President Obama’s State Of The Union Speech was an address that, like the one last month in Kansas, was focused on restoring America’s Economy via not just government investment, but taxes on trade, too. In total, it was a nationalist SOTU, one that called for “nation building” in America, and for Americans of all political parties to work together...

The City of Oakland’s in a bad spot, and this blogger’s not sure if many people in Oakland understand exactly what’s going on. That’s why it’s important to look at the entire 31 minute press conference featuring Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, and then the two “sidebar” videos that are posted below. Oakland is faced with the very real...

It is not easy being a Ravens fan. I am a diehard fan, I watch every game, I listen to Baltimore sports radio and I read about them online. My friends and family know about my purple passion, I wear my heart on my sleeve, I support them through thick and thin and I will always be a fan. Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots was hard to swallow. It was hard to be...

For those who romanticized Ecuador as a fair, democratic country with solid “freedom of the press” laws, much like America, it’s time to wake up. As I have explained in blog posts and video like this one… Ecuador is a corrupt country, where press freedom is nothing more than fantasy. See these excerpts from both the New York Times and Washington...

For the first time in the history of The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, it has a non-Academy Awards night event that has dominated the Twitter Top Trend list. That happened, and is happening, this morning at just after 6 AM PST, as the Academy Awards Nominations Announcement resulted in as many as four Twitter Top Trend keywords: #Oscars, Melissa McCarthy,...

Well, the famous, bombastic music introducing the announcement of the nominees for the 2012 83rd Academy Awards has come and gone, and Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences President Tom Sherak and Winter’s Bone’s Jennifer Lawrence named the major nominees. Of course, there are some surprises, the first being that there are nine movies competing for...

The Academy Awards Nominations for 2012 are just four hours away and you can watch them live here at Zennie62.com. There will be a special live stream screen on the upper right of the blog page, and in this blog post above this text. Oscar nominations ballots were sent out to the over 5,700 members of the Academy last December, and were due back for tally by January...

The more online media and blogging takes over the less objective journalists seem to be. They seem to be competing with the blogs as well as one another to be the most interesting publication or network. var AdBrite_Title_Color = '0000FF'; var AdBrite_Text_Color = '000000'; var AdBrite_Background_Color = 'FFFFFF'; var AdBrite_Border_Color = 'CCCCCC'; var AdBrite_URL_Color...

No more 4-4 behind closed doors. The last time we discussed our two year Oakland City budget, meaning about six months ago, we heard nothing from our city council members for several weeks after the mayor put her proposal forward. Then 4 came up with one plan, and another 4 came up with another plan. Mayor Quan cast the tie breaking vote. She chose the Reid plan, supposedly...

Richmond beats Alameda and Oakland for LBL Second Campus After a tough, competitive battle for the right to play host to the long-planned-for second campus of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, it was announced at 8 AM that Richmond was the winner. Richmond, already location of property and facilities owned by the University of California, beat Alameda, Berkeley,...

Superbowl 2012 is going to be one that goes down in the books as one of the most memorable. We all remember in 2008 when the Patriots had a flawless season, they had 18 wins going into the Super Bowl to compete against the New York Giants who did not have the same pristine record. Unfortunately, that game ended up as the Patriots having 18 wins and one GIANT loss, the...

Today the AFC and NFC Championship Games have started and right now, as of this writing, the Baltimore Ravens Joe Flacco just got sacked by the New England Patriots’ Nosetackle Vince Wilfork. I think the Pats will win because the offense has used the same short-passing approach employed during their 2007 season, where the Pats were one game from being perfect....

By Dr. Bill Chachkes-Executive Editor-Football Reporters Online-special to Zennie62…   It was 1995, and I had just gotten back into coaching after a 7 year absence to obtain 2 graduate degrees. I had just gotten an assistant coaching position (part time) at my old High School where I played 3 seasons and started 2 of them as the teams’  Punter & Kick...

The Panasonic Press Conference at the Consumer Electronics Show was full of surprises, from women’s soccer stars Brandy Chastain, Alex Morgan, and Heather O’Reilly and the announcement that olympic women’s soccer would be telecast in 3D, to MySpace’s move to television (of sorts). But the big deal of the event was the anticipated arrival of mega-star...

The Panasonic, NBC, MySpace, collaboration is an exciting one, with Panasonic and NBC teaming up for the 2012 Olympics and showing support for women’s soccer, and Panasonic and MySpace teaming up to bring MySpace content to the television. But the elephant in the room question was “What’s the future of MySpace.” MySpace was Facebook before Facebook,...

Panasonic, NBC, and MySpace showed their support for women’s sports, and more specifically for women’s soccer when they invited USA Women’s Soccer Stars Heather O’Reilly, Alex Morgan, and Brandy Chastain to the Panasonic Press Conference at the Consumer Electronics Association (CES 2012) Show in Las Vegas. The American sports legends were there...

I have made a Youtube video about how to make an avocado milkshake. Now, it’s not the healthiest thing, but you’d be surprised at how an avocado can be so delicious. This video will show you how to do it yourself and shows the end result. Hope you enjoy, and you can always substitute ingredients to make it healthier or just adjust it to personal preferences....

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo. Fight For The Future is a non-profit that launched its anti-SOPA efforts in December. And while it’s still forming – it seeks a campaign manager as of this writing – it’s marched ahead full steam with its effort to inform the public of the dangers of the bill called Stop...

Robert Scoble has enjoyed the unique status of celebrity tech blogger, arguably the first of his kind. That status was obvious at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, as Mr. Scoble arrived to a rock-star welcome at “CES Ultimate,” the Sunday evening preview of what the World’s largest tech show has to offer. What’s cool about Robert is he’s...

By Dr. Bill Chachkes-Managing Partner/Executive Editor Football Reporters Online   The Giants are one win away from another Super bowl appearance. Let’s let that statement sink in for a moment. The team that few if any gave a chance to in August, September, October, November & December….Is again making noise In January, much like the 2007 Giants. Or are they...

So how does SOPA and PIPA impact you, the individual surfing the web and not necessarily contributing to web sites or doing any business or marketing on the web. Well, according to PC World one of the aspects that could have impacted you the most is being taken out: “The lead sponsor of the U.S. Stop Online Piracy Act, a controversial copyright enforcement bill,...

 NY Giants @ San Francisco  This game has an old school kind of feel to it, between 1981 and 1993 these teams slugged it out in the playoffs 6 times with both teams winning 3 a piece with the likes of Montana, Young & Rice going at it against Simms, Taylor & Ingram. The current versions of these teams produced somewhat of a surprise by winning last week, although...

Here’s a bias blog post on a very hot topic. A topic that I care very much about and am deeply opposed to. The fact that Obama is not going to veto this appalls me and really makes me upset. Nancy Pelosi, Ron Paul, Wikipeda and Twitter are just a few against SOPA. SOPA is the Stop Online Piracy Act. SOPA infringes on the first Amendment hard core. Many sites such...
