Chris of the Day: Senator Chris Dodd (Connecticut)

Senator Chris Dodd (Connecticut)
Sen. Dodd Announces Legislation to Reimburse Troops for Purchasing Essential Safety Equipment
September 29, 2005: “The United States government has few higher priorities than the safety and well-being of U.S. troops deployed in harm’s way. In my view, that starts with equipping them with the gear they need to operate safely and successfully,” said Dodd. “But when it comes to backing our troops in this way, the Administration is either showing complete incompetence or utter indifference. That’s why I’m once again introducing legislation to allow for our troops, their family members and others to be reimbursed for critical safety equipment used in Iraq and Afghanistan. We shouldn’t have to introduce a law for this to happen. America can do better and it must.”

E=MC2 turns 100! – New York Times

(Hard to believe it has only been around a century….cd)
That Famous Equation and You – New York Times
DURING the summer of 1905, while fulfilling his duties in the patent office in Bern, Switzerland, Albert Einstein was fiddling with a tantalizing outcome of the special theory of relativity he’d published in June. His new insight, at once simple and startling, led him to wonder whether “the Lord might be laughing … and leading me around by the nose.”
But by September, confident in the result, Einstein wrote a three-page supplement to the June paper, publishing perhaps the most profound afterthought in the history of science. A hundred years ago this month, the final equation of his short article gave the world E = mc².

Monkeys Pay to See Female Monkey Bottoms

(the part they leave out of this story is that some monkeys spend a lot of time surfing the net for sexy monkey pictures they don’t have to pay for….cd)
Monkeys Pay to See Female Monkey Bottoms
Monkeys Pay to See Female Monkey Bottoms
By Robert Roy Britt
LiveScience Senior Writer
Would you pay to see a monkey’s backside? I hope not. Monkeys will, and I guess that’s okay, though it sounds awfully close to the sort of thing that lands guys in jail here in the human realm.
A new study found that male monkeys will give up their juice rewards in order to ogle pictures of female monkey’s bottoms. The way the experiment was set up, the act is akin to paying for the images, the researchers say.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – As
CIA Director Porter Goss tries to rebuild the agency’s global operations, he faces a shortage of experienced spies created by a post-September 11 stampede to the private sector, current and former intelligence officials say.

Chris Byrd is the IBF Heavy Weight Champion of Boxing.
Byrd defends his crown against DaVarryl Williamson Saturday on SHOWTIME (9:15 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the west coast). In the co-feature on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING, James Toney risks his IBA heavyweight belt against DaVarryl Williamson.
Said Byrd:
“I have always been willing to fight anybody, from No, 15 on up, and that is still the case. I just want to fight.
“It is frustrating I have been off for so long because I have wanted to fight. I was willing to go to Germany if that would have been the deal.
“This is going to be a very good fight. DaVarryl has a big punch and I know he will come in determined.
“This will be a great challenge, but I am always willing to accept a challenge.’’

good friends
Okay, here it is. We were walking through the healthfood isle at the grocery store the other day and I saw this. I was cracking up and don’t know if anyone really understood why. First of all, look at the box. This cereal is being marketed to aging, white, liberal, baby boomers. There is no doubt about that in my mind. That is funny in itself. Second is the tagline. Trio of flakes, twigs, and Granola….okay, do people actually eat twigs? I thought only panda bears did that…and finally, I pictured these three guys on the box instead of the happy aging multi ethnic good friends…
Am I the only one that finds this funny?

Countdown to Liberian election Oct 11 – when "masses" turn into "asses"

(I have a personal interest in Sierra Leone, which is struggling to get back on its feet after 10+ yrs of brutality. Political and economic instability in neighboring Guinea and Liberia threaten Sierra Leone’s recovery.
Here is a great update on the current situation in Liberia [see last week’s post on presidential candidate Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf]. -kg)
“Liberian politicians call people ‘the masses’ when they are still seeking their votes, but once they are elected, they will remove the ‘m’ from the masses and call them ‘the asses’,” says James Murray, a company messenger amidst the frantic election campaigning.
This scepticism of the political establishment stems from more than 150 years of chronic bad governance, corruption, ethnic exploitation – and an infrastructure and economy ruined by 14 years of civil war.
The guns may now be silent, and refugees returning to their homes following the 2003 peace deal which saw former President Charles Taylor exit to Nigeria and the arrival of some 15,000 United Nations peacekeepers, but Liberians are frustrated with their lot.
Monrovia has been without electricity and water for over a decade. There are tens of thousands of teenagers who have never seen electric light.
