Baby Swinging Yoga, Russian Woman twirls baby around head (VIDEO)

My wife stumbled across this the other day and was very alarmed by it. Is this safe? It does not look so healthy for the babies joints. From my own experience, when my son was three or four I was washing his hands in the bathroom and i went to pull his sleeve up and I dislocated his elbow. How safe is "baby swinging yoga"? What if you lose your grip and throw the kid off the house? Your comments would be appreciated.

Great Quote from Allen Ginsberg on Tucson tragedy

"We saw a white, Catholic, Republican federal judge murdered on his way to greet a Democratic Congresswoman, who was Jewish. Her life was saved by a 20-year-old Mexican-American college student, and a Korean-American combat surgeon. Later it was eulogized and explained by our African-American president. In a tragic event, that's a remarkable statement about the country." --Allen Ginsberg, Historian

Nook- the award winning Barnes and Noble eReader with 3G and WIFI
Wow! That was kind of shocking, but not so much. Go Stillers. Where was Tom Brady for the first three quarters? No take aways for the defense, but they held their own. Thank God for Algie Crumpler or this game would have been over earlier. Did you know the Patriots have not won a playoff game since the AFC Championship in 2007.

Well Red Sox pitchers and catchers report in 29 days. Don't forget Sox just signed Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzales. Garnett comes back Monday night.I wil warn you don't hitch your cart to the Bruins, i will believe in them when they get past the second round.

Go Steelers!
