          Have you heard about this? He was on Queen Latifah show yesterday…
          http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2611751/Star-Trek-legend-William-Shatners-one-man-set-hit-cinemas.html

          He has appeared on the silver screen seven times in his most famous role as Captain Kirk.
          And now William Shatner is getting set to boldly go where he has gone before when his one-man show hits cinemas this week – for one night only.
          The Star Trek legend’s Shatner’s World … We Just Live in It will be shown at more than 700 theatres around the USA on Thursday.It will feature a professionally recorded version of his acclaimed Broadway show, which was noted for its overabundance on hilarious anecdotes from the Canadian actor.
          The 83-year-old will be making the most of his big night, as he will be taking in his show with an audience at a Los Angeles movie theatre.
          He told the New York Daily News: ‘It’s a one-night-only event, [so] people — for the price of a movie ticket — can see a Broadway show.’
          He wants to explain to audiences ‘this idea, this concept that life is precious and it needs to be embraced with both arms and smothered by you, because it’s over so quickly.
          ‘I talk about the death of Captain Kirk, which leads me into the mystery of death and what is grief.

      Bob, how can Putin hope to get away with abducting the monitors? This is an egregious act of war that can’t end well for anyone, least of all Russia. This is way beyond Ukraine now–he provoking all of Europe and I’m starting to believe there isn’t anything he won’t do at this point. His descent into insanity seems to be spiraling further out of control by the day. Doesn’t anybody in Russia see this?

      • April 25, 2014 at 6:52 pm

        “Doesn’t anybody in Russia see this?”

        I think quite a few folk in Russia see it, Jackie, including all the oligarchs. The issue is does a challenge to Putin emerge.

        Agree with you, also – his megalomania is totally out of control, and that is very dangerous for all of humanity.

    First the South Carolina Bar Association and now the American Bar Association is criticizing a Republican Governors Association ad that targets state Sen. Vincent Sheheen, the presumptive Democratic nominee for governor in South Carolina, for his work as a criminal defense attorney.

    In a letter to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who is chairman of the Republican Governors Association, the lawyers group argues that the ad, which attacks Sheheen for representing violent criminals, sends the wrong message about defense attorneys. Sheheen is challenging Republican Gov. Nikki Haley. The ABA stops short of asking Christie to pull the ad.

    Oh boy ….

    “Exclusive: Putin Halts All Talks With White House
    As new U.S. sanctions against Russia loom, the Kremlin has shut down—at least for now—intensive high level communications between top U.S. and Russian officials.

    Since the invasion of Crimea, President Vladimir Putin and President Barack Obama have had regular phone calls in an often half-hearted attempt to deescalate the ongoing crisis inside Ukraine. But as the U.S. and EU prepare to unveil new sanctions against Russia, Putin has decided the interactions should stop. The Kremlin has ended high-level contact with the Obama administration, according to diplomatic officials and sources close to the Russian leadership. The move signals an end to the diplomacy, for now.”

    “Despite the agreement between Ukraine and Russia, Russian secret services have long lead subversive and intelligence activities on the territory of Ukraine. This statement was made by to the Channel 5 by the acting Deputy Head of Presidential Administration of Ukraine Andriy Senchenko.

    “When we talk about Russian presence… We have 25 employees of Russian Central Intelligence in our custody alone. Moreover, there are people there who lived in Ukraine under false identities for 2 to 3 years, and against the agreement between Ukraine and Russian Federation, were conducting subversive and intelligence activities on the Ukrainian territory,” he said, responding to Russian State Duma MP Ilya Ponomarev that was present in the studio, who alone voted against the secession of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia.

    Senchenko believes that the main task of the Russian agents embedded in Ukraine and their local wards was to disrupt the presidential elections and undermine the Ukrainian state.

    “For Putin, the number one task is to disrupt the stabilization process in Ukraine, to disrupt presidential elections, it is obvious… and the only tool for achieving this are those separatists who disrupt peace in Donbas first of all and in our country in whole; they are instrumentary for the destabilization of the political situation in the country for a long time ahead,” he explained.”

    I know EXACTLY what Knoller’s agenda is here. He started focusing on these networks relatively recently (say in the last 4- 6 mos or so). Prior to this, he only reported on the three broadcast networks (CBS, ABC and NBC). But obviously he has a new-found hobby while trying to conceal his disgusting motives…But we see thru Knoller’s B.S. quite well.

      The real conversation
      CNN – simulating something
      FOX – attacking PBO because he hasn’t sent 3 million young Americans to die in the Crimea
      MSNBC – telling the truth about the GOP

    Heading out so last post for a while.
    If you haven’t heard, the NY States attorney is on the case of the Federal money meant for a commuter tunnel between NY and NJ.
    Christie vetoed the tunnel and is using the money to fix a brdge in NJ.

    It is not possible that Cuomo wasn’t in on this.
    We all knew what Christie vetoed.
    Both Governors had to have approved the transfer of funds to a NJ project. They are both partners in the Port Authority that provided the funds.

    Not a peep from the Cuomo Camp on anything Christie or Bridgegate related.

    Very interesting tosay the least.

      I think Andrew has 2016 aspirations. He’ll try to stay as far away from Christie as he can, but – I agree – methinks he may very well be implicated. If he’s indeed done something he shouldn’t (like Christie), you never really cover all the tracks.

      Popcorn time.

        Cuomo will not get the NY Dems support.
        Mistake in my last post. It is the SEC and the Manhattan DA investigating this specific mess.

          Good about the lack of support from the NY Dems. And I hope the investigation continues and isn’t squashed.

      • April 25, 2014 at 7:13 pm

        Everything I read about Cuomo is irritating. He will never be POTUS.

          I listened to his State of the State speech once. While Mario had that great speaking voice, Andrew’s voice is totally obnoxious. I’m from NJ so it wasn’t the NY accent – it was the “full of himself” tone.

          Plus, it’s clear that whatever path he’s trying to take NY on, is totally geared toward his personal ambitions … not to benefit the people of NY. So, no thanks, Andrew. You can plan for ’16, but you’ll never be POTUS. Just ask meta!

          Did you see that Chris Cuomo was tweeting me back early, early this morning DURING his show? It was aggressive and nasty, enough to make me think it wasn’t a staffer. And rightwingers were agreeing with him – all I needed to know. What creeps the sons have become.

          And I haven’t liked Mario for quite some time because of his lackluster, if any, support for the President, early on … think he was a Clintonista, but can’t recall exactly. None of them actually mean enough to me to go on like this about any of them, so I shall stop.

    Tech climate scientist on Time’s 100 influential people list
    (Katharine Hayhoe ‘honored to be included’ in list) Posted: April 24, 2014 – 11:17am | Updated: April 25, 2014 – 12:19am

    By BLAKE URSCH

    Beyonce may be on the cover, but Katharine Hayhoe is not to be denied.

    The climate scientist from Texas Tech has been named to the TIME 100, Time Magazine’s list of influential people for 2014. The issue hits newsstands on Friday, and the full list is available online at time.com/time100.

    “I am honored to be included in the TIME 100 list,” Hayhoe said in a news release. “Even more so, I am encouraged to see climate change emerging as an urgent concern. With 97 percent of climate scientists agreeing that climate change is happening due to the choices people make every day, I am a spokesperson with one principal goal — to bring public awareness to the simple truth that the scientific debate is over, and now it’s time for all of us to take action.”

    Hayhoe said she feels she was chosen to represent a group that some may find paradoxical: Christian climate scientists.

    Exclusive: U.S. expanding corporate foreign bribery probes to include hiring

    U.S. government agencies that have been probing banks’ hiring of children of powerful Chinese officials are expanding existing investigations in other industries across Asia to include hiring practices, four people familiar with the matter said.

    The Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission have been asking global companies in a range of industries including oil and gas, telecommunications and consumer products for information about their hiring practices to determine if they could amount to bribery, these people said.

    On Wednesday, mobile chipmaker Qualcomm Inc said it could face a civil action from U.S. authorities over alleged bribery of officials associated with state-owned companies in China. It also said it found instances in which “special hiring consideration” was given to people associated with state-owned companies or agencies in China.

    Qualcomm declined to comment on Friday. The Justice Department and SEC declined to comment on whether they have expanded their probes.

    Some of the new inquiries have zeroed in on hires in China, South Korea and southeast Asia, including Singapore, two of the people familiar with the probes said.
