Michelle Obama: First Lady of Junk Science



Michelle Malkin

While her husband may have paid lip service to ending the abuse of science for "politics or ideology," first lady Michelle Obama gave herself a super-sized waiver. Two of her showcase social engineering campaigns -- tax preferences for breast-pumping working mothers and expanded nutrition labels -- are based on distorting or dismissing the prevailing public health literature.
Just as the White House costumed Obamacare activists in white lab coats, the fashionable Mrs. O has cloaked her meddling anti-obesity crusade in medical fakery.

Connie Schultz

Late last month, a citizens brigade of young people created a human chain at the gates of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo to prevent thieves from escaping with priceless treasures.

Towing Captains Honored for Heroism

With over 600 tow boats spread across the country responding to over 60,000 routine requests from boaters for on-the-water assistance, the law of averages dictates that the captains of these vessels are bound to run into life-threatening emergencies. And, as with any heroic act, the captain is faced with the split-second decision to either step in – putting them in harms way to try to save the individual – or to call for help.

U.S. Industrial Property Market Shows Definitive Signs of Entering Recovery Cycle


--Inland Empire, Chicago, Charleston, Cincinnati, Little Rock, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Savannah, Dallas, New Jersey Lead Charge as Q4 2010 Shows
Nearly 30 MSF of Positive Absorption; Opportune Time for Tenant Leasing--

Coinciding with a noticeably improved United States office market, the national industrial property sector absorbed 28.6 million square feet of space during the fourth quarter of 2010, propelling what had been a net loss for the year into a solid gain, according to new quarterly research on the U.S. industrial market from Colliers International. This robust fourth quarter activity likely heralds the beginning of the next up cycle for the industrial sector as demand for warehouse space — fueled by an increase in import and export activity and improving appetite for consumer goods — is expected to rise.

Bookshelves Put Wasted Space to Work



Bookshelves Put Wasted Space to Work
Q: The only thing wrong with our new apartment is the entry hall. It's long and narrow, and going down to the living room is kind of like walking through a dark tunnel. We don't own the apartment, so the walls aren't going anywhere.
How can we "open up" that tunnel?
 A: Designer Gail Shields-Miller (shieldsinteriors.com) has several smart answers to your question, summed up in the photo of the hallway in a New York apartment

'Dead Space 2' is Out of This World



Dead Space 2
When the original "Dead Space" was released, it immediately became my favorite survival-horror game to date. I loved fighting mutated Necromorphs with exotic weaponry, while navigating through the dangers of a floating space hulk. Much to my delight, "Dead Space 2" multiplies these fun factors, adds several new features and improves old ones.

Here's a New Wrinkle: Love Your Laundry Room!



Here's a New Wrinkle: Love Your Laundry Room!
Q: Nobody ever tells you how to make a laundry room look as good as it works. We are bumping out the kitchen, and there's space for both a laundry room and a bath. Or should we put them together and make it one big, all-in-one room? That way we'd only need one sink.
A: Don't be "penny-wise and pound-foolish," as the English would say, meaning, as we Americans say, "Ya get whacha pay for!" You're talking about two very different kinds of rooms, both utilitarian but one public and the other very private. Trying to mix them is "pound-foolish." Buy the wall that separates them and spring for the second sink. A mere pittance compared to the overall cost of your remodeling project, it will return dividends for your family now and for the value of your house -- should you be selling in the future.

Paramus Mayor Richard LaBarbiera pens Letter to the Editor on Officer’s Shooting



Richard LaBarbiera
Mayor Richard LaBarbiera has released the following Letter to the Editor to provide an update on the condition of Paramus Police Officer Rachel Morgan and provide closure on the traumatic events of the past week and a look forward to the recovery of Officer Morgan and the next steps in dealing with this tragedy. The text of the letter is below:

To the Editor,

This past week showed us the sad depths that society can sink to when a depraved young man shockingly fired several rounds at Officer Rachel Morgan on Sunday night, seriously injuring her and leading to his own death later in the week. I’m happy to report that Rachel is progressing well and the news to date has been nothing but positive; she is on the road to recovery. It is a testament to the training she received and her judgment, which may have saved her life. Rachel will be missed in the department as she recovers, but I’m sure that our police officers will remember her heroism every day and carry it with them as they perform their duties.

Kratos Cracks Skulls in 'God of War: Ghost of Sparta'



God of War: Ghost of Sparta
It's no surprise that action fans salivate at the mere mention of Sony's God of War saga. This over-the-top adventure lets them control the Spartan warrior Kratos as he becomes the mighty God of War and then ultimately takes revenge on his father Zeus. Sure, the console trilogy may be over, but "God of War: Ghost of Sparta" on the PSP offers additional history on Kratos.
