Black Panther

"When the Skrulls come to town, it's all-out war in Wakanda. The alien invaders have war ships, advanced technology, super-powered soldiers and an army that outnumbers the Wakandans ten to one."

I read this last night and it rocked. Storm is dressed in a cat battle suit in a few scenes. Awesome!

HIV Achilles Heal

"HIV researchers at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston (UT Medical) believe they have uncovered the Achilles heel in the armor of the HIV virus. The weak spot is hidden in the HIV envelope protein gp120, essential for HIV's attachment to host cells." It looks as if trials will offer results within 5 years. My partner works in the HIV/STD health field and he says this is huge news. There have been many other treatments, but this is very promising.

Ugh! (Posted a over year ago)

Under construction in Mecca, the Abraj Al Bait Towers. What was the inspiration for that monstrosity? Batman's Gotham city? What is with that clock? Will it be the biggest clock in the world? Click on image to enlarge.

UPDATE: I take back the comment. The tower is very cool.
It looks as if it is a set from a movie.
The first pic shows a plan of development already in action that expects the construction, actual in the neighborhoods of the "Ka'drink" (sp.)

Swingtown

"From the director of "Big Love" and "Rome," traces two generations of friends and neighbors as they forge intimate connections and explore new freedoms during the culturally transformative decade of the 1970s. It portrays the ever-shifting “swing” of the pendulum that reflected the change in America's collective value system -- morally, politically and socially".

If you have not been watching this show, you should catch up. I would rather see the sexual content on Swingtown than any of those crime shows with the rape and murder it contains every evening.

Swingtown now airs on Fridays.

Iconography

"Ancient script, traditional motifs, cuddly cartoon characters—the Beijing Olympics’ iconography is carefully calculated, and in China, it’s everywhere.

The emblem contains two politically charged components, neither of which is immediately recognizable to those not familiar with Chinese characters or the country’s art history. The dancing figure at the center of the emblem is based upon the Chinese character 京 (jing), meaning “capital,” often used as simple shorthand for Beijing (北京, literally “north capital”); it is rendered in a style evocative of China’s ancient seal script. The logo is made to look like a Chinese block seal—a stamp still used to mark official approval on documents. In concert, those two elements strongly imply an official seal designed to the specifications of the propagandistic demands of the Chinese government and its corporate partners".

The Legion of Super-Heroes is a group of super-powered teenagers from 1,000 years in the future who are inspired by the legend of Superman. The Legion story, which saw the young heroes time-traveling back to visit a young Clark Kent, recently inspired a Warner Bros. animated TV series.

The Beijing Taxi Cards are a simple set of palm sized ‘flip’ cards, featuring the most popular attractions, venues and destinations in Beijing. Lightweight and small, they fit easily in a handbag or pocket and can clip to a backpack or key ring. While other taxi guides and flash cards are available, they either contain too little information or so much that they become impractical to carry around.

Gay Hero Franchise

Comics legend Stan Lee has signed a deal with acclaimed novelist Perry Moore, author of the award-winning gay superhero novel Hero. The two creators announced their new business partnership at the Comic-Con International.

Hero is the first in a series of fantasy novels by openly gay film producer and novelist Perry Moore. Hero tells the story of a teenage superhero, Thom Creed, who must deal with his ex-superhero father's disgrace, his own sexuality, and a murderer stalking the world's heroes.

Lee praised Moore’s Hero, calling the book’s young gay protagonist “a one-of-a-kind hero for the future.”

Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds

"Last summer, DC Comics writer Geoff Johns surprised readers with a little story he called Sinestro Corps War, juggling a multitude of villains and ring-wearing heroes in a space-based epic that became one of DC's most successful events of 2007.

This year, Johns will join with artist George Perez to tell another epic story about a team of ring-wearing heroes in Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds, the oversized five-issue mini-series that begins on August 20th".
