Well at least we are number one at something--Atlanta Named Most Toxic U.S. City,


Las Vegas has far from a clean reputation, but in Forbes' list of America's Most Toxic Cities, Las Vegas is named the least toxic of 40 major metropolitan areas.

Forbes ranked the cities based on the number of Superfund sites in the principal city, number of facilities that release toxic chemicals, amount of toxic chemicals released in the area and air quality ranking.

Following Las Vegas as the top 10 least toxic cities are Sacramento, Riverside, Austin, Seattle, San Diego, Virginia Beach, San Jose, New York and Phoenix.

Surprised to see a major city like New York in the top ten cleanest? Forbes explains:

Crowded urban areas are often thought of as the most polluted, but the latter isn't always caused by the former. While the Atlanta metro area takes top honors for toxicity, don't blame the city alone. The Atlanta metro includes the cities of Sandy Springs and Marietta, the sites of chemical plants, metal coaters and concrete factories. The cities have toxic-release levels equal at or higher than those Atlanta, in spite of populations that are 15% and 13% the size of Atlanta's, respectively.

The title of most toxic city goes to Atlanta, followed by Detroit, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Jacksonville, Baltimore and Portland.

In some cases it's not the main city itself that is to blame for poor air or dirty water. As Forbes explains, much of the pollution for some cities comes from factories and plants in surrounding areas.

"...while the Philadelphia metro area is our fourth most toxic area, the City of Brotherly Love doesn't hold the bulk of the blame for the pollution. Factories in smaller Wilmington, Del., in the same metro area, reported releasing 57% more pounds of toxins than Philadelphia in 2007. Wilmington houses a Pepsi bottler and General Motors assembly plant, as well as the headquarters of chemical company Dupont."
The most toxic cities:
1. Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta
2. Detroit-Warren-Livonia
3. Chicago-Naperville-Joliet
4. Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown
5. Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington
6. Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor
7. Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana
8. Jacksonville
9. Baltimore-Towson
10. Portland-Vancouver-Beaverton

The least toxic cities:
1. Las Vegas-Paradise
2. Sacramento--Arden-Arcade--Roseville
3. Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario
4. Austin-Round Rock
5. Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue
6. San Diego-Carlsbad-San Marcos
7. Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News
8. San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara
9. New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island
10. Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale

Mount Desert Island Ginger (its a beer)


"Honey this taste skunked" was my first response after taking a taste of this beer. Hell, for the beers' sake I wish my bottle was shunked-but it wasn't. 
Not much on appearance-it looks like an Amber or Lager. 
The carbonation is overwhelming- i had to let it air and warm up to "enjoy it." 
taste...pushing close to awful. The initial taste was smooth, but that fake ginger aftertaste is overwhelming, and leaves the pallet craving for anything else. "taste"

I give them an A for attempt but an E for effort.

Serving type: bottle

As of today sending a text while driving is illegal, a primary driving offense. That means in every area in the district it is illegal to text and drive. But in maryland you can read a text-in Va it is a secondary offense so you have to be breaking another law to get pulled over.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds dies

LONDON, England (CNN) -- The childhood friend of John Lennon's son who inspired the Beatles' psychedelic masterpiece "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" has died aged 46 from the chronic disease Lupus.
Julian Lennon showed his father a drawing he had done of Lucy Vodden. The rest is music history...

Julian Lennon showed his father a drawing he had done of Lucy Vodden. The rest is music history...

Lucy Vodden was a classmate of Julian Lennon, who came home from school one day carrying a drawing of his 4-year-old classmate. "That's Lucy in the sky with diamonds," he told his father.

Lennon seized on the image and embellished it in a song along with "newspaper taxis" and a "girl with kaleidoscope eyes."

The BBC later banned the track, which appeared on the 1967 album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," for its supposed drug reference with the words of the song spelling out LSD.

Lennon always claimed though that the title was suggested by Julian, not from any wish to spell out LSD, the chemical name for the drug, acid, in code.

Julian Lennon lost touch with Vodden when he left Heath House nursery school, near his parents' home in Surrey following their divorce in 1968. But they were reunited in recent years when he heard she was suffering from the immune system disease and he lent his support to her.

Vodden's death was announced on Monday by St. Thomas Lupus Trust in London, where she had been treated for more than five years.

"Julian and (his mother) Cynthia are shocked and saddened by the loss of Lucy and their thoughts are with her husband and family today and always," the trust said on its Web site.

Angie Davidson, Campaign Director of the St. Thomas' Lupus Trust said "everyone at the Louise Coote Lupus Unit was dreadfully shocked by the death of Lucy, she was a great supporter of ours and a real fighter, it's so sad that she has finally lost the battle she fought so bravely for so long."

Vodden, who was a housewife from Surbiton, southwest of London, cherished her link to the Beatles, but did not especially like the song she inspired.

"I don't relate to the song, to that type of song," she told The Associated Press in June, according to the Web site, PopEater.

"As a teenager, I made the mistake of telling a couple of friends at school that I was the Lucy in the song and they said, 'No, it's not you, my parents said it's about drugs.' And I didn't know what LSD was at the time, so I just kept it quiet, to myself."

Bill Maher's New Rule Health Care

Bill Maher

New Rule: You Can't Complain About

Health Care Reform If You're Not Willing

to Reform Your Own Health

New Rule: You can't complain about health care reform if you're not willing to reform your own health. Unlike most liberals, I'm glad all those teabaggers marched on Washington last week. Because judging from the photos, it's the first exercise they've gotten in years. Not counting, of course, all the Rascal scooters there, most of which aren't even for the disabled. They're just Americans who turned 60 and said, "Screw it, I'm done walking." These people are furious at the high cost of health care, so they blame illegals, who don't even get health care. News flash, Glenn Beck fans: the reason health care is so expensive is because you're all so unhealthy.

Yes, it was fun this week to watch the teabaggers complain how the media underestimated the size of their march, "How can you say there were only 60,000 of us? We filled the entire mall!" Yes, because you're fat. One whale fills the tank at Sea World, that doesn't make it a crowd.

President Obama has identified all the problems with the health care system, but there's one tiny issue he refuses to tackle, and that's our actual health.

And since Americans can only be prodded into doing something with money, we need to tax crappy foods that make us sick like we do with cigarettes, and alcohol -- and alcohol actually serves a useful function in society in that it enables unattractive people to get laid, which is more than you can say for Skittles.

I'm not saying tax all soda, but certainly any single serving of soda larger than a baby is not unreasonable. If you don't know whether you burp it or it burps you, that's too big. We need to make taking care of ourselves an issue of patriotism. If you were someone who condemned Bush for not asking Americans to sacrifice for the war on terror, the same must be said for Obama and health care.

President Arugula is not gonna tell Americans they're fat and lazy. No sin tax on food on Obama's watch. And at a time when it's important to set new standards for personal responsibility, he appointed a surgeon general, who is, I'm sorry, kind of fat. Certainly too heavy to be a surgeon general, it's a role model thing. It would be like appointing a Secretary of the Treasury who didn't pay his taxes. He did?

And get this: Surgeon General Benjamin had previously been a nutritional advisor to Burger King. The only advice a "health expert" should give Burger King is to stop selling food. The "nutritional advisor" job was described as, "promoting balanced diets and active lifestyle choices" -- and who better to do that than the folks who hand you meat and corn syrup through a car window? When you have a surgeon general who comes from Burger King, it's a message to lobbyists, and that message is, "Have it your way."

Obama calls Kanye a Jackss

20 bucks says the next Kanye single mentions Obama

Obama calls Kanye a jackass

(Reuters/Corbis/Gary Hershorn)

Barack Obama has "finally found an issue that could unite both Democrats and Republicans," said Katie Connolly in Newsweek. In an off-the-record portion of an interview with CNBC, the president was asked to comment on hip-hop star Kanye West's outburst at MTV's Video Music Awards. The response wasn't aired, but ABC reporter Terry Moran said on Twitter that Obama calls Kanye "a jackass" for barging on stage and interrupting an acceptance speech. (watch Kanye West interrupt country singer Taylor Swift at the VMAs)

I knew Obama "had his good points," said Allahpundit in Hot Air. "What I don't know is why he'd insist on keeping this off the record." The only reason the general public heard about the president's comment at all was that ABC's Terry Moran prematurely tweeted something that turned out to be from the off-the-record part of the interview.

"This is exactly the kind of human, non-Spock-like outburst Obama needs to do much more of to better connect with the vast majority of the American people," said Trey Ellis in The Huffington Post. But Kanye West is an easy target -- nobody is going to argue when Obama calls Kanye a jackass. What the president needs is to be just as candid about everybody from Joe Wilson to Wall Street cheaters -- "the first step is to call them a bunch of jackasses."

I went camping this week just like the good ole days. Last minute decisions, shoty packing job, low on cash.
I won't go into the trip but Sarah said something "the mayan calendar says the world is gonna end in 2012."
That got me thinking-what if it does, I shouldn't let any chance go by.
Fast Forward.

I get a call at 4:30. I don't know who it is- 'maybe...' I thought for a second. I let it ring. I answer.
I have no clue who it is.
"Lauuuurrrreeeenn what are you doing tonight?"
I say, "Who is this?"
"Lauuuurrrreeeenn what are you doing tonight?"
"Yo man I don't know who this -"
"Lauuuurrrreeeenn what are you doing tonight? Its Toooommommy! You wantta do security?"
Now I'm thinking 'WTF?'. "Tommy how did you get my number?"
"Don't worry about it you've worked security before right?"
'I've never worked security before, hell I weigh 140 with weights in my pocket'.
"Yea sure Tommy I've worked security..."
"Alright," he says, he believes me! "Be at D.C. Star by 9."
"Okay Tommy"
'Uhhh what am I thinking?!?!'

Didn't ask how much, didn't ask him when it ends, just going with the flow.

I really hope I don't get my ass kicked

I'm leaving my melons on the land. Watermelon Juice: The New Fuel?


Watermelon Juice: The New Fuel?

Michael Reilly, Discovery News

Aug. 26, 2009 -- A staple of backyard barbecues and summer time snacks, watermelon is also a promising new source of renewable energy.

According to a new study, leftover watermelons from farms' harvests could be converted into up to 9.4 million liters (2.5 million gallons) of clean, renewable ethanol fuel every year destined for your car, truck, or airplane's gas tank.

Agriculturally, watermelon is a peculiar fruit -- each year farmers across the country leave between 20 and 40 percent of their crop to rot on the ground. These are the ugly ducklings of the lot; though perfectly fine on the inside, the misshapen or blemished melons simply won't sell at the grocery store.

"If a crow lands on a melon, takes two pecks at the rind, and then flies away, it's no good," Wayne Fish of the United States Department of Agriculture in Lane, Oklahoma said. "I had farmers telling me, 'I'm leaving one-fifth of my melons on the land. Is there anything I can do with them?'"

Across the United States, he estimated that 360,000 tons of watermelons spoil in fields every year.

Some local growers wondered whether the waste melons could be turned into ethanol, the clean-burning fuel derived from plant sugars. In a series of new experiments published yesterday in the journalBiotechnology for Biofuels, Fish and a team of researchers showed that they can.

What's more, watermelon juice may turn out to be the perfect way to optimize industrial-scale production of ethanol from corn, molasses and sugar cane.

Watermelon juice is about 10 percent sugar by volume, about half the concentration that manufacturers consider right for producing ethanol. But it's chock full of amino acids that provide a crucial source of nitrogen for yeast to feed on during fermentation.

On its own, the team calculated they could make about 2.5 million gallons of ethanol each year from waste melons, a drop in the bucket of an industry that last year produced 9 billion gallons from corn and other feedstock in the United States alone.

But both corn and molasses require lots of water, and sometimes nitrogen supplements to prepare for fermentation. The team suggests that watermelon juice from reject melons could drastically cut down on water usage, supply needed nitrogen, and even add some sugar to the mix, cutting the amount of corn or molasses by up to 15 percent.

"This is not going to replace corn. In that sense it will remain a niche source of biofuel," said Jim Rausch, president of the College Station, Texas-based company Common Sense Agriculture, LLC, which is developing a prototype watermelon juice-to-ethanol processing plant.

"But unlike algae biodiesel or cellulosic ethanol, it's a right now thing. There's no new technology that needs to be developed to make it economical."

Food for Tooth


1. Healthy drink for teeth — Green tea
It contains polyphenols, antioxidant plant compounds that prevent plaque from adhering to your teeth and help reduce your chances of developing cavities and gum disease. Tea also has potential for reducing bad breath because it inhibits the growth of the bacteria that cause the odor. Many green teas also contain fluoride (from the leaves and the water it’s steeped in), which helps protect tooth enamel from decay and promotes healthy teeth.

2. Healthy drink and food for teeth — Milk and yogurt
Unsweetened yogurt and milk are good for your teeth. They have a low acidity. It means that the gradual wearing away of the teeth, also called dental erosion, is less. In addition they are low in sugar, that means less dental decay, too. Milk also is a good source of calcium, that keeps our teeth healthy. Calcium is the main component of teeth and bones, as we know.

3. Healthy food for teeth — Cheese
It is low carbohydrate and has a high calcium and phosphate content that provides important benefits for your healthy teeth. It helps balance your mouth’s pH, preserves and rebuilds tooth enamel, produces saliva, kills the bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. Cheese contains calcium, too.

4. Healthy food for teeth — Fruits
Different fruits like apples, strawberries, citrus fruits, specially kiwis, contain a lot of vitamin C. It is considered the cement that holds all of your cells together, so just as it’s vital for your skin, it’s important for the health of your gum tissue. If you don’t get enough vitamin C, researches show that the collagen network in your gums can break down, making your gums tender and more susceptible to the bacteria that cause periodontal disease.

5. Healthy food for teeth — Vegetables
Pumpkin, carrots, sweet potato, broccoli are full of vitamin A. This vitamin is absolutely necessary for the formation of tooth enamel. Apart form that, crunchy vegetables cleanse and stimulate your gums, making them healthy.

6. Healthy food for teeth — Onions
This vegetable contains powerful antibacterial sulfur compounds. Tests showed that onions kill various types of bacteria. Researches indicate that they are most powerful when eaten freshly peeled and raw. It may be not so tasty but good teeth are guaranteed.

7. Healthy food for teeth — Celery
This food protects your teeth while extra chewing. It produces plenty of saliva, which neutralizes different bacteria that causes cavities. Additionally, celery massages gums and cleans between teeth keeping them healthy and clean.

8. Healthy food for teeth — Sesame seeds
Good teeth can be a result of combining white bread, especially for small kids, and sesame seeds. It sloughs off plaque and helps build tooth enamel. Sesame seeds are also high in calcium, which helps preserve the bone around your teeth and gums. But firstly, it is very delicious.

9. Healthy food for teeth — Animal food
Beef, chicken, turkey, eggs – all of them contain phosphorous. Calcium, with the help of vitamin D and phosphorous, creates our bones system. These elements keep teeth stronger and healthier by protecting them from teeth decay.

10. Healthy drink for teeth — Water
Healthy water not only purer, but it cleanses the mouth, allowing the saliva to work wonders depositing essential minerals back into the weakened teeth. Drinking water keeps gums hydrated and helps wash away trapped food particles that decompose in the mouth and cause bad breath.

Not so much

I just watched the movie Lakeview Terrace - You know the movie with Sameul Jackson saying "MotherFucker" 100 times. It was awful, so awful that I had to dismiss myself from the room on several occasions. I'm mad I wasted my time with the bad acting, "could of [have] been good" plot and the chezzy one liners. Seriously disappointed with myself.
In short don't watch it. If you are up late night and it is ondemand (like right now on Starz) DON'T WATCH IT.

Pizzacato, Philadelphia, PA - Mas o Menos

There is a $91 dollar charge on my card and i am still trying to remember why.

She says she wants Italian for her last meal in the United States. I ride my bike up and down Market St Philadelphia. My first choice was closed, so was my second, so i narrowed in on Pizzacato at the corner of Market and 2nd. (248 Market street, just before the bridge on the right)

The patio is packed, which i read as a good sign,
We sit inside because of the humidity and we are one of two seated tables.

Our server enthusiastic and charismatic; Im sure he was the manager. He pushes out the nights' specials and some information (the highlight) about the restaurant: they make their pasta in house!

We start with the staples:
glass of champion-i couldn't tell you what kind because we never saw a drink menu despite a request-
Ceaser Salad-i've said it before i'll say it again, if you can bring something to a Ceaser salad you are alright in my book
and Mussels- in "chilis and herbs (red or white)"

Well the champion was good...dry? Chardon
The Mussels-blane...i suspect they steam the mussels early, not to order, keep them warm and pour sauce over top upon individual order. I was so disappointed I considered returning them. The cherry tomatoes at the bottom of the bowl captured the little essence of the sauce...unfortunately the mussels captured nothing.*
The Ceaser Salad...the lettuce was border line soggy, not crisp. The Ceaser dressing was good but not unique I give credit to the chef for producing their own croutons (they are made in house right?) but was disappointed that i was not offered crushed pepper for the salad.

For my entree i had the Exotic Mushroom T- I saw the dish on a patrons table while I scoped out the restaurant, Khrissee had the Linguine, with vegs, and extra, extra, extra Parmesan (the girl loves cheese).

My dish was good, the essence of the Mushrooms, the pasta...kinda of sticky, maybe over cooked.
K's Lingini was perfectly cooked, the tomoatoe sauce not as blan as the mussles.

i'm gonna guess i caught this place on a bad night. Or maybe the event sadden my heart and my palate. Unfortunately there are to many baller sdpots in philly and i will not try this spot again. But don't not try it just based on this review.

2 stars out of five.


and they don't have a website...weiiiird!!!!

Quick Dinner-Vegan Stir Fry

Remember those things i suggested you should have in your kitchen? I hope you stocked up because I'm starving and don't have much time to cook!

Take your Tofu, your stir fry frozen veggies,Kale, your minute rice, your olive oil, your soy, frying pan, small pot and wooden spoon out. (and whatever you have to season to taste like ginger, onion, red pepper etc)

  • Start by bowling your water, heating up the oil (at med to high temps) in your frying pan and throwing your tofu cubes on there with little soy sauce and seasonings.
  • Throw your rice in and cover. If you need extra protein crack an egg in the water. Make sure to break the yolk and stir.
  • Flip the tofu so it browns on all sides. Make sure the pot is steaming and throw shredders of Kale and your frozen veggies in there. add a little more soy, seasoning and oil on top and cover.
  • Check your rice. lower temp, stir keep covered.
  • Let the veggies steam, lower the temp some, you'll know they are down when the kale loses its form or the snow peas from the frozen veggies start to lose their peas. Stir the veggies around while they are steaming so everything gets some brown and flavor. It is okay if the tofu starts to crumble.
  • Make sure everything is cook properly and throw everything into a bowl. Rice too. Season if necessary, don't add salt, the sodium intake from the soy should do the trick.
I don't recommend trying to reheat this so only cook what you think you (and possibly your roomates) can eat. enjoy with a nice summer beer (stella, st. pauli's or sam light) or a decent white wine (a chardonnay or Pinot Grigo)

Coffee Anyone-South African Band Freshly Ground

 A few years ago at the end of the World Cup ceremony a band that goes by FreshlyGround  played the final set. The South African band preformed a special gig, marking South Africa's acceptance of the 2010 world cup.
...and then I never heard the band again-until two days ago when NPR flashed a clip of their music.

From Wiki:
Freshlyground is a South African Afro-fusion band that was formed in Cape Town in 2002. The band members are from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Stylistically, Freshlyground incorporates elements of traditional South African music (such as kwela and African folk), blues and jazz, as well as features of indie rock. The lead singer is Zolani Mahola whose distinctive voice contributes much to the band's unique sound.

Cooper v Obama

Tonight  at 10 pm CNN AC360 Anchor Anderson Cooper airs his interview with President Obama. The interview was filmed in Ghana during the presidents' first visit to the continent of Africa.  From the clips I've seen on Wolf Blitzer and it looks like Anderson shows no mercy on Obama, discussing U.S. Troops in Afganistan, Iran and Iraq, the economy, and (because, why not?) the "Don't Ask Don't Tell Policy."
Anderson is the best CNN reporter...Top Five Domestic.

 From CNN
Anderson Cooper | BIO
AC360° Anchor

Interviewing the President is always a difficult prospect. There are so many questions you want to ask, but you only have a limited amount of time.
We had been told we might get about 15 to 20 minutes sitting down with the President and then perhaps 10 minutes walking around Cape Coast Castle – a whitewashed fort through which enslaved Africans were sent to the New World.
We arrived in Ghana last week, one day before the President arrived with his family. We spent the day shooting a story about African Americans who visit Ghana to retrace their roots, and we also spent an hour or so walking through the Castle with members of the President’s advance team.
It is a remarkable thing to see how much effort and organization goes into the President’s movements. The Castle and the nearby hotel were full of secret service, embassy personnel, White House advance personnel, military backup and I’m sure more from other agencies as well.
Everything is timed to the minute: When the President will arrive, where he will go, etc. I read something on Drudgereport that said the crowds were not enthusiastic for the President’s trip. I’m not sure where that impression came from.

Everywhere I went people were quizzing me about where to go to see Obama. I didn’t tell anyone about his visit to the Castle, because I didn’t know if that information had been released yet. On Ghanaian radio I heard all sorts of theories about what the President would be doing in the country, and where he might go.

By the time he arrived at the Castle a huge crowd had gathered and was listening to music. When the President emerged from his limo, and waved to the crowd, everyone was screaming and waving back.
I was a little bit inside the Castle with my cameraman Neil Hallsworth. After waving, the President came back around the car, and did a little dance for the amusement of his kids and Mrs. Obama. It was a very lighthearted, private moment that few people saw.
We’ll show it to you on 360°, as well as the interview tonight and tomorrow. We talked about the economy, Iran, Afghanistan, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, as well as U.S. policy with regard to Africa.
We also talked a lot about his impressions walking through the dungeons of Cape Coast Castle, where so many enslaved Africans died, and so many more survived only to be loaded onto slave ships. He was there with his kids, and we talked about the impact of the visit on them, and how the history of the slave trade still resonates today in America.
We are also putting together an hour special: ‘President Obama’s African Journey, that will air later this week. I hope you tune in.
