Journal Journal: Should Celebrities Speak out or Shut up?

I posted a story on Mediagab yesterday morning regarding the debate of whether celebrities should speak out. Do celebrities hold an unfair advantage by being able to draw an audience? Did Michael Moore go over board or was he out of line at the Oscars for the comments he made. Check out the story and the debate that raged below it.

Journal Journal: Emergency Room Visit 2

I had to go to the Emergency Room last night. I was suffering from chest pains all day so I left work early and went to the ER. They did all sorts of tests. EKG, Chest X-Rays, Blood tests but they couldn't find anything wrong which is good. But I still feel the paind and I don't know what they are. Everybody is all worried about me now which I don't like. I mean it is great that everyone cares about me but I hate making people worry. There are other things for people to worry about then little 'ol me.


Journal Journal: MIT to Develop "nanotechnology" Military Uniform 2

MIT was awarded a five year $50 million dollar grant to develop a military uniform that would make soldiers invisible, grant super-human strength and provide instant medical treatment. Or better known in Quake 3 as the Invisibility, Quad Damage and Med-kit power-ups. The suits would be achieved by developing particle-sized materials and devices called "nanotechnoloy", nestled into the uniforms fabric. Supercharged shoes could release energy when soldiers jump, propelling them over a 20-foot wall. Or rocket jumping without the splash damage.
