Google Me – Google’s Facebook Competitor

GigaOm Reports –

Could Google put together a credible competitor to Facebook? Anything is possible, but so far there’s little reason to believe that the search giant could come up with a service that represented a real threat.

Based on reports from what he calls “reliable sources,” D’Angelo says: “This is not a rumor. This is a real project. There are a large number of people working on it. I am completely confident about this.” He also notes that the service is being modeled on Facebook, that it is “high priority” and that Google is “really scared” of the social network’s growth.

Woman Trades Ass For Asphalt

STLtoday reports –

The state was contending that in August 2007, a city work crew was putting asphalt on an alley behind the 3600 block of California Avenue. The state was contending that a woman who lived in a house on the block approached the foreman of a city crew. According to the state, she asked the foreman of the crew if he’d pour some asphalt on her car pad. According to the state, she offered sexual favors in return for the work. No one disputes that several days later, the foreman and two city workers came back and poured asphalt on the car pad. The foreman and the two workers eventually pleaded guilty to felony stealing and were given probation. They were also fired from their city jobs. The woman was charged with felony stealing, too, and was fired from her job in the city marshal’s office. But she denied that she had agreed to exchange sex for asphalt. She went to trial in St. Louis Circuit Court last week.

NASA Says World To End In 2013, NOT 2012 – Whew!!!

Every so often we hear one of these end-of-the-world stories. There’s a meteor that’s going to hit the earth, or the sun’s going to lose its gravitational pull. And generally we can ignore them because they’re the calculator speculations of some shed-scientist crackpot. Today we heard another: The earth is going to be hit by a barrage of solar flares in 2013 when the sun’s magnetic energy cycle coincides with its 11-year peak in super-powered-sunspot activity — but this time it wasn’t a maverick amateur making the predictions. It was freakin’ NASA. We think the word you’re looking for is “yikes.” The once-in-a-generation occurrence has gone broadly unnoticed in the past but has the potential to destroy all the computer systems on which our modern world relies: Bank accounts, medical records, business records, entire websites and, yes, your Facebook account could all disappear.

Dr. Poon On Trial For Sexual Assault

The Leader-Post of Canada reports –

REGINA — Regina doctor Edward Poon says his examinations of six female patients in the winter of 2008 were not motivated by any kind of sexual purpose, and weren’t intended to sexually arouse either himself or the women. “There’s nothing sexual,” Poon testified Monday, as his sexual assault trial entered its third week. Poon flatly denied some of the allegations made by the women — including that he put his head on one woman’s chest to listen to her heart. He also denied simultaneously touching the breasts and pelvic areas of any of the women, and testified he always wore a glove on his right hand during the examinations, contrary to what some of the complainants previously told court. Poon said he checked for signs of infection with two of the complainants’ clitoral piercings, but did not intentionally touch any of the other women’s clitoral areas during the examinations.
