out the dishwasher. Again. - Joe
Dang Jenica you got to 9 months pre teething, We hit that at 5 months and sleep now down to 1.5 hours at a time. His first two teeth are in looks like two more locked and loaded for arrival. - Steve C Team Marina
After 3 years old I think. They can express themselves fairly well then and they want to help out (at least until the teen years). I'm still tired a lot: driving, homework, drama, etc. But it's a good tired. I like being a dad. Edit: As to "why"? *shrug* The best explanation I ever heard was, "It's in the blood." Biological/evolutionary imperative I guess. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
There's a period of time in the early teen years where all they do is sleep. That's a nice phase. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I found I had a lot more free time when they learned to drive. - Ken Morley
^^This. Too bad I spent it worrying about all the other idiots in cars out there, just driving around until they crossed paths with my kid. Fortunately, this never actually happened and he's yet to get in a wreck. **knock on wood** - WebGoddess
^^ I was more worried about the other drivers. ;) - Ken Morley
We were doing so well until teething started a week ago. Now we're in the phase where she doesn't sleep for more than an hour at a time and that's pretty hellacious. - Brian Johns
There is a bubble between ~12 and the midpoint of high school (US version). They start to get more human after that as the various parts of their brains finish wiring up. observation: Helicopter parenting extends the bubble significantly.Facing and overcoming responsibilities on their own (with overt support and maybe a bit of help from behind the curtain) in high school will significantly ease things. - David Lounsbury

Good God those Hobbit movies are still going? I thought that stuff was done a few years ago. I saw part of one on TV a long time ago but lost interest quickly as nothing seemed to be getting anywhere.
SteVe, yes, they must still escape from the Pit of Golgorroth and bring the ring to the Valley of the Master Forgers in Breeland before Sarugon summons the Balgag to rain destruction on the veiled city of Minith Tirash. Larry Freeman is very good in this. Plus the dragon Schmaaaaawwwwg is leading the five armies (consisting of Wargs, Hobknobs, South Hadarites, Hadoop Masters and... more... - Stephen Mack

No, this is the Schmilmarillion. Totally different. - Andrew C (✔)
So, 42-part saga? They squeezed four movies out of *The Hobbit* after all. - Victor Ganata

Bariatric surgery in a pill takes a step forward - LA Times
"It's more of a glimmer of hope on the horizon than it is an actual drug right now. But an Indiana University lab has synthesized and fused a trio of gut hormones into a single agent and shown that obese rodents treated with the resulting molecule experience dramatic weight loss and a reversal of obesity-related ills such as Type 2 diabetes and fatty liver disease. Reporting their latest findings this week in the journal Nature Medicine, the authors of the new study described a cascade of synergistic effects in lab animals in response to the three-hormone agent the researchers devised. The researchers likened the results in lab animals to the subtle and far-reaching changes brought about in human patients following bariatric surgery, who not only experience weight loss in response to gastric bypass surgery, but often an abrupt reversal of Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, inflammation and worrisome cholesterol readings." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
I'll be dead by the time this comes out - "They engineered a single new peptide by integrating three gastrointestinal hormones at the molecular level (glucagon-like peptide-1, glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide, and glucagon receptors). Those act on three key hormone receptors that govern metabolism and digestion, nudging them to work cooperatively to support weight loss, enhance glycemic control and reverse the accumulation of damaging fat in the liver." - Todd Hoff

Deal reached to allow pension plans to cut benefits
"A bipartisan group of congressional leaders reached a deal Tuesday evening that would for the first time allow the benefits of current retirees to be severely cut, part of an effort to save some of the nation’s most distressed pension plans. The measure, attached to a massive $1.01 trillion spending bill, would alter 40 years of federal law and could affect millions of workers, many of them part of a shrinking corps of middle-income employees in businesses such as trucking, construction and supermarkets." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

So many retirees are going to be hurt by this. - John (bird whisperer)
o_O - Steven Perez
I never thought it would happen. - Eric - ill subliminal
I bet it doesn't affect congressional pensions. Not the staff, the congresspeople themselves. - bentley
For the moment it is directed at trucking, construction and supermarkets within 3 years it will be everyone as precedent has been set. - Steve C Team Marina
This crap really pisses me off. Doesn't sound like there was much representation from pensioners in this 'deal'. I'm not that familiar with multiemployer pension plans, but their operation isn't that different from single employer plans. Why have pensions plans been allowed to partially fund (underfund) pensions for years? Plans don't just sit on a pile of money, they invest it. Where is the accountability by plan administrators for plan (mis)management. - Greg GuitarBuster
I'm glad that I took the pension buyout from one of my previous employers. I wasn't there for 30 years and my pension wouldn't have been too much, but taking the lump sum seems much more secure. - Greg GuitarBuster

An end to the battle for the armrest? - CNN.com
"Could this device finally bring a peaceful end to the great arms race in the sky? That's what the makers of Soarigami, a plastic divider that allows air passengers to comfortably share an armrest, are claiming. The device, to go on sale for about $30 in early 2015, balances atop the existing armrest to create an extended leaning platform that prevents the horrors of actual physical contact." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Oh god, I was annoyed by the food in the American terminal at SFO. Sometimes a person just wants something basic. Took way too much energy and effort to find basic food that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg. I was much happier with the other end of the flight - the American terminal at O'Hare. Now that place is awesome. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Next time I want to try Cat Cora's Kitchen - forgot that was there. - Laura Norvig
Hmm Hookuh I am like you in searching for basic I can't eat most fancy food and don't like the rest but I had ample choices when looking around and the tacos at Andeleje (sp?) ended up being perfect under ten bucks for a meal and best tacos i've had in a while. But it's very subjective I know. :) - Steve C Team Marina

"Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be over, but Sprint is rolling out one of its biggest price cuts ever. The nation's No. 3 wireless carrier, which has rapidly been losing market share, announced Tuesday that it will cut in half the monthly rate plan for Verizon and AT&T customers who switch to the network. The "Cut Your Bill in Half" event begins Friday. Sprint says it will provide unlimited talk and text to anywhere in the country while on the Sprint network -- regardless of a customer's current plan -- and match his or her data allowance for half the cost they are currently paying." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Hmm frozen seems to be the answer I think i'll freeze the baby - Steve C Team Marina
Yes, frozen margaritas. - Kristin from iPhone
chilled teething rings worked well for our kids. and infant liquid Tylenol, which is no longer on the market due to lawsuits becos some ppl won't read the instructions on the package. :P - Big Joe Silence
We did the washcloth thing too, it especially helped with all the drool. For the fruits/vegetables, we had a little mesh thing that we put the fruit in, then baby could hold it and gnaw it without making a mess or choking. Both items were only put in the freezer for about 20 min. We we warned away from teething rings for various reasons, but were told if we did use it, to never freeze it, only refrigerate it. - Anika
Frozen waffles. The cold numbs, they won't hurt the kid if he ingests some, and they have built-in drool cups and absorbancy powers. - Soup in a TARDIS
Get the wash cloths wet, roll em up like taquitos, you can fit a bunch in a Ziploc, freeze em...toaster waffles straight from the freezer are great, but those and frozen fruit require supervision, don't forget. As they thaw babies can bite off pieces even with just gums. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Ohio State's Third- Now First-String Quarterback "Ain't Come To Play SCHOOL"
AKA Why I can't stand D1 college football or basketball. - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
This stuff drives me nuts, esp as people are lobbying for schools to pay athletes. School is supposed to be about school. Let the NBA, NFL, etc. pay for their own goddamned farm teams. - Spidra Webster
Pay the kid to play football clearly he is not a "student" athlete Speaking truth to power - WarLord
Sure. But let the professional football orgs pay him, not state-taxpayer-funded schools. - Spidra Webster
But the schools are making MILLIONS from football, directly and indirectly it's probably 100's of millions - end the sham pay the athletes And you are right if NFL and NBA want OSU as a farm team let them pony up some actual cash but make no mistake OSU football is making money - WarLord
The funds should be held in trust for the players and the fund only mature upon completion of acceptable grades. - Johnny from iPhone
I'm arguing for getting rid of these programs altogether if they can't be truly amateur. Just leave intramural sports and leave it at that. There are loads of sports at universities and you can bet a lot of other athletes are also taking physical risks and doing it with a lot less financial & administrative support than these guys get. I don't think you can pay NCAA football and... more... - Spidra Webster

Wow.

HBO to make film of Scientology book, hires 160 lawyers - CNN.com
"HBO is backing a documentary based on "Going Clear," a book about Scientology and Hollywood -- and isn't taking any chances with the legal side of things. "We have probably 160 lawyers" looking at the film, HBO Documentary Films President Sheila Nevins told The Hollywood Reporter. (HBO, like CNN, is a unit of Time Warner.)
