Greece Passes Austerity Package, Is US Next?


Greece has passed the much maligned austerity package wich will allow it to receive loans from the International Monetary Fund(IMF) 
link to complete CNBC story here.. So now it comes to the United States, you may have noticed in the news lately stories on the "debt ceiling" and if you are a  not to up on the world of finance and bonds you might not know what it is all about(debt map below).It is very similar to the situation in Greece except we are not dealing with the IMF we are dealing with China and US citizens who hold  Treasury bonds in their retirement and everyday portfolios. US government bonds have always been considered the safest place to put your money. That could all change at the beginning of August.

If the US does not pass the raising of  the "Debt Ceiling" it could be possible that the US could default on it's bonds which would be the first time that has ever happened in history.This would wreak havoc globally and possibly crush the value of the dollar. That could be great for the stock market as it seems to run counter the value of the dollar.Not good for us regualar joe's prices could rise 20-30% over night. All these things are just possibilties, they are not definitely going to happen but they could. Do some google searches check for yourself, develop your own thoughts.

Possibly Major Issues at Nebraska Nuclear Power Plant (VIDEO)

Scouring my sources for stories this morning I kept coming across this story of the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant in Nebraska. It was mostly fringe websites who had this story and sites that were very anti US. As I looked more into it I started finding more stories from credible sources. The main reason I am posting about this is because I found it alarming that a no fly zone has been put in place for 2 miles around the plant and it has not really been reported. I don't know what exactly has happened but some say the pumps for the cooling pools have been knocked out. I do not know if that is true, but here is some more info so you can decide what you believe.

I am not sure of this guys credibilty but take a look at the Nebraska local news report at the beginning.

"Smug Jerks From Boston: They Have Every Right"


"Your Boston friends are the smuggest jerks in the history of smug jerks.
But they're kind of allowed to be.Here's why.
In the last six years, Boston's four sports teams each won a title.
Since 2002, the Patriots have won three Super Bowls. The Red Sox have won two World Series championships. And both the Celtics and Bruins have won their respective trophies.
This has never happened before.

Things White People Like

#4. World music. If it’s played loud enough at work or at a dinner party, people are almost guaranteed to say, “Who is this?” To which the white person can say, “You know, when I was in Bolivia, I really got into this flute music. I got this CD from a group of musicians on the streets of La Paz.”

So true.

Empire State Building Refuses to Light For Spiderman Broadway Debut


NY,NY;- The worlds most famous skyskraper is refusing the request of Spiderman.Owners of the Empire State Building have asked that once there building is included in the battle scene with green goblin they will turn the lights to spidey's red and blue colors.

I say, "Good for you empire state building!"
Spiderman:Turn Off The Dark" didn't give any thought to ESB when they made the scene. No nod to them, it could have been placed in the back ground, it is there in the real world, but not in the Broadway production. Granted the Chrysler building is very prominent and integral to the scene.

I personally think they should go with the green pictured above in a nod to the Green Goblin.So we will see next if the Empire State Building will cave and indeed "Turn off the Dark"

What is the iCloud?


So what is the iCloud? First of all, is it "the iCloud" or just "iCloud"? Who knows? From what I can surmise it is basically going a place to keep all your itunes song, books. Will the app store be there? I don't know.

I found this great article from PC World that can break down what they think "the iCloud" will be here it is:

Movie Review: X-men First Class

The movie begins in the midst of WWII and Nazi Germany. It was a little "heavy". Anything having to do with taking children from their parents and being sent to work-camps really gets to me as well. I think they did an excellent job of telling the back ground story of the X-Men, even for people who have never seen any of the other movies or read the comic books. It was very action packed. The special effects were decent and the character acting and development was good. Kevin Bacon plays a believable villain. (I think this was a good career move for him.)
Because I had not read the comic books, this movie answered a lot of questions I had regarding "how's", "when's", and "why's" of the X-Men. I enjoyed the movie from beginning to end and so did the kids.
I definitely think it was worth it to see this in the theater. I would definitely recommend it.

Should You Take The Little Ones?

We have 3 boys who are between the ages of 5-9 years old and all of them are big time into superhero action movies. I think if I had known the violence was as much I would have had the little guy sit this one out.The PG-13 rating for this movie was right on. So, if you have little guys like I do, perhaps the killing might be over the top for him or her.

Mass.Tornado:West Springfield Mom Sacrifices Self To Save Daughter

"There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends."

Kid Frank

Or Children for that matter, when I heard about this story it was so heartbreaking to hear but yet at the same time bittersweet and inspiring. You may have already heard the account but if you didn't here it is.

As Angelica Guerrero heard the tornado just outside her apartment, she grabbed her 15 year old daughter who was taking a nap and hurried her into the bathroom. Angelica then then pushed her daughter into the bath tub and lay on top her. Seconds later the whole house collapsed on top of them. Angelica was killed but her daughter was saved because her mothers body took the brunt of the collapse.

"There is no doubt she saved her daughters life,"
West Springfield Police Chief
Thomas Burke

Wow! What a mother! What more can you say?

Canadian Pizza Chain, Boston Pizza Changes Name For Stanley Cup Finals

A popular Canadian pizza chain has changed it's name for the Stanley Cup Finals. If you notice on the right side of Vancouver's Rogers Arena to the right of the goal an Ad for "Boston Pizza" with Boston crossed out and "Vancouver" written below it. The pizza shop changed their name immediately after the Boston Bruins clinched the east and would face the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup Finals. Canada has a bit of a Stanley Cup drought going as a Canadian team has not won a "Cup" since the 92-93 Montreal Canadiens.
