Discussing the B word

so i came across this very concious women and the media blog and was drawn to a post about the word bitch by Veronica Arreola. the post has lots of good points and i like the fact that she embraces the word instead of totally put it down.

from her post:
"1] I do believe we can reclaim the word and take the edge off if we embrace what people want us to feel bad about when they call us that - in other words, be proud that we’re strong, opinionated women. Don’t let people use that word on you to make you feel bad.

2] Bitch was central to the sexism in the Presidential campaign. Thus, I believe that it is central to our discussion on media, politics, and feminism to look at how we personally feel about the word and when it is appropriate to use it.

3] As a mom, I have to come to place where I can discuss this with my daughter one day. She’s only five, so I have a few years. But since I have contributed to Bitch magazine in the past and hope to do more, that conversation may happen before other parents. I’m waiting for the day she ends up telling her whole class that “Mommy is in Bitch!” and I get the phone call from the teacher."

Environmental fugitives

The government is starting a different kind of most-wanted list — for environmental fugitives accused of assaulting nature.

These fugitives allegedly smuggled chemicals that eat away the Earth's protective ozone layer, dumped hazardous waste into oceans and rivers and trafficked in polluting cars.

And now the government wants help in tracking them down.

In its own version of the FBI most-wanted list, and the first to focus on environmental crimes, the Environmental Protection Agency is unveiling a roster of 23 fugitives, complete with mug shots and descriptions of the charges on its Web site at

A top EPA enforcement official said the people on the list represent the "brazen universe of people that are evading the law." Many face years in prison and some charges could result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.

"They are charged with environmental crimes and they should be brought before the criminal justice system and have their day in court," said Pete Rosenberg, a director in the agency's criminal enforcement division.

On display will be John Karayannides, who allegedly helped orchestrate the dumping of 487 tons of wheat tainted with diesel fuel into the South China Sea in 1998. Karayannides is believed to have fled to Athens, Greece.

Also at large are the father and son team of Carlos and Allesandro Giordano, who were arrested in 2003 as the owners of Autodelta USA, a company that was illegally importing and selling Alfa Romeos that did not meet U.S. emission or safety standards. The two men are believed to be hiding out in Italy.

Raul Chavez-Beltran, another fugitive on the list, ran an environmental cleanup company in El Paso, Texas, that is accused of transporting hazardous waste from factories along the Mexican border and improperly disposing and storing it in the U.S. In one case, he allegedly stockpiled mercury-laced soil from an environmental spill in a warehouse.

The launch of the most-wanted list comes as EPA's criminal enforcement has ebbed. In fiscal 2008, the EPA opened 319 criminal enforcement cases, down from 425 in fiscal 2004. And criminal prosecutors charged only 176 defendants with environmental crimes, the fewest in five years.

Tim Burton takes on Alice in Wonderland

"In 2010 Tim Burton will take on the iconic Lewis Carroll story of 'Alice in Wonderland' and translate it to the silver screen in a way that only Tim Burton can. This, surely darker, take on the beloved classic has already brought in such actors and actresses as Johnny Depp to portray the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter to portray the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway to portray the White Queen, (Both queens a strange choice for 'Alice in Wonderland' considering they were not in the original book, they were in Lewis Carroll's sequel book 'Through the Looking Glass'.) Alan Rickman to portray the Caterpillar, Matt Lucas to portray Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and relative new comer Australian actress Mia Wasikowska to portray Alice."

cant wait for this to come out :)


NAIROBI, Kenya - The United Nations said Tuesday that a Somali stoned to death by Islamist militants after she had been accused of adultery was a 13-year-old girl who had been raped while visiting her grandmother.

In the first such public killing by the militants in about two years, she was placed in a hole and stoned to death on Oct. 28 in a rebel-held port city, Kismayu, in front of a crowd, after local leaders said she was guilty under Shariah, the legal code of Islam based on the Koran.

Haitian school collapses...

Haitians help victims of the College Promesse Evangelique school that collapsed on November 7, 2008 in Petion-ville, Haiti. More than a dozen people were killed when the school in the Port-au-Prince suburb with 700 pupils collapsed Friday, a police spokesman said. The first floor of the
three-storey building collapsed and "dragged down the rest of the building as the pupils were in class," said one distraught woman who had hurried to the school to find her child.
