Dear neighbor i don't really know. I appreciate your concern but no, it is not a little late for the little guy to be out at 8pm. We live in So Cal. It was 75 degrees at 8pm. We live in a nice enough area. Sure we have gangs but the black gangs only shoot black gangs and the mexican and asian gangs shoot each other. Whitey here is fine.
Boy and I go out whenever mom's boobs say we need to go. Period. - Steve C Team Marina
Speaking as someone that refuses to live by other people's made up ideas of a "normal" schedule, you can take that boy out whenever you want...even at 3 am, if that's what you choose. Not like he has to be in school tomorrow morning or something. And even if he did, there is nothing that says he can't sleep when he gets home and start his day a lot earlier, when everyone is still... more... - April Russo

Jordan Downs in Watts marks three years without a homicide - The Homicide Report - Los Angeles Times -
Jordan Downs in Watts marks three years without a homicide - The Homicide Report - Los Angeles Times
""It's really incredible to think there are kids who have been in Jordan Downs for the last three years and can say, 'I’ve never seen a homicide,' " Capt. Phil Tingirides told the city's housing authority commission Thursday at a meeting in Watts. Tingirides, who has headed the Southeast LAPD station more than 7 years, said that from 2001 to 2011, 78 people were killed within the housing developments that include Nickerson Gardens, Imperial Courts and Jordan Downs. Police credit the absence of killings to a combination of efforts, including those of community activists and gang interventionists. There are also security cameras in the developments to capture criminal activity. But in 2011, LAPD, along with funding from the housing authority, launched a program called the Community Safety Partnership, which places officers on the ground in the housing developments in Watts and in Ramona Gardens in Boyle Heights. Each development is staffed with about 11 officers who walk foot beats, patrol and connect with the community through various activities like youth sports." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Robert Downey, Jr. calls 'Guardians of the Galaxy' the best Marvel movie - MSN Movies News
""Iron Man" Robert Downey, Jr. has branded the summer blockbuster "Guardians of the Galaxy" the "best Marvel movie ever." The Marvel Cinematic Universe introduced a new superhero in Peter Quill/Star Lord, played by Chris Pratt, earlier this month, and the film quickly become a hit, surpassing the $500 million mark in the global box office. In a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, Downey, Jr. graciously admits the newest addition to the Marvel family is the one to beat. He said, "Guardians of the Galaxy, in some ways, is the best Marvel movie ever. It's odd for someone with -- on occasion - an ego the size of mine to actually say that... It's like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: 'Look, this is their second cousin and we think he has a great arm and he should start.' And then he goes and wins the Superbowl!"" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Conversely, what are the albums that you loved when they came out, but when you listen now you have no idea what you were thinking?
everything STP ever did comes to mind. - Big Joe Silence
"Nevermind" by Nirvana is a prime example of this for me. I bought into the Nirvana lie right from the get go. Now I hear those songs and just marvel at how unlistenable some of them were. - Bren
That Madonna soundtrack for Who's That Girl. I should say I tried to like it. Now ... - Eric from iPhone
Anything by New Kids on the Block. ;) On a related note, I can't listen to "Nevermind" anymore; not because I think it's bad music, but because it was sooooooooooooooo overplayed in the 90's. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" I don't want to hear for the rest of my life. - Jenny H.
I'll have to go stare at my tape collection for this one but I'm sure there are plenty. - Steve C Team Marina
Any Neil Young, Talking Heads, Stevie Nicks, Bruce Springsteen, George Thorogood, Nirvana, Pearl Jam. Some timbre in their range annoys the living crap out of me. Eddie Vedder sounds like a goat in heat to me. #fridayhates - Janet from FFHound!

Gentlemen of FF, help. My kid bro's birthday is the 31st. He will be a father for the first time in December. Gift ideas, go!
I was thinking a parenting book, but I don't know good ones or something a guy would read or written for men specifically. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Not a guy, but I'd suggest a cool "kit" for remembering to document this experience of becoming a father (and the kid's becoming an adult). While people have not as much trouble obsessing over baby photos and such these days (digital makes it easier for all of us to take loads of photos), people still get really busy and forget to really live in the moment. And it goes by pretty fast.... more... - Spidra Webster

How did 21 year old me not appreciate Vitalogy? "Corduroy," "Nothingman," "Better Man," "Immortality" ... so good.
Even "Spin the Black Circle" and "Not For You" are good... most of the album is good. I think I actually threw the CD out of the window of a moving car, it annoyed me so much. I was so hung up on 10 and Vs., I guess... - Bren
silly 21 year old Bren. - holly #ravingfangirl
Right? - Bren
Top to bottom, both 10 and Vs. are better albums, though. ;) - Bren
You're not alone. I hated it when I first heard it. - Jenny H.
Credit where it's due: my brother, who was 14 or 15 when Vitalogy came out, loved it right from the moment he got it. - Bren
My friend, Dan, is a rabid PJ fan. He got so angry with my when I told him that I didn't like Vitalogy. He made me listen to it again when we were driving out to the field one day. I told him that I changed my mind. :) - Jenny H.
I dated a guy in high school who was obsessed with PJ. I couldn't stand most of their stuff. I'd call Eddie "Marble Mouth" because all the stuff the guy played for me sounded like Eddie was singing with a mouth full of marbles. I almost want to track the guy down and tell him I love PJ now. Almost, but not really. - Kristin
Back off people Eddie is mine I called dibs first time I heard him when they still called themselves Mookie Blaylock. It's a forever thing. But yeah it was especially poignant at 21 for me it's just happened to stay that way. :) - Steve C Team Marina

Denny’s Goes Upscale With $300 Champagne Brunch in NYC: Bloomberg Business News - MSN Money -
Denny’s Corp. (DENN -0.15%, news), the restaurant chain known for dishes such as the Grand Slam and Moons Over My Hammy, is opening its first diner in New York City after more than 60 years selling breakfast and late-night meals across the country. The restaurant will open at 5 a.m. tomorrow on the ground-floor of a luxury residential building on Nassau Street in lower Manhattan, across from City Hall and just north of Wall Street. The diner will offer a full bar with Prosecco on tap and a $300 brunch for two that includes a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne. The interior will be upmarket as well, with copper-stamped ceilings, wood paneling and leather booths. - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

RT @charlesmblow: On this day in 1955 Emmett Till was beaten (had his eyes gouged out), shot, killed & dumped in a river. #NeverForget
When I tell people this story and they've never heard of Till...well, it goes a long way to explain why a lot of people don't understand the context of something like #Ferguson. These are not isolated incidents. They are representative of our country. And while I can and do support the wonderful contributions that America has made to the world, I cannot ignore this. - MoTO: Team Marina
Do they still include Emmett Till in education plans? We heard his story in middle school and high school history classes growing up. - Steve C Team Marina
It's spotty, Steve. My daughter brought it to her high school instructor's attention (I don't think she'd heard of it). I believe her middle school teacher had. - MoTO: Team Marina
His story is often covered here, though it was not in my time- I admit I did not know the full details. - Pete : Team Marina
We didn't learn about it when I was in school, but then again, we never made it past World War II in history class because we'd run out of school days every time. - Katy S
I learned about it officially in college, but heard about it growing up. I remember as a kid seeing an interview clip from tv of his mother calling the trial a "farce." I didn't know the word and looked it up in the dictionary. So the meaning of the word "farce" has always been associated with Emmett Till's murder for me. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
My great aunt Lois was somewhere on the continuum of what T. Coates calls "The Politics of Respectability". She didn't subscribe to the notion that black people had to work be "good enough" for acceptance in America. Rather, despite what whites thought of us (and we never were going to be "good enough"), we still had to make things better for ourselves, in spite of the barriers. That... more... - MoTO: Team Marina
This is the first I have heard of Emmett Till. I feel cheated by my education. - Jenny H.
I knew about him, but probably because I grew up in Chicago. He's actually buried near where I grew up. When they exhumed him about ten years ago, I could see where they were working as I drove past on my way to and from work. Actually, his exhumation set off another scandal with the cemetery as it was discovered they weren't keeping records or burying properly. - Katie

Spiders force Suzuki to recall midsize cars: Associated Press Business News - MSN Money -
"Spiders have forced Suzuki to recall more than 19,000 midsize cars. The automaker says spider webs can clog a fuel vapor vent hose in some 2010 to 2013 Kizashi cars, cutting off air flow. If that happens, it can cause the gas tank to deform, causing cracks, fuel leaks and possible fires. The recall was prompted by seven reports of the problem. Service centers will replace the vent line with one that has a filter on the end. They'll also replace gas tanks if necessary." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

USC starting CB Josh Shaw injures both ankles saving nephew from pool | FOX Sports -
"Shaw looked on from a second floor balcony to the pool below and saw his 7-year-old nephew, who cannot swim, in distress without help nearby. Shaw instinctively leaped off the balcony, landing painfully on the concrete below. He was able to crawl into the pool and ushered his nephew to safety. Despite the intense pain in his legs, he was then able to grab the ladder and lift himself out of the pool with his upper body. Shaw's nephew Carter is a bit "traumatized," but physically okay. Shaw was taken to the hospital and subsequently diagnosed with two high ankle sprains, which will sideline him indefinitely.""I would do it again for whatever kid it was, it did not have to be my nephew," Shaw said today. "My ankles really hurt, but I am lucky to be surrounded by the best trainers and doctors in the world. I am taking my rehab one day at a time, and I hope to be back on the field as soon as possible." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

This Panda May Have Faked a Pregnancy So She Could Eat Better -
LOL "The first-ever live broadcast of giant panda cubs being born has suffered a major setback—the star of the show, Ai Hin, isn't actually pregnant. Zookeepers now believe she was "faking it" to get a cushier room and more food. The 6-year-old panda, housed at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, evidently mimicked signs of pregnancy—changes in appetite, energy level, and hormones—after noticing the perks pregnant pandas receive at the base." - rönin from Bookmarklet

I never thought about this before, but are the space shuttles actually capable of being flown through the air? I always assumed that landing the shuttle was really more of a controlled fall and that spaceships generally don't make good planes nor vice-versa.
I suppose the reason why they flew the shuttle on jumbo jets might simply be because jet fuel is still way cheaper than rocket fuel. - Victor Ganata
I don't think it has any engine to support regular flight. - Eric
That's what I thought. The space shuttle is the main reason why science fiction that depicts spaceships being able to fly like a plane when in the atmosphere of planet has always had a tendency to break my suspension of disbelief :D - Victor Ganata
No the space shuttle can't fly it's not designed for flight aerodynamically, weight wise, or propulsion systems. It's essentially a cinder block with rockets attached. - Steve C Team Marina
My former brother in law was in aerospace in the USAF and told me when elected officials came by for a tour they would always ask for a shuttle that could take off and land like a plane. Then he'd roll his eyes. - Eric
Nasa and or darpa have had some "space plane" projects over the years. lots of money with limited success, I think. - Christina Pikas
The Space Shuttle acts as a glider on reentry and absolutely is designed for aerodynamic flight. It generates lift and is controllable. It has a glide ratio of about 4.5 to 1, which compares to 9 to 1 for a Cessna. - Brian Johns
^This. The shuttle is technically a "lifting body" design. So, somewhat more aerodynamic than a brick. But the mythical spaceplane is actually not outside the realm of possibility; it's really a function of having a new engine technology. Like this: - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Going back to your original question, I guess it depends on what you consider "flown through the air". It is flown through the air every time it lands. But if you're talking about horizontal takeoff or powered horizontal flight, then no, it wasn't designed for that. - Brian Johns
Yeah, horizontal takeoff/powered flight. So basically the space shuttle isn't like an X-Wing or a Federation shuttlecraft or a Veritech fighter :) - Victor Ganata
I wonder if the Skylon would be able to fly out to the ISS? It's technically only "a few hundred km above the Earth" - Victor Ganata
Probably not the Skylon itself, because the ISS is in a relatively high orbit so it would require a lot of fuel. But the same technology could probably be applied to a larger air/spacecraft. Assuming it works. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Of course, something like this is going to be the preferred method for getting into low earth orbit... - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Man, if even Elon Musk thinks a space elevator is going be unfeasible for a *long* time…. Of course, he has a vested interest in it *not* becoming viable, but, still…. - Victor Ganata
