(note the words: "hints" and "general plan". the headline is going out of its way to make sure that we don't think that IE 8 is a HUGE release.

I think IE8 will be spying on every mouseclick we make, with direct feeds to NSA/CIA/FBI/Homeland Security.)




*MICROSOFT/CIA + YAHOO/CIA = TWICE the EVIL*


Microsoft/CIA and Yahoo/CIA are discussing a merger:
http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/Investing/Dispatch/070504markets.aspx

(one might ask: aren't they already a single entity? After all, if you try to access Yahoo.com with a version of internet explorer that is before 6.0 Yahoo won't let you in.

maybe after this merger we won't be able to access Yahoo's site at all unless we're using internet explorer. (This is how Microsoft handles its site. You can't access a lot of important pages unless you're doing so with IE.

Folks: Microsoft + Yahoo = End of the Internet's anonymity. the government will have the ability to spy on everyone who uses the Web.)




********SUPERHIGHWAYS: NEW PRISONS********



Dictatorship by superhighway. why didn't Hitler think of doing this to Europe, instead of bombing everything?

Ghouliani, direct accomplice to the murder of 3,000 Americans on 9/11, linked to "superhighways":
http://wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=55695


(they're trying to build another superhighway that runs north and south, from Mexico to Canada.

they're turning the entire US into a New Jersey. New Jersey's Turnpike is a collosal prison, a catastrophe from the perspective of public mental health.)

the cancer of militarism includes minefields everywhere, Depleted Uranium everywhere. the cancer is killing off its host.)

******HEALTH, SCIENCE and LIVING******




*CASSINI HOAX*

"Saturn's Hyperion: a moon with odd craters":
http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap070128.html

(APOD's illustration at the link above is so utterly ludicrous it makes me cry with laughter. doesn't NASA have any quality control regading the fake images it produces of the "Cassini probe of Saturn"?)




*AUTOMOBILES*

Clean energy claim: aluminum in car tanks:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18700750

(this whole business of looking at hydrogen to fuel cars is an operation coming from the CIA. we've already got the technology for electric cars; hydrogen cars are at least a decade away.

it flabbergasts me that there would be people willing to be paid to trick the public into falling for the hydrogen red herring.

Meanwhile, How many GM executives does it take to turn on an electric car?)




*MARIJUANA: WONDER DRUG*

(folks, let's all cure cancer by smoking some pot now.)




********MISC********




*TENNIS*

Federer defeats Nadal in the Hamburg final!
http://www.atptennis.com/1/en/news/news6.asp

(Roger snaps Nadal's incomparable 81 match streak on clay. in addition, Roger has now become a contender again at the French Open, which is starting very shortly.

the score was 2-6, 6-2, 6-0. Nadal was visibly fatigued. Federer must have been amazing to watch starting in the second set. you don't bagel Nadal, even a tired Nadal, unless you're totally on fire.

this is amazing accomplishment. Federer made a tough decision to dump Tony Roche, now he's even won a clay court against Nadal. that makes this year's French Open, with the possibility of Federer continuing with his Grand Slam quest, unbelievably exciting.)




*FRENCH OPEN, 2007*

this year's French Open is a landmark for sports. this is one of those moments that sports fans will remember for years afterwards.

Now that Roger Federer has won Hamburg--bagelling the greatest clay courter of this time along the way--he has served notice that he's a serious contender for the French.

This is no "clown era". Nadal is the two-time defending champion. Nadal is also five years younger than Roger, which is a significant advantage. The later rounds of the tournament get very grueling; youth is served as a rule.

Meanwhile, if Federer wins the French he's halfway to a Grand Slam. In today's tennis, that is an extraordinary feat. it will be one of the greatest years any athlete has had in sports.)




*CINEMA*

Force of Evil (1948):
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0040366/

(Force of Evil, made during a time when the public knew generally what was going on, cannot be appreciated by too many people of this time. The little anti-capitalist jokes that go on will be missed by the generation which is actually capitivated by Seinfeld or Friends.

It is a very curious film. Soon-to-be-Blacklisted Abraham Polonsky doesn't have that strong of an artistic vision, relative to the rest of Hollywood. There a lot of better directed noirs.

However, Polonsky's grim writing does tend to make Force of Evil enjoyable. John Garfield is also very good as the corrupt lawyer who is loyal to his brother. Garfield was a tragic loss; he was solid.

I recommend Force of Evil, but there are better films to help sell film noir with.

btw, isn't it amazing that a group of people would conspire to remove Abraham Polonsky from the culture because of his anti-capitalist views? How do human beings descend into barbarism by preventing artists from creating?
