Aquaman is a comic figure that originally appeared in DC Comics series. Young people before the Generation Y may be known. Kisahnya, there is a champion of the kingdom of Atlantis delusion, operate in the sea. Like Superman is Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne is Batman, Aquaman is Arthur Curry. Aquaman has strength that is unique to breathe in the sea. Moreover he can communicate with sea animals and even the sentient sea waves through the mind. Of course, she can swim very fast and very long. He high-pressure resistance in the depth of the sea and the sea is like. But in the land he indifferently, kantoran people like you and me.


So? We may also have a few attributes Aquaman, but in general we landlubber. Even first-used to live in a tree. In the land-we are just ordinary, looking for work and living socially, the way to the mall, vacation to the mountain. Untung-fortunately swim to the sea, but only up to one meter depth.

If I can share a few personal stories, my life in the land, the foot was quite so weak and difficult road. Not sick, but rather that totter and fall can be encouraged. Continue if established after a long time and if so pegel road so far tired. Body part other than just look good foot, and walk of life continue, even eager to know why lately. So no problem foot problem, many compensation.

Consolation is that with the lower legs, so to even strong swimmers. No pool can be a champion, but most can not swim long and quiet. With the glasses (goggle) we can see in the water and watch the people passing. All float in Suspensi, including time. The world does not revolve as semjua and teredam voice, very quiet.

Most important, the water in the weak leg work the same as other people., The lean, fat people in the same water. We know teri fish and whales alike can swim, and they do not need feet. Yes, the main deh world's water is suitable for people who are difficult to walk.

Aquaman ever appeared in the film and get new friends as Aqualad, but he was less successful than seprofesi colleagues. Superman, Batman is much more powerful (perhaps because the mainstream) and the recent Spiderman melejit forward as new stars form the day-to-day exactly the Ordinary People. Aquaman even dicemoohkan that kehebatannya is limited. What's the superhero so if pursuing criminals? Live up to the land, pass directly to the criminals be pursued Aquaman.

But that does not pursue criminals, life in the water can be enjoyed enough to compensate for the limitations of life on land difficult for people on foot. Evidence that the limitations apply only to a certain environment, and can be solved if we change the environment. People who feel can not talk, will be regarded critic if he moved smoothly to the culture of silence. People that are less preferred because in many less smile, can move to Russia where the people can not smile unless there are special issues with a known good. Secret to be able to function well is the introduction of the environment.

There are still people like that dimarahin. In Western environment, be considered dangerous for that he menggodok revenge scenario while membungbkam thousand languages. In this culture, if people continue to replicate dimarahi time, even considered challenging. In high school, have teachers who love to get mad if there are students who hold a time be reproved. Finally, the teacher cried out: "Why do you say continue? You think I fear in you?"

"No, Sir." Responsibility of the students. "I just want to give feedback." Wah the child is considered downright gauche, even by their own friends. "Ngapain you here? How to learn or want to play ball? Tuh, outside the main ball. Take it like that." Show your face again and Pak Guru seisi class, the children, without expression, go out and play ball have participated.

He should go to the swimming pool and become Aquaman, may be more peaceful for him, free from pressure.

Batgirl is the name of several fictional characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics, depicted as female counterparts to the superhero Batman. Originally created by Bob Kane and Sheldon Moldoff, the first incarnation of the character, the "Bat-Girl" Betty Kane, debuted in Batman #139 (1961). Following the promotion of Julius Schwartz to editor of the Batman-related comic book titles in 1964, the Bat-Girl character was removed from publication and replaced by the "new" Batgirl Barbara Gordon in 1967. The new character was introduced in Gardner Fox and Carmine Infantino's Detective Comics #359, entitled "The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl".

The Barbara Gordon version of Batgirl made regular appearances in Batman-related comics from 1966 to 1988. The official retirement of Batgirl took place in Batgirl Special #1 (June 1988), which was published a few months after Barbara Gordon's shooting by The Joker in the graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke (March 1988). Editor Kim Yale and comic book author John Ostrander later reinvented Barbara Gordon as Oracle, the premier information broker of the DC Comics Universe and leader of the Birds of Prey organization.

In the 1999 story Batman: No Man's Land, Helena Bertinelli briefly assumes the role of Batgirl, until she is stripped of the identity by Batman towards the conclusion of the story for violating his stringent codes. Within the same year, a new character introduced during the No Man's Land series, named Cassandra Cain, created by Kelley Puckett and Damion Scott, becomes the third Batgirl, and she is mentored by Batman and Oracle. Cassandra Cain was the first version of the Batgirl character to be featured in an eponymous monthly series, which was canceled in 2006, ending with Cain relinquishing her title as Batgirl. During the "Headhunt" arc of the Birds of Prey comic book series, the Charlotte Gage-Radcliffe character created by Gail Simone temporarily took the name of Batgirl, but was eventually forced to abandon the role by Oracle and subsequently adopted the alias "Misfit." Following the events of the limited series 52 (2006), the Cassandra Cain character reclaimed her former identity as Batgirl.

DC has announced a new "Batgirl" comic series will begin August 2009, but the company has not specified which version of the character will star.

Quote of the day - George Jonas - multiculturism

Multicultural Canada is turning from a country of two nations into a country of a dozen xenoliths: Inward looking, hostile fragments, jealously guarding their ethno-religious distinctions as entitlements, while resenting the entitlements of others as privileges. It's scant consolation that, being culturally silver-plated, such groups are likely to express their sectarian sentiments in idiomatic suburban English, sometimes peppered with current slang, Internet lingo or even mock-liberal concerns.

"By their fruits shall ye know them." We disdained the American melting pot and embraced multiculturalism instead. We forgot that the opposite of integration is disintegration.

Record cold in Chicago; global warming postponed yet again

From CBS 2 in Chicago on Tuesday:
Have you left your air conditioner in the closet this summer, and worn long pants more often than shorts? If so, you may not be surprised to find out that Chicago is seeing its coldest July in more than 65 years.

The National Weather Service says 2009 has seen the coldest July since the official recording station was moved away from the lakefront in 1942. The average temperature this month in Chicago has been a mere 68.9 degrees.

Even in the years before 1942, when the National Weather Service recorded temperatures at the cooler lakefront, there are only three years that had colder Julys through the 26th.

There have also been far more days than usual with high temperatures less than 80 degrees this year. In 2009, there were 13 days where the temperature did not exceed 80 degrees. Only three Julys in the past 67 years have had more days in Chicago with highs less than 80 – there were 18 such days in 1992, and 14 in 1996 and 2000.

We have also failed to reach 90 degrees at any time this month.

Most of the MSM/DNC's case for the "global warming" hoax is based upon repetition of that phrase. MSM/DNC has been left with little else in recent years, as cold weather data continues to accumulate around the country and around the world.

But it is still early in hurricane season. MSM/DNC can still hope for a big disaster that might be spun into a global warming story that might rescue Obama's Cap and Tax plan.

Tracing The Roots of Anime

From the popular Transformers movie release to the Yu-Gi-Oh! cards your kids might have, anime has certainly left its mark on the world in recent years. Understanding its roots, though, is the key to predicting where this ever-changing genre is headed.

Before you can understand the history of anime, maybe it's first necessary to understand exactly what anime is. "Anime" literally means animation in Japanese. It does not distinguish one style from another; it's simply a way to talk about animation of all types.

Worldwide, though, anime is what we call a particular style of Japanese art and animation. Because of its popularity in recent years, the term ‘anime' has come to mean a style rather than animation that comes specifically from Japan. Through the years, anime has also been known by other names. Japanime is one, and Japanimation is another. Manga is a more recent, and perhaps controversial, term for anime-style comic books.

A Bit of History

While lots of animation was produced in Japan from about 1917 on, the anime that we know and love today is considered to have been created by Tezuka Osamu, who started drawing comic books in 1947. His character Astroboy (or Tetsuwan Atomu as he is known in Japan) hit television screens around Japan in 1963, which is generally considered to be the first mainstream anime cartoon. What's more is that Tezuka Osamu helped to create the giant robot genre that has been such an ongoing theme in both anime and manga.

Anime became such a popular art form in Japan because the live action film genre was simply too expensive to be a hit. As a result, some of the same thematic steps western filmmakers were taking in the world of live action were being taken in Japanese animation simultaneously.

The Real Difference

As a whole, anime is quite different from American animation. Anime encompasses complex story lines of nearly every genre as well as thought-provoking characters that most American animation stays away from. Since American animation is considered "kid's stuff," and anime is a mainstream form of entertainment for all kinds of people in Japan, lots of people misinterpret anime's intentions.

While some of anime is okay for you and your children to view together, many films contain adult themes and situations that aren't okay for younger viewers. Keep in mind that Japan has very different attitudes about nudity, strong language, and violence, so plopping your toddler down in front of anime because it's a cartoon just isn't a good idea.

Like the Idea?

If you're interested in exploring anime further, there are several films that are considered to be classics to the genre as a whole. Try starting with Princess Mononoke. With a strong plot and beautiful style, you're sure to fall in love with this type of animation instantly.

Inuyasha - Son of a Demon Dog










Here’s the lowdown, “Inuyasha” is the story of a 15 year old schoolgirl named Kagome Higurashi who lives at a Japanese shrine. She just happens to be the reincarnation of an ancient priestess named Kikyo. Kikyo guarded the sacred Shikon no Tama, also known as the ‘Jewel of Four Souls’. Long ago Kikyo captured and sealed away a half-demon named Inuyasha who was attempting to steal the jewel in order to become a full-fledged demon. Kikyo ultimately died and had the jewel burned with her body.


One day, Kagome was pulled into an ancient well and plunged deep into the past, 50 years after Kikyo’s death. This is the world feudal era Japan in the 1500’s and there she meets up with Kaede, Kikyo’s sister. Kaede realizes Kagome is Kikyo’s reincarnation and together they find out that the sacred jewel is hidden inside Kagome’s body. By accident the jewel is ripped from her body and the dog-demon, Inuyasha is released. He of course, immediately wants the jewel for himself. To thwart his attempts, Kaede casts a spell on him where he must wear a necklace that allows Kaede to control his actions with one simple word, “Sit!”. If you’re not interested in the story at this point, you’re just not getting it. This is cool stuff.


Inuyasha is pronounced, (ee-new-yah-sha)


When Kagome says the magic word it forces Inuyasha face first into the ground. The precious jewel accidently gets shattered while they try to retrieve it from a giant bird who stole it. And together, Kaede and Inuyasha must find all the shards and put it back together before it falls into the wrong hands. Theirs is a match made in heaven and they must learn to get along in order to survive. A new twist on a ‘girl and her demon dog’.


You know a show has to be good if a fan has to ask if one of the characters’ left arm ever grew back after the lead character hacked it off before transforming into a giant furry white dog.


Luckily for American fans, the good people at the Cartoon Network regularly added ‘Inuyasha’ to the Adult Swim line up. After seeing the Japanese version as well, the English dubbed version and the voice talent really help fill out the world. If you liked the Japanese animated films, ‘Spirited Away’ or ‘Princess Mononoke’ or live action fare like, ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, ‘Angel’ or ‘Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon’, then you definitely should give ‘Inuyasha’ a whirl.


Asides from the inventive mythological influenced set up, the ‘Inuyasha’ series and films are just really well told stories. The half hour episodes truly pack it in and give you dynamic and rich story is a compact time frame.


Just to keep you guys up with the ‘Inuyasha’ universe, there have been three feature length films released, “Inuyasha: Love that Transcends Time”, “Inuyasha: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass” and most recently – “Inuyasha: Sword to Rule the World”.

Boxing champion Vernon Forrest killed:: Latest Photos

Vernon-Forrest pictures forrest  Vernon-Forrest Vernon-Forrest photo

On the evening of July 25, 2009, 38-year-old Forrest was shot several times in the back on a street just southwest of downtown. Keyes said there were no suspects. Fulton County medical examiner Michele Stauffenberg confirmed the case was a homicide and that the autopsy showed Forrest died from “multiple gunshot wounds involving the torso and thigh.”Charles Watson, the boxer’s manager, said police and witnesses told him that Forrest had stopped at a gas station to put air in his car tire when a man approached asking for money.Vernon had his wallet out and the guy snatched his wallet and started running. Vernon pursued after him. The guy turned the corner and Vernon didn’t see him. He turned around to go back to the car. That’s when he started firing. Forrest’s 11-year-old godson was with him, but had gone into the convenience store and did not witness the shooting.



Quote of the day - Professor Ian Plimer

I’m a natural scientist. I’m out there every day, buried up to my neck in sh**, collecting raw data. And that’s why I’m so sceptical of these models, which have nothing to do with science or empiricism but are about torturing the data till it finally confesses. None of them predicted this current period we’re in of global cooling. There is no problem with global warming. It stopped in 1998. The last two years of global cooling have erased nearly 30 years of temperature increase.

Sgt. James Crowley; scandal; DUI; police brutality; drugs; alcoholism; bribery

I am trying another experiment. Last year, I attracted google traffic from idiots looking for dirt on Sarah Palin. This past April, I attracted google traffic from idiots looking for dirt on Carrie Prejean, the former Miss California whose crown was removed because her views on gay marriage agree with those of the majority of Americans.

Both posts drew tremendous amounts of traffic (especially the post on Carrie Prejean).

Now, I want to see how many people are trying to find dirt on Sgt. Crowley so as to somehow justify the race card comments of Barack Obama this week.

Obama plays the race card; Professor Henry Louis Gates; Tavis Smiley; Mark Steyn; The big picture

The nation has become embroiled in another racial controversy this week, as President Obama lashed out at local police officers who arrested a black Harvard professor. Conservatives who attack the President by getting bogged down in the minutiae of the arrest are missing the point.

The same story repeats itself every time.

(1) Some racial incident occurs.
(2) The left predictably cries "racism."
(3) The left predictably links the incident to the entire US history.
(4) President Obama either (a) attacks America for its racist past or (b) flies to a foreign country and apologizes to terrorists for America's racist past.

There is no point in arguing about what some Harvard professor said to the police or whether the police should have arrested him. The real point is that the election of the nation's first black president has accomplished nothing. The sequence of events listed above has been repeating itself for decades [except for the part about Obama making it worse.]

We elected a black president, yet white America receives no credit for this fact. We are still accused of racism at every opportunity. Overpaid taxpayer funded PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley has stated that Obama's election was only a "down payment" on what white America owes to African Americans.

Barack Hussein Obama, the candidate, held out the promise of ending bitterness in American politics. Obama was elected with the help of a few moderate swing voters that abandoned the Republican party in favor of "change" and the promise of an end to divisive politics. Those who thought they were voting for Ghandi or the Dalai Lama or Jesus Christ are now surprised to learn that they ended up with Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson with a better haircut and less jewelry. There is little that Obama said in speaking out against the police officers that would not have been said by Jackson or Sharpton.

In fact, it seems that the Obamedia owes an apology to Bill Clinton. In 2008, Clinton was denounced after he discounted the South Carolina primary (in which Obama beat Hillary) by comparing that primary to previous South Carolina primaries in which Jesse Jackson emerged victorious. It turns out that Clinton's comparison was closer to the truth than the Obamedia would have had us believe at that time. As president, Obama has played the race card just as clumsily and dishonestly as Jackson ever did during his heyday.

Mark Steyn is among the few that have placed the incident in its proper context:
A black president, a black governor and a black mayor all agree with a black Harvard professor that he was racially profiled by a white-Latino-black police team, headed by a cop who teaches courses in how to avoid racial profiling. The boundless elasticity of such endemic racism suggests that the "post-racial America" will be living with blowhard grievance-mongers like professor Gates unto the end of time.

In a fairly typical "he said/VIP said" incident, the VIP was the author of his own misfortune but, with characteristic arrogance, chose to ascribe it to systemic racism, Jim Crow, lynchings, the Klan, slavery, Jefferson impregnating Sally Hemmings, etc. And so it goes, now and forever.

As long as one white person in America is not penniless or holds a job or owns anything that might be taxed by the government or taken by force, the race-baiting establishment MSM/DNC will cry "racism." Black on white racism does not stop merely because the blacks have seized power. In fact, with more power in the hands of the reverse racists, we can expect race card usage to intensify.

Somewhere in the United States there is another innocent policemen or local official or average homeowner or financially strapped employer that will be the next victim of the race card. As Mark Steyn wrote, "[a]nd so it goes, now and forever."

Quote of the day - Ann Coulter - Universal food coverage

Isn't food important? Why not "universal food coverage"? If politicians and employers had guaranteed us "free" food 50 years ago, today Democrats would be wailing about the "food crisis" in America, and you'd be on the phone with your food care provider arguing about whether or not a Reuben sandwich with fries was covered under your plan.

The Anime Sensation, Aka The Japanese Invasion

The Anime Sensation has been around for many years. But it is only in recent years it has become so prevalent in American society. For literally decades Anime, otherwise known as Japanese animation has been becoming more mainstream for decades. The first one that most people remember tend to come from a small list of two. They either remember Star Blazers (aka SpaceCruiser Yamamoto) or they remember Akira, an anime movie that was ground breaking in many ways. There are also a few who first were introduced to Anime by Robotech. Robotech was much like Star Blazers in the fact that it was a large re-write of the stories from the original Japanese based stories. At the time of those releases, it was thought that a direct conversion of the stories would not hold the attention of American audiences. While it is debatable if that is a true supposition or not, the fact remains that Robotech, Star Blazers, and Akira were and are profitable franchises in the Anime field.

Now, in the 21st century there are many variations of Anime that have reached the American Shores. Once we invaded Japanese territory with weapons of personal destruction, now the Japanese have invaded our shores, with entertaining Anime. There are so many titles and types it defies easy listing. There are the types that first invaded, that are very much like Robotech. There is X-rated Anime, some that are so bad, such as the Legend of the Overlord, that any child viewing them could easily be scarred for life. Although adults may find such "tentacle love" as found and Overfiend entertaining and even exciting, it is most decidedly not for children.

Amime will show your common entertainment seeking American a different type of entertainment in the sort of creative animation that is very much beyond that of non-Japanese created animation. It is not to say that there are not some creative things to come from American studios, it is to say that the Japanese have been doing it longer, and in this authors opinion, better.

So the next time you are looking for something new to see, check out a little Anime. It wont hurt. And if you can not decide which one, we have two suggestions. Legend of the Overfiend which is very much an adult thing, or Akira, but this is close to the adult only, save that Akira is all violence and the Legend, well that is sex and violence. Some might call Legend straight up disgusting, but that is for you to decide for yourself I would think.
