Venus Mirandose

A step on the path of one woman's journey to internal fearlessness. Personally, I think these truly lovely photos are appropriate for anyone, but if you or those who dictate your choices object to tasteful nudity (and even if not) any responsibility for your reactions to viewing them is yours. Thank you for sharing, my friend. You are more beautiful than could ever be seen, but these come close to capturing your inner earth mother. :) Posted via email from Moments of Awareness

Cable Franchising Video: Keep Authority Local Keywords: cable franchise incumbent preemption statewide franchising By christopher on January 30, 2011 In 2006, this short documentary helped to stop a push from incumbent providers to gut local authority over telecommunications and cable.  Unfortunately, several states then gutted that same local authority, leading to higher prices for consumers and, surprise surprise, no real increase in competition.   Video:  FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).

California judge allows visits with triplets for mother made brain-damaged while giving birth

LOS ANGELES - A judge on Friday issued a temporary ruling allowing visitation with 4-year-old triplets to a mother so badly brain damaged by medical errors during childbirth that she can no longer walk, talk or eat. Attorneys for both sides praised the tentative 10-page order issued by Superior Court Judge Frederick C. Shaller, who ruled after a two-week hearing that 34-year-old Abbie Dorn would be granted visits of three hours a day for five days each summer at the home in Myrtle Beach, S.C. where her parents care for her. Lisa Helfland Meyer, attorney for Dorn's parents, said the decision set a precedent for "every single parent out there with any sort of disability." "I think this is an astounding victory," Meyer said at a news conference. "The court held that this parent has the same right as any other parent to have visitation and a relationship with their child." Shaller also ordered that the children could have a 30-minute mont

Boise Community Radio hitting the airwaves | Boise, Garden City, Mountain Home | Idaho Statesman

Boise writer Amanda Turner never had any great aspiration to host a radio show. But when a friend suggested it might be a good way to promote local and visiting authors and their work, she thought she’d give it a shot. Every Thursday since last June, Turner has interviewed authors in the office/studio of Boise Community Radio, on the second floor of the Alaska Building at 1020 Main St. She meets her guests at a nearby coffeehouse first. “I always warn people. ... It kind of looks like a dorm room,” Turner said of the radio station’s tiny studio, decked out with an old futon and plentiful posters on the walls. Turner’s show, “The Writers’ Block,” airs online at 1 p.m. Thursdays. Her guests have included faculty from Boise State University and award-winning Boise author Tony Doerr. “I miss academia. That’s how I live vicariously,” joked Turner, a 34-year-old mother of two who majored in linguistics and Russian at the University of Maryland. [...] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Katy

Boise State men's basketball seeking a signature win | Boise State Basketball | Idaho Statesman

There’s not a whole lot to complain about Leon Rice’s first season as coach of the Boise State men’s basketball team. The Broncos are 22-12, finished second in the WAC, advanced to the conference tournament championship game and now find themselves in the semifinals of the College Basketball Invitational. The one thing missing: A signature victory, one that Boise State’s sometimes-fickle basketball fan base can identify with. The Broncos get that chance for a marquee win Wednesday when they take on Oregon (18-17) of the Pac-10 in Eugene. The 8 p.m. game is being televised by HDNet, which is available on DirecTV (channel 306) and Dish Network (362). “It would be big,” said senior forward Paul Noonan, who grew up in Beaverton, Ore., rooting for the Ducks. “They have a good program and they are playing well right now. It would be a big win. A win over the Pac-10 would be a step in the right direction for this program.” [...] ~~~~~~~~~~ Nick Jezierny: 377-6420 Full

Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo sounds an economic warning | Idaho Politics | Idaho Statesman

“The fiscal crisis is as great a threat to the nation as we’ve ever faced,” Sen. Mike Crapo said Tuesday, speaking to Idaho lawmakers about efforts in Washington, D.C., to cut spending. “The fact is that we are fighting for the future of our nation.” For years, Crapo said, he thought this was a crisis for future generations. On Tuesday, he said the market for federal bonds could collapse within five years. “It’s not our children and grandchildren any more. It is us and it will be here soon.” [...] Full article at   Posted via email from Moments of Awareness

Idaho House panel rejects wind power moratorium | Idaho Legislature | Idaho Statesman

BOISE, Idaho — A House panel on Tuesday took the wind out of the sails of those demanding a moratorium on wind power development in Idaho. In an 11-8 vote, the House State Affairs Committee rejected a proposal to ban new turbine projects for two years. Idaho Falls Republican Rep. Erik Simpson was pushing the moratorium on behalf of residents of his eastern Idaho city and surrounding Bonneville County who are unhappy with dozens of turbines that have been erected, some just a mile or so from their houses. Utilities including Avista Corp. also backed the ban, saying the difficulty of integrating wind power into their electricity systems is driving up customers' rates. Representatives who voted against the moratorium Tuesday conceded rapid development of Idaho wind farms was creating some concerns, but they concluded a decision to take a breather on new projects was best left to local county commissions. Rep. Ken Andrus, R-Lava Hot Springs, said he feared a moratorium wo

Cake is on the way to Woodriver Cellars |

No concert has been announced locally, but the ticketing website of alt-rock band Cake is selling tickets to a June 17 gig at Woodriver Cellars in Eagle. Update: The show is slated to go on sale at Ticketfly outlets at 10 a.m. March 25. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember Cake ever playing this market in its 20-year existence. I've had concert promoters bounce the possibility off me over the years, but the Sacramento band always wants a bit too much money. [...] Full article at   Posted via email from Moments of Awareness

What’s next for Boise County after bankruptcy filing? | Local News | Idaho Statesman

When Boise County filed Chapter 9 bankruptcy March 1, it entered uncharted territory as possibly the first county in state history to seek bankruptcy protection. Few attorneys in Idaho are well versed on Chapter 9 bankruptcy, the section of the code dedicated to municipalities. James Spiotto, a Chicago-based attorney who has authored numerous books and articles on municipal defaults and bankruptcy, told the Idaho Statesman last week that there are myriad consequences when municipalities resort to bankruptcy. He said it starts with attorney and consultant fees that can soar into the millions. Then there’s the impact on county workers — particularly those dealing with financial matters — who have to devote time to bankruptcy-related inquiries. There’s also the stigma of bankruptcy and long-term financial ramifications. “In the West, there’s an old saying, ‘You don’t hang a person for stealing horses, you hang them so that horses won’t be stolen,’ ” Spiotto said, quoting a Texas

Our View: A bad choice, but the others are worse | Editorials | Idaho Statesman

Depending on how you think of it, the Idaho House voted to raise taxes or delayed a tax break. Either way, the grocery tax credit is most valuable to low-income Idahoans. Putting this tax relief on hold for one year is an awful place to scrounge up $15 million. But the move mitigates the damage in the 2011-12 budget — staving off some further program cuts that would have a profound effect on low-income Idahoans. Tax increase or not, there’s no debating it’s a flip-flop. In 2008, lawmakers voted to incrementally increase this income tax credit by $10 a year, in order to better reflect the sales taxes paid on food. They also kept a structure that provides a bigger break to Idaho’s poorest residents: $70 per household member in 2010, compared to $50 per household member for everyone else. (Seniors get an additional $20 per person.) The long-range — and now, evidently, longer-range — plan is to max out the credits at $100 per person, regardless of income, and $120 for seni

Personal vaccine doubles brain cancer patient survival time | Science Blog

A dendritic cell vaccine personalized for each individual based on the patient’s own tumor may increase median survival time in those with a deadly form of brain cancer called glioblastoma, an early-phase study at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has found. Published last week in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Cancer Research, the study also identified a subset of patients more likely to respond to the vaccine — those with a subtype of glioblastoma known as mesenchymal, which accounts for about one-third of all cases. This is the first time in brain cancer research that a subset of patients more likely to respond to an immunotherapy has been identified, said the study’s senior author, Dr. Linda Liau, a Jonsson Cancer Center researcher and a professor of neurosurgery. The study found that the vaccine, administered after conventional surgery and radio-chemotherapy, was associated with a median survival of 31.4 months, double the 15 months of historical controls in

How Vital Is a Planet's Magnetic Field? New Debate | Earth & Magnetic Field, Space Weather | Mars, Venus, Solar Wind | LiveScience

Solar wind particles generate the aurora phenomena in the Earth’s atmosphere. CREDIT: NASA View full size image Our nearest planetary neighbors, Mars and Venus, have no oceans or lakes  or rivers. Some researchers have speculated that they were blown dry by the solar wind, and that our Earth escaped this fate because its strong magnetic field deflects the wind. However, a debate has arisen over whether a magnetic field is any kind of shield at all. The controversy stems from recent observations that show Mars and Venus are losing oxygen ions from their atmospheres into space at about the same rate as Earth. This came as something of a surprise, since only Earth has a strong dipolar magnetic fieldthat can prevent solar wind particles from slamming into the upper atmosphere and directly stripping away ions.

In poison emergencies, who'll answer your call? -

The Georgia Poison Center, above, is one of the agencies whose funding could be cut by Congress. (CNN) -- Congress might cut most of the federal funding for your local poison control center, which could mean a longer wait during your next poison-related emergency. Measure H.R. 1 would cut $27.3 million, or about 93%, of federal funding for poison control centers across the United States. The bill was passed by the House of Representatives, but rejected by the Senate on March 9. Congressional leaders now need to negotiate a final spending measure, and that bill might include cuts to the poison control centers. "My feeling is that just based on my experience, it would end up costing lives somewhere along the way," says Jo Anne Bryant, a nurse with 30 years experience who recently called a poison center when her husband, Ronald, accidentally inhaled pesticide fumes while cleaning out the garage. "I've dealt with some emergencies in this field over my
