Whoah! Talk about skeletons coming out of the closet! Sources are saying that Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol Palin, became pregnant, and that Sarah Palin pretended the baby was her own! This would have been her “fifth child” that has Down’s Syndrome. But is this true or just a rumor?
Probably not true – if it is, the election is effectively over.
update: the pictures are convincing, though…
R.E.M frontman MICHAEL STIPE has threatened to quit America if Senator JOHN McCAIN is elected U.S. President.
The singer – who has recorded a song for McCain’s Democratic rival Barack Obama – will move to the U.K if America picks the Republican candidate at the upcoming November (08) elections.
Stipe says, “He served his country and he did a good job as a serviceman, I will honour him for that, but he is not presidential material.”
He adds, “I’d have to move to England”.
Support for Obama increased tremendously in England just after this announcement…
Integrity Bank of Alpharetta, Georgia, was closed by U.S. regulators today, the 10th bank to collapse this year amid a surge in soured real-estate loans stemming from the worst housing slump since the Great Depression.
Here’s FOX News host Megyn Kelly Wednesday night during Joe Biden’s acceptance speech obviously paying rapt attention so she can thoughtfully analyze his remarks.
Obama chose Joe Biden as his running mate. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi praised Biden, calling him the “full package.” Now he’s getting phone calls from Senator Larry Craig.
“The night’s big event was Obama’s speech, in front of 75,000 enthusiastic supporters and eight confused Broncos season ticket holders.”
With the end of the Olympics in Beijing, all eyes turned for a moment to London, site of the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympics. While looking for good photographs of London, I was contacted by London photographer Jason Hawkes, who had some wonderful images of London, seen from above at night (from a helicopter, to be exact) – some of which which he’s agreed to let me share here. From Jason: “Shooting aerial photography during the daytime had its own difficulties, you are strapped tightly into a harness leaning out of the helicopter, shouting directions through the headsets to the pilot. If shooting in the day can be difficult, night and the lack of light causes its own set of problems, but overcoming them is half the fun and the results can be stunning. I shoot at night using the very latest digital cameras, mounted on either one or two gyro stablazied mounts, depending on the format of the camera and length of lens I’m having to use.”

De 27-jarige Eric Wijngaard uit het Friese dorp Waskemeer is een van de tien winnaars van de Android Developers Contest. Hij wint 275.000 dollar voor zijn programma Picsay, een applicatie om effecten aan foto’s toe te voegen.
Google schreef in november vorig jaar de prijsvraag uit om ervoor te zorgen dat er alvast wat 3rd party applications voor Android zouden zijn als de eerste telefoon met het mobiele besturingssysteem zou verschijnen. “Ik had nog nooit een mobiele applicatie geschreven, dus het leek me wel spannend”, vertelde de winnaar aan Tweakers.net. “Eigenlijk wilde ik liever voor de iPhone ontwikkelen, maar die sdk was toen nog niet uit.”
Hij weet nog niet wat hij gaat doen met het prijzengeld van omgerekend bijna 187.000 euro. “Ik heb een eigen bedrijf waarin ik kan investeren. Ik wil eerst zorgen dat Picsay goed gaat draaien op Android-telefoons. Ik wil eigenlijk Picsay ook geschikt maken voor de iPhone. Dat is goed mogelijk, denk ik.”
27 year old Frisian developer Eric Wijngaard won $275,000 in Google’s Android Developer Challenge for his ‘PicSay’ application.
In an interview with a Dutch website he says he likes Google’s SDK but “What I really wanted to do was develop an iPhone app. The iPhone SDK wasn’t out yet, though.”
Asked what he would do with the cash, his response was “I guess I could invest it in my software company, but first I want to port PicSay to the iPhone.”
