It’s a Small World opens at Disneyland - Framework - Photos and Video - Visual Storytelling from the Los Angeles Times
"Walt Disney joined Bank of America officials Monday in opening the newest attraction at Disneyland–a musical journal by boats through enchanted foreign lands where animated dolls perform. “It’s a Small World” is the theme of the international voyage which is based on audio-animatronics, the Disney technique of making three-dimensional figures seem alive. It was first used in the Abraham Lincoln exhibit at the Anaheim park."..."The colorful voyage was developed by Disney’s “imagineers” for the New York World’s Fair where it was enjoyed by an estimated 10 million children. Upon moving to Disneyland, the feature was lengthened by one-third." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Went to Target for the first time in a few years. It seems to have moved a lot closer to WalMart since I was away. Granted I haven't been in a WalMart in a decade so maybe there is still a decent spread.

Ex-NFL ref Mike Carey found Redskins name offensive, asked off games | FOX Sports
"“The league respectfully honored my request not to officiate Washington,” Carey said. “It happened sometime after I refereed their playoff game in 2006, I think.” “It just became clear to me that to be in the middle of the field, where something disrespectful is happening, was probably not the best thing for me,” Carey said. “Human beings take social stances,” he said. “And if you’re respectful of all human beings, you have to decide what you’re going to do and why you’re going to do it.” Carey, the first African American to referee a Super Bowl, explained that to him the backlash against the name is warranted. “I know that if a team had a derogatory name for African Americans, I would help those who helped extinguish that name,” Carey told the Post. “I have quite a few friends who are Native Americans. And even if I didn’t have Native American friends, the name of the team is disrespectful.”" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Craig Ferguson nears deal to launch new syndicated talk show in fall 2015   - NY Daily News - http://www.nydailynews.com/enterta...
"Craig Ferguson is close to a deal to launch an early-evening talk show starting in fall 2015. The outgoing host of CBS’ “The Late Late Show” would introduce his half-hour syndicated series on stations in a slot just before prime time, according to a source with knowledge of the deal who spoke on the condition of anonymity because that person wasn’t authorized to comment publicly. Ferguson is expected to bring along his robot skeleton “sidekick,” Geoff, as well as executive producer Michael Naidus." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Chairless Chair, an invisible chair that you can wear - CNN.com
"It's like a chair that isn't there, but magically appears whenever you need it. It's called the Chairless Chair and you wear it on your legs like an exoskeleton: when it's not activated, you can walk normally or even run. And then, at the touch of a button, it locks into place and you can sit down on it. Like a chair that is now there. "The idea came from wanting to sit anywhere and everywhere, and from working in a UK packaging factory when I was 17", says Keith Gunura, the 29-year old CEO and co-founder of noonee, the Zurich-based startup behind the device, "standing for hours on end causes a lot of distress to lower limbs, but most workers get very few breaks and chairs are rarely provided, because they take up too much space. So I thought that the best idea was to strap an unobtrusive chair directly to myself"." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

'Look Again to the Wind' revisits Johnny Cash's 'Bitter Tears' - LA Times
"On the heels of two of the biggest hits of his career in "Ring of Fire" and "Understand Your Man," Johnny Cash was a hot commodity in 1964 when he gave his record company an ambitious new concept album, "Bitter Tears: Ballads of the American Indian." But the label treated that album more like a hot potato because of its potentially controversial subject matter, prompting Cash to take matters into his own hands to promote a project that he consistently cited as one of the proudest moments of his storied career." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"A half-century later, "Bitter Tears" is getting another shot at recognition through "Look Again to the Wind: Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears Revisited," a new version recorded by a group of country and Americana stars. Released Tuesday, the album includes performances by Cash's friends Kris Kristofferson and Emmylou Harris as well as singer-songwriters Steve Earle, Gillian Welch and David... more... - Steve C Team Marina

I went to friends in laws for a simple giveaway pickup. I thought it was for spring cleaning. When I am leaving i ask what they are doing for the day. Putting in flooring in in laws. Then I find out he hurt his back that morning and is loopy on vicodin and their house is being auctioned in two weeks so they're trying to make in laws habitable.
Needless to say my stay extended 9 hours but I got the flooring done. - Steve C Team Marina

Huntington Gardens' stinky giant corpse flower expected to bloom soon - LA Times - http://www.latimes.com/travel...
"As Hollywood sequels go, "Stinky 5: Return of the Corpse Flower" is a lot more authentic than the usual box-office blockbusters. The super-stinky corpse flower whose giant bloom smells like rotting flesh will unleash a potent stench any day now at the Huntington Gardens in San Marino. "In case you're taking notes ... the #CorpseFlower grew another 4.5 inches last night," @TheHuntington tweeted Sunday. "This could be a biggie!" Some members also received e-mails last week about the coming Big Stinker." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Do they make house slippers with arch support? Footsies are killing me walking the little person for hours a night on the hardwood.
I don't know of any, but if you can't find slippers with arch support, maybe a good pair of sandals could fill that need. - John (bird whisperer)
For house shoes Jayden wears "sport sandals", with molded plastic bottoms, that have some arch support. We get em for $8 at Walmart but Nike, Adidas et al make them & prolly offer better support. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I alternate between Merrell flipflops and Halflinger wool clogs -- both have molded arch support in them. (And I have the luxury of having two pairs of expensive house shoes because the Halflingers last for decades -- I got them in college -- and you can buy Merrells at outlets!) If I go barefoot or in soft slippers too much, with all the baby walking I do, my plantar fasciitis and low back lose their everloving minds. - Jenica
I'd second Jenica's recommendation to look at Merrell's offerings. I have hiking boots and sandals from them, and both are really comfortable. - John (bird whisperer)
Thirding on the Merrells. You can usually find a good deal on them too and they're worth the investment (last a long time!). - Hookuh Tinypants

The 'exploding lake' that could power Rwanda - CNN.com
Currently, only 20% of Rwandan homes have power, and Ntirushwa estimates it will take at least 1,000 megawatts to power the country by 2020. While the project is still in the early stages (the plant currently extracts a mere 2.4 megawatts of power), Ntirushwa sees an enormous amount of potential. "This lake has the power to produce up to 800 megawatts. We only do 2.4, so imagine how much is left," he says. The methane resides 250 meters underneath the lake, and to extract it, engineers lower a pipe just about the layer of dissolved gas. Once captured, the gas is purified and dried. Overall, it's a cheap method for creating electricity. "It's a very rewarding job, because it's the first time [it's been done]. It's a new technology, and the people of Rwanda are very excited about it. Being a pioneer, being the first doing this, it gives some us respect." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

New outcry as Erdogan tells female reporter to 'know your place'
"Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan faced a new outcry on Friday over his attitude to the media and women after he branded a prominent female journalist a "shameless woman" and told her "to know your place". Just ahead of Sunday's presidential election which he is clear favourite to win, Erdogan savaged Amberin Zaman, who writes for the Economist and the Turkish daily Taraf, over comments she made in a television debate. She had asked the main opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu in the debate whether any Muslim society was capable of challenging its authorities. Erdogan lashed out at Zaman, without mentioning her directly by name, at an election rally in the eastern city of Malatya on Thursday, calling her a "shameless woman". "A militant in the guise of a journalist, a shameless woman... Know your place!" he declared." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"This is not the first time Erdogan has lashed out at journalists, who have come under increasing pressure in Turkey, which has more reporters behind bars than any other country in the world. The government's attitude towards women is also under heavy scrutiny, after Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc caused a furore by suggesting women should not laugh loudly in public." - Steve C Team Marina

Ultimate Warrior: One-Third Of WrestleMania VI Competitors Now Dead | ThePostGame
"The death of the Ultimate Warrior was just the latest grim reminder that professional wrestlers continue to drop dead from something other than old age at an alarming rate. The pinnacle of the Warrior's career was WrestleMania VI on April 1, 1990, at SkyDome in Toronto. Warrior defeated Hulk Hogan in the main event to win the championship. Warrior is the 12th wrestler who competed at WrestleMania VI to have died -- one-third of the card's working roster. The oldest was just 63. As a point of reference, of the 44 starting players from that year's Super Bowl between the 49ers and Broncos, only one has died: Denver defensive end Ron Holmes, who was 48 when he passed away in 2011 from diabetes and coronary issues. Reasons for wrestlers' dying early -- grueling travel schedules, painkiller abuse, steroid use -- have been well-documented. The passing of the Warrior at age 54 from what is suspected to be a heart attack just days after his induction to WWE's Hall of Fame only underscores the issue." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Drivers cited for not yielding to officer in traffic cone costume - LA Times
"California drivers have seen the signs before: "Slow for the cone." But for Moreno Valley motorists, the giant orange cone traversing the crosswalk was supposed to mean "stop." The undercover officer wearing the traffic cone costume on Wednesday walked along a crosswalk at Eucalyptus Avenue and Running Deer Road as part of a pedestrian right-of-way sting, according to Riverside County Sheriff's Sgt. Bill Guimont. But even with the costume, some motorists who were cited told authorities "they never saw the traffic cone in the crosswalk," he said in a statement." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
