The Word! 005


I didn’t think it would go this far, yet now I can’t stop. What is becoming if all this mumbo jumbo? Fill yourself up on some information that has been processed through the filter of JB and regurgitated out to you in this oh-so-clever format. It’s all here: free music, science, politics, technology, school, movies, health issues, oil issues, environmental issues. What else can I offer you. Let me know; because simply put I run out of material. Haha jk I am the never ending source of all info and media. BUAHAHAHAHA (evil laugh) but really I’m not evil so check it; it’s The Word! 005.

Epic Bieber Sounds

So you either are on 1 of two sides of the fence with this kid, hate his cyborg/boyish charm and 90’s boy band success or worship his every move love him.  I am not a pre-pubescent girl or some Record Exec seeing $$$$ so I’m not a fan because this is just some kid who doesn’t actually have anything to do with his records besides being a face and he … …, well I won’t go into full detail on my disdain for the boy but I will say there is 1 way I do like my Bieber.  Slowed down 800%!  This is his song “U Smile” but the speed, or lack thereof, makes this sound like some epic Halo/Braveheart/Lord of the Rings track.  It is pretty cool; yes I said something from this teenage cyborg is pretty cool.  This song is over 30 min long so jump around and listen or try and go the distance.  Check it out, see what you think.

Place Calls Directly From Gmail With Google Voice

Maybe you all haven’t heard about Google Voice, maybe you have.  I was introduced about a year ago while the product was still in beta and have been a fan ever since.  I got a new, free phone number that transfers all calls made to it to my cell phone or house phone and now straight to my laptop.  While I have my Google Chrome web browser open or anytime I’m in Gmail I can send and receive free calls from my new free number.  It will use your cpu’s mic and audio and has my full address book in it so I can start typing in a name and call them without looking up or knowing the number.  I feel that the uses for this will keep growing and soon I won’t be using a phone in the sense of the”phone” that we know now. End result, if you have wifi and a iPod/CPU/Phone with wifi/Laptop/iPad/etc., you can make a completely free call to anyone in the US!

Youtube Full Length Movies

I feel like this is loooong overdue, right?  It seems only natural that my site for online videos would host full length movies.  I mean there are tons of illegal sites and now Hulu and Netflix offer pay options for streaming movies and TV shows.  So Youtube has now jumped on the wagon and offers a not so great selection, but I feel it has promise.  Right now the titles consist of older kinda lame movies or cheap indy’s and cheaper indy’s that show “TnA” in hopes you will click.  There is also movies that you can purchase that are a little better and can watch instantly.  Anyways it’s about time Youtube, now get to work on making this better and we can talk.

Oil Eating Microbe Discovered in Gulf

Researchers from Lawrence Berkley National Labrotory led by Terry Hazen have collected over 200 samples from over 17 different sites in the Gulf of Mexico looking for microbial activity from a deepwater dispersed oil plume.  There research has shown that a newly discovered microbe that is now flourishing in the deep cold waters of the Gulf has a great potential to help dispose of oil plumes in the deep-sea.  Hazen has suggested that the microbe has spawned over a long period of time due to natural oil seeps but has spread immensely since the BP oil spill.

San Francisco Mayor Plans Underwater Wind Farm

San Franciscan Mayor Gavin Newsom is proposing a new Commercial scale Wave Generating Project, the first in California history in hopes to remove the polluting oil platforms.  The plan is to set up an “inverted/ underwater wind farm” using the energy created by the Wave Generating Platforms and harvesting it under the Golden Gate Bridge to bring power to the city.  The enviromental issues of animals and life in the area is a major concern for their safety with all this new underwater machinery.  Supposing that the local enviroment can be kept safe this idea sounds like the best thing since sliced bread.  Water from rivers and streams is already use in creating energy in hydroelectric plants across the nation, this is just one step further.  Create the water momentum to use to create energy.  I love it!

Wyclef Jean Keeping Supporters Hopeful in Presidential Bid for Haiti

After the Electoral Commission for the Presidential Candidates of Haiti excluded Wyclef from the official candidate list, he is appealing to young people, the poor, and the average man in Haiti to keep hope and reassuring them he will still run.  People in the nation feel that because Wyclef is not from a political background he could have a new view on their government and bring them out of their recent tragedies and economic perils. Wyclef says about the ruling on Friday, “Though I disagree with the ruling, I respectfully accept the committee’s final decision, and I urge my supporters to do the same.”  He changed course on Sunday, promising to file an appeal and renewing hopes among his backers.  “Tomorrow our Lawyers are appealing the decision of the CEP,” he wrote Sunday on his Twitter account “We have met all the requirements set by the laws. And the law must be Respected.”  The Authorities were worried about poeple rioting and becoming unruly based on the decision since Wyclef has so many fans and followers amongst the Haitian youth.  He urged his folowers to be peaceful and respectful.  Wyclef also goes on to say “They don’t want young people to go to power. It’s not just about the residency. There are many people that don’t live here that are in power,” he says. “They see the youth is with Wyclef, and the youth is the majority, so they got scared.”  Stay tuned as this story continues to unfold.  WYCLEF FOR PREZ!!!!!!!!

Smoking in Movies Deserving of an “R” Rating?

I’m curious to hear people’s opinion about this.  Everyone knows smoking is bad for you, it will kill you.  Well except for my Nana who has been smoking for probably 7o years; how come everyone knows an old person who’s been smoking forever and not died yet, but so many others with cancer who have died?  OK back to the topic, Hollywood maybe be getting a makeover on their rating system.  The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a statement saying that Hollywoods depiction of smoking in movies encourages kids to pick up the habit.  They are requesting that any movie with smoking get an R rating.  I feel this maybe be a little overboard, but then again I don’t really have a problem with this.  I’m on the fence about this issue.  As far as artistic right you can still smoke it up in your film you just have to rate the movie R, getting less viewers by doing that though.  Or follow suit and drop the cigs and keep your views up.  Is this just another form of American censorship or a campaign for a healthier lifestyle for our children. Hollywood has a decision to make.
