Maybe I need to up my dosage.

[Clip contains nudity]

I don't know if it's because I'm sick with a horrible cold, or what, but I'm totally depressed.

I know part of it is an incident that took place recently, but there's not much I can do about that now.

But that alone doesn't explain why I just want go home put on some Air Supply and take a warm bath [with or without razorblades?].


This year pretty much sucked in retrospect and I'm glad it's over.

Anyboo, this is one of my fave scenes from 'Rules Of Attraction'.

So haunting that every time this song comes on, I totally envision this.

I am going to take some time off, so I will be posting once I get my head all sorted out.

HSN settles over pressure cookers

'WASHINGTON — The Home Shopping Network has agreed to pay the government an $875,000 civil settlement after the government accused the company of failing to promptly warn consumers about dangerous pressure cookers blamed for burning consumers at least 37 times.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday that the payment was part of a settlement reached with HSN LP and its partner companies over defects in Welbilt electronic pressure cookers sold between September 2001 and November 2002. HSN LP is the network's corporate name.

The agreement headed off a lawsuit the commission and the Justice Department were prepared to file against HSN, accusing it of failing to tell the commission — as required by law — about 25 reports the company allegedly received of defects in the pressure cooker.'

This story was funny because the first thing I thought of were the types of bears in the photo.

Bears barely a problem in one Colorado town

'VAIL (AP) - Some western Colorado communities were besieged this year by hungry bears when a freeze and then drought wiped out berries and acorns - but not Vail.

Vail officers didn't field any reports of bears raiding garbage bins or breaking into houses. Down the road in Aspen, state wildlife officers killed 13 bears that threatened people or were repeat offenders.

Statewide, the Colorado Division of Wildlife killed a record 59 bears. The previous record was 55 bears in 2002.

Drought and development in bear habitat caused problems in other parts of the West, including Nevada and California.

The Colorado Division of Wildlife credits strict enforcement of an ordinance requiring bear-resistant trash containers and a partially viable berry crop for the lack of the problems in Vail.

"The people in Vail definitely got the message that residents can do something to prevent problems with bears," Wildlife Division spokesman Randy Hampton told The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction.

Hampton said the agency uses Vail as a positive example for other towns. He said Aspen and Pitkin County beefed up laws and enforcement in late summer.

Vail officials started strengthening their ordinances last spring to avoid the problems of the previous season: bears breaking into homes and officers being forced to euthanize two bears. Homes, including multifamily complexes, businesses and construction sites, are required to use wildlife- resistant containers or place cans in an approved enclosure.

The police department trains its officers in bear behavior. Officers shoot paintball-like pellets packed with pepper to chase away bears.

A community awareness campaign led to a "significant amount of voluntary compliance," Police Chief Dwight Henninger said.

Stepped-up enforcement didn't hurt, either. Through December, 432 warnings and 86 summonses were issued, Henninger said. In 2006, police issued 135 warnings and 40 summonses.

Some bears still wandered into neighborhoods, mostly at night, to look for food when fewer people were around, Henninger said.

The Division of Wildlife often tags and relocates bears that cause trouble, although officers will immediately kill one that attacks people or is especially aggressive. Bears caught a second time usually are killed.'

Family sues in man's mistaken death case

Medical officials inadequately checked man's vital signs, family claims

'RALEIGH, N.C. - The family of a man who was hit by a car and mistakenly declared dead has sued over the mistake, claiming it led to injuries from which he might not recover.

Larry Green was walking across a highway in 2005 when he was hit by a car. He was put into a body bag and sent to the morgue, and the medical examiner did not notice Green was still alive until roughly 2 1/2 hours after the accident.

Green, who now lives in a nursing home in North Carolina, was hospitalized for two months with a severe head injury, broken leg and other injuries. He began some limited speaking five months after the accident.

In the lawsuit filed this month, the family claims medical officials inadequately checked his vital signs after the accident. It also alleges the medical examiner disregarded signs that Green was alive.

The examiner, J.B. Perdue, said it was not his job to determine whether Green was dead or alive.

"The medical examiner is called after death," Perdue said. "Someone else pronounced his death, and the medical examiner is called to investigate the cause and manner of that death. He does not pronounce people dead."

William Hill, an attorney representing Franklin County, did not return calls seeking comment.'

Honey making a medical comeback

Potent type used as antibiotic amid fears of drug-resistant superbugs

'TRENTON, New Jersey - Amid growing concern over drug-resistant superbugs and nonhealing wounds that endanger diabetes patients, nature's original antibiotic — honey — is making a comeback.

More than 4,000 years after Egyptians began applying honey to wounds, Derma Sciences Inc., a New Jersey company that makes medicated and other advanced wound care products, began selling the first honey-based dressing this fall after it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Called Medihoney, it is made from a highly absorbent seaweed-based material, saturated with manuka honey, a particularly potent type that experts say kills germs and speeds healing. Also called Leptospermum honey, manuka honey comes from hives of bees that collect nectar from manuka and jelly bushes in Australia and New Zealand.

Derma Sciences now sells two Medihoney dressings to hospitals, clinics and doctors in North and South America under a deal with supplier Comvita LP of New Zealand. Derma Sciences hopes to have its dressings in U.S. drug stores in the next six months, followed by adhesive strips.

Comvita, which controls about 75 percent of the world's manuka honey supply, sells similar products under its own name in Australia, New Zealand and Europe, where such products have been popular for over a decade.

"The reason that Medihoney is so exciting is that antibiotics are becoming ineffective at fighting pathogens," said Derma Sciences CEO Ed Quilty.

Another big advantage, he said, is that the dressings' germ-fighting and fluid-absorbing effects last up to a week, making them convenient for patients being cared for at outpatient clinics or by visiting nurses. They also reduce inflammation and can eliminate the foul odors of infected wounds.

Since receiving FDA approval, Medihoney has brought in sales of $150,000 in 10 weeks and Quilty plans to nearly double his 15-person sales force in 2008 thanks to the two new Medihoney products.

Honey dressings and gels, as well as tubes of manuka honey, have been gaining in popularity overseas, fueled by scientific reports on their medical benefits and occasional news accounts of the dramatic recovery of a patient with a longtime wound that suddenly healed.

Regular honey can have mild medicinal benefits. A study published Dec. 3 showed it helps to calm children's coughs so they can sleep. But manuka honey is far more potent, research shows.

Dr. Robert Frykberg, chief of podiatry at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Phoenix, said the Medihoney product has worked on about half the patients with diabetic foot ulcers who have used it.

He said the Medihoney dressing can also prevent the dangerous drug-resistant staph infection known as MRSA from infecting open wounds.

"It's been used on wounds where nothing else will work," said biochemist Peter Molan, a professor at the University of Waikato in New Zealand who has researched honey and other natural antibiotics for 25 years.'

Let's Build Something Together, Indeed

Man finds birth mom 22 years later — at work

Michigan man learns co-worker was woman who gave him up for adoption

'As a delivery driver at the Lowe’s in Grand Rapids, Mich., Steve Flaig knew that you could find a lot of things you need in the superstore, but he never dreamed that one of them would be his birth mother.

But that’s where Flaig’s four-year search for his mother ended, not in aisle seven, but in the office, where the co-worker he knew casually in passing as Chris turned out to be the woman who gave him up for adoption after his birth 22 years ago.

“Passing each other, it was just, ‘Hey,’ ” Christine Tallady, 45, told TODAY co-host Meredith Vieira on Thursday. “I didn’t really have a lot of contact with him. As a delivery person, he’d get his deliveries, leave the store, do his deliveries, come back and then pretty much leave. I was based in the store, so I stayed in the office.”

When Flaig turned 18, and with the blessing and encouragement of his adoptive parents, he began searching for his birth mother. He started at D.A. Blodgett for Children, the Grand Rapids agency that had handled his adoption. Tallady had left her records open, listing her name in the hope that the child she gave birth to as a young single woman would contact her someday.

It wasn’t an intense search, but more of an off-and-on thing on the Internet. After more than three years without success, he went back to the agency and found that the reason he couldn’t find his mother was because he was misspelling her last name. He put the proper spelling in a search engine and up popped a Christine Tallady living in Grand Rapids at an address not far from his own home and near the Lowe’s where he worked.

“I thought, wow, that’s really close to here, where I work,” he told NBC News. “I bet I’ve seen her in the store.”

‘You’ve got to be kidding me’

Two months ago, he learned that she didn’t just come in the store, she worked there. But now that he was so close to the person he'd been seeking for so many years, he didn’t know how to approach her.

“It’s a bizarre situation, and I was not 100 percent sure as to what to do about it, how to bring it to her attention and how to break the news to her,” he told Vieira. “There’s always that fear that it could potentially go wrong or something wouldn’t go right. So I had to be 100 percent sure before I went ahead with it.”

Finally, he went back to the adoption agency and asked for advice. An employee there offered to call Tallady and break the news to her for Flaig. She told Tallady only her son’s first name and that he worked in the store with her.

“I just sat down and just started crying,” she said. “I said, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’ ”

She started running down the list of Steves who worked in the store, eliminating them by age until she settled on the nice young man who drove a delivery truck. Once she verified his birthday, she knew for certain who he was.

That was on Wednesday, Dec. 12. Flaig called her that afternoon and they agreed to meet for lunch at a nearby restaurant for a proper introduction.'

I had a dream the other night that I was at a dinner party where Ryan Gosling was in attendance.

I was stoked because I wanted to talk to him about 'Half Nelson' and what the ending could mean.

Well that opened a whole can of worms, when I let it slip that even though I thought the movie was ok, I didn't think it was THAT spectacular.

That caused a big heated discussion between us and the rest of the dinner party pretty much quietly ate as we spat.

Eventually we agreed to disagree.

He thought I was saying his performance wasn't Oscar worthy, which I didn't.

I just thought it ended with a whimper.

As the night wore on we actually began to get along.

We exchanged numbers and later that week he invited me on set of his current project to observe.

What's weird is I know what sparked this dream.

I watched a A&E Biography on Britney, and it mentioned that Ryan was on the Mickey Mouse Club cast with her, Justin, and Christina.

Sucks to be a flea: Vacuums destroy itchy bugs

Study shows housekeeper's tool takes fleas on a one-way whirlwind trip

'Many a housekeeper has long wondered if vacuuming is sufficient to get rid of fleas. Finally, a study shows vacuuming is indeed an effective weapon.

Experiments conducted by Ohio State University researchers on the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis)—the most common type of flea plaguing companion animals, such as dogs and cats, and humans—showed that vacuuming killed fleas in all stages of life.

Fleas have multiple life stages: Adults suck the blood of their host and females lay eggs on them. The eggs roll off onto the floor, furniture or pet bedding and hatch two to 14 days later. The insects go through three larval stages, the last of which spins into a cocoon to protect the pupa stage. New adults typically emerge within a week or two.

The OSU study, partially funded by the Royal Appliance Manufacturing Co. and detailed in a recent issue of the journal Entomologica Experimentalis et Applicata, involved vacuuming up groups of 100 adult fleas at a time, as well as groups of 50 pupae and 50 larvae, from a tightly woven kitchen-type carpet.

Six tests on the adult fleas killed an average of 96 percent of adult fleas, and the three tests of pupae and one test of larvae resulted in the deaths of all the fleas.

Study team member Glen Needham and his colleagues are researching non-toxic ways to kill insects, because though bug bombs have sent fleas on the run, the fleas could develop resistance to these chemicals.

Needham thinks that the brushes, fans and powerful air currents of vacuum cleaners are what's responsible for killing the itchy insects. Needham and his colleagues have suggested that the vacuum brushes wear away the cuticle, a waxy outer layer on fleas and most insects that holds water in and keeps them hydrated. Without this protective layer, the adults, larvae and pupae probably dry up and die, Needham said.

"We didn't do a post-mortem, so we don't know for sure," Needham added. "But it appears that the physical abuse they took caused them to perish."

Though the study used only one model of upright vacuum, Needham says that most vacuums will probably wipe out the insects.

"No matter what vacuum a flea gets sucked into, it's probably a one-way trip," he said.'

Navy saves teen whose appendix burst on cruise

Girl fell ill off the coast of Baja California, was helicoptered to military ship

'SAN DIEGO - A teenager whose appendix ruptured at sea, hundreds of miles from help, got safely to shore Tuesday after an unusual rescue in which the Navy airlifted her from a cruise ship for emergency surgery.

Laura Montero, 14, fell ill aboard the Dawn Princess cruise ship off the coast of Baja California. The Bahamian-registered ship sent out a distress call Friday that was answered by the USS Ronald Reagan, which was on training maneuvers about 500 miles away.

The Reagan, which carries as many as 6,000 crew members and costs about $2.5 million a day to operate while under way, returned Tuesday morning, its scheduled return from the training tour.'Navy saves teen whose appendix burst on cruise

“Where the ship was, where the land was and the fact that the Ronald Reagan had (a surgical facility) on board were all factors that came into play,” said Julie Benson. “The option is to go to the nearest medical facility that can treat the patient.”

The Dawn Princess returned to its home port of San Diego over the weekend from its regular weeklong run along the Baja California coast to the resorts of Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
