Delta baggage handler accused of smuggling guns - -
"Harvey used his security clearance to help provide guns to a passenger named Mark Quentin Henry after Henry cleared security. - Henry allegedly brought the firearms in his carry-on luggage on at least five flights from Atlanta to New York between May 1 and December 10. - During that time frame, Henry supplied 129 handguns and two assault rifles to co-conspirators in New York, the affidavit states. - One of those co-conspirators ended up selling the firearms to an undercover New York police officer. Henry was arrested in New York on December 10 after landing at JFK airport with 18 handguns in his bag -- seven of which were loaded, the affidavit says." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Rex Grossman Turns Down Offer from the Browns with Family in Town | Bleacher Report
"With injuries to Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer, the quarterback situation is looking bleak in Cleveland. In need of a healthy arm, the Browns actually reached out to free-agent signal-caller Rex Grossman. Surprisingly, the 12-year journeyman turned down the offer with his family in town." "As a veteran with more than 10 years in the NFL, Grossman would have been due — at the minimum — one-seventeenth of $910,000 for his week of work. That's $53,529.41 by our count for less than a full week's work, really six days from today through Sunday." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Good for him. If he's in no need of extra money it's always fine to choose family first. - Steve C Team Marina

From a 1999 article about Craig Ferguson: "Last July, [Craig Ferguson, Nigel Wick on The Drew Carey Show,] tied the knot with American love Sascha, his girlfriend of three years.

I never did get down there to be in the audience. When I didn't own a car, their banning of backpacks (my purse is a backpack) made it impossible for me to do. When I finally got a car I was in school and it just wasn't as easy to do. I regret it. - Spidra Webster
he might guest host on Late Late Show at some point. and he's as much as said he'll likely do a similar format show again, just not on CBS. - Big Joe Silence
Yeah, but if I'd done it I could've gone when there was still a small intimate studio audience. :) - Spidra Webster
I wonder if any of his future work will be with "World Wide Pants?" That's Letterman's production company who owned]/owns Late Late Show. - WarLord

Over Half of Dr. Oz’s Advice Is Unfounded: Study
"“One out of three recommendations from The Dr. Oz Show has believable evidence, and about half of the recommendations on The Doctors has believable evidence,” Mike Allan, another Alberta medical professor and co-author of the study, said in a statement. Of the health recommendations that appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, researchers found evidence to support 46 percent, meaning that 46 percent of the time the show gave solid advice. But 15 percent of the time, the advice directly contradicted best available evidence. A whopping 39 percent of the time, the researchers found no evidence to support the advice." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Parental units: All babies are different and there's no one magic solution but did you have any success with any kind of sleep training and if so at what age?
We're down to 1.5 hours of continuous sleep before waking up - he's 6 months. Wife has taken chemical warfare off the table. - Steve C Team Marina
Ferber method, around 5 months for my 2nd and a year for my first kid. Worked for me, generally, but I'm not dogmatic about it. - Stephen Mack
crying it out was becoming a disaster for all of us, including our (first) baby. my inlaws were recommending a baby bottle full of red wine. we went with co-sleeping instead. we all slept great then. both our kids decided to sleep without us by roughly age 18 months. - Big Joe Silence
Thanks for inputs Stephen and Joe - Steve C Team Marina
Everything was going fine for us until a couple weeks ago when teething started. (5 months) Those teeth have pushed through but the sleep pattern is a disaster now. Coupled with not wanting to take a bottle or any interest in food yet, this is destroying my wife. We have not yet taken chemical warfare off the table yet. So what I'm saying is, "I hear you, and I'm following this thread for ideas." - Brian Johns
If it makes you feel better the teething/6 month sleep regression doesn't last forever, or no kid would make it to 7 mo. We were a cosleeping family (because I could feed in my sleep), but many many of our friends were not. As our moms group leader said, "Do whatever gets everyone the most sleep." Good luck! - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
My mum says at 6mo the best shot at sleep training is keeping to a very consistent schedule. Bedtime at a specific time, wake up too. Naps can be harder for this. If he takes a long time to get down try putting him to bed earlier (this is more for your sanity than his comfort). - Soup in a TARDIS
Well we're consistent with bedtime and wakeup it's that whole time in between he doesn't understand so far Soup. :) - Steve C Team Marina
Indeed. - Brian Johns
Keep in mind, both me and Adrian worked at home, so a disruption in our sleep wasn't disastrous. We did CIO, but we also didn't put the kids to bed until about 10pm. They both slept through the night at 4/5 mos. teething wasn't an issue for us, but around 8 - 10 mos. neither of them wanted to sleep, just play. We put them in bed with me. - Anika
I'm exactly where Brian is at. We were golden until teething happened. :/ - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
THe sleep regressions seem to last a lot longer than they really least in our experience. We did the cereal in the bottle at bedtime thing and that seemed to help her sleep longer stretches. Teething hit and it was Hell, but Tylenol, not Motrin, did the trick. It seems to soothe her pain and she falls to sleep for the whole night. Possibly gets up for a 4am snack.

"Ice pancakes. These strange frozen saucers were found during a recent cold snap near the River Dee -- a salmon-filled waterway that passes by the British Queen's summer residence, Balmoral Castle, before heading eastwards to the coastal city of Aberdeen. River Dee Trust biologist Jamie Urquhart made the discovery and took the photos at Lummels Pool, Birse -- several miles downstream of Balmoral. The trust said it was initially unsure what caused the pancakes, but supects they're caused by a rare phenomenon in which foam freezes in a swirling eddy." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

'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

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

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 is a bubble between ~12 and the midpoint of high school (US version).

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

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
