Lea Michele Too Sexy For Her Glee Fans - Mom's Mad

_________________________________________________________________________

Parents 'Gleek Out' Over Cosmo Cover

February 6, 2011

_________________________________________________________________________ .

Parents are up in arms over Glee star Lea Michele's Cosmopolitan cover depicting an image many find too sexy for her fans.

BY ANDREW HOWARD

You're watching multisource entertainment video news analysis from Newsy.

Moms are mad. The March cover of Cosmopolitan, which shows Lea Michele with a disproportionate skin-to-clothing ratio, has teenage boys drooling, and parents up in arms.

The star of the hit TV series Glee is no stranger to controversy. Michele and fellow cast members Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron took a lot of heat for this risqué GQ photo shoot back in November.

With her new Cosmopolitan cover splashed with headlines like“The Sex Quiz”, “Get Naked” and “For His Thighs Only” - Fox reports many parents aren’t breaking out into song over the glee star’s new image.

“These peeved parents say Michele, as an actress who plays a high school student on a TV show watched largely by teen and pre-teen viewers, has a responsibility to their kids to keep things a little more buttoned up.”

That same article quotes Suzette Valle, a mother of two teenagers. She says...

“It’s irresponsible to be using an adult who represents a minor dressed in provacative clothes. I think Cosmo is now taking advantage of the raucous GQ caused with their ‘Glee’ cover and hoping to cash in on the press it got.”

But a blogger for Zap2it says- Fox News would track down some mad moms.

“The parents claim that because Michele plays a high school ‘good girl’ on TV, she should uphold that image off-screen as well. No word on whether these parents understand what ‘acting’ means, but we'd imagine they expect Jane Lynch to berate children in the street and Kevin McHale to remain wheelchair-bound at all times when in public.”

Amidst the criticism, The Boston Herald comes to Michele’s defense saying- here’s the deal.

“Lea Michele is a grown woman.... Cosmo is a magazine for ADULTS. The fact is, you can cleanse your house of the magazines, place controls over certain sites on your internet, and do everything in your power to block reality from your 13-year-old’s life. But it’s only going to do so much.”

For the record, Lea Michele is 24. Many media outlets report she has increasingly moved further away from her on screen character Rachel Berry. Who does she credit for her new found sexuality? Why Glee of course.

Green Bay Packers Hold On Beat Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 Super Bowl 45

ARLINGTON, Texas -- 
Aaron Rodgers has turned the Green Bay Packers into Super Bowl champions once again.
Rodgers threw three touchdown passes and Nick Collins returned an interception for another score, leading the Packers to a 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
This was Green Bay's fourth Super Bowl title. The Packers won the first two Super Bowls with Vince Lombardi coaching Bart Starr, and captured another with Brett Favre in January 1997.
The Steelers trailed 21-3 before halftime. Ben Roethlisberger got them within 28-25 midway through the fourth quarter with a touchdown pass and a nifty 2-point conversion. The Packers answered with a field goal, giving Roethlisberger one last chance.
Needing to go 87 yards in 1:59 with one timeout left, Roethlisberger couldn't make it across midfield.


Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and Nick Collins returned an interception 37 yards for a TD that staked the Green Bay Packers to a big lead in the Super Bowl, then Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers rallied to make things a lot more interesting going into the fourth quarter Sunday.


Green Bay led 21-17 after three quarters, but the Packers were without cornerbacks Charles Woodson and Sam Shields and receiver Donald Driver.


The Steelers had the momentum, the experience and the crowd - tens of thousands of fans twirling "Terrible Towels" and making things tough for Rodgers to bark out signals at times.


But on the first play of the fourth quarter, with Pittsburgh possibly driving for a go-ahead touchdown, Rashard Mendenhall fumbled on a hit by Clay Matthews Jr. The Packers took over at their own 45.


Pittsburgh already had chopped an 18-point deficit down to four. The Steelers had a chance to make it a one-point game, but Shaun Suisham missed a 52-yard field goal.


Another exciting Super Bowl finished appeared ahead, as was expected by oddsmakers and most fans. After all, these were the two defenses that allowed the fewest points in the league this season, and everyone says defense wins championships.


The biggest deficit overcome in a Super Bowl was 10 points, done by the Saints last year and by the Redskins against the Broncos in 1988.


Christina Aguilera got the game off to a rocky start by flubbing a line in the national anthem. The Steelers didn't do much better at the outset.


Green Bay jumped ahead 14-0 with touchdowns on consecutive plays: a 29-yard touchdown catch by Jordy Nelson, then Collins' interception, which featured a weaving return, a dive into the end zone and hip-swiveling dance toward the Pittsburgh sideline by B.J. Raji, the Packers' jumbo-sized nose tackle.


Rodgers stretched the lead to 21-3 by drilling a 21-yard touchdown pass to Greg Jennings. The ball whistled past safety Ryan Clark, with Jennings making a tough catch look easy just before getting popped by Steelers safety Troy Polamalu. That drive also was set up by an interception, a pickoff at midfield by Jarrett Bush.


Roethlisberger's miserable first half turned a little better at the end.


Taking over deep in his own territory after Jennings' touchdown, he threw a 37-yard completion to Antwaan Randle El. That started a seven-play, 77-yard drive that ended with an 8-yard touchdown catch to former Super Bowl MVP Hines Ward.


Also on that drive, Woodson hurt his collarbone diving for a pass. He spent the second half in street clothes, with his left arm in a sling, appearing quite uncomfortable. Driver was out with an ankle injury, and Shields hurt a shoulder.


With two defensive backs out at the half, everyone expected the Steelers to come out throwing in the third quarter. Nope. They gained all 50 yards on their opening drive on the ground, with Mendenhall bowling in from the 8 for the touchdown. He jumped up and flung the ball into the stands with a two-handed basketball chest pass.

Egypt New VP Omar Suleiman - Attempted Assassination or Hearsay ?

_________________________________________________________________________

Egypt's New VP - Attempted Assassination or Not?

February 6, 2011
_________________________________________________________________________ .

BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER

You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy
 
All it took was one false news report on one of the most trending stories in the world to create a snowball effect on the news industry.
 
Here’s what Fox News reported about Egypt’s new vice president...  
 
“Fox News has exclusively learned that there was an assassination attempt on Omar Suleiman.”
 
...and here’s what happened.
 
“Reports are coming in that Egyptian vice president Omar Suleiman has survived an assassination bid.” (IBN)
 
“Egyptian vice president Omar Suleiman survived an assassination attempt that left two of his body guards dead.” (NewsX)
 
So...are the rumors true? CNN, who had false reports from a German diplomat, is just as baffled as everyone else.
 
“So again, I mean I think where we are now, is a confusing situation, but a retraction from the German ambassador saying that there was not a confirmed report of an assassination...”
 
Al Masry Al Youm reports its heard a different theory-- and says, perhaps the news was spread on purpose.
 
“...informed sources dismissed the news as false, adding that Suleiman was not even at the place where the claimed assassination attempt took place. The statements also accused the Muslim Brotherhood of circulating rumors.”

Kim Kardashian Brilliant Marketing Entrepreneur ?

Kim Kardashian Split Over Sexy Image?

February 6, 2011

_________________________________________________________________________
Kim K has branded herself as a sex symbol, but is she regretting that decision or just using the issue to get people talking? BY KRISTEN BRODY

You're watching multisource entertainment news analysis from Newsy
 
Kim Kardashian isn’t a famous athlete, she’s not an Oscar-winning actress, and she hasn’t released a hit song... yet... Many would argue that Kim K is famous for being sexy, but recently the brown eyed beauty has gone back and forth on whether she or not she actually wants to be.

November’s issue of W Magazine hit newsstands with a very naked Kim on the cover.

And now people are discussing the photos again... after the Dash doll freaked out on her current reality show “Kim and Kourtney take New York”.


“Artwork was gonna be covered on top of me, they said they weren’t going to show my ass crack or my nipple this is full [expletive] porn. Mom have you seen my cover? I feel so [expletive] taken advantage of they promised me I’d be fully covered, did you see the inside? I just am never getting naked again.”

And W took to The Wall Street Journal for their rebuttal: “Kim Kardashian’s cover was conceived as an artistic collaboration with well-known artist Barbara Kruger, and was a meditation on the influence that reality TV has on contemporary culture.”

Fox News isn’t letting Kim get away with all the media attention, calling her “Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde” and citing examples of the reality queen’s split personalities on her sexy image.

The entertainment blog was sure to state that after Kim freaked out about the W Magazine pictures ... ‘she chatted with Ryan Seacrest later on his radio show’ and said ‘At the end of the day they are gorgeous photos and I'm glad I did it and I love them.’

Showbiz Tonight asks, should she own her sexy image or did W magazine really overstep?

“Kim Kardashian became famous initially because of a sex tape. And like we were talking about she’s kinda been around before. She’s posed for Playboy.

“I assume that she put together some type of contract and signed something with W Magazine. If this really upsets her she needs to go back and look and see if indeed body parts were shown that she did not agree to.”

'String of Failures' by FBI, DOD in Fort Hood Massacre - Senate Report

_________________________________________________________________________

A 'string of failures' by FBI, Defense in failing to discharge Hasan

From NBC's Ken Strickland

_________________________________________________________________________ .

The Department of Defense and the FBI had enough information about the suspect in the 2009 Fort Hood massacre to have discharged him from the military before he killed 13 DOD employees and wounded 32 others, according to a new bipartisan Senate report.


The report on the Texas army base shooting, authored by Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman and top Republican Susan Collins, says that both agencies were aware of suspected gunman Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan's radicalization to violent Islamist extremism "but failed both to understand and to act on it."


"Although both the public and the private signs of Hasan's radicalization to violent Islamist extremism while on active duty were known to government officials, a string of failures prevented these officials from intervening against him prior to the attack," it says in its executive summary.


The senators say their investigation found "specific and systemic failures" in the government's handling of the case and cited additional concerns about possible broader systemic issues. "The FBI and DoD together failed to recognize and to link the information that they possessed about Hasan" they write.


Hasan's move toward violent Islamist extremism "was on full display to his superiors and colleagues during his military medical training,” according to the report’s findings. One instructor referred to Hasan as "a ticking time bomb."


"Not only was no action taken to discipline or discharge him, but also his Officer Evaluation Reports sanitized his obsession with violent Islamist extremism into praiseworthy research on counterterrorism."


In a stinging charge against the Defense Department's handling of the matter, the report added, "DOD possessed compelling evidence that Hasan embraced views so extreme that it should have disciplined him or discharged him from the military, but DoD failed to take action against him."

Drilling 12000 Feet Beneath the Polar Ice Cap Scientists Hope to Reveal New Forms of Life

_________________________________________________________________________

Scientists Race To Breach Antarctica's Lake Vostok

Saturday, 5 February 2011  

www.redorbit.com

_________________________________________________________________________

Russian scientists are set to pierce through Antarctica’s frozen surface to reveal the secrets of an icebound lake that has been sealed deep there for the past 15 million years.
Alexei Turkeyev, head of the Russian polar Vostok Station, told Reuters by satellite phone that scientists have “only a bit left to go.” His team has been drilling for weeks in a race to reach the lake -- buried 12,000 feet beneath the polar ice cap -- before the end of the brief Antarctic summer.
With the quickly returning onset of winter, scientists will be forced to leave on the last flight out on February 6. “It's minus 40 (Celsius/Fahrenheit) outside,” said Turkeyev. “But whatever, we're working. We're feeling good. There's only 5 meters left until we get to the lake so it'll all be very soon.”
Scientists are hoping the lake will reveal new forms of life and show how life evolved may have evolved in the times before the ice age. The lake could also offer scientists a glimpse of what conditions exist for life in similar extremes on Mars and Jupiter’s moon Europa.
“It's like exploring an alien planet where no one has been before. We don't know what we'll find,” Valery Lukin of Russia's Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI) in St Petersburg, which oversees the expedition, told Reuters.
The discovery of the hidden network of sub-glacial lakes of Antarctica in the 1990s has sparked much enthusiasm among scientists the world over.
Explorers from the US and Britain are following the trail of Russia’s scientists with their own missions to probe other buried lakes, which are among the last of the world’s hidden and unexplored areas.
“It's an extreme environment but it is one that may be habitable. If it is, curiosity drives us to understand what's in it. How is it living? Is it flourishing?,” Martin Siegert, head of the University of Edinburgh's School of Geosciences, who is leading a British expedition to a smaller polar lake, told Reuters reporter Alissa de Carbonnel.
Experts explain that the ice sheet traps in the planet’s geothermal heat and prevents the lakes from freezing. Sediment from the lake might show scientists a window to the past, back millions of years to tropical prehistoric times, said Lukin.
Lake Vostok is the largest, deepest and most isolated of the frozen continent’s 150 sub-glacial lakes. It is overly saturated with oxygen, more so than any other known environment on Earth.
John Priscu of Montana State University, a chief scientist with the U.S. program to explore another Antarctic lake, said Russian scientists are “leading the way with a torch.”

Employers Banned From Monitoring Worker email, Facebook and Internet Use ? Queensland, Australia

_________________________________________________________________________

Employers to be banned from monitoring staff's email, Facebook and internet use

By Renee Viellaris
The Sunday Mail (Qld)
February 06, 201
_________________________________________________________________________ .

 * Workplace privacy guidelines being examined
    * Queensland may act first if no agreement soon
    * No longer a clear line between private lives and work

SNEAKY bosses who spy on personal emails are facing D-Day as state and federal politicians move to protect workers' privacy.

Queensland Attorney-General Cameron Dick said it was time to safeguard workers who unknowingly had their emails read and internet use monitored by unreasonable bosses.

Companies are also monitoring social network sites and using information to sack staff even if they are posting messages at home and don't mention their employer.

Lawmakers say they are determined to stop any such abuse.

The state and federal attorneys-general have been working on a set of workplace privacy guidelines since 2009 but Mr Dick said he would introduce his own code, regulations or law if national progress was not made soon.

"If agreement can't be reached, Queensland will then need to consider how it will proceed to address legitimate workplace privacy concerns," he told The Sunday Mail.

U.S. sues Ameren Missouri claims violated the federal Clean Air Act, Festus power plant

__________________________________________________________________________________

Ameren Missouri Rush Island Power Plant, Festus, MO
__________________________________________________________________________________

U.S. sues Ameren over emissions at Festus power plant

BY JEFFREY TOMICH  www.STLtoday.com Wednesday, January 12, 2011

ST. LOUIS • The Justice Department is suing Ameren Missouri, alleging that emissions at the utility's Rush Island power plant in Festus violate the federal Clean Air Act.
The lawsuit, filed today in U.S. District Court in St. Louis, says Ameren performed multimillion-dollar modifications of the plant without obtaining required permits.
The utility also didn't install "state-of-the-art" pollution controls as the law requires to reduce harmful sulfur dioxide emissions.
The lawsuit says "significant amounts of sulfur dioxide pollution have been, and continue to be, released into the air" as a result of the violations.
"The Rush Island plant ranks among the largest sources of air pollution in Missouri and the nation, emitting tens of thousands of tons of sulfur dioxide each year," the lawsuit says. "These emissions harm public health and the environment, contributing to premature mortality, asthma attacks, acid rain and other adverse effects in downwind communities and natural areas."
Ameren disputes the government's allegations, claiming modifications of the Rush Island plant that are the source of the lawsuit didn't trigger new source review provisions of the Clean Air Act.

Rolling Nationwide Blackouts Caused By Obama EPA Agenda

_________________________________________________________________________

Alex Jones Calls Out Obama for Treason

Infowars.com
February 5, 2011
_________________________________________________________________________

Fury is building over rolling nationwide blackouts triggered by the Obama administration’s deliberate agenda to block the construction of new coal-fired plants, as local energy companies struggle to meet Americans’ power demands amidst some of the coldest weather seen in decades.
.

.

White House Attacks Prison Planet.com Report On Blackouts

Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
February 5, 2011

- Lies about Texas not being affected by draconian EPA rules on greenhouse gases.
- Deception about clean burning coal-fired plants producing “carbon pollution”.
- Spin in denying EPA and Obama administration have publicly stated and openly embarked on mission to destroy coal industry by blocking construction of new power plants.
The White House has publicly responded to the controversy surrounding the Obama administration’s agenda to bankrupt the coal industry and its connection to this week’s blackouts across the country, by attempting to deny the link in a rebuttal that amounts to nothing more than a tissue of lies, deception and spin.
In a blog that appears on the front page of WhiteHouse.gov, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer begins by claiming that the story came from a “questionable” source and is “unquestionably false,” without even naming the source. Frightened that Americans might actually read the source and make their own minds up based on the facts, Pfeiffer fails to provide a link to our original article that was subsequently picked up by the Drudge Report, Fox News and numerous other media outlets.
Pfeiffer then oversimplifies the debate by building a straw man argument based around the premise that “the Obama Administration is somehow responsible for the rolling blackouts in Texas,” before blaming the outages on cold weather.
By framing the argument to make out as if we claimed Obama flipped a switch and the lights went out is completely deceptive. Of course the cold weather has shown that the country is vulnerable to blackouts, but that vulnerability is a direct result of the Obama administration’s stated goal to bankrupt the coal industry and its proven track record, through the enforcement of EPA regulations, of blocking power plants from being built that would be able to handle the extra demand.
Pfeiffer then claims that the blackouts were a result of power plants experiencing “mechanical failures,” completely ignoring the fact that the blackouts were planned and were made necessary because of a lack of supply to meet increased demand. That’s why Texas had to rely on Mexico to meet its power shortfall, an offer that was subsequently suspended.
Pfeiffer then attempts to counter the manifestly provable fact that desperately needed new coal-fired plants are being mothballed under the weight of draconian EPA regulations on CO2 emissions by claiming that Texas isn’t subject to such restrictions. Firstly, Texas supplies power to surrounding states that have been impacted by the new EPA regulations, leaving less energy to meet the demand of those living in the lone star state.
Secondly, despite Texas’ best efforts to fight the new Clean Air Act standards, the EPA has aggressively enforced existing regulations, a process that has both delayed and prevented new plants in Texas from being built, such as the Las Brisas Energy Center, which has been the subject of a near three year battle between the EPA and state authorities.
Indeed, a federal court ruling last month gave the EPA permission to proceed with greenhouse gas regulation in Texas, temporarily superseding Texas’ non-compliance with the new regulations which came into force on January 2. The White House’s claim that EPA regulations are not currently affecting Texas is a complete fabrication.
The wider argument that the EPA is simply trying to implement reasonable measures to prevent “carbon pollution” is also a complete misnomer. Modern day clean burning coal-fired plants go to great lengths to remove all hazardous chemicals before any emissions leave the plant, through the use of sophisticated scrubbers and other techniques, to the point where the only emissions are water vapor and carbon dioxide. Watch the video below for a demonstration of these techniques.
.

.

There can be no doubt whatsoever that the Obama administration has deliberately pursued a policy of bankrupting the coal industry by means of crippling EPA regulations. Candidate Obama himself explicitly stated this objective during a January 2008 interview.
“So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can — it’s just that it will bankrupt them, because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted,” he stated.
.

.
This policy has led not only to new coal plants not being built, but also to existing coal plants being threatened with termination. EPA regulations are forcing power plants out of business across America – leaving the country vulnerable to more enforced blackouts and higher energy prices.
- Back in July 2008, a Superior Court judge in Fulton County blocked the construction of a coal plant in Georgia, citing global warming concerns and the need to limit CO2 emissions.
- In January 2009, the Obama EPA blocked approval for a coal-fired power plant in South Dakota, claiming the state, “didn’t meet requirements under the Clean Air Act in part of its proposed permit for the plant.”
- As Governor of Kansas, Obama’s current Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius slapped a de facto ban on the construction of all new coal-fired plants across the state.
- Last month, Senators in Obama’s home state of Illinois blocked the construction of a clean-burning coal gasification and power generating plant.
- As a result of the EPA’s recent remand of air permits, Shell Oil announced this week that it has “dropped plans to drill in the Arctic waters of the Beaufort Sea this year and will concentrate,” ensuring more shortages and higher prices for Americans.
Last month Dayton Daily News reported that, “The power industry nationwide might have to spend more than $80 billion and retire 45,000 megawatts of coal-fired power plants over several years in adjusting operations to meet current and possible new EPA regulations.”
The shortage of power plants to meet the demands of Texans and other Americans as cold weather grips the country is down to the EPA holding local utility companies hostage and blocking them from building desperately needed new power plants.
Obama’s January greenhouse gas rules restricted the amount of emissions allowable for new power plants, while giving an exemption to General Electric, an intimate financial supporter of his administration.
The Obama administration has crippled US infrastructure and its ability to meet the needs of Americans by declaring war on the coal industry. While smaller independent power plant companies are being squeezed out of existence by EPA rules, transnational giants are busy creating artificial scarcity to jack up prices and eliminate their competition. Indeed, we only have to recall how Enron shut down power plants on false pretenses during the 2001 blackouts in California as a ploy to raise prices to understand how the restriction of energy is used as a political and financial tool of oppression.
Energy prices continue to skyrocket nationwide while the EPA prepares to shut down more plants, ensuring only higher prices in the years to come. The federal government’s siege against independent power companies’ efforts to build coal-fired plants is part of the unfolding globalist agenda to cripple American infrastructure even as China and Mexico build new power plants at ever accelerating speeds.
The fact that the White House is so concerned that this agenda is being exposed that they feel the need to address it with a tissue of lies and deception on the front page of WhiteHouse.gov is a telling indication that the Obama administration is panicking about Americans becoming aware of the move to completely de-industrialize the United States.
