BBC News - Giant poppy made by 1,400 GCHQ intelligence agency staff
Show all
"Staff, dressed in red rain ponchos, marked the launch of the Royal British Legion's Gloucestershire poppy appeal by forming the 38m (125ft) poppy. The 1,308 civilian staff were joined by black-uniformed Royal Navy personnel, who made up the centre of the poppy, and military personnel who created the 28m-long (92ft)stalk. A GCHQ spokesperson said: "Thanks to military planning and some loud hailers, it took just over an hour to get everyone into position." The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is one of the three UK intelligence and security agencies, alongside MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6)." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet

Some Dumbass In University Park Dressed His House as Ebola for Halloween | Dallas Observer
"This was, unfortunately, inevitable. James Faulk has decorated his University Park home in the most tasteless way imaginable. It's got everything. Caution tape, waste disposal barrels, trash bags filled with "biohazards." Faulk tells FOX 4 that police were called the first night he put up his display, so he added a "Happy Halloween" sign to his balcony. The items used in the display were purchased at a hospital auction for less than $150 he says. Faulk says he isn't finished with the display. He plans to board up his door and put a dummy in a hospital bed in the window soon. Faulk, who talked to FOX cameras in a "CDC Trainee" uniform and a face mask, told the TV station that people offended by the display need to "lighten up."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Shuddle Is an Uber for Kids Driven by Childcare Pros | Re/code - http://recode.net/2014...
Shuddle Is an Uber for Kids Driven by Childcare Pros | Re/code
"Shuddle, a new service for parents to arrange paid rides for their children, launches today. It will be available in San Francisco and nearby areas including the East Bay and the Peninsula. Shuddle is very on trend; it could be described as an “Uber for kids.” The San Francisco-based company behind the service has raised $2.6 million in funding from Accel Partners, Forerunner Ventures and Comcast Ventures. Shuddle is much like the ridesharing services that are now becoming familiar in many cities — UberX, Lyft and Sidecar — except the driver is often a professional nanny." - Me from Bookmarklet

I'm a little sad I'm not going to the Cal/Oregon football game tomorrow but I wasn't willing to shell out $105, which is the cheapest remaining ticket. Someday I will go to a football game at this new stadium we just built...
What time is the game? I expect traffic will be bad around the office tomorrow if it's in the evening. Sigh. - Ken Gidley
The game is at 7:00. My commute is down Lafayette which is pretty much isolated from Stadium traffic issues so I don't expect any problems getting home. Isolated because it doesn't connect to 237 or 101. :-) - Brian Johns

Cigarette maker Reynolds to snuff out workplace smoking - SFGate - http://www.sfgate.com/busines...
"Camel cigarette maker Reynolds American Inc. is snuffing out smoking in its offices and buildings. The nation’s second-biggest tobacco company informed employees Wednesday that beginning next year, the use of traditional cigarettes, cigars or pipes will no longer be permitted at desks or in offices, conference rooms, hallways and elevators. Lighting up already is prohibited on factory floors and in cafeterias and fitness centers. The no-smoking policy will go into effect once Reynolds builds indoor smoking areas for those still wanting to light up indoors, spokesman David Howard said. “We believe it’s the right thing to do and the right time to do it because updating our tobacco use policies will better accommodate both nonsmokers and smokers who work in and visit our facilities,” Howard said. “We’re just better aligning our tobacco use policies with the realities of what you’re seeing in society today.” While Reynolds will no longer allow smoking, it will allow the use of smokeless... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"The company also will allow the use of Eclipse, a cigarette made by Reynolds that uses a carbon tip that heats tobacco after being lit by a lighter. First released in the mid-1990s, Eclipse is in limited distribution and one of the top-selling brands in the cafeteria at the company’s Winston-Salem, N.C., headquarters. The percentage of Reynolds’ 5,200 employees that smoke is in line... more... - Anne Bouey
Legend has it, that there was a time that they actually required smoking at work (I've known a handful of people who worked at the offices in Richmond, VA many, many years ago). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Forthcoming: Grammatical theory: From transformational grammar to constraint-based approaches
"This book introduces formal grammar theories that play a role in current linguistics or contributed tools that are relevant for current linguistic theorizing (Phrase Structure Grammar, Transformational Grammar/Government & Binding, Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical Functional Grammar, Categorial Grammar, Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Construction Grammar, Tree Adjoining Grammar). The key assumptions are explained and it is shown how the respective theory treats arguments and adjuncts, the active/passive alternation, local reorderings, verb placement, and fronting of constituents over long distances. The analyses are explained with German as the object language." - Maitani

And it's on my kindle. I checked Wyldcat to verify that only 4 WY libraries have it, and it's true. BAD FORM, Wyoming librarians. - kaijsa

""He kicked a cop," a woman behind the camera can be heard laughing. "He kicked the cop." Realizing what he's done, the officer gives his buddy a little pat on the head, and then, for good measure, gets on top of the suspect and clocks him in the face." - Andrew C (✔)

No Album Has Gone Platinum In 2014
"Was A$AP Yams onto something? No seriously? After he went on his infamous rant concerning the state of music in 2014 and labeling this year as the worst in rap history, many people dubbed him insane. Yams touched on a sensitive topic, which in reality, has a plethora of artists in the game shaking in their boots. According to Billboard, there hasn’t been a single artist to go platinum thus far this year. Let that just marinate. That’s right. No albums have went platinum this year. While Rick Ross’ Mastermind and Young Jeezy’s Seen It All tallied in strong week one numbers, they haven’t even touched gold this year. In addition, albums like Wiz Khalifa’s Blacc Hollywood, Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic are also having difficulty tittering over 400,000." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
Maybe if they were making actual music and not just that noise I keep hearing the kids these days play, then they'd sell more albums. #howsthatforold? - Brian Johns

"In extreme cases, kids with normal lunches are apparently getting bullied by kids who have the "special" lunches. "Look at your boring lunch! Loser!" Suddenly, the bento lunch mama made no longer seems so delicious. Because of this consequence of mamas trying too hard to impress with their lunch-making efforts, some kindergartens and elementary schools have banned charabens so kids don't have to be ostracized, or even bullied, just for having regular bento lunches." - Anika from Bookmarklet
