New President

As the US presidential race has been hotting up in real life, the Radio Times has conducted a poll to see which US television character readers would like to see as US president.Around 2,000 people took part in the survey which decided that rather than having an incompetent in charge of the USA, they would like Homer Simpson to take the role. In second place came West Wing’s fictional president, Josiah Bartlett.

Homer’s manifesto in the Radio Times, written by The Simpsons scriptwriters ran: “I promise there will be fewer nuclear disasters with me as your mayor than with me as your nuclear safety inspector.”

The top ten in full:

1 – Homer Simpson (The Simpsons) (John says “hes got my vote”
2 – Josiah Bartlet (The West Wing)
3 – Dr Frasier Crane (Frasier)
4 – Sgt Bilko (The Phil Silvers Show)

9/11

I forgot about September the 11th anniversary, I am also starting my degree this week, I heard it on the radio as i drove to college this morning on  live95FM Limerick and someone on was talking about their 9/11 story, I remember when it happened I was watching  RTE News at the time, as the news came in.

The following: Taken from the http://rte.ie website and copyright of that company and website:

Commemoration ceremonies are continuing in the US to mark the second anniversary of the 11 September attacks.
Relatives of many of the 2,800 people killed in the World Trade Centre gathered for a minute’s silence at 1.46pm, the time when the first plane hit the north tower.
The ceremonies were led by the city’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg and the former

Ceremonies have also been taking place at the White House, the Pentagon and at the field in Pennsylvania where a fourth hijacked jet crashed.
Yesterday, US President George W Bush warned that al-Qaeda is still plotting against Americans and must be hunted down and defeated.
His remarks came as a new al-Qaeda audiotape vowed further attacks on targets in the US.
Mr Bush did not refer to the audiotape, purported to be from Osama bin Laden and his deputy, but he said the threat from the organisation was real.

Snooping yahoo

Apparently Yahoo’s website is able to track what you do, there not alone I’m sure

‘Yahoo is now using something called ‘Web Beacons’ to track Yahoo Group users around the net and see what you’re doing – similar to cookies. Take a look at their updated privacy statement.
About half-way down the page, in the section ‘Outside the Yahoo! Network’, you’ll see a little ‘click here’ link that will let you opt-out of their new method of snooping. You may want to do this. Once you have clicked that link, you are opted out.
Notice the ‘Success’ message at the top of the next page. Be careful, because on that page there is a ‘Cancel Opt-out’ button that, if clicked, will *undo* the opt-out.’
