Sneaker Fiends Unite..

"There’s rules to the come up game. Just because you got some shit on a disco doesn’t mean that you came up. 50% off is not a come up. It’s a nice pick up, but it is NOT a come up. Jerz made this movie so that now you’ll know the deal. "dallas penn

 You can see a piece of this mans performance almost every thursday and Friday at the PSU campus park. He is blaring 80's hair metal and giving it 110%. I have been seeing this man for probably a couple of years now but never had the camera or the time to stop and lurk him and document his abilities. Last thursday that all came to a end.  enjoy.

I imagine this man to be the leader of a troupe of styxx performers that travel the continental United States performing for heads of state and dignitaries.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

"books is like kyrptonite"

Sweet D is an avid reader. We visit the Library atleast once a week.
She came across this book for herself but thought i might enjoy it.
I did.

    Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, in vitro fertilization, and more. Henrietta’s cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can’t afford health insurance.

   This New York Times bestseller takes readers on an extraordinary journey, from the “colored” ward of Johns Hopkins Hospital in the 1950s to stark white laboratories with freezers filled with HeLa cells, from Henrietta’s small, dying hometown of Clover, Virginia, to East Baltimore today, where her children and grandchildren live and struggle with the legacy of her cells. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about the mother she never knew. It’s a story inextricably connected to the dark history of experimentation on African Americans, the birth of bioethics, and the legal battles over whether we control the stuff we’re made of.

app review: World of photo

We made a return to pub quiz this past wednesday. We also returned to our normal and rightful showing at 4th place. We are consistently just good enough to not win any money. We brought icky poopy with us and he was playing with this app where you get random pics from people doing watever from all over the world. Sweet D downloaded it to my phone as I am addicted to taking pics of anything. I havent been able to put it down. Now we both have it downloaded and are spending more time than I thought sending and receiving random pics from all over the world.
(be aware as with most apps or programs where random pics are involved you will receive a fair share of cock shots even when your profile explicitly asks that you not send them. besides that this shizz is pretty fun and addicting).
here is a real review from the Android Guys:

The basic premise is that you are selected at random by anyone else in the world using the app to send them a photo of your choosing. It displays a version of Google maps and your location and then once you take and send the picture it is then rated and commented on. You then spin/shake the phone or select a direction and the app searches for someone who then chooses whether or not to send you a pic (you can choose to “Make Photo” or not by selecting “I’m Busy”). The user is displayed on the map with an icon displaying a little bit of info about them and the photo is sent to you and it is up to you to rate and give feedback. This is repeated. And that’s it.
It may sound tedious but it is actually quite fun. Once you send and receive your first few pics it becomes quite addictive waiting to be chosen or see which pics have been sent to you. The social aspect is that you make comments on the pics and rate them and if people are nice enough, you can meet some interesting people. You will get photos from all around the world and it is fun seeing the lines connecting you to them.

The downside is that people will obviously abuse this kind of app and you can usually tell who these people are just by the usernames (I am not giving any examples here). There is an option to report images but I guess you have to see them first before you report them so I would be careful if minors are using it.

Other than that it’s fun and makes a good use of the camera and can be a nice little time waster.
* This App Was Tested Using: G1 running Cyanogen
* Presentation: Uses a version of Maps as its main screen with nice added visuals.
* Value: Great value (free) although there is a donate version available also.
* Stability/Resources: Not one FC and just a little lag when sending photo but this is minimal.
* Bottom line: A good app that makes good use of the camera and fun way to help pass the time.

here are some of the photos that I have received that were worth saving. you win some you lose some playing this game.
