NBC Is Ready to Name Weir and Lipinski as Its Top Figure Skating Broadcast Team - NYTimes.com
"Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski, whose critical, entertaining and fashion-conscious figure skating analysis on NBCSN drew praise during the Winter Olympics in Sochi, have earned an expected promotion to the lead team for the sport on the NBC Sports Group. NBC will announce the change Wednesday. “Tara and Johnny are a very authentic team,” Jim Bell, the executive producer of NBC Olympics, said in a telephone interview. “They’re fun and fresh. They’re not afraid to offer strong opinions and come back and take a selfie on Instagram.” He added: “You look for their kind of chemistry. You can’t make it up.” Lipinski and Weir will be the prime-time voices of figure skating for NBC during the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, but will start in their new roles during the NBC broadcast of Skate America on Sunday. They are replacing Scott Hamilton, the 1984 Olympic men’s ice skating gold medalist, who began calling the Winter Olympics for CBS in 1992, and Sandra Bezic. Tracy Wilson, NBC’s ice dancing and scoring analyst, survived the cast changes." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Terry Gannon, who hosted the NBCSN coverage with Lipinski and Weir, will take over for Tom Hammond. Hamilton will become a special correspondent for major figure skating events, like the Winter Olympics and the United States nationals. Weir, Lipinski and Gannon were on the air from Sochi for hours at a time on NBCSN, calling every figure skating routine except for those in the new team... more... - Jessie
I missed the Olympics this year because of no TV but I remember hearing about them. Good to know I can still see them in the future. - Jessie

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

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. http://www.peruviantimes.com/14... - bentley

Have you ever bought a Macbook battery off Ebay/somewhere? How did that work out for you?
The old ones that are user-replaceable without voiding the warranty? I used to buy them all the time from MacMall and MacConnection: no problems. Haven't bought any of the aftermarket batteries when the switched to the non-user-replaceable ones, though. - Mark Trapp
intriguing... - Meg VMeg
Yes I have bought them for my old Macbook Pro with no problems. I just read reviews first and then found that model on cheapest site. - Steve C Team Marina
I would avoid used, because MacBook replaceable batteries warp, and you won't know if it's warped until you install it and your machine kernel panics. #btdt #severaltimes - RepoRat
If you need a 2007 model MBP (pre-unibody) battery let me know. I bought a replacement battery but the laptop it's in died. The battery itself is probably fine - I can meter it and see if it still seems to be in shape and if so send it to you. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

Here's Why Facebook Never Created a 'Dislike' Button | Adweek - http://www.adweek.com/adfreak...
Here's Why Facebook Never Created a 'Dislike' Button | Adweek
"In an interview with the creator of the Like button, former Facebook CTO Bret Taylor (who these days runs mobile app Quip), TechRadar reports that a Dislike button was often discussed but consistently scrapped because "the negativity of that button has a lot of unfortunate consequences." While the Like button was born largely to unclutter feeds riddled with positive one-word comments like "wow" and "cool," Taylor says, Facebook felt that it was actually better to corner the more negative users into leaving a comment explaining their opinions. "I have the feeling that if there were to be a 'Dislike' button is that you would end up with these really negative social aspects to it," Taylor says. "If you want to dislike something, you should probably write a comment, because there's probably a word for what you want to say."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet

A family outing, then a deadly Border Patrol shooting - LA Times
"Border Patrol agents fired their weapons in 960 encounters over the last eight years, according to Border Patrol records. Including Arevalo, 30 people were killed, with at least 10 of those in incidents alleged to involve rock-throwing and eight on the Mexican side of the border. Unlike domestic police departments, the 20,833-member Border Patrol — the federal government's largest law enforcement agency — releases almost no public information about shootings, including the outcome of any investigations. No one in the Border Patrol has been formally disciplined or fired for any of the deaths or other shooting incidents, according to Mark Morgan, head of internal affairs at Customs and Border Protection, the Border Patrol's parent agency." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Was just discussing this with co-worker - I'm not allowed to go to Knotts Scary Farm (Halloweened out amusement park here in Oct) or similar Halloween scare the beejezus out of you places. My fight or flight instinct is set to fight so if something jumps out at me I punch it in the face then kick it in the balls then call its mother names.
The 16 year olds playing zombies for minimum wage probably deserve better than that. - Steve C Team Marina
I was nearly thrown out of Knotts Scary Farm years and years ago for inserting myself (and thus touching them) between a cast member and a little kid he was terrifying. - Soup in a TARDIS
Oh, Steve! I can just imagine this. Probably for the best that you don't go. XD - Spidra Webster

http://www.craftychica.com/2014... Found one!! Totally going to play with this. - Gabrielle
Steve C., it's an animated version of a folk tale involving the Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...). It reminded me a bit of A Nightmare Before Christmas in terms of tone and style, but very different visuals. - Stephen Mack
Gabrielle, omg, that looks so fantastic. - Stephen Mack
What age range do you think it's appropriate for? - Steve and 4 other people
I'd say 10+ to be honest. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
As I understand it, del Toro helped it get out & distributed, but it's the work of Jorge Gutierrez https://twitter.com/mexopolis - Spidra Webster
That's a good point. But I felt like del Toro had a lot of influence. You get a sense of that in this interview: http://www.iamrogue.com/news... and also this one: http://thefilmexperience.net/blog... - Stephen Mack

'Airbender' tax credit shows how far states will go to woo filmmakers - LA Times
"What happened next was not unlike the magic on screen. The visual effects were largely produced in San Francisco, but the film studio was given a tax credit as though they had been done in Pennsylvania. Citing "special circumstances," the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development granted Paramount a waiver that allowed the studio to claim a 25% tax credit on $29 million in visual effects work performed outside the state, according to a Nov. 12, 2008, letter to Paramount obtained by the Los Angeles Times in a public records request. The waiver saved the studio about $7 million. Or, put another way, it cost Pennsylvania that much in lost tax revenue." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
To woo any big business, really. The tax breaks system is like the credit based economy, imo. It snowballed and got all backwards. If all the tax breaks stopped, and everyone no matter the state had to do business on that same level, wouldn't we have fewer budget deficits? I seems likely. - Michael W. May
Yeah, this stuff is crazy. I really want to see film jobs stay in CA, but don't feel good about just getting into a race to the bottom with other states to see who can give away the most from the public coffers. To fucking corporations, too. - Spidra Webster

When Iggy Pop can’t live off his art, what chance do the rest have? - The Globe and Mail
"have a soft spot for Iggy Pop, partly because I interviewed him once and he was the soul of charm and erudition, like a particularly smart music professor who just happened to be wearing leather pants and eyeliner. On stage, he’s awe-inspiring, dancing like an electrified Twizzler. (I mean that as the highest possible compliment.) He still makes lean, ferocious music. At least he used to. As the head Stooge and godfather of punk revealed this week, he can’t actually live off music any more. Not that Iggy ever had the commercial clout of say, Justin Bieber – which is proof, if you needed, of a god-shaped hole in the universe – but he struggled along from label to label, alienating executives here, picking up new fans over there. But a new reality has tripped him up and it’s the same one shafting artists all across the world: Namely, that everyone wants to listen, and no one wants to pay. This week, Iggy gave a lecture for the British Broadcasting Corp. called Free Music in a... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

50 Books Every Parent Should Read to Their Child – Flavorwire
"According to a new study, the hallowed practice of bedtime reading is falling by the wayside — and that some quarter of a million children in the UK do not own a single book. This is a terrible shame, as regular bedtime stories have been shown to increase children’s performance in school, and are also awesome and can help create strong lifetime bonds, both with literature and with parents. So, from the peanut gallery of those who loved being read to (and still wouldn’t say no to a bedtime story): 50 books that every parent should read to their child. For the purposes of this list, we’re only considering books aimed primarily at children under 10 (according to the School Library Journal), which means you won’t find outstanding children’s chapter books like The Hobbit, A Wrinkle in Time, Patricia C. Wrede’s Enchanted Forest Chronicles, or C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia here, nor will you find mention of your favorite bespectacled wizard — the idea being that these are books kids are... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
