Hermann High School senior Lauren Dudgeon, signs letter of intent to play for East Central College - Missouri


_______________________________________________________

NEWEST FALCON -- Congratulations to Hermann High School senior middle hitter Lauren Dudgeon, seated at center, who recently, signed a letter of intent to play Volleyball for ECC next season.

Dudgeon, a 5-10 senior was a three-year volleyball starter for Hermann.  She also played on two Class 2 state championship teams and one that placed second.

Hermann won the Class 2 state title this year, defeating St. Pius X of Festus, finishing with a 34-4-3 record.
 

"We are really happy to have Lauren become part of our program," said Coach Brad Bruns. "She's a solid player and a strong blocker. She continues a Hermann pipeline that has been good to us."
 

Dudgeon led the Lady Bearcats in solo blocks (30) this year. She was second in kills (176) and was among the team leaders in digs with 186.
 

She is the first signee for Coach Bruns this year, and joins   a long list of Hermann High School volleyball players who have gone to ECC.
 

Four years ago Erica LaBoube, Jamie Murray and Alyssa Speckhals, all from Hermann, were instrumental in leading ECC to the school's first trip to the NJCAA Division II national tournament. This year three players from Hermann, Kasey Kirchhofer, Lacey Lackman and Hilary Trevino were on the ECC team that went to nationals.

"The Walking Dead" finale highest rated in basic cable history - 18-49 demographic


___________________________________________________________________________________

The ratings for "The Walking Dead's" just-ended first season have been such that perhaps AMC is wishing that it had lasted more than just six weeks.

The anticipation for the season finale garnered six million viewers, according to the network, and it received the highest ratings of any basic cable show, ever, in the all-important 18-49 demographic.

To put those numbers into perspective, October's season finale of "Mad Men" had an audience of 2.44 million, according to TVbytheNumbers.com.

(On the other hand, that 18-49 number is very important, because the New York Post reported in 2007 that a post-"High School Musical 2" episode of "Hannah Montana," with much of its audience under 18, averaged 10.7 million

Visa and MasterCard Suspend Wikileaks Accounts but Klu Klux Klan is A-OK Active


_____________________________________________________________________________________

Visa & MasterCard: KKK Is A-OK, But Wikileaks Is Wicked

from the starvation-through-political-pressure dept

Well, it looks like we can add Visa to the list of companies pressured into no longer working with Wikileaks, following a similar move by MasterCard. At least, unlike MasterCard, Visa isn't already claiming that Wikileaks was convicted of a crime. Instead, it's just said that it's suspended any work with Wikileaks "pending further investigation into the nature of its business and whether it contravenes Visa operating rules."

As Charles Arthur points out, the Ku Klux Klan's website points you to a site that takes both MasterCard and Visa -- suggesting the pure arbitrariness of both credit card companies' decision here. It's a bad idea when firms start making decisions for political reasons.

Jet Lands in Pittsburgh after Terrorist Terrier Bites 2 Aboard...Detained Then Released

Jet lands in Pittsburgh after dog bites 2 aboard

 

A dog accompanying an elderly New Jersey woman on a US Airways flight to Phoenix became agitated and bit a passenger and a flight attendant Monday, forcing the pilot to make an unexpected stop in Pittsburgh.

The 12-pound Manchester terrier named Mandy was riding in an approved carrier on Flight 522 from Newark, N.J., airline and local authorities said. The dog's 89-year-old owner was one of 122 passengers and five crew members aboard.

The dog bit a passenger who had tried to calm it and then broke out of its cage, officials said. The animal then ran up the plane's aisle and bit a flight attendant who tried to grab it.

The bites were not severe, but the pilot landed the plane as a precaution, US Airways spokesman Todd Lehmacher said.

"We allow pets in the cabin as long as they are in an approved container and under the seat in the carrier," Lehmacher said.

The flight resumed without the woman and her dog, and landed in Phoenix hours later. 

The woman, whose name was not released, spoke with authorities in Pittsburgh before boarding a different flight to Phoenix with her dog.

Facebook Users Start Massive Search for Cartoon Images in support of Child Welfare Campaign

_________________________________________

Facebook users search en masse for cartoon images for child welfare campaign

If you took a look at Google trends Saturday morning, you'll have gotten a sense of just how much Facebook influences what Americans are searching for.

Nearly every single one of the 20 most actively searched terms has to do with "old cartoons."  Folks, it seems, are looking up cartoon images for a viral campaign that's gaining a lot of traction on Facebook: People are changing their profile picture to an old cartoon image (Foghorn Leghorn, Bugs Bunny, Captain Caveman, Hong Kong Phooey, etc.), apparently to raise awareness of violence against children.

The origins of the campaign itself are less clear -- there's a Facebook page created by "an unnamed volunteer who aims to raise awareness about Worldwide Violence Against Children and Child Abuse," but no actual website, no detailed information about the issues at hand, no way to donate money, and nothing about the history of the campaign.

As Mashable noted in a widely shared post about the campaign, National Child Abuse Prevention Month isn't until April.

There have been a number of instances of Facebookers changing their profile pictures -- also sometimes called avatars -- to support a political cause.  Last year many people dyed their profile shot green in support of Iranian protesters, and around that time some also "blacked out" their avatars to show solidarity with copyright activists in New Zealand.

It was started by a British charity, the NSPCC, as a campaign to spread awareness of child abuse.

Change your Facebook profile picture to a cartoon character from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same for the NSPCC. Until Monday (December 6th) there should be no human faces on Facebook but an invasion of memories. This is a campaign to stop violence against children.

Missouri Tigers Play Iowa Hawkeyes In Insight Bowl on December 28th in Tempe, Arizona

 
_____________________________________________________________________________________

Mizzou will play Iowa for the first time in a century when the two meet in the Insight Bowl on December 28th in Tempe, Arizona. 

The two schools last played in 1910, and Missouri declined to play a planned four-game series with the Hawkeyes between 2004 and 2007. Head coach Gary Pinkel said the Tigers were trying to build their program, and to play an elite program like Iowa didn't make a lot of sense at the time. 

The Tigers have won 40 games over the past four seasons, and will extend their school-record bowl streak to six.

The Hermann Lady Bearcats are seeded third in the 30th annual Montgomery County Basketball Tournament that starts Monday, Nov. 29.

   The Lady Bearcats, who won the tourney last year with a win over Mexico in the championship game, were seeded behind Mexico (#1) and Clopton (#2) in this year's event.

 
The winner of the Hermann-Wellsville game will play the winner of the Clopton and Fulton game on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 6 p.m. The two losers of the first-round games will play at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 1.

   The championship game is scheduled for 9 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 3.

   Hermann defeated Mexico, 56-48, in the championship game last year. It was the Lady Bearcats' first title at Montgomery City in 18 years. 

   Shelby Winkelmann and Ashley Brooks, both senior guards, are the only two starters back from last year's team that was 26-4 and reached the state quarterfinals.

   Winkelmann is Hermann's all-time scoring leader with 2,321 points in three seasons. Last year she led the St. Louis area in scoring with 829 points, a 27.5 pergame average. Brooks was the team's second leading scorer, averaging over 10 points a game.

   Jamie Gleeson, a 5-10 freshman, will play with the varsity when it opens the season in the Montgomery County Tournament. A second freshman, Karinne Lane, a   5-2 guard, will be a member of the varsity, but will play with the junior varsity in the Hermann JV Tournament, which goes on the same week as the Montgomery County tourney.

   Hermann Coach Todd Anderson will have only seven girls dress for the Montgomery Tournament, since the rest of the squad will play in the Hermann JV Tournament.

   The Lady Bearcats won the Four Rivers Conference title last year for the first time since 1988, going undefeated in league games.But they will have   their hands full this winter. The league is loaded with talented teams. Pacific, St. Clair, St. James, Sullivan, Union and New Haven all return veteran lineups.

   Hermann will play in the Prepscast Elite Shootout at CBC again this season, and its opponent will be St. Dominic, a Class 4 final four team last season. That game will be Jan. 8, 2011, at 5:30 p.m.

   The Lady Bearcats will also play in the Mike Kehoe Shootout at Jefferson City High School on Dec. 27, and their opponent will be California at 5 p.m.

St. Louis Head Coach, Steve Spagnuolo Weekly Press Conference - Rams stingy defense

 
___________________________________________________________________________________

St. Louis Rams stingy defense

There was no need for rookie magic from Sam Bradford. Not the way the St. Louis Rams' defense was playing.

The Rams lifted the pressure off the No. 1 pick's shoulders in Sunday's 19-6 victory at Arizona, shutting out the Cardinals the last three quarters. St. Louis had four sacks and two interceptions, constantly harassing a trio of quarterbacks in a performance that fit defensive-minded coach Steve Spagnuolo's vision.

Surprising St. Louis figures to need a repeat performance from that side of the ball this week when they face the potent New Orleans Saints in the last of three straight road games.

VFW updating its image to entice younger veterans to join



_______________________________________________________
http://heroes.vfw.org

After years of declining membership, leaders of local VFW posts are working to update the organization's image, and their efforts have brought in a surge of young troops.

In Missouri last year, about 2,600 new members signed up, and in Illinois, the number reached 8,000.

"A lot of people think the VFW is just a bunch of old guys sitting around getting drunk, smoking cigars and telling war stories, but we're more than that," said Tom Mundell, 60, commander of Overland-St. Ann Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3944.

While VFW posts always will provide camaraderie and support, leaders recognize that some young veterans might not smoke or drink. They know that today's veterans include a good number of women, that many are into technology, and they have young children, so they want more events that are family-oriented.


Several posts have answered by taking steps to make their facilities more attractive. For instance, the post in Arnold put up a new building that provides easy access to Interstate 55. 

Others have added Wi-Fi cafes or hosted sports leagues or dances with live music. Some simply made an extra effort to make veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan feel welcome by personally asking them to join.

The primary mission of the organization is to ensure that veterans of foreign wars get the medical and educational benefits they deserve. 

With the ranks of World War II, Korean and Vietnam veterans dwindling, local leaders want to make sure assistance continues for younger soldiers.

Posts have tried several strategies to get out their message, including using social media such as Facebook, as well as spots on radio, TV and in print media. 

In addition, the VFW is now making presentations at meetings that all veterans are required to attend when they return from a combat zone.

Supreme Court to hear Wal-Mart case: Claim of discrimination against hundreds of thousands of women in pay and promotion


___________________________________________________________________________

The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear an appeal in the biggest employment discrimination case in the nation's history, one claiming that Wal-Mart Stores discriminated against hundreds of thousands of women in pay and promotion. The lawsuit seeks back pay that could amount to billions of dollars.

The question before the court is not whether there was discrimination but rather whether the claims by the individual employees may be combined as a class action. The court's decision on that issue will almost certainly affect all sorts of class-action suits, including ones asserting antitrust, securities and product liability, as well as other claims.

If nothing else, many pending class actions will slow or stop while litigants and courts await the decision in the case. Arguments in the case are likely to be heard this spring with a decision expected by the end of June.

In April, an 11-member panel of the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, in San Francisco, ruled 6-5 that the class action could go forward.

Judge Michael Daly Hawkins, writing for the majority, said the company's policies and treatment of women were similar enough that a single lawsuit was both efficient and appropriate. He added that the six women who represent the class, four of whom had left Wal-Mart, had claims typical of the other plaintiffs.

The size of the proposed class was not an obstacle, Judge Susan Graber wrote in a concurrence.
