FLIGHT 370 FOUND

“IF NOT FOR THE COURAGE OF THE FEARLESS CREW THEY WOULD STILL BE LOST” MALASYIA – International authorities announced that Flight 370, which had been missing for almost a month was found. The plane’s crew and passengers are all safe and also came upon some great fortune as well on their adventurous voyage.

Shah says he thanks co-pilot and little buddy, Fariq Gilligan Hamid for thiinkng fast. “The plane took shore on the grounds of this, an unchartered desert isle,” Shah said. Besides the skip-

Zaharie Ahmad Shah, skipper of the thought lost Boeing 777 actually lived up to the plane’s lucky number. “What started off as a threehour tour of the region turned into almost death,” said the plane’s captain. “If not for the courage of the fearless crew, Flight 340 would be lost,” Shah said. “The flight would be lost.”

Shah said the plane was flying over the Indian Ocean when a storm hit. “The weather started getting rough, the air ship was tossed,” he continued. “If not for the courage of our fearless crew the airplane would be lost… the airplane would be lost.”

“We had no phone signal, no lights, no motor car,” Shah said. “Not a single luxury, it was like Robinson Crusoe, as primitive as can be.”

Shah said he and the co-plot with help from the professor on board help build makeshift huts for those stranded at the tropic port. “My little buddy did a great job along with the professor to build us a sustainable place to live until we could get rescued.”

The pilot went on the say everyone was helpful with the exception of the millionaire and his wife. “They kept throwing around money like it was confetti – which would have been nice if we had someplace to spend it,” Shah said.


Things came together well as the survivors worked together to survive and try to figure out how to get back to civilization.

APRIL FOOLS 2014

Aries (March 21-April 19) Be careful this week because the Sun is in your sign; and it is going to line up with Uranus late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. This will trigger such feelings of independence, you might want to run away and join the French Foreign Legion. The following night (Wednesday night/Thursday morning) your Aries Sun will be at odds with Pluto. Think Darth Vader standing in the doorway. Perhaps your feisty, rebellious nature will be at odds with someone else and a power struggle will ensue midweek. (Did you like “ensue”? Quite the euphemism, eh?) Fear not, by Friday, things will settle down. But this week does have its moments. Count to five before you respond to others for your own sake and theirs. Taurus (April 20-May 20)

There’s a lot going on behind the scenes in your life right now. These events can affect travel, publishing, the media, medicine and the law. They can also bring surprises related to higher education. For the first time in over 30 years, Mars is encouraging health problems related to infections, fever and burns. Fortunately, this will subside for the next two months, but its energy will return with a blast in late May. Use this time to heal. Meanwhile, disputes about politics, religion, publishing and the media could come to a head this week. Hopefully, by Friday, the dust will settle. Good news: By Sunday the 20th, the Sun will be in Taurus! Yippee! Gemini (May 21-June 20) This is a popular time for you! Continue to enjoy schmoozing with others as well as attending classes, clubs and organiza-

tions. However, do be aware that midweek, someone or something will catch you off guard. Someone you know might throw you a curve ball or kick you out of a club. Or they might say or do something that shocks you. Alternatively, you might meet a real character who blows you out of the water especially with power struggles about shared property, taxes, debt and differing or opposing values. Stay on your toes so you can handle this. Be alert. (The world needs more lerts.) By Friday, it looks like the coast is clear; although the weekend does have some speed bumps. Cancer (June 21-July 22) The power struggles that I mention in All Signs above will be hard for you to avoid because they take place in your chart right in the area dealing with authority figures - i.e. Bosses,

parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. (Oy vey.) Someone in a position of authority might do something that shocks or offends you or catches you off guard. And you will want to respond. You might want to quit or resign. On the heels of this, comes a power struggle with partners and close friends. But all of this depends on how you react to everyone. After all - and this is the magic feather — your reaction is your choice. Are you going to be Sonny in The Godfather or Michael? (Michael Corlone was always chill.) Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) The biggest thing you have to watch out for this week is arguments. It will be so easy to argue with others about politics, religion or your ideals. Perhaps the arguments will relate to travel plans or something to do with higher educa-


tion, medicine, publishing, the media and legal matters? You are coming on quite strong lately; although in the last few weeks, you have softened. Make a little pact with yourself that you don’t have to prove anything; you don’t have to sell anything; you don’t have to convince anyone of anything and you don’t have to win. Step back and cloak yourself in the regal robes from which every noble Leo commands. You don’t do petty. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) This week you might find yourself in the midst of disputes about shared property, taxes, debt, insurance matters, inheritances and anything you own jointly with others. Possibly, these disputes will also focus on differing values. Something unexpected to do with your bank account or something you own or share with someone else will trigger this. Then your reaction could lead to a power struggle, perhaps with a romantic partner or even your kids. Remember: Anger serves no purpose other than to make everyone miserable. Consider this an opportunity to demonstrate grace under pressure. You can offer this to others by being a living lesson (or a cautionary tale). Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) The sign of Libra governs haute couture and it also rules the law, which is why legal professionals are well dressed. Mostly. Libra is also the mediator, the peacemaker and the diplomat. I remind you of these things because you will need your Libran skills this week. (Oh yeah.) Your partner or close friend might surprise you with something out of the blue.

(It really catches you off guard.) Feeling frazzled, you might strike back and become engulfed in a power struggle. But for what? Instead, keep your head and think how to act so that you benefit yourself and others. Why do anything that would hurt yourself? Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) This week has its ups and downs, but midweek, you will likely feel stress and surprise related to your job or perhaps your health - or both. Whatever occurs will be unexpected. Zowie! In a mundane way, it might mean computer crashes, cancelled meetings and staff shortages that cause upsets. These in turn, could create difficulties with someone, especially a sibling, neighbour or relative, which could lead to harsh words or worse. Never forget what a powerful sign you are, and how, at times, you intimidate others. “Moi?” “Yes, you.” Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to put a lid on things and ride this storm out with class. Be a role model for others. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Your sign will see stress in the following areas this week: Your relations with children; your relations with lovers and romantic interests; your relations with sports; and your relations with the entertainment world and the hospitality industry. These are the areas where you can expect some surprises and blowups. In all these areas, potential accidents are likely, so be vigilant and smart. Think ahead and be observant. If something goes wrong, don’t get caught up in a yelling match about money and possessions. Too much distracENIGMA

tion! Just deal with the problem and solve it. Ideally, prevent it before it happens. You are travelling through life at the rate of one second per second. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your challenge this week is to keep things running smoothly at home. Domestic quarrels, as well as interruptions to your home and family routine, are likely. Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur. These glitches could happen with electronics and high-tech equipment. You are a perfectionist by nature, so when things go wrong, this can make you feel irritated and before you know it, you’re in an argument with someone. Who needs this? Not you. What you want to do is restore things as quickly as possible to a smooth running normalcy. Gravity - not just a good idea; it’s the law. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) This week could be potentially accident prone for you. Of course, an accident doesn’t have to happen. Most accidents can be avoided. (And at any rate, these are the only ones you have control over.) So be mindful this week. Be patient with everything you say and do. Avoid petty arguments with sib-

lings, daily contacts and relatives. Slow down and take it easy. Allow extra time to have some wiggle room for whatever you’re doing. The upside is that this same influence could trigger a genius-like idea. Lord knows you’re the sign who can display genius quality. But anger and rage? Not so smart. Definitely not a genius move. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) The surprises that come your way this week could relate to money, cash flow or something that you own. Your job might be threatened or something you own could be stolen, lost or broken. Whatever happens will be sudden and unexpected. But hey - for some, this could be a car accident and for someone else, it means you burn the toast. It’s all relative. Arguments about money and possessions will only be upsetting - so let that one go. Just move forward. Remember that staying angry is like drinking poison to kill your enemy. Instead focus on all the fun time that you are going to have this year with little vacations or big vacations! You might explore your own city like a tourist or you might go for Baroque.


Chattanooga Aspires to Make “Most Average Cities” List

Chattanooga is no stranger to top five? Hard to believe. Is The Committee to Achieve lists of superlative cities. Our Nashville really more average More Averageness in city is consistently praised for than Chattanooga? Doubtful... Chattanooga is working at an its outdoor culture, tourist attractions and high-speed internet. But what does it take to make the list of “most average cities”? Well, it depends. From a marketing perspective, Peoria (Illinois) used to be considered the ultimate representation of statistical “averageness.” They used to say, “Will it play in Peoria?” Recently, however, other cities have taken the lead in the pursuit of the middle ground... ...Mother Jones magazine’s 2013 list of “most average” cities didn’t even include Peoria. According to MJ, America’s top 10 “most average” cities are: 1. Albany, New York; 2. Rochester, New York; 3. Greensboro, North Carolina; 4. Birmingham, Alabama; 5. Syracuse, New York; 6. Charlotte, North Carolina; 7. Nashville, Tennessee; 8. Springfield, Oregon; 9. Wichita, Kansas; 10. Richmond, Virginia. Even at first glance, there are some obvious problems with this list.

age than Nashville, for example. They’ve got pro football and pro hockey franchises there. Does an average city have that? No way.” And what about the three New York cities in the MJ top five? “Pure Yankee bias,” says Means. We informed him that Mother Jones is based in San Francisco, California. “West coast or east coast,” Means replied. “It’s a definite coastal bias. We intend to stand up for Chattanooga and work with the other fine communities in landlocked states to overcome this.” It’s tough to argue with such average logic... ...Means is quick to say that his group doesn’t think it can become the most average city in America overnight. “It’s a tough challenge,” he admits. “For now we’d settle for being fifth of sixth in the top ten. You know, about average among the most average of the average.” What are CAMAC’s chances of reaching their notso-lofty goal? About average.... - Mark Bedford

A man fooled a town in England into think he was their mayor by setting up a fake Twitter account. A man going by James Billington created the Twitter handle @mayorofStafford with a bio saying he’s, “delighted to be representing the town of Stafford & surrounding areas.” He sent his first tweet on March 8 and the people of Stafford quickly bought into it. Billington staged a ribbon-cutting at a local

theme park and even passed around, “I’m the mayor of Stafford!” buttons. The Stafford town council caught on to the hoax and asked Twitter to shut the account down.

They are enough to fill the whole year, and I can even describe how they die.” There was some giggling, so the unnamed teacher proceeded to list the names of the characters who died in season three of the show.

Anybody who was freaked out by that scene in “Poltergeist” or the entire film “It” can sympathize. Any maybe that is the reason one bizarre, freakshow in New York has chosen to dress up as a clown in order to spook random Staten Islanders. While it’s uncertain who the person is, some witnesses have photographed the facepainted individual wearing a yellow clown suit, white puffy collar, and trademark red nose. He has also been spotted holding green and yellow balloons. Sightings have been reported by the Grasmere and Richmond Valley train stations. Two photos of the oddball have appeared on Instagram, with one showing the clown standing in front of a detour sign. Another image shows him lurking behind a tree. Westerleigh resident Vincent Innocente spotted the clown by the South Shore train station around 8 p.m. “He was just kinda standing there waving like he is in the picture,” he said, calling it very bizarre.

Comparing "Muppets Most Wanted" to Other Movies in the Muppet World There has not been a Muppet movie in theaters since 2011, making "Muppets Most Wanted" a welcome addition to 2014. Muppet fans are true fans and would rather see any new film featuring their silly Muppet friends than not have one at all, no matter how good or bad it is. Luckily, "Muppets Most Wanted" is a fantastic family film that will have people of all ages in stitches. But how does this Muppet movie compare with all the others?

great ratings, this movie set a high bar for "Muppets Most Wanted." Since "Muppets Most Wanted" starts off right where "The Muppets" left off, it was not hard to once again create a puppet movie masterpiece. "The Muppets" is a lot more heartfelt than "Muppets Most Wanted," with most audience members admitting to shedding a tear or

watched Muppet movie of all time, even if it is not considered the best. In "Muppets Take Manhattan," released in 1984, the audience is introduced to the Muppet babies for the first time. And, finally, Miss Piggy marries Kermit The Frog. It seems like people have been waiting forever for these special nuptials between a pig and a frog. The Muppets are known for putting on a great show, ever since their super-popular TV show aired on Sunday nights. Just like with all the other Muppet movies, including "Muppets Most Wanted," they find themselves in heaps of trou-

As far as puppet movies go, even without beloved puppeteer Jim Henson, Muppets are still stealing people's hearts. Each and every Muppet movie is special in its own unique way, and a true Muppet fan loves them all. Breaking the age barriers, "Muppets Most Wanted" is a great family movie that people from ages 2 to 102 will appreciate for years to come, just like its predecessors.

"Muppets Most Wanted" In this eighth Muppet movie, lovingly dubbed Muppets 2.0, the zany gang is back, including Kermit, Fozzie, Piggy, Animal, Gonzo, Beaker, the Babies, Janice, Pepe the King Prawn, Rowlf the Dog, Sam the Eagle, Scooter, The Swedish Chef and even the chickens. They all head out on tour to entertain people around the world. Just as expected, mayhem follows the Muppets to popular tourist destinations in Europe, like London, Madrid and Berlin. With their habit for getting into trouble, the Muppets get mixed up in a jewel heist headed by the worst criminal in the world, Constantine. This evil-doer just happens to look exactly like Kermit, but he is the complete opposite. Laughs ensue with countless celebrity appearances from timeless actors like Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Celine Dion and Ty Burrell. "The Muppets" Released in 2011, "The Muppets" was a long-awaited Muppet movie that raised the roof on the box office. Prior to this movie, fans had not been granted a new Muppets movie since 1999.

"The Muppet Movie"

A comparison of Muppet movies cannot be done without talking about "The Muppet Movie." This "Muppets Take Manhattan" was the very first Muppet feature film, and it is also considered the This is often considered the most- best of all the puppet movies. Hitting the box office in 1979, "The Muppet Movie" was a successful venture, bringing an extremely popular television show to the silver screen. Even now, this is a fantastic movie for kids of all ages, including the grown-up kind. This movie is about a community that comes together, combines their talents and brings joy to the world. The music and celebrity guests are the icing on an already delicious cake. Comparing this movie from 1979 to "Muppets Most Wanted" from 2014 is like comparing a Ford Pinto to a Ford Escape. Both vehicles work well in their respective decades, but the Escape has much better performance and offers an extremely smooth ride due to new advancements in filmmaking.
