Yet another Gun at Batman showing - Connecticut this time

Man Brings Gun Into New Haven Movie Theater

New Haven police apprehended a man who brought a loaded handgun into a movie theater during a showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" on Tuesday night. On Wednesday, he said he brought the gun with him to feel safe.

Sung Ho Hwang, a 46-year-old attorney from New Haven, was arrested and charged with breach of peace and interfering with police after it was discovered he brought a loaded hand gun into the theater.

"I normally do not carry, but I live in downtown New Haven and the movie was getting out at 1 a.m., so I felt that I should protect myself since I was alone," Hwang, who has a valid permit to carry a gun, said during a news conference on Wednesday afternoon.

New Haven Police responded to Criterion-Bow Tie Cinemas at 86 Temple St. after receiving a call reporting a man with a gun inside theater one or two.

According to police, an usher said at least three patrons inside the theater saw that Hwang had a holster with a gun in it and alerted theater staff, who then called police.

Another guns in a theater incident - near miss

WESTLAKE -- A 37-year-old North Ridgeville man was charged Monday, after police say he walked into the Regal Cinemas at Crocker Park in Westlake, carrying a satchel full of weapons.

Police have identified the man as Scott Smith.

Westlake police say Smith bought a movie ticket for the 10 o'clock showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" Saturday night.

A keen-eyed theater manager and off-duty Westlake police officer, who was working security, stopped Smith shortly after he sat down in his theater seat. The officer asked to search his bag, and Smith complied, without incident. Inside the bag were a loaded 9 mm Glock handgun, two additional loaded magazines and two knives.

My last 20 days

As a star member.

My star status expires later this month and as of today it looks like I will not be renewing. It has been a great ride, 8 years of debates, ups and downs as we saw some great things and not so great things happen in the world.

When I first found this site, I was immediately hooked, some place where the facts were facts and if you didn't post the facts, you were called for it. I quickly learned that most of what was posted was backed up with facts.

Participation here has made me a better person overall, my typing and spelling are much improved, quick thinking is better and general written communication skills have advanced. Just list week I learned that Mittens was pilock, broadened my horizons, now I can talk slang with my British friends, lol.

I will not stop contributing, just will have to tolerate the advertisements and miss the star benefits.

The next several months are going to be one big stress ball, with the election, one daughter getting married and the other starting college, then to top it off, the company I have spent my 28 year career with announced a massive restructuring where all positions are on the table.

I will be here, but in a lesser capacity and may need to step away to deal with stresses.

It has been a great time and I owe many here a thank you for being here and for the times you have helped.

Tampa: RNC 'Romneyville' camp faces legal review

TAMPA --
A tentative truce has been reached between city zoning officials and a group of protesters camping out on a commercial lot in downtown Tampa.

The city is investigating whether the encampment behind the Army Navy Surplus Market, 1312 N. Tampa St., breaks the law and whether the store's owner can be fined for allowing protesters to stay in the lot.

"The zoning department is reviewing this case right now," said Dennis Rogero, the city's director of neighborhood empowerment. "If it is a violation, the owner has 14 days to comply. If he doesn't comply, the issue will go to our zoning board's special magistrate for a ruling."

Rogero said zoning officials expect to find out this week if the camp is illegal.

Gregory Lockett, one of the organizers of the encampment he calls "Romneyville," said activists have a legal right to be there.

Back in Black - Campaign Fibs

http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-july-24-2012/back-in-black---campaign-fibs

Both the Obama and Romney campaigns lie to Lewis Black, but it's fine just so long as they're not misrepresenting Nutella.

5 companies that aren't expected to make it through 2013

Each year, the editors at 24/7 Wall St. identify 10 American brands most likely to disappear. This year's list reflects the brutally competitive nature of certain industries and suggests what can happen to companies that fall behind in efficiency, innovation or financing.

The website takes a methodical approach in predicting which brands will disappear before the end of 2013, based on the following criteria:

•A rapid decline in sales, contributing to steep losses.
•Disclosures by the parent of a brand that it might go out of business.
•Rapidly rising costs that are unlikely to be recouped through higher prices.
•Companies that are sold.
•Companies that go into bankruptcy.
•Companies that have lost most of their customers.
•Operations with rapidly withering market shares.

The 5 most endangered companies are:
Pacific Sunwear of California
Research In Motion - makers of Blackberry
Current TV
Talbots
American Airlines

My nephew works for one of those, I am afraid for him and his family.

Corkscrew Wind Turbine Now Powering Cleveland Indians Stadium

I saw this today driving into downtown Cleveland today and wondered what it was. I guess it has been there since April, but I try not to go down there too often.



Corkscrew Wind Turbine Now Powering Cleveland Indians Stadium
April 13, 2012 By Zachary Shahan

This is an interesting one. A newly patented ‘corkscrew’ wind turbine designed by Cleveland State University (CSU) mechanical engineering professor Dr. Majid Rashidi is now helping to power the Cleveland Indians’ stadium. It was put in place about one week ago.
