This is a vlog unlike any other I’ve made before. The idea is to use a long-standing macroeconomic model called “IS / LM” to explain why the debt limit must be increased by August 2nd 2011. The IS / LM curve was created in 1937 by Sir John Hicks, and has stood the test of time. Why? Because it’s held up under a number of data tests. IS is the...

Peyton Manning Blue Screened – All Head no body! #colts #NFL #nfl Share this:StumbleUponLinkedInRedditTumblrPocketDiggTwitterFacebookGooglePinterestEmailPrint...

The next federation to start play is South America. They do things a bit different down there. All eight teams play in one group the top four moves on and team five plays in another round. They start play 07/10/11. If Uruguay plays the way they did in 2010 they should have no problem be first out of the group. But teams like Argentina and Peru are not going to go quietly....

Peyton Manning has signed a five year contract with the Indiana Colts. The Colts’ Owner Jim Irsay posted on Twitter that Manning would make $90 million in the five year contract and in the first three years Manning will receive $69 million. The Boston Globe reports that Manning’s contract matches that of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Manning,...

As this blog post is written, the San Francisco Marathon is well under way. There are 25,000 runners this year, far more than the 3,000 that were out when I ran it in 2001. And with that many runners brings more demand for web-based updates. Apparently more than the SF Marathon website can handle. At various times this morning, this blogger has tried to visit the site,...

I had the pleasure of meeting rapper Chamillionaire And “Cello” (that’s what he allowed me to call him on video, although I may be busted for it later), at Friday’s TechCrunch Mobile event, just before the rockin August Capital Party that night. We talked about what they’re interested in learning when they, as musicians and rappers, come...

For sci-fi fans like this blogger, owning the Star Trek Blueprints of the late 70s were like owning gold. Now, Star Wars fans can enjoy the same engineering drawings for the Star Wars movies, but with a big difference: the blueprints are real. They’re featured in a giant, $500 book called the Star Wars Blueprint Book and introduced at Comic Con 2011. The big...

Captain America has a new drink made at Searsucker Restaurant, San Diego, and inspired by Comic Con 2011, and called “Captain America.” (And in case you’re wondering, this blogger made over 193 Touts, and has about 150 video files from the Comic Con trip, so more content is coming.) It was introduced to us by the bartenders representing Snake Oil Cocktail...

What spurred this blogger to write the above title is an article in BtoB Magazine called “The Social Life,” by Kate Maddox, and features Cisco Systems employees talking about how Cisco does social media. Yes, Cisco gave this blogger a Flip Video camcorder, yes, this blogger is grateful, but this blogger’s still massively pissed off that Cisco gave up...

Ok FIFA Fans – the Draw has happened. It was a big day for Rio as stars and coaches, media and fans descend there to find out who will play whom. Some games are easy to call other not so much. The USA doesn’t have to play in round 2 but they will have to play in round 3. At the moment the only other team in group A with the US is Jamaica. There are 2 more spots...

Brett Michaels and Tommy Lee are now involved in a federal gun probe after taking photos with some guns while in North Carolina. As you can see in the photo to the left – the two are proud to tote the guns, but unbeknownst to them there is a law in North Carolina saying that anyone with a criminal record may not have a firearm. Craveonline reports: ”...

Amy Winehouse’s family told the British tabloid, The Sun, that she most likely died due to alcohol withdrawals. Further research has suggested that this is in fact a possibility; her detoxification could actually be the reason that she is now dead. The LA Times reports from their interview with Dr. Karen Miotto, medical director of the UCLA Alcoholism and Addiction...

          Another great day for soccer fans; 30 teams from Asia competed in the second leg of round 2. There were some teams that performed great others not so much. Fun fact for you no team that played in one round made it out of round two. I myself found a great steam a got to watch some great games such as the Philippines vs. Kuwait and...

In this Oakland News, Kathy Neal, best known as former Oakland Mayor Elihu Harris’ wife, is reportedly throwing her hat into the 2012 California Assembly District 16 Seat currently held by the legendary (love that word, especially when it’s true) Sandre Swanson, who’s set to be termed-out. Neal, still very politically active, has the full backing of...

That was the title of a lively conversation on, well, Facebook. Adriel Hampton, started the thread because she “was extremely turned off by the mass suspensions.

This was a great idea: to make a deal with a restaurant next to Comic Con, then take out its normal tables and make it into a bar and gaming center. That’s what CNET, the online tech news source, did to Lou and Mickey’s bar and restaurant at 224 5th Avenue in San Diego’s GasLamp District. Lou and Mickey’s is right across the railroad tracks from the...

The Medusa from the movie Bellflower is worth as much, or more in value, than the Black Beauty from The Green Hornet. That means it’s worth about $2 million.

Social Media is valuable. This blogger really worked hard to bring innovative coverage of Comic Con, and to the point of partnering with Tout.com, who sponsored the hotel part of the trip to San Diego. But I didn’t expect to get a year’s worth of free pretzel crisps from Pretzel Crisps! The result of my media objective was 193 Touts over the five-day...

This is the promised 37-minute video of William Shatner’s visit to Comic Con 2011, to talk about his new movie, William Shatner and The Captains, with Scott Bakula, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, Chris Pine.

For the second time in over a year, this blogger paid a visit to the legendary Phil Bronstein, the San Francisco Chronicle‘s Executive Vice President and Editor-At-Large for the last three years. The last time Bronstein and I talked, it was an epic video on Google, Rupert Murdoch, the SF Chronicle, and the media. Epic because it was long and informative. This...
