Jealous much? MySpace, Facebook can spark it

Couples' spying on social-networking sites can trigger paranoia

'Jennifer, a 23-year-old teacher, had just moved to Philadelphia for her first job. Chris, meanwhile, stayed behind in Los Angeles for his last year at Loyola Marymount University. They had agreed to cool things off so Chris could cut loose in his final year, but Jennifer says the two talked on the phone every day and still exchanged “I love yous.”

At first, Jennifer visited Chris’ Facebook page just to see his face. Then, other faces started to crop up … of girls. Though she says she’s not normally the jealous type, the photos — and distance — combined to make her paranoid. Soon, Jennifer was checking on her sort-of boyfriend every time she logged on.
Story continues below ↓advertisement

“The potential to start stalking somebody on Facebook is very real,” she says.

(As you might imagine, some people interviewed for this story only wanted their first names used.)

You’ve heard about social-networking spying: Employers do it to job candidates, parents to kids — and couples to each other. Just how many couples use sites like MySpace and Facebook to keep each other in check is difficult to measure. But the fact that terms like “MyStalking” and “Facestalking” have entered the street lexicon speaks to their proliferation.

Couples might be tempted to spy on MySpace and Facebook because it’s legal, anonymous — and easy. But a few mouse clicks could turn a levelheaded person into a "lunatic," as one relationship expert puts it.

“The nature of the forum actually allows jealousy and suspiciousness,” says Jamie Turndorf, a psychologist and creator of

That doesn’t mean that everyone with a MySpace or Facebook profile will snoop on their boyfriends, girlfriends or spouses. Turndorf points out that social-networking sites will be more apt to spark jealously in people particularly prone to it.

“Then, the technology is like the kindling that will ignite your fire,” Turndorf says.

Those in shaky or young relationships are especially vulnerable to spying — and its effects. Tara and Jeff Mooney from Portland, Ore., MyStalked each other when they first met. Both were known to get rowdy at parties before they dated — and reminders of their wild pasts haunted their courtship.

"If anybody commented [on MySpace] from our pasts, we had a conversation," 24-year-old Tara says. "It brought up jealousy issues."

But Tara says the issues forced them to build trust early on — and today they’re not only still together, they’re happily married. What’s more, they’re both still on MySpace, but now, they just laugh off raunchy MySpace comments.

"[MySpace] could pose problems to people who aren’t secure in themselves or their relationships,” she says.

Jennifer had plenty of reasons to be insecure: Her first job was a strain and her comfort, Chris, was slipping away. As such, her spying got worse. What started on Facebook snowballed to an account on MySpace, which she set up just to watch Chris through his ex-girlfriend’s page. Jennifer used what she saw — or thought she saw — in arguments.

By winter break, Chris drew a definitive end to the blurry relationship — but Facebook broke the news to Jennifer. Most social-networking sites gather personal information from users, including their couple status. Theirs had stayed “In a Relationship” since college. But the day Chris decided to change his status, his now-ex-girlfriend got a formal e-mail from Facebook letting her know. Jennifer thinks her spying hastened the end.

"I was acting a little bit crazy," she says.

But for people with legitimate suspicions, social-networking sites can help catch a cheater.

MySpace did just that for Dustin from Issaquah, Wash. His gut told him something was up with his boyfriend, Austin, but he ignored it.

Dropping into his boyfriend’s profile occasionally revealed blatant comments from strangers, racy photos — and a relationship status that didn’t reflect the couple’s exclusivity. Dustin soon found out that Austin had been going out and meeting people behind his back.

In the end, Dustin didn’t need MySpace to nab his straying boyfriend, experts say. High-tech tools might make it easier to spy, but our guts are the best indicators of infidelity, says Turndorf.

“Your intuition is very rarely wrong,” she says. “You don’t need this technology to tell you if this person is dishonest or unfaithful. This is just confirming it.”'

Kristine W wouldn't let me take a shower.

To this day I still kind of resent her for it.

Picture it, Pride '97.

I had been up all week partying, and helping to get the club set up for the big Sunday night.

It's Sunday, 4 in the afternoon.

99 degrees with nary a cloud in the sky.

My skin turning a nice shade of salmon pink.

I had just spent all day at the Festival selling tickets for the show.

I get to the club and can't wait to use the shower in the office [don't ask].

But I can't.

Because Miss W has commandeered the second floor as her 'green room'.

I was all dirty, sweaty and tired, and this sent me over the edge.

I was livid and threw a major hissy fit.

It was like expecting to be granted access to heaven, but then brutally stopped and sent back down to toil away in my circle of hell.

Luckily my boss let me sneak in during her sound-check.

I was much better once shaved and showered, and was able to work the rest of the night.

That is until after we closed down and found out..... we weren't done!

We had to break down Miss W's stage and audio too.

We were there until 8 AM Monday morning.

Talk about a Pride from hell.

Yes, it's been 10 years, and I still resent her.

Today In - 'Closet Case'

I'm thinking this may be a new feature.

Clinton over at ZFS was asking if it was ok to like The Dresden Dolls, and reading the comments, it made me wonder about which musical act/songs people are in the closet for being a fan of.

So first up, for me: Ace of Base - 'Don't Turn Around'.

Ok, so I LOATHED Ace of Base when they came out, mostly for the part that their songs were inane, and played ad nauseum on the radio.

However, now as an adult, whenever I hear the Base, I get instantly transported back to the early 90's, when I was a youngin'.

This song in particular reminds me of when I was living in NYC on $20 a week, and was hating the whole NYC experience.

A big factor in that was it snowed like a blizzard every week, and it was Arctic-like freezing.

Plus, I had really sloppy roommates in my dorm.

I really questioned my decision to go to NYU, and couldn't wait to get home.

All these years later, I look back now at that period with fondness because I had SO LITTLE responsibility back then.

No mortgage, no job....all I had to do was homework and study!

Good times.

Springs school bans tag, citing conflicts

'COLORADO SPRINGS —An elementary school has banned tag on its playground after some children complained they were harassed or chased against their will.

"It causes a lot of conflict on the playground," said Cindy Fesgen, assistant principal of the Discovery Canyon Campus school.

Running games are still allowed as long as students don't chase each other, she said.

Fesgen said two parents complained to her about the ban but most parents and children didn't object.

In 2005, two elementary schools in the nearby Falcon School District did away with tag and similar games in favor of alternatives with less physical contact. School officials said the move encouraged more students to play games and helped reduce playground squabbles.'

Crushed glass to be spread on beaches

'FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Picture a beautiful beach spanning miles of coastline, gently lapped by aqua-colored water - and sprinkled with glass.

Ouch? Think again. It feels just like sand, but with granules that sparkle in the sunlight.

Faced with the constant erosion of Florida's beaches, Broward County officials are exploring using recycled glass - crushed into tiny grains and mixed with regular sand - to help fill gaps.

It's only natural, backers of the idea say, since sand is the main ingredient in glass.

"Basically, what we're doing is taking the material and returning it back to its natural state," said Phil Bresee, Broward's recycling manager.

The county would become the first in the nation to combine disposal of recycled glass with bolstering beach sand reserves, Bresee said.

"You reduce waste stream that goes to our landfills and you generate materials that could be available for our beaches," said Paden Woodruff of the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Sand is a valuable commodity in South Florida, where beach-related business generates more than $1 billion a year for Broward alone.

Sand to replenish eroded beaches is typically dredged from the ocean floor and piped to shore - about 13 million tons of it since 1970 in Broward. That's enough sand to fill the Empire State Building more than 12 times over.

With reef preservation restricting future dredge sites, sand is becoming scarce. And the price is rising as construction and fuel costs rise and dredge operations are pushed farther offshore.

In 2005, dredging brought in about 2.6 million tons of sand at a cost of $45 million. A similar operation in 1991 brought in about 1.3 million tons of sand for just $9 million.

The county would create only 15,600 tons of the glass material each year, not enough to solve its sand shortage, but enough to create a reserve for filling eroded spots before they can worsen, Bresee said.

Most of Broward County's 24 miles of beaches are considered critically eroded, and more than a quarter of Florida's 1,350-mile coastline falls into the same category. About $80 million is spent annually restoring Florida's beaches.

The glass-sand idea grew from the unintentional consequences of an ocean dump site off Northern California near Fort Bragg. Beginning in 1949, garbage - including lots of glass - was dumped over a cliff into the ocean, said Charles Finkl, a marine geologist with Boca Raton-based Coastal Planning and Engineering.

Finkl said that while organic material degraded over the years, the glass broke up and became smooth as it tumbled in the surf. The area is now known locally as Glass Beach. Another dump site in Hawaii produced similar results, Finkl said.

"You talk about glass beach and people have images of sharp glass shards but it's not that way at all," he said.

Recycled glass also has been used for beaches along Lake Hood in New Zealand and on the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao.

It's unclear how much the project would cost Broward County, or if the project is even feasible. The state and county have so far spent about $600,000 just on tests and engineering.

The county tested a small patch of glass sand on a dry patch of beach last year, using sensors to measure effects of heat and moisture. Scientists have also conducted laboratory tests that show organisms and wildlife can thrive in the material just like natural sand, they said. The county is awaiting a permit to test glass sand in the surf zone.

Some people are raising caution flags.

"There's no way that you can predict all the environmental consequences of an action like this," said Dennis Heinemann, a senior scientist with the Ocean Conservancy. "There always will be unforeseen consequences."

One example sits just off shore.

The state and Broward County are spending millions to remove some 700,000 old tires that were placed on the ocean floor off Fort Lauderdale in the 1970s and fastened together to create an artificial reef. The tires came loose, moving around and scouring the ocean floor and wedging against natural reefs, killing coral.'

Et tu, emu?

Wayward emu visits Wal-Mart

Workers corral ‘Myron’ with shopping carts

'WEST BEND, Wis. - Attention, Wal-Mart shoppers: The emu in the parking lot is not for sale.

Employees of a Wal-Mart Supercenter used shopping carts to corral a wayward emu outside the store Monday about 6 a.m., West Bend police said.

A manager fed the emu grapes and apples in an attempt to calm the bird inside the makeshift enclosure.

Richard Takacs, the owner of 3-year-old Myron, speculated the bird had been chased from his nearby farm by a coyote.

Emus can’t fly, but Takacs said he wasn’t surprised when police contacted him from the store, about two miles north of his Meadowbrook Market and Pumpkin Farm.

“They can run 40 miles an hour, so that was just a quick sprint for Myron,” Takacs said.

Two other emus from the farm also bolted from their pen but were found unharmed in a nearby pumpkin field.

Takacs retrieved the apparently frightened Myron from the 24-hour Wal-Mart and placed the bird by itself in a pasture so it could feel safe and relax.

Emus can grow up to six feet tall and weigh as much as 100 pounds.

West Bend is in southeastern Wisconsin, about 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee.'

Over the weekend I woke up with the memory of this bizarre dream I had.

I had been cast to be on a competition reality show, and my agent gave me such short notice, I ended up being late for orientation on the lot.

So I get to the studio for the show, and I find out it is some kind of 'how stylish are you' competition, hosted by Posh Spice.


I was two minutes late and even though she wasn't on set, she had heard I was late, and wanted me taken off the show.

Since being late was not my fault, I became livid when the show's producer told me I was no longer on the show.

I lost my shite.

It was about this time that Posh came out of makeup and I made a bee-line over to her and proceeded to chew her out, yell, and basically berated her for being what is wrong with celebrities and pop culture.

So much so, that she burst into tears, and ran crying from the set.

'Uh oh', I thought.

I don't know why I went off on her, I actually didn't mind her when I saw her little 'Coming to America' show.

And why Posh?

I haven't seen or read anything about her recently so why was she in my psyche?

Back to the dream, once she left I realized what I had just done.

My next thought?

'Holy crap, I hope Becks doesn't come kick my ass!'.

Eventually the producer pulled me aside and told me to go wait in a conference room.

I sat there for a long period until the producer and some other show staffers came in.

I thought they were going to have me escorted off the lot in a zip tie, but nope, something else happened.

They stated that there was no way I could be on Posh's show, for obvious reasons, but that I would be perfect for a different show they were beginning to shoot as well.

It was like a Big Brother-type show.

They wanted me to be the rabble-rouser.

I agreed and was all set.

Cut to later, and the dream now has me on the first day of shooting in the house with all the other hamsters.

It sinks in, 'holy crap, what did I get myself in to?'

I really didn't want to have to be fake, and have to play like I am a hot-head for the show.

[I'm really not as long as I have my meds].

I also realized that being cut off from the outside world, stuck with the same people for three months, would potentially cause me to have a nervous breakdown.

For October issue of The Magazine.

For those of you who are new to Bon Jour, Pee Wee, I write for a column in The Magazine called 'He Said, She Said'.

It's a fun piece where three people; a straight guy, a straight girl, and the gay of the village [that's me] write our opinion on one topic.

October's topic is how to keep a long term relationship interesting:

You want to keep a long term relationship exciting? Date an Aries. Seriously, you will never have to worry about the lack of drama (good and bad). I actually had a potential dating partner turn me down after he found out I was an Aries. He said he had already rode our mental-merry-go round, and didn’t want to take another spin. (His loss).

If you’re not lucky enough to date an Aries, I would say that the way to keep things interesting is to try and prevent going in to a rut in the first place. Part of the benefits of being in a long term relationship is that you and your mate eventually find your groove or rhythm.

But that can be a trap. One day you’ll wake up and realize that some takeout and a night, in has become you’re entire life. So if you make a concerted at the beginning to not get caught up in the monotonous and repetitive, you shouldn’t have to worry about down the road.

If you’re out of luck and things have gone stale, the steadfast rule is variety and surprise can work wonders. And when in doubt, adding a little kink doesn’t hurt either.

Labels: , , ,

Another article for the October issue.

Thinking about getting a personal trainer but don’t know where to start about going to get one? There are a few things you should know before jumping head-long in to a commitment.

First thing is that here in Colorado, one does not need to be licensed or certified to become a practicing personal trainer. It is, however, recommended that you do find someone who is licensed and certified as you do not want to work with someone who, improperly trained, could actually cause serious injury to your precious body.

The American College of Sports Medicine [ASCM] and the National Strength Conditioning Association [NSCA] are both institutions to look for when selecting potential trainers. Certification from these entities does not exactly define how good a trainer is, but it does inform you that they have passed the minimum requirements in order to be at least, certified. They should also know CPR and basic first aid techniques, and be able to furnish proof of such.

It is also not a bad idea to use personal references from friends and family. If a trainer is a practicing professional, they should have no problem giving you their own personal references, if it is a trainer that comes unsolicited.

Next up, you want to find out what kind of fee or rate you are going to pay. You can get a feel for what the average price of a trainer is by calling around to various gyms and getting information on what they charge. This will give you some sense of where to start off when negotiating a contract. Be advised though, that more experienced trainers, as well as such things as if the trainer will be coming to you, rather than you going to a gym or their facility, will also be a factor in determining cost. Some trainers charge by session, but others may charge by the program. Make sure you discuss what your goals are and how the trainer will attempt to attain those goals with you.

Probably the biggest factor when looking for a trainer is personal compatibility. You need to consider such things as personality, your comfort level with this person who is going to be touching you, and just that general sense of whether or not you and the trainer “mesh well”. Having a trainer that you don’t like will kill your motivation, which in the end will make the whole thing a waste of time and money.

Finally, if you really want to see if a trainer is worth their salt, they should have a very clear and defined exercise or training philosophy. If you have a hard time getting motivated, maybe a drill-instructor type is for you. But as mentioned before with the compatibility factor, you want to factor in their philosophy with what you actually think you can handle. Also, don’t judge a book by its cover. Just because that trainer has buns and abs of steel does not mean that their statuesque figure was not the result of plastic surgery, or exercise obsession.

OMG. Denver needs a program, stat!



In the fall of 1999, our two Zipcar founders were sitting in a café, excited about a concept they had seen in Berlin while on vacation. Cars were parked around the city for members to drive by the hour instead of owning their own vehicles. They had a Eureka! moment (or maybe it was more like, "Duh! What an obvious idea.") They put an American spin on it - outfitting the cars with wireless technology, creating a hassle-free reservation system and strategically placing the cars around key cities and neighborhoods. In June of 2000 the first Zipcars were on the road. The masses could now drive cars by the hour or day - on their terms.


Today, tens of thousands of smiling drivers use Zipcars. In many neighborhoods, Zipcars are as ubiquitous as ATMs. Z2B (business) and personal drivers alike are loving the freedom and cost savings a Zipcar brings to their life - many have even achieved transportation nirvana. That's why over 30% of our customers have either sold their car or have stopped their purchasing decision. The revolution is underway, at least in the minds of members who no longer give a second thought to how they will get where they need to go. With a Zipcard in your pocket, a car is only a wireless signal away. Viva la revolution!


Like Zipcar members, Zipcar the company is going places. Plans for regional and national expansion are in the works (Hurray!). And as you might expect, we're investing in even more fun and functional cars that are sure to be a crowd pleaser. The passionate team of Zipsters will also take the member experience to new heights with many enhancements based on the great ideas and feedback of our impassioned members. Like the best of superheroes, Zipcar will go where the trouble is—cities with congestion, parking problems, transportation issues and hard to get to IKEAs (but without the tights and cape). Get on board. Become part of the solution, drive or partner with Zipcar today.'

Sony develops sweet little bio battery

Prototype generates electricity using sugar, enzymes

'TOKYO - Sony has developed an environmentally-friendly prototype battery that runs on sugars and that can generate enough electricity to power a music player and a pair of speakers, the Japanese company said.

The bio battery's casing is made of a vegetable-based plastic.

It measures 1.5 inches along each edge and works by pouring sugar solution into the unit, where enzymes break it down to generate electricity.

Test cells had an output of 50 milliwatts, Sony said.

"Sugar is a naturally occurring energy source produced by plants through photosynthesis," Sony said in a statement.

"It is therefore regenerative, and can be found in most areas of the earth, underlining the potential for sugar-based batteries as an ecologically-friendly energy device of the future."

The company said it aims to produce the batteries for commercial use, without specifying when.

Sony was hit last year by the recall of millions of laptop batteries over fears they could catch fire.'


Define 'fondling'.

So I was thinking about something that was said in that Crack Is Whack post, yesterday.

There's a line about how 'fondling of genitals' is against the law in Atlanta.

So what exactly is 'fondling'?

Say there's a dude who has to make an 'adjustment', or scratch an itch.

Can some prudish old lady tell the cops he was 'fondling' himself and get busted?

That got me to thinking, that statement could actually make a funny t-shirt: Define 'fondling'.

You could make a whole line of t-shirts with this concept.

Define 'stalking'.

Define 'indecent exposure'.

Define 'public urination'.

'Boulder - Joyce Thurmer remembers how frazzled she felt when she and her husband, Rigomar, traveled to Ireland two years ago.

"Rigo" struggled with health problems related to congestive heart failure and emphysema, leaving him too frail to juggle much of the details.

"It was overwhelming for me to be in charge of the tickets and be in charge of myself and be in charge of the luggage and in charge of Rigo," said Joyce.

The couple, both 77, had traveled frequently, often visiting Rigo's family in Germany over the years, but after a while, Joyce said, "I kind of realized ... it would be just too hard to do it on my own."

For that reason, the Thurmers have embraced Trip Nurse, a Boulder-based company that pairs skilled private nurses with people who want to travel but are constrained by health problems.

The company, which carries the slogan "Have Nurse, Will Travel," was co-founded last year by licensed practical nurse Andrew Fallon and registered nurse Suzanne Brandler after both began getting requests from clients to accompany them to weddings, family reunions or vacations.

"It allows the family to enjoy the vacation, and it relieves the patient of feeling like a burden," said Fallon, who has been a nurse for 13 years, including work with Alzheimer's patients. It also "alleviates the pressure on the caregiver."

The service appears to be unique in the nursing industry but is one other providers say they can envision gaining popularity among affluent seniors who don't want to be limited by illnesses.

Clients must pay all travel costs for the nurses, including airfare, lodging and meals, in addition to medical care, which can range from $300 a day to $1,000 a day for 24-hour care.

Trip Nurses will handle such things as arranging with airlines to have portable oxygen aboard planes, scheduling medications, assisting with personal care and navigating airport metal detectors.

"With this population exploding as it is, we're going to see more and more businesses directly catering to this age group," said Morie Smile, spokeswoman for Colorado AARP, a lobbying group for Americans 50 and older with 655,000 members in Colorado.

She said AARP officials have not seen trends in seniors hiring private nurses for travel but support any "service to keep people out there enjoying life."

"It's a brilliant idea," she said.

The use of private nurses is not a new phenomenon.

"It sounds like, in the old- fashioned days, what was called a private-duty nurse," said Amy Barton, an associate professor at the University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center.

"It was kind of in vogue for wealthy families decades ago," she said. "From that, the whole home-care movement kind of was born."'

Now it's bugging me.

A friend of mine asked me why restroom doors alway open in; meaning why they don't swing out so that you can exit without having to touch the germ-laden door handle.

As far as I know, doors swing in due to traffic flow.

You don't want a door swinging out in to a hallway, because it could smack a passer-by in the face.

But then I started wondering if there is actually a building standard that restroom doors swing in, rather than out.

I have seen handicapped and unisex bathrooms that the door swing out, but not regular public restrooms.

Does it have to do with locking the door for privacy?

The mind wonders....or at least mind does.

For a second, I thought 'The Day The Clown Cried' had been released due to this Defamer post.

It's a horrible concept in that Jerry Lewis plays a Nazi clown working at Auschwitz, who entertains the kids by day, and leads 'em to the gas chamber by night.

It has been drawn up in litigation for years and was never released.

Jerry Lewis refuses to talk about it to this day.

Atlanta sez' 'Crack is whack!'

Atlanta considers banning baggy pants

'ATLANTA (AP) - Baggy pants that show boxer shorts or thongs would be illegal under a proposed amendment to Atlanta's indecency laws.

The amendment, sponsored by city councilman C.T. Martin, states that sagging pants are an "epidemic" that is becoming a "major concern" around the country.

"Little children see it and want to adopt it, thinking it's the in thing," Martin said Wednesday. "I don't want young people thinking that half-dressing is the way to go. I want them to think about their future."

The proposed ordinance would also bar women from showing the strap of a thong beneath their pants. They would also be prohibited from wearing jogging bras in public or show a bra strap, said Debbie Seagraves, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia.

The proposed ordinance states that "the indecent exposure of his or her undergarments" would be unlawful in a public place. It would go in the same portion of the city code that outlaws sex in public and the exposure or fondling of genitals.

The penalty would be a fine in an amount to be determined, Martin said.

But Seagraves said any legislation that creates a dress code would not survive a court challenge. She said the law could not be enforced in a nondiscriminatory way because it targets something that came out of the black youth culture.

"This is a racial profiling bill that promotes and establishes a framework for an additional type of racial profiling," Seagraves said.

Martin, who is black, said he plans to hold public hearings and vet the proposal through churches, civil rights groups and neighborhood organizations. The proposal will get its first public airing next Tuesday in the City Council's Public Safety Committee.

"The purpose of the paper is to generate some conversation to see if we can find a solution," Martin said. "It will be like all the discussions we've had around the value of the hip-hop culture. We know there are First Amendment issues ... and some will say I'm just trying to put young black men in jail, but it's going to be fines."

Makeda Johnson, an Atlanta mother of a 14-year-old girl, said she is glad Martin introduced the proposal. She does not want to see a law against clothing, but said she thinks teenagers are sending a message with a way of dressing that is based in jailhouse behavior.

Atlanta would not be the first city to take on sagging pants.

Earlier this year, the town council in Delcambre, La., passed an ordinance that carries a fine of up to $500 or six months in jail for exposing underwear in public. Several other municipalities and parish governments in Louisiana have enacted similar laws in recent months.'

Shrimp I tells 'ya.

Last night I checked out 'God's Warriors' on CNN, which discussed the upsurge in radical fundamentalist Islam.

One of the people they spoke to was this Persian-American woman [born and raised here in the States], and how one day she finally decided to start her own jihad [protest] here by always wearing a hijab.

She talked about how as she got older, she was drawn to how Islam dictates every aspect of her daily life and how she loved that it tells her how to live.

Which cracked me up because, not two seconds later, they show her making dinner, and what was she making?

Shrimp! [at 6:26 in the clip]

If she was truly hardcore Muslim, she wouldn't be eating shrimp because it is not halal.

Totally blew her credibility for me.

As for the rest of the show itself, I was surprised by how biased it actually was.

It was very let's-freak-out-America-with-stories-of-extreme-Islamic fundamentalists.

Christiane Amanpour kind of let me down.

There was actually this show on the Discovery Times channel called 'Root Of 9/11' with Thoms Friedman that was much more informative and honestly gave the Muslim point of view from radical to modern contemporary.

The car that runs on air.

The £5,500 car which runs on air

'The vehicle's new engine, hailed as 'one of the biggest technological advances of the century', uses air compression to turn the pistons without creating any pollution.

Once out on the motorway, the lightweight vehicle can reach 110kph (68mph).

The first car to go into production using the new technology is the MiniCAT.

The £5,500 fibreglass car will cost just £1 to charge up for eight hours of city driving or to cover 200km (124miles).

Moteur Development International, based in Nice in the South of France, spent 14 years developing the engine.

It stores compressed air in tanks and uses it to push the pistons while the air conditioning system uses cold air expelled by the engine. The air tanks can be recharged by using a small, mains-powered compressor.

MDI also envisages users charging their cars at air pumps on petrol station forecourts.

MDI founder, Guy Negre, said: 'Compressed air technology allows for engines that are both non-polluting and economical.

'Unlike electric or hydrogen-powered vehicles, our vehicles are not expensive and do not have a limited driving range.'

India's largest motor company, Tata Motors, has just signed a deal to make MDI's cars.

It is unclear when the first vehicles will be rolled out.'

The problem I see with this...

is what is going to happen when these kids get older and begin looking for jobs.

People are already stupid enough to put stuff like 'interests: binge drinking and '420'' on their MySpace/Facebook/etc. profiles.

Can you imagine having your while life up and available to any Tom, Dick, and Harry on the interwebs?

It scares me how people are so lax when it comes to having an online identity.

Tots getting Internet identity at birth

'NEW YORK (AP) - Besides leaving the hospital with a birth certificate and a clean bill of health, baby Mila Belle Howells got something she won't likely use herself for several years: her very own Internet domain name.

Likewise newborn Bennett Pankow joined his four older siblings in getting his own Internet moniker. In fact, before naming his child, Mark Pankow checked to make sure "" hadn't already been claimed.

"One of the criteria was, if we liked the name, the domain had to be available," Pankow said. It was, and Pankow quickly grabbed Bennett's online identity.

A small but growing number of parents are getting domain names for their young kids, long before they can do more than peck aimlessly at a keyboard.

It's not known exactly how many, but the practice is no longer limited to parents in Web design or information technology.

They worry that the name of choice might not be available by the time their babies become teens or adults, just as someone claimed the ".com" for Britney Spears' 11-month-old son before she could.

The trend hints at the potential importance of domain names in establishing one's future digital identity.

Think of how much a typical teen's online life now revolves around Facebook or News Corp. (NWS)'s MySpace. Imagine if one day the domain could take you directly to those social-networking profiles, blogs, photo albums and more.

"It is the starting point for your online identity," said Warren Adelman, president of registration company Inc., which sells basic domain name packages for about $9 a year. "We do believe the domain name is the foundation upon which all the other Internet services are based."

Hundreds of companies sell domain names with suffixes like ".com,"".org" and ".info," which individuals can then link to personal Web sites and e-mail accounts. Parents simply visit one of those companies' Web sites, search for the name they want and, if no one else has claimed it yet, buy it on the spot with a credit card.

There's no guarantee, though, that domain names will have as central a role in online identity. After all, with search engines getting smarter, Internet users can simply type the name of a person into Google.

"Given the pace of change on the Internet, it strikes me as a pretty impressive leap of faith that we're going to use exactly the same system and the same tools ... 15 to 20 years from today," said Peter Grunwald, whose Grunwald Associates firm specializes in researching kids and technology.

Still, even if the effort is for naught, $9 a year is cheap compared with the cost of diapers and college tuition.

Besides providing an easy-to-remember Web address, the domain name makes possible e-mail addresses without awkward numbers - as in "JohnSmith24", because 23 other John Smiths had beaten your child to Google Inc. (GOOG)'s Gmail service.

Parents not ready to commit or knowledgeable enough on how to buy a domain, though, are at least trying their luck with Microsoft Corp. (MSFT)'s Hotmail or Gmail.

Melissa Coleman of Springfield, Mass., grabbed Hotmail addresses for her two kids. She said the kids' grandparents occasionally send e-greeting cards to those accounts, and she sends thank you notes for gifts in her child's voice.

"I think it's great that it's so loud and that it came with an actual WORKING MICROPHONE ... and I'm not sure what 'annoying' means, but I'm sure it means that Mommy loves it too!!!!," read one message to Grandpa.

She said she logs in at least once every month to keep the accounts active and plans to save all messages for when her children get older.

Tony Howells, a business consultant in Salt Lake City, got a Gmail address along with the domain name for his daughter, believing people would enjoy seeing "an e-mail address pop up for an 8-month-old who is obviously not equipped to use it."

Although some parents have yet to use the domain names they've bought, others are sending visitors to baby photos, blogs and other personal sites. Domain name owners have a variety of options to have their personal sites hosted, typically for free or less than $10 a month. They include baby-geared services like and

Theresa Pinder initially received a domain name as a Christmas gift from her son's godparents and gives it out to friends and family who want updates.

"People are like, 'Wow. He already has his own Web site,'" said Pinder, a physician assistant in Phoenix.

There are downsides to all this, though: An easy-to-remember domain also makes a child easier for strangers to find. Chances are one only needs to know a child's name and add ".com."

Pankow, a database administrator in Phoenix, said that was one concern keeping him from using the domains he bought for his five children, including a 9-year-old daughter.

"I'd want to research and try to figure out how easy it is to find out what school she goes to and where she lives" based on the Web site and domain name, Pankow said.

GoDaddy and many other registration companies offer proxy services that let domain name buyers register anonymously. Otherwise, the person's name, address and other contact information are publicly searchable.

Notwithstanding the privacy concerns, Adelman said domain names for kids have become more and more popular as parents start to get domains for their business or family and realize how difficult it is to find ".com" names not yet claimed.

However, the numbers are still relatively low. Our Baby Homepage, which lets parents set up personal baby pages with photos and greetings, says only 10 percent of its customers have bought their own domains. A similar service, Baby's First Site, considered selling domains for parents but didn't get much interest.

Brian Vannoy, founder of TotSites, said parents might need more lessons on safety measures such as how to password-protect sites. But he believes the hurdles can be overcome once parents who are less-savvy about technology see the benefits.

"It's easy to remember," Vannoy said. "Everybody knows the new baby's name."'

Man accused of shooting dog after it ate off his plate

'JEFFERSON COUNTY – A 35-year-old man from Conifer is facing charges after prosecutors say he shot the family dog after it took food off his plate.

Devin Shane Calhoun was arrested on August 12 at his home by deputies with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.

According to the arrest affidavit, family members saw the dog take food off of Calhoun's plate. When Calhoun found out, he took the dog outside and shot it, according to deputies.

Deputies originally thought the dog, named Lucky, died, but he survived.

Calhoun faces charges of aggravated animal cruelty and prohibited use of a weapon.

He posted $2,000 bond and will be in court on October 18.'

College knowledge relegates more to history

What’s the Berlin Wall? Incoming freshmen grew up after the Cold War

BELOIT, Wis. - The Berlin Wall? What Berlin Wall?

'The class of students entering college this month is the first post-Cold War class, according to the Beloit College Mindset List, a compilation of the events, technology, people and social trends that shaped the incoming crop of freshmen.

To them, it’s always been normal for Russia to have multiple political parties and U.S. rock bands to stop in Moscow on their tours, according to the list released Tuesday by the private school in this city that hugs the Wisconsin-Illinois border.

“In many ways, their world view is less frightening than ours,” said Beloit College humanities professor Tom McBride, who has helped compile the list for a decade. “They grew up during an era of good feelings in the 1990s, when everyone was making a lot of money and there weren’t a lot of wars.”

Despite the threat of terrorism and the war in Iraq, McBride said, the incoming freshmen “have had a comparably tame time of things,” compared to previous generations who fought World War II and in Vietnam and clashed over civil rights. Professors might want to assign texts on darker subjects to give them a wakeup call, he suggested.

For those in the class of 2011 needing to brush up, the Berlin Wall separated West and East Berlin until its destruction in 1989, the year most of these students were born. Its fall symbolically ended the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, a decades-long fight for supremacy between the two superpowers.

“I actually visited the Berlin Wall with my parents when I was in fifth grade,” said Jacob Williams, 18, of Louisville Ky., who is going through freshmen orientation at Beloit this week. “I didn’t know a lot about the history, but I think it was a great piece of architecture.”

Williams and others said the Cold War was such a thing of the past that many students wore T-shirts about communism to be funny.

“You feel that you can joke about it now,” said freshman Jenny Posh, 18, of Menomonee Falls, Wis., who said her only knowledge of the Cold War came from studying it during high school.

At home in a world of money and data

These students witnessed an age of triumphant capitalism when stadiums were named for companies, product placement became ubiquitous in movies and Wal-Mart has always been a bigger retailer than Sears.

And then there’s technology: They use the online encyclopedia Wikipedia for research, grew up telling the world about themselves on MySpace and Facebook and are constantly talking (or texting) on their cell phones.

“I text message all day long,” said Sarah Stanciu, 18, of Chicago, who memorized the keys so well that she sends messages without looking at her phone.

The students have also seen advances for women: Many of their mothers worked full-time, they’re used to women being hired as police chiefs of major cities, and they’ll have about the same number of male and female professors through college.

Katie Couric and Wolf Blitzer have always been on the air, but these students are more likely to get their news from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, the fake newscasters on Comedy Central.

Michael Moore has always been making films, while Rush Limbaugh has been blasting liberals on a daily basis. They never saw Johnny Carson on live television, but they have gotten their fill of Jerry Springer.

The list, which is in its 10th year, has helped the college of 1,200 students market itself. School spokesman Ron Nief said the list “is the most popular back-to-school topic” in higher education. He said everyone from professors to military officials used the list to try to better relate to young people.'
