Internet Web Killer ? FCC's New Web Rules Trigger Washington Fog Machine


_________________________________________________________________________

Many people who use the Internet and are aware that the Federal Communications Commission just made an important decision involving the Web are wondering: What the heck happened Tuesday?

The statements from President Obama and House Speaker-in-waiting Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) don't provide much help. 

They seem to be describing two alternate universes, one where the primary color is blue, the other red.

Not surprisingly, Obama praised the decision from the FCC which has a 3-2 Democratic majority and whose chair, Julius Genachowski, headed up the Obama campaign's telecommunications-policy team:

Today’s decision will help preserve the free and open nature of the Internet while encouraging innovation, protecting consumer choice, and defending free speech. Throughout this process, parties on all sides of this issue – from consumer groups to technology companies to broadband providers – came together to make their voices heard. This decision is an important component of our overall strategy to advance American innovation, economic growth, and job creation.

As a candidate for President, I pledged to preserve the freedom and openness that have allowed the Internet to become a transformative and powerful platform for speech and expression.  That’s a pledge I’ll continue to keep as President.  As technology and the market continue to evolve at a rapid pace, my Administration will remain vigilant and see to it that innovation is allowed to flourish, that consumers are protected from abuse, and that the democratic spirit of the Internet remains intact.

Meanwhile, Boehner slammed the decision as a "job-killing" which, it must be said, he applies to virtually every piece of Democratic legislation or policy decision these days:

“Today’s action by the FCC will hurt our economy, stifle private-sector job creation, and undermine the entrepreneurship and innovation of Internet-related American employers.  The American people are asking ‘Where are the jobs?’  They aren’t asking for yet another government takeover that imposes more job-killing federal regulations and puts bureaucrats in charge of the Internet.  Federal bureaucrats should not be in the business of regulating the Internet, and the new House majority will work to reverse this unnecessary and harmful federal government power grab next year."

As I said, more heat than light comes from those two statements. Put another way, the Washington fog machine was going full tilt Tuesday. CLICK HERE FOR MORE

Jeff Bridges One Hot Ticket: Two New Movies This Month


___________________________________________________________________________

Jeff Bridges: The Dude takes on the Duke

BY JOE WILLIAMS • Post-Dispatch Film Critic

Let's make it official: It's Jeff Bridges' world, and the rest of us are just living in it.

No actor is having a better year than Bridges at age 61. He's the reigning Oscar winner, for "Crazy Heart," the drunken-troubadour story that was released last December. This week, he'll have two hotly anticipated movies in theaters: the just-released sci-fi sequel "TRON: Legacy," which also features a computer-generated version of his younger self, and the Western remake "True Grit," which opens locally Wednesday.

Bridges does commercial voice-overs for batteries and imported cars. He's published a book of his on-set photographs and is working on his second record album. He's on the cover of GQ for its Man of the Year issue. And "The Big Lebowski," his zesty little enterprise with the Coen brothers, may be the most quoted comedy in history.

Relatively late in a half-century acting career, Bridges has become such a fixture in our lives that audiences think they know him. But the dude is not the Dude.

Jeff Bridges: The Dude takes on the Duke Retakes 'True Grit' - Remake Opens Tomorrow

____________________________________________________________________________

Coens' 'True Grit' a worthy remake
BY JOE WILLIAMS • Post-Dispatch Film Critic


In conventional Westerns, the heroes are men of honor who let their guns do the talking. In "True Grit," the heroes are a trigger-happy drunk and a 14-year-old girl who could talk the birds from the trees.


Casual moviegoers may regard the new remake of the 1969 film that won an Oscar for John Wayne as sacrilege. But true aficionados of both Western movies and Western literature should rejoice. Instead of deferring to the Duke, co-directors Joel and Ethan Coen have staked a claim to the source novel by Charles Portis, unearthing a gold mine of rich dialogue, rollicking adventure and resonant ideas about the American dream.
It's circa 1880, and northwest Arkansas is at the end of the rail line. Mattie Hayes (Hailee Steinfeld, astonishingly assured in her film debut), travels to a half-civilized outpost to retrieve the body of her cotton-merchant father and to track the scoundrel who shot him, Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin). She hires the meanest marshal in the territory, one-eyed Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges, as gruff as a grizzly), and after he sobers up, they ride off in search of the gang that Chaney may have joined.

It's rare for the Coens to make a movie with a PG-13 rating, and with its rousing score by Carter Burwell and scenic cinematography by Roger Deakins, "True Grit" is just a couple bloody gunfights removed from an old-fashioned Disney yarn. Yet it's still unmistakably a Coen brothers movie, from the stray weirdness of a bearskin-clad dentist to the bulls-eye delights of the dialogue.Click Here for more info.

Missouri Loses Congressional Seat, Drops From 9 to 8


_________________________________________________________________________
  
(AP) — Missouri's loss of one congressional seat will give the state its smallest delegation since the 1850 census and provide Republicans who control the state Legislature with an opportunity to redraw districts to solidify their party's power.

The U.S. Census Bureau announced Tuesday that Missouri's delegation will shrink from nine to eight seats as its population grows more slowly than the nation's as a whole. Missouri's population grew by 7 percent, but entire country's population grew by 9.7 percent, the bureau said. Every 10 years, the 435 seats in the U.S. House are redistributed among the states based on population.

The loss of the seat means one of Missouri's federal lawmakers likely will be forced out of a job, and with its voice in Washington reduced, the state is likely to get less federal money for local projects. It also will lose a seat in the Electoral College, reducing its influence in presidential elections.

Missouri's congressional delegation peaked at 16 from 1900 to 1920. The state most recently lost a seat after the 1980 census cut the number of districts from 10 to nine. That consolidation helped cost Republican Wendell Bailey his seat in Congress. He lost in the 1982 election to Democrat Ike Skelton.

Some have speculated the loss of another seat this year could similarly force out Democratic U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan in two years. Carnahan won re-election to his St. Louis-area seat this year in a tight contest against Republican challenger Ed Martin. Carnahan's district extends south from St. Louis into Jefferson and Ste. Genevieve counties along the Mississippi River.

Missouri's other Democratic federal lawmakers are Lacy Clay, whose district includes St. Louis city and St. Louis County, and Emanuel Cleaver, who represents a Kansas City-area district.

Word of the Year: Austerity - More than 250,000 Searches in 2010


__________________________________________________________________________

Word of the Year: Austerity

Infowars.com
December 20, 2010

The noun was searched so many times on Merriam-Webster’s website, the dictionary decided to make it word of the year. According to John Morse, president and publisher, “austerity” saw more than 250,000 searches on the dictionary’s free online tool and came with more coverage of the engineered debt crisis.


“What we look for… what are the words that have had spikes that strike us very much as an anomaly for their regular behavior,” Morse said. “The word that really qualifies this year for that is ‘austerity,’” Morse told the Associated Press.


The words “pragmatic” and “socialism” were runner-ups.


Austerity is definately on the menu and that is why so many searched the word. It is not merely Greece and Ireland that will feel the pinch, but the United States as well. “Like it or not, what I call stealth austerity is already hitting America. Just look at individual state budgets that are covered in red ink,” writes Greg Hunter.


Look no further than the tidal wave of foreclosures and unemployment figures that grow every month. “This is what stealth austerity looks like.  Pretty soon, it will be uncloaked and brought out into the light of day. When that happens, it will be like the economy taking a nose dive into the deep end of a swimming pool with no water to cushion the plunge,” writes Hunter.
Let’s hope it is “revolution.”

U.S. Population: Nearly 309 Million Census Says


____________________________________________________________________________

The nation's 23rd census has concluded that the U.S. population stood at 308,745,538 on April 1 of this year, up 9.7% from 281,421,906 in the year 2000, the Census Bureau announced today.




Census Director Robert Groves was asked about whether the count includes non-citizens — or the "undocumented."   "In every Census since 1790, we have counted all persons who live in the country," he says. "We count residents, whether they are citizens or not."


The rate of growth is the slowest since the Great Depression years (when the population grew 7.3%).  60% of the increase was "natural" — from births. The other 40%s was from immigration.
On apportionment in the House, Census says that based on the new population estimate:
— Eight states will gain members in the House. They are: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Washington.
— Ten states will lose members in the House. They are: Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Census shows slowing US growth, brings GOP gains

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican-leaning states will pick up a half dozen House seats thanks to the 2010 census, which found the nation's population growing more slowly than in past decades but still shifting to the South and West.


The Census Bureau announced Tuesday that the nation's population on April 1 was 308,745,538, up from 281.4 million a decade ago. The growth rate for the past decade was 9.7 percent, a slower pace than the 13.2 percent population increase from 1990 to 2000.


Only one state, Michigan, lost population during the past decade. Nevada, with a 35 percent increase, was the fastest-growing state.


The new numbers are a boon for Republicans, with Texas leading the way among GOP-leaning states that will gain House seats at the Rust Belt's expense. Following each once-a-decade census, the nation must reapportion the House's 435 districts to make them roughly equal in population, with each state getting at least one seat.


That triggers an often contentious and partisan process in many states, which will draw new congressional district lines that can help or hurt either party.


Texas will gain four new House seats, and Florida will gain two. Gaining one each are Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina, Utah and Washington.


Ohio and New York will lose two House seats each. Losing one House seat are Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.


Florida will now have as many U.S. House members as New York: 27. California will still have 53 seats, and Texas will climb to 36.


In 2008, President Barack Obama lost in Texas and most of the other states that are gaining House seats. He carried most of the states that are losing House seats, including Ohio and Pennsylvania. Each House district represents an electoral vote in the presidential election process, meaning the political map for the 2012 election will tilt somewhat more Republican.


For the first time in its history, Democratic-leaning California will not gain a House seat after a census.


Starting early next year, most state governments will use detailed, computer-generated data on voting patterns to carve neighborhoods in or out of newly drawn House districts, tilting them more to the left or right. Sometimes politicians play it safe, quietly agreeing to protect Republican and Democratic incumbents alike. But sometimes the party in control will gamble and aggressively try to reconfigure the map to dump as many opponents as possible.


Last month's elections put Republicans in full control of numerous state governments, giving the GOP an overall edge in the redistricting process. State governments' ability to gerrymander districts is somewhat limited, however, by court rulings that require roughly equal populations, among other things. The 1965 Voting Rights Act protects ethnic minorities in several states that are subject to U.S. Justice Department oversight.


The U.S. is still growing quickly relative to other developed nations. The population in France and England each increased roughly 5 percent over the past decade, while in Japan the number is largely unchanged, and Germany's population is declining. China grew at about 6 percent; Canada's growth rate is roughly 10 percent.


The declining U.S. growth rate since 2000 is due partly to the economic meltdown in 2008, which brought U.S. births and illegal immigration to a near standstill compared with previous years. The 2010 count represents the number of people -- citizens as well as legal and illegal immigrants -- who called the U.S. their home on April 1.

FBI PRESS RELEASE: Crime Down from January to June 2010

 __________________________________________________________________________

Washington, D.C. December 20, 2010
  • FBI National Press Office 

FBI Releases Preliminary Semiannual 

Crime Statistics for 2010


According to the FBI's Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Report released today, the nation experienced a 6.2 percent decrease in the number of violent crimes and a 2.8 percent decline in the number of property crimes from January to June 2010, when compared with data from the same time period in the prior year. The report is based on information from more than 12,000 law enforcement agencies that submitted three to six comparable months of data to the FBI during the first six months of both 2009 and 2010.

Violent Crime
  • From January to June 2010, all four of the offense types in the violent crime category declined nationwide when compared with data for the same time period in 2009. Robbery fell 10.7 percent, murder was down 7.1 percent, forcible rape declined 6.2 percent, and aggravated assault decreased 3.9 percent.
  • Violent crime declined in all city groups, with the largest decrease, 8.3 percent, in cities with populations of 500,000 to 999,999 persons. Violent crime was also down in both nonmetropolitan and metropolitan counties, with declines of 7.6 percent and 6.2 percent, respectively.
  • For the six-month comparison period, violent crime fell in all four regions of the nation: 7.8 percent in the South, 7.2 percent in both the Midwest and the West, and 0.2 percent in the Northeast. The Northeast was the only region to experience an increase in murders, 5.7 percent. Murder declined in the other three regions—12.0 percent in the South, 7.1 percent in the West, and 6.3 percent in the Midwest.
Property Crime
  • Property crime was down 2.8 percent nationwide for the first six months of 2010 compared with data for the same months of 2009. Motor vehicle theft dropped 9.7 percent, larceny-theft fell 2.3 percent, and burglary decreased 1.4 percent.
  • Property crime declined in all four regions, with a 3.6 percent decrease in the South, a 3.1 percent decrease in the West, a 2.5 decrease in the Midwest, and a 0.2 percent decrease in the Northeast.
  • Cities with 500,000 to 999,999 inhabitants experienced a 4.8 percent drop in property crime. In nonmetropolitan counties, property crime increased 1.0 percent, but it decreased 2.4 percent in metropolitan counties.

Arson
Arson offenses, which are tracked separately from other property crimes, decreased 14.6 percent nationwide. By population group, the largest decline in the number of arson offenses (17.2 percent) was in cities with populations of 50,000 to 99,999 residents. Arson also fell in metropolitan counties by 21.6 percent and in nonmetropolitan counties by 19.4 percent. Law enforcement agencies in all four regions reported fewer arsons, including declines of 17.6 percent in the West, 14.3 percent in the South, 12.6 percent in the Midwest, and 10.2 percent in the Northeast.

Note: Caution against Ranking—When the FBI publishes crime data in its Uniform Crime Reports throughout the year, some entities use the figures to compile rankings of cities and counties. These rough rankings provide no insight into the numerous variables that mold crime in a particular town, city, county, state, tribal area, or region. Consequently, they lead to simplistic and/or incomplete analyses that often create misleading perceptions adversely affecting communities and their residents. Valid assessments are possible only with careful study and analysis of the range of unique conditions affecting each local law enforcement jurisdiction. The data user is, therefore, cautioned against comparing statistical data of individual reporting units from cities, metropolitan areas, states, or colleges or universities solely on the basis of their population coverage or student enrollment.

The complete Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Report, January to June 2010, is available exclusively at http://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/crimestats.

____________________________________________________________________________

Total Lunar Eclipse on Winter Solstice 2010

by: Sorena007 December 21, 2010

A total lunar eclipse was visible from 12:27 a.m. to 6:06 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (5:27--11:06 UTC) on December 21 in North and South America. In the Central Standard Timezone and west, the eclipse began the night of December 20. It was the first total lunar eclipse to occur on the day of the Northern Winter Solstice (Southern Summer Solstice) since 1638, and only the second in the Common Era.

Full moon December, 21st 2010
by: JamesBeason8 December 21, 2010

I thought the eclipse was at 3:13am. I was wrong. 3:13am was the peek of the fullness but 10:30 was the eclipse. I seen a bit of the eclipse around 12:00am but was not recordable due to the clouds. The part I seen was the ending, I thought it was the beginning. I got a really good zoom on the Moon, even threw the clouds.

Total Lunar Eclipse December 2010 Winter Solstice
by: punkrockgoddess77 December 21, 2010

the eclipse fell on the same date as the year's winter solstice.
the moon appeared very high in the night sky,
as the solstice marks the time when the earth's axial tilt is farthest away from the sun.

the moon takes on this color because indirect sunlight is still able to pass through earth's atmosphere and cast a glow on the moon. our atmosphere filters out most of the blue colored light, leaving the red and orange hues that we see during a lunar eclipse.

unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are perfectly safe to view without any special glasses or equipment.

2010 Census Report comes out Tuesday: New population count may complicate Obama 2012 re-election bid


___________________________________________________________________________

WASHINGTON (AP) - The 2010 census report coming out Tuesday will include a boatload of good political news for Republicans and grim data for Democrats hoping to re-elect President Barack Obama and rebound from last month's devastating elections.

The population continues to shift from Democratic-leaning Rust Belt states to Republican-leaning Sun Belt states, a trend the Census Bureau will detail in its once-a-decade report to the president. Political clout shifts, too, because the nation must reapportion the 435 House districts to make them roughly equal in population, based on the latest census figures.

The biggest gainer will be Texas, a GOP-dominated state expected to gain up to four new House seats, for a total of 36. The chief losers - New York and Ohio, each projected by nongovernment analysts to lose two seats - were carried by Obama in 2008 and are typical of states in the Northeast and Midwest that are declining in political influence.
Democrats' problems don't end there.

November's elections put Republicans in control of dozens of state legislatures and governorships, just as states prepare to redraw their congressional and legislative district maps. It's often a brutally partisan process, and Republicans' control in those states will enable them to create new districts to their liking.

The combination of population shifts and the recent election results could make Obama's re-election campaign more difficult. Each House seat represents an electoral vote in the presidential election process, giving more weight to states Obama probably will lose in 2012. The states he carried in 2008 are projected to lose, on balance, six electoral votes to states that his GOP challenger, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, won. That sets a higher bar for Obama before his re-election campaign even starts.

Of course, any number of things can happen before the 2012 elections...
