Those Wacky Canadians – Pole Dancing Classes For Pre-teen Girls

The CalgaryHerald reports –

Summer school for some Canadian girls means Pole 101.
The class is being offered by B.C.’s Tantra Fitness, one of a small but growing number of pole-dancing studios quietly extending their services to underage girls. The Canadian company, which operates in Vancouver and Langley, has taught students age nine and up in regular classes, and has gone as young as five years old in private lessons. There’s even talk of introducing a mommy-and-me pole class. “I just had a baby six months ago and I’m hoping she’ll start to learn pole-dancing as soon as she can,” says Tammy Morris, owner of Tantra Fitness. “Kids love the pole. If anything, it’s hard to get them off it because they’re such naturals.”

Free File Review – Anti-Virus Toolkit

In the past, I’ve tested most of the popular free anti-virus programs, the latest being Microsoft Security Essentials. This application leads the pack with realtime protection against viruses and spyware and with automatic updates. I found that it operates unobtrusively, using few system resources. System scans are relatively snappy (less than 10 minutes). Installation is quick, although Microsoft verifies Windows first. The interface is simple, offering few options. Most people won’t need to adjust any of them, except, perhaps the scan scheduling.
Another essential tool to defeat the nasties is Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware. It is able to remove viruses and spyware that other programs can’t touch. Although the free version does not offer realtime protection or automatic updates, it is still handy to have when a bug slips past your primary anti-virus. This brute also does system scans in less than 10 minutes.
The final piece of my essential AV toolkit is Spybot Search and Destroy. It is the granddaddy of anti-spyware apps and it is showing its age. It offers realtime protection but no automatic updates. System scans normally take 15-20 minutes. A ton of options are available when in the Advanced mode.
I’ve had good results with the above three programs, but no program or group of programs can be 100% effective against all of the bugs on the web.

Food Printer – Still Needs Work

According to PhysOrg.com –

The food printer is at the concept design stage, and would work by storing and refrigerating ingredients and then mixing them, cooking layers of the mixture and printing them onto a serving tray. The food printing process begins with selecting the required food canisters in which ingredients are stored and kept refrigerated. Ingredients are then fed into a mixing chamber and the mixture is extruded and deposited in layers of various and complex combinations of ingredients. During deposition of the layers onto the serving tray the ingredients are either cooked or cooled in the chamber or by heating/cooling tubes attached to the printing head.

Drug Czar Fears Black Market If Pot Is Legalized – Wha?

No, W has not returned to government service. This bit of wisdom is from Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske .

Firedoglake.com reported –

Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske fears the creation of “a black market that would come into play” if California votes to legalize marijuana. Question for Kerli: what the hell would you consider the $45 billion annual industry in the US that exists despite marijuana prohibition? Kerlikowske made the curious remarks to NPR’s Michel Martin on Friday when questioned about the administration’s stance on marijuana legalization. Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske fears the creation of “a black market that would come into play” if California votes to legalize marijuana.
