LEAD STORY - IMMINENT VORTEX OF DAMNATION

--Land developers for the iconic Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colo. (famous as the inspiration for the hotel in Stephen King’s “The Shining”) announced recently that they need more space and thus will dig up and move the hotel’s 12-gravesite pet cemetery. Neighbors told the Fort Collins Coloradoan in September that they feared the construction noise, but somehow ignored the potential release of departed spirits (though an “Animal Planet” “dog psychic” who lives in Estes Park seemed to volunteer her services to calm the pets’ souls).

ADVICE OF COUNSEL -- After consulting with a lawyer, Evan Dobelle, president of Massachusetts’ Westfield State University, accused of billing the state for unauthorized travel expenses, is reportedly considering claiming that he actually “self-reported” the violations as soon as suspicions turned up. Dobelle says he would thus be entitled to the protection of the state “whistleblower” statute, which shields inside informers when they expose wrongdoing. (Dobelle was placed on paid leave in October.) -- In September, landlord Elwyn Gene Miller, 64, went on trial in Iowa City, Iowa, for spying on tenants in the small apartment building he owns -- after apparently having constructed peepholes allowing him views into bathrooms and other areas, and having been spotted climbing from a crawl space after accessing one peephole. Nonetheless, as Miller’s lawyer pointed out, the law applies only to peeping for “sexual gratification,” and there is no “first-hand knowledge or observation” that Miller was “aroused” at the time he was spotted. (At press time, the judge was mulling a decision.) -- William Woodward of Titusville, Fla., awaiting trial on two murder counts in September, might normally have a weak defense under the state’s “stand your ground” law (which requires an “imminent” threat of a forcible felony) because evidence indicates that any threats against him were made previously and not at the time of the shooting. However, in a court filing, Woodward’s lawyers justified the pre-emptive ground-standing by referring to the “Bush Doctrine” employed by the U.S. in invading Iraq in 2003 (the U.S. “standing its ground” against Iraqi weapons of mass destruction). (The judge promised a ruling by November.)

LATEST HUMAN “RIGHT”

--In September, an appeals tribunal reinstated Gwent, Wales, police officer Shaun Jenkins, 36, who was fired in 2010 for having sex with a woman while on duty. The head of a police court concluded that Jenkins was on an authorized break at the time -- no more improper than stopping for “a spot of tea.” (Investigators originally found it appalling that Jenkins was out of uniform during the escapade, but he pointed out that his gun remained on his person at all times, albeit down around his ankles.)

PEOPLE WITH ISSUES

--Among the many arrested recently for having solitary sex in public was Philip Milne, 74, ultimately convicted in the U.K.’s Bedford Magistrates’ Court of touching himself on a transit bus although he claimed he was merely “shampooing” his troubled genital area and resented “being treated like a hardened criminal.” Also, Stuart Clarke, 48, of Provo, Utah, had explaining to do after an incident on Delta Air Lines in 2012. He said that he was rubbing his exposed penis only because it burned from accidental contamination with peppermint oil (which so distressed him that, upon landing, he left behind a checked bag). The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force found that out and is currently investigating whether there is more to the “peppermint oil” story than embarrassment-avoidance

IRONIES

--The city council in Washington City, Utah, recently approved the construction of a firing range next to the Dixie GunWorx shop, even though the firing range’s neighbor on the other side is a women’s domestic-abuse shelter (whose officials fear that gunfire might retraumatize some of the victims who had sought refuge). Dixie’s CEO hinted to KSTU-TV that if the shelter victims had been armed in the first place, they could have prevented the abuse.

COMPELLING EXPLANATIONS

-- Perfect Sense: A 77-year-old motorist told police in Kagawa Prefecture, Japan, that he was going the wrong way on the Takamatsu Expressway only because he had missed his exit 1 km back and thought it best just to turn the car around and retrace the path back to the ramp. Police said his short September jaunt had caused a collision, not affecting the man’s own car. -- Lame: In October, Jeffrey Laub, 39, was sentenced on several traffic charges, including leading police on a 111 mph, “Dukes of Hazzard-style” chase through Logan Canyon near Logan, Utah, with the explanation only that he needed an emergency restroom because of something he ate. Judge Thomas Willmore called the excuse “one of the worst” he had heard, since Laub had passed several public toilets during the chase. (2) Riverview, Fla., schoolteacher Ethel Anderson, 31, was convicted in September of having sex with a 12-year-old boy she was tutoring, despite her attempt to explain the key evidence -- “hundreds” of sexual text messages -- as mere “rewards” to get his attention and encourage progress in math.

A NEWS OF THE WEIRD CLASSIC

--It’s the “holy grail” of beers, said a Boston pub manager, but still, only 60,000 cases a year of Westvleteren are brewed because the Belgian Trappist monks with the centuries-old recipe refuse to expand their business (and even take to the phones to harass black- marketers). Westvleteren is sold only at the monastery gate, by appointment, with a two-case-a-month limit, at a price that’s reasonable for retail beer, but anyone who gets it from a re-seller will pay 10 times that much. Producing more, said Brother Joris, to a Wall Street Journal reporter in November (2007), “would interfere with our job of being a monk.” Furthermore, said Brother Joris, referencing the Bible, “(I)f you can’t have it, possibly you do not really need it

LEAST COMPETENT CRIMINALS

--(1) A Tucson, Ariz., man apparently escaped a traffic stop in August, but not unscathed. After fleeing to a dead-end street, he climbed out the passenger window, but his foot got caught, and his still-moving car’s back tire ran over his sprawled torso. The motorcycle officer was not able to catch the injured man, who staggered off into the neighborhood. (2) Lucas Burke, 21, and Ethan Keeler, 20, attempting to break into a safe at New Yard Landscaping in Hopkinton, N.H., in October, possibly seeking drug money, unwisely chose to use an acetylene torch. Included in the safe’s contents was a supply of consumer fireworks, and, according to the police report, the resultant explosion “blew their bodies apart.”

H O LY M OTH E R O F PEAR L JAM!!

Seattle Rockers Take Philly By Storm! And so do A.J. and Mitch!

Pearl Jam from left: Stone Gossard, Matt Cameron, Eddie Vedder, Jeff Ament, Mike McCready, Boom Gaspar

Lights out at 8:30! Wells Fargo Center went berserk! Pearl Jam took the stage and started with “Pendulum”, a slower tune from the new album, “Lightning Bolt.” Later in the evening, Eddie Vedder would mimic a pendulum by swinging from one of the many lights dangling from the stage trusses. I thought it an odd choice for an opener but there was a method to Pearl Jam’s madness as the drama continued to unfold throughout the evening. For three solid hours, we were treated to incredible sound, incredible guitars, particularly from Mike McCready and pounding drums from Matt Cameron. Vedder made a reference to playing the last concert at The Spectrum and “tearing it down.” He told the audience at Wells Fargo

Center, “Let’s tear this place down, too.” That they did. Pearl Jam is regarded as one of the greatest rock and roll bands ever and a link from the classic and punk rock of the 70s and 80s to the alt/grunge era of the 90s and into the 21st century. A.J. and I were pretty much speechless by the time it was all over – mouths agape at the spectacle we just witnessed. Coincidentally, all last week, Jimmy Fallon featured Pearl Jam Week on Late Night with a live performance by the band on Thursday night and Fox has been playing Pearl Jam songs going into the commercial breaks for The World Series. In Philly, it was pandemonium Pearl Jam-mania. And now, I get it. Happy Birthday to me.

Today is my birthday! Oh, goodie! I hope it’s a happy one! My primary birthday present comes from my wife, Donna, in the form of lower level tickets for tonight’s NBA season opener for the Philadelphia 76ers versus the dreaded two-time, back-to-back NBA Champion Miami Heat at Wells Fargo Center in Philly. Great way to start a season of futility with a certain draft lottery pick in their near future. As I ponder what lies ahead with King James and company most likely routing my not-sotalented Sixers, it occurs to me that Seattle lost their NBA franchise. The SuperSonics skipped town, moving to Oklahoma City where they are now the Thunder. As Sixers radio play-by-play man, Tom McGinnis, might say, “Are you kiddin’ me??” Things could be worse. At least my team is still in existence although that’s debatable based on their recent win-loss record. Ironically, it was another gift, presented by dear friends, Marty and Shirley Selgrath of Quakertown, that would afford me the chance to see five guys from Seattle (plus a sixth man) blow out the crowd at Wells Fargo Center last Monday. But it wasn’t some defunct basketball team from “Space Jam.” It was the first night of a two nights of PEARL JAM!! This concert may be considered blasé to some but not for me. This was my first Pearl Jam show. The wedding gift was a pair of luxury suite tickets to Monday’s show. Are you kiddin’ me?? My wife was under the weather last Monday night and encouraged me to invite a buddy to take her place. Without hesitation, I shot a text over to A.J. Fritz. Surely, he would want to see Pearl Jam. I texted, “Let’s get together. Mon, Oct 21 – Pearl Jam at Wells Fargo Center in luxury suite! Sound good?” His response: “Yeah, sounds great…never seen Pearl Jam.” Game on! We made plans to be on the road by 5PM. A.J. brought his iPod along so we had a Fritz Rocks shuffle mix for the ride. We marveled at the Apple device docking station that was tucked away in the center console of my wife’s Jetta. Didn’t know that was there. What a convenient option! The drive to the sports complex was over before we knew it. We pulled into the Wells Fargo Center parking lot and decided to take a walk over to xfinity Live to enjoy a few beverages before the show. We blazed a path, cutting through the tailgaters in Lot H, heading for the mass of humanity partying on the very spot where the 76ers used to play when The Spectrum stood there. xfinity Live was packed with Pearl Jam fans and we soaked up the festive atmosphere. I thought, “How could people who listen to the dark, brooding, angry music of Pearl Jam be so happy? Sure glad we’re not in Seattle. All things considered, I’d rather be in Philadelphia!” A video of a Pearl Jam concert was being shown up on the massive flat screens both inside and out and that spoiled it for me a little. I didn’t want to have to watch the video when I was going to see the real thing in an hour. But no one there was going to change the channel to watch Monday Night Countdown on ESPN. xfinity Live was overrun with rock and rollers of all ages, shapes and sizes and that was gratifying to see. We rolled out of the madhouse that is xfinity Live and made our way back to Wells Fargo Center. The atmosphere was intoxicating and I was excited to be a part of it and to have my good friend, Fritz, along for the ride. We strode purposefully through the turnstiles toward the escalator to the suite level. We arrived at Suite 10 where Marty and Shirley were waiting for us. And there we would wait for another hour. We couldn’t risk not being there right at 7:30 but we understood the delayed start to give the city folks a little more time to file into the building. So we killed an hour with The Selgraths enjoying complimentary food and beverages. How “suite” it was!

THE VALLEY BEAT OCTOBER 30, 2013

Bush, and Rage Against the Machine (just to name a few). One of the main bands I left out was Stone Temple Pilots. I was shocked that I left them out of my list because back in the day I was actually a pretty big fan of the band. I had all their 90s releases, with the exception of No. 4. While coming up with this list, I realized that a lot of the bands that achieved fame early in the 90s had some major troubles along the way. Case in point: Stone Temple Pilots. Originally, I thought the new effort from STP would be an easy review because it’s only a five song EP. Even though the entire album is just over 15 minutes long, there is enough there to create a topic of discussion that could last for hours. The road that the band is on has been a rocky one, and as guitarist Dean Deleo mentioned in a recent interview with Ultimate Guitar, the problems have been occurring since 1992 with the release of their debut album, Core. When asked if he realized a long time ago that frontman Scott Weiland either had to get it together or it was going to end, Deleo responded by saying, “I think everyone did whatever they could. I’m talking wives, brothers, friends and everyone.” This could be in reference to Weiland’s substance abuse problems which have plagued him for many years, leading to a discord within the band. Ultimately, the constant battling between Weiland and the rest of his bandmates led to his firing last February. I relate this to getting back together with an ex. No matter how much you want it to work, and try to make it work, it will never be the same as it used to be when you first got together; there was just too much baggage between Weiland and the rest of STP. This is where Linkin Park’s frontman Chester Bennington comes into play. He has always been a big fan of STP, often warming up for Linkin Park concerts by singing STP songs. He even stated in an interview a few years ago that singing for STP was his lifelong dream. Though details are vague, Chester was asked to be the new vocalist for the band, obviously he obliged. They then embarked on a US tour (which included a show at the Sands Bethlehem If I asked you to name the top five bands from the 90s, which ones would come to mind first? Event Center) and just released a five song Would you immediately say Alice in Chains or Nirvana? Maybe even Smashing Pumpkins or Green Day? I was asked this question a few weeks ago, and even though it’s extremely difficult to pick just five, my list was as follows: Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Offspring, and Nirvana. I might have been a little biased here because I have always been more of a fan of punk than of grunge/ alternative, but still I thought this was a fair assessment of what was popular in the 90s. The person who asked me this question pointed out that I forgot numerous bands including Alice in Chains,

EP entitled, High Rise. Instead of picking out noteworthy songs like I would normally do, I will just go through and review each song. “Out of Time” was the EP’s first release and gave listeners a taste of the new incarnation of STP. It has your typical hooking Dean Deleo guitar riff with Chester’s vocals sounding virtually identical to that of his predecessor. This song did not blow me away. However, their second release, “Black Heart,” had a more hard rock feel to it and sounded eerily similar to the band’s earlier retro rock single, “Big Bang Baby.” Though the song is very upbeat, the lyrics tell the story of a man who becomes so enraged with jealousy that he kills his lover. This is evident in the lines, “Face like an angel / mind of a killer / nobody else gonna love her better.” Look out for a music video for this in the near future. “Same On The Inside” is the first song to make me feel as though Bennington is actually creating his own style in the band and not just a fill-in trying to copy Weiland. His voice is also a lot less whiny on this track. The bluesy “Cry Cry” has a very catchy chorus and good beat. It sounds like something that The Black Keys would have put out. “Tomorrow” is a slower tempo-ed love song with an engaging Deleo riff. I got bored halfway through this three minute song. It has been indicated that there is a full length with Chester on the horizon. This could prove difficult because the band is currently without a record label. Even if this holds true, they are going to have to amp things up a bit to create their own sound. To me, this just sounds like a watered down version of STP. There is nothing that really grabs and holds the attention of the listener. At this point, STP is just holding on to their name. If this were some band that no one ever heard of, would anyone give two craps about their music? Probably not. However, there is some potential here. With Chester’s vocal talent and song writing ability, coupled with Deleo’s masterful guitar riffs they could create something truly unique. But until then this just seems like a Stone Temple Pilots cover band to me.

PLOT: When a young boy’s mother is sentenced to prison, it is up to good old Grandpa to bring the child to his no good father. As the two share a prank fueled road trip, they find an unexpected bond through a series of wildly funny pranks on a clueless public. REVIEW: At one point in the latest prank fueled hijinks adventure from Johnny Knoxville there is a real sense of danger. It involves an actor playing an abusively hateful dad who displays his lack of tolerance in front of the wrong crowd. It is such an unnerving scene that I found it hard to believe the prank wasn’t completely staged. Certainly it isn’t a first to wonder how on earth something doesn’t go horribly wrong in prankster cinema, yet this was particularly tense. This awe-inspired insanity helps make BAD GRANDPA a shockingly funny ninety minutes that will have you shaking your head at the unbelievably bold humor which plays out. Even still you may find yourself rooting for the films odd couple leading men, Irving Zisman (Knoxville) and his grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll).

REDLIGHT KING IRONS IN THE FIRE

With the previous JACKASS films – as well as the MTV series – the comedy relied simply on the pranks or stunts. What sets BAD GRANDPA aside is the inclusion of a narrative. The story revolves around a young boy named Billy whose mother is going to prison. Thankfully Grandpa steps in in order to bring him to his father. The parents are the epitome of white trash and of course Gramps is far from the greatest role model. As the two travel cross country, they get into a number of strange and oftentimes hilarious adventures. As outrageous as Knoxville may be, this entire experiment would not have worked nearly this well if it wasn’t for Nicoll. The young actor – who had previously appeared in FUN SIZE with Knoxville – connects almost too well with the “86 year old” whom he takes this journey with. And yes, the kid steals the show. As we get to know both Billy and Grandpa, there are a number of scenes of the two together in a car usually getting on each other’s nerves. This is the only time where the film sometimes doesn’t live up to its potential. The two actors work extremely well together, yet these bits of dialogue lack genuine heart and occasionally feel like filler. We get early on that Gramps is a jerk of an old man who begins to really truly love his grandkid so there is nothing all that surprising or impactful here. In fact, the moments when they are not annoying each other and suddenly become a “team” of sorts, it worked far better. Even still, what we really want to see is a series of outrageous antics that will have us laughing in the aisles and thankfully there is enough of that. This year there have been a handful of really terrific comedies including THE WORLD’S END as well as THIS IS THE END. And while BAD GRANDPA may not be my favorite of the three I have to say if you are in the mood to just laugh, this is simply the funniest movie of the year. Knoxville is of course terrific as Zisman – a character he has taken on a number of times in the past – but it is young Jackson Nicoll’s fearless performance that really steals the show. It is also exciting to see Knoxville and company expand the idea behind JACKASS and create a story that mostly works. In the end, Irving Zisman and Billy make for a uniquely entertaining modern day “Odd Couple” with tons of the trashy stuff that JACKASS fans have come to expect.

(StatePoint) From selfies to portraits of lunch, more people these days are taking photographs in more places. But there’s a big difference between great photos and throwaways -- and a big difference between great photographers and anybody with a smartphone.

adds depth and scale. Look for a high vantage point, such as a balcony or rooftop. Study the light, especially when shooting from high angles. Shadows can be your best friend, and make for very interesting photos.

But don’t despair. “Anyone can learn to take better photos,” says Lucas Gilman, a professional adventure photographer whose work for such magazines as National Geographic and Sports Illustrated has taken him all over the globe.

Protect “Photography is about making a fleeting moment permanent, whether it’s a kayaker hurtling over a waterfall or the look on your daughter’s face when she opens that gift she’s been hoping for all year,” says Gilman. “These events can’t be recreated. Reliable photo storage is critical for protecting your work.”

Gilman is offering photographers of all levels tips for producing more compelling photography: Don’t Wait Shoot images in the moment. Never put anything off until tomorrow. The weather could change, the leaves on the trees could blow. Anything that can happen will. Think Narrow When photographing a scene that mixes bright and dark, the camera will lose much of the detail and you’ll end up with overexposed white and underexposed black. Working the Subject Once you’ve found your spot and the light is right: shoot, shoot, shoot. Take different shots from different angles and unusual viewpoints. “Don’t be afraid to take ten shots and edit out nine later,” says Gilman. “SanDisk Compact Flash and SD cards are super affordable these days.” More information can be found at www.sandisk.com.

A reliable external hard drive data back-up system allows you to seamlessly transfer and store all your digital content with one system. For example, the Evolution Series with Thunderbolt from G-Technology lets you capture, transfer, edit and distribute media files all within a single storage system. Whether you’re traveling, or at home editing your photos, a high-performance external hard drive can make working with your photos easier. More information can be found at www.g-technology.com And you can simplify the task with Time Machine backup, which works with Mac computers to automatically back up files. For more photography tips and talk, follow Gilman at www.Twitter.com/ lucasgilman Don’t settle for fuzzy, uninteresting images. By paying attention to light and being persistent, you can take a better photo. Just be sure to protect and store your work!

Graffiti Street Art By Camille Capriglione

uses props. His work is highly sought after. Graffiti is here to stay. Books have been written about it. Video games glamorize it. And a glossary of terms, such as ‘tagging’ ‘bombing’ and ‘wildstyle’ have become graffiti vernacular. It is the art form of the voiceless, the underdog, the silent oppressed who have much to say. No longer mere scrawled script, but exotic murals and stunning visual landscapes, which can take one’s breath away.

“Graffiti is revolutionary, and any revolution might be considered a crime. People who are oppressed or suppressed need an outlet, so they write on walls—it’s free.” Terrance Lindall, artist. Graffiti, a drawing that is sprayed illicitly on a public surface, has existed since ancient times. It dates back to Egypt, Greece, and the Roman Empire. Its longevity makes it no surprise that something regarded as social vandalism has evolved into an impressive urban art form. Graffiti comes from the Italian word graffiato. Ancient graffiti, marked in chalk or coal, displayed phrases of love, political rhetoric and simple thoughts. There was even graffiti in the ancient buried city of Pompeii, which included curses, spells, declarations of passion, alphabets, political slogans and literary quotes. Today, much controversy surrounds graffiti, which is strongly reviled by some. This creates disagreement between law enforcement and graffiti artists who wish to display their work in public places. In most countries, painting property without the owner’s consent is considered vandalism, a punishable crime. Gangs often use graffiti to mark territory or to indicate gang-related activities. Yet despite the controversy, it is a rapidly developing stylistic art form that is highly valued. Graffiti is very symbolic. It can commemorate the love between a couple, or the death of a loved one. American graffiti is most often associated with hip-hop culture and New York City subways. But graffiti has long appeared on buildings, bathrooms, railroad cars and bridges since the early 1900’s. It gained momentum during WWII when the popular phrase “Kilroy Was Here,” with its accompanying quirky cartoon, spread through pop culture. The invention of

aerosol paint changed the graffiti method to what we are familiar with today. The rock and roll culture of the 1970’s had its own graffiti sub genre, as well as hard core punk in the 1980’s. The 80’s also brought graffiti to certain art galleries in the Bronx and the East Village of Manhattan. Keith Haring was a beloved New York artist whose universal, faceless and colorful beings painted on the sides of buildings became known the world over. All modern countries have graffiti in some form. Some allow it, such as Taiwan, whose government has made concessions and developed “graffiti zones.” Other countries do not - former Prime Minister Tony Blair signed a charter stating that graffiti is not art but a crime. Interestingly, the UK has produced one of the most famous underground artists, ‘Banksy.’ Bansky has revolutionized graffiti style by using stencils, which aid in the speed of his painting. His work is satirical and political and he often


THE VALLEY BEAT OCTOBER 30, 2013

ZODIAC

ARIES (3/21 – 4/19) Take a big chance or make public some bit of information you’ve been saving for just the right moment. It should go quite well! The middle part of the week might see you head to the doctor’s office, or at least think about making an appointment -- though the odds are good that your fears, if any, are unfounded. If you want to start any new ventures, save them for the second half of the week. Your ability to read new partners and others should make it easy to choose correctly.

LIBRA (9/23 - 10/22) Your creative energy is fully engaged this week, and you should make the most of it! You may feel the urge to redecorate or otherwise change up the way things look. On Tuesday and Wednesday, you are almost certainly dealing with responsibilities that feel a little overwhelming, but only because you haven’t figured out the limits yet. Think it all through and things should be fine in the long run. Good energy floods into your life in the second half of the week, and that makes it much easier for you to find time for all the most important people in your life.

TAURUS (4/20 – 5/20) Try to get your most important people to reiterate their commitment to you and all should be well. Tuesday and Wednesday see a blossoming of your personal energy, and you should be able to really enjoy your surroundings and activities. Branch out and try something new! Coworkers or neighbors brighten your days in some surprising ways during the latter half of the week, so make sure to return the favor as soon as possible!

SCORPIO (10/23 - 11/21) Keep it low-key early this week -- you need to avoid the appearance of hogging the stage or otherwise taking more than your share of the attention. It may be tough, but it’s worth it. Things get much better on Tuesday, and you are privy to secret information that makes the next couple of days quite interesting -- and kind of fun, in a naughty sort of way. Open up discussions later in the week, as you need to get some ideas out in the open and start vetting them for future use. Your people should be up for it!

GEMINI (5/21 – 6/21) You’ve had at least one great idea pop into your head lately; now is the time to bring it to life. You should get all the support you need. Watch out for gossips or worse midweek -- people seem all too eager to insinuate themselves into other people’s business. Walk away as soon as you see it. Though your mind is filled with good energy later in the week, especially Saturday, you might find yourself a bit stressed out by big decisions, which are harder than usual. CANCER (6/22 – 7/22) Be firm with family members! You need to deal with the aftermath of a lengthy work session or party on Tuesday and Wednesday, but it’s easier than usual to clean up and return your world to its proper working order. Work closely with your mate or business partner this weekend, and you should find new strengths building up between you. It’s a good time to leave at least a little bit unsaid.

Page 32

LEO (7/23 - 8/22) Your great energy helps you take care of any problems before they get out of control, and you should get the respect you know you deserve. Spend some time in the middle of the week thinking through your plans for the year, because your mind is better able to see how it meshes with your expectations. You may need to adjust your ambitions somewhat. Once you know what’s coming next, you can snap into action on Friday and carry your big plans through the weekend at least. VIRGO (8/23 - 9/22) You should feel free to take all the time you need on Monday to plot out the rest of the week. You’re more likely to get everything done if you’ve got it all scheduled out, even if that means Monday isn’t productive. Your energy midweek is perfect for following through and organizing, so you can be confident that you should more than make up for any slacking earlier. Watch out for big decisions later in the week, especially in the early weekend -it’s hard to pick between your various options.

SAGITTARIUS (11/22 - 12/21) It all comes down to your great energy! You may feel that it’s unfair, but you also know that it all comes close to evening out in the long run. In fact, as early as Tuesday, you may find yourself passed up for a raise or promotion. Midweek isn’t a good time for advancement, but you can at least hold your ground. The latter half of the week puts you back in the center of attention, and you ought to be able to impress a few people with your answers to their tough questions. CAPRICORN (12/22 - 1/19) You’ve got a difficult problem involving sharing resources and almost nobody is going to be happy with the final results. That’s better than some being happy and others being irate, though! You feel grounded after dealing with that issue, and should be able to connect with people in a positive way through the middle part of the week. Work issues may arise on Thursday or Friday that require far more attention than they are really worth -- but it’s unavoidable, and you may need to work through the weekend. AQUARIUS (1/20 - 2/18) Tensions lead to discoveries, so don’t be afraid of confrontation. In fact, you may want to instigate something just to see what happens -- at worst, you just have to apologize and move on. Things aren’t quite what they seem in the middle of the week, but a bit of careful You’re tempted to try something new and daring over the weekend, and your great mental and social energies should make it a no-brainer: Go for it! PISCES (2/19 - 3/20) Work can be almost impossible on Monday -- especially if you have to collaborate or deal with too many meetings. Your coworkers seem to be taking out all their aggression on you, though you can avoid it if you’ve got a door to shut. Things get much better overnight, and you ought to be able to get a jump on your rivals as long as you don’t let yourself over think your position. On Thursday, you see an opportunity to help someone in need and should take it, as it may turn into something much bigger as the week draws to a close.

sexucation Digital Dating

In the early part of the last decade, on-line dating, or “e-dating,” was considered by some to be taboo. But since the early 2000s, e-dating went from being frowned upon to part of the norm, as more people— disgusted by more traditional forms of courtship—turned to the internet to find love. Today, there are a myriad of specialized dating sites . . . everything Kenny Luck from “Cupidtino,” a site that caters to Apple users, to “Crew Dating,” a site where pilots and flight attendants can go to find a significant other. And with the online dating industry making big bucks from all of this (In the United States, the online dating industry made a 2-billion-dollar profit in 2010), I wonder: Is e-dating an effective way to find a mate? The results seem mixed. On the one hand, the often quoted statistic, “One in five people meet online,” is, for the most part, correct. What’s more, one study by Stanford University’s Michael Rosenfeld found that “those who met online were twice as likely to marry as those who met offline.” On the other hand, though, some argue that online dating is killing commitment. Clare Goldwin, for instance, a writer for the London Daily Mail, argues in an April 2013 article that “. . . easy-come, easy-go internet romance can ruin your chances of a lasting relationship.” Goldwin believes that online dating is, generally speaking, not the best way to find a partner. Other drawbacks abound, too.

Has Opiate Addiction Ruined Your Life? According to Plenty of Fish (POF) founder Markus Frind, most people seeking an “Intimate Encounter” on POF are “. . . a bunch of horny men talking to a bunch of horny men pretending to be women.” In other words, most attractive women on the site who are looking for a hook up are, in fact, men using fake profiles.

Page 38

Online Dating Statics: • 1 in 5 couples meet online • in 2010, the online dating industry made $2 billion dollars • the average online dater pays between $20 and $60 dollars per month • Match.com is the world’s largest online dating site with more than 17 million users a month With online dating in general, too, men often exaggerate their income by 20 percent and their height by 2 inches, according to one analysis by OkCupid, a free online dating site. Lying on online dating profiles seems regrettably common among men, a practice that undermines honesty and progress all together. Pros and cons exist with online dating. If you’re going to do it, I would suggest moving ahead with cautious optimism, and consider the data.

Loud, Mad or Sad? The psychology instructor had just finished a lecture on mental health and was giving an oral test. Speaking specifically about manic depression, she asked, “How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next?” A young man in the rear raised his hand and answered, “A basketball coach?” Pennsylvania Crazy Laws No more than two packages of beer at a time may be purchased, unless you are buying from an official “beer distributor” You may not catch a fish by any body part except the mouth. Looking for more dumb laws? Check out DumbLaws.com! Motorized vehicles are not to be sold on Sundays. You may not catch a fish with your hands. It it illegal to sleep on top of a refrigerator outdoors. You may not sing in the bathtub. Fireworks stores may not sell fireworks to Pennsylvania residents. Dynamite is not to be used to catch fish. It is illegal to have over 16 women live in a house together because that constitutes a brothel. However up to 120 men can live together, without breaking the law. From Bad to Worse! A police officer had just pulled a car over. When he walked up to the car a man rolled down the window and said, “what’s the problem officer?” To which the policeman responded, “I stopped you for running that red light behind you.” Just then the man’s wife leaned forward from the driver’s seat and said with a very loud voice, “I told him to stop at that light. But did he listen? No. He just kept right on going.” The man then turned to his wife and yelled “Shut up stupid!” The policeman continued, “And just before the light I clocked you doing 50 m.p.h. and the speed limit is only 30.” His wife then leaned forward again and squawked “I told him to slow down. But did he listen to me. No! He never listens to me.”

Page 44

And again the man shouted at his wife “Listen stupid, I told you to SHUT UP!” The policeman then looked at the woman and said “does he always talk to you this way?” To which the woman responed, “Only when he has been drinking.”
