The Price Of Politics and Zuck's Disrupting Secret at 134 Degrees


George Noory just said "A report today says that the hottest place in the world is Death Valley with a high recorded at 134 degrees.......That's Hot"
Stupid Stuff George Noory Says - 


Driving back from the Valley tonight it was 92 degrees at 8:15pm. Hotter weather coming tomorrow.

After all this crap happening in Cairo and Libya it's really angered people. I heard Mark Steyn on Hugh Hewitt's show. He came on and for over 5 minutes he railed against the president. I have never heard him that angry. I also heard that Sean Hannity on his TV show last night went off on some woman. This thing with Obama going to Vegas has just unhinged people, including me. And still people will vote for him.


I listened to a little "This Week in Google" with Leo Laporte, Gina Trapani and Jeff Jarvis at TWIT.TV. It's been a few weeks, so I wanted to get caught up on what's happening. There was a conference in the bay area this week called Tech Crunch Disrupt. An interesting part of this was the founders of Twitter are starting a new project called Medium.com. You can go there and sign in with your Twitter user name and password. It's not quite up yet, but looks interesting. Looks like a larger personal Pinterest.

Another story Leo was talking about was about Foxconn in China, the manufacturing plant that makes the iPhone and tons of other stuff. There was a journalist that got a job there (undercover) and exposed some of the bad conditions. The dormitory where workers slept was described as "a nightmare". The dorm was allegedly a mix of garbage, sweat and foam -- and when the reporter opened his wardrobe, " lots of cockroaches crawl out from inside and the bedsheets that are being distributed to every new workers are full of dirt and ashes."

Proposed NFL stadium in downtown Los Angeles put on fast track



Been hearing about this book from Bob Woodard all week on the radio. I just went and got the audio version on Audible.com. Woodward's reporting in his new book, "The Price of Politics," reveals a president whom he said lacked the "stamina" in turning personal relationships with congressional leaders into action the way some of his predecessors have done. It's bound to be talked about just like every book Woodward writes.
