GREETINGS from “Back Stage” trackside at the “World’s Fastest Spring Break Party”-the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. For the record, I hope this is not the ONLY time I am around “St. Peter.”

This has been an amazing week, not only am I lucky enough to have a job that I love and takes me all over this great country, I also am enjoying 85’s and BRIGHT SUNSHINE! This trip has defiantly gotten me out of my winter funk. While I have tried to find the good in all situations and make life good…it is MUCH EASIER WITH SOME SUNSHINE!

 

I am have been spending my time Southern Florida working and even made time to visit with Florida Moms who I have not seen since December. It was not only Good to see some sunshine, IT WAS GREAT TO SEE HER!

The areas I am in Florida are not on The East Coast, however these lyrics I have found fit me right now. They are fitting if in O-H-I-O, Florida, or even ‘The Coast of Carolina’ itself!


Little roadside restaurant we artfully complain

Groovy tells the waitress that his chicken died in vain

Most every day goes by according to design

I live this dream and still it seems I have you on my mind

From the bottom of my heart

Off the coast of Carolina

AFter one or two false starts

I believe we found our stride

And the walls that won’t come down

We can decorate or climb

Or find some way to get around

Cause I’m still on your side

From the bottom of my heart.

I can’t see the future

But I know it’s coming fast

It’s not that hard to wind up knee-deep in the past

There come alot of Mondays

Since that phone booth that first night

Tears and miles and years and smiles

I wanna get it right.

These days I get up about the time I used to go to bed

Living large was once the deal

Now I watch the stars instead

They’re timeless and predictable

Unlike most things that I do

I tell the wind and my old friend

I’m headed home to you.

 

The above (and few hours on the beach) got me thinking about a few things. ONE I SHOULD HAVE PUT ON MORE SUNSCREEN WHEN I GOT THE JET SKI, I am a lil red and sore. But two how lucky and blessed I am for all these opportunities I have gotten in the past few years (or hell…even in my life period). I think I even posted on facebook “sitting here today and thinking about where I am, where I have been, and everything in between.”

That is really what it is all about. My life is not perfect and while there are MANY bad things that I have experienced (yes most were brought on through my own faults) they ALL LED ME TO WHERE I AM TODAY AND WHERE I AM GOING ON DOWN THE ROAD.

 

I do wonder where I would be if I would have adopted or taken on my recent outlooks on life, spirituality, self, and all the other non BS things in life.

 

Yes I probably have missed out on a few things due to my own insecurities bad decisions or walls. BUT I am getting some of those opportunities now-and I think this is a blessing because I actually appreciate the chances I am getting more than I did when I was younger (and KNEW I deserved it).

 

These thoughts are usually running around in my head and kinda cause me some feelings of guilt. I wonder how many opportunities I have pis*ed away, or relationships I have given up just due to me and my own sh*t. These thoughts also seem to creep up more when added with the water and sand “baking” in the sun. So this week as I was laying there relaxing/listening to some Zac, Kenny, Jimmy, Bob, (Brian, Dennis, Carl, & Mike) The Beach Boys I came up with a theory…

 

And the walls that won’t come down, We can decorate”

 

Isn’t this what we all do? We stay within the comfort of our own walls and decorate these walls to help us feel a comfort inside of them? These walls we build in the forms of relationships, spirituality, self serving whatever, and just walls to keep from exploring new opportunities or relationships. While these walls can protect they can also keep from MANY new experiences. MAYBE it is ok to have a wall and decorate with some paint…but MAYBE we at the can break a hole in said walls and make a door to paint. AT THE VERY LEAST break a hole for a window to see what others see-we can still decorate the windows with curtains!

 

While I do have my own walls that I have built for “protection” or other various reasons, there is one area of this world I do feel at home.

 

I truly feel I was born in the wrong area of this GREAT Country or even world. I LOVE THE WATER. I think I may NEED the sun. Yes being a Buckeye is a great sense of pride for me, but I feel I could be just as content living/working on the water.

 

As I looked out across the gulf (and starting to realize I WAS A SLIGHT GLOW OF RED), I thought about all the wonder of “Mother Mother Ocean.”

 

The water brings us life (food), and continues to keep us breathing (we need water to live). And while there is a relaxation that comes from the water, the ocean can also be a tortuous beast that can take you under in even less time than looking out to enjoy her beauty.

 

Kinda like life itself? Life can be great but we must appreciate it for its beauty and also recognize that we must be ready for it to take us under-it always will, or at least try to stay in the boat when the waves get choppy.

 

Even if we get knocked out of the boat on the stormy seas or in life…as long as we are treading water in some way, we are still alive and can enjoy that sunset and sunrise that WILL COME WITH EACH NEW DAY!

Hopefully MY BUCKEYES will see another sunrise in the NCAA tourney! Have a great weekend.

BIRTHDAY(S):

Happy 80th Birthday, William Shatner!
Today another geek legend celebrates a birthday. He’s best known for his series of science fiction novels TekWar… wait, what? Oh, best known for portraying Captain James T. Kirk, William Shatner has cemented himself into geek science fiction lore forever. Today he begins his ninth decade on this planet — yes, Captain Kirk is now 80 years old.

William Shatner has starred in numerous television & movie productions besides Star Trek, including winning Emmy awards and a Golden Globe for his work on Boston Legal and The Practice. Really though, us geeks just care about the Star Trek stuff. Because if Shatner never put on that gold shirt and curled a fist at an angry alien in space, we probably wouldn’t care that the Priceline guy has a birthday.

James T. Kirk was the greatest iteration of a fictional space captain the world had ever seen, and is  still a character that is hard to beat today. Shatner brought a flair to the job, a brash and emotional style, that has yet to be duplicated and probably never will be. Kirk was thoughtful and sympathetic but also decisive and combative. He was a lover to green alien chicks. He was always thinking, even if he appeared to be always fighting. To us, this was William Shatner. There was no difference between the two. We imagined this is how he was. Later we’d see that while similar, Shatner is a man full of life and humor, never afraid to show it to the world.

While we are all endeared to Shatner as Kirk, over time, Shatner has become a character himself rather than a brash action star. Perhaps this is due to aging, though if you think back, the Shatner we see today is pretty much the Shatner we saw in Star Trek: Generations. Laid back, full of light humor but still ready to play the hero if called upon. Like when he delivers the best prices on hotels via Priceline. Heroic with a punchline. The perfect pitchman for saving the day, even if it’s something as mundane as booking a vacation.

Another thing about Shatner that endears us all is his voice. Specifically, his delivery and speech patterns. The less than subtle pauses, the dramatic shift in general speak — the man probably makes taking out the trash exciting. I encourage you to check out his spoken word albums, the first from 1968 called The Transformed Man and Has Been in 2004. He was also a guest on Ben Folds’s album Fear of Pop. All of this spoken word is backed by mainly trippy orchestral music which makes for an interesting listening experience. It’s a great way to explore the life of a man that wasn’t just a starship captain as we all might assume.

The point is, where Shatner was once only James T. Kirk to us, he’s become a pure pop culture icon in every sense of the definition. He’s been a stage actor, a multi-faceted television actor, a movie star and even a novelist with the TekWar series of books. This is aside from the spoken word stuff mentioned above. Shatner is a true Renaissance man and this whole aging thing, and I’m sure he would agree, is just another minor inconvenience to doing what he loves — which is entertaining the masses and seemingly, just being himself. So happy 80th birthday to William Shatner!

 

PASSING:

Elizabeth Taylor

Every breath you take today should be with someone else in mind.  I love you.-Liz Taylor

The last movie star died Wednesday. By the time Elizabeth Taylor left this mortal coil at 79, she had cheated death with a long line of infirmities that had repeatedly put her in the hospital — and on front pages across the world — and in 1961 left her with a tracheotomy scar on a neck more accustomed to diamonds. The tracheotomy was the result of a bout with pneumonia that left her gasping for air and it returned her to the big, bountiful, hungry life that was one of her greatest roles. It was a minor incision (later, she had surgery to remove the scar), but it’s easy to think of it as some kind of war wound for a life lived so magnificently.

Unlike Marilyn, Liz survived. And it was that survival as much as the movies and fights with the studios, the melodramas and men (so many melodramas, so many men!) that helped separate Ms. Taylor from many other old-Hollywood stars. She rocketed into the stratosphere in the 1950s, the era of the bombshell and the Bomb, when most of the top female box-office draws were blond, pneumatic and classifiable by type: good-time gals (Betty Grable), professional virgins (Doris Day), ice queens (Grace Kelly). Marilyn Monroe was the sacrificial sex goddess with the invitational mouth. Born six years before Ms. Taylor, she entered the movies a poor little girl ready to give it her all, and did.

 

Ms. Taylor, by contrast, was sui generis, a child star turned ingénue and jet-setting supernova, famous for her loves (Eddie & Liz, Liz & Dick) and finally for just being Liz. “I don’t remember ever not being famous,” she said. For her, fame was part of the job, neither a blessing (though the jewels were nice) nor a curse. Perhaps that’s why she never looked defeated, unlike those who wilt under the spotlight. In film after film she appears extraordinarily at ease: to the camera born. She’s as natural in “National Velvet,” the 1944 hit that made her a star at 12, as she is two decades later roaring through “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” proving once again that beauty and talent are not mutually exclusive, even in Hollywood.

 

In many respects she was a classic product of the old studio system. Pushed by a quintessential stage mother, she was signed to a contract in 1943 by MGM, which was banking on child talent, much of which was used up by adolescence, either disappearing for good or absorbed into the ranks of character actors. Unlike so many fledgling stars then and now, Ms. Taylor bloomed as a teenager and seemed remarkably relaxed in that newly plush body that soon became a big-screen fetish. She made it all seem so effortless, as did the studio machinery grinding away in the background. “She’s the kind of a girl,” wrote a reporter for The New York Times in a charmingly naïve 1949 profile, “to whom nice things just happen.”

 

Yet Hollywood and nice don’t often keep company, as one after another crash-and-burn studio tell-all attests and the perils faced by the young, beautiful and exploitable are legion. “Remind me to be around when she grows up,” Orson Welles joked after watching the 10-year-old Ms. Taylor shoot a scene in “Jane Eyre.” It’s a half-funny, queasy comment and however made in jest (or so you hope), it’s also a reminder of the predators that were always lurking and could have swallowed Ms. Taylor whole. That seems particularly the case given how, as she developed (at 16, she was “obviously mature,” as the reporter from The Times put it), she often seemed far too knowing, too womanly for the juvenile and young-lady parts she played.

 

It was George Stevens, who directed “A Place in the Sun,” who gave the young actress her first Elizabeth Taylor role, the one in which everything — her looks, presence and power — came together. Based on Theodore Dreiser’s novel “An American Tragedy,” it starred Ms. Taylor as an heiress whose allure is so potent it drives a young striver (Ms. Taylor’s close friend, Montgomery Clift) to murder his pregnant working-class lover (Shelley Winters). Everything wondrous and mysterious about cinema itself is captured in a dazzling, sensuously lengthy kiss between Ms. Taylor and Clift that Stevens shot in tight, almost claustrophobic close-up, filling the frame with beauty made immortal by film. It’s an intoxicating vision of bliss if one that — and this is critical to the film’s force — has been paid for by the murder of another woman.

 

Here, the movies seemed to say, was a woman worth killing for. It’s hard to think of many actresses, even those die-hard professionals raised inside the old studio bubbles, who could have weathered such an impossible burden. Ms. Taylor managed the role of sex object effortlessly as if it too were just part of the job. In contrast to so many other actresses, she seemed as desiring as desirous, with the gift of a thrillingly unladylike appetite. She was a great lover of food, of course, as her cruelly documented weight gains make evident. Yet the appetite that appeared to drive, at times even define her, exceeded mere food to include everything, and her consumption of men, booze, jewels and celebrity itself was an astonishment.

 

Living large proved a brilliant survival strategy as well as something of a rebuke to the limits of the studio system, both its formulas and false morality, which was all but gone by the time she appeared in “Virginia Woolf” in 1966. Her weight went up and down and the accolades kept coming. She cheated on one husband and then another at a time when adultery was still shocking, and her career kept going. She was a lovely actress and a better star. She embodied the excesses of Hollywood and she transcended them. In the end, the genius of her career was that she gave the world everything it wanted from a glamorous star, the excitement and drama, the diamonds and gossip, and she did it by refusing to become fame’s martyr.

Dunkin’ Donuts evicted from Broad-and-High storefront

Dunkin’ Donuts was evicted from its prime Downtown location at Broad and High today.

 

This comes after its operator, USA Restaurant Realty, filed for bankruptcy protection last month, citing a struggling economy and lack of business in the Downtown location as the reasons, an attorney representing the company said.

 

Officials with the Franklin County Sheriffs’ office were at the restaurant today as contents of the store, including furniture and equipment, were packed up and taken out.

 

Dunkin’ Donuts was evicted from the 2 E. Broad St. location for not paying its rent, said Sarah Heinrichs, a spokeswoman for Columbus-based developer Casto, its landlord.

 

“They had a franchisee issue and as a result, we were forced to do an eviction,” she said. “They weren’t paying their rent.”

 

According to a lawsuit filed by Casto against USA Restaurant Realty, the company owes $13,280 in unpaid rent and $526,000 for rent for the space through the end of its lease.

 

Heinrichs said Casto is in negotiations with another restaurant operator to take over the Downtown location. She said Casto will announce the replacement next week.

POLITICS:

So is this saying they CAN beat someone, or they beat “no one,” since the candidates are yet to be named?

 

Ohio poll: Obama, Brown favored to beat unnamed Republican opponents

Although nearly three-quarters of Ohioans like President Barack Obama personally, they’re evenly split on whether he deserves to win a second term next year, according to results of a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

 

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, meanwhile, is in better shape for re-election in 2012, with 43 percent of the 1,384 registered voters who participated in the poll saying they approve of his job performance, compared to 27 percent disapproving. Brown, a Democrat, is preferred over an unnamed GOP challenger, 45-29, Ohio voters say he deserves a second six-year term, by a 45-30 margin.

 

The poll showed that 47 percent of Ohioans approve of the way Obama is handling his job, while 48 percent disapprove. The result shows slippage from Quinnipiac’s Jan. 20 Ohio survey when 49 percent approved and 46 percent disapproved.

 

Obama is favored to beat an unnamed Republican opponent in this battleground state, 41-34.

 

“There is little change in President Barack Obama’s approval rating in Ohio, which historically has been among the most important swing states,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

 

“The small lead over an unnamed Republican and the split verdict on whether he deserves another term indicate that, as has been the case in most presidential elections over recent decades, Ohio will be closely contested.

 

“It is also clear that despite misgivings about his policies, President Obama remains personally popular with Ohoians.”

 

The poll revealed that 73 percent of the respondents said they personally like Obama, but only 44 percent like his policies.

 

By comparison, when voters are given the same choices about Republican Gov. John Kasich, only 43 percent like him personally, 30 percentage points less than say that about Obama, while 33 percent like his policies.

 

A Quinnipiac poll released yesterday showed that only 30 percent of Ohioans approve of Kasich’s job performance about three months into his first term.

 

In a breakdown, independents disapprove of Obama’s job performance, 50-42, while women approve, 51-43 and men disapprove, 53-44. Independents, key in Ohio elections, oppose a second term for Obama, 49-40.

 

Brown’s job performance is approved by 42 percent of independents and disapproved by 27 percent.

 

“Sen. Brown is in decent shape heading into 2012,” Quinnipiac’s Brown said. “While he doesn’t have large numbers of voters massed against him, his re-elect number, 45 percent, is short of the 50 percent threshold that generally signals an incumbent’s likely re-election.”

 

Just over three months into his first six-year term, Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman as a 30 percent approval rating and 25 percent disapproval, with 45 percent undecided.

 

The telephone survey was conducted from March 15-21, and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 2.6 percentage points.


MILITARY:

Air Force Disciplines Pilots For Low Iowa-Ohio State Flyover

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The Air Force said six pilots who participated in a spectacular flyover before an Iowa football game have been disciplined for flying too low and too fast. The lead pilot is giving up his right to fly military aircraft.

 

The Air Force said the four Talon T-38 Trainer jets flew just 16 feet above the stadium’s press box when they wowed 70,000 fans inside Kinnick Stadium before Iowa hosted Ohio State on Nov. 20.

 

The jets also approached speeds of 400 knots during both the flyover and practice runs the day before. The limit is 300 knots.

 

Col. Russell Mack is commander of the 71st Flying Training Wing.

 

He said while he understands fans attending the game enjoyed the flyover, the rules are meant to ensure safety.


ENTERTAINMENT:

‘Stand By Me’ Cast Reunites 25 Years Later

On Thursday, Jerry O’Connell, Corey Feldman and Wil Wheaton — the three remaining principal stars of “Stand by Me” — reunited at the Falcon Theater in Toluca Lake, California.

The occasion: The 25th anniversary (with accompanying DVD/Blu-ray release) of the coming-of-age ’50s-era 1986 classic. (Director Rob Reiner and narrator Richard Dreyfuss were also on hand for the look back.)

O’Connell, now 37, Feldman, now 39, and Wheaton, now 37, played pals barely in their teens on the hunt for a dead body, based on a story written by Stephen King.

Sorely missed from the reunion: Their famous co-star River Phoenix, who made a legendary impression in the moving flick, and died of a drug overdose in 1993 at the age of 23.

As for Phoenix’s co-stars? O’Connell (who was a pudgy pre-teen in the flick) is now married with twins to Rebecca Romjin, and stars in the TV series “The Defenders.”

Wheaton went on to become a regular on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and other sci-fi TV shows and films, and has a popular blog, Wil Wheaton Dot Net. He’s also married with two stepsons.

Feldman has had his own struggles with drugs and alcohol, and in 2010 mourned the loss of his pal and fellow child star Corey Haim. He is now a lead singer for the band The Truth Movement.

 

MUSIC:

Singer Chris Brown freaks out after ‘GMA’ interview, smashes window

 

“I’m passed that in my life. … I’ve been focusing on this album,” a visibly annoyed Brown said when Roberts brought up the Rihanna incident the first time.

 

Rihanna’s relationship with Brown ended after the R&B star beat her in February 2009.

 

Brown left Rihanna’s face bloodied and bruised after he hit her during an argument after a pre-Grammy Awards party on Feb. 8, 2009, in Los Angeles.

 

Brown later pleaded guilty to felony assault and sentenced to 1,400 hours of community service. He remains on probation through 2014.

 

“This album is what I want to talk about — not what happened two years ago,” Brown said when Roberts once again tried to bring up the domestic violence incident.

 

A source said Brown had been told beforehand that he would be asked about Rihanna and that the he had no problem with it.

 

After the 8:45 a.m. interview and a performance, the hot-headed Brown stomped off the set and ripped off his shirt in anger, a source said.

 

“He was ballistic,” said the source.

 

Brown walked into the dressing room and demanded the door be closed.

 

“He was really mad,” said the source. “”He was screaming and very upset.”

 

While inside the second-floor room, the source said Brown thrashed the room, smashing a window with a chair.

 

Part of the window shattered and pieces of glass fell onto 43rd Street and Broadway.

 

Scared staffers alerted ABC security when they heard the fracas inside the room.

 

Police were never called and ABC does not plan to file charges, a source said.

 

After the show, Roberts tweeted: “Sure has been an interesting AM @GMA. Still sorting thru everything myself. Just my 2nd day on twitter, wonder what tomorrow will bring?’

 

In a statement, ABC News said, “As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that’s what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown.”

 

Brown then stormed out of the studio and confronted segment producer Brandon Bodow by giving him a hard stare.

 

Brown did not say a word to Bodow as he walked out of the building, sources said.

 

In yet another tweet, Brown wrote: “Thank you to everyone who supports my music!!! Key Word (music) !!! Love y’all.”

 

After the incident, Brown returned to his room at the Trump Soho hotel. A few hours later, Brown left the hotel through a back entrance and walked into an art gallery on Spring Street.

 

Brown said nothing to a Post reporter as he walked into the gallery and smiled to several onlookers who had recognized him.

 

Brown later canceled a scheduled interview on MTV scheduled for this afternoon.

 

Last month, a California judge downgraded a restraining order that had barred Brown from contacting Rihanna, but warned him that he is not allowed to harass the 23-year-old singer.

At that hearing, the judge even praised Brown, who in December completed a court ordered 52-week domestic violence program, for staying out of trouble.

 

What was with “Naked” babies on album covers in the 90’s?

Besides perhaps the Nevermind baby, the child sporting a giant Afro pictured on Notorious B.I.G.’s classic debut Ready to Die is the most iconic infant in album-cover history. As the music world commemorated the 14th anniversary of Biggie’s death on March 9th, many fans began inquiring about the Ready to Die kid. Diddy simply told Rap Radar, “That was a baby we just found… We did a little casting for somebody that looked like Big,” and the Bad Boy offices had long lost any concrete form of documentation.

But now, the New York Daily News has uncovered the 18-year-old who claims to be the mini-B.I.G.: Bronx native Keithroy Yearwood.

“I just want people to know that’s me. The truth is finally coming out,” Yearwood told the Daily News, who corroborated his claim with Yearwood’s baby photos. The story of how the teen landed on the cover also seems to match Bad Boy’s assertion that the baby came from a modeling agency: Yearwood’s mother Delcenia Burns says her son was recruited by the now-defunct modeling agency Chicky’s Kids, and that she has the paperwork to prove it.

That Yearwood was a paid model would come as a surprise to two people involved in the shoot: Designer Cey Adams and the cover’s photographer Butch Belair, both thought that the Ready to Die baby was the child of someone who worked at Bad Boy.

“When I first found out about it, it wasn’t a big deal to me. Now, of course, it’s a big deal to me,” Yearwood, who plans to study sports management in college, said of his claim to fame. “It’s an honor to be on this album.”

Yearwood says he only received $150 for being on the cover of Ready to Die, but his place in music history is priceless

 


BOOKS:

“Where is Joe Merchant”-Jimmy Buffett

The relaxed and reigning king of beach music, who most recently told Tales From Margaritaville (1989), tries his hand at a relaxed and rambling novel. It’s about seaplanes, a pretty girl, a vanished rock star, the curse of jet skis, a magic scepter, disrupters of paradise, and conch burgers. Joe Merchant, of the title, is the missing, presumed dead rock star whose sister Trevor Kane has returned to Florida to enlist her old lover Frank Bama to check out rumors of Merchant’s survival. Trevor left Frank, a Vietnam vet who would rather fly than get serious, years ago because he seemed to love his ancient seaplane more than he loved her. Frank’s doughty seaplane, however, is just what she needs to go in search of someone named Desdemona, who might be somewhere in the Caribbean. There is a Desdemona, and she does have a psychic link to the missing musician. She’s been getting extrasensory messages for months. Also on the trail of Mr. Merchant and Desdemona are trash journalist Rudy Breno and one- armed, archvillainous soldier-of-fortune Colonel Cairo. Colonel Cairo is obsessed with the restoration of his missing arm, a task requiring a missing crystal. Desdemona might know something about that. The searches are Florida-intense, which is to say that there is plenty of time for subplots about Frank’s chum who has been blowing up the jet skis that make paradise too noisy, and about a coldblooded killer with eyeballs tattooed on his eyelids who’s not, after all, a subplot. So laid-back and rambling it’s perilously close to sloppy, but Buffett’s considerable charms as a performer and goof-off artist keep things afloat. The uninitiated may be baffled; his fans will be enchanted.

…well you da “dog”

‘He’s alive!’: Spaniel somehow survives amid the wreckage of the tsunami

Amid the terror of imminent possible nuclear disaster and the human death toll of the Japanese earthquake a loyal dog refuses to leave its best friend.

Japanese news reports say the two animals were caught in the tsunami and magnitude nine quake on Friday.

While one dog somehow survived unscathed, the other appeared to have been killed when the monster wave swept through the Arahama area in Sendai – only for rescuers to find he had miraculously survived the disaster.

Loyal to the end: A dog remains at the side of his wounded friend in the wake of the tsunami – miraculously, both survived

As this heartbreaking footage shows the brown and white coloured spaniel-cross refused to leave the side of his seemingly dead canine companion – even stopping rescuers from getting close.

But then as the crew filmed the scene, believing only one dog has survived, they suddenly noticed the head of the other dog move and rejoiced, shouting: ‘Yes! Yes! He is alive.’

Warding off danger: The brown spaniel-cross tried to keep a news crew away as he guarded his injured friend

 

Faithful: Despite surviving a natural disaster, the dog showed no fear as he tried to protect his friend

An emotional English transcript has now been released of the moment the rescue began.

A reporter speaks to camera: ‘We are in Arahama area. Looks like there is a dog. There is a dog. He looks tired and dirty. He must have been caught in the tsunami. He looks very dirty.

‘He has a collar. He must be someone’s pet. He has a silver collar. He is shaking. He seems very afraid.

‘Oh, there is another dog. I wonder if he is dead.’

Another person off camera asks: ‘Where?’

The reporter continues: ‘Right there. There is another dog right next to the one sitting down. He is not moving. I wonder. I wonder if he is alright.’

 

Protector: After barking at reporters, the dog returns to his fellow canine’s side

The voice off-camera says: ‘The dog is protecting him,’ with the reporter replying: ‘Yes. He is protecting the dog. That is why he did not want us to approach them. He was trying to keep us at bay.

‘I can’t watch this. This is very difficult to watch. Oh. Look. He is moving. He is alive. I am so happy to see that he is alive.

‘Yes! Yes! He is alive.

‘He looks to be weakened. We need them to be rescued soon. We really want them rescued soon.

‘Oh good. He’s getting up. It is amazing how they survived the tremendous earthquake and tsunami. It’s just amazing that they survived through this all.’

Miracle: The weaker dog begins to stir and his friend puts a comforting paw around him

Both dogs have now been rescued, according to a Facebook post by Kenn Sakurai, president of a dog and cat food firm which aids animal rescue operations.

‘The one which came close to the camera is in the better condition,’ he explained.

‘The othere white, gray and black was weak. So it is in the vet clinic in Ibaraki Prefectre.The other dog is in the shelter of the same area.

‘But please know that those two are just the tip of the iceberg. There are more and we need help.’

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?:

Man draws gun when woman refuses date

700 block of McPherson St., Mansfield ohio — Police tried to find a man in his early 20s around 1:15 a.m. Saturday, after a 29-year-old woman said he called and asked her to meet him at the corner of McPherson Street and Allison Avenue, got upset when she wouldn’t go out with him, and allegedly pulled a handgun from his waistband, firing three shots toward her. Police reports said the woman, who fled, last saw the man running north on Allison Avenue, toward Burns St. Police could not find the suspect.

IRONY:

Creation Museum founder rebuked as ‘ungodly’

A homeschool convention in Cincinnati has dropped the founder of the Creation Museum in Kentucky as a speaker for “ungodly and mean-spirited” comments about another invited speaker.

 

The organizers of Great Homeschool Conventions also banned Answers In Genesis founder Ken Ham from future conventions. They say Ham was critical of Peter Enns of the BioLogos Foundation, a Christian group that seeks to find common ground with scientific findings, like evolution. The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Ham said in a recent blog post that Enns’ teachings undermine “the authority of the Word of God.”

 

Ham founded the Creation Museum, which includes exhibits based on Old Testament stories. He is also leading an effort to build an amusement park based on the story of Noah’s Ark, called the Ark Encounter.

Fiesta Bowl officials brace for findings

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Fiesta Bowl officials are bracing for what could be a scathing report from an internal investigation of the event’s financial and political dealings, some of which may have skirted, or even broken, state and federal law.

 

The report, which could come out as soon as next week, is the culmination of a probe by a three-member panel that includes two Fiesta Bowl board members and a retired Arizona Supreme Court justice.

 

Fiesta Bowl president and CEO John Junker, who in two decades directed the once-upstart bowl to the land of the BCS giants, was placed on paid administrative last month as the internal examination proceeded.

 

The investigation is separate from a state attorney general’s probe into possible criminal violations involving political contributions by Fiesta Bowl employees.

 

Bowl officials have indicated the internal report would be made public, except for any portions that the attorney general’s staff wants to remain private because of the ongoing criminal matter.

 

The affable, ever-present face of the bowl for two decades, Junker faces dismissal, depending on the board’s interpretation of the report’s conclusions.

 

Junker, who makes about $600,000 a year, took a noticeably lower profile this year, even though the Fiesta Bowl was responsible for one of the most highly anticipated games in bowl history, the BCS championship matchup of unbeatens Auburn and Oregon.

 

His administrative leave came amid a series of announcements that hinted at the seriousness with which the board of directors — a group that long had served as a figurehead body, ceding major decisions to Junker — is taking its situation.

 

A week before the move on Junker, the Fiesta Bowl hired prominent Southern California attorney Nathan Hotchman, whose specialty is representing people and organizations involved in criminal negotiations.

 

The bowl also announced it no longer would give free game tickets to members of the Arizona Legislature. It has severed ties with a lobbying firm and a security consultant, each of whom had been paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by the bowl.

 

Persistent reporting by The Arizona Republic pushed the bowl into its exercise of self-criticism. The newspaper first reported in December 2009 that 14 current and former bowl employees said they had been encouraged to make contributions to certain politicians and were reimbursed the funds. If true, that would be a violation of state and federal campaign finance laws.

 

The bowl hired former state attorney general Grant Woods to look into the allegations. Woods’ review found “no credible evidence that the bowl’s management engaged in any type of illegal or unethical conduct.”

 

Now however, Woods — a Republican who is considering a run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Jon Kyl — has said he believes some of those who spoke to him might not have told the truth.

 

“Key people may have lied to me,” Woods told The Republic last month. “It’s one thing not to catch it, but it’s another thing if they were purposely trying for me not to find out.”

 

The Associated Press obtained the Fiesta Bowl tax forms for 2009, which included the eyebrow-raising figures that helped prompt the bowl’s board to get serious about its self-examination.

 

Chief among them were $508,776 in payments to Blue Steel Consulting, a security consulting firm operated as a side job by a Maricopa County sheriff’s lieutenant. The bowl also paid $286,206 to Husk Brothers, a lobbying firm, even though there was nothing before the Legislature that would have any significant impact on the bowl’s activities.

 

For now, the bowl’s status as one of the four BCS events is secure because three years remain on its contract. After that, the Fiesta could face a challenge from the Cotton Bowl, which has long sought a return to major bowl status and has a new stadium — Cowboys Stadium, in Arlington — to support its cause.

 

BUCKEYES:

ESPN analyst and former Ohio State quarterback Kirk Herbstreit is moving his family out of Ohio and heading for Tennessee. The reason? Buckeye fans.

Herbstreit said the move to Nashville, Tenn., was because of the constant criticism he has received from a vocal minority of Ohio State fans who don’t understand that his job at the network demands objectivity and fairness.

 

“Nobody loves Ohio State more than me,” said Herbstreit, a former Buckeyes quarterback. “I still have a picture of Woody Hayes and my dad (Jim, a former OSU player) in my office, and nobody will do more than I do for the university behind the scenes. But I’ve got a job to do, and I’m going to continue to be fair and objective. To continue to have to defend myself and my family in regards to my love and devotion to Ohio State is unfair.”

Herbstreit went on to note that “eighty to ninety percent of the Ohio State fans are great,” but it’s that extremely loud, extremely obnoxious ten percent that made life difficult.

RELIGION:

Five Things Everyone Should Know About The Bible, Believe It or Not

The Bible is a peculiar book, and it’s hard to get straight information about it. If you’re one of those people with a nagging feeling that you should know more about the Bible than you do — or even if you can recite chapter and verse (but don’t know that those chapters and verses come from a 13th century archbishop of Canterbury and a 16th century Parisian, respectively) — then these five basic things will catapult you to a new level of biblical literacy. Though I might be handing you clunky corrective eyewear instead of sexy kitten glasses, I promise that they will change the way you look at the Good Book, clarifying and focusing your understanding.

1. Every Bible is actually a collection of books. The word itself means something like “little library.” Many of the Bible’s books developed over a long period of time and include the input of a lot of people (ancient Israelites, Babylonian Jews and Greek pastors, to name a few), reflecting particular places (urban Jerusalem, the northern Galilee, rural Judah and ancient Persia, for example) and times (spanning as much as 1,000 years for the Old Testament and a couple of centuries for the New Testament). Plus, the collection as a whole developed over centuries. This helps to explain the tremendous variety of theological perspectives, literary style, and sometimes perplexing preoccupations (which animal parts go to which parties in which categories of sacrifices, e.g.), as well as why some texts disagree with others.

2. Not everyone who believes in it has the same Bible. There are actually different bibles, though they all started with Jews (but before Judaism, per se). The Christian bible includes and depends upon the Jewish bible — the Protestant Christian Old Testament is composed of the same books as the Jewish Hebrew Bible, arranged in a different order; and non-Protestant Christians include a few more books and parts of books (which also originated in Jewish circles) in their Old Testaments. The books of the Christian New Testament reflect the process of Jesus’ followers gradually distinguishing themselves from his religion, Judaism.

3. The Bible came after the literature it comprises. In other words, the material that became biblical wasn’t written in order to be part of a Bible. This helps to explain the existence of a book of erotic love poetry (Song of Songs), one that doesn’t mention God (Esther), another of intimate personal correspondence (Paul’s letter to Philemon) and maybe why none of it was written by Jesus. The biblical texts are not disinterested reporting of objective facts but come from people of faith informed by particular beliefs.

4. If you’re reading the Bible in English, you’re reading a translation. With the exception of a small minority of Aramaic texts, the books of the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible were all written in Hebrew. The books of the New Testament were written in Greek. Every translation is by nature interpretation. If you’ve ever studied a foreign language, you know that it’s impossible to convert exactly and for all time the literature or speech of any given language into another. A translator has to make choices. There are often several ways to render the original text, and changes in English affect the meaning we read as well.

5. Finally, this information about the Bible is compatible with belief in it. A person can simultaneously accept these truths about the Bible and the Bible as the Word of God. Doing so may require recalibrating assumptions, though, to allow for the possibility that God patiently works through people and time, enjoys a good debate and prefers inviting conversation over issuing absolutes. (Even the Ten Commandments, which would seem to be as absolute as anything, show up in two places in the Bible — and with some differences.)

The Bible’s endurance is astonishing. It continues to instruct and to inspire (in all sorts of interpretations and ways) the millions of people for whom it is their sacred and authoritative text. And it continues to ignite the imagination and enrich the speech, literature and art of people outside of the biblical faiths, too. Knowing the few bits of information provided here, as plain and pedantic as they may seem, makes it possible to make sense of the Bible — its uses and abuses — for yourself. It’s like having the kind of friend who you know will keep you straight, surprise and delight you and encourage you to keep becoming exactly you. This information is more than a starting point. It’s also a companion along the way, enabling new insights, providing correctives, and allowing space for the dynamism of your own ideas and learning.

INSPIRATION:

Anthony Robles, Born With One Leg, Becomes National Wrestling Champ

 

Arizona State senior Anthony Robles took home the title of national NCAA wrestling champion in the 125-pound weight class on Saturday, topping off a perfect season with a 7-1 win against Iowa defending champ Matt McDonough.

 

It’s a high achievement for anyone, but Robles did it all with only one leg, reports USA Today.

 

Robles, who was born without a right leg, told USA Today that the ostensible handicap has almost become an advantage in the ring. “I have such a strong grip, and that’s because of my crutches,” he said.

 

Robles said that he has spent this past year working on his mental game, but that he was still extremely nervous before the championship match. “I had a lot of butterflies going out there,” he told the New York Daily News. “I felt like I was going to throw up.”

 

Although Robles has said that he wrestles for love of the game — not for attention — he did draw strength from fans’ letters in the weeks prior to the match. “It inspires me when I get kids, even adults, who write me on Facebook and send me letters in the mail saying that I’ve inspired them,” Robles told USA Today.

 

Robles told ESPN that this was his last wrestling match, and that he hopes to pursue a career in public speaking after he graduates in May.

 

THIS IS AWESOME!!!

What Man Understands That He Is Dying Daily? (This Is Your Life)
by BRETT & KATE MCKAY-A MAN’S LIFE

The largest portion of our life passes while we are doing ill, a goodly share while we are doing nothing, and the whole while we are doing that which is not to the purpose. What man can you show me who places any value on his time, who reckons the worth of each day, who understands that he is dying daily? For we are mistaken when we look forward to death; the major portion of death has already passed. Whatever years be behind us are in death’s hands. –Seneca

When I was a kid and looked at pictures of my dad like the one above, he seemed so old to me. He seemed to exist in a place so far distant that it inhabited a completely different universe than mine. He was assuredly an adult. He had begun life, and he knew it.

A few weeks ago as I was holding Gus, I thought about those old photos, and the thought struck me like a thunderbolt: This is your life. I’m sure this revelation seems quite obvious, what else would it be? But what I mean is that I realized that my life had come full circle. Those old pictures of my parents? Now that was me. That time that had seemed so far away had arrived. This was my life.

There’s nothing like having a kid to make you acutely aware of your own mortality. As Jerry Seinfeld observed when he had kids, “Make no mistake about why these babies are here – they are here to replace us.” It’s amazing to look at a baby and realize he is a completely new person, a new person who literally has his whole life ahead of him. This little creature hasn’t even gone to kindergarten yet. And that’s when you realize that a third of your life is over, a whole dang third of it.

I realized I had always expected that at a certain point some signal would be given, some change would come over me, and then I would know that my “real” life had started. After all, if people always ask what you want to be when you grow-up, you figure one day you’ll simply know you’ve grown-up, that you’ve hit that milestone and are officially an adult, and that all adults get initiated into this special knowledge. I thought this moment would come when I went off to college or graduated from it, or when I got married, and surely when I had kids. But that transformative moment never came. Each day was just like the rest. I had been living my life all along. This was my life.

The shortness of life, the fact that one must enjoy the journey instead of focusing on a destination, is surely one of the most popular themes of books, songs, and movies. And so I was almost hesitant to tread where many have trod before with this article. But the fact of the matter is that all those calls to seize the day just go in one ear and out the other, they exist as a cloud of white noise until you have your own, personal “this is your life” moment. A moment when the brevity of life hits you like a ton of bricks and knocks the wind out of you. When you finally understand, deep down in your soul, that the clock’s been running since your were born and keeps on ticking away. So perhaps for some man, somewhere, this post will serve as that wake up call.

Food for Worms

That skull had a tongue in it, and could sing once:
how the knave jowls it to the ground, as if it were
Cain’s jaw-bone, that did the first murder! It
might be the pate of a politician, which this ass
now o’er-reaches; one that would circumvent God,
might it not? …

There’s another: why may not that be the skull of a
lawyer? Where be his quiddities now, his quillets,
his cases, his tenures, and his tricks?

In Act V, Scene 1, of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Hamlet and Horatio converse with a pair of gravediggers in a cemetery. When Hamlet looks upon the skulls of the dead, he imagines the life they had once enjoyed in the flesh. This leads him to picture the bones of Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar, once mighty men, now moldering in the dust like any other mortal. The reality of death hits Hamlet right in the gut, and he has a “this is your life” moment.

In looking for old photographs to use on AoM, I’ll often find a picture particularly arresting; the vividness of the man’s life at the time the camera flashed upon it jumps out and holds my gaze. And I’ll take a minute to look at his face, to think about the way his day to day life felt no less real than mine does, that his present, his world, felt no less important, that his feelings and aspirations felt no less vital. And how his body is now lying six feet underground somewhere. His life felt just as endless as ours does and yet he has vanished from the earth. 100 years down the road someone might look at our face in an old wrinkled photograph and wonder about the life we lived. Hold that image in your mind for a second…

It’s a moment captured very well in the famous carpe diem scene in the film, The Dead Poets Society:

My 10 year high school reunion is coming up this year. I was thinking about this, and thinking about how astoundingly quickly the 10 years had gone by. And then I thought about how I might only get 5 more of those ten year periods. I thought about 5 apples lined up on a counter. Not very many. 5 apples before I’m food for worms.

No Time Like the Present

Why do we always put off doing what we dream about until some point in the future? Researchers have found that humans are very bad at predicting “resource slack.” When asked to guess how much money and time they’ll have in the future, they accurately predict that their financial situation will remain relatively the same, but they think that their free time will expand. This creates what is a termed the “Yes…Damn!” moment….which happens when you say yes to a commitment that’s a few months away, thinking you’ll have plenty of time to do it when it finally comes around, only to realize when it arrives that you’re just as busy as you ever were. Yes…Damn!

This blind spot in our perception is why we confidently tell ourselves that we’ll start that business, lose the weight, repair our relationship, get organized…in a few weeks or a few months, because then we’ll have more time. It’s an illusion. It’s a self-deception that allows us to soothe the pangs of our unfulfilled desires with the panacea that now is not the right time. The mirage of the time-filled future can string a man along until he’s 80, has one foot in the grave, and realizes that the expanse of time he imagined would open never appeared.

When I was in a college, I remember a mentor told me that I’d never have as much time in my life as I had right then. I didn’t believe him at the time; with a heavy course load and a job I felt incredibly busy. And then I got married and got a job. And then I had a baby. Looking back I cannot believe how much time I had back in college. Buckets of time have not opened up as I’ve gotten older–quite the opposite. And I’ve come to realize that the time I think I need to accomplish what I want to do will never magically materialize. It’s now or never.

All Aboard!

“The fool, with all his other faults, has this also, he is always getting ready to live.” Reflect, my esteemed Lucilius, what this saying means, and you will see how revolting is the fickleness of men who lay down every day new foundations of life, and begin to build up fresh hopes even at the brink of the grave. Look within your own mind for individual instances; you will think of old men who are preparing themselves at that very hour for a political career, or for travel, or for business. And what is baser than getting ready to live when you are already old? -Seneca

We live in a culture that prizes and seeks “once-in-a-lifetime” moments. But in reality every moment is a once-in-a-lifetime moment. You’ll never be 25 years old on March 21, 2011 at 8:00 am ever again. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime moment; once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Time goes so slowly, we age so slowly that it’s almost impossible to understand and to realize that time is a finite commodity. It feels as though we are standing still, when in reality we are all traveling on a train that is ever hurtling onward. Look out the “window:” you will never see the scene you glimpse in that instant ever again; it fades immediately into the distance, gone forever. Breathe in, breathe out. Life just moved on a bit and you’re a little bit older.

It at once becomes starkly clear the great tragedy in always waiting for your life to begin. If you wait for your life to start, it never will. This is your life, right now. Whether you’re in a college dorm room, or your first apartment, or a brand new house in the burbs. Whether you’re single, dating, or married. This is your life. Whatever it is you want to do, whatever it is you want to change about yourself, whatever it is you want to see and feel and experience in this lifetime, you can’t put it off until your life begins or it will never happen. Get started now. And start savoring these every day, once-in-a-lifetime moments.
