September 11 Attacks (9/11)
Laws that have broad bi-partisan support come few and far between, but the GI Bill that was passed in 1944 is one of those few bills that will bring together both the most ardently conservative and die hard liberal because it was a law designed to thank those who made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our country.
Since I am currently living on the Big Island of Hawaii, in Hilo about a mile from bay front, I thought I would put my time to use (while hunkered down) blogging about a first hand account with Hurricane's Iselle and Julio. I plan to do this blog like an updating journal entry.
Folklore has said the moon cycles have a large role in humans and animals sleep methods and quality. With the next full moon approaching July 12th, I wonder how many people this will actually affect. There have been some very interesting studies done before, during, and just after full moon cycles that show this folklore to actually hold great weight.
If you have been keeping up with the news aggregate catch-all site 'Google News' lately, you will notice an uptick in what's "becoming the norm" as President Obama recently put it: school shootings. I know I've noticed it. And it got me wondering just how many school shootings have taken place lately? Feels more and more like an everyday, or at least every week occurrence lately.
A 4.4 magnitude earthquake struck near Los Angeles early Monday morning, waking a lot of people up earlier than usual but not causing any immediate reports of major damages or injuries. While millions of Californians are breathing a collective sigh of relief, it is only a matter of time before the next big earthquake hits California.
The Australian Open for tennis has happened every year since it's inception back in 1905. And it's just like any other sporting event in the sense that headlines typically read very generic: So and so wins big. Upset in the making. Underdog prevails! The streak continues.. and so on and so forth. But this year, that's not really where the story was at.
Donald Trump boasted that his Trump Tower complex was the newest tallest in New York City the same day terrorists struck the twin towers on 9/11/2011. Trump responded to a question about the attack by saying "40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest, and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second-tallest. And now it’s the tallest."
North Jersey Media Group recently sued Sarah Palin and her political action committee for using a photograph from 9/11 that the company has exclusive rights to. The iconic photograph shows three firefighters raising the American flag on top of the ruins of the World Trade Center. The company released a statement that they asked both Palin and her PAC to remove the photograph before they decided to file suit.
