Ask The Eye,Everyone Needs Some Extra Support

September 29, 2012

Dear Eye View

In a few weeks I’ll be undergoing breast-augmentation surgery. I’m very excited about the operation, and can’t wait to see the results. I am a bit unsure, however, if I should offer any sort of explanation about the major change in the size of my chest to my friends and co-workers. I’m currently a size A, and I’ll be getting size D implants, so they are going to notice a difference. Do I just ignore it and pretend like nothing’s different, or do I address the “elephant” in the room? If so, how on earth do I make that announcement?

Determined

Dear D

I understand your concern. Going from A to D will make quite  a difference in the office. See if  some of the other ladies in the office will create a support group to help you through this  transition. You will need the extra support.Hope the helps.

Police To Take Core Sample of Detroit Driveway Looking For Jimmy Hoffa

September 28, 2012

Police doubt former Teamsters union boss Jimmy Hoffa is buried under a suburban Detroit driveway, but someone else may be, Roseville Police Chief James Berlin said Thursday.

The search for Hoffa, who disappeared in July 1975 in what authorities believe may have been an organized crime hit, has generated thousands of leads, but no remains.  “We are treating this as a John Doe,” Berlin said. “We are not making any claims whatsoever that this is Jimmy Hoffa. We do not believe that it is Jimmy Hoffa.”

 Police will take a core sample of soil from under the driveway Friday and turn it over to a forensic scientist from Michigan State University, Berlin said. Results might be available next week, he said.

Post Office Defaulting Again On $5.6B, Looking To Go On Life Support, Obama Care Checks In The Mail

September 28, 2012

The U.S. Postal Service, on the brink of default on a second multibillion-dollar payment it can’t afford to pay, is sounding a new cautionary note that having squeezed out all the cost savings within its power, the mail agency’s viability now lies almost entirely with Congress.

In an interview, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said the mail agency will be forced to miss the $5.6 billion payment due to the Treasury on Sunday, its second default in as many months. Congress has left Washington until after the November elections, without approving a postal fix.

For more than a year, the Postal Service has been seeking legislation that would allow it to eliminate Saturday mail delivery and reduce its $5 billion annual payment for future retiree health benefits. Since the House failed to act, the post office says it’s been seeking to reassure anxious customers that service will not be disrupted, even with cash levels running perilously low.

Resolution of NFL strike great day for America While Resolution of Chicago Teacher Strike, An Obama No Call..

September 28, 2012

President Barack Obama warmly welcomed the breakthrough deal that will see the NFL’s regular refs return to work. Their temporary replacements angered and baffled football fans coast-to-coast with controversial calls.

Obama thinks “it’s a great day for America,” White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One, as the president headed to Virginia to campaign.

“The president is very pleased that the two sides have come together to resolve their differences and ensure that, going forward, when we watch our favorite teams play in the NFL, we can focus on the players and the game rather than on the officiating,” Carney said.

Mens Health Muscle Rating Is In!, Muscles That Women Love, Platinum Hard Gluts

September 27, 2012

Mens Health Magazine… Muscles rated edition Women love a tight stomach — and a new Western Illinois University study confirms it. Here’s the complete breakdown, from the ladies’ least favorite to most popular. Sure, women love a guy with a chiseled six-pack.  And while each woman has a different favorite muscle, these are at the top of  every female’s “what I notice” list.

8. Large Biceps In a poll of Cosmopolitan readers, 1 out of 5 women  confessed that nice biceps on a man makes them “absolutely melt.”

7. A Big Chest “Women treasure your chest as much as you do  theirs,” says Emily Dubberley, a sex expert based in the UK.

6. Rock-Hard Calves “Women want an overall sense of strength and  fitness,” says Etcoff. “If a man looks as if he can lift something but can’t  run, it looks disproportionate.”

5. Sculpted Shoulders “The shoulder muscles are really the muscles  of love and war,” says Nancy Etcoff, author of Survival of the Prettiest.

4. A Broad Back A wide back is essential for a V-shaped torso, and  women’s attraction to it is ancestral. “When it was important that our mates  protect us from woolly mammoths on the plains, we looked for a gene pool that  could provide us with protection,” says Pega Ren, a sexologist in British  Columbia.

3. A Nice Butt Women check out your butt because it’s a clue to  your worthiness as a physical specimen. If you’re in great shape, it carries  high. Otherwise, your rear end droops like a sack of old potatoes.

2. Powerful Forearms Women see strong forearms and think you can do  everything: Fend off a mugger, build a house, and maintain a dexterous touch  long enough to leave them extremely satisfied. So roll up those sleeves, and let  ’em have a look.

1. 6-Pack Abs You could have biceps the size of bowling balls, but  if you’ve got the beginnings of a gut, any discriminating woman will think twice  before considering you boyfriend material. Their fear: A little excess midriff  meat now means one fat, sloppy man in 10 years.

1-A Massive Gluts Women really love those bulging back pockets. Those platinum hard gluts.

Nestle Launches GPS Tracking Promotion We Will Find You, This Generation WKRP Moment

September 27, 2012

Nestle is using GPS inside its candy bars to track its customers.

The candy company launched the “We Will Find You” campaign in the United Kingdom where GPS tracking devices were placed inside six candy bars. Once the winning candy bar wrapper is opened, the tracking device will go off and Nestle officials will be able to find the exact location of the customer.

“This will alert a secret control room who will scramble a crack team of highly trained individuals,” the commercial states. “They will board a helicopter, find the special bar and give the owner 10,000 pounds ($16,145).”

The six tracking devices will be placed in Kit-Kat, Aero and Yorkie bars in the U.K.

Another lame promotion that will be successful when turkeys can fly.

New Federal Mandated Skimpy Lunch Program Upsets Students “One Size Fits All” Forces A Squeeze

September 25, 2012

In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations. Despite the fact that the new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, it’s not pleasing students.

Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market – for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze.

One size fits all federal program forces a squeeze.

Cracking Your PIN Code Easy For Most People

September 21, 2012

If you lost your ATM card on the street, how easy would it be for someone to correctly guess your PIN and proceed to clean out your savings account? Not long, according to data scientist, Nick Berry, founder of Data Genetics, a Seattle technology consultancy.

Berry analyzed passwords previously from released and exposed password tables and security breaches and filtered the results to just those that were exactly four digits long [0-9]. There are 10,000 possible combinations that the digits 0-9 can be arranged to form a four-digit code.

What he found, he says, was a “staggering lack of imagination” when it comes to selecting passwords. Nearly 11% of the 3.4 million four-digit passwords he analyzed are 1234. The second most popular PIN in is 1111 (6% of passwords), followed by 0000 (2%).

Many of the commonly used passwords are, of course, dates: birthdays, anniversaries, the year you were born, etc. Indeed, using a year, starting with 19__ helps people remember their code, but it also increases its predictability, Berry says. His analysis shows that every single 19__ combination be found in the top 20% of the dataset.

He did add naming your pin number after a refreshing chocolate drink can be more challenging to crack.

 

U.S. Postal Service Asks Elderly Florida Drivers To Stop Crashing Into Post Offices

September 21, 2012

The U.S. Postal Service has taken the unusual step of releasing a set of helpful tips to help reduce the number of drivers in Florida who have been crashing their cars into post offices. This year so far, eight drivers have crashed into post offices in Central Florida alone.

Local ABC affiliate WWSB7 reports that the tips include, “Avoid distracted driving; Proceed slowly and carefully when pulling in, and backing out, of parking spaces; Visibly check to see whether your foot is on the gas pedal or the brake pedal,” and “Visibly check to see if the vehicle is in Park, Reverse or Drive.”

The USPS says the  most common causes of such accidents are when drivers step on the gas instead of the brake pedal and when the driver accelerates thinking the vehicle is in reverse and during the annual food drive.
