Vikings To Play Last Game In Metrodome

WCCO | CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — It’s the last hurrah for the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.

Sunday’s game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions marks the last time the public will enter the downtown Minneapolis stadium before it’s demolished, a process that starts next month with the deflation of its iconic roof.

The Metrodome opened in 1982. For many years it was home to both the Vikings and baseball’s Minnesota Twins, who won two World Series there but moved across town to Target Field in 2010.

The Vikings will mark the end of the dome after Sunday’s game with an on-field ceremony featuring retired players and star running back Adrian Peterson. The Metrodome site will be home to the new Vikings stadium, which is scheduled to be ready for play by the 2016 season.

The reason why I write

Espen Stenersrød- From Pen To Heart

End of the year reflections

Why do I write? ThIMAG0117e question comes to me often, and is also one of the most frequent questions I get. It always stumps me a bit, but I know it to well. I write because there will never exist a day or a reality where I can´t. There can be days and even weeks where I am occupied by “life” where I am not able to write, but I have to keep that to a minimum. I feel awful, almost sick, the moment I am not able, or are hindered to write. A life without writing would not be much of a life for me. My writing sessions are my time off, my way out, the creation of a universe where only I exist. When I write, nothing else matters, and that feels absolutely amazing. When I make music it is a little…

We Need Dumb Teachers To Get Smart Kids

Daily Prompt: The New School

You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?

Sports teaches us that the best athletes make the worst coaches. There are exceptions, but generally the assumption is nearly a rule.

Billy Martin, an average baseball player but great coach and manager, invited the great Mickey Mantle to spring training. Mantle by far was one of the most gifted athletes in baseball history. Martin ordered Mantle, “Look, don’t try to teach them anything, because you’ll screw them up. You know how to play, but don’t know what it’s like to teach or work on something.”

That said if starting a school from the ground up I’d tell all the smart people (all those in the upper crust scholastically) to find…

29 December 2013. You Can Learn a Lot From a Cat… Five Lessons in Life from Doctor Seuss…

Voices from Russia

 

00 Dr Seuss message. 27.10.13

______________________________

Ted Geisel, better known as Dr Seuss, wasn’t only a great writer of kid’s books, he was a great fighter for social justice. That’s why he opposed the so-called “Pro-Life” movement. He saw through their rhetoric and realised that they were nothing more than a front for the nastiest wing of the Republican Party. I think that we can and should cut abortions… in fact, most “Pro-Choice” people agree to that (they’re NOT the ravening baby-killers caricatured by the Randall Terrys of this world). Indeed, if we call ourselves Christians, we should NOT work to illegalise abortion… instead, we should look for ways to make it possible for hard-up moms to keep their kids and to help poor families live in dignity. That is, we shouldn’t cut Food Stamps or any other social welfare programme to suck up…

United States veterans’ economic and physical hardship

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video from the USA is called Street Vets – PBS Homeless Veteran Documentary Film.

By John Rowe in the USA:

US veterans face economic and physical hardship

28 December 2013

Veterans in the United States face ongoing economic hardship. Despite being lauded by the media and political establishment as “heroes,” they face high rates of poverty and unemployment.

One in nine veterans is living at or below the poverty line, and 13 percent of homeless people in the US have been in the military.

Employment prospects for veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan are dismal. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of October 2013 they faced an official unemployment rate of 10 percent, compared to a rate of 7.3 percent for the general population. Among those who are disabled as a result of their service in one of the two recent wars, this rate climbs…

Winter Holiday Mornings

Amsterdamming

Amsterdam, Winter Holiday Breakfast

Amsterdam, Winter Holiday Breakfast

I`m not quite in the mood to sort out my thoughts about how this year has been or how the next one should be etc. Maybe later… 🙂

For the time being, I simply want to enjoy this peacefulness, these laaazy mornings when I can afford the luxury of staying in bed until late morning and that of preparing breakfast at home.

What can it be better than doing things in your own rhythm rather than the one dictated by someone or something else?

Hear the angels sing

Espen Stenersrød- From Pen To Heart

Another angel will watch over me this christmas

Christmas is the time to spend with your loved ones, family, friends and people you hold close in your life. It is also the celebration of remembrance and care. The older you get, the more you appreciate what is close to your heart, and you loose more and more people in your life, that you stop and remember on this time a year.

I have many stars and angels shining bright for me, singing me melodies of remembrance during Christmas, and I hold them so close to my heart. It makes Christmas hard for me listening to them sing, but at the same time it feels good hearing their voice, because then I know I am still connected to them and they are joining me in the celebrations as well. Christmas is the time for peace and love.

What I must remember…

Are they banning them because e-cigs are dangerous? Nope, not really. No one’s reached any firm conclusion that they’re harmful and pretty much everyone agrees that they’re less harmful than real cigarettes.

No, the reason public “vaping” needed to be banned is that it simply looks too much like smoking.

Posted on Saturday, December 21, 2013 12:07:39 AM by NetAddicted

In the fallout over Wednesday’s suspension of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson by A&E for anti-gay and racist remarks, GLAAD is experiencing record levels of backlash. “In the five-and-a-half years I’ve worked at GLAAD, I’ve never received so many violently angry phone calls and social media posts attacking GLAAD for us speaking out against these comments,” the media watchdog organization’s vice president of communications Rich Ferraro told TheWrap. He said those reactions range from those who simply believe as Robertson believes to those who feel that GLAAD and A&E’s actions limit the reality star’s free speech.

Voices from Russia

00 RIA-Novosti Infographics. First Russian Smartphone. 2013

______________________________

On Wednesday, Russia announced the rollout of the YotaPhone… the world’s first smartphone with a dual-screen. The Android-based YotaPhone, from modem developer Yota, features a full-colour LCD screen on one side and a black-and-white electronic paper display on the other. The gadget is a premium-class device, but its price is lower than the iPhone, being 18-19,000 Roubles (546-576 USD. 580-613 CAD. 612-646 AUD. 400-422 Euros. 334-353 UK Pounds). Our RIA-NovostiInfographic gives you the technical parameters of the device. Its main distinguishing feature is that it constantly updates information on an additional screen using “electronic ink” technology, the secondary screen has a power usage eight times lower than that of the main LCD. According to the manufacturer, the second screen lets you use the YotaPhone for 50 hours in read-only mode. Both screens are the same size, 4.3 inches diagonally. The LCD screen resolution is…
