BEWARE OF THE DEADLY TOXINS IN YOUR HOME - What you don't know about many common household products

President Obama will be speaking at Ted Kennedy's Funeral today. Since dying from brain cancer on Tuesday, Ted Kennedy's death has been treated as the death of Royalty. When one looks at the political legacy within the Kennedy family it is hard not to understand why there is so much attention over Ted Kennedy's Funeral.

Ted Kennedy's Funeral will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Roman Catholic Basilica basilica in a working class section of Boston. After the Ted Kennedy Funeral, Ted Kennedy's Body will be flown to Washington and taken to Arlington National Cemetery, where Ted Kennedy will be buried close to his brothers, former President John F. Kennedy and Senator Robert Kennedy.

Although many members of Congress and other leading U.S. political figures, including former presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, are expected to attend the service, all eyes are on President Obama and his Eulogy Speech for Ted Kennedy's. Presidential aids are all hushed about the contents of Obama's Ted Kennedy Eulogy.

It is expected Obama's Ted Kennedy Eulogy will focus on Obama the impact Kennedy had on American life and politics since Ted Kennedy was first elected in 1962. Obama's Ted Kennedy Eulogy speech will go through some details of Ted Kennedy's 47-year political career which spanned the assassinations of his brothers, President John and Robert Kennedy; the civil rights era; and Apollo moon landings.

Obama and his speech writers definitely had their work cut out in writing the Obama Ted Kennedy Eulogy speech as Obama was only 18 months old when Ted Kennedy first took office.

The date for Michael Jackson's burial has been changed yet again. It seems there was some sort of miscommunication within Michael Jackson's Family regarding the date Michael Jackson would be buried.

Initially, some of Michael Jackson's Family thought it would be nice to bury Michael Jackson on his birthday, which would be August 29th. According to reports, there are some of Michael Jackson's family who fee burying Michael Jackson on his birthday would be "just wrong".

News from the Jackson camp indicates Michael Jackson's burial is now being moved to September 3rd, 2009. The exact reason and who disagreed with burying Michael Jackson on his birthday is unclear. Michael Jackson's final resting place will be at the Holly Terrace in the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California. Earlier reports indicating Michael Jackson would be buried at Neverland Ranch appear to be incorrect.

For those interested in hovering around the Michael Jackson burial, Michael Jackson will be buried at 7PM PST on September 3rd, 2009.

Hunt for Jasmine Fiore Playboy Model's Killer

This is a rather disturbing story, Playboy model Jasmine Fiore was reported missing on Friday by her Ryan Alexander Jenkins. On Saturday morning, Jasmine Fiore's body was found dead. Apparently, Playboy model Jasmine Fiore was choked to death and then stuffed in a suitcase

Jasmine Fiore met her reality show husband at a strip club in Los Angeles. Since police found Jasmine Fiore's body, authorities have been unable to locate Jenkins for questioning with regard to the murder of his Playboy model wife, Jasmine Fiore.

Since the announcement of the murder of Playboy model Jasmine Fiore, there has been a flurry of Internet search activity around the key phrases Jasmine Fiore Playboy Pictures. Although slightly morbid, this is not all to unique. The same thing happened for Internet porn star / college student Emily Sander, AKA ZOEY ZANE

This last month has proven, sex sells, aside from the searches for pictures of recently murdered women, recent internet searches have included Erin Andrews and her now famous peephole video, Heidi Montag's Playboy pictorial, Ashley Greene's Leaked Naked pictures and not to be outdone, Vanessa Hudgens and her Leaked naked pictures.

If there is anything this should teach us, give the male human the most powerful tool in the known world and he will manage to find a way to use it to look boobies. God, I love technology. Sad for the awful death of Jasmine Fiore though. Here are some more pictures of Playboy model Jasmine Fiore to remember her by.

An earthquake measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale has struck central Japan forcing the shut-down of a nuclear power plant, injuring more than 40 people, and delaying bullet trains.

The earthquake in Japan was the second in two days and struck shortly after 5am with the earthquakes epicentre located 05 miles south-west of Tokyo in the Pacific Ocean.

Residents in Tokyo were jolted awake in the early hours as buildings swayed and shelves were shaken bare. Television footage of the Tokyo Earthquake showed shop aisles littered with fallen goods.

At least 43 people were injured as a result of the earthquake in Japan, most of the earthquake related injuries were as a result of objects falling from shelves, thus far, only 2 people are reported in serious condition as a result of injuries sustained during the Tokyo Japan Earthquake on August 11 / 12th.

As many as 9,500 power failures were triggered by the earthquake, while two reactors at the Hamaoka nuclear plant in Shizuoka were shut down as a result of the Earthquake with company officials later reporting “no abnormalities”.

Bullet trains between Tokyo and Osaka were suspended until safety checks cleared the trains as "safe" several hours after the earthquake and approximately 13 aftershocks.

The earthquake coincided with the pending arrival of Tropical Storm Etau which resulted in at least 13 people having died as a result of recent flooding and landslides west of the Tokyo.

This recent Earthquake in Japan took place a mere two days after a magnitude 7.1 earthquake occurred south of Tokyo.

Japan, located in a zone where four tectonic plates meet, is home to around 20 per cent of the world’s annual earthquakes.

7.1 Earthquake Rocks Tokyo and other parts of Japan

A 7.1 earthquake shook Japan this morning, the August 9th 2009 Japan Earthquake struck 200 miles south-southwest of Tokyo Japan at 7:55 PM. The epicenter of the Tokyo Japan Earthquake 188 miles deep, the United States Geological Survey reported.

Although many reports are calling the earthquake in Japan, the Tokyo Earthquake, the August 9th 2009 7.1 Earthquake in Japan was centred in the Izu islands off the eastern coast of Japan.

With the Japan Earthquake originating under water, there was an initial concern of a Tsunami, which would have been tragic as the Eastern Pacific is already being hit hard by Hurricane Felicia which is currently heading straight for Hawaii. The Tsunami threat was quickly lifted as all sources indicate there is no threat of a Tsunami resulting from the Tokyo Japan Earthquake on August 9th, 2009.

The Japan Earthquake did, however, stop a baseball game as well as several Bullet trains as Japanese officials waited for the shaking to stop. Japan is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries, and experts believe Tokyo has a 90 percent chance of being hit by a major earthquake over the next 50 years.

In 1995, a magnitude-7.2 earthquake in the western port city of Kobe killed 6,400 people

Paula Abdul moving to Reality Dance TV - Dancing With The Stars or So You think You Can Dance

Ex American Idol Judge, Paula Abdul, may not be that bad off after leaving her long stint, as the "nice judge" at American Idol. According to reports, ABC's entertainment president Steve McPherson would "love to have" Paula Abdul on Dancing With The Stars.

In addition, So You Think You Can Dance Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe said earlier this week he would love to have Paula Abdul on So You Think You Can Dance and was scheduled to meet with Paula Abdul this weekend to talk about the possibility of Paula Abdul being featured on So You Think You Can Dance.

As for American Idol, they seem to be fairing ok with the loss of Bubblegum Judge Paula Abdul. Recent audition replacements for Paula Abdul's seat on American Idol include ex Pop Tart Victoria Beckham, AKA Posh Spice. Other Paula Abdul sit-in's include Katy Perry who will take Paula Abdul's seat while American Idol producers search for a replacement for Paula Abdul.

According to reports, Paula Abdul, and her new management team, rejected a 30 percent pay raise at American Idol for the unemployment line. Perhaps with these new Dancing With The Stars and So You Think You Can Dance offers popping up, this may not have been a bad business move on the part of the ex pop-tart Paula Abdul.

If Paula Abdul does, in fact, ink a deal with producers of So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing With The Stars (or Both), it is unclear whether Paula Abdul will appear as a Guest, a Dancer, or a Choreographer. Whatever the case, you can be sure she will demand a high pay cheque for the stint.

Helicopter Plane Crash not the First for Liberty Helicopters

When researching this story about a Helicopter and plane coliding in mid-air, I was confused for a few minutes as one report said everyone survived, while the other report said everyone died. Then it became obvious, this mornings' mid air collision

Above - Large Splash as the Helicopter drops into the Hudson River

bewteen a Helicopter operated by Liberty Helicopter Tours and a Piper PA-32 owned by LCA Partnerships of Fort Washington, Pa., was not the first crash for Liberty Helicopters.

The earlier crash was a few years ago on Saturday, July 7th 2007 when a Helicopter operated by the Helicopter tour company made an emergency landing in the Hudson River. As I mentioned, everyone in that accident survived relitavely unscathed.

This, however, was not the case with the Mid-air colission over the Hudson today. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg referred to todays' Helicopter / plane crash in the Hudson River as "not survivable." Bloomberg added "This is not going to have a happy ending, this has changed from a rescue to a recovery mission."

Two bodies have been recovered from the helicopter crash scene and Divers are currently searching the Hudson River, near West 14th Street in Manhattan, for more bodies as well as debris from the Helicopter / plane crash which may have left all 9 passengers and crew dead.

Hurricane Felicia is bearing down hard towards the Hawaiian Islands. As Hurricane Felicia heads towards Tropical Storm Enrique it is gathering speed and strength. As of 8PM PST on August 5th, Hurricane Felicia has been upgraded to a Catagory 4 Hurricane with wind gusts sustained at up to 140 mph.

The American Red Cross in Hawaii is already preparing with warnings and instructions on what to do in the case Hurricane Felicia hits Hawaii this weekend. The key phrase being echoed everywhere is to be prepared for the potential of disaster.


If you evacuate to a hurricane evacuation shelter, there most likely will be no amenities. This means no food service, established sleeping areas or supplies. Hurricane evacuation shelters provide safe shelter to ride out the storm and may be limited to standing room only. It is critical that everyone take the time now to follow these steps to prepare.

1. Assemble a Family Disaster Supplies Kit

When a disaster strikes your community, you may not have access to food, water, electricity and other essential supplies for days, or even weeks. A disaster supplies kit should include nonperishable food and bottled water (one gallon per person per day) for a minimum of five to seven days, nonelectric can opener, a flashlight and extra batteries, a first aid kit, a battery-powered radio, tools, extra clothing and bedding, prescription and nonprescription medications, pet supplies, cash, sanitary supplies, copies of important papers, contact information, maps and other special items for infants, pets, and elderly or disabled family members. This kit should be in an easy-to move container so that it can be used at home or taken with you in the event you must evacuate.

2. Prepare a Personal Evacuation Plan

Disasters often strike quickly and without warning and, when they do, often leave a wake of chaos and emotional trauma. People should determine their actions before a disaster occurs. Planning ahead of time makes it easier to make decisions in a potentially stressful time and helps to know what to do if separated from others in the household. Families can — and do — cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team. They do this by deciding in advance what they will do when their daily routines are disrupted by an emergency. Planning what each person is to do, where each will go, and how they will get there makes a big difference. Identify ahead of time where you could go if you are told to evacuate. Choose two places—one place within your neighborhood and one outside of your neighborhood, maybe a friend's home. If advised to evacuate, do so immediately. In case you have to evacuate to a Red Cross shelter, be sure to bring your family disaster supplies kit along with bedding. Be sure to also make advance preparations for your pets and people with special health needs like children, frail, elderly and people with disabilities.

3. Be Informed

It is important that people learn about what disasters or emergencies may occur where they live, work and play. Learning vital lifesaving skills such as First Aid and CPR/AED can help people take care of their loved ones after a disaster occurs and can equip them to become resources to their communities. We also encourage people who are interested in helping out during a disaster to take free disaster training from the Red Cross and find out how you can help with sheltering, mass feeding, health services, crisis counseling and client casework.

More details are available at www.hawaiiredcross.org. A variety of ready-made disaster kits are available for purchase and a schedule of lifesaving classes are online.

As Hurricane Felicia progresses, stay tuned to the HTBW Hurricane Tracker blog for updates and live webcam views of the effected area's. We have already compiled a number of Hurricane Felicia Web Camera's on the Hawaiian Islands. We will strive to keep you informed as much as technology will allow.



Nothing is constant on the Internet but... Rumours. Yes, there is another one out there. Apparently, a 44-year-old mom named Sara Morrison claims that Dr. Phil McGraw sexually abused and fondled her while she was working for him back in 1984.

In a recent interview, Sara Morrison was reported as saying “Dr. Phil is a monster!” According to reports, Sara Morrison is recently speaking out and divulging details of the Dr. Phil Sexual assault. “I suffered from low self-esteem, and I was depressed, lonely and suicidal, he wanted to see me three or four times a week - as a patient.”

According the Sara Morrison, the Dr. Phil Sexual assault did not occur during the initial therapy. The Dr. Phil Sexual Abuse is reported to have started the next summer when Sara Morrison started to Intern for Dr. Phil. Although she did continue to see Dr. Phil on a professional level, the sexual abuse reportidly occured during her working hours.

“The first day I showed up for work, Phil had his hands all over me, Phil would pull me down to sit in his lap while he talked on the phone to patients, other doctors, even his wife! He’d be running his hand up and down the inside of my thigh all the way up to my panties.”

Of course, this story is all according to the National Enquirer, so it should be take with a whole heap of salt. Of course, it could also be true.

George Sodini - LA Fitness Shooter Diary of a Madman

Only hours after the shooting massacre at the Bridgeville PA LA Fitness, authorities have found an online blog of sorts of the shooter, George Sodini. Reading through the blog of George Sodini, one must shake their head and wonder how this could have been missed. Yes, George Sodini looks like an average white male who has problems getting layed.

In his blog diary, which started in December of 2008, George Sodini outlines his discontent with life the universe and everything. Particularly his inability to attract women and his "constant rejection"
In his December 2008 entry, George Sodini indicates his frustration with single life.

I actually look good. I dress good, am clean-shaven, bathe, touch of cologne - yet 30 million women rejected me - over an 18 or 25-year period. That is how I see it. Thirty million is my rough guesstimate of how many desirable single women there are. A man needs a woman for confidence. He gets a boost on the job, career, with other men, and everywhere else when he knows inside he has someone to spend the night with and who is also a friend. This type of life I see is a closed world with me specifically and totally excluded. Every other guy does this successfully to a degree. Flying solo for many years is a destroyer.

In later blog diary posts, George Sodini started to point out his anger and discontent towards family and other acquaintances, speaking about his father, George Sodini said "He was just a useless sperm doner." feeling, I guess, that he should have been more of a role model or support system.

In his blog/diary George Sodini later went on to lament about his mother, brother, sister and other family members. He referred to his mother as a controlling, his brother as a bully and his sister a victim who exercises too much control over her children.

According to George Sodini's blog / diary postings, the original LA Fitness shooting was to take place at 8:15 on January 6th, 2009, except he changed his mind at the last minute. Perhaps the one indication of any sanity in his mind. Unfortunately for his victims, George Sodini continued to fantasize about his plan.

Throughout his blog / diary, George Sodini goes through rants about life the universe and everything, blaming everyone for his misfortunes and not taking and responsibility for his shortfalls. In a June blog entry, George Sodini went on to say

I was reading several posts on different forums and it seems many teenage girls have sex frequently. One 16 year old does it usually three times a day with her boyfriend. So, err, after a month of that, this little hoe has had more sex than ME in my LIFE, and I am 48. One more reason. Thanks for nada, bitches! Bye.

Even after a promotion and raise in July of 2009, George Sodini was still not happy with his life.

Everything still sucks. But I got a promotion and a raise, even in this shitty Obama ecomomy. No more grunt programming. Go figure! New boss is great. He tactfully says when you did something wrong or complements on good things. Never confused with him. But that is NOT what I want in life.

In his final blog / diary entry on August 3, 2009, George Sodini took the day off work to "practice". Indicating is displeasure over his one moment of sanity in January, George Sodini said he needed to remain focused and that the "positive and upbeat" nature of his neighbour was a distraction.

I took off today, Monday, and tomorrow to practice my routine and make sure it is well polished. I need to work out every detail, there is only one shot. Also I need to be completely immersed into something before I can be successful. I haven't had a drink since Friday at about 2:30. Total effort needed. Tomorrow is the big day.

Unfortunately I talked to my neighbor today, who is very positive and upbeat. I need to remain focused and absorbed COMPLETELY. Last time I tried this, in January, I chickened out. Lets see how this new approach works.

Maybe soon, I will see God and Jesus. At least that is what I was told. Eternal life does NOT depend on works. If it did, we will all be in hell. Christ paid for EVERY sin, so how can I or you be judged BY GOD for a sin when the penalty was ALREADY paid. People judge but that does not matter. I was reading the Bible and The Integrity of God beginning yesterday, because soon I will see them.

I will try not to add anymore entries because this computer clicking distracts me.

The rest of this story continued with the mourning of the families of the lost souls. Innocent people caught in the psychosis of a madman with a lack of concern for anyone but himself. George Sodini may blame all those in his life for his actions, as evident in his online ramblings, however he only has himself to blame for his life and the direction it took.

Thousands of people have been placed in quarantine in north-western China after two people died of pneumonic plague. At this time, the China Outbreak of Pneumonic Plague is limited to 10 people who are apparently relatives of those who died of Pneumonic Plague.

The Chinese government has not yet said when the man died but it has sealed off the town where the outbreak occurred. According to reports, there are enough supplies to feed the 10,000 or so people who live in the town of Ziketan, near Xinghai in Qinghai province, during the quarantine period.

Pneumonic plague is a virulent form Pneumonia. It can spread from person to person, or from animals to people. Initial symptoms of Pneumonic plague include fever, headache and shortness of breath. To reduce the chances of death as a result of Pneumonic plague, anyone infected with Pneumonic plague must receive treatment within 24 hours of when the first symptoms appear.

This Pneumonic plague outbreak in China comes just months after a worldwide outbreak of H1N1 Swine flu which originated from China and has also led to thousands of people being quarantined.

Early reports from the W.H.O. indicate this outbreak of pneumonic plague in China is unlikely to cause the mass fatalities associated with historical outbreaks.

While Pneumonic plague can kill 60 percent of its victims if left unchecked, early diagnosis and treatment of Pneumonic plague with generic antibiotics such as streptomycin and tetracycline cuts plague patients’ mortality rate to less than 15 percent. Pneumonic plague is the most serious and least common of three forms of the infectious disease. Plague is caused by the Yersinia pestis bacteria, found mainly in rodents, particularly rats, and in the fleas that feed on them.

Pneumonic plague, on the other hand, occurs when the bacteria infect the lungs, causing symptoms including fever, headache and weakness, and may lead to potentially fatal cases of pneumonia. In almost all cases, only the pneumonic form of plague can be passed from person to person.

Vivian Tan - spokeswoman for the WHO in China said “These things do happen sporadically in different countries. It’s not something we’re very worried about, but we are keeping an eye on it.”

Pneumonic Plague is not to be confused with the Black Plague which kill Millions. The Black Plague was initially spread by rats. This does not seem to be the case with this outbreak of Pneumonic Plague in China, although the W.H.O. is not taking any chances.
