The admins of Reddit have taken note of the community’s opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act, and they’re joining the fight by blacking out the entire site for a day of protest. On January 18th, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST, Reddit will be replaced with a message explaining how SOPA would shut down sites like Reddit, and links Redditors can use to take action against the legislation themselves. EHOWA will be doing the same.
"Imagine" is a song written and performed by the English musician John Lennon. It is the opening track on his album Imagine, released in 1971. Since its release, "Imagine" has been included in a broad array of most-influential and greatest-songs-of-all-time lists. In 1999 BMI named "Imagine" one of the top 100 most-performed songs of the 20th century. "Imagine" ranks number 23 in the year-2000 list of best-selling singles of all-time in the UK. Following the September 11 attacks, the song was included on the 2001 Clear Channel memorandum "do not play" list.
A lawyer argued that U.S. Army Reserve Sergeant Rashad Valmont was dehydrated, exhausted, delirious and near-catatonic when he killed his Master Sergeant. But before you start envisioning a soldier being pushed too far by some sort of torturous training regiment, you should know that Valmont spent the day before the crime on his military computer in a reserve office, was overweight for military duty, had multiple poor performance reviews, and the final straw wasn't commies kidnapping his mentor. Rashad was pushed over the edge by denial of a request for a vacation weekend.
Luck or fortuity is good fortune which occurs beyond one's control, without regard to one's will, intention, or desired result. There are at least two senses people usually mean when they use the term, the prescriptive sense and the descriptive sense. In the prescriptive sense, luck is the supernatural and deterministic concept that there is a force which prescribes that certain events occur very much the way the laws of physics will prescribe that certain events occur. It is the prescriptive sense that people mean when they state that they "do not believe in luck." In the descriptive sense, luck is merely a name we give to events after they occur which we find to be fortuitous. Some encourage the belief in luck as a false idea, but which may produce positive thinking, and alter one's responses for the better. Others, like Jean-Paul Sartre and Sigmund Freud, feel a belief in luck has more to do with a locus of control for events in one's life, and the subsequent escape from personal responsibility. According to this theory, one who ascribes their travails to "bad luck" will be found upon close examination to be living risky lifestyles.
The Shake Weight is clearly the greatest fitness gadget since the Thigh Master. And not only is it an effective training tool (UFC fighter Rashad Evans uses it); it’s also a pretty damn sexy fitness fad. I mean, as soon as you see the infomercial, you think “no way, this can’t be real.” But, oh, it is very real. They really are trying to sell a fitness product that makes it look like you are masturbating when you use it.
